Once again the news is full of unsettled energy. It’s time to wave goodbye to one head of state and say hello to the next one. Not here in the UK but across the pond in the USA. I usually ignore politics because the truth is very hard to find.
Yet as we wave goodbye to 2016 we are looking at a very different global set up arriving in 2017. The issues arising on the global stage are based on claim, counter-claim and counter-counter claim. I find it hard to believe anything at the moment as so much gossip, scare-mongering and aggressive gaslighting is flying around. But I also notice the same energy is around at a UK or local level. Wave after wave of reports about the NHS in crisis, denials, hard or soft Brexit, digging for personal dirt about leaders and the knotty issue of immigration. Where is the truth in all of this.
Of course I know that there are always more than two or three sides to every situation. But I also know that in trying to unravel what the issues are we get lost in a wave of ‘only my view is right’ statements. As if there was one ultimate truth but it only belongs to the viewpoint of one person. I’m a great believer in the truth will out. It was one of my Nanna’s sayings. I heard it a lot as a little girl. It was her response when she knew she wasn’t getting the whole story from someone. And that’s how I feel 2016 has left us. At all levels not knowing what it’s all about.
The wave that is racing towards us now feels like it will wash away all the false fronts I see around us. In fact our only way of making meaningful changes in 2017 will be to get to the heart of the issues that face us as global citizens.
But I feel it’s only fair to point out that those issues arise close to home too. Not only in some place a couple of thousand miles away. In another community or country. The issues are within each one of us. I like to believe that I’m full of love and light. I know that’s not true. It isn’t true because I’m a human being. I am light and shade. There are good days and not so good days. I am affected by the waves of energy flowing in our global community too. That’s why it’s hard to see how our world leaders behave. To notice all of the hidden agendas. And to see the truth only presented when they have been caught in the act.
My Guides set me an enormous challenge when they made themselves present in my life. They knew it would take me a lot of soul searching. That perhaps at times I would want to give up and go back to a fake reality. But they have stood by my throughout. I have learned not to judge, gossip, spread roumours, lie, flatter, dismiss or disrespect. Firstly myself. Then other people. On a good day I can keep that wave of spiritual behaviour going. On a less good day I get soaked by the spray. Occasionally I emerge half drowned. Once or twice I’ve thought I had died. Or at least moved so far away from my spiritual life that I was as good as dead.
So how do I keep going? What can I do in 2017 to help the truth emerge?
I’ve been thinking about this whilst I’ve been doing my healing work today. It starts with me aiming for more good spiritual days than not. Of removing myself from energy that carries with it negativity. I avoid gossip anyway. So I’ll keep on doing that. Looking behind what I’m hearing and seeing, I’m going to keep searching for the truth of all situations. I’m determined to send out as much healing as possible. To the planet, the animal kingdom and to every single person here on Mother Earth. I include myself in that. Along with the wish for everyone to be well I’m sending positive energy to generate hope and peace.
In 2017 I’m also going to move through my life with as much positivity as I can muster. With an attitude of wellbeing rather than ‘dis-ease’. Thinking well of myself and everyone else as much as I can. Letting everyone voice their truth and looking for the good inside the words. Doing the best I can to be all that I can be. Hello 2017!
Day 423 of my blogging challenge.
The last few hours of 2016 are fading away. I’m happy and excited to be moving into a new year. I have my Tarot cards ready to do a little reading for myself. I can’t resist a sneak peek at the energy flowing into my life.
Whilst 2016 has been more of a challenge than I ever expected I also know that I’m ending it feeling happy. So many of my fears have been met and walked through this year. I’ve survived and learned a lot about myself. I have some outstanding achievements that I’m very proud of. And I am ready for all sorts of new beginnings. It doesn’t matter if anyone else knows what they are. I know what I’ve been able to do and that’s all that matters.
So what about next year? It’s so close now it’s breathing down my neck. I know there will be a lot of unexpected things but that’s life anyway. It’s about how I approach what happens. So I’m very clear that my year is going to be a happy one. I’m open to and attracting the positive in. Welcoming every moment because it will be good. There is no room for doubt. Or worry. Or fear. What I focus on is what will happen and I only want the best for me any everyone else. So I have a little mantra for myself: Love, Peace, Happiness.
The power of positive thinking has been proved over and over again for me this year. Even when I was wobbly and finding it hard to be positive.
Putting as much of my energy into being happy as I could got me to recognise all the good things I already had. I realised that there is a solid foundation underpinning my life. It’s based on being happy. Because if I feel it I can give and receive it. My happiness is based on small moments, memories and gratitude. Things could have been so much worse. Best of all I know that I have my loved ones in Spirit, my Guides and the ArchAngels in my life too. They are a constant force for love.
