Living in a world where it is a courageous act to be yourself!

Thinking this morning how shallow and superficial some aspects of this world can be, but in essence it is not the World, it is the acts, values and belief systems that are actually shallow and superficial, in my opinion.

It feels like we are measured in terms of our monetary success, the clothes we wear, the way we look, how much we achieve.  With this mentality constantly being the driving force, it is no wonder there is a perception view and mindset that to view anyone who shares simplistic values and beliefs to be an odd ball.

My thinking is that it is actually the eccentrics, the odd balls, the geeks, the nerds, the different do actually achieve but perhaps in a more subtle quieter way than shouting to the rooftops look at me, look what I have achieved every step of the way.

When you finally get to a place where you can sit comfortably in your soul, sit comfortably with your quirks, with your failings, with your positives and with yourself simply as you are, I feel your soul has gotten to a place of acceptance!

It is when you get to a place of celebrating yourself, without the driving force and need of approval of others, is when you have found a quiet place of yes I have arrived.  I feel that, the beauty about the souls journey, and each will arrive at their own destination, in their own time, in their own unique way, is when you get there, you get there, it does not matter how long it takes, but that you get there.

So today I stand in celebration of being in a place of celebration of being my own SHERO and honouring all what has been achieved in my own quiet way and in my own unique way.  I hope that you see that all what you too have achieved, even in the smallest of baby steps without the extra added aspects of viewing from a perspective of money, materialism, ego or having the need to be perfect.  You simply are a success in your own right, the baby steps accumulate to the greater whole.

Celebrate you as you are, I do and my soul feels a place of inner peace at just that.

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

Don’t Relinquish Your Power to appease others.

I asked for guidance for the day today and the card that came up was Don’t Relinquish Your Power, I recently witnessed some negative comments on my blogs recently.  You see when you do have a light that shines, some may desire to come along and dull your shine.

What there is a failing to understand is that behind the scenes know one knows exactly what goes into ones private work, the sacrifices, the drive, the determination, the motivation to keep it going, and then someone chooses to come along and try to dull your shine.  My blogs are not for everyone, but they are for whose soul resonates with the messages, the posting and the topic and content.  I shall continue with what I believe to be my soul’s call and continue.

The key principles of today’s card is to as where are you taking a back seat?  in doing so not only are you doing a disservice to your souls call, you are doing a disservice to your soul family too, everyone in principle has their own unique light that emanates from their soul as their birth right, anyone who wishes to come along and pick and criticize what you are called to do, remember this is their projection, their insecurity, many will try to take your unique power away to build themselves up, so that they appear more superior and deflect away from their own shortcomings, this is usually as a result of a fragile ego.

So today’s message is Do Not Dull Your Shine At The Expense Of Others, for it is their projections, perceptions and insecurities that are coming to the fore, usually I have found what is projected onto “other” is usually mirrored in the person that is making the projections.  Do not allow yourself to engage in attempts to manipulate.

“A flower does not compete with another flower, it simply grows”.

Never feel afraid to SHINE like the beautiful diamond that you are, for know one knows how you got to where you are, what it took and what you have to go through to continue.

Stay blessed, stay loving and understand that there is a reason for everything.
