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!

Traces of The Past, Letting Go Ecstatically.

It’s a bleak day and my Beloved is away, but my life is so full of happiness these days, I can hardly feel blue. But I can feel ‘stuff’ moving through and the cold, wet and windy day, seems like rather a large reflection of this. I let go of a few bits of baggage, an echo of loss, traces of abandonment, these wounds run deep but surely the layers will run out one day. They certainly become less and less over time as you shed, and what you attract into your life shifts with it.

But you will require patience on a path of this kind, the road to my current ecstatic space has been pretty rocky at times. Sometimes you have to take risks as you follow your heart. And finding self-love is such an important foundation to live an inspired and ecstatic life, living with purpose! Somehow most of the crazy shit I’ve done in this existence is coming together and will help me to step even more fully upon my spiritual path. Look for a common thread that runs through your life, for me it has been an eternal fascination with consciousness, altered states of all kinds.

Don’t settle for anything less than all that you can be, we are living in times of great transition, end times, and there is the opportunity to write new stories for a new age. And so I go into my cave as the wind blows outside my door, and I cosy up to a hot water bottle, eating chocolate and reading books about magic. A time of rest as the Mother washes us clean and nourishes the plants making everything green again. At the moment it can’t be seen much through the mist, hoping it will clear next weekend for the Maleny Music Weekend.

Looking forward to seeing my Beloved this evening, couldn’t wait for four days so we meet sort of half way to sleep in each others arms before he arms himself and goes back to the big smoke. Not my knight in shining armour but my King, someone I can rely on to be strong and steady even as he shows his tenderest heart.

Thank you my Love…………blissings to you all!

Apocalypse Now.

Post_apocalypseReeling through the haze of a post-apocalyptic state, I realise that the revolution has been huge in the inner realms, end times always get bad press. Hasn’t anyone heard about the ones who banded together and co-operated their way into a golden new future, based on the principles of respect for all forms of life, all of it. And remember that this has to happen on a smaller scale, one bit of consciousness at a time, so don’t go banging on about how you don’t matter. There isn’t a single piece of anything in the known universe that isn’t worthy of the greatest respect, life is truly a miracle and I feel really plugged into that at the moment.

Some great lyrics here from World Party with their song “Private Revolution”:

So I need to try to take responsibility for myself in the fullest way that I can, that means flexibility and the ability to respond so shedding is often on the schedule. As we move into the energy of the Winter Solstice, coming from an adventurous Full Moon in Sagittarius to the darkest point of the year, I can feel the old energies that I am letting go of. Through ceremony, yoga, herbs and food and the spiritual practices of relationship I can feel this energy that is being spewed out almost it feels. Certainly purging and I am pretty sure this is a case of better out than in, I don’t always need to know what I am releasing but it is clear that this is uncomfortable material.

Thanks to all of you who follow my ramblings, writing this to you is helping me to integrate and process the energies moving through, never underestimate the power of some kind of journaling. But I think I need to let go of the overview and just be in each moment for a bit now so I will bid you farewell and see you on friday!

Love and blissings!

The Fire Of Love Never Runs Out.

My photo of my fire reborn!

My photo of my fire reborn!

The theme tonight is fire, death and rebirth, the power of three and the power of persistence, of never giving up………..just as love never stops or runs out. Anger, resentment, jealousy, pride and arrogance, even sorrow eventually will run out, but love just keeps on going. So if you can tap into that ocean which is always here you have become one with a power that is about as renewable as energy gets!

“The lover who leans upon the beloved’s response, his love is like the flame that needs oil to live; but the lover who stands on his own feet, is like the lantern of the sun that burns without oil.”

Hazrat Inayat Khan.

The Phoenix of flame rising from the ashes , hope burns eternal!

The Phoenix of flame rising from the ashes , hope burns eternal!

My beloved left a fire set for me to light as he would not be home until late, I treasure his delight in contributing to my happiness and enjoy a good fire so I set fire to paper before it was dark. All seemed well and I thought the fire was taking well but alas it failed, I girded my loins and mustered some fuel and managed to find a flame but again it seemed to die. After the third time I had almost given up but as I gazed at the fire I saw there was a bed of coals and the smaller log was glowing. I blew upon it and flames licked up, I coaxed the hot coals to deliver the heat that would finally get my fire going, the juices of my creativity that have been brewing in this lovers nest.

Look here my fire looks like a scene from outer space!

Oh what fun to explore the pathways of consciousness and connection and to share that with other beings, fellow seekers on the path of bliss and self-love. As we approach the Winter Solstice it is time to consider what you may be ready to shed, to let go of in the darkness of the longest night of the year, transforming into a rebirth as a new day dawns. But before that we have a Sagittarius Full Moon, the adventurous traveller and explorer of different realities inner and outer. The optimist who will always see the world as an exciting place to discover and who is therefore much more likely to be able to navigate turbulent times.

