Looking Beyond the Obvious…

“Another world is not only possible,
she is on her way.
On a quiet day,
I can hear her breathing.”
Arudhati Roy

TODAY: A chilly day, expectant, softer…Yet, ever changing, birthing the new, with winds of change blowing strongly.

WORD: Grace

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

Caroline Myss

COLOUR: White

I FEEL:
“I became aware of my destiny: to belong to the critical minority as opposed to the unquestioning majority.”

Sigmund Freud

I am sensing that we are beginning to regain balance and strength. Yet, expect days when we feel overtired, overwhelmed and too weak to go about your usual routine…Rest, be kind, allow time to restore your energy and regroup.

PHYSICALLY: We have experienced Solar flares, eclipses, equinoxes, full moons and much more. Sleep may not come easily, then nights of deep sleep. Lack of appetite shifting into extreme hunger and cravings. Restless legs, body, or mind comes and goes. Aches and pains here and there and everywhere, then no where…a few of the ever changing ‘ascension’ symptoms many are experiencing on a daily basis.

INSIGHTS:
“Would you like to save the world from the degradation and destruction it seems destined for? Then step away from shallow mass movements and quietly go to work on your own self-awareness. If you want to awaken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself.”

Lao Tzu

Lift your face to the heavens, breath in deeply, begin to live in the way you hoped you could, that you dreamt of and truly desire to be true for you! Step towards your dream and embrace it! Surrender to all else.

THE COLLECTIVE:
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes.

You can steer yourself any direction you choose.

You’re on your own. And you know what you know.

And YOU are the one who’ll decide where to go…”
Dr. Seuss

Look beyond the obvious. New energy will enfold you over the next weeks. The world is living on two or more realities simultaneously. Many Souls will be leaving this Earth.

Working through quantum leaps in energy and identity, need constant awareness and focus. The changes can cause feelings of lost identity. This can be emotionally and mentally disconcerting, but if we remain focused on being grounded, in the best way you know how, it will give a stronger sense of self with clarity of heart and mind.

‘On this path you will find yourself many, many times resisting with every fibre of your being just being here. There are places that will open in this blossoming which you would not want to open.’

Chameli Ardagh

Daily Transformation…

15977334_1241216072624389_3605429630152021171_n

The roar of ignorance echoes off of
indifferent walls, serving daggers to
the hungry, setting fire to the homeless,
betraying unborn children, and assaulting
the truth, as if a pigeon were God.
Eric Cockrell

DAY:

Unsheltered, wet, changeable, milder, strong winds

WORD: Exposed
COLOUR: Hazy pink

FEELINGS:

We cannot afford to stay stuck in the old life – for all is changing in a revolutionary way and this change is going to impact.  Judith Kusel

Undecided, pondering, understanding, adapting to all that is new.

c5ldcg0wmaekpke-jpg-large

BODY:

It is important to know that we are not struggling, for that is an old belief, we are just growing and expanding! We are aligning with the New!  Polona

Listen to your body. Rest, nap, sleep. I am bone weary, heady. Energy and info overload, re-settling.

INSIGHTS:

“Then rose the seed of Chaos, and of Night
To blot out order and extinguish Light”
Vera Brittain

Look at the world! Do your best to step back as you observe. Breath deeply and be prepared to face the chaos! Its everywhere! Change is needed. New plans, arrangements, laws, ruling, leadership, budgets, awareness and new ways of seeing our world are needed. We must look at what is before us with fresh eyes, creating a new vision for our world. We will need to re-balance, re-calibrate and adapt constantly!

c2xohumwgae4w9x-jpg-large

The next 24 months could be very bumpy. Sit tight, stay calm and be true to yourself. Rest, eat right, bake bread, make soups, take supplements, walk in nature, go to the sea and breath in the air, rest as often as you can. Listen to beautiful music, light candles, have plants and flowers around you. Watch only light entertainment.

