The Journey Through to Love

Love

First published in Sibyl Magazine November 2019

People come into our life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. Each has its purpose and opportunity for growth.

In my article, ‘Feeling into Life‘ I shared how I’d opened to love and invited a partner into my life. I mentioned how easy it was for past fears to crawl into the present, but I’d grown and was not the woman of my past. I’d made a conscious choice to surrender and ‘feel into’ this relationship. This rewarded me with strength and clarity as I heard clearly the voice of my heart as it said.

“Maria flow with it, feel into it, be happy, and trust.”

Little did I know what that exactly meant. For it wasn’t about trusting this man, or trust in the relationship with this man. It was about TRUSTING MYSELF! Yes, believing I was safe and could express and communicate with confidence my feelings, needs, wants and dreams.

Red flags were highlighted as they flashed like neon lights to offer me guidance. They were an opportunity to question, reflect, feel into my body and heal any uncomfortable emotions that may have arisen from my past. Also, to note when they weren’t mine and lovingly voice if required.

God bought me a man who made me laugh, showed me that I’m a kind, loving and compassionate woman, and was ready and worthy of great love and a companion to share my life.

God also showed me how far I’d healed that broken child who had her power taken away many times, which caused her grief, loss, confusion and despair. She no longer quivered inside when anger was projected at her. She was able to shield herself, detach from taking on someone else’s pain and lovingly hold the energy for them.

I remembered saying, “Where ever this is going is not as important as to what FEELS TRUE NOW!”

In this relationship, I remained grounded in the present and true to myself. I observed each experience with curiosity, compassion and love. My soul led the way, and I listened and did not question its purpose for I was fully flowing. Every choice was made to honour and love myself for in doing so, my heart opened like a lotus, pure and free.

This relationship tested me, and I celebrate today the gifts given. We are no longer together. Ahh, it was for a season and a reason, and what an amazing ride it was. This journey healed further many of my past relationships. It showed my inner child and me I could stand in my power with grace, strength and peace. My fears dissipated and opened me further into self-love and freedom.

By sharing my journey, I want to challenge you to LOVE YOURSELF MORE. Recall your power from those you have given it away to and breathe life into your dreams. For you are truly worthy of great love. It all begins with you.

Love you x

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 Gift of the Messenger

SibylNov2018

First Published in Sibyl Magazine November 2018

There are events in our life that transpire to open us to deep and soulful healing, and this was one of them.

Within my heart of hearts, I’d wished for that day to come, and it did. I was meeting with someone I’d loved all their life and had been estranged from for some years. We met for only a short hour, but then, all came crashing down, and my heart cracked open leaving a huge crevice.

Initially, the hurt and pain were intense. So much so, in glimpses, I’d felt helpless and without hope. The event wasn’t the cause it was the catalyst that triggered multiple traumas I’d endured and had shelved, which flooded into my consciousness. The overwhelming emotion felt stuck. I could feel the tidal wave within, but I’d gone numb, and in shock, my mind froze, until, I chose consciously to release and allow the healing to begin.

That was a pivotal moment, and enlightening choice for it generated an outpouring of love and gratitude for that person because she was the ONE. The messenger, the gift.

It was time to set myself free, and I gave myself permission to TRULY heal those traumas. Several months later my relationship with that person opened like a lotus with such purity and renewal, and a new beginning was now possible.

Things had changed because I’d changed. Patterns had altered and were still in their adjustment stage. Supportive and loving beliefs had embedded within my consciousness, and the subconscious limiting beliefs and sabotaging habits had been cleared and re-set.

Through a profound awareness, I witnessed consciously my actions, thoughts and movement moment by moment, and day by day. I sensed my healing and the newness forming, but I noticed unconscious patterns and how quickly I reverted to the previous default behaviour. Yes, just like our computer settings we do have subconscious defaults.

In those moments I stopped midstream and felt within, and my realisations came quickly and with acknowledgement and understanding. I didn’t berate myself, in fact, I congratulated myself for the recognition and then felt empowered to choose between the old way of being and the new and more conscious way.

The old way, had me moving through life in survival mode. It was understandable because the innocence of the child was taken so young through physical abuse, manipulation and narcissism. The realisation was that even though, she was an intelligent, compassionate child of the stars she had never felt good enough and worthy, which filtered into her adult life. It undermined her growth and happiness with busyness, doing and should.

The new conscious way, I felt empowered, good enough, and worthy. It motivated me to thrive and to create through love, SELF-LOVE.

Simplicity, gratitude and a soft focus are my way forward. Each movement, I ask, “Is this loving me?” For I now walk with purpose upon this earth with a renewed passion to restore hope into the hearts of many. Including mine.

Until next week,

Maria’s Musings

2AB45D5A-30CC-473C-A649-69F735E0FE9B

Creativity flows in many ways. For me when I write, I love to frequent local cafés to inspire my muse, that wise, sometimes humorous, other times poetic and loving self.

Have you ever felt so grateful that your heart expanded and shone a light so bright all you could do was bathe in the euphoria?

Well, that’s happening right now as I sit on the deck at my local cafe surrounded by nature. Laughing, I’m so pumped that my heart wants to sing out loud. Hmm, restrain yourself Maria you don’t want to shock those here at the cafe.

