May Day Edition – Soften Back Into Flow

If you feel like you have been pushing against your natural rhythm of late, this will come as a validation of the inner call of the divine feminine present within all things that requires us to soften back in to flow.

The divine masculine uses language like “control” and “drive;” it propels us into a world that feels rushed and hurried, contrived and competitive. You maybe thinking that when we are all still obviously held within the confines of lockdown that those things are far from our current state, but how many of you have felt the need to hustle to catch up or keep up? How many of you have felt the pressure to adapt or fall by the wayside?

Personally I hit a wall last week, after being in the hustle stage for too long and pushing just a little too far too fast. I felt the familiar tug of fatigue creeping in and the discomfort of misalignment from my soul’s voice. For me that spells the beginning of wandering off the path into the danger zone and more importantly away from my own bliss.

Stepping back into the nurturing embrace of the divine feminine leaves room for that language to transform from “control” into “allow” and from “drive” into “flow.” Neither of these states is wrong, or right for that matter, all serves. It just has a more cooperative, collaborative, co-creative feel to it. You become the craft that flows whilst the universe controls and drives the vessel.

When we soften back into flow, we leave room for the miracles that were meant for us. We begin to demonstrate trust in a power higher than our own and become the instructed rather than always having to be the instructor. We allow the path unfold naturally without needing to dictate which direction it takes.

I invite you to join me in setting an intention for the beautiful, bountiful, fertile feminine energy of Beltane, when the May Day “Empress” is ripe with potential, to focus on bliss, gratitude and what is already present within our lives. To be open and receptive to the flow of energy that is bringing with it even more blessings and fresh opportunities until such time as the energy once again requires us to drive.

This balance or dance between the be and the do, the yin and the yang, the receiving and the giving… this is the nature of all relationships and the essence of Grail Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted. Let your heart soften back into flow, then notice all the gifts the universe is holding in reserve for you come rushing in.

If you would like to learn more about the inner workings of The Grail and how to align with your own flow of abundance, consider becoming a Founder Member where I can support you on your path of becoming. Sign up for emails here if you’d like to be kept in the loop.

Happy May Day!

Weekly Oracle – Love Me Right Now

With this week’s intense Super Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo smashing its energy into us and Venus making eyes at Jupiter the Great Benevolent, I’m hardly surprised this combination is indicating that our inner-selves are demanding “love me right now!”

Principle 2: I AM Detached, awakens a part of us that is racing forwards to a time “when.” When I’m rich enough, thin enough, fit enough, when I have time enough, when I know enough… or worse still when I get back to how things used to be. It awakens you to the perfection of the moment however imperfect it might be. Now is all that exists for your soul and now is the time to embrace all the wonderful lessons and gifts that the emerald green heart chakra has to offer.

Love is the most important gift you can offer yourself this week, (well any week actually), it requires acceptance, forgiveness, tolerance and a true understanding of self-worth but more importantly it requires you to let go and stop withholding.

This week’s combination suggests this is a time where your propensity towards self-denial must be overcome regardless of all the made up excuses that override “why not now?” and “why not you?” The optimum time has arrived to give yourself all the things your soul has been crying out for, but most of all love.

Loving yourself and indeed allowing others to love you as you want to be loved is simply a matter of removing the obstacles you have put in place to protect you from your own fears, in this case around your readiness and the timing of the incoming energy.

“Love me right now” is the innocent cry of your inner child who doesn’t understand the constraints your other subconscious archetypes have placed around your ability to nurture yourself and be nurtured by others to the fullest potential in this and every moment.

Expect big questions and surprise situations this week where you may be faced with opportunities that require you to leap towards what your soul truly wants, but be wary of your conditioned response of saying no to life because you don’t believe you are ready for it or the timing seems a little off… The Universe doesn’t make mistakes with timing…. if your heart wants to say yes to love in all its forms then recognise that self-love means not allowing your head to overrule your feelings just because your calendar seems a bit full.

Prioritise your heart’s desire.

If your life is out of balance and you are putting your heart’s desires on hold, why not invest in a Transformative Grail Session with me?

