The Art of Mardy

I know I appear to have been missing in action for a few days but actually I was right here where you left me, taking full advantage of a few internet connection burps and farts by indulging in a little me time as far as refuelling the creative urge is concerned and also proving that sisters are doing it for themselves by slapping a bit of paint around the residence. I have to admit the place is becoming very girly, little by little, and it feels much more me now.

I wanted to finish the week (or start in this case) by giving a heads up to the art of mardy… (thanks for the inspiration Dawn/Holly/Mum/etc).

Mardy, for those of you considered to be foreign, (which is basically anybody not born and bred in Sheffield, South Yorkshire), is a word used to describe someone who is feeling low in energy or mood and displaying irritability or a short temper as a result, basically a downright grumpy git!

As a Grail Knight I am sensitive to general energies and global shifts and it has become apparent that loads of people have over the last week or so, discovered the art of mardy. It’s an epidemic, the likes of which I have not known (well not for a good few months anyway).

The prolem isn’t that everyone, particularly the girls, are feeling irritable, it’s that they are all going “Whoaa! Where did that come from?” because it’s out of context in the upswing of recent weeks…. like some big orange fellow just ran up tangoed you with the mardy stick! Let me put you out of your misery: it’s the moon. Today in the Western hemisphere is a black moon, meaning the second new moon in a month. Now the black moon is only a date really but the intense energy is this moon rising in Scorpio on the back end of that blessed portal, closing just a few days ago… Scorpio has some pretty passionate energy about it so you will feel things deeply as the clearing out and making room you’ve just done has left you in the void, that beautiful nothingness where seeds must be planted… did you have a plan and seeds at the ready?

An astrologer, which I’m not, could give you the finer details and that’s not what you’re here for so I’m going to give you the lowdown on actually being constructive when your feeling mardy:

This is a time of positive transformation so don’t fight how you feel however contrary it may seem. Now is the time to rest, to plan, to plant seeds for your future and to nurture your sensitive nature. Avoid stressful situations or people and ask the angels to step in and cleanse and protect your aura. Get friendly with the bubble bath and indulge your feminine side (even if you’re a bloke)… in Grail terms this is a time for activating Principle 6: I AM Self-Full, but most of all remember “This too shall pass.”

Happy Black Moon… you’ve earned the right to display the art of mardy… at least until the weekend is over.

I’ll be back tomorrow with an oracle reading for you all… x

 

 

The Silencer

Grail Oracle 3Grail Oracle Green

This week sees the meeting of the heart and the mind as you begin to recognise the power of your own feelings. They need to be heard and to be acknowledged, not by others but by you.

A combination of Principle 3: I AM Human with the emerald green of the heart chakra is highlighting your habit of suppressing your deepest emotions and the need to forgive yourself for not listening to what is buried so deep within your being.

The Silencer is a survival instinct that has been overruling your needs without you even noticing and has done so for so long that you don’t even know he or she exists. Don’t look out outside yourself for this person or entity (though when this combination arrives its possible that someone else is doing it to you also), instead look to where you deny your emotions simply by dismissing them as nonsense.

Have you ever been told “Don’t be silly” for allowing your feelings to show? How many times do you say that to yourself?

The Silencer started out life as your ally, protecting you from ridicule or unwanted attention but over many years has become your internal abuser and is now being called out…

This week, first you must listen without judgement to your thoughts and feelings, secondly you must listen to your immediate knee-jerk internal reactions knowing that the voice you hear is The Silencer… your final job is to forgive yourself for all the times you’ve been disrespectful of your own heart and now begin to truly hear, fully feel and start living, loving and laughing again.

More next week… x

Another Layer of The Onion

Ho long do you afford yourself to assimilate new information? In such a fast paced environment as the 21st century is, we as a culture seem to demand immediate action, whether the time it takes to prepare or purchase food, the speed at which our vehicle’s travel, email response time… how long is long enough?

I’ve just taken a few days off from posting, not because I didn’t want to communicate with you but because how I was feeling, I was incapable of communicating… over the weekend I was asked by spirit to do some energy clearing work as part of my divine service to the planet. It was powerful to say the least but what was even more powerful was the past life experience that surfaced for me as a result. I was forced to peel another layer of the onion so to speak. If you have ever experienced a past life regression you will know that it can stir up some quite turbulent emotions as some of your behaviours in this current life are given an origin and repeating patterns are identified. Now, I don’t suggest that you do it by yourself if you are interested in the process (there are plenty of practitioners out there), but what I do want you to do is slow right down when you’re dealing with what surfaces during your spiritual practice.

For me, issues of equality, worth and freedom of expression were all underlying themes in my past life and I’m so pleased that the experience of that lifetime has led me to create The Wholly Grail in this one. My favourite Principle: I AM Truth (and the first one I explored for myself, consciously) was most in evidence… but the truth takes time if you haven’t yet explored it for yourself.

No matter who is demanding an answer, no matter how pressing and insistent they may be, take your time… the world won’t end whilst they wait (and if it does then your answer won’t matter).

More later… x
