There are no shortcuts




Years ago, after working closely with a spiritual teacher, our time together was coming to an end.

This teacher had supported me through one of the worst times in my life, whilst helping me find my voice. No easy task.

I had been in awe of him, never met anyone like him before. He prepared me for his departure months before he left.

Then I learned an important life lesson. Just because I had spent time with someone who had done the work, did not mean I had.

If you meet and spend time with someone who has a higher level of awareness than you, they will:

– likely trigger you
– see your blind spots
– support you while you work and develop yourself
– share their wisdom and knowledge if your intentions are sincere
– encourage and be a cheerleader if you are aligned to a higher vision 
– share their gifts if you are serious

They will stay until they are not needed. This can be because your capacity for growth is limited or because you’ve made poor decisions. Sometimes you have to take the next part of the road alone.

You will not be allowed to hang around and take up space.

Harsh but true.

After this teacher’s departure,  I went into situations that challenged me, faced intense heat, whilst staying committed to what he helped me find, my voice.

I have been fortunate to meet others who use their voice.

I have met others who are not using their voice, not an authentic one anyway.

Or some who have gone so far but don’t want to continue.

These people want to stay close. Just like I did. Believing that by being around someone who is digging deep, they are too.

Creativity and living creatively (my view of true spirituality) is not static, it is always moving.

You cannot cling, grasp or hold on to someone who is moving.

You can join them and move too.

You cannot stand still and expect to stay.

That is bypassing and eventually you will be found out.

Years ago, I wanted to stay without doing the work. I wanted the fruit without the labour.

As we enter 2020 a recurring theme has come up in my classes and coaching conversations....

Listening to and using your voice.

Two conversations made me reflect as 2019 came to a close.

The first, a lady who is healing from a mental health diagnosis. She had a bad experienced going to a one day workshop where the popular coach claimed you could heal in a day.

Throughout the day, there were red flags. Her voice said no.

The second conversation was with a lady who spent many years in an unethical relationship with her therapist who mis-used his power. The flags appeared early on, however, it was many years before she was able to listen to this voice and use it to say no more.

In October, when I spoke at The Body and Soul Fayre, I was asked by someone looking to heal, what books they should read or what teachers they should listen to.

I told him, as much as I would love to advise, I was unable to do so. You see, every book or teacher has been placed on my path at the right time, to help ME move forward.

Every book or teacher will be placed on your path to as you look to go deeper and heal. You can listen to recommendations, however, only you will know if is right or not.

In the conversations mentioned above, there are clearly some individuals who claim to be healers who are misinformed or not acting ethically. How do you know who to listen to?

The red flags. The ladies above were both aware of the red flags. The feeling something wasn't right. Their voice. The first lady trusted her intuition instantly, the second got there eventually.

From listening to some astrologers who I respect, we have some big transitions in 2020. I will continue to use my voice to heal and I will share more on this page and my blog to help you do the same. 💛

Happy New Year
