It’s Time For Spring! 9 Steps To Welcome & Celebrate The New


Dream To Manifestation

After a SUPER powerful full, blood, super, eclipse moon yesterday we have another magical day today – a sandwich of magic love goodness.

I wanted to do a Sage ceremony in my home last night, but it got so late I went to bed – The Lunar Goddess had another idea and not only could I not sleep, but I was gifted with a spurt of energy so went about creating a beautiful ceremony and cleansed my entire home. It felt GOOD – and it feels awesome waking up to a clear home energetically – first time I’ve done it in my new home. the funny, and interesting thing is that when I got back to bed last night there was a screw (yes, like you use to screw things into the wall) literally in my bed, where I lie….  I have NO idea how it got there – I was the only one in my nest last night. Yes, my guides have a wickedly fab sense of humour. When I got back into bed today (I’m having a ‘semi duvet day’), there was a white feather in exactly the same place – crazy eh? Lol. Love it when I’m so connected to the magical, ethereal realms 🙂

[Repost, updated 2017]

Anyway, today is the first day of spring in the northern hemisphere. It is known as “Imbolc” and it is also the feast day of the Goddess Brigid. St. Brigid’s temple is in County Kildare, Ireland and she is the counterpart to Archangel Michael’s warrior energy. She represents the three aspects of woman: the young virgin: child, the nurturing and loving mother: adult, and the sage or wise woman:crone.

Imbolc represents love, new beginnings, trust, and preparing the land (and your life) for new seeds, and growth. The light has returned!

A super powerful day in itself, we also had a full, blood, super, eclipse moon yesterday and we’re still basking in that POWERFUL energy.  We also have Chinese New Year of the Dog fast approaching representing unconditional love.

Sooo, it’s an even more POWERFUL day than any other to envision, dream and release. Think about those new years resolutions, or intentions… meditate on how they are going, celebrate, rather than beat yourself up if you’ve dropped some of them. That’s pretty much natural, so be gentle with yourself and use the power of nature to have another new beginning.

Below are a few suggestions as to how you can make the most of this super powerful transition time.

It’s Time For Spring! 9 Steps To Celebrate The New

  1. Visions Dreams Goals

Write down what you DO want on a white piece of paper. Imagine your life just as you would love it, and get clear on how you would love your ideal day to be. You are preparing the land (your life) for the new…

  1. Let Go

Write down what you want to let go of, and either safely burn the piece of paper or tear it up and throw it away… imagining letting go of what no longer serves you.

Love heart in the trees

  1. Renewal, Rebirth – Focus On The New Light

If you have an altar, put some white items like feathers, shells and candles on it to focus on the new coming into your life. The days are getting longer, the sun is returning. It is a time of renewal, rebirth and cleansing so make the most of this powerful energy. You are energetically and metaphorically making room for the new, while signalling the release of what you do NOT want in your life.

  1. Ceremony

Burn a candle in each room of your home to welcome back in the light of the sun, and the manifestation of your dreams. If you have incense or sage, burn that to clear the energy and space for the new. You can do this a few days either side of February 1. If you have a busy schedule, you can just imagine clearing the energy in your home, and office.

  1. Imagine…

Be real about where you are in relation to your vision, or what you want to manifest, then get clear on what exactly you want 6 months from now. Be as tangible as you can….  How will you DEFINITIVELY know that you have manifested your dream?

  1. Be Present (The Power of Wow… Now)

Be gentle and FEEL what comes up when you see the gap between where you are and what you want… if it’s excitement, GREAT.. if it’s fear or similar, just feel it in your body… just being with it for a few seconds will transform it into POWER to manifest your dream.

  1. Contribute

Think about how you can contribute, if your dream is not already about serving others or the world, then see if you can add that ingredient – it makes manifesting what you love a lot easier! Service is an important ingredient in manifesting what we love.

  1. Breathe!

You have done AMAZING work so far. You have set in stone your new vision. Take a deep breath while making a noise as you breathe in, and out… ideally the word ‘Aloha’ which breathes love and new life, love and divinity into your vision.

  1. TAKE ACTION

Most importantly you must take action every day – even if it’s just IMAGINING your dream. It will not manifest on its own, daily action steps are what creates lasting change and wonderful lives.

The word Imbolc means literally “in the belly” in the old Irish Neolithic language it comes from the pregnant bellies of the ewes. It’s time to trust your dreams and visions that are held in your sacred hara (another word for ‘belly’) CAN come true.

Make sure you are focussing on what you DO want… if figures in politics, or celebrities, or others are triggering you, then bring your attention WITHIN… could this be your creation? Do they represent what you detest? Simply acknowledge that they might be triggering you because they are a teacher to show you what you still need to heal. My favourite line ‘you gotta feel it to heal it’ resonates here. FEEL what they are triggering whether it be anger, fear, hopelessness… breathe into the feeling… then come back to peace (which naturally happens when you just breathe and be with the feeling, rather than analysing it). The external world, mirrors your internal world… it is all just a projection. When you feel amazing, your world is amazing. I promise 🙂

 

Comment below – what does this make you feel?

