Creativity Comes at The Most Unexpected Times

ShadowDo you find your creative muse flows at the most unexpected times?

My own shadow as seen on the sand in this picture inspired the below poem. At the time, I felt so connected to all of me, nature and Mother Earth; it just spilt out. A creative burst you might say.

Oh, and I do have two arms the other was taking the photo 😉

SHADOW

Today I acknowledge love and accept the shadow side of me.

Today I am ONE.

In love, with love, for I AM love.

An embodiment of all elements,

And in this moment, I am gifted with

Sun, Air, Earth and Water.

A loving reminder to feel, breathe, ground and flow.

With gratitude

Until next week,

Why Do We Fear To Live?

Crystal Ball NatureWhy DO we fear to live?

In some ways, it’s easy to be scared. It gives us an excuse not to fail.

But fail at what?

Living?

Depending on your belief, and if you believe we only live one life. Then why are we wasting it!

If you believe in reincarnation, why are we playing it safe?

Wouldn’t you like to skim across the ocean and also dive in and experience with all senses? What about creating a gratifying life filled with purpose, happiness, passion, prosperity, and experiences that honour this lifetime? Imagine the wisdom and knowledge you could gain through this expansion and freedom to not only enrich your life but also enrich the whole of humanity.

The movie The Matrix was all about unplugging from the illusion that humanity was living a full and conscious life, yet in reality, they were in a dream state. It wasn’t a Free-thinking society. It was orchestrated, planned and controlled.

WAKE UP … We have been living far too long unconsciously moving through life based on conditioning, not dissimilar to The Matrix.

The Guardians of the Light say; dear ones move into the light, allow the illusion to fall away. The veil of fear is dropping, and that is why Children of Earth you are feeling so much discomfort. It is time to move into the stream of love. It is time to recognise that living and breathing on this Earth star is your right. It is time for you to understand that many benevolent beings are supporting you to be conscious and shift into a new paradigm of heaven on Earth.

Trust our Children of Earth you are meant to understand the uniqueness of your individuality. The truth is within and is rising. No longer can you hide from yourself. No longer can you deny your purpose. It is time to emerge into the light Children of the Earth for you ARE becoming conscious.

Surprisingly, I have come to understand through my experiences that the fight and flight primal survival mechanisms have been holding us in a pattern. They feed the energy of fear, and many in our world seek to keep us in that state.

As we as a human race become more conscious, we begin to recognise this obsolete stream flooding our veins and polluting our mind. We are breaking through the illusion and unplugging from the unconscious conditioning, moving into a more peaceful inner state as we unlock the creative, unrestricted, and loving soul that we are. Filled with passion for life, seeing through clear eyes, and loving ourselves deeply and feeling with every breath, our heart, head and higher mind become aligned. We feel into our life, and we move based on those feelings, a knowing is present, and flow and synchronicity lead the way.

We speak our truth lovingly and honestly. Not based on fear, hidden agendas or past conditioning. We become flexible in our thinking mind, and our actions are more compassionate and forgiving of ourselves and others because we know we are still learning and new to this evolution and shift of consciousness.

As the veil lowers our own fears, patterns and conditioning are being presented for us to heal. It’s not easy and we may feel lost, alone, emotional, ungrounded and uncertain during this time. We may regress momentarily and hide behind the veil, and that’s okay, but soon your beautiful loving soul will push through and the Universe will conspire for you to face your fears and see them as they truly are, nothing more than fear itself. Then you will feel the strength and courage from within to shine your light and immerse yourself in the stream of love.

Today I wrote on my Facebook page the following:

During these times of energetic shifts and planetary alignments. We need to be grounded and attentive to what we are seeing, listening to, saying, thinking and doing.

Several times a day take deep and loving breaths, move your body and be conscious in your life.

Until next week,

Voice of the Soul

-ancient-meditation-architecture-234541April last year I contracted a serious case of Dengue in Bali and I’d only been back in Australia a couple of weeks. I was listless, there was no room in my brain due to the encompassing fog that delighted in filling every corner.

In this week’s blog, I wanted to share a poem that I wrote at that time, you know one of those spontaneous downloads that you have to grab a piece of paper quickly and jot it down or else it’s gone forever.

Due to my illness, I was surprised anything even got through! Maybe it was spirit sharing with me, or the depths of my soul speaking.

Evolution – Author Maria Lacey

When we strip away the social constructs
The greed, the fear, the promise of power, the need to conform.

The illusion shatters

The insipid programming to move in line with a polluted stream that will never quench your thirst.
That keeps you searching outside of you

Away from the truth.
Further, further away.

Falls away

The shell cracks and the light once again is set free
Aah I can breathe

I feel with every cell,
I have a knowing beyond my experience.

Love, breath
Love fills me to overflowing.

There is no longer a thirst to quench

I’m at peace

Until next time, much love to you all

Gratitude, Love and Universal Guidance

girl-praying-handsBlogEach morning I wake and whisper, thank you, thank you, thank you, and I’m grateful to Dr. Wayne W. Dyer for that inspiration.

