A woman’s voice across time

I like to think I’ve swept some grace through these places over the years; doing what grace does best, mixing up the light and the dark so that the line between them becomes softened…perhaps even more radiant. I like to think that in getting closer to finding my wholeness here, against all odds, I’ve increased the odds for all things that I’ve brushed past on my wending way… Exploring the underlying perfection of the places we happen to be in, however those happen to seem.

Fate worse than death

Its not death but LIFE that we dread, because life can be the very devil due to our sentience…which is our universal ability to FEEL and to KNOW things through all of the senses, a collective ability that can be referred to as our emotional mind or even heart mind…which is far superior to the mind we equate with our rational thoughts. It’s why we live in so much fear of the death process, whether we own up to these fears or not…since we feel our way all the way to its door…and yet our entire culture is built upon practices that inflict our very worse fears on others. We all seem to know this about ourselves and yet we don’t act upon most of the time. This simple inconsistency between what we know and how we behave underlies so much that is going wrong that if we could but own up to our universal sentience, shared by all creatures that draw breath, and then fix it…well, who know.

Crossing over

We’ve been made so wary of “crossing over”. Yet Our crossing over points are where we get to know ourselves better, to express ourselves and manifest what we choose…indeed, where we consciously create ourselves through our very choices to mix a bit of “this” with a little bit of “that”. They’re what make us divinely human via daily exercise of our manifester skills, based on our own personal recipe…of both head and heart. Continue reading

When did you last cry?

When did you last cry…seriously, when? If the time is right (…if not today, maybe soon) let it out. Coax it. Do what it takes to breach the dam. For me it was a day of self-compassion, a hot bath … Continue reading

Getting out of the sacrifice mentality

How do we get out of the sacrifice mentality that is still so prevalent that it underlies the very way we run our lives, what we eat, what we are prepared to do for a living, how easily we give up on our dreams and our values, just so many matters of health, not to mention our very ability (or not) to fulfil our true potential. Yes its everywhere, drummed into us from birth, yet most people have never given it a second thought. So, why are we (still) so hooked on such an outworn concept that serves us so ill…like we are sacrificed to the very idea of putting ourselves through it on perpetual loop. Where does it lurk beneath our very noses and what can we do about it? Continue reading

The joy of finding tribe

When you find “tribe” your relative uniqueness can flip from being a weakness to becoming your very power-point…that which unites you and makes you more determined to be the difference together. Deep familiarity sweeps you over for the fact that it is so typically absent when you are amongst other people…and suddenly you are all lit up, laughing at all the ironies that once floored you, ignited with enthusiasm, passion, innovation and determination whilst eagerly gobbling up all the resources you can pool together. Its a powerful thing and all the more so when its been absent from your life for so long you had all but convinced yourself you were destined to travel this road alone.

Staying dry?

We are not infallible on this road to our higher consciousness, even though we may notice we have the wind behind us once we get on our way. Part of that awakening consciousness is to be aware of this hardship and the paradoxical nature of the territory…and notice where we are still vulnerable; where old addictions and fears draw us back to what no longer resonates for reasons such as familiarity or wanting to belong. From time to time, we may need to think into these areas as well as using the heart (the head is not our enemy; it can be our servant…or research-assistant…when we need to be quite clear about something where there are old-trends to be made sense of). Doing “the work” of thinking something through can help support the heart without taking it over. Its just a new way of orchestrating an age-old partnership, with different emphasis, putting us on a better footing to approach a decision openly, without agenda, except to serve the highest outcome.

Leave what you know…

Set sail from the shore. “Paint” in life what you feel from your depths, not your intellect. This will flutter and shape-shift; you’ll never catch up…but oh the journey, the heights, the joy. Scared? Oh yes. Feel that too.

We are the keystone of the bridge

Too often, the well-meaning desire for wholeness resorts to force or self-claimed authority to try to make this union happen; and its left uncomfortable, raw, impermanent and ready to blow-up at again at the slightest pressure. When we craft a version of wholeness as an extension of ourselves, in the way of any true project of the heart, the in-built incentive is already there to remain whole because it feels so good; since it comes straight from our divinity. We are remembering who we really are, outside the arena of halves that is the earth plane, and it feels…well…divine! Continue reading

Taking off those lead boots

Every moment you spend raking over the old paradigm is another moment spent in there. Check in with yourself, where are you still doing this? Its like wearing lead boots!   ***
