An Exercise in the Art of Muchness

When We Step into Our Authenticity, Suffering Falls Away

Be Your Truth, Be a Vessel of Love

Be Your Truth, Be Your Eternal Love

A student sat week after week in the presence of his teacher, thinking; “my word if only I could take her home and make love with her, wow what a body.” Week after week he sat utterly transfixed until that was and to his utter astonishment too. The teacher asked him to sit with her. She then asked him: “so what is it that you seek in your secret and deep inner dialogue?”. The student replied; “I seek to take you home with me and to make love to you.” The teacher then asked; “is that a noble quest or simply a quest driven by your ego? However and before you answer that question let me ask you to ponder this. Let’s say I were to agree to you making love to me I would of course require you to prove your worth first.” The student then replied; “yes, yes I’d agree to that just tell me what I need to do and I will and would agree to do anything you asked of me.” The teacher then looked deep into the student eyes and said only this; “go out into the world and create something that will impress me.” The student in great excitement agreed and in a great hurry set out upon his quest. Some months later the student sort out the teacher and asked her to come look at what he’d created, taking her to a great tower of stones that one could see from miles around. “Asking what do you think teacher is that not impressive what I’ve created and would you agree to lay with me now?” The teacher smiled and said; “indeed your labours have been impressive, however there’s no evidence of any thought gone into what you’ve created, therein; you’ve simply built a pointless symbol with no practical use or application. As such I will not lay with you until I’m impressed with what you’ve created.” The student with head held low and all thoughts of anticipation quashed kicked out at his pile of stones in dismay and began throwing them far and wide in all his anger. And all amidst a searing thought that screamed and screamed deep within his chattering mind that it’s all been a complete waste of time, “give it some thought, just what is she on about, no thought, I never stop thinking, in fact; thinking is all I seem to do.”

After much throwing of stones the student began to sense that where his stones had fallen he’d inadvertently began building walls. Eureka he thought, I will build the most impressive castle anyone’s ever built and for sure when my teacher gazes upon it she will fall headlong into my arms and bed. Many years did the student labour on his castle and it was a most impressive castle indeed, running water and central heating were all considered in his great scheme. At the point he’d decorated the last room he once again sort out his teacher and asked her to come look at what he’d created, taking her to his great castle that one could see from miles around. “Asking what do you think teacher is that not impressive and would you agree to lay with me now?” The teacher smiled and said; “indeed your labours have been impressive, however there’s no evidence of any soul within your building and as such this is a hollow, dark and barren place. Therein; I will not lay with you until I’m impressed with what you’ve created.” The student with head held low and all thoughts of anticipation quashed yet again kicked out at his castle labours and began pulling his castle down stone by stone, each ripping the skin clean from his hands. Indeed pain that danced through; every vibration of his being.

Many years did the student toil in pulling his castle down until he found himself sitting completely exhausted and all alone on the ground where the castle once stood. Then one day wolf came along and said; “hey you look like you could do with a friend, allow me to live with you and I will be loyal and do my very best to keep us both fed and safe.” By now the student was no longer a vibrant young man and was wise enough to realise that he did crave some form of companionship, so he agreed and the wolf and the man set up home together and their bond became and was most unshakable. Over time lion shared his courage with the student, owl shared his wisdom, Mother Earth shared her abundance, bear shared his power and resilience, eagle shared his vision, heron shared the art of seeing through distortion. Honey bee shared how to express his sexuality, horse showed him how to move swiftly, crow shared with him life’s mysteries and the arts of magic, buffalo shared with him the need to honour his sacred path and snake shared with him how best to evolve and leave the past behind. In fact the student lived in harmony with all things and all beings, and became accomplished and at ease with many things, indeed such was his inner peace that the only constant in his life was the unrelenting grace that is continual unfolding of deep inner change. Such that as the seasons came and went he remained grateful at all times that he was blessed enough to be a witness of and to such impressive and abundant spectacles. So much so that as the years rolled by and he effortlessly merged into his greying years, he completely forgot about his teacher and all his former labours.

