The Winter Solstice

December 21, 2014

The shortest day, the longest night, as from today the light returns, the sun will bathe the earth for a little longer each day and the darkness will awaken from its slumber.

Slowly, slowly,  Mother earth will be coerced into movement by the warmth of the sun and together they will bring a magnificent union.  In that dark, moist mysterious place under the earths surface, magic happens.  Seeds  of our becoming will be slowly stirred into life, seeds of hope, seeds of love, seeds of compassion and they will grow strong roots and fertile shoots will forge up thought the earth, beauty will abound…………   Until then we can slumber in the winters dark night and dream of worlds we are going to bring into being.  Rest and replenish ourselves in readiness for the abundance to come………………..

Today is the time to honour the return of the light.

For me its a time to return to my work and practice.  A place that feels like returning home

 

this is such a wonderful thing to do……………..  watch and try

 

thanks to Lucia for posting this, thought it was something we all need hear

Good vibrations

September 18, 2011

Memories eh, what would we do without them…………  happy, sad, good, bad, this is what they are, part of our journey, our story that brings us to the here and now, our life as it is today.    However, if we haven’t let the more niggling ones die, we can travel back to these times, these feelings in an instant, reliving the emotions, feelings of that time right now in the present.  An adult being, responding like a child,   feeling and behaving as if we are that child with all the fear, anxiety and insecurity,  pushing our energies “vibrations” way of balance and sometimes making important decisions from this unreal place.

A friend sent em this video yesterday in response to my call for sending good vibes over to me, I was feeling rather overwhelmed with issues that had arisen, not knowing which way to turn, nobody could give me the answers, this I had to find out for myself, journey and use my intuition to guide me to what is right.  But it was so nice to know I had friends holding a good space for me, and this “connection” , heart to heart is fundamental to me in my wellbeing.

The vidieo footage did send me right back to 1966, I was 17 and had just become a mother.  Bitter sweet memories for me, guess for  a moment though I did become that 17 year old, with lots of confused feelings, joy and deep sadness but instantly I knew, that although part of my journey,  it is not with me today, I could honour the teenager in me, and know that I wouldnt be who I am today without that experience, I can see it, accept it and move and not be drawn back to those harrowing times and relive it today.  There is no need, like all things, they have their time and space, but we come to a time when they no longer serve us and we need to let them go, let them die and allow space for new seeds to be nurtered and spring forth into full blossom

Tomorrow I start to grow a seed that has been laying dormant, I am starting to train as a transpersonal art therapist, so looking forward to all the gifts that are coming my way !! and will in time share many others.

 

Clearing our “blocks”  the part in the unconscious mind that drives us, is so fundamental in this work.  If you want a more “scientific” explanation this is simple to understand, this man, BRUCE LIPTON I think, explains in a way that is so easy to understand.

The story of the relationship between Sigmund Freud and his American nephew, Edward Bernays. Bernays invented the public relations profession in the 1920s and was the first person to take Freud’s ideas to manipulate the masses. He showed American corporations how they could make people want things they didn’t need by systematically linking mass-produced goods to their unconscious desires. Bernays was one of the main architects of the modern techniques of mass-consumer persuasion, using every trick in the book, from celebrity endorsement and outrageous PR stunts, to eroticising the motorcar. His most notorious coup was breaking the taboo on women smoking by persuading them that cigarettes were a symbol of independence and freedom. But Bernays was convinced that this was more than just a way of selling consumer goods. It was a new political idea of how to control the masses. By satisfying the inner irrational desires that his uncle had identified, people could be made happy and thus docile. It was the start of the all-consuming self which has come to dominate today’s world.

The video programme here is one of four documentaries broadcast by the BBC a couple of years ago.  I have watched all four now and its left me reeling.  i guess its something I have known all along, but seeing it here in moving pictures it brings it home why this system needs to crumble, why we ned to unplug from the patriarchy.
