Divine Message 08/08/2018 – An opportunity to Forgive! Lions Gateway 08/08/8

Good Morning, Good Morning, Good Morning,

Happy Wednesday in its unfolding, may it be a beautiful day, lets hope so.

The Lions Gateway, what is that?? you may be asking, it happens on the 8th of August (8th month) and this year is 2018 (whereby the 8 is significant) it is a time whereby there is increased cosmic energy aligned with the physical realm.  Have you noticed it? some who are open to this spiritual concept will be more in tune, and those who are on a different alignment will not notice, everyone reaches their spiritual alignment, if it is their choosing in their own time.

The Lions Gateway is associated with the Heart centre and is an expression to the Divine. Plus there are currently 5 planets in Retrograde which means (going backwards) and this in conjunction with this powerful energy, plus we have recently had a super moon eclipse the energies surrounding the cosmos are quite powerful at present, with lots of ship shaping going on.

So it is no surprise that today’s divine message is indicative of “Forgiveness”  it speaks of an opportunity to forgive, many are of the view that to forgive means that you allow the behaviour off the hook, that you condone the behaviour and actions, a reminder that it isn’t possible for you to be responsible for someone else’s behaviour or actions, you can only ever be responsible for you own.  Forgiving someone is actually about YOU, rather than them.

When you allow yourself to forgive you set your soul free, you remove the angst, the discord the emotional upset, those feelings of hanging on, because you haven’t forgiven, you allow it all a space to be set free.  In doing so, you give your soul a space for new growth, a new lease of life, as you no longer allow the very act/s or behaviours of the hurt you experienced a place and expression in your heart and soul.

Imagine how liberating to your heart and soul that would be!

So today, if you have been hanging on to a transgression, holding on to hurt from pain that you have experienced, view it from a place of What was the lesson? what have I learnt? what opportunities has it given me? where have I grown? and where are there areas that I still need to develop and grow?

When you let go you give your heart and soul a place of love and compassion, you set yourself free, it is about YOU, not “other”.   The only person you hurt by hanging on, is YOU.

So today on this Lions Gateway day, which is powerful in its essence, “let go and forgive”

I SET MYSELF FREE WHEN I FORGIVE!

In love & light, Susan xxx

Divine Message 05/08/2018 – A place of calm, a place to regroup – PEACE

Good Morning, Good Morning, Good Morning,

Happy Sunday, a blessed and beautiful day to you as it unfolds in its joy.

Today’s message speaks of regrouping yourself, grounding yourself in the beautiful element of Water, there is nothing more healing than the sound of water, the feel or water and the sThight of water, it is powerful in its rejuvenating properties, in its healing properties.

If you cannot get near water today, try a visualisation exercise of imagining yourself near your favourite beach, hear the sounds, smell the smell, touch the water, and sit and bask in it, with a Sun or moon that glistens in its wake, hold that vision for some time as you breath in deeply and breathe out deeply, imagine all of your stresses melting away, falling away and no longer attaching themselves to your energy, it is gone.

The greatest Gift is being able to stay calm in among chaos, tension and stress, there is beauty in this, there is grounding in this, and it means that you are in your driving seat.

Have a blissful day visualising, being and knowing that whatever troubles you may be experiencing, they are temporary, for they too change like the seasons.

In love & Light, Susan xxx

Another cycle ends – transformation and connecting with my feelings associated.

#It’s an inside journey#

It seems lately there is less time to write as much as I used to be able too.  I find myself feeling emotional today, as I am coming to an end of another cycle, what is it about endings that evoke so much emotion, even knowing that every ending is going to open a new doorway.  An example I can think of, is this, ending a relationship that is negative, dysfunctional and has evoked negative emotions associated, one would imagine that one would feel “Happy” and yet the feelings that arise, are feelings of loss, and then there is the cycle of emotions that give rise to grieving.  This is an example to understand.

I say goodbye this week to a role that has come to completion for 2 years, it has been an experience of both positive and negative, positive because of the connections made, the laughter, the giggles, connecting with new people, being able to be a listening ear to those that have needed it, even being a listening ear to those who have projected their anger, because of the space that they were in at the time.  The negative the demands on the physical and emotional body.  I feel it is now time to close that door and say “Goodbye and “Thank you” for the journey, the experience, the highs and the lows.  But isn’t it amazing how closing doors, brings you closer to your emotions of loss, from previous doors that you have closed, or in some cases, closed because you had no choice, because closure may not have been completely possible.

I have just finished today, my 2nd job for the week, this will end next month, it is time for a new chapter, new beginnings, and even knowing that this will usher in new growth, I cannot help but feel a tinge of emotions, like awww, it feels a little sad, it has reminded me of other losses.  You see my viewpoint is this, that in this life, this fast paced western world we are so very busy pressing on, not giving ourselves time to process our emotions, our feelings associated with whatever we may be experiencing that we can if not careful walk around like we are “dead” emotionless, unfeeling, detached from our inner core emotions, and that in my mind is not good for the Mind, Body nor the Spirit.

