the Beauty that is…

‘Release anything that is weighing you down and open your life up to new possibilities’¬†¬†¬† ‘Steamy August Stars’ by Kim Falconer

Stunning yellow paddocks fill the valley of Lindesay Creek.¬† There’s running¬†water in the creek, clear and blue.¬† I dipped my hand and took a sip, it tasted good.¬† Groups of stinging nettles ready for picking when I¬†return with¬†my gloves.¬† The morning is alive with bird song…¬† much celebration, there’s been¬†rain.¬† Rainbow Lorikeets hop along the ground foraging¬†for food, the magnificent Magpie, his muscular body and brilliant black and white.¬† The yellow beaked Noisy Miners flitting through the golden Candle Banksia, so generous with¬†its giving.¬† The Willy Wagtail¬†with¬†its high-pitched¬†call.¬† The kookaburra… well this is their home.¬† Morning Sun escaping from heavy mist turns paddocks into gold and¬†reflects on¬†smooth white trunks… a family of Ghost Gums, across the creek in the neighbouring property. The harmony of life¬†so vividly¬†present.¬† It’s clear what is.


I¬†don’t suppose any of us were really ready for 2014.¬† This subterranean passage we’ve wandered into, at first shocking, until¬†it’s purpose is¬†made clear.¬†¬†¬†In 2012 this journey began, the intensity building, the blessings increasing… we all became¬†a part of a massive shift. Everything moving preparing for birth.¬† We’d¬†grown accustomed to the darkness, without our knowing… in so many little ways.¬† It crept in, till it became a part of daily living.¬† We forgot what and who we really are.

As each month passes, I’ve found myself saying ‘it’s a big time’… ¬†I’ve stopped doing that.¬† It appears to be a continual flow.¬†¬† It’s a significant year, a passageway of sorts.¬† Like a portal between worlds… a challenging crossing, both dangerous and frightening.¬† We were given courage, to use.¬† It seems we’re being stretched in ways we haven’t before.¬† Events around us can overwhelm.¬† It’s important to not allow fear.¬† The darkness feeds off fear… and is afraid of courage.¬† I’ve never forgotten those words from a very dear friend of mine.¬† Courage is what the darkness fears.

It could sound like a fairytale… what is the darkness?¬† It’s the absence of Light, of clarity, of understanding… of Peace.¬† We know what that feels like, because we feel it inside us.¬†¬†We’re not built for darkness,¬†it creates much turmoil in¬†our body.¬† We were built for love and joy.¬† Our body reflects what is happening to us.¬† We need Peace more than we know.¬† It’s the missing piece of the jigsaw, the one¬†we look so far and wide for.¬† It’s our greatest need.

With lots of Leo and Scorpio this month, expansion and contraction… creative expression and simmering emotions.¬† Venus and Mars challenging each other.¬† Both Venus and Mars have returned to their natal place for me… the energy is familiar.¬† It’s time to understand them more clearly, with Jupiter¬†giving so¬†generously.¬† It’s time to make our way through… to the other side.

A time for finding ‘you’.¬† This is the time, no time will be greater, the time is now.

Turning this ‘steam’ into a powerful source of energy… for transformation and growth.

Have a productive month…. much love marilynxxx
