Another journey to the Swamp land today as I welcome in the New Year according to the Mayan Calendar. What a beautiful sunny day it was! The light was magical, different, illuminating spaces I had not seen before, like net curtains being drawn back from a window, showing me a new view of the world and the energies of new light coming in!
There was a quietness at the swamp, yet there was a lot of birdsong, like the birds were heralding in the New completely aware of the changes occurring on all levels and with a Full Moon approaching tomorrow! It's time to awaken to the new in all ways. Time to heed the messages from the Universe and Spirit and what divine messengers of spirit were at the swamp today.
Walking along the pathway I took a photo and wow the light was amazing! For the message was start lighting new pathways of Self! The path is now clear of obstacles as the fallen branch laying on the path from the Sunday's walk had now been cleared! Signalling full steam ahead! Time to get moving, moving!
I was drawn to stop at certain place along the pathway, feeling the curtains of the swamp parting, revealing a beautiful black swan! Now I have never seen a black swan at the swamp before and it felt like spirit was showing me a divine sign to take notice of. In the animal kingdom swans are the symbol of Ascension.
Swan's message it's time to connect and see your inner beauty. A time to embrace the power of self. Trust and believe in your true nature, the grace of self, opening to the wonder and mystery of life!
Connecting to the energy of Swan I could feel and see my inner beauty, the power of my inner sun shining like a diamond in the sky all else dissolving. Tears of joy flowed at those realisations, surrendering to the Oneness of all that is and the grace and love of my heart.
I left the swamp along a different path, one that took me past a grove of trees where low and behold there were some Black cockatoos! Then all of a sudden one flew out of the tree, fanning its beautiful red tail, saying I'm giving you a message please take note! Who could not when such beauty is staring you in the face. Unfortunately these Carnaby black cockatoos are a threatened species so I sincerely hope with all my heart they can be protected from this.
The Black Cockatoo's message, surrender to the changes that are to come forth, trusting all will be revealed in its own divine time. Be aware and open to new opportunities as they present along your pathway, both metaphorically and physically, going with the flow of life.
Interesting that the Black cockatoo appeared around the time of the Lunar Full Moon as they are seen as a lunar bird, associated with feminine energies and the creative forces at play. So harness the forces of creativity in your life.
It hasn't always been like that for me as I have been on a journey to wholeness for a number of years with Chronic fatigue, Fibromyalgia and lyme dis-ease, my messengers, bringing my attention to say hey there are things you need to become aware of and heal. There is a bigger picture and a bigger purpose for you. It's been a journey of understanding self, the inner self, a bit like peeling back the layers of an onion. I also now understood and accepted I could not possibly have known all that I needed to know at the beginning of my healing journey. It's true, understanding and wisdom have been shown to me when I have been ready to listen, to see and not before. How could they have been present when I was not present with awareness to receive the wisdoms and teachings.
Patience, faith and trust have surely been my teachers. Yes there have been times I have felt like giving up when the light at the end of the tunnel seemed so far away. Who wouldn't when the pain body is so great and you don't have the energy to lift your head off the pillow let alone get out of bed. When your immune system completely crashes and it takes as long at takes to rebuild.
Change comes when you choose to embrace courage and the strength to travel to your inner self, opening your heart to the love of you, beginning that sacred journey where the alchemy of self, the ordinary is transmuted and transformed into the greatest most extraordinary version of you, the one who is true in all ways.
I realised today after I got home and began interpreting the signs that were presented to me that I had in many ways abandoned My Self. For years I felt like the ugly duckling not feeling I was beautiful, worthy of love, not good enough etc, not really feeling I belonged anywhere to be honest. Funny I was always drawn to reading that story as a child. Bullied, teased and rejected at school, a sensitive soul, who has never felt confident in the world, allowing myself to shrink and hide away, fearful of allowing my true self and my gifts to shine. I can tell you my fear has been big, drowning out Love, so there was very little for me. Thankfully that imbalance is now reversing as I become friends with fear and those other darker aspects of self and there is a now a greater flow of Love.
It's been a journey of the heart, a soul awakening, to unconditional divine love as the fear of being seen, speaking my truth etc etc gradually fades away. My awakening journey continues as I open further to my true nature and my truth. I have learnt a lot along the way, lessons and wisdoms that I would like to share. Its been a journey of the spirit, navigating the garden of my heart, weeding and clearing that inner jungle, tangled with so many things, choking my soul, starved of love, stifled with fear. Thankfully the baggage and jungle are clearing out!
It's about forging a relationship with self. A never ending journey that takes one on many twists and turns as one navigates the pathways of the heart. Its important to be really honest and real with your self as much as you can. The journey of self is a work in progress as things you once you thought had cleared are triggered again offering another layer to be peeled back, to be let go of! It takes as long as it takes with all the highs and lows along the way.
Now I begin a new journey in the garden of my heart and soul. Remembering and awakening to my inner beauty, my grace allowing all that to shine forth. Graceful like the swan, no longer an ugly duckling. Did you know that swans have 7 vertebrae in their neck? Opening and trusting to the grace and wonder of the mysteries as they appear in divine time and ways.
The journey of the spirit has no timelines. It only asks that you surrender to the sacredness of your journey, be patient and walk to the beat of your drum as you tread your own unique path peppered with the lessons and challenges that you came here this lifetime to master if you choose to. We are all special beings, all capable of developing our intuitive abilities, our talents and gifts.
Sharing my journey may awaken you to understanding aspects of yourself and your own journey. Know that you are not alone. There are others who traverse similar pathways, even though our soul's purposes are different.
My challenges, obstacles and lessons in all areas of my life are all gifts that have allowed me to open to ME! All of Me. I share this with you to give you hope that the impossible is possible. That a new life awaits not just for me but for you also!
In my journey I have been fortunate to work with LUXOR Light a multi dimensional healing system, working with the ascension frequencies of LUXOR Light that enable one to clear the chaos within, opening to your true nature, connecting with your higher self through a program of meditation. More on than as there is so much to write it cannot all be covered in this one post along with my own journey.
Oh yes on the footpath on the way home was a parcel that had obviously lost the way to its intended recipient. I picked it up intending to take it to the post office. As I got closer to home I saw the postie and gave the parcel to them! How is that for serendipity!
The significance of the parcel on my pathway was spirit showing me there would be gifts of nice surprises coming to me!
With a heart full of love and gratitude for all that I receive, as well as all that I give to nature and life I am content and at peace as I come home to Me, beginning a new chapter in my journey powered by Love.
I am a LUXOR Light Energy Specialist, accredited healing practitioner, Meditation Facilitator and teacher. Plus I am also a Flower Alchemist and Colour Therapist.
