You Will Never Get It Done

Are you, like me, one of those people that doesn’t have a set schedule? If you are then chances are you’re still pre-programmed with the need to get things done. The only problem being that because nobody stipulates your day off, you forget to give yourself one. There is always stuff to do and you will never get it done. Spiritual development or soul work is just the same. You will never get it done.

Yesterday was a Bank Holiday here in the UK and I was all set to do a days work, get all my blogs and newsletters done, edit my weekly YouTube videos (and work on the membership programme, record the meditation videos for my forgiveness course, work on my book, sort the content for this week’s online class…. you get the idea) when I found a single piece of fascinating information hidden amongst some other old junk in a cupboard. It set me on a trail of discovering the next layer of my own spiritual journey and my bank holiday work schedule became a distant memory. Synchronicity and the universe had another plan for me.

What I found was a Kabbalistic Angelic Astrology Calculator amongst some books that were residual stock from my shop. That was back in 2009, so effectively I’ve had this item for 11 years still in it’s packaging. Only now, after I’ve spent the last year working with Kabbalah in my own development had it become relevant to me… I could literally hear the angels screaming “Do not discard! Open it.”

Several hours and much research later, I was astounded to find that the exact lessons that I had been living out over the last decade of my life and actually effectively for most of my adult life, were written in black and white in front of me. If only I had opened it back in my shop in 2009.

The truth is, if I’d opened it then I wouldn’t have understood a word. None of it would have resonated and I would have filed it in the back of mind under interesting but useless. Today though, this information is a valdation of my mission and my reason for incarnating in this lifetime. I had to live out the last decade blind in order to see.

This journey is meant to unfold in Divine timing and moreover, it’s meant to keep unfolding lifetime after lifetime. Once you understand that you will never get it done, you can begin to ease up on yourself and relax about the next bit. I know that the universe and the angels are going to get me where I am supposed to be, to do what I’m supposed to do and greet who I’m supposed to meet at exactly the right moment for my highest good and everyone else’s, I just have to follow the guidance I’m offered in the form of inspiration, urges and fascination.

I’m supposed to be in a constant state of Principle 2: I AM Detached, focused and present with what is. That is where The Grail is and that is where the magic happens. Imagine if I had written this blog yesterday… it would be a different blog and I wouldn’t have made a massive, magical discovery about my own purpose and renewed my passion for following my path.

Now imagine what you might discover if you get present with what is fascinating you right now.

Flowing Into Purpose & Learning To Love

Exactly what does that mean: flowing into purpose & learning to love? That’s what I’ve been contemplating this week, how do I make a smooth transition into the role Spirit has asked me to fill and will the timing ever be perfect to just do it?

The fact is, every time I have shifted into a new version or upgraded way of presenting to the world, there has been absolutely nothing smooth about it and the timing has always been exactly when the universe deemed fit. Definite stop. Definite start.

Those instances show up in your life as “Tower” moments like jobs ending or redundancy; the loss of loved ones; relationships or marriages that suddenly end in divorce and so on, but what if there is no tower moment just an overwhelming need to step into a higher purpose?

According the Archangel Chamuel I’ve been training for this for lifetimes. Having just recently turned a significant corner in healing from the last lesson in self-love, Spirit are calling me to apply that, now crystalised wisdom, by narrowing my expanded understanding of The Grail to help a very specific type of woman…

Are you that woman? The one who repeats the pattern of giving her all to the kind of relationship that will never return the intensity of her love? Are you the one who commits to the guy who only puts her on the list when he’s at a loose end? Are you the one who forgot she was the powerful creator of her own destiny because she was selfless enough to help him build his?

Perhaps you are looking for love in all the wrong places, finding yourself drawn into non-reciprocal (one-sided) connections with emotionally unavailable people, sometimes even abusive and narcissistic partnerships, where you begin to lose your sense of self as your world begins to collapse around you and your very grip on reality is brought into question? If you are that woman, you are not alone.

Learning to love yourself enough to break free of this pattern has been a life’s work for me and I’m told, it is the primary focus for the continuation of the work I will be doing with the Grail.

