Well there has been a percolation indeed! Our beautiful exploration of the Divine Dance between the masculine and the feminine was well received and I personally had a wonderful dance, exactly what I have been missing. I can’t be the only one, we might have to put some focus into getting the message out further afield. After all we are part of a region, part of the state, the country, our planet Earth, or Gaia as she is sometimes known. Which leads me perfectly into the next part of my journey, a flow that is unfolding so beautifully, my deep sense of how I am connected to everything.

And this is going to be the essence of the theme of our next dance which will occur on the night of the full moon in Gemini, communication features heavily with this star sign. So our theme of the interconnectedness of all things is a great concept for that full moon energy to flow into our ocean of love. The playlists tend to be rather organic but I do think that humour is always good here and there, one can get a bit serious sometimes. And some good solid dancing to groovy rhythms and soulful beat, music you can be deliciously lost in, body surrendered to the sound, you become the sound in movement.

Mmmmmm……… I reckon there could be some pretty wild music and fun to be had dancing your heart and your soul, letting the body guide you in what will support you. I look forward to creating the sonic landscape with my Beloved, we always have so much fun! And we learn a lot too, stuff comes up and we engage with a process to clear it. There are lots of ways to move energy in the body, our favourite therapy is our relationship as a spiritual practice. And sometimes we might simply open our hearts and talk to each other, being witnessed on a deep level is very powerful.

Dancing Lovers.

I could go on but it’s time to go now, there are many gardens to tend and I need to go to a different one now. Farewell my virtual friends!

Aho!

Connect Or Die: Feeling Gaia’s Love.

shaman spiralTime did not exist in my black hole in the ground, and so I’ve no idea how long I spent feeling and then watching my fears go speeding out of my body into the waiting arms of the earth. My memories of the rest of that time are not so clear except for moments here and there, I tried hard to stay awake but alas I did fall asleep.

That sleep gave me another of the gifts that I received, in my dream I was hovering above the graves looking down on the men who were standing watch sitting around fires. One of them looked up and seemed to be looking straight at me and I shot up into the air and I flew, I rarely remember my dreams and I have never flown in one before or since. It’s also the only ocassion that I have had an experience of moving out of my body and watching what was going on around me while I was unconscious.

I have a confession to make at this point, I snore! Well I certainly did back then anyway, one of the women who came out of the ground for a time said that the sound of my snores rising out of the earth, was immensely comforting. She was the bravest of us all in my opinion, for she went back in after being overcome by her fears. She figured that if I was so relaxed I could go to sleep in there, that maybe there wasn’t really so much to worry about after all.

As the faint tinges of light began to appear I knew my time in the earth was coming to an end, and all I wanted to do was to stay in this wonderfully comfortable, safe space that I had found, once the terror was gone. My bladder behaved beautifully and I had found such peace cradled in the bossom of the Mother.When the wooden cover came off I felt as though I was seeing light for the first time in my life, the trees and other plants, the sky, the sounds, all standing out in sharp relief. For a time I wandered in the bush, exploring my new senses and feeling the wonder of being alive and being connected to every single living creature on Gaia’s earth.

Mother Earth MutuhuWe are all a part of Gaia, whether we can feel it or not, if you are on the planet in a physical body then she is supporting you no matter what you do. We need to even up the exchange and begin to offer back the same support to her, not that she couldn’t get by without us, but she loves us, and sincerely hopes that we will not make ourselves extinct.

Thank you Mother, we are doing our best to grow up, with any luck it isn’t too late!

Faeries Fly At The Enchanted Gathering.

magical_fairyAll of the faeries are gathering once again for the Enchantment, from moving haze (see my last post), to laser lights and rainbows of frequencies that carry love and light to all the corners of the planet. Re-reading this post from March last year I feel enormous excitement about this next adventure, wearyness will turn into delight as joy surges through the cells of my moving body. The music starts at 4pm on the saturday and finishes at 4pm on the Sunday, by the time you read this it will be all over. See you all next week, love and tons of blissings to everybody!

fairycircle

There is a part of me that doesn’t want to ever come back from the Enchanted Warehouse, the trick is to work out how to bring it with me! All that focused faery, rainbow magic that carries the seeds for healing all the worlds many times over, we need it in this reality and we need it badly. You can find that magic in many forms in all sorts of odd places in the world these days, the love virus is spreading and the evil ones are losing momentum as more of us WAKE UP!

