Energy Update 17th April, 2018

What a build up to the New Moon, eh? Mercury has finally gone direct although things are slow this week energy wise. More time for integration.

I don’t know how you’re feeling, but the build up was so intense that I feel it hasn’t fully set in and feels like an anti-climax! Last weeks energy was draining, but there was air of excitement.

This week, I’m feeling a serious edge to the energy. It’s time for us to sit with that seriousness and for those of us that find it difficult to take things seriously, and I mean me, that is really something to contend with.

It’s reflective of the inner battles that we are facing and this week, the energy is showing us exactly what it is that we are fighting. It’s also bringing up where the conflicts and paradoxes lie in our belief systems. It’s deep and intense work, and I feel that we’ve had a break from working on ourselves. It feels like although there is a need to go back in, there is avoidance.

The biggest battle is with the unknown parts of us that are now starting to rise to the surface. What is it that you want to find in yourself that you feel you have been lacking in? This question is being answered with the energy this week, and yes it is pushing us to sit with it.

On a personal level, I’m back to needing solitude to just with myself and facing the shadows. On one level it doesn’t feel like it’s time. On another level, it feels like there is nothing to do except just sit with whatever is coming up..

In the background, there is a fire burning but it’s a slow burn. At this time, we are being required to use the energies of all the Elements – Fire, Air, Water, Earth and I feel that we are learning what our unique balance of these energies are. We are starting to come to an understanding of what we need to draw from these elements to make up our unique signature.

The pot is being stirred, slowly. An earthenware pot, heated by a wood fire, full of water, releasing magical vapours. We don’t know what will be left. We’re just trying to keep it all in balance before we are shown what’s on the horizon.

The magic of the New Moon is creation and I do sense that once we’ve worked out just what it is that we want, it will manifest. The trick is working through being boiled at the same time as sensing what it is we want.

One thing is very clear though and this is the sureness of knowing what we do not want. This provides us with contrast and so take that as a helpful sign. If it is not serving you, it needs to go and there is now space to release and let go.

It’s an odd energy and in Ascension terms, it feels like another transitional phase where adjustment is required. We are losing more and more of what we thought we were and this can be challenging when we live in world that requires identity. Particularly more so when we have a mind that needs to make sense of it all.

Feel your way through this phase. It may feel more and more pressured, but just as the diamond, the compression will make you shine.

If you need any help and support, or feel like you’re being squeezed, please do give me a call if I can assist.

What has Hafsa been up to?

So those of you who know me know how passionate I am about working with women. Over the last 4 or 5 years of doing this work, I’ve seen so many women grow from being shrinking violets to roaring go getters! It’s amazing and extremely rewarding to see this happening.

I’ve built up and awesome toolbox of teachings over the years that I’m so excited to share with you and so I have started work on a number of home study courses!

The courses will bring together the best of the work that I do with my clients, and include so many practical things for you to start doing the work on yourself.

A lot of people talk about “working on myself” and I think that’s brilliant so I wanted to give you a head start with this and help you as much as I can.

I am really buzzing about the modules, and the first one is all about building self-esteem has just been published so please do go and check it out!

I’m working on a whole load more so bear with me as it’s really challenging my organisational skills! I’m so pumped though and I’m loving the sharing and the teaching aspect of this work.

As well as building Self-Esteeem, I’m going to be working on all of the content from The Empowered Woman coaching programme and so this is well worth looking at if you’d love to have coaching, but perhaps you don’t have the money to invest in one to one coaching.

It’s also really good if you want to take things at your own pace. I know my One to One sessions are pretty full on and so this just breaks it all down and you can do it in your own time, and take it at your own pace. The exercises and the practical work are something that I know you will purchase once, but then use again and again. That’s the beauty of teaching!

I’d say it’s well worth the investment as the content is on point! The modules coming up are:

  • Learning how to say NO! – Great for you people pleasers out there that find it really hard getting out of doing stuff you don’t want to do!
  • Mindfulness and Meditation – this one is a great intro for those of you who want to really get in to meditation and reduce your stress levels!

I’ve got a couple of big ones planned for the Summer, but I don’t want to give too much away!

Please do check out the modules, and if you have any questions, please get in touch with me! The same goes for any content that you’d like to do a course on because I’m open to creating the courses that are going to help you the most!

99 Pathways of the Heart

Pathway 10-Al-Muqtadir – Embodying Power in Action

This is an interesting pathway and it found me on a day where I received some very deep and sincere messages of thanks and praise from clients. I’d read this pathway in the morning, and simply it’s reading was enough to echo within me when I received the messages. I was reminded of the Tao Te Ching where Lao Tzu says, “Once the work is done, it is forgotten.” And the significance of remaining humble in the face of praise.