There’s an issue with that, it means I’m going to have to tell some stories I’m not proud of. It means I’m going to have expose the soft underbelly and some still very raw lessons in order to guide you through how the Grail taught me to love fully and without conditions. And it means I’m going to have to

  • Honour my divinity
  • Be fully present (even with discomfort)
  • Show you how forgiveness changes everything
  • Allow my truth to shine through
  • Give up whatever I’m protecting
  • Share the healing process
  • Let love flow through me to each of you.

Make no mistake, this is no mean feat that I’ve been asked to do… but I know it will be the most significant transition I have made yet.

If you are one of the brave women who fit into the catagory that I described, whether currently partnered or single, and you would like to heal your love patterns and learn what Self-Full Loving looks and feels like, I’d really like to hear from you because I want to tell you more is possible for you… more love than you can imagine… and 2020 will be the year I show you the way.

You will need to be:

  • Ready to embrace your power
  • Willing to look at what is, by accepting what has been
  • Open to taking responsibility for your choices
  • Ready to tell a new story
  • Open to letting go of attachments
  • Determined to heal yourself and put your well-being first
  • Ready to embrace real love with an open heart.

Contact me here if you would like to know more about flowing into purpose & learning to love.

Love is coming your way sister, it is possible and you are worth it.

Finding Balance When The World Keeps Spinning

I have to admit there is more than just a little irony in this article because I’m finding balance when the world keeps spinning figuratively, literally and perceivably.

I relaunched the blog last week along with a new Facebook group for women, a new email list, several different video offerings including exclusive Grail content and the return of my YouTube Dragon Readings, which I adore doing so much. So to all intents and purposes, the world really speeded up for me after I had taken quite a significant amount of time out to explore my direction, whilst also managing my own emotional healing journey and looking after my elderly mum who has been in and out of hospital for over a year now.

I got to contemplating how the world just keeps on spinning no matter what we go through, not because it just came to me in a flash, but because in the midst of this (though I’d like to call it a finely honed and precision relaunch), in reality, chaotic and frenzied return to my Grail work, I seem to have developed a rather queer inner ear imbalance that causes everything to look like it is spining.

I remember this feeling from years ago when I used to enjoy alcohol. You know that awful sensation you get when you’re pissed out of your face and you lie down, then the room starts pretending to be the waltzer at the fairground… and there’s you, clinging on for dear life in case you go flying off the end of the bed?

Yeah, that feeling!

Well, that’s me at the moment, minus the alcohol.

Inner ear infection? Maybe. Virus? Possibly. The onset of vertigo? Potentially… whatever it is, it’s timing couldn’t be more inconvenient or it’s message more poignant: something is out of balance.

If I also take into account my physical reaction to the imbalance, it gives a clue to what I might be responding to energetically. I keep veering off sideways and falling over! A sideways move instead of moving forward?

Imbalance in our our lives occurs for all sorts of reasons and often when we think we are moving forward we are actually not really tackling the one thing that the universe wants us to face. In my case I have taken massive action to deal with all the peripheral stuff that supports my soul’s mission, but I have yet to actually tackle the main event. I’ve side-stepped the difficult bit in favour of the pretty trimmings and the universe has said: “Oi! do you think We can’t see what you’re doing?”

Finding balance, for me, is now having to come from multiple angles:

  • I’ve had to get really Self-Full.
  • I’ve had to stop and assess where I’m at.
  • I’ve had to say no to everything that isn’t “On Purpose.”
  • I’ve had to acknowledge where fear is leading me into denial.

When I listen to my own soul’s voice and really hear what it is asking me to heed, I automatically begin to unravel the difficulties I get myself into, and I do that by returning to the Grail time and time again… I ask myself if I can honestly say I am living the “I AM” statements that make up the 7 Principles and then I seek to understand if not, why not?

  • Do I really accept myself for who I am?
  • Am I fully present with what is or am I projecting?
  • Am I blaming myself or another for what is (or was)?
  • Am I being swayed by opinion rather than holding fast to my truth?
  • Am I holding on so tightly to what I have that I’ve become it’s captive?
  • Am I taking responsibility for caring for my own needs?
  • And am I somehow restricting the flow of abundance from the universe?

