Happy Magickal, Manic, Merry, Melodic, Manifesting Monday! How are you delicious lovely? How was your Solstice? Thank you to all of you who shared with me the ritual(s) that you chose to do from B.O.W.S., I really loved hearing about them!
I will say I had one of the most amazing Winter Solstice days I have ever had. It was interesting, as I chose to practice solo (which is not the norm) and the whole day became a living prayer and a full blown ritual. As a lot of you know when my sister was diagnosed with colon cancer, everyday I would go to the beach, pick up a rock offer up a prayer and a blessing and bring the rock home and put it in a bowl. After she passed at the end of July I had a huge bowl of rocks filled with blessings and love – but what to do with them? As I was unsure and I certainly didn’t want to just dump them, I packed them up in a large box and put them in the back of the closet.
Then I realised I needed to create a space, or a container for them – but I had no clue what that would look like. Then all of a sudden a little while ago I received amazing guidance from Spirit and knew what I had to do (keep in mind I had no clue how to do it!). So I built a gorgeous driftwood tree, why driftwood? Because driftwood has been tumbled, rolled, tossed about by the ocean and with all the pounding just gets stronger and stronger. Friends moved a large rock into the center of my circle garden and I created my tree and then bolted it to the rock. I made the roots cascade down and encircle the rock, holding, loving and strong. Then around the base I put all the stones I had gathered for my sister, as well as all the angel feathers that came to me daily when I was at the Hospice with her. I then rolled little wee pinecones, that I had gathered and dried, in almond butter and then seeds as she loved watching the birds come into her garden and I decorated the gorgeous “Tree of Life” with gifts for the birds. Last but not least I twined little white lights through the driftwood branches, so that day or night it is a reminder.
I was so blown away with how it came out and when I lit it up last night, after welcoming in the dark and smudging my home, my heart frigging soared! I sat outside for quite a while just gazing at it and thanking Spirit for the guidance and grinned like a large, plump Cheshire Cat. My whole day had been a living prayer and it was incredible!
Thus, I highly recommend allowing yourself to be guided by Spirit. To have the trust, faith and belief that you may not know the path or the hows, but it all unfolds in a gentle leading, nurturing and expansion.
So here we are the Monday just before Xmas and the start of Eclipse season!
On December 25/26th we experience a Partial Solar Eclipse of the New Moon in Capricorn.
Now if you remember an eclipse can generate an awareness of something larger, running the show and they poke holes in our ego/identity revealing things within us that we have been avoiding or are totally unaware of.
As Forever Conscious shares:- On a Solar Eclipse, a new doorway is opened that helps to push and advance us further on our soul path. Under the energy of the December Solar Eclipse, we are going to be shown a new path. A new way is going to unfold. This new way may appear subtle at first. Perhaps it will begin as a new thought or a new feeling, and then slowly it will shift into taking a new action.
It’s almost like this Eclipse opens a new stream of energy which we can take and download into our lives.How we download it is up to us and where we are on our journey, but all of us are going to be changed, all of us are going to be awakened in some way.
The energy surrounding this Solar Eclipse is abundant and expansive. There are opportunities here to really plant seeds that will turn into the tallest, most luscious trees.
Now with this being a partial Solar Eclipse the energy of this time lasts for 6 months. Be sure to open yourself and welcome in the shifting, awakening energies this Eclipse brings. 2020 promises something different than the years before, and the doorway to this new wave of energy starts under this December Solar Eclipse.
This is a glorious energy to use to start playing with your WOTY! (Word of the Year). My invitation to you is to spend the next week and a half doing some homework (don’t worry you don’t need to buy funky notebooks and multi coloured pens – unless you want to). Take time and really play with the energy and ask yourself “What do I want more of this year?” Now I’m not talking about – “I want more diamonds”, “I want a shed ton more money”, instead go under those and look at the emotion, the feeling state, the state of BEING and play with asking what you want more of and then when I’m back in the New Year (and New Decade) we will unpack WOTY, okay?
Now that I have rambled on and on, let’s go to the reading (lol, some of you may have already done that and skipped the ramble). When I asked the cards who wanted to come and be your guides I was thrilled to see the Blessed Be guides were most adamant. This is a different type of deck, there aren’t guides per se, but there are – if that makes sense. Please let me introduce you to Blessed Be as these guides are new to you and relatively new to me, allow me to introduce them. “May these cards and guides offer you ways to enter into deeper appreciation of your life and its manifold blessings. May you have hope, understanding and kindness. And most of all, may you know deep within your soul, that thou art blessed.”
