Rewite Your Story From Powerless to Powerful

Do you keep telling the same story of your “lot in life” that just isn’t serving you? I feel you, I really do. I’ve got lots of ways of describing myself, what I’m capable of and what I’m not, how my life is and how it always has been. It’s time to get super-conscious and rewrite your story from powerless to powerful so you can finally step into the life you want to live rather than assuming that is what other people do.

The last few days and even week’s have been difficult for many, but those who choose to use the time to their advantage might find it truly transformative. I personally feel this is a potent opportunity if you know where to focus your attention. I was lucky enough to have the angels show me exactly where to focus whilst I was being really Self-Full, indulging in a spot of meditation.

Let me tell you about my meditation…

I entered a room where Archangel Michael and Archangel Gabriel were waiting to greet me. In this room were four chairs. Now these weren’t just any chairs, they were big plush wing-back leather chairs in fire engine red. They were facing each other and each had a glass and chrome side table with a glass and jug of water. These were the chairs the panel of experts sit in at a symposium, or the judges on The Voice!

Because they were all facing each other, I knew it wasn’t about being judged so I assumed the former. Michael motioned me to sit down and I realised I was one of the experts! Me! But as I sat (and sat a while longer) I realised nobody else was coming and that the other chairs were still empty. Four chairs but I only chose one…

As far as the angels were concerned there were 3 other areas of my life that I believed I had no control over because I kept telling myself that I knew nothing about those things. The message was clear, I need to become the expert in all areas of my own life if I’m going to live it the way I want to. And, I’m going to have to start telling the story that way too.

One of the key areas that I’ve had a story of powerlessness around for that last few years is money. I’ve been telling myself for years that I’m not good with it and I don’t really know what to do with it. I remember back to working in the leisure industry, I used to tell my boss I would run her any department she asked, but if she put me in charge of finance I would bakrupt her inside a week! I’m still telling that same old bullshit story now and the universe is done listening to it… (enter angelic intervention stage left). One of my big red chairs was for the “expert on personal finance” because until we learn how to steward a resource, the universe cannot bring it to you.

The moment I understood the lesson I began learning everything I could about stewarding personal resources including my money, time, energy, etc. I am already willing to accept the expert label in my role as Soul-Life Alignment Specialist & Grail Guide (spirtiual teacher to the layman), but that’s only one chair. I’m not willing to identify with the old paradigm anymore. I’m rewriting my own story from powerless to powerful! If any of this resonates or sounds like you, you need to get educated in the areas you feel you have no control over.

You might be wondering what this has to do with The Grail Path? When you rewrite your story from powerless to powerful, from incompetent or victim to expert, you automatically begin to align with a new frequency that attracts the manifestations that match your description. The Grail isn’t an airy fairy spiritual concept that has no baring on your day to day reality, it is the blueprint for consciously creating your reality as heaven on earth. Both Principes 5 & 6 are about stewarding resources and Principle 1 is all about how we identify with our own worth.

(I will also be introducing The 4 Pillars of The Grail shortly, they will break down the connection between spirit and matter for you even further. Look out for that here on the website in the next few weeks).

Money is energy… and I for one am open to receiving an abundance of it and every other form of high vibe energy into my life.

So, what I really want to know is:

  • What story have you been telling yourself that isn’t working for you?
  • Which of your expert chairs are you going to learn to fill next?
  • What action are you taking to fill your learning gap in that area?
  • What would you like the new story to sound like?
  • And… how can I help?

Let me know in the comments below.

For now though, I’m wishing you a productive and powerful week ahead.

The Truth About Power And Magic

If you aspire to be the director of your own story and master of your own Grail, then first you must understand some fundamentals about the nature of the universe and the truth about power and magic.

The Wholly Grail is an empowerment tool, a set of 7 Principles that set your soul free from the chain’s that enslave you when you do not realise that you have a choice. Those Principles work in harmony with the laws of the universe in order that you can begin to create real magic and have real power over your own life.

I’ve been disturbed recently by an influx of new potential clients that have sought me out to heal them from the effects of dark magic and curse energy. I want to clarify a few things…

Yes, there are more things in heaven and earth than we are currently aware of, but what we do know is this: everything is energy.

