SATORI – 10-page Newsletter – Final Edition – Dec. 2016

757cb00681e71aa97bfdd7c47d3b5912

The 10 page ‘Winter Solstice’ Edition, brings us to the end of 2016. And as many of you know, after 17+ years of writing Newsletters to you, this is to be the final…

The website – http://www.alorahsnewsletter.com will remain live for you to access and enjoy, many past editions.

This final edition is uploaded to the website for you to read at your leisure…

If you would like your own PDF copy, let me know.

Excerpt:

The cycle is almost complete…we are racing towards the end of an extraordinary year, and an era! It has been an eventful year for all of us! We as ‘One’ have been through a myriad of experiences, too many to mention…

I feel as if this year has changed me at a very deep level and that who I AM, is different in so many ways. I am sure you can resonate with that!

It has been a joy and a privilege to keep connected with you and to share what I was feeling, seeing and understanding…
Always with the intention to support my Soul Family, from afar.

I had already stopped sharing my own insights as frequently as I once did. There is just too much mis-information and channelled messages out there now. I chose instead, to become a silent observer.

I will write my Blogs, as I am guided to share with you. If you feel nudged, go to WordPress and click ‘follow.’

As I write the final words of SATORI, which in various formats, has been going for 17years – I’d like to thank you sincerely for receiving my Newsletters into your life during 2016 and all the way back – and for sometimes taking a few moments to consider my views. It has been a pleasure to work with you over the past years.

I send you heartfelt blessings for Christmas and I pray that 2017 transports you safely as you continue your journey.
Blessings, Ashtara Ra♕

People celebrate the midsummer sun as it rises over the megalithic monument of Stonehenge on June 21, 2005 on Salisbury Plain, England. Crowds gathered at the ancient stone circle to witness the sun rise on the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.

“Its time to accept that a new epoch has begun and that alongside this new beginning, there is to be more rapid change, that will perhaps continue for the rest of your lifetime on this sweet Earth.”

Leaping Towards the Light…

12308409_1242729209086450_2900732658622109396_n

TODAY: Wet, soft, rainy, overcast, birthing, quiet…

ONE WORD: Transition

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Deep Pink

12342357_1242817189077652_2835478119988018829_n

HOW I FEEL:

“Because beneath the small daily trials are harder paradoxes, things the mind cannot reconcile but the heart must hold if we are to live fully: profound tiredness and radical hope; shattered beliefs and relentless faith; the seemingly contradictory longings for personal freedom and a deep commitment to others, for solitude and intimacy, for the ability to simply be with the world and the need to change what we know is not right about how we are living.”

Oriah Mountain Dreamer

78dc3838bdda3ab8dd9c8c854754555c

After a couple of weeks of less than vibrant health and low energy, added to that, erratic sleep patterns. There have been days when I feel so deeply tired, as if I am holding up all the walls…and other day when I feel ever hopeful and inspired, ready for what ever come next.

I have surfaced today, after a much better sleep last night, feeling energised and alive! Feeling as if I have come through a massive Initiation and/or physical re-alignment – is it complete? I know I need to listen to my heart and be gentle with myself…

12348064_1242683029091068_2581799606819915552_n
PHYSICALLY:

‘So do not let a weary body and a perhaps somewhat befuddled mind hold you back more than necessary.’

Aisha North

Lets not go there today…(chuckling)

INSIGHTS:

“Sometimes ‘who am I,’ is not as important as leaping. We know what is the next leap we need to take. Leaping toward the Light, and right divinely lifted flight.”

Star weather Whale

350px-Candles_image_Meditation

There have been days when I feel as if I am dragging myself around, but at the same time, I am very aware that something spectacular and significant is happening to our world!

Some things that are familiar and comfortable, even pleasant, are falling away and will be no more. On a global level there are elements that I do not feel happy about, but I am doing my best to look at the big picture and a future which I know, is not visible yet…

‘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.’

Ashtara

BLOG:31:5:14:_5221485144903032672_n

THE COLLECTIVE:

“This is the reality we live: aspiring to be at our best, longing for and sometimes finding meaning and connection within ourselves and with that which is larger than ourselves, we are undone by messy bathrooms, traffic jams and burnt toast.”

