AOL Bulletin – 17th June 2015 – Silence is the Key

The aim of this week’s newsletter is to remind us to take time to upgrade.

FYI – Find Happiness through Silence

The Power of Going Nowhere:  Want to be Happy, Slow Down.

Pico IyerPico Iyer is a travel writer.  He started travelling internationally to go to boarding school at a very early age and the more he travelled the more he loved it eventually merging his love for travel with a need to support himself ( and his family) financially.  Most of us would be happy there.  Passion and income combined, perfect!  As time passed, he became aware that the place that he would most like to go was –  Nowhere!  Iyer takes us on his journey to become aware of what comes with taking time for stillness. In our world of constant movement and distraction, he says it is essential to find steps to take back a few minutes out of every day, or a few days out of every season so that we can travel within to find the stillness and silence that is available to all of us.   Click here to view the TEDTalk  (just over 15mins)

Academy of Light LogoIn and Around the Academy

With Rosemary Butterworth

Hi Everyone, welcome to another week at the Academy.  On Monday Night Tracie and Russell magnificently led us through a Soul Retrieval Night and so much more.  The ceremony not only helped people, animals and fish cross over but we given the opportunity to collect and heal our own soul fragments that we had left behind in this life or previous lives.  Russell performed an empowering ceremony building and strengthening Mother Earth’s chakra system and later chanelled the answers to questions.  All in all it was a night where you could give, receive and empower yourself.  Thank you so much Tracie and Russell.

This week I have been given words of advice from the Ascended Masters.  They say there is an immediate need for us to ‘upgrade’ all of our bodies for those who are ready to move their energy to the 5th dimension   So I have been looking at simple ways we can do this.  This ‘upgrade’ is mandantory for all those who want to go to the Light, be Light and Love.  There is no choice, it is either do it or stay in this world as it is.  Pico Iyer says it all (in the interview “…“change your life” and you repaint your car rather than re-wire the engine.”  See more from Pico Iyer in FYI.

As most of you will know, I have always been interested in the Mental Body for I know our thoughts keep us locked into the 3rd dimension, a world of pain and suffering – and because of that Sai Baba helped me write How to Move Forward – Leave your Thoughts Behind I believe that to read a page of this daily will really help you upgrade the Mental Body which leaves us with what to do with the Spiritual, Emotional, Etheric, and Physical.

Spiritual –  Pray,  chant, meditate – in other words find the stillness inside you each day.

Emotional – Watch, just watch your emotions and stay out of your stories – watch your desire to play ‘poor me’.  Watching and observing dissolves negativity and brings balance back into your emotional body.

Etheric – Bring the Light from the Spiritual Sun down each day and stand in it like you are in a waterfall and ask the Light to clean and clear your Etheric Body.

Physical – Exercise daily, breathe in the sunshine, keep it clean (clear any anger and negative emotion), eat fresh food.  Practice mindfulness throughout the day while attending to duties.

On another note, let us know if we are meeting your needs to upgrade.  Is there something we could present, or write about, are there any questions that you would like answered – we could have a Spiritual QandA?  I was asked the other week, if as a psychic do I ever see ‘bad’ things.  I suppose it all depends what the questioner meant by ‘bad’.  I have seen a mud slide coming down the mountain covering a whole village about 6 weeks before it happened, but if she meant demons the answer is no.  So are the questions that we can answer for you, if so let us know by email.

Next Monday Night is proving to be amazing, write it on your calendar in red and don’t miss it.

Looking forward to seeing you.  Blessings, Rosemary.

Thought Of The Week

You are the sky. Everything else – it’s just the weather.

Affirmation – INVOCATION TO TRANQUILITY ~ by Holy Lady Nina

I go within
And open the petals of the Crystal Lotus.
I go within
And as the Lotus blooms
My mind, my body, and emotions quiet.
As my consciousness steps
Into the center of the Lotus, I become tranquil with Who I AM.
I flow with the serenity of Spirit.
As I sit within the Lotus,
I know the Buddha that is Myself.

Pink RoseThis beautiful invocation has come from the Star Seed Highway site and the post The Shekinah, Holy Lady Nina- First Lady of the Pleiades.  To find out about The Shekinah and Lady Nina click here.

Health –  Walk Among The Trees

Trees by Terri Walking among trees makes us more relaxed, nicer people.

In a post on Mother Nature Network they quote study findings indicating  lower levels of cortisol,  lower blood pressure and pulse rate in participants.  Other findings show immune systems were boosted and much more.

Obviously, we would be walking/exercising whilst out in the forest surroundings so that would help all those findings but there is no doubt that we have a chemical reaction to the forest environment.

So go out and walk in nature.  Find a tree lined street or a park if you cannot get to a forest or bush setting often.  Do not ignore the natural assistance that is ready for the taking.  Use all of your senses.  Taste and smell the air, feel the branches and leaves, hear them rustling in the breeze and take in all of the colours and textures that nature supplies. 

If all else fails watch the 3minute YouTube in FYI and go on your own journey.
