Can you imagine who you are if you dropped all your old stories?
Are you ready to let go of your stories; all those things you tell yourself happened to you?
Who are you when you release your sotries and how do you feel?
By old stories I mean are those that no longer serve you and are well worn out. Perhaps you are a victim in them, treated unfairly, there is some abuse, power struggle etc.
Challenges can truely help makes us who we are yet there also comes a time to let go of and relase the old stories. It is good to let go.
When one is lost in old stories one is lost in ego, in a sperate identity possibly of some sort of victim. Each story you carry attaches you to some version of yourself, some character you play in that story. A story can be told a thousand ways and seen from a thousand different persepctives. Old stories that keep getting retold about soemthing that happened or isn't fair, either your own or someone else's, can really get tiring! Just think about it a moment and you may agree?
You don't have to give up any story, but what I'm inviting you to do is ask yourself what story are you hanging on to that you'd actually like to drop completely?
Can you name it out loud?
I have one that comes to mind and I am dropping it completely. I'm no longer going to repreat the same old words, phrases 'I'm no good at.... blah blah blah blah!'
I'm done with it, and am so happy to realise it's not true and that I can release it. Time to drop it!
Next time someone asks you about something, rather than go into the usual tale/ story, you might like to pause a few moments, breathe and see what new words arise. Life, breath, words, thoughts are delivered to us moment by moment. Allowing each moment to be birthed anew gifts us rich, abundanct, propoerous, fun and creative connections.
Here are two meditations I deveoped many years ago as a matter of survival!
They also help me feel more free, clear, happy and in peace, not to mention harmonious and unattached to stories!
They may not be for everyone, but they have helped me and may just help you.
Peace be with you love child of the universe X.
Purpose: Feel more harmony with life
Why: Breathing harmoniously for 10 minutes will bring more harmony into your life. Easy and it works!
Focus on a certain area such as health, home, work, finances, how you look, etc. for 21 breaths plus, to bring more harmony into these specific areas of your life. This exercise will shift the mind out of the ‘story’ it is playing and into the present moment where you are everything and nothing and all is possible. The crystalline grid around you alters with your breath and feelings, and this will then affect a different reality to open up in front of you. In a way a death occurs, a death of a thought pattern you’ve been stuck in and the death of the story you’ve been carrying around with you. This could be a story that has gone on all your life, (e.g. ‘my bad skin’ can be calmed by breathing harmoniously while pondering good skin, bad skin ,regular skin and giving thanks for your lovely skin!) or even may go generations back as you may observe how your parents also carried a story. Are you ready to let it go? Likewise it could be something that’s just popped up in your day and this meditation equally has the power to transform a ‘bad day’ into ‘good day’.
- Start with The Quick Power Breath Meditation to oxygenate the body and clear the mind. Use the stomach muscles as a pump to exhale and inhale 21 rapid breaths:
- Push all air out of lungs by pushing stomach muscles and spine in towards each other
- Inhale by pushing out stomach muscles and lower back away from spine (outwards away from each other)
- Exhale and inhale rapidly for 2 minutes or as long is comfortable. If this is your first time to try this, 5 breaths may be enough to begin with. Stop if feel dizzy and just add a few breaths to it each time you repeat the meditation.
- Take five quick deeper breaths observing long pauses in-between breaths to help the body and shift the mind.
- Tune into the feeling of harmony in your stomach muscles and lower back. As you breathe feel the muscles moving out and in harmoniously, like gentle waves in the water. Stay with the muscles moving in and out harmoniously as you breath. Go at your natural speed of breathing with constant awareness of the stomach muscles moving harmoniously. Do this for 5 minutes while not thinking of anything of anything specific but just focusing on the harmonious movement of the stomach muscles and back.
- Bring to mind anything which may have been upsetting you. Continue breathing harmoniously while you ponder this and give thanks for it and. This will take focus but increase harmony in your day and whatever area of life you were focusing upon.
- Well done.
Gautama Buddha, also known as Siddhārtha Gautama, or simply the Buddha, was a sage on whose teachings Buddhism was founded. He is believed to have lived and taught mostly in eastern India sometime between the fourth and sixth centuries BCE.
The word Buddha means "awakened one" or "the enlightened one." According to Buddha, attachment is the cause of all suffering. Attachment can be towards anything such as how we think things should be, or for sensual satisfaction, for things such as food, money, fear, youthful looks, thought patterns, sadness, bitterness, certain people… It’s also a strategy of the monkey mind to keep one busy and distracted. If you find yourself spending your time longing for things or running away from thing (addictions and aversions) know that this is the monkey innocent mind at work and not your ‘true’ state of being. When one is lost in stories one is lost in ego. Can you imagine who you are if you dropped all your stories?
