In The Presence Of Heroes

Many of you have them, heroes that is. Perhaps those in the media, those in powerful positions within your industries or interests, but how many of your heroes exist within your current circle of friends?

I feel very blessed to know quite a few, what I call, everyday heroes. People who inspire me day in, day out with extraordinary feats of endurance, patience, forgiveness, strength of character and the ability to break through personal barriers in their own lives and I am genuinely grateful for each of them.

When you focus on what needs to transform within your own life, often it’s difficult to see a way to break through old conditioning… My mum has this saying that makes me laugh “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks” which is basically her way of saying she can’t be bothered to break an old habit if it requires effort, but there are times when you genuinely don’t know how to start. This is the time when you call upon your heroes and ask yourself: “What do I admire about them?” “What attributes would I like to emulate in my own life?”

If you are surrounded by heroes then you too are blessed because you naturally begin to morph into the same vibration as those you spend your time with. If however, you find yourself spending the majority of your time with the victim brigade then guess where your energy is headed? A few of you will be strong enough to pull the crowd up by the bootstraps into the 5th dimension but most will be betting against losing odds. So here’s the thing… place yourself in the presence of heroes.

When it comes to The Wholly Grail, Principle 4: I AM Truth asks that you follow your own star and so emulating your heroes might seem counter-intuitive, but when you have identified and are focused on the star, it’s helpful if someone is around to demonstrate how to tie the rope and lasso the one with your name on it!

The heroes in your life will show you how, tell you you can, ┬ácheer you on whilst you try and open the champagne when you succeed… The heroes are my kind of people.

P.S. if you are ready to become the hero then check out my Path of Petals course in the Training and Courses section of the site or book a Grail Consultation for a one-to-one.

 

It’s Inevitable

You’re going to upset some people, it’s inevitable. You cannot please all of the people all of the time… and why should you? Of course saying that, you don’t need to deliberately go out of your way to piss people off either, well at least not if you are reading this from a 5th dimensional, compassionate perspective, but here’s the thing: you want to live an empowered, fulfilling life and I’m guessing that it hasn’t always lived up to your expectations, right? Well, there’s a reason for that…

You, the old you that is, have gathered an entourage of devotees. Trust me you have! They are family, friends, neighbours, loved ones, work colleagues, the local newsagent and the kid behind the checkout at your local store to mention but a few and they have an expectation that you live up to your end of the bargain and don’t disturb the status quo. You, being that creature of habit, act a certain way, behave in certain patterns… for example, you eat the same cereal, buy and read the same newspaper and magazines, you take a predictable amount of time in the shower, even the girl on the phone at the Chinese takeaway knows in advance when and what you’re going to order… predictable see? Now this expectation of you that your devotees have become accustomed to, what happens when you change it up?

Once is a blip, twice is a phase, but three times, well now that’s a problem… and your devotees are going to go hell for leather trying to correct your course back to the familiar. It’s their comfort zone you see. “But I’ve already bought the cereal” “What do you mean your having a bath?” “The Times? Are you serious? You know there aren’t as many pictures right?” “Fruit? Are you sure you don’t want Hobnobs, they’re on offer?” Meanwhile at the local Golden Dragon, the girl on the phone’s been let go, due to lack of business… your business.

You’re going to upset some people, it’s inevitable. None of them can see this journey from your perspective, none of them are walking in your shoes or have felt your pain or heard your silent cries for help. When they can’t persuade you to revert to old patterns they will become angry with you, blame you and secretly or not-so-secretly wish for your failure… forgive them, they are acting out from their own discomfort regardless of yours.

Nobody said it would be easy becoming the greater you, but once the greater you becomes the norm, the devotees will take one of three paths: they’ll rise up and join you up there in your new personal heaven, they will look on from the side lines in quiet envy or they’ll fall by the wayside to be replaced by a whole new set of devotees… the kind who recognise a true Grail Knight when they see one, because they too have undergone the struggle to be who they are and have survived the battle for individuation.

The Level Playing Field

Grail Oracle 5Grail Oracle Blue

Supposing all external accoutrement were removed from the equation? Supposing you had nothing to lose and by the same token nothing to gain? What if there was another who was in similar circumstances to you? Would this gift of equality create sufficient a negotiating platform for the ulitmate interdependent relationship?

The combination of Principle 5: I AM Liberated meets the royal blue energy of the throat chakra to form “The Level Playing Field” where at last the gloves are off.

This week we are being presented with the gift of transparency where all your cards should be laid on the table… its potentially a crap hand that you carry and you have nothing left to negotiate with. This is the time when miracles can happen simply because you have acknowledged your situation, stepped out of denial and finally owned up to the fact that this is all you have and all that there is.

Its sounds pretty dire doesn’t it? Don’t be misled by the seemingly pessimistic introduction because this week sees you shift into a position of pure power. Not power over another as that can just as easily be taken away, but power over your own life and your own choices; and your next move will be determined not by need, not by lack, but by creative intent. If you have nothing and your counterpart has nothing you need, and vice versa, together you can create something that will benefit both of you just purely for the joy of interconnecting.

There is no other agenda because there is nothing at stake. Enjoy making friends, its that easy.

The Membership part of the website is currently under construction and will be coming soon. If it were available today we would be exploring this week’s reading in more depth in the “Optimising The Oracle” section of the site… for now though, I’ll have to leave you there.

More next week… x
