The Festival of The Heart! Digital alchemy for a New Earth

 

 

Dear friends
The Festival of the Heart is here, in its new, transformed and alchemised form!
As we enter the new era, reorient our lives and are ready to start new adventures, take on new responsibilities, play new roles, expand our energy into the new Earth, here is my offering to you.

The festival of the Heart has been alchemised into becoming a world in itself, a world I have created for the transition from the old into the new, a world for exploration, transformation, adventure; for helping you set your sails towards the new – on the highest possible path, with the highest possible potential, with the highest possible love, peace and harmony.

Together we create The New Earth – this is true, and as we spread our wings across the world, together we can alchemise the old Earth into the new. 

The World of the Festival of the Heart is a world of the alchemy of love. Just like in your heart, there are many hidden treasures here. The clues will reveal themselves to you when you look and listen with your heart.

There is alchemy for the past and alchemy for the future. There is the alchemy of freedom, the alchemy of harmony and the alchemy of peace.

But more than anything, there is the alchemy of The New Earth.

 

You can listen to the first track here

 

In my original description of the Festival of the Heart I wrote:

The heart has the magical, alchemical ability to transform the past into a force for new growth, new directions, new beginnings; to transform challenging experiences into wisdom; and ultimately to transform pain into love. There is no limit to what we can achieve when we set our hearts free, when we allow the heart to work its magic.

Throughout millennia, humanity has celebrated the forces of the heart – renewal, regeneration, rebirth, new life – in many different ways. Just as we are part of the cyclical, regenerating ecosystems of the Earth, so is our heart – both literally and figuratively – from the physical renewal and re-oxygenation of our blood, to the processing, transmutation and new growth of our inner emotional landscape. The transformative alchemy of our heart mirrors the transformative alchemy of nature.

So this year the theme for the Festival of the Heart is
‘The Heart of the Earth – The Heart of Me’

Drawn from the spirit of the ancient Mesopotamian festivals of spring, celebrating their New Year – the end of an old agricultural cycle and the beginning of a new – the Festival of the Heart 2020 is a contemporary celebration of the power of the heart to take the remnants of the past and from that create new life, new inspiration, new joy, new adventures!

 

This is still true, and in the World of the Festival of the Heart we go back in time to the ancient Levant, to the ancient Mesopotamia, to a past that holds the seeds of potential for the deepest, truest alchemy for the future; through our deep soul remembering we can reconnect to the alchemy of the soul, the alchemy of the heart and the alchemy of the Earth.

 

The Festival of the Heart consists of 6 tracks:

  1. The World of the Festival of the Heart
  2. The Goddess’s Story
  3. The Gardens
  4. The Ancient Heart Alchemist – Part 1
  5. The Ancient Heart Alchemist – Part 2
  6. The New Earth

    Total running time is 4 hours.

    With me on this journey I have had my good friend Janet Treloar who channelled the Ancient Heart Alchemist himself – Zac (Djwal Khul) in a long, powerful, inspiring and intriguing conversation with me about
    ✧ co-creating with the Earth
    ✧receiving the Earth’s secrets for the future
    ✧how nature perceives itself and humanity
    ✧ about our relationship with nature and its inherent potentials
    ✧ about the powerful transformative abilities of the heart
    ✧  the creative synergy between the heart and the soul
    ✧ the power (and challenge) of becoming love
    ✧ co-creating a New Earth…..
    ….and much more!

I hope you will enjoy entering into The World of The Festival of The Heart!

Yes I would like

 

 

Finally, I would like to share with you this channelled message I was given a couple of months ago. It speaks of the new era and this new world we are co-creating. 

There is a new world coming. There is a new time coming. It is full of the promise of spring.
There is joy to be found in it. There is peace to be found in it.
There is love to be found in it.

All the hardship of the past will be over.
All the struggle of the past will be over.
All the disappointment of the past will be over.

There is a new dawn coming. A new dawn on humanity, on Earth.
A new dawn forever.
The dawn of life, the dawn of new life.
No more will suffering prevail, no more with hardship prevail, no more will the cycles of trauma prevail.

The pain of the past will be no more.
The loneliness of the past will be no more.
The futility of the past will be no more.
The broken dreams of the past will be no more.

A new dawn is coming.
A new spring is coming.

I look forward to you joining me in The World of The Festival of The Heart! 
Together we will go back in time, and into the future.

Together we Create The New Earth!

 

 

Big transitions, big emotions, big leaps into new adventures; The power of the heart, the rage and the rise of the new divine feminine and masculine.

