Don’t Take It With you – Find Freedom Through Forgiveness

Being able to find freedom through forgiveness sounds impossible when you are holding onto so much anger and resentment from whatever betrayal you feel has been perpetrated against you, but I’m asking you, for your own sake, please don’t take it with you into the next year.

As it happens, every single moment of every single day is an opportunity to begin again with a clean slate, but for some reason, we as a species have agreed upon the arbitrary date of January 1st to be the beginning of a new cycle (personally, I see the Solstice as being a more natural point but it matters not). This New Year then can be heavily symbolic of all our hopes and dreams for a fresh start.

The single biggest threat to your new beginning though, is your inability to let go of the past and to carry it and all its associated judgements with your into the next cycle.

I cannot imagine holding onto the pain of past disappointments and wearing them like a badge of honour as what I had to endure… who would that make me? Unforgiveness is a mark of victimhood long after the incident is long since gone. It is the repeat pattern of self-imposed torture and the reinvigorating of the painful emotions associated with what is no longer current… worse still, it is your complicity in continuing to wield the weapon that was originally used to harm you… you therefore repeatedly energetically self-harm on the behalf of your abuser who has nothing to do other than to sit back and enjoy your suffering if they are so inclined.

Forgiveness is a lesson not in divinity but in humanity. To be human is hard, its also terrifying at times because where once you, as a soul, were invincible and eternal, you have now been thrust into a fragile, vulnerable outer shell that appears to have a finite existence and no recollection of the truth of who you are or why you came. The separateness from those around you has you seeking to connect but scrambling to remain apart for fear that some of your finite resources might be usurped even if those resources are your energy and your reputation (and your pride and your false sense of the definition you have givien to yourself). You’ve lost perspective because you forgot that what hurts you hurts the whole and what hurts the whole ultimately hurts you and so you endeavour to perpetuate the bile of anger and spew it at those who hurt you… becoming a mirror of their actions instead of a transmuter of all lower vibrations… a light guiding others back to wholeness.

You didn’t come to carry pain, you came to expand through the experience of it and every other sensation, seemingly good or bad. You came to be a good student and a co-creative bridge-builder between heaven and earth… but you cannot build bridges whist you are burning them down and closing your heart to all experiences that might be reminiscent of something that turned sour once upon a time. Please don’t take it with you.

You do not have to invite the individual that caused you harm into your orbit again, you do not have to formally say the words “I forgive you” to them at all. Forgiveness is a deeply personal act of recognising the fallibility, frailty and vulnerability in another human being that caused them, always through fear, to act out, and then remembering the power within you to let go of what doesn’t serve your highest good and allow light back in to heal the space where the darkness was once poisoning you from the inside out.

How to find freedom through forgiveness will be the subject of one of the workshops I will be running in early 2020. If you haven’t managed to leave it behind in 2019 then I would be honoured to guide you through the healing process. Look out for details soon.

Kicked The Codependency Habit? …What Next?

Its a question I had to ask myself recently: have I kicked the codependency habit? My answer was met with two distinct voices, one of whom was singing my praises and celebrating with a resounding “Yes!” While the other was desperately waving red flags and asking: “How will I know until I’m faced with another test?”

It’s been a bit of a harrowing and yet bitterly sweet few years, learning the true meaning of what it is to not just love myself more, but to truly respect my own divinity and worth at the deepest level. This concept is the basis for the first Principle in the Grail and the one from which the power to accept all the others is derived. It is also the foundation upon which all versions of personal happiness and sustainable success in life and love are built.

I knew that. Well, intellectually at least.

It is one thing to bandy about words and concepts like self-love, self-respect and self-worth, but it’s quite another to integrate the energy of, and begin to live by the highest frequency of these conscious programmes. Until you do, nobody else in your sphere will show you how to do it… its true that people can only love you to the extent that you love yourself and more importantly that they will inevitably love you the way you show them how. By that premise, until we have integrated and begun to consistently display the elements of reverence for our own divinity, nobody else is going to.

I’ve had a little internal conversation with the voice of my red flag bearer, about the true nature of her presence… you see the fact that she’s there flag-in-hand, tell’s me that I’m still very aware of the potential for codependent, even toxic relationships and connections that comes as a result of forgetting who I am, even for just a moment. And that because of her presence, I cannot forget… so I am lavishing just as much love on that part of me as I am on the part that knows she’s overcome the greatest test she was sent to endure and not only survived, but firmly decided that she’s a much better version of herself as a result of the journey.

