Eclipse into your true power.

FullSizeRender 2Today is a very special day! A rare second new moon in the same month. A double eclipse in the same sun sign (Leo) – a greater rarity. A total eclipse over one continent only (US). Even greater rarity. This definitely calls in for some insane acknowledgement.

There are always enormous layers to the messaging of a day like today and it is fair for you to pick any of them. Broadly it is a day when you should allow your mind to be wild and free in its imagination and possibility of creation. Call in your deepest desires with a sense of deep empowerment and know they will manifest for that is your truth and power. Immense imaginative powers are at play here, so use them to enhance your collective potential. Call in the best of yourself.

This is a time of great potential and celebration.

Yet, there is a need to consider the aspects that come in the way of us experiencing our complete power and in turn our collective best. We must acknowledge the darkness that shades the light. This eclipse is a total solar eclipse that is visible only within the US or as a play with words within us.

Those in power can help or abuse. At present those in power in the US, are opening up channels for people to express their true selves – so that means if they are bigots and haters then they are coming out in their fullness and expression. Those that stand against bigots and haters are also coming into their full expression.

Yet one thing to keep in mind is that whether we are the white supremacists who hate or the ones that hate the white supremacists – it matters not – the word HATE is the common denominator. This is true for humanity at large.

While we may see it highlighted in the US it is not a US problem. It takes bravery on a soul level for anyone to stand up to be a mirror to darkness and if the US has chosen to be so – that is only its bravery and that of its people. Ultimately, these shadows exist within all of us – to a large or smaller degree in an acceptable or an unacceptable manner. We today function as a global community, and hence we learn from each other. We should acknowledge this lesson is as much for us as for anyone else.

If we want to experience our true power than we have to be brave. Brave is not the fight outside of us but the fight within. The darkness we see outside of ourselves lies within us. While this might seem like a ‘wrong statement’ especially for the good guys – it is the truth. Ultimately if we are affected by this anger and hatred and bigotry, it is so because even if it be dormant, it still exists within us. Rather than wait a lifetime or lifetimes for it to rise and show itself we can use the energies available to us today to work on our darkness (eclipse) especially the spaces of anger, hate, bigotry(US). In recognising these exist within us – we have the opportunity to allow the light in as we set new intentions (new moon) to shine our brightest best and experience our ultimate true power (Leo).

Hate lies in the heart of those in pain. In healing our hearts we are healing our pain leading us onto experiencing our true power.

This might not be an easy journey which is why Inner power (empowerment) exists in the heart of the true and brave.

We must all RISE to be better versions of our selves. What we do as individuals affects the collective.

Be strong – be wild – be free!

Mother Earth: a reflection of our sacred space.

Earth is an incredibly beautiful, almost perfect planet in our solar system. Without doubt, she offers an experience like no other. Is she so by chance or is there another intelligence that makes her so? Holding this mystery that is continually unknown, she urges you to seek further and deeper no matter how far you may have come.

Joseph Campbell said, “Your sacred space is where you find yourself again and again”.
According to some belief systems we are born multiple times on earth. If that be so; she seems to be a sacred space that we keep finding ourselves in again and again.

Is she the sacred space outside of us that is reflective of the sacred space within ourselves?

Mother Earth is also Mother Nature.

In seeking the eternal question – Who am I? We seek to understand our immutable infinite timeless self — which we can really only understand by understanding and realising our true nature.

Today, most of us identify natural spaces as landscaped gardens. However, Mother Nature really shows up in her verdant glory only in spaces that are largely untouched by man; which today, are few and far between. If you happen to know some of them you will find her magnificence of natural beauty within the diversity and variety of her creations; forests, seas, corals, mountains, valleys, flora, fauna, sunsets, sunrises… What we as humans seem to have forgotten is that we too are one of her creations.

The true purpose of natures beauty is to:
– create wonder and awe
– inspire a feeling of transcendence
– evoke the realisation that we are part of nature
– realise there is an intelligence which balances this divine perfection called Nature.

The true purpose of life is to find that connection with Source. An undeniable fundamental alignment that you can anchor yourself within and live from.

Soil is Soul.

Natural gardening proposes soil is king.

Natural living proposes soul is king.

