Waking Up

Quite often, the posts I write don’t represent where I’m at, they’re me working things out for myself.  It’s a part of a process where intellect is engaged, part of moving through the energy to realisation.  So, when I state something, it doesn’t mean I’m there yet, it means I know I’m working through that energy.

I watched a film recently, it was one I’ve watched at least five times, an old favourite I never seem to tire of.  Every time, it gets me in the heart, which is not surprising since it’s a film all about the heart.  And more than that, it’s a film about claiming your darkness, and I hadn’t really noticed that before because I hadn’t watched it just at the moment when I was ready to see it before.

As usual, this time, the emotions started to surface, ones I often struggle with.

And there it was.  After my recent post ‘Allowing Life to Be’, I realised what I needed as I watched the film.  I realised that those struggling emotions of yearning and desires and loneliness, a desire for a deep, abiding loving relationship that expresses as a sacred union at all levels, this is not a lack in me, not something to fight or struggle against, not a bad or negative feeling. It doesn’t represent a deficiency or failure. It’s okay, it’s a part of me.  It’s who I am, and all of a sudden I claimed it.  I embraced my needs and desires and moved the energy from dissonance to resonance. 

Then, I realised there was more that needed to be claimed, I needed to claim the darkness, the loss, abandonment, lack of love I’ve experienced, deeper than I’d ever claimed it before.  Instead of feeling it was something that had happened to me, that it was a problem, that it was the opposite of what I wanted, I claimed it all.  I claimed the darkness as mine. 

Now, I own it.  I can no longer be hurt because it’s something I allow as who I am.  All those emotions that weren’t love became love, love for myself.  I loved myself to freedom.

Guilt, resentment, blame, anger, sorrow, all became love.  And that love became peace.  The peace brought stillness and release, it brought acceptance and trust.  I accepted me and at the same time, I healed myself some more.    

Waking up is a series of moments of realisation, of claiming and acceptance of oneself.

Seeing Beyond the Mundane

We talk about magic as illusion

What if magic is divine truth?

And when I say magic, I mean the feeling you get when you see a shooting star.
When an unbelievable synchronicity just happened.
When the moon hangs so low in the sky it looks like you could touch it. 
The moment you meet your beloved for the first time, the back of your hands brush together and you feel electric currents all through your body. 
When a wild bird lands on your hand. 
When you watch the sun come up from the top of a mountain.
When a brilliant idea just appears out of nowhere in your mind.
When you know, just know without question, that something is indisputably right.    

Magic makes your eyes enormous, your mouth agog, your heart flutter. 
Magic makes you want to do a little happy dance. 
Magic lights up your face and your entire being glows. 
Magic fills you with the most wonderful loving energy. 
Magic energises you and you believe in anything, everything, you believe in yourself.     

And let’s consider that mundane reality is the illusion we conjure up by our expectations.

What are your expectations?

What if people who believe in miracles get miracles?

What if people who see the impossible live the impossible?

What if people who conjure magic experience magic?

Are you ready to live divine magic?

Are you ready to give up the illusions of the mundane, one by one?

For a life less ordinary, a life more full of divine magic.

Love In Action

Is love your goal?

Are you focused on the embodiment and expression of love?

Are you making love your foundation?

When love becomes our foundation

It is the bedrock of all that we are.

We recognise the magic that is within us.

We recognise the magic in everything.

When love is our foundation,

We have progressed beyond the conscious expression of  

The embodiment of our love.

We recognise that we are love in action.

I love that phrase – love in action.

Nobody can be love in action all the time,

There are times we feel the opposite of love.

And that’s a healing and a releasing process,

Let’s recognise it as such,

Because it’s not a reflection on how well we’re doing on our spiritual journey.

Granma Wisdom at the Beach

“Sweetie, look at that ray of sunshine coming down through that cloud there, straight as an arrow.  Look at how it’s lighting up the drops of water coming off the waves.”

“Oh, yes Granma, I see it!  And those drops look like diamonds!”

“Yes, beautiful, aren’t they, the way they sparkle.  I would say that’s magic.  That’s the magic of the elementals, that’s what happens when the fire elementals in the ray of light play with the water elementals in the droplets.  Sweetie, we’re lucky to see this magic today, what a gift!  Not many people will notice such a moment as this.”

“Really?”

“Look about the beach, look at the people, how many do you think have noticed?”