When we use dramatic terms like ‘dark magic’ which is just another way of saying negativity, we give it so much power over us by adding to the mystery and psychology of it. Darkness feeds on fear, why then would you feed into that fear by giving it credence or a cool name?

I could quite easily have taken their money and scared them shitless in the same way that some unscrupulous fearmonger has already done before me, by filing them full of ideas about how dark energies surround them and that they are cursed (wooooooo)… The curse they suffer is disempowerment and the inability to recognise they have a choice to turn back towards love and Source energy and away from fear.

The way to fight darkness is to bring it into the light and the only way to do that in your own life is to be the light and to become the beacon for others to follow suit. Sure you need to protect yourself from negativity, sure you need to cleanse your energy and your environment, yes you need to cut energetic cords and sever connections from people, places, objects and energies that deplete your joy and yes, that takes discernment, courage, will and discipline… but at the end of the day the greatest universal law is the law of attraction… like attracts like, darkness cannot touch you if you are the light. The fact is, if you are the light the darkness will not even realise you exist because you are vibrating so much higher than it is.

I could have spread the darkness by telling those who were afraid that they needed me to save them, instead I gave them the tools to save themselves. I sent them away to learn Principle 1… I’ll be here once they embrace it fully and want to learn how to use it to transform all the effects of their previous forgetfulness of who they are and what they represent here on earth.

(In the meantime… did I really just turn away clients? Damn my bloody scruples)!

If you would like to understand the truth about power and magic, check out the The Wholly Grail and it’s 7 Principles for free… then call me (and we’ll set something up).

Saturday Oracle – Grateful For Your Input

This week’s combination feels positively amazing as Principle 4: I AM Truth meets the violet crown chakra.

Over the last few weeks you may have noticed a shift in your own energy as you have finally recognised within you that which you thought had been lost. Flow has returned, as has a sense of drive as you have tapped into your connection to Source and activated the next stage of your soul’s mission.

Higher purpose is now infusing you with a lightness of spirit and you once again feel excited about the possibilities for your life and how you may be of service to others… but there is a catch…

This is a week where your truth: that which is not only intellectually and logically in line with your purpose but also energetically, so much so that you feel awake and alive and excited to get stuck in, is likely to be subject to and the subject of the overt opinions of others.

Principle 4 is not only about connecting with your own truth, it is about understanding how the truths of others can have an influence on you and your life. This influence may be positive or negative or be completely neutral but the combination in this oracle is suggesting that whatever it is, you are required to believe in yourself and not surrender your power to louder voices or apparently stronger forces.

That level of internal knowing that is fuelling your renewed excitement and happy buzz is enough to remind you that you do not need recognition or validation and that the wellspring of inspiration that is bubbling up inside you (whether it is criticized, poo-poo’d, borrowed or stolen) is all the evidence you need to remind you that you hold the power, you always have, you always will.

This is a week to acknowledge the projections and protestations of others without needing to engage or react, simply respond with: “I’m grateful for your input,” and carry on with your mission and the sense of purpose that is obviously already yielding results in the way you feel and in the shifting circumstances around you.

You’ve found what you were looking for, only you can lose sight of it again by being distracted by those who are not really in the know and don’t need to be either, so don’t feel you need to explain, clarify or justify where you are or which way you are heading. This is yours.

Here’s to an amazing week ahead… x

Something For The Weekend – Making Healthier Choices

Previous results can often influence future decisions. It is possible to lose confidence in your own ability to choose for your highest good if you consider yourself to have been marred by past mistakes. It’s perfectly understandable that you would have pause for thought in such circumstances but overthinking can render decision making impossible. So how can you ensure you are making healthier choices?

A bit of a perspective reshuffle might be in order at this stage before we go further…

Whatever the past mistakes, experience was born of them… as was resolve and flexibility and a knack for survival, so even if the outcome you intended did not come to pass, something even more valuable was reaped from the journey you took. Taking that into account and then applying Principle 3: I AM Human (and shit happens),  you can let go of the need for controlling the outcome and instead make decisions based on their potential for adventure rather than their guarantee of a specific destination.

