Think With Your Heart…

‘Are you not tired of holding up all those walls?
Is it not time now, to go beyond the realm you’ve mastered and become new again?
Fear not the rebirthing, after such a glorious, conscious death. Rejoice!’
Alison Nappi

HOW I FEEL: ‘Opening our minds to think with our hearts, defines the form that magic can take in our lives…’ Vasumi

During this month I have been in the process of letting go. I have experienced days of feeling vulnerable, yet also strong, nervous yet deeply aware and in my own power, sometimes there was sadness, yet only very briefly…followed by acceptance and understanding.

From all of this, I hope to discover a new rhythm of life, a divine flow, an inner song…As all of this has been taking place, new doorways have opened and new connections are birthing.

PHYSICALLY: Steady. With periods of wavering energy, followed by rest and restoration. I am having sessions of Acupuncture, and finding this restores my inner harmony very quickly.

INSIGHTS: ‘During times of spiritual transformation along with earth’s evolutionary process – our identity and focus can change quickly and unexpectedly. “

Love is every where and yet we close our eyes, bury our heart and march on…on with what is old, tired, familiar and in many ways, already gone…gone forever! And that is what you most fear.

THE COLLECTIVE: ‘This evolution is a necessary condition of all further scientific thought. But, evolution is also psychic, spiritual and sacred…’ Teilhard de Chardin

As the first month of 2016 draws to a close, let us refocus and prepare for a new month…Breath a deep clear breath and look into your heart to see how your are feeling. I understand more clearly who I am and who we are – Let us each make sure that we continue to shine our Light on everything around us and keep moving steadily forward!

‘You think you are alive because you breathe air? 
Shame on you, that you are alive in such a limited way. 
Don’t be without Love, so you won’t feel dead. 
Die in Love and stay alive forever. ‘
Rumi

The Messenger of Love…

60392ed959735adde3d52a11627b7d4e

“The Sphinx, the Pyramids,
the stone temples are, all of them,
ultimately as flimsy as London Bridge;
our cities but tents set up in the cosmos.
We pass.
But what the bee knows,
the wisdom that sustains our passing life
– however much we deny or ignore it –
that for ever remains.”
P.L. Travers

TODAY: It is a perfect early summer morning! I feel enriched, alive and blessed.

ONE WORD: Appreciation – with a dash of Natures enchantment added to this day.

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Gold

HOW I FEEL: I began my day looking out from my upstairs window to view a the blue sky and heavenly day. Very quickly I noticed in the guttering; a Bumble Bee that seemed to have recently been trapped by a spider. The spider was busily trying to wrap the Bee into its web.

I felt an overwhelming sadness, but leapt into ‘flight and flight’ mode, wanting desperately to save the precious Bee…
But reaching as far out of my window as possible, I was unable to reach the Bee. I felt helpless and deeply upset. Yes, I understand that Nature takes Her own course, but I am so aware of the plight of the Bee on our Planet…
For some reason today, I felt very deeply about this little snapshot of life, playing out before me.

PHYSICALLY: I felt an incense heart ache and could not stop myself from quietly weeping for the next hour or more…
Of course, that is what has motivated my Blog today.

Honey is like the morning sun,

with all the grace of summertime and the old freshness of autumn.

It is the withered leaf and it is the corn.

Federico Garcia Lorca

INSIGHTS: Bee Lore goes back to ancient times, when bees were considered a symbol of the soul, of death and rebirth. There are even medieval hymns that referred to the Virgin Mary as the bee hive, and Christ as the honey that flowed from her. In some stories, the Virgin Mary was associated with the Queen Bee, and in ancient Greece the Goddess Demeter was referred to as the Queen Bee, and her Priestesses were the worker bees, who served her.

THE COLLECTIVE: Long ago, honey was regarded as a magical, sacred substance. People were buried in it, not only because it was a preservative, but because “bee-balm” as it was called, was thought to contain a resurrection potency. It was one of the libations offered to the Gods of Greece, and believed to be the food of poets and muses.

For to the bee a flower is a fountain of life. 


And to the flower a bee is a messenger of love.  

And to both,

bee and flower,

the giving and the receiving of pleasure


is a need and an ecstasy.

The Bees say thanks! This is a real threat everyone. Bees are dying out. Whole colonies have disappeared all over the world. Please use chemicals responsibly. Natural is better for our environment.

Timeless Moments…

Weavers

Find the golden thread

that weaves the coarse,

the old, the new;

Into that shining whole

that is so uniquely you.

—-willow —

new born-Christian Schloe

 

DAY: opening up, brighter, damp, cold

WORD: unconditionality

COLOUR: violet-blue

FEELING: deep sadness, yet a new understanding, an awareness of much being released, individually and collectively

BODY: pulsating, renewal in progress, processing emotions

THE COLLECTIVE: 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, even for me, it is hard to know how to apply unconditionality into everyday living. How to touch others who just “don’t get it” yet? Words, even actions don’t always seem to be enough…

INSIGHTS: 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.