What’s even more special is that I now know for sure that my capacity for forgiveness is infinite. I’m not talking about the words: “I forgive you,” (although they are a good place to start). I’m talking about the radical transmutation of all anger and resentment, all blame and all shame and the unltimate liberation from any sense of attachment or victimhood. Add to that, the fact that I know it’s all been a test and that new tests will arrive, shows indications that in knowing myself and accepting myself with the same openness and compassion I give to others, stems from the understanding that nothing in this world is ever personal

If its not personal, I can play with it more. Be easy with it, be easy on myself.

Always remember you get to choose how you interact with others but it has to start with how you honour yourself. To do that you have be brave enough to say goodbye to anything that doesn’t honour you. Be unafraid of losing even the most precious of connections. If you do lose it, it was never love.

If you’ve kicked the codependency habit but are still unsure if the next adventure will go the same way, love yourself enough to say no until you no longer feel the need to silence your red flag waving reminder of how far you’ve come. She’s not your inner-wound, she’s your standard-bearer and she’s setting your standards way higher than you ever thought you were worthy of. She’s going to make sure you are attracting only the crystal clear mirror of your own self-love in another human being.

Honour her first and foremost. The red on that flag is the depth and passion of your beautiful heart. It deserves nothing less in return.

December’s Oracle – Ta-Da!

December’s Oracle – Ta-Da! Yes, The Sacred Chalice showed up to signal the arrival of something huge. No, I’m not talking about Christmas, I’m talking about a major turning point in life where it seems as if all roads were leading to this singular point.

Admittedly, The Sacred Chalice can be equally as challenging as it is miraculous and fortune could swing either way at this point, but what it does gurantee is change.

Change may arrive in the form of positive news, an opportunity, or invitation, but could just as easily denote illness or loss. Sometimes the biggest most exciting opportunity requires that you give something else up and so it holds both blessings and burdens in it’s grasp.

For me personally, when I pull this card I know that whatever the short term disruption may bring, the long term pay off is enormous and immeasurable, so I give thanks whenever I see it.

What I would like you to be vigilant about at this time is how you are processing the changes that are occuring around you. Even the happiest of occasions can create a disturbance in your health and energy field that need time to settle and ground. Two angels I like to call upon during times of chaos and upheaval are Archangel Haniel and Archange Uriel.

Haniel is the Angel of Grace and helps you to remain composed under pressure. Uriel, whose name means the Light of God helps me to stabilise my inner “pilot light” and keeps my physiological resources firing at a steady rate so I don’t hit burn out in the process.

Whatever exciting changes crop up for you this week, try to maintain some routine and pay close attention to how Self-Full you are being: rest well, hydrate, eat a nutritious diet and make time to both exercise and meditate. My best friend through all the changes I’ve negotiated over the years has been my journal. It helps me to process how I’m feeling, what I’m thinking and also to monitor the tone and texture of my mindset, allowing me to adjust the sails in a more positive direction if I begin to lose myself in all the mess.

As The Sacred Chalice is the only card in the Intuitive Chalice that is not accompanied by a chakra/challenge card, the exact nature of your Ta-Da! moment is impossible for me to predict and will no doubt touch multiple layers of your life. It is an indication that The Grail is present, only you can know whether the Grail is overflowing in your life or has been spilled over and emptied…

One thing is for sure, the nature of the universe is that all states serve and we must experience both in balance in order to fully know what it is to live and love.

I’m praying your December’s Oracle – Ta-Da! moment is the biggest blessing of the decade.

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.

How Do You Overcome The Urge To Go Back?

Have you ever been in that new-to-you situation where you are making amazing strides forward and really surfing the energy of inspired action only to find that the moment you stop, you slide back into old habits and almost ruin your run of blissed-out beingness? How do you overcome the urge to go back to how it was before?

What a couple of weeks I’ve had!

I have to be honest November has been a cyclone of activity here at Jo Jerodene central (also known as my kitchen), with content creation and finely tuned angelic connection guiding my every step as I dive into all the things that have been scaring the shit out of me for a while. All perfectly coordinated, planned and scheduled. Heck, I even had time in my “Oh-my-God-you’re-on-fire-woman” timetable to take up learning the Pasodoble and other latin dances to make sure the inordinate amount of time I’m spending at my desk doesn’t transform me into a spreading seated statue!

