Calling in the Temple of Light

Imagine a Temple of Light.  A round, white tower, short and squat, with a domed roof.  There is a circular glass aperture in the centre of the domed roof, through which enters the sun’s rays and the glittering starlight of the darkest night.

Inside, a circle of nine sit together.  Each of them is a powerful energy-worker.  Collectively, they make the air crackle with their unified power.  They are deep in meditation.  There is a low hum in the air, a vocalisation brought forth from the throats of several present.  And there is the clear, piercing ring of a singing crystal bowl which seems to roll around the walls, a tone that thrusts deep into the heart of all who hear it. 

Most would not have sight to see, but there are fine white fibres, like roots, extending from the root chakras of the nine and probing deep into the earth. There is a column of golden light, within which each person sits, creating a circle of nine golden columns. There are nine cones of purest white light, each extending from the crown of a head, expanding more and more in the shape of a V as they rise up into the cosmic heights. There is a waterfall of light descending through the glass roof and falling into the centre of the circle, creating a puddle of liquid light that flows over the floor. The light is mostly white, with rainbows and specks of gold. The puddle of light spills to every part of the room.

The sense of peace in this room is deeply profound. The depth of love in the room would be almost unbearable for some. The power in this room is tangible.

There are many others here, unseen to the untrained eye.  They are the spirit guides, souls, soul family and loved ones in spirit of the nine.  There are angels present, dragons and unicorns.  There are elemental beings who are the consciousness of nature.  There are ascended masters, Goddess beings, star beings.  They are here to lend support and many are excited to be witness to this moment.  And there are people sitting around the edge, on cushions with their backs against the wall.  They are here from near and far because they wish to participate, to experience the peace, the love, the light, the truth, the healing.

The nine are ordinary people whose gifts include a deep connection with the vibration of the divine source.  Not only given but accepted and embraced by each of them.  Practiced and dedicated they are.  Committed to service.  They work with many energies for the healing, awakening and ascension of Mother Earth and all that is upon, above and within the Earth, invisible and visible.  And also for humanity. 

Right now, they are receiving light matrix energy templates for grounding and anchoring the healing of traumas for the entirety of humanity.  Through them, collective trauma is being healed for all.

Tomorrow, they will sit together to extend the understanding and ability to connect, communicate and co-create with the intelligence in all plants and trees. So that all those on Earth can see, sense or feel the presence of the elementals, tree and plant spirits and nature beings. And so people on Earth can connect with those energies to support the Earth’s ascension.

Each day, the nine come together to channel and express their love, light and power because the Temple of Light exists to fulfil this purpose.  They are a beacon, a model for all who come.

And this is my dream, for I am one of the nine.  This is what the new Earth ascension blueprint revealed to me in Spring 2020. I send out love and gratitude that this shall exist in the physical as it exists in the etheric.  I send out energy to draw this to me now.  This, I anchor as my soul purpose.  This, I am calling into existence now.  And if you have access to any of the energies required to bring this to fruition, please let me know.

Let it be so.

The Power of the I Am Presence

Within each soul and extending from the divine source, the I Am presence energy exists.

Integrate with your I Am presence through the power of positive self-talk.  Bring this transformative tool into your meditation time and into your everyday life. 

I Am statements are activations that allow us to connect with purer aspects of ourselves, aid our spiritual awakening and enable the most beautiful inspiring, loving and healing vibrations.

I Am statements are what we already are, although we have not fully realised or embodied them yet. With I Am statements, we are waking ourselves up, we are inviting those energies to come to the fore. We are sending out a prayer for what we wish to embrace from within ourselves.

