Movement…

“New Year – a new chapter, new verse, or just the same old story?

Ultimately we write it. The choice is ours.”
Alex Morritt

TODAY:

As I write this Blog, I pause to gaze out of the frosty window – I can almost feel the icy air on my cheeks, a thin layer of pure white ice covers everything outside…Its a very cold day, a day to snuggle up and keep warm…

To me it brings a stillness, a silent calm to all that has taken place over the past weeks and months. Perhaps a time to sit quietly and reflect, or simply to rest a while…before the new year begins in earnest…

ONE WORD: Surrender

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Fiery Orange

HOW I FEEL:
I realised I am not here to change myself, fix myself, improve myself or transform myself.
I am simply here to meet myself, accept myself, love myself and be myself.
Nithya Shanti

Some years just float by with little change, but last year changed me on very deep levels…I underwent several challenging periods of ‘initiation.’
Most were unexpected, some anticipated. At times I was enticed to work with past issues, which propelled me out of my comfort zone…
I understand that change is necessary and all change is a form of initiation.

But, we as mere mortals, need to be true to ourselves whilst we surrender to whatever life brings – holding ourselves accountable for our own lives! I know that I (we?) need to settle down, and accept all that is coming and bless this time I have here on Earth.

Are we not key players in a game that we chose to explore and live through? Well, I intend to take one gentle step at a time into this year, no rush, and to experience each unique and monumental event!

’I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth.’

INSIGHTS:

‘Suffering arises when we cling to that which is changing’.

Perhaps now, more than ever before, it makes perfect sense for us to marry the ideas of modern science, the wisdom of ancient spirituality and the regular practice of prayer and meditation to balance our own lives, as we embrace the power this has to change our world!

In the past few months, it has become obvious that we are walking through that ‘mysterious door’, and beginning to cross a bridge into the unknown world, of which we have yet to create.
We have had to re-think about what we knew to be ‘true’, and we have to learn new ways to live in this rapidly shifting world.

620d86cf2a807a1ddf8332438814e8f4

‘Movement is the process of the Universe.
So move.
Do something.
Anything.
But do not stand still.
Do not remain ‘on the horns of a dilemma.’
Do not fence sit.

Put your foot down on one side or the other, swing the opposite leg over and start walking.
You’ll know before you take ten steps if you’re going in the right direction.’


d5ee6a608035141727034340502d29eb
THE COLLECTIVE:

‘We have the opportunity to completely reinvent our lives, or to stay stuck in our stagnant old habits and patterns. We can take clear, decisive action to fulfil our Dreams, or we can resign ourselves to the thought that our Dreams are too impractical or too far away to achieve. Anything is possible. Even the impossible is possible!’

Solara

As we refocus and begin 2017, breath a clear breath, and look into your hearts to see how we are feeling.
Understand more clearly – who you are – and make sure that you continue to focus on all that is Light …
Move steadily forward, even if at times, it feels as if you are not moving at all.

glastonbury sunrise:_n

2017 = 10 = 1 = The number ‘1’ represents the beginning of a new cycle, new beginnings, embarking on a new journey of learning and growth.
In a universal ‘1’ vibrational month, the beginning of a new universal cycle of 9, it is a time to plant the seeds for the forthcoming cycle.

The foundations you set now in the present, set the foundations for the next cycle.
What are you passionate about?
What are your goals and inner-visions ?

Love Can Heal the World…

13781752_820749014692243_4816278367086706687_n

‘When we love and care for ourselves with all of our flaws and fractures, doing the same for others becomes a natural way of living. Love can, and will truly heal the world!’

TODAY:

Morning, from a wet and soggy Glastonbury. In fact many places have had storms and heavy downpours. So much is happening energetically at this time too. The incredibly powerful Lions Gate energies, which I began to feel around the 28th, are building as we move towards the 8:8.

ONE WORD: Perseverence

1496989_859865544126427_7051935634240849347_n

COLOUR OF THE DAY:

Pastel BLUE – the sky on a perfect cloudless day…

HOW I FEEL:
Today again. I am hardly myself. It happens over and over.
It is heaven-sent. It flows through me. like the blue wave.

Mary Oliver

Well, my friends, its a wonderfully quiet morning here in Glastonbury. After quite a tumultuous week, last week…It is warm and humid, yet, dark with heavy rainclouds above. I am enjoying a slow peaceful morning…

Then yesterday afternoon, the rain came down! And it rained and rained and rained…often very heavily. It continued for about 5-6 hours. My courtyard flooded! The drains could not cope with the volume of water, and there was about 3-4 inches of water above the main drain grid. I did my best to deal with this in the pounding rain…

In the end I managed to release the flooded waters…I was drenched and shattered. Today, I am sore all over…my shoulders, back, arms. This too shall pass…

PHYSICALLY:
The remedy for fear is love, not simply releasing it.
Fear is a slow, solidified energy that needs to be unwound with love…

Michael Harrington

Many of us have needed more sleep, as the body goes through a huge shift, once more. Some are finding themselves with stomach upset, nausea, headaches and all over body aches.

