Sometimes a sabbatical, time out is a good thing, regeneration of the soul.

I haven’t posted for a while, I took some time out to process some thoughts, feelings, emotions regarding my current journey.  Naturally, I tend to do this anyway, reflection is so powerful for the soul, I often find that after such a period of time, I am able to come back with a fresh eye, renewed sense of awareness and a different level of energy.

We had a Full Moon in Scorpio yesterday, full moon’s as you are probably aware are filled with powerful potential of renewal and releasing of the old.

It is not unknown around a Full Moon period to allow your soul the gift of releasing what may have been wearing you down, weighing heavily on your soul, or just simply put it no longer feels right, you can sense within the very essence of you that something has changed, there may be a sense of resistance as you grapple with the familiar, grapple with keeping things they way your are used to, comfortable with, but in that complacency there isn’t the capacity to grow, if you do allow yourself to stay the same, so in the journey of reflection, you can get to a stage where after the processing internally has taken place, you can feel a sense of “one day my soul just opened up” embrace it, flow with it, enjoy it, and allow yourself to be in the moment.  I will be back with more postings shortly.

Don’t forget to set your new intent after releasing the old and outworn, ready for a brand new chapter as you walk towards the next new moon which is indicative of renewal, rebirth and newness.

Today’s Universe Has Your Back Message 14/04/2018

Good Afternoon,

Oh may what a beautiful day, we have waited for some long awaited Sun and Vitamin D, and today’s message actually ties in with finding joy, so one can truly see that the energy is increasing and intensifying in a different way, especially today as at 3.25am the moon went into the sign of Aries, fiery, dynamic, warrior spirit.

So where are you creating your mindful moments? and how? I hope that you are, because it is all too easy to get oneself into a rut of work, home-life responsibilities and all things adult, it is important that we find time to play, today I did, I put some music on whilst I was doing some stuff at home and danced my feet off, oh how I do love to abandon my spirit to the beat of music, in particular to the beat of my own rhythm and my own soul, wanton spirit LOL, I make no apology.

So today as the moon enters the fiery sign of Aries and Sun is shining it looks like it is ushering new spring energy which is also associated with new beginnings, do take time to be creative, to allow your inner child a chance to find joy and to create special moments that uplift your mind, body and spirit.

Have a super Saturday, in love and beautiful Sunlight, Susan xxx20180414_151717.jpgimg1455829944616

Today’s Universe Has Your Back Message – 12/04/2018

Good Morning, Good Morning, Good Morning,

Happy Thursday in its unfolding, today’s message relates to getting closer to consciousness, what is consciousness you may ask? consciousness is this, (source Wikipedia) Consciousness is the state or quality of awareness, or, of being aware of an external object or something within oneself.[1][2] It has been defined variously in terms of sentience, awareness, qualia, subjectivity, the ability to experience or to feel, wakefulness, having a sense of selfhood or soul, the fact that there is something “that it is like” to “have” or “be” it, and the executive control system of the mind.[3] In contemporary philosophy its definition is often hinted at via the logical possibility of its absence, the philosophical zombie, which is defined as a being whose behaviour and function are identical to one’s own yet there is “no-one in there” experiencing it. I felt it the best way to define it in more detail.

Today’s card relates to you doing whatever it takes to get you closer to that feeling of consciousness, some relate consciousness as getting closer to “Source” to “God” to whatever you believe in.  You see we also have our conscious thoughts and minds, and the polarity to this is our subconscious mind, sometimes there can be conflict between the two talking a different language.  To be conscious is to be “Aware” “Awake” and having a sense of mindfulness and knowing what you are doing.  Sometimes when you have an intent of doing something and the outcome is different, this may be as a result of conflict between ones conscious thoughts and ones subconscious behaviours.

Interesting eh? Oh yes, I think so too.   So today’s message is asking you to do whatever it takes to bring you closer to consciousness, only you will know how and the way in which this needs to be addressed.

Have a blessed and beautiful Thursday, in Love & Light Susan xxxx20180412_102543.jpg

Today’s Universe Has Your Back Message 09/04/2018

Good Evening,

How has your day been today, I awoke today feeling uber sensitive, perhaps it is because I am fending off a heavy cold and have been feeling a little bit out of sorts, desperately trying to continue doing what needs to be done, ever get those moments where you just feel yucky?

Sensitive, insecurities popping up to feel heard, concerns, worries, yes I have those human thoughts too.

