Aphrodite Rocks!

Blissful blessings have been well and truly showered upon me by Aphrodite today, I have spent the weekend embodying her energy and she has been most generous in her response. I had the best day at market that I’ve ever had, possibly something to do with the shoes that I wore, high heels that would have made the Goddess proud! If Aphrodite turned up in modern dress I am quite sure she would be wearing heels, that was my excuse anyway when I welcomed people to my toning circle yesterday.

These are the heels, an op shop bargain the Goddess would applaud!

It was the New Moon in Libra and so was all about harmony in relationship, balancing of the emotions, and appreciation of beauty, which is where Aphrodite comes into the picture. We explored her lush garden in a meditation and if you missed it and want a sense of it then have a look at my last post, possibly a bit over the top but we are talking about a Goddess so you can’t really go too far with superlatives.

The energy in our circle was very gentle and caring, the word that came up for me very strongly is tenderness with the emphasis very much on self-love. It somehow seems easier to be kind to others, when it comes to ourselves the inner critic often takes over and drowns out that other much gentler voice. And be kind to the critic too, they are trying to help even if they are misguided, acknowledge that sincerity even as you let them go.

Be as gentle with yourself as you would with this kitten.

It always does come back to love doesn’t it, it’s the stuff of which everything is made, it makes not only the world but the entire cosmos go round………and round and round and round. So if you are in the habit of self-flagellation then consider the possibility of creating a practice to change it, every time you notice yourself going into judgement with yourself or another, let go of the judgement and replace it with love. If you can’t actually feel the love then pretend, the old cliché “Fake it until you make it” is very true as most clichés are.

More about loving practices in future posts, until then farewell, with love and sonic blissings!

Beauty Walks Before Me.

Beauty walks before me, lies within my heart and soul, warms the blood running through veins that pulse with joy and delight, as I gaze upon the paradise that lies all around me. Ripe fruit hanging from the trees leaps into my eagerly awaiting hands, succulent juices running down my chin as I bite into soft flesh, sweet aroma filling my nostrils until I am wont to swoon with ecstasy. The sound of music wafts into my ears as my body begins to sway to the sound, filling my cells with the joy of rapturous frequencies, feeding the force of life as it spirals from the earth up to the sky.

Arms and legs move as the muscles yearn to stretch into shapes of ecstasy, dancing to the pulse that burns within the fiery centre of my heart, opening my soul to the depths of all that is. Desire running through every atom that I am, as I merge into all things, softest silk caressing my skin as I spin myself into eternity and beyond, calling upon Aphrodite to gift me with her sensuality, with her love. Her divinity is mine, is everything upon which I cast my eye and all that I may sense through sparkling tendrils spanning galaxies, my mythic life glowing with potential.

Beauty is in every step that I take, it wells up as I gaze upon my own features, lovingly tracing the lines and shapes of my own glory, loving myself with such tenderness, gentle caring that softly guides me to the space that will serve me best. This inner radiance warms my soul and then radiates out to the world, going wherever it is needed the most, letting go of judgement as the energy of love washes all clean. Sound vibrates my being and carries my strong intention, frequencies shimmer and I melt……………….into even more of WHO I BE………ohm shanti, shanti, shanti……………..peace.

The Navajo Beauty Way Ceremony

In beauty may I walk
All day long may I walk
Through the returning seasons may I walk
Beautifully I will possess again
Beautifully birds
Beautifully joyful birds
On the trail marked with pollen may I walk
With grasshoppers about my feet may I walk
With dew about my feet may I walk
With beauty may I walk
With beauty before me may I walk
With beauty behind me may I walk
With beauty above me may I walk
With beauty all around me may I walk
In old age, wandering on a trail of beauty, lively, may I walk
In old age, wandering on a trail of beauty, living again, may I walk
It is finished in beauty
It is finished in beauty

Be Here Now.

Before I begin I would like to express my gratitude to those of you who have started following my blog, thank you so much for being interested in what I have to say. Gratitude is one of those qualities that is given its proper weight these days, Oprah probably has a lot to do with that, Goddess bless her!

Another important quality is the ability to live with uncertainty, something I have been looking at lately, and which is really in my face today. Sometimes the most trivial events can point these things out to us. I went to play the final dvd in the second series of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and yes I am still on that merry ride, and it was broken. Apparently I must have done it when I took it out of its case, something that has never happened to me before.

Not terribly important in the cosmic scale of things, I hear you say, but to an anal, two planets in Virgo, Buffy obsessive, this is really, really devastating. I almost could have cried, I know, a grown adult and shaken up by not knowing how the season ended. I am the first to agree that this is totally pathetic, I’m trusting my readers not to run away in droves at this sad admission. Actually there probably aren’t enough of you to be in droves, but you get my meaning!

As I wrestled with my feelings of disappointment, I told myself that I would just have to forge on ahead with the other episodes, letting go of the need to know what happened. And that was when I realised that this minor issue, was underlining a much bigger one, that I have indeed been looking at just these last few days. Wanting to know NOW if particular possibilities are going to develop into fully fledged manifestations, in work, relationship, everything as a matter of fact.

So much of my life is up in the air at the moment, my house sit ends in three weeks and I don’t have a new one yet. I’ve finished some aspects of my work and while I have a sense of moving into something exciting and new, I can’t see it yet. And when it comes to my Beloved, I can practically smell his pheromones sliding into my olfactory senses, mmmmmmmmmmm…………. Oh Aphrodite, bring it on!!!!

But for now I must make my peace with not knowing, I think I will tone for a bit and bring my frequencies into a better alignment, I choose to be happy with my life exactly as it is in this moment!