Does it resonate?

What are the people who irritate you showing you?

What are politicians etc. trying to teach you or show you?

Sharing is caring – please share this with your network.

Muchas love to you beautiful one and Happy spring, Imbolc and St. Brigid’s Day. 

A short blog on happiness and thoughts….


A short blog on happiness and thoughts…

with a quotation from Ashleigh Grace Walkinshaw;

“If people only knew…the divine POWER of their thoughts!

First thing when I wake up is to think of the love, the people and “things” I have to be grateful for.

I pray for them all.

I DECIDE to be happy.

I don’t even get up unless I have a smile on my face.

I laugh a lot – especially when things aren’t necessarily going my way, because they are illusions that won’t last longer than one breath unless I LET it.

When we learn to love ourselves, first, everything changes. Because we love ourselves, we decide to be happy every morning when we wake up, because it just seems like the best choice for remaining positive all day.

It makes us glow and people will remark about it often.

Everyone wants to know why I’m so happy all the time and I say, “Because I want to be.” Is there a better reason?

You see, it all has to do with Divine Intent.

If I have divine intent, then ALL my relationships are divine. They are truth based. I bring happiness with me, it is not a burden I place on the shoulders of loved ones.

You are not responsible for my happiness – I am.

It IS a discipline, something to practice every day until it becomes normal habit.

Unless you are a fortunate one born with the “happy gene”.

It is really not as complicated as we can make it.”

Overflowing with LOVE


Aloha

 

I was just about to message one of my mentors, and ask what to do when I feel totally overcome with love… which happens a lot recently.

 

The answer that came to me before… and again now, was this… share it.
So here I am – blogging – writing, with no idea where this is going … which is one of my favourite tings…. Making shit up. Good shit though. Sorry, but that’s pretty much the only word that will suffice right now… but it’s GOOD shit… ha ha, well I hope so; I hope it’s good for you.  (a little ‘ps.’ here… in a totally inappropriate place… but if you’ve got writer’s block, or you want to tell a story… just start ‘making it up’… it’s another word for channeling… let me know how you get on, and if I’m making no sense at all, pop a comment below or ask me and I’ll explain more about this – but believe me, it’s magic… when you’re making ‘good’ stuff up.).

 

So, what are you making up? Do you make up good stuff?

 

When you’re feeling blue, what do you make up?

 

You see, something I realized recently was that our feelings come first, then the thoughts… often we have a feeling, and rather than just having it – feeling it… we make stuff up about it. We define ourselves, others or the world depending on the feeling. Often those thoughts really don’t serve us and enhance the shit feeling.

 

Howeverrrr…. I know that very often when I had a really GOOD feeling.. like I was feeling AMAZING my little (?!) ego, mind whatever you want to call it, would still make bad shit up! So, I’d find myself going ‘OMG I’m SO happy’, and then I’d hear my internal voice, or gremlin as I started to call it say something like; “Ah yes, but what about….”… (fill in the blank).  My ego/mind would choose an area of my life I could worry about and my great feeling would totally dissipate and be replaced by a feeling of doom, fear, worry etc.

 

FREEDOM!

Right now though, I’m sitting in the evening sun, it’s a summery balmy evening, the sun is about an hour from setting, I can smell the oceanic fresh aroma, and feel the sensual salty sea breeze on my cheek.  The birds are flying around my head, choosing where to settle tonight, the kids are playing down below –only a few weeks into the summer, yet about 75 shades browner than a few weeks ago before the summer break.

Life is good.
I am a lucky lady.

Right now, I feel gratitude, love, and a renewed faith in the words:

 

I’m sorry

Please forgive me

Thank you

I love you.

Follow Your Bliss & Resistance


Follow Your Bliss & Resistance

The journey from the head to the heart is one of the hardest journeys you can take, such a short distance, but what a journey!

I have just realised that it’s not the promise of my dreams manifesting that keeps me going.  At long last, it’s actually the journey itself that I’m enjoying.  So many of my dreams have manifested – and they are even better than I ever imagined, and I’m excited to see the magic that emerges on the path of many, many more manifesting.  What I’m learning to love more than the destination, are the learnings, adventures and growth walking the path that inspire and excite my heart and soul.
It reminds me of the words inscribed above the entrance of the Temple at Delphi, Greece; the oracle: “Above all else, know thyself.”  Luckily, with that knowing comes self love…..

“Follow your bliss.
If you do follow your bliss,
you put yourself on a kind of track
that has been there all the while waiting for you,
and the life you ought to be living
is the one you are living.
When you can see that,
you begin to meet people
who are in the field of your bliss,
and they open the doors to you.
I say, follow your bliss and don’t be afraid,
and doors will open
where you didn’t know they were going to be.
If you follow your bliss,
doors will open for you that wouldn’t have opened for anyone else.”  