Resisting A Rest (When The Universe Asks You To Surrender)

I’ve been exploring the Grail from a divine feminine perspective for a little while. The language I’ve used in the structure of the philosophy is very “Tally-ho! Let’s save the world” and divine masculine in flavour… not that it’s wrong in any way, the Principles are solid, sound and complete, they cover every aspect of healing what disturbs our inner peace and robs us of health, happiness and fulfilment… I just don’t want to be a Grail Knight anymore. Instead I’m finding that giving up the fight and accepting that my own cup fills faster when I surrender, when I acknowledge that protecting the sacred chalice as a Grail Priestess is far more in keeping with who I am at soul level and requires no banners to be carried and no battle cries, just daily practice and the sharing of its wisdom.

But we don’t live in that world do we?

This week I’ve met with such resistance from within and without, as structures begin to transform, and fear of losing control of and security from the known way has at times pushed me to grasp for the Knight’s sword and shield in an attempt to protect the boundaries of the realm I’ve built… but it is a realm I’ve made a sacred vow to leave in order to expand my inner temple, the home of my Grail. My soul demands leave, my ego is screaming “Stay, you don’t know what’s out there.”

When life threatens change, even positive change, the ego steps in to remind you of all the reasons why you should stay as you are. The small self covets the familiar… but the familiar only brings more of the same.

The universe has been asking me constantly to relax, to hang back, to observe and to let things unfold, but we live in a society where if you aren’t seen to be doing something productive – sell, sell, sell or market this, create that, (you get the picture), then you are either lazy or a failure. I’m neither, unless you count being a failure at being someone other than my true self. I’ve simply been resisting a rest and now it is time for me to give up the fight completely and surrender to the greater plan.

I’d like to create peace. But I already am peace (when I let go).

That’s what the Grail is. Inner peace, outer peace, something beautiful, somewhere beautiful. It already exists when you stop fighting it.

Don’t mistake peace for quiet or for solitude or even for the absence of chaos, it is none of those things (and yet can be found in all of them). Peace is a place found inside yourself regardless of external conditions when you are in union with your Divine origin (Principle 1: I AM God) and your physical nature is housed within your soul rather than trying to contain your soul within the limited boundaries of your mortal vessel.

Imagine that, not having to defend your soul within, but recognising that all along its been a massive uncontainable presence eternally protecting you.

When I woke up this morning I was in a state of “What can I do today to save myself from falling?”  Then I remembered a very poignant lesson given to me by Lao Tsu in meditation: he reminded me that gravity doesn’t exist here (in my psyche/meditation), so then how could I possibly be falling? Now I’m settled back in the inner temple knowing that the chaos is outside, the perceived loss and more importantly the fearful thoughts inciting me to action, are the opposite of peace, there is no beauty in their pursuit, the beauty comes from understanding that all serves and that what falls away is making room for new life to flourish.

If you would like help finding your way back into your inner temple, refilling or expanding your sacred chalice, healing or recovering from chaos or change, allowing change to happen, or simply discovering your inner Priestess, then let me know how I can help you.

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).

Bank Holiday Monday Mental Manoeuvre – Neutral Mind

Something inside me triggered when I did the oracle reading at the weekend. It was a sort of underlying anticipation of the outcome ready to be revealed. This feeling of uncertainty, excitement and a fierce need to know are all so familiar to me… and all so unproductive, uncomfortable and power draining. If like me, your inner control freak has had its interest peaked by the unfolding of a prediction or longed for hope or dream, then you  really need to get this.

Action taken to coerce, pressure, or hurry God’s timetable will result in delay, disappointment and dissatisfaction.

Applying a neutral mind however, allows a space for the universe to reveal the treasure it has amassed on your behalf without you narrowing the field of opportunities in how that delivery might take place. A neutral mind is an open mind, a fertile space for growth of knowledge and wisdom.

It’s your job to simply observe, listen, experience.

