Let’s Be Honest.

Find your truth.

I have been doing a  lot of soul searching over the past few months and recently I fell into a bit of a slump. Today I finally got back to work, back to my office and back to my shrine to recharge and put myself together again. Tomorrow I’m starting a brand new yoga challenge and I’m looking forward to expanding my personal practice. 
Over the last few months, I have become a Reiki practitioner and crystal healer, I opened my practice and have been spreading loving energy out to the world everyday. I have met new people and built new friendships. I have been practicing yoga for almost 9 months now and am planning to study it further to become an instructor and teacher. I have grown so much and I am so grateful. 
In this time spent with myself and my practices I have found my truth and that is what I would like to write about today. I believe in the unity of all humanity and that we need to work together to save this beautiful planet we live on called Earth. Earth is my mother and I am an Earth Warrior. That is my truth. 💓🌻🌲
I encourage you to sit in silence everyday with the intention of finding your truth, who you really are will come to light and you will be that much closer to being enlightened. Meditation is the best way to be with yourself and get to know yourself. Go home to yourself everyday, offer yourself love and kindness, be compassionate towards your thoughts and feelings, BREATH, know that YOU ARE ENOUGH! With these practices you will become more aware of yourself, your thoughts and intentions- your truth will speak to you and then you can start growing and take action! 

Know the truth and speak the truth. 

Let us all be honest with ourselves and the people surrounding us. 
Too many lies are told, too many lies are depicted in our lives every day. The media lies, the people governing us lie, our parents lie and therefore we lie. 
The time to speak the truth is now, let us dig deep and explore our truth. We were born to live freely, openly and truthfully. As humanity we are capable of so much! We just need to be open and awakened to the truth. 
Our truths may not all sound the same but they are based in the same thing, which is love and compassion. We are all different, some of us may be healers, earth warriors, fixers, protectors, parents or leaders but we must understand that our truths are made from love and that we must speak this truth with love in our hearts, we must do what we do best with love in our hearts.  

Practice your truth. 

Once you know your truth and you have started to spread it, you must never stop practicing it. The more you practice your truth the more you will find. You are getting to know yourself, your true self and that is beautiful. 
You are made up of past life and generational experiences, find the truth laced in all of it. You will find it in every action and thought. It has been trying to tell you for years and years, now you have heard your truth- find the rest of it, explore it and have fun with it! 

Never forget to keep spreading it! 


Help people to find themselves, find their truths and hopefully we can begin to create a world full of open, honest and loving people.


Let’s Be Happy!

Start your day with a smile on your face!

It is so important to start out on the right foot, it sets the tone for the rest of the day. That’s why we should all make it a priority to be happy and grateful in the mornings. 
You have woken up to a new day! You are still alive on this beautiful planet! We need to rejoice, send good vibrations out into the universe so that you can attract more wonderful things to be grateful for through out your day! 😄
I often say to people, that the minute your feet hit the ground in the mornings take a deep breath, smile and think of all the things you are grateful for. Start out by at least naming ten things you are grateful for. Your day will go smoother, you will feel lighter and you will be making space for more to enter your life. Follow your breath when thinking of the things you are grateful for, breathing in think of the item or person you are grateful for, breathing out say thank you. Really feel the gratitude, project that gratitude outwards into the world and take note on how that makes you feel. When I do this I instantly feel happy! I can’t keep the smile from spreading on my face! I love how the gratitude makes me feel. 

We all need grounding, most of us are always in our head thinking too much. When we practice gratitude we manifest more things to be grateful for, if we are so busy in our heads and we aren’t grounded then we wont be able to enjoy the things that the universe gives us. So, I like to ground myself after any kind of self growth practice. After you have listed your ten things your are most grateful for, after you’ve felt it and projected it then you need to ground it. You can easily ground yourself by using your five senses. 
Look around and list 5 things you see.
                                4 things you feel
                                3 things you hear
                                2 things you smell
                                1 thing you taste
This is a very simple and doable exercise. It immediately brings you back to the moment and grounds you. Make this exercise even more powerful by following your breath while acknowledging each sense.   
Let us remember that above all we are worthy of what makes us happy. We do deserve to have beauty in our lives. Let us all be more grateful, more gentle and more loving towards ourselves and others.
Lets all be happy together!
I hope you find these practices as enjoyable as I do.
Until next time

Dealing with fear.

