A CLEANSE is a GREAT WAY to raise your game. I'm a big believer in cleansing and am delighted to be sharing the next cleanse on line. Along with Anneliese Keugler in NZ we'll be holding a 4 week cleanse support programme open to all! I recommend 3 weeks to make a great change, but even 10 days is very powerful and even 3 days better than none! So wherever you are at, we invite you this April to join us. We'll have daily updates, live streams, support and info.
STARTING APRIL 1st The Game Changer - Transformational Cleanse is coming to you.
I'd also like to take this oporutnity to say, Happy day of the equinox to you!
Change is in the air. What is it that you are seeking to birth in your life? What aspect of yourself would you like to see transformed?
Today is the perfect day for writing this out, being clear and stepping up to the next opportunity which presents itself.
Equinox in Ireland occurs at 9.58pm this evening. I am embracing change through waking up earlier and and looking forward to and preparing for a proper cleanse in April!
Would love to hear what you are focusing upon.
Check out my fb page for more wellbeing tips and sharings, thank you, and lots of love, Orla
A new year and new beginnings….
On New years eve of 2019, my path took a slight but unexpected turn.
I find it interesting that if I am walking a certain direction and change that direction even slightly, I end up on a very different route and in a very different place.
At the time, I could have got angry or cried, but instead my awareness turned inwards, and I saw and felt a light in my heart. I realised I was fine, this was right and accepted it. With it a gracious and more present awareness flowed through I and into this being...
The inner good vibes and my guidance felt, thanks be to God, clear, excited and inspired. That’s only been 4 weeks ago and it’s been a wonderful trip! Some direction was given to me, which I acted upon, opening up new avenues and possibilities.
All is well.
2019 is a healthy and positive year for many with healthy new beginnings being offered, I included. May you see yours and if something is taken away, allow it graciously to go, for something more appropriate is no doubt on the way.
Buddha reminds us that the cause of all suffering is attachment; attachment to people, things, and ideas etc., so let’s all just let it go!
The Bhagvad Gita reminds us that kindness is key even to our enemies (if you have any). Just feel into that! Also, to see living and work as devotional service, and to work without attachment to results.
Such wisdom and truth makes my heart sing.
When we pull away from one flow of energy that is not serving us, a surprising amount of energy can be released to flow in other areas. Just like when you make a change, meet a fear, it positively ripples into all of your life and not just that one area.
I’ve just come back from a wonderful kirtan retreat in Belgium. I feel a sense of the divine feminine, space for the sacred masuline and ease growing in my awareness. It was a blessed journey with 14 hours chanting each day which enabled a deeper journey to occur. I was gifted many times over, saw my guides arrive in mid chanting over many hours and got to sit with and observe insights move through my consciousness, such as, ‘everything is neutral,’ and ‘clearness’, as well as coming full circle into a deeper awareness of and presence in the here and now. I am so grateful for the Divine.
Every step we take, 10 steps are taken towards us.
TRUST was the word given to me for January.
In Krishna I trust.
In living I trust.
In my inner guidance I trust.
In moving into my edges and more into presence I trust.
Thank you TRUST.

'Thank you for a most wonderful and enlightening day.
Call it synchronicity but I have been learning and teaching The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People since 1992, just short of 25 years and still learning from the 72 minute CD. I never ventured into the 7th habit "Sharpen the Saw" until the start of January. It is about looking after self body, mind and spirit... Definitely synchronicity. The time out to think and question with six people who actually have common and specific areas to address is Synergy in action (6th Habit). Thank You for bringing "Acceptance" which is the start and I do believe when you start the finish will come, as night follows day.Yours Sincerely' P.T.

A bit about Orla:
Hi, I entered the world of meditation, energy healing, wellbeing and facilitating workshops in 2003. The Soul's Goals was created as a way to tune into inner guidance and live each day with greater satisfaction and fuilfillemt. It has become the model I continue to live happier moer fulfilling days by for over seven years and it is my delight to share this approach with you.
'Orla is so talented in so many aspects of her life and in particular to helping you find you true soul's goal. I have done various souls courses with Orla and always found them brilliant. I myself was trying to find my calling in my career path and with the help of Soul's Goals I found my true north. I can't put into words how much that has meant to me and I am so grateful for Orla and her Soul's Goals course for helping me find it. If you want to change life into the right direction, well the Soul's Goals is it.' C.S
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!
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?
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!
For inner calm, peace, stability and feeling well! Recorded on this day of the blood moon 27 July 2018 and lunar eclipse to help us align with the light and gifts of this time.
Hi Friends, this is a summary or the video as it was too long to upload! The 'Thank you for the Blessing' part starts at about 3 minutes 50 seconds in- jump straight in if you wish, the pre is a warm up with some gentle breathing.
