When we were born, we were in perfect harmony with our heart and the world. When we enter this world, we don't have anxiety, depression and stress. Through the process of growing up and trying to function in this world according to societal expectations and norms, we distance ourself from that perfect resonance of peace.

Return to InnocenceThe spiritual journey is about making our way back to our innocence so we can connect with the peace that existed when we started. The distortion we have is that we believe when life is better on the outside, only then we will feel peaceful on the inside. We barter and negotiate with life – “When xxx happens, then I will feel happy, fulfilled, relaxed, peaceful. And so, we give away our power. For as long as this is the process, we will elude peace.

Does life rob you of peace or can you find your way back to experiencing the messiness of life from a place of peace? By messiness, I'm referring to the frustration of drivers on the road, to things not going according to plan, to life not working out the way you expect it to. Can you embrace all of it from a place of peace? When we learn how to do this, we start to become peaceful, and so we become beacons of peace for the world. The heart of you is peace! This is a genuinely power-full truth. Peace does not come from the outside. We are peace. We are love. We are light. And of course just as important: you have to watch for your own well being, you personal health. I try to exercise as regularly as possible, and watch what I eat. I even take a health supplement from Kratommasters.com to ensure I'm giving my body the nutrients it requires. Being in good health is essential.

The world at the moment is desperate for peace, and our natural instinct is to fight for what's right, but the very nature of this (even for the light workers) is still fighting. And the fight in itself is the problem. Can you be at peace with what is there? Can you BE peace, so that everybody that experiences you feels peace? Even peace when there is anger, peace when there is hatred, peace when there is drama.

When we show up to fight, even if it's fighting for what's right, it just doesn't help. Fighting and peace are not the same energy.

So, the change happens when each of us embrace peace as our center. Then we become peace and can distribute peace.

An essential boundary we need is not to let anyone, anything or any concept rob us of our Be Peacepeace. Nothing deserves that power. The author of Man's Search for Meaning Victor Frankl, a famous psychiatrist who endured Auschwitz, the horrific German concentration camp, a place of torture, suffering and death, said, “They took my clothes, my wife, my kids, my wedding ring. I stood naked before the SS, and I realized they can take everything in my life but they cannot take my freedom to choose how I will respond to them.” Many have captured this quote in the statement, "They can't make me hate them." For me, Frankl was a great teacher of peace when faced with unrelenting hardship and cruelty.

Through peace, we can spread light in the world.

10968406_870870542971172_293712546282027915_nAcceptance is the key to personal power, growth, change, forgiveness and freedom.

Acceptance is not approving, condoning or even understanding. It is the ability to be present to reality and to see things, events and people as they are.
It is what it is .... not right, not wrong .... just it is what it is.

So many of us are holding onto past events, pain and hurt because what happened was wrong or not fair or bad. Acceptance doesn't take that away it just allows us to release the hold that this pain has on us and start to heal.

What are you fighting? What do you need to just accept so that you can free yourself to move on?

10991157_872951892763037_1809750847809665508_nWe invest so much energy in trying to control our lives. We think that we are able to limit our fear, vulnerability and risk of getting hurt by always being in control. The reality is the we invest a lot of time and energy fighting. Fighting to make things right, fighting to make things fair. Working so hard to make things the way we think they should be.

In this way we rob ourselves of the joy of the moment, of the opportunities that present themselves to us. To the magic of this life.
The only thing we can control is our response to life and to the world. The rest is not our problem :).

Learning to trust life and ourselves and the wisdom that comes from our soul is key to a joy if peace, love and joy.

No matter how much you want to be, you are not in control.

A lesson I continue to learn daily 🙂

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.

We chose this human life so that we can grow, mature, heal and evolve - physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

11665615_939652786092947_7375861554043992509_nThe events that we face in this lifetime create opportunities for us to experience that growth. It is never a reward or punishment - just an opportunity.

Many of us use this belief as a way of avoiding the emotions that need to be experienced for our journey to evolve. Whilst there is always a reason. Our healing and transformation happens in fully experiencing the range of emotions experienced during these events. So don't avoid the emotions with the analysis of the lesson. Feel it. Allow it and the understanding will come.

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.

You want me to do what?0b5ce2c57cd8067df55f397ee2d60174

Surrender? Give up? Stop trying ..... are you mad?

The answer to these questions and many like it is yes. Stop running away, ignoring, resisting, controlling, judging, evaluating, fixing, sorting, protecting. It doesn't change what is!

The Universal Law of Surrender states the following:

Surrender is accepting this moment, this body, and this life with open arms. Surrender involves getting out of our own way and living in accord with a higher will, expressed as the wisdom of the heart. Far more than passive acceptance, surrender uses every challenge as a means of spiritual growth and expanded awareness. (source - Dan Millman)

The best explanation I have found comes from www.guidespeak.com

To surrender does not mean putting your hands in the air and flying a white flag, it is not defeat, giving up or failing. To surrender is to be wise. It is wise to accept the flow of life’s energy rather than resist it. To surrender is to accept “What is now” unconditionally.

FB_IMG_1431488964233By making a conscious choice at this moment, and in every present moment of now, to fully accept that the present moment is as it should be, then by surrendering to this knowledge you are more powerful than you could possibly believe.

This allows you to be in a state of grace, easy flow and enlightenment. Whether things are perceived “good” or “bad” is not material in this state of grace.

By surrendering to “what is now”, in this state of graceful surrender, you can see clearly what action needs to take place and by doing one thing at a time, step by step, inch by inch, moment by moment, as illustrated in the Law of Process, you accomplish what needs to be done, in your surrendered state.

The energy released in a surrendered state is a powerful, healing energy. This energy propells your healing, growth and evolvement.

To surrender means to embrace the concept that all is exactly the way it is supposed to be. This is not a cop-out, this takes courage, it takes faith and it takes trust. Surrender is not passive, it is not giving up and it is definitely not for sissies!

I have faced this challenge full on and the hardest part of my healing journey has been embracing the possibility that I am not in control and just because I don't like something it doesn't change it and/or make it go away. I mean the arrogance of thinking I was in control astounds me now. Only once I took a long hard look at my life, the full mess of my life with all its light and shadows did I start to heal. Only once I owned the part that I played in my life did I learn to surrender to the wisdom of being guided to make different choices.

Choice is such an important concept in life. A sense of empowerment is felt when we step into the awareness that we have choice and more importantly that we are indeed accountable for the choices we make but choice is not enough. The question is what drives the choices and that is where the Law of Surrender get tricky. Do you give into your ego, does it drive your choices or do you Surrender to your Soul and trust it to guide your choices?

Do you even know?

To find out see the table below .....

Slide1

This table is not meant to be an exhaustive list, it is not a tool to judge yourself against. It is just a prompt to help you find what drives you most. This life is not about perfection, so if you find yourself making choices from the red column, well done .... now you know you are human. Each moment provides an opportunity for a new choice. So if your choice is what do with your time when you have an hour free or how to resolve a conflict or how to deal with pain or grief, allow yourself to learn how to make choices from a new place.

ba0d8d5e82abb1f41f138c78ba5b616dLearning to Surrender to our Soul is a journey of discovery, healing, growth and expansion in conscious-ness. This requires courage and a willingness to explore the deepest recesses of our soul. There are so many opportunities given to us in this lifetime and previous lifetimes to aid us in our journey towards embracing our wholeness and growing, even though these are not always easy. Each person is unique and each person that I am honoured to work with has a different path to take to get to their place of Surrender, yet what is clear is the answer most often resides in healing from their deepest hurt.

Wishing you lots of love and light in your journey.