Ahhhh, perfect guides for us right now! The crystals that wiggled and jiggled to show and shine are Jade – is a symbol of serenity and purity. It signifies wisdom gathered in tranquility. It increases love and nurturing. A protective stone. Apatite – is a dual-action stone, known for its positive use of personal power to achieve goals. It clears away confusion, apathy or negativity, then, stimulates the intellect to expand knowledge and truth, which may be used for personal growth or for the collective good. Last but not least – Rhyolite – is all about self-love, its radiant energy infusing your spirit with pure joy, like an antidepressant but without any side effects! Oh yes and Selenite for amplification and the glorious little throat feathers from the peacocks that wander around here came to join!
Settle in sweetie. Just breathe yourself back into your body. Let the hurly burly of the day just drop off like raindrops into a puddle. Breathe. Be here now, just at this moment. I invite you to see in your mind’s eye the Divine Mother (whatever she looks like to you), breathe. Then imagine her putting one hand on your feet and one hand on your head and saying “Everything between my two hands is beloved and blessed by the Goddess.”Breathe that blessing in, allow it to swirl through you and know how loved you are. Then when you’re ready; pick the card or cards that wish to bless and support you this week.
Did you remember to pick?
Let’s go have a little look see, shall we?
A BLESSING FOR SOLACE AND HOPE
This is a blessing for solace, the comfort that comes in the form of good fortune, strange little moments that bring you back to the sense that the Universe is a place where you are cared for, considered and important, and that this solace bring you hope for the future, and anticipation of the fair things that life will continue to bring you.
Solace is the balm and the antidote to the wounds that life can deliver. It is not personal, for being here is a great gift, and we live in times where, in many ways, we are safer than we have ever been before. But we are fed a diet of hopelessness from our cultures and media sources, until we become overwhelmed with the troubles that seem to surround us. This blessing is for you to find your way back to sweetness. For the flower in bud to release its sweetness, for you to notice the shimmer of light upon water, the sheer pleasure of movement, the ease of a mind no longer racing over problems to be solved, but soft, intelligent, allowing the calm of life to steal back in to your soul.
This is the solace that keeps our hopes alive, the gift of good fortune that reawakens the candle of optimism that is within us, and the delight in the sheer whimsy of being here, and being alive. It is the understanding that there may be little control, but we are no mere pawns in this life – we have our place in the world, and simply with our breathing in and out, we matter, and we are doing enough.
To find solace is to find peaceful moments, small connections, to notice the thousand gifts life has conferred upon us, and it is to again invoke the divinity of existence, without the fear of the future. Let hope give you lightness, draw away the pain, and open you up again to the possibilities, until you begin once again to relish the simple voluptuous truth of being alive.
A BLESSING ON YOUR DAY
“A blessing to bring awareness, to shape and set the energy of the day, and to frame it with light and the possibilities of healing, adventure and gratitude. “
May your soul feel called by the song of the day. May this day be gentle and good, clear and sure, filled with grace and gentle reminders of your own divinity. May the people you meet this day show generosity of spirit, be hospitable and welcoming, and open and candid in all their dealings. May the sky be filled with blue and white, may the green beneath your feet be solid and soft to walk upon. May the rain fall soft and nourishing, and trees whisper to you the secrets that you need to know.
May any challenges you encounter find an answering strength and courage within you, and when you come to your rest this night, may you remember the many blessings this day held, and account for them with the Gods, and be thankful for each of them, no matter how small.
A BLESSING ON YOUR SLEEP
“A blessing for a deep and peaceful sleep, full of wondrous dreams and long hours where the body and brain can focus entirely upon their rest and healing.”
May you find the blessing of deep, good sleep. May it come to you easily, and when your head touches the pillow, and your body stretches out in luxurious freedom, may you begin to drift immediately between the world of the waking and the world of the dreamer. May the slumber that comes be deep, so that all the extraneous sounds about you melt away, and there is only you, and the otherworld we can inhabit when we sleep, an otherlife, where we dream and explore the wonders of lands that will only ever exist within these visions.
May these dreams bring you food for rich thought in the days to come, wisdom to explore, insights in you own consciousness and being, and beauty beyond the waking imagination. May the body take its nourishment from this gorgeous rest, may the bones strengthen and knit, the mind lose its worries and anxieties, and may whatever has troubled you in the waking hours be released for at least a time, as you enter entirely into this realm inhabited by the wonders of your own deeper self.
Ahhh, such lovely blessings and I hope you really take the time to breathe them in and let them become part of you. Wishing you an amazing holiday season. May it be filled with kindness, love, peace, ease and flow. May you always remember that you are precious and important and may you shine your light to remind others of the same. Please practice self care and nourish yourself! I am taking until January 6th off to replenish, relax, rejuvenate and reflect. Thus, let me share a song we end each Kundalini session with.
May the long time sun shine upon you,
All love surround you,
And the pure light within you,
Guide your way on.
Big Blessings, Huge Hugs and Squeezes and see you in 2020.
