Don’t wait for that ‘Wake Up’ call!

Don’t wait for that ‘Wake Up’ call!

Today, I had one of those light bulb moments and was stopped in my tracks, to find myself re-evaluating life once again, looking in from the outside.  I saw myself looking though the lens of the soul.  I crossed paths with an incredible young lady, who reminded me of God’s special gift  LIFE!!  At the mere age’s of 17 and 19 we were both delivered life changing experiences that left us with severe head injuries, internal bleeding, amongst other injuries, leaving us both fighting for our lives in intensive care under different circumstances.  I was left with the after effects of a Stroke and paralysed on the right side of my body down, couldn’t speak without slurring, sounding like I was drunk and reverted back to the emotional age of a child again. This lady, a courageous soul was paralysed from the neck down and left for dead after being raped and flung from a 75 ft cliff.  Her mission now is to help others wake up to the Gift they’ve been given.  I was so struck by her story, it brought me to tears knowing that I had had such a life changing experience myself and yet in my early 30’s I allowed myself to forget who I really was at my core and the spirit of life,  lost in life’s struggles, my stories and drama, before being hit by another boulder at the age of 34 to start shaking me out of my deluded bubble. And life always finds a way of doing this, usually when we continue to ignore the inner nudges from our own intuition that are telling us something is out of alignment in our lives and we need to course correct, e.g. we feel stuck and suppressed in a relationship that is not bringing out the best in us, or in a job which we hate or we are experiencing extreme stress in our business. Life usually finds a way to wake us up. Usually in the form of a symptom or illness. Stress in our life is the biggest cause of illness, so any imbalances in our life shows up in the form of stress or fear and when allowed to become too intense moves to the body.  Your body is mirror reflection of what is going on in your conscious and unconscious mind, so any intense stress or fear can manifest in the form of a symptom or dis-ease in the body – the Wake Up call!!!   From my own experience, research, and the incredible people I have interviewed, in my work there is much room for this conversation. I do believe that we can heal our bodies from so much with faith, belief, the right tools and mindset.  Most of all by opening up to loving ourselves unconditionally and allowing ourselves to just be who we really are.  Listening to what our body wants to tell us, tuning into this intuitively.  We know ourselves and our bodies better than anyone and can do so much to bring ourselves back into wholeness.  I could say so much about this and will in another article. God delivers his miracles and gifts in so many ways and we were given ours – a wake up call and another LIFE!!   God, Universe, Higher Self call it what you will, its all the same thing.  For anyone having suffered severe trauma which has had a profound effect on your life psychologically, emotionally or physically, it shakes you up, helping you realise that you shouldn’t sweat the small stuff! And it’s all small stuff, (even if you...

Cultivating your feminine power for optimum success

Cultivating your feminine power for optimum success

Cultivate your feminine power (this also relates to men, this is not a sexist thing we all have both the feminine and masculine  energies), harnessing the feminine energy – our intuition, creativity and inspiration creates a stream of abundance … All is now possible only if you step out of those big comfy slippers and into the unknown! Bust through your blocks and OUT OF THE COMFORT ZONE! Taste the exotic fruits lining up at your door!  Sometimes its difficult to see the light ahead and many people are finding these times to be challenging for different reasons.  We are all going through a massive clearing and healing including the solar system, the earth, nature, animals – everything.  We are all evolving and shifting consciously. You can make this easy on yourself and flow upstream with it.  Or resist it.  When we resist it shows up in the body as aches and pains.  Checking in with yourself daily, keeping centred – going out in nature as much as possible.  And anything that wants to come up to be released she will bring it to the surface. Nature offers many jewels that we take for granted.  She is also the best thing for raising your vibration. Nothing comes close to being in nature!  We are all energy beings as Einstein said, vibrating on a different frequency.  So, if want to leverage up in your business and your life – get out in nature and plug back in.   Meditation is the engine room for success, just a few minutes a day.  This is perfect for gaining clarity on anything and once again raising your frequency.  Combined will open you up fast!  David Lynch, renowned film Director, Donna Karen, Gabby Bernstien … are some extraordinary people who have achieved vast amounts of success in their businesses, advocate meditation as part of their spiritual practice, to heighten intuition and overall success in their life.   The right foods, whole foods, live foods, etc. are essential, we are seeing an increase in Raw foodies, at the very least most are now taking extra special care into what  goes into thier bodies – I’m getting withdrawl symptoms if I don’t have my Green Juice first thing in the morning!! lol!  Juicing is fast becoming the norm among the spiritually aware!  For all the benefits of increased energy and vitality it brings.  Our intuition can tell us a lot about the foods we are putting into our body.   Self love is the elixir for healing as we finally wake up and realise that the sheer act of loving yourself first and foremost, filling up your cup to allow you to be your best, shine brightly and ooze inspiration, creativity and happiness, ripples out to everyone you come into contact with, healing yourself, others and the world.  And this is why we have chosen to be here at this very important time in recorded history, is it not?  Self love is many things but avoiding too much alcohol, negative thoughts, negative people AND too much CHOCOLATE!!! Unless it’s RAW!  Myself being a recovering chocoholic have had a hard time until introduced to Raw chocolate. Self love is having compassion, respect and being kind to yourself, so you can give this out to others in a more authentic way…it’s the pre-requisite for everything in our life to come into alignment.   Strengthening the link between you, your intuition and higher self will be heightened when you engage in holistic practices. I’ve spent years in training and honing my intuition, learning different healing modalities & transpersonal psychology,...

