And so the story continues and our hero and heroine go on an intrepid inner journey to find their compelling vision! In the course of this epic adventure they have fun, get scared, and become even more deeply connected than they already were. Something I am learning about love and connection is that there is no limit, at least not one that I have noticed in our two years together, and in that time I have gone more deeply into love than ever before. It truly is the gift that keeps on giving and cradles me regardless of what may be going on in my everyday reality. And from this strong and beautiful place our shared vision has been born in a very tangible form.
So you heard it here first, there is a new brand on the way and it is called “The Love Bubble Presents!” My Beloved and I are the creators of this particular bubble, we heard it reflected back to us for long enough that we decided that maybe it is a good name for our job on the planet. So there is a bit of work to be done before we start putting out some information about this project but if you want to catch up with us before Christmas and you are in Maleny or Brisbane or the Sunshine Coast, come to the next Ecstatic Dance. https://www.facebook.com/groups/malenydance/ Otherwise you can wait and tune in for dharma, meditation and movement, all in one class with two awesome facilitators. And that’s all I’m prepared to put in print at this moment in time.
And I’m living in the midst of great beauty and the westering sun is glowing in the sky and nature’s bright pageant draws me out into the place where I am in this very moment. So I will say goodbye and look forward to connecting with you next week my lovelies! Namaste…..
And if you are not on Facebook then click here if you want to read about our Ecstatic Dance Events that happen once a month. You will find the details of when and where and how much!
Life continues to be interesting, not crisis exactly but with that frisson of opportunity and danger. Sometimes a blessing and at times a seeming curse my sensitivity helps me navigate through the energetic currents even as it means feeling more deeply. That might be a bit scary at first especially if you aren’t used to it and even when you let go of the fear you are sometimes left with pure discomfort. Something that can be endured in a spirit of clearing, as strong energies are triggered and then move through my system in a variety of ways. Being sick with the flu for three weeks for example and then as that moves off my bladder issues suddenly flare up. Guess I am still playing host to a colony of resistant E-Coli bacteria, at least I know what to do now and it doesn’t involve antibiotics.
There are moments when you wonder what it’s all for but luckily there are also many moments when I know exactly what is so good about being alive in this moment of time that I am existing in. I have found a solid foundation of being happy and content in my life even when there are other more difficult energies moving towards transformation. Through the constant sea of change I always have my Beloved, a relationship that is constantly growing and changing and becoming deeper. I call my Beloved my rock even though he is not always stable, neither am I for that matter but when you make cracks it is possible to go deeper. I particularly like the bits where progress and understanding comes through experiencing bliss through pleasure in love.
Love is the sea I like to swim in most of all, whether it be in love-making, dance and connecting with other beautiful people. Love is all you need, aho!
My Beloved and I are shifting into a new phase of our sacred union and it comes at a time when we are preparing for our very private commitment ceremony. So why am I telling you about it? Because it is incredibly significant to me at this time and I try always to write authentically from my heart in this space. You don’t need to know the details but I can tell you about what it means to me. We’ve been talking about having a ceremony for a very long time but it is only as it comes closer that I am feeling the shift that it represents.
Deeper and deeper I go following the guidance of my softly open heart, always there is a deeper place to go to. In my experience there is no end to love, it keeps opening and saying yes, even when things get hard. And we have had a few challenges lately, sometimes it feels as though we are teenagers trying to work out who we are and in a way that’s actually the truth of the matter. At a time when people are ‘supposed’ to be all settled we are searching for who we truly are and living on the smell of an oily rag as we do so.
But even at moments when it feels like everything is going wrong we always have each other. Without blame or unconscious projections you make sure not to sabotage the greatest support that you have, the person who loves you unreservedly. So when you are experiencing uncomfortable feelings try not to look for someone to blame. Sit with the feelings and if you have the courage to stay with that process they will eventually move. As you drop deeper you will uncover inner treasures that may amaze and delight you, possibly even confront you a little. Particularly as you begin to discover just how incredible you are when you allow all that trivial crap to fall away.
This poem is very dear to us both and expresses the love that we share so very beautifully, I hope you enjoy these exquisite words from Sally Cutler:
In the garden…
I promise I will always dance with you in the garden.
I promise to always honour your beauty.
I promise to recognise your divinity.
I promise to look after you, even when it’s hard.
I promise to always be with you, in all your exquisite flaws.
I promise to know you are love,
I promise to forgive you when you forget.
I promise my soul to you in this body.
I promise to show you your true self over and over again,
in the rising of the sun and the turning of the earth.
I promise when you need me, I’ll be right there,
in the soil under your feet and the sweet rhythm of your heartbeat.
I promise to stand as you under the stars.
I promise you are always light.
I promise I will always dance with you in the garden.
