Walking On Thin Ice…

TODAY:

We are all tired.

Really, we are.

It’s a hard road, but it’s also a beautiful one.

Jeff Brown

I woke on Friday to find thick snow had fallen. It was an icy cold morning. The wind fierce, the vision before me a carpet of pristine snow. The roof icy white and gleaming. The bare trees covered in heavy clumps of snow. The gutters and window ledges hung with clear icicles…

Yesterday, my small paved garden, had a layer of solid ice under the blanket of snow. I chopped and hacked to create a pathway to the bird feeders. It was tough work.

Later, I rewarded myself with freshly buttered scones and a pot of hot steaming coffee. I settled into my cosy haven for the weekend. Yet I felt unsettled…

Today after rain in the night, the snow has mysteriously disappeared. As if it never was. Traces of ice on my property are scattered around in small blocks. My body aches from yesterdays efforts to clear snow and ice but, today is bright. A fresh start awaits…

ONE WORD: Endurance

COLOUR: Ice White

I FEEL: Timeless.


For months, in between completing my first book, I have been deep in thought on perhaps too many matters…spiritual, scientific, political, historic, personal – but mostly about the people, the animals and our environment.
Yet, I have felt far away from people and places. At a distance.

I have sensed both heaviness and light…as life shifts and weaves, moves, heaves and turns…the road falters, then alters course. We try to reverse but too late, onward we go. Are we on the right road, or, on a road to nowhere, I ask myself…

INSIGHTS:

“Change Follows Chaos…”
Everything around us is signalling for dynamic change. Celebrate it and let it be so. Live these coming months in a way that shows that you know that everything in life matters. I intend to do so.

I know many of us feel fooled, frustrated and tired. Yet around us life is shifting. The people, governments, the very earth and sky…

THE COLLECTIVE:

Let your mind start a journey through a strange new world.

Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before.

Let your soul take you where you long to be.

Close your eyes, let your spirit soar and you’ll live as you’ve never lived before.


Erich Fromm

Life is full of unexpected surprises right now. Often they are a shock to us. Surely our main responsibility is to care of ourselves first! Or we could be at risk of burn-out at this time of fast paced living and change. Find balance and keep that balance. It is essential to every aspect of our survival.

I know many are dealing with insomnia, tension, sinus, tinnitus, headaches, feeling unsettled, even living on auto pilot. I have had to rearrange my daily routine to accommodate the strange sleep patterns I am having. I am going with it.

I understand that we are transforming ourselves on every possible level, and the transition from the ‘old’ to the ‘new’ is a daunting, often overwhelming process. Even if we have no idea what that means yet…

AFFIRMATION:

“I AM safe…”

The Dream of the World…

“Each truth you learn will be, for you, as new as if it had never been written…”

Ancient Egyptian proverb

TODAY:
Severe dark wet days have been with us in the SW of England, for what feels like forever…Its grey, wet, with strong cold wintery winds…that at times, have felt energetically draining too.

IN ONE WORD: Grace

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Silver

HOW I FEEL:

She had stars behind each eyelid,
A galaxy in her soul,
That drew people to her endless heart,
She was made of earth and fire,
Of wishes cast on shooting stars…

Yes, I accept that I am still very fragile…should I be? I don’t know? But of course the whole of last week was extremely busy for me. Getting ready to teach (Colour Therapy) for 4 days, which required preparation on may levels. Looking for notes, sorting out printed pages, throwing away, tidying and arranging as I went…Pouring bottles, arranging, unpacking and finally – ‘me time’ to prepare myself.

It went very well and now its over. I am grateful and satisfied. Here I am with my feet up and a cup of hot tea beside me…

“I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn.

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said,

people will forget what you did,

but people will never forget how you made them feel.”

PHYSICALLY: I have been forced to take one day at a time, since having a mild heart attack in October. Resting, pensive, yet lively thoughts and ideas fill my mind…
But, each body has received many mixed signals lately, with many conflicting truths. Are our bodies in overload?! Mine seems to be taking on a life of its own. Yes, I do believe that all of humanity is in overload. Especially physically and emotionally.

INSIGHTS:

“We are being challenged to step outside of our comfort zones,

forced to reassess and re-examine cherished and long held beliefs”

I get a strong feeling that its time of run all to help create a new world – for all of us to move into. We have each changed so much! Yes, in different ways, but we are not the same people we were last year this time. Are we? I know I am not!

We have been inching towards the doorway to that ‘next world’ for so long, that some of us want to give up. Stop I say! Lets do this together, because we can! We have had to re-think what we knew to be true, and we have to learn new ways to live in this rapidly shifting world.

THE COLLECTIVE:

‘The reason why most of us wear out, or give up –

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

into energy and enthusiasm.’

Ashtara

Do not despair, question too deeply, or attempt to understand ALL that happens, and as it unfolds in your own life, or to those around you. Take your time to rest, to think clearly, to breath! Let body, mind and emotions constantly re-balance. Then allow these world changes and the many earth changes, to be what they need to be, knowing that changes are happening in each and every moment. Much like a run-away train…And it may well confuse us and frighten us, yet at the same time, new ways of being are appearing in tandem.

“Between the lines we are being energetically whacked with numerous changes, as the winds of energy move through us.”

Dr. Meg

The Heart of Winter…

1507154_10152863997406421_7828513470394915187_n

THE HEART OF WINTER

“Within the grip of winter, it is almost impossible to imagine the spring.

The grey perished landscape is shorn of colour.

Only bleakness meets the eye; everything seems severe and edged.

Winter is the oldest season; it has some quality of the absolute.

Yet beneath the surface of winter, the miracle of spring is already in preparation; the cold is relenting; seeds are wakening up. Colours are beginning to imagine how they will return.

Then, imperceptibly, somewhere one bud opens and the symphony of renewal is no longer reversible.

From the black heart of winter a miraculous, breathing plenitude of colour emerges.”

John O’Donohue – Benedictus

Open Your Heart…

“If you’re really listening, if you’re awake to the poignant beauty of the world,

your heart breaks regularly.

In fact, your heart is made to break; its purpose is to burst open again and again

so that it can hold evermore wonders.” 

Andrew Harvey

DAY: chilled, silent, deep, touched by Gods rain…

WORD: poignant

COLOUR: pastel blue

FEELING: touched, deep, loving, appreciative

BODY: harnessing new energies and new ideas

THE COLLECTIVE: ‘The shortest day of the year 12/21/2013 (mirror image of 12:12) asks us to become the extra light that is needed to push thru the dark night of the soul. To become that which we do not see in our lives. To become hope and faith and love, starting with self and all life choices. To become a living light no matter what season it is.’*

INSIGHTS: Love the animals, love the plants, love everything. If you love everything, you will perceive the divine mystery in things. Once you perceive it, you will begin to comprehend it better every day. And you will come at last to love the whole world with an all-embracing love
