Listen to Your Own Heartbeat. Love and Blessings come to those who themselves hold Love and Blessings Within.

150928 Super full moon singaporeLove and blessings come to those who themselves hold love and blessings within. It’s a simple law of the Universe – that it all starts within.It’s not what you do, it’s who you be. Here’s the energy of Love and compassion at last night’s supermoon meditation.

 

Joyita writes:

Steeped in gratitude I see

Glowing faces of thee

 

Fun & Laughter, sharing & caring

A way for us to go on pairing

 

Beams of light that touched our heads

Blessed our we to be connected by threads

 

Threads of oneness, threads of love

Threads that connect us together as a puff

 

A gift it is to be in your light

May we shine your torch & always be bright

 

Through your mercy & grace we will learn

To be like you and to discern

 

The truth, the light , the love there is

For you are in us, in all that is

Meditation Practice. Supermoon, You, Love and Relationships.

Lunar eclipses bring things up from the hidden, invisible parts of you so that you can consider them and make a choice either to let them go or to bring them to fruition. This lightens your inner being and with more space within, you will take more determined steps. Relationships too are the most important part of your life as they reflect yourself – who you are is what you see around you. Life just flows, sometimes challenging more than others, these are what makes you grow. How you direct your energy is then experienced within the environment around you and understanding and taking responsibility for this will bring great reward.

We’re now in the energy of a spectacular full moon lunar eclipse bringing you to possibility of riding its energy to go into the past in terms of your relationships and use this space to move forward into new life. Take forward with you what works and give you joy, discard the rest as life unfolds for you in a more gentle, more graceful and gracious way. What insights did you receive here? How do they resonate? And how will you take them forward. Please email me if you have any questions or doubts!

Practice can be done at any time, just tune into the energy and vroom-vroom…. away you go.

Life Strategy. Watching the Interconnection of Karma Being Expressed Today.

Stay freeIt’s been another interesting period in the history of our planet, hasn’t it? The migration into Europe has certainly brought attention to the human cost of modern conflict in many different parts of our beautiful world; people can watch it and of course still turn away from it, but with modern communication, you can’t not know about it. And “knowing” especially at a time when stakes are so high brings you to a choice point in terms of responsibility and call to action.

We are all participants in this experience because at community level we all share the same karma. This is the overriding karma into which falls the inner view of your cultural, family and individual aspect and forms the basis of progression for future generations. Some years ago I wrote that at current trajectory as it was then we were heading towards a more global conflict and that this would  an unseen war. The power of the enemy would be in its invisibility and to deal with it would be much like trying to swat a mosquito in the dark.

In this light and with energy as the foundation of all of Life itself being irrevocably interlinked, millions of lives have already changed and millions more are in process of changing – yours, mine and everyone else’s. Anyone who thinks that life will just go on as it has always done, particularly because they live far away from ‘the action’, is deluded.

So here we are now looking at a global scenario which whilst not exactly Doomsday significantly calls for action on each one’s part. It doesn’t have to be much, no one’s expected to be a hero, but like water dropping on a stone, whatever you choose to do or say will collectively eventually make a mark in terms of unconditional community consciousness. And it can be anything you wish, as long as it’s something, however small.

It needs to be done, or started now because then it will be focused and managed by you, the people and community consciousness will shift into this space. Otherwise it will be done at you, and in ways you can be sure isn’t going to work for you and it will be done by those whose interesting assumption is that peace can be attained through violence and other forms of force.

It has not yet been widely recognized that we are facing those who are masters of the darkness, whose main weapon is fear and who manipulate public opinion through the Trojan horse of hate by those who for whatever reason have never felt included in any aspect of any society and who have no identity of their own. To know this for yourself, just listen carefully in between the lines of rhetoric on both sides.

I’ve been saying for a while that it’s time to move. Now, it really is.

My summer was very different to how I had planned, both my uncles passed away within a few days of each other and my first response was to return to the UK to focus on my mother and extended family there. Both uncles had left a war-impoverished Hong Kong in the 1950s as part of a diaspora of young Chinese men seeking new life and opportunity overseas and much later, other family emigrated to Canada for the same reason. Big change and challenges for everyone, some settled, others chose eventually to return home.

My father, a Welshman, left his home in 1943 and having lied about his age (16 years) joined the Royal Air Force. He arrived in Hong Kong the day after the war ended and his first duty was to ferry war criminals from Tokyo back to Hong Kong for war crimes trial. He then decided to stay on and married my mother at a time when not many young Chinese women of good family married foreigners. Eventually, they retired back to the UK, electing to live near my uncles so it would be easier for my mother to integrate in terms of community, structure and support.

