Wandering Womb

Did you know that in the ancient world there was this idea that the womb could wander around inside a woman’s body?

The thought was, it was a being inside our being, a living thing, some called it an animal, some a beast.

Further, they believed it was sensitive to odours and would move towards pleasant smells and away from unpleasant ones. Thus, they treated a displaced womb by wafting scents over the body.

They postulated that a misplaced womb was the cause of hysteria.

Incredible, hey? There’s nothing like that in the body, is there? Well, actually there is a living being inside our bodies, and not only women. It’s not one that exists at the physical level. As you may know, energy manifests at various frequencies and as it becomes denser, it manifests at the noetic level, that’s the world of ideas, and then denser still at the emotional level and finally, densest of all, the physical.

There’s a great deal that exists on Earth at an emotional level but not physical, and yet has consciousness. Of course, the disbelievers will want material proof and that’s a problem, but many people have their own proof, called personal experience.

I’m referring to spirits, such as those our ancestors have experienced for tens of thousands of years. Our own departed loved ones. Mythical creatures such as unicorns and dragons. Angels and beings from the stars. And plant, tree, landscape and elemental beings.

And it’s of these last that I refer with regards the wandering womb. You see, every human, animal and living creature on Earth, not just plants and trees, has an elemental being attached to them from their birth to death.

This being has a job, the same, no matter what it’s attached to. It’s to support that entity in growing, living and expressing it’s divine blueprint.

Can you imagine what a difficult job elementals have with us humans? We, the ones with the free will to go our own way? We are least likely of all to live with a pure intention to express the divine on Earth, that is our blueprint. If we did, our bodies would be flexible, healthy, full of vitality and of the ideal proportions and weight.

Unfortunately, we abuse our bodies dreadfully, and our poor old elemental is overwhelmed by our behaviours that make its job untenable. The same is true of our mental and emotional selves, indeed, every expression of our being is tested to the limit. And then there’s our lifecycle and ways of living. No longer being conscious of our place within the web of life, no longer honouring the Earth and all our animal sisters and brothers, or the plants and trees, or the soil. No longer honouring ourselves or each other. We go through some vital transitions such as adolescence, life partnership, becoming a parent, menopause, retirement and death. In the past, there were rituals which informed and supported our elemental, allowing us to transition smoothly, but nowadays we mostly ignore these events.

What do you think all this misalignment with the emotional consciousness that guides all our systems might create? Yes, hysteria. In other words, a whole heap of common and severe mental health conditions. Not to mention physical conditions. So, maybe the ancient Greeks did have an inkling about what was going on.

If you could talk to your elemental, which you can, what would you say?

If you could hear your elemental, which you can by opening your channel and accepting what comes to you, what do you think it would say to you?

When I did this, the first thing I said was, “I’m so sorry.”

Holding Me in Arms of Love

It’s only recently that I’ve begun to understand the extent of the trauma created during my childhood years. At the age of sixty, it’s taken me a long time to get there because part of me has diminished what happened.

I suppose I never completely accepted it was that bad. Many people have a hard life, much worse than me, so I thought I should pull myself together and get on with it, and this attitude simply invalidated my childhood experiences.

Suddenly, I seem to have reached a place where it’s safe for it all to be revealed and I can finally hold it for myself without breaking down. There have been times over the years when I did break down, not realising what was underlying the emotional pain.

I’ve never shirked from facing, head on, what I call my personal development.  But I’ve been scratching the surface all this time.  For any of you out there who are facing a total mess coming up from inside, or even seemingly being brought about by life and circumstances around you, which is the same thing because of the law of attraction, you may know what I mean. 

It can feel like going backwards, like “what the…?!” It can feel like being broken, wondering what’s going on and what’s wrong with us. Well, there’s nothing wrong with us, we’re not special (except we are, we all are, but we’re not especially special for being messed up). We are finally finding ourselves in a place where we can begin to comprehend just how hurt we became. And not because anyone meant to hurt us, but because they were hurt themselves. And hurt people hurt others.

