13 Spiritual Benefits of Chocolate

There’s a Spiritual use for Chocolate?

Yes.  This is what I discovered after arriving in Guatemala at 11.11 on 11/11/12 on a synchronistically delayed flight greeted not only by these (very significant) numbers but also by 4/5 bolts of lightning.  A sign that this was probably not going to be just some ordinary journey!!  My visit was also synchronised with the important dates of 12/12/12 and 21/12/12; the end of the Mayan calendar and a 26,00 year cycle much celebrated and talked about worldwide.  The end of the world … as we know it, and the beginning of a new one.

After arriving in Guatemala, spending time in Antigua which is really beautiful and a world heritage centre, intuition guided me to Lake Atitlan, a haven of healing portals in the Highlands of Guatemala.

I had no idea why I was there and yes, fear did creep in, but no sooner had I transmuted by asking my favourite question; ‘What would I love’ when I met a wonderful lady who told me about ‘The Chocolate Shaman’ and his work; that was on day one, day two I attended my first ceremony.

Chocolate is The Bean of the Gods

Anyway, to cut a looong story short, I discovered that the Ancient Mayans and Aztecs used Chocolate for Spiritual and Ceremonial purposes.  I spent a couple of months going to Ceremonies and learning about chocolate and surrendering to the ‘stuff’ clearing gentle, powerful ways of this Spirit.  Since then I am honoured to continue to build a strong connection with ‘The Spirit of Cacao’ as a powerful teacher, facilitator and guide.  The Chocolate Shaman connected with the Spirit of Cacao nearly 10 years ago and she told him that Cacao is as ‘The Food for the Shift’; this started his journey of discovery.

My experiences since then, 9 months ago, can confirm that Chocolate truly is the food for the shift.  I now run ceremonies throughout the world using my Shamanic tools from a 13 year professional adventure into the unknown, raising the mists of my own beliefs and assumptions.  I’ve been creating the life I love and guiding others to not only creating a life THEY love but teaching others about the magical secrets of alchemy and the elixirs of life!

The use of Chocolate has taken my work and the results in others lives to another level.  It creates a beautiful cauldron of love, allowing what needs to be released to transmute allowing more room for extra doses of light, love and magic.  Something we can all benefit from in these powerfully changing times!

During Chocolate Ceremonies, people connect with deep feelings of bliss, love and joy.  They sometimes travel through emotions which are stuck to get there, gaining deep realisations about their purpose, the meaning of life and the direction their soul is calling them to take.

There’s often wondrous ‘aha’ moments on why certain things have been a perceived ‘problem’ and how, in fact, now they can see that it’s their greatest gift.  With this knowledge, the journey forward is more empowered without the old ‘story’ but with a renewed awareness of the gifts they’ve been granted, even through the story! This fresh start often guides them to stepping into their power in a way they’ve never before experienced (often with them using Cacao in their work).

My passion is training others to run ceremonies and to teach the next wave of teachers.  The planet is changing, WE’RE changing and there’s a need for a great number of teachers to be the guides for the rest of the planet.  There are a lot of pain bodies to be soothed and transmuted, and that’s what my purpose is, to train the next wave of teachers.

There’s lots of positive health benefits to chocolate, it’s a superfood, it’s delicious and it’s also an aphrodisiac but I’m going to focus on the spiritual, emotional and mental benefits here.

Since my discovery about the magical uses for Cacao just 9 months ago, I journeyed to Hawaii & Canada where I held Ceremony, but I also journeyed to Costa Rica and I met tribes who still use Cacao for these purposes.  They also use it for initiations for both teenagers and children, and pregnant women.

The Spirit of Cacao was one of the most revered of the ancient Mayan Deities. They called Cacao ‘The water that runs through the heart’, it is a Sacred, Medicinal, Psychoactive, Plant and Theobroma or cacao actually means “Food of the Gods”.

Here are ….. More benefits for Chocolate, taken usually in a ceremonial dose, I recommend pure, ceremonial grade chocolate.  Generally what you can buy in the supermarket has all the good stuff taken out.  Intention is powerful, so set you intention and enjoy!

