Seeking Colour.

This 2020 Photo Series by Ruby, is an idea that came to mind, as a solution to the show that is this year. A look at everyday moments, hoping to catch that moment of colour. To share it. To speak to each of us. To call up a vibration of kindness. A moment of saturation to rain through your vision. To heal. Despite what our ego would have us believe, we all have things that can heal. These photos titled Seeking Colour, is an effort in helping us to restore.

Colour raises our souls and is a warm welcome home, like the flowers, both literally and figuratively. Photographed on a rainy Sunday afternoon. It’s part of my balance to a lot of other very important images right now. Nigeria, New York, Melbourne and Beirut, to name a few.

In the last couple of weeks, I started to ‘Seek Colour’ as a reminder that the world has a myriad of things that are possible. For me the most beautiful of these is nature, wild. I was able to watch the birds in my neighbourhood, flash with bright primary splashes in the morning and by the afternoon, I wanted to soak my eyes with colour to recover, to remember, to care.

I hope you like the colour.

Navigating Our End of 2020.

With a couple of retrogrades happening within the end of this year, its worth mentioning a couple of points for consideration, to ease your path. Our illumination continues on in regards to social issues, authority and leadership, expression and justice. These impact and influence us all, raising to the top what has not yet been fully addressed. Primal urges called out in our behaviour, ask us to think before acting and speaking, with taking time out for considerations around maturing and evolving.

Fear and isolation may add to what you are positioned to navigate, with power struggles and confrontation in the mix. Our opportunity to keep our path forward towards success is firstly to understand that blocks and challenges are a sign to slow down, even to back off to avoid making major mistakes. Patience and small, slow steps are going to aid reaching goals.

Integrating with the Age of Aquarius energy, brings these aspects into the spotlight; self expression, sexuality, gender, innovation, collective well being and health, logical thought and growth. These apply to personal and professional environments and conduct. In business this includes industries like, technology, finance, communication for example social media platforms as well as psychology, the arts and social services. Personal feelings will be raised in professional environments. Concentrating on maintaining is relevant for project outcomes as well as profits. Including employees and client bases would also be wise in your considerations here.

This is an opportunity to tidy up, mature and resolve recurring issues and energies from past life experiences. As in Feng Shui, what is imperfect is a moment of choice. Our choices find us where we are and offer alternate options, if you can be in the moment, in the space, to respond out of victim or perpetrator mindsets to learn how to safely express Mars energy. Mars relates to anger, rage, negative energy left unchecked. Learning to utilise better expression of these characteristics once navigated can bring relief, more options for outcomes and aids us in feeling safe in vulnerability and risk assessment for balanced actions in the future.

For this I would recommend utilising the words in the image as your touchstone for quiet contemplation, aiding you in continuing towards yours and our success.

Safe passage.

Peaceful Prosperity

Our minds and words are part of our peace and prosperity, connected with health being our first wealth. When we feel challenged, overwhelmed or fearful it is wise to address our mindset, to continue towards our goals of peaceful prosperity being integrated with our health.

Our thoughts are what become. Our words carry vibration. Centred in personal agency and power, it is inevitable that what we think and say impacts, ourselves and those around us. Inciting or inspiring?

As we step forward into a time and space of serving for greater cause, peace and prosperity are formed and sustained through thoughts and words. Education grows to include self knowledge, including the shadow self, as well as this aspect of our societies and systems. As illumination continues, our understanding and education around where and how we have lived, comes to the surface.

In navigating through what has been in shadow, now coming into light, it is wise to ground, stabilise as best as able and consider. What are you creating? How are you engaging? What and who, do these serve?

Feelings of uncertainty, ask us to find a source of inner strength, compassion and discernment, in turn supporting immunity, right place right time, being articulate and a sense of fulfilled service for greater cause. Beginning with filling ourselves and expanding in expression, to include others.

888 Tips for settling self.

1. Clean, your space, person, pets. Tidying externally, cleans out negative thoughts and allows space for clarity.

2. Drink water. More, more, more. Water the garden bare foot.

3. Meditation, keep it simple. This can look like a gentle walk at sunset, yoga, a cup of tea in a quiet space. If you have young children, sleep when they sleep.

4. Read. Grow your perspective. This does not have to be work orientated materials. Do you read for pleasure?

5. Step out of routine. Where your able to without dismantling the home / work balance. Repetitive routines slow our thinking and can distance us from our emotional base.

Foremost be kind. Keep it simple and uncomplicated if the above is a little to much for where you are right now. Be kind. Start with yourself and as you overflow, you can discern who to share with.

Safe passage.

#lovewhereulive

When your reading the 888 Meditation Moment above, I would ask for you to consider each ‘in’ from a point of view you would normally not. Ask yourself to relax and stretch your conscious-ness. Small can also be read as light. However if your practise includes speaking it out loud, use the word small. Have a clear line of sight on the word light and what that means to you.

Loving where your living, transverses the micro to the macro for and around us. It can be your favourite tea cup, to hiking in nature, to engaging in politics. When we engage in calm, our scope can expand from breath control to responding over reacting with a person, place or thing trying to tempt us into triggering a familiar event.

What if you didn’t?

In awareness, loving where we live is about how we resonate. Where do we resonate? How do we foster a healthy step forward into better resonance? Why is this relevant? It offers clemency. A moment to breath, to think, to feel, to consider and to reply. Awareness is an opportunity to be the you that loves where you live.

In love. In kind. In harmony. In sync. In.

Your balanced feelings will serve you and those around you to love where we live. Enjoy your 888 Meditation Moment.

Safe Passage.

In our 888 Meditation Moment this week, it is wise to consider, how major shifts can create a new foundation for how we behave and who we like to hang out with, even how we hang out.

This mantra centres within us, for a love base around how we treat ourselves, how we speak to ourselves and by extension to others. Meditation is wonderful for restoring our energies as well as giving us access to our portable safe spaces. This is a valuable tool. It supports all levels of our bodies, our outlook, our embodiment of life. For me its vital to keep my soul acknowledged for me to hear my calling to endeavour to embody life. For this mantra, crystals in hand can include, clear quartz, kyanite, sodalite, turquoise and lapis. This weekend is a good time to ground crystals like hematite, tourmaline, jet, smoky quartz, lepidolite and emerald. If you’re looking to add an essential oil these are good suggestions, considering aspects of new thoughts, courage and being pro active; jasmine, galbanum, cedar wood, chamomile or lemongrass.

Enjoy giving yourself some support, no matter how the week has been. Safe Passage.