Principle 2: I AM Detached, is at the heart of this mental adjustment and involves stepping back from the game and watching how the next bit evolves… a bit like planting a seed. You give it soil, water and warm sunlight: optimum growing conditions, but ultimately it must grow of its own accord and on it’s own or God’s schedule. You have no control over how it eventually flowers or even if it will, but as you observe it break through the soil into the light you revel in the seedlings progress, maintain caring for it’s needs and provide for its survival but you cannot force it to grow nor give it a deadline.

This moment has information in it. This moment is teaching you something of great importance… is it patience? Is it acceptance? Perhaps it is teaching you to take your focus off the seedling and broaden your perspective to enjoy the whole garden?

Whatever it is that you are narrowly focusing on, whether it is a new relationship, a job opportunity, a potential project, etc, know that you can be happy now if you understand that this bit, “the in between bit,” “the neither here nor there bit” is every bit as much a part of your unfolding experience as the final reveal. You will have benefited from the journey whether the outcome is as you’d hoped or not.

It doesn’t matter how this turns out, I’m thoroughly enjoying witnessing the performance be it comedy or tragedy… it’s only drama if I’m overly invested. Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted, is love without strings… that means the seedling can grow or not as it chooses. It is loved, respected and appreciated anyway. We all get 10 out of 10 for just taking part whether we win, lose or draw.

Whatever form your seedling takes, leave room in your neutral mind for it to grow (if it wants to).

Saturday Oracle – The Dream Weaver

Grail Oracle 7Grail Oracle Indigo

Reality transforms from the inside out. Having been hand delivered a new set of tools from the Divine in the way of ideas, concepts and hopes, filtered through some fairly strange and intense dreams over the last few days, you can now start the process of implementation.

Internal Alchemy happens when you begin to transmute lower, heavy vibrations and stuck patterns, allowing life to follow your renewed intent towards a higher frequency… towards joy, health and abundance.

The Dream Weaver is someone who knits together that vision and prophesy of a better tomorrow with the fabric of reality simply by dreaming that new life into existence.

This week Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted meets the deep indigo of the brow chakra and offers you the opportunity to dream your new life into existence. This skill has rules though, to be open-hearted means to release all judgement of the way life shows up for you, to be accepting of whatever Spirit/Source sees fit to bestow in answer to your skilful dreaming or prayer… if you lock down the finer details you will restrict the level of experience God intends for you.

So let’s see: dream it, believe it, stay open to receive it, and most of all, however life shows up for you this week be grateful for it… you are The Dream Weaver: you create it as you go… co-create something amazing by allowing your heart and mind to sing in unison with the universal flow of abundance.

Irreconcilable, Inconceivable Even

We attempt an analytical approach to unfathomable situations mostly because it’s the rational mind’s function to compute. Acceptance and allowing are concepts native to the opposite side, the receptive side of the brain. Acceptance is easy when the calculation amounts to a satisfactory conclusion but when the requisite parts don’t add up then reconciliation, i.e. closure doesn’t come and getting your head or more precisely your left brain hemisphere (the logical side) around that is like getting a computer to stop calculating the unsolvable mathematical equation you asked it to do.

One of my favourite programmes growing up was “The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy” and I remember the super computer, affectionately named “Deep Thought” being given an equation to solve… one question kept it occupied for thousands of years and it just kept computing and calculating… the question: “What is the answer to life, the universe and everything?” Thousands if not millions of years later it came up with the answer: “42” ( good old Douglas Adams).

The incessant drive to find answers is an admirable trait of the human psyche but not necessarily one that’s conducive to inner peace. Not all questions have answers, that’s irreconcilable, inconceivable even to the logical mind but to the part of you that is Divine there never was any question… all is, was and ever more shall be exactly as it’s meant to be.

The logical mind, like a child will try to understand… “Why?” will be it’s favourite word and no explanation will quench its thirst until it hears what it wants to hear to make the jigsaw pieces fit together, until the loose ends are tied and the uncertainty has been stored in pretty little boxes. Have compassion for the child but interrupt the calculation with a new programme: “I have faith that God knows the answer and I have faith enough in myself to feel complete without it.” …or of course if that doesn’t work you could always just go with 42!
