Divine Love-The Clay Of The Universe

Published 24/03/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

IMG_3317

Today we wish to talk of love and its implications. Nothing makes us happier than to love. It is the divine order of all things. Love in its infinite glory and wisdom is the ‘be’ and the ‘all’. It is in all things at all times, no matter how they appear.

Everything is made up of this energy of love. Even if you cannot see it. Even death and pain is made of love. Even murderers and rapists are made of love. What you judge as black and dark is also made of love.

It is the divine energy in all things that flows. Sometimes it is like a chocolate peanut, coated with darker energy on the outside but in the kernel is the divine spark. Look for it in all things and you will see it.

Even in events, cycles and experiences; you will discover love at its core. The reason you may not see it is because you are looking through your glasses of personal perception and judgement. When things are not going well for you in your life you judge the experience as being bad or without flow or love but we say to you to look at the core of this experience or cycle in your life and you will find divine love as its driving energy. For it would not exist without divine love at its core for this is the energy of all existence.

Every living thing and every experience or event is created through divine love for it is the only energy that converts to matter on Earth. What you do with this energy is of your own creation, it is your choice. You have free will.

It is like the plasticine or clay. At first, it is just a lump without form that you hold in your hand then it is up to you to create whatever it is you desire from this lump of energetic matter. What do you choose to create? A beautiful sculpture of a flower or perhaps an angry gargoyle. The choice, of course, is yours again.

But no matter what you create or what the result is, it will still always be made from the original plasticine or clay, which can always be remoulded and reshaped again and again.

This is the energy of divine love; it also can be remoulded or reshaped again and again, continually forever. You do not have to stop creating after the first try. Continue to work the clay, continue to remould it and reshape it until you eventually find what makes you happy. Remembering as you do so that at the core of what you are creating is the original clay or divine love.

There need not be a beginning and an end to it for it continues on forever. Divine love does not end, it does not die, it is energy that flows forever. It is infinite and so are your choices of what you create and what you are.

Because everything is made with divine love it also is infinite and flows on forever, even you. You are a divine energetic being made from divine love and you flow on forever. What you call death is just another experience for you as an energetic being. It is not an end in itself, it is simply a change, a movement, a lifting again of the flow if you will. It is the energy of divine love moving back to its source pool for a while before it is then recreated and remoulded into a new experience on Earth or perhaps elsewhere in the Universe.

Everything is made from this divine love energy and it is constantly being recreated in this dimension in various forms.

Divine love does not “die” because it has no beginning and no end. It is continuous and flows on forever in the spiral of life as you know it. It is the flow that you wish to discover. Connect to the flow of divine love energy and you will understand the universe more.

This third-dimensional realm is very deceiving and it is hard sometimes for you to remember the energy of divine love and how it flows through all things. We understand this and we say to you to connect to this energy in all things and all beings and you will understand more of what you seek. You will understand that all is infinite, even yourselves, and all flows forever in the timelessness of the universe in divine love from the heart of Source. We thank you now.

Channel from Lord Buddha

My Dear Friends,

I visited the Jade Buddha Temple in Shanghai again yesterday morning, this is my local Buddhist Temple and one in which I visit regularly, say my prayers, give my offerings to the Buddha, to my family, ascended family, guides and masters.

On yesterdays visit after I had done my prostration prayers I stood and did a standing meditation in front of the Buddha and I asked him if he would honour me with his grace and channel through me and last night as I slept I received a visit by the Lord Buddha, here are some of his words from that channel.

Dear one, this is the Buddha that has stepped forth to you today, you came to me and asked for a connection to you and here I am. I will share with you today some of my thinking and offer you my support as you continue along your journey of self-discovery. I too set out on a journey of self discovery, I meditated as you do in the hope of finding myself and understanding impermanence, the cause of suffering and what brings happiness and peace to our hearts. During my journey I was joined by many others, this was not my intention; as my journey was my own journey, however these others were also following their own journey of self discovery so they joined me and formed a Sangha where we sat in circle as you do and meditated and contemplated upon our own journeys. It is; Dear One my thought that by creating a circle the collective consciousness and energy of that circle helps raise the frequencies of all within the collective, and enables each one to attain understanding earlier. We must however remember that no journey of self-discovery is alike and we will ascend at different times; as and when we are ready. There is no time limit Dear One and it may not happen within your physical lifetime, but it will happen through Samsara. Remember Dear One that nothing is permanent, everything in life is in a constant flow moving forward; never back, and it is important for you to understand this, because all that you see is not real, only a fabrication and story of what your ego mind tells you about that experience. Life as you see it is based upon how you act or react to each situation that is presented to you, if you choose to judge or act in anger, with hatred or fear then you will create a Karmic reaction that will stay with you and your reincarnations for ever more, so please Dear One choose to act with non-judgement, react or respond with love and compassion and always be open to receive love and compassion as you travel your pathway. I see Dear One that like so many others you seek answers, seek knowledge and seek happiness and love but also remember Dear One that ‘Life is in the being, not in the knowing’, so do not waste your life searching for what is already inside you Dear One, allow yourself to open fully to the light, give up your ego mind and submit to your Divine Will and offer yourself in service to source and you will find your peace and live your happiness.

