Healing (Part Two)

Cavemen are the archetype of the forerunner of the human race. This not only includes the ways and habits of a neanderthal man but also his emotions and thought patterns. To himself he was sophisticated in his choices of tools and where and how to hunt, his choice of mate and his knowledge of the seasons. His sophistication is no less now, your sophistication. As the human race continues, future man will be amazed at what you have achieved and wonder why there was less achievement in the fieldwork of the brain and emotions. As more people become lost, afraid, alone, unwanted, damaged by life’s scenarios. They will wonder why there was not more value given to the emotional and mental happiness of a human being…….each human being. Caveman did not have the mental illness you have now. He was exactly as one saw. There was no need to analyse emotions or thoughts because as soon as they were felt inside the mind, they were voiced. There was no need to act a part or be something one was not. People now have to suffer a variety of little deaths each day as their true persona is hidden from them, piece by piece, cut by hidden cut. As they shore themselves up from the damage inflicted by societies wants and needs instead of putting their own wants and needs first.

Mental illness is hidden but so many suffer from its verisimilitudes. Everyone has anxiety. Everyone has experienced a depression. Everyone has felt dissatisfaction with themselves and their situation. Yes it is good to better oneself in every way but not to the detriment of the true persona. The part of you that is linked to the light and knows the way home. Knows the path to be taken. Knows with certainty that they are more than the body. This certainty is lost as people become lost in their experiences and their emotions. More people are needed to step forward and help them regain their path. Not just in the mental health profession but all those who profess to be “leaders of the light”. More of these genuine, sincere, uplifting and healing people are needed. Not only those who heal with their hands, but those who heal with their voices, their thoughts, their ideas, their vibration. Those who can connect easily and well, soul to soul. At first this is balm to a troubled soul and eventually, over time, can lead to a healing process. However, the process is only effective with a true, honest and genuine connection. Not those who chase notoriety and greed. Yes, “lightworkers” is a good choice, for indeed that is what they do. Work hard to allow the light of the soul to shine forth and discover all those dark corners where shame and guilt and fear and sadness are kept. These emotions are not needed. They hamper growth. Understand and take the lesson but once the emotion has been experienced, let it go. You have no need to continually experience it. Learn from the experience and move forwards. It is not easy to let it go you say. I beg to differ. As the moment you eventually put the burden down happens in a second of change. Why wait years for that second of change if the opportunity to let go of the emotional burden is possible immediately? There is no benefit to harbour the negative emotion in your soul. You will become damaged by doing so, embittered, fearful. The choice, as always, is yours.

Mental illness is reversible. The day will come when the need for drugs has vanished and the whole person is treated on a vibrational level that affects cell renewal and health and brainwaves. A new evolutionary medicine. Meanwhile, neanderthal man, that you are in this age with no knowledge of how to truly effect a lasting cure, has to endure a lifetime of recidivity. A lifetime of rejection, as they reject the true path of their soul and its connection to themselves, each other and their place in the universe. Once a soul can accept himself as he is, in his true form without society’s judgment then there is hope for his mental wellbeing.

Enlightenment

Ribbons of colour………ribbons of light exploding from the top of your head while sparkling light is in motion around you. You are a galaxy of colour as you move in the physical world. With the colours ebbing and flowing as you move, think, create, have an idea, worry, connect. Every aspect of your life flows in colour and vibration around you. These colours are more than the colours the human eye can detect. They are millions of shades and incredible hues dancing at the edge of your human sight. Just as your eye cannot see them so your ear cannot hear them. For their vibration sings the song of you out into the world. Easy to know who you clash with, easier to know who you chime with, make music with. Each part of your body sings its song from your liver to your eyes. The whole combining to make the note or song that is you. This is a true version of you that you cannot hide, that we perceive. Your hidden depths are on display to us. We do not judge. We honour you for the fact that you are at the leading edge of creation in the physical world. We are the support backup and you are the explorers. Come to find how the physical world can be moulded and manipulated to your thoughts, despite the total involvement of most of your senses being rooted in, what you perceive as, a physical body. It is all sensory perception brought about through manipulation of colour, vibration, hormones, brain waves, molecules, thought patterns, intent, desire and focus. A complex and difficult manoeuvring of thought coalescing into the human world you perceive. It is temporary…….unreal. A snapshot held in place for you to experience and then it falls away. You do not. The death is of the snapshot and the physical world, not of you. Change your perception and step to the other side of the equation. See how the physical disintegrates and you live on. How temporary your life is despite the mirage of the years you seem to have lived. Despite the question of life after death……. there is only life. The unreal falls away and you emerge into the truth of your being, having been under the spell of the physical world for a few moments.

