I Love Terri Irwin`s Truth

Book a Healing Session

It was so lovely watching Terri Irwin on television last week as she sat for Anh Do while he painted her portrait.  How refreshing it was to see a high profile woman of my age truly owning her years yet sadly it has become a rarity these days.

We share the same birth year, Terri and me, and the thing that resonated as I watched her was the expression of absolute truth, as though I was watching pure, unconditional love in action.  What I loved was her acceptance ;  her clear non-resistance to the march of time and its unmistakable signature imprinted into her symmetrical features.  It was so pleasing and reassuring to see a well known female face on-screen that sparkled with character and distinctive originality.

I was enthralled by her beautiful and expressive face, unworked and totally natural, vibrant, soft, open and receptive.  I would not want to speculate on Terri`s reasons for remaining work-free and I can only speak of what I saw :  a woman comfortable in her own skin, free from denial and insecurity, and gutsily defying societal and industry pressure to inject and fill and nip and tuck, all to erase the ravages of time.  Her lived experience, her every story, her choices, her challenges, her every victory, her every disappointment, her grief and her strength is right there, visible and worn with dignity.

Moreover, as I listened to her candid and generous interview her words, thoughts and feelings just seemed to have substance.  There was a trustworthiness and a compelling credibility to them because they poured forth from an unaltered and unspoilt face.  There was no diminution of the overall message because everything about Terri conveyed integrity.  To my eyes and my perception there were no pieces of Terri missing and I felt as though I was watching a woman who knows her true worth, a woman at deep ease with herself.  She chooses not to shackle her womanly value – her female power – to her physicality by pursuing an implausibly youthful appearance.

Ageing

The gift of Grace in growing older and gaining wisdom is a privilege yet in our youth-obsessed culture ageing is treated as a disease – a repugnant curse that needs to be concealed and repudiated as quickly as possible.  Here in pro-plastic Sydney where injectables and age-erasing procedures are seemingly de rigueur even amongst the Kardashian-inspired 20-somethings – the so-called “injectorati” – my unworked face, I have been told is considered a sign of neglect.  My lined 54 year old visage is likely viewed as disparate and passé​ in cosmopolitan Sydney, perhaps too rustic and unsophisticated and a little out-of-place in this aspirational town where style and chutzpah trump substance much of the time.  More troubling to me is the long-term damage these injected foreign substances might be doing to these young women.  Will we see more Parkinsons Disease in the coming decades?

Everything feels so disposable today with in-built obsolescence par for the course and I wonder if the increasingly broader cultural normalisation of cosmetic enhancements and procedures actually marginalises and tacitly deems irrelevant the unworked face?  I have the uneasy feeling that for older women in our culture the implied message is this :  without a worked face you`re simply not a contender.

Not that it is likely to change me.  I am pretty comfortable wearing my lived-in face and I`ll take truth over illusion, uniqueness over homogeneity, facial animacy over inert lifelessness any day.  Besides, I have Terri for company.  And Jerry.

I remember watching an interview on the ABC with Jerry Hall back in 2015 – the then 59 year old was due to begin a Sydney season playing Mrs Robinson in The Graduate – and I was captivated by her natural and lined face.  Here was a self-assured lady who evidently honoured her own stories and experiences and who bore them with pride.  She was so animated and alive, and her authenticity and allowance of the ageing process – her yield to it – was fabulous.  To my eyes she was disarmingly beautiful.  Here was a high-profile A-lister courageously defying the botox trend, unapologetically embracing the passage of time and wearing her years with regalness, love and absolute validation.  And she radiated sexiness too!

I salute Terri and Jerry for their difference.  I admire these women because at their core they know who they are.  They are both aligned with their truth.  I celebrate their self-respect, their self-love, their wholeness and most of all I love their determination and bravery to fly in the face of expectation and the crushing pressure to conform.

Solstice Truth : A Time To Dig A Little Deeper

Book a Healing Session

 As Above, So Below

I love this time of year for the rich metaphysical gifts it offers us.  Each year, every six months the palpable Solstice energy, to me, unfailingly feels stimulating, inspiring and enlightening, offering an opportunity to connect more deeply with Universal flow and to feel at one with The All That Is as the changing seasons mirror the rhythms of our own life.