But then I went and did the unthinkable…

I stopped and let someone else’s timetable take over my own. Someone else’s needs, someone else’s priorities… and my Self-Full streak came crashing down all in the name of a social life.

Don’t get me wrong, I love spending time with friends and loved ones and being Self-Full means finding balance in all areas of your life. Isolation certainly isn’t on my list of things to accomplish for a healthy or happy life. It’s simply that the time I scheduled for the encounter got rearranged due to poor planning on our part and as a result was extended into two sessions rather than one… cue: my schedule out the window!

When you are an empath, social situations require recovery time to reset your energy, so the day that followed also had to be written off for me… but there is a part of me that if I’m 100% honest with myself (Grail Principle 4: I AM Truth), never mind you, I allowed that recovery day to become a day of reversion to an old pattern.

I told myself I didnt have what it takes to do the most basic stuff and convinced myself that I was being Self-Full when what I was actually doing was self-sabotaging my good work, to settle back into a comfort zone which, if I’m even more honest is now feeling anything but comfortable.

See, as the creator of the Grail, I’m still just as vulnerable to overturning the cup and spilling its vital life force everywhere through subconscious patterns and lack of discipline.

So, how do you overcome the urge to go back?

I have several systems in place that have been successful in pulling me back from the breach today, the first of which is my commitment to you. Accountability is a brilliant way of keeping on top of things, but more effective even than that, has been the massive amount of pre-work I did (before I came back to public Grail work), on my “why?”

Knowing why you do something, your real underlying motive, your goal, your intention in it’s purest form, can give you all the ammunition you need to shoot the shit out of your inner demons and quieten the loudest voice of opposition your ego can throw your way.

It was never my commandeered schedule that was the cause of my misery, it was my inflexibility, my inability to adapt and my old self waiting to for the first excuse to take control of the reigns with evidence of why being different won’t work…

She’s now been kicked to the curb and I’m on high alert for her attempting to sabotage me again.

The Grail Mechanics have the answers to the inner demons who want to see you fail. Watch out in the next couple of weeks because I will make them available more widely for you to ponder and conquer your own sabotage squad!

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!

Entering a New Chapter of Soul-Led Living

You know that feeling when it’s just time to glide into a new beginning? Well, that’s me today on 11/11 no less, entering a new chapter of Soul-Led Living.

My angels and guides have had me considering it for quite some time, but the final shift came during a momentus weekend at the beginning of the month, when I travelled to a conference that profoundly shifted my focus and lit a fire under my ass! I’ve been working very long hours ever since to prepare for today when I launch, ready or not, into a new beginning for me and the way I deliver the Grail as a framework for creating your life the way you want to live it.

You see, since it was born in 2012, The Wholly Grail has focused mainly on its inaugural set of 7 Principles (which still comprise the magical keys to setting yourself free), but it has grown exponentially since then into not just a philosophy but a system built on 4 Pillars that support your Grail Temple or your combined spiritual and practical life on all fronts:

  1. The 7 Principles
  2. The Grail Mechanics
  3. Lateral Axis
  4. Vertical Axis

The Grail Mechanics are the obstacles that many of us face when applying the keys and can often seem to require a ‘monkey wrench’ to get you unstuck. The Lateral Axis, or as I like to call it “The Garden of Eden” is the practical, real-life application of the Grail and how it affects your daily life and manifested reality and finally The Vertical Axis is the art of alignment and releasing resistence to the changes you want to make within, before you commence making changes to whats going on outside… basically how to get out of your own way!

Entering a new chapter of Soul-Led Living myself, means that lots of things need to change. Things that need to fall away must, like habits and behaviours, old relationships and mindsets. It took me moving out of my familiar environment just for a short while to really begin to take a fresh look at what had to be realigned within me and upon returning I was then able to implement these changes on an existential level. A couple of those changes are in the form of how I interact with you and how I serve in general.

Here’s what’s changing:

all of these to help you on your journey.

I don’t know about you but I’m excited to see what this chapter has in store and I’m looking forward to guiding you on the path if you’ll let me.

With Love,

Still Don’t Know Who I Am?

I have to admit, my mind began to boggle just a few short weeks ago when a friend I’ve known for 13 years sent me a message saying she knew someone who wanted to connect with a medium and did I still do that kind of work? Er…? I’ve never done that kind of work! Though I have the greatest respect and admiration for those who do, this incident set me back to thinking again: Still Don’t Know Who I Am?

