SATORI – My Newsletter…


I have never mentioned the passion I have for the Colour Matrix Essences I create. I adore working with aromas and colour! It excites me.

And I have not mention my Newsletter, Satori.

It has been going for about 10 years, the name has changed twice, but the readership has been consistent.

When I decided to stop writing it at the end of last year, there was a huge and very unexpected outcry…

And so, with a new template and a slightly new format, I continued…

And so, today, for something completely different, I have decided to add (the link) to SATORI…


Genesis 9:13-16 –

I have set my rainbow in the clouds,

and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the Earth.

“There is no doubt that we are the Pioneers. No matter where you find yourself right now, or what your past has been…

All of that was just a distraction and a learning period.  Step forward and take a very serious look at yourself. Look deep, look behind your eyes and see yourself, really see yourself…Go deeper still, into the oceans of your past and into your cosmic heart…

Awake dear friends awake! Time speeds, yet life feels slow, delayed – patience and rest are needed, whilst we remain alert. Let life wash over you, as you flow along with it. Align to your vision and purpose of your highest self and move with concentration of will. Expand your capacity to love, be tender, compassion, tolerant and fearless.

To put it simply, we are stepping back into our True Selves. Body and soul melding, becoming One expression again…

You know, the intention of my writing all this, is and always has been – to support you, to make the path lighter, with many reminders and also new information, to make life flow with a deeper understanding and less fear.

Whatever you do, where ever you are on your path of life, I wish you a continued path of unfolding love.”

Blessings, Tara xox💓

Is this our NEW WORLD…?

I wrote about ‘THE NEW WORLD’, as I called it then, a long time ago. 

I came across it ‘by accident’ today and as I re-read it it seems to fit so well in the NOW.

I felt guided to share it with you all.

 “To many, their world feels as if it is at war. The reason for this is we are shifting so rapidly and everything that we never spoke of, issues we only thought about, emotions we blocked, or behaviour we disliked in ourselves, are now here in our face to see, to feel and deal with. What we do with this sudden upsurge of issues is up to us…we can accept it all, as part of who we are/were, we can get assistance to help with working through these feelings and issues, we can focus on the lesson these represent, or we can watch these patterns and behaviours and wallow in them and remain where we are.

Many of my ‘students’ are stepping back, dropping away from their own basic truth, their real purpose as part of their magnificent journey ahead. They are trapped in their fear and are choosing to believe they are ‘small’. This is another reason why I felt it was important to draw to me, those who truly resonate with this journey and understand my own work here on planet Earth…

Time continues to speed up and amazing things are happening! Some days life and what we experience is moving so quickly that we barely notice what is happening around us, but we must! Being present in every moment is paramount to the fullness of our journeys, our experiences within those journeys, and even in the lives of those around us.

The most frequently asked question to me is “What is my purpose?” The answer is already within you. You just need to learn to be still and listen. We are already the sum total of everything we are, were and are yet to be…

The time lines are thinning and crossing and in each moment there is unlimited possibility. The choice is yours. You must remember too, that you are the Masters of your own destiny.

First of all, we need to remind ourselves that we are Energy that is individual to each of us! This makes us unique in all of Creation. Each of us is special. And we must learn to be accept each experience in our lives and the choices we make in every given moment. Our Soul communicates back to us, bringing guidance when we are quiet enough to listen.

Those choices take us into new and different experiences, or keep us rooted in the same old place. It is always up to us. As we make those choices everything that occurs as a result, is communicated universally, and believe it or not, all of creation listens and adjusts accordingly. We need to begin to believe in ourselves enough to know that by our very thoughts and actions we can change the world.

Many of you fail to live up to your potential only because you never stretch or test yourself, or move beyond the boundaries of your present comfort zones. When you willingly and enthusiastically accept the challenges the Universe puts before you, you begin to understand what you are truly capable of. As you challenge yourself today, you can discover how truly capable and special you are.

Often I have talked about how we touch others as we move through life…how we never know how much we have affected someone’s life by a single moment in time when we gave just a little more of ourselves, a smile, a touch, a kind word. Those moments in time are part of our purpose. They cause a ripple effect that is timeless and serves our true purpose.

