Fuelling Intention – Don’t Waste The Magic

I’m not usually one to be lost for words but there’s a reason I didn’t post a blog yesterday. Have you ever heard the idea that the more you talk about what’s happening the more you give away the power for it to happen? The power fuelling intention – don’t waste the magic… The Faerie Magic!

Today is Lammas, or Lughnasadh if you prefer… it’s summer harvest and therefore a day to reap the fruit. (If you’ve been reading for a while then you’ll understand why I’m hoping for a pear harvest).

More importantly for me it would have been my dad’s birthday today had he made it this far, so I’m very aware that his energy is around today, mainly because my thoughts are with him and because during this time of harvest, when my own faerie magic is finding a form to take, manifesting my own hopes, dreams and wishes, my ancestral line are adding their magic into the mix to provide weight to Destiny’s endeavour.

We were always going in this direction and every one of our ancestors that dared to tread the path before us did so to lead to this point, everything they did, including my pop’s early departure… it was part of my preparation for this dance…and the dance will pave the way for whatever or whoever comes next.

Take today to honour those that came before. I know there are national and international holidays to do that but today being the first harvest, it’s a day where we reap the abundance that they created, that they stepped aside to leave behind for us. It’s a day where gratitude should be our guide and sharing our only goal.

Whatever your intentions turn into, know that they are paving the way for future generations and that one day in the distant future a harvest will be born of your sacrifice too. Don’t waste the magic.

Into The Swing – Reassess Your Priorities

If something pivotal has occurred in your life, no doubt things will look confusing for a time until you get into the swing of things.

Accepting new information or a new set of circumstances often involves integrating into your world something that wasn’t there before or even an absence of something that was. Schedules may go awry, routines become entangled and proverbial balls get dropped on the floor.

It’s perfectly acceptable to take time to find your new normal and more than acceptable – it’s absolutely necessary. In many cultures we call it the honeymoon phase, it’s where you get a temporary free pass… more accurately it’s the learning phase where everyone involved takes on the personality of the innocent fool, the student tip-toeing through life’s brand new classroom absorbing information, skills and new techniques as they go.

Reassess your priorities now based on Principle 4: I AM Truth.  What this means is focusing on what’s true and pertinent for you at this stage in your journey. Some of those lovely balls that smash on the floor may actually be filled with nothing more than air and now you feel its time to leave them behind to concentrate on a more authentic version of your dream. Sure, you may feel like you are letting some folks down but the absolute truth of the matter is that you will never be able to please everybody anyway, so then far better to please yourself and allow others to adjust in their own way and go through the same process of reassessing their own priorities.

The world adjusts and organises itself daily to new parameters and this is no different.

It’s helpful to understand what your priorities actually are. In the Seekers section of the site this coming week I’m posting an article about achieving balance, in it will be a chart of all the relevant areas of life that are requiring your attention. It’s free to join as a Seeker here if you would like to take a look.

…For now though, enjoy the temporary chaos, it’s the most satisfying disarray you’ll experience… it’s called creating a new life.

Understanding Your Motives – In It For The Long Game

There is an energy at present that centres around the culmination of a lot of years of focus. The potential now is so intense that whatever happens next is either the end of the beginning or the beginning of the end – make or break so to speak. That kind of intensity though can cloud judgment, force reactive behaviour and in some cases cause you to run towards an outcome or even away from it depending on your dominant archetypal energy.

Whatever this main focus of attention is, you can bet that all the other aspects of day to day life have taken a back seat and that imbalance is already occurring. (If you’re a member, I will be addressing this imbalance in the Seeker’s section this week. You can join for FREE here).

Here though, I would instead like to concentrate on one potential stressful factor that could become the trigger for one of those reactive behaviours: Have you forgotten why?

Understanding your motives for any action is the purest way to ensure you meet the challenge in a ‘success focused’ way.

Let’s take a new relationship as an example. Whether it be a romantic relationship or a business partnership or any other meeting of minds and hearts, it takes two parties to have the same agenda in order to bring about the desired outcome. Factor in free will, personal schedules, historical baggage, poor communication or misunderstandings and the whole process takes much longer.

Now baring in mind that we are feeling the universal flow bringing things to a pinnacle, all these trifles will no doubt be raising cortisol levels and pushing all the internal fear buttons… so now remember: “Why?”