Year upon year the student learned more about himself, more about his animal friends, more elemental knowledge and more earth mother and father sky wisdoms. Then one clear winters night as wolf howled in delight at the bright full moon, the students teacher arose from the flames of the fire before them and walked towards the student with not a stitch of clothing upon her body. Smiling she walked towards the student and said only this; “hello student, it’s been some time since we last met and had a chat, do you like what you see and would you like to lay with me?” The student arose from the earth and walked silently towards his teacher and covering her naked body with a blanket said only this; “good to see you teacher, please come and sit with us.” And sit they did amidst the crackling flames and balancing melody of wolfs ancient song, indeed they sat all through the night and not a word was exchanged. As dawn began to break the teacher turned back towards the student and drawing in deeply and gently breathing out said only this; “isn’t it majestic all the splendour you’ve created?” Before letting slip her blanket and upon rising revealing her true energetic form in that she was the embodiment of a myriad of stars and unfathomable galaxies and in essence the source of exponential potential. She then held out her hands and the student rose to his feet too and as they merged into the; “one that is wholeness”, all time stood still and not a sound could be heard. Save only for a whisper on the wind twinkling, tickling and gently caressing the sun kissed dazzling pearls of crystalline dew that graced the morning reverie. Each vibrating eloquently with angelic acclaim; “it’s time, it’s time, it’s time beacon of light for you to teach the wisdom you’ve learned, for you have reconnected with the art of muchness.”

The Gift in All Journeys is the Wisdom Gained in Understanding

This post whilst brewing for many, many months was crystallised in the moment the result of a generous and unsolicited email that I received as I was reintegrating myself after a highly draining and intensive healing and clearing retreat. Therein I unreservedly thank the senders of that email for their generosity of soul and wish them well too on all their own personal; healing, learning and wisdom distillation journeys. That said and for sure I’m no longer the man who started writing this blog many years ago, for heavens I’ve really changed and I am most grateful for those changes. Because; I’ve been told many times in this my current mortality that; “I can’t do this and I shouldn’t do that and above all things there’s nothing that “they” can do to help me”. Nevertheless and time after time amidst my unrelenting darkness I ignored such complete and utter nonsense, for not to do so would have resulted in my stagnation and premature expiry. Therein; its important to note that we alone ultimately choose just how we will live out our mortality. We can choose to stay asleep and grub around in the darkness, or we can reach for the light and evolve. Well hard though it’s often been I’ve always reached for the light, for my soul craved healing and the grace in vibrational alignment, for alignment is the god force within all. Therein; moving back into vibrational alignment is the process of healing ones body, clearing ones mind and freeing ones soul. A sublimely eloquent and synergistic coming together, with one central goal; “to remove from ones being all forms of dis-ease”. In essence a simple, yet timeless alchemistic process, that really has no beginnings and certainly no endings, for we are eternal, we are one and anything and everything. That said; there is a critical point in all our awakening journeys when all things change and forever and it’s what I myself call the cross over point. Indeed the point where nothing really matters anymore. Birthdays come and go, major sporting events come and go, festivals, festive seasons and festivities come ago and their significance has no significance in our lives anymore. It’s that place where we become as the great Stuart Wilde coined “fringe dwellers”. A place free of all the nonsense of our former domestications and a place that pays no attention to the demands of the puerile or indeed fast asleep tick tock mentality. Indeed a place that as we fall into its vortex of endless possibilities, that’s the very point that we’re able to realise anything and everything. No preconditions or anything at all, simply self love and universal love in all their majesty and deep, deep understanding.

Amen

Raphael’s Legacy – One Mans Battle For The Right To Life…!

