A Moment in Time

Hope1pexels-photo-414586

This week I wanted to share on my blog a moment in time… Smiling, wondering what I mean?

Every moment beautiful soul is precious, every moment is to be treasured and held with such grace that every breath expands the energy and light within and ripples out to the cosmos.

There have been many moments we may wonder whether we have wasted, and today I’m here to SHOUT OUT there are no wasted moments. Not now, not ever!

Really beautiful soul, life is a mixture of moments. Regret is wasted energy and only holds us in the past, and creates dense emotion held in the lower chakras that swell and shadow our beautiful light.

NOW IS A MOMENT IN TIME and each moment comes with fresh new opportunity.

There’s a quote that says, “Seize the moment!” Know your opportunity to do this is infinite.

Love you, until next week

The Key

Challenges, challenges, challenges…. Oh what to do?
Tell me, tell me, tell me which key one or two.
Charlie Brown did tell me, oh why can’t I remember
Let the key story begin
And fill the door with wonder

Challenges are fulfilling if we know an answer or two
Why do I make this so difficult
Just try each one you fool

Ha, let me in don’t shut me out
Little should I doubt when life turns about
Turn that key dear one
Let your heart guide and see
Time to change the thought
And believe it can and it will be

Curiosity is a dream
The dream that life creates
Let the curious be the leaders
And see the colour extreme

Changes are within
The world knows not what I see
May these words flow into you
And feel a connection with thee
Doors open and shut all the time
Laugh, live, and try each key

Until next week beautiful readers,

Magical Blessings in Hawaii

SibylAugust2018Issue

First Published Sibyl Magazine August 2018

Recently in Hawaii, a place filled with mana, the energy of the ancient, an essence felt like a gentle cloud lifting your spirit. We landed in Honolulu and then took a flight to Kauai the smallest island of the Hawaiian group, yet the oldest.

Several hours after we landed Pele the volcano on the Big Island erupted. After a discussion with the local natives, they expressed no surprise nor concern. They understood Pele and had a deeper more profound connection which gave me confidence that all would be well.

On my second morning, I was enjoying breakfast by the ocean with a couple of friends when a native in spirit came to me. We began a conversation, unbeknown to my friends sitting at the table, and he asked if I would do a ceremony on the beach, which I agreed. I have to say that I didn’t know what that would look like but trusted I would know at the time.

That afternoon we went off to peruse the island, and the next morning I went down to the ocean alone and began to walk along the beach. The sun shone with such warmth, the sea breeze gently kissed my skin, and the salt air made me feel alive and happy. The ocean was magical, and then I stumbled across a seal sunning itself looking delightfully peaceful. This was the place!

Feeling a sense of excitement, I took off my sandals and walked into the water up to my ankles, then raised my hands, and as I did the native spirits surrounded me. I unleashed my soul’s voice, a light language I have sung since a small child. Then I heard them as they sang in the same language, a first for me, and my heart burst open with joy. The energy was electrifying yet soothing as we harmonised together, and I soon lost myself in it. For how long I have no idea, but what I can say is I was abruptly woken out of my state by a rush of icy cold water between my legs. OMG. I looked down to see the water was lapping at the top of my thighs. Had I walked in further?

I moved back out of the water and onto the wet sand, feeling a little dazed. Then my feet sunk into the compacted sand covering my ankles. Then, thump, thump thump. A steady beat pounded hard under my feet, the sand around moved with the intensity, tears began to flow for I felt Mother Earth’s heartbeat. I gently closed my eyes feeling one with her, a sacred time, never to be forgotten.

Previously, I’ve been compelled to travel to far and distant places to heal the land, and the people, and be the key to open portals and vortexes. This time was very different for it was a gift and blessing for me. A past life known about yet confirmed in greater detail, which tears still flow in gratitude today.

Namaste

Until next week,

Full Moon Eclipse and our Energy In Motion

The full moon and eclipse are happening tomorrow here in Aussie, and the energy has been intense, and especially for us sensitives.

This week I’ve found my energy slightly erratic at times and other times smooth and harmonious as deep emotion rose and then subsided like waves crashing against the rocks. Admittedly, it got my attention for I felt the spray but never a tidal wave that overwhelmed and left me gasping for breath. Or at least, I’m happy to say not for me this week, although I put my hand up to having a little outburst! Haha, yes even a friend couldn’t stop laughing for I’m not known to express in that way.

