This Reverberating Web

I’ve been processing on a much more conscious level of late, the idea of home and what constitutes environmental comfort. Probably since my home was turned upside down a few months ago whilst the builders demolished and rebuilt my bathroom causing chaos in what seemed like every other room… that’s the point: you cannot contain a major change in one area of your life without everything else being affected, at least on a minor level. Minor adjustments to the continuum send shockwaves down every strand of the web however minute and seemingly unnoticeable at first.

Shockwaves, like sound waves can be carried on the wind and travel long distances, becoming diluted the further they travel, moving from deafening to an almost indiscernable haunting melody that is so faint that you’re not sure if it’s your subconscious playing tricks on you, before it fades completely having run its course.

When you consider your life, the structures that you’ve built for yourself like family, relationships, career, social standing, financial nest egg, your house or abode etc, these things that currently define your level of comfort and what makes you feel at home, what would happen if just one of those things were to dramatically change?

They will change.

Life is far from static and what you see as being your comfort zone will inevitably be tested… if you don’t step outside of it now and again the divine will shift the goalposts anyway to force you to look beyond your own back yard and understand that yesterday’s optimal is far from today’s potential… change is growth and the only way to survive change is to redefine home…

Looking within at your core beliefs and your connection to a higher power, knowing that who you are: a beautiful soul on an adventure, is the pure essence lying beneath the veneer, and holding onto the notion that this reverberating web is the greatest fun you can ever possibly experience (if you choose to see it that way) is quite enough to wake you up to the truth that home is so much bigger than the structures you have built up around yourself and that regardless of outer appearances, only a minor adjustment and a little time and distance from the main event horizon and the cacophony will once again become a haunting melody that you are perfectly at home dancing to.

Undesirable Ingredients

It takes a whole host of specially selected ingredients to refine your life into the story of peace and joy you are looking for. Ingredients like compassion, tolerance, patience, generosity and gratitude… but what strikes me even more deeply today is what you must leave out.

There are a so many contributing factors that can steal the contents of your personal Grail leaving you in a state of emotional turmoil or at the very least unrest, and all of these undesirable ingredients are based around how you view yourself in relation to everything else going on around you.

Confidence is a word that invokes an image of cockiness or arrogance but it’s true meaning is much more to do with recognising your worth… when you take self-doubt, guilt, comparison, jealousy, (and maybe even the seven deadly sins) out of the equation, and replace them with one simple alternative: faith, everything starts to transform back into its natural beautiful flow.

I’m not talking about faith in something outside of yourself, I’m referring to faith in yourself, faith in your ability to survive any and all shifts and bumps that life will throw your way… and I say “will” because it’s inevitable with so many moving parts, sooner or later one of those parts will roll your way and either become an asset or a trip hazard and when it does you can view it with absolute faith that the challenge is for your highest good or you can break under the pressure of self-doubt.

I’m opting for confidence this week… I’m pulling out my mixing bowl, selecting my optimal ingredients and blow me if I don’t create cake!

Principle 1 is going remind you who you are and what you’re worth…

Principle 2 is going to release you from your fear of any outcomes…

Principle 7 is going to ensure the bi-directional flow of love which is all you need for a perpetually overflowing Grail cup.

Saturday Oracle – Your Vibrational Match

Grail Oracle 4Grail Oracle Orange

There seems to be a fair bit of relationship advice springing forth from the oracle of late and this week’s combination is definitely pointing to opening a dialog about intimacy.

At the beginning of new relationships there is usually some form of guarded behaviour as to our true feelings and we hold back on what we feel to be emotional intimacy for fear of being hurt, ridiculed or rejected. It’s an unfortunate truth that many new couples start out by pretending to be something other than they are particularly with each other. For some reason we believe ourselves to be so much less than we are and somehow our shadow side’s take over the rational mind and distort our perception of ourselves physically, mentally and emotionally.

When Principle 4: I AM Truth jumps out of the pack it challenges you to be you in all your “f**ked up glory” because you are absolutely unique down to the cellular level… why then would you try to be anything else? When you consider the fact that everybody is just as messed up as you are, and that they have a similarly distorted view of what they view as their shortcomings… turns out we are all intimidated by making a good impression… but here’s the good bit: New relationships mean that everyone involved is far too loved-up to care if you have flaws so it’s actually the perfect time to embrace you uniqueness.

