Power Of Influence

 


Every now and again I describe the current events in the skies and the way they can influence our thoughts, feelings and the way we are living.

When I notice particular patterns repeating themselves one client after another I look to astrology to see if we are being influenced by the bigger patterns of Life because it can also subconsciously affect the reasons clients come in for appointments and the wonderfilled and profound results they are creating.

Astrology is pure mathematics in action and it has it’s own language. In a nutshell, New Moons assist us to start new projects and planting the seeds of new ideas. Eclipses assist us to make deep, profound change. Full moons are about fruition, fulfilment of goals and visions.

The more I research what is happening with the planets the more I am prompted to share the information so You can make the most of this amazing opportunity to heal.

The sense at sunrise the day before the new moon created this FB post some of you may have seen on Friday:

“What Is Your Vision for Your Life? The gentle energy of the pre-sunrise moon this morning was alluring, inclusive, loving and warm like a pride of lions playing with their cubs. The eclipse and Leo new moon tomorrow offers the gift of this love and nurturing attention to create the life you are meant to be living. It’s a time of major change. Release old, old patterns that are resurfacing for a well overdue exit to make room to create the best day of your life each day moving forward. EnJOY! xxx”

Those old,old patterns resurfacing held an underlying energy of a painful pattern I had seen in various forms in Personal Consultations during the week. I heard a lot of ” I feel so angry. Why didn’t I listen ( to myself)? All this time? I feel so stupid for not doing something earlier.” 

The analogy I sensed was the anger  triggered within, the Leo New Moon roaring with pain of the thorn in it’s paw, the old poison from the past causing the pain and regret. (You) The Lion finally embraced the mouse (within you) for finding the source of pain and removing the thorn.

Another opportunity to heal. Did you take it?

Eclipses create major long overdue change to improve our lives by getting us on track. We’ve just completed the last of a cycle of 3 in “Eclipse Season”, the most widely known at the time of the Full moon 2 weeks ago.

Thes eclipses offered us the energy and opportunity to heal ourselves from within.The old, old painful patterns that have held us back for far too long have been surfacing and clients have been releasing them easily in their Personal Consultations leaving much lighter and with greater clarity, energy and direction than when they arrived.

Add to this moon and eclipse activity, 5 planets retrograde ( appearing to go backward) clients have reported to be feeling stuck, “unchanging” or lost momentum. I am happy to report all were clear, focussed and moving toward who and where they want to Be by the end of their session.

So if you were ever looking for proof that Life conspires to support you, you can add this to the evidence pile!

The influence of the skies consistently reminds me we are all connected.

And it all connects us to whatever we believe Divine, our spirit and path/ purpose.

Unless we believe we are disconnected.

Because What You Focus On Grows.

What a briiliant time to have a session!

Right insync. Buy not the band;)

Be kind. And True to You.

Welcome To The Winter Solstice!

 


Welcome to the Winter Solstice

This is one of my favourite times of year.

The change in energy is palpable. Listening to the birds at sunrise this morning, the shortest day of the year, excitedly chirping to each other gave me goosebumps. Even they know change is on it’s way.

The Winter Solstice assists you to create profound change in your life with greater clarity and more easily.

It’s the key reason I offer, and so many have taken the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of, Winter Solstice Personal Consultations. Over the years I have learnt that when you tell me you feel like your life is ‘falling apart”, “No part of my life is the same” , ” My life is in ruins “, “Something weird is happening” that Winter Solstice energy is clearing out the past dramatically and in a way you will finally take notice. That you are on the wrong path and NOW is the time to get on track to the Life Meant for You. It is an exciting and rewarding time of year. Filled with potentials, once the the past is let go, generating the energy to renew and create a lIfe that is better. A Life Meant for You.

A BIG Thank You Thank You Thank You! to the wonder-filled Mediation group at the fully booked Winter Solstice Special Event Meditation last night. It was a gift to be a part of your transformation as you each released the past and visioned and started creating  the next 12 months. Such an inspiration. Thank YOU! now enJOY the benefits!

The final event making the most of receiving the benefits of the Winter Solstice energy is A Spirited Life this Sunday has created a lot of interest with only 3 places available. This is the workshop for you if you feel what others feel; feel overwhelmed or drained by others, the environment, the weather; find you give more than you receive in some relationships; and/or feel blind-sided by other people’s energy and needs. You will learn to make the most of your sensitivity, stabilise your energy, care for you, trust yourself and intuition; and find the strength, energy and ability to function in the everyday world. A theory and practice based workshop including meditation, feeling and/or seeing energy fields and practical skills to use after the workshop. Scroll for more details. Respond to this email or sms to book.

It is on the back of the Winter Solstice energy that I visit clients in Adelaide for the first time offering Personal Consultations and a Meditation Special Event in the last days of June. A few places are available (details below) so contact me ASAP to secure your appointment or SHARE the news with your friends/ family in Adelaide so they too can benefit.

In the meantime make sure You complete Your Winter Solstice exercise (below) preferably tonight or sometime in the next 3 days to create the Life Meant for You more easily.

Be kind. And True to You.
All the best always,
Deb

The Winter Solstice

Today is officially the shortest day of the year and last night the longest.

After the Solstice tonight at 8.07pm Sydney time the sunrise tomorrow will be the first day of light as the days grows longer and nights shorter. It is my most anticipated morning of the year. I sit in nature, all rugged up, breathe and notice the energy shift and change as the new cycle begins.

It is a powerful time to get clear. It’s a time to set, then let go of your visions, dreams and goals. It’s time to celebrate life, love and connection with gratitude, to enjoy the rebirth as the old cycle completes itself and the new cycle begins.
 
