Quiet Please, Im Processing

Whenever you are amidst the tumultuous workings of a busy mind, the basics can get left behind in the interior swirl. Personally I have decided to take the day off… I almost didn’t write a post except to get my head in the game, which sounds like a contradiction doesn’t it? Take the day off/get your head in the game???

When I say take a day off its a day off from drama, from external influence and from distraction and getting my head in the game simply means to reconnect to my own core goals and ideals through deep meditation and connection to the angelic realm for guidance on which way to proceed.

The clutter that gets jammed up inside your head stops you from focusing on the most significant Principle of The Wholly Grail and that is simply to recognise that you are in fact the creator of your own life story and you have the power to build the chapters any way you want. Principle 1: I AM God sounds like a big pair of shoes to fill but those shoes come in your size too and you are not expected to stand in anyone else’s.

Getting clear on where you would like those shoes to take you needs a certain amount of discernment… if you are caught up in the eddy of outer appearances then you will no doubt be feeling a little unsure of which way next and even if you knew, how would you break loose of where you are at the moment?

“Quiet please, I’m processing” may have those who are used to having your attention feeling a little put out, but for you to steer your ship you have to get everyone else out of the control room, off the bridge and especially to get their hands off the wheel.

Whether you need an hour, a day, a week or an indefinite time out, you are worthy of your own peace.  You are brave enough to place a “do not disturb” on the door, a “hold my calls” on the phone and give yourself permission to come back to YOU.

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.

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!

Far More Profound

I have to admit that its been unusually difficult to write this post. I don’t mean difficult in an emotional sense, but in a creative sense. I seem to have got myself all turned around, unfocused and adrift. You might think that I’m still in holiday mode after my jaunt to Glastonbury but in actual fact where I’ve been for the last 24 hours is more akin to a visit to in internal jumble sale…

Imagine if you will, a mishmash of information and subtle intuitions arriving en masse in no particular order and taking up residence inside your head. Now do you best to either ignore or make sense of it… that’s where I’ve been.

I decided to spend yesterday doing a combination of practical physical work as mundane as I could muster (like laundry) and intermittent meditation to return to Source and clear my thoughts. Each time I entered a meditative state though, being a channel, more information flooded in, each time, I touched clarity but upon my return, the jumble sale increased. Instead of returning from Avalon with an overflowing cup, I arrived home with an overflowing head!

Recapturing the inner peace offered by the Wholly Grail isn’t a hard task once you identify the essence of what’s wrong and for me a combination of two Principles have switched off the psychic bombardment in an instant and returned my equilibrium, grounding me and cleansing away the residue whilst allowing me to hold the information… Principle 2: I AM Detached requires absolute presence. You cannot be grounded in the present when you’re attempting to reconcile the past or anticipate the future, now is where it’s happening and I’m at home here in this place of instant manifestation. Principle 4: I AM Truth dictates the need for trust that there may be a dichotomy between what you feel to be correct for you and what another states as gospel, history or fact, and that dichotomy is natural and acceptable.

Nothing I learned on my travels matches the guidebooks, that’s ok. Nothing I felt on my travels matches the rumours, that’s ok too. Nothing I learned about myself in the process matches my expectations, that’s a confirmation that the class I taught prior to leaving, about expectation leading to disappointment was right on point, and that’s ok too… what I did learn was that the Grail Principles are far more profound than even I imagined and that I have something important to do… and I learned that the way I do it will not suit everyone… and that’s fine too.

If you have been enjoying The Wholly Grail free insights then please share them, give others an opportunity to make their own mind’s up. If you are seeing one of my posts for the first time then scroll back through the archives and also explore the basic Principles, find your way to that place of peace within you… you won’t find it out there, that’s the point in case you missed it… I did, and I will again, but I have 7 easy steps to find my way home… follow me, I know the way.

This Particular Tournament

September, over the last few years has become a bit of a crucible for me. I have for some reason set myself up with the most ludicrous of “trials by combat” perhaps with the underlying, definitely more subtle understanding that these replications of Jacob doing battle with an angel in the desert might shift the course of my personal Grail path to one more aligned with the divine plan… not that you can actually fall off plan you understand but you can definitely flow with it or brace for impact.