There are thirteen benefits below, 13 is a powerful number, when the patriarchal power came to the fore, it was ruled as an ‘unlucky’ number but in actual fact it is the number of the Goddess and represents the new world of love being created.

The Magic of Chocolate as a Plant Medicine

1. Cacao opens the heart and allows for a deeper, authentic love based connection.

2. It promotes powerful journeying and connection with our spiritual wisdom.

3. Aids realisation on repeated patterns or blocks which might be preventing us from creating the life we love.

3. Stronger connection with the higher self.

4. Enhanced connection with the truth of ourselves; our divinity.  Chocolate is a powerful facilitator allowing us to delve into our pain, release it so that we can allow more light, love and magic in.

5. Powerful, otherworldly meditation enabling us to connect with our spiritual nature, accessing the wisdom within.  It also makes meditation much easier and more beneficial.  It calms the left brain chatter, and allows us to delve more into that nooo mind bliss space (see point 10).

6. Profound embodiment of new learnings.  Allowing us to feel in our bodies things we know in our head, our mind.

Profound things like that we are all love; love is all there is, it’s all the matters.  We might logically know this, and want to believe it and embody it, but we wonder how to live it and embody it?  Chocolate aids this pathway to bliss.

7. Feelings of oneness, enlightenment and ecstasy.  This results in more love in our lives, as well as a stronger, more familiar connection with our magnificence, oneness and spiritual capacities.

8. More enhanced, balanced male & female energy.  We all have male and female energy within, when these are balanced we live a harmonious life magnetising all we love to us.  This integration also leads to enhanced effectiveness as the divine creators and manifesters which we are in essence.  The balance of male and female energies allows us to receive inspiration AND act on it.

9. Access to the ‘one mind’ or unity consciousness allowing the connection with creative ideas.  With the enhanced male/female balance within, these are then made manifest….

10. More effective, deeper, profound, easier yoga and chi kung practice.  It improves on every level; physical, mental, spiritual, emotional.  This is probably the case with other practices too (aikido, kick boxing etc.) but I have yet to try others.

11. A deeper, stronger connection with ‘the light’, the new, higher dimensions, raising our vibration.

12. Stronger connection with our creative abilities; writing, painting, dancing, music or whatever floats your boat.

13. Cacao is a gentle, powerful feminine force.  It is the force for the new world.  By surrendering to the essence and energy of Chocolate, you can step into the higher dimensions.  It allows a deep Shamanic experience of ‘being in the world but not of it’ or ‘having a foot in both worlds’.

It is all about the messages that the dolphins deliver, the basis of Hawaiian Shamanism… It’s all about FUN and CONNECTION 🙂

This has been communicated to me recently in my own work and thorough witnessing what others are gaining in ceremonies and in one to one sessions.  It facilitates the clearing of deep psychological, emotional, and spiritual blocks.  It allows one to get to the root of any emotion or even any physical ailment, to discover why they have it and in turn feeling the emotion related to it; subsequently healing the original dis-ease and releasing it.

Please feel free to add a comment and assist with more magical benefits.

Mucho aloha!

What Comes After The Law of Attraction?

With tingles all over my body and slowly, gleefully sipping a ceremonial does of cacao I share some magic with you.

2013-02-11 07.05.12

Sunrise Big Island, Hawaii

Life is good. Life is only good because of the learnings, and those learnings came from some really, really painful, tough times and clearing my ‘stuff’. We’re all on an interesting journey as we come more in line with our own divinity.  Keeping that in sight is a very good thing as we experience tough times. Anyway, I digress; I’m writing about the Law of Attraction right?  What’s the LoA got to so with our ‘stuff’’? Well, when we clear out stuff, which we do by facing up to it and really FEELING our emotions, it clears them and we manifest what we love. There’s been a lot of fear around actually being real and feeling our stuff; our fear, pain, anger and other emotions.

