Time To Reflect On What You Can Change!

Spiritual CoachingSo here we go. A New Year, and all the fresh possibilities that brings with it.

And yet we find ourselves in carryover lockdown scenarios that have held sway for nine months.

These scenarios seem to carry overbearing shadow light psychologies that can create a sense that CHANGE is inaccessible.

And yet CHANGE may be more accessible than ever.

But maybe not down the well worn traditional pathways, where the light has become dimmed.

So what pathways am I referring to then? Invisible ones?

Well maybe…

It’s like a subtle change of direction that doesn’t alter the course of travel, but alters the flight path enough to make it feel like we are walking an unwalked path.

It’s an inner recognition that MORE OF THE SAME isn’t going to work.

It’s for each person to find their own subtle shift, based on pattern recognition that either leads to, or doesn’t lead to the undiscovered self.

It’s like walking with CHANGE, whereby CHANGE whispers in the breeze gentle suggestions that might be an aid to avoidance of the paths of over usage.

So BE WITH YOU.

Things may seem limiting right now. But know that within all of us, our inner guidance system is constantly navigating the ways forward that lead to the who we are not yet.

No one said it would be easy.

But, in the time of greatest challenge often is found the time of greatest possibility!

NOTE: This post is aligned towards THE REFLECTIVE LIGHT. The Light of Contemplation.

A Time To Be With You

Spiritual CoachingReflection is one of the most understated of the lights. A quiet light. An inward light.

Whereby being with YOU, brings you closer in to yourself, and where you are right now. These moments and times of reflection are valuable, because they allow us to assess which direction our life is going in, and make changes if we are drifting off track.

Reflection is like a conversation with ourselves, where we have permission to ask any question we like, and have the time and space to discover the answers.

Reflective time doesn’t always have to be long. It can be moments in the day when we reflect on the morning we have had. Like gathering all the best parts for safe keeping and discarding the rest.

So savour the permission we have to reflect, and the time to be with YOU!

The Five Fountains Meditation

This video aims to capture some of the character of Reflective Light.

In trying to transfer a sense of each of the 23 Lights, imagery plays an important part.

So, I hope you find the journey to the Island of Reflection soothing, calming and restful…

 

 

The Hidden Light!

What if within us, is an extraordinary amount of hidden light,

Light which is not yet switched on?

Which we call our potential.

Or Who We Are Not Yet.

Our task – to discover and switch on that hidden light!

The Five Fountains & The Reflective Light

This is an imagery based attempt to capture the spirit of the Reflective Light.

 

Imagine that there’s a moment when everyday life gets too much, with its routines and its sometimes overbearing nature.

The urge to get away is compelling. So you pack your bags with a few things, and head out away from the city and the throbbing milieu.

After an hour or so of travelling, the air starts to feel clearer.

And then you see the first signposts.

 

Reflection – A Time To Be With You

 

So you park the car and begin to walk. For when you reach the special environment of Reflection, it naturally causes you to slow down.

There’s a feeling of no rush. You don’t need to be anywhere else. Doing anything else. With anyone else.

 

One of the first things you notice as you walk into Reflection is the sounds.

It’s the gentle cascade of water. And it feels very soothing for the soul.

For Reflection is famous for its five fountains.

You take your shoes off as you approach the first of the five fountains.

 

1: This is the Fountain of Leaving Things Behind.

It’s colour is Pale Blue.

And as you sit next to the fountain, things which may have been bothering you start to feel unimportant.

Worries and anxieties drop away, as do stresses and concerns.

As the pale blue fountain washes away those things which you no longer need.

After sitting quietly by the fountain, there is a pull to walk slowly over the to second fountain.

 

2: This is the fountain of Calmness and Settlement

And it’s light is Pale Yellow.

Sitting by this gentle cascade of water, causes a removal of any demand or hardness upon oneself.

Demands to be perfect. Demands to meet the approval of others. Demands to do.

In the pale yellow light, there is an increasing empathy within oneself, about oneself, and is very very settling.

There is no rush to leave this second fountain. Abiding here is good.

But after a while, there comes the moment, when the third fountain beckons.

 

3: This is the Fountain of Clarity and Understanding

It’s colour is White

As you sit by the gentle cascade of this fountain, it starts to bring clarity to oneself, about the habits, patterns and mindsets that cause certain things to happen.

Patterns that may not necessarily serve us well. And the ones that do.

It’s like having a mirror held up to oneself saying, this is the truth about you. Not harshly so. But gently. Softly. Caringly.

For Do No Harm is one of the core values of Reflection.

This middle of the fountains, allows a clear insight into the past, and greater clarity about the future. And causes a glow within, as you see a greater truth about yourself.

And it’s with a spring in your step as you move towards the fourth fountain.

 

4: The Fountain of Renewal

And it’s colour is Pale Pink.

This fountain is energizing. Like all the cells in the body being bathed in life force.

It brings a feeling of confidence and trust in oneself.

Making you feel like life has begun again inside of oneself. Fortifying your strengths. Diminishing your weaknesses.

It causes you to want to dance and the fifth fountain beckons you over.

 

5: This is the Fountain of New Possibility and it’s colour is Pale Green.

Life now looks and feels very different. This fountain feels like it is littering the path of your future with gemstones for when you might need them.

It allows you to believe that the future will not in anyway resemble the past. And it is very uplifting indeed.

So feeling very different to when you arrived in Reflection, it’s time to slowly make your way home.

Knowing that you can return here at any time.

To

  • Leave things from the past behind
  • Find settlement
  • Understand oneself better
  • Rebuild trust and confidence
  • And reset the north star

 

So thank you for visiting Reflection and the Five Fountains. Come and see us again.
