Shift in Consciousness

How do you unify different views of the world? When you recognise that a shift in consciousness is happening on the planet, how do you interact with those who have no clue what is happening? Do you try to share your knowledge with them? Should you give them information and try to convince them you’re right? Save your breath! You can’t convince people of anything they choose not to believe. Nor can you help anyone unless they ask for help!

The key is to be authentic with everyone you meet and simply share love with them. Listening and empathy are the greatest leadership skills! Be the most amazing bearer of light and be willing to share your wisdom when you have a spiritual prompt to do so. But never in a forceful or judgmental way. Be an example of how awakened, loving human beings conduct themselves. Pause your mind and go within for the wisdom that will help them move beyond the collective fear into a space of understanding and joy. Be Mindful… Pause… Connect!

Challenge of Change

Heaps of things are in the process of change. Although it isn’t seen on corporate media, there are massive shifts happening in the world today. As important as these changes are, nothing is more important than what is happening within us. The shifts in energy that we are feeling, as we are moving into the light, is creating changes in all of us! We know that changes require challenges and struggle, so it’s important to view everything as happening for our highest good. The important thing is to remain hopeful and joyful when recognising the birth pangs of bringing forth a new world.
When we are mindful and grateful in the midst of seeming chaos, we provide incredible strength and inspiration to others. We feel our energy and vibration rising, as we strive to bring more light into the world by sharing our heart with others. This is a time for celebration and a sense of liberation from the darkness our world has experienced. Being immersed in the energy of love is the most effective way that we can assist in bringing forth the new world. Let’s continue throwing off the last vestiges of the fear based control structure we are all familiar with. As we face these ongoing challenges, the gratitude we express for being here at this time, will help make the shift one of smoothness, grace and joy. Be Mindful… Pause… Connect!

Mirror Work

How do you express love for yourself? Can you look into the mirror and truly express complete love for all aspects of yourself? Do you see your true spiritual nature when you look into your own eyes? Or are you too focused on your perceived physical imperfections to appreciate your own beautiful essence?
Do you treat your body with respect and keep it in good order with quality food, drink and activity or do you abuse it by over-eating, overworking it or by excessive exercise? Do you take the time to honour yourself and express gratitude for all your wonderful qualities and gifts? Perhaps you are too focused on the aspects you feel need to be fixed or changed? It is time to be kind to yourself, to express love for all aspects of yourself in as many ways as you can. Why not make today a day where you focus on loving yourself? Be Mindful… Pause… Connect!
PS: I highly recommend the book… Mirror Work by Louise Hay.

Is Your Hand Up?

Are you aware of the synchronicities that have taken place in your life? Looking back, do you see the seemingly random coincidences that have made a difference on your journey? Meeting the right people, being in the right place at the right time or chance occurrences that may have seemed insignificant at the time? The more you are aware of these happenings, the more you can be grateful for them in the present moment. Awareness builds trust in Source Energy and the direction that the universe is nudging your life.
The next step is to consciously put your hand up to the universe. Set your intention to be available… to be a channel and create these types of events in the lives of others. Even the briefest of meetings can have a major impact on the other person if you follow your ‘spiritual prompts’. The right words plant seeds that can grow and lead to incredible changes. Random acts of kindness, or even just a smile can have a much greater impact than you can ever imagine. When you see yourself as an instrument for the universe, every interaction you have can potentially be life-changing for anyone who is ready to experience your love and your wisdom! Be Mindful… Pause… Connect!

What Are Your Plans?

As we approach the end of 2022, what are your plans? Will it be an excellent time to connect with family and friends? If so, how will your energy and attitude be affected by them? Does it tend to drag you back into old patterns of thought and behaviour? Or will this be a great opportunity to discover just how much you have grown during the past year?

Why not set aside some time alone these holidays? It’s an excellent opportunity to go within, reflect on your past, connect with the present and envision the future. It’s a great opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the past year and visualise on what you want to contribute to the world in the coming year. It is also a wonderful opportunity to focus on what is most important in life, especially the little things. Wishing you Love, Joy and Peace this Christmas! Remember what Jesus said, “Love your neighbour as yourself!” and what I always say… Be Mindful… Pause… Connect!

You Are Worthy

How do you express love for yourself? Are you able to lovingly look at yourself in the mirror without any judgment? Do you welcome all the thoughts and emotions that show up, no matter how dark or negative? Are you able to accept everything that happens to you as being for your ultimate good? Are you able to love and compliment someone even if they are trying to tear you down?

Let’s trust ourselves enough to participate in the world and accept all the challenges it presents, without shrinking back into our comfortable spiritual cocoons. Let’s share our love, no matter what is happening. It’s the greatest gift we can give, not only to ourselves, but to everyone else and the world! Love is the only thing the world needs, and it starts with loving ourselves deeply. Always remember… you are worthy of self-love. Be Mindful… Pause… Connect!

Self Connection

How much time do you set aside daily for yourself and your personal connection? Do you walk in nature, pray, meditate, read or do you have another form of self-connect? Do you spend quiet time and go deep inside to access the brilliance that resides within? Are you able to shut off the mind chatter, especially the inner critic, long enough to experience your inner light?

It is so easy in today’s world to feel like we must be constantly connected… to the world, to our friends and to our phone! It is only when we take time to disconnect from these things that we are enabling our connection with source energy and the wisdom of creation. We can and should develop this connection so that it is unshakable and is a constant in our lives, no matter what activities we are engaged with. In this way we nourish our higher self, learn to love our inner beauty, and enable ourselves to share heaps more love! Be Mindful… Pause… Connect!

Power of Love

Let’s not underestimate the power we have to make a difference in this crazy world or in someone’s life on a moment to moment basis. What does a smile cost? A warm greeting or kind hearted gesture. A sincere complement or thoughtful word. A sympathetic ear or gentle touch. These are all natural expressions and extensions of the love that is our true nature and essence. We are All One, One with Spirit, One with Life! The more we express and extend our loving nature and essence, the more we get to experience it. By doing so, we are actively transforming the world we live in. Let’s not undervalue the ability that we have, to transform this crazy world a moment at a time, and work towards a more gentle and empathic way of living. Within the present moment, thanks to our spiritual connection, we can shift someone’s perception of themselves, and thus turn their day or life around! Our Source Energy creates through Love, and that is what we are here to do… to help create a more loving world. We create this more loving world through the interactions we have with each other.
