Inspiration From The Vortex.

Coming your way every Wednesday and Sunday, join me on a whimsical, informative and at times profound journey into the depths of healing the soul………..mine……..yours………..the whole planet!

 

Holy, Holy, Holy Holidays!

psychedelic vortexOfficial Announcement, somewhat belated………. I am having four weeks off and I don’t have back up posts, I received that piece of advice when I had already well and truly begun this journey down the rabbit hole!

Down the rabbit holeSo I am in the vortex right now and when I get out the other side I will let you know what has unfolded, the plan is for this to happen by Sunday 30th November.

More than that I can’t say………mostly I’m hopelessly in love and the more time I can hang out with my Beloved the happier I am!

Well there has been a percolation indeed! Our beautiful exploration of the Divine Dance between the masculine and the feminine was well received and I personally had a wonderful dance, exactly what I have been missing. I can’t be the only one, we might have to put some focus into getting the message out further afield. After all we are part of a region, part of the state, the country, our planet Earth, or Gaia as she is sometimes known. Which leads me perfectly into the next part of my journey, a flow that is unfolding so beautifully, my deep sense of how I am connected to everything.

And this is going to be the essence of the theme of our next dance which will occur on the night of the full moon in Gemini, communication features heavily with this star sign. So our theme of the interconnectedness of all things is a great concept for that full moon energy to flow into our ocean of love. The playlists tend to be rather organic but I do think that humour is always good here and there, one can get a bit serious sometimes. And some good solid dancing to groovy rhythms and soulful beat, music you can be deliciously lost in, body surrendered to the sound, you become the sound in movement.

Mmmmmm……… I reckon there could be some pretty wild music and fun to be had dancing your heart and your soul, letting the body guide you in what will support you. I look forward to creating the sonic landscape with my Beloved, we always have so much fun! And we learn a lot too, stuff comes up and we engage with a process to clear it. There are lots of ways to move energy in the body, our favourite therapy is our relationship as a spiritual practice. And sometimes we might simply open our hearts and talk to each other, being witnessed on a deep level is very powerful.

Dancing Lovers.

I could go on but it’s time to go now, there are many gardens to tend and I need to go to a different one now. Farewell my virtual friends!

Aho!

The Soft Animal Of Your Body.

Melting into a soft warm flow of loving creative energy, feeling the interconnectedness of all people, all things. There is a way of surrendering into the moment that will serve one very well indeed, whether that moment be perceived as happy or sad. Clearing the shadows away with more and more an ecstatic glow, challenges lead to growth and being seen in all my glory!

Movement is the melt in the glow of radiant hearts and candles, energy moving through its paces and clearing the pathways that life desires to lift in joy and inspiration. Until you may even feel as if you are floating upon the earth rather than stepping on it, and yet you can always feel the Mother’s heartbeat.

Much of this flow of consciousness is informed by my experience of facilitating an ecstatic dance with the theme being: The Divine Dance Between The Masculine And The Feminine. I can feel that there will be more to say on this subject but if you are intrigued you will have to wait until Wednesday to hear more. The stew needs to simmer some more and I am tired and needing to take care of myself on a supremely busy day!

This poem feels like me in this moment!

Wild Geese

 
You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

Colourful Altars Along The Spiritual Path.

3textures-AGAINI sit here surrounded by a beautiful chaos, there is order and where it is not so you will find a view of gorgeous fabrics. A purple and silver sari draped over various massage related bits and pieces, above it a much darker purple belly dance scarf with two rows of silver coins. My Beloved’s paintings are now around us, just a few examples, full of vibrant colour and abstract shapes and forms. They seem very much like the expression of energies moving and much of his inspiration for the work has come through inner journeying.

shrine-candelabra-AGAIN

There are three permanent altars in the space and probably would be even if we didn’t sometimes see clients here. Personal ritual can be a very powerful process, making an altar can be such fun! It can also be used as a focusing tool, by that I mean a ceremony that you bring intention to. And it has the capacity to shift your vibration into greater health, taking you from tired and grumpy to calm and inspired. Whatever shift you desire can be greatly assisted by the right kind of routine, and by that I mean the one that works for you. As we often used to say when I was studying counselling, you are the expert in your own life.

Might also be useful to tune into the colours around you and see if you can get a sense of how it feels to look at something red, or blue or green or yellow. And all of the other shades that are possible in a myriad of forms, nature abounds with huge variety and amongst man-made things in the world there are some very beautiful things one can have around the place. I have had the experience of walking beneath a sky that was a certain shade of deep blue and actually feeling the energy from that colour pouring into me. It felt great and even though I can’t tell you in words exactly what I was getting from it, I knew that it was just what I needed at the time because it felt so very right!

Have fun.

So remember to try to have a little fun in your life even when it gets a bit challenging, probably especially then as a matter of fact. For me having a spiritual path is what helps me navigate whatever waters I am sailing through.  And things like making altars and playing with colours are part of a vast array of practices that can not only support your personal growth, but also help to keep your inner child happy and well.

Yay! The rich feast which is LIFE!

