1010 Number Sequences Signs Symbols….
Symbols of different kinds are a way for the ‘unusual’ mystical, magical realms to connect with us.
I have seen 1010 LOTS today. I see repetitive numbers a lot, in fact I’m writing a series of blogs on the symbolism behind a wide range of numbers. Seeing repetitive numbers is one of my favourite ways to remember to pause. Breathe. Step out of my busy mind, my chattering thoughts and remember that I’m living in a magical world.
Other symbols with meaning are feathers, birds, animals, hearing the lyrics of a song that have special meanings. When we’re attuned to these things, our consciousness feeds us these little tidbits of magic to keep us happy on our path, and to give us guidance. I often see releavant numbers if I’m worried about somethign, or there’s a particular reminder I need.
What does 1010 mean?
It reminds us of the importance of LOVE… we’re made of love, it’s all about love (more below). Above all else, love YOU! The most important person on the planet… to you.
It is a BIG reminder that in essence, you are love, and you are here to experience love.
Loving what arises, loving ourselves, taking the path from the head, to the heart and living from there… following your heart (but taking the head along too).
Even if you’re having challenges in your business, just LOVE it. I think that one of the toughest paths to enlightenment is the path of the entrepreneur! You are really faced with your beliefs, and (perceived) limitations on a daily basis… and you MUST move on through them. That’s why I love these little signs from the Universe (for want of a better word) showing us whether we’re on the right path, and inspiring us with the messages.
As always thanks to Doreen Virtue, Crystalinks.com and Drunvalo Melchizidech for their inspirations on the meanings of numbers.
10:10 – Moving into a new beginning 1 (one) – and moving into the pattern of the Great Void 0 (or zero).
10:10 is the Alpha-Omega number. The number of beginnings and endings, it a new beginning, can coming full circle (1, then 0, repeated). It is full of promise, and it is the beginning of the opening of the “Compassionate Heart.”
I’d love to hear from you – what does this number represent for you?
Have you seen it a lot?
What are your favourite recurring numbers, and why?

222 2222 New Beginnings…
What does it mean when you see the number 2 repeated?
Messages come to us in many ways, especially repeated numbers. You might see the numbers on a clock, car registration numbers, telephone numbers, receipts, change or the total on your receipt.
So what specifically does 222 mean?
Well, it’s a very good sign.
The new moon is closely linked with the number 2, when you see repetitive 2 it is a sign of NEW BEGINNINGS…
It’s saying – keep going, don’t to give up.
The seed you planted is just below the soil, it’s ready to sprout and appear above the soil. Just because you can’t see anything, it doesn’t mean it’s not growing and developing.
222 or other groups of ‘2’ are reminding you to stay positive…
Don’t lose hope just before your seed shoots through the soil, to the light of day and full manifestation.
Celebrate your humanness, your dreams are coming true, keep going and…..
It is a reminder to take it easy! You ARE on the way to manifesting your dreams.. You just need to ‘do the work’ every single day, every single nano second – and know that even on the most miserable days, your manifestations ARE coming through…. like seeds, sprouting, slowing reaching the light of day… If you give up just before the seed bursts through the soil you miss the manifestation.
In terms of creating and manifesting our dreams, we can describe it in the following steps:
A Dream, New Vision or Realisation
You have a dream… you meet a teacher or a mentor who shows you another way – your “Soul’s Path”.
You have a glimpse of another possibility, another life choice. It could be a new business, relationship, health choice and so on.
You get super excited as it seems SO real, believable and possible.
This is your “Call To Adventure” as Joseph Campbell describes it in his book “The Hero’s Journey“. You meet a teacher or a guide, and you commit to your dream or vision. This is the path of the heart.
By accepting the call, and remaining excited, following the breadcrumb trail of joy – you eventually manifest your dreams. It helps to be trained in tapping into your intuition in an accurate, tangible way. Then you totally know if you are being motivated by fear… or love (the heart/imagination/intuition).
Doubt, Challenge & Testing
In the second stage of the journey, doubt, challenges and tests arise… You’ve got clarity on your dream, and the vision you would like to manifest, but then the mind takes over….. FEAR!
The job of the mind (or ego) is to protect you. Its sole job is your survival…. literally! This was necessary back in the days of cave dwelling, but nowadays the mind can go into overdrive and actually take you AWAY from your heart’s path, and your dreams (it thinks it’s protecting you).
