Knock Three Times

Considering I work for spirit and everything I do revolves around my spiritual beliefs and practices whether for myself or for others, I really am the biggest sceptic I know. I spend an inordinate amount of time testing God (and Him testing me). It’s a game and it keeps things fun even when life doesn’t appear that way.

Have you ever seen those ridiculous parodies of spooky movies where some idiot would walk into the haunted house and scares themselves half to death saying “Is anybody there?” There was always a response but the character would dismiss it as pure coincidence and then go on to say “Knock three times if that was you.”

To be fair I don’t actually ask God to knock three times because I would proper shit myself if I heard a bang or three, what I do tend to do though is ask that when God responds to my prayer in whatever way He sees fit, that He does so by giving me the same answer three times in three unique ways from three different sources.

Usually within 24 hours I’ve had confirmation of exactly what I needed to know or hear in some very creative ways by some equally ingenious delivery methods. You see, the universe is constantly talking to you and only too happy to play hide and seek. You may be of the opinion that I’m being somewhat disrespectful of The Almighty, but The Divine really is the most playful force there is, and when you say “Big G, let’s play a game” then Big G is eager to get started.

Recently I’ve been indulging my disbelief with regards to the responses I’ve been getting. Not that I’ve missed the obvious synchronicities but more because I’ve been questioning whether or not the messages were actually aimed at me. It’s a Principle 1 thing. It throws you into the “Nah… surely that was for someone else?” “Why me?” and “Who the heck am I to be getting a message straight from the Source?” way of thinking. 

Principle 1: I AM God, is centred around the idea of worthiness and intellectually if you’re reading this then chances are you get it that you are just as important as the next guy and God doesn’t play favourites… but that in itself throws up the question that if He doesn’t play favourites then why is He talking to me… the short answer is because you are listening, watching, observing, playing the game.

Today is as good a day as any… Ask a small question. Ask a big question. Ask any question you like and then play the game with God.

My question today is how do I transform my greatest fantasy into a physical reality? So if you are listening, reading, paying attention… Knock three times (3 separate responses in 3 creative ways from 3 unique sources)… aaaaand Go!

Weekly Oracle – Fill Up Then Spill Over

Woohoo! It’s back! Normally when I see the Sacred Chalice come out of the pack I have an “Oh No!” moment, but not this week. This week I was fist pumping and thinking “yeah, bring it on,” knowing that when you fill up then spill over the contents of the cup, even the trickiest of weeks can be truly magical.

It’s all about perspective this week as things are set to shift dramatically. For some of us that will mean miracles, for others it might seem like the rug is being pulled out from underneath you and knocking you squarely on your arse! You get to choose how you respond to the surprises in store.

I’m expecting things to go either way… hedging my bets if you like, I figure that landing on my feet is something to celebrate but landing on my arse is something I can giggle about if I get over myself… nobody’s watching anyway and even if they are, laughing at yourself is an excellent way to lighten the intensity of transformation.

That’s what is really going on this week, transformation.

The proverbial cup is symbolic of your vitality levels and your capacity for self-love, when the cup is empty you have nothing to give and nothing to smile about. When it’s full, anything that spills over you get to share with the world.

You can’t expect anyone else to fill that cup for you so if you are feeling a little on the empty side then now is the moment to reclaim all the bits of you that you have given away, draw back your power from all lifetimes, all timelines, all dimensions and all beings that would seek to drain you. They have Sacred Chalice’s of their own and are responsible for their own healing journey… that’s the true meaning of Principle 6: I AM Self-Full.

The 7 Principles of The Wholly Grail are designed to centre you in peace, reclaim your essential nature and your power inspire of external pressures and circumstances, so whatever is shifting for you this week, YOUR Grail is your is your wellspring of energy to ride the wave.

Here’s wishing you an amazing Solstice Week ahead (even if you do spend it arse over tit)!… x

 

Weekly Oracle – Unapologetically You

The expected, socially recognisable and acceptable version of you might be brought into question this week when you embrace your innate sexuality and sensuality in a drive to become more balanced between mind, body and spirit.

This shift is neither planned nor in any way contrived but instead flows from a natural healing of the rift between who you are and who the world assumes you to be, between the thought-led, over-analysing, living from the neck up version of you to the instinctual, vital, physical being that shifts fully into the realm of having a human experience.

Principle 3: I AM Human, is the aspect of The Wholly Grail that deals with forgiveness for the seemingly unacceptable traits and behaviours that we as human beings often display, but this is a surface representation of a much deeper truth held within this Principle, a truth that belies the social norm as a mere construct we invented so nobody would be offended or made to feel uncomfortable by other members of the species. The truth is that all behaviour stems from somewhere and from something, a trigger fuelled by either love or by fear, therefore nothing is ever actually wrong.

