September 2018 Intentions and Affirmations

Intentions help focus us in the right direction and affirmations help remind us of whom we choose to be.  IrelandsEyeSept2018
We may or may not feel in alignment with the chosen state, however repeating it and focusing upon it regularly will connect us more powerfully with that reality.
When it comes to intentions, it does not matter what you current reality is, all that matters is what you desire your reality to be. What excites you? Turns you on? Makes you go, ‘Yes please!?’ Below are some from some clients over the past month. As different as we may look to each other, our intentions are often quite similar!
You have so much power and are always creating in your life. Using intentions and affirmations will help you develop a life of your choosing. Read through these intentions and see if any resonate. Feel how your body responds to each one. When the body feels good, it usually means you resonate with it. Copy and paste or write out 1 – 9 of your favourites. Feel free to edit them, or add your own. Read morning and night. Ask yourself each morning while still in bed, ‘What is my intention today?’ It can be from the list or something completely different. Write it out. Remember it throughout the day, alter your behaviour to help it actualise, and meditate upon how it would feel to be totally true for you. May they help inspire and bring out the best in you!

To experience?

To be?

Devotional Service

What is your number 1 thought on a daily basis?

Does it change day on day, week on week or can you identify one main concern/ dominant thought/ feeling that you’ve had a while?

What you feel and think affects your reality, the environment around you and the people close to you. Your dominant thought affects how you feel, influences your perspective of the world and even more interestingly draws your future to you!

Accepted and agreed within the field of quantum physics is that parallel realities co-exist, and that one moves between parallel realities usually completely unaware. If this is the case, which reality would you like to living in?

It was a major alarm bell moment when I first realised that I was affecting my reality with my thoughts and that I could alter my reality through choosing which thoughts to ignore and which to focus on.

In that moment, I released attachment to money, income, job, home etc. and chose to focus instead on a state of peace and happiness. At that time I had a good income etc. but not the peace and happiness so I reckoned that if I got that state of being right, then everything else would by default be good! 

4f50281b 095b 479a a60c 5f4d81dd1ea2

My relationship with peace and happiness has grown deeply since and I am grateful for this simple realisation that has dramatically changed my path over the past 15 years. 

More recently this year of 2018, the focus has further evolved. It was triggered by a workshop I was developing called, Invite a Miracle In!

In the run up to the workshop, one had to list the top 10 miracles they would like to invite into their life, and then sit with this list for a week editing it as more clarity arose. 

I edited my list a few times and realised clearly over a few days that the one thing more than anything I was inviting in, was Bhakti Yoga consciousness 24/7!

This translates as devotional service, which for I means, being aware of the divine as I go through my day. This my number 1 relationship and focus, the feeling of which flows into everything I think, say and do. The visual I get is seeing the Divine as the top of the triangle, top of the pyramid, the light of which permeates all and after and from this, the energy flows through everything.

The great gift. 

Is to remember the Divine as Number 1 rather than any person, place or thing and that remembering the divine gives stability and strength to life regardless of circumstances. Everything is the material word including people and things will come and go and thus can cause suffering!  It is recognised that putting a person on a pedestal or overly focusing on a job or other material possession will deliver suffereing!  

This is written about in many spiritual texts that all things in the material world, people, places, things are temporary and will come and go.  In the Bible it says, 

‘Unless the Lord built it, they labour in vain that build it.’

Buddha reminds us also that,  

‘Attachment is the cause of all suffering.’

Attachment to anything other than the creator/ goods energy leads to distress, as everything is temporary and will naturally come and go. 

In the Bhagvad Gita, Krishna tells us that to remain peaceful regardless of what we consider good or bad happening in our lives is a most wise and elevated state, and a way to do this is to focus upon devotional service to Krishna or what some might like to call God, Source, Creator, Krishna, Great Mother, love or life.  

To focus on the divine gives a most uplifting feeling that brings one into the now where nothing needs to change. In this state we are inspired and guided moment by moment. The feeling also relates to the feeling of Delight which we work with in the Soul’s Goals; both a high frequency bridge to the divine. A welcomed break from the monotony of worry and fear (!) and a step into trust, and oneness with the great creator. 

To focus on the divine and devotional service 24/7 may not be as easy as clicking our fingers but it does start with awareness, feeling into it and choice and we all have that power right here right now.  I’m interested in finding out if this is something that interests you? How does it feel? 