I can honestly say that there are more than a few on the list that are requiring another look for me and the most important step is remembering that every time we embark on a new leg of the journey, we are required to revisit the Grail.

The Grail is peace, balance, joy, fulfilment… and because the world keeps spinning, it keeps getting knocked over and requires that you reset it… that doesn’t mean it’s not fun, and I’m having lot’s of that at present trying to find the right formula for tackling the big things and the little things, at the core and the periphery…

I’m finding balance when the world keeps spinning!

Rediscovering Your Light – The Music In Me

This moment feels like an awakening, where many are opening up to the message within. The music in me has been activated at a level I have not experienced before and it feels like the dawn of a new age of light, following on from what I feel I want to refer to as my dark years.

The music in me was present at my birth and has simply been lying dormant, awaiting a time when Spirit decided to activate the next level.

The first recognisable activation was a total breakdown of my health in 2003, the second in 2008 when I quit my corporate job to work for spirit, the next occurred in 2012 when I began to unravel what I had built… at that precise time Spirit unlocked my understanding of The Grail… The Grail had always been my music but had now found a structure: a melody.

The dismantling has taken me 7 years, dark years. I don’t use the word dark to describe something bad or to be feared, but more to describe the time a seed spends in the fertile earth waiting to be awakened by spring. A remembering of love in the womb-like state before rebirth.

Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted, the focus of the Intuitive Chalice Oracle at the weekend, proposes the ingress of light that in turn flows out through each of us to be transmitted through our own unique melody like the in-breath and the out-breath of the universe… The dark years are your whole being inhaling.

Darkness seems to absorb light until it becomes so saturated that when it’s consumed enough, it shines.

Consider the flow then to be a slower process, the blink of an eye in universal terms but in terms of a human lifespan: the in-breath can take years… light years.

Now entering the light years, my music is shifting… The melody remains as it was but the key has changed.

Becoming a channel for Spirit requires that you trust the process, allowing for the dreamtime, the dark years where the music is reforming and maturing, where the light is reshaping the vessel and new understanding is carving away the shell of the seed. When the time is right there will be no question… no need to ask if the light has returned… it was always within you transforming you at a cellular level for the moment when Source calls to you to say: “Now exhale, child.”

The music is in you too. It exists as your own unique purpose, mission and at some point, passion. Trust that when the time is right, the world will hear you exhale.

If you would like help through the healing and reshaping of your dark years and understanding where you are on your Grail path, please do get in touch or book a transformative session.

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

Saturday Oracle – The Great Commission

When heart and mind come together something magical happens and synergy is created. As a New Year arrives this week, so too does fresh inspiration as a seed is planted and begins to grow, first within you, but as it gathers momentum, others gather to cooperate in the Great Commission.

Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted, is the initiation of flow, balance, sharing and unconditional giving and receiving. A two way valve that allows the coming and going of the universe without gripping or withholding. The heart knows when it is supposed to give and when it requires help to do so. When this Principle is an active vibration in your life, Divine Service becomes your powerful purpose… but this is not selfless giving, it is Self-Full. It’s very definition is that the act benefits the whole, including you.

When this combination of Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted joined with the deep indigo of the 3rd eye chakra appears, you can be sure that a great deal of thought or informal planning will be required before you can even begin to bring this new vision into manifest form.

This is a week where refining the vision is necessary before any action is taken.

The universe is poised to help you if you decide to transform the seed of inspiration into your life’s work, but understand that this is not for the faint of heart, it will take time, dedication, and skills that you have mustered along the way as well as some you have yet to learn.

Spend this week allowing yourself to daydream the vision into something so compelling that your heart is uplifted, set alight and filled with passion by its every detail. Don’t get bogged down in the messy questions like “how?” Let the universe bring those when Source wills it and the time is right.

If you would like to see how this new inspiration and much more besides might evolve over the year ahead, why not treat yourself to an Annual Angelic Forecast for 2018? Find out more here.