The Winter Solstice carries a HUGE energy to help your foresight – that’s the vision and the strategies needed – for the year ahead… helping you move from where you are to where you want to be.
 
It’s time to re-write your life story. Often we identify, explain or excuse ourselves on the basis of the painful experiences in the past. The Winter Solstice is a perfect time to let go of the pain of the past, the unfinished business, to move toward the life you are meant to be living.

Winter Solstice Exercise

As a goal getting exercise this process is helping your brain to focus on where you are, where you want to be and what you want to be doing so your inner GPS can take you there. Goals are 80% more successful if they are written down.
 
As an energetic exercise it is harnessing the energies of the Winter Solstice to assist you to get there more easily.

Start by clearing out the old year.

List all the horrible things that have happened to you in the last 12 months.
Then note what each of these experiences taught you, how they changed you, what habits, routines, ways of thinking or feeling you changed in your life because of the learnings from each horrible experience.

Add to this list the fears, negative thoughts and beliefs that are getting in the way of you achieving your goals and living the Life meant for You
When you have finished – destroy the list! Rip it up, burn it – get rid of it!

Now Head Hold and Breathe and imagine you are vacuuming all the stress from the last 12 months from each part of your body from your head to your toes. When finished put the vacuum cleaner into a rocket ship and send it to the sun to be destroyed. 

Give yourself a hug and fill your body with pink and gold light ( unconditional and Divine Love and healing energy and protection).

Creating Your Future

How can you transfer these learnings, new habits and ways of thinking and doing life into the year ahead?

Where do you want to be in every part of your life in 12 months time: health, financially, relationships, spiritually, work-wise?

Head hold and breathe and imagine yourself 12 months in the future talking to your older, wiser self … who has already created The Life meant for you, is living it and enJOYing it!

Ask your older, wiser self about each of these  areas of your life and how you are living 12 months in the future. Ask what you did to create it, what thoughts, feelings, habits did you let go of? What new thoughts, feelings and habits did you adopt? Then Thank your older, wiser self for all the help, love and support. Promise (if you mean it) to visit with your older, wiser self regularly. Become  BFFs. What a great resource!

Bring all the information back into Present time, right here, right now and write it all down. 

Then put a candle on top of your list for the next 3 nights (and being responsible candle-safe users I know you’ll blow it out as you go to bed or leave the house).
 
The idea is this: you are telling Your Brain and the Divine/ Universe/ God/ Goddess/ Supreme Being (within you) who you want to be this time next year and what you want to be doing. Make it date specific, eg. “It is June 20, 2019 and I am/ Have…” then describe the exact scene you are in (so you know you’ve accomplished your goal) and how it feels to be there (having accomplished your goal).
 
You are re-setting your brain’s Inner GPS to the life you are meant to be living, and making it quite clear for the Divine energy to pick it up and run with it!
  
Make way for the new, better ways of doing life and Live the Life Meant for You!
 
EnJOY Your Winter Solstice. The next 12 months will transform you.
 
Be True to You,
Al the best always,
Deb

Look For The Light

Look for the Light
Why?

When we are at our darkest, our lowest, loneliest, feeling anxious, grief, in a cycle of self-whipping thoughts, worrying about the future, ourselves, what others are thinking about us ( which they are probably not -because they are caught up in their own stuff- and if they are it is none of our business- they are their thoughts). When we feel depressed, or lack or fear we can go deeper and deeper into a well of darkness.

We forget when we are at the bottom of the well, swimming around with others who are at the bottom of the well- some because it is their role to clean up the bottom of the well for those living in the well, some who are there because they followed the darkness.

It is there we forget there is another way, we begin to believe there is only darkness, we forget to look for the Light. A speck. A sparkle of Light. 

When we start to focus on the Light we start to follow it, we start to rise up through the darkness. The speck of Light becomes a ray of light through the dark waters of the well. The well dwellers become more colourful to catch the rays of Light and their mates.

When we rise to the top of the well we can  B R E A T H E, we can see further, expand our thoughts and begin to imagine and vision possibilities. 

The Light we follow when we look for it touches the Light within us reminding us who we are in our heart, filled with Love and Purpose. When we are disconnected from our Purpose we can feel depressed, anxious and fearful waiting for something big to destroy our tightly controlled world of ‘have to’ and ‘shoulds’ protecting us from the fear.

The something big that we numb with food, wine, box sets, coffee, sugar…anything rather than create the space to feel and hear it is our spiritual purpose. The reason we were born.

When we look for the Light in moments of silence, of lightness and laughter, of touching moments that allow the heart to open a little at a time or in the sudden swooosh of the doors flying open it connects us to the bigger reason for creating the Life you are creating.

The Life that fills you up ( fulfills you), that brings Joy and a sense of Knowing, of heart centred desire to make a difference to your world.

So look for the Light. Then Your Light. Then the Light in Others.

It is found in your curiousity, your Love and shows you what is truly important to You.

Be Present. EnJOY your time there. It helps heals you. And the world.

It is the Life Meant for You.

 

The Energetic Side of Life… What’s In It For You?
 

I have been sensitive to the energies of others and cycles of life since a child. Seeing, hearing and speaking with Spirits, feeling other’s emotions, thoughts, energy fields and past lives.

Most importantly to me, I could see the Light within others. This came in very handy in my Corporate days when I was recruiting people for jobs- I was successful because I matched their energy and Light to the company that would then hire them. Everyone would be happy. Explaining my success to the boss was a little more difficult!

