Feeling into Life

adult-art-artwork-1081685 (1)

First published in Sibyl Magazine September 2019

There comes a time in our healing journey when we have enough awareness to FEEL into our life to create it.

What do I mean by that? It’s following the quiet voice of our heart and knowing the difference between our head and heart. In this ‘feeling space,’ past fears do not influence, its simplicity at its purest. It’s the connection of our heart and soul, leading us through love into self-discovery, adventure, curiosity, gratitude, and living and appreciating life in each moment.

It’s very different from our emotion for our emotion is connected to our ego and emotional body influenced by events in our life and can be erratic and fluctuate. It’s also not our physical mind for our mind is connected to our limited life experience. Imagine each experience made up of an event, emotion and belief placed in a file. Through our day, all of those files work in the background of our subconscious. They steer our way through default settings designed to protect us, yet, those very protections shape our future. Sometimes, these are wonderful, other times, patterns are repeated that undermine our happiness.

In March this year, I wrote an article titled, ‘Birthing New and Profound Love‘. In that article, I shared, “A deep longing poked its head out, something hidden for a long time. You see, I longed to be in a loving relationship, and was now ready to invite my partner into my life.”

Near the end of May, this man walked into my life. They say, “Be careful what you wish for.” It’s so true because our mind and past experience and the emotions connected to those can be as fresh today as they were yesterday. How quickly that mind can speak of past hurts and fears. How easy it would have been to listen and sabotage a new beginning, but I was not the woman of my past. I’d healed much and gained more. So, I decided to lean into my feeling. I focused my attention into my heart centre and felt into it. I was surprised because the feeling was powerful and spoke louder than my head chatter.

It was loving and peaceful, and said, “Maria flow with it, feel into it, be happy, and trust.”

From that day, I’ve flowed with my feeling and listened to the voice of my heart. There has been profound happiness, laughter and detachment from the outcome. Where ever this is going is not as important as to what FEELS TRUE NOW!

In life, we can be as free as we choose. Our physical mind and emotional body are essential, although influenced by the sum of our experience. Our heart and soul connection flows in alignment with our path and connects through our heart centre.

There is profound wisdom, and you have access to it. Your soul is filled with love and wishes you to expand and grow.

TRUST in your soul to lead and keep it simple. Don’t question but flow, and feel the peaceful stirrings of your heart.

Love you, namaste

A Compassionate Heart Breathes

Compassionate heart
First published in Sibyl Magazine August 2019

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. These are the words I say often. I love to hold my hands gently over my heart centre as I breathe deeply into my heart, feeling the gratitude with such warmth and comfort. How do you find comfort in your life? How do you connect to the gratitude within each breath, for breath is life, and is certainly something to be grateful?

Many times, over the years, I’ve experienced miraculous events. There have been times when I did not doubt that an earth angel visited to guide me, hold me, and in some cases, save my life. Everyday miracles abound, but do you notice them? Do you stop at that moment and acknowledge the gift? Or, do you shake your head and disregard that precious moment, that opportunity that could change the direction of your life.

We, as humans, have the gift of free-will. God, our creator, gave us this gift so that we can choose our path, our direction. What choices have you made that you either regret, judge, blame or shame? Do you carry that burden with you in the here and now? Does it weigh heavily on your heart, and does your mind consistently return to the past to only engage in further suffering?

I’m here to say, “Beautiful souls, please DO NOT carry this lower vibration for life is a series of experiences to learn and grow.” Breathe out… let it fall away and now breathe in for at this moment, free-will offers you an opportunity to make new and conscious choices. Choices made from the experience learnt, and the wisdom gained. There’s a saying; if you do what you’ve always done, you will get what you’ve always got. I say, change something small, and the outcome will surely differ.

YOU have the power to choose! Do not ever believe you are powerless, for powerless you will become.

Smiling, I can be so philosophical at times, and yet my heart bleeds when I see others suffer, and when I feel the suffering of the collective consciousness. Yes, I have also experienced many losses and had challenging times. I too have perceived I’ve made wrong choices, but I’m here to share that I’ve ALWAYS been guided back onto my path, and so are you if you only paused for a moment to see.

