Beginning your spiritual journey to channeling impactful readings and healings can seem intimidating.
Luckily, there are a vast range of powerful tools we can harness as readers and healers that create avenues for deep spiritual connection with clients, and unlock our innermost truth.
In my spiritual journey, I have discovered that different modalities work best for particular purposes when channeling for a client or seeking healing for myself. My first love is, of course, my tarot deck.Then came oracle cards, crystals, pendulums, then books (even books are a tool!).
So much goodness was found through these tools, and I don’t know about you, but once I started I found it difficult to curb my enthusiasm… too many card decks!
Knowing what spiritual tool is right for you depends on, but is not limited to, what you want to use it for. Let’s begin with the four pillars of our Self, what spiritual tools work best and why.
The Body is the container for the human experience. The body is fundamental to creating a strong basis for any spiritual evolution. We hold our memories in our physical selves, not just the mind, and anything that feels a little bit different will spook us. Spiritual tools that are tactile work best and anchor you to the physical realm.. Crystals are ideal to connect us to our physical selves as they are of the earth. They feel safe and their properties connect the unknown universal energy to our earthly experience. They are an extension of ourselves; our family.
The Emotional Self is feelings that cannot be expressed through words. Articulating a message that is “felt” rather than “spoken” tends to fall flat. I don’t know how many times I find myself saying the same thing four different ways to clients and still feeling like I haven’t given it justice. Emotions are strongest when giving or receiving a healing. So, bypass those words and get straight to the “feels” with sound. When healing; crystal bowls, singing bowls, tuning forks and music are excellent ways to send your message. When reading; the best tools incorporate as much colour, texture and storytelling as possible such as tarot and oracle cards, emotion charts and aura photography.
The Mental Self puts up the biggest fight and strongest pushback when it comes to spiritual tools. Once you have strengthened the physical and emotional selves, the mind is easier to work with. The mind will lie, tell you you’re wrong and sabotage your efforts to work with spiritual tools. To work with the mind Self, you must speak your truth without mental interference. I find Tarot cards best: they reflect honestly without prejudice. We can attempt to skew what the card is showing, but the reading will fall flat. When confronted with the truth, anxiety and doubt disappear. You can use the tarot for healing as well as readings - there are no limits. Alternatively, for healing, journalling is a great spiritual tool.
The Spiritual Self is the realms of the mystic. Here everything is possible and undeniable. It speaks directly to the Higher Heart, beyond the Soul and straight to the source. To access this realm, even for a brief moment, can bring profound shifts. A couple of spiritual tools I recommend are incense or oils (smell/taste) and toning (sound). Spiritual tools using these senses must be used alongside meditation and energy healing, for example, to embed the “mystic” experience.
Once embedded in the Soul experience, they become triggers that immediately transport you to this special state. Try adding a scent or sound to your next healing or reading session and experiment when you need it in your daily life. Seek out a trained therapist for best results.
Spiritual tools are amazing when you see them working in action. It is witnessing your intuition in real time and validation and confidence grows with each connection. Over the years, many people have confided in me that they have abandoned these tools for a variety of reasons. Their reasons are valid, however I noticed a couple of underlying themes:
Every one of these experiences are valid and true for the person involved,but it does not make it true for everyone. Some people resonate with their spiritual tools and some do not - it’s about finding the tools that are right for you. Here are some points to consider if you feel this way or are on the fence about using spiritual tools:
Spiritual tools are just that, tools.
It all comes down to intent. What are your intentions for you soul growth, your intentions for yourself and how you wish you use the spiritual tools. Are you looking to help or control. They will expose you to your truth. Are you ready?

I’ve had chronic arthritis since I was 19 years old. The arthritis was bad in my 20’s but the worst was yet to come, just as I began my spiritual journey.
Many painful truths had to be acknowledged. It sounds very dramatic and terrible…and it was. The lie I lived was exposed to find my Divine Spark. I’m not going to sugar coat it, the Spiritual Path was cruel, devastating, rewarding and peaceful. All the wonderful and terrible things at once and I would not change a thing.