The energies can be considered quite intense right now. Breathing calmly, deeply and giving thanks is more than powerful enough way to align with the blessings and expanding light that is being offered. Stay well friends and thank you for watching! This may not be for everyone but it works for me! May you enjoy too! Please subscribe!

Food Guidelines and Suggestions for Dr Hulda Clark’s Parasite Cleanse
Welcome to this page!
As a seasoned and passionate cleanser, I love the results of cleasning and am delighted to share with you this information. This was taught to I from my teacher, Merv, in New Zealand, where I first started cleansing 15 years ago. This journey made such an impact and improvement to my wellbeing, that I decided to leave my wellpaying business role and retrain in natural health and work for Merv! I wanted to learn about it so I could share the good news and possibility of transformation with others. Depression, anxiety, lack of focus, tiredness, poor immune health, digestive issues, skin issues, poor sleep and waking up groggy are just some of the elements that a cleanse addresses. I encourage everyone to cleanse at least once a year no matter what's going on. It raises you physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually to a whole other level.
During this time, I have witnessed proboably close to 1000 cleanses. The information shared here is based on Dr Hulda Clark's protocol and what I was taught, experimented with, researched, observed with clients abd personally experienced. It is a simple enough approach; remove foods that feed parasites, take herbs to kill them off, and support products to elminate them from body, alkalise blood, boost energy and regenerate liver and healing. You can purchases a cleanse from this site, link below, and I also have a facebook support group and also a number of Youtube videos. I offer in person and Skype sessions as well as healing sessions, should you like some personal support with your journey.
May you enjoy the upgrade!
Recommend dietary changes:
- Eliminate sugar, honey
- Eliminate fruit
- Eliminate wheat
- Eliminate Dairy (cow products - or all I now utilise a vegan based diet while cleansing)
- Eliminate coffee/ caffeine
- Eliminate vinegar (expcet for applie cider vinegar) and yeast (includes some breads, balsamic vinegar, pickled foods)
- Eliminate white potatoes and white rice
The above foods feed parasites- so during the cleanse you are ridding them from your body by:
- Starving them by not feeding them
- Taking herbs to eliminate and cleanse them from the body.
What can you eat!?
Here’s a general list of foods that are great for you and that you can eat plentifully during the cleanse.
Go organic as much as possible for greater nutrition and purity.
Any gluten free/sugar free/dairy free bread!
Spelt bread is great.
You can buy ready made at markets/ supermarkets (aldi/tesco/superquinn...) and bake your own which you can buy in a pack at the gluten free/special dietary section of the supermarket- if you are baking your own- you can try soy milk instead of dairy. Baking my own and Soul Bakery available in some Super Values are my favourites.
Any lactose free unsweetened milk - Soy/ Almond/Hemp/ Rice milk… Use this time to try all different types of milk laternatives. Also it is easy to make your own. Make sure no added sugar or sweetener!
Stevia - buy online or from health store: This is a green leafy herb that is sweeter than sugar. It has not the same mass as sugar- which means it won’t create the same effect when baking, however, you can add it into sauces or whatever you are cooking/baking for a sweeter effect. A little goes along way- it is sweeter than sugar. It is actually good for your pancreas and doesn’t affect your blood sugar levels or feed parasites like sugar does. I do not reccomend usig much of this, but a little Stevia here and there is fine.
Herbals teas are great- green tea or mate for energy, chamomile for relaxing your digestive system and sleeping, mint for digestion, nettle for cleansing, acidic blood and painful joints. Try plenty of teas through this cleanse as they help you feel well and it’s a good time to experiment with new things.
Cheese and dairy
Instead of cow based dairy products, try going dairy free and for a vegan diet. Vegan chesses are great and surprisingly delicious! Choose organic goat products if you must, for example some goats cheese.
Meat, poulty, fish etc.
Stay away from meat completely if you can. However, I have seen many people who eat meat succeed and have a successful cleanse, so if you feel you must or that it will greatly help that is okay too. Some people may get great strength from roast chicken and salad etc. and that is okay. There is flexibility here. Here are general guidelines:
Stay away from all processed meats.
Do not eat any raw meat or fish- this is how certain parasites can enter the body.
Stick to good quality properly cooked meats, fish, chicken...
You can eat eggs if you wish on the cleanse, again go organic.
Porridge- Oats are fine, mix with non dairy milk, stevia if you like to sweeten, cinnamon
and chai spices add delicious flavour.
I love brown rice instead of oats too. It's worth cooking a decent amount of brown rice and then using in a few different meals over a few days. It is also great served cold with salad! SEE VIDEO BELOW- it may not look great but it is warming, nurturing, comforting and satisfying!
Eggs: Boiled, poached, scrambled with spelt toast.
