Happy, Hopeful New Year
This might be a year of turbulence, suffering and death but somehow this year feels very different too. It’s not just that we spent the new year in lock-down, but that I have been feeling that there is happening a massive shift in consciousness. I feel a great change and, with it, excitement.
So many like minded people are coming together who share the same vision, a vision of a planet filled with love, with mindful consciousness and compassion, wanting to make communities to strengthen and support each other. With less judgement but more conscious discernment, with less finger pointing but more acceptance of each others differences.
This feeling of change which I think accompanies our slow entrance into the Aquarian age is being seen on the physical level now, with a new president in the USA, one who seems more compassionate and more caring, who is more outward looking in terms of the USA being part of the world rather than in isolation. Last week Jeremy Corbyn and friends launched a huge worldwide project called ‘The Peace and Justice Project’ which I feel will make a difference in people’s lives sooner or later. One of the issues they are dealing with is Environmental Justice which as some of you will know, is very close to my heart.
So I am very excited about this year and what it will eventually bring us. Yes, we are all in lock-down, yes, there are new variants of the virus, yes things don’t look too good for the world’s economies. We cannot ignore what is going on but when you look at these things with your heart - beyond what we get told on the news, look into the heart of the people on this planet and we can see, like a seed in the ground, the stirrings of new growth, new life amongst the old dead leaves, yes things are changing.
Of course those in power will want to keep control, massive manmade structures of money and power will not wish change, but try to stop that seed from sprouting, try to stop the waves in the sea. Change is inevitable, and we, who chose to incarnate at this time are here to see that it happens and give a little push from time to time.
We do need to take care of ourselves at this time, with broken sleep patterns, headaches, aches and pains, and sometimes depression we need to take the time to see to our own needs. Come together even if it’s online to share and support each other, create communities of support. Keep up with whatever spiritual practice you do so that you can nurture yourself to be available to others. This is a time for supporting, sharing and connecting but we can only do that if we ourselves feel strong enough.
This is an amazing time to be here, so let’s make the most of it and be all that we were born to be. Let’s make this year count. We are amazing beings, so let’s make this year amazingly beautiful.
Much love, Patricia
Birthing the Aquarian Age
This Solstice (21st December) is like no other we have experienced in our lifetime. Jupiter and Saturn are conjunct (next to each other). The last time they were anywhere near close to each other at the Solstice time was around the time of Christ’s birth. This heralded not only the birth of Christ but the birth of the new Piscean Age.
The Piscean age has always been about separation. Spirit and Matter, Male and Female, Science and Intuition, Heart and Head.
This Solstice not only happens at the time of this powerful conjunction but also has a grand cross in the sky at the same time. (For more astrological information please see www.heavenandearthcommunity.co.uk) What little I know about astrology, I do know that grand crosses are also incredibly powerful.
We are now at the point of birthing the new Aquarian age. The new age where there is more community awareness rather than individuality. Where we are more likely to act from the heart whilst having the knowledge that the mind brings us. Where there is much more acknowledgement of the positive aspects of the feminine rather than favouring only the masculine.
At means radical change. Obviously those with vested interest in the Piscean attributes of power will try to cling to the systems and structures that support and enhance their power.
So many of us have been feeling that we are in a void and going nowhere. It’s like being in the middle of a swimming pool but you can’t see the sides so you don’t know in which direction to swim. This is all very normal as we prepare to birth this new age. We have been facing and letting go of many issues that no longer serve us, of negative beliefs which we might have lived with for a very long time and suddenly we feel fed up with it and want to leave behind. We have been preparing for this new age to be born and much of the old cannot be taken into the new with us.
We have been and are still in the process of looking for and exposing the truth. As we continue to do this, old systems must crumble and fall. There will be many scary moments, birthing is never easy, it’s mostly painful and scary, but remember that we have so much support. As the stars, planets and the earths magnetic fields align, we can feel supported. This is the Age we have all worked, sometimes over many years, to birth. As a friend of mine Marcus Mason (Astrologer) says, “If we are alive at this time, it is because we agreed to be here to be the midwives of this new Age.”
As this Age is born, we will need to nurture it, to care for it. We can do this by working on the Earths energy lines (ley lines, dragon lines, song lines) but most of all we can work on ourselves. Leaving behind what is no longer our truth. Opening our hearts to others, being more aware of being part of a community, nurturing each other. I am always amazed by people who work so hard for the earth but have very little time or tenderness for other human beings, as we are all divine spirit beings so we are also of this earth, part of her, her children. Our body is Gaia’s gift to us, when we heal ourselves we heal our planet too.
I suggest that we try to enjoy the void. So if you feel you are in the swimming pool and can’t see the sides, make it a thermal pool with luscious warm water. Make it an open air pool so you can float and watch the stars at night, look out for that bright star which is Jupiter and Saturn, think about the three wise men who saw that same conjunction in the sky approximately two thousand years ago.
This is the time we all being waiting for and preparing for, so expect the unexpected. Try to keep your heart as open as possible and to be consciously aware of your thoughts and actions.
This is a magical time and maybe we all had to live through separation and isolation this year in order to prepare ourselves for this very special time.
Let’s spare a few thoughts for humanity some time during Solstice on Monday 21st. Let’s gather as many people as possible in our hearts to welcome them to this birthing.
Have a truly wonderful Solstice and Christmas time. Let’s see what the new year brings and whether we are ready within ourselves to embrace it.
I end with this: “I’m staying up on New Year’s Eve. Not to welcome the new year in, but to make sure the old one leaves.” - Much love and many virtual hugs, Patricia
Time for Truth
It is amazing just how many different beliefs people have, from Trump being a hero to Trump being the worst thing that has happened to the world for a long, long time. To cabbage being good for you, to cabbage being a poison, to climate change is manmade to climate change being a natural phenomena. Of course our beliefs are important to us, it sometimes makes us feel important and sometimes helps us to feel that we are more knowledgeable than others.
I don’t think it really matters what you think is the truth, after all as a wise old woman once said “When I was young I knew everything and now that I am old, I know nothing”. I echo what that old wise woman said because I do believe that I know nothing. I don’t know who is right, I don’t know the truth of some of the claims that others make, I don’t know if I use a certain skin product that it will get rid of my wrinkles, I don’t know if face masks protect you from Covid or not, I don’t know and what’s more, it doesn’t bother me.
Of course we all have different experiences, different histories, different ancestors, different upbringing and education, so I can understand why we all have different beliefs. What is important though is firstly, seeking the Truth of those beliefs. With all the different beliefs abounding on this planet at the moment, the only place you will know the truth is in your own heart. All the answers are there. If I don’t ‘feel’ the skin product will do much for my wrinkles, I won’t buy it, if it ‘feel’s somehow ‘right’ then I will give something a try. The heart holds the truth because that is your Higher Selfs communication space. You won’t always hear words but you can ‘feel’ what is right.
Of course sometimes your Higher Self gives you an answer you can’t understand or doesn’t seem like the answer you were looking for. Don’t look for an answer, don’t try to make the answer fit in with what you already believe. Your Higher Self has a different perspective on your life, it focusses and holds the Truth of you being a Divine Sacred Being having a human experience, so it will not always tell you what skin products to use unless it is important to your experience here on this planet and/or to aid your wellbeing.
Secondly, is it also important how you share your beliefs. Do you share your beliefs with compassion? Do you share your beliefs with understanding for the others who might not share your point of view? Do you want/need everyone to believe the same as you just as the missionaries did? Is there room in your heart for those who might disagree with you or do their disagreements make you feel challenged.
This planet is so divided with everyone’s beliefs being more important and somehow more True than the others and this division is causing so much heartache with families, neighbours and friends fighting each other when they are not agreeing to the beliefs that other members might believe.
As the planet shifts into the new age, the age of Aquarius, let us shift into a new understanding of each other, a new shift into open heartedness, not just for our friends and those who agree with our point of view but for those who don’t agree with us too. What kind of planet do you want to live on - one where we are all divided and fighting each other or one where there is open hearted understanding of each other, where there is compassion and forgiveness.
We all are here to assist this enormous shift to a higher consciousness, something the ancient peoples have believed in and have been speaking about for centuries, we are here to awaken and to assist. But whatever we believe our job to be, let us do it with love, with care and compassion. We are not here to bomb each other with words, expounding our beliefs at every opportunity, is that really helping this shift?
We are all on this journey together, Divine Beings experiencing this total shift in consciousness on a planet shifting to a new frequency of energy. We incarnated at this time in order to assist at this time, let’s do it, but let’s do it together. There is so much division on this planet, at least let us friends, families, neighbours work together to build for ourselves a planet we want to live on, were meant to live on. Let’s keep our hearts open and our minds open so that we can at least understand what someone else is trying to convey to us.
This is not the time for fear, this is the time we get to appreciate these special times and to greet our challenges with joy, we are all in this together and I am so thankful for that.
Lots of love to you all, stay safe, courageous and loving - Patricia
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.
