Today as I was preparing to go for my almost daily bicycle ride, I stopped to glance over at one of our two rose bushes. They are planted in a small strip of ground between our living room window and the fence, and in previous years they have not been doing so well. Poor weather is usually the culprit here in the British Isles, but forgetting the rose food is also another factor. However, during the past 3-4 weeks, they have not only been producing a prodigious number of blooms, but they’ve grown over 6 feet in height!
As I gazed upon the unique orange blossoms, I thought that how easy it is to become inured to the beauty that is so close by somewhere. For a moment in time, all my personal thoughts faded into the background, and so did all the world’s tumultuous activity. Here it was just my consciousness taking in the beauty in front of me, and I became lost in a serenity that there are no words for.
Seems we take so much for granted these days, and most of us are so preoccupied that we just don’t really take in what is right at hand in our lives. It is one thing to look, it is quite another thing to actually see what it is we’re looking at. A mere thought about the to-do list, or a worry or three, and we are turning away from the miracle in front of us and exchanging it for another task, another obligation, and another round of problem solving. If you are an entrepreneur, most likely you live that experience 24/7, and barely come up for air. Marketing, tech hassles, virtual staff issues, grumpy clients…where does it end? When does the good life begin?
It can begin when we choose to slow down enough to take stock of ourselves, check and see if we’re occupying our body instead of hovering near it, and exercise our sovereignty diligently so we honor our own feelings and space to be as we are. Yes, I know…there are obligations a plenty. Working for a paycheck with a family to support during the upheavals of the past 17 months has been a grab bag of stress. Or perhaps you or someone you know has a health condition, or a psychological one. None of this we are experiencing is easy, and we can be so focused on survival mode that we overlook so much that there is to appreciate.
I have a very good book about spiritual seeking call “Doing Nothing” by Steven Harrison. It’s focus is on the modern quest for enlightenment and peace, but many of his perspectives could easily be applied to more mundane matters. The other book which I have not read, but recently ordered, is entitled “How to be Idle” by Tom Hodgkinson. The Puritan work ethic, or the work ethic imposed by a jealous God in the Old Testament (“…by the sweat of thy brow shall you earn your bread…”) set the human race on a high-stress path of exertion with a future promise of reward and comfort. The entire dogma of the Abrahamic religions is centered on a perfect hereafter, if we are all good boys and girls that is.
What is discouraged more today then ever before is that to be idle, or decide to withdraw from the Rat Race, is to be a reactionary. Someone who is anti-societal, and not to be trusted. For a raw example, read this recent article about loafing in China that appeared in the Guardian UK. In China it’s becoming a “thing” and they call it “lying flat”.
At this New Moon in Cancer take an inventory about your own life. Where do you over-commit? Where do you over-give? How do you cope with low grade anxiety or moments of high stress? Are you happy and peaceful, or anxious and fearful? Are you in your body, and loving your body, or not?
Here’s something to ponder - when there’s a lot of cortisol pumping through our bodies we are incapable of rational decision making. The cost for this is multi-dimensional too, and as Dr. Gabor Mate’s states, trauma or living with trauma is the single biggest cause for disease…period!
Your physical and psychic boundaries are yours to employ and maintain. No one else will do it for you. We are empowered, we are capable, and it is not selfish to be concerned with one’s own harmony and wellbeing. Slow down, breathe and look around. What do you see? There’s beauty within and without to appreciate. Remember it often.

Show Synopsis: On July 14th 1789 the starving and dispossessed citizenry of Paris, France rose up against the ruling class and feudal system. What followed over the next 4 years was a sincere effort to redress the grievances, but unfortunately a Committee for Public Safety was formed which instigated a Reign of Terror resulting in the arrest of 300,000 and over 25,000 deaths, including the king and queen.
Today we are immersed in an atmosphere of terror that is being orchestrated by a global committee for public safety - the medical establishment. The M. O. is fear. Asking questions is now discouraged, truths are being suppressed and censored, and individual liberties are being removed. If we are to grow beyond this moment and come out the other side, we will need to dig deep and call upon our courage. We can inspire many to actualize a new path for humanity. You and I are the Solution, and there are higher spiritual powers we can employ Time to recognize and claim that inner power. Through our courage and healing the Earth is renewed.

