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,

It’s Time!

It's Time

It’s time! Time to really look within and feel the passion or lack of. Many have for far too long experienced a sense of loss of power and will. Today marks the beginning of a new and profound journey into the self. Yes, the worth of oneself!

As this journey began some time ago, many are now willing to put aside their personal grievances and stories that have held them lost in the past. The past hurt, the past trauma, and the past self. For all that is past has supported you to be who you are in this moment.

You are an enlightened human being if only you recognised the signs that have for so long been guiding you. Many of us have lived lives filled with fear, trepidation, and loss.

How would it feel for you TODAY if you chose to thank the past and move the learning into the present? Could you and would you?

The only one that has the power to do this is YOU. You are more than just a mixture of memories. You are an accumulation of learning, and with that, there is innate wisdom of that learning. How else does a child learn to walk without crawling first and then to fall many times? The child doesn’t give up for they are encouraged by their parent, as well, they have a strong urge to stand up and walk.

You have a strong urge to walk forward. It is only your head and thoughts that keep you chained to the past in a way that doesn’t serve you.

Believe in your power for you are empowered in all ways.

You have been given free-will which allows the freedom of choice. Use it wisely, and when you feel you fail yourself or others learn from it. Bring the learning with you and without hesitation stand up and continue walking.

Believe in the power of love for it fuels your energy.

Fear only degrades it and sucks the very life from you. We are not saying your fear is not unfounded. We are sharing that you have the power to tune into love and distil the fear. Each step draws you closer to your worth. Each step a remarkable miracle of life. Each step an example of the learning which will fuel the passion within to illuminate your worth and this journey you have chosen.

Blessings to all on this evening x

A message from the Guardians of the Light channelled by Maria Lacey

The energy of love surrounds you. Let not your worry or concern dull your senses and belonging within this wonderful world we have. You our child of light are one with all that is, was and will be.

Wake up … Wake up…. For LOVE flows from an everlasting stream of light.

Today, let the world know of what has and is to come.

Joy our children of earth.

JOY in all its glory for you are moving the energy of suffering and clearing the debris of the past. Through this transformation all is possible.

The energy of love is that which is within all beings, the energy of love is filled with a light so bright it lights every darkened corner and illuminates all that is. The energy of love is filled with many wonderful possibilities of today and what is yet to come.

Our children of earth, do not allow the past to taint the present for all is forgiven, all is forgotten and all will be held within an embrace of love felt with so much kindness and compassion all else will dissolve. Love is here to stay and all that is not will eventually be gone.

Do not analyse our words, but feel, connect and energise for you are now moving into a new paradigm which is held with much lighter energy.

BREATHE IN AND OUT, SLOW DEEP BREATHS for breath is life and life is breath held together by love.

Recognise the wisdom within these paragraphs and ignite the union of body and Christ.

Illuminate children of earth and know all will be well.

Awareness, Flow and Nature’s Gift

SibylOctober

First published in Sibyl Magazine October 2018

Something is soothing and healing when immersed in nature.

When I’m by the ocean, I feel invigorated, and especially love it when it’s blowing a gale and icy cold. My body, heart and soul are uplifted and excited when I see and hear the waves crashing against the rocks, and feel the ocean spray on my face. An urge rises, and I want to sing to my heart’s content, and don’t tell anyone, but I’ve been known to sit on a rock and do precisely that. Smiling, and always with open arms, my voice is directed out to the vast ocean, unrestrained and uninhibited, and encouraged by my inner child as a giggle erupts as she opens her eyes wide and smiles at the world with a cheeky grin.

Have you ever felt inspired to release your melody and let your inner child play in nature?

I’d just arrived home after walking Maggie my gorgeous pup along a small creek surrounded by Australian Native trees and dense bush. During my walk I wanted to be present, laughing, it helped with Maggie’s keen interest to sniff the ground and every blade of grass along the way.

It reminded me how I nurture and guide others through meditation. Especially when I take my class outside and teach mindfulness techniques while communing with nature as they breathe and harmonise the gifts that Mother Nature offers. Or, when seated inside, I guide their journey through visualisation and encourage my class to connect to a place of stillness within.

That day, I was in awe of nature’s beauty as I gazed along the creek bed. A tree had died and was now supported by another on the other side. Surprisingly, that picture reminded me of my community and those that care for me, and a comforting warmth spread through my body.  The glistening water in the creek caught my attention, luscious new growth was sprouting, and a vast range of colours tantalised my senses. I felt calm and peaceful and noticed my breath was deep and gentle, and fell in love, and felt nourished by the beautiful landscape.

Maggie became a little restless, so we continued our walk. Soon we met with a woman who carried a professional, sturdy camera in her hand. She was looking up into the tree, so I stopped and said hello. She explained that some kookaburras had nested in the hollow of the tree above and she was keen to capture a photo of the baby kookaburra. We began a conversation about sustainability, different cultures, and then our travels overseas. She’d been to many of the countries I had, and it was a delight to reminisce and share stories.

Later, I realised we had created our own melodic chatter as our energy interconnected and our vibration stretched and expanded into many continents. I wondered, “Was nature now listening intently to us, and did she feel and absorb the inspiration and heartfelt joy of our connection?” I hoped so.

With gratitude.

Until next week beautiful souls,

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,

Did I Ever Tell You – Poetry in Motion

ILoveYou2

Did I ever tell you how much I love you
Or did you hear it in the whispering of my thoughts
I could have, would have and should have
But the time was never right.

Today, I sit in silence for your not around for me to say
I love you, I truly love you
Please don’t go away.

Was it my pride that stopped me
Or the fear and pain of my past
I love you, I really love you
And now its too late for the time has passed

But maybe you will hear my thoughts
No matter where you are
For my love, I love you, and I’m not too far

Have a blessed week.

Until next time,
