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

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

I Am Good Enough

sibyljan2019

First Published in Sibyl Magazine January 2019

How many times have we questioned whether we are good enough? How many times have we tripped ourselves up with our unsavoury words about ourselves?

The past couple of years had been my hardest for a very long time as I recovered from illness. During that time, I had realisation after realisation about my personal history and what pain and suffering I’d been carrying. It felt heavy and had drained me, and some of that suffering wasn’t even mine. It was that of others.

Being an empath and also being unwell my energy was low and I’d become a sponge unable to protect my energy field. Silly I’d say, for I’d been well versed as a spiritual teacher to put practices into place, but my condition left me feeling defenceless.

Through that time, I understood how my self-worth had been thrashed. Although a glass half full girl, and someone who’d experienced many miraculous events in her life. There seemed to be an underlying dirty river that tainted the purity of this soul’s journey.

On reflection, it was my soul’s urges that had me experiencing this part of my life. My soul knew that for me to step up, show up and expand my light, I needed to clear the debris of the past and move into a higher state of awareness for me to fulfil my purpose.

The extraneous length of my illness had been caused by me! Initially, it was a wake-up call. A moment for me to rest and heal, and what did I do. Pushed, struggled and wrestled day and night. My mind was not on the here and now but on the should’s, what if’s, and the future, which I might add was created through my need to survive cheered on by fear itself. Yes, that underlying dirty river, fear and survival.

Yet, this was the right timing, for I didn’t need to fear my survival because I had a small nest egg that I could live on for a short time.

I look back and think how I could have made this so much easier on myself if I only listened to my soul, for I heard, but my fear had a louder voice, and the rest was history.

Through this miraculous journey, oh yes, I still believe it was. I’ve come to understand I’ve had underlying beliefs that have sabotaged my personal happiness. Those beliefs were embedded from a young age, and although I’ve done much self-work, it was time to purify the river.

Through my healing journey, there have been some gems, and the most prevalent that makes me smile is, I AM GOOD ENOUGH. Good enough in all ways, and I’m now showing up, lighting up and stepping up in my life.

You see, our soul yearns for us to grow and be happy, and if I can share anything, that would be to listen to that quiet voice you feel within your heart and allow it to lead the way.

With much love and gratitude,

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,

Make A Wish

SibylJuly2018

First Published Sibyl Magazine July 2018

Recently I dropped into a new age store and decided on the spur of the moment to pay for a half hour reading. The woman used tarot cards, and the wish card appeared twice. She reminded me although it says three wishes you have only one wish. I remembered sitting there thinking hard, “What could I wish for that wouldn’t waste this precious one?” I couldn’t decide and chose to save it for later.

Within a couple of days, I found a dandelion on my bedroom floor. I wondered for a moment how it came to be in my home. You see ever since I was a child each time a dandelion floated around me I knew I could make a wish. I called it my wishing star, and then remembered the tarot card and my one wish. I mean really, why was it so hard to make? What was stopping me?

Sitting in contemplation, I concluded it was fear stopping me. The concern I could waste this opportunity and the biggest fear was being unworthy. Then I wondered how I could make a wish that would also benefit others, after all, I always delighted in others gains, but by this time my mind had become a whirlpool of energy, thoughts off in all directions and then, that protective part of me slammed shut, and once again I delayed making that wish.

It was time to move from my rental home. I began the search in earnest and without realising I’d set the intention and made my wish. I knew what I wanted. Three bedrooms, clean and light, a lovely alfresco outdoor area, lawn and garden so that Maggie my pup and I could enjoy, and most importantly a creative space for my writing and a room where I could run my business from home with ease.

Trusting the universe had my back was imperative, and within a short time, my dream property appeared. You see, this was my wish, and against all the odds it came true.

Firstly, there were over thirty applications. Secondly, my referee from my existing property was not forthcoming, and thirdly, I had a dog, and the landlord didn’t want a dog on the property.

There was also something very different I noticed about myself especially after I’d sent in that application which had never happened to me before. Usually I would have ruminated whether I’d get it or not and even in my mind I would have placed my furniture in the new home, and of course, there would be the usual anxious moments, but not this time.

My trust in the universe was stronger than it had ever been. Maybe it was the subconscious knowledge that I’d placed my wish and trusted it would come true.

All I can say is, thank you, thank you, thank you for this home which will not only benefit myself and Maggie but all of the wonderful clients and students I am privileged to work with daily.

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,
