Stuck Between Floors

The old world, the one you once called home, the one where the inhabitants were ushered here and there day by day; heads down, unaware of the injustice visited upon them by the shepherds of the self proclaimed utopia; once you raised your eyes from your feet and the pavement in front of you and stepped out of line, sneaking past the guard who had been equally as brainwashed into believing he was protecting some kind of social order… that world to which you once belonged when you were asleep, is now an alien place to you.

They know you are no longer entranced. To go back there is not an option.

The new world, the one with an army more equipped with technology, fire power, resources and subterfuge, the one you imagined you might infiltrate to see what was really going on, that place is terrifying to you… to be a sheep or a wolf? You can survive for so long being an evolved sheep in wolf’s clothing, there are those who won’t bat an eyelid as you carefully manoeuvre through this dangerous territory… after all you look the part, you talk the talk… but you smell like a lamb to the slaughter and you don’t know the ropes here. What do you do? You can’t stay, it’s not safe… and you certainly can’t go home…

Home?

Change is enormously distressing even when you know it’s necessary. Enlightenment, means change. Like stepping into an elevator at the ground floor and pressing the button to ascend only to find that you become stuck between floors. The time in that space can be a frantic grapple to get to a place of safety but you have no real understanding of what safety is, simply because the floor below you stifles your newly open receptors but the floor above seems just as uninspiring and full of pretenders with hidden secrets…

Where is home?

The elevator is your friend. The gentle background music and the reassuring voice “lift going up.” This isolation is not a trap.

You aren’t stuck, the small box in which you are shielded, raising you far beyond the only floors you believed existed will deposit you in its own sweet time to a place so far beyond the drab, way past the shiny and garish, into a place where sheep and wolves transform through Grace into genuinely beautiful individuals who will open their arms to accept you as the magical doors open… and for the first time you will know that you’ve truly arrived home.

Hold your nerve, don’t get off until you reach your floor… you belong much higher than ever dared believe.

The Balance of Power

Don’t be fooled into thinking that achieving Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted, is possible in the purest form that you may be expecting. The human condition, as with everything else in the universe is built to seek balance and for every action, according to some genius or another, there is an equal and opposite reaction… we are literally built to seek reward for effort.

Having established this idea that some more idealistic light workers may rail against, we also need to accept that everything we do (and I do mean everything) is done with an agenda. Sure that agenda may be so deeply routed that you have hidden it from yourself but it is there I promise… The most giving person gets a kick out of seeing the joy they illicit in others, the most eloquent teacher has a desire to be heard and acknowledged, the doting parent to continue the family bloodline and to experience the power of having something so precious depend so completely upon you…

The transfer of power is the driving force upon which our reality is built. So being open-hearted is not the same as unconditional because as near as we can get to unconditional is allowing and acceptance. The true definition Principle 7 is to give and receive in equal measure… The balance of power.

Recognising that the input doesn’t always come from the direction in which the output was offered and that the universal Laws of Compensation and of Karma don’t always operate on a discernable schedule is all that maintains the illusion of unconditional to our self-congratulatory egos. Now don’t go berating your ego for doing its job, you can only be a whole being when you integrate your higher self with your ego and bring that shadow into the light.

When you embrace Principle 1: I AM God, you begin to understand your own worth and only then can Principle7 take on full meaning within your life… then abundance can flow through you, not as an idea or wishful thinking, but as a living energy where you stand as the lightning rod drawing down the grace of God and a divine dispensary for the very same… where the balance of power occurs within you, not to you, not in spite of you, it cannot bypass you… you become the prismatic transmitter at the centre of the story.

Saturday Oracle – Blind Justice

Grail Oracle 4Grail Oracle Indigo

Principle 4: I AM Truth, has surfaced for the second week running, this week bringing with it the deep indigo of the 3rd eye chakra to ask you a very important question: “Can you believe your eyes?”

Truth, as I’ve mentioned before, is subjective depending on your point of view and not every “what?” has a “why?” Let me explain…

Blind Justice is impartial and the legal system itself is dependent upon only the facts being established, the evidence as it stands. Supposition and conjecture are inadmissible in any court of law because they hold no weight… they are the grey area where one party attempts to establish motive or intention behind any action and although motive can sway a jury it isn’t actually evidence… it’s circumstantial.

