This Too Shall Pass…understanding the journey

The storm will soon be passing and new buds will decorate the tree.
Much fruit will appear before your eyes!
Enough for both the eagle and the dove…

HOW I FEEL: I woke early to a silent day, low misty clouds covered the sky, I felt the icy air around my face…I snuggled into my fluffy white gown. I felt reverence and love in my heart…

It has been a challenging month, but since my Birthday yesterday, I feel as if I have stepped right into a new phase. I feel wiser, strengthened and courageous!

PHYSICALLY: Adjusting moment by moment. Tired yet stronger.

INSIGHTS:

In the awakening dawn,

the breezes flow through ancient shards of right and wrong

to speak to your heart…

With every ‘crumbling’ or low point in life, we remerge strengthened, wiser, and almost refreshed. We can all learn to trust that we will manage these days, when they over take us. Allow yourself be laid bare, allow yourself to ‘fall apart’ so that you can fall back together again, when you feel ready…Once you are able to come through that, you will feel and understand where you are and who you are becoming…

Don’t search for answers. Be patient with your self and your life. There are unresolved issues of the heart, but this is not the day or the time. Love and accept where you are. The storm will soon be passing.

THE COLLECTIVE:

“I am contemplating the crumbling that comes into every life,

the kind of falling apart that happens

when the ice thaws and the rivers flow and new life emerges.”

Awakening is happening…and new awareness. Bringing forth grace and surrender, with a deep inner knowing of who you are and how you are and where you are. Reverence, forgiveness, love, compassion and true understanding, arrive suddenly, with Grace. Do we finally understand that all the trivia is but that? I feel as if I am receiving the gift of grace with a new understanding of a much more complex picture…that there IS a bigger plan. I bow to Acceptance.

Look at The World – Look at Your Life!

“The breezes at dawn have secrets to tell you
Don’t go back to sleep!
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep!
People are going back and forth
across the doorsill where the two worlds touch,
The door is round and open
Don’t go back to sleep!”
Rumi

TODAY: Bright, warm, crisp, alive…

IN ONE WORD: Sacrifice

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Coral-Coral

HOW I FEEL: Unsettled, yet happy and appreciative…Insights kept coming, going deeper and deeper. Going through layer upon layer of new understanding, healing and the strengthening…light shining thru…

INSIGHTS: “You cannot make anything happen while you are in this process of transformation. So, you must relax as best you can.” 
‘We can’t escape daily challenges and bouts of negativity. If we always try to escape we create deeper levels of denial and suppression – we continue to carry the ‘problem’ with us. Ironically, it is our lack of acceptance and resistance to any new perspectives that the ‘problem’ begins to create pain…

Resistance builds up an ‘energy wall’ or block, that if not discharged, remains in the body. These blocks identify places where we do not accept or love ourselves enough. For our health, we must work through what we seek to avoid. How do we do this? We can slowly focus on loving those parts of ourselves, that we don’t always like or approve of. We must forgive.

Embrace the lessons that you are being invited to learn through, and see it all as a new challenge presented to you. We can also examine our beliefs and seek to see different perspectives and realise that there is a much bigger picture! Allow your perspectives widen and expand, then more of life will make sense and deeper meaning will open to you.’

THE COLLECTIVE: “Pay the thunder no mind – listen to the birds.” 

Masking, ignoring, fragmented, running back to keep the ‘old’ and familiar in sight. Fear, confusion, fatigue.

Look at the world and look at your life! We each need to make sacrifices; starting with small and then larger compromises – which should lead us all back to balance; as a human, as a society, as a global community.

AFFIRMATION: “I am enough…”

“Most of our obstacles would melt away if, instead of cowering before them,

we should make up our minds to walk boldly through them.”
