I was tuning into my Mindscape workshop, and part of the process is going through a nature scene. The scenes represent aspects of the subconscious mind, so it is a great way to get extra information about life.
As soon as I went into my nature scene a galloping horse ran past me. I immediately jumped on without thinking about it, and held on for the wild ride. I felt the immense power of the horse beneath me, the muscles contracting and extending, the heat and smell of the body as it reached it's maximum potential. I was gripping tightly to the hair beneath my hands, maintaining my balance, determined not to fall off.
The horse stopped and i dismounted. I asked the horse 'What is your name?'
'I am Destiny, the Spirit Horse' the horse said
'Do you have any advice for me?' I asked
'Hang on, Keep your balance, Enjoy the ride' Destiny replied
Sometimes opportunities present themselves, and I often get a little hesitant. Having had some limitations in the past, I have a tendency to ask 'Am I able?'. When I was younger I often asked that question, but I became very bold in my 20s and travelled solo through many countries. I was pretending, I had a good mask stapled on top of everything and I did a good job of it.
Health challenges bought the insecurities and lack of confidence back up to the surface and I have been gradually working through them during the past years.
There is a difference between 'I think I can' and 'I know I can'.
Sometimes you've just got to hop on and enjoy the wild ride.
A few years ago I was having lots of problems with Electromagnetic Frequencies: wifi zones, sensitivity to computers and phones. A friend suggested getting an Earthing mat, so I purchased one. I found it made a subtle but significant different to my overall health. My husband used to get lots of electrical twitches while he was going to sleep, and was often a restless sleeper. After sleeping with the earthing mat all of that stopped.
The Earth has it's own natural frequency called the Schumann Resonance. Human bodies have evolved in contact with the Earth, and it is only recently that we have become so disconnected. Through concrete floors, rubber soled shoes, and other frequencies in our environment. When we are in contact with the Earth, the theory is that it gives us a unlimited supply of negative free electrons, which help stabilise free radicals in the body. I notice less fatigue and pain when I sleep on the mat.
The Schumann Resonance has been fluctuating regularly, and it is a great idea to ground daily to make sure you are in sync with the Earth. It is a bit like jumping up and down on a trampoline and making sure you are in sync, rather than getting double bounced (which can result in emotional and mental chaos).
So what are some other useful ways to ground? We can ground physically and also mentally using our thoughts.
There are other metaphysical reasons why it is such a good thing to ground, but all of the above are good food for thought.
If you have any other suggestions or favourite ways to ground, I would love to hear them.
Self acceptance has been a struggle for me most of my life, and I see it as a consistent theme within client's sessions. It is probably our shared resonance of this issue which draws these specific clients to me in the first place. The Law of Resonance, like attracts like.
I always saw myself as ugly, flawed, geeky, not cool enough, too fat, too much of everything and not enough of anything. Years of travelling and working in certain industries revolving around image and success didn't help the situation.
I even left a job once because the boss said I laughed too much. So not only was my self acceptance lacking within, but the outside world was also reflecting and pushing the button about how unacceptable I was. Even when I was laughing I was unacceptable. What an absolute crock of bullshit!
Thank goodness I found BodyTalk, as I got myself into a right state within body and mind. I created for myself a lot of illness, mental and physical through rejection of my core nature which is joyful, loving and fine just as it is, even when challenging emotions pop up. Yes, I am an emotional, passionate women that likes to ask 'Why?'.
The horses have taught me a lot about just BE-ing, allowing yourself to BE just as you are regardless of form, or emotional state. This is a powerful lesson to learn, especially when emotions arise which are painful, distressing and unwanted. To learn to sit and be with whatever is coming up, is to discover a sense of peace, presence and inner depth.
How often are we truly honest with ourselves? It is so easy to see lack of honesty in others but coming to terms with our own lack of self honesty can be very revealing. Lightworkers are renowned for being amongst the most self honest people on the planet, but does the journey ever end? Does our ego have the power to trick us into believing that we are being honest when we are really pulling the wool over our own eyes?
