The sacred heart space of all beings

Everyone is a star. Everyone is a hero. The heroic version of yourself is inside you and it is awakening. It sits in the heart and is aligned with love. It awakens to love and to service. When you seek to awaken the heart be it your own or that of others, you will realize that there is one sacred heart that can be found in all beings. There is one sacred heart, and yet you and each person has their own colour and personality and unique gifts to offer to this world via the sacred heart. The liberated beautiful and brilliant self is one that is aware of the sacred heart. We also call this the inner hero and quite wonderfully, this is who you truly are!

Harmony

Meditation

Harmony exists in the now in every moment, and can be tapped into at any time regardless of what is going on. Next time you find yourself experiencing a challenge, ask yourself,

“Where is the harmony now?”

Feel for it and allow it to guide you. Harmony is a healthy focus and a super guide. Sometimes one can feel it but is too lazy or busy to go with it. Discovering and moving with your own internal rhythm and timing is central to exploring and experiencing harmony.

Being in harmony with yourself; you speak truth, love easily and exist peacefully. 

The dominant vibration one holds is how one feels and what one attracts, i.e. if one breathes harmoniously, one will automatically feel more harmony and circumstances will occur more harmoniously in their life. In this modern, busy world, harmony is definitely more a choice than something one accidentally falls into. 

When one feels stuck in life it is often due to their inner GPS being set to drama, sadness, anger, self-pity or a myriad of other unhelpful vibrations!. Try shifting your central core feeling to harmony today and see how your day unfolds. Focus on it strongly for a few minutes to really conenct with it then continue with your day. When you remember, take 3 harmonious breaths in a row. 

One has the power to alter one’s vibration at any time. By focusing upon harmonious breathing, one accepts what is as is and one’s reality alters.

Many people especially those who regularly meditate are able to alter their vibration at will. The feelings you focus on in meditation will be reflected back to you throughout the day, in this case, harmony will be reflected back to you through harmonious feelings and experiences. A worth enough reason to focus upon it for 3 minutes+!

The more harmonious the breath, the more harmonious you’ll feel and regardless of reality, you'll perceive it from a more harmonious place.

Considerations.

Questions that can help to favourably open up the mind:

 

I wonder how today will go if it is delightful from this minute onwards to the second I fall asleep?

I wonder how tomorrow would be if I wake up feeling delight, have an amazing, satisfying and delightful day, and then fall to sleep feeling delight?

 

Often asking this question heralds a wave of joy for the day ahead and following days ahead! 

 

The master and leader of your destiny is arising within you. You are a master, awakening as a veil of illusion is evaporating.

You can observe yourself more clearly and realise how powerful you are in creating your reality.

What if life is a self-fulfilling prophecy and you are the one prophesizing!?

This is worth some serious consideration. What do you ponder? Imagine? Self-prophesize? Bring harmony in and see what that tells you and delivers.

In this new paradigm, we take the perspective that there are no problems. Anything that used to be considered a problem is now an opportunity. List here any old problems (left column) that are now being seen as opportunities (right column). This can help one release old patterns and shift to delight!

Problem – What are you running away from?

Opportunity –Seeing harmony in it and realising the gift of the situation

C'est ca! Even just one thing- one 'issue!' Bring it into harmony now- and return to it throughout the next few days. Nice One!

“Imagination should be used, not to escape reality but to create it” Colin Wilson

Wake Up Inner Hero!

Everyone is a star. Everyone is a hero. The heroic version of yourself is inside you and it is awakening. It is aligned with love and clear, yet it has its own colour, personality and gifts to bring to this world. The liberated beautiful and brilliant self - your inner hero is who you truly are!

Would you like to know yourself better and be more of your Inner Hero?

Your hero is always present; you just got to turn your focus to see and be one with the true you!

That means no getting side tracked by addictions and aversions! I know! But it doesn’t mean that you can not enjoy things, you can! It’s really just means to not get sidetracked by being overly attached or just too scared. Trust me, it is a seriously fun, fascinating and fulfilling path and worth experiencing! 

In the things you do well in life, your hero is acting through you. Keep growing these areaa and aim to expand the other areas of your life to this level too. In growth, there is expansion and in expansion there is oneness with the life force energy. Introduce the ease that you feel in one area to another!