An Exercise in Journeys Ending

One Journey Ends, Another One Begins, Such is Eternal Healing

I Am That, I Am

I Am That, I Am

Its a gloriously crisp and sunny day in the heart of the Scottish Borders today and nature is singing, “spring is on its way”. That said; I too am feeling spring like for I know that I’m walking away from a thirty year dark winter. Indeed the end of a most dramatic, traumatic and life changing healing journey, to be replaced by a new healing, learning and clearing journey. That said and just over 25 years ago amidst my own and seemingly insurmountable darkness, I sat and chatted with my mentor of that time chief petty officer SB. A remarkable man who’d transformed his own inner knowings. Setting the scene; we met to discuss how I was doing after a period of deep introspection the result of his guidance on matters relating to self liberation and supportive reading. Therein; SB enquired where I was now at? My reply; “I’m sitting on a train inside a sleepy little train station, I have no idea where I’m going but I’m excited by the prospect of the journey that’s about to unfold”. Little did I know then that that journey would thrust me into the alchemistic fires of calcination, dissolution, separation, conjunction, fermentation, distillation and coagulation consuming almost 80% of my current mortality. Year after year breaking me down and stripping away that which did not serve my higher self. Which in essence was the most painful and brutalising nihilism journey that I could possibly undertake. All part of my own gut wrenching hero’s journey, a journey which frankly changed all things and forever, for when all things change, we change with them. Indeed that very point when I truly understood self love, selfless love and unconditional love and the I am that I am. That very point where the glow of my soul, eclipsed all my mortal woes and they all fell away like autumn leaves in a stiff breeze. Indeed that point where I truly understood and wholeheartedly acknowledged for the first time in my mortality, that I am who I am not because of all the suffering and pain I’ve endured. But because I’m an instinctive and courageous; multidimensional thinker and above all things; a divine and timeless spiritual being as we all are too.

The Alchemist, Shaman and Shamanic Self Healer Within

Many years on and with much personal insight, wisdom and understanding gathered along the way, I realised several months ago that my current healing journey was coming to an end and that I was on the cusp of a brand new healing journey. Perhaps that’s why I committed to writing my numerous “an exercise in – posts”, all part of documenting my own personal healing and releasing, who knows? All I know is that when spirit nudges resistance is futile and I’ve embraced that energetic flow wholeheartedly and for some considerable time now. That said and earlier this week I was having a catch up with my shamanic mentor and as ever we discussed that most pertinent to my healing and clearing. Therein and one of the things we discussed was that I felt no inclination to write anymore. Smiling she replied; “that’s very normal for soul journeys like yours, for often I’ve observed that those old souls committed to mastering the magician and warrior that resides deep within them, all to often and for no apparent reason simply evaporate into the ether”. Followed by; “and that’s really alright Barry, for as you’ve already indicated that journey is over”. Now of course and yes as my mentor stated it really is alright, but for me, well I felt sort of uneasy with the apparent lack of closure, because I believe closure always brings with it greater overall healing and healing is the greatest gift on this planet.

Therein and with that state of unease, perhaps heightened by a stream of email enquiries in recent weeks asking; “why no writing and am I okay?” I was compelled to write this “journeys ending” post today. For it was important that I articulated that all was indeed well and that the absence of new posts simply reflected my current journeys ending. Therein its important that I articulate that I will be writing one final post after this journeys ending post and that post will be called An Exercise in The Art of Muchness. However this blog will remain active for a little while and there’s a very real possibility that I will refine certain posts. That said and why no more posts my followers and readers may rightfully ask? Well my Raphael’s Legacy healing journey has reached its conclusion and I believe that once you’ve read my post “An Exercise in The Art of Muchness” you’ll understand that all future writings and presentations will take on subtly different topics. Therein; as and when the timing is right I will post a link on my home page to any new blog or indeed YouTube presentations that I create in the coming months and years.

