Ascension Energy Update, 15th April, 2019

This is your Ascension Energy Update for this week. It feels like the calm before the storm. I know in the previous update we talked about chaos. Following that the theme has been “letting go.” Surprise surprise!

It has been a period of change for many. It isn’t necessarily letting go that we’re working with. It feels like a deeper energy. Following the chaos, this week is sombre, quiet, moody. It feels like the calm after the storm.

The storm has happened and now we are dealing with the aftermath. It feels like there has been a massive shift but everything feels like it’s on hold. It’s almost as if we are all grieving for what we have lost through the storm.

It’s an interesting energy this one. It comes in waves and it seems to be pulling up reminders of what has gone before. It has a distinct and determined feel to it. A sense of knowing that the lesson must be learnt in order to progress forwards.

There have been two major themes in the healing room. The first is grieving for the old you. Reflecting on the lessons of the past and realising that you are just not the same anymore. The chaos has changed you for the better and a feeling of not being done with just yet.

The second major theme in the healing room has been this experience of two extreme emotions and an awareness that they can exist in the same timeline. We can be grieving for one part at the same time as looking forward to the future.

The energies are working with us to really help us to understand this idea of Unity Consciousness. Although our experiences may be extremes of one emotion or the other, we are being shown that these polar opposites can exist at the same time in the same place and realising this actually helps us to move forward. For example, experiencing amazing success at a time as grieving for a loved one about to leave. Although it may feel that one taints the other, it’s understanding that there is much to be gained from both experiences.

The calm sets in to invite you to reflect. It feels like much has been overcome and this empty space feels like a void. A big, open expansive place. We are in another holding place awaiting another big shift which I feel will follow mid May.

This is a time to take stock, stop and smell the roses.

Amidst all of this reflection, take time for gratitude. We may have lost things and people that have been dear to us but we need to focus on what we were grateful for. When we lose something, we appreciate it’s value in our life and what it taught us. Whether it is a lesson, a person, an experience, the ascension process is calling us to understand gratitude at a whole new level.

Everything will change. I smell that in the air. Now is the time to be asking yourself what is it that you want to create for yourself? What is it that you want to manifest? How can you prepare for it? What else needs to be lost so that the real you can be found?

The next few weeks will be a period of evaluation as there is certainly more shedding to be done. It feels like it’s going to be a more practical shedding though. Well, it is spring cleaning now. It’s the mental and emotional spring cleaning that is much needed at this time.

It feels like we are going to become acutely aware of the resonances of old energy that are lingering. Time to dot the I’s and cross the T’s and tend to any unfinished business by facing it head on. It may feel difficult, yet necessary for you to move on in peace.

Challenges do lie ahead but enjoy this rest period while it lasts! Mercury is out the shadow phase from the 16th and that creates some more freedom of movement with your emotions. Don’t be surprised though if it feels like nothing is happening. Just keep plodding away with the inner work as there’s plenty happening upstairs that you’re probably not seeing. The inner work will pay off though.

And to manifest, you have to start as you mean to go on. Begin by taking action, even if it’s one thing that you change. Whether that’s a 10 minute meditation or some fresh air every day. The Universe needs to see you start to live like you believe it!

It is a great time for manifesting though so get on it! Make that vision board and lose the expectation of how you think it will be delivered. There’s a plan greater than yours. Be open to it!

Until next time…stay in your own vibe!

Ascension Energy Update, 4th April 2019

This is your Ascension energy update for the week and what a week it has been. In fact, it’s been a couple of weeks since I last did an update and that’s because I’m going through my own upgrading process at the moment and trying to keep up with everything has been a bit of a challenge!

I daren’t speak too soon but I do feel like we have all made a massive leap over the last couple of weeks. It’s not a noticeable leap, but that heavy energy has shifted. Some of us may still be working our way through it but bear with because it’ll lift.

There has been a big shift and the most noticeable thing is that it isn’t what we thought it would be. We have these ideas about what moving from one dimension to the other will feel like. The surprise element is that it still feels like being human!

Yes we are evolving through this Ascension process. In the third dimension, life is about just life and nothing beyond. The 4th and fifth dimensions teach us that there is more to life than what we see. We will always hold the perception that as we ascend up through the dimensions, by some miracle we will no longer have the human experience or that we will be bothered by nothing. The irony is that the very idea is your human speaking.

We are always back and forth between the different dimensions because the bulk of the healing takes place here and now in the 3D world. This is where you have the experiences. This is the playground, the simulation and as you learn your lessons, you get deeper in to the other dimensions but still, you experience them in this reality, in this physical realm.

