A new range… Busy bee collection and Cornish scenes.
Heartfelt connection… An important teaching for 2012.
On my visit to France over Christmas I visited a beautiful place called Le Puy en Velay. This stunning French town has a large church holding a statue of the black Madonna. I climbed many steps up to the entrance and entered through a grand, heavy oak door. Inside the church it was very peaceful and beautiful, bringing a sense of comforting stillness but at the same time a feeling that there were many energies of a finer/higher vibration ready to listen to my earthly thoughts etc.
At the front of the church was the area where the black Madonna was housed. In front of the walls hung heavy dark blue material, long antique lamps hung down from high above and the black Madonna statue stood lovingly on top of the alter. The lamps shone a delicate red light from within them and in front of the alter were many candles that people had lit during their prayers and placed in the sand. It really was a magnificent sight and the feeling was one of peace and love.
I sat for some 25 minutes on a long wooden seat in front of the black Madonna and as my body and mind became still, from a heart level I started to connect with her. I asked her about 2012 and asked how on an individual and global level, what was the best way to be of service and the best way to move through this special year. As I connected to her it was like I sensed fear from not just what was held within me but also held within others on earth. Her energy seemed to calm and wash away these fears, clearing a path so that her heart voice could be heard clearly to many, not just me. I felt her voice connecting within my heart and will centre. Her message was of love and understanding, acceptance and openness to now try and BE from our hearts, at every turn in life’s moving river to truthfully come from our hearts. The softness, support and love that I was feeling filled my whole being, it was like a wonderful angelic mother had put her arms around me to comfort me. The more I relaxed into the silence the more I connected with the subtle vibrations of the Madonna’s essence. Her voice was clear and filling my heart rapidly. She explained that by coming from our hearts as much as possible would help to fine tune our vibrations, lift our energy bodies into the light, allowing us to feel lighter, clearer, happier and more connected to our fellow brothers and sisters on the planet. By all of us coming from a heart level we could all be connected together as one, all of us being connected, plants, trees, the oceans, the elements, every living thing singing from the same hymn sheet.
I truly felt so grateful to have connected with the black Madonna in this way and feel her essence is truly planted within my heart. If I feel negative or heavy I remind myself of the wonderful meeting with her in the church and instantly my energy is back there again and I feel the heart connection reinforced.
Now that we are actually in 2012 it is time to work and be from our hearts with truth and love, it being time to step out of the fear that our ego’s can sometimes place us in and come from a place of understanding and lightness. When we come from our hearts, our fears can subside, barriers dissolve and we are able to move on our paths freely feeling empowered and loved. Working with each other, taking notice of each other and openly helping others when it is asked for, I feel will help towards all of us living in harmony with each other and our beautiful planet.
Let us all walk forward with open, loving hearts connecting with fellow beings and nature, feeling grateful for the magic that comes from being one together.
