Oasis offers listeners a place of rest and recuperation, to regenerate body and mind. Here you can pause for a few moments of peace and calm and lay down your burdens for a short while.
Listeners are guided through a four-minute Emerald Alignment, followed by a harp meditation. The Emerald Alignment is a practical, self-help method of energy field alignment, which can be used by people of all ages for healing, sealing and protecting the auric field.
Over the ages, many people have likened human life to a play, also describing it as a script, which we ourselves are writing, staging and performing. Throughout our lives, we each have many roles, in various dramas, with countless changes of scenery, props, cast and crew and we become lost in the illusion of it all. On this earthly stage, there is much to play with, despair of and delight in!
If we clench our fist and then very slowly allow the hand to uncurl and open, resting there for a moment and repeating this a few times, we can feel how the energy changes between these two states.
If we clench our fist and then very slowly allow the hand to uncurl and open, resting there for a moment and repeating this a few times, we can feel how the energy changes between these two states. The tight fist is tense and grasping, needy and defensive, greedy and aggressive.
The open hand is peacefully inviting; it lets go and is able to give, receive and co-operate.
I was working in an office that overlooked a river, running through the centre of town. It was good to be able to step outside and take a refreshing break by the water. A heron often visited here, swooping gracefully down, to the delight of those passing by.
People would stop and take a moment to watch as the heron stood very still by the water, providing a picture of poise and a focus for a moment of calm reflection.
If we find ourselves shut in a very dark room, it takes a while for our eyes to adjust. At first we can’t see anything at all. Then, if there is even the smallest chink of light, we begin to get our bearings.
We are able to make out shapes, find our way around and locate the door! Even a tiny amount of light can help us to change our situation, once we have adapted.

These are turbulent times and in the midst of so much conflict and chaos, hearts are troubled. Many people are feeling uncertainty, anxiety and fear in their everyday lives. Collectively we are facing huge challenges and crises. There is a growing sense that we have an emergency on our hands and there is a yearning for greater peace and stability. In different ways people are asking: “What can I do that will help?”
Art and Alignment is concerned with connection and expression. It looks at the importance of strengthening our connection to our higher self and engaging with creativity and imagination. Creative activity, when aligned with higher awareness, can bring the messages of the soul into physical expression and become a powerful force for healing. On the Art and Alignment webpage, there is free access to booklets and videos containing personal stories, which reveal a process of growth and healing through creativity. These accounts give a perspective on personal alignment and the soul journey.
There are aids to meditation, which may help people to relax and find a calm place within. Candles, incense, a special corner of a room, music, lighting and aromatherapy oils can all help to create a space and a mood for meditation. Flowers, pictures, objects and crystals are often used to good effect.