I’m learning just like you to TRUST in my journey and set myself free from my burdens. So that I may experience the simplicity that LOVE affords us when we move throughout our life being compassionate, kind and loving to ourselves. There’s a ripple effect when we do, and others will gain from our higher vibration, wisdom and actions.

The universe is an awesome wonder, and we are all so connected much more than we realise. Raise your vibration, and learn from your experience for your soul does not want you to suffer. Breathe in the gift of gratitude, and feel the peace and comfort.

Love you ❤

Until next time, breathe easy, love more and laugh often.

Returning Home

And she said goodbye as she walked away with a smile.
No longer chained to her past
No longer carrying her pain
She had returned home to the soft comfort of her heart

Until next time, with love and blessings,

The Doorway to Wisdom

clouds-door-doorway-1475234

There is an innate wisdom, a doorway, that is filled with unimaginable knowledge.

How many times have we spoken words of wisdom to a friend or colleague that seemed to come out of nowhere? I’m here to assure you that I believe many. So where does that wisdom come from? Some may say God others the Universe, maybe even ourselves.

I believe it comes from all the above. Each of us has a soul, the very spirit that is in every atom of our physical body. Our soul is accessed through the gateway of our heart chakra, an energy centre which is connected to Source, God, the Universe whatever you choose to name it. Through that gateway, we are expansive and connected to a stream of light, which opens us to the Library of Knowledge. Some may say the akashic records, either way, we can access knowledge and wisdom far beyond our understanding in this life.

Many of us unconsciously access this when our heart is activated through a deep feeling for another’s discomfort, and those words of compassion and inspiration flow with ease.

Our love opens a portal of wisdom which gushes from the depths of our heart into the light of day.

Don’t you just love that! We are SOOO amazing, yet so unconscious to the magic that happens often.

Love is the key to accessing all that is me, an unlimited being. A soul incarnated into this physical body onto this Earth.

Love is the key to opening the doorway to our soul and to awakening our consciousness.

I know, how easy is that, or not!

Our personality/ego, the expression of our conditioning and the affected emotional and mental bodies can often thwart that very connection. Triggering a disruption, a doubt, a confusion, an internal war between the mind, which has been conditioned by the data received through our experiences in this life, and the purity of the heart, which may have felt jaded from those experiences. This can cause us to close down the feeling aspect, that real intelligence that is connected to our heart and opens the doorway to the soul.

In glimpses, we notice those moments, those miracles as words gently unfold from our tongue and caress another’s pain.

Wouldn’t it be a magical life if we could access that knowledge consciously and at will? I’m here to share that we can. So how do we do that?

Many ways will support this, but first, we need to align ourselves with the higher mind, the intellectual, intuitive mind connected to our higher self and vibrating at the same resonance as our soul.

Sit in silence, breathe and raise your awareness to just above your head, this is where the higher mind sits. Notice your physical mind calm and sense your connection to your heart centre. Sit with it and become familiar to this feeling, for this is the beginning, the beginning of you accessing, at will, your soul and all it offers.

With love, namaste

Shine Your Light Beautiful Soul

BreakingThroughFear

First published in Sibyl Magazine April 2019

Have you ever noticed after it’s rained a rainbow can miraculously appear? After the rain, the air is filled with raindrops. Each raindrop is filled with a prism of light and when kissed by the sun will create a magnificent ray of colour in the form of an arc, and it always makes me smile and fills me with hope. What about you?

Recently during the mercury retrograde, I’d found my emotions challenged. Depths of sorrow filtered their way up through the layers and into the light of day. Initially, they caused sadness then fleshed out a deep hurt followed by a release of tears.

A prism of light shone through those tears for much was revealed to empower me to heal.

It’s an interesting notion when we’re going through our own personal healing crisis. For many, the clouds become darker, and instead of rain and sunshine, there is thunder and lightning that looms its power over us. We may find ourselves limited in our thinking and also difficulty in seeing through the mass that overshadows us. Thus, creating an inner struggle as our energy leeches from us leading to exhaustion.