Oriah Mountain Dreamer 

A ‘rocky ride’ ahead for the rest of this year and into 2017. That is what I sense and feel. More changes are coming, not all will feel right or comfortable…

I understand that to compensate for what we are living through right now, we need constant nourishment, healing, quiet time, and allowing self-acceptance and self-love to flourish.

I strive to keep returning to a place of balance – (to the best of my ability). I am keeping my mind and heart open and receptive to everything around me and in me…and watching…waiting…treading water…

Drink In The Beauty…

33787a7017b3c90c6037984042875b01

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J. J Tolkien

TODAY: Clearer, milder, its dry today…Yipee…Yesterday was dark and wet, but today a blue sky twinkled from above…It made my heart sing!

IN ONE WORD: Stability

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Ice Blue

1455099_1374323562815144_2000596384_n

HOW I FEEL:

As we become purer channels for God’s light, we develop an appetite for the sweetness that is possible in this world.
Marianne Williamson

I am observing. Always seeking clarity and truth. The insights kept coming. Going through layer upon layer of deep healing and the strengthening…light shining through…self discovery.
This year has changed me! You? I am in a new space in every possible way…
No, it has not been easy. But every moment has been cathartic and a gift. But, the spiritual avalanche its over…I AM…

dd279264f5a5ce6b58fb990ed428b3c2

PHYSICALLY: Getting stronger, my vitality returning more and more each day. I am still under medical supervision and my own ‘health regime’ since the heart attack on September 21st. Some days I feel stronger than on others physically, but overall I am filled with boundless optimism.

INSIGHTS:

“We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.”

J.K Rowling

61d784a117b0ec98354e022b558c9c4c

Some are awakening to a more realistic view of life on Earth. Hearts are filled with love yet often, misunderstandings and misunderstood. Who we are and were we are headed, is changing constantly. For many, even dramatically. This along with all the changes and behaviours of those around us, we (unknowingly) resist and we fear…because its so unlike us and so unfamiliar…It will lead to positive change and transformation, ultimately!

d69358e33f0fc0e697141175ef49273e

“Sometimes beautiful things come into our lives out of nowhere.

We can’t always understand them, but we have to trust in them.

I know you want to question everything,

but sometimes it pays to just have a little faith.” 


Lauren Kate, Torment

THE COLLECTIVE:

“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all.

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

tumblr_m82bqa6uif1qiz569o1_r1_500

I have decided that each day I will drink from the beauty all around me, and allow it to rejuvenate my entire Being. All we need to do is pause, for just one minute, and really take it in, remembering to thank Mother Nature for her beauty. This is one of the real blessings of life…

Lets also make the pathways clearer for others – enabling them to see a ‘new way’ of how to get to ‘the light.’ Offer yourself up as a ‘Bridge between Heaven and Earth.’

AFFIRMATION: “I love and approve of myself, just the way I AM”

Misty Mornings…

10857743_10205273318822008_1077246424507719426_n

There are a special few times


In our lives when we pass by each other,


When trees dance, and rain falls upward,


When the ocean calls as if it remembers
 Our names,


When the moon is poured out like whiskey,


And coyotes gather in total silence…


When time for an instant stops,


And the rocks beneath our feet share secrets.


These are the moments of true kinship,


That small minds call eternity!


Eric

TODAY: A dense, silent mist gives Glastonbury an air of mystery…It feels ancient yet new. I feel it…

I sense times gone by…other worlds and different dimensions…

A slow, chilly morning, my world taking its time to wake from its nightly slumber. Autumn showing herself. I feel is in the air.

ONE WORD: Gratitude

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Gold

HOW I FEEL:

“The cosmos that you and I are experiencing right now, with trees, plants, people, houses, cars, stars, and galaxies,

is just consciousness expressing itself at one particular frequency.”

Deepak Chopra

995626_10152238498300598_7507116357801585829_n
I AM settling, accepting, resting, allowing. A need for long hours of sleep, with delicious dreams, to integrate these new energies. Many new ideas, thoughts and insights.

