Showing Up To Love

Do you realise

If we are to attain oneness and unity

As a human race

Anytime soon,

We had better start opening the door of our hearts,

We had better start spreading the love,

Being that beacon of light.

We had better stop holding back,

Fearing rejection,

Being polite,

Protecting our feelings.

No holding back now,

Nothing but honest to goodness

Authentic expression

Of totally ‘out there’ feelings

That radiate

One hundred per cent

Unconditional

Non-judgemental

Beautiful

Powerful

Supreme

Love

Identity

Who we are is so arbitrary.

What country we were born in.

What family we were born in.

The name that was chosen for us.

The religion and culture that was attributed to us.

The aspirations that were handed to us.

It’s all so abstract.

None of it really belongs to us at all.

And knowing that is what freedom is.

Emergence Four – Awake!

Just look at my lady’s slipper orchid, two flowers in full bloom. It’s now May and yet, the first flower opened in December, around Christmas! Isn’t that remarkable? Every year previously they have flowered for three months, but this year they surpassed themselves.

There’s a real emergence going on for me right now too.

My journey has been feeling like a birth process that finally reached the last push. Years of difficult labour are past and the waters broke already so now I’m ready for what’s about to be born.

My life, particularly a childhood of trauma is being transmogrified into something beautiful and incredible, something made of the most potent rose pink love. And it’s who I am, not a woman called Ananda, but who I really am beyond names.

I woke up this morning and there it was. All the answers I’ve been waiting for over the years. Clear as crystal. There, in my head before I opened my eyes, my soul destiny.

I know what I’m waiting for. I know what to do and not do, who I am and who I’m not. I know my soul purpose and how to express it. And I can see why I wasn’t ready to know until I got to this point.

I did the healing and now it’s time to fulfil my soul purpose for the new Earth ascension.

Now it’s time to get busy, I’ve got things to do, places to go, people to see. I’m making things happen and know they’re just going to flow, as long as I stay on track, because the Universe wants this too.

Everything that was already there, tantalising me as half the story, it’s coming into full focus.  Everything is blossoming.  My soul baby has been born and now she’s going to grow.

I did the healing and now I’m ready, it’s time.

What’s emerging for you, right now?

How do you feel about it?

How is your understanding of self changing?

Imperfect Is The New Perfect

Get comfortable with what’s not perfect,

Allow what’s imperfect in your life, imperfect in you.

These are precious gifts.

They bring treasures as well as pain.

Pain and suffering are so valuable.

When you experience and allow pain

You create space for the joy you’ve been missing.

Your imperfect is beautiful,

Let imperfect be your perfect.

Making Pearls From Grit

“When you create yourself, at some point you’re going to have to either let that creation go and take a chance on being loved or hated for who you really are, or you’re going to have to kill who you really are and fall into your grave grasping onto a character that you never were.

What is the grit that the pearl is built around? The pearl is the personality that you build around yourself as a protection against the thought, “If they ever find out that I’m worthless, if they ever find out that I’m not enough, I’ll be destroyed.”

The avatar you create and the cadence you come up with that’s pleasing to people, it takes them away from their issues and makes you popular, and then at some point you have to peel it away. It’s not who you are.

This is what everybody goes through when they create themselves to be popular or successful. You act a certain way and say a certain thing and lie through your teeth at times, and you do whatever you need to do to look like a winner.

And then at some point in your life you have to say, “I don’t care what it looks like. I found the hole in the psyche and I’m going through and I’m going to face the abyss of not knowing whether that’s going to be okay with everybody or not.”

At some point, they’re going to try to drown you in the middle of that abyss. But no, be the other guy. You told us you were this guy, the character you built, but no one can live with that forever.

People sometimes exist so completely in their character, they maybe don’t know how to get out of it or how to take another road. So, they might take the ultimate road, where they actually have to leave the planet to get out.

All we really yearn for is our own absence. We yearn for what happens at death.

I don’t have to worry about that anymore. I truly feel like if you ask me where I live right now, where the real me is, I would say that there’s a quiet, gentle seat in the universe that seems to contain everything and that’s where I am.

I don’t want anything. I have no ambition. I don’t have to go anywhere. That’s fascinating to me now….. the disappearing.”

– words by Jim Carrey (from the film ‘Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond’)

Go Inside!

If you’re looking for peace, go inside

If you’re looking for love, go inside

If you’re looking for healing, go inside

If you’re looking for magnificence, go inside

If you’re looking for yourself, go inside

If you’re looking for the Creator, go inside

Go inside, inside, inside!

This message is arising everywhere but what does it mean?

What is meant by ‘inside’?

Where is inside?

How do I get there?

Perhaps you’re thinking, “It won’t work for me, I’ve got nothing inside!”

What does this mean, already?!

‘Inside’ means your energy, which is your very being.

