Take a walk with me, sister.

WANDEROf late; I’ve been attracting MANY beautiful soul sisters who have been sharing their personal journey’s with me, privately. They have expressed how hard some days are; how alone it can be and also how exposing it can be to put your true self out there.

As modern day women, we are conditioned to mimic modern day lives that don’t allow us to fully harness our own timeless potentials; often our modern lives are dictated by things like –

  • New traditions **sometimes fads** (in the form of how to dress, act, eat, exercise, live, enjoy life)
  • Our circle of peers – sometimes we don’t feel completely ourselves in social settings, especially when there is a side to you that aches to connect, yet hasn’t found the right people to connect with on that level (but thank god for social media, right?!)
  • The media –  we are still bombarded by sensationalised images and stories that pull us back into societal norms, and often away from our independent thinking  – whether it be regarding health, vaccination, parenting, diet, lifestyle, religion/faith etc
  • Our elders – Our parents brought us up into this world; and often some expect you to think they like did or live the way they chose to; it is often hard to find a balance between taking your own path and staying connected as a family and knowing which rituals to honor or move away from.
  • Our partners – As masculine energies are more practice, physical, rational, dominant we often feel our partners cannot relate to us if we feel a certain way about something; or have trouble communicating what it is we want.

However; there is an increasing amount of modern day women, who also have very old, wise and connected souls; of which are beginning to be awoken due to many shifts happening within the universe (I won’t scare you off with this stuff, but I will in future share more about this if you are interested). I want to let you know that this is your time. I want to tell you it’s ok to follow your heart; your intuition and your spirit to that place no one quite understands (nor do you for that matter!).

Months ago, I was laying in bed and in one of those more often than not late night brain explosions; I just started writing this poem.

It was only a few weeks later that I lost that phone; and that poem along with it.

That was a sign to let it go; and to re-write it at a later date when the timing felt right. So, a few weeks ago, I re-wrote it (probably much different to the original) and want to share it with you, today.

It’s all about allowing yourself to venture into the wild unknown that is your spirit; a beautiful way to let the people in your life (especially your friends who you have feel disconnected with) that you are still you; but that you are growing; learning; expanding in ways they may not align with or quite understand. This is ok; this is what life is all about. Our differences; our unique view of our worlds and our own truths. Embrace it; embrace the magic that is you.

TAKE A WALK WITH ME, SISTER.

BY SARAH WILLIAMSsister

Take a walk with me sister; for I have so much to tell
It’s not going to be easy; some things, they hurt like hell

Take a walk with me sister; I wish to show you this side
The part of me that is changing, It ebbs and flows like the tide

Take a walk with me sister; I promise not all things will change
I’m simply growing into my own skin, discovering my truth, its full range.

Take a walk with me sister; sometimes I feel so alone
But I’ve learnt to embrace this, in myself I finally feel home.

Take a walk with me sister; there’s a freedom that I’ve found
This place it has no limits, no restrictions and no bounds.

Take a walk with me sister; I’m so glad to tell you from my heart
It’s time I must go inward, focus on my journey, on my art

Take a walk with me sister; hold my hand as we converse
Lets never forget this moment, this bond we can’t reverse

Take a walk with me sister; thank you for trusting in me
It’s your love and understanding that has helped me to set free

Take a walk with me sister; please don’t ever leave my side
We may change the course momentarily, but I promise I’m in for the ride

And should your feet ever want to stop, or to rest upon the sand
Just know I will always feel that too, we will forever be connected by this same land.

If at anytime should you feel the pull to wander deep into the unknown
Summon me, I will hold your hand, from the same vine I have grown.

My light is your light, let the path unfold; should you ever feel lost for a place to start  

All you need to do is whisper…….‘Take a walk with me, sister’.

What it means to be an empath

IFEELAmidst all the crazy business stuff going on with me since the new year I’ve neglected to share a couple of pretty profound things I have learnt and thought now would be a pretty great time to share!

This might end up being a long winded post (like the good old days!) so please bare with me!

Just before christmas, I was learning a lot about the different kinds of people there are out there (in a more spiritual sense). There are people called star seeds that come from other planets; indigos (also rainbow and crystal children) who are given special gifts at birth; healers; walk-ins; light workers… I mean, seriously. There is a whole other world out there! It’s all so fascinating (but something I will go into at another time!).

Anyway, I was in a forum with other people like this and I expressed my confusion about where I fit into all of these ‘types’ of humans. As you know, I’ve been embarking on a bit of a spiritual journey/transformation, I’m drawn to a lot of things – the earth, animals, the moon, the stars, plants, crystals, mandalas, sacred geometry…I mean, theres just so much going on, and from so many different sources. It’s hard to know where to start or what you connect with truly.

So I simply asked, where can I learn about all this stuff and see which one I am? Of course, the answer was not so simple (I wonder when I’m actually going to get the hint that I will never just be able to learn something from a book and me be that exact one thing and live happily ever after….). An interesting comment was then provided “Sarah, your name means princess and you expressed how you are interested or feel drawn to many different walks of life…. you are the princess of the multitude“. I thought “hell f*ing yeh I am!!!” See, there can be one name for me, after all!

sarahofmultitude

And here she is – All hale the princess of the multitude!

(DON’T WORRY – THAT PIC IS AN ABSOLUTE PISS-TAKE!)

So. here I am – Sarah, the princess of the multitude – Meaning, I’m bits and bobs of many types of energies and entities. I’m meant to just be the boss of many things! (aha! so thats why I call myself “the amateur of many!”…its all coming together, right?!).

Anyway, I thought that was cool enough. But then….. two days ago I was given a reading by another intuitive person about a situation/crossroads I found myself in. He said many things to me which were pretty spot on, but at the end he threw in “I also think your an empath”.

So, what did Sarah, the princess of the multitude do? She googled it. This is what I found.

Introducing, the key traits of Sarah Williams KEY TRAITS OF AN EMPATH

  • You have a ‘knowing’ – always seem to know answers to things you haven’t necessarily learnt
  • You get overwhelmed in public spaces
  • Feel the emotions of others and usually take them on – eg moods change depending on who you are around
  • Know when someones not being honest
  • Digestive disorders/lower back problems
  • Others confide in you; often unload their problems on you or seek your counsel
  • Constant fatigue – drained of energy when out socialising etc
  • Highly creative – express yourself through singing, dancing, drawing, writing
  • Deep rooted love for nature, animals – you feel that all plants and animals have a spirit or energy that you feel
  • Need for solitude
  • Gets bored or distracted if not stimulated – hates mundane tasks.
  • Always looking for answers and knowledge
  • Prone to carrying excess weight – usually as a way of protecting oneself from energy around you
  • Drawn to holistic therapies and healing
  • Excellent listener
  • Can appear moody/aloof/shy/detached/daydreamy

There are a load more…but, you get the idea.

