“We began as wanderers and we are wanderers still. We have lingered long enough on the shores of the cosmic ocean. We are ready at last to set sail for the stars.” Carl Sagan
What an extraordinary time to be alive. As I write this post we’re nearing the solstice on the 21st December, a time when the planets Jupiter and Saturn will align, something that hasn’t happened for hundreds of years. Astronomers say it will open a portal, allowing high frequency energies to reach the planet and birth a new earth.
Whatever you believe, whether you’re into science or spirituality, it’s worth looking up right now. The skies have been beautiful and the energies intense. Do you feel it?
A Cosmic Shift
For the planet, the solstice will be a major shift. And, although this solar event might pass unnoticed by many, this planetary shift WILL change us, whether we realise it or not. Our consciousness will be affected. From a bigger perspective, this cosmic shift, indeed this whole year, has really been about choosing love and faith over fear.
2020 has thrown all sorts of scenarios and narratives at us. It’s forced us to discern what is truth and what is not. But they’ve all been huge distractions. We’ve spent a lifetime seeking the truth and external validation outside ourselves. We’ve believed in the ‘system’ and that our worth was tied up in jobs, status, possessions and in how others perceive us.
What happens when we realise it was all an illusion? That everything we believed was true is not. What happens when we strip away the limited beliefs of who we were always told we were and that we weren’t good enough. Perhaps the answer lies within.
The Energy of Love
When we return to our core, when we open our heart, wholly and unconditionally, we find our true self. Imagine what could happen if we let go, of limitations, obligations, illusions, unleashing our true potential. Perhaps we would discover our intuitive abilities.
When we tap into the realisation that we ARE energy, that’s when we start to creatively manifest. When our energy is positive and based in love we attract positive people and circumstances into our life. It’s time to let all the shit out of our life and BE the energy we want to attract. It’s time to focus on creating an abundant and beautiful future.
What frequency are you on? Is it love and unity or is it fear?
Look around and see through the veil of distraction. You’ll see kindness in the eyes of strangers, love in ordinary moments, colours as vivid as an artists easel and nature that floors us with miracles. Happiness and joy appears in the most simple places.
When darker moods come, as they do, feel them, acknowledge them and then show them the door. Shift back to the now. Replace jealousy with gratitude, grudges with forgiveness and worry with hope. When we can let go of negativity and judgement, shadows turn into light.
When we stay heart centred, we remember a fundamental truth. We were born into love.
Look within and remember your power, that divine essence that you were born with, before society conditioned us. Don’t let mainstream narratives drag you down. Stay away from distractions that promote fear and ground yourself in nature. Do what you love and be kinder to yourself than you’ve ever been before. Be grateful for simple, ordinary things and take a cue from nature.
I love these words from Maria Sabina, Mexican healer and poet. She says:
“Heal yourself with the light of the sun and the rays of the moon. With the sound of the river and the waterfall. With the sound of the sea and the fluttering of birds. Heal yourself with mint, neem and eucalyptus. Sweeten with lavender, rosemary and chamomile. Hug yourself with the cocoa bean and a hint of cinnamon. Put love in tea instead of sugar and drink it looking at the stars. Heal yourself with the kisses that the wind gives you and the hugs of the rain.
Stand strong with your bare feet on the ground and with everything that comes from it. Be smarter every day by listening to your intuition, looking at the world with your forehead. Jump, dance, sing so that you live happier. Heal yourself with beautiful love and always remember … you are the medicine.”
This weekend was my wedding anniversary and, after 28 years married to my hubby, the love and laughter is still strong. Life has changed and so have we, but not the important things. We spent a magical night up in the Dandenong Ranges, in a Japanese inspired haven surrounded by nature.
Aside from relaxing, wining and dining, we walked the Kokoda Track (1000 steps) and visited the awe inspiring William Ricketts Sanctuary, a testament to how the human spirit can co-create with nature. How wonderful is the harmony between Mother Earth and life. We are all connected.
So, tell me, how do you celebrate love? Drop me a comment and let’s collectively fill this space with so much love, joy and radiance it will light up the cosmos.
Be love. Be light.
For the best is yet to come.
Enjoy this cosmic classic, perfect for the times we’re living in.
