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.

Saturday Oracle – The End Of The Road

Go on, ask me if I’m surprised this one came up?

I choose the relevant combinations simply by allowing my hands to hover over the backs of the face down cards to discern where the energy accumulates and is more intense… today the Sacred Chalice was all but screaming at me. The only card that is neither a Grail Principle nor does it need an accompanying chakra card because it’s message is basic: “This is it.”

“This is what?” You may well ask.

This is the end of the road.

You can no longer keep doing what you’ve been doing in the way that you’ve been doing it and total surrender is now the order of the day.

The card has both positive and negative aspects so don’t make assumptions. On the one hand you may have hit rock bottom and be in need of a miracle because your life cannot continue this way, but on the other, the arrival of the miracle or jackpot itself also means your life cannot continue the way it did. Change is change, the end is the end, whether you view it as a windfall or a wipeout.

This of course is the weekend associated with resurrection which literally describes the death of the old and rising up as something new, and you will have a very strong notion already of which area of your life this applies to. Don’t try to hold onto the old paradigm, it no longer serves you.

When The Sacred Chalice shows up, whether good or not so much, it requires you to go back to basics, creating a solid foundation upon which to build from. Here I recommend following Principle 6: I AM Self-Full to focus on your primary needs and self care, especially as any change, even a major lottery win or finding and falling in love with Mr Right, will cause a jolt to the system.

The chalice symbolically represents the womb and is therefore always about nurturing oneself and allowing your higher power to provide a place of safety and sustenance materially and energetically.

Eat well, sleep well, meditate often and exercise gently to disperse any accumulation of stress hormones, preferably out in nature if the weather allows, and finally, ask for support from loved ones if you need it.  Though it may not be time to announce to the world what’s going on, a beloved or trusted friend can be the difference between joyful transformation and struggling in isolation.

I pray your Chalice be filled with joyful blessings, but I know they really are blessings even if you cannot see how that’s the case at present.

The enormity of the energy of this card makes me wishing you fluffy Easter Bunnies and a basket full of miracles seem a little frivolous, but I do.

New Life Begins With Death

Easter is almost upon us and I may be a little early but it feels right to me to be talking about new beginnings.

I began this year with an intention to create a life I didn’t feel the need to escape from, a life filled with joy and peace and love, that didn’t require a vacation to recover from it’s stresses however many times a year. I set off by announcing to my friends, especially the ones I usually travel with, that this year I wasn’t booking anything… not because I don’t intend to travel but because I feel the need to reconsider my reasons for doing so… I’m creating a life that’s built on discovery rather than escape, a life where I run to, not from.

In order to create this, which you must understand is quite an undertaking from where I was to where I want to be, I needed to take this year to stand and face those things I spent years attempting to escape, mostly though, I needed to face myself, my fears and my false assumptions about who I am.

The oracle at the weekend was all about owning who you are, what you want, and your expectations. It embraced Principle 5: I AM Liberated, which is focused primarily on freedom from material attachments but is more importantly about the stuff that you grip onto causing you to miss out on the stuff you really want.

New life begins with death. If you dream of being something different then you must let die who you were. If you dream of financial abundance then you must let die the things that drain your flow of abundance, if you dream of the perfect relationship then you must let die the dysfunctional connections that stand in your way, if you dream of amazing health and vitality then you must let die the counter-productive habits that thwart your progress, and if you want the perfect career that inspires you everyday to be creative and have fun, then you must let die the small self and step into your purpose.

I’m making real progress. Will I be done within a year? Does it matter? Creating a perfect life is a lifelong project, like I said, I don’t need to escape from the process because the process of creation is the process of living the perfect life.

Let the old you die, she’s served her time. Your new life is already here.

Carefully Handling My Wobbly Bits

Despite the title I assure you that this is a spiritual/self-awareness post, honest…

As I write this I’m preparing a lesson for a meditation class about creating change. I am experiencing unprecedented internal transformation at present and the process feels very comfortable for the most part simply because, having dived into the depths of self I have faced the true nature of what it is I actually wish to change in my life…

Over the last couple of days though I have had an unusually high number of conversations with friends, colleagues, and clients who are frantically transforming the external decor… from hair and wardrobe to phone and vehicle to address and interior design. Then last night it occurred to me that I too had been browsing the old paint swatches looking for the right hue to brighten up my living environment. What’s going on?

It’s simple. We grow or we die… growth is change.

The dilemma arrives when we use external change to temporarily numb the issues that are really requiring our attention. These sweeping statements of material upgrade are our 3rd dimensional attempt to force the new in our lives.

