Be the Change
You know that saying by Mahatma Ghandi, ‘Be the Change you want to see in the World’. This of course is easier said than done, although Ghandi taught by example, I wonder if we are teaching by example!
Firstly I think we have to think about how we want the world to be. What do we want for our world. I want a world where we feel we are in a community, where we are all pulling together for the sake of that community. Where everyone in that community are treating each other with respect and compassion. I realise that we don’t all believe in the same things, or in doing something the same way, but in my dream community, we have space for that. We have patience with each other and there is no fundamentalism in my ideal community, there is room for all beliefs. In my community we treat each other as sacred beings, living a sacred life on a sacred planet.
To me what is important is the way we treat other members of our community. It’s not what we are trying to achieve, but HOW we achieve it that is important. Ghandi didn’t know what the outcome of his actions would be. What he wanted to do was to live peace, be peace and hope that others would follow his example, but he didn’t go out to ‘make’ them follow his example. This is the key. He believed in peace and believed that peace could be such a powerful tool that he became peace, he personified peace.
In my community I want everyone to feel loved, to feel listened to, to feel part of a whole. Therefore I must begin with myself. I must be the love I want to have in my community. I must listen to others and give them space. I must be compassionate and not force my ideas onto others but teach by example. The time for this now.
As we move towards a new era and a new way of being we must decide what kind of world we wish to live in and then become what we want of others. With all that is happening astrologically and prophetically, we have to change ourselves in order to bring about the changes we so have the opportunity of doing at this very special time.
It is the time to realise that we are all in this together. That we are community, our neighbours, our friends, our families, our countries, our planet. It is no good treating my family as my community and then treat someone else who isn’t family badly. Our whole world, our whole planet is our community. What happens in another country impacts on us because we are a community, the family of man.
We are Divine, Sacred beings inhabiting a beautiful, divine planet. We do not always see it that way and when we look around us, it is easy to forget that we are beings whose very essence is LOVE. Now is the time to BE love, to live our lives as sacred, divine beings to recognise that we are all divine beings living as a community on this planet. It is time to be the change we want to see on this planet. It might not be easy, we might often forget, but we could at least keep trying.
Recognise that all on this planet are sacred beings, here at this time to make a difference. If they are making a difference you do not like, then be the difference you do like. Remember Ghandi when all around him thought he was on a loser, when the only answers at that time (and still are) was anger and to fight for what you wanted. He showed there was another way and that is just what we are here to do - show there is another way, it is not the journey but how we walk it.
Whatever we believe, how are we getting our message across? We can’t say I want peace and am prepared to fight for it. We have to become that peace. I want a world full of love and compassion, so guess how I need to walk my life, my journey. Well, there is no better time than the NOW. We have so much support to do this, even the planets are influencing this great change, it’s why we chose to incarnate at this time because we all wanted to be part of this great change for humanity and for our planet.
Let’s support each other and treat each other with love and understanding, compassion and patience, truly respecting others, listening and speaking through our hearts. Well, it’s worth a try!
It’s all good fun, but in the end when we look back, how will we judge ourselves?
Take care dear community, Love Patricia
A Time of Transformation
It feels quite stormy at the moment, doesn’t it. So many around us in fear, pain, and grief. Lonely, battered and bruised. So many disasters in people’s private lives. It sometimes feels like the whole of humanity is lurching from one crisis to another.
I feel that the whole planet is in a state of transformation. Transformation is being offered on all levels but of course transformation can be quite painful especially when we cling to what we know, cling to the old ways and limit ourselves by trying to ignore the pull of transformation.
The Hathors call this the point of the void. It’s like we are in this place of no-place. There is no point in planning, no point in seeing what our life will be like, in this void there is nothing.
Of course nothingness can be very scary, it can freeze us into doing nothing or panic us into doing too much. For some of us it’s a bit like being in the eye of the storm. Watching as the tempest swirls around us frightening us with it’s ferocity and strength.
As an unknown Hopi elder said:
“This could be a good time!”
“There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are torn apart and will suffer greatly.
“Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open, and our heads above water. And I say, see who is in there with you and celebrate. At this time in history, we are to take nothing personally, least of all ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.
“The time for the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves! Banish the word struggle from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.