The Law of Attraction made big news nearly ten years ago when the movie ‘The Secret’ was launched.  I remember watching it and jumping & dancing around my home celebrating at the message it conveyed.  My partner had been telling me about all this magic, how your thoughts and words create your reality and I must admit, there was a part of me that doubted him.  When I watched the film with its amazing insights and evidence I truly celebrated that it was now out in the mainstream.  As great as ‘The Secret’ was, it also brought up a lot of confusion, doubt and fear for people because they thought that you had to feel amazing all of the time.  If you felt any negative emotions, you’d attract negativity. This is not true and I feel like this is the most important thing to remember as we create the new paradigm.  We MUST feel our feelings to clear them.  Alchemise them.  Otherwise they’re lurking around under the surface in your subconscious creating again, what you don’t love.

Your Magnificence comes from those feelings, as does enlightenment.  There’s no quick route to a blissful life, it’s the journey and it’s through continually allowing yourself to feel your feelings that you get to bliss.  I don’t suggest you drown in them, just be real and allow yourself to feel them.  Neither do I recommend drowning them with things like alcohol, drugs, smoking, busyness, but just start being conscious of them.  There’s SUCH peace underneath those feelings if you simply allow yourself to sit with them.

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” Melody Beattie

If you look at my blog Beliefs & The Power of The Subconscious Mind you’ll see that it’s the subconscious that creates our reality.  So if our negative emotions are tucked away there, then we’ll create more situations where we are given a chance to feel them, so we can clear them.

That’s why those that push our buttons are our best teachers. We must FEEL our emotions, it’s only by feeling them that they can dissipate.  When we bury them, we’re letting them grow and we will only create circumstances in our external world over and over again which will make us feel those emotions.

Once the ‘charge’ around our sadness, guilt or whatever the emotion is disappears, the triggers in our lives will discontinue.  Some people are simply afraid of their feelings, they’re afraid  of their ‘stuff’;  the sadness, crying, anger, or whatever.

As my first Shamanic teacher used to say ‘there’s nothing to fear but fear itself’.  By fearing we’re giving what we’re avoiding more and more power. If our negative ‘stuff’ is left unheeded, it will manifest in our outer reality.  We’re all Masters of the Law of Attraction because we’re all manifesting things we DON’T want as well as those we DO want.

There’s a wonderful process in my blog Love or Fear? click here, if you’ve got some emotions that you’d like to get to unearth, feel and release or if there’s a pattern, situation or emotion that keeps coming up over and over. When you clear your negative emotions, you have room for the juicy high vibrations to create what you DO love.

It takes high pressure and temperature to create a diamond

The Law of Clarity This is the new law; The Law of Clarity, when you’re clear of your ‘stuff’, not being perfect, but not burying your emotions either.  Letting them flow, feeling them.

Then from that space of clarity you can create what you love. Use gratitude for where you are now and what you have; this is the bridge to even more magical outcomes. Let me know how you get on with The Law of Clarity and please feel free to share this post.

I love you!

The Power of Choice

Dear Beautiful,

Remember your power!

In any moment, in any situation, you have the power of choice.

Not always easy, but it is a simple choice

Not always easy, but it is a simple choice

Choose who you spend time with.

Choose how you feel.

Choose your dreams.

Choose your state of being.

Choose what action to take.

Choose how you interpret anything.

Choose whether, or how you react to someone or a situation.

Choose LOVE!

The more you choose to be in love, the more you are being the change you wish to see in the world.

This DOES mean speaking your truth, and being courageous enough to be real with others.  In fact, it’s all about being real; from the motivation of love, rather than fear.

I love you!

From The Heart

Aloha lovely,

I’m so very excited because this is…

The first day of the life I choose…

It’s also the first day I’m using the tools from a wonderful course called ‘Blogging from the Heart’ with Susannah Conway.  I LOVE writing, but I have a juicy little inner critic who always asks me ‘is this the way it’s meant to be done?’  About my inner gremlin; after spending most of my life not conscious of it, then conscious, then berating it, now I love it, we’re friends and I love its little tricks 🙂    As I’ve become conscious of it, I’ve taken the power out of its negativity.  I LOVE blogging because there’s actually no ‘right way’ to do it.  We’re all unique, and blogging gives us a chance to shine and share our ways; there is no right or wrong.

