What is this worldwide unprecedented event teaching us all right now?

What is this worldwide unprecedented event teaching us all right now?

4 things to contemplate over this week, the gifts this time is offering us …

1 – MINDFULNESS IN THE MOMENT

We have spent decades learning how to hug, learning how to touch in the world, and the feeling of the heart to heart closeness, the warmth that is shared in a joyful hello or a goodbye. Now we are being asked to distance ourselves, have space between us all if we meet up or want to chat…So what if  we are being given the perfect opportunity to practise Presence, MINDFULNESS in the MOMENT….we have to be in the moment to choose our behaviour, our new distancing, we have to stop the habit to going in for the hug and  learning to stand apart…

So my suggestion as an action..look into the eyes of the person you are separate from, send the gratitude, appreciation , or love as a transmission from your heart  and through your eyes.  Have the intention that you are sending an etheric hug. Practise this, it is a very powerful thing to offer and receive.

2 – ADAPTABILITY

Learning how to adapt and be in the flow of change. At our inner soul nature we are strong. The species we are has adaptability at its core to flourish, to keep going. We cannot cling to a past idea, notion, or way of life now, we can ONLY start to take new actions , keep dreaming in the new world, stay in the movement of forward actions.  The world will never be the same, so we are being gifted an opportunity to learn how to change without resistance. Adaptability is one of our survival techniques…we can employ that, we can be present and take new actions, have new thoughts, work on higher feelings, be clear with the communication and words we leave in the enrgy field of life.

3 – DISCERNMENT

Discernment of information. You can take in so much, then the rest is overwhelm. Practising discernment means once again we can listen to our inner world and practise trust. If something feels off it is, if you are feeling there is TOO much negativity, switch off, do something that is uplifting, limit you intake of information, Find out what the changes are, then do something that brings you back into alignment with you soul. This lesson is a great one as we will need our true discernment not just of information, but as we create a  new way of living, you will have to make sure you do what feels aligned for you.

4 – PRIORITIES

Time to sort out the true priorities in your life

Easy peasy…

relationships,   spending time getting reconnected, finding new common threads, dreaming a new life forward together, letting family members know they are loved and appreciated, finding new ways to play, have fun, be together

making your home environment into  a rich,  loving and nurturing sanctuary,

health, wellness, vitality…taking all the precautions, having beautiful nourishing foods, movement, finding ways to exercise … skipping, home practise of yoga, Pilates and other forms of strength and breath work ( loads of you tube videos)

finding the space to allow some creative instincts to arise, colouring in, playing games, learning new things, ie calligraphy, watercolours, mosaic, beading,  cooking, sewing, knitting…and so many other things.

reconnecting to family and friends, reconnecting to your soul , reconnecting to your creative side, reconnecting to your intuition and so many other gifts.

SIMPLE ACTION

I have started to write a daily intention, prayer or blessing onto a piece of ribbon or cloth and tie it to a tree. Each morning that intention is a focal point for me, and a gift for the collective field of grace.

Just imagine for a moment, if loads of us do that…tie ribbons or pieces of cloth ( narrow like a ribbon) to trees, branches, pot plants and like prayer flags they wind takes that intention and spreads it around the world … such a blessing, a conscious action, a universal energy uplift.

Big bodacious blessings to you all.

Supporting Yourself In These Times Of Global Change

Supporting Yourself In These Times Of Global Change

Whether  a virus is gaining momentum, the financial world is wobbling, the daily actions we engage in threatened are  by big restrictions, the common theme in 2020 is CHANGE…. Changing of consciousness, elevating our awareness, raising our essential self to a new level, recalling our responsibility to life, planet, each other, and ultimately self.

What is happening now is rapid change, life a fever….  Furious in its ability to debilitate, burning up what is no longer required, making us take time to reset, and look at how our lives have been consumed by the external desires for more and more, been under the influence of so many others ideals and rules,  and showing us that taking care of our own self, those we love and our sanctuaries, ( homes)  need to be prioritised.