Take for instance this particular oracle post. The words stand as facts before you (this is what has been written) but can any of you honestly say what prompted me to write the piece? Do any of you understand the motive behind my words? My intention is hidden from you is it not? You can try all you like to read between the lines to gain greater perspective, some of you may even think you have a handle on it but what you deem to be real may in fact simply be your version of the events that led to this oracle composition… until I physically tell you what my motive is.

This is a week to make your choices based on the facts. What you think you know, what you believe and what might be apparent will not hold weight under scrutiny and cannot sustain your case one way or another. Whatever is happening in your life, whatever dilemma you are attempting to unravel to make some semblance of a plan, let it be based in real, tangible, measurable indicators.

Something as simple as the Christmas Party… “how many shall I book for? I haven’t had an RSVP from several.” Easy… how many have already responded with a yes? That’s how many you book for. “What if someone else decides to go?” Easy… let them call the venue and add a place. What if, is sending you down a road of supposition and not fact and blind justice cannot see it. If you book more, you run the risk of losing your deposit when ‘what if’ fails to show.

It may seem cold, unfeeling and even narrow sighted, but you owe it to yourself to sort out the fact from the fantasy… everyone around you will soon get the hang of how you roll. This is not about being closed minded, or about closing your heart to others it’s simply about creating space in your mind so that your imagination can focus on something more inspiring than just guessing what other people’s motives are.

Left Behind

They say timing is everything, (whoever they are). Synchronicity, a long term buzz word of the spiritual community describes being in the right place at the right time for the right things to happen… The rest of the world might call this pure coincidence but this all depends on your beliefs about a bigger picture and a Divine plan guiding your life.

Personally, I choose to believe in something bigger, but being human as I am (Principle 3), this belief often gets caught up in fearful thinking that there won’t be enough… enough time, enough resources, enough love, enough anything… that I’ll be in the wrong place, I’ll miss the opportunity and somehow I’ll get left behind.

Lack mentality, another self-help, spiritual buzz word,  is the term used to describe this phenomenon of perceiving there will never be enough and its a catalyst for war, violence and hatred as we as a species scramble for the first place in the line… obviously I’m making reference to this Black Friday thing that everyone is talking about.

Just one day after Thanksgiving and we are suddenly as ungrateful as you can get in a “more, more, more” rush to get ahead just in case we miss out on something… something that we never actually wanted in the first place.

Despite my occasional tendencies towards forgetting that the universe has my share put aside for the exact moment when I need it, I’m giving this free-for-all a wide birth. I don’t remember the massive sales being a part of any nativity and the gifts that arrived in the stable didn’t come with a reduced sticker.

If I’m not in the right place at the right time for the right thing to happen then it was never the right place, the right time or the right event… synchronicity cannot be contrived, that defeats the object altogether. If you haven’t got it then you don’t need it, if you need it, the universe will deliver without you needing to fight for it.

Let this apply to all your wants in this moment and you will be truly blessed.

Essential Part of The Script

Life is a process. Unfolding with each step like an adventure story, with twists and turns taking you to who knows where, it develops by the moment from the very second you touch down here on the planet to the moment you leave and in fact beyond.

You may think you have plans, intentions, hopes, dreams and direction, all a part of the show to help drive you forward but in truth there is a much more elaborate show going on and your miniature role becomes apparent only when someone else’s slams up against it creating the main event… a bit like a small planet gently spinning through space minding its own business apart from being courteous by waving good morning to the other planets engaged in their very own orbits as they fly by… that is until some random meteor comes out of nowhere hurtling towards the gentle planet at breakneck speed and suddenly life goes from a serene routine to a scene out of the spoof disaster movie Airplane.

The more elaborate scheme going on is not subject to negotiation or reason and its Creator has no intention of explaining it to you, you’re simply expected to play your part.

You may believe that this narrative has you down as an insignificant pawn in a game you don’t understand but not so. You see, you are the most powerful player on the universal chess board, without you the narrative doesn’t work. Whether you are to win or to lose, to be the hero or the sacrificial lamb doesn’t change the fact that without your input, without you playing your role to the full, the next part of the unfolding story cannot go ahead… and the show must go on.

You affect everything within this Divine Matrix just by being a part of it. quantum physics shows that you affect it just by observing it… that’s how significant you are.

Just for today, observe every aspect of your existence, from reading this to doing your laundry to preparing your dinner as an essential part of the script… you have absolutely no idea which supposedly insignificant act will trigger the next part of the story right up until you exit stage left.