They surround me when my head drops, they lift me when doubt rushes in and they guide me to be the best me I can be. I know I can’t please all of the people all of the time. Being of service is not about pleasing people. It’s about passing on the happiness and love as often and as much as possible. So I expect to be doing a lot more serving for Spirit in 2017. I’m excited at what that may mean because I know they always draw me to do the things I think I can’t. Then I surprise myself. And that is another thing that makes me happy. Sending you best wishes for a happy New Year and may 2017 bring out the best in you too ❤️
Day 412 of my blogging challenge.
I seem to have talked a lot about change this year. Especially since it has been a year of big changes. Today I thought about what has carried me through the challenges. It comes back to faith and hope.
Interestingly I was talking about hope this morning. I had a discussion about the way we enter each year with a long list of wishes and dreams but often find they don’t manifest. Later on I read and article that suggests Michelle Obama has said we are experiencing a time of hopelessness. Certainly this year has pushed all of us to face our fears. I know that the faith in the structures we live by has been fading for quite a number of years. Because it really is time for us to change the way our world is ordered.
Manifesting a new way is going to be a challenge. I see how stuck some people are. It is hard to move from what I know to what is yet unclear. With all my faith and hope in the Universal Divine flow of love I still struggle. So what about those people who haven’t reached the same understanding of manifesting peace as me? It certainly explains the flat feeling that is underneath all of the holiday energy. Yet I want to suggest that 2017 is bringing much moreover positive energy for all of us. It might feel hard to list your wishes and dreams but it is important to do so.
The future I want, and you want, can only come in if we ask for it. I know we have to back that asking with the faith that everything can be delivered.
Faith is such a hard thing to hang onto when the chips are down. I know this year I have had to work really hard to believe that what my intuition was telling me was correct. There were times when I felt lost in a thick fog. But also times of immense clarity. I’ve also had to wander around inside myself and measure how much faith I had in me. There have been plenty of wobbles. Yet talking today I realised how much I have returned to having faith in myself. Being tested is hard. But I now know I can go towards my dreams full of confidence that they will happen.
That has given me a huge blast of hope. Over this year my hope has played hide and seek. I’m usually an optimistic person. I’m so stubborn that I don’t like to be beaten by a problem. I always hope there is a positive solution to any issue. However several times this year I have had to dig my heels in to get me through disappointment, pessimism, an absence of all hope. It feels like I have been sharpening my sword of optimism. My hope can slice through any difficulty now. I have finally realised that whatever happens I have already faced the worst fears and got past them.
So I’m sending my New Year wishes out with the full backing of faith and hope. I know my dreams will be delivered to me in 2017. Is it time to send out your dreams?
Day 397 of my blogging challenge.
Well, it’s turning into an up side down week! The cosmic chaos of the next energy wave has already started to hit so I’ve very much been going with the flow.
Feeling energised and exhausted all at the same time has become a bit of a way of life for me this past three months. The planet and all of us are slowly shifting gear. I know it’s time to get on with my spiritual mission. Yet I can’t seem to see through the fog yet. I’m still groping around in the dark looking for the light switch most of the time. Of course there are occasional flashes of light. When I am exploring the energy stream heading to us from 2017 there are bright flecks of illumination. The trick is to catch the inspirations and act on them. If I do so I will be setting myself a good year ahead.
So how do I go about exploring the energy coming in? First of all, I am very aware of energy signals. For the last ten years I have been out and about every week connecting to the energy flow on behalf of other people. Before that I mainly connected in for myself through Tarot, meditation and conversations with my Guides. Learning to tune in on a daily, even hourly basis, has helped me read the energy stream more and more accurately. Secondly, I am open to the reality that the energy flow has many currents. It is a hotch potch of criss crossing intentions, feelings and thoughts all muddled up together. That’s why using the Law of Attraction often ends in disappointment. Shaping energy requires a clear, unequivocal intention. Not something I always find easy to do.
Then I have to consider that what I am exploring might be the energy flow belonging to other people. We are all connected. How much of what I am sensing relates to the people I care about the most?
Wishful thinking can distort what I pick up. Perhaps my daughter wants me to make certain choices that suit her? Maybe my aunty hopes that I will do something that fits with her agenda? In the muddle of energy I have to sort out what belongs to me. Then I can be ready to accept what it brings in. And that’s the fourth thing. I have to be open to receive what is coming my way. That’s not quite as easy as it sounds. I remember being told I should develop my mediumship. There were opportunities for me to do so. I sat on the fence for a very long time. Not ready to receive that experience. Or to take actions that I understood might change my life forever.