Today’s card has me in mind of Carl Jung’s Shadow Self and his work, I do find his work interesting and quite fascinating, its depth, its terminology and its meaning, I relate the term Shadow Self here

Shadow: Hidden or unconscious aspects of oneself which the ego has either repressed or never recognized.  I do think that in order to do any type of healing work it is essential to touch base with core aspects of our shadow self, this is not always an easy thing to do, as sometimes going back to some earlier experiences can reinforce the trauma experienced, but I do believe that in order to heal one must allow oneself to feel with guidance.

Today’s card relates to two polar opposites darkness and light, it is ironic as I am so aware of these feelings within myself today and have allowed myself to feel what I am feeling with an understanding that whatever it is that my subconscious self is trying to reveal to me, it will do so in its rightful timing.

So today I ask you what are you aware of within yourself that is rippling from your subconscious?

Today’s message is this, what is it you fear? what is it that I fear? what is feared? and how can it be transmuted through the energy of love, well I did take myself out of my comfort zone today, doing so is always a positive thing as it means one is challenging oneself, so if you do identify with something that is making you feel a little bit wobbly and you identify it as “Fear” challenge it, face it and then allow it to flow and move through you.  You got this, quite often what we fear is imagined anyway and blown up in our minds and the actual thought of it is far worse.

I am not going to say stay positive, because I do feel that is a clique, you cannot tell someone to stay positive when they are having thoughts and feelings, but you can support them to identify with what they are feeling, process it, acknowledge it, validate it and then work with a choice on how to move past it, that right there is the gift.

Stay true to your feeling self, knowing that you have the power within you to make a choice whether you allow something to define you or not.

In love & Light Susan xx

What do you need to release this Full Moon 31/3/2018 – Second Blue Moon of 2018

There have been such a long of deep ripples in relation to energy which has felt dank, dark and heavy, we have just left Mercury Retrograde, that is always a trying time, usually when Mercury Retrograde is around it can be testing and trying times, plus there has been a big solar shift and on top of this, today a Full Moon, which is termed a blue moon, the moon won’t actually be blue, it is just termed as such.

Usually in the manner I post in my group and pages on Facebook “What do you need to release this Full Moon”? it is usually a time for letting go of that which you feel no longer serves your greatest and highest vibration for your soul, a reminder that nothing is ever “Good” or “Bad” it just is, things just have a way of coming to their natural end.  So if you find yourself in a situation that you have felt some ripples, reverberations that something isn’t right (it usually isn’t) then allow your intuition to guide you and go with that.

It simply means the Reason, Season and Time have been reached for that part of your soul journey, and that the Universe your souls calling is preparing you ready for your next chapter of soul growth, quite often there is a bit of resistance and it can feel like an inner tug of war with yourself, that is okay, go with it, things will settle, once you have had an opportunity to process your emotions around what you may be experiencing.

Sometimes there just needs to be a shift for renewal and sometimes we take some along with us, once a shift has taken place, sometimes we may need to let go, and sometimes we need to just trust the timing of the Universe.

So on that note, Happy Releasing, Happy Renewal for your soul to prepare for its next chapter, after all in we stay the same, growth doesn’t happen.

Growth simply cannot happen by staying the same, thank any lessons for their blessings and for giving you the opportunity to have had some new teaching.

Happy Lunar Release.

In Love & Light, Susan xxxxIMG_20180331_202913_29811241491_430514817122947_1670245204_n

Release Toxic Relationships – 03/03/2018

Happy Saturday,

Today I write with regards to what would be beneficial for your soul growth, as I sat quietly I asked for a card to be drawn as a message for greater soul growth and the potential to reach soul growth in a positive way.

The card that came up was Release Toxic Relationships, the deck that I use are by James Van Praagh, so I cannot take full ownership but I can relay the message that has come up.

The key indicators of this card are that in order for you soul to thrive, it needs to be in an environment of love and harmony, any type of conflict, imbalance or discordance only creates difficulty for your soul to thrive.  Often times souls who are sensitive, HSP’s (Highly Sensitive Persons) Lightworkers, those with a psychic or spiritual inclination will attract others who may be drawn to their light and can siphon of your energy if you are not careful, leaving you depleted and lacking energy.  On this basis, it is extremely important that you protect your energy and protect yourself.  For those who are natural “helpers” the first inclination will be naturally gravitate to those whom gravitate towards you to help, but in doing so, at times may not be conducive for their soul growth, know when to step back and when to help, at least this is what I have learnt, do place those boundaries, let your intuition guide you as to when to help and when to step back.   Sometimes too a soul may be brought to you too, to establish just how much you may have grown in the art and discernment of saying no and that you have the strength to actually release them for their greater good.

