Happy New Year! 2017
Step into that new year with a sparkly sashay and smile 😉
Here’s a little message a suggestion on how you can create your bestest year so far.
It’s a three part process that can take anything from 10 seconds to an hour if you want to devote that time to it. It’s a great way to close the year, and move into a new year, refreshed, renewed and READY for the best so far.
The way you CREATE is focus… focussing on what you DO want… so this will assist you in getting clarity, and letting go of what you do NOT want to focus on 😉

A short blog on happiness and thoughts…
with a quotation from Ashleigh Grace Walkinshaw;
“If people only knew…the divine POWER of their thoughts!
First thing when I wake up is to think of the love, the people and “things” I have to be grateful for.
I pray for them all.
I DECIDE to be happy.
I don’t even get up unless I have a smile on my face.
I laugh a lot – especially when things aren’t necessarily going my way, because they are illusions that won’t last longer than one breath unless I LET it.
When we learn to love ourselves, first, everything changes. Because we love ourselves, we decide to be happy every morning when we wake up, because it just seems like the best choice for remaining positive all day.
It makes us glow and people will remark about it often.
Everyone wants to know why I’m so happy all the time and I say, “Because I want to be.” Is there a better reason?
You see, it all has to do with Divine Intent.
If I have divine intent, then ALL my relationships are divine. They are truth based. I bring happiness with me, it is not a burden I place on the shoulders of loved ones.
You are not responsible for my happiness – I am.
It IS a discipline, something to practice every day until it becomes normal habit.
Unless you are a fortunate one born with the “happy gene”.
It is really not as complicated as we can make it.”
Ashleigh Grace Walkinshaw
222 2222 New Beginnings…
What does it mean when you see the number 2 repeated?
Synchronicity and messages come through in many ways, especially repeated numbers. You might see it as the date, or on clocks, the time, car registration numbers, telephone numbers, receipts, change or the total on your receipt.
So what 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 is saying – keep going, do not to give up, be patient. Your seed is just below the soil, ready to sprout into a beautiful flower (or your creation). Just because you can’t see anything, it doesn’t mean it’s not developing. More on the stages of creation and manifestation below.
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… ‘Maybe doing fabulous, enjoyable work is for others, the dreamers, not me….’ you think.
You don’t think you can leave your marriage 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. Be patient.
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 that my clients refrain from using the word ‘how’ as it catapults them firmly 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… It 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 is 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 ….
“The imagination is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”
“Imagination is more powerful than knowledge.”
So this is the stage where we doubt ourselves… many 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 leave your relationship?
Are you sure you want to change your vibration and your life…
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, divine magnificent being, 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 is impossible to manifest.
In this stage, you begin to manifest more and more and more of what you love.
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. 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. You ‘do 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 discover how to do this, feel free to ask me…. or remind me to write another blog on this.
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 is 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!
Do you see 222 – or other numbers a lot?
What numbers have a special significance for you?
How do you get ‘YES’ signs from the Universe/angels etc.?

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

If you enjoyed reading my blog, I’d really appreciate it if you’d share it on your favourite social media sites like Twitter and Facebook (links above), or email it to a friend.
Thank you so much!
This is a little ‘ps.’ to my recent blog “4 Steps Back To The Light….”
As long as we’re constantly moving towards creating more love and happiness in our life, while rooted in the Present, we have the key.
Doubt, Fear, Procrastination etc. will always be there, we need to create regardless.
This is what I said to someone in a session earlier today. She is fairly and squarely on the Shamanic Priestess path, and is just coming more and more into her Power, gleaning learnings from a great period of growth…..
“Name me a Shaman who has had an easy life.”
As a little treat, addendum and thank you to MysticMama.com I’d like to share this beautiful piece which sums up my journey, my recent experience of despair, and our beautiful lives.
Butterfly, Symbol Of Our Spiritual
“In Hopi lore, the butterfly is the symbol of man’s spiritual transformation.