The ego sees you are about to do something new… and it fears for your safety and survival (if you keep doing what you’ve been doing, it’s quite happy – even if is not good for you… because you have not died… literally, its job is to keep you alive – it’s that simple – and crazy).
When you think about following your heart it freaks out!
In this stage, the ego has been alerted to the fact that you might be taking the path of the heart and it sees that as scary… it’s got its ‘alert!’ hat on 🙂
Whatever area you are thinking about changing, different scenarios might come up…
If you consider leaving the ‘known’, worries arise – you’ve trained long and hard at your job – to be a lawyer, a teacher, a television producer (my past career) or whatever the job you are considering leaving that simply isn’t bringing you joy – so fear comes up and you think you can’t give it up. You doubt whether your new venture will be a success…
You think ‘Maybe doing fabulous, enjoyable work is for others, the dreamers, not me….’
You don’t think you can leave your marriage or relationship because of that bit of paper and those promises you made a looooong time ago. You worry about what others will think and say. You think maybe you should compromise.
Any time ‘222’ pops up, you’re being told to look for the magic, the magic is within you, and this is a sign that you are on the right path… get excited and stay with the excitement.
You don’t think you can manifest your dream home, or move and live somewhere else and all sorts of worries come up. The dreaded word ‘HOW’ bugs you as you ‘try’ to work out the entire journey from where you are to your manifested dream.
I actually suggest you refrain from using the word ‘how’ – this word can catapult you firmly back into the left, logical brain. Nothing wrong with the left brain, but it is limited to what you have learned and experienced, whereas the right brain is unlimited…
The right brain is the sphere of the imagination, intuition, synchronicity, magic, and love.
You need both sides of your brain to manifest successfully. :)…
Whatever your story, whatever your dream there will be something that needs to be released, and something that you need to commit to….
If you are to live a fantastic life, rather than a life of compromise, fear, loneliness… whatever your favourite ego flavour is …. Whatever your ‘predominant negative belief’ might be… or to put it another way, the usual excuse you give yourself for NOT manifesting your dreams. The thing that you ‘blame’, or that stops you over and over again from creating awesome times.
“The imagination is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”
“Imagination is more powerful than knowledge.”
This is the stage where we doubt ourselves…
Many people give up here … this is why so many equate dreams, desires, visions with pain and suffering.
Many give up for many years, or forever. We’re not taught to ‘break out of the system’ so to speak…
This is the stage of testing… are you committed to your dream … or not?
Anything that comes up and doubts your stage one (your vision), is stage two…
This stage is also a sort of ‘safety light switch’. You are being asked –
Are you sure you want to leave your job?
Are you sure you want to live your purpose, create prosperity and make a difference in the world?
Are you sure you want to leave your relationship?
Do you feel you DESERVE awesome love, fun and commitment?
Are you sure you want to change your vibration and your life…
Are you sure you are committed to creating an awesome life?
And so on…
If you say YES you reach…..
Manifestation & Realisation That You Are A DMB (Divine Magnificent Being)
You manifest your dream!
It is time for CELEBRATION & COMPLETION!
Remember you’re a God, Goddess, a Divine, Magnificent Being.
You are Spirit having a human experience…
If you have a desire you CAN manifest it…. it is law! We are never given a dream, or a desire that we cannot manifest.
You start to FEEL the vibration of having manifested your dream. You let go… and before you know, you’ve either manifested it, or you realise you’ve manifested something even better.
In this stage, you begin to manifest more and more and more of what you love. Good place to keep the momentum… it’s easier to stay in a high vibration, that get back up if you fall out.
Often, when you are focussed on the ‘big’ dream, you look around and realise you have manifested something you wished for a very long time ago.
When you take your mind (and fear) off it, you allow it to come into your life.
A type of surrender… of the most powerful kind. That’s what ‘being in your power’ means – it is having a dream, and taking action to manifest it.
“Doing the work!’
When you rise to the vibration – the feeling of having what you love… it comes rushing into your life….
222 You need to keep your vibe high though!
To find out how to do this, feel free to ask me…. or remind me to write another blog on this subject.
So the numbers 2, or repeated 2’s are saying don’t give up!