Avocados - on spelt toast with a sprinkle of salt
Tomatoes/ cucumber, lettuce, hummus - on spelt toast with a sprinkle of salt
Try a salad at any time of say- also fantastic for breakfast - and gives the body great morning energy- that can be seen in your glow and skin.
Choose a combination of any salad foods including the above and
All green leaves
All salad food-
Grated raw carrot and raw beetroot with lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper.
Red and green peppers, slightly steamed broccoli, mixed with hummus and toasted hazelnuts.
Salad Nicoise- Lettuce leaves, olives, soft boiled eggs, flakes of hard goats cheese/ vegan cheese.
Chicken/prawn Caesar Salad. Green leaves, flakes of hard goats cheese, olive oil combined with some bbq/grilled.... prawns/ chicken/ meat.
Warm grilled Goats cheese salad- Salad leaves with some beetroot, almonds and warm grilled goats cheese..
Roasted vegetables on a bed of salad with any of the above ingredients.
Courgette, goats cheese and basil Frittata- Use some garlic when frying courgette and then remove- serve with salad.
Vegetarian Curry; put in some roasted veg or lightly chop up and cook- cauliflower, sweet potatoe, tomatoe, spinach, chickpeas… Add curry spices, coconut oil, fry together, add plenty of coconut cream and spinach for last few minutes. Serve with brown rice.
Delicious Dahl: A very important dish if you are vegetarian or vegan while on this cleanse. I once read that George Harrision said that being vegetarian is easy once you have dahl every day! I have to agree with this, it makes a big difference to my general strength and wellbeing! I like to add a few different types of lentils together, cook in veg bullion for 40 mins, light steam cauliflower for a few minutes, add curry spices, turmeric, pepper, florets of cauliflower, add either chopped tomatoes or cherry tomatoes, and in last 5 minutes organic coconut cream, and spinach. Wonderful served with brown rice or quinoa and with salad. Try some fresh lime juice on top! Delicious!
Any form of stirfry with brown rice is wonderful ,add tofu, ginger, lemon…
Quinoa cooked and then put into dish and into over with cherry tomatoes and either vegan or goats cheese served with salad.
Brown spelt spaghetti with tomatoe sauce with caluiflowers, coconut cream, veg builllion and spinach!
Brown Rice - instead of white rice
Sweet potatoes roasted in oven - instead of regular potatoes (release sugar more slowly in body)
Try quinoa- its’ a south american grain instead of rice or as another option, it’s really nice, slightly nutty like yourself and has protein in it which is great for giving you energy- can have it with stir fry or cold with salad
Check out also amaranth and buckwheat as great options to work with.
All vegetables (not too much corn or carrots as can be sweet- but a bit is fine)
Make/bake bread/ scones pizza bases etc- (Use spelt or look up gluten free, dairy free, sugar free recipes online- there are loads and try some out).
Meat/ chicken/ fish all fine- bbq or cook how you like and eat with salad/ veg/ sweet potatoes/ brown rice/ brown rice pasta...
Raw nuts might become one of your close friends;- Almonds, hazelnuts. Ideally go organic. Stay away from any old tasting nuts as they are moldy and toxic to the body!
Soak almonds overnight and take off skin the next day. Nutritional content, digestibility and satisfaction increase greatly with this. The skin on almonds is also said to be toxic, so really remove where possible!
Ryvita crackers, avocado...
Any crackers that are wheat free, sugar free and dairy free..
Almond butter- delicious.
Try Ryvita crackers with almond butter / salad/ hummus as a handy snack.
Buckwheat pancakes with savoury fillings, with fresh salad, followed buckwheat pancakes with cashew butter and cocnut cream! Delish!!
Sugar cravings and morning tonic!
Have 15 mls of apple cider vinegar in hot or cold water as a tonic each morning. Ideally start off your dad with 1 litre of warm water at least 1 hour prior to eating breakfast. Also great with lemon juice.
This also helps to sort out sugar cravings and cleanse the body.
Add cinnamon- 2 teaspoons a day to something you are eating if you like or take directly- this reduces sugar cravings massively and is good for you. Some people have even come out of Type two Diabetes by taking 1-2 teaspoon or 1-2 capsules of cinnamon a day, every day. 2 teaspoons of cinnamon in the morning are known to reduce afternoon sugar cravings.
Consider a liquid mineral supplment to reblance minerals in the body.
Organic Super greens 1 - 2 times a day, to cleanse, alkalise and energise body.
And why not add a few side dishes of...
Pray, meditate, affirm great health and enjoy! Whatever this moment is accept it. Act is as if you have chosen it. This acceptance brings peace and calm.