Basically an empath is someone who takes on the energy of things/life around them. If you live with a depressed person, you often feel depressed too. If you hang out with someone with physical pain, you often feel sympathy pains for them, too. If your neighbours have domestics and they yell at their kids – you feel that anger and pain too and sadly might start emulating that. If you watch tv and something or someone is being abused/hurt/tortured – you feel physically sick. You feel that pain too.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________

A great (recent) example of this in action for me was when my mum visited in November last year. She was experiencing a lot of pain in her right knee from her arthritis that she could barely walk. Around the same time, I started getting shooting pains in my right knee when I knelt down and stood back up. It was annoying and getting worse. I ended up booking in to see a chiropractor (which I had never needed before in my life) who told me why whole right side was out of alignment and she did some adjustments.

I originally blamed it on carrying around my son on my hip, but in hindsight, I’m sure it was my ’empath-ness’. She mentioned I would need on-going treatment to realign and for maintenance. I went to two appointments. After seeing mum, and I was back into my normal routine and home; the pain diminished significantly and then just disappeared. Yes, you could say that maybe the chiro session fixed the problem….but, well now that I think about it, this is just one in MANY circumstances recently where I have carried the same pains/issues/feelings of others.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________

I must admit, I didn’t always feel all of these things. Some of them are only new to me in the last year or so, even more evident in the last few months. This is because I’ve become more conscious and spiritually aware of myself and others, so my ’empath-ness’ (yep, made that word up) has been vibrating on a new level.

So what does this all mean? Well, I’m not quite sure yet. But I am so glad to have a bit more clarity and understanding of why I am like I am, and that I need to embrace this gift more. It’s exciting for me to feel like I’m still learning more and more about myself each day; that my journey is no where near over. I love inspiring others on their own fifth element quests; but I equally love moving further into my own. It confirms to me that I’m authentic;  I’m conscious;  I’m alive and I’m doing all this because it still lights me up.

So, anyone spring to mind when you read the list? Are you an empath, too? Would love for you to share any of your empath stories!

Love, light and empath-ness

How to ask the right questions in a tarot reading

dark,fashion,fortuneteller,goth,vintage,arab-b7ff0baa9dffb25741000637cacdcd76_hAs some of you know I have been offering one card tarot readings on my Facebook page each Monday night for the last few weeks, to help me develop my reading skills for future endeavours.

The more I submerge myself into this practice, the more I am learning about myself, about my capabilities, as well as my not-so-clear intentions!

I want to take this opportunity to teach you how to best prepare yourself before you ask for a reading (from myself or anyone else!) which in turn is going to help me greatly with clearly portraying my intentions with clients in the future.

I guess I want to be less of a “fortune teller” and more of a “mystic mentor” – a mystic is someone who sees more to life than what is usually perceived, someone who has formed a union with the universe, in order to exchange truths about ones existence/truth/journey. As you all should know by now, I’ve embarked on a bit of a spiritual adventure in the last 12 months, and I guess I consider myself a bit of an alchemist; a mystic-in-training.

That said, I also feel driven to help others – at my very core, this is what makes me most at peace.

With my readings – my intentions are that I want to help you, to provide insight into situations you encounter on your journey – helping you to see something in a new light. To heal, to inspire, to support and to motivate. I have absolutely no right to tell you whether or not your going to have a baby this year or not; nor do I claim to have the ability to predict your future. (That’s more of a psychic thing).

So, lets start this again – shall we? Let’s set some clear ground rules for future readings together, so that we can all have the purest of intentions, and to really make the most out of my free services right now.

ONE CARD READINGS

How to ask the right question in a tarot reading:

1. Firstly, you need to keep the question open – it cannot have just a yes or no answer

example – *Will I get the job I applied for? (NOT GOOD)
Instead, ask *Can you give me more insight into what I need to know about my next career move (GOOD!)

Need help? Here are some great ways to start your question, without it ending up being a yes or no type deal…

* Can you provide me with further insight towards….
* What do I need clarification on in regards to…..
* What was the meaning of….
*How might I know when….
* What was the lesson to be learnt from….
* How can I improve upon my chances of……

2. Please avoid questions relating to time – eg when is my house going to sell? and also avoid starting questions with SHOULD you do something…. this is still a yes or no question.

3. Another thing to consider is the level of detail you want to share – I understand in a public forum, it’s instinct to be more vague so the noisy parkers don’t learn something new about you, but there is a key to finding a happy medium here.

for example:
too specific: How can I tell John he no longer has the job?
too vague: How do I tell that individual what I intend to do?
best, neutral question: What do I need to know about John’s further involvement within the company?

4. the trick is to not already have a desired outcome in mind.

When will I get pregnant? – as in, you want to be pregnant. This is moving toward the fortune tellers land…we don’t want to go there anymore!

What do I need to know about my reproductive health at this time? – This shows that the question is neutral, you want to gain further insight into why or why not something is happening/not happening.

5. Then there is also another key point to consider – to always ask a question about your own life, not someone else’s. You are the focus!

So, in summary – here’s the key points to remember:

AVOID QUESTIONS THAT RESULT IN A YES OR NO ANSWER
FIND A HAPPEN MEDIUM WITH LEVEL OF DETAIL IN YOUR QUESTION
STAY NEUTRAL – DON’T ASK A QUESTION YOU HAVE ALREADY MADE YOUR MIND UP ABOUT
AVOID ANYTHING THAT SOUNDS LIKE IT REQUIRES SOME SORT OF FUTURE PREDICTING!
KEEP YOURSELF AS THE FOCAL POINT – DO NOT ASK ABOUT OTHER PEOPLES LIVES

photo (19)
This is specifically to do with the one card readings I have been offering for free – with regards to different spreads you will be required to ask different questions and provide different information; but this is a great beginners guide to understanding what the essence of tarot is – and how to get the best response that will resonate with you the most.

It also protects me, because I have been naively answering most, if not all questions that have been thrown my way, and this has ended up with me being more of a fortune teller, which is not my truth. It doesn’t mean it won’t pan out or that anything bad will happen, I simply want to move away from that direction and establish clearer ground rules for moving forward with this.

I encourage you to come to me and ask the tarot and the universe for clarity, insight and wisdom. Anything else, please know that I love you, but I won’t be going there anymore! It is not capturing the essence of what I’m about.

I hope this has cleared things up for you, and look forward to seeing your thoughtfully prepared questions for the readings to come!

My beef with vegans*

go-vegan-I-think*By vegans, I mean some (a minority) of vegans. Yes I am making a sweeping generalisation, but in all honestly I thought it would grab the most attention, I feel what I have to say is important and needs to be reached far and wide, so please – read on.