It feels like we have been in the treacle like thickness of chaos over the last couple of weeks. One of things that we are learning about is our capacity to hold the energies. Learning to hold your own energy is essential because it allows you to do more and more and deliver your purpose.

The chaos has felt overwhelming but it seems that we are beginning to find our own rhythm with it all. For a lot of people, it’s pulled them towards healing or meditation and the theme seems to be very much around self-healing.

One of the big things that chaos teaches us is that we need to be responsible for ourselves. I’ve seen this massively in the healing room this week. What can I do to own my choices? How can I be at peace with this much responsibility? How can I trust my own decisions. I’ll be exploring all these in the videos that I’ll be doing over the coming weeks.

We all seem to feeling that deeper pull of what we love. Resistance seems to be another big theme. There is still much to be discovered in the shadows. What’s interesting is that this idea of love and light, rainbows and unicorns fast loses it’s appeal when we start getting real. It seems that the Universe is showing us how to get real by hitting us in the face with what life is throwing at us.

For myself and for many of my clients, the last couple of weeks have been about getting real. Not just getting real and facing the deep dark truths that we want to run from. The reality of where we are at right now, regardless of whether that’s our ideal situation or not. We see a glimmer of possibility shining on the horizon as we move through this big shift, but all that glitters comes with some life lessons and don’t we know it.

It feels like a pushy energy but in fact it is pulling us more towards what we want and giving us situations that show us the contrast. It feels like make or break time.

The future is in your hands. You just need to decide what it is and go after that on the understanding that it may not look like what you expected!

I feel April will bring many happy surprises though! A playful energy is in the air and this brings with it a need for joy. We create this through surrendering the resistance, through being truly grateful for what we have and most importantly, not taking it all too seriously.

The heaviness is passing…like a kidney stone…but it really is shifting. The dawn of a new era awaits and it’s full of exciting possibilities. Isn’t that what spring is all about?!

I’m off to leap in the meadows…proverbially of course!

If you need help releasing your resistance, please give me a shout!

Ascension Energy Update, 12th March, 2019

This is your ascension energy update for this week. I sort of get the feeling you get when you’ve stepped off the rollercoaster and you don’t know whether you’re coming or going. All you know is that you’ve had a massive rush of blood to the head and you’re still spinning!

It’s been a strange few weeks, almost surreal for a lot of us. The energies have been ramping up for the last month or so and it feels like change is on the horizon. For many of us, 2018 was a chaotic year full of life lessons. 2019 feels a lot calmer and time has slowed down significantly.

Collectively, I feel that reflection is a theme in all senses of the word. We’re looking back and looking forward simultaneously. We’re also really starting to open up in terms of what is being reflected back at us. There may be more lessons for some of us and for others, there may be pure gold that dazzles and blinds us. I feel it’s back and forth between the past and future dimensions quite rapidly to navigate these energies.

It’s difficult to keep up when you’re working deeply with your past but at the same time looking forward to your future. We are always creating from this present moment and it feels like we are learning something quite unique at the moment.

Just as when you learn to drive, you have to multitask – the energy feels a bit like that. It’s overwhelming at first but when you realise that this is how it’s going to be from now on, you begin to start working with it.

In the beginning it takes a lot to shift your attention from one thing to the other and back again but trust this process because it really does feel like it’s going to be fruitful.

It’s a lot to work and deal with and we are all learning to get to grips with this new dimension. I say that because it really is a new dimension that we are entering.

One of the biggest themes, and this is one that I feel is going to be coming up quite a lot, is identity. How we currently define ourselves, how we want to define ourselves and how the past has defined us. We are in a position of choice which can feel pretty overwhelming. That combined with this constant flipping motion between dimensions and at the same time getting to grips with reality can make you feel a bit nauseous. I take you back to the rollercoaster analogy that we started with.

As we work towards this “who we are” and grapple with the constant moving parts, we feel uncertainty looming. It’s important to get to grips with this because it is a given. It’s not as easy as it sounds so if you need help with this, give me a shout.

Many of us have faced a total breakdown of identity. Many of us are holding on for dear life because we don’t know what’s replacing it. I think 2018 was teaching us about letting go and we go deeper in to this lesson now. For many of us, the experiences of 2018 are proving to be a training ground for this new dimension that we are entering.

