Releasing My Heart


Just Passed Zennor is a John Piper painting I purchased when I was in Cornwall a few years ago on a wild elemental November weekend.  I have decided recently to part with it; my lifestyle has changed and it has languished in storage for the past 12 months or so.  And it feels wrong to keep this passion of colour locked away.  I realised that the painting is the window for my heart to access my creativity and to satisfy my yearning to live in wild places.  As I am no longer keeping my creativity in a box and I am choosing to explore and live wherever my heart sings I am free to let it go.  It will be auctioned at The Penzance Auction House (David Lay) in the next few weeks to release funds to invest in stepping into my life!

The Art Of Be-Keeping


It is a busy week
I like that it is a busy week
I get to dive into the minutae of my projects
To walk along the cracks between the disjointed pieces of life’s puzzle
To teeter on the edge of fast appearing crevices
Heart stretched across the yawning divide of chaotic icy waters
Head butting against stubborn realities
Learning to gently herd unruly beasts
Through the bucolic landscape of my soul
Calibrating to the whispering caress of divine breathe
And mastering the art of be-keeping

Ask: Acknowledge, Sense, Know

Matthew 7:7 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
I have been more curious in recent times of the wisdom in the Bible, curious to engage with it and to test it out. Ask and it will be given to you is not only a Biblical refrain it is also a tenant of the Law of Attraction. Now I have been doing my fair share of asking in recent times and I have been furiously burnishing up my heart to receive and the red carpet has been rolled out. I know what it is like to receive gifts that I love, expected or unexpected. I am giddy with excitement but like a child in a hurry for Christmas I cant stand the anxiety of waiting. Unlike a child I have taken to cogitating and it struck me today that I am not sure what it means to ASK.

So I looked up the definition and origin of the word. I think we are all familar with the definition of ask as a request, there is an expectancy to it and it is dependant somehow on an external force to complete that request. Of much more interest to me is that ASK originates from the old English word āscian. After some digging around I discover that āscian means ‘without shadow’. I wasnt expecting that. What does it mean to do something without shadow? Metaphorically I recognise my shadow as that part of me that I dont acknowledge, my dark side, my ego that assumes that I am separate from everyone else, that I am not connected to the ALL, I am not part of divine consciousness. So to do something without shadow is to do it from my heart, from that part of myself that is connected to all things through time and space. I find that part of me when I drop beyond my thoughts and my feelings into my intuitive wisdom. So if what we receive is what our hearts are asking for then it is possible that we are receiving all the time but not recognising it because it doesnt match what that shadow part of ourselves is reaching out for.

I have been struggling financially – I know that although I can and do enjoy the material trappings of wealth the truth is I would really love to master money; to wield it to serve my heart and my hearts purpose whatever that may be. When I look at my reality that is exactly what I have been receiving. As a consequence I am drawn to redefining the word ASK. A little acronym to remind me is Acknowledge, Sense, Know. Acknowledge my shadow, Sense what is in my heart, Know that I am receiving it.

Eavesdropping On The Universe

I listened to Deepak Chopras video on this article attachment this morning and I was captivated by his idea that when you listen to your body you eavesdrop on the Universe. The simplicity of this has unlocked a whole new learning for me.

I know that when I connect imaginatively with my heart I can dive beneath the clamour of my thoughts and feelings and will always find intuitive gold that guides me from where I am to where I truly want to go but somehow I have never seen my body as part and parcel of that communication system. I am not a meditator by nature, I live immersed in all the acton in my head. Deepak’s words compel to check out how the receiving technology that is my body is working. So I stop and I become aware of my body. The image of a silo comes to mind and I am struck by how that coincides with my own body image, plodding, leaden, solid, a bit overweight and clumsy. Not how I want to imagine myself as a light weight, cutting edge, sleek shining satellite dish receiving the wealth of Universal wisdom. I am compelled to dissolve the protective shield of my silo and see my vibrational frequency reaching out to connect with the vibrational frequency of the Universe. The lightness of that is visceral.

What new learnings can you find today?
