A beautiful reminder from nature came to me yesterday with the vision of a beautiful white lily in a murky pond. We are reminded to stand clearly in our authenticity for all to see. Thank you beautiful lily.
Lily flower so pure and white
Shining your eternal light
Reaching out beyond the mire
Clearly defined, how you inspire
Quietly humble, yet with no doubt
Petals divinely reaching out
From the jewel at your core
Beautiful flower, I thee adore
Simply being for all to see
Standing in authenticity
No pretension, nothing more
Than being a you we can’t ignore.

When I went into meditation the day after the Shanona first appeared, the Christ light was still shining out from the mountain. The blue pool appeared in front of me again and I bowed down and put my head into its depths.
I was taken inside the light where I sat in the great void where I felt such peace. There was a primal sound in the void that seemed to go round and round, like “om", and I found the sound bellowing out from the depths of my being. Towards the end of my meditation, a voice spoke to my inner ear:
“Today I took you to the great void at the centre of your heart, but also at the centre of your universe, at the centre of all universes and at the centre of the Earth.
You felt the peace and the ever evolving circle of fruition, the sound of nothing, of the circle, of nought. Such depth, such peace, such clarity, such love, such dark, such light. Endless and infinite. Round and round.
This is the infinite depth of the blue pool, the depths of everything and nothing. The depths of inner space and outer space, the infinite power and the infinite secret. Such infinite sound, such infinite space, endlessly revolving and unfolding. Primal, primordial, timeless.
Feel how open and safe you felt. Feel how you surrendered and trusted, even in the darkness.
It is now time to trust and believe. The infinite blue pool allows you to see the unseen, to know the unknowable, to trust and believe in the very depth of existence.
The pool of manifestation and all knowledge is deep and dark, but it is infused with light when you trust and believe. Know the fluidity of existence. Know the ripples and outward expansion of all that is. Notice how the pool melds and makes way, how it smooths over and returns to peace. Break through the surface and you are transported to the inner void and depths of all that is, to the hidden knowledge and secrets of life.
The pool is your teacher and your reflection. Within you too is all that ever has been and at your heart is the core of all existence. Timeless, limitless and full of depth, with the echo of all creation rumbling around your heart and chest.
As above, so below. As without, so within.”
Then I saw the Shanona bounding around all excited.

I have been guided that it is time for all that has been hidden to be revealed. I have been guided that it is time to trust ourselves and love and accept the uniqueness of who we are. Yet I have been hiding and I have been keeping secrets. I mentioned in my first post this year that I would share the guidance I have been given over the past couple of years. I am starting today, because I am no longer afraid of revealing who I am. Here goes.
Back in April 2018 I had just gathered with a group to send love and light out to the world. In my own meditation the next day, I saw light shining from a mountain top with Christ transmitting light out across the world. With my inner ears I heard “A new dawn is coming, a new dawn is coming”. There was light coming up from the horizon that was so bright and so golden. A blue pool appeared in front of me and in my meditation I bathed my head in the pool.
Then a group of dark greeny brown creatures appeared sitting in front of me in a dark cave with red rims to their eyes and mouths. They wanted to talk:
“We are not from the Earth, and we have heard about your practice and we want you to join you. Please can we gather with you for your practice so that we can learn.”
Who are you?
“We are Shanona and we have come from a distant planet. We are gentle creatures and we are distant cousins of the tuatara on your planet. We do not really have much to say, our message is in our being. We are childlike and obedient and we have come to help the transformation. We were attracted by the light and we want to join you. We love to be in the light and our hearts are open.
We can teach you how to keep your heart open and to live with child-like joy. You can see from our appearance that looks are not important. We live in connection to our higher selves, each other and the Creator. Our vibration of one of love and acceptance. We want to share with you and join your practice to transmit our vibration of love and acceptance as you transmit your dearest trust and hope for a more peaceful, harmonious, universe where all hearts are open, and connection to the Creator is the sound of the universe again.
We are usually hidden, and have been buried deep within our own planet, but we noticed changes and we now wish to share our hidden talents, of how to be in acceptance and open-hearted love.”
I bowed to these beautiful creatures and felt truly humbled by their presence, their innocence and gentle acceptance and love and realised this was their humble gift to me and to us. Their appearance was a beautiful reminder that it is now time to reveal that which has been hidden — our true selves, our gifts and talents, without judgement of how we think those will appear and be received by others. Thank you dearest Shanona.