If we are truly here to make a difference we must exist unconditionally. I know, we have all heard this before, but do we really know what this means? Unconditionally or unconditional love is not an idea, it is not an emotion, and it is a way of being! And we must walk in that at all times, to the best of our ability, knowing that everything we do ripples both outward, communicating with all of Creation and then inward, as we ourselves evolve further into Light Being-ness.

Sometimes, it IS difficult to know how to apply unconditionality into our everyday living. How to touch others who are not ready yet, to receive or who seem to misunderstand us. Words, even actions don’t always seem to be enough…”

A Special Message:

‘The planet is changing… people everywhere are in overwhelm!

Feeling the pain, the confusion, the grief, and the anger of millions on this planet.

We ourselves are more vulnerable than ever before!

Lost, dis-connected, scattered, anxious, and alone, is what many are expressing to me in the calls and e-mails that I am receiving!

We are experiencing physical conditions that are uncomfortable and strange. These symptoms are simply there to alert us of the new love energy rapidly filling planet Earth!

We need to know and understand this and be at peace with all the happenings everywhere in the world!

Our bodies respond to these massive shifts, and its easy to tap into the mass consciousness of fear, anger, panic, confusion and even a war like state…

Did you actually volunteer for this level of living/work on planet earth?

You need to accept that you yourself, need constant support, emotionally, physically and mentally.

All of the work we have ever done in the past years… everything is making sense now, all we did before this time was a necessary part of our own journey…it is meant to be!

To compensate we need constant nourishment, healing, quiet time, and allowing self-love to flourish. Let yourself constantly re-balance, including going deep, to feel that spark of God within, that many find so hard to accept in themselves! If you look around, if you stop to feel, you will know that the Light is everywhere!’


 1. Old patterns need to be identified and healed

2. We must focus on our Soul connection

3. We are taking the high road. Understand that you are on a different path; you have made higher/new world choices.

4. Know thyself and to thyself be true. Don’t be afraid of being different.

5. Health and happiness are paramount! Watch your own health habits and allow happiness into your life every moment!

6. We must respect others and their choices.

“Put spirituality into practice! Do physical exercise, tai chi, yoga, reiki, practice good eating habits and use any processes, holistic treatments or tools to bring you back to balance and peace. We will see and feel many souls around the world unable to keep theirs…Let us keep together and support one another!

I would like to take this opportunity to Bless and thank those of you who continue to take up the challenges they are faced with and I see YOU shine! Go in peace my friends…”

Beyond the Veil…

“The heart of knowledge originates beyond this world of letters and language.

It comes to us from that world

where speech is without sound or sign.” 

Rumi – Fihi Ma Fihi


DAY: fresh, brighter, changeable, sodden,

WORD: belonging

COLOUR: golden-green

FEELING: upbeat and positive

BODY: happy

THE COLLECTIVE: All that life holds needs to be viewed more seriously and in a more sacred way. This is your opportunity to show the world how you have listened, how you have worked, how you have honored and that you are finally ready to accept the position you asked for before you arrived here. This is about ALL of you…

INSIGHTS: *Look beyond the obvious and seek higher guidance on a daily basis. New energy will enfold you over the next several days and you will be ready for a new beginning and more dedicated ‘work.’ The world is living in 2 realities simultaneously.

Many Souls are leaving this Earth. In places Earth is shifting its teutonic plates. Waters are rising. Gaia is reacting…She herself is changing her guise, her structure. More and more support and love is reaching Her and where She feels this, She reacts. 

Rest in the knowing that soon, very soon your voices will be heard, you will arise en-masse….as a ‘group consciousness’ of the Divine Mother…You will do this unknowingly, but with a sense that you are no longer alone. There is great love!

Worlds within this world are opening as the veil thins. Angels, Masters and off planet Beings are all around you holding, assisting to advance your DNA, your energy systems, the technology and science.

Important Gateways, for eons of time known only to Masters and the Solar Logos….will begin to open and a Master or Masters will step forward into your world! This will surprise or shock many. When this happens your new planet will have arrived! It will be set and aligned fully in the new world frequency. There may be mass reactions. But peace will slowly begin to settle in most places on Earth. But you knew that….

New Beginnings – 2014…

I am going to treat this day as a “crack between the worlds,”

the place where what is finished is not quite gone & what is beginning has not yet arrived. . . .

a place for wandering & letting the imagination, the non-rational,

non-logical mind be touched by images & stories & mysteries.



