Divine Message 16/08/2018 – Assertiveness – Where do you need to speak your Truth!

Good Morning, Good Morning, Good Morning all,

Wishing you a beautifully blessed Thursday in all that you do today!  It may be a little dismal outside, but you can create your own inner sunshine.

Today’s card speaks of Assertion, are you in a situation that requires you to speak your Truth? is there something that you may have been avoiding in vocalising?

It can feel hard at times to be assertive at times with matters of the heart, especially if conflict is something that you don’t like or aspire too. But sometimes when we speak our Truth it sets our soul free, it sets us free and other to make room for progress and both.

Of course that is on the precipice that you are given the opportunity and space, and vice versa to be able to do so, sometimes if there is a feeling of not feeling “Safe” to speak your Truth then it can be difficult.  Sometimes we may not always get the “Closure” that is desired and vice versa.  Trust though that the timing of and revelation of Truth is paramount, and I have learnt from experience that, the time does show up and enable you do do so, even if it is later on down the line.   The main thing though is being honest with yourself and asserting your truth where you can, when you do, it gives rise to the opportunity for change.

Sometimes we fear opening up and communicating our truth, and in reality sometimes it doesn’t turn out as bad as we had expected.

Keep sharing your authentic you, be assertive in who you are, without any apology.

In love & light, Susan xxx

Divine Message 13/08/2018 – “Listen”

Good Morning, Good Morning, Good Morning,

“Happy Monday”.

How has your weekend been? I do hope that it has been all that you desired and more, that you have gifted yourself some R&R, and the capacity to re-charge.  It is so essential to your well being.

Sometimes I don’t think we do enough of that, always rushing, here there, and everywhere.   Hardly stopping sometimes to eat, to take a break, there is only so much of this rushing around that you can do, before burn out sets in.

Today’s message ties in with these thoughts, how often do you allow yourself to be still and listen to your inner guidance, how often do you allow yourself to really quieten your racing mind, with thoughts, I got to do this, I got to do that, oh I must remember to do this, I must remember to do that.

Today’s message speaks of quieten your racing mind and allow yourself to feel reassured that all is in hand, by staying receptive to this intuitive guidance, spiritual guidance and trusting, grounding yourself, that all will be well, this can feel difficult to achieve if anxiety, worry and concern are prevalent, in your mind.  Especially if you are a person who is prone to worry, to feel that you must have everything under control.

Sometimes when things are falling apart, they are actually falling together.  How so? you may ask, because when things are falling apart, it means there is a process of elimination, the Universe is taking care of what isn’t fitting for your souls growth, and removing it, so that good things can fall together, does that make sense?

Try to quieten your racing mind filled with anxiety, concern and worry.  As I write, I too have a lot going on that is concerning, but I have been gifting myself the capacity to imagine myself as a very strong “rooted” oak tree that is standing firm, in the sway of strong winds, from Mother Nature.

I was gifted yesterday the capacity to be present in an hours meditation, and I have to say it was one of the most poignant, meditations that I have experienced, that will still present within my soul for a long time.

So today, I ask you to “Listen” to your inner guidance, to your sense of faith in you, your faith in whatever you choose to believe in, that all will be well, and if you find yourself among chaos and disorder, please remember that sometimes there needs to be a shuffling to remove what does not serve your souls individual growth.

Wishing you a beautiful Monday, in all that you do.

With Love & light, Susan xx

New Moon in Leo, Solar Eclipse 11/08/2018 – Out of the shadow and into the light.

Happy New Moon day,

it is a solar eclipse in the Astrological sign of Leo.  Leo’s are fabulous in their expression, they can be the fun and life and soul of the party, they are exuberant, flamboyant, gregarious and full of energy, on the plus side.  On the negative side they can be seen as arrogant and full of their own glory.  But in truth, isn’t that something that we are all capable of?

Many aspects of an individual’s astrological sign can be viewed in their positive or their negative, quite often, human nature tends to err on the side of the negative.  Sadly, but we need both aspects as part of our persona to exist and to encourage us of exactly where we need to strive and grow and work on, in our shadow aspects of our persona.

Today’s new moon is about addressing what comes up from our shadow selves, being aware of what is showing up and being present, working on this, this can be in terms of emotions, situations, circumstances or events.  It is super potent right now because we also have 5 planets in retrograde, so it is a super charged time.  Many emotions are coming up from people’s shadow selves.  Human nature has a tendency to deny its existence because it feels downright uncomfortable to imagine for one moment that one could feel some of the dark shadow aspects of ones soul, but these arise for a reason.