That energy centres around your body,

It integrates all your chakras, including the ones above and below your body.

Just a reminder, starting at the top; your stellar gateway, soul star, crown, causal, third eye, throat, higher heart, heart, solar plexus, sacral, root and earth star chakra.

You are the whole of your being, extending through all the energy fields that surround your body

The qualities you are looking for could be found anywhere within your energy field.

This energy is the true ‘you’ and it holds all you are, all you have ever been and all you can become.

It holds your memories, your emotional self, your consciousness.

And it is connected to all-that-is.

You connect with this energy by sitting or lying in stillness and quiet, perhaps closing your eyes, allowing your breathing to deeply relax.

Then, your focus or awareness can naturally move inside and connect with your energy body, without even trying.

The more you do this, the more qualities you will release and uncover that are waiting to be accessed.

This is called mastery and it is your birthright.

This is what they didn’t teach you at school but it’s the secret to empowerment, freedom, abundance, vitality and ascension.

You may use guided journey scripts or simply go with your own inner guidance.

Call your personal angel, guides, your soul or higher self, according to your preference, and ask them to guide you.

Maybe you will imagine yourself walking into a cave or through a doorway.

What are you seeking right now? Is it peace, love, healing, your soul purpose? Whatever it is, ask to receive what will help you find it.

When we go within, quite often, emotions will come up, they need to. Let them come.

Thoughts or images will surface, watch and let them go, don’t hang on.

Ultimately, it’s one of most enriching forms of nurture you can give yourself.

Breathe through it all. Your breathing is most important here, it’s your vehicle for moving the energy through and releasing what you are letting go of. Release with your breath.

When you find something precious, anything you wish to integrate into your totality, breathe it into your entire being and down into your earth star chakra below your feet to anchor it into your energy there.

That’s where you store your treasures and from where you can send them out into the world and into the Earth to manifest for you.

If you believe there’s nothing inside you, you may get nothing until you let go of that idea.

The more you go inside in this way, the greater the transformation you will experience.

Ancestors

This is a photo of Alfred Elgar and Annie Jackson on their wedding day. They are my paternal grandparents.

I don’t know what year it is or who any of the other people are. The picture is a postcard, made out of a wedding photo and it was sent to Aunt Polly, Annie’s oldest sister.

I keep this picture on my mantelpiece to remind me of my ancestors every day.

Do you ever come across old photos like this of your ancestors?

Who do you count as your ancestors?

I was adopted, so my grandparents don’t share DNA with me, but we do share memories and we are family, the only family I have known.

I have often felt my grandfather looking out for me after he left this world for the next. When he was alive, he was a profound presence in my life, I really looked up to him and respected him, more so than anyone else. Even from my little girl perspective, I felt very much that he was a man with a big heart, a wise and kind man. In spite of this, I can’t think of a single person in my extended family who knew how to show love or express their emotions to any meaningful degree, and I don’t think my grandfather really saw me or understood me in the way I hoped either, not until after he passed on. Then, I guess he had a better view of me and my life and he started to take a special interest in supporting my journey.

I trust he can see the work I’m doing to uncover and heal the generational traumas in our family. Thank you, Grandpa, I feel you with me.

Singing Yourself Back Home

Although a certain amount of clarity can be perceived through the fog of life, there is always yet more awareness and understanding to come, when what was lost is found. What is lost is your truth, freedom and power, that which was stolen from you.

And now it is time to call those energies back. Keep calling the energies that belong to you home. Keep demanding that they are released by those who took them. It is time. It is time to call yourself home, to finally be complete and healed.

You have been waiting and this is now possible. When you have re-integrated all your missing energies that were lost and stolen, then, the full extent of your soul purpose will be seen, like a sun that emerges from behind a dark cloud.

And it will be magnificent. It will truly be blessed. You will herald it as a marvel. And there will be so much love and support available to you from every side. Then, you will become the fulfilment that is your soul’s destiny.

Right now, your greatest need is to sing yourself back home.

(Here is a LINK to a free resource from Jen Peters that guides you through calling your dissociated energy back home)

Feeling Into People

The way we experience people is mainly through the feeling they bring up in us.

Each person we meet, the feeling we get is greatly or slightly different.

And that’s how we have a different relationship with each person, compared to the relationship anyone else has with them.

Because our experience of that relationship consists of both the energy coming from them and the energy coming from within us, and what happens when those energies meet.

That’s a different unique experience for everyone we meet.

And, as you know, those energies can change, as our relationships change.

If our experience of each other is essentially expressed as a feeling, then, the feeling remains even if we’re apart, whether we’re in different rooms or different countries or even in different realms, between life and death.

The feeling will remain.

33 Steps To Align Your Connection With Earth

Today, we are taking a journey towards authenticity and interconnectedness with Earth.

