A Question of Awakening.

I hide from it no more poem-spiritual-awakening-death-reborn-life-healing, self healing, blog, love
as I gather up the trash laid bare before me,
buried in the rubble of my old bones.

Hugging, holding, loving,
finally accepting and seeing truth
as all dissolves in the light of one passing,
and all I thought to be real
exists no longer, and through love
a new reality emerges.

New yet ancient,
and all my fears existed not.
If only I’d known to flip the coin
and behold the other side
as truth
but that was further than my reach,
as the voices of masses grew loud
and years ticked by like the second hand on a big round clock.

Alive dead reborn, alive dead born
it was all the same as misery
entrenched us.
The decision to awaken always there
as we flailed in the dark
not knowing how or why
or even that a light switch was so near.

Inspiration for Creatures of Habit

We are creatures of habit. We think somewhere between 60,000 to 70,000 thoughts in one day, and 90% of those thoughts are exactly the same ones we had the day before. 

A quote from the most informative, powerful and inspirational book I’ve read in a long time; You Are The Palcebo by the incredible Dr Joe Dispenza. I’ll continue with the next paragraph in the book which is transformational and insightful in itself to read all the way through – even though you may feel you know where it is leading…

We get up on the same side of the bed, go through the same routine in the bathroom, comb our hair in the same way, sit in the same chair as we eat the same breakfast and hold our mug in the same hand, drive the same route to the same job, and do the same things we know how to do so well with the same people (who push the same emotional buttons) every day. And then we hurry up and go home so that we can hurry up and check our email so that we can hurry up and eat dinner so that we can hurry up and watch our favourite tv shows so that we can hurry up and brush our teeth in the same bedtime routine so that we can hurry up and go to bed at the same time so that we can hurry up and do it all over again the next day. 

Thinking the same thoughts leads us to make the same choices. Making the same choices leads us to demonstrate the same behaviours. Demonstrating the same behaviours leads us to create the same experiences. Creating the same experiences leads us to produce the same emotions.

We do this all whilst secretly hoping our lives will change. 

carl jung quote, hypnotherapy, past lives, past life, hypnosis, wellington

Awareness is the first step. Recognise how on autopilot you are. Ask yourself; what would it take to do one thing in a different way to how I did it yesterday? Whether it be an action, behaviour or thought.

And remember it’s not just you, it’s all of us. We’re all somewhat or mostly on repeat from our previous day, and then feel unfulfilled and frustrated with life. But it’s up to each of us to hear our internal cries and respond. Your Soul is yearning to be heard and connected in with.

She wants change. She wants connection. She wants love.

It’s time for change, and in knowing that we want something different and better for ourselves, it’s important to recognise that it’s only us who can create that change for ourselves. We can be inspired by others however to change our thoughts and our lives has to come from us internally.

Make today different from yesterday. Wake up and create life instead of repeating old re-runs, which were mostly unsatisfying the first time anyway.

Wishing you all an inspirational day of connection, love and life!

The Light Lives On – but it’s not out there.

rob-gonsalves-amazing-artwork-self-realization-healing-love-wake-up-awakening-source-despairI felt a great sense of relief today when I remembered that the answers I seek are not out there. And it only takes an instant, a moment of holy realisation to drop the search and shift the focus.

No amount of perseverance, no job, no special love, no war won, no goal reached will bring me the feelings that I seek. Because what I seek doesn’t live out there. Out there is the mirror for which I can grasp at and reach to all I like, but I cannot bring it nearer.

I must stop clutching at hollow reflections and start sinking back into their source. And that source is me. It’s all of us, yet we cannot do it for another. We must do it for ourselves.

We must cease to judge and silence our condemnations, and turn ourselves around instead, all of the way, until all that we see are ourselves.

To deeply see ourselves are where the riches lie. But they don’t appear as riches as we might have hoped. For all we seek is hidden under a veil of pain, anguish and despair. But it is there. And it is worth it. Do not be fooled by the layering upon layering of mud, each one serving only to distract us, urging us to glare outwardly once more.

Do not be so easily perturbed and tricked into outward expression of inner pain. Sink deeper, well below the smokescreen we’ve built to hide what we’ve forgotten was ever there at all.