The Road Home!

The Road Home!

Do you feel a void, like something is missing from your life?  I’ve travelled a path through many countries in search of an inner peace and indulged in more chocolate than I could burn off on a treadmill, to get my serotonin fix … And after years of feeling I was unable to put down roots, I finally managed to settle into a magical cottage last year, nestled in the Norfolk countryside.  I couldn’t have wished for a more perfect home.  However, somewhere deep inside I still felt unsettled.  As though something was amiss. The void in my life I kept thinking was because I’d spent so many years in a relationship and I felt I wouldn’t fill that void until I found someone special, even though I was busy doing what made me happy.  But inside, I was restless.  Every so often I would feel like running and quick!  Usually out of town.  (There was only so much Chocolate I could eat!!)  I needed freedom, air, to feel alive, awake and engaged in life.  The only way I felt I could find this was to  keep moving and travelling.  But the freedom and excitement would be short lived, as normal life always had to settle back in sooner or later. On the flip side exploring was nourishing my soul, as there is very much a gypsy in me and that I could not suppress, with the love of travel, experiencing new and different cultures and wanting to feel free with no attachments.  (As a strong intuitive with x-ray vision, I can even spin out an eye opening, intuitive reading when I’m in tune!). So, for a few years I’ve spent time doing what I love, traveling, writing, helping other women on the road to success – finding themselves, showing them how to embrace who they really are, opening them up to their intuitive gifts and talents and helping them to achieve better success in their relationships, business and home life.  I have to say these women have been my teachers too. Inside, I was still yearning and searching for something myself  – I was looking for my own inner peace.  But searching in all the wrong places.  Looking outside myself – recognition for my achievements, what hurdles I could jump over next and most importantly that special one!   But none of this was going to give me the fulfilment I needed on a deep level. An over used phrase but … Only I could be the one to complete myself. This can be very common for us Women as we lead such busy lives – for some that’s being a working mum, wife, business owner, or all three.  Life takes over and we busy ourselves with everything else but ourselves.  So, we become disconnected and dispirited in all the chaos and expectations life throws at us. We spend so much time DOING rather than actually BEING! Reconnecting with that deeper part of ourselves helps us find an inner peace and come into alignment with our authentic selves, this is the place where the void is filled, it is the road home, metaphorically speaking … to becoming ‘whole’ and find ourselves. For myself, well I’ve spent a lot of time in South East Asia.  The restless part of my soul is nourished and recharged through travel and these experiences have allowed for some big shifts in my own personal growth.  My last port of call being Indonesia, Bali as you many of you may have seen from the blog.  Here I had many revelations about myself and where...

You deserve Respect, Love & Compassion

You deserve Respect, Love & Compassion

Have you been facing emotional boundary issues?… Are you giving yourself the respect, love & compassion you deserve? I wanted to share this with you as it’s something that effects all of us … A strong inner knowing and loving ourselves is priceless – being able to create emotional boundaries at times from those who don’t make you feel good about yourself is an essential ingredient for happiness and success. Simply by letting them know gently or removing yourself from the situation if the energy is not right … It’s a discovery process too about yourself, (so keep a journal close), the more you love yourself and don’t allow others to treat you in a way that is not acceptable the more you will open yourself up to have those around you that do really want to be in your life for all the right reasons (and these incredibly creative, talented and beautiful people will be lining up – if they can feel energetically you have the love and respect for yourself). Enabling you to really step forward and create the life you want and deserve. Vibrationally you will shift to a whole different level and in no time start to see new opportunities, people, places, etc. show up.  Give yourself the respect, love and compassion you deserve by taking 100% responsibility by not being a victim and choosing how you want you life to...