3 years ago, almost to the day – I made a spur of the moment, cold-turkey decision to go vegetarian. I had my very last quarter chicken and chips from Red Rooster the night before, not even knowing it would be the last time I would voluntarily eat a baked bird again.

The catalyst was watching a movie called Earthlings –  and what was burnt into my retainers that day, 3 years ago, I still carry deep within my soul and will take some time for me to heal this hurt, but I’m working on it!

After seeing this film, I was angry. I was so pissed off with myself, with the human race, with what we had become, with what we were consciously inflicting on other life just in the name of profit, made me so filled with deceit, betrayal and heart ache. I was ashamed to be a homo-sapien. Since then, across my social media outlets, in my peer group I found I attracted the debate, the taboo topic that was vegetarian and veganism. Since then I had been a loud, proud vegetarian, quick to share links of tortured animals on Facebook, online petitions to sign to save certain species and participated in hot debate on the topics of animal cruelty, plant based diets and animal exploitation on social and mainstream media platforms, always quick to defend the cause, and belittle the ones who didn’t agree. At the core of it was that I always carried such loathing for my own race, in hindsight, was not a healthy way to live. I was not setting a good example.

I found myself carrying an agressive, hateful, and, now that I reflect back on it – a bit of a “I’m more evolved than you” attitude towards others and it wasn’t until maybe a few months ago (most likely coinciding with me learning more about myself, my spirituality and becoming more ‘me’) that I found myself on a vegan activist page on Facebook, where they had written a status about the Dalai Lama and how he wasn’t even fully vegan and that they read or saw somewhere he ate some meat dishes occasionally and that he was a hypocrite and they lost all faith in him because if he really practiced what he preached -with regards to practicing compassion and love, that he should be completely vegan etc etc.

As I read through the hateful comments, something in me clicked. I thought, hang on a minute – I don’t belong here. This is not what veganism is about to me. YES – veganism is a movement that is about bringing the atrocities that humans fall prey to into the light, it’s about being a voice for the voiceless and standing up for what feels right within your core. I get it. I honestly do. Of course I don’t want any sentient being being murdered, skinned alive, electrocuted in the anus to a slow, painful death (yes, that really happens TODAY) purely for our own greed and satisfactions, but what I have come to learn is that in order to REALLY ‘sell’ this way of living, we must do it from a place of love, not hate.

For example, once upon a time this would have been my argument:

Direct from that hateful place; my EGO talking:

If you are not vegan, you do not really love animals. You are contributing to corporate greed, feeding government agenda, poisoning your body and limiting its spiritual potential, destroying the planet and its resources, murdering innocent lives purely for your own pleasure, supporting animal slavery, torture and mistreatment in the masses, contributing to ecological disasters, creating disease within your bodies (etc etc). You, on average, consume over 200 animals PER YEAR – which in a lifetime (say of 65 years)  is 13 000 lives you have taken, all in the name of “yum!” Blood is on your hands, it’s time to wake up; evolve; be accountable; be the change. Stop eating the flesh of other animals, your disgusting and I am ashamed to call myself human.

documentsphotographs41308KeenesFarrowing17jpg___420.315_0_0__0

Then I would include something like this clip for you to watch: (please do so if you dare!)

So, how did that make you feel? Like I was talking down to you? What emotions did you feel? anger? guilt? shame? pissed off? at me, at you? Does it make you want to look more into veganism, or just crawl into a little shell and burry those feelings over a big mac, never to want to expose yourself to anything like that, again? oh, AND maybe you now hate all vegans, because they are bullies? Or, you might hate all humans because they are so senseless.

YES, it has impact. Yes, sometimes that’s enough to make someone have that “a-ha!” moment. But what I now see is that even though I might have guilted someone into feeling bad enough to stop eating meat, I’ve hurt their soul. Like I hurt mine. I have made them feel ashamed, and carrying that burden, the weight of the world on your shoulders doesn’t make you any healthier, wiser or more evolved. Hate just makes you unhappy, it holds you back.

Now, on the other side of the spectrum – coming from a place of absolute LOVE of vegetarian and veganism, I would prefer you see it like this, direct from my HEART:

Since reducing my meat and dairy intake, I cannot express how profoundly my life has changed. Initially, It was a challenge. I had to relearn how to eat. I was a meat and carb for every meal kinda gal. It taught me to go back to basics, and really look into my nutritional intake, my impact on the planet and helped me to realign with my beliefs. I feel like the best version of myself, without a word of a lie, like a fog has lifted from my mind and I can see things much more consciously. It’s like I woke up. I’m happier, healthier – I’ve lost over 10kgs, my skin tone is much more even and I have healed myself of a few health issues, I have more energy, my moods are much more stable and I feel so much more connected to the earth and truly feel like I am making a positive difference to my life, and the planet.

I’m so excited to share this with my own children and to reinforce their love of all animals by not having to expose them to the disconnections that the corporations have created towards animal consumption. Embracing a plant-based diet has enabled me to thrive in all aspects of my life, it’s inspired me to become more health conscious and to embrace what it really means to be a human – I truly believe the human race is here to be the guardians of all other life – the plants, the animals, the ocean, the land.  All of it is not ours to own, but is ours to protect. I am so proud of myself for being the change I wish to see in the world.

and then I would ask you to look at this beautiful clip :) (and yes, I just watched it and my eyes filled up with happy tears…reminds me I am alive and I have a choice!)

Pam-and-Edgar

thanks to Edgar’s Mission for the beautiful clip and image, and all the amazing, selfless, positive, life changing work you do.

So – how did that make you feel? do you want to be like me, feel how I feel? Does it inspire you to improve on your current habits, or to learn more about plant-based diets?

Whilst I do think most vegans have the purest of intentions, and also have extremely open hearts – I do think some get a little bit lost in the cause. For me, I feel that simply by exposing myself to the truth ( through the graphic imagery; the heartbreaking articles or soul-destroying real footage) It gave me that initial push to DO SOMETHING. Now, I feel my energy will be more effective by inspiring fellow humans through my own positive story, through my own physical, mental and spiritual growth, journey and increased wellness and to spread more love, to attract more love in return. To heal from within my own self, to then help heal others as a bi-product.