Sink deeper friend and so shall I. And if one of us forgets and peers outward for a moment, remind me kindly, for that which I seek is for me to find and always within reach.

For it never really left and lives patiently within.

The Gift Awaits Us.

emotional-health_emotional-healing_letting-go-heal-your-life-hypnotherapy-reiki-wellington-reiki-meditation-poem, poetry,

The gifts the Earth parades for us,

fall silently far from sight.

All that ails, she’s there to cure,

as she begs to ease the minds of many.

Yet we push and pull and complain away,

and miss the show, the majestic dance,

of wind and rain and water spirits,

each beckoning our pain away.

The over identified persona we use

to push away the hearts of those,

we declare too different to us.

And there we sit hidden within

the walls that confine and limit our mind,

preventing us from ever truly,

meeting ourselves.

How to Lucid Dream – let’s begin.

Recently the term ‘lucid dreaming’ has repeatedly entered my awareness from different sources, and in case you don’t know what that is I’ll briefly explain.

Lucid dreaming simply means becoming aware you are dreaming, whilst you are asleep. It’s bringing your conscious awareness into your sleeping state, and melding the two so you can start to actively participate in, and directly create and control your dreams.

how-to-lucid-dream-what-is-lucid-dreaming-lucid-dream-guide-help-meaning

I’ve had spontaneous experiences of lucid dreaming throughout my life, and they’ve all been really cool. And these days, even though I haven’t had a lucid dreaming experience for some time, if I’m trying to run in a dream some kind of awareness kicks in and I’ll run super fast, or I’ll even fly.

However I’ve only had a handful of times where I’ve felt without a doubt that I’m asleep and dreaming, and can do anything I want. This hasn’t happened for a while now, but I’m going to teach myself (and you if you’re keen) how to do it.

From my initial research I’ve learnt a few pointers to instigate an initial lucid dreaming experience, and this is for anyone whether you’ve done it before or are a complete beginner.

  1. Get a journal and a pen and keep it by your bed. You’ll need to write down your dreams first thing in the morning. It’s important to start this process even if you can only remember one or two random details from your dreams. Usually by doing this just once, then the following morning you’ll remember more details from the previous night, and even more the morning after that.
  2. Create what they call an ‘incubator dream’. It’s a planned dream experience, so you might daydream and choose what your dream will be, then work with this same dream experience and really connect into it as you’re drifting off to sleep. Also, if you wake up during the night, then take yourself into your planned dream – which is referred to as incubating your dream.

There are many more steps and processes you can do to start the process of encouraging your first lucid dreaming experience, but these two are the most important and effective so I thought I’d just start there. Gotta make it manageable for us.

I’ve already got a journal, so I’m going to ensure it’s right by my bed when I go to sleep tonight and that there’s a pen already slotted into it, on a blank page.

I’ve never done the incubator dream tactic, so I’m really keen to give this a go. What I’ve how-to-lucid-dream-what-is-lucid-dreaming-lucid-dream-guide-help-meaningcome up with today is a mental picture of an enchanted forest. In it I’m standing on a grassy clearing with trees around me forming a circle. There is an old willow tree directly in front of me with a door. Through the door is a little house embedded into the tree. I want to have a dream of that forest and enter the tree house, inside is the space where I can sit down with guides, spirits or beings.

Yes, I might be setting my sites high with my incubator dream, but what they hey!

Why do I want to learn to lucid dream, you might be asking? 

I’ve always loved the idea of connecting into my soul, angels and loving beings while sleeping, and it’s proved an easier space as our conscious chatty mind is already out of the way. So often I’ll go to bed with a question on my mind and I’ll ask it to the universe then fall asleep, and the question will be answered either in my dreams or I’ll wake the next morning knowing the answer. This has been extremely helpful when I’ve been stressed, worried and stuck in my life.

However with lucid dreaming, I’ve heard you can take this much further. You can create experiences in your dreams to expand your mind, learn and discover more about how we create our lives, you can call in divine beings and have in depth discussions with them, travel anywhere you want and more, receive deep healings, travel into past lives, and much more.