This pathway talks of the role of the spiritual guide, and also the idea of being unassuming with the use of our power. It first explains through a story that spiritual guides sort of come in, use their power to help a situation and then leave as quickly as they entered the picture not stopping for thanks. I loved this analogy because it resonated very deeply for me. I love this way of working because it allows me not to get distracted by what people think – whether it’s good or it’s bad makes no difference. You go in, do the work, get out and move on the next person. Best way really to stop your ego getting in the way of the work.

The pathway then talks about the Author’s experience of someone who was a great example of this unassuming power. The person in question, “expresses an example of divine power in action, without spotlight or publicity.” This was a very learned and spiritual man that he talks about, and by speaking to him you would never know it. He came across as just a regular guy. I love this because that’s how personal spirituality is and maintaining it this way for me is inspiring.

When you do “Spiritual” work I think there is almost a stereotype of what a “spiritual” person should be like. If you know me, you know I don’t go in for all that claptrap because I think firstly that you should be yourself (warts and all) and secondly, it’s such a personal thing! I think it’s very easy to make assumptions about what a person should eat, pray, live like in this field of work, but at the end of the day, we are all human. And the more human you are, the more it matters in this work. It’s one of the reasons I veer away from spiritual communities as such because I believe in being peers and not in a hierarchy.

I started thinking about the role of the Teacher or Guide in all of this. After all, that’s sort of how I see myself although I’m not entirely comfortable with the labels and the titles. I’ve come across many teachers and guides. Some good, some bad – My view is that it is all experience where at the time I did judge it this way. I wrote a piece a while back on the importance of taking what resonates with you rather than allowing yourself to be led on a merry dance by a guru. I tread cautiously in this field and feel like I’m exposing vulnerability in saying this to you, but to acknowledge you have influence is humbling and to be honest, overwhelming.  I remember when I first started writing this blog and I had no idea who was reading it. I did it purely for myself and even now when I write, it is purely for myself but I’m conscious that you take in what I say which is why it comes with the health warning! You’re not going to agree with everything and that’s cool. We may outgrow each other and that’s cool.

HOWEVER! You know when someone points a camera at you and says, “just act natural”…? Well, I liken my experience to this. I am aware now that people are reading and that really pushes me to remain in authenticity and I think that’s a good thing. I could quite easily spout shit about how perfect I am and how my life is so wonderful, but it isn’t about that. As well as being a teacher, I am also a student of life. Sure I have life credibility and wisdom, but I still have so much to learn and I am still finding my voice.

I think when you first get in to this kind of work, you feel as if you are sacrificing a great deal in order to “save humanity”. I certainly used to feel this way, but this is all ego based and sort of playing the martyr and wanting recognition for the work. When you’ve been doing this work for a while, you begin to understand that it really isn’t about the appreiciation or the praise. It isn’t about being validated in this way. Neither is it about the criticism or fear of being different. Those are all things that are external to you and take away from the real reason why you do what you do.

The reason why I do this work is because it is an expression of the beautiful gifts our Creator has bestowed upon me. I feel that the situations I’ve experienced were placed in my path and the choices I made led naturally to this work. The beautiful by product of expression is the ability to help people simply by that gift flowing through me. It all sounds so perfect and wonderful, right?

Of course I can say that now! At the end of the day, we are all human and human beings have a need to be needed because it gives us a sense of belonging.

If you’ve come across this by Rumi, then you’ll understand perfectly.

“Knock, And He’ll open the door
Vanish, And He’ll make you shine like the sun
Fall, And He’ll raise you to the heavens
Become nothing, And He’ll turn you into everything.”

Essentially, for me this pathway is about surrendering your ego. I think this can be challenging sometimes because the human in us really wants to take credit for the feats that we’ve accomplished. That’s ok and we need to be aware when this is happening. When all is said and done, we are an expression of the Divine energy. It moves through us and it is surely through it’s grace that we are able to influence positive change in others. It is this energy that is expressing through us and our work. It’s beautiful but being the flawed humans we are, we have a tendency to get in our own way when it comes simply allowing it to flow. There’s ego’s to battle, and fear to overcome, and all sorts of healing interspersed between the moments of pure magic. It would be boring if it wasn’t this way!

