New Possibilities…

“I know you want to question everything, but sometimes it pays to just have a little faith.” 
Lauren Kate, Torment

TODAY:

Undercurrents, changeable, icy, unhurried, broody. Today began silently, calmly with an early morning coldness, that quickly seeped into my bones…Coffee came first.

“My heart was trembling with an emotion that embraced everything in the World”

Teilhard de Chardin

All too soon my day was disrupted by the sound of heavy machinery and electric saws. A nearby neighbour had chosen to cut down four ancient Fir trees. I had always acknowledged these four old trees as powerful protectors, that acted as buffers against strong winds. To me they were sacred, holding ancient space as they stood tall and strong on consecrated ground.

As they were being cut down, my heart was aching…my body quivering…I lit a candle and offered a prayer to our Earth Mother and the Trees. This thoughtless act of removing these great old trees, which was also the home and shelter for a variety of birds, as well as resting flocks of Starlings during cold winter days and nights.

WORD: Unsettled

COLOUR: Grey

I FEEL: Sad, Unsettled. Adjusting.

Going through layer upon layer of deep healing and the strengthening…light shining through…self discovery.

INSIGHTS:

“Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won.

It exists. it is real. it is possible. it’s yours.”
Ayn Rand

Thunder comes and you are jolted into a clear consciousness and are fully awake, so awake and clear that you may find it difficult to trust. You have been disturbed and shaken to the core by certain events and recent difficult decisions that you may have made. You cannot avoid this shake-up because you have called for it. Bobbie K

THE COLLECTIVE:

‘The words you think are more powerful that the words you speak.’ Bobbie K

I know that right now few of us recognise the outside world. And over the next several months, it may not look or sound anything like you imagined it to be. Its not what you dreamed. Its not what you imagined.
Let me tell you that your dream will come – but for now accept that our world is dismantling the old system and all that it carried.

Any signs of fear, discord, even violence, need to be seen as part of a huge cleansing. I see life on Earth with its complex agenda, often so intricate, that the human mind fails to grasp what is happening.
We need to trust and know that on some deep soul level we understand, we are safe…

Listen to Your Life…

“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…’

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.

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.’*

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.

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…”
