A change in perception changes everything!

I’ve been back in London for just over a week having spent the summer in Dorset and exploring England and Ireland.  I’ve had a wonderful time in London so far which is very surprising as recently when I’ve visited London I’ve had some stressful times.

You see I firmly believe that whatever shows up in my life, I’ve created, so when something apparently ‘negative’ shows up, unfortunately I’ve got to take credit for that too!  Since I moved to Dorset I’ve thought that’s where I ‘should’ be.  So when I’m in London there have been many times when I haven’t really felt present. In hindsight I realise that I was perceiving London as a very stressful place to be.  This was having an ‘interesting’ and not so positive impact on the time I spent here.
I was discussing this with a friend before this visit as I actually wasn’t looking forward to leaving Dorset.  It became clear that I’d been creating a reality that I didn’t want.  It amazed me that I’d managed to slip into this way of being as I’m usually so aware of what I might be subconsciously creating.  With that awareness I changed my perspective and focussed on what I’d love instead.  I am glad to say that this visit has been absolutely blissful and I know it will only get better!  I’ve had some wonderful sessions with clients, both in person and on skype, catching up with friends, some very productive meetings and I’ve also met new people in a magical synergistic way!  I’ve also managed to get through hundreds of emails on my facebook and my private account which had been draining my energy (so if you are one of the people I haven’t got back to yet… I will do so very soon)!  I’ve also started my blog and I have some exciting plans on the launch of my new YouTube channel!

I’d like to share the highlight of my time in London so far which was a visit to Queens Wood in Highgate which is minutes from my London home. I met one of my best friends there for a catch up over a cuppa and cake in the very wonderful, old-fashioned café there.  As we walked through the woods later, we discovered an exhibition which was scattered through the woods entitled ‘Cutback’ which was a gentle demonstration against the proposed cutbacks, the use of pesticides and more.  As we meandered through the woods we discovered a magical haven with a large circle of hammocks.  I had found my bliss!  I found a hammock and took some time to enter into a Narnia world of the ‘eternal moment’ as I gently swayed under the ancient trees I could have been anywhere in the world as I watched the clouds creating artworks in the sky as they slowly danced on by.  I eventually meandered home before which I took some time to observe others who’d taken time out of their day to step into this secret world of relaxation in the middle of the busiest cities in the world!  I loved the fact that a lot of them looked like people who have very busy, stressful careers and they were absolutely relishing their time out.

I’ve had some wonderful sessions with clients recently.  What I really love about my work is when clients get clarity on and identify what they’d truly love to create in their lives.  We can be so focused on what we don’t want that when we are asked to really focus on what we would love it’s common for us to let the ‘Oh I can’t have/be/do that’ thoughts get in the way of even thinking about and verbalising what we’d truly love.  As Einstein says ‘Imagination is the preview of life’s coming attractions’.  So just by thinking about and verbalising our dreams we are taking the first step towards their manifestation.  It’s also really worthwhile to become aware of our beliefs, assumptions, limitations and negative thinking because with that awareness we can then choose to spend less time and give less energy to them.  Some of my clients are now so aware of them that I don’t even need to do or say anything – they see them immediately and then choose to get back into the groove of focussing on what they love.

So I’ll end this blog with my four favourite words ‘What would you love?’

With love from London from a very relaxed, happy, blissed out lady,

Summertime for some male, female energy balance

Welcome to my blog.

I thought I’d start again today after a very long gap as I’m in a wonderful stage of coming out of my cocoon, stretching my wings and flying again.

I had a wonderful summer with a lot of time for rest, fun and renewal with friends and family in Ireland and England.  I saw Ireland with fresh eyes and fell more in love with my homeland.  I visited old places and friends in both countries, as well as new places and made many new, wonderful friends.

I am feeling very blessed at the moment, as I’ve been in transition, manifesting a lifelong dream of living by the sea.  I adore London, yet I have been yearning to spend more time in nature, especially by the ocean.  I only went to London for the summer – yet I ended up staying there for 24 years!  As well as making that transition I’ve also had other challenges which I am glad to say I think I am through now.  I didn’t realise how useful my article ‘Seven steps to the life you love’ (click here for more on this) would be on my path when I wrote it back in the spring, yet adhering to it and taking those steps brought me closer towards the light at the end of the tunnel!  (I was the light at the end of the tunnel :) ).

As well as my amazing family, friends and life coach I have to thank the Shaman I studied with many years ago as I visited him for a wonderful session of Sound Healing and a Higher Perception Reading.  This placed me firmly back on my wonderful path and I now have a lot more clarity, direction and confidence along with an increased awareness on the blocks I had been creating for myself!

Since then I’ve been focussing on balancing my own male and female energy.  Everything in the universe has male and female energy, people, things and situations all have male and female energies.  A woman has male energy within and men have female energy.  Although these energies are often in a state of flux, when they are balanced it means that they combine to create manifestations.  It also means that rather than searching for something (or someone) to complete us, we are holistic, healthy, heavenly beings and our world is already complete.  That is when the magic happens as we’ve detached from the outcome as we’re already there.  Act as if kinda thing.

The balance of male and female energy is something which has fascinated me for a long time and I must say it’s been an incredible journey!  I believe that this balance is a key to peace in the world and eventually loving and respecting mother earth as the beautiful living, loving power that she is.

I spent a lot of the summer in quite a relaxing, dreamy, intuitive (feminine or ‘yin’) phase and now I’m moving into a more focussed, outward, action-orientated (masculine or ‘yang’) phase, putting my dreams, visions and ideas out into the world.   I’m at the stage of gratitude and celebration and I feel harmonised, happy and healed.  I’ve created lots more time in my day while still managing to find time to meditate, tune into my visions, practice yoga and run on the beach (or the woods while in London).  This is contributing to the amazing sense of well-being I’m experiencing which is resulting in the manifestation of my dreams and visions!

The challenges of the summer have merely helped me become a stronger, gentler, empathic human being with a lot more knowledge, and love especially of me!  Not only that, but I’ve also managed to fulfil my lifelong dream of living by the sea!

Next comes the detox!

‘For in letting go, your life will be simplified,
And specters of the past will begin to fade.
Then you will feel the slow rekindling of old fires within,
For you will look at the world with new eyes.’