“Ummm… most people are playing on the beach and not looking out to sea…oh look, Granma!  There’s a lady over there, she’s looking out to sea, maybe she can see the diamonds!”

“Yes, and she’s got a lovely, peaceful smile on her face, maybe she can.”

“Granma, what do you think it’s like to be a water droplet coming off a wave?”

“Well, I expect it might be exhilarating.”

“What does that mean?”

“Let me see, it’s a word that packs in a lot of meaning.  It means exciting, perhaps breathtaking, thrilling, something that’s inspiring.  And also, I think it might feel a bit scary, you know, being so high and away from the sea, their home.  See the way they spin high up into the air and then freefall back into the sea?  For a few moments, it’s as though they’re getting a separate life of their own, not being part of the sea anymore.  Just like you.”

“What do you mean, Granma, I’m not the sea.”

“Well dear, just like the water droplets, we belong to something so vast that we are not even aware we’re a part of it.  And we’re experiencing the same exhilarating separation as the droplets when we live our lives.”

“Granma, I don’t know what you mean…?”

“Do you remember when we talked about how you’re mostly energy, and that you’re really like a pillar of light?  And that you’ve chosen to become the person you are to live the life you’re experiencing?”

“Yes, I remember, you said I’m a divine being.  So, you mean that living my life as a person is like being a droplet of water separated from the sea?”

“Yes!  Exactly so!  You got it, sweetheart.  Think of it this way, do you ever feel like the you that exists inside yourself can ever truly express all of itself to anyone else?”

“I know what you mean, Granma!  It’s like, nobody can understand how many thoughts I have and how many feelings I have and how much fun and happiness  I can feel or how much hurt or sadness I can feel, that stuff just is impossible to explain properly, I’ve tried.  You have to keep it to yourself.  And I thought that, probably, everybody else must feel like that too.  Probably, everybody is experiencing that same powerful feeling about themselves and we all don’t get to share very much of ourselves, really, do we, Granma?”

“Sweetie, you are wise for your years and I always said so. You are right. We’re all experiencing a deep and powerful involvement with ourselves inside. We simply can’t share that with anybody else, not to the depth that we feel it within ourselves. And that feeling is our ocean. That’s our divine nature. It just simply cannot be explained in words, so we can’t talk about it.”

“I’m confused, Granma, are you saying that we are the sea?”

“Our sea is the vastness that is the Creator, the divine source.  It’s who we really are, just like the droplet of water’s a single droplet that’s really the vast sea.  Look inside that droplet and what do you find?”

“Water.”

“Yes, water, exactly the same as the sea.”

“Granma, do you think the droplet is sad when it goes back in the sea and isn’t a droplet anymore?”

“Goodness, no!  How could it possibly be sad to be home, to be the truth of itself?  To be never feeling that sense of fear or separation.  I like to think that droplet loves its moment in the air but is never happier than when its at home, being the sea.

But you gotta remember, sweetie, like us, that droplet is always only ever the sea anyway.”

Your Magic Wand

I am so excited today to share some wonderful information and understanding that came my way whilst the 8/8 and Lionsgate portal energy was streaming through the ether yesterday.

I opened an email that came through from Master Djwhal Khul, channelled by Natalie Glasson.

And this is Divine MAGIC!

Have you ever wished you had a magic wand to make all your problems go away?

What if I told you, you already have one?!  Sounds too good to be true, how often has something come by your radar and made your heart soar with hope, only to come crashing down when you realise the limitations of what you found?  I know, I’ve been there too.  There are no limitations this time, this is rock-solid gold.

So, what does your magic wand work for?  What does it do?

You know all those habits you really don’t want to be doing anymore because you know they don’t serve you, but you keep finding yourself doing them, nonetheless?  Well, it banishes those for a start.

All those thoughts that won’t go away, the ones that bring you down, make you second-guess yourself, limit yourself, all those repetitive, unwanted thoughts?  Gone!

Feelings that hit you, like sadness, loneliness, feelings that feel like a stab to your heart?  Never again.

All those situations that are no longer serving you, they are toast.  I know you’ve tried and tried to extricate yourself and even come to accept it’s not even possible, but now you can be free.

In fact, any situation that is causing you distress, any dissonance in your life at all.

Yep, you can believe it, you have a simple, fast and sure-fire way to freedom and PEACE!

