Be Careful What You Say!

Something I’ve been thinking about lately is the power of language, and how our use of particular words or phrases can say a lot about the way in which we view our world, indeed many would say that our words create our reality. So if you are constantly saying, “I can’t afford it”, then you are telling yourself that there is never enough and that you can’t have all the things that you want or need in your life, whether we are talking about luxuries or necessities the message is the same.

That is a relatively straight forward idea, but where I have always had difficulty is in finding alternative ways of describing my situation, before you can change yourself there has to be acceptance of what is, and so talking about the Rolls Royce you are going to buy when your budget doesn’t extend to even a second-hand bomb seems a bit airy fairy. So you could say, as an alternative, “That isn’t currently in my budget”, which implies that when the time is right that it will be, it still doesn’t feel quite honest to me which probably says a lot about the strength of my beliefs around not being supported!

So I’m going to give this a committed focus and see what happens, I’m meditating every day and going into my temple to heal myself and to create the amazing new life that is trembling upon the brink of my old reality. As a prelude to the meditation I’m using EFT to clear the resistance and in that process I am very much accepting and loving myself exactly as I am, so I think I’m doing ok with the accept things the way that they are bit.  The next step is to bring extreme mindfulness into my daily interactions as well as watching my self-talk for signs of the old belief patterns that are on the way out.

The new reality that is emerging is getting stronger and stronger inside of me, by behaving according to that picture I will strengthen the images I am giving to my brain about the way things are in my world. And it’s very important not to give too much focus to anything that doesn’t support this vision, even as I deal sensibly with my current reality in each and every moment. It’s a balancing act that will be a most interesting challenge, and I look forward to telling you all about the stunning results that will come flooding in as I change my world forever!

So be it, so be it, so be it………………………….

Summer Sounding.

There is a stillness and an intensity about summer that sings its siren song through the cells of my body, along with the heat and the shrill sound of the cicadas, a part of me feels itself home. Times when young mind and body moved inside air conditioning to moist heat, to the perfection of the dry, dry warmth, and the cool, cool night. Holidays spent camping when it always seemed to be summer, and the months reached on and on into an endless time of sand and ocean wave, flies and christmas beetles.

Today I can feel a touch of cooler Spring air, yet the Summer rushes apace, couldn’t even properly wait for Winter to wrap up her icy wind and misty mien, she came she went, she is gone. The climate she be a changing as so we are told, how can we come into coherence with all things, that we may know the right thing to do for the much larger picture, reaching all the way to the black hole beyond the milky way.  Treat everyone with respect is a good place to start, we all have important gifts to contribute to this beautiful space-time reality that we’ve currently agreed to participate in!

Dragonfly

And be present in the moment you are in, mine is a summery flow that stretches out into eternity, it’s a day with no borders from the senses of a child, when summer never ends, or so it seems. And in this moment there is nothing to be stressed about, life is suspended like the dragon-fly in the air, sparkling bright orange in the sunlight before coming to land on the clothes line. Dragon fly brings me messages about transformation and consciously working with the light to create particular reflections, being adaptable and letting the emotions flow and be aligned with the mental body. The orange speaks to me of the sacral chakra and the continuing release and flow of my life force energy, creativity opening up in new pathways, and Aphrodite’s sweet presence warming my core.

Love and harmony to all, ohm shanti, shanti, shanti……….

Here are some summer thoughts from Josh Pyke:

Packing Devotion.

I wrote a post that came out about a week ago about how loving yourself is easy when you are doing fun things, but when the times get tough it can be challenging to maintain that positive outlook. So how did I go with this on my recent trip, as a matter of fact it was on the very day that post came out that I spent 12 hours sorting and re-packing my stuff!

I started off looking through the journals and bits and pieces I had written, and it was actually pretty interesting to get glimpses into my past. But I was always going to keep all of that stuff, so there came a point where I realised that I was not using my time very efficiently, however fascinating it might be. At that stage the day was almost over, and having champagne with my friend didn’t help the process either. Hence the 12 hour day where the only sorting was of things that might get thrown away, and I managed to get rid of quite a bit.

That very long day was where I was truly tested and I have to say that I passed with flying colours! The temptation to hate what I was doing and wanting it to just be over was very strong, so I did what I always do in that situation. I made the choice to see it as an act of devotion, in this case the devotion was for self, there is something very sacred about clearing your clutter and getting more organised. It also felt like I was gathering in parts of me that had been scattered so was very much a part of becoming more whole, putting all the bits of me back together.

And I do feel different, its subtle and there aren’t really words to describe it, but I am not the same person who went down to the city just a short time ago. May these winds of change guide me as I navigate my way through the birth of a new world, my own personal reality and the larger one that holds us all.

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

Dream The Dream.

With the realisation that I’m feeling a yearning to be on land that sings to me, I am pondering the process of manifestation and how it operates. Finding perfect places to live that I can afford is something I’ve always been good at, so the prognosis for me achieving my goal is good. The fact that I have a good track record in this department means that I have an ingrained belief that I can do this, and that faith is an integral part of  being able to create your own reality.

The first part is being very clear on your vision, whatever it is that you want to draw into your life, its good to have as much detail as possible. My vision for where and how I want to live has almost been pouring out of me since my magical house sit, so I would say that spirit knows what it is that I want. I see myself in the bush but not too far from town, a house or cottage with lots of wood, cleared around the building but with the forest not too far away. It’s a sanctuary, a place that holds me safely while I recharge my batteries and explore new dimensions of the natural world and my own being.

