Lighting New Pathways of Self

Another journey to the Swamp land today as I welcome in the New Year according to the Mayan Calendar. What a beautiful sunny day it was! The light was magical, different, illuminating spaces I had not seen before, like net curtains being drawn back from a window, showing me a new view of the world and the energies of new light coming in!

There was a quietness at the swamp, yet there was a lot of birdsong, like the birds were heralding in the New completely aware of the changes occurring on all levels and with a Full Moon approaching tomorrow! It's time to awaken to the new in all ways. Time to heed the messages from the Universe and Spirit and what divine messengers of spirit were at the swamp today.

Walking along the pathway I took a photo and wow the light was amazing! For the message was start lighting new pathways of Self! The path is now clear of obstacles as the fallen branch laying on the path from the Sunday's walk had now been cleared! Signalling full steam ahead! Time to get moving, moving! 

I was drawn to stop at certain place along the pathway, feeling the curtains of the swamp parting, revealing a beautiful black swan! Now I have never seen a black swan at the swamp before and it felt like spirit was showing me a divine sign to take notice of. In the animal kingdom swans are the symbol of Ascension.

Swan's message it's time to connect and see your inner beauty. A time to embrace the power of self. Trust and believe in your true nature, the grace of self, opening to the wonder and mystery  of life! 

Connecting to the energy of Swan I could feel and see my inner beauty, the power of my inner sun shining like a diamond in the sky all else dissolving. Tears of joy flowed at those realisations, surrendering to the Oneness of all that is and the grace and love of my heart.

I left the swamp along a different path, one that took me past a grove of trees where low and behold there were some Black cockatoos! Then all of a sudden one flew out of the tree, fanning its beautiful red tail, saying I'm giving you a message please take note! Who could not when such beauty is staring you in the face. Unfortunately these Carnaby black cockatoos are a threatened species so I sincerely hope with all my heart they can be protected from this. 

The Black Cockatoo's message, surrender to the changes that are to come forth, trusting all will be revealed in its own divine time. Be aware and open to new opportunities as they present along your pathway, both metaphorically and physically, going with the flow of life.

Interesting that the Black cockatoo appeared around the time of the Lunar Full Moon as they are seen as a lunar bird, associated with feminine energies and the creative forces at play. So harness the forces of creativity in your life.

It hasn't always been like that for me as I have been on a journey to wholeness for a number of years with Chronic fatigue, Fibromyalgia and lyme dis-ease, my messengers, bringing my attention to say hey there are things you need to become aware of and heal. There is a bigger picture and a bigger purpose for you. It's been a journey of understanding self, the inner self, a bit like peeling back the layers of an onion. I also now understood and accepted I could not possibly have known all that I needed to know at the beginning of my healing journey. It's true, understanding and wisdom have been shown to me when I have been ready to listen, to see and not before. How could they have been present when I was not present with awareness to receive the wisdoms and teachings. 

Patience, faith and trust have surely been my teachers. Yes there have been times I have felt like giving up when the light at the end of the tunnel seemed so far away. Who wouldn't when the pain body is so great and you don't have the energy to lift your head off the pillow let alone get out of bed. When your immune system completely crashes and it takes as long at takes to rebuild.

Change comes when you choose to embrace courage and the strength to travel to your inner self, opening your heart to the love of you, beginning that sacred journey where the alchemy of self, the ordinary is transmuted and transformed into the greatest most extraordinary version of you, the one who is true in all ways. 

I realised today after I got home and began interpreting the signs that were presented to me that I had in many ways abandoned My Self. For years I felt like the ugly duckling not feeling I was beautiful, worthy of love, not good enough etc, not really feeling I belonged anywhere to be honest. Funny I was always drawn to reading that story as a child. Bullied, teased and rejected at school, a sensitive soul, who has never felt confident in the world, allowing myself to shrink and hide away, fearful of allowing my true self and my gifts to shine. I can tell you my fear has been big, drowning out Love, so there was very little for me. Thankfully that imbalance is now reversing as I become friends with fear and those other darker aspects of self and there is a now a greater flow of Love.

It's been a journey of the heart, a soul awakening, to unconditional divine love as the fear of being seen, speaking my truth etc etc gradually fades away. My awakening journey continues as I open further to my true nature and my truth. I have learnt a lot along the way, lessons and wisdoms that I would like to share. Its been a journey of the spirit, navigating the garden of my heart, weeding and clearing that inner jungle, tangled with so many things, choking my soul, starved of love, stifled with fear. Thankfully the baggage and jungle are clearing out!

It's about forging a relationship with self. A never ending journey that takes one on many twists and turns as one navigates the pathways of the heart. Its important to be really honest and real with your self as much as you can. The journey of self is a work in progress as things you once you thought had cleared are triggered again offering another layer to be peeled back, to be let go of! It takes as long as it takes with all the highs and lows along the way.

