Time to write a little on the energies that came in last weekend with the New Moon in Scorpio, and of course there was a solar eclipse too which made it even more powerful. No wonder I had that bad gastro attack, Scorpio is deeply transformative and very emotional, I felt renewed and cleaned out afterwards, and since then there are quite a few things that have been ‘stuck’, that are now flowing. What I find particularly fascinating is the element that the eclipse brought to this mix, it was all about helping us to see where we have been resistant to change, exactly what I am noticing in myself over this past week. I spoke of using EFT (emotional freedom technique) to clear the resistance to using my recent learnings for creating my new lifestyle and for healing myself, and in doing this I’ve become very aware of exactly what that resistance is.
It isn’t exactly new information, but I’m finally at the bedrock of this core belief, and the work I’m currently doing will clear the last of the barrier that has been like a glass ceiling for me all of my life. It says that I’m not good enough and that the things that work for other people to create health and abundance will never work on me, I’m different somehow and everyone else is better than me. Sounds so silly when you say it like that, but that’s what I’ve been carrying around for most of my life, it isn’t surprising that I haven’t been able to fully utilise all the amazing therapies and ideas that have been so abundant in my experience.
So before I even begin to use the Alpha brain techniques I sit down and I tap on my meridians while stating that, “Even though I don’t believe these methods will ever work on me, I totally and completely love, honour and respect the amazing and beautiful person that I am!” And variations on that theme, apart from tapping in the correct places on the body the most important thing is to invest what you are saying with strong emotion. Actually that goes for all of this stuff, for it to work it needs to truly matter to you, remember we are fooling the brain here, and it’s the feeling that gives our thoughts so much power.
I’ve been a master of change all my life, riding the edge and learning how to be happy even while I was creating difficult circumstances that I would then have to somehow navigate. I stand now on the brink of a new chapter, yes I keep going on and on about it I know, but you have to understand this is very exciting for me. I guess my hope is that you will find this inspiring, and then go off and do whatever your new chapter looks like, or maybe you’re already doing it.
What I do know is that our world and our people need us to wake up and to take responsibility for our awesome abilities and gifts, we really truly are the people we have been waiting for.
So be it, so be it, so be it…………..

Embarking upon a journey into the swirling, twirling vortex that is the middle of every second week, slipping in a little footwork practice and a sleep before going off to find my attitude in strong poses and energy complete. Riding the wave of passionate expression I follow the winding path down the mountain and breathe a little sea air before hunkering down in the bunker, a welcoming warm shelter. It’s a matter of balance, of kindness, of care, do just enough to be alive fully but never push yourself beyond your capacity, whatever it may be.
I love riding the edge of what might be possible, testing the limits of how balanced I can be no matter what life may be throwing at me, brain working out as I follow the notes on a musical page and count the beat, rise to the note. Higher functions are operating and all is well as long as I can balance on that narrow edge, teeter a tad by all means but lets stay on the path and keep fanning the fires of creativity, the torrents of energy flowing over the cliffs, emotions letting go of their attachments.
My sea feels calm even when I can see stormy weather up ahead, the waves may be a bit big sometimes but if I can keep that calm centre within me holding it all together, I can ride out any storm. Just as well because I continue to add-on to the pile of what needs to be done by the end of the year, performance, costumes, the mastering of steps that seem to be forever in coming. The seeing, listening and enjoying of much good music, as well as the necessity of keeping the faith for all the Goddesses of the Dance by moving my body to good grooves on a regular basis.
That’s right, it’s supposed to be fun!
Someone should have reminded Judy Garland, here she is doing such a superb job of “Stormy Weather”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zZfv1e2e7ug

