We Are the World…

MAGDALENE:PIC:7032aff33125b7fea39a4fc67763b82f

“This is why it hurts the way it hurts.

You have too many words in your head.

There are too many ways to describe the way you feel.

You will never have the luxury of a dull ache.

You must suffer through the intricacy of feeling too much.”
— I Wrote This for You

TODAY:

By 7am, I had fed all the birds that visit here daily, watered all my plants, and enjoyed the cool morning air. Its Sunday, and there was not a sound in the town…not even a car.

Yes, we have had blisteringly hot weather over the past days…Its years since I was in such heat! Nothing like this ever before in the SW! The humidity has made it almost impossible to sleep. I have been getting up at about 3am, feeling too hot, sitting at an open window until dawn. And then taking short naps through the day…

ONE WORD: Adjustments

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Crimson

HOW I FEEL:

Politics and ‘happenings’ are fast moving…as we all continue walking on egg shells…wondering what next. We as individuals, can change little on the surface…as we watch and wait…

The past 2 weeks have been tough for many of us. On all levels!
I can feel and sense just how much is going on – on a myriad of levels and layers. And of course the world events only highlight for us the inner chaos we all still hold…and reflect…

Now, lets hold the fort, stay sane, do our level best to be good citizens, walk tall and exude as much love and higher energy as we can muster…And so it is…

Then this week; as I sat in the serene bliss of the Chalice Well Gardens – with people all around me, who were as appreciative of Nature and that sacred space, it was wonderful to be there again – and to realise that I was part of that world…it felt perfect!

PHYSICALLY: One day at a time…

INSIGHTS:
“The only way to gain power in a world that is moving too fast is to learn to slow down. And the only way to spread one’s influence wide is to learn to go deep.
The world we want for  ourselves and for our children will not emerge from electronic speed but rather from a Spiritual stillness that takes root in our Souls.
Then, and only then, will we create a world that reflects the heart instead of shattering it.” 


Marianne Williamson

Everyone is either soaring or sinking. To those who are soaring, well done! I understand that you are working through some intense issues right now. If you are one of those who feel as if you are sinking, don’t be afraid.

Step back, stop, wait and listen. What you will find is that you are struggling against the very things that you want to release or let go of. And most likely for reasons that are not even your own truth.

THE COLLECTIVE:

There is much fear with the economy and how things will work out, but Dear Ones, don’t worry! If you feel worried then let the feeling of worry come and let the feeling of worry go…

For the next few months you will be challenged; to step out of a fear based reality and step into a love based reality – will not be easy.

The secret is to stay present, know that everything is okay in the moment, for there is a collapse coming in the way business is done and ethics are being put in place, so that it becomes a fairer and more honest world…

Sunday…Reflecting on Life and Simple Happiness

1c0f2e9f31c28eef139c01b4cbe7ec50

“Look at the trees, look at the birds, look at the clouds, look at the stars… and if you have eyes you will be able to see that the whole existence is joyful. Everything is simply happy.

Trees are happy for no reason; they are not going to become prime ministers or presidents and they are not going to become rich and they will never have any bank balance. Look at the flowers – for no reason. It is simply unbelievable how happy flowers are.”

Osho

TODAY: Lazy, sheltered, nestling in for the day – its cold out there – wild winds whistling, feeling serene, harmony within.

ONE WORD: Harmony

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Crimson

HOW I FEEL:

‘Grace is ever Present. All that Is necessary is that you Surrender to It’

Ramana Maharshi

“Its ok, this Life – it’s actually as perfect as it can be…Not always easy, not always kind, but there is a sense in me now; I know that this journey is meant to take me somewhere that I want to go…today, tomorrow and for as long as I AM here” Ashtara

Evolution and all hopes for a better world, rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.”

John Lennon

Sunday is the perfect day to spend quality time with those you love and care about, or perhaps take ‘alone time’ to walk, to sit, allowing yourself to day dream, to write and to think. You may sleep-in and nap later…

Whilst you reflect on your own life…Your hopes and dreams, your goals and desires…your weaknesses and strengths and where you find yourself today, on your path of Life. Embrace this day with your heart…

THE COLLECTIVE: “The ability to be so alone here, to be safe and alone, to be able to do what ever one desires on any given day…To become engulfed by intense energies and the ‘fall out’ of that, personally and collectively…what an experience! What a journey, what an honour and a rich intense learning in every possible way.” Ashtara

Thank the Stars…

“I’m still thanking all the Stars, one by one.” Marissa Meyer. 

TODAY: Its a clear crisp morning, but it’s icy cold! The sky is bright and the sun is out and when in the full sun, the heat is delicious! Yet it feels very cold, even indoors with the heating on…I have just added another layer.

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Shades of Winter

Autumn leaves in girl hands, instagram toned

Life seems to be moving forward at an even faster pace, weeks feel like days, weekends gone in the blink of an eye…or is it me? My days are full, insightful, varied and filled with “aha” moments…Each day lived at my own pace, in my own way. I am in a new place in every possible way…the ‘spiritual avalanche’ is over…I AM…What a journey this is, what an honour, with intense learning in every possible moment.

PHYSICALLY: Feeling more settled, stable and whole! You?

INSIGHTS: “Every inner journey begins with the desire to change and to be the best you can be.”
by Robyn Groves

We need to settle down, surrender to all that is new, all that is coming. Bless this time we have here on Earth. We are key players in a game that we chose to explore and live through. Do not rush, there is no need…enjoy this time, each step is a monumental event!

THE COLLECTIVE: “You can change the place you live, your clothes, your interests, your friends, your religion and even your partner. However, if you forgot to change your mind, attitude, beliefs about the world, how you treat people and how you plan to be different this time around, why did you even bother?”

Shannon L Alder

There is nothing I need to add to that…

Old Dreams Fall Away…

10411028_10152600425769530_3115522099972768405_n

The world offers itself to your imagination,


calls to you like the wild geese,

harsh and exciting-
over and over announcing your place


in the family of things.
Mary Oliver

TODAY: Sitting peacefully staring out of the window. I see a heavily clouded winter sky…my little garden, looking tired and forlorn. It’s Sunday. Ah, bliss, hot Coffee as a new day quietly unfolds. What a perfect way to begin the day! My Heart is filled with love and awe.

IN ONE WORD: Transition

COLOUR MY DAY: Luminous Pearl*

luminous pearl dragon:IMG_0870

FEELING: Life, our reason for living feels expansive, ephemeral, complex, delicious, intriguing, sad, intense, and often confusing…

THE COLLECTIVE:

Thunder shakes the roof;
You go back to sleep.
Big thunder comes again;
This time you wake up.

feeding-the-canadian-geese-gregory-perillo

‘Thunder comes and you are jolted into a clear consciousness and are fully awake, so awake and clear that you may find it difficult to trust. You have been disturbed and shaken to the core by certain events and recent difficult decisions that you have made. You cannot avoid this shake-up because you have called for it…’ Bobby Klein

INSIGHTS: Look around you. What do you think, how do you feel, what do you see, know or understand? What can I tell you that is new? At times you will feel like a bucket with holes in it…
Your Divinity seems to leak out. You wonder what happened?

‘At times, answers will come to your questions and your longing will be met. At other times, only more burning, more confusion, with no resolution in sight. Along the ancient path of the heart, old dreams must fall away in order to make room for new forms of love and creativity inside you. Dare to see that nothing has gone wrong.’ Matt Licata