Louise Hays wrote many years ago..the metaphysical belief around  ‘influenza” is who or what is influencing you? Fear influences us to the depths of our instinctive nature. It is easy to fall into, and that worry has been shown through science, to affect our immune systems, deplete them, and we can be susceptible to the very thoughts creating those environments for viruses to flourish. These are the times we are called to show up with all that we believe, have recalled,  know and have embodied, the times to put our expansive skillsets to use

Fear has the ability to paralyse us, it is infectious, removes sensibility and puts us in a raging whirlpool without direction, unable to make decisions or take clear actions. Fear is fuelling the very depths of what we have hidden in self and how the collective has agreed to allow those secrets in exchange for following the ‘expected behaviours “ of our immediate world.

Change is upon us, we either fall apart and become a statistic, or we observe, stay safe and work on the inner world to create more connection, community, support, compassion and positivity  to rise above the hysteria. It is up to each of us to own our sovereign right to choose how we want to feel about the global events. , be swallowed by them or stand aside with a knowing that this too shall pass.

Yes stay safe, but from the place of inner work, self-care, keeping your thoughts and hearts in a higher calibration of energy.

Yes , things are fast right now, but we need this to bring about massive new ways. We can see this ‘virus” as a great leveller…no one and nothing is exempt from it or its effects.  There will be dramatic and drastic situations, and we are all a part of it.

As this new world, or new energy is anchoring, we are participating in the creative process of what is next.

YES each of us is adding to the collective force, consciousness which is taking us towards our new selves, world, earth and operating systems. Make sure that you are operating from the place of love, gratitude, awareness and aligning with the highest aspects of self . What we are feeling  right now radiates into the world

If we are in fear, we close down. If we are in gratitude or love, we radiate out. The higher the vibe we engage in, the better our immune systems.

So how do we  caretake ourselves, others and stay safe

Create The Landing Pads

Create The Landing Pads

Consider for a moment the journey of your soul and the potentials it carries for us.

What if at every point of contrast in your life to date, your soul has already intended, desired, yearned for, put out, for something better, something more, something easier, something beyond your mental capacity of imagining for you …at every point of contrast in your whole life!!!!.

Take a breath and absorb that…what point of contrast did you experience today, where you knew you wanted something better?

Where do all those desires, intentions, yearnings that happen in a split second, go?

They hang around in our energy field as gifts for us, openings to step into something better, or more aligned.  They are energetic pulses of heightened awareness just waiting for the actions, and openings to become the seeds of growth.

A friend used the description of loads of helicopters flying around with nowhere to land…imagine that right now…hundreds, maybe thousands of “helicopters” flying about in your energy field looking for a place to land, and there is nothing… you have called them in, yet you haven’t given them a berth.

But as mere mortals, what do we do?…  we try to build 1 helicopter…instead of aligning with what needs to be done to land the thousands already there!!!

So this  is  what gets in the way of those potentials …as a mere mortal we decided I want something better and it has to look like  blah blah blah ( already a limitation process), or … you have the idea , then you set in motion  the planning, the structure, the strategies, the mechanics, the distractions, the  setbacks, the hiccups, the struggle, finally pulling it all together in a moment of celebration, BUT with exhaustion!!..then you look up and see thousands of helicopters already to land,…what you wanted was there and better!! DOH!!!!

we keep making lists, intending more and more, desiring and yearning for a life that we think we have to struggle and strive for, and hoping that one day, something good may happen to shift where we are at, or maybe someday, there will be an opportunity that will change our life or maybe  I will win something to change everything, ?????

Sound familiars, yes I know this, I have been there as well!! More than once

When we stop long enough so we can open up  to receive, when we are creating the feelings of the very things we are yearning for, we have a pretty good chance of finally having those very things land in our life

They are already there, waiting for us to receive them…just sit with that…They are already in our energy field, waiting for us to allow them in, bring them to life, birth them into reality, create them into existence

Remember, sometimes we want, or desire things that are not for us, and we become so discouraged when they don’t appear. Tuning into what we already have the potential for is more rewarding, and quicker to create.

We just need to create or build our “ landing pads”… these are the feelings of what we our soul has already yearned for us. We are required to develop the connection between the visualisation and the feeling…. May I add, NOT from lack, scarcity, or wishful thinking, but totally from knowing that what is meant to be mine in this life will be WHEN I HAVE THE RIGHT FEELING…that is your landing pad!!!