Now I begin a new journey in the garden of my heart and soul. Remembering and awakening to my inner beauty, my grace allowing all that to shine forth. Graceful like the swan, no longer an ugly duckling. Did you know that swans have 7 vertebrae in their neck? Opening and trusting to the grace and wonder of the mysteries as they appear in divine time and ways. 

The journey of the spirit has no timelines. It only asks that you surrender to the sacredness of your journey, be patient and walk to the beat of your drum as you tread your own unique path peppered with the lessons and challenges that you came here this lifetime to master if you choose to. We are all special beings, all capable of developing our intuitive abilities, our talents and gifts. 

Sharing my journey may awaken you to understanding aspects of yourself and your own journey.  Know that you are not alone. There are others who traverse similar pathways, even though our soul's purposes are different.

My challenges, obstacles and lessons in all areas of my life are all gifts that have allowed me to open to ME! All of Me. I share this with you to give you hope that the impossible is possible. That a new life awaits not just for me but for you also!

In my journey I have been fortunate to work with LUXOR Light a multi dimensional healing system, working with the ascension frequencies of LUXOR Light that enable one to clear the chaos within, opening to your true nature, connecting with your higher self through a program of meditation. More on than as there is so much to write it cannot all be covered in this one post along with my own journey.

Oh yes on the footpath on the way home was a parcel that had obviously lost the way to its intended recipient. I picked it up intending to take it to the post office. As I got closer to home I saw the postie and gave the parcel to them! How is that for serendipity! 

The significance of the parcel on my pathway was spirit showing me there would be gifts of nice surprises coming to me! 

With a heart full of love and gratitude for all that I receive, as well as all that I give to nature and life I am content and at peace as I come home to Me, beginning a new chapter in my journey powered by Love.

I am a LUXOR Light Energy Specialist, accredited healing practitioner, Meditation Facilitator and teacher. Plus I am also a Flower Alchemist and Colour Therapist.
If I can assist or support you in any way as you navigate your pathway I would be honoured to do so. 

My website is currently under construction with details of all I offer. More coming on my facebook page too so why not like and follow my page!

Baring the Branches of Self

The autumn leaves have now flown, blown by the winds of change, shedding the leaves of old,  as we die to those aspects, concepts, issues held within our lower natures equating to the first 3 chakras - base, sacral, solar plexus, colours of the autumn leaves red, orange and yellow! Laying bare the branches of the tree standing stark against the winter's sky! 

Dropping to the ground, the dead leaves of the tree turn brown, decomposing, returning to the earth nourishing the soil ready for the new cycle of rebirth in the spring.

In the winter of our lives, like the tree, we stand exposed to the elements, out in the wilderness,  baring our branches, our trees of self, discovering who we are and where we belong within the matrix of life, no longer needing the trappings that go along with it. Perhaps feeling like we have no protection from the storms of life, feeling unsafe, unworthy and unloved, all those deep hurts and wounds that may arise as we lay bare and open our hearts and soul.

Even though we may bare all, like the tree, in those times of vulnerability we have the opportunity to embrace the seeds of change within ourselves. As we are stripped back, exposing our vulnerabilities,  revealing our rawness may bring judgement, criticism, negativity etc however when we choose to dissolve these feelings within the sea of our hearts, becoming observers with no attachment to all that arises, we remain strong like the tree within the storms of our own nature, our roots strong in our connection to Mother Earth, reaching heavenward to connect with Father Sun, the light of source and the pure love and light of self.

Like the tree, we stand tall, believing in the truth of who we are, what we stand for, shining our true nature from within and without, always connected to the light of all of nature. For we are born of seeds as is each and every creation in nature.

In spring the trees produce fresh green leaves becoming abundant in new growth, as each leaf unfurls opening to new beginnings, new ways of being, to greater love and harmony. We are ready to grow with the wisdom and truth we have discovered by laying bare our souls. It is within the deepest wounding, immense hurts and vulnerabilities that our greatest growth occurs opening our hearts to greater love for self and others.

Like the tree we have the opportunity to grow higher and higher as the branches of self integrate higher levels of consciousness, leaving behind those aspects of our lower nature, deep soul woundings, so our pure whole natures surface out of the darkness of winter and into the spring/summer of our lives. 
The seeds of the new greater version of self have the opportunity to spread those branches of new growth, peace, harmony, perspectives and wisdom out into the world ready to share with whoever is open to receiving.
Our divine feminine and masculine energies merge and balance so we can be kinder, compassionate, loving beings with the courage to be fearless as we share our truth with others.

Stronger foundations of self are created as we anchor and ground our passion, purpose into each and every moment, gaining momentum as we converge on each destiny point along the pathway of our soul's blueprint, learning our lessons, clearing our karma, letting go of all other baggage from this lifetime and previous lifetimes.

 Are you willing to be all the leaves of you to grow up and branch out to be the greater tree of self, open to the light of you?

Infinite blessings of light and love to you!

Mysteries of the Swamp - Alchemy of Self

Fallen tree branch

I was feeling out of sorts this morning, emotions swirling around within and feeling out of balance. I was really tired and didn’t feel I had the energy to walk to the swamp, however, the pull was strong! I know when the pull is strong there is something important going on. I heeded the call for a walk in one of my favourite places in nature and that would be the swamp! Nothing better than a dose of nature’s elixir to restore balance and harmony. 

