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.

22/03/2018 – Today’s message – The Universe has your back!

Good Morning all,

I hope that this Thursday finds you well after hopefully a good nights rest!

I shuffled my deck today and asked for today’s guidance card, and the card that came up states this, “Hope is the conduit for miracles” now there is a word that is always useful to hang onto and that this “Hope”

It is a word with a feeling that you can always hang onto in times of need, in real times of adversity, the hope that there is always potential for change.

Hope is the gateway to possibility and to potential for the future. Allow yourself to hang on to Hope Is The Conduit For Miracles and always believe that there is potential for change.

Have a great day.

With love & light, Susan xx20180322_100913.jpg

Today’s Universe has your back message 20/3/20-18

Good Morning,

I hope that this morning has found you feel refreshed after a good night’s sleep, if not, I hope that you manage to get through your day.

In the usual manner I asked for Universal guidance for the day today and the card that literally jumped out as I was shuffling was

“My vibes speak louder than my words” they do indeed, sometimes we do not even have to speak, there is an undertone of ones energy, vibe that is just part of who we are.

Allow your vibe to speak louder than words, with love, truth and integrity and respect to yourself and respect to others, yes it may all sound wishy washy to some, but it is I believe what we give out, we get back.

I am also a great believer that our vibe attracts our tribe.

I hope that where you are in your life you do feel a sense of contentment, inner peace and a sense of satisfaction?

If not, you can always go back to the drawing board and start again, knowing that nothing is ever a mistake and is all part of the greater plan for your souls growth.

Have a blessed, positive Tuesday in its unfolding.

Today’s Universe has your back message 19/3/2018

Good Morning all,

I requested a card this morning and the card that came up was the one shown below, you see when you allow yourself to open up your heart chakra and open your heart to give and receive love in the various forms it can happen you open yourself up to warmer connections.

It is easy to feel jaded from love’s life experiences but if you can keep holding on to the fact that YOU yourself are love and that the very essence of love is you first and foremost loving yourself enough to let go of anything that may be jading your experiences with others, there is no doubt that hurt and pain in relation to your personal experiences exist, feelings of hurt, feeling let down when things go wrong, but if you can come from a place of reminding yourself that we are all doing the best that we can, in what can feel a challenging world, also remembering that everyone expresses their emotions differently.

If you can ground yourself in the power and knowledge that the biggest emotional power and force there is, is LOVE, and that when you give yourself the power to lean towards this power of Love you are lead to a warmer brighter future.  This starts with acceptance of what you do not have the power to change, what you do have the power to change, and to realize that you do have a choice how to respond.  Just because something may not have worked out, does not make it bad, what makes it a challenge is the approach that may have taken place and how this manifested, even in that situation, scenario, both parties have a responsibility to respond in a way that they choose.

So today’s message is even when life may have given you a challenge in relation to some real emotional hurts and deep stuff, still allow yourself to believe in the power of love, lean towards this energy, and then you will be led, for it is far easier to generate energy towards this emotion and feeling rather than the lower vibration of hate.

Wishing all a beautifully blessed and positive Monday and week ahead.

Compassion goes a long way, to others, to self!

Hi there,

My thoughts turn to Compassion today, compassion goes a very long way in a World that can feel unfeeling at times, you just never truly know how much you holding out your hand in compassion will impact another.  For you see many suffer in silence, sometimes the silence is out of not wanting to be a burden to others, not wanting to show vulnerability, not wanting to admit to others that one simply isn’t coping with what one may be going through.  Over the years since I have been on Facebook, since 2009, I have seen only too well the posts that do get a response, and the posts that usually get a response are the negative posts and real life posts, you see human nature can respond to these type of posts, so I wanted to draw reference to the word Compassion today, I have been thinking about it for a couple of days now.