Change is always happening, but you cannot always see what is being morphed into a new and unfamiliar shape, causing apprehension and internal wobble, so we do what we can to imitate control over our lives to give ourselves the reassurance that change is good when in effect it is neither good nor bad it is simply necessary for growth, for survival.

I’ve decided that slapping some paint on the kitchen is a harmless way of carefully handling my wobbly bits while ever I’m conscious that that’s all it is.  So go forth and dye your hair, clear out your wardrobe, redesign your garden… whatever floats your boat in the moment… but don’t hide from the truth of what’s really requiring your attention underneath the surface glitter.

… And speaking of hair, let’s keep it positive today people!

Saturday Oracle – Resistance Offers Assistance

WIth 50 possible combinations, over a 100 interpretations and infinite outcomes there’s one that is not to be sniffed at…

You may not have noticed as it crept up on you but you have reached a stage in which you can no longer continue along the same lines that you’re used to. The Sacred Chalice presents itself only when the universe is ready to deliver… but this time she will not give up her wares without effort on your part.

The week ahead is offering you a unique set of circumstances, not all of which are comfortable, to utilise as a crucible for transformation.

There are times in your life when you have absolute clarity of vision, stark reality allows you to look at both the big picture and the minute details in a way that liberates you from the trance and in exchange for recognising the stubborn structures you have formed into an existence it offers you the keys to unlock the door to the kingdom… your own personal Camelot.

This unique opportunity can either debilitate you or force you to take control. You are being shown the need for no less than complete reconstruction in one or more areas of your life.

The Sacred Chalice is always a gift, though it’s appearance may at first appear to be more of a threat, but only if you yield to its power and shift out of denial. When the tower falls, to rebuild it the same way would be a wasted opportunity, a travesty even. Use the energy of the Grail to motivate and fuel your rebirth, remembering all the while that even though the process of birth maybe painful, the reward is nothing short of a miracle.

Look to where you have been dissatisfied with life for the areas that require remodelling: health, career, home, finance, relationships, etc and where you feel trapped or stifled in mind, body or spirit, but most of all recognise that the power lies with you.

Fear will inevitably create resistance but resistance offers assistance if you consider the consequences of remaining as you are now.

You can call upon the Archangel Samael to help you face your shadow and get out of denial, Archangel Michael to sever cords to unhealthy habits and Archangel Metatron will be more than happy to be your Divine life coach and motivator… Support is always here for you too.

Saturday Oracle – Hit The Jackpot!

Grail Oracle Chalice

For those of you, like me, that don’t like surprises, you must be seriously struggling this time of year. Not only are you stressing about whether you made it onto Santa’s  naughty or nice list, you’re proper panicking about whether or not he even got your order… I mean, how bad would it be if you actually had to fake it when you opened your pressies on Christmas morning because Santa bought you a Valentino Rossi Moto GP beach towel when you wanted a diamond ring? (Random I know, but my ex-husband actually did that once and thought it was an appropriate present just because he liked motorbikes)!

The reason we don’t like surprises is simply that we have no control over what’s about to happen, good, bad or ugly, but what if I told to you that you’re about to hit the Jackpot!?

This week The Sacred Chalice card almost exploded out of the deck as I was selecting a combination, the only one that does not require a complimentary chakra card. Now this card can have both positive and negative interpretations but following the last few weeks of stress, this card signals not just relief but complete transformation through nothing short of a miracle.

Whatever you have been waiting for, it’s arriving this week. Whatever you’ve been struggling with, it’s lifting this week. That being said, welcoming a miracle means you have to get out of your own way, don’t question it, don’t attempt to control it, just revel in it.

I don’t know if you’ve already posted your Christmas list to Santa but I do know that God and the angels heard your thoughts when you wrote it… I can’t promise you a diamond ring or anything else in the material sense but this weeks oracle is promising you an answered prayer.

Be open, be grateful and be blessed.

Opening A Doorway To Your Own Transformation

I’m a firm believer that its never too late to make a change or make a difference. That being said, intention is the first contributing factor in determining how effective that change will be, for example: a desire to win at the expense of another is less noble than a desire to help them achieve, but in terms of the outcome its the power behind the intention that drives the measure of success… in other words the motivation. To be honest the universe is neutral and will go all out to get you the outcome you’re focused on whether it be Self-Full or selfish, benevolent or malevolent. This post isn’t about making a judgement it’s about opening a doorway to your own transformation.

