Self-love leads you to your greatest joy

Sometimes you find yourself on the receiving end of judgement, invalidation or disapproval from others. Maybe it was something you said or did that triggered their insecurities, but it is certainly not something you are responsible for. It is not yours to fix or heal.

These situations are truly blessings in disguise since as a result of this experience you will grow and learn a whole lot more about yourself than you may previously have been aware of. You may notice that the degree to which you react to someone else’s projections directed at you is the degree to which you actually believe what they are saying. Or in others words, it is the degree to which you have lost your space and are matching their insecurities. If you are able to remain neutral here, then congratulations: it means you have cleared your matching pictures. On the other hand, if it seems like you’ve hit a wall, it is because your self-image is in some way hooked into how others see you.

As a result you might even get angry at them, since your expectations about how others should behave and act around you have been disappointed. You lost your space and your amusement. Not an issue in and of itself, but the goal is to return to neutrality and have your space back.

The truth is you cannot control how others see you, receive you or react to you. That is not your space or place to have a say in. Everyone makes their decisions and creates their own karma. It is between them and Source.

The healing step here is to move everybody else’s energy out of your self-image space and define it for yourself with the vibration of self-love instead. Then, no matter how many people are on your side or supportive of you, you can do your own thing, speak your truth, be true to yourself and not give a damn about what others think of you. What others think of you is none of your business anyway.

Self-love, seeing the value and worth in yourself regardless of whether others can see it or not is the mark of a true leader. This kind of leadership may not be about leading the masses, conquering lands or roaring like a lion. Rather, it is about the ability to quietly work on your own even when facing opposition. With self-love you are able to do the right thing even when all odds are stacked against you, because you have your space and freedom to be authentic and are not phased by temporary dramas.

The healing balm of self-love allows you to accept and embrace everything about yourself, not just the good and easy parts. There are parts of your beingness that have been hidden away in the unconscious for a long time. Old fear-based belief systems may have caused you to repress these parts about yourself as dark, evil or wicked. It is only with the nurturing light of self-love that those parts can come out to the surface and finally be seen, healed and owned by you. And as you own more of yourself, including the uncomfortable and the dark parts, you will be able to more easily let go of all those external power struggles, battles and disagreements with others where you felt you had to defend yourself. With your energy freed up from fighting with others, more of it will be available to you and free to use for creating something wonderful in the moment. You step out of competition with Source.

The greatest truth is that truly nothing about what others say or do is ever personal to you, especially when it seems like it is! Rather, everyone are having their own conversations with Source and more often than not, those conversations can happen through you. Validate that you are part of a greater whole that works and creates blessings through you. Your whole beingness in itself is a blessing.

Eco-communities are the bright green future of mankind

It’s the last day of 2017 and I spent most of this afternoon roaming around the forest nearby our house in Risti, located in the Western Estonia. My body felt very nurtured as I circulated lots of Earth energy and communicated with the energy of the land.

I am deeply inspired and in awe of the beautiful nature around here. Truly, Estonian land and people are extremely blessed with some of the most ancient and untouched forests. As I walked along a trail I came across many amazing photo opportunities and became more and more uplifted by the smells, sights and sensations.

Then I walked past an area where a chunk of the forest had been cut down and only tree stumps had remained. This had been a relatively small part of the forest and the trees from there are probably being used as firewood or building material. All well and good, but somehow I was overcome by very deep sadness and tears began to fall. I could just see the beautiful and innocent ecosystem, that this part of the forest had been, completely destroyed by humans. Perhaps the owners of this land are wise enough to plant two trees for every single tree that they choose to cut down, but seeing this destruction made me think of the same happening all across the globe. For example, right now beautiful Indonesian rainforests are being cut down by greedy corporations just to plant palm trees for oil production. Very, very sad indeed considering that ecosystems are being destroyed that had been vital to various species of animal, bird, insect and plant. We have yet to see the true effect of man’s greed on the planet’s climate.

