Modus Operandi Part 4: Essential Expression

The fourth part in the Modus Operandi series explores essential expression of one’s real feelings. Consider the alternative for a moment…

Under the exterior polish of every human being is a complex thought producing engine. Some of those thoughts are mediocre at best and pass by like fluffy clouds floating across a blue sky, others though are intense reaction provoking thoughts bringing inner storms and turbulent emotions.

It’s sometimes easy to let the storm blow over, to let it pass without incident, to weather it out so to speak, but when the thoughts stirring up those storm clouds are triggered by repetitive occurrence then action must be taken to address the real cause of the storm… sometimes the action is from within, in which case the essential expression might be the need to ask for help, sometimes however the trigger for these emotions is external and in this case essential expression means open and honest communication with the culprit, whether they be a deliberate antagonist or an unwitting one.

How many of you walk through life answering the “how are you?” question with “Fine thank you”?

Are you?

It’s not a trick question it’s an indication of your Modus Operandi… I know that many people who ask you how you are are doing do so rhetorically and have no genuine desire to know exactly how you feel, that’s their Modus Operandi. We adopt an “everything’s rhetorical” attitude to conversation in order to not make anyone feel uncomfortable as a result of this disinterested interaction compounded by the emoji culture that we have accepted, nay – embraced.

Real feelings stay hidden, the world becomes more trapped person by person, relating becomes more plastic encounter by encounter and connection becomes only possible when aided and numbed by varying degrees of substance abuse… and our minds and hearts become sicker and lives become perceivably less valued.

Principle 4: I AM Truth, is the Wholly Grail’s gateway to essential expression and conscious communication. It asks that you step into your authenticity and be your whole self regardless of the state of your evolution and understanding, regardless of the judgments of others. It asks that you allow every Soul you encounter to do the same without your judgment.

Being your whole self, expressing both the inner storms and the inner sunshine without censor, gives permission for all those you encounter to step into their authentic essence too, we begin again to connect on a deeper level, we allow understanding to guide us towards a Modus Operandi that is based in unconditional love.

What inner truths are buried within you that need essential expression?

Friday Confession – No Longer Hiding The Source Of All Light

Is Friday a good day for a confession? Well ready or not, here I come. The truth, as it is for me, cannot remain suppressed. I’m no longer hiding the source of all light.

I’ve previously been holding back on some of my posts simply to avoid upsetting someone. Knowing that my words can trigger insecurities in those with whom I have a close or karmic connection, and avoiding conflict as best I can by occasionally pussyfooting around issues that might be deemed contentious or taken personally, misread or deliberately twisted to mean something else…

How many of you do that? How many of you dim your light, lower your voice, stay hidden, just so you won’t rock a boat that you are actually being held to ransom in? (That’s a metaphor obviously).

Principle 2: I AM Detached is the part of the Grail that I find often trips up all who begin the journey consciously. At its core it refers to unhitching your attention from a specific outcome, whether that be a repeat of what’s gone before or a desired future destination doesn’t actually matter, when you specify how you want things to turn out you manipulate the path towards it.

By withholding a part of who you are, effectively dimming your sparkling essence, you are manipulating how people see you. Sometimes it’s to protect them from their own shortcomings but more accurately it’s to protect you, either from your own fear, or deeper than that, your fear that their shortcomings and therefore reactions to who you truly are might cause them to dislike you, ridicule you, argue with you, get angry at you or abandon you.

This is where Principle 4: I AM Truth kicks in. They have to do what they have to do. They will always act or react from their own truth however different from yours that may be. Once you have let go of your attachment to the outer goal though, their reaction no longer holds any sway over you. That’s not to say you want to deliberately hurt anyone or offend anyone. If causing harm is your intent then you’re reading the wrong blog. What it does mean though is that you no longer have to continue trading your comfort for someone else’s.

And now we arrive at Principle 3: I AM Human. The art of forgiveness begins with the recognition of a fragile being. That’s what an ego is, it’s a child in pain doing its best to protect itself from the world it perceives as a harsh environment in which it has to fight for it’s own place in existence. The ego, when it feels attacked, slighted or unheard, loses sight of the Soul parent to which its bound and has no concept of how to truly protect itself in a peaceful manner so then it must fight to stay alive, to take power away from its perceived threat… it has forgotten that it has access to the power of the universe through its Soul-Self and will therefore usurp the light from wherever it shines externally… The ego sees only through physical eyes and cannot observe anything through the eyes of the heart. You must love the child despite its attack on you, only love can save it, anger reinforces the cycle of fear.

