Earth timeline: January 2021 Location: North West England, UK
Good day, magical one,
Here we are again... a new year, a new day, and a new moment to shine.
Out of all the rain, mud and murk of the previous months in my part of the shire, winter arrived bringing a quick drop in temperature followed by a prolonged spell of frost, hail and snow flurries.
As I'm situated near the coast, it's rare to see heavy snow here but there has certainly been huge swathes of ice, born out of the rain-saturated lanes and meadows. The two lakes froze over and the air felt sharp and purifying.
Keeping warm has been a pre-occupation - particularly in my writer's nest. But the freezing conditions didn't stop me going out for jaunts beneath the icy blue to soak up the sun's tepid heat and sacred light codes. Salve for the soul.
Being outside to freely breathe in that life-giving prana is essential for boosting oxygen levels in our cells and maintaining health. It's so important to keep our biological vehicles in fine fettle.
These are challenging times on planet Earth, and certainly here in the UK where a loosely hidden nefarious agenda lurks beneath the equally nefarious fear-mongering, draconian restrictions and the spurious 'cure'. There is a virus, without doubt. But the most insidious virus is in the programme, and these systems and corporations that govern the people while desecrating the natural world are riddled with disease. These corrupt systems have to fall to make way for a fairer, healthier world - hence these chaotic times.
There's talk of a 'Great Reset' (planned for many years) but, when you look deeper, this only serves those (mostly unseen) bad pirates of the high seas that keep people and planet shackled. My focus is on the grass-roots creation of a harmonious world in alignment with natural law that is shaped by kind-hearted people rising together in freedom. There are thousands upon thousands now seeing through the veil of lies to realise their own incredible light and sovereignty. We truly are the ones we've been waiting for. The age of Aquarius is upon us. But first, we have to find our way through the fiasco to see what is possible, with feet connecting with the living soil and our crowns connecting with the stars. ⋆୭⋆
This quote by John A. Shedd: 'A ship is safe in harbor, but that's not what ships are for.'
Indeed, and I'm reminded that...
# Life is full of risks from the moment we are born. Nothing is certain. Let us charter our course with care and consideration for co-travellers while feeling the wind of freedom in our sails.
# It's time to navigate these stormy seas with courage, grace, kindness, common sense and wisdom to live fully, create healthy community with like-hearts, and ensure free passage on the Earth journey.
# We are the captains of our own ships. When we take care of our earthly vessels, we have the chance of a longer and more blissful life.
And, if you're feeling the weight of the world right now, bring yourself back to your solar plexus… your inner sun. Go within and let your soul’s light clear out any fear, overwhelm, grief, frustration and non-nurturing feelings. Dance with your shadow to heal. Practise self-care... create, craft, make, grow, walk, smile, relax and dream. Consider: what kind of world would you like to see? ⋆୭⋆
The grand star factories, birthing new realms, are at our feet…
Despite many moons of research, innerstanding, navigating the current situation, and raising my frequency and vibration with a song and a dance, I've continued to write and create.
My little booklet, The Alchemy of Night, is shaping up nicely. This collection of writing will also feature some of my latest illustrations.
I have one more story to complete (featuring Grandmother Darkness) before moving to editing and the next stage of preparations for going to print. I aim to have more news in the tune of soon.
And I've also been wondering whether to make this e-letter, The Lantern, into a print publication (initially UK only) with extended content focused on creativity, self-care, natural well-being, raising vibration, evolving consciousness, ideas... Is this something that you'd like to receive through your letterbox to read at leisure? Please do let me know.
The ice around here has melted (for now) and the rain has returned. But the slowly lengthening days offers more light. And what a treat to see the fire of sunset, filling the cottage with warm red and amber light. A tonic for the spirits.
As we embark on the 2021 timeline, let it be full of beauty, love, happiness, well-being, nature, creativity, kindness, truth and enlightenment. May we recognise what really matters and be at peace with ourselves and each other.
Many well-wishes. Shine bright, and I'll write again in the tune of relatively soon.
Love & Sparkles,