The inner hero is peaceful, happy, courageous and strong. Sometimes the hero requires rest and rejuvenation and this is also perfect. Sometimes the hero has to find the energy to move their ass and get going, this too is perfect. The hero within you is the real you. Are you willing to allow your hero to be in each and every moment!?

"Where is my hero now!?"

We, mankind are shifting identity as we move into greater consciousness; from personalities with souls, to souls with personalities and this shift in identity makes quite a difference.

Keep a journal, record how you feel, major events and observations and get ready to watch the magic unfold. It is a commitment, and commitment is super powerful. Let’s warm up!

What you'd love to happen but is not happening is usually what you are afraid of.

In your journal, write out what you’d love to see happening in your life and project love into these ideas regularly. This will help lead the subconscious from resistance, fear and sabotage to peace, acceptance and delight!

 

~When you focus on what makes you feel good you naturally generate feel-good energy~

~Move your focus to a place that feels good for at least some of your day! 5 minutes here and 5 minutes there goes a very long way to creating a much more enjoyable day!

Experiment and see for free!~

Focus on feel good for 3 x 5 minutes daily- and after 5 days you’ll see that you’ll feel quite sweet or your money back! ?

Step 1 in Waking up the Inner Hero

Clear your space

“What you don´t have you don't need somehow, what you don´t have you don't need it now”. Bono, U2

Energy is fluid and naturally flows to us and from us. Sometimes we allow ourselves to be in the flow and sometimes we hold on, materially, physically and emotionally. By letting go of what we no longer require or benefit from and likewise allowing yourself to receive what is being offered, we realign with the flow.

The basis of the flow:

  • Enjoy, use and grow what you have,
  • Release, give away or dispose of what you do not need, enjoy,
  • Receive openly that which is being offered that works for you.

When you meet someone who is looking for what you have and you don’t need it, offer it, and in practice releasing what you no longer need. The universe is a glorious union, a flow made of up lots of cells like the human body each different, unique, but part of the one flowing system. The natural flow brings to people what they need. You are a channel for life when the flow moves more freely through you. Things will come to you as you need them, and sometimes even in advance. Sometimes you’ll be the receiver and sometimes you’ll be the giver. 

If you haven’t already done so recently, it is time to clear out your home. Starting with the bedroom, go through closets, drawers, cupboards… Empty each area at a time.  Fix or dispose of anything broken or that doesn’t make you feel good and get rid of everything you no longer need or use.  

Have 4 bags;      

  • For giving to friends and family
  • For charity
  • For selling
  • For recycling/ disposal.

Also feel free to sell anything you wish, it does not have to be given away! This approach will clear many unnecessary things from your life.

Your mind will become clearer and brighter. Things you’ve been holding on to but no longer need or like also symbolise mental and emotional weights you are unnecessarily carrying.

With each material object you dispense of you will feel emotionally and mentally lighter.

With each area you tidy your mind will also feel lighter and function more clearly. Your mood will lighten. Inner Hero

Give yourself 1 -2 weeks for each room. Aim to enjoy the process.

You will find the opportunity to gift things you no longer require. When you release that which you no longer require, you create space. The universe is organised in a manner that it likes to fill space and will send more to you, what is sent to you now though will be more in alignment with who you currently are and not the old you.

If no one else has use for it, it is okay to recycle or dispose of it as rubbish. Consciously give it back to the universe with gratitude.

Your eyes, mind and heart will be more peaceful when there is tidiness and space surrounding you.

Make a plan now. Visualise it in your mind; the parts of the house, black sacks, emptying, tidying, and see the end result nice clear space that feels great.

Now you are ready to start! And when you get rid of the old stuff, remember new stuff more fitting for you will find a way to you. Below is a chart that can help.

Clear spaces, then maintain every 6 months for peaceful living. 

Enjoy the pleasure of the journey and tick as you complete each area.

Clear bedroom

  • Cupboards
  • Wardrobe
  • Under bed
  • Other

Clear living room

  • Shelves
  • Units
  • Rest of space

Clear kitchen

  • Cupboards
  • Fridge
  • Shelves
  • Other

Clear bathrooms

  • Cupboards
  • Bath/Shower/ Sink
  • Other

Clear other rooms

-

-

-

Clear outside house

  • Around doors
  • Garage
  • Other

Clear holiday space

-

Clear car

Other

Enjoyed it so far!?