The Light within each of You is also what I see in clinic, classes and workshops. It is a part of your Spiritual Self. When unhappy or in fear we dim and cover this Light.

When we are safe to Be our True Self we SHINE. So part of my curiosity and purpose in Life became seeking ways to help others release their pain and fear so they could live the Life they are meant to. A Life that is meaningful to them.

And here I am doing that every day- living the Life that is meaningful to me- and loving it!

One of my deep desires and motivators is for You to BE living the life You love, the life that is meant for You. Doing what You love with commitment and Purpose. That is what a passionate life is- BEing inspired…listening to Your Inner Voice and acting on it. So as well as Personal Consultations over the years I have developed events,  classes and workshops to offer you opportunities and ways for you to create this life. For You.

Let Go Of Procrastinating

 

Let Go of ProcrastinationOver the last few weeks I’ve been hearing a lot from clients about procrastination in the last few weeks as if it’s a bad thing.
 
Whether you are having trouble starting or your work has ground to a halt, what you are calling Procrastination can actually be working to support you.
 
Most often we think Procrastination is a struggle with our willpower and begin to whip ourselves for feeling weak willed or not being stronger mentally.
Motivation for Change
In kinesiology/ neuro-training terms it can be low Motivation for Change…one of the measurements I take at the beginning of your Personal Consultation when it is often low 0 – 5% and increases to 81-97% at the end of your session after we have released the negative mental/ emotional/ energetic patterns blocking it’s ability to flow easily.
 
Does this sound familiar? You know logically what you need to do, may have plenty of energy to do the mental work, no energy to action it? You make excuses when you’ve promised yourself “ I’ll start Monday”? and then Tuesday, Wednesday with no start in sight?
 
Motivation for Change is the energy and ability to do things differently. If the old ways no longer work we need Motivation for Change to make the changes necessary to make progress.

Resistance to Change

When you lack clarity around what is negative change and what is positive change your progress slows and you stall.

Your misperception and fears can cloud your belief that whatever you are working on will create such great Change that you fear your ability to handle it. You focus on what you may lose as a result of Change and how others will perceive you as a result.
 
It is important to remember that Positive Change is positive and in support of you and your goals. When you ask yourself these 2 questions you become very clear about the change you are creating and get rid of the rest:
Is this positive and in support of me?
Is this positive and in support of your goals.
A solid and clear Yes to both questions is Positive Change. Anything else you let go and move on.
If you have difficulty with this, it’s time for your next session to create the Positive Change you seek.

 

Where Am I Going?
 

The brain likes to know where you are heading . It likes a Vision, a BIG picture. AND it likes to be emotionally committed to it. Then it can create a strategy to get there.
That’s Foresight. Vision + Strategy.
 
It’s also where most people grind to  halt. They create a sensible goal without an emotional attachment and wonder why they stall.
 
The brain LOVES You creating a strong emotional commitment to your Vision.
 
You know how this works already…you’ve become so emotionally committed to fear at times that you have driven yourself into a field of mud and get stuck. Or worse, find yourself down a big dark hole, and become blinded and stuck. That was through your emotional commitment to worry and fear. So turn it around….
 
Remember the first time you did something you LOVED? The first car you loooonged for? Your first trip OS? You imagined and imagined and imagined what it would feel like living it, how amazing you would feel…how it would complete you, make you worldly/ sophisticated/ fulfilled/ completed/ wanted. YOU KNEW that car, that trip was the answer. The moment you committed to the path of owning the car, being on your trip… your brain registered the intensity of emotion and created the brain reward pathways you needed to create the strategy to make it happen.
 
And it was so strong you started to attract people who had cars like that, had been to the places you wanted to travel to…all adding information, advice, sometimes help to make the Vision you committed to happen.
 
You’ve done it before, do it again…
Imagine how it will feel when you are living and breathing your project and life is JOYful and flowing. Write it down.
Do it again and again adding more each time…and really feeling it, KNOW that it’s done. Because Your Older, Wiser Self is already LIVING and LOVING it!

Exercise: Head hold and breathe and go into the future to become BFF with your Older, Wiser Self…notice the life they have created for you and how much they are enjoying it.
Then  say Thank You Thank You Thank You! and repeat 3 times “ I return to Present Time, right here, right Now”.
Give yourself a 12 second hug to integrate your new learnings and reward yourself with lots of oxytocin, that loved up hormone that kicks in at 12 seconds and gives you the loving feeling that makes life flow easily.

What’s it All For?
A sense of Purpose, doing what you love that also benefits others is key to tapping in to the flow of Life.

Procrastination can come from a disconnect with Your Purpose in the project at hand…how can others’ benefit from what you are doing? Is it something You Love?

Once you are clear within yourself, have a sense of KNOWING this it is right for you for now, then the energy starts moving again.

It’s important to check-in with this regularly in future before you grind to a halt with disconnect. Being Your Beautiful, Authentic Self is the key.

Your Intuition Speaking

About timing: just as the sun rises and sets at precisely the right time each day everything in life has it’s own timing. Nothing happens before the precise time it is designed to. Sometimes we need to wait. Sometimes change direction. Sometimes call Time Out.

Your new mantra:  It’s much easier to wait/ stop/ call it/ recalibrate when you know that,
 “ The right solution/ healing/ process/ energy/ money/ direction/ moment/ people/ love/ resources etc arrive at the right time in the right way for me, and in the highest good of all concerned” . Pick you topic. Repeat 7 times, once a day for 7 days.
 
