Springtime Is Awakening…

 

10615628_10156588705450580_2844426418371448196_n

“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.”

Every Experience is DIVINE…

10413402_644499985656577_5103288772443134617_n

“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find

reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts.

There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature…

the assurance that dawn comes after night,

and spring after winter.” 


Rachel Carson

TODAY: Warm and summery, yet there is a definite ethereal feel to this day. Its hazy and unclear. A definite stillness is with us in Glastonbury today. With the feel of Summer and the smell of fresh herbs wafting through my kitchen door – mint, basil, rosemary, thyme, bay…I feel blessed.

IN ONE WORD: Awe

COLOUR OF THE DAY: GREEN and Summery…

HOW I FEEL:

“My heart was trembling with an emotion that embraced everything in the World”

Teilhard de Chardin

abbey kitchen:img10198

The Solstice energies were powerful in Glastonbury. As yet, I am unable to put into words my own deeper experience of it. I feel abundant, blessed and rich in so many ways…I felt a tangible shift, a softness too, and love…I feel deep inside a new joy, truly happy to be alive and living on this sweet Earth!

With the arrival of many people to the Town, over the past week, on their way to the Glastonbury Festival, I was aware of a discord in the Town for 2-3 days. With the Festival now underway, we can breath deeply and resettle.

On a personal level, I feel as if I have come through an intensified (and physically challenging), few days since the Solstice. It feels as if I have lived through several months of ‘happenings…’ As of now, I can take all the time I need to rest and resettle.

SQUIRREL:11041937_839896942713795_896837002842347209_o

PHYSICALLY: Weak and wobbly…Yet elated and happy!

INSIGHTS:

“Part of doing something is listening.

We are listening.

To the sun.

To the stars.

To the wind.” 


Madeleine L’Engle

Look around you…What do you see?
What are you thinking, how do you feel, what do you know or understand?
What can I tell you that is new?

At times you may feel like a bucket with holes in it…
Your Divinity seems to leak through you and out. You wonder what happened? You feel ‘off kilter’, unsure, perhaps a little unworthy by refusing to see, to know, to own the fact that you are a spark of the Divine…There is nothing to fear, if you allow yourself to drop into ‘ALL that you are’, you will instantly feel safe and loved. Your Soul Seed is indestructible…

THE COLLECTIVE:

“Every Divine Experience of your life has brought you to this place, where you find yourself.”

Ashtara

We are all doing the very best we can at this point in time, with what we know…with many more beginning to understand…
Allow yourself to come back to yourself – in a way that allows for a deeper sense of self a deeper inner connection…with a new depth of feeling…an inner calm…allowing in a reverent softness…that fills that gap of emptiness, without action.

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.


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…

1392213_f0963921

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,

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.

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

‘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!

Summer Solstice…

summer_solstice

“Today you know that there is not enough time 

because today you realise you want to live this life forever
and that makes today one of those big days…”
Issy

TODAY: Bright, clear, sunshine and movement…

IN ONE WORD: Exhilerated!

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Golden light of the Sun – with Silver, Gold and Blue rays around the Tor…

HOW I FEEL: A magnificent and magical day! Since yesterday the energy here was felt quite profound. I feel blessed!

BODY: Sensitive and slightly tired now…

INSIGHTS: The SOLSTICE (21st) brings a new movement as well as new tectonic plate re-alignments. These alignments may become many, but will be of a lessor power and in a gentler time release patterning…there is a symmetry at play in accordance with the Ascension of earth.

THE COLLECTIVE: The SOLSTICE is a Gateway. And once these have opened you will begin to move in a slightly different direction…as will many who are on the same wave-length as you are…You will begin to have a full acceptance of your part(nership) in the next step of the Earths evolution.

Be in peace my friends.

Druids Celebrate The Summer Solstice At Stonehenge

Find the golden thread
that weaves the coarse,
the old, the new;
Into that shining whole
that is so uniquely you.

“It was June, and the world smelled of roses.
The sunshine was like powdered gold over the grassy hillside.”

Maud Hart Lovelace

TODAY: Sun shining. A warm aromatic breeze. The quietude of Sundays…serenading birdsong fills me ears. Bliss.

