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,

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

Soul to Soul

SilenceMariaLacey2011

We have wisdom within, and it is waiting for us to sit within the silence and open to the stirrings of our heart.

I sat within the silence and this is what I wrote ….

 

Picture drawn by Maria Lacey 2011

 

I want to step through a doorway without having to open the door.

I want to move with ease, not clouded by self-doubt, limiting beliefs and fear.

I want to recognise you, feel the purity of our souls connecting as we dance within a stream of love. Every smile, every touch, illuminating our light that shines brilliantly in appreciation with, and for, our connection.

I want to be in harmony and balance and let the laughter of my soul breathe light into the sacredness of this moment.

I want to ingest the beauty of our planet and all sentient beings. Walk with grace and appreciation upon this our Mother Earth.

I want my spirit to feel at ease within this flesh, so I may appreciate it, and treat it with respect as the body temple that it is.

I want to take responsibility for my actions, and be kind, compassionate, and forgiving of myself when my conscious and unconscious beliefs and conditioning move me to act from a fearful place.

I want to learn, and recognise the wisdom within each moment, even those that are uncomfortable.

I want to feel the richness of gratitude with every breath and movement of my body.

I want to be ONE and walk within the I AM Presence … an omniscient being connected to source.

From my soul to yours,

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
