Hello Dear Readers!

Apologies for my recent writer’s block. This is a busy time of year for me in real life, and there is less time to indulge my spiritual quest.

However, the main reason I have been absent is an unexpected change of path, and this must lead to changes around my blog.

For a number of years now I have walked an Eclectic Pagan path. I have enjoyed, learned and been enriched through this. I have learned that magick is real, that we can indeed influence our destiny with conscious co-creation; I am still learning how to live in season, and how to truly absorb the healing and loving energies of nature, of our Mother Earth.

But still, something didn’t quite feel right for me. I have struggled for many years with one particular lesson: how to relinquish control. In the Law of Attraction, there is a key stage in manifestation that I never quite mastered – LETTING GO. Despite using the mantra “Let go, let God”; despite trying every which way I might to trust the universe to deliver my wishes in the right way for my highest good; I still found myself stressing out repeatedly about the hows, whens, whys and wherefores of manifesting my needs, goals and heart’s desires. With the effect that things would manifest, but usually in a slightly different way, with added complications or obstacles, than I had intended.

I have always wanted my path to be one of service, one of love. An angelic path to go with an angelic heart. A mystical path to go with a mystical mind.

I think my problem was feeling I had to label it.

I have been helped to overcome this problem by the greatest teacher to have walked the earth: Christ. Days before I was due to attend a BSSK Mind, Body and Spirit event in April, he came to me in a dream. I have dreamed about Jesus before, but not for some time. I resonated closely with the energy of Jesus during my Christian upbringing. In the dream, he appeared angry at first – perhaps angry is not the right word, perhaps more confused or frustrated at my choices, for he was still exuding kindness and understanding and above all love – he is of course a being of the purest love. He spoke to me, though I didn’t remember the words upon waking. It touched me deeply. At the BSSK event, I attended a workshop devoted to awakening the higher heart chakra, in which we worked with none other than Jesus. During the meditation, I saw him approach before the workshop leader brought him in. He placed one hand on my third eye and the other on my crown; meantime I felt Archangel Michael, my constant protector and guide, place calming hands on my shoulders, wings around them touching my heart. They were healing me – freeing me of this need to control. Putting the final piece in place in that jigsaw and completing that lesson. After the workshop I also felt drawn to purchase a Christ aura spray, which I have been working with ever since. Even the lady at the stall saw my aura after using the spray and commented that I had found what I needed right now.

Three linked events, to me, is not a coincidence: it’s a sign. It took weeks for me to assimilate the lesson and the healing. I knew that Paganism was no longer the right path for me – not in isolation. Neither was Christianity – of course, I had already found that, years ago. I had been attracted for some time to interfaith webpages and communities and my realisation has been that I am on my own spiritual path, interfaith in every way, seeing beauty and wisdom in all faiths and no faiths. The higher beings – angels, guides and ascended masters – do not see division of faith. They see only faith. They do not see right paths or wrong paths. They see only paths. They see from a higher perspective – one of pure love. In reality, there is only one’s own path. There is only one’s own truth. There is only love. And our paths spiral inwards, like a labyrinth, from our outer learning to our inner soul – our link while incarnate to our higher self. For some, one particular path is right for their soul’s learning; for others, it is right to explore the path of atheism and complete self-sufficiency; for others still, the path is personal and assimilates learning from many sources.

Since these events, I have felt peace and love like I have never known. I have had the energy to be more of service than ever. I have felt closer to the angels, and awakened a connection with the Ascended Masters – those souls such as Jesus who have ascended from earthly existence and now act as heavenly guides to those still on earth. While I wouldn’t say I have no stress, I certainly have an assurance that all will come right in the end, and that I can indeed trust. I can indeed let go.

I have focused my energies into the Spiritual Solace FB page during this time, and now I feel I can come back here and resume writing.

Of course, thisĀ  blog needs to grow and evolve along with its author, hence the name and energy change.

