Lunar Eclipse: We are the flash of light we have been waiting for

Depending on which source of alternative media you may have come across over the past few months, increasing in crescendo the past few days, the world was supposed to end the other day (again), or we are about to ascend as a planet into a whole new level of consciousness tomorrow during the Lunar Eclipse, after which the New Earth 'officially' begins. Wow 'officially'! Wow, tomorrow!

I'm the first to love, and talk about, a good old heightened, even pivotal moment in this progressive, constant, evolutionary journey we are all on. There is no doubt whatsoever that any and every astrological alignment and solar flare adds power to the waves of consciousness that are pouring onto this planet right now - waves that are only going to increase in strength for the forseeable future.

What has my bee in a bonnet are these 'this is THE date' predictions, either foretelling the official 'end of the world' or official 'beginning of the world.' They trigger false fear and false hope, and then when those dates pass a lot of people are left feeling deflated, or justified in their 'told ya so'. What an excellent strategy to make people give up on feeling anything is ever going to change. What an excellent tactic to make people feel that all this talk of energy is a load of crap.

I wrote a lot about the end of 2012 in the decade preceding it, in the context of it being the end of a cycle, and beginning of a new cycle. Not an end of world, and not an overnight new one either. A turning point. A crossroads. An opportunity for us to collectively get together in the ethers as we slept at night and decide: which way are we going to go? We had to decide this collectively as a humanity for our continuing existence on this planet, and we have all had to decide this personally as individuals on this planet.

There was a lot of hoopla about that date online, and some feel that is all that it was - created hoopla. Yet, talk to a Mayan elder, as we have had the much appreciated opportunities to do, and their knowing around this time period goes back a lot further than the internet, further back than the creation of computers, television, movies, and books. For them it was never about hoopla, and it was never even truly about that date. They focus on the bigger picture, the big story that was, and the new story we are in now and growing into.

There is a definite difference between when your child is pre 18, and turns 18. Child one minute, adult the next. But you don't go to bed on the eve of their 18th birthday with them looking and sounding one way, and then wake up on their 18th birthday saying "Woah!!! Look at you!" They still look the same, but in your heart you know something has shifted, and it's been shifting for some time - and it will continue shifting more and more every day the further they progress into their adult, autonomous lives.

On one level we need dates. We need big momentous hoopla occasions to mark the close of one chapter, and honour the beginning of another. But when those dates don't deliver what they apparently promised, or provide what we expected, what do we do?? Apparently, if one is to read some of the alternative media articles out there, one simply keeps moving the finishing line. This is kind of the equivalent of saying "Well not much happened that first day of Johnny's 18th. Maybe he didn't really turn 18? Hmm, maybe I got the date wrong? How about we celebrate it next spring and maybe the dramatic change will happen then!"

False fear is an excellent distraction, keeping people worried about what terrible things might be in store.

False hope that an instant or overnight saviour is going to come is an excellent distraction, making sure we keep our power at arm's length, keeping us slightly passive, making sure we don't do too much to play an active role in the physical, tangible creation of a healthier, happier, more conscious and harmonious world.

Some of this false fear and false hope is delivered unintentionally,. However, a lot of it is being generated intentionally and deliberately, both directly by those who seek to keep humanity in shackles, and indirectly, influencing our thoughts, emotions and behaviour in multiple ways so that we essentially keep our own selves shackled.

As this crazy part of our evolutionary journey reaches new vibrational highs with each new day - triggering the release of yet more density, resistance and power struggles, it is so important to know how to connect to that quiet place within and get to know what the following feel like for you:

- 'This is true for me',
- 'This is not true for me',
- 'This feels good for me to do' and
- 'This doesn't feel good for me to do'

Practice with little things that are you know that "I love my child more than anything' is true for you. Okay, so get to know from that feeling how 'this feels true for me' feels like in your body. How do your muscles feel? What happens to your heart beat? How does your breathing change? What about your facial expression? Your eye sparkle?

If certain decisions give you a knot in your stomach at the thought of doing something, either the action isn't right for you, or your thought about it isn't right for you. Try changing your thought to a more positive one. If the knot lightens, great, the thought was merely based in fear. If however the knot tightens, it is your body saying "mind, stop trying to coerce me, this action just isn't good for us!"

The exercise above is added here because there is a lot of stuff flying around online these days in both mainstream and alternative news media. Even if you stay away from reading any sort of news or articles, we sometimes can't avoid it - things show up on our news feeds or as we are browsing some other site.

