The past few weeks have been very still indeed and it has been as if we have entered a time of deep, quantum shifts and internal rearrangement. It has been a welcome break in a sense after the hectic changes many of us have been dealing with this year, but it may have left some wondering just whether their lives were going anywhere significant, and perhaps elicited more of 'what's the point?' thinking. If ever we find ourselves in this question, it is time to hit the pause button and go within, for it is there that we will re-establish and re-define the meaning in our existence.
I also find myself in that space from time to time, and I then take the opportunity to do exactly what I recommend to others. I reflect, ask the inner questions and am always guided back to the solid ground at the core of my being - the Divine Self who knows what, why and how.
The energies of the past few weeks have been perfect for the From Fragmentation to Wholeness teleseries which is now available for download (last session being recorded and uploaded this evening!). These processes have taken us on a deep journey of discovery, healing and re-integration of more our Sacred embodiment. It has been a delight to witness the shifts and changes in not only myself, but those who particpated in the live classes and recordings.
Over this time, I have found myself doing a lot of reading, particularly the works of Elisabeth Haich, who is one I would call a 20th century mystic and spiritual teacher - her work carries a definite resonance of truth. Her words have also taken me into more of the spiritual and mystical truths of the diamond SELF, the God within us. I found myself resonating with a knowing beyond doubt, of the deeper reasons for the emergence of the diamond in our consciousness at this time. I intend to write more about this in between my book updates over the next few weeks.
In my ponderings, I have also penned a new article that I hope will give you some more fuel for inner reflection. "Happiness or Peace?" is up on my blog for you to read. It seems to have already pushed a couple of buttons, as one of the issues leading from this article is that of authenticity.
There is a lot 'out there' about being authentic, some valid, some a shallow understanding of what this means. It is another one of those inner questions (and inner quests), that forces us to look at areas in our life where we are not being authentic. Inner peace, happiness and authenticity can only be found when we have dismantled the barriers and beliefs that our personality and ego have put in place over many lifetimes. In addition, we have the distortions of spiritual truths that have created new beliefs which may be getting in the way of our experiencing our authentic self.
One thing is for sure, when we begin to access our authentic core, we cannot not listen to the voice that emerges. We cannot be in untruth, we cannot use tactics of persuasion, influence or manipulation as this disregards others free will. We have to speak that truth from the love of our authentic God Self when prompted or we end up with an inner conflict or discomfort. The closer we come to our authentic beingness, the more discomfort we feel when we are out of alignment with it.
It is only through deep and honest reflection that we will begin to uncover the conflicts within that lie between false beliefs and our true, authentic self. Where do we fool ourselves into thinking we are being authentic, yet deny our real motivations in doing certain things? Where are we still giving power away? Where do we still externalise our spiritual communication and defer to ________(enter name of guide, ascended master, lightbeing etc)? Where and why do we still find it difficult to be honest with both ourselves and others? Where do we tell others what we think they want to hear rather than being lovingly honest with them?
Some of my greatest wake up calls and life adjustments have come about as a result of people being totally honest with me and not pussy-footing about the relevant issues.
More and more, I am finding that I cannot quieten the authentic voice that is arising from within. Just yesterday, as I was preparing my inner space in order to facilitate an alignment, I experienced a profound awakening deep within my belly. I saw the head of Lion and it was bellowing forth, roaring from within me. The Lion is the symbol of fire, of the sun and of the real power Divine Child - which is anything but childlike! It is the fiery face of the divine that stirs the global/cosmic heart in order to bridge the mind and heart.
I had to wait for a few minutes until the Lion stopped roaring before I could communicate with this aspect of my essence and then was able to proceed with my work!
I may astrologically be a Lion/Leo, but this is a force that resides in every one of us, and it's roar is emerging in response to the dire needs of society and the world. What does your inner Lion have to say to you? How and where can you begin to live more authentically? What strengths does your inner Lion call forth from within you?
For this time, I leave you with a final thought. I cannot promise you riches, infinite abundance, instant enlightenment or anything else you might like me to guarantee you. What I do promise you on the diamond journey is a discovery of the truth of your own Divine nature. It is a quest that all human beings are on, whether they are currently awake to it or not. (And I'll probably ask some provoking questions along the way just to help the process along!)
I hope you will join us for the next global 'diamond' gathering on 23 August, and until then may you become ever more aware and present within the peaceful place at the heart of your diamond.
With love and thanks to you always....
1. We have a new global online get-together scheduled for 23 August, "Aligning with the New Planetary Human". It's another energetic alignment day we can use to our full advantage! To sign up and read more about it, click here. Please join us!
2. Magic of Colour Workshop on 7/8 September. This will be the only Colour workshop I will be facilitating this year, so if it is one of those you have been thinking about, don't miss this opportunity. The shifts you can experience through conscious use of colour are amazing!
3. Antaneea Technique 27-30 September. There's so much that can be said about this supportive process, and most attendees admit that their experiences of it are 'beyond words'. It is a beautiful treatment that is equally exquisite to both give and receive. Follow the link to find out more (last workshop for this year)
4. A Sacred Journey from Grief to Joy 27-28 October. I am thrilled to be co-facilitating this workshop with Patricia Angove, who is well known to many for her 'Footprints of the Soul' and 'Living the Lemurian Way' workshops. This workshop will be a deeply personal and supported journey of the soul, bringing healing, regeneration and joy! Workshop detail here (You can find out more about Pat and enrol for her Dragon's Talk newsletter here)

An interesting docu-movie worth watching as it examines the intrinsic and extrinsic factors that influence our ability to feel and be happy (or not!). At only $2.99 to watch online, it really is worth it & this is the movie mentioned in my recent article, Happiness or Peace?
This is a really interesting series of articles about the emotional 'hooks' used in the opening sequences of the now well known movie The Secret. If you have studied the unconscious mind and the tricks that are used in commercial advertising, this will make sense for you. This is a very interesting look at what has spawned a multi-million $ industry.
This delightful short video introduces you to some of the beautiful and very ancient pictographic languages out of Africa, many of which predate modern languages. Some of the meanings attributed to the various symbols communicate concepts rather than words and give us some idea of how limiting our modern language can be, as well as understanding the language of symbology.
I've been following Zen Gardner's writings for a number of years now & his clarity of writing is great. There is much in this article to ponder, especially if you have been feeling into the current stillness and wondering just how things are set to play out.