Even then I was being intuitive! I sensed that exploring my psychic ability might have a deep impact on my beliefs and way of life. Since I wasn’t quite sure if that would be positive or not I sat back and refused to take action. Not quite the brave explorer I had always thought I was. But I learned. I learned to notice the prompting of my intuition. The flow of energy eventually immersed me in new information. Out of it came some amazing leaps forward. Now I’m back to another set of leaps. 2017 is an Ascension year. What I begin next year will change my life once more.
I know that, even if I don’t know exactly what I will be beginning. I’ve moved from Growth Into Awareness into Growth Into Ascension.
It’s scary, exciting and an adventure. I suspect it’s going to be another wild ride. Ten years ago I approached the energy of change that had entered my life with a lot of nervousness. I was unsure what would turn up in the fog around me. This time I can’t wait. The little glimpses I have had are amazing. I really do want my chance to go exploring and have an escapade or three. There are others joining me on the journey. What a fab way to connect to each other. So it’s time to travel light, travel free and travel with joy <3
Day 382 of my blogging challenge.
Have you ever noticed feeling a bit run down. As if recharging your batteries is overdue? Today I needed a long lie in before heading to the office.
I know that there have been energy upgrades happening thick and fast. Sometimes too many all at once. Each time another one comes along I have to take a day or two just to resettle back into my skin. Recharging is a natural consequence of adjusting to running at a new energy vibration. So the extra energy bump I got yesterday has been evened out today. That’s why I took some extra time to rest. In fact, I have learned my lesson and don’t try to push myself too hard after a boost.
By the afternoon though I was back ready to work with Energy shifting again. Sometimes the place you live or work gets too big a build up of old energies. The Centre tends to gather the energy of the people who visit in exchange for giving out positive blasts. So I regularly clean the aura of the Centre. Sometimes I move the crystals and plants around. Other times, like today, I move the furniture around. Resetting the rooms creates new energy flows. I’m really recharging the space. And naturally, anyone, including me, who visits or uses it.
2017 has been a resetting and recharging year. However, it might have been easy to miss that in all of the fear energy that is coming to the surface to be released.
Part of the recharging is also about being able to let go of old energy. I know it’s easy to keep going round in circles. To keep thinking about the past or old feelings. It’s as if, sometimes, I can’t resist repeating the same patterns over and over. When I reset my energy by releasing old fears, worries and anxieties I make space for new, positive energy to flow to me. But old patterns often take a long time to shift. Especially if they have been there since childhood. Facing my habits with the knowledge that I can change is the best way to do it.
Getting myself on a new track is all about taking that leap off the cliff. I have to trust that what is new in my intuitive life has arrived for the right reasons. Not always easy, I know. But something that I’m doing to make sure I have the best start I can to the new year. I hope that you have found a little time to recharge your energy today. It’s worth a few minutes or event hours if you can. Then you will be ready for all of the positive, new and exciting things that will be happening very soon ?
Day 377 of my blogging challenge.
I’ve had a great day doing Spirit readings. I love making connections for people. In a quiet moment I took an opportunity to ask my Guides if I needed to know anything about the end of my year. Get ready for the shifts they told me.
What shifts? Not more energy turbulence surely. I protested – haven’t we had enough already this year? For most of the year I’ve been speaking and writing about the waves of energy being beamed at us. All designed to get us ready for the shifts that need to happen next year. I’m very aware that this is an ending year. Numerologically it’s a nine meaning endings. As I work on nines personally I have certainly felt the increased force and ups or downs of the energy flows. There have been so many endings as I have cleared my personal energy. Pushed to it really by the force of the waves of powerful change energy blasting at us. I’ve faced down my fears and done it anyway.
I’m also very aware that it’s not only me dealing with endings. All year I have been hearing from people who have been experiencing big shifts in energy too. As it’s a Universal and global shift of consciousness everyone has been affected. No wonder the fear has been surfacing from the shadow side of humanity. So it’s really important to understand what our choices are. I have worked this year to get myself to love myself. To clear out all the low vibrational energy that I have been carrying. Staying positive, sending and receiving love has been my main focus. So I’ve arrived at November only slightly battered by the events of my year. No wonder I felt rather dismayed to find out I still have three more energy waves to ride out.
That’s been the information from my Guides this week. They want me to be ready to love myself enough to stay calm and trust in myself and the flow of abundance.