Blessed Be All Beings, Blessed Be All Beings, Blessed Be All Beings.

What Is Love ?

My Dear Friends

A wonderful channel from Lady Nada by In’Easa Mabu Ishtar

Today is the time to talk of love that which you talk about all the time. But what is love? Is it some kind of dream you have before waking up to find it is all an illusion? For many of you this may be true. But know this dear hearts – love simply is.

Love is in everything you do and see, everything you touch, everything around you. Love is an energy of consciousness and not an emotion or feeling. Now let us be clear on this. We are not talking about love in terms of romantic love. We are talking about the energy of consciousness called love and this is a very different thing to your third-dimensional love.

God’s consciousness is love, therefore it is in everything as God is in everything. But sometimes you can’t see it because you are seeking something else. God’s love is not about redemption, dear hearts. There is no redeeming here. God does not need to redeem anything from its love consciousness. This energy simply is as it is. God’s love is not conditional. It does not rely on an unspoken contract or agreement with you or another party to exist. There is no win win here.

Many of you understand love as being a conditional thing. For you it is an emotion that can only exist if your desires and needs are met. I will love you if… you love me back, you give me diamonds, you support and nurture me, and on it goes. Such an endless list of wants and desires.

This is not love. This is an agreement based on an emotional response. Yet this is the love you exchange with each other every day. With all your “loved” ones – mothers, fathers, children, lovers, husbands and partners, friends and acquaintances.

The consciousness of love itself does not need to be created by you for it already exists in everything that is, dear hearts. In every cell of your being there is love. In every part of the Earth in nature there is love. When you look around with your heart open and your eyes clear from the veils of illusion you will see the consciousness of love in everything,

Love is not the emotional experience of highs and lows. Divine Love leaves its wondrous energy around you and offers peace and calm, an acceptance of all that is. Love lives in the moment, it is not something that has to be recalled from the past or sent into the future. It just is.

Divine love, dear ones, asks nothing for or of itself. It does not require agreements or exchange to exist, It just is. It is always with you, yet sometimes you are unable to see it because you are so caught in the web of your emotions and beliefs about what love is. These emotions will distract you from many things and from seeing that which is right in front of you. It really is not so difficult. It is simple, dear hearts, so we ask you to avoid making it so complicated. It is easy to connect with the divine consciousness of love, avoid making it so hard for yourself. Allow it to flow in your heart and mind.

When so many of you call for love, saying I want some love in my life, some happiness, you are not calling for God’s divine love you are calling for someone else to fulfil you and walk with you on your path. You are asking that someone else give you the ‘love’ and nurturing you feel you are unable to give yourself.

You desire someone else to make you feel better about who you are, to recognize you, to confirm you in some way and to give you the self-esteem you seem unable to give yourself. You are asking of another to create a contract or agreement of exchange with you. You are saying… “I want someone to come along who will love me…. I want someone who will come along and make me feel good about myself. If they do that I will shower them with my emotional and physical love. But if I stop feeling good about myself at any time I will withdraw my love immediately.”

Love is not a contract, beloved hearts. Love simply is. This love you speak of in your physical realm does not fulfil you, which is why so many of your bondings and relationships end up in sadness and tears. This is because your contracts have not been fulfilled. Whenever you have made silent agreements with others you will always find disappointment because no other can fulfil your needs about yourself.

Only you can create your life, dear ones. In the same way you cannot do someone else’s path or journey then accept that another is unable to do your path or journey. The responsibility for your path and your experience here on Earth lies with all that you choose to create for yourself.

We are not saying to avoid relationships with other beings on the Earth, dear hearts, this is not so. We are saying that when you have opened your heart and mind to receive God’s love within yourself you will see it and recognize it in everything and everyone else.

When you choose to open to this, then your relationships will be supported by this energy of love – unconditional love. All will be in every moment in peace and harmony with everything else. The emotions will not need to be fed and feelings such as fear, judgement and anger will have no cause to arise.

There will be no agreements in your relationships with other beings because you will love unconditionally all beings. You will also not feel you are separate or alone, dear ones, because you will feel as one with all beings and all things. You will see that you are never alone. You are always uplifted and supported by other beings. You will understand you are a beloved child of the universe.