For example, instead of dragging myself into debates about what the Dalai Lama eats for breakfast, I’ve shifted my focus more on being uplifted and inspired by other amazing vegetarians and vegans who don’t preach, who don’t judge – who just live their truth, and are thriving!

vegie headFor example, one of my favourite vegan foodies Adele @ VegieHead creates amazing plant-based recipes, e-books and workshops and she is just seriously one of the most beautiful people, inside and out. She never bullies anyone into her way of living; but is inspiring people in droves because she shines so bright, that we are all like beautiful bugs to her flame! Now THAT’S how you get others to go vegan!

nadineAnd closer to home, a fellow soul-sister of mine – Nadine @ Nadine Lee Nutrition recently wrote about how she broke her strict veganism to honour what her intuition was telling her about what her body needed (at a cellular level!); I applaud her honestly, integrity and sheer love for herself – Nadine is also beautiful, inside and out – and it’s her vulnerability and courage to share things like that with the world that makes me see just how beautiful plant-based living can be!

Love feeds love, hate feeds hate – so I’m done with manifesting that negative stuff in my life (which did keep happening whilst I continued to harbour the hate for people who oppress other lives) and ready to embrace the love whole-heartedly, and will make more conscious choices when it comes to HOW I share my discoveries, personal views and journey with my peers.

Don’t get me wrong – I think its super important to see whats real – the good, the bad and the ugly. I am thankful for what I have been exposed to. I do think it’s important to truly feel those negative feelings in order to make a positive change for yourself. You have to see the extremes to know where you sit on the scale, to help you to understand the full spectrum of options out there. Whilst there is need for the extremist herbivores, as well as the extremist carnivores; I hope that the majority begin to FEEL more and to ask themselves where they think they truly sit on this scale, and to reflect on where you are now and ask yourself if that sits right with your core feelings. That’s how it can all shift for you.

Everyone is on their own journey, so its naive of us all to think that the ONE solution to the world’s problems is veganism – yes, I agree to an extent that a huge shift needs to occur, and I do feel this shift will eventually come and one day we will look back at how we treated our planet and feel the darkness of that time  – but in order to help the shift happen faster, more effectively and be one with a foundation of LOVE – it’s now important for me to leave those old feelings of hurt behind, and start to love myself and humanity again.

After all, it’s us who can make the difference, so instead of all fighting each other – we need to recognise that we are ONE, and that the one REAL solution to all this is to get to know ourselves better and work from the inside, out.

My first online reading session & 2013 wrap up!

ONE CARD READINGS

I’ve been learning some new spreads with my beautiful tarot deck, and have been itching to practice reading more people, as doing myself can be quite limiting in the intuition department.

Monday night I decided to start a free one card tarot reading session on my Facebook page. I offered it for 30 mins only, to which anyone could come and ask a question and I would shuffle while asking the question and saying the persons name, cut the deck and put back together and read the top card. Some of the cards I needed clarity on, so a few of the ladies had about 2 or 3 cards in their spreads. WOW. It was received so well, and I had a lot of participants, which kept me busy for a good hour! (it felt like I had run a small marathon!)

I did get some great feedback and connections from the free service, so I’m definitely going to make this a regular ‘thing’ on my facebook page, so anyone who missed out – there will be many more opportunities!

I could feel a lot of energy around the thread, as though there were quite a few people hovering over it thinking ‘should I ask’ but then chickened out or weren’t really feelin’ the vibes. Yes – I’m talking to you!! I know you were watching! Anyway, please know that there is no judgement from the questions you ask, and everyone is very respectful there so your question is safe and loved. Next time please just let it go, and see what happens when you put yourself out there…..you never know!

I was finding babies, new business and lots of personal development stuff going on! It was such an awesome energy from a beautiful bunch of souls, if you are one of my ‘clients’ – thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to do that for you, I feel really blessed that you came to me.

Anyway, this is just a short one (lucky you!) to say thank you to everyone who has supported me this year with my transformation, my discoveries, my growth, my ramblings and my healing. It’s been such a huge year for me (on a spirit level) and want you to know that it’s you who has kept me motivated to stay on this path and explore it more and more each day. I’m honestly just blown away by how loving and generous some of my readers, colleagues and friends are. You are all such beautiful creatures.

Confession: I was going to put a photo of myself today here but last night I dyed my hair and it went the wrong colour :/ (whoops…what is it that they say about blondes, again?!)  – so here’s one I prepared earlier!!

Next year is going to be HUGE for me. I can already feel it. I have clear direction, focus and I’m already working on some great ideas. I look forward to sharing it all with you and am really excited for this new chapter of my life….Now, can you do me one last favour for the year and ask the universe to send me to live in the Sunshine Coast in 2014….. PLEASE!!!

I wish you all a merry christmas and have a fabulous new years

I will most likely be in bed by 10pm but, please, would you have a bloody drink or 10 for me?!?!

So much love, light & gratitude for my fellow soul sisters

Get your shit together for 2014

shit together

Are you feeling that surge to just get your shit together? and conveniently, its the middle of December so you think – yep! it can be my New Years resolution to do X Y Z….so you have just bought yourself a few more weeks of fluffing around in frazzled land? And then by the time those weeks fly past, whoops! New years hangover, whoops! back to work….whoops…what did I want to do again?! SHIT! Its February….gah, I don’t know where to begin. I’ve missed the boat. Maybe next year….

Well, sorry to burst that little bubble but I’m calling yo’ bluff. I am qualified to do so, because I have THE EXACT SAME THOUGHT PROCESS. And you know what? after 27 years (almost 28!) I still haven’t been able to master the ol’ organisation/planning thing for my own life. Even for a Capricorn, I think the ‘plan own life’ section of traits comes from my floaty Aquarian side.

This year I have spent a lot of my time learning about the elements, and how they play significant roles in our everyday life. You can read all about them on my website here.

Next year is going to be HUGE for me. I feel it might be a bit like that for everyone, too. BIG changes, BIG success’, BIG growth….just BIG energy from all angles. It will be the year of the Horse, which to me represents hard work but also FREEDOM. More opportunity for us to break from the shackles and start to just do more of what we love.

So, lucky for you I’ve been doing my homework and thinking hard about what is most important to me to help manifest these BIG things next year. I think that by working from this angle, it will help to open your mind more on whats important to you, and what you really want to be doing with  your life, not from a career point of view,  but for love.

Everyone has to earn a crust, but at what cost?

Join me on my mission to get my shit together, and keep it that way to help me to be the best version of my amazing self next year, so that all that extra care and time can be put to better use, and I can continue to say ‘I love my life’ with 100% conviction and truth from the heart. Keen?

Firstly, its time for me to get all the ‘I want to do more of that’ things down on paper. Go ahead, grab a pen and paper and list the things you want to be doing more of, and don’t consider money, work, obligations for now….and divide them into the sections below, to help get a bit more clear on where you need your focus to go towards:

ENVIRONMENT: List the things you want to do (or add or remove) for your physical surroundings – For example, renovate the bathroom, plant the vege garden, move house, buy a thermomix, get a new car etc.

