Letters to the Universe… The Energy Edition!

Dear Legs,
How good you’ve been to help me with my long overdue exercises this week. Yes, I’m aware that I haven’t actually ran that many steps, but it is always good to start gently and then build up. At least by doing what I have done, I have given myself just a little more energy – a little get up and go – and I can climb stairs without gasping for as many breaths as I had done so before. And here I was last week complaining about you throbbing with vigour. You do a lot, so thank you.

Dear Lion’s Gate Portal,
I’m pleased you have opened this week, and sent bursts of energy in our direction. I must apologise for not really knowing that much about you, as I’d only started hearing about you about a month ago, but you are a fascinating phenomenon – and one that can be felt! I must also apologise for not knowing the correct way to address you; Lionsgate Portal, Lions Gate Portal or Lion’s Gate Portal… at least I’ve used all three over the past couple of weeks, so it’s all good! Here’s to more great energy!

Dear Blogging,
I think my energy levels are on the increase again. I’m feeling inspired, although inspiration at times does need a bit of persuasion to make an appearance – but in the end it does, so it’s all good. I may even get back into writing, reading and commenting very soon… but one step at a time.

Dear Painting,
It has been another week without anything being painted, I know. With my energy levels being on the up, I may get around to painting again next week. My intention is to paint at least once a fortnight, and share the outcome here on the blog. I need the practice, I know, and not doing anything isn’t getting me anywhere near the practice I need. Time to start stirring those creative artistic energies once again, methinks!

Dear Third Eye,
I’m still working on opening you, so don’t worry. Since I’ve started those ‘exercises’ (namely meditation!) I have been feeling a lot calmer, and long may it continue. Just breathing seems to draw a lot of positive energy in, and the more positive the better. Here’s to more spiritual openings!

Dear Positive Vibes,
(((((Thank you)))))
Both for coming into me, and being reflected out again. Positivity is always the way forward!

Dear Blogland,
I’ve created a new candle for you to use as and when you wish. This is to focus on positivity. Let’s get that good energy out there!

Positivity Candle

Other candles are available here.

Dear Time,
Have I noticed the impossible? I seem to be experiencing moments where I can actually gather a breath! Not that I’m complaining, I hasten to add. Please continue to improve this excellent balance, and all will be well. Thank you for what you’ve done so far!

And to finish… Dear All,
Another round up of letters completed. Slightly shorter than usual, but we’re saving energy here at Beyond the Sphere this week. Not using as many letters for the letters, so to speak. Saving energy isn’t a bad thing for the environment either (types I with three rooms lit up brightly and I only use one at a time… best get that sorted!) Have a good weekend with an amazingly fabulous uplift to your energies also – however you wish to use them.

Thank you for reading!

P.S. Here’s a painting of a very large swirling mass of energy, far out toward the edge of the Solar System, just because:

Well, I do like to link to my other blog from time to time, so why not?

The Tree at the Edge of Elsewhere

Right at the edge of Elsewhere sits a quaint and magical forest. Full of old trees, echoes of legends whisper through the leaves as the gentle breeze makes its way to the centre of the forest. Knowledge comes flooding in. Sense of purpose. Hope. Dreams. Wisdom. Realisation.

Elsewhere is forever changing. It adapts to suit the mood of the observer. It creates shadows if shadows are needed. Stories too, if required. Look beyond the final tree at Legends Point and a whole new world opens up ahead, within arm’s reach. Almost within grabbing distance.

That new world is there to be grabbed. Well, to be made. Elsewhere provides the inspiration, the enthusiasm, the spark and the flicker of light to set things in motion. The idea for the way forward.

The final tree is known locally as the Elsew Tree.

Those same locals know that taking the tree out of the equation, leaves only here behind.

Here is now.

And Now is where all of those dreams of Elsewhere really begin.

Letters to the Universe… The Reflections Edition!

Dear Car Breakdown Recovery Man,
I must apologise for having to get you out so early this morning, but it was necessary as my car just stopped completely as I set off at what is usually an extremely busy road junction. Luckily it was quiet, and nobody saw me huffing and puffing manoeuvring the car backwards and forwards, as I shoved and pulled and steered to get it off the main road, and safely parked by the side of the kerb, facing the correct way, on a side road. I must apologise once more for you going to the wrong road… although how would I be expected to know there were two roads with the same name in the town? Thank you for getting things sorted for me quickly.

Dear Weather,
Thank you for not being so absolutely scorching hot as I sat waiting for the car breakdown recovery man to arrive – although I must add it was fun performing all of those pushing and pulling manoeuvres in torrential rain. Thinking about it now, it, and I, would have been far worse in searing heat.

Dear Blogland,
I can now advise you that silly week is over. Another version of it may be back soon with further posts of utter randomness for you to reflect upon and ponder. I now have the task, however, to ponder upon my next blog posts… sensible almost sensible ones, that is.

Dear Mind,
Have you recognised yet that what you see is yourself reflected back upon you? The people you meet… the things you read… the events of the day are all there to make you look more closely at yourself. What needs changing. What no longer serves a purpose. The clues are there.

