Love, Festivals, And Being In The Moment: Woodford!

What a strange feeling to be mostly entering the future in thoughts that are focused intention, entering sacred space and ‘seeing’ my desired outcomes, performing healing upon myself. It isn’t that I have banished future and past from my awareness, but it is the present moment that dominates, it is the only reality from moment to moment. It does really feel a bit odd, not at all what I’m used to, no future soap operas being directed by my dear friend and ally Fay Fairytale, she has now taken over the movie that plays regularly in the temple and her imagination is a valued resource.

And so much of the past has been shed, the charge has gone and messy emotional constructs have melted away or morphed into shining geometrical holograms. There are still bits of things that I’m not quite ready to let go of too, annoying but I know from experience that giving myself a hard time over it will not help the matter. I am a work in progress enjoying the journey, and doing my best to follow a spiritual path in the world as well as have a bloody good time!

The trick will be to keep some kind of focused meditation going through the holiday season, that’s where flexibility comes in as well as the concept of infusing everything that I do with spirit. Fill my cells with luminous light from the central sun, mix in the deep reds coming up from the earth with the green of the heart and you have the colours for christmas, base, heart and crown chakras.

You will have to wait for my inspirations from six days of hanging out at the Woodford Folk Festival: http://www.woodfordfolkfestival.com/,  fabulous for music as well as dance, talks , workshops and classes. I am not going to be sitting on my computer when I can be out there experiencing life in vivid colour, hanging out with my peace-loving gorgeous community, in fact as you are reading this I am doing exactly that!

Love, mung beans and community………..greetings from Woodford.

Glad To Be Alive.

Stepping into a place of great stability, of anchoring into earth so deep, of meeting synchronicity. Those who share my deepest heart, the private part, that tiny bit I may not show to most, say oh what change are you. Oh what change are you, the story full is coming out, trailer to a cinema nearby, the glimpse of future new. Each moment reveals the next true step, from point to point I go like the fool, trusting even the place where nought seems to lie beneath. My safety net a  sense of renewal and faith, that there is some kind of reason infusing this forward motion into time and space, a reality that I consciously choose to inhabit.

Consciousness inching forward and flowing into prepared pathways opened up in previous volcanic eruptions, movement of earth, flow of blood and lymph, beat of heart. I come fully present into the cells of this magnificent vehicle and there is nothing that can prevent me from being here in this moment, and this and this and this moment………the gift of the present moment, is all we truly have. And there is usually a lot to be grateful for as you tune in to that particular moment in the flow of your time, to be alive in the sweet and warm embrace of an eager summer, hearing the birds and feeling the new life in the air.

To be alive is a wonder in itself, are not bodies incredible things the way they come together as a giant community of intelligent cells, all working harmoniously together to create these creatures known as human beings.  To keep yourself in your body stay in your heart, it is when you bail out there that you leave your body and whatever is moving in you is very likely to get stuck. The less that gets stuck the less you have to clear, I am not a fan of unnecessary house work, if you don’t need to make a mess then don’t!

I am in deep gratitude for a period of time where I am content and not being triggered much if at all, its been a while and it is really nice to lose the drama, maybe it needs to stay lost.

THANK YOU EVERYBODY AND EVERYTHING!

Here is a video of Eckhart Tolle talking about being present in your body, his own presence is not only aligned with what he is saying, it is conveyed with beautiful simplicity, enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LS2x7FEqoNA&list=PL226AB6DD51624C3A&index=1

Love This Moment (It’s all you’ve got!)

“Peace is present right here and now, in ourselves and in everything we do and see.
Every breath we take, every step we take, can be filled with peace, joy, and serenity.
The question is whether or not we are in touch with it.
We need only to be awake, alive in the present moment.”

An amazing sense of having my life back envelops me in presence, how we can stray and become lost without even realising that we are no longer fully here, in this moment. How long have I been gone I ask myself, and cannot find an answer. I guess I must have popped back from time to time, even if it was simply to write these posts, a wonderful exercise in being present!

There are moments of drinking in nature’s gifts of green leaves and sunshine and listening to the bell birds that have happened over and over again. I remember this clearly, so perhaps I’m being a little bit hard on myself, memories of preparing food with love and talking to quarrelsome chooks and squeaking guinea pigs. I have been here, but I’ve also been spending too much time in an imaginary future that never ever had foundations, I knew that on some level but I chose to be in denial for a time.

So now I AM HERE!!!!! In this body, in this beautiful part of the world, in a life full of love and connection, stimulation and passion, and good old-fashioned fun! Enough of the misery and tears, letting go of the pain and the anger, and if there is even the tiniest bit of resentment, scraping it out with ruthless intent. My favourite definition of resentment comes from Carrie Fisher, not only Princess Leia from Star Wars, but also a very funny author, she says that “Resentment is like taking poison and waiting for the other person to die.”

Well I’m not going to waste my time waiting for another person to trip themselves up with their own stupidity, they can do that quite well enough on their own. Mmmmmmm………do I note a little bit of anger in that last statement, ok so I’m not perfect, but I’m working on it already! The best way to let go of all of that is to be in my life as fully as I can, and to have fun no matter what I am doing.

LET THE CELEBRATION BEGIN!!!!!!

Between The Worlds.

I should probably tell you about what happened after all that emotional pain I was describing, I reached out and got a yes, a friend agreed to sit for me in a breath session. Only problem was she answered my email at 1am in the morning and by the time she got up the flu was making her feel weak as a kitten and not up to sitting for me after all. I misunderstood and only realised my mistake about 20 minutes before I was supposed to be doing the session, in the end I found another friend and it did happen, but much later in the day.

So I spent the whole day in a strange twilight world, I wasn’t really present to normal everyday waking reality, yet I had my mum there trying to make normal conversation. I could have shoved it all down again and made the return to so-called normality, but what a waste of a golden opportunity to let go of more stuff! So I hung in there and kept myself in suspension, to be honest I can’t exactly remember how I did that, but I do know that it very much involved being in the present moment most of the time. I did still do some everyday things like read a book and go online for a bit, but it’s like I was operating with a different part of my brain, the left side was not running the show, and I found I would tire very quickly of these activities.

After being in suspension all day it was a big relief to finally arrive for my breath session, there was a tiny bit of fear but mostly what I felt was excitement and surrender. I trained as a rebirther so I’ve done a lot of sessions, and it felt so good to come back to the breath, it’s such a simple healing tool, and if you trust it, it will take you exactly where you need to go.

Which is where I shall take you in my next post!
