Will You Choose Conflict Or Cooperation?

I’m tired. I know it’s a strange way to start a post but it’s indicative of the point we all get to when the struggle becomes so unbearable we have to acknowledge, not that we can’t go on in the same manner, but that we don’t want to. This is the point where you have to ask: will you choose conflict or cooperation?

Last week you may recall that the Sacred Chalice Oracle offered advice regarding the impending possibility of someone pushing your buttons… it seems that that was taken as an invitation, challenge or instruction by an acquaintance of mine. Honouring my own wounding and attempting to understand his, instead of throwing the rattle out of the pram I when my boundaries were obviously violated, I simply asked if he would like to share the burden of responsibility for what he was attempting to take. I offered to share… to cooperate for the greater good. I’m waiting on a response at present with no expectations either way.

When we are unaware of the true motives of other people’s behaviour towards us, all we can do is open our hearts to them and carry on regardless, but I absolutely refuse to get into conflict over something quite so valuable… to everybody.

Let me tell you about The Wholly Grail...

It cannot be taken from you, you must give it away. If you give it freely it will always be yours. if you are unaware you are giving it away, when you realise it’s gone you will need to fight to take it back… because it is you power.

The truth is that the Grail is a state of inner peace and empowerment that becomes infectious when you allow others to understand it’s capacity to heal. It is abundant and never in short supply and therefore those who seek to take it from you have not yet grasped that they have access to their own.

So when I say I’m tired, it is only that I am at last reconciled with the fact that my light shines so bright that it is blinding to some, so much so that they seek to usurp it, to dim it or to extinguish it altogether, and I fought to keep on glowing, not realising that the effort on my part to resist the onslaught was the very thing that ran down my divine generator… and so I’m tired of resistance.

If I shine on you you are blessed. What I give freely you may share. The light from this candle intensifies with each new flame it ignites and each new flame has the capacity to light a thousand more…  are you prepared to start a fire?

I choose cooperation but I cannot cooperate by myself.

So to all of you I ask, what will you give freely to create a new paradigm of sharing, cooperation or connectedness? Or what will you withhold in the name of self preservation, aggrandizement and conflict?

If I have something you need, all you need do is ask. If you have something that will benefit another, now is the time to offer. Principles 1 and 7.

Monday Mind Manoeuvre – Just Below The Surface

There is something I’m not seeing at the moment. I’m aware of it on the subtlest level like it’s hidden just below the surface or skulking about just outside the door of my perception, but the more I try to see or even listen for evidence of its existence the more elusive it becomes. It’s a bit like my guides and angels are whispering amongst themselves and stop whenever I enter the room or start paying attention. This is what happens when you are about to leap from one stepping stone to another (but the next stepping stone is as yet unclear).

It isn’t psychic paranoia as you might think, it’s just the energy of the universe lining up opportunities and options and trying to juggle the inner workings of manifestation process while attempting to keep up with your ever changing set of criteria. Think of it like this…

It’s Christmas Eve and Santa is doing his best to get your order delivered but the elves can’t read your list because you’ve scribbled out and rewritten it so many times. They are confused about what to put in the sack and just when they think they have it right and Santa gets all the way down your chimney, just as he is bending to place the package under the tree the elves radio in with a message saying you just sent in a different order in the form of a wish and the list has automatically updated… “abort mission, repeat, abort mission.”

That almost imperceptible whispering you think is happening is actually the universe’s version of Santa standing in the next room on the radio to head quarters trying to work out whether the package can be salvaged or if he needs to return to base to start on the new order.

Yes I know it’s a bit early for Christmas analogies but it was the only one that seemed to fit.

My awareness of that “something” going on is simply an internal request to get clear, to be observant, not just of my environment and the gifts being delivered but more importantly the thoughts going on within. Every thought creates a prayer field: the energy that emanates from you at the frequency that attracts its manifest likeness. In order to get Santa (or whatever form the delivery service takes) to deliver what you want or the help you need to achieve it, you must be absolutely clear about what you are asking for.

My problem is that in the midst of uncertainty I’m asking for safety and security whilst asking for adventure at the same time, trying to rebuild the fallen Tower whilst hoping for the Knight of Wands to whisk me off into the sunset, donning the mantle of the Queen of Pentacles whilst sitting on the throne of the High Priestess. Perceived stability over unprecedented risk.

