The Emerald Heart…

10338895_873027046044636_2122453624330291196_n

Oh yesterday, that one, we all cry out.

Oh, that one!

How rich and possible it all was!

Hope – ripe, ready, lavish and filled with excitement – how hopeful we were on that summers day, under the clean, white racing clouds.

Oh, yesterday!

Mary Oliver

TODAY: Silently the dark shadows of night are slowly disappearing…
Ah, such quiet, such peace, yet the world ‘out there’ is in various states of chaos.

Morning for me is my best time – I feel strong and alert, filled with my dreams and thoughts…a time of noticing and cherishing. I know I am blessed…

IN ONE WORD: Appreciation

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Emerald Green –

“The Emerald Heart is held in the sacred space of the altar of grace…”

HOW I FEEL:

In order to be the person I want to be,

I must strive hourly against the drag of the others…

Mary Oliver

Its ok, its actually as perfect as it can be…not always easy, not always kind, but there is a sense in me now that I know that this journey is meant to take me somewhere that I want to go…today, tomorrow and for as long as I AM here…I am soul. I am vast. And I fully honour my sacred purpose.

PHYSICALLY:

“In a new space in every possible way…the spiritual  avalanche its over…I AM…” Ashtara

 I ended up in the Hospital after a (mild) heart attack, 11 days ago. I am taking life one hour at a time, since coming out of hospital. That in itself was a challenging experience, having never been admitted to a hospital in all of my life thus far (lucky I know!). 

I had not been feeling in good health in the past 2-3 weeks, with regular chest pains and ‘heartache.’ I was aware that the ‘happenings’ around the world were impacting on my sensitive heart too, and of course, we have been going through enormous planetary and global changes, on every level.

INSIGHTS:

“I would say there exists a thousand unbreakable links between us and everything else, and that our dignity and our chances are one…”

Mary Oliver

For me these recent shifts have been so powerful that there is no going back, not for anyone. Take your time, absorb, settle your body and mind. Let these changes be what they are, knowing that changes are happening for us all, in each and every breathing moment…

THE COLLECTIVE:

“…we are at risk together, or we are on our way to a sustainable world together.

We are each other’s destiny…”

Mary Oliver

The winds of change are blowing. Time to think deeply, appreciate and honour your life more. Look deeply into your heart and ask for higher guidance and then, with gentleness, begin to live in a new and more conscious way…

The Call Of Life…

realm

“Outside the open window
The morning air is all awash with angels.”
Richard Wilbur

All of life beckons you into sacred relationship – the trees, the grasses, the animals, the souls of all whom you meet. All of life reaches to you for the response of your heart, for the response of your inner knowing, for the response of your deepest truth.

10685451_10152750809969530_2947055740262034324_n
Sacred life, the life of the Earth and of all that exists within the vast universe, calls to you to recognize it, to honor it, to celebrate it, to join it. Only the history of three-dimensional reality has created narrowed vision. It has created a view of the world as solid. It has created the perception of aloneness.

310516_10150283337488131_7061358_nNone of this is true, beloved. None of it corresponds to your heart’s deepest knowing. Your heart knows that it is part of something vast and mysterious, something that fosters life and is life. Your heart knows that the world is much more than it appears to the physical senses. It feels the miracle of birth everywhere – of children, of flowers, of animals, of stars. It recognizes the creative power behind all of these births and knows that life is ongoing – it comes from somewhere and goes somewhere. It is flow.

13140_10152951861428969_332846315122583082_nThe rational mind has been empowered to define reality according to the physical senses and organs within the brain. However, the rational mind is not the source of deepest knowing. Your inner being, to which you are always connected, is the source of deepest knowing. You are always there. It is always with you, however covered over it may be.

61c16d66fe3ef18785b193da9b16dca0
Celebration of life cannot come from the rational mind. Celebration of life can only come from the Mystery. It can only come from the perception of the power of life that moves in miraculous ways to create newness where none existed before. Celebration bears witness to the miraculous. It bears witness to the miraculous life of the Earth and of the heavens. It bears witness to the joy that arises from your very own heart when your own child is born. Celebration of life comes from the Mystery and remains in the Mystery, attuned to the Source of life that is the Source of the Mystery, whether recognized or not.
16675_10151917726795598_102573229_n
All of life beckons to you to respond to it, to engage with it, to be in relationship with it. All of life reaches to you, calls to you, asks you to be present. Fear closes down the ability to hear this call. Self-protection inhibits the reaching out to others. And yet the ‘others’ are continually reaching out to you. They are angels, and guides, and helpers on all levels of spiritual reality. They are devas, and spirits of the streams, and spirits of the trees, and of the Earth. God reaches to you as well, directly, intimately, within the stirrings of your very own heart.

08c4ba0d28d20d7dd8c703b2762e2475

Blessing may be felt by those who walk in the stream of holy life, who recognize the life that is everywhere. Blessing may be felt by those who open their hearts and ask to feel the oneness of all – who ask for an end to separation and to be part of the All.

5d94b6db5b7a4b168e28e5bfa81b4fe6

It is a matter of reaching out your hand, beloved one. Touch the trees with your hand. Touch the leaves with your fingers. Touch the air with your breath. Touch the sky with your awe and wonder.

You are already there. You are already home. You are already part of All-That-Is.

The Game of Life…

“Mother Earth and the Divine Mind are in no hurry…
I believe in Divine Timing

I understand that ‘All That Is’

Knows exactly what’s next…”
Ashtara

FLOWER CHORUS

O such a commotion under the ground,


When March called: “Ho! There! ho!