I have been experienced many of those symptoms in the past 2 weeks. I have listened to my body, rested and taken life slow and steady. And often after being up for a few hours, I have felt tired again. That has meant an afternoon nap, when ever possible.

13600341_813330595434085_8039644026481300231_n

INSIGHTS:

“To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter…to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird’s nest or a wildflower in spring…these are some of the rewards of the simple life.”
John Burroughs

We are in the midst of such a powerful time of change. This is history in the making!
At times everything seems upside down, and life feels as if it is unravelling out there. Every where we look, everything we read or watch. And I say; Let us shine with compassion and understanding, even when it seems impossible to endure…

After having for so long done no more than allow itself to live, Mankind will one day understand that the time has come to undertake its own development and to mark its own road…

THE COLLECTIVE:

‘Life is not static. It is forever dynamic, forever creating – not something done and finished, but something alive, awake and aware. There is something within you that sings the song of eternity. Listen to it.’

The Lions-Gate! Wow! Of course we are still in it and going through it, until at least 8:8…This time of the Lions-Gate, and the opening of a powerful Stargate – is a challenging time physically and even emotionally for most of us.

It seems to cut through whatever we have not faced, or need to understand…As it cuts through things, it also exposes or releases. If we are ready to do so…
May we all absorb and enjoy what’s coming and allow everything to unfold in our lives as it is meant.

Listen to Your Life…

831c8ab3de1969a7d7a8f503ed7a0528

“Listen to your life. 
See it for the fathomless mystery it is. 
In the boredom and pain of it, no less than in the excitement and gladness:

touch, taste, smell your way to the Holy and hidden Heart of it, 

because in the last analysis all moments are key moments, 

and life itself is Grace.” 

Frederick Buechner

TODAY: Gently raining. Dense low cloud reaching down to us…Stillness with an undercurrent of a more restless and simmering energy. What lies beneath the surface, I wonder…

COLOUR: Pastel Yellow/Gold

WORD: Sweetness…Il Dolce Far Niente‘The sweetness of doing nothing…’

Young woman sitting on a bed meditating

FEELING:

“Throw off your tiredness.

Let me show you one tiny spot of the beauty that can’t be spoken.”
Rumi

I get these ‘giddy swirls’, is the best way to describe it…and feel as if I am falling off this world…and into another.
My days seem to drift gently by, yet on another layer of my life, time has folded and is screeching ahead at a speed that is astounding! For this reason days meld and blend and may change from intense, insightful, tired, happy, sad, wide awake or mentally astute.

Bored, tired man sleeping at the wheel of his car

INSIGHTS:

“Perhaps the most important thing we bring to another person is the silence in us,

not the sort of silence that is filled with unspoken criticism or hard withdrawal.

The sort of silence that is a place of refuge, of rest, of acceptance of someone as they are.

We are all hungry for this other silence. It is hard to find.

In its presence we can remember something beyond the moment,

a strength on which to build a life.

Silence is a place of great power and healing.”

Rachel Naomi Remen

Life is hurling ahead at a speed that none will understand or believe – until much time has passed and we are reborn and able to ‘see’ with new eyes. I feel the changes hourly and understand fears and uncertainties.
As I move through different layers of my life, in and out I see it, I know. I get a picture of the dreams that awaits us, and you my dearest precious friend are next to me in all those dreams.

COLLECTIVE:

‘Oh soul, you worry to much.

You have seen your own strength, you have seen your own beauty.

You have seen your golden wings.

Of anything less, why do you worry?

You are in truth, the soul, of the soul, of the soul.’
Rumi

In the past weeks and months I have had request for advise, and conversations with clients and friends about how tired they feel, how pressured, how ill, forgetful, torn, out of balance and rushed, rushed, rushed…especially if you have a career and young family to manage.

‘How to do this? Nourish the body, get sufficient sleep, exercise, meditate, study, spend time in nature, contemplate and reflect more, and pay careful attention to the thoughts and lives of great men and women throughout history. Expose ourselves to great art. Be creative. Help others. Aspire to worthy things, like understanding and appreciating the Creator better, and being wiser, and more loving, and healthier.’*

f085d07c12ae68fee037e3c48ca31c30

My response is this: Simplify your thoughts and so your life. Stretch time…Pencil in ‘Me’ time. Become aware your need for balance in your life…Then slowly allow for different way, leading to a happier, more relaxed and fulfilled you…layer by gently layer…

Make some choices that are a stretch for you…reach for what does not seem possible in your regular daily regime. See it as simplifying it all. Begin to be more ‘you…’ Do it, don’t think about it too much, or pretend that you are about to do it! Trust yourself! Live the dream that is in your heart now…It can be revised later. Be who you are, drop the masks, the rigid outer casing…Then very gently, expose more of who you know in your heart, you already are!