“We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”
Know that this is all on purpose. That this time would come as was recorded in the Akashic records. It’s what we’ve been waiting for. Try to enjoy the void - being in the middle of the river. Take this time to look at your life and see what needs changing, look at yourself and see what needs changing. Don’t cling on to anything for in these times, nothing is real. We are being shown the illusion that we have taken for granted for so long. All is in change right now.
The void or the middle of the river is our resting place before the river moves us forward. We cannot cling to the bank but must take this opportunity for transformation.
Be as conscious as you can be and also be aware of others and how they might be feeling. It is time for compassion like never before. If you see a friend being blown around in the swirl of the storm then reach out and bring her/him into the eye of the storm, into the peace alongside with you, or if you see a friend clinging desperately to the bank of the river, then gently persuade her/him to join you in the middle of the river where you can both float. It’s not about saving everyone, it’s about having compassion for those you see struggling in the midst of the storm.
Whether you are being thrown around in the storm or sitting in the void, it can all be a scary place. It’s not for us to judge the journey of others but it is for us to have compassion for those who are terrified and who cannot see their future at the moment or know why certain things are happening to them.
Be at peace to know that this is temporary, this is sacred, this is on purpose. Encourage with compassion those who seem lost and frightened to share the eye of the storm or the void or the river, let them know that this is a time of transformation so nothing seems as it should, yet everything is as it should. Transformation is always hard work and all we are having to do right now is to sit it out or float in the middle of the river. It is exciting times if we can let go our fear and panic.
Don’t forget - ‘We are the ones we have been waiting for’
Much love, Patricia
We are living through some pretty amazing times. From the Harmonic Convergence in 1987 through to the powerful solar eclipse in 1999 and now culminating with this particular gateway from the Age of Pisces to the Age of Aquarius. Up until now all has been a rehearsal for this transition from one Age to another.
It doesn’t always look so good. With many people dying from Covid-19 and other illnesses. Governments becoming more right wing and more corrupt. Millions of people losing their livelihoods. So much suffering, tragedy and sorrow in the world. It is hard to remember what the truth of it all is.
If we believe in reincarnation, if we believe that we all have a Soul, or Spirit or a Divine part of ourselves then the question we must ask is why? Why did we choose to incarnate at this time. I know, looking back over history, there have been some pretty dark times and I’m sure that some of us incarnated in those times and experienced some pretty horrific happenings. So why choose to come back now.
Basically because there is a need for us to support others through this time of change. Many people are anxious, fearful and even terrified. It is such a time of uncertainly with the norm being removed and no one has any idea of what lies ahead. There are dire predictions on all fronts, from the governments, scientists, environmentalists, conspiracy theorists - all having their own favoured predictions for the future.
As we shift from one Age to another, the old way is being questioned. Structures that our societies have relied upon for decades are being dismantled piecemeal. All that we might have trusted in the past are no longer looking so stable.
We are needed at this time to remember that we are incarnated beings. We need to remember that we are Divine, Eternal beings. We need to remember that we are LOVE. We are made from the very same building blocks that so lovingly made up the cosmos, the whole of creation.
The Earth cannot do it on her own. She wants her children to pass through this particularly gateway with grace. So many of her children are frightened of the future for themselves and their families. We need to reach out to the community and to each other in a compassionate way to help each other through.
Now we don’t all need to be spiritual teachers, just spiritual. We don’t all need to be certified healers, we are all healers. Sometimes all it takes is a smile to someone else to lift their heart and help them forget about their problems for a short while. Sometimes a little chat with a neighbour across the fence helps them to remember there is support out there. We cannot go through this change of Ages unless we can hold each other’s hand in the fellowship of humanity, as Gaia’s children.
For those of us who chose to incarnate at this most wonderful, special time, it is a time of remembering, of healing ourselves at a very deep level and of reaching out to others who may not agree with your own beliefs, who may even shun you and unfriend you on Facebook. Bridges need to be built and hands need to be held. When you remember who you truly are, you can remind others with your smile, with your compassion and with your understanding.
This is the time to shine with compassion. Let judgements go with all the old structures as it is time to embrace the new which is love and compassion for all. This is what will heal us all. Gaia has not chosen to do this alone, she wants her children along with her to experience all she has to offer but from a new perspective brought on and enhanced by the Age of Aquarius.