It’s a message from your guides, whoever/wherever you seek your guidance from.
It’s spirit – your higher self, the angels, your ancestors – when they get your attention with repetitive numbers, it’s their way of communicating with you.
You CAN do it!
You are WELL CAPABLE.
You are GOOD ENOUGH, YOU ARE LOVABLE and YOU ARE WORTHY!
You only want what you want, because in the having of it, you think you will feel better.. so feel good anyway!
So keep going, keep dreaming, spend more time in the dreams, imagining, playing than you do in your ‘stuff’ (negative beliefs, thoughts, feelings) and it WILL happen…. it is law!

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!

“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.

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.
Energy goes where attention flows, energy flows where attention goes.
Please let me know your viewpoints, and please share! Thank you – SO much love.
The 13 Spiritual Benefits of Chocolate – Cacao Ceremony Time! (haga clic aquí para español).
Do you know that chocolate is actually medicine?
How cool is that?
It is one of the most powerful, gentle facilitators, teachers and guides on the planet – and it is delicious too!
The Ancient Mayans and Aztecs used Chocolate for Spiritual and Ceremonial purposes. In its purest form (unlike much of the chocolate available in the mainstream), it is a powerful assistant for ‘inner work’, creative guidance and so much more.
Read on to discover how this delicious superfood can help you!
The 13 Spiritual Benefits of Chocolate – Cacao Ceremony Time – And Connecting with ‘The Spirit of Cacao’…
13. HEART OPENER
Chocolate opens the heart and allows for a deeper, authentic love based connection with yourself, others, the world and all of life.
12. SHAMANIC JOURNEYING
It promotes powerful journeying and connection with your spiritual wisdom.
11. THERAPY – SOVEREIGN (RATHER THAN CODEPENDENT)
Helps to bring awareness to anything that has been preventing you from creating the life you love.
It aids in the recognition, and release of repetitive patterns
You will become aware of any beliefs and blocks which could prevent you from creating the life you love.
10. CONNECTION WITH HIGHER SELF
Stronger connection with the higher self (intuition, soul, God, Goddess etc.).
This leads to an enhanced connection with your own power and truth; your divinity.
Chocolate is a powerful facilitator allowing you to delve into your pain.
“You gotta feel it to heal it.”
Once you FEEL your pain (sadness, anger, grief etc. etc.), you won’t keep manifesting situations to feel these feelings.
You will live a freer, happier life, without constantly being triggered.
When you release these emotions, it allows more light, love and magic into your life.
This is ‘Heaven on Earth’.
9. EFFECTIVE MEDITATION
Powerful, otherworldly and deep meditation, enabling you to connect with your spiritual nature, accessing the wisdom within.
Meditation is much easier and more beneficial; silencing the mind becomes easy – hence the space for healing occurs.
‘The healing occurs in the stillness.’
It calms the left brain chatter, and allows us to delve more into that ‘no mind’ space of bliss.
8. ‘GET’ ANY LEARNINGS IN YOUR ENTIRE BEING… NOT JUST YOUR HEAD
Profound embodiment of new learnings. This allows you to feel in your body what you know in your head. The teachings you might already be aware of are ‘understood‘, you suddenly ‘get‘ them on a deeper level.
For instance, the teaching that we are all love, and love is all there is.
You might logically know this, and want to believe it and live it, but you wonder HOW to embody it?
Is it true?
Chocolate aids the pathway to living and FEELING this love, this bliss, the state of being which IS FLOW, ONENESS and LOVE…..
Indigenous Costa Rican Shaman
7. A JOURNEY TO ONENESS LOVE ENLIGHTENMENT
Feelings of oneness, enlightenment and ecstasy.
This results in more love in your life, leading to more effective manifestation and a more powerful, familiar connection with your magnificence and spiritual capacities.
When you access this state; bliss, love, the vortex, the ‘zone’, flow, whatever you want to call it, you can manifest what you love.
You also enter into the state where what you love, comes to you!
Your lover, clients, abundance, vibrant health – you name it.
6. MALE FEMALE ENERGY BALANCE WITHIN
More enhanced, balanced, connected male & female energy.
Male and female energies are within everyone.
When these energies are in balance, you live a harmonious life magnetising all you love TO you.