I can anchor huge energies for the sake of global coherence, through the movement of my bodies, physical, mental, spiritual and emotional. Can I do that for myself as the soul, for a moment, stares into the abyss of abandonment, the cliffs of despair, losing the lift under my wings for the merest moment and then catching an updraft and once again soaring into the great blue. Can I allow the new harmonic to truly unmask me and am I ready to face what lies beneath, will it contain my heart’s deepest desire.

I am lost, and in that losing am I found, over and over again, its relational, its spiritual, it’s the pain and the joy of being alive, it’s the heightening that comes with uncertainty. How wild is my imagination, not wild enough mutters my medicine woman and she takes me by the scruff and rolls me around in her mortar and pestle until at last my armour is all gone. Then we sit she and I and we tone and we growl, and we bring forth a harmonic that hasn’t been felt in this reality for some time, I don’t understand it even yet but I know that it’s incredibly important and I must remember it, it’s sonically imprinted on the bones of my body.

It’s as if the entire fabric of my being is being held taut with a yearning that comes from so deep within there are no words to express it, I don’t actually know what will satisfy this space inside, no idea. Dear Gaia, you know me better than I know myself, hey girlfriend, can you guide me to the best possible place for opening into this new-found wonder, and I’m not talking bras!

Simply Be: Let Gaia Be Your Guide!

sacred sensual fireFlickering flames caressing the mysterious and ever-changing shape, from a burning ship with the intergalactic council on board, to a mountain with eyes that pop as he receives people’s questions. A circle of fire full of magic and life force, a sacred space for me to fall into on an ever spiraling journey through the ins and the outs of inter-dimensional, trans-galactic travel! When I relax into being my entire organic self in this body now I can experience the most exquisite pleasure in the simplest of things, from vacuuming to making love.

sacred fire dancer

Letting go of the need to be anyone or to do anything, connecting with the part of me that is beyond personality or particular quirks, the essential light that is Who I Be. Knowing that there is a balance that I am seeking in all of this, a way of remembering that I am a part of all things in vivid colour, without blowing my mind. Finding the paths that can help me to navigate these strange future spaces that are beckoning, feeling my way into a new way of being in the world, of being in relationship, of being in life.

The path can be a little confusing at times, that moment when you let go of control is liberating as you acknowledge that there is intelligence in Gaia that will help you to always know where to put the next step as you walk into a new dawning of life. I need know nothing but that I am safe and warm and my heart is beating strong, the soup is being served and the fire burns away merrily before my upturned feet.

Life is good!

 

 

 

A Simple Life Full Of Soul.

happy boys playingI’m feeling very grounded in the ordinary everyday aspects of living, there is something very satisfying in cleaning and creating beauty and order in the space that one inhabits. Of course it helps if you live in paradise, many people in the world don’t have safe and secure places to live in, I dream of a world where no-one is hungry and everybody is safe and able to consider what they may desire beyond fulfilling basic needs.

So much of human ingenuity and creativity is spent just making ends meet, reflecting on the soul’s needs is something that most people simply don’t find the time for. And yet it is this very process that is required for transformation to occur, without a shift in consciousness there will be no change and Gaia will shake us off like a dog shedding water after its bath.

“…….care of the soul 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. ……..it has to do with cultivating a richly expressive and meaningful life at home and in society. It is also a challenge because it requires imagination from each of us. In therapy we lay our problems at the feet of a professional who is supposedly trained to solve them for us. In care of the soul we ourselves have both the task and the pleasure of organizing and shaping our lives for the good of the soul.”

Care Of The Soul, Thomas Moore, p4.

pink spirit soul

It is a challenge that may seem overwhelming to those who actually contemplate it and it certainly isn’t easy, but it is the only path that will truly satisfy the deepest parts of who we are. And when we are shaping our lives from a place of soulfulness we will probably find that a lot of the ‘things’ that we thought were so important, are not necessary at all.

Ahhhhhh………..the simple life!

The Journey Into Pleasure In All Things.

