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.

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.

Saturday Oracle – Beyond A Karmic Connection

The Universe may just be about to offer you the chance of a lifetime and it involves a very difficult choice: to leave behind the painful mistakes of yesterday and travel beyond a karmic connection, or to hold onto the bitterness and blame of situations long since relegated to the halls of history and forever be trapped by unforgiveness.

This week’s oracle is a little unusual in that it contains two challenge or chakra cards. This is because when selecting the cards by the force of the energy flowing through them, I couldn’t differentiate the level of power they each had. What was obvious to me though was the polarity of the energy within each… Principle 3: I AM Human acts as a back drop to the magnetic dance being performed by the two challengers. It’s underlying message is one of fallibility and forgiveness, it smacks of repetitive patterns and the free will fuck-ups that we as a species and as individuals are destined to make in the name of learning and evolution… and it takes some of us longer than others.

In the first instance I chose the chakra card that offered the frequency of pain. Simply because I understood that its polar opposite would offer relief and therefore the cure for the first. The card turned out to be the vibrant orange sacral chakra. Pulling this card with Principle 3 speaks of repetitive relationship mistakes and the pain of co-dependency. Like the Devil in a tarot deck, temptation, entrapment, emotional bondage and repetition have been feeding disappointment born of expectation up to a point but this karmic connection, call it a soul mate relationship if you will, has now played out its dark side and this karmic lesson is complete.

Here is where the polar opposite energy stream emanating from the emerald green of the heart chakra comes into play in a dynamic plot twist that offers a higher karmic lesson that you can choose to accept in this lifetime or roll over into the next. This is the lesson of unity.

We cannot separate the Principle from the cure and therefore the way through, should you choose to accept the new evolutionary mission now, is forgiveness.

Forgiveness in this case is not a word or even a sentiment, it requires the complete surrender of every painful memory or action that has passed between the divine masculine and divine feminine in the previous karmic cycle, not through dismissal but through acceptance. It requires ceremonial definition as an absolute ending to what was, in order to become what will be.

Unity requires, no, demands the execution of the old paradigm of competition as the now complementary (no longer opposing) forces align to face the next test together… a test that the universe has designed to be unachievable as individuals.

Of course you can choose to forego the new karmic adventure and carry on as you were. Stepping through this gateway, though agreed upon by all parties prior to incarnation, is still and always will be subject to free will.

In summary then: that was then, this is now… choose unity or choose separation but the old story has come to its natural end and the way of the heart is the doorway between levels of consciousness. If you choose to remain on your side of the portal your life will continue along its current trajectory, if you choose to step through you will ascend to a higher level of love than you have ever before experienced in your fragile human form.

I suspect the decision might take a little time… have a great week.
