New Possibilities…

“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.

“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.

WORD: Unsettled

COLOUR: Grey

I FEEL: Sad, Unsettled. Adjusting.

Going through layer upon layer of deep healing and the strengthening…light shining through…self discovery.

INSIGHTS:

“Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won.

It exists. it is real. it is possible. it’s yours.”
Ayn Rand

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

THE COLLECTIVE:

‘The words you think are more powerful that the words you speak.’ 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…

The Call Of Life…

realm

“Outside the open window
The morning air is all awash with angels.”
Richard Wilbur

All of life beckons you into sacred relationship – the trees, the grasses, the animals, the souls of all whom you meet. All of life reaches to you for the response of your heart, for the response of your inner knowing, for the response of your deepest truth.

Sacred life, the life of the Earth and of all that exists within the vast universe, calls to you to recognize it, to honor it, to celebrate it, to join it. Only the history of three-dimensional reality has created narrowed vision. It has created a view of the world as solid. It has created the perception of aloneness.

310516_10150283337488131_7061358_nNone of this is true, beloved. None of it corresponds to your heart’s deepest knowing. Your heart knows that it is part of something vast and mysterious, something that fosters life and is life. Your heart knows that the world is much more than it appears to the physical senses. It feels the miracle of birth everywhere – of children, of flowers, of animals, of stars. It recognizes the creative power behind all of these births and knows that life is ongoing – it comes from somewhere and goes somewhere. It is flow.

13140_10152951861428969_332846315122583082_nThe rational mind has been empowered to define reality according to the physical senses and organs within the brain. However, the rational mind is not the source of deepest knowing. Your inner being, to which you are always connected, is the source of deepest knowing. You are always there. It is always with you, however covered over it may be.

Celebration of life cannot come from the rational mind. Celebration of life can only come from the Mystery. It can only come from the perception of the power of life that moves in miraculous ways to create newness where none existed before. Celebration bears witness to the miraculous. It bears witness to the miraculous life of the Earth and of the heavens. It bears witness to the joy that arises from your very own heart when your own child is born. Celebration of life comes from the Mystery and remains in the Mystery, attuned to the Source of life that is the Source of the Mystery, whether recognized or not.

All of life beckons to you to respond to it, to engage with it, to be in relationship with it. All of life reaches to you, calls to you, asks you to be present. Fear closes down the ability to hear this call. Self-protection inhibits the reaching out to others. And yet the ‘others’ are continually reaching out to you. They are angels, and guides, and helpers on all levels of spiritual reality. They are devas, and spirits of the streams, and spirits of the trees, and of the Earth. God reaches to you as well, directly, intimately, within the stirrings of your very own heart.

Blessing may be felt by those who walk in the stream of holy life, who recognize the life that is everywhere. Blessing may be felt by those who open their hearts and ask to feel the oneness of all – who ask for an end to separation and to be part of the All.

It is a matter of reaching out your hand, beloved one. Touch the trees with your hand. Touch the leaves with your fingers. Touch the air with your breath. Touch the sky with your awe and wonder.

You are already there. You are already home. You are already part of All-That-Is.
