Movement…

“New Year – a new chapter, new verse, or just the same old story?

Ultimately we write it. The choice is ours.”
Alex Morritt

TODAY:

As I write this Blog, I pause to gaze out of the frosty window – I can almost feel the icy air on my cheeks, a thin layer of pure white ice covers everything outside…Its a very cold day, a day to snuggle up and keep warm…

To me it brings a stillness, a silent calm to all that has taken place over the past weeks and months. Perhaps a time to sit quietly and reflect, or simply to rest a while…before the new year begins in earnest…

ONE WORD: Surrender

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Fiery Orange

HOW I FEEL:
I realised I am not here to change myself, fix myself, improve myself or transform myself.
I am simply here to meet myself, accept myself, love myself and be myself.
Nithya Shanti

Some years just float by with little change, but last year changed me on very deep levels…I underwent several challenging periods of ‘initiation.’
Most were unexpected, some anticipated. At times I was enticed to work with past issues, which propelled me out of my comfort zone…
I understand that change is necessary and all change is a form of initiation.

But, we as mere mortals, need to be true to ourselves whilst we surrender to whatever life brings – holding ourselves accountable for our own lives! I know that I (we?) need to settle down, and accept all that is coming and bless this time I have here on Earth.

Are we not key players in a game that we chose to explore and live through? Well, I intend to take one gentle step at a time into this year, no rush, and to experience each unique and monumental event!

’I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth.’

INSIGHTS:

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

Perhaps now, more than ever before, it makes perfect sense for us to marry the ideas of modern science, the wisdom of ancient spirituality and the regular practice of prayer and meditation to balance our own lives, as we embrace the power this has to change our world!

In the past few months, it has become obvious that we are walking through that ‘mysterious door’, and beginning to cross a bridge into the unknown world, of which we have yet to create.
We have had to re-think about what we knew to be ‘true’, and we have to learn new ways to live in this rapidly shifting world.

‘Movement is the process of the Universe.
So move.
Do something.
Anything.
But do not stand still.
Do not remain ‘on the horns of a dilemma.’
Do not fence sit.

Put your foot down on one side or the other, swing the opposite leg over and start walking.
You’ll know before you take ten steps if you’re going in the right direction.’


d5ee6a608035141727034340502d29eb
THE COLLECTIVE:

‘We have the opportunity to completely reinvent our lives, or to stay stuck in our stagnant old habits and patterns. We can take clear, decisive action to fulfil our Dreams, or we can resign ourselves to the thought that our Dreams are too impractical or too far away to achieve. Anything is possible. Even the impossible is possible!’

Solara

As we refocus and begin 2017, breath a clear breath, and look into your hearts to see how we are feeling.
Understand more clearly – who you are – and make sure that you continue to focus on all that is Light …
Move steadily forward, even if at times, it feels as if you are not moving at all.

2017 = 10 = 1 = The number ‘1’ represents the beginning of a new cycle, new beginnings, embarking on a new journey of learning and growth.
In a universal ‘1’ vibrational month, the beginning of a new universal cycle of 9, it is a time to plant the seeds for the forthcoming cycle.

The foundations you set now in the present, set the foundations for the next cycle.
What are you passionate about?
What are your goals and inner-visions ?

Is it not time now, to go beyond the realm you’ve mastered and become new again?
Fear not the rebirthing, after such a glorious, conscious death. Rejoice!’

HOW I FEEL: ‘Opening our minds to think with our hearts, defines the form that magic can take in our lives…’ Vasumi

During this month I have been in the process of letting go. I have experienced days of feeling vulnerable, yet also strong, nervous yet deeply aware and in my own power, sometimes there was sadness, yet only very briefly…followed by acceptance and understanding.

From all of this, I hope to discover a new rhythm of life, a divine flow, an inner song…As all of this has been taking place, new doorways have opened and new connections are birthing.

bc126939f0032365f7376e81226fcd16

PHYSICALLY: Steady. With periods of wavering energy, followed by rest and restoration. I am having sessions of Acupuncture, and finding this restores my inner harmony very quickly.

INSIGHTS: ‘During times of spiritual transformation along with earth’s evolutionary process – our identity and focus can change quickly and unexpectedly. “

Love is every where and yet we close our eyes, bury our heart and march on…on with what is old, tired, familiar and in many ways, already gone…gone forever! And that is what you most fear.