the State of the Planet Update

Back on September 11th, 2001 I was sleeping peacefully at my lover’s home in Eugene, Oregon. In a moment we were abruptly awakened by the phone ringing. She picked it up and her face turned to horror as a friend back in Virginia alerted us to the attacks on the World Trade Center complex in New York City. As she listened, he told her about the collapse of the South Tower as it happened before his eyes. In my head, I heard the words “It’s all a setup…do not lapse into fear.” We got up, showered quickly and dressed, and headed over to my house to watch thing unfold on my roommate’s big screen television.
Watching the constant reruns of the towers going down, hearing the chatter between reporters and cameramen and the hosts in various newsrooms, I could not shake the feeling that I was being brainwashed. After two hours, the numbness and shock set in, and we could not watch another moment. My senses were in overwhelm and I felt assaulted. I had to go out into Nature to regain my bearings. After much reflection and quiet, I restored my connection to my inner guidance and to that place in Universal Love that let me know that everything was okay.
Shortly afterwards I had to fly back to Virginia to conduct a mystery school workshop, and I was able to go to the airport, and fly on a mostly empty jet to the East Coast. Nothing got to me during that journey or the one back. The searches and pat downs, the automatic weapons being carried by guards in the airport…none of mattered to me. Of course, I did not believe the official story for one second and I knew that like the JFK event, this was an engineered act. After all, my inner voice confirmed that within seconds of my knowledge of 9/11 happening. I was saddened by the loss of life that day, and I knew that many more would lose their lives in the aftermath. I could not prevent any of what happened, nor what was to come. However, I also would not allow myself to be shifted from that solid ground of my own spirit.
In the middle of March of 2020, we all experienced a new 9/11, but one that would reverberate around the planet. After JFK, MLK, RFK, the Vietnam War (almost got sent over), Gulf War 1, 9/11, the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, the shock of Brexit and Trump, and now Covid-19, it has been one step up of chaos fear each time. Now the ‘enemy’ is supposedly and invisible one. Well, that is metaphorically closer to the mark than most realize, but that is also a discussion for another time. Today, I wish to focus on what we can do, indeed must do, to mitigate this irrational blanket of fear and the division it fosters. We need to find and cultivate the reminders that this world is not a dangerous place, that we do have a choice in how we wish to feel about our lives, and we also have a choice to empower ourselves so that we do not succumb to the merchants of fear.
The first place to begin is the issue of trust. This is tied to self-empowerment in significant ways. Do you trust yourself? Do you trust in God-Goddess-Creator-Universe? Do you trust your own body and the divine intelligence within it? Do you trust Nature? Did you know that there is a world ‘out there’ that is unaffected by the headlines? Trust is the cornerstone. When I was channelling, AA Ariel use to bang on about faith. “Faith is the science of knowing. If you know you are safe, that you are loved, that you are more powerful and creative than your ego mind would have you believe, then you would joyfully live a life of risk. You would know that you are eternal, even if the body and personality is not. Know that and you are free.” She was not advocating blind faith, but a faith anchored in the realm of the Absolute. I like that, and always have.
Those who are in deep fear these days have forgotten these principles, these foundational truths. They trust the science they say, but science is an imperfect set of postulates and theories, most of which arose from a study of biology and chemistry based on a mechanistic perception of Nature. Nature is not a machine, but machine-based intellects will always see that and nothing more. Your body is living physical evidence of the holographic energetic signature of your soul and its extensive combined experiences with others and the Universe at large. We are “integral” with the fabric of Creation, not mere objects in space observing what is happening, or thinking it is all happening to us or because of us. It is both/and!
I recommend looking past the appearances of the current theatre of chaos and spend a bit of time with the beauty of your own being, the beauty in Nature, the wonder of the stars above (try to ignore those satellites) and look with awe at the tiniest of creatures that are out in your garden or the woods living and loving no matter what calamities seem to be unfolding in the human drama. I am not saying to ignore what has been happening, but to make a clear space away from it on a regular basis so that you might begin to trust Life, your life, and this entire experience we are living through. As improbable as this may sound, ultimately you and I chose to be here at this time.
Beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, but it is also a quality that stands on its own and does not depend on our observation. Desiring to see beauty even in adversity, will help us to manage what it is we are all doing. We all yearn for a better experience. Perhaps it is not so far-fetched to imagine re-visioning and re-creating the Earth as a Paradise, and new Eden. By the way, that is the theme of my next ‘Revealing the Mysteries’ radio show this Sunday. See the details below for that.
Finally, we are not ever alone. Prayer does work, and as the call for aid and understanding goes out it is always answered back in some form. Since we do not know what we do not know, a beginner’s mind and childlike trust is essential. It also helps to be as wise as an owl, so we never allow ourselves to have that trust abused ever again.
Until next week, when I share what I feel the Total Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius is about, onwards in love and…

Times of crisis are like novel super-learning curves. They just will not leave us alone…or so it seems. I myself, possibly you, and the world at large appears to be suffering inside a nightmare that has no apparent end. Not all is lost however, we still have access to something beyond the noise and discord.
Step with me into an hour of immersion with Source Consciousness and Sophia the Planetary Wisdom Goddess, dreaming things into being through love and magic…allowing ourselves to drop our shoulders, drop our defences and once again remind ourselves that we are never alone in any struggle. Reminding ourselves of how divine our humanity is. We no longer can afford to place our sovereign natures into the hands of external authority, no matter how well-intentioned it appears to be.
If we want a new world, a new Eden, we will have to stand up for it. However, it begins with where our alignment rests. If that is sitting with fear and anxiety, then that will be our experience. If we select beauty, awe, and connection, then anything can be possible. Even a new Eden. Let us play!