I understand for many a feeling person who is in touch with their emotions, can feel too intense for many who choose to lock their emotions away, detach from them, store them in a box, never to open Pandora’s box until “Spirit” or the “Universe” decide to give you a situation or scenario, whereby you have to revisit, can you imagine for a moment that had you have had the courage, foresight and strength to initially allow yourself to tap into your emotions for each given situation, circumstance or event at that moment in time, what you would have been saving yourself from re-visiting later? Its true so much we would have saved ourselves if we had the courage to deal with it “NOW”

So today, I am feeling a little full of mixed emotions as I say goodbye to one chapter this month, then another chapter next month, when for the last 3 years I have been struggling with coming to terms and accepting a real big chapter and cycle in my life that was to be my biggest challenge emotionally yet, confronting, the face of what felt like “Death” “Loss” “Rejection” and feeling unworthy.

I have worked hard to claw my way back up from the very bottomless pit of the rabbit hole, and believe you me, there are moments when there is a trigger such as a loss, or a transition, that sets me back briefly, just momentarily to remembering where I have come from and where I have been.

Today, has felt a deeply moving day emotionally, the past 4 years have been hard as I have been working on my business this business and in the moments of healing, working with depression, counselling, past life regression to look at patterns that I may have been repeating, and allowing myself to be defined by how others have chosen to treat me, and what I have allowed in that process, has been deep.  So now couple with the wisdom of a mother who has raised 3 children to adulthood, who has experienced, many deaths, many failures, many rejections, many challenges, I can honestly say that as I sit back I can actually say, Susan, you really ought to be proud of yourself.

You see the greatest Teacher that we have is not Education, is not text book theories, no ideologies, not philosophies, but simply “Life experiences” and the pain associated with such.  Along with life experiences, pain is our greatest Teacher, for in this we are confronted with our weaknesses, confronted with our strengths, with our boundaries, with what we will accept and what we won’t and we are too faced with our vulnerabilities, we are stripped away of all ego facets of our soul and character and then once the unveiling takes place, we are confronted with a fresh new childlike new beginning on which to transmute all of the learning that has been gleaned from the whole journey;

I am proud to say that I am now much more accepting, comfortable with loss and transformation than I have ever been, even allowing myself to visit the emotions associated with the changes that take place.  Today I was given some feedback on my Group that I run on Facebook, and to me it was one of my most powerful messages that I have received, for believe me in the moments that I have doubted myself, in that journey of allowing myself to be defined by what I felt was a rejection of me, and a rejection of me not being good enough, I received affirmation and confirmation that the whole ethos of my Group Spiritual Reflections & Thoughts.  The Journey that it is successful and it does make a difference, and believe you me in the moments when I doubted myself, my souls call and who I was, who I am, I nearly called the whole lot in.  I tried a few times, but was told by Facebook that the page was of value to its followers and they would not let me close it, this coupled with today’s message has indicated to me that I am a powerful, strong woman who has been to hell and back and has risen.  As in the voice of Maya Angelou, I share a symbolism of who I can identify with,

Still I Rise

Maya Angelou1928 – 2014

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops,
Weakened by my soulful cries?

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own backyard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.

Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.

My spirit got broken, but not my essence, that can never be taken away for it sits in the well of my soul and comes to my aid in real times of need.

 

“And Still I Rise” and in doing so I have learnt so much about me, and what I am capable of.  Thank you for the lessons, that have enable to me to view them in the mirror of

reflection. photo-1438762398043-ac196c2fa1e7

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 – 7/4/2018 – I Surrender

Good Morning all, Happy Saturday

hope that you have had a good start to the weekend thus far.  As I sit here quietly in these early hours of this morning, I shuffled my Universe Has Your Back Deck and felt drawn to the card “I Surrender”  what does this actually mean?

Do you feel that if you surrender it is a sign of weakness? I certainly don’t, over the years of experience and wisdom I certainly have come to realise when to surrender and when not too.

There is definitely something to be said for an inner sense of knowing when to surrender and when to hold on, in particular to viewing it from a perspective of what you can and cannot control, this I have found helps in making any decision.

I remember something from years ago from a meme, we fight to hold, we fight to let go, so as I sit here pondering this morning’s intuitive message this is what is coming up, where is there a need for you to let go? surrender!!

It does not mean weakness, it just simply put you are reserving your energy for where you are able to put it to best use.

There is also something to be said for when you release any form of attachment, expectation to an outcome you give it space to find its way, you free yourself up to be able to utilise the energy of trying to control something to being put to good use.

So today’s message is ” I Surrender To A Power Greater Than Me” trusting that whatever it is that you need to surrender too will either guide you to what is meant, or release you from what isn’t.

Have a great Saturday as it unfolds in it’s day.

