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 …

Unmasking Darkness & Fear

I’m now a fair way into my reiki mastership and boy is it an extraordinary journey, for which I am SO grateful. There’s so much I want to write about, but I’m noticing some strong themes, each of which deserve an individual post so I’m going to focus on one thing at a time. When people ask me what walking the mastership path is about/like, the best way I can explain it is that it’s a journey of illumination. As my reiki master so succinctly put it today: “one’s being is so flooded with huge amounts of universal source energy/light that there is no part of oneself that can remain hidden in the darkness.” For me, mastership has illuminated those places deep within my soul that I previously dare not look or venture, for fear of what might be lurking there. We all have darkness within us and what I’ve learnt is that often that’s where all the best magic lies and by finding that magic you can see those aspects of yourself with a different filter. Within this process …

The comfort zone: stepping out!

A few months ago I got that special *tap tap* on the shoulder from the universe that, for me, signifies that a message is imminent and  I need to pay attention. Sure enough, the message came through loud and clear one night, that I should consider embarking upon my year long Reiki mastership journey ASAP, having completed my Level 3a in late 2014.

Why every pregnant woman deserves a Blessing way Ceremony

Up until very recently I didn’t really know what a Blessing way Ceremony was nor what one entailed. I’d seen photos of women with beautiful henna covered bellies wearing crowns of flowers, but I hadn’t understood the significance of what it all symbolised. I’ve only been to a few baby showers in my life and they were all lovely, but I observed that it was more focused on the baby and preparing the mother practically. There didn’t seem to be much time for the pregnant woman to reflect on how she was feeling and it certainly wasn’t the deeper spiritual ritual that I instinctively knew that I wanted. I chose not to have a baby shower when I was pregnant with my first but, during this (my second pregnancy), after looking in to Blessing ways further, I felt like I had finally found a way of celebrating this life event in a way that was meaningful to me.
