Conscious Connection Final Part – Dance With Me

Happy Valentine’s Day! Here is the final offering in the Conscious Connection series also known as The Wholly Grail’s Guide to relationships. If you missed the earlier parts to the series you can catch up with Part 1 here, Part 2 here and Part 3 here.

Principle 7. Dance with me, giving and receiving in equal measure the love that flows through us, amplified by our mutual intent to serve one another.

To truly open one’s heart to love, one must also be open to pain, to disappointment and to the apparent cruelty of the 3rd dimensional world, for in essence all is experience and all serves. But when one becomes a pure clear channel for unconditional love, having transcended the ego’s need for security and validation, having moved beyond the attachment of ownership and stepped fully into the role of the observer, when the door has finally closed on the transgressions of yesterday washed away by the clear waters of forgiveness and each stands in a place of empowerment fully ready to take responsibility for thier own well-being… there is nothing left to do but dance.

This is a state where passion, drama and angst have given way to something deeper…  peace, honour, humility, knowing. This is a place where words become irrelevant and connection is simply the flow between hearts, where letting go means to trust, to have faith and understanding, and where all is healed.

The dance occurs at soul level long before the ego ever learns the steps, and those lucky enough to move beyond the karmic residue and emotional baggage that must first be danced around before they may ever achieve unity and dance together… those, referred to as twin flames are given the keys to heaven here on earth: The Divine Marriage, true partnership. Yin and Yang locked in eternal embrace, spinning in infinity united by the only thing that is real in this universe: love.

So dance with me… dance until the karma gives way to love, until drama gives way to peace, until the darkness gives way to light and the Grail cup overflows into every aspect of existence… where love spills, new life grows.

This may have been a poetic look at relationships through the Principles of The Grail but if you would like a more comprehensive look at the dynamics of your relationships, whether romantic or otherwise then take advantage of my Valentine Offer throughout February.

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.

Saturday Oracle – Like The Wind Blows

Without boundaries, without shackles. Love like the wind blows.

Intense energy arriving this week as we are greeted by this dynamic duo of Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted, with an illumined orange sacral chakra. Unmistakably a sacred partnership that is asking each party to remove all walls and obstacles to let love love blossom.

This week you may find yourself in a very raw vulnerable state as you are asked to open wide all doors and windows to your heart allowing the energy of love to blow through, just like the wind.

As we know all too well of late, wind can be fierce and uncompromising, destroying lives and families… but it can also be soft and gentle bringing fresh air into stagnant places, thoughts, ideas and regimes. Love is the same. Where there are no obstacles and no expectations the intensity is irrelevant, only resistance creates damage. Love is a benign force, it has no agenda, it’s only intention is to move like the wind blows: spread, and be shared, neither grasped at nor rejected, no increase nor depletion… there cannot be more or less love, only the speed and direction of flow increases or slows down in relation to your ability to receive and transmit seems to amplify the universal elixir.

As you enter this week do so understanding that another is offering you love (directing the flow towards you). It may not arrive in the form you hoped for, but it is in no way any less of a gift than in any other form. You have a choice to gratefully and graciously receive and transmit the life giving, transformative juice or you can close the windows and doors to your heart space and be battered by the impact caused by obstruction… that’s right, rejecting love causes pain.

I’m not suggesting you forget your discernment and encourage unwanted advances but that isn’t what this week is predicting. No encouragement is necessary for the genuine sacred union of souls indicated by this combination.

However love shows up for you this week, learning to give and receive in equal measure will bring positive change into your life, relationships, communication and creativity.

Saturday Oracle – Pure Connection

This combination feels familiar and although it has an overall beautiful appearance to it, something within me has been putting off delivering its message today… That’s the problem: delivering a message means complete surrender to the possibility that nothing will ever be the same again.

As Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted, cosies up to the vibrant orange sacral chakra softening its abrasive desire and encouraging pure connection, the vulnerability involved in that type of interaction reaches it zenith and can become unbearable for those not ready to give up control to another being.

Human relationships excel to another dimension this week beginning with an admission. Out there on a limb hoping that showing your hand and your feelings will not make you a prime target for rejection or ridicule is the only place where another can meet you half way. Risking your most sensitive nature for the promise of this pure connection is not new to you, but having been left there hanging in the past or worse, met there only to be later discarded when you were already all-in has made you wary of whether the risk is worth taking at all… but you know it is.

With the new moon total eclipse in Leo on Monday and six retrograde planets until Thursday you would be forgiven for feeling that level of uncertainty, but the synchronicity of the heavens is pushing you past the finish line in more than one area of your life towards a completely new storyline… and nothing quite transforms the story of your life like the introduction of a new co-star.

