Taking Home Wherever You Go

Life is full of uncertainties. We find ourselves moving through different spheres of being whether we are trying to illicit change or not. The journey is always happening even when life feels static.

Because the motion of transformation occurs at such an imperceptible rate during your normal daily grind, unless you look back with purpose at how life was say a year ago, your fearful self doesn’t get spooked because the flow was slow and natural.

What about those times of sudden shift though?

The use of the word home in the title is no more about your street address than it is about your furniture, in fact moving house could be one of the sudden shifts I’m referring to, as could a birth, a death, a new relationship or the end of one to name but a few. No, the home I’m referring to is the sense of stability, confidence and inner well-being that life is ok no matter what chaos is happening externally.

Familiarity, is the key to feeling safe. When you find that part of you which remains constant through all your experiences, the unshakable, unbreakable essence of who you are, who you came here to share as a gift to the world, that’s when you understand that home is a state of mind wrapped up in a quantum field that you are incapable of ever leaving and that change is merely an update in the illusory theatrical scenery and actors in the story.

If the story didn’t evolve, we’d all stop playing. When it evolves at pace we all get jittery simply because we lose our place in the script and are forced to ad lib without warning, making the plot twists that bit more nail biting, edge of your seat, sometimes excruciating.

The truth is that home is within not without and that everything else, everyone else, is just temporary shelter.

Remember who you are. Principle 1: I AM God.

Saturday Oracle – When Questions Beget More Questions

The violet crown chakra holds the key to accessing your higher wisdom by allowing the light from your soul to fully enter and embody the physical. This chakra is so powerful that when fully activated, space, time and dimensions begin to merge as your human self is overlit by the purest part of you which is Divine. What happens though, when the very human part of you fights back and scoffs at the influx of new insight? That’s when questions beget more questions.

This week is set to be full of paradoxes created by your faith in your own ability to comprehend the bigger picture and will have you second guessing everything. Your higher self will be presenting you with signs and obvious clues as to which direction you should be going in, but your insecure ego will be asking stupid questions like “Did I just read that right?”

It’s almost impossible to sort out real guidance from wishful thinking this week and you’ll be looking for validation left, right and centre. Reading into the things people say, looking for hidden meanings, hidden agendas and nuances that might hold the key to what to do, will have you sending yourself half insane. Is there anything there other than what can be plainly seen?

I don’t have that answer for you but I can tell you this: The sum of your experience can only act as a guideline. If you don’t understand something, ask.

If the answers aren’t clear wait for more information.

Principle 3: I AM Human, is focused on your fallible side. Embrace it, then embrace it in others too. We are all just trying to comprehend the best we can. In a digital world where we can’t look into the eyes of the source of the information, we invariably only receive a small proportion of the actual message.

When the questions start leading to more questions and increase uncertainty beyond the norm; when you start pulling oracle card after oracle card trying to get a definitive answer on whatever your current dilemma might be, that’s when it’s time to stop all striving. Let go of the need to know completely and hand the entire situation over to God. Yes your ego will argue the toss, after all, your human self believes naively that it has some semblance of control here, even though it’s been proven over and over again that control is an illusion created by the psyche to lull you into a false sense of security. Security only comes when you release your grip on the need to know… and God will let you know on a need to know basis via whoever or whatever means seems appropriate at the time.

The run up to the Full Moon in Scorpio on Wednesday might bring you the clarity you seek but until then hold tight, things are about to get SURREAL!

The Joy Of Unleashing Your Inner Genius

I’ve had so much fun this week I can hardly contain myself! I took the role of the innocent fool in order to explore a new adventure that quite honestly scared me shitless… I had no idea what I was doing, I knew I would have to make myself visible and vulnerable and that for me, the idea of appearing to not have the first foggiest clue is a territory I dread, but I embraced my fear in order to evolve and discovered what it means to feel the joy of unleashing your inner genius.

Building my website has been excruciating at times. With no technical experience I’ve worked through trial and error, learning along the way. Building a membership site however… creating online training etc… Oh my. I took myself off last week to get some tech training and this week the final link fell into place when a friend pointed me toward a 10 day video challenge. OMG! Video? If you’re doing it online they wanna see your face… I’m on day 3 and I’m having a bloody ball!

Now your inner genius may have nothing to do with anything as mundane as creating your own videos and this insight isn’t about that, your inner genius though, whatever it is, lies just on the other side of fear, discomfort, uncertainty or in my case sheer terror.

I needed to get across that dark stretch of water because what I want to achieve and how I want serve is located on the opposite riverbank. I saw the opportunity, signed up, spent days wondering how I could back out without losing face, then took a deep breath and had a go. I had no idea that my fear was all about looking stupid in public and actually I’ve realised that looking stupid is actually one of my most endearing qualities… I’m having fun, and fun attracts more fun and more connection and encourages others to jump in and have a go too… and I’m all about encouraging others.

