For as long as I have been on the spiritual path, I have heard the wisdom of those talking about the ‘I AM’ Presence – our Higher self, our Monad or God self. The mighty I AM is defined as our unique and immortal true identity and, as I have found, personally and with clients, has been within us the entire time. We are our ‘I AM’ presence.
The sacred seat of our infinite self, our ‘I AM’ holds a library of infinite wisdom of the Divine. ‘I AM’ holds more wisdom of our eternal selves than any information that our minds can accumulate in the one lifetime.
What a beautiful stone blue lace agate is. Delicate light blue colour with its lacy white or light grey banding. But don’t be fooled by its almost ethereal appearance, blue lace agate has the power to calm, soothe and the ability to bring back balance.
Although Agates vibrate at a slower frequency than other stones, they are highly regarded as a stabilising and strengthening influences.
Suggested flower remedies for September are Vervain and Wild Oat:
This remedy helps with over-enthusiasm and constant mental activity leading to exhaustion and mental tension. A great remedy for those who find it difficult to relax and those who are perfectionists prone to overwork, pushing beyond their limits and becoming highly sensitive and stressed as a result. Vervain restores balance, puts everything into perspective and encourages calmness.
Remedy to take when there is uncertainty and lack of direction. People requiring Wild Oat may be highly ambitious and very talented but they don’t really know how to use these talents and may move rapidly from one thing to another. The remedy helps strengthen inner connection, clarity of direction and moving forward with a clear vision of the future.
Did you know that anyone can experience a ‘gut instinct’ or ‘intuition’ and that the value of intuition is now recognised in the corporate world?
A ‘Gut Feeling or Instinct’ also known as your intuition is the ability to feel and just know things without any conscious input. Your intuition can be your best friend as it lets you know something is wrong (or right) and it’s so important to listen to it and trust it.
Welcome to September Astrology forecast
The Sun has made its transit into the earthly sign of Virgo. The chatty,busy and sensitive sign of the zodiac. Being ruled by the planet Mercury anything regarding information and communication is paramount. In fact this month has an effervescent flow of Virgo energy as Mars moves into this sign on sept 5th,Mercury on the 10th and Venus on the 20th
Did you know that the gastrointestinal tract (also known as ‘the gut’) is the body’s largest sensory organ?
With a huge surface area, the gut consists of mainly smooth muscle and works on an unconscious(involuntary) level. It contains millions of nerves which are different from those found elsewhere in the body and the nerve network in the Gut is as extensive and complex as the nerve network in the brain.
Your Body Knows Your Trouble
What is it trying to tell you? Gaining the wisdom to know what your body needs is probably the greatest gift you can give yourself.
In his film “Manhattan”, Woody Allen says to Mia Farrow: “I can’t express anger. I grow a tumor instead”.
Some people might say our health is our birthright, but I would urge you to listen to your body rather than ignore signals of ill health. From 25 years of experience with holistic work, I believe it to be essential to learn to understand how our thoughts and emotions affect our health.What is it trying to tell you?
Dancing with Change – the Hoodoos and how dos
Whether you work in an office, factory, from home or on your home and family, the concept of joy at work is so important. You spend most of your waking hours for most of your life doing it in some form or other. Mostly I hear people bemoan some aspect of work: they dread waking up, they hate a co-worker, things are always changing, the place is distressing...
Below is the story of my mum’s final days as I sat in vigil with her. The art of vigiling is as old as time – to sit with a dying person, to honour their journey by being a loving presence next to them. When my mum died, I sat with her because I loved her and didn’t know what else to do. Now I know that if sitting with someone, holding their hand, is all you do – you have done enough
Having Too Many Balls in The Air!
I love my OSHO Zen Tarot cards, as they invite us to look at health issues in our life through different eyes. The stress card has the following message:
“How many people do you know who, just when they were completely overloaded, with too many projects, too many balls in the air, have suddenly come down with the flu, or taken a fall and ended up on crutches? That’s just the sort of bad timing the little monkey with the pin in his hand is about to impose on the one-man-band pictured here. The quality of stress represented by this card visits all of us at times, but perfectionists are particularly vulnerable to it. We create it ourselves, with the idea that without us nothing will happen–especially in the way we want it to! Well, what makes you think you’re so special? Do you think the sun won’t rise in the morning unless you personally set the alarm? Go for a walk, buy some flowers, and fix yourself a spaghetti dinner–anything unimportant will do. Just put yourself out of that monkey’s reach!”
Reciprocity – it can be a lovely word, but may also have a sting in the tail.
And that will depend on your expectation. If you do something expecting a certain response, you may well be setting yourself up for a disappointment.
It is an aspect of unconditional love. Just for today, have in your mind that whatever you do, you do because you want to, expect nothing in return. For example, if you let someone out into the traffic, do not expect a thank you. If you let someone get their coffee before you, don't expect a positive response. Do it because you want to.
Wellness initiatives are designed to boost the health and well-being of employees with the end goal of improving employee morale, boosting engagement, enhancing company performance and cutting down on employee absenteeism or in some cases employee presenteeism.
Much has happened over the past decade with regards to introducing employee well-being into the workplace.
I am walking on the coast. A lady behind me shouts ahead to her grandchildren and then apologises for shouting in my ear and being over-attentive. The conversation went like this:
I responded with a smile and said: ‘No worries I’d love my mum to still be here being over-attentive.’
She said: ‘Oh you have lost someone. My husband died 20 months ago.’
This is the moment … when you have a chance to make a real difference to someone.
I said: ‘Oh, only 20 months.’
As of late, I have had a number of students and clients who have been working through the challenge of climbing the insurmountable mountain of perfection. The general feeling of fatigue, exhaustion and self flagellation of constantly doing and not meeting their expectations OR not doing due to the fear of not meeting expectations, have dimmed the light on these beautiful vibrant souls.
Striving for perfection stops us from Being the best that we can be.
On the 4th July Venus enters Gemini. The planet related to love and money is in the airy sign of Gemini equalling space and freedom of movement both physically and emotionally. The mind requires stimulation - think rational rather than empathic.
Communicating your love/romance needs is important. This energy here is flirty, free and is attracted to witty people. Gemini are the infamous twins and where money is concerned can be a free spirit so time to be mindful of your finances and not be fickle.