Do not cry when a death occurs. It is only the body disintegrating, allowing the body to recognise its place within the whole. Where you can see the only life has no death. There is only experience and change and positive outcomes from learning. You are all angels in this regard for you all return to the source. You all learn so much on how to manipulate thought and focus and desire. The understanding of which can only be fully known and interpreted once you are back home in a full understanding of who you are and a better understanding of the physical world. That is why many choose to return…..to explore……to find out “Why?” One lifetime raises a question for another lifetime and in the tradition of exploration they cannot let a chance of discovery go by.

Change your perception. Look at a physical life through the eyes of how you conceive the spirit world to be. See how fear drives the emotions and actions. See how desire leads to pathways of strong need and wanting. Playing out in an uncontrollable way as emotions take the lead. From spirit we don’t have access to that……to the fear, to the basic emotions. Therefore you can see that a fear of death and loss and injury is a useful tool in finding out how one can grow and know oneself fully when subject to such a basic collection of emotions. There has to be fear to experience all the other human emotions and every human has a fear.

Enlightenment is one at peace without fear. In a place where human emotion does not frame every thought. But where compassion and non-interference radiates from them in a calm, peaceful, loving, non-judgmental acceptance of the human condition. Very few are at one with this. Know them by their words. They will resonate truly with your soul.

Love

A lifetime holds a promise of many choices. Choices that will enhance your learning. The learning may not seem to have come from a good choice but it can still be a good learning……….a good education in the way of the world and all the emotions involved thereof.

Love is one of these learnings. A pitfall of decisions from beginning to end. Through love with a mate there will be many choices and decisions and many different outcomes and much heartache. That is why you are here in the physical. For all this knowledge to accumulate so you realise there is more than sexual love, the love between two people. So much more.

Society indeed fixates upon the sexual love and sexual union as the highest love to obtain without recognising that the universe is love. That love exists in many forms for you in the physical life. A feeling of love can be held for a tree or a spot sacred to your heart. For an animal or a piece of ground. For a friend or a kindred soul. A love of mountains that ignites into passion. A passionate embrace of doing one’s best for the world. A loving ember as you watch a life fulfilled be laid to rest. So much love and passion in this physical world of yours. You are swimming in a sea of love. You only need to open your heart to it to feel it. But herein lies the issue. People feel there is only love from one source not realising they are surrounded by waves of love. They feel that once a relationship has ended or become damaged in some way, it is best to close it off. Close down the love connection because it would only cause further emotional pain. Most people do not welcome emotional pain. Therefore they close their poor aching heart down thinking that this will protect them from further hurt. It does not. The hurt comes when they find they are unable to connect and unable to love so completely and passionately as their heart centre is closed and another centre/chakra has stepped up to take its place. Perhaps it is the “survival” chakra, the base of all things. A person can then place survival over loving. Survival is pitted against emotional hurt and it becomes important to survive instead of love. Or another chakra (solar plexus) involving acquisition and putting money and ownership of things to give security over love. There are many different devices people employ to prevent themselves loving in the fullest sense of the word. Some may love in a half measured way, ensuring they are protected from hurt…….conditional love, possessive love, familial love, a love of power, a love of words, a love of running.

So much love.

You only have to open your heart. Just allow the door to open and you can feel it. Go for a walk and it’s in the air around you, the wind caressing you or the raindrops beating on your head with joy. The flight of a bird overhead and the brightness of the greenery around you whether lit by sunlight or washed by rain. Love cannot be dismissed or disarmed. It cannot be destroyed or removed. It is continually, universally around you, within you. You breathe love and eat love. It is the essence of you. But you have lost it amongst the physical demands of this physical world. At times it is anathema to you because it makes you powerless, unable to control its trajectory. But let it loose! Love everyone and everything. If there is a negative emotion alongside it, then realise it walks alongside love. It is a separate emotion that exists in you through a fear of loving, a fear of hurtful emotion, a fear of imbalance in your life, a fear of loss of control. A fear of how completely it can take over your life. A passion that causes you to run towards it gladly. So don’t view it as running away from what you don’t want. View it as running towards your need and passion in life. The only way to see it. Because you are fulfilling the divine need in you. Running towards love. Love that will take you forward in your journey in the most delightful way. Ignore the detractors because you are in love ……..with a mountain…….or a dance step…….or the eyes of a wonderful person. Run towards love and experience life in all its wonderful form. Keep your heart intact and open by embracing love. Love is all you need. How sweet life is when you spend your time loving each moment. No regrets mount up, no whatifs, no maybe I should have done that differently. If you loved passionately in each moment how is that anything but a life well lived?