This integration also leads to enhanced effectiveness as the divine creator and super manifesting machine that you are, in essence.
The balance of male and female energies allows you to receive inspiration (feminine energy) AND act on it (masculine energy).
Chocolate is the ONLY food which
Connects your left brain & your right brain!!!
5. ENHANCED CREATIVITY
Access to the ‘one mind’ or unity consciousness allowing the connection with creative ideas.
You enter a zone where you are receiving ‘aha’ moments, inspiration, ideas. With the enhanced male/female balance, these are made manifest….
4. IMPROVED YOGA, CHI KUNG AND SIMILAR PRACTICES
More effective, deeper, profound, easier yoga and chi kung practice.
Your practice improves on every level; physical, mental, spiritual, emotional.
This is probably the case with other practices too (aikido, kick boxing etc.) but I have yet to try other – so let me know!
3. CONNECTION TO HIGHER DIMENSIONS
A deeper, stronger connection with ‘the light’, the new, higher dimensions, raising your vibration.
Posing with a Chocolate Tree and friend in Costa Rica
2. CAREER GUIDANCE – CROSSROADS CLARITY
More clarity, ideas and connection with your life purpose.
Clarity on your talents, skills and how you are here to serve – you easily connect with your creative abilities; writing, painting, dancing, music or whatever floats your boat really.
Flow is the one thing that those who are successful in business experience. Whether ‘spiritual’ or not. From this state creation, and abundance…. FLOWS!
1. FUN – The Reason We Are Here!
Chocolate is a gentle, powerful feminine force. It is the force for the new world. In fact ‘power’ is a better word than ‘force’.
By surrendering to the essence and energy of Chocolate, you can step into the higher dimensions. It facilitates a deep Shamanic experience of ‘being in the world but not of it’ or ‘having a foot in both worlds’.
You become the Ascended Master on earth… bringing Heaven TO Earth. It shows you how you can shift your perception so life can be fun.
That is what we are here for, to have fun!
This was the learning I got when I lived in Hawaii and I swam with the wild dolphins almost every day. They kept telling me (telepathically), FUN FUN FUN. However, it took me about 5 years to master the teaching… in fact I’m still getting my head around it.
We’re here to have fun, if it’s not fun, don’t do it, or MAKE IT FUN!
Is Chocolate A Drug?
Well, if you think that tobacco, coffee and alcohol are drugs, then I guess so.
Chocolate wasn’t popular as a psychoactive in the 60’s because it’s not actually psychedelic (although many experience visions and powerful journeys in my ceremonies).
It is is gaining a lot of popularity now, because of all the shifts on the planet and people recognise its power.
We have come to a tipping point. As chocolate connects you with your heart, it also connects you with something bigger…. God, the Universe, Spirit, your higher self… whatever you want to call it.
It’s the magical space you enter when you appreciate a phenomenal sunset… before the mind chips in and goes;
‘Oooheee – look, she’s having one of ‘those’ experiences!’ Lol..
Do you know what I mean?
Anyway, I digress, I discovered this magic a few years ago on a trip round the world and it totally changed my life. Below, I share my journey and 13 Spiritual benefits of using chocolate for ceremonial and spiritual purposes.
Most of the chocolate available in the marketplace is full of sugar and additives. The beans are often hybridised, or low quality, so it doesn’t have a powerful effect. The chocolate that I work with facilitates a deeper journey, and intense feelings of BLISS.
Messages From The Dolphins (the most intelligent of mammals).
The messages that the dolphins deliver, and the basis of Hawaiian Shamanism… It’s all about FUN, LOVE, BREATHING (consciously) and CONNECTION 🙂 I spent many months swimming with wild dolphins in Hawaii, they communicated with me daily, and eventually we had a very sovereign relationship (once I stopped depending on them for healing lol). They continually reminded me:
BREATHE … HAVE FUN … LOVE … CONNECT … FLOW!
The importance of these messages has been communicated to me recently in my own work and through witnessing what others gain in ceremonies and one to one sessions. It facilitates the clearing of deep psychological, emotional, and spiritual blocks. It allows one to get to the root of any emotion or even any physical ailment, to discover why they have it and in turn feeling the emotion related to it; subsequently healing the original dis-ease and releasing it.