About listening: research and experience has taught me to sit with a feeling… this time procrastination, to feel it in my body, befriend it, talk to it and find out why it’s there and what it’s come to teach me. Procrastination arrives when:

We are over-doing it. Accept you are playing a looong game and need times to recuperate and feed your spirit before returning to the game.

Have you created your own deadline of “have to” through impatience or fear of loss.

Are you putting the needs of others before your own? Without self-care you could stay stuck, wondering what happened. Self care, self love and healthy boundaries help the energy to flow easily, positively and in support of you and your goals.

Wondering what others will think? Firstly, it’s none of your business what other’s think. Worrying about it will keep you stuck. Next, energy flows when you are Being your True Self…listening to and acting from your authentic self and highest good.
 
When you are pitching from the highest good all flows, others benefit and you begin to live your purpose.
 
When you are forcing things, hitting your head against a brick wall, pacing the floor, numbing yourself with booze, coffee, facebook/ Instagram, food or debilitating yourself with worry to a foetus position on the couch in front of Netflix you are procrastinating by disconnecting from Your True Self. Stop blaming Netflix, and the booze, food, coffee, facebook/ Instagram, food and anything else you use to distract your attention and deplete your energy from what is really going on in your life.
 
Exercise:

Sit quietly. Close your eyes, belly breathe for 9 breaths. Give yourself a hug.
Headhold and breathe…one hand across your forehead, the other across the bump in the back of your head. Belly breathe slowly IN for 4, hold for 2, OUT for 4, hold for 2, 9 reps….then hug yourself again.

It’s time to become your best friend…tell yourself you are safe, it will be okay and that you got this.  

Promise yourself to DO Something. Whatever you need you’ll do.
Whatever is causing the grind to a halt…you’ll listen, be kind and compassionate to yourself and validate all the reasons why you are procrastinating ( writing this conversation on paper and ripping it up after will help express it, validate it, release it and let it go).
Then ask yourself: What is the Next Step to getting the progress moving? It could be “Wait” or “ Sit and enJOY Netflix for 20 minutes”…which IS progress from sitting in a ball whipping yourself. You may get the picture or feeling or sound to prompt you to go for a walk outside, in nature; or to wash up, do the laundry, call a friend, have a salt water shower/ bath, head hold and breathe (so you can become lighter, Present, calm, clear and focused:)

What You Focus on Grows
Remember what you focus on grows…focus on feeling blocked and you will create it. Same with confusion, fear, sadness, self loathing.
How to stop the cycle?
Call the feeling for what it is, be specific…” I feel like shite” is too general. Better to be specific, “ I feel angry/ sad/ heavy/ stuck/ worthless/ useless/ a fraud”.
Once you call the feelings for what they are it creates a sense of validation.
You can then add what you want to be,
“ I want to feel clear, I am willing to be clear, I have clarity”
“ I want to feel calm, I am willing to feel calm, I am Calm, I am Calm, I am Calm”,
 “ I want to feel focused, I am willing to feel focused, I am focused, I am focused, I am focused.”
 You will notice the emotions and energy shift as you re-set your inner GPS to where you want to go and who you want to Be.

Bite size pieces

The bottom line? Ask yourself “What’s the next step”, then do it. Then ask again, then do it. No matter how small or pointless you think it is, do it. All of it is progress.
Listened to and acting on what is important to you tells your brain that you keep your promises to yourself & have your own back. It supports and grows your self esteem and self worth.
Reminding yourself, “You Got This”.
 In the meantime, please be kind.
And True to You.

Time To Let Go Of The Sadness And Guilt

 

Time to Let Go of the Sadness and Guilt

It’s in Autumn that we prune the dead wood and let go of the habits and beliefs than no longer work for us, creating room for healthy new growth to establish before Winter.

What ‘dead wood’? Holding onto old regrets, guilt, grudges and losses is exhausting work. It holds you back from living the life you are meant to.

Autumn is the time in Chinese Medicine when the lung and large intestine energy is at optimum levels to clean up, clear out and re-energise.

So now is the time to clear out the sore throats and congestion from unresolved emotions of old grief and guilt. It can reduce your resilience to fighting off bugs and make you vulnerable to chest and lung infections. Feeling blocked up? You can use the energy of Autumn to sort out any lung or large intestine issues, more easily.

Ignite Your Heart grads could re-visit the Ribbon Cutting process to clear out unresolved grief and guilt from relationships. While Living Life Passionately grads can work with the Defuse the Negative and Infuse the Positive process. Alternatively you can book a Personal Consultation to release the deepest patterns unique to you.

About Grief…
Over the last few weeks we have been experiencing the power of Autumn to release and let go, and many clients have been speaking of feeling a deep and heavy sadness. This is the season that unresolved guilt and grief come to the surface to heal. Our society handles grief badly. We expect those that are grieving to move on more quickly than we are designed, even though grieving our losses is a part of everyday life, whether from the loss of a relationship, a friendship, a loved one or pet, or the loss of a job, car or home.

The intensity of grief and its impact on everyday life can be debilitating. The brain does generate hormones to assist with the grieving process, eg. to get through the funeral and its aftermath, help those divorcing to separate lives and those made redundant sort the paperwork and begin to think of a new life without the old.

And just as the grieving are beginning to catch their breath the hormones of grief that help them through this transition stage begin to subside at about 6 weeks after the loss.

Which is usually when the casseroles and support begins to wane, and the grieving are told in words and actions ” to suck it up” and “get on with it”.

In my office over the years the most common remark from those grieving is how badly those around them react to their loss…as if it’s contagious the grieving are avoided at all costs for fear of catching ‘the death germ’ or saying the ‘wrong thing’.

