A Second Wind…

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see the beauty, believe in them and try to follow where they lead.
 Louisa May Alcott

TODAY:

A cooler morning. Fine mist above the taller trees. I see fine wet cobwebs…The day feels soft and delicate. Or is that me. 

ONE WORD: Gratitude

COLOUR: Green

I FEEL:

I have thought often of my Blog page and those who follow my posts. I want to apologise for not writing any recent Blogs…but where has this year gone. We seem to have travelled though time at supersonic speed.

I have faced many challenges this year so far, physically and emotionally. It has been that way for many. A year of change with no more sitting on the fence.

I have also reworked and polished my book about my childhood in S.Africa during apartheid, (yet to be published). There was more work there than I thought when I typed the last word! I am doing my final read/edit and am happy with it. It has taken 18 months to complete. It has been cathartic in many ways and a real struggle too. Who would have thought!

‘Colonial Africa – white men with their exclusive clubs their cocktail parties and their delicate wives.’

Ann Cleeves  

“It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life.

Where you stumble, there lies your treasure.”

Joseph Campbell

My path has become a deeply spiritual life and for that reason, solitary…The energy of Glastonbury and the ‘free-spirit’ attitude (I am a city girl at heart), has allowed me time and space to do a deep level of inner work. While writing it became clear why I am here at all…I often wondered.

INSIGHTS: The final months this year will continue to challenge and surprise us all. Be aware of your own limits. Many of us need time out to find a ‘second wind.’  There will be days when we feel overtired, overwhelmed, too lethargic to go about our usual routine…I have learnt to pay attention to my needs and rest. I hope you do the same.

AFFIRMATION: “I AM powerful, loving and unafraid…”

‘SATORI’ RETURNS…

“Your soul knows the geography of your destiny.

Your soul alone has the map of your future,

therefore you can trust this indirect, oblique side of yourself.

If you do, it will take you where you need to go,

but more important it will teach you a kindness of rhythm in your journey.”

John O’Donohue

DAY: fierce winds, driving rain, calm, dark…sodden

WORD: inspiration

COLOUR: soft green

FEELING: profoundly ‘Blessed’ on so many levels…

BODY: settling, resting, allowing

THE COLLECTIVE: and Earth shall become the diamond light of this galaxy… The Hathors

INSIGHTS: Many of you are new to my Blog and may know nothing of my previous writings. For many years my monthly Newsletter SATORI,  went out to quite a large following. For a variety of reasons I decided to create a Mini-Blog instead and let the Newsletter go after 10 years…

Due to an overwhelming number of requests for SATORI to continue, and after much thought, soul-searching and guidance, I have decided to do re-establish it, using a more varied format.

The New Edition will be out this week!

You are welcome to visit the website where editions of SATORI can be found**, have a look through past editions. Then if you wish to be placed on the Mailing list, either to be notified when it comes out, or to receive your own PDF copy each month, let me know.

Blessings to you All!

“The cosmos that you and I are experiencing right now,

with trees, plants, people, houses, cars, stars, and galaxies,

is just consciousness

expressing itself at one particular frequency.”

Deepak Chopra