I must ask the question then: does the love of Self somehow overwrite the love of others or vice versa? (Just ponder it for a moment).

The vibrant orange of the sacral chakra is positively fizzing as this week progresses, bringing your natural sexy-self to the fore in ways that, in order to accommodate, you must turn a blind eye to the world’s expectations of you and shine out what has been hidden for an age… confidence, freedom, playfulness, alluring charm, flirty abandon… it’s time to be unapologetically you.

If it rains this week, consider taking off your shoes just to dance through the warm puddles… kiss like you mean it, beam smiles at strangers, let the wind blow your skirt up, go skinny dipping, make glorious love, dive deep into your senses…

… or you could stay locked in your headspace and thoughts that you will be judged for being vulgar and so forcibly removed from this Garden of Eden just because you took a huge bite of that big juicy apple and let the juice run down your chin whilst laughing your sexy arse off!

This week’s oracle is a reminder that you are perfect, beautiful, unique and capable of connecting with your whole being not just through a meeting of minds. Get back in your body and be unapologetically you.

More next week… x

Monday Mind Management – Are You curious Enough?

By the time you reach adulthood, say 30 or so, you have a fairly good grasp of your version of reality. You could even go as far as to say you are pretty locked in by then. Conditioning has given you a set of rules to work by and a sense of right and wrong and your experience has made you a pretty accurate judge of character, an estimator and a judgment machine. It has you believing what kind of foods you will most likely enjoy, what kind of company you will thrive in, what entertainment you prefer to be distracted by, what skills and talents you have and what you cannot do… you’ve probably even developed a “type” when it comes to lovers by this time.

What if I told you that all this information is merely a set of out of date instructions to a very complex living machine?

Every time you are presented with a choice in the coming days, whether it’s as simple as what to eat for lunch or much more in depth and life altering, question your first choice. Don’t misunderstand me, I’m not asking you to make second guessing a habit or to mistrust your instincts but instead of assuming that your instincts are choosing, ask yourself if it is actually your habits that are dictating your daily reality.

In order to open a mind that is closed or a fixed consciousness, consider: are you curious enough? When we believe we already hold all the answers we stop learning, stop evolving and experiences become repetitive, but when we become curious our lives open up to new experiences, new opportunities, sparkling conversations, unlikely friendships and alliances.

Let this become a week of exploration and discovery. Let life become new and with it a whole raft of fresh possibilities. Only with a curious mind and an open heart will those risky strategies turn out to be playful learning opportunities.

Principle 4: I AM Truth always comes with the caveat “I reserve the right to evolve.” Now is not the time to stop that evolution!

I know you’ve been conditioned to believe that curiosity killed the cat, but remember the cat has nine lives… it would be a real shame not to use them all because you are safer with mediocre, eh?

Have an amazingly curious day… x

 

Saturday Oracle – Getting The Hang Of Things

Imagine my surprise when the exact same combination as last week was determined to team up again this week to guide us through Valentines Day and beyond! I guess that means with all the practice we must be getting the hang of it…

I love it when Principle 6: I AM Self-Full shows up at a time when we all seem to be conditioned toward expecting others to fulfil our emotional expectations. Valentine’s Day, traditionally a day to celebrate romantic love can cause no end of disappointment if you leave the proceedings up to someone else or if there is nobody else to leave it up to, so being Self-Full, i.e. taking responsibility for creating your own fun, being your own best friend or lover, romancing yourself with flowers, a beautifully prepared meal, and just generally lavishing yourself with loving gestures is a great representation of this combination.

Remember that the yellow solar plexus is focused on joy, so remember to remain playful and don’t take the whole shebang so bloody seriously… it’s your centre of personal power so get to grips with concept of you controlling your own choices, boundaries and direction.

A little note on handling the unexpected this week too… whilst you are focused on pleasing yourself in new and playful ways, don’t get so self obsessed and blinkered that you miss the cue when someone else asks to play with you… stay open. Remember the point of being Self-Full is so that you are fuelled up and overflowing and always ready to share in the abundance.

Have an amazing week… x

The Universe Is Speaking

A couple of weeks ago I awoke from a vivid dream feeling fired up and ready to dive into a new adventure. Nothing in my waking life up to that point, as far as I was aware, had prompted the content of the dream but it had so radically altered my perception about what I wanted from life that it heralded a wave of fresh energy and a brand spanking new set of criteria for all else to live up to.

