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.

But for now farewell and goodnight, sweet dreams to you all, or sweet sunshine depending on your time zone!

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.

The Inner Neural Workout!

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:

Veggies With Zing!

People in the mainstream think of healthy eating as having plenty of fruit and veggies, good in theory but how much nutrition are they actually getting from the food that they eat. Well if it isn’t organic then it’s full of nasty chemicals that are toxic to your body, but even if it’s one of those hardy plants that doesn’t need much in the way of pesticides, chances are it offers much less nutrition than it would have 100 years ago. Soils in most parts of the world have become depleted in minerals, which has had a direct effect on the quality of the food that we eat.

fruits-and-veggies

If you buy organic then you are generally getting a higher mineral content, but if you grow your own and add generous quantities of rock dust to the soil, you end up with the best possible quality, add in love as you work the garden and the food you eat from it is going to make your body zing! I am so looking forward to settling down and having a veggie garden, by the time that happens I will have so much wonderful information I will be able to create a garden that supports me to live to at least 120, maybe even longer. There are places in the world where people routinely live to 100 or more, and one of the things they have in common is that the soil is highly mineralised.

There are many different ingredients to having a long life in good health, mental, emotional, spiritual and physical are all important, and need to be in the right balance with each other. When it comes to the physical the food that we eat is high on the list of priorities, and while I do believe our minds are powerful enough to transform the effects of eating low quality food, why not make less work and just give your body the right stuff in the first place!

Check out this interview with Don Weaver who is talking about the remineralisation of the soil using rock dust, a web site that he recommends for more information is remineralize.org

Do you know about the movement to remineralize the earth?
The mineral content of our food has gone down drastically since 1910, but the solution for your personal garden is very simple: you just add rock dust.

The Empty Heart.

Following the stream of consciousness into the complexity of shape and form, physical, emotional and mental, pathways of neurons, atoms as fractals spiral through the fabric of it all. Letting go of the ego mind my quantum vision is a journey without edges or boundaries, it flows in circles that never end, passing through past, future and present tenses. More often than anything else it is moving within my pleasant tense, bringing purple thoughts of a being made of light, bathing the world in the violet flame.

‘Tis a quiet call to action, no more the clarion call that was required to wake the dead, to blast away the rotting waste that hampered my every step, a graveyard perfume that is lost in the fragrance of the blossoming present moment. All is fresh and new, the flowers opening their petals again and again, as if spring reigned eternal, the pulsating energy centres connecting and flowing as I dive into the void. That welcoming emptiness is warm and inviting, the home hearth fire at which I will always be safe, always be known, always be myself.

To know oneself is a journey that spirals in the shape of the eternity symbol, so many ways to travel and yet they all lead back to the same place. My clear calm centre of beingness that never changes, my perception may dress it in a coat of many colours, yet it remains what is, and what has, and will always be. So when you are weary of the bustle and excitement and stimulation of the wide, wide, world, when your imagination is stuffed with the images and shapes of so much variety, come back to the dark womb of creation, that emptiness that contains it all, the field of potential.

Take a deep breath………….. and dive in!

This beautiful song by Miten expresses that emptiness which is so full, please have a listen and let it touch your heart as it does mine.

Crystal Conversations.

I had a play with some of my oracle cards after shifting the stuff that was moving in me after toning circle, and one of the cards I got was Nimue from Lucy Cavendish’s Dragonfae Oracle. She brings transformation and rebirth and asks that I make the full commitment to self that is required to bring this about. She also counsels the use of crystals, and I found the most beautiful piece of celestite at the market the next day, that I just had to have. It supports spiritual and psychic gifts, calms and uplifts the emotional body, aids in mental clarity and is also good as an environmental cleanser.

Once I had it I couldn’t let it go, it’s kind of an egg shape that fits perfectly into the palm of my hand, and the longer I held it the more I could feel the energies moving through my body. It’s sitting by me now as I work at the computer, and I can feel my connection to it almost as if we were having a conversation at some subtle level.

Crystals can really help and support us in many different ways, they too vibrate just as we do and are a part of the energy field we all inhabit. So it’s not so suprising that there can be interaction between us, I was once saved by some shards of rhodochrosite, if you would like to read that story check out “My Strawberry Heart”.

I always wear some crystals when I go to work on the crisis phone lines on my overnight shifts, all of them offer protection and each have particular qualities that always seem in sync with the calls I get that night. On the nights I get more challenging calls I often find I am wearing rose quartz which supports the heart, or jasper which is very grounding.

In my next post I will tell you the story of my very first experience with a crystal, when it helped me to support my aunt in her passing.

Gratitude and loving blissings to my friends of the Mineral Kingdom, thank you for your beauty and for the wonderful support that you offer!
