4 things to contemplate over this week, the gifts this time is offering us …
1 – MINDFULNESS IN THE MOMENT
We have spent decades learning how to hug, learning how to touch in the world, and the feeling of the heart to heart closeness, the warmth that is shared in a joyful hello or a goodbye. Now we are being asked to distance ourselves, have space between us all if we meet up or want to chat…So what if we are being given the perfect opportunity to practise Presence, MINDFULNESS in the MOMENT….we have to be in the moment to choose our behaviour, our new distancing, we have to stop the habit to going in for the hug and learning to stand apart…
So my suggestion as an action..look into the eyes of the person you are separate from, send the gratitude, appreciation , or love as a transmission from your heart and through your eyes. Have the intention that you are sending an etheric hug. Practise this, it is a very powerful thing to offer and receive.
2 – ADAPTABILITY
Learning how to adapt and be in the flow of change. At our inner soul nature we are strong. The species we are has adaptability at its core to flourish, to keep going. We cannot cling to a past idea, notion, or way of life now, we can ONLY start to take new actions , keep dreaming in the new world, stay in the movement of forward actions. The world will never be the same, so we are being gifted an opportunity to learn how to change without resistance. Adaptability is one of our survival techniques…we can employ that, we can be present and take new actions, have new thoughts, work on higher feelings, be clear with the communication and words we leave in the enrgy field of life.
3 – DISCERNMENT
Discernment of information. You can take in so much, then the rest is overwhelm. Practising discernment means once again we can listen to our inner world and practise trust. If something feels off it is, if you are feeling there is TOO much negativity, switch off, do something that is uplifting, limit you intake of information, Find out what the changes are, then do something that brings you back into alignment with you soul. This lesson is a great one as we will need our true discernment not just of information, but as we create a new way of living, you will have to make sure you do what feels aligned for you.
4 – PRIORITIES
Time to sort out the true priorities in your life
relationships, spending time getting reconnected, finding new common threads, dreaming a new life forward together, letting family members know they are loved and appreciated, finding new ways to play, have fun, be together
making your home environment into a rich, loving and nurturing sanctuary,
health, wellness, vitality…taking all the precautions, having beautiful nourishing foods, movement, finding ways to exercise … skipping, home practise of yoga, Pilates and other forms of strength and breath work ( loads of you tube videos)
finding the space to allow some creative instincts to arise, colouring in, playing games, learning new things, ie calligraphy, watercolours, mosaic, beading, cooking, sewing, knitting…and so many other things.
reconnecting to family and friends, reconnecting to your soul , reconnecting to your creative side, reconnecting to your intuition and so many other gifts.
I have started to write a daily intention, prayer or blessing onto a piece of ribbon or cloth and tie it to a tree. Each morning that intention is a focal point for me, and a gift for the collective field of grace.
Just imagine for a moment, if loads of us do that…tie ribbons or pieces of cloth ( narrow like a ribbon) to trees, branches, pot plants and like prayer flags they wind takes that intention and spreads it around the world … such a blessing, a conscious action, a universal energy uplift.
I know there have been some ‘interesting’ things happening in the world, the fear, chaos, worry, helplessness is on the rise, along with anger directed at ‘them”..(.those who are creating havoc)…the more we engage externally, getting caught up in the anger of the world, the harder it is to find our true centre, and we stop seeing the wonderment, the acts of compassion, the incredible things being done quietly to support and assist others. The world is focused on the drama, yet there are a multitude of amazing things being done, happening, being birthed. There are no real answers for what is occurring, however there are ways to hold your self without becoming lost in the web of chaos. At the heart of all Humans, the desire for love and respect is a constant yearning. Yet, we can be fast to blame, quick to judge, even instantaneous is finding fault with others. The daily tuning into your centre, your place where love and respect exists, allows your connection to something vast and infinite. We may not understand why things are happening, our human mind has been trained to see and believe what we are told, but we can take care of how much energy and the quality of energy we give to all these events. Sure there are horrid things happening to many innocent people, animals and our planet…there are no ‘sensible excuses or reasons” that our human mind can understand…and it keeps happening What can each of us do…keep finding that place of peace in self, take care of what we need to, offer powerful thoughts and intentions, prayers and healing energy into the world around us, practice being non judgmental for a day at a time,, think about what is coming out of your mouth before you say it, look at peoples actions that are annoying and perhaps accept that they are behaving in a way from things that have pushed them to the edge, none of us know what others have been going through Taking a few moments each day, to close your eyes, shutting out the world, tuning into your centre, breathing with an intention, can really offer support while the weird crazy around us occurs. My meditation practice has been a refuge and over the last month or so it has deepened dramatically..If you want to begin a practise, there are so many ways to do that, I can offer suggestions, there are classes all over the place, the thing is, time to start is now. If you goggle the Maharishi Effect, a study conducted in a war torn country, the results were INCREDIBLE. The rates of violence, hospital admissions, etc dropped when a certain umber of people were meditating each day. There is power in holding space, meditating, setting intentions… as mere mortals, we have forgotten, that we can interact from an energetic perspective and initiate change. We are connected to something universal, getting glimpses of it occur when you can tune IN to you. Choosing to read, watch, see, things of beauty, inspiration, perhaps google some of the amazing actions people are taking around the world to build communities,, educate areas, discover those who are helping developing nations in all areas of life, perhaps gather with friends and make conversation about uplifting things.,. The energy we offer fills the world around us, Maybe if we take some responsibility for our output, we just might feel more helpful, than overwhelmed with being helpless.
