Let Your Life Dance…

You do not have to be good.


You do not have to walk on your knees


for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.


You only have to let the soft animal of your body


love what it loves…

Mary Oliver

TODAY:
“Go forth and let your Light shine brightly.

Great moments are arising from this.”

Ashtara

Bright, sunny, warm, smiling…

I had a soft gracious waking today, to a glorious blue sky and warm sunshine. Bringing forth an unconscious gentle surrender. I feel reverence.

As I gazed out the window watching a variety of fledglings feed, I understood that all ‘the trivia’ out there is but that – knowing that there is always a better way forward – finally, acceptance.

ONE WORD: Freedom

COLOUR: Rose – Orange

I FEEL:

Relieved, happy, appreciative, accepting, resting, allowing. A need for long hours of sleep, with delicious dreams, to integrate the constant levels of change. I am beginning to have many ideas, thoughts and insights. As my perspectives widen and grow, life makes more and more sense.

PHYSICALLY:

Stronger today, after a few days of throat, glands and headaches, yet, aware of so much going on around me. Bringing new feelings and altered energy. Feeling more mellow as I adjust. Legs restless at night, feverish and heady.

INSIGHTS:

“Let your life lightly dance on the edges of time, like dew on the tip of a leaf.” 

Rabindranath Tagore

The many ‘happenings’ (on many levels) that have taken place globally this year…are too numerous to mention.
As we refocus and begin this month, let us all breath a clear breath and try to understand more clearly who we are and where we are going. Lets all make sure that we continue to shine light on everything around us and keep moving steadily forward. No matter what!

Many appear to be living with eyes wide shut, hearts fluttering, senses restricted, emotions bursting…

‘During times of spiritual transformation along with earth evolutionary process – our identity and focus changes quickly and unexpectedly. Working through such quantum leaps in identity, needs a great deal of awareness and personal mastery – these changes can cause feelings of lost identity. This can be emotionally and mentally disconcerting, if we are not firmly grounded in a strong sense of our overall self and our spiritual purpose.’ Unknown

THE COLLECTIVE:

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

Pushing and pulling. We are all doing our level best to awaken ourselves to a more realistic view of life on earth. Hearts are filled with love, yet so often we may be misunderstood or misunderstanding. Seek the whole picture and seek truth. Dig for it and pace yourself.

‘So do not let a weary body and a perhaps somewhat befuddled mind hold you back more than necessary.’

Aisha North

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.’

Come Forth Into the Light…

TODAY:

“Come forth into the light of things,
let nature be your teacher”  
William Wordsworth

There was a sense of calm and stillness this morning…The world was easing its way back to a familiar routine. The sky was clear and blue, the air icy. The day unfolded like a safe soft bubble, whilst life out there, continued in a myriad of different directions…

ONE WORD: Awaken

COLOUR: White

HOW I FEEL:
“What can I do with my happiness?
How can I keep it, conceal it,
bury it where I may never lose it?
I want to kneel as it falls over me like rain,
gather it up with lace and silk,
and press it over myself again.”
Anais Nin

It was a festive Easter Saturday in Glastonbury. The Town filled to capacity wth visitors…Yet beneath that festive air, I sensed a complex intense energy running parallel with that.

Today, I feel uplifted, faith restored! This Easter I felt the need to focus on each day. I had a deep desire to go deeper into the meaning of Easter…Yesterday morning, as I sat before my Altar, tears filled my eyes, appropriate words were unimportant, there was an understanding and I felt a new level of deep within.

During a ‘waking dream’ I had a powerful experience: ’The Cross’ – I saw a three dimensional cross – past, present and future self – the thin line in the centre separating us from crossing over the ‘Bridge of Time’ to a new time. Many levels and layers of life were shown to me, how we are trying to balance or restructure our world, to bring ‘us’ back together in peace and love.

How ever you spent your Easter time, I hope that you took a moment to think about what it represents for you, adding to that, what it is you wish to ‘birth’ for your own life…

INSIGHTS:
You are every image, yet I am Homesick for You.
Rumi

Its a good time to enjoy your life, to do things that nourish and enrich you. Take time out from trying to understand or to fix your life…Visit places that feeds your heart and soul, do things you have been longing for but have put on hold…what ever that may be. I love music, the opera, museums, a massage, reading good books, sitting quietly close to water, walking amongst trees, eating ice-cream…whatever it is for you, do it! Nourish heart and soul.

