SHOWING YOUR TRUE COLOURS

Do you believe in EARTH ANGELS ? Earth Angels are often people who cross your path for just a moment in time, but in that short moment they leave an imprint on your heart.

It was NEW YEARS EVE and I was going to celebrate with a friend at her home in one of my favourite places – Cronulla Beach. As I waited at the bus stop I thought about the year to come. Each year I knew the right calender would find me. And it did ! Tranquility was just what I needed in 2017. Such a lovely word tranquility...  it sounds so calming you can almost float on the energy it conveys of peace, quiteness, stillness…  After an emotionally  turblant year I was happy to see the back of 2016… yes tranquility felt good ~ it is my publishing name after all.

The insight I had gained of self was all the memory I wished to remember of 2016. Checking  to see if the bus was coming over the hill  I noticed an elderly lady making her way to the bus stop. Her cane followed the footpath closely, guiding her to her destination. We exchanged greeting as the lady settled beside me. Behind her sunglasses I noticed her left eye remained closed ~ damaged I wondered ? Once settled she asked me where I was heading. We chatted for a while and then she said “You need to show your true colours in  2017…” A little surprised I thanked her for her message. “Do you follow astrology?” I asked her. “No” she replied gently in a matter of fact way ” I just know things, I always have! I worked as a councilor and hynothripst for many years. I love being out and travel to the Blue Mountains regulary to spend time at a centre for young people with disabilities. We chatted until the bus arrived. ” I am not just a blind old lady ! “she told me as we parted. “My name is Jill. Remember to show your true colours .. ! ”

Peacock magic I knew was about showing you true self to the world. For years a peacock had visited my daughters horse paddock. One time when Mr Peacock ( as we named him) came to visit he had almost finished molting.  To my delight his last two beautiful  feathers dropped close to me before he walked away. It’s not always easy to show your true self especailly when you are processing deep pain. What I did manage to do in 2016 was say yes to a few invitations when I was still feeling emotinally depleted. That yes has carried me forward on a positive note into the New Year.

KNOWING IS NOT ENOUGH

You know change is on the horizon yet you haven’t connected with the energy of new beginnings. Is knowing enough to help you transition emotionally?   cropped-cropped-img_8293.jpg

“It’s Time” … flashed a neon sign in my mind! Yes I knew it was time, had known for years; yet in the knowing lay an emptiness. Knowing was not enough. Even when the knowing sang in every cell of my being, pulsating through my essence like a shooting star in the cosmos – knowing was not enough to facilitate change for me.

While my mind remained neutral to the tantalising promise of change, of new beginnings, my spirit hovered between two worlds. Was I ready to leave my comfortable, much loved city home? A home that overflowed with more abundance than I could have imagined. IMG_2197

In so many respects I was prepared to embrace the new- the knowing understood the truth of my readiness. Had I not experienced much change in my life already, moved homes and cities more often than most ? Importantly did I not now honour and appreciate myself for who I was, leaving myself free to enjoy life’s bounty ? Yes was the answer to both questions.photo-2-beautifil-reflections.jpg

Still I was torn. The adventurer in me longed to fill my life with endless experiences and embrace the unknown. Yet I knew in my heart I had not felt the tingle of change. Do you know that feeling? A tingeling, a shift in conciousness, an anticipation that runs through the body. That is what I was waiting to experience. Until then I cannot embrace fully the idea of new beginnings that would trigger a life away from the City I love to live in a Regional Ocean City. The ocean has been calling me and I had been on the verge of moving to a place I love when my life situation changed. It became clear to me I was now called in the opposite direction.

 If Life had taught me anything it was to trust my instincts above all else.Patiently I wait until the knowing and the feeling embrace each in the dance of change. Then I will know its time ! My cells will rejoice in the dance of change.

Until that time I focus on gratitude for each day and live fully in the present moment.