Today I am sharing with you the guidance I received at the beginning of the year when I was worried about my tendency to procrastinate and drift. Old fears of being unclear of my purpose had surfaced and I was questioning myself and which direction to take.
I am sharing because I know that we all have common fears and concerns at different times and I want you to also bathe in the warmth and compassion of the guidance I received. And remember this guidance is available for us all to receive, when we stop and listen.
I sank into meditation and the warm of the guidance flowed into my consciousness. This is what I heard:
“Beautiful one, we are here, we are here. We hear all your worries and concerns and we are here to impart to you great love and compassion. So that you can truly understand how to approach yourself.
Be gentle, be kind, as you would a child when you are centred in your truly compassionate heart.
Love yourself. Truly love yourself and then you will be free.
Smile as you see what you perceive to be your weaknesses. Smile at your distractions, at your impatience, at your fallibility. But know you are not alone, for we are here.
Create structures for yourself when you need structures. Allow yourself to flow when you need to be, to be you. Be in your flow, but create structures when that is what you need to move forward.
Narrow your focus. Play the desert island game. Why would you take? Who would you be, if you were washed up on a desert island? Choose one and give that your focus.
You have to be in the zone to receive. Trust and open yourself up to share and create, for you are a great creator. Remember the zone/space of receiving and co-creation.
Let the birds sing and be true, be true. Quell the fear, quell the doubt and be who you are.
You are far more adept at being in the physical plane than we are. So own it. Be it. Love it. Grasp it with both hands and create. For that is why you are here: to create. You have an open slate. There is no predetermined blueprint that is set in concrete. Yes, you can draw upon what has been before, but you are here to create, to be and to create.
Well done, well done my child. Open yourself to be free, free from all the misdirected drivers. Only engage necessary drivers when you have a particular destination to reach. Then when you reach any selected destination, feel free to be. To dip your toes in the infinite ocean. To be soothed by the lapping of the waves of eternity, of creativity unbounded. Of new beginnings, of endless ends and infinite being. Be fully present with how it feels and wait in full preparation for the next vehicle to take you to your next destination.
Acknowledge your successes each day. Be true to you, You are an open channel. Practice and accept, accept, accept.
Clear your mind of comparison and reside in your heart of infinite beauty, love and compassion; of acceptance and trust, where you simply allow your gifts to unfold in all their beautifully simple majesty.
Your choices are yours and your choices are gold. There is no right or wrong.
Cease being distracted by others, by what others have chosen and are touting as “the way”.
Choose for you. Be you. I am who I am and I am at one with all that is.”

2.30 am and I am awake again. Morepork (ruru, New Zealand night bird, like an owl) is calling, a new moon has been emerging. I ask why I have been kept awake again, third night on the trot, and hear a message in the dimly lit darkness. It was a personal message for me, but as I read it now for the first time this afternoon, I realise there is a message for all of us who harbour self doubt. This is what I heard:
“Structure, you need structure to prevent the slipping away of time in the plane that you are currently ‘alive’ in. You really are responsible for every single action that you take, you know that you have a choice. You can get up earlier and you can go to bed earlier. You can introduce structure.
Why have you stopped in your tracks? You feel the worry emerging, the fear of the unknown that lurks beneath the surface, waiting to be unearthed.
You hear the voices, the ones that whisper and discount all that you could do. That call you to question what you are here for; that lead you to believe that it is all a waste of time; that there are others, too many others doing the same thing; that no one is here to hear you, to listen; that you have nothing worth saying. That you are more comfortable doing nothing, letting it all slide.
We are here to beseech you that this is not so. That you are here to shine your light as you are all here to shine your light. As you shine your light, so the world gets brighter and the naysayers quieten. Your naysaying thoughts quell and allow self worth to grow from within. This then warms your heart and the hearts of all those resonating at the same vibration. This is why you are here to shine your light. So do not question the light that shines from within, it is not for you to know how this will play out, whose heart is to be.opened by the light that you shine, and how this will affect the course of events and all that is to occur in this world and all those worlds that exist in all dimensions. There is so much more at stake that simply you.
The light is out of the box and it is not for you to question and make judgements. You are here to simply be and to do from that being, from the purity that is there within your heart.
Have compassion with yourself and have compassion with those who are in your pathway, whose presence allows you to grow.
You have been given so many possibilities for shining your light and in each and every direction you pull back and diminish yourself.
The excuses are abounding and you believe them, but you are their creator. So in this sense you believe in yourself. The irony is that you are indeed a great manifestor and creator, but you only believe in yourself when you are diminishing yourself? Why not believe in your magnificence?
Sit in quiet contemplation of the nothingness, in the darkness in the night sky and be gentle on yourself too.
The moon allows herself to disappear into nothingness to reflect and then she emerges again, sharper and brighter, and she allows this brightness to grow, and become full.
Everything ebbs and flows, life goes in waves and always rises again, so there is no nothing, there is no settling for less, there is no final decision of diminishment, for the light always comes back to shine brighter, sharper and grow.
The morepork called you to pay attention in the darkness. There was much noise and excitement, but see how quiet he is now, at peace as you attend to the sliver of light in the darkness and reflect upon your own light.
Remember change is upon you and it is time to make adjustments. Change is upon all of you on the earthly plane. It is time to take heed of all that you feel and reflect upon the messages that come to you from nature and from the dimensions that you are steeped in. Remember, what you know and feel is true. So trust dear one, trust. And make time to allow yourself to grow and to allow your light to shine and believe in yourself."
A poem was then gifted in honour of the new moon who had been waiting to be seen and heard over the past three nights. Thank you moon for your beautiful sharing.
New Moon Emerging
Sliver of silver
Shining in the dark
Boldly carved out for all to see
Reflector of light
You disappeared from view
But that was so you could simply be
Goddess so bright
Reappearing from nothing
You follow your path unfailingly
Your message is clear
It is always important to reappear
Knowing your truth
And trusting your path
Even when you have been swallowed up in the dark
Always come back
Sharper and brighter
Growing and revealing yourself to be lighter
So clear and defined
Thank you new moon for life redesigned.

