7 Simple Keys for Entering your Inner Temple

The kingdom of heaven lies within.  Yet often when I ask my students if they meditate, a vague uneasiness passes between us before they say, “I tried but it didn’t really work for me.” It is almost as if meditation is relegated to a mysterious and sacred realm from which they are excluded.  And feelings arise, ranging from embarrassment to disempowerment. 

Meditation seems very serious and unattainable.  But it is not.  It is simple and it is your birth right to access the realms of bliss, directly from within.

ImageYes, it is a heroic journey to enter your golden temple within.  There are hurdles, and twists and turns on the path.  But do not be discouraged!  Meditation is for everyone, not just monks sitting on mountaintops.  Oh no… 

Key 1: COMPASSION FOR YOUR FEAR

The problem with the perception of meditation is that we are looking for ‘something’ to happen when actually it is about nothing happening. It is an absence rather than a presence.

Whereas society’s message is to be something, to make something, to do something, to create something, to get out there, to achieve! – meditation’s message is to sit still, to be silent, to witness, to stop all doing and enjoy your inner being.  

It almost feels weird to stop activity and have space.  And if you do manage to finally create space it can be frightening.  Yes, the emptiness of meditation can be frightening.  A kaleidoscope of emotions can arise.  Sometimes the aloneness can be perceived as loneliness.  When you make this space anything suppressed can surface.  So in that gap, what arises?….. Ghosts. 

So the first key is to acknowledge and have compassion for your fear.

When you make friends with your ghosts then you have to negotiate with your mind’s saboteur.  When meditating, the thought may arise, “I am not doing it right because magically something is supposed to happen, I am supposed to feel bliss and nothing is happening.”

This is the beauty of meditation.  You are on the first step!  Hooray, NOTHING is happening.  Is that not a miracle?

Modern life is hyper-stimulated. There is a quantum shift in the amount of communications we are all processing compared to even 25 years ago. The use of mobile phones and the internet keeps us all connected in a way that has been unprecedented.  This external occurrence parallels what is happening on the spiritual inner planes: a massive network of freely available, liberating, enlightening energy which is contributing to a significant global shift in consciousness. 

The divine paradox is breathtaking to behold.  While people are feeling overwhelmed in the frenetic pace of overloaded lives, this has created a desperate need to meditate, to come to a still point, to find their inner silence.  Without the stress and pressure, people would probably ignore meditation as a luxury.  To simply cope with daily life, it is becoming a necessity.  

Each day we are all faced with the choice: ‘to be or not to be’  – on the end of a phone, responding to an email or interacting on Facebook.  At some point you decide, ‘I have to jump off the wheel of manic activity’. 

The universe is miraculous in that it creates so many more opportunities for us to imbibe light and also all these opportunities create the thirst for stillness!  The universe in its great wisdom is so divinely perfect.  Life is forcing us to the point we choose to go within to find our sanity or we descend into chaos.  No fence-sitting here!

And to me this is the crux of the gift of last year’s 2012 phenomenon.  The lines have been drawn.  If you operate from the old, fear-based paradigm you hit walls and are blocked; you experience pain and suffering.  If you let go into the new energies you are rewarded: things become easier, synchronicities abound. You see the miraculous in the ordinary when you operate from within.

I stopped blogging for a year now, because my soul wanted to be still.  My soul wanted to be with nature, and connected to my inner silence.  I didn’t want to add to the email overwhelm I was observing escalating at an unprecedented pace.  I needed to step back.  I needed to be with the silence and respect the energy as it was authentically flowing – or not flowing in this case! 

Having rested I can feel the energy is beginning to start again and existence is suggesting themes for sharing…  so we begin again…

White Lightning Shocks, Fawn Dream Realizations,Khaki Focussed Discipline

This week coming is an opportunity to activate your awareness by welcoming the disturbances in your life as your teachers.  “Life as the teacher” a great truism bandied about.  But how often do we experience it as a truth?  When Lightning strikes and the blow is delivered, how easy is it to embrace and see it as an evolutionary opportunity?

This is when the Fawn Colour Ray comes to the rescue.  In the dream time, in our forays into multiple dimensions when we sleep, we can find the answers and healing to issues that arise in daily life. Before you set off to dream, state your intention as if you were making a shamanic journey: “I intend to meet my teachers in my dream state to explore the issue coming up today to learn and integrate the teaching and to remember the teaching before I awake.”

