Chasing Rainbows

There is something of an epic battle going on deeply within; it seems that as we continue to awaken, we are touching clarity and divinity with one hand but facing challenges, doubt and fear with the other. Our faith keeps us strong (most of the time!), but there are moments when faith melts away leaving uncertainty and confusion to rule the roost. Intuitively we realise that this is all a part of the journey of awakening, but the reality of living with it can be somewhat harder to embrace. Of course, whilst we want to be serene and walk in

The Light And Dark Stand Equal

The Equinox is a time of balance as the light and the dark stand equal. In the Northern Hemisphere, this marks the beginning of the descent into winter, but we should not forget that it marks the ascent into summer in the Southern Hemisphere. Balance; there is always balance. Sometimes we have to look for it, but nature always provides a balance whether it is day and night, light and dark, birth and death… Yet, we can so easily become focused on the shorter days, the dimming light and the unmistakable chill in the air. It is all too easy

Randomly Scattered or A Divine Plan?

For many fellow travellers riding the waves of shift and change, this seems to be a time of disquiet and uncertainty, confusion and angst. There is a sense of the blurring of boundaries and the merging of consciousness between different levels of awareness, and this is creating feelings of disconnection from both the Self and the Whole. Discord is emerging from within, creating storylines and patterns that feel incongruent and overwhelming, and despite intuitively sensing the ‘bigger picture’, it is hard not to feel isolated and alone, cut off and disconnected. Emotions begin to surface from anger to ecstasy, but

Embracing The Extraordinary

As the path of awakening continues, and as sleepwalkers stir all around, there is a sense that the new wave of consciousness is now filtering into all aspects of life. As we take a moment to look around at All that we Are, it seems clear that everything is changing; we are just not the same as we were yesterday or the day before. Whilst some of these shifts are subtle, others are far from this as they catapult us forward (and sometimes backward) in life. Such big shifts tend to happen for a reason; perhaps we have been choosing

Eyes Wide Open

It’s amazing what we see when we open our eyes. There are many reasons why we choose not to move through life with our eyes wide open: from fear to closed-mindedness, from distractions to over-focusing. It seems that for many of us, to make a conscious choice to open our eyes involves facing some, or all of these, head-on. So many of us go through life with our eyes so firmly focused on the path ahead and on the things we want to reach towards and achieve, that we lose sight of the wonderful scenery that we pass along the

Over Should-ing The Self

Embracing the path to Self and living consciously are both central missions on the pathway of life; they twist and turn around one another, for to have one, opens the doorway to the other, and vice versa. Yet, whilst we can feel a connection to both of these, it is somewhat harder to become ‘one’ with them. Being human tends to complicate matters, for we seek out understanding, and, at the same time, we can become overwhelmed by the pressures of life. Responsibilities, should’s and ought’s can take hold and these can sap the passion and zest from even the
