Modus Operandi Part 3: A Promise Is A Promise

If you didn’t catch the previous Modus Operandi posts (still available in the site’s archive) I’ve been exploring where our intentions to walk the path of enlightenment differ from our actions. Often we are in some form of denial about how effective our daily practice actually is and blinded to the occasions where we drift from our Higher Self’s encouragings.

Today then let me draw your attention to your failures… as if they need me to point them out. That’s the problem: we are so quick to intellectually and emotionally return to the scenes of our apparent inability to succeed that we fail to acknowledge the valuable lessons along the way. Principle 3: I AM Human, is the gateway towards forgiveness. Forgiveness of self as well as everyone else… for everything. In forgiving, we make a promise to ourselves to let go of the hurt, the shame, the self-abusive mind chatter and the limiting stories that go along with the prior failure… and a promise is a promise.

The realisation in the moment of forgiveness is that you went there but you don’t have to go there again, you know what lies down that road now. In reality though, we see the “I know how this turns out” and we think “what’s the point in resisting?” Why then is it so common for us to break those promises we make to ourselves?

As it’s Monday, a full moon and a lunar eclipse no less, I think today is a fabulous day to make a promise to yourself to not break any more promises you make to yourself. No matter what the past actions or outcomes, your soul is urging you to explore a different way of being, and to everyone else your word is your bond… you are just as worthy of being treated with that much respect especially from yourself.

Start by making an inventory of all the things you’ve promised yourself recently, reassess which ones are relevant to your present situation and plans for a brighter future and then take a look at your motives: is it for your highest good and that of those around you? Pick 3 things from your list that you can start now… don’t plan (if you’re anything like me then you’re a great planner and it can often be a form of further procrastination or an affirmation of how far from the target you currently are), just take the first step followed by small measured actions, you can always create the plan along the way. Yes I know that “failing to plan means planning to fail” in all that success training… but admit it, you tried that didn’t you?

The last thing to now is listen to yourself, your thoughts and your excuses. Remember now that forgiveness, “I AM Human” is not an excuse for not trying your best this time, but it is a full pardon for not quite hitting the mark last time around.

Saturday Oracle – To Through And From

Before I get going on this week’s combination it’s worth mentioning that the Sacred Chalice energy of last week still holds some sway, so if you hit the peak and the universe delivered, then keep surfing that wave, but if you tumbled to the bottom hang on in there and do what you can to refill your cup.

Now let’s get started with this lovely gem of a combination…

This week Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted, greets the high vibrational violet crown chakra in a perfect display of heaven healing earth.  What this means for each of us is inspired thought, healing energy and celestial blessings flowing to through and from those who are willing to receive.

This is the Channel’s combination. The empty vessel that may have been a result of last week’s events can now become a pure, clear channel for divine grace and inspiration.

Answered Prayer is the best way to describe this duo… don’t look though for material or physical delivery of your 3rd dimensional requests, instead recognise the fresh ideas and the creativity that is effortlessly flowing in your direction.

Now there is a catch with this energy: as inspiration flows through your Open-Hearted delivery depot, it must be sorted applied and dispatched. The title says “to, through AND FROM!” Your heart centre is both giver and receiver of blessings and in order to maintain healthy flow it must do this in equal measure.

This is a week then for Divine Service, for applying your new found higher perspective to your mission and purpose whatever that might be. Mental quickness, ingenuity, problem solving, and a desire to put theses qualities to benevolent use are all indicated here. This week might see things happening really quickly in succession as you smoothly glide from one scenario to the next almost without changing gear.

You’re likely to be ‘on fire’ this week while ever you remember where the inspiration is coming from and that the answers are being provided by a Source much higher than you. Keep returning to that font of eternal grace and let gratitude be your default setting.

You may find it helpful to call upon 3 Archangels this week to boost your celestial valve efficiency even more: Archangel Metatron who will support your Heavenly Assignment, Archangel Sandalphon who is the Angel of Answered Prayer, and Archangel Chamuel: The Angel of Destiny who will help open your heart further to this free flowing fresh energy.

Have an amazing week!

Modus Operandi Part 2 – Have You Wandered Off?

Continuing a theme from the other day, I thought we might once again explore our Modus Operandi, our method of operating in the world, asking this time: “have you wandered off?”

When studying the seven Principles of The Wholly Grail, believing ourselves to be fully embracing and honouring them, we often find that what we imagine ourselves to be doing and what we are actually doing are two different things…

I’m currently a good case and point. Presently succumbed to a minor bout of adrenal fatigue due to prolonged stress that I didn’t keep in check. I say minor because luckily I recognised the signs and took steps (Principle 6: I AM Self-Full) to detach from my stressors and to self-heal through rest, meditation, and bringing my full focus back to the present moment… I had wandered off into the future and stayed there too long, a place with no substance and certainly no sustenance.