My path took a different turn when I began my spiritual journey, and though my mediumship and psychic skills developed rapidly, I chose to be a channel for ascension, honing in on the higher angelic realms and establishing a link with energies that unlocked the soul’s potential.

It sounds really cool when you say it like that but in it’s essence, I learned to listen to the soul’s voice (and the higher messages of it’s celestial counterparts).

I’ve been doing it now for more than two decades and only just in the last year, the year where I’ve been frequently absent from the digital lanscape, have I finally found the missing pieces that make all of my work and all of my meetings with Big Me (and Big G) fall into place.

Once you learn to listen to the soul’s voice and to it’s guidance for you, going back to being asleep isn’t an option. Asking your late Aunty Betty where she put the premium bonds is a bit of a waste of your potential and keeps you trapped in what was, rather than in what could be.

It isn’t easy living a “Soul-Led Life” until you fully break free of the person you were before. You find that many people fall away, old ways of living no longer appeal, but before they let go completely they try harder to pull you back into the 3rd dimensional low vibration that you once lived… the moaning, the complaining, the judging, the never being grateful and never feeling good enough or loveable enough or just generally enough.

Forming an intimate connection with your own soul opens up a gateway to all other relationships in your life: your relationship to your ego, your relationship to your body, to your health, to your family, to your co-workers, to your friends and lovers, spouses and siblings, to your parents (and to your late Aunty Betty) and non of these relationships have the hold over you that they once did because now you understand that they too are a transient part of the great continuum. Nothing is ever truly separate and all things are equal… you learn this because you also develop an intimate relationship with what you came to do and to the Meta-Presence. We have been fighting over the correct name for it ever since we first began to mistakenly see ourselves as separate from it. I call it God, or Big G, (sometimes I call it Jo Jerodene. And why not? It is everything including me. Check out Grail Principle 1 to learn more).

Your whole life begins to settle into a more trusting cooperative flow when you learn to connect deeply and without fear of what your soul might show you. That’s what I do: I teach you to listen to your own soul’s voice. As a teacher I give you the tools to develop that intimate relationship with the eternal part of yourself. I provide the framework within which you might conduct these high frequency interviews and a formula to translate the inevitable gifts of insight you recieve into your daily life. I’m effectively a locksmith for human potential, guiding you back towards love.

As I’m writing this on All Hallows Eve, what I can tell you directly from your dearly departed loved ones is this: they are sitting in circle right now with your Soul-Self, pouring energy into the path ahead of you and cheering you on to take this opportunity to embrace all of your potential by listening deeply to your own soul’s message.

Do you know who I am now? I had no idea what I was capable of, but Big Me had the answer all along. Aren’t you just a wee bit curious what secrets Big You has to share?

Psst… My new book Self-Full Living Workbook is available now from Amazon… grab a copy here!

Do You Know Who I Am? Let Me Reintroduce Myself…

Do you ever look around you at the people who claim to know you and think: “Shit! Have you even met me? Do you know who I am?

I’ve been contemplating this very question and a mad realisation came over me… if they don’t know the real me, whose fault is that? Well, mine obviously… There is something I failed to tell them or let them see or make clear.

We all hide behind a mask of “I’ve got my shit together and I know what I’m doing and everything is A-Okay with my world,” until it isn’t and all of a sudden everyone backs away slowly going “who the hell is this girl and what the absolute f**k did she do with the woman I know.”

Let me be the first to redress the balance… Let me reintroduce myself:

Hi I’m Jo. I’m a 47 year old divorcee with a string of dysfunctional romantic connections behind me, I’m skint and I’m overweight and I’m trying hard to hold it together whilst supporting an elderly parent with the beginnings of what might be dementia…

…Hold on a minute though, because I’m also the incredibly lucky woman who supports countless other women all over the world to live their truth and find peace and happiness with what is, so they can feel empowered enough to change it into what they want it to be.

Yes I’m 47 but take a good look at the picture at the top of my website… no special lighting, no filter, no make-up… thats me! And the pic is a selfie I took on my mobile (cell) phone. If you can spot a wrinkle you win a prize! That’s peace.

Yes I’m currently single but after years of dealing with codependency and narcissitic or emotionally unavailable men, I’m so loving, loving me that it’s going to take one hell of an enlightened authentic individual to match my level of self-love and if he doesn’t show up what does it matter as long as I’m enjoying life.