Put desire to one side for a moment and instead look at this connection as something deeper and more fundamental, once the initial admission is over this connection is soul level, familial, comfortable… not in an old slipper kind of way but in a missing piece kind of way. As it is based on Principle 7 where giving and receiving are completely balanced, it also has a sense of the traditional, where roles are definitive, respected and appreciated, cooperation and companionship, support and encouragement form the basis and foundation for divine union. This is a connection as old as time, conducted between the realms of the physical and the non-physical where a psychic extra-sensory form of communication exists.

People usually only dream of this kind of love… it is possible… but only if one or both are willing to step out on that limb, drop the defences and declare what hides inside the heart.

It probably won’t feel like news… each is fully aware on a higher level… each is simply waiting for the other to overcome fear, overcome history, overcome personal baggage and the reasons why not, replacing the detritus with the cleansing breath of faith.

Archangel Chamuel: the Angel of Destiny has lined you up with this missing piece of your soul’s mission and is waiting patiently for you to choose reunification. Ask him for help, courage and opportunity this week.

If your Mr or Mrs Right, hasn’t yet made an appearance, now is the time for you to call out for your soul mate… you can be sure that they too are calling out for you. Chamuel will help if you ask.

Amplification Of Passion – Meet Me In My Wholeness

Finding out who you are is the first step in creating the life and love that you really want. Up until the point of accepting that prior to understanding your true nature you are simply seeking to heal something you believe is missing, you will always seek out a vibrational match to the perceived broken aspect of self.

Basically put, whilst your are trying to fill a void, you’ll attract someone or something that reflects and reinforces that void within you.

Damn!

Once you let go of the need to be other than you are… broken, whole, perfect, imperfect… it’s all relative and a matter of perception, you begin to accept that what makes you different is what makes you who you are. In this state of self-acceptance, you begin to exude new levels of purity and authenticity that draw towards you a plethora of miracles including your reflection in the purity of others.

If others will meet me in my wholeness, we become the amplification of passion. Let me explain:

Imagine that your heart centre is a light-filled vessel, say a Grail cup. Now as you are eliminating light from this heart chakra, filled, fuelled and overflowing divine purity to all who draw near, their heart centre’s are reflecting back that divine purity and because they are already filled, fuelled and overflowing, the light is increasing and creating something new that can be shared out further. Everyone is sharing what they have to give, nobody is taking what isn’t needed.

Take instead a depleted, say half full heart chakra. It craves love so it shines what it has at whatever comes close… as the law of attraction demands that like attracts like, potentially that is another half full heart chakra that needs to be further filled. (Are you still with me)? “I’ll take that, thank you very much.” Says the approaching half-hearted chakra… The original waiting now to receive something in return to fill the depleted vessel that just gave what it had away as a bargaining chip.

I just said yesterday to a dear friend: “two broken people do not make a whole one.” Find your authentic wholeness and use it to help another find it within themselves (if they will it), then the two of you will amplify the light for others making you, as a team, a force to be reckoned with.

So how do you find your inner light? Read my last couple of posts, it’s a start.

Regardless of what you may currently believe, the only thing standing between you and everything you have ever wanted is you… and your opinion of how worthy you are of having it… but trust me when I say that if it’s for your highest good then it’s already yours.

Saturday Oracle – Entering Blissful Partnership

The energy coming from the oracle cards was excruciating, they were screaming “pick me, pick me!” After a week of high emotion, full moon shenanigans and rebellious tendencies, I’d simmered down enough not to argue with them. I made a promise when I began doing these oracle forecasts that I would honour whatever popped up regardless of how uncomfortable the combinations… the first set is the right set, no manipulating results to suit agendas, what would be the point?

This week is no exception as Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted partners literally with the vibrant orange sacral chakra… this is the combination of Divine or Sacred Marriage.

Divine Marriage is described in many ways and often as an alchemical balance of the masculine and feminine principles within, but make no mistake, this is not a metaphorical marriage, this is the combination of entering into or the deepening of an intimate relationship.

Entering into blissful partnership at least speaks to the beautiful nature of this affair of the mind, body and soul, as Principle 7 is the card of balanced giving and receiving. It holds within its remit the essence of unconditional love which allows each partner to be who they are without needing to hide a part of themselves in order to be accepted. This balance and the nurturing of individuality means that the heart flame within each burns brighter as a result of the union.

The sacral chakra is the sexual centre of the energy system and the creative energy here can be possessive meaning that it forms attachments easier and faster than any other chakra. Supported by Principle 7 however, those attachments are healthy and mutual.

So what exactly can we expect?

Where there has been separation, there will now be union. Where there has been uncertainty, there will now be reassurance. Where there has been divergent interests and agendas there will now be alignment. If you are in a relationship this is a week where you will make commitments to each other and feel safe enough to express love in all its forms and safe enough to receive love in all its forms. If you are not yet in a relationship and are looking to connect with a soul mate or twin flame, this combination speaks to your readiness to welcome the energy of romantic love into your life.