In the interim period I’d like to extend my grateful thanks to all My Raphael’s Legacy blog readers and followers one and all for the warmth of your company during my often testing journey. Namaste

An Exercise in Self Acknowledgement

To Journey into Our Glory Requires Acknowledgement of Our True Potential

You Can Always Change Your Story

You Can Always Change Your Story

Many times on my journey the more inquisitive have asked; “how do you know so much about so many things Barry and where did you learn so much?” My answer; “I know very little, yet what I do know was forged upon the anvil of pain all part of my own eternal healing journey. A timeless process that implores all evolving souls to ignore all of the nonsense and all of the dogma that serves only to impoverish our souls evolution. Now and if that’s knowing a lot or equally perceived as wisdom so be it. However and just so you know its all been hard earned, albeit worth all the pain, isolation and soul searching. For my soul saw no glory in the psychosis of patriarchal stagnation and thats why I always have and always will walk my own talk, because that was and is part of my own [ shamanic healing process ] Now the truth is any soul can embark upon a healing journey such as mine, indeed a process that begins with self love and inner knowing. However and just so you know; that is a process which strips away all that does not serve our higher self, a painful journey along the [ road of bones ], indeed a process where self acknowledgement must always sit resplendent. And why? Well ultimately and without self acknowledge, there can be no self love and without self love there can be no soul based evolution and certainly no personal growth or indeed glory. Therein; self acknowledgment is an essential component of walking into and owning our personal power, affording us the grace to realise our timeless and true potential”. Namaste

An Exercise in Crisis, Laughter & Change

The Answers to Our Many Questions, Reside Deep Within Our Very Being

Healing is Self Love

Healing is Self Love

I was invited in for a chat with the managing director of a technical services company some time ago, where he looped two paradoxical loops of consternation. Hilarious as it may sound; he didn’t want to do what he was doing anymore and yet if he could only find the right people he’d be the MD of the biggest technical services company in the UK. After perhaps 30 minutes of this looping and looping, I smiled at him and simply said; “David, (not his real name) when you’re ready to start listening give me a nod. However in the interim period I’m just going to allow you the space to ramble on whilst I go and make myself a cup of tea”. At which point and in a state of annoyance he said “I’m not rambling I’m telling you precisely what the state of play is”. I simply smiled and said; “David you’re rambling, however if you’d like to ask me a question, go for it, alternatively if you’d like to join me in a cup of tea feel free”. Agitation would be a good description now; “hang on, who’s in charge here; me or you?” I smiled again and said; “I have absolutely no control over you and you have absolutely no control over me, so I guess we’re in a collective state of anarchy or free will, depending upon which way you choose to look at it”. The guy then fiddled with his tie, his crotch and his mobile phone and then said; “errrrrrrr go on then maybe you’re right let’s have a cup of tea, I’m just feeling a bit stressed, forgive me, I didn’t mean to be so rude. It’s just that I’m so frazzled and look at you, you’re so bloody mellow and I don’t get it”. My reply; “chill dude, your focus is in the wrong place for now, that’s all”. At which point we walked silently towards the office refectory. Once we’d broken through the ice of our tea break “time out” the guy then looked at me and said; “nope I just don’t get it Baz”, little bit of huffing and puffing followed by; “you were once such a great engineer and one of the most astute, passionate and highly focused business strategists and technical executives I’d ever met. So how did a nice guy like you end up giving all that up to become a bloody shaman? I mean to say; what the bloody hell is a shaman and a bloody shamanic business consultant when they’re in town?” At which point I nearly wet myself with laughter, which broke down his defensive prejudices even further and he broke into laughter too. Therein and after a few minutes taking the micky out of both myself and of course his question I answered in the only way a shaman could i.e. “I’m a shaman because that is my journey, a journey that allows me to live in my power. I like you reached that point of crisis where I had the choice. Do I choose renewal through personal growth or self destruction through stagnation?” Well I chose renewal because stagnation wasn’t an option for me, as such; I chose to walk away from that which was [ killing me ] an easy choice, yet difficult path to walk at times.

