The Rise of Appreciation

Roll up roll up a new wave has arrived! Have you noticed a shift in energy over the past week? vesica piscis flower of life

Have you noticed:

  • A greater appreciation for certain people and events?
  • A recognition of gifts both past and present that have come to you?
  • A calmer state of being descending on all your activities?

For those that have made changes and grown recently even calmer times are arising. With it I cannot help but be reminded of people, place, things and experiences that I am continuously feeling more appreciation for. Good people especially. Sometimes you might think something is just ok until you experience something worse and are like that that first thing was actually much better than I gave it credit for!

Make a list of things you appreciate and give one or two or even more a lot of focus and see what happens.

More harmony baby is here :) 

For those who haven't made changes but may be feeling called to making some, this is a reminder that after a while it does get easier! Listen within and look around you. Stay out of the incessant thinking head (this is not healthy). It is by being present and breathing conscisouly that answers will come and things/clues/guidance stand out for you.

What a time of healing I am in

What’s different this time is that there is no real sadness or regret, though there is pain. Unresolved, it arises. I didn’t even realise it existed but it appears, pain and tears and moves right through. Released, a bird freed flying the coup –happy & feeling love for the whole universe and I feel even better than before.  Yes the difference this time is that I am willing, very willing to be whatever I am, whatever it is. I’m ok with life, I accept it graciously. Is that what comes with age? Experience? Or just ‘pfff’ a moment that instantaneously arises of its own accord? There is a flow and I will not take it personally. I happily allow and observe.

There is a force of Good. It is with us and I can feel it, a gentle breeze against my cheek, at all times that I remember her; she is here, loving us into voluntary relaxation, release, submission as a beautiful unfoldment of our true nature emerges. All furnaces have been lit by this flame. What gift is this? Indeed what a time of healing and renewal we are in. 

'This being human is a guest house. every morning a new arrival; a joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and attend them all. Even if they're a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of it's furniture, still, treat each guest honorably. He may be clearing you out for some new delight. The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing and invite them in. 

Be grateful for whoever comes because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.'

Well it's been a great month so far and looks like it will continue to unfold this way. Of course it has it's more tender moments too Orla conscious concert:)

So what's been happening? 

Well there have been a number of alchohol free events on that I've been fortunate enough to go to. After a years break, there was a great Flux event at the RDS, and i'm told there will be more events by flux soon to follow. Check it out on facebook and through Joe Quinn. 

The Irish Conscious Concert, a yearly event, took place in March, lwhich brought fantastic beings from around Ireland and the world together for a fantastic evening of 'awakening consciousness through sacred entertainment.' The beautiful Sudha graced us with sanskrit chants and music - see the you-tube clip below for a taster. This was followed by a talk by Aaravindha Himadra, who has connections with and journeyed to the Valley of the Immortals in the Himalayas, where many agreed, disagreed and basically made up their own minds! This was followed by Entheogenic and a great dance which closed the night.

The music of Entheogenic is set the the heart frequency of 432, listening to music at this frequency to said to open the heart and help one feel more loving and connected to the all that is. If you'd like to try this out for yourself, Xavier is also offering music played at this frequency at the Rialto F2 hall every Thursday evening. This is a great place to go dance and in the same location the Dublin dance co-op offer a Monday music wave, 100 minutes of a music wave based upon the five rhythms of Gabrielle Roth. Give it a go- if dancing is your thing or you are in any way curious. These are all drug free alcohol free gatherings, so bring your water or apple juice~!

In adddition to these Monday and Thursday night regular dances, The Funky Seomra is still holding great monthly alcohol free Saturday night discos from Film Base in Temple Bar. Anyone can go, and many just turn up on their own as it's a great way to meet other interesting people who like to dance!

Darren Maguire also held an alcohol free rave party at the same location a few weeks ago, check out Tribal Dance, playing old skool dance music from the 90's combined with raw food snacks and smoothies- a winning combo indeed :)

As you can see there are lots of events happening, and these events are for have having a great time but also serve as a great way for us to connect together.

Healing wise, over the coming month there is a healing day on this Friday the 8th of May and again on Friday the 22nd of May. Appointments are also available on other days so do get in touch if you are interested.

