This Week’s Reflection

Leaf-Light

It’s been a busy week and today has been a good time for reflection.

Over the past few months, something beautiful had been developing about the direction of my life and purpose. I’d been working hard, and what I hadn’t really understood until now is I’ve been doing profound soul inner work. It hasn’t been easy. Oh, heck I’m going to say, it’s been tough, but through this I have a greater understanding of my recent near-death experience and the prolonged ill health I had.

With this shift, a new ME had emerged with greater clarity, reawakened desire, passion, and with immense joy, the voice of my soul vibrated through the darkness and into the light. Hallelujah.

Then this week, overwhelm hit!

I’d been like a precious, delicate flower, as pure as a newborn babe, sensitive, empathic and gentle, feeling my way and guided by my soul. Then, I got caught up in the chaos of the world for it demands fast jolted movement, and it felt too harsh, hurried and urgent for this re-birthed soul.  I temporarily lost my connection to the transformed ME.

How easy it is to get caught up and entangled!

How did I know? Because my body expressed it through pain resulting in fragmented thoughts and unpredictable emotions. I listened to my body, drew my breath in and out and anchored myself into mother earth. Then I stood back, reassessed and reconnected and aligned with my heart and higher mind. It was as simple as that.

Breath is life and the doorway to the soul.

This profound shift in my consciousness has awakened me to my way in this world.

A Message from the Guardians of the Light

woman-happiness-sunrise-silhouette-40192

The energy of love flows within the universal stream of light.

Dear ones, know that you are love. Know that love resides within all beings on this earth plane. Know that love has been hidden for far too long.

It’s time children of earth to claim your right. Stand in love, be love and know love for the simplicity and truth that it is.

Let not your fear rule you. Fear is an illusion to break down the spirit of knowing.

Today our children of earth be courageous and surrender to love.  You are not surrendering your free-will and ability to choose, that is the illusion fear creates.

We love you and know this to be truth xx

Star Child – The Soul Sings

SibylBlogJan2018

First Published in Sibyl Magazine January 2018

As a small child, I used to run around singing, ‘I’m a star child, I’m a star child.’
To be honest, I never thought about what it meant or was. I suppose I just knew, and it made me happy to skip and sing.

The innocence of a child is refreshingly open and fearless.

As the star child experienced more of what the human life offered, she often found herself sitting in her bath knees hunched up to her chest and singing, but this time it was different. It was sounds and frequencies; she was calling and connecting to home.

I was around eight years of age when I found my soul’s voice. I remember every cell within my body would activate and vibrate giving me such a euphoric feeling. Sadness slipped away, and I felt uplifted and energised.

Connecting back to that small child, she always knew her purpose on this earth. She knew she was to bring hope into this world and was gifted a beautiful smile, sparkling eyes, and a soothing voice. She understood it raised people’s vibration and it was her role to do precisely that.

Though along the way she had lost herself.

Her focus had become external as she took on her role with gusto not realising how important it was to also take care of herself, her energy and her light.

Have you ever felt that way?

The responsibility began to weigh heavily and at times, felt impossible as her own life spiralled into the abyss. The abyss was her thoughts, the mindless overactive brain that drew from fear, past pain and the what if’s.

Where was the star child? Where had she gone?

This day in my home I was stopped suddenly by a chorus singing. The voices were angelic, and I went outside to look where they came from, but they weren’t external. They were within my left ear. So, I laid down on my bed and listened.

I wish I could describe in words the feeling of the harmonic resonance. It was as if many voices were coming from many directions singing in harmony with each other. Then it dawned on me, OMG they were all me! My heart burst open, and tears flowed in recognition. I lay down for some time being blissed out, re-tuned, loved and reconnected to ME.

Life can be a roller coaster, and during those dips when our vibration is low we can become mindless and unconscious in action.

Through experience, life has shown me that mindlessness only creates fear and uncertainty, and traps us. When we connect to our heart and soul, we feel love and loved, and our breath naturally becomes deeper as we anchor to Mother Earth bringing ourselves into the present.

In the present, mindlessness becomes mindfulness.

Being mindful, we make conscious choices connected to our inner knowing creating simplicity and flow. The star child emerges and once again sings in harmony with her soul’s purpose.

Goodbye 2017 and Welcome 2018

goodby 2017 fireworks pic

Gosh, even saying 2018 almost feels space age to me at the tender young age of fifty-seven 😉

I’m sitting at my computer and wondering what could I share as we leave this year behind us, and it pops into my head like this:

–    Value the experiences, don’t judge them.

–    Draw out the wisdom gained.

–    Anchor that wisdom right here, right now.

–    Today is a new day filled with many possibilities.

–    Allow the past to cultivate richness and strength.

–    Move into the future with this knowledge and apply the wisdom.

Each year I choose a word sort of like an intention as to how I want my year to be. This year in 2017 I decided:

SIMPLICITY – to set clear boundaries that serve, love and support me, and to think, speak and act from my heart. To laugh and play a lot, and not take things too seriously.

Did I achieve it? Each time I began complicating my life I remembered my word, connected to my heart and immediately simplified it.  It’s amazing how easy that was to do.

Did I set clear boundaries? I’m getting better, laughing, and having a puppy the latter part of this year certainly helped. By training Maggie and creating her boundaries, surprisingly, it reinforced mine. We’re never alone in our pursuit to learn.