Dear friends
The topics for my events are always the result of what I am guided to focus on at that particular time period, and I know that the collective of guides and helpers who work with me know what may be helpful and relevant as we move through the astrological constallation cycles as well as other energetic changes on Earth. I sometimes don’t know exactly why a particular topic is highlighted to me but I have learnt through many years of close collaboration with my guides that I can trust them, that I can surrender to the divine. 
 
I have had to take many leaps of faith on my spiritual journey (and I’m sure more are coming!), sometimes feeling like I was in freefall. But what I’ve also learnt is that a leap requires a moment of freefall – otherwise it’s not a leap. You cannot take a leap of faith if you insist on keeping one foot firmly on secure ground at all times. 
When I was inspired to call my next talk ‘Sacred Rage – Constructive Anger’ it was a kind of leap of faith. I had a pretty good idea of what I could talk about, but I felt there was more to come into the picture for this period we are in now, and I am seeing more and more context as we are getting closer.
As I have talked and written about before, there was in the human collective consciousness a kind of turning point around the time of the summer solstice. There was an ending of a very long karmic cycle on Earth – tens of thousands of years this has been running – and there are also endings of shorter cycles that have been running within the longer one, it’s all a bit like clockwork with bigger and smaller cogs. Some cycles may have been only a few years long, but on a soul level will have linked into much longer cycles. 
Souls agree to work through different ‘themes’ within karmic cycles, incarnating maybe hundreds or thousands of times within a cycle in order to experience different aspect of a theme, and to undergo transformations and learning both on a human level and a soul level. This is all part of our soul’s evolution, accumulating experience and being able to synthesise this into wisdom. 
Those of you who are familiar with past life regressions may have experienced that after each incarnation the soul comes ‘home’ for healing, transformation and a period of ‘debrief’ as I like to call it. Our soul has a chance to assess the experiences of that lifetime, what we achieved, what we learnt, what we feel we may need to work on more – perhaps we could think of it a bit like a self-evaluation period after the end of a school year.
A very similar process happens at the end of a karmic cycle – even while we are still incarnate. We are given a chance to assess our experiences during that cycle, what we have learnt from them, how we can gain wisdom from them and not least where we would like to go next, what experiences we want to create for ourselves now that we can move onto new adventures. This debrief / self-evaluation process is available to us all, but it is up to us what we make of it. If we feel that we have completed a chapter, an era or a cycle in our life in some way, perhaps more in our inner development or perhaps in our outer circumstances too, now is a good time to try to integrate the learning available to us from the past and try to use that to help us set our sails for what we wish to aim for in the future.
It’s a bit like ‘Game Over!’ – now which game do you want to play next.
However, life does not feel like a game at all for most of us, and being human is perhaps one of the most challenging things a soul can take on – particularly now in these times of such turmoil on Earth. 
The realisations and insights we get after cycle has ended and we are in our transitional  debrief phase can be profoundly transformational – and that is part of the purpose – but they can also be deeply painful. We may suddenly see clearly things that we had only seen in part before, or perhaps we had seen a distorted, misunderstood version of it. As we begin to see things in a new light, with more clarity, and we join some dots and see a bigger picture, we may also unveil things about ourselves, about others or about situations that can be very difficult to acknowledge, accept and process. All kinds of emotions may arise from this process, including anger or even rage.
As we are in the middle of this cycle of eclipses in Cancer and Capricorn, and they are dancing together in a cosmic interplay to transform all that they represent, we are also being strongly encouraged, almost pushed, to evolve in our own inner Cancer and Capricorn symbolism, and this – as I talked about in my June talk – includes our own personal feminine and masculine energies, our relationship with our parents and our children, our heart and inner world, and our mind and our interface with the outer world. 
So at the same time as the ending of karmic cycles encourages us to look at our past and what we can learn from it, we are also experiencing much that relates to our deepest depths of emotion as well as our conscious and subconscious patterns, our childhood and how it has formed us, how we parent our children, how we parent ourselves, and perhaps how we try to parent other people who we probably shouldn’t parent. 
All of these big topics and many more seem to be coming up to the surface to force us to look at ourselves almost forensically at the moment, and I think this may continue for some time. No wonder we may feel big emotions, big reactions coming up. No wonder we may even feel rage deep down. Perhaps rage against injustice, manipulation, betrayal, exploitation, deception – perhaps rage against others, rage against ourself, rage against the divine even. It’s ok.
Rage can have immense power within it and when we know how to use it constructively it can help us to create huge transformation, liberation, healing and harmony. This is the beauty (and the challenge) of being human – that our wide range of emotion and experience means we can synthesise polar opposites into new creation, a new way, a new path, a new way of being.
When we allow ourselves to feel and express our rage we can also become deeply empowered, it can give us almost superhuman courage, transcendence and growth. And we can reach new heights through consciously choosing love, compassion and forgiveness, starting with self-love, self-compassion and self-forgiveness.
On Saturday 3rd August I will talk about rage, but I will also talk about how this all relates to the rise of the new divine feminine (and subsequently the new divine masculine!), about balance, about courage, about power, about Christ consciousness, about becoming a spiritual warrior and about the rise of the lion hearts. 
 