Here are the empowering I Am statements that came through for me during my most recent vision quest:

I am ready.
I am completely claiming my full power.
I am accepting and embracing my potency.
I am channelling the light of the Creator into the Earth for humanity.
I am energised.
I am me.
I am listening to my heart.
I am recognising my insights and intuitions as the truth and wisdom they are.
I am humble before the greatness of the Universe.
I am ready to be taken apart and put back together again.
I am trusting myself completely.
I am incomparable.
I am healed from all past limiting beliefs, thoughts, feelings and behaviours.
I am healed.
I am spirited.
I am my healed and integrated inner children.
I am my inner crone.
I am a force.
I am the raging storm and the still peace at its core.
I am one who sweeps through the world surrounded by a vortex of supreme energy.
I am my best self.
I am my truth.
I am following the path laid before me by my soul.
I am walking boldly through the deepest night.
I am playful.
I am creative.
I am harmony.
I am a shining light.
I am a blazing fire.
I am seeing with eyes of enhanced love.
I am expressing the gifts of my heart.
I am listening to my heart.
I am acting from my heart.
I am walking meditation.
I am divine abundance.
I am bliss.
I am serenity.
I am light. I am love. I am truth. I am my power.
I am one with my soul.
I am one with the Creator.
I am complete.
I am gifting myself to all.
I am letting go.
I am carrying the secrets of my ancestors within.
I am the I Am presence.
I am one with all.
I am eternally now.
I am my best self.
I am ready to embrace the truth of my being when I am low and my days are a struggle, when my energy and creativity is not flowing.
I am ready to embrace the truth of my being when I am filled to overflowing with the love and light of the divine.
I am ready.

About Your Spirit Guides

Your guides are your own personal spiritual support team.

Some of them may be with you for life

Some may come and go as you need them.

Sometimes, as we grow spiritually, we attract more guides to our side.

They aren’t there all the time, but they will come whenever you call.

And they will come when you do something they can help with.

Guides are specific, they each have a speciality

There are guides for healing, for music, for writing, for cooking, for art.

There are guides for meditation, for finances, for swimming, for drumming.

There are guides for running, for singing, for medicine, for working with plants or crystals or trees.

You name it, there are guides for it, they exist on the inner planes, in energy bodies, they have been trained and have dedicated themselves to help you and others. 

Your guides work with many people, not only you and we each have a different combination of guides, depending on our focus and the activities we engage in that attract guidance.

There’s no time or space on the inner planes so they can be anywhere, everywhere at once. 

So, don’t worry about over-working them, you can’t.  Don’t worry about taking up all their time, they don’t exist in time so have all the time in the world for you and the entirety of humanity, if needed.

If you’re a healer, when you’re healing, one or several experts in healing will be with you, inspiring you, working through you if you invite them.  When you dance, if you’re a dancer or dance is your way of expressing your truth, an inner planes dancer will channel through you to support your work. 

So, when you do things that are your soul path, your passion, your truth, get out of the way and let your guides do their work, let them come through and you will be surprised at what you produce, how easily it flows. 

You don’t need to get to know your guides intellectually, but if you wish to know them better, meditate. Visualise a special place and imagine going there to meet one of your guides at a time. Ask your guide to share some information or just sit with them and feel the energy. 

Your guides are not the ones who are your constant support, that’s coming from your angelic support, your soul and soul group, also from your loved ones in spirit. Your soul group are the beings you came from, or more correctly, came through, since you came from the divine source. You could say they are your soul’s family. They are a collective energy through which your soul extended.

Your soul group are always available to you, always loving you and ready to support you. And not only them but others who you might wish to call your affiliate soul family. These are beings and collective energies who have been present with your soul for much of your soul’s journey, very closely and from a place of deep love. Your soul may have worked with or learned from them, perhaps you have been together over many, many lifetimes. They are like most dearest friends who are akin to your family. Even now, you may well be visiting with your soul group or affiliate soul family during your sleep time.  

Your guides are the ones who inspire you and help your ideas, intuition, skills and abilities to blossom and grow. They support your ascension and help you unfold your soul’s purpose.  But when you call out and say; “Help me, I am struggling, I need your love, your peace, your blessing and healing today,” you are not addressing your guides but talking to the Creator, to your soul, your soul group or your personal angel.  

And you can call on others from the inner planes too, maybe ascended masters, archangels, star beings, goddess beings or your very own loved ones in spirit who have chosen to be there for you. Take time every day to connect, they are all your very own spiritual support team.  You are blessed and you are never alone, the more you tune in, the more you will know this.