Quite often they are unhealed parts of ourselves that are being illuminated as a means of addressing aspects of our healing that need to be healed.  If you are a person who is becoming aware of your existence on a deeper level, you will understand.  If you are a person who isn’t on that level of understanding yet, it may feel alien and uncomfortable.

Today’s call is to address what is being revealed from the deeper aspects of your subconscious soul and shadow self.  Not always easy, not always comfortable, but think about it, do we grow when we are cosy, comfortable and complacent? NO, we don’t we grow when we are forced into a corner or suddenly we do not feel we have a choice.

Ask your Spirit Guides and Angels to help you illuminate and bring to light what is sitting within your subconscious soul as a means of moving forward and bringing this up and turning it into light.  There are so many things that you can do to channel any deep and negative emotions, sport, drawing, painting, singing, dancing, poetry, writing, blogging, sharing your truth with others, ( you never know who you will inspire).

Try not to resist the feelings, emotions associated, you don’t need to fix them, you don’t need to act on them, just become aware and be present in them, note them down and allow your soul and spirit to transform them through your intuitive guidance.

Don’t forget to allow yourself to set your intent of what it is that you desire to create in this new moon.  New Moon time is a time to set your intent for your next chapter prior to the next full moon, ask for what it is that your soul truly desires, and then believe that you are worthy to receive it, and if you are in alignment with your souls growth and the universe then all will be revealed.

Have a wonderful time manifesting your growth for your next chapter.

In love & light, Susan xxxx

Divine Message 09/08/2018 – It’s Playtime! “Play”

Good Morning, Good Morning, Good Morning,

Happy Thursday, I hope that you make it count and that you make it awesome, in your very own unique way.

How often do you actually Play? and I mean literally play! How often in the do you actually allow that little inner child out within you? I know I don’t as much as I used to, its seriously busy and seriously a lot is going on right now.  But it is important to make time for play.

To allow that little inner child within you out, that we so easily forget about in this thing called “Life” with big responsibilities, Jobs, Families, Children, Caring for others, being there for others, keeping the household running, studying, making ends meet, that it is important to play.

Also watch how is around you, watch who you are around, it works both ways, they say our vibe attracts our tribe, and yes I do believe that this is true.

But who brings you JOY, who brings you laughter, are the people around your circle able to uplift and make you laugh? if not, then maybe they are not your people, maybe in the scheme of things, the relationship may have gotten to a place of “outgrowing” and outgrowing is never a bad thing, nor the people that you have outgrown bad and vice versa, it is simply that both have gotten to a place where you are emerging and evolving differently.  You see life and its circle and relationships, friendships, family relationships, it’s like this.

So what brings you the capacity to PLAY for me it is music, dancing, singing, and being creative all of these things bring an immense level of JOY and lifts up my soul.

What do you do?

Are you playing enough?

Find things that truly bring you JOY, they might be:-

  • Playing fun filled games with the family
  • They may be running through water on the beach
  • Travelling
  • Music
  • Dancing
  • Photography
  • Small cosy Dinners with a handful of people you feel connected with
  • Dinner with a loved one bringing out your fun side and mischievous play side (when was the last time you did that)
  • A good belly laugh, the one where you feel like you are going to wet yourself, or your stomach hurts LOL

Whatever it is, ensure that whenever you can, you don’t forget to touch base with the little child that resides within YOU, for it is so easy to get caught up in “LIFE” and forget, it is going to be my scheduled play time this month, and boy am I looking forward to it.

Have a fabulous Thursday 🙂

In love & light Susan xxx

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 03/08/2018 – Healing Your Inner Child.

Good Morning, Good Morning, Good Morning,

I hope that you have had a good week so far!  Today’s card I feel is an interesting one,  Healing Your Inner Child”  Allow it to be felt, heard, validated and expressed.

How often do you allow your inner child a space to feel all of those things? to even be given a space for a little bit of fun or creativity.  We all know that adulthood is all about responsibility, maturity, being perceived as doing the right thing from the judgement of moral standards, or expectations of what an adult means, but where do you allow your inner child to express itself?

I watched an interesting video yesterday which indicates the very thing that compounds pain in adulthood and that is not healing our inner child if there has been trauma, challenges as a child when growing up, quite often not healing it can ripple and permeate into the very core of trying to become an adult, it has an impact on our relationships, friendships and also in general.

So where do you recognise, any trauma or healing within your inner child that may need attention?