There is a lot at stake. 2017 is a year of new beginnings. To make the most of the energy next year I have to feel free to choose new things. Getting out of old patterns is vital. Otherwise I might let old fears limit what I do. That would have an impact on my work for many years because I would miss a real chance to be much more effective. My Guides want me to make the most of the last blasts. So they have asked me to be especially kind to myself on 14th, 15th and 16th November, 9th December and 27th December. The energy shifts will bring more wobbles across the globe. And in my life too. The best way to deal with them is be ready for them.
I know I have to stay grounded and protect my energy. I also have to connect with all of the positive and loving energy I can. It’s also good that I am leaving my future to take care of itself. I don’t know what 2017 will bring. It’s still hidden in the mist. Until the fog clears I’m happy to wait and see. The shifts that are coming up in 2017 will be a surprise but in a way that’s very exciting. I feel a lot of freedom is involved and I’m happy to move away from trying to control my life. The tests of the last days of 2016 are all about me trusting. Trusting me and trusting the Universal energy to be in the right place at the right time. So keep calm, meditate, love yourself and get ready for a new life.
Day 356 of my blogging challenge.
Only two months left. 2016 is fading fast. I’m filling in my diary for 2017 quite a bit now. So what can I expect for the rest of this year?
This year has been one of tests. Challenges to see how I am doing with my commitment to my spiritual self. Two or three times I’ve felt like I have taken a wrong turn or even a step back into old patterns. Each time I’ve noticed fairly quickly and been able to do something differently. The key to noticing has been that I’ve been keeping a close watch on my feelings and thoughts. So today I’ve been wondering what is still left for me to put under the microscope. That’s the key to ending the year well.
I’ve mentioned before that 2016 is also the year to choose. The choice is very simple. Do I keep following the same old patterns that limit me. Or do I start new ways of doing things so that I give myself more freedom. This is where the Universal energy flow is very sneaky. Situations are cropping up frequently at the moment to test if I react and act differently. All of us are facing this same energy. So it’s really important to look deeper into any situation that presents itself. I know I can’t take anything at face value right now. I also know that people will disagree with me. Or think I’m wrong. They may even decide I’m causing them hurt or problems. I have to rise above it all.
The rest of this year is about my own truth. About doing what I feel to be the best I can from my point of view. No one else has to agree. In fact there may be two or more opinions about any situation. What matters at the moment is giving voice to my truth.
If I am strong enough to choose to empower myself by stepping away from the old, shadowy fears I know I can start 2017 in a positive way. Two months of staying firm about my values and beliefs. A short time left to confirm that I believe in myself above all else. That I want the best for myself. Because my intention is to share that best with everyone else who crosses my path. How wonderful to think that we could all live to our best. To imagine a world of honesty and trust because the hidden, and not so hidden, agendas had disappeared. It’s been a big ask this year to hold onto that dream. But with two months to go I know I’m ready to make that dream a reality.
Day 345 of my blogging challenge.
We are coming to the end of five years where the energy has been all about facing our fears. Bit by bit we have been asked to look at what we worry about most in our lives. It’s been an inner journey so that we can eventually produce an outer change.
For some time I’ve been picking up the incoming energy feed. I know that there is going to be another great shift in 2017. In the transition from old patterns into a new global community of humanity there is a lot of stuckness to be recognised and faced head on. Holding my inner self steady as I’ve worked through my fears has been a balancing act. One where I have wobbled a lot. Because letting the fears surface and be dealt with is hard. I have buried some so deep it’s been like a mining expedition to get them to the surface. Yet they have to be released from me. Otherwise I will be caught in the same old same old when the new energy hits.
I don’t want to miss out on any opportunities that are coming my way. I certainly don’t want to have to wait for them to come around again. So I’ve been focused on exploring my inner world for the past five years. It’s certainly been a revelation. I never quite understood how much of my behaviour was conditioned or limited by others. It seems I wasn’t used to letting other peoples opinions of me matter far too much. No wonder I found at times that I was surrounded by judgements, negativity or controlling behaviour. So it’s been a challenge for me to recognise I manifested that into my life.
I know we all want to feel like we belong. Sometimes we want to belong so much that we find ourselves trying to keep others happy at our own expense. Inner happiness can be hard to accept in a world where what seems to matter is outward appearance.
Yet the last five years have been all about noticing my outward world. Then working out if it reflects my inner world. Of course, when I realised it didn’t match what I wished for myself I was on notice that I had to change. Perhaps not outwardly at first. But I had to find ways of doing things differently. Manifesting or the law of attraction or cosmic ordering. They all follow the same universal rule of cause and effect. Or, as I like to put it, what you give out you get back. I’ve finally stopped rescuing people or situations. I make a point of treating myself well and putting my needs first. Being open to receive I expect nothing but the flow of abundance. In being ready to receive, and doing so at every opportunity, my inner world is all about being loving and compassionate to myself.