You are the source of all light. God shines through you (each and every one of you), but His frequencies change and become unique with you as a filter. Not everyone will be attracted to your light frequency (your truth). Some will be repelled by it, others will attempt to reconcile the difference by changing their frequency to harmonise, whilst others still, will try to force yours to match theirs… but the rainbow of truth that is humanity, it’s diversity, is the whole truth. From God’s eye view the pattern is perfection.

Now, to those who love me but would have me fit their mould I say this…

When we arrive at Principle 7: I AM Open-Hearted, we will have adopted an attitude of balance where we can truly see the beauty in all the light frequencies that blend and dance in a constant exchange of give and take. We will begin to learn from each other instead of taking from each other, we will begin to cherish the exposure to a beautiful array of fresh new ideas that compliment and contrast causing co-creation and eventually a brand new truth, a blended truth that has a frequency all of its own, it has a name…

It’s called love.

Saturday Oracle – Vindication Of A Priestess

Intuition is a tricky business, especially when it comes to prophesy and destiny but this week what you have always known to be the truth will finally show signs of coming to pass.

Principle 4: I AM Truth, finds itself matched with the violet higher wisdom centre of the crown chakra in this week’s combination, heralding the uncovering of a loosely-cloaked secret which you have for some time, possibly even years, suspected.

Like the High Priestess in the tarot, this combination is promoting the intuitive side and even the defiance of logic and reason, meaning that your inner truth or a higher truth-as-yet-unrealised, that was long since given to you by spirit, perhaps by way of a dream or powerful inner guidance, the truth which you vehemently remained committed to even when all outward signs showed the contrary and all others lost faith in your vision and fell by the wayside, is about to be rewarded with evidence of blossoming.

This week is not about new intuition or psychic revelation, it is about the realisation of past Divine promises… the vindication of a priestess (or priest of course).

Divination, prophesy, destiny as I said, are somewhat ephemeral and so don’t expect the reality to play out like a carbon copy of what you originally predicted. This is in fact a good thing. Time has rolled on and energy has been gathering around this manifestation since it was first born as a ghost of an inclination whispered to you by the Great Cosmic Presence. You’ve been adding to and moulding its inception without understanding the physics behind the phenomenon of the observer causing the outcome simply by observing, piling your expectations into the creative mix which all have a co-creative effect.

Behind a precariously draped metaphorical curtain is the still-unfolding result of this long held vision… and this week the curtain will fall… at least partially.

What should you do?

More prophecies have been intuited in the age since this one, this is only the beginning. The true High Priestess is the passive feminine energy of the cosmos and so you mustn’t cajole or force the curtain, gravity will do that… but when the time comes to act, you must be ready to jump in and flow, fully understanding that all prophesy is self-fulfilling and that Destiny requires your participation in order to come about.

On that note, ask yourself this: Do we have free will? And moreover, are we manipulating Destiny or is Destiny manipulating us? Baring in mind the universe whispered the dream to you in the first place… (or did your soul-self whisper the dream to the universe which responded by telling the conscious you what it had heard)?

Don’t waste too much time on this chicken and egg conundrum, instead feel blessed that you were right all along.

Saturday Oracle – The Waiting Room

Principle 4: I AM Truth continues to hold dominance this week as it turns inwards shrouded in the deep indigo of the 3rd eye or brow chakra. This combination from The Intuitive Chalice Oracle is reminiscent of Hexagram 61 from the ancient Chinese I-Ching, “Inner Truth.”

You have no option this week but to face up to things as they actually are when the fuzzy edges between fantasy and reality become starkly obvious.

Let’s be honest, it’s been apparent for a while now that you have been in a holding pattern while the world around you has continued to turn, like sitting in the waiting room entranced by illusion, or more accurately, creating your own within your mind.

