Hello, hello, helloooo…
What a day…
A full moon – and it’s a Supermoon, Blue Moon, AND we have an eclipse too (only viewable in Hawaii).
Oh my Lord …
SO, what does this all mean? Well, it means it’s an opportunity to return to love… to you … to YOUR GREATNESS.
You see, recently we’ve been walking almost like a maze… but instead of it being flat on the ground, it’s a spiral maze… the more you stay focussed on your vision, the easier the journey, because you know – no matter what appears on your path it is for the highest good. When you look back on your apparent ‘tough’ times – the hardest times of your life, most people would not change them – because of the learnings. So if you’re having a rough ole time, just look at it like a schoolroom… see that you are in learning mode… the teacher – is the person who is causing you distress/difficulty. Now I do not mean if someone is actually abusing/harming you – that is a situation you generally need to move away from. What I’m taking about here are situations where people are pushing your buttons, making you feel uncomfortable – triggering emotions like anger, sadness, shame, grief, frustration, anxiety etc.). I will correct my wording there though – because NOBODY can make you feel anything. It is your definition of the situation, what you are making up about what is happening, and your choice to feel what you are feeling. That’s what makes you feel emotions. Whatever the situation, be it your health, relationships, finances, business… whatever you are finding challenging – is actually a giant opportunity to :
1. Get clarity on/Focus on the vision of what you WOULD love.
2. Be clear and real about where you are in relation to that (sets up ‘creative tension’ as described in Robert Fritz’s amazing book ‘The Path of Least Resistance’ which I HIGHLY recommend).
3. Be gentle on you and take steps every single day towards manifesting your VISION.
Are you ‘In Your Power’?
That is what ‘being in your power’ actually means – having clarity on your vision, and taking steps towards it! How cool and empowering is that?
So, there you have it in a nutshell. Have clarity that you are simply in this aMAZE-ing place and you are spiralling UPWARDS and moving closer and closer to what you love. You need to stay committed to your vision. If you would like clarity on your vision, then feel free to connect with me and book a slot for a complimentary ‘Launch Your Awesome’ now (click here) to get clarity on YOUR big vision, how you’re standing in your way, and the next step to take to create an aweeesome life!
Aloha beautiful you – have an amazeing day and create some time for you to just be and stare at the lunar magic and dreaming your dream! x
Sharing is caring – please share this on your social networks – share the joy, inspiration and magic.
Thank you! x
Which picture speaks to you?
Take a moment and see which one jumps at you.
Then scroll down, for the message below….
1. The Cliff – Take A Leap
This week is all about focus… are you aware that when you have a thought, or a belief, that your consciousness will search for evidence to prove that to you…. Sooo, if you think people are horrid, or the Government is a certain way, or you are not worthy, lovable or good enough – then your consciousness will find evidence of that.
So it’s really important this week to look for evidence of what you love, or what you would love to manifest so that not only will your consciousness seek and find, but also so that you will start CREATING the experiences you DO want.
Faith it and you’ll make it.
2. Dolphin Love
This week you will find ways to actually put your dreams into action… take steps towards manifesting your dream home. Remember though, that not only is home where the heart is, but most importantly you must be at home in your own heart first, to feel at home anywhere.
Dolphins represent unconditional love, and fun. Where can you incorporate those qualities more in your family, friends and business/work connections? It time to take a trip or adventure? There’s nothing like returning home afterwards to appreciate the magic you actually already have!
3. Spiral Healing
The spiral is an ancient symbol of health, healing and journeying… it is a symbol represented in our very DNA. We are changing as a species and our planet is changing too. Be gentle with yourself this week because you will feel the emotions of others, and Mother Earth DEEPLY. Drink a lot of pure water, imbue your food and drink with love, consume it with gratitude and consciousness. Remember balance is important this week as we build to a full moon. Aloha!
Your connections with humans, hearts and nature is increasing. Honour your sacred connections, especially with the natural world including spirits of trees, flowers, angels and sprites. Use the ancient Shamanic technique of gazing where you just focus without blinking (as much as you can) for 5-15 minutes on one spot. Have fun with it! You might just see some magic 😉
Have a fabulous week! Share this with your friends – that is what I’d love. Let’s share messages of love and inspiration to overwhelm the world with the magic that is already here. Remember ‘FOCUS CREATES REALITY’!
Leave a comment below – thank you for visiting!
Happy New Year! 2017
Step into that new year with a sparkly sashay and smile 😉
Here’s a little message a suggestion on how you can create your bestest year so far.
It’s a three part process that can take anything from 10 seconds to an hour if you want to devote that time to it. It’s a great way to close the year, and move into a new year, refreshed, renewed and READY for the best so far.
The way you CREATE is focus… focussing on what you DO want… so this will assist you in getting clarity, and letting go of what you do NOT want to focus on 😉
Subscribe to my channel to get vids as they are released… and make 2017 your BEST YEAR.
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.

