Make Space For Divine Magic Every Day

Where does divine magic reside?

Everywhere, but especially

In the spaces in between.

Between our words, our actions, our thoughts.

Divine magic is connectedness.

When the mind isn’t deeply engaged in a task,

When its relaxed, free to meander nowhere in particular,

That’s when we become available,

When the non-ordinary realms can connect into our open and undirected energies,

That’s when the magic happens.

That’s how we channel.

When/where do you feel most connected to the inner planes?

Maybe when you’re lying in bed at night or first thing in the morning,

Maybe in nature, when you’re experiencing the expansive energies of the great outdoors.

Do you ever wonder, “How can I get in touch with my spiritual guides?” Or maybe you wish to know your soul family, or the angels, fairies, tree spirits or ascended masters? Perhaps you’d like to invite a dragon or unicorn guide into your life…

By cultivating space between our thoughts, we leave room for the invisible realms to connect and communicate with us.

Let’s make space for divine magic every day,

Let your mind be free to meander, daydream, ponder, zone out

Allow yourself to wander in and out of consciousness.

Let go

We need more spaces between our thoughts to let divine magic flow in.

The Deeper We Go

The deeper we go, the less we know

The less we know, the more we surrender

The more we surrender, the less we worry

The less we worry, the more we quieten

The more we quieten, the less we struggle

The less we struggle, the more we flow

The more we flow, the deeper we go.

Moving On Up

Don’t be confused by the word ‘ascension’.

It means to move up. It refers to an increase in our vibration. We are already vibrating at a higher frequency and this is continuing.

Ascension is not necessarily about moving on from Earth by dying, sprouting wings or going somewhere else. There’s always an ongoing, natural process of ascension occurring and it’s quickening up these days, more so than has happened in a while.

It’s happening to all of us, all at different places on our journey, different rates of vibration, all moving up together, whether consciously or not. And not only us, Mother Earth is expanding, so are all the beings and living energies upon the Earth, even the elements like water, air and fire are moving to higher frequencies. Everything is transforming towards a new state on Earth where the physical reality still exists whilst a greater access to emotional, mental and spiritual energies are attained also.

It’s happening now and it never stops because there’s a constant expansion of energy throughout the universe and beyond. It’s not only the Earth, every planet, every being, even the ascended masters are ascending, really, it doesn’t stop, we are all moving closer to our truth, the divine source.

When you see the word ‘ascension’, it’s just referring to the way that life is constantly moving.

How far you expand will depend upon how much you open up to it, how much you embody the energies of unconditional love and peace that exist within you.

Let it flow.

What’s On Your Tomb?

The ancient Egyptians honoured death and if they could afford to, they created the most amazing and beautiful tombs to house their bodies after they died. On the walls of the tomb, they depicted everything they wished to manifest in the afterlife, so that they could continue living their best life. Thus, we see hunting scenes, great feasts, family members gathered together in fondness, all the riches of life, the activities, objects and experiences they loved best. Sometimes, they depict themselves with the deities, as if they are saying, “Here’s one of me in the afterlife with my bestie, the great Goddess Isis!”

This was a form of transmutation to them, by magically depicting the world they wished to live in and filling it full of all they desired, they intended to draw the energy of that reality to them when they left their earthly existence.

The truth is, the spirit doesn’t need earthly things in the next realm, but it can manifest them if it so chooses. My grandfather never smoked during the years I knew him, so I was puzzled why he always brings the smell of tobacco when he visits me in spirit. One day, I asked my mother, she told me he had been a heavy smoker until he was diagnosed with cancer when I was a baby. He survived for nearly twenty years after that, as a non-smoker, during the years I remember him. Nevertheless, he seems to have chosen to revive that particular pleasure again, once arriving on the other side where smoking can do no harm.

The tomb I imagine for myself would depict the lush green richness of nature; woodlands, seashore, rivers and valleys. I will paint an underwater seascape of coral reefs and kelp forests with shoals of rainbow fish and a diving cormorant. A landscape filled with birds and wildlife belonging to the British isles; fox, stag, hawk, raven and bee. The ceiling shall depict a night sky with a mass of stars coalescing into the Milky Way.

All those I love shall be painted with me, whether physical or spiritual beings. I shall paint a temple of serenity for us to sit together in stillness and peace whilst we emanate loving vibrations for all that need them.