You will when complete- guaranteed! May you enjoy each and every drawer you empty and repack, clothes that you fold and reorganise, item you no longer need that you give away, offerings that you give to charity, flower bed that you clear. Every time you enter a space may you feel the pleasure of the lighter and clearer space you are nurturing.

Birthday musings

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

Wishing you a great day! Thank you!

Will upload some pictures in next day or two. It is chilly but mostly sunny with blue skies here!

Update 22nd of Feb- Well today is the last full day in London, back to Ireland tomorrow morning! I've really enjoyed my time here. Hanging out with my sister and meeting some great open hearted people. It's always a pleasure to experience a nice connection with another.

Highlights so far:

  • The Soul's Goal workshop. Love this work and had my own mini breakthrough with 'I am generous to myself!' I realised I had some disharmony here so am embracing this further! I realised that I had some limiting judgement (that it was bad to be decently generous with oneself!) and what is funny is that my heart feels like it is opening even more every time I say this statement.
  • Some wonderful healing sessions that just give such good energy! Ever grateful for the deepening love, peace and harmony.
  • Hanging out with my sister. Be able to be here while she was unwell and just chat and and share visions and support. Plus she has an amazing home that she so generously and openly shares. This can make all the difference when one is in a big city like London. Thanks sis :) 
  • The architecture of London. I love how varied  it is and how it all works together so well. It just works. Apartments everywhere but designed brilliant so no one in looking in on you and yes great light and views. Clever and artistic. I like it!
  • Encounters and great synchronicity with some lovely people. Life is all the better for growing connections  and sharing moments with others :)
  • Experiencing Hare Krishna here in London. Amid the grew rain on Friday night I found a place called the 'Matchless Gift' where I sang my heart out with a group of people I'd never met before. A few conversations led to an offer of a lift to the Bhaktivedanta Manor, the Hare Krishna centre and farm outside of London which George Harrison gifted to the community many years ago. Having heard of this place for years I was delighted to visit and join in the 24 hour kirtan for a few lovely hours before heading back to London with a lovely group of people for Harinam. Harinam basically involves, walking, singing and dancing through the streets of London with a great bunch of people sharing love and light with the world. Soho lit up and partied with us, Chinatown went crazy in a lovely way with great dancing and cheers and singing, Piccadilly Circus glowed with love and even a tube station got serenaded with masses of joy. Saturday was also the birthday of Nitynanda, 'The lotus feet of Lord Nityananda are a shelter where one will get the soothing moonlight not only of one, but of millions of moons.' He I believe was best bud of Krishna and a pathway as sch to Krishna/ God. His gift is spiritual strength. Well I did feel stronger as I sang my way around London with this fun group of people. I was however at the end wrecked and gladly made it home that night. Exhausted! The thing is though, the next morning I had to wake early for a skype meeting and low and behold I woke up feeling amazing! Not much sleep but more energy than I'd felt in weeks and such happiness sparkling all thorough  my body  and mind. A big smile and glow just feeling wonderful! I have chanted with the Hare Krishna community for years now because what it does for my heart is beyond words. This feeling is the magic for happiness, and I've experienced such benefits and joy even without knowing the full philosophy that the experiential part of great happiness is something to share with others. We can  eat well, sleep, work in jobs that we love, take care of others, but there is something in addition that grows from a fulfilling spiritual practice. It's beyond words. I wish this light and happiness for all. It's like happy popping candy for the soul. May all beings be happy and feel blessed.

A big thank you to all who attended the most recent Soul's Goals Level 1+2 workshop on Saturday 30th at Tulfarris. We had a blast, but also a deep and powerful connection and transformative journey. 

As a result we are running another workshop over three evenings in Dublin. It runs fortnightly on Wednesday evenings from this Wednesday the 10th of Feb, and then again on the 24th and on the 9th of April. We would love to bring together a small group of people to work together through The Soul's Goals Level 1 and 2.

This workshops is enough to make a real difference. It can be life changing and is definitely life-enhancing.
