Who’s Leading the Way?

SibylSept

First Published Sibyl Magazine September 2018

Life is exciting, I mean it is. It reminds me of metres of yarn of all different textures and colours being knitted together to create an abstract piece of art.

I love that we can have the freedom within our western society to be who we want, and to change it on a whim if we choose. To dye our hair, change our clothing style and even our body shape. God knows many of us are doing that.

I wonder though, with all that aesthetic change does it change the internal workings of who we are? I mean we are the same person, after all, sometimes confident, others times vulnerable. Occasionally free thinking and other times tied up with restrictions and the busyness life can present.

Let me ask, “Do we appreciate the amazing spiritual being we are or do we allow the ego to lead the way and quieten the voice of the soul?” Many of us do just that, so how do we gain a balance, I mean do we want to move from reaction and fear or a place of wholeness and ease. I certainly know what I would choose.

To quieten the thoughts and the ego-self, firstly, we must acknowledge those thoughts and remind ourselves that the ego can be eager fierce and loud in its delivery. The soul, on the other hand, is likened to a monk that sits and watches with much wisdom and a great knowing, but it won’t interfere nor struggle with the loud booming voice of the ego. Mind you. It doesn’t give up. It patiently waits for an opportunity, and when it comes, it surprises with words of wisdom said to a friend, or even, a feeling so strong that it can’t be ignored and guides you in the direction of your path.

Ego is not all bad for it motivates us and moves us to aspire, and it challenges us to be the best we can. The soul, on the other hand, is the fire in the heart that sparks and enriches our desire to do great things with a purpose in this life not only for ourselves but also our world, fuelled by love.

The ego can entangle us in mixed emotion and sway us from seeing the truth. The soul’s voice can move us in a way that seems far too simple, and surprisingly it is.

Can you see through this journey that no wonder we get confused between our head and our heart?

A process my soul’s wisdom shared is to STOP and sit in silence, breathe out allowing all tension to melt away, then raise our attention to just above our head to what I call the higher mind while we have our hands placed lovingly on our heart. It’s through this focus that the head and ego quieten, and we hear the voice and wisdom of our soul and feel the spark of desire and purpose within turn into a flame.

Namaste

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,

The Divine Author Within

97C1FA39-B9D7-4860-AC21-47DC27A80FAD

First Published Sibyl Magazine June 2018 

We are all connected to our divine author. It is the very place of wisdom that supports us through our darkest moments and where inspiration and creativity flow.

I had been journaling for many decades, in fact, I remember having a small diary with a pretty motif on the front cover as a small child with an exclusive lock and key. Each and every day I wrote about my feelings and what was happening in my life. It was my closest friend. In that diary, I could say and share anything without consequence or judgement from others. I valued and protected it, hiding it in a secure place, and as one diary was filled, I saved my pocket money to buy another.

When writing, I found my truth became more evident as the divine author kicked in. Initially, the hurt or pain spoke through a deep dark crevice, and as it was brought into the light, it changed, and my truth appeared in all its glory. In reality, there was wisdom, and through that wisdom, there were solutions to support me as my divine author spoke through words on paper. For in the divine, we are in a place of unconditional love, a place filled with the influence of the teacher’s knowledge and wisdom.

Still, to this day, I love to journal. My journal helps me to express myself in a way that feels safe. It helps me to clarify my feelings and untangle the copious amounts of thoughts that flow in, often coloured by the subconscious mind. For the subconscious is only a record keeper of past experiences and will usually not be subjective to the here and now.

I love my divine author. I love the teachings that support me and my journey, and most of all I love that I can feel in wholeness by creating solutions and clearing the path of my mind to inspire the heart to lead.

I love the fact that inspiration will flow at any moment, and when it does, I hasten to get a pen and paper and find myself scribing a poem or a beautiful quote such as this one I did just the other day:

I see you, I feel you, I hear you
You are no different, no less
You are more, you are the light within the stream of energy
You are the night of the day
You are the centre of the Universe
For you are all that is
Loving, kind, generous and filled with an abundance of energy
You are the mountains, the streams, the air, the scents
You are me, and I am you
We are no different
We are one, entirely one
Feel, see, hear me for I am you and you are me.
I love you

To connect to your divine author, write and write some more. Purge all that is on your mind then, STOP. BREATHE and call upon your divine author. Then write beautiful soul.

Until next week,

Breaking Through the Illusion of Fear

BreakingThroughFear

Have you ever been nervous before an event? My hand’s up high and waving I have!

It was a beautiful sunny day, and I was on my way to be a guest speaker to a group of peers, and my heart was racing, hands were sweating, and my throat felt so dry and lumpy I kept swallowing trying to clear it.

Have you ever suffered social anxiety or anxiety of any sort … ME, ME, ME yep!

Breathe Maria I kept on saying, and then it came to me to ask my higher and wiser self to fill me with love and anchor me in peace.

Instantaneously, a quietness emanated from within along with a warmth and comfort which calmed my body as well as my mind. Then my voice broke through reciting the below words with such gentleness and clarity:

Love is the key to all that is me

Love is my nectar

Love is my nurturer

Love is my strength

Love is my power

I kept saying this mantra over and over again…

It was thirty minutes till I’d reach my destination. My voice had become stronger and louder, and I felt a swell of love as I embodied those words with such heart and harmony.

By the time I arrived, I was enchanted, in love, and in alignment with me. The speaking engagement flowed brilliantly, and I felt grounded yet light as a feather and shiny as a star.

It’s amazing what can happen when you ask your higher and wiser self to help, and even more amazing when your heart is so open and flowing all fear associated ailments just disappear.

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