There is already a growing awareness of climate change and this has been around for many decades. People are becoming increasingly aware of how their small everyday actions affect the nature around them and the planet as a whole. One of the marks of an awakened species is awareness of one another and the environment and we as a collective are finally beginning to wake up. One of the key lessons for us a collective is noticing that there is a direct correlation between the way we treat one another on the small everyday scale and how we treat the planet below our feet.

We humans are an interesting species. On the one hand, we are a wonderful creation of Source, blessed with much curiosity and intelligence and yet on the other hand plagued by a sense of entitlement and completely deluded by the belief that we somehow ‘own’ this planet. Few awakened beings have realised that one can truly only own one’s own energy and space. This means that one only truly ever has control over one’s own thoughts, words, actions and choices. We do not own this planet, rather we are visitors here. Through a beautiful, mysterious and perfect series of choices and decisions made as a collective consciousness, we ended up here on this planet. Being human and being alive is a wonderful experience filled with both beauty as well as challenges, however, we are not here to stay for an eternity. We do not have that luxury in a Universe that is constantly changing. Just as people have their cycles of lives, so does the Earth. We are currently part of an extremely beautiful time in the Earth’s evolution and as a species we hold the responsibility to ensure that the Earth remains in that beautiful condition that it still is in.

Through the senseless and unkind actions of many selfish and greedy humans we are seeing what damage has already been done to Earth. We must change our ways before it’s too late. Already there has been a rise of eco-warriors and people coming together to live in communities that are based around completely natural and Earth-based values. These people are renouncing the ways of the old consumerist society and adopt habits and behaviours that are essentially friendly towards the Earth. There are truly many, many steps we can each take immediately to support this eco-movement, such as: recycling, saving water, saving electricity, switching to eco-friendly household products and appliances, shopping locally and buying from your local farmer, avoiding GMO products and growing your own organic fruit and veggies, and much more. Truly, the list is endless, I could go on and on.

The time frame that we are currently into in the Earth’s and humanity’s history is the paradigm shift from a Young soul world to a Mature soul world. That is, we are collectively switching from a competition-based world-view to a community-based world-view. This isn’t necessarily an easy process and lots of growth pain is involved, especially for those that have little consciousness of what is happening. It’s similar to a child becoming a teenager and learning about his responsibilities in the world at large. Isolating oneself, playing the lone wolf and the ‘I win, you lose’ attitude no longer works; now it’s all about joining others so that life becomes a win-win for all.

The eco-communities represent all of what is truly the most optimal for the future of mankind. In these communities no one gets left by the wayside, not a person, animal or plant. Everyone is given a purpose to fulfil, everyone has a place and deserves compassionate love. As we take good care of one another and the Earth, we will have graduated to a whole new way of being.

Create miracles easily with energywork

In our today’s world of relentless external stimuli such as social media, TV, news, meetings, responsibilities and global challenges our attention is constantly being pulled outside of ourselves. By default, there is very little space to have your attention to yourself.

In addition, someone who does not seem to be engaging with the worldly dramas may be perceived as isolated or selfish. The lie we have been entertaining here is that when we want to create change in the world, we have to go ‘out there’ to do it. This is, of course, a faulty approach. We can’t truly help others without doing our own inner work first.

There are many different ways to work on yourself from within and one of them is energywork. Some of the tools in your energywork toolbox are: attention, intention and visualisation. Energywork has a holistic approach to life. Namely, when I work on me, then the world around me will reorder to the changes I have made in me. I will attract to myself that which I am.

When I clear my own pictures, patterns, old belief systems, then the outside world immediately begins to match to that. Events, situations, relationships and everything will reorder to reflect where I’ve set the energy for myself and my mock-ups.

Practising daily energywork meditation increases your overall levels of awareness.

The foundation of energywork is the concept of ownership – what I see around me reflects something in me. In fact, the whole Universe exists within me, I’m not just a part of it – I am an expression of the Universe. It is all intricately connected. Seeing and integrating these truths into your daily life, you can begin to create change in the world by simply changing something in yourself, not waiting for the world to change around you.