Here in the Southern hemisphere, the Winter Solstice gateway each June invites us to check in with our true Self – the Highest aspect of ourselves – and ask some searching questions, connecting inwardly with introspection and reflection with the view of letting go of the old.  This powerful and venerable energy gateway urges us to examine our current path and ask of ourselves the question :  does my path feel expanded, joyous, light and pregnant with potential?  Or does it feel contracted, limited, dreary and cheerless?

The Winter Solstice gateway heralds our journey back to the Light.  Celestially, this is the perfect time to be working with the energy of loving intentionality to nurture and manifest positive change.  Solstice energy denotes completion and fresh starts.

Tuning into, or simply holding Awareness of the Sun`s passage through our sky allows us to tap into the sacred and creative power of the Cosmos, aligning us with a more spiritual path of healing, profound growth and enlightenment, and strengthening our connection with resonant, supportive, kindred spirits – our Earthly family of Light.

The fiery element of our Sun, the giver of light and warmth, both provides life and destroys it.  Just as the element of Fire purifies and transforms, the Solstice Gateway illuminates and clarifies our choices : subtly supporting and energising those that are in alignment with our truest and highest path yet synchronically bringing to the surface anything that no longer serves our highest good and most benevolent outcome.  The Solstice energy supports resolution and release and it unveils our most heart-felt desires.

Here in Sydney, Winter Solstice 2018 occurs at 8:07 pm on Thursday, 21st June.  This is the exact moment when the Earth’s axial tilt is farthest away from the sun.  Light a candle, meditate, invite the guidance of Spirit, set some Intentions and celebrate this mystical and revered time.

From around the 15th of June we will be receiving infusions of higher-dimensional photonic Light – intelligent Light – radiating from the Galactic core that will immerse Earth and flood our Light bodies and our mental and physical bodies.

Navigating a path through these potent energetic influences can present challenges but maintaining a sense of connectedness to Spirit and the ever-present subtle realms can help.

Flowing with the waves of Cosmic Light is easier when we seek out things and activities that bring us joy.  Spend time in nature and in gratitude and move into the space of your Heart, allowing the Heart to lead.  Nurture yourself, eat healthy, high frequency non-GM food, and explore some form of creative expression that nourishes your Soul.  These simple things keep us in a state of Flow and feeling connected to the natural Universal field of abundance and Love that is available to us all.

Meditating with the VIOLET FIRE FLAME can help …

Light Is Information and Colour Is Language

Violet is the ray of Divine Love, Forgiveness and Grace.  It holds the vibrational resonance of Divine transmutation and Divine freedom.

Violet is the highest frequency on the visible colour spectrum, and is the point of transition to the next octave of Light vibration.

The Violet Flame is intrinsically a spiritual energy ; it is the frequency of purification and was brought forward by Saint Germain.  It has the ability to change vibration at the atomic level, consuming and dissolving all cause, effect, record and cellular memory of past negative, misqualified and discordant energy stored at the physical level and in the subtle causal plane.  The Violet Fire transforms Consciousness and resolves emotional and psychological imbalance.  In the past I have used the Violet Flame as a Healing balm for bodily aches and pains.

The Violet Flame transmutes density into Light and brings a sense of inner harmony, equilibrium and ease.  It transmutes everything that does not resonate with Divine Love.

For just a few minutes each day visualise yourself completely immersed in the Violet Fire Flame, from your Earth Star Chakra beneath your feet, all the way up to your Soul Star above your head.  Decree your intention for Healing and transformation to occur in the Violet Fire Flame and breathe deeply.

Happy Winter Solstice!

A Salute To The Sacred Masculine

Book a Healing Session

Much has been written over the past 15 years about the resurgence of the formerly degraded and oppressed feminine energy, now rising and taking her place as the exemplary Divine Feminine.  This paradigm shift in Earth`s harmonic is, by design, restoring the balance of the Feminine and the Masculine principles on Earth.  The Divine Feminine represents nurturance – spiritual and emotional nourishment and growth – and she comes in at a time when humanity needs this aspect to support the evolution of consciousness and the transformative “growth” of mankind occurring now and accelerating since 2012.

Just as the Earth is now anchored in the Fifth Dimension and its beautiful resonance of Unity Consciousness, connection and oneness, we too are being called to mirror this unity at the quantum level.  Each individual embodies some traits of both the Feminine and the Masculine, and this time now – known as The Shift – with its focus of transition into wholeness and enlightenment is guiding us to call forward the lost elements of both aspects within ourselves, retrieving these qualities so that we may embody the Sacred Union of the twin flames of the Divine Feminine and the Sacred Masculine.

