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.

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.

Self-love allows you to show up in your fullness

Sometimes that part of us that we consider dark and unacceptable, aka ‘the shadow’, comes up bringing with it some uncomfortable old emotions or experiences.

‘The shadow’ is really just an umbrella term for everything that is as of yet unknown to us about ourselves on a conscious level. It is ‘the stuff’ we have shoved into the unconscious for processing another time. It is our unconscious beliefs about ourselves and those are what either hold us back from living a life of fullness and beauty or what give us an unknown confidence and courage to reach for the stars.

Within what we call ‘the shadow’ are contained old addictions, tendencies, worries, fears, inadequacies, and so forth, all of which are the product of the experiences we’ve had over many many lifetimes. That stuff can be uncomfortable to be with and the knee-jerk reaction is to try to escape it all through some form of an addiction, which only serves to numb the pain. Healing, however, comes from not attempting to overcome your shortcomings or to seek to ‘improve yourself’, but to completely own and love whatever comes up. There is nothing to improve and everything to own and accept.

Self-love means to lovingly accept everything about yourself and not just the parts that are popular and easy to accept. This also means unconditionally loving your shadow. Apply self-love to yourself like a mother tends to her wounded child with utmost tenderness.

You become a teacher of love by simply loving yourself for all that you are without trying to hide or fix anything about yourself and by showing up authentic.

If you try to hide your shortcomings or to cover them up so as to appear strong and invulnerable to others, you are doing yourself and everyone else a disservice. No one benefits from perfection – there is enough emotional deadness already. Like a desert that is thirsty for rain, the world needs more people who walk in authenticity. Remaining vulnerable, soft and open no matter what is the greatest form of leadership and gift anyone can ever give to the planet right now.

There is a very old lie that both men and women with higher masculine energy carry around, it is the belief that vulnerability and sensitivity is a weakness. However, here’s the catch: it takes vulnerability to live your dreams and to reach fulfilment. It is your vulnerability that inspires others and allows them to feel safe enough to open up, too. It is vulnerability that creates loving communities.

If you were used to being discriminated or grew up in an unloving home you may still be feeling the effects of the abuse and wondering what you did to deserve that. Your inner child may still be carrying wounds. And you might still be looking outside of yourself for approval since none of it was forthcoming during your early years. However, no one else can ever know you in your fullness and approve all of you in the way that you can. The only person whose approval you’ll ever need is your own.

Intuitive tools 101: the miracle of a spiritual hello

Just recently I spoke on the phone with someone from a psychic hot-line based here in the UK and it quickly became very clear that most of the general public are looking for a prediction on what will be rather than what can be worked with in the present time. There is really very little awareness of choice and creating in present time.

I looked at the energy of this hot-line as well as their website and saw that they rely heavily on their readers making predictions in the old-school fortune telling style, which is that the reader gives the readee a kind of a promise of what will happen so as to calm the readee’s fears about the future. This is to ensure that those readees keep coming back to this hot-line on a regular basis.

This style of psychic reading, however, does not consider the creative spirit of either the readee or the reader! The reader isn’t working with one’s own pictures and the readee isn’t having to do much work on oneself either. No growth is gained here. Not to mention it is dis-empowering.

An interesting observation I made was that it’s especially those people who have a large part of their energy vibrating in the past that are the ones most anxious about the future and seeking predictions. That is, they are working through some sort of heavy karma and have not as of yet awakened to themselves as a creative spirit in a body.

A readee who is seeking a quick prediction often does not realize that the future isn’t set in stone and that one can alter it by making choices in the present. He doesn’t realize that he creates his own reality through choices and beliefs in the present. Very few people also realize that instead of a prediction that promises great riches, fame and success, all one really needs is a simple healing.

The psychic reading style that does not consider the creative spirit, the soul or whatever you wan to call it, is lacking the most essential ingredient. Without such an awareness no true healing can occur.

Most people are unaware of themselves as spiritual beings and are unable to validate their own spirits. However, spirit, which is your own unique information, grows through validation. Your perceptions grow through your own inner validation not so much through validation that you receive from the outside. Outer validation can be a bonus of course, but can’t be leaned on at all times.

Sometimes, when processing invalidation, it can feel as though your hello doesn’t count, as though nothing works and all this energywork is just airy-fairy and plain useless, because there is very little outer world validation for it. Much of what we discuss about the world of energy is indeed subjective and depending on everyone’s own personal beliefs and perceptions, each of which are valid for that individual, of course, but here’s the one thing that always works miraculously: a spiritual hello! A simple spiritual hello is all that is needed sometimes to help heal someone and to help them back on track. It’s like a spiritual hug.

When you receive a hello on your spirit, an immediate healing happens. You will automatically be able to access the source of healing and well-being for yourself, the source of your own answers.