You’re in it for the long game.

You’re not trying to get somewhere, this IS the relationship. It’s not where it is going but it is where it is, it is what it is, and what it is is growing… a work in progress, a masterpiece of manifestation. Look how far you’ve come.

The momentary surge of ‘now or never’ is just an illusion of time. The time is indeed right for this next step but this next step is simply another step in the story, beautiful now and heading towards many more beautiful things.

Be assured that what you feel under all the uncertainty, the reason you began this quest, that bit is real; the fear, the stress and the urgency are symptoms of insecurity that arise when your “what?” becomes the focus instead of your “why?”

Patience combined with the absolute clarity of the vision that began this journey will carry you through the next few days… and then the next part of the adventure will commence… it has been promised.

Monday Mind Manoeuvre – Taking The Next Natural Step

When you see life as a journey along a path, The Grail Path for example, each stage becomes a step that leads to the next and the next and so on. Taking the next natural step is a sign that you are ready for whatever life is revealing and you’re in alignment with what destiny has in store.

When something stops being big and scary and becomes just the next logical action in a series of cumulative lessons, it is evidence that divine timing has lined up all the relevant pieces to create an energetic bridge across what may once have seemed like a vast chasm.

A concept I use when introducing people to their guardian angels when they have never done anything like it before, is the visualisation of the rainbow bridge…

Standing on the edge of a great precipice, the other side clearly out of reach and the depths below obscured by a mysterious mist. You here a faint and gentle whisper, haunting and yet subtle in rhythm and pitch, calling you forward: “I’m here. Trust.” As the voice gets gradually louder and more reassuring you notice the mist begin to rise with its soft melody from the depths of the chasm below. Once the mist has risen high enough for the light to shine upon it, the light is refracted through the water vapour and forms a beautiful rainbow bridge to the other side…. and the voice calls you softly to cross the light bridge, step by step, fully supported by divine assistance and faith, whereupon reaching the other side of the great divide your guardian angel is waiting for your arrival with open arms.

It’s a beautiful visualisation and holds within it the seeds of wisdom for any apparently unreachable goal. Just because you couldn’t always see the bridge, or indeed the next step, doesn’t mean it wasn’t there or won’t show up when you need it to.

Whatever huge leap of faith you may be asked to take this week, believe that it is the next natural step and the chasm between where you are and where you want to be is actually just a matter of focusing on the light and believing the rainbow will appear when the timing is right.

May your Monday bring you a bridge to your dearest wishes.

A Moment Of Reflection On Gentle Decline

Everybody is trying to get somewhere, achieve something. The uphill climb can be slow and methodical, and we are often pushing a boulder of an intention up the hill in front of us making visibility obscured by a mass that’s all up in your face for weeks, months or even years.

Finally reaching the zenith of the hill is a moment of celebration or simply just relief, because you have put the hard work in and delivered the intention to a high point from where it can be launched towards its real destination, which lets face it is not isolated on the top of a hill, the hill is a vantage point from where to really begin.

All that work to get to this point and you now have options before you: after all, it’s all downhill from here no matter which direction you look. Not downhill in a negative, falling apart sense, but rather in a “one small push and the ball starts rolling” sense…  but which direction will you push?

Now is the time to take a moment of reflection on gentle decline. Once that push happens your intention will take on a life of its own and gather momentum quickly, so much so you may need to run to keep up with it. That’s what you dreamed of and that’s what will happen.

Pause, breathe, appreciate, decide… then push.

Wholly Grail Principle 6: I AM Self-Full, is an inward journey towards being. As you stand at the top of your hill, the launch point of your most precious dream, now is the perfect time to check in with you, so let’s do that together today to ensure that:

1. You’re pointing your intention towards the right slope (target).

2. You have enough strength for the push (and then to keep up with the rolling stone).

3. Your boulder (emotions, level of learning, skills etc. are strong enough to withstand the ever increasing momentum).

In real terms its about checking in with your health, your motives and your emotions to make sure you have, not just enough energy, but abundant overflowing energy, more than enough to share as this intention you have created for yourself will likely involve or affect others immediately that you press that finger against the rock and send it hurtling down the hill, one finger is all it will take now.