The evolution of Consciousness unfolding on Earth now is allowing individuals to transcend out-dated, societal definitions of what it means to be either male or female.  The path of Healing, growth and transformation leading to liberation and empowerment enables the individual to personify a non-binary presentation in Third Dimensional physical expression.  As I write this, the old Virginia Slims advertisement from the 1970 s comes to mind :  “you`ve come a long way, baby”.

The culmination of the retrieval of these lost pieces within ourselves is the holy marriage of the two aspects into Divine unification.  We become the embodiment of the eternal unified flame of the God/Goddess, achieving whole-brain integration of the two cerebral hemispheres and evolving into self-realisation, sacred balance and the New Earth crystalline brain.  The sexy part is that the unified Fifth Dimension of Consciousness is the foundational platform that provides us access to higher galactic and cosmic energies and a new bandwidth of Light and information.  This Higher Awareness is the springboard into multidimensional Being and a sweeter life here in the Earthly material plane.

However, after much emphasis on the rise of the Divine Feminine it is time to honour the Sacred Masculine principle as the Goddess now beckons him forward.  So what are the traits that characterise him?  He represents the God energy of Loving Responsibility, Divine Will, Inspired Action, Perfect Manifestation and Illumined Faith.  My Sacred Masculine aspect gives me the rationality and linear logic to calculate and solve problems.  He galvanizes me into courageous and magnificent forward motion.  My Sacred Masculine is the energy of doing and outward connection ; he moves on pure faith and trust ; he brings linearity to Cosmic and intuitive messages and guidance, exercising reasoning and utilitarian application to Higher wisdom in this physical Third Dimensional plane.  His is not a patriarchal energy but a resonance of gentle love and quiet determination as he provides and protects.

My Divine Feminine makes her presence felt in my intuition, my compassion, my receptivity, my creativity, my co-operative and nurturing side, and those times when I just feel like basking but I really love and appreciate my Sacred Masculine aspect because he grounds me back into linear and centered expression in the material plane.  He earths me when I may have spent too much time in my Divine Feminine and the subtle, Higher intuitive energies.  He gently reminds me to connect outward once more and that I need to be flowing my Love out to the external world at those times when I have been overly-focussed on internal connection (meditation and spiritual practice).  This Sacred Union of the two aspects of Self is a deft, finely-judged balance as the twin flames complement and enhance each other.  Working with Intentionality, meditation and sincere, Loving spiritual practice is an effective method of calling back the recessive, forgotten components of our twin aspects.

I love the image below, of the interlocking male/female symbols and the symbolism of the exalted merge of the twin flames of the Divine Feminine and Sacred Masculine.  Applying this representation to the subtle field of our Light-Body and our DNA plasma, the vesica piscis formed by the overlapping spheres is in truth, a crystalline portal into Higher consciousness and multidimensional Being and it represents the ascended trinity of Divine creativity, Love and manifestation AND all its boundless potential.

Light Is Information and Colour Is Language

  MEDITATION, INTENTIONALITY and ALCHEMY

This unification – the Sacred Union of the twin aspects – is a key precondition for Light-Body activation because the process of Soul retrieval (calling back the lost bits of our twin aspects) activates Light filaments or strands of memory within the DNA, initiating an alchemical blend within the plasma of living Light that exists behind the double helix structure.  These strands of Light are multi-locational – they exist in multiple locations simultaneously – and they are formed from the blending of matter and anti-matter.  This is plasma and in this context – that of Healing, transformation and the unification of the twin aspects – we are initiating activation within the pure Light component of plasma.

In any given moment we are emanating a living, electromagnetic field.  As we hold the Intention to heal and return to wholeness we draw in and anchor more Light in our subtle field and in our physical body and it is the unification of Light that purifies our emotions and thoughts.  Magically, our DNA strands and our DNA plasma Light field mirror our emotions, reorganising the DNA strands in response.  Additionally, our DNA structure transfigures itself when we hold a fractal, coherent and symmetrical thought process.  Consciousness truly is King.