This is what feels true for me right now: Humanity is shifting and awakening, happening to more people, more rapidly every day. Change and transformation are happening as more and more of us experience constant 'vibrational upgrades' and heart openings, that trigger everything from making healthier choices about what to eat, where to live, what kind of relationships we want around us, and what we feel called to do in terms of work and purpose, to growing awareness about the many aspects of our global systems that have worked against people and planet for a very long time, to the increasing tide turning toward demanding a new kind of reality in every life area, and going about the business of creating it, doing it, living it, embodying it. It is not about waiting for a saviour or so called 'the event', it is about living the new reality right now, as much as you can, in every way you can, in whatever ways you personally feel called to do. As you live and embody your own piece of the puzzle, it inspires people around you to live their own piece of the puzzle.

This sounds all too gradual and tedious, and yep it has been BUT as greater numbers awaken, and as the energies accelerate, the process accelerates. That is, in the past 1 person affected 10, who go on to affect 100. Nowadays, 100,000 are affecting 1 million, who go on to affect 10 million. Quantum leaps. Critical mass. We are the flash of light from the sky we have been waiting for. And if there is one 'big event' of spectacular beyond our comprehension light waiting for us, then woohoo, bring it on, but in the meantime speculating about dates is diverting our energy from the reality that a MASSIVE amount of light is here right now, more this week than last, and more coming tomorrow, and the day after that, and the day after that and so on. And you, yes you, are here to DO something with that light, mainly BE who you really are.

Consciousness goes hand in hand with awareness, and so not all of what we are seeing is appearing as 'positive'. We are seeing millenia old corruption and deceit coming out from under the carpet. We are seeing the death throes of old reality ego fighting to hold on to his reign - within us, and thus of course displayed on the world stage because all systems (politics, banking, business, media etc) are ultimately made up of people, all of whom have light surging through them while simultaneously to lesser or greater degrees have the old energy battling to retain power and control. This yuckiness is not a sign that consciousness is not increasing on this planet. It is in fact one of the biggest signs that it is, as all that has existed is now being revealed for all to see. Transparency. Authenticity. Like it or not, ready or not, the good, the bad and the ugly are being made visible. We are all being confronted with all of it.

What feels true and good for me in this moment may be different to what feels true and good for you. Don't let this, or anything you read, distract you from the compass of your own soul. Everything we read, that is read with discernment from a centred, quiet place within, has the opportunity to bring us closer to our own truth. It can contain nuggets of insight that make us feel, yeh, I resonate with that. Or it can contain stuff that makes us feel, wow, I so don't resonate - which just helps us to strengthen our own inner knowing whatever that may be.

So...may this Lunar Eclipse bring you wonderful insights, healing and positive shifts. May it release more of who you are not, and let in more of who you are. But as the Zen saying goes..Before enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. After enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. The day after the Lunar Eclipse will come, and when you wake up and the world is still turning with all its beauty and yet with still so much pain and ugliness, put on your Star Trooper boots and get to work. Plant some seeds. Spread some love. Refuse to buy into the belief that we are beyond repair, or that the Shift you came here to be part of will never manifest in the way you believed it would. It will, and it is. Play your part. The time is now.

How are you all feeling?

Rise like a Phoenix

What a hugely inspiring performance by Aaron Taylor as he sang an emotionally-stirring rendition of "Rise Like a Phoenix"!! Aaron studied Musical Theatre with my sister Krisi, he blew me away then and blew everyone away at his X Factor audition. You can feel his whole heart and soul embodying this song, it is a must watch for anyone who has given up on their dream or feels close to giving up.

When you are in the creative arts, you get a lot of no's. When your work is your lifeforce this can have such a debilitating effect on everything from your motivation to move forward to your sense of self-confidence and esteem. As a writer I've given up on countless article pitches, book proposals and other projects because the rejection just feels like a heavy force pushing that lifeforce in me down. Yet there is something about our lifeforce that just won't stay down, especially when it comes to our true purpose and dreams. I just love Aaron's story and his perfect, perfect choice of song. 

The many no's make you appreciate the yes's in a whole new way, and also strengthen your soul biceps teaching you to believe in and love yourself with more depth than ever.

Congratulations Aaron!!! xx

Lessons about living from dying

It's 29 years today since my grandfather passed. Strong as an ox he survived six heart attacks, only to have a truck accident one evening and that was that. It was so sudden, so unexpected, and no chance to say bye (which took my mum almost the rest of her life to make peace with).

I remember so clearly realising that we never know when our life could be over, or that of someone we love. This realisation affected me in so many ways:

- Tell those you love how you feel about them, and tell them often

- Try not to leave anything unsaid where you feel deep down you really want to say something.