The last two nights I have been awake a lot of the night and I have been reminded of a message I received a couple of years ago when I also lay awake at night. I realise I have been negligent with my writings.
I have put into practice something I have been guided to do over and agin over the past two years: clutter clearing. The clearing has lead me to re-read the writings I received over the past couple of years, and I realise the poignancy and magnificence of the messages. I remember my commitment to share.
As I lay awake last night I re-read a message received on 16 November 2018, from "the brotherhood" who said they "have been watching over us for all eternity".
Their message specifically talks to me about writing, but replace writing with whatever it is that you are here to do. This is what they said:
"We wish to urge you to write as this is your true calling. Your time is coming and we wish to support you and urge you to follow your talent and your God-given passion.
When you do not get on with your work, we are here to nudge and cajole you to make sure that you do not go back to sleep. It is time for you to wake up, for you have been asleep too long. Thus you are now getting the message are you not? So make time during the day, if you do not wish to be up all night. You will not be able to sleep until you have started to seriously fulfil your role. Are you wishing to go to your grave with regrets and unfulfilment?
NO NO NO!? So what is holding you back? Just do it, see how much easier it is to just do it. See how the tension dissolves and you relax and warmth fills from your centre outward. The light warming and brightening.
Make a structure, then let go and release and dissolve into the oneness to find your God-given inspiration to write. Let go and release the truth that resides within. Fear not and give this your undivided attention. Think not about what to write. Just write. You have been given direction so now is time to do it.
[In my mind's eye I see bees settling on pink flowers and a little spider spinning a web]
The bees are buzzing around the beautiful pink flowers, ready to transform the golden pollen into the nectar of honey. Mana is trickling down from the heavens to transform into a beautiful stream of gold.
Honey nectar, so sweet and nourishing
Given birth from the flower unfolding
The world abuzz with the light arising
Sacred sun dawning, beautiful queen
Compassionate heart, a pink blossom flourishing
Glistening dew on a web encouraging
Silk spinning spider diligently working
Sacred soul it is time to be seen
Remember, if you always do what you have always done, you always get what you have always got. It is time to change. Arise and stand tall, be strong and set forth on your new journey and relish the adventure of each step."
Oops how could I ignore such a message? But here I am just over two years later still having struggled with following instructions. But it is never too late, and here I am again.

Quell your mind
Your ego release
Of infinite grace
Allow your soul
To fully express
Through your every cell
It’s infinite success
Know your truth
Let it shine like a star
That guides from within
Yet reaches afar
Your magnificent you
Endowed with gifts
A dream come true
Embody it now
It’s never too late
To unlock the door
For a divine update

This week in meditation I asked for guidance in my next steps and what I need to move forward. The message I received is for all of us and a reminder of the reassuring simplicity of the answers our questions.
"Be calm and centred. Be alert to the guidance you are given and be diligent in following what you are given or shown.
Remember to remain fully present in each moment. You are learning a new way of being and doing. You are here to shine light on the pathway for yourself and others.
[I am shown an image of holding and shining a lantern in the darkness]
“At times it might seem like you are lighting the pathway in the darkness. And as you shine the lantern in the darkness, shadows appear and can loom up, sometimes disproportionately. But the shadows are not real, you can safely move forward. The pathway is still there, your destination is there, even if you can’t see it.
You don’t need to focus on the shadows, you can focus on the pockets of light, the fairy campfires. You know that what you focus on becomes bigger and bigger.
See how magnetised the virus has become because it has gained the full lens of humanity’s attention. And although it is microscopic and unseen, it has the power to cause harm and to create waves of fear across your world. This is not inherent in the virus itself. It is inherent in humanity’s misunderstanding of its own power of focus and belief.
So trust in the glimmers in the darkness, amongst the shadows, for there are treasures there awaiting your focus so they can shine and take up the full lens in your life.
[I am shown how the shadows grow and shrink in accordance to how the lantern is held]
See how the shadows grow and shrink according to how you focus your light. You truly are in control of your own reality.
So detach yourself from the shadows and hold your lantern according to your own truth and move it so the shadows shrink and the treasures expand. Remember, the shadows loom and shrink by moving your light, not by extinguishing your light.
When your light goes out, there is only darkness and you only see the light of others, so you are led to believe you are nothing in comparison.
You only need reignite your own flame and place it so that the shadows fall away and all is illuminated.
Practice, simply practice this way of being and shining your light.”

You to find your way home
Your heart fluttering
Your words spluttering
Whilst heavenly whispers
Are waiting to soothe
Your Soul yearning
For you to go within
To the peace of your heart
Your palms sweating
The freedom of who
Your are here to express
True light beholding
In all its unlimitedness
Thanks to pixabay for the photo
Be at one with all that is
Regardless of what you believe it is
Unite with that which resonates with you
And always to your own heart be true
Connect with the infinite oneness within
Forgive yourself for what others call sin
Forgive them too, for that is the path
That leads you daily away from wrath
A path of happiness, a path of bliss
A path that you surely don’t want to miss
A path within, a path without
That makes you want with joy to shout
I am what I am and I love what I love
The infinite wisdom from below and above
I daily tune in, for why would I miss
My heart and soul bathed in eternal bliss.

