Morning Views

Beautiful blue skies yesterday morning drew me along new paths.

I found myself along a dried up creek.

Where the last of the water had frowen 

in beautiful patterns.

Coming back out into the light


to more delights 

everywhere I turn

Today it's a snow storm as I walked to breakfast in the dark. I cant wait for morning light to see  Sedona in the snow.

Walking to the Retreat

Amazing light this morning.

The Red Rocks seemed so dramatic !

There is a wonderful sense of space, a strong feeling of how vast our sky is.

I love how the buildings all blend into the landscape.

Each corner I turn there is a virw to inspire.

And enchant, this is the driveway to the Creative Life Center where our Retreat takes place. 
I can't imagine a more inspiring setting for the work.

Breakfast In Sedona

It is great to be back here again. I'm all set for lots more releasing. The retreat begins this evening so I have today to hike and soak up the amazing Red Rock views.

But must breakfast first and recharge my battery from yesterday's journey.

Clear blue skies for as far as I can see.

The winter colours make everything feel new to me.

So Grateful for this opportunity many Thanks to all who support and make this work possible.

Back To Sedona

Heathrow Airport is buzzing with comming and goings.
I'm heading back to Sedona for more Releasing with Hale Dwoskin.
I am amazed at all that has shifted in my life since the Retreat last May and I am looking forward to Letting Go of more limiting beliefs. This is a great time of year to take time out and review, renew, and revitalise.
I feel so fortunate to be able to make this journey. It feels magical to be in Heathrow and know that by tonight I'll be in Arizona with it's Cacti, Red Rocks and wide open plains. 

I'm filled with curiosity and excitement for the adventure ahead.  This makes up for the anxiety about all the checks, the lack of sleep last night snd the shyness about meeting new people. 
I'm often 'in control' or at least it feels that way when I'm the one running the class or giving the session. It feels different to be on the other side of the 'fence'. 
It is good to face those fears and be reminded of that vulnrable first day feeling.
No boubt there will be lots more photos of Sedona and the surrounding space. 
Looking forward to sharing here.

A Christmas Childhood - Patrick Kavanagh

One side of the potato-pits was white with frost –
How wonderful that was, how wonderful!
And when we put our ears to the paling-post
The music that came out was magical.

The light between the ricks of hay and straw
Was a hole in Heaven’s gable. An apple tree
With its December-glinting fruit we saw –
O you, Eve, were the world that tempted me.

To eat the knowledge that grew in clay
And death the germ within it! Now and then
I can remember something of the gay
Garden that was childhood’s. Again.

The tracks of cattle to a drinking-place,
A green stone lying sideways in a ditch,
Or any common sight, the transfigured face
Of a beauty that the world did not touch.

My father played the melodion
Outside at our gate;
There were stars in the morning east
And they danced to his music.

Across the wild bogs his melodion called
To Lennons and Callans.
As I pulled on my trousers in a hurry
I knew some strange thing had happened.

Outside in the cow-house my mother
Made the music of milking;
The light of her stable-lamp was a star
And the frost of Bethlehem made it twinkle.

A water-hen screeched in the bog,
Mass-going feet
Crunched the wafer-ice on the pot-holes,
Somebody wistfully twisted the bellows wheel.

My child poet picked out the letters
On the grey stone,
In silver the wonder of a Christmas townland,
The winking glitter of a frosty dawn.

Cassiopeia was over
Cassidy’s hanging hill,
I looked and three whin bushes rode across
The horizon — the Three Wise Kings.

And old man passing said:
‘Can’t he make it talk –
The melodion.’ I hid in the doorway
And tightened the belt of my box-pleated coat.

I nicked six nicks on the door-post
With my penknife’s big blade –
there was a little one for cutting tobacco.
And I was six Christmases of age.

My father played the melodion,
My mother milked the cows,
And I had a prayer like a white rose pinned
On the Virgin Mary’s blouse.