RELATIONSHIPS: List the relationships you want to nurture more, or drift apart from. Write their names, think about what you would like to do with this person. for example, visit grandma monthly, fly to London to visit your best friend, write your partner a love letter, take the kids on a holiday to Disneyland.

HEALTH: What things do you want to add, cut back on in your life? How do you want to alter your current lifestyle choices to better your health? list them. For example, green smoothie daily, yoga classes or retreat, do your first juice fast, run the half marathon, cut down on alcohol consumption, eat more plant-based food.

MIND: This one is all about how you intend on feeding your mind. For example, reading those books, studying a course, practicing mediation daily, watch less TV, learn another language. Could just be to ‘stop over thinking’. That’s one on my list.

SPIRIT: List out all the other things you just would LOVE to do, for yourself. It can be as big as climbing mount Everest, and as small as having a bubble bath once a week. Do you wish you could paint more? sing more? write a book? learn how to make a palette bed? what makes your heart sing? go on, write all those things down! Remember – no money and no time restraints here!

Once you have finished your list, look over it. Does it make you excited, or overwhelmed? or both?

Now you have your list, I’ve got something I made for myself to help me to organise these things into my daily life. Its a calendar for the week, but not one you write boring things on like when your rent is due, or what to get from the shops. This is just for you. This is to help to remind you to take care of yourself, and to do those things that will make you that super ‘amazen’ version of yourself.

zen life

What I’ve done is printed it out in colour, laminated it filled it out with thin white board marker – and now i’m in the process of sticking it up somewhere I can see it everyday. I will have my list handy, and when I am looking to update the list (could be weekly, could be fortnightly, monthly…depending on how constant the things are) I refer to the list and throw in the ‘start writing e-book’ part or ‘boot camp starts here’ as I’m wanting to mix things up. Cross it off once its been done, unless its a repeated thing (eg green smoothies).

The idea is to just pick one of those things for each day of the week. That way you are not completely overwhelmed by your 100’s of things to do. BUT you are motivated and clear in your intentions for each day, planned out for the full week.

This calendar is going to help you to get everything back into balance, so you don’t forget to nurture any elements of your life. For myself in particular, I know the element of fire (movement, motivation, desire) has not been nurtured enough in the past years, so I need to focus on doing something from this category each day until it becomes second nature.

Here’s what the calendar looks like. GUIDE TO THE AMAZEN LIFE

It’s called The Amazen Life because I know for myself, I want to have the amazing life I envision but I also want it to remain true to me, to keep me ‘zen’ and centred and focused on my spirit and it’s intentions.

You can get your own PDF version of this calendar by signing up to my weekly e-updates here or at the bottom of this post.

If this has got you raring to go, I have a couple more resources to share with you to help you to get CLEAR on your intentions for 2014. I just completed an amazing workbook by Susannah Conway , I really love reflecting and projecting and visualising – it’s helped me to really see what it is I want, and how to map it out and get it. I particularly enjoyed coming up with ONE word that represents my year next year, and I chose the word OPPORTUNITY. If you do this workbook or have done it, please share with me your word?!

Another one that was recommended to me was the Leonie Dawsons’ ‘create you best life’ workbook, you can check it out here. I haven’t done it yet but it has come highly recommended to me, and not to mention I’m absolutely in love with Leonie’s energy and will definitely be using all her organisation and business platforms this year to help me to become a successful business woman! her workbook is $9.95, well worth the investment according to my peers.

DREAM BIG

Last week we had a bit of fun on TFEL (The Fifth Element Life) facebook and instagram accounts. I shared the full range of mandalas I designed for my ring collection and asked everyone to intuitively pick one that ‘spoke’ to them the most…

So, lets do it again – shall we? Instead this time, I’ve added the full explanations and messages behind each mandala for you to gain much more insight into your selection at this time.

It’s pretty simple. Check out image 1 – pick a mandala that you connect with the most. Make note of its number.

numbered range

Then on image 2 – Identify the word associated with that mandala. Does it resonate for you?

range with words

 3 – This is a slideshow gallery of cards that each carry the full message of that mandala, scroll through to find your lucky MANDALA message!

 

I have already received some beautiful feedback about them, a lot of people seemed really in tune with what they needed/attract. If you have any feedback to send my way, I would love to hear it so please don’t be shy!

These mandalas were the very starting point for my business, I birthed them before I birthed my son last November. Needless to say, their launch has been a long time coming and I’m really pleased that everyone has embraced them so much!

As I mentioned, they will be apart of my jewellery range that is soon to be released. Although I would LOVE to have this collection out in the world and flying out my door to customers ready to reconnect and be inspired by their own personal mandala totem, due to the manufacturing process (it takes 3 days to make 1 ring!) and financial priorities, their launch date will be pushed into 2014.

I know what I’m about to do is HIGHLY unconventional, but hey – thats my style! I’m writing my own rules here!

I want to let you in on what my heart and soul has been working towards, for what seems to have been a lifetime.

Below is my amazing ring range – still in digital format! I do have a few samples already in the flesh that I have been wearing myself, and they really are more amazing than I could have ever imagined.

Like the peacock I am, I am so proud of what I have created and sincerely hope that you love them as much as I do!

Introducing….The Fifth Element Life MANDALA Ring Collection

RING RANGE

My intentions for this range was to create something beautiful that carried a very significant message to the owner. By wearing your chosen ring you have the ability to always be reminded of its important message, to take a moment to look down at your hand and be reminded of the big picture. Whether it be there to help you manifest new love, support you in a huge life transformation or simply because you need to practice a little more patience in your life, these mandalas are always with you, carrying the spirit of the chosen spirit animal and word as your little secret angelic force through this time. They remind you that you are never alone, and that everything is connected and anything is possible.

I’m feeling very vulnerable here, as well as brave for being extremely transparent on all this- It is with sincere intentions that I hope to get you on board with my vision and help it come to life, you get your beautiful mandala ring as promised, but also a piece of my heart – you are giving me the gift of living the life I want and I will be forever grateful for your support and generosity in helping me get started.

These beautiful rings are not costume jewellery, they were designed and made with the intention of it being something to wear either daily, or just when you need the extra support. They are Stirling Silver, 2 sizes (with adjustable backing) $88 incl postage Australia wide.

The beautiful bamboo gift box will not be available unless I can raise the capital to produce them, which may be a little while off yet but I will let you know as soon as I am able to order them! They are so beautiful, right?

Now that I have exposed myself and put it all out there for you to finally be in the loop – I need to ask you a HUGE favour!

IF you want to make one yours (or two or three!) I have set up a PRE-ORDER section on my website for you to place an order in advance. This secures your ring in the first delivery from my jewellery manufacturer, of which are being produced as we speak, due early 2014 – as well as helping me to finally be able to launch my collection and continue to help me spread my message and vision into the universe.