INSIGHTS: Allow your own inner wisdom to move you in which ever direction feels right for you…there are no mistakes, there is only love.
Many people feel restless, and may feel the need to move out of busy towns and major cities. These places no longer ‘fit’, they feel loud, jarring to the nervous system, too fast, out of harmony and crowded.

10411028_10152600425769530_3115522099972768405_n

THE COLLECTIVE:

“Your soul knows the geography of your destiny. Your soul alone has the map of your future, therefore you can trust this indirect, oblique side of yourself.

If you do, it will take you where you need to go, but more important it will teach you a kindness of rhythm in your journey.”

John O’Donohue, Anam Cara

11062330_10152825127346359_8033749419034263219_n

The Earth and Sky need to be viewed with new eyes….vision needs to be expanded and opened. New learning and sharing must happen for the Earth to truly shift these powerful areas of the planet in accordance with the entire Universe and new new Gaia…We are headed in a new direction.

AFFIRMATION: “As of today, I live with grace and gratitude…”

“The adventure of life is to learn. The purpose of life is to grow.

The nature of life is to change.

The challenge of life is to overcome.

The essence of life is to care. 

The opportunity of life is to serve.

The secret of life is to dare.

The spice of life is to befriend.

The beauty of life is to give.”

TODAY: Dull, dense, expectant, waiting gently…heavy rain expected!

IN ONE WORD: Change

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Emerald Green

HOW I FEEL: Doing the very best I can, with where I AM, and what I know and understand.

Resting. Aware. Awake.

PHYSICALLY: Dealing with cardiac issues…challenging. Uncomfortable and unpleasant…

This too shall pass…

INSIGHTS:

The tides have turned. New energies and earthly matters are in hand…shifts in opinion? Listen, observe, wait…timing…2017?

“The past as you know it is over. The new is very subtly hidden, but active and aligned.
Your purpose, if you focus, is crystal clear already. Your heart often feels fear and vacillates from being fully open and then over protected…
Eventually you will feel safer and more stable and balanced – then you will harness the extent of the love energy that you carry.”*

“The truth.” Dumbledore sighed…

“It is a beautiful and terrible thing,

and should therefore be treated with great caution.”

Millions are moving across the globe – east to west, north to south…

Expect the unexpected.

“You are even now resisting new information that is around you. What you call the ‘comfort zone’ seems preferable to you…See all of this as but one more transitional step and then a breathing space.

You are all shifting on an hourly and daily basis. The extra time you need will be held firmly in place for you to advance and will adjust to your lapse in concentration…

When 92 days have passed, your mind and heart will be ready to proceed and then speed will be apparent to all. ‘Time will fly’ as you say, much will occur in rapid succession.”*

‘You are learning how to ‘be’ the new human.

Everyone is on the same page.

There are no experts here,

you are all connecting with the Cosmic Heart

SATORI – My Newsletter – December edition is now uploaded!

Christmas-Decorations-Party-Ideas

The December Edition is ready.

With the Solstice tomorrow, 21:12, it felt timely to have it done by today.

You can read the 9-page edition on the Newsletter website:

http://www.alorahsnewsletter.com

10409324_647817501997900_8019093264745756332_n

Excerpt:

Where to begin this month?

I feel as if I am newly energised, yet overloaded too, with ideas, insights, feelings, emotions, experiences and more!
Because of this, I am unsure how to put what I feel into words. I feel as if I have become even more sensitive to various energies; especially weather, light, noise, crowds, people and foods.

With the weather, I seem to be getting an actual feeling or emotion, coming up through Gaia during certain weather. It affects my body strongly. Noise and sound seem intensified to me, light feels too bright and to be in a crowd is overwhelming…

As we move more and more into this unknown vibration, the planet is experiencing Her own evolution and shifting accordingly. Facing Her own imbalances and crisis. Gaia is talking to us loud and clear, but many choose not to listen. The animal kingdom is giving us clear signs, which are often ignored.
All this is happening as we attempt to keep our everyday lives ‘ordinary.’ Yet, I am so thankful that I share this planet with you all!