Going forward

I may not remember 24/7! However I am enjoying the ease, grace, peace and at times fearlessness that this is bringing.. Some day I may be thoughtless! But for now I am young, and happy with the dominant thought ‘devotional service’ and what it inspires! 

To finish up, I would simply encourage 1 thing here; write down your top 10 miracles /wishes that you would like to experience and give it a week to 10 days and see then what is number 1.  If this feels delightful, of purpose to this world and resonates with your heart, write it down somewhere and look at it regularly. You might just grow that direction! You are a purposeful co-creator.

Love, peace, laughter, hugs and devotional service consciusness brothers and sisters!

Xx

At the end of January 2018, my father, following a number of years of ill health departed his body. He received great care and passed peacefully with his family at his side. My dad was a gentleman and tried to stand for something good in this world. One of the beautiful things about his passing is that the illness and whatever shortcomings I had imagined, faded, and all that is left is his light. 

Even though I consider myself fairly grounded and peaceful I was still affected by this and one week after the funeral I took grief on a plane with me and journeyed to India for 5 weeks. The focus of the trip was meditating and praying, while journeying through chanting in Mayapur, dancing in Goa and yoga and Ayurvedic treatments in Kerala. Sure why not!?

The plan:

2 Days Goa – some sun and dancing – begin to unwind

1 week Mayapur at World Krtian Gathering at ISKON temple. Panchat Tatva Mayapur

Few days Calcutta

3 Days Quiet at Little Cola beach, Goa

5 Days Chapada, Goa, dancing

2 Weeks Varkala – Sun, sea, yoga, ayurvedic massage, treatments and more.

The frist few days dissappeared in now what feels like seconds! Then I found myself in Mayapur, where we had the fortune of staying right by the Ganges and watching her flow morning and night amid people bathing, washing sari’s, boats transporting goods and children playing. To the core of kirtan in Mayapur, West Bengal, home of Lord Caitanya and Lord Nityananda and the Panchat Tatva I wandered. I got to cry, ponder, meditate and dance with devotees and deities. One of the highlights of the trip, was placing red roses in Ganges for my father and what followed, where a monk sitting on the bank annointed my forehead. Although unplanned I felt instantaneously that this was the purpose for the entire trip. In that moment I felt my father's spirit in the heart of the great mother and father. I could let go a bit more. He was in a good place and I chanted and gave thanks.  Orla Ganges Roses

At Goa I enjoyed quietness and integration time on a paradise beach before travelling to the heart of psychedelic trance! Anyone who knows me, knows that I love to dance. Meditation Dance has long been a love! Through breath awarenss one's inner vision opens up. All sorts of visions come, such as the energy system opening up, clearing, DNA spiralling, connecting to the trees and the stars, flowing sacred geometry, light beings! So much fun and makes me feel alert and clear for days after too. I've got to do more of this in Ireland!

In Varkala, Kerala I sat bathed in the light of the divine. Integration and rest.  Can not describe the grace I received. It felt like pure generosity and kindness from the creator. The food was amazing, in fact it was amazing everywhere, the yoga empowering, the atmosphere clear, the treatments divine and the overall experience just wow! I believe I began to experience here, a deeper awareness that is occuring to many people throughout the planet at this time.

The journey had many aspects to it. Here is some of what I experienced. It is what it is. It is long, I warn you! May find something in this to enjoy. There's more too, that I don't mention, but sure enough is enough as my mother would say :) There is a beautiful song I love at the end.  