Image

I was drawn to this course because I know that when I speak from the heart it’s truthful communication sometimes with joy, sadness, passion and raw vulnerablity.  At least now, it’s becoming clear to me that that’s my current focus.

So what would I like to share today?

I’d like to offer a gentle stroke of your forehead.  Y’know, we’re experiencing a time on this planet like never before.  Everything is shifting and changing.  What isn’t of light, beauty and love is coming up to be released.

Please be gentle with yourself dear soul, and remember the journey we’re on is like a spiral.

Old patterns WILL come up, but like the spiral of a fern unfurling its fronds towards the light, the spiral gets less and less until all of the fern is in the light.  When you’re in a dark place, know that it’s all part of the process of showing your beauty to the sun and welcome it in.  Darkness doesn’t exist in the sunshine, so shine, baby shine!

I love you Divine Wonder Full Being 😉

Love, light & magic,

Beliefs & The Power of the Subconscious Mind

Like fertile soil, the subconscious takes everything in; it doesn’t discriminate in terms of what’s good or bad; everything goes in! I’ve always been intrigued by the power and capacity of the subconscious.  It takes in 20 million bits of information every second, whereas the conscious mind can only process 40 bits of information a second.  The subconscious can process 500 thousand times more than the conscious mind!

Conscious mind vs Subconscious mind

Conscious Mind vs Subconscious Mind

It would drive you crazy if everything was consciously experienced.  What I find fascinating is that one of the filters consists of your beliefs and assumptions.  Being aware of our beliefs is really important because they colour our world.  If we’re subconsciously focused on a negative belief like ‘I’m powerless’, or ‘I’m not good enough’, that’s what we expect and that’s what shows up in our world because focus creates reality.  Because the subconscious remembers everything; hypnotists and shamanic pracitioners can access it to clear deep problems, blocks, patterns and addictions.  The root of every problem is held there; all of your memories; even down to the colour of the curtains in your bedroom when you were 2 years old (which hopefully wasn’t too much of a problem) is stored therein! 🙂  

Plant seeds of love

I’d like to share an example of a client, I have her permission, but let’s call her Rebecca anyway.  She wanted to get to the root of her lack of success in relationships and the deep pain she constantly felt when she got close to someone.  During a ‘Soul Discovery’ process we remembered an incident when she was 3 and she witnessed her mother and father having an argument after which her father left the house.  She ‘made up’ that the row was directly related to her (when we’re children we believe the entire world revolves around us and everything relates to us).  She believed that her father had rejected and abandoned her which resulted in her having the belief of being unworthy and unlovable; her assumption was that she’d be abandoned and rejected by the masculine.

Consequently, this is what happened over and over in her life.  Either she’d attract men who would reject and abandon her, she’d believe so much that it was going to happen that in the end it did, or even when it wasn’t happening she believed that she was being abandoned and rejected.  This had happened over and over again with men in her life.  You see this is actually a gift, because those we love WILL push our buttons so we grow and learn and release the memory.  This is especially the case with relationships which are forming now; the ‘new paradigm’ relationships.

We can’t create have a sovereign relationship with our old baggage and old world ways of being.  This doesn’t mean we have to be perfect, but the old destructive patterns of control, blame, manipulation etc. are being gently (and sometimes not so gently lol) washed away.  We’re been given the opportunity to see that whatever is showing up in our reality has to do with US and no one else.

So during this very powerful, deep process we explored this incident from the perspective of her higher self (her soul or the spiritual aspect of her).  She realised that the argument between her parents was nothing to do with her. It was a random disagreement and her father had actually just left the house for a few hours to prevent the row from escalating.  This gave her mother time to get out of her ‘pain body’ (to use an Eckhart Tolle phrase) and calm down.  What dawned on Rebecca was that her mother and father  loved each other deeply, but they weren’t very good at feeling it and expressing it.  It was almost as if arguing was their unconscious way of ‘trying’ to connect and get love from the other.  This pattern is showing up a lot in my sessions over the last few years, our parents inability to express love which leads to all sorts of chaos.