THE COLLECTIVE:

Lets all breath in and then let it go – let us shed the way we have been living – as a grind, an all too familiar routine – its good to re-adjust things at this time of renewal. There is a need for us all to incorporate harmony into our days, as the world wobbles all around us…

Love’s Beautiful Eternal Story

Walking alone
Out well beyond the city noise
I kneel on Your sweet, Sacred Ground
A gentle worshipper no one can see
And in this magnificent Here
Your infinite Cathedral
The latticework and webwork of Life
Wraps around me like Vines of Light
And my aching heart breaks apart
Oh, this utter Beauty!
Far too much for one mortal Soul to feel and see
And all the shimmering Stars
Whispering their sweet Songs in Unison
Whirling their luminous Voices out into the darkness
Like me, all of them
Feeling this magical moment
Every life ever lived
Every song ever sung
Every world ever born
Snuggled up against each other Here
Listening, breathless
Like one heart beating, beating, beating
Like the only Treasure ever
Was this, Love’s beautiful eternal Story.

Meanwhile, The World Goes On…

THE DAY:
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
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

“Rain rain go away come again another day…”
I woke to another wet cold wintery day. I snuggled down and slept some more…
Dark, wet, waiting, unsettled, replenishing energies.
Deep slumber, as if everything is still deep in Winter mode.

WORD: Imagination

COLOUR: Gold

FEELINGS:
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Mary Oliver

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 whats next…’

We mere mortals, need to surrender to whatever unfolds, holding ourselves accountable for our own lives, how we honour life here on this Earth, as well as honouring all of humanity, ourselves, and those close to us.

PHYSICALLY:
We are all tired. Really, we are. It’s a hard road, but it’s also a beautiful one.
Perhaps we expect too much from ourselves and from others.
Perhaps humanity can only make slow progress, like an inch worm.

Perhaps we need to celebrate how far we have come more often.

And rest more. And relish the simple pleasures.
And look for love everywhere.
Jeff Brown

INSIGHTS:
‘There are many energies around you in your daily lives,

enticing you to meet them and reinterpret your basic beliefs about reality.

Those who carry light are becoming very empowered,

and in a few years you will be amazed at the force of these people…for they are you!’
-Channeled by Barbara Marciniak

As we travel this Sacred Path, do not look back because the old will not serve you now. It is a time of ‘new-ness’ and great Light. A time of gold and expansive light. We must begin to believe in ourselves and the path we have chosen. It is time to understand the true meaning of kindness. We need to be kind to ourselves first, and find ways of supporting others who are confused and uncertain.

COLLECTIVE:

‘Growing and awakening over and over like the tides…’

As we look around at the great world, the outward signs are that of chaos, but all the old must break away before we can begin to rebuild’. This was known even in ancient times.
The balance of power will be restored, negative and positive will finally align on planet Earth! I do believe this.
We as individuals need to make a conscious effort – to support this massive purging, clearing and ultimately, a re-birth.
Each one of us is forming circles, your thoughts, words and information is flowing round and beyond that circle…
All that is transpiring now on this planet, is the collapse of all that is false, and all that does not serve.

Look around you, really look! There is  hope for the hopeless and strength for the weak.

“The power of love, born of Heaven, rains down on those who continue to believe in the magnificent power of a pure heart and a loving landscape – let us all, as One, trust that a New Earth is being created by our love.”

“We need to make deep and profound changes in the way we live,

if we want future generations to inherit from us a viable planet.”

New Possibilities…

ink-trees

“I know you want to question everything, but sometimes it pays to just have a little faith.” 
Lauren Kate, Torment

TODAY:

Undercurrents, changeable, icy, unhurried, broody. Today began silently, calmly with an early morning coldness, that quickly seeped into my bones…Coffee came first.

tamarack-tree

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

Teilhard de Chardin

All too soon my day was disrupted by the sound of heavy machinery and electric saws. A nearby neighbour had chosen to cut down four ancient Fir trees. I had always acknowledged these four old trees as powerful protectors, that acted as buffers against strong winds. To me they were sacred, holding ancient space as they stood tall and strong on consecrated ground.

