Love Can Heal the World…

13781752_820749014692243_4816278367086706687_n

‘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!’

TODAY:

Morning, from a wet and soggy Glastonbury. In fact many places have had storms and heavy downpours. So much is happening energetically at this time too. The incredibly powerful Lions Gate energies, which I began to feel around the 28th, are building as we move towards the 8:8.

ONE WORD: Perseverence

COLOUR OF THE DAY:

Pastel BLUE – the sky on a perfect cloudless day…

HOW I FEEL:
Today again. I am hardly myself. It happens over and over.
It is heaven-sent. It flows through me. like the blue wave.

Mary Oliver

Well, my friends, its a wonderfully quiet morning here in Glastonbury. After quite a tumultuous week, last week…It is warm and humid, yet, dark with heavy rainclouds above. I am enjoying a slow peaceful morning…

Then yesterday afternoon, the rain came down! And it rained and rained and rained…often very heavily. It continued for about 5-6 hours. My courtyard flooded! The drains could not cope with the volume of water, and there was about 3-4 inches of water above the main drain grid. I did my best to deal with this in the pounding rain…

In the end I managed to release the flooded waters…I was drenched and shattered. Today, I am sore all over…my shoulders, back, arms. This too shall pass…

PHYSICALLY:
The remedy for fear is love, not simply releasing it.
Fear is a slow, solidified energy that needs to be unwound with love…

Michael Harrington

Many of us have needed more sleep, as the body goes through a huge shift, once more. Some are finding themselves with stomach upset, nausea, headaches and all over body aches.

I have been experienced many of those symptoms in the past 2 weeks. I have listened to my body, rested and taken life slow and steady. And often after being up for a few hours, I have felt tired again. That has meant an afternoon nap, when ever possible.

INSIGHTS:

“To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter…to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird’s nest or a wildflower in spring…these are some of the rewards of the simple life.”
John Burroughs

We are in the midst of such a powerful time of change. This is history in the making!
At times everything seems upside down, and life feels as if it is unravelling out there. Every where we look, everything we read or watch. And I say; Let us shine with compassion and understanding, even when it seems impossible to endure…

After having for so long done no more than allow itself to live, Mankind will one day understand that the time has come to undertake its own development and to mark its own road…

The Lions-Gate! Wow! Of course we are still in it and going through it, until at least 8:8…This time of the Lions-Gate, and the opening of a powerful Stargate – is a challenging time physically and even emotionally for most of us.

It seems to cut through whatever we have not faced, or need to understand…As it cuts through things, it also exposes or releases. If we are ready to do so…
May we all absorb and enjoy what’s coming and allow everything to unfold in our lives as it is meant.

Memories of Avalon…

tor-3s

Winter is an etching, spring a water colour,

summer an oil painting and autumn a mosaic of them all.

TODAY: ‘In the awakening dawn, the breezes flow through ancient shards of right and wrong to speak to your heart’

A warm and delicious day. Is Summer finally here? I wonder…

This Blog was written in 2014, yet as my eyes re-read these words, it resonated with my day and I felt compelled to share it once more…with a few additions…

HOW I FEEL: “Some sacred places can help you on your journey of self-discovery, Glastonbury is that place…”

Ashtara

BLOG:30:09:14:mktplace-10383-1

Placing my feet on the sacred earth of Glastonbury, off I went for glorious stroll in the sunshine to melt away the cobwebs of my winter…Perhaps less enthusiastically than usual, for I am weaker this year and still shaky after several months of ill health…

Yet, how blessed I feel! Free and safe in this magical place, which allows time for reflection, understanding and healing.

PHYSICALLY: One day at a time…

BLOG:30:9:14:Glastonbury_01

INSIGHTS: ‘The spirits and places…memory of Avalon, whispered during quiet moments, on dark nights and when the Glastonbury women of today are singing and ‘being’ together.’

Its as if there is a deeper knowing of the power that this year brings. This time it is about definite change! I know that not all of those changes, shifts and realisations are going to be pleasant to see, to feel, to watch, or to act upon. For that reason – we need to take as much quiet time and alone time as possible. We need to embrace alone time rather than fear it, we need to allow those ’empty’ hours to be restful, calm, nourishing and spiritual. Listen to your heart and you will realise the truth of such opportunities!

ST.MARGARETS:11891123_10153538209943498_7795776135796934173_n

THE COLLECTIVE: Why not make the decision today to go for your dream? Commit yourself to it. Pursue it with passion! Grab hold of it with all your heart and do not let go!

The world is at war – different countries, differing groups, individuals, youngsters, teens, entire families and some are at war with themselves! And what we are observing is those who are hanging on tight, with what they believe to be theirs alone, to take, to have and hold, or it is because they feel safer with ideas and beliefs, that are old and tired and well past their ‘sell by date’, yet still feel perhaps too familiar.

Blessed are you
who comes like a whisper
in my breath
and spreads images of
majesty before me.

Losses and Great Gains…

What did you find in the fields today.
You who have wandered so far away?
I found a wind-flower, small and frail,
And a crocus cup like a holy grail;
I found a hill that was clad in gorse,
 I saw a star and a moonlit tree;
I listened…
I think Goddess spoke to me.

TODAY: I greet you all from a very icy Glastonbury.
Thin layers of white shiny ice coating everything outside…Bright sunshine was my gift as I looked out to greet the day!