Joseph Campbell

 

Resistance (Or The ‘Resist Dance’ if you’re avoiding it)

All sorts of resistance can crop up on the heart path.  The resistance comes cloaked in many disguises; illness, blocks, doubts, beliefs, challenges, accidents and so on and so forth.

I made a short video about this, but I’d love to know how Resistance shows up in your life and what you do about it.

 

Update

After I made this video, I continued to be gentle with myself, and the day after, I woke up between 5 & 6 am (my bliss time), I downloaded some ideas and wrote for an hour.  Then I got up and made myself some breakfast to take to the beach, walked the dog on the beach and cliffs for about an hour, went for a swim (!!! my TOTAL bliss !!! but something I strangely don’t do too often even though the beach is at the end of my road). Then I wrote my ‘artists pages’; simply put three pages of whatever flows out onto the page; it’s a wonderful way to clear the mind and start the day (a la Julia Cameron in ‘The Artist’s Way’).  Oh yes, and I had my toasted brie sandwich when I came out of the water – HEAVEN, it was still warm as it had been in the sun all that time.  Cold disappeared… seems like I’ve moved through my resistance 😉

Note to self, write another blog soon about ‘ascension symptoms’ (illnesses that appear as the vibration of the planet and OUR vibration rise), but they are not ‘normal’ illness, and with TLC can disappear almost instantly.  They can manifest as tiredness, lethargy, depression, insomnia, illness of any kind…  they are all down to our vibration changing. The more you attach to ‘the illness you ‘think’ you have, the more power you’re giving it, and the more it will manifest. Instead, have a choice above all else to ‘be healthy’.

Feel free to connect with me if you’d like to learn how to have a love, rather than fear motivated focus, so that you manifest amazing health all the time, guided by the intuition and heart.

OMG I feel amaaaazing now, considering the change I’ve experienced in less than 24 hours just through doing what I love.

I LOVEEEE you!

 

 

 

 

Chocolate Ceremony For Clarity… 2


Yum yum yum… well I’m still in Ceremony, but I wanted to share my heart and the space I’m in.. . which is still ‘in between’.  I feel happier, I had a BIG ‘aha’ moment during which the fairy lights in my bedroom which have been on and off for a while, but off for at least a month or two started working again!  Lol.  It was metaphorical for the fact that WE can start working (being on a high vibration, lit up, bringing SUCH incredible JOY), with the simplest little adjustment and checking in.  That’s what happened with my lights, it was just ONE little bulb that had broken – there was actually not even any glass in it, so I took it out, and replaced it…da naaaa … bringing SUCH inredible joy, light and love….

Napoleon & I

Napoleon & I

I’m more in tune with my emotions, and I feel a heaviness, which translates as the emotion of sadness in my heart….
Still seeing where this is going.
Curious.
Being gentle.
Happy to have my adorable doggy companion Napoleon to be with me as the space holder today.

 

Love

Chocolate Ceremony For Clarity…


“Document the moments you feel most in love with yourself –

What you’re wearing, who you’re around, what you’re doing.

Recreate and repeat”

Warsan Shire

I am feeling like it’s ‘a day out of time’ – the day which is in between one Mayan calendar and another.  I remember my first experience of feeling this way – I had no idea it was a day out of time, but I FELT it… I am feeling it again today.

Nowadays, it is SO rare for me to do a private chocolate ceremony…  there was a time when I’d do one almost every day!

I am doing one today, and it feels like SUCH a treat.  What’s so funny, is that I was totally sure I’d run out of my Ceremonial Grade Guatemalan (Mayan) chocolate but I just found a little stash, specially for this sacred ceremony 🙂

 

I’ve felt so ‘in between’ worlds the last few weeks, even though I’ve been spending a lot of time with friends and family visiting – I’ve still felt very ‘dreamlike’.  I have a hiatus today… so I’m going into chocolate dream time and my intention is to come out awakened the other side… I have much to tune into.  So many choices, so many paths ahead of me…

I am very much looking forward to the experience.

If you are being guided to do yoga, have a ceremony, or do whatever, which you know is great for your wellness, please pay attention.  We ARE in a most powerful week astrologically, energetically – as above, so below.  Pay heed, be gentle to yourself, and LOVE you!

Exciting times.

Thank you for allowing me to share my ‘in between’ state… I set the intention that whatever you do, when you read this, will honour your HIGHEST path, your heart and soul.  Honour where YOU are!  The energies are gentler now, but still, as with The Spirit of Cacao… they are gentle yet POWERFUL!

If you are aware of your negative beliefs, it is soooo so so so important to focus on the opposite of those ‘normal’ default negative beliefs… I AM WORTHY LOVABLE CAPABLE I AM ENOUGH… etc. etc. etc.

So, whatever your predominant negative belief is about yourself, focus on the things that demonstrate the opposite, look at what you’ve created so far in your life, take that as proof of your Greatness.  Be the adorable, loving, compassionate, FUN adult to your inner child.