A simple spiritual hello to someone in a growth period is enough to give them a healing. No words, long explanations or theories are necessary. Just a graceful spiritual hello and one can immediately begin to access one’s own answers.

I have given many spiritual hello’s by visually looking at and validating someone on a spiritual level and witnessed the immediate miraculous effects of doing so each time. I have given spiritual hellos through thousands of scheduled readings as well as in impromptu everyday life situations.

I will share some examples with you …

One time, a few years ago now, I was doing part-time work in health care and I was working in a nursing home, caring for a very old woman. She had advanced dementia and was completely bed-ridden. That day she did not want to eat, but I was told by the senior nurse to continue to encourage her to eat. So I decided to check in with her on a spiritual level and give her a hello to see if a healing would make a difference. Her previously dull and lifeless eyes suddenly opened full of wonder and surprise. She now looked straight at me as though with recognition – she could not believe I could actually see her in her true form beyond the body. She then psychically communicated to me that she did not want to eat. I stopped trying to feed her and left her in peace after this.

Another time I was walking a woman with dementia, who had been wandering, back to her flat. She is a very sweet lady, very co-operative and peaceful, but very confused and usually does not make much sense when she speaks. Then, as we were walking, I suddenly saw a being out in front of me right outside of her apartment. She then asked me very clearly ‘who is it?’ I was astonished by her sudden responsiveness and presence; obviously, she too could see the being.

And last year after a bit of an unpleasant flight, when I arrived at the baggage collection area, I found out that my suitcase was missing and I wasn’t sure if I was ever getting it back! I then gave this whole situation a spiritual hello. I made sure to see the situation resolved and sent my gratitude to all those who were working hard to deliver my suitcase back to me. A few moments later I received a text message that the suitcase had been located and was already on its way back to me. While this wasn’t a hello to a living being as such it was still a hello on the energy of the situation and a hello to those that were in charge of this situation. This stressful situation became healed and resolved almost instantly with the help of a spiritual hello.

So the practical action steps to take are …

  1. Center yourself and get into a nice meditative space.
  2. Bring your awareness to the middle of your head.
  3. Visually see yourself out in front of you. See yourself grounded. See you energy moving. See your chakras spinning, aura layers flowing. See and sense.
  4. Enjoy the spiritual hello!

If you want to learn to center yourself and give yourself and others a spiritual hello, come and join the ‘Meditation I’ program. It is an ongoing correspondence program currently. There will be another series beginning in March. Look out for notifications!

When you touch someone’s life – it is a privilege. When you touch someone’s heart – it is a blessing. When you touch someone’s mind – it is an honor. When you touch someone’s soul – it is a triumph. When you touch someone’s spirit – it is a miracle. ~ Dr. Jeff Mullan

Intuitive tools 101: being in present time

Bringing your awareness back into the present moment is the first step you take when you begin to meditate. This is often not an immediate event, but tends to be a smooth transition. You do this very gently.

When you start to meditate, you may have to take a moment to call your energy back into present time from wherever it may have been spread out to and from wherever you may have been handling something for yourself and others. Typically our energies can get quite scattered all over the place.

Your spiritual body is very flexible with the time-line and can travel across all directions of time with great ease, but if you don’t regularly ground and come back into present time, your natural body can become anxious. Bringing yourself back into present time is immediately healing and calming for your physical body.

Here’s the thing, everything occurs in the present time including your ability to see clearly. It will be hard to see clear images when visualizing if a large part of your energy is vibrating in the past or in the future. You need to reset your grounding into present time and create and destroy some roses in order to be able to see clearly.

With your awareness in present time and more of your own energy available to you – you will able to see clearly. And being able to see clearly you will be more easily able to heal yourself.

The pain in the physical body often acts as an alarm bell that brings you back into the present moment and that’s because the physical body itself is always in the present time. If you bump into a table, you will know about it. Being present to yourself effectively avoids collisions.

We tend to get anxious about the future or depressed about the past, because we typically either hold on to pain from the past or worry about potential dangers in the future. That is the instinctive animal mind and it is only human. Bringing your energy back into present time through complete surrender and trust you can heal yourself and regain a childlike innocence. You surrender to the Divine and trust that all your cares and concerns will be taken care of according to Divine will.

Practising grounded meditation can also require some discipline as you may need to let go of responsibility that isn’t yours and instead own what is yours. Not always a pretty picture, which is often why people go unconscious, pop out of body, drift away and either start guilt-tripping about the past or roaming through the future.

The only way through those ingrained tendencies is constant spiritual practice done with dedication and discipline. Negative tendencies are overcome with constant repetitions of new positive ones and a good dose of trust and surrender.

The present moment is all there is. Both he past and future exist only in our imagination. And the good thing with imagination is that if there’s something you don’t like, you can change it. In the same way you can heal the past by playfully re-visualizing difficult situations in a way as to empower yourself and by bringing your affinity for yourself back into present time.