After my outburst, I vacuum cleaned and washed my floors to dissipate and transmute the energy. Smiling, it felt great, and the reasoning dropped in effortlessly, enough for me to laugh about it, and take responsibility for my feelings and action.

I’m trusting you have a healthy way to release and transform any charged energy that propels you forward with underlying deep hurt, sadness and pain. If not could I suggest the following; Walk away, change your focus, get outside in nature, do some housework or other activity, and most importantly breathe and take three deep conscious breaths releasing the pent-up energy. Trust that helps.

During this phase universally it’s not the time to analyse and overthink nor pursue the answers to any emotion that is bubbling to the surface but to SHOW UP, feel into, wait and listen. 

In many ways, it’s been cathartic to feel, acknowledge release and as one of my students said this week, ‘shut the door’ and celebrate the healing and newfound awareness.

Interestingly, with a clearer head that feels spacious, I’ve felt less inclined to fill it up. To be honest, it feels soooo much lighter! My schedule has also been cleared this week, which admittedly I would generally scramble to fill, but not this week.

It was time to honour me, my feelings and go with the flow, and I’ve played more with my pup Maggie, walked more, spent time in nature often, written in my journal and rested.

Smiling, and all without the usual guilt and urgency to multi-skill and that brings me to another realisation in my week. I now want to be single focused which has delightfully made me more productive and present in my life. I used to be so proud of multi-skilling, but this week I’ve come to understand that for me at this time, multi-skilling had created a busy brain, which became a whirlpool of thoughts and lifted me into the ethers unable to really and truly anchor great ideas and inspiration into my day. Let alone feelings and expressions of happiness and creativity.

Lol, logic can often go out the window when we’re ungrounded and unexpressed emotion can have its way with us. Just saying 😉

Well enough from me today, trust that sharing a little snippet of my week will support you in yours.

Until next week,

The Pain in ‘Playing it Safe’

Safe.. hmm ‘playing it safe’ a medley of words put together to enhance one’s own sense of safety.

What does all of this mean when we unscramble the thoughts that are so unhelpful within our egoic perception.

The other day, I experienced an intensity of gut-wrenching pain. I experienced dread in the pit of my stomach I hadn’t felt for a long time. Then the thought came in, “I’ve done something wrong? I’m in trouble.” And then, “How can I fix it?”

This pain came from deep within and was triggered by social media. Someone I knew unliked my page, and another unsubscribed to my mailing list. I know! How could that cause such an extreme reaction, but it did.

After much searching, I had created all sorts of scenarios and concluded that I hadn’t done anything wrong. After all, I’ve also unsubscribed, and it wasn’t personal. So where was this coming from?

And then, I felt it! It was the wounded child crying out who wanted to be loved and always felt she had done something wrong. In desperation, this child did what she could to fix it, but it was never enough.

Then, I realised I had often ‘played it safe.’ Others would differ because I have indeed been on some adventures and taken many risks. But, there was always something inside holding me back, something that kept me small, something that created an empty void, isolation, and aloneness from the rest of the world.

Connection and love were all this child wanted but stuck in her belief, she continued to find a reason to confirm that.

The adult and wise woman I am, knew this was not the case and my heart burst open in gratitude for this strong reaction which alerted me to the fact this poor child was still in pain. So, I sat with her for a while, talked to her, loved her through our tears, and something beautiful and profound happened. The tears turned into tears of joy; they sparkled and danced as my body moved with grace. Together as one, we laughed and giggled and felt whole once again.

I’ve come to realise no matter how much work we’ve done on ourselves. It is in the truth of our emotion that invokes further insight into our subconscious beliefs. Playing it safe is a metaphor, yet it is so true because the subconscious will create parts to keep us safe. At that time, it was important, but as the child grew and experienced life, those reasons were no longer valid, and instead of supporting her growth, it held her back in the past wounded empty state.

The personality ego is a funny thing for it often creates an unreal perception. We watch others often making judgements as they watch us doing the same. There is so much more depth in each of us.

BREATHE my friends, STOP AND LISTEN, FEEL your emotion, and ALLOW IT TO SPEAK TO YOU, then you may heal and create from a conscious and aware state of being.