This growth comes in the form of our nature, our character, our actions, our words, our behaviour. The way we carry ourselves is all important, and humility is sacred. It isn’t about playing small, because you have the greatest force moving through you. It’s recognising it’s the force and your ego has an influence on how you use the power you’ve been given. I learnt this early on in my career and with power comes responsibility. And we can only be responsible for ourselves.

They say empty cages rattle the loudest. I remember in the early days of running my business, I was at a mind, body, spirit fair. I’d just qualified as a Reiki practitioner and was there talking to people about Reiki. I love meeting and chatting to new people so I was going round talking to the other stall holders, as you do.

I met this woman on a stand who was a healer and Reiki Master. Having recently qualified and being as enthusiastic about energy healing as I am, I could feel my hands tingling. So I said to her, “My hands are starting to tingle.” Her response was one that made me realise the importance of humility early on in my career.

She said, “Yes. It’s because I’m extremely powerful.”

Erm…right. That floored me and I didn’t really know what to do with it. All I knew was that it made me feel uncomfortable and awkward, and didn’t leave me better than it found me. I’m sure she was powerful, but I remembered this incident when reading through this pathway. The Power isn’t something that belongs to us, and so is never taken for granted. It’s a blessing that it flows through us. It isn’t something that needs to be announced to others. It isn’t something to be proven or imposed upon others. It resides in all of us. It makes me uncomfortable to a degree when attention is drawn to it. Balancing this acknowledgement of what you’re capable of with and surrendering your ego is where it’s at for me. In Sufism it is called Nafs, and this is the first battle.

“When we find ourselves in situations involving healing or another outward, obvious use of power, others can project the archetype of hero or heroine on to us. If we accept this, it is a big step towards forgetfulness.”

It isn’t that we are not accepting of praise. It is more the acknowledgement that we would not have this were it not for the grace of God. Regardless of whether it is praise or criticism we receive, it should not affect us. On a personal level, I find it really challenging when people are singing my praises because from a young age I was always taught that all praise is to the Divine. That, and I struggled with self-worth for a long time and so of course that’s a comfortable idea to me!

As we work on self-worth and acknowledgement of who we are and the gifts we bring with us to this world, we learn to accept praise so that we know our value and our contribution. We surrender our ego and remain in gratitude that this power has been bestowed upon us. We humble ourselves in that we recognise that we will always be learning how to use it. We work on healing ourselves so that we can be the purest channel for that beautiful energy and we focus on our intention simply being the expression of our true selves for the highest benefit of all we encounter, including ourselves.

When I teach, I make it really clear that we as healers are not doing anything at all. We are simply observing the power at work through intention. The intention is always for the highest benefit of the person we are working with. It has nothing to do with us. We place our trust in the energy, in Source and know that the power of this is greater than anything we can do as human beings or even spiritual beings.

I love this pathway as it serves as a reminder that “We are as the flute and the Music in us comes from Thee.” Rumi, again!

Energy Updates

Energy Update 10th April, 2018

I told you it was going to get messy! We are in the release phase of this latest energy shift and many of us are feeling weighed down by this energy. There is a feeling of heaviness in all things, especially on a physical level. It feels like we are in a deep deep slumber. You know that sort of sleep that is so sweet and comfortable, it’s cosy and it’s warm and there’s a reluctance to want to get up.

So many that I’ve spoken to over the last week or so have said how they haven’t slept this well since they were teenagers. There is an air of being almost drugged by this energy, and a waiting for it to wear off but instead of a comedown, I feel like there is about to be a burst.

Stagnation is one of the themes, and a reluctance to wake up because although the world is still the same, you’ve changed. You’re changing. You’re expanding and you’re growing. There’s a sense of loss that is experienced from losing your old patterns and your old identity. It feels like disorientation and so sleep feels like a good solution.

The air is thick and heavy around us. A feeling of pressure that’s holding us down. This in itself causes resistance when we try and move. Stay still and let it pass. It’s almost as if we are in the vortex in the eye of the storm. Spinning in tiny tiny circles.

This time feels ripe to practice keeping our vision in tact. With so much swirling, it’s as if we can not even see where we are going, but there is a deep sense of knowing that we are heading towards something new and exciting. Always this way, just riding this heavy storm feels quite burdensome.

There are more questions than answers, and my sense is that the new moon will be the beginning of a phase of those answers emerging for us all. We don’t have long to wait and so keep riding it out. Keep sleeping and resting. It isn’t time yet, but don’t imagine that the time won’t ever come. We are in the midst of something brewing. It feels unfamiliar and uncomfortable but this too shall pass.

