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.

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.

Being in your vertical flow

When pain comes up for us we immediately seek to lean on others for safety and security. The instinctive reaction to pain is to seek for nourishment, healing and reassurance outside of ourselves.

There is a lie in here that says that we can’t handle our pain. And underneath that lie is the fear that our pain could kill us. Pain is actually a good friend who has useful information to share to us about our lives. If we keep ignoring it – it will never go away.

From an early age we learn from those around us to connect with one another in a horizontal way. We cord into our mothers via the umbilical cord at first and later via an energetic cord. We go through life constantly cording into everyone: our partners, family members, friends, colleagues, clients … even acquaintances …

Cording is nothing unusual and actually comes by default. We send energetic cords into others for safety and security. We cord because we have lost the capacity to connect with the abundant resource of energy within us. The main negative side to cording is that it depletes the energy of the one being corded into. It is actually quite dis-empowering to allow cording.

There is a more optimal, more truthful and empowered way, namely: running your own vertical energy. It begins with you grounding into the planet below your feet instead of into those around you. Then, when you release all the energy from your space that is not yours, you replenish yourself by circulating your Earth and Cosmic energies. Indeed, your own vertical energy flows are all the healing and nourishment that you really need.

All the nourishment you’ll ever need comes from the Earth below your feet and the golden sun above your head, your essence. Call this your vertical flow. Now, occasionally you fall out of this flow – that’s when you are ready for a hello. Are you ready for one now? Check if you are in your centre!

Once you become conscious of your own energy and the various energy flows running through your energy channels on a daily basis it becomes easier to begin to direct those flows. Rather than giving all your energy away and becoming depleted through cording you can remove those cords and connect with an infinite resource of energy within you instead. With your vertical energy flowing you become self-sufficient.

Being free of cords allows you to have more space for you just to be you and to create from your own truth. What an easy and joyful way of being that is!

We look at cording and spiritual agreements in our ‘Meditation 2’ program week four class. Take this 6 week intuitive training to take the next step in your spiritual evolution.

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.

10 things that get in the way of your intuition

Your intuition is probably the most valuable asset in your spiritual toolbox. If you don’t listen to and trust your intuition, you might easily end up getting into trouble. Intuition is part of the picture of wholeness and has to be integrated.

Indeed, your intuition is like your very own spiritual GPS electronic map that shows you the way to your next step. You simply can’t go wrong by following your inner guidance. If you do not pay attention to your own intuitive communication, however, you can easily get lost in the wilderness of other people’s energies. That’s okay, too, because then you will learn to trust your intuition.

You may already be very intuitive and have very strong impressions and sensations of the people and situations around you, but may not have had much validation for it in the past. Maybe you grew up around people who were out of touch with themselves and didn’t want anyone around them to see them too clearly either. So you learned to ignore your hunches, cast them aside and file your experiences into the ‘coincidence folder’.

Quite frankly, your intuition is the voice of your own soul. To be intuitive is to be in touch with your soul. It’s that inner knowingness of what is truly right for you and what is not. And your soul communicates through the sensations in your body. So you need to trust your body.

The ‘meditation 1’ class is the psychic kindergarten and is the place to begin intuitive training. In this class you are given permission to turn off your judging, analytical mind and instead begin to playfully trust your intuition.

You already have an awesome intuition, but there may be some habitual blocks that can make it hard for you to pay attention. The following are 10 of the most typical ones …

  1. Analysis. The thing with intuition is that it can be quite subtle and therefore not something you can easily explain. Soon as you start to try and explain it, you will quickly lose touch with it and the intellect takes over. Nothing wrong with having good analytical skills, its just that they cannot be applied to intuition. Intuition often makes no sense so if you are stuck on having to make sense of what your intuition is telling you may be completely missing the message.
  2. Competition. This is a subtle one as even people that are very aware can at times not see that they are coming from competition. Some of the clues are: having to be right, having battles with others and arguing over what is true. We all have our own truths and there is no competition. Everyone deserves to have their needs met in gentle and loving ways.
  3. Judgement. When you read energy it is really important to have a neutral and unbiased perspective. It’s hard for you to be neutral when you are either in the analyser or in the emotional pain picture that has come up for you. That is what the centre of head is for. In order to see clearly you need to look from the centre of head. Only form the centre of head can you receive clear and unbiased information as opposed to reading from the second chakra, for example.
  4. Having to have a specific answer. When you look for information from the centre of head, what you are looking at is typically the very thing that needs to be seen. But you may easily miss it if you are stuck on having to see something specific such as a happy ending for a couple who might not even be meant for each other. Again, it’s important to look without any judgement or expectation, so as to be completely neutral to what your intuition is trying to communicate to you.
  5. Explaining yourself. Or in other words: having to prove yourself. Again, if you feel like you are having to defend yourself, your truth and your viewpoint or prove your value to someone, then you are leaving behind intuition and getting into the ego battle territory. Who do you have to make sense to? Is it not better just to accept yourself simply as you are? Spirit does not compete and has no need to explain or justify itself – it is self-sufficient and self-fulfilled.
  6. Lack of grounding. In order to trust your intuition you need to be grounded and in touch with your body. Your body is very intelligent and is constantly reading the vibes around it. If you are at all ungrounded, it will be hard for you trust your sensations and impressions. So you will need a good grounding. Grounding yourself in meditation also helps your body to feel safe enough to turn on your spiritual abilities.
  7. Invalidation. For you to make progress in your communication with your intuition, your soul or spirit, you have to start somewhere. Namely, you have to start by validating yourself and your own impressions. Throw away the need to be right, to have to make sense or having to defend what you experience – simply validate your perceptions and your ability will begin to grow. Here’s the thing, not quite everyone around you can see and validate you for who you really are and what you are capable of. You need to give this gift to yourself – you need to validate yourself.
  8. Being in a hurry. If you seem to be constantly in a hurry somewhere to get something done, then you will simply have no time to just sit and be. And so your energy will be all over the place outside of yourself fixing everything, healing others, solving problems. And typically all that energy goes to pleasing everyone else. Only by slowing down and bringing yourself back to yourself in present time can you begin to see clearly.
  9. Seriousness. Seriousness is really like a disease in that it makes everything heavy and burdensome. And being too serious you will easily miss the lighter vibration of your spirit trying to communicate with you. In order to get in touch with your intuition you need to find your amusement! Spirit likes to dwell in a body that is happy and light-hearted.
  10. Not present. If you are not in the present time in the body it will be hard for you to see clearly. A large portion of your energy may be floating around elsewhere along the timeline perhaps solving something, healing someone, figuring something out, processing some old pain and therefore less of you will be available to you to create and see with in the present. Your spirit communicates with you in the present moment, so you need to bring yourself all the way back into the now here.

