The Jewel In The Crown.

I keep hearing from people around me that it’s been an extremely challenging year, that’s certainly been my experience, but if you are prepared to meet the seeming obstacles in your path the opportunity to break through old patterns is also very prominent. If you are one of those who is ‘awake’ in the world then there has never been a better time to take your cosmic broom and sweep out your inner realm until it positively shines!

My sense is that there are some very large-scale shifts that have been occurring, we kept hearing about 2012 and there might be some who would say that nothing actually happened after all that hype! Well the world didn’t end that’s for sure, but if you tune in to the energetic realms there has definitely been enormous change, and that does include some pretty extreme weather too even if the world is still here. The devastation in the Philipines is just the latest example of this, we have had so many tsunamis and severe storms over the last few years, whatever you may think about climate change one way or the other, some things have really gotta CHANGE!

I don’t actually require scientific studies to tell me that we need to treat ourselves, each other, the animals and all the plant and mineral kingdoms, far far better than we currently do. All the resources we need are out there and in the event of the world waking up and humanity stepping up to its role as caretaker for Mother Earth and Father Sky, or how ever you want to phrase it, it is all there to be drawn on. We live in a very rich world, a jewel in the crown of the galaxy, let’s polish it until it sparkles with joy and sends that light out to the milky way!

Lets dance our way through the interplay between light and shadow, let polarity be a pleasure rather than a sentence that condemns us to rigid roles and prison bars.

Time to WAKE UP!!!!!!

Aho!

Dark Nights And Bright New Days.

I am in the flow for sure, but what if your flow is a whirlpool spinning you madly as you head towards the rapids with you know not what waiting, maybe a drop into a waterfall. That might be an amazing experience as you fall through, drops of water sparkling with the sunshine beaming through and rainbows glittering, a safe landing into the next pool of life is an exciting journey. Stay in your heart and trust is an important key, one thing at a time even if you have a lot of things to accomplish in a day.

Let there be stillness even in a busy day, find it in yourself if it isn’t in the environment around you and you are unable to make a change. Connect to nature even if it is simply a piece of wood, a flower or perhaps the leaf of a potted plant, if you can get your bare feet in the earth even better. That stillness is always within your being, let the mind relax and beyond the chatter is a great still pool that is never really disturbed, we sometimes lose our connection with it and from this stems a tide of people who feel unfulfilled. Somewhere in their sleeping is the knowledge that there is more at greater depth, but their fear holds them back, they pretend to know but it is naught but a pretty facade once one has seen through it.

How would it be to remain without tuning in to that deeper place that our feelings can take us to, if we have the courage to sit with them no matter what they might be. Anger, fear, jealousy and resentment, grief and loss……….who wants to sit with that! But if you do you will begin to go deeper than ever you knew was possible, moving the veil aside so that all potential is revealed, the quantum soup, zero point field. You don’t have to dive in as deeply as I did into a Dark Night of the Soul that felt at times like the very pits of Hades, not fun but ultimately enlightening!

When you have shared time with another soul in those incandescent places where hearts are open and you are honestly questing for more and more life, there is a deeper connection that doesn’t even really need words. To be in a community much like that, well you know I actually live somewhere a bit like that, life here is a blessing in the vibrant and creative life bursting from all sides.

Thank you Mother Earth for your bounty, Father Sky for the sunshine and the air, thank you life, ohm shanti, shanti, shanti……………………

I Love Me.

Self-love keeps popping up in my world wherever I go, and what I think of as its opposite, self-judgement, that was the theme of my latest holistic counselling session. It was also the major aspect that presented when we toned on the day of the New Moon in Libra, so it must be relating to a larger energy in our environment that is probably affecting many of us, in various ways. And as more focus goes upon self-love, whatever judgements are still there will often be triggered, they may not be comfortable but if they are on the way out then I suggest you wave them goodbye!

A cloud of gnats.

