A Compassionate Heart Breathes

Compassionate heart
First published in Sibyl Magazine August 2019

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. These are the words I say often. I love to hold my hands gently over my heart centre as I breathe deeply into my heart, feeling the gratitude with such warmth and comfort. How do you find comfort in your life? How do you connect to the gratitude within each breath, for breath is life, and is certainly something to be grateful?

Many times, over the years, I’ve experienced miraculous events. There have been times when I did not doubt that an earth angel visited to guide me, hold me, and in some cases, save my life. Everyday miracles abound, but do you notice them? Do you stop at that moment and acknowledge the gift? Or, do you shake your head and disregard that precious moment, that opportunity that could change the direction of your life.

We, as humans, have the gift of free-will. God, our creator, gave us this gift so that we can choose our path, our direction. What choices have you made that you either regret, judge, blame or shame? Do you carry that burden with you in the here and now? Does it weigh heavily on your heart, and does your mind consistently return to the past to only engage in further suffering?

I’m here to say, “Beautiful souls, please DO NOT carry this lower vibration for life is a series of experiences to learn and grow.” Breathe out… let it fall away and now breathe in for at this moment, free-will offers you an opportunity to make new and conscious choices. Choices made from the experience learnt, and the wisdom gained. There’s a saying; if you do what you’ve always done, you will get what you’ve always got. I say, change something small, and the outcome will surely differ.

YOU have the power to choose! Do not ever believe you are powerless, for powerless you will become.

Smiling, I can be so philosophical at times, and yet my heart bleeds when I see others suffer, and when I feel the suffering of the collective consciousness. Yes, I have also experienced many losses and had challenging times. I too have perceived I’ve made wrong choices, but I’m here to share that I’ve ALWAYS been guided back onto my path, and so are you if you only paused for a moment to see.

I’m learning just like you to TRUST in my journey and set myself free from my burdens. So that I may experience the simplicity that LOVE affords us when we move throughout our life being compassionate, kind and loving to ourselves. There’s a ripple effect when we do, and others will gain from our higher vibration, wisdom and actions.

The universe is an awesome wonder, and we are all so connected much more than we realise. Raise your vibration, and learn from your experience for your soul does not want you to suffer. Breathe in the gift of gratitude, and feel the peace and comfort.

Love you ❤

Until next time, breathe easy, love more and laugh often.

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.

Journaling with the Guardians of the Light

GOLWritingMariaLacey

Maria, the energy of light, is illuminating your path. Trust is the subject of today’s writings.

Trust the energy within. This would spark trepidation for some. Years of hurt from others. Betrayed trust and the most valued of all trusting oneself!!

Our children of earth to trust is to have an unconditional commitment to whatever the outcome. To trust is to know there are circumstances beyond your control. To trust is to know deep within your soul that whatever flows is what is available to learn from. To trust oneself is to love oneself knowing that at times you have allowed outside influences to stray you.

This is nothing new that you are not aware of.

Time
Reassurance
Unconditional
Step
Transmission

I’m feeling like my connection is not strong, so I ask this question. Why am I not receiving your guidance as clear?

Maria, you have been too busy in your head to trust this process.

Our child of light love flows through all things. You, our child of light have enormous potential, yet there are times you sabotage your efforts.

Trusting you is the hardest of all. (I knew what that meant, for they were referring to trusting myself)

To trust you, you must be grounded. You must be clear in your boundaries. You must know the truth of your heart. To know this, you must sit in silence and listen.

There are many who are in similar situations and only when they sit in the silence do they really connect and align.

Child of light do not be hard on yourself. Forgiveness is needed here. Forgiveness of oneself!

Only you make yourself do what you do. Each human being has free-will and therefore has a choice. To trust is to know the responsibility of your choices. The outcome is irrelevant.

I sat for a moment looking at the last sentence, ‘The outcome is irrelevant.’ Hmm, I suppose that IS trust, to have confidence in knowing that whatever the outcome, it will be okay.

I then realised it was their example of TRUST above that confused me a little, I say what did they mean by Transmission? Lift off? But I got it, see below:

Time (Sit in the silence)
Reassurance (From the silence you will feel connected and aligned with self)
Unconditional (Love is the key)
Step (Have faith)
Transmission (Communication begins)

Thank you, Guardians of the Light.

Our child of light, thank you xx

A Message from the Guardians of the Light

lion-wild-africa-african.jpg

The energy within the Earth plane is now flowing at a new vibration. There are many dimensions now being seen by many through the human eye. This is not to be concerned as the adjustments are taking place for the alignment of the New Earth Star.

People of the Earth this time is reflective! This time is for introspection, and it is a time to know who you are.

To love the light that shines within and to deny the fear that flows to darken your light.

Understand that you are perfect as you are. The changes at this time are a reflection so bright, so that you may see the illusion that your fears and that of your society has been creating to mask the internal power and strength of the love that resides within each one of you.

Our children of light breathe out the illusion and allow your breath to clear the smokescreen that you have believed in for so long!

Our children of light you have the power to create a loving and bountiful community. In this space there will be no need for fear and its illusion!

Trust in the power of love and light and know that you are being supported through the Universal Stream which connects everything. Believe and it shall be truth!

Until next week,

A Leap of Faith

SibylMarch2018

First Published in Sibyl Magazine March 2018

I woke this morning, and as my eyes opened, I heard my voice with such a gentle tone saying, “It’s time to move.” Every part of me felt at peace, and in my heart, I knew what that meant.

It was time to sell my home and move once again in the direction of the unknown, yet this time was very different. It was bigger so much bigger, for I was to leave the security I had created over the past seventeen years. A sanctuary I knew was safe. A place my children had grown and a place where I flourished and ran my holistic business, a place called home.

Realistically, at the age of fifty-two, it felt huge! Even though I didn’t own my home and had a mortgage, it was my only form of financial security.

There was no-one in my future to save me financially, estranged from my family, a child bought up with physical abuse and narcissism there was a reality for my sense of safety. Though I knew, I had to take this leap of faith, and with an incomplete picture, I stepped onto that path.

Within a month my home was sold, I gave away most of my possessions, jumped into my little car, and set off house sitting.

Soon after, I realised the larger picture and why my soul had guided me to experience without the busyness to distract me. It was vital for me to face and conquer my greatest fear, and that was the fear of being unsafe, vulnerable and in pain. My home was my sanctuary, and I’d created a safe and secure nest, where my pain and vulnerability could be protected! By letting everything go, I had forced myself to honestly see me and run head on and face that fear, and see it for what it was, an illusion.

It’s been four years. I’ve gained wisdom in knowing I can feel safe and secure no matter where I’m living, and now fully understand that my home is really where my heart is.

Also, I’ve discovered that I’m strong and can set clear boundaries, be flexible, tolerant and patient. I’m genuinely trusting my intuition and guidance because it has always shown me the way, history had taught me that, even when I chose to ignore it. I’ve become friends with my vulnerability and love the softness I feel being close to it.

To allow oneself to be vulnerable is a strength, but the first step takes courage.

I’m not advocating you do this; it’s quite radical. I’m sharing my truth of my soul’s journey to heal and grow, and how discomfort can breathe new life into us if we only STOP and feel into it, listen, appreciate, process and transform.

Holding onto the past sucks, moving into the present and creating from a healed state is liberating.

Do I regret my choice? Not at all, because I trust my soul loves me, and my heart knows.

Until next week,