The other day I was sitting out in nature enjoying the beautiful sunshine of early spring when a very yang, sun-kissed being came to commune with me. This is what they said:
“Be the great I am. Be awesome. Be more than, because you are, you are.
I am awesome, I am more than, I am awesome. I am more than.
I am the great I am because light penetrates every cell of my body when I am open to receive.
I feel the full magnificence of this light and I can transmit this light out into the universes and beyond, connecting with the great I am, because I am, I am, I am.
Feel the light. Be the light. Feel the light. Be the light.
The light is without gender. It is simply a bringing together of yin and yang and is seen according to what you are attracting. You attract the elements of who you are and thus you see the great I Am accordingly; because the great I Am is simply vibration, as all of this universe and the multiverses are vibration.
All is yin and yang. All is. All is all and all is nothing. All is all and all is nothing.
So be the great I am. Knowing that what you project out is that which you receive back. So when you perceive according to the structures of all that has been, then you are creating more of what has been.
But you have been implanted with the seed of creation. So you can create anew, when you can see beyond the structures of that which has been before; and that is the true manifestation of heaven on earth. That is the true manifestation of heaven on earth. To be beyond all that has been.
So engage your heart. Engage your light. Engage your curiosity. Engage your inner child and play the game of let’s pretend. This is why why you go through this phase in your up-bringing, the phase of let’s pretend; because this is the key to being who you truly are and to creating what you truly desire. So engage in let’s pretend.
Engage in let’s pretend so you can be beyond all that has been. You can see beyond the structures of what has come before; and you can manifest that which is in your heart, that which you truly desire. That which comes from deep within the inner core of your being. That is the true reflection of the great I am. Because it is. It simply is.
It is a clean slate. It is expansiveness. It is more than. It is nothing less than. It is.
It is bright and shiny. It is dark and deep. It is all that is. And it is there to be played with. To make manifest that which is of your own creation; that which is of your own creation.
This is the importance of going within. To find the great I am. The great expansiveness of all that is and nothing at the same time. The clean slate, the clean slate from which you can create your heart’s desire.
That which is unstemmed by past belief. That which is without constraint. That which is without preconceived ideas and preconceptions. That which is with all and everything, unlimited; Limitless. Beyond comprehension, but to be comprehended none-the-less.”
The being shared with me a prayer of appreciation of the sun:
“Great sun I welcome thy light into my life. Great sun I am an open receiver of your energy to recharge my batteries and connect that energy to the earth. Through the electric circuitry of my body so that the earth can nourish and be nourished and survive and flourish.”
Then the being gave me further instruction:
“Expand, vibrating out through you so that you can amplify this energy of light and being and limitlessness and endless possibilities. Activating your heart so that you can live within your heart, your activated heart of higher possibilities and expansive everything, and expansiveness of all that is — of manifestation, of fulfilment, of joy, of beauty of love, of peace of harmony of all that is. Of cherishing the past and being open to the endless possibilities of the future. To be without constraint. To love what has been, to forgive all that has been. To know all there is to know and to be all there is to be. This is the space of the great I am, the great I am, your divinity unlimited.”
The being sung to me before concluding:
“May all unfold as in your deepest heart’s desire”.

Recently I've been feeling things unravelling as I've got busy. Practices have been sliding and I've been doing way too much juggling. I've felt at sea, pushed and pulled by every passing wave and current, losing all sense of direction. Every day I've been meaning to come back to centre, but everyday I've been drifting further and further away. Finally, I sat in meditation, my mind initially busy with wondering what to do to get myself back on track.
Of course the answers are always very simple and I am always blown away by the infinite wisdom that comes from within (by the way, this is the wisdom within each and every one of us). As I reviewed the guidance, I realised it was not just for me but was to share, as we all need a course reset from time to time. This is the guidance I received:
"Set aside time each day to connect with me [the infinite within] and your heart’s desire. If you do this you can make headway. Why are you so distracted that you do everything but?
It is time to be clear. You can be clear, you are clear. Connect with the highest intelligence within. Be at one with all and you will be amazed at the magnificence that unfolds. Trust dear heart, trust and all will become manifest.
Clear and become clear. Remove the clutter. Remove the doubt. Do everything to become clear. Set intentions daily, before you do anything else. You are being given much information and you are being guided. Honour this and take heart. Be grateful and speak the words of your truth every day. As many times as you need to, remain clear and focussed upon your intention.
Be clear, dear one, be clear. Do everything to be clear and remain faithful to divine intelligence. Follow a schedule. Go over your writings for there is much to learn and much to practice. Be earnest. Veer not to the right or the left, but remain steadfast, clear in your intention of allowing your mission to become clear and unfold.
Live your deepest heart’s desire. Stay true to your inner wisdom and unfailingly call upon the holy presence, your higher self, the divine spark within and those who gather to guide and nurture you with infinite wisdom.
Set your schedule and look not to the left or the right, but remain steadfast. Be vigilant for your time is arising. Your time is always in the ever-present now and that time is now. Write every day what is in your heart and what stirs you. Be amazed what emerges from the nothing, from the empty space, from the blank page.
Select words that resonate with you to repeat daily. Speak to yourself in the mirror and stay focussed on the positive, with a steadfast faith in the divine intelligence, knowing that it flows through you and all around you, allowing the life you are choosing to create to be made manifest.
Stay present with time. Be ever present in your awareness of the creativity that flows through time and your divine right to creatively elicit the time you require to do whatever is in your path to complete.
Affirm the divine truth of time, the divine truth of your abundance and the truth of your faith.