My homework from my session is to be kind and tender to me, to Kerry, and to call upon the compassionate cohorts, Michael, Germain, Mary, Aphrodite, and all the ascended masters, and to connect to nature. So I need to immerse myself in the ocean of love within and without and try to enjoy this gorgeous warm weather that we are having here, the gardens are beautiful at the moment, the bush even better. Mother Earth is very kind and she never judges me as I do myself, need to take a leaf out of her book, ha ha…..ha ha……..oh I am silly, in a good way!

Now I am smiling at myself and that brings a rush of soft warm energy into my body, it feels good to consciously love and appreciate self, noticing how niggling little judgements come up like a flight of gnats, letting them go and feeling the heart expand. I’m remembering  the sounds of the holy names and the soft container that was “Sacred Earth” at the festival last saturday, sitting and receiving the vibration, dancing the frequencies, these are all fabulous ways in which to practice loving yourself.

And you do need to practice, we all do to some extent, depending on where you are in your development, hopefully we are always a work in progress. So maybe take the pressure off yourself in some particular area of your life that is having an impact on your stress levels, and give yourself at least a day every week where you totally please yourself, preferably at least a taste of some kind of indulgence.

It works for me!!

Here is a clip of “Sacred Earth” performing “Divine Mother”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-uSV9nqNHPw

Feline Pleasures.

Today I went and sat out on the earth not long after getting up, it was the perfect start to the day, feeling that solid loving support from the Mother. It wasn’t long before mum’s cat Pushkin joined me, he is a very affectionate if neurotic creature and he likes to say hello and get a big pat. The sun was shining and the temperature just perfect, ahhhhhh……..I truly do live in paradise, and this is not even where the land sings to me all the time.

I sat drinking it all in as I watched Pushkin walk over to a cleared patch of earth from where we have been eliminating that voracious weed, the Singapore Daisy. He laid down and he rolled in the dirt, from one side to the other and you could see him drinking in every aspect of his sensory experience, his total focus on the pleasure of the earth on his fur and the sun shining down. For him it was even better to have one of his people (his sister in fact), watching him in his pleasure.

Sensuality, it is an attractive quality whether you are enjoying it within yourself, or watching another lost in pure sensation, feeling every possible aspect of the sensory realm and Loving It! Soaking in an aromatherapy bath, picking mulberries off the tree and enjoying the juicy ripeness as they burst in your mouth, leaving your fingers the most exquisite shade of bright red. The feeling of my Birkenstock sandals, like walking on velvet, silken scarf caresses the skin like a lover with the softest touch.

If ever I should forget what pleasure is available with just the slightest tweak of consciousness, I only have to spend time with Pushkin, he is the most sensual creature I know, being touched matters more to him than being fed! Is life not grand, and the wonders available to us on this planet the most marvelous thing you have ever seen!

The Silent Spaces.

A HeartFire Gateway message has come through to invite me into the silence:

Within each of us there is a silence, a silence as vast as creation.

When we experience this silence, we remember who we truly are.

Tune in and record what comes thru for you:

When I experience the Silence, I remember…………

http://www.HeartFireGateway.com

I remember what it is to be free, to simply be me, to truly rest and to let go……. I feel the earth, the spirit of the land, the animals, plants, rocks and minerals. The silence holds me at whatever depth I need to descend to, it is my anchor, my rock……it nourishes my soul and absorbs the shadow that may cling to me at times. I feel the Mother speaking to me, she is asking me to dance and sing upon her skin, to be a gardener of energies, a weaver of worlds.

In the silence I feel the tug of spirit, drawing me upon the pathway of life into places of power, passion and connection, a life lived fully and well. The more that I rest in the silent spaces the more I can be all of who I am, the larger self that comprehends the big picture. In the silence I can feel the entire cosmos streaming out from my position in space-time reality, the black hole beyond the milky way is made of the same stuff that I am, everything is one.

deep-space2

When I sit and meditate I rest in the silent spaces within my soul, no pressure to be or do anything, simply what is in each moment, a gift priceless beyond measure. My heart softens and it’s field expands around the world connecting me with all hearts that beat in time with the rhythm of the earth, the pulse beat of the cosmos. Sound of the drum invites me into the underworld to be in all places at once, all things to all people, everything to myself…….and nothing.