Toxic relationships come in many shapes and many forms, some of the key aspects of wisdom and experience are an understanding of which, learn to discern whom is good for your soul growth and whom isn’t, now this may not happen straight away, it can happen too when there is growth within existing relationships, just like seasons, time and place things have the capacity to naturally fall away organically when growth has taken place and renewal, rebirth needs to take place, it is not wrong, it is not right, it just IS, there need not be bitterness, discord with this process just an inner understanding that a journey has come to its natural end.  As you emerge anew you may need to re-organize, re-structure and shuffle yourself and vice versa as this change takes place.  This card has come up at a time of new seeding which is Spring and also just after the last Full Moon 2 days ago which was in the Astrological sign of Virgo, one of the key attributes of a Full Moon phase is to release what is outworn, what no longer serves your soul growth and RELEASE.

Do not allow your kindness, empathy and compassion to allow others to mistreat you or disrespect your soul growth, remembering too that it is equally important for the other party to be afforded this too so they too can GROW, it is a two way mirror which reflects individually for each who play a part.

When something comes to an end, send it love, give it love, say thank you for the lessons, blessings, the gifts, all of what that journey may have encompassed, and thank you for allowing me the space to grow in that chapter, say to yourself I AM READY, I AM READY, for a new chapter and I feel full of wisdom, love, knowledge from all of the teachings that I have had to let go of before.

Stay blessed, be blessed and always come from a place of LOVE.

Calm is not to be perceived as a weakness!

How many times do you see a quiet individual and think they are meek and mild, how many times? judgment you see is human nature, we do it all the time, even for those who state that they don’t, even for those who are conscious of their thoughts and are mindful in their actions of them.

You see there is so much judgement around quietness, being still, to be perceived as quiet it means, what is that person thinking, they are quiet, they appear very timid, mild and meek, but do you know calm and quiet can be a quiet hidden strength that resides from a very deep place.

I asked the Universe today for today’s card and the card that was drawn was “Calm Is Not A Weakness”.  the key principles of its message today are as follows:-

  • A balanced and harmonious existence attracts exactly that
  • No drama
  • Human society aspires to movers and shakers type A personalities, but what is the cost to their human emotional state, physical state and emotional well-being, at what cost.
  • Slow and steady does win the race, it is not how long it takes to get there, but that you get there.
  • Constant pressure to achieve can result in burn-out, distinguishing ones soul
  • Take care of your human vessel
  • Scattered energies achieve little
  • Focus, slowly and diligently
  • Money not being a total objective over inner calm, peace and inner happiness
  • You have all you need
  • You are resourceful
  • Meditation and sitting in silence, quietens the mind, body and spirit and nourishes the soul.

So I ask you what are you doing to quieten your mind, body and spirit? where do you give your soul the nourishment of calm, inner peace.  Tomorrow is a Full Moon a perfect time to allow the ebb of the Full Moon to flow over you as you prepare for the next chapter of your journey.

Remember a calm inner self equates to a peaceful soul.

Stay blessed.

In love & Light, Susan xx

Reviewing a box of dark chocolates!

Today I wanted to share a concept of dark chocolates, I remember many years ago seeing this meme. FB_IMG_1519284648761

It took me some years later to understand the importance of its meaning.  “Heartbreak”, now we all know, in fact I do not imagine for one moment that anyone does not know what that feels like, it is one of human nature experiences that are always an aspect of life through the passage of time.

My perception of it is that the dark chocolates are the very things that need to be addressed in a relationship that is not healthy, may be toxic, may be imbalanced, may be where there are aspects that are being shown as a means for soul development and a journey to growth, one thing I have come to realize is that our deepest, darkest, shadow experiences, the most harrowing of experiences are where our soul grows the most, we are forced to as in the very deepest aspect where we are forced out of our comfort zone we are afforded the gift of light after our dark chocolates experience.

One of the most painful aspects of this dark chocolates experiences are the feelings of loss, not dissimilar to the feeling of “grief”, grief can sometimes plummet you down the rabbit hole, sometimes it can take you to a very dark and overcast place as it introduces you to the very core aspects of our subconscious self that may need to be healed, especially if there has been trauma that has been experienced before, whether this is from an early experience, childhood or other.

