Magical Blessings in Hawaii

SibylAugust2018Issue

First Published Sibyl Magazine August 2018

Recently in Hawaii, a place filled with mana, the energy of the ancient, an essence felt like a gentle cloud lifting your spirit. We landed in Honolulu and then took a flight to Kauai the smallest island of the Hawaiian group, yet the oldest.

Several hours after we landed Pele the volcano on the Big Island erupted. After a discussion with the local natives, they expressed no surprise nor concern. They understood Pele and had a deeper more profound connection which gave me confidence that all would be well.

On my second morning, I was enjoying breakfast by the ocean with a couple of friends when a native in spirit came to me. We began a conversation, unbeknown to my friends sitting at the table, and he asked if I would do a ceremony on the beach, which I agreed. I have to say that I didn’t know what that would look like but trusted I would know at the time.

That afternoon we went off to peruse the island, and the next morning I went down to the ocean alone and began to walk along the beach. The sun shone with such warmth, the sea breeze gently kissed my skin, and the salt air made me feel alive and happy. The ocean was magical, and then I stumbled across a seal sunning itself looking delightfully peaceful. This was the place!

Feeling a sense of excitement, I took off my sandals and walked into the water up to my ankles, then raised my hands, and as I did the native spirits surrounded me. I unleashed my soul’s voice, a light language I have sung since a small child. Then I heard them as they sang in the same language, a first for me, and my heart burst open with joy. The energy was electrifying yet soothing as we harmonised together, and I soon lost myself in it. For how long I have no idea, but what I can say is I was abruptly woken out of my state by a rush of icy cold water between my legs. OMG. I looked down to see the water was lapping at the top of my thighs. Had I walked in further?

I moved back out of the water and onto the wet sand, feeling a little dazed. Then my feet sunk into the compacted sand covering my ankles. Then, thump, thump thump. A steady beat pounded hard under my feet, the sand around moved with the intensity, tears began to flow for I felt Mother Earth’s heartbeat. I gently closed my eyes feeling one with her, a sacred time, never to be forgotten.

Previously, I’ve been compelled to travel to far and distant places to heal the land, and the people, and be the key to open portals and vortexes. This time was very different for it was a gift and blessing for me. A past life known about yet confirmed in greater detail, which tears still flow in gratitude today.

Namaste

Back on Path, Mindfulness in Action

Back on Path, Mindfulness in Action

After the experience with my carotid artery I knew it was important to maintain some form of fitness and stay healthy. However, I realised it had been a number of weeks since I had walked any significant distance.

Off to the Lilydale Lake I went. Getting up in the dark and trying to find my clothes, I started to wonder, What am I doing?  Yet after washing the sleep from my eyes I could see clearly again and realised it wasn’t that bad!

My friend Charlotte and I started our walk around the lake when it was still dark. Street lights along the path partially lit our way and we were guided by the light of the full moon. It was magical.

On our past walks together we had talked and laughed, and focused mainly on our goal of getting around the lake twice in a good time. Yet something had happened. We started noticing so much more – like rabbits sitting tall and watching us. As we came close, they turned around with their fluffy white tails and scuttled away. At first we only noticed one but hiding behind clumps of grass was a whole family. A duck swam silently through the calm water forming a V-shaped wake as it glided along. The sun was rising in all its colour and brilliance. Mist hovered over the lake. Charlotte imagined we were in a scene from King Arthur. I thought we were in Scotland waiting for the Loch Ness monster to rise up and grace us with its presence.

We smiled encouragingly as our imagination bubbled — something I hadn’t felt for a while – and I got in touch with my inner child.

A little marsupial, larger than a mouse and not as big as a rat, sat comfortably on the side of the walkway, eating happily and not phased one bit as we strode by. We looked in amusement, making up stories about what it was thinking about us. Sitting on a post, two small blue birds watched as we walked by, their vivid colour bringing us feelings of happiness and putting a skip in our step.

Everything had changed. Nature’s beauty and richness was enhanced.

We expanded our breath as we walked and talked, each of our senses taking in the experience of the moment. Our bodies were relaxed even though we walked fast. Our backs extended upwards as if we were getting taller. We decided to rename Lilydale Lake “Lake Epiphany” because there had been many times that answers had profoundly dropped in.

No longer did we talk about getting fit. We shared that we were nourishing our souls as we breathed in the moment, aware and open.