Ohm Shanti, shanti, shanti………peace, peace, peace……..

Don’t Be Afraid Of The Dark.

When we talk about stuff coming up, most people automatically assume that something negative or difficult is responsible for the triggering. But that isn’t always the case, sometimes you can have experiences that are blissful and ecstatic that bring up uncomfortable feelings. My deep connection with Mother Earth that I spoke of in my last post is an example of this, although the stuff that came up was like light butterflies zooming around in my belly, and the feeling that eventually came up was a gentle sorrow.

I am in a period of great clarity having shifted an enormous amount of stuff over the last ten months, so what is coming up for me at the moment when it does happen is pretty easy to deal with. But that isn’t always the case, and it can make people resistant to the process of moving into their fullness however they may be approaching it. On some level they are aware that discomfort could arise and that brings up the resistance to letting go of the old patterns of behaviour.

I am reminded of that wonderful quote from Marianne Williamson:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.”

I gave a sound and body healing session to a friend yesterday, and that’s what got me thinking about this subject matter. It was beautiful and flowed very organically, the words that came out of my mouth, my movements and sounds, all pure channeling. I was very much in my fullness and it was a wonderful experience for her and for me. She stayed on for a cuppa and as we talked I gradually began to feel rather strange inside my body, a little bit nauseous and disconnected from myself and the world around me. It wasn’t very comfortable at all, but after she’d gone I did a short meditation that brought peace into my body, as I let go of the swirling energies, coming back into balance again.

So don’t let potential darkness stop you from stepping into the spot light and showing off all your gifts and talents to the world, without the dark how would we know what light was? I speak with the knowledge of someone who has spent most of her life hiding her light under a bushel, and I know how hard it is to come out. If I can do it anyone can………………..what is it that you really want to do, what is your passion, your heart song……….follow it to your bliss, and don’t be afraid of the dark!

Which reminds me of a beautiful song, here is “You’ll never walk alone” from the musical “Carousel”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d6V9EbnNx6U

 

Opening To The Divine.

So what the hell is attraction anyway, a strong energy felt between two people that draws them together, unmet needs searching for a home where they can feel safe? Or could it be a sense of purpose, of having something important to do in the world with that other person. I would say all of the above and probably a whole lot more that I haven’t mentioned, possibly as many definitions as there are people, we are a complex lot! And of course without all that chemistry we wouldn’t keep having babies, so I guess it is something that is hard-wired into our DNA.

There have been a million songs written about attraction in all its various forms and love usually gets a mention, but do the two things automatically go together? Of course not! When they are both present there is a depth to the feelings that sheer physical magnetism can never really manage, however delicious it might seem in the moment. I am rediscovering the pleasures of attraction as I go through a big transition into my new life, but I have also felt the confusion that can come up. Since I began this particular journey there has been a lot of stuff coming up that harks from my teenage years when my sexuality was trying to flourish in the midst of confusion, despair, and eventually my father’s suicide.

Strong energies do tend to bring up stuff and if you aren’t conscious of the process it can be terribly easy to project what you’re feeling on to the other person. On the other hand, choose a conscious pathway as you relate to the world around you and you can become even clearer as you go along your merry way. That has been my experience over this last week, although the relationship that really stirred things up for me this week was not so much a person, it was Mother Earth.

Now that is a strong energy indeed, I lay on the earth and I merged into her until there was no longer any me, no longer any separation between me and anything else. The energy ripped through newly awakened energetic pathways and it was a wonderful opening, a kind of initiation. To be with the Mother is to experience love on an immense scale and that’s what I want in a relationship, to open to God, Goddess, All That Is…………….

