Modus Operandi Part 5: Everything Else Is Just Gravy

As you’ve probably worked out by now if you’ve been reading this series: there are 7 parts to this Modus Operandi theory I’ve been exploring. Today it’s worth exploring under the hood of ownership, there’s what we actually need and then everything else is just gravy.

Coming from a perspective of lack we cling to everything in a desperate bid to create a sense of safety. From the perspective of competition we accumulate stuff as a representation of how well we’re doing. Each of these reasonings is fundamentally flawed and in opposition to other Grail Principles. For example: if you embrace Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted, you will place yourself in the flow of abundance, giving and receiving in equal measure and all of your needs are effortlessly met. If you embrace Principle 4: I AM Truth, your status in comparison to the next individual becomes obsolete as we understand that uniqueness is beyond comparison.

We accumulate more and more, building the prison of fear… not through having and appreciating beautiful, useful, life enhancing things but through the fear of losing them and the lengths we go to to maintain and keep them, to protect them which we lie to ourselves about how we are protecting ourselves, protecting our assets… but are they assets or are they liabilities?

I’m by no means anti material wealth, in fact I’d love a bigger house, nice car (and chauffeur), the latest gadgets, enormous bank balance and all the trimmings but what don’t want is the fear that comes with holding onto them…

So what do you keep telling yourself about what you have own and why you need to keep it? What is you Modus Operandi when it comes to justifying why you have to work so hard to make ends meet?

When you look at your bills do you instantly worry that you need to earn more to cover it… or do you recognise that you simply need to ‘own’ less and reduce stress, live free.

When you shift out of denial and get clear about what you actually need versus “everything else is just gravy” you let go of the attachment to all things, then lack, grasping, fearful behaviours and worry energy give way to peace, contentment, flow and abundance.

Start this weekend with a fearless inventory of your ‘must haves’ and your ‘nice to owns’, you’ll be amazed at how much pressure it takes off. Principle 5: I AM Liberated.

Getting To Grips With Ownership (And The Giving Of Surprise Gifts)

Continuing along the theme of abundance on this beautiful Summer Solstice, I was playing with the title and couldn’t help but notice the irony of it. Getting to grips with ownership actually has two deliberately loaded and unwise concepts at its core:

  1. The concept of ownership
  2. The act of gripping.

Taking you back to Monday’s insight “The Truth About Abundance,” at its core were two more productive ideas:

  1. The concept of allowing or acceptance
  2. The act of sharing.

The two things have a very different feel and the universe knows it.

If you want to increase your quota of anything, be it money and material wealth, love, friends, joy,  even ideas, then recognising that true ownership is universal and ultimately sits within the mind of God is the first step to putting yourself directly in the flow of more good stuff.

Take me for instance. I’ve long been grappling with whether or not to launch the membership aspect of this site. I’ve placed obstacle after obstacle in my path. Now some of that was due to gaps in my knowledge base about the technical aspects of building a site but mostly it was the constant indecision about how much I wanted to share about The Wholly Grail and my work… completely counter to my natural propensity towards sharing… but then I had never had anything taken from me before. Because I give so freely of my work and pretty much everything else I have, nobody has ever felt the need to take what’s mine when it’s always been so apparent that asking for it would yield such gifts and flow of generosity that underhanded tactics would prove unnecessary.

It yielded an ego response from me. That’s what ownership is: ego. It comes from a place of lack and a fear of not having enough. We live in a proprietary world where what’s yours is yours and what’s mine is my own. But more importantly and more accurately it almost stopped the flow. I almost abandoned the whole idea of not just the membership platform but of sharing Grail insights at all. Then something amazing happened…

Did I already mention where true inspiration comes from?

The Grail is an ancient concept that has been fed to many minds over many millennia straight from the mind of God. The uniqueness of The Wholly Grail is determined by the manner in which I interpret the universal flow of intelligence through the filter of my own experiences.

When I release my grip on ownership I begin to understand that though the copyright may remain with me, the information has been given to help mankind, and it was given to me, to flow through me, exactly because of my joy of sharing.

That being said… as a gift to the whole world on this the longest day of the year, Midsummer’s Day no less, I am opening up the first phase of the membership site later this afternoon. You can join as a ‘Seeker’ which is a FREE membership status and get delicious access to the basics of the secret Grail Mechanics that hide in plain site to throw you off the path, as well as 3 upcoming members only workshops with me… and first hand news of when the site will be open for full ‘Grail Knight’ membership and what that will provide to guide you along your path to inner peace, enlightenment and living an empowered life.