The Amazing Life Of Neil Baldwin

Listening to the amazing stories told by Neil Baldwin, you'd be forgiven for thinking that he must have a vivid imagination but they are all true. Such an uplifting inspiring and loving life story. If seeing real people's amazing ability to overcome obstacles inspires you , then this is a Movie for you. I promise you will laugh and maybe even cry a little but most of all you will be inspired and energised by the LOVE that shines through Neil's life.

The Shortest Day




  The Shortest Day by Susan Cooper

      So the shortest day came, and the year died,
      And everywhere down the centuries of the snow-white world
      Came people singing, dancing,
      To drive the dark away.
      They lighted candles in the winter trees;
      They hung their homes with evergreen;
      They burned beseeching fires all night long
      To keep the year alive,
      And when the new year's sunshine blazed awake
      They shouted, reveling.
      Through all the frosty ages you can hear them
      Echoing behind us - Listen!!
      All the long echoes sing the same delight,
      This shortest day,
      As promise wakens in the sleeping land:
      They carol, fest, give thanks,
      And dearly love their friends,
      And hope for peace.
      And so do we, here, now,
      This year and every year.
      Welcome Yule!!

Here is a link to last year's Winter  Solstice Greetings

Nourishing The Soul

At this time when rich food surrounds us and our days are full of 'doing' Rumi's wisdom can help to nourish our souls. This poem is full of welcome, welcome to the emotions we tend to supress and avoid. To me it is a perfect compliment to Lester's teaching.

                                          The Guest House

                             This being human is a guest house.
                             Every morning a new arrival.

                            A joy, a depression, a meanness,
                            some momentary awareness comes
                            as an unexpected visitor.

                            Welcome and entertain them all!
                            Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
                            who violently sweep your house
                            empty of its furniture,
                            still, treat each guest honourably.
                            He may be clearing you out
                            for some new delight.

                           The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
                            meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.

                           Be grateful for whatever comes.
                           because each has been sent
                           as a guide from beyond.

                                            - Jelaluddin Rumi,

                                 translation by Coleman Barks

How To Shift Relationships And Have More Fun

One of the best ways I know of for lifting my mood is to make an appreciation list. I promise that if you do this exercise you will be delighted by how you feel in just a few minutes.

To do this exercise, think of someone who is a positive influence in your life.

Write down their name.

Now, list 15 things you appreciate about this person. The first few come easily but persist and dig deep until you find 15. They don't all have to be huge ( you could appreciate that they never make you feel bad for being late! ). Once you push through the slump ideas will come quickly. According to medical psychologist Dan Baker, you will also feel your mood improving as your neocortex tells your brain to focus on appreciation. This moves activity from the fearful-reptile zones of your brain and triggers the secretion of serotonin, causing feelings of joy.

If you feel inclined you can read the list to the person, I have done this and loved the experience.

Now if you found that exercise good move up to the next level which s even more Powerful !

Do the 'appreciation list' focusing on someone you don't like very much.

And if you really want to change your life experience do it yet again focusing on someone you really dislike.
You will find that doing the exercise on people you don't like very much is really powerful in shifting your interactions in subtle ways that that will surprise and delight you.

I think these exercises are great to do at any time, however at Christmas time we often 'have' to meet with people who we might prefer to avoid. By doing these exercises before a party or a meeting you can find things you like about everyone and open yourself to a whole new experience with people who you previously found difficult.

Figure 8 Practice

Figure 8 Practice from ann on Vimeo.

Here is the figure 8 exercise we worked on at last night's class. This is a wonderful exercise developed by John Kells. I learned this exercise ( and most of my T'ai Chi ) from John's student Steven Moore. Steven shared his knowledge and time so generously I will always be in his debt for all he taught me. So I dedicate this exercise to him in Love and Thanks.

