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


“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.

“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.

“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…


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



Unsheltered, wet, changeable, milder, strong winds

WORD: Exposed
COLOUR: Hazy pink



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.



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.


“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!


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.

AFFIRMATION: “I am safe…”


The Links Between Us…


‘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.’ 

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!


IN ONE WORD: Endurance!


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.


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…

“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.

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…


AFFIRMATION: “ I AM happy, healthy and well…All is well in my world…”


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.


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.


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.’


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…’

Michael Harrington

AFFIRMATION: “I am grateful for all that I have and all that I AM…”

The Such-ness of Life…


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.

Emmet Fox

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…



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…



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

in our place and time,

is in balance with everything else.’

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.



“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


‘There are many good, decent and deeply spiritual people out there, praying for this ‘sudden death’ of the old…But Mother Earth and the Divine Mind are in no hurry…I believe in Divine Timing and feel that All That Is, knows exactly what’s coming  next…’ We need to settle down, surrender to all that is new, all that is coming and bless this time we have here on Earth. 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!


AFFIRMATION: “I AM powerful, loving and unafraid…”

Memories of Life…


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


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…


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?


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.

Caroline Myss



Silence is an Ocean…

Speech a river.


As long as you feel that you are in chains…you are…The Eagle is flying, and so are you…it was an illusion all along, that feeling of not being free…’ Diane


AFFIRMATION: “I am free!”

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.


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…


“Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity,

we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then,

for a second time in the history of the world,
man will have discovered fire.” 

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

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…


AFFIRMATION: “I am safe”

“Our Voices…

They are portals for prayer

They are portals for expression

They are portals for devotion

They are portals for intentions

They are portals for healing

They are portals for celebration, play, and creativity

Singing, chanting, toning changes our consciousness,

Changes our mood

Changes our frequency”

Miranda Rondeau
