Forgiveness……

‘Forgiveness sets me free, to love and live again’

Forgiveness, now there is a word most of us struggle with. We hold on to hurt, anger, grievances and grudges. We sometimes feel that if we forgive someone, then we are letting them get away with hurting us, by what they did or didn’t do. But the truth is that forgiveness is about setting us free, and letting go of past hurt and pain.

When we bury our pain or past, it doesn’t go away. It lurks in the background, just waiting to resurface and cause mayhem and even more pain. By facing the pain and going through it, we can come to a place of forgiveness. We are then able to move on in our lives, and build fruitful and loving lives.

If we can view life in terms of us being here as spiritual being who have chosen to come to the earth at this time, to live, love, and to experience as much as we can, in order to learn and grow. Then surely forgiveness is an important part of our lives here.

When you forgive it releases you from the past. When you forgive others you also forgive yourself, because all of us seek forgiveness. To forgive is to live and love again, with freedom, joy, and growth.

Time……..

‘Time is the biggest illusion of all’

Time is the biggest illusion of them all. Because time doesn’t exist. We spend our lives rushing around, going from one place to another. Always feeling that we never have enough time. We have to cram everything into our lives, just in case. But the truth is that we will never run out of time.

Wouldn’t it be lovely to just slow down, and take the time to really smell the flowers. To look around you, and see how beautiful our world really is. To stop for a moment to smell the air on a beautiful autumn day.

If you knew that you could never run out of time, that you will never not exist. Would it change the way you lived your life? Would you stop rushing about? Would you spend more time with the people that you love? Would you find the true meaning of yourself, just by being you?

Time is like a flowing river, there is no start, there is no end. Just a continuous flow of water, where it goes who knows. The river never stops flowing, and neither do you.

Wake Up……..

‘Wake up to the Truth of the Lies’

We come to this earth as spiritual beings. Our purpose here is to have a human experience, and part of that experience is to wake up to who we are. It is not enough to remember and understand, we need to experience life, in all it’s flaws, to really grasp and learn our life lessons for spiritual growth.

But life is full of artificial distractions, that want to stop you from realising your true self. We live lives in an external fashion. Always looking outside of ourselves for validation of who we are. We become addicted to social media, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat. We chart our lives on an artificial platform, taking selfies in different poses, hoping to find meaning in our lives, and to make sense of them.

When we really believe and accept our reason for being here, it becomes easy to remember that this reality is just an illusion. A made up stage of our own production. We are the players, and we decide what parts we play. Some parts are joyous, and other parts are dark. But at the end of the production we get to go home, to our real home. So knowing all this, doesn’t it make sense to rejoice in the limitless possibilities of life. And to not be bogged down by fear and trepidation of the life we are living.

Taking risks is what life is all about. And not settling and staying comfortable because it is the easy route. Sometimes we have to get comfortable being uncomfortable. We control our destiny to a point. So isn’t it better to have lived and lost, than to never have lived at all. Our lives are like meandering paths. It doesn’t matter what path you take, because, although our experiences are different, the end result is the same. And all paths lead back to source.

Fear is restricting, but love liberates. Choose love every time, and make heart based decisions, based on what you want to achieve in your life. Dare to be really you, because that is why you are here. The power always lies within you. Look up from the screen and see the world around you. Connect with yourself first, and then with others, and see the beauty in all things. And remember why you came here, to live, to experience, to love, and to wake up to the divine blessing that you are.

I Trust The Universe……

‘Despite not knowing the journey, and where it leads, I embrace it’

Sometimes life can be confusing. We have no idea where we are heading. It takes a leap of faith to trust in the universe. To know that the universe really does have your back, even if you can’t see or feel it. It takes courage to have unwavering faith, in a power greater than yourself. To keep going, even when you can’t see where you are going.

It’s the difficult times, or when we are living in fear not love, that trusting in the universe really matters. Because it is when life is hard, and scary, and confusing, that the universe teaches us to learn and grow. Many times in my life I have wanted to give up. I would be angry with myself for coming back to this earth. I would think, why would I want to come back here to go through all that pain. But when I reflect back on periods of my life, I see it was necessary to experience certain things, however painful they may have been.

2019 has been a year of real transformation for me. I have changed so much, than I thought was possible. I have had to deal with things that I have put off for years. And at times I have thought how do I carry on. I have had many dark periods over the last 12 months. And I have also had many beautiful periods over the last 12 months. And as I reflect back, I can see that the universe always had my back. I just needed to learn to trust, that everything happens for a reason, and everything will be ok.