So what is Compassion? what exactly is it, a definition I have pulled up from Wikipedia is this;

Compassion motivates people to go out of their way to help the physical, mental or emotional pains of another and themselves. Compassion is often regarded as having sensitivity, an emotional aspect to suffering, though when based on cerebral notions such as fairness, justice, and interdependence, it may be considered rational in nature and its application understood as an activity also based on sound judgment. There is also an aspect of equal dimension, such that individual’s compassion is often given a property of “depth”, “vigour”, or “passion”. The etymology of “compassion” is Latin, meaning “co-suffering.” Compassion involves “feeling for another” and is a precursor to empathy, the “feeling as another” capacity for better person centred acts of active compassion; in common parlance active compassion is the desire to alleviate another’s suffering.  So here it is in a nutshell.

How much compassion do you display to your friends, family, those in need? is there tolerance for their plight and for their suffering? or do you get fed up if there is repetition of the same story?

Well you see the real essence is that progress and growth in terms of human suffering is I believe at the root of attachment, which in essence is human nature, we all get attached to something, someone and this is the very nature of human nature, can you imagine if we didn’t? how unfeeling would we really be, terribly cold I imagine.  But there is one thing that comes to mind in the theme of human suffering is that suffering is a journey, just as grief, loss and detaching yourself from something, it is a journey, it takes time to untangle, to process, to understand, to digest, to get to a place where all of the varying emotions become bearable and no longer feel overwhelming, so imagine how it feels to go through a process of suffering, whether this be from life’s experiences, personal loss, addictions, trauma, it takes time, the journey to healing does not happen overnight, oh no.

So if you see someone within your peripheral circle who needs some support, reach out your hand in compassion to see if you can offer support, you may not be able to take their pain away, their suffering away, but just reaching out and being there, may mean so much, and it just may make a difference to their lives.  We all need to feel loved, appreciated, cared for and that we matter, even though the real essence is not seeking validation outside of ourselves, or from others, but it does make a difference to our feeling of interdependence to know and to feel that someone does care.

You just never know how much of an impact that may have on another’s emotional, spiritual well-being.

And also remember too, lastly, if compassion does not include yourself, it isn’t compassion. compassion600.jpg

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.

Allowing Your Inner Child a time to play

When was the last time you played like a child, with the same innocence, what promotes that feeling for you, is it Music, being in good company where you feel comfortable, where you feel a sense of joy, there is definitely a lot to be said for feeling comfortable with your soul tribe and comfortable in your own skin.

That feeling of joy at being able to express yourself both creatively, musically, artistically and from a deep place of allowing your spirit to be completely free, uninhibited, there have been a few moments that have really stood out for me in this regard, that feeling of pure laughter that comes from a deep place, a pure place, a place of unconditional love a place where there was pure laughter, joy, fun and it is a memory that doesn’t go.

What can you put in your bank and book of memories, allow time to play, allow time to skip, sing at the top of your lungs, dance to the rhythmaustin-schmid-37423.jpg of the music even if you feel you don’t have any.  There is nothing nicer than feeling a sense of pure euphoric joy in that moment of pure play and innocence, you see we forget when we become adults sometimes to do just that.

All work and no play can make us very dull boys and girls indeed 🙂

its playtime.

Allowing a space for vulnerability to shine through from an authentic place.

I just had some thoughts after seeing a meme that really resonated with me this morning, it spoke volumes in its raw truth and it got me thinking about creating a space for vulnerability from an authentic place and what can stop this from happening.

First and foremost allowing yourself to be vulnerable is a risky thing right? it does take courage to expose yourself, from an observational point of view and viewing society as a whole, and through the lens of perhaps some would say a little cynicism, we do live in a society where we are conditioned to keep a tight lid on our emotions.  I have always maintained that doing such is not conducive to a healthy mental and emotional state, suppression of such only adds to inner turmoil, I feel. But what are the very things that can stunt the process of allowing emotional vulnerability?, I have identified a few and these are as follows:-

  • A fear and inability to effectively deal with conflict
  • A fear of being judged
  • A fear of ones vulnerability being taken for a weakness
  • Not feeling safe in the relationship to express ones vulnerabilities in the first instance
  • Cultural considerations
  • Gender considerations
  • Denial
  • Using Alcohol and Drugs to stunt emotional expression

These are just a few, so where do we draw the line? and how?

