Let Me Rest….

11204402_10200884158702735_6568923613013368857_n

“Let me be still amid the beauty of earth.

Let me be a silent admirer of all that is sacred.

Let me be reverent in the presence of another.

Let me restore my inner eye.

Let me put to rest the wildness of endless activity.

Let me end my seeking the glitter of streets that go nowhere. “

TODAY: A gentle haze has hung over the Town since early morning….Its quiet. There is hardly a sound out there. Its a real slumber Sunday, a mellow mood of surrender to a much needed weekend rest.

IN ONE WORD: Softly

MY COLOUR SELECTION: Deep Golden hues (Essence 40 – Golden Dolphin)

HOW I FEEL: With the cooler weather, I seem to be getting a reoccurring feeling coming up through the Earth (Gaia) during certain weather. It affects my body strongly. Noise and sound too, seem intensified, light feels too bright and to be in a crowd can feel overwhelming…much sleep is needed.

11986325_10200930575783133_4053189045580438875_n

I watch the birds eating from the feeder happily as the colder days arrive…I feel winter days approaching with dark mornings and early evenings…I see all of nature preparing for sleep…I look out at this with love, awe and appreciation and pray that we will all begin to notice more intensely, the beauty and wonder of our precious planet…

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

INSIGHTS:

“Where you are headed is more important than how fast you are going.
Rather than always focusing on what’s urgent, learn to focus on what is really important.”

I feel that gratitude is most appropriate for these coming months and taking it through with us, into next year. We have in many ways all been lucky, perhaps, without taking the time to realise this. I know that many of us have been hurled around this year, but we have come out of it quite well. We are alive, safe, fed, housed, wiser, more humble and slowly accepting the changes in our world.

‘We grow ever impatient and yet we hug the old.

Our fears grow yet we do manage to connect with the stars and beyond.’

THE COLLECTIVE:

“We depend on chocolate and credit cards for happiness.”
Palden

We have been inching towards the doorway to the next world for so long that some of us would prefer to give up. Yet, in the past few months, it has become obvious to me, that we are walking through that ‘mysterious door’, and beginning to cross a bridge into an unknown world. We are having to re-think what we thought to be ‘true’, and now on a daily basis, we have to learn new ways to accept our experience in this rapidly changing world. Every level of reality needs to be considered, each belief system respected, all humans, animals and all living things on Earth, drawn into this mighty endeavour…

Quietude


There are times in life 
when it’s wise to live quietly.


Being in silence and stillness creates 
calmness and clarity.

A few suggestions:
WALK IN A GREEN FIELD AND BREATH: 
Breath nature deep into your belly! Lie down, stare up at the sky…

FLOWERS FOR NO REASON: 
Don’t wait for a special occasion! Make this a weekly happening! Fill your home with the beauty of fresh flowers…just because.

DRINK GOOD RED WINE: 
Only the best for you! Begin to enjoy good quality…in everything. Learn about what you are drinking & appreciate it.

BUY QUALITY CHOCOLATE
: Need some sweetness? Hide them for those special ‘spoil myself’ moods…

The Quickening…

11062330_10152825127346359_8033749419034263219_n

No one knows what makes the soul
 wake up so happy!


Maybe a dawn breeze has blown the veil


from the face of God.


Rumi

TODAY:

The predawn air is moist, the morning silent…the town sleeps…well, perhaps not all of us.
It has been a hot night, with me tossing and turning. Many thoughts floating through my mind. A new Essence making itself known – I sense its presence. Potentiality.

HOW I FEEL:

“And in the end we are just that: delightfully and magically human.”

Bobbie Klein

It has been a bit of a roller coaster ride for me these past 3 weeks. Many ups and downs, but in a gentle undulating way. Motivation came in waves…often a complete lack of it!

The world, the weather, the planets, the moon and the sun – all these giving off the energy of change. The people around me too, have been ever changeable. The world has felt uncertain.

This year has been challenging in very different ways from what we have known and understood before. What a journey this is, with intense learning in every possible moment!

PHYSICALLY:

There have been days of joyful vibrance and others when I have felt lethargic and slow…Days of intense energies all around me, and in me, downloads, then depletion.

I have created time to sit in silence and allow ’empty’ times to be restful, calm, nourishing and spiritual, allowing me to hold my heart steady, and with deep compassion for those who are struggling or feel lost…

‘We tell you not to feel guilt over ‘rest time’ that your body is calling for. There is much change happening within and around you.Your personal requirements are altering daily. Allow this to be.

“Have patience with everything
unresolved in your heart
and try to love the questions themselves.
Don’t search for answers now,
because you would not be able to live them.
And the point is to live everything.”
Rainer Maria Rilke

A ‘quickening’ is taking place and we have begun to move forward very swiftly…I am sensing that the rest of this year is going to be fast, challenging and unsettling. Brace yourselves…We will be awakening to many new ideas, concepts and perhaps with a new visions for our own future…

The Dream of the World…

“Each truth you learn will be, for you, as new as if it had never been written…”

Ancient Egyptian proverb

TODAY:
Severe dark wet days have been with us in the SW of England, for what feels like forever…Its grey, wet, with strong cold wintery winds…that at times, have felt energetically draining too.

