You’re Halfway There But Look How Far You’ve Come

As we entered July in the middle of last week it suddenly occurred to me that we had past the halfway mark in the year. Normally that floods me with a sense of “it’s all downhill from here,” but this year it feels different. A voice from the heavens was gently reminding me (to remind you) “You’re halfway there but look how far you’ve come.”

Call it what you will, but…

2020 so far has been remarkable. The forced alterations in our day to day lives have triggered a whole host of external and internal transformations that were somehow always destined to propel us along a new trajectory.

For me personally, that began around this time last year when I freed myself from a long term entanglement and began to rebuild my life the way I wanted it to be. This time for me, not for anyone else. It was transformed further when I jumped at the opportunities the universe sent my way, learning new skills and developing my long held dreams to serve more people in a way that honoured their stories as well as my own.

Finally finding balance

Perhaps sensing the incoming universal shifts earlier this year, I began to separate myself from even more unbalanced relationships, friendships and connections, reinforcing my personal and professional boundaries to protect my energy and align with the Principles I have spent years learning and developing.

It’s ok that it’s messy

The Grail is a blueprint for personal and spiritual happiness, wellbeing and peace but when you are so far off it, the journey back takes time and can look messy and uncomfortable to the outside world. I’ve been learning the path for years, but I only chose to walk it consciously the moment I began to say no to anything that is out of integrity with it.

Have I changed. Hell Yes!

Does that change please everybody in my life? Er?… No.

When Spirit reminded me: “You’re halfway there but look how far you’ve come,” I knew that another impending shift was just around the corner. I feel the phase coming to a close and a new one beginning. I’m well aware of the discomfort my clients and students go through when they begin this path in earnest, because I’ve lived it myself… but on the otherside of finding the Grail, is the self-love, peace and fulfilment you’ve been looking for. It may look very different from what you have imagined but it will feel better than you could ever have hoped for.

You are worth the effort

If you are struggling through life’s transitions at the moment, no matter what phase you are in, remember you are worthy of beautiful balanced connections and a life that will honour who you are at every level… and don’t settle for anything less than love, light and abundance. You’re halfway there but look how far you’ve come.

Graduating From A Soul Lesson

It was a toss up today between writing about this intentional subject or veering off into the topic of dealing with overwhelm and overcommitment, which is kind of where I feel I am at the moment. Graduating from a soul lesson though feels like the theme most relevant to my own evolution and the overwhelm is a temporary imbalance brought on by entusiasm for a million projects at once.

I was reminded this morning by a friend who inadvertently, whilst asking about one of her own soul-lessons, got me thinking about how far I had come and how I have emotionally let go to such a degree that the old patterns of being triggered by old stories don’t even apply anymore.

Healing has taken the form of extreme self-love a recognition of the life I want and the compromises I’m just not willing to make to achieve it. More importantly, that making those compromises previously, was actually pushing me further and further into the opposite of the of what I most wanted. Some people will never be able to give you what you want, it’s up to you to give it to yourself.

I came acoross a post recently from someone who has played an important role in my own soul’s evolution, especially when it comes understanding to love (and being loved well). I recognised that old hurts and disappointments have given way to gentle gratitude and an underlying wish for him to heal. I have no need to be involved in his healing, at least not anymore, the simple wish is enough… I’ve served my time, I’ve passed my higher consciousness exams and I’m quietly celebrating my graduation from a soul lesson that almost broke me, almost destroyed my life, but ultimately compelled me to seek a higher love and install the compassion programme deep into my psyche, firstly for myself and then for him and those that went before. It birthed me into a new level of service.

Engaging Principle 7 of The Grail through fully understanding Principle 1, (supported and accomplished by applying the other 5 keys to balance and fulfilment), set me free from a pattern that led in a circular motion toward more of the same. You can do it too.

Whatever pattern you have been trying to break free from in your life, whether it was in relationships, behaviours, beliefs or whatever, know that when you start focusing on self-love and don’t be afraid to let go of the familiar, then give yourself time with compassion, you will eventually break loose and graduate from your own soul lesson.

Weekly Oracle – The Moment Of Truth

Out of 50 possible combinations and well over a hundred basic interpretations, this has quite possibly been the most frequently selected card from The Intuitive Chalice Oracle of the year, showing it to be a year of vast transformation. But we aren’t here to lament the year, we are instead looking only to the week ahead and the moment of truth it delivers.

The Sacred Chalice is the wild card in this oracle, it means a sudden shift is in store. Now I don’t know about you but there seems to have been a flurry of sudden shifts recently and my feet feel like its been a while since they’ve touched the ground. 