The guy looked at me and said; “tell me more, tell me more, because you’re right I’m in a state of crisis but I can’t tell anyone because they’ll think I’m mad”. I smiled and said; “are you mad?” The guy said; “no I’m not mad I’m just sick of doing what I do”. “Well then; that’s your answer and only you can change direction, my advice is relax, take your time and allow yourself the grace to flow”. There was an earth shattering silence and the the guy said; “we really must do this again”, my reply; “yes we must, but first you must stop beating yourself up and looking for answers from external sources, for the answer to your every question rests firmly within you”. A little more silence and then closure via some incidental chatter and of course a deeper realisation within us both, that; crisis is simply an opportunity for change, so it was, so it is and so it will always be. Namaste

Authors Concluding Notes

It’s not so unusual to meet people at this time who are awakening and feeling ill at ease with that state of being. It’s all very normal and all part of the unity conscious process of vibrational alignment and awareness that planet earth is currently undergoing. Its that point where spirit nudges us and where we’re finally able to step through the mirror of projection and realise the wonder that exists in freedom. At which point we truly understand that freedom is not a moment in time, neither is it something that can be bought. It’s simply the point of abstract abstraction where anything and everything are possible. For freedom is a place of deep inner grace, a universal gift which requires none of the trappings of mortality to underwrite it’s power and glory. It is a way of being, seeing and feeling that simply understands, that; understanding is simply pure vibrational alignment and nothing more. Indeed that point when we know just who we really are and all the other detritus simply falls away, that point when we let go of all the fears that derive from our overt domestications and we embrace our timeless potential.

NB this is an article that I wrote last year, but I’ve tweaked it and re-blogged it today because it’s been read several times in recent weeks. Therein and as I too have been dealing with a very deep crisis of confidence in terms of my overall direction and understandings over the past few years, it felt fitting, that I reminded myself once again of the pivotal role of crisis, laughter and change in my own personal evolution.

Raphael’s Legacy – One Mans Battle For The Right To Life…!

An Exercise in Offering Collective Peace

Unconditional Love is a Measure of Our Power and Greatness

Healing is In Self Love

Healing is In Self Love

As a shaman I accept that there’s learning to be had in every situation and on every conceivable front too and that love is our only reason for being. Therein and even though I blogged this video at the start of last year. Such is the power and collective message in this video that I felt compelled to gently open 2014 by sharing its grace and majesty with you once again. For the conscious and subconscious acts of some souls really do exhibit an almost divine quality, indeed a quality that has the power to uplift all our souls and change our state of being and for ever. Therein; sit back, relax and enjoy this sublimely uplifting video and may it caress you, nourish you and fill you with deep inner peace. Because my hope for all souls is “may everyone enjoy well-being in 2014, may everyone enjoy peace, may everyone enjoy fullness, may everyone enjoy auspiciousness.” Namaste

An Exercise in Greater Understanding

Healing Begins With Self Love, Releasing; Greater Inner Peace

Healing is Self Love

Healing is Self Love

Well another brand new year is upon us all in what is of course a complete illusion. For all those who’ve awakened or indeed those who are in the process of awakening right now, understand, that we’re all one and eternal and that time is a complete irrelevancy. That said; I’ve been asked many times during my current mortality just what are the most powerful things I’ve learned on my own healing journey into remembering.

My reply; “well I’ve learned many things on my long healing journey and also remembered many things too, the most important of which is that I now have a clear understanding of who I really am, including the sublime grace in and of my own healing. For I am timeless like you and healing is not the product of insane, fundamentally flawed and morally bankrupt medical dogma, its much more robust, far more gracious and hence a truly liberating process. Because true healing begins with self love, is based upon sound medical science, imbues and exudes great personal understanding. Indeed its a divine process that can only culminate once the very necessary clearing of all self limiting energetic blocks from our entire being and timelines is undertaken. In essence; its a timeless and ageless [ alchemistic process ] as old as light itself. That’s precisely why I will always help or correct an enquiring soul or indeed a wise man at any stage of both theirs and my own healing journey for we understand and appreciate the grace bestowed upon our soul through the acquisition of great wisdom, for great wisdom is freedom”.