Lookout in the rain 2It feels a bit like I am sitting in a poem with each stage like a stanza telling the tale of water moving over the land. Looking out upon the Glasshouse Mountains  in the distance I watch the grey veil approaching as the mood shifts from warm sunlight to a touch of chill, back and forth. The rain which has been foretelling it’s coming in random stray drops finally begins to fall in a steady pattern as the sun shines through the sheets of water. It’s heavy for a time and I turn on the car’s engine and switch on the windscreen wipers, watching the motion back and forth and resting in the vibrating embrace of my metal steed.

Lookout after the rain

The water continues it’s journey over the land and so it passes me, ahead the veil is gone and sunshine and shadow outline the sweeping greens of the landscape, the odd and compelling shapes of those mountains. The wind is whistling and swirling as I watch a tree with a spiky afro that describes a subtle and yet extravagant dance.

Lookout afro tree

Even though my feet do not literally touch the earth I feel her, the feminine energy of this land is strong and many strong women are drawn to this place. But she is there for all so please call on her for the support you need, wherever you may be she will be present, no matter how subtle she is always here. After all, where could she go? Gaia is the universal intelligence that holds together what we know as our existence on this earthly plane. She is wise and if we allow her to do so, she is very good at keeping a balance between all the different realms.

As I sit here the sun has become strong again, shining its glory upon my neck and shoulder, flooding my cells with strength and determination. I’ve got a good feeling about what I am co-creating with my Beloved, Apollo fills me with optimism and hope, and my intuition whispers to me to do this, and do that.

lookout after the rain 2

Challenges will always come along but they can be instruments of diversion, taking us to places we might never have gone otherwise. And also providing more opportunity to feel pleasure as I release more and more of the holdings that couldn’t let me feel it all. And that isn’t just about sex you know, it can be in sitting in nature and connecting with the land you are on. The more deeply you are able to ‘see’ into things, the more pleasure you can feel. Why wouldn’t you want to take that journey!

Oh and by the way, all the photos are by me this time!

Talking To The Trees: Interdependance from Avatar to Gaia.

To be honest I have always believed that plants communicate with each other, the other creatures we share this planet with are often much closer to the energetic balance required to live in harmony with our environment. And more sensitive in many ways to the spiritual reality that underlies every single part of the outside physical reality that so many try to insist is all that there is. I for one am glad that there is more to existence than the current consensual reality we have all agreed to share at this time, and that there are people out there in different roles reminding us of this truth.

At the end of this paragraph you can take a look at a scientific explanation of the forest eco-system which almost borders on the spiritual, the meta-physical even gets a mention and one can see the reverence for life on this planet emanating from an obviously very practical person. The trees of all species communicate with each other through the system of roots and the fungi that grow there, moving carbon and nitrogen back and forth according to who needs it. It is a harmonious system if we allow it to be, even dying trees are giving back their legacy to the forest until they finally collapse.

James Cameron in ‘Avatar’ gave us a lovely image of this concept with the native people being able to plug into the planetary consciousness in a number of different ways. I loved the tree of souls in particular where the Na’vi connect with their ancestors through this energetic network that operates outside of time and space, and so can be a container for the souls of those who have passed on.

The world IS a Magical Place to live in if we can but find the eyes to see it!

Aho!

A New Age.

Pure joy rushes through my body as I move to the beat of the drum, all care lifted from my sight as the frequency of the sound clears away the illusion of separation. I dance and every part of me sings as the ocean of love swallows me whole, along with all the other dancers we are carried away from the world of the every day, to a place that is what we are becoming.

transparent-bodies-moving1

Humanity rises from the ashes of its own stupidity, the rape of earth and callous decimation of those deemed unfit to be a part of the so-called master race, the loss of soul that tears us all apart. The sleepers wake and the Earth smiles as her latest tenants manage to avoid the eviction notice she was ready to serve upon them, reluctantly but with no choice as we ignored and disrespected her wants and needs, indeed even our own as we marched on our path to destruction.

At last the pure potential of the shining light that lies within the core of every person upon the planet, may radiate out without fear or doubt, we are saved. Not by some caped crusader but by ourselves, the ordinary and the everyday are our heroes and heroines now, and everyone is on the A list as the Golden Age sweeps away bureaucracy and judgement. Lawyers and dentists relax into the gift economy along with the doctors and psychologists, politicians doing real work now from their recently discovered heart space, new territory for most.

compassion2

The cosmos receives our radiance and all beings everywhere smile to see  such beauty and wonder as we have become, Gaia is in love with herself and so are we, falling into the ocean of love each and every one of us. Some may need swimming lessons, but the light workers are here to guide the path of the novice and soon we will all be masters of the craft of being ourselves in all our glory.