So much of the trauma has been stuck inside for such a long time and had nowhere to go, we haven’t got time for it, we need to get on with daily life. Therefore, a lot of that emotional wounding has no option but to manifest as physical conditions.

I am aware just how much our physical ailments are manifestations of the emotional wounds we carry. Emotional wounds need to be treated at the subconscious level because that’s where they exist. We grope about, trying to find physical solutions to our physical symptoms, the symptoms come and go like moods and what we thought was helping, suddenly isn’t anymore. Because the underlying original source is still untreated.

I’m more together now than I could have imagined. I’ve got a long way on my own merit. I’ve changed my life and brought a considerable degree of stability. And yet, that’s also allowed deeper layers to come to the surface and brought me to the awareness of just how damaged my childhood self really was.

So, I’ve decided to call in an expert in the field and get some help to clear it at this point. It pays to have somebody who can be objective and get a broader view of what’s there.

I’m really excited, I’m going to be working one on one with Jen Peters, and she’s one of the most amazing experts in the field of inner child healing. Someone who has the skills and tools, who can really validate and hold space. Someone who totally gets it because not only has she been there herself, she’s heard the same stories from others, over and over again. And she knows exactly what’s needed and how to deliver it.

I’m not alone and it makes a world of difference. Right now, it almost feels like I’m a child again and I’m being held safely in truly loving arms.

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.

How to Stop Worries, Anxieties and Depression

When I stop the world, I get into the stream of divine consciousness that the Welsh call Awen.  This word is not one that translates directly, but to me it means divine inspiration.  It’s like being an open channel most or all of the time. It’s a wonderful time to be creative and creative hands are healing hands. From the ancient wisdom of the elders, I learned that our hands are energetically linked to our heart and when we are moving and using our hands, we are healing our heart.  

To stop the world, I lean back into silence and solitude.  To begin with, my ego fights back, gets all antsy about being isolated and lonely.  But then, I stop engaging on that level and stop the world.  I sink into the peace.

Feeling lonely is only an emotion, an attitude, a state of mind, a choice, a judgement.  Like many other emotions, it’s not real. 

Stopping the world is a wonderful superpower to have.  You stop time.  You do this whenever you meditate or engage in any activity that brings your consciousness to a deeper level, like painting does for me.  And it’s maybe dancing, reading a book, listening to music or something else for you, those times when you drift off into a no-time zone. Because when we’re immersed in one thing in the now moment, we are stopping the world.

Stopping the world is another way to describe what I call conscious presence, when we’re totally aware and focused on the now.  That’s how you stop time.  Take your attention to what you see, hear, feel, smell, taste or touch right NOW.  Remain in the now moment with your perceptions and you stop time.  Focus completely on an object before you or study the back of your hand in minute detail, every crease, every hair, every freckle, every pore. There is no past or future when you do this. Therefore, there are no anxieties, because they are worries about what’s going to happen, and there’s no depression, because that’s ruminations about what has been.  In the now, everything is fine.    

When I stop time, then I find myself naturally existing within that stream of consciousness that feeds my soul.  Circumstances have led me to be out of contact with others, alone in my world most of the time, long enough to let go and let the power of that creative flow pour into my being, flood my mind, engage with emotions and coalesce as ideas and realisations.  Gosh, it’s so much better when my ego gives up and stops complaining.  All of a sudden, there are no problems, no obstacles, they just melt away.  Loneliness becomes peace, isolation becomes stillness, loss becomes bliss.

Surfing the Wave of Self Love

I’m hearing from several of my sisters that life is not easy at the moment.  There’s stuff coming up that needs dealing with, so much is presenting, so much to take on board.  Sometimes, it feels relentless, sometimes, we wonder if it will ever end, if we will ever find peace and stability again.  Yes, we will, we do.  But it’s a mistake to think that’s the goal.  Progress is not getting to a point where the difficult stuff no longer happens, progress is being with that stuff and being stable and finding peace when we are still experiencing it.  It’s not life that changes, it’s what we take to it.  It’s us that changes. 