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:
Please forgive me
I love you.

I loveeee you wonderful being!
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….
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.
Happy to have my adorable doggy companion Napoleon to be with me as the space holder today.
“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”
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!
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.

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.
* 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
* 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!
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.
” 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 wont 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.” Ashleigh Grace Walkinshaw
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.
What has Rebirth, Renewal and Acclimatising to the New got to do with Easter?
Well, for me, Easter is the real bridge between wintry evenings, and more fun, lighter, warmer, productive days. In the Christian tradition, there is a mourning of the death of Christ on Good Friday, followed by celebration for his resurrection on Easter Sunday.
Easter was originally a time to celebrate Ishtar, the Goddess of fertility and sex believe it or not! The symbols we are all familiar with are bunnies and eggs, and of course the wonderful chocolate, so it kinda fits eh?
As we are all holding and illuminating the Christ Consciousness within, I like to consider the rebirth of Christ as a time to honour our path and our light. It’s a great time to consider what we’d like to let go of, and then allow space for a rebirth into the new. At the bottom of this post I share a wonderful ‘Rebirth’ exercise to do which guides you into YOUR new.
In winter we go into the void, nights get longer, darker, colder and it is a time of hibernation and soul searching. Our energy goes inward, as we dream about the things we’d love to create, then as the energy increases with more sunlight, we can bring those things to the world. The beauty of cycles and seasons.
We are currently in a very powerful window of time astrologically. We know we’re made of stardust which even scientists agree with, so it’s good to be aware of what’s happening skyward.
We’ve just had a pink, full moon eclipse, and we’re about to head into a Cardinal Cross (23rd April), with more eclipses a coming. We’ve got four eclipses this year, and four next year. This is a rare occurrence; it’s actually 100 years since we’ve had four in a year, and after next year, it will be 100 more years! Eclipses are also a restart time…. they support the intention to detox your life, looking at what you can let go of and how you can step up and serve your higher self and the highest good of the planet.
The key to this time is… AWARENESS…. become conscious of everything, slow life down with the aid of some juicy, deep breaths.
Astrologers everywhere are saying that April will be intense, intense, intense. So slow down, breathe, be good to you, and do what makes you feel amazing …. and grounded. Pamper yourself, spend time in nature, most of all be gentle with yourself – especially if you’re feeling fragile, vulnerable, or in any way below par.
Something which I ADORE is watching shooting stars, and of course being silly AND real while wishing on every single one I see.
If you’re in the Northern Hemisphere, we are in a window of time – between 16 – 25 April, (peaking 22/23rd) to see the Lyrids Meteor Shower, which is is an annual occurrence and is considered to be the oldest meteor shower. Another meteor shower usually appears in August, you’ll have to check details of that yourself. Watch out just after nightfall and before dawn for the best viewing opportunities. I always find, just lying down, and holding a relaxed gaze and peripheral vision works best.
Happy Wishing upon many stars!
Death Rebirth Celebration Process
I’d like to share a very powerful shamanic process which I’ve been doing for years, to assist my transition into the new.
This is one of my favourite things to do at Easter… If you haven’t worked with me and been trained in using your intuition, then you can simply do as follows:
1. What is it true for me to let go of?
2. What is it true for me to create?
3. What is the bridge….the next step… or the action to take to create that?
4. And why not… Celebrate – step into the feeling of having created what you love, and feel, live, and BE that vibration.
Simply breathe deeply, and allow the answers to come from a deeper place than the mind.
If you ARE trained in your intuition, use the “Golden Circle” process to gift you with a symbol for each question, and then interpret it in favour of the question. What’s interesting is that, what we logically ‘think’ is true to let go of, or create are never the same as the answers from the intuition.
I love to do question one on Good Friday, and then hang with the tension until Sunday, for questions 2 & 3; it’s beautiful to just sit with it and see what emerges.
I wish you a very blissful, restful, fun Easter.