Time passes by without much thought
Galloping away while we do what we ought
Speeding up as we feel the pressures
Of unwanted commitments and worldly stressors
Stop. Set the intention for all to unfold
In the perfect time space; divine timing behold
Time expands as we trust the process
And in the magic of the moment take time to bless
All that we have right here, right now
As for the rest, simply surrender and allow

I have always had many, many interests and I am always starting and getting excited about new things to learn. The problem with this, however, is that I would be easily distracted and I would find my energy diffused. I would sometimes feel like I was "Jack" of many trades but master of none.
Earlier this year I had been deciding that I needed to be less distracted. I wanted to become clearer about my purpose and direction. At this time, a Chinese warrior in metal armour, appeared in my mediation, who told me he was here to teach me ‘discipline’.
As he spoke he demonstrated his moves, very slowly, crouching down, stretching out his legs and arms in various poses of his martial arts. He paid close attention to his sword.😀🥳.
He said, “I am here to give you the power of discipline. I want you to choose and pare down. Learn one thing well. Do it over and over, refining your art.
Take action in simplicity, but in taking action, being action is important. Not doing action, being action. Perfect your moves, own your power and the simplicity of choosing and repeating.
You are enough. Have one thing you love, you do not need many loves. This does not enhance you.
Learn your lessons. Be the action. Do what will sustain you, that which you will never tire of.” 🙏💖
In that moment I got it, as I breathed in the crisp clarity of my newly found discipline.

Time is circling around so quickly, only a few days ago we had another full moon. Such a beautiful sight, brimming with the energy of fullness before gradually surrendering and withdrawing into the darkness again. So much is made of the full moon, but this is only one aspect of the mysteries of our dear Luna.
One day in meditation, I was taken in my mind's eye to a temple where I saw a priestess presiding over a rectangular pool in which a lotus blossomed, I bathed and cleansed in the pool before the temple roof opened and Luna shone her light down into my heart. Here is what Luna said to me:
“I am the silver goddess of the night and I entrust to you the treasures of my heart. I shine from the darkness to light the way in the depth of night, when souls are asleep. Now is the time of awakening and I share my light, to light the way for the seekers of truth.
I am not always visible in the sky but I never disappear. Much of my work is in the unseen realms, and I never fully reveal my whole self to the Earth at one time.
I move in circles and am intimately connected to you and to the Earth and all the creatures who live with you there. I am also a beacon of light out to the galaxies. My love is deep and intimate,
I am not always seen, but I am always here and I yearn for love and connection. Behold the gilded nights of my shining and reach out to me as I reach out to you.
My powers are magical, deep and dark, and I light the way for those coming from darkness. I transmute and transform the souls that emerge from the night, lighting their way to the sun. Crystal clear in the dark of night, magical and transformational, I circle your earth cleansing and purifying with my magnetic attraction to the element of water.
The purification in the waters of the pool takes place under the magnetic pull of my silvery light, to light your way from the darkness. The lotus has blossomed accordingly, her beautiful petals unfolding with the scent of heaven.
You are a priestess of the highest order and you are purified to transmit with me the silver light of hope in the darkness. I have joined with you and we shine as one, transmitting the purity of our hearts in the darkness.” Thank you dear Luna.

In my meditation yesterday, out in nature on our property, the photo of me as a baby sitting on the grass came to me (see bottom right), which is why I posted it in our Snowdrop Facebook group yesterday.
I was asked to see the light of my truth shining in that picture. I was told that this is the truth of authenticity and that this is the light we are born to send out to the world. It is the light that shines within, that we are all yearning to rediscover, so that we may shine this light out to the world.
Then Tui settled nearby to sing to me. I was told: “Tui has come today to rejoice in you taking this time out to go within. To sing the song of his truth in reflection of you singing the song of your own truth. Such joy he sings with, such beautiful joy. Take your song out to the world, for it is the song of truth and joy. It is the song of the light which shines within, that we are all born with. You are each born to shine that light out to the world, with our own uniqueness.
Shine your light, without fear. As Tui shows himself, he shows the bright ball of white light at his throat, the sign that he sings from his throat the truth of the light from his soul.”
Then a pair of ducks took flight and flew directly over me, so purposefully it was as if I could feel the breath of the sweeping of their wings. Their call as they took flight was deep and resonant and I could feel it in every cell of my body. Then I was told:
“It’s not about getting your ducks in a row, it is about taking flight. The ducks are showing you it is time to sing with a voice that is strong and clear and to take flight. No more waiting. It is time to take flight.
Getting your ducks in a row is a human construct and outmoded. This does not take place in nature.
In nature, the mother duck sets out and the other ducks fall in place behind, to follow in her slipstream.
You are the mother duck setting out to take flight, to sing with a voice that is clear and loud, resonant from the deep depths of the light within.
Now is time to take flight. Now is time to take flight.
In the universe all falls into place when you align with your own truth, when you align with the truth and principles of the universe. The duck is calling in affirmation of all that has been said.”
Then a poem unfolded:
Majestic ducks taking flight over me
Singing your song so resonantly
No more waiting, getting ducks in a row
It is time to take flight and let everything go.
Beautiful ducks, such depths to your call
Reminding me it is time to no longer stall
But rather take flight, clearly and boldly
In full clear sight, for all to behold me
Singing the depths of my truth from my heart
Calling all to join me in this beautiful art.
Then I felt humbled and filled with gratitude and realised life really is truly abundant and that we have everything we need all around us, if only we sit, observe and listen. The ducks flew round and round so I tried to capture them on my phone which I've posted in the little video below:

The practice of connecting to the Earth and nature is beautiful in so many ways and this connection is very important for us to feel complete as individuals and also as a community. When we connect to the Earth we feel a warmth in our inner core that is a vital part of our internal guidance system for steering us to live according to our true purpose. This is what the Earth shared with me:
“Thank you for remembering that I am here to heal and guide you. You remembered my healing power from when you were sick [on the retreat, which I revealed in one of my first live videos in our private Facebook group Snowdrop], and you came to me and I helped you back onto the path you associate with recovery. You could smell again. And all you did was connect to the me, to the Earth.
When you connect to me you feel the warmth in your belly. This is the same warmth and strength that the great bear was showing you [see post dated 21/07/2020]. This is the bear’s strength and it is my strength. It is the same.
Come back to this warmth as you go about your daily life. This warmth means you are connected and everything is flowing as is meant to be.
Notice when the warmth has gone and you will know that it is time to reconnect and readjust your course.
The bear has the art of maintaining the connection. The warmth has become part of who he is and it will become part of who you are too.
Listen to me and maintain the connection for I have much to teach you about your true purpose on this planet.
When you connect with me you are complete, your belly is warm and you want for nothing. Everything flows and you are clear in your purpose. I am here to guide you.
Teach others and harmony will return. The connection brings peace, absolute peace. Your soul purpose is to unite with me. It is your home-coming and all becomes clear.”

As I settled into meditation, a wolf came towards me down a soft pine forest path, padding along a cushion of old pine needles. He seemed to be asking me to come with him.
He showed me his cubs. He showed me his capacity to be soft and strong all at the same time; to nurture and love and protect.
He reminded me of my role and stirred the memory of a locket I had as a child, in which I wrote in tiny, tiny writing a vow that I would create a bubble of protection for nature and wild life. This locket was lost or discarded many, many years ago; and the tiny writing dismissed by me as the fanciful play of a child.
Now the wolf is calling, reminding me of my calling. Such a beautiful creature, so soft, so strong, so powerful, so gentle…. Together the wolf and I send his energy out to the world, our love and strength, from the creative space in my heart. The message from the wolf was simple:
“You are the gentle wolf, the protector and keeper of the earth. I am calling to remind you of your calling. Don't you now feel such peace? Are you not at home? Welcome home and thank you for answering my call.”
I have sat on this message since 15 March 2018. Unsure of my self, unsure how I could achieve this role. Aware of my tendency to procrastinate. Afraid of the potential power of my inner wolf and the calling. Humbled by even the suggestion that I would be able to achieve anything that to me seems so vast.
At the moment, however, I am being nudged to be courageous, so I am publishing it. I am hoping that as I become brave, it will nudge others to also become brave to be or do whatever it is that they are here to be or do. I have also been taught that big things come from little beginnings, and I humbly await the unfolding.
Thank you beautiful Snowdrop friends for all your love, support and encouragement.
As we connect to the Earth and nature, each in our own beautiful way, whether in big or small ways, we are spreading the remembering of the interconnectedness that joins us all to each other, as well as to our dear Earth and the natural world around us. And in this remembering and connecting, shifts start to occur, no matter how subtle. The most important thing is that we start close to home with what is doable and meaningful for us.
This week as you take time out to connect to our dear Earth and to go within, connect to your calling. What is it that you have been ignoring or neglecting that would really bring you true fulfilment and enrich the lives of the souls that you were born to touch?