ONE WORD: Perseverance

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Spring Green

HOW I FEEL: ‘In spite of the distractions, I must not forget the true meaning of life…’

Although my health has been fragile, I have had many new ideas come to mind. I have worked with letting people and places go completely, after years of holding on…
One of which is my Newsletter, Satori. I have been writing a 7-8 page Newsletter for 10 years. I am very grateful to the loyal followers, many who have followed the Newsletters from the very beginning. Even with changes of name and format…I am truly grateful to you all! Yet, I feel it is the right time to stop.

Firstly it is a 2 week project, working at it constantly often 5-6 hours a day, every 2 months – it is all consuming at that time. Finally after many suggestions and nudges from friends, I will settle down and write a book or two…whether I will complete one, I am not sure. I know I am far better at writing short articles…time will tell.

24715_381916468130_4253970_n

PHYSICALLY: I have had 10 challenging days, with health issues taking a turn and in the end, tears were shed out of pure frustration…I have changed what I eat, completely, after discovering I am allergic to many ‘ordinary foods’ and I had Acupuncture mid-week.
Since then, I have slowly and quietly been getting back to myself…still fragile and weak, but I can feel the improvement…Actually – I began to feel better that afternoon, as we drove towards Somerton for my appointment, through beautiful Somerset countryside…green rolling hills and farmland, bridges, rivers, and baby lambs frolicking…As I gazed out I thought; Some years just float by with little change, but this year is changing me on very deep levels…

We have found ourselves this year, perhaps confused, angry, helpless and saddened by wars, the refugee crisis, earth disasters, animal cruelty (especially elephants and rhino), and the deaths all of this brings, deaths that have affecting the lives of millions of people.
It is clear to me that we have entered a very powerful time in the history of our planet! May peace return to earth…

Masters of War…

10522611_831431556868374_1462515238863864003_o
Come you masters of war


You that build all the guns


You that build the death planes


You that build all the bombs


You that hide behind walls


You that hide behind desks


I just want you to know


I can see through your masks.

1382821_169246509938816_2138456244_n
You that never done nothin’


But build to destroy


You play with my world


Like it’s your little toy


You put a gun in my hand


And you hide from my eyes


And you turn and run farther


When the fast bullets fly.

1662351_205333092996824_705169782_n
Like Judas of old


You lie and deceive


A world war can be won


You want me to believe


But I see through your eyes


And I see through your brain


Like I see through the water


That runs down my drain.

10174853_673899979350120_1990285591769335964_n
You fasten all the triggers


For the others to fire


Then you set back and watch


When the death count gets higher


You hide in your mansion


As young people’s blood


Flows out of their bodies


And is buried in the mud.

10464032_684532408286877_6939415003637602275_n
You’ve thrown the worst fear


That can ever be hurled


Fear to bring children


Into the world


For threatening my baby


Unborn and unnamed


You ain’t worth the blood


That runs in your veins.

10525754_10203323317816382_1410448840275715036_n
How much do I know


To talk out of turn


You might say that I’m young


You might say I’m unlearned


But there’s one thing I know


Though I’m younger than you


That even Jesus would never


Forgive what you do.

The-Outsider

Let me ask you one question


Is your money that good


Will it buy you forgiveness


Do you think that it could


I think you will find


When your death takes its toll


All the money you made


Will never buy back your soul.

jesus_king_1
And I hope that you die


And your death’ll come soon


I will follow your casket


In the pale afternoon


And I’ll watch while you’re lowered


Down to your deathbed


And I’ll stand over your grave


’Til I’m sure that you’re dead.

If Everyone Loved and Nobody Lied…

To understand the world
knowledge is not enough;
you must see it, touch it,
live in its presence and drink the vital heat of existence
in the very heart of reality.
Teilhard De Chardin

TODAY: I woke at 4am, intensely hot. I lingered in my little garden…the air was sweet, the morning silent, peace was tangible in my world. The morning has awakened and become hazy, hot, heady…

IN ONE WORD: Peace to all Beings…

SOUL COLOUR OF THE DAY: Deep blue

HOW I FEEL: Contemplative – on the fragility and power of the living world and all its people.

308053_387983694606463_1830749372_n

INSIGHTS: (I wrote this on 21/12/2012) – Let us all use it as a reminder…

‘Prior to the ‘Inbreath and Outbreath of God’, much must be exposed, defused, realigned and changed. This could and will cause a scramble of energies and effort. It may even cause damage to your fellow man, people, places and things…Should this occur, it will be fast, fierce but brief…This may carry over into the ‘new phase’ on Earth, by the sheer will of those in power, or those with extreme control issues and ‘your money’ to do these acts.’

THE COLLECTIVE: (Continued): ‘Those who consider themselves to be ‘Aware and Awake’, need to stay balanced in their true lives and focus fully on what is in their Dream, with the addition of a more intense quotient of love and faith…This is a complex agenda we know, but all of you who are aware of what is taken place, will understand what is coming and will therefore accept and know that all is well.’

‘Keep your loved ones close, your home filled with love and light, your health stable. Eat from reliable sources. This too is a subtle way that the dark cabal wish to cause you harm. Allow your sleep to be ‘broken’ if that is how it is, use the waking time wisely and the sleep time to rest and recoup. Drink more water and ensure that it is pure and charged with a good vibration.’

‘We have spoken for many years in many different instances of this need to be prepared (head, heart and body). This includes you, those close to you, ‘family’, your living space and community. Most of you, even those who say they are enlightened of informed, have not harnessed such information and used it wisely.’

We must let the tired pessimists lag behind…

Amen I, Amen I, Amen I
I’m alive…
