The Gift of Life…

This time on Earth is a tremendous gift! 
An unwritten book, a blank canvas…
provided for our own new creation. 
Yet, there is nothing to says that life will remain as it is…
Ashtara

TODAY: I looked out at a clear blue sky, green shoots, buds, tulips and daffodils blooming! And, sunshine!

WORD: Bliss

COLOUR: Golden

FEELING:

“No matter how dark the night…

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

Today I am walking on sunshine! Last week was an extremely tough one for me. There were moments when I thought I may not make it through. I worked through some deep painful wounds, that exposed themselves as I was writing my life story.

I apologise to my Blog followers for not writing my Blog as often. I must admit to being absorbed by the writing of my first book. I am at 29,000 words, about half way now. Which is more of a surprise to me than anyone else.

It has been suggested to me for years now, to write. I responded with a standard answer “I can’t write, I could never write a whole book” One morning something clicked into place, I sat down and out it all began to spill out of me.

To live deeper we have to go to the places that help us find a slower rhythm.
But simply going to these places is not enough.

We have to let these places touch us, change us, speak to us.



Oriah Mountain Dreamer

PHYSICALLY: Healing, settling, quiet. Gratitude fills me today.

INSIGHTS:
I have come to bring out the beauty you never knew you had, and lift you like a prayer to the sky


Rumi

Part of unconditional love is loving the small stuff, noticing even the most functional. Treating every person and creature who come into our lives as if they matter. In fact flowers, plants, pets, cars, kettles and even material objects respond to love, gratitude and appreciation. Let us all Bless things as we go about our day.

THE COLLECTIVE:
As the larger Universe spins us deeper into the Mystery, multiple changes inspire us to take a more conscious route.
 For those who have eyes to see, the signs of rebirth and renewal are everywhere.

For us in the Northern Hemisphere, a long winter is finally ending! Come on! Throw out the old tired jumpers, jackets, sox, tights, belts, boots, bags, and any other well worn items!
Rid your home of the clutter, papers, books, magazines, odd crockery, cutlery and more.
Start this Summer fresh, clean, colourful, energised and re-newed!

AFFIRMATION: “I am blessed…”

Good Friday (God Friday)…

“And Jesus said to Mary: Cast this sadness away from you and do this service

Be a messenger for me to these wandering orphans.”

The Coptic Psalmbook

Ecce_homo_by_Antonio_Ciseri_(1)
I have lit candles for Christ, for Mary and for Magdalene…I have done an Invocation for the World and the meaning/appreciation of this day…

To me, its about death and rebirth, really….

With Easter and commercial easter-egg sales taking center stage on these holidays, its interesting that few take the time to remember its the time of Christ – the crucifixion – we are meant to remember…

10272635_1140389769312640_7092267460001999006_o

So, what ever you do today, take a moment to think about what you want to let go of, and what you want to birth into your life today…

Unwinding Fear…

BLOG:14:7:14:Spark

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: “…it is as if my heart put on a face and walked into the world.” Sylvia Plath
A slow languid beginning. An almost sombre air to this Sunday – Remembrance Sunday (some know it only as ‘red poppy day’). I could have slept all day, my cosy bed, warm and inviting. I looked out at yet another dark, heavily clouded sky. The air and Earth damp from the rain. I long to see a clear blue sky! It has rained for 3+ days, gently cleansing. Crisp cold air swirling around outside.

IN ONE WORD: Grace –

“Grace is a power that comes in and transforms a moment into something better”
Caroline Myss

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Autumn blaze….yet Grey.

BLOG:13:2

HOW I FEEL: Lighter, open, accepting, adjusting, shedding – Quiet, slow, wistful, introspective, observing…

PHYSICALLY: In the profound quiet of meditation, I listen to my body.

12105940_10153233367223297_5394619054703607231_n

INSIGHTS: ‘The influx of ‘new time’ as an energy is constant.

In every nano-second there is change.’

Ashtara

Ah yes, the 11:11 is almost upon us. Yet I feel quite clearly that we are in that phase already…
Hmm…more shifts, changes, which have become part of an ever changing life on Earth. Ecstatic energy burst, interspersed with depletion, restlessness and of course for me; headaches from the solar flares, on the 4th and 7th. But, I also sense these ‘otherworldly’ energies, with messages, insights, nudges and often, alchemical action…

And so, many days ahead of intense energies. I feel this all around me and deep within. Downloading here on this sweet Earth and within (‘on Earth as it is in Heaven’ comes to my mind) each one of us. Knowingly or unknowingly…

Taking time to rest, to understand, to accept and then to allow self nurturing and more rest.