In the old paradigm it made a whole lot of sense to go out there and deal with the issue externally. However, this approach did not integrate the truth that ‘out there’ is also ‘in here’. It was incomplete, lacking wholeness and completely disregarded the internal processes that created the situation to begin with. In the new paradigm, you don’t have to go out there and ‘save the world’ or ‘save the planet’. The world and the planet don’t need saving. They are doing just fine – it is you who needs saving.

The underlying truth is that we attract to ourselves and are drawn to people and situations that we have spiritual agreements with or where we have unfinished karma. These situations will keep on repeating themselves like a broken record until you start to pay attention, notice the pattern and clear it using your energywork tools. Indeed, it is that easy to let go of old patterns.

If you are spending a lot of time and energy trying to change and fix others, only ever noticing the faults and shortcomings of others, then that is energy completely wasted. So don’t be surprised if you often feel completely exhausted and burned out after dealing with people. The only place where you really have a say and control is in your own space. The only one you can really change and work on is you. You can of course inspire others to change, but you cannot do their inner work for them.

Psychic meditation helps you to connect with your own truth

At times things can get a little heated and you may feel pressure from others to conform, fit into a mould, do as you’re told … How do you manage that kind of energy? Have you tried meditating yet?

When you sit down to meditate, you are entering a stress free zone that is entirely your own. You are your own boss in this space and no one gets to dictate anything to you here. Using visualisation tools you can also safely release any weighty or stressful energy that you may have picked up from others.

The time spent sitting in communication with your body, your Essence, your own answers and Source is time spent very wisely indeed. Namely, the more often you do this, the easier it becomes to get into a centered and meditative state at all times, including during times of duress. Meditation is indeed an invaluable tool to help you to quickly move through any unpleasant situations with all of your integrity intact.

The great thing about receiving intuitive guidance in your meditation space is that it comes from your own truth and does not have to be proved, explained or defended to anyone. You have full permission to clear any energy that says otherwise! Imagine living your life free from competition and from having to make sense to anyone – how fun and liberating!

Very often the Universe gives us lessons that require us to let go of having to ‘know’ where we’re heading, to let go of struggling and to simply trust. In those times the communication you may be receiving from Source may not make a whole lot of sense to your analytical mind. Indeed, if you were to keep on insisting that the communication fit into a specific mould, an expectation, then the result is that you will miss the true underlying message. It might not be what you expected, but is quite likely something even better! Trust in the infinite compassion of Source to know the most healing and loving solutions for everyone involved.

What may help you to quickly get into a space of clear communication with the God-of-Your-Heart and Source are the psychic tools. I’m not talking about external tools here such as oracle cards, a pendulum or a magic wand, but rather visualisation tools such as grounding, running energy and the rose image. These tools work entirely on visualisation and intention and can help you to access your own answers much more easily and effortlessly than otherwise. There are of course many other different and entirely valid ways to receive information, such as through feelings, sensations, just knowing, as a hunch or an instinct, but the truth is that visual images are the most accurate and the least biased.

Using your tools you will be easily able to release expectations and judgements from your space and receive clear communication from spirit for what it actually is.

Soul age perspective

When people put pressure, expectations and demands on you based on their own limited perspective, you may end up feeling invalidated or unseen. The remedy here is to lovingly express your truths in order to take back your freedom.

It’s very easy for these situations to crop up around family where you may be expected to fulfill roles that you do not like or feel comfortable in. You may even still be carrying around old expectations from your parents even if you are no longer in contact with them – the pictures are still there. There’s no need to become defensive or to take anyone personally, because everyone are being and doing their best with where they currently are at in their own spiritual evolution and paths.

Spiritually speaking all of us have a different history of incarnations and different experience of living in physical bodies. The different ways of doing and seeing things are based on different soul age perspective.