Fate

Penury, lack of money. Lack of anything that you feel in need of. Penury comes in many forms. But it is all a lesson of you feeling you have less of something in this physical world. Know that you are born with everything you need in the moment. You have already decided that, in spirit before you came to the earth plane. You decided upon the energy you would be born into and the energy that would surround you. From the moment of birth it is your physical world to mould. Initially your needs are basic and usually met……food, warmth, emotional contact. If these aren’t met then you have to exert your influence on the universe to provide them and you happily expect it to be so. This may not always happen, and so, from the very beginning, your emotional state is affected as a result of hormonal and brainwave function. And the need for providing sustenance in its many forms is brought into being. Even so you may circumvent this cycle of need if you can learn to focus at an early age on what you truly want and expect from life. Many know this before they are ten years of age, others wait until they are sixty years old. Always it is your choice from your learnings. Fate does not come into the cycle. There is no Fate as such.

Fate is but a word for a predilection for finding the “I told you so” in everything. A word that can be used to abdicate responsibility. A word that never allows you to change or move forward. Fate has a negative connotation in that it is an inevitable outcome. It is not. There is always choice and a new way of being. The Fate that you find at the leading edge is of your own making, not one that has come into being alongside of you. Nor is it carried within your aura or genes. You have multiple possibilities and multiple choices. They do not all lead to one event or word or choice that can only happen in one way. That is not living. That is pre-ordained living. A way of being put on you that means you are chained to one possibility, one outcome. This is not the case. There is always choice. Your choice was initially made when you decided to come into the physical. When a certain vibration drew you and you wanted to play and enjoy and have fun with life at that vibration. However, once born in the physical, you have to then understand the vibration you are living in….. to manipulate it. The surroundings seem quite different and difficult to deal with compared to the spiritual plane we emanate from.

Why bother with the physical world?

Because it’s fun, interesting, demanding. Because it adds to our understanding of the nature of the universe. If one hasn’t experienced physical life then one has a clean slate with regard to understanding the physical realm. It is required, a necessity, as we all grow to have a greater understanding of all creation.

There is a moment when you believe you are blessed by karma, by fate, in a positive way. This I would urge you to take on board as it is beneficial in your lifetime to have positive ideals. To hold positive beliefs, however they are engendered.

Analogies

This is the first day of the rest of your life. Treat it accordingly. Fresh and sweet. New and evolving. Enjoy this new beginning when anything may happen. Enjoy your steps into new moments when life is at its sweetest. That moment of decision/indecision, deciding when you choose a path, an idea, make a choice……which biscuit to have with your tea? How blissful and sweet and wanting is that complete moment as you decide, with all the plethora of choice before you. It is a moment of decision/indecision that is magnified if you savour it. It is at the edge of creation because in that moment you may decide on the biscuit that you really really like. The one with the nuts and the chocolate and the sprinkles. The one that contains all your favourite wants and needs in a biscuit. Unfortunately it is not on the plate of biscuits in front of you. But you have formed the idea of the biscuit you want from the plate in front of you. A few years ago the biscuit you would have chosen would have been plain with maybe a few currants. Now you are thinking of an entirely different biscuit that you have thought into being, that is not yet manifested in the physical. But you have put it on your shopping list and you know you will find it and buy it. It is not a matter of, “What if there isn’t a biscuit like it?” It’s a matter of, “When will I find it?” But you also know when your shopping day is and you know a biscuit will be found that approximates your idea of the biscuit you want, complete with nuts and chocolate and sprinkles. You know you will search further afield in another shop if initially it doesn’t present itself to you on the supermarket shelves. You know you will find it. You will just have to travel a little further, perhaps wait a day or two longer, but it is there on the shelf of a small delicatessen waiting for your purchase. Your claim is already placed on the biscuit. You have to stretch and grow into the place you need to be, to be in the right shop at the right time. When the sun shines brightly and shows you the exact biscuit you have wanted and needed, right on the shelf at the back in the dark and the dust. Waiting for the shaft of sunlight, that is you, to be there at the right time and look into the dark corner and see the perfection that fits your wants and needs so perfectly. Your claim on your biscuit is the possibility you have awakened. Being in the same place as the biscuit at a time when you both resonate with each other. As the biscuit says,”I am crumbly, nutty, chocolatey biscuit…… Come find me.” And your vibration is one of looking for just such a biscuit. There is alignment of purpose as one finds the other. A temporary sating of need. Until the biscuit has been eaten. And then you say, “Too sugary, no currants! I would like a biscuit that is nutty, chocolatey with sprinkles and currants and has less sugar. A good healthy option for a biscuit” And your new choice and new alignment come into being. And so your life changes. Nothing stands still. So enjoy the quintessential moment of decision/indecision as you can taste the moment of becoming moving into a physical state of being as your choice is made. This is growth, creativity, progress.