There is something refreshing about being given an opportunity to truly feel another persons emotions, even in their raw truth state, even if we get to hear something that can feel a little uncomfortable to hear, it is better to be comforted with the truth, than with a lie, don’t you agree?

But consider for a moment some of the reasons above why this may not be happening.  I have come to realize over a passage of time and through the years, that whilst you may feel comfortable with exposing your truth, it does not always mean that “other” is comfortable.  Having said this though there is something that can be said when dealing with polar opposites, an effective communicator v another who perhaps finds it a challenge and does not feel comfortable, safe, or ready.  I do believe that every connection that we encounter serves its own soul purpose, sometimes each one teach one, and sometimes it may just be to highlight an area for another soul to address that they may not have felt ready, nor willing to confront.  I am also a great believer that the Universe provides opportunities for growth, perhaps where we procrastinate, hide behind or do not feel ready to deal with, it has a way sometimes of catapulting us to take control of our wheel and deal with it, via a situation, circumstance or scenario that forces us in a position where we no longer have a choice.

There is absolutely no doubt exposing your innermost feelings, emotions, truths is “Risky” but so is not exposing how you feel which can lead to feelings of resentment, frustration, anger, projection, deflection and avoidance of the truth.

The only true way that we can merge truthfully with others is to own our truth, speak it, show it, but there is absolutely no guarantee that “other” will behave, nor act in the same manner, in truth we can only ever be responsible for what we choose to do, we do not really have a say in what “other” chooses to do.

Another consideration is about being in soul alignment with another, it takes time to actually realize whether this is the case, the kindest thing that can be achieved upon the realisation that this is not the case is learning to let go, this serves a great purpose for both, as the old saying goes, “The Truth Shall Set You Free”.

Happy expressing, what do you really have to lose.

Have a great day. In love & Light, Susan xx

Is your Jar Half Full or Half Empty!

Revisiting an earlier theme of the jar, where one puts into it all of the positive blessings one has received throughout the year, it was so uplifting to go through it at the end of the year on NYE, write down all of the positive things, the accomplishments, the gifts received, it really helps put a perspective on viewing ones jar half full rather than half empty.

Humaness at least that is what I call it, is the capacity to ebb and flow like the waning moon in ones thoughts, feelings and emotions, sometimes we can feel a little bogged down, well at least I know I can get moments of feeling a little so so, ones vibration feels a little low, sometimes for reasons we know, sometimes inexplicable, anyone that states they are positive and grinning 24/7 and 365 days of the year, in my personal opinion is a little rather “unrealistic” shall we say, we do have to address the moments of both feeling uplifted, bright, perky, happy, buoyant against the feelings of feeling a little sad, low and lacking in energy.  This is where strategies to uplift come into it, strategies to uplift, like my earlier post of looking for the sun amongst the clouds.

You will be surprised just how much your soul feels great at the end of the year going through your jar to discover that you actually achieved so much more in one year than you had anticipated, you had been acknowledged more than you realised, you had been loved more than you realised, human nature is often to focus on the negative, we have been conditioned in matters of cynicism and20180209_170558 subliminal negative messages, so it is all to easy to tap into what is not working, rather than what IS.

So I thought I would share your Half Full Jar, you can label it whatever you like, call it what you like, put in it whatever you like, just as long as at the end of the year you have something to look back and view it with a smile on your face and saying to yourself, that year was a good year after all 🙂 remember we have to create our own Sunshine, it is our responsibility, know one else’s, only we are responsible for how we feel, what we do and how we choose to respond.

In love & Light
