The Veil of Avalon…

13255962_1350474428303071_2624161466964954327_n

‘Spirits across the moon cast night,
Shadows above the tree tops high.
I hear the songs of a distant past,
As my heart beats quickly and fast…’

I could not resist selecting ‘VEIL OF AVALON’ as today’s suggested Essence, on my Facebook – Colour Matrix Page…Yesterday the energies here, felt powerful, overwhelming at times.

13240636_1031548126923984_8126138648412075768_n

I felt it all day, and there were moments, when the tears flowed…my heart felt wide open. And last night I sensed the many levels and layers of reality floating through my house. At times I felt unsettled.

Earlier in the day, after much rain, a magnificent bright Rainbow arced over the Glastonbury Tor. It felt intense and magical! Yet, I woke today, to a dense misty day…everything felt shrouded, hidden…it was truly mystical…

At the time of Wesak (20-22May), when the veil is thinnest, we are able to go deeper into the mystery.

I noticed last night too, other levels of life moving through my home…I sensed other dimensions, and felt other beings. At times it was eerily still and there were moments when I saw veiled beings…

The magic of living in Avalon…

The Magic of Avalon…

photo 2 copy

“Above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”
Roald Dahl

TODAY: Its early, the air outside it very fresh and clear. But there is a chill; soft, moist, gentle and silent. The sky is softly pink, the first birds have landed in the courtyard to feed. Life is good. I feel at peace with my world.

IN ONE WORD: Gentleness

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Leafy Green

Glasto abbey:mist

HOW I FEEL: “A new life will slowly unfold…allow it to be so. Let each day bring to you new experiences and most of all, let the love shine through you and radiate out to all those around you.” 
My path is becoming a more deeply spiritual life, each day, quite solitary, but the energy of Glastonbury and ‘free-spirit attitude’ here (I am a city girl actually), has allowed me the time and space to do a level of inner work, I never anticipated…

GOG AND MAGOG

During this year, I have at last fully understood the reasons and the purpose of me moving down from London, to live in Glastonbury, 8 years ago. And you know, if feels as if I have been here for eternity, and then there are days when I feel as if I have only recently arrived, and I am still settling in…Ah, the mystery and magic of Avalon…

“I have stepped onto a new Timeline and I wait there, resting for the out-breath of God…” Ashtara

HOLY THORN RIBBONS

INSIGHTS: Be aware of your own limits. I feel that we are all, only now, getting our ‘second wind.’ This year has been challenging in very different ways from what we have known and understood. I am sensing that we are finally beginning to regain balance and strength. But, there will be days when we feel overtired, overwhelmed, too weak to go about your usual routine. When you feel this, stop, rest, be kind, allow yourself time to regroup and refresh.

ABBEY ORCHARD '13

THE COLLECTIVE: Your holy heart, when you begin to feel it fully, will invite you into pain you have long ago locked away. First, your own personal unresolved anguish. Then, the collective pain of all you have forgotten: a history remembered by the stardust in your cells, the rust in your bones. And you will want to close it. You will want to lock it all back up again, but this you mustn’t do, because underneath that is your perfect love waiting for its chance to change your life.*

Celebrating the Earth – Is the Spring here?

1833025_4f76a656

“Is the spring coming?” he said. “What is it like?”…
“It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine…”
― Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

MY DAY: Is Spring here? I am not sure. Crisp clear cold air, without the expected golden sunshine above – but the delightful daffodils show their beautiful faces regardless. Followed by rain, wind and more cloud.

MY WORD: Time for an ‘Adventure!’

SOUL COLOUR: I see swirls of Green and yellow…

38b671e2011277354fa79d28c596d46e

HOW I FEEL:

“Pay the thunder no mind – listen to the birds.”
Ready for the new! To shift, to move, to experience, to change, to be fully accepting. To grow, to allow, to trust to surrender, to dance!

BODY FEELS: Healing, resting, restoring, stronger and alive!

springtime-2-638

MY INSIGHTS:

“If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day.”

E.B White

We are activating codes from deep within our hearts to assist our evolution to soar! We are transforming ourselves on every possible level.

THE COLLECTIVE: Nourish the body, get sufficient sleep, exercise, meditate, study, spend time in nature, contemplate and reflect more. Pay careful attention to your thoughts and spoken words…live.

Expose yourself to great art. Be creative. Help others. Aspire to worthy things, be gracious and kind, appreciate Nature, the Earth and All That Is…Allow your wisdom to shine through, have loving healthy thoughts and ideas…

“And the secret garden bloomed and bloomed
and every morning revealed new miracles.”