Go through the following steps to activate a new relationship with Earth, Goddess Gaia and with yourself. By doing this mindfully, you are activating new programming that empowers your earth star chakra and awakens your deepest connection as a child of Earth.

Each step takes you closer to fulfilment.  The steps don’t have to be followed in the order they are arranged here, take each step as it presents itself to you.  You are not finished until you complete all the steps. If you can’t go out into nature to do this, it’s okay to visualise it.

Step 1 – Go out into nature and affirm, loud and clear, “I acknowledge and accept my connection to Earth.”  Really feel it.  When you make this acknowledgement, something fundamental shifts between yourself and the Earth.

Step 2 – Standing in nature, notice there are beautiful roots going down from your feet into the Earth, they extend through earth, sand, rock, crystal.  You become aware of the true beauty and wonder of Earth. Honour it, say out loud, “I actively honour the Earth.”

Step 3 – Go to any place you find beautiful in nature and really see it.  Breathe in the beauty.  Enjoy the beauty.  Be grateful for the beauty.  Know that all beautiful places are power spots, they are raising your energy simply by being there.

Step 4 – Go out in nature and walk on the Earth with awareness, knowing it’s a two-way connection.  As you’re walking, be very aware of your energy going right down into the planet, and at the same time, know you are receiving energy back from the Earth. 

Step 5 – Actively give your light to Earth through your twelve chakras. Go into nature and call on Archangel Michael and ask for protection. Now, standing still, open your stellar gateway chakra above your head, allowing the light to pour through it. Next, open your soul star chakra. Then open your causal chakra, your crown chakra, your third eye chakra, your throat chakra, your higher heart and heart chakras. Notice your inner light pouring down and through your chakras as you open them. Now open your solar plexus chakra, your sacral chakra and your base chakra. Allow all the light energy to flow down through the open channels of your chakras and into your earth star chakra below your feet in the Earth. See and feel the light coming right down through your chakras and then spreading out beneath your feet, at your earth star chakra, in all directions. It’s spreading peace and harmony.

Step 6 – Standing in nature, sense roots going down through your feet and into the Earth.  Within the Earth, there is a crystalline chamber at the core and there stands Goddess Gaia.  She is like a great light and your roots are going down and connecting your energy into her heart.  Her love is coming up into your earth star chakra, filling it with her love.  And then her love and light come up through your chakras into your heart centre, filling your heart with her love. 

Step 7 – Take a fruit that you enjoy.  Hold it in your hand.  Smell it, feel it, bless it and thank it.  Really appreciate and honour it. 

Step 8 – Go out into nature to touch and feel the soil.  Pick up the rich earth, smell it, feel it.  Enjoy the wonderful feeling of beautiful, fertile soil running through your fingers. Share a deep sense of gratitude and love for this earth, honour it and bless it.

Step 9 – Go out and find a special tree.  Feel, hold and touch the tree.  Thank it for being there and for all that it does for humanity, Mother Earth and the source of all-there-is. As you share your love and gratitude, sense the love that the tree is sharing with you. Honour your tree and all trees.

Step 10 – Go out and find an acorn, chestnut or any other tree seed.  Ask the elementals to show you where to place it in the Earth to grow. Give your love and blessings to it. 

Step 11 – Go out into nature and find a place where it feels totally safe to walk barefoot.  Feel the Earth, grass or sand beneath your feet.  Notice how you feel connected to the Earth when you are barefoot.  Know that this connection is activating your earth star chakra.    

Step 12 – Go out and find a flower, whatever flower presents itself to you.  What colour is it?  What does it smell like?  Gently stroke a petal and thank that flower for being in your life.

Step 13 – Go out and find a place where there’s water.  Paddle in the stream or sea, stand by a lake.  Water is sacred, water carries the pure, unconditional love of the divine source around the world.  Bless that water.  Bless it whether it’s a puddle, a raindrop, an ocean or a river.  Bless the water that you shower or bathe in, that you drink, that washes your excrement away in the toilet, bless the water that constitutes your body. 

Step 14 – Go outside and take a deep breath, this is prana, it gives you life, it is your connection to source.  Breathe in, knowing that you are alive through your breath. Give thanks for the air that you breathe every day. 

Step 15 – Be with fire, it may be in your hearth, an outside fire pit or bonfire, or candle flames.  See the flames flickering and crackling and transmuting old energy.  Know that every flame is clearing something, leaving just ashes behind.  Be aware that something brand new is replacing the old.  And be aware of how awesome and powerful the transmuting power of fire is. Honour the fire energy.

Step 16 – Go outside into nature and invite the creatures and animals to come to you.  Sit quietly, lovingly and harmlessly.  Because you are harmless, animals and creatures will approach you.  A squirrel, an ant, whatever comes, see their beauty, see their amazing qualities.  Notice which animals came to you and thank them for coming.