There is a stillness and an intensity about summer that sings its siren song through the cells of my body, along with the heat and the shrill sound of the cicadas, a part of me feels itself home. Times when young mind and body moved inside air conditioning to moist heat, to the perfection of the dry, dry warmth, and the cool, cool night. Holidays spent camping when it always seemed to be summer, and the months reached on and on into an endless time of sand and ocean wave, flies and christmas beetles.
Today I can feel a touch of cooler Spring air, yet the Summer rushes apace, couldn’t even properly wait for Winter to wrap up her icy wind and misty mien, she came she went, she is gone. The climate she be a changing as so we are told, how can we come into coherence with all things, that we may know the right thing to do for the much larger picture, reaching all the way to the black hole beyond the milky way. Treat everyone with respect is a good place to start, we all have important gifts to contribute to this beautiful space-time reality that we’ve currently agreed to participate in!
And be present in the moment you are in, mine is a summery flow that stretches out into eternity, it’s a day with no borders from the senses of a child, when summer never ends, or so it seems. And in this moment there is nothing to be stressed about, life is suspended like the dragon-fly in the air, sparkling bright orange in the sunlight before coming to land on the clothes line. Dragon fly brings me messages about transformation and consciously working with the light to create particular reflections, being adaptable and letting the emotions flow and be aligned with the mental body. The orange speaks to me of the sacral chakra and the continuing release and flow of my life force energy, creativity opening up in new pathways, and Aphrodite’s sweet presence warming my core.
Love and harmony to all, ohm shanti, shanti, shanti……….
Here are some summer thoughts from Josh Pyke:

Well I went from nuclear disasters to the habits of highly empathic people and I’m feeling positively inspired by the journey! Even though there may be masses of sleepy people who have no idea of how their world could be slipping away, there are those who not only notice and care, but who are doing something about it. And the ones who are doing the damage are a tiny part of the overall population, I think they know that their days are numbered and are simply trying to rake in as much as they can while they can.
Empathy is a key ingredient as we grow and develop into the future humans that will have a continuing and positive presence on this beautiful planet. And it is a quality that can be developed, I relate strongly to the habits of HEP’s (highly empathic people) and have tended to go in this direction all my life. But anyone can do it, those who are severely disconnected from their emotions are going to have a challenging journey, but I do believe it possible for all people if they have a strong enough desire to go there.
The author of the article at the end of this post, Roman Krznaric, describes the twentieth century as the Age of Introspection and says that the twenty-first should be the Age of Empathy. I agree heartily with this viewpoint, it certainly matches my path through life which was extremely introverted for many years as I dove deep in my healing journey. Then slowly but surely I began to get the sense that I needed to move more into connection with others, the messages kept coming, and over time that is the path I have taken. My very special country town has helped me to reach a point where I am fulfilling this part of my life in a way that truly amazes me at times, in a good way!
There is a lot more I could say on this topic but I will save it for future posts, in the meantime have a read of this inspiring article, it has links to lots of grass-roots movements that are helping to create fundamental change in the world. A wonderful resource!

I’ve had a request to write about the subject of how to open to life’s blessings, it’s a theme you will find running through a lot of my posts, but I think I will try to pop in something specific on this from time to time from now on. The first thing that popped into my mind when I read this comment was gratitude, simply being thankful for the good things that you do have in your life. In bleak moments this can be challenging, but there’s always something you can find, it might be the fact that you have all your limbs and air to breathe, or maybe it’s the fact that the doom you were certain was on its way didn’t actually arrive today!
I feel gratitude most days, but with this time of intense energies we have been going through, there have been times when I have struggled to find that place in myself, so don’t give yourself a hard time if you can’t manage to get there. Be present with whatever emotions are moving through you, and be prepared to look through the chink of light that will appear if you can allow those feelings to be released. There is always a light at the end of the tunnel no matter how long the journey may seem, and as the light begins to seep in it may become easier to genuinely feel that sense of gratitude.
Whatever you choose to focus on will grow, so that attention on what is good in your life will help the positive aspects to develop and grow stronger. You could formalise this process by keeping a gratitude diary, every day write down all the things you feel grateful for, if you have a friend to buddy up with so that you are each doing this and sharing with each other, it can become even more powerful. Not only keeps you on track in terms of the discipline of doing the process, but it also brings in the power of being witnessed.
Here is a brief meditation from Deepak Chopra on gratitude, he’s an inspirational teacher who has helped me a lot in the past to understand difficult concepts like quantum physics, not that I can really get my brain fully around that particular subject, but he definitely made it more accessible for my unscientific mind! He has a wonderful way with words, if you are not familiar with him why not go googling, he has also written many books.
