Are you seeing the numbers 11:11?

repeating numbers 11:11, 333, 444, sign, what does, life

When I was back in Sydney for Christmas I was in the car with my dad and he looked down at the clock and said “Of course it is.”

“Of course it is what?” I asked back, both bemused and confused.

“11:11am! It’s always 11:11 when I look at the time! I see those numbers everywhere!”

I was pretty gobsmacked. I don’t know why I thought this phenomenon had skipped my parents… Maybe it’s because on some level I still don’t recognise my parents as separate adults existing in this world not only as my parents…. But my dad has been seeing the numbers 11:11 everywhere!

This is part of the shift, the expanding awareness of people on this planet. And if you are seeing these numbers you are awakening from the walking slumber most of us have lived in for some time. It is a sign that even if things might feel hard, confusing or like an uphill struggle that you are still on the right path. It is a sign to let you know that you are doing really well! And to keep going. Something is happening even if it doesn’t feel like it. 

The most common repeating numbers that I see are 11:11, 333 and 444. I have been seeing them all over the place for sometime now, and every time I pause what I am doing and give thanks. I am thankful that I am becoming more aware that we exist not only in the physical dimension and that there is something so much more powerful, loving and eternal going on.

I am grateful that the walls between worlds are thinning and the presence of spirit and the love of the universe is shining through. When I see those repeating numbers I am reminded that I am not alone – that we are not alone. And while we might be living a midst craziness and upheaval we are totally supported and watched over.

Ahhh we can all breathe a sigh of relief and know that it really is okay – even if it might not always seem like it is.

What repeating numbers do you see? And what does it mean for you?

Has anybody been through a period of upheaval recently?

2015, lunar eclipse, energies, shift, help, how to, 444, 222, 11:11We moved house last week which was a big period of change, like it is for anyone, but as go the energies of this year – it didn’t pan out as planned…

As soon as we moved we were informed our new rental might not be the long term place we’d originally thought it to be, and in fact that we might have to move again.

Interestingly though it’s not just me who’s been experiencing periods of great change and upheaval. For many of us 2015 has become the year of surprises. Astrologers have been talking about intense energies that have been at play for a while, but which (thankfully) are meant to be turning and shifting, closing down the tumultuous pulse, and spiraling into a new phase tonight, with the lunar eclipse.

But what feels like the only constant in the past few crazy months, has become the lesson of acceptance. I asked a little while ago (not to anyone in particular, but more to the universe and my soul) to understand acceptance – total ultimate, unconditional acceptance – and ever since then everything has become a surprise. I try to plan (yeah I know – plan and god laughs…) and as soon as I believe everything is going one way I end up being surprised at every turn. And it’s as though the only thing I can plan for is knowing that everything will change.

So having just moved into our new house we’ve spent the past few days looking at houses… But I’m getting better at it, not at looking at houses, but better at acceptance. It’s all okay. I’m learning. And I’ve realised that my ego still loves to rise up and latch onto future events and it seems every time I do that events don’t turn out how I’ve thought they were going to. I’m and many of us, are being taught that we can’t keep allowing our ego to drive the ship. It’s time to retire the old gal.

And I keep hearing the taoist allegory about the farmer and his son, going round and round in my head. Hmm are they trying to tell me something? Ya think….

Here is the story for you too, because maybe you are right here reading this post because you are being guided to learn something helpful for your own life.

The story is about old farmer who had worked his crops for many years.

One day his horse ran away. Upon hearing the news, his neighbours came to visit. “Such bad luck,” they said sympathetically.

“May be,” the farmer replied.

The next morning the horse returned, bringing with it three other wild horses. “How wonderful,” the neighbours exclaimed.

“May be,” replied the old man.

The following day, his son tried to ride one of the untamed horses, was thrown, and broke his leg. The neighbours again came to offer their sympathy on his misfortune.

“May be,” answered the farmer.

The day after, military officials came to the village to draft young men into the army. Seeing that the son’s leg was broken, they passed him by. The neighbours congratulated the farmer on how well things had turned out.

“May be,” said the farmer.

I, like many people, am being reminded that everything is the same -and that’s okay. Nothing is good nor bad, and as soon as we judge it to be either one we can be sure our ego is at play. And we just can’t get away with ego-living anymore – especially when we’ve declared we want to help and evolve, be a light worker or a healer, or therapist, or a kind person. Whatever direction we are taking it’s time for the soul to be our guiding force. Living any other way will no longer be smooth, enjoyable or even do-able.