Wishing you a very Happy New Year…

Fighting With The Fear Of Freedom

Years ago, weary and jaded by the corporate grind, downtrodden by the internal politics of the all-too-familiar company dynamic, unable to affect real change for myself or my employees even as a senior manager, I decided that the only logical course of action open to me that didn’t mean me collapsing into another cycle of blind apathy was to quit.

Scary shit man! I mean, walking away from the stability of a decent salary at the height of a countrywide recession when you have a mortgage to pay and no clue what to do next…

That was beginning of my placing my full trust in the universe to guide me, the start of my spiritual adventure and the unification of my everyday material life with my soul’s direction for me. I’m not going to tell you I wasn’t terrified about being income-less and dependant on my then husband’s meagre wage, but the truth was that the moment I walked out of the front door of that multi-million pound personal prison, the relief I felt melted away all the fear of lack and was replaced by sheer determination.

My first task was to decide where life was going to take me next…

That’s the crux of this story… I had to decide.

Freedom is the scariest place on Earth if you have spent your life following someone else’s rules, policies, timetables, agendas… basically towing the company line. For the first time you stand there and go: what do I do? Which way do I go? God, what is my purpose?

You are so used to having your life mapped out that you panic and latch on to the first guru that seems to have got it all together, or the family member or friend that says “do this,” or “do that.”

That very voice that had you break out of the gilded cage though, will rise up within you and scream “You lead the way. We fought for the right to choose our own path now don’t give it away!”

But you’re so used to being told what to do… and now you’re fighting with the fear of freedom. The fear stems from deep within where you have yet to understand the power of responsibility, that place where you only have yourself to blame… and once you understand that blame is a redundant emotion wrapped up in judgement and self-criticism, you can swap it out for self-appreciation that regardless of whether you succeed or lose, you took the reins of the chariot and began blazing a trail of your own into the wilds of who knows where…

And when you ask God what your purpose is, He simply smiles knowing that He didn’t have to say a word for you to find it… to find you… to find freedom the moment you decided to choose for yourself.

If you are completely lost for a direction to choose then try this affirmation instead of letting someone else choose:

“God bring me a multitude of exciting opportunities today that I may sample, and choose for myself whichever brings me passion.”

Principle 1, 3, 4, 5 and 6 (that’s a whole lot of Principles!)

The Celestial Mapmaker

What gives you passion gives you purpose. Without purpose you will find yourself like a rudderless ship drifting on an endless sea.

Before GPS was invented and satellites were thrust up into orbit amongst the rest of the space junk that we’ve managed to lay to waste in heaven’s, we navigated by the stars. Those of us who still believe in destiny, that our lives are literally mapped out by those same celestial bodies, are navigating the seas of personal realisation just as those sailors once navigated the globe.

Being one of those believers, I’m almost certain that something much bigger than I, something with a plan I don’t have full access to, wrote amongst those stars a combination or constellation so powerful in its magnetic pull that I would have no choice but to follow the breadcrumbs laid out for me towards a convergence that only It could possibly predict.

Why else would the synchronicities I have stumbled upon have led me to this point?

God, Source, Allah, The Tao… whatever you choose to call The Celestial Mapmaker, seems to have a failsafe when it comes to this unfolding: when you’re off course, off mission, off purpose even, and the synchronicities are ignored in your attempt to assert your presumption of free will, your passion wanes. Basically put: if it’s not written in the stars you can’t get excited about it.

This is the same premise that attracts us to a mate. If you are incompatible or not meant to interact then there is no spark… Now don’t get me wrong here, passion can be positive or negative… you can dislike someone with a passion too, but in order for there to be an impact there has to be an attraction… The Law of Attraction! The moon has a magnetic pull that moves the oceans creating waves of passion that swell and recede… the ocean cannot react otherwise… it’s a failsafe written in the stars… The moon will rise, the oceans will heave. It’s all very romantic but it has a point:

The point being that if your not passionate about something then you’re off mission. That’s not to say that every detail will inspire you but your every action will lead you towards an outcome that if you only knew how miraculous it could be, if you had just enough faith and trust to lean into the fear of the unknown and surrender to the greater plan, the rewards could be beyond your wildest dreams.