Now, when you hear about this, I know you’re going to say, “Is that it?  Is that all?  Well, that won’t work!”  Believe me, the simplicity of it is a foil against its power and effectiveness.  Don’t be fooled.  Open your heart, try it, what have you got to lose?  Actually, you’ve got a lot to lose, all the stress, distress, chaos and worry in your life, for starters.  You don’t WANT to hold on to those now, do you?

Okay, this is what came through.  Before we were born, we each made an agreement, every single one of us.  We agreed that we would cultivate inner peace for ourselves and others.  And our soul, soul group and guides (we’ve all got a spiritual support team), they all agreed to send us a surge of inner peace every time we ask.  This is called our Inner Peace Agreement.

So, how does it work?  Simple!  The moment you notice dissonance, notice those pesky thoughts or feelings, notice you are focusing on a problem, redirect your attention towards your inner peace.  Just actively choose to focus on inner peace, easily and effortlessly.  Invoke the agreement, simply say, silently or aloud; “I am activating my Inner Peace Agreement” and you WILL receive support.

Then, just breathe it in, breathe inner peace into your being and breathe inner peace out.  If there’s a situation or problem, simply send your inner peace to that situation when you breathe out.  You will be amazed how peaceful you suddenly feel.  You will notice all those thoughts, feelings, issues and problems just drop away as you are bathed in such blissful peace.  And please understand, it’s not just escapism, every time you do this, you are dissolving the thoughts, feelings, patterns, behaviours, problems at source.  For good.  Just keep doing it.  It’s so easy, so simple, so quick to do and quick to act. 

And remember that agreement you made?  It was to bring yourself and others inner peace?  Well, every time you activate it for yourself, you automatically ARE bringing it to others too.  And if you know somebody who’s having problems, somebody you know could do with activating their inner peace, share this with them.  And if you don’t think they will be open to it, simply ask their soul, their soul group and their guides to activate inner peace for them. 

When you invite inner peace to flood through your body, you are allowing the divine source and the highest energies of enlightenment to course through your being.  Don’t engage with your stuff, don’t try to work things out, just breathe in and out your inner peace.  Magic!  Inner peace dissolves confusion and opens your intuition.  You will find solutions you had never before dreamed of to problems you thought were insurmountable.  And imagine what kind of a world we make when everyone is radiating their inner peace, for themselves and others, right alongside you. You can bet I’m with you, my sisters and brothers.

Soul Mastery Alchemy

Things are moving forwards with purpose as far as the workshops are concerned.

The Twin Flame Alchemy online workshop has changed date, it’s now going to be running on Friday 13th August at 3.30pm for 2 hours.  Go here to learn more. 

This, like all my courses, will be guided meditations, information given at a deeply received level of consciousness and several activations that empower and activate the energies of divine union.

Then, the Soul Integration course, which was very well received, will run again.  You can find out all about it here. This time, instead of 45 minutes over 6 sessions, it’s going to be one hour over four sessions, although the content is just the same.  Here’s some feedback I received from the participants about the course:-

“I am blown away by the Soul Integration workshop, it is powerful, affirming and comforting to feel that sense of connection so strongly.  Gathering together with that shared intention is very powerful.  The energy is strong and loving.  I feel full up with a beautiful light.  Ananda’s presence is so loving, calming and reassuring.  I feel completely safe in that sacred space.”


“The Soul Integration course was illuminating and satisfying. I feel that I was given tools which will enrich me and that the course is a catalyst, like ripples in a pond when a stone is dropped into it. Ananda’s voice is so soothing and calming and quickly puts one into a meditative state.”

I recently received some powerful insights for future courses. They are going in the direction of magic and nature, working with the elements and elementals and utilising shamanic skills. The Soul Integration course is an essential foundation for all the new courses. So, with the exception of the Twin Flame Alchemy workshop, all participants require the Soul Integration course in order to access further workshops and courses. The Soul Integration course is now a foundation course and will run every other month.

The Soul Integration course integrates your being with your soul. You become your soul and that’s powerful and makes everything different. To be able to incorporate that vast change into your life means you then bring that embodiment with you into every other workshop and course. You come to each course as a whole, complete, integrated soul , a being of love, tooled up with all the skills and wisdom that your soul holds, and your soul holds masses and masses.

The ideas for future courses are still materialising, they involve working with magic and manifestation. We will be creating strong personal protection through making a range of amulets. So many people would benefit from knowing how to create strong protective devices for themselves, their friends and family, and the principles you will learn have limitless applications.