THE COLLECTIVE: “Most of our obstacles would melt away if,

instead of cowering before them,

we should make up our minds to walk boldly through them.”

‘Our hearts have opened and melded together to form one magnificent giant portal of light, for the many to step into or pass through. We will hold this doorway open to all those who wish to step over the threshold into this emerging ’new world.’

Find a peaceful method or place, where you can take time alone to recalibrate certain thoughts, or old mental patterns.

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

Turning the Page…

TODAY:

A new day dawns! Bright, shimmering, fresh, invigorating…I am alive!

IN ONE WORD: Glory

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Silver White

HOW I FEEL:

“When setting out on a journey,

do not seek advice from those who have never left home…”

Rumi

Happy, humbled, blessed, loved and overwhelmed by the generosity of the Universe…last night there was a sudden shift in me. I lay awake at about midnight, and a fresh perspective came to me…I feel as if I let go of buckets of old stored memories…

Suddenly new energy seemed to enfold me and nudge me gently beyond what, at the time, felt like intense challenges…finally I felt clear, brighter, with a renewed sense of joy!

I felt as if I had turned the page of a huge heavy old book….there was clarity of mind, and a deep sense of a very different chapter about to unfold….and the happiness coming my way. A new beginning awaits us ALL!

PHYSICALLY:

The body is an invitation, an entryway into the freedom, love, and vastness that you are. For it is out of this alive, pregnant mandala of creativity that flow the qualities of kindness, wild compassion, attunement, and presence. This is what you are.

Matt Licatta

We are/have developed a new depth of taste, feel, smell, and there are constant changes in heart and mind. Be kind, be gentle…

INSIGHTS:

Where do we find the secret?

In the desert?

In the faraway past?

In secret matter?

Is it to be found in the future and its increase….
Teilhard de Chardin

At times you will feel like a bucket with holes…
Our Divinity seams to leak out. We each long for balance and peace on Earth. 
Many of us have chunks of time where we become unsure, feel unworthy…and doubt the truth – that YOU are DIVINE…and that Darkness is part of you.


Focus on integration and balance. Dark spins light forward as you integrate you embrace your Divinity! There is nothing to fear. Remain safe and comfortable in your body/cocoon – know and understand that your Soul Seed is indestructible….

THE COLLECTIVE:

There is a fifth dimension, beyond that which is known to man.

It is a
 dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity.

It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition.


Rod Sterling

In the midst of much chaos and confusion, there is outer-world evidence of genuine, positive change taking place. Now it is the responsibility of each one of us, to stay focused on what is good and healing for all Life on
 Earth.

We are in the process of creating a New Earth, and everything we think, feel, do and say adds to the world we are creating, moment by moment.



I feel the strong desires of many around me, to experience a deeper level of love. New sensitivity with heartfelt feelings. Our vibrations changing constantly. And whatever is not working, now is the exact time to let it go!

995626_10152238498300598_7507116357801585829_n

Co-creating Heaven on Earth may seem like an unobtainable quest in the face of outer-world appearances, but from the Heart of the Heavens above – “I AM, All That Is”, is ringing throughout the whole of Creation. With our combined focus and efforts to create this new Heaven on Earth, our Victory is assured.

You are the road of Love, and at the end my home


one of the crowd, and yet I see you crowned.


I see you in stars, in the sun, in the moon


here in green leaves, and high on a throne.

TODAY: Cold, wind, a soft grey mist surrounds me…constant rain…soft drops balancing on leaves and petals. Birds scurrying for food. Silence, anticipation, opening portals, new chapters.

IN ONE WORD: Expansiveness

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Aqua Blue with hints of silver.

HOW I FEEL:

You, who are reading this: it is up to you.
You, who have seen to the edge of the world: you are called.
You, who have been set aflame, burned to ash, and resurrected: it is time.
You, who have heard the trumpet singing your name: 
you are healed enough to begin.

Life is hurtling ahead at a speed that none understand or believe, until much later and time has passed – when we are reborn and able to ‘see’ with new eyes. I feel the changes hourly and understand fears and uncertainty. As I move through different layers of my life, in and out I go, and I see, I know. I get a picture of the dreams that await us, and you my dearest precious friends are in all those dreams…Interesting.

10959911_4906261511821_2114114969243740974_n

PHYSICALLY:
We are all, (knowingly or unknowingly) constantly re-aligning and re-balancing. The brain, body and emotions, trying to play catch up. Technology causing overwhelm and over stimulation. Broken sleep. Time speeding.