Young souls learn through doing, competition, action, being better than others. They seek to dominate rather than co-operate. The third chakra is the most dominant chakra for them and the main lessons they are learning are around willpower and energy management.

Mature souls learn through deep emotions, drama, relationships, going deep within and creativity. The dominant chakra for them is the fourth chakra and the primary lesson they are learning has to do with self-love.

Old souls learn through teaching others, philosophy, spirituality, going deep, high and basically everywhere. The Old soul perspective has the capacity for unconditional love and is all-embracing at its best. the most dominant chakra for them is the fifth chakra and the primary lessons they are learning are around authentic self-expression.

The Mature soul can easily do the things the Young soul does if asked to do so, but would feel incomplete or insufficient. In the same way, the Old soul can do the things the Young souls do and the things the Mature souls do, but would feel unfulfilled and unhappy when not living up to their fullest potential.

Truth is, you have a unique role to play here on Earth and only you can truly know what it is. If you really want to make a difference around here, you need to take the time to still the noise within and around you, go within, meditate and commune with your Essence in order to find out what your true purpose is. Find out what you true soul age perspective is so you can give your highest and deepest gift to humanity.

If you are surrounded by others who are younger souls in soul age perspective, it is easy to feel invalidated and you may begin to try and match them at their level. Doing this may be easier since you will avoid condemnation and being seen as the weird one or the odd one out. However, the price you will pay is that you will feel unfulfilled and unhappy.

For example, Old souls need a lot of time to just be and do very little so they can process and explore energy on a spiritual level. While the body may be relatively inactive physically, there is a lot going on behind the scenes! So, drop any judgements you may have about yourself and others. Also, you don’t have to explain yourself to anyone either.

If you are waiting for others to come and validate you, you may end up waiting a very long time indeed. Instead, be the leader and take the time to go within and validate yourself. No one can truly know you as well as you do, so it is up to you to build a loving and trusting relationship with yourself.

A good way to start connecting with your own truth is to meditate. ‘Meditation 1’, the basic intuitive skills class, begins soon in September. Enrol in the psychic kindergarten in order to learn the tools necessary to kick out any energy from your space that is not yours, so you have more space to be your true authentic self.

Growing gracefully

It is by default that when we bump into growth, we tend to try to solve our problems from the outside. We can go into effort, trying really hard to make something work. We might even struggle for power, fight and push against what we believe to be an issue.

Time and again, we find that such an approach isn’t working, because we are trying to deal with the symptoms rather than the core of the issue. A change of perspective is needed here. Namely, something needs to change inside of us.

It does no one any good to ‘resist’ or ‘fight’ against what we do not agree with. By resisting or fighting something, we are in fact strengthening it. It is only by changing our own perspectives and changing our own energy, from within, that an outer change can happen. It is a timeless truth that when you change your energy from within, the outer world will readily match to it.

Looking within, however, requires some willingness, because we might not necessarily like what we see and that can mean having to make changes. It seems that most people prefer to avoid this. And underlying this is a resistance to change. Why change anything when everything is ‘just fine and dandy’ already, right?

The great news is that whatever you see about yourself is energy and energy can be changed simply by looking at it. You don’t have to travel to a far-away country and meet a guru in order to transform yourself. It is a well-known quantum physics fact that when you start to look at particles very closely, they start to reorder themselves. It’s known as the observer effect. Similarly, we have psychic tools and can clear our energy fields. Looking within, however uncomfortable at times, is actually the only way to move forward consciously. Besides, the more you ‘look’, the easier it gets since your looking muscle grows stronger.

Whatever you see in your space, you can validate it and then release it if you don’t like it. It’s that simple. Meditating and using your psychic tools makes life effortless.

The true meaning of being on a ‘spiritual path’ means taking responsibility for the kind of energy you are running through your space and the kind of energy you are putting out there into the world around you. This is the path of consciousness: you are aware of your connection with all things around you and you choose to be responsible for your part in it. It’s kind of like putting your trash in a bin rather than littering all over the place. Some good ways to do your part would be to grow your own organic food, recycle, use eco-friendly products and save energy.