Today then:

Refocus on all the other stuff happening in your life. Tie up loose ends, cut loose ties, remove the energetic and even physical clutter. You’ve done most of the work but you have had this boulder in your face for so long that you haven’t noticed the grass around it needs cutting.

Eat well, refuel, get back into you body and out of your dream-making head for a little while. Grounding outside with Mother Nature… pamper yourself, be good you yourself and then ask some questions:

1. How worthy do I believe I AM of achieving my dreams?

2. How present AM I with what is and allowing of what might be?

3. How forgiving AM I of any past or potential shortfalls on my expectations?

4. How authentic AM I being with myself and others?

5. What baggage AM carrying into my awakening dream?

6. AM I physically, emotionally and mentally prepared to hold my own in new circumstances?

7. Can I balance my giving and receiving from the universal supply of abundance that is my birth right?

Reconcile these in your moment of reflection and then point your finger and push. May your boulder roll straight and true and your dreams become a beautiful reality.

The Priestess And The Thundermaker

The last few days as I’ve been contemplating last weekend’s oracle, I’ve been reminded of an old story, of which a re-imagined version: The Priestess And The Thundermaker I would like to share with you now.

Once upon a fairy tale, in a forest alive with whispers from the various magical beings, was a woman, openly accepting of all manner of life and its divine right to be. To some she was the Oracle, to whom they would gravitate in times of both great need and of great abundance… the first they would ask and the first they would tell. In humility she gave of her best, opening their hearts and minds to the possibilities that already existed within them, that they may go and create the forest anew for the highest good of all with their newly remembered innate power.

The place where this Priestess resided within the forest was a simple dwelling, door always open but protected by a force field of pure love and light. It was long since prophesied that one day would come a storm, a storm so intense that the force field would be charged by lightening and grow to encompass the whole forest and even the world beyond. Some believed, some became weary at the centuries that had passed by, but all knew of the prophesy.

Just beyond the boarders of the forest lived a Shaman, a powerful co-creator with the magical forces of manifestation. Some called him a healer of enormous skill, a wanderer, a shapeshifter, but all respected his wisdom regardless that they sometimes feared his apparent power.

The Shaman had for many moons witnessed through the whispers of the forest, the power of the Priestess, and was aware also from his connection to all that there is, that the oncoming storm was prophesied. Unlike the rest of the forest he along with the Priestess understood that in order for the perfect storm to arise the timing must coincide with the coming together of the creative and the receptive, the masculine and the feminine, the yang must meet the yin for the force field to be struck and explode to encompass all life, all love.

Now nobody really knows the reason for the next part of the story but here goes… Having returned from his wanderings the Shaman had gathered that the Priestess had found peace, no longer waiting for the perfect storm, expecting that it would arrive in its own time in a format that even she, a powerful seer, could not anticipate. This disturbed him, we don’t know why, perhaps the whispering had always inspired him and helped to propel his own work in the world beyond the magical forest. His motives unclear, his actions were evident…

At the edge of the forest was the cave of echoes. He rested here sometimes and knew of its acoustic healing properties. He set to work inside the cave creating crashes and bangs and as much noise as he could, knowing the echoes would rumble through and around the forest for all to hear but especially for the Priestess… an omen? The coming storm? Would this be the time of great illumination, the time where lightening would finally strike and love flow over the whole world?

Each time the Shaman had returned in the past, the thunder would commence. Though the inhabitants of the forest believed in the prophesy as a literal storm, the Priestess knew that its symbolic nature was more likely… the day The Thundermaker stopped crashing and banging around the cave and stepped foot inside the forest, illumination would come, lightening would metaphorically strike and the combined alchemy of The Priestess and The Shaman, the cooperative creative power of Yin and Yang, shadow and light, would encompass the known world in an outpouring of love.

But she had heard the thunder before, so many times had the rumble resonated through her magical land… and she couldn’t see clearly past the dark clouds of experience to know if this clatter was the annunciation of the arrival of the storm or simply an unspecified attempt by the Shaman to remind the forest of his existence.

The universe asked that she suspend disbelief and stay open to the possibility of a miracle…

They say lightening never strikes twice. In the forest, until now, lightening simply never strikes… but the universe knows she has always remained open to the possibilities.