When you arise, have the Khaki discipline to jot down your dreams.  And then later review your notes and journey further if need be. Ask for that dream each night until you get it and remember it.

I had the great pleasure in a dream the other morning where I was in some dimension of old Tibet or monks in the Himalayas, droning and chanting with them.  I remember past lives there.  The peace and serenity of the sonorous chants wove a state of deep relaxation and grace into my very being.

Upon arising in this reality, I heard someone in my neighbourhood was working with a chainsaw. I love the ways the worlds overlap, when chainsaws become chanting and chanting melds into the drone of chainsaws. I was very tickled and considered my practise of transfiguring with divine light is obviously having a good impact.

I met with the Shamanic Practitioner Apprentices a few weeks ago and we covered the component of Extraction and Healing with Spiritual Light. Everyone was buzzing after the 5 days and the Light was overflowing abundantly. I reviewed Healing with Spiritual Light in the Tuesday Rainbow Circle here in Lyme and we again had a brilliant time and everyone was vibrating with ecstatic juice.  Yes the ecstatic present!

People loved the fact that by merging with their own Divinity they could offer healing without seeming to do anything, but rather just sink deeply into “Being”. Moving away from the Newtonian model and into the quantum field, we practiced raising our energy and delighting in our own divine juice.  When we merged with our truest potential, we generated the resonance with the limitless quantum field of love light and healing – where everything comes into harmony spontaneously.  It felt good and it was fun.

Adrian Beckingham, the man from story mountain, who has visited indigenous peoples around the world and learned stories from them, came to the circle. He shares some of those stories in his book called “Stories that crafted the Earth” which you can find out about here: http://www.themanfromstorymountain.org.uk

So all is moving along beautifully and in a few day’s time we are beginning the next Colour Athenaeum. This on line home study course is described in more detail here.   It is not too late to join us if you are interested but act fast if you are.

The mists have been coming off the sea the last few days.  Sap is rising and the sweet smell of spring has been intermingled with the salty air.  Crocus, snow drops, daffodils….It is a good time to be alive!

I see you in your divine radiance, like the flowers, shining,

With love,

Chetna

The Silent yet Sizzling Inner Highway

Being close to your inner self, leads you through the eternal gateways. When you can give the gift of silence and softness to yourself in the hurry scurry madness, you create your own elixir.  With the demands and pressures of work, of making a living, we can delude ourselves that it is okay to sacrifice the moments of stillness and silence.  After all, things need to get done.

But it is an illusion.  We need the silence, we need the stillness, we need the space just to be: to be with the trees, the rivers, the rocks and stones.  Stillness, non-doing, is not a luxury; it is a necessity, to drop into the zone, to descend into our inner depths, to feel from within.  These moments of stillness create a magical energy which emanates through all our activities and helps to create genuine intimacy with others.

Last week the Colours Pale Orange, Peach and Embryo Pink, created a special gateway to receive this energy.  Excuse me for not writing sooner about it, but I jumped off the wheel of doing and I retreated into silence… and it was so blissful, so juicy, I knew you wouldn’t mind.

And now after stillness, we are restored, ready to move forward with the Chemical White Ray; Chemical White is an energy of alchemy, the momentum for inner transformation.

To quote from this week’s Rainbow Revelation:

“If you let the Chemical White energy move through you, riding its momentum, you find yourself exhilarated.  You feel a lightness of spirit – as though touched by the Delight of the angels as you hurtle past the boundaries. The lightning-swift reactor of Chemical White raises the rate of vibration, melting the unnecessary chains or safety-bars, which hold you back from hurtling forward on the inner quest.”

We all have conditionings and mindsets which limit us. And basically as we become enlightened, filled with more light, we need to drop the loads of old habits which keep us limited and small. Yes, you know the habits which need to go.  This week we are supported by the energies from existence to see what they are and to let them be taken from us.  The Chemical White Ray wants to make your life lighter and help you shape shift into your true self. The Timber Brown Master is on hand as well to help you prune away the dead wood which simply is a burden.

So do not cry for what you lose this week, learn to celebrate it and give thanks to the powers that be for helping you to shift the load and become more authentic and aligned with your soul’s purpose.

This is the time to say ‘yes’ to the alchemy. It is for the greater good.

We are starting the 8 week online course The Colour Athenaeum this coming week.  With great joy and excitement I welcome these souls into the initiations with the sacred alchemy of colour!  If you are still thinking of joining, let Chemical White help you to move quickly!