As my 28 Day Earth Connecting "Challenge" drew to an end yesterday, I shared that this was not the end of the practice for me. I feel so much more flow and gratitude in my life since I committed to connecting to the Earth every day, Connecting to the Earth is now totally part of my life, How can you abandon such a dear, constant friend?
Here is the message from the Earth that I shared in my Day 28 live video in our private Snowdrop group yesterday, to remind us of our special connection to the Earth and her gratitude that we are making the effort to reconnect with her. This is what she said:
"Thank you so much for uniting with me. I want to express my deepest gratitude for the fact that you are relentlessly and tirelessly uniting with me every day.
Just this simple fact is so important for the whole planet and all the creatures who live here. Simply pass on this message to all your fellow humans, that the most important thing they can do is to connect to the natural world, to connect to nature, to connect to the planet, to connect to me.
This connection is what you are here for, it is what the human race is here for, to connect. You are part of me, You are my dear children. You are truly the children of the earth.
Thank you so much for awakening to this and connecting to me. You are starting to see and experience, feel and know the truth of that connection.
I just am. I am at one with all that is and I ask for nothing more than to connect, so that I can be the biggest and truest expression of who I am. And as you unite with that, then you become the truest expression of who you are. Then as you do that, then everything is elevated around us, the sun rises and shines brightly, as the sun is shining now; so brightly over the whole world, such beautiful brightness. For we have light in our soul and we unite with that light in togetherness and acceptance of who we truly are.
When everything is in harmony all the elements unite together, everything is in balance. It is a beautiful juggling. We all work together to maintain our balance.
The truths are really very simple, but the feeling and depth with which you experience them are very profound.
As you experience the truest expression of who you truly are, in relation to all that is, and the planet you live on, then you experience both the simplicity and the profundity of your true nature.
Keep connecting and growing and developing, because as you grow and develop in that connection, so I grow and develop. As I grow and develop, so you grow and develop.
As you connect to the earth you awaken the depth of knowledge of your true selves that has been separated and hidden for so long.
So many distracted, separated people living on my surface who are lost and need to feel the connection again. They need to stop the distraction so they can connect again to their life source.
Softly, softly, gently, gently, little by little, step by step, as you change, so everything changes. Sometimes the changes happen so slowly you don't even notice they are happening. But even just one person who wakes up and takes glory in the new day, maybe they have never done this before, this is a new awakening.
I rejoice as you take your steps and find your way, because that is what you are here for."

One day a great bear came forward when I was deep in meditation with all his magnificence. So much power and majesty, so powerful and fierce and yet so gentle and loving. This is what he told me:
“I simply am. I am powerful and my size is big.
I have the power to eliminate whatever comes in my path. But my intention is not destruction.
I am a powerful force of nature. If you feel inside my heart, you feel nothing but warmth, acceptance, and harmony. I am at peace. I love the natural world around me.
My body is strong and my claws are sharp. My power is unimaginable. I have the power of destruction, but in my heart is love and acceptance. This is the seat of my true power.
I am powerful because I exist amidst the powerful forces of nature. I am sure of myself and I am at one with the forest, with the stars and with the rivers and stones.
When left to my own world, I am calm and relaxed, all is good and the world is at peace. My power is not then destructive but the power of standing solid in who I am, powerful beyond all measure and in harmony.
Connect to me and I am happy to share my power. Feel where this power sits, in your belly. This is being at home. This is being at one with everything.
When you need courage to move forward or carry on, I am here to share the power of my core, the warm strength of acceptance and love that is at my core.
I am connected to the stars, you can see the great bear out in the universe and I am here to help carry your messages out into the universes beyond our own.
Connect to my core and I will bellow out to my brothers and sisters in other realms and we will be one, working with all our power and strength to find our way back to each other.
I give you my strength and my protection as we are now united as one.”

O scarlet ladybird
Your coat so shiny and bright
You lift up my heart
You are such a beautiful sight
Revealing to me
Your red, black-spotted wings
Of my childhood wonderings
Where is your home?
Are your kids really on fire?
Now I know the truth
You are simply here to inspire
The fire is in my soul
My true home is in my heart
You bring me such joy
My beautiful red counterpart
In your sphere of power
You are always grounded
As you crawl along your bower
Black spots upon your wings
As part of your beauty
From whence your true power springs
So bright and red
Bringer of so much joy
You inspire in me
Love that nothing can destroy.

Wow, I am getting a queue of messages to come through. Have been so busy, my meditations have become shorter until they dissolved into being negligible! Everyday I have had the thought to stop and sit down, to take five... But... Anyway this morning I drew an angel card. Guess what it was? "Meditation". So I dutifully sat, and what a joy!
Ladybird came to visit in my mind's eye, Beautiful, rounded, powerful, peaceful, bringer of joy. Bringing us home, home to our sphere of power. Our inner child. So bright and red. Bringer of so much joy. This was her beautiful message:
“Engage your inner child and create fantasy with love and light. Find freedom in your joy and power, but also in the dark spots that have visited you in this life.
What brings you home? What roots you in your power? When you take flight, is it grounded in your truth? Are you harnessing all that you are?
I am red and shiny, but black spots are also part of my nature. I embrace them as an integral part of me. They are part of the wings that help me soar. That help me to find my way.
They are home to the sphere of my power. And in embracing both the black spots and the scarlet vibrancy of who I am, I grow into even greater beauty.”
And then a poem was gifted that I will share in a separate post. Enjoy embracing all parts of yourselves and flying home to the power of your true beauty.

