Get The Basics Right, The Fun Stuff Will Follow

We have arrived at the end of an energetically transformative week, which if you’ve taken advantage of, you could be feeling grounded in the present moment, poised for whatever’s next but neither relying on its arrival nor doubting that it will come. This place, here, in the now, is a wonderful environment filled with the power of infinite potential but it is not a place to wait… it’s a place to nurture that power by focusing on what’s important and immediate. Get the basics right, the fun stuff will follow.

So what are the basics?

Last Saturday’s oracle whose potency is evident right up until the end of the day, was about communicating your needs, and given the mildly antagonistic nature of last night’s super new moon, this is a perfect time for you to attend to those needs regardless of whether help is available. There is so much you can achieve between now and whenever the universe delivers your gift in whatever form it arrives.

The basics include first and foremost your most precious possessions: your body, mind and spirit. Attend to your personal care needs first, spend some time in nature listening to the birdsong and remembering how to breathe deeply, right down into the bottom of your lungs, exhaling the residue of what no longer serves you. Take time to appreciate the flowers… I’m happily playing in my garden doing just that after my help arrived early in the week in the form of a beautiful friend who worked like a machine helping me tame the neglect and half rebuild Eden… thank you Karen!

The basics include spending time with family: eat together, play together, put down your phones and devices and relearn how to talk to each other… laugh together.

Today is all that matters, leave tomorrow to take care of itself (I’ll be back with the Intuitive Chalice Oracle then).

Ever Present Yet Forever Missed

I thought I’d pop in an impromptu Tuesday offering this week as it’s a very significant day for me. Thirty eight years ago today when I was just a wee skinny seven year old, my daddy passed from this life having uttered my name as his very last conscious declaration.

Each of us has a measured amount of playtime here in the physical, so when the day comes that you leave, it’s good to know you did something special with it… special though, doesn’t need to be world changing, it is just as significant to mean the world to just one or a few people.

It doesn’t end there, tomorrow is the twenty third anniversary of my Nan’s (grandmother’s) passing… one of the strongest most intelligent women I ever had the pleasure of knowing. Both these beautiful souls are ever present yet forever missed in my life.

Life would look very different had they lived longer, not better, not worse just very different. You see, death changes the living, as does new life. We carry with us the teachings, the memories, the love that was shared and we transform it’s best aspects into becoming what we are always meant to become… but if they had stayed here in the physical realm, their influence would have developed and the lessons they left us with would have been superseded by fresh input thus changing the outcome so who you are today, what you know, who you’ve met might be different. The love you know now might not exist in the same form, so bless even their passing as it served you as God intended.

But nobody really left.

There is a tangible feeling today of being lovingly guided, supported and nurtured by the unseen and a reassurance that they who stepped off did so in order that you might become everything you were supposed to become in divine right timing.

On Beltane just gone, I drew together a group of my students in a full day workshop called “The Soul’s Support System” so that they too could feel the benevolence of their ancestral line holding them in eternal embrace through the further development of the Soul Star chakra… and now they never have to feel alone again.

The number 23 has so much meaning for me as a result of this day, more so this year with tomorrow’s 23rd anniversary and whatever it’s numerology or angelic significance, to me it simply means love is eternal, you’re never alone.

Monday Morning Mood Makeover – Laughing In The Face Of Wisdom

Writing this on Sunday afternoon as I felt compelled to do, I couldn’t contain the merriment that seemed to be exploding from my inner being as a result of seeking enlightenment.

You would imagine the intense work involved in learning and teaching the secrets of ascension would be serious business and that the euphoria would stem from housing the Light of God for any given period of time… but no, the sheer bliss actually spontaneously erupted from the very human question: “Who in the world would believe this shit… and more to the point, who could you possibly tell without being locked up for suspected temporary insanity?”

In that split second (that went on for a further several minutes) I rediscovered the secret of true enlightenment: the uncontrollable childlike belly laughter that rose up from depths of my being at the absurdity of the hoops we jump through to become that which we never stopped being… we just forgot that we were and always will be, and in fact can never be anything else other than The Divine in human form.

Now I would love to share with you the secret processes, teachings and time honoured initiations that involve transforming your physical body into a pure clear vessel for more light, but it’s Monday morning… can you honestly tell me you have the time, patience (or faith) to follow those instructions in minute detail, even down to how to breathe? Or, would you be much more invested in a couple of minutes with some good friends dropping all your defences and raucously howling at the externally apparent idiocy of having to explain why your base chakra just exploded…

Make of that what you will but should physical repercussions become evident, I bags the first crack at the bathroom!