Principle 2: I AM Detached gives us an instruction to remain present. Now, whilst we are attempting to manifest something into our lives we must point our attention to an imagined future and often make plans or take steps in the present to move in that direction, but if you are constantly pulled to what is promised or equally as detrimental: what has already gone, then we create stress, anxiety and worry energy that depletes the adrenal energy and forms an unsolvable conundrum within the forebrain, a problem that cannot be reconciled and therefore becomes a loop that brings us back to the same question over and over.

In order to fully embrace Principle 2, you have to jolt yourself loose from the infinite possibilities that only time and God can resolve, which is not always easy when loved ones and those with whom you have a shared vision constantly draw your attention to the potential in an effort to build excitement… excitement and suspense are both indicators that you are once again being pulled forward… and so starts the feedback loop again… compounding yet more stress. There will always be those who help to fuel your drama for their own ends.

Personally, I work a bit like a pressure cooker, every so often under these circumstances I will “blow off steam,” usually right before stress makes me ill. This tendency towards becoming a stress head was what led me to define the Grail in the first place.

So then, what’s your Modus Operandi? Have you wandered off too far into the shadow world of tomorrows or yesterdays?

You can use “I AM Detached” as an affirmation to help bring you back to the present moment, but it’s worth monitoring for a little while, maybe a day, where your mind wanders off to when you aren’t paying attention… that’s where all your energy is leaking and your Grail cup is spilling its precious life affirming contents.

Modus Operandi Part 1 – Don’t Tell Me Show Me

The seven Wholly Grail Principles are tools by which to create inner peace, harmony, health and happiness, but they can only achieve that if you are willing to embrace them and apply them. Many of us are willing and even believe that to a certain extent we are doing the work but when push comes to shove it turns out that denial is the reality. If your Modus Operandi matches the Grail, don’t tell me show me.

Your method of operating is your truth. What that means is, no matter how much you affirm any of the 7 “I AM’s,” if you do the opposite then you’re not faithfully following the path.

Take heart, the path is the path of life and most of us are just making it up as we go along, so even affirming a Principle is the first step to getting back on the path and course correcting towards enlightenment and more tangibly wellbeing.

So what is your M.O?

Let’s take Principle 1: I AM God… This simple yet provocative statement is revealing who you truly are behind your human facade. It says “I AM Divine Light,” “I AM Worthy…” It announces to your peers (of which everyone is a candidate simply because the affirmation “I AM God” applies to everyone and everything), that you respect yourself and you understand that you have a valuable role to play in the unfolding universe.

So, you can quote the Principle as a reminder or as an accolade but if your actions are to do the opposite, like say allowing yourself to be disrespected, constantly belittling and berating yourself, accepting less than you’re worth or less than your share, then your Modus Operandi is leading you down a road towards imbalance, resentment and unhappiness… not the Grail.

Spend just 10 minutes today assessing where in your life you say “I AM God” or something similar but consistently settle for less than a divine being is worth. A declaration of worth is just hot air otherwise.

Fuelling Intention – Don’t Waste The Magic

I’m not usually one to be lost for words but there’s a reason I didn’t post a blog yesterday. Have you ever heard the idea that the more you talk about what’s happening the more you give away the power for it to happen? The power fuelling intention – don’t waste the magic… The Faerie Magic!

Today is Lammas, or Lughnasadh if you prefer… it’s summer harvest and therefore a day to reap the fruit. (If you’ve been reading for a while then you’ll understand why I’m hoping for a pear harvest).

More importantly for me it would have been my dad’s birthday today had he made it this far, so I’m very aware that his energy is around today, mainly because my thoughts are with him and because during this time of harvest, when my own faerie magic is finding a form to take, manifesting my own hopes, dreams and wishes, my ancestral line are adding their magic into the mix to provide weight to Destiny’s endeavour.

We were always going in this direction and every one of our ancestors that dared to tread the path before us did so to lead to this point, everything they did, including my pop’s early departure… it was part of my preparation for this dance…and the dance will pave the way for whatever or whoever comes next.

Take today to honour those that came before. I know there are national and international holidays to do that but today being the first harvest, it’s a day where we reap the abundance that they created, that they stepped aside to leave behind for us. It’s a day where gratitude should be our guide and sharing our only goal.

Whatever your intentions turn into, know that they are paving the way for future generations and that one day in the distant future a harvest will be born of your sacrifice too. Don’t waste the magic.

Saturday Oracle – Teetering On The Rim

Sometimes you just know. This is now quite possibly our most popular pick in its regularity at least, and I wasn’t at all surprised by its appearance.

The Sacred Chalice turns up when you are about to hit either the top or the bottom of a cycle and brings with it either great celebration or alternatively great sadness or disappointment. As I’m writing this I honestly cannot get a sense of which it will be as you’re teetering on the rim and it could go either way.