Don’t let it rule you. 

I have been challenged by fear these past few days, not only personally but for others round me too. Stories of other peoples fears have emerged and it really bothered me. By hearing of others stress and anxiety it made me sit up and take control of my own fears. I have OCD and Chronic Fatigue, having these two bothersome parts of me really does encourage the ego to take a hold of me and fuel the irrational thoughts in my mind. 
I was recently triggered and have had to deal with my fears taking over my mind. Last night after spending time with some family and listening to their worries, and brainstorming ways of dealing with them and possible causes did I come to the realization that this fear isn’t mine. It is past life nonsense that was triggered in this life time. I went even further and realized that it wasn’t only past life but ancestral past life. You see as humans we carry the genes of our ancestors, we are connected to our ancestors even if they have left this realm we still hold their genes and in these genes are all of their traumas. So if you have a problem with heights, it doesn’t necessarily mean that its your problem. When you come to this realization it makes it a lot easier to make peace with whatever is bothering you and move on.  
The tricky part is differentiating what belongs to your current karma, what is past life and what is generational. We can delve further into this topic in a later post. I just want to give you a different perspective. 
So, the fear I had been struggling with turned out to not only be ancestral but it was also connected to a past life of one of my ancestors from this life. It sounds complicated I know, but all you have to know is that once you can see your problems in this way the rest is a breeze. Once I had come to this realization, I could separate myself from my fears and forgive wholeheartedly the wrong that was committed so very long ago. Every time the thought would surface I would forgive and let go, I am very happy to say that I feel much better and lighter. I am so happy to know that I have dealt with harmful karma in a peaceful way. 

Never be afraid to let go of what is not serving you. We are here on earth to live full, peaceful and happy lives. We are here to bring peace to ourselves, to our fellow humans and our dear Mother Earth. If we just give in to our fears, our anger and our ego, we will struggle to do what we came here to do. By allowing our own suffering, how will we ever be able to help ease the suffering of others?

Remember how powerful our thoughts are, what we are thinking we are bringing into this world. Think of what kind of impact that will have on our great Mother… Think of the impact it will have on your fellow human and what impact it will have on your self. You have the power to change that thought, you can be different and peaceful. You don’t have to conform, you can love and forgive and be who you were meant to be. By taking control of your thoughts and taking care of your Karma, you won’t leave any baggage for the future generation in your family. They won’t have those worry genes, they won’t have to forgive your past mistakes and they can live in peace too. The next time you get angry or you let your thoughts control you, just stop and think of your future grandchildren or great grandchildren, they are our future. Do you want the toxicity you are feeling within yourself to be passed down to them? Do you want them to have to deal with your issues or do you want to take care of your Karma, your issues and your suffering now? Then they never have to worry about it. 
It’s time to let go and just live for ourselves in the now! By being mindful and living in complete peace we can create a much better future. Let go of that control and go with the flow of the Universe. Dance under the light of the moon, meditate with the Mother, love the temple that is your body and be grateful for all you have in this glorious world. 
Know that your Soul loves you and you must love it back. 
Next time you meditate, think about your ancestors. Thank them for everything they passed on to you and realize that if it wasn’t for their lessons that you carry inside of yourself, you wouldn’t be able to work on yourself so that you can give your future generations less to worry about. 
Be kind to yourself and others. 
I’m sending love and light to everyone that needs it and I’ll chat to you all soon with the next post. 
Peace and Love

Everyday Mindfulness

Be Mindful with the Earth.

Mindfulness will always be the first step to a more fulfilling life. So lets start being mindful towards our great Mother. 🌍
She is the reason we are all alive and she continues to live and thrive for us. We are treating her cruelly and if we don’t change our ways, death will be the price she will pay for loving us so wholeheartedly. Mother Earth is crying out, to protect herself she will have to destroy us all. I would rather her destroy us than us destroy her. 
So let us all make an extra effort to pour our love back into her. Let us walk with her, talk to her and tell her how much we appreciate her, just as you would with your beloved mom on mothers day or her birthday.
Mother Earth appreciates our kindness and we can heal ourselves with her special vibrations. Just by walking on the earth barefoot you are taking in her life force energy, then with thanks give her your life force energy. It’s all about give and take. She heals you and you in turn heal her. 
If you see a plant struggling to live, perhaps the sun is too hot or there hasn’t been rain in a long time, go to that plant and offer it your loving energy. You will help that plant more than you can ever know, and it will thank you by always remembering your goodness. Every act of kindness you show towards the earth makes a life changing difference. 