We find ourselves remembering and forgetting those lessons in order to go deeper in to them. We also find ourselves fighting to keep what we hold dearly and lose what doesn’t serve us. We continue to do the inner work but there’s a sense of outcome being quite a distance away, almost as if we’re not meant to see what it is yet because seeing it will just be a spoiler.

Trust, faith and hope. Of these three, the dominant feeling is one of being hopeful which is a far cry from previous months when we were in the thick of it.

A sparkly new you starts to emerge. One that you may not even recognise as you step off that rollercoaster in your own time and get your breath back. Now is the time to rethink and revisualise. The hardest thing will be accepting a total 360 in direction for some of us and for others, a need to disrupt the flow in order to influence this change.

One thing I can say is that it is a very exciting time. The energies are thick and dense so even though there is excitement, there is also much work to be done. It feels like being on the red eye, drifting in and out of sleep and waking up to find a blanket of snow and silence all around at your target destination.

Don’t feel lost just keep on going. It will all make sense soon.

Until next time…

Ascension Energy Update 28th February, 2019

This is your ascension energy update for the week. It’s the last day of February and I don’t know about you but time seems to have been going really slowly. Christmas feels like it was years ago and the year seems to be going at a really slow pace.

One thing that is emerging is the level of clearing for all of us is reaching a depth we never even knew we had in us. There is a lot going on around the Heart Chakra and we seem to be revisiting the themes around “letting go” of things that don’t serve us. Have a look at this previous post around the Heart Chakra that might help. Click here to access.

The intensity of February’s energies is being felt by all. If you’ve been tuned in to what’s happening with the Schumann Resonance, you’ll know that the Earth’s frequency has been extremely high since mid February. Take a look by clicking this link.

Restlessness, sleeplessness, fatigue and upheaval all coming up as a result of the fluctuations in energy. It seems to be settling but worth just keeping an eye on. I think of it like this. This is the electromagnetic frequency of the Earth so it works with energy. If you think about your emotions as energy, then what’s happening is that this increase in electromagnetic energy is pulling the dense energy up to the surface to be cleared. This is why we feel out of sorts during these periods of high energy. It’s not the only reason, but it does have an impact.

What does all this mean? Well we’re all connected to each other and we’re all connected to this frequency. Whether you’re “awake” or not, you’ll feel it in some way, shape or form. For those that are new to the path, these feeling of being unsettled usually send them in search of an answer and it leads them to self-discovery and spirituality. For those that are already on this path, it unearths deeper layers. As more people wake up on the planet, the frequency or vibration rises. As more people work to raise their own vibration (through meditation, prayer, law of attraction etc) the higher the collective vibration.

There is no doubt that something is happening. It feels like the Earth is rumbling and calling in what it needs. We can see the world is changing. Politically, economically, socially, environmentally it feels like changes are afoot.

While this happens on a collective level, you’ll notice changes within you on an individual level. In your own life, this sort of energy brings with it changes. You know once you start seeing things a different way, you can’t go back to how it was. That’s the feeling that’s working it’s way through. It feels like change has been on the horizon for a long time but now feels like the right time to make that shift for good.

Another theme in the healing room and on a personal level has been this idea of a wake up call. This almost make or break moment that people are experiencing. It’s now or never. Although sometimes that can feel like a pushy energy, it feels like we are consciously making decisions that will benefit ourselves.

Everything we do on an individual level has an impact on the collective energy so never underestimate how important your part is. I was in London over the weekend talking to a friend as we walked through the city. I looked up and saw buildings either side and then blue sky. When you look up at the sky, you’re not even a dot in comparison. Then you think about our planet, and that’s not a dot in comparison to the Universe. She helped me to see it the other way round and used the example of an ant in your garden. It’s energy is needed and it has it’s purpose. Without that ant, it’s whole ecosystem would be completely different. When you think about it like that, you put things in to perspective and recognise that without that dot, the whole universe would look completely different. You can disappear in to insignificance and merge in to the world around you, but it’s you that makes it what it is. Without you, it would be completely different. The people around you would be completely different.

What we do for ourselves is key. I think sometimes as Lightworkers we feel that we are carrying a collective burden but it’s not necessary. You are connected and your vibration impacts the collective vibration. This is why with so many people waking up and exploring spirituality, we feel collectively a feeling of hope, rebirth and renewal.

It takes time for these things to integrate and work themselves through our mental, emotional, physical and spiritual parts. This is why we keep working on ourselves. The more we strengthen ourselves spiritually, the more we strengthen the collective energy body of the planet. That meditation you do in the morning, that yoga session, that prayer, that Reiki healing, that journalling, that grounding – all those things you are doing for yourself are having a knock on ripple effect in strengthening the core energy body of this planet and Mother Earth is saying thank you because it’s much needed.