The main things we attach to are:
- Stories: This happened to me, and they they did this and I did that…
- People: Can be letting go of an ex, old firend, someone who has died/ left the body. Includes over attachment to epople in your life, children, paretns, partners etc. Allow always for there to be white light and space between you, between you and those youmiss, find challenging and love.
- Things: What you don’t have you don’t need right now. Let go of what you no longer need, honour the folow of life, releasing that which you no longer need or feel called to give to others. Enter an abudnance mindset where an opporutnity for everything you require is generously presented itlsef to you.
- Places: Yes some are very dear to us. But we must let go of everything in order to be here. Holding onto wanting to be somewhere else, prevents you from really landing and embodying this moment fully. And this is very much part of our purpose; to embody this moment fully…and see what arises!
The following exercise to help you let go of attachment, and thus feel happier and more able to experience and enjoy the present moment.
- For 10 harmonious breaths, observe the stomach muscles move in towards the spine as you exhale and extend outwards as you inhale.
- Tune into the feeling of delight. Inhale and exhale the feeling for 21 breaths, pausing in between each breath to focus upon the feeling of delight.
- Tune into the space around you. Exhale light into the space around you and inhale from the space light from the space into your body for 21 breaths; on each exhale expand the light so that in 21 breaths it fills the space and even neighbourhood you are in.
- Open your palm and call in your attachment. Ask it to appear in symbolic form on the palm of your hand. Talk to it:
- Ask it what it’s purpose is
- Ask it why there is disharmony between you and it
- Ask what it would like and what its insight/gift is
- If it feels right, feel unconditional love for it, accepting it fully, connecting you and it as one.
- When completed, hug it, give thanks for it and watch it dissolve.
- For specific issues, you can also try the following exercise:
- For an attachment to food: Imagine your last meal and your next meal. Now tune into and imagine the space in between the two meals, be in this space. Accept this feeling. There may be a bit of panic, but breathe harmoniously in this space and it will harmonise you to the peace in between meals.
- For an attachment to money or fear of not having money,
- Tune into the space between your last money payment and your next.
- Imagine all the possible ways money or whatever you need could come to you.
- Breathe peacefully and harmoniously in this space as your energy system relaxes and quietens. Be still in the space of accepting where you are while welcoming in what is on the way.
- For an attachment to exercise or lack of exercise, tune into the space in between your last moment of exercise and your next, breathe calmly in the space in between.
- For an attachment to other people or nights out, tune into the last great night out you enjoyed or the last time you enjoyed someone’s company, and the possible next one. Now be in the space between these two events and breathe calmly and harmoniously. Basically accept where you are!
- For an attachment to beauty; tune into the last time you felt beautiful and now imagine the next time. Accept being in the space between this and the next time.
- You get the idea; adapt this for anything else that comes to mind. Ask yourself, what else am I attached to that would benefit from this exercise? See the last time, the next time and be in the white light inbetween the two. Breathe harmoniously until the energy calms.
- Check in with the body, that it is feeling more realxed, at ease and at peace.
- Well done!

Harmony exists in the now in every moment, and can be tapped into at any time regardless of what is going on. Next time you find yourself experiencing a challenge, ask yourself,
“Where is the harmony now?”
Feel for it and allow it to guide you. Harmony is a healthy focus and a super guide. Sometimes one can feel it but is too lazy or busy to go with it. Discovering and moving with your own internal rhythm and timing is central to exploring and experiencing harmony.
Being in harmony with yourself; you speak truth, love easily and exist peacefully.
The dominant vibration one holds is how one feels and what one attracts, i.e. if one breathes harmoniously, one will automatically feel more harmony and circumstances will occur more harmoniously in their life. In this modern, busy world, harmony is definitely more a choice than something one accidentally falls into.
When one feels stuck in life it is often due to their inner GPS being set to drama, sadness, anger, self-pity or a myriad of other unhelpful vibrations!. Try shifting your central core feeling to harmony today and see how your day unfolds. Focus on it strongly for a few minutes to really conenct with it then continue with your day. When you remember, take 3 harmonious breaths in a row.
One has the power to alter one’s vibration at any time. By focusing upon harmonious breathing, one accepts what is as is and one’s reality alters.
