The Nature of Self-Belief

The Oxford English dictionary defines “belief or believing” as: “Acceptance/accepting that (something) is true, especially without proof. ” It’s this last bit that we find the most fascinating because it explicitly says that *proof* on which so much of our society and lives is structured ISN’T part of the deal. All that is actually required is a sense of TRUST that something is true. So many people refuse to believe in anything or anyone without proof, perhaps at times that is prudent, but it also keeps what is legitimately allowed in the realms of what is considered real/true limited because lets face it, as human beings our understanding is limited; we don’t even fully comprehend how our own brains or our own consciousness works! What we’re really getting at is that perhaps proof is over-rated and maybe TRUST is what we might do better to focus on. In our own experience, trust comes from a deep sense of being connected to our inner world and essence, because this cultivates a deep knowingness which, although intangible …

Understanding is Power

Sometimes, the world revealed to us through the filter of main stream media can appear to be filled with nothing but tragedy, pain and heartache. Under persistent bombardment of these vibrations it can be easy to ask yourself “what’s the point?….what’s the point of even trying to change things when all the odds seem so hugely stacked against us?“. If you’ve felt or are feeling this way then you’re not alone and moments of despair and hopelessness are very much a part of the human condition, BUT if you find yourself feeling this way, it’s worth considering this: what is reported on main stream media is not a true reflection of all that is happening in our world.  Knowledge is power and understanding how dramatic (particularly negative) events wield the power to ensnare our brains is something that we personally feel we should all be aware of. There’s a reason that tragedy and negative news sells papers, because to a large extent evolution has wired our brains to pay more attention to dramatic, often negative news than the alternative …

When you heal, we all feel it!

Are you finding that your usual ‘go to’ list of self care/self soothing things just isn’t cutting it? Perhaps you’re experiencing health issues (either new or old) bubbling up or childhood wounds and issues from the past are being triggered? If you’ve been experiencing some pretty dense heavy energy of late or any/all of the above, then please know that you aren’t alone! There are a couple of things that we have been feeling into that have been working in tandem creating a sort of *double whammy* energy effect on many of us. Firstly, the dense energy that many of us are feeling is the fear, uncertainty, hatred and negativity which has been dislodged from the riverbed of the collective consciousness and is now floating on the surface in full glaring view. This dredge (that was conveniently settled on the bottom of the riverbed out of view for many years before) has risen to the surface in every area of human life and, as a result, can no longer be ignored which, despite being a good thing in our view …

Creator Beings

  Definition – “Human being: A man, woman, or child of the species Homo sapiens, distinguished from other animals by superior mental development, power of articulate speech, and upright stance.” We’ve always found this definition so very narrow, we believe that we are SO much more than this. We (all of us), as beings, are vast beyond measure; intimately connected through our consciousness (which we feel resides in the heart space) to the all that is. We are in fact Creator beings. In his book “Permanent Peace” Robert M. Oates discusses the Vedic (the Vedas, the oldest scriptures of Hinduism) understanding of consciousness which really resonates with us as a fundamental truth which science is just starting to understand: “There exists one basic field of existence — not many different fields of nature but one unified field that is infinite, timeless, and transcendental — a field which underlies and supports all other fields, all the mechanics of nature’s functioning. As the same ocean gives rise to all waves, so the same unbounded, omnipresent field is said to give rise to all the laws of …
