Together through Tough Times

The energy currently is a little surreal and weird, don’t you think? Who would have ever thought we would experience such a global lockdown?

There’s not one person unaffected during this global pandemic either emotionally, mentally, physically, spiritually or financially. I genuinely feel it’s time for introspection and gentleness, compassion and kindness for ourselves and others.

WE have got this! It’s important to know you are not alone for we’re all in this together.

It’s time to negotiate what we can, let go of what we can’t, and step into a vibration of presence. I’m enjoying my mindful walks and appreciating the fresh air with much more awareness and gratitude. Although we’re self-isolating I’m free to choose, and often will turn off the electronics, open a book, meditate, draw and paint, and I even bought a set of cards to play solitaire.

Smiling, it’s wonderful to touch something real, feel the textures, notice my breath, my body, and enjoy the scenery. It’s nourishment for my spirit amongst all the uncertainty.

Being present is a gift of living with simplicity.

A moment in time as we return home to ourselves, our heart, and to what’s important to us. It revives our energy, opens us to receive, and when the time is right, we will rise once again like the phoenix enriched with greater awareness and renewed.

Through adversity, something powerful emerges from within. Resilience is born, courage steps forward, and our vulnerability becomes our strength.

Some of the greatest gifts to humanity came when someone was at their lowest point and surrendered their struggle and gave it over to God/Universe. You, my friend, can change your mindset, and allow rather than push and struggle.

Maybe it’s time to clean out that cupboard, fix up the garden and house, learn something new, play with your children and partners, cuddle your animals, connect to someone you haven’t spoken to for some time, and see this as an opportunity to thrive rather than survive.

Remember, it’s okay to have good and not so good moments, you’re certainly not alone in these emotions. There is so much grief within our collective consciousness.

Let your tears fall, for they are healing you from the inside out.

My heart opens to you, and I feel you and believe in you.

Let’s hold a sacred space for each other. Love you 💗

Today, I’ve come to understand we are in a time of great need, a time of awakening, a time of remembering and opening to the truth of who we are. There are many enlightened beings supporting humanity and the earth’s evolution. We are not alone, and the contents within this book are to offer hope, inspiration and a guide to assist the ascension of ourselves and our planet.

Travel the Frequency with Us – Teachings from the Guardians of the Light

Have you ever wondered where our world is heading, and how could you, one person, make a difference?

Have you ever felt out of place, like you don’t belong? Or, deep within there’s a mission and you can’t seem to connect to it?

This book offers guidance and strategies to empower you to participate in your own evolution and that of Mother Earth. It’s a book of realisation, knowledge and wisdom.

Maria Lacey is the author of an award-winning book, One Path, Many Lights. She first began channelling the Guardians of the Light after her near-death experience in 2010. She lives in Melbourne, Australia.

“A book to be read by everyone who wants to be empowered with tools and guidance that are inspirational and easy to apply in your everyday life.”
– Maria Brouwers, Homeopath

“I am so excited by this new work by Maria Lacey; ‘Travel the Frequency with Us’. It continues the channelling that was shared by Maria at the end of her first book, ‘One Path, Many Lights’.

I found myself reading that chapter again before starting this new book, just to recapture the essence of what the Guardians of the Light want to share with us all.

The information, guidance and breathing exercises in this new book come together in such a simple yet profound way, there are also beautiful little poems written by Maria as an introduction to each chapter. 

This book is for and of our time in this world, may it bring like-minded souls together as well as introduce those that seek new strategies in the way they live their life.” – Francesca White author of Film, Food and I

Women are Dying Younger

ArtworkMariaLacey

Artwork by Maria Lacey (Katerina)

Sitting in a treehouse, yes, I’m telling the truth an impressive home built in the Mount Dandenong Ranges in Victoria, Australia. As I begin to write, a kookaburra gains my attention as it flies from one tree to another, flapping its wings loudly and sounding its laughter. It makes me giggle, and I realise how contagious laughter is.

Laughter opens us to joy. It releases all of those wonderfully yummy hormones that make us feel good. It eases stress and brings us into the present clearing away the head clutter. Laughter opens our heart, clears our throat and allows the purity of expression to be liberated.