That thing we call intuition? It’s your soul. You can trust it. ~Unknown

Take your time

We are always in a hurry to get to the next ‘big thing’. Same happens as we move through the tasks in a day: we go from one thing to the next without taking a proper break. It’s like the disease of this century. There never seems to be enough time to just sit, breathe and be.

Having your to-do-list crammed full of items can be like an addiction. People even brag about having a lot to do as if it were a good thing. They pride themselves on multitasking and are always chasing more activity, more money, more this or that. God forbid if you sit still for five minutes and just breathe.

Living in this way, always hurrying somewhere, you are living with a large portion of your energy either projected out into the future or stuck in the past. As in, “I will be happy when … ” – you fill the blank. To a clairvoyant it will look like your aura is projected out in front of you. With little of your energy available to you in the present, you can easily become diluted, spread too thin and simply burned out.

Always having a lot to do and a chasing a lot of things to have throws things out of balance. When your energy is spread out to the past and the future, there simply won’t be enough of you in the present and you need your energy in the present to heal your body. We can restore that balance by grounding ourselves into the present by taking more time with each task, dwelling on them a little longer to extract the full value from them and honouring the body’s limits.

A healing happens when you ground yourself back into this present moment and choose to let go of all the non-essential. It is such a beautiful gift to yourself to instead slow down, choose to have fewer things to do and savour each moment.

This business of life and living, it’s not all about doing and having. Just being is also a worthy companion.

So, who or what has control over your schedule today? Does your to-do-list include breathing breaks? Are you the one choosing your tasks or is there some other energy outside of you controlling your space? Could it be your mother’s expectations of you? Take a look right now!

Imagine if there was nothing you ‘had’ to do, then what would you want or choose to do? What comes to you as an answer to this question is probably the most important thing for you to be doing right now! And that thing may in fact be doing nothing in particular at all and simply breathing.

So, today take back ownership of your space and take your time. Slow down and take your time when you have your favourite cup of tea, when you watch your favourite TV series, when you walk through a forest, when you water your plants, when you feed your dogs, when you play with your children or when you do your work. These moments are precious and will never repeat in exactly the same way again. Nothing is permanent. Infuse lots of gratitude, appreciation and beauty into each and every moment. Be totally present and savour each moment before moving on to the next thing.

Imagine if you were infinitely lovable and taken care of by an extremely compassionate Universe, savouring each moment without hurrying to the next thing would indeed be the most beautiful gift you could possibly give to yourself. Why are you in a hurry anyways when the whole of eternity is yours to play with!

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.

Where are you heading?

Who wrote the script to your life? Are you the one consciously choosing how to live your life and where you are heading by consciously changing the script every day or are you following someone else’s story? Are you consciously choosing where you want to go next or are you running on autopilot?

We are all run by the stories we tell ourselves, the pictures we carry around in our spaces and the programming we have accepted as our truth. Those may be happy and heroic stories or stories of sadness and victimhood. A happy story lives in the present moment while the victim story wants to predict future. If a story doesn’t feel good and doesn’t lead to joy, then it may be time to let go of that story. You have that freedom.

Often when pain comes up, people want a fortune-teller to make predictions about their future and have a guru hand them a clearly defined map for what comes next. The thing is, however, that the future is not predetermined. There is no set destiny that dictates where you are supposed to be heading and what you should be doing. There is no ‘should’ or ‘have to’ – those are simply limitations that come from expectations and demands from others.

You as a spiritual being chose to lower your vibration and to incarnate into this body in this particular time-frame in order to experience certain things here on the physical plane. You have a goal and a purpose for the lifetime. However, there is no set way in which to reach this goal – you get to choose how you want to play. You have an energy that is entirely unique only to you and only you can choose how you want to experience being in a body. Your body is your mock-up and only you have the power to choose where you want to go with it.

We ourselves get to choose what is around the corner for us. We can’t choose for others, but we can choose for ourselves.

Generally, what sets the tone for where you are heading is the energy in your space. It’s the choices you are making right now, the programming from others that you have accepted as truth, the images you visualize daily, the thoughts you think and the words you speak right now. It all really depends on what you bring your attention to, focus on and breath life into and that can all be changed through energywork, meditation and visualization.

The only way to begin to heal the stories that you tell is to step into full ownership of where you are right now. Only from this space of spiritual accountability can you truly begin to see and own what is yours and release what is not yours.
