The River of Life…

There’s a fast-flowing river of anxiety and fear moving around the world at the moment. We’re all dipping our toe in the water now and then, and sometimes we get swept away with the strong current. Imagine yourself sitting on a grassy slope by that river, being the observer, what would you see?

Immediate Space

Some people are reacting with great fear, others with an almost cavalier nonchalance – both are valid responses however, neither are conducive to healing. These responses are protective mechanisms that we lean on to get us through rough times, the thing is – this rough time is going to go on for longer than we’d like, so the response you have to it must be calm, discerning, measured and immediate.

The Life Tree

I have grieved for my Father, my Mother, my brother, and my nephew. While each loss felt different, I knew each to be like an energetic amputation that left me changed. It feels like you are smaller, sometimes my edges were jagged, sometimes they were soft and porous. Sometimes my body would feel unreal to me, lighter, nebulous, sometimes it would feel heavy, burdensome.

‘Pray Rain’ for Australia

Jupiter in Capricorn – a reflection of what we are experiencing here in Australia. Jupiter is expansive, excessive, abundant, and is associated with the element of fire. Capricorn is associated with the element of earth, it’s Guide (Ruler) is Saturn, which is associated with restraint, boundaries, containment. Bringing these two energies together it’s not hard to see the connection to the fires ravaging this country.

Words to Nibble on…

So back to the book in my hand… each page is like a magic carpet with all the threads moving and undulating over a luminous aether of unseen energy. I gently turn the page and I’m struck by the little moment of joy, excitement, anticipation – the unknown words that are about to enter me via my eyes, my mind, my heart.

The True Kindess of Money & Muffins…

For some reason we are hard-wired to reject compliments but to accept and receive criticisms. We somehow believe that if we say ‘yes thank you, I love my hair also’ that we are being vain and that’s just not so. We may feel we must quickly offer them a compliment in kind, but this is in effect ‘mirroring’ their gift back and is a cunning way to not fully receive the gift offered to you by them. It’s like letting someone buy you a coffee and immediately reimbursing them for it.

Do Good Habits Drink Herbal Tea?

Whatever beliefs you are wanting to change, you can do it. We’re not static beings, we’re dynamic and ever-changing. We are beings of unlimited power – living in a cage of our own making, a cage made of our beliefs about ourselves and the world we perceive with our senses. Make the change, it doesn’t mean you have to don a flying suit and jump off a mountain, it just means you can become the person you know is hiding inside.

A Dandelion in the Gutter…

I wonder if she realised how important that moment was to someone sitting in a car not 2 metres away… I doubt it, but then we never really know how our existence can impact another person, especially those we haven’t met. While she was experiencing the dandelion, I was experiencing her, experiencing the dandelion…

Do Bad Habits Drink Tea?

Self-Imposed Limitations are like unwanted house guests – we invite them in for cup of tea only to realise they’re staying the night and before you know it they’ve become part of the furniture and the idea of living without them is too hard to bear…so we keep them around.

The Reiki Precepts, a Path to Awakening…

This is how we should use the Precepts; they are the ‘finger pointing to the Moon’ – we should use them to grow into our Awareness but don’t consider for a moment that they are the Truth themselves. We can get caught up on their various translations, which one is right and which version is closest to what Mikao Usui intended, but to me, as long as it remains simple and true to his intention – whatever works for you.

Dancing by Swamp Light…

I wrote the bulk of this blog last Wednesday night (1st May 2019) after my Ecstatic Dance night with @movewithnikchung . I’ve published it in sort of a ‘journal format’ since that’s how I wrote it. This wasn’t easy to publish, and I nearly didn’t, but I felt the next step was to let my…

Caterflies & Butterpillars…

There’s a great mystery in the process, we know the scientific explanation but even knowing how it happens doesn’t preclude the mystery. This is probably why we resonate with this cycle on a spiritual level; there’s a common sense of ‘not knowing’ what happens to us between our death and our birth as well, and here it is happening right in front of us but we still can’t quite ‘see’ it.

Feel the Emptiness…

We had a partial Solar Eclipse in Capricorn today, perhaps you felt it. There was a feeling of gravity about it for me, a pulling towards the earth and at the same time being weightless.  There’s a crowd around the Sun and Moon today, Saturn sits on one side – very comfortable here in his favourite sign of Capricorn –…

Enough.

I wanted to talk about the concept of ‘enough’ as compared to the idea of ‘abundance’. This has been rattling around in my head since July when I had the rare opportunity to sit alone with my brother at a café after his Naturopath appointment. He had a cancer called Mesothelioma, brought about from working…

Go On…Tempt Me with your Soft Glow

Solar Eclipse 11th August 2018 I kiss you on the back of your head, I anoint your thoughts with my Light, Which pales in the shadow of your soft glow. You are my Light, you are my shadow, you are my Soul. I Love with all my shining Self, I adore with all my past,…

Wow! We Touched the Moon…

Lunar Eclipse 28th July 2018 In this blog I’m not going to explain what an Ascendant is or a Descendant etc, if you don’t know it’s not hard to find out, I prefer to get right to the point and let you research terms you might not be familiar with… I love a Lunar Eclipse,…

Hello Pluto, we’re waving…

Solar Eclipse 13th July 2018 A Solar Eclipse in Cancer today? Yes…at 12.47pm AEST, but you’ve been feeling it for a while now. Most notably over the last couple of weeks and it’s been culminating over the last few days. You’ll feel it after it’s gone too, but it will be like a satisfying breath…

Art and Symbols – A Way into the Subconscious Mind?

In both Reiki and Pellowah you will find symbols, we use them in different ways for each modality but they are there. In Reiki the symbols are used to activate a particular ‘energy’ to support healing, but they are also used on a higher level to create change and evolution of the Higher Self. In…

Reiki – What is it?

Reiki – What is it? Reiki; it flows through all of us, it flows through every-thing. It’s life force, it’s Universal energy, it’s always been and will always be. We just forgot how to ‘feel’ it, how to direct and use it. We are all natural healers: Have you ever found yourself laying your hand…