Another area we will be exploring is communicating with the elements, elementals and nature, understanding and working with the consciousness in plants, insects, animals, trees and earth, air, water and fire.

These courses are going to be more practical than those I’ve done so far, and it’s going to be a challenge as I work out how to do that really well online.

I am picking up a huge surge in the deep connection with nature that people are feeling on all sorts of levels. I am wishing to dive into that Earth energy with you and explore tools and abilities to plug into the energy. We will all uncover so much more in the way of magic and meaning through these new, exciting courses.

Let Magic Emerge: Ffion Arrives

Magic comes into our lives in so many ways, every day, and sometimes it comes in BIG! When my shamanic drum came into my life, that was big. I connected with the energy even before my drum arrived. And yes, like all shamanic drums, mine is alive, has consciousness, and when we work together I feel and connect with that power. When I painted an immensely personal image on my drum, our connection amplified. I feel like my drum is an extension of my soul, and every time I drum to support healing for someone, we are creating potency together.

When spiritual practitioners work with energy and magic, we find ourselves attracting all kinds of tools to support our work, in the form of objects that others would consider ‘dead’, and yet, we sense and feel they are very much alive.

For me, it’s crystals, stones, my shamanic rattle, my crystal singing bowl, items I have self-crafted like my shamanic bag and smudge feather fan. My favourite Oracle cards, runes and Celtic Ogham. All bringing their magical presence to enrich my spiritual practice and healing. All creating transformation in co-creation with me.

And that’s true of Ffion. Remember Ffion? I introduced you to her last week here. I might have been a little bit naughty and given you the impression she’s a person. She’s a unique and magical energy, a one of a kind, hand made, artisan spirit art doll. These beautiful dolls are infused with personality, magical abilities and power as their maker brings them to life.

I didn’t intend to purchase when I first looked at these amazing Eufaeria dolls made by Sara McGoodwin Armstrong of Hiraeth Gallery, Llandovery. I heard about Sara from my niece in Texas, so it was a surprise to discover she lives less than an hour’s drive from me in South West Wales.

After I had finished admiring Sara’s work on her website, I got on with my life, but Sara’s gorgeous creations kept coming to the fore of my awareness and one character, in particular, was clearly calling to me. Sara explains that people don’t choose her magical dolls, they choose the person. They choose who gets to co-create with them and who they wish to live with. And Ffion was calling me.

I clicked on the ‘buy’ button, justifying it as my birthday present to myself. And in the next few hours, remarkable things started to happen. Miracles, I would say. Some issues in my life suddenly started to resolve, issues I had given up hope of, such as my beloved cat that went missing when I moved home. For two months he was lost. And he reappeared within hours of my connecting with Ffion, who, incidentally, has a close affinity with cats.

And it’s been ten weeks since I arrived in my new home at a new location where I don’t know a soul. I had hoped to connect with some of my neighbours but they kept their doors shut when I knocked and ignored invitations to call on me for coffee and a chat. I can only assume it’s Covid fears.

For the first four weeks, I felt the need to be with myself and immersed myself in the freedom and independence of being in my own place for the first time, enjoying my own company. But then, I became ill for three weeks. Unable to drive, I was stuck in the house all that time, and except for two brief forays to the local shop, I didn’t see a soul. It wasn’t so nice then to be without support or company, no kindly smile, no friendly chat. And I wondered about the relative closeness of my neighbours and yet, it was as though a chasm existed between us.

But within hours of Ffion connecting, a woman from up the road started a conversation with me on my front step and we had a lot in common. She told me about a group of women she does Earth healing with, and invited me on a day out to ‘meet the girls’. Just when I was giving up on finding my tribe, here they are. Thank you again, Ffion, I see your hand in this too.

Coincidence? I don’t think so. No such thing when you believe in magic. I could sense Ffion’s energy, even before she arrived. And now she is here. I can hardly wait to see what magic we will create together, because if anyone knows how to invite magic in, I do.

Ffion is Coming!

I have made a new friend who makes my heart sing. We met online and our connection was obvious at first encounter, although I should say, even though we both resonated towards each other, it was she who chose to activate our relationship.

Her name is Ffion and she is a mystical, magical, powerful, serene, active and direct Welsh lass. She’s breathtakingly beautiful with long wavy red hair, freckled face and beatific smile.