Inner truth is a gift, though for a while it may not appear so, simply because reality, or at least the current appearance of it in the material plane, will not resemble the happy place you’ve created in your mental waiting room. How could it? You’ve not been paying attention to the details of the outside environment and so they may have gone wildly off plan. But the gift of having the waiting room walls melt in the light of this week’s energy, is that once you see things for what they are you can begin to create change.

Maybe you realise that whilst you’ve been daydreaming about Tom Hardy, your real relationships have become distant? Whilst you’ve been imagining sipping champagne on a private yacht, you’ve ignored the pile of bills that need paying? Or whilst you’ve been indulging in a distracting social life, your health has been suffering? Perhaps you have been in denial about your career prospects but refused to change direction, so heavily are you invested in the rapidly faltering image you’ve created in your mind about success?

I’m a firm believer in The Law of Attraction and the need to visualise where you want to be as if you’re already there, feeling how you’ll feel when it comes to pass in the physical realm. I’m not suggesting you give up that practice… but there is a big difference between using the visualisation technique as a tool, and disappearing into it like Alice down the rabbit hole.

Your 3rd eye is a powerful tool and by feeding it truth this week you can begin to transform reality into a miracle. Only by admitting where you are can you plot a course with your Higher Power to a new destination that you no longer need to hide in the waiting room from.

Stop escaping and check in with reality… before reality bites.

Can You Care Too Much?

Monday’s feel like a good day to explore further the message that the weekend’s oracle provides for the days ahead, so hang with me to unlock the reason why the truth is so difficult. Ask yourself: can you care too much?

Truth was big on the agenda in Saturday’s reading and it strikes me that we all manage to hide absolute truth behind a wall built of fear. Fear of being seen as less than we pretend to portray, fear of loss, fear of rejection, fear of abandonment etc. but mostly this fear is an unconscious pattern that until explored remains a faceless feeling of unease that is squashed down and hidden in the closet by a lie, an exaggeration, an embellishment or an omission. The truth, we believe, will expose us and make us vulnerable.

The answer is that yes, we can care too much. But about what?

Outcomes, certainty and prediction, all the reasons we read oracles, see psychics and send ourselves half insane is to do with the human ego’s attempt to pin down the future, to be sure. “If I do A will it lead me to Z?”

But what happens when you stop caring?

When you disconnect from the need to know where all this is leading and detach from the destination (so much as to simply allow Source to lead you into whatever happens next with an open mind and an open heart), you put your inner gremlins back to bed because they have nothing left to protect you from. For example: when you give up the need for someone to like you or agree with you because you’re no longer invested in anything but the well-being of all parties, suddenly you open up a window for honest communication. Offending someone is no longer an obstacle because the primary objective becomes understanding, which can only come from genuine listening in equal measure to authentic speech… two way dialogue.

Imagine how different your conversations would be during your workday if you weren’t subconsciously sabotaging yourself and fudging reality because you were afraid your boss might not like you, or your colleagues might not invite you to the after work get-together.

Detach from your hidden agendas today by being ruthlessly honest with yourself first about what you are really withholding the truth for, and who from?… maybe it’s you?

Saturday Oracle – Truth Will Out

Truth will out this week as the authenticity contained in Principle 4: I AM Truth, embraces and communicates the same through the royal blue throat chakra. This combination is a bit like a double threat, but it’s a good one.

Some of the Grail Principles have a chakra twin, like this one, and that makes the combination more powerful… let me dissect them for you:

I AM Truth sets out an affirmation of acknowledgment of who you are and what feels right to you in your current state of evolution and from your current perspective. Though many people share similar beliefs, no two are ever exactly concurrent, simply because truth is viewed through and coloured by the eyes of experience and no two beings will ever have the same view. That being said, what’s true for you today may be transformed tomorrow by the introduction of new information… that’s why I like to add in a proviso with Principle 4 that says “I reserve the right to evolve.”

The throat chakra is the centre for communication and co-creation. When something is spoken it begins to take form because it’s moving from the realms of a private thought or idea and into the public domain. This goes for the written word too. Words are magic spells that can be used to harm or to heal, to create or to destroy and when engaging the throat chakra it should be done with caution and compassion….

But, in order to fully embrace this weeks oracle combination it should done without artifice, with absolute honesty.