Through their respective journeys they instilled in my brother, cousins and myself a strong work ethic, resilience and resourcefulness that in turn we have taught our own children. Failure was never an option and self-pity not much tolerated by our elders. They were just like these ones now seeking new life in another country due to war and economic situation, some of whom will make it through persistence and hard work, others, well, won’t. They will, or will not integrate, harmoniously or however, into the societies in which they are seeking new life, and much of this will depend too on each one’s own vision of life and their karmic contract.

Mine is the story of millions of families around the world and may even be the same as your own family history.

In calling for change, I am not looking at these ones who seek to make it. They seek the light and will be challenged by the darkness in so doing. I am looking at those who seek to destroy life, love and community as we all cherish it. It’s time they faced Spirit-in-motion by us using different methodology and tools to those that have never anyway worked in the entire history of our planet.

Think about it.

Heart to Hearts with Anna. Autobiography in Five Chapters by Portia Nelson

Life goes on (with or without you). Choose Life.

Life goes on (with or without you). Choose Life.

Chapter One

I walk down the street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk

I fall in.

I am lost… I am hopeless.

It isn’t my fault.

It takes forever to find a way out.

 

Chapter Two

I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I pretend I don’t see it.

I fall in again.

I can’t believe I’m in the same place.

But it isn’t my fault.

It still takes a long time to get out.

 

Chapter Three

I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk

I see it is there.

I still fall in… It’s a habit.

My eyes are open

I know where I am

It is my fault.

I get out immediately

 

Chapter Four

I walk down the same street.

There is a deep hole in the sidewalk

I walk around it.

 

Chapter Five

I walk down another street.

 

 

Meditation Practice. Set of three gentle energies to anchor yourself deep within your heart.

Beginner Level.

You’ll start with a gentle connection with your own inner cosmos, a return to your Self as the Observer of All That Is.oNext, you’ll move towards sending healing to any loved on in any kind of pain or distress. Finally your inner nature connects with the Nature that is reflected around you.

Each practice is followed by a period of Stillness during which you may choose to continue to be The Observer, or to listen for messages from Spirit.

Depending on how you’re doing for time, you may choose to do each one (about 12-15 minutes) or the full set.

Simple, easy-to-do and focused both to yourself and to those near and dear to you.

Many people have told me that they have experienced profound peace from this simple practice – please let me know what it does for you too!

Listen to Your Own Heartbeat. Ever Changing Day. By Mina Ficarra.

MinSome days living smacks you in the face to wake you from a numbing stupor

Some days it gently beckons you to gaze at the wealth that lies within

Some days your heartbeat fills your chest with the mighty pounding of panic

Some days it anchors you to your breath showing you the delicate balance that is

Some days your mind hijacks your skin leaving you exposed and full of fear

Some days it shows you in clear & precise detail how to bring your dreams to life.

On any given day the sun and moon play tag, greeting each other briefly as one rises and the other retires.

Reminding you that there are constant fresh beginnings and endless opportunities to soar.

Life Strategy. Symbolic Meaning of This Blue Moon. July 2015

Aussie MoonWhilst each moon is symbolic in its own right, this one, coming hot on the heels of huge energetic change, is about your ability to communicate what you see and know to be true. So many of you can see so clearly, yet for whatever reason you self-censor! You ability to share you inner vision is important because what you are shown by Spirit (YOUR Spirit) defines who you are to your external world. And so many of you are naturally gracious and kind that if anyone takes it in any way other than how you intended, well …. gee…. that’s about them, isn’t it and not about you.

But hey ho, where other people are isn’t your concern, it’s where YOU are in life, more important, WHO you are and how you are able to express this that is more important than anything.

So take a few minutes out of your day certainly for the next several – the three days on each side of a full moon holds the same energy – and ride the inspiration of your own love into the next part of your life journey.

And I’m right here by your side, walking with you.

How wonderful is that!

Practice here.

The beauty of energy work is that you can do it whenever you wish. Just tune in….

Meditation Practice. Love and the Amethyst Moon. A Gentle Acknowledgement of Love and Self.

From time to time it’s amazing to work with moon glow and amethyst as the stone of transformation to look within and send love to all your achievements so far. Why not? You did it, and often against huge challenges too. Send love too to those who have walked with you during this part of your journey, sit in this light in order to grow this energy and call forth others, similar.

And then draw a line around those situations that have troubled or challenged you in the past – no need to take them into the future. Whatever was the relevance for that period, it’s now over.

Gentle, kind and loving – just like you.

You can do this practice anytime, not just during full moon energy. Just tune in to the energy whenever you need and take  yourself forward in the way that you wish. And you know what? Each time you practice, you will experience something totally different. Let me know how you get on!