I want to use that space to explore healing (for myself and others), as well as developing an awareness of my subconscious beliefs and structures, and then learn how to change them during the dream. I’d also love to experience more about dream therapy, and the possibility of helping people work with their dream space for their own healing. As well as using the dream space to connect into angels, guides, and ascended masters for guidance and wisdom.

Do you want to learn to lucid dream with me?

What would your incubator dream be?

And the last tip before I go off to prepare is to repeat the mantra to yourself as you’re going to sleep; I will lucid dream tonight, or I’m going to lucid dream tonight. You can also ask for help to lucid dream from your Soul and divine guidance.

Have fun happy dreamers!

Why Are We Here?

Has the question ever crossed your mind?

It crosses my mind all the time, and I often wonder how we can go about our day as though everything normal when this question is still unanswered.

What’s the point if we don’t know what the point is?

How can we get up each day and go to work, pay the bills, be a good person and for what? I can’t think about it too hard otherwise my head hurts and I’m left feeling down.

And don’t get me wrong, I’ve thought I’ve found my purpose before, but as the years progress and hopefully so too does my wisdom, life purpose can sometimes get mixed up between something we do while we’re here that makes us feel good and helps people….

Compared with the real question; why the hell are we all here? Not individually, but collectively. I’m not talking about each person’s perceived mission, I’m talking about why billions of us are milling around picking fights with each other and pretending we’ve got it all worked out, when we actually don’t have a bloody clue.

Some people think their purpose is to have children. And I can see how they’ve reached that conclusion. I think that one is about love. We like to think we’ve experienced love but many people haven’t at all. And certainly not unconditional love. So we think having children will invite an experience of greater love into our lives – which surely will bring feelings of fulfillment and YES our life purpose!

But do we really think we’re all here to just create more of ourselves, experience some kind of love, and then just roll the question down to the next generation? That feels a little on repeat for my liking.

But the answer that I’ve stumbled upon in recent years – which so far in my journey, is the only answer which makes any bloody sense to me however mind bending it is; is that we’re not really here.

I know I know, crazy right?

But a while back I had a dream that was so vivid, I was left feeling embarrassed for myself because of it. Although I know feeling embarrassed for myself wasn’t the purpose of the dream, the real purpose I think, was enlightenment.

life purpose, what is the meaning of life, help, healing, spiritual, awakening

I was laying on my bed asleep, dreaming I was having a fight with someone. I remember feeling so angry at them, as they had been so mean to me. I felt the anger ripping right through my body and I could barely contain it as I thought about what they’d said, and how they’d treated me.

As the dream progressed (in which I wasn’t aware I was dreaming) I met up with some friends and talked to them about the mean person. They too became upset for me and agreed the person had been horrible. We joined forces and heatedly barrelled on about how nice I am and questioning, how could someone possibly be so mean to me? 

I felt justified in my anger. 

Then my perspective panned outward, like in a movie where it was zoomed in and then the camera starts moving backwards further and further. I shifted from being in the dream to looking down on myself laying asleep on the bed.

I saw myself sleeping and no doubt, still dreaming. And then, I saw tall beings all around the bed, looking down on me as I slept, in a loving and caring manner. The perspective continued to pan backward, until I caught a glimpse of the whole world.

I saw the universe and in it, I was the only one asleep. 

There were other beings but they were all awake and they were tending to me – the single, solitary sleeper. I realised that I’d been imagining all of the people in the dream scenario.

I’d made up the mean person and then persisted on being angry at them, even going as far as talking about them behind their back and I’d joined forces with other imaginary people to band together in our hate… But it was all me. Just me. I was the only one asleep, and I’d made it all up. 

And these days, that’s all I really know for sure, that there’s a possibility the same scenario is playing out here. I know our lives feel real and hurt sometimes, and even horrific things happen, but they also do in dreams too. And they feel very real until we ‘wake up’. But I tell you, I’m quite keen to wake up again and that time, let it be for real.

With love from one sleepy being,

Sharon

Repeating Numbers Guide; 222, 333 & 444

Like many of you, I’ve been seeing repeating numbers for a while now and often it’s a mixture of the same number sequences of 222, 333 and 444.