So, just when the support is needed, those needing support are at a further loss to family and friends who seemingly desert them.

The unpredictability of grief is a part of this….as a process it cannot be measured by a step by step process…’oh, so you are stage 1 and have 4 more to go’ cannot be applied here.

The healing process moves according to the available energy to heal. I have worked with some clients who have only started to grieve 20 years after an event when they have the energy and ability to let go and heal themselves. Others find themselves caught unawares long after a loss they through they were’ done’ grieving.

Being Present is the last thing most want to do while grieving. The pain of the grief becomes more acute when Present, for a short period of time. Yet when sat with, breathed through and released healing can take place more deeply than those who distract themselves with the Past or chasing the Future.

Profound healing occurs in the Present and head holding and breathing is the perfect exercise to assist you to do that and allow you to grieve. And it takes time.

From a spiritual perspective I have learnt first hand that death is the end of a physical existence only and that a spirit and their love continues as strongly as ever, as does the connection of love shared.

These are all good reasons to be Present, to look for moments to be Grateful and to Live the Life You are Meant to, what is meaningful to YOU. When You are ready.

Please email me with any questions or to book an appointment to help you heal your grief.

In the meantime, please be kind.
Wishing You the best of blessings always,
Deb

Time To Transform!

 

 

Become “Powerful Beyond Measure”

I have had the privilege to hear first hand the remarkable dreams and aspirations of so many clients over the years. And the key element that stalls their progress is the possibility that their dreams might actually come true.

Funny creatures, aren’t we? We spend so much time blaming and working through own inadequacies only to come up against the wall of our own power. Our own ability to create the Life we are Meant to Live. Our own capacity to fulfil our goals and desires.

The thing is, we are doing it every day. The day you are experiencing today is in fact the day you have spent every moment up until now creating by your thoughts, actions, behaviours and feelings. By your responses to Life.
So if you have created this day, why not step it up? Start creating something much, much better. Scary thought, huh?

What if you could be as happy, healthy, fulfilled and rich as you want?

Really, really scary, huh? What would you have to complain about? Who would you have to blame? What would there be to blame them for?

And then when completion of your goals was close to hand – what would you do next? Would there really be nothing to do?

Or would there be a whole new world open to you with choices available to you that you had not even begun to consider NOW?

At this point, feeling overwhelmed by your life today, it’s important to remember that every response, every thought and emotion you have YOU are in charge of, responsible for.

As Marianne Williamson and Nelson Mandela have both been attributed to say,

“ Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.”

Make the most of the Autumn Equinox, this very special Time of Change and Transformation, receive the benefits of this powerful time, create the change you seek in your life more easily. Be ready to Let Go of anything holding you back from being your most wonderful you.

NOW is the time for You to KNOW You are “ Powerful beyond Measure.”

 

Autumn Equinox Let it Go Exercise

By doing this exercise at this time of year you can access the energy of the Autumn Equinox and the heightened spiritual energy of this time, you can let go and step forward into the life meant for you… gently, easily, lovingly and well supported.

1. Swish water around your mouth to wake up the brain then follow it with a normal mouthful of water to hydrate.

2. Headhold and Breathe…place your hand across the forehead and the other hand across the bump on the back of you head. This adds blood flow to the frontal lobe and calms the limbic system (home of emotions), also to the back brain…bringing you into Present Time. Headholding and breathing helps all quadrants of the brain to talk to each other. So instead of a fear reaction it gives you a Whole Brain response….centred, ground, focused, calm.

3. Now BREATHE through your NOSE: In for 4, hold for 2, OUT for 4, hold for 2 and repeat 9 times. The 3rd time you may feel more agitated/upset. The 6th breath you may feel fine. On the 9th breath you activate a deep relaxation response that allows you to imagine a future different from the past. Notice.

4. Now take a sheet of paper and write a Life Review:
Write any old memories that are surfacing, the Equinox will bring up ancient memories to help us make sense and heal from them. Take the time to write everything you remember from this time including your feelings, and the times since that it has become a problem for you. Write them all down then rip them up. Now is the perfect time to let them go.

Now take note of your current life…what is working and what doesn’t work in your life? Decide what you will take on this journey of your life moving forward. Then lighten the load. What more can you leave behind? Simplify. What old stories, old definitions of yourself, old self images can be left behind? Write them out and rip them up. Take only what you need moving forward.

5. Headhold and breathe, in for 4, hold for 2, out for 4, hold for 2. Repeat 9 times.

6. Imagine the energy field around your body filled with smog, mud, sludge. Imagine a celestial vacuum cleaner zooming around you cleaning your energy field of any emotional residue –wherever you feel heavy, sick, sad, angry in your body, let the vacuum cleaner clean it up. When it’s gone and you feel lighter DESTROY the vac. Send it to the sun, into a volcano, put it in a vat of acid. Nothing is to remain, it must be completely destroyed. Notice that your energy field is crystal clear and light, if not then repeat.

7. Headhold and breathe, swish some water.

8. Now begin to imagine what life will be like in 6 months, a year, 2 years, 10 years into the future. How do you walk, talk, hold yourself at this time? What are you doing at this time that is evidence that your life has changed? Write it down, the brain loves detail, so write it all down. The scene, the sense you get (eg. calm, fulfilled, at peace..)

9. Notice where you feel it in your body, breathe into that space in your body. Remember what you focus on grows, so feel that sense growing. Give it a colour- the first that comes to mind. Imagine it, feel it filling that space.