You have your favourite pie in front of you. One slice is cut and ready to be eaten. This is the best pie ever. The one that makes a souffle of your taste buds. The one where you savour every mouthful and swallow slowly knowing that the best ingredients went into that pie. This of course is your life and how to love it. An easy analogy but so apt. Don’t eat it too fast and choke. Don’t just sit there and salivate looking at it. Eat it! Enjoying each flavoursome mouth-filling bite. The best way to eat pie! Slow and savouring each bite….and so with life, an easy analogy.

These analogies are there in each of your days. They trip you up and sidle into view when you need a reminder or a kick start to get with the programme. Unfortunately you do not always see them…….despite them being so obvious. But this requires clear thought and clear seeing which is not always happening in each and every moment, if at all, during your day. So if, “by chance “, a suggestion of an analogy has occurred within your day and you have consciously acknowledged it……be grateful. So very grateful and happy that a reminder of how to live life, how to trust in the universe and how to play with it, has managed to bisect the physical energy barriers and come into your perspective. As you come into alignment with self, more of these energy packets/analogies will become obvious to you. And gradually, like a row of stepping stones, they will confirm and lead you further into a deeper understanding. Eventually analogy recognition will not be needed as your clear-seeing becomes just that. And you no longer have to see and understand in riddles.

Chakras (Part Two)

The collective unconscious mind moves as a one-celled amoeba. It has no preference for in which way it moves. It inclines towards the greater good, as in all beings, survival is the uppermost thought. The greater good is implied or directed by your moral compass. Each individual wields their own moral compass differently. Each person has one. Though their justifications for various actions are solidified by which way their compass blows. An individual having an insight into his own being and the whys and wherefores of how their compass operates, is a more finely tuned individual than one who relies upon his judgment only……..where a bias can occur. Individuals are always known for their repressive tactics when they have a desire or need to fulfil. The moral compass is put back on the shelf. However, each individual is a part of the collective and contributes to the overall group consciousness of humanity. So, no matter what they profess on the outside, and their actions thereof, it is the internal thought processes that really matter, that have an input into the overall group consciousness.

There are many different group consciousnesses, subdivisions of the consciousness of humanity. Not divisions as you might think…..men, women etc. No, the divisions are more grouped around the active energy centres of each human. As each human possesses the requisite number of energy centres so different individuals have a different way of living. A different perspective, a different understanding, based on the chakras that are most prominent, most thoroughly used, most in sway. It could be that the throat chakra is in great use and the vibration that comes in on that chakra is identified with and by others. They hear it, feel it, resonate with it. That vibration gives them a way of being, an understanding on that vibrational level. An understanding of life, the world, people, everything that they have a thought about. Other chakras will also impinge with their vibration on the human thought process….which includes the body. However, the energy centre that is most prominent will have first control in the physical world. It is a two-way system of course. You are a bead on a string of pearls. There is an incoming vibration and an outgoing vibration. Continually you are attuning to the new vibration. At times this may be easy and at times difficult. Especially when you are being asked to fine tune your energy and become more than you feel you are.

The energy centres of your body keep you well; keep you attuned to that energy, keep you in balance. You have free will, always, to step away from the energy and concentrate or focus on the energy of another vibration, another flow. This, however, will be a temporary diversion, much as the change from writing to procreation to eating. Energy centres are brought into play for all aspects of life. One having most influence, then another. They are vital aspects of energy in your physical and auric fields. Not necessarily small and body-sized but sometimes quite large and stretching outside the body. This is rare as the natural formation is to link you and your centres through and to the auric fields. Human intervention can affect the size of the energy centres….alcohol, drugs etc. Can adversely influence the active balanced chakra into a shape change, becoming sloppy in its revolutions and consequent shaping. But still the chakra will do its best to complete its cycles and give you the finest connection it can give despite any handicaps you may have conferred on it.

