The Messenger Within

I am guided to write this late evening, as we enter more energetic shifts within our consciousness. Know that we each affect the whole, and as many of my regular readers here know, we have all been doing our own Inner Shadow Work over the years, as we have shared our stories via our own individual journeys. We have done this by clearing out the debris of emotional trauma we have held onto as we have healed from within.

Many of the things I wrote quite a few years ago, like this poem below, hold much more meaning to me today than ever before.

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.

Lots of us are feeling the Energy Shifts and Frequencies in some forms or another… For myself at this time I have always trusted my inner guidance.. My ‘inner Knowing,’ my inner compass, has kept me in balance, as I navigate through these times.

I Know within that inner knowing, we each came here to experience these shifts in consciousness, through our various individual choices and actions. For some I know these changes we are here to witness will be, and have been more than uncomfortable for many.

The Earth is undergoing her own birthing process at the moment, and is clearing out many wounds, trauma and deeply held secrets.. It matters not if you understand what I write here or not. I know those who have been guided to read my words right now, understand on a deeper level that we are going through a collective change on many levels, which are affecting emotions and energies, and our whole way of Be-ing.

So how do we navigate through these uncertain times?

I can only tell you how I deal with such shifts, for it is not up to me to tell anyone what to do, how to be, or how to act. For you each hold your own free will, to BE as you wish to BE. I stay centred and calm, by trusting in my intuition and not getting caught up in the drama’s we are about to witness play out. And we may see many dramas which may trigger fear-based reactions. I am fully aware of the world events surrounding me. Yet I observe the Play being played, rather than getting caught up within its story.

We each hold that Messenger within.. It leads us right to our God Source, Our consciousness, our Conscience.. We each instinctively know right from wrong. So, I go out within nature, with a nutural heart, I try not to judge, but reflect and hold peace and compassion for all that is unfolding. For I understand that the New Earth has to be birthed by clearing out the old foundations which many corrupted systems were built upon. The more of us who can hold the frequencies of love and compassion, tolerance and peace, the greater is our assistance to the collective field.. And the easier will be our transition through, to Light up the shadows which are in need of exposing. Remember, the Earth is also transmuting her own frequencies and clearing out the Debris from her Emotional Waters… Remember we each hold tremendous power of manifesting our Destiny. So, do not be surprised if we see Gaia churn out some of her own debris as she clears her own energy Grids..

But You Can Always Choose What Goes on Inside

The Web of Life ~And Death of the Old.

“Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.”

Chief Seattle

 

Spiders Web 1

Time seems to stand still, as I revisit again words I wrote in 2012. I not only marvel on the web of life , but how in the last ten years since writing these words, how everything seems to come full circle. For ‘Time’ is irrelevant when all things are in the Now!.. Confusing?…. Maybe to some, but maybe my ponderings in 2012 helped me evolve into my now space. As I see the emerging patterns we created, and how those explorers of Energy, Time, Grids, Ley lines, and the Ethereal are all bound together as One.

Below is what I wrote in 2012.

oooOOOooo

I often marvel at Spiders and their Webs. Often appearing as if by magic over night as they weave away creating a master piece of intricate fine threads. I once watched the beginnings of the making of a spiders web as she spun away. At first glance, seemingly no method as lines are anchored here and there making you wonder just how did they attach them to such places.

So too is the Web of life with the many threads in which we weave. Often we take various routes along our journey, not always understanding the direction our paths are leading us. And it often isn’t until we have completed various stages in our Life’s Plan that we can begin to see a pattern emerging.

I am often within my talks speaking about Energies, and how we are all of us connected within that Energy Grid.. Just like the Spiders Web, so too is our Earth connected via various Energy Grids, Ley Lines, and the Megaliths and Pyramids and Energy spots such as the Bermuda Triangle along with various other places are all now known scientifically to be connected via Grid lines around our Globe to specific points that are in line. ( Go look them up).

Many people are sceptical, But just because we can not see something doesn’t mean its not there. This is why many deny the existence of Spirit and Guides, etc. I can vouch first hand at saying without a doubt that our Spirit World does exist, and is not UP or OUT there, but is right here, among all of us and we are all of us connected via the cords of our Being, our Consciousness. We may not see the Breath we breathe in, but we cannot deny it is there.. It is natural and exists. So too do different Dimensions within this reality.

Spieders Web2 I Marvel at the web, its structure as it’s built to allow the wind to blow through and water droplets to hang from it as well as to catch its food. It is Strong enough to withstand a good wind, and yet all to often they get destroyed and the poor old Spider has to start again. I try now to avoid destroying anything, and especially a Spiders Intricate Web.. for I think just how long it took to make, all that effort as she starts again from scratch. 

What we see, and do not see, may just be a matter of perspective. To the Caterpillar who crawls about the cabbage patch all day, his world is a maze of Cabbage leaves, he sees nothing much beyond.. It isn’t until he transforms and becomes the Butterfly that he then sees a whole new world. So too as we transform and alter our way of perception we will see many new things and possibilities unfolding before our eyes. As we begin to understand our Reality is not what we perceive it to be.