‘Like minds’ and feeling hearts, make us feel less lonely. I thank the Divine for who we all are…and that which we are becoming…
We are still on our long journey of self discovery, in a year that is anything but harmonious!

Thank you for all the many sacrifices you are making, that include losses yet also great gains!
It has been an extraordinary few years, filled with many unexpected changes…

Find a place of peace in all of this.

This is a Pledge…

b-94259_0

“This is a pledge not to leave any aspect of myself behind, not to over-ride any aspect that needs to pause, or needs an inner story to come to the surface. It could be emotional, mental, spiritual or physical. I will pause and listen.”

TODAY: Soft, quiet, with a new peacefulness. A gentle shift still taking place…cold and softly raining…dark, with strong cleansing winds. Birds hungry and busy.

IN ONE WORD: Loving

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Golden Hues

leuviahelangelprotectordepecadores

HOW I FEEL: It has been a powerful and potent time on Earth these past days. Many ‘happenings’ (on so many levels) have taken place globally and personally in recent weeks, as well as for most of this year…which are too numerous to mention.

Accept and appreciate these experiences, however you have received them. Allow too, the process of letting go, with love. I have experienced many days, when I have felt as if I have been run over by a bus, with a level of exhaustion that is unfamiliar to me…Often, I have felt weak yet in my power, nervous yet accepting, sad but understanding. I know that I am ‘dying to the old’…’I AM becoming’ – more and more of who I truly am, in each and every moment. From all of this, will come a new found rhythm of life, a new cycle, a divine flow…

025fe93106050eeca656c44fd2b8f341

INSIGHTS: Today, stop rushing through your spiritual search. Take a moment to breathe. God is here, right now. You have everything you need. 

Learning to pace yourself, and to slow down in our fast-moving world, will for some, take focus and practice, but if you do take the time to become aware of the deep need to do so, you will surprise yourself with how natural living at a slower pace is for you…

THE COLLECTIVE: You cannot force anything to happen while you are in this process. So, relax as best you can. You are in transition, going towards your greater destiny. When relaxed you are expanding, not constricting, and the divine forces can more easily work through you and with you. Know that transformational forces are working magic in your life in ways you cannot comprehend at this time.

It is very clear that it is time to create a new world for all of us to move into. See and know that we are not the same Beings anymore. I know I am not! We have been inching towards a Doorway to the ‘next world’ for so long, that many of us have wanted to give up…

1379371_564670846939701_1351431040_n

AFFIRMATION: “I embrace all positive changes. I move forward with grace and gratitude…”

A 7-page December edition of my Newsletter – SATORI – will be uploaded to the website: http://www.alorahsnewsletter.com, by Sunday 21st. If you would like to receive your own PDF copy of my bi-monthly Newsletter by email, please ask.

Take Gentle Time…

WOMAN:GENTLE:FLOWERS:MISTY:_n

“What we forget is that at the centre of it all

there waits for us a sacred emptiness,

a spaciousness,

a stillness that renews and lets us remember

who and what we are.

Oriah Mountain Dreamer

DAY: Clear, hot, summery, floaty, ethereal…

WORD: Evolving

COLOUR: White

10302120_10202929006844394_5403319712347507575_n

FEELING: Reverent. The Solstice energies were powerful here in Glastonbury and as yet, I am unable to put into words my own experience of it. I felt abundant, blessed and rich in so many ways…I felt the Earth shift – the opening – the movement and the Love…

BODY: Recalibrating – 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 energy medicine, cleansing, crystal elixirs, crystals, flower and plant essences, aromatherapy, sound and music therapy. Get rest and spend gentle time alone.

THE COLLECTIVE: Doing the very best we can at this point in time, with what we know and understand to be True. Beginning to ‘understand…’

INSIGHTS: The more we rush and push for change or results in our lives, the less we achieve this. The more we push, the further we are from our center and from our higher connection with Soul and with God/dess…Bring yourself back to yourself in a way that allows for that connection, that depth of feeling, that calm and reverent softness….that fills the gap without action.