“The cultural transformation from the love of power, to the power of love is the drama of our time.”  Anodea Judith

Take this time to “do no-thing.” Don’t fight yourself. All these energetic/planetary/sun/moon and political shifts that are affecting us, shall pass. See ‘Time-out’ as similar to rebooting a computer. You need to shut down completely for a brief period of time, in order to load new updated software.

The ideas we cling to limit us. We do not seek beyond their bounds… Sue Vincent

We’ve been in an eclipse window since Feb 11 Lunar Eclipse, and will be until Feb 27 Solar Eclipse. So much has happened in that brief window, so far…

No matter where we find ourselves, these times that we are going through, call us to meet personal and collective challenges, that are more difficult than anything we’ve ever been through before.

But, there is a lack of desire by most humans at this time, to see, to feel, to trust and recognise all the subtle changes happening in their bodies at an accelerated speed…It is time to pay closer attention.

The Links Between Us…

1184835_624575537586565_1049380652_n

‘Sometimes the love of the world is not good enough,
pure enough or true enough – to touch your heart and leave you empty.
This only calls for a love of a higher quality
and it’s this longing that inspires evolution.’ 
ST

TODAY: At last! A bright sunny day, after several icy cold, dark days, with rain and strong winds…It feels comforting and energising! Roll on Spring!

10906288_10152521542217477_8801330911822653461_n

IN ONE WORD: Endurance!

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Ice-Blue

HOW I FEEL: “I would say there exists a thousand unbreakable links between us and everything else, and that our dignity and our chances are one…” Mary Oliver
Accepting, slow, languid, enduring, looking at life ‘out there’ with curiosity, amazement, at times irritation, compassion, understanding, love and forgiveness.

1900002_10151936569241519_484523220_n

PHYSICALLY: These past few months have been a real challenge for me. I am doing my utmost to look at the broader picture. Weak and feeble right now, getting over a severe ‘gastric bug’ – or was it caused, in part, by a reaction to the Iodine injections I was given when having the Heart CT Scan…hmm…

INSIGHTS: Powerful Moons, followed by the Eclipse, solar flares to add to the mix! These recent events and shift have been so powerful that there is no going back, not for anyone…Lets take our time to absorb and settle body and mind. We need to allow these changes be what they are, knowing that changes are happening to all of us – whether we like it or not or believe it…

10923217_10153029243598158_3392297524920933573_n
“Eclipse energies can continue to work for days prior and days after the actual event. From here we are heading into the Spring Solstice and a Lunar eclipse. All of these are pushing us to dig up all that no longer serves and start new. It really is an intense month. Be very aware of your self talk, don’t beat yourself up for how you feel physically or mentally….” Jenny Schiltz.

shamwallEcclectic041RuthSandersonSnowPrincess
THE COLLECTIVE: The winds of change are blowing…pay attention. Silently watch, listen diligently, with an open mind and heart. But don’t let it stop you in any way…keep your dreams alive and take small steps daily to create them…

Live more fully, even in those moments of silence or aloneness. Understand that you are fuller, richer, and closer to your Creator than you have even been…Let the new breath of God lift you higher and breath you forward towards what it is, you always dreamed of…

Unwinding Fear…

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


Maybe a dawn breeze has blown the veil


from the face of God.

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.

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

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.

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,

‘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 Such-ness of Life…

REVERENCE:11020250_839654562738033_3626542310259820344_o

The art of life is to live in the present moment

and to make that moment as perfect as we can

by the realization that we are the instruments and expression of God himself.

TODAY: Bright, sunny, clear, uplifting, warm and delicious…energetically, ever changing.

ONE WORD: Delight!

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Summer colours…a rainbow of floral beauty…

HOW I FEEL:

We are powerful beyond measure, and so deeply vulnerable at the same time.

Jeff Brown

Happy, rested, joyful…after a very challenging few weeks, life has settled and resumed balance with an uplifting vibration. I am at peace with the ‘such-ness’ of life…

PHYSICALLY: Solar flares, eclipses, full moon…and so much more…Sleep, not enough, then plenty…urgently hungry, then no appetite – restless at times, aches and pains, headaches, are but a few of the ever changing ‘ascension’ symptoms many are experiencing on a daily basis…

INSIGHTS:

‘So divinely is the world organised that every one of us,

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe 

Lift your face to the heavens, breath deeply and begin to live in the way you always hoped you would, dreamt of and desire! Run towards that dream and embrace every bit of it! Because if you don’t do that now…surrender to it all…its not going to happen and you know that, you can feel that.

