Live Today…

TODAY: 

Let go of what has passed. Let go of what may come.

Let go of what is happening now. 

Don’t try to figure anything out. Don’t try to make anything happen. 

Relax, right now, and rest. 

Tilopa 

ONE WORD: 

Live!

COLOUR:

Green – Today, after using every tool I know, to feel ‘better.’ I saw in my minds eye, during a meditation a Green Heart, the colour becoming deeper and deeper…

After, I reached for a bottle of my Colour Matrix – Green Heart of All Things – to use myself…it felt so right! I sprayed around my heart, all of my body, then the room. I felt uplifted, lighter in my heart…

 

HOW I FEEL:

‘Most days it looks as if we live in the comedy zone dimension, filled with scary clowns.’

Gillian Macbeth-Louthan

I have become more aware of what I watch (TV/You Tube/News/Twitter etc) and have begun to read less about what is, what’s coming and what is ahead. This way its easier to stay true to my authentic nature. I am also far more attentive of the foods I select, using the best quality food and drink I can afford. This way we can remain positive, fresh and light. 

There are times when we all run back into old tired patterns of a well worn path, because as we step towards what is said to be all light, we find ourselves in a place of confusion, sadness and fatigue… 

PHYSICALLY:

‘Your body will need all the help you can give it to integrate these new energies.’

Celia Fenn 

While integrating new energy, I usually feel sensitive, feel everything too deeply and  then I sense what’s coming next – I feel ill at ease, often ’sick to the stomach…’ and my heart cries out to the world! 

On such days I rest more, and give myself what ever feels right to get me through, knowing that ‘this too shall pass…’ 

INSIGHTS:

‘Many of us are ashamed by the actions of our species.’ 

If we don’t become attentive inside our own personal ‘bubble of life’, we will go through phases of being unable to manage our lives. Many may reach rock bottom before change becomes possible (been there), others will burn out, many will simply leave… 

For myself, I use techniques and processes daily. I meditate, listen to my body and pay careful attention to my needs. I often stay home for weeks, when the energies are fragmented out there…here in my own safe haven, I am assured of a feeling of balance and harmony.

There are times when one has to dig deep to stay ‘real and true’, to stay in that balanced place, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Making sure that self talk is not angry, frustrated, forlorn or defeated… 

THE COLLECTIVE: 

“Your soul knows the geography of your destiny.”

John O’Donohue

You and I can not save the world! Does She need saving (another subject)? We can save ourselves as we live though this extraordinary time on earth, by being aware, not of others and their needs – but our own.

Sit tight with big decisions. Focus on what you wish to let go of – job, home, name, friends, relationships…Do not let doubt or uncertainty stop you.

Make peace with your choices, make space for what’s coming. Allow. Embrace all that is coming towards you and who you are becoming. Begin to find where you belong, listen to your heart and go where you feel led to be…Go!

AFFIRMATION:

“I am perfect just the way I AM”

Springtime Is Awakening…

“And the endlessly long winter had at last turned to Spring.
From life to death and back again to life.
It was indeed the greatest magic in the world.”

Spring is a magical time of year during which nature uses vibrant colours to signal the coming of longer, brighter and warmer days ahead. It is also a wonderful time to meet new people, catch up with friends, plan holidays in the sun, and see if perhaps something even more than beautiful spring flowers, might begin to blossom. Lets go full steam ahead into Summer!

“Here, also, the future was cried aloud by the wind through the rocks, so that all those who heard would shiver

and then the liquid spring song of the thrush, would make all the beauty of moonlight and sunlight blend together

making it true, so true, that happiness must come again” 

Elyne Mitchell

And whispered to her neighbor:
    “Winter is dead.”

Life Is For LIVING…

945754_567372473284759_748779180_n

“We’re the bridge across forever,

arching above the sea,

adventuring for our pleasure,

living mysteries for the fun of it,

choosing disasters, triumphs, challenges, impossible odds,

testing ourselves over and again,

learning love and love and love!” 


Richard Bach

TODAY: Warm sunshine, revealing a brighter light and clearer vision…

IN ONE WORD: Trust!

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Royal Blue

HOW I FEEL: I have been extra focused of late, working diligently at clearing the last of my old patterns…Suddenly new energy seemed to enfold me and nudge me gently through the few intense challenges earlier this week…finally I sensed joy and excitement! A new beginning awaits us ALL!

