Moving Haze: Taking Care Of Myself.

This is going to be a very short post, I’ve just spent two days moving out of our bush paradise back into town and I’ve hardly stopped all day and now it’s time to take care of myself. I don’t want to re-blog something without some kind of good reason so I decided to just be totally honest with you and make this really brief and to the point.

There are times when you have to let go of things you would like to achieve in order to take care of yourself, on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual, whatever you may need. Yes I could have had a post prepared early but it didn’t happen, if you stick with me and read future blogs they will come from someone whose brain is actually functioning. I promise you it will be fun, informative and sometimes even a bit profound.

Cycles And Shifts Bringing Us Closer Connection.

moontime connectionHello and yes I will continue the story of the commoner princess by and by, but for today’s sharing I want to talk about different states of consciousness, a topic that has fascinated me for years. For women it is probably easier in some ways to comprehend the ways in which we shift from one state to another, at least in theory. We have a monthly shift which is our moon time, and even though women in western culture are not taught to value this phenomenon, it is an opportunity to become more sensitive and able to perceive inner transformation.

It’s not often I have anything that could be described as PMT but I’ve felt my menstrual flow on the way for the last few days and found myself over sensitive to physical touch and very emotional. My Beloved and I ended up going from passion to me being held as I felt almost like crying, distressed but for no perceivable reason. He was rather excited but could feel where I was and accepted with great grace that I had things moving and he needed to hold space for me rather than make love.

The next day I watched lots of “Charmed” episodes and didn’t do too much and my Beloved was there when I needed him to be and I was left to myself as needed, quite perfect! A perfectly normal situation for many couples, can you see how ignoring the feminine shift into pre-moon time could create arguments and separation, imagine how often that has actually happened to people. Recognising cycles and accepting what they bring to us, responding to what is in the present instead of what we think should be there, here is an approach that can bring two people closer together. There is nothing more attractive than someone who really gets you!

Shape-shifter, shaman, prophetic visionary, healer. Oh, hello everything that I desire to embody, and do so, even as I am a little bit freaked out/scared/wonder why I couldn’t've just been some ‘more normal’ instead. http://www.janeofardis.com/tag/goddesses/

Of course tuning into cycles is going to be an asset whether you are in a relationship or not, it can help you to be in the energetic flow of your life, wherever that journey may be heading for you.

Raising Awareness For Social Transformation.

march in march brisbaneI don’t often talk about politics on this blog, my focus tends more to be on consciousness itself and the potential for transformation, without this first step the necessary changes can’t really happen anyway. But here in Australia we just had at least 100,000 people marching to display their vote of no confidence in the current government, an event that has been largely ignored by the mainstream media. From what I can gather on social media the protests were peaceful and full of ordinary everyday people who are unhappy about a government that gives to the rich and takes from the poor, that treats asylum seekers as if they were criminals.  If I hadn’t been working I would have been there myself.

Here is an article from someone who was at the protest the next day at the nation’s capital Canberra: http://www.independentaustralia.net/politics/politics-display/canberra-march-in-march-social-media-made-flesh,6288

For me the path continues to be working with shifts in consciousness, mine own and to be a support for others when I have the opportunity, this will create change but I do believe that we also need the people out there doing the protests It’s just like the way you might approach the healing of a physical issue in your body, attending to the spiritual, emotional and mental causes may lead to a complete return to health. But along the way you may need to have particular herbs or physical exercises or stretches for the body, all of the necessary steps are important.

physical emotional spiritual

For change in our society to occur there needs to be a fundamental shift in consciousness and that can only come from the raising of awareness. This increase in awareness can come from many different sources and the most important part happens deep within the soul itself, but the triggers can be events like these marches that have happened all around the country.

May the Shift come soon, with peace and harmony walking hand in hand.

Tuning Into Your Inner Road Map: Finding Perspective.

spiritual energyIn order to clear, things have to get stirred up in the first place, sometimes in ecstatic spaces and sometimes with a fair bit of discomfort. It’s all a part of the process and the more you are able to accept ‘what is’, the less you suffer. Easy to say not always so simple to put into practice, I try to remember to surrender and let the energy keep moving, breathing into it seems to help.

There’s always a lesson too, a map to be read in our cells of emotional, spiritual, mental and physical fields, all holding the stuff of which we are made. Learn to be a reader who can tune in to the finer vibrations, it enriches life in ways beyond imagining as you allow yourself to be there in full.

Being present in all my fullness when there is fear in my belly is pretty intense, it helps to bring the light of awareness into the picture. In that moment I know that however dominating that fear and tension may be, that  it won’t last forever. I think of being in my lover’s arms and melting into that security and it becomes a bit easier to stay with that discomfort in my being.

Getting a bit of perspective can also help if you are ever feeling a bit overwhelmed by what life is throwing at you, when you can see the kind of life that some people live your own problems can seem so much smaller. This video from Carl Sagan’s TV show “Cosmos: A Personal Voyage” certainly puts things in a very sharp perspective, enjoy:

Pleasuring Into Ecstasy: Slow It Down Sweetheart!