Some people are more gifted at accessing those realms which others cannot see, And many young children see through the veils of those dimensions until our well meaning adults tell us to stop imagining things,  telling us they do not exist as they play and talk to their invisible playmates.

All of us have this ability to see, given an open and willing heart anyone can tune into those invisible realms and begin to find their way.

The Web of Knowledge is there for all of us to connect to. Each of us when we use our ‘Intuition’ are tuning into our Ancient abilities we once upon a time all of us had.. As we connect within that Pool of Knowledge which is held within the Universal Grid of Consciousness of which we are all still connected, All are still a thread within it. Just like that Spiders Web. We radiate out from the centre as we have journeyed to explore through our own  experiences.. But we are still part of that Gigantic Web, we are all upon our own various threads of life, but all of us are connected to the WHOLE the Centre of our BEing.

And just like that Spiders Web when its prey gets caught within the sticky web , the vibration of its struggle travels along the various threads as it alerts the Spider usually sat in the centre that she has caught her supper..

So too we Humans with our thoughts and emotions affect the Grid of Consciousness as it travels out around the world.

 

“Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it.”

and as Chief Seattle so wisely understood He knew that what we do to  others will ultimately affect ourselves.

  “Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves”.

“ All Things are Bound Together”

All things are bound together.. Such is the Matrix of life, as we destroy our environment, our Oceans, our animal kingdom, so many species becoming extinct. So too will we, if we do not wake up to ourselves, as we pollute ourselves with Poisons, drugs, Chemicals, Food Additives, Air Pollution. The list is endless. We see our Health in decline as our Environment is being destroyed as you can see in my page Environmental Issues just how much destruction we are reeking upon ourselves and our Planet.  

We need to see the Web of Life we are building, and we need to start to understand that we are each of us connected to one another.

We need to see what we are doing to our World and ourselves.

As we destroy our environment so too do we destroy the fabric of our own existence.. We will begin to see the Threads which have held our Web of creation together start to break..

One thread at a time.. they are breaking down.

“All things connect”

We may not all of us realise it, but the Signs are already here.. As the Wind howls and Earthquakes rock our foundations and our weather patterns eat away at our Earth. We are ALL of us Connected. Both to each other and to our Earth Mother.

We may not see the Threads Break as we pollute our World 

We may not see the Threads break as our Economy fails, and our monetary systems collapse..

We may not see the Threads Break as we Judge and Condemn, Control and Conquer.

We may not see the Threads Break as Wars and discontent break out around our world.. 

We may not see the Threads Break One by One.. Until The Web of Life we created is no more..

And we will ask, just as we ask now.. about those Ancient Race of Beings who built those Megalithic Stone Structures and wonder who and   

What Happened to the HUMAN RACE?

Will we Destroy our WEB of Life and Way of Living?

Will We have to start again from Scratch

Like our Spider?

 

Thoughts are Living Things..

Create your Threads of Thought within the Web with Care..

Time to Rebalance the Maze of Life.

Right now, it appears like we are trapped within a maze, each of us are searching for a way out. We may appear lost, going around and around in circles. We often see others pointing their fingers, and blaming each other, as we formulate our own opinions about the world as each of us shout to be heard.

 We jump up and down with our heads bobbing over the hedge as we try to see beyond our own path, to see if there are any shortcuts to find a better way.  Yet all the time we may fear what lies beyond.

We constantly give our power away, by allowing others to overshadow our thinking, we have not only got lost within the maze. So engrossed are we, within the machinery of our illusionary world of Hollywood, computer games, iPhone’s, advertisements and politics, we no longer know what is true, false or fake. 

For our world is fabricated, manipulated, as our senses are constantly being bombarded from all angles by those who wish us to be distracted, dumbed down and hoodwinked, to live in constant fear from one thing or another.  

We need to step out of the dark holes within the maze of our minds which we have created for ourselves and learn to focus upon our inner world and our own energy and the beauty of creation, as we learn again to love and respect ourselves. Treating others too as we ourselves wish to be treated.  

Our own ENERGY is so important..

Stepping out on our own can be daunting, for we can find ourselves feeling alone and lost. Others will still be pointing their fingers at you, saying you are not fitting into their patterns and programming. So, you are made to feel different, an outcast, just because we perceive differently. 

As humans we fear change, so we may still want to cling onto the maze, the old patterns, our old ways of being, for they are our comfort zone, so we hang onto our guilt, our prejudices, blame, and our victim mentalities and old habits. 

But once you are free of this thinking, you will find yourself detaching from fear, that twists our insides, as we break the illusion that has been  binding us within its spell casting within our current matrix.

Once Free, you then begin to pull in the energy of love, the love of self, and the love of Nature, as you begin to embrace Unity Consciousness.  You then see the world in a new perspective. As you understand we are all of us going through this process, all be it in different time zones, through our various experiences. 

Nature is asking us to engage in Oneness. She is showing us with all of her beauty just how at One we all are. She is showing you with her clouds, rain, storms, rainbows, earthquakes, Sunny days, and chilly days,  just how small each of us are within the scheme of the Universe. 