10. Now, give yourself a BIG self hug.

11. Next, now you know where you are heading focus on your life now.
Ask yourself…”In my Life now and moving forward where is ….”
The Joy
The Love
The healing
The laughter
The challenge
The triumph
The passion
The commitment
The purpose
Your spirit?

Creating the 2018 that was meant for you

What You Focus on Grows…

Are you focusing on the chaos, turbulence and uncertainty?
Or the freshness of the new? The magic of beginnings?
The trust that the right thing for You happens at the right time, in the right way?
What You Focus on Grows

 

Hi! It’s Deb Here!

WOW! What a fabulous time to be alive!

To take the opportunity of transformation! and heal.

All that chaos, doubt, messy thoughts and feelings you’ve been experiencing is your brain telling you to Pay Attention. That you now have the energy to release the stress of the past and the habits and patterns of thinking and feeling you’ve adopted to “Survive”. They can now be released more easily so you can “Thrive”. This is a transformation of healing. You have that Choice. Those of you de-cluttering, getting organised and integrating plans for the future into their life are living that Choice.

2018 numerologically and energetically is  the year for Passion and Purpose. This is The Year we have been working towards You and I! All the work we do here is to help you heal so you have the energy to step out of survival mode and walk your spiritual path and live your spiritual purpose with passion….love, commitment and purpose. And this is the year to be open to the unexpected good and receive it with Gratitude.

You’ve done the prep work. Now be open to receive the best in life, to live Your best life.

So listen to your feelings of imbalance, use the tools you have learnt here to find what You need to create Balance and Flow.

I’ve been booked to the rafters this week with those who have been doing that. The effects of this moon and eclipse will be felt for the next 3 weeks. If you’d like some help to start 2018 well and gain the most from this time come in for a Personal Consultation and/or to Meditation class.

In the meantime, enJOY the insights of this highly energetic time.

Be kind.
And true to you.
All my best, always,
Deb

A 5 Minute Story

I am up early most mornings to get down to the beach. Seeing a sneak preview from my balcony, on this day I was excited to watch the huge swell and white caps on a steely grey ocean.

As I walked out my front door I was met by my next door neighbour as she left to go to work. It’s rare we get to chat so we took the time to chat weather, about the building repairs, that sort of thing.

She explained her job as a retailer buying strategist, deciding what was selling and what to buy, can save the company lots of money. She enjoys what she does, she’d been doing it so long… and has a really good team.

We agreed that being surrounded by a good team of people was core to job happiness and the hardest and most important thing to find.

I commented it the work of her team must be core to the business and appreciated and she agreed….except most of the bosses really didn’t understand what her department does, “What do they actually do here?” was asked often until someone explained upstairs and saved their roles.

I empathised noting that after 15 years in Corporate, that HR and Recruitment is was always the first department under scrutiny for cutting staff. She laughed, agreed it was the most underappreciated.

She asked how I got into what I do and how long I’ve been doing it? I had been studying each night and weekends for years around my day job always looking for the next step out of corporate that felt right for me. Eventually I found it, with kinesiology, and when I was qualified started working nights and weekends ( in Campbelltown, Macquarie Street in Sydney City and in Balgowlah) until I moved around in Coogee.

Replacing the old habit, studying what I loved, with the new habit of working at doing what I love. So it was an easy transition until I was ready to practice fulltime.

She asked “ Well it was worth it huh? Looking at that view all day, doing what you love?”

” Absolutely. I call it a Life by Design ( big smile). I LOVE the view and am so grateful ( She concurred. She does too). I was working in my first HR role in the City, 2 floors below ground and the air conditioning came off the carpark. My little flat at the time faced a brickwall. I made the promise to myself I would find a place to live and work where I could LOVE and share the view. A Life By Design. Now I help others to do the same. ”

We continued to chat on her way to the bus stop, about the gym, meetings, her day ahead. Looking at the diary in my ‘work bag’ she asked where I was off to.

“I’m off to the beach for a Strategy meeting with myself”.

She almost choked laughing on the mouthful of water she was swigging. “I love it”, she declared, patting away the water she’d splurted from laughing.

“Yep, and sometimes I get the Employee of the Month Award”
“Sometimes? Are you tough on yourself?” she asked.
“Absolutely.  The toughest. REALLY tough boss. Enjoy Your day!”
She was still chuckling as she got on the bus.

The question remains: What design are you following to create the Life meant for You?
 

 

It’s a wrap

Hi There,

There is something about sitting around a fire that lights a sparks within us, comforts us, keeps us safe and allows us to share.

Ancient traditions knew this- the fire cooked their food, kept them warm and kept the wolves away keeping them safe from danger. It was there they would share stories, their traditions, their values and beliefs.

Dr Rachel Naomi Ramen, author of Kitchen Table Wisdom, talks about this in her book. “Everybody is a story,” writes Dr Ramen. “When I was a child, people sat around kitchen tables and told their stories. We don’t do that so much anymore. Sitting around the table telling stories is not just a way of passing time, it is the way the wisdom gets passed along. The stuff that helps us to live a life worth remembering. Despite the awesome powers of technology many of us still do not live very well. We may need to listen to one another’s stories again.”

Growing up I fondly remember visiting each set of grandparents each week, sitting at the dining table surrounded by cousins, aunts and uncles and listening to their stories. A lot of very funny stories of their time growing up, some sad stories that taught me about grief and loss, many stories about their worries and how they were overcoming them, or not. I learnt a lot around those tables about how to live life, or how not to.