The chakra that governs you will always be the strongest, most well-formed, vibrationally charged energy centre that is working to the optimum. If they are all so equally very highly tuned, you are well balanced and aware of their workings. Then you have choice and can choose which energy centre it is beneficial to work with. Rather than be dictated to by your energy centres when you are unaware and unbalanced, as in anger or overwhelming sadness.

The chakras continually provide your lessons as they pull in energy and then you radiate both individual and a combined energy out to others. So…..like attracts like. And the individual energy is shared to the group consciousness which is an energy level of the whole. And together they radiate out a oneness of being. For example, individuals with a lifestyle focused on greed, acquisition, rage, duplicity. They will pull in energy to support their wants and needs. Their universal need would be for power, acquisition, violence, revenge etc. Those vibrations would be pulled into their chakras as their desires, wants and needs……how they expect the world to be. But their system is constantly balancing and rebalancing. Always to their highest good to effect a fine-tuning of their vibration. Their compass may not be in evidence or it may be in effect in some form, but they will be actively fine-tuning to a finer vibration yet still governing their wants and needs through base actions e.g. the phrase, “honour amongst thieves “.

There is a positive vibration in everyone. There is a natural leaning towards the positive growth as a person. The chakras are powerful energy factories in this. Powering the system, pulling in energy and vibrating out the nuance of an individual. Even with an individual operating from a base action and thought, the individual is still moving towards a more finely tuned vibration. It may not seem evident initially and may be happening slowly, but an individual is always changing. That is life. There is no permanence……..all is change. That individual is still moving with divine purpose towards enlightenment of his thought processes and of his being. This may come through hard choices, difficult times, painful events. There may be a small shift or an enormous leap in vibration, but everyone is moving at different speeds towards enlightenment that is a knowing of their place in the cosmos. Baby steps are absolutely fine.

Everything is in balance and humanity will take the vibrational leap as one entity. Yes, individuals can come to “enlightenment” or “knowing” at various times in the history of the world. Many do quietly. But they too are held in the balance of vibration that is humanity.

Chakras (Part One)

The chakras are in momentum within your auric field. They can turn enormously fast or exquisitely slow. Neither one nor the other is perfect or imperfect. It is apt for you, your thoughts, your way of being, your body. The colours of the chakras too, are not uniform, are dependent on perception, who perceives them. They are not uniform, the colours ebb and flow. Throw startling, amazing patterns of light through your whole cosmic body and together with your vibration, which shines out in colour, sings out in sound. You resonate with these colours and sounds and we see you. You in your honest, most true form. We do not see the physical world as such, as we are not physical with physical eyes, but we are aware of the vibration in which you live. The vibration you surround yourself with. That which resonates with you and that which is harmonious and that vibration which is repellant to you. We see all this. We see the strands of connection travelling from you to others, to places,to moments, to events. How that connection vibrates, whether with longing or with hate, happiness or sadness. All this is visible to us. This you are unaware of but you do feel it. You feel those connections and you know where you are drawn to, and those moments, times, people, events that repel you.

The auric field is sensitive and finely tuned. Protected in it’s own sheath so it does not become damaged within the whole auric energy field. As can happen, as you know, when people receive a shock of some kind: a violent, traumatic or destructive event; sudden near death happenings; bad news that rocks a person’s foundation on which their life has rested. Many things may induce such a shock.

The chakras are also anchor points and multi-connective nodes through which understanding, energy, power, emotions and vibration are filtered. These nodes attempt to ensure there is always connection and that the system does not become overloaded with emotions. Sometimes a chakra, languidly spinning is exactly what is needed and sometimes a chakra phizzing with energy is also needed. Neither is excluded and may be temporary or may last for weeks, maybe years. Each person, being unique, has unique chakras. Unique in colour and movement. The common factor is that each physical breathing body in the physical plane has them. The nodes are important in that they keep the body connected to itself, the auric field and the surrounding fields of energy, through which you make connection to spirit and to God. All that is important is that they exist and as they breathe…..you breathe.