Yet she is also showing you how valued each of us are from the tiny insects to human kind, for each one of us is connected to the other. You just have to observe, from that silent place within, and know each of us affects the whole.

Our ripples, how ever large or small, be it thoughts or deeds reach out to touch another.  The Ripple Effect has begun.. And many as yet do not even see how important a role they are playing in this Awakening..  But the more who can open their hearts, then the more love will radiates around the world. 

For each of us are affecting the WHOLE.

When you step beyond this Maze, this Matrix, the spells which have been cast upon our mind to control and cloud the truth of our thinking, you will find yourself trusting your own instincts more, as we go within the flow, as we cleanse and let go of belief systems. As we let go of past wounds, and inner conflicts and the divisions which have deliberately kept us feeling alone and separate with the labels society and those in elite places have decided to put upon us.  

Once we begin to trust our own inner compass to guide us, we then pursue the things which will empower us, and bring us fulfilment, as we reconnect back to our creative magical selves. We are all powerful beings who have been robbed of our true heritage..  Once we break free of those chains that have bound us , and we no longer allow others to overshadow us, keeping us prisoners,  We then step into our Full Sovereignty as Free Human Beings.. 

But only we hold the keys to unlock our cell doors.. It’s up to us to turn the key to unlock our hearts..  

So, as we unlock our hearts, your world opens up, as New Realities present themselves. Showing you a New Earth, an exciting place where Synchronicities take place. Where you meet along your pathway like-minded souls who have travelled through their own dark mazes to emerge into this new world. Where we let go of the past, and we learn to forgive those who caused us pain and forgive and heal ourselves. 

We then learn to walk into the Light of our own hearts again.

This journey is by no means an easy one to travel,  the only barriers are ourselves, each step leads us to discover more wonders about ourselves.   As we learn to work through these old patterns as we embrace Love, Unity, Peace and Happiness. As we let go of those traits of feeling unworthy. 

 We are all working through the Quantum fields of Unity Consciousness.

This journey will be different for each of us, for no one is the same, we are each unique. For we all have different agenda’s and pathways to work through.   For me right now, I am allowing my creative flow, I am writing more as I find myself writing in poetic stories. So, I am embracing what is coming forward as I go within its flow.

I am sleeping more, if I feel like a nap in the middle of the day, I embrace it. I awake feeling refreshed. My sleep patterns are fitful, I know in dream time I am working more, as stories come forth of the past, I feel I am releasing and letting go, as I meet in sleep state those I need to help and those who are helping me. And I often ponder upon which time line, which parallel life I may be accessing for we are also multidimensional Beings, housed in our Earth Body for this Earth experience. 

 I have always embraced nature, but I make time to spend more time out in nature, blending, feeling the beauty of Mother Earth.  I notice minuet things, petals, insects, Bees,  grass, pollen etc,   as the flora and fauna show me how interconnected we are.  If it were not for the Bee… our food supply would diminish, and yet we seldom think of the chemicals we pour over the land which is drastically affecting the Bee population.. All is connected, and all eventually will have a knock on effect.

Some of you may be finding a new focus in your life, or taking a step back to relax and be in your own space more. Whatever you do, do it with love in your hearts and embrace your moment of Now. For there truly is no other better one than this moment to start the changes needed to change the rest of your Life.

When we embrace and respect our lives and all that we have been given, and we learn from a point of gratitude, and not waste our opportunities, we need to make our lives count.  Each of us now are beginning to discover our purpose. Make the most of yours and in doing so, you help each of us make the most of ours.. 

The photos were taken on a walk in Chatsworth Gardens in Derbyshire inside the house garden grounds back in 2017, the same time most of these words were written.

 It was a perfect day to reflect and be at One..

As is Every Day..

The Bluebell Wood~ Poem and Story

Once upon a time within a wood

Unfolding her wings a Fairy Girl stood

She flew and she sang with the hum of the Bee

Sprinkling her dust to create a blue seaRufford Park

Each flower she tended with love and with care

Sharing their nectar she lived happily there

Blackbird

The blackbird he sang his delight in his Song

The wood their home it was where both belonged

Bluebell Wood ~ Rufford

She’d fly high and low touching each bell

And each one would open under her spell

Bluebell Wood 5

Soon there were thousands, they stretched out for miles

Each one touched by the Fairy with smiles.

Bluebell Wood 2

Now one day a woman alone and forlorn

Walked in the wood all weary and worn

She’d strayed from the path so deep was her thought

Blinded by tears of life’s worries she was caught

Bluebell Path

She rested her back by the trunk of a tree

Closing her eyes, that woman was me

She came to the wood to speak to a tree

The ‘Old One’ would listen, Silence being the key

Bluebell trail

His branches would creak, his bark would feel warm

The ‘Old One’ poured love, and the woman felt calm

The Fairy would sit up high in his branch

Watching the exchange and the woman’s downward glance.

