The Field of Flowers

3EBA4B39-B1F0-4DB8-945A-2717B33FA1B0

The below is an excerpt from my book that will be published early next year. It is a channeled book filled with love, healing and wisdom.

The Field of Flowers

Within each of you, there is a field that is so nourishing it is rich with your own crop of flowers. Each flower represents a life cycle, and each life cycle is represented by a seed within your heart, a seed of light that emits a vibration so radiant that the sun would be dull in its presence.

You are more significant than you can imagine and believe us when we say, you have a field so lush that you need only to connect to it. This field is your creativity.

It is the creative self that permeates all mind stuff and blooms at the time most required.

Our children of earth this time is filled with prosperity and potential. It is out of the box and not conditioned by society and culture. It is untamed, wild and free. Breathe out children of earth and sense and feel into it. It is spontaneous, bright and fun.

Creativity is your muse. It is your breath of fresh air to dull the pain and to open you to receive. It is creation in activity. We love you our children of earth, and we ask nothing of you but to believe in your own creative spirit, your own field of flowers.

Creativity cannot be tamed nor contained nor tempered. When it releases it is wild and free filled with possibility. It is the energy needed at the right time.

Creativity is far more than artwork, it is your creative intelligence, your spark of hope, it is the faith that gets you through on a long and dark night. It moves you into action and then leaves you feeling nourished. It inspires action through the creative seeds that are within.

Problems are solved, lyrics are written, art is inspired, and so on.

We tell you that creativity is not exclusive to some; it is available to all. Embrace it, know it and open to it. Allow those seeds to open and walk within your own field of flowers.

Please do not hide and deny your creativity for it is through this energy that inspires all. Share your creative spirit and water the seeds of others. Go forth children of earth and run within the field of flowers. We love you

Until next time, with love,

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,

The Last Pony

Blog PicHappinessGuides

How do we know when life is flowing? What makes us believe that we require to be first in a race? How does one know whether we are alive or in a dream?

As I sit today ready to write this blog, I connect not through the head but through the heart. Love has a way of flowing whether there is an obstruction or not. Time has a way of moving whether we choose to stop or not. Simple but so true.

This week’s blog is a little philosophical as I begin yet another journey to a new home. The ninth in five years. YES, it’s true!

I’ve learnt over these past years that wherever my heart is, and I’m talking my physical heart, then I know I’m home.

So today poses more questions than answers dear friends, today is but a glimpse and tomorrow well, what can I say, is tomorrow.

Smiling, and by the way, I have no idea why I called this blog ‘The Last Pony’.

Love you, until next week,

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

Life’s Unseen Gifts

SibylApril2018

First Published in Sibyl Magazine April 2018

Confusion, doubt, incessant mind games haunting the recesses of my mind. What is the truth? What do I believe?

Growing up with a narcissistic mother and then dealing with a father who was caught up in his fears and took his frustration out on me in many unpleasant ways. I often wonder how I’m so sane today. Or am I, or realistically is anyone?

Coming into this world I had a deep understanding and eagerness to learn, yet as I became more initiated into this human life with the twisted mind games a narcissist plays and the physical abuse the body endured. I rolled from having a well of deep compassion to feeling confused, fearful, alone and just wanting to go home. This world was cruel.

Yet, I chose my parents, and there was much to learn from them.

Honestly, it wasn’t until I was in my twenties I began to accept that statement. Prior when others from spiritual circles would express that, the hair at the back of my neck would prickle with disbelief and anger rose.

It was during a lunch break at a Reiki workshop I was teaching when one of my students who was sitting opposite reacted to something I said. She slammed her hands down on the table and launched her body towards me and screamed,

“I’ve had the same childhood and how can you be so positive?”

I remember, although shocked by the force of her energy. A calmness from within emerged, and I sat still for a moment feeling her pain, then compassionately said,

“There’s a saying that God never gives us more than we can handle. I was born with an awareness that has assisted me to see the positive through life’s challenges so that when I fall, and I do, I rise with hope and faith. Now, you have shared your husband is your rock. Tell me have you always had someone in your life that was your rock?”

She answered with calmer energy, “Yes.” I then said,

“I’ve never had a rock. Could you consider that your rock is similar to my positive nature for it has the same role in holding us when life throws bricks, and we fall?”

She thought for a moment and nodded in agreement as she settled back into her chair.

We are never, ever alone in our journey of learning to meander through this life. God/Universe gives us gifts to support in different ways, yet all leading to lift us when we fall.

My parents, I can honestly say I love with all my heart although they have chosen to be absent from my life. They gave me life, showed me their vulnerability, and although I’ve been twisted, reshaped and had a journey of hard learning through similar relationships. It’s been the untangling, simplifying and coming back to the authentic loving, and joyful me that has fuelled my purpose, because of my journey, for supporting and bringing hope into others’ lives.

In gratitude, Namaste

A Message from the Guardians of the Light

woman-happiness-sunrise-silhouette-40192

The energy of love flows within the universal stream of light.

Dear ones, know that you are love. Know that love resides within all beings on this earth plane. Know that love has been hidden for far too long.

It’s time children of earth to claim your right. Stand in love, be love and know love for the simplicity and truth that it is.

Let not your fear rule you. Fear is an illusion to break down the spirit of knowing.

Today our children of earth be courageous and surrender to love.  You are not surrendering your free-will and ability to choose, that is the illusion fear creates.

We love you and know this to be truth xx

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,