However recently I’ve started seeing 555 and even 777 which has peaked my interest to investigate further.

repeating numbers, what do repeating numbers mean, 222, 333, 444, 11:11, 111, meanings, spirit, spiritual, doreen virtue, angels, spirit guides, archangel michael

In my search I’ve come across an Angel Intuitive named Kyle Gray, who wrote an article on seeing repeating numbers, it was a fairly in depth review and as I read it the words bounced off the page like music to my ears. I’d like to relay some of the best bits for you here…

Firstly he confirms what most of us here already know, that these numbers are no coincidence and that they’re signs; a communication tool between the spirit realm and us.

Gray explains that when we see 11:11 or 111 repeating it’s our call directly from the Divine; “it’s a call from the source of creation, the depths of our soul, the angels and the universe itself to lift up our energy, raise our vibration and step into the light to become a guide, leader and teacher to the world.”

Repeating numbers 222 or 2:22:

The repeating number sequence of 222 is a sign that you are heading in the right direction, and that your recent actions and interests are part of your highest path.

It also urges us to start to realise what you really are, and to acknowledge that you are a lightworker, and that you light up a room, having a positive impact on those around you.

When you are seeing the repeating number of 222, it also means you are yet to fully realise this about yourself. It’s not arrogant to recognise you have a positive impact on others, and have the potential to spread love in this world. It’s time for you to see yourself as you really are.

In Gray’s article he urges us to question; “How are your actions, deeds, intentions and words positively affecting all those around you? Turn on that light and shine bright.” Meaning it is time to give ourselves permission to shine, and be a beacon of light and love for others.

Repeating numbers 333 or 3:33:

333 or any derivation of that is seen to be linked with ascended masters and great leaders and teachers, and Gray states that when we see these repeating numbers we are being shown that we are stepping into our true role and becoming that leader. It’s okay if you don’t feel like you are this person, you’ll keep seeing the signs until slowly the realisation occurs and you can fully accept who you are – and who you are becoming.

If you’re seeing 333 repeating then you are a leader and way-shower for others. Be bold and dig deep to the source of your courage, there will be much reward and fulfillment for you on this path.

Repeating numbers 444 or 4:44:

You’ve probably heard of Doreen Virtue, as she’s a leader and pioneer in educating people about angels and guiding them on how to invite angels into your life. If you’re seeing 444 or 4:44 then you’re probably already starting to work with angels, and these numbers are confirmation that they’re near by. They’re encouraging you to continue reaching out to them, and to find even more ways to work with them.

We can’t call on our angels enough, and they’re always nearby waiting for your call. Invite them into your life everyday, giving them permission to guide you and intervene where needed. I start everyday with an invocation to the angels, inviting them into my day in every way. I also call on them at different times during the day to help clear a room or heavy energy, or to cut cords between me and other people.

A Soul’s Call

My Ego paints a future that’s bright,

while hastily ushering me away,

from a past it swears was very bleak. acim, healing, meditation, spiritual development, personal development, self improvement, growth, spirit,The pattern lures me in,

and I sleepily follow it’s lead.

Yet quiet whispers from a gentle spirit,

remains to send the call.

Left behind so many times before,

yet continuing Her gracious wait,

forever in the quiet.

And when I finally reach for Her,

She’ll be softly,

deep within.

 

With love,

Sharon

 

I see faces…

Have you ever been laying in bed, gently drifting into that in between awake and asleep space, you know what I’m talking about. But then started to see faces appearing to you clear as day? Third eye chakra, psychic development, increase abilities, intuition, reading, help, activate, awakening, how to

If you haven’t, then you’ll probably be wondering what the hell I’m on about. But bear with me, because some people start experiencing them after they find out about them!

What am I talking about?

Your eyes are closed, and you’re relaxed and sleepy, and you begin to see in your mind’s eye, the outlines of faces with such clarity and detail, it’s as if your eyes were open. For most people it’s faces of people you don’t know, and often they change, and you’ll see many faces.

This started happening to me a couple of years ago, and I didn’t know what it was. I felt I had control over it, and could even move the faces closer or to the side to get a different view.