The Standing One in the Bluebell wood

She’d fly by her shoulder and tickle her hair

With each breath the woman discarded her cares

She stood up, breathed deep, hugging her tree

Her thoughts now clear, her mind filled with glee

Bluebells

She turned giving thanks and blinked in surprise

Gasping out loud as the sight met her eyes

Her smile now broad, her heart full of love

The Woman discovers the Bluebell Wood..

Bluebell edge of the wood

And so she returns at May time each year

Feeding the birds, she no longer sheds tears

The Fairies still fly and dance in the tree

And once in a while they visit with me

Feeding the Birds

The moral of this tale is to open your heart

Let Nature heal you, you are one from the start

Discover your breath and talk to the trees

Seek out the Silence; your mind holds the keys

Bluebell wood 6

So let go of sorrow, worry and strive

Let Nature in for she’s part of your life

And if you should wander and stray off track

Remember that LOVE will lead you straight back..

Growing Season Within & Without

Hello again to those of you who bare with me through these times of shifts and changes. So much is happening within our world, both within a consciousness level, and within our own personal lives. In which so many lives have been tipped upside down within this Upside Down World.

We each have had to learn to navigate through these changes and shifting energies as best we can. And while the outer world is plunged within the fear, I have for the most part been able to ground myself within the growing season of planting and tending our large allotment plot. As well as connecting back within, to the things my heart is guiding me to, such as my painting and crafts.

Like any one who starts out creating a garden, you have to put in the hard heavy ground work… We have to dig and overturn the Earth. The soil needs to be fed nutrients. And we need to plan our crop rotation. So as not to take too much out of the soil, and learn what crops give back the nutrients into the earth.. We learn what crops grow in harmony together, and what plants to mingle within them, to offset damage due to aphids etc. And we mustn’t be afraid of getting our hands dirty, learning what to keep and what to discard, or that we get aches and pains within our bodies through all the efforts we put in. Gardening teaches us many things, and while we have many successes, we also can expect some disappointments. Not all gardening is a bed of roses. Such is Life

Navigating Life means we also have tend our inner garden, in preparing our Inner world. As we reconnect with our Hearts. As we strengthen our connections with those around us, as we use our discernment, our compassion and our awareness. Along with our love and our common-sense of reasoning via our internal compass using our in-built gifts of Intuition! We learn to separate from our Heads of our indoctrinated teachings, back into our Hearts, which connects us back to Source. This is always difficult because of our ingrained thought patterns, we have to be prepared to view life from alternative perspectives. As we learn to let go of our Ego minds to be right.

The world is going through some of its own heavy turmoil right now, as we Unearth the Truth of our Reality. People are digging and weeding out their own information, and having to learn to navigate and separate the disinformation from the truth….. The Wheat from the Chaff When you plant your seeds, be it of what ever variety, you have to be patient… You plant them in the dark, cover them with Earth, and you wait… If you neglect the seeds, and don’t water them, then they perish , if you over water them, that too can cause them to rot.. So learning Discernment is vital, for what we focus upon is what we create.

We need to tend to our thoughts right now, and weed out that which we do not wish to create, and only cultivate the thoughts we wish to manifest within our New Earth

The world reflects back to us all the time what we are manifesting. And if our roots are not strong or we neglect to nurture ourselves, we become overwhelmed by the weeds within society which for the most part, not all, for some weeds are useful. But many can choke out and overtake that which is wholesome and good.

A good gardener knows patience. My fruit trees have taken several years to bare fruit. And this year I thought with all the blossom we would have a good crop of apples. But they are covered in leaf mildew, such has been the weather. You have to take the good with the bad. We grow organic, so we don’t use any chemicals. I mixed up a spray from natural ingredients. We wait and see if this has helped. Patience is at the core of any gardener. This year here in the UK we certainly have been pushed way beyond our Patience Barriers and people have had to adapt. And Humanity is going to have to adapt within these coming changes and shifts. For many as yet do not foresee the challenges yet to come. So we have to hold steady in the belief of our future New Earth and what we wish that to look like..

So we need to harness those visions of how we can change ourselves and the world for the better, not focusing on what is always wrong with it.. But pulling upon our strengths not our weaknesses, looking for new ways in which we can unify and heal, and work in cooperation with each other instead of competition. Just like when you plan your garden, you hold a vision of what the end process will look like… You see your crops delivering a good harvest.. You see your flowers and shrubs in full bloom, as you plan how your garden will look once it is mature.

And although your garden will hold many different varieties, of flowers, each plant is unique. Just as we are. You will learn what plants thrive in shade or direct sunlight. They care not what labels WE give them. All, if nurtured correctly should thrive, given their roots are firm in a well tended environment and they have enough light, water and nutrients, specific to their needs.. We have much to learn from our Gardens, and while many plants have many fancy Latin names, they all belong to the Mother Earth. As we Humans do, We All have our needs..

It matters not what labels we give ourselves or others.. We are ONE family, The Human Race. We need to understand the importance once again of being Grounded within Mother Earth instead of giving each other labels and pointing out our differences. For this is how we are kept separated. We have to find our commonalities. Rediscovering our communities, and our inner wisdom. When you look at nature, each and everything is unique. We now have a unique opportunity in which we all can grow through these bitter sweet times. As we grow from the Inside Out!