Start by defining your success by the experience you  harnessed from the ride, from the people you encountered and connections you made, from the ingenuity you dug from deep within to navigate the obstacles and rapids along the way, your success is so much deeper and so much broader than the outcome and besides, your small self cannot possibly get your mind around the bigger picture that Source has planned and what role your success or perceived failure plays in its orchestration.

When you make your choice, whatever it is, remember that you can make another choice a few steps down the road when evidence starts to show up of how the first one is working out. Life is constantly giving you nudges to adjust your sails so one wrong move doesn’t have to be the end of the world… (and I suspect if it was, a new world would be born from the debris).

You will always know where you are and what adjustments need to be made by:

  • Your dominant thought patterns
  • How you feel emotionally
  • Your physical health
  • Your energy levels
  • External manifestations

To make healthier choices you can take the list above and then do a quick run down of the 7 Principles to come at the choice from a different angle…

  1. Am I aware of my power in this moment?
  2. Am I fully present with what is?
  3. Am I being influenced by my perceived mistakes?
  4. What is really true for me?
  5. How free do I feel in this moment?
  6. What are my immediate and long term needs?
  7. Am I allowing and accepting of change?

All of these triggers are meant to recalibrate you back to the centre of your own sovereignty and empowerment.

Let me know how you get on.

Monday Mind Manoeuvre – Remember Who You Are

I will finish the last two parts of the Modus Operandi series a little later but something came up that I thought important enough and wanted to explore, it’s to do with losing yourself in a relationship and how to remember who you are.

Now before I go any further I should mention that I have a someone special and he tends to read all my posts (and then deny it) so on that note I want to say this is nothing to do with he and I (lest he panic that we have an problem) and simply about the plethora of counselling I’ve been doing in the last few days in every direction as well as observing among the masses on social media etcetera.

Now let me first get you into Wholly Grail territory by reintroducing Principle 1: I AM God, along with Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted. Theses two Principles are the basis of relating from an empowered state.

What you observe in your outer world is a reflection of how you feel in your inner world. Your outer world often affects how you feel… catch 22 you might think, but here’s the thing: how you feel is a result of what you think about what you perceive, so then it stands to reason that if you choose different thoughts the feelings will alter which will in turn transform what we observe.

That sounds complicated but truly when you remember nothing is personal even when it is aimed at you, it is just a projection of the thoughts and feelings of another that you receive according to your state of inner peace and empowerment. If you are feeling like a victim then everything will seem to be an attack, if you are feeling like a hero everything will appear to be an opportunity for learning and healing even if the outer circumstances are identical in each case.

Principle 1 asks that you see yourself as a spark of divinity and that you see that same light in everybody else regardless of the outer conditions.

Principle 7 asks that you let go of all attachments in order that healing may occur. This doesn’t mean walking away from relationships that are nurturing and mutually beneficial  most of the time, it means letting go of the fear that they might end. All things end, the question is, do you want to squeeze the life out of it quickly by gripping, manipulating and controlling or do you want to love and laugh and learn your way until death do you part?… That’s what it means: death simply means an ending, any ending.

Drop the victim stance by recognising you hold all the power… over yourself and what you choose to place your attention on. If you contrive to fix, change or manipulate the significant other in your partnership to see, do or be what you want then you are trying to exert your power over another and the battle will commence or the rift will widen… let them be who they are, even if they are currently in victim mode, don’t ever be tempted to meet them at the bottom, instead lift them with your example of understanding, compassion and gently hold the space for them to step out of their shadow and into the light where you will be waiting with open arms and an open heart… and maybe next time you slide down the scale and forget who you are they will do you the same courtesy.

Wishing you beautiful nurturing relationships today and always.

Big love until later… x

For The Weekend – Learning The Art Of Forgiveness

I’ve travelled to hell and back over the course of this week. It was a most illuminating journey. Taking a small group through a higher ascension training last Sunday, I was allowed by spirit to see for the first time how many of the 7 gates I’d passed through (9 in some teachings), on the way to my own personal hell. And then shown how easily I could climb through the golden gates in the other direction by learning the art of forgiveness.

Principle 3: I AM Human, is the way home to redemption.

