  • Are You Truly Listening to The Angels?

    Posted Mar 1st, 2012 By in Blog With | No Comments ANGEL blog post

    A Guest Blog by Stewart Pearce

    The Angels of Atlantis want to drench our lives with their inter-stellar intelligence, suffused with the purity of their unconditional love.

    They hover, waiting to show us that we are simply much more than that we first thought, felt or imagined. For they wish to bring us into direct communion with The Source.

    They wish to diminish within us the notion that we are separate from the ALL THAT IS.

    So can you allow yourself to be bathed in their presence?

    The Angels use this extraordinary time to encourage us to reinvent the wheel – that is to shift our perspective from the fixation we have with being alone. They wish to recalibrate our vision, so that we feel the connectivity of the Galaxy, and they pledge assistance to our restless creativity for one measure only, to aid us in our relationship with the divine.

    A separation took place from the ALL THAT IS in the sixteenth century during the era known as the ENLIGHTENMENT, when the materialists flatly refused to honour that the Universe had a Soul.

    Ironically, this occurred just after the second most significant wave of Angels the planet had ever seen, that being the Italian Renaissance, when great Artists captured Angelic nature in their beautiful paintings.

    For example observe the Annunciation of Mary by Raphael, or the depiction of Heaven in the Sistine Chapel by Michelangelo.

    Now the Angels are with us once again in another time of Renaissance, as many of us are feeling that we stand on the brink of a massive change, a shifting point of Divine proportion.

    You see the space between God and Man is decreasing, the light-years between the Galaxy and Planet Earth are diminishing, the chasm between the Light and the Dark is morphing, and the void between Love and Hate is lessening.

    Within this transition lies a path towards super-coherence – an opportunity to dispel the urge for separation, and instead we can become fifth-dimensional beings.

    Living thus, we will glimpse our soul’s inheritance as a portal to inclusivity – a transition that does not need to be accomplished alone.

    Although many of us have sought healing over the years, and have taken responsibility for our sorrows and pains, waking to the notion that healing means a movement back to wholeness; Jungian Analysis has brought us the compelling nature of individuation, and simultaneously produced a level of personal independence that can overly-control our lives. If so, we then wake to the notion that we’ve created another point of resistance and in this sense a false sense of exclusivity.

    The point is we don’t need to relinquish this resistance alone, for the Angels are stirring us through their eternal love to recognize that We and the Universe are evolving together.

    They urge that we imagine shades of experience, rather than the force of opposites, encouraging us to at last see ourselves free of limiting thought patterns. For in the fifth dimension we will feel ourselves forever experiencing the oneness of all as a heightened state of interdependence.

    Inevitably, this will alter our expression and understanding of the free-will arena, because the either/or perspective will become diffused into the ever-evolving Oneness of the eternal present.

    Not that duality will cease to exist, for if we are to truly know ‘freedom of choice’ – the motivational driver of our existence – this evolutionary trigger will need to be with us to diminish any passivity or inertia. Can you imagine what it will be like to see the world through the Eyes of Source?

    This is why the Angels refer to us as being the Dream Weavers of the Universe!

  • Music – Life – Spirit – Love

    Posted Feb 9th, 2012 By in Blog With | No Comments Love

    A Guest Post by Russell Leak

    A note, a chord or a song can change your being. It can move you, lift you, make you cry…and even make you laugh out loud!

    Since ancient times music has been used to alter states and rouse nations. There’s something in music that goes way back in us, back to the shamans and the drums – back to the first person who worked out how to string a hollowed out log.

    Music has been a powerful and transformative part in my life and I used to believe it was the same for everyone. However, as I was vexing passionately to a friend about a new album from my favourite band he said “I’m not really into music…occasionally I just buy a tape for the car!” What???  I could hardly believe his total lack of interest in music. Then I remembered that he was also a football fan and that he used to sing his heart out every Saturday on the terraces!

    So I guess music really does touch us all – in one way or another…even if we are blissfully unaware of its powerful effects.

    Maybe because it’s wired in us in some way – woven into our DNA. Getting briefly technical; the Pentatonic scale consisting of 5 notes that can be heard in pretty much every culture of music including Chinese, Arabic, African, Blues…everywhere in fact. In those ancient caves, the ones with the animal paintings made by men from 20,000 years ago they found flutes made from a vulture’s wing bone, and low and behold; the scale is Pentatonic. Natures’ natural rhythms…the beat of the wing, the rhythm of the waves and the delicate chimes in the wind.

    Life itself has a natural rhythm too. It goes up and down. Sometimes we are happy, sometimes sad, and sometimes it throws us around so much we start to feel a kind of motion sickness. “I want to get off” or “I just want some stability,” we find ourselves saying. So we choose something quiet or gentle, we settle for less until the rhythm becomes a steady hum. At this point we might choose to get back on the ride and find a little excitement again. As one of my favorite song writers said “if their lives were exotic and strange, they would likely have gladly exchanged them for something a little more plain, maybe something a little more sane.”

    So through this chaos of life’s ups and downs, we start to look for a sign, a reason and a strategy for coping. We follow the wise words written by the ancients. We meditate knowing that we are searching to find ourselves. We remember those wise cracking gods who thought they’d have a laugh and store the secrets deep within us. How can we go looking inside for ourselves when the whole world is distracting us? It throws us daily emails, glowing lights and 3 minute videos! People start to say “With all this science and technology I don’t believe in God, I believe in matter, I want what’s solid, but I’m sure I have a soul somewhere…I have to have something more within me. Don’t I?”