And we are living in tumultuous times, the possibility for positive change has never been so full even as we seem to see the dark forces triumphing over the poor and the helpless. Use your imagination to link with the powerful energies we are a part of and help us all to create the world we all want to live in, all of a sudden one day it will be here and there will be nothing that the ignorant can do about it. And perhaps even they will wake at the last, evolution ensures that we all will wake and flow through the process that eventually returns us to the unity that we have come from.

So be it, so be it, so be it.

Once Upon The Sea Of Blissful Awareness.

Ayahuasca image 4I only just remembered that I am supposed to write a post for tonight! I am in a space of no-time with my Beloved and I completely forgot what day it was, that is true relaxation. So I am going to honour that lovely place that has no deadlines by staying there and making this the shortest post I have ever published.

So I offer you a little exercise if you fancy it, this piece of music gives a sense of where my consciousness is floating at this moment, in the sea of love, of life. Turn it up and listen in the most relaxed space that you are able to achieve at this time, let the music take you deeper in to your body and if it feels good maybe even move your body. Imagine that every part of your body is listening to the music, not just your ears but every part of your physical being!

And surrender to the ocean of bliss that is the life we were born to live!

Reframing The Moment: Creating Your Own Mythology.

brain imagesPerception is everything, two people can have exactly the same experience and come away with a completely different story, without either of them being right or wrong. Most of the time this isn’t a particularly conscious process but if you bring in your observer so that you can actually see how your thoughts are creating your experience then you can see how changing your mindset can change what you are perceiving. The world around you remains the same and yet completely different, this is how you can change the past as well as creating the future that you desire.

It can also be a wonderful tool for relieving stress, I have used it on numerous occasions when I am feeling worried or apprehensive about something. A couple of days ago when the horses got out of the gate and we were having to come up with ways of getting in and out without it happening again I was feeling really, really stressed. I knew on some level that it would be alright but it was hard to stop the thoughts going round and round in my head as I lay resting in the early evening before heading off to my overnight shift. So I decided to see the whole situation as an adventure or mythic tale with me as the heroine, my Beloved at my side as we met the challenge of outwitting the horses. It didn’t take away all my worry but made a perceptible difference to how I was feeling.

When I was going through my dark night of the soul some years ago I was really freaking out and feeling overwhelmed by the energies that were moving in me. I navigated through those times in lots of different ways, but there was one time when I was being assailed by negative thoughts and so I sat down and wrote my story as a mythic tale starting from when I was born. I kept writing and continued the story from the moment I was in into the future, the tale became more and more positive and by the time I finished I was feeling wonderful.

Remember there is nothing that you cannot change with this approach, however bad things look you can shift the view with just a small tweak in consciousness. You can move from fear to love, anger to bliss, from ignorance to joyful embrace of the great mystery that is this earthly existence.

So go forth and change the world into what you would like to see and experience, the more of us who do this the closer we all come to a new way of being, the path of the heart.

The Tapestry Of Interconnected Threads.

First Book in the series by Janny Wurts.

First Book in the series by Janny Wurts.

Funny how someone can leave a hole in the world even when you didn’t actually see that much of them, the connections between us all are myriad and can be felt at deep levels of our being. Today I would like to share with you a longish quote from an author called Janny Wurts in one of the books in her War of Light and Shadow series. I forgot to write down which one but highly recommend her fantasy novels, if you like them there are plenty in the series, something like nine books!

“Life formed a vast tapestry, with each myriad thread of consciousness interconnected. Birds in their seasonal migration moved the fine energies of creation here and there in the deep, knowing harmony of their existence. To a sorcerer’s sight, their flight paths traced glowing lines through the element of air, and spun subliminal links of harmony from treetop to treetop. The land’s disparate mantle of quickened awareness was not an unstructured chaos of live forms, but a whole cloth meshed into a fine, lockstepped balance, and tied by vibrations of light.

Plants, trees, and fungi interfaced air and earth in a blanketing tapestry of tuned energy. Nor were minerals inert. Their frozen imprint of individual signatures could be  mapped through refined mage-sight. Even in their most humble manifestation, stones and sand acted as place holders, keeping in timeless, faithful trust the calibrated tones which anchored the chord of the world life force. Rivers, rain, the oceans themselves moved the grand currents of elemental power. Weather cycles cleansed the world’s firmament and refreshed the planetary aura.”

And so she describes the planet Athera, if you could see with that sorcerers sight you might very well see those interconnecting patterns of energy, I tend to feel them rather than see but that there is much more to the world beyond the five senses seems incontrovertible to me.