Ups and downs are a part of life and in my last Grail insight I was talking about being present with what is, but when what is is shifting so quickly, it can be hard to keep up and so the Sacred Chalice can often spell illness or a loss of vital energy as we scramble to ride the changes that are occurring in our lives. So many people I know have just been through this phase though and that is why I’m reading this energy as a breakthrough beyond this stage.

This week, expect the moment of truth to arrive and a revelation to bring resolution, but that resolution will require a decision and subsequent action to create yet another shift in circumstance somewhere not too far along the path.

Imagine that you have been waiting for a long time for a situation to end. What comes after? Some form of new beginning obviously, but when that new beginning is outside of your realm of experience, a new learning curve has to be negotiated… and though that might turn out to be steep climb, new skills will be acquired along the way… but then so will fear, uncertainty, regret and discomfort… all natural reactions to choosing to step beyond your comfort zone.

This Sacred Chalice then is less about the moment of truth or the reckoning at hand and more about what you choose to do with the new situation it propels you into. More of the same is not an option anymore…

Your new beginning is being presented… what you gonna do?

Our Honoured Teachers – Relationship Edition

As you walk your path through life, sometimes aware of the Grail, sometimes holding it and sometimes oblivious to the abundance available to you, you find yourself side by side with those meant to show you the way and others meant obscure it. Our honoured teachers all have significance to the journey… some more than others.

Can you give credit to the people who have shifted your life in significant ways without needing to place good and bad labels on the methods by which those changes were introduced?

Our honoured teachers come and go as parents, children, siblings, friends, co-workers etc. but none perhaps so significant as those we willingly give our hearts to. Lovers, spouses, potential lovers and those who came close, all have a unique message for our personal growth. We were not meant to walk the path alone and will always seek our own reflection in others.

Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted is the last in the set of Wholly Grail Principles… it requires balance, give and take, the mastery of the other Principles, but none so much as the first, Principle 1: I AM God. This simple acknowledgment of the divine in all life reminds us that you and I are not separate from each other, I honour you as a teacher because I see you in me, I see me in you, we are the same and it is through rediscovering that over and over that the greatest lessons occur.

You too are someone’s honoured teacher. You have hurt and you have healed many on the path, sometimes consciously, sometimes unconsciously. There were times when you deliberately drained or spilled the Grail of another and there were times when you couldn’t possibly know how little they had left to give. It was never your responsibility to refill anyone’s cup but your own… as it was the responsibility of each companion to only attend to theirs.

Another honoured teacher is just up ahead. They may have a familiar face or the face of a stranger, it is of no consequence the outer shell… all teaching is cyclical until the blessing is extracted and the lesson is complete. As your next teacher approaches, remember the cyclical nature of The Wholly Grail… Principle 1 is the key and Principle 7 is the lock.

May your heart be open and all your teachers be honoured… x

Ever Present Yet Forever Missed

I thought I’d pop in an impromptu Tuesday offering this week as it’s a very significant day for me. Thirty eight years ago today when I was just a wee skinny seven year old, my daddy passed from this life having uttered my name as his very last conscious declaration.

Each of us has a measured amount of playtime here in the physical, so when the day comes that you leave, it’s good to know you did something special with it… special though, doesn’t need to be world changing, it is just as significant to mean the world to just one or a few people.

It doesn’t end there, tomorrow is the twenty third anniversary of my Nan’s (grandmother’s) passing… one of the strongest most intelligent women I ever had the pleasure of knowing. Both these beautiful souls are ever present yet forever missed in my life.

Life would look very different had they lived longer, not better, not worse just very different. You see, death changes the living, as does new life. We carry with us the teachings, the memories, the love that was shared and we transform it’s best aspects into becoming what we are always meant to become… but if they had stayed here in the physical realm, their influence would have developed and the lessons they left us with would have been superseded by fresh input thus changing the outcome so who you are today, what you know, who you’ve met might be different. The love you know now might not exist in the same form, so bless even their passing as it served you as God intended.

But nobody really left.

There is a tangible feeling today of being lovingly guided, supported and nurtured by the unseen and a reassurance that they who stepped off did so in order that you might become everything you were supposed to become in divine right timing.

On Beltane just gone, I drew together a group of my students in a full day workshop called “The Soul’s Support System” so that they too could feel the benevolence of their ancestral line holding them in eternal embrace through the further development of the Soul Star chakra… and now they never have to feel alone again.

The number 23 has so much meaning for me as a result of this day, more so this year with tomorrow’s 23rd anniversary and whatever it’s numerology or angelic significance, to me it simply means love is eternal, you’re never alone.
