the morning ritual

watercolourwaking when the sun stirs is a beautiful gift, hearing the birds sing, seeing daylight slowly come to fruition through my curtainless windows.

Slow has to be the way I describe this time, slow and gentle, writing my thoughts, cleansing my head in readiness for the day as well as the body with long glass of warm water and fresh lemon………….  tranquil time before the demands and rigours of my interior design practice try and pull me this way and that.

I couldnt do it any other way

 

So Angry, can the angels hear?

Yesterday the anger was brewing, I am moving offices next week, so much is getting stirred up, remember back in 1995 when I moved in to my new offices, although full of excitement it was a sad time for many, many reasons.  This all came back up and by the time the evening had set in, had a bath and ready to watch film and relax the anger  and feelings of vengefulness just overflowed. I lost my sense of being able to discriminate between what the anger was basically about and what was everyday niggles, everything seemed to need some kind of vengeful action, the adrenaline was flowing and i was ready for action.

This morning I awoke after restless night and tried to just write the angry feeling out if me, then I drew from my heart, something about angels hearing?  , did it help , yes ! and then went out and treated myself to a new mediation cushion !

Message from David Lynch

Now here is a man who knows what he is talking about.  America needs people  like this, people who see the value of our children, all the countries in the world need people like this  !!

The following words are by no other than DAVID LYNCH an award winning director of so many great films.

I take my hat of to you Mr Lynch !!

In today’s world of fear and uncertainty, every child should have one class period a day to dive within himself and experience the field of silence—bliss—the enormous reservoir of energy and intelligence that is deep within all of us. This is the way to save the coming generation.

I have been “diving within” through the Transcendental Meditation technique for over 30 years. It has changed my life, my world. I am not alone. Millions of other people of all ages, religions, and walks of life practice the technique and enjoy incredible benefits.

Someday, hopefully very soon, “diving within” as a preparation for learning and as a tool for developing the creative potential of the mind will be a standard part of every school’s curriculum. The stresses of today’s world are taking an enormous toll on our children right now. There are hundreds of schools, with thousands of students, who are eager to relieve this stress and bring out the full potential of every student by providing this Consciousness-Based education today.

Our Foundation was established to ensure that any child in America who wants to learn and practice the Transcendental Meditation program can do so. The TM program is the most thoroughly researched and widely practiced program in the world for developing the full creative potential of the brain and mind, improving health, reducing stress, and improving academic outcomes. We provide scholarships for students to learn the technique and to receive the complete follow-up program of instruction throughout their student years to ensure they receive the maximum benefits. We also provide scholarships for students who want to attend the growing number of highly successful schools, colleges, and universities founded on this Consciousness-Based approach to education.

I have had the pleasure of meeting many students who are “diving within” and experiencing Consciousness-Based education. These students are all unique individuals, very much themselves. They are amazing, self-sufficient, wide-awake, energetic, blissful, creative, powerfully intelligent and peaceful human beings. Meeting these students, for me, was the proof that Consciousness-Based education is a profoundly good thing for our schools and for our world.

Research and experience document the profound benefits to society as a whole when our children dive within. Individual peace is the unit of world peace. By offering Consciousness-Based education to the coming generation, we can promote a strong foundation for a healthy, harmonious, and peaceful world. For this, the Foundation also supports the establishment of Universities of World Peace that will train the coming generation in a new profession: that of professional peacemaker.

Thank you very much for your interest. And please remember that Consciousness-Based education is not a luxury. For our children who are growing up in a stressful, often frightening, crisis-ridden world, it is a necessity.

Moon Meditation

A beautiful meditation to call in the moon

full-moon-jakush-1

Catch the building wave of the waxing moon to provide momentum for new projects, initiatives and life passions.

Draw upon the power of the Full Moon to bring Creative force to actualization

Allow the Waning Moon to support the process of surrender and release at the end of each cycle

Embrace the stillness of the Dark Moon to reflect and recharge

 

Take three deep breaths ~ breathing in stillness, breathing out tension.  Relax.  You are here to open to the magical blessings of the Moon.  Focus on your intention for a moment, and then release it.

Connect to the silver-liquid light pouring down from the Moon.  It is a river of radiance flowing down upon you, streaming into your crown chakra at the top of your head, flowing over your skin, infusing your aura with silver energy.  Allow the energy in your crown to flow down into your head & into your Third Eye chakra, to your throat chakra spilling down your arms with radiant light, into your heart, your solar plexus, deep into your sacral chakra flowing down your leg & to your root at the base of your spine … allow the energy to flow through you & down into the Earth again in a continuous stream.  It may help to say quietly to yourself:

I am a vessel of moonlight … 

I am one with the moonlight …

I am the moonlight … 

I am the Moon Mother …

Be present with the energies of the Moon for as long as you like. When you are ready, bring your awareness back to your body.  Bring your breath fully into your body, and release your breath into the Earth.  Be aware of any sensations or experiences in your body, in your heart, in your mind.  Ground by placing your hands or body on the ground & allowing Mother Earth to absorb any excess energies.

Thank the Moon for sharing her blessings with you.

Catch the building wave of the waxing moon to provide momentum for new projects, initiatives and life passions.