Soil is Soul. Thats how nature speaks to us.

Soil is soul

So what is the magic of good soil? One that grows things easily, with great quality and quantity. Soft, pliable and nutrient rich. That which hosts a number of supportive ‘bugs’ all of whom are working judiciously on supporting that which is growing in its environment.

Today we have two types of soil – interfered soil and non interfered soil. Interfered soil is that in which man has decided he knows best and seeks to create something commercially viable. Of course there are degrees of interference – some farm through organic interference and others through intensive means.

Loosely considered the father of Natural farming: Masanobu Fukuoka was a proponent of ‘do-nothing’ farming. A philosopher and a farmer he was able to maximise productivity through his observation of the perfection of nature.

So natural farming/LIVING involves engagement and assistance over interference. It recognises the need to understand how life works, what it comprises.

In the case of soils, how different ones respond in different ways, each producing its own incredible plethora of flora in turn attracting its special fauna.

Forest soil is the most fertile. Thats mostly because there is very little human interference. It is also because there is a wide variety and multi layered growth. Every part of the forest floor is used. Ground cover, weeds, bushes, plants, creepers, trees, all exist in the forest. Light is harvested to the maximum, it is completely absorbed by whatever can be grown. A dynamic combination of growth coexist, supplement and support each other. Seeds engage with soil and have the opportunity to germinate and grow and bloom and fruit.
This incredible diversity pulls out the maximum from the soil only to give back to it a multiverse of potential and power packed leaves. Through natural processes(composting) they create even more nutrient rich and power packed soil; feeding back to the tree what it needs. This incredible natural cycle supports the existence of not only amazing plant growth but a number of interdependent species as well — each of which come from the soil and end up by giving back to the soil.

Our soul is the same. Continue reading Soil is Soul.

Compost your life away…

Sitting down in a meadow one day a gush of wind blew my way. It brought with it a refreshing and cooling feeling and a bunch of leaves that were shaken lose.

As I sat there I saw the cushion these leaves made on the ground. They floated down one by one and they gathered at the base of the tree’s mound. I smiled and thought with glee “oh wow – thats the softest carpet going around”.

I went up to the tree and just lightly hugged it a bit and the soft leaves some crunchy and others just melted with my weight.

And thats when the tree spoke to me and said you are just like me. Here I stand big and tall. Easily growing leaves and letting go of those that no longer hold strong. I choose not to hold on to things that no longer serve me. For sometimes in letting go, is when they are of the best use to me.

So this is what I understood that day. I understood that the tree is so great and perfect and tall weathers every ‘weather’ and still stays strong. It goes through the winter and sheds all its leaves, and then comes spring and it happily grows a whole ‘treeful’ more. Change is constant in nature as we have all seen; and yet it is the one thing that we fight hard to allow and resist to the maximum.

Going even beyond, the leaves the tree lets go off, becomes its compost and merges back with its soil lifting it nourishing it nurturing it back to health and power; feeding it back to the roots of the tree making them deeper, stronger, potent so that the tree might grow higher, taller, bigger, better.

So the tree never loses in letting go, it only gains much much more.

Similarly, with every fear, resistance, blockage you let go off, it falls into your energetic space and converts through a potent form of transformation into a cannonball of energy that will push you on. So in the purest of senses there is no real letting go; just the allowing of transformative charge to take over and flood your life.

So compost your life. Shed your half baked leaves/emotions/thoughts, let them go and settle down into your core and from there allow them to transform into an incredible potent wisdom and power that you currently don’t know of.

Whoever you become, there will come a day when you will let go of that too till you are evolving deeper and deeper into a truer you.

Happy Earth week! ❤️

 

Thank you to you, that hurt me…

It matters not what someone has done to you — what matters is what do you do about it.

At some point you must consider that you are not a mistake in life — you are a creation of the perfect divine force and you have been created for a reason. So take a breath and stop for a moment and say; “I EXIST – and just the fact I exist, shows I was meant to exist — I am not a mistake in this otherwise divinely perfect world (which of course it is without human intervention). Therefore, if I exist in a divinely perfect world and I am a divinely perfect creation could it be possible that everything I have gone through and am going through is possibly divinely perfect too? So if every single event in my life has happened for a reason — whether someone has done any of the things listed above or worse — it has happened because it was meant to. Why has it happened so?