Step 17 – Go outside into nature to a suitable place with the intention of honouring the reptiles.  Sit quietly, lovingly and harmlessly.  See what comes to you, maybe a lizard or snake.  Whatever comes, know they are totally harmless.  See their beauty and amazing qualities.  They each bring gifts and are a teacher.  Thank them for coming.

Step 18 – Go outside with the intention of connecting with the birds.  Stand or sit and let the birds come and fly around you.  Songbirds singing to you of the daily news and your magnificence.  A bird of prey soaring high in the sky, demonstrating clarity and perspective.  All the birds are teaching us about freedom.  Thank the birds from your heart.

Step 19 – Go to a green and leafy place.  Notice all the beautiful greens of healing nature surrounding you.  Marvel at the process of photosynthesis and how it keeps us alive.  Feel a sense of wonder for the greenery around you, how uplifting and refreshing it is.  Thank the leaves and ferns for all they give.

Step 20 – Go to a place in nature where there’s a rock.  You might sit on it.  It’s an ancient stone, solid and enduring.  It may have been there for millions of years, keeping and recording the history of that place.  Sit there with it and tune into it.  Maybe it has a message for you.  Thank the rock and send it your blessing.

Step 21 – Go to a place where there are crystals.  Your task is to send healing to the Earth where crystals have been dug out.  Be aware of the crystals that have developed deep, deep in the Earth, holding so much light.  Take a moment to send healing energy deep into the Earth where crystals are removed.  Send your love and gratitude to all crystals that allow themselves to be brought to the surface to fulfil a calling and that offer healing and transformation for the Earth and humanity.

Step 22 – Go outside when the stars are bright in the sky.  Sense their link to Earth and how all is interconnected.  How do the stars influence you?  Notice how vast the cosmos is and how every single star is relevant to the whole.  Send your loving gratitude and blessings to all the stars.

Step 23 – Go to the sea and call forth the dolphins.  Whether you see them or not, know they are there, hearing you.  Can you sense the compassion and healing heart that all dolphins have?  Sense and acknowledge the loving, healing compassion offered by the dolphins to you.  Thank them sincerely and extend to them your blessing.    

Step 24 – Go to the sea and be aware of all the ocean life and fish, all in their place, all doing their bit to support the vast oceans.  Every kind of fish and sea creature has a role, so thank them all for their important roles, honour them and the ocean.

Step 25 – Be still and bring to mind the entirety of the planet and all of humanity.  Every single person on Earth, like yourself, received an invitation from Goddess Gaia to be here and for many, it’s a very difficult journey.  Take a moment to honour and recognise every courageous soul that came here, whether they are good or bad in our perspective.  Honour everyone for being here.

Step 26 – Take a moment to be still.  Be aware that everything and everyone is a part of the divine source.  All are one.  Truly, deeply recognise this. Take a moment to offer your gratitude to all-that-is.

Step 27 – Go outside and feel the sun on your skin, even though you cannot look directly at it, you can feel it.  Thank the great and glorious sun for all it does, bringing warmth and light to Earth and us all.  Honour the sun.  

Step 28 – Go outside under the full moon and honour the moon.  The silvery moon is lighting up the world with gentle, soothing and healing light throughout the night.  Take a moment to thank and honour the moon.

Step 29 – There are many structures built by our ancestors that are created as energy portals.  Such are called chambered cairns, stone circles, pyramids.  Go to such a place if you can and acknowledge that it was built by wise ancestors who understood a deep and abiding connection with Earth.  Feel the connection.  Honour all these structures and their builders. 

Step 30 – Go to the mountains.  They hold high energies and beings dwell there that sing out harmonics and raise the frequency of the world.  Honour these vast places and sense their awe. Ground it through your earth star chakra.

Step 31 – Go to the forest, know that all forests of the world are connected by a great network of underground, invisible fibres and roots.  The forests are a huge library of knowledge, holders of cosmic information.  A storehouse of wisdom.  Be aware of the vast forests on Earth, honour them and give gratitude for their many gifts.

Step 32 – Go within and honour the invisible world.  The unseen shares our space.  All around us, at all times, there are elementals, angels, dragons, unicorns and spirits of all kinds.  They are helping us raise our energies, guiding us. Take a moment to thank and honour them all, for they support and illuminate our way.   

Step 33 – Go within and accept the other dimensions.  We live in a world that exists as much more than just physically.  We are multi-dimensional, multi-faceted and are surrounded and interwoven with other multi-dimensional energies and beings.  Accept them all as a part of your reality and experience, for it is the truth of your being. 

When you have fulfilled all these steps, you will have awakened light-codes and blueprints that exist within your energy field, that will refresh and reset your purity and perfection as a daughter or son of Earth.

Blessed Be.