In the meantime you might like to take inspiration from a beautiful and – in my opinion – very starry, cosmic human who creates music for our time, I feel. The Norwegian artist Aurora’s two songs, The River and Queendom, capture some essence of what I feel are energies currently flowing through our collective consciousness at full speed – to go with the flow of our heart’s guidance, and to allow our heart, our inner feminine, to rise up proudly, unashamedly and be seen as the Queen that she is.

Saturday 3rd August
11am – 1pm
Sacred rage – constructive anger
 
Anger is an emotion that has a lot of cultural conditioning attached to it. Why is anger so problematic? What is it that we – or people around us – fear about anger? Anger has immense power within it, power that can be used constructively or destructively. Anger can be a weapon but it can also be salvation. 
Over the millennia anger has changed history, powered uprisings, ended injustices. Even Jesus felt and expressed anger, as described in the story of the cleansing of the Temple in Jerusalem. 
And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the money changers, and the seats of them that sold doves, And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.
Matthew 21:12–13
For me this story symbolises the anger expressed at the corruption of the sacred, the pollution of the pure, the manipulation of truth. In our time I believe we can relate to this whether we think of it in terms of pollution of nature, violation of places of worship, corruption of democracies, manipulation of human interaction, or the theft of the innocence of childhood. 
In this talk we will look at how we can utilise anger constructively, work with our inner fire power to build strength and resilience, channel it into a creative force for betterment, express it appropriately and unhook it from the associations with shame, weakness or danger. 
Don’t worry, this won’t be an angry talk, and we won’t be raging or breathing fire. On the contrary, this is actually about loving ourselves and loving being human with all our fire power and passion. And how appropriate that we will be doing so at the time of the lion – in Leo season – loving our own lion hearts!
 
I will also allow time for my collective to channel through me, so we may experience more of their wisdom, support and love in whatever form they choose.
The time and place for this talk is
Saturday 3rd August
11am-1pm

A New Earth – A New Me
with Theresa Dahl and Janet Treloar, and our old friend Zac (the ascended master Djwal Khul)
As cycles are closing out and a new dawn arises let us meet to celebrate the rising sun on humanity. Let us welcome the newness, the openness, the expansion, the promise of new creation, and inspire each other to create the new life, the new world, that we hold it in our power to create. Let the new adventures begin!
 
If you feel inspired by this please set this day aside for a magical, inspirational, powerful experience! Our wonderful Zac has some surprises up his sleeve as always, and we are so lucky to have the fabulous Janet come to Salisbury again. I will be channelling energy, and perhaps also messages or some of the ancient soul languages – I allow the divine to work freely through me as always. Talks are also planned for this day event, and more details will come soon! I am still receiving guidance for this day, but I have been given a keyword to reveal for now – alchemy!
The location for this event is a lovely, light and airy village hall in Winterbourne Earls, just outside Salisbury.
Glebe Hall is situated in a location where we can tap into the beautiful and potent energies in the earth that run through this area, and which will support us on this exciting day!
More details to follow soon!

Love, rage and a new dawn rising! New events 3rd & 27th August + ‘Self-love & unconditional love’ recording available

Dear friends
 
As we are on the cusp of the Capricorn eclipse and full moon, and we are coming out of this window between two eclipses, we are about to enter a new era, a new time, a new world in many ways. The eclipses this time may have brought new things into your life, or ‘eclipsed’ old things out, or perhaps you have not felt their influence as strongly as that. Perhaps simply new thoughts, new ways of seeing things, new ideas, new desires, a new direction in more subtle terms. Whatever the case is for you,  I cannot help but feel a strong, yet perhaps quiet, wave of change coming in. Expansion is the key word in many ways – expansion of mind, expansion of heart, expansion of reach in the world perhaps? Expansion of your voice? Perhaps it is time to speak up and share what you wish to say?
At the talk I gave last Saturday on ‘Self-love & Unconditional love’ I set aside time to channel, to give the divine an ‘open mic’ to allow whatever energy, messages or sounds to come through in the moment. I would like to share with you all the message that was given, as it feels so important and inspirational to us all now – a key to the future for humanity. 
 
