“The breath of life is all around us. Self-sustaining, the universal tree of life provides a gateway to connect us to the knowledge of self. You are deeply connected to the universe and the world around you. When you respond to the actions and reactions of the earth and its people, you ultimately decide how you will grow and thrive.

The tree of life requires you to look at your breath and to ground yourself in the present moment. Nature does not concern itself with the future. Plants know exactly what they need to do in any given moment. Living in the present will provide you with more time. Your presence is all that is required right now;Ā  you are strong and resilient. Hold your space!

Where are your roots? Plant and keep your feet firmly on the ground now. Any sudden change may cause instability in your personal life. Dig your roots deep in to earth to to create a firm foundation that you can build from. Are you relying too much on the support of others to help you grow? You have the answers within you to determine your direction of growth, but you must be willing to face your inner self and core beliefs. With solid nurturing and time, you will begin to see results.

Family matters are of concern now. Be open to solutions to achieve the outcome you desire. Be careful with decision making. Compromising too much over an issue will leave you feeling powerless. Like a branch on a tree, growth will occur in an area that supports the core structure or it will break and drop in order to maintain the overall strength of the tree itself. You may need to drop a branch or two to solidify your point of view or to reach a resolution. Patience is key.”

Affirmation: “I AM unified through presence and action. My strength is supported with loving roots.”*

As above so below. We are all intricately connected; tethered together by the energy of the Universal One. Yet sometimes we feel disconnected or isolated, way out on the end of the branch, struggling, feeling alone and unsupported. Sometimes it is time to come back to our roots, our presence, our own unique way of being an integral part of community.

When we feel isolated, we must be of service and bring out our gifts to share with others. Fearlessly, shamelessly and with as much creative expression as we can muster. It’s too easy to play the wall flower, the victim, hanging back and waiting for life to happen in order for us to participate. We wait for others to make decisions for us, to offer our lives to us in a way that we desire. But we must realize that it is us who is creating every step of the way. And time is passing, faster than ever before; playing tricks with us, spinning away when we aren’t looking.

We must stay balanced, grounded. Put our hearts and souls into what is really important to us. Try our best to turn away from all that distracts us from our true calling. Put the roots of our energy into what means most and allow ourselves to grow up into our potential.

What is it that you wish to create? Where are you putting your valuable energy?

How can you ground yourself in your passion, feel your roots hold you steady while you reach for the stars?

Namaste

The Norns

The Norns: “While there may be things that are fated, still, our will and energy can alter them. We all receive gifts from the divine at birth, which we can develop or ignore. Focus and energy must be put towards a task if it is to be successful.”

“The thread of of life shimmers i the dawn.
It is woven by what was;
It is entwined with what is:
And plaited with what will be.
Each has their destiny,
But each too, their will and magic.
Nothing is certain.
All is in flow.”

Yggdrasil, the tree of life that holds the nine worlds within it’s limbs and roots, grows from the Well of Wyrd. Wyrd is the flow and living force of destiny, which nourishes the world tree and all life. Seated under the tree, ensuring the flow of Wyrd, are the three maiden Norns -Urdr (What was)Verdandi (What is), and Skuld (What will be).

These deities weave the destiny of each new baby born. They visit each child and bestow upon them their fate, which they carve in the form of runes into Yggdrasil. While it is tempting to look at the Norns as similar to the Fates in the Greek Pantheon, the Norse did not see fate as unalterable, as the Greeks did. Instead, they saw fate as malleable, subject to the will and energy of the individual and the forces of their environment. So while someone could have a destiny carved for them by the Norns, by channeling their own desires and personal energy, they could change it.

If we turn to mythos, we can see this concept at work: One day, a new baby entered the world to a jarl (Danish chief) and his queen. The Norns traveled to them. The Norns wove and weaved, the silk flying around them, and after a small while, told the mother that her son would be a great warrior, who would attain great glory.

Knowing that such men often died early, the woman begged the Norns thus: “Please, great women, my son is bound to have an early death should he be a warrior If this is his only fate, I am both happy and bereft. Whist warriors keep us safe, their families must suffer, and they must lose their lives! can you not grant him another talent? Can you not soften his destiny?”

“Ah”, said Urdr, “what we give cannot be taken back.”

“But”, said Verdandi, “We are not the only influences. We can carve his destiny upon Yggdrasil, but the waters of Wyrd and the magic of the whole can change.”

“So”, said Skuld, “The will, the wave and the whole shapes his destiny too.”

And so the Norns left the woman and traveled back to the tree of life. They carved the new sons’ destiny into its wood, noticing as always that as they did the shape of the fate began to shimmer and move. As always.”*

Destiny is calling, are you listening? Are you ready and willing to accept this mission? Ready to embark upon the next chapter of your life? Destiny is calling but it is up to you to answer this call. Up to you to decide to take action towards creating something new, to grasp the opportunity, to take a chance with your heart. To step fully onto the path of your Soul.

Free will is a wonderful gift. It allows us to choose in each moment what we wish to create; more of the same or something brand new. Free will allows us to take absolute responsibility for our lives; and free will allows us to create by default if we refuse to take the reigns.

It’s all up to you.

Do you get out of your comfort zone or stay where you are? Do you dream a little bigger and put some effort into getting where you need to be? Do you dream a whole lot bigger and have faith that you possess the resources to get you there?

Or do you assume that other forces are in control and you are merely along for the ride, for better or for worse?

All up to you.

Destiny is calling…

Namaste

Tree Of Life: “Fertility, Creativity, Destiny, Magical Blessings

“The magical tree depicted in this image is symbolic of your life’s journey. Having matured and grown strong through the changing seasons and cycles of life, you have now reached a stage of creative abundance. Your roots firmly planted in the fertile soil of your dreams and imagination, you are now ready to fulfill your destiny – a new creative cycle begins; one infused with your love and all the wisdom that you have gained through your life to date. The struggle is over, from now on you will achieve greater results than ever before; and you will do this with grace, poise, and ease.

All your past experiences, all the knowledge you have gained and all your previous work now all come together to serve a higher more heartfelt purpose. This is a period in which you truly are the master of your own destiny; a time where anything you would truly love to achieve or create is possible.

Affirmation

I am the master of my own destiny

All I truly desire, I create

All I create, I create through love

All I create is for the higher good of all

I am truly blessed and grateful for all the abundance in my life”*

Now is the time to have faith in yourself, know that every event in your life has lead you up to where you are now. You are blossoming as you read this. Let go of any fear or doubt. Let go of the past and step fully into the NOW. Your consciousness is raised higher than ever before, yet you have opened to a fragment of what you are truly capable of. You have the chance to joyfully create the life of your dreams by tapping into your own resources.

Seek out those who support you fully, knowing that with Divine guidance, they are being led to you. Don’t let minor obstacles stand in your way, and don’t let anyone take your plant seeds of doubt; if they doubt you, or your path, bless them and move on. Celebrate each milestone, no matter how small it may seem, as the positive high vibrations created by acknowledging your accomplishments will attract more abundance to you.

Write down all your dreams and desires, fold up the paper and carry it with you; place it under your pillow at night. Read it three times a day minimum; upon waking, during your lunch break and last thing before you go to sleep. Don’t share your dreams yet with anyone unless you have their complete unconditional love and feel you can trust them not to sway you. When you find yourself thinking any doubtful thoughts, change them to possibilities by writing them down in a simple, positive affirmation.

You have got this, you are a manifesting machine; and I am so excited for you!

Namaste