It’s so easy, through life’s twists and turns, to lose our connection with the very thing that inspires and nourishes us: nature.

I now understand that reconnecting with nature makes us infinitely richer.

Back in the car we wound down the windows when they fogged up from our body heat. Driving off I felt the breeze cooling the perspiration on my face and down the back of my neck. I was alive! With gratitude, I silently thanked Lake Epiphany and all of her inhabitants for sharing and showing me the way.

When Dreams Heal and Magic Happens

DreamPic

I was tired and decided this week to take a couple of days off to rejuvenate. My thinking mind had been overactive and was draining my energy, and I needed to reconnect and re-align with my soul.

So, over the last couple of days I rested and felt rather than thought and was led to watch some of my most favourite movies; The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield, Conversations with God by Neil Donald Walshe and The Shift by Dr. Wayne Dyer. Smiling, I have to say that I wept on some occasions honestly, I wasn’t crying from sadness but in recognition of many aha moments.

Yesterday, I asked my soul to guide me and show me my next step, and during the early hours of this morning, I experienced a magical healing in my dream state.

Firstly, to give you some background a friend of mine had asked me to join his company to help with the sales and staffing. At the time the turnover was $25K, and I assisted him to become a multimillion-dollar company. The deal was he would pay my mortgage, and in the meantime, I would work for a small income much less than what I was worth. I was happy with that although at times it was difficult financially as a single parent with two young children.

Over time he became profitable, paid off his family home and purchased numerous investment properties but never honoured his verbal agreement. Eventually, due to some actions, I became disgruntled and left. One month later he knocked on my front door, flowers in hand on bended knee begged me to return, his business was floundering.

With compassion, I chose to return to the condition I was paid what I was worth. I didn’t mention our original agreement to pay out my mortgage because I felt sorry for him and trusted that it would happen eventually.

Within six months I realised nothing had changed! Through some profound and magical happenings, I commenced my holistic business and left for the last time.

Within a couple of years, I woke one morning after having a dream about him and his business. I saw that he had given a Director’s guarantee and this caused him to go bankrupt. I have to admit I struggled with what I should do. I was still angry. So, I put my grievance aside and called him, and shared my dream. He knew I was intuitive and thanked me but within two years it came true, and he lost everything including his family home.

He turned up at my doorstep once again seeking my friendship, but this time I showed no compassion. I was direct and told him so, he left soon after, and I have to admit I felt guilty for the way I behaved.

In the early hours this morning he was in my dream. I was working for him and noticed I was putting in minimal effort, not my norm, and I was transparent.

I could see a young man stepping up, and felt comfortable he had someone to replace me. He told me that he loved me, but it was time for me to go.

I felt such a great sense of peace as I woke from my dream.

On reflection, the young man was a younger version of him, and he had stepped up which made my heart glow. You see we both let go. I didn’t realise that all this time eighteen years I’d been holding onto the anger of the unfulfilled promise.

Today, I feel happy and free, and thankful my soul showed me my next step.

Please don’t underestimate the healing that can happen in your dream state. Our soul loves us and has beautiful ways of showing up and leading the way when we ask.

Until next week,

The Power of Prayer and Intention

UniverseGOTL1

To be prayerful does not mean that you have to be a part of a religious group or dogma. Prayer is all about intention. It is about feeling into and asking for what is within your heart. What is it that you need at this moment to bring forth love, harmony, and happiness? What is it that you require that needs the Universe’s support and love? What is it that you can’t do yourself that you need someone or something to lift you and raise your vibration and belief in something more significant than you?

These are all valid questions that when asked need precise answers. For how can a prayer or intention be answered if we are not clear?

The what is in your want or need and the how is where the Universe participates, and our only requirement is to relinquish control and allow the Universe to play its part.

We are co-creators and powerful spiritual and human beings. Be specific in your prayer and know that love will conceive love.

Some years ago, I had prayed for my daughter to be okay and for her to feel my love and when the time was right, for us to reconnect.  I re-affirmed this every night before closing my eyes to sleep. I didn’t pray in fear for her. I prayed trusting she was on her journey and wanting her to feel me for I missed her dearly.

I’m delighted to share that we did connect, although only for a short time and most unexpectedly and magically. You can read about it in my previous article Coffee and Cheesecake.

Love you x
