Change is simply Spirits vehicle for growth

Change…The Vehicle for Growth

Change is a constant energy – because energy is always moving, it is never static and therefore change is always a moving energy.
 
I am sure we all find change difficult at times, some more so than others and we are also creatures of habit so something that shifts that habit creates something uncomfortable that we don’t always want to acknowledge.
 
Yet, if we can think of change as growth we perhaps lend a different perspective. We may have to work at keeping our mind focussed on the learning that comes with growth rather than the challenge that often comes with change, but that is another story!
 
Growth is good isn’t it? It is also exciting. When things start to sprout we have no idea at first where they might lead. We are able to explore the adventure within us.
 
We feel the shift – we feel it within our energy, that sense of vibration changing and starting to resonate differently. We feel it within our mind, that sense of expanding into new potential. We feel it within our emotions, that sense of pushing through boundaries and we feel it within our spirit, that sense of freedom.
 
And yet growth, once started, doesn’t just happen. It take consistent effort and unending patience. Effort to carry on moving forward when all we might want to do is stop, curl in a small heap and stay safely where we are. Patience to gently carry on making the effort even though the results or shifts that we might be expecting, might be hoping for don’t happen as quickly as we would want or indeed need.
 
Growth also takes trust. It takes trust in ourselves, in our capability and ability, in our courage and vulnerability, determination and resilience.
 
It takes trust in Spirit – trust that their guiding force is the guiding force that is guiding our steps, influencing our inspiration and encouraging that sense of progress even when said progress cannot yet be tangibly seen but only felt by the soul.
 
We have to learn to walk on the shifting shapes of the clouds, gently taking steps at some points in time, leaping from one tenuous cloud to another at other times and hanging on for dear life when we feel scared before taking a breath anyway, feeling scared anyway and letting go, allowing our own courage, our own grace, our own spirit to be as one with the breath of the Spirit…creating miracles the second that we do let go and trust not only in Spirit and in ourselves but also in the divine and amazing process of life, to take us on a journey, on an adventure into and of ourselves.
 
We don’t grow by holding on – and I am not talking about people or situations. We don’t grow by holding on to ourselves.
 
We grow by letting go of who we are, by letting go of who we think we are, of who we believe we are…time and time and time again so that in every moment the soul has the ability to renew itself in a greater expression of its’ truth and so that in every moment we have the opportunity to understand more of our truth and allow it, in that moment, to be our expression.
Change…it is simply the vehicle for growth.
Growth. 
It is never about others. It is never about situations or circumstances. It is always about ourselves.
And it is always about letting go of ourselves in that moment, in every moment and surrendering to the greater force of life, the Spirit, that works through us.
Breathe your light, live your love and trust in the process of life

The Art of Communication – Vlog 3

Join me in Vlog 3 as I share a new project I’m working on, discuss how vlogging is making me think about how I communicate, why sharing ideas can be so supportive and why we stop ourselves from sharing who we are and what do.

Catch up with all my vlogs as they are released by checking out my page on YouTube

The Journey

I’ve just returned from a weekend in the North Yorkshire Moors where I have had the privilege of hosting a trance mediumship weekend with a group of wonderful people and, of course, with the amazing presence of spirit.

After weekends such as these I always find myself reflecting during the journey back home – it’s my space, it’s time when I am just with myself, driving along and where time is suspended in some way – I am sure we have all that that feeling when driving a distance.

Time out…and time IN

It’s been a little while since my last blog – and it’s good to take time out, even of things we really enjoy isn’t it? Life in general gets so busy and moves at such a pace that we often simply keep on ploughing through and before we know it, we are running out of steam, worn out – mentally, emotionally and physically – and just desperate for rest, sleep and more rest and yet we never know when we are going to find the time to do that.

Interestingly something I have learned over the years is that we very rarely find the time. For something important to us or our well-being, we have the make the time. It actually tells us how much we value ourselves whether we make the time or not….

The Gift of Grief

As some of you reading this will know, my lovely Grandma passed to Spirit last week. She was 95, and was really well until the last few years.

Gran was a cornerstone of my life; she helped bring me up when I was younger as my mother worked away and she was, until the last few years, the one unchanging and constant aspect of my life.

Through changing times, growing pains, moving on and upwards through life and experience, my Gran’s constancy was like a lighthouse shining brightly to guide my ship through the turbulent seas of life. She never changed, never wavered and my understanding of her unchangeable nature was a security blanket through any changes I might have been going through.

Both my mum and I were with her when she passed. We were called as her breathing changed and spent several hours with her. I wasn’t sure she was actually ready to pass – she had been on an end of life care plan for only a few days and there is never a finite timing with such things – and then all of a sudden I felt my Grandad step in and I knew.

Shine Your Light and Believe in the Power of You

I want to tell you a story…

There was a girl born into a decent middle class family. Her parents split just before she was born and so her mother became a one parent family with the support of her parents who helped bring the little girl up during her early years as her mother often worked away where she earned good money to support her daughter.

The little girl often found it difficult to express herself articulately as she was emotional and sensitive and this wasn’t as understood then as it is now.

She was good at school but with no real passion for any subject except perhaps English literature – she loved stories.

Breathe Light, Live Love

Breathe Light, Live Love

An inspiration given to me by one of the trance energies I work with – Morning Star as I have named ‘her’ as the energy feels very graceful, very gentle and feminine in nature.

Breathe Light

What does light do? It chases away shadow; it brightens the darkest day. It lifts us to a place of hope when in despair and to a place of grace when in grief. Can we really breathe light? I believe we can. I believe we breathe it into ourselves, into our being, into our very soul. I also believe we breathe out light too.