With Love & Light, Susan xx20180407_055304.jpg

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

Today’s Universe Has Your Back Message – 30/3/2018 –

Happy Easter Weekend All,

May it be filled with Love, Joy, Peace and Blessings.

In the usual manner I drew a card for today and the card that came up was as follows:-

20180330_132332.jpg

The message is this that any form of Attack, Pain, Fear Judgement are separations from “Self” and these are merely signals and signs that require healing.

Ask yourself where are you holding on to Fear, Pain, Judgement, where are you attacking others? or even yourself?

We all know that inner critic voice that can sometimes give us a hard time if we let it too.  Where are you showing up with these emotions, remembering too that none of them are bad, they just are, but the truth is what you choose to do with these emotions and how you allow them to manifest.

Where do you need to be kinder to yourself? where do you need to be kinder to others? What is it that you need to let go of.  Coincidentally it is a Full Moon tomorrow, Saturday 31st March 2018 and this is a Blue Moon Rising plus a big solar shift which is actually creating a great deal of tension within everyone’s psyche’s, so hang on in there and I am positive that soon there is going to be a shift, plus we are coming out of a Mercury Retrograde at the end of this month, in the meantime, hang onto your hats for a little longer.

Have a great Easter weekend for those who celebrate, walk from a place of Love and if you aren’t feeling quite so, perhaps a little bit of inner reflection may be a good thing.

With love & light Susan xxx

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.

In love & light, Susan xxx20180319_072237.jpg

Turning Loss into a learning experience.

As I sat quietly this morning, baking and listening to my usual beautiful Calm Zen Radio, I sat with my deck of cards and asked for today’s guidance.  The card that came up is called “Death Is An Illusion” now for western ways this may sound morbid, touching base with such a subject.  I will always feel that the British western ways of dealing and handling loss, death is to remain in a sense of denial with a stiff upper lip.  But with other cultures they actually embrace death, loss as a passageway.  Someone needs to hear this message today, so I am going to go with its message.

This card talks of death being a physical vessel which exists.  That there is a beginning, middle and an end to every life form, whether this is measured in minutes, days, or decades.  It is the nature of the molecules of this earthly planer to have an end date, this is the natural state, this is something that we all do have a guarantee of, and know of.

The death of the conscious energy (or soul) of the vessel, however is an illusion.  But because it can’t be seen or measured and because there are no instruments to detect it, many humans question the ability of the consciousness to survive the death of the vessel.  Just because the limitations of the brain aren’t able to explain the intricate dance between the physical dimension and the spiritual dimensions does not negate its existence.

Spiritual form uses “Death” as a tool, and it then manifests itself in the emotional expression as grief.  This card has been drawn because there may be a need to let go and have some assistance with feelings of loss.  Everything comes to its natural end.  Humans, Animals die, relationships and careers end, but the courageous, strong and full of wisdom are those that are able to transcend any pain of loss into a positive and draw reference from what once was in that moment of time.  Grief is a very real emotion and needs to be felt, acknowledged, understood and validated for its very presence and essence, I liken it to the journey of at times grief being so desperately painful in that moment of mourning the loss of what once was, what one may have hoped for, for what might have been, for all the hopes, desires, expectations, dreams and emotions to no longer having it in a very real sense.  When we allow ourselves to truly touch base with the emotions of loss, mourning and letting go and then transcending all of those difficult emotions to a positive that is when we have allowed our soul to truly rise in the power of its truth, almost like the process and journey of the Phoenix rising from its ashes, there is so much learning when we allow ourselves to process and flow through the whole experience and come out of the other side. Know one said it is easy, going to be easy, or is easy, it is just a passageway to reach the full potential of the other side, taking the journey, the learning of letting go of any attachments that exist.

Helping others in times of grief is one of the most important lessens that we can give to humanity, there is something really soul deep when we are in pain and still having the capacity to rise up and support others, that is compassion at its highest form, grief is one of the most important events in a persons lifetime that the soul can experience.

You see spirit knows that the bonds of Love never truly die and that the souls who are no longer existing in a physical sense are more alive and with you that you may have thought possible whilst you reside in this dimension of Earth, it is your conscious mind that has the difficulty in accepting this fact.  The “Reunion” with your Spirit family is also an illusion because in truth you have never been separated, no amount of time, place nor distance will ever be able to discount the memories, the love, the joy, the feelings that existed when you were both together on this earth plane, and nothing will ever be able to change that.

Grief is a passageway and a gateway to truly learn the journey and the truth that separation is in the mind, and that in your soul the love still exists and always will.

If at any time your grief feels to much too overwhelming or perhaps it has taken you to a place where you are not able to move forward because you have become stuck in the emotions, feelings, thoughts and memories, do seek some professional counselling to support you to get through this, it is not a weakness but a beautiful strength to seek and ask for help when you soul truly needs it.

Remember you are always loved by who you have lost, or at least in your lifetime you were and that never changes.

In love and beautiful light.  Susan xxxxx