Through my own personal challenges over the years, I’ve come to understand the importance of allowance and to release and to let my emotion flow in a safe and nurturing environment.  I’ve also welcomed the discovery of release, and I’m excited that we as a collective are evolving as our cells become lighter and brighter as we heal and move into a more enlightened and simpler feeling state.

Emotion is energy in motion, and we can choose to hold onto it tightly with rigidity and stubbornness, or we can just simply let it flow and wash through. Smiling, what’s the worst that could happen?

During those times when you feel overshadowed, I’m here to share my friend it’s in that very moment when you need to shine your inner light brighter then you’ve ever done before. So how do we do this? Let me share how I do this.

Place your hands lovingly over your heart chakra in the middle of your chest as if giving yourself a big hug. Feel the warmth as you connect with your heart centre, the gateway to your soul, and now illuminate your light as if the sun is within and its rays are radiating outwardly.

You are connected to an infinite source of light, let it shine through your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies as it burns away all that doesn’t serve your highest good and fuels the lighter emotion to support positive outcomes. Then, feel yourself smiling with gratitude and say, “Thank you, thank you, thank you.”

My greatest gift to myself is to shine and radiate my light. My greatest gift to humanity is to share that with the world. My gift to you is this simple process, and I trust it lightens your heart, fills you with love, and opens you to greater possibilities.

Namaste beautiful soul

Until next time,

My Heart Speaks

SibylApril2019InsideStory

First published in Sibyl Magazine April 2019

I often bring myself back to the fact I’m a spiritual being having a human experience. When I consider spirituality, I don’t see it as separate from my physical journey on this earth plane.

In fact, embodying the whole of my mind, body, soul and heart empowers me to experience life in all aspects. For I am the child, teenager, adolescent, adult, woman, mother, sister, friend. I’m also the healer, the nurturer, the seer, the star child, the wise sage and shaman. I AM ALL THAT I AM.. a child of God, connected within a stream of light, born of love, conceived of light and intended to experience all that IS.

Today’s a beautiful warm day here in Australia. The sun is shining, and I’m sitting outside enjoying its warmth. I’ve asked for inspiration and received so much more.

Today, I’ve been greeted by a dragonfly, had a ladybug land on me, enjoyed the hungry chirping of newborn birds in a nest in one of my trees. Had a colourful butterfly fly around while my gorgeous little dog Maggie slept on my lap while we rested for a short time.

These were my inspiration for this article, which I’m delighted and thankful for. Seeing the dragonfly was quite unusual for it generally flies near water. The Dragonfly symbolises change, transformation, adaptability, and self-realisation. This change has its source in mental and emotional maturity and understanding the deeper meaning of life.

It’s been a long, long while since I’ve seen a ladybug and the ladybug is the embodiment of luck, good fortune and prosperity leading one to experience the joys of life and living life to the fullest.

The butterfly is also about transformation, change, joy and colour. Laughing do you see a theme here?

The last time I saw newborn chicks nesting in a tree was when I was a small child, and I can only imagine it meant my hopes and dreams were ready to take flight.

My journey of fifty-eight years on this path has not always been easy. In fact, there have been multiple traumas throughout my life. On reflection, these have served me well in my vocation for I connect from a place of knowing and compassion, and my gentle soul is always intact. I’ve been inspired to share that our past is just that. Don’t let it define you, allow it to shape your experience, for our quest is to embrace love and allow the authentic truth of our soul to emerge.

Throughout my journey, I’ve come to understand it’s the simple things that bring me the greatest of joys, and simplifying my choices brings me peace and happiness. As I listen intently to my heart and walk a path of ‘feeling my way’ rather than ‘thinking my way’, I’ve released so much indecision and tension creating more harmony in my life.

Life is to be lived not accumulated. We have the innate abilities to create and manifest a life well lived. Recently, I found a quote online. Unfortunately, the author is unknown, and I’d love to share it with you.

“Life is like a piano. The white keys represent happiness, and the black keys show sadness. But as you go through life’s journey, remember that black keys make music too.”

In closing, embody all of you, seek within and allow your heart to express and light your path. From experience life in its simplicity will create from one synchronised moment to the other. When we’re present, we will notice the signs and take heart from those gifts, and happiness will be our reward.

Until next time,