As I move into 2020 in a few weeks time, I am actually filled with a profound sense of positivity. I do not know why, but there is a shift in the universal energies. I feel energies, so I know things are different. And I know other healers feel it too. I trust in the universe, to show me the way, I can’t see it right now, but I embrace it.

Keeping The Light Shining…

‘Integrity turns the light on’

To be a open and honest channel for loving healing energy, I have to keep the light shining within me. And that means I live a life that is simple, basic and without drama, whenever possible. I spend my days working, walking, painting, talking, listening to music, connecting with spirit, and thinking. I think a lot. At least an hour of my morning is sat in my wicker chair by the wood burner. It is a place where I can really connect with spirit. I receive so much information and inspiration sat in that chair. Mainly about work, life and what to write.

Mostly my life revolves around my spiritual work, and my spiritual practices. I didn’t intend it to be that way, it just happened. When it was suggested to me many years ago that I was a Healer, I never realised then what my life was to become. It just feels so natural now, and because of that I have to make sure that I keep my vibration really high, and not to allow anyone or anything to dim my light. Without the light I can’t work, I can’t feel or sense the energies, and I can’t hear spirit.

At sometime during my day I will do a meditation. I like to listen to ‘I am’ Wishes Fulfilled by Wayne Dyer. It is a beautiful meditation that really touches my soul. As soon as I start to listen to it, I feel the energies of my guides all around me. By the time the 40 minutes is up, I feel uplifted and illuminated. And I always feel like I have received a healing session from my guides.

Being out in nature keeps me very grounded. There is something really wonderful about going for a lovely walk surrounded by nature. I love walking in the mountains, by the ocean, or in woods and forests. There is something about the smell of clear mountain air, or the saltiness of the ocean breeze, or the earthy smell of wooded areas, that just fill my heart and soul with peace and light. When I am filled with light I know that I am living an honest and authentic life. Because integrity is what turns the light on.

New Beginnings……

‘Every new day gives us the opportunity to change things’

Every new day can be a ‘New Beginning’ if we want it to be. We can change the things we don’t like, we get to choose what we want, and who we want to be. Our lives are not set in stone, but our minds can be. We have the power within us to change our lives, if only we would realise that. Our belief systems, and our self limiting beliefs can cripple us.

If only we realised that our thoughts control everything. Then every new day brings endless possibilities of growth and change. We are the ones in control, change your thoughts, change your life, ‘The thoughts I choose create the live I live’. It is not about living a perfect life, but an imperfect one, that brings you joy, and fulfilment, and is authentic.

Everyday I get to choose how my day pans out. Every morning I sit in my wicker chair by the wood burner. Mug of tea in hand, I reflect on the previous day. Did I go walking with Gracie, did I meditate, was I a kind loving soul, and so on. I spend a lot of time sitting in that chair, contemplating life. I can lose many hours sat in that chair. It is a place that is calm and peaceful, sat there looking out at nature. It is a place that helps me to evaluate my life, and work on the parts of me and my life that require change.

Every new day allows us to make small changes to our lives. Small slow changes, that over time create lasting change, and movement towards the lives we wish to create. So actually, what a wonderful gift we have been given everyday – the gift of ‘New Beginnings’.

Looking Back …….

‘Looking back shows me how far I have come, and how I got here’

It’s hard sometimes to look back on a life that has been before. I try not to do it too often, but sometimes I do take a peak. Just to remember how I got here. When you look back you can see the patterns and the sequences of life. The love, the joy, the pain, and the mistakes. Mistakes I’ve made a few, many, many mistakes. And too many failures I care to mention. But if you aren’t failing, you aren’t trying. Failure is the foundation of success. When I fail it moves me closer to who I am.

As I get older the realisation of our lives, and why we are here is self evident. We go from experience to experience, good and bad. We never stop growing or learning. By looking back and reflecting we can see what area of our lives needs work, and what area of our lives is looking pretty good. When I am going through a difficult experience, I ask myself ‘What do I need to learn from this’. And when I am going through a lovely experience, I ask myself ‘What am I being taught about love’.

If you could see your whole life from start to finish would you change things? I wouldn’t change a thing, because I am who I am. What I have gone through in this life time was meant to teach me how to be kind, loving and compassionate. And it has certainly done that. When I look back on my life, I think to live is to love, and to love is what wakes us up.
