Tiptoe On A Knife Edge

Balance is in full focus today as we arrive at the Spring Equinox (autumn if you’re in the Southern Hemisphere) that seemed to creep up on us whilst we were occupied with everything and nothing. One of two points in the calendar where the light and the darkness share precisely the same amount of moments and we pivot towards a new dominance. As we tiptoe on a knife edge seasonally, so too do we have an emotional choice to make… do we favour the darkness or the light.

The oracle combination I pulled at the weekend mirrored this shift from healthy exploration into potential addition and sets the scene for this post. Though it appears at first glance to have a sinister undertone it is in fact an invitation to understand that within you exists that point of perfect balance, liminal space, neither light nor dark, just sublime equilibrium, a pause between breaths, when you are neither one thing nor the other and power runs through you without resistance or hindrance… and then trust, faith, belief and innocence give way to fear on this knife edge… fear of falling.

When you fear something you create it.

Where you had balance you resorted to your conditioned state of believing that you needed something to maintain it, that someone might try to take it from you and you must protect it. And in that moment you veer to the left or to the right and the sharp line you were treading begins to wobble as you flail about trying to regain your centre but falling at this stage is inevitable… just as surely as tomorrow the light, the daylight hours will gain ground in the north and the darkness or night will take back dominion over the south.

It’s a subtle shift, a tilt you may not notice at first, but opposing forces must continue to circle around each other so that the elaborate game of life goes on.

Take time to honour and notice the shift within. Whatever state you are moving from or to emotionally, physically, intellectually, geographically… what ever area of your personal experience is evolving, observe, respect and bless this point of transition.

Take a moment today to assess where you’re at. Don’t panic, don’t struggle, balance will be restored naturally when you relax and trust that you are exactly where you need to be. Principle 2: I AM Detached will help you stay present with what is and Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted allows giving and receiving in equal measure… or in other words: perfect balance.

Saturday Oracle – The Welcome Mat

Dealing with emotional pain is a very personal journey and there are no real rules on how to protect yourself from further assail, but there are common markers along the road to healing.

This week’s combination, bringing together a matching energetic set: Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted and the emerald green of the heart chakra, are highlighting a part of that process that is crucial to your forward journey.

You are being asked, as we step into a week containing a powerful new moon and a solar eclipse, to look at the walls you have furnished around your emotional centre as a result of recent tribulations and more poignantly, how those walls may affect new relationships.

Self-preservation is a serious business and hardwired into human circuitry, meaning any and all risks that follow pain, that may result in more of the same, are understandably cut off at the pass. The wounded heart certainly doesn’t roll out the welcome mat to would be assailants…

…But you’re being warned this week that you are seeing threats where there are friends and allies, and in searching for safe haven you may be creating a prison or isolation you won’t want to remain inside for long.

Love is being offered to you in more than one form in the days ahead. Do not be tempted to lock out the very thing you need because having been a victim of another’s character flaws forces you to become a victim of your own.

I AM Open-Hearted is the Principle of the true Grail Knight, the true hero who lets love be the guiding light in all interactions. You are being called to step into the light of absolute faith, trust and surrender to the highest power of all… nobody will blame you for being cautious, that’s your right, but you have the power within you to win. Nobody can put out your light, that is the Divine shining through you and it is inextinguishable.

New life is knocking at your door, the door to your heart… open up and give it a chance to prove it is worthy of touching heaven, because that what lives inside your love. Heaven.

Nothing To Do With You

Every once in a while you whole world appears to collapse in on itself. The ground disappears from beneath that beautiful meandering river that you were flowing along and suddenly you are free-falling  down a thundering waterfall, flailing about trying to grab a hold of something solid, something definite…

Did life as you know it just end? Did your plans, dreams, goals just crash on the rocks below or get washed away whist you were still falling?

