Experiencing An Internal Revolution

Everybody deals with emotional trauma in a different way. My immune system shuts down and become susceptible to illness… but it’s not my permanent or preferred place of residence.

I wanted to take this opportunity to guide you through healing from experiencing an internal revolution, that on the surface at least, can manifest as physical health issues.

Principle 6: I AM Self-Full is the way back to vitality whenever your health is compromised physically, emotionally or even spiritually and begins with a very basic premise: “me first.”

Untie all the commitments, promises, deadlines, self-imposed pressures and superfluous tasks and get busy with what’s really important… healing. Feeling better. Nurturing your mind, body and spirit on every level.

Start with rest, complete rest. It doesn’t mean you have to take to your bed, rest can be simply snuggling by the fire with a good book, relaxing in a bubble bath or such like. Next comes nourishment. Healing from the inside out means feeding your body healing foods, foods filled with life force that are fresh and pure. Don’t forget the life giving elixir that is clean water either, your vital organs need to detox from the flood of poisons that brought you to this state.

Now you must purify what is feeding your mind. The external world can be detrimental to the sensitive empath when your system is overloaded so now is the perfect opportunity to detox your information intake: If at all possible you should unplug from the digital hive mind altogether and instead read an uplifting book or two. Doing a digital detox can also be effective if you de-clutter your feeds and bookmarks, for example you might unsubscribe from anything and anyone that causes you more stress, unfollow and unfriend any negative influences and choose new ones whose inspiration supports your healing path.

Then you need to be honest with those around you. Principle 4: I AM Truth is a powerful reclamation of Self. Just by stating “this is where I am and this is what I need” can go a long way towards releasing what’s draining you… you don’t always have to be the one with the answers, you don’t have to be the glue that holds society together… doesn’t it already feel so much better knowing that the only thing that you have to fix right now is you?

And now stretch… Yoga, Pilates, something gentle. A walk (when you’re ready) and then breathe… reconnect with nature, even if it’s just pottering in the garden. And create, be it art, music, poetry, baking a masterpiece… maybe even a vision board of your most beautiful dream, we all need to express our creative inner muse, so do that too.

Whatever you need to do to come back to you, that’s your only job to survive the alchemical side effects of the revolution as you recuperate and prepare for the next leg of the quest. That’s where I’m at.

Saturday Oracle – The Beginning Of Wisdom

First let me say that this combination, though a little too frequent for my liking, is not in any way a surprise. When I turned over the cards of The Intuitive Chalice Oracle today they all but jumped out to greet me and here’s what notion immediately entered my mind…

On my short walk back home yesterday from the local supermarket, where I had been picking up some supplies for a workshop I’m running on Monday, I had what my mum would term “a funny turn.” Now you must understand that there is nothing in the least bit funny about feeling unwell at any time but halfway across a busy road through the middle of a woodland carrying heavy shopping bags is even less amusing… I stopped as soon as I reached the pavement, put down my shopping and focused all my attention on my breathing until I began to feel grounded again, quickly calling in my angelic helpers to “fly” me home safely… I don’t remember much more of the walk but I remember arriving at the front door and feeling relieved to have made it in one piece… my body isn’t happy and the oracle is suggesting that problem is rife among us this week.

It’s really cliche at New Year for us to be talking about resolutions and getting healthy and I was determined not to do it, (talk about it I mean), that was until I flipped this combination of Principle 6: I AM Self-Full and the blood red base chakra. Your body is about to start screaming for your attention if it hasn’t already, and right now is the time to listen.

Health issues are once again the focus as we step not just into a new week but into a brand new year. Evidently too much indulging combined with a recent cascade of shocks, both media and personal, have taken a toll and we are all in need of some self-imposed TLC. For me personally, I try to eat at home as much as possible where I can prepare fresh and healthy foods, but over the Christmas period I’ve been privileged to have been fed by some beautiful friends and family and in attempting to be a gracious guest, the result is my diet has included increased wheat and refined sugar, swamping my system with a whole load of stuff I’m sensitive too and its rebelling big time.

Be gentle with yourself if you are starting to feel overly tired, sluggish or unwell… any symptoms you are experiencing are the beginning of wisdom when it comes to your physical, mental and emotional health, assuming of course you listen and take steps towards purposeful healing.

Healthy choices might be a good idea as might a gentle detox, but do see a physician/GP if you aren’t sure. Let’s get ready for Happy & Healthy New Year! It’s not a resolution, it’s a gift to yourself.

Saturday Oracle – The Most Amazing Gift

The oracle selection this week surprised me because I didn’t see it coming or its relevance in my current experience but I was willing to explore its message to see where it was leading…

The combination of Principle 6: I AM Self-Full with the blood red of the base or root chakra is a deliberate health warning.