Taking responsibility for your own space means also acknowledging that what you see in those around you is simply mirroring yourself in one way or another. If you notice yourself going into judgement about what you see in another, it’s good to also take a look at what has lit up in you while you are looking at the other.

Moving through life and growing spiritually doesn’t have to be a struggle. With conscious practices such as meditation and using your psychic tools it can be beautiful, effortless and joyful. Even through the more difficult times. Add to this regularly saying hello to your spirit and your life will be nothing short of miraculous!

Wonder and the clairvoyant

There are lots of misunderstandings about what it really means to have your intuition turned on and to be clairvoyant. Some people may view intuition in a fearful way and others can view being intuitive as being somehow special.

From my own personal daily experience, it is actually a very practical tool that allows me to make some excellent choices about what to do with my life. When I trust it, I immediately know the truth about people and situations and can adjust my choices and the direction in which I want to be heading accordingly.

In its best, most optimal expression to be clairvoyant actually means to be in a constant state of wonder about myself and the Universe. It definitely does not mean that I ‘know everything’ in an intellectual way. Why would I want to fill my mind with ‘everything’ anyways? Most information floating around has absolutely no use for me. Rather there is an intuitive knowingness, which always brings with it validation and pleasant surprise. So even when something happens that I ‘knew’ would happen, there is still a joyful sense of validation and surprise to it. There is a trust that what happens is meant to happen and is not just random. That goes for even those experiences we would normally judge to be somehow negative.

Every day I say hello to my intuition by meditating and listening to the wisdom that comes from my body and my essence. Meditating allows me to clear and release any distractions or noise from my space and to have clear communication with my body, my spirit and the Supreme Being.

Sometimes people mistakenly believe that to be intuitive, empathic or sensitive is a curse, whatever ‘a curse’ is supposed to mean anyways. However, I wholeheartedly disagree. Once you embrace your sensitivity and knowingness, it becomes a wonderful tool to see yourself and others clearly with. Seeing the world around you clearly says hello to the highest potential in yourself and others.

When you can see and validate your own spirit and the spirit in another you are saying hello to their highest potential and greatest joy.

Being totally open and available to your intuition can also require being willing to embrace feeling vulnerable and raw. When you embrace this truth, new doors open for you to whole new worlds of exploration. In fact, every day becomes an adventure into new territory. You are always learning and discovering new things about yourself and others. Coupled with self-love, intuition can be a formidable tool indeed.

When you operate from your intuitive knowingness, you are like a little child playing with toys and having fun. There is a constant sense of amusement and lots of ah-ha!’s. Seriousness definitely does not belong here. To be clairvoyant really is a joyful way of being that is always filled with exploration, adventure and discovery.

The psychic child within

Many of the stern adults of today were once sensitive and psychic children. All children are intuitive and own their gifts with ease. However, as they grow older, they may not have permission to use their abilities and as a result lose touch with them.

Let’s be very clear: there is absolutely nothing woo-woo about being intuitive. The idea that it is something mystical or magical in a negative way comes from fears and limited thinking that have been conditioned upon us over the ages. It is an entirely natural ability that comes with being human. No extra effort required.

Put it this way, if you have a soul, then you are psychic. Simple as that. Using your ability means getting in touch with that part of yourself we call ‘the soul’ or whatever else you want to call it. It is of course much more complex than just ‘a soul’, but to simplify we can say it is that part of you that is connected with the source of all answers and is all you need for your healing and well-being.

The easiest and quickest way to access your intuition is primarily through imagination. You can also connect through sensations, feelings, sounds or knowingness, but imagination is the way that is most fun and natural. You may not think you are very imaginative, but if you can envision the simple image of an apple, then you already have what it takes to receive communication from your spirit. Now the task becomes to quiet the noise within and around you down enough so as to be able to hear the often subtle voice of your soul.

