11024621_876991029025790_2729280339936449020_nWhat fear is holding you back from your joy?

The fear of failure?
The fear of success?
The fear of being laughed at?
The fear of not being liked?
The fear of being hurt?
The fear of causing pain?
The fear of what people will think of you?
The fear of doing things wrong?
The fear of being alone?
The fear of your vulnerability?
The fear of being taken advantage of?
Etc etc etc

Fear is the ego's way of trying to get you to remain the same. If we succumb to the fear we never grow.

It is ridiculous to say don't be scared, don't have the fear - we all do. Growth is about embracing your fear and no longer letting it control your choices by stepping into the COURAGE of your Soul.

Make friends with your fear. Know it's just information. Let go of letting the fear control you.

The best way to let fear stop controlling you is to face it full on.

Here's to your courage 🙂

11059680_886036144787945_3891845741342540712_nWe consume ourselves with the need for perfection. The worry that we not doing things right. The fear that we going to get things wrong. This extremism holds us in a space of paranoia, judgemental, critical thinking and inertia that stops us experiencing the flow and enjoyment of life.

When we can let go of the evaluation of life, events, behaviour, choices into the extreme categories of right or wrong we can relax into seeing the blessings and lessons life is presenting to us.
We are all just human, doing the best we know how. We are all learning, growing and evolving ....

Release yourself from the pressure of perfection and surrender to the moment.

11114275_895438710514355_6643043435436158004_nSo many of us make ourselves small, we don't want to let the full beauty of our power shine through us. Power is a beautiful thing when it is lead by the Soul and not by the ego.

Ego power is authoritative, domineering, controlling, manipulative and challenging.

Soul power is caring, loving, nurturing, empowering, non-judgemental, patient, authentic and deep.

To step into your full power you need to embrace your own gentleness and your own vulnerability. For as long as you protect yourself from hurt, pain and disappointment you give your ego permission to remain in power.
Allow your heart to break open a little and your Soul can shine through. There in lies our true power to change the world.

Don't be scared to own your power. Each of us has the power of the entire Universe in us right now.

11139366_900705376654355_4607288651651980303_nWe are so good at thinking through things, at understanding, sometimes even at accepting and forgiving but if we only do this intellectually and not emotionally then we create coping mechanisms for our life and we don't give ourselves the gift of healing from our pain.

In so many readings I do, this message comes up and the continued guidance is that for us to step into our full power, to access our true purpose, to allow ourselves to become all we can be, we need to step into our pain and allow ourselves to work through it emerging more whole on the other side of it.

There is no shortcuts to this and it starts by letting down the mask of fine, the valuing of strength over the perceived weakness of emotion. We all have pain from our past that we have not dealt with and on the face of it we lead a successful and even happy life but by not dealing with our pain we put up defense mechanisms, walls and gates to protect ourselves and this robs us of real joy and peace.

This pain or hurt does not need to be addressed with anyone else in your life, it firstly needs to be acknowledged and given a voice. So take some time and write a letter to yourself, your guides, your angels, God, whoever feels right for you about the pain and hurt from your past that you are ready to release. Allow yourself to feel what you feel. When you ready light a candke and burn this letter with a prayer of release. It's time to let it go.

11390053_931357850255774_2830244349022063215_nSo many of my clients receive guidance that they are more tired than they even know and in need of rest.

The vulnerability that we feel in our tiredness is not aways easy to embrace. The pressure we put on ourselves to keep going, to push harder, to stay on top of things. Our never-ending list of to-do's and our desperate need to keep everyone around us happy sometimes borders on self-abuse. I have walked my own journey of ignoring my bodies physical needs and reaching burnout on more than one occasion. I just didn't want to embrace the need for rest, I saw it as a weakness.

Our bodies, our minds, our hearts and our souls all need rest. Surrendering to this level of self-care is vital for our personal growth. Rest is more than just physical sleep although often this is vital to recuperate. Rest is also permission for self-indulgence.

What would feel indulgent to you? Time alone. A walk barefoot in the park. Doodling, drawing, painting, gardening, cooking, woodwork, reading, meditating - what hobbies do you have where you become quiet and you lose time. Going for a massage. Snuggling up with a cup of tea while listening to beautiful music. Laughing with your children or friends. Playing. What do you need, to allow quietness and restfulness wash over you.

As you go forward, my wish is that you make rest and self-indulgence your priority and give yourself permission to do what you need to re-energize.

11393077_925304377527788_2118148661467616206_nEvery morning as we wake up the ego recreates the illusion of separateness. It is the way it tries to help us function in the world but the reality is that we are all connected. This is one if the most difficult spiritual principles to understand yet our hearts know it is true.

Seeing yourself in all around you is the key to enlightenment. It is easy to see yourself in beauty, to know that you are like the rose in the garden, from the same place as the ocean, to associate yourself with people that you like but it is not so easy when we see anger, hurt, immoral and deceitful behaviour, wars, famine, poverty.

The bottom line is that we are all connected in each aspect of life. Light and shadow. Both exist in and around us.

The very thing that keeps this all in place is our judgement. Anything that we judge reflects a part of ourselves that we have not embraced and that is what requires healing. We cannot change anything we hate. Only love can heal. So anything we judge either in ourselves or in others we hold in place with the judgement.

Embrace what you judge as information for your own healing. Shower it with love and you will start being able to heal it and step into your wholeness and your light.

As you heal yourself so you heal the planet.

11214704_956992497692309_4391463077408777503_nLife is full of complexity. Things don't go according to plan. People don't respond according to our desires. Irritations happen. It does not matter how much we plan, we meditate, we pray, we analyse, we hope ..... life happens anyway.

Our opportunity for peace lies in how easily we accept this messiness and surrender to finding ourselves in it. So many if us are so busy judging or trying to fix things that we miss out on the opportunities presented to us.

Life is messy, stop spending all your energy on trying to change that. Rather embrace what is and step into it with an open heart so you can learn and grow from it.