You may not have access to the big picture in your human form but you have to understand that when you embrace all that you are: The Celestial Mapmaker is you. It was written in the stars because you put it there, and that passion you feel is a spark of The Divine within you remembering the time before time when The Mind of God drew the map and The Hand of God fashioned the heavens.

A Festival of Freedom – When Passion Returns

It’s easy to lose sight of the path when you get lost in the details.

After hitting a brick wall career-wise about 4 years ago and not really knowing which direction I wanted to go in, I set about analysing what caused me to crash into that wall in the first place. It was simple: I was so focused on the details of what I needed to achieve that I forgot what I loved doing and why I started doing it to begin with.

I stepped out of a personal and professional prison in 2008 to build myself a new one in 2009 until I unlocked the door and let myself out less than a year later and began to soar… then came the opportunity to expand and in the process I built myself yet another set of metaphorical walls that I did somersaults to maintain until the back end of 2012 when it almost broke me… 6 months after defining The Wholly Grail, my cup was empty and I knew it.

The process of stripping away the tendency to build walls has not been an easy one because along with it came the fear of building anything at all, so instead I subconsciously devised a little Cha cha cha that took me one step forward, two steps back, to the side, together, other side, together… begin again. My ego doing battle with my soul until I understood what it was I was truly trying to create… A Festival of Freedom!

I say a festival because what I truly want is to feel joyous, abundant, healthy, happy, fulfilled every single day. Life is supposed to be fun! But I was caught up in the details and what I needed to do to achieve them.

Today, I’m inspired by what happens when passion returns. What can be achieved when you embrace your true loves and inspirations, the things that make your soul sing. They never left, they were simply buried under a mountain of details and when you remember your gifts are deeply connected to your passions you come alive and the universe shows you the path again… the one without walls.

Four years of self-healing using the Grail makes me an expert and as an expert, I know how fragile it can be without vigilance and due diligence. Principle 2: I AM Detached is the way through the details and Principle 5: I AM Liberated dismantles the prisons. It’s my least mentioned Principle in written form because it’s my own greatest healing journey.

Due diligence means doing the work… if you would like to journey into Self and set yourself free with guidance from the expert then check out The Path of Petals training course here or book a Grail Consultation here.

Passionately yours

Essential Part of The Script

Life is a process. Unfolding with each step like an adventure story, with twists and turns taking you to who knows where, it develops by the moment from the very second you touch down here on the planet to the moment you leave and in fact beyond.

You may think you have plans, intentions, hopes, dreams and direction, all a part of the show to help drive you forward but in truth there is a much more elaborate show going on and your miniature role becomes apparent only when someone else’s slams up against it creating the main event… a bit like a small planet gently spinning through space minding its own business apart from being courteous by waving good morning to the other planets engaged in their very own orbits as they fly by… that is until some random meteor comes out of nowhere hurtling towards the gentle planet at breakneck speed and suddenly life goes from a serene routine to a scene out of the spoof disaster movie Airplane.

The more elaborate scheme going on is not subject to negotiation or reason and its Creator has no intention of explaining it to you, you’re simply expected to play your part.

You may believe that this narrative has you down as an insignificant pawn in a game you don’t understand but not so. You see, you are the most powerful player on the universal chess board, without you the narrative doesn’t work. Whether you are to win or to lose, to be the hero or the sacrificial lamb doesn’t change the fact that without your input, without you playing your role to the full, the next part of the unfolding story cannot go ahead… and the show must go on.

You affect everything within this Divine Matrix just by being a part of it. quantum physics shows that you affect it just by observing it… that’s how significant you are.

Just for today, observe every aspect of your existence, from reading this to doing your laundry to preparing your dinner as an essential part of the script… you have absolutely no idea which supposedly insignificant act will trigger the next part of the story right up until you exit stage left.

Principle 1: I AM God