PHYSICALLY: Good. Dealing with change, ‘shifts’ and letting go –  causing some aches and pains…

INSIGHTS: Breath deeply…now, look deeply into your heart and ask for higher guidance. Then, with trust and gentleness, begin to live anew…
‘We need time to replenish – to develop new fat, new muscle, new skin; to trust that the inner journey has removed the masks and will eventually reveal a face that is more our own.’*

THE COLLECTIVE: Many recent experiences have been had, all for the greater good. We as mere mortals, need to surrender to whatever unfolds, holding ourselves accountable for our own lives, how we honour life here on this sweet Earth, as well as honouring all humanity, ourselves and those close to us…

AFFIRMATION: “I Love and believe in myself”

but those are the days when champions are created.” ♥

This Life is Yours…

Awesome-View-For-Easter-Valley-

“What can I do with my happiness?

How can I keep it, conceal it,

bury it where I may never lose it?

I want to kneel as it falls over me like rain,

gather it up with lace and silk,

and press it over myself again.”

Anais Nin

TODAY: Lighter, lifting, blue sky, scattered clouds…a pleasant Easter Saturday, after a heavier day yesterday.

IN ONE WORD: Life is a GIFT

COLOUR FOR TODAY: Pink

HOW I FEEL: Since yesterday evening I have felt a great ‘heart opening.’ I feel squeezed with love, humility and reverence. My heart feels happier and I feel deeply grateful, for all that I have lived, and continue to live…Last night tears filled my eyes and the appropriate words were unimportant and without the depth I felt and still feel…

INSIGHTS: Stand a little taller today, breath a little deeper today, reach higher and walk towards your dreams…

THE COLLECTIVE: A life of inner peace, being harmonious and without stress, is the best type of existence. Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything or anyone, even if your outer world seems upset.

AFFIRMATION: “I invite Joy and Happiness into my life always…”

“This life is yours.

Take the power to choose what you want to do and do it well.

Take the power to love what you want in life

and love it honestly.

Take the power to walk in the forest

and be a part of nature.

Take the power to control your own life.

No one else can do it for you.

Take the power to make your life happy.”

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Rainbow
I FEEL: My Soul nourishes me and shows how much I am loved…I am more, I know more, I am becoming more…My Soul tells me so.

INSIGHTS: Seeking new levels of joy. Join me!? We will find our joy and passion by following the yearnings of our hearts…

 “The days come and go. 
If we do not use the gifts they bring, 
they say nothing and carry them silently away. 
Life is a daring adventure, meant to be experienced with love.”

Never lose FAITH…

There is no use trying, said Alice; one can’t believe impossible things.

I dare say you haven’t had much practice, said the Queen.

When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day.

Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.

Lewis Carroll

TODAY: There is a sense of calm and stillness here…the sky shrouded in soft dense clouds. It gives me a sense of being in a safe bubble, whilst life ‘out there’ continues in a myriad of different ways…  

IN ONE WORD: Nourishment

COLOUR FOR TODAY: Aquamarine

HOW I FEEL: Uplifted, faith restored deep within. A new understanding has come to me on so many levels.

PHYSICALLY: Stable, balanced, restored, nourished.

INSIGHTS: Step forward and take a very serious look behind your eyes and see yourself, really see yourself! Go deep, into the oceans of your past and into your cosmic heart…Wake up to who you truly are.

Time speeds by, yet life feels slow, delayed…patience and alertness is needed. Let life wash over you, but stand tall and strong. Align to the vision and purpose of your higher self. Expand your capacity to love, be tender, compassion, tolerant and fearless. You DO know the way…

THE COLLECTIVE: Its a good time to enjoy your life, to do things that nourish and enrich you. Take ‘time out’ from trying to understand or to ‘fix it…’

Travel to a sacred place that feeds your heart and soul, do things you have been longing for, but have put on hold…music, the opera, a museum, a massage, sit quietly at a riverside, walk in Nature, eat ice-cream, treat yourself to a luxury hotel stay…do whatever it takes, but nourish your heart and soul!

AFFIRMATION: “I am perfect whole and complete…”

60a4dfb5103713369b44850ec8ffda5c

” I will only move as quickly as the slowest part of me can go.  

This is a pledge not to leave any aspect of myself behind,

not to over-ride any aspect that needs to pause,

needs an inner story to come to the surface.

It could be emotional, mental, spiritual or physical.  

I will pause and listen.”