I found myself anxious, depressed, challenged by external influences, challenged by my own physical body, challenged by my own mental processes, anything that pushed me out of my comfort zone. I transformed that energy into healing. No-one did it for me. I wanted them to. I was angry and I wanted the teachers and healers to take it all away like they said they could. I was living as the victim and had to transform to the warrior.
You are your own healer. You have the power. You have the power to make the changes. You have the power to decide you want something better than what you have. You have the power to decide what is best for you. You have the power to make mistakes and amazing discoveries.
It”s not about working it out all at once. Decide! Decide that life has to be better than this. Tap into the power of the Spirit through meditation, tarot, reiki for example. Use the feeling you have in those moments to focus on your “Big Picture” This is how I learned to trust my intuition, my guides and my Spiritual Path.
Be prepared to change course! Using your Big Picture focus you have a sense of what is possible. You will get stuck, you will be confused, you will be stubborn. Be flexible. I always sat in the FEELING of my Big Picture when I was confused. What it LOOKS like will change as you go with the flow. The FEELING is important, it is your ANCHOR.
And you know what? I began to heal… I healed my Soul and I healed my life. My body still carries the arthritis. I don’t like it but I understand it’s true purpose.
Teachers, healers and gurus are there for guidance and support. They work beside you to find your personal relationship with your Body, Mind and Spirit. You will encounter loving and not so loving people. Each and every one of them are support, cheerleaders, or motivation.
Self Awareness is the greatest gift you can give to yourself. Knowing yourself and being honest with yourself is the only way to break those old patterns and begin to live your best life.

Hitting the reset button helps rejuvenate the parts of you that you can feel is pushing for a change. A very confronting experience when it originates in the very depth of your soul with very little specific information, its just a feeling.
When it is your business you will be feeling the need to refresh your current path or even take it in a whole new direction.
What about your job? Feel like changing or giving up altogether?
Often relationships come under the microscope when we feel like those we consider close friends no longer align with our current way of thinking. You might feel an impulse to take your passion and turn it into an income, which is always exciting and a bit scary.
All of these examples come down to one thing…your Self has evolved, or levelled up, and is adjusting to a different way of experiencing the world. Often the need to change comes after a big life event when we are plunged into extraordinary circumstances. We rally while the energy is high and then comes the moment after where we wonder what is next and how do we reconcile the wisdom we have gained. How do we reconcile this shift?
So, how to you embrace that opportunity with the least amount of resistance.
In my life and with my clients I have observed the cycle of discomfort to renewal. I am sharing the processes here and I have related them to the seven chakras. Each step is critical to the cycle of renewal. How you experience it is personal so remember to be patient with yourself.
With each step I have included a meditation to help you...
#1 Feeling restless. I often get that fidgety feeling that something is not quite right, like I have forgotten something. This is the Crown Chakra downloading inspiration and it requires some stillness to listen, listen with the heart. Observing the world through this filter fires up the imagination and when tuned in you will begin to see inspiration everywhere. Now, where to place it….
CROWN CHAKRA ACTIVATION
#2 Feeling envious or admiration of another. Have you ever seen or learned of someone’s achievements and realised you could actually do that? It is not always an heroic feeling yet here we are being nudged to acknowledge our own talents. The Brow Chakra is revealing what is possible through your imagination, placing you front and centre. If you can visualise yourself in their place or dream of yourself doing the same thing you are more than capable of creating this for yourself. You’ve got this!
THIRD EYE CHAKRA ACTIVATION
#3 Meeting people of like mind, finding your tribe. Serendipity? Yes! Finding your tribe is such a blessing. People who speak your language and really get you. Through your Throat Chakra you are able to articulate your desires and build trust in yourself. Your tribe will reflect your ideas and you will gain strength from their support.