This is not a biblical dissemination of sinful behaviour, on the contrary, it’s about the pieces of ourselves that we trade for our vision of what will fill the emptiness we feel when disconnected from our own higher power. The gates include self-transgressions like loss of self-respect, self-worth, humiliation, degradation etc. and we rarely see the outward effects when we are mesmerized by the end goal… that thing that we want, in effect would never lead us into compromising our own integrity if it was ever actually worth having.

The first gate on the way to redemption is acceptance. Also the first step on the way to forgiveness. Acceptance is a state of surrender to what is… it’s the end of the slippery slope. Here you stop struggling and look into the mirror of your life, which is reflected in your surroundings and tangible so-called reality, but you take a look with humility and reverence. I say humility because you must claim ultimate responsibility, and reverence because although you may not enjoy what you see, the awesome power it took to build this reality is a power that flows through you… you have God within you and you can use it to create miracles too.

Now comes the hard part: turn your face to the heavens and away from what was leading you into hell. You may have been stripped naked little by little at every gate you passed through but God created you naked and as you realise that is where you are heading once again, He can wash you clean.

That did end up sounding quite biblical didn’t it?

Let me put it another way… you were born naked, screaming, shitting, pissing and puking and the world looked on and said “Ahhh how beautiful.” Consider this moment, no matter how much crap you appear to be covered in, to be another crack at the great game. Acceptance will lead you to responsibility, responsibility will guide you back to empowerment, empowerment to empathy, empathy to forgiveness and forgiveness will lead to liberation and to love.

Forgive yourself first, forgive those who opened the gates, forgive those who attempted to strip you naked and sully your innocent soul, forgive those who watched you fall, forgive those who laughed at your pain and then finally smile gently with compassion as you watch and wait for them to come to a place of acceptance that in order to open the gates they too had to be standing knee deep in the shit.

Help them out when they ask. That’s what the gates of heaven demand.

This weekend, ask yourself how many gates you’ve passed through? Meditate with the Sumarian Goddess Ishtar, she will help you do a fearless assessment of what you blindly gave up for your goal.

Knowing When To Let Life Happen

Emotion and personal conviction often compel us to act, sometimes on instinct, without thought or care for the potential consequences. That becomes more profound when survival is at the heart of the action required, be it our own or that of someone you either love or feel particularly protective of such as an infant, the infirm, or elderly.

Being able to stand back and understand the bigger picture is a real skill when such a compulsion takes over.

Why would you want to stand back in such circumstances?

Taking a moment to think about how your behaviour will impact someone else’s life and giving your higher perspective time to override your ego is never going to be easy in a drama-rich event but unless it’s life or death, and I mean that literally, you could actually be doing more harm than good by interfering.

Knowing when to let life happen can often be the most empowering thing you can do for another human being. It allows them to reach outside their own comfort zone and achieve new heights in their own evolution… like when a child first falls off a bike. They get hurt sure, it’s heart-wrenching, yep, but they also have a new found understanding of how not to do it and they learn the most important lesson of all… how to fail.

Failure is the first step towards humility in success and the first taste of the contrast it will take to truly savour a victory and celebrate every minor achievement in their road to becoming who they were always meant to be. So ask yourself this question: “Will you jumping in to help actually slow down their progress with the bigger picture?”

The same power that exists in you, exists in them too. It may be at different stage of evolution but then you had to learn didn’t you? You got knocked on your arse, didn’t you?

We think karma is a form of punishment, but the truth is its one of the biggest blessings that the universe offers… like riding a bike, it’s about learning to find your balance.

A Gently Pointing Wing

Archangel Azrael, my guardian, guide and friend, spoke plainly to me yesterday as I did my morning meditation: “I stand and watch you each day. Sometimes I whisper guidance, occasionally I catch you when you fall, but mostly I just watch you. What would you have me watch you do today?” I thought about it for a moment and then reeled off the basic tasks I had to complete during the day as he listened patiently… nothing exciting in the list but then I hadn’t planned anything other than dealing with loose ends and daily stuff. His response was just enough though, to propel me into a completely different mindset and send me off in an unexpected direction via a gently pointing wing…

All he said was: “It takes just one decision to live your best life.”

Now I don’t know about you but when the Angel of Death turns up and basically tells you he’s bored of watching your everyday merry-go-round, I’m going to take notice and re-evaluate what step I take next!