Rebecca had had an awareness of her beliefs and patterns before this session, but seeing it from the higher perspective allowed her to feel deep sadness at having held onto the belief for so long, this was then transmuted into love.  With that awareness she was able to really feel it on the physical level.  She could literally feel, in her body how she had continually created feelings of rejection and abandonment.  Before she’d just been aware of it in her head, but she got it on a deep, cellular level.  Once she had this realization, it stopped the pattern, because it was all made up.  She could also see how it was all divinely planned so she could learn this lesson.  Rebecca is now in a wonderful, sovereign relationship with the man of her dreams and coaches others.  This man may at some point abandon or reject her (before even if her partner went away for a day she’d feel deep pain, rejection & abandonment), but now, she doesn’t have the same buttons, so she won’t react and subsequently feel the pain she felt before.

“Until we know the assumptions in which we are drenched, we cannot know ourselves.”  Adrienne Rich

“Until we know the assumptions in which we are drenched, we cannot know ourselves.” Adrienne Rich

I think I know my pattern, now what? 

Having an awareness of your beliefs and assumptions is really important because that allows you to take the power out of them.  We attract our reality depending on what we’re making up. I don’t recommend trying to change your beliefs.  When we try to change our beliefs, the focus is still on them.  For instance, someone with an ‘I’m not good enough’ belief might be a perpetual student, or a high flyer to try and prove that they ARE good enough.  By trying to change that belief, the focus is still on the belief so they try and try, and still they feel ‘not good enough’.  It’s like the flowerbed, we’re still focusing on the weeds and giving them energy.

Where’s The Power?

If you use the example of shareholders in a company, if you’ve got 51% of the shares, you’ve got power in the company.  The same with our focus, if 51% (or more) of your focus is on a belief, then that’s got the power and you manifest the belief, rather than what you love.

I used to use affirmations for years but the more I said “I love and approve of myself” or words to that effect I was actually still focusing on being unworthy and of not loving myself so I’d end up totally depressed! You don’t see Richard Branson or the like saying ‘Each and every day I’m getting better and better’, he just does!  I’d also like to add here that Richard’s favourite pastime is daydreaming, he doesn’t just dream though, he takes action on his dreams (rather than on his beliefs).  His power and focus are not on his beliefs.

This is the key… it’s what you take ACTION on that creates your reality, if you take action after your thoughts of ‘I’m not worthy’ then that’s what you manifest………

The Key Is….. CREATE!

Focus your attention on a higher vibration and CREATE, CREATE, CREATE what you love!  Focus on your life purpose.  When you’re doing what you love, this automatically results in making a difference in the world.  Whether you’re an artist, a teacher, a therapist or whatever, when you’re doing what you love, you’re focusing on a higher structure, you’re creating and your focus is on your heart; your treasure.  Rather than seeking outside of you like the character in ‘The Alchemist’ you realise that your treasure is within.

CREATE

CREATE!

Even More Magic

Something magical happens when you’re not trying to change your belief and you’re focussing on creating what you love, fulfilling your life purpose.  You realise you ARE powerful, you are capable; lovable and worthy of everything you love.  Whatever your belief was, you realise it’s absolute codswollop, it’s sooo not true! It takes will to focus on what you would love, the higher and lower vibrations are always competing but the highest vibration will always win.  When you’re in service to a higher purpose, the higher wins. It takes will to stay focussed on what you’d love, rather than your beliefs.  It’s like going to the gym, you don’t go once and think that’s it for the rest of your life, it’s like a muscle, it takes practice and exercising it over and over again.

I love you, wonderful human being 😉

How many times have I said this recently ‘these are very powerful times’….