Daydreaming is a very fun and joyful way through which children access their own answers. They do this very naturally and without making a fuss about it. Children have not yet been heavily conditioned by those around them, so they allow their imagination and their spirits to wander and play around without restrictions. It is the fundamental curiosity and sense of wonder that drives them to ask the questions and receive the answers. Children are walking and talking geniuses and there is much we could learn from them.

Many of the adults today live their lives carrying around with them the fears, conditioning and the lies handed to them from their parents, authorities or other adults around them. These lies and responsibilities, that they accepted without any questioning, clothed them in an imaginary cloak of security, which was supposed to grant them success in life and keep them safe, but in reality has done nothing else than block them from seeing themselves and those around them clearly. The core lie here is that they cannot access their own answers and couldn’t possibly be psychic. The abilities are there, however, the only question remains: to which extent does any given person choose to use their abilities? Some people passionately pursue their intuitive capacity, while others may want to run from it and turn it off completely.

The basic intuitive skills class is the psychic kindergarten where your inner child gets a hello and you get the chance to slowly begin to nurture and turn own your natural abilities again. You get to be the child again and grow, play and have fun in a safe and supportive learning environment.

Next class series is beginning on March 11 at the Eastbourne Natural Fitness Centre. There are a few open spaces left. Click here to find out more and to ground your spot.

Wanted: visionaries that can see truth, love and beauty

On the night of January the 15th, Jesus came to me in my dream-space and showed me in the first person the experiences and events around and leading up to his crucifixion. While getting nailed to a cross may not strike as a very happy image for most people, I will, however, treasure this special visitation and the gifts gained from it for the rest of my life.

Truly, I am happy beyond any level of happiness I have ever been to have received this special insight from Jesus. That is because by reaching out to me and sharing with me one of his most intimate moments with the Supreme Being he is at the same time helping me with my life task or the very reason why I have incarnated into this body and lifetime. Jesus was without a doubt a great leader and a visionary who taught through his example the healing power of love and trust and stood up for those whose voices had not been heard before. Many, many miracles have been documented of the healings that he performed.

Interestingly, January 15 was also Martin Luther King’s birthday, who is another man that facilitated great societal change. Like Jesus, he inspired the masses with his impassioned speeches, spoke of choosing love over fear and stood up for the less advantaged. Both of these extraordinary men had a burning, passionate love for mankind and a great intolerance for hate, greed and injustice of any kind. As is appropriate for all true spiritual leaders throughout history, both of them also operated from the highest integrity, promoted equality for all and fiercely stood up for what is right.

Jesus, Martin Luther King and many other great leaders who have walked among us through the ages have all had something powerful working for them, namely: the gift of higher vision. They had the incredible ability to envision and take action towards a loving, kind and a beautiful existence for us all. And their vision was indeed very needed to lift us all as a collective up and out of the heaviness of our ignorance, unconsciousness, divisiveness and fear. Fortunately for us all, higher vision is an ability that can be accessed by everyone and isn’t exclusive to only a few extraordinary men and women.

Indeed, visualisation, which is a natural ability, is more than ‘just’ visualisation. When you decide to bring yourself to a visual level and allow yourself to see, you are in fact healing yourself and others, because by visualising you are accessing your spirit. And when you say hello to your spirit – magic happens.

The images you create in your mind’s eye are what will manifest into your reality. Imagination really is that powerful. So why not go ahead and imagine a peaceful, loving and beautiful existence for us all?

Nowadays with so many fear-based news stories dominating the media we need more people that say hello to the truth, love and beauty in things. Even just a few courageous individuals who stay centered on and constantly say hello to truth, love and beauty in all circumstances is what truly heals and progresses humanity right now. Humanity needs daily hellos from visionaries who step forward and speak up for what is right, visionaries who create beautiful works of art and visionaries that heal simply with a compassionate glance and their beautiful smiles.