I love these words by Tich Nhat Hanh, “Walk as if you are kissing the earth with your feet.”
When in walking meditation, make it your intention to love the earth. Kiss the earth with your feet, breathing in you have arrived, breathing out you kiss the earth. Each step you take will feel lighter and coming out of that meditation you will know that you have made a real difference in your life and in the earths.

One should sit with the flowers, bum on earth, feet in the sand and meditate. Ask the flowers if they would like to join you in meditation, you should feel them answer. Sit with them in a Loving Kindness meditation and together with the flowers you can send love and kindness to the whole world. I find this to be a very powerful practice and its one of my favorites. You are not only connecting with the earth but the people living here with you. We are all connected, we are all one, we need to start loving more and then peace should follow. 
I hope you enjoyed this post, I just wanted to share some of my thoughts for today. 
Until next time, 
Peace and Love

Positive Practice.

I know it’s been a while and I’ve really felt this as a stressful time but I have achieved so much, I can’t help but be proud. I don’t even remember the last time I blogged, I haven’t felt the freeing flow of inspiration in a while. I decided that instead of pushing myself, I would just relax and be. 
The most important thing I learnt in this time is that we must not judge our thoughts or feelings and by acknowledging this I started to feel much better. I won’t pretend I’m back to myself yet, but I am on my way there. Today was another hard day and I do realize that I must take complete and full responsibility for it, I must take care of my karma because my thoughts and actions do have consequences. My fear and irrational thoughts have been drowning me this past week, today after another panic attack I realized the danger of my actions. I was creating karma that needed to be taken care of, I was judging my thoughts and feelings. I was entertaining bad self talk, I haven’t fallen this far in a very long time, not since I started practicing Buddhism. This realization shocked me. I let my ego take control because I felt too physically tired to fix any of my problems. Today I took a stand and delved deep into myself to better understand where all of these old wounds were coming back from. What is the real problem, where does it stem from because in order to heal and get better one can’t just put a plaster over these feelings. I needed to find what I need to make peace with in order to let go of these irrational fears. I managed to unfurl some issues and I feel much lighter now that I have let them go with love.
Buddhism has changed my life in so many ways, it keeps teaching me new lessons and it is always there to lend a different perspective. 
Yoga has taught me to trust in my body and what it is capable of, if you mindfully trust your body the universe will aid you in your practice. Listen to your body, listen to the energy and go with the flow. If you are attempting a position like Crow Pose and as you lean forward you feel resistance then trust in your body, it could be telling you that your feet are too far apart or that your knees aren’t in the right place. By listening to your body and the energy around it you could save yourself from falling. 
Reiki has provided me with many tools to help myself and others. When I feel distressed I know that I can help lessen the pain and anxiety with a calm self healing treatment. If someone around me accidentally hurts themselves I have the knowledge on how to help that person feel less pain. 
Meditation has introduced me to myself, I have gained wonderful insight into who I am, mind, body and soul. I sit in meditation everyday, more than once a day and if somehow I don’t meditate I feel uneasy. I always make time for my daily practices. 
When I practice I am making time to love myself, this is something everyone should do. 

I didn’t change, I just woke up. 

I am more myself now than I have ever been but I haven’t changed. All that happened is that I’ve become comfortable with myself, I started loving the person I am and I realized how much I have to offer the world. I woke up to the possibilities that I am. I have the universe in me, just as everyone else does too. People come to realize this at different times. You who is reading this right now, you have the whole universe inside of you. You are everything and that is beautiful. You are Epic, Complete and Full of Love! Please, when you come to terms with how large you are, remember this, these emotions you are feeling now are telling you a story. Remember the time when you started thinking of other possibilities, whether it be now reading these words or if it was years ago when your reality became clear, remember how far you have come and be proud of yourself. 

As long as you are open to listening, your soul will speak to you, there is so much you can learn from yourself. So to conclude, please remember to be kind to yourself and others.

Peace and Love