Imagine then that you have been half-heartedly telling yourself for years that there is something that you want, something that would, for the sake of this example, make your life so much easier, happier, healthier. Now take a look at the motivation behind you wanting to make that change… the phrase “half-heartedly” should offer a clue at the potential for your success when compared to the motivation behind continuing on as you are. Sure easier, happier and healthier sound nice but I’m doing ok, right? Now imagine for a second that all of a sudden you’re not doing ok…

Let’s say your health fails (God forbid). Now let’s say that, had you made those changes years ago, like you said you wanted to, you wouldn’t be facing the problems, however minor or major, now… again, no judgments just opening a doorway to your own transformation. We can’t go back and avoid the issues but now we have a choice: make the changes to repair or alleviate some of the damage thus drastically improving the prognosis or have a pity party and decide that the damage is already done so what’s the point? Whichever of these you decide, this neutral universe will match your vibration and go all out to bring your intention into reality multiplied by the power of your motivation.

It’s the same with mending anything, from the human body to relationships, from a broken vase to a car engine… remedial work can save, restore, improve and prolong the life of anything if the intention is there and the motivation is strong.

Ask yourself 3 questions today:

What do I need to change?

Why do I need to change it?

When will tomorrow be too late?

We just took a spin round Principle 6: I AM Self-Full.

The Most Significant Other

Directly ahead of you is a gateway. Story has it this ancient portal is enchanted and all who cross the threshold shall be changed forever. None that cross have ever returned, so then nobody can verify the truth of this faerie tale…

You have options now: the magical doorway to who knows where or, the path back from whence you came. One thing’s for certain, you may only remain here in this place between places for a short amount of time… time is a mysterious creature whom it would appear is eating up the path behind you as history disappears into myth and legend and as the monster eats, so too do your options slide into an irrevocable darkness that will continue to exist only within the recesses of your mind and memory.

It glows ahead of you, this slice through the fabric of reality, offering enticement to the uninitiated, promises of gold and fame, love and adoration, a path where all lack is left behind in the other dimension… this one, the one from which you have not yet dared step, but beware, beyond this gateway, secrets become realities and those daydreams of reward are merely that… or are they?

And the monster that is time is fast approaching. Will you, won’t you, step through the doorway of promises and dreams?

All who pass here must do so unarmed, naked and vulnerable, for this is a gateway of the soul, an initiation to burn away the lower heavy nature of the ego, of fear and of fight… only love shall pass this floral framed temporal aperture into a new day, beyond the dark moon, beyond the dark night…

What waits beyond the threshold? Step through with certainty that to pass through to the other side is to meet the most significant other that shall ever grace your path… for who you shall become awaits beyond the glow of tomorrow and I for one would love to meet her…

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.

Release The Butterfly

We humans are generally a ceremonial bunch, we like to mark occasions don’t we? Just think of all the “Days” we honour on the calendar: birthdays, high days, holidays, bank holidays, national days, international days… we mark open days, launch days, and we mark closing days… but they are all just days really.

On Saturday I posted an oracle reading that foretold of a birth, a new beginning that could take any shape or form and its to those new beginnings that we tend to latch on a significant day, like: “I’ll wait until New Year to make that change” for example.

Yesterday, a fairly insignificant day as far as I’m aware, certainly in my calendar anyway, was a day of significant change for me. No pomp and circumstance, no ceremony, no launch party, just me and the angels working together to bring about a brand new beginning for me… and I haven’t stopped smiling since yesterday morning. My new start was with regards to a healthier way of being in every area of my life: mind, body and soul working in unison to find the joy in every action. I should have known earlier in the week that this transition was imminent when a giant and very beautiful butterfly decided to take over the house and give me the dilemma of how to help it escape with minimum drama or damage… then yesterday I became the butterfly after spending the morning in meditation, fully connected to Source and receiving a vision of how it could be if I freed myself from everything that held me back but with minimum drama. I didn’t plan my own transformation, God did. I didn’t “launch” the new me or the new way, I was just spontaneously born anew from a new perspective and a new direction, my job now is to simply follow His lead moment to moment to sustain joy.

After taking last week off from posting, I’d like to say I took the week off altogether but actually it was my busiest week in a long time, I noticed that, having room for me was as simple as having room for God. Meditation is the single most healing, revealing, restoring action you can take in your journey toward creating the life you want… drop the drama today and release the butterfly within, a new you is possible in any moment of any day. Don’t wait for an occasion to start living the life you always dreamed of… now’s good.

Principles 1 & 2 in action.