So as often as I can, about once a month, I share stories with you, some personal, some from the ancient traditions and wisdoms …Lao Tzu, Native and South America, the Sages and the metaphysicians like Shakespeare and Dr Suess. These stories are reminders to look at life a little differently, more positively and in support of your spirit, your true essence.

The following story was given to me with a dvd of “The Rise of the Guardians” as truly one of the very best birthday presents I have ever received – they speak to my heart and feed my spirit. For that gift and for the gift of taking the time to see my spirit I am deeply grateful. That’s what stories do- allow you to take the time to listen to your heart and spirit….it’s the most profound way to be healthy.

Now, because a gift shared is a gift that keeps on giving, here is part of the story for you. Enjoy!

A 5 Minute Story

“ The Wemmicks were small wooden people. All of the wooden people were carved by a woodworker named Eli. His workshop sat on a hill overlooking their village.

Each Wemmick was different. Some had big noses, others had large eyes. Some were tall and others were short. Some wore hats, others wore coats. But all were made by the same carver and all lived in the village.

And all day, every day, the Wemmicks did the same thing: They gave each other stickers. Each Wemmick had a box of golden star stickers and a box of grey dot stickers. Up and down the streets all over the city, people spent their days sticking stars or dots on one another.

The pretty ones, those with smooth wood and fine paint, always got stars. But if the wood was rough or the paint chipped, the Wemmicks gave dots.

The talented one got stars, too. Some could lift big sticks high about their heads or jump over tall boxes. Still others knew big words or could sing pretty songs. Everyone gave them stars.

Some Wemmicks had stars all over  them! Every time they got a star it made them feel so good! It made them want to do something else and get another star.

Others, though, could do little. They got dots.

Punchinello was one of these. He tried to jump high like the others, but he always fell. And when he fell, the others would gather around and give him dots.

Sometimes when he fell, his wood got scratched, so the people would give him more dots.

When he tried to explain why he had fallen, he would say something silly, and the Wemmicks would give him more dots.

After a while he had so many dots that he didn’t want to go outside. He was afraid he would do something silly, such as forget his hat or step in the water, and then people would give him another dot. In fact, he had so many grey dots that some people came up and gave him dots for no reason at all.

“He deserves lots of dots,” the wooden people would agree with one another.

“He’s not a good wooden person.”

After a while Pinchinello believed them. “I’m not a good Wemmick,’ he would say.

The few times he went outside, he hung around other Wemmicks who also had a lot of dots. He felt better around them.

One day he met a Wemmick who was unlike any he’d ever met. She had no dots or stars. She was just wooden. Her name was Lucia.

It wasn’t that people didn’t try to give her stickers; it was just that the stickers didn’t stick. Some of the Wemmicks admired Lucia for having no dots, so they would run up and give her a star. But it would fall off. Others looked down on her for having no stars, so they would give her a dot. But that wouldn’t stick either.

That’s the way I want to be, thought Punchinello. I don’t want anyone’s marks.

So he asked the stickerless  Wemmick how she did it.

“It’s easy,” Lucia replied. “Every day I go to see Eli.”

“Eli?”

“Yes, Eli. The woodcarver.  I sit in the workshop with him.”

“Why?”

“Why don’t you find out for yourself? Go up the hill. He’s there.”

And with that the Wemmick who had no stickers turned and skipped away.”

Be kind. And true to You.
All my best always,
Deb

 

Welcome to the solstice – let’s celebrate

A BIG Thank You Thank You Thank You! to all those in attendance for the FULLY BOOKED Summer Solstice Meditation Special Event last night! What an amazing energy of completion for 2017 and a wonderful way to keep the progress growing into 2018…by connecting to the Divine & Your Path. What a way to keep ‘on track’. Bravo!

Thought for the Season

“Whatever your particular path may be, it’s important to recognize that all are like rivers that flow to the same sea. The purpose of every path is the same: to brings us into communion with our own true Self and the Spirit of Guidance.”
From Your Soul’s Compass by Joan Borysenko Ph.D/Gordon Dveirin Ed.D

Let’s Celebrate!

For many, 2017 has been a difficult year. And a year of transformation. Many life lessons learnt, self value increased, new healthy boundaries & habits adopted and Positive Change created.

A year when what is truly important in life has revealed itself either through grief or joy. A year of endings and new beginnings based on the learnings of the past.

This time of year for many faiths is a time of Celebration.

While Christians celebrate Christmas as the birth of Jesus Christ, Jews have just finished celebrating Hanukkah or “Festival of Lights”, an 8 day observance which recalls a miracle in the Jerusalem temple.

On December 8 Buddhists celebrated Bodhi Day – the day Buddha is believed to have achieved enlightenment.  In September, Muslims celebrated the holy Id al-Adha, the Feast of Sacrifice, immediately following the Hajj, pilgrimage to Mecca, and the Wiccans celebrate Yule on December 21, which is where the term Yuletide comes from.

Celebrations of Light & Miracles!!!

Meanwhile, my valued clients and friends in the Northern hemisphere… in Chigaco, LA, London and Paris….are entering the Winter Solstice ( the longest night and shortest day) and prepare to enjoy the warmth of the hearth and to listen to their inner voice. The actual Solstice is Thursday, 21 December 2017 at 16:28 UTC…a great time to do the Solstice exercise below. And as always, each Equinox and Solstice event, you will also receive your own Winter Solstice Exercise too.

In sensational Coogee and the rest of the southern hemisphere, we are entering the time of the Summer Solstice, the longest day and shortest night, from December 19 -22, in fact the actual Solstice is at 3.28am Friday 22nd….a fun time to do the Solstice exercise below.. The Summer Solstice is the time of celebration of the harvest… the fruit of the seeds sown in spring are NOW ripe for picking. We are ready to CELEBRATE and reap the rewards of our labours!