There is more to you than you think. 
If you knew, if you could see the enormity of your soul, of the expansion of your energy through universes and through time, you would see how powerful you are. 
 
How you have the creator god within you. How you have the universe within you. 
For you are part of the universe and the universe is part of you. 
There is no limit to the universe and there is no limit to you. Because you are love, you are Source, you are endless, you are eternal. There is no limit to your love. Just as there is no limit to the love of God. Have you understood what we talked about when we said that you are Source? You are Source, therefore you are unlimited in your love, in your creator power. 
 
Remember who you are. 
It is time to expand, in your human self. To become ever greater. 
The time for keeping yourself contained is coming to an end. We are in a new era now.
Set yourself free. There is no repercussion from the divine. 
If God – Source – is unlimited, without end, then Source is also freedom. If the universe is unlimited and without end the universe is also about freedom, not being contained, not being limited. 
 
Remember your divinity. Remember that you are the universe. Because love is all there is. 
Source is Love, and if everything comes from Source everything comes from love. And everything can be transmuted back into love. 
Everything can become what it once was – love, pure love. You too.
You came from Source, you came from pure love, you can also become pure love.
 
And the times we are living in now are about becoming pure love without having to return back to Source at the end of your incarnations. You can become love now. You don’t need to eradicate your human self, your individuality, in order to become love.
It is ultimately about remembering what you really are, what you truly are, deep down. 
And to allow the human mind to surrender to that inner knowing that lives in your heart. 
Allow the human mind to surrender to love, the love of your heart, your divinity, your divine being.
Allow the mind to surrender to love, and become love while you are a human being on Earth, for the Earth needs love. The Earth needs your love, The Earth needs the love that you are.
 
And by becoming love, you set yourself free.
You become – you embody – Source on Earth. You bring Heaven to Earth. 
 
You may think you cannot do this but we know you can. 
Why do you think you are here today with us? We know you can. 
Because we can see what you cannot see – yet. But you will.
 
So let go of everything that holds you back from this all-consuming love. 
 
We love you.
 
This time that we are in now is very much about love, about focussing on love above all. For love is the greatest force there is, love can transmute all, transcend all, conquer all.
The events that I organise, and the topics for them, are very much inspired by what I am guided to focus on at the time. It was no coincidence that I could see very clearly that this talk that I gave on the 13th July should be about love. It felt like all-consuming love. 
But it is also about understanding love by understanding what love is not, thinking about our own experiences of love in many different ways, and perhaps to understand how we may have been shaped by a perception of love that is now outdated for us. Perhaps we need to think differently about what love is and how we want to love? Perhaps it is time for radical love? These were some of the themes that I delved into in my talk, and we had a wonderful discussion about love and different aspects and challenges relating to this – and to suffering – at the end, which I am so grateful for. To those of you who were present – thank you! I would also like to thank you for your courage in allowing me to record our conversation so that those who could not make it to the talk can benefit from the insights, questions and ponderings that seemed to grow organically between us.
 
 
Recording available to purchase
‘Self-love and unconditional love – two challenging but essential building blocks for the future’
 
If you would like the recording I am delighted to say that this particular one is available at the discounted price of £5 due to a slight reduction in sound quality (which I apologise for – it will better in future!), and it is a total running time of 1 hour 43minutes, including the channelling and the group conversation at the end. 
If you would like to purchase it please let me know when you have paid and I’ll send you the download link as soon as possible. Payment can be done via this PayPal link or by BACS (please contact me for details).

The next event is coming up in a couple of weeks’ time and as we are expanding our hearts and expanding our love, liberating ourselves from limitations and containment, we may indeed also be able to hold both our unlimited love and our sacred rage. Perhaps it is time to explore further our inner fire power, our deep passion and how sacred rage is indeed an aspect of love and not the opposite. Expansion is also a form of transformation, and every form of alchemy needs a flame.

Dancing with the cosmos, evolving into balance

Dear friends

We have just entered the new astrological year with the beginning of Aries season on the 21st March, and since my last post was about my ‘New Era’ I thought I would share with you a few of the themes and topics I have been channelling and writing about in the last year which I feel are quite relevant at this time, and which I am preparing to publish and also teach in more detail in my ALIYA Soul Evolution courses.

I think many of us are feeling that there is a new era, or a new chapter, coming. We can sense this in the world in general I think, and many people feel this in their lives at the moment. In an earlier blog post I wrote about the end of old cycles, and as we are entering April I think this is being felt perhaps more than ever for many of us. The last few years have been very challenging for some, and may have brought big changes in circumstances, relationships or perhaps more internally. In a broader context – thinking of the last few decades and looking into future decades – we are in the period of ‘the great shift’ which has been prophesied by many cultures for thousands of years. It is known as the Kali Yuga, or the Biblical ‘end times’. It doesn’t mean the end of humanity, but that we are shifting over to a new way of thinking, a new way of being, a new way of living, a new human consciousness on Earth.