The number thirteen is a powerful number; the number of the Goddess. During the patriarchy, we were led to believe that 13 is unlucky as it is the number attributed to the power – the gentle power of the feminine.
When the patriarchy came to the fore, it was ruled as ‘unlucky’ because they wanted us to fear the power of the Goddess and women in general. It represents the new world of love and peace which is being created right now.
Back Story – How I discovered the magical, spiritual, medicinal qualities of chocolate!
I arrived in Guatemala at 11.11 on 11/11/12 feeling VERY curious, and a little afraid.
It was very synchronistic that I landed at those times, the flight was delayed and as I flew in, I was greeted not only by these (very significant) numbers but also by 4/5 bolts of lightning – at eye level!
This was a sure sign that this was probably not going to be an ordinary adventure!!
The numbers have many meanings (click here to check them out).
My visit was also timed with the important dates which would occur the month after (12/12/12 and 21/12/12), the dates famed as being the end of the Mayan calendar, time as we know it, and a 26,00 year cycle. This was much celebrated and talked about worldwide, with some even thinking the world would end on 21 December 2012! What resonated for me, was that it would be the end of the world … as we know it, and the beginning of a new one. The world of LOVE…
After arriving in Guatemala and spending some time in Antigua, a really beautiful city, and World Heritage centre, intuition, and a very dear friend guided me to buy a ticket to Lake Atitlan. I did so, and travelled the very next day. I arrived in San Marcos, a haven of healing portals in the Highlands of Guatemala. I still felt the fear. I had no idea why I was there and as I acknowledged my fear, and total submersion into the unknown, it was soon transmuted after I asked my favourite question; ‘What would I love?’ I actually can’t remember my answer, but I have a few ideas. Anyway, soon after (minutes), I met a wonderful lady who told me about ‘The Chocolate Shaman’ and his ceremonies. That was day one in San Marcos, day two I attended my first ceremony!
I had no idea about the magical properties of chocolate and that the Ancient Mayans and Aztecs used it for Spiritual and Ceremonial purposes. People from all over the world gathered in circle, to drink cacao, and drop from their head to their heart. They experienced healing, while having fun and journeyed deep within to a place where all their answers lay.
The Chocolate Shaman initially connected with the Spirit of Cacao nearly 10 years ago. She told him that Cacao would be ‘The Food for the Shift’. This started his journey of discovery, and ended up with him using Chocolate in its purest form as a medicine, to open others hearts, and return people to their innate power & magnificence.
I spent some months going to Ceremonies and learning about chocolate and surrendering to the ‘stuff” that I needed to let go of. It was totally life-transforming for me, and the path that I ‘thought’ I was going to take from then on, totally changed. I chose to add Sacred Chocolate to my Shaman’s Toolbag and hold ceremonies – well actually it was all totally intuitively guided. I invited a friend to come to my first one – and I loved it. From then on, people asked me to hold them, they got the people to come, they got the venues, all I needed to do was turn up! Now THAT is flow!
The Spirit of Cacao spoke to me – gently, yet powerfully and showed me this was my true path. In fact when I did a Shamanic Journey before I went to Guatemala, I had a vision of myself running what seemed to be Ayahuasca ceremonies – and I was a little surprised. As much as I respect Aya, and I have attended ceremonies it did not resonate as my path. Of course, it wasn’t long before I realised the similarities in a Cacao Ceremony and an Ayahuasca Ceremony. You sit in circle, drink an elixir and have a powerful, (fun with Chocolate), profound experience. The difference being that chocolate will show you the door, it will not push you through. Intention is the key …
I was honoured to have been invited by The Spirit of Cacao to share her magic – her gentle, yet powerful guiding ways all over the planet. Since then, I have continued to build a strong connection with The Spirit of Cacao as the powerful teacher, facilitator and guide that she is.
“Chocolate; The Food For The Shift!”
My experiences since then confirm that Chocolate truly IS the food for the shift.
I have seen so many transformations, and people discovering their purpose, joy, confidence and walking the path their soul called them to take. In my ceremonies I use my Healing, Intuitive Coaching & Shamanic tools from a 16 year professional adventure into the unknown, raising the mists of my own beliefs and assumptions and becoming more of who I was born to be. I’ve been creating more and more of the life I love. Through that, I’ve been guiding others so that they not only create a life THEY love, but also go on to teach others to do so too. Sharing the magical secrets of alchemy and the elixirs of life worldwide!