‘At the level of existence, when it crawls on Mother Earth in the form of a caterpillar, it only sees what is right in front of it,’ Grandmother Mona explains. ‘There comes a time in the development when it puts itself into a little cocoon and enters the darkness. In this darkness, it completely breaks down. During that time a great change takes place…”
“‘Finally it emerges into this world, into this life as a beautiful creature,’ Grandmother Mona says. ‘Yet it doesn’t immediately fly away. It sits there as if to be making a connection again with the elements of life: the water, the air, the fire, the earth. Then there is a moment when its wings start fluttering, developing movement, developing strength within itself using these elements of life.
‘When the moment comes and the butterfly takes flight, it suddenly sees the world from a completely different point of view, a view of vaster beauty and a much, much wider worldview. This is what I was told about being a butterfly.’
“…Grandmother Mona believes the Hopi legend of the butterfly can see us through these turbulent times of darkness and confusion by revealing to us our path of transformation.
“These times can actually be viewed as necessary to enable humanity as a whole to transform into a comprehension of the truth of our oneness with each other and with all of Creation.
“Only by going into darkness and breaking down our old ways can we move from the myopic view of the caterpillar to the greatly expanded view of the butterfly~ a necessary view if we are to save the beauty and resources of our planet for the next seven generations to come.
“Then we will have emerged out of the darkness of ignorance into the beauty of the butterfly to see the wonder, hope, compassion, faith, and charity so essential for our survival.”
~Grandmother Mona Polacca from Carol Schaefer’s book Grandmothers Counsel the World: Women Elders Offer Their Vision for Our Planet
The Top 3 Mistakes that Professional Women in their 30’s Make That Keep Them Depressed & Miserable At Work!
It’s time to step into your new world and create a life you love? Today is the first day of the rest of the life you CHOOSE.
My passion is guiding wonderful women to create their very own Heaven on Earth. The first step is to get clarity on life purpose and soul purpose.
When we do work we love, you create a powerful foundation, a beautiful new structure to build everything else on.
From 3 – 1, the things that DO NOT assist Women in creating a life they love….
3. Blinkered Focus…
What we put our attention on, we create. Women are often unaware of the beliefs, self talk and opinions that consist of their ‘inner voice’ or ‘gremlin’. Basically their thoughts are not empowering. And the opinions of others don’t inspire. They then lead to emotions which aren’t empowering and uplifting.
Begin to notice your self talk. Replace any negative thoughts and beliefs with positive ones. Become aware of those times when you feel like giving up on your dreams.
Start to become aware of your concerns and worries; 90% fo what we worry about never comes true.
What would be like if you did follow your dreams, your heart, and eventually create the life you love. Use your imagination as the bridge between the here and now, and what you would love to create.
Take my word for it, EVERYTHING is made up. Luckily so are our beliefs …
For instance, a common belief is that we’re not good enough. If this resonates, how about you list all the wonderful things you’ve acheived? You might need to enlist a friend or partner for this exercise, as it often takes someone else to help us to realise our magnificence. Once you do this, and you see the wonderful things you HAVE created, then start imagining what you could create when both your mind, heart AND soul are also playing the game. Sooo start making up what you DO love. Use your imagination to dream up the life you would love, worry is such a ridiculous use of the imagination. Shift your perspective for 2014 and have fun with it!
2. It’s Never Too Late
Know that There IS enough time!
It’s a known fact, that when we take our last breaths, we only regret the things we haven’t done. It’s so common if someone is told they only have a year or a month or whatever to live, they start doing everything they love. Then they go into remission, and become well again! Don’t wait til it’s too late! Live the life you love now. Become aware of the things you’d love to do, but maybe you talk yourself out of them for time reasons, or even for money reasons.
I love the quotation; ‘shoot for the moon, if you miss you’ll end up in the stars.’
You might have invested a lot in the life you’re living now, but is it fulfilling. Is it causing you stress? Louise Hay the famous author, and life changer set up ‘Hay House Publishing’ probably the most successful publishing house for spiritual books in her 50s AFTER she’d been diagnosed with an incurable disease. She simply said NO to that life, and created the life she does love. Think of the amount of people whose lives she’s changed. MORE than millions!