Go Inside

Go Inside

Be with yourself

Enter your being

Inside is the universe, the cosmos, all-that-is

There, is all you need

I cannot tell you what you will find in you

I only know what I find in me

And then, only the tip of my iceberg has been uncovered

It’s a gift that keeps on giving

I know this:

Inside is love,












Truly, inside is everything and anything you could ever need, require or desire

Go inside

It’s a prayer

A meditation

An invocation

A call for support

Go inside

It’s where you go to prepare

For your battles,

To find your silence,

Heal your wounds,

Ignite your passion

Go inside to find yourself

Go inside to find God

Go inside and find your centre, your balance, your stillness, your peace

Crystal Prayer for Afghanistan

A beautiful woman called Diana Cooper put out a post on FB which gave an exercise for crystal healing for Afghanistan.  She suggested a selection of stones and crystals that exist naturally in the region and gave guidelines for connecting with them, in order to increase peace, freedom and other wonderful qualities in a troubled country. 

Somebody left a comment; “I don’t think crystals would do the trick, genuine prayer would change Afghanistan.”

Somebody replied; “This is a prayer.”

A reply came back; “Do you think I have to pray to crystals or to God?”

And to that, I say now what I said then:

From where I’m looking the Creator is in everything, the Creator is everywhere, the Creator doesn’t have ego and receives all prayers that come from the heart, whether using the Creator’s name or not.  The crystalline consciousness is another expression of the Creator, dedicated to the divine will and divine plan of the Creator.  Nothing happening here is taking place separately from God, it’s just a question of really seeing God.

And now I’d like to share Diana’s crystal healing technique:

If you have one of the below crystals or gems, touch it.  If not, look at a picture of it or write the name of the crystal or simply think about it.

Bless it.

Think about the spiritual qualities of the stones (listed below).

Ask the stone to connect to the same type of crystal or gem in Afghanistan, radiating their qualities to all the people there, Afghans and Taliban.

Mentally say, “Let there be peace and freedom in Afghanistan”.

Know that you are making beneficial energetic, spiritual links to raise the frequency of Afghanistan and its people.

SAPPHIRE – deep blue.  This is the materialised energy of Archangel Michael and offers protection, strength and courage.

EMERALD – bright green.  This is the materialised energy of Archangel Raphael and touches people with healing, abundance and expanded consciousness.

RUBY – red with gold.  This is the materialised energy of Archangel Uriel and brings vitality, peace, confidence and wisdom. 

LAPIS LAZULI – deep blue.  Lapis promotes protection, peace, harmony, healing, truth and honest communication.

TOPAZ – mid blue.  Topaz helps people attune to their Higher Self and promotes honesty and openness.  It offers purification and brings joy, abundance and good health.

AQUAMARINE – light sea green-blue.  Fosters tolerance, calm, relaxation and cleansing.  It helps you to trust and let go.

GARNET – usually dark red.  Garnet re-energises and strengthens, bringing safety and abundance.  It supports higher thinking and self-empowerment.

TOURMALINE – usually black.  This is a grounding stone that helps you connect to the Earth for stability.  It promotes reconciliation and tolerance.  It also encourages healing and good relationships.

FLUORITE – multi-coloured.  Fluorite aids spiritual connections, positivity and intuition.  It encourages self-confidence and balance, absorbing and dissolving lower energies and stress.

KUNZITE – pink to violet.  This beautiful crystal brings love, joy and self-worth.

QUARTZ – white.  Spiritual growth, spirituality, inspiration, concentration, harmony.

Chai, My Brave Warrior

My cat Chai is a beautiful big male tabby and he’s a gentle giant. Chai has been unwell recently and I’ve been worried about him. His back legs keep giving way and he looks sad and lost, seeking love and comfort, so we decided he needs blood tests to find out what’s going on. Trouble is, Chai is a severely anxious cat and nothing is worse for him than going in his cat carrier, which is needed to get him to the vets.