Spiritual Ibiza moments on Costa Rican beach :)

Spiritual Ibiza moments on Costa Rican beach 🙂

It seems like everyone around me seems to be shifting something or other; whether on a physical or emotional level.  I remember a Shamanic teacher telling me years ago when I was a little more cynical than I am now, that everything that manifests on the physical has an emotional reason behind it.  I believe this wholeheartedly now!  This is why it’s such an important time to be gentle with ourselves.  If you feel like resting, or you’re meant to be doing something and it simply doesn’t resonate, don’t do it!  Follow your heart is the most important thing to do at the moment (as always)!

The Power of Now

The Power of Now

Often it’s not the area that usually creates challenges that’s coming up now, it’s a completely new area.  It’s like we’ve got a testing portal for the next few days to use the magic tools we know work on whatever we’re dealing with.

What are the tools that work?

Well, its different for everyone but what’s always worked for me and what seems to be working for clients and friends are:

* Meditation

* Embracing whatever we perceive as our ‘negative’ stuff

* Exercise

* Stop needing to know i.e. SURRENDER (meditation helps with this)

* Let go, allow the bigger vision to unfold

* Sleep when needed

* Have faith in your vision (and expand on it)!

* Have FUN!

Time in nature... sooo needed right now

Time in nature… sooo needed right now

What’s apparent is that the decks are being cleared so that there’s room for the life we haven’t even dreamt of to manifest.  Often we’re so stuck on how we THINK things should unfold that we get in the way of the bigger dream.  This is apparent more now than ever as the dimension we’ve been operating in shifts.  This new dimension we’re moving into is to do with our hearts, love and how we perceive things.  It’s like we’re all going through a big detox, letting go of old beliefs, ways of operating and stuff that doesn’t bring us happiness!
What I’m seeing when I give readings is that whatever is/has been causing people concern, worries pain etc. has been perfectly orchestrated so that they learn lessons.  Then they can feel a new level of humanness, humility, self love and joy.  Sometimes this is just a glimpse or a little window of a vision into their new life.  This gives way to the birth a new, brighter, clearer, new world which is beyond anything we have even dreamt of.

Unless the previous pain worry strife or whatever had occurred it wouldn’t have allowed them to lay the foundations for what is now being created.

As we’ve been shifting over the past few years EVERYONE has been saying there’s a divine plan in action, I’ve heard this so many times.  Of course this could have been my perception but I’ve always heard a level of hope, a tiny amount of concern but a large amount of grounded hearty excitement when people have said this.

This is what we need to hold onto as we proceed to creating more and more of our new world of love; grounded hearty excitement because I now know for sure that there IS a divine plan unfolding.  I am certain of this, co created by us the Divine Creative Beings that we are.

That’s why it’s sooo important to do the things that nourish your soul.  After all, it’s our soul which is leading the way!

Bliss Be With You 😉

Greetings from paradise!  My American visa time ran out, luckily synchronized with a fascination with island fever, which I duly caught.  I bid farewell to Hawaii, and as I climbed the steps of the plane a phoenix appeared (literally) on every step to bid me farewell (the writing on the steps, probably an advertisement of some sort, actually said ‘Phoenix’.  Lol.  Next step Costa Rica which out of everywhere on the planet was the only place  intuition gave the thumbs up to (thanks sis star M for tuning in with me sooo beautifully & accurately)!  I allow my intuition to guide me every step of the way in my life, when it comes to a big decision like this though, I double up with a friend or my coach who’s done the same training as me.  Again, it was brilliant guidance…

 My ego has been having a field day because it wanted to know the whys, hows and wheres of my plans (of which there were none).  Since I arrived in Costa Rica my intuition has been laying trails of ‘synchromagic’ which is resulting in a really beautiful time.

I’m fascinated by this intuitive journey.  I was soul guided to Guatemala last year and I had a spectacular time there, followed by LA and then Hawaii.  Every step intuitively guided, and every step sooo perfect for my soul.  I now trust my intuition 100%.  I’ve had more, new, out of the blue creative ideas here in Costa Rica in the last couple of weeks than ever before in my life.  I’ve been creating programs and attracting lots of new, wonderful clients.  I even have a finish date for my book (which I KNOW I’ll stick to).  I’ve been learning lots about magical Cacao.  I’ve been visiting local farms and museums, learning about the production of Cacao and its importance on many levels going back several generations.  I’ve made new friends, met up with old friends (who I didn’t even know were in Costa Rica) and I even have a vague idea of my future plans (which include a book launch) and sooo much more!