Dear Photography,
I am pleased to have discovered the term for when I take a photo and I sometimes see orbs of light contained within the image – backscatter. A flash of light reflected back from dust or mist to a digital camera. I must say, however, that this phenomenon cannot account for all orb photographs, as I am a firm believer that orbs also indicate the presence of spiritual activity as well. That is how I feel, I must add – there are many sceptics who would vehemently disagree.

Dear The Power Of Threefold Return,
I always bear your law, and that of your equivalent Power of Tenfold Return, in mind with my serious thoughts and writing. I must admit that my spur of the moment thoughts and actions tend to be done in a ‘red mist’ situation, where no rational thought takes place, and I just act. I hope you understand that when I kick the chair after stubbing my toe on it, I shouldn’t receive three (or ten!) kicks back for doing so. That said – you are the powers of the Universe, and I have no right to question you. (I’m really writing this to myself, rather than you, to remind myself what a powerful law you are, and hopefully my spur of the moment actions will begin to decrease… not that there are that many, as you know…)

Dear Fun,
I miss you! When will you return? Don’t pull that face at me! I can see you. Hehehe! I see you’re back. Fun? Fun??

Dear Legs,
Don’t worry. You can rest this weekend. After all the hefty shoving I subjected you to earlier today, it’s no wonder you’re throbbing with vigour. If you weren’t throbbing so much, I’d tap my feet to your rhythm! Ooh, a paradox to reflect on there. I love a good paradox!

Dear Watercolour Paints,
Don’t sit there looking all forlorn at me. I can see you. Yes, I know you want to be used, and you will be once again very soon. And so will you, acrylics. I have some little square canvases to use you on… and some big ones too, but it’s always best to start small. The next letter may give a clue as to when I may start painting again.

Dear Commenters And Visitors,
Once again I apologise. It’s taking me an age to get around to visit and reply. I’d like to say this is due to circumstances beyond my control, but in reality, that’s poppycock. Utter balderdash. I just need to reorganise a few things, get myself better organised, and set myself up a nicer blogging routine. I enjoy blogging, and nothing is going to get in my way to make that change. Nothing. Not even time constraints. Reflect on that, time!

And to finish… Dear All,
It’s always a good thing to consider your actions after you’ve done them, or even as you’re doing them if you can. Every action has a reaction, every effect causes a ripple, every vibe causes other vibes to reflect off them, and multiply, diminish or change. The simplest word said in the wrong context could have far reaching consequences, and affect the listener in unintended ways. Even the word said in the right context can have similar far reaching consequences, but in different ways… don’t overanalyse, but be considerate. Reflect on yourself and see yourself reflected back.

Thank you for reading!

P.S. Here’s a reflection to reflect upon, just because:

Well, I have been posting a lot of photos of the sky recently, so one more won’t hurt!

Raindrops on Petals

Is it the answers you seek
Or the tasks undertaken
That are prevalent upon the mind?
Are nights sleepless due to worry
Or stress of any kind?
Are days filled with dread?
Horror at the thought
Of walking out into the world
Behaving how you ought?
Do you see beauty in every little thing?
Raindrops on petals…
When a bird sings…
A clear blue sky is all that it takes
To open the mind, release the mistakes
Cast upon the wind the weight of the mind
Release the worries, relax and unwind.
On a day full of rain
Stop and refresh
Cleanse the mind
Of darkness and stress.
When winds start to blow
In softness or strength,
Just know the energy within
Is within you also.
That energy is free
Free like a bird
And so is your mind
Or haven’t you heard?

Soar into the skies
Lift up and be free
Everything starts now
That’s EVERYthing, see?

Open.
Release.
Forgive yourself.
Be free.

These are the words that Indigo gave me.

I went on a guided meditation this evening, to find my Spirit Guide. I went to my Place of Peace and Tranquility, and saw snippets of it, but not the whole thing. I saw Spirits of the Wind playing and chasing each other, laughing as they passed me. I saw many eyes looking a me, and a lion’s paw ushered me to look over to some steps, which were lit from just around a corner. As I walked over to these steps, I noticed the colour indigo flowing around me. It too was pointing me in that direction. I must point out that at this point of the meditation, I was to ask my Guide to come forth and ask for his or her name. My Guide wasn’t visible anywhere, and no name was mentioned to me.

I walked toward the steps, and a lot of strange-looking people, maybe elves although I’m not sure, started jumping out and skipping around the bushes. Not in a frightening way, as they were all smiling at me as I passed them, but they soon vanished back into the greenery or shadows.

As I stepped upon the first step, the meditation was coming to a close. The gentle voice was counting upwards to 5 and I was being brought back into reality. I felt very relaxed, even though I hadn’t found my Guide or received any guidance or asked any questions.

I started to play some relaxing music, and wrote the above rhyme. It’s a bit jumpy, I just went with the flow and wrote the words that came to me.

I researched Indigo, which I found symbolically represents the Sixth Chakra (Ajna) which is said to include the third eye. The chakra is related to intuition and gnosis (spiritual knowledge). This I never knew until writing this.

The meditation was one to communicate with the Spirit Guide through opening the third eye.

The photo is one I took earlier today on my new mobile phone.

The first step. Now, I wonder what that represents?