The Full Reconnection

I know this is a big change of tempo from yesterday's Santa Special but I am having a lot of enquiries about Full Reconnection at the moment so I thought I'd share little about the process and some  backround information.
 The full Reconnection is a process that happens over two sessions when the Reconnective practitoner connects lines and points on your body. This is a once in a lifetime powerful process and must be completed within three days.
 I have written about my own Reconnection and  how I felt it influenced me a few years ago and it is interesting that it is really on my mind again at this time. Maybe it is the approach of the winter Solstice that powerfull time of change and connection to the Sun that is bringing this powerful process so much to the foreground of my attention. Also one of my students has just returned from training with the International Accademy Of Consciousness in London and told me how her experiences there were so similar to her experience during Reconnection.
Some how this seems to be a strong time of Reconnection.  I hope you enjoy Doug de Vito's article that gives some more insights into Reconnection and Axiotonal Lines that I have posted below.

From Alex Grey's Book  'The Sacred Mirrors' 

There are grid lines on the Earth, there are grid lines in the Universe and there are grid lines on your body. Somehow we can reconnect or bring our grid lines system into a stronger connection with the Universe - we can actually step forward into a new level of our Selves - a completely new level of healing, physically, emotionally, mentally; we can evolve as an ongoing process as we move forward.


One of the first books that started to talk about the Axiotonal Lines was "The Book of Knowledge - The Keys of Enoch" by J.J. Hurtak (1973). Other books have talked about the lay lines of the Earth, and the systems of grid lines on the Solar System and the Milky-Way

In chapter 3.1.7 -page 523- of "The Keys of Enoch" it says: There is this work within all of our bodies, a pattern of unique vibration levels, and our bodies control all of their renewing functions through something called Meridian Axiotonal Lines and these Axiotonal Lines are not limited, i.e. they do not end at our physical bodies but they are open-ended; they actually extend out past our body, they can connect us more fully into the Universe. When Man kind can discover the connection between his own life´s space and the Axiotonal grids, Mankind will step into a whole new level of super science known as medical astronomy. Medical astronomy refers to healing on all levels, mind, body, spirit, and talks about moving into proper formation of our limbs and talks about stepping forward into a new level of conscious interaction with the Universe. The Axial lines being the grid lines of the Universe, are part of a higher dimensional system which combine colours and sound, light and information. Our higher Self brings in this basic energy and information and it renews every function of our body, our human body, our evolutionary body, it works on every level, cells, DNA, brain, emotion etc. Once we start to do this on an ongoing basis, the grids will allow us to exchange genetic information, and all information that flow into our cells and into our proper formation. We can heal from disease, we can regenerate limbs and organs, we can move forward with the grounding of light and information into our cells.
Many people ask what we are reconnecting to? We are reconnecting to our Self and the Universe and the potential, and how do we know when we are done? We don´t. Its an ongoing process, its an ongoing experience.

"Under present biological conditions, evolutionary development and living bodies from earliest inception follows unisyal semi-conductivity as a living parasel of electric matrix, through stages which permit permanent basic tissues Gaia satellite and swarm cells to be supportive to the neurones on the human system, where the primary source is electrical". (excerpt from The Keys of Enoch)

When the Axiatonal Alignment is done on your body the frequencies are manifested and a huge amount of light and information start to be shared. There are Keys that are being unlocked and somehow by working with the frequencies and taking the experience off the body, more light and information come through. It said: when Mankind can discover the connection between their bodies and these open-ended connections, they can step into a whole new level of healing.

When J.J. Hurtak talked in Canada at the "The Total Health Conference" in 2002 about a vision - a mind blowing vision of what mankind can step into, what the possibilities are like when we can actually consciously access the power of our brains - the full information potential in our cells and our DNA and how we can more consciously interact with the Universe, and what miracles may be a part of our lives, when we can do that.
In chapter 3.1.4. -page 486- it says: "Through a projection of light and information, coming from the recorder cell, individuals can be reconnected with their perfect Blueprint (their Adam Cadmon)."
Individuals can get an additional high frequency resonance and high frequency vibration and somehow working with this vibration they can use and step into and gain paranormal gifts, like healing others and to heal ourselves - and that we can help to create miracular change. We can help to create the way cells operate, we can change, we can modify that outside the realm of space and time. It says that somehow when we work with these vibrations we will transcend dimensions.
