My Christmas Message..

Christmas .. Message

 

Here I sit on Christmas-Eve night,

I’ve just logged on and what a sight!

To find my messages full of Love,

Just like our Savior who gave from above-

His only Son so that we could share,

The joy of his birth, and here I stare-

At Angels and Christmas Carolers sing

Oh what Joy to my heart you all  do bring.

 

For my Christmas Day to end this way

Has made it perfect to hear you all say

Merry Christmas Greetings are returned to you

How could I ever again feel ‘blue’?

Your love and thoughtfulness is so kind

As I let you into what’s on my mind.

 

For if we all could spread our Light

The World could Love and be so bright.

I think maybe we have made a start.

For all of us are making our ‘mark’!

All be in a pebble in a small pond

We each of us have forged a bond.

 

So let us all in thought unite

And help the world out in her plight.

There IS more Light than Dark out there

Let’s show the world that we do care.

Just follow your hearts and you’ll never go wrong,

Our Motto is Love let this be our Song.

The Messenger ~ And Thank You To ALL.

My Dear and lovely friends,

Thank you all so very much for your kind well wishes. Your energy and healing thoughts have been deeply felt and appreciated I can not begin to tell you how uplifting your messages have been..

I will in a little while get back to each and everyone of you individually who have commented here. And thank you to all who have pressed like..  In the mean time I am still a little out of sorts, but I am listening intently to the Messenger within.

I have been using my time to write within my journal. Paint and get back to writing poetry and of course walking  out in nature.  I have come to another pivotal point in my journey as my energy field has taken another shift as I move and clear out more emotional baggage which the passing of my Uncle triggered.  His passing opened up yet more emotional doors I had previously thought I had walked through and shut behind me …The Universe obviously thinks I need to walk deeper down some of those corridors, so I have dug deeper into bringing these emotions  into the Light with the help also of my amazing acupuncturist therapist who has been working on my emotional centre.

I will share another poem I wrote yesterday as I tried to explain my emotional journey. I also want to  share a beautiful video which is the creation of a painting in speed time, by the wonderful artist Akiane. Please watch in Full Screen to get the best effect.. 

Her painting so spoke to me as its title also ‘The Messenger’ portrayed how we are searching as we let go of that which we created as each are led to the light. We then  find our way out of the darkened caves of our minds if we stay true to ourselves….And allow ourselves to be guided to the Light which awaits us all.. 

The Messenger Within

Many things act as triggers that occur over time

And it’s hard to condense feelings within this rhyme

The process is different within all of our experiences

When Humanity is changing, and altering in frequencies

~~

Over time we create change through the frequency of Love

You start in your own bubble, as you reach out and above

Those vibrations which are dense on our old physical plane

As Humanity returns to its Christ Consciousness Again

~~

Old aspects of ourselves will be reviewed and then released

These shedding of layers and letting go, never seem to cease

They leave us exhausted as our emotions intensify

The Alchemy is heightened, as our Planets align up high

~~

We look back in memory, observing and letting go

Remembering our Etheric Blueprint in our Light Activating Show

That which you want to know is held deep, deep within

Allowing ancient memories to resurface as the veils begin to thin

~~

The Messenger arrived before whose healing love was spread

We resisted in our separation we hold within our head

This template is now being wiped, as we activate as ONE

Our reality dissolving, Our Sacred Passage has begun.

In Gratitude for all I See

We often forget the wonderful gifts each of us have and so this post is to remind us of our wonderful gifts most of us here use every day and so take for granted,

The gift of our sight. 

Below is a beautiful view of the sun through the clouds. My good friend Svein from Norway who takes amazing photo’s gifted me this image a few weeks ago. His beautiful photo’s of Norway can be found at his Blog  See Norway  

Time has been short to be creative this week on my blog.The poem below I wrote it originally back in 2008.  So I thought I would team up the photo and my poem

I am eternally grateful for the gifts given and I thank you All for sharing them with me.

Dark Sunrise.

 

Here I am at the morning rise

Where all I hear is the bird call cries.

Alone I sit and wait for the day

As I listen for you to come my way.

 

I feel the grass beneath my feet

As yet another day I greet.

The beats of wings I know fly by

As tears escapes away from eyes.

 

I smell the fragrance of the flowers

As I while away the hours

The coolness of the clouds above

The breath of wind as soft as doves.

 

The ruffles of my gown so blow

As in my darkness I do go.

For all of you can see this land

But in my eyes all is bland.

 

The beauty that you see each day

Don’t take for granted this I say.

For some are born in darkened rooms

And all we see is black and gloom.

 

But I see all in my own way

Although for me it’s dark in day

I sense the world through feel and touch

And fragrance too it means so much

 

My Dog to guide, my eyes to me

Right now he’s gone to play you see.

His dedication will not cease.

My Inner vision, I am at peace

 

Sunrise for me maybe dark

But I know your soul, I feel your heart

So judge ye not those like me

My inward sight is my true key.

 

No different from you am I

Just because I see no sky

And yet I feel you turn away

For I was born ‘Blind’ this way

~~

Travelling Back Home.~ Well Dressings~

Well Dressings 2016

Please click the photo’s to enlarge.

I travelled back to the place I grew up last weekend. It brought back so many memories for me. Of a time when I was a young girl with no idea of where life would take me.

Each Sunday I would walk the 15 minutes  distance of the village from our home to walk up to the Chapel where we would go to Sunday School in the Methodist Chapel.  Often we would walk it twice a day on Sunday as we went to afternoon service and evenings on a special occasion, such as Easter or Harvest Festivals..

I  being the eldest of 5 siblings  would  lead my bother and 3 sisters by the hand as we would  Sing in the choir, often being the only choir some weeks. I often think we were made to go, just so as my Mother and Father could get some peace for a couple of hours.

Old Methodist Church Stoney Middleton Now a private Dwelling

On my revisit last weekend I walked that same distance, today however the chapel is no long a place of worship  but converted into a private dwelling.

At one time I would have been able to name every one who lived in our village by name.  Now apart from a few relations and old family’s  still there  most are  now strangers,  

 

Below is where I did the Maypole dance when I was a child with the village junior school. Weaving in and out holding coloured ribbons we would dance in front of the Parish Church St Martin’s. Bunting was spread out between the houses as it is now. We would practice long hours at  Stoney Middleton Primary  School so as we would not get our ribbons all twisted wrongly as we made our webs and patterns  with the ribbons around the Maypole as the boys and girls skipped around.. 

The Nook was where I would do the Maypole as a child

 Back then the older children of the village were allowed to help make the boarders of the main Well Dressing, while the adults created the main body of the wells. I am unsure as to how the village now organises its creation.

So what is a Well Dressing?  

Stoney Middleton Well Dressing 2016

Stoney Middleton Well Dressing 2016

A Well Dressing is an old custom that the Village of Stoney Middleton has now been taking part in for the last 80 years. It is the Thanksgiving for the Spring water supply that dates back to ancient times of 1600 BC when the Peak District was occupied by a tribe of people called the Brigantia’s  who took their name from Brigantia ( the Holy One ) a Goddess who was a protector that formed a bridge between the Spiritual and Material Worlds.  Below her lay many lesser’] ‘Deities’ who were believed to be embedded in stone and Trees. The most special of these were the Rowan and the Oak trees. But also Water that sprung from the wells from out of the Limestone and grit-stone was revered

Many of these Springs were warm.. And the one in Stoney Middleton  pictured here with this beautiful  Woodpecker which my nephew  designed Here  is a Thermal Spring. ..

Welldressings over Natural Spring This spring feeds the old Roman Bath House the temp' of the water is a constant 63 degrees,

Well-Dressings over Natural Spring. This Thermal Spring feeds the old Roman Bath House the temp’ of the water is a constant 63 degrees.

 These springs were thought to come from the fiery underworld. The Spring Here is a constant temperature of     63 Degs even in winter. And today as back in my  younger days, many of the villages would take there cars to the trough that overspills onto the road leading to the cemetry and wash their cars in warm water.

So back in those ancient times effigies were placed along with offerings near these caves and springs as the water was felt to have healing properties .  Which led to the wells being dressed on May the 1st as an offering to the spring festival of Beltane  as springs of flowers and branches would be left to honour Spring. The custom progressed within the  Christian Churches  which is carried on today called Well Dressing Week.

Many of the villages grow flowers in their gardens and allotments specifically to collect the petals and leaves.. The frame is made and filled with clay mixture.. When I was a child the adults would soak the clay in the local brook. And Everyone would have to work quickly, often we as children would carefully peel the petals so they were separated and we were allowed to do certain parts.. While the main picture was done by the adults who knew what they were doing. All of this is done voluntary.

 

Events are scheduled throughout the village week.. With Tug of War,  Brass Bands, Maypole Dancing, Treasure Hunts, Cake stalls and competitions, while others have made cards, sell plants, and seeds and all proceeds are shared out among village projects  and charities.

Below you can see the separate Petals used, and the seeds, pebbles, bark, leaves and stems used to create the Picture forming the Well Dressings.

Here is the restored Roman Bath House..

 More can be found here about the Roman Baths and Stoney Middleton HERE

We walked around some of the village reminiscing as we went . Here I used to walk to the shop which was at the time of my childhood one of two in the village. We also had a Post office and 3 Pubs back then.. Sadly this is the state of the front of the Old shop now..  There are no shops or Post Office in the village now.. The nearest shop and post office is in the next village or local Town..  And there is only now One Pub left in the village which is the Moon Inn.. which is steeped in its own History and Dark Past which can be found HERE.  A sad state of the times as people bought the house attached to the back but as yet have let the front shop fall into decay. 

Old shop and One time Post office

Before we left we went to say goodbye to some old family and friends who are  no longer with us but who are close to us in spirit, And I said good bye as I reflected how quickly these last 41 years have sped by since I left the village for good when I got married in 1975..

Reflections of a time so loved..

In Gratitude

Tranquil Garden

Sitting in the garden, as Blackbird sings her tune,

Summer is here, as we welcome the month of June

Foxgloves are in flower, as the Bumblebee explores

And new growth is around us, this time I just adore.

 

The fountain in the garden is tranquil, hear it flow

As peacefulness surrounds me, As I drift in Sun’s warm glow

The wind chimes they do tinkle, and the breeze just gently blows

And the pigeon in the tree top her cooing never slows

 

A neighbours cat is cooling, laid out beneath the shade  

Oh how I love these tranquil, peaceful lazy days.

The grass appears much greener, or is it just my eyes,

For when we are contented, nature gives us our best prize.

 

We just have to take a moment in quiet thoughtful pose

To enjoy the bliss around us and be thankful I suppose.

Do we ever take a moment to give our heartfelt thanks?

For somewhere people are fighting and living with enemy Tanks.

 

So Bless those quiet moments of peace within your home

For you never know when it could be shattered,

 and darkness soon enclose

So enjoy the moments of each bright new sunny day

As we say goodbye to rain clouds in this last day of May,

The above poem I wrote some time ago. The rain clouds are still here, but I choose to find the Sun in All that surrounds me.

May we all of us count our blessings and send out our thoughts of love into the world for those who find themselves in need of it right now.

I am so grateful  right now and thankful  to be able to go within my Gardens , for the healing they bring, and the Inner Peace that I find within them.

Garden on the front

Part of our Garden through the bedroom window on the front of our home

Have a beautiful new week,  and remember

“Live

And Work

but do not forget to play,

to have fun in life

and really enjoy it”

‘The Dawn of Change’

Thank You! to you ALL for your Drum Beats

My Dear beautiful friends,

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your wonderful contributions recently that you have made to my posts. Your comments have brought me so much love.. They have brought both smiles and tears of joy in your understandings of how our Journeys are bringing us together right now.. 

I was going to post I had scheduled but it can now wait for a little while longer. I  just have to share the last comment upon my post  February Awakening Challenge about finding Joy.. 

You all have added Joy to my life.. I have not been visiting as often to your posts as I have took time out to nurture.. But I hope in the next few days pay all of you who have left me your love a visit to catch up with what you have been doing all week.. 

A dear blogging friend Nadira left me such a wonderful comment that it encompassed all of you, I feel I have to share her words with you.  For we are all upon this path of enlightenment to find ourselves.. And so many of us are now awakening to this process and joining our hearts and minds in Unity of thought 

I thank all of you for the energies you bring, and leave you with Nadira’s words

Thank you all for your Drum Beats

Thank you all for your Drum Beats

 

“Here’s me adding a beat to your drum 🙂 I’ve been reading your post on this lazy Sunday morning on my desktop, while the strains of native American music is filling the air from another window open to the You Tube and it has filled this hour with so much peace and love….The comments from others, each remembering the paths of their own awakening…it feels like we’ve all reached a vast open green meadow on the top on a mountain, under blue skies and we’re dancing hand in hand in a large circle of love and empathy. We can see the different trails by which we reached here and remember the sweat and tears and uncertainties that plagued us.But the stones no longer prick the soles of our bare feet, our lungs no longer feel constricted by the effort of the climb; loneliness doesn’t haunt , for we now know that the perception of separation was just that and that had we really listened, we would’ve been able to hear the footsteps of others around us , also plodding along to reach here. Yes, it is important that you write of this open space , so that the others still climbing know that eventually this is where all have to and will reach. What a relief it is to know that our own energies of love can make the miles disappear. Loads of love dear friend :-)”

Thank you Nadiar and to each and Every One of you,

and know each of you are making great strides in bringing Unity and Love into our World.. 

Love and Blessings

#Blesstival~ Lessons in disguise

This is part of Jamie’s Blesstival Wave for the New Year,over at Sophia’s Children where we are spreading our Blessings around our community from January 1st to February 22nd.. You can join this wave of Blesstival at

Blog Blesstival – Create a Blessing Wave to Start the New Year

Where there are more places to uptake.. There are so many Blessings we take for granted..  I have contributed by writing a poem I chose today to post my entry as I would have been my Dad’s Earth Birthday..

Thank you to both my Parents- You taught me very different Lessons in Life But each a treasured Blessing.

Happy Earth Birthday Dad..

Look for the blessing in all situations. - Wayne Dyer

Blessings

If I were to count my blessings and list them one by one

My list would stretch forever for it would take that long

So I’ll start with just a few of the important things to me

And hope you don’t get bored with the list below you’ll see.

~

I need to go right back to the time when I was just a girl

To all that I was taught that in later life unfurled

I need to thank my Dad, and yes my Mother too

For without my childhood growing, I would not love as I do

~

My Dad taught me about Nature’s Garden and how to Love and Respect

My Mother taught me independence and the things we often neglect.

Like showing appreciation to the ones we hold most dear

And not taking life for granted through arguments and tears

~

I’m thankful for the Blessings that at the time I lacked

For they were my greatest teachers in hindsight looking back

They moulded me for life, they made me reach in deep

So I can now share the Blessings that surround me that I keep

~

The most important Blessing that I learnt from my past

Was to find my inner strength, and to love myself at last

Some are not so lucky, and are lost in pain and blame

I’m blessed to release those lessons, embracing life’s great flame

~

So my greatest gift is LOVE, in all its shapes and guises

It’s what we each seek, and I’m lucky to have found its prizes

And if we share more Love, from which we all were born

Just maybe our hearts could heal-A world that seems so torn.

~
