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
- 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…
- 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.
- 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.
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.
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?
- 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.
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.
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.
- 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 🙂

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 breakthrough session – click here to do so. Choose a suitable slot, and I look forward to chatting and breaking YOU through to your higher dimension where your dreams have already manifested. Aloha!

One of my favourite ways to connect to my higher self, super conscious, wise one is through signs and symbols that come to me. I often see numbers and they each have a specific meaning… here is what 999 means to me.
It is your time, you are a Lightworker – get to work. No more procrastination, you have seen the signs, now go DO IT! You WILL be a success! My ‘definition’ of a lightworker is someone who is keen to make this world a better place! I actually prefer the word ‘lightplayer’.
Completion – This is the end of a big phase in your personal or global life. Also, it is a message to lightworkers involved in Earth healing and means, “Get to work because Mother Earth needs you right now.”
Holistic healing, wholeness, body as temple of Spirit, ultimate regeneration, resurrection, immortality, illumination, Divine communion, cosmic love, pure awareness, ego annihilation, Agape Love, Enlightenment.
999 (or similar 9999) This is a “Master Number”. When you see this number often there is a profound lesson or situation occurring that is bringing very important lessons for your soul’s accelerated growth. It can also be a sign from the heavens that you have completed a period of growth, you have “Mastered” so to speak. It is common during this time to end jobs, relationships and friendships that no longer serve your higher expression. However, the closing of one door always opens a new one and new experiences will flow in that resonate with who you are now or who you are becoming.
Thank you to inspiration from Doreen Virtue, Drunvalo Melchizediech, Joanna Sacred of Scribes.
Happy 999 and other sightings!

This is a sacred day – the beginning of spring and when day and night; the light and dark are in equal balance. Our ancestors were very connected with the mystical and powerful properties of the Equinox and Solstice (which occurs December 21). Our ancestors honoured these times with ceremony and celebration. It’s a time of new beginnings – and endings! They are the ‘still times’, before the new season, the mid point of the year. The ‘in between’, the void, the unknown… the place where magic, mystery and miracles dwell. You can tap into this power for your own life with the awareness of this potent gap in space and time.
“As above, so below.”
To honour this time of rejuvenation, refreshment and rebirth; here are some tips to connect you with your true nature and purpose…
8. Create an altar
It’s a great time to create an altar, get some flowers, incense, candles, sage and objects with special meaning and place them with intention. It’s a great focus for meditation and a sacred place to go to when you need some time out. If you already have an altar, you could freshen it up by adding fresh flowers, a crystal or something special.
Do so with intention… what do they represent? Intentions? Gratitude? An honoring of your ancestors, or your love life, or your career or another area of your life? Play with it. Visualize your life just as you would love it! Smile! Imaginatively step into the end result of what you would truly love!
Take some time to really quiet the mind. The easiest way to do this is to stop and take some slow, deep, conscious breaths. This quiets the mind and connects you with your spirit. A quiet mind can receive guidance, inspiration and ‘aha’ moments.
Create a sacred space and time to write down what you wish to manifest or create in the next 6 months, 1 year, 5 years, 10 years.
What legacy would you like to leave the planet with?
When you look back at your life, what are the 5 things you have done, that you are most proud of?”
Treat your journal as your new best friend. You know the phrase ‘better out than in’?
Well, if your head is full of worries, jot them down in your journal. It will clear your mind, and allow inspiration and guidance to come through.
5. Clear your space
Space clearing, cleaning, clearing out clutter is a great way to say to the Universe “I am ready! I’ve created new, clear, sacred space to allow what I love into my life.”
Psychologically you’re clearing house, and ensuring that you set up the conditions for more of what you love. For more info on the power of this, just check out any feng shui websites or books. If there is a particular area of your life you would like more luck with, it will represent a corner of your home, so check it out, and clear that space. If you want to read more about this, I highly recommend this book – “The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing” by Marie Kondo. Her main message is to keep only things that bring you joy! I like that.
4. Plant seeds!
There’s always something you can plant – at any time of the year. Even if you don’t have seeds, tend to your garden, or sent an intention. What would you like to grow?
Apart from honoring mother earth, and your creative abilities, planting seeds or ideas is a wonderful way to ground yourself. When you are grounded, you can connect to divine inspiration and bring more of heaven to earth in your life. Living in heaven on earth is the new paradigm… it is just about changing your perception and seeing the magic already in your life! Then more, and more and more…
Also, simply putting your hands in clay, releases happy hormones (who knew)?!
3. Greet the sunrise
Sunrise is a very sacred time of the day, especially at Equinox!
I ADORE Rumi; this is one of my favourite quotations written by him;
“The breezes at dawn have secrets to tell you
Don’t go back to sleep!
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep!
People are going back and forth
across the doorsill where the two worlds touch,
The door is round and open
Don’t go back to sleep!”
I can honestly say, that in all the years that I got out of bed when I woke before sunrise, I’ve had the BEST day ever. It really sets you up for the day.