My word for 2018 is:

JOY – My happiness guides me and is the key to all my choices. When I’m happy I’m playful, creative, energised, a master manifestor, and passionate and this will naturally benefit others.

I’d love to read your word for 2018. Be brave my friends and write the word below in the comments. Writing something down with a loving intention creates a wave of magical energy to support you.

As 2017 closes I’ll be in meditation as I’ve done for many years.

I love to begin around ten minutes before the stroke of midnight. I then prepare and align with my heart, and soul, and higher mind and will continue into the new year for however long it flows.

Through my meditation, I expand my light and send healing to our world and especially Mother Earth. I’m also blessed to have received many divinely guided messages, which have supported the next stage of my journey. For this reason, I have next to me a pen and paper to write them down.

Maybe you could try it. If you like you can have a question ready, as you set your intention and align your energy, let go of expectations and meditate. Enjoy the bliss 😊

Well my friends, have an excellent rest of this year, feel the anticipation building and launch into 2018 with a grateful and loving heart.

Until next year,

Back on Path, Mindfulness in Action

One_Path_Many_Lights_eBook_WebsiteAn excerpt from my book One Path, Many Lights – Chapter Eight

Back on Path, Mindfulness in Action

After the experience with my carotid artery I knew it was important to maintain some form of fitness and stay healthy. However, I realised it had been a number of weeks since I had walked any significant distance.

Off to the Lilydale Lake I went. Getting up in the dark and trying to find my clothes, I started to wonder, What am I doing?  Yet after washing the sleep from my eyes I could see clearly again and realised it wasn’t that bad!

My friend Charlotte and I started our walk around the lake when it was still dark. Street lights along the path partially lit our way and we were guided by the light of the full moon. It was magical.

On our past walks together we had talked and laughed, and focused mainly on our goal of getting around the lake twice in a good time. Yet something had happened. We started noticing so much more – like rabbits sitting tall and watching us. As we came close, they turned around with their fluffy white tails and scuttled away. At first we only noticed one but hiding behind clumps of grass was a whole family. A duck swam silently through the calm water forming a V-shaped wake as it glided along. The sun was rising in all its colour and brilliance. Mist hovered over the lake. Charlotte imagined we were in a scene from King Arthur. I thought we were in Scotland waiting for the Loch Ness monster to rise up and grace us with its presence.

We smiled encouragingly as our imagination bubbled — something I hadn’t felt for a while – and I got in touch with my inner child.

A little marsupial, larger than a mouse and not as big as a rat, sat comfortably on the side of the walkway, eating happily and not phased one bit as we strode by. We looked in amusement, making up stories about what it was thinking about us. Sitting on a post, two small blue birds watched as we walked by, their vivid colour bringing us feelings of happiness and putting a skip in our step.

Everything had changed. Nature’s beauty and richness was enhanced.

We expanded our breath as we walked and talked, each of our senses taking in the experience of the moment. Our bodies were relaxed even though we walked fast. Our backs extended upwards as if we were getting taller. We decided to rename Lilydale Lake “Lake Epiphany” because there had been many times that answers had profoundly dropped in.

No longer did we talk about getting fit. We shared that we were nourishing our souls as we breathed in the moment, aware and open.

It’s so easy, through life’s twists and turns, to lose our connection with the very thing that inspires and nourishes us: nature.

I now understand that reconnecting with nature makes us infinitely richer.

Back in the car we wound down the windows when they fogged up from our body heat. Driving off I felt the breeze cooling the perspiration on my face and down the back of my neck. I was alive! With gratitude, I silently thanked Lake Epiphany and all of her inhabitants for sharing and showing me the way.

Rattle, Rattle Goes the Train

TrainBack

Rattle, rattle goes the train

Or is it?

Can you hear it?

Can you feel it?

Listen

Ears, mouth and eyes wide open

Haha

It’s not the sound of the train

Ah yes, the sound of my brain

Ho hum what to do

This brain of mine never stops

Rattle, rattle, rattle it goes

Where’s it going?

Appearing to change tracks as quick as a flash

Oh dear what can I say

The brain, a train, a drain.

Breaking Through the Illusion of Fear

BreakingThroughFear

Have you ever been nervous before an event? My hand’s up high and waving I have!

It was a beautiful sunny day, and I was on my way to be a guest speaker to a group of peers, and my heart was racing, hands were sweating, and my throat felt so dry and lumpy I kept swallowing trying to clear it.

Have you ever suffered social anxiety or anxiety of any sort … ME, ME, ME yep!

Breathe Maria I kept on saying, and then it came to me to ask my higher and wiser self to fill me with love and anchor me in peace.

Instantaneously, a quietness emanated from within along with a warmth and comfort which calmed my body as well as my mind. Then my voice broke through reciting the below words with such gentleness and clarity:

Love is the key to all that is me

Love is my nectar

Love is my nurturer

Love is my strength

Love is my power

I kept saying this mantra over and over again…

It was thirty minutes till I’d reach my destination. My voice had become stronger and louder, and I felt a swell of love as I embodied those words with such heart and harmony.

By the time I arrived, I was enchanted, in love, and in alignment with me. The speaking engagement flowed brilliantly, and I felt grounded yet light as a feather and shiny as a star.

It’s amazing what can happen when you ask your higher and wiser self to help, and even more amazing when your heart is so open and flowing all fear associated ailments just disappear.