Many people especially those who regularly meditate are able to alter their vibration at will. The feelings you focus on in meditation will be reflected back to you throughout the day, in this case, harmony will be reflected back to you through harmonious feelings and experiences. A worth enough reason to focus upon it for 3 minutes+!
The more harmonious the breath, the more harmonious you’ll feel and regardless of reality, you'll perceive it from a more harmonious place.
Questions that can help to favourably open up the mind:
I wonder how today will go if it is delightful from this minute onwards to the second I fall asleep?
I wonder how tomorrow would be if I wake up feeling delight, have an amazing, satisfying and delightful day, and then fall to sleep feeling delight?
Often asking this question heralds a wave of joy for the day ahead and following days ahead!
The master and leader of your destiny is arising within you. You are a master, awakening as a veil of illusion is evaporating.
You can observe yourself more clearly and realise how powerful you are in creating your reality.
What if life is a self-fulfilling prophecy and you are the one prophesizing!?
This is worth some serious consideration. What do you ponder? Imagine? Self-prophesize? Bring harmony in and see what that tells you and delivers.
In this new paradigm, we take the perspective that there are no problems. Anything that used to be considered a problem is now an opportunity. List here any old problems (left column) that are now being seen as opportunities (right column). This can help one release old patterns and shift to delight!
Problem – What are you running away from?
Opportunity –Seeing harmony in it and realising the gift of the situation
C'est ca! Even just one thing- one 'issue!' Bring it into harmony now- and return to it throughout the next few days. Nice One!
“Imagination should be used, not to escape reality but to create it” Colin Wilson
Giving up identity and being nothing for a while!
Our identity includes self-importance as much as lack of self-belief, ‘I’m useless at x,’ and I've come to observe how my moments improve greatly when I drop it and step into being nothing! My voice sounds better, I'm less scared(if I'm scared!) and freer to dance and be in the present moment.
Giving up “good” and “bad” and replacing it with oneness is part of the leap in evolution that we are experiencing and it is so wonderfully liberating.
Within cosmic oneness our consciousness can metamorphose into being everything and nothing. Indeed we are the space in which consciousness itself arises and all exists. The cosmic mind is limitless, and gratitude, compassion, love and delight are gateways to bathe in and merge with this beautiful blissful state.
Whatever we were told you were e.g. pretty, ugly, strong, weak, good writer, sexy, strange, emotional, fun... are just aspects of being and perhaps of what we have experienced. In the big picture, let's remember that we are everything and nothing on a journey of experiences and consciousness. We are limitless and have the potential to experience so many things depending upon our focus. There is no need any longer to limit oneself to an identity created from past experiences.
One’s ultimate role I feel is to observe and allow the light to be. Look around, observe the light in the now. We have got to give up focusing upon our addictions and aversions for a moment for this to occur. Just drop them to the side for a moment and see where the light actually is. It will always draw us to that which is beneficial for us. Our focus upon it will cause it to grow in our life and thus we will notice it more and more.
A favourite game
Is to take time regularly to do nothing! If you haven't in a while, please consider inviting yourself now to give this a go for 5 - 15 minutes. In the space of nothing, something will arise. We listen, observe and allow this to guide. If there is a season for nothing, it must be winter, the season of the northern hemisphere.Just look at nature. This is the season for nothing; Winter is perfect for taking it easy, slowness and deep rest and silent rejuvination. Of course there is time in every season and day for this, but especially now if you are in the northern hemisphere, it is to be honoured and enjoyed!
The state of Oneness is a state of love, but this can also be described as nothingness, which in a way means beyond the ego.
As we identify with the one love that exists within us, in all living beings, and in the space, we naturally realize our connection with everyone and everything. Magnificent joy and satisfaction arise as the distance between oneself and another evaporates!
Ultimately one is being the true self as one becomes completely open to the now and flow of spirit. In this state, there is no chasing after or running away from anything, there is no limiting ego identity dictating how one is, one simply “is.”
This “being nobody or nothing” is extremely liberating as we are no longer limited by beliefs or thoughts. However, the journey to “becoming nothing” is dependent upon a foundation of loving wholeness of self-acceptance. It has been my experience that self-love and love for life, that is the natural bestowing and receiving of love, are as essential as breathing for this state to occur. I have a lovely meditation that supports this if you are interested. Just send a pm.