If you are trying to perfect your prayer field, the only way is to get real still for little while, empty yourself of all the requests and preferences and instead allow the voice deep inside you, that part of you that is Source, who is also Santa’s boss, (Principle 1 : I AM God), to help you create a vision for your life that lives up to your Divine Blueprint, regardless of the how and the when. Meditate upon that vision everyday until it becomes so emblazoned within your brow chakra that every action you or the universe takes leads you closer to it…

That feeling that something’s just below the surface is an indicator that clarity needs to be gained and choices need to be made. (Principle 4: I AM Truth). Your cosmic support team are awaiting instructions.

Happy Monday… xxx

 

Saturday Oracle – Effortless Exchange Of Energy

Receptivity is a vulnerable state for many, that stems somewhat from a sense of being unworthy of the gift being bestowed or of the apparent generosity of the being that delivers the gift on the universe’s behalf, but this is a week for the effortless exchange of energy as the universe serves up the very thing that provides for your needs.

Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted, meets the red base chakra in this week’s combination offering you a miracle… The form it takes depends on what you most need for your physical protection at this time. Don’t misunderstand me, you are not in any danger, the universe has always been one step ahead of you, but your lower mind has conjured up evidence of some threat or other that often accompanies great change.

As the base chakra tends to your safety, security, health and material wealth, this gift will offer you relief where one of these areas feels uncertain. It may be a physical offer of help from another, advice or the delivery of, to or from what you need.

Where this Principle would normally have you questioning whether to take the gift on offer, there is a huge difference between want and need. This is a need. The effortless exchange of energy comes as you don’t think twice before gratefully accepting the benevolence coming your way in the exact form you need it, as if you were dying of thirst in a desert and the universe provided a well right before you couldn’t possibly take another step. When the need is great, acceptance is without question.

You spent last week being honest about what your needs are… this is the week to get them met.

Wishing you a permanent reprieve from whatever ails you.

More next week… x

Monday Mind Manoeuvre – Making Miracles

Having entered a massive shift in my life where all external things have become temporarily unstable and unfamiliar (not to mention incredibly stressful), I thought I would take a moment before throwing myself back into the fray to remind each of us that every day has the potential for making miracles happen.

It takes a very special kind of connection: a partnership with the Divine, to pull off the kind of magic that can sweep you up in a whirlwind and deliver you safely into a new situation where the air is clearer, the opportunities are riper and the music of your life syncs in harmony with the symphony of the universal flow… it’s called faith.

Though this is a shorter than usual post, I took writing  it as my own moment to check in with that relationship, with my guidance and my magical mentors and I’m off now to start making miracles of my own.

Today I pray you a crystal clear connection and may you be guided to where your magic is strongest.

Principles 1 & 7.

Dialling Home To Heaven – Reverence in Meditation

Following on from the appearance of The Sacred Chalice in the Oracle at the weekend I thought it prudent to inject a little reverence into this week’s posts. I hope you enjoyed Monday’s insight and that the angelic grace visualisation helped to settle any disturbance you may be feeling as a result of the current energy flow.

Reverence is something that gets lost when you have fun with spirituality and you should definitely have fun with it. Life is supposed to be fun and God, The Creator, Source, Tao, whatever you want to call Him/Her/It isn’t judging you for it… you will not be smited for calling The Almighty “Big G” as I do, nor will the angels forsake you because you meditate whilst sat on the loo!

When things get a little scary though, when your world tilts slightly and you lose perspective and connection due to the internal mess that comes with change, that’s when reverence, applied sincerely, is like dialling home to heaven.

Sacred practice is a part of living a spiritual life: meditation or prayer for example, daily communication with your higher power is essential for maintaining a healthy spirit… for the most part it’s like calling mum and dad from your travels, laughing, joking, just checking in, but applying reverence is like turning up at the door and saying softly “Mum, Dad, we need to talk. I’m in trouble and I need help.”

The atmosphere instantly changes and God seems to stop what He’s doing for just a moment (and mum’s no longer washing up whilst your chatting, she’s sat at the table giving you all her attention, dad’s put down the paper and is staring intently into your eyes watching for signs of what’s happening in your mind)… everybody is paying attention… because you are treating this moment with a sacred trust and a sense of importance.