I love you.

Please share this so that others can also be in this ‘time of no time’ and come out the other side the shining radiant light being that they are in essence.

See you on the other side… let me know how YOUR journey is going.

I will report back the other side, and join me in Ceremony to sample this magical elixir and create YOUR beautiful life.

The Feast Day of Saint Mary Magdalene


Jesus & Mary Magdalene

I feel raw today.  Like all the “stuff” I’ve cleared and felt over the last few years is coming up in a jingle of raw emotion to be felt and cleared again.  That’s A LOT of emotion!

 

I’ve been feeling so totally on top of the world, I held a ceremony on Saturday, and as facilitator, apart from the intention of serving the groups’ hearts and souls, I was curious about holding onto my light, high vibration.  The guidance I got was that the emotions come and go, nothing right, nothing wrong.  Back to ‘The Magic of Flow’.

Yesterday was the start of a day and a half with no plans, not seeing friends, no play, no sessions – just ME with myself.

 

Life has been a whirlwind of total bliss the last few weeks, since I stepped through a level of fear and journeyed from my gorgeous home, leaving my doggy, and embarking on what I thought would be a bit of a grim visit to London (cos I didn’t want to go).

In fact, my ego tried to prevent me from going with all sorts of stuff coming up including a physical pain so bad, I had to take a painkiller the day I flew (I have taken about 3 painkillers in the last 5/6 years – they are NOT a part of my life).  You see I know there’s always a message in illness, and it’s simply a disconnection from source.

However, I could not get an answer to why on earth I was getting this unbearable earache.  Once I took the painkiller and had a nap (great for the inner child), I woke up and had a loving chat with myself.  I woke without pain, and it was bliss.  What I realised was that I had created the pain, and it was a subtle, yet very uncomfortable form of self sabotage.

Now that I’ve been on my adventure for nearly three weeks, I can honestly say that I’ve had the best time ever!  I’ve created some wonderful Ceremonies, met new, amazing people, connected in deep ways, and not so deep ways with beautiful hearts and oh so, so much more!  I realise now, that my ego did not want me to follow my heart; the ego is simply about SURVIVAL.  It is not motivated to encourage you to be MAGNIFICENT, step up and follow your dreams.

 

So, today, as I sit with my vulnerability, and a dose of sadness, there’s a myriad of realisations coming to me.  This time last year, I was probably in one of the toughest times of my life emotionally, physically, spiritually, and mentally.  I’d been in a space of attracting ‘bullies’ into my life.  This was NOT something I was used to.  I was also in a space of being a ‘good person’, so when almost publicly humiliated I did not fight back.  I had no idea how to deal with it, but all that time I felt the presence of Saint Mary Magdalene with me and the message that kept coming to me was this:

No matter what people said about her (they called her a prostitute and a  sinner), she never defended herself – because if she had done, it would be sinking to lower levels of human bickering, judgement and chaos.  Doreen Virtue wrote about Saint Mary Magdalene, and she appears as one of the Goddesses in her wonderful Oracle Cards, she says; ‘The lower levels of human bickering, judgement and chaos are just that; lower levels.  I choose to do my work from the level of the higher consciousness, where love reigns supreme.  It’s here where the most good can be done, and I urge you to do the same.  Where you dwell in consciousness, is where you truly dwell.  So, focus your thoughts on the good things that you can find in people, and rise above all appearances otherwise……  Call upon her for forgiveness, and opening your heart to more love.”

What I learned, especially today, as I feel old feelings of sadness, and even some anger bubbling up, is that gentleness is the path.  We need to feel the whole gamut of emotions, the trick is not to get stuck there, as Joseph Campbell so eloquently said ‘Pain is inherent, suffering is optional.’

 

I have a sweet feeling of grace and gratitude in my heart, because guaranteed, at the other side of where I am today is more joy, love and bliss that I could have possibly felt before.  Even as I write about where I am, and sip my Sacred Cacao Elixir the feelings are transmuting into clarity on my dreams, and creations.  There is also a gentle power in my root chakra, which is coming up to allow me to step more and more into my power, and create the dreams I was ignoring.  When I ignored those dreams (especially last year), I attracted those with bullying energy into my life so I would awaken to the next stage of my power.

Feeling overawed, and full of joy for the gifts of clarity, love and peace – Happy feast day of Saint Mary Magdalene!

What I’ve learned today, is that The Magic of Flow is like waves, all emotions come and go, it’s as natural as the rhythm of the ocean.  Just remember, that at the other side of a feeling which might feel uncomfortable, are the feelings that you love… and they will be more juicy and powerful than you might have ever felt before.  That’s what you create, when you have the strength and power to allow it all.