So to recap… God owns everything, if you grip onto it you kill it dead… if you let it go you let it flow… sharing is the key to receiving more… exchange of energy makes it grow faster… you don’t have to take someone else’s, yours is on its way if you allow it to come… and the membership site goes live this afternoon… got it? Good.

I’ve immensely enjoyed sharing… it’s Principle 7 in action… Please share this too if it resonates (you never know who might find The Wholly Grail an invaluable tool).

Monday Mind Manoeuvre – The Truth About Abundance

I hope you had an opportunity to read the Intuitive Chalice Oracle post from Saturday, it pointed at a week of taking care of our basic material needs with a view to smashing through our limiting poverty consciousness and beliefs about lack. Let’s instead then start to focus on the truth about abundance.

The Wholly Grail is all about flow and the peace we find in flow. You can take that concept and give it an image: the Grail Cup or Chalice… imagine that full of whatever you want…

Now a full cup is a beautiful thing, it represents plenty, but it is also a finite amount and the universe just doesn’t work that way. Everything in the universe is energy and energy is renewable, constantly changing form without diminishing and therefore infinite. That being said, if you stop the flow it will divert elsewhere.

When your cup is full, if you block the flow, like placing your hand over a wine glass when you’ve got enough, you cut off the abundance of the universe. Scarcity thinking will set in soon after as you take a sip from the glass and realise it’s contents are now depleting. You become protective of it, obsess about it, measure it, sip less regularly to make it last… basically begin to focus on how little you have instead of how free flowing life previously was.

The truth about abundance is that it requires 4 joyful actions on your part:

  1. Believe there is always more to come
  2. Be grateful for what you have already
  3. Share your gifts graciously
  4. Get out of the way of the flow

The flow, wants you to want it, the moment you say no, usually by disbelieving it’s possible, it feels rejected and diverts to those who play with it, love it, and have fun with it, welcoming abundance into their lives and the lives of those around them.

Transform your vision now into a Grail Cup or Chalice that is full but this time, instead of placing your hand over the rim to stop the flow, feel your excitement rise as it spills over and begins to spread, laugh with delight at its carefree spillage… it’s not wasteful, share the excess with everyone you love, those in need, those who welcome the flow and agree to abide by the four rules of abundance… now you can have fun with it together.

There is always more so have an abundant Monday (and everyday after that)!

Saturday Oracle – At The Root Of The Matter

I’ve been contemplating this combination for a while, doing my best to ignore the obvious connotations it infers. This week Principle 1: I AM God meets the blood red base chakra to get at the root of the matter.

Whilst preparing an ascension class earlier this week I was meditating with the Ascended Master Hilarion with regards to firstly the impending lesson and secondly my own life and current circumstances. He pointed out for me a simple image of a tree… admittedly this was an impressive specimen, obviously having been there an age, but it took some digging and jostling on his part to get me to recognise what the tree represented for me.

This combination represents the tree in many ways, with roots running deep and wide into a fertile earth and a trunk that was solid and strong, so strong that it’s still the most widely used building material in the world, and then there’s the branches, boughs and leaves reaching up towards the light.

Consider that the branches etc, are the things you reach for, the things you grow and the fruits you bare… the projects, services and gifts you give to the world in your own way no matter how small. The strong trunk would have to be your health… your mind, body and emotions in balance producing vitality, energy and that necessary strength. Not just physical strength but the strength or endurance to go the distance. Then we have those roots…

The base chakra, or root as its otherwise known is not so called for no reason.

In my vision the tree, though strong and magnificent was stood alone. In order to stand alone you must have very strong roots in deed. Roots are your basic needs. They have little to do with where you come from which is the association we often make but it is to do with what makes you feel safe.

Your security, safety, sense of belonging and your resources are all in question this week as the first Principle asks about worthiness. That, combined with material needs such as home or shelter, food, water, money etc, is spelling out a week where your attention is turned to survival and possibly fraught with unnecessary worries brought on by poverty consciousness, also known as lack mentality.

Your agenda is changing from what you produce to what you use and though reality is a good place to be (compounded by Neptune now in retrograde), your inability to recognise yourself as worthy and deserving of abundance is going to be your stumbling block.

Years ago my Auntie ran one of the busiest pubs in Sheffield city centre (before the pub trade died on its ass for various reasons). Every Christmas, the pub was so rammed that the bar team got overwhelmed… in those days they didn’t use posh epos cash registers, you were expected to do the maths… but my Auntie had a strategy for her team for just such occasions and its stuck with me for 30+ years: “Think of a number and double it!”