My Relationship Altar.

My Relationship Altar.

So as I enjoy the dance of attraction I will remain mindful of my intention for any potential connection with a man, David Deida puts it very well indeed.

“Find a woman who you can open to God farther than she is opening herself. Find a woman who wants to join you in relationship in that commitment. Then practice together opening each other to God, to infinity. The relationship is a conscious choice, a commitment. It doesn’t just happen.”

From “The Love That Washes Through Patterns,” a talk by David Deida

Here’s a video from a talk by David Deida, love the bit where he talks about a woman wanting to be ravished open to God!

Balance Of Care.

A couple of posts ago I was raving on about how great I felt after evicting what seemed like another nasty bug, it seemed so unfair when I had only recently spent a week in bed, so unusual for me. At the same time that I was feeling that energy surge through my body I was also aware that I was riding a fine line, that kind of enthusiasm can spend your vigour and take you back to a place of ill-health. It’s something we’ve all done at one time or another, when you have been feeling low the return to full life can almost be a bit overwhelming.

So I was determined not to allow that to happen, with two overnight shifts in a row and a busy weekend to follow I needed to make sure that I took proper care of myself. So I made sure to lie down and at least have a doze before going to flamenco class, it was particularly vigorous but I enjoy it so much it ends up giving me as much energy as it takes. If you are going to fill your life with a lot of activities then it is essential for most if not all of it to fill you with joy, that kind of passion will take you a long way although it doesn’t change the message that spirit is sending me to slow down.

Alas the bug was not completely cleared, so I’ve been trying to do what needs to be done at the same time as taking care of myself . That means green smoothies and meditation, after a long session on the laptop I went and lay on the earth for a while feeling the loving support of Mother Earth. Connecting your bare skin with the earth on a regular basis is sooooo important, you can feel any stress draining out, it’s a bit like the earthing wire in electrical systems.

So here I sit still feeling the sickness in my body, looking forward to a medicine circle where I will hopefully be able to journey to a place of full health. Shedding whatever needs to go, embracing the wonderful new beginning that has opened up for me as I move through this transition, into my wondrous new life!

So be it, so be it, so be it…………

For more information on earthing have a look at this website, and if you are intrigued by the whole subject get researching, there is heaps of information out there: http://www.sarahwilson.com.au/2013/05/my-simple-home-earthing-mats/

Butterfly Dreaming.

Settling into yet another house sit, this one for just two weeks, and a little bit further from town than I usually prefer, but I am learning a lot about flexibility, and getting to feel into the energies of the earth in each place. The way I have lived for the last year and a half is not something I would ever have planned, it unfolded as I followed my intuitive senses, and there have been rich rewards along the way. If, like me, you thrive on variety, house sitting can be a wonderful way to satisfy this desire. I have moments when I get a bit sick of the moving from one place to another, but I also have trust that I will be guided when the time comes to settle down and put down roots.

butterflypurple

For that’s what is coming next for me, I long for my sanctuary, the place where I can retreat to when I need to refresh my batteries, the home that nourishes my body, mind and soul. It will also host gatherings large and small, I will get to cook wondrous feasts of magical food filled with love and joy, actually some of those feasts will probably be raw so in some cases I’ll be uncooking! I will be doing more of my healing work in that space, beautifully unstructured and largely channeled, working closely with the energies of the land that I am on. It’s a beautiful dream that has been pouring out of me ever since I looked after the fairy cottage, and it’s a dream that was reflected and confirmed for me in the reading that I had.

The vision becomes clearer and clearer, and I believe in it more and more, there will come a time for action but that is not now. Letting go of expectation I hold this dream in my heart even as I let it go, to fly like a brightly coloured butterfly into the field of quantum potential. In the process of manifestation there must always be, at some stage, this letting go, giving your intention to spirit………..to God, Goddess………Gaia, Mother Earth…………to life!

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.