That said; “the second most important thing I’ve learned is never ever try to help or indeed correct a fool from their foolish ways, for the fool in the end always hates those who shine a light upon their foolishness. For in wisdom there is great healing and in healing there is always greater peace and greater peace begets unimaginable freedom. A state of being which the fool is far to foolish to embrace, for all fools choose to live out their foolishness amidst the baron lands of ignorance and fear. A landscape where wisdom and reason are always shunned and for good reason too, for the fools world is a world filled to overflowing with; self delusions, overt resentments and lots of poor me’s. Therein; a wiseman sees, understands and accepts the fool for what he is, for he knows not and knows not that he knows not is a fool and all one can do is love, yet shun him”.

Finally and probably the most important thing that I’ve learned is that; “there are some truly dreadful and truly evil alien life forms on this planet masquerading as mortals. Life forms that are pure dark energy and lacking in any tangible aspect of light about their being. Indeed life forms that are truly insane, truly malicious, capable of the most horrendously cruel acts and who lack any form of decency. Life forms that are referred to as sociopaths by our medical world who appear completely oblivious to those evil aliens true origin. Therein; hard has been my learning around such utter monsters, yet wise am I now when I spot one from a hundred yards. Because I’ve learned and in the most brutal fashion possible that you can’t heal, can’t inspire evolution and you certainly can’t have a healthy relationship or life with or where a sociopath is present. For they are self obsessed and completely self serving, therein they have no visible vibration and are completely lacking in all that which we should care to hold dear. That’s precisely why I will remain forever committed to [ forewarning and hence forearming ] any vulnerable soul who is griped within a sociopaths grasp. For that is my way, the way of the shaman”.

Healing Begins With Self Love

Healing Begins With Self Love

Now frequently there’s a look of complete consternation on the face of my enquirers and I suspect the reason for that is that the simplicity of my candour doesn’t quit match up to their grandiose expectations of me. Yet what they don’t get and I completely understand that is that simplicity has the power to change even the most resistant of forces et al. For simplicity completely disarms the tyrannical grip of ones ego and its ones ego that truly has the power to impoverish ones mortal well-being and soul. That said; it took me the best part of 40 years to distill all the simplicity in and from all my learnings, 40 years of very necessary and yet implicitly unnecessary pain, struggle and suffering. However in breaking down the battlements of my left brain domineering ego whilst in that process destroying the facades of morally bankrupt dogma I stepped forward and with clarity and embraced my true potential. Indeed the point when all things changed and forever, for me and such was the powerful impact of my [ warrior of light ] transition upon my being. That I would implore all those struggling for answers right now, to commit to their own personal awakening, for self love begets healing and healing begets greater and greater inner peace. Namaste

An Exercise in Closure & Remembering

There is No Greater Journey, Than; Journeying into Our Souls Remembering

Healing is a Timeless Journey

Our Souls Healing is a Timeless Journey

What an incredible year 2013 has been for both myself personally and of course on the universal stage. With much needed change, clearing and healing unfolding on every conceivable front, yet and fortunately for me and unlike [ last year ] there’s no sense of personal regret deep inside me. That said; I couldn’t even begin to distill into words all that which has unfolded before me. Save only to say that my journey into remembering continues and unabated. I guess that’s why I wanted to close out my blog this year by simply emphasising the need for all evolving souls to continue to embrace not only their own souls accelerated growth as we move into 2014. But also the collective expansion that’s unfolding before us all and daily now. For the times they are a changing and we are changing with them, therein; my belief is that better times and greater healing times await all those prepared to evolve and rise above all their self limiting preoccupations. Because let’s face it, self love and self acceptance are the only forces capable of changing all things and for ever, for in our remembering we free ourselves from all the nonsensical fears that do not serve us well. Therein allowing ourselves to realise our full potential and live a reality where we are anything and everything, a reality where the light inside us shines by day and by night.

That said; I’m going to keep this post quite simple today and therein; close my blog for 2013 by graciously extending seasons greetings to all my fellow bloggers, readers of my blog and all those prepared to realise their full potential. May your hearts always be full to overflowing with the healing rays of unconditional love and may 2014 inspire you into all the greatness that you’ve always had the potential to be. Reigniting each and every one of you into the bright stars you’ve always been, lighting the way for others to follow, for such is my way, the way of the shaman, all part of my own journey into remembering.