God’s always listening. He’d much prefer you to be happy, tuned in to the part of you that is Him, knowing you’ve got this, following your bliss and just checking in to say ” Hi, everything is flowing smoothly” but when you shift gear and really dial in… when reverence replaces revelling, that’s when you come home and recognise you are loved, and your Divine Parent will always be there to lift you up, bail you out and put you back on your playful path.

Light a candle, take a moment… and start dialling home to heaven.

Detach, Define and Dance

Today apparently is the exact centre of the year with the same number of days behind us as there are in front. It’s as though we’ve reached a pivotal point, literally, a balance point or natural turn. Usually that turn occurs on the solstice but as we use a calendar that merely tips a nod to the natural solstices and equinoxes and have done for centuries, our internal clocks are somewhat misaligned. No matter, we work with what we’ve got.

The days leading up to this non-celebrated event have been poignant for me as I’ve subconsciously reset my own personal targets and shifted gear to ensure I’m on track with personal goals and agendas… they in fact have been refined or even redefined as I’ve set about questioning the “why” in each case. The why is the platform on which we build a dream, it’s the driving force behind every action and its the compass keeping us on track. My why has shifted after some deep internal work, liberating me from a multitude of doubts and fears, my “I want this” has become “If God wants it for me it will come to pass.” The results have been miraculous so far, at least in my whole attitude and level of internal peace… God, it seems, has gone all out to get me what I want just simply because I let Him.

If you’ve read some of “the pear” posts over the last week you’ll know that my life goal has been waved in front of my eyes for me to turn my attention to bringing it to fruition now, and when life reminds you you have a looming deadline, like hitting the halfway point in the year when your natural tendency is think “Shit! The year’s half done,” then internal panic could set in pretty darn quickly. Negative statements like: I’m never gonna achieve this, could cripple you into inaction and even depression if you allow the fear to creep in but there’s an alternative that involves recognising that you just cannot do this alone…

Letting go and letting God is a terrifying notion when you’re a control freak but once you actually get the hang of Principle 2: I AM Detached, the whole process becomes a dance with angels as they lift you up and carry you to each desired check point along the road to the goal. When you open up a dialog with Source energy and confirm your wish and your why, if the wish is for your highest good and the why is a noble one then your path will be filled with synchronicities that make you wonder why you ever doubted in the first place…. you were just focused in the wrong direction.

In the last couple of weeks, life has had its ups and downs, my home is in turmoil with building work going on, my work schedule has gone to pot along with it, but do you know what? I feel content that all that is happening around me but none of it is happening to me…. I AM Detached. My plans are moving along at a steady pace and fun is happening as standard.

The year may be half over, but there’s still half left… detach, define and dance your way with angels to your desired destination.

God’s in charge of the journey… so let Him be.

Distant Echoes

Every morning I call in the angels to help guide me through the day whether I feel I need help or not. This morning Archangel Azrael asked me “Will you let us help you today?” I replied: “I will always let you help me but today I’m unsure what it is I need help with.” Azrael’s response was one I had not expected, he simply said “Are you at peace?”

It’s been a strange morning, I awoke early and turned over to go back to sleep. The feeling was not one of depression believing I had nothing to get up for, it was one of gratitude that today I had the opportunity to have a lie in. My first thought upon waking was a random memory of a summer day, a yellow tricycle that by today’s standards would be considered a health and safety hazard, psychedelic hotpants and legs that went on forever sporting scuffed knees, bare feet on weather-smoothed York stone flags… and I remember thinking that was almost 40 years ago, but I had no clue what triggered the memory other than the carefree pure innocent delight of being without concern for anything other than now and not needing to….

“Are you at peace?”

I searched myself for the answer. I feel calm, I thought; I’m not missing anything, other than the usual things that life propels you towards but even those seem little less than distant echoes for now; am I at peace?

I don’t feel un-peaceful (if that’s even a word), but if I search myself, I don’t feel peaceful either…

I found the words to answer Azrael, “I feel lost.”

“Then will you let us help you?”

“Is it not ok to feel lost? I’m not afraid here, I’m not uncomfortable, I see no reason to shift in any direction… I am always grateful for your assistance and I will never turn it down, but what is it I require assistance with?”

“Are you at peace?”

Sometimes it takes a higher perspective to elevate the feeling from detachment to contentment, from contentment to peace and from being lost to feeling joy in the centre of exactly nowhere. Nowhere, everywhere, right here, right now.

Principle 2: I AM Detached

May angels help you find your peace.
