Solstice and Balance



Solstice is approaching and I am all set. These last few months of intense re-ordering had me pretty much focused inwards, nothing outside of me mattered much at all, it was all about discovering the internal relationship to my soul. I encountered every last doubt hiding deep within my physical form, struggled with trusting my body and felt so pregnant with new energy that my body was no longer my own. Through it all, I remained true to me, it was really all I ever had; this fierce determination to go beyond the current reality, and to experience fully all that I had chosen for myself . It is no more about all of the teachings that I have encountered over these past fifteen years or so, some of which without, I feel that I might well have drowned in my own darkness. The Crimson Circle monthly broadcasts were the the steady light towards which I focused and continued to head, never wavering in my knowing that all was well somewhere and that sometime, I would arrive. The Kryon teachings were invaluable, as were the Teachings of Michael and Lightworker was always a welcome addition. Finding a conscious community of creative collaborators was the missing piece and this I found in the last few months and it was the support that allowed me to dive even deeper within, discovering all the hidden treasures lurking in the shadows. I never was lost, it only felt that way. I truly had placed every thing that I ever needed along the path and promised to find it just as needed and I did, for I am the only magician in my life. It is all my creation.

It is with great pleasure that I now find myself in this brand new place of knowing that I have made it…all of me is here now, enjoying life. Eating has become a pure and sensual pleasure and I am happy to announce that none of it is illegal! So if you are like me and are feeling this immense pressure to feel freer; better, keep going. Breathe deeply into your choice to invite all of you home for the holidays. I can hear it now, playing so softly in the background, “I’ll be home for Christmas!” Yes, we will be. It is already happening…the light is returning. Solstice; perfect balance of dark and light and I AM too.

SEE YOU in 2012, IN JOY the holidays!

Can it be December already? Time has seemed to slow down of late and speed up all at the same time. It feels as though my waking life has become a dream and that my dreams are now starting to show up in my day to day life. As I walked last night under the rising moon, so full and so bright, I felt such a joyous fullness in me; a sense of completion and fulfillment, that no matter what tomorrow brings, I am fully here now and receiving the gift of this present moment. I felt so grateful and wondered if others were feeling it too. Just then I bumped into someone that I have worked with and her joy was bubbling too, as she shared how wonderfully her life was moving in the direction that she wanted. She was feeling positive and happy, looking forward to her future. I was delighted to have run into her; to have been on the receiving line. It feels now as though everything is beginning to make more sense and that the difficult contractions have not been in vain!


This planetary expansion has brought with it so much hardship, as the old structures continue to crumble and fade. “Who are you,” we have been asked again and again. For those who are leading the march into a new level of expanded awareness, the completion and proof of our new alignments will be easier to find; the connections now will stick and assist the forward movement. All are invited to open to the new potentials swirling around us.


The full Gemini moon, in the sign of communication, illuminates all that we are ready to express. It is a time to be truthful within ourselves, so that our offering contributes rather than criticises. Conscious collaboration requires both sides to be radically honest with themselves first, in order to create anything of true value and the many preparations of Christmas time will give us all ample time to test our skills and own where we each have work to do. No longer will it be tolerable to sit on the sidelines waiting, the building phase is upon us. We are in the final lead up to 2012 with our earths’ center and our galactic core coming into perfect alignment; an event that happens once every 26,000 years! Yes, this solstice holds a very unique promise, as we enter fully this new Age of Aquarius and open our hearts to the dreams held within. Each one of us has a valuable contribution. So this Christmas, I invite you to BE the present that you are, own how you affect everyone around you, notice and you can make a choice to be part of the growing movement that has a powerful effect on all of life. As we each are able to fully embrace who we are, we become part of the updraft and can help uplift those around us.  It starts right here, with me, with you. Merry Christmas! May the love of you shine through always. It has been such a joy sharing. Thank you, Brenda.

Expanding Into Me



By Brenda Harley


I began this morning by doing things differently. It started with my wondering about the morning coffee ritual, such a lovely connector time between my partner and I, yet I felt the lack of desire for the actual substance. Still I love the joy of his offering, so I decided to just let it unfold. This morning however, he did not offer and I realized that he was not making the traditional second cup for himself either… hmmm. Then he asked if I would like some boiled eggs, “lovely” I replied. Already the day was feeling slightly out of the ordinary.


Soon after eating, he was off to do some errands and I settled in to enjoy a phone call with a dear friend who has moved away. Feeling into her expansive awareness after the call, I thought a walk might be in order. These last few weeks of intense energy shifts with my physical body responding on such a deep level has left me feeling very slow, yet not low, with little outward focus. I have enjoyed this breathing space very much, however this morning it is cold and I felt no desire whatsoever to be out in it. What I really wanted was a connection to my body and realized that some yoga would do the same thing. As I moved, breathing deeply into each posture, I felt as though I finally understood the union between body and breath; the postures, each one so perfectly demonstrating our journey, each one able to show me clearly where the restrictions are still felt in my body. It was a new experience for me and I rejoiced in the simplicity of life. It is all right here, held safely in the deepest parts of us and ready to reveal itself as we are; no mistakes. I have loved my time in the classes of others, but now it is time to enter my own.


All of us are on this journey together, each one in our own experience of awareness, each one perfect as we are with no need to change or grow. So much external pressure exists on us to behave in certain ways, to believe in certain things, with each culture, each religion certain that they hold the key; this need to be right or superior somehow is driving so much of our lives. Gandhi’s “be the change that you want in your life” is still the best advice that I have ever been heard. To stop war we must be so peaceful within, that any attack only brings forth our truth. It is only as each one of us shifts from being in a reactive state outside of our control, where we continually find something or someone else to blame for what is happening to us, is the beginning. Finding a deep and genuine response to what is coming at us is the only way to affect true change; “as within, so without’.


With so many ones, the number of beginning, showing up with this last energetic wave of the 11:11:11….I am feeling a real sense of newness beginning to take root in me and I notice the same in everyone I know. So let’s all stop looking backwards and join in with all the wonderfully expansive new “pay it forward” endeavours some way this holiday season. If something good is happening for you, perhaps finding a way to share it in some way will accelerate the momentum. Sharing freely is a wonderful energy enhancer. Then simply stand back to witness all the ways that the joy floods right back into you. Expect the unexpected and prepare yourself, because here, anything is possible!