Every time we have taken him to the vets previously he has hyper-ventilated, panting, drooling, urinating and looking like his eyes are going to pop out.  When he reaches the vet, they can’t treat him because of the state of him.  Sedatives don’t work so this time, I did something different, I prayed.

He was lying on the bed by my side and as I stroked him I called on the angels, the Archangels, St Francis of Assisi and any being who supports animals and is in tune with the love of the divine source. I asked them all to help Chai. I asked them to immerse him in healing, loving light and bring him comfort and strength, to keep him within the energies of trust and calmness, and it was in the moment of his utter relaxation that we brought in his carrier and quickly and gently lowered him in.

Soon, we were in the car and driving the 7 miles to the vets. I glanced at Chai, he was doing well, he wasn’t panting, his eyes were big but he had never coped so well before. As he got more agitated I called in the energies to calm and reassure him and he settled again. The vet said he was better than he had ever been, he was shaved and bloods were taken, only then did he start to really panic but soon he was on his way home and I was so proud, so pleased for him that he had held it together and coped so well. I am grateful to the power of prayer and wondered that I hadn’t thought of doing that on previous visits.

The tests came back clear and it looks like his problem is rheumatoid arthritis which I’m treating with sound therapy. However, soon Chai makes a huge journey, 2 hours or more in the car to travel to his new home. He is moving house and so, when he arrives after the long journey, he will be in a strange new house and won’t be allowed outside for a while. Which is going to be interesting because he’s not a litter tray user, he likes to use nature’s toilet. It’s going to be a massive deal for Chai but we’re doing everything we can to prepare him for it.

Both my cats are trained on a bell. I ring the bell to call them inside and, more often than not, they come. They never go far and prefer to be in the garden accompanied. When they hear the sound of my coffee machine grinding the beans, they know we are going out for our daily walk together. They set off ahead of me through the garden to a nearby bench overlooking a far-reaching countryside view of rolling hills and open skies. Poppy, my little calico cat jumps on my lap for a cuddle whilst Chai stays by my feet, keeping a sharp eye out. I started this little ritual to keep them moving because they both get a little stiff in the legs and now we all love it.

It’s not true that cats can’t be trained, but I think it depends on the cat. Poppy will sit and wait on command when I’m putting her food out. But Chai, no chance, he doesn’t have a clue what I’m asking of him, bless him. Both my cats really are the most adorable and loving little cat souls.

When we arrive in their new home, I’m hoping they will come for a walk with me the first time they go outside and we’ll go to the little park next to the house, where I can sit on a bench with Poppy on my lap whilst Chai acts as look-out. They will be away from a road and surrounded by farm fields but I know they’re going to miss their garden and territory, so we’re taking one of their big scratching logs from the garden. 

As for the arduous journey, every time Chai’s totally relaxed and contented, I play him a piece of music on my iphone, it’s Rife frequency music which is used to treat arthritis and so far it seems to be working. I’m hoping he’ll also identify the music with calm, relaxed moments so that when I play it in the car during the journey it might help him cope with the stress of being in the cat carrier for so long.

Then, after a few days it will be time for me to say goodbye as I go to my new house and leave them in theirs. I’m not thinking about that yet, just enjoying every moment we have together until the time comes.

Conscious Breathing: First Skill for Life

I’ve decided to begin a mini-series of posts which cover the fundamental skills, tools and practices that enable us to move forward as multidimensional beings.

Today, it’s conscious breathing, something most of us use and I hope many children are getting to learn this basic but powerful practice, because it does so much for us and is the backbone of so many spiritual techniques.

Breathing is the only bodily system that can either be consciously or unconsciously operated.  When we focus on our breathing, we can use it to take us into a state of calm, even to a state of altered consciousness that enables our entry into realms beyond everyday reality.  So, when we do this and then call our guides, our soul, soul group, angels, or whichever kind of support we choose, we are open and more receptive because of it.    