We are going through great changes in many different ways, on every level, in our own time and in our own way. We are all unique individuals with unique paths, unique choices, and therefore we are experiencing this time of the great shift differently. This is valuable, this is how it should be as we all afford each other (and ourselves) freedom, including freedom to go through our own unique transformations in our own way. This is what the new consciousness is all about after all – freedom to be our true selves – in our own unique gloriousness, our own unique aspect of the divine, our inner divinity.

We are all living on this planet, we are all living within the human collective consciousness field, and we are all in one way or another influenced by the changing energies of the Earth and the cosmos. The Earth has been raising the frequencies of its energetic field and energy grids (a bit like the energy field and meridians of a human being), and because we all live on the Earth, within this field and grid system, we cannot help but be influenced by it. How we respond to the changing energies is, however, up to us. I am sure we have all experienced all kinds of different responses – embracing the changes, letting go of the old and welcoming the new, almost pre-empting the new even, but also a great deal of resistance, fighting change, clinging to our old ways, fear, distress, indecision, confusion. It is only natural to feel confused or worried when the foundations of your life, your society, your family are falling away, simply not carrying you any longer; when the beliefs and values you were brought up with or based your existence on are shaken, when you find yourself questioning yourself and those closest to you, questioning your faith, your truths.

The great shift encompasses all that the old ways of thinking and living and being were built upon. Going through such a great shift in consciousness, in perspective, is not quick and it’s not easy – whether it is on the level of the individual or collectively. It takes time and it takes active decision making, it takes willpower and persistence. But it is worth it. The new consciousness that we are working towards on Earth will be worth all that we are currently going through. It probably has many names in many cultures, but to me it is what we know as the Biblical ‘New Earth’. If I were to sum up the core of my work in all its expressions I would say that I am working to help create this new Earth.

It is not something that a few select ‘spiritual’ people do, nor is it a special interest topic. The new Earth can only come into full being when humanity as a collective collaborate in all the many ways and formats and areas of work that are needed in order to build a new way of living on Earth, a new way of thinking, a new way of being human. We need scientists, inventors, philosophers, historians, politicians, artists, facilitators, teachers of all kinds, inspirational role models of all kinds, activists, healers, therapists in many different modalities, nurturers, carers, support networks, pioneers, those who break boundaries, those who prove that the impossible is possible, those who change the paradigms in their chosen field, and we need those who can bring information through from other dimensions, other realms, those who can travel between worlds. We need everyone.

We need everyone to be free to find their freedom, their inner voice, their strength, their individuality, their creativity. The new Earth will not be created by a small group, and it will not be handed to us by some external force – whether God or Jesus or aliens or anyone else. We can get all the help and assistance and inspiration we ask for from the divine, and from our brothers and sisters in other realms, but ultimately The new Earth will be the creation of humanity. That is why we are here at this time, that is why we have chosen to be born into this time period on Earth. 

As every ancient wisdom tradition has taught, as summed up by Gandhi, we have to be the change we want to see in the world. It starts with us individually. If we are to build a new way of life on the planet that we all share we need to build a new way of interacting with each other, a new way of being together, a new way of creating together. We have been through thousands of years of living in survival mode, or perhaps a better way of seeing it is ‘survival mentality’. When we think back to our human evolution and how history has played out it is understandable that humanity has needed to have a strong focus on survival. Survival mode often means battle; a battle to survive, a battle for food, a battle for territories, a battle for the resources we need to live. However, when a group experiences repeating cycles of a particular mentality it creates patterns, it becomes ingrained into the psyche, into the collective consciousness, and it creates patterns in the cellular memory, the ancestral lines of inherited information.

Humanity is now at a stage where, if we don’t move out of the old survival mode patterns, we are much more likely to destroy ourselves and our planet due to the advanced technology we have which can be and is being weaponised, and due to the toxins we pollute our ecosystems with. We no longer need to be in the old survival mode for food and resources, in fact we know that we can have all our needs met on this planet if we work in harmony with the Earth and in harmony with each other – if we collaborate rather than battle. We are in a time when it is imperative that we move from surviving to thriving, and we do that by moving out of the old battle mentality and into a harmonious collaborative mentality. This is one of the greatest challenges we are currently going through as humans collectively, and it is also one of the greatest challenges that many are going through on an individual level. But as we know, change starts within, we have to be the change, we have to heal ourselves before we can heal the world.