If you need support to break-through old sabotaging beliefs. Connect with me through my website and see how I may help through one of my services.

Love you, until next week,

Clarity is a Great Builder of Confidence

Blog Pic

Clarity is a great builder of confidence. How do you feel about that statement? Does it resonate with you? Have you found when you are clear your confidence is never in question? In fact, it may not even be on your radar.

In the past few weeks, I’ve recognised that many of my clients have felt confused, overwhelmed and lacked confidence in their decision making. They expressed feeling anxious, stressed, irritable at times, and generally unhappy.

As we sat together and I listened intently to their story with an open heart. I noticed as each client processed with greater understanding, their body would sit up straighter, shoulders no longer slumped and what seemed difficult, overwhelming and obstructed prior, was now replaced with possibility and options.

Once again, the light shone through as I witnessed their breath drawn deeper into their body. Less in primal flight and fight mode, there was an expression of safety and being heard.

Each day, I’m thankful to be a ‘wayshower’. I’m in awe of my clients and students as they share with courage their most profound pain and desires. You inspire me. You see, I see YOU. I feel your soul and support you to reconnect with the wisdom that is within.

Remember YOU HAVE THE POWER.

Clarity IS a great builder of confidence, and it’s okay to share and have someone else create a sacred space for you to be held and nurtured. You ARE awesome and unique, and I’m privileged and honoured to guide you.

Interestingly, as I sit here writing, I feel exulted as the passion rises for my purpose to restore hope into the hearts of many, and I do this through inspiring people ready for transformation through deep healing, spiritual teachings, psychological insight and of course, the written word. You see, I can relate on many levels because my journey has not always been an easy one, and although heartbreaking at times, and others magical and profound, the benefits empower me to listen and share strategies from a place of knowing.

If you are interested in gaining clarity and building your confidence, then feel comfortable contacting me for an appointment. I work both in my healing sanctuary and through skype and zoom. Remember, energy flows where your attention goes, and I can hold space no matter where you are in the world.

Make A Wish

SibylJuly2018

First Published Sibyl Magazine July 2018

Recently I dropped into a new age store and decided on the spur of the moment to pay for a half hour reading. The woman used tarot cards, and the wish card appeared twice. She reminded me although it says three wishes you have only one wish. I remembered sitting there thinking hard, “What could I wish for that wouldn’t waste this precious one?” I couldn’t decide and chose to save it for later.

Within a couple of days, I found a dandelion on my bedroom floor. I wondered for a moment how it came to be in my home. You see ever since I was a child each time a dandelion floated around me I knew I could make a wish. I called it my wishing star, and then remembered the tarot card and my one wish. I mean really, why was it so hard to make? What was stopping me?

Sitting in contemplation, I concluded it was fear stopping me. The concern I could waste this opportunity and the biggest fear was being unworthy. Then I wondered how I could make a wish that would also benefit others, after all, I always delighted in others gains, but by this time my mind had become a whirlpool of energy, thoughts off in all directions and then, that protective part of me slammed shut, and once again I delayed making that wish.

It was time to move from my rental home. I began the search in earnest and without realising I’d set the intention and made my wish. I knew what I wanted. Three bedrooms, clean and light, a lovely alfresco outdoor area, lawn and garden so that Maggie my pup and I could enjoy, and most importantly a creative space for my writing and a room where I could run my business from home with ease.

Trusting the universe had my back was imperative, and within a short time, my dream property appeared. You see, this was my wish, and against all the odds it came true.

Firstly, there were over thirty applications. Secondly, my referee from my existing property was not forthcoming, and thirdly, I had a dog, and the landlord didn’t want a dog on the property.

There was also something very different I noticed about myself especially after I’d sent in that application which had never happened to me before. Usually I would have ruminated whether I’d get it or not and even in my mind I would have placed my furniture in the new home, and of course, there would be the usual anxious moments, but not this time.

My trust in the universe was stronger than it had ever been. Maybe it was the subconscious knowledge that I’d placed my wish and trusted it would come true.

All I can say is, thank you, thank you, thank you for this home which will not only benefit myself and Maggie but all of the wonderful clients and students I am privileged to work with daily.