 

If you feel a connection with Mary,  take a couple of minutes today to just sit and feel your heart.  There’s no ‘right way’ to do it, just simply sit and remember it.  When you hug a child, you don’t think ‘Am I doing it right?’  It’s the same with loving yourself, and honouring your heart, just take a couple of moments and breathe… and allow the smile in your heart to find you, and as it does feel the smile spread all over your body….. and the world.

 

 

Thank you to all my teachers, coaches, mentors, and especially those who came along to show me where I was afraid and not in my power as the Divine Creator Being I AM… and you are too!

Have you or do you feel a connection to Saint Mary Magdalene, please feel free to share.  I’d love to know more.

 

So much love,

Gerri

 

 

Stress Anxiety Depression…. 10 Steps To Relief


At this time of the year many can find themselves suffering from stress, depression and anxiety.  Although it feels like they’re DOING lots, as they rush around, often they don’t feel very productive.  With demands in many areas of their life, feeling like a hamster on a wheel they realise that when it is time to relax, it’s not so easy, with insomnia, or low quality sleep and when the holidays arrive they often end up ill!

The ramifications are that they don’t reach their potential on any level; mental, emotional, physical or spiritual…. but they DO suffer on many levels.

Stress Statistics

*   A recent survey showed that heart disease is the No. 1 killer of women, and is actually more deadly than all forms of cancer combined.

*   40% of all work-related illnesses were caused by stress.

*   The main causes of stress are:

*  Job Pressure

*  Money

*  Health

*  Relationships

*  Poor Nutrition

*  Sleep Deprivation

*  Media Overload (which probably moves up the scale at times like this).

If you find those statistics shocking, beware you don’t hit the other end of the scale and choose to do nothing as this can make you more unhappy than anything!

“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant.  We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.”  Albert Einstein

“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift
And the rational mind is a faithful servant.
We have created a society that honors the servant
And has forgotten the gift.”
Albert Einstein

 

New Habits

It’s never too late to create a new life, to choose the life you love, the state of mind you would like to experience EVERY single day.

Deepak Chopra who bridges the worlds of allopathic and alternative health, in his wonderful book ‘Timeless Body, Ageless Mind’ says that the cells in our body are constantly regenerating so we actually have a new body every 7 years!

So why do some people continue to manifest the same illnesses? Their thoughts and feelings stay the same; negative, so the same illnesses manifest.  This often happens down through generations of families as we learn the same way to cope – or not cope with stress!

There’s a strong connection with how we relate to the aging process, how we respond to the world, our minds, our emotions and spirituality… and ‘spirituality’ can be as simple as taking a deep, conscious breath…

There are some really easy, quick, wonderful ways to allow you to stop and smell the coffee… and unfortunately one of them isn’t drinking coffee (unless you drink it in moderation, and treat it as a sacred act – my personal tip :).

Here are the 10 Steps To Relief, and a Life of Flow, Joy, Fun & More…

10. Create A ‘Ta Da’ List

Rather than a ‘to do’ list, this is a list of the things you’d like to accomplish in a time period, and focus on how you’d love your life, year, week, or day to be.  

Start with a three year period, then two years, one year, 6 months, 3 months, 1 month, 1 week …..  Then focus on each day, then work in 3 hour periods and really FOCUS on an end result you’d like to accomplish…. IGNORE anything else. This is a facebook, telephone, text FREE zone 🙂 Ensure you tick things off as you achieve them, psychologically this is a very powerful thing to do, then happily say ‘ta da’, as you achieve another thing on the list 😉

 

9. Pamper Yourself

There are so many wonderful therapies available which address the mind body and spirit including Shiatsu, Reiki, Reflexology, Aromatherapy Massages and float tanks. If you can do this weekly, I highly recommend it, but at least monthly.

Simply having the appointment in your calendar will feel sooo good.  Make sure to take some time out for YOU afterwards as you’ll be in a super high state of consciousness. Journal, write or just BE and enjoy nature.  Find a good, registered practitioner through recommendation or word of mouth.

 

8. Meditate & Breathe Deeply

If you think you haven’t got time to meditate, simply …. Breathe! It’s as simple as that!

There’s so many benefits to meditation, but if you are a buzzy bee, then let me tell you that ‘time management’ has got nothing to do with the solution, time doesn’t exist so how can you manage it?  What needs to be managed is YOU, and your energy.  After meditation, and connecting with your soul and higher self, this is sooo much easier.

Just take a moment and focus on your breath from time to time.

“If you can’t afford to meditate for 20’ a day, then do it for 40” 

Said the Zen Buddhist monk to the buzzy student

Taking 40 deep breaths a day is a wonderful way to slow things down, gain clarity, and give the mind a rest.

This allows inspiration to pop into your head. Have you ever experienced that magic, when you’ve been ‘trying’ to work something out, or remember something, or wait for a creative idea to manifest, as soon as you stop trying it happens! Even for the buzziest person you can take those breaths while on the train, the loo, or in a meeting.

Another great breathing exercise is to take a couple of 7/11 breaths, or 4/5. Breathe in for the count of 7 (or 4), hold for a few seconds, then breathe out for the count of 11 (or 5).  Do this a few times, and notice how differently you are experiencing the world.