What does it mean for you?

If you know what I’m talking about then you’ve been experiencing a big awakening of your Third Eye Chakra and your spiritual sight. The Third Eye energy centre holds your ability to ‘see’ the spiritual realm, and to see events that are in the future, as well as gain deeper spiritual awareness about yourself and others. Third eye activation, chakra, healing, help, how to, awakening, psychic, see faces

Whenever I experience seeing the faces, even before I knew what was happening, I always felt calm. I enjoyed these visions, and was deeply fascinated by what was occurring. And the more I tuned in about what was going on, the more active my Third Eye became.

Are there benefits?

There are many benefits to your life expeirence, gained by opening and activating your Third Eye. The chakra centre is often referred to as your spiritual centre, and the more you activate it and work with it, then the more you’ll gain higher awareness about your life, relationships, and even past lives. The more you’ll just ‘know’ things before people have told you, and you’ll more easily be able to view your life from the bigger picture perspective.

This energy centre is located in the middle of your forehead, but a little closer down to your eyebrows, and when you focus on it sometimes you’ll even be able to feel it physically twitching, moving or heating up.

Since I’ve started consciously working with my Third Eye my spiritual and psychic abilities have increased dramatically. I’m guided to work with my Third Eye in different ways (and more of that will be in another post) but often see different shapes, such as pyramids and circles, which are intended to sit on my Third Eye and they help it to awaken, develop and advance.

Have you ever seen the faces? 

With love and expansive curiousity,

Sharon

 

 

Friday Night Revelations

I had the weirdest experience last night in the fish and chip shop, (or fush and chup shop as my fellow Kiwi’s would say), I don’t know if you can relate to  it or not.

amazing flower, spiritual awakening, wake up, learn, wisdom, blog, life

I’d paid for my order and was clutching my little ticket with it’s winning number. I stood off to the side and was watching the ready orders being handed over the counter. I looked over to the line of people waiting to place their orders, and in an instant it was like I was seeing the entire scene from a different perspective.

Each person standing in the line looked so goofy and awkward, their eyes darting around, desperately craving to steal a look at the other people in the shop. Yet equally, or potentially moreso, desperately avoiding eye contact with their fellow humans.

We all looked so hilarious. Going about our business, strapping odd shaped pieces of coloured material over our bodies, so as to reveal a little but not too much skin. We were all so curious about each other, yet avoiding anything that would cause us to engage. amazing photo, flower, spiritual awakening, how to, life, understanding, love, blog, insight, meditation

I felt an out pouring of love for all of us awkward, lumpy human beings going about our business.

I wondered how we missed our cuteness for the majority of the time. We bumble along with our heads down, missing it.

We’re shut down and closed off from each other because we hide what we don’t want others to see or know about us. Yet we’re all the same.

We’re all a mixture of nerves, self-doubt, occasional happiness, fear of rejection, desire for success, swirling loneliness, sickness, fear, hopes, dreams, attempts for love. But we hide this from each other.

We hide our true selves in an attempt to be accepted and validated by each other, yet if only we opened up a little and let go of our need to hide ourselves, then we’d realise just how similar we all really are. 

It’s in the realisation of sameness that’d we’d get to breathe out a combined sigh of relief.

That’s when we’d all get to laugh at the insanity of our pretending, and we’d finally get to know what it’s like to truly be accepted and to fit in.

Within ourselves.

amazing photo, spiritual awakening, angels, spirit guide, how to, life, love, blog, healing

When we hide what’s going on inside of us, we’re telling ourselves that what we’re feeling, thinking and experiencing isn’t acceptable. We make up a version that we think is more acceptable and we express that to the world. Then we wonder why we’re always left feeling lonely.

I decided there and then to reel in the character I’d had on show for others, and let myself know that I’m okay exactly as I am. We all are. In all of our awkwardness and uncertainly, we’re doing just fine.

It’s okay to laugh at ourselves and to let it be known that we’re all just bumbling along, trying to make the best of things and work out how the hell we can experience a little more joy and a little less stress. love, relationships, spiritual awakening, personal development, blog, life, love

With love from one gloriously awkward creature, to another.