INSIGHTS:

“I have learnt ‘patience’ from the Earth,

‘omnipresence’ from the Air,

‘non-attachment’ from the Sky,

‘taintlessness’ from the Fire,

‘purity’ from the Water,

and the truth that all changes are for the ‘body’

and not for the ‘SELF’ from the Moon.
DATTATREYA

Much of the information you have been receiving over the past years, (from a variety of sources), has seemed to be of similar content…have you  become discouraged by what you read or heard? So little of it seemed tangible, solid or real.
 But, now you may begin slowly to notice, how all of that information already stored, is coming to pass.

THE COLLECTIVE:

“Let others talk 
about Thorns.


I will tell the tales of Rose petals.”

Do not despair, question too deeply, or attempt to understand ALL that is happening in your world. Let it be your life, see it happening to yourself and those around you. Let old patterns fall away. In stillness find balance and harmony.

Absorb what you need, discard the rest. Settle your energy; your body, your mind and allow change to be simply that – change! Knowing too, that changes are happening in every nano second…and may continue for many years to come. Let it happen, the changes that are upon us and they are unstoppable…It is so.
InLa’Kech

like dew on the tip of a leaf.”

Rabindranath Tagore

TODAY: Wet, windy, a chilly day, expectant, birthing, softer…

IN ONE WORD: Reverent

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Magenta

BLOG:2:7:14:_n

HOW I FEEL: Gentle, open, loving, aware of a huge ‘next’ coming towards us. Candles lit, prayer, invocations, acceptance…rest.

PHYSICALLY: Tired, broken sleep, aware of new feelings and energies. feeling introspective yet mellow. Legs restless and tingling at night. Heady, even more sensitive to aromas, scents, smells. Sinus.

INSIGHTS:

“Go forth and let your Light shine brightly.

Great moments are arising from this.”

Ashtara

11088822_10153107637023991_2107430090520336802_o

I feel a soft gracious stirring here…an awakening? Almost like an unconscious gentle surrender. There is a deep inner knowing within of who we are, how we are and where we are on our individual journeys… Lets allow reverence, forgiveness, more compassion and true understanding…Finally getting that; all ‘the trivia’ is but that – as we graciously see and accept that there has to be a better way.

THE COLLECTIVE:

And though we seem to be sleeping,

there is an inner wakefulness that directs the dream,

and that will eventually startle us back

to the Truth of who we are.

Dreaming, treading water, eyes wide shut, hearts fluttering, senses restricted, emotions bursting…
‘So do not let a weary body and a perhaps somewhat befuddled mind, hold you back more than necessary.’ Aisha North

Much distracts us in our world. Information, computers, television, music and noise…are we too easily distracted?
When you are in your head you close the door to your higher wisdom and soul connection. Instead bring back soft music, gentle movement, and deep focus to find yourself in your real world…

Memories of Life…

10984063_10153034088479765_7770381792901673668_n

Each of us brings something alive in the world that no one else can.

There is a profound necessity at the heart of individuality.

When your life awakens and you begin to sense the destiny that brought you here,

you endeavour to live a life

that is generous and worthy of the blessing and invitation

that is always calling you.

John O’Donohue

TODAY: Dense and pensive day. As I look out of my window the scene looks, murky, unclear, hazy – with thick low white clouds hanging over the sky…Earlier it was milder but now I feel cold…

ONE WORD: Memories

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Purple to Aquamarine

DSCF0022

HOW I FEEL: Life is shorter and more precious than we care to know. All too often we act with indifference to all that it offers, often there is fear…without enough love for ourselves, after all we have come through…and usually not allowing ourselves to love anyone freely, even at this stage of life, on this sweet Earth…

10945576_10153001355472731_3588834849758573162_n

PHYSICALLY: Brief bursts of energy, followed by a bouts of lethargy with little or no energy…Solar flares are upon us!

INSIGHTS: Thoreau and his choice of lifestyle comes from a far removed generation, a different time on this earth, or is it? What could one learn from such an existence in this day? What do you see as the most fulfilling lifestyle for you during this time on earth? Or have you found it already?

kerkyra_s2_

My first experience of ‘finding myself’ began in the most simplified version of life, that I have lived thus far. It was during the ’80’s. I was living on the magical Greek island of Corfu. I would while away the waking hours, living in a state of deep introspection…often sipping a glass of white wine or drinking a mug of tea, while staring out at the  horizon and into the great ocean of life – with that – the turquoise sea, the sands, the sunsets, the stars and the moon…

We must invest our energy only in the people, places, and things

that can hold our investment sacred

and return the energy we give in the same manner.