You see our triggers do in fact have something to teach us, as we journey through the very differing range of emotions that we can experience through loss, heartache, whether it be through death, or a severing of a relationship we become faced with aspects of ourselves that may feel rather uncomfortable, this is not a one rule for all, it is a rule for some, some are able to just dust themselves down and appear not to be as affected.  However, a point to note in my opinion from experience is that when we soldier on and do not give our souls a space of acknowledging, processing, validating an experience, there can be a situation much later in life where it can smack us in the face.  The Universe does that you see.

Having this dark chocolates experience can feel rather uncomfortable, disconcerting, unfamiliar, scary, leave you with a sense of not feeling in control as you journey through the experience of coming to terms with what has been handed to you.  I liken this to experiences that you may not have been expecting or may not have seen, a traumatic event that has jolted your soul awake, jolted it, shook it to the very core and rippled the whole of the foundations of what you thought were.

One of the things that is very common is to go through several stages of emotions in the early stages of trauma and shock. these are:-

  • Shock
  • Disbelief
  • Highly emotional
  • Rationalization of ones emotions and feelings
  • Denial
  • Anger
  • Making excuses for the experience
  • Trying to downplay the experience
  • Acceptance
  • Victim mentality
  • Survival mentality
  • Relieving the experience in your mind

The range of emotions that you may experience due to your situation or circumstance will assist you in journeying through a variation of these emotions and you may bounce around different ones at any different times, the last stage is anger and then you find a place of acceptance.

Heartbreak and is one of the most painful things, there is even heartbreak in the loss experience, it is not unknown for couples whom have been together for long periods of time to lose their other partner to find themselves in a situation where they have not long followed.  It is extremely important not to rush the healing process of heartbreak and loss, it is a very unique grief journey that is unique to each and every individual.

It is important to take one day at a time as you allow yourself to heal and get to a place where finally you get to a place of acceptance, listen to your soul, your mind and spirit and you will know when you have taken the lesson and be able to turn it into a blessing.  For everything that we do experience in the theme of dark chocolates gives us an opportunity for growth, even if you do wear the experiences of that experience for many years to come.

Be kind to yourself, be kind to your heart and soul as you heal.

With love & light, Susan xx

Sensory Overload

I have been thinking about sensory overload, we live in a very fast paced World, not only in an every day sense of activity but in the form of social media.  Its addictive, this social media lark, it becomes the norm to our day, the norm to our routine, perhaps there is a fear of missing out, something interesting, something juicy, something that one can respond too. Everything is so fast paced, life has truly picked up a pace, everything at our
disposal so to speak. thZR42PH4N
Today I am feeling overloaded in a sensory way, noise, words, activity.  Sometimes regeneration and having a period of quiet time is essential for the well-being of our soul.
Being a Woman who is very much aware of my surroundings and who and what is around, also sensitive in the things that are not said, sometimes for those of us who are HSP (Highly Sensitive Persons) it can all feel a little too much, sometimes I go into observation mode.  There is a lot to be learned in this, so much actually in that sometimes the inaction, silence speaks for itself, people reveal a lot about themselves, me included even in the sense of inactivity.  I do find people rather fascinating.
Sometimes having a little quiet time is so good for the soul, so therapeutic, regenerative.  I can often tell when I feel overloaded I become irritated and snappy.  What I am aware of though is my choices in these moments.  But having said that the realization that we are all spiritual beings having a human experience and who the hell is perfect anyway, perfection is but an illusion of the MIND.
We are bombarded with information day in and day out that our brains are overly stimulated, I relish the moments where I can be in the soft glow of candle light and a sensory smell of natural aromatherapy, oh so soothing, oh so therapeutic.  Right at this present moment, I have very little sound around me, well it is much quieter than it was earlier, with a soft glow light on, it feels so soothing.
Sometimes it is also helpful not to THINK, but just allow ourselves to be STILL in the moment.  Often the sound of ones own breathing and the sound of stillness is just soothing, almost like a blanket around you, snuggled and warm offering comfort in the time of need.  If you are anything like me, you will know when you need a soothing sense of stillness.  The key though is being around like minded people who understand it.  Sometimes it is equally as pleasant to be in a room with someone whom you have an affinity with and not say a word, just their mere presence is enough and vice versa, sometimes just the closeness is sufficient.
I do not know what compelled me to write this today, but I have flowed with my inner guidance and just gone with it.
So on this note where are you in the feeling of sensory overload? Are you in tune with your innermost guidance, it is truly a powerful source of inspiration, guidance.  Truly, tap in, try it.
Love & Light Susan xxx