A percentage of your retail order will also be donated to charity – the chosen charity will be decided with your help earlier in the year. I have BIG plans for this range – next year I will be retailing them from my online store, as well as promoting them at some big spiritual based trade fairs! Then, who knows what life will bring! Maybe expansion on other jewellery items and home wares.

Click HERE to place your PRE-ORDER – and help my vision come to life!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me via the contact form box below this post… I am hoping to set up an FAQ section on the blog soon with details on orders, return policies etc.

No matter what happens, thank you so much for embracing the messages of my mandalas – and I hope they have brought you something special to consider, hold onto or carry with you on your journey.

Love, light & putting it all out to the universe,

Sarah xox

THE DIVINE FEMININITY MOVEMENT

masc

This post is a bit of a carry on from my previous one about the current shift in consciousness happening within me and all around me.

As usual, since writing that piece I have found more information and clarity on the subject, and have heard a few things that get a little bit more specific about the changes going on within the world, and collectively within our selves.

You see, the past has been filled with a dominating masculine energy. Women were always considered the ‘lesser’ sex, being brought up to believe we were to serve men, conditioned to come second (or last), our role was to nurture them, bare and raise their children  (with certain cultures placing emphasis on celebrating bringing more boys/men into the world, considered to be the preferable sex of a child) and men were always left in charge to make all the ‘big’ decisions.

Soon this imbalance of power allowed for this uprising of masculine energy to morph from protective, analytical and practical level-headed energy to dominating, greedy and egotistical energy types. For centuries, women felt so powerless, and begun to think them selves into existence, when the women were considered ‘beneath’ the men, they were left to compete with each other. A bit of a dick measuring competition, of sorts. We all know that men crave the brotherhood, the comradery, the bonding – thats where the football games, the fishing trips and the camping adventures play a positive role in them maintaining their own masculine balance, but when there isn’t any feminine energy to balance this surge in masculine energy (for example, take male prison for instance, the crime, the competitiveness, the corruption, the violence), it grows and begins to turn on itself. This is when we see an imbalance in energies and the negative side of masculinity is dominating, because simply there was not enough nurturing energy to complement it!

Masculine_Feminine_Continuum_Final_Outlines

Take the humble farmer for example – he was the original business man. He would work a hard, honest day producing goods to support his family. As the energy grew more fiercely, so did the men. They became more greedy, more motivated (by the wrong priorities) and subsequently we have seen the unfolding of the industrial revolution, and now the world is pretty much run by a handful of BIG, DISGUSTING, GREEDY, SOCIOPATHIC, HATED, POWERFUL corporations. Even the governments stand no chance against them. Great example of this, is a company called MONSANTO. If you aren’t familiar with them, I urge you to look it up.

Luckily, whist the masculine energy had been building its empire, the feminine secretly begun to notice, and heard the earths vibrations to act. We appear to have reached a point where women have become more empowered, and the men have become more consciously aware of the masculine heirachy that had turned detrimental to the earth and its inhabiters. 

It’s not about ‘girl power’ as such – it’s not about the ‘women wearing the pants’ or the the feminist movements preaching that ‘they are equal, they can do just what a man can! we don’t need men to do this, that and the other’.Yes, I feel this type of movement has merit and I do feel it is important for women to feel this way, but I don’t relate to this form of thinking exactly, I feel this simply puts us up against the other sex, and if we ever want to make a real difference, we need to come back together, we need to unite the masculine and the feminine and bring out the best in each other. The perfect combination, a harmonious union of energies.

balance masculine feminine

When I refer to the feminine energy, I simply mean the energy of the mother earth.  Like the water element, she is soft, sensitive, sensual, she feels the hurt, she shows great compassion to others. She just wants to give, and feel connected. She knows in her heart when something doesn’t feel right. Combined with the grounding, down-to- earth, nurturing and resourcefulness of the earth. She is warm, nurturing, she brings the perfect ingredients to living in harmony recipe we so crave.

godesses

Perhaps their was a focus on masculine energy to help with our evolution from the apes. Cavemen were relied on to protect and provide. This kept them growing, thriving, helped us to adapt, evolve and become what we consider modern man (and woman). Once their was less protecting to do (they no longer had as much predatory threat, had invented a lot of things to help create more modern and easy lifestyles) they perhaps felt they had reached a pivotal point to which their ego’s had now been nurtured so much from the powerless women, that in fact it switched them into ‘asshole’ mode, as I like to put it 😉

Anyway, I’m sure catch my drift. This is all just my own theology, I haven’t read too much into it, but my point is that over the last year, we have moved mountains in terms of releasing any pent up repression, and are fully embracing our femininity (this goes for men, too). By that I don’t necessarily mean we now wear floral dresses and lipstick everyday (although, that is happening too! floral crown trend, anyone?!) it means our inner feminine goddess has been awaken. She is in sync with the earths energy, and feels the emotional surges from the water, she is thankful, gracious and feels more connected to her sisters, more than ever. Its like a massive underground sisterhood movement, have you felt it?

I’m not insinuating that men now take a back seat, and women will run the world (aka Beyonce song style) but I am saying that right now, we are more important to the universes’ survival, and our own ascension into the next type of evolutionary phase – more so than ever before.

Its about creating the perfect partnership again. Uniting the masculine and feminine and moving forward, together. In harmony. AIR, FIRE ( masculine) EARTH, WATER (feminine) to awaken our fifth element, the SPIRIT.

This is what I’m all about. I’m embracing my sisterhood journey, I feel like I’m seriously vibin’ hard on all the amazing chicks (and some guys, too!) that have embraced the change and are seeking to develop upon their feminine earthy self.

We are ALL a mixture of both energies – of course, we would not exist without the two. Its now all about finding and then maintaining the balance of both types of energy. ALL of us being strong, yet compassionate. Being motivated, yet grounded.

To anyone who has lost someone. A dedication to Jess Ainscough

communication4

This post is dedicated to my dad Bruce, Jess’ mum Sharyn and all the beautiful souls who have now left their bodies and minds to rest.

Jess, I want to take this opportunity to give my thanks to you for being so brave, inspiring and courageous. To lose your mum is one thing, but to have it happen as a public figure, in the health and wellness industry is another. I want you to know that we all hear what isn’t being said. We, at the end of the day – all want what is best for ourselves, and our families. I have heard you speak your truth in person, and I felt your soul. I don’t see you as anything other than a woman living her truth. As was your mum, I’m positive. This blog post is for you because I just felt the need to share it with you. Deep down I felt you needed to read this message. So, here it is, for you, and anyone else who is struggling with a physical loss.