As they were being cut down, my heart was aching…my body quivering…I lit a candle and offered a prayer to our Earth Mother and the Trees. This thoughtless act of removing these great old trees, which was also the home and shelter for a variety of birds, as well as resting flocks of Starlings during cold winter days and nights.

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 may have made. You cannot avoid this shake-up because you have called for it. Bobbie K

I know that right now few of us recognise the outside world. And over the next several months, it may not look or sound anything like you imagined it to be. Its not what you dreamed. Its not what you imagined.
Let me tell you that your dream will come – but for now accept that our world is dismantling the old system and all that it carried.

Any signs of fear, discord, even violence, need to be seen as part of a huge cleansing. I see life on Earth with its complex agenda, often so intricate, that the human mind fails to grasp what is happening.
We need to trust and know that on some deep soul level we understand, we are safe…

Surrender…

blog21414_748779180_n

“This moment now has the potential to be the deepest experience of truth and love and awakening. 
Ever. 
Only one breath away…not even.” 

Chameli Ardagh

TODAY:

Quiet, softening, damp, multi-coloured leaves, wet earth, hungry birds, greedy squirrel, hot coffee and smiles…gratitude always…

“I must be overtired’, Buttercup managed. ‘The excitement and all.

‘
’Rest then’, her mother cautioned.

‘Terrible things can happen when you’re overtired.

William Goldman, The Princess Bride

IN ONE WORD: Surrender…

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Royal Blue

HOW I FEEL:
“Things change.
And friends leave.
Life doesn’t stop for anybody.”
Stephen Chbosky

The complexities of life continue to interest me, often baffle me, astound and amaze me. Yet, there is a part of me that understands it all…
In the grand scheme of things, in the world of business, or life day to day, much is changing rapidly…and it might feel too fast, too daunting, too uncertain, and unsettling at times. But know that all is well.

10406609_749920155044314_6801696493261366657_n

PHYSICALLY: Finding a place of harmony and balance after a turbulent few weeks. Finally a full nights sleep!

INSIGHTS:

“Surrender is not giving up or saying that everything is perfectly okay;

it is the willingness to let yourself energetically off the hook

of trying to control the outcome.”
Shannon Kaiser

Here is something I wrote a long while ago. It seems more appropriate for now:

“We will have the desire to perhaps judge, and panic as our own personal world has its foundations shaken well and truly. That will be the exact moment when you need to be ready, to step up to the plate knowing that change was coming, and know that some time in the future, all will be ok. It is the very time to support others too, with a kind word, a cup of tea, even the offer of a meal or simply to calm.

It will not be the time to panic, to fear or complain and rant…We must expect anything and be prepared to handle it with our hearts wide open and truth and integrity intact.

blog41_n

Banks may change or even fail, money could disappear, heating or water may be in short supply, there may be many demonstrations and other events that are too numerous to mention.

Stay home, bake bread or a cake (if you don’t know how, learn), close the curtains, sit quietly in your own home and just ‘be.’ Allow it all. If you have to leave your home for a time, be prepared for that too.“

Everything you have been and all that you are about to become – is ready to ‘re-birth’ into this new paradigm before us, around us, in us. We are all about to learn to play a new ‘game’ in a completely new world.

THE COLLECTIVE:

‘Suffering arises when we cling to that which is changing’.

I know that so much is changing, I an constantly aware of this. I ponder, I wonder…Yes, these are extraordinary times we are living in! What mysteries still to discover? And what will seem like miracles? There are hidden truths too that will unfold very soon.

The Earth is aligning in a different way, (some of us were aware before the 11:11 Gateway, allowing for the influx of new energies to be released). And still many of ‘the collective’ who are awake and aware, cling to their past, like reeds on a river bank as they flow swiftly by…let go…surrender, float, allow, feel safe as you remain in the present moment!

Never Give Up…A Poem

11986535_10200939315161612_7221879607961230391_n

I cried out to the wind,
the wind answered ‘fight!’
I shouted to the rain,
the rain answered ‘stand up!’
I pled with my heart,
 my heart said ‘forgive!’

I argued with my soul,
 my soul insisted ‘keep giving!’

I doubted my mind,
 my mind said ‘question!’

I fought with my tongue,
 my tongue replied ‘first listen!’

I wanted to give up,
 my breath demanded ‘keep walking!’

Eric Cockrell