The Law of Attraction says
"That which is like unto itself, is drawn. When you say, “Birds of a feather flock together,” you are actually talking about the Law of Attraction. You see the Law of Attraction evidenced in your society when you see that the one who speaks most about illness has illness; when you see that the one who speaks most about prosperity has prosperity.
As you begin to understand—or better stated, as you begin to remember—this powerful Law of Attraction, the evidence of it that surrounds you will be easily apparent, for you will begin to recognize the exact correlation between what you have been thinking about and what is actually coming into your experience. Nothing merely shows up in your experience. You attract it—all of it. No exceptions."
Jerry, Esther and Abraham Hicks
Being nothing enables what truly is,beyond the busy mind and limited beliefs of human being to arise. It invites the love and power of life to communicate with us, be us, move through us and shape us. In 2017 I have some great visions and wonderful work projects to focus on, but when I'm not working, I plan on doing nothing more! To the fun of life, being nothing and allowing the love of the universe to guide and move through us, I wish this for the lightworkers of the world. I bow, salute and send you love.
If you are interested in more of this, please get in contact and consider booking into the Soul’s Goals. Our next workshop is taking place on Saturday the 21st of January in Dublin city centre. They also take place on line over a series of weeks and months. I'd love to hear from you as we know it is energising, fun and powerful to work together! Click here for facebook event page
If you are eager to experience more
Consider taking time each day to do nothing- and see what arises over the next few days and weeks. Meditate, walk in nature in nature, draw pictures, play music and see what happens. Create this empty space where ideas can arise in the moment and be fulfilled. It is great if you have a few hours, but 3 minutes is even effective. If it is uncomfortable, be willing to feel the pain. Welcome it in. See if it has a gift or insight for you. Starting writing and see what comes to you. Breathe deeply and calmly. The soul can unknot any imbalance in the energy body this way, and bring information to your awareness. The pain is energy and with slow calm breathing it can often come back into harmony. Feel free to contact a healer, councillor, therapist if you feel you would benefit from professional support. That’s why we are here! We are here for each other :)
We are One, guided by the same light and in nothingness we naturally play and thrive.Thank you.
An amazing opportunity is here!

Collaborating with Love may not be easy but can work WONDERS!
It shifts us from 'me me me' to serving and serving is definitely a way to being in the flow. We are here for each other and to serve and support each other and when we head away from that the ride is not so smooth.
There is a flow and it impulses us to give and receive so that the flow can move through all. It has no hands except for ours and so impulses us to share and recieve in certain moments.
When this inner awareness is awake, life flows effortlessly! When we ignore it though the rides seems to get bumpy and it becomes harder to recognize it.
Collaborating and surrendering to love also enables us to break out of sticky patterns of behavior and conditioning to free flow in the now with higher consciousness. Yes our identity changes, in a good way. We don't have to be the way our parents were, or soceity were or how we used to be, instead we can use this guide to rewrite our software anew and thus direct our lives into greater harmony.
It also reflects the shift in consciousness that we as a group are experiencing;
that we are separate, many billions of different people with different thoughts and conditioning running around the planet in a bit of a chaotic, competitive and destructive manner
considering that we are all part of one being.
There is a higher consciousness that can be picked up by all minds, like a radio station that can be heard as one steps out of 'me me me' to lovingly serving. It is up to each individual to voluntarily choose to align with this loving consciousness wavelength, and give and receive as it lovingly impulses us to do so. The more we listen the easier it is to hear and feel it. The less we follow it, often the harder it is to hear it.
How do you know if you are in the mind or in the energy of love?
Are you are thinking a lot? Naming things right and wrong? Is the mind feeling tired and irritated? You might be stuck in the head and benefit from moving focus to the heart space. How do we move into the heart space? There are many ways. One is to do more of what you love. Another is to choose to collaborate with love.
Literally focus on your heart. You can also affirm and feel, 'I am love,' and consciously choose to collaborate with love in your reality. Return to this choice and feeling regularly during the day and see how things unfold, If you exercise/dance/ cook focus on it and see how it feels. What would love like to say through you? To whom? What actions does it inspire in you? Does it inspire to give something to someone? To receive something graciously!?
The mind relaxes when I choose love and feel love in the mind! The mind is actually a servant of the heart. Trouble arises when the mind thinks that it is in control and has to maintain control. It is not able to do this and stress arises. It is a natural evolution for all to align more and more with love consciousness.
If the mind is getting angry/ going crazy/too active for comfort, it is highly recommend to practice the above for 3 minutes or even 3 breaths at a time. Feel love in your heart. Love the mind, affirm 'I am love,' and see what happen!