My mind (ego) still tries to find things to get its teeth into and worry about and at times I still find myself thinking that maybe my new location isn’t conducive to a smooth running, successful business… of course, that’s codswollop, as my current reality shows me. 🙂  Always check into your current reality, it is perfect feedback of your focus!

I’ve also come to a point where I’m integrating a few months of intense growth (thanks to my wonderful sis star pointing this out); if not a lifetime’s worth (lol)!  I feel like SUCH a changed lady.

In my most recent blog I shared how repeated patterns had been coming up and I’d been experiencing really deep pain.  This pain has come up in all my close relationships with men I’ve had deep heart connections with.

With the use of Cacao I was able to shine the light on my shadow, become aware of my patterns and lack of self love which allowed me to let in sooo much more light and love as I release the shadow, darkness, density or whatever you’d like to call it.  The shadow is not something to be afraid of, it’s simply the part of us we’re unaware of, what we haven’t seen, what we haven’t shone the light on.  Until we DO shine the light on it it will cause us pain & grief in our lives.

Worrying is a waste of our imagination, if you'd like to create a new world of love, YOUR new life of bliss, IMAGINE it!

I feel so grateful as I bask in the afterglow of my most recent spiral of learning.  

Not only did I learn LOADS which I’m sharing with others, but I don’t feel like I’ve EVER been so much in love with myself…  This is attracting some very juicy life experiences.  I keep saying this, but when we clear our internal world, our external world shifts to meet that.  It’s NEVER about the other person or external circumstances.  

Gandhi knew the importance of this, he said; “We must be the change we wish to see in the world”.  

What I’ve found recently from this experience and working with clients is that, underneath it all it’s our inner child that needs love and attention.  We can do this by imagining him/her, letting an age come automatically, embracing the little one and checking in and chatting with them.  I do feel that our ego is simply our little inner child who needs love and attention.  Ponder on that.

Our negative beliefs can create a reality we don’t love.  When I work with clients this is something we focus on.  It’s really important to be aware of our beliefs as they can create a reality which doesn’t serve us.  When I bring clients to a realization about their beliefs, I feel like a midwife taking them through the birth canal again to a rebirth.  Even though it only takes a few moments, because we’re clearing decades of programming, even lifetimes – it can be an intense process, but when we surrender, it can take seconds!  Once the realisation of how a belief has played out in our lives, for instance one like ‘I’m not worthy’ can create the repeated pattern of feeling unworthy of love….  It’s not encouraged to look at this stuff, especially in some ‘new agey’ circles.  We’re told that we’ve got to stay on a high vibration and not think negatively.  I strongly disagree with this because ‘attention goes where energy flows’, so even if we’re desperately trying to ignore our negative thoughts and our ‘stuff’, where’s the energy?  It’s still subconsciously focused on what we’re avoiding!

When we face up to it, when we SEE it with awareness, we free up that energy.  

Then we can focus on what we’d love to create and create that rather than continue to create what we don’t love…  When we are focussed on our belief, that shows up!

As we’re creating the new world, we are in a portal where we have the opportunity to clear our ‘stuff’.  In fact it’s imperative we do so as we’re moving into a time of powerful manifestation; a new world of light and love.  We need to clear our beliefs and patterns so that we CAN manifest what we love.

This is what I LOVE about my current adventure, no sooner do I have a (light) thought about something I wish for and it manifests!  It’s actually comedy, I do feel like I’m living a life totally created by me and that thank goodness all the work I’ve done on myself is paying off.  I decided to treat my life like an adventure a few years ago and see if this s**t works… (the ‘Soul Discovery’ modalities I teach).  I’m glad to say they do, and very beautifully too!

I love you!

Happy Soul Discovering!