Fertility is also a factor here as the sacral energy is bursting with the spark of life ready to transform into a roaring fire, whether that’s the creation of a new idea, project or actual baby remains to be seen but you can be sure that the union between you and another will be a fruitful one one way or another.

Be careful not to throw this energy away on meaningless encounters, such dalliances will lead you to disappointment. Only real love is worthy of you now.

Be open, be ready.

A Grail Knight’s Guide To Handling A Workaholic

Around two thousand and odd years ago there purportedly lived a man who by all intents and purposes changed the face of spirituality forever. So pivotal was his role that millennia later we still speak his name. This man was a workaholic. He was known to be a humble healer and a teacher of spiritual truths. He lived, ate, breathed and slept his mission because it was also his passion and his purpose… but this simple, gentle soul had a secret…

To maintain the pace, power and purity of the word he needed help, he knew this. Though the mission was his and his alone he understood that no man stands as an island and that others had a mission that corresponded with his own. This wise and humble sage, eternally open to the blessings and guidance of an ever loving Source, knew that part of his mission here on earth was to respect that all human life had a role to play and that he would be led to those who would be vital to his own journey… carefully he chose 12 worthy individuals and the world would remember them as disciples.

But there was another, a 13th. In a world that still shunned half the population he knew this to be a risky strategy but he was guided by the yearnings of his heart that this one knew. She knew the truth of his teachings before he uttered them for she too had a direct channel to an ever loving Creator. For the sake of the story let’s call her Mary.

Now, Mary was a beautiful flower and she understood that she distracted him from his work but this distraction was guided and gifted from heaven for it was his job to educate the world how to create that same heaven here on earth, but her job was to show him that he didn’t have to sacrifice for it… The sacrifice would come soon enough and heaven on earth was for his benefit too.

The humble sage soon learned to alternate healing and teaching the world with private time with his family, breaking bread in private juxtaposed with feeding the five thousand… And Mary, she healed him as he healed them…

Had it not been so, had he not allowed Mary to become his confidante, his lover, his wife; had he not understood that his mission included her, he would have died alone on that cross, the twelve having denied him thrice before the cock crowed and having fallen asleep in that garden in his darkest hour when he needed them most…

His work not yet complete, without her to cleanse and anoint his beautiful body laying him to rest, who then would he have appeared to upon his ascension? Those who denied him, disbelieving her?

Enough of this ancient story for now except to say this: when you understand your purpose and you become emblazoned with a passion for the Divine-dealt reason for your existence, recognise that God sends to you all the requisite pieces and people to aid the task. To this gentle sage He sent a Mary, she never questioned his journey, she walked with him every step of the way and carried on his teaching way beyond. Her passion was the Christ, but when he needed sleep she made him rest, when he needed sustenance she fed him (even if he protested: “Petal, I’m in the middle of the sermon on the mount” to which she merely smiled and replied “Jesus, will you shut up and eat” or words to that effect). When he was sick she nursed him, when he needed a sounding board, she listened… and when he needed love…

A Grail Knight’s guide to handling a workaholic begins with understanding the mission, followed by being as passionate about the end product as the one working, finding a way to support them through it whilst maintaining a Self-Full lifestyle and finally being willing to sacrifice… everything except for each other.

God has a plan and whether you are The Messiah or his Mary, desire will tell you where He thinks your focus should lie and don’t presume to know His reasons.

Principle 1: I AM God

Principle 4: I AM Truth

Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted

But most of all Principle 6: Isn’t it time you let someone take care of you?

Betrayed and Exposed

Divine marriage is the union of two apparently opposite forces joining to create a much greater, balanced and neutral entity. Some might describe it as yin and yang, some might embrace the idea of the god and the goddess, for many it is the meeting and commitment of soul mates that personify the quality of the sacred dance. Divine marriage is essential for each of us as we walk a conscious Grail path, but don’t assume that this involves another human being.

My writing, indeed my teaching in general is fuelled by my personal experience and journey, my own learning, seeking and often vulnerability are as I understand it, my greatest assets, but of late it has been tinged with generalities and has taken a less intimate tone… there’s a really good reason for that…

Divine marriage is sacrosanct. In a partnership, the most intimate details of your hopes, dreams, fears and fantasies are laid bare for the other party to embrace and the level of trust involved is the difference between feeling safe, loved and cared for or feeling betrayed and exposed. I’ve entered into a Divine marriage with my soul in order to know me better, in order to heal what holds me apart from the overflowing cup that is my Grail and that requires me to honour my soul’s vulnerabilities or rather it requires my soul to honour my ego’s vulnerabilities as my soul is my most invulnerable part and cannot be diminished by anyone’s actions including my own.

The most significant thing that has become apparent as a result of this union, is that I undertook the commitment in order to lead me to the Grail but the Grail was never lost, it was never out of my reach and very second my ego allowed my soul to speak and found the only words my soul knew how to say were: “I love you, welcome home” suddenly the cup overflowed and those words were all I needed.