Who you are, who you are willing to be, how you wish to be portrayed and what you want to be understood this week deserves nothing less than your truth. It’s a scary prospect putting it out there. Others may not agree, they may attempt to discredit you, they may attempt to claim your truth to be incorrect or even claim it as their own as has happened to me in the last few weeks…. but the facts remain the same: you have nothing to prove, nobody to convince and everything to gain by speaking out.

It’s worth noting that this coming week’s new moon in Aries is the first of the zodiac year and portends new beginnings and clean slates, but with Venus still in retrograde those new beginnings could have you in relationship reboot as you are presented with an ex who appears on the surface to have transformed from a sinner to a saint. With this combination make sure you are hearing truth from another before you fall for any bullshit. Though evolution of truth is high on the agenda and new understanding is possible, history and actions shouldn’t be ignored. Your truth has to override any proposition until evidence and corroboration is given.

Protection can be sought from Archangel Michael just by asking, and he will wrap you in his royal blue cloak, guide you towards safety and help you choose your words and actions wisely and for everyone’s highest good.

Have an open and honest week… x

Reintegration Of Soul Skills

I’m focusing this week on being whole and more to the point, presenting the whole self as you flow through life. The Wholly Grail’s Principle 4: I AM Truth is about exactly that. Instead of hiding the truth of who you are, instead of suppressing the parts of yourself that you believe may be judged and deemed to be unacceptable, now is the time to step into your full power and claim your own unique gifts as Divine. It’s time to begin the reintegration of soul skills.

I’m an energy healer, a spiritual teacher, a mentor, a counsellor, a coach… but I’m also an intuitive, an angel channel, a professional tarot consultant, basically a conduit for Source. I’ve had many of those skills on a back burner for the last 5 years though because the angels asked me to create something new: The Wholly Grail. The clue is in the title, it’s a set of Principles aimed at stripping away the layers that prevent you from recognising your wholeness (it’s not misspelled as some may have you believe). The Grail holds the truth that lies beyond the veil, the simple truth, but my truth is that I had to go on a hero’s journey through the veil to find what was never hidden in the first place… and that journey consisted of years of psychic study and training.

Being a channel for angels is my greatest gift and when they asked me to begin teaching, not about them but about the message they bring, I obliged like a good student. Moving into a world where being a spiritual counsellor, teacher, healer and mentor is taken far more seriously than talking to and receiving messages from the invisible realms meant that most of what I did, most of who I AM remained silent, waiting to be reclaimed and rejoiced at.

The Grail wouldn’t exist if it weren’t for my gifts. There are those who will scoff, those who will disbelieve, those who will fall away… my wisdom will pale for those who cannot reconcile it’s source (Source)… but ultimately by embracing all of who I AM, I have no need to prove my worth or the validity of my work. It speaks for itself. And as I’m fast approaching the next phase of my work you will notice it begin to morph to encompass more of my true nature.

I’m off this evening to do a live event for charity for the 20th anniversary of the first Harry Potter book… where I’ll be showcasing one or two of my psychic spooky skills. I hope you have the courage to claim yours this week… it’s time.

First Monday Challenge – Aligning The Crazy Internal Compass

It’s already March and the first Monday of the month has arrived to greet us with a challenge. Let us then meet it with an open heart and mind, not to mention great expectations.

Ask yourself a question to get yourself in the right frame of mind to enable this challenge to best serve you, the question is simple: “Am I going the right way?”

It’s not a trick question, and you may indeed be oriented towards all that is great and glorious but within you is a truth barometer that can detect the essence of a lie, denial, muddle or confusion. This internal barometer sends you messages constantly by the way that you feel, for example anxiety, apprehension, tension in the body may denote an untruth that you are telling yourself about the quality and validity of the current direction, whereas, joy, excitement, inspiration and expansiveness may be an indication that you’re right on track.

So ask yourself the question and allow the answer to arrive through the way that you feel.

Now for the challenge…

Did you just find out that your subconscious knows you’re off course? Don’t panic, the thing about this journey is that you can always adjust your heading and lay in a new set of coordinates, but the challenge is to first take a moment to check in with your compass: Source.