You see it’s impossible to think and breathe deeply at the same time… so you’re allowing divine inspiration and ‘aha’ moments to arise in between the thoughts.

Breathing deeply slows down the heart, which in turn slows down the mind.

It’s great for digestion too, as the deep breathing actually massages your digestive organs.

 

FAVOURITE QUOTATIONS….

BREATHE!

BREATHE!

‎” If people only knew…the divine POWER of their thoughts!  

First thing when I wake up is to think of the love, the people and “things” I have to be grateful for.

I pray for them all.

I DECIDE to be happy.

7. Create A Morning Ritual

I highly recommend a three part morning ritual which totally changed my life and moved me from a place of total despair, to really taking my life by the wotsits and creating a beautiful, successful, dream come true life.….

It goes like this… If you possibly can, get up when you wake up, if it’s humanly possible, this may take working up to, but the main three points are as follows:

i. Drink half a litre of water on waking.

Your body is dehydrated, so this is a great way to start the day.

ii. Exercise for 30 mins, anything that increases your heart rate.

I usually take the dog for a walk, and do a few mins of yoga afterwards, followed by meditation or ‘tuning in’ (feel free to ask if you’d like more info on this).  Regular exercise shifts our mental, emotional, physical and spiritual bodies so that we are operating more to our highest potential AND it gives you the sense that there’s more hours in the day!  It seems counter intuitive that we’d have more energy if we exercised in the morning, but it is a fact.

iii. Have a healthy, nourishing breakfast.

I favour a smoothie with lots of magic ingredients, in season fruit, along with a selection of cacao, spirulina, maca, hemp seeds (ground up) and whatever else takes my fancy. Sometimes I add ‘Tree of Life’ (also known as moringa), echinacea, and whatever else takes my fancy.  I follow my intuition as to what my body needs, and it’s a great way to start the day creating a divine beverage.

If you can do these three things every morning, then your life WILL change.

It takes 30 days to make a habit, permanent, after day two you will probably experience resistance/excuses as to why you can’t do it, but I promise, if you stick to it, you WILL be clearly on the path to creating the life you love.  I usually allow myself one day off a week and I actually really feel the difference on that day, but it also feels good to have a lie in for a change.

 

6. Go To Bed When You’re Tired

Insomnia and sleeping disorders are often caused because the body is pushed BEYOND the point of being tired, so adrenaline kicks in and an unnatural surge of energy drives the body so that when bedtime comes, it’s impossible to sleep.  

When you’re tired, go to bed, and avoid screens (tv, computer, phone) for 1-2 hours beforehand if you can.  On average we sleep much, much longer than necessary.  I think it’s good to sleep when you need to, and I really encourage napping, but it’s a fallacy that we need 8 hours sleep a night.  According to many surveys that the Sleep Institute in California have run, apparently we live longer AND we’re healthier when we sleep for 6-7 hours.  Geniuses generally slept for 3-4 hours, so if you are waking up at ungodly, or goddessly hours, use the time, be creative!  Many are downloading new light, information and codes as we shift dimensionally and vibrationally, so sleep patterns are changing – just be gentle with yourself.  If you’re exercising, and sleeping enough you’re pretty much onto a winner!

 

5. Eat Slowly

Focus on good masturcation. If you suffer from bad digestion, IBS or any digestive disorders, then consider a new way of dining.

Throw away the computers, magazines and television while you eat…. okay not literally, but really, switch them off, put the book or newspaper or even radio away.

Sit down at a table, RELAX, eat slowly, chewing every bite, and consciously LOVING the food.

Then when you’ve finished, and this is v v v important, remember to relax for at least a few minutes as your body is still digesting.

This gives your body the chance to get the goodness from your food.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine terms, the spleen has the job of digesting the food. Its other job is concentrating, thinking and focussing. So, if you’re busy reading, watching tv etc. then your spleen is overworked as it’s trying to do two jobs at once (ie. thinking/focussing and digesting… both separating good from not good).

When I worked as a Practitioner in the NHS and Harley Street, I had a lot of stressed clients with digestive disorders. Once they were aware of this, and changed their dining habits, their symptoms disappeared AND they enjoyed their mealtimes more too!

You could also light a candle, and add a bit of romance to your dining experience… even if it’s just you!

 

4. Drink Water

Drink between 1.5 and 2 litres of water per day.

Dehydration is actually the most common cause of headaches, lethargy and tiredness.

Often when you THINK you’re hungry, you’re actually thirsty.  Keep a bottle on your desk, and drink, drink, drink!

 

3. Become AWARE

Awareness is a very rare state, usually it’s only gained when we have a shock or a NDE (near death experience).  When we experience ‘Awareness’, through an accident, or a shock, we have the realisation that life is really too short, and immediately we want to call those we love and let them know how much we value them.  It also allows us to get clear on what’s important in our life.  It is a beautiful state where we can stop and assess our lives, and get clear on what’s important.