One of the insights my collective started to give me last summer in relation to this deep change and healing of our old collective patters was about how the solar and lunar eclipses can help us in our process of ‘learning about ourselves’ as they call it. Ultimately, learning about oneself is the foundation for deep healing, enlightenment and ascension. The word ascension seems to be everywhere at the moment, at least within many spiritual communities, and there is much said about this. According to the ascended master Djwal Khul, who is one of my teachers and part of the collective I work with, ascension actually means ‘evolution of the soul’. This is ultimately what ALIYA is about, what we are working towards alongside our work to help create the new Earth.
I must say first of all that I have very little knowledge of astrology, and I am sure many of you may be able to add much to what I am going share here. This was a ‘download’ of understanding from my collective, and I actually had look up a little bit about esoteric astrology in order to get a broader understanding of this.

Around the time of the eclipses last July I was given information about some of the ways we can interpret the specific eclipse pairings that have taken place in recent years and which we are still experiencing. There is much that can be said about interpretation of the symbolism of the zodiac, and I am going to keep it very brief, simple and to the point here. Solar and lunar eclipses occur in pairs on the wheel of the zodiac, with opposing signs ‘dancing’ with each other in each eclipse cycle. For instance, between 10th February 2017 and 20th January 2019 we have experienced a cycle of eclipses in Aquarius and Leo, signs that are opposite each other in the zodiac.

Eclipse cycles tend to last about a year and a half to two years, and when one paring is ending and a new pairing is beginning we have a period when the cycles overlap. So at the tail end of the Leo – Aquarius cycle we got the beginning of the next cycle which was the pairing of Cancer and Capricorn. We had the first eclipse in Cancer 12th July 2018 and this cycle will run until 4th July 2020. Each eclipse is like a highlighted, focussed energy and can often provide turning points that drive us forward. However, according to the brilliant astrologer Pam Gregory the energy of an eclipse can begin to affect us as early as 6 months prior to it and continues to affect us up to 6 months after it. So each eclipse can actually influence us for a whole year in total. When we know that we have several eclipses each year, and that they give us these pinnacles of influence around each eclipse, we can see how it can feel like they are dancing with each other – creating smaller cycles of ebb and flow within the eclipse cycles themselves.

The information that I channelled regarding these two eclipse cycles in particular was that we can look at the symbolism of each sign in the following ways and see how this encourages us to develop and progress in our ‘learning about ourselves’ – our personal evolution.

Leo represents our heart, how we relate to ourselves, who we are in ourselves; it represents going into our heart and asking “Who am I really?” The heart is what links us to our emotions, our core essence and to our soul. It represents who we are deep down when we don’t have to be anything to anyone else. It is about peeling away all distractions, duties and external expectations and just being with ourselves in our heart space and feel who we are then.

Aquarius represents the polar opposite, how we relate to others around us, our identity in relation to others as part of a group or as part of a couple, as a colleague, as a friend and so on. It represents the question “Who am I in relation to others?” and as an extension of that “How do my relationships with others shape me?” It asks us to look at how our sense of obligation to others, our dynamic with others and their expectations of us influence us and who we become in relation to them. It is also about trying to see how we influence others, how we use the power that we have in relationships and how others may experience us, and what duties, obligations or responsibilities they may feel they have in relation to us.

So this eclipse pairing of Leo and Aquarius that we are now in the aftermath of has been encouraging us to examine our relationship with ourselves and our relationships with others and to think about the roles we play, how we feel about ourselves, what our identity (or identities) is based on, what kind of foundations we have built our identity on and what kind of balance we have between our relationship with self and our relationship with others around us. In other words, “who am I in myself?” and “who am I in relation to others?” and how do these identities co-exist? Are they two different personalities? Am I showing others who I really am in myself? If not then why not?

The eclipse pairing between Cancer and Capricorn which started July 2018 is a good follow up to these questions and help us to dig a little deeper into our understanding of ourselves and others. Cancer can be seen as symbolising the mother, or the feminine energy, the yin principle; our vulnerability, our intuition, how we nurture ourselves and others, our ability to transmute the old into creation of the new – the inner cycles of death and rebirth. Capricorn as the polarity to this represents the father, the masculine energy or the yang principle; our boundaries, our power and sovereignty, how we stand up for ourselves and others, and how we align with our own values and principles.

The cosmic dance between these two help us to look at our own inner feminine and masculine, our own yin and yang, how we balance our nurturing, creative, vulnerable sides with our power, self-preservation and independence. Do we have healthy boundaries that allow us to connect with our vulnerability and softness inside? Do we overgive to others while neglecting our own needs? Do we create a safe space for ourselves to explore our inner depths safely, without being exploited, taken advantage of or belittled? How do I use my power? How do I survive, get my needs met? How do I get love and nurture? What feeds me? Do I rely on others for love and nurture? Do I feed from the connection with others? Or do I have self-love and self-nurture?

