Everything I thought I was going to write in this newsletter went out of the window this morning when I awoke with a song in my head that I had not heard or even thought about for such a long time. It is a song I have always loved and it serves as such a powerful reminder of what is emerging within us and beginning to ripple out into the world. The song that won't go away just yet is The Greatest Love
, by the unquestionably gifted Whitney Houston. It is most appropriate given the deepening of the heart energy that so many are experiencing in between the daily challenges of life.
As I listened to the song, I was reminded of a sequence of events a number of years ago, that took me through a powerful kundalini 'heart opening' and blew my heart chakra wide open. It started with a whopping 'jolt' that was akin to being hit in the chest with a sledge hammer. The force was so great, it physically threw me backwards. I guess sometimes we need a sledgehammer to break through some of the barriers we put up around our hearts without even realising it! I walked round for at least a month with a 'hole' in my chest in which burned a glowing minature sun - I would say it felt as if I had undergone an internal 'supernova'. My body was on fire, sleep was elusive and I subsequently also experienced a full kundalini spinal journey, along with the third eye 'popping' and a number of other quite intriguing occurrences. When I subsequently found Alex Grey's artworks, 'Holy Fire' I was fascinated. To compare his rendition with the reality of the experience left me awed. (He KNOWS! Take a look at his pictures here
It took some time for me to integrate this period in my life and to begin to comprehend the what and why of the process. One of the things that happened frequently over this time, occurred at night while lying in the heat of the 'fire' that burned even more brightly in the twilight hours. I would lie sleepless yet blissed out and held in the embrace of an essence I couldn't define, while a voice from deep within simply repeated over and over, "I love you". The words caressed me internally and spoke into the wounds exposed by a heart broken open, soothing and healing. For the first time I began to deeply know the truth of Love as the force of who we really are. Over time, I comprehended that a heart 'broken open' creates space for more of the Greatest Love, way beyond our human paradigms and experiences. It is a heart strengthened by vulnerability, expanded by the piercing diamond light of Higher Consciousness. It is a heart opened with a capacity to hold suffering and pain and to Love it all back into wholeness.
A heart filled with the Greatest Love, is a heart connected to the grand flow of life itself in all of its manifestations. When we fall in Love with ourselves and offer that love into all of our wounds, we find the courage to accept all of ourselves and trust more fully in the process of life. We become more able to BE in service to the All and become a beacon to others. It is a Higher Love, the love of the Sacred, a love for what it means to be fully human on this planet.
Something interesting is happening at the moment as increasing numbers of people begin to focus more on peace. With International Peace Day on 21st, followed by the Autumn Equinox on 22nd, the energy surges are recalibrating the 'grids' with the power from the heart of creation, the Love of the Divine Cosmic Parents.
Hearts are expanding again. Many are finding that their Higher Heart is being breeched, broken open. The great numbers of people who have experienced incredible loss and challenge this year, have had their hearts opened through the pain - and these open hearts are ready to connect with the waves and surges of cosmic energy flowing into the grids. It is quite fascinating to step back and witness energetically what is happening.
Hearts that are open to the Greater Love can use it to heal. They can embrace and broadcast Peace, through words, actions and deeds simply because they are more whole and at peace within themselves.
The special energies of this Equinox are a doorway into our 'home' within. Into Greater Love and Peace. Let the barriers around your heart dissolve (or break down - whichever worls for you!), and I hope you will bring your heart and soul to join us for the Diamond Equinox event : Igniting the Diamond Grid of Peace
As one early registrant wrote "I'm very much looking forward to anchoring this in with the Diamond energies and all of us. It feels the most like home"
Says it all really...
Take a deep breath, rest into your Diamond heart and know that you ARE Love.
In loving service