If you keep saying yes to things that sound exciting you will further your cause even if not a one comes to pass in the everyday tangible world. Of course some of them will but there can be times when simply considering an idea is enough to get energy moving, even if it ends up going in a different direction to where you started. My Beloved and I were considering the possibility of sharing a market stall at a festival and we had a meeting to talk about it that was fun and inspiring. In the end we aren’t going to do it but I have some positive energy moving from that experience that can now flow into other projects.
Just as well there are lots of positive bits popping up in the constant sea of change that still appears to be the energetic conditions of this particular time. The home environment that my Beloved and I are currently living in is not conducive to our being grounded and centred. Through nobody’s fault we are temporarily sharing space and for us it makes it much noisier than we are accustomed to. Even though I love music I often just have silence, especially when in a quiet place. And I haven’t watched television for 15 years!
But it is giving me good reminders about mindfulness and how spiritual practices can really support us when we are going through tough times. I spent some time this afternoon cleaning and I chose to think of it as a devotional practice. I saw myself radiating out love and harmony and peace as I worked, I could feel it flowing out of my hands. I thought of the gurus who say: Feed people. Serve people. Help people. Come back to basics and the things that are required to be happy and comfortable in our bodies, having a sense of purpose is just as important as getting food and rest.
It all matters and I am determined to keep riding the wave of change and adventure to the next exciting destination! Aho!
Well the desire to curl up in a cosy love nest with my Beloved is just as strong as it was last week when I wrote my post. Seems like a bit of a response from me to sudden huge change and the changes keep rolling in for me. Added now to the search for a new home base is a search for a new source of bread and butter income. My employer lost funding and unfortunately for me my job is amongst those being cut from the service, I have until the end of the financial year for business as usual so not much more than a month. The desire to curl up indicates some kind of fear but it is not overwhelming and underneath that is a sense of trust in the unfolding of my future, now shared with my Beloved.
The Love Bubble!
There was an expectation that I would be devastated but that isn’t what I’ve been feeling at all. Great sadness that such a wonderful job is coming to an end but not truly surprised somehow, as if on some level I knew this was coming. There is a shifting in the energies for all of us in some way shape or form, the best way to experience ease and grace is to respond to each shift as it occurs. I keep checking in to see if I am holding something down but there really isn’t a lot of fear coming up for me at all. And believe me I don’t have anything like what most people would consider basic financial security. Yet I am confident that the next chapter of earning money in the world will be not only prosperous but also very interesting.
In a world with billions of people I found the one that I was looking for, it took forty-nine years and it was worth the wait. If I can experience a miracle like that then there is nothing that can not be created in a fluid energy universe, the quantum cosmic soup. So it will be most interesting to see what comes out of the place of pure potential, how big can I allow my dreams to be!
We shall see, I will keep you posted!
Official Announcement, somewhat belated………. I am having four weeks off and I don’t have back up posts, I received that piece of advice when I had already well and truly begun this journey down the rabbit hole!
So I am in the vortex right now and when I get out the other side I will let you know what has unfolded, the plan is for this to happen by Sunday 30th November.
More than that I can’t say………mostly I’m hopelessly in love and the more time I can hang out with my Beloved the happier I am!
Love you all very much and see you soon!
Four days of soulful magic , until this moment an internal weaving of growth and expansion that somehow could not quite be captured in words. Every time I thought to put pen to paper my deeper knowing said, not yet……not yet. My Joining Gathering this time was not so much an island of love and connection in the new life I was building. There have been many layers of deepening into connection but for my relationship journey I would have to say that the Joining Gathering was pivotal in me getting to where I am now.
I didn’t meet my Beloved there but I spent four days with amazing conscious men and women, it gives one hope that there is someone out there for you. And it can help you to let go of old patterns around men and women as the honouring ceremonies go on and you have the opportunity to dive into yourself in amazing workshops. It helped me make a real shift into new ways of relating to others, and eventually in divine timing I met my Beloved and now we have been to the Joining and run a workshop there together! Talk about dreams coming true!
Us on the day of our workshop!
And so we had a marvelous Joining adventure and came back even more overflowing with love than before, if that’s possible. It was incredible and the really fun bit is that we live in that kind of space on a daily basis my Beloved and I. Doing it with a whole bunch of other conscious seekers and inspiring teachers is operating at an even higher level, all extremely yummy to say the least.
The Joining Gathering.
I would recommend the gathering to anyone seeking to explore different ways of connecting to each other, men and women as well as each with our own business. This is a time to be finding our true relationship with all things, the interconnected web that supports all life everywhere. I am looking forward to my contribution to this and feeling immense gratitude to the Joining Gathering for giving me the opportunity to be seen!
Thanks Joining Community!