There are also other aspects to this Cancer – Capricorn dance that help us to go really deep into healing and liberation of our true selves. As representations of the mother and father principles they ask us to continue the questions from Leo and Aquarius and ask ourselves “Who am I as a parent?” and “How have I been shaped by my own parents?” We have all been shaped by our childhood experiences, whether we grew up with our biological parents or other parental role models.

We all learnt something about what it means to be a woman and what it means to be a man, what expectations were placed on us consciously or sub-consciously, and we all carry patterns from our ancestral lines. In what ways have our own parents (and grandparents) influenced us? In what ways do I influence my children or other children who see me as a role model? What am I passing on from my ancestors to my children? And perhaps more importantly from a perspective of healing; how are my own childhood wounds affecting my children? Am I passing on the ancestral patterns of woundedness? What am I teaching my children about what it means to be a man or a woman? What is ‘female’ and what is ‘male’? Do we need to think differently about that?

And then we can also draw a loop back to Aquarius and Leo and ask how are my childhood wounds or ancestral patterns affecting my relationship with myself and my relationships with other people? How are my beliefs about gender influencing me and my relationships? Am I playing roles based on certain beliefs or expectations about gender?

 

As you can see these two pairs of eclipses are encouraging us to heal at a very deep level. They are helping to make the invisible visible, helping us to see what we might not always want to see. They are helping us to find our own inner strength, nurture and love, our own uniqueness, our own expression in the world.

Change is not always comfortable. Healing is not always comfortable. But healing from the past means freedom. It means we emerge more and more as our true, authentic, resilient, creative, sovereign, happy beings that we have a divine right to be. It means we change our perceptions of ourselves, of others, of the world, of what it means to be human. That is a shift of consciousness, and that is how we contribute to the great shift in the collective human consciousness. That is how we individually can contribute to creating the world that we want to live in, the life we want to live. That is how together we create The New Earth.

 

This was a little taster of some of the themes that I have been writing about in the last year which will be examined more closely in forthcoming books and as part of my courses. I will also be sharing more in future blog posts, among other things looking more deeply at what I think of as ‘templates’ of the divine masculine and divine feminine energies and the collective healing and balancing of these; reflections around healthy boundaries; ‘growing up’ spiritually; how we use (or misuse) our power; a critical but constructive look at the current focus on ‘empaths and narcissists’ and the very complex issue of co-dependency and abandonment fear. 

If you feel this looks like it’s getting very depressing, fear not – there will also be much more lighthearted and inspiring blog posts coming, as well as a dip into the dimensions, fractal reality, transmutation and alchemy, a bit of sacred geometry perhaps and maybe even some music! We are after all creating a new and better world so watch this space! In the meantime, why not immerse yourself in the divine love and inspiration that is freely available here. I hope you enjoy it!

New Era

Dear friends
In my July update I wrote that I was taking time out to go into a creative process and to discover what this new ‘era’ in my life will look like. I knew there were books to write, and more development to come for my Aliya courses, but there was still a feeling that ‘everything will change’, and I kept hearing the words ‘new era, not even a new chapter’. It felt like I had to go with the flow that my guides were creating for me.

I am very happy to say that I have been writing, downloading lots of new information, writing and writing some more, but perhaps most importantly I have been co-creating my new life hand-in-hand with the divine. This is something I have come to really appreciate the depth of – to co-create with the divine – in every aspect of life. It is a beautiful dance, but one that requires trust both in the divine and in oneself. I feel very fortunate to have been able to go into such a process, having the time and space to immerse myself in this wondrous and multifaceted (but not always easy!) collaboration alongside my writing (and also refurbish my house at the same time, which was a good way to stay grounded, but more on that in the future).

As humans we tend to want to know the path before we walk it, but the best co-creation with the divine is one where we sometimes surrender to trusting blindly. That is not to say we give our power away, or abdicate responsibility for our choices, our behaviour, our finances, our health or physical safety, but that we allow the divine some space to cook up what we asked for, without us stirring the pots and measuring the ingredients every step of the way. It’s about being clear about what we want (and don’t want) just as much as it is about listening to our guidance; it’s a dance with the divine, not a straight-line race. Sometimes that means we are asked to take a leap of faith, not knowing fully what’s on the other side. Sometimes a leap is the only way to get to where you want to be. A leap isn’t a step, it isn’t on a visible path – it’s a leap, which is why it requires faith.