For years I have been fascinated – and comforted – by the presentation of vibrant colours during my meditations.  Colour is intrinsically a Universal language and a medium of communication because frequency is Light and colour represents mathematical code.  Advanced travellers are able to decode messages by colour and therefore decode by frequency.  Colour is also a vehicle of Consciousness ; in the Higher dimensions and subtle realms colour is experienced as a fractal, multidimensional living field.  The enjoyment of these vivid, meditative colour presentations triggers within the DNA a matching geometric formation that mirrors the frequency of these glorious colours.

Galactic Influences and the Unified Flame Of The God/Goddess 

Here in the Southern Hemisphere the Light of the constellation CRUX (our ever-present Southern Cross) has been assisting the emergence of the Divine Feminine harmonic on Earth.  The vibrational resonance of CRUX is pure Goddess and the flow of Light codes from this constellation are feeding into Earth`s Southern portal, strengthening and stabilizing the rising Feminine.  The Southern Hemisphere is taking the lead in anchoring the Higher dimensions of Consciousness on Earth through this time of the paradigm shift, and now in perfect harmony the star system of Sirius is supporting the rise of the Sacred Masculine.

As we approach and prepare for the momentous Lion`s Gate Stargate portal – climaxing on the 8/8 Gateway (the 8th of August) and overseen by Sirian energy – we are being primed for a monumental leap forward in our evolution and transformation at the quantum (personal) level.  Each and every year Sirius lovingly ushers us through this powerful energy gateway.  As discussed earlier in this essay, the quality of inspired action and forward movement is very much a trait of the Sacred Masculine aspect and for this reason the Sirian energy to me, has a distinctly Masculine echo.  The solemn Sirian influences are about getting us from A to B, advancing us to the next point in this Earthly evolution of Consciousness.  The fabulous and potent Masculine Sirian Light and Light Codes are seeding the next wave of changes and upgrades for Earth and humanity, divinely driving and manifesting the next stage of our ascension.

To the Sacred Masculine, I salute you!

Navigating A Healing Crisis

Book a Healing Session

Tears are Truth.  Love them.

This piece is a homage to our tears, a salute to their deep Healing power.  Countless times I have heard my female clients say “I am not a cryer, never have been” but here`s the thing :  we really should honour our tears.  Tears are a purgative.  They represent authenticity and strength and courage as the truth of the emotion asserts itself, finally surfacing so that it may heal and release.

Not always but occasionally the process of Healing will trigger a Healing crisis however I must emphasize that Healing is a journey and not an end-point ; it is a continuous process of release and purification.  It is widely acknowledged that a physical Healing crisis – variously known as the detox reaction, the cleansing reaction, and the Jarisch-Herxheimer reaction – can occur during or after a dietary cleanse, or sometimes after reflexology and massage, when environmental toxins that have accumulated in tissue throughout the body, especially fat tissue, begin to dislodge and flush into the bloodstream.  Additionally, the human body has bacterial colonies and as the bacteria die off they release endotoxins and this physical purification can cause nausea, skin eruptions, bloating, excessive perspiration, fatigue, diarrhea and other unpleasant symptoms which typically last up to three days.

This article however is about an altogether different kind of Healing crisis, one that is metaphysical and emotional in nature and I stress here that only a few will experience an emotional Healing crisis.  A Healing crisis is a response to an intention to heal.  By the time a person walks through my door they have already made an agreement with their Higher Self about the Healing they will receive, but they`ll never receive more than they can handle.  Occasionally a Healing session will precipitate a temporary emotional crisis because the crisis is symptomatic of the system re-organizing itself.  Transpiring post-session is the comprehensive re-ordering into coherence, harmony and balance within the individual`s physical and subtle bodies.  This process is working to return the quantum field (the individual) back to an optimal state of balance.  The body has a natural tendency towards wellness and homeostasis and the corrective process underway post-session attests to the wisdom and innate intelligence of the system.  Active post-session are mechanisms of release and purging from cellular memory and the internal environment however this organic response may bring up discomfort and temporary malaise as you move through the layers.  Tears not shed previously will likely be shed now as the heart opens.  Please honour them.

“You can`t take your baggage with you” 

 –  author and teacher Jim Self of Mastering Alchemy

The therapeutic benefit of a good cry is recognized by psychologists.  Tears are healthy because they help us process the loss, resolve the grief, heal the heart and assist physical detoxification.  Grief is held in the lungs and sobbing – a normal, healthy expression of grief – helps to shift the stored and stuck emotion out of the lung tissue and cells.  The deeper breathing and expulsion of air with each sob brings movement to the depths of the lungs and to the stored emotion.  Studies have shown that emotional tears (as distinct from reflex tears and continuous tears) actually contain stress hormones and accumulated toxins that are excreted from the body through crying.  Additional studies also suggest that crying stimulates the production of endorphins and elevates mood, and after emotional crying our heart rate and respiration slow and we enter a calmer biological and emotional state.