- We all have our argumentative moments with loved ones, we all lead busy lives, but a quick hug and an "I love you" before they or you drive off for the day is always a good thing

- Do what you love. Life is not a dress rehearsal. No-one is guaranteed anything in terms of life expectancy. It drives me nuts when people say "I'll do that when I retire." We know so many people who passed unexpectedly over the last few years who were 20, 30, 40 years old. If there is something your heart really wants to do, find a way to do it. Be happy now. Love your life now. So many people live unhappy lives in unhappy careers in unhappy relationships, with an idea that they'll get to be happy at 60 or 70, but as Abraham Hicks say "You can't get to a happy destination after an unhappy journey." Choose happy now. Find happy now. Discussion on this point is most welcome.

Everyone reading this has been affected by someone's passing. What did you learn from their physical death that taught you something about life and living?

Solar Eclipse Sail Adjustments

It's about 18 hours since the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Virgo (20 degrees for those who know their chart) but its influence can still be felt today, and even throughout this week.

Eclipses tend to accelerate growth, lifting you up from one situation/perspective, and setting you down in another. They are often connected to life-changing events where it may not be clear immediately as to how life-changing something is, but look to 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and 12 months from this date for what unfolds. 

They heighten emotions, and trigger issues needing to be released/cleared/healed/transformed. They can bring someone into your life unexpectedly who will play an important role for you, and they can take someone out just as fast.

Eclipses often have a sense of destiny around them, and you can be sure that anything major that happens on or near an Eclipse is in a way 'written in the stars', and connected to some necessary breakthrough moment for you. So pay attention to any "a-ha" moments or new insights/awarenesses that are coming to you right now. The Eclipse is like a wind adjusting your sails, making course-corrections for you and facilitating necessary upgrades.

They aren't always easy, in fact they can be downright traumatic, so if you are going through a challenging time lots of love to you. They can also generate absolutely amazing life shifts and if that's the case for you, woohoo and congratulations!
Your immediate environment at home or work could have a zhoozy, chaotic kind of feeling as not only are we in the aftermath of the Solar Eclipse, but we are now in the 2 week window leading up to the Lunar Eclipse. This is on top of the huge energy waves discussed in last week's posts, that are still here and only increasing. Try to be mindful of this for yourself and others. Exercise patience and compassion where you can, realise that someone might be going through something you aren't aware of, and go gentle on your own self. Listen to your body, heart and intuition more than ever.

How are you all going? x

Humanity to Win

This morning I'm feeling to talk about the desire so many people have (or used to have), to go 'home', to leave this 'restrictive' physical body, to be done with life on this planet Earth where so much is hidden from us, and where humanity is repressed on purpose.

Your body is not restrictive. It is not holding you back from flying forward into the full potential of who you are. You have been made to believe it is. It is a gift. You can take your body with you into this New Earth we are all creating.

The New Earth is not a new place. It is right here. It is a new consciousness, a new awareness, a new realisation, and a new collective EMBODIMENT of who we really are. Embodiment as in, living this new reality and new consciousness IN our bodies.

Our Earth is not restrictive. She is not holding us back. We have been made to believe she is. She has all we need and nothing would make her happier than for us to use what she has to offer in a GOOD way, to acknowledge her, value her and honour her in respectful ways. If we don't, well we can't blame her for wanting to shake us off. But really it is like the relationship between Mother and Child. She doesn't really want to shake us off, she wants us to thrive and be happy and healthy. As she grows and evolves, she wants us to grow and evolve with her.

We have wanted out of this body and this Earth, meanwhile beings all over the galaxy are watching The Earth Reality show on their tv screens with wide-eyed amazement! Some of them are saying "I wish I was there! Why can't I have a body!!!" They laugh at us and with us, they shake their heads and wonder "How can they not remember? What the heck is that Veil made of?"

Others are watching us with sheer curiosity, most are cheering us on, on the edge of their seats munching on cosmic popcorn "Will they make it? Do you think they'll make it?" The Galactic bookies have been busy taking bets, and have seen a change in the tide....suddenly everyone is putting their chips on Humanity, Humanity to Win."

Some are grunting 'hmpf whatever' while others are freaking out because their influence over us is ending rapidly. Many of them are asking the question: "How is it that in their state of non-remembering, so many are striving to remember, pushing forward toward something they know deep down exists?" The Wise Ones just raise their eyebrows and nod in their wise way. They know how.

We have a light within us, and that life cannot be extinguished. No way, no how. It can be dimmed. It can be consciously forgotten and repressed. But it is still there. And the waves of energy above us and around us are calling that light to emerge. The dimmer is being increased to high. We are being lit awake from the inside and the outside. We are like the flowers busting out of the ground, and realising 'OOoooh so this is the greater reality!!"