THROAT CHAKRA ACTIVATION
#4 How do you feel when you are living your passion? Compliments flow and there is a satisfied feeling from living your dream. Here the Heart Chakra is functioning at its optimum level. Feelings of absolute joy and vulnerability abound here, be fully immersed. The heart is the compass of the Soul. From this point on you may want to turn your passion into something bigger, something to share with a greater audience, maybe a business
HEART CHAKRA ACTIVATION
#5 Tools and real time opportunities just turn up! Wow! how I love it when ideas flow and I succeed, materials I require abound and the right support appears just when I need it in real time. I expand what I am doing and share it with others who find value in my efforts. This is the Solar Plexus working hard to actualise your dreams. Lean into it and let go.
SOLAR PLEXUS ACTIVATION
#6 Making a difference in someones life. Pure joy by just being yourself. Gaining a deep sense of satisfaction from your actions when someone you have helped moves on in their lives, stronger and richer from the shared experience. This creates a strong bond with your Divine Self where joy and gifts manifest tenfold to reward you for following your heart. This is the Sacral Chakra connecting you to the most intimate part of you, observing yourself through a connection with another. Without the work achieved from the above points the deep connection would never exist.
SACRAL CHAKRA ACTIVATION
#7 So here you are rejuvenated and renewed. Shedding the old and glowing within a journey well travelled. Here is the Base Chakra feeling safe and secure, a sense of purpose and control. Here you become the master of your reinvention until, like the Wheel Of Fortune, the next iteration begins its gentle call from within.
BASE CHAKRA ACTIVATION
If you are still unsure where you are or feel unclear where you are on this journey you can do each of the meditations in turn. The meditation that is difficult to complete will be a clue. Repetition is a great way to shift the energy of the chakra and I recommend you continue until you feel clear and calm before moving to the next Chakra.
Learning to be fearless about your future and compassionate towards your gentle heart.
Words are important and recognising phrases such as stuck in a rut, self sabotage, fear of change are clues you are in the resistant portion of this renewal.
You could cut and run, give up, do the same old thing expecting the same results, or… you could recognise the feeling of discomfort, work with it and lessen the anxiety it creates. When you accept this is your intuition letting you know change is in play life does become much easier, I promise.
I am the queen of reinvention. And I have been reflecting on my own life changes while writing this article. Over my lifetime I have shed many layers I have used to protect myself which, in turn, brought a deeper connection to my purpose. It is something that continues this whole life, and into the next.
Once upon a time I struggled. These days I prefer to lean into them as they emerge. I find it makes my life much simple. Also, I don’t like losing days to endless overthinking.
The evolved Soul can feel the shift and lean into it with grace. You can consciously create the direction of your reinvention. When you realise what you have control over it connects you to your Soul power and not only provides motivation, it gives hope for the future.

Kick start 2022 by jumping into the driver seat, and GO….
I always love the ending of one year and the beginning of another.
For me, personally, the renewal energy is very strong as my birthday is January 3rd (I am entering in to a Personal Year #1)
Here I share some tried and tested (with my clients and by me) strategies that will help you soar into your best year ever.
1. Get Clear
A simple method to focus and refine your future Self and goals. It is powerful and I use it when I feel my Soul shifting direction. It’s not the law of attraction, it’s more like the law of becoming.
My friends, here is the magic…The Divine Intelligence of the Universe or Spirit World is waiting and willing to assist you in all ways. It is now up to you to take advantage of the opportunities when they appear. **
2. The Future Life Walk Through
Use a guided visualisation meditation that connects you to your Higher Heart Self. Once here you can ask to be walked through the year where you will connect to your goals. Before you journey there are a few things to prepare. This exercise is part of Soul Recall Therapy. Here is a guided meditation to assist you to walk into your future. Included are detailed instructions to receive best results.
Listen to the meditation here ⬇️
3. Find a Coach or Mentor
I have always found the greatest relief when I am able to discuss my ideas or my blockages with someone who knows the ins and outs of my industry or has the counselling knowledge to guide me to my own answers.
This is beyond getting advice from friends, this is reaching for professional assistance. We do not live in a vacuum and finding an understanding heart relieves the crushing helplessness of isolation.