Within our world there is always going to be the Bitter and the Sweet!

Bitter to Sweet!

And when the world finally wakes, there are going to many bitter pills to swallow. In that we trusted those whom we thought had our best interests at heart. When the seeds so many tried to sow, to show the world the truth of their understanding, which was censored and thrown out, like weeds on the rubbish heap. So many are going to need our help.

We who hold within our being, the conscious Light of Knowing. For it is then the Lightworkers will be needed to heal, to bridge the wounds, as we connect with each other around the globe to unify in our common purpose of why we incarnated at this time in our Earth’s Evolution. We then will need to rely upon each other more than ever and learn new skills, not only in new ways of living in harmony within a community, as we adapt to the changes to come. But as we rediscover just who we are and our inner abilities which stand us apart as Human Beings. As we rediscover our connections back within Mother Nature.

The Seeds of Knowledge  come to us in many ways, just like our jigsaw pieces making little sense on their own.. But when we plant nurture and tend them they grow and flourish. 

We are all seeds….. Each of us upon our own journey each of us appearing as separate, and yet we are all of us linked together.

It is now time to gather together and spread out our own seeds of love compassion and understanding, and sow them and nurture them. For our Earth and our Brothers and Sisters around this Earth need to feel that love.. We really do now need to start and visualise and live from our hearts as to what type of world we want to live… It is as simple as learning to live from your Heart.

We are Many, Each a separate head, but each connected to the same Heart and Root. Which is LOVE.

Love and Blessings to you All

The Elder~ The Circular Path ~Final Chapter.

Today is the final Chapter of the Elder Story.. We are all upon the same Tree each holding onto our our particular pathway. Like leaves we may feel separate swaying in the breeze, yet each one is part of the cycle and each one is helping nourish the whole.”  May we realise that we ALL of us are on a Circular Path, that we keep perpetuating as we go around and around repeating the same mistakes within our controlling world of greed… These particular times are perhaps here to shake us into finding our inner strengths and weaknesses.. No matter what our beliefs… We are hear to discover who we are. No one can do that for you.. And no one is right and no one is wrong, because each are here at this time in our Earth’s History to help each other wake up.. The present day challenges are here for a reason, even though we may not realise it.. You have to put in your own inner work of honouring and learning to love and respect ourselves in finding your own inner Light and Truth .. When we learn to do that… Only then will we see it reflected back in the outer world… Change comes from within… As we see ourselves as One with Mother Earth, A sovereign Being,.. To Do no harm to others… That includes checking in on our thoughts too.. Much Love to you all… 💛

 Today chores were completed, family drew close and the world continued to spin in its ever seemingly frustrating circles of divisions.  It was time to return to the Peace of her Elder Tree.

Today the Signs had all been about the number 4 as it jumped out at her at every chance it could. She thought upon how often we used this number. The four points of the compass, Four Elements. Four Cornerstones and more.

The four corners of the world were often spoken of, yet Mother Earth was round, a perfect circle as was the Moon and Sun to our eyes.

The woman smiled at how Mankind built his home in squares and angles, ridged blocks and sharp corners. And an image of the pyramids came to mind.  She thought about his personality traits, not easily bending in the wind or flowing in the stream of life. He always appeared to be fighting it, wanting to shape nature to his design rather than living in co-operations with it.

Nature rarely followed a straight line for long. The Ivy she now painted wound its way around the bird’s nest. Birds knew the strength of the circle. The woman leaned back stretching as she turned over the record which had stopped playing on the turntable.  Another circle as each thought went around and around in her head.

The Elder was taking shape now as she mixed some blues and reds in her dish for the berries. The Elder was silent again as she absorbed herself in her task of adding the Elderberries in their bunches to where she felt they needed to be. As her paintbrushes worked she followed her heart,  her vision saw another world unfolding inside her mind as she settled deeper within the Elder’s Magic.

The Heart of the Elder.
The Heart of the Elder.

Her mind flew back to her childhood to the happy times of her memory when she climbed trees and jumped brooks with her younger brother. Carefree days of long Summer Sun helping farmers harvest hay. She thought how she had gathered the Elderberries for her Aunt who would use their flowers in Spring to make sparkling wine, and make syrup and jams and delicious cordials from the Autumn berries. She loved being outdoors, it took her away from the fear of arguments and the responsibilities of watching over her four younger siblings.

She thought fondly of her Dad and the special times of walking the Dales and collecting the green Hazelnut cobs in the early months of September. Eating half before they got home with the nutcrackers tucked in his pocket to save their teeth. He’d always a sharp penknife and would often cut the Hazel rods to make walking sticks. It was the one thing she had wanted when he had passed, for he had made a special one with a ram horn on the top for a handle he used for walking.  He had found the weathered skull upon one of his many lonely hill top walks much later in life.

Around and around her thoughts went as each brush stroke filled in more leaves at the tip of the branches. Her mind thought of the overhanging branch of the large Beech tree in their childhood garden and how in winter storms her Dad had made them all sleep down stairs for fear of the big tree toppling over.