We are all in this together. Let’s not forget that. We have our own journey and sharing that is what provides hope for others. Lifting ourselves inspires others to lift themselves.

YOU matter and your vibration matters. Anything you can do to help yourself is inadvertently helping to raise the vibration of this planet. None of us are insignificant. We all have something to give and we are powerful as individuals and even more powerful as a collective.

Do for yourself. Do for others. I think that’s the message this week. If you need help with any of the themes covered in this update, please get in touch.

Until next time, keep vibing high!

Energy Updates

Ascension Energy Update 18th February, 2019

This is your ascension energy update for this week and oh my does it feel like the ground is moving from under our feet! Before I begin this update, I just want to say that my updates are NOT astrological. They’re purely based on tuning in to the frequencies. I include what I know may be happening with the moon and planets if it’s relevant. Mostly, I’m sharing what I’m experiencing as well as collective themes that emerge from the healing room that are tied in to these themes.

I’ve not done an update for a while as I’ve been processing this very heavy energy that’s around. Those of you who follow my Facebook posts know that I’ve been keeping an eye on the Schumann Resonance. Check out this link: https://www.disclosurenews.it/en/schumann-resonance-today-update/

The spikes have been noticeable as the frequency rises and I’ve been feeling it all quite physically. It’s worth checking out if you’re feeling a bit odd and wondering what it is that’s setting you off!

Energy wise, as always, there’s a lot going on. Although the last few weeks have felt quite still and stagnant. There’s been a feeling of “nothing seems to be happening.” Hold on tight because the energy is taking us higher and higher.

There’s a full moon Tuesday 19th and the energy is building around that. It doesn’t feel as intense as previous moons. With full moon energy, usually the shit that needs to clear comes up and hits you square in the face. This moon has a gentler energy. It’s calmer and it feels like a real magnetic pull towards something bigger.

One of themes we’ve been exploring in the healing room has been growth. Growth happens on a number of levels. Emotional and spiritual growth is what I support people with. It’s been noticeable just how much people are starting to become aware of energy and it’s impact on daily life. I’ve been doing this kind of work for the last 5 years and I’m really seeing the landscape changing in terms of awareness and expansion on a spiritual level. Everyone knows about energy – regardless of whether they believe in it or not. It’s becoming a mainstream thing to talk about energy and that can only be a good thing.

This weeks energy is about expansion and I feel that really strongly. The thing to remember about expansion is that when it’s happening, the first thing we do is resist. This makes us contract (not expand) and there’s a certain amount of pressure that falls on us in order for us to get to a point where we burst forth from it. I’ve certainly been feeling this way over the last week or so. It’s tough to remember when you’re going through it that the time you feel pressure is the bit that’s going to make you grow and expand.

Times like these are perfect to show you what you’re made of!

Another theme in the healing room has been around asking for what you need. Whether that’s setting boundaries, asking for help or just being able to take time out. We seem to be learning some really big lessons around that. This week’s energy is asking us to choose wisely and to include ourselves in our choices.

We are inextricably linked to the past but we forget that we are also linked equally as strongly to our future. The present is where these timelines meet and that is something to be really conscious and aware of as we are manifesting our future. We can do this consciously or unconsciously but simply to be aware of it seems to be a big message from the universe.

I don’t know where you’re at but I seem to be doing a lot of watching. I’m observing myself. I’m observing others. I’m also finding that a lot of the questions I’m asking seem to be answered through this observation. I love this way of working because I’ll reach out to the Universe and say “show me.” This is even more awesome if you remember that you’ve asked because being human, we often forget and then when the shits hitting the fan, we wonder what hell we’ve unleashed! I’ve started getting in to more of a conscious habit with the words, “show me regardless of whether I like the truth or not” and then I let go. This is the critical bit because you really do have to accept what comes rather than influence the outcome!

The pull from the moon is a big one and there’s something very reassuring about this moon’s energy. I’m feeling a different vibration with this one. It’s almost like the energy of “home” wants to come in and sit with us. I like this feeling. For those of you who are on this path, you’ll know I’ve talked about this feeling before. This feeling of wanting to go home. I feel the energies of this place are with us. I can’t sense whether it is galactic star energy or whether the energy of the ancestors is coming through more strongly with this moon. It’s a nice feeling this glow though because either way, the message I’m getting is “You are not alone. There are many more out there like you.”