“We must be the change we wish to see.”
The use of Chocolate has taken my work and the results in others lives to another level. It creates a beautiful cauldron of love, allowing what needs to be released to transmute – thus allowing more room for extra doses of light, love and magic.
During Chocolate Ceremonies, people connect with deep feelings of bliss, love and joy – their FLOW!
They sometimes journey through a variety of emotions which are stuck – these may have caused illness, repetitive patterns, conflict, confusion, lack of abundance, love and basic lack of joy and fulfilment in their lives. They gain deep realisations about their purpose, the meaning of life and the direction their soul is calling them to take.
There’s often wondrous ‘aha’ moments on why certain things have been a perceived ‘problem’ and how, in fact, now they can see that it’s their greatest gift. With this knowledge, the journey forward is more empowered without the old ‘story’ but with a renewed awareness of the gifts they’ve been granted, even through the story! This fresh start empowers them to step into their power in a way they’ve never before experienced (often with them using Chocolate in their work).
The planet is changing, WE are changing and there’s a need for a great number of teachers to become guides for the rest of the planet. There are a lot of pain bodies to be soothed and transmuted, and I’m working with the next wave of teachers. As Eckhart Tolle said, dealing with the pain body is one of the most important, and much needed jobs of the current years.
Chocolate The Superfood
Apart from the fact that Chocolate is a magical medicine, it also has a lot of positive health benefits. It is a superfood, it’s delicious and it’s also an aphrodisiac!
Since my discovery about the magical uses for Chocolate I journeyed to Hawaii & Canada where I held Ceremony, but I also journeyed to Costa Rica and I met tribes who still use Chocolate for these purposes. They also use it for initiations for new born babies, teenagers and pregnant women.
The Spirit of Cacao was one of the most revered of the ancient Mayan Deities. They called Cacao ‘The water that runs through the heart’. Chocolate is a Sacred, Medicinal, Psychoactive, Plant and Theobroma or cacao actually means “Food of the Gods”.

Are you beating yourself up?
Are you giving yourself a hard time about something?
For me, recently it’s because I’m sleeping a lot and I’m not jumping outta bed at 5/6 am and going for my run.
Granted, there are mornings when my first skype session is at 6/30 or 7 and by then I’ve made my (amazing) smoothie, meditated, read my choices, tuned in, and sometimes even done my yoga!
Occasionally though, and more frequently lately I’m sleeping quite late in the morning AND some days even having a nap in the afternoon.
There’s no problem there, especially as recently I’ve been getting to bed after midnight, the ‘problem’ though is that I’ve been giving myself a really, really tough time about it. I’ve been FOCUSSING on my one current perceived failure, labeling or defining myself as lazy because I’m oversleeping.
Even though I’m a life coach and I’m amazing at pointing out others blind spots, it sometimes takes me a while to see mine. I even wrote a blog not too long ago and one of the things I said to do was to allow yourself to sleep as much as you needed (see here) http://gfablovelife.wordpress.com/2013/05/09/spring-new-moon-eclipse-season/
I was very blissed to have a beautiful connection with a dear friend with the COOLest name; Cameron McCool (who was also inspired to write a blog about me after our chat (see here). http://cameronmccool.com/2013/07/going-through-a-tough-time-ewop-can-help/; he so magically guided me to my realisations that I’m not even sure HOW he did it, but whatever his inspiring guidance and words were, it worked. Thanks Cam!
The Tricks Of The EGO!
Everything in my life is wonderful, I’m fulfilling my purpose, I’m wealthy, healthy, free, I pretty much have a dream life, so what my ego has been doing is that it’s finding something to keep me disconnected from my Magnificence so it’s got still got a job to do and it can fulfill its crazy role. So it latched onto this one thing that (apparently) makes me ‘imperfect’ and ‘not good enough’.
I love my ego, and the more I love it and become conscious of its ways and embrace it into my being, the more secure it feels and the less it feels like it has to create craziness in my life!
So my ego was been defining me as imperfect, lazy, not good enough and so on and so on. But the reality is that I’m changing massively, my DNA is changing, the entire world is changing. It’s fun, it’s powerful and we’ve NEVER been in this position on planet earth ever before.
