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.

Become renewed and transformed with meditation

When moving through a challenging growth period, where do you find support and renewal?

Your growth period may be quite a biggie. You may be handling some difficult energies such as disappointment, pain, hurt, confusion or other. Maybe life is challenging you to let go of your expectations about how things should be and instead surrender to the Universal flow? Whatever the case, spiritually we grow the most when we do not get what we want, because we are bumping into our own attachments to things.

Remember that sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck. ~ Dalai Lama

By default, when discomfort, pain or growth comes up, most people go into the habitual comfort patterns. They might reach for food, drink, entertainment or substances. They may be constantly checking social profile or email. They may spend copious amounts of time working or doing whatever else will temporarily give them an endorphin rush. These are the addictions and bad habits that only strengthen and confirm attachment to worldly things. The problem with addictions is primarily that they are there only as a distraction, a futile attempt to fill a hole that can not be filled. It’s like applying band-aid on a broken bone – it will simply not do the job.

Giving in to your addictions, however severe or mild they may be, might temporarily alleviate the discomfort, but completely ignores and invalidates the real source of your troubles.

In holistic medicine we look to deal with and heal the source rather than merely band-aiding the symptoms. There is really no point in wasting time with addictions and distractions. The only way through really is to deal with the underlying issues head on rather than running away from them. For most people, however, the source of one’s pain may be difficult to discern, so quiet time is needed to commune with the truth in one’s body and soul.

A good way to begin to renew and heal yourself in a life-affirming and holistic way and to connect with the truths in your heart and body is to spend time out in the nature. You might already have discovered this for yourself and may already be doing it regularly. If not, I highly recommend it – nature is a great healer.

Now, if for whatever reason you can’t spend time out in the nature, you could practice meditation and grounding in the peace and quiet of your own home instead. Adding daily meditation into your schedule will put you firmly on the path to balance and self-healing. Meditation and grounding may very well be the tools that help you through the most difficult times. I have not, as of yet, discovered anything else more effective and powerful.

I like to imagine my meditation time as taking the time to stop, smell the roses and nourish myself by drinking the life giving waters directly from the Well of Life itself, which is of course Source. I use meditation time to commune with the truth in my heart. I just sit in silence without trying to do anything and observe without judgement what comes up. Then using visualisation I might act on what I see or not, whatever feels right at the time. There are no rules.

At times we can move through life a little wilfully, trying to get our way, trying to control others and situations. And then act like spoiled little brats when we don’t get our own way. With meditation you can begin to transform this pattern and surrender to the Universal flow, which takes care of everyone’s needs equally. Through meditation you create the space to discover that there is no need to control anything. In such a state of surrender you instead become receptive to spirit to flow into you and as a result to bring you all that it is that you have asked and yearned for. And it will come in a more beautiful and graceful way than you were able to even imagine from your limited human perspective.

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.

2017 is the golden year of spirit

Each year brings with it its own unique energy flavour and 2017 is the year when spirit gets a hello in a very big way. The current energetic atmosphere makes it possible to make great strides in spiritual growth.

This is not a prediction, but rather an observation on what is happening right now. For us as a human race there is the choice to either continue the old way, keep clinging to our comfort and let ego rule the day or we could take that evolutionary step forward and instead give ourselves over to spirit and let spirit lead the way. With the current personal, community, environmental and global challenges we have in front of us it is obvious that if were to let ego continue to rule the day we would surely be heading for self-destruction. Only with spirit leading the way can we become healed and whole again. Many people on the planet already operate solely out of spirit, but there are many as of yet to follow suit.

If you try to carry on business as usual you might not find this year a particularly pleasant or an easy one since the ego no longer gets to have the upper hand. We have seen what happens when people act out of fears and selfishness and it has not been pretty.

The global events throughout 2016 have shown that nothing can be predicted with much accuracy anymore and the only constant you can really rely on is change. This is great since all that unconscious stuff that has been sitting stagnant, hidden away from plain view and manipulating us from the shadows for a long long time is finally getting moved around and being updated into present time now. All the old lies, destructive patterns and fear-based programming that have been controlling, manipulating and sabotaging people from the unconscious have been revealed and brought to clear daylight. We now know exactly who and what we are really dealing with. We know what we must do to move forward. There is no more hiding, no more sitting on the sidelines and accepting the things that are not acceptable. And no one gets to have shortcuts here – we are all in the same boat, so to speak.

More and more people are becoming spiritual activists and are asking the tough questions. Instead of operating on blind faith more people are really examining those long-held beliefs about themselves and their leaders.

