Nurturing your own spirit with Nature medicine.

Nurturing your own spirit & self with Nature medicine.
I woke up feeling a little down, having gone to bed over thinking and worrying about concerns and problems in my life. I got up and sat in my mediation nest, a beautiful, nurturing soft place of cushions and a warm, quiet blanket.
During my mediation I realised I had fallen back in the human condition of allowing my mind to focus and dance with my problems - allowing it to take me to places of worry and negative emotions, rather than appreciating all the really great things I also have in my life.
My glass was fast becoming half empty, rather than half full.
I felt into my heart and I felt it was shutting down, by perceived hurt, criticism, sorrow. We all have times in our lives that seem hard. Grief can kick in and whilst it’s good to feel into these times & honor them, we can also allow them to take us over.
So I decided I needed that which I know best helps me:
to reopen my heart to seeing the sunshine rather then focusing on the shade.

Vastu & Chess: The Game of Existence
October 10, 2017
Vastu & Chess: The game of existence.
The game of Chess is an very ancient game with connections deeply rooted in the Vedic tradition of Vastu and the Vastu mandala grid of squares, most often simplified down to a 8 x 8 or 9x 9 squares held within a square grid of one over aching square.
The chess board of eight x eight squares represent the meta-field of non-physical existence, as opposed to nine x nine squares which infers the physical field in which we are mostly conscious. So Chess is about what has created and is happening in the greater universe, its not a simple war game, about soldiers. Its deeper more mysterious the we we image. I think I and many of us have felt this when we play, its ancientness it’s so much more than a game.
Originally before the pieces were ascribed as Kings & Queens, knights and bishops, the pieces were hierarchical Devas, angelic energetic creatrix beings, still present and accessible in parallel universes today and they represented and still do, the forces of light. The black pieces are the Asura's or some call demons, although they not evil demons as such.

Iím a temple traveler. Itís what I love to do.

I’m a temple traveler. It’s what I love to do.
I sometimes feel like I’m some sort of questing Indiana Jones, but my gold is not physical treasure it’s exploring and trying to comprehend the sacred vibration, resonance and deep symbolism of these places.
I have traveled to many parts of the world, not all (not yet anyway) on a quest to visit sacred temples, and then explore them. I can not help but then analyze, these most sacred and energetic of human and divine places. It is my personal quest to understand the core, archetypal needs of humanity around space and place.
I have explored many temples and temple complexes around the world, including those in countries such as India, Cambodia, Japan, Indonesia, Vietnam, the Middle East, Pakistan, Turkey, Europe and Britain. Many of them iconographic & famous ones, such as: Angkor Wat in Cambodia, Mahabalipuram in India, My Son in Vietnam & Palmyra in Syria, just to name a few of the sacred buildings around the world I have known.
However one, more than any, stands out as extraordinary beyond all others.
The Ancient Vedic Temple of Madurai in central Southern India.
Madurai, the oldest continuously operational temple...

Space Clearing the ghosts of energies past

Space Clearing the ghosts of energies past. by Anthony Ashworth
This article was origainlly published in Issue Magazine.
I had a sickening feeling in my gut, like when you are confronted with the smell of something really spoiled & rotten, your nose tells you to be aware, be careful, something’s toxic, something’s off.
I gagged then burped & coughed “this place feels awful” I said to myself. But there was no physical "off" smell, nothing was rotten or off, or was there?
This was a clients apartment they had rented out, bad tenants with bad vibes, it felt shabby & unkempt yes, but the worst of it was the feeling the place had, just pure bad, sad feeling in the air &coming out of the very walls. You would think I would have gotten used to this by now, I had been clearing & cleansing other peoples homes for many years. Oh well just another day of Space Clearing.
My client had gotten me in to Space Clear both their home & an investment apartment they were having a lot of trouble with, the latest tenants were again bad tenants, as were the ones before them &...