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Silver

HOW I FEEL:

She had stars behind each eyelid,
A galaxy in her soul,
That drew people to her endless heart,
She was made of earth and fire,
Of wishes cast on shooting stars…

Yes, I accept that I am still very fragile…should I be? I don’t know? But of course the whole of last week was extremely busy for me. Getting ready to teach (Colour Therapy) for 4 days, which required preparation on may levels. Looking for notes, sorting out printed pages, throwing away, tidying and arranging as I went…Pouring bottles, arranging, unpacking and finally – ‘me time’ to prepare myself.

It went very well and now its over. I am grateful and satisfied. Here I am with my feet up and a cup of hot tea beside me…

“I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn.

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said,

people will forget what you did,

but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

PHYSICALLY: I have been forced to take one day at a time, since having a mild heart attack in October. Resting, pensive, yet lively thoughts and ideas fill my mind…
But, each body has received many mixed signals lately, with many conflicting truths. Are our bodies in overload?! Mine seems to be taking on a life of its own. Yes, I do believe that all of humanity is in overload. Especially physically and emotionally.

I get a strong feeling that its time of run all to help create a new world – for all of us to move into. We have each changed so much! Yes, in different ways, but we are not the same people we were last year this time. Are we? I know I am not!

We have been inching towards the doorway to that ‘next world’ for so long, that some of us want to give up. Stop I say! Lets do this together, because we can! We have had to re-think what we knew to be true, and we have to learn new ways to live in this rapidly shifting world.

‘The reason why most of us wear out, or give up –

is because they don’t know how to transform the beautiful things around them

into energy and enthusiasm.’

Ashtara

Do not despair, question too deeply, or attempt to understand ALL that happens, and as it unfolds in your own life, or to those around you. Take your time to rest, to think clearly, to breath! Let body, mind and emotions constantly re-balance. Then allow these world changes and the many earth changes, to be what they need to be, knowing that changes are happening in each and every moment. Much like a run-away train…And it may well confuse us and frighten us, yet at the same time, new ways of being are appearing in tandem.

Seasons of Change…

BLOGX2:10:12&:14:8:14

“No matter how dark the night…

somehow the sun rises once again and all shadows are chased away…”

TODAY: Autumn is showing herself…I greet this day with anticipation. It feels chilly. Its early…I am slowly waking. I sense ‘happenings’ going on under the radar…

IN ONE WORD: Evolution

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Pink

HOW I FEEL: Unsettled, yet moving into the day at a gentle steady pace. Change is all around me. I feel the vibration here. I have simplified my thoughts, lifted my spirit and as of today I am beginning to feel more like myself.

PHYSICALLY: Healing heart…Harnessing the new…

it releases tension that has been building up.

This is nothing less than a change of seasons

and a change in your way of thinking.’

Bobbie Klein

As we are called to examine our emotions and our beliefs, which often prompts deep inner-changes as well as external shifts, our bodies grow tired. Feeling under the weather is the way they let us know that it’s time to take a break.

So much change, unrest, war, peace, light, dark, sadness, grief, love, hate and every emotion imaginable is in us and all around us.

We say we accept change, whilst not fully understanding what that means in our own world, our country, our home, our life…We don’t sleep well, perhaps eat too much or too little, pray too hard, are forgetful too often, feeling unsettled and often fragile…some times seem ‘not of this world.

but toward creating the world that could be.’

Dance With Me – In Ancient Lands…

Dance with Me
In Ancient Lands
Under Sunny Skies
Hand in Hand

We will touch the Heavens
In a Ceremony of Rebirth
Living every Breath as a Miracle
We will Change the Earth*

TODAY:

The winds of change are blowing…Time to think deeply, appreciate and honour our path. Strong winds are beginning to settle here, after several days of intense wild wind blowing though the Town..along with light rain. Feeling cold deep in my bones…A sense that more hibernation is needed…Is it Spring yet?

PHYSICALLY: We all need to remember – during these shifts you may need more minerals, vitamins, herbs and plant medicine. Talk to your body or consult someone with expertise in these areas. Use what feels right for you! Energy balancing, cleansing, crystal elixirs, crystals, flower and plant essences, Homeopathy, Aromatherapy, Reflexology, sound and music therapy….and more. Then, allow yourself to rest when ever needed and spend those rest times alone…

Things are heating up in our external world and since we each play off the energy of one another

there is no better time than the immediate NOW to find stillness.”

For many years many of us have held ourselves back, retracted ideas, words, love, our very persona, our essence….from the mainstream, from friends, from those you drew close to you…But, this is the time to be proud of who you are, to honour this journey and the many other life journeys that you have already taken…Every Divine Experience of your life has brought you to this place where you find yourself in this moment…