How to look after them is simple. You live your life being true to yourself, which allows them free movement. Allows them to spin, fluctuate and still, as is their wont. If your emotion stagnates it blocks their activity. If emotions become thick with negativity, the chakras cannot be their best for your body. The auric field carries your map. How you would like your world, your body, your view of life, how to progress. If the nodes are hampered in their work, as they connect to each other and connect to other nodes, they will not speak true. They will be a shade of your truth, or conversely, be too excitable and your passion will evolve in a different way, as a different chakra is influenced to be different, become something it was not asked to be. As you needed the strong influences of a certain chakra on your life and instead negative or excitable emotion or a different vibration not attuned to you has affected the important chakra and another has taken its place. If the unwanted blockage is not cleared or the dark emotion/vibration surrounding the chakra is not cleared, then an alternative chakra will come to the fore and have a major influence on your life.

You do not run your chakras; nor do they run you. It is a relationship of harmonious balance. So always clear your chakras of negative energy. Get to the root cause of blockages and upsets in your life. Chase them down. Clear them out of your auric field. Then celebrate the true quality of a balanced chakra field, which is so very beautiful to observe. There are many chakras/nodes from the tips of your fingers to the tips of your toes. From the top of your head to the soles of your feet. From your liver to your sex organs. All resonate You. Truly knowing yourself, understanding yourself and being your true self keeps the chakras healthy and doing their job. Keeping you on your divine course, your mission, which is your life. One step at a time. It is not usual for them to become oversized unless one is to become a great orator or Mother Teresa with an enormous capacity for love. Usually chakras stay within certain parameters but always fluctuate in colour and movement and sound, as they sing you out to the universe. Think on this……..You are a sound, a unique vibration, a resonance within the Aum. The first and last sound that holds the universe within it. You are an important part of that resonance. Without you there is no perfect Aum.

Dream Like A Bear

This is a time for self reflection, as we come to the end of one year and begin another. A time to reflect on the good that has happened and to also reflect how one might have done some things differently. This difference and new thinking are what we can take into the beginning of a new year. With a determination for the next year to be more riotous and joyful, more perfect in each moment. Do not live in monochrome. The passions of the colours of life in all their intensity are there to be lived if you so desire. Many do not see the Autumn/Winter as an opportunity to shed the old and bring in the new with Spring. But each season is apt for your living.

In Autumn……..the browns, reds and golds. The browns of dry discarded thoughts, ideas of old ways of being; the reds of passions in your life and the gold glints and hints of what is to come. These are all felt in the Autumn as you reflect on a beautiful Summer and feel the glow of its memories warm you as the weather cools. The memories of the past are with you in Autumn. Thoughts of the past year wander further back and memories are there to warm you as Winter approaches. Winter is the bones of life. The bare sheet on which you begin to write for the next year. As the rich glow of Autumn fades, the starkness of Winter arrives and you are able to see to the root of it all. As your clock slows, and your body slows, the nights darken and you feel the pull of hibernation. Like a bear, your body needs to slow and dream the new world into being. Dream Well. Plan Big. Expect More. Allow the Winter to build on the bare bones, to become coated in a new way of thinking, a new way of being. And dream yourself into your new world.

When Spring comes, in all its wondrous hues of fresh green, this is the time for sudden spurts of growth and development. All Winter has been preparing for this. The fertile time of appreciation of life, growth of your emotional and physical bodies and the growth of your soul. You are not dissimilar to a plant. You are subject to the same time continuum; the same earth where you plant your feet; the same daylight hours; the same dreaming of the longer days with the gentle warmth of Spring. You feel the same freshening wind. You know how many hours the sun shines on you. You are aware of a Winter of dreamy hibernation. All bodies respond and awaken with enthusiasm in the Spring. The changes that were laid down in the Autumn/Winter are grown into action in the Spring. New Year’s resolutions are a symbol of how the human race approaches the new year, having dreamt the next year in. They may not always be kept but the intent is there. Spring growth can be a springboard for the activity of the year. Plans become alive and resonate into being. The time of dreaming is past, the time for action comes with the Spring. The time to do, grow and become. And thence to the Summer, when you enjoy the fruition of your plans. When you enjoy your living, with its passionate highs and glorious moments. When the Summer enriches your soul with its fullness of being. Enjoying each moment, full and flowering, pregnant with possibilities.

The future is something you have already dreamed. It is not random. You put meat on its bones during your quiet dreaming. You caused the Spring and Summer by utilising your Autumn and perfecting your Winter. You are like a plant, drawing close to the sun in Summer. Growing towards the light as your soul desires to feel at one with its intent. You are the soul surviving through the lean Autumn and the harsh Winter, dreaming vibrant Springs and full Summers into being. So it is with you as a person. As you suffer through your hardships you dream of the future and hope constantly for better. You look back on the past/Autumn, and vow to do better with a new beginning as the old is stripped away/Winter. In the Spring your dreams become reality and you grow and change and build towards the long enjoyment of your Summer.