Prior to this shiny subconscious vision I had been settling for far less than I wished for myself simply because I accepted that what life was offering was my lot… rather than my lot being defined by what I was asking for… that’s when I started to play the game with God.

Just for fun one morning I set the universe a challenge: “Right then Big G, today I want you to deliver the following: I want the sun to break through the grey sky… not just gradually but making a real ta-dah! entrance; next I want you show me an unusual bird, I love the crows that live outside the house and the other feathered specimens that are local but I want you to deliver unusual; then you have to show me a Doctor scarf and lastly I want a big smile from a sexy man!”

Of course none of this stuff was actually necessary for my day to be a success but I left it in God’s hands to deliver what I’d asked for just because I asked.

Before I even made my breakfast the clouds parted like Moses had just commanded the red sea and rays of light flooded the kitchen… “I see what you did there.” I acknowledged with a huge smile on my face. Meeting a friend for some shopping and a cuppa just a little while later I told her about the game and recounted my requests, playing the game with others is even more fun you see. As we shopped my friend said she needed to pop to the pet supplies stall in the market to find a glow in the dark collar for a puppy, so I followed happy to help… what did I find myself surrounded by? The first unusual bird was a plastic budgie with a bell attached to its butt, the second was a felt owl type thing with parrots wings and peacock feather sticking out of its butt… at this point I’m creased up laughing at the absurdity of these toys for pets that although it wasn’t what I had envisaged when I asked for unusual birds, it certainly fit the criteria… I could here Big G laughing in my mind… so the old guy sitting two tables back in the cafe has on a Doctor Who scarf and I’m trying not to spit out my tea and thinking now you just need to deliver the smile… he wasn’t my idea of sexy admittedly but then I didn’t specify sexy in whose opinion!

I played the game for 3 days solid to remind myself how powerful I was at manifesting but actually more importantly to remember that when you ask the universe for something it begins to conspire to deliver it for you… even if not in the form you asked.

Yesterday I forgot to play the game and began to slide back towards settling… before I went to bed last night the universe shoved a very definite reminder of the dream that woke me right in front of me, in this case a person from my dream, and as I began my day today I was met with further reminders of the dream… an unusual name and a specific talent… all of which contained in the original dream… none of which you would here everyday where I’m from.

The universe is speaking to me… it’s trying to get through to you too, are you listening?

Wholly Grail Principles 1 & 7

Play the game, let it impress you x

 

Saturday Oracle – Back To Bliss

It’s been a fair while since this combination came up and likewise the current renaissance that it is heralding. Principle 1: I AM God, fully embraces the effervescent yellow solar plexus chakra this week steering you back to bliss.

For a few months there has been a low energy to the Oracle which finally began to break last week, revealing a much lighter tone. What began then with relief is now moving through peace and into that blissful state the cards are suggesting… but what is new and how can you optimize the energy?

The Wholly Grail’s Principle 1 is the realisation of your own divinity, the solar plexus chakra is the house of you ego where your personal power is energetically seated. When the latter is fully aware and embracing the former it is easy to reach a transcendent state. Transcendence, in this case means to rise above the mundane.

For a while you may have been attempting to escape your reality by burying your head in the sand, but then being constantly reminded of that same tangible world at every turn – the discord between the reality and the fantasy constantly causing a separation from your soul-self. Now though, this transcendent state has allowed you to rise above the reality, not through pretending your world is different but through actually seeing it differently through God’s eyes: your enlightened eyes, inviting back an inner knowing that you have the power to transform the world by playing with it lightly.

This playful state has no manipulation about it, instead it is an innocent childlike wonder of “what happens when I do this?” Followed swiftly by delight in the unexpected results.

As this week progresses you can play your way through it by looking for Source energy in everything… hide and seek with the Divine! Be sure to laugh out loud and clap your hands at the synchronicities and ask for what you want, being sure to acknowledge every ridiculous thing that gets delivered… even if it’s not quite in the form you imagined. Glee will stem from acknowledging your magic… and magic will manifest in acknowledgment of your glee!

Have an amazing week… x

 

Adopting A Playful Approach To Today

The 7 Principles of The Wholly Grail once embraced, create powerful shifts in perception that can transform your world at its deepest level. How you perceive the world around you directly affects your interactions with it and how you interpret reality. Reality, being pliable, is waiting for you to recreate it the way you want it and you can do that by adopting a playful approach to today…

I want to give you an example of how everything can be different even if nothing has changed:

I’ve had 3 days off from stress this week because I’ve been ill. How ridiculous does that sound? Giving yourself permission to not stress over a stressful situation that hasn’t actually altered in its urgency or importance, it took being ill to let go of trying to control something that cannot be controlled, hunting for a solution that is actually already hunting for you, is in my opinion one of the most ludicrous ways to embrace Grail Principle 6: I AM Self-Full that I have ever encountered.