Altering course before you know where you wish to go or where your Soul wants to guide you would just have your ship going in circles and never having a clear indication of where you are, never mind what direction to take, so conscious contact with your higher power is the very next step to take. It’s all about aligning your crazy internal compass towards your intended outcome once you have determined what that is.

I know some of you maybe wondering what you really want out of life and have no real direction or purpose, especially if you have recently gone through a major life change or are trying to create one, so instead of specific, tangible goals, focus on how you want to feel… fulfilled, useful, joyful, adventurous, healthy, vital, loving, loveable and loved… how about those little gems for starters? Add your own and have fun with it.

Now all you need do is open your heart and mind to a new way of being, let go of everything you think you already know about who you are and what you’re capable of, and let God show you a sign about where to tread next… tread lightly and enjoy.

Happy Monday!

In The Presence Of Heroes

Many of you have them, heroes that is. Perhaps those in the media, those in powerful positions within your industries or interests, but how many of your heroes exist within your current circle of friends?

I feel very blessed to know quite a few, what I call, everyday heroes. People who inspire me day in, day out with extraordinary feats of endurance, patience, forgiveness, strength of character and the ability to break through personal barriers in their own lives and I am genuinely grateful for each of them.

When you focus on what needs to transform within your own life, often it’s difficult to see a way to break through old conditioning… My mum has this saying that makes me laugh “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks” which is basically her way of saying she can’t be bothered to break an old habit if it requires effort, but there are times when you genuinely don’t know how to start. This is the time when you call upon your heroes and ask yourself: “What do I admire about them?” “What attributes would I like to emulate in my own life?”

If you are surrounded by heroes then you too are blessed because you naturally begin to morph into the same vibration as those you spend your time with. If however, you find yourself spending the majority of your time with the victim brigade then guess where your energy is headed? A few of you will be strong enough to pull the crowd up by the bootstraps into the 5th dimension but most will be betting against losing odds. So here’s the thing… place yourself in the presence of heroes.

When it comes to The Wholly Grail, Principle 4: I AM Truth asks that you follow your own star and so emulating your heroes might seem counter-intuitive, but when you have identified and are focused on the star, it’s helpful if someone is around to demonstrate how to tie the rope and lasso the one with your name on it!

The heroes in your life will show you how, tell you you can, ¬†cheer you on whilst you try and open the champagne when you succeed… The heroes are my kind of people.

Appreciation Is Far More Empowering

Right and wrong are concepts that fall within the realms of what is considered socially acceptable, but sometimes being told you have been a bad or good girl/boy has nothing to do with majority consensus and is in fact a patronising attempt by one or more individuals to control another.

Do you fall under the title of people pleaser?

This in itself may sound patronising but I just had the misfortune to witness a crap tv show (which I should have turned off but it’s what I call car crash television: it’s a travesty but you can’t look away) in which a beautiful Golden Retriever was the co-star of the show. The number of times the main character said “good boy” whilst scratching that cute pooch’s ears was worthy of the scriptwriter being handed his or her cards… but that’s not the point…

That dog was so happy to be told he was a good boy just because he knew how to fetch.

As its Monday, many of you will be facing situations, perhaps in work, where someone appears to have all the power… ¬†how people handle power is an amazing insight into their personalities. Treating people how you want to be treated is key to building mutual respectful relationships, so before you praise someone think how you do it… its far more likely to be well received if you simply express appreciation or gratitude for the actions they have taken rather than an opinion on whether it was good or bad. Appreciation is far more empowering than approval.

So if you answered yes to the “are you a people pleaser?” question, then the chances are you are waiting with bated breath for any ounce of approval… this is a sign you’ve given your power away. Don’t despair, it’s easy enough to take it back. I have a face for that… it usually involves raised eyebrows slightly furrowed in the middle. I developed the face as a team member and then manager of a large team of employees. People get the face once and they don’t make that mistake again.

Principle 4: I AM Truth, takes courage and a good sense of who you are without the need for fitting into the good graces of others and usually requires you to let go of your fear of disappointing someone and what you might lose as a result.

Now be a good girl/boy and leave me some feedback.

Or

I’d appreciate your feedback on this post…

Which feels better?

You have the power to decide.