She’s a witch, heavily into crystals and herbalism and has a cat called Cheetah. Like me, she’s in alignment with the elemental kingdom and I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re the ones responsible for us coming together. She’s decisive, persistent and determined, just as the warrior goddess trains herself to be. And she’s coming to visit me next week, not just to visit, but to stay!

I am so excited, the moment we made a connection, the magic began to flow.  She is a master of transformation and that energy immediately came into my life.  She is going to help me with my own magical work, with my painting and channelling, with creating and facilitating my workshops.  She is going to be present, from now on, in every aspect of my life.

Don’t worry, I will introduce you to her, so stay tuned to meet my wonderful new friend, Ffion.

Truth is the Soul of the Sun

I have a huge affinity with all things ancient Egyptian, especially that pertaining to the magical.  I have had recall of a past life related to ancient Egypt with a remarkable degree of clarity.  I even remembered a name which allowed me to research the life of the person in question, which verified my recalled information, much to my amazement. The name I remembered was the name of my sister, Henutawy. My name was Meritamen. 

When I read books about ancient Egypt, it’s as though I already know it, I want to shout out, “Yes!  I know this!” with every new piece of information.  It feels like I’m waking up deep memories rather than learning new facts.

One of the most fascinating deities to me is Maat.  She is a Goddess, also a principle, a force, a concept of justice, truth and balance.  And truth is my subject of the week, so it seems reasonable to explore a little of what Maat has to teach.

In the ancient Egyptian world, everyone is a part of the cosmos.  As living beings, we have the ability to receive solar energy through the heart, to transform it and send it back out again.  One of the main ways people emit solar energy is through speech.  The ancient Egyptians believed that a harmonious flow of solar energy, when transformed into words, creates growth on many levels; inner growth and happiness and outer growth through physical and material prosperity.  They also believed that an obstruction of this flow of energy would mean a crisis; destruction, illness, misery and even death.  

Disease is a symptom of an imbalance in the life force energy, a substance produced by internal processes, created by the relationship between the individual’s Ba (personality/ego) and its Ka (soul), in other words by how freely the life energy called Maat enters and leaves the heart.  From the heart extend channels that link all the parts of the body.  Good health depends on the free flow of Maat and disease results from a blockage, whatever the cause.

The ancient Egyptians, like other ancient peoples, understood the importance of the proper flow of thought.  They also understood how physical, as well as non-physical exchanges bring wealth into our lives, in every sense of our being and energies.     

Maat is the divine force or energy that manifests through the sun and flows through the world.  Maat is the spirit of beauty and order.  Maat also represents truth and justice when, through people, she becomes the conscious exercise of faith in the transcendent creative power embodied in the solar disc.  Because Maat breathes life into everything, the more someone opens their heart, the healthier and happier they are as circumstances seem to magically to favour them. 

If a person suffers a head wound in a car collision, for example, the damage may be too great for their body to survive, which is different from illnesses caused by imbalance.  Stress created by fear has stopped many a heart that refused to listen to the calming reassurances of its soul.  And remember, fear is anything that isn’t love. 

Life, health and strength depends upon the unobstructed flow of Maat through the heart.  The heart receives cosmic energy and returns it in a mysteriously enhanced form to its divine source through the breath of enlightened speech.  That’s why it’s so important to know one’s truth and speak one’s truth.  People who are true of voice are healthier than those who lie, thereby blocking the circulation of Maat through their hearts and, as a result, through the world.  We may think we know when we are lying, but is that always so?  Much of the time, we are lying to ourselves in every sense, about who we are, who everybody else is and what the world is.  We are simply so oblivious of the fact, we think we live in truth when we don’t, and then are unable to account for all our ailments, misery and misfortune.  To live in truth is to live in love, there is no fear, no doubt, no worry, nothing but love.  We are love, that is our true nature, that is our truth.   

When Hatshepsut became Pharoah, she chose for herself her Royal name, as was the custom.  She chose the name Maatkare.  This name means ‘Truth is the Soul of the Sun’.  The information about Maat written above is taken from a wonderful book, one of my favourites.  By Maria Isobel Pita, it’s about Hatshepsut and called ‘Truth is the Soul of the Sun’.   

This beautiful image of Maat, with her symbol, the single ostrich feather tied to her head with a simple leather cord, is photographed by Sandro Vannini, Getty Images.