Find someone who aligns with your energy. You are wasting your time if you are not speaking the same language and while the shiniest may look great it may not be for you, be discerning.
Shop around for whomever shares your vision and will launch you there and beyond. You will know in your heart when you meet them.
It is then a small leap from here to connect with your tribe and the sense of community required to stay accountable.
And finally, if you are tired of constantly failing or if you have tried all the self help versions and don’t know where else to turn, investing in coach or mentor is priceless.

4. Have a decision to make?
Take a few deep breaths and place your head in your heart with your question. Your body will let you know yes or no by relaxing or tensing. Your body is your intuition, not your mind.
Follow this link for a 5 minute guided meditation to assist with this exercise and once mastered it is a simple and quick check-in.

5. Find an Accountability Friend
It is important to be honest with yourself about what is achievable. When you make the realisation of your dreams dependant on “having” this one thing, or will not happen until we “learn” everything, or are “fully” healed, we are purposefully putting up barriers.
How committed are you to achieving your goals?
Complete a stocktake of your resources and ask a friend to help, one that is not afraid to tell you the truth.
An accountability buddy is a fabulous asset and will definitely get you past that finish line.
Don’t forget to return the favour. All friends together!

6. Empty The Trash
Are you finding your ideas are so amazing, you feel it on a Soul level but still falter when it comes to stepping into those opportunities?
Our mind can be the most amazing cheerleader and the most devastating critic. This exercise, The Morning Pages, is from a book called “The Artists Way” by Julia Cameron.
This exercise works and is something I practice and wholly endorse. There is nothing else I have come across or could have created that comes close to this. I write every morning and it helps by over-riding any self doubt.
The short version: Write three pages of rambling thoughts every morning before you even contemplate beginning your day. Do not re-read your thoughts for at least 8 weeks, if at all. Keep them in a notebook or place them in an envelope. Do this every day without fail.The results are amazing! **
7. Letting Go
Recognising when plans are not working and letting them go is just as powerful as pushing through. Mind your energy reserves and make regular checkpoints to assess progress and commitment.
Is there a change of direction needed? Has this goal run its course? Sometimes the original “inspiration” was a launch point and the “failed” plan was the step towards the main event?
Understanding your attachment to any outcome can assist in determining whether your plan is ready to be abandoned or adjusted. Self awareness rules here.
I have a simple exercise to check using your chakras to check where your idea may be blocked. From this you can decide how you want to proceed or to heal the blockage.
When you are ready to give your idea an incredible boost and are ready to work with me to reach your full potential follow this link to BOOK A SESSION

I think this is a great way to start a conversation about anger. Anger is not an action, it is an emotion which is one of the body’s neurological responses to stress. When we feel anger it is essential to our survival. It responds to fear.
The physiological responses of bunched muscles, increased heart rate, rapid breathing, just to name a few put us in a state of high alert, ready for action, until we locate the cause of the anger/fear.
So what happens next. A while ago it was considered bad form to feel and express anger. We were told it was a sign of weakness, that we must transmute it into love or something more passive.
In recent times it is recognised how important it is to recognise and express all of our emotions, even anger. So why does anger feel so scary and why do we, at first, want to push it away?
Anger is usually associated with fear. If we face our anger, we must also confront a fear. If your anger is sustainable it will override any anxiety about what we are facing. Perhaps deep down we know the need to release the physical reactions will give us relief.
If your anger is short lived and you are left with the fear or anxiety. This is uncomfortable and you may want to push down the fear/anxiety, forget it ever existed, or talk yourself out of it. This could lead to your anger being with you for longer.
Unexpressed anger could manifest as physical and/or emotional symptoms. For myself, my personal health issues, stem from unexpressed anger.
I remember in my 20’s when I would have an anger release how much my chronic pain receded and how good I felt. It was a revelation… I used my anger to stop fooling myself that my life was going to improve and faced the truth of my situation. I used the momentum of my anger to facilitate change. Every time fear rose up, the anger overtook it. I was tired of making excuses for other peoples poor behaviour but mostly I was tired of making myself small to accommodate that poor behaviour. In a way, my anger made me large and imposing. My anger helped me feel invincible. I was tapped into my truth and nothing could hurt me in that moment.