The process of release is not always elegant or tidy and it is not always linear and orderly.  You may find yourself questioning your belief structures, your choices, your identity ; pretty much everything may well come up for review.  This may cause temporary confusion as the quantum field is re-arranged and you are readied to hold more light and receive new light frequencies.

An emotional Healing crisis can occur when there is a history of abuse or trauma, suffering or separation ; it can occur as long-held wounding is healed and released or when a previously unresolved emotion is finally honoured, notably repressed grief, anger or resentment.  A Healing crisis can feel acute and difficult to endure because the Healing work brings awareness to the emotion, allowing the individual to finally be present to it.  The Healing crisis may even be regressing the individual back into the dire phase of the causal event.  A Healing crisis of this nature may feel extremely unpleasant, rough, confronting and almost claustrophobic, as though things are closing in, however the intensity typically eases quickly and should pass in two to three days.

The bottom line is, if you were not present to the pain at the time of the event, if you pushed it down and buried it in the interests of self-preservation and survival in order to “move on” quickly then it will resurface at some point in your future timeline expressly to be healed.  Unresolved emotion has to manifest, be it in a physical presentation or mental/emotional imbalance.  Around 12 years ago and in the midst of a deep and eviscerating grief event I read a short book about loss (in all its many forms) and the key message was that we must be present to the grief in all its vastness.  As hard as it is, eventually we have to sit with it.  In Western society we are encouraged to “keep busy” but this sets us up for difficulties further down the line and an increased susceptibility to Depression.  In pop-psychology parlance, those exhibiting a spectrum of behaviours and traits considered to be indicative of Type A personalities – the highly competitive, perfectionistic, ambitious, goal-driven, workaholic, impatient over-achievers who set the bar high for themselves – are, as I have observed, more likely to move into continuation mode, pushing down the emotion, denying it and carrying on without missing a beat.

The cacophonous noise stops.

Often experienced during this type of Healing crisis is the feeling of being lost or scattered and some have described feeling as though they are in a kind of void, a space of nothingness.  What is happening here is that the work undertaken in the Healing session is dismantling old mental programmes, emotional patterns and conditioning.  As these ingrained habits unravel and begin to vibrate out it creates an energetic gap.  The ceaseless, old rumination, drama, out-dated beliefs and jumble of unconscious habits are dissolving, consequently creating a shift in energetic frequency and vibration that transmutes density as higher-frequency light enters the void.  This allows a great big, beautiful space of higher consciousness to anchor within, one that is bursting with limitless potential as you transfigure into wholeness, Love and forgiveness – forgiveness for yourself and forgiveness for those who did the wounding.  The seeds of profound transformation are sewn in the void.

The journey of self-enquiry takes guts and fortitude but honouring the process as you transition through an emotional Healing crisis will yield rich rewards.  Soon enough you will find yourself inhabiting a space of new knowingness, certainty, self-possession and sovereignty, and the vibrational resonance of joyful well being.

So, what are you going to do with your new-found freedom?  How will you co-create your glorious, empowered, sparkling, big new future timeline?  I`m super-excited for you.

Embracing My Un-Cool

Book a Healing Session

 OBLIVION  (noun) :  the state of being unaware or unconscious of what is happening around one (ref : Oxford Dictionaries)

I was never cool.  Not even back in the supposed heyday of my 20s and 30s.  Nope, not even close.  To qualify as cool you need to be unimpressed by pretty much everything and that was never me.  Ebullient types like me – the eager ones – were decidedly un-cool.  And so it is today I find myself still inhabiting the domain of the un-cool, well outside the desired circle of hipness, resolutely marching to the beat of my own drum out on the periphery and this is never more evident than when I visit my morning coffee haunt.  That`s because every single person there, whether they are seated at a table or standing on the footpath waiting to grab their takeaway brew, is buried in their phone.  Except me.  I must seem like a curious oddity to the others, a quaint anachronism.  Oh wait!  Nobody is noticing my phonelessness because they are all buried in their smartphones.  Love it!  Invisible in my un-cool, but this preponderance of the Phone People – the cool au courant – is to be seen absolutely everywhere and quite honestly I worry for them because the habit of seeking and focussing intensely on data of any kind actually constitutes an energy drain.

