Time To Rock From Ignorance To Bliss!

shpongle tributeI’m listening to Shpongle doing “Once Upon The Sea Of Blissful Awareness”, if you missed it then please check out my last post where you will find the link, oh what the hell I’m feeling generous, here’s the link again: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PAQkxJ4zHh4

soul artIn that particular post I made the suggestion that you take the time to truly listen to the music with your entire being, body, mind and soul. You might find that moving your body helps you to really ‘know’ the music at the deepest level possible, it is most definitely meditation and your response can be as fluid as it needs to be. Complete stillness may be what you require at times, listen to the body’s communications and journeys can come from the simplest of things, like hearing music or the sounds of nature, gazing into the eyes of another soul. The best things in life are generally not commodities, you wouldn’t think that from seeing what goes on in the first world.

Life itself is devalued when we move out of balance with a system that we are an integral part of even though there are some who seem determined to maintain ignorance on that subject, unfortunately they tend to be the ones ‘governing’ our country. There are places where people do behave with respect for the environment and each other, my town is a long way from perfect just like me but I am strongly reminded of how different we are when I go to the city. It is possible to change the way that you think and it can happen in so many different ways, the more of us who do it the easier it becomes for everyone else.

So keep rocking on with your spiritual, physical, mental and emotional bodies as the vital vortex that is life takes you in a quantum dance into the future, baby it is time to ROCK!

Yay!

Here is of all people, Tom Cruise, rocking it on big time in the movie “Rock of Ages”, if you haven’t seen it, it’s an awesome films with great performances, Tom Cruise is the Rock God, the guy can really act! And Alec Baldwin and Russel Brand make the most delightful couple.

From The Stillness to Salvation, With Bliss The Medicine Of Choice!

funny-dog-yoga-pose

Intense little period of activity, writing and writing in a much smaller pressure cooker which is sandwiched with languid delight and lots of satisfaction if not a lot of sleep. A recipe to be happy for me in this moment, open to the flow of energy as it charts new pathways long visioned and desired, blood running hot, a slow, sensual way of being that needs to be relaxed into. Yoga reflects this slow movement, spending long moments in stillness of pose, letting go into muscles slowly moving towards their edge, restorative pose with all the support I need, savasana……….still space edged with impatience!

kookaburra

Dancing from moment to moment with animal companions snuggling, kookaburra flies in to deliver his message of truth, passion and laughter, the end of the journey of healing, new growth has already begun. For a full description of this animal totem check this link out: http://solacetemple.wordpress.com/2007/11/10/kookaburra-a-spirit-bird/ Enjoying the space with just me in it even as I long to be entwined once again, one being re-united into the form of two polarities, going in and coming out, out into the cosmos and the stillness, bringing back all of that, into the merge.

Being intensely present to the scene around me, like a movie, and the one on the outside is getting more like the one I play regularly in my temple every day! You can assume by my positive tone that this is a good thing and you would be correct, my outer world has shifted massively in tune with movement in the inner realms, the flow of healthy, happy energy gives one rather a buoyant feeling in fact. I can feel that healing occurring on every level of my being, from the physical to all of the mental, spiritual, emotional realms that form the person that be me in this particular incarnation.

The more that your life force energy flows wherever it needs to, the happier you will be, even if the road is sometimes a little stony or steep, that effort and the surrender to the flow will bring light unto your sight, truth from your lips, warmth to the heart. And remember what St Germain always used to say:

“Until further notice, celebrate everything!”

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!

consciouslove

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……………………

The Path Of The Heart.

Trusting……….that I am always connected to the source of all things, my heart blazing a path that wends its way through all kinds of landscapes. At times the way may be littered with rocks and pot holes, challenging me to be like water and to flow over and through without losing the essence that I am. Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death……..I shall not falter, indeed I will embrace each ending as it doth present it’s face to me. And in the letting go of unnecessary things my life force will find new channels, the power of love and creativity making a fire that will burn forever.

Beginning always in stillness……….the vast empty space of creation beckons me unto the void, where there is nothing………. and yet all of the potential for manifestation lies in this emptiness. No need to do anything, being unfolds without direction and while I may open to desire, while I may know what I think I want, always shall I surrender to the higher wisdom that knows truth in a way that my ego can never imagine.

Bringing together my desire and the urging of spirit, my inspiration bursts forth and the bars of my prison are melting into joy…….glittering threads of destiny weaving a tapestry that sings a new song, as a fresh day dawns. The need to know is a fetter that shall chain me no more, I trust life, I trust myself, I am whole…………  I will ever be a part of the spirit of God, Goddess, of all that is…….love is an ocean in which I shall swim for evermore, in and out-of-body, ’tis the spirit that goes on eternal, the flame that has no end, and no beginning……….

My gratitude overflows……….and I am at peace.

Sweet Dreams.

As the clear winter water

Nourishes the seed within the earth

I am nourished by new-found awareness

of who I truly am.

This awareness has not yet fully matured,

Which will reveal all wisdom

In its time,

the Power of the unmanifest

Even now works within my spiritual heart,

And I am at peace.