This also means that we are absolutely required to do the inner work, change thought patterns, develop more expansive beliefs. Or even reflect on which beliefs we are living that are really ours…how many of our beliefs are installed, instilled and inherited, then how can I release them to create ones that are true for me in the now.

So we dive in…we take action to let go of what is not for us, what patterns, beliefs etc are in the way of these pulses of potential to become a reality, we work on our self through our inner world , cultivating the environment for these potentials to land, anchor in and become!!

This is where the inner listening, the understanding of our inner dialogue, the soul language and direction shows us what we really are desiring…. It is already there!!!

Easy to say,  maybe,  but once we develop the trust in self, you can access all that you need. Years ago this would have been seen as weirdo beliefs…now with technology, quantum science, and the incredible amount of transformation most of us have been through or are exposed to, this is the way forward…yes it can be easy once we drop the old beliefs that tell us, it can’t happen, it isn’t real, only people with loads of meditation and higher awareness can achieve this,…we are in the times where this is for us all…

How on earth can we create a new world, better collaboration, more peace, oneness, compassion and gratitude, if we are not doing new things and dreaming in the world we want to live in?

This is NOT rocket science, this is soul work, your helicopters are all lined up waiting to land.

This Light That I Am Shows Me The Next Step

This Light That I Am Shows Me The Next Step

What do any of us really need?

What do we really require to fully show up offering our soul calling to this life?

When I see this world in its beauty and potential,  its polarity of madness and chaos,  I  can observe the disconnection that all of us feel at the deepest part of who we are.

This energy shove at present is bringing to us the “slap in your face” awareness that…..

We need to let go of the struggle, let go of the illusion, release the deeply ingrained conditioning….

We need to have faith in our soul’s wisdom, it knows the story we have chosen to play out on this earth journey

We need to engage in the movement forward in life, not turning back to relive the moments of trouble over and over.. Consciousness moves forward, showing us that we have this incredible support to expand, to create, to become.

We need to realise that each day is a new beginning, it is up to us.

We can make each moment that fresh start, take a deep breath and decide what new things you can create, do, be, engage in, think dream, feel, align with.

We need to understand we will have days of low energy, low faith in self or the process of life, low connection, low ability to see things in a new light, and that is perfectly  perfect…it is a reset moment, where we can count our blessings, step back, recalibrate ourselves, and have space to realign. We need these days for rest, reflection and recharge. You are not wrong , broken or have fallen off the path of ‘righteousness”..hahahahah, you are just having a day or days of resetting within you.

What if these times of low-level energy or vibration are allowing us to align with something else that is ready for us, giving us space to reassess and prepare?

As we move closer to the end of this decade, and the birth of a new expansive 10 years,  we need to remember that…..
Everything you need, you already have within

So much of what we have been told we needed to have to be more connected, more spiritual, more sacred, more ‘special’…is not true, not anymore, and really never was, however, it all played a part to bring us to this time of great awakening and  remembering, we have all we need.

Your best action is to go within, listen to your own wisdom, take action when and where you can, build a relationship of trust within yourself, find the sanctuary in your ability to connect to your inner knowing.

When we first embark on this wondrous experience, we like to bounce our findings off others we trust and respect…ask for help, ask for guidance, ask for another perspective, but in the end, it is you that decides what feels right for you… start to trust that sense…and you will never doubt yourself again.

Whatever it is we need, we can find the answer in the quiet space within, so make time for nature a priority, make space for you a non-negotiable part of life, …then just breathe, and listen, discern and take action.
The reality is that we do actually KNOW what we are here for ….our soul wrote the story!!!

How do we know …we can feel it. Those moments, or days, of flow, when you are lit up with excitement when you have some clarity that sets a whole chain of events in motion when things start coming to you easily, opportunities, invitations, people, support, you feel open and receiving, and you feel at ease with what is happening.

These times show up and remind us of how it can be. There are always times when it isn’t that way…” where did I go wrong?” we will ask ourselves… well what if you haven’t gone wrong., what if you are just being gifted some time to ‘count your blessings”, reset, and be ready for the next flow of soul movement. These are the times we take better care of ourselves, more nurture, more nature, more rest.