At the thought of the Beech tree she remembered the scars inflicted into its bark as her brother had calved his initials into its trunk. And how with a pellet gun he had aimed at it piercing it over and over in target practice.

Years later as an adult those same scars were still there to be seen. They were not as sharp to the eye, one had to lift their head higher to see them. But they were still visible to those who knew where to look.

But the scars had not prevented the Tree from growing. They were now part of the tree who had grown from the inside outwards.

The woman thought of all the layers which had gone into her own growth. She had no visible outward scars on her skin. Hers had been hidden within the circles of her own memories.

The Tribal  Universe is a circle of learning, everything is related, the woman had long since understood this knowledge.  Standing back from her painting, she saw how the snake had wound its way around the Elder and up into the branches. Each branch a different path. A road taken, each a journey of discovering who we are.

Branches of Life
Branches of Life

We are each climbing our tree, stepping onto our various branches, hauling ourselves higher as we aim to reach the top. Some are sure footed, climbing easily, while others can slip back losing their footing falling on hard ground and they struggle to pick themselves back up to climb again.   Some do not even have the courage to climb the tree for fearing they will fall.. Fear holding many back from exploring and testing one’s self to higher goals.

We are all upon the same Tree each holding onto our our particular pathway. Like leaves we may feel separate swaying in the breeze, yet each one is part of the cycle and each one is helping nourish the whole. 

 Everything has a time, an evolutionary path through their cycles. Like the Tree it had to shut down, pull back and have its periods of rest as well as growth. Throughout History the woman saw how Mankind had also gone through such cycles. 

She thought upon the events in the world. How one thing affects another, each a piece within the whole. She put her brush down and stood up arching her aching back as she stepped back to see the whole of her painting.

When we stand back, we see the Earth is alive right from its centre, the womb with its red blood, hot liquid gushing through her arteries. Her veins of waterways merging into her vast oceans tides ebbing and flowing with the Moons Wax and Wane.  While the hairs upon her outer skin are the billions of trees which hold her foundations together. Supporting both Great and Small, from Elephants to Insects, Whales to birds..

A Natural democracy prevails, all things having the right to exist, all things being equal.  She thought back through her memories, her history. We all of us have our place in history, each of us shaping it, calving out our places within it. Even if we may not realise the scars we inflict or leave behind us.  She saw how the circle of life repeats, and she knew deep down that we were reaping the consequences of neglect and greed. What seeds we had sown had to be reaped. What goes around comes around she thought. 

The Elder had known no words were needed today, for all the work being done had to come from one’s own BE-ing. As one explored their own journey which took them deep into their roots, taking them both High and Low along the branches of memory. One had to go within themselves to expand and grow.

She sighed, as she finished what she had started, she also knew that no one, and nothing was ever lost as she gave thanks to the Elder, for all that it had given.  For she knew she was just one among many who were travelling back home.

 For All roads lead us home, and we were all part of the same Tree of Life.

The Elder~ Shedding of Skins~ Part3

To continue the Story, The Elder teachers us about Natural Law and the importance of growing from within. This post has been Scheduled. Part One can be found here of The Elder~ The Pathfinder And Part Two The Elder~ Regeneration and Renewal …. Enjoy!

Things with Wings
Things with Wings

The woman had to leave the painting alone for a while, but the Elder was never far from her thoughts as she pondered upon what the Elder had spoken of regarding the Renewing and Regenerating.

She thought about her beloved forest walks and in particular the Standing Ones of the Oak Tribe who had always drawn her to their energy.

On her walks she would often reach out to touch their bark, their outer skin, gnarled and cracked, marvelling upon their ages.

The forest of Sherwood that she loved so well held one of the oldest and well known, The Major Oak  Whose Standing had seen so many changes during at least 1,000 years reign over his domain.  She thought of the changes still to come as she had signed petitions to try to prevent Fracking from under his roots.  She again sent a silent prayer out to her Earth Mother as she thought of all the destruction Mankind had caused upon and deep into her own Earth Crust skin.

The Major Oak is now supported with beams and wires .
The Major Oak is now supported with beams and wires its age is approximated to be over 800 to 1,000 years.. Can you see the Elephant within its trunk?

By the time the woman returned to pick up her brushes, the woman was eager to learn what the Elder had to teach her. Today she filled in more details to the bark, the tiny brush strokes making patterns she picked out the creepy crawlies, spiders, and grubs now forming. The woman thought deeply upon the thousands of insects that made their home in the bark and among the crevasses and branches of the Standing Ones.

Trees are home to Thousands of insects and wildlife
Trees are home to Thousands of insects and wildlife

The Elder remained silent, allowing the woman to penetrate each crevasse with her brush stroke as deeper she sank into her own world of thought.  She painted the skin of the snake as it twisted up and out along the branch of the Elder, and thought of the many symbols mankind had used in which the snake had played a part.

ELDER Snake branch

The serpent representing both good and bad.  The secret to a snake’s success was its scales providing both impetus and resistance. It shed many skins to allow it to keep on growing. It glided over everything managing to climb trees, swim and bury itself beneath the earth.  She thought deeper to the various cultures which had created both Fascination and Fear.

