Final Report from the Commission of Inquiry into Mother and Baby Homes delayed. Again.

Survivors were since notified that the report would be delayed for a further four months.

Woman cannot recall Tuam mother-and-baby home but ‘my body remembers’

‘There was still ample opportunity for us as a mother and daughter to come together, but the system certainly stopped that’

Chariklo - Healing the Divine Feminine

Chariklo, at 150 miles across, the largest of the Centaur asteroids that orbit between Saturn and Uranus was recently discovered to have two rings. The larger ring measures 4 miles wide or 7 km and the outer ring measures 2 miles or 3 km across.
Chariklo the divine aspect of Chiron the wounded healer:

"Contemplating the qualities of Chariklo, and how they express in people's lives, we can notice the following:

  • Gift for creating or holding 'sacred space'
    This can be instinctive, or through learned skills. 
  • A temenos, container or alembic within which the 'work of soul' is facilitated.
  • The theme of boundaries also applies.
  • Ability to witness. With Chariklo strong in a horoscope we find people doing the often 'invisible' work of caring for those who are in transition ... being born, giving birth, dealing with illness or dying. 
  • Chariklo is a midwife. Literally, as in physical birth and death, or metaphorically when we 'die' to an old identity or way of life.
  • deeply yin energy, out of which new yang is born. Recognition of the silent power of this profound receptivity. 
  • We find Chariklo representing a reservoir of compassion, devotion, discernment and presence. Being dutiful, consistent, supportive, forebearing, kindly and nurturing." By Melanie Reinhart   Melanie Reinhart

The symbolism described by Melanie Reinhart resonates hugely at this time.

Christmas Tree Lighting - Tuam

Wisdom of the Ancient Heart

As we move into a more 'heart based' reality, it's essential that we all look within to the aspects of ourselves that finally need to be acknowledged, healed and released. 
Early childhood trauma, inherited trauma and emotional blocks can all contribute to a closed heart space. 
As we work with the energy of the heart centre, lets see what arises from our collective consciousness.

Baby Lights

Tree decorated with all 796 baby names

Heart Sadie Cramer - Sign Denise Gormley
This event was called by Amanda Larkin (daughter of survivor, Carmel Larkin) in response to the fact that, despite it being a full year since the site had initial excavations, nothing has been done. She wanted to highlight the fact that survivors are still waiting for their requests to be met and that 796 baby bodies and four mothers still remain unaccounted for.

A healing day with music, art and poetry, the sun shone as survivors reminded us about their ongoing quest for justice
as did the siblings of those buried at this illegal burial plot.

These candles were at Belfast City Hall, the site in Tuam during the Pope's visit last year, Letterfack Industrial School graveyard (all night vigil). Two went to a vigil in London for Peter Tyrell's anniversary and the rest were burnt all night in Tuam on Sunday August 25th. With love Xx