 

Out With The Old And In With The New!

body in spaceThe lesson this week has been all about listening to my body, not necessarily in words but more often in feelings, the felt sense. It can have emotion attached to it but it is what is described as the kinesthetic sense and it is my primary way of receiving information about my world. Because we exist in a culture that tries to describe everything in a so-called rational way the interpretation can be challenging.

So I try to stay with how I am feeling in each moment rather than on creating stories. With an itchy rash and then an intensely painful left shoulder I’ve had to surrender to the feelings and sit with them. My body made it impossible for my week to unfold in the way I had planned and there were things I had to let go of. Somehow I have managed to balance it all and I find myself in a place where all is done and only a gentle ache in  my shoulder. I’ve been kind to me even as I practice responsibility, the ability to respond to life’s shifting sands. And in my definition that means a response that is good for me and all life everywhere.

Choose-Being-Kind-Over-Right1

Can I tell you what it’s all been about? Not really, except that really huge energies have been moving through me to be cleared which is very exciting but can sometimes be a tad uncomfortable. It is so worth hanging on and staying with that discomfort, as you clear the old patterns more light can come in and you can see the larger you much more clearly than ever before. More light to share with the world but in particular my Beloved who is away from my side until tonight, three days and nights, oh how I do pine…….. But I also get things done, keeping the balance as best I can in each moment………..

Energy on the move!

Energy on the move!

Don’t forget to LOVE everyone, even the ones you don’t like very much!

True Vision Cometh Through Pain And Discomfort.

in the warsWell I have certainly been in the wars since I last spoke to you! I’m glad I re-told you a story that neatly illustrated the idea that your body is speaking to you and that understanding this can bring healing and release. Not that it felt neat at the time but the way the rash began to get better as soon as I had taken action felt like a miracle as well as being a blessed relief. At the moment I am still in process but there is some relief as I no longer have a terrible itch on my hands and arms. And my left shoulder is still very sore but so much better than it was, I had to keep it as still as possible because all movement was painful.

I have had a couple of sessions on the energy that is moving through and it seems like it is ancestral connections that may need to be healed. That may well be part of the job I signed up for when I agreed to come to Planet Earth at this momentous time in humanity’s history. I found a road in my left shoulder which leads to where I need to go but there was resistance in me and I wasn’t quite ready to take that path. I think it needs to happen soon but not quite yet, I will feel my way into the future and see how it emerges from the mix.

For we all have within us the vision of all that we are. past, present and future, asked by society to be small we get scared by such a vast picture. We think it’s too much for us but it can give you clues to important aspects of your own existence. I have gone into the clouds with my Beloved having left our old bodies in a ceremony, there we meet a dear old friend who went some time before us. It felt like a true vision to me, they are rarely very long but they are intense and have a ring of authenticity about them.

Life can shift at a moment’s notice and yet there are what seem to be solid markers on the path that can be perceived when in a meditative or altered state of consciousness. Anyway I do seem to be surviving this latest episode, more insights if any come, love and tons of blissings to you all!

The Body Talks And Talks: Are You Listening?

rash and rainbow tarotI have a lot of energy moving through me and some of it is expressing itself through an itchy rash on my arms and hands. Not sure how clearly you can see it in this photo but believe me when it goes into ultra itchiness it can seem almost unbearable. I will see how this unfolds and let you know if I can pass on anything useful. In the meantime here is a story I’m re-blogging as a great example of how the body can give us very clear messages in the most amazing fashion. On this particular occasion understanding the message provided almost instant healing! Read on:

It would have been towards the end of 2003 when I was involved in intense shamanic training in bodywork and breathwork, that I experienced this rash in  a very intense form. I went to a talk by Nityama, a tantric master, just hugging him is enough to trigger an orgasmic state, I got a lot out of his talk on conscious relationships and it got me thinking about the relationship that I had supposedly ended just recently.It was someone I had a deep bond with and love for, but it was definitely not a conscious relationship, I had ended it because I knew it was doomed but he was still coming to my bed, it can be hard to let go as I’m sure you all know! At the end of that talk I knew I had to finish it completely but a week later I still hadn’t done anything about it.

Then a day or two after a bodywork session this rash started to develop on my face, it was intensely itchy and I had little pustules that wept at night so I had to have a towel on my pillow. I still went to work, life modelling and working in a bookshop, I was determined to work out what the rash was telling me so I refused to suppress it with medication. This went on for four days and then I was talking with my dear buddy Ulli on the phone about it, and we were discussing the significance of where it was occurring on my body, she said, “What is you’re not facing?”

The penny dropped and as soon as I hung up on her I rang my ex and asked him to come visit, he wasn’t surprised when I said we had to finish completely, there was a sense of relief on both our parts. I went to bed that night and when I woke up the rash was well on the way to healing, I had got the message and taken appropriate action.The message isn’t always as clear as on that occasion, but the body is always talking to us, and it has a deep wisdom we would be wise to tap into. In order to access this space it is necessary to do clearing on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels of our being. I’ve been engaged in this process since the beginning of 2000 but the good news is that for some of you it will be much quicker, I have had a lot of damage to clear which is often the case for those of us engaged in the healing arts.

Either way it is so worth doing, life just gets better and better, there is more joy, pleasure and fun to be had, in fact it’s infinite!! So go ahead and follow your bliss, that’s my plan!