DAY: brighter, lighter, crisp, clear

WORD: love

COLOUR: silvery-blue

FEELING: alive, clear, awake, aware, expansive, ready

BODY: renewed, aligning, anchoring

THE COLLECTIVE: Let us travel over the Rainbow Bridge together with love in our hearts and deep humility within, for the importance of this year. How utterly blessed we are to be part of this! We the collective will begin to rebuild this Earth in the manner which is befitting of the Divine race of humans which we truly are!

Millions of people, all over the world are participating in this glorious movement towards a 5th, 7th dimensional planet! I feel joyous to be here, enriched by every experience, awakening and joining humanity in each step into this beautiful Golden Age.

INSIGHTS: We are about to enter a most sacred time, as we continue towards our Awakening. A time of higher ‘Illumination.’ Time for us to recognise the ‘Light-Being’ that we are. This year will be a time of true emergence! We will continue to open to our own radiance, whilst living more comfortably in with our truth. There is only love….

‘May we find room for the pause, the deep rest & dreaming, the silence. . .’

Peace on Earth…

“May there be peace and love

in the hearts of the men and women on Earth tonight,

and every night.”


DAY: soft, lazy, wet, dark clouds heavy with rain, ice and snow…

WORD: open-hearted

COLOUR: rose-pink

FEELING: relaxed, gentle, aware, expectant…

BODY: resting softly, a new calm

THE COLLECTIVE: “Every lesson is a widening and deepening of consciousness. It is a stretching of the mind beyond its limits and a stretching of the heart beyond its emotional boundaries. It is a bringing of unconscious material into consciousness, a healing of past wounds, and a discovery of new faith and trust.”

INSIGHTS:  The true gift of Christmas comes from within, it is the gift of Love. Lift up your eyes, look around, see what man has done to man. Begin at this special time of year to change the way you are. Embrace life, allow people into your life to share in your gladness and your sorrow. The greatest miracle of all was not the birth of one man, but it will be the birth of a true nation, great, yet humble enough to know that the greatest gift of all that can be given, is Love.

The way of your world at this time of year is of materialistic gifts, to show you are thinking of others. This is your earthly way & we understand this. But the greatest gift of all is free, but much harder to give, the gift of Self. Embrace each other, a hug, a smile, a word of kindness. In this way many faces can be lit up just by a meeting of eyes, the mirrors of our soul. Perhaps more so at this time of year bring your own Peace on Earth, goodwill to ALL.

Be a Beacon of Light to all around who have need of your love. Let them know you care, let them see the way forward. The way to give, to love, to understand the needs of all around you is to give of yourself, in the way you would want them to give to others as you walk this path of life…*


 * I have had these written words saved for 3+ years, today they jumped out at me…sadly I do not know the author.


Enhanced Energy…

Imagine all the overlays and the upheaval caused by these shifts!

Spiritual, planetary, personal, collective, and on our sweet Earth…

It is too huge to comprehend… 

If you stop fighting and flow…

then this enhanced energy will definitely work with you…


I feel a great heart-opening and my heart feels squeezed with love, humility and reverence. How joyous my heart feels, how honoured I have been and continue to be…

Tears fill my eyes and the appropriate words seem lost to me, with the depth I feel right now. To be here now, to be part of all this, to be aware, awake and part of this ‘greater than great’ life on our evolving Earth.

Blessed I AM, Blessed I AM, Blessed I AM…

For most of this year I have felt dormant, unable to truly ‘see’ or know, exactly where I was headed, or what I was truly here for…but now after a long and often bewildering and physically tiring journey, I know that finally I am getting there… ‘there’, where I am meant to be. I feel utterly and completely grateful for all that has been before this moment…

I wish you ALL the same delight, love, humility and grace I feel right now… I am honoured that many of you have trusted me to hold your hand and show you a way forward on your own journey. For this I thank you from my heart… To each and every one of my own ‘teachers’, the gratitude I feel is ineffable.

Stand a little taller today, breath a little deeper today, reach higher now and walk towards your dreams…I await you there.

“Your body is made of the earth.

Your breath is made of the wind. Your mind is made of light.

Your heart is made of love.

Your soul is made of the stars.