I have seen this played out by the incredible Grace Tame, the current Australian of The Year. You can see her anger is being channelled in a very healthy way. You can see how articulate she is, she does not back down and continues to support herself in every sense.
This is what a healthy response to anger gives us. It gives us the power to maintain the courage of our convictions because it is YOUR TRUTH, and no longer will you fall into oppression.
Once you feel this amazing innate power you will never forget how strong you were and your energetic vibrations increases, you release another layer and move towards your true nature. You can draw on this memory to never feel that fear again. That is the true gift of anger. You connect to a greater part of you that nothing and nobody will ever violate again. You can build on this feeling because if you can do it once and survive the process then you must be able to apply it again when needed.
P.S. I do not wish to make light of anger expression when some of us have incredible difficulty verbalising our pain. Ancestral conditioning or even past life repression can be the source of this fear and this type of anger expression and/or release requires specific therapies.

Last week when we had a discussion around detachment online I found it really interesting the responses to the word I chose…Detach.
In a positive flow, to be detached, means you have reached a point in your life where you have matured in your relationships and do not become emotionally reactive when something you disagree with is raised. In a detached state you are aware of your emotional response to the disagreement and you are able to view it objectively, accept you are upset, and not let the reaction distract you from the discussion. In this type of scenario your perspective can be so clear and you are able to contribute effectively to any discussion.
There is nothing wrong with having an emotional response to something you disagree with, by the way, however if you need to keep your mind sharp in any negotiation then detachment is your best friend.
Detachment is also great when you are a reader or a healer or any practitioner where you are immersed in your clients lives and their emotions. Detachment allows you to view their situation objectively and the Soul messages are so clear there is no doubt when you bring them through.
In the negative flow, detachment feels like a disconnect from everything that feels good in life. You feel sad, alone and in the extreme depressed. This is because you are in denial of your true Self and are so exhausted from suppressing your uncomfortable feelings that your mind closes in on itself for self protection.
Once upon a time I lived a life full of the people I loved, people I respected and people who lived less fortunately than me. I felt all the emotions. I took on all the injustices of the world and would sympathise with anybody I thought was being hard done by. I was a classic rescuer.
When my own life became traumatic and out of control I had nothing for myself, I became physically, mentally and spiritually depleted. My saving grace was teaching myself detachment.
It felt weird because all the things I used to boost my energy such as gossip, showing off, and passive aggressive behaviour all disappeared. What was left felt like a void. I could not relate to my old life/friends and my new life/friends were all new and an unknown quantity. It is a very lonely place.
It is in that lonely and quiet place that the only and most important relationship developed. The relationship to myself. I understand now that detachment is really me fully supporting myself. I am my own best friend and I do not need to draw on anybody else’s energy to support a point of view I might not fully believe in.
I found the Buddhist teachings on detachment very helpful at the time. It was like I needed that permission to give up my feelings of being fully immersed in my own and everyone else’s drama. To be away from the pain felt like I wasn’t showing I cared. By practicing detachment I was able to connect to my loved ones on a much deeper level. I saw for myself the deepening of our connections to one another. I did not understand, until I got there, that that level of connection was possible. It helped me open myself deeply to the world of Spirit because i was not running from myself.
Connection to Spirit requires full self honesty, that is really hard, hard, but worth it. I can’t describe in words how comforting, amazing, safe I felt with those who truly loved me and I can honestly say for the first time ever, not only did I learn to love who I am but I liked myself. We show love to ourselves unconditionally when we feed and clothe ourselves, that is deeply ingrained. To actually like yourself, consciously requires next level courage.
Best feeling in the world and now I am my own best friend, forever!!

I gave a walk through of my recent breakthrough in another blog
CLICK HERE TO READ
where there had been consistent clear messaging.