When we’re in the thick of it, when the chaos is swirling all around, our thoughts and feelings are all over the place, we are so confused, we sometimes cannot tell the difference between truth and illusions.  We need to be able to hear our higher self guiding us but we can’t hear the voice, we are unable to differentiate the voice of our ego-personality, our wounded self, from our higher self at times like these. 

This is what we can do.  Write down the questions that are going around your head.  Maybe it’s about what direction you are being prompted to move forward in.  Maybe it’s about who is in your life that’s not serving you.  Maybe it’s about healing from the past.  Physical, emotional and mental conditions are your body’s way of letting you know there’s unresolved pain that needs your attention.  There will be themes, specific situations that trigger more pain, whether physical or psychological.  They are telling you what it’s about.

Although we have days that are really tough, we also get a break, days when we seem to be coping again and can get on with our life.  It’s easy to just fall back into life and forget about what just happened, but don’t.  Because you wrote those questions down, go to them now and spend a few moments letting what comes up be captured on paper.  You can allow your higher self to come to the fore now because you’re not triggered.  You can trust your intuition to give you your truth.  All you need do is move yourself aside, and that means moving aside your judgements, expectations, limitations and opinions for a few moments in order to see what your highest self has to say to you. This is a great skill to have and a wonderful way to gift yourself more of the love that you are.

I also wish to let you know this.  No matter how it feels, you are magnificent and you are in the right place, experiencing what is needed for your soul’s path.  It may not feel like it, but this is all okay.  This is all serving you and you are doing brilliantly.  You haven’t lost ground.  Things might feel like you have, but you haven’t.  If you’re walking through the dark night right now, you are on a difficult path but one that brings the biggest gifts and transformations. Believe in yourself, you are going to come out into the light again and you are going to level up. When you do, you will have gained such clarity that you will transform and become someone who embodies a new level of detachment and resilience.  You will then be able to surf across days like this, like riding a wave.

5 Reasons Why Grounding Will Change Your Life

You are an energy being.  You are always holding energy in your being, your body. 

When you move through the supermarket, the busy street, the café, bar or just a busy house full of happenings, you are picking up energy.  Some of that energy is enriching, some is nourishing and acting as wonderful fuel that fills up your chalice with love.

Much of it is surplus to requirements and some is not servicing you at all.

Energy can leave you spaced out.

Energy can leave you feeling overwhelmed.

It can change your core body temperature and make you over-heated.

It can express suddenly and unexpectedly as intense emotions such as sadness or anger that aren’t your own.

It can make you unstable, unbalanced and uncentred.

It can make you agitated.

It can manifest as physical sensations and symptoms of illness.

You may have thoughts that are not your own, perhaps unsettling ones.

It can make you emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually out of alignment.

Many people suffer unnecessarily because they don’t know how to ground or how important it is to do so.

Grounding is like dumping the excess energies that you pick up and that don’t nourish or enrich you.

Grounding is like taking your trash out so that you don’t have an unhealthy and unsanitary being and environment.

Grounding is anchoring your energy so that you are stable and balanced and centred.

Grounding connects you with Mother Earth and enriches your relationship with her.

Grounding is the means by which you can manifest all your heartfelt intentions into your life, when you send those intentions down into your Earth Star chakra to anchor.

It is the most simple thing to ground your energy at any time or place.  Simply take a moment to notice the energy in your body, you don’t have to do more than just be vaguely conscious of it and then send it down into the Earth.  You can do this by pushing it through the soles of your feet or your root chakra. 

Send it into the Earth to your Earth Star chakra, which is about 30 cm below your feet.  If you’re lying down, picture yourself standing and see yourself sending it down below your feet. 

That’s it.  If you want to make it more complicated, you can see your Earth Star chakra filling up with the energy to overflowing and then the energy flowing into the Earth in all directions.  Use your breath, as you breathe in, connect to the energy in your being, as you breathe out, push it down into your Earth Star chakra and into the Earth.  And you can also send it further down and give it to Mother Earth who will take it for you and transform it into love and light.

This is how you keep yourself centred and balanced.  This is how you keep yourself healthy and stable.

Do this daily or as often as you feel the need, it takes a couple of seconds.