7 Secrets to Self Discovery & Feeling Fabulous from the Inside Out!

7 Secrets to Self Discovery & Feeling Fabulous from the Inside Out!

For those of you that have watched the blockbuster movie Eat, Pray & Love, you may recognize the lost, lonely and disconnected Liz who on her knees praying to God says: “I’m in serious trouble, I don’t know what to do, tell me what to do…” She takes herself off on an inner journey of self-discovery, through Italy, India and finally Bali on an internal search for balance and her true self. How many of you have at some point in your life through, divorce, ill health or some other life shattering experience been through this?  For some it may be simply coming to terms with age – the wrinkles inhabiting the face, cellulite taking resident on the bum or being filled with regret for the missed opportunities that life delivered. Some would say ruin is a gift and the road to transformation.  When we loose our balance by losing touch with our real selves, (inner goddess, higher self, spirit) whatever you wish to call it, the path is strewn with challenges and only by being prepared for endless waves of transformation can we make the journey smoother as a new chapter begins to unfold.   The question is how do we lift ourselves out of these dark crappy places that resemble something of a void. What I’ve learned from some of the world’s leading lights in the spiritual and self- help field is to fall in LOVE with life whatever stage you are at right now but most of all LOVE the reflection in the mirror.  As Susan Jeffers, Author of Feel the Fear and do it Anyway would say; ‘You’re already perfect, everything is happening perfectly, and you’ll handle it!’ Embrace SENSUALITY– more balance, pleasure and love for yourself and instead of trying to run at a 100 mph start learning how to say No and a big YES to those gut feelings when something isn’t working, or when a well needed break is past it’s due date.  So, put the to do list on ice … make a cupper and nestle into the sofa as you read the secrets for optimum health, wealth (spiritually speaking) and happiness… 1.  Freedom from your thoughts and emotions Select your thoughts like you select your clothes – garbage in, garbage out!  Master your thoughts and still your mind by muting your internal chatterbox – that relentless little voice that has an answer to absolutely everything.  When strong emotions surface observe them and stay detached.  You can do this by giving those feelings a number from 1 to 10 scoring how intense the feeling is and then let it go.  By keeping detached like this you will find the feelings start to fade until the emotion finally collapses.  Do this every time you feel disconnected and out of balance from your thoughts and emotions.  Just remember you are not your thoughts or emotions as these are not part of the Real You. Another way to be find peace and freedom from your thoughts is to ask yourself the following questions: Is it True? Can you absolutely know that it’s true? How do you react when you think that thought? Who would you be without that thought? I love these questions, all from the WORK of Katie Byron, Author of Loving what is. When you master your thoughts you will no longer be a slave to your conditioned mind and finally you will be able to write a brand new script, one that serves you for where you are in your life now.  We are conditioned, programmed at such an early age, pre 6 when...

It’s Never too Late to stop Procrastinating with EFT!

It’s Never too Late to stop Procrastinating with EFT!

We have all experienced it, those underlying fears and emotions that hold us back. The inner voice that tells us we cannot do something, feelings of insecurity, no motivation or all three.  This ‘P’ letter word shackles us to the very core. Underlying procrastination is usually our core beliefs, limiting and self-sabotaging – the one’s that tell us we’re not good enough, not lovable, have to be perfect to be loved and so on. We form these through our perceptions of the world.  Children before the age of 6 download everything from their environment and take on beliefs, attitudes and behaviour from their peers.  While comfortably inhabited in the mother’s womb a child is fed with her every emotion, thought and any stress she experiences. During childhood, we continue to form beliefs from our parents and peers.  Were you allowed to speak up?  Was money scarce?    We experience a host of little and big trauma’s through childhood and adulthood.  These experiences leave their imprints.  We carry these stories with us our whole lives and they continue to play out – by sabotaging our potentials.  We know core beliefs affect every area of life – emotions, decisions, stress, confidence and faith in our ability and we perceive the world in relation to these core beliefs.  The big question is … how do we go about rewriting these? The good news is we can and we do have the ability to rewrite them and take control of our lives transforming our futures.  Energy psychology techniques are noted for having tremendous effects on our health and wellbeing.  They work on a subconscious level enabling us to unravel and unlock the chains that are holding us back.  Emotional Freedom Technique, EFT, is a cutting edge personal development tool, that is taking the world by storm, simple and easy to use.   Incredibly good at facilitating the rewriting of disempowering, limiting and self sabotaging beliefs held in the subconscious mind. Many talking therapies can take years to complete the work EFT can do in just a short time.  It works by removing any emotional and traumatic experiences from the body by working with the body’s energy system by tapping on the acupuncture meridian points, instead of sticking needles into them we tap on them which allows memories from the past to surface.   Often these maybe long forgotten or vague scenes in our minds.   With EFT we tune into these memories and scenes, the tapping then collapses and releases the charge held in the memories.   A sequence of tapping points are used which moves and unblocks the body’s energy.   It takes time and patience, as we are like onions, forever peeling back the layers but if you wish for emotional freedom and to rid yourself of the blocks that hold you back, EFT is proven to get results … ! So, if you are fed up procrastinating, wanting to let go of limiting, self-sabotaging beliefs and begin to experience life through a new perspective, experience this life transforming tool and step into your own personal power.  For more information on this and other energy psychology tools and techniques; email sjdyer85@hotmail.com.      ...