The Essene Book of Days by Danaan Parry: http://www.earthstewards.org/ESN-Danaan.asp

My last toning circle was all about planting seeds, then watering them and giving them a powerful loving focus, and of course juicy frequencies through our sounds. It may sound a little strange to be planting seeds in winter, but it is the inner garden that I am referring to. The stillness that may come with the cold winter months draws us into ourselves, so it’s a perfect time to be tending our garden within.

planting-seed

This strong focus on the seeds I have planted helps to keep me from straying back into old patterns, that still beckon me with their siren song. How addicted we can be to things that so obviously do not serve us, how hard to let go of dreams that never truly held the promise that we so desperately tried to see in them. I am so very tired and that makes me particularly vulnerable to regret, when weary one tends more towards negative self-talk, feeling rejected in this moment, even the cat has left the room!

Don’t worry, it’s nothing a good night’s sleep won’t fix, as my mother reminded me tonight, I have been subject to a kind of psychic attack  for a number of months now and that is the sort of thing that tends to wear a girl out! Sounds dramatic doesn’t it, but having an energy vampire playing with your heart and your emotions is no fun for anyone, it’s pretty much over now and I am stronger and wiser because of it.

Energy-Vampire

The cat is back and she is purring, this is a sign that all is well in my world, my inner garden is planted with the most amazing seeds and I have the strongest feeling that some of them may practically grow overnight! The world is a wonderful place and I belong in it, the morning will be bright even if it is still raining and after my morning yoga class I will be ready to take on anything.

Carpe diem! (Seize the day).

Let The Feelings Flow.

As the cold deepens, the energy of the dark womb draws us within, Demeter is mourning for her daughter and her grief is cold as ice, as cold as the underworld where Persephone has gone. The emptiness contains all that we have pushed aside in busier and brighter times, when distractions are easy to come by, and the shadow merely an interesting shape created by the sun’s rays. But now the trees are bare, and though the sun still shines from deep blue skies,  the pull comes from within, our shadow clamouring for our attention.

Surrender to that call, let go into the stillness that you will find as you descend into your own private version of the underworld. What is it that you cannot own or accept as a part of who you be, what aspects of self have you demonised or judged as being unworthy. That which remains unacknowledged can never be transformed or set free, so let yourself be………….all of who you are, this is the key.

We all of us have parts of ourselves that we don’t like very much, if you try to ignore this truth, if you push it down into the deepest part of your being, it will become even more powerful. It will control you from a place that you may not easily be able to access, the longer this goes on the more layers will gather and the harder it becomes to identify and therefore release. Here is a piece I wrote about how I did this very thing with the guilt I felt over my father’s death when I was 15:

My guilt was a mountain the size of Everest and I buried it as deeply as that mountain is tall.

The guilt festered away in the dungeon of my soul and within a brief few years it had eaten away it all, my self-esteem, my sense of worth, my love of self was gone.

It was in the midst of terrible storms on Australia Day that I realised that I had at last rebuilt my self-esteem, 33 years after burying that which I could not face or acknowledge to myself. To read more about that check out my post “Rebirth” on January 30 2013.

Rebirth

This one act of mine shaped my entire life, I cannot regret it for it has brought me to where I am, but I offer my experience as a lesson hard learned. No matter how painful it may be, allow your  feelings to move through you, express them in the moment and let them go, just keep doing that until you are clear, as long as it takes…………..

Shanti, shanti, shanti…………peace, peace, peace…………

I ThankYou!

I feel enormous gratitude to those of you who have chosen to follow these whimsical words, I’ve done very little to broadcast this fancy of mine to the wider world, and yet you have found me, and followed! And there are those on Facebook who feed back to me appreciation, and the fact that my own journey contains reflections that they can feel in their own souls. Without your presence to witness, the journey would not be what it has been, and the joy and the inspiration that I feel as I write, far outweighs the pressure to keep up the daily posts, of this post modern new age fairy witch. Or perhaps I really am a princess, in my current abode I do feel as though I’m living in a mythic tale, where the knight in shining armour comes to chop wood and run the generator.

thankyou

On the first of May I spoke of Saint Germaine and the Violet Flame, since that day there has indeed been a new energy present, and while very intense it has also been most beneficial. I feel as though it’s speeded things up, the expansions and contractions can almost be from moment to moment at times, and while this can be perceived as overwhelming, if you surrender to the flow you find yourself through and out the other side in no time at all. A bit like Alice falling down the rabbit hole!

I am certainly becoming clearer about my vision of my life, there has to be a way to make this joy of being a wordsmith into something that supports me to live a comfortable life. I could see myself in a place like this fairy cottage, tapping away on my laptop in the midst of nature, going out to run my sound circles or to see a client, coming home to a warm cosy haven surrounded by stillness. Having the time to practice my yoga, meditation, to be in a relationship which is a practice of love and surrender, to merge with life and to be in ecstatic union and joy with all things!

And so it shall be!