This time the message did not come directly for me, it came as a message for others and I found it relevant to my current Spiritual shift and critical to my surrender to this shift.
Here is a summary of what I understood because it is something I found fascinating and relatable.
I am also including some self healing tips at the end of this article.
Cobalt Blue is where we start.
This colour represents the 5th layer of the aura. The 5th layer is called The Etheric Template Body. The Etheric Template Body, when visualised, looks like a photo negative. It is a complete reversal of The Etheric Body, 1st layer of the aura, and is described as negative space. In other words it is the energy around the Etheric Template Body that creates its shape. Here we hold the library of our potential.
For example, if you were born without a limb that limb would still be represented in The Etheric Template Body. This in no way means you should have been born with that limb, nor can it be regenerated. It is simply a blueprint of the potential of The Etheric Body.
It is here you can access your Soul Purpose as destiny, your soul contracts are stored here to be experienced at the appropriate time and it is also a two way door as it collects the human experience once it has been completed.
**JUST LIKE A PHOTO NEGATIVE**
IT CAN BE A COMPLEX AREA SO LET'S BREAK IT DOWN...
The Etheric Template Body as it is is cobalt blue in colour. It shows as negative space and can be tuned into any time. It is accessed during healing or meditation and can be tuned into anytime by sitting quietly and going within.
Because it is essentially a library of our soul purpose this lifetime it is also the place we connect to when we are ready for change or change is upon us. We connect to this aura to download our next experience. Some call this manifestation, I call it BECOMING. We become our own potential.
I also believe that we have a pre-destined timeline which is also accessible in this aura.
The information is not drawn down immediately, it is not that simple. We are having our human experience to clear old karma and bring in new karma. The intent is remembered, or recognised, as the next step of the journey. The information stored in the blueprint, which if you remember is our full potential, is initially downloaded to the Astral Body (we will learn about the Astral in another article). It is then distributed to The Mental Body to articulate it or give it a name, The Emotional Body to expose emotions attached to this new experience and finally the Etheric Body to create the plan. We then drop this experience into the physical body to create real life experiences.
This course of action will play itself out until the original blueprint (design of the etheric template body) is realised in the human experience. The human experience, as we all know, is often difficult, and the physical experience provides the discomfort required to launch us into our destiny. Expect to feel mental disruption, limited imagination, feeling disconnected, lack of purpose and inhibitions. This can include apathy, anxiety, anger, frustration and confusion. These feelings, or distortions, help create the catalyst required for lasting change.
It is this ultimate connection with our higher purpose experienced through deep feelings of “knowing” that drive us towards completion and refuse to let life knock us down.
This knowing, or higher purpose, is the Soul Purpose. It is not just one thing but a series of experiences that contribute to our Soul or Karmic contract we agreed to before birth.
The Etheric Template Body is connected to our Throat Chakra, the chakra of Will, which in turn dictates how we respond to the opportunity presented. If we feel fear we resist and our way becomes difficult. When we have faith we surrender and the way is smoother. How we choose to travel to this destination is our choice, or our will.
No matter whether you exhibit fear and resistance or surrender and flow you will always arrive at the perfect, pre-destined time.
The throat chakra is power, our power, and we have the power to choose our reactions. By tuning into all the Auric Bodies you can be involved every step of the way. You may have experiences that are out of your control but your journey is defined by how you choose to react to those challenges.
When working effectively with The Etheric Template Body you grow confidence in your ability to move forward. You have the opportunity to express your true nature and create your own unique path. It’s not that you know everything, you are simply connected to a deeper feeling, the language of the soul. This allows you to feel safe enough to surrender to Divine Will.
P.S. Conversely, the physical experience, once completed is then uploaded and stored in The Etheric Template Body (or library) for future, or future lives, reference.

In order to surrender to the new information coming through one must first become vulnerable. That means feeling anxious, disconnected and sometimes physically unwell.