For me, this moon is significant as I turn 40 in a few days. They say life begins at 40 so perhaps I’m also feeling the energy of my own rebirth from this star flooded universe. Who knows?

If you need help with any of the themes in this post, please do get in touch.

Until next time….Love and Light,

Hafsa

Energy Updates

Ascension Energy Update 4th February, 2019

This is your ascension energy update for the week. Hasn’t it been an interesting few weeks? We’re working with a couple of major themes and so I thought it was good timing to write an update today.

Revisiting the Past

The first major theme I want to cover is this idea of revisiting the past, or rather as it has been over the last few weeks is the past coming to visit you. For many of us, some ugly things have raised their heads from as far back as 2017. However, what we’re finding is that rather than it toppling us in the same way that it did before, it all seems to be showing us how much we have grown. This is all positive in my view. What you’ll notice when you’ve been working on yourself is that your responses begin to change. There is more of a sense of “I’ve got this” or “The Universe has got my back.”

It goes deeper than just growth though. This is all part of cultivating faith and trust in what’s meant to be, which leads me nicely on the the next theme.

Letting go

One theme that we will always be working with is this idea of letting go. Certainly in the healing room and for me on a personal level, it has been about exploring the mindset that keeps us locked in. Once we realise that it’s our thinking that keeps us in the same place, we can consciously move from that place to the next level.

One of things that helps is to become aware of the stories that we tell ourselves. For me, it’s going over old journals and things that I’ve written and that really helps me to see the story that I am telling myself. It isn’t just the story on it’s own though. It’s about what that story says about you and asking yourself if that’s who you want to be. This is challenging because if the answer is no, it means you’re going to have to do the work to change it!

This is when we start to let go of the ideas that we’ve been locked in to. Old you has been trying to keep pushing itself back in, but I find that baby steps are the best way to easing your way to carving a new place for yourself.

Advice going forward

The thing that works best for me when I’m transitioning in to a new version of myself is to take one day at a time. Watch for signs of old you because they’ll creep back in. The way that self-sabotage works is through the thought process and it’s challenging to keep on with things. This is something that I’m working with and the way through it is to ask yourself “What happens if I keep going with this?”

There will always be a pang of fear, but keep going nonetheless because fear can’t kill you. It can harm you and cause you to do things to your detriment, but even those things you learn from.

You’ve just got to keep on keeping on. Healing is there to help you so if you find you’ve hit a stumbling block and can’t move past a certain phase in your journey, please get in touch. I love helping people progress so hit me up!

Energy Updates

Ascension Energy Update 30th November 2018

This is your ascension energy update for the week. It’s been a little messy since the full moon, hasn’t it?!

Many of us are finding that the lessons are coming in thick and fast and with Mercury has been in retrograde since November 16th. It goes direct around the time of the new moon on the 7th December and there’s refreshing changes on the way. Well that’s the least we can hope for.

Expect between now and then to be messy. There is much coming up to heal and one of the things that will really hit you is that one same lesson that you’ve still not learnt. I know I’m feeling it in many areas of my life at the moment and it really is time to gather your wits about you!

The best way to handle it is to take that time out for yourself. Reflect. I mean really reflect and ask yourself what are the things that you keep experiencing time and time again. There’s your big clue. Whether it’s feeling hard done by or whether it’s a feeling of stop/start – just take time to sit with it.

The next step is to ask yourself, “What am I doing that’s keeping it the same?” Therein lie a lot of the answers.

Remember there are some things that are programmed in as subconscious patterns and so they’re not that easy to shift on your own. If you want to give me a call, I’d be happy to help you with this.

Think about what you want to do differently. I can’t remember who it was that said that it’s an act of madness to do the same thing again and again and expect a different result. It might have been Einstein but he was right.

It is really heavy right now but it’s all about getting us to take a real good look at where we have come from and how we want to change. Mars, the planet of action, is also on the move so this will make it easier.

I would say take some time to reflect. Sometimes we can want change so badly but the actions that we are taking really aren’t in alignment with what we want to achieve. It’s time to work it all out so that when you do take action, it’s with intention and is fruitful for you.

I know my own personal way of doing things is haphazard and so sitting down and working things out is something I’m not used to doing. I kind of follow my heart on a whim and a prayer and structure and discipline are completely alien concepts to me. This wave of ascension energy has really forced me to slow down, take stock and plan.

My challenge now is trying to stick to the plan!