In these last few dying days of the old Age of Pisces those who don’t want change, don’t want to let go of the old ways and structures are fighting to stay in control using all sort of underhand means available to them. Let them remind us of why we chose to incarnate, let’s tip the balance and bring more love, more compassion, more understanding, more smiles, more hands held. Let’s make every effort to bring this new energy into being. We don’t know what new structures might replace the old but we do know how to change energy, how to raise energy, how to open hearts and minds.
I am excited about the prospect of what we can do when we remember our divinity, the fact that we are eternal beings here to smile at our neighbours and just maybe they just might remember too.

What an amazing time we are living through. I asked for inspiration for this month’s Dragon’s Talk (I decided that while we are all in some form of lock down, although I prefer the term ‘Cocooning’, I would send out Dragon’s Talk monthly). I didn’t know the inspiration would come from David Icke.
If you’ve never heard of David Icke, he has been talking on all platforms about a conspiracy theory for many years now, he started off as a lone voice in the wilderness but now is not such a lone voice at all. I’m not going to talk about conspiracy theories or not conspiracy theories, but I do want to speak what I believe is the truth.
David was saying that if you can keep your heart open and keep a higher perspective on who you truly are, there is nothing to fear; remember you are a part of the infinite stream of consciousness.
I started writing this new Dragon’s Talk and thought of who to quote this month. As I was looking through my usual suspects, Rumi, John O’Donohue et al I was led directly to Jann Weiss’s book- Teaching the Monkey to Fly. I opened the book on what I have
quoted at the side in green. It ties in so neatly with what David Icke was saying and what so many of us have said over the years.
Now is the time to live that perspective. For so many of us, we’ve been given the time to make a stronger connection to that part of us that does have a higher perspective, a perspective that does not hold fear because it knows there is nothing to fear, we are all divine beings at play. If you can really take on that perspective, to look at the world and what is happening through the eyes of your Soul, make everything you say and everything you do come straight from the heart, from a space of divine love then there is no fear, not even the fear of death.
I don’t meant to belittle any of us grieving for a lost one at this time, I lost a dear friend this past month although not to Covid-19. Grief is the pain of loss and it is very human to grieve and it takes whatever time it takes for us to recover from that loss, whether weeks, months or years.
But this is a magical time to really get to know that Divine part of ourselves, to practice opening our hearts, to practice looking at all we come across through different eyes. A great practice for me is watching the news. My partner sits with me complaining that the BBC are not giving out the truth, that they are dumbing down the news while I do my best to see the game through the eyes of my Soul. I must admit I fail most of the time, but if I am seeing it as a game or as practice, then that alone is a step in the right direction.
This is the time to open to the truth of who we are. Not victims, but amazingly powerful, beautiful, Divine beings of love and light.
I want to finish with a quote from my friend Jennifer Hart:
“As we are attempting to find our way through the shifting ground of truth, half truths, lies, fear, and contradictory realities I am trying to focus on the reality I would like us to be moving into.
I don’t deny that there may well be many dark and hidden agendas, but I choose not to put my attention there - for where we focus our mind, fears and emotions we increase the likelihood of creating that reality. I do see what is going on out there, but I am really trying not to put my energy there (though this is difficult at times, indeed).
Sitting here in my house right now the only positive thing I CAN do is to hold Light and Love in my heart, try to remain grounded, and send that out, envisioning a world where love is the prime mover and all that follows from that.”
Keep practising. Much love, Patricia
Phew, I thought I’d never get this Dragon’s Talk written. I have been so caught up in the fear and anxiety of this pandemic that is sweeping across the planet.
Many people have asked me to ‘tune in’ and see what it is all about, but of course, when you are holding fear, it is very difficult to ‘tune in’ in integrity. I then heard someone say, somewhere - fear is not your enemy and that helped me to see beyond the fear, if you like - to see through it.
Knowing that for me catching the virus could be fatal with my age and my underlying health conditions the fear was up big time. I even came down with similar symptoms. I went through a ‘dark night of the Soul’ one night and realised why I was so fearful. I didn’t want to die. I had so much to live for, I am so lucky and held and supported. God, Goddess, the Universe WAS ON MY SIDE.