Principle 1: I AM God

Sacred Truth

Ambiguity is not your friend. When it comes to getting what you want, whether it be in terms of material manifestation or simply in the way your life and the people in it show up for you, clarity of intent is key to ensuring an outcome you will be delighted with.

Principle 4:  I AM Truth is not just a spiritual concept but a powerful mantra to live by and one that is paramount in the co-creation of an amazing journey. Though it is, as are all The Grail Principles, applicable to everyone and therefore the truth becomes subjective, I want here to focus on my truth because that’s the only truth that can possibly have meaning for me (as yours would be for you). Having an open mind however, I’m prepared to allow my truth to evolve and flow as new knowledge enters the arena of my perception… that being said though, my values, the basic presets for my experience, take far more convincing to shift than the emotive ideas that may swell and fade with the arrival of new information.

When your values are ambiguous you become as an untethered balloon being battered around with the gentlest of breezes, allowing yourself to be dictated to, ordered around by the nearest loud voice and somewhere in the chaos your truth morphs into someone else’s and your life becomes unrecognisable… you essentially become a prisoner of someone else’s rules and standards.

Defining your values isn’t necessarily an easy task until you find them being challenged, for example: can you list your values now? No? Some may say that even values are simple programming and can be undone, but for me, values are a set of core beliefs that define who you are and when someone wants to take them away from you, your soul cries out to warn you that something is so very wrong and the culprit does not match your criteria for a happy life.

Finding out you have opposing views with someone you’re invested in is one thing, but finding out you have opposing values is a clear sign that you’re incompatible… that’s the point when you must ask yourself the most poignant question ever: are you prepared to compromise yourself out of fear of losing something that in reality will be the very thing that causes you to lose yourself?

Ambiguity is not your friend. If you want your needs to be met, get clear about your values. Your deepest and most sacred truth is and always should be Principle 1:  I AM God… Don’t compromise on your God self… He would never compromise on you.

Saturday Oracle – His Greater Plan

Grail Oracle 4Grail Oracle Violet

There’s a war going on… an internal conflict of massive proportions between intuition and reason, between faith and logic.

Principle 4: I AM Truth doesn’t just apply to your version of events versus that of somebody else, in this combination where it comes face to face with the mesmerizing violet hues of the crown chakra it propels us into battle between higher will and ego.

This week you may find that your intuitive hunches are vivid but so counter to rational thought, historical evidence and pragmatic reason that you trigger a crisis of faith.

You may be trying to create something, manifest some circumstance into being, and although your soul is crying out that all things are possible, your fearful small-self is playing devil’s advocate and beating you down.

You may hear yourself saying stuff like “Yeah right, like that’s ever going to happen…” and closing the door on your hopes and dreams just because you cannot see a way to achieve them, settling instead for same old, same old… but your higher self is the one with the connection to the divine and it refuses to be bound by logic…

God is in charge. You constantly playing saboteur to His greater plan will only make the journey there tougher, so no matter how implausible your visions and psychic hunches are this week use this prayer to help lubricate the universal delivery system:

In this universe there is more than meets the eye. Where my mind perceives only a minute section of its miraculous capacity, my soul is in constant communion with the whole. My visions arrive via my soul from God, and in the Source of all things I place my trust. My awareness grows with my faith, my faith grows with my awareness. Today I open my eyes to see, my arms to receive, my mind to a deeper knowing and my heart to love in all its forms. Today I accept that all things are possible and the possibilities I’ve seen are mine in the eyes of God. Let this be my prayer, let this be my truth, my higher truth, my trust.

Amen.

The truth is… This week can bring you a miracle if you believe it to be so.

A Whole Flame

Very soon after writing my last post “Most Unconventional Romantic Entanglement” I was asked the question: “Are you a whole flame?” Upon considering the question I was instantly propelled towards the most poignant hidden Grail Mechanic… you cannot keep the Grail.

Here’s the best answer I can muster at this time…

Some days I burn bright and some days my fire is low, some days I have the spark but not fuel and other days I have the fuel but no spark… I am a constant work in progress motivated by my desire to heal and be healed, to learn and to teach… and for us all, love is the medium through which we grow, lifetime after lifetime, in embracing it and rejecting it, reaching out for it and hiding from it… it is the eternal dance that drives every aspect of our lives… the power we crave merely a substitute for the divine power of love and the pain we cause, a childlike retaliation when feel the absence of it… an absence caused purely by our own disconnection from the Source of all things. We search for partners, teachers and lovers to help us discover the healing still required, to be the fuel when the flame burns low and to be the spark when the light goes out.