‘au courant’  literally : in the current / meaning : up-to-date

Distraction and diversion :  I guess smartphones are the perfect companion for the shy, the introverted and those who are just plain avoidant.  I wonder if the cool au courant – the perpetually connected – feel super-relieved to escape reality once they have ordered their coffee because they seem to need to dive straight back into their device, resuming habitation of that limbo state of the cyber non-world.  Do the Phone People like being in resistance to their immediate circumstance?  Gazing fixedly into their device they lean into another place – any place but right here – hiding in plain sight yet belonging in the right way because everyone else is doing it too.  I contemplate whether inside the sphere of the cool au courant they dismiss the concept of staying present to the now moment.  They seem not to need it.  The Phone People seem somehow to prefer the reductive and depreciative experience of oblivion that is life in cyberspace and the ceaseless cacophony of social media and the apps and the newsfeeds and the blah blah blah.  To me, out here on the margin it resembles a state of oblivion because the Phone People are neither one place nor the other.

Savouring the now moment with all its beauty, openness, wisdom, vulnerability and creativity is seemingly not for the cool au courant.  The Phone People are missing all the sensory wonder and magic and mystery of the present.  Maybe they feel this concept is only suited to the self-indulgent navel-gazers.  Staying present to one`s immediate experience – known as mindfulness – is synonymous with being in a state of acceptance, but do the Phone People see this as passive and wimpy, I wonder?  Intentionally paying attention, observing the minutiae and noticing the gifts of grace in the actual physical world is perhaps not stimulating enough for the Phone People.  Maybe the cool au courant are way more comfortable in sensory contraction, the stupor of the disconnect?

Buddhists, Taoists, yogis, the ancient and indigenous cultures and the great and wise teachers (too many to name here) universally extol the benefits of staying present to the now moment.  They all emphasize that this simple practice of mindfulness – conscious awareness – underpins the robustness of our spiritual and mental health.  For me, staying present and mindful in the now is the optimal precondition for moving into a space of peace, trust and flow.  It is detachment and it is liberation.  Relaxing fully into the present moment allows the human energy field to expand, opening up our connection to the subtle realms, in turn allowing access to greater creativity and deeper joy.  Mindfulness allows the individual to feel at one with the whole ; it relegates the ego and lulls overthinking.  But maybe this is all a bit boring for the Phone People.  Phone People appear to me to be immersed in their own little bubble and totally separate yet ironically the chief feature and selling point of the smartphone is connectedness.  I`m not sure the Phone People are connected at all.  Have we all been conned into a state of faux-connection?

smartphone addiction

The collective nose-thumb by the Phone People is almost sexy.  Who gives a damn about neck problems, premature myopia and disruption to melatonin production caused by the blue light emitting from their screen, right?  The cool au courant clearly are not worried about blocked Chakras, digitally-induced anxiety and the obligation to always be connected to their phone.  They are more likely to feel stressed-out and uptight but I guess that is scarcely relevant inside the circle of the perpetually connected because the Phone People are probably unconscious of being unconscious.  Here in Australia we are seeing a spike in the rate of diagnosis of anxiety, Depression and an increase in youth suicide.  I find myself wondering if these statistics are the wretched curse of smartphone addiction.

Personally, out here on the fringe and well removed from the envied circle of cool, I have never really understood tech addiction.  The advantages of cell phones are self-evident but I just don`t like taking mine with me everywhere I go.  I don`t want the thing running my day and taking over my life.  I have found that focussing on that little screen for too long ungrounds me.  It makes me feel off balance and out of kilter.

I have heard it said that youngsters today are now conditioned to communicate in a whole different way and that this is positive evolutionary change.  Hmmm….I remain skeptical.  A survey of 500 university students in the U.S. found that frequent smartphone usage is directly related to anxiety, happiness, and academic performance and all of it negative.  Kent State University found that “…high frequency cell phone users tended to have lower Grade Point Average, higher anxiety, and lower satisfaction with life (happiness) relative to their peers who used the cell phone less often. The statistical model illustrating these relationships was highly significant.”  (as at January 2015)

Expansive and healing activities such as a short daily practice of meditation and time spent down at the local park or in nature (without their devices!) would be of immense benefit to the Phone People.  Simply bringing awareness to the breath swiftly reconnects us to the present moment and our immediate physical experience and anchors us back into our center.  Being in nature allows Earth`s nourishing and positive energy to ground us, restoring balance and strengthening our physical connection to Earth`s subtle electrical fields.  These are simple remedies and effective antidotes to digital overload, should the Phone People hold that intention.