ONE WORD: Rebirth

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Brightest Green

HOW I FEEL: Serenity of mind…brings a touch of gladness to my day…my heart is full.

baby deer:fauns:_n

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think,

all the walks I want to take,

all the books I want to read,

and all the friends I want to see…

INSIGHTS: Promise Yourself …To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of ‘trouble’.”

THE COLLECTIVE: “You can’t fix yourself by going somewhere else, he’d said. You’ll always take yourself along.”

The Sun Has Risen Once Again…

RAIN:MAGIC LIGHT:9101_n

“I am afraid too, like all my fellow men,

of the future too heavy with mystery and too wholly new,

towards which Time is driving me…

Then like these men,

I wonder where life is leading me…”

Pierre de Chardin

TODAY: Warm, joyous, blue sky, humid, happy and bright! (Yes, I see its suddenly raining huge drops!)

IN ONE WORD: Wonder

COLOUR OF THE DAY: I see a splash of SUMMER colours before my eyes…

HOW I FEEL: “I will only move as quickly as the slowest part of me can go.” Ah, the shifts, changes, ideas, creations! Ecstatic moments when insights flow. Messages, nudges and revelations.

PHYSICALLY: Days of intense energies all around me and in me, downloads, then depletion…and then I rise and begin again…

1610020_656854434362631_406214139631339742_n

INSIGHTS: And then – we are straddling two worlds, this rapidly evolving one and the ‘old’ one that is familiar in all its forms. But as we hang on to it, dragging parts of it along with us, finding ‘the way’ tough, because of those we may be bringing with us…are resisting, fighting, ignoring or challenge our deep desire to move forward – to be more…

Some days we can see it! We even feel it, and we live it! Other days we feel weak, battle weary, even afraid… Only to rewaken on a new day filled with hope and our dreams intact …

THE COLLECTIVE: When you wake up tomorrow, take time to notice how many things are running smoothly, how many small miracles compose your day. As you take in your world, you might feel a moment of Gratitude for the basic fact that, once again, the sun has risen to illuminate the abundant Earth, and the earth’s gravitational field holds you – and all that you hold dear, in a tight, life-affirming embrace….

AFFIRMATION: “Joy and happiness are mine…”

1506892_755221624511082_3393198910136676362_n

who then are you?
and who am i?
if not more than stars,
and something less than snowflakes…

the breath of a god,
who chooses to be unnamed.
the croak of a frog,
the moan of a dying branch…

Walking On Sunshine…

Beautiful-Sunny-Day-stock4504-large

“No matter how dark the night…

somehow the sun rises once again

and all shadows are chased away…”

TODAY: Glorious clear blue sky! A bright clear sunny day!

ONE WORD: Bliss

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Sunshine Yellow

HOW I FEEL: Walking on sunshine! Part of unconditional love is treating every single person and creature who comes into our lives as if they matter. In fact, flowers, plants, cars, kettles and all material objects respond to love and appreciation. I Bless most things as I go about my day…

3840x2400

PHYSICALLY: Calm, quiet, at peace, a sense of deep gratitude fills me today.

INSIGHTS: We stand in such a Sacred and power-filled time as the cycle of life continues…
An open landscape awaits us as we step into the new…The rest of this year offer the opportunity to uniquely express ourselves. This time on Earth is a tremendous gift! It offers endless possibilities! A blank canvas, prepared for every new creation.

Summer_Wild_Flowers_-_geograph.org.uk_-_460933

THE COLLECTIVE: For some of us, a long winter is finally OVER!
Throw out the tired drab jumpers, jackets, sox, tights, belts, boots, bags, and any other ‘tired’ looking items! Rid your home of the clutter, papers, books, magazines, odd crockery, cutlery and more. Start your Summer fresh, energised, colourful, refreshed and re-newed!

AFFIRMATION: “I AM Loving and Loveable…”

“Anyone who is not aware of the radical movement on the planet.

Be it the environment, politics or spiritually.
Is very out of touch,

or fearfully hiding within an ‘old planet mentality…”