The angelic realm are witness to our hopes,  our dreams, our efforts, actions and failings and they must stand by until we ask for help (or until we are in danger of buggering up the Divine Plan). They don’t judge and they don’t scold if you take an imagined wrong turn but they do feel complete compassion when you choose to berate yourself for missing the mark or for not living up to a standard that you set for yourself… probably based on someone else’s achievements.

Azrael didn’t tell me he was bored, he told me I held the power to achieve my own dreams… I could have been offended if my ego had responded but I’ve had him around for so long that I knew he was encouraging me to simply change one thing and be blessed.

Principle 3: I AM Human, and sometimes I need a little help from the angels.

How do you respond to divine guidance?

A Warrior’s Determination

Blame is the most disempowering action I can think of in this quest for personal peace. Taking responsibility for one’s own choices, even the perceived mistakes, (of which there are actually none in reality), affords you the luxury of reclaiming those parts of yourself that you left scattered along the way and re-integrating the energy they hold.

Blame is usually the product of two areas of The Wholly Grail: one hidden mechanic and the other one of the Principles. When you step out into the world wearing your shiny knight’s armour you can look the part very easily but it’s what’s under that armour that determines the noble character of the knight. If however the “victim” archetype lurks beneath on the Grail Knight’s chain mail then taking responsibility is the last thing on his or her mind. The victim feeds on blame.

Principle 3: I AM Human is the section of the Grail that deals with the concept of forgiveness. When we blame others for what happens to us we hold them to a higher standard than ourselves and we undo the balance of power in their favour. Now, as children, adults would be responsible for our care, thereby having power over us, but as adults we ultimately have the ability to choose for ourselves.

Please don’t misunderstand me, being the victim of another’s abuse of power is not the same as adopting a victim mentality. The former, when taking on the hero’s stance, can overcome whatever bad things have happened to them with grace and a warrior’s determination but the latter will be crippled by the most simple obstacle by spinning into a disintegrating cycle of “why does this always happen to me?”

Forgiveness comes in many forms but it’s the one sure way to let go of the past and create a new heading based on emotional freedom… it’s about how much baggage you’re willing to take on this journey.

Who can you forgive today and how much excess can you put down?

Come To This Crossroads

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. The next step I take, though not the first step, for I have journeyed all my life to come to this crossroads, will be a step born of love and a step into surrender…

Until now I always seem to have been moving towards something, someone, somewhere, a destination that holds no guarantees, but in the last few days along the last few steps, steps that have slowed with each foot I put forward as if the quality of the ground beneath me was whispering gently to me “not this way” and I had only just, for the first time in a long time managed to understand that those whispers were not about how I should walk, which shoes I should wear, how long or how fast my stride was… but just a simple instruction that the road ahead was not the road for me. That perhaps the destination itself was right where I am, right who I am and right now?

The road I’ve been walking has been painful to tread. Some days I didn’t know if I could walk another step, some days the very ground beneath my feet fell away and some days it reared up to challenge me: to slap me down and break me. I never gave up the path because I believed it led somewhere, to something important but the path is endless, it comes without reward and without respite until you understand that the journey itself is the reward, and the respite is the series of moments along the path where you stop to smell the flowers, where you share the path with companions and the laughter sparks a series of unprecedented miracles of consciousness. But the road has ultimately been a road I’ve walked alone and it led me here…

The next step I take will be my first one without chains. I am striving no longer to become but am instead letting go in order to be.

I may let go of old ideas. It’s ok.

I may let go of old practices. It’s ok.

I may let go of old goals. It’s ok.

I may let go of old behaviours. It’s ok.

I may let go of you. It’s ok.

In order to walk a path that doesn’t yet exist, to blaze a new trail of discovery, I can carry only what is mine… and the ground beneath my feet has not yet learned how to whisper “this way” or “that way” and that’s ok because the whisper from my soul grows louder by the moment and that message is clear: “My darling you already are.”

The path I choose is not the path of pain, it is not the path of despair, it is not the path of fools… I choose the path of petals.

The Path of Petals is my new ascension training course for self discovery and self-mastery that I will be delivering starting this March for anyone who is interested in joining and who lives locally to Sheffield UK. More details will be available soon and an online version will follow.
