Earth Fest! 2016

earth festJust back from a great weekend at the Earth Fest held this past weekend, 22- 24 April on a lovely organic farm in Slane. Designed by the wonderful Enda and Masha this event celebrates Earth Day and is a transofrmational festival where there is no litter, composting, education talks with a focus on good music, heart connection, sustainability and living  in harmony with the Earth. 

I went up with some lovely friends and had the pleasure of meeting great people, openness, warm hearts and hanging out and sleep (warmly thankfully) in nature. On Sunday woke up to dancing bearthe sound of the birds singing and felt my aura relax and expand with each tweet as if the bird song was massaging my energy body! As I walked through the field I heard a voice inside me sing, 'I am happy with myself as I am,' nothing like a bit of self-acceptance! 

Congratulations to Enda and Masha and all involved for creating a great festival and a lovely start to the festivaling of 2016!

Communal food, three stages, great electronic music, live music, performances, bands, John Spillane, kindness, chai (thank you Keshet & co!) and a fair bit of beautiful sunshine and fires created a lovely vibe.

Orla healing outdoors I was able to bring the healing table too and offer some treatments. 

 I had the fortune of giving some friends, Nicola and Rafael, plus the wonderful talented Niall Mac Giolla Rua a lift and hearing his gig on Friday night. 

 Was great also to meet up with festival friends, especially Marcus, Andy and Jim :) 

 Meet new friends, or more like recognise and remember old soul friends.

I even got to sing a song on stage on Friday night with Niall Mac G R! It is good to step outside the comfort zone, hey Niall if you are reading this; am looking forward to next time! I also had the opportunity to sing one of my own songs. Ok it was what it was (!), pretty simple, but it's a start and it is going in the direction of delight, the soul's goal and this is worth celebrating! The next Earth fest Orla and Niallday I got to do some mantra singing to the electronic ambient sounds of Rafael Lima. I'm not going to lie, my sound making into a mic was all a bit dodgy, but hey I know it's only going to get better! Thank you life for these opportunities and beautiful people.

Thank you also to all involved. I loved sitting out doors under the beautiful sky and chatting.

Nicola nad Niall Earth fest I have some pictures, so please check back in a day or so and hopefully i'll have them up on this page!

 Looking forward to many more gatherings, healing sessions and gigs this summer!

 Peace and love, EArth fest orla piano

Gratitude!

 

18th May 2015:

Hare krishna10 days ago I headed off on a mini retreat, a living retreat really. Feeling deeply thankful and grounded right now. Spent the past 10 days in the UK and am so grateful for the fullness of these experiences. Started with a wonderful plane ride from Dublin to a 24 hour kirtan in Brimingham with about 300- 500 people singing, chanting, dancing and meditating. Just amazing, there are no words for the love which surges through in these experiences. At one stage on the Saturday night while dancing and signing, I felt two portals in my brain open and this energy shoot through into other parts of my mind! The mana of ecstatic bliss! In a time when the world needs love and gentleness and we blossom so beautifully in such a true place of love and light, these gatherings whether large or small are priceless and dear to this being. My heart is overflowing with gratitude to those who create these events, and to those I meet along the way, such beloved souls that there is nothing but gratitude, deep love, appreciation and something else I do not have the words to express. So sweet. Thank youto the special people I met and connected with.

Orla LondonThissmile emoticThiThis incredible journey then continued to London where I stayed with my amazing sister whose kindness and generosity is beautifully limitless. Following a day of progress and good work, took the train to Brighton where I spent 4 days and 3 nights catching up with my dear friend Chantelle from New Zealand, while working during the day and chatting and catching up morning and night. Such friendships are the gifts that keep on giving. Complete open conversation and connection with another is such a joyous experience, its not about agreeing with each other, but rather about being clear and open and coming from love regardless of what is being said. Such beautiful experiences and conversations can occur this way.

Back in London I got to catch up with some clients who have evolved so gloriously over the past few years and especially over the past 6 months that I feel like putting them on television so others can gain from their experiences and brilliance! Of course it's not always easy when you are evolving, but having some guidance, practices and awareness really helps! Such grand appreciation dear life.Chantelle nad Orla Brighton

A lovely weekend full of ease, productivity and peace followed with my sister and nephew! What a blessed 10 day experience mama Earth. I feel so very subtly transformed! Thank you for taking such care of I as I journey, and I haven't included so many other things such as gifted special encounters with lovely people and expanding awareness.

This morning I had a dream before I awoke where I was 2 years old. I had similar clarity to now but didn't understand other people or how the world worked. Why weren't people always kind!? Why didn't they tell the truth, why did they 'hurt'!? I recalled and re-experienced an event that occurred at that age that my conscious mind had forgotten. I felt a hurt from that event in the dream that when I awoke I could still feel very subtly in my adult body. Since this morning I've been transforming it into light and love & am feeling very well! I am so grateful for the unexpected gifts of awareness and abundance that continue to unfold. I'm offering this moment to energetically and physically thank and acknowledge life and the wonderful kind souls who helped make this trip something truly special. I will share this joy. Peace and love brothers and sisters, love you, X

Can you locate pain or discomfort anywhere on your body? Can you focus on it with light and love like a magnifying glass focusing sunlight?

Remember to treat others with honesty, integrity and loving kindness, even if they are just two years old. There may be much more going on in people than we often realise :) 

Anything you are thankful for right now? Would love you to write us a note below and share :)
