Creativity, Insight and Change

_G2A0176_low_res

What an exciting week filled with much creativity, insight and change.

Presently, I’m re-branding; new photos, and a new theme for my website and blog. I’ve loved every single moment. Everything has flowed with such ease through many hours of dedicated time.

My web designer Neri from Sacred Spaces had been so attentive, creative and intuitive with my needs for my new look and feel. Love you Neri.

The photo shoot, styling and re-branding by Helen Robinett was one of the most brilliant experiences. Helen really saw me, spent the time to know my business and moved in a way that was encouraging, creative and fun. I received so much more, and my confidence and clarity in my business and life direction have amplified. Thank you, Helen.

During and after the photo shoot something beautiful and unexpected emerged.

The power of the feminine that I have for far too long hidden, breathed a sigh and illuminated with such gentleness. When I connected with her essence, it reminded me how others had often seen my gentleness as a weakness and how I’d taken that on and denied that part of me.

Owning and embracing my gentleness with all of my heart, I felt such quiet strength and inner calm. That feeling was real and has integrated and strengthened me beyond what I could imagine. I feel more authentically me, confident and fearless.

My shift in consciousness and transformation has been due to my commitment to myself these past two years, and my deep soul healing. We are worth it, my friends, don’t hesitate in putting yourself first, and remember fear is an illusion.

Wow, what a week!

Until next week,

Reflection in Rhyme

_G2A0110_low_res

Love days where you sit down, turn off all devices and connect within your body and feel into whatever creativity wants to come forth.

Interesting, as I sat, a poem or should I say rhyme I wrote in a matter of seconds on the 23rd January popped into my head. I re-read it and wondered, “What was I thinking?” Then, on further reading, I understood.

Are you curious?

Laughing well maybe I’ll wait and see what your thoughts are, and what it would mean for you.

Love the way the unconscious articulates to bring awareness 😉

Trouble, trouble

Pairs or doubles

Toil and foil

Linen soiled

Let me shine the light to see

Honey, there is nothing but you and me

Dreams or visions

Money or fame

Let the game begin

Today hooray!

Until next week,

How Sound Affects Your Life

SibylFeb2018

First Published in Sibyl Magazine February 2018

Have you ever wondered why certain sounds and noises create an emotional and physical response?

For example, a shrilling scream may sound piercing to the ears and create a feeling of dread in the stomach. You instantly hold your breath and listen, then it quickens as your brain is assessing, and the primal response of flight or fight kicks in. Your legs are either light and ready to run or heavy and paralysed as the adrenaline shoots through your system.

There’s the opposite like when you hear the sound of the ocean and the waves caressing the sand. A feeling of lightness and calm flow through your body, your breathing slows, and the mind becomes silent and peaceful. Your awareness heightens, and you smell the salt in the air, feel the slight breeze kissing your face, and the sun’s warmth on your skin brings a gentle comfort. Then, your body naturally takes a deep soulful breath in and out.

We are an incredible spiritual being in a human body, and our connection to Mother Earth brings us back into harmony, balance and alignment.

All sound has its frequency and accordingly creates a response such as the sound of your voice. Have you ever noticed some voice tones grate, and others soothe?

We often fill our lives with harsh noises by what we choose to listen to through television, radio, music, etc. I’m not saying we should incubate ourselves and not experience all of what life has to offer. I’m sharing how important it is to create balance and make a conscious choice to recalibrate and re-harmonise our body, mind and spirit.

Last year I had a near death experience which caused ill health for some time. My brain was in a fog, I couldn’t articulate and remember simple words, and I was listless. Loving friends visited and gave me DVD’s to watch, cooked me meals and sat to keep me company. Their intentions were pure, but the sound and frequency of their voices caused my brain distress, and very quickly my body responded, I felt nauseous and the colour on my face turned grey as my energy depleted. I couldn’t watch the DVD’s or television because it did the same.

My body and brain needed silence to heal, and then along the way, the sounds and movement in nature were my gifts, and then I began to recalibrate and move my healing to another level by chanting and singing.

Then, I chose the music and DVD’s I could listen to and watch, and I recognised the sounds that soothed and uplifted my energy and those that agitated and drained it.

This experience although difficult taught me so much about how we respond energetically to our environment, and the importance of having this awareness for our health and wellbeing.

You are an incredible human being made up of trillions of cells. It’s time to nurture, harmonise and recalibrate, and take responsibility for your energy, and wellness will be your reward.

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,