Contracted Adversity : A Journey To The Sweet

Book a Healing Session

It is said that each of us incarnates into this life with a set of pre-determined Soul contracts.  The notion maintains that each of these contracts materializes in divine timing and shows up as predestined people, events, relationships and circumstances specifically to provide us the opportunity to move closer to the full expression of Soul in this Earthly existence.  I can wholeheartedly attest to this spiritual concept and I unequivocally subscribe to it because it has been my lived experience.

For me, these contractual challenges proved to be radically catalytic and in hindsight, pretty much served as an esoteric baseball bat whacking me around and telling me in no uncertain terms to “wake up Margot …this is not where you should be!”.  They presented in quick-fire succession over a relatively compressed timeframe of just six years, triggering extensive re-structuring within every aspect of the person that I used to be – every element of the psycho-spiritual self – and culminated in the collapse of my old Third Dimensional life with all its distorted priorities, illusion, veils of deception, clutter of unconscious habits and worship of the material.  When I say collapse I really mean that the stuff I had once prioritized no longer had any importance or relevance in my day-to-day life and the tiny nuggets of joy I was adept at finding, say in my working day and which would sustain me through that day had become patently inadequate.  The false congruence and flimsy conditions I had unconsciously put in place that enabled me to continue in a job and a life that was now no longer appropriate swiftly disintegrated.  No longer could I tolerate a workplace, or any environment for that matter, that had been pervaded by fear-based manipulation, power-plays, self-interest and drama.  I found it distasteful and distressing having to be, and interact within, these dense energies of the old 3D paradigm.  I craved a working life and interactions that were based in integrity and openness and gentleness and decency, and so when the opportunity came to take Voluntary Redundancy I leapt and I never looked back.  The collapse of that old life also enabled me to escape the toxic and limiting projections by other people including those within my own family.  Finally I was free.

So, what were those tests?  For me, those slated challenges played out in relationship breakdowns, losses and betrayal.  There it is.  Betrayal.  Awful word.  You know, I actually feel uncomfortable using that word today because it is so heavily-loaded with dense emotion, trauma energy and judgment.  In truth, I have moved so far forward from all of that experience that it is impossible for me today to access the vastness and the intensity of the emotion I experienced at the time.  I am simply unable to get anywhere near the ballpark in terms of that old drama and what it felt like back then.  Instead, these days I tend to inhabit a relatively neutral, heart-centered, peaceful space and that has become my default setting but it took considerable, cathartic work on myself to get there.  That is not to say that challenges don`t arise, just that the emotion nowadays is no longer formidable and wrecking, just diminished and distant and contained.  This will sound platitudinous but the predominant feeling for me nowadays is one of deep joy and gratitude.  I feel blessed to have experienced those trials because they gave me so much and I`m pleased because – and as some past-life work revealed – there was substantial, heavy karma hanging around those old relationships that needed resolving and clearing, certainly on my side of the ledger anyway.  I needed to learn not to trust quite so readily and I needed to learn how to hold loving boundaries.

What I do still hold from that dark night of the Soul is one persistent and clear memory :  I remember having the palpable feeling that the Universe had me in her palm – that I was cupped and cradled and supported – and I remember this feeling permeating my whole Being.  Before the darkness I had never felt that.  It was both revelatory and supremely comforting because it reassured me there was a Higher intelligence at play in all this and that I would just need to be patient.  I realised later this beautiful feeling had been engendered by the energy of the crystals that I had begun working and meditating with.  Thankfully what I did innately hold was the courage to Love and to keep Loving.  Love was what got me out of bed in the morning ; Love was what kept me going.

The re-structuring – some may call it purification – of the person I used to be constituted a process of Soul retrieval that was both all-encompassing and profound, and was facilitated through extensive Spiritual Healing.  At the time I didn`t​ hesitate or question the need to be undertaking a Healing journey.  I trusted and had faith that this path was absolutely right and what I needed to be doing ;  I held the certainty that the manifestations of old and repeating Timelines needed to be dropped once and for all.

