Freedom from Expectations

I have been moved over the past few
months to reflect and meditate more than usual and in so doing, letting  go trying to push that great big River of Life, allowing more of Life to come to me rather than me pursueing Life.  These following words of wisdom, and I can't remember who wrote them, flagged up in perfect time to share in my Blog.

"Each moment is a source of joy. Pause, especially if you have lost track of joy, to discover its presence in this moment.

When you are enjoying yourself hold the joy as lightly as a flower.

Don't hunt for joy; it will hide from you if you do.

Accept no substitutes. By all means do that which you enjoy, but do not expect external stimulation to provide you with joy. It comes from within.

Be free of judgement. Every judgement harbours a pain within you. Let others be as they are; let your focus be on being your own best self.

Your best self is joyful. If you are trying too hard, you'll lose the joy and slide away from your best self.

Bin beliefs that are not valid under Universal Law. For instance, 'As soon as I start enjoying myself, someone comes along and spoils it', is not a Universal Law, but something that happened to you often enough for it become a working hypothesis for a grumpy martyr lurking within your character. Love the grumpy martyr, tickle its tummy like an old dog. Scratch it behind the ears, but don't take it too seriously.

Forgive all. It's a great way of releasing the baggage of the past and travelling light.

Be free from expectations. So, something didn't turn out the way you expected or hoped? Find joy in how it did turn out; don't mourn the path not taken.

Turn to the Sun. Let it speak to your heart. The Sun nurtures the joy within you by breathing into its flame.

Witness the beauty of the Earth".

More about 432Hz and Earth Gong.

SoundTouch Sound Healing and Sound Meditations relate to "Mathematics of the Universe" to harmonise and balance your whole being.
The principle sound and vibration in each SoundTouch session is provided by Planetary Gongs of the Earth (432.Hz), the Sun and the Moon. The Gong is believed to produce the Universal Sound of Om and creates "a vast ocean of sound" to still the mind, soothe the spirit and resonate the chakras.  Alongside other instruments and being in nature in the Sound Lodge, the rejuvenating sound waves in this meditative experience are healing, harmonising and energising.

It is said that 432Hz vibrates with the universe’s golden mean PHI and unifies the properties of light, time, space, matter, gravity and magnetism with biology, the DNA code, and consciousness. When our atoms and DNA start to resonate in harmony with the spiralling pattern of nature, our sense of connection to nature is said to be magnified. The number 432 is also reflected in ratios of the Sun, Earth, and Moon, as well as the precession of the equinoxes, the Great Pyramid of Egypt, Stonehenge, and many other sacred sites.

"This work with energy and music is the spiritual work for the coming age.  The seed of the spiritual is found in the physical.  In the heart of the cells, in the spiral of the DNA, is written the divine story.  When scientific research, spiritual practice and artistic work together, heaven and earth are in resonance"  Fabien Maman.

How 432Hz is inspiring me and the power of silence

An article in Collective Evolution called "Here's why you should convert your music to 432Hz" came just at the right time for me. I am looking to explore new means of  engaging people and explaining the benefits of my particular approach of sound meditation with Gongs. Beautifully in perfect synchronicity, whilst playing at a Festival last week, I played solely gongs for an optimal 45 minute immersion in sound followed by the loudest and most profound silence I have ever experienced. There was no need or desire for anyone to talk and we sat in silence for 20 minutes and then gently and very mindfully people went on with their evening in a beautifully resonant state. Indeed someone described the experience as "a vast interspace of beauty."
So for me this heralds a new approach starting in September, 45-minute Gong Bath meditations followed by silence, to encourage people not to engage too quickly with their busy minds.

A Listening Process?

I always feel encouraged  by the presence of synchronicity in listening deeply to inner guidance, when 3 similar messages come together.  Then it is up to the individual to take notice and create ways to translate the inner guidance into life's journey.

First for me, there is the calling to learn the Gayatri Mantra which, as a devotional sacred prayer, is believed to spiral through the Universe from the heart of the chanter, appealing for Peace and Divine Wisdom for all and, as I am getting more familiar with the Mantra, something is definitely transforming within. Thanks go to the wonderful Marnie Cameron of the Vault Wellbeing Centre for her recent inspiring workshop on the Gayatri Mantra The Vault Wellbeing Centre

Second, communing with the Universe with Gongs and Voice, contributes hugely in creating a new energetic environment for peaceful interaction.
Just need to do more of it.

Third, being inspired to read Leonard Bernstein's message "This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before".

Conclusion?  We need to follow our Soul's longing.  Mine is to Sing and Gong "Peace into the World".

Excess Baggage/The Message of Dragonfly

This is a photo taken of one of the many beautiful dragonflies at Dalya Life.  Dragonfly's message is about "becoming who you are rather than who you think you are".

With no phone, no internet, no cooking etc  husband Trevor and I soaked up all the healing energies of the sun and a wonderful group of like minded souls with Chris Sell and Carrie Harris at the Heart of Peace Week at  Dalya Life Retreat Centre in Turkey. Links here: Chris Sell Dalya Life Turkey

A process of  unplugging and letting go with inspiring evening meditations, nourishing food and Peace unfolded. Seemingly along with the accumulation of topping up my physical  body with all this nourishment was the message that if we as humans are serious about healing Mother Earth, we have to be more committed to healing and strenghtening our earthly physical body.  I think this is a case of the microcosm and the macrocosm.  How can we expect  Mother Earth to "heal" when our own eartly bodies are clogged and congested?

Sure enough on my return I weighed myself and nearly 2 kilos had crept up on me and I hadn't even taken notice. Challenge and feelings of excitement renewed and deepened a commitment to creating a more honed personal mind/body and the joyous feeling that, as I chip away at the "old heavy" me, I am contributing to something much greater than I

Hopefully we can all rejoice and enjoy taking part in stripping away at our individual and collective human heaviness and Blessing our Earthly Body as a part of Mother Earth.

Summer Growth of 2015

"Let Roses bloom and Love to grow in the garden of Our Heart"

 I remember writing these words years ago and not only are they fitting for this new beautiful rose picture taken by Trevor at Dalya Life Retreat Centre in Turkey a month ago, but the words are also so appropriate to what I feel is happening in the world around us, if only we can let ourselves see and feel the Love unfolding.

Have been off air blog wise for nearly 2 years but sometimes things take that long to integrate, so am going to enjoy the reunion with Blog rather than give myself a hard time. On the unfolding Love front I have been profoundly moved by Chloe Goodchild's 3 day workshop last weekend in Edinburgh. I have made a deep soul connection to Chloe's Singing Field "Out beyond ideas of right and wrond doing, There is a field, A singing field, I'll meet you there, I'll meet you there". I give thanks for all