It is a state that we can choose, sometimes after meditation or a pampering treatment, we might be in a higher state of consciousness which allows for awareness.

If I’m ever feeling stressed or rushed, I sit down and breathe.  Then I write down what it is exactly that would make me happy and what I’m grateful for.  It’s a miraculously powerful consciousness changer.

 

2. Choose ‘Being Healthy’ As Your Main Focus

Your soul, your intuition knows what to do to be healthy. When your focus is on avoiding illness, or being fat, or whatever, your focus is STILL on what you don’t want to create.

Rather than focussing on … “I want to avoid being ill”, or “I won’t eat (… Fill in the blank…) because it causes (… Fill in the blank…), instead, focus on what you WOULD love.  LOVE the food you eat, even if you’re tempted to have a McDonalds – have it without guilt.

The job of the subconscious is to simply create where our focus is, consciously, or subconsciously.  Focus on the higher.

Many people who have had NDEs got clarity on this, how they spent their entire lives living in FEAR – avoiding things!   Anita Moorjani, in her book ‘Dying To Be Me’ saw that all her life her focus was on AVOIDING illness, yet she got ill. So everything she did was fear-motivated, causing unhappiness, illness and a miserable life.

 

1. Be Realistic! Dream BIG….

Stay busy, but set goals. If you’re not in a job you love, then do something about it. Find a mentor or someone to guide you to discovering your strengths, talents and gifts.

Why not challenge yourself but make sure you have plenty of time so you feel in control of the situation. This is how games feel. Games are fun!  Especially ones based on imagination and fun!

If there’s a hobby or a pastime you’d love to start, then take the first steps, make a phone call, google it.

 

ENJOY YOUR LIFE… and please share this with your friends.

 

A Woman In Your Power


What does it mean to mean to be ‘In Your Power’?

I have a confession to make, even though one of my passions is guiding other women to their power, I’m really only starting to understand what it means!  A few months ago a Shaman told me I was about to come into another level of my power, and I politely nodded.  I was going through a difficult patch, and even though I’m used to imagining and dreaming, I do so every day, I couldn’t see that end result… as I didn’t know what it looked like, felt like, or what on earth I’d be doing when I was in this new level of power.

It’s only recently that I have really understood it when I took time out to have a private chocolate ceremony, so I could use this medicine to allow me to dive deeper and rise higher towards my soul’s knowing.  So, I asked the question and remembered to leave space for the answer and guidance….

After a while, a memory came to me – it was of a book I read when I was in Hawaii.  ‘The Bowl of Light’, by Hank Wesselman.  In it, he shares the wisdom of one of his teachers; Hale Makua a wise Hawaiian Kahuna.  When Hale Makua had been asked “What does it mean for women to reclaim their power?”  This is what he said;

“It is time for all the women to come together to generate a new vision.  They must dream a new dream – a new vision that must be about what they want for their grandchildren and for the next seven generations.”

That is what is meant by the statement that ‘each of us must become the change that we wish to experience.’  There simply is no other way.  If we wish to create a new and better world, we must dream our new world into being… and then we must act on our dreams to bring them into manifestation through ourselves.”

 
“Love all you see, including yourself.” Hale Makua

How strongly does this resonate?

When we’re clear on our vision or dream, (Yin, or the feminine principle), and that meets with action (Yang, the masculine principle), there is no other path, than that dream to manifest.  In creating and manifesting, there are some more alchemical guidelines, but that’s pretty much the foundation and the structure.

That male / female interaction can be within us, as we all hold both masculine and feminine energy, or in our external world.  An ideally balanced man or woman will have the ability to dream AND take action, thus manifesting their vision.

 

I always read these two quotations when I start working with someone to overcome a problem, and create the life they DO love.  The first one is from the book “The Secrets & Mysteries of Hawaii: A Call to the Soul”, by Pila of Hawaii, and the other is from the successsful, business oriented Stephen Covey, author of “The 7 Habits of Highly Successful People”.

 

The Legend of the Green Flash from Pila’s book;

“All came from the Dreamtime, the source of all reality.

Nothing would be in the world unless it were first dreamed of.

The Dreamers are those who lead the way.

They are closer to the Maker.

They lift us from the place of suffering and hopelessness, transforming the ordinary earthly experience into a playground of the Divine.”

And Stephen Covey;

‘Successful people begin with the end in mind.’

As I write this blog, it feels amazing to know that it CAN be so simple.  When we master our thoughts and feelings, and choose words and actions that come from true love, we will create the world which we love.  It takes will, and it’s not always easy to create from love, rather than fear, but let me remind you of the difficult times you’ve been through, the work you’ve done on yourself – NOW it is the time of POWER.  It’s payback time, put what you’ve learned to use, be curious, play, this is a groovy adventure, and start by reminding yourself that we are all actors on a stage, playing parts we CHOSE to play.