We are key players in a game that we chose to explore and live through. So, whats the rush…enjoy this time, its a monumental event!

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.

The Old World Crumbles…

“She was always daydreaming.

She never wanted to live in the real world;

she always seemed to be separated from other children her age.

They couldn’t understand her or her imagination.

She was always thinking outside of the box,

breaking rules,

and only following what her heart told her was right.”

~Shannon A. Thompson~

TODAY: I awoke to gentle Avalon mists, a soft energy around me as I write…its mild, mellow yet there is a sense of a deepening mood moving into this day…

IN ONE WORD: Courage!

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Golden hues…

HOW I FEEL: Yesterday I had felt bone weary, recovering from the recent onslaught from the intense solar flares. Yet today I AM prepared for the next layer to peel away exposing more of this new reality. Cutting away gently at more of what does not serve me.

I have slept deeply for the past 3 nights. Waking renewed and more settled. I understand and know that we are standing on the threshold of a changing world.

PHYSICALLY: My body feels safe and rested right now yet, there is a need for more rest and relaxation. My body/mind is constantly adjusting and re-aligning to this evolving world.

1538766_10204773741692892_4845443325699200707_n

INSIGHTS: As we slowly become more aware of the depth of all that is changing – and accept it, whilst we may not fully understanding what that means in our own world, our country, our community or personal life…deep inside we do know, and if we look, we see and feel an old world crumbling around us…

We often don’t sleep well, perhaps feel the need to eat too much or too little, we pray hard, are muddled and forgetful, often we feel unsettled…and some times seem ‘not of this world.’
We step in and out of our past – the memories and behaviour, we step in and out of a this new life – a new reality. We may hurt, cry, despair, hide, even delude. We clear out, we open, we shutdown, we are always seeking, making new choices…We embrace, we hold on and we also let go…Where are you, right now? At this very moment? Where ever it is, hold on tight! You have the courage to know that you are safe…

The outside world looks nothing like your Dream, but I know that it is simply the dismantling of an old way of being, an old system. Any outward signs of fear, discord even violence, are part of the cleansing. My feeling is that it will get worse before it rebalances. Know this and focus constantly on balance and harmony, to the best of your ability…All is well…

This is The Way…

Anyone can grow horizontally as they acquire more and more material things.

But it takes courage to grow vertically, deeper and deeper into yourself.

This kind of growth is far more rare.

And it’s the only growth that really counts.

Whitney Anthony

TODAY: A dull, blustery cool day – yet a air of excitement was out there, almost celebratory. Had I missed something? Was it Halloween shopping everyone was doing? Food and drink piled high on shopping trolleys…As I strolled home, my arms filled with large deep red flowers, I felt the wind whistling by, and on my cheeks, soft drops of fine rain. I felt as if I was walking on air…

HOW I FEEL: I have been guided to remind you that love, joy and fun are what we are here to do! In the midst of what feels like madness and chaos, I understand that change is here to stay. As I begin to embrace a new way of thinking, feeling and living, I see glimpses of a life filled with gentle laughter, soft love, inner balance and heavenly peace.

PHYSICALLY: As well as can be expected during Octobers two eclipses, Mercury in retrograde, solar flares, Autumns arrival and increased sensitivity to it all…

INSIGHTS: We are all beginning again, moving to new places, new relationships, leaving the old behind…Its done! We are ready for whatever it is we are designed for…it was all arranged a long time ago…

When you get bored doing nothing, you forget how to be nothing. This is where ‘being’ and peace arises.’ Liara Covert

We all know by now that this is a time of great change. We must all, as One, stand up and accept that we collectively have come to Earth to make the changes that Mother Earth needs. The entire Universe must work as One and move up/shift into a new world. Ashtara

The Song of the Heart…

tumblr_lmunq8Mbbd1qkezlmo1_500

The Sacred Space in each of our Hearts is the key, my friends.