In a universe this vast, its impossible to be unaffected by external events, other people and their actions, even if the connection isn’t locally recognisable like say a war creating global financial instability which in turn affects the amount of retail spending and a recession hits which causes you to be made redundant… the war has nothing to do with you, does it? You may not have made the connection but it’s affects have caused the bottom to drop out of your world… now that’s just an example. Let’s say that your particular river has been flowing towards merging with another river but somewhere out in the world more than one tributary stream influences the flow of that river and causes it to divert and damn up…

Those tributaries have nothing to do with you but now your world and your flow is affected…

So the bottom dropped out of your world and you’re in freefall… the most significant mechanic of The Wholly Grail is that you cannot keep the Grail. Life will not allow you to become complacent or take it for granted, it’s the detours that keep the journey interesting and indeed keep it moving forward. So you hoped that the goal would be in sight by now but the truth is that God never lost sight of it in the first place… He’s testing your survival skills at this point and attempting to synchronize the rate of flow in each of the rivers, it’s your job to remember that God is your dingy and when you hit the bottom of the falls all you have to do is climb back in and you’ll be floating on your way again.

Keep returning to the true Source of your Grail and no part of your adventure will be in vain.

Together We Are Blinding!

A few months ago I noticed that my personal Grail cup had sprung a leak and so I set about repairing the damage…

As a perfectionist in many areas of my life I had embraced the idea that imperfections were a great way of assessing sincerity and acceptance in others. I did this subconsciously of course, I mean why would my conscious, fully awakened self need to test people? This phenomenon occurred unbeknownst to me in every aspect of my life from my physical vessel to my home, from my work to my relationships. The problem being that the flaws I created didn’t test how others saw or accepted me but instead how I saw and accepted myself… now there’s a paradox if ever I heard one simply because when you don’t accept yourself that’s when others fail to accept you. Your flaws do not deter the fundamentally flawed, in fact they attract others to you, what repels them or creates insincerity within them is the massive leak of energy seeping from the metaphorical Grail that either washes them clean away or feeds their greed depending on the people involved.

The first kind being those who come in love, those wishing to embrace you and add to your light and the second having similar leaky vessels and so refuelling from your leak… sounds all very technical but here’s the thing: plugging up your vessel allows it to fill up and thus allows others to refuel from the overflow instead of the depleting spillage. There will still be those opportunists who drink it in,  no matter: there is plenty more where that came from; there will still be those who get washed away, frightened by the light, no matter: God will find them a safe shore upon which to rest before finding there energetic match; but then there is a third type of perfectly imperfect partner in crime… I’ve have lots of those thankfully, they are the ones whose imperfections make them shine just as brightly as mine do me and together we are blinding!

If you want to plug your leak, if you want to allow others to see and accept you just as you are all you have to do is love yourself unconditionally, not in spite of your imperfections but because of them… you’ll probably find that many of them disappear anyway once you no longer feel the need to test people.

Principle 1: I AM God (therefore perfect)

Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted (therefore the imperfections are perfect too)!

Possibility of a Miracle

Well, here it is again folks: the 1st Monday of the month, May no less, which is by far my favourite month of the year simply because it’s the month I arrived here on planet Earth! As you have come to expect (if you’ve been keeping up) its challenge day…

My mind has been set to pondering a few cliches and old adages over the past couple of days, ones like “never look a gift horse in the mouth” and “fool me once: shame on you, fool me twice: shame on me.” These two sayings alone build a picture of how cynical and jaded we become as experience illicits the onset of mistrust and stops us from opening our hearts to give people second chances.

Do you believe people are capable of changing?

I know I’m not the same person I was, I spend so much time working on the different aspects of my own personal Grail that only when I slip into victim mode, (which happens occasionally still but by no means often), do I ever consider placing blame or full responsibility on another, instead I search the mirror that is the relationship to understand where both parties may have shut down their hearts and their ears, denying the basics of Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted and defending their own truth whilst attempting to manipulate the others and thus allowing only a partial glimpse of Principle 4: I AM Truth…

So your challenge and mine this time around is to take every gesture at face value, allow a second chance even where you fear a repeated pattern, allow the world or simply another human being to surprise you, allow yourself the possibility of a miracle just by understanding that what went wrong last time around may have come from the other party’s fears and insecurities, from their unreadiness to advance into what seemed like a dangerous arena. Your challenge is to welcome a potentially wounded and equally jaded and cynical, inevitably flawed-as-we-all-are soul fully into your heart space where you both may heal.

Softly softly, gently gently and maybe second, third or even fourth time lucky…

Right then, I’m ducking out from posting for a few days for my Birthday, I’ll be back with The Intuitive Chalice Oracle reading on Saturday, so…