Laughing in the face of wisdom may be a bit disrespectful but this Grail Knight just had the best laugh she’s had all year.

Drop the struggle and surrender to the absurdity of reality… you may just realise that Principle 1: I AM God, is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth… honest.

She Served Me Well, Now Let Her Die

Interesting title for a Monday morning don’t you think? This is a concept that last week became so clear to me, almost in stark contrast to the understanding I’ve integrated through years of self-discovery, but it’s an all-over liberating feeling.

Who I have been, where I have been, what I have done and achieved or not achieved, that version on of me no longer exists… she served me well, now let her die.

Nobody panic. I’m not about to shuffle off the mortal coil (at least I hope not). This simple statement is a testament to an even simpler truth: I’ve evolved.

We mostly begin new situations with a resume or curriculum vitae of what entitles you to be here, as if breathing requires justification or certification of competence but in so reciting your life experience you dwell on past manifestations of yourself and you quite frankly can’t be that person again. It’s like attempting to fill a glass from a fast flowing river with the exact same water twice… once it’s passed you by its gone forever.

Letting the old self die is a celebration of growth not a thing to be mourned. You have been gifted with knowledge and wisdom, skills and life hacks as a result of the experiences you have traversed, but if you are looking now to experience a new set of circumstances in your life then you simply cannot keep telling the old story of you.

Today was created from yesterday, if you keep repeating yesterday’s story then tomorrow will look exactly like today. That’s terrific if today is exactly what you hoped your life would look like but after a while stagnation will ruin even your most precious dream…

Just like the fast flowing river we are meant to flow to the ocean, which then evaporates and makes clouds, which fall as rain and start a new cycle all over again. The fresh rain doesn’t keep banging on about what happened when it used to be the vast ocean and the ocean appreciates but never mentions the rain.

Who you are today needs no excuses, no justification, no preamble… let your innate kindness, light and loving heart speak for itself. Let your wit and wisdom keep pace with the pack… a history can be exaggerated but a genuine intent always finds its place.

She served me well, now let her die.

Handling Lady Luna’s Grip On Your Gravity

Remembering back to the oracle over the weekend, (you may not have caught it due to a technical hitch with the website but it’s available to read here). It was about getting lost in uncertainty within a sea of your own questions and the resulting ¬†emotional state is often one of confusion, frustration and ultimately leading to physical exhaustion.

Today’s Full Moon in Scorpio is a pretty significant event in terms of emotional stability, the moon herself affecting water and Scorpio being a watery sign… water being symbolic of and affecting the emotions. If you don’t believe in the potency of astrology then look at the physics: the moon’s pull on Earth’s gravity is what causes tides in the sea so if it has that much influence over a powerful body of water such as an ocean imagine what it can do to a walking meat sack of water like a human being.

All that said, let’s take for granted then that during a full moon your personal tides are high.

Emotion is not your enemy. When you understand that you are not actually the emotion but instead the individual experiencing them, you can take up the position of the observer and use it as one of the greatest gifts Source bestowed upon you knowing that its guidance as to your direction, your position, your timing and your environment. How cool is that? Cosmic GPS!

So knowing full well there are 3 days across a full moon where it’s effects are at there most powerful: the day before, day of and day after; I wasn’t too alarmed when my energy dropped yesterday, as did my enthusiasm and my excitement for the things that have been fascinating me of late. I simply turned my attention to Principle 6: I AM Self-Full (understand it more here), and got on with a few mundane chores that didn’t require much creative energy….

And then the questions began.

Before I knew what was happening I was embroiled in a deluge of mind chatter, not about how I felt, I understood that, but confusing emotional heaviness caused by gravity with my GPS alerting me to the chance I might be going the wrong way, making the wrong choices, taking risks that were ludicrous, believing the wrong people… it goes on. These are the questions the oracle warned of.

The only way to stop the tumble and start handling Lady Luna’s grip on your gravity is to get fully present by embracing Principle 2: I AM Detached, the art of letting go of all outcomes and just being.

You may not be able to control the movement of the heavens but by being aware of how you’re affecting by it you can get back to your empowered centre knowing “this too shall pass.”

Taking Home Wherever You Go

Life is full of uncertainties. We find ourselves moving through different spheres of being whether we are trying to illicit change or not. The journey is always happening even when life feels static.