There, beyond the mind and its insistent thoughts that never tire, is a pool of calm
clear water that is older than the most distant star.

And in this water, God moves like the wind over, around and through it.

Here we can dream a new world, and the dream will become Reality.

This is certain, for how do you think this world began?

TODAY: Mild but cooling. A cloak of dense cloud is moving across the sky, changing the mood and the weather…

IN ONE WORD: Anticipation

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Since Her Birthday on the 8th, I get a strong sense that Mother Mary has us cloaked in a robe of perfect BLUE.

HOW I FEEL: I still feel that I am ‘waiting’ for something…A sense of expectancy…as if something is about to ‘happen’
And then I understand that many of us have stepped away from – or let go of – a lot of what was ‘old and familiar’….and that right now, I/we are in a period of stasis, a lull…waiting for the right timing, to embrace our next…whatever that is?

mothersuf

PHYSICALLY: Since yesterday I have been very affected by the huge solar flares. At first I was unsure why I suddenly felt so ill – I am sure sensitive, but this had hit me very suddenly. Cold, aching, headaches, heavy, depleted and severe fatigue. I am stronger today, but still feeling the effects and not ‘myself’ yet…You?

INSIGHTS: This is a time of great hope an also a time of great sorrow, we have travelled our path through valleys and peaks and for now we must become acutely ware and follow our hearts…

‘The song of the voice is sweet, But the Song of the Heart


Is the pure voice of Heaven.’

THE COLLECTIVE: We are being tested more now that ever…we need to find the center of our Truth and we must expand our faith. Our spiritual evolutionary process is just that…a process.

Accepting where we currently are is a necessary step in our own spiritual evolution…We must first, know and accept where we are before we can move forward.

“We’re the bridge across forever,

arching above the sea,

adventuring for our pleasure,

living mysteries for the fun of it,

choosing disasters triumphs challenges impossible odds,

testing ourselves over and again,

learning love and love and love!”

TODAY: Summer has arrived! How glorious that feels, if only for one day! What a day – what a weekend this will be, both here in Glastonbury and globally. Solar Flares, the Goodwill Full Moon, Great Invocation Day and a hot sunshine day here…Let us pray for humanity as we recite The Great Invocation…let us stir hearts and minds today! Let us each anchor Divine Love directly into the Heart of the Earth…

ONE WORD: Change

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Lady Moon (essence) Blue

HOW I FEEL: “Periodically in history the ground of man’s mind is plowed under, 

everything apparently uprooted into uncertainty. 

How else shall the old habits of thought be broken up

to clear the way for a new epoch?” 

Joseph Sadony

LADYMOON:the-sif-moonlight

Sigh…I and many others, have spoken often of Divine Timing, of our life paths, where we find ourselves, the changing, the moving, working at releasing and letting go of the past and what is truly over.
To me, it feels as if we really and truly are preparing for a massive new chapter! I sense a new aligned with the Divine Plan…Yet, it also feels like a time of waiting…to allow humanity time to catch its breath, as we settle into and accept where we are going to…

PHYSICALLY: Stronger, energised yet tired.

INSIGHTS: This ‘message’ came to me: “The Bridge shows YOU how to live your truth, to stop hiding from what matters, what you care about, what you love, what you long for, what lights your fire, what is you, and know who are you…Your old fear of being exposed…your fear of letting ‘them’ go.
Trust and learn to feel the support with this movement forward…this ‘crossing…’Its time…time to cross the bridge into tomorrow with no regrets, owning all that you secretly hide about who you are…Let yourself shine true!”

“You will begin to exude Light, as you begin embrace and accept YOURSELF then rung by rung, climb over and up to your rightful place as Queen/King of your road. Suddenly it no longer feels like a bridge too far…”

THE COLLECTIVE: We are all beginning again, moving to new places, new relationships, leaving the old behind…Its done! We are ready for whatever it is we are designed for…it was all arranged so very long ago…………….