6d26ba483fa8dc6b27f0c1ddeb0dc3fe

THE COLLECTIVE: ‘This evolution is a necessary condition of all further scientific thought. But, evolution is also psychic, spiritual and sacred…’ Teilhard de Chardin

As the first month of 2016 draws to a close, let us refocus and prepare for a new month…Breath a deep clear breath and look into your heart to see how your are feeling. I understand more clearly who I am and who we are – Let us each make sure that we continue to shine our Light on everything around us and keep moving steadily forward!

‘You think you are alive because you breathe air? 
Shame on you, that you are alive in such a limited way. 
Don’t be without Love, so you won’t feel dead. 
Die in Love and stay alive forever. ‘

Endless Waves of Transformation…

‘One day we will all be gone from this world, and leave only the traces of our love. 
And that love will live inside us forever, the harvest of our lives…’

TODAY:

“What a soft thoughtful time.

In this illusory gloom, like a night-blooming flower,

let your imagination bloom in a riot of colour.”

Vera Nazarian

Dull, icy cold, damp…A perfect day to snuggle down, stay warm…and daydream.

IN ONE WORD: Awareness

COLOUR OF THE DAY: The colours from my gleaming bottles* hugged me with a warm glow…I was drawn to one with a soft Golden hue…

12105940_10153233367223297_5394619054703607231_n

HOW I FEEL:

“You are being re-dreamed and it’s the body’s struggle to hang on that’s creating the side effects. 

Let your self “die”. 

You are being re-dreamed.”

Jann Weiss

Isn’t it interesting how our flaws and brokenness become the raw materials that draw forth our true beauty?

I can think way back on my own life and remember a number of occasions when I felt particularly “broken and flawed” and someone appeared “out of nowhere” offering love, guidance, care and attention; drawing out the beauty and value that was already there.

b3977ce2f86098f45869a16e77dcc326

Each of these experiences were transformational turning points, but the most profound of all these experiences is when we ourselves give ourselves the love, care and attention we need.

When we love and care for ourselves with all of our flaws and fractures, doing the same for others becomes a natural way of living. Love can, and will truly heal the world!

PHYSICALLY:

“Your heart often feels fear and vacillates from being fully open and then over protected…”
I am dealing with cardiac issues…uncomfortable and at times unpleasant. I am doing the very best I can, with this…But I am positive that; This too shall pass…

INSIGHTS:

“At the end of the day, let there be no excuses, no explanations, no regrets.”

Steve Maraboli

The tides have turned. New energies and people are arriving in my life. I feel open and expectant. I see new doorways opening up around me. You?

THE COLLECTIVE:

“The era of the malevolent warrior is coming to a close.

It is time for the Benevolent Warrior,

for the ones who allow the heart to speak its truth.”

Jeff Brown

Spiritual Sacrifice…

BLOG:SACRED EVOLUTION-1:12_n

‘You throb with the pulse of All-That-Is…YOU! 
Listen to your heart! 
It is the heart of everything…you are the world!’

1524846_225683917614132_1335869220_n

DAY:

“I greet you on this most glorious of days,

days of light, dark, wind, water, ice and rain…

followed by change most victorious with re-alignments

of both the planet and her people…”

Icy – unhurried…

WORD: New Beginnings = Transformation

COLOUR: Coral-Coral = Sacrifice**

FEELING: ‘tuned in’

MOOD: Anticipating

BODY: Harmonising

BLOG:6:1:14_n

THE COLLECTIVE:

Fear not the strangeness you feel.

The future must enter you long before it happens.

Just wait for the birth,

for the hour of new clarity.

Rainer Maria Rilke

Pushing and pulling. Awakening to a more realistic view of life on Earth. Hearts filled with love yet often, misunderstanding and misunderstood. Afraid of change, seeking comfort.

BLOG:NEW PARADIGMS:BLOG 18:11_n

INSIGHTS: You each have ‘work’ to do on different levels, therefore never try
to compare yourself with anyone else, or to compete with anyone else,
but give of your own unique gifts in your own unique way.
You are not all of the same mould, you are different.