I will continue to update the Season by Season section, but incorporating more than just Pagan festivals. The posts will now be about a much wider journey, and may still include magical inspirations, but also meditations, prayers, mystical experience. I will start up the Archangel and Crystal additions when I have time. I have re-named the Pages section as “A Labyrinth of Lessons”. They are different than the posts I make out here. The posts are more about sharing the journey, sharing experience, and sharing spiritual tools that may help others find solace, magick, power and peace. The pages are crystallised chunks of my learning from years of experience – free lessons to all readers who may need them.

Angel blessings to all of you!

Silverla. Xxx.

It’s not the end of the world

As 21.12.12 approaches, I am aware that some people are in fear, trepidation or uncertainty about what lies ahead. As I’m sure most readers will know, 21.12.12 is the end of a phase in the ancient Mayan calendar, and some would have us believe the end of the world itself. Reputable mystics from all over the planet do not agree, and by all accounts, information I have received myself from the Archangelic kingdom indicates that it is an end, but also a beginning, as are all ends. It is not the apocalypse. It is a point in time of a great energy shift, which may leave some chaos in its wake, but which will also bring a new spiritual dawn.

Look for the evidence of this around you. 2011 was the year of twin flames. Many people will have experienced finding, securing their relationship with, marrying, connecting, or channelling their twin flame – depending on whether they are destined to be with them in this incarnation. 2012 has been the year of chaos – the eye of the storm. Many people I know have experienced ongoing struggles, losses, problems, dilemmas, disharmonies and confusions in their lives – in their career, their family life, their relationships and not least with their health. Blazes of glory followed by the darkest of days, an emotional rollercoaster which may have been hard to bear but which will have been resolving your karma and speeding up your spiritual evolution.

We have now reached the point in time where the storm will rage, but those that weather it will see the beautiful rainbow at the dawn of a new spiritual age…eventually. Don’t expect events of either catastrophic or euphoric magnitude on 21.12.12. Do expect to find a moment of stillness, a moment of pure power, when you will have a knowing that something has changed inside. Do expect your heart to go out to everyone and anyone in need. Do expect things to get easier, step by step and day by day, from December 22nd onwards. Do expect the veil to be thinner, for more to have faith, for more to embrace the spiritual side of life rather than the material, for more people to know their angels and discard their fear of death, which in turn is a transition, not an ending. You can see it happening now, with people having to be more frugal due to the economic situation they have looked to other aspects of life for fulfilment.

In short, the things that don’t matter really will cease to matter, one magnificent human soul at a time.

Lightworkers, it’s your time to shine. Find time to pray for the world with your own words from your own heart-song, find time to meditate and visualise you shining your light out to all from the mountaintops. Those aspiring to spiritual growth, pray for help with this, ask the angels for help, let the universe know what you need. Those in fear, ask Archangel Michael for protection and Archangel Ariel for courage, turn to your family for solace and comfort and love and you will know the miracle of grace and gratitude on this most auspicious of days.

If you do nothing else, make a wish on what is essentially the most powerful winter solstice we have ever known, and light a candle in the darkness. Every point of light makes a bridge on which angels may tread.

Welcome to the time of transformation. Welcome to the age of miracles. Welcome to your brave new world.

The following Hopi Indian message was written in 1970, but about this very point in time. As soon as I saw it in a magazine, I knew I had to share it with as many people as possible.

“You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour. Now you must go back and tell the people that this is The Hour. And there are the things to be considered:

Where are you living? What are you doing? What are your relationships? Are you in the right relationship? Where is your water?

Know your garden. It is time to speak your truth.

Create your community. Be good to each other and do not look outside yourself for the leader. This could be a good time!

There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart, and they will suffer greatly.

Know the river has its destination. The elders say we must let go of the shore, push off into the middle of the river, keep our eyes open and our heads above the water. See who is in there with you and celebrate.

At this time in history we are to take nothing personally, least of all ourselves. For the moment that we do, our spiritual growth and journey comes to a halt.

The time of the lone wolf is over. Gather yourselves! Banish the word “struggle” from your attitude and your vocabulary. All that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.

We are the ones we have been waiting for.”