Yes I know I just played with The Boy Who Cried Wolf but it’s such a beautiful depiction of my point.

I hope you enjoyed it. Stay open. There may be weather just up ahead.

Monday Manifestation Moment – Leaving Room

Manifestation seems to be the whole world’s favourite pass time at the moment but it’s nothing new, the world of the world is in fact all a product of manifestation so feeling like we’ve invented it is just as silly as claiming responsibility for the creation of the Earth itself. Creation is an on going process of which we have been given an active design-led role and also a front row seat in witnessing the unfolding of what is quite probably the biggest spectacle in the universe, well this sector anyway. Leaving room for the performance to thrill you is the part we forget.

It’s this front row where you get to see all the small details up close, the ones you’ve worked so hard on during the production phase of the great story, translating abstract inspiration into tangible, workable scripts for all the players to follow that your performance might play out on the great stage of life… but you forgot that the players are themselves scriptwriters.

You don’t recognise this part of the story. Don’t fool yourself into thinking you know where you are right now. The script you wrote has been discarded and all the leading roles a ad-libbing their hearts out… you have no choice now but to get off that front row seat and take your place on the stage.

As its Monday and you’re probably far to busy to understand all the metaphor, let me be clear:

New information can only be accepted when you leave room to learn. New wisdom comes from participation in the changes that new information results in. Acceptance is a product of a humble attitude to the Divine Plan, to which non of us humans have the full script, just the bit of it we are individually writing with every choice that we make. Chaos is only chaos from the inside, from the all-seeing perspective it’s all beautiful and just as it should be, just as it was, just as it always shall be… Manifestation in motion.

Whatever life throws at you today, you are privileged to be playing a central role in the biggest stage production ever imagined.

Bravo!

What’s In A Word And Does It Really Matter?

Thoughts become things. When we speak our thoughts (or communicate them through some other means like this post for example) we begin the process of turning thought into form.

A thought is consciousness, high speed vibration. Sound is a vibration that resonates at slower speed, and matter is slower still… “matter”?

Thoughts fuelled by emotions, spoken with intent, invoke more emotions which stir actions, which in turn create worlds… or destroy them. So what’s in a word and does it really matter?

You may have randomly stumbled across my post today and therefore have little idea of where this is coming from so I urge you to go back and follow my train of thought from the last few posts, but as a quick update this week has been throwing up references to the past and to situations, objects, projects, people, connections and relationships that have been left by the wayside as the path of life has unfolded for me. With each of these references, or more accurately remembrances, has been an underlying question: “what part did I play in how that unfolded?”

Word’s really do matter and when it comes to historical karma, no matter how low vibrational the word “sorry” might seem, sometimes acknowledging the role you played in any given situation, taking responsibility for any wrongdoing and the expression of a heartfelt apology, can be be the key needed to transform your most dire mistakes into your greatest lessons.

There are those who would disagree with me, it’s ok, each of us is responsible for our own karma anyway.

Repentance is about acknowledging where your ego led the way and fear spoke in opposition to your higher truth, it is the release of lower energies like guilt, regret and blame, and it is the claiming of absolution and the reclaiming of your own power through declaration of ownership over your own emotions and the choices you made whilst in their grip…

An apology is the antidote to the most deadly spell. The words that set world’s in motion, though they can never be unspoken, having mattered so much that they terminated a timeline, may be healed and transformed into yet another reality by healing intent uttered through love.

Principle 3: I AM Human…. and if I never apologised for a role I played in your particular drama, consider this my healing spell.

Refocus On Terminated Timelines – How About Now?

Although I only managed an abridged oracle reading on Facebook this week due to the turbulent transfer of the website to a new permanent home, (it’s now arrived safely), if you’ve been keeping up you may have noticed it was very much about checking in with your internal compass.

This has been playing out for me over the last few days in a mentally exhausting trip down memory lane to a series of terminated timelines. By terminated timelines I mean things like abandoned projects, ideas, goals and even friendships and relationships that seemed to fall by the wayside as life shifted to and fro.

I haven’t been on a self-absorbed reminiscent mission or anything, in fact I’ve been consciously present with whatever I’m doing (mainly to get through the list and displace the overwhelm), but at the most random of moments an idea will pop in my head that is an idea that I benched years ago.