Write a list of things you are grateful for.
Every morning when you wake up, before anything… recite the things you are grateful for.
No matter how you are feeling it WILL make you feel better. One of my favourite mentors used to say ‘Mood Is Everything’. It is SO true… when you feel good, you magnetize more magic into your life.
Write a list of awesome things about you – and read them out to friend. Get them to validate you, and add to your list. Then swap. If you feel like your confidence and self worth needs a boost, that’s a great thing to do!
1. Hold A Ceremony
When nighttime and daytime are of equal duration, it reflects our male and female energies in balance… as light and dark are balanced in the world, so it is a great time to focus on balance in your life.
Whatever your ceremony involves, if you bring the quality of ‘sacredness’ to it, it will be perfect. I also love to include FUN in my ceremonies. After all, that’s why we are on planet earth!
Remember to honor your ancestors, spirit guides, power animals, angels, Ascended Masters, or whoever you seek guidance from.
Even better, if you have some sacred ceremonial grade chocolate you can have a ceremony with others, or on your own (more on how Chocolate is the vehicle for therapy, guidance, fun, spiritual enlightenment and so much more click here). Take a dose and tune into your intention. What would you like guidance on, what would you like to release (ideal for Southern Hemisphere/Autumn people), what would you like to create (ideal for Northern Hemisphere/Spring people). Drink, and be guided.
If you would like to book a Shamanic ‘Feel Your New Life, Living Your Highest Potential & Joy’ session, simply fill out the ‘Contact Me’ form and book a session – the first 3 people today will be considered for this powerful Shamanic experience.
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.
Day out of time…. July 25, 2015
The ‘in between’ in the Mayan calendar.
A day of being… dreaming… gentleness…
The void, the unknown where potential lies… the space where magic, mystery and wonder dwell.
Take time to silence your mind…. breathe… become conscious.
I first became conscious of the ‘day out of time‘ in 2012 when I had a palpable sense that something very strange and magical was in the air. All day long there was a potent-full, intense but gentle, full stop and a skip kinda energy in the air. I asked around and discovered it was the ‘day out of time’!! I was blown away – I don’t usually feel that particular dates are important as time is simply made up anyway. In hindsight though, I wonder if I felt its intensity because unbeknownst to me, a few months later I would follow my intuition and embark on a life-changing journey to the Mayan lands to meet a Chocolate Shaman (click here for more on that)!
Take time today to honour your journey and dream your future in …. that can all be done with just a few breaths.
I’m with the clan this weekend, by the sea, hoping the sunshine comes out tomorrow after an entire day of full on rain! Ready for sunnnny times and a private Cacao Ceremony to give gratitude and connect more and more to my bliss as I dream even some dreams I may not have even considered yet 😉
More about the “Day Out of Time” – Annually July 25th (from http://www.souledout.org/wecyclewisdom/node/493)
This is the last day of the galactic year in the Mayan and Galactic calendar.
(13 moons of 28 days = 364 days ~ the extra day, the 365th day, is July 25, the “Day Out Of Time”)
This is a special day for ritual, meditation and prayer.
In 2014 the Galactic New Year (July 26) is the second year in the 7-year cycle from 2013-2020 of Opening the Seven Light Gates.
This Day out of Time we open the Second Light Gate!
Yellow Galactic Star (7/25/14)
Spiritual quality of this Day Out of Time “Yellow Star’s star-seeded gift is the revelation of the harmony that unites all things.”
Red Solar Moon Year July 26, 2014 – July 25, 2015
“You are on the quest of self-remembrance, of Godseed … As you open to self-remembrance, you become a beacon and receiver for cosmic consciousness.”
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,
I just saw a post on facebook saying that the world is going to end, the polar ice caps are melting etc. etc. Lots of ranting, fear-mongering and debate.
Now, I am definitely not going to DENY this and that there is big change afoot and that a lot of people treat this planet disgracefully. However, I know in my heart that when we focus on this, when we give our energy to it, this is what we create.
I feel angry – which is interesting, because I think a lot of these ranters are angry and fearful… they totally push my buttons and I must make a stand.
This was a heart and love motivated post, because I had a big energetic push, followed by a strange dizziness, almost like I was being overcome by spirit telling me I had to speak up… This is is funny because the lovely man who posted the notice wrote a book about the end times and how we pretty much eventually ruin the earth. It’s a wonderful book… however, it looks at ONE possible future… if there’s one thing I’ve learned from my Shamanic studies and life experiences, it’s that there are MANY possible futures, and what manifests is what we focus on. It’s where most of our energy goes… that’s the path and end result we create.
I am passionate that I balance this perspective, because by default, ever since I was a child I used positivity to survive. For many years during my spiritual awakening, time doing therapy, and various deeply transformational studies and courses, I realised how this was a shadow of mine… so I’ve brought it to the light, I’m aware of it, and interestingly enough, I actually became a little embarrassed of my positivity for a while. I was actually ashamed that I was positive. Yes, there was truth in the fact that often I wasn’t being ‘real’ about current reality, and I hoped that my positive thinking would create the manifesations/end results I wanted…. often they didn’t, for various reasons I won’t go into on this blog, but that brings me to the present moment… NOW, I’m a Positive Real Feeler…. I simply KNOW what resonates, and the future of the earth being destroyed by us does NOT resonate – for me, personally.