PinkOshoFlowerPoemYou know there are some blogs out there that really keep it simple and focus on one big project, like cooking your way through a famous french recipe book over a whole year. And then there’s someone like me, exploring every aspect of consciousness she can send her awareness into, moving fluidly and sometimes for no apparent reason from one project to another, and then back again!

Well I’m back to where I had got to in “Tantric Orgasm For Women” and really enjoying being able to read and find that sometimes an open body and heart is as good as any book. But it is an excellent text-book and very inspiring too, relaxation is the key and I can attest to the value of letting go of tension and generally slowing everything down. So you do need to be able to trust your Beloved, even then you may be holding tensions you are not aware of, so a safe space to be together in is crucial, and that is emotional and spiritual space, not just the physical.

soulmates

The more that you let go, the more you can allow the body to guide the experiential navigation of two energies coming together, you become more sensitive to subtle energy, sensuality is heightened, which can only be a good thing! And anything that you do comes out of a place of non-attachment.

“Action is an overflowing of energy; action is in this moment, a response, unprepared, unrehearsed. The whole existence meets you, confronts you and a response simply comes. The birds are singing and suddenly you start singing-it is not activity. Suddenly it happens. Suddenly you find it is happening, that you have started humming-this is action.”

The Right Kind Of Crazy!

Be careful what you ask for……..for the Gods may give it to you, how many times have you heard that phrase, one could also say be careful of your thoughts and language, because your brain will take it as the truth. When you consider some of the internal dialoguing that goes on for many of us, the logical outcome is a life that has nothing to do with what we really want in our lives. I’ve written on this subject before when I talked about manifesting a relationship in my life, that was “Seducing the Frontal Lobe” on April 9 2013.

I am now going to humbly admit that I didn’t do what I said I would, if you were reading my posts in the time following you will be aware that I was being triggered in HUGE ways and so was on a bit of an emotional roller coaster. Although in a way I was working on my stuff around relationship, just not in the context of being ‘in’ a partnership, the upshot of it all is that a lot of what was in the way of me allowing myself to receive love was cleared away in that process.

You can read about how re-wiring the brain can create an illness like Bulimia by checking out Shaye’s recovery website, this basic principle can be applied to the creation of any habits, good or bad.

But as far as changing the neural pathways by fooling the brain into thinking that what I want in my life is actually here now, that I didn’t do. To briefly recap, the brain will believe anything that you can imagine strongly enough, if you look at an object a particular part of the brain will fire up, imagine looking at the same object and that part of your brain will light up just as if it was actually there. Joe Dispenza talks about this in “Evolve Your Brain” and he reckons you need to spend an hour a day creating your vision, using all your senses.

I’m currently doing a course that is based on the same information, it is about going into an Alpha brain state and then using visualisation techniques to create a picture of what it is that you want. Of course all the theory in the world is worth nothing if you don’t do something with it, that’s the point I find myself at in this moment. I need very much to make certain changes in my life if I am to continue as a person on this planet and I need to change the way I do things if I want to get a different result. You might remember my favourite definition of insanity, doing things the same way and expecting a different outcome.

Let’s hope I’m the right kind of crazy in this case! More on this subject in my next post, love to you all until then!!

Here is an interview with Dr Joe Dispenza, I spent a day listening to him talk once and he is not only inspiring but also a lovely and very humble man, enjoy!

An Extraordinary Ordinary Life.

This is the age of the quick fix, feeling a bit down and low in energy? Why that’s easy to solve, there are plenty of advertisements out there telling you how to fill that empty space, everything from the latest i Phone to food and alcohol, tv programs, the list is endless. But have you noticed that this constant need to acquire stuff doesn’t actually seem to produce happiness, you would imagine that wealthy people must live in a state of ecstasy according to this credo but the fact of the matter is that it just isn’t so.

As long as we search outside of ourselves for meaning we are going to continue to come up short, the true journey begins within, and the outcome is not about fixing anything.

“So, the first point to make about care of the soul is that it is not primarily a method of problem solving. Its goal is not to make life problem-free, but to give ordinary life the depth and value that come with soulfulness”

Care Of The Soul, Thomas Moore, p4.

I made the decision about 20 years ago that I needed to start integrating my spiritual life into my everyday living, otherwise why bother? It’s been a long journey in that period of time and I’m still very much a work in progress, but I think I can safely say that there have been huge improvements. I learned very slowly over time to love myself as I am, and found methods to let go of the emotional charge held in my body that had me reacting to life’s events rather than responding. If you’ve been with me for a while then you’ve heard quite a bit about all of that.

Time now for a fresh start on this journey, I spoke a few posts ago about my sense that I have come to the end of a chapter, and that’s still very much how I’m feeling. There is clearing out of anything that no longer serves me in this process, but even more there is a sense of building and creating the new chapter that is opening up, not only for me I believe but for the whole of humanity. I’m going to be a student over the next few weeks with the focus very much on this subject, so stay posted for any useful insights that may come my way!

“…..the goal is a richly elaborated life, connected to society and nature, woven into the culture of family, nation, and globe. The idea is not to be superficially adjusted, but to be profoundly connected in the heart to ancestors and to living brothers and sisters in all the many communities that claim our hearts.”

Care Of The Soul, Thomas Moore, Introduction: p xviii.