The energy of the year 2017 is such that it is especially supportive of new beginnings in every way. It’s a brilliant year to leave behind old habits, that old low-salary job that has been draining your energy, that toxic relationship that has been making you feel inadequate and whatever else has been holding you back from taking that quantum leap into the life you have been dreaming of. Take your next step with the help of an intuitive session right now.

In 2017 visionary leaders are needed, those who can see the truth, love and beauty even in the ugliest of situations. The planet needs those who can boldly imagine a happier, more joyful world for us all to live in.

We need creatives and healers to step up as the spiritual leaders that they truly are. Indeed, much compassion will be needed from the spiritually more experienced ones now more than ever before especially since so many people are awakening.

It will serve us all well to keep in mind that the only place where each and every one of us really has that authority and control is still our own backyards, ourselves and our own energy. This is to say that we cannot control, fix, heal or solve anything for others if such help is not required or asked for.

The best steps we can take immediately and start to move forward is to see what we can change in ourselves right now. This begins with turning within, meditating and using visualization to create the kind of a year we would like to have. Indeed, spirit creates through images, pictures and visions and by creating a clear mental picture of what you want – you will draw that to you. Some action will be required as well, of course, but as you clarify your vision, you will attract what you want to you more effortlessly.

Heal with forgiveness

At times the people in our lives can say or do things that can be hurtful to us. Maybe something happened ‘in the heat of the moment’ or maybe no harm was even intended and simply an old wound got lit up for you.

Whatever the case, things happen and we have the choice to either open up and bleed and feel it all or close down and put up a wall. More often than not people prefer to run, hide and build walls, which does nothing but contribute to the sense of division and isolation from others. It takes a lot of courage to stay in one’s vulnerability when things get uncomfortable or when pain comes up.

Whether harm from another was intended or not it is an immediate healing to fully acknowledge and own the pain that can come up at times. You powerfully heal yourself and others when you allow yourself to stay fully present with your feelings rather than casting them aside as troublesome or inconvenient. If you don’t own and feel your stuff now it will come up again at another time, so you might as well just go ahead and do the work now.

Sometimes disagreements arise between people because of their differences from one another and these disagreements can be resolved gently and kindly with respect and reverence towards all involved or there can be negative reactions that individuals usually wish they had handled differently. In those times we must remind ourselves that all of us are indeed spiritual beings on a human path and nobody’s perfect. We all learn and we all make mistakes – that’s what we’re here for and is primarily how we grow.

Each one of us is so very unique and simply cannot be compared to another. Everyone is different and has their own approaches and perspectives in life. Sometimes we simply disagree on things, but we can always agree to disagree.

Truth is, we all came from the same source and we are all heading in the same direction, too. That direction is love and inclusiveness.

There are different kinds of wounds and reasons for why they are created. Some of them can be from this lifetime and some can go very far back to past lives. It is precisely at that time when you are ready to face these old wounds that they get triggered again around a specific person or place. This is no accident or coincidence and was indeed divinely orchestrated by your essence, aka your higher self, so you could release the past and move on to greener pastures.

I understand that it can be very difficult to forgive an aggressor, but the thing with holding on to anger or unforgiveness toward another is that at the end of the day the only person these heavy emotions will really harm is you. Choosing to hold on to the old toxic energy of unforgiveness is an energy leak since by doing so you are in fact keeping a piece of your energy hostage in the past. That energy could be very well be used for something much more productive such as your creative projects.

Forgiving someone doesn’t mean you condone what they did. It means releasing the toxic energy you have been holding on to so you can move on.

Let me clarify this just in case it wasn’t clear from the start: there is nothing wrong with feeling anger, unforgiveness or any other heavy emotions. When an injustice occurs, an emotional response is only natural and is there to communicate some truth to you. However, after the experience is over and lessons have been learned, it is time to let go.

Being willing to release your anger and consciously choosing to forgive is a hello to the truth that we come here to have experiences based on our spiritual agreements with one another. Once the agreements are complete and experiences have been had it is time to integrate.

Everyone heals in their own way and at their own pace. There is no rush and there is no pressure to heal fast. Most importantly you heal by expressing your feelings and the truths that have been stirred in your heart. It does not serve anyone to hold your deep truths and pain inside.

Once you reach the other side of your forgiveness process you can once again start to entertain the idea that everyone is always doing their best. Yes, even those that seem to be outright intentionally harming others. Indeed, universal justice exists and no one ever gets away with anything. This Universe of ours is a very fair and just one and we are very blessed. Staying centered in these simple truths we can start to move forward into the future with childlike innocence and trust again.