Get back into present time with grounded meditation and join the Meditation program.

Uniqueness is on the table

Each of us brings to the table something entirely unique – ourselves. What makes you unique? What do you bring to the table?

There is no competition in that. You can’t compete with anyone to be more you. You can only be who you are already.

“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” ― Oscar Wilde

You are different from others and that is something to celebrate. It is a gift. You don’t have to match to others or to conform. Nor do you need to explain yourself or have everyone’s agreement for you to be wholly and totally you.

If you have always been different from others, and deep down inside you know you are no matter how hard you try to fit in, it may be cumbersome to be around others who want you to fit in or be like everyone else. The group always expects you to conform to the group. Because of this you may have withdrawn from participating in group events and maybe even feel a little victimized, but there is no one to blame for what you feel. What you bring to the table is unique and entirely your own. Only you can own it. Only you can own all your good, bad, beautiful, weird and ugly.

Are you comfortable being different from others and standing out in a group or do you hide? It may have been safer to hide in the past, maybe you were punished for being different and unique, but if you keep doing so you will continue to miss out on a whole bunch of fun! Namely, the fun of getting to be you. Hiding doesn’t do anyone, especially yourself, any favors. Besides, it takes a lot more effort to be someone who you are not than it does to simply be who you already are!

It may have been safer to hide in the past, but now is the time to come out of your hiding, to be seen and shine. Life is short – use your time to live on your own terms.

Each of us have some unique gift that we bring along by simply being ourselves, by being true to ourselves, without going into effort and trying to be like anyone else. Each of us is a piece of a larger puzzle and cannot be excluded or something valuable will be missing. Once you realize this it will be easier to value yourself. You bring value simply by being yourself.

In the eyes of the Divine you are not expected to be like anyone else, in fact you do great service by being something entirely creatively different and unique.

There is a beautiful effortless flow of beingness where insights and intuition leads you on every moment. You don’t have to do anything you don’t want. Clear the energy that tells you otherwise!

In the eyes of love, you are a beautiful diamond. Some energy in your space may be telling you to make yourself small so as to accommodate others in your life who want to hide, but with the help of intuitive healing you can clear that.

Don’t compare yourself with anyone, it’s a trap! Love yourself unconditionally and wholly as the imperfectly perfect being you already are. You heal yourself by being your unique unedited self without apologies, explanations or defensiveness. Loving and embracing yourself as you are you also bless and heal everyone else you come into contact with.

Your essence is here in a physical body and learning very specific and unique lessons of its own. It has its own unique ‘job’ to do here. That ‘job’, is something you do by simply being You. It may or may not match with your day job. Your true job and you are very needed on this planet. You are very loved by your Creator. Once you discover what that job is, you can begin to say prayers that are truly yours without resistance to the outcomes. For example, I’ve noticed that I lift the energy of groups that I’m part of simply by showing up there. Over time I’ve learned not to take responsibility for any stuff I pick up and to safely release anything that isn’t mine.

Dealing with a psychic whack

Sometimes you say or do something that someone isn’t in agreement with. They don’t like what you are doing. They can’t whack you physically, so they whack you energetically. That is a psychic whack.

A whack can come from an angry person in traffic, in a grocery store line, it can come from a competitor in business and even a family member who doesn’t like you being too honest, for example.

It’s called a psychic whack since it is something you will definitely notice as a psychic: there is a change or a drop in energy levels, some lower energy has entered your space. Your aura may look out of shape.

You know you’ve been whacked when you’ve been around someone angry or angered someone and suddenly feel worried, nervous, anxious, awkward or out of touch with yourself. Suddenly you feel low self-esteem and are not quite sure why. You probably feel like you need to explain yourself or even defend your value or worth to someone. As if you had to apologize for simply being there.

Obviously, a whack comes from a space of anger, pain, unfulfilled expectations and demand. It comes from someone who is trying to stay in control and is a demand that you handle some energy for them, some energy they can’t or won’t handle for themselves.

Deep down inside it is really a request for love and attention. It’s a cry for help, they simply don’t know a better way to ask for it. This isn’t to say that it is okay to be whacked, but it just means that it isn’t personal. Nothing is ever personal.

The first step towards healing is to step out of resistance to it. Whacks happen. It’s nothing personal. From here on you have the choice whether to whack them back (not recommended) or instead forgive, realize it wasn’t about you and use your tools to heal and clear yourself.

So which tools can you use to handle an energetic whack? First of all, check that you are still grounded. Destroy a few roses or a lot of roses. Check that your energy is still running. Then run some more energy. Keep running your energy and destroying roses until you feel clear. You learn these invaluable psychic tools in the meditation class.

Surrender and trust

Surrender and trust is a big theme that we are exploring collectively within this year of 2015.