On the lower walls, the underworld shall be represented along with drumming, dancing, music, singing and chanting around a fire. I will honour and depict the Elemental Kingdom and the Crystalline Consciousness, call in divine magic and make sure my shamanic drum and painting kit are present for me to access from the other side. And there shall be as many cats as I have known in life, in their colours and patterns, each one illustrated with their earthly name.

If you could create, or have created, paintings and carvings to conjure up the world your spirit will live in after you die, what would you represent on the walls of your tomb?

Prayer To Call In The Entirety of Oneself

“I’m calling in the energies right now, to own myself, completely and utterly.

To own all that I am.

To call in all the disparate energies that are me that have scattered to the four winds

Hear me! I call you back! I address all those parts of me, all those energies that ever left me or were taken from me.

It is safe. It is safe to return to the source, to be whole, to be healed, to be one. I am ready to love you, I am ready to own you

I own my body

I honour my physicality and the ways my body speaks through sensations and pain

I own my feelings

I embrace my anger, sadness, fear, hurt, and allow them to express and unfold

I own my story

I accept the hand I’ve been dealt, that my soul is choosing, and the learning my wounds have brought

I own my wounds and trauma

I allow the depths, the cracks, the burdens that I bear to give me their gifts and teach me their wisdom

I own my thoughts and beliefs

I observe the meandering narratives and persistent absolutes and thank my ego for standing at the interface between myself and the world every day

I own my heart

I ask my heart to remain open and enable the flow of love, knowing that my soul is ever present at my heart’s centre, knowing that the more open my heart is, the more freely the divine flows through me and from me

I own my voice

I enable my words representing my truth and vision to be expressed with power and conviction. I am ready to be heard and will not shirk from speaking my truth

I own my intuition

I get out of the way of myself and let divine inspiration guide me

I own my authenticity

My authenticity is the truth of my being, it is my acceptance of self, it is the owning of my entire multi-dimensional, multi-faceted and integrated being

I own my power

I recognise my sovereignty and know that I am rooted into my divinity and that my foundation is love. I have been holding closed the floodgates of my power but now I unleash my power upon the universe

I own my darkness

I am ready to see and accept that there are no sins, only choices. Whether foul or fair, it is all me. It is all a part of the canvas upon which the divine plays and explores itself. There is no judgement from now on, no evil exists here, only darkness and light, and I embrace them both as I would my children

I am ready to fully step into myself, to never falter from being true to me

I release all the energy that I’m holding that isn’t mine. Begone, return to your maker, you are not for me.”

Seize Your Power

It is not enough to learn things

You must choose them

And keep on choosing them with all your power

That’s why cultivating your personal power is so important

If your power is weak, then your goals may begin to manifest but they will slip away before you can fully grasp them.

What is your power?

It is a combination of strength, belief in yourself, trust in everything, knowing when to surrender, accepting the flow, opening your heart, making fear your friend, stillness, truth and saying yes to life.

Body, Mind and Soul: We Are Changing

There is so much going on these days, energy-wise, do you feel it?

Right now and ongoing, the energies that are pouring into the Earth-sphere that are available to us all, they are radiating many powerful qualities. Some of these energies are activating within us naturally and we don’t even need to be aware. But if we are aware, we can consciously boost and focus those energies to fulfil our own personal intentions.

One of the major areas of vibrational convergence is the blending of physical and non-physical energy, so that what is being received from the inner planes is seeping through, not only spiritually, emotionally and mentally but physically too.

Our bodies are changing, literally realigning as energy and flesh, blood and bone. Our cells and DNA are updating. Everything and everyone is levelling up. The consequence of this means that, as the old energy comes to the surface to be released and make room for the new, we may experience an increase of pains, symptoms, bodily sensations, emotions and mental turmoil. This is a part of the cleansing and releasing process that underlies the rebuilding and recalibrating of our multi-faceted being.

Perhaps you are aware of this. Perhaps there are symptoms and feelings expressing for you that you’re struggling to understand. Perhaps you’re changing your understanding and attitude towards your body, towards the nutrients that you’re choosing to put in your body. Thanks to the recent changes, our bodies need much less food than we’re used to, it’s okay to leave behind the three-meals-a-day habits of a lifetime and follow your body’s impulses.