Change your hair, wear new colours, try new things, be bold, be courageous, love who you are, relax more, perhaps dance and sing, or make time sit alone in silence…let old emotions and hurts go….weep, then dine lavishly, rest often, sleep more deeply and laugh more freely. And drink…water, water…water…cleanse and let go.

1595321856afb9cf9658ccf009771c0a

Begin to allow the word ‘rejoice’ to enter your world…make sure that you are being True to YOU! Escape negative influences, leave them behind with love and thanks, release yourself from all their fears and limitations. Be free…surrender.

AFFIRMATION: “I am happy, healthy, wealthy and wise…”

Seeking…

“As I opened the well of receptivity in my own heart, I tasted a deep truth in giving and receiving.

A gift that is given and received freely, in its purest sense,

is simply joy.

A joy for the one who gives and a joy for the one who receives.

There is no agenda.

No conditions.

No strings attached to the gift.”

THE COLLECTIVE:

Fear not the strangeness you feel.

The future must enter you long before it happens.

Just wait for the birth,

for the hour of new clarity.

Rainer Maria Rilke

Pushing and pulling. Awakening to a more realistic view of life on Earth. Hearts filled with love yet often, misunderstanding and misunderstood. Afraid of change, seeking comfort.

BLOG:NEW PARADIGMS:BLOG 18:11_n

INSIGHTS: You each have ‘work’ to do on different levels, therefore never try
to compare yourself with anyone else, or to compete with anyone else,
but give of your own unique gifts in your own unique way.
You are not all of the same mould, you are different.

Realise this, give thanks for it, and then go and use the gifts, which are specifically yours for the benefit of the whole. Judge not what you have to give, JUST GIVE it. Too much time is wasted weighing up the pros and cons. Let your actions be spontaneous, prompted by the freedom of the spirit and not carefully calculated and worked out. Let go, let Soul work through you. A deeper level of communication and change are needed to inspire greater vision.

BLOG:12:1:14_n

“We come together in the spirit of unity to heal wounds that separate us,

to reconcile conflicts that divide us,

to inspire ideas and actions that express our Oneness,

and to join in heart and mind to welcome the birth of our New World.”

Today Is a New Day…

The stars got poured into the sky
Out of a Magicians hat last night,
And all of them have fallen into my hair.
Some have even tangled my eyelashes
Into luminous, playful knots…

TODAY: Dull, dense, static, waiting, chilly, damp…I feel the undercurrent of unsettled energies here.

IN ONE WORD: Acceptance

It was my Birthday yesterday and I would like to take a moment to Thank You for your beautiful messages, good wishes and more…Bless you All. InLa’Kech

INSIGHTS: “All that is transpiring now on this planet is the collapse of all that is false, and all that does not serve. There is a new sun, there is a new day, there is a new and fresh air to be breathed. There is  hope for the hopeless and strength for the weak. The power of love, born of Heaven, rains down on those who continue to believe in the  magnificent power of a pure heart and a loving landscape of a New Earth created by this love.” The Phoenix will rise again..

THE COLLECTIVE:

‘The truth you believe and cling to, makes you unavailable to hear anything new…’
Pema Chodron

Whenever we move through such intense times, it is important to remember to balance, balance, balance. Get grounded however that works for you. Be sure to get out into nature. Get present.

What I am seeing most is that people are too distracted to know how they feel. The distractions will not stop so it is up to us to find ways to maintain our inner balance. Some things are easy to do. Watch less news, back away from the computers, phones, and other technologies that are consuming you.

Get back to interpersonal relationships. Spend time with people you love. Call those you haven’t. Reconnect. Seriously. 

We are in a time when so much is happening so fast, life is speeding by us and we are becoming so desensitised that we don’t know how we feel.

Dr. Meg Blackburn Losey

IN ONE WORD: Appreciation abounds!

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Rainbow Light

HOW I FEEL: Today I feel a new calmness, a settled’ness from deep within. I feel light, dreamy, grateful and deeply Blessed.

INSIGHTS: ‘I beseech you to run towards the new…Do not look back at those who have chosen not to follow…for their time will come. Their destiny is different from yours. Do not feel pain in your heart, for some of us have chosen to go forward alone, or with but a few, that we feel connected to…’

THE COLLECTIVE: ‘As you step solidly into this ‘new phase’ of life, I ask you to leap over the threshold of the Gate before you.
Leaving behind much of the old, whether this be a negative thought form, hasty action, or a disillusioned mood… Now you will move towards new friends, different  places, people and positive right actions. You will begin to feel lighter, freer, happier in your heart and mind, and this will filter down through all the layers of your ‘beingness’, to your newly re-structured DNA.’