I’ve always said a gratitude prayer but these two words said three times, seem to invoke such an enriching feeling of warmth it makes me smile no matter what is happening in my life.

Thank you ..   Thank you ..   Thank you ..

Commencing my morning in gratitude opens my heart to the wonderful possibilities this day will hold. The day seems brighter, those I connect with seem more loving, smiling, maybe that’s because I feel love and express through love.

In 2010, I had a near death experience during surgery, and surprisingly, in 2016 I also had another near-death experience caused by an infectious mosquito whilst overseas in Bali.

Within two months of the first near-death experience I felt the urgency to write. I had been writing in a journal for years, documenting my travels overseas, writing to gain clarity and to release the consistent thoughts that bounced around in my head at times. But that day was different. I went into my study and found a new exercise book, feeling as though I was at the beginning of something.

In my art room, my place of inspiration and relaxation, I sat comfortably in a lovely old armchair, gifted to me by a good friend. I relaxed my body and, with pen in hand, wrote the date. I sensed a gentle touch on my shoulder, then an energy moved through my arm and into my hand. I let go and allowed my hand to do the writing!

That day marked the beginning of my whole world expanding.

It was the day the Guardians of the Light began channelling through me, and although I have struggled at times with my own lack of self-worth, I mean really, who am I to share this with the world?  Then, I realised after much internal debate, who am I to question a higher source who have shown me nothing but love, patience and knowledge, for they are a collective of divine beings from the universal source of light here to teach us not only to simply exist but to awaken us to love.

The Guardians of the Light have opened me to the possibility of a deeper more profound wisdom. It has awakened a freedom not felt or remembered in this life, and there is a knowing and profound heart connection to source.

Mind you, they have challenged my thinking, beliefs and conditioning, all with so much love, smiling, and sometimes tough love.

In my first book, One Path, Many Lights I share the beginning of that journey and some of their eternal wisdom and their love for the human race and what they call the earth star, our planet, Mother Earth.

Today I will share a small snippet of what is yet to come in my writings here on my blog.

A message from the Guardians of the Light

To choose love is to live a life free of fear
To choose love is to see only through love

Our children of earth, the energy of love knows no boundaries. This energy flows so pure and with such strength that your soul yearns to be within it. Yet your head and mind including those many thoughts maintain a connection to what is, what was and what will ever be.

This connection is not necessarily pure for it has been created on a human level, infused with fear and conditioning. This is the understanding that is required. For when you are in the purity of love, every cell within the human body flows with ease and will create a fullness of energy and life force.

Until next time, much love to you all

When Writing Heals

MariaBookSigning

I was reading over some of the Facebook posts I had made during the writing of my book One Path, Many Lights and the below post really touched me and I felt compelled to share it today on my blog.

Facebook note – 5-1-14

I have been sitting at my computer most of today writing my book and have added a new chapter which I never thought I would EVER share in written form.

I have also deleted some writing which was important before, but not so now. I have come to realise this book is like an abstract painting. Layers upon layers, imitating life.

Each stroke of the brush has its own unique colour and shape, all transpiring to create a picture, something visual that one can see and explore. Each person will look at this picture and feel and experience something different and unique to them. Each opinion will vary depending upon their own personal experience, expression and taste.

The timing is right, and I am willing to explore further where it takes me, and no longer fear where it may lead.

The journey continues xx

The new chapter I was talking about was Chapter Eleven – Through the Eyes of the Child … A chapter while writing healed further the inner child and empowered the adult to see with clear and wiser eyes. It offered my readers an opportunity to know me warts and all. It told the story of how often we move through life being driven by unconscious fears and beliefs that weave throughout our life often sabotaging our happiness and freedom.

They say that knowledge is power and it truly is, especially if felt as well as processed with our thinking mind. Writing surprisingly can do that for you and more. It can open you to a higher perspective of you, a deeper more profound soul connection.

Have you ever experienced a profound shift through writing in a journal?

I loved the line, the timing is right, and I am willing to explore further where it takes me, and no longer fear where it may lead. This line is as relevant today as it was then. It can relate to anything within your life – it opens up to possibility setting you free from self-limitations, and offering trust to step up and show you the way.

We all have challenges in our lives, experiences that stretch and move us. Take notice, listen to your body and inner voice, and heal through writing in your journal. Then embrace the lesson, gather the knowledge, put it in your tool box, get into your car and take the driver’s seat.

Don’t let your unhealed feelings and unconscious drive you.

There is profound wisdom within, and happiness flows when we are present and conscious in our life.

Love you x

Coffee and Cheesecake

Have you ever had someone say something to you and you thought, how did they know that about me?

On this occasion, I was attending a weekend conference and one of the attendees who I’d only just met stated as I was leaving.

“Make sure you go and have a coffee and cheesecake this week Maria.”

My head turned sharply towards him, I was a little taken back and nervously laughed because cheesecake was actually my favourite dessert and how did this almost stranger know.