Peace In Your Heart…

“I am afraid too, like all my fellow men,

of the future too heavy with mystery and too wholly new,

towards which Time is driving me…

Then like these men, I wonder where life is leading me…”

TODAY: “Rain rain go away…come again another day…”
I woke to a wet and dewy day. I snuggled down and slept some more…Oh, joy its a holiday today! It has rained all night. We have had constant rain for many days now, except for one day last week. Yet, here in magical Glastonbury, there is always more at work…many layers of reality.

To me, this day feels fresh, peaceful, soft and gently veiled from the rest of the world.

ONE WORD: Surrender

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Orange

HOW I FEEL:

“There is a silence into which the world cannot intrude.

There is an ancient peace you carry in your heart and have not lost.

Discover it.”
A Course in Miracles

PARTING THE WATERS 2:IMG_0369:FB

The powerful Moon of the 29th is still lingering. My creativity and divine guidance seemed heightened. I have felt especially close to my Wisdom Self, and have felt a deep reverence and gratitude for All that I AM, and All That Is…

Ah, the shifts, changes, ideas, creations! Ecstatic moments of otherworldly energies, messages, insights, nudges and alchemical action…Its hard to put these feelings down, in a simplistic word…

1383078_452798031499849_1006752919_n

Over the past few days, I have begun to creating my third (and final) Organic Perfume – Angel of Avalon. I also feel another Essence about to be ‘birthed.’
It will be known as ‘Wandering Star-Archangel Israel’ and has a deep and interesting purpose and interpretation. I have started to put together the next Newsletter too.*

270415_10151295836206303_2023838207_n

INSIGHTS: Yes, what has been constant is rain…The Great Mother cleared and cleared and wept and wept…as we gently allow our healing hearts to open wider. Growing and awakening over and over –  like the tides…I feel as if a new chapter has begun for many of us, some will have to stop a while and pay attention. You will then notice that you are being guided in a new direction…Never has there been a more opportune time for you to change your course of direction!

1518642_741191922621883_959539497407834659_n

THE COLLECTIVE: Be good to each other.
 And do not look outside of yourself for the leader.
Make the most of this new phase, as it settles in. It is an energy that enables us to create more easily, allowing new doors to open and many new opportunities to present themselves. Be aware of what you are thinking and so creating – and take responsibility for it, but remember, not all our creations are conscious.

AFFIRMATION: “I love and approve of myself…”

The Isle of Avalon

10530732_10152547898309530_7970489356719439635_n

Many a secret and many a myth hath collected in this very Earth.

Its consecrated Holiness allows for many who desire to stand still upon the very same, that which is known as Avalon!

Rich in memory, rich in stories, Avalon re-awakens to find its Holy Place and former Glory.

Upon this land (we) will breath a sound and awaken from the darkness of a deep sleep….

Ashtara’Ra

Recently I have been asked why I live in Glastonbury and what brought me here…previously a ‘city girl’, and with my love of Corfu, where I have discovered my rich ancestral background…then, why here?

After being ‘ill’ for several years with ‘heart issues, that led to endless hospital visits and a surgical procedure, I needed time to heal my heart, emotionally and physically…and make a fresh start.

I took out a map of the UK, unfolded it, placed it on the floor, closed my eyes and pointed to a spot. From that moment, every movement towards getting here, fell into place as if by magic.

COURTYARD GARDEN_n

My 7 years here have been a rich and varied journey, reaching a depth of clearing, healing, acceptance and understanding – along with forgiveness and a newfound heart connection with All That Is, bringing with that a deep love for Mother Mary, Magdalene and this Sacred Earth.

No, it has not been easy. But every moment has been cathartic and a gift. I share some of the histories, myth and stories here…Avalon will always be a place rich in tradition and mystery.

MAGDALENE 016Kopia

Through the ages, many have written of it, but no one knows the truth. Did Avalon exist? Does it still? Where is it? What is it? No one knows, though the legends abound. In all likelihood, Avalon will always remain a mystery.

1654455_634305826642441_700067858_n

Upon a high tor, a tower is struck by lightening, masonry falls to the Ground. But, while the physical tower is shattered, a spiral tower of crystal remains. About the tor, the signs of the zodiac glow within the land. An owl flies upward.

From The Arthurian Tarot – 


The word “Avalon” is from the British word lava, which means apple. Hence, Avalon is known as “The Island of Apples.” An actual Avallon (note the alternate spelling) exists in Burgundy.