It’s time for the ultimate shift. ego, eckhart tolle, how to, power of now, acceptance, learn, 2015, life, energy, psychic

I can see how much I’d labelled the new house as ‘good’. ‘Great’ in fact. To the point that I couldn’t wait to move and I was living within my mind, very much in the future. In a future place that was deemed better than my current place – my current moment.

In conclusion, the lesson I am learning big time for 2015 is acceptance of what is. Radical, limitless acceptance of everyone and everything and every moment as it is. No judgement, no ego-driven future filled with better times to look forward to. Just now, just as it is. Reality.

Do you catch yourself thinking about how everything will be good soon? Or how you will be happy, successful, or have more time in the future?

Can you recognise when your ego-mind is at play?

Wisdom to stop those Sugary-Binges

acceptance, love, binge eating, weightloss, how to lose weight, best, how toRecently I’ve been on a binge of sweet treats. The bait is chocolate, choc-chip cookies, cake….well basically if it has sugar and cocoa in it I’m hooked.

I’ve experienced an interesting although not uncommon journey with sweet foods and food in general. Years ago I placed a great deal of emphasis on body image. I wanted above all to be skinny so I deprived myself of so many different kinds of foods. I remember sprouting on and on about how much I hated butter, which was never actually true but it seemed to get me attention (which I liked…even though I pretended I didn’t) and get me out of eating anything with butter in it, which (god forbid) might be fattening…

Healing and therapy work helped me to gain a deeper understanding about myself and the universe, and through further discovery I’ve mostly healed this part of myself. Through this healing and acceptance, I’ve been able to eat without feeling guilty afterwards, and choose what I actually want to eat and not just what would have the least calories or be easiest to burn off. I’ve actually discovered how to love my gorgeous body, tummy, thighs and all! However from time to time I’d find myself binge eating. And not just binge eating anything, I’d developed a strong inclination toward sweet foods.

A year or so ago another shift occurred amidst a chocolatey-binge session. I was knee deep in a block of Whittaker’s chocolate when I started to honestly question what was really going on. A part of me told myself that it was harmless and okay, however there was another part of me that was still curious as to why I was fairly balanced with my eating habits, except for the odd occasion in which I’d uncontrollably fly off the handle and wind up acting like a choc-crack addict needing hit after hit after hit.

I reflected on myself and my habits for sometime however I didn’t feel as though I was having any blinding ah-har moments. But I kept at it, sitting in gentle curiousity of myself without allowing in any guilt or critical thoughts. I was set on understanding myself with compassion and acceptance. And it was through this gentle and kind enquiry that I learned something new. I was lead to go deeper into meditation and consult my higher wisdom for the insight I desired.

Deep breathing and meditation helped me to get past the pesky thoughts which were popping up and crowding my mind, and I used visualisation to set off on a journey to a meeting place. At that time I was working with my meeting place being in a beautiful garden sitting under a tree. I waited there in my mind and called in a Being or Guide to help me with this issue.

I felt a shudder rush up my spine and then straight back down again, then goose bumps formed down my right leg. I felt the angel Archangel Michael whom I work with a lot, come to me and so I mentally said hello. Hello dear child I heard back. I thanked Archangel Michael for coming then I began to ask him questions about my eating habits.

Why do I continually have bouts of binge eating chocolates and sweets which I can’t seem to control? What do I get from eating sweet food?

Almost immediately I received a profound and insightful response.

You tell yourself you love you through sweet foods.

I knew exactly what he was talking about. All the years of punishing myself and telling myself I was worthless through depriving myself of foods, now I was playing out a misguided paradox.

It also made sense why these urges would come and go. I could see why sometimes it was relatively easy to be mostly sugar-free but then why I would have periods where I would crack and eat chocolates everyday for a few days or even a week. It was these times I needed love.

When I felt the strongest urges for a binge on sweet foods these were the times I needed to pause and accept and love myself. So conversely when I needed to hear I love you and I wasn’t giving that to myself I would turn to the sweet stuff.

I thanked Archangel Michael and felt I knew what I had to do. Anytime I craved sweet foods I could know that what I really needed was love and work to give that to myself.

So as I go through this phase once more I have remembered the understanding I gained about myself and my needs. I need some self love. When I pause and focus on what I really need it seems clear that through the last week or so I have felt uncomfortable and have been feeling a lot of pressure as my partner and I move house. It is times of change or upheival that I (and most of us) extra self-love is required.

Already I feel the cravings dissipate and a deeper more sturdy warmth holding me instead. I will encourage more self-love through some deep breathing, a good selfie-hug and a meditation to connect back into my soul love energy within -which is sweeter than any chocolate every could be 🙂

Do you have habits which you feel as though you can’t control? What could they be telling you?