One thing I do know is that this year has been start/stop energy for many of us. It has brought up so much for us to heal and I know that many of you are going through a messy time right now.

I’ve been doing my own Emotion Code sessions to help me shift out of these old patterns because I know it isn’t me that doesn’t want to take action – it’s my subconscious hindering me. As a result, I’m noticing the changes in myself on a massive scale. I think those of you who have been following my social media have also noticed how much I’m changing.

It’s important that we tune in and believe that we are not hopeless in our endeavours. Healing is here to help you. If you’d like to have a chat, please get in touch. A consultation call is completely free.

Healing, Inspiration

To attract what you truly deserve, you have to feel that you deserve it

To attract what you truly deserve, you have to feel that you deserve it. Lately, I’ve been working to try and reach more people and that’s because I know I can really make a difference. I know there’s more to do and I’ve been trying to get to the bottom of this so I thought I’d share my thinking on this with you.

So I know that I have a real impact on people’s lives. I know that healing has helped make massive leaps for people’s careers. I’ve helped people come back from absolute rock bottom. I know that there’s some clients who literally trust me with their lives. I know that I’ve helped people avoid being on prescription drugs and even helped some people to come off them. I know I’ve helped people become confident and assertive. I know I’ve helped people overcome their fears of intimacy. I know I’ve helped people make sense of their spiritual journey and taught them how to work on themselves. I’ve seen people grow and blossom in front of my eyes. I’ve helped people to take charge of their own destiny and given them the perspective that’s helped them to believe that everything is possible.

The list is endless and you’d think that this would be enough evidence for me to believe in myself, right? Well, I’m going to be really honest here and say that I’ve only just started to understand the difference I make to people’s lives and I’m still battling with this. Empaths start on a much lower self-worth level to others in my opinion and it takes a lot to climb to that place where you truly believe in your gifts.

I had a lovely client come in the other day and something he said will stick with me forever. He said, “You can say that your work is rewarding and real satisfaction and that you make a real difference. People will remember you for what you did for them.” I tried to stay cool, but inside my heart dropped a little because I’d not taken that perspective. I usually just bumble along, shrug off the praise and get on with the job. I hadn’t really been listening or taking on board the nice things that people have said because perhaps I didn’t feel that I truly deserved it. I always focus on what else there is left to do and this made me stop and take stock and really appreciate what I have.

I know that when people tell me how much I’ve helped them with the sessions we’ve had together, I still have a hard time accepting the praise. It’s like I still can’t quite believe that I’m doing this.

It takes an awful lot to step up and accept all of who you are. I’m finding this as I battle my way through it. I talk a lot about working with the shadow aspects, but this is like another form of shadow that we also need to work with. Being able to see and accept what you’re putting in to world and the positives it brings is a beautiful thing. What happens is that we think of this as Ego and retreat in to being humble. I know this is what I’ve been doing and actually as a result, I’m not getting what I truly deserve because I don’t truly believe I deserve it.

This is one of the things that I’m trying to set about changing in myself because it’s part of my self-sabotage pattern and I know I’m fed up of living that pattern. In my bones, I feel that it’s time to step up and really be visible about the work that I do. I’m building my confidence. I’m getting better at accepting praise and I’m really listening and allowing the evidence to show me that this journey is well worth the graft. Look at what I can do – it’s magical but in the daily grind, the magic gets lost and forgotten. I want to be the person that still believes in the magic!

It can be overwhelming, but I’m learning that actually praise and kind words are how people are showing love and appreciation. I have to keep my heart open to this love. It doesn’t mean it’s going to my head and it doesn’t make me any less humble. It’s quite a difficult and new concept to me to be able to celebrate the good things that I have put in to the world and be proud of what I have achieved. It’s actually quite scary!

I’m conscious not to take anything for granted because I know where I came from. At the same time, I understand that if I am overwhelmed by it, I’m not in complete acceptance of it. It’s an interesting dilemma because the Ego is shouting “Be humble!” and at the same time you’re at the point where you can’t deny the evidence that’s put before you.

The trick is to define your own sense of identity because there is strength in having that sense of self. The Ego is the false identity and when it screams “Be humble!” at you, it is one of the ways in which it is holding you back and keeping you in the limitations that you’ve been taught.

I never really recognised this fully before now and working with it has been really challenging. I can say in my own mind I believe I make a difference and I’m starting to accept the evidence as real. Remember how deep set the ego ideas and beliefs are.