  • Trance dance/ meditation dance is good for me. With it, I’m more alert, in tune and happy!
  • When I am irritated with someone, be it anger or anything that sparks a conversation in the mind about another, rather than go into the story about someone or myself, instead I choose to pause, breathe, chant a mantra if it helps, and visualise white light everywhere in the present moment. This clears the trigger and lets it slide like water off a ducks back. BE HERE NOW is the way. Dancing time
  • This returns my awareness to ‘I am that I am’. Feeling negative is destructive. Thoughts are distractions! I see a thought or issue but choose not to go with it and see what happens. Instead I choose to be here in the present moment seeing more light, feeling peaceful and warm. Sometimes I just laugh at it all including myself and take 3 breaths! It all helps. It all works!
  • Being authentic is everything. In us and those we meet. When we are, we get to see who we really are, the good, bad and ugly! And it’s all okay! If we have the pattern of anger or self-loathing etc we get to see it. Then we can recognise the pattern we are operating with, own it, acknowledge it as our karmic thought patterns and maybe even understand its cause if we wish. E.g. Krishna says that the cause of anger is expectations not being met. A devotee told me this at Mayapur when I had shared that I’d had a rage (against my travelling partner!) and was meditating on why I’d reacted so intensely! The rages had started when my father got quite ill and I could see I was off and acting out some wound/ pain body. This made total sense, it was exactly when my expectations weren’t met that I got fired up like a queen something :D. 
  • The day following my rage, I had a powerful return on karma! I got stuck in an intensely challenging place for a few hours over which I pondered my thoughts, words and actions of late. I pondered over the rage I had expressed the previous night and on a few occasions, 'Quick to anger,' I heard. I realised and acknowledged that quick to anger is not the way. I turned it around and vowed that I would from this moment on be, 'Slow to anger!' I repeated it many times over the following days. The intensity of the challenge helped focus and looking back it was a turning point. Although frustrations continued at moments, it all got much easier and more enjoyable, I felt more present and stronger and I didn't turn into a crazy hyeena again!  :) 

  • This awareness of expectations also helped me greatly. I recognised the expectation had snook up without my awareness! I chose to remember and let go of expectation. A healthy practise! That which happens, regardless of how it looks is for my higher good, and so I let go of expectation and go happily with whatever arises with ease. The focus shifts from others imperfections(!) to being happy and peaceful with oneself(!) I recognised the trigger would need to occur a few more times for me to fully shift the pattern from reacting unconsciously to being conscious and remaining in peace and ease. Things improved and I think it's sorted! We'll see! All good.

The Bodhisattva

Sitting under the tree

The bodhisattva and tree alight with the in breath and light everywhere fills the surroundings with the outbreath.

Each thought is an entity, an option spinning to the right or left side of the tree. That’s all they are, options to interact with or not, to be distracted by or not. Right now I choose not.

Best office view Ive had in a while  Recognising repeating thoughts as karmic patterns of thinking . Clearing my karma so it does not need to repeat! 

When I think something regularly it means I have an attachment to the thought. Seeing the thought clearly as an entity, I instead choose to not engage with it and be in the white light. Quite refreshing! I like this! Magically a more peaceful and present reality arises, which one might expect, but in addition, what might surprise one is the peace this brings into your future nows. Other worldly. 

I had the good fortune of meeting good people and encountering good beings along the path. I heard some wise words.

In Mayapur I danced watching Lord Caitanya and the PanchatTattva, slept next the Ganges every night and watched an older man sing to Krishna and Radharani. I saw and felt the flow of divine generosity. In Goa I met Krishna, Shiva, Parvati, Lakshmi, Vishnu and Kali. I came close to Parvati, Lakshmi and Kali who brought me on an adventure! Shiva appeared when I needed him and then I realised he is everywhere. In Varkala I learned more about Hanuman, who saves his devotees from the sea and inspires their friends. I experienced the wonderful mysterious limitless sun and the bodhisattva again. Hare Krishna! One night in Varklala I heard the inner self say, tomorrow I will wake up a new woman. The next morning I awoke and heard, ‘Today I am a new woman.’ And so it was and so it is!

The ego seeks to separate always… It can wreck havoc with a good relationship. To make the most of the moment we must continually bring ourselves back to oneness with the present moment and the other. Travelling with an ex-boyfriend is a really good practise for this! That's the price to really get on well and it's worth every penny!

My desire to recognise patterns of thought as attachments (i.e. thinking the same thought regularly!) and surrender this attachment was strong and encouraged deeper awareness throughout the trip.  SeaHorse View Sea

Indeed if I didn’t have these tools the trip could have been a serious challenge! But it wasn’t! Even though there were some tears and frustrations, I was after all dealing with grief and inner journeying, it was 1012%+ a truly Divine experience.

I wished to let go of any thoughts of my ex, and of my attachment to these thoughts.

I wished to surrender and let go so that if we ever did meet again or indeed I meet anyone again, I would no longer be experiencing reality through a pattern of karmic thoughts, but as a true and clear moment of being.  

Through this all I have learned to respect mirror, respect each and everyone I think of and meet, and respect myself. Everyone and everything has a soul and is to be respected.

A young guy from the Himalayas who worked a food stall in Goa wore a tee-shirt with Respect Mirror written on the back of it. My eyes were drawn to these words and I found myself meditating upon them for a few days.