The strategy wasn’t exactly sound but the sentiment was, you see nobody blinked an eye, nobody was counting, everyone wanted what they had to sell (a good time and a party atmosphere more than a pint of bitter I might add), and nobody cared.

Principle 1 is about having faith that all your needs will be met because you are a spark of the divine and it is only your thoughts about what you want and whether you deserve it that keep you apart from it.

So in short: Your focus is on your material well-being, and rightly so as stuff no doubt needs taking care of… but if you focus on what you don’t have you’ll create more need, if you focus on what you do have you’ll create more abundance. If you recognise that you are worthy of more, more will be added, if you assume you don’t deserve to receive then the universe will not deliver!

Remember that tree… How long did it take to get so big and strong and magnificent… you’ve made it this far, push the roots deeper and remember its the ground around you that provides the nutrients but the leaves stretching high into the air need the light of God to do anything with the resources the roots absorb. Money is not separate from God, nothing is… and you are allowed to want more of it in your life… abundance is your birth right.

Left Behind

They say timing is everything, (whoever they are). Synchronicity, a long term buzz word of the spiritual community describes being in the right place at the right time for the right things to happen… The rest of the world might call this pure coincidence but this all depends on your beliefs about a bigger picture and a Divine plan guiding your life.

Personally, I choose to believe in something bigger, but being human as I am (Principle 3), this belief often gets caught up in fearful thinking that there won’t be enough… enough time, enough resources, enough love, enough anything… that I’ll be in the wrong place, I’ll miss the opportunity and somehow I’ll get left behind.

Lack mentality, another self-help, spiritual buzz word,  is the term used to describe this phenomenon of perceiving there will never be enough and its a catalyst for war, violence and hatred as we as a species scramble for the first place in the line… obviously I’m making reference to this Black Friday thing that everyone is talking about.

Just one day after Thanksgiving and we are suddenly as ungrateful as you can get in a “more, more, more” rush to get ahead just in case we miss out on something… something that we never actually wanted in the first place.

Despite my occasional tendencies towards forgetting that the universe has my share put aside for the exact moment when I need it, I’m giving this free-for-all a wide birth. I don’t remember the massive sales being a part of any nativity and the gifts that arrived in the stable didn’t come with a reduced sticker.

If I’m not in the right place at the right time for the right thing to happen then it was never the right place, the right time or the right event… synchronicity cannot be contrived, that defeats the object altogether. If you haven’t got it then you don’t need it, if you need it, the universe will deliver without you needing to fight for it.

Let this apply to all your wants in this moment and you will be truly blessed.

Saturday Oracle – Crisis of Faith

Grail Oracle Chalice

I have a confession to make…

On pulling The Sacred Chalice for the 3rd time in recent weeks I broke my own rules and pulled another combination. The Intuitive Chalice Oracle works by combining  one of The 7 Principles with one of the 7 colours of the rainbow pertaining to the energy centres of subtle body or chakras (as they vibrate at 3rd dimension), but there is an extra card, The Sacred Chalice which if selected, requires no additional card to complement it…

The crisis of faith I’m referring to in the title is less about the selection and more about me not believing our luck… I say ‘our’ luck because each week I pick a group combination meant for all of you reading this.

Last week I was excited because sweet love was calling in soul mate energy and this week looks set to continue the theme of abundant blessings coming your way… but…

…The Chalice, when it runneth over also demands that something be given up in order to make room. Along with the general flow of yesterday’s 999 numerological portal opening and the “completion” of cycles that it heralds, this powerful symbol represents that you are gaining confidence in your own wholeness and as a result others are beginning to mirror that back to you. Those who don’t will find that your magnetic pull on all that you desire will actually repel them.

You are starting to operate on a much higher frequency and as a result your circle of intimates is transforming as you invite in the new and the old and outworn gets washed away with the nectar of universal abundance.

Feelings of guilt will stir as will a tendency to try to hold on but you must not fight the gifts that this benevolent universe is bringing you for the sake of sentiment over the ones that have, over time become burdens.

The only crisis of faith going on is us merry lot attempting to suspend disbelief as the universe begins to deliver.

As for the second combination I pulled: Principle 1 with vibrant orange… you are worthy of the intimate relationship that’s heading your way (or if you’re in one, expect it to step up a notch and transform as you become more aware of your own worth).

May all your blessings have wings… x

Saturday Oracle – The Key

Grail Oracle 7Grail Oracle Green

Oh my! This is intense…

I’ve been talking about a portal, a threshold that must be crossed this week, but never have I personally been blessed by such an opportunity as is being extended by this combination.

As Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted embraces the emerald green of the heart chakra, the energy of love is multiplied by itself, and as love is an infinite stream that I can only describe as Source itself, imagine multiplying that energy (infinite by infinite) within your own life… The doorway that has opened is you, and you are being invited to live inside your own heart energy so that it can also be extended out to the whole world.

You’re on fire my darling and the world can’t help but notice.

Principle 7 is “The Key” to unlocking the prison door, as lack mentality becomes a thing of the past so too does your need to hold on so tightly to in this case, love itself. You are energetically calling out to your soul mate, new friends, teachers, rich men and poor men, princes/princessess and paupers alike… your invitation to the universe is magnetic and irresistible, but you are by no means vulnerable…

Love cannot be diminished. It can be denied and rejected but it cannot be diminished, that being said, don’t worry during this time of ultimate attraction that you will be hurt, your open-heartedness allows all to come and go, to flow at its own pace where you are not worried by its arrival or its passing… you are simply in love with its momentary presence within your life, (whether that moment is a second or a lifetime).

As this is a group reading I am breathing this energy out to you in hope that you are not blocking its blessings by closing off your own heart chakra… God has seen fit to bestow this gift and everything you have been asking for is on its way… all you have to do is stay open.

More next week… x

State of Discontent

Is there any wonder we walk through life constantly searching for the next big thing? If we’re honest with ourselves we are all seeking something: abundance, recognition, acceptance, happiness… we can give it a thousand or more names and none of them will quite fill the void, and each time we do achieve one of these things it seems fleetingly shallow. There’s a particularly good reason for this transient phenomenon and that reason is God.

Oh yes, let’s put the blame on God for our inability to be content… not quite what I mean. What I mean is simple: it’s God that we are searching for.

Only when you experience the Divine in any given circumstance do you actually feel fulfilled however temporarily, and temporary is exactly what that experience will be until you embrace the experience of God within you.

Now for those non-religious, finding-it-tough-to digest-the-word-God among you, you may be ready to dismiss this as mere hogwash but before you do, let me swap out the word “God” and transpose “Love” in it’s place. You see, it doesn’t matter what you call It, it’s the same thing (except it’s not actually a thing at all). The problem is you’re looking for it everywhere except in the one place where it resides: within you.

A state of discontent arises when you forget who you are, and who you are is Love. Stop looking for love and show it, stop asking for love and give it, stop waiting for love and be it… Love is a self generating force that multiplies by itself and of its own accord when you recognise that you have the power within you to heal all, including yourself just by asking “How can I best serve Love?”

Start now.

Principle 1: I AM God (or I AM Love).

The Fourth Hurdle – Unravelling Ownership

I really hope you’ve managed to catch the last few posts as they have been bridging the gap between you and a fully opened heart. We began by dispelling the time trap, looked at motives behind forgiveness and tested our need for approval, now let’s explore how material possessions entrap our daily focus.

‘Things’ are fun, aren’t they? Well aren’t they? They certainly should be, that’s why we have them, but what happens when they stop being fun?

It’d be fun to have a nice car, a big house, the latest mobile phone, an Italian designer suit… you list all the things it’d be fun to have if you like as a bit of an exercise, after all, we spend so much time these days talking about manifesting… the perfect job, the perfect partner, the perfect… nothing is perfect and in a universe built on balance everything has a positive and a negative attribute.

We are governed by the law of attraction sure, but we are also governed by the law of consequence or cause and effect… be sure you are willing to pay the toll for what it is that you want. Once it’s yours it’s also your responsibility.

Let’s take that perfect job for example… now you have it, can you do it? Can you put in the hours? Can you sacrifice the freedom? Can you sacrifice the family time?… now there’s a newcomer who shows promise and your position is threatened, what do you do, up the ante? Put in more hours? Compete? Are you trying to maintain your perfect job?… is it even your perfect job anymore?

We hold on for dear life to the things we worked hard for, put so much effort into and sacrificed to get but when is that sacrifice no longer in balance with the benefit?

Is it still a fun thing?

Investment is not the same as ownership. In this world, this life, you own nothing and you can take nothing with you into the next one so rather than own stuff that eventually owns you, your time, your energy, your focus, your resources, your health and your freedom, now is the perfect moment to start investing…

Invest in your health, your loved ones, your freedom and your fun and in the serving of humanity… everything else is a waste of your precious gifts. The fourth hurdle – unravelling ownership, once overcome, changes your perspective from greedy to gratitude and makes every ‘thing’ in the world shine brighter… you can taste it all as long as you’re willing to pay the ultimate price: everything you have, has a piece of you.

Principle 5: I AM Liberated.
