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.
It’s been an emotional time meeting my birthday this year. And I understand why, I feel fucking amazing! So much focus on turning 40. The last time I remember this much emotion about a birthday was turning 30 when I had a 3 week sad lull at my age and achievements! Jeez it can be tough growing up!
As I headed towards this day the past few months I have felt an inner strength growing and my feet feeling more and more connected and supported by this beautiful planet. I feel like many parts of me are coming together, the full package is here! All the ingredients have steadily been assembled over the past 40 years and now I am fully standing here smiling, easy, likes it’s taken 40 years for an explosion to occur. I‘ve watched slowly and felt the pain of being blown apart and the beauty of coming back together again. Now I feel together, still human, still feeling emotions but together, and this is great!
The aging thing is mostly fine, but where did that time go!? Most people around me have a partner and children. I guess I would not have experienced what I have if I had.
And that is the big one I have found at this precious age. The pain of being the woman without child or partner. Of course I’ve had a partner, even a few! I also feel deep within a mother though I have no children of my own.
To be honest I felt an incredible sadness about this the day after my birthday and it surprised me. I am a happy woman, surely that is the point, if there is a point, which I’m beginning to think there is not, but if there was a point would it not be about quality of life rather than the children and partner checklist!?
To pine after what we don’t have is so not interesting. It feels not only a waste of energy but also boring and insulting to life that gifts us so much every day. Though sometimes I know it can feel so hard. I used to visit a friend who spent most of the time of our visit complaining no-one cared about them. They seemed oblivious to the fact they had someone who cared front of them. You know what I mean?
I’ve learned a lot about happiness and have worked with it on many levels the past 14 years. It led me to make my first ever real choice. 13 years ago I made a choice to be happy. I was feeling depressed, living in New Zealand at what should have been the happiest time of my life, great home, great location, great partner, basically had everything going for me…except a dark cloud! I was so busy doing what I thought were the right things to do, I had not ever stopped to ask myself really deep questions of what I personally wanted from life. And that’s where so much changed. The first choice I made back then was to be happy, how funny a well educated young woman had not realised till the depth of sadness was visited that happiness was a choice and that she had had power at the click of her fingers to make that choice! On wards it went as I moved through so many wonderfully amazing experiences while learning to navigate deep sad soul wrenching sadness! It took 5 years of intense self-work and cleansing on many levels to heal and stabalise myself in peace from that moment, though like Irish weather there were intermittent beautiful sunny spells in between thankfully. This is the standard story of most healers/artists, the shell(ego) has to crack for light to come through.
In the Chinese 5 elements we continually move through each element, all of life being composed of continuous cycles, short and long. So staying stagnant is never the way! Moving through, embracing change and however you feel is the way. Use these feelings, they have power!
To the timeless mind this way feels like an amazing journey and opportunity into wholeness.
Each of us are experiencing different aspects of the evolution of man, this is my journey.
So here I am; strong, knowing yet vulnerable, happy yet sometimes weary! Spiritual awakenings and energetic shifts can take time to integrate. It’s not a race but I‘ve learned it helps to have a purpose to each morning’s beginning. This is why I have spent years developing healing sessions, Meditation techniques and The Soul’s Goals Books to help other’s going through this shift.
Being 40 is cool. I feel like being more public with my work and sharing more openly. I welcome this and feel like there is such a magnificent path ahead. May we all find our magnificent paths regardless of money, children, partner or other outer details. May we touch and locate this true inner richness, the light, the inner spark and share it with each other, for is that not why we are here, for each other to raise ourselves and each other up? To enjoy connection with all? Time has taught me much. I have loved deeply and hurt deeply. I have journeyed in self-awareness and into the presence and realisation of Divinity and continue to. There is so much love, understanding, compassion, depth and more. I discovered the inner flame and integrated it through my entire being. Yes it’s taken a while but God is it powerful! And watch out because I’m going to use it! Remember evaluating your life on a Disney movie or someone else’s vision is bad for your health! There are no rules and we decide our own value! You are so valuable and wonderful, trust me. Do you love yourself as much as the most beautiful starry night!? Nice! We are here for each other. Let’s keep smiling and raising each other up. Xx
Here's my gift for you, enjoy and remember I love you this much and more Xx
For months now illusions have been shattering and evaporating leaving us all feel a little shaky, lonely and needy at times.
Addictions have been presented to us, blown up in our face, and offered to us to clear if we so choose.
Greater clarity is arising when one does the work and takes responsibility for themselves and their current situation. There are more gifts than hardships, watch where the focus goes.
If it is on a hardship, you can choose to become softer, more allowing, forgiving, easier, loving. If there is someone you don't like, either focus on the light wihtin them or if that feels too much, swap them for another person who makes you feel good. each time you think switch to the person you love and see what happens. At Standing Rock the Native Americans are praying for those who oppose them. They are praying for the police, security forces, big corporations, oil companies and banks. They are praying for their families , for their hearts, that they may come back home to love, understanding and truth. As I turn my focus to love to be with all at Standing Rock, I also look to pray for and love those I have found cruel, abusive, hurtful and mean. The world is changing.
For I openheartedness is the way, not because it makes me soft and hippyish(!) but because it is the heart, and it is from the heart that the soul impulses through the body. Life is mostly an illusion guided by our personal desires for sex, food tobacco, coffee, alcohol, public notice, sugar, drugs of all sorts, power and so on. The fifth dimension is where we have graduated addiction and aversion and are becoming present in the body in love. Many come and go from this space. It is a higher level of existence. It’s like a whole new level on a computer game you never previously knew existed.