Perhaps movement is the expression that your body is focusing upon. Maybe you have the desire to dance or walk or run or stretch or simply do more. Or less, maybe your body is needing rest and your impulse or conditions are bringing you to increased stillness, silence, peace and solitude.

What’s changing for you?

Take the opportunity to check in with your body more often. 

To ask your body what it needs.

To notice where the choices you are making are changing your life and your being.

Get involved, make new intentions and send them out, what are you choosing for your new self?

Are you choosing health? That all your existing health conditions recalibrate and heal? Are you choosing energy and vitality? Are you seeing yourself grow more flexible, active and lively every day?

You can change your health and wellbeing if you choose to energise those intentions now.

What are your intentions for your body? 

How would to choose to improve your relationship with your body?

It’s all possible now, due to the energy available to us all.

Easily and simply, we can do this just by utilising our intentions and focus.

Choose. Then surrender, trust, accept and receive the energies that are already within and around you, energies that can manifest your wishes.

Working With Anger

Recently, I wrote about a situation where my anger was coming out and being expressed, in a post called ‘Fire From Within’. I decided to do some work with my anger and just at that moment, specific guidance appeared to help. Not for the first time, exactly what was needed materialised at the right moment.

So it was, I sat with my anger and, asking for clarification, realised it emanated from injustices perceived as a small child. These were experiences of being bullied and traumatised by others. My little self didn’t know why I was being attacked, but had the sense to realise it wasn’t fair. The initiator of my current anger, held within for many years, was my childhood self who didn’t have a voice and was still feeling neither seen or heard.

Anger, albeit internalised, was my lifeline. Anger carries a lot of power and energy, it became my strength and salvation. It meant I was a fighter and survivor. I didn’t give up, I always believed in myself deep down and held the power to eventually cultivate inner love for myself. As a child, I learnt to hide my power, because if expressed, I was punished, but it was still there, defiantly lying dormant within.

When I recently started exploring my anger, I called in a white healing light and was bathed in unconditional love that allowed me to see my anger differently. I saw how it was only because of experiencing injustices that I experienced anger, and it was due to experiencing anger that I experienced my creative power. And when the illusion of anger subsided, I saw that my power was love, unconditional love.

With this unconditional love, which bathed me completely, I saw myself emanating a great cloud of soft pink love towards all those who I had received injustice from. I perceived that I loved them unconditionally. There was nothing there but love, I was nothing but love.

This power of unconditional love has become my foundation. From this foundation, I create. I feel strongly called to make paintings whilst coming from and holding this powerful pink light of unconditional love, so that the canvases themselves hold and convey this love towards all who gaze upon them. The energy is a softness, a flow, it is union, divine unity expressed creatively. Maybe the paintings can help others dissolve their anger and release the power of their creativity.

Anger is an expression of fear and yet, anger can be very powerful, creative and valuable but we must not let that anger become stuck, it must flow as we allow it to be expressed. Every energy we think of as negative is there for a purpose and that purpose brings more love and light into our hearts, if we let it.

Imagine that your base chakra is a red colour.

When you take your awareness into your base chakra and ask if there’s anger there, what do you learn?

What do you learn when you sit with your anger? Stay with it for a while.

Now call in white healing light and see it turn pink when it merges with the red inside your base chakra. This pink colour is unconditional love, let it bathe your root chakra and transform your anger.

Stay with the energy as the pink light dissolves away the illusions of all your anger and allows you to see, with clear understanding, the original source of your anger.

Notice that your new understanding is transforming into the resolution you need, whether it’s the need to forgive, to embrace peace, to love yourself more, to let go, to open up, whatever it is for you.

Know that the anger has now been released and yet, the creative power and force that underlies it will continue to flow from your base chakra and become your foundation, from which you can create anything and everything you could imagine.

Being Authentic

Over the years, there have been times when persons have judged me as coming up short in their estimations. It happens, perhaps it’s happened to you. I’ve always had a good radar for reading people but I could read myself too and knew where they were coming from.

I didn’t know what was missing in me that made me express myself in a limited way.

Now I understand, I grew up a traumatised person and consequently, was not able to be authentic. It took me a while to recognise that and longer to change.