It is healing, uplifting and downright funny! Yet, as adults, we often go for days without laughing. I mean, when was the last time you had a good belly laugh? Was it on your own or with others?

In recent times, while doing some professional development, a requirement for qualified counsellors. I came across some research saying, “Women are dying younger compared to previous decades due to loneliness and despair” It surprised me initially, then I considered some of the main contributing factors why women in their thirties through to late sixties consult with me.

A majority expressed feeling starved of emotional connection and were searching for meaning in their lives. They had a need and want to expand and grow and find value in themselves, and be valued by others, and this was not exclusive to single women.

So why are we feeling such despair?

Could it be we’re more disconnected today from social structures? I’m not meaning online, but personal gatherings where we can give and receive a hug, banter, watch body language and interact as human beings.

Women are meant to be communal. We are the nurturers, the seers, the wise women the wilderness. We seem to have lost connection with our tribe, and with ourselves. For centuries women gathered to support, nurture, learn, teach, laugh and cry together.

Young thirty-somethings are awakening to their soul paths and wanting to share their passion with the world. They express a wish to have a partner to walk alongside them, and that is across all age groups.

The human being is not meant to be isolated. We are meant to be in a community feeling connected and included.

Touch, eye contact and embrace are more powerful than any words. Everyone knows when they see me, I will always offer a hug. Why? Because it feels soooo good, and as much they say I’m a generous hugger, I receive abundantly in return.

If you’re feeling isolated and alone, please reach out and connect with someone. Know your interests, explore your curiosities, and connect to people with similar.

You ARE OF VALUE do not slip into the darkness. Shine your light bright and allow yourself to be seen. Your tribe is waiting.

Love you,

The Field of Flowers

3EBA4B39-B1F0-4DB8-945A-2717B33FA1B0

The below is an excerpt from my book that will be published early next year. It is a channeled book filled with love, healing and wisdom.

The Field of Flowers

Within each of you, there is a field that is so nourishing it is rich with your own crop of flowers. Each flower represents a life cycle, and each life cycle is represented by a seed within your heart, a seed of light that emits a vibration so radiant that the sun would be dull in its presence.

You are more significant than you can imagine and believe us when we say, you have a field so lush that you need only to connect to it. This field is your creativity.

It is the creative self that permeates all mind stuff and blooms at the time most required.

Our children of earth this time is filled with prosperity and potential. It is out of the box and not conditioned by society and culture. It is untamed, wild and free. Breathe out children of earth and sense and feel into it. It is spontaneous, bright and fun.

Creativity is your muse. It is your breath of fresh air to dull the pain and to open you to receive. It is creation in activity. We love you our children of earth, and we ask nothing of you but to believe in your own creative spirit, your own field of flowers.

Creativity cannot be tamed nor contained nor tempered. When it releases it is wild and free filled with possibility. It is the energy needed at the right time.

Creativity is far more than artwork, it is your creative intelligence, your spark of hope, it is the faith that gets you through on a long and dark night. It moves you into action and then leaves you feeling nourished. It inspires action through the creative seeds that are within.

Problems are solved, lyrics are written, art is inspired, and so on.

We tell you that creativity is not exclusive to some; it is available to all. Embrace it, know it and open to it. Allow those seeds to open and walk within your own field of flowers.

Please do not hide and deny your creativity for it is through this energy that inspires all. Share your creative spirit and water the seeds of others. Go forth children of earth and run within the field of flowers. We love you

Until next time, with love,

The Journey Through to Love

Love

First published in Sibyl Magazine November 2019

People come into our life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. Each has its purpose and opportunity for growth.

In my article, ‘Feeling into Life‘ I shared how I’d opened to love and invited a partner into my life. I mentioned how easy it was for past fears to crawl into the present, but I’d grown and was not the woman of my past. I’d made a conscious choice to surrender and ‘feel into’ this relationship. This rewarded me with strength and clarity as I heard clearly the voice of my heart as it said.

“Maria flow with it, feel into it, be happy, and trust.”