“Such spreading of rootlets far and wide


Such whisperings to and fro!”


Are you ready?” the Snowdrop asked,”


‘Tis time to start, you know.”


“Almost, my dear!” the Scilla replied,


“I’ll follow as soon as you go.


“Then “Ha! ha! ha!” the chorus came


Of laughter sweet and low,


From millions of flowers under the ground,


Yes, millions beginning to grow.


“I’ll promise my blossoms, the crocus said,


“When I hear the black bird sing.
“

And straight thereafter the Narcissus cried,


My silver and gold I’ll bring.”


“And ere they are dulled,” another spoke,


“The Hyacinth bells shall ring.

”
But the violet only murmured,

“I’m here,”


And sweet grew the air of Spring.


O the pretty brave things, thro’ the coldest days


Imprisoned in walls of brown,


They never lost heart tho’ the blast shrieked loud,


And the sleet and the hail came down;


But patiently each wrought her wonderful dress


Or fashioned her beautiful crown,


And now they are coming to lighten the world


Still shadowed by winter’s frown.


And well may they cheerly laugh “Ha! ah!”


In laughter sweet and low,


The millions of flowers under the ground,


Yes, millions beginning to grow.

TODAY: I woke to a surprisingly cold and dark day…I shivered as I felt the cold air…

IN ONE WORD: Live!

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Rainbows!

HOW I FEEL: Yes, I was cold. I did my ‘wake-up’ exercises, looked out the window and up at the sky…My little pots of Daffodils were in full bloom, the birds were skipping from feeder to feeder, the air though moist, was fresh and new! I realised with certainty that hibernation was coming to an end! The world was beginning to wake up all around me and I felt it! I was instantly clear, awake, alive with a sense of joy and wonder…I needed strong hot strong coffee! I dressed hurriedly and dashed down the stairs. This was going be a good day!

INSIGHTS:

“Things change.

And friends leave.

Life doesn’t stop for anybody.”

Stephen Chbosky

Yes, there are many good, decent and deeply spiritual people out there, praying for the ‘sudden death’ of the ‘old…’ I know this. But Mother Earth and the Divine Mind are in no hurry…I believe in Divine Timing and trust ‘All That Is’ knows exactly what’s next.

Us mere mortals, need to surrender to whatever unfolds, allowing life to flow, to float, yet being honest and accountable for our lives; the way we honour life here on this sweet Earth, as well as honouring all of humanity, ourselves and those close to us.

BLOG:24:7:14:White-Hot-Summer

THE COLLECTIVE: Lets all decide to settle down. To surrender to all that life offers us right now, all that is changing, all that is yet to be…Bless this time we have here on Earth! We are key players in a game that we chose to explore and live through. So, what’s the rush…enjoy this time, its a monumental event.

AFFIRMATION: “I embrace life and all its experiences!”

It exists…it is real… it is possible…it’s yours.”

And Rivers Have Hearts…

dog-devotion

Even stars smile in the solitary night, 


And trees link branches for the journey.


While moonlight prays for those that cannot speak,


Both fields and woods filled with spirits.


Even stones have tongues,


And rivers have hearts…


I know, i’ve walked among them.


Listening with a pilgrim’s ears,


And smiling, 

Awed by living!

Hi, Friends. Please take your time with this post, because it is a thinker. Really look closely at the photos I chose to match the words with to understand the deeper meaning of the words. If you take the time to do so, I believe you will come away from this post, with such an incredible deep feeling of awe.

Believe in Magic…

ROSE - CREAM

“Sometimes beautiful things come into our lives out of nowhere.

We can’t always understand them, but we have to trust in them.

I know you want to question everything,

but sometimes it pays to just have a little faith.” 


Lauren Kate, Torment

TODAY: Bright blue sky, glorious sunshine and a peaceful green landscape…

IN ONE WORD: Exuberant and therefore I feel expansive….

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Red-gold

HOW I FEEL:

“Part of doing something is listening.

We are listening.

To the sun.

To the stars.

To the wind.” 


Madeleine L’Engle

Outside my window in my neighbours garden is a huge rose bush, which came into flower this week. This morning about 30 of the blooms have opened. The site is quite magnificent! A profusion of huge blooms in a golden hue, with glints of red in the sun.
I feel an overflowing of Divine Love for all of nature…and I feel dearly loved…

I was reading until 3am and in my solitude the stillness of the early hours, felt filled with a deep reverence and peace…I felt a quiet joy, perhaps another level of surrender? And So It Is.

PHYSICALLY: A sense of wellbeing…

INSIGHTS: Let us all move forward with a new ease, an ease that allows surrender towards joy and happiness…
Hold that vision and move into trust and love… for what can be lost, there is much for us all to gain?

THE COLLECTIVE: This is the time to be proud of who we are, to honour this journey and the many other life journeys that we each have taken… Each Divine Experience of our life has brought us to the place where you find yourself .

AFFIRMATION: “I see the Divine in All things…”

“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.”

Silver Rain…

silver_rain_by_sfreidin-d3hzt1d.png

In time of silver rain

The earth puts forth new life again,

Green grasses grow

And flowers lift their heads,

And over all the plain

The wonder spreads

 

Of Life,

Of Life,

Of life!

Spring_rain_Wallpaper_ws0c0 

In time of silver rain

The butterflies lift silken wings

To catch a rainbow cry,

And trees put forth new leaves to sing

In joy beneath the sky

As down the roadway

Passing boys and girls

Go singing, too,

 

In time of silver rain

When spring

And life

Are new. 

Rain-Forest-Wallpaper-666x500

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.”