Yes, I AM a whole flame… but some days I forget this amazing revelation for one reason and one reason only…

Principle 3: I AM Human

Most Unconventional Romantic Entanglement

I have been inundated with requests this week, formally, informally, professionally, personally and socially for advice/counselling on relationship issues and The Wholly Grail’s take on the great game we call romance. You’re going to have to forgive me at this point because I’m laughing my head off at the basic irony involved in asking me: a divorcee, currently in the most unconventional romantic entanglement I’ve ever come across with dynamics that nobody would believe if they hadn’t walked this path with me for the last few years… but here’s the thing: the heart wants what the heart wants so let’s start with that premise and build from there…

Coaching using the Grail is an art form when it comes to matters of the heart because every single Principle is involved in some capacity or other, as are the underlying mechanics of The Grail… simply because no two relationships are alike and each has more than one person involved and more than one perspective.

A relationship maybe just starting out, in it’s early stages of ‘getting to know you,’ or it may have been a lifelong partnership. It may be undergoing massive change due to external pressures or the growth of one partner over another or it may be breaking down… there’s also the ‘looking for love’ aspect of romance and all the highs and insecurities that follow along that path, and a myriad of different setups in between. For these reasons I’m not going to go full-on into giving romantic advice here but I will say this much, which is true for all relationships: The Wholly Grail is not a person or what you believe another can do for you, it is a state of consciousness that transcends the need for anything to be other than it is – the attainment of inner peace through acceptance, appreciation and even service.

We were, as a species, created as both yin and yang (feminine and masculine, regardless of physical gender), two halves of a whole… it is therefore in our nature to seek balance by seeking out a twin flame. This however doesn’t diminish the fact that within you is contained the same masculine and feminine nature to varying degrees, and that by balancing, unifying and harmonizing those internal partners you become a whole flame attracting rather than seeking another whole flame, thus creating an eternal fire.

You are The Wholly Grail… once you stop fighting it… and other Wholly Grail’s can’t help but find you and meet you on that level.

Wishing you love.

Saturday Oracle – Sleeping Dragon

Grail Oracle 2Grail Oracle Red

There is an almost undetectable underlying rumble about the next few days and this week’s combination hints once again at The Tower falling… though this time it’s a long overdue and welcomed breakthrough rather than the fearful gripping sensation that we would associate with the symbolism.

When Principle 2: I AM Detached sets its attention on the stability of the intense red base chakra, with it comes the undeniable apprehension of preserving what is current… but anyone can tell you that all structures eventually disintegrate and return to dust ready to rise up again in a new form.

The sense of excitement around this impending change is going to feel markedly different from the sensationalist socio-political arena we have been subjected to of late and more so because this oncoming change is personal and close to home.

Imagine if you will, a sleeping dragon beginning to stir below ground after millennia of myths and legends being passed down from generation to generation, downgraded to all but a fairytale told to children as bedtime stories… those children’s children’s children now grown and feeling the awakening consciousness of a brand new beginning and the palpable anticipation of the dragon’s emergence from below ground into the light as it were… millennia having passed, the ground has now been over developed and the tower (or towers) have been erected as mighty symbols of power and status, but the ancient promise knows nothing of this new way of being… soon to become an old way of being as magic returns to the land.

Yes, it’s very mythical in context but let’s put it in everyday perspective: something you’ve only ever dreamed about and believed until now to be impossible, well improbable at least, is now showing signs of manifesting in your life, but in order for it to fully awaken there must be some form of destruction of the familiar.

Stay present, don’t panic, and be open to reconstructing in a new way allowing what’s not necessary to fall away, thus creating space for a magical life. It’s all about flexibility and priorities.

It’s worth noting too, that when the base chakra is highlighted, your attention may still be being drawn to your physical health. Being detached in this case is still very much about remaining present with what is and not racing to conclusions about what might happen in the future… you create health here in the present with every choice you make… worry isn’t a life affirming selection.

Don’t fear the dragon and definitely don’t stand in the way when the ground starts shaking.

Ooh, and look out for that Super-Moon in Taurus this week too.