Have you ever watched a rocket ship launch, leaving earth, its actual movement, how it will respond to the initial take off, the push through the atmosphere is the unknown quantity, it is the “hold your breath and hope for the best”, yet the destination is predetermined, locked into a blueprint that has been designed to reach the goal. Did you see the amount of force required, the build-up of power and energy to get the craft off the ground and airborne? Once the constraints holding the spacecraft in place are released, there is a huge push against gravity, with all the friction and tension, to finally leave earth’s atmosphere behind, while moving upwards to the expansive infinite space.
This explains what each of us and the planet is going through right now. The earth is fine, it has lived through many civilisations, massive earth changes for millions of years, so there is an intelligence that has it all sorted. But for humans, it is a different story. The “gravity” we are pushing through is our old patterns, beliefs, habits, structures, strategies, and conditionings. Right now it is challenging, as what we think we know of ourselves, is under scrutiny, things just don’t feel the same anymore, the old way of doing things isn’t working, it is more challenging to hold onto the old ways, and we are getting disheartened as we are unable to see what is ahead for us. I say How exciting!!
This year 2017, heralded a new universal year cycle of 9 years After 2 very intense previous 9 year cycles, awareness is being activated from within each of us, our DNA level as some of it due to the universal wake up calls. https://youtu.be/aKOHje1UEHI
This year about new beginnings, new directions, planting seeds for the future, yet we seem to be in a place of disconnection, feelings of being lost and new directions…what does that mean, when many of cannot see what next week holds for us. It means we are on track, we are shedding, realising, revealing, letting go of all we are NOT, to allow space for all that we are, so we can become our new self. This takes patience, gentleness, awareness, mindfulness and trust.
Our planet is shifting from a 3-dimensional paradigm or density, call it an old world, old earth, across a “bridge”, I like to call 4th dimension which is the heart opening experience, then onwards to the 5th dimension, the space of being. This also means we are leaving a masculine paradigm, a cycle of 5,125 years where power, control, separation, fear ruled us into submission, repression, oppression, disempowering the true sense of who we are while disconnecting us from our heart. It has been a time where the power of mental energy has been strong and revered gifting us overthinking, which is now tiring. This new world, the cycle for the next 5,125 years which we are welcoming, or in some cases, resisting, is a feminine presence, which holds collaboration, unity, flow, peace, and acceptance. It is an emotional frequency, one that brings us back to our heart, one that connects us to the conscious collective with mindful actions and back to nature It has been said that the longest journey we ever take in life is 18 inches long. It is from our head to our heart, Now, that is rocket ship journey for many!!!!
There are so many energetic peaks and troughs happening for all of us. Really energised one day, feel like you can conquer all things, then 2 days later it is all you can do to drag yourself to the loo!!!, wondering, what am I doing? Why am I here? and the universal question which begins the Holy Grail Soul adventure… Who am I?
When our soul speaks that question and we hear it, the universe pauses, holds its breath in anticipation of the response. If your answer is yes, then get ready for a discovery tour like no other, and I will warn you, once you start that ride, you can NEVER plead ignorance, and there is NO turning back. You close the door on the old and embrace the new. What we must be mindful of, is the intense work happening in our energy field, our higher self. Our physicality is dense and heavy, our higher self is a faster vibration. How can something high and strong and in our lives, if we are pushing, struggling, striving, doing, …there must be a space and place for things to align and merge?
If you have been feeling exhausted, not so much physically incapable, but a deeper sense of tiredness, feeling internal electrical buzzing, the ear ringing, the solar plexus area being stimulated with higher energy, the need to sleep, the intensity of loud noise or being intolerant of noisy spaces, feeling headachy at times, nauseous, dizzy, physical pains that seem to move about, well that is fabulous, you are shifting, clearing old energies and opening to new. Right now our human density is feeling the challenge of our energetic higher nervous system or light body in full throttle.
As the old dis-integrates, and dissolves, we have the ability to integrate higher energies of awareness, a lighter sense of being, a connected place of consciousness. Get ready for the force of energy to shift you from the old to the new. Way bigger than you ever thought where, flow, freedom, expansiveness, universal awareness is the new normal.
It starts in our everyday life, our thoughts, actions, words, and feelings. If you want to feel better, then choose what you CAN do. We cannot change some of the events happening, we cannot influence the governments or the media with our beliefs, HOWEVER, we can take action in our ‘supposedly small’ daily lives. What we say, think, feel and do, is sent into the energy field, or collective consciousness, which creates the world we step into each day. You want more abundance, freedom, empowerment, then become aligned with it and offer that through all your daily interactions. Global change will amplify when more people are living mindfully, acting from responsibility, owning their feelings and changing their thinking. As this grows, we will see rapid shifts everywhere.
Light a candle for peace, or awareness, or clarity and devote it towards the world or an event that is troubling your heart and soul. Say a prayer, set an intention, then repeat it each day. These small mindful actions, preserve your heart, keep your mind focused on what is possible and your soul open. This is not woo-woo, it is about creating the energy you want to be walking in each day. Being gentle with self is part of this call to action. Taking the time to hold that peace, calm, clarity and awareness as an offering to the energy field. It will have a greater effect than bitching, whining and complaining about how bad things are. Yes, I know this sounds like nothing would ever be accomplished…you know what, some days you get nothing done, and that is how it has to be, it really is OK to stop, say that is enough for now, I need space to recharge, reset, revitalise, recalibrate listen to what is arriving…..then other days you get more done than you could possibly imagine. You are the rocket ship, enjoy the blast off and be ready to the expansive you that is birthing