Even wetlands have a summer……..so too does the Arctic. There is always a Summer. Always a season of remembrance and sifting the leaves. And always a Winter as you strip away what you don’t need and dream what you do want. Always a beautiful Spring that is grown from the plans and seeds and hopes of your frosted Winter. And always a Summer to enjoy your achievements, your moments, your being, your Now……….if you would give yourself the enjoyment of the season.

So you do not just walk on the earth with feet separated by concrete and rubber, by tarmac. You are never separated from the Earth……its times, its seasons. You are never separated from the rise and fall of the Earth’s hopes and dreams. Your body and mind are governed by the Earth’s cycles. Its physical, chemical, organic, biological makeup. You are not separate ………will never be separate from the Earth. Even through a mile of concrete you would breathe Her air, feel Her rhythm…….so profound is your connection. That is why you need to connect with Mother Earth/nature on a regular basis. Your body knows when it is being limited in its connection and it strives to be part of the Earth’s cycles. To know its place within those cycles. To find its peace in the continuation of those cycles……that “All is well”. Because the body feels and knows the rise and fall of the seasons, and feels the connection to the Earth plane. Through that knowing it maintains equilibrium. Does not go crazy. Does not allow the soul of the body to shrivel or deny the light and the dreaming; deny the cycle of life…….which the body and the plant are both part of.

The fact that you inhabit this body (that needs to be grateful to Mother Earth) is a cause for your gratitude and expiation of the wrongs you have caused Her. She has given you the body you inhabit. It is not yours by right. It is a gift. Acknowledge it as a gift. Culture it, adore it. Love it with all your heart and know that it is indeed a temple for your spirit. A spirit that adores to be in the passionate embrace of each moment, that is always a perfect moment, if you inhabit it with the right perspective.

The seasons show that your body belongs to the earth. And once your borrowing is done it will return to the earth. And your soul will be eternally grateful for the opportunity Mother Earth agreed to give you. To show you how much learning was possible in a short time in this “hothouse” that is the Earth plane. Be grateful. You have been blessed.

Circles

The physical world has an outer sheath of being. A physicality that is also beyond its boundaries. Looking at concentric circles (as an illustration), it has inner layers and outer layers. So it is with the physical world. It has inner layers of being and outer layers. It is not at the bottom of the concentric rings, it is somewhere in the middle. Being precise would not help your understanding, as the knowledge that there are infinite layers is sufficient for you to comprehend the vastness of creation, which your brain in this physical dimension would have difficulty understanding.

There are many of your lifetimes spent in many of the realms of these concentric circles. Multitudinous lifetimes, learning, co-creating, living. All learning how love can make a difference wherever you stand in the universe. Love and peace. The concept of which is different to wherever you stand on the wheel of concentric circles.

To understand peace one must experience dissent, hate, diametrically opposed views that spill into violence.

To experience love, one must learn how to be in the moment……..in a state of grace. As a receiver and giver of love. A node through which love flows to and from mankind. This love is a constant for you to tap into. It exists permanently. And in your purer moments you feel it and filter it into the physical layers of your existence. This is needed for your physical wellbeing and your emotional and spiritual health. It is an essential………a right.

And most of all one must love oneself. Appreciate oneself. Know that you are doing the best you can in an imperfect world. Love is the important element in all of your being and doing in the everyday physical world. An open heart for all people to share in. Together with the drive that love achieves more than hate. That it drives passionately towards elevated goals and links all of humanity in interconnectivity with every and all connections you make in this world. From animals to microbes, energy waves and thought processes. Love is the guiding force that permeates your being. As you become attuned to that love, your life takes on the love that you have for your relationships, where you live, your interactions, your food, your leisure and work.

Love is not one emotion……..it is many. A myriad of feelings encompassed in one word just as the Inuit words for snow are many. To be in love with yourself, your work, your creativity, your relationships and making things happen is your goal. So living in the moment becomes a passion because you love and live so joyously that your one aim is to feel the ultimate state of grace and feel blessed and loved in each moment. That exciting stillness of the soul and mind………aware of the love that permeates the physical plane and beyond. This is the only way to live. Why waste your life on anything but the best way to live?…….. in the moment, passionately, non-judgmentally, open-hearted, creatively. Experiencing this physical world in that mindset and you will literally see it differently. Colour and contrast, focus and intent will all become sharper, cleaner, vibrant, as you tune into the energy system of the universe.