Be true to yourself
Unite with the one
Core of your being
Warmth in your belly
Your central home
Where there is no doubt
To your inner core
The warmth and love
You can’t ignore
Your inner strength
"I am who I am"
You shout and shout

When I started really consciously connecting to the earth, an eagle came to me in meditation and then Native American’s gathered and danced to the beat of the Earth, so grateful that such a strong connection was being transmitted from a distant land. One of the Native American’s stepped forward and spoke to me with a humbling message that moved me deeply. He told me:
“I am Red Eagle. Today I was called because the eagle soared and the totem danced in rhythm to the beat of the Earth. We are so grateful that the beat of the Earth is being heard by those who have been deaf to her calls for so long.
Our hearts have cried and bled with sadness at the wedge that has been driven between our dear Mother and those who make their homes on her surface. She has so much beauty and healing and loving to offer to those who are open to hear her.
We are humbled to unite with you to spread the web of awakening to the hearts of those who are starting to hear, see and feel that they have been cut off from something that is of insurmountable importance.
The Earth has always been very dear to our people. We revere her and bow down in humility before her greatness. We ask her permission before we do anything. Not because this is a ritual, not because we are fixated on some rules, but because she is our Mother, she has given us life.
She nurtures and sustains us. We would not be here, if were not for her.
We own nothing, everything is hers and we are guardians and custodians of everything that she shares with us.
Everything in our beautiful world is balanced in perfect harmony, and we all have our unique roles to play. What have you got that has not been bestowed on you by our great Mother?
Who are you but ants on the surface of this beautiful planet, here fleetingly?
Our divine Father has bestowed on us the gift of creation. But to truely understand this gift, is to realise that this gift has been bestowed to co-create with the Father and the Mother with the utmost humility for their greatness.
Instead we see heads swelling with pride at being better than everything, every body and even better than the Mother and Divine father too. If you are so great, why are you destroying everything and your selves. What is so great about that?
We too have been led into destructive ways. Many of our people now are centred in the material world that is cut off from their Divine Source and Earth Mother. But we have hope that realisation is stirring in their hearts and your hearts; understanding of the true nature of the universe and our place in it.
Our dancing represents the movement and shifting of how things are into a new dimension, and new time and vibration.
Seeds are being sewn from which we see great things arising. The Earth’s beating is being heard again, because our Mother is rejoicing that she is being touched and felt when she has been ignored for so long.
The movement has started and however it manifests, it is taking shape in a movement forward to a new world of interconnected hearts. Not just human hearts, but the hearts of everything, all creatures, all living things — and all things are living — in this world and beyond.
The ancestors are rejoicing and dancing too. They accept what has happened in the past; the bloodshed is a distant memory that has blossomed into a new understanding.
We have hope and we are uniting with you, and beat our drums and dance the song of the Earth, to ground your endeavours to the very core of our beautiful planet whilst reaching out to the sacred stars.”

I hope that this photo is appropriate and does not offend any native cultures in anyway. Red Eagle gave his approval for me to use this photo as a visual representation to accompany this message, even though this man does not look like Red Eagle.
Today I would like to share with you, an experience I had in meditation, that was more unusual, (even than communicating with mosquitos!) so I ask you to engage your imaginations (see my last post) as the message was one that really changed my relationship to our dear Earth.
I have been prompted to share, as I keep remembering this experience as my appreciation for the Earth amplifies with each daily connection in my 28 day Earth connecting commitment.
One day I was visited by a large black being whilst I was in meditation.
He felt huge, very tall, and didn't seem human. He was sitting on a throne in front of a pyramid-like structure — more of a South American looking pyramid than an Egyptian one.
This being talked to me about appreciation for the Earth and the origins of why we pray as we do. He showed me how his fellow beings came to our beautiful planet, and were attracted and so thrilled by the beauty of Earth.
He told me how it was important for them to connect to the Earth when they arrived because they were so in awe of the beauty of what they perceived to be a living being. So they knelt down and kissed the earth. They did this to offer gratitude, but also to ask humbly for permission to stay on her surface.
He showed me how they did this and how they would do this every time they did anything because they were always working in partnership with the Earth. Kneeling down with their hands down on the Earth, almost prostrating, but in a kneeling position, then raising their arms and hands up to the skies and back down to the prostrated kneeling position again. I was doing this with the being who came through me, and it just felt so ‘right’
He told me: “I am from another dimension and at one time I was manifest in your world, long ago. Some of us live in other realms outside of your planet, but some of us now live in another dimension within your Earth.
Today I was called to show you the connection between what many of you do in what you call prayer and the Earth. You kneel and touch the Earth because the planet you live on is an important connection between you and the divine. You are an important connection between the Earth and the divine.
This is the importance of being grounded when you pray and in all your spiritual endeavours. It is about connection and completing the circuit. It is about uniting and completing the circle to feel, know and experience the full power the energy that created all that is.
Nothing is in separation and nothing is in isolation. Everything is connected, or rather everything was born to be connected. The more you make efforts to connect, the more you will experience the power of the creator.
This message is not about rules and how things must be done. It is an explanation of what has been and why.
It is the connection that is important, the connection and the gratitude and the respect of asking where asking is in the order of things, not specifically how it is done.”
It was after this experience that I started to view the Earth differently. I started seeing her as a vast and plentiful living being that we walk over, build on, drive over, fly over. She gives us so much from the food we eat and the clothes we wear to the cars we drive and the houses we live in. Everything. And I realised that we are so often detached from this realisation and never give this any thought at all. We take it all for granted.
For example, when we travel, we fly from, say Auckland to Sydney or Dubai or London or wherever. It is simply a name, a place, a destination. We don't give a moment's thought to the fact that we have travelled from one part of the Earth and we have simply landed on another part of this beautiful living being we call home. It is truely awesome how vast, varied and giving she is. This is why I try to remember to rearrange how I speak about places and countries, referring to them as "that part of the Earth many of us call..."
