There’s A Ripple Effect

First Published in Sibyl Magazine June 2019

Something is inviting when I walk into my local café. Something happens to inspire my writing. Hard to believe amongst all of the chatter, coffee machine noise, clanging of plates and cutlery, children screaming, and then, oh then, the aroma that filters into my nostrils as the scent of delicious food is being cooked in the kitchen. Laughing, bliss.

Are you one of those people that love to observe others? Does it amuse you when a child screams loudly, and you see someone look over disapprovingly? Or are you that person? At that moment, I make no judgement, just observe, and continue to write, but I do so love to people watch. It’s as if each movement, sound, and look become apart of my story. How often do we find that in our life? How often do we speak someone else’s words or find ourselves entwined in another’s feelings? For many of us, if we are true to ourselves, and take a moment to witness ourselves, I’d say often. I know a bold statement!

We are influenced by our environment far more than we consciously realise. We are also affected by our environment more often than we’d like to admit. Sometimes, the experience can inspire and enlighten us, where other times, not so. Do you realise we have the power to affect change with how we are, what we say and do, and who we are? We are incredible human beings, and we have a responsibility not only to ourselves but also the impact we make upon this earth and those we share the air with. Phew… that sounds so heavy, and I know it may feel a little overwhelming, yet it could be as light and bright as you choose it to be, or as heavy as you want.

The magic begins in the heart – every seed of inspiration magically grows as you breathe life into it. When we are in alignment with our heart, our path opens unobstructed, and the universe breathes life into our dreams. What if your dreams could inspire many others? What if your smile directed to a stranger gave them hope? What if recycling your waste inspired change in another just by observing you? Wow, how exciting…

We are human, and all have bad moments, days and hardships, and I’m not saying ignore those. I am venturing to share that in those moments we take responsibility for ourselves and ensure that we set loving boundaries to nurture, love and be compassionate to ourselves, and be mindful not to project our pain and discomfort on others. Let us as a collective take responsibility for how we can influence our environment by our actions and our energy. Your actions always affect others. You are most definitely not responsible for another and how they feel, but you are responsible for how you act.

Be the observer and witness yourself, you have the ability and awareness to affect change. Go for it!

Until next time,

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,

Change is Within Us

ChangeGuardiansOftheLight

‘To change is to be willing to see things differently. Change is not without a new perspective.’

I sat writing with the Guardians of the Light late yesterday before running my advanced spiritual development class, and the above statement is what they shared for today’s blog.

Sitting today in contemplation of that quote I realised how often many have felt, (including myself) change happened to them, and at times we had no control over the outcome.

The quote by the Guardians of the Light empowers us to know that we are the change, the creator of change, and it’s all about our mindset!

It reminds me of Mahatma Gandhi’s quote: ‘Be the change you wish to see in the world.’

Love the way a simple statement can move us from feeling powerless to stand in our power.

Short but deep this week 😉

Until next week,

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,

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,

Supporting Change Through The Universal Shift

PENTAX Image

I love spring – It just opens my heart to see such beauty as nature’s richness and colour shines through. I love the feeling and warmth of the sun, along with the coolness of the breeze and those lovely warm days and cool nights for sleeping.
Bliss 🙂

Amongst all of this beauty there is a sense of each and every one of us opening to something new, a knowing is bubbling within and a connection of things to come, yet for some, the veil is not quiet open to allow you to see clearly the direction in which you will go.

Through this unknowing the universal law of cause and effect sets in motion and our internal primal fear may rise to create some discomfort such as; feeling anxious without knowing why, emotional outbursts or withdrawal, feelings of isolation, uncertainty, lack of passion, sense of being in limbo, light headed and ungrounded.

We could allow our feelings of discomfort to let fear drive us as we dig our heels in and try to stop this change from happening. However there is a greater force moving us, and the more we try to stop it, the harder it is to keep our balance.

Change is happening whether we like it or not …

The universal shift is taking place and the unique and authentic self is awakening to your soul’s purpose and truth, which is now more than ever expressing itself.

Love is the only true way of being, and the light within is illuminating

Let the shadow side of yourself and those pieces that had been hidden emerge, so they may be seen and acknowledged with acceptance, healing, growth and enlightenment, all with compassion and self-love.

Be mindful and watch and observe the signs and allow your journey to unfold.

Be in the flow …

Journal, and as you write ask your soul to reveal your next step. Be a great listener for when you stop the thinking and talking in your head you might be surprised as to what guidance you may feel, hear and see. Remember our loved ones and those benevolent beings are always around to support us. When we’re in our busyness it’s hard to be aware of the signs and be in sync with life and living.

Take responsibility for your actions, listen to what you say, and be mindful to think and speak with positive intention for everything is manifesting much quicker than ever before.

You may choose to seek counsel from professionals to help support your transition. It’s okay to ask for help, we are all in this together.

Spend time in nature for your heart yearns for this connection. Many of us have truly forgotten to take personal time to sit, listen and feel, forgetting that we all have the gift of personal insight.

Recall the last time your head, heart and feelings were in alignment and how it felt and served you well – let your heart and soul guide you to remember.

As the Guardians of the Light say, “Seeing through the eyes of your heart truly gives you a real view of your inner and outer world. Seeing through the eyes of your heart connects you to a greater more encompassing view.”

Until next time