Is it fair that you’re sitting around thinking it’s too late when you could be a future life changer? Is it fair to those people who could do with your assistance, your story, your inspiration to NOT go for the life you love?
1. Get clarity on what you WOULD love….
So many women simply continue on the stressful treadmill, going to a job, working waay more than 9-5 in a job they hate. Then they spend their money on posh clothes and holidays, because they’re simply not happy with the life they’re living.
I did this for many years, although I used to use things that were much more harmful to my health to resolve my tension. I was close to a nervous breakdown before I realised I could kill myself living a miserable life. I was even fooling myself that I was making a difference in the world as I produced a “Jerry Springer” type show 🙁 Back then I didn’t have all the tools and knowledge I have now, the most wonderful one being the ability to tune into my own higher wisdom in an accurate tangible way.
Create the vision, dream about the things you DO like. What direction is your soul calling you to take? Write a list. Design your ‘ideal day’. These are all great ideas and they work! If I ever feel like I’m losing connection with my heart and what I love, I write a list of the things I’d do on my ‘Ideal Day’, it’s sooo liberating, and often they are all things I can do right now, so I do, and it shifts me into a much higher gear, more blissful living.
I remember New Year more than ten years ago, I left the television industry a while before and I did one of those exercises where you write down how you’d love your life to be. I wrote down ‘to be a full time healer’ and instantly I became aware of my ‘inner voice’ or ‘gremlin’ piping up and saying ‘yeah right, you???? Ha! As if!’ So funny.
That was a long time ago, and not only have I already been a full time healer, I’ve become so much more, more happy, fulfilled, confident and real!
Read on as I’m sharing a groovy way to actually visit your version of Heaven on Earth later, so you get clarity on the direction your soul is calling you to take WITHOUT any negativity clouding the way.
The ability to love your work is something that fascinated me for many, many years before I managed to actually DO work I love. I really didn’t think it was possible – isn’t work just something that brings in the pay cheque at the end of the month? Lol. Whenever I met someone who did something they loved I used to put them on a pedestal, as some unbelievable icon of a person living a life I could never have!
When I was a television producer which was a fun, dream job, but it eventually turned into a nightmare. I was super stressed, working 70 hours a week, unhealthy and frequently ill. I really didn’t see any way out so I stuck it out for many years. I’d invested a lot into getting to the top of the career ladder, only to realise that ladder was leaning against the wrong building. It took courage and a leap into the unknown to leave, and I have NEVER looked back. That was over thirteen years ago and I’m pleased to say that I’m now fully on purpose and loving this grand adventure of a life. Having had such a difficult path to creating what I DO love, I now guide others to create a life on purpose, taking not the difficult bus, or even the easy bus, but the MAGIC bus.
I’m fascinated by the state of being ‘in flow’. It’s the space that racing drivers go into when they’re overtaking at ridiculous mph, or athletes, when time and space disappear and their only focus is on winning…. It’s like time slows down to allow them to enter a zone of magic and win the race. The state of consciousness reached when space & time stand still. When you’re totally captivated in what you’re doing. There are no thoughts of time, food or surroundings; there are simply no thoughts! It’s a feeling of being high and it’s a higher state of consciousness.
I realised recently that it’s the consciousness of being in oneness, of being connected with the divine. I experienced this ‘aha’ moment while in a Chocolate Ceremony in Spain a couple of weeks ago. As I sat there, totally ‘in the zone’ and blissed out I realised that this state of bliss is our natural state.
When I was sooo scared of leaving my media job, I could never in a gazamillion years that one day I’d be guiding others to GLOW IN THEIR FLOW. Now that’s what lights me up; connecting people with their passion, their flow and their divinity.
What lights you up?
What sparks you into that space of bliss where time and space don’t exist?
What are the doubts you hold that say you can’t do it?
Get clarity and connect with your Magnificence.
This is an invitation to join me between Solstice, Saturday 21st December and January 8th, 2014. There’s a new moon on New Years Day, after that we’ve got a week long portal for powerful intention-setting, and new paradigm creating juiciness! This is a super powerful time to get clarity on the life your soul is calling you to take, and discover what has prevented you from creating the life of your dreams.

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!