Then there is action, I began that today by telling a friend who will keep her ear to the ground on my behalf. I’ll do that with other people and also send an email to the people with the fairy cottage who I house sat for, at some point I will probably bring in social media but for now I will start by putting feelers out into the community. And then there is the letting go part of the process where you release your vision to spirit and allow it to bring your dream to you, having faith that it will happen in the best possible way for you and all life everywhere. Always good to add that bit, its kind of like insurance to make sure that what you are creating is aligned with the highest good for all life.

So I will move in and out of action and letting go, following my flow as best as I am able to, feeling my heart yearning for that deep connection with the land. Allowing the wisdom of my heart to guide me in moving into that desire, trusting that all will be well………………so be it, so be it, so be it.

Here is some wisdom from Abraham on manifestation:

Inception.

A dream within a dream………within a dream……that is within yet another dream……interesting concept, I’ve done it in meditation, its fun to see how far you can go back, the watcher watching the watcher and so on. The film Inception does a nice job of playing with realities as a team go into the subconscious realm of somebody’s mind. They plan to go down into three layers  of dream, in the end it is even deeper than they had planned, four realities operating simultaneously all heading for a collision point, the shock providing the kick back into current time reality.

Inception: A film by Christopher Nolan, with Leonardo di Caprio.

So all the people in these worlds are projections of the mind of the person we are inside, some would say that is true of the current moment humanity finds itself in. If everyone around you is a projection of you what is that telling you about yourself, doesn’t mean taking on other people’s stuff however, or stealing energy. It’s an idea, and this film really examines the power of an idea, the seed of a thought and how it can grow, shows the manifestation process in some ways, in the guise of an action film. Not normally my cup of tea so much but the costumes and cinematography are extremely well done, the acting of a very high standard, and the idea of four realities operating simultaneously keeps it interesting.

If you ever want to experiment with meditation then try stepping back from the deep space you have come to and begin to watch yourself do this. As you get more practice you may be able to step back again, and again, and so on……..it can be a lot of fun. And you will find that it does actually take you even deeper, it brings in the visual more strongly for me, and that helps the drop into deeper layers of reality.

Watch Inception for a nice bending of the mind, not that hard to keep it all hanging together but fun to contemplate for the space of a couple of hours.

Wham Bam Thank You Mam!

I toyed with the idea of scrapping my last post, not sure it quite hung together, but then I decided it was probably reflecting me exactly where I was in that moment, once again I find myself imperfect! There I was saying how nice it was to be clear for a change, and then wham bam thank you mam, huge amount of stuff on the move, deepest loss and abandonment, full of such sadness. I think it is something you could describe as a moving feast, sometimes the dishes are good and sometimes they are flavoured with regret, grief, or anger.

David Bowie: he played out his 'stuff' for all to see, some great music came out of that process!

I am certainly getting clearer and clearer on what I do and do not want in my life, even when the emotional storm leaves you feeling like you’ve been hit by a truck, there is a sense of clarity that comes as the storm begins to clear. That feeling that so much has been washed away, there is a new world to explore where nothing is quite the same anymore. There is a choice, you can yearn for the old way of being, or you can look with excitement to a whole new perception of the reality around you. If I am being truthful about myself here, and I really do try to be very honest with you all, I probably go between those two states, with the new way gradually gaining more power and momentum until you find yourself positively humming in that direction!

It’s a great theory and I do practice it, although in practice it might not always be so easy to see the pattern of back and forthing as it is happening. The main thing is to keep releasing anything that isn’t serving you, and if it keeps coming up then keep releasing it, repetition being an important part of change. And let your heart draw you in the direction of the new reality that is opening up to you, it will know what to do if you allow it to do what it does best, embracing and surrendering, loving all things, seeing the life force in everyone………….

Love is all you need…………..blissings.

This is kind of gratuitous but I thought of this David Bowie song when I remembered the phrase, wham bam thank you mam. He is so young and so utterly beautiful, in such an androgynous way, must have been so many boys and girls in love with him then, me being one of them, enjoy!

Conspire To Breathe.

Breathing, it’s something we all have in common, without it there would be no life for our physical bodies but most of the time we don’t think about it much, simply take it for granted. Our breath is an incredibly potent tool for healing and  can launch you into a thousand different worlds, other realities. That this has been known for thousands of years can be seen in the yogic traditions of pranayama, up until 1386 it could also be found in the english language in the word conspire, which meant to breathe together. Then this powerful concept was hijacked and the notion of conspiracy was born, instead of breathing together we were plotting and generally up to no good!

Pranayama.

Pranayama.

Breathwork has been a big part of my self-development and growth, it’s given me great understandings, and  it’s facilitated the release of enormous amounts of my excess baggage. There isn’t a baggage retrieval system in the world that could cope with the amount of luggage I’ve left behind, all that weight it’s a wonder I could lift my feet from the ground in order to walk.

I went into that session feeling a bit like a ghost, I came out feeling calm, full of light and incredibly expanded. In the session I was aware of touching on different past lives as well as aspects of my current biography, not going in to the stories, but being aware that the basic issue of  betrayal and not being able to trust was present in them all. I felt enormous amounts of energy moving in my body and being released, it’s such a wonderful feeling!

There were a couple of days of a little bit of dis-ease in the belly and then clearing it, part of the process of integration I guess, my yoga class was really helpful for this. And now I am in a new house sit and have the space to continue the integration which is such divine timing. I’ve definitely done some good work clearing but I know there is another big lot of stuff to move out and my next breath session will be next week, with the friend I asked originally.

It’s so important to know when to ask for help, I couldn’t have managed this last bit on my own, thank the Goddess for the wonderful supportive community I find myself resting in. Let us all conspire together, for peace, for love and for the birth of the new humanity!
