Dear soul sister,
Happy New Moon to you and I hope you’re coming up to the surface after some pretty intense couple of weeks. So much is happening both outside of us and inside. I’ve been listening to the stories told by the Syrian refugees and my heart aches for them. I have also seen the incredible outpour of love and support for them and this makes my heart expand with joy and hope.
My word for this year is FREE and it always amazes me how when we say yes to something all the ways in which we are saying no to it come up. This year I’ve had to face all the ways in which I am not free. I believed that the things that were holding me back were external things like money, time and space but the more I let go of these obstacles, the clearer it becomes how these things were just excuses.
When I release all the external blocks I realize that the only one holding me back is… me.
I drift in and out of these realizations and have experienced total bliss and faith in moments of great turmoil in my life but these past weeks my inner blocks have become so obvious.
When I ask for something new to come into my life or when I really want something to change I know that the first step is always to let go, release and clear the energy I’m currently holding on to.
I’ve been through some really challenging times in my life and the most important one was when my dad died. I was only 7 years old and in order to protect myself and my family I created a strong armour around me. This made me feel safe and prevented me from taking in any more pain or heartbreak. What I didn’t realize at the time was that it also numbed me out so I didn’t feel very much at all.
It wasn’t until many years later that I started to slowly let go of this protection and started to FEEL again. Feeling all the feelings can be terrifying when you aren’t used to it. So I took my time. I went to energy healers, started to open up and share how I felt with others and it’s been a sometimes steady, sometimes wobbly journey.
My first reaction when something is difficult in my life is still to close down or leave my body. But I am now conscious of this and remember to bring myself back and allow myself to feel. I know how lonely and isolating it can be to not feel and not share with others. This journey of rediscovering who we are and finding our place in this world is an ongoing practice.
What I do know is that when we have the right tools and loving, kind and compassionate support this journey becomes a truly amazing adventure. When I teach my my program Clear Your Path & Shine we always start by a releasing ritual. In order to invite something new in we must be willing to let go of what we no longer need.
I now love doing these inner journeys to release and clear out all the old patterns and stories that I carry. When I feel myself holding on so tightly because I am afraid of what it will fel like to surrender I know it’s time to do it. When we hold on we also close down the support that is always here for us.
If you are trying to keep yourself together by trying harder, working more or pushing through I invite you to stop. Press pause, put down the weight you are carrying and surrender to something greater than you. TRUST that what you need will come to you, with ease and flow.
If you are tired of doing the same things over and over and you would like to learn a new way of doing (more being and less doing), I would love for you to join us as the doors to Clear Your Path & Shine open on October 5.
When I connect in with my heart, I can feel the desire to be as clear and open as possible. This is how I will transform and change my world. My deepest wish for you is that you find a way to clear your energy too so you can step into your own beautiful light and fully SHINE.
I believe that we are all here to live a life on purpose.
I believe in you finding your own inner light.
I believe in YOU.
Together we will change the world.
Together we are ONE.
With so much love and gratitude,