I had a blast of all three this past month, this means a major shift. How do I know this? Over the years I have made it my mission to deeply connect to my Self through self awareness practices and connection to Spirit. I might sometimes go on a bit about it (I think I do, lol) but it is these strategies that work. This always forms the basis of my spiritual practice, the knowledge I share and the work I do.
Number One, the most important of my and any spiritual practice is meditation.
I have been asking the question for a couple of months now, how to connect to this shift I have felt coming. The answer has always been the same, and while I acknowledged it in the moment, it has taken a little time to integrate. The answer was to return to the old ways, the ways that brought me to this point. The regular meditation, the connection to my tribe, to step forward will change everything. Every meditation was gentle, non-judgemental of my life and never wavered from the message. Meditation did not soothe my day to day life, it gave my struggle context, allowed me time to surrender and confidence I was on my right path.
Number Two, the signs.
First were the subtle nudges such as numbers and synchronicities, then emotional surges with no context, then the direct messages from my guidance. Signs bump me out of my current thinking, distract me and make me stand still for a moment. I check in with my feelings, that all is ok. I do not try to analyse my signs. I always see them as a checkpoint. To analyse is to be distracted. I am satisfied I have been contacted and I am open for the direct messaging.
Number Three, managing the emotional, mental, physical fallout.
This is always a personal aspect. I have a chronic condition that has left me physically disabled and continues to direct all of my life and life decisions. I would not be here without it so I take it all into account. As I mentioned earlier, I do tend to overanalyse but my physical and emotional selves will remind me to stay on track. These aspects of my Self connect me to my tribe. Where would any of us be without our people. When I hit this aspect I realise how isolated I have become and I reach out to my peeps. Do you have your peeps yet? The no judgement, tell you the truth, love you to pieces people? Gather them, they are gold.
At the end, and I feel like I have finally fully surrendered, I am integrating the messages and strategies my higher self gave me during meditation, I am following my intuitive path because my guidance is so clear. My guidance is so clear because I gave myself the time and space needed to listen to my heart. I refuse to be angry with myself, I support all my decisions, I know where I am going now.
P.S. I don’t know exactly where I am going, I know how I feel about where I am going and that feels amazing. I will always chase the amazing feeling because it connects me to my purpose.

Introduction To The Modern Oracle
Past Life Regression Therapy
I talk many times about Self Awareness and how critical it is for a robust Spiritual Life. I believe Self Awareness is the most important aspect of the human condition. It teaches us surrender, compassion, gratitude and provides the full cup required to be able to reach out and support others by filling their cup.
I have always striven to keep myself in check and healthy. Self Awareness is not something that can be taught as such, it is something that I endeavoured to maintain in my earlier years of trauma and illness. Back in those days I was not even aware that it was called anything. To me it meant the difference between living and existing.
The other day I found a quote that took me beyond my understanding of Self Awareness and it gave me a feeling of completion. The quote is as follows:
“Awareness isn’t the most powerful thing about your spiritual practice. It’s the moment after that you sink or swim. After noticing do you praise yourself or get mad? Guess which brings about real change?” Author: @Mystical.Digita1
This shook me a little. I always assumed Self Awareness was the final answer and from that you made your conscious decisions. I have many personal challenges and emotional blocks that I am fully aware of. I make my decisions, even unhealthy ones, from this point of awareness, understanding that I will, eventually work out the old patterns, feel in control and move on. This pattern has been my mainstay. It took this quote to help me realise that there is one extra simple step before surrender and healing...the action and reaction after awareness of Self.
The message in the reaction is both simple and profound. How does one discharge the pattern immediately?
Praise = self support, Get Mad = self sabotage
It is here, in this moment, that change will occur. This is the conscious moment, the decision to support myself or self sabotage. It is this small awareness that cuts through the days, months and years of healing required to arrive at the same moment.
Fear will always bog you down with reasons and excuses as to why this happened, past trauma, past treatment, abuse, neglect. Thinking, overthinking, pulling apart, naval gazing will keep you in this spiral.... Stay present....choose....keep it simple....
So, what will you choose when it comes to your turn....Support 👍 or Self Sabotage 👎