    If you spoke to someone, just as they were turning off their bedside light at the end of a busy stressful day, and asked “What was your absolute best moment of the day?” I’m sure most would enthuse; “Well I had a real laugh working with my colleagues” or “I hugged my man as he realised he’d made a mistake” or “I kissed my sleepy child as she gave in and let the dreams take her” …or, some other wild and crazy act of love. Love is a mysterious and wonderful expression of our existence that makes us question, write, sing, express and confuse ourselves on a daily basis.

    With all these conflicting thoughts it’s sometimes hard to find calm in the chaos of our minds. Perhaps a song can transform us, maybe a book, a poem, or a smile.

    Or maybe a talk from a couple of crazy guys who have been around the block, learnt a bit about life – and want to share it with you!

    Russell Leak will be sharing the stage with Andy Dovey at Naked Dragon on Wed 15th Feb.

  • A Little Something to Help You Make the Most of 2012

    Posted Jan 23rd, 2012 By in Blog With | No Comments 2012

    A Guest Post by Davina MacKail

    Between now and the full moon on February 7th is a great time to manifest your intentions for the year.

    It’s great to set your big goals and dreams in motion. But I’d like you to focus on something else as well. Something far more important to your daily flow of peace and joy and something that is far more likely to help you ultimately achieve your big dreams.

    That something is “What you LOVE to do“.

    It’s extraordinary how often we ignore this even when we think we’re actually doing it.  Often we’re so focussed on our big dream we forget our daily happiness.

    To connect with what you LOVE find a time when you’ll be undisturbed and sit with yourself.  Spend a few minutes just relaxing. Take a breath in above your head and exhale below your feet and repeat a few times.  Now with your non-dominant hand resting on your heart to remind you of where this information is coming from ask yourself “What do I really LOVE?” and keep asking yourself until you can tune in to that energy and get the flow going.

    Relax and allow time for this exercise.  If you’ve been really out of touch with yourself lately it’ll take a while for you to remember what you really love – not what you think you should love or achieve or have but what you REALLY LOVE deep down in your soul.

    To give you an idea, some of the things that I truly LOVE in life include;

    Walking in the woods

    Playing my drum

    My morning cappuchino especially if my husband goes to get it for me:)

    Afternoons curled up reading a novel

    Going to the cinema

    Catching up with good friends

    Rainbows

    Hugging trees

    Dancing by myself

    Making up silly songs whilst driving

    Long, indulgent bubble baths…

    Once you unleash your soul there’ll be no stopping you!

    You’ll also discover that what your soul loves rarely costs much money – so this is a gift you can truly afford. Capture all your deep loves in a notebook and promise yourself that:-

    2012 will be the year you give yourself the pleasure of something you truly love every single day.

    I wish you all a truly joyful and courageous 2012

  • The Gift of Our Dark Side

    Posted Nov 12th, 2011 By in Blog With | No Comments connectingwithourshadowselves

    Guest Post by Davina MacKail

    How do we manage to develop a dark side after landing on this planet in all our abundant glory?

    Watch any toddler. They can be happy, angry, sad, and giggling all in the space of a few minutes.  They don’t hold on to, or repress their feelings. They fully express themselves in the moment.  They exude 360 degrees of radiance.

    Then the trouble starts!

    As we grow, we get socialised into our cultural karma. We’re taught by our parents, teachers, neighbours and peers, the “right” way to behave.  We learn by direct communication and indirect influences, the differences between right and wrong – as imposed by our culture.

    Such messages as “boys don’t cry” or “good girls sit with their legs crossed,” become ingrained into our malleable young minds until they become part of how we are.  We learn quickly that certain behaviours get rewarded – and others get punished.  There will always be a small majority of escapees; the rebel drop outs and anarchists amongst us. But the majority of us opt for the easy life of reward for good behaviour.

    But those hidden aspects of ourselves don’t just disappear. They simply get tucked away, deep inside – repressed – or at least unexpressed. We’d be lying if we denied experiencing those emotions and feelings we may not publicly admit to; jealousy, anger, fear, vulnerability, guilt, shame – and a myriad others.

    Instead, these unacknowledged aspects show up in our external environment. The handy thing about living in a holographic universe is you get to see all of yourself mirrored constantly in everything around you.  This is especially true of our relationships; in particular those closest to us, and certainly in those who annoy us, or who we deem to be our enemies.

    Shadow relationships are instantly recognisable; even if we don’t always understand the reflected messages. They’re the ones who produce an excessive energetic reaction. The ones who make you feel out of control as your internal feelings conflict with your need to be well behaved.  Your cultured mind argues that you have no right to your negative emotions, but the churning in your stomach says otherwise.

    We don’t understand these emotions, and feel “bad” about having them; especially when the person isn’t really doing anything “wrong”. It’s just that their very existence irritates us.  As a result of our reward and punishment cultural conditioning, we tend to blame the person who’s “pushing our buttons.” It’s “their fault!” We’re just minding our own business!

    It’s an insidious plot – although it looks plausible.  Friends and family will offer their support.  People will take sides, and inflamed emotions will escalate; robbing us of our energy and creative power.

    Yet that person who’s irritating us is a huge gift. They are kindly mirroring aspects of ourselves that we’ve disowned or made unconscious. To paraphrase master psychologist Carl Jung, “Until we bring the unconscious – conscious – it will rule our lives and we will continue to call it fate”.

    By recognising and owning for ourselves the behaviours we see reflected in others, we experience the truth that there is no other and nothing goes one way.  This releases us to be more fully realised within our authentic selves.  Only then can we regain our creative energy and power and live the lives we were born to live.

  • An Inspirational Life

    Posted Apr 23rd, 2011 By in Blog With | 4 Comments An inspirational Life

    What exactly does it mean to live an inspirational life?

    Do we need to rely on other people or external influences to inspire us…or does our inspiration come purely from within?

    In my experience,  it is a mixture of both.