Defining your own sense of self takes time. I’ve been on this journey a while and I’m still finding false selves and as each mask falls away, it enables me to become more authentic, more real and more confident in my own definition of who I am.

I don’t want to be what I’m taught I have to be in this world. I don’t want to have limitations and restrictions placed on me.

I want to be able to share and celebrate the fullness of who I am. I want to believe that I can attract what I deserve. I want to believe that I truly deserve it.

If any of this resonates and you’re on the path trying to find ways to become who you came here to be, please get in touch with me. I love working with opening hearts and minds to all the possibilities!

 

99 Pathways of the Heart

Pathway 16 – Flexible Strength

“When you are guided to this pathway, take the opportunity to feel a flexible strength that can adapt to any situation and yet remain rooted in, and moving toward, the purpose of your life.”

This pathway came at just the right time for me to integrate many of the lessons that I am learning on this journey. I’ve talked before about distraction and how sometimes being an empath can mean that you get absorbed and pulled in to everyone else’s stuff. We can feel resentful because our full focus is not on our own mission.

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been consciously looking at how I get pulled away and distracted and I’ve made a lot of changes. The first thing that I want to say is thank you to all the true friends that have understood that I’ve needed me and my work to come first. It’s appreciated more than you know.

One of aspects of this pathway is developing strength from the way that we look at the past. For those of you that know me, you’ll know I do a lot of work with the shadow aspect. The shadow is all about looking at all the things that you’re not so comfortable with and I feel that it’s a way of breaking down the ego.

The pathway talks about forgetting the past and just keeping going. I find this really interesting and I don’t take that literally. I think there is much to be gained by understanding that you can’t just put your past in a box and pretend that it doesn’t exist. Part of shadow work is to revisit some of the more uncomfortable parts and to work through them and with them in a way that allows us to learn more about who we are. This process helps us to accept parts of ourselves that we may have disowned because of shame or anger at the way we behaved. Learning love and compassion for yourself means that you have to go in and be able to accept all of this to be whole.

We all have parts of ourselves that we don’t care to name and shame because it is deeply troubling. These parts usually are distinguished as the judgements we make about others. It’s hard to accept that that’s ourselves being reflected back at us. I know when I first started working with my shadow aspects, it sent me in to deep despair and it was so easy to let those things bring me down. That was because I didn’t fully own them and I hadn’t healed from them and so they still had a lot of power of me as a person.

It is easy when we face adversity to act out old shadows. Sometimes it is that inner child surfacing and being able to face yourself takes courage. It means being able to feel pain, shame, anger, fear and know that it has a place within you along with everything else. The spiritual journey isn’t all love and light and rainbows and unicorns! There are times when it is deeply uncomfortable getting to the truth. And the truth isn’t always fashionable enough to wear so we wear a mask instead. All of this starts to become apparent as you work with the shadow. It takes courage and being human, sometimes my courage fails but I think even approaching your shadow is a good start.

I do this because I want to be authentically myself. Sometimes authenticity can get lost in politeness and people pleasing. You’ll notice how that feels in yourself and I know that I don’t like it. I don’t like letting people down but when it’s a choice between that and letting myself down, I’ve learnt that it’s not always easy to choose me. It’s something that will take time to master and there’s a lot to work through.

There is darkness within all of us but part of our inner work is to face it and begin the alchemical process of transmuting it and learning to shine light on it so that it becomes something more than just a painful memory. From this process, we develop the flexible strength that this pathway is teaching us about. A person is more than the sum of their parts. When we identify all the parts, we become that something more. This is what I’m talking about. It isn’t the easiest thing to name those parts and become that something more.

When you know yourself, you are truly resilient in the face of adversity. When you are reluctant to face all aspects of yourself, you’re likely to be triggered. I think it always goes, “Trigger first, lesson later!” We need time to ponder and reflect and life is amazing in the way that it presents the lessons to us on a plate. Each trigger is an opportunity to learn and grow. Sometimes it starts with a bitch and a vent, but as you work through it, you realise that you need to own that judgement that you’ve made because it’s showing you who you are. When you’re at peace with it, you’ll experience it without being triggered. This is true strength.

There’s “who we like to think we are” versus “who we actually are” and the ego likes to hold on to it’s ideas about our identity and how we define ourselves. We have deeply set ideas, some so deep set that we’ve yet to see them.