My life so far has been a series of very distinct and different chapters – all beautiful and wondrous in their own way. It has meant taking many leaps of faith, trusting my intuition and trusting myself, sometimes because there simply weren’t anyone else in my life to take the leap with. Just after my 24th birthday I moved from my native Norway to London. I had followed my intuition, but I had no connections in Britain, I didn’t know a single soul, I had never been here before, I had nowhere to live, only a room to stay in for the first 12 nights. I was doing a 2 month summer course building up a portfolio to try to get accepted at Central St Martins. The summer course was the only certainty I had – everything else was completely unknown. I still remember so clearly coming out of Liverpool Street station from Stansted airport, rising up into the sunlight on the escalators and just standing on the pavement outside, looking at the world around and knowing in my heart that this, this is the new chapter, this is where I’m meant to be, even if I have no idea what the future holds. I was soaking it all up, elated and optimistic and excited! I guess Londoners weren’t used to such a sight, because it didn’t take long before a cabbie stuck his head out, looked slightly concerned and shouted to me “Alright there?”

This was one of many new chapters for me, so I’m used to big new beginnings. And I’ve always been excited about them. But the last year has felt like an even bigger change, a watershed, a BC/AD kind of feel. I didn’t know quite what the universe had in store for me, although I knew it was partly to do with me writing the books, and also working in a different way. I could see some pieces of the puzzle, some strands of the future, but felt there were other things that were being shielded from me for the time being. Sometimes it actually doesn’t serve us to know what’s coming, sometimes the future can only be revealed fully after we have walked the path, taken the leaps, left the old life in the past. So the last year I’ve been trying to follow my guidance as best I could, writing and learning along the way, but perhaps most importantly allowing the transformational process to flow.
For instance, I’ve been pushed to go into really deep states of complete acceptance, allowing, letting go, releasing all attachment to the outcome of a situation. A year ago I lost a close family member, and then five months later another close family member was at the threshold of death for a long period of time. It felt too much, too soon, too close. However, I had to practice (to the extreme) acceptance, non-attachment to the outcome, allowing another soul the freedom to leave, and to try to blend grief with truly unconditional love. I learnt a lot from that. Among other things I learnt that going into a state of non-attachment and unconditional love wasn’t as difficult as I had thought. It wasn’t easy, but with practice it wasn’t as hard as I imagined. It was a game changer for me in some ways, and a few months later when my very dearly beloved dog very suddenly became temporarily paralysed, and then was struggling to walk more than 15 minutes for several weeks, I found that I was able to quite easily go into the same state of acceptance at the thought of him maybe leaving me. I surprised myself at how I had shifted my whole energy into this new ‘ease of acceptance’, allowing those dearest to me to leave me, and knowing that, regardless of outcome, it would be ok. (I am very happy to report that my dog has recovered amazingly and we’re now back to our normal walking routine!)
So, being able to flow more easily with the unexpected or dramatic changes of life, coming into a state of non-attachment and acceptance while still being present emotionally, all this has been a blessing to experience, and probably an important part of transitioning over to my ‘new era’ and all the unknown experiences that the future holds.

So why am I sharing all this? We are in a time of great change on Earth, both globally, nationally and for many people also personally. Sometimes we yearn for the new and are quite happy to let the old ways, the old life, go. Sometimes we are more reluctant, hesitant or even flat out scared of endings, or indeed of the future. Sometimes we want change but we are still quite embedded in the old; we want change but we don’t want change. Humans are creatures of habit, and we tend to prefer safety. We like to know what’s ahead of us before we move forward. But sometimes in life we just have to have faith, take that leap, allow the past to stay in the past, allow other people to leave us, and allow ourselves to leave other people. Sometimes free fall can be the most liberating feeling – liberating and perhaps terrifying all at the same time. But if you are going to take that leap you cannot avoid being in free fall – just for a moment.

Allow your heart and your mind to have equal say, allow them to collaborate, to find a way forward in unison. Listen to your heart’s desire, and allow your mind to help get you there. Most of us have been taught to use our mind to keep our heart in check, to make sure the heart doesn’t operate freely, because that makes us vulnerable (or so we believe). We don’t fully trust the heart. But the key is to find balance, to set the heart free, to listen to it and become aware of what it is telling us. And the mind finds the way to consider what the heart tells us, and to implement it responsibly. Just as we can co-create with the divine, dance with the divine, so can our heart and our mind co-create together – dance together – if they are both free and allowed to come into balance with one another. This is the way forward, and this is the way of the future, the new way of living in The New Era – wholeheartedly.
Happy New Era everyone!