“Why?” I asked.

    “Because you work hard and you deserve it!”

I remembered smiling curiously at him, then saying goodbye as I made my way to the carpark.

It was Monday and I’d finished my morning seeing clients and that afternoon I’d planned to write my newsletter and do some well overdue book work but for some reason I kept hearing his voice in my head. Make sure you go and have a coffee and cheesecake this week Maria.

I’d tried to shrug it off but the voice only became louder. It happened to be a beautiful sunny Autumn day so rather than keep to my schedule I decided to listen and head up into the mountains.

I travelled through Silvan a well-known farming district and picked some brightly coloured fresh flowers from the growers, then drove into Monbulk a delightful country suburb thinking I’d catch up with friends and then we could walk to a local café and enjoy a coffee and you know it, cheesecake.

I drove down the main street in Monbulk and it was really busy and no available car parks. That seemed so odd as it was only Monday, not normal for this quiet country suburb of Melbourne. So, I continued and cut across the mountain.

I drove into Olinda a quaint little place and immediately found a park. Hooray! This was meant to be. I parked, jumped out of my car and strolled along the main street casually popping into stores and browsing.  I stopped in front of a wine bar and thought maybe they would have coffee but then decided they probably wouldn’t have any cheesecake. So, turned around and decided to go to a café across the road.

I was about to step off the path onto the road and felt a warm breeze past my left shoulder and turned to my left to see what it was. My eyes were drawn to a sign saying The Pie STOP. I stood at the curb then thought, maybe they will have coffee and cheesecake.  

I walked along the street and up the stairs and through the doorway to see on my right a beautiful cabinet with a big delicious cheesecake inside. Smiling to myself I walked towards it and a friendly mature aged woman served me as I ordered, yep you’re onto it, coffee and cheesecake.

I sat at a quiet table nearby and waited, then wondered.

Really Maria you don’t even feel like cheesecake right now. Coffee oh yeah, but not cheesecake.

While my thoughts were doing their thing, you know having a private conversation. I looked up to see someone that I loved very much and had been apart from for some time. My daughter came walking down the stairs. She immediately noticed me and to both of our surprise we came together in a loving hug.

It still brings tears to my eyes recalling that day, and of course the beautiful stranger at the conference who was the messenger. Did he know? I have no idea, but I’m incredibly grateful I chose not to ignore his message nor the signs along the way that gently nudged me to that very moment.

Looking back, I see how easily it could have been to guilt myself into doing my bookwork and writing my newsletter. I could also have persisted in finding a carpark in Monbulk and never ventured onto Olinda.

I’m grateful I chose to not think too much and flow with the energy of that day, which seemed to show me the way.

I mean really, coffee and cheesecake bought me together with my estranged daughter, and you know what? Maybe, I had been working hard and did deserve it.

Bye Bye 2016 and Welcome 2017

bye-bye-2016aYes the countdown has begun!

I can’t tell you how wonderfully excited and blessed I’ve felt with what I’ve achieved in 2016. Gratis it was a difficult personal year but WHAT A YEAR!

I remembered last year in my blog at this time I wrote:

For 2016 my word is TRUTH – Seeing the truth in my actions, thoughts and feelings. And with loving intention I will speak my truth with authenticity.

When we put an intention out into the Universe, it will collaborate, and create many experiences to bring forth that intention. I’m deeply thankful many opportunities were presented to me this year to heal, learn and grow.

It is said that 2016 was a nine year. A year of endings and a year of finding our voice.

Sadly, many beautiful souls also left our planet. I’d like to think they will play a special part in the greater plan to support us and our evolution.

As we grow in consciousness to SELF heal and SELF love, our relationship with ourself and others will organically shift.

Some will move out of alignment and others will move into alignment to where we are now. This is a normal and natural part of life.

When we act from a more conscious state, we become aware of our subconscious wounds, old patterns and beliefs that sabotage our actions. Having this awareness gives us a choice to change. Acting upon that change, then creates a vibrational shift not only within us, but within our world.

I wrote this prayer to encourage you to own, celebrate, release and accept your growth and the changes that have occurred. And especially be thankful to those relationships, including the subconscious behaviours, which may have caused discomfort and pushed you to a greater self awareness.

Divinity Prayer – Author Maria Lacey

Thank you for journeying with me on my path.

Thank you for the reflections, the lessons, the understandings, and the revelations.

We met for a reason, to learn and evolve.

Each of us played an important role.

Everything living moves and changes, we are no different.

Together let’s celebrate our changes,

And move beyond the past into the here and now.

I release our karmic ties with love,

Go with peace.

As I set you free I also set free ME.

2017 is a number one year, a year of new beginnings, new projects and new energy.

I’ve thought a lot about it, and my word for 2017 is:

SIMPLICITY – to have 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.

What is your word for 2017?

May you enjoy the remainder of 2016, set your intentions for 2017, and may the Universe supply you with an abundance of love to support you in creating all that you desire.

With love and a generous hug,