We are remembering who we are, and with that we are remembering our power and divinity. Every one of us is an equal divine spark. We all came from the same Source. For that matter, every being in all the galaxies ultimately came from the same Source. We are all related. Think about that for a moment. We are all related. We are all connected. And we are ALL as powerful as each other.

Now is the time to use that power in a good way. In your body. Here on Earth.

How are you feeling about this all? x

The Age of Transparency

There is SO much happening energy wise right now I hardly know where to start.

Firstly, there is a LOT of healing happening within us and between us right now. Really, healing doesn't even feel like the right word. More so we are receiving 'perspective adjustments and corrections' allowing us to say "Ohhhhh" and "Aaaahhh", "Now I see! Now I understand! Now I get it!" And this feels like healing because suddenly the heart doesn't feel so tight. Our tension connected to something, or someone, softens. We are feeling love, compassion, forgiveness or even a neutral 'live and let live' for situations that may have pained us for years or eons. And this feels...liberating. It can also feel very emotional, so you may want to cry. So, cry.

We may not even consciously or mentally comprehend why we suddenly feel 'softer' or 'different'. We just do. Many of you may be having healing interactions in your dreams or real life reality with people from your past or present, allowing a final closure or new opening, allowing old dense energy to leave, allowing space for more of a lighter heart energy. Allowing space for more love. Allowing space for more of who you really are - more of who you always were.

You may not be aware of what is going on in your night time travels, but find yourself waking up feeling different, feeling warm or like something has happened, you just can't remember what. Your body remembers, your cells remember, your energy remembers. Your conscious self will remember whatever it needs to, when it needs to. You might even like to have that as a little affirrmation "I remember what I need to, when I need to."

Old covers that have been over our eyes and our hearts for years, or actually more like thousands of years, are being flung off faster than you can say 'Veil'. Today I referred to these times as the 'Age of Transparency'. A combination of energetic and technological evolution means that we can now see everything, and everyone, including ourselves, more clearly (the good, the bad and the ugly). Energy waves revealing more of our light and our shadow daily, hackers and whistleblowers revealing secrets, truthseekers seeking and revealing truth.

Speaking of revelations, the word Apocalypse is often associated with this time of Revelations. This word is from the Greek and Latin words meaning 'lifting of the veils', 'that which was hidden to be revealed'. So for those out there waiting for the Apocalypse, we're in it right now - thank God, thank Gaia! And (so far) it isn't this one big event, it is a series of waves. Huge, huge waves. Only unlike that ridiculous 2012 movie, they aren't water waves, they are energy waves.

Sometimes they are really soft and gentle, feeling like warm, soothing balm washing over our weary hearts and souls. Other times they are like a mack track, wooshka, slamming into us, awakening any remaining parts of us that had been hitting the snooze button one too many times. Some waves trigger memory, other waves are pressing "GO" on your creativity, passion and purpose.

Somewhat like labour, some waves are more intense than others. Sometimes they come all on top of each other, and we find ourselves receiving a quantum leap to some new awareness, direction or destination. At other times we are given a bit of a break, a rest, a reprieve, a time to integrate and embody our most recent shift within the multiple shifts we are all going through.

Embody is a key word here:

What are you feeling called to do more of, and less of?

What are you being called toward, and away from?

What and who do you want to have around you (and what/who do you not)?

What foods is your body asking you to eat? What are you being asked to let go of.

These waves aren't just here so that we can ask 'when are the waves over already?' They are the waves we have read about, talked about, wished for and asked for, for a looooong time! They are here to help us, so let them help you. Use them to ride forward into the highest possible version of yourself, the version that is here to play a part in creating the best highest possible version of reality for humanity and our planet.

How are you feeling? Do you feel a shift in your heart related to yourself and others? Have you had any profound healing moments or re-connections (dream or real life) lately?

Venus Direct: What did you learn?

Venus has gone direct after her 43 day retrograde journey. Take a look back at the last 6 weeks: what has life been wanting to tell you re how much you love and value yourself, how much you are loved and valued, who you love and value, (and why), and what you love and value.

If the retro period is a time when we realise the answers to these questions more clearly, the post-retro period is a time to ground, embody and take action around what we have learned.

Where do you need to step up, to match what your Soul truly wants, needs and deserves? 

How did you all go with the Venus retro period and how are you feeling now?

Syrian Refugee Crisis: people, not numbers

The news and images we are seeing of Syrian refugees is absolutely heart-hurting.

This is the largest mass movement of people since WWII.

Half of them are under 18, children like our children.

Here are some facts about what is happening, and ways to help. The more informed we are, the more we can humanize this crisis, and the more assistance those in need can receive, particularly the more pressure on governments to step up and help.