Genius doesn’t mean remaining static, it’s about growth and growth can be uncomfortable but that discomfort is short lived… especially if you rip the plaster off!

What do you want to do, be, learn or have?

Go on, rip the plaster off!

Birthday Special – Weighing Risks Against Feathers

This is by far my favourite day of the year. It’s my mum’s fault, growing up, she would always say to us “no one works on their birthday, nobody gets shouted at on their birthday.” So today in my family it’s not just a day celebrating 45 years of my being on this fast spinning rock we call planet Earth, it’s also my “get a free pass day.”

If you had a free pass what would you do?

If a risk was there to be taken would you take it?

I did an angelic visualisation with some of my students recently where we invited in Archangel Jeremiel and asked that he advise us on the issues and concerns we had within our lives, dilemmas if you like. He conjured up a set of golden scales and weighed each problem against a feather just as a soul might be weighed on entry into heaven.

What if we started weighing risks against feathers?

If the risk was worth taking we would know because it would weigh lighter than a feather, a 50/50 chance of success would balance perfectly and a guaranteed loss would weigh so heavy that the scales might buckle under the pressure.

A free pass of course doesn’t really work out in the world of men. Consequences are always in play and that’s why I hesitate to leap towards what has proven in the past to burn hotter than the 45 candles on my cake but I can say one thing, the buns have subsided, the scars are talismans I can use for protection and the risk I’ll be taking today is to wait with open arms, an open heart and an open mind… if God decides to deliver me the gift of a lifetime, birthday gift to top all but one (the fact that I’m here at all), then I’m ready meet it half way.

Today I’m the feather. Risking my heart again.

First Monday Challenge – Being Pregnant With Possibilities

Not only is it the first Monday of the month, it’s also May and that must mean it’s Beltane. Being pregnant with possibilities seems like an appropriate subject, May Day being a celebration of fertility and all that, but it’s also following on from the theme of the weekend’s oracle… turning worrying about problems to creating solutions.

Positivity takes practice. When you place focused intent, determination and gratitude at the forefront of your mental agenda you become a manifestation machine. The quantum do-da’s of the universe deem it can be no other way… you are that powerful.

So while we’re attempting a challenge lets up the ante and make it three.

1. Focus your mind and become a dream maker

2. Bolster your resolve with determined action

3. Gratefully acknowledge every blessing.

So what is focused intent? Do you ever say to yourself “I want that,” only to hear your thoughts say “That’s impossible, it’s never going to happen”? Well, that’s the opposite of focused intent. Your conscious mind is for the intended outcome but your subconscious mind, the bit running the outdated programme is running interference on the plan… you are creating from your fearful, wounded perspective an internal error or battle of wills.

Uninstalling the faulty app is not so easy when the device in question is your own psyche so you are going to have to learn to override the programme… that means being super vigilant for a time until it becomes automatic. When the negative mantra pipes up “who are you trying to kid?” You are going to have to make a statement to the little voice that’s heckling from the side lines: “I hear you my friend, and for a time I even believed you knew what you were talking about but here’s the thing, the only thing that stands between us and the goal is you, I’m done listening… that thing I want, its not just achievable, it actually wants me to have it, achieve it, conquer it. It’s routing for me so why aren’t you? So for now, if you shout, I’m gonna shout louder. If you say tom-ay-toe I’m going to yell tom-ar-toe and one thing’s for certain… we will not be calling the whole thing off!”

Determined action is about committing to the process and actually following through. It’s no good arguing with the heckler if you just sit there and do nothing, All those possibilities, all those roads that lead to Rome, (Rome being just an analogy for the goal you’ve chosen, obviously), adventures to be had down every one of them, basically means that it doesn’t matter which route you take as long as you don’t give up and turn back at the first sign of trouble, because that would be akin to admitting to your inner heckler “Okay buddy, you were right all along.” Not going to happen, this is a challenge remember?

Then there’s the biggy: gratitude.

Can you say thank you for the shitty stuff as well as the shiny stuff? All has purpose on the path you choose. Lessons come in countless forms and further down the road to your dream you will be able to look back and see the service that even the toughest excursion brought to you… patterns dancing in a perfect formation only truly visible from God’s eye view. If you detach from the drama just long enough to see the kaleidoscope of colour, you will know the true worth of every experience and gratitude will follow. To be grateful ahead of understanding takes real faith… and everyday it will be tested, but at the end of this leg of the journey…

You will transform from being pregnant with possibilities to giving birth to a miracle. Your miracle.

Go on, I challenge you to become a dream maker!

This challenge contains aspects of Principles 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 & 7! The 7 Principles of The Wholly Grail are free to read on the website.