Seeing myself as powerful, sensitive, a wayshower and a visionary are much more empowering definitions than ‘I’m lazy’ or ‘I’m powerless’ or I’m not achieving the ridiculously high standards which my ego is placing on me. Lol.
You see, the more I’ve been focussing on being lazy and oversleeping, the less I’ve been enjoying the absolute luck and joy in my life.
It’s been like a vicious circle.
I wrote this blog yesterday, Saturday, and this morning at 6.30 am I was out of bed, feeling amazing, no pressure and I went for a fabulous run.
SUCH magic happens when you become conscious of WHY you’re doing or not doing something. Once I became conscious of what was going on, I didn’t have to DO anything, things just shifted on their own.
The joy of exploring the area I’m currently based in (Vancouver, Beautiful British Columbia) was beyond measure. The thing that I haven’t been able to force myself out of bed to do, the thing I’ve been giving myself a ridiculously hard time about for a few days turned out to be…..
A beautiful experience connecting with others through the magic of the smile!
A journey into the unknown
An experience of the bliss of nature; butterflies, rising sun, ancient trees, cormorants, herons, seals and of course loooaads of fab dogs.
Many trips down memory lane and a lot of tingles all over as I ran super speedily to old house tunes from back in the day.
Much fun with my new iphone (all of these photos are from it) and joy at my new playlists 🙂
An embrace at getting to know myself even more, and ADORING myself even more!
A divine, rewarding coffee and muffin by the sea afterwards.
Oh, and LOTS of white feathers at synchronistic moments when I was considering my dreams (white feathers are a sign that we’re on the right path, and that our angels are with us) 😉
So where are you giving yourself a hard time in your life?
Are you focussing on something you’re NOT doing?
How about giving yourself a break and looking at all the magic you ARE creating?
How about taking time to appreciate everything you HAVE created?
How about loving you for just the way you are… and whatever you do, if it’s exercise that you are giving yourself a hard time over, PLEASE, I beg of you, do something you ENJOY!
I love you!

[Update… December 27, 2014, see bottom of post for a GREAT YouTube piece Celebrities talk “The Law of Attraction]
As I slowly, gleefully sip a ceremonial does of cacao, with tingles all over my body from a powerful download of wisdom and guidance, I share some magic with you.
Life is good. Life is good, because of the learnings. Those learnings that continually come from some really, really painful, tough times and clearing my ‘stuff’; i.e my negative emotions and beliefs.
We’re all on an interesting journey as we come into our power and connect with our divinity (blog on what “A Woman in Our Power” is click here). As we experience tough times, it’s sooo important to keep that in mind – that we are Divine Magnificent Beings, or spiritual beings having a human experience.
Anyway, I digress; I’m writing about the Law of Attraction right? What’s the LoA got to do with tough times? Well, when we move through our tough times, we get light infusions (light = wisdom), so as we learn, and grow, we become lighter. We attract more of what we love. We do this by simply FEELING the emotions, whatever they might be. That clears them, leaving us to manifest what we love.
There’s often a lot of fear around actually being real and feeling our stuff; fear, pain, anger and other emotions.
Sunset, Kailua Kona, Hawaii
The Law of Attraction made big news nearly ten years ago when the movie ‘The Secret’ was launched. I remember watching it and jumping & dancing around my home celebrating at the message it conveyed. My partner had been telling me about all this magic for years; how your thoughts and words create your reality. I must admit, there was a part of me that doubted him, could it really be that simple, and how does it work? I wondered.
When I watched the film I truly celebrated – I was SO happy it was true and this information was now in the mainstream.
As great as ‘The Secret’ was though, it also brought up a lot of confusion, doubt and fear. Many people thought that you had to feel amazing all the time. They thought that if you felt any negative emotions, you would attract negativity.
This is not true. It’s SO important to bear this in mind as we create the new paradigm. We MUST feel our feelings to clear them. Alchemise them. Otherwise they’re lurking around under the surface in your subconscious creating again, what you don’t love.
Your Magnificence comes from those feelings, as does enlightenment. There’s no quick route to a blissful life, it’s the journey and it’s through continually allowing yourself to feel your feelings that you get to bliss. I don’t suggest you wallow in them, just be real and allow yourself to feel them. Neither do I recommend drowning them with things like alcohol, drugs, smoking and busy-ness, but just start being conscious of them, allow.