The end of October saw 5 years past the death of my father, Bruce.

I have blogged about this before and sorry to anyone who finds it hard (or annoying) to hear me write about him time and time again, but for anyone who has lost someone they love, you would understand that everyone grieves in different ways, and although each day is another day after their death, it doesn’t mean the loss goes further away, too.

Last month, I saw that Jess Ainscough publicly announced that she too has suffered a loss recently. Jess lost her dear mother to breast cancer.

The Big ‘c bomb’ is a hell of a dis-ease; and whilst majority of sufferers fight like hell to survive it, sometimes the bomb just detonates. It seems unfair, unwarranted and just plain unjustified some times. We have all been affected by it in some way, no?

On the 5th anniversary of my fathers death I wrote a Facebook status to him thanking him for my gift of life, but also thanking him for giving my brother and I the gift of awareness, to which he passed onto us as his soul left his body, unbeknownst to us at the time. It could be, that perhaps in hindsight, one of his purposes’ in life was to give us this gift.

It took me a while to accept this, but he knew he was going to die that day. He knew his soul was ready to move on. As hard as that is to acknowledge, I now know that he was ready to go, and had made peace with that fact, that day. He even told me he was….he actually said to me “i’m going to die”…. I just did the whole “don’t be stupid, your fine!” thing. I didn’t know how profoundly he was speaking, that day – that he knew his soul was ready to go.

A fortnight ago, I had (funnily enough) been reading a chapter in my favourite book ‘Conversations with God’ about death. It’s like the final piece of the puzzle for me, and now I feel I’m at complete peace with the lose of my dad and I want to share this with anyone who has lost someone they love. To tell you some things to help you feel more accepting of the circumstances around this loss.

I used to think I feared death, like most of us understandably would. After seeing it from this point of view, I feel more comforted believing that all of us die how our soul intends, and it is only the fact that modern medicine has taught us to fear it because it means you failed at healing, you failed at surviving or failed at living right – that we harbour such fear. This then feeds into our loved ones, who see dying as a massive disaster, sheer despair and disbelief. Great loss. What could we have done to help? Were we providing enough support? What if we had tried this or that method, would they still be here today? I have had these exact thoughts for years. Now I see it differently, and know that he went exactly the way his soul had intended. His body had served his souls purpose. Nothing was going to save him, because his soul didn’t need to be saved. ” Only to the soul is death a relief – a release”.

tp12

Some excerpts from the book that I would love to share:

The greatest gift you can give the dying is to let them die in peace – not think they must “hang on” or continue to suffer. so this is very often what has happened in the case of the man who says he’s going to live, believe’s he’s going to live, even prays to live: that at the soul level, he has “changed his mind”. It is time now to drop the body to free the soul for other pursuits. When the soul makes this decision, nothing the body does can change it. Nothing the mind thinks can alter it. It is at the moment of death that we learn who, in the body-mind-soul triumvirate, is running things. All your life you think you are your body. Some of the time you think you are your mind. It is at the time of your death that you find out who you really are.

There are times when the body and mind are just not listening to the soul, this too creates the scenario of when seemingly healthy, fighting, strong people still pass on. The most difficult thing for people to do is hear their own soul. It happens often that the soul makes a decision that it is time to leave the body. The body and the mind (servants to the soul) – hear this, and the process of extrication begins. Yet the mind (ego) doesn’t want to accept. after all, this is the end of its existence. So it instructs the body to resist death. This the body does gladly, since it too does not want to die. The body and mind (ego) receive great encouragement, great praise from the outside world – the world of its creation. So the strategy is confirmed. 

At this point, everything depends on how badly the soul wants to leave. If there is no great urgency here, the soul may say “Alright, you win. I’ll stick around with you a little longer”. But if the soul is very clear that staying does not serve its higher agenda – that there is no further way it can evolve through this body – the soul is going to leave, and nothing will stop it – nor should anything try to.

The soul is very clear that its purpose is evolution. That is its sole purpose, and soul purpose. It is not concerned with the achievements of the body or the development of the mind, these are meaningless to the soul. The soul is also clear that there is no great tragedy involved in leaving the body, in many ways, the tragedy is being in the body. 

Neale Donald Walsch, Conversations with God.

I now see that each of us – within our souls – already know when our time will be up. We all leave our bodies behind at exactly the right time. I know that is a really hard concept to grasp. I’m still trying to grasp it myself. It’s a huge topic of discussion, but this has helped me to understand why things happen, terrible, devastating, awful things. It also helps the ones who are “left behind” to feel more at peace, which in turn helps them to heal and continue their own souls purpose.

My dads soul has taught me to connect with mine, to listen, to understand and to ask those crazy questions. My dad’s soul left his body because it no longer served him in this life. It learnt what it needed, achieved what it wanted and learnt all it needed to know. It’s now moved onto the next, and I for one am so excited for my dads next soul adventure!

Ever since he passed, I’ve noticed a particular bird species – the Willie Wagtail around me all the time. They have followed me from Sydney, to Brisbane and now Townsville. I don’t know why, but since dad passed over I always thought as soon as I saw one that they remind me of him. Their is usually only one or two, and they wave their little tails around at me, dancing around in the grass or low in the bushes – as if to say ‘ hi darling! I’m having such fun again’ they are cheeky, extroverted and always put a smile on my face. I feel this is my dads spirit having a dance, having a laugh and seeing the cheer again, and helping me to remember to always do the same. He was always such a boisterous man, he had an infectious laugh. I mean, look at this fella? doesn’t he just look like such a character?!

wagggg

I stumbled upon another blog post that the True Activist Facebook page posted about a palliative nurses’ reflection on the 5 most common regrets the people in her care had told her. I would like to share this, because I feel it works well back into my above story, regarding how at the end, we all truly know what we want, we know our spirit, its just that a lot of us don’t listen, because we do everything for everyone else, first. The top 5 comments made were:

1. I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me.

2. I wish I didn’t work so hard.

3. I wish I’d had the courage to express my feelings.

4. I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends.

5. I wish that I had let myself be happier.

You can find the full article here.

These have really hit home to me. Right now, I’m in my late 20’s – I have so much life to look forward to. I feel a sense of comfort in knowing I will not have these same regrets that these beautiful soul’s did on their final days in their physical bodies. I thank them for giving us the gift of being able to connect with our inner most desires, NOW. TODAY. We all have this precious gift, we just have to listen, and then live it.

I’m sure if my dad was here today (and Jess’ mum too) that they would tell us that we are both exactly where we need to be, and that we will always be ok. After all, we have some pretty amazing angels watching over us now.

To anyone who has lost someone, I hope this has helped you the way it helped me. And maybe, JUST maybe this was a message from them to you that you were waiting to receive.