There are no general answers only specific ones completely related to your specific reason for existence.

Everything has happened because it was meant to. Depending on where you stand in your journey this statement might make complete sense or it may be the most ridiculous thing you have ever heard.

Anger may jump up and say; “that thing — that worst thing that happened to me, happened to me for a reason? NO thats not possible — it is ‘xyz’ fault and they are to blame. They are the worst kind of humans and they deserve to be punished”.

Maybe so;  Maybe they will be; maybe they won’t. That’s not for you to know.

You can spend your life focusing on their retribution or you could spend your life rehabilitating your own.That is what it comes down to.

What will you choose to do with your life and all the many complications it holds? Sometimes when we see ‘new age spirituality’ and it all talks of unicorns and angels and happy beings — we think its all gobbledygook. Well to those that have walked on their path of transformation it isn’t. The world looks clearer, more beautiful and easier than you could imagine while still standing on the side of anger and frustration and revenge.

The first thing is you take responsibility for everything that has happened and you may find yourself saying;

Let me consider — just consider that everything in my life has happened for a reason? Well, what was that reason? Why did/do I have to suffer like this? Why is there so much pain and confusion and hurt and anger and frustration and despair and grief logged into me? Why do these cloud my every day — and why is it that they don’t let go of me? Why is it I don’t let go of them? I can’t…I can’t find the strength or the ability to let go — I don’t know how — its just too much and its too hard — and no one would understand and there is no way I can open up myself — there is too much shame/guilt/pain/anger/hate. I will pretend yes thats what I will do — I will push all these bad emotions away so deep inside that they will never again see the light of day .No one can or will know this space inside. In fact you know what? I myself will soon forget what hides from the light”.

Enlightenment is a big word nowadays — so many seek it — unaware that what it really refers to. Bringing in more light into the shadows and darkness of your inner cave; everyday.

I know, I truly know what that feeling is like. It can be overwhelming, painful, unbearable, insane, confusing, lost at times; but if you stay on course it will certainly bring clarity, ease, peace, comfort, happiness and love.

So to each one that has hurt you — incident, experience, person, words, disease, or yourself — know they push you on to discover the truth of your SELF.

They bring out the feelings that we would otherwise hide and offer us an opportunity, a window to peek inside. They push us, encourage us, force us even; depending on how resistant we are to peek within.
It starts with a peek, once you take that step, the power of support, guidance, blessings will flood your path and you will be continuously encouraged on your every step.

It isn’t always a candy floss experience — some days are dark and some nights are heavy but continue to persevere and be the warrior to fight the battle that has arisen — between your own darkness and light.

You are here for a reason and one reason alone — to heal yourself and know the truth of your whole. So if you go off radar/direction you will find that the Universe will bring you back in line.

The tougher the lessons, the greater your strength and the more power you will have when you do decide to dive within.

BE real, be honest and allow the divine to take you into the ride of your life.

Then will come the day that you will surely say; “Thank you” to all the detractors that came your way.

Sacrifice, its energy and what is the truth?

run away from the world

Sacrifice yourself. How does this word make you feel?

Surrender yourself. How does this word make you feel?

Sacrifice is a belief we need to give up something outside of ourselves — an outer expression. Every traditional way of life or religion is based on the energy of sacrifice. We don’t even realise how strong this energy is and how it reflects in all aspects of our life. As a parent we sacrifice our happiness and needs for our children. As partners we sacrifice our freedom for the other. As children we sacrifice our truth for our parents.                                  It matters not — somehow or the other there is a belief that we cannot be all that we wish to be as it is virtuous to give up something related to our power, energy, happiness, joy, fulfilment  passions for the power, energy, happiness, joy, fulfilment, passions of another.
Essentially we sacrifice ourselves for another. We do this sometimes within a space of martyrdom or victimhood claiming to feel oddly better than the other, because we have given up more of our selves, and feel superior about it. Our suffering we believe reflects a mark of goodness and virtue.

What is surrender; if it is not sacrifice? Continue reading Sacrifice, its energy and what is the truth?