In my musings today I wanted to share how we have the ability to make choices because we were born into this realm with free will. This means we are empowered at all times to create from a loving and wholesome place. Sometimes, life can throw the occasional curveball but we have the ability to catch it, and either throw it back or put it down for a while allowing time to process and embrace any teachings.

Eckhart Tolle in his wisdom says, “Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at the moment.”

The energies, planetary alignments and the inner emotional turmoil have been wild of late. Everything is shifting and it seems the Universe is prompting us, and to be honest sometimes even poking us. It’s time to release the old, heal the pain body and move into a higher more aligned vibration through self-love and self-healing.

YOU ARE IMPORTANT and so are your dreams, your life and all that you are can be, and will be.

It’s time to honour, acknowledge, accept and move on.

Today, I was speaking with a friend and shared how important it is to simplify and move out of the multi-skill mindset, and become one with the present for it’s gifted to us right now!

Our lives, our minds and our world have become far too chaotic.

It’s time to choose your battles, release what you can’t control, and bring your focus back into what makes you happy.

This raises our vibration and expands our awareness opening up the opportunity for solutions to appear.

When we have a soft focus, and a gentle loving breath, clarity appears and opens the door … halleluja.

Eckhart Tolle in his wisdom says, “Sometimes letting things go is an act of far greater power than defending or hanging on”.

Trust you enjoyed this week’s musings.

Until next week much love,

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 Intensity of the Energy at this Time

It’s full on! Have you experienced recently any of these symptoms; headaches, tension in your shoulders and back, tiredness, restless sleeping, vivid dreams, eyes watering, nausea, light-headed, food sensitivity and feeling overly sensitive causing self-worth issues and disconnection?

BREATHE yes, I mean it, BREATHE my friend

The Guardians of the Light share:

Universally the energy is powerful and filled with gaseous balloons that are creating an illusion so that we do not see the vision of love that is within this realm. Children of earth love the energy of light, fill your vessel from within and breathe in the freshness of mother earth through your feet and allow the blue ray of healing to enter into your cells.

Interesting, on Tuesday evening when I was teaching a spiritual development class. I guided my students through a process and asked mother earth to breathe fresh, clean energy into the centre of our circle, translucent blue energy flowed up from mother earth and into the room, and we were directed to breathe it in. The experience felt healing and energising as our cells tingled with delight. We all opened our eyes with a smile and OMG!

You too can connect and call upon this energy. We are all divine beings connected to each other, and we have the power and resources in nature and universally through divine guidance and our higher self to create change and raise our vibration to re-energise, re-balance and envision love.

Love you, and I trust this week’s blog is supportive and inspires you to STOP and take a breath. Please don’t go into fear of what’s wrong with me or find yourself charging through life and getting nowhere.  You are not alone, seek the guidance you need to inspire a healthy mind, body and spirit.

Until next week,

A Leap of Faith

SibylMarch2018

First Published in Sibyl Magazine March 2018

I woke this morning, and as my eyes opened, I heard my voice with such a gentle tone saying, “It’s time to move.” Every part of me felt at peace, and in my heart, I knew what that meant.

It was time to sell my home and move once again in the direction of the unknown, yet this time was very different. It was bigger so much bigger, for I was to leave the security I had created over the past seventeen years. A sanctuary I knew was safe. A place my children had grown and a place where I flourished and ran my holistic business, a place called home.

Realistically, at the age of fifty-two, it felt huge! Even though I didn’t own my home and had a mortgage, it was my only form of financial security.

There was no-one in my future to save me financially, estranged from my family, a child bought up with physical abuse and narcissism there was a reality for my sense of safety. Though I knew, I had to take this leap of faith, and with an incomplete picture, I stepped onto that path.

Within a month my home was sold, I gave away most of my possessions, jumped into my little car, and set off house sitting.

Soon after, I realised the larger picture and why my soul had guided me to experience without the busyness to distract me. It was vital for me to face and conquer my greatest fear, and that was the fear of being unsafe, vulnerable and in pain. My home was my sanctuary, and I’d created a safe and secure nest, where my pain and vulnerability could be protected! By letting everything go, I had forced myself to honestly see me and run head on and face that fear, and see it for what it was, an illusion.

It’s been four years. I’ve gained wisdom in knowing I can feel safe and secure no matter where I’m living, and now fully understand that my home is really where my heart is.

Also, I’ve discovered that I’m strong and can set clear boundaries, be flexible, tolerant and patient. I’m genuinely trusting my intuition and guidance because it has always shown me the way, history had taught me that, even when I chose to ignore it. I’ve become friends with my vulnerability and love the softness I feel being close to it.

To allow oneself to be vulnerable is a strength, but the first step takes courage.

I’m not advocating you do this; it’s quite radical. I’m sharing my truth of my soul’s journey to heal and grow, and how discomfort can breathe new life into us if we only STOP and feel into it, listen, appreciate, process and transform.

Holding onto the past sucks, moving into the present and creating from a healed state is liberating.

Do I regret my choice? Not at all, because I trust my soul loves me, and my heart knows.

Until next week,