In our present day and age we need leadership like Jesus, Martin Luther King and other beings like these who can see the value, worth and beauty of each and every one of us beyond what the appearances seem to be. We need leaders that can see beyond competition, our net worth or how we stack up against others in comparison. Humanity as a whole needs leaders now that teach from unconditional love and spread it around for us all through their decisive actions.

The scales of justice tip over to the side of injustice every time someone chooses to degrade, bully, belittle or otherwise invalidate another human being. And when one of us suffers – all of us suffer. It is the spiritual law.

The true leaders of today do not divide or separate us, but unite us through love and encourage each and every one of us to be our truest, most optimal selves. They reassure that we are loved no matter what. I say yes to a leader, who would invite me to a wild barefoot shamanic dancing and singing party where I could let go of all of my inhibitions and just be my most authentic self. That would be a wild non-alcoholic and vegan party, of course.

After all the encounters with Jesus and other master beings recently, I keep getting the comforting message from the Universe that you can proceed with your greatest joy and life purpose here and have the innocence and trust of a child that whatever you need will be provided as and when needed. “Thou shalt not want” doesn’t mean you should have no desires, but that you will never have to go without the food, love, shelter, kindness or whatever other sustenance that you need to nourish yourself. All that is needed to invite in this beautiful energy is a little more daily gratitude for what you already have and all will truly be well.

Grounding helps to make you real

As an intuitive energy reader and a healer I always work from a grounded space. Before I learned to ground myself I felt that something was missing. It was hard for me to be myself around others, to assert myself and to have my own space.

You ground yourself and all of your own information by connecting the base of your spine to the centre of the planet. Your own information is your spirit, your unique energy, and grounding is what helps to bring all of you back into your body. Without grounding you’d simply be floating around somewhere. A phrase comes to mind here for lack of grounding: “the lights are on, but no one’s home.”

Indeed, it was when I began practising grounding that I was finally able to lower my vibration enough to start taking real action steps towards my dreams, goals and life purpose. Without grounding it was nice to float around and explore the ethers, but it was also very hard to realise myself in the right here and now. So, when I was done with exploring and ready to get real, the Universe sent me teachers who taught me how to ground myself.

Giving myself a grounding cord in my early twenties was one of the most beautiful healing gifts I could have ever given to myself. I never felt more fulfilled until I started grounding myself and things only got better and better from there on. Grounding allowed me to release any old and excess pain energy that I’d been carrying around for everyone around me and I finally discovered who I was underneath all of that old energy. I discovered I could actually have my own space for myself. Knowing myself and getting clear on who I was, I was finally also able to become more assertive and self-assured.

Grounding allowed me to take back my space and to become more assertive.

Besides grounding myself I also began grounding everything else: my home, my town, my computer, my food, my dreams and much more. Doing so created many healings. Giving my dreams a grounding cord allowed for the vibration of the dream to manifest in the here and now much faster than it would have done without grounding. I also began healing stressful situations very quickly by grounding them.

On my recent trip to India I was on a flight from Trivandrum to Delhi and sat next to a traditional healer from a Southern Indian state. We spoke about many things and I introduced the grounding technique to him. He expressed his belief that grounding yourself you could become too materialistic and out of touch with your heart. This seems to be the prevailing belief out there and is actually not true since when you ground yourself you simply ground your own information. With grounding you can realise who you already are. And from that space of being real many wonderful healings and miracles happen. By grounding yourself you take full ownership of who you are and are then able to learn and grow much much more than you would be if you were aimlessly floating around in the ethers.

Grounding is what validates who you are as a spiritual being and helps to make you real here in the physical body.

Another thing this Indian healer and many old school practitioners share in common is that they often use a lot of external tools such as feathers, crystals, oracle cards, pendulums, oils, candles, incense and what not. At the Hello EssenceJoy Healing Centre we do not use external tools. Instead, we work from a centered and meditative space and only practice visual tools. We validate our own truth. Grounding and self-validation are essential to the intuitive path, because they allow you to feel safe enough in your body to have your abilities on turned on. With your abilities safely turned on you no longer need external tools since you have what you need already available to you within you.