The bright orange of the sacral chakra is a magnetic energy and is calling in your mate… Emotional intimacy isn’t just about getting naked and sharing yourself physically, it’s about taking down the walls that stand between your true nature and the one who, in this moment, is your vibrational match. If you are pretending to be someone else then your vibrational match is matching the lie that you are portraying…

Get real… love is real… and you deserve that.

If you are in an existing relationship and somewhere along the line it lost its sparkle, now is a great opportunity for self-examination as to where you aren’t being honest about who you are, the person you have become, what your needs are etc, again open up a dialog with a partner… this is so for all your intimates at this time: romantic partners, your family members, your closest friends and so on… remember its about letting down walls and revealing the imperfect yet perfect you that hides beyond.

Where The Magic Happens

The path is created step by step, moment by moment each time you make a choice… and trust me you make a million choices, consciously or unconsciously across the space of any 24 hours, from what to wear to what to drink, to how to comb your hair or whether today is a good day to change you life entirely. Even adjusting your position microscopically to feel more comfortable is a choice but we often just do it as it comes naturally… something coming naturally is easily trained out when you activate a mindful approach to decision making…

Let’s take the consistent complainer for instance. Quite often they have no concept that their attitude is a negative one or indeed that they are sharing it, just as you may not have noticed that you just altered your posture because your neck was aching from looking down at the device you’re currently reading this from. Chances are they have fallen into the habitual state of acting without thinking first, of allowing conditioning and programming to take over and automatically fill in the blanks when it comes to making choices…

But right here, in this moment, that’s where the magic happens, right here you have a choice…

Before you act, think about the ramifications of your next move… this is not meant to cripple you into inaction, it’s purpose is to put you fully in control of your own life, knowing that the outcome, whether positive or negative is one that you have crafted. When you choose from an unconscious pattern of choice making you get to the end product and ask “why does this always happen to me?” Just because you weren’t paying attention to the decisions you were making doesn’t mean you weren’t making them, so think…

The first job is to recognise that you actually have a choice in front of you… if you are the serial complainer maybe you can start by counting how many complaints you utter during one solitary conversation (it’s just to raise your awareness that its happening). Next ask yourself a single question: “How can I see this situation differently?” What about venturing further by asking: “What would change in my life if I saw it differently?”

Sounds like it might take some time to get retrained but when you realise how much time you wasted walking the path completely asleep and unaware of the creative power you hold, seems like a short term trade off to me.

So, here where the magic happens, what’s it going to be? Choose wisely.

Principles 1 and 2: I AM God and I AM Detached.

One of The Most Boring Posts

This post could seriously mess up my blog strategy… but seeing as though I write what I feel and there is no strategy, that shouldn’t actually be a problem. This is possibly one of the most boring posts I’m ever going to write…

Being a passionate soul, my most inspired articles come from a place of anguish and of suffering. I’m not afraid of that truth: personal experience combined with professional application means I know what I’m talking about, so to feel through each Principle of The Wholly Grail can be what we term research and vigorous testing, realtime, on the ground human guinea pig style… seeing as though The Wholly Grail was rolled out in 2012 as my philosophy for creating inner peace and happiness a fair few human guinea pigs have been subjected to its methods since then.

I’ve found that The Wholly Grail offers solutions to every problem if you’re willing to do the work and because life is constantly offering up tests there has been much to work on and with… it’s not anecdotal evidence it’s real lives, mine included, that have undergone transformative processes through embracing the seven main Principles. But what I wanted to share with you today is my confession of what constitutes a boring post…

Inner peace means acceptance, acceptance means no drama, no drama means no anguish or suffering and this girl is so very happy to be boring if all that is the case.