It is time to enjoy the fruits of all the work you have put into creating a Passionate and Spirited Life, to celebrate the release of your old thoughts and habits and to celebrate moving toward Living the Life You are Meant to!

Here’s one way to do that:

Solstice Exercise 1: The Spiritual Agenda

I have seen some amazing transformations, choices and been witness to some of your wonderful processes in the last year. Thankyou. I have watched your love and respect grow for yourself as you honour the light that is within you and realize your truth. Thankyou.

And at this most amazingly spiritual time I offer you a gift, the gift of…

The Spiritual Agenda

Life at this time can be fast, busy and an emotional rollercoaster. Before you start your celebrations can I suggest that you write a list:

“The Top 5 Important Understandings and Learnings”
that you want to gain over the next 2 weeks (that includes NYE).

They could be new understandings or learnings:

about yourself and your relationship with yourself, others and Life;

about family members or friends you conflict with;

about Life itself.
Then describe what that would sense that would bring to you….
peace, grace, calm, joy, love, completion?

Here are 2 examples:

“ It is now December 27, 2017 and all the Christmas visits are over. I have a new understanding of why I behave/ think/ feel the way I do about (mum/ dad/ sister/ brother/ partner/ situation/ etc) and I now have a sense of peace/ calm/ acceptance, etc .”

Or, “It is now January 3, 2018 and I have had a Christmas filled with lots of love and laughter. I have a new understanding of (mum/ dad/ sister/ brother/ partner/ etc) and why they are who they are/ behave that way and I have a new sense of respect for them.”

Why do this exercise? It helps set your Inner GPS toward creating the Life You are Meant to Live – filled with love, commitment, purpose, passion and Spirit. Let me know how it works for you.

Wishing you a loving, laughter-filled and Spirited Festive Season,

Love and Blessings,
Deb xxx

 

 

5 Minute Moment

Clients are taking this opportunity to let go of old, deep wounds, releasing lots of intense emotions (like anger, deep sadness & confusion), coming through their Personal Consultation lighter, happier, clearer on their direction and purpose, and inspired. This is indeed an extraordinary time.

Those already on track are achieving results that previously they would never have thought possible. In fact the most common comment I hear is ” Deb, when I look back over the last year I am amazed at how much I’ve done and how far I’ve come. Thank You.”

You know I LOVE to help You make Positive Change and Goal Getting easier because it means you can BE Living the Life Meant for You.

So when are You going to make time for You, to become lighter, happier, clear on your purpose with the energy to make it happen? This is the perfect time to book your next Personal Consultation.

You can enJOY the energy of celebration, completion and the rewards for the work you have done. Now is the time to discover the energy and strategies to keeping the progress growing into the next year.

Meanwhile, as we near the Summer Solstice…

Listen to your Inner Voice telling you, showing you what you need to Be Nourished.

Notice.

Then grab your board and surf The Flow, You are in ‘the Zone’.

DO the work necessary.

Focus on the detail.

Dot the ‘I’s”, cross the ‘T’s”.

Prepare for Completion.

Then you can really enJOY the Rewards of the Harvest.

I was introduced to astrologer, author and teacher Tosha Silver through the work of Women’s Health Expert Dr Christiane Northrup Ob/ Gyn ( whose books connect Women’s Health and the way we think with the way we feel, with health/ illhealth and energy/ fatigue. They all come together to create a woman’s health or symptoms. I’ve seen Women’s Bodies, Women’s WisdomThe Wisdom of Menopause and Goddesses Never Age create profound change in the lives of clients interested in understanding their cycles & bodies and wanting to learn more about creating health, passion and longevity.)

I am finding Outrageous Openness, Tosha’s first book, has an intensely profound yet subtle effect on client’s lives and the way they live their life…through their Divine Connection within.

This story is particularly timely for when the busy busyness occurring now, makes it easy to forget who we really are. Read on, and enJOY!

NO CHASING
by Tosha Silver

A couple weeks ago, when I was in Hawaii, I slipped on a hiking trail and recreated an old knee injury from years ago. (I could insert a 20 page thesis here on Capricorns and knees but I’ll try to stay on topic:)) Anyway, thanks to acupuncture it’s been slowly healing, but the day after it happened I hobbled into the local health food store for help. I asked the cashier if anyone could point out what essential oils were good for a sprain.

She rolled her eyes and said, ‘The manager knows ALL about them but she’s super busy right now. You could go hunt her down in the back and If you’re lucky maybe she’ll give you a minute. But don’t get your hopes up.”

I couldn’t help but giggle a bit. ‘You know thanks but um…I. Don’t. Chase. ANYTHING!! And anyway, if I really need to know this, I’ll get shown another way.’

At that moment the lady behind me in a purple sarong, crystal necklaces, and an orchid behind her ear said, ‘Wow, so sorry for eavesdropping! I’m a naturopath and oils are right up my alley. Let me take you over here and show you which to get.’

And for the next twenty minutes I not only got introduced to the healing powers of cypress, peppermint and frankincense oils but made a new friend. (Or was she an actual goddess?)

So here’s how it goes. You NEVER have to chase or force it with ANYONE. Once Divine Order is fully called in, you give Love Itself complete permission to solve a problem using WHATEVER form She wants. You become open to receive, and follow where you’re guided.

And the Universe, well the Universe may just unroll at your feet (even when they’re injured:)