I was born with strong beliefs around honesty and integrity, but there are areas that I am aware of that I cower from, because I know I am lying to myself. The times I check my phone while driving after judging others for doing so. The time that I bought myself a sports bra and told myself I will start fitness bootcamp but never showed up. The little tasks and goals I set myself that don’t get done.
All of these indicate a lack of self honesty, and Honesty is the first Principle in the Master Lightworker Practitioner Course. Although I have just started studying the course, I have been a BodyTalk Practitioner for many years, and i have well and truly embarked on the process of unravelling and discovering what I AM, and most importantly what I am not.
There are a sequence of events that are laid out in the MLP course. The first steps are increasing self awareness around areas where honesty is lacking, and then connecting with spirit to ask for guidance on how to deal with this issue. Once the path of awareness in self honesty has been opened up, the next important step on the journey is to share it with others.
This is the process of true spiritual alchemy, what Carl Jung called ‘Finding the gold within the shadows’. In my personal journey I have found true power exists through reclamation, ownership and sharing that which is unpleasant and uncomfortable within.
Another integral process in exploring honesty is to ensure that we aren’t using our heightened level of awareness and honesty towards others in unwanted ways, especially when it isn’t asked for. I was recently attending a Holistic Health Wellness Festival, and was chatting to a client who is also a Healer and Lightworker. I remarked that I have been thinking of coming to see him for a session. He then he started tuning in to me and revealing a myriad of problems and issues that needing fixing, and what I needed to do to overcome them.
The whole encounter felt like an invasion of my privacy, and it actually changed my mind about booking in to see him. I am sure he was offering this from a place of good intention, but it certainly felt like my boundaries had been crossed. Just because we can, doesn't mean we should. This interaction moved me towards an inner reflection of times throughout my life that I may have done anything similar. The big learning from this was to ensure the I always move with respect and observe boundaries when speaking with honesty. What are your reflections on Honesty?
Like a bird we fly
Soaring above our troubles and earthly worries
Spreading our wings into the deep unknowing
Trusting we will be supported by the buoyancy of space
Revealed as fragile beings with gossamer wings
Daring to Live, to Dream, to Surrender
To the not knowing, the unknown, the deep rest of trust..
What is your vision?
I'd like to share my vision for the future.
A future focused on bringing balance to people's lives through my Bodytalk and horse work.
Creating a place where people and animals can come together to heal and find JOY.
A rediscovery of the childlike delights of the soul, while we all give ourselves the gift of happiness on a regular basis.
My dream also has to be self sustainable, to heal the deep wounding around money, worthiness and divine feminine healing work, so that we can become a beacon of light for those in need.
Of course my dream involves horses, adventure and balanced living.
Are you unsure about what this life is all about?
These are words I hear from clients on a regular basis
'I don't know why I am here?'
'I don't want to be here anymore, it is too hard, I want to go back'
'What is the point?'
'What is my purpose?'
'I feel a lot of anxiety on a daily basis'
You are not alone.
I can see that many people are starting to ask these questions in their head, to question their existence and to wonder if there is more to life than what they have been told. Although it might seem like there are a lot of questions unanswered, the process of asking these questions is part of the drive for change. Sometimes change comes with the ending of things, of certain ways of living life, of certain friendships or careers, which can seem catastrophic at the time. This is a necessary process to go through in order to create something new. It is part of the inherent cycles of nature. To create a change towards a more fulfilling life, a simpler life, a life that transcends the limitations of what you've been told life should be like and should be lived.
Part of my purpose is to remind people that on some level they CHOSE to come here and there is a purpose. What that purpose is, is for you to decide. By listening to your inner guidance, by tuning into your experience and discovering the richness inside. Perhaps that purpose is just to BE you, in all your magnificence. It is ENOUGH.
Don't despair, you are not alone. There are many of us, you don't see it in the media, you might not hear it talked about in the small talk, the people that are doing this questioning come in many different forms but the wave of change is rising.