Storms in nature necessarily occur to create change, and when stagnation occurs God often sends in Archangel Uriel (whose name means “Light of God” or “Fire of God”) to rustle up a little thunder and lightening… The same is true for our lives. You cannot keep the Grail. Inner peace is a resting place that when practiced using The Grail Principles can help you survive the most challenging of situations but externally, peace is temporary, change must happen… and September is as good a time as any, eh?

School commences around this time each year and why should that be contained within the academic community? The school of life has seasons, terms and semesters just the same. This year for me though I went back to school early, I prompted the change by choosing a path, you might say I decided what I might major in this coming year and September looks set to line up the relevant teachers, tutors, lecturers and timetable. Early signs indicate that the Universe may up the ante on the curriculum this year and survival is the minimum grade for a pass.

This time last year I was foolish enough to let someone else choose the lesson plan but today, shuffling around my schedule, goals and my plans for my own personal pilgrimage to the supposed site of legendary Avalon later this month… I feel a sense of accomplishment already because I know something really important that the other Knight’s entering this particular tournament don’t know… I’m already a winner.

Experience is the only grade that actually matters and good, bad or ugly, all experience grows the soul. No exam to be taken. The storm is simply the universe rearranging the players and the playing field (just like my mixed metaphors).

Well rested and with joy in my heart… Let the joust commence!

The Homecoming

Grail Oracle 2Grail Oracle Green

You’re struggling to determine a baseline for your emotions right now. One minute you’re excited to try something new and the next moment you’re terrified, first you’re ecstatic and then you’re the public face of depression… you are desperately trying to reconcile the two disparate parts but to no avail and it’s the fight to change the state of mind or indeed to deny or define it that is causing you to suffer this way.

Change is a constant, but it doesn’t necessarily happen at a constant rate. When circumstances arrange a quantum shift either internally or externally, the sudden departure from the known creates struggle.

Imagine if you will for a moment that you have God’s perspective, nothing is out of place from this viewpoint. The divine comedy/tragedy is playing out as per the script and the players are right on cue… enter stage left the next exciting development, exit stage right the beloved main storyline. This emotional baseline I was talking about was calibrated to the old story and God wants you to know that your current discomfort, your current resistance, is based solely upon your dependence on what was, your fear of what will be and most importantly your blindness to what is.

Right now you have an opportunity to create an amazing scene that will shape the rest of your personal story simply by letting go of that fear, accepting the temporary discomfort whilst the set and backdrop are rearranged and understanding that everything that we deem normal today was once new.

The Homecoming combines Principle 2: I AM Detached with the healing green of the heart centre… when this combination strikes, a time of retreat is warranted. Not a running and hiding kind of retreat but a withdrawal within where stillness lies amid the chaos. This blessed haven of balance and peace will restore you while ever you reach for love and turn from fear.

The sun continues to rise and fall and as they say: “This too shall pass.” Joy will follow if you let it.

Irreconcilable, Inconceivable Even

We attempt an analytical approach to unfathomable situations mostly because it’s the rational mind’s function to compute. Acceptance and allowing are concepts native to the opposite side, the receptive side of the brain. Acceptance is easy when the calculation amounts to a satisfactory conclusion but when the requisite parts don’t add up then reconciliation, i.e. closure doesn’t come and getting your head or more precisely your left brain hemisphere (the logical side) around that is like getting a computer to stop calculating the unsolvable mathematical equation you asked it to do.

One of my favourite programmes growing up was “The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy” and I remember the super computer, affectionately named “Deep Thought” being given an equation to solve… one question kept it occupied for thousands of years and it just kept computing and calculating… the question: “What is the answer to life, the universe and everything?” Thousands if not millions of years later it came up with the answer: “42” ( good old Douglas Adams).

The incessant drive to find answers is an admirable trait of the human psyche but not necessarily one that’s conducive to inner peace. Not all questions have answers, that’s irreconcilable, inconceivable even to the logical mind but to the part of you that is Divine there never was any question… all is, was and ever more shall be exactly as it’s meant to be.

The logical mind, like a child will try to understand… “Why?” will be it’s favourite word and no explanation will quench its thirst until it hears what it wants to hear to make the jigsaw pieces fit together, until the loose ends are tied and the uncertainty has been stored in pretty little boxes. Have compassion for the child but interrupt the calculation with a new programme: “I have faith that God knows the answer and I have faith enough in myself to feel complete without it.” …or of course if that doesn’t work you could always just go with 42!