Thank you so much!
This is a little ‘ps.’ to my recent blog “4 Steps Back To The Light….”
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…..
“Name me a Shaman who has had an easy life.”
As a little treat, addendum and thank you to MysticMama.com I’d like to share this beautiful piece which sums up my journey, my recent experience of despair, and our beautiful lives.
Butterfly, Symbol Of Our Spiritual
“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
Greetings from paradise! My American visa time ran out, luckily synchronized with a fascination with island fever, which I duly caught. I bid farewell to Hawaii, and as I climbed the steps of the plane a phoenix appeared (literally) on every step to bid me farewell. I have no idea what the words ‘Phoenix’ on the steps of the plane were all about, but it was POWERFUL and much needed symbolism for me as I left the island of the fire Goddess Pele… walking up to another rebirth.
Next step Costa Rica – the only place on the planet, that my intuition gave me the thumbs up for my next adventure (thank you sis star M for tuning in with me sooo beautifully & accurately)! I allow my intuition to guide me every step of the way in my life, but when it comes to a big decision like this, when I have nooo idea what country is calling me next on this adventure, I tune in with my coach or a friend who has done the same intuitive training as me. Again, it was brilliant guidance…

My ego has been having a field day because it wanted to know the whys, hows and whereabouts of my plans (of which there were none). Since I arrived in Costa Rica my intuition has been laying trails of ‘synchromagic’ which is resulting in a really beautiful time.
I was intuitively guided to Guatemala last year, followed by LA and then Hawaii and I had a spectacular time in all those places.
I’ve been learning lots about magical Cacao. I’ve been visiting local farms and museums, learning about the production of Cacao and its importance on many levels going back several generations. I’ve made new friends, met up with old friends (who I didn’t even know were in Costa Rica) and I even have a vague idea of my future plans.
My mind (ego) still tries to find things to get its teeth into and worry about and at times I still find myself thinking that maybe my new location isn’t conducive to a smooth-running, successful business… of course, that’s codswollop, as my current reality shows me. 🙂 Always check into your current reality, it is perfect feedback of your focus! Luckily for me, I keep attracting new wonderful clients, and business partners.

You Gotta Love Your Shadow
I’ve also come to a point where I’m integrating a few months of intense growth (thanks to my wonderful sis star pointing this out); if not a lifetime’s worth (lol)! I feel like SUCH a changed lady.
In my most recent blog I shared how repeated patterns had been coming up and I’d been experiencing really deep pain. This pain has come up in all my close relationships with men I’ve had deep heart connections with. With the use of Cacao I was able to shine the light on my shadow, become aware of my patterns and lack of self love which allowed me to let in sooo much more light and love as I release the shadow, darkness, density or whatever you’d like to call it. It’s also allowed me to love myself even more.
The shadow is not something to be afraid of, it’s simply the part of us we’re unaware of, what we haven’t seen, what we haven’t shone the light on. Until we DO shine the light on it it will cause us pain & grief in our lives.
Worrying is a waste of our imagination, if you’d like to create a new world of love, YOUR new life of bliss, IMAGINE it!
I feel so grateful as I bask in the afterglow of my most recent spiral of learning.
Not only did I learn LOADS which I’m sharing with others, but I don’t feel like I’ve EVER been so much in love with myself… This is attracting some very juicy life experiences. I keep saying this, but when we clear our internal world, our external world shifts to meet that. It’s NEVER about the other person or external circumstances. Gandhi knew the importance of this, he said; “We must be the change we wish to see in the world”.
What I’ve found recently from this experience and working with clients is that, underneath it all it’s our inner child that needs love and attention. We can do this by imagining him/her, letting an age come automatically, embracing the little one and checking in and chatting with them. I do feel that our ego is simply our little inner child who needs love and attention.
Our negative beliefs can create a reality we don’t love. When I work with clients this is something we focus on. It’s really important to be aware of our beliefs as they can create a reality which doesn’t serve us. When I bring clients to a realization about their beliefs, I feel like a midwife taking them through the birth canal to rebirth. Even though it only takes a few moments, it can be an intense process, but powerful when we see how a belief like ‘I’m not worthy of love’ can create that. It’s not encouraged to look at this stuff, especially in some ‘new agey’ circles. We’re told that we’ve got to stay on a high vibration and not think negatively. I strongly disagree with this because ‘attention goes where energy flows’, so even if we’re desperately trying to ignore our negative thoughts and our ‘stuff’, where’s the energy? It’s still subconsciously focused on what we’re avoiding! So, by facing up to it, by SEEING, with awareness what’s going on, we free up that energy. Then we can focus on what we’d love to create and create that! Otherwise, with the focus on the belief that shows up!
As we’re creating the new world, we are in a portal where we have the opportunity to clear our ‘stuff’. In fact it’s imperative we do so as we’re moving into a time of powerful manifestation; a new world of light and love. We need to clear our beliefs and patterns so that we CAN manifest what we love.
This is what I LOVE about my current adventure, no sooner do I have a (light) thought about something I wish for and it manifests! It’s actually comedy, I do feel like I’m living a life totally created by me and that thank goodness all the work I’ve done on myself is paying off. I decided to treat my life like an adventure a few years ago and see if this s**t works… (the ‘Soul Discovery’ modalities I teach). I’m glad to say it does, and very beautifully too!
I love you!
Happy Soul Discovering!
