As snowdrops and crocuses start poking their heads through the soil, they remind me of one of David Attenborough’s recent programmes: The Green Planet - Series 1.
In this programme he tells us about some of nature’s unusual survival methods. Some of the most deadly and vicious plants survive due to certain outside help, which unwittingly, for the benefit of both, provide a lifeline for the plants' well-being and survival of each.
The 'Hedgehog' or Tristerix cactus is covered in many long pointed spines. One of the few birds able to perch on the spines and evade its defences, is a fruit eating mockingbird. The mockingbird’s droppings fall on the seeds of the cactus thereby fertilising them.
The parasite Tristerix
We see this kind of chain of events happening repeatedly in the natural world. In fact once we start to look at things and events more closely, we can begin to see a 'Chain of Events' existing everywhere.
I am sharing with you a selection of photographs of the Queen. On the 6th February, we were reminded of the sudden death of King George VI on the 6th February 1952, after a long illness. This chain of event 70 years ago, changed the status of the young Elizabeth from princess to that of queen.
At the time, Princess Elizabeth was on honeymoon with Prince Philip at Kenya's oldest safari lodge, Treetops - an elaborate treehouse on the edge of a watering hole in Aberdare National Park. There was a platform where you could climb up and watch the animals. Lady Pamela Hicks (1st cousin to Prince Philip) who was travelling with the Queen, tells us ‘she climbed up as a princess and climbed down as Queen’.
At her Coronation she pledged ‘I declare before you all that my whole life whether it be long or short shall be devoted to your service and the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong’.
That was a promise she has kept for over 70 years. She is now the longest reigning monarch in British history. Bells will ring out as celebrations for her Platinum Jubilee will be held all over the country and Commonwealth.
We see the many changes that have happened during her long and wonderful reign. She has managed to bring the monarchy into the modern age and to keep it moving with, and abreast of, the times. She has dedicated herself to the promises she made at her Coronation.
This year, on the eve of the 6th February, the Queen wrote ‘Tomorrow, 6th February marks the anniversary of my Accession in 1952. It is a day that, even after 70 years, I still remember as much for the death of my father, King George V1 as for the start of my reign.’
As we look back on the many chains of events that have happened during her reign, she has continued to look ahead. One of the most recent changes being her wish that the Duchess of Cornwall be crowned Queen Consort when Prince Charles ascends to the throne. This is principally due to: the Duchess’ quiet work and number of engagements she has carried out - often behind the scenes; her dedication to many of her favourite charities; and the support and love she has given Prince Charles over the years. Much water has passed under the bridge and all this has been closely observed by the Queen.
After having shown two quite different examples of ‘Chain of Events’ it got me thinking that indeed there was really nothing unusual or clever about a Change of Events. In fact the more I thought about it, I realised that just about everything is as a result of a chain of events! Why don’t you start by thinking about the chain of events that have happened in your lives, and then as you expand it, the more interesting it becomes. In history, in the natural world, science, the arts, religion... you can go on forever. What fun!
Weaving the Connection of Light
Everything in the universe is connected by threads of light. A Divine network.
We are all responsible for how we weave these threads, for they are strands of light, colour, scent and sound.
We use them all, mostly unconsciously, every day. But when we start to CONSCIOUSLY weave these patterns, we become the artists of the higher realms.
Every thought is registered, every word and every movement are all collected to create the greater whole. What a responsibility!
We can either paint a dark, murky picture or a light filled, magical, colourful one.
We are all here for a significant purpose at this time. We deliberately chose this prosperous period of evolution to incarnate on earth. We are learning to overcome darkness and to vibrate to a higher frequency.
Everything is formed through the vibration of light, whether it is of a lower quality or higher and we blend in with it all the time.
If we are experiencing a lowness of spirit, try bringing in the Light by maybe going outside, listening to the birds or breathing in the energy of the trees, flowers, grass and air, or listening to music etc and by so doing, we automatically vibrate with the refreshed energy and consequently enhance the condition. We will resonate to the same frequency and through the law of attraction, attract more of the same quality.
The thread of light or darkness becomes stronger when we give it power through the direction of our thoughts.
Now is the time to weave the most colourful, beautiful threads of light so that the pattern around the earth becomes a network of Divine energy from which mankind can draw healing, love and transformation.

Crop Circle Tours
As bookings are coming in thick and fast and travel plans are being relaxed globally, I hope that many people from overseas will be free at last to join me on one of my wonderful crop circle tours this summer. I look forward to welcoming you to our sacred Isle of Albion and the magic of the circles.
The first crop circle tour on Wednesday 27th July 2022 will include an optional extra of a much sought after private entry to Stonehenge, right up to the stones. Only a few people are allowed in at any one time. It is a mystically wonderful experience to see the sun set over the stones and feel the magic of this ancient place. You will feel their powerful energy surround and embrace you.
The second crop circle tour on Tuesday 2nd August 2022, has an optional extra of an evening flight. This is an incredible way of seeing circles in all their majesty from the air, together with the surrounding countryside, which depending on where the circles are, might include flying over the famous stone complex at Avebury and the sacred Silbury Hill, the largest man-made hill in Europe.
I also take a few private tours by appointment
‘Lexophile’ describes those that love words, and sentences such as: ‘You can tune a piano, but you can't tuna fish,’ and, ‘To write with a broken pencil is pointless.’
An annual competition is held by the ‘New York Times’ to see who can create the best and most original lexophile:
England has no kidney bank, but it does have a Liverpool.
Haunted French pancakes give me the crepes.
This girl today said she recognised me from the Vegetarians Club, but I'd swear I've never met herbivore.
I know a guy who's addicted to drinking brake fluid, but he says he can stop any time.
A thief who stole a calendar got twelve months.
When the smog lifts in Los Angeles U.C.L.A.
I got some batteries that were given out free of charge.
As usual I am sending you Pam Gregory’s forecast for February, and an astonishing piece of driving.