With love, with light, with laughter,

Chetna

Rainbow Hearts in Syntagma Square

“The heart that is open pours everywhere.  It has so much love in it, so much joy that it wants to shower everywhere – across the whole of the infinite and the eternal.

When a heart is overflowing, whatever it falls upon becomes soaked with its love.  The heart moves with Fishfin-Blue quivering alacrity and wherever it moves it feels love.

It has to keep on moving where love is needed, where the Existence wants it to move.  That is the signal of an open heart.”  Excerpt from this week’s Rainbow Revelation: http://www.laughingrainbow.org

Last week featured the stillness of Fountain Blue and the clarity of Diamond White. I found it very helpful when I was teaching Soul Retrieval to my group of shamanic practitioner apprentices in Dorset. I needed the quiet cool stillness of Fountain Blue to be empty enough to hear the voice of spirit guiding our circle moment to moment.  I was supported brilliantly by the Diamond White clarity and brilliance.

This week the Colours playing across the planet are Fish-fin Blue and Cackling Red. Fish-fin Blue supports us to move with existence’s will, not our own. Each moment we can surf with the currents flowing and arriving where we need to be. Fish dart in the ocean’s depths towards food and away from predators. We all can benefit from this instinctive intelligence. We can find the places where our love needs to flow.

I find myself in Athens amongst beloved friends. I arrived on Wednesday evening when the eruptions were happening in Syntagma square. One of my friends, Stelios who has been there since the beginning of the peaceful demonstrations explained to me with great enthusiasm the gathering of like-minded folk being active in the square.  He has been volunteering there for over a month and says in the beginning they were a small group and now they are a huge circle of people engaging in a process working for change.  His love flows to this tidal wave of energy which cries out for new fresh approaches.  He looks radiant though he speaks frankly about challenges and obstacles happening in the process.

They are bringing in new energies in a peaceful creative way yet the police are dropping tear gas bombs on them completely unprovoked. I ask why and he explains they want the people to go away from the square.  They have many interest groups and activities.  Anyone can come into the square and get a tour of what is happening.  He works at the reception desk there.

I drummed with Stelios in the foothills of Mount Imittos which embraces the eastern edge of the city. The pungent scent of sage, thyme and other herbs enveloped us as we walked up the mountain path.  I asked Stelios what results he is personally wishing for from the actions in Syntagma. We talked about how clear it is what is not wanted but how much harder it is to define a solution without falling into the same old traps.

We journeyed to the Descendents which is a method we use frequently in Medicine for the Earth.  We journeyed to the descendents who have created a balanced way of living on Earth in harmony with the elements and each other.  We asked them to show us the kind of society they have created and what advice they have for us to bring back to lay the best foundations for the future.

I recommend this journey for everyone, also the journey to be attuned the Earth’s new frequencies.

The Syntagma organizers created an evening of music and invited several bands. A dear friend Ranjana is in a band called Ghi & Thalassa, which translates as Earth and Sea. http://www.myspace.com/ghithalassa.  

They play with ancient classic Greek instruments and were invited to perform.  She told me in the middle of the music performances which everyone was enjoying very much, the police disrupted the people by throwing into the square three consecutive loud explosive fireworks which cause temporary deafness and blinding flashing light with smoke. I asked did the police do this because someone was making trouble?  She said no trouble, the music was excellent and people were dancing joyfully.

She observed this was a great disturbance just to shock people and frighten them to make them leave.  She saw several people pull on gas masks and continue to dance to the music even when the police put tear gas into the square.  When her group was on stage the tear gas continued.  She told me luckily she is not so affected by the gas but the percussionist of her group was severely affected and left swiftly after the song was completed.  She stayed to hear the group called Tiger Lillies play and said they were excellent (http://www.tigerlillies.com/703875/news/tiger-lillies-in-sydagma-square-2) . Despite the discouragement, people continued to dance with joy.

When I met Ranjana today for lunch she talked about yes it can be overwhelming and depressing and people can get excited and angry but it is important to remember to stay happy despite all the craziness happening. So we have some help from the Cackling Red master this week, to remember life is a play, and we can laugh and enjoy ourselves.  Ranjana knows some people have to keep the joy energy flowing. She likes to stay informed of events but not to get pulled down by them.  She reminded me if we stay angry what good can we create from anger?  We need to stay connected to that love flow and not lose the greater vision of what it is all about.

