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!

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.

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:

Pleasuring Into Ecstasy: Slow It Down Sweetheart!

PinkOshoFlowerPoemYou know there are some blogs out there that really keep it simple and focus on one big project, like cooking your way through a famous french recipe book over a whole year. And then there’s someone like me, exploring every aspect of consciousness she can send her awareness into, moving fluidly and sometimes for no apparent reason from one project to another, and then back again!

Well I’m back to where I had got to in “Tantric Orgasm For Women” and really enjoying being able to read and find that sometimes an open body and heart is as good as any book. But it is an excellent text-book and very inspiring too, relaxation is the key and I can attest to the value of letting go of tension and generally slowing everything down. So you do need to be able to trust your Beloved, even then you may be holding tensions you are not aware of, so a safe space to be together in is crucial, and that is emotional and spiritual space, not just the physical.

The more that you let go, the more you can allow the body to guide the experiential navigation of two energies coming together, you become more sensitive to subtle energy, sensuality is heightened, which can only be a good thing! And anything that you do comes out of a place of non-attachment.

“Action is an overflowing of energy; action is in this moment, a response, unprepared, unrehearsed. The whole existence meets you, confronts you and a response simply comes. The birds are singing and suddenly you start singing-it is not activity. Suddenly it happens. Suddenly you find it is happening, that you have started humming-this is action.”

Osho, Transcribed Teachings, Tantra: The Supreme Understanding: in Diana Richardson: Tantric Orgasm for Women, p 139.

Destination Unknown.

Well I’m back in this strange reality that we have all agreed to participate in together and feeling soooooo much better about it than I did yesterday. I was aware of fear and doubt moving in my belly this morning, much diminished from the day before, to me it felt like a shimmering energy moving upwards to be released. I went out into a stunning and hot day to dive into two hours of a yoga class that took me deeply into my inner realms, helping me to process and integrate those swirling energies.

Now as I sit here writing I’m aware that there is still movement down below, but I’m detached from it, it’s a kind of stepping back that happens internally. It allows the process to continue as it needs to, but you are no longer attached to the discomfort or whatever feelings are going on. I find yoga to be a wonderful way of moving into this space, but you need to find a class that acknowledges the practice as not only physical, but spiritual and energetic. I am very fortunate in that I have two amazing teachers who support me in my practice on all levels of my being.

As always I recommend that you explore the possibilities, and find the modality that works for you, dance, meditation, chanting or toning, challenge yourself and get out of your comfort zone, you might be surprised at what ends up working for you. I like having as many tools as possible, doing the same thing all the time just doesn’t work for me, variety is an absolute necessity in my life. But you know, it doesn’t actually matter what you do, as long as it works!

I’m looking over at “The Art of Non-Conformity” and reading the sub-title, “Set your own rules, live the life you want, and change the world,” sounds like an excellent plan to me, and in my more positive frame of mind it seems much more likely than it did yesterday. I’m still not quite sure of the how but the only way to find out is to keep plugging away, sometimes you just have to keep going even when you have no idea what the final destination might be.

So on, on and onwards, to destinations exotic and unknown!

Here is a video with some basic yoga for beginners, but if you don’t have any movement experience or a pretty comprehensive body awareness then I would recommend going and doing a class. If you do a pose incorrectly you can hurt yourself, and if you learn it right the first time there are no bad habits to undo!

Loving Me.

Unconditional love and self-acceptance, easy on the days when you feel on top of the world and like everything is going your way! When you are feeling discomfort of any kind it starts to become much harder to feel that love for self, yet the path to ultimate happiness usually involves spending time with dis-ease. I talk about sitting with the uneasy stuff a lot and I do my best to be present with it, but sometimes you just want it to go away without doing anything clever or enlightened, I just want to feel better!

When it’s actually a physical reaction you might be having, for example an allergic response to something, it seems much harder to combat with tools such as meditation or tapping. When you’re having powerful symptoms that are impacting you and making you feel sick, you tend to feel that a straightforward physical remedy is what’s needed. And that may be true, but you can still always change the way that you are perceiving the situation.

So I guess I measure my success in life in some ways, by the way I handle the uncomfortable bits. It seems like a balance between accepting what is, and looking at what needs to change, after all the uneasy stuff is generally pointing in the direction of things that need to be changed. Or perhaps it would be better to say that we need to simply let go of what is not working for us,  and as that goes we can see much more clearly that which does work, and that has always been there underneath all the crap.

On the day you read this post I will be in the middle of packing and sorting and chucking as I get clarity on the physical stuff that has been in storage for so long. No time for writing posts while that’s going on, so I will let you know after the dust has settled, if I manage to get through this process in a way that is successful by my definition.

Loving me, loving all things, loving this life………….love is all you need.

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.