Because the motion of transformation occurs at such an imperceptible rate during your normal daily grind, unless you look back with purpose at how life was say a year ago, your fearful self doesn’t get spooked because the flow was slow and natural.

What about those times of sudden shift though?

The use of the word home in the title is no more about your street address than it is about your furniture, in fact moving house could be one of the sudden shifts I’m referring to, as could a birth, a death, a new relationship or the end of one to name but a few. No, the home I’m referring to is the sense of stability, confidence and inner well-being that life is ok no matter what chaos is happening externally.

Familiarity, is the key to feeling safe. When you find that part of you which remains constant through all your experiences, the unshakable, unbreakable essence of who you are, who you came here to share as a gift to the world, that’s when you understand that home is a state of mind wrapped up in a quantum field that you are incapable of ever leaving and that change is merely an update in the illusory theatrical scenery and actors in the story.

If the story didn’t evolve, we’d all stop playing. When it evolves at pace we all get jittery simply because we lose our place in the script and are forced to ad lib without warning, making the plot twists that bit more nail biting, edge of your seat, sometimes excruciating.

The truth is that home is within not without and that everything else, everyone else, is just temporary shelter.

Remember who you are. Principle 1: I AM God.

The Joy Of Unleashing Your Inner Genius

I’ve had so much fun this week I can hardly contain myself! I took the role of the innocent fool in order to explore a new adventure that quite honestly scared me shitless… I had no idea what I was doing, I knew I would have to make myself visible and vulnerable and that for me, the idea of appearing to not have the first foggiest clue is a territory I dread, but I embraced my fear in order to evolve and discovered what it means to feel the joy of unleashing your inner genius.

Building my website has been excruciating at times. With no technical experience I’ve worked through trial and error, learning along the way. Building a membership site however… creating online training etc… Oh my. I took myself off last week to get some tech training and this week the final link fell into place when a friend pointed me toward a 10 day video challenge. OMG! Video? If you’re doing it online they wanna see your face… I’m on day 3 and I’m having a bloody ball!

Now your inner genius may have nothing to do with anything as mundane as creating your own videos and this insight isn’t about that, your inner genius though, whatever it is, lies just on the other side of fear, discomfort, uncertainty or in my case sheer terror.

I needed to get across that dark stretch of water because what I want to achieve and how I want serve is located on the opposite riverbank. I saw the opportunity, signed up, spent days wondering how I could back out without losing face, then took a deep breath and had a go. I had no idea that my fear was all about looking stupid in public and actually I’ve realised that looking stupid is actually one of my most endearing qualities… I’m having fun, and fun attracts more fun and more connection and encourages others to jump in and have a go too… and I’m all about encouraging others.

Genius doesn’t mean remaining static, it’s about growth and growth can be uncomfortable but that discomfort is short lived… especially if you rip the plaster off!

What do you want to do, be, learn or have?

Go on, rip the plaster off!

Birthday Special – Weighing Risks Against Feathers

This is by far my favourite day of the year. It’s my mum’s fault, growing up, she would always say to us “no one works on their birthday, nobody gets shouted at on their birthday.” So today in my family it’s not just a day celebrating 45 years of my being on this fast spinning rock we call planet Earth, it’s also my “get a free pass day.”

If you had a free pass what would you do?

If a risk was there to be taken would you take it?

I did an angelic visualisation with some of my students recently where we invited in Archangel Jeremiel and asked that he advise us on the issues and concerns we had within our lives, dilemmas if you like. He conjured up a set of golden scales and weighed each problem against a feather just as a soul might be weighed on entry into heaven.

What if we started weighing risks against feathers?

If the risk was worth taking we would know because it would weigh lighter than a feather, a 50/50 chance of success would balance perfectly and a guaranteed loss would weigh so heavy that the scales might buckle under the pressure.

A free pass of course doesn’t really work out in the world of men. Consequences are always in play and that’s why I hesitate to leap towards what has proven in the past to burn hotter than the 45 candles on my cake but I can say one thing, the buns have subsided, the scars are talismans I can use for protection and the risk I’ll be taking today is to wait with open arms, an open heart and an open mind… if God decides to deliver me the gift of a lifetime, birthday gift to top all but one (the fact that I’m here at all), then I’m ready meet it half way.

Today I’m the feather. Risking my heart again.