Till next time,
Loving you :)
Even though I can feel the change discussed below I can still feel love thankfully and wish you a very Happy 2016. There is a big wave arising at present offering great opportunity. Looking to see where the peak is; I see peaks at 2016, 2017, 2018, 2021, 2023, 2028, 2038, 2042 and onwards to the point that I'm not sure this is a wave that will go up and then down, rather it may just expand outwards like eternal concentric circles.
Top tips are to embrace personal development and all relationships. Everything else will flow as these are nurtured. This year please come join us at a soul's goal seminar, soul holiday retreat, healing or skype session or look into our natural health products if you feel the call. We are here to support you and we are here to support inner peace and happiness. To your success and delicious n delightful expansion during 2016 and beyond. Aho!!!
I've seen a potential dark four days in early January 2016. Sounds like a scary movie but it just's a transition from one chapter to another…
This is to remind us that it is not something to panic about even though it can feel that way when certain states of being we are familiar with seem to disappear.
Flirt with the possibility that life is supporting you and always working out for you. The dark days may be further magnified by the contrast of the bright lights, intensity and sensitivity of Christmas and New Year.
Expect a shift in your awareness to somewhere new. Go out and walk, do the obvious things that help you get through the days such as good food, sleep, movies, hugs, kindness towards others and simply breathing~
One of my favourite exercises is to:
1. List your questions- if you have any, then let go, the answers will arrive when the mind is healthy and open.
2. Breathing practise:
Inhale: feel your awareness focusing into a little light in the centre of the chest- Pause.
Exhale: tune into the space around the physical body. as you exhale imagine and feel the light and good energy in the heart space expand into the space surrounding the body- Pause.
Use the stomach muscles as a pump to inhale and exhale.
Repeat x 12. Practice morning, night and inbetween. This will help you feel more peaceful transition the void of the unknown.
Challenging moments can arise and depart with ease when you choose to let go and for example practice the above meditation.
The inner light strengthens. New ideas and energy flows. As far as cleaning out your cupboards, this will energetically bring light back into inner places. If you feel the call give it a go- for at least three days in a row. For the Northern Hemisphere; Enjoy and give yourself time over these next 6 – 8 weeks to rest, refuel, sleep and take it easy so that as spring arrives you’ll be ready and happy to embody the flow of increasing joy and energy.
For those in the Southern Hemisphere, enjoy too and thank you for embodying the light at this time xxx
I can only recommend taking the time to do one session. I'm sure I'm going to do many more, it's absolutely worth it. Orla, I'm so grateful, I can't tell you how much has changed in just 2 weeks!!! Thank you for everything. Marie
I feel more connected to myself and at peace. Thank you. Everything feels easier and I can even breathe more easily. Frank
Healing is an ancient art form going back many thousands of years. It can help you let go of the past, of patterns and traumas both known and unknown. In addition you'll feel more peaceful, heart-centered and enjoy greater clarity. It can also help align you with your soul's purpose and inner guidance and thus help you achieve your calling in life with greater ease, joy and clairty. It can be deeply enriching and profoundly life changing.
Who am I?
Why am I here?
Did my soul choose this path? Why?
How can I be of service to the world?
Are these questions you ponder? Are you seeking support on the journey? Someone who can see the true you?
There is a leap of evolution occurring in the world at this time.
Are you feeling the pull to experience life on a deeper level?
To live a more purposeul, meaningful, interesting and beautiful life?
It is a pleasure and honour to do this work. I have devoted my life to healing, wellbeing, awakening and self-liberation. It's amazing what progress can be made with some focus and how we can redirect our life story to a more joyful path.
This opportunity is open to all.
If you've had enough, are feeling called or simply wish to take your journey to the next level, I welcome you to get in contact.

A little about what to expect
Some people feel the energy moving and see colours and visions and some may not as it is unique to each individual and each treatment.
In certain cases messages or visions are received which are shared at the end of the session.
At the end of the healing, people report feeling peaceful, centred and connected. A recent email said,
'Thank you so much, since the session I feel more myself that I have in many months...'
A written summary with recommendations including meditations, supplements, mantras etc is sent to the client following the healing.
The client is encouraged to take on a daily practise of meditation, affirmations, and possibly more, with a follow up session taking place in general anywhere between 2 and 6 weeks.
Email support is included between sessions.
This work is for those who are ready and willing to self-realise. If this is you, I would love to hear from you.
Energy treatments are available from:
