Time for pause.

 

And the retrograde is over! Besides a few days of residual effects everything shall return to it's normal soon enough. So what did we learn this time around? What did you let go of? What did you learn to welcome? As the mental confusion lifts a better amount of clarity will come to the surface along with a desire to figure it all out. I felt this retrograde deeply. I know that I go on about them but I figured out years ago that these particular planetary shifts seem to have a big effect on me and unsurprisingly also affecting those who are on a similar path. This week is all about journalling for me and figuring out what has shifted. I know on a deep level I am different. Like a jig saw that has been pulled apart and put back together again, only I feel like I've been put back together with a few extra pieces in there somewhere. The shifts have been subtle but I know that's only the beginning. This is now the fun part of what retrograde brings, the cleansing is over and now it's time to see what grows in it's place. What's true is that nothing will be quite the same for any of us.

 

 

I plan to recommit to my yoga practice and journalling practice over the next few weeks to ensure that my mental well being is taken care of. I know that there is a lot of talk in our culture right now about mental health and I advise that you listen to every little bit of it. Mental health, like physical health is something that needs to be cultivated. You can't just go to the gym once and expect to lose 3 stone. The same as you can't do self care once a month and expect to feel amazing. You have to do a little bit every day. Some of you who suffer with mental illness have a tougher road to follow and the daily commitment to self care may be all you have some days. Either way, keep trying. If you didn't look after yourself too well today, start again tomorrow. All of us live busy lives and carving out time for yourself is becoming increasingly tough so why not boil it down to just dedicating yourself to making a start. What is the one thing you can do for your mental health? For me, right now, it's yoga. Just 15 to 20 minutes a day, at the end of my day helps me, so that's where I'm starting.

 

 

If I were to sit down and list all the things I'd like to do for my self care routine then I'd stress myself out in trying to do them. Kind of the opposite of what I'm trying to achieve right? So why not just choose one? Maybe for you it's running, maybe it's reading a book in a coffee shop on your lunch break, maybe it's going to bed earlier? Whatever it is choose something this week and follow through. You won't get it right every day, you may even miss a few days but like I said, you can always start again tomorrow. We've all just been through a big energetic shift and whilst I don't want to create drama around what's happened I also don't want to undermine the changes we have all just faced within ourselves, even if we can't label what they are at the moment. Right now, and I would say for the next month or so it's a good time to reflect. So much change is coming, politically, economically, culturally that we need to reaffirm our relationship to our sense of dignity and to where we stand within who we really are. The energy that we just passed through will manifest soon, so let's choose to focus on our growth.

The sacred mother.

 

 

Every day my routine is the same. After my self care routine which ranges from morning yoga to seeing how much coffee I can get into my body I do the dutyful son bit and make sure I call my mum. If you follow my facebook feed then you'll know I always answer the phone “Hello, fat ass anonymous!”, to which my mum replies with an expletive. I also do this every time the house phone goes because my mum is the only one that calls me on the house phone. It's a joke between us although it was less funny that one time a police woman called to talk about local crime... anyway, the point is, I have a friendship with my mum as well as a mother son bond. She was incredible when I was growing up of creating an environment where I felt like I could be myself. Even on those few moments where I pushed the envelope like coming home with bleached hair, pierced, leaving the house house all dressed in black wearing a dog collar ( anyone remember my goth days? ). Then of course coming out of the closet, being a psychic and choosing to live a creative life I can honestly say that even though my mum didn't understand my choices ( neither did I half the time ) she always made me feel safe in the making of them. I am who I am because of the care of my mother.

 

 

The power of mothers is not lost on anyone. Long after we have become adults your mums voice stays with you. She is the guide to your morality and I believe that mothers have a lasting impact on a childs relationship to their own sense of dignity. You may grow beyond who your mother makes you but that part of your inner child will always be more defined than most. When it comes to mothering and motherhood ( which I don't define as exclusive to women ) it is so impactful that I am always surprised as to why we don't invest in deconstructing it. How your mother talks to you in always the first voice that you use to talk to yourself. Learning about that very intimate and delicate entanglement is working within you right now I think is essential to helping you create a richer life for yourself. Imagine you loved yourself as much as your mother does? Imagine making a study of you as much as your mother did/does? The strength of mothers and mothering is something that I personally believe can change the course of humanity but first lets make room within ourselves for that transformation and level of love to become dominant.

 

 

I don't want this blog to be just about how much I love my mum, even though it kind of is. I want you to really take some time and think about how that level of love, when given to the self can deeply impact your life and it's trajectory. It's a lot more difficult that we first expect. Firstly seperate the personality and history of yoru mum with the love that she brought to the table. How would that level of love impact your life today? How would you change? What would you protect yourself from? What would you give to yourself? When that love is turned inward firstly it can't help but radiate outwards. When you love yourself with the delicate and intent nature of a mother you root yourself so squarely in the space of love that you end up helping everyone around you. Take some time to think on this. Pamper you. Fall in love with you. Then, as you rise you will, in the space of love, take everyone willing to rise with you.

Dealing with self doubt.

 

I love quiet mornings. Stu is fast asleep upstairs catching up on all the sleep that hes missed because of work recently and Oscar is curled up with me here by the heater. The house is losing it's morning chill and I am sat here having a natter with you guys. It's this wonderful intake of breath before the days starts. I can smell the rain outside and the streets are quiet. I love yawning into the day. I've always loved rainy days. When I was younger it was the perfect excuse for me to sit on my bed and draw or write without any of the adults around me nattering for me to go out and play. I havent' changed much. A good rainy day for me is still the same. Give me a sketchbook and a cuppa and I'm happy. With it being Easter I thought maybe I should write a blog about rebirth, fertility and renewal but most of you reading this have been amazing at making that a part of your life. I have watched so many of you turn your pain into power and taken the ashes of your life and rebuilt so many amazing things that I don't think you need too much guidance in that field. I think, seeing as we are all making our way through a pretty powerful retrograde that I'll keep on that theme.

 

 

So many of you have felt the power of this shift but in a really positive way. It really has been a reawakening and one that I myself have felt deeply. I was saying to my mother in law yesterday that I just can't seem to stop making and creating. I have this energy that really feels like I've had a light switched on inside my body. I am back to my cardio, back to daily creating, making music, daily writing, all of the pieces of my life that I have had a hard time juggling seem to have slotted into place. I think my main stumbling block has always been self doubt and I've been working on that for a long time and I'm not going to say that this retrograde has helped to take that away but it's definitely helped me to understand that it's something that will always be there. My self doubt always lead to self criticism which always lead to emotional and creative atrophy. Now, even if I hate what I'm making I still keep going. I acknowledge the voice in my head that is born of fear and I keep moving forward. The only two things that stop me are my intuition and any call I feel towards self care. I've learned more clearly than ever the distinction between doubt as a product of fear and an intuitive no.

 

 

Doubt is a part of everyone's life and it's something that I have had to work on for a long time. Its the million “I'm not sure's” that go unchecked when moving forward. It's O.K to have them, it's O.K to question but doubt is the part where you question so much that you actually stop moving forward. As I've said before the language of the Universe is fluid. When you MOVE the Universe reacts. If you go in a direction that is not for you then the Universe will provide a way out. You really are looked after at all times and in all places, you just have to learn to listen to the whispers. For me synchronicities or collaborations with me and the Universe happen every day. I always see numbers that are sacred to me ( 108, 1008, 11.11 ) and I always see white feathers. Yesterday a handful of white feathers blew over the car that me and Stu were in on the motorway towards his parents house! These are all little heads ups from the Universe that things are in alignment, that things are working out. The more you look for them, the more you see them and the more you push yourself out of questioning the intention of the world around you and into the active space of doing. Just keep moving. Action cures doubt so, no matter what direction just take a step!

Have a great week ahead!

Just one thing!

 

The never ending treadmill of things to do is just a part of life these days. Nothing stops. As soon as one thing is over another begins. We live in a world where our attention is pulled in five different directions at once. You might even be catching yourself reading this whilst also doing something else. We've turned multi tasking into a way of life and as you can imagine, the human brain is just not designed to function in that capacity for too long. As a culture we are suffering more burn out, more depression and more apathy. What worries me is the tools we used to cultivate in ourselves to slow down just don't seem to be there in the younger generation or, if I'm honest, in our lives either. We don't seem to have the skill any more to make things simple. To reduce what we have to it's bare bones. So, that's what I want to try and conjure up both within myself this week and hopefully within you too. Mercury retrograde is all about a cleansing period so it's seems the perfect time to distill what it happening in my life down to it's nucleus. With that in mind, ask yourself the question, “What is the one thing that I could do that would have the best impact?”.

 

 

Sit with that question for a bit. Write lists if you're so inclined. Resisit the urge to put twenty things out there, literally just out one down. I am working on that question right now for my spiritual work and my creative work to help remind myself what is important. Like everyone else I get easily distracted and with lists longer than my life I always seem to find myself focused on the fiddly, crappy little bits rather than the things that will really help me serve myself and in turn serve the people in my life. What is the one thing I can focus on that will impact my life? Learning to slow things down, be more present, write the book that is in my heart to write, paint my journey, publish my books, there's so many ideas in my head it's just playing in that area energetically long enough to allow what's really important to myself to call me towards it. This is not the kind of exercise that can be done in a night, let this idea take you with it. What is the one thing that will impact your relationship? What is the one thing that will impact your career? Your home? Your well being? What is the one thing that will improve your life overall? Once you've answered that question for yourself then the next question is obvious, “What is the one step you can take today to move towards it?”.

 

 

I've said many times in many blogs that it's so easy to get lost in a big picture. My entire personal narritive is always rooted in big picture thinking ( right brained! ) so I know what a bugger it can be. Just doing what is infront of you is the best known cure for procrastination and confusion. Just moving your bum can be enough to help you engage with the Universe in a way that she can hear you and pull you in the direction that you need to go in. Don't worry about making a mistake, if you start to veer too far off course the Universe will send you signs. That sinking feeling in your gut is one of them. If you move in the direction that the Universe wants you to go in you'll be surprised at how many synchronicities and collaborations ( sometimes called coincidences ) show up. Spend some time making a decision by all means but once it's been made act upon it. If it's wrong you'll know soon enough. I am in this process myself so feel free to leave your thoughts and ideas below. What do you think is the one thing you need to improve/impact your life current trajectory?

 

 

Have a great week ahead!

Slowing things down.

 

 Over the last few months I have been making an active choice to go slow. Running my business is tiring. Doing what I do is tiring. Also with the 101 other activities that I refuse to give up on the side, my art, my music, my writing, it's so easy to slip into burnout. I figured out a long time ago that I am just a happier human being when I have a goal to work towards, no matter how small. It's also tricky to keep myself on the right path because I love being and feeling productive. I love ticking off a list or having lot's to do but it's just so easy to hit that place where I am wandering around like a machine feeling way too disconnected for my own liking. I know some of you feel or have felt like this and with us living in a society that exhaults work ethic above self care I think it's time we amended our habits. If I really out my mind to it I could probably do 10 readings in a day, in fact, that was normal for me in my 20's at one point. Of course the momentum and energy of my 20's helped, my readings were also shorter and less in depth and I would burn out roughly every 9 months. But, I could do it and I could probably do it now, excpet now I am too aware of what it would cost me to even attempt it.

 

 

Whilst evolving my business one of the first things I did was work out how many readings I could do a week to the best of my ability and still maintain a balance. It was about quality not quantity. The boundary for me is to create an environment where I can do my best work and nurture my soul at the same time. As I grow what I need changes. Recently I've stopped going out to people's houses to do readings, I've found that navigating the energies of people's homes is always a little too intense and I don't thrive. I know I could proably make more money if I did shows and entertainment and all that other stuff that mediums do but it's just never felt right for me. I prefer just sitting with people and connecting, the kind of work that I do is better suited for an intimite environment. Looking back on my business growth it seems that each time I take a step forward it actually helps me to slow the pace of which I do things down. I take my time. I savour the moments of my day. It helps me to be more present and more intuitively connected.

 

 

Bigger and better doesn't always mean busier. Being a success in any capacity doesn't mean having a million things to do each day. You can live the life you want and not kill yourself to get there. Actually slowing things down, taking the time to enjoy the pace of your day connects you more to your spirit. You hear your invitation more clearly. The more I impliment this into all areas of my life the more I just enjoy where I am and what I am doing. There is a “slow” movement happening in america which I read about recently which I loved the idea of but I'm just not sure how practical the whole thing is with the way I live my life. I'm not saying go find a tent and live a life without any concept of time ( I'm also not telling you not to ) but maybe it will help you to find spaces in your life to take things more slowly. To be more connected. Take time off your device and let your mind wander a bit. Take the pressure off yourself and move into a space where you are aware of where you are. See the room you are in. Connect to the people you are surrounded by, take your headphones out and listen to the world for a bit, it just might be saying something to you!

The myth of perfectionism.

 

  Like many other people I wore the label of perfectionist as a badge of honour. I claimed it as the reason I over worked, as the reason I rarely got anything finished and the reason I would get up at night to clean! Perfectionism is actually nothing more than a state of fear. Not only that, it is also often the excuse given to ourselves and others for acts of self violence. We all have standards, some of which we deem higher than others. And perfectionism is part of the chorus of voices from the ego that perpetuates the feeling of not being good enough. We push ourselves to exhaustion, we burn out, we neglect ourselves and our families, we passively aggressively lash out at those around us and we feel vilified in our judgments. Perfectionism excuses all of this and let's be clear, it would rather see you dead than flawed. The pathology of perfectionists is the desire to beat order out of chaos. Most have a deep need for control and when it can't be achieved internally then they will strive to pull their environment and the people within them to pieces in order to create a percieved harmony. Unfortunetly harmony is not part of the perfectionists modus operandi, sometimes they can achieve minute points of relief in the rare cases where they have achieved what they have set out to do but because perfectionism is fear then that quickly changes.

 

 

I liken perfectionism to a mild OCD except the compulsion is not to create the order of objects but the create a persona, an exagerated version of the life that they are living. Perfectionism is one of the few states of fear that is celebrated culturally because it demands that you give all of the power from your life over to the opinions and thoughts of others. Quite often the “perfection” that is sought is an ideal given to you from someone else. Dealing with perfectionism is not easy because of the celebrated aspects of it and to unwind it means that you will have to face whatever perfectionism is hiding. That can be tough if you have built a whole life from the outside in. I know when healing myself through this struggle or through parts of it, I make no bones that I was ever a dedicated perfectionist, that it took courage on my part to stop everything I was doing and sink into what that business was hiding. I think sometimes perfectionism is just swapping one form of chaos for another. What I found when I dived into what was lurking behind my behaviour and the illusion of control was, and always is, unresolved pain.

 

 

When I dealt with the pain behind the compulsion the compulsion withered. It's like the wizard of Oz, when you pull back the curtain and see what's there it's not scary any more. It isn't even that powerful. So much of our power is given away because we are afraid to look at ourselves but when we do look inward it actually gives us more. Knowledge isn't always power but it is always empowering. If any of what I have said today rings true, not just for perfectionists, but people who are control freaks, those who laugh at their inability to trust, acknowledge that what you are experiencing is fear. It's learned. It's probably as a result of some past trauma or aquired habit and more importantly, it can he healed. You don't have to walk around with that knot in your gut. You are worthy of a life that feels good. You are worthy of enjoying the moment. You are on this planet to collect memories and engage with other human beings, give yourself that priviledge by pulling back the curtain.

What is compassion really?

 

Compassion is your pain in my heart and then out through my hands.”

  • Glennon Doyle

 

 

 

 

It's challenging to strike a balance between healing the world where it needs it and also holding others to their own responsibilities. In the microcosm of my life I often need to take a moment and check in with myself to see whether what I am doing is out of love or whether it is enabling someone. Too often my kindness has been taken advantage of. I have given my time, my resources to those who were just out for what they could get. Then there are those people in my life who really needed a helping hand and when I gave it, it was appreciated. It really takes practice to discern between the two but over the years I can say that I mostly get it right. Now and again one will slip under my radar or I'll find myself operating with an old habit system but on the most part I offer help not only where it is needed but also ( hopefully ) where it can be most impactful. I will also draw my energy away from people and or situations that feel like they are draining me. For me personally, one of the major steps I had to over come to even begin learning how to discern between energy snatchers and just those in help was to overcome the desire to be seen as being “nice” by others. Because people have very different ideas of what “nice” is and you'd be surprised how often “nice” reads “doormatt” in the minds of people who are after what you have.

 

 

Once you've stopped caring about how you are seen and you've checked yourself for victimhood and martyrdom then, you can start to emotionally engage with what is in front of you. Only when you are present can you figure out what someone is really after when they approach you. But how does this apply when we talk about bigger issues? How does energy awareness in the day to day of your life impact the political and social issues of our time? I personally think it's down to the clarity of your example. I know that it is a popular idea these days to consider marches as a form or protest but, I think that these marches have gone to a place where they are ineffective. At best they are an answer to a primal call to gather in times of threat. At worst they are an act of self branding for social media feeds. Quite simply they do not work. Gathering can work so long as compassionate dialogue is at it's core. If these protests became places where action plans were drawn up I think they could help more. I have yet to go on a march because I find them ineffective in our current climate. I protest with my money. I protest with my day to day actions. I spend in the direction of my own morality and I raise awareness as and when I feel it's appropriate.

 

 

As you all know I care about animal wellfare. I am vegan ( I say ish because there are a few definitions out there! ). I also vote in local elections and engage in conversations about subjects that I am passionate about. When I come across something that I feel is morally wrong, I speak up. I am not saying this to be self righteous and by no means do I get it right all the time but I do try. Things get past me. I sometimes open my mouth before my brain is engaged. I react. I am human. I do however try my best to look into ways I can personally evolve my sense of compassion. Which is not just about empathising with a situation but acknowledging a call to create change when it comes. We can't all fix the problems of the world on our own but, we can fix what is in front of us. We can design our lives in accordance with our morals. We can stand up to moral injustice in our political and economic structures not by standing on a street and screaming but by gathering in compassion and drawing up a strategic plan. Not a plan of attack or a vessel for revenge but something that will help hold us to our moral obligations. I think that can be useful when applied to our own lives and the world around us.

Finding the right psychic for you.

 

I know some people can find it a bit strange for a psychic to talk about the future not being written in stone. Surely I place my earnings in my ability to predict what's coming down the road right? Actually not so much. Even though psychics catch glimpses of people's futures what we are actually seeing is the most likely projection of the expansion of your energy. I do not interfere with free will. You have a choice at every single point in your life and it's up to you on a daily basis whether you take advantage of that or not. Being psychic really is nothing more than an ability to translate the information that we are all exposed to. It's just another sense that can pick up on what your energy is creating and what your soul is connected to at this current point. If you don't like what you are creating you have the ability to change that. Yes, some things will be harder to shift than others and I do think that there are some things that we have no control over happening. In those cases I focus on how that situation can be handled for the betterment of everyone involved.

 

 

The Universe is a fluid. Energy is not solid. It may appear to be and our understanding of it might be that but the truth is that everything around you shifts. You call what is like you to you through this Universe. It's law of attraction, like attracts like, newtons third law of motion. However you want to phraze it you have more control over what's happening than you know what to do with. I think it was Marianne Williamson who said that, “our greatest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.”. We all like the idea of control until it is put in our hands. It's something that we all have to navigate whilst in these bodies. When I read someone who understands these principals then they end to make more use of a reading. They ask different questions and are able to use me as not just a mirror for what they are creating but as an indicator of what needs to change within themselves so they can either make the most of it or change it entirely. Then of course there's the mediumship side of what I do, which is something different even though they do overlap during my readings. Having a loved one pop in to say hello, heal an old wound or just enjoying reconnecting with them temporarily is something I also love and is sacred to my practice.

 

 

Each psychic has a different gift. We all are sensitive to different kinds of information. Some are mediums, some are psychics, some are both, some are healers, some are energy sensitives and some are heightened intuitives. There are so many different types of gift and that's before we even get into how each psychic experiences them. My point is to be thorough when finding a psychic that works not just for you but who is in sync with your energy. I know that what I do isn't for everyone. I know that who I am and what I stand for isn't either. When I was younger I used to think I had to people please and shift who I was to serve each person that came to me. I tailored my gift towards entertainment and approval seeking which cost me way more than I was willing to give. These days I stand strong in the core of who I am for as long as I am able and I only want to connect with people who hold the same values as me. Those who honour love. Respect. Kindess. Those who are actively seeking to better themselves. Seekers. Lightworkers. Those looking for healing. Joy. Fun. Light. If you are looking for someone to run around a haunted house in the dark, I'm not your guy but I also hold no judgment over those that do that ( because I did it once! ). Like I said, we all work differently. So choose wisely, always remember that your intuition is the strongest psychic you will ever come across and be selective as to who joins you on your spiritual journey.

Making your own happy!

 

It normally stars with me slipping into a lull. I start watching more T.V than I want to, I get restless, I don't want to meditate. I basically start to morph into a whiny teenager. Stu even says to me that I have my “whiny face” on ( which may tell you more about our relationship than I would want you to know! Haha ). He's right though and I know that when that maudlin, angst ridden persona starts to show it's face that I need to get back to the things that I know lift my spirit. In the past I didn't recognise what was happening. I hadn't fully shed my own victimhood and I used to believe that emotions were things that happened to you rather than a relationship that you built. Becuase of this the whining went on for much longer than it needed to and grew to a much grander more dramatic scale that it ever should have. Thankfully my studies helped me to learn that happiness, or even day to day contentment is something that is generated. Even if you have the best job, the best lover, the best body condition available to you that doesn't guarantee you lasting happiness. You still have to get up, day to day and choose to invest your time into the things that lift you.

 

 

You won't always feel like doing the things that lift you. That sadness is often glamorous and attractive. Who wouldn't want to lay there for a few days feeling all dramatic about themselves? I get it and sometimes I still do it but that's why it's important to have some sort of spiritual practice. It acts a reminder that you have the ability to take control of a situation and make it your own. You may not be able to do much, but you can do something. For instance I mentioned in my blog last week that I hurt my knee ( yes I still can't walk on it ) and for a few days I conveniently “forgot” to check in with myself to see why I had created this situation. There must be a reason I chose to practically confine myself to the house? I'm in the process of unravelling it but for that few days I reveled in the “woe” of it all. Now we all know some people who spend their entire lives in that moment. We all know people who thrive on being ill and make it the topic of all conversations and we have all dabbled on that line ourselves but the question is, once you've realised what you're doing are you going to continue to chose to do it?

 

 

I know you as a powerful creator of worlds. I know that the Universe delivers to us the sum of our own energy even if we don't like what that is. I certainly don't like being sat here with a hot water bottle on my knee writing this but I own the fact that I created this situation. I own that it is on me to take time to heal. It is on me to make the most of what is in front of me and it is on me to find the joy at the centre of it all. My life is my own making and yours is up to you. You may have woken up and found yourself inside a life that doesn't feel like it belongs to you but the second you have woken up is the point where you are most powerful. From that moment on you are no longer a victim of circumstance but a powerful, magical, miracle maker who can shape your life in the direction of your choosing. You can and will become something more than you have been before. But as powerful as you are you still have to step into that power. You still have to take an active approach to your joy. Everyday happiness is built not discovered. It is created not found so go and make something, do something, find a place that lifts you and once you've done that, find another!

When something is taken away...

 

Well what a start to the week! No sooner had I limped home from Uplands ( hurt my knee yesterday ) and sent out my tarot card on social media I received a call from Stuarts work saying that he is ill and needs to come home. Thankfully one of his work mates brought him back and I have to admit that I panicked a little because he's never ill. So to see him suffering from a migraine so bad that he's actually sick from it was bracing. I wanted to cancel all my clients to look after him but he said he'd be O.K but as it would happen half my day didn't turn up anyway. So I'm donning a Florence Nightingale tabbard and for today I shall be mainly caring! Right now he's sleeping away upstairs and I'm letting him rest. It's strange how clients do drop off when I need my attention to be on something else. It happens a lot. When a family emergency comes up or I'm not feeling well more often than not I don't have to rearrange clients because they cancel themselves. It's just another reminder to me of synchronicity. I get to do just enough to keep my mind level and the rest of my time my attention is on what it needs to be.

 

 

I read a quote recently that has stuck. “Life's rejection is sometimes God's protection.”. I swear there are so many times when I got lifted out, stopped or just plain failed at something I was doing and at the time it feels awful, but, not so long after I see that the “failure” turned out to be the best thing for me. I know that the Universe has my back. I know that everything is always working out for me. It may not seem like it at the time. What I'm going through might completely suck but I know that it's all in my best interests. Hindsight is 20/20 and it's through that lens you can look over your past and see how each thing you have experienced has within it a seed for your exponential growth. The Universe is always calling you towards the best version of yourself which is why sometimes if a path is going to lead you somewhere dark then the Universe will intervene. I know this can make people feel uncomfortable because it seems to negate free will but sometimes the will of the whole that is you needs you somewhere else. There really is a divine order to life and the more you learn to listen to that order the better for you.

 

 

It all comes down to the small voice of God within all of us. I'm not fussy on how it's languaged, God, Universe, intuition, it's the wisest, most enlightened part of us that calls us repeatedly in the direction of our best good. Sometimes through absolute stubbornness or a habitual fear the Universe needs to break down where you are in order to give birth to a better you. This is why when something is taken away from me these days I make the choice to let it go. If someone is pulled out of my life I wish them well. If something I am working towards completely flops then I don't stay in a lamented state for too long. My soul will always try and show itself to me not just through my actions but also through my life. There is a calling out there that you might be missing because you are stuck on something. Don't hate yourself or the Universe for removing the blockage. You haven't been set upon, you have been set free.

Ever been a victim of a rumour?

 

Rumours are the play things of childish minds too afraid to face their own reflection. Like so many of you I have over the years been the focus of and the perpetuator of gossip. When I was young I was acclimated to talking about others. In my mind I genuinely thought it was because I cared about people so much that I wanted to find a solution to their problems for them. I even think I believed that deeply at one point but, the Universe is designed in such a way that your energy goes where your mind flows so all of me, was sent out into the world to “support” others. When your life and conversation is always about talking about other people you give parts of yourself away to them that you have barely had time to enjoy. You enter into a negative energy contract and as good as your intentions are your actions can pave way to a dark space. Have you ever given someone advice and then been enraged when they ignored it? That's the kind of negative energy space I'm talking about. That's how to tell you are not in a space of concern but in a space of shared energy and with that an entitled sense of ownership. Another very dark thing that happens when we spend our time talking about others is that we create an avatar of who they are and then hold them hostage to it. We literally invent a person in our minds and imprint it on the people around us. Of course gossip isn't the only road that takes us to that place but it's a perfect example of how rumours, even ones inside your own mind are nothing other than stories that reflect who you are.

 

 

Have you ever been at the end of a relationship and felt like your partner has ripped a mask off and a completely different person has taken over their body? Me too. Have you ever had a friend say something so hideous that it's made your head spin? Yup. Have you also met up with someone you've heard horrible things about and found them to be the complete opposite? Definitely. I always try my best to follow my own gut when it comes to meeting people but I have to admit that in the past if I heard a bad thing about someone I did always let it taint my interaction with them. I placed my loyalty with my friends instead of my own sense of values and I allowed the projected stories of others taint how I interacted with them. I also have had to varying degrees this happen to me. I have been called mentally ill, a nasty witch, a con artist, amongst many other things and I have become adept at spotting people who have invented a story about who they think I am when meeting me. It's always interesting to see what happens when someone's beliefs are challenged. Some will hang onto what they think they know for grim life whilst others with burn what they think to the ground and rise again renewed.

 

 

What stories have you told yourself about the people around you? Who have you written off as mean? Who have you put on a pedestal? As the Universe dictates you will get back what you put out there. It's weird how often people can and do live up to the story you have told yourself about who they are. So, with that in mind, why not tell a different story? Why not see the authentic, autonomous and wonderfully beautiful people that are under the surface of some of those in your life. You may be lucky enough to already see the beauty in the hearts of those around you and if you are, well done! You see reflections of who you are, you see levels of your ability to connect, to forgive, to love and to empathise displayed in perfect synchronicity around you. When people are telling stories about you, they are only really sharing what they believe about themselves. These days I don't sit in circles and discuss people that aren't there. To be honest, the older I've gotten the less interesting other people's chaos has become. I like a quiet life. I talk towards and with love as often as I can. I share only what feels good and my friendships these days are based in two human beings just enjoying each other. Challenge what you think of others and why you think it. It may say more about you than who you think they are.

Building your own wings.

 

 To say I believe in Angels is kind of silly. I no more need to believe in them than I need to believe in the chair I am sitting on or the laptop I am currently staring into. I don't need to believe in gravity and I don't need to believe in the earth being round, angels just exist and I know this because I've met more than a few. Now I know in the larger energetic sense of it all that angelic beings are respresentations of higher conciousness. I know that they are somehow shaped by the ideas of the people percieving them. I have always seen them in the traditional sense, lit from the inside and sometimes with giant wings. I have also seen them carry flavours of their human lifetimes. I have been taken on journeys by them, lifted out of my body. I have been blessed by them and shown reflected aspects of who I am and challenged in ways I never anticipated. Make no mistake, angels are as strong as they are beautiful and they will hold you to the best of yourself. We each get one, or sometimes more assigned to us throughout our human experience. I have been shown through my own experience and by being an observer of yours the intricate ways in which they intersect your life and how angels as a whole shape who we can become. It is important to note here though that even though their love and grace is unconditional that doesn't mean that they won't give you an energetic boot up the bum sometimes.

 

 

Have you ever had that experience when your life feels like it's absolute chaos and you are praying as hard as you know how to but nothing...nothing seems to be happening? Me too! Sometimes we need to make our own wings and be our own angels. Sometimes the best thing for our development as human beings is to take total and full responsibility for our actions. Angels can't and won't clean up our environment. Angels won't stop our choice to use fossil fuel. Angels won't bring you a million pounds. They will however hold you up to your own light so that you can step into the knowledge that anything is possible. Angels know that you are infinite and that you are powerful and that your life is not just of your own making but also part of a huge tapestry that connects you with everything else. Angels know the angel in you and they sometimes ask that you rely on that rather than generate a parent child relationship with them.

 

 

Where does that leave us? As always the onus on self reliance. You build your life moment by moment. Constantly creating your own dharma/karma by the things you give attention to and how you react to them. Even legitimate anger is still something that you are experiencing and doesn't hurt the person you are angry at. My rule of thumb when working with angels is simple, I pray and then I carry on with the most logical way I can think of to solve the problem at hand. When angels move, you feel it but sometimes they pick up the rope only when you've reached the end of it. When you've done all you can do, all you know to do, that's when it's a good time to sit back and let them take over. The more you let go, the more they can work. Sometimes they will viscerally alter your life and sometimes they will call you to make gentle side steps. They can talk to you directly through dreams and intuitive insights or they can put their words in the mouths of those around you. If people around you suddenly start talking strangely or if you catch your instinct guiding you to listen to someone then maybe that's them. I sometimes catch a sentence in my head. It won't be from a particularly spiritual conversation but sometimes something will just “stick” and after I chew on it for a while I ask if it's guidance and if they say yes then I go with it. Find your language with them. Work on your communication. They are there. They always have been.

Are you at 40%?

 

I have learned over the years to never start my resolutions or goals in January. There's just too many parties, catch ups and hangovers from all the festive activities and I think that each year that I have put my heart and soul into something, something has always gone wrong or awry and I end up feeling like I've failed. So, I always start “officially” in February but I do a “test” in January just to get warmed up for the things that I want to do. That means when things do get in the way of what I want to do then it's O.K. It's only really a “warm up” before I really get going! So if you have started something this year and have already failed, join me by starting again in February. My goals this year are to get back into the space of my body. I want to start running, maybe swimming and I want to deepen my yoga practice. I also wanted to clean up my diet by going completely vegan and just cutting out the last few pieces of dairy that were in my diet ( mainly chocolate ). It comes from an intuitive message I got last year to “take care of my temple”. I'm on it but I'm not going to lie, my running shoes haven't seen the pavement yet and I still haven't gone for a swim. There's no real issue behind not doing it other than a little bit of self sabotage and a little bit of laziness but it did lead me to the question, when do you give yourself a kick up the butt and when is your intuition guiding you in another direction?

 

 

I read a little while ago about the 40% rule. Basically it's an idea in fitness that once you've hit your “wall” of pain you've actually only hit 40% of what you can do. That wall is only a mental barrier and once you've pushed through it you actually have a lot more in your engine. I am not for a second going to give myself licence to say that my intuition has told me to stop running, no, that's just my inability to peel myself off the sofa but, there have been things in other areas of my life where I was trying to push past the 40% when my intuition did tell me to pack up and go home. There are times when I am writing or painting and the concentration starts to make me feel like I am flagging a bit and in that moment I can either put my brushes down or step away from the lap top or I can dig in and get another few hours out of myself. I have trained myself to recognise that space as just a need for a small breather, a cup of coffee and then I get straight back to it. There are times though when I recognise a small voice within me that tells me to stop. It tells me to put my brushes down before I ruin the painting or to stop writing because the quality has plummeted. There is a point where continuing is doing you more damage than if you just push through. So, how do you tell the difference?

 

 

For me I don't stop until that inner voice becomes a nagging pull. There is a difference between a hurdle and a full stop. A hurdle will disappear once you've crossed it but a full stop will drag you down until you cease. Ask yourself if this is a hurdle or not? If you need to come to a complete stop then do it, that doesn't mean that you've failed. It just means that the Universe has found a quicker or better way for you to get where you want to go. It's up to you to decide whether you are at a hurdle or a full stop. What does it feel like? Are you just at your pain barrier? Are you just at your 40%? What do you gain by stopping? What do you gain by carrying on? You may just need a rest or you may just need to find a better way of doing what you are doing. A full stop is not a failure, it is in itself sometimes a deeply disguised hurdle! Just play with the idea for a bit and the answer will come. It always does. Remember that the Universe benefits from the happiest version of you so its guiding you in that direction. Listen carefully and don't forget to play!

Check your thought-habits.

 

 Your mind is a powerful thing. It really is. So much so that even acknowledging that can begin to awaken you to what you have access to. I have always found it so fascinating that with such a force of nature with you that we allow most of it to go on auto pilot. We create our realities by default if you will. Habits are a potent guide to the human experience and they have been an area of deep fascination for me for years. After finding out that habits, beliefs are the foundation blocks of the energy that create our lives I have made it a personal mission of mine to discover what it is I really believe about myself and the world around me. After all, Abraham Hicks says that a belief is just a thought you keep thinking. So what is it that you are thinking? With all the change that is happening within me recently I have challenged a lot of my ideas about who I am and who I was. A certain autopilot of mood and demeanor has been brought to my attention. I am by nature naturally gregarious. I like to speak my mind, explore, try new things and seek expression wherever I think I might be able to find it. Yet years of habit have made me more cautious than I would like to be and more world weary than I have the stomache for.

 

 

One of the things about growing older is developing the skill set to fight being jaded about the world. The world will always show back to you your thoughts about it. If you approach the world with a victim based or martyr based mindset then that's what you will see. Everything is accessible to you it's just what you choose to line up with through the selection of your energy. When I doubt myself I line up with people who pick me apart, passive aggressive bullies or people who enjoy being spiteful. When I am down on myself I come across every depressive and depressing thing I can find. Similarly when I look after who I am, when I love who I am, people who love who they are turn up and a party begins! I know that's a really overly simplified way of putting it but in essence it's how a part of our experience as human beings works. The world reflects back to you the energy you hold. This is why when something turns up in my life that I don't want I always look inward first to see which part of me it is reflecting. I deal with whatever comes up, do my best to forgive, let go and then embody the lesson I have learned. You don't always have to wait for something negative to turn up in order to move forward with your life. In moments when things are quiet you are also allowed to play!

 

 

I think that's definitely one of the mistakes I have made. Seeking lessons solely in pain. Waiting until my life is out of balance in order to seek balance. I sink into the habit of what I am used to and don't challenge what comes my way enough. One of the new choices I have made for this year is to follow my gut more and that's already brought so much to the surface. It's highlighted habits that I didn't know I was continuing and also helping me to distinguish between what used to help me a long time ago and what actually helps me now. It can be difficult to look at your life when it is content and have the guts enough to demand that it be better. To look at the boundaries of your own mind and dare to ask for more. Are you a victim of your own mind? Are you courageous enough to demand that life go from good to great? Where in your psyche do you limit yourself? Take some time and really delve into the nature of your thought habits. Who do you think what you do and the way you do? Does it serve you? Did it used to? Do you want to continue thinking that way? Remember that you are not your mind. You are not the person thinking your thoughts. You are the awareness of your thoughts. Choose and choose wisely the energy you hold because it will dictate your life.

Setting the right tone for the year.

 

I'm back! I'm settled and I can not believe it's a month today since I moved into this house! What a wonderful and exhausting time! We still have boxes everywhere because on the weekends when we weren't running around doing house moving stuff, then the festive season stuff, my poor Stu got sick from all the lack of rest! So, I morphed into Florence Nightingale for a few weeks! Most of the house is now clean, useable and we are deciding what we want to do with what room. It's all the exciting bits now, colours and paints and wall papers, it's like a giant canvas to me and I really feel a strong urge to nest. Also, we have a coal fire here ( which I will change to make more eco friendly ) but as it turns out I lack the basic human skill of fire making so watching me do that a few nights ago was a comedy sketch in itself. Now this is always what I consider the first week of January because it's the first full week where there are no parties, interuptions or anything major going on. It's just head down and back to work. I'm eager to get my head back into doing proper readings again and back into my normal routine.

 

 

I can't ignore though that something profound has shifted. I'm sleeping better, feeling more clear and the readings I'm doing in this house just seem a little bit more relaxed. I have also noticed a little change in my goal setting. I do need my goals. I am a work horse and typical bloke in that respect. If I don't have a set point to work towards I inevitably end up watching Netflix and eating too much sugar. When I have a plan in front of me I just tick it off as I go along and I feel much better in doing so. What I have noticed in the last month is the lack of pressure behind my goals now. I have begun to just work rather than lash at my own back to get myself motivated. This whole process of moving home and how it happened has strengthed my relationship with my intuition and has also helped me to unravel ideas of intention and intentionality. I havent' added any new goals to my lists for this year other than to replay some of the fun projects I didn't get done last year but, what I have done is added a central core intention. To deepen my relationship with my intuition. Which is the same as saying to deepen my relationship with my inner being. Which is the same as saying to make more time to be curious about the world.

 

 

It's important before we run head first into our resolutions and working lives for the next year that we bring to the table a core need to reserve time to wonder at the world around us. It's the bread crumbs of the soul that I find so interesting. I love to watch things grown and shape and shift. Each time I have been open enough to follow, really follow my intuition my life has changed in beautiful ways. It has brought me a healthier body, a healthier social circle, a wonderful relationship and now a new home. I know this time of year is always full of new ideas and new beginnings but I think that above all it would benefit us to reserve the right to scrap all of them if our intuition tells us to. For me I will keep plodding along as always but this year my intention is to keep a closer ear to the ground. To make a more concerted effort towards creating silence enough to hear the whispers of my soul. Sound like a good idea to you? Give it a try!

Happy New Year!

Last blog of 2017!

 

 Although I have more writing to do this will probably be the last blog of 2017 and blimey, what a year it has been! I still havent' quite processed everything yet but I know a little time away from work will do me good and give me some much needed perspective. For reasons I can't quite understand this has been a challenging one. Energetic reserves have been on empty, the pain of the labour towards birthing a new life has been apparent. I have felt more battered and bruised this year and it has forced me to re examine many primary beliefs. Yesterday I sat with a friend and we mulled over the twists and turns of where we have been. I have ended this year in a new house, with a new smile sat with new friends and I couldn't be happier. I also can't ever remember being this tired! The Universe is always consistant though and I know that while one journey has ended another has already begun. I know that this new phaze in my life is also new soil for new things to grow. All I am focussing on right now is resting. I have a whole tin of Quality Street and I have managed to avoid all Stranger Things spoilers so that I can do a whole marathon in front of the telly on the weekend. This Christmas it's just me and my boys in our new home in front of our new fire.

 

 

I am casually planning my next year because as I've mentioned this year I have failed to complete any of my goals. Like, not a single one! I am not mad about it nor am I frustrated with myself because I know why and I have a little more perspective now on the whole thing. The great thing about failing in that way is the opportunity to re examine whether your heart is still in a project. Are the things that I am planning to do genuine extensions of my heart or am I just on a list-a-thon regurgitating things that I think I should be doing? These are all important things for me to mull over. More than anything the happiness of my day to day has to come first. I have to be the best version of myself for myself and in turn for the people around me. It's weird that since the move I can feel a whole shift in who I am. Nothing huge, just a relaxing into a more authentic version of who I am now. I believe everything is symbolic and a shift of residence has shifted a point of focus. I am getting ready to pluck more from the Universe and see what she has to bring me.

 

 

So as we round up the year it's O.K to spend a little time looking back. Pick up the lessons you've learned and check in with yourself to see if your life looks like you. Not who you were but who you are becoming. Make sure your plans include you. Not just your work, your relationship, your family or the million and one little things that demand your attention. Make sure you are showing up for you. The world needs you to have a full and present heart and you do too. Work on your body, the love you pour inwards and be sure to think about not just the goals you want to achieve but the kind of person you want to be. Where could you be better towards yourself? Where could you exercize more compassion? The more you turn that inward the more you are likely to express it to your community and to the world around you. If you buy into the media and marketing campaigns right now you might believe that we are in a hostile and divisive time. We're not. We are just at the end of one cycle and giving birth to something new. We've done this before. We know how to grow. So together let's take a new step.

Have a wonderful holiday!

Taking brave steps.

 

A journey towards wellness is a sequence of a thousand steps. That's really all we can do, what is right in front of us in this moment. Sometimes those steps are not filled with marshmallows and puppies. Sometimes the most loving thing to do can feel cruel and harsh in the moment. Over the years I've had to distance myself from a lot of people. Some of them were dear friends, some of them lovers, some of them family members. The pulling away was not fun and I really did not enjoy the process one bit but, at some point you have to put your wellness first. As I've said many times you are the foundation block of your entire life. Everything you build you build from the inside out. So to not take care of who you are means that everything you build is on shoddy ground. So many people I have come across over the years have just never had the languageing skill of self respect. We so often think that it's about how other people behave around you but that's not really what respect is at it's core. It's about how you conduct yourself in any situation. Manners, compassion, social graces are all part of self respect. It is how you chose to honour who you are.

 

 

Drawing a boundary within your life first begins inwardly. You first have to decide that you are worth protecting. You are worth respecting. You are worthy of being loved and you are worth the ability to love. You deserve a life that looks like you. You deserve a life that feels honest. That's not to say that it will always be fun. Everyone's journey is littered with pain but that pain doesn't need to be a monument. Bit by bit, piece by piece you can create life for yourself that is an honest and accurate expression of your most authentic self. For me that has included simple things like making sure I am self employed, making sure I am creatively and spiritually active and also making sure that I am self aware enough to ask for the things I feel like I need and want. I definitely learned the “put up and shut up” habit that seems pervasive in our culture. These days I express myself much more but I'd be lying if I said I did it all the time. There is still sometimes a small window where I wrestle asking for what I feel like I need but I get out of that space a lot quicker than I used to.

 

 

My point is a journey towards expressing and living a love centred life doesn't always feel like sunshine. But it can feel honest. We all have had those moments where we have had to let someone go out of our lives and live through that horrible space but the truth of that doesn't change. The truth that it needs to be done doesn't alter. So with this in mind, where in your life are you not being true to yourself? Where in your life are you lying to yourself? Where in your life are you not showing up? Playing small is chronic socially so why not show up where you are?! I completely believe in the magic and miracle of the human spirit. I have seen so many examples first hand of people transcending horrific situations and becoming their most authentic selves. It is possible for every person out there is you are willing to live by your own truth and not betray yourself any more. Be willing to live without lies. Once you get to the foundation of who you are you really can build something beautiful.

Defining a dream.

 

You never stop growing. It really is true. Wanting more is not greedy, it's the nature of the human spirit. We are all artists with life as our canvas. Even sat here in a new home that I am starting to fall in love with I still want more. Dont worry Stu is you are reading this, I don't want to move again, but there will always be things that call me to grow. Right now I am working more consciously on the things I want to manifest in my life next. I am going through everything with a fine tooth comb. What lifestyle do I want? What feeling do I want to live more dominantly? What financial improvements do I want to make? I am going from the ground up to define within myself exactly what it is I want to call to me. Once I am clear on everything that's when I am going to give it over to the Universe and see what she says. That's the part of most manifestational practices that we over look. We forget to check in to see if what we are asking for really is a part of our authentic selves. I've learned over the years to just keep an ear to the ground when asking for something to make sure that it's meant for me.

 

 

Also, make your manifestations exciting! What dream has been lurking in the back of your mind that you would like to give a go? For me it's less about mining my mind for a desire and more about filtering out the billion things I'd like to try. There are so many creative disciplines that I would like to try and so many hobbies that I would like to give a go, plus the many places in the world I would like to see. This last year I had so many things that I wanted to do and none of them happened. Like, absolutely not even one of them! So I think I am going to revisit a lot of the things I set in motion last year and see of they still hold up. If they do, then I already have my list to move forward with! My rule of intent now though is whether the dreams, goals or ideas I have still hold any excitement for me. A mild curiosity is not enough for me to reorient my life right now. I am looking for complete intuitive ingestion into a space. That feeling I had to move house this last year was so powerful and I want to be in that space more.

 

 

Intuitive movement is something I intend to work on a lot more. I noticed this year that there were so many times when I didn't know what to do that I would actually ask my intuition to take over my body and without any deliberate thought I would find myself doing the exact right thing at the exact right time. I would call people that I needed to speak to. Change things that needed to be changed. I'm not sure if that's a good way to live every day of my life but it's something I am chewing on right now. Have you ever tried that? If you are stuck in a situation and don't quite know what to do and there is a time limit to it then ask your intuition to take over and see what you end up doing! It's a fascinating experience and one I want to unravel further! With that in mind I think I'll try and incorporate it into the creation of my manifestation list for 2018! What's going on yours?

Are you listening?

 

 Every morning, after yoga and meditation I begin with an intuitive exercize. It literally is just me sitting there with a pen and a cup of coffee doodling whilst asking my intuition if it has any insights for me. Then if anything pops into my mind I write it down. If it pops into my mind over and over again over the course of a week that's when I know my instinct is trying to get my attention. Recently most of my insights have been centred around my body. The words “Take care of your temple” kept running around in the back on my mind. I wasn't entirely sure what it meant at first until I caught sight of my belly in a mirror and nearly fell to the ground in horror! I've never had a gut and to find myself in possession of one was not a good moment for me. So since then it's back to the cardio, a complete cull on the crap I eat during the day, ( note to self : NEVER leave a packet of biscuits next to the kettle ) and looking at new ways to engage my body in activity. I have had intuitive hits to try swimming, relax mentally and yesterday the message was to vary my diet more. Intuition isn't always a life shifting thing. It can be as you all know, after all I only moved house because my gut pulled me in that direction. Most of the time though intuitive hits are subtle which is why I advocate you leaving room in your day to listen.

 

 

A quiet cuppa and a notepad is often enough of a gap in your thoughts to listen to that little voice in the back of your head. I often take a piece of pen and paper with me everywhere but I also find on dog walks that little hunches will often come to the surface. I love to watch the trees and the skies and the sea and find that it's often when my mind wanders that it finds itself. When I relax more I am able to hear my own truth but you don't have to be in deep meditation to get there. Your intuition is always working for you. It is always planning the shortest route between you and the things that you are manifesting. The more you listen, the more you follow, the more you will allow into your life. Sometimes your intuition really works hard to get you in the space of where you need to be so that you can listen to it and that's often when little “accidents” happen or when the Universe throws you a cruve ball. It's those moments when something bizarre lands on your lap and you catch yourself saying, “I wonder what that means?”. It doesn't have to be something bad. Sometimes a white feather is a message from the angels for you to sit down and get quiet. When you don't know what's really going on maybe it's because you're ignoring what your inner voice is telling you and this is how the Universe has had to get your attention?

 

 

Right now, right in this moment your intuition has a message for you and maybe reading this blog is the conduit through which it is speaking to you. If you are reading this then as soon as you are done take 5 minutes and doodle. Ask your intuition if it has any information for you. Listen to whatever voice shows up in your head, whatever memory surfaces, whatever idea crops up. Or if nothing does, repeat the process throughout the day, make a concerted effort to get our of your own way and listen. The more space you create, the more room you have to change your inner dialogue. Make room to listen. You won't always get it right, I work as a psychic and medium and even I fall over my own thoughts on my way to intuitive insight. But I still show up the next day and the day after that. Keep going. Make listening part of your daily routine and see where it takes you.

Building something new.

 

Start small. What is the one thing you could do today to improve the quality of the life that you are living? That's a question I ask myself regularly. When we start to look at the narrative of self development the whole industry explodes all over you. It's yoga, meditation, green tea, positive thinking, manifestation, mood boards, trips to Bali, writing your memoirs, morning pages and that's just stuff to consider before 10 am. It's a lot, and whilst it's O.K to pick and borrow and choose what you might want to try we need to consider the root of why we are doing these things in the first place. It's about creating right? It's about looking through the chaos of an every day life and seeing the love at the centre of it. It's about returning to your emotional and spiritual home. It's so easy to get caught up and just create a new “spiritually flavoured” type of chaos. If you've been in this community for a while we've all met people who do this. Running around with crystals attached to every appendage and going to every class under the sun but never actually creating peace. That's the root of my practice, to find the easiest route to peace.

 

 

I have built up quite a system over the years and from the outside looking in it looks like a lot. To be honest it shifts and changes but the root of it all remains steady. I find something that helps me achieve quiet, something that helps me feel grateful and something that helps me to express love. As long as those three pieces of the puzzle are present I feel a lot more grounded. With the house move recently it's been more of a challenge to get back into the routine I had and that's given me the opportunity to look at what in the routine is and isn't working. I have let the morning poetry writing slide but I am starting that again next week properly. I also havent done a lot of meditation this last week and I can feel it's absence. The one non negotiable of my morning is time with Stuart. I will forgo all my practices to make sure I spend time with him before he goes to work. Expression of love is mandatory for my well being so creating that space is part of the foundation block of my day.

 

 

So spend some time today not just thinking about what you can do to improve your day but actually try playing with some ideas. Why not sit there are doodle on your lunch break or do some colouring in as a meditation practice? Why not turn off your phone for 15 minutes and have a cup of tea in complete silence? These are all small little things that don't take up a lot of time and can really have an impact on your day to day experience. Also something small you can do to improve your life can be something as simple as aiming to be as gentle on yourself as you can be today. Aim to not beat yourself up as much. Aim to give yourself an unapologetic nap or a gift, or a little adventure somewhere new. A painting is nothing more than a collection of a thousand brush strokes but when they all add up you have a thing of beauty. Make a brush stroke today and create the masterpiece that is the life that's living you.

Are you ready for your own reflection?

 

It' so easy to point the finger. To make what is happening in your life someone else's fault. The work we do in the spiritual community is not for everyone and if you try to promote it to someone who isn't ready or willing then it can often end in disaster. I actually don't think it's healthy to promote this way of life at all, I firmly believe that you have to come to it on your own and in your own time. I have learned this the hard way. Like I've said before I can be belligerently naïve. I often think that if it weren't for an unrelenting connection to my instinct that I would have gotten myself in a lot more trouble. Being a psychic I have access to a truth, sometimes my truth, sometimes a client's personal truth, sometimes a glimpse of what's coming. It literally is an extra sense and it is different from being a medium. That is more about listening to spirits. Now in my early days of figuring this out I would often share information without consent, without respecting the boundaries of the people around me. I would literally just blurt out what I picked up on in the moment. As you can imagine that didn't always go down too well. One of the things I noticed that always stuck with me and was repeated in many other areas of my life was that so many people demonized who I was so that they didn't have to deal with what I said.

 

 

Most of you will know what I mean by this. I think in some way shape or form we have all been projected into something we are not by someone else. It took a few rounds of me sitting there trying to figure out why I was being attacked when all I really thought I was doing was helping to figure out that relationship to truth is incremental. Some people just aren't ready for it and sometimes you aren't either. How often have you over looked a deep flaw in a relationship because you were afraid that if you pulled on that thread the whole thing would unravel? How often have you turned up at a job when you knew in your core that you weren't supposed to be there? How often have you ignored that niggle in the back of your brain that has told you to stop and take care your body? We have all spent time in these gray areas and the less you dwell there the more you change. The more you ready yourself for truth, the more you will recognise it and be willing to act upon it. On a planet of 7 billion there are bound to be a few that rub you up the wrong way so appropriate boundaries are vital for your survival but you don't need to demonize someone to put them there in the first place.

 

 

Before you point a finger at someone for how they have behaved maybe check first to see what truth within you they are reflecting. I know that when someone hurts me, really gets under my skin, it's because there is something in me that they are showing me. Sometimes they are showing me a lack of good boundaries, sometimes it's a bit more deep and personal. The point is I try to work from the inside out before reacting. I don't always succeed but we're all human at the end of the day. I do try to figure out what in me attracted them in the first place and what energy in me they are showing up with. After all, the laws of karma, attraction, cause and effect are always in play. Only then do I reinforce my own internal boundaries, clear up and wounds that need attention and if needed have a conversation with any other parties about what will be appropriate moving forward. Once you've changed your energy the universe will rise to meet it. Work on your first. You deserve that grace.

Clearing what is no longer needed.

 

After a whole weekend of lifting boxes, dropping boxes, putting boxes in the wrong rooms and finding more rando crap than any human being should ever accumulate, I am FINALLY in my new home! I normally cry on moving days but whether it was the exhaustion, the lack of coffee in my system or just that I was so ready to go I was actually O.K all day. I was the last person in the house and I said a little goodbye, I went into my empty readings room and had a quiet word with the spirits to let them know that I wasn't going to be there any more. I know that they know that of course, it was more a symbolic act to clear my energy out of the space. I mopped and hoovered ( and of course my hoover broke on the day so thank the GODS for my friend claire who ran down with hers for me ). Then as Stuart filled the last car load, I closed the door and walked Oscar from the old house to the new one. Yes, I've not gone far. My mind was really quiet as I left the hill, after almost 20 years I was ready for that chapter of my life to be over. Already I feel lighter, more creative, less weighted. Today is the first day I am in this house on my own and I have to craft out of it what I need it to be. My readings room is all set up and I plan a good meditation in there later to get a whif of the energy balance but first things first, cleansing the space!

 

 

I recommend a good house cleanse at least once a month. I tend to do it weekly because my house get's a lot of footfall but once a month is plenty and if you do it on a full moon then you can normally stretch the energy shift out a little longer. My personal preference is to burn incense. I've just always loved it to the point of, for a while, I considered starting making my own and having a little business around it. My favourite is Nag Champa but I burn a sandalwood when I do a cleanse and sometimes I add a little lavender to the mix if I want to increase the love vibrations. I start at the front door and then chant working clockwise through the house, covering every window and door in cleansing symbols ( pentagram, christian cross or reiki symbol will do ). I work my way from the front door to the back door and then back to the front again. For about 3 days after the cleanse the house feels like it's had a deep clean! Anything and everything clients have brought with them has gone and I can realx into an energy echo-less environment.

 

 

Like most of you I believe that houses are their own histories, especially old houses like the one I moved into. I can definitely feel old energies here but to be honest the overall feeling is love. The lady who lived here before clearly loved and doted on her children because that love is all through the house. It felt like a warm hug when I walked in and now that I am making this house my own I want to keep that love going. I have also felt echos of an old lady at the back of the house and a gentleman in the room I am about to do readings in. Nothing feels untoward though and I think that what I'm picking up on is just an energy imprint rather than an actualy spirit but I'll feel more and know more when I relax more and open up fully. Cleansing brings a lot of this stuff to the surface, or more acurately, it helps you to see what's really there rather than just keeping things spiritually muddy. When you finish a cleanse, sit for a moment and visualise yourself walking around your house. Any room that you can't see clearly in your minds eye is the room that needs the most clearing. Give it a go, if anything weird comes up then drop me a line or maybe leave a message below and I'll see if I can help!

P.S I didn't notice that beam of light in the picture until this morning! Cool huh! I love hidden little nods from the Universe like that! 

Free yourself from the negative ex...

 

Your energy is not benign. It is a moving, thinking, intuitive extension of your soul. It is an expression of who you are, who you were and the potential of everything you can be. Expressions of this energy are found more often than not in your aura which is a light that extends around the body containing wonderful pieces of information. I see it as a sort of echo of your soul. Those of you that come to my readings know that I like to read the aura and the more I delve into it the more it unfolds like a map around you. I used to just see colours, one or two that usually depicted someone's mood. Over the years I've learned to see whole energy maps of someone's life and even to this day it is evolving and growing into something richer. The only troubling part of the energy I encounter is just how often I see people hang onto energy from past relationships. Sometimes, and even more worryingly, I've seen a clients energy more focused on the pain of a past hurt than they are on the love of what is right in front of them. It's scary when we allow the wounds of our past to prevent us from the joy of our now so, I wanted to give a few tips on how to shake any fragments that might be hindering you moving forward loose.

 

 

If you find yourself often day dreaming about an ex or if you have noticed that you are tarring the people around you with the same brush then that's a clue you might need to do some inner work. If your ex fundamentally shifted your ability to trust anyone then that might be something you are going to want to undo. I'm all for growing from these experiences and I completely understand that some break ups hold severe trauma in the psyche and energy systems but the truth is until you learn to resolve that energy it sits right there with you. You take it into every other relationship you go into and you also share it around every other aspect of your life. The good news is you also have the power to free yourself of all of those entanglements. You can viscerally cut loose any negative attachment to an old lover. All you need to do is forgive them for everything. Yep, I said it. Forgive them. Can you look back at an old hurt and feel more grateful for the lessons you've learned and the person you've become as a result than the pain of the experience? Can you feel love in your heart for the lessons you've brought to yourself through the soul of that person? The more you lean in that direction, the more love that floods your energy and the quicker you surrender them and the energy of their that you hold onto back to the Universe.

 

 

There are many symbolic meditations when it comes to energy surrendering. Cord cutting is a popular one and so is a boyfriend/girlfriend bonfire ( burning their stuff ). Don't get me wrong I think ritual is fun and important when it comes to personal transformation but no energy will shift until you learn to inject love, compassion and forgiveness into the root of the wound and set it free. If you don't part of you will always be a victim to the circumstances of the pain rather than a self taught soul artist. You get to decide what you paint your life with so don't splay it with shades of pain. Take the most beautiful parts of your experience, your love, your light, your capacity for transformation and use that to life your energy to a new level. The quicker you show gratitude towards the things that hurt you the most, the quicker you can free yourself of the weight they carry over you. Good luck!

Where did that come from?

 

 In less than 2 weeks I leave this house and sitting here surrounded by boxes and lists I am at the point where I am counting the days! So, of course, any resistance to the move, any self doubt within my own energy has had a only small window of opportunity to manifest... and it has. Like I've said in previous blogs even though I have wholeheartedly followed my gut on this one, probably with more faith than most of my life decisions ( mainly because it impacts Stuart soo ) I have also never questioned an intuition as much as I have this one. It's been such a weird back and forth. If the intuition wasn't as clear as it was and the signs to move as blatant as they have been I probably would have called it off a while ago. But of course, when you allow a certain amount of energy within your own body it's going to create a ripple effect in your environment. This week the guy who is moving us has hurt his back so can't commit to the move, we've found out that we don't actually own the deeds to the front steps of our house ( I know, am I supposed to pole vault into my garden? ) and there's whispers of delay with the buyer. All of this came to light over the weekend and if I were any less of a man I would have fallen to the ground and cried fowl at the Universe for not making this a “smoothe transition” but all I could do was laugh at myself and say, “Well done Ry!”.

 

 

I know things will level out. I know this wont really hinder anything. I know that by friday of this week it will all be plain as day and O.K in front of me. The only reason I'm talking about it is because it's interesting to think about the lens through which we look at what we are creating. If my energy were more dominantly rooted in self doubt I might have looked upon those bumps in the road and seen tham as signs. I might have allowed them to cost me a good mood. At worst I would have let them stop me moving forward at all but if anything they made me smile. I know that what I am creating for myself is in my best interests and each time I step fully into that energy I know that I am making all the right choices. Connecting and reconnecting with that inner truth over and over also helps me to see the energy content of what shows up in my life. You really can see which part of your energy created which part of your life. Through a discerning eye it's hard not to see. Is your job a reflection of your heart or is it a reflection of a learned sense of duty? Is the chaos you're facing a reflection of what you have allowed within yourself or is your life emptying? Different parts of you are creating all the time. The world around you is ultimitely an echo of the spirit within you.

 

 

I know that last sentence might be a little intense for a Tuesday morning but it doesn't make it any less true. It also doesn't make what you experience any less painful or joyful or make you any less responsible for what turns up in front of you. Your life is of your own making. If you remain in a space of fear it's so easy to start acting like a victim to the world around you. Trust me, that never ends well! If you create love, stayin the space of love and try to see the world through the lens of love then instead of crying foul when things don't work out you just end up being pro active. Within the space of 24 hours near enough all the little bumps that turned up have been taken care of and we are back on course. I knew exactly what had created what in my experience and therefore knew how to react to it. Take a little look at your life and think about which parts of you are playing out where. Once you've identified it's much easier to get a handle on them and course correct! Good Luck.

How about you?

 

I plan my blogs out on a Sunday night. I sit with tarot cards and connect with the Universe to try and allow through myself what would be the most impactful things to write that would help my clients in the moment they need it realign with the love in their own hearts. Too often I forget that I am included in that mix as well. It happens a lot when something will be on my mind, or there's a problem happening in my life and at the very moment I need to deal with it I also need to write a blog on it. Writing is a form of meditation for me. It forces me to solidify what I think about a subject. It's then that I can use that as a platform to either allow my opinion to grow or sometimes to let it go completely. I am not one of those people that think it's O.K to believe the same things for most of your life. I think if what you think hasn't shifted then you haven't really let go to life often enough. Lately I seem to be writing about two main subjects, how much room you make to show love to who you are and also how much room you make to listen to your intuition. These are themes that I am working on within myself and I have needed, over this last year especially to root myself in a system of self care.

 

 

As the year has gone on I have become renewed in my fascination with the dynamic between my intuition and my willingness to hear it. I've actually reinstigated intuitive exercizes into my morning routine just so that I am doing all I can to listen should it have anything to bring to me. I have reconnected with a silence based meditation practice and have reintroduced myself to yoga also. All of these things seem to have a wonderful “emptying out” process for my mind and I am able to hear what I am REALLY thinking underneath the general clutter of every day mental noise. As you all know my intuition recently told me to move house, the feeling was strong and in my gut and I am wise enough to know that that is enough of a reason to act on it. Within three weeks my house was sold and in less than two weeks Stu and I move into our new place. That intuitive hit was the strongest I had elt for a while and it sparked something in me. I'm not sure whether it hit so hard because I wasn't listening regularly or because the message had an urgency to it but what I do know is that I felt electrified by that connection and I want more. That clarity, that unashamed “knowing” is something I am bringing into my own energy more and more.

 

 

I've said before that I can see clients lives, choices, energies and sometimes projections of their futures with a clarity that I have envied for my own. I do get messages for myself but my own internal bias often gets in the way and I can't see for myself with the same type of assuredness. Intuitive messages seem to over ride a lot of that and put me in the space the spirits often put my clients in. Since that last big intuitive hit I have been receiving more. I know that some changes are coming for me and I am listening to what I am being told. In the same way that I knew it was time to move I know that more change is on the way for me. I know that my business is shifting energies, I am feeling guided to get more in tune with my physical body and my relationship to my creativity is about to go through an evolution. Some of the messages I am getting for myself are gentle whispers, others are kicks to the shin, either way, making room to listen has put me firmly back into a space where I want to be and I didn't realise I had drifted so far from. I can't remember who said it but the quote goes, “Your head shouts, your heart whispers.”. So silence, in any shape or form has become something I am hungry for right now. I will follow where I am called and right now there is a call to stillness. How about you?