It’s ok to be in hibernation a while longer while this wave works it’s way through. There’ll be bursts of progress, and then back to hibernation I feel and that’s ok. The most important thing is that you honour your body, mind and soul by giving in to what it needs. If that’s simply to rest, then do that.

Take care, and if I can be of assistance to you, get in touch.

Love Hafsa

99 Pathways of the Heart, Healing

Pathway 9 – Al-Qadir – Holding the Center

So some of you may be aware that I’ve started writing regularly on the Ascension energies and as I’m beginning to really commit to living that experience and sharing what I’m finding, these pathways seem to be another way in which the road is being lit up for me. Holding the Center for me is about how I hold my own energy whilst feeling everything inside and outside of me. It’s about knowing that there is a constant for me and that constant is Creator.

As humanity evolves, we experience changes. We are connected to everything, and everything is connected to us. As the world changes, we are required to strengthen from the inside out in order to play our part in supporting the evolution of this great planet that we are on.

Ascension, the way I see it, is the growth and purification of your soul. All souls are experiencing growth and purification in this physical realm. This comes to us as life experiences, emotions and connectedness. We are all at different points on the same trajectory and as our awareness grows, we expand. We become aware of this energy that we are and we begin to take responsibility to consciously experience this expansion, whatever it brings. We know that we are more than just a body. We are a soul travelling, experiencing this reality physically in order to grow, learn and purify. As we awaken and become more aware, this process is one that we willingly and deliberately undertake. We become conscious of what is happening and become curious as to how. We don’t begrudge feeling it because we know that it is part of our spiritual path. There’s millions of people across the planet all experiencing similar themes and evolutions and so for me, it confirms that we are connected and that collectively we are moving through the different energetic stages required for our transition in to the next life.

My belief is that the soul has lived for eons before the physical body has. It has it’s own route map and contains the blueprint for this physical life. This connection with your own soul allows you draw down the information you need for this physical realm. Some of it we’re aware of and some of it we are not. We have our own individual blueprint, but we also have the greater blueprint which is for the collective. This is why when we are ascending, we will be dealing with our own issues as well as dealing with collective issues. I could write a whole book on this so bear with. If you are interested, there’s a few people I can recommend that you follow. Vaz Sriharan and Amanda Lorence are the key people I follow because they are genuine, authentic and what they say resonates. Find who feels right for you.

I’m really starting to feel a real connection and synchronicity between choosing to explore these pathways and the Ascension energies that I am experiencing. It feels that every time I reach for a pathway, it corresponds with what I’m feeling energy wise with this collective ascension as well as on a personal level. It’s curious, and interesting and I wonder if it will always be this way or whether it is coincidental. I do believe that there are no coincidences though, so only time will tell. It all seems to be fitting really well together for the moment, so it’ll be interesting to see where this goes!

Moving in to this pathway, it talks about “power” and this power is different from life force energy in that it “actively changes manifested reality.” Again, I feel great resonance and power with this because it is active exploration of the pathways that is supporting my evolution on a very practical level. This isn’t something I am doing necessarily on purpose. Creator is at work in all things and when you see everything as a manifestation of Creator at work, it allows you to move with the flow and with more ease of action. You feel as if you are being directed towards your path and you feel lightness and speed when you act. Maybe that’s Divine inspiration. All I know is that the actions that are Destiny Driven feel effortless. The heaviness is not felt so much with these actions and so this creates joy.

It’s funny because I still stand by what I’ve said about not really knowing where this is all going. None of that even matters. I do what feels good for me to do and it leads me to the next thing. When I listen, I am guided and very much driven deeper in to this path. It is the joy of exploration rather than having any expectation of any outcomes. This is a very different experience to the resistance from the past. I feel as if I am beginning to understand what it’s all about and the key is the learning. Yes, sometimes you do need to move through the heaviness, but even that is a gift from Creator. You learn to feel the difference between that Power at work your own forging of the path. It’s just a knowing and a drive to do something, even when you feel terrified. There’s a power that’s taking you through it, pulling you through.

As you read the pathway, it tells the story of a Dervish who was out one day observing nature and could see how Creator provides for each living creature. He resolves to go home and wait because surely the Creator will provide. This waiting comes to nothing, and he realises that it is action that activates the power of Creator to provide.

This ties in to this idea of expectations. We have an expectation or a feeling, and then it doesn’t transpire. Action is the key ingredient to being able to see this power in action. The same applies to manifesting in the physical form. Without action, there is no direction. There is no activation of this Power energy. This is something that I am learning in so many ways. My own healing sessions have brought up this energy strongly, and everything that I am learning and doing reinforces this idea of acting on what feels right rather than waiting for something to be revealed.