My own personal and most sticky Principle has always been 2: I AM Detached. Dealing with being present and being grateful for where I am here in the moment, for the current situation, for the people in my life, for the things I have and for the love I’ve been blessed with. Do I have it all? That depends on your perspective… I have everything I need, though there are things I still want. In giving up the wanting and knowing that if it’s meant to be here it will arrive when it’s good and ready and all I have to do is stay open and believe… not that it will arrive, but that I will be just fine if it doesn’t. My drama has always been in believing that something was missing but nothing ever was save for one thing… me.

I’m not lost anymore. I AM God (Principle 1 – everything and everyone is), and nothing is ever lost to me except when I insist on covering my eyes, shielding my heart and I refuse to see…

My Wholly Grail is overflowing with an abundance of grace… so excuse me if I’m boring you but… I’m happy!

If you’d like to find your happy too, LIKE, FOLLOW, SHARE and come back later to find out what’s new.

First Monday Challenge – To What Degree?

The Wholly Grail Principle I discuss least of all is Principle 5: I AM Liberated. This part of the Grail is associated with unburdening yourself from the excess material baggage that ends up imprisoning you into unhealthy routines such as working long hours or retaining stressful employment positions or other unfulfilling roles to maintain a lifestyle that, as a result you either don’t have time for or are otherwise too tired to enjoy… but this month as a bit of a challenge for this the first Monday of October, I’d like you to investigate the idea of time as a basis for liberating yourself.

Imagine for a moment that you were completely free… liberated… no plans… no commitments, what would you do, be, have, create or become?

It’s an overwhelming exercise for those of you who are used to being busy but I’m not asking you to be lazy, I’m not asking you to sit idle, I’m asking you to imagine and dream what life could be if you were free of the things you have to do to have the things you own.

Now don’t get confused here thinking I’m promoting vagrancy, or suggesting giving it all away like philanthropy on a never-before known scale, there are obviously things that we all need: basic shelter, food, clothing, relative safety, and companionship for example but to what degree?

Your challenge is to tally up the cost in time spent, opportunities lost, liaisons missed, smiles withheld, joyful moments unexperienced, memories never created… simply because you were busy maintaining the glitter.

I hope you find a moment in your schedule to reflect.

Saturday Oracle – Divergent Path

Grail Oracle 6Grail Oracle Orange

This week’s oracle comes with a warning.

I pulled a combination for myself yesterday as I occasionally do for guidance but then imagine my surprise when the exact same cards came out for the group reading today.

Stress is a killer. At the very least it can make you very ill, very unhappy and steal your zest for life… I’ve worked with many people over the years and one thing that has become apparent to me is that nobody burns out doing what they love.

Whenever Principle 6: I AM Self-Full turns up in a reading it is asking you to consider your own needs: physical, emotional and spiritual, and it is asking you to be mindful of your true life path. Combine it with the vibrant orange of the sacral chakra and the warning that ignoring  your innermost requirements is draining your vitality, putting unnecessary stress on your adrenals and pushing you towards your own case of fatigue, whether that be full on physical shutdown, or a serious bout of depression.

You were sent here with a mission. You might think you don’t know what that is yet and that’s ok as long as you remember that your mission is in alignment with your skills, your joys and your passions… God didn’t send you ill equipped to fulfil your destiny, he stocked you full of urges and abilities as guidance… sure you have to learn new stuff to get there but being passionate about learning is one of those urges too. The point is that many of us drift through life doing what we’re made to do, what we feel obliged to do and often through these obligations we forget that we were given a voice and a choice…

Your soul has a plan for you and this week your mind, body and spirit are railing against the fact that you have been consistently taking a divergent path.

If you are exhausted, feeling low, run down, experiencing minor illness or suffering any form of stress then this is the week to assess where you are out of alignment with your divine plan and make radical adjustments to your life. Eat well, sleep well, remove yourself from toxic environments, people and situations, tie up loose ends that are draining your energy and resources, de-clutter your home and work space and begin an inventory of what bits of your life bring you joy and peace and which bits bring stress and discord…

Most of all, go back to your innermost hopes, wishes and dreams and ask if you are neglecting them or casting them aside for some reason.

Call upon the angels and meditate… your health is your ticket to joy, your emotions are your map, your spirit carries the keys but only your soul knows that X marks the spot… start listening.