So be it, so be it, so be it……………….

Persephone And The Princess.

Washing in, washing out, washing in………..the sun is playing hide and seek and the rain can’t decide if it wants to be a sun shower or not. Birds make bell-like sounds and the wind rushes through clear air, leaves of many varied green sway and dip, receiving the wind’s caress as if it were a lover’s touch……….. The house creaks and groans and smoke pours from the chimney as the stove hungrily consumes it’s meal of seasoned wood.

I carry my mind’s burden, it feeds down into my belly which trembles and feels unsure of itself, the cure is action, it is stillness, the remedy is to be here, to be present in nature’s cathedral. Settling in to my fairy cottage I put my airy threads and clothing rich into a cupboard shaped like a triangle, the slim wooden panels sloping down, I clear the space so that I may be in it. The altar is two lovers and a heart-shaped labyrinth, it is rose quartz and carnelian, lapis and rhodochrosite, there is a seed that was planted 18 months ago, ready to open to connection with another.

I am a princess, my bed is enfolded by filmy white that will keep me safe from the blood suckers that crave my sweet, royal blood, although it is not blue, it is red. Above my resting place the ceiling points at the sky with wooden limbs that arch gracefully, giving me a sense of symmetry and the knowledge that all is right in my world. All that I need to do is to see what is right in front of me, and how hard can that be?

fairy-princess

I sip calm tea that comes from the Water Dragon, and feel the peace it channels into my beingness, sitting in stillness while the wind blows and my calm is complete, my belly at rest. I am grateful to the flow of spirit, that always guides me to wherever it is I need to be, sometimes the path may be stormy but the sun always comes out eventually and seems brighter for the darkness that has been.

Blessed be, blessed be, calling upon Aphrodite and Lilith, upon Demeter and Persephone, who is also a chook by the way, I am sure the Goddess is honoured to have her name bestowed upon such a pretty little thing! Mother Earth loves all her creatures, even us, we who do not always respect her, thank you mother, thank you Gaia……………blissings to all life.

Naughty Faeries.

On my enchanted adventure I ventured into forbidden territory, sugar, grain, Cadbury chocolate and coffee, I gave myself permission to be naughty and hoped that I would not be trapped in the world of faery forever, having supped of faery food. Actually the truth is that the faeries probably eat food that gives them plenty of life force, maybe it is the power of that energy that has given birth to the stories of the dangers of eating anything while in the realm of magic and enchantment. Having sat at the table with Titania and Oberon, our present reality cannot be anything but a pale imitation of life’s glorious potential. Like a beautiful photo that has faded with time, we become accustomed to a lesser reality, so much dimmer than the place we inhabit as children.

The Fairies' Banquet by John Anster

The Fairies’ Banquet by John Anster

A little bit of naughtiness will do you no harm, but for those whose daily fare is processed and full of sugar and nasty chemicals, the dulling down is happening quite literally in the cells of the body. I strayed off the path for just four days and even so I could feel my sugar and carb addict beginning to wake up, the more you have the more you want. I came off it slowly with the help of some chocolate halva (Oh my Goddess what a treat!) and my green smoothies are incredibly important for bringing me back into alignment.

For those of you who struggle with cravings the news is good, if the former Junk Food Queen of Parap can become pure, anyone can! From the very beginning as I moved on to solids I wanted everything that was unhealthy, I dealt with teenage trauma and loss by drowning my sorrows as only a true alcoholic can and smoking furiously whatever I could get my hands on.

The path to redemption has been a long road of shifts and changes on all levels of my being, physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. You deal with one layer at a time, making the changes that are possible at that time, and slowly but surely you begin to build up better habits. For me the emotional aspect of food has been very important, I no longer have that ‘need’ to fill the empty space within me by stuffing my face.

Dear Gaia, thank you for providing me with such a dazzling array of sustenance in the form of the fruits and the vegetables that abound on this gorgeous planet. And thank you for helping me to connect with that leafy, aromatic realm of taste and texture, heightening my senses until I positively reel with ecstatic delight!