Ganges cremationI realised that everyone was my mirror and especially whomever I was dealing with in any particular moment and that I would consciously respect them fully from now on. First I looked at my travelling partner, and applied it to him; I thought I respected everyone but realised with this, that I did not always respect him, nor at times, his words, ideas and actions! I think most people with a travelling companion or partner/ ex partner can relate to this!?

It is funny to say so now. But with this shift I felt so much better and more present. Judgement subsided and I could hold him in my vision and focus upon the present moment for longer. I softened. I understood and could feel that as a result, my physiology, mind and emotions were more stable and peaceful. Result! It was good for both of us, and great for my relationship with all.

I met an incredible presence of a being in Goa. She told she followed the path of Karma Yoga. I go forth with this feeling in my heart. She said, 'Everything I do, say and think is good, and therefore the opposite is also good!' Worth a ponder or two for sure! I’m still pondering!

Be with someone with a good heart and your world will transform.

I respect all I meet.  OmNamahShivaya

I respect mirror.

I am happy with myself and all I do, think and say. Amen.

I surrender all

Money, home, love, mission, purpose et al.

Thank you.

Be clear and see what arises.

Be here now is the motto.

I am in the field of unconditional love.

I recognise I am not the pain, heartbreak or sadness, I am the I am.

I am that I am.

Sometimes it’s important and right to fight.

I separates; No I unifies one with the present moment. 

As Sri RamaKrishna says, 'The highest ideal is eternal and entire self-abnegation, where there is no ‘I’, but all is ‘Thou.’'

Give yourself to the present moment because the present moment will give everything to you.

Accept presence

Be the present moment

We are here to die, set yourself up for a good departure!

Attachment takes us out of the now

Clear clear clear and be here now!

Lonely is just when we forget to feel god’s presence…

Every day u wake up is a new life

Every day you are a new person.

Give people options and you will live in abundance

I let go of judgment of others.

I let go of self-judgement too! Feels good! And life more fun! Sunset Varkala

We have the option to allow the present moment to be and act through us. The pain is just when we have a pattern that is out of harmony with what is being called for in the present moment.

I speak , sing and breathe with light in the face especially the nose and chin. Grin!

We are connected, One with sun.

Remember this connection always for strength greater than any ego!

The sun offers limitless strength and presence.

If I saw everything that happens and occurrs as coming from the sun, I’d be in a continuous place of appreciation for all!

Be free of thought so you are open to experiencing the limitless light flowing here.

The terrorists are everywhere but they are internal. They can only find you if you are negative in action, word or thought. Thinking negatively/ destructively will lose you the opportunity to be and bask in this light. Thinking anything slows one down and is a distraction. Sometimes I just acknowledge a thought as a little football size entity that is hovering to my right. I see it, don't engage and focus on the light which is everywhere and permeates all, and smile.

Being humble is a beautiful feeling and something worth practicing. quote be more humble than a blade of grass more tolerant than a tree always offering respect chaitanya mahaprabhu 61 80 70

There is a game going on. Beliefs create vibration and the reality follows.

Here, I am comfortable with myself.

Life is like a movie and everyone playing a role. What is your role? There are signs of your role, just look. What role would you like to play? Why? 

Write your movie, decide what character feels best to you in this movie. Change the story if you wish, and ask God to direct your movie through you! May we always remember that we are here to serve. There also doesn't need to be any story any longer if you rather. You get to decide.

To stay and be on this paradise earth we must realize that this is God’s planet. God is here emanating in everything. Can I see him/ her!? Yes I can! This awareness opens the experience of Paradise Earth. It is a wonderful worthy journey. The heart is good, and you will meet others with good hearts too, you could say god is alive in the hearts of all, or the hearts of all are aware of the divine in all. And this is where we are, and so it is. 

All in all I had an amazing trip. I bow in gratitude and service to the great creator, mother India and even my wonderful travelling companion! I am still processing my father's departure and that comes at moments and is blessed. I am peaceful with what is and wish him and all my family love and oneness. I especially wish him with his next journey lots of blessings. I am judging myself less and living each day at a time, loving nature and spending more time outdoors. I am not chasing connection but enjoying it so much when it arises. I mostly am in the now and still enjoying the inner beauty and light that was stimulated over these 5 weeks. I had a little anxiety before I left for this trip, but did it anyway. I am so glad. If you have a callling for a journey, may you go and may it serve you well. I am considering offering a retreat in Varkala India in the next year, so if this resonates for you, please get in contact. May everyone who wishes, get to enjoy long holidays!  <3 

Hare Krishna!