Being as I personally have just, a couple of weeks ago, come out of the other side of some sticky virus or other and many of my friends, family, colleagues and clients have survived the same, when this combo arrived I was at first concerned that we were all in for a bout of something else until I heard the words “prevention is better than cure” infiltrate the back of my mind…

We have entered into the final week before Christmas and of course that means we are in full on mental mode: “must do this, must get that, must go there, forgot that, what about so and so?” In amongst all that mind clutter you seem to be forgetting something vital…. YOU!

When the base chakra shows up for healing its time to get grounded, eat well, ¬†regulate your sleep patterns, hydrate and exercise… yes I said exercise (I don’t mean how much Christmas shopping you can carry in one trip). Fresh air, long walk, gentle yoga, etc should do the trick. Treat yourself to a fabulous bubble bath and some pamper time followed by a meditation about all the things your already grateful for and watch Christmas transform into something extra special.

With all the parties going on this time of year, try not to put your body under too much strain by drowning it with toxins and late nights… you don’t need to wait until New Year to make healthy choices, today is a good day to cherish the most amazing gift you could ever be given: good health.

Have a good week and take care of you…

Saturday Oracle – Divergent Path

Grail Oracle 6Grail Oracle Orange

This week’s oracle comes with a warning.

I pulled a combination for myself yesterday as I occasionally do for guidance but then imagine my surprise when the exact same cards came out for the group reading today.

Stress is a killer. At the very least it can make you very ill, very unhappy and steal your zest for life… I’ve worked with many people over the years and one thing that has become apparent to me is that nobody burns out doing what they love.

Whenever Principle 6: I AM Self-Full turns up in a reading it is asking you to consider your own needs: physical, emotional and spiritual, and it is asking you to be mindful of your true life path. Combine it with the vibrant orange of the sacral chakra and the warning that ignoring  your innermost requirements is draining your vitality, putting unnecessary stress on your adrenals and pushing you towards your own case of fatigue, whether that be full on physical shutdown, or a serious bout of depression.

You were sent here with a mission. You might think you don’t know what that is yet and that’s ok as long as you remember that your mission is in alignment with your skills, your joys and your passions… God didn’t send you ill equipped to fulfil your destiny, he stocked you full of urges and abilities as guidance… sure you have to learn new stuff to get there but being passionate about learning is one of those urges too. The point is that many of us drift through life doing what we’re made to do, what we feel obliged to do and often through these obligations we forget that we were given a voice and a choice…

Your soul has a plan for you and this week your mind, body and spirit are railing against the fact that you have been consistently taking a divergent path.

If you are exhausted, feeling low, run down, experiencing minor illness or suffering any form of stress then this is the week to assess where you are out of alignment with your divine plan and make radical adjustments to your life. Eat well, sleep well, remove yourself from toxic environments, people and situations, tie up loose ends that are draining your energy and resources, de-clutter your home and work space and begin an inventory of what bits of your life bring you joy and peace and which bits bring stress and discord…

Most of all, go back to your innermost hopes, wishes and dreams and ask if you are neglecting them or casting them aside for some reason.

Call upon the angels and meditate… your health is your ticket to joy, your emotions are your map, your spirit carries the keys but only your soul knows that X marks the spot… start listening.

The Tunnel

Grail Oracle 7Grail Oracle Red

I have to admit I’ve struggled with today’s oracle combination because both it’s positive and negative attributes are at play in my own life at present, this being the case, I’m going to present to you with a neutral choice which could lead to either or…

Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted meets the blood red root or base chakra in “The Tunnel” and with it comes all manner of manifestations… The question here is what do you want manifest?

Having an open heart requires a massive amount of faith and courage because it entails allowing control to shift as you let go of all strings knowing that whatever the outcome, your needs will be met. Check out the picture above, it shows magnified red blood cells that carry oxygen and resources around the body… now imagine if you will that your physical heart was blocked or closed off to these cells, what would happen? It doesn’t bear thinking about really does it? Energetically speaking when the grounding red energy of material flow is unable to be received and then released by a closed heart chakra life stops. I’m not necessarily talking about the physical death that the first instance would involve here though, I’m talking about an economic, material, social and emotional death.

It sounds appalling doesn’t it? And there I was promising you a neutral choice… Okay well let’s look at the alternative: an open heart and a positive flow of red energy elicits, physical vitality, abundant material provision, the removal of obstacles to achieving your dreams… do you like that idea better?

So given that The Tunnel is ahead of you this week, are you going to enter with absolute faith, giving up the need to know how you’re going to make it through, trusting God to provide everything you need and pull you out the other side, or are you going to grip the sides attempting to control the flow, jamming up the tunnel with everything that went before, all the baggage and fear that you’ve dragged with you?

You have the opportunity to witness a miracle manifesting this week… or you have an opportunity to stop one in its tracks… The choice is neutral, the outcome however…