The most famous setting for Avalon is in the King Arthur legends. Supposedly, Arthur’s sword, Excalibur, was forged on the mystic Isle of Avalon. When Arthur was mortally wounded in battle with Mordred, he was carried to the Isle of Avalon so that his wounds might be attended to by the priestesses…

This is the most common idea regarding Avalon, presented to us by the man known as Geoffrey of Monmouth, or Geoffrey Arthur. His History written about 1136, gives a history of King Arthur, and many accepted his work to be true, anyway he later wrote a poem, the “Life of Merlill,” in which he claims Arthur was laid on a golden bed in Avalon and was nursed back to health by Morgan. In fact, Geoffrey states Arthur was not dead and would return to Avalon one day.

TOR RAINBOW_n



”The Britons still believe that he [Arthur] is alive, living in Avalon with the fairest of spirits and they still continue to expect Arthur to come back.” According to Malory, there is written upon Arthur’s tomb: Hic iacet Arthurus, Rex Quondam Rexque Futurus, or ‘Here lies Arthur, the Once and Future King….’

Avalon also appears in other legends. In Marie de France’s “Lanval,”the hero Lanval offends Queen Guinevere and is taken to the dungeons. Lanval’s mistress, a fairy, rescues him and takes him to the Isle of Avalon. Robert de Boron, a knight from Burgundy, told the tale of Joseph of Arimathea around 1200 A.D. Supposedly, the Holy Grail, the cup used by Jesus in the Last Supper, was taken by Joseph , who used it to catch drops of Jesus’ blood as Jesus hung on the cross…

32117_397923238130_2862734_n

Joseph then carried the Grail to Avalon, where he died. Could an actual Isle of Avalon exist? It is possible. Is is in fact Glastonbury of old? In England, there is a man-made hill called The Tor, atop which is a monastery known as Glastonbury. It is believed that at one time, possibly around the time Arthur was said to exist, the hill could have been surrounded by marsh and water.

sacred well waters

This would have effectively made The Tor an island. In 1191, the Glastonbury monks linked Glastonbury to Arthur and excavated the site. Seven feet down was a stone slab, underneath which was found a lead cross! The cross read: “HIC IACET SEPULTUS INCLITUS REX ARTURIUS IN INSULA AVALONIA,” which correctly translated would say: “Here lies buried the renowned King Arthur in the Isle of Avalon.”

abbey sign:arthu:

Avalon will probably always remain a mystery. The theories have never had enough evidence. Avalon was a combination of places, filled with mystery, magic, truth and legends. Arthur, to me, was buried at Avalon. And was Avalon also the land of fairies? Avalon was a holy place, and if Arthur was brought there to die, time may too have added to the legends and mystery…

GOG AND MAGOG

Many would like to know that Avalon really existed, for the existence of Avalon could very well mean the existence of King Arthur, Avalon and for once a real ‘fairy tale’ might be proven true. Or, the truth may never be known. Avalon-Glastonbury.

“Some souls get drawn here without knowing why…

Others have to overcome big hurdles to get here.
Some come for fun, others for spiritual growth.

Many arrive and soon realise that they have stumbled into something quite unexpected…

Is it the energy or the people they seek to connect with?”

Heaven In Your Heart…

10011446_770635949627724_274795914_n

The smell of Spring is in the air! Bulbs are pushing through the soil and the tree buds are already anticipating the warmth of the sun, yet to come!

April is a perfect time to remember to breathe into our hearts and accept where we are.
Breathing deeply into the heart always brings us back to a place of center.

Many of you have grown impatient as you constantly wait for ‘change’. Yet its you who are hugging the ‘old‘ tightly to your chest. Your fears grow, yet you also sense that you are reaching higher and higher, connecting with a new ease, to the stars and beyond.

Some feel out of balance and alone…Hearts seek balance and a settled home. You long for truth, peace and expanded Light…

As we start living more fully in this ‘New World’, we get a sense of the vast space we have been given to choose, yet you seem less aware of our own deep process.

I ask you today to begin considering life as “we” instead of “me.” It is time for us to come together as One, powerful, infinite and shining examples of living Truth in every moment that we live and breath!

10013835_770876236270362_1184409739_n

As we move further into April and all the planetary and earthy events predicted…I wish you love, light and offer prayers of joy, peace and reverence. Know that during this time of uncertainty and change, we are all closer than we realise.

My wishes for you are Heaven in your heart, Light in your Soul, and Miracles in your life…May Peace and Light return to Earth!

 

“Life is not about having and getting, but being and becoming…”