Energywork tip: you can use imagination for this forgiveness exercise. Imagine a gold rose between you and the person or event you would like to forgive. Just keep saying hello to the gold rose until you have sufficient space from this person or event. Once you get your space back and become neutral to all the strong emotions that have come up you can start to heal.

Becoming the total embodiment of your true self

Today may seem like any other day, but in reality it is a very special day indeed. Numerologically speaking today’s date carries with it the 9/9/9 vibration and holds within it immense power for healing, closure and manifestation.

This whole year of 2016 I’ve been watching with curiosity, wonder and amazement how the current year number 9 has been playing itself out. The 999 sequence has literally popped up everywhere and carries with it a lot of meaning. You can easily find out the meaning of the triple 9 by googling it, but I would encourage you to notice what this number sequence means for you personally – you can do that by just paying attention to what the events, situations, lessons and blessings are for you right now.

The number 9 is generally known to represent the Universal spiritual laws, a higher perspective, influence, non-conformity, leading life as a positive example for others, altruism, humanitarianism, philanthropy, healing, teaching, guidance, closure and endings.

Having an abundance of 9 energy in one date signifies the meaning of the number 9 being magnified, which means that it is especially important to pay attention to its meaning. Looking closely, this is truly a time of endings, of doing kind deeds for the humanity as a whole and getting down to business as far as true life purpose is concerned. It’s a good time to take a look at what you are done with and where you want to go next. Of course it can also mean completions in a karmic sense so it’s not always an easy ride – it depends on where you have been! If there is something karmic for you to look at then you may be triggered today. And that is a good thing.

In fact, the whole year of 2016 has been building up to these three dates: September 9, 18 and 27. They all hold the 9/9/9 vibration. If you look closely at the events throughout this year you can see clearly that indeed some sort of collective karmic themes have been explored. Regardless of the drama that has ensued, the most important thing is that people are awakening to their true life purpose.

From a higher perspective the 9/9/9 date signifies the fulfillment of the masculine and the feminine – the union of shiva and shakti as they are known in Hinduism. It’s a good time to take a close look at how you embody both the feminine and the masculine qualities within yourself and where you could possibly embrace more of either one or the other thus becoming more complete and whole within yourself.

Something to be aware of is that the dark masculine can be a fearsome, destructive and bloodthirsty warrior while the dark feminine can be an evil witch. We all carry the elements of both within ourselves. If you don’t accept, love and own the uncomfortable stuff it will simply get pushed into the unconscious and continue to seek expression in an unconscious way, which means it will then simply control your life from behind the scenes. By having something come up for you you will be in a position to examine it in the light of day rather than have it continue controlling your life from the unconscious.

As you own your power, sit in ownership of your true self and speak your truth, the relationships around you will inevitably change. Here’s something to bare in mind: you deserve love and respect and it’s absolutely safe to let go of relationships that do not honor and respect who you really are. If someone rejects you for who you are when you are coming from a pure and authentic place within yourself then they are in fact rejecting themselves. Leave them with their own processes, you can’t change other people’s reactions or choices. It is for them to live with. Be complete within yourself and take good care of yourself by choosing relationships and friendships that honor you. This is to say: trust the wise intuitive counsel of your body.

As a sensitive and aware being you might have been teased from an early age about your sensitivity or bullied or intimidated because you were somehow different. You might still be carrying these wounds around with you in your energy field or these old pictures that say you are somehow not good enough or somehow lacking something. It is loving toward yourself to avoid harsh relationships or situations and to steer toward simplicity. You may need lots of time today to go within and to just be with yourself and to avoid harsh situation. Enjoy and cherish your alone time.

The truth is that you have your own unique inadequacies or shortcomings and those are there for a reason. You came into this lifetime with a set of characteristics and your essence set up those to create conditions for something specific that it wanted to experience. For example, disability might mean less mobility, but it could also open up possibility for you to learn to ask for help rather than attempting to do everything by yourself. A very important theme to look at today is that of letting go of any and all judgements towards yourself.

So today situations may be coming up that may be encouraging you to stand up for yourself and walk in your truth. Maybe you are being pushed energetically and tested for how well you are established in your centre. Maybe you are tested for your ability to soften and be kind. The tendencies are all up now and up for review so you can take a really good look at where you can still grow and expand. Enjoy!

Some of the points to consider today:

  1. What/who am I done with and ready to let go of?
  2. What do I need to integrate more of: masculine or feminine?
  3. Can I speak my truth without holding back?
  4. Can I be fully present and authentic with the people in my life?
  5. Am I living my own dream or someone else’s?
  6. Do I trust myself?
  7. Am I being loving and kind towards myself?
  8. Can I embrace my shadow without trying to fix it?
  9. Am I being on my path?