Expectation can be challenging as it takes us out of the learning and in to an idea of how something may appear to us. As we know, nothing in life is like this and so when we focus on wholeheartedly committing to the action, without any expectation of where it will lead, we suddenly open up this space of acceptance of all possible outcomes. There’s something quite magical about that revelation for me. It is about doing for the sake of doing, for the love of doing and for the joy of doing. There is no transaction here as there is no expectation. This has it’s own rewards and as you experience this pathway you’ll learn that there is so much to be gained from this realisation.

The human mind will always have an attachment to outcome and sees everything as transaction or exchange. The trick is to focus on the joy and the love of what we do with no expectation. That is how we direct the powerful force and see it at work for us.

“In all cases, this pathway helps us to remember that it is really the One Being working through us that accomplishes what needs to be done.”

Energy Updates

Energy Update 2nd April 2018

It’s about to get messy again! Not just yet though. The last couple of weeks have been mega intense for a lot of us. Plenty of churning out of the old and making space for the new. April brings with it excitement and fortitude, but not without a fight.

The beginning of this week is calmer in the etheric realms. I believe we have a rest and reconfiguration period this week, so take the rest and enjoy it while you can. This is a period of integration for some of us. For others, it is a holding space while we work it all out. We find ourselves wanting to do so much and the ideas are really starting to ping, but physically we’re too wiped to move forwards. Patience is definitely something that I’m working with! Also the idea of getting the perfect balance of allowing it to unfold and pushing for what you want. It has been immensely tiring, and to try and push while the energy is this dense is demanding and challenging. Giving birth almost, and knowing that the contractions come in waves to allow us to gather strength and momentum.

It is Spring. Rebirth. New Beginnings. The energy is so strong around those themes, but let’s not forget ourselves and the care that we need during these processes. Physically we are craving food and water to keep our strength up. Mentally and emotionally we are seeking comfort, encouragement and reassurance that everything is going to be ok. The last couple of weeks have shown us what it truly means to be vulnerable. This in itself is agreeable and disagreeable depending on where you are in your journey. It is a difficult thing to accept vulnerability. On a personal level, I’m finding that committing to this journey and to this life and sharing what I’m experiencing to help others to grow is what makes me feel vulnerable. I’m trying not to hide from it, but sometimes it can’t be helped.

The Earth energy is stronger than anything at the moment. We feel heavy and for me it is an indication that being on Earth is perhaps the thing that I need to work mostly with. It’s a strange sensation for me. I’ve always found the energy of other dimensions easier to tap in to and work with so I’m on a massive learning curve just dealing with this. I’m really feeling Earth energy, and I’m embracing it rather than running from me so that in itself is giving me my own challenges. Those of you that feel like you’ve always wanted to “go home” without being able to explain where home is will relate to this. I’m being called to write more on this and will do in due course.

You may have noticed that you are changing. You are no longer tolerating what you used to. You are more focused on what’s bringing you what you deserve. With all the changes comes a sense of loss and my sense is over the next couple of weeks, this is what we’ll be dealing with.

It feels like a huge void has opened up for some of us and for others, they know the changes are leading up to this same space. It is intense and it is interesting. There’s a feeling of losing touch with reality, of losing touch with people. Ironically, also a sense of losing touch with our actual lives here on here. It’s as if we have to leave and come back to things. More and more out of body experiences, but feeling these while we are in our actual bodies.

Fear is a theme that we are all working with ongoing.Fear is down to perceived consequences. When we shed our skin and transition to an improved version of ourselves, our main concern is how the world perceives us. Even those of us who say we don’t give a shit what the world thinks still have some consideration of this. We may choose not to care, but experiences that test this belief are what is coming up over the next few weeks.

At the moment, it feels like we are standing still. I think the real movement won’t be arriving until May but this energy feels like it is the build up. I’ve said this before but it feels like the big bad bassline drop is coming in May. Right now, we just need to get used to the volume and the beat being what it is.

The beat is slow this week. Physically, we are tired! There has been such an influx of new energies and we are being required to work in a different way. I can’t articulate this in the way that I’d like to as I’m only just beginning to receive this information. I feel it will get clearer, and when it does I can share more with you.

Recalibration and preparedness for what is to come. The rumble in the jungle. Seeing your true nature. Understanding solitude and independence and balancing with fair exchange and interdependence. It’s all about to get messy again so hold tight.

For this week though, rest and relax. Enjoy it before we’re shaken up again!