I had the beautiful pleasure of hearing and meeting the sweetly generous of heart and spirit Ilan Chester at Mayapur. My heart softened and expanded in love as I listened to his pure, gentle and generous kirtan. I knew nothing of him but his sweet sound and when days later I saw him walking the campus I jumped at the opportunity to say hi and find out something about this being! Turns out (not surprisingly!) he is a well recognised world artist. Above is Track 1 from his album Symphony of the Soul. Days later when I put it on for the first time while unable to seep in Calcutta, I wept. The whole album is a beautiful listen, may you too enjoy. <3 

Finally, finally, following this trip and the return to Ireland I have one thing to say and that is, 'Thank you.' Thank you to the great creator, thank you to India, thank you to Eiru, thank you family, thank you Dad, thank you light, thank you dear travelling companoin, thank you peace, grace and thank you love.

Letting Go

Ancients Sites and Adventure in the West of Ireland 

10 days ago I set sail (in my car!) on a trip of discovery. I let go of the ropes(handbrake!) and off we went...  IMG 3323

I have felt called for a while to visit the West of Ireland, some sacred sites and beautiful people.

I had the fortune of having a friend join me for the first few days as well as a friend to stay with in Cork and a couple of parties to attend plus the Cork Jazz festival. It was off to a good start! I had been working in a very focused manner for months and felt the call to shake things up a bit, refresh everything and have time to adventure, meditate and experience self-discovery in the West.

I love the people of the West, who tend to be a different flavour to those of the east of Ireland, whom I also love! Earthy, 

I purposefully didn’t plan too much so I could be open to what arose moment by moment.

By not knowing how each day would unfold, I remained open to all posibilities and had such a wonderful journey. Each day I was guided in where to stay (who to contact as I was fortunate enough to stay with beautiful people at every location). I didn’t know before 6pm most evenings where I would be staying that night, but it worked out so gracefully I am in awe and strengthened my already strong confidence in the on going moment by moment guidance.

A big theme was relationships- on all levels; with myself, friends, the Divine, life, ... ( or maybe this is actualy all the same thing!?) :) . Relating with others can bring me so much joy, and also can teach us a lot about ourselves. Over this trip I was able to observe myself, the feelings that arose. I could see more clearly where I was in resistance and at ease. I had the time and space to really be and feel with whatever arose and allow it to come through. 

IMG 3327 My heart opened further every time someone welcomed me. I got to have and listen to some good conversations with others and with myself!

Got to dance all night into the early morning with the lovely people of West Cork. I caught up with friends for tea and chats and each person I met, I saw them well and blossoming. What a gift.

Got lost in West Cork down back roads and laneways. It was like trying to get out of quick sand getting out of there, the delight I felt when I found lights on a road after hours of driving dark backroads, brought a tear to my eye. A friendly message being invited to stay at a friend’s place gave me immense energy and light when I was tried and feeling alone.

Enjoyed dusk alone on the 1st of November on the capstone of Carrowmore Dolmen and megalithic cemetery.

Wandered the land of Carokweel and sat in the energy of our ancient ancestors and star family.

Allowed myself to sit on the catstone at Uisneach and cry and laugh and ponder and wander.

Wandered through Kinsale and walked the beaches Salthill and Enniscrone. Visited the town of my grandmother, Ballina and felt such a kinship and love for the people there. 

My heart opened and softened. LETTING GO was the main theme of this trip. It started about one week before and now one week after it is still playing out. What a wonderful journey with the understanding of letting go evolving day on day. Letting go continues to deliver greater ease, gentleness and happiness to the present moment. I am grateful. I am space. May we all feel the ease, joy and expansion of letting go grace.

I will continue with this theme and see what further awaits :) IMG 3351

Now I am back to work. I feel ready, able and excited!

I am deeply grateful.

Letting Go

Here are some questions I have asked myself to gain insight. I thought I'd share a few questions here in case you'd also like to give it a go...

When you think about letting go what comes to mind?

Without thinking for more a second for each question I encourage you to name out loud whatever comes to mind. Write it out even for some powerful insights. Name out loud any of which come to mind in the following:

Can you name 3 things you would like to let go of?

