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…”

Springtime Is Awakening…

“And the endlessly long winter had at last turned to Spring.
From life to death and back again to life.
It was indeed the greatest magic in the world.”

Spring is a magical time of year during which nature uses vibrant colours to signal the coming of longer, brighter and warmer days ahead. It is also a wonderful time to meet new people, catch up with friends, plan holidays in the sun, and see if perhaps something even more than beautiful spring flowers, might begin to blossom. Lets go full steam ahead into Summer!

“Here, also, the future was cried aloud by the wind through the rocks, so that all those who heard would shiver

and then the liquid spring song of the thrush, would make all the beauty of moonlight and sunlight blend together

making it true, so true, that happiness must come again” 

Elyne Mitchell

“She turned to the sunlight…And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbor:
    “Winter is dead.”

John Burroughs

Hello…

There is no doubt that we are the Pioneers of a new time on Earth. No matter where you find yourself right now, or what your past has been…

Open your vision and purpose via your wisdom self and move forward with concentration of will. Expand your capacity to love, be tender, be compassion, tolerant and fearless. Observe yourself and others, we are not the same Beings anymore. I know I am not!

FlowerMuse-Peonies-FS

We have been inching towards the doorway to the ‘next’ world for so long, that many have been tempted to give up. I want to extend my deepest love and blessings to all of you, who have had the courage to continue this journey. It has been a few extraordinary years, filled with unexpected and rapid changes…Let us all appreciate life more than we have done recently, and acknowledge how well we have all done, to get to this place!

My intention in continuing to write is and always has been – to support you, to make the path lighter, with many reminders as well as other information…to make life flow with a deeper understanding and less fear. Especially for YOU, where ever you are on your path of life, I wish you a continued path of unfolding understanding and love.

Blessings, Ashtara xox💓

The Game of Life…

“Mother Earth and the Divine Mind are in no hurry…
I believe in Divine Timing

I understand that ‘All That Is’

Knows exactly what’s next…”
Ashtara

FLOWER CHORUS

O such a commotion under the ground,


When March called: “Ho! There! ho!


“Such spreading of rootlets far and wide


Such whisperings to and fro!”


Are you ready?” the Snowdrop asked,”


‘Tis time to start, you know.”


“Almost, my dear!” the Scilla replied,


“I’ll follow as soon as you go.


“Then “Ha! ha! ha!” the chorus came


Of laughter sweet and low,


From millions of flowers under the ground,


Yes, millions beginning to grow.


“I’ll promise my blossoms, the crocus said,


“When I hear the black bird sing.
“

And straight thereafter the Narcissus cried,


My silver and gold I’ll bring.”


“And ere they are dulled,” another spoke,


“The Hyacinth bells shall ring.

”
But the violet only murmured,

“I’m here,”


And sweet grew the air of Spring.


O the pretty brave things, thro’ the coldest days


Imprisoned in walls of brown,


They never lost heart tho’ the blast shrieked loud,


And the sleet and the hail came down;


But patiently each wrought her wonderful dress


Or fashioned her beautiful crown,


And now they are coming to lighten the world


Still shadowed by winter’s frown.


And well may they cheerly laugh “Ha! ah!”


In laughter sweet and low,


The millions of flowers under the ground,


Yes, millions beginning to grow.

TODAY: I woke to a surprisingly cold and dark day…I shivered as I felt the cold air…

IN ONE WORD: Live!

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Rainbows!

HOW I FEEL: Yes, I was cold. I did my ‘wake-up’ exercises, looked out the window and up at the sky…My little pots of Daffodils were in full bloom, the birds were skipping from feeder to feeder, the air though moist, was fresh and new! I realised with certainty that hibernation was coming to an end! The world was beginning to wake up all around me and I felt it! I was instantly clear, awake, alive with a sense of joy and wonder…I needed strong hot strong coffee! I dressed hurriedly and dashed down the stairs. This was going be a good day!

INSIGHTS:

“Things change.

And friends leave.

Life doesn’t stop for anybody.”

Stephen Chbosky

Yes, there are many good, decent and deeply spiritual people out there, praying for the ‘sudden death’ of the ‘old…’ I know this. But Mother Earth and the Divine Mind are in no hurry…I believe in Divine Timing and trust ‘All That Is’ knows exactly what’s next.

Us mere mortals, need to surrender to whatever unfolds, allowing life to flow, to float, yet being honest and accountable for our lives; the way we honour life here on this sweet Earth, as well as honouring all of humanity, ourselves and those close to us.

BLOG:24:7:14:White-Hot-Summer

THE COLLECTIVE: Lets all decide to settle down. To surrender to all that life offers us right now, all that is changing, all that is yet to be…Bless this time we have here on Earth! We are key players in a game that we chose to explore and live through. So, what’s the rush…enjoy this time, its a monumental event.

AFFIRMATION: “I embrace life and all its experiences!”

CHAKRA SET 1

The world you desire can be won.

It exists…it is real… it is possible…it’s yours.”