As I’ve learned, if I am able to feel that way inside then I am genuinely able to give that same energy out to others. In 2017 I expect to receive so much. But the best part of that is it means I will be able to give so much more outwardly. My inner and outer worlds will balance. However, I’m still a work in progress. I haven’t got the balance yet. This morning I was sitting having one of my ‘weekend’ days. Time for me not work. But there was still a niggle in the back of my mind. A list of all the things I still had to do. A sense that I ought to rush into work and do them. Never mind the 10 or 12 hour days from the previous week. Get the work done.
I resisted that urge. It was time to hold out for a day that gave me a chance to relax. So I met some friends for coffee and enjoyed much needed down time.
Resisiting the pull of work – the fear of leaving things undone – reminded me how far I have progressed. There are still some strong energy waves to come in this year. They will be surfacing more fears and stuck patterns. For all of us. World events reflect this too. Whilst we are being shaken loose of our fears there will be a lot of negativity around. I’m focused on holding the balance within myself. If I remain positive within then I can help that energy to manifest in my outer world too. Whatever fear arises we can all contribute to a fearless outcome. When you pay attention to your inner world you will be doing the best thing you can to ensure that you are living in a positive outer world. Go gently through the remainder of 2016 ?
Day 339 of my blogging challenge.
There is a lot of full moon energy about today. I always enjoy the boost it gives me. Especially when it’s time to look forward at the new year.
I know that we still have a couple of months before 2017 starts but I took the opportunity today to have a discussion about my forward plans at the Down 2 Earth Centre. I find that when I explain things to others the sound of what I’m saying always pings when it feels right. It’s part of my way of living an intuitive life. I’ve spent so much time being steered by my head, following what I thought was best, but ending up not engaged in something I’m passionate about. To step out of that way of planning things was scary. After all it’s conditioning I’ve had since I was at school.
I have found it hard to follow my feelings. Especially because in school and throughout a lot of my adult life I was guided by what I thought. There is an expectation that we will do practical things. Work at what brings in money. Be driven by the need to survive rather than by the need to be happy. So when I planned anything it had to be structured around earning money, paying my way and making a useful contribution. Anything else got me thinking fearful or unconfident things. Even when I started working for myself nearly 20 years ago I approached what I was doing in a rational way. Strange that my plans didn’t seem to work the way I expected.
That’s the realisation I came to after years of forward planning that never quite took me where I wanted to go. So I looked around for a new way of looking to the future.
It helped a lot that by this time I was also learning about tuning in to energy. I was paying a lot more attention to what I felt. My Guides were making themselves known. I practiced being aware of my feelings before I made decisions. In time I realised that what made me feel happy didn’t always feature in my plans. There was a gap. What I wanted to do seemed to come second to what I thought I had to do. It was time to approach my forward planning in a different way. That’s when I started talking to people about my ideas and noticing what I felt as I spoke.
With this method I decided to put in place the ideas or options that made me feel good. I stopped judging what I do from a money, survival or ‘because I ought’ point of view. Now I look at the next year from the position of ‘will this make me feel happy’. I do more of what I like and a lot less of what I ought to do. My aim is to get to the point where I really only do what I love doing. So my admin tasks will definitely be shifting next year, lol. Instead there will be a lot more teaching. And healing. And Earth’s ArchAngels.
After all, who said my business had to be serious, routine or dull? That is what it would become if I stuck to the same old same old. Or felt I should, must or ought to offer only those things that would make me a profit.
Finding someone who could be my sounding board gives me a chance to check that what I’m planning is going to be fun, interesting and stretching for me. If I’m loving what I do then those who want to join in will get a blast of that energy too. The wave of positive can spread. Which is why I also like to be the sounding board for others. It’s great to hear their out loud forward planning. Between us we can share the excitement of identifying plans that come from the heart. We can offer each other support when stepping out of a comfort zone is required. Together, I feel that we can make our next business year an emotional success.
It may seem a bit odd to talk about business as an emotional success. However, I know that I put much more effort into things I’m passionate about. I also know that successful business people do the same. How much passion you have can turn a stressful treadmill of effort into an exciting adventure. I also feel that an emotional success links directly with spirituality. When I know that I am doing the happiest thing for me I am flowing with the evolution of my life. Being here is, I believe, all about learning to be in alignment with my higher purpose. Finding contentment, commitment and happiness in the work I do brings me into that alignment. Because my heart will always love doing what I, as Spirit, planned to do.
So my plans are emerging. 2017 is going to be a great year and I’m going to do what I love doing? What about your plans?
Day 335 of my blogging challenge.