The universe seems to be saying “How about now?”

We often think of terminated timelines as failures, things that didn’t work, but I’m currently considering the the whole concept of Divine Will and Timing. What if those old hopes and dreams, ideas and inspirations weren’t failures? What if they were just in cold storage until Source deemed the time to be right?

While my particular compass is spinning back and forth through this week and I’m doing only what’s required of me with as much grace as is humanly possible, (except for my tai chi/qi gong lesson last night where I was decidedly aggressive and grace had nothing to do with it, leaving us all in fits of hysterics), I’m not in a state of trying to conceive anything new right now, rather to fulfil and complete what’s already present… clearing the decks so to speak. I’m aware of the herald of new energy arriving and the angels are showing me omens of that energy catching me up from the past. Something that wouldn’t have worked back then is shortly to present itself as an option now.

But there’s a problem with that… I’m a contrary little shit when it comes to being managed (see Monday’s insight), even if I’m being managed by God! My initial reaction to the thought of anyone or anything saying “not then but now” instantly created a rise of defiance in me: “well what if it’s not convenient for me right now?” “What if I don’t want it?” (At this point my less childish higher self is shaking her head in despair uttering “can’t you see God is attempting to deliver you a gift?”

So, having noticed the incoming energy and omens, having mentally exhausted myself trying to pin down the exact nature of the message whilst completing a gruelling schedule, having given my ego a good talking to about gratitude and acceptance, having kicked the shit out of some imaginary foe in what’s supposed to be a peaceful exercise, and having returned to the Grail for peace as is its purpose here’s what I found….

Principle 1: I AM God, so if He’s holding up the past as a new option then actually so am I.

Principle 2: I AM Detached, so if I let go of control over how and when whatever it is shows up I will not destroy today with mental exhaustion about tomorrow.

Principle 3: I AM Human, so I forgive myself for the temporary defiance and learn to laugh at my ego’s belief it has any power over Principle 1.

Principle 4: I AM Truth, so anyone’s opinions (including my own) about where I’ve been and what’s gone before has no bearing on who I am and where I am today.

Principle 5: I AM Liberated, so I will not allow my fear of losing what is, to inhibit my allowing what might be.

Principle 6: I AM Self-Full, so I choose to nurture my own well-being through any turbulence and change.

and finally…

Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted, so I have the capacity to allow the universe to bestow abundance in any form upon me and let it flow as it will… to, through and from me.

Now I’m ready to see how the story ends.

Monday(ish) Mind Manoeuvre – Imaginary Manager

Ridiculously late to be posting a Monday Mind Manoeuvre, in fact so much so that its almost a Tardy Tuesday Titbit but that’s somewhat the point of title…

My imaginary manager kicked in late last night when I took a look at my schedule for the week and felt a surge of overwhelm begin to take hold of me before the week had even begun. You see, its necessary for me to see ‘white space’ in my schedule. White space is the time I spend working on the things that are important to me, time I spend imagining greater spiritual truths, meditating, researching, daydreaming and quite often writing, but this week all I could see was commitment after commitment and no room for creativity.

Now the commitments were pleasant ones, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t thrive when I’m on someone else’s schedule and trying desperately to fit it all in. Do you ever find yourself stressing about letting people down? My imaginary manager had given over control to the expectations of others and more to the point, my own assumptions about what others were expecting, including thinking you were waiting on this little Grail insight, which of course is pure vanity and most of you didn’t notice it hadn’t happened!

So, stressed out, overwhelmed and wondering who to disappoint, I had a piss-poor night’s sleep and awoke even less capable of fulfilling my overtaxed schedule.

Who did I disappoint then?

Does it matter?

To be truly Self-Full, you must put your own wellbeing before any other priorities regardless of how urgent or important they may appear to be. If your imaginary manager is pushing you into overwhelm then it’s time to give him or her the boot and get to grips with what it really means to be the boss of you.

You are amazing, but your power lies in your ability to make good decisions… The best one you can make is YOU.

As it happens, I did everything on the schedule and moved the rest of the week around to fit it all in… (almost)… and to make Monday end even better the website is now on a stable new server and ready for you to sign up for free as a Seeker member to get a little extra from your Wholly Grail Quest.

Night night, God bless x