Realise this, give thanks for it, and then go and use the gifts, which are specifically yours for the benefit of the whole. Judge not what you have to give, JUST GIVE it. Too much time is wasted weighing up the pros and cons. Let your actions be spontaneous, prompted by the freedom of the spirit and not carefully calculated and worked out. Let go, let Soul work through you. A deeper level of communication and change are needed to inspire greater vision.

BLOG:12:1:14_n

“We come together in the spirit of unity to heal wounds that separate us,

to reconcile conflicts that divide us,

to inspire ideas and actions that express our Oneness,

and to join in heart and mind to welcome the birth of our New World.”

This is a Pledge…

b-94259_0

“This is a pledge not to leave any aspect of myself behind, not to over-ride any aspect that needs to pause, or needs an inner story to come to the surface. It could be emotional, mental, spiritual or physical. I will pause and listen.”

TODAY: Soft, quiet, with a new peacefulness. A gentle shift still taking place…cold and softly raining…dark, with strong cleansing winds. Birds hungry and busy.

IN ONE WORD: Loving

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Golden Hues

leuviahelangelprotectordepecadores

HOW I FEEL: It has been a powerful and potent time on Earth these past days. Many ‘happenings’ (on so many levels) have taken place globally and personally in recent weeks, as well as for most of this year…which are too numerous to mention.

Accept and appreciate these experiences, however you have received them. Allow too, the process of letting go, with love. I have experienced many days, when I have felt as if I have been run over by a bus, with a level of exhaustion that is unfamiliar to me…Often, I have felt weak yet in my power, nervous yet accepting, sad but understanding. I know that I am ‘dying to the old’…’I AM becoming’ – more and more of who I truly am, in each and every moment. From all of this, will come a new found rhythm of life, a new cycle, a divine flow…

025fe93106050eeca656c44fd2b8f341

INSIGHTS: Today, stop rushing through your spiritual search. Take a moment to breathe. God is here, right now. You have everything you need. 

Learning to pace yourself, and to slow down in our fast-moving world, will for some, take focus and practice, but if you do take the time to become aware of the deep need to do so, you will surprise yourself with how natural living at a slower pace is for you…

THE COLLECTIVE: You cannot force anything to happen while you are in this process. So, relax as best you can. You are in transition, going towards your greater destiny. When relaxed you are expanding, not constricting, and the divine forces can more easily work through you and with you. Know that transformational forces are working magic in your life in ways you cannot comprehend at this time.

It is very clear that it is time to create a new world for all of us to move into. See and know that we are not the same Beings anymore. I know I am not! We have been inching towards a Doorway to the ‘next world’ for so long, that many of us have wanted to give up…

Chalice of Change…

“Give to me the Golden Chalice I gave thee at the last supper,

so I may place the answer to thy prayer within it.”

Golden-Light-21-1024x709 

DAY: crisp, frosty, cold

WORD: truth

COLOUR: golden

FEELING: alert, gentle yet strengthened, timeless

BODY: stronger, healing, transforming

THE COLLECTIVE: listen to the deeper messages. Be patient. New beginnings await; healing, knowledge and timeless gifts to come…

INSIGHTS: activating codes held deep within our heart, allows our evolution to soar. Our heart is the ‘Chalice of Change’ and ‘letting go.’ We are transforming ourselves on every possible level, and the transition from the ‘old’ to the ‘new’ is a daunting often overwhelming process.

The Fullness of the Journey…

Let me, O let me bathe my soul in colours; let me swallow the sunset and drink the rainbow.  

– Kahlil Gibran

309425_461358150567184_455206676_n

DAY: dark, cold, waiting

WORD: acceptance

COLOUR: diamond white

FEELING: over tired, exhausted. Lack of sleep this night.

BODY: needing more rest, headachy, scratchy eyes and ears.

THE COLLECTIVE:  I get a strong sense that we are shifting in each and every moment! Some days life and what we experience are moving so quickly, that we barely notice what happens around us, but we must! Being present in every moment is paramount to the fullness of our journey, our experiences within that journey, and even in the lives of those around us. Own all your emotions, be touched and inspired, whilst you take one last look at the patterns and habits that need to be shed!

INSIGHTS: Its a good day to do a prayer of Gratitude. Are we too separated from what’s really happening with others?

‘The reason why most wear out

is because they don’t know how to transform the beautiful things around them