Authenticity isn’t something we do, only be.

People can only be where they are on their life journey and that’s okay, but that’s not necessarily the entirety of the ‘who’ of us. Because the truth of our being unfolds.

We are all in a process of movement through fulfilment.

So, let’s give people a chance, let them in a little more. Give others room to grow. Let’s do that for ourselves too.

We are often struggling with each other, with ourselves, learning to love, to trust, to open our hearts.

Being authentic is the easiest thing in the world when you’re ready for it, until then, it can be the hardest thing to find. But it’s there, deep inside, it’s always there. Like a diamond waiting to be revealed.

Amenet Drago & Mastery the Black Dragon

I first received my soul name in the summer of 2018. I was waking from sleep and heard “Amenet” spoken, strong and loud. I knew instantly that it was the name of my soul. When I received my sacred soul initiation a few months later, the name came through again. I did some research into Amenet, since I hadn’t come across this name before that I could remember.

The first information I found was about Amunet, the ancient Egyptian Goddess, female counterpart and twin flame of Amun. She is the original primal divine Goddess whose name means ‘she who is hidden’. This title refers to her being hidden in plain sight. She is everywhere, present in everything, and yet, only the initiated can see her presence because she is hidden within.

The ancient Egyptians didn’t use vowels when writing, so her name is spelled in numerous forms; Amunet, Amenet, Amaunet…

In the Akan culture, the same deities are known as Amenet and Amen. Akan is primarily present in Ghana and Ivory Coast, with an ancestry clearly rooted in ancient Egypt. Amenet is the supreme Great Mother and with Amen, they are the embodiment of Divine Union.

I am not suggesting that my soul is that of a goddess, except from the understanding that I believe we are all divine beings, so I do like to think of myself as such, but not exclusively so.

I recall several ancient Egyptian past lives, it feels like ancient Egyptian culture is the time my soul has loved the best and I remember clearly when my Earthly personality was called Meritamen, which means ‘blessed of the hidden one’.

During 2019, I made a vision quest and after that, a black dragon started to make itself known to me. I began to feel his presence during meditations. I felt a kind of awakened memory of extreme affection and deep knowing with this powerful being, so I tuned in and received his name, Mastery. After that, it was as though he was often around in the background.

Fast forward to late 2020 and I was painting my newly acquired shamanic drum. I knew intuitively that my dragon friend, Mastery, was going on the drum’s image and as it turned out, so was my soul, Amenet, in her Egyptian form. As I tuned into the energies, four words came forward to be painted along the rim of the drum; Soul, Dragon, Mastery and Amenet.

I knew these words were intimately bound to my soul calling, and somehow, they arranged themselves into Soul Mastery and Amenet Dragon, but when I painted the last word, I intuitively stopped before I painted the last letter. Soul Mastery became the name of my soul mission and I realised that Amenet Drago was the true name of my soul, although I sense that Drago is more a title than a name. They are now an intricate part of my identity.

Later, I asked my soul group, the collective from which my soul extends, to tell me about the relationship between my soul and Mastery the black dragon. They told me of a distant time on Earth when people and dragons walked together. A time we know as Lemuria. It was not like nowadays, humans were not restricted to the physical realms, they had a great many more abilities than are awake in humanity currently. A dragon and a person could create a partnership that was deep and abiding. They would achieve many marvellous things together and my soul was such, a Drago or dragon walker.

Eventually, as humanity faced a corruption of their energies, the dragons retreated to the inner planes, but the deep bonds remained. I believe there are many people alive today on Earth whose souls are calling in their beloved dragons again. The dragons are here in the energetic to be with our souls and help us fulfil our soul purpose. My dragon is working with my soul as we support souls who are transitioning through the process we call death.

On New Year’s Eve night as 2021 ended, I received guidance from my soul group explaining how Mastery and I are here to support the Truth Maker souls who are choosing to transition at this time from their Earthly existence to the inner planes. As they transition, they are creating powerful energies of truth which are grounded for humanity’s ascension. This work often takes place during my sleep and when I’m engaged to journey as a soul guide.

I humbly ask that I, as my personality, Ananda, will always be the conduit of love and peace that my soul, Amenet Drago, and my dragon, Mastery, require to fulfil their truth and purpose.