This process of enquiry and examination of self shone a light into the recesses of my subconscious and what I discovered was huge.  The person that was me had a fair chunk missing and this was due to a centuries-old twinning with my mother – we had been twin sisters in a very distant past-life.  Essentially I didn`t know how to be myself and the manifestations of this were plain to see :  the disease to please, feeling the need to climb above the judgment of other women, the inability to withstand criticism and feeling savagely wounded by even the gentlest evaluation, feelings of inadequacy and on it went.  Sure, I had a coveted, well-paid job but there was a great deal about the person I used to be that did not sit comfortably.  And it made sense that I was attracting men who were themselves intrinsically un-whole because on some subconscious level they recognized their own incompleteness in me.  It was all becoming clear.

A word about past-life work here :  it really is not about who you were and what you did in those past-lives.  What is important are the revelations and the insights gleaned from peeping through that window ;  it is the illumination leading to perceptual acuity that is the true Healing gift of this work.  I was like :  “oh wow, that makes perfect sense now” after each of these past-life sessions.  They were like pieces of the jigsaw puzzle and I was hearing each one click firmly into its place.  The past-life work explained many of my character traits, choices and experiences in this incarnation because our Chakras are continuously referencing and directing subconscious information we carry forward from previous incarnations ; our lived experience in this incarnation is contextual to all that came before it.  Accessing past-lives was truly invaluable because it shifted my perception enormously but most significantly it ushered in forgiveness and compassion for those who did the wounding because finally I understood their choices.  Once again, I was free.

These tests and the ensuing journey of awakening brought me home in every sense of the word.  This evolution of consciousness delivered me into a nourishing, self-sustaining, creative and deeply connected state of Being, and one that is aligned to my Truth and to my Highest path in this Earthly existence.  Absolutely nothing is random.  A little digging can uncover a whole lot.

If You Had Everything You Needed How Would Your Life Look?

Book a Healing Session

A couple of weeks ago I was watching a Youtube video and the speaker (a well known and respected teacher and author) posed this very question :  if you had all the wealth and materials you could need for a comfortable life and you had absolutely nothing to worry about, what would you do with yourself?

36CaroleKingTapestry201010

So I contemplated this and pretty quickly my imagination filled with the image above, that of the cover photograph of Tapestry by Carole King.  One of my older sisters had this record when it came out in the early seventies.  I was charmed by the photo then and it captivates me still.  Back then when I was maybe seven or eight I remember gazing at this image and feeling very drawn in to this lady`s world.   To my young eyes she seemed safe and steady and kind.  I imagined that the big window was high up in a tall building and that she could look out over bustling city streets (though in reality this was not the case) and I especially loved that the person taking the picture of this famous singer wanted her cat in the shot with her.  I was completely drawn into the frame by the cat looking straight at me.  (album released 1971, photograph taken by Rock photographer Jim McCrary).

Cut to 45+ years ahead and I still love this shot.  It invites the viewer to create a sweeping narrative around it purely because it is so lovely.  Sure, she is our incomparable Carole but if I look past the identity and the stellar accomplishments and just notice the woman and appreciate the detail :  minimal if any makeup, hair loose and flowing, lived-in jeans.  The simplicity of this shot conveys so much.  The scene feels effortless and uncontrived, devoid of fuss and complication.  There is a sanctity to it.  It feels to me a space where no difficulty, no instability, no conflict exists, instead it is a haven replete with love, contentment and bliss.  I see a person deeply settled, whole and free of illusion, a woman nourished by her creative essence as expressed in the handwoven tapestry she holds, ensconced in her creativity and removed from the drudgery of the mundane everyday.  To me she radiates a beautiful vibe of forgiveness and acceptance.  She has weathered her storms, this girl, but her catharsis has delivered her into a place of quiet, self-sustaining strength.  Self-possessed and sovereign she knows exactly who she is.

For me, the tapestry she holds represents the richness of her lived experience – the lessons learned and wisdom gleaned.

Last but not least it is still the cat that really hooks me in, chilled-out like a zen master and staring straight down the lens, engaging the viewer and lending this photograph a disarming appeal.  Truly an enchanting picture.

If I wanted for nothing and I lived without shackle to the matrix of money this is absolutely how my life would look and feel.  Without a doubt.

How would yours look?