Success or failure, for now, you have done all you can to influence the outcome and you must surrender to a power much higher than yours to determine what fate has in store, a bit like The Wheel of Fortune in tarot.

What I can tell you, and if you have been reading this week’s posts you will be as unsurprised by this pick as I am, is that when this Chalice appears, so too does the energy of imbalance…

If you win: celebrating will take the primary focus and other areas of life will be neglected as you indulge in the revelry of your success.

If you lose: drowning your sorrows will have exactly the same effect, as will wallowing in self pity.

Either way you will no doubt have failed to heed a few Principles in the run up to the make or break moment, most notably Principle 2: I AM Detached, as your mind races to predict impossible to pin down outcomes, stress will most surely have kicked in and mental and emotional exhaustion can often be a result of the increased anxiety… be aware that this will increase your risk of illness as your immune system depletes. If you are lucky enough to fall into the full Cup of Destiny then the happy hormones that follow will sort you right out, but if you are the unlucky one who falls off the golden rim and tips the Chalice up all over you, then I’m sending you straight from here to the Self-Full corner to put all your attention back onto your own health and personal care.

I wish I could give you an exact heads up on what the outcome might be but what I can tell you is this: when you let go, surrender and allow life to happen, you give it permission to surprise you…

And may it surprise you beautifully this week.

More next week.

Into The Swing – Reassess Your Priorities

If something pivotal has occurred in your life, no doubt things will look confusing for a time until you get into the swing of things.

Accepting new information or a new set of circumstances often involves integrating into your world something that wasn’t there before or even an absence of something that was. Schedules may go awry, routines become entangled and proverbial balls get dropped on the floor.

It’s perfectly acceptable to take time to find your new normal and more than acceptable – it’s absolutely necessary. In many cultures we call it the honeymoon phase, it’s where you get a temporary free pass… more accurately it’s the learning phase where everyone involved takes on the personality of the innocent fool, the student tip-toeing through life’s brand new classroom absorbing information, skills and new techniques as they go.

Reassess your priorities now based on Principle 4: I AM Truth.  What this means is focusing on what’s true and pertinent for you at this stage in your journey. Some of those lovely balls that smash on the floor may actually be filled with nothing more than air and now you feel its time to leave them behind to concentrate on a more authentic version of your dream. Sure, you may feel like you are letting some folks down but the absolute truth of the matter is that you will never be able to please everybody anyway, so then far better to please yourself and allow others to adjust in their own way and go through the same process of reassessing their own priorities.

The world adjusts and organises itself daily to new parameters and this is no different.

It’s helpful to understand what your priorities actually are. In the Seekers section of the site this coming week I’m posting an article about achieving balance, in it will be a chart of all the relevant areas of life that are requiring your attention. It’s free to join as a Seeker here if you would like to take a look.

…For now though, enjoy the temporary chaos, it’s the most satisfying disarray you’ll experience… it’s called creating a new life.

Understanding Your Motives – In It For The Long Game

There is an energy at present that centres around the culmination of a lot of years of focus. The potential now is so intense that whatever happens next is either the end of the beginning or the beginning of the end – make or break so to speak. That kind of intensity though can cloud judgment, force reactive behaviour and in some cases cause you to run towards an outcome or even away from it depending on your dominant archetypal energy.

Whatever this main focus of attention is, you can bet that all the other aspects of day to day life have taken a back seat and that imbalance is already occurring. (If you’re a member, I will be addressing this imbalance in the Seeker’s section this week. You can join for FREE here).

Here though, I would instead like to concentrate on one potential stressful factor that could become the trigger for one of those reactive behaviours: Have you forgotten why?

Understanding your motives for any action is the purest way to ensure you meet the challenge in a ‘success focused’ way.

Let’s take a new relationship as an example. Whether it be a romantic relationship or a business partnership or any other meeting of minds and hearts, it takes two parties to have the same agenda in order to bring about the desired outcome. Factor in free will, personal schedules, historical baggage, poor communication or misunderstandings and the whole process takes much longer.

Now baring in mind that we are feeling the universal flow bringing things to a pinnacle, all these trifles will no doubt be raising cortisol levels and pushing all the internal fear buttons… so now remember: “Why?”

You’re in it for the long game.

You’re not trying to get somewhere, this IS the relationship. It’s not where it is going but it is where it is, it is what it is, and what it is is growing… a work in progress, a masterpiece of manifestation. Look how far you’ve come.

The momentary surge of ‘now or never’ is just an illusion of time. The time is indeed right for this next step but this next step is simply another step in the story, beautiful now and heading towards many more beautiful things.

Be assured that what you feel under all the uncertainty, the reason you began this quest, that bit is real; the fear, the stress and the urgency are symptoms of insecurity that arise when your “what?” becomes the focus instead of your “why?”

Patience combined with the absolute clarity of the vision that began this journey will carry you through the next few days… and then the next part of the adventure will commence… it has been promised.