The key to conscious breathing is the speed at which we breathe, not the depth or amount of breath we take in.  If we slow our breathing down as much as we can whilst remaining relaxed and comfortable, then we will automatically trigger a natural bodily system that makes us calm and peaceful, even when we are anxious, stressed or emotional.  It’s like having a magic switch.  And we only need do this for a short number of breaths before we experience improved physical body sensations, emotions and thoughts.  Thoughts can be the last and more difficult to achieve but once the body starts to calm down, the mind will soon follow, especially if we back up the breathing with some affirming statements like “I am now existing at the centre of my inner peace”.

I recommend using slow conscious breathing many times a day until your body gets so used to it that it becomes unconscious.   Try a counting technique, breathing in over a count of five seconds, holding the breath for a count of five and breathing out over a count of six seconds.  If that’s too much of a stretch to start, use a lower count that works for you and work up to it.  Do this little and often throughout the day to keep your body and mind calm and relaxed.  Use it in the evenings to ease yourself into a sleep-state.  Just a few rounds of this kind of breathing at a time will make the world of difference.  I have known people using this technique to find it a real blessing, making a difference in their ability to cope with pain, whether emotional or physical, over-thinking and worry, anxiety and depression, the list goes on.  People say it empowers them.  Try it and see what it does for you.     

Conscious breathing is easily coupled with visualisation, prayer, activations, invocation, healing and shamanic journeying, to name but a few methods of expanding our energy whilst receiving and sending love and light.  It’s a personal tool for improved wellbeing as well as the first fundamental skill of the spiritual warrior, lightworker, healer and all who are on their soul journey.

Going Through The Darkness

How bad can it get, the dark side?  How bad has it got for me?  How bad has it got for you?  How wounded are we?  How damaged do we feel? 

I and several others I know, to varying degrees, have been through the dark night of the soul.  That dark night might last years, which is a long time to believe you are losing it, that you have finally flipped and no longer have a grip in normality or sanity.  Days of lethargy, anxiety and dread, nights of despair, deep depression and profound aloneness.  Losing the ability to perceive truth from illusion, to know your own mind, to trust your instincts.  Losing perspective and one’s inner compass.  Losing stability, balance and grounding.  Losing hope, faith and love.  Arriving in a dark hole where the only thought you have is the deep desire to not live another day.  You wonder if it’s time to see a psychiatrist and take the drugs, if you haven’t already, you cleanse your home and all your possessions for fear you’ve been cursed.  And you pray, oh, how you pray, not realising your prayers were always being answered, even though, no, because nothing changed.  Yeah, it got bad enough. 

When I felt like that, day after day, I felt like a failure.  I believed I was worthless and that nobody could possibly love me.  But then, I couldn’t love myself.  I was supposed to be strong, to be spiritually evolved (huh) and I was supposed to be better than that (yeah, I know).  That’s in the past, but not that long ago and I write about it now because, if you are or ever have felt like this, I want you to know you are not the only one and it’s a lot more common than you would believe. 

And it does end, however bad, crazy, difficult it gets, it’s okay.  Don’t fight, just let it flow and be with it.  Hold space for it, as crazy as that may sound.  If you can, it will be over sooner and you will learn and heal faster.  I was slow on the uptake, I was a fighter, I made a lot of fuss and indulged in my suffering like a fool.  I always did take the long road.  I know better now, at least, I’ll find out the next time it comes around.  At the time, everything went out the window.  The darkness obscured it all.  I got involved you see, engaged with pity, fed my story and indulged my victim self.  I listened to my inner judge and fought like a wild animal when I should have lain down with it like a lamb, sat with it, invited it in, loved it as the teacher it was.

Now, I look back over that time and can see the lessons, I see the landscape I walked through and how I was finally unburdened by my journey through darkness.  Now I know every moment was a gift, truly. I called for it, I asked for the fast-track to my spiritual evolution and got it.  Now, I can say I love myself and finally, I no longer give myself away. Now, I will meet you in a space called love and share my light, my energy, but it won’t deplete me because I am whole and there is nothing I need that I can’t find inside of me.
