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

March Equinox 2016

March 20th 2016 Equinox! Equinox march 2016

I woke up this morning with a feeling of delight. As someone who loves that feeling, it was and always is especially welcome. A smile on a dial I hoped out of bed. 5 hours sleep must be enough for today because I feel wide awake and alert!

I lit the fire I had prepared with fallen twigs from the surrounding trees the night before. A few hours later just before my run I lay down on my bed for 5 minutes. This is something I love but rarely do! 3 hours later or so I woke up! The trip I’d been planning on making to Dublin among other things no longer possible, but I knew it was fine and needed to happen and so I let go and got on with it. I retired back to the fire where I watched a bit of a movie and then felt massively drawn to go outside to the beach at the lake where I live. The sun was out about an hour before setting and the sky was true blue. A beautiful evening. To my surprise there were two people talking exactly in the place I had felt drawn to. Being a small local community here I knew both of them with one of them even being a guest at my house! Talk about small world!

I joined them and sat down on the dry pebble ground. One headed off and silence arose. Beautiful silence. A photographer who had found this heavenly location further down the lake bank sat also in silenc, all three of us listening to the birds taking in and being part of this vision. I once said to a friend that I didn’t know what to do when faced with something really beautiful, he said to enjoy it is our job and is enough! I am now a great enjoyer of good things and it wonderful.

2016 march equinoxI didn’t touch my phone during the grand show of the sunset so these are from after sunset and earlier in the day too. I’m really glad life can be so beautiful and amaze us time and time again. ‘That is the most beautiful view I’ve ever seen,’ I said more than a few times this week. So glad the divine blows the mind with beauty amid what has been a challenging time for many and a time of change for all.

I too have been growing and moving into a more balanced approach to living- quite fitting for the equinox where we are experiencing equal hours of night and day. Have you been calling out for more balance in your life? Can you see it coming into play?

I’ve been a bit whacked needing a bit more sleep these past few days too. An energetic person who often goes without sleep I am delighted to be able to enjoy some rest. New times are presenting themselves. If you feel the call within, please listen, whether it be to rest or bring more balance into your life for greater harmony and happiness.sunset lake 20 march 2016

I hope this finds you well and blesses the dreams and projects you are soulfully passionate about with extra divine energy. I alsopray that any shadow parts or unpleasant aspects receive the blessings of understanding/ forgiveness/ compassion and acceptance. We are evolving. May we relax into the place where everything is okay and working out for us. This is a powerful year and for many an intense time. This is a reminder to:

  • Rest as you need it.
  • Be conscious of the thoughts, words and actions that move through you. Use a go to mantra such as ‘I am feeling peace’ to direct the rambling mind and reconnect to the heart.
  • Clear your space. Start with one drawer or cabinet, whereever appeals to you the most. Over the next few weeks keep going to include the bedroom, living room, kitchen and beyond inclduing car and garden. Clear one little space at a time for new things are coming and it is time to make space for them.

Wishing you peace, love, clarity and courage, Orla