There’s always more to do in breaking down the ego and it can sometimes feel like you’re treading water and that you’ll never be free of it. Even that is an acceptance in itself. You are in the actual process when you acknowledge it and try to make peace with it. It always feels better to me to acknowledge that I am on my way to something. It’s the process that’s more important than the outcome. When we focus on the outcome, we realise that it’s too big. When we focus on the process, we see that we’re taking steps towards something. A step in the direction you’re choosing feels better than perfection.

It’s always interesting to say the least working with the shadow aspect. We start to discover just how many lies we have told ourselves – more than we care to admit. It’s a level of honesty that you can’t really be ready for when it hits you. It makes sense to do it though because you arrive at a truer version of yourself than the one you are now. Constantly moving and evolving to get to the truth of who you are is meaningful work and it grows you.

And once you start on the quest for truth, you can’t stop!

Energy Updates

Ascension Energy Update 20th November, 2018

Well there’s definitely been a massive shift in the ascension energy since Venus went direct on the 16th November. The thing that I’ve noticed is that all those lessons that we’ve learnt when it comes to relationships are at the forefront of our minds. There is a steely determination in the air and the vibe is centred about not going back to our old ways.

With this energy shift, there have been physical symptoms. For me, the amount of sleep I am needing has increased! The rest is an important part of any energy shift because our soul energy moves a lot faster than our physical mind and body does. We need to physically catch up and as we process, it can make our minds and bodies feel tired.

One thing that I feel strongly is to understand that everyone’s pace is different. I do however get the sense that once we have caught up (however long this takes) the energy will speed up and you’ll find yourself really getting to grips with what needs doing and following through on things that have been sitting for a while.

With this energy, there’s definitely a sense of sifting through and prioritising. I know that this is the energy because it isn’t a process that comes naturally to me. I feel a deep need to really connect in solitude and actually that’s guiding me to what the priorities are at any given time.

The energy is magical at the moment. So many signs and synchronicities. It feels like it has to be this way to get us to believe in the magic again! The energies have been so heavy over the past few months that this is much needed relief for us all.

It’s uplifting even if it making us feel sleepy! I’ve found so much more joy and laughter since the shift happened and this lightness brings with it a renewed hope and optimism.

It really is a magical time and a brilliant time to get things in motion. I know that Mercury is retrograde but I feel that it’s time to plan and put together the vision for the future. It feels like we have moved on from so much after Venus shifted and it has given much needed clarity.

Re-evaluating relationships was the focus of Venus retrograde and it’s beautiful how the lessons learnt are resulting in the way that we approach anything new. There is something cautious and protective in the energy, but at the same time it isn’t coming from a place of fear. It’s coming from heightened intuition and the resistance to learning lessons seems to be subsiding.

There is an openness to this energy and a willingness to welcome whatever emotions are coming to visit. It’s an expansive space and its fast paced. There is a lot of movement and almost like a feeling of whizzing through the air at times.

With Mercury Retrograde, it’s important to pay attention to the details for us to properly harness the energy. If you’re anything like me, you’ll get carried and not take account for the small print! I have to keep reminding myself. Checking in is important and remember not to go too fast with this because there is the potential for burnout.

It is reassuring to know that all is coming to fruition but the message that’s coming through really strongly is that we need to take everything at our own pace. You can’t swallow the entire ocean. You can only take a sip at a time. This energy is setting the tone for what’s to come and so on a practical level, now is the time to think about what you’d like to introduce in to your routine. Whether it’s new ways of thinking, new habits, structure, discipline. This will all be made easier because of the energy that we are in.

The Universe is supporting us to get to where we need to go. Most of the time, it can feel like the Universe is throwing us a curve ball and teaching us the lessons but this energy is lovely because it feels supportive, reassuring and energising in a way that I’ve not experienced to this extent before.

Take advantage of it! Also know that what’s meant for you is on it’s way and regardless of whether you consciously or subconsciously try to sabotage it, it’s all coming for you anyway. You’ll learn what you need to learn through the process but that which you desire is the thing to keep in mind.

Learn to become obsessed with visualising what you’d like this energy to bring you and watch as the Universe meets you and supports you to achieve and realise it. It’s a beautiful feeling to be able to believe in the magic again and I’m really loving what’s happening right now.

Remember when you feel the magic, you resonate that vibration and that vibration has an impact on others. The more you can harness that feeling, the more you are contributing to raising the vibration on this planet. We are all doing that. Even something as simple as being in a good mood or sending out good vibes makes a difference.

I hope you’re making the most of it! I’ve cracked on with more videos as a result of this little boost so if you’d like to take a look CLICK HERE! Get in touch if you’d like to share how you’re feeling about the future!

Until next time,