Ludicrous as it may be, the realisation that it took being sick to show me the futility of the situation has made this viral interlude one of the most joyful, playful illness I’ve ever had… I’ve thoroughly enjoyed it. No really… extra time in bed reading, writing and catching up with neglected stuff, long walks to clear my head (and my sinuses) talking to the trees and the birds all the while, smiling like a maniac and damn near skipping along the street. Re-embracing my favourite thing to do in the world which is dancing, albeit in my own living room…. my connection to Source has been fully restored and I can once again hear my guidance loud and clear.

Prior to adopting my playful attitude I was grasping at any and all available solutions however inappropriate they might have been for me, now I’ve remembered how powerful I am, what I’m worth, what I’m willing to accept. My discernment has resurfaced to sort the wheat from the chaff at the get go so that I don’t have to waste valuable energy exploring every option, I can instead play my way to more joyfulness and allow happy outcomes to be born of synchronicity instead.

Instead of searching frantically for a new home, I’ve begun choosing the decor for it instead, I love interior design and making things beautiful and I’m going ultra girly with this one… 3 house options have turned up this morning for my consideration simply because I remembered the meanings behind each Grail Principle:

  • Principle 1: I create my own reality (so I might as well play with it)
  • Principle 2: The time it takes is irrelevant (there is no pressure)
  • Principle 3: It’s okay if I got it wrong (let it go and begin anew)
  • Principle 4: Discernment is about what’s right for me (I can choose)
  • Principle 5: All that glitters is not gold (and diamonds start off as coal)
  • Principle 6: My well-being trumps all other agendas
  • Principle 7: Doors open when I’m open to them

Go on, see if you can transform your perspective and your luck by adopting a playful approach to today.

Have a fab weekend… x

For Being Wild And Free

When I posted the oracle reading at the weekend for this week, you might remember a mere mention of St Patrick’s Day and the Fae Goddess Aine, sometimes associated with or as the Faerie Queen Dana. Legends vary about the queen of the faeries but one legend has it that St Patrick was revered for having banished the Tuatha De Danan (Children of Dana or little people) from Ireland. Aine, instead of actually leaving, simply raised her vibration and made herself and her kin folk invisible to avoid conflict. All this because Paddy and his fellow invaders feared the Tuatha for being wild and free. The Fae found a way to co-exist anyway.

Of course the validity of the stories are questionable and I’m not really worried about the source of a good yarn, perhaps spun by a leprechaun of Tuatha origin who had one too many pints of Guinness before planting a smackeroony on the Blarney Stone… The point is thus: some old geezer with a stilted idea of what is acceptable behaviour decided to demonize a whole race because he wasn’t prepared to learn more about what it means to allow everyone to breathe their own uniqueness.

Now in other legends, Aine’s sexuality is suppressed and even oppressed by an older man who wants to control her… The story is one of abuse and not at all pleasant so I won’t elaborate but all in all the moral is: conform, reform, perform… and do it by someone else’s rules and expectations or be punished/banished.

The Wholly Grail’s Principles 1 through 7 all have a universal clause, what this means is although each Principle begins with the words “I AM” it applies to all, so whilst I AM, YOU ARE too. The problems really kick in when you lose sight of the fact that “you are.” When you feel less than, it is human nature to try to diminish or disempower another in order to level the field or to feel better about one’s own inadequacies. In truth the only power you ever need is in abundant supply and readily available from Source. That wild and free, pure innocence of knowing whose child you actually are, to the untrained eye can look like rebellion, disruption, non-conformist, far-too-lairy-for-words, who-do-you-think-you-are, I’ll-pull-you-down-a-peg-or-two shenanigans and strikes  fear in those who wish to control it.

Now, as you watch or participate in this St Patrick’s Day festivities, count how many leprechauns and leprechaun hats you see… The Tuatha had the last laugh because they successfully integrated themselves into the long forgotten and rewritten story as the hero of the hour… Aine/Dana left a legacy of magic and luck that means when the world celebrates on March 17th, it has nothing to do with a mean fella banishing the Fae Folk from the Emerald Isle and everything to do with embracing the wild pure spirit (and the black stuff).

Just as I finished writing this, my faerie guide Harvey, (short for Harv ‘a Mo, because he’s always trying to get me to think before I act… ha!) funnily enough also a ginger bearded little Irish dude in a green top hat, started telling me a joke…. “Did you hear the one about the Irish Saint who thought he defeated the Faerie Goddess…”

What was I waffling on about?