It is only difficult if you say it is difficult. This is a lack of belief, wanting, intent, passion.

So first love yourself. The eye of your concentric circle. Live that love first before allowing it to ripple gently outwards through those circles emanating from you at your core. Let love ripple gently outwards to the people around you, your environment, your creativity, your wants and your needs. This gentle outward flowing of love leads to a knowing vibrance of the world around you. A gentle, loving, understanding but developmental space for you in which you can thrive. As you were born to do.

Everyone has the one joint endeavour……..to learn and feel and know that love is the one uniting energy in the universe. And it is a constant. Waiting to be tapped into. Like an electric switch that needs turning on for the light to permeate everywhere. That is the one joint aim of the human race. But it all begins with the central core issue of truly loving oneself. From the pure full love of loving oneself can one then use it to flow outwards, from the molten core of your being, as a node: to carry love through to your world; another human; animal; microbe; leaf; atom. And the world lights up. And all is suffused with the light and peace, wellbeing and growth that comes from truly loving all that is within you and without.

Tick Tock (Part One)

We calculate the length of a day, the length of a week and do not think about the seconds that pass. In time these seconds become of no meaning as they pass quickly and inconsequentially.

Consider this. Each second is a moment in which you live your life to the full, if you were but aware of it. Each moment, each second, profound in its entire completeness of the knowledge of your life. In that second your whole life is contained. Where you have been and the longings of where you wish to go. It holds your pain and your happiness, your past and your future in that one moment, that one second that is NOW. Everything…… all of you, all the physical world, all thought, all life. Held in that one glorious second of your breathing life.

Life is precious. Precious because of the seconds it contains. Precious as it ticks by in seconds. Precious in its wanting to be lived fully. Then concentrate……….focus on each second, each minute……….Live it. Live extravagantly, daringly, passionately, completely…….in each second. Know you are alive. Acknowledge life by living it. Jump into the experience. This breath-taking, awe-inspiring experience and know that you are fully awake. Fully poised in each second to take as much from each second that passes as is possible.

Yes, you also need to sleep. But the seconds before sleeping will be spent in perfect focus of good sound sleep. You will be living to an extreme communication with your body. Aware of its development and idiosyncrasies, so will be able to nurture it. This requires good sleep; good food; good exercise; good thought stimulation; good passions; good focused living that excites you. If each second excites you then life is fulfilling. If you do not feel it in one second, aim for the next……..and the next. And when all the seconds hang together like a string of pearls, then you will find yourself living at such a point of awareness and intensity, you will be amazed at how the difference from before this, had been so mundane and taken for granted. How the pleasure in your life was not appreciated so much as now…….in each moment.

Your work, your resting hours, all can be lived to their best when you focus on extracting the most living from each moment. Without the awareness of these seconds, life is not sacred, marvellous, wondrous. It is mundane and tiring. A neverending eternity that is upheld by awareness of the clock ticking the seconds by. But still so many of you do not realise the hopefulness that can abound in each tick of the clock to the next. All wanting, desire, need, breath taken between these two artificial boundaries. The length of a second……the length of a lifetime. It is a matter of spatial awareness.

Live……..do not hide

Live…… do not stagnate

Live……..allow experience

Live……..and love with passion.

There are many futures. Each one can be changed or chosen in a second. A life well lived to the maximum, optimum understanding, love and awareness, will find it has been a good satisfying, fulfilling life. One that you would look back on with satisfaction and a pat on the back, “I did well”. This is possible. There is not always a need for the larger picture.

Raise your mind’s eye ever inwards and upwards by concentrating, focusing on living each second as if it were your last breath. Your last moment on Earth. Extract everything from the lifetime of that second. Even waking from sleep be grateful for another day. Excited at having more room to grow. Ecstatic at the joy of living. Bouncing with the energy of a new beginning. When you arise with this joy in your mind and heart, naturally come about, not forced into place. Then you know you are having an awakened lifetime. When you are unaware of the pain of the negatives and only see a joy in their occurring. As you are given a chance to change and grow for the better….in a positive way. To change and become so much more in that one second and maintaining it in each second. Do not worry about the next hour or maintaining it over the next week. Focus on the second………this second.
