The Alighting Point

Grail Oracle 4Grail Oracle Yellow

I have this recurring dream from time to time of being on a bus approaching my stop and finding myself struggling to collect all my bags and luggage together in time to get off. Sometimes the driver is waiting at the stop with the door open but the more I pick up the stuff appears and I have shout to him “please wait.” At other times I’m waiting at the stop and the bus I want to get on is fast approaching but similarly I have to gather my things before it arrives or I’ll miss it… I can feel myself panicking all the while. Obviously it’s a dream about baggage and the need to lighten the load or opportunities will be missed to progress along to the next stage of my personal evolution… but it’s not about the baggage that this oracle is revealing, it’s about the reason to get off the bus.

The Alighting Point is a combination of Principle 4: I AM Truth and the effervescent yellow of the solar plexus chakra and is all about blissful experiences.

This week will see you recognising an opportunity not to peruse the goal represented by the destination stated on the front of your proverbial bus (the long term plan), but to get off, wander around and enjoy the opportunities along the road. It’s like being on your way to work, seeing a fun fair by the roadside and deciding that would be so much fun and you fancy a bit!

Now in realistic terms allowing yourself to stop and savour the simple pleasures that are offered to you may actually kick start a whole new journey… The destination may be the same (if you want it to be), but you may find that another bus, another route or another way of arriving is far more fun than the same old same old that you’ve been used to.

Joy and bliss arrive at the most unexpected moments when you allow yourself to taste something new: a new hobby, a new project, a new love… playfulness in this case is the key to rediscovering your love of life and it may just be exactly what you never knew you were looking for. Expect your social life and circle to expand as a result of taking a risk by getting off the bus and allowing a little indulgent behaviour to guide you towards a brand new truth.

You may be revisiting past loves that you thought were lost, talents and gifts re-emerging that you left in your childhood and inhibitions being cast by the wayside as exhilaration takes over and euphoria prompts you to say “again, again!”

“Scream if you wanna go faster”… ┬áthere’s always another bus, have some fun.

More next week… x

Cardinal Rule

I forgot a cardinal rule this week and it caused a stall in the flow of creativity. In order to kick start that creativity I felt the need to kick against a fixed point… a bit like a sprinter pushing hard against the blocks at ready, set, go! Unfortunately in the game of life, pushing against a fixed point usually means creating some form of personal drama as drama, in its own right is fuel for a good story… but it’s hardly helpful in creating a peaceful life. Creativity on the other hand is essential for bending the light of Source energy into a form that pleases you and fulfils your needs to move the story along.

So what was the cardinal rule?

You don’t need a reason to create.

This morning I awoke and had an urge to paint, my logical brain then piped up and said: “How is that going to move you forward on the path?” I basically chastised myself for wasting time on triviality when work needed to be done. The truth is, I make my own deadlines for work, what if today I don’t want to move forward? What if I want to sit and explore right now through a different creative medium? What if by painting I find a new passion that God wants me to use in my work? What if I really enjoy myself?

My creativity stalled because I felt I needed to mould it into a productive form that fits within the boundaries of my conventional day to day tasks, that the outcome needed to be useful in some way or strategic, calculating even. Instead of just creating from my intuitive guidance, for my pleasure, I told myself it had to have a point and a discernable purpose. My inner child had a plan and my outer grown up shat all over it from a great height… and then the well was dry.

Convention, when living a fulfilling, peaceful, joyful life, is a prison whose walls not only confine you but drain the life and light out of you…

I’ve got an overgrown garden, 3 half written training programmes in progress, meditations to record, research to complete and the next chapter of The Wholly Grail book to write… I’m off to get my paints out, sod it!

Principle 2: I AM Detached and Principle 5: I AM Liberated.