Society I feel doesn’t encourage such reflection, it is usually only addressed in adulthood when an individual gets to a stage of catalyst and being forced into a situation of looking in the mirror that at times it may only then get addressed.

The important aspects of healing our inner child I feel are the following:-

  • Healing earlier childhood trauma, hurt, pain and experiences.
  • Learning to forgive those that have hurt you.
  • Learning to forgive yourself
  • Learning to get to a stage of integrating your inner child into adulthood
  • Allowing the expression of feelings of all that is associated emotionally, spiritually and mentally with your inner child.
  • Allowing for natural expression of your inner child, this can be through fun, creative expression, dance, communication, literature.

You see sometimes we forget to allow our “Inner Child” a place to have a little fun and to play, this is so important, as it gives the little person that is part of your inner you a space to feel honoured.

Have a great Friday, deep stuff, yes it is, but healing is, you don’t get to the root of healing by staying on the surface.

 

In love and beautiful light,

2/8/2018 Today’s Divine Message – Let go to prepare for a fresh new beginning!

 

Good Morning, Good Morning, Good Morning, wishing you a wonderful Thursday as the day unfolds.

Today’s Divine message speaks of two aspects, it is Time to go, a chapter in your life has now come to an end, a cycle has been completed.  A reminder that out of every ending a new beginning awaits, sometimes it can feel difficult to see that, as endings are never truly easy, but endings must take place for new cycles to begin.

“See the beauty within each sunset” with a sense of knowing that a brand new Sunrise beckons.

Try not allow fear to take hold in the corners of your mind, whether this be fear of rejection, fear that you are not good enough, fear that the ending that has taken place is a sign that you are not good enough, rather than internalize the ending as something you have done, see it as a cycle, and that the Universe is offering you a chance to “Grow” one simply cannot grow in a comfortable cosy place.

Step into your power and use the process of discernment to strip away anything that pulls or brings you down and focus on the things that uplift and bring you joy.

 

Wishing you a wonderful Thursday as your day unfolds, may it be all that you desire it to be and more.

 

With love

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

The energy of the “2”

Good Morning, Happy Summer Solstice,

The sun is shining, beaming and I feel that for many of us, its presence will lift up our energy.  The elements can do that can’t they!

Well today’s energy in terms of the date is a fabulous “2” in its duality, it denotes a sense of togetherness, working together, feminine in its principled energy, the letters B.K.T mean something, in its element its Yin.  The colours associated which are good for today are Orange, Salmon, Peach, Gold.

The stone associated is Moonstone.  The Tarot Card related is the High Priestess, oh my your intuition is going to feel high, high today, trust it, it has something to tell you.

I share with you today’s live video relating which has been shared on my facebook business page, Susan Lawrence Soul Coaching

Allow your soul to go where it feels celebrated!

Happy Sunday lunar time,

I have not long returned home from a jaunt in Manchester.  What has really struck a chord with me is how beautiful it can be to get away and have a change of scenery.  I have been feeling of late it is all work, work, work and very little change, so I set about creating the change I desired and went away for the weekend to a music event where I could set my soul free through dance and music, so freeing, so liberating and so regenerative.

You see when you become mindful of your life its content, its workings both from an inner and outer perspective you do recognize what needs to be shifted, I did.  Right now as I write I am listening to 432 Hz Binaural Beats music and it is really doing wonders for my soul.

You see you can too be the change you desire, where do you see an imbalance in your life? what do you feel isn’t quite working? feeling quite right? sitting quite right? what do you feel you can do to change that?

Reflect!!

It struck a chord with me that we can go anywhere where our soul feels celebrated, you see our soul family come in many shapes and forms, earth angels, spiritual angels, spirit guides, ancestors, work colleague, intimate relationships, siblings, children, friends, it is important to allow your soul to direct you to where you feel most celebrated, there is nothing more powerful than feeling a sense of oneness with another, despite the resistance, we all do crave this, its human, it a necessary component of feeling a sense of belonging.  Whilst at the same time, if you have gotten to a stage of feeling comfortable with your aloneness, this sets you in a good place.  A healthy place, a place where that interdependence is not born out of need but a simple desire, the two are intrinsically different.

Be thankful the moments where you feel at one with another, or others for that too is a gift, when you feel a sense of acceptance, when you feel a sense of joy, a sense of love, and a sense of just being able to be you, how beautifully soul powerful is that.

So please do become aware of where your soul feels celebrated, it saves you wasting precious energy on connections that are not good for your soul and vice versa.

Go where you feel celebrated, for this too is a gift.

In love & light, Susan xxxx
