One foot in the air

I often conjure up in my mind’s eye Blake’s “Glad Day” when I ponder the concept of “void” or “pure potential”. Does such a thing even exist, a question raised by my last post “Courage and Curiosity in the Void“? … Continue reading

Tending to our nervous systems

I don’t think there is any denying that all of us…more collectively than ever before…have taken a massive hit to our nerves this year and now is the time to tend to them. Now, before we move into the next … Continue reading

Dialling into our golden future

When we dare to dial into a future self that embodies what it would look like to be alive and THRIVE on planet earth, this locks us on to that future potential and, suddenly, its as though we are on a ski lift taking a direct wire to the high peaks of our experience and it all gets so much easier. We’re no longer distracted by all the squabbles and gloom down there in the mosh-pit; we are on the fast track to something else and we can feel it as an electric tingle though our energy body (which has never felt more alive). More synchronicities, more clues, more intuitions, just more more more becomes our normal experience and everyday an ever-unfolding adventure of purest potential because we trust what is at its other end, holding the line taut…its us in our future format, beckoning us towards the kind of future we can invest in with all our hearts!

Be prepared to hold the paradox

In these quick-sand times, we are being asked by our highest essence (as we always are, but more overtly so than ever) to notice where paradox lies in our field. That’s to say, wherever our most fervent belief about something … Continue reading

Don’t get caught up in “it will always be like this from now on…”

We need a spirit of adventure and possibility on the inside to effect this gear-change, the colourful imagination to hold whatever preferred reality we choose as a way finder “up ahead” in our sights, plus the sheer determination to never give up. If this sounds so very hard to pull off, it’s a measure of just how far we have been separated from our most intrinsic “higher” human qualities by a false narrative. Continue reading

Grounded

Sometimes its when we most feel like we are “grounded” that we take off and fly…a sure sign that we really needed it! Continue reading

When will we truly understand the power of believing in our vote?

Voting is important; I couldn’t agree more, but we vote in far more ways than one and there’s no point putting an “x” in a box only to contradict that choice with a lack of belief. Exploring some of our vastly under-utilised powers as creator beings, along with some of the subtle misgivings and sheer dauntedness we may feel around wielding them (as one who knows only all too well…) Continue reading

…and now, really act like you’re awake

To be wide awake though challenged is more powerful by far than to be asleep and at relative ease…Its time to step into our awake state and fully own it now. Continue reading

The Sacredness of Life as purpose

If you happened upon this post, having often wondered what it was that made life so hard and even purposeless in your case when others seem to thrive, then know that it shouldn’t be the case…and that you are probably not that far off from flipping everything in your favour. The point is, first off, to realise that you are not “made” like everyone else and to recognise and honour those differences as the unused gifts that they probably are. You have a purpose but it may not look like anyone else’s purpose (though it is beneath the surface…yours is just wrapped up in slightly different priorities). Yours may sound a lot more abstract than theirs when you find it…but that’s not to say it can’t be put to practical use. The point is to identify that purpose (what has been the one thing that seems most important to you and which has driven you along, throughout all the various “projects” of your life, even “accidental” ones such as claiming your health back…) and then use that to fuel your own chosen trajectory. Yes, you can and will grow out of the dark places that may have become your home or your hide-y-hole for so long; but you need the right scaffolding to assist you to do that and, like all the best scaffolding, this needs to be supportive from within.

Little wren

All kinds of realities can look as real as anything as we proceed through our human existence; we are all surrounded by them, every day, but when we keep hurting ourselves because of them, we can be sure they are a fiction of some kind…perhaps one that is so long-running that we don’t even remember anything different. They can be as convincing as anything we have ever seen, made all the more potent through the tug of nostalgia and familiarity. When they are a false reality in our experience, and they suddenly dissolve, we don’t go to pieces with that circumstance but, rather, that dissolution is what it takes to end the repeat cycles of self-destruction….perhaps even those repeated across many lifetimes. We stop hurling ourselves and hurtling mindlessly towards things that don’t serve us, in search of what we have fixated upon as “what we need to perpetuate in order to survive”. As is sometimes the case before illusory worlds fall apart (as we are seeing happen right now in our world-politics…), the illusory reality sometimes has to be stepped up to become even more overtly unnatural than ever, in order for us to “get it” and move on. Such a moment is what proceeds the moment of realisation…when we, as it were, wake up to what is real and swiftly find our way back to ourselves.

This tale of extreme optimism was “told” to me by a little wren just the other day… Continue reading
