Shattering Illusions

 

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 woman angel wingsgoes.

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

What a time of healing I am in

What’s different this time is that there is no real sadness or regret, though there is pain. Unresolved, it arises. I didn’t even realise it existed but it appears, pain and tears and moves right through. Released, a bird freed flying the coup –happy & feeling love for the whole universe and I feel even better than before.  Yes the difference this time is that I am willing, very willing to be whatever I am, whatever it is. I’m ok with life, I accept it graciously. Is that what comes with age? Experience? Or just ‘pfff’ a moment that instantaneously arises of its own accord? There is a flow and I will not take it personally. I happily allow and observe.

There is a force of Good. It is with us and I can feel it, a gentle breeze against my cheek, at all times that I remember her; she is here, loving us into voluntary relaxation, release, submission as a beautiful unfoldment of our true nature emerges. All furnaces have been lit by this flame. What gift is this? Indeed what a time of healing and renewal we are in. 

'This being human is a guest house. every morning a new arrival; a joy, a depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and attend them all. Even if they're a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of it's furniture, still, treat each guest honorably. He may be clearing you out for some new delight. The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing and invite them in. 

Be grateful for whoever comes because each has been sent as a guide from beyond.'

You are the light warrior of this time

You are a shining light

11153509 1571194869837008 1711142946 o

As you make it through the darkness you leave an essence of light on the path you journey in the cosmic mystery - this light helps others find the way too. Every thought, every action, every word, every feeling is rippling through the universe right now. The path may seem heavy sometimes and even a tiresome struggle you'd like to be rid of, but please hold on... You have done so much amazing work in overcoming the challenges this world presented you with. True transmutation. Celebration time is here and way more is on the way~ 6 months of great energy is lining up for us...

Light warrior

Yes every day is a good day, but sometimes it is really challening, expecially for some. In this moment I salute you; you who have worked your butt off letting go of all to be soul, present on this planet; you who has helped the light grow on this planet to exponential proportions. This is true light warrior work and as beautiful as it is, we all know that it is has not always been easy. You are doing light warrior work when you choose love over not love, when you think kindness, acceptance, compassion, forgiveness, peace... instead of... This goes for how you treat yourself as well as how you relate with others; deep down each person is an aspect of your own being.

We are awakening

You are a beacon of shining light. The great masters are amongst us, we are all at some level of awakening. Even those poeple you didn't like or who were mean and nasty, they too are awakening! We are growing into ourselves, into our true selves! Let's keep going!

Forgiveness

When you forgive, don't just wipe the slate clean for your experience, wipe it clean for your experience and for all others involved, this is true forgiveness and liberation, the greatest gift to yourself and others. Wish them well. Let it go. Recognise soul family, every male and female a brother and sister. Competition is over, it leads only to isolation. Let's raise up each other, celebrate each other and hold space and love for each other, when the going is great and when the going is tough ~

The 5th Dimension

The new paradigm,the 5th dimension is here and accessible now for all. We are in a place of divine harmony and in the vesica pisces of multidimensional 3D and 5D reality. Anchor into your body; be it in the heart, the third eye, the solar plexus ... Choice is a massive part of this journey. Love is often a choice, especially in moments of transmutation. Right now, I urge you to listen within to your heartbeat for one minute and re/affirm your choice. I choose to be fully present in this body, I choose to align with peace & I choose to love you X <3 U
