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.

Happy May Day!

First Monday Challenge – Being Pregnant With Possibilities

Not only is it the first Monday of the month, it’s also May and that must mean it’s Beltane. Being pregnant with possibilities seems like an appropriate subject, May Day being a celebration of fertility and all that, but it’s also following on from the theme of the weekend’s oracle… turning worrying about problems to creating solutions.

Positivity takes practice. When you place focused intent, determination and gratitude at the forefront of your mental agenda you become a manifestation machine. The quantum do-da’s of the universe deem it can be no other way… you are that powerful.

So while we’re attempting a challenge lets up the ante and make it three.

1. Focus your mind and become a dream maker

2. Bolster your resolve with determined action

3. Gratefully acknowledge every blessing.

So what is focused intent? Do you ever say to yourself “I want that,” only to hear your thoughts say “That’s impossible, it’s never going to happen”? Well, that’s the opposite of focused intent. Your conscious mind is for the intended outcome but your subconscious mind, the bit running the outdated programme is running interference on the plan… you are creating from your fearful, wounded perspective an internal error or battle of wills.

Uninstalling the faulty app is not so easy when the device in question is your own psyche so you are going to have to learn to override the programme… that means being super vigilant for a time until it becomes automatic. When the negative mantra pipes up “who are you trying to kid?” You are going to have to make a statement to the little voice that’s heckling from the side lines: “I hear you my friend, and for a time I even believed you knew what you were talking about but here’s the thing, the only thing that stands between us and the goal is you, I’m done listening… that thing I want, its not just achievable, it actually wants me to have it, achieve it, conquer it. It’s routing for me so why aren’t you? So for now, if you shout, I’m gonna shout louder. If you say tom-ay-toe I’m going to yell tom-ar-toe and one thing’s for certain… we will not be calling the whole thing off!”

Determined action is about committing to the process and actually following through. It’s no good arguing with the heckler if you just sit there and do nothing, All those possibilities, all those roads that lead to Rome, (Rome being just an analogy for the goal you’ve chosen, obviously), adventures to be had down every one of them, basically means that it doesn’t matter which route you take as long as you don’t give up and turn back at the first sign of trouble, because that would be akin to admitting to your inner heckler “Okay buddy, you were right all along.” Not going to happen, this is a challenge remember?

Then there’s the biggy: gratitude.

Can you say thank you for the shitty stuff as well as the shiny stuff? All has purpose on the path you choose. Lessons come in countless forms and further down the road to your dream you will be able to look back and see the service that even the toughest excursion brought to you… patterns dancing in a perfect formation only truly visible from God’s eye view. If you detach from the drama just long enough to see the kaleidoscope of colour, you will know the true worth of every experience and gratitude will follow. To be grateful ahead of understanding takes real faith… and everyday it will be tested, but at the end of this leg of the journey…

You will transform from being pregnant with possibilities to giving birth to a miracle. Your miracle.

Go on, I challenge you to become a dream maker!