The Trappings of a Peaceful Life

What is peace?

Perhaps peace is the ability to rise above the external turmoil or to stay centred in the midst of it? Perhaps it is the skill of allowing that turmoil to carry you, knowing full well it will pass? Life is a process made simpler by withdrawing from drama but isn’t the rollercoaster exactly what we came here to ride?

For each individual the trappings of a peaceful life are very different simply because we have varied tolerances for sensory input and stimulation. We have different expectations and physiologies, different attitudes, hopes and dreams.

As individual as every human fingerprint is the external search for inner peace… but the internal search, the only space in which a truly peaceful experience can be tapped, is universal…

We all need to feel safe, warm, sheltered, loved, heard, honoured and respected. When we do these things for ourselves they become an inside job and inner peace ensues. When we share these things with others we become family.

Today, everything that you need to feel peaceful, offer to someone else. You are the bringer of miracles and the most powerful creator in your own universe, if you can create peace – become peace.

That Place Where You Are Free

Where on the Grail path are you?

That’s a question that when asked, you may be tempted to list your spiritual accomplishments, many trainings, how many people you’ve helped and the number of certificates you’ve gained in the process. You may rank your distance travelled along the road by your income or your ability to live without one, these are all just comparables and comparing yourself to an outside standard actually means you are about as far from your destination as you can get.

It’s not a race, it’s not a competition, it’s the journey home.

When you’re asked where are you on your Grail path, the answer you’re looking for is “I’m home.”

Now you have to decide what coming home actually means for you. For me it’s peace, fulfilment, love, clarity, creativity, wonder and grace… an enlightened state of Open-Heartedness that can only be achieved when when both Principle 1: I AM God and Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted sit in unison. All the other Principles are guidelines to dismantle the blocks to embracing the first and the last. Coming home isn’t a long journey and in fact has nothing to do with distance. It’s a different path for each of us and there are a million external distractions to pull you from your quest, disorienting you and claiming to be the way home to the Grail but if it’s external its not home… I promise you it can’t be found out there. Sure you will catch a glimpse of it in the outside world, when you find momentary joy the Grail will appear, but it’s the joy that is home not the temporary trinket that you imagined brought that joy to you.

Home is that place where you are free and anything else is a poor imitation. Across these next few posts I’ll examine the 5 stages between God and your heart… the Principles that stand between you and home… between now and the next post though, your job is to examine what areas of your life you don’t feel free… let’s get serious about the quest this week.

Distant Echoes

Every morning I call in the angels to help guide me through the day whether I feel I need help or not. This morning Archangel Azrael asked me “Will you let us help you today?” I replied: “I will always let you help me but today I’m unsure what it is I need help with.” Azrael’s response was one I had not expected, he simply said “Are you at peace?”

It’s been a strange morning, I awoke early and turned over to go back to sleep. The feeling was not one of depression believing I had nothing to get up for, it was one of gratitude that today I had the opportunity to have a lie in. My first thought upon waking was a random memory of a summer day, a yellow tricycle that by today’s standards would be considered a health and safety hazard, psychedelic hotpants and legs that went on forever sporting scuffed knees, bare feet on weather-smoothed York stone flags… and I remember thinking that was almost 40 years ago, but I had no clue what triggered the memory other than the carefree pure innocent delight of being without concern for anything other than now and not needing to….

“Are you at peace?”

I searched myself for the answer. I feel calm, I thought; I’m not missing anything, other than the usual things that life propels you towards but even those seem little less than distant echoes for now; am I at peace?

I don’t feel un-peaceful (if that’s even a word), but if I search myself, I don’t feel peaceful either…

I found the words to answer Azrael, “I feel lost.”

“Then will you let us help you?”

“Is it not ok to feel lost? I’m not afraid here, I’m not uncomfortable, I see no reason to shift in any direction… I am always grateful for your assistance and I will never turn it down, but what is it I require assistance with?”

“Are you at peace?”

Sometimes it takes a higher perspective to elevate the feeling from detachment to contentment, from contentment to peace and from being lost to feeling joy in the centre of exactly nowhere. Nowhere, everywhere, right here, right now.

Principle 2: I AM Detached

May angels help you find your peace.