1.

2.

3.

How would you like look and feel if you did?

If you are to bring ‘letting go,’ right into this present moment into how you hold yourself and are, how would that change you? Would you do something different to what you are doing? Would you feel different? Can you imagine this now and feel your face and body relax?

Are there any pains you would like to let go of?  IMG 3345

Any resistance in your life you’d welcome letting go of?

How about any goals you’d like to release and let go of?

People!?

Projects?

Places?

Identity?

After much journeying I have rememberd that it is the idea I have of these things in my imagination that I am Letting Go of... and that is what it is all about. Anything I don't like? I let go of my idea of it! Any practise I don't like, I let go of my idea of it...and that opens up the now.

The idea of myself. I let go of that too!

The idea of this moment! I even let go of that as well!

This moment is a lot more full of potential now.

Open, here and willing to be with that which arises. Quite fantastic and fascinating really!

So grateful. Breathe in and breathe out. Here we are. 

Love and peace to your heart and life dear fellow traveller.

Poem recapturing some moments of this trip!  

Work late get it all done pay the debts thank the car doctor pay respects and get going when time is right
There is no rush, there is no fight.
Hush when you arrive you’ll see in every ones’ eye no need to rush nor hush

Cork Dork better than ever. Colour and sound, patience was found.West cork quick sand don’t cry nor get high. Fly with the room, plenty shroom for all, allow be, nice to look low, feel the flow, slow slow slow. Gifts come when feeling one.

Galway
Rest the best, gentler than the rest
Gentle touch in all the right places, for my eyes, soul and senses. Surrender is nature and tenderness embraces
No race is the key
Work is successful, stomach in activate the chin.
I love being here.

Carrowmore- off the floor. Ancestors are reawakening smiling happy with what they see- we are expanding light, many already free.

Ballina Rivers flow
Moy toy coy
Kindness ahoy

Carrowkeel I kneel, feel, inspired, raised up higher and released
Star family, Sirius, ancient ancestors, all are us.
Letting go, go slow, I breathe the flow!

Uisneach feel all, go slow, cry it’s ok not to be high.
Love knows the flow.

Sometimes someone turns up sometimes they disappear- lt becomes clear
Life’s plan appears when things are let loose to be
FREE
Feeling the space moment by moment I am arising here seeing more ever more clear. NO Fear.
I've let go
Letting go
I am the space

Retreating, Integrating and Expanding

Two weeks ago I had a the pleasure of attending a retreat in Denmark on a little island off the south of Sweden called Bornholm.  

Alter

It was a beautiful gathering of like-minded women from Scandinavia, Switzerland, Spain, New Zealand and the Netherlands. I knew only one of the women and so had the wonderful opportunity to meet many new sisters.

Out of time into the now, it is the only place to be. When we are with like-minded people it is all so natural and easy. The quest then is to take the insights and state of expansion home into our own community and workplace.

We meditated, we sang, we prayed, shared where we are at with our work and families. We listened to each other, we walked in the forest, held ceremony, looked deep into each others light being. We grew. We swam, enjoyed sauna, and we danced.

Out of time into the now we danced,

Out of time into the now I am.

My personal quest was placed with the divine. I had a prayer and let it go.

Some other sisters I met were working with the same theme. We were in a deep space and welcoming that. We were open to see what we were ready to experience and integrate. I had the opportunity of connecting more deeply with some sisters through the healing treatments. I felt and saw great things and we all grew in light and harmony. Thank you to Britta for organising, all the sisters who attended and those special sisters I had the joy to early morning meditate with, swim and sauna with and share healing with. Amen and Hallelujah! This is what the tv news does not report, people from all over the planet, all walks of life and all ages doing the work to clear trauma, ancestral issues and challenges so they can stand in their family, community and work as peaceful beings of love of light, in touch with their authentic voice and the higher self and be of service for the higher good of all.

October is a great time to Cleanse

Cleanse time again!

Have you been considering a cleanse?   Tree Howth hill

It is October and time for me to return to one of my favourite practices- cleansing! Twice a year I cleanse to boost my entire wellbeing. It involves taking special herbs as well following as a special diet. The basis of this is removing sugar, honey, fruit, wheat, dairy(cow), white rice, caffeine, potatoes, fresh mushrooms and yeast, as these things bring down the immune system and feed parasites. It is natural for us to be host to a whole load of bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites, both health enriching and depleting. The whole approach of taking herbs and following the special food guidelines; cleanses out the bad boys, boosts the good ones and gives the whole body and mind good energy and greatly supports general health and wellbieng.

