Trusting……….that I am always connected to the source of all things, my heart blazing a path that wends its way through all kinds of landscapes. At times the way may be littered with rocks and pot holes, challenging me to be like water and to flow over and through without losing the essence that I am. Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death……..I shall not falter, indeed I will embrace each ending as it doth present it’s face to me. And in the letting go of unnecessary things my life force will find new channels, the power of love and creativity making a fire that will burn forever.
Beginning always in stillness……….the vast empty space of creation beckons me unto the void, where there is nothing………. and yet all of the potential for manifestation lies in this emptiness. No need to do anything, being unfolds without direction and while I may open to desire, while I may know what I think I want, always shall I surrender to the higher wisdom that knows truth in a way that my ego can never imagine.
Bringing together my desire and the urging of spirit, my inspiration bursts forth and the bars of my prison are melting into joy…….glittering threads of destiny weaving a tapestry that sings a new song, as a fresh day dawns. The need to know is a fetter that shall chain me no more, I trust life, I trust myself, I am whole………… I will ever be a part of the spirit of God, Goddess, of all that is…….love is an ocean in which I shall swim for evermore, in and out-of-body, ’tis the spirit that goes on eternal, the flame that has no end, and no beginning……….
My gratitude overflows……….and I am at peace.

My recent trip away demonstrated to me once again that part of my role is to be a bridge between different worlds, in a shamanic sense we are talking about otherworldly realms. But in societal terms it is about moving in circles that almost feel like they are on different planets, even though they are in the same city. Rich and poor is an obvious contrast but even within the one strand you will find a huge variety in how people think about the meaning of life.
What I do encounter in the city on the rare occasions when I do go there, is the sense that a lot of the time people are actually trying to avoid thinking about meaning and purpose in relation to themselves. This is of course endemic in the culture but somehow it feels a lot stronger in a place where there are so many people packed into the environment. Everyone is rushing around until its time to settle in front of the television and turn off the brain, more of a dulling down in my opinion rather than relaxation.

Of course not everyone is looking to play their part in the latest zombie movie, I spent a few days with a friend who is a ray of sunshine in the cityscape. She held a toning night for me where I got to meet other amazing souls and connect with old friends. We toned for a woman in her nineties who was passing over at that time and it was incredibly powerful, I was toning with two of my toning buddies the next day and we felt it when she passed.
So if your destiny is to be in an urban landscape there is no reason why it cannot be a positive and uplifting journey, there is much to be done to change the way we do cities and the right people need to be there playing their part. For me though, the country is where I must be, this is where the land and I will sing together, nestled in the bossom of a wondrous and caring community.
May the land and I be one, forever and ever, amen……………..HO!
The princess was disenchanted with love and so she turned her back upon the thronging mill of suitors and retired to her ivory tower for many years. There she studied strange and arcane matters with teachers from far off lands, she purified herself body and soul, and for hours she would meditate in utter stillness. The princess listened to the voice of her soul and communicated with faeries and angels, she talked to trees and to the birds perched on their branches.
At long last she felt ready to enter the world again and the whole kingdom breathed a sigh of relief, she was the youngest and most beautiful child in the royal family, and all had missed her sorely. A ball and a banquet was held to welcome her back, and the noble men of the court competed with each other to escort her to this fine occasion. She cared for none of them, but was drawn to a stranger with dark eyes and hair, who exuded a magnetic charm that she could not resist.
He wove such a spell on her that she could think of nothing else for days, for months, he would visit her often and was charming at times, and at other times cold. All her knowledge and training did not prevent her falling under the spell of this dark magician, once again it seemed she was lost to her family and to her kingdom.
In her despair the princess turned to a wise woman who had been one of her teachers and asked her, “What shall I do mother dear, all my peace has fled and the great mysteries no longer hold out their promise to me?” The old woman told the princess to lie down and she took her on a soul journey through her mind and imagination, together they went to the dark citadel where the magician kept his treasures. They found the blue jewel that he had stolen from her being and restored it to its proper place in the power centre of her throat.
Upon waking from this trance the princess found that the spell had broken, and her thoughts were her own again, once again she could speak her truth and explore the great mysteries, enjoy the sunshine, and run in the snow. She decided in that moment that she would never again give her power away to another soul, that if it were her destiny to marry, it would only be to one who loved her for her strength and power, and who would always be content for her to be the great soul that she indeed was.
And she did indeed meet such a man, but that is a tale for another time………….