Yes I’m skint but I used to be in a well paid management position that made me so miserable I got a migraine like clockwork at the same time every day and ended up being tested for adrenal cancer due to burn out… I’d rather be happy, healthy and broke than rich and dead!

Yes I’m overweight but I’m also a healthy-eating nutritionist who happens to like cake. I do yoga and tai-chi and though I’m a clumsy beginner at both, who resembles the hippos in tutus on Disney’s Fantasia more than the graceful swan I think I look like, I love it… and did I tell you I dance like I own the dance floor and managed to outdance some skinny dude in dance-off in Edinbrugh whilst having a ball out with the girls? What the hell has the size of a woman’s arse got to do with loving life?

Yes I’m struggling at present with the deterioration of my mum’s health but that woman taught me more about doing what makes you happy than any other person in my life, so I’m grateful everyday for the time we have together.

Now, let me tell you who I’m not…

I’m not the woman who is going to teach you how to get rich. Everybody and her aunt is trying to sell you a scheme or a strategy to make you millions on social media… it hasnt worked for me so far but i’m rich beyond words when it comes to my spiritual life.

I’m not the woman who is going to show you how to make yourself skinny and beautiful… you dont have to go far to find the endless brands selling you a pipedream about how you will will lose weight in days if you buy their product and how you will take 10 years off if you use their face cream… my skin care is super basic and from a high street drug store.

I’m not the woman who is going to promise you that the man of your dreams is just around the corner… I met him already, he was a self-centred arsehole with an ego the size of a continent and there is a reason he only exists in your dreams. The right guy will love the real you when you choose to love the real you first.

I’m not the woman who will tell you that you are never going to face a dilemma again or deal with the peaks and troughs of everyday life… (I’m still on the feckin’ rollercoaster)!

I’m the woman who already knows that you are enough, that you are, right now, the exact perfect version of you to be happy healthy and at peace with what is, that you are a woman of extraordinary character, bravery and tenacity, and at that very moment you begin to accept you for who you are, where you are and how you are… you’re gonna live a beautiful life filled with beautiful experiences.

I’m the woman who took my own high’s and lows (combined them with the experiences of all the women I have helped and supported over the years to go on to do some amazing things) and created a path to self-love… where I found my Wholly Grail.

Nice to meet you. I’d be honoured to help you start living your life as you! Where would you like us to start?

October’s Oracle – Let Your Soul-Voice Ring Out

October’s Oracle holds the promise of personal authenticity and asks that you let your soul-voice ring out.

Containing the combination of Principle 4: I AM Truth, which in short says: “I need nobody’s permission to be fully myself,” with the royal blue throat chakra that holds sovereignty over self-expression and communication, this month you are positively encouraged to share with the world your inner truth in a way that is unmodified for the benefit of social constraint.

Can you be unapologetically you?

You are always going to be too much for some people, you are always going to shine too bright for others… there will always be those who seek to diminish or criticize you in some way and so this month you may need to get beyond brave and be you anyway.

You can no longer continue to be small or play small so that others will either not notice you or decide you’re insignificant enough to leave be… you have a message, a mission and a magical life to live that requires you to be front and centre of your own life’s stage.

The good news is this: they don’t have your perspective so their opinion is not needed and probably not even relevant. What you failed to notice before now is that if they don’t like it, it probably wasn’t meant for them, and those it was meant for have been patiently waiting for you to start sharing your story so that they may follow the path and avoid the pitfalls that only you can tell them about.

You have to start focusing on your authentic soul-voice. It’s unique to you. Your soul has travelled a path through lifetimes that no other living being has traversed and no matter how wise or knowledgeable your critics may seem, no matter how learned or experienced, qualified or certified they may be in their field… you are the only expert on your story and your story may well be a lifeline to someone else who is navigating their own road at this time.

Say thank you to those who might try to mould you in their image, but then follow up with the phrase: “Your concern is appreciated but not required.” You’ve tried it their way and you lost your way.

Get naked and vulnerable.

I don’t mean take your clothes off, I mean take your mask off and show the world who you are. When you let your soul-voice ring out, your story becomes your rallying cry and your truth becomes your colours. Whatever your message might be, whatever your art might be, you dont have to hide it anymore. The Divine has your back and this month you’re ready to be more than you allowed yourself to be up until now!

I, for one, am looking forward to hearing your story.