I was then not afraid to die. Whatever happened to me would be on purpose, would happen because of love, would be the most loving thing that could happen because I was held and supported and yes, loved. Living, I was loved - dead, I was loved. It is very hard to really grasp the concept that ais love.
I also realised that in my last Dragon’s Talk I was saying about how busy I was and never had time to do the things I really wanted to do. Well guess what - I said this was a magical year, I just didn’t realise in what form that magic was going to present itself. Of course I am not playing down the seriousness of this pandemic and the pain, fear, confusion, in fact - terror that it is causing, but I now have all the time in the world to do the things I want to do, as all my community commitments have been cancelled.
It has also given me time to heart search and spend time with myself, to see my inner needs and my outer behaviour. To be more mindful and more aware of the ways in which I am not so loving and not so aware of the needs of others. It is giving me time to really focus on who I am.
I think this is a magical opportunity for all of us to create a different relationship with our fears, to become more open and truthful with ourselves and with others. It is strange to think that most of us have to self isolate and yet it is a time for reaching out to each other, to remind each other that we are loved, to make bridges and paths to each other. To hold each other in love even when we cannot physically hold each other in love.
I have had some fantastic phone calls, messenger messages and emails from people I haven’t been in touch with sometimes for years and it is a joy, an absolute joy to walk those bridges into the arms of another.
The only thing I know about this pandemic is that nature is always trying to adjust and bring back the balance. We humans have thrown nature into such an imbalance that she is trying to re-address this in whatever way she can.
For us it is a lesson everyone on this planet has to learn, nature is about balance and we are part of nature, we are not somehow different or above nature, we are not aliens (although we sometimes feel that we are), we are part of this planet and have to hold that balance within us and within everything that we do.
Remember all is love, remember to bring in the balance into yourself and your life and remember to build the bridges to others which will bring joy into their lives. You are part of this planet, you are loved, when you share that love you remind others that they are loved. What a glorious opportunity to spread that love.
Be well, be the love, be your glorious self
Wishing you all a wonderful New Year and a very creative and fruitful 2020.
I was a little disappointed as very few people contacted me with regard to contributing or advertising or sharing, so this edition is just me.
I know everyone is so busy. We seem to spend our lives doing some very unnecessary things which feel very necessary at the time. I sometimes spend the whole morning on my computer but if I had to say what I had done for the morning, I couldn’t tell you apart from answering a few emails. I stopped going on to Facebook because I wanted more time to spend on what…….!
The things I really enjoy doing normally get put to the bottom of the pile and I intend to do them when the work is done, only the work never gets done. There is always more.
I know some people are amazing at doing what they truly want to do but I am not one of those. I intend to be and will put it in my job list of things to do.
I am afraid that my days of work, work, working are coming to an end. The reason is because, as I said in the last edition, we are coming into a time of magic. The energy is changing. No matter what is looks like on the news or hearing other people talk, the magic is beginning to evolve into form.
We are going through a very magical piece of space where everything is getting shaken up so that only the very precious of stones can come to the top. Only the most important things to do will present themselves.
When meditating the other day I felt as though my heart was splitting in two and out of these two halves a phoenix type bird tried to fly, to soar into the heavens, only it’s feet were stuck into the mud of my work ethic and as much as it flapped its wings, it was going nowhere.
Being presented with this image and feeling it too, I began to question what I am doing in my day to day life and why.
In this very magical time we will not be able to hold on to our old way of doing things, our old stuff. This magical time is making us stop, take stock and start the changes that need to happen in order that we may live magical lives.
I am working on not being attached. Not being attached to doing things to please others or prove myself. Not being attached to the outcome of all the hard work I do. Not being attached to whether it is important or not whether I do something or not. This is a big one for me, but I am working on it.
There is a need for us all to be free, free of the chains we put around ourselves. How can our hearts sing if we keep them chained up, imprisoned with our own beliefs, blocks and work ethics.
In this time of magic, we must allow the magic to happen. To change us. To change us at a deep level. To help us to trust that we will be provided for no matter what our hearts lead us to do. Let the magic happen.
Let me know how you get on, we might even be able to share experiences and helpful tips. Let our hearts rule - OK
