All I need is a Sign...

Words:

Clarity  Energy  Vitality  Brave  'Action'

These are the words rising for me, I know I'm late for good intentions 2014, but these things can't be rushed....

Insert from journal ~

I have had a few epiphanies in my life and this is one serious epiphany! 
I have recently felt in a static place, a dense, hemmed in state of mind and I need a release! 
I had the feeling there would be a 'key' that would unlock the reason for these feelings, 
I thought the 'key' might come to me in the form of a word and thereby release me
that I would adopt this word for 2014!



Listening to these lyrics by 'Air' I sensed a rise in my spirit ~" all I need is a sign to get behind the sun and cast my weight ...."  At that point this was exactly how felt, I could do this, I could add my weight, my energy to the sun and it would make a difference!  A difference not only to me but others too!  That 'sign' came for me in the beauty and loving expressions of brave individuals with 'fierce fighting' natures....

So there was the clarity I'd asked for in my centering meditation prayer, the 'key' word being 'Brave', this was further endorsed by this powerful post offered by Rebecca for Kelly who is battling bravely from day to day ~ ~> Please go and see ~>  *Gathering Light*  

I was baffled and intrigued by the image in this post as I could see an 'iconic' figure of the Virgin but carrying a weapon! So I asked Rebecca the significance thereof, here is her reply in part:  (with kind permission.)
"The artist took an iconic image of the virgin of guadalupe and superimposed half of her as a mexican revolutionary.  i just felt so drawn to that image and even though i do not know your friend, i understand how one must be in touch with her warrior self to do true battles in life. it is interesting to see the virgin, known as all loving and completely compassionate wearing partial clothes of a man and holding a riffle. i feel certain that we must embrace our totality. that in and of itself is the road to healing. to not access "all" of ourselves is never to see fully, or feel complete. i am speaking metaphorically in the sense of not being afraid or shying away from our powers, our strengths, our accomplishments, our fierce love nature!"
Wow, I was bowled over by this and it's implications for my word/phrase/action for 2014,
the words fierce, brave, warrior have been popping up all over the place, I have been pondering how I might increase my own 'fierce love nature', I have some early day impulses! I need a plan....!!

Norwegian Dreamscape Expanded

Meditation Morn
My Dreamscape Meanderings
Heavenly pass~time 


I rose early the first morning at dawn, although I'm not sure if it was dawn really as Norway is after all the land of the midnight sun!  Anyway it was an exceptional time to experience the fjords we were told so I crept out of the cabin, being careful not to disturb my sleeping partner and up onto the open deck.   I was the first to appear, only the staff were out arranging the loungers. What a wonderful feeling almost alone on this massive liner feeling totally in awe of both my traveling home and the deep fjord waters we were slipping silently through.

I climbed up the stairs to the highest deck and stood in absolute amazement at the sheer beauty of this place, I thought I could hear some kind of faint mysterious musical notes, to this day I'm still not sure whether this was my imagination going into overdrive at the whole mystical experience or a distant melody carrying through on the air.....

Shadow Land & Spontaneity

Usually in photography I practice the concept of noticing the moments and what arises and arrives spontaneously as opposed to a staging experience i.e. purposefully choosing a subject to capture. Picking up the camera when something hits my radar of perception is second nature and this in turn mostly leads to the pleasurable treasures of intuitive photography.  Recently due to the exceptional brilliance of the autumn sun through my windows there have been lots of opportunities to capture the clarity of shadows or their subtlety for that matter! Shadow photography is a favourite form of imaging for me.  However, I wanted to make the shots a little more defined for added interest so this lead me to try manufacturing the outcome, or in other words staging!  This doesn't come naturally to me during a photography experience for it touches on the subject of control, taking me out of the comfort zone of going with a meditative flow and into the area of thinking or a cognitive interrupti…
