Inspiration From The Vortex.

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

 

We Are One: From The Shadow To The Light.

sydney-opera-house-bridge-blueA day behind am I as I come back from a wonderful journey to the city of Sydney to play with my Beloved and our very dear friend. For those not of Oz think Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House, lots of water  and lovely depending on where you stay, we had nice water views. But city energy starts to get you down after a time however nice it is in your particular location, its a kind of pressure and I noticed it most when I got home and felt it’s absence. Ahhhhhhh………….. a wonderful place to visit but I will stay in the country methinks, the slower pace suits me very well.

I’d like to share some songs with you that my Beloved and I used in our last dance playlist, here is one that has been going round and round in my head and it expresses our theme that we are all one, interconnected.

Here’s an example of how we danced the shadow side of our theme, separation.

Keep dancing and singing and visioning your desire to live a responsible life of happiness and feeling connected to the web that most indigenous people seem to understand. Find your place of power and do whatever it is you came here to do in the critical current evolution of humanity, everyone has their place, do you know yours? You only need to know the first step really, and then have the courage to take that step and see what happens.

Not a particularly Australian Christmas but I love the colours and the sparkle!

Chrissy Blissings to You All, I will endeavour to manage a christmas eve missive for your delectation, hopefully.

Love to all life everywhere, for all time……..

Treasures Within And The Hobbit 3!

hobbit 3 hoardThe gleam of dragon’s hoard sparkling off in the distance, getting closer and closer………..she can almost see what it is, almost. Once again the sense of vision dances away and she realises that there is still time to be spent immersed in that sea of uncertainty. Knowing and feeling the connection to purpose and meaning does not guarantee always being able to see the precise shape of the future. Even though you know that it is there.

Hobbit-3-dragon flame

So I will continue to feel into it and we shall see what treasures shall be revealed. And I will make the promise to post something every Wednesday, may well be a surprise to me as well as to you! In the meantime I can look forward to seeing a film with a dragon and his hoard, a hobbit, a wizard and dwarves and a mountain of course. Great original story so very padded out in this trilogy but looks amazing and awesome in 3D, just think of it as related to the original book  and enjoy it for what it is I reckon.

Enjoy the 3D ride……………….!

An Extended Holy, Holy…….

vortexJust give me another week she said and I will have all kinds of strange delights to captivate and entrance you, I know I said I would be ready by now but time works strangely in the vortex.

Enter at your own risk, when I finally do return I will be posting once a week on a Wednesday………… as Douglas Adams said, “Time is an illusion, lunchtime doubly so.” And in the vortex time never even got a look in, it’s like one long lunch with all kinds of strange foods at the feast.

Big Rainbow

See you down the rabbit hole very soon………

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.

energy vortex

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!

Love you all very much and see you soon!

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!