As Joseph Campbell says;
‘Pain is inherent,
Suffering is optional.’
There’s SUCH peace underneath those feelings if you simply allow yourself to sit with them, and I can’t speak highly enough of the Attitude of Gratitude….
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.
It turns what we have into enough, and more.
It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.
It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today,
And creates a vision for tomorrow.” Melody Beattie
If you look at my blog Beliefs & The Power of The Subconscious Mind you’ll see that it’s the subconscious that creates our reality. So if our negative emotions are tucked away there, if we’re ignoring them, or we’re afraid to simply FEEL them, we create more situations where we HAVE to feel them. For instance the same relationship patterns with partners, bosses, etc. etc. That’s why those that push our buttons are our best teachers.
As one of my Shamanic teacher used to say; ‘There’s nothing to fear, but fear itself’. When we fear something, we’re giving our power away, we give power to whatever we fear… therefore that’s what we manifest (see below for many celebrities’ view on this.) When we shift the fear, we have all that power we’ve been channelling (subconsciously) into the fear, we take the hand of fear, and walk with it… shifting the power towards what we love, walking the path our soul is calling us to take… in love.
We’re all Masters of the Law of Attraction, because we’re constantly creating.
Are you creating what you love OR what you don’t love? Look at your life now for instant feedback. It’s a reflection of your past thoughts. We’re all manifesting things we DON’T want as well as those we DO want.
When you clear your negative emotions, you have room for the juicy high vibrations to create what you DO love.
The Law of Clarity
When you’re clear of the negative emotions (anger, frustration, grief, sadness etc.) that recreate unwanted situations and patterns in your life, you’re a clear vessel. You vibrate with feelings of joy, love, happiness, peace and THEN you create that magic in your life, attracting what you love.
Use gratitude for where you are now and what you have; this is the bridge to even more magical outcomes. Let me know how you get on with The Law of Clarity and please feel free to share this post.
I love you!

They seem to be talking about ‘The Law of Clarity’.. Enjoy creating lovelies, and feel free to share this blog on your social networks and with friends. Aloha x
Remember your power!
In any moment, in any situation, you have the power of choice.
Choose who you spend time with.
Choose how you feel.
Choose your dreams.
Choose your state of being.
Choose what action to take.
Choose how you interpret anything.
Choose whether, or how you react to someone or a situation.
The more you choose to be in love, the more you are being the change you wish to see in the world.
This DOES mean speaking your truth, and being courageous enough to be real with others.
In fact, it’s all about being real; from the motivation of love, rather than fear.
Good luck & I love you!
I’m so very excited because this is…
The first day of the life I choose…
It’s also the first day I’m using the tools from a wonderful course called ‘Blogging from the Heart’ with Susannah Conway. I LOVE writing, but I have a juicy little inner critic who always asks me ‘is this the way it’s meant to be done?’ About my inner gremlin; after spending most of my life not conscious of it, then conscious, then berating it, now I love it, we’re friends and I love its little tricks 🙂 As I’ve become conscious of it, I’ve taken the power out of its negativity. I LOVE blogging because there’s actually no ‘right way’ to do it. We’re all unique, and blogging gives us a chance to shine and share our ways; there is no right or wrong.
I was drawn to this course because I know that when I speak from the heart it’s truthful communication sometimes with joy, sadness, passion and raw vulnerablity. At least now, it’s becoming clear to me that that’s my current focus.
So what would I like to share today?
I’d like to offer a gentle stroke of your forehead. Y’know, we’re experiencing a time on this planet like never before. Everything is shifting and changing. What isn’t of light, beauty and love is coming up to be released.
Please be gentle with yourself dear soul, and remember the journey we’re on is like a spiral.
Old patterns WILL come up, but like the spiral of a fern unfurling its fronds towards the light, the spiral gets less and less until all of the fern is in the light. When you’re in a dark place, know that it’s all part of the process of showing your beauty to the sun and welcome it in. Darkness doesn’t exist in the sunshine, so shine, baby shine!
I love you Divine Wonder Full Being 😉
Love, light & magic,
Gerri (Geraldine) McMahon