Try praying a prayer that makes you feel well or chanting silently, any mantra that works for you such as the Maha Mantra, ‘Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna, Hare Hare, Hare Rama, Hare Rama, Rama Rama, Hare Hare,’
Or repeating an affirmation such as, ‘ I feel great and I am happy with the choices I am making.’
All of these practices will increase the internal potency of light, give you extra strength to continue and bring you right into the here and now.
Om Shanti. Hare Krishna!
Lots of love to you on your journey
Fancy 21 days with no sugar, fruit, wheat, dairy, yeast, fresh mushrooms, white potatoes, white rice and honey!?
I did! Well mostly I fancied giving my body, mind and spirit some loving care and attention, a boost, and this is how we rolled :) I took the Dr Hulda Clark Parasite Cleanse along with a restricted diet. I usually do this twice a year and it never disappoints, rather it appoints you to an even better place! I had enough of ice cream and was excited to see what would happen. Below is a video taken on 12th June 2018- Day 13 of the cleanse.
Here is what I am eating! Plenty of fresh organic vegetables, especially spinach, avocados, cucumber, brown rice, vegan/ goats cheese, mungbean noodles, raw nuts and wonderful creative new recipes !
Supplements: Dr Hulda Clark protocol cleanse herbs, Wormwood, Cloves and Black Walnut Hull Tincture. Additional amino acids; Arginine during the day gives you 4 hours of extra energy, use in place of coffee/ sugar for an extra boost of physical energy whenever you need it. Also cleanses toxins from body. Ornithine at night time for great sleep, deep restoration and rejuvenation. Gets body to produce human growth hormone, cleanses the body of toxins from parasites and helps you sleep like a happy baby. What's not to love here!?
Thanks for watching!
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!?
2 Days Goa – some sun and dancing – begin to unwind
1 week Mayapur at World Krtian Gathering at ISKON temple.
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.
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.
- 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.
Move into Beauty Consciousness if you so wish, everything is here for you. Consciousness brings awareness.
Move into softening.
Move into self-love with each breath,
Slowing down, realising,
I am comfortable here.
Bringing each part of body into being comfortable here.
Move into unconditional love.
Looking each direction and feeling unconditional love with each,
Above and below, people and places.
So it is.
Move into the space and white light in which thoughts come and go.
I am here.
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.
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.
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.
I 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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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
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.
The big shift people are going through, some more than others is the shift from 3rd dimensional awareness to fifth dimensional awareness. One way we can describe fifth dimensional awareness is unconditional love. In 3rd dimensional awareness, there is good and bad, judgement, separation from others (I am different to them – head based thinking) and fear based thinking, It is the way we were raised but no longer the smartest way to manage one’s life and can be quite heavy and tiring.
There has been a shift in society and in ourselves. Where as head and fear based being used to be the dominant winning force, now heart based awareness is more powerful and wise.
If yo pare not tapping into and nurturing your heart space it's probably time to give this some thought! If you are, nice one, may you feel the stillness of the now and great energy and wisdom which moves through this portal.
In fifth dimensional awareness there is acceptance of all as is, neither good nor bad, simply mandalas and designs unfolding and usually quite beautifully. If a story doesn’t feel good it is simply not over and hasn’t come to completion yet. In the 5th D is the realisation of the wisdom of the heart centre and that all hearts are part of the one. We pause and listen within rather than react or speak from the patterned responses we’ve grown up familiar with (sometimes referred to as the monkey brain ☺ ).
This pause and turning within replaces the ego fly off the handle reaction, and or the strategy of trying to control or play victim, a survival tool, from our younger years which one’s awareness of now, means you have outgrown. The ego/head will release its desire for control/ manipulation, once it feels really loved. Love helps everything relax. You may expect love or even try and demand it from someone else but truly this self-love must come from oneself! Self-love heals and aligns one with the true centre. The heart soul centre.
This is a profound leap in evolution.
As we move through we tend to go backwards and forwards on this as we make the transition; head heart head heart... Nearly always love and being of service towards yourself and others is the way. Returning to this whenever things feel overwhelming or confusing brings great calm.
In fifth dimension, one is in responsibility for their now, acknowledging that anything that arises is theirs to heal and integrate. One is aware that the conditions of ‘now’ are constantly changing. Life is like a hologram and what shows up in the outer world is showcasing our internal awareness and state of being. Everything we move through is like scenery from a train ride. We do not get too caught up in any outer scenery too much, as we know it will keep changing and is always temporary. We keep more focused on the inner light, and the activities which maintain this, which is where stability comes from. This inner light is your vibration and your perception: The better one feels the higher the vibration and the higher one’s vibration the better one feels. There is one other reason why maintaining and expanding your vibration is very important; the perception of your reality is completely dependant upon it. You only need change your vibration to completely shift how you feel and experience the same situation! A higher vibration brings freedom.