Fish-fin Blue and Cackling Red are here to help us this week.  Take advantage of them!

Working with Your Shadow, or is Your Shadow Working You?

When we open up to receive the expansive, greater fields of Light we also open the darkest and longest hidden corners of our psyches.  This may be the first time light has reached into our dank recesses.  Now is the time to exercise awareness of the BLACK RAY.

“After the abandonment to Light comes the opposite: the energies of BLACK are making a comeback. Black is not evil; it is simply the besieged ego wanting to express itself. It is the frantic, frightened ego – the shadow – withering in the face of the energies of the Time-Space Portal.”

When you immerse yourself in the Great Light, the boomerang effect comes into play; what is hidden in your shadow will make its self known as the light shines upon it.  So what do you do?  How do you cope when the deeply hidden, longest festering wounds, scars and stories come into the light?  Do you revert to defending them? Do you re-assert the ego and get out your battle axes, sometimes even in the name of spirit? Or do you hang in there watching as the divine washes clean your pus-engorged past, and places a fresh dressing upon it? How easy is it to allow yourself to be healed of the burdens of the past?  How vulnerable do you allow yourself to be? Will you allow your ego to be broken?

All of us, without exception carry the ancient wound.  And what is the ancient wound? It is separation from Source.  The Black Ray is to help you go into the painful past with a sharp witnessing alertness, so you are not seduced back into your normal defensive patterns.  We all have routines which stop us from moving on: regular lines of defense to keep our ego established. The Black Ray helps you to infiltrate your own fortress of ego. It allows the healing balm to tenderly soothe the angry sores.

One of the dangers of the egoic shadow is to claim it is being driven by spirit.

“ ‘I am following what the spirits tell me’, or ‘I am following the hand of God’. Sometimes people say they are being ‘guided by Spirit’, but it is not true. It is simply that Spirit is not standing in the way.

This week we are invited to “Beware the cunning of the mind. If you go off in a mad direction – a direction you think is okay –don’t say it is us who are guiding you. Take responsibility, whether you are right or wrong or neutral. […] The ego is like a machine, an engine, with its own agenda. It can catch us in its agenda. It can throw the responsibility onto us.

Of course many times you are being “led” by Spirit.  But you can always tell. Something feels right about it; a lightness and softness exude from this path. If the path feels magical harmonious, then of course the hand of Spirit is with you. But why say we are leading you? You are leading yourself. You are grown up enough to tap the eternal wisdom which is the Ocean – the Ocean of the Immortal Ones.”

We have free will and the spirits cannot stop us from enacting our old sagas we have carried from lifetimes.  They may attempt to help us see it, but we must be the ones to shine our awareness upon ourselves. The universe is infinitely compassionate, it will bring drama to us, so we can witness and free ourselves from the past nightmares.  But we have to crystallize our own awareness.  No one can do that for us.  We each have to transform ourselves.  No one can do our enlightenment for us. The Black Ray is to help you go steadily into the dark night, so you can get off the wheel and dive into the infinite.

Hold steady this week as you take the plunge into your own depths. May you find your buried treasures and transform them into pure gold awareness.

With great love,

Chetna

Bursting Through the Time-Space Portals

“If you cannot open to these energies easily in this time of bursting, you will feel a sense of deep remorse and red-blooded frustration. Let the energies burst in a creative way, which highlights the joys and flowering of the springtime.”

Cadaver Red and Barbarous Red are the energies pounding through to the Earth this week. Watch how easy it is for you to fly off the handle and burst into little fits of rage.    This week is time to be ultra aware of any tendencies to dump your frustrations upon others or attempts to manipulate or take a bite out of someone.

The game is to find the way to CREATIVELY express these potent energies. These energies are incredibly fiery and passionate; if you go with the ego you will rip and hurt and be destructive.  If you go with the higher self you will use this force for positive creation, and thereby raise your own frequency accessing limitless energies through the portals.  Your past limitations will be burnt away swiftly as you sacrifice them to the fires of creation.

This is a deep week of initiation.  Invite the reds to burn away the dross of your ego and celebrate with great love the entrance of the realms of the enlightened ones!

Burst and burst yet again and again.

Aho!

The Colour Athenaeum, an 8 week online Colour course which culminates in a live weekend in Dorset begins the 1st of May.  For more information check out www.vision-voyages.com