9 Steps To Connect With Your Power

1. Daydream.  Imagine… !  Ask yourself the question ‘What is it that I love?’

2. CHOOSE it.  Choices are powerful. You are letting the subconscious mind (responsible for our healing and creations (good or bad)) know that THAT is what you wish to create.

3. Ground your visions, dreams and choices with action.  What’s the obvious next step to take, to manifest that vision?  Get clarity on your ‘Ideal Day’ and write it down.  What time do you get up, do you exercise, meditate?  Who do you see?  What work are you doing?  Etc. Etc.  Then choose it and live it (some days at least).

4. Take obvious action to fulfil your dreams.  So for example, if your ideal day starts at 6/7 am with meditation or yoga, DO IT!  Or if you’d like to visit Hawaii, then start dreaming about that, affirm in your speech that you will do so.

A few years ago, on my first night in Hawaii, I was about to start a training in Hawaii with Serge Kahili King who I’d dreamt of training with for many, many years.  I was searching through my emails and I found the first email message I’d ever sent him (many years before, when I had absolutely no clue how on earth I could get there on holiday, never mind manifest a Visa to live there).  It blew my mind!  I was enquiring about his Shamanic trainings, and the last paragraph I’d wrote was along the lines of this…  ‘You’re so very lucky living in Hawaii, what is it like?  One day I’ll live there too!’  It blew my mind, and I did study with him, and I spent a long time living there, which as you can imagine, was a totally life changing experience!  I remembered writing that email after I found it, and I was very well aware that those words were powerful, that I was putting a wish out to the Universe and my own soul.

5. Inspire other women to step into their power!

6. Write, create, do what you love.

7. Be curious about you and your life when you are in your power.

8. Follow, and speak your heart.

9. Learn how to keep your centre, when all the world is losing theirs.  Breathe.  Practice chi kung or tai chi.  When you’re operating from your centre, you automatically operate from the heart.

 

I just want to add, that for many years, I was actually afraid of the possibility of being in my power.  Even the phrase ‘in your power’ brought doubts up because I didn’t have positive associations for what I thought a woman in her power was!  A lot of my female ancestors were amazing women, and they were also very powerful.  They had strength, but it wasn’t always motivated by love, they could be very scary and controlling at times.  As I’ve shone the light on the fact that I also have this in me, I can choose to operate from love, rather than fear.  When I shone the light on these fears, it allowed me to recoup all the power that could be used to create what I love, and a better world.

Knowing when you’re motivated by love or fear is a great compass, because when you’re in your power, you will also need to speak your truth.  Being aware that when you express what you would love, it might not always be met with nodding heads and agreement, however when you are true to your own heart, then my beautiful women YOU ARE IN YOUR POWER.

As long as we’re constantly moving towards creating more love and happiness in our life, while rooted in the Present, we have the key.

 

Doubt, Fear, Procrastination etc. will always be there, we need to create regardless.

This is what I said to someone in a session earlier today.  She is fairly and squarely on the Shamanic Priestess path, and is just coming more and more into her Power, gleaning learnings from a great period of growth…..

Butterfly, Symbol Of Our Spiritual

Transformation

http://www.mysticmamma.com/the-butterfly-is-the-symbol-of-mans-spiritual-transformation/

“In Hopi lore, the butterfly is the symbol of man’s spiritual transformation.
‘At the level of existence, when it crawls on Mother Earth in the form of a caterpillar, it only sees what is right in front of it,’ Grandmother Mona explains. ‘There comes a time in the development when it puts itself into a little cocoon and enters the darkness. In this darkness, it completely breaks down. During that time a great change takes place…”

“‘Finally it emerges into this world, into this life as a beautiful creature,’ Grandmother Mona says. ‘Yet it doesn’t immediately fly away. It sits there as if to be making a connection again with the elements of life: the water, the air, the fire, the earth. Then there is a moment when its wings start fluttering, developing movement, developing strength within itself using these elements of life. 

‘When the moment comes and the butterfly takes flight, it suddenly sees the world from a completely different point of view, a view of vaster beauty and a much, much wider worldview. This is what I was told about being a butterfly.’

“…Grandmother Mona believes the Hopi legend of the butterfly can see us through these turbulent times of darkness and confusion by revealing to us our path of transformation. 

“These times can actually be viewed as necessary to enable humanity as a whole to transform into a comprehension of the truth of our oneness with each other and with all of Creation.
“Only by going into darkness and breaking down our old ways can we move from the myopic view of the caterpillar to the greatly expanded view of the butterfly~ a necessary view if we are to save the beauty and resources of our planet for the next seven generations to come.

“Then we will have emerged out of the darkness of ignorance into the beauty of the butterfly to see the wonder, hope, compassion, faith, and charity so essential for our survival.”
~Grandmother Mona Polacca from Carol Schaefer’s book Grandmothers Counsel the World: Women Elders Offer Their Vision for Our Planet