Little did I know what that exactly meant. For it wasn’t about trusting this man, or trust in the relationship with this man. It was about TRUSTING MYSELF! Yes, believing I was safe and could express and communicate with confidence my feelings, needs, wants and dreams.

Red flags were highlighted as they flashed like neon lights to offer me guidance. They were an opportunity to question, reflect, feel into my body and heal any uncomfortable emotions that may have arisen from my past. Also, to note when they weren’t mine and lovingly voice if required.

God bought me a man who made me laugh, showed me that I’m a kind, loving and compassionate woman, and was ready and worthy of great love and a companion to share my life.

God also showed me how far I’d healed that broken child who had her power taken away many times, which caused her grief, loss, confusion and despair. She no longer quivered inside when anger was projected at her. She was able to shield herself, detach from taking on someone else’s pain and lovingly hold the energy for them.

I remembered saying, “Where ever this is going is not as important as to what FEELS TRUE NOW!”

In this relationship, I remained grounded in the present and true to myself. I observed each experience with curiosity, compassion and love. My soul led the way, and I listened and did not question its purpose for I was fully flowing. Every choice was made to honour and love myself for in doing so, my heart opened like a lotus, pure and free.

This relationship tested me, and I celebrate today the gifts given. We are no longer together. Ahh, it was for a season and a reason, and what an amazing ride it was. This journey healed further many of my past relationships. It showed my inner child and me I could stand in my power with grace, strength and peace. My fears dissipated and opened me further into self-love and freedom.

By sharing my journey, I want to challenge you to LOVE YOURSELF MORE. Recall your power from those you have given it away to and breathe life into your dreams. For you are truly worthy of great love. It all begins with you.

Love you x

Awareness Through Emotional Discomfort

First published in Sibyl Magazine October 2019

It wasn’t comfortable when agitation began to stir within. Growing up those around me expressed theirs unhealthily. So, for me, I’d never allowed myself to show or feel anger, for I believed it was destructive, and the thought of projecting that towards another was soul-destroying.

Unfortunately, that wasn’t helpful because the anger imploded masked by sadness because I wasn’t freely expressing myself or felt safe to do so. In the past, occasionally it would rise like a serpent and strike. There was no stopping the rage that erupted in a swirl of euphoria as it was released. It would last only seconds. I can count the number of times on one hand that occurred. Shame and guilt followed, which caused me more grief as I buried it deeper into the recesses of my being.

It’s hard when you have denied that part of yourself to face it suddenly, yet, that’s precisely what’s needed, and I logically knew that.

When we meet something head-on, we come to realise it’s not as daunting as we’d initially thought or felt.

When acknowledged the rage lying in wait tempers, and becomes a smouldering flame ready for us to sit, listen, and heal.

Anger is a healthy emotion if expressed healthily. It’s not to be denied or pushed down. It’s an emotion that’s real and wants our attention because there’s much hurt and pain underneath.

Earlier this year, I sat with a friend, and she could hear my agitation. It had been with me all day, and it wasn’t until I openly expressed it, that I felt some relief. There had been a good reason in these past weeks why I felt that way. I’d seen my dentist for a crown, and while he was drilling my upper molar, he kept leaning an instrument against my front tooth. It had been sensitive for weeks, and I was frightened he’d caused significant damage.

The agitation initially was at him, but soon realised I was angry with myself for making only one attempt to tell him, and then resigning and putting up with it. After all, he was the expert I rationalised, but this wasn’t about him; it was about me speaking up to say STOP.

Having that realisation, I took some deep breaths down into my belly to lower my energy and anchor myself. It was then I felt calmer, and less overwhelmed by the emotion smouldering inside me.

Being grounded opened me to further clarity, and I felt self-forgiveness. This experience was a valuable lesson, one I’d ignored previously, and intended NEVER to repeat. It was time for me to value my body in all its entirety, and it deserved a voice to protect it.

Anger, when understood, is the voice that so willingly chooses to be heard. Listen to it, learn from it, and face it down to see what lies underneath, but never project it towards another. Lovingly empower yourself and shine your light upon it.

Until next time with love,