For everyone, there comes a time when they run out of answers, a sense of direction, certainty and even ideas. Instead of surrendering to the flow, one may be struggling hard to remain in control; especially if they are carrying a whole bunch of responsibility for holding it all together for others and for healing them.

Here’s the clue that you may be struggling unnecessarily: it’s when you feel like things aren’t going the way you wanted and you just can’t seem to let go of control. Another sign is a lot of frustration, anger and disappointment that comes along with it. This is actually the perfect time to surrender and simply trust in the flow and wisdom of your essence.

Surrender and trust are very soft and feminine energies. It is something women seem to be much more capable of having than men. Men and male energy tend to be more controlling. It can be challenging for men to let go of control and to trust in the Universal flow.

However, simply having trust in the divine intelligence that created you is a powerful prayer. Sitting in that space of trust is a state of grace. You heal both yourself and many others when you embrace that state of grace.

Remaining trusting, open and vulnerable even in the face of challenges and not withdrawing your love for yourself and others is the key to success. This is how you heal yourself.

Coming to that point where you have to let go of your illusion of control and instead surrender and trust may mean having to ask for help, directions and guidance. Are you ready to let go of the old picture of going it alone and instead joining others in a beautiful web of mutual support that surrounds us in every moment?

When you decide you are tired of struggling and choose to surrender you are not giving up. Instead you are like a baby who surrenders to his mother’s soft caressing. You are gently held in that love and there is truly no greater safety than this. Again, you may have to let go of the picture of you always having to be the super responsible grown-up.

Surrendering and trusting means that no matter what happens in life, what you need will always be there precisely when you need it. God is always on time. Time and timing is of the essence.

There is the life your ego wants, which may be a life of fantasy. And then there’s the life of your essence – living your divine purpose and fulfilling your divine assignments. You know you are on track when you feel inspiration and the joy of being. You can trust that the Universe always makes sure you stay on track by always giving you what you need instead of what you want.

It’s your choice how you wish to live your life, however, when you live exclusively from the ego you will quickly run out of energy because you are running on a limited source of energy. When you are running on the energy of your essence, you are running on an infinite energy source and could never run out of energy.

Break-down or burnout only happens when you carry around with you the heaviness of ego illusions and expectations. It’s when you cart your past around with you. In reality, that is what is being broken down and burned out. Bit by bit. All the way down to your essence, to that part of you that is really true about you. Your essence can’t be broken down or burned out, because it is real and infinite. Essence is pure love and joy. So say goodbye to what you are letting go of and hello to the more optimal version of you.

When you yourself are in and operating from essence and are being on your path – others around you immediately match to that. This is ‘being with God’ and is your highest protection. When you are in essence, you can trust that you are in good company. There is a grace and a smooth flow to everything in that and those who can’t match you at that level will simply move out of the picture. It’s the same reason why people have miraculous experiences and synchronicity around spiritual masters.

Surrender and trust may require you to let go of that perfect picture in your head that dictates how your life is supposed to be and instead embrace how it actually is without judgment. Perhaps then you may even want to play with the notion that you don’t have to do anything to become divine – you are already it.

What is an intuitive reading?

An intuitive reading is a space for you to be seen as a creative being in a body. It’s a space to receive validation for who you really are and that can be tremendously healing.

Seeing clearly is a spiritual ability, one that is already yours and came along with the package since birth. For many, however, they may need to get through the fog of a whole bunch of unconsciousness, invalidation and mental-emotional image pictures before they can admit to themselves that this ability is real.

An intuitive reading is very simply communication on the energy that you are presently carrying around in your space. This communication may meet your expectations or not, but it will surely be validating.

The truth shall set you free. Throw away any expectations you may have about what you will hear in a reading and be open to receive.

The beauty of a reading is that always the right amount of communication or information comes through. Absolutely no effort is required.

A reading is about you, your questions, your energy, your path, your growth period and the energy of your agreements with yourself and others in present time. It is so healing to get a hello on those things and you can ask about anything!

It’s not fortune-telling or predicting! Predictions can be made, but they may or may not be accurate. Remember that the future is not set in stone and it all depends whether those agreements become fulfilled or not.

Whatever goes on in your life is happening by an agreement. You can get a hello on those agreements in a clairvoyant reading or a healing session. The agreements are there to grow from. When you learn what the growth is, you can have more freedom in choosing how you wish to grow into your Next Step.

At the end of the reading you’ll also get a hello on your Next Step, which looks at where it is that you are going.

I’m very grateful for every intuitive reading I do, because it’s a growth opportunity each time. When I get lit up, I also get to look at my own issues, pictures, outdated beliefs and agreements that may have kept me stuck and small. Helping another – I am also being helped. The Universe always knows precisely which clients to bring to me, so the meeting is never ‘accidental’. The ones I may have resistance to are the ones that bring the most precious jewels of wisdom and growth along with them.