Remember, the cycles of life are preparation, planting the seeds, growth and then the rewards, or fruits of our effort…and we are on repeat with that. The natural world ebbs and flows, and so do we.
Sometimes the hardships give rise to greater openings
Sometimes the challenges give rise to new directions
Sometimes the chaos gives rise to bold decisions

The next step is up to you.

Hold Your Own In These Times Of Crazy

Hold Your Own In These Times Of Crazy

I know there have been some ‘interesting’ things happening in the world, the fear, chaos, worry, helplessness is on the rise, along with anger directed at ‘them”..(.those who are creating havoc)…the more we engage externally, getting caught up in the anger of the world, the harder it is to find our true centre, and we stop seeing the wonderment, the acts of compassion, the incredible things being done quietly to support and assist others. The world is focused on the drama, yet there are a multitude of amazing things being done, happening, being birthed.
There are no real answers for what is occurring, however there are ways to hold your self without becoming lost in the web of chaos.
At the heart of all Humans, the desire for love and respect is a constant yearning. Yet, we can be fast to blame, quick to judge, even instantaneous is finding fault with others.
The daily tuning into your centre, your place where love and respect exists, allows your connection to something vast and infinite. We may not understand why things are happening, our human mind has been trained to see and believe what we are told, but we can take care of how much energy and the quality of energy we give to all these events.
Sure there are horrid things happening to many innocent people, animals and our planet…there are no ‘sensible excuses or reasons” that our human mind can understand…and it keeps happening
What can each of us do…keep finding that place of peace in self, take care of what we need to, offer powerful thoughts and intentions, prayers and healing energy into the world around us, practice being non judgmental for a day at a time,, think about what is coming out of your mouth before you say it, look at peoples actions that are annoying and perhaps accept that they are behaving in a way from things that have pushed them to the edge, none of us know what others have been going through
Taking a few moments each day, to close your eyes, shutting out the world, tuning into your centre, breathing with an intention, can really offer support while the weird crazy around us occurs.
My meditation practice has been a refuge and over the last month or so it has deepened dramatically..If you want to begin a practise, there are so many ways to do that, I can offer suggestions, there are classes all over the place, the thing is, time to start is now.
If you goggle the Maharishi Effect, a study conducted in a war torn country, the results were INCREDIBLE. The rates of violence, hospital admissions, etc dropped when a certain umber of people were meditating each day. There is power in holding space, meditating, setting intentions… as mere mortals, we have forgotten, that we can interact from an energetic perspective and initiate change. We are connected to something universal, getting glimpses of it occur when you can tune IN to you.
Choosing to read, watch, see, things of beauty, inspiration, perhaps google some of the amazing actions people are taking around the world to build communities,, educate areas, discover those who are helping developing nations in all areas of life, perhaps gather with friends and make conversation about uplifting things.,.
The energy we offer fills the world around us, Maybe if we take some responsibility for our output, we just might feel more helpful, than overwhelmed with being helpless.

Transitions

Transitions

Transitioning from one state of being into a new phase requires some great willingness, fuelled with unwavering trust to allow things to unfold as they are meant to,
As unpredictable as life can be, we still go through the growth process of awareness, decision, action, outcomes and then transition, that grey area most of us are really uncomfortable with,.
Transitioning between achieving and starting something else is also an expression of the process. It is a place of pause, a place of recalibrating, resetting, time to integrate all that you have previously worked towards so your whole personal vibration can align with that latest outcome. You are allowing a new aspect of you to embody, changing personal dynamics.

It isn’t easy when all we have been conditioned with, is to set a goal, achieve, set another goal, achieve. We celebrate briefly, yet our minds are already setting, plotting and scheming the next project, goal, or outcome.
Transitions bring up loads of uncertainty about where we are going which can throw us off our purpose or pathway as we feel like we spiral into a void of nothingness, our motivation seems is lost, sense of value is questioned, and then the scratching around trying to find something to fill that weird void.
The ability to allow the ‘nothingness” is a great choice, it is the ‘afterglow” of achieving, the space between breaths, the opening to other possibilities from a new vibrational awareness in self, the resting in the discovery of a new aspect of self
Transitioning phase does come to an end, we can’t force it to be any faster, we need to surrender into the opportunity to renew our vision of self.