First Monday Challenge – Being Pregnant With Possibilities

Not only is it the first Monday of the month, it’s also May and that must mean it’s Beltane. Being pregnant with possibilities seems like an appropriate subject, May Day being a celebration of fertility and all that, but it’s also following on from the theme of the weekend’s oracle… turning worrying about problems to creating solutions.

Positivity takes practice. When you place focused intent, determination and gratitude at the forefront of your mental agenda you become a manifestation machine. The quantum do-da’s of the universe deem it can be no other way… you are that powerful.

So while we’re attempting a challenge lets up the ante and make it three.

1. Focus your mind and become a dream maker

2. Bolster your resolve with determined action

3. Gratefully acknowledge every blessing.

So what is focused intent? Do you ever say to yourself “I want that,” only to hear your thoughts say “That’s impossible, it’s never going to happen”? Well, that’s the opposite of focused intent. Your conscious mind is for the intended outcome but your subconscious mind, the bit running the outdated programme is running interference on the plan… you are creating from your fearful, wounded perspective an internal error or battle of wills.

Uninstalling the faulty app is not so easy when the device in question is your own psyche so you are going to have to learn to override the programme… that means being super vigilant for a time until it becomes automatic. When the negative mantra pipes up “who are you trying to kid?” You are going to have to make a statement to the little voice that’s heckling from the side lines: “I hear you my friend, and for a time I even believed you knew what you were talking about but here’s the thing, the only thing that stands between us and the goal is you, I’m done listening… that thing I want, its not just achievable, it actually wants me to have it, achieve it, conquer it. It’s routing for me so why aren’t you? So for now, if you shout, I’m gonna shout louder. If you say tom-ay-toe I’m going to yell tom-ar-toe and one thing’s for certain… we will not be calling the whole thing off!”

Determined action is about committing to the process and actually following through. It’s no good arguing with the heckler if you just sit there and do nothing, All those possibilities, all those roads that lead to Rome, (Rome being just an analogy for the goal you’ve chosen, obviously), adventures to be had down every one of them, basically means that it doesn’t matter which route you take as long as you don’t give up and turn back at the first sign of trouble, because that would be akin to admitting to your inner heckler “Okay buddy, you were right all along.” Not going to happen, this is a challenge remember?

Then there’s the biggy: gratitude.

Can you say thank you for the shitty stuff as well as the shiny stuff? All has purpose on the path you choose. Lessons come in countless forms and further down the road to your dream you will be able to look back and see the service that even the toughest excursion brought to you… patterns dancing in a perfect formation only truly visible from God’s eye view. If you detach from the drama just long enough to see the kaleidoscope of colour, you will know the true worth of every experience and gratitude will follow. To be grateful ahead of understanding takes real faith… and everyday it will be tested, but at the end of this leg of the journey…

You will transform from being pregnant with possibilities to giving birth to a miracle. Your miracle.

Go on, I challenge you to become a dream maker!

This challenge contains aspects of Principles 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 & 7! The 7 Principles of The Wholly Grail are free to read on the website.

After The Storm

I love the smell of the air immediately after the storm. Everything is more alive, more vibrant, washed clean by the rain and in full colour. It’s a time when, as a child I would take off my shoes and walk along the York stone paving with bare feet just so I could feel the wet, cool, solid foundation reminding me that this moment counts.

This moment counts.

What you do with it is your choice. It could be life changing, life affirming or it could pass by as a simple moment of acknowledgment of all that there is… you don’t have to do anything of course, you can go on with your daily rounds without looking up, without truly, fully breathing in, and without a clue that the moment is passing you by.

Having selected Principle 6: I AM Self-Full as the lead card in Saturday’s Intuitive Chalice Oracle, I’m mindful of the focus energy this week on doing what’s right for you and doing it slowly and with purpose. It’s being compounded by the gentle new moon in Taurus arriving in the early hours of Wednesday morning (about 01:16am UK time). The emphasis for me is about focus: all or nothing, this and only this… It may seem like limiting choices and expression of variety but for now at least, that way lies scattered thinking and dispersed intentions. I am my primary focus. My needs are paramount.

The storm has passed and it’s time to ponder the emergence of fresh perspective and tend to the fundamentals like health, home and happiness.

Whatever storms you have been facing have blown away the cobwebs and the chaos has transformed into a fertile landscape for planting new seeds. Some of those seeds you rescued from what went before, some you have dreamed anew but the only thing that matters now are the dreams you’ve dreamed for you.

Take off your shoes, put your feet on the ground, breathe, smile… and draw the moment inward until it fills you.

Happy Monday… x