There is also a soul's goal introduction workshop taking place on Saturday the 23rd of May. All are welcome to attend. Bring a friend and have some fun. We will look at what excites us, at how we feel about ourselves and how we can shape this to help us live a life that we are happy with and  feel delight with. We will share with you a technique that you can implement straight away for more soul aligned living and for experiencing days with greater satisfaction and peacefulness. It will be followed up with a 2 day workshop in June.

This Saturday, the 9th of May there is a 24 kirtan happening in Birmingham where people from around the UK and Ireland will gather with some world leading Hare Krishna kirtan leaders including the dear Madhava, for a glorious 24 hour non stop chanting and dancing session! I am very happy to be attending, after which I will travel to London to visit my super special sister, Jacinta. I will also make some time for work  and am delighted to be offering healing energy and soul awakening sessions. The trip will then bring me to Brighton to connect with a dear soul sister where we will do some work and have some play before I return to London for some quality time before returning to Dublin, just in time I hope for the Monday co-op dance wave! 

At this time of great change it is so important that we make time to connect with others who are travelling the road of the conscious journey. To connect and have fun is important work - seriously! Take it easy on yourself. Rest well and have fun. There is a new wave of energy coming for us all. Be ready and smiling! With love, Haribol! Orla

Today is the 8th of the 8th 2014

Themes:

Unity: working with others for a common objective

Love: Be and do what you love

Change is happening again!

Can you feel it?

Continuous waves of energy are moving through the Earth.

There is an 8 week powerful wave moving through us at present. In the next two months expect to experience a shift in life. It is wiping away the old ways of being and reintroducing a fresh perspective in each being. If something changes unexpectedly, go with it!

Individual stories, wants and needs of the ego are dissolving or being wiped out depending how compliant one is with this energy; the more you resist love: self-love, love for others and love for life (all the same thing), the more of a challenge and shock the change may appear.

The more open one is to embracing love, and that must be for one self as much as for someone else as much as for life itself (as stated above, it is all the same thing and to separate it in parts is an illusion of the mind – if you feel you can love someone but not yourself, this is a block and you must work on it to have a free flow of energy- the ego does two noticeable unhealthy things, makes people think they are better than others and thus separates them from being one with others, and makes people feel worse than others and thus creates the illusion of separation from others! Both are illusions of the mind, and fear based old paradigm behaviour. Old fashioned I call it. Breathing love for all parts of life will help rebalance this).

Basically there is just love, embrace it, take care of yourself as you would someone you love, breathe into life and out of life- the more you open to loving life (the air), the more wonderful life is.

Working with others in unity is the way forward, there are many opportunities arising this way. A time of unity is arising, that is working with others for a common good. 

Enjoy the now! Life gives you opportunities for delight continuously, but you must be in the now to see them.  You are life! Believing you are separate to it is another illusion! That breath that goes in and out of you- that is life! Yes, you are life! “All the power that ever was or will be is here now.”

If you are not feeling that nice or having a low moment, the best and quickest most powerful and easy advice I can give you is to take one minute or however long feels right, to breathe really quick breaths through the nose, from your stomach (by pushing stomach in and out breath gets pulled into and sent out of body), some deep breaths and some shallow, go with your own rhythm.

Every now and then push all the air out of your lungs and on the exhale and on the inhale really pay attention to the feel of the air being drawn in through the nose and then exhaled back into the air which surrounds you.  Do this for a couple of breaths observing the body and how you feel. This can clear the old air in the lungs and refresh the mind, helping one feel clearer and more intune with the now. Or go outside for a walk or runJ

In addition, give the projects that give you a great feeling some energy this month. There is energy to be used, use it well and wisely and dive into what you love. Love painting? Get your paints out. Love the idea of your own business? Get researching and talking, connect with others. Be the wonderful version of you! Everyday focus on that which feels amazing in your life, what already is, offer gratitude whether silent or otherwise. 

There is a shakeup happening, be sure that you make the most of it by feeling well as much as you can and being/doing that which you enjoy, then when the energy settles it will be working with you on what you love, and this will further expand in your life. Like all waves, cycles, enjoyable moments and challenges, it too will pass. This time next year you may just be celebrating some very great moments that were wonderfully influenced by this month and next, by maybe even today :) Go for it! Do it with others! Jump!