I received this information from a version of my future self. The news is as follows:
“My name is Tobin, and I am a 45 year old man. I have three kids and a beautiful wise woman wife… She is my voice, my inspiration, my reason for being. We are twin souls and it is like a dream come true to be alive, together, creating children in this life.
We are in the year AD 60,000 and earth is a magnificent place to be…..
There is fruit which you do not know… not from genetically modifying, but actually by marvelling at the fruit and veg we do love and know, and from that marvelling and adoration, new species came into being.
A heart swell is what creates… when we eat something we love, we speak to the cells in the food, it gives us more nutrients and what we naturally need to be high vibrational, energetic, joyful beings, but also it communicates with future energy of the foods which are coming into being so that earth is constantly looking after us, and creating more and more of what we love.
The dinosaurs were not particularly loved, so it’s not a problem that they died out.
I know that in your day, you are fearing melting of ice caps and so on and so forth. There are photos of beautiful white polar bears stranded, and it evokes fear in the people… especially the powerful manifesters, those with gentle, pure, loving hearts. It is actually the messages, and fears of those people which can do the most damage to your planet. When these sensitive beings are hiding away, or doing whatever they do when they are feeling pain, they transmit that fear to everyone, especially the animals who may be at risk.
You are all one… the animals that are in danger – FEEL that pain, and that fear is a damaging manifestation focus for them.
We know you are often confused and upset, but believe me, it is all working out perfectly.
You have a sacred plant, which is becoming stronger and stronger – Cacao. There is a love energy in this plant, imbued with knowledge, light, wisdom… which really are all the same thing. This plant brings balance to earth beings and actually also heightens their love experiences, and their connection with their higher selves, other dimensional beings and interplanetary beings also.
We are in agreement that your planet is changing, but, what is leaving your planet needs to go elsewhere. What is missing now is what you WOULD love to create. It is essential that more of the focus is made on that.
It might take sometime for everyone to be focussed on the same outcome… but right now, YOU – you who are reading this, what kind of a planet would you like to create?
As you tap into your heart wisdom, you will get more and more clarity about your own life, your legacy, your children’s lives… In the end, everyone wants the same. LOVE. To be in a world of love. The more you start to focus on that… the more that feeling will have a greater percentage focussing on it. I mentioned Cacao… there is a Spirit present in Cacao, and as the indigenous myth says ‘whenever the balance between humans & nature becomes threatened, cacao comes from the rainforest to open people’s hearts & return the planet to a state of harmony’. Cacao is not necessary, but she is a great help in guiding you from your head to your heart, and allowing you to experience the state of Oneness, Flow and Love.
There are many, conspiracy theorists, environmentalists and those who are concerned for the well-being of the earth. There are others who fight for all sorts of ‘worthy’ causes… it is crucial that they shift their focus on to what they DO love, otherwise they are actually fighting a losing battle, and they are actually giving power to the people they are fighting.…
It’s like the power of the consciousness of a human being… you might think you want a life parter, and a wonderful relationship, but if your main belief is that you are unworthy or unlovable… you will not get or maintain this relationship. It is the same with our focus in terms of saving the planet or creating peace… if your predominant belief is that it is impossible to have a world of love and peace, or of having a healthy planet is not likely… so it is.
We come to you in love.
We come to you from a place of infinite bliss…. Imagine your most wonderful days, times, moments…. When you felt like you were full of love, full of joy, full of the essence of bliss… that is our being, that is our way. It IS possible… when you choose those emotions, when you feel them NOW, doing whatever you are doing….. That is the future you are creating for yourself.”
Aho my loves
I hope you enjoyed this post. Please share the love.
I have learned that the power to create our future, our new world is in the highs, of the vibrations we feel… when we look for evidence of an incredible, love-filled world, that is what we see.
Forgiveness is key too, if someone goes against you, your beliefs, if they’re different to you, if they do or say something negative, you must let it go… release and let go.
I have also learned that being aware of everything that goes on within us is a chance to create… it’s a sign from above and it is a part of our life purpose, and the jigsaw that goes to make up the incredible beauty of our lives.
We all have a part to play in this game of life, and it IS a game, that is what Tobin said… when you read between the lines anyway….we are all in this together and we don’t have to believe another’s point of view, we simply have to be curious.
I hasten to add that it is advantageous to be curious about the experiences, things, life stories which will serve you to live and experience. If you are curious about things you do NOT want to experience then that is what you may manifest.

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 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.
This is the Chinese year of the horse; the horse represents freedom, sovereignty and power. It is OUR year!
I LOVE you, I adore this path we are walking, creating the life and the world we DO love as we walk.