Your spirit is made of eternity. ” 

– Dr Jeff Mullan

The Blessings of Life…

I want to be lit from within by the unending intoxication of the blessings of this life


DAY: unsheltered, changeable, cold, strong winds

WORD: reveal – unmask

COLOUR: rose pink

FEELING: undecided, yet understanding, insightful

BODY: re-settling, working at re-balancing once again…

THE COLLECTIVE: There is a lack of desire by most humans on Earth at this time, to see, to feel or to truly recognise the subtle changes happening in their own bodies at an accelerated speed…These changes are very obvious and yet still we hide from what we are becoming…or have become, already.

INSIGHTS:  No matter where we are with ourselves, these times that we are going through, call us to meet personal and collective challenges that are more difficult than anything we’ve ever been through before…But, be in peace my friends, accept who you are and where you find yourself today, that is important.  I feel joyous to be here on Earth, enriched by every experience, awakening and joining humanity in each step into a beautiful new world.


Take this time to “do no-thing.”

Don’t fight yourself on this, because this too shall pass.

It’s similar to rebooting a computer.

You need to shut down for a brief period of time, in order to load the sophisticated new software,

or in this case, the new Christ-seed energy.

Enter a New Time…

parting of the waters :man

DAY: frosty, crisp, bright, opening

WORD: settle

COLOUR: deep turquoise

FEELING: present, aware, focused, connected

BODY: recalibrating, floating, deeper awakening

THE COLLECTIVE: we are living life now on many levels, many layers. On a cellular level we are re-balancing or restructuring ourselves to bring ‘us’ back together…

‘This weekend you have the opportunity to be ultra aware of what still needs to change within you, and with out. Please remember that we are being fully supported in these changes… This is the time to be brave enough, and to be very honest with yourself. See clearly, speak clearly, act with the purpose, authentic to who you are now, not who you once were’ Anara WhiteBear

INSIGHTS: its important to spread the word, our beliefs and our energy, in a loving and peaceful way for the future to regain balance and harmony. Sit quietly, find your own answers. Know what resonates, feel in your heart and trust that it is your best way forward. Potential, purpose and life lessons. Enter a NEW TIME…

 And when the light touches ground there,

it will put down deep roots that will keep it there forever and beyond.

Radiance of Spirit…

For what is it to die, But to stand in the sun and melt into the wind?

And when the Earth has claimed our limbs, Then we shall truly dance.”

Khalil Gibran


DAY: clear, cold, frosty, awake

WORD: unstoppable

COLOUR: pure white

FEELING: deep gratitude

BODY: balancing, resting, restored

THE COLLECTIVE: “In these times of change we have lost sight of the shore and thrash about drowning in a 2-foot tidal pool. When the winds of change blow at your life you can ride them soaring to new heights in delight, or allow them to keep your tired and exhausted always fighting the force.”*

INSIGHTS: I accept my life, my journey and myself in this thing called ‘life’ and know that all will be well, as more of what is coming, unfolds before me and in me…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 as of today, I fully honour my sacred purpose.

I AM blessed. InLa’Kech ♥

The Gates of Time…

“…you are entering the most compressed and expanded and accelerated time continuum that the Earth has ever experienced. “


 DAY:  clear, bright, renewed

WORD: acceptance

COLOUR: aquamarine

FEELING:  excited, unsettled, yet settled, expectant

BODY: preparing, rested, energised…Our bodies are struggling to keep up and there is inner ‘spiritual conflict’ and emotional turmoil, interspersed with a need to ‘escape it all’ with bouts of clouded mechanical action.

COLLECTIVE: the desire for peace and truth (aquamarine*), yet wanting to remain in the comfort of the old and familiar patterns, behaviours and routine. The pushing and pulling to make things stay as they were, or used to be, or to be in control…is a daily challenge for many.

INSIGHTS: all this while we are upgrading and uploading our own frequency, to the higher 5th dimensional way of being. This will not take place over night as some wish us to believe, but will be ongoing for several year. Slowly we will begin to accept and understand that the ‘old’ is no longer working, because it no longer exists in our reality…


 “Sometimes saviours look different than you thought they would.”  

Lidia Yuknavitch

*There is an Essence in the Colour Matrix range; Spiritual Conflict, which is there to support us during such times.