Love, light & soul journeys,

Do you feel the pull? The global shift in consciousness

meditate

Do you feel the pull?

Do you crave individuality?

Are you embracing change?

Do you feel an unexplainable urge to be a better version of you, always?

Have you grown tired of what you were taught and conditioned to believe?

Are you seeing signs?

Are you feeling more ‘awake’?

Can you sense something big is coming for human kind?

Do you feel a growing conscious towards your actions, and others?

Feel like you are no longer having fun, you carry the weight of the world on your shoulders?

Do you take your life very seriously?

Do you feel extra pressure to make improvements, be more ‘you’?

If you answered yes to most of those questions, you are not alone. I say yes to all of this, too.

So, what the hell is going on? Why is there so much back and forth in your world? So much hate and love, destruction and repair, war and peace, suffering and salvation – on a BIG scale, and constantly coming at us from all directions?

There are a lot of theories, philosophies and explanations out there on the internet. Basically, I’ve been noticing it more and more as I continue to change my ways, learn more about myself – and its a common theme that it all stems back to this – the global shift in consciousness.

We are embarking on times where a big change is coming. A time where we, as individuals begin to awaken our inner selves and find a new voice, a new confidence and self-mastery.

It has been playing out for years now, and as time progresses in this shift, the movement grows deeper, thicker, faster and stronger – a domino affect from the vibrations we omit when we shift our own conscious thoughts to these new ways of thinking, feeling and being. We are changing on a CELLULAR LEVEL.

You are apart of the universes’ grand plans to change. Don’t worry if you haven’t felt it, it doesn’t make you any less important, any less special. You too have importance in all of this, you are helping us to understand everything better, where there is yin their is yang to balance it. For how do we know what light is, if we do not know what dark is first?

light

It is no coincidence that you feel unusual connections to people you normally wouldn’t like/vibe with, or that you see things at the right time and place in your life, that you can’t explain why you feel a sudden urge to do something different, that you have a confidence to break from the pack, that other people seem to be doing and saying the same thing as you, at the same time without it being planned. You share the same interests, you try new things at the same time.

There are underground movements happening in the masses based on health, wellness, fitness, spirituality, creative industries, self expression, personal growth, healing, DIY, getting back to basics, nature, organic, cleaning living, detox, aid work, charity, less material wealth and people are choosing to follow careers they are passionate about, that feed their soul more than their wallets.

This is not a phase. It is going from strength to strength. Sure, it’s level of potency depends on what circle you run with, but once you start noticing one thing, it will always lead to another – and sooner or later, the old stuff becomes less interesting, less important and the new stuff becomes your mission. Your passion. Your purpose.

Fascinated with symbols? Always seeing triangles, circles, mandalas, the moon? It’s in the latest fashions, film clips, all over social media. This is connected too. Its your DNA relating to its origins – it’s called sacred geometry. It’s cellular memory. All life started as geometric shapes (this is a very in depth tangent – will do a separate post on this topic).

Are you noticing we are being urged to get off devices, enjoy the little things, live the life the quotes say. Quotes are everywhere, inspiration coming at us left, right and centre. We are living in a time where no longer are we VICTIMS to our genetics, our upbringing, our disposition or ourselves – we are OWNING our own desires, our true selves and one by one, are beginning to see that we are the MASTERS of our own destiny, our own lives. We have the control. We have the power to do anything, to say anything – to inspire others to break out too.

connection2

But why is there still so much devastation, so much violence and unrest in society, if this shift is taking place?

In my understanding, it’s because as much as we know how to love well, we also know how to fear well, too. (This goes back to the light and dark topic).

Our two most natural states are in fear, or in love. We are afraid. We resist change because it is a feeling we do not know well. We fear the unknown. We are comfortable with what we know, and have always known – for generations upon generations. The religion-based wars and battles amongst the corporations ALL have one common discourse – they do not embrace individuality. For, if you are an individual, you are harder to control. We have been conditioned to focus more on the rules bestowed upon us from the “powerful” and have in turn, disconnected our intuition, our individual thought and our own power. We have been taught that we are less, in all aspects – we must fear them.

It is only natural to resist change, for what we already know is much ‘safer’ to rely on.

Thankfully, times are changing. I have been seeing the signs – left, right and centre. I ask a question, I get the answer. It is right there if I place my consciousness upon it. I personally no longer feel like a victim, I no longer feel afraid or insecure – I have a voice, I have an individual spirit who wants to dance to its own freakin’ beat. I don’t care if my fish pond is small, my outreach of contacts is minute – I no longer fear failure.

WE ARE SO POWERFUL. You are not just one person, you are one person – in a vast sea of individuals who also happen to feel the way you do, about a lot of things. Things we haven’t felt before. We are entering uncharted waters ahead, but we are together. We choose our own path, we think our own thoughts and live our own lives, but we do it in syncronocity. That is a beautiful and powerful place to be.

What am I referring to, specifically? Well, I can only speak upon my own path – but in a very short amount of time I have discovered that the foods I was brought up on are not right for my body to thrive and grow and be conscious on, we have the ability to be able to heal ourselves of almost anything (if that is our souls purpose to do so), the animals on this planet are not here for humans – they also have their own journeys and purpose in the circle and cycle of life, I have a beautiful mind, body & soul to which I never once acknowledged its power up until recent times, there is a god, but not the way I have been taught – WE ARE GOD, we all have the same power as him (and this global shift in consciousness proves this theory because of the monumentous changes that are unfolding before us are coming to fruition) the natural world we live in plays a crucial role on our evolution and survival and I for one now know to nurture mother nature and her gifts, in order to restore her faith in us as carers of this planet, we are all connected in ways we cannot imagine, and the world is small and we ALL play an important role in evolution, natural disasters and wars are not a coincidence, they are not just random occurrences. (I could go on, but I hope you catch my drift).

How can you help to shift your conscious?

Start by paying attention. Follow your intuition, listen to your gut. Ask questions. Read, read, read. Be open minded. Pay attention to your thoughts – try to only think only positive ones. Don’t pay attention to the negitive news stories. Put your energy into doing what you love. Stop hatin’. Love yourself. Don’t do anything out of fear. Ditch the victim mentality. Put yourself back in power. Care for yourself, nurture your needs. Don’t fight it. Let it be. Go with the flow. Embrace your flaws. Own your power. Fear nothing. Join the revolution. Shift the gears. Be strong. Be yourself.

And, if you’re not sure what to think of all this – check out these amazing individuals who all begun as little babies like you and I, who evolved and shifted their conscious and decided to be individuals, and to help unite those individuals and move them up higher to the next level. Well-being is ours, if we want it. If we choose it.

Viva la-revolution!
