The Doorway to Wisdom

There is an innate wisdom, a doorway, that is filled with unimaginable knowledge.

How many times have we spoken words of wisdom to a friend or colleague that seemed to come out of nowhere? I’m here to assure you that I believe many. So where does that wisdom come from? Some may say God others the Universe, maybe even ourselves.

I believe it comes from all the above. Each of us has a soul, the very spirit that is in every atom of our physical body. Our soul is accessed through the gateway of our heart chakra, an energy centre which is connected to Source, God, the Universe whatever you choose to name it. Through that gateway, we are expansive and connected to a stream of light, which opens us to the Library of Knowledge. Some may say the akashic records, either way, we can access knowledge and wisdom far beyond our understanding in this life.

Many of us unconsciously access this when our heart is activated through a deep feeling for another’s discomfort, and those words of compassion and inspiration flow with ease.

Our love opens a portal of wisdom which gushes from the depths of our heart into the light of day.

Don’t you just love that! We are SOOO amazing, yet so unconscious to the magic that happens often.

Love is the key to accessing all that is me, an unlimited being. A soul incarnated into this physical body onto this Earth.

Love is the key to opening the doorway to our soul and to awakening our consciousness.

I know, how easy is that, or not!

Our personality/ego, the expression of our conditioning and the affected emotional and mental bodies can often thwart that very connection. Triggering a disruption, a doubt, a confusion, an internal war between the mind, which has been conditioned by the data received through our experiences in this life, and the purity of the heart, which may have felt jaded from those experiences. This can cause us to close down the feeling aspect, that real intelligence that is connected to our heart and opens the doorway to the soul.

In glimpses, we notice those moments, those miracles as words gently unfold from our tongue and caress another’s pain.

Wouldn’t it be a magical life if we could access that knowledge consciously and at will? I’m here to share that we can. So how do we do that?

Many ways will support this, but first, we need to align ourselves with the higher mind, the intellectual, intuitive mind connected to our higher self and vibrating at the same resonance as our soul.

Sit in silence, breathe and raise your awareness to just above your head, this is where the higher mind sits. Notice your physical mind calm and sense your connection to your heart centre. Sit with it and become familiar to this feeling, for this is the beginning, the beginning of you accessing, at will, your soul and all it offers.

With love, namaste

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,

Your Head or Your Heart? Now that’s a question

MyHeadOrHeart1Have you ever had to make a major decision in your life and found yourself confused because there seemed to be two distinct voices going on inside, and more often they were on opposing sides. Now, which voice did you listen to?

Was it the loud thundering voice inside your head, which seemed to come with much expert instruction and possibly a tremor of fear or trepidation if you didn’t take its advice. Or was it the soft and tender heart’s voice, which was a feeling, and was hard to hear over that other booming voice.

How often have you looked back in hindsight and realised if you’d only listened to your heart it would have turned out so much better for you?

Smiling, we have all been there and wonder why our lives can be so complicated. When really, the only complication is the inner struggle of the head and the heart.

It’s interesting how we believe that our thoughts and brain are where the intellect is, and yes to some degree it is, but it is fraught with conditioning and input from our past experiences.

What about the intelligence of the heart our soul?

Have you ever understood the wisdom that your soul contains? Have you ever heard of your higher self? Have you ever known a KNOWING so deep that you just could not deny it?

In my travels, overseas there have been many a time where I’ve gone to walk down a lane and been stopped by a strong feeling in my gut warning me not to go there. It was hard to deny, and I turned away and walked in a different direction. My head wanted the reasoning as to why? My heart just knew.

At those times, the feeling was STRONG! It’s not always like that, and often we become confused. So how do we differentiate between the head and the heart?

Firstly, practice. Yes, I mean practice! By practicing with the small everyday choices, the larger decisions will become easier. For example; you’ve been invited out by friends, and your head says you SHOULD go. But you feel uneasy knowing that you don’t enjoy yourself at that venue. Keep it simple and be honest and share with your friends that you don’t like the venue but happy to catch up with them another time or suggest another place to go. Either way, there is no attachment to changing what the others wish to do, it is about being true to you – following your heart.

You see, your heart/soul loves you and wants you to be happy. When you’re happy, you have a higher vibration and feel more confident and clear. Your self-worth improves and no longer do you fear following what FEELS right for you.

Others will respect you providing you have come from that place of self-love.

If your head interferes and you give excuses and justify through telling maybe little white lies through fear. Others will feel that and will distrust your intent, and you will not feel comfortable.

Remember, we are intelligent, spiritual beings having a human experience.

So why not make your life so much simpler and teach and expand your human mind to know that your heart/soul has intelligence and wisdom far greater than this lifetime and it loves you and wants you to learn, grow, create, and live a happy, colourful and fulfilled life.

Happy practicing.

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,

Gratitude, Love and Universal Guidance

girl-praying-handsBlogEach morning I wake and whisper, thank you, thank you, thank you, and I’m grateful to Dr. Wayne W. Dyer for that inspiration.

I’ve always said a gratitude prayer but these two words said three times, seem to invoke such an enriching feeling of warmth it makes me smile no matter what is happening in my life.

Thank you ..   Thank you ..   Thank you ..

Commencing my morning in gratitude opens my heart to the wonderful possibilities this day will hold. The day seems brighter, those I connect with seem more loving, smiling, maybe that’s because I feel love and express through love.

In 2010, I had a near death experience during surgery, and surprisingly, in 2016 I also had another near-death experience caused by an infectious mosquito whilst overseas in Bali.

Within two months of the first near-death experience I felt the urgency to write. I had been writing in a journal for years, documenting my travels overseas, writing to gain clarity and to release the consistent thoughts that bounced around in my head at times. But that day was different. I went into my study and found a new exercise book, feeling as though I was at the beginning of something.

In my art room, my place of inspiration and relaxation, I sat comfortably in a lovely old armchair, gifted to me by a good friend. I relaxed my body and, with pen in hand, wrote the date. I sensed a gentle touch on my shoulder, then an energy moved through my arm and into my hand. I let go and allowed my hand to do the writing!

That day marked the beginning of my whole world expanding.

It was the day the Guardians of the Light began channelling through me, and although I have struggled at times with my own lack of self-worth, I mean really, who am I to share this with the world?  Then, I realised after much internal debate, who am I to question a higher source who have shown me nothing but love, patience and knowledge, for they are a collective of divine beings from the universal source of light here to teach us not only to simply exist but to awaken us to love.

The Guardians of the Light have opened me to the possibility of a deeper more profound wisdom. It has awakened a freedom not felt or remembered in this life, and there is a knowing and profound heart connection to source.

Mind you, they have challenged my thinking, beliefs and conditioning, all with so much love, smiling, and sometimes tough love.

In my first book, One Path, Many Lights I share the beginning of that journey and some of their eternal wisdom and their love for the human race and what they call the earth star, our planet, Mother Earth.

Today I will share a small snippet of what is yet to come in my writings here on my blog.

A message from the Guardians of the Light

To choose love is to live a life free of fear
To choose love is to see only through love

Our children of earth, the energy of love knows no boundaries. This energy flows so pure and with such strength that your soul yearns to be within it. Yet your head and mind including those many thoughts maintain a connection to what is, what was and what will ever be.

This connection is not necessarily pure for it has been created on a human level, infused with fear and conditioning. This is the understanding that is required. For when you are in the purity of love, every cell within the human body flows with ease and will create a fullness of energy and life force.

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,