So what can you eat!? Well, plenty! Consider, avocado on spelt bread, hummus, olives, cucumber and spinach on ryvita, roasted sweet potatoes with fresh salad and chickpea burgers, porridge, raw almonds, falafel and so much more, as well as eggs, chicken, meant, and fish if you so like. 

Click here for more on the foods you can eat while on the cleanse!

Why cleanse!?

A cleanse clears many bugs and parasites boosting the immune system and general health. Parasites are linked to many autoimmune system health issues as well as skin issues, digestive issues and especially tiredness. People can lose 80 % of their energy to these pesty invaders!

Imagine going from living off 20% of your energy to 100%- thats 5 times more energy. Can you imagine!? How much easier it would be to get out of bed, go for a run/ walk, smile going to work, enjoy time with the kids?…

Each time I cleanse, I sleep about an hour less and after 2-3 weeks have much more energy. It also clears the body from reliance on refined sugars and caffeine for energy and resets the whole energy system as well as gives one’s digestive system, skin and energy a beautiful healthy boost. You'll find this is an emtional cleanse as well as a physical, mental and spiritual clearing.

CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE!

Interested in finding out more?  

The first time I cleansed was for over 2 years and then twice yearly thereafter for well over 10 years. It has always occurred too that when I cleanse, something not so nice leaves my life and something lovely enters ! This I put down to the increase in vibration and wellbeing that occurs from this practice. A cleanse takes at least 3 weeks and it is recommended one usually cleanse for 3 -6 weeks, though if one has health issues, it be for longer such as 3 -6 months. Each person is unique as is their healing.

You can purchase a cleanse from this website and if you request it we will also send you via email a list of foods and meal ideas that you can enjoy on the cleanse. 

Good luck! May the clease bring out the best in you!

Eclipse central!

There have been immense changes taking place over the past 8 weeks energetcially.

Look back, can you see somet themes and insights?

See if you can name 3?

1.

2.

3.

Name them and bank them so you don't need to repeat those learnings again!

Mine include and revolve mostly around stepping up my awareness and choice in being of service.

Of service to the cosmic heart, the same light  life force that exists in teh heart of all being. Serving this light expanded my awareness into greater clarity and love. Aum.

This journey into serving God, and I am sorry to say that word because it can be so misconstrued but I am using it because I do believe there is a kind force of light in this universe that connects, harmonises and holds everything and that we as beings have this energy as our centre and are love. As we come home to ourselves we come home to love, and to this light. It feels easy, peaceful, expansive, safe and even joyous regularly enough! It 's NOT something to be chased but that just arises with greater clarity as we take responsibilty for ourselves and pursue our path of service, whatever that is and however that looks for each individual. 

WE have great scope at present to jump. There is a mgic bridge being built over this eclipse and it's not about listing off your wants incuding that red lambourgini, but rahter just being in your centre and present in your environment and home. See what links are offered to you. There is great scope when we WORK TOGETHER. WE help each other and achieve even greater outcomes this way. See where TEAM comes up for you, where you say hey, et's do this togeehr and see what happens... feel open and allow yourself to offer and put ideas out there with those around you. Orla Tara

I heard a lovely idea being shared yesterday, that when Krishna whose birthday was on Wednesday just gone, when as a child he defeated many demons. They say now that we do not have many demons but rather the demon mentality (greed, abuse etc) that poeple are clearing... but anyway when he did kill them, a demigod usually came out of the demon that had gotten lost/ confused/ chosen badly at some stage and thorugh killing the demon the demi god got liberated and could go back to teh light and love! This makes me smile, just think of anyone who irritaes you etc and imagine there is a beautiful being in there being liberated (and of course relates to us and any behaviours/ etc we may have!) ;) 

The divine power is awakening in us and uniting us for the greater good, and it's a really cool trip.  

You probbly already have and I encourage you (myself included!) to step up our practices be it praying, reading inspiring words, meditation, yoga, making food for others, being a mum, breathing, being in nature... 

Today am sending love to all beings on this planet and beyond. Shall we do this together?

Us and them is disolving into the sacred light in all beings.

In service & like you, made of Love,

Orla