You are not a machine.
Looking around these days, whether its in my Inbox, on my social media feeds, or listening to the chatter I pick up on in cafes, I am hearing and seeing loads of messages about becoming more proficient, productive and efficient in your career, workplace, home space and lifetstyle. A near constant litany of ways to improve this, hack that, and strategies for achieving more are even pervasive (as I see it) than in recent memory. In fact, they are becoming just as annoying as pop-up ads. Juxtaposed against this stream of consciousness (am I being too kind here?) are another set of messages warning us about the dysfunctional nature of our lifestyle choices, and how they are increasing our depression, affecting our health, and ultimately calling into question the whole basis of our way of life. Day to day living is becoming a search for the next dopamine fix when you check your smartphone.
Which messages are you listening to?
It seems as if the mindfulness movement has been hijacked to serve our need for ever more security, stuff and to secure some arbitrary ideal of what the “perfect live” looks like. Are we using the tools of metaphysics and spirituality as they were originally designed, or have we co-opted them for our personal ego agendas and possible gain? The wellness industry is a kind of oxymoron really, another adjunct or app to help us to continually cope and produce. However, what happens when you really slow down, and take a closer look, and reflect? The chasing is never-ending. The finding ever more elusive.
Is it all making you happier, or just more miserable than ever?
Worry, anxiety and depression, along with obesity, drug and alcohol addiction, and gender and racial abuses is on the rise. So are authoritarian right-wing politicians and governments. We’re behaving like chronically unfulfilled, hungry ghosts searching for a material or spiritual Nirvana. Perhaps further away from that goal than we'd care to admit. Ultimately, we must ask ourselves, what is it all for, and what is the point?
Whether we like it or not, we are also connected to every other living thing on this world, and we all are having a shared experience. (That's an even a deeper rabbit hole I could take this down, but that’s for another time.) If you are wondering what the most graceful and sensible next steps for reducing or eliminating fear, stress and anxiety in your life, then here is what I’ve found works for me, and for many of those whom I call my clients and friends.

“Live for yourself, and you will live in vain. Live for others, and you will live again.” – Bob Marley
If you are reading this, perhaps you’ve always had a deep and unresolved yearning to know the “truth” about everything. Or, maybe you’ve just had some hard knocks in your life recently, and nothing is making much sense to you now. No matter how you slice it, the reality is that there are very few people who are self-actualized on this planet, who are successful according to society’s definitions, and don’t seem to have a care in the world.
According to a report issued last spring by the World Health Organization (WHO) depression is now a major pandemic affecting millions worldwide, and it’s increasing with each passing month. Even the famous and successful actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson has recently admitted that he was so depressed as a teenager after his mother attempted suicide that he was crying all the time, and he now urges men to open to their real feelings. [Links below]
It’s not farfetched to think that we’re not really standing on solid ground any longer. The old beliefs, institutions, and explanations around our reasons for being alive and on this planet don’t cut it anymore, and as a species we are more stressed out, disconnected and yearning for meaning than ever before. Does it feel like you have no time or space to just BE, much less enjoy your life without having a moment’s respite from demands that our societies place on us? If so, then please read on.

During the run up to a major holiday season, we may find ourselves taking on extra burdens and responsibilities. We may still be very busy with our work, or perhaps raising a family and so forth, but suddenly there are even more tasks and lists to deal with! You may notice that this cycle is repeated each and every year, but you might find less and less patience with it, or you'd like to find some way to just relax, and stop running yourself ragged.
The holidays can also be a social pressure-cooker, one in which old hurts or losses may arise. When these are added in its hard to find much to celebrate or be thankful for. Perhaps you need to refresh your spirit, and learn a different way for yourself?
Relaxation is an art. We've forgotten much of this art, mostly because of our modern society and the influx and intrusion of so much technology into our daily lives. Electrostress is a real culprit in robbing our bodies of vitality and aliveness, while also feeling relaxed and centered at the same time. The background EMF fields or our smartphones put us into a flight or fight response we may not be aware of. But our bodies sure are reacting!
Our "work ethic" is also another stress point. We are expected to perform, to be productive, or somehow we're we feel we're not contributing or being effective enough. This is unheard of in indigenous cultures. The idea of "work" isn't even a word in some of these cultures.
Feeling really connected to yourself, and to anything you could deem greater han your chatterbox mind, is the only remedy for so much of what ails us. Discovering our divinity, or the Divine within, and getting in touch with our souls and bodies, is a habit that needs to be started, cultivated and maintained as the starting point for each day. Your immune system depends on it, for if we maintain the tension, our immunity can't protect us from even the common cold.
I've specialized in many energy modalities, guided meditations, intuitive spiritual guidance and more since 1997, and the one thing I know that is at the core of whole health is the art of relaxing. Sometimes what is needed is for me to assist someone to discover the source of their anxiety and then listen deeply so he or she can unburden's themselves of some old grief, or grievance. Another person may simply need help with how to make a conscious and loving decision for themselves around some important life matter. In another instance some personal or professional crisis propels someone to want to know how to access something greater than themselves, in order to discover their core purpose and deeper meaning and peace in their life...to find Spirit.
My role is to guide my clients into whatever is most needed for them, so that they discover their own answers and their own rhythms. This is a work in progress, or journey of self-discovery...not a one-off reading or predictive art. Whatever it is that my clients are confronted with, my primary role is to create a secure and powerful space in which they can rediscover the art of relaxation...to cultivate the sanctuary within. Once that's established, the real work can progress organically.