The thing that I notice in myself and others is while discipline requires consistency it also gives consistency to this space and experience. Some people have no problem eating a chocolate biscuit or smoking a joint and feeling it, but what then? Stay with addictions as long as you wish but bring in some form of daily practise too. Eventually the addiction will become uninteresting and wash itself away like a car wash self washing you wont even need to press a button. You might find yourself in the company of someone with the same addiction as you and you get to see it as not that pretty or you just decide and realise one day, this isn’t me. It's not what it is, it is the addiction to it. Step by step….
There is nothing wrong with doing/ being anything if it works for you but it stops being, recognise it. Then one might worry what is left? Please don’t let it be just a boring life! Maybe one of the greatest fears.
This is where the heart space and inner light become the centre point. What if we make this our motivation, where will we go, what will happen? Is it possible that once one stops running away from things and lets go of addictions, that there is something incredibly more interesting and enjoyable to discover? Yes.
So then, what do we do when a moment arises, where we feel pulled in some way or uncomfortable being authentic!? Dying to the moment is a favourite. If something arises where I feel uncomfortable, I choose to die to the moment, basically letting go of it and all my self-importance with it. It's like clearing the ego and seeing what is left. Quite refreshing actually! It's one of the most calming things to do and brings me back into the heart space and out of some story that is brewing. Everytime I die to the moment I feel more alive in a more enjoyable way!
This is where we are at now and it is a choice. I choose…….. your words your way this is your freedom and your power. Use it consciously and joyfully.
Daily practise be it meditation, walking, eating well or a combination of all helps provide a greater stability through these somewhat challenging times. I’m an advocate of daily meditation. I meditate every morning and night, first thing I do before I get out of bed, and last thing before I sleep; I sit up back straight cross legged and breathe for as long as is needed. If you have never done this, I implore you to experiment and start today! 3 breaths is enough to begin, then when you are ready expand it out longer, 5 minutes, 10 minutes- can change your life. What happens? Deep peace. Peace becomes one’s default state, sleep improves, calmness increases and things become clearer. Of course there can still be a challenging day, sometimes the best to do is go to bed! Even when it’s a challenge though you’ll be in a whole difference ball game and get yourself back together quicker and with greater ease. This is building true strength.
For those who have laboured on their journey of consciousness great gifts are being bestowed. Indeed great gifts are being bestowed on all, it’s just easier for the calm person to see, experience and enjoy them.
Let today be the day that we take 3 breaths for ourselves, for our families, and for all at standing rock. For all everywhere. We are united, we are One and everything everyone does affects the whole. Your 3 breaths today will move things into more peace for all. Isn’t that worth it!?
Feeling the call to investigate this further? I have workshops, healings sessions and retreats running regularly both online and in person. It’s time to take responsibility for how we feel, think and act. This responsibility is not heavy, it is a gift, the greatest gift and we have it for ourselves and each other.
I remember hearing Alicia Keys talking about being asked, ‘Why are we here?’ She pondered it and wrote a song about it with her answer being, ‘We are here for each other.’ Xx

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 :)
Being going through a rough spell!?
Sometimes this happens. The journey has many aspects to it, up hill, down hill, rough terrain, sunny days and so on... after all it is a journey :)
Simply have to go through this time/this scenery, but how we respond to it is totally up to us.
It may feel rough sometimes but instead of complaining and screaming (because you can -and often people think that because they can that they should!) you can choose to allow love to move through you.
Easier said than done I know but it starts with choice. You can choose how to respond to the rough terrain of your journey. Remember that it is temporary, that it will pass and that everything is actually okay. I choose to approach this moment through love or harmony or humour or...! I dare myself to turn a challenge on it's head and be in gratitude!
If resistance arises I know my ego is being triggered! There is an attachment to a story that my mind is projecting onto present day situations. Life is always here to help us.
This can happen to us all. It is interesting to recognise it in the moment, and ask what is this story, when is the first time in my life this type of story arose? How can I handle this differently?...
Breathing calmly for one minute as often as you remember works wonders too...
Strangely enough no matter what the story, if I can break it down to this very moment I realise that in this very moment everything is actually okay.
It is not about avoiding the crisis(rough terrain), it's more about learning to navigate through it. This makes ALL the difference. Meditation, healing and any activities that help us feel good support this while also imbuing us with good energy on a daily basis. This is where 's where a daily practice of prayer/ exercise/ meditation/ the soul's goals can work wonders!
So whether the terrain is easy or challenging I invite you to get into some form of daily practice, even if it is 5 minutes of breathing calmly while sitting on your bed before you get up.
The new Earth is here. The terrain can be rough at times, but it does get easier and can be really enjoyable! There is love everywhere and we are supported by life.
Get yourself into a daily practice it will make you feel great about yourself! And if it gets really rough call in a healer/ therapist/ friend- sure that's why we are here!
Everyone passes through rough terrain at various points but one can learn to recognise it, not get sucked into the drama of it and respond from a place of ease and knowing that everything is temporary and that life is actually helping them somehow. Here's to surrender, to seeing the gift in all situations, and to compassion for each other.
We are not alone, we are all One and here to serve each other xXx
And as my Yogi tea Bag says this morning, the art of happiness is to serve all <3