 Quetzalcoatl the Feathered Serpent came to mind.

 Scholars had twisted the snake symbol for use of many of their own interpretations. The snake reminding her of the Kundalini, providing the Spark of Life, a great healer in many symbols.  As she thought of her own snake-like-spine, and that of the Standing Ones trunk. Connecting both Heaven and Earth.  As she thought of the times she had meditated her spine pressed against their trunk as she asked for The Standing Ones Healing.

She thought of healing and remembered the medical profession who also had it within their healing symbol The Caduceus entwined around a staff with wings. And the Rod of Asclepius  And wondered upon how these symbols had been created.  She assumed the snake meant both Life and Death which was what the medical professions dealt with at all times.

So many interpretations Mankind had given to the snake, both positive and negative which she had read about, ‘Which were correct?’  she thought.

The Elder picking up on her question answered. “ All of them,” said the Elder, “The snake is neither Good or bad, it is the cycle of Life itself. The Ouroboros  The snake shows you by leaving your skin behind life begins anew. Your Human skin is but a shell and so too will be left behind.

In your world, there can be no birth without death. It is a perpetual cycle.  You will see this again and again in nature. But your Human Tribe do not follow the natural law of the predator-prey cycle. Your Human Tribe has killed all the animals it deems as bad.  Such as the Wolf , Bear and Fox.

Then you cry when your forests get overrun with Deer and Elk and Rabbits. Who then strip the forests and grasslands bare and they then suffer and starve as the balance is upset. You Humans then take it upon yourselves to cull and thin out the over population of species. Causing more suffering”.

She thought of the disease  Myxomatosis introduced to Rabbits  And the many Rabbits she had seen affected as a child in the country. She also thought of the Elephant tribe and wondered at the suffering of their tribe at the hands of mans ignorance and greed. It was no coincidence that the image of the Elephant had crept into her painting embedded within its roots. Or the horrendous culling of young seal cubs that were clubbed to death. This too was woven within the roots of her painting.

“Yet” continued the Elder, “If you had let well alone Nature would keep the balance by its own natural cycles..  Each living thing that is placed upon your Earth Mother has purpose. And is subject to natural law. Including you Humans. But you have long forgotten the natural laws of Cause and Effect. You think you are superior to them. But the Universe as a whole is governed by them, there is no escape.”

As the woman continued to paint, eyes appeared in her imagination which had transferred to the bark which peered deeper into her soul. She thought upon the many times she had sort out the Standing Ones healing. And to the shedding of her many tears pressed up against their trunks. How many sobs had they listened to? never judging, always steadfast, silent but for their whispers on the wind as they imparted their calm reverence.  

They replaced her own sapping energy with their own as she often felt their pulse beat up through her spine. They had become bound by their roots as she imagined her energy tap-root from her spine going down around theirs into Mother Earths Heart as she meditated.

She knew the Standing Ones were the wisdom keepers, each year witnessing the changes, information contained within their own growth cycles of both good and bad years. Each inner ring a record, yet its outer skin/bark remained the same. Showing us how we have so many layers and yet can hold a constant mask to our outer Being.

We all grow from our inner centre outward from our hearts. And how important it was to go within and find those years which had affected our growth.

The woman stood back from her painting. She thanked again the Elder for the wisdom, knowing that as a world right now, we were but shedding another skin. Mankind was in yet another cycle of Learning, growing in inner wisdom as he woke up to himself.

The Elder~ Renewal and Regeneration Part 2

 Part One can be found Here

Today’s Story is all about Renewal and Regeneration. As the Elder reminds us of sacrifice and our constant connections with trees ( ” “You would not have had Paper upon which to write, books to read by which you educate yourselves.” continued the Elder. “Let us not forget what else the Tree Tribes have given you humans” ) Enjoy Part Two.

Wisdom comes in all shapes
Wisdom comes in all shapes

The woman stood up from her half-finished painting  and saw woven between the roots more shapes of animals. She would explore these in more detail when she painted them in later. But for now, she concentrated upon the trunk of the Elder, and the huge hollow, a Void within its belly.

 Her pencil had spiraled out around and around when she was drawing it and she was reminded of the first spirals and the Nautilus shell. She thought of the Golden Ratio  as her mind then flew  to Leonardo Da Vinci.  Argh, how easily our thoughts flit from one thing to another she thought as she picked up her brush and started to allow it free rein as she decided to fill in the hollow.

Heartbeat
Heartbeat

Her thoughts flew the Tree and how like a giant Mother its limbs were outstretched in all directions as if embracing all the elements. It reached up to the sky, and all four corners of the compass, as well and reaching down. And she thought of the wonderful Oaks she visited along her walks.. ‘How mighty Oaks grow from little acorns’ crossed her mind. ‘Yes, she thought, great things often come from small beginnings’

Her thoughts took her to the acorn and the seeds. ‘Which came first? as she thought of the chicken and the egg’.. The hollow looked egg-shaped, as her pencil kept working.  She brought herself back to what she was creating and the shape of a Human fetus almost fully formed had been created within the womb of the Elder.

“It is Good to begin today with the creating of New Life” said the Elder. “For today we speak of Renewal and Regeneration. This time period you are now in like any other time period upon your planet has always been about Change.

The Standing Ones know all about Renewal. Have not their roots stood fast while all around them Change is constant?”

The woman thought on the wonderful Oaks she loved so much which were hundreds of years old and thought on what changes these Standing Ones had witnessed.

The Elder picking up the tread of the woman’s thoughts  continued. “Throughout your centuries, we the Tree Tribes are Life Givers. Yet you humans have taken and not thought of giving back. Do we not give you the very Air You Breathe? Have we not supplied you with your Timber to build your homes, for shelter and for warmth?

Were not your Empires conquered and continents discovered by the giving of our lives, as you cut Thousands of our Oak Tribe to build ships and to build your cities? Without our giving, you would not have had your carts and tools or great sailing vessels to fish and travel to prosper and trade”.

The woman looked down at the paintbrush, its handle made of wood now in her hand as she mixed the watercolour to paint in the fetus which was developing at a faster rate than she had realised as her mind came back to her painting.

“You would not have had Paper upon which to write, books to read by which you educate yourselves.” continued the Elder. “Let us not forget what else the Tree Tribes have given you humans”

Art-books
Art-books

The voice of the Elder faded as the Woman looked about her small room she used for painting. She looked at the many books upon the shelves, the wall paper upon the walls, the printer loaded with paper and her oak desk full of her art papers, card and tissue.  She paused, and looked to what she was creating as she painted the fetus, she was one with the Elder.

Tick-tock of life
Tick-tock of life

The woman was cast in that moment back throughout time, she saw the first carts, the galleon ships and the weaving looms. She saw the carpenters and their craftsmanship her attention was caught as  she looked at the old grandfather clock that had long-lost its tick  which stood in the corner of her study. ALL gifts of Giving from the Standing Ones and the Tree Tribes.

The sound of the Elder’s teachings came back into her mind as the Elder continued. “We have also given you Medicines, and Nutrition, Rubber from our bark, Cork for your wine bottles, Berries, Nuts. We are the Givers of Life!

Our Tree Tribes know all about Renewal and Regeneration For hundreds and Millions of your years we have thrived unhindered.  We not only have provided humans with shelter, but we provide millions of other species with food and shelter from those who creep, crawl, climb, slither and fly.

We teach about the importance of renewal as we shed our leaves, drop our seeds, and spread our pollen. We teach about Stillness, and Contentment, and letting go of attachments. We also teach how to be steadfast and ground yourself as our roots hold firm within our Earth Mothers soil. We bind her together for when we are removed her foundations are washed away by the rain.

You Humans are now washing away the very foundations beneath your feet and yet you do not see how each time you hurt another or scar our Mother, you are also wounding yourselves”

The woman dipped her brush into the crimson paint as the Elder stopped speaking. She looked down seeing the Fetus now finished, she added the paint to the opening blossom of a flower that had appeared from the Ivy bound around the trunk of the tree. She was puzzled. The flower did not belong she thought to the ivy. Her mind then thought of the Lotus Blossom.. How strange to paint a flower here within the womb. Yet as her mind explored more she thought why not. For did not the Lotus represent Rebirth also

Life Givers~  Partial Painting Magnified

Her mind thought of the placenta and the blood that flowed from Mother to unborn child. She thought of the birthing of her own children and the spirit from which we all came.

The Elder picked up again on her thoughts. “ Yes, each tree also has a spirit, a Dryad of Energy which radiates outwards. We have our Seasons too. Times of darkness and rest through the winter storms, but we never stop growing as we grow from the centre of our Being adding rings to our Earth years.”

The Woman looked down at her own ring upon her hand and skin, like the bark of the trees as they grew older they were looking worn and showing signs of ageing.  Yet she also knew her skin regenerated every day.. She looked now at what she had started to paint the scales of several snakes around the tree trunk. She thought of the dead and dying cells of her skin, and all the dead and dying trees upon the earth.. Each connecting like a huge skin around Mother Gaia .

The time for renewal was also a time for shedding and letting go. She saw how Mother Earth was also speaking to us and yet we were not listening. Renewal and Regenerating meant all things changed.. They had changed in the past, thousands of years before and the planet was changing now and the Humans were also changing with her. For we were One.

The woman put down her paintbrush as she studied the snakes she had created upon the Elder Tree. She thought of the prophecies of the Black snake across our Mothers land. And she saw again the Standing Ones strength had held stronger when linking together holding the fabric of the Earth together with their roots. Were we going to have to go back to our roots she thought? Like the Tree Tribes she saw much suffering through great changes.

 It was now  time for many skins to join together as One!.

Each of us, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward.. I hope that I can send a few ripples out via the web of life, as we each of us weave the threads together... Welcome to my Sanctuary of Peace and Love... May we each spread our Lights around our World....Sue Dreamwalker