Swamps are Magical Places

Swamps are mystical magical places, like entering a portal to another world, the underworld, where all that lies beneath the murky still waters, those hidden aspects of self can be uncovered, brought to the surface and into the light of self. Remember, water is associated with our emotions and the still water that sits in the swamp could be revealing where we might be stagnant in our emotional being or life in general. 

Symbolically wetlands are areas of transition and each time I visit the swamp I feel like I go through a transformation or change on some level as I enter the mystery of my inner self. It’s a place where we can choose to delve into deeper layers of our emotions, like our fears, thoughts, beliefs and patterns, so we can bring those from the dark of our souls into the light of our hearts.

As always magic is in the air at the swamp if one is open to seeing and feeling the hidden mysteries that abound there and which lie within us. With the Full Moon Eclipse this week, we are in a 7day eclipse doorway, inviting one to immerse ourselves in the mysteries of our inner world and those of the cosmos. Discovering hidden truths and trusting in those to bring freedom and change. The wind was strong today as it pushed me along, accelerating my journey to reach the swamp. I could feel a cleansing of mind as the wind is to do with the mind. The winds of change stirring, shaking things up. It’s whispered messages were insistent. I love being open and receptive to the messages the swamp land wishes to share with me and not just me for I feel these are wisdoms to be shared with everyone. 

Spider’s wisdom

So, it began with the sighting of a small beautiful spider’s web. 

The message from the spider’s web was tame the mind, clear the cob webs, those thoughts and long held beliefs, don’t allow yourself to be caught in the web of your lower mind. Pull the weeds from the garden of your mind making sure you reach the root causes of those issues that hold you back. In place plant new thoughts, beliefs about yourself far from the illusion of your fear-based self.

Falling Branches

Further along the path a tree’s branch had fallen across it, the result of the previous night’s storm, so clearly there was a message here. 

This “obstacle” on my path was easily overcome as I could walk around the fallen tree so it was not going to impede my walk.

How many times do we allow obstacles along the pathway of our life to stop or hold us back from heading where we want to go? More often than not we are the creators of our own roadblocks to life, self- sabotaging ourselves from those very things we would like to be and have in our lives. 

How do we do this but with repeating patterns of behaviour, holding on to limiting beliefs, negative thoughts in our mind, driven by ensuing emotions, going around and around in circles creating our own make-believe story.

Or maybe those obstacles are also clearing our paths by providing another perspective to look at things or to approach things.

The message time to grow a new stronger foundation of emotional self as the branch of our old emotional ways falls off allowing a new branch of self to grow with love, enabling discerning action from a higher evolved emotional place with greater belief, faith and trust in oneself, opening to new ways of seeing, doing and being along our pathway in life.

Waterwheel of Emotions

As I walked a vision of a water wheel at a mill used for milling grain appeared. The wheel had stopped turning as the water had ceased running. Time to stop turning the old wheel of emotions letting go of those and any emotional wounding ready for a new cycle of emotional maturity to open to new and greater flow in our lives.

Connecting to Divine Love

Today is also a special day as it is the Feast Day of Mary Magdalene and a 22 day where extraordinary things can happen! A day to connect in with our own divine mother and inner child. To enter the sacredness of our heart spaces where beauty and unconditional love reside. 

The swamp was the perfect place to be within my own sacred heart joining with the sacred heart of nature in a safe place for reflective healing, wrapped in the nurturing arms of nature, sending divine unconditional love throughout the web of life that we are all woven into. 

When we operate in those higher vibrational states then dis-ease or anything not in alignment with our highest good cannot exist. So much joy and love in each unfolding moment as I tune into the energies of today and the Beatles song Let it Be begins to play in my head and I feel waves of joy and love envelop me and I say how can it get any better than this.

Farewell with a message from Crow

A parting gift, as I left the swamp land, 2 crows were flying above me, a simple dance in the sky and in ancient times crow was a symbol of alchemy.

Crow’s message is to work your magic through your own alchemical processes, looking into the mirrors of self, opening your intuitive sight, becoming your true nature, expressing your passion and purpose.
Reminding us we are creative and magical beings and magic is around us in each and every moment, all we need is to see, feel and believe it!

As I have said the swamp land is a magical, mystical place, a portal to other dimensions and realms. A place where we are able to tune into our own alchemical process to change and transform aspects of self, clearing out the old allowing rebirth and regeneration. Alchemy means to transmute or change the ordinary into the extraordinary to become your true authentic self! 

What alchemical processes are at work in your life and what needs to be let go of or removed in order to allow you to transition and rebirth the new?

The gifts of nature are always there when we choose to make the time to connect.

Take time to tap into the creative waters of self, letting go of any stagnant emotional aspects, awakening to greater creativity, magic and light of self! Embrace the journey of the alchemy of Self!

Infinite blessings and love