Now, we say to you dear ones,  to see and understand God’s love appears to be an impossible task for many in the physical realities you are choosing to create on the Earth. But in truth this is what you seek in every moment. You seek this fulfilment because deep within you know it exists because you have felt it so many times before when you have chosen to open your heart and mind to receive from the heart of Source.

The path to God’s love is not so difficult, dear ones. In fact, it can be an adventure. Think of it as fun and a game. To see God’s love in every waking moment is simply a matter of making a choice each and every day – choose to see God’s love all around you. Release all emotions as they surface within you and let go all beliefs of separation. As you feel your emotions and thought forms them bubbling up announce them out loud to yourself and honor them. Become conscious and aware and then choose to release them to God. In this way, dear hearts, your emotions and thought forms will not cloud you from seeing what your divine truth.

Choose to live your life in harmony and create balance in your four bodies – mental, physical, emotional and spiritual. Live not in the one over the others. Understand that you do not have to seek God’s love nor do you have to try and create it, for it is always with you. You only need to lift the veils of your mind and heart and you will see it and feel it. When choose to walk consciously in God’s divine heart then you will find all that you seek. Blessings on your journey into the one heart of love.

Washing Away Years Of Pain

Published 15/02/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

12705735_10153941040108185_624648936203906629_n

My Dear Friends,

Once again I’m sorry for the lack of posts lately; but I have been spending so much time channeling, connecting with my higher self and generally working on the things that have been holding me back in my life. Most of the time has been spent understanding who I really am, and then; understanding what I really want for the rest of this physical life! Where is this life taking me? What am I looking for? and How do I want to proceed?

Where is this life taking me? What am I looking for? and How do I want to proceed?

Simple right?

No!

Going into deep meditation, connecting with my higher self and connecting with my soul has not been easy, it took lots of practice; many thousands of hours in meditation, calming and controlling the ego mind, asking it to step aside and to go with the flow. Then step by step connecting with my own ‘Group Heart’, all the beings that have made up my life/s through all space, time and dimensions, all my previous incarnation lives, their souls and their aspects. This is a fantastic process and sometimes you think you have it all in place, life is good, the spiritual pathway is opening up fully for you then…. ‘BAM’… another aspect or Karmic problem smacks you right in the face!!! and everything comes to a screeching halt!

This is part of the journey my friends, dealing with what you think are all your problems, the stories of old that hold you back, the Karmic problems that you have created through actions/reactions in the past, judgement of others; etc. These are just the tip of the iceberg to say the least, because there may be possibly thousands of issues coming to face you on your journey, E.g, you may be in a meditation, meditating on say ‘Love’ and all is looking good, then all of a sudden you experience a pain, maybe it’s in the heart or in the neck, the leg, the shoulder; or anywhere else in your body, but when you finish the meditation the pain goes away so you think nothing of it, then perhaps on another occasion you are once again meditating on love and the pain comes back again; but once again after the meditation has finished the pain mysteriously goes away!….What does this mean? Are you sick?…..No, it’s more likely that the pain is brought on by one of your ‘Aspects’, this could be from a previous life or could be from another part of your being from another dimension (way too much info to think about in this post 🙂 ) This Aspect may have had a problem with love, maybe their heart was broken, maybe they were even killed or severely injured because of love, in the pursuit of love, who knows! So in order to move on with your life you have to go into meditation and try to connect with the part of you that is in seperation with you regarding love, because, unless you resolve this seperation with this Aspect and bring them into your group heart consciousness; the problem will never go away, and you will always have issues when it comes to love. Now, this is not just about love, the same thing goes for health, life, feelings, friendships, family, work, situations, the way you act, react to situations etc…This list is endless so like ducks in a line you need to deal with the Aspects as and when they come up for you,

Now, this is not just about love, the same thing goes for health, life, feelings, friendships, family, work, confrontational situations, the way you act or react to situations, challenges in your life; etc…The list is endless, so; like ducks in a line you need to deal with the Aspects as and when they come up for you, it’s no good brushing them under the carpet in the hope that they will go away because guess what? They won’t go away!

Once you clear all these issues with old Karma and Aspects then life is good and once again you move forward on your journey but always remember that there may be setbacks ahead of you, so when they come up, don’t judge them, don’t brush them under the carpet, go into meditation, find out what is causing you this pain, making you act or react in this way as it may well be an Aspect or a Karmic bond that you need to deal with before you can set sail again 🙂

I hope this helps you on your journey of understanding, my friends?

Namaste, with Love

Always

Open Your Heart To Change

Published 10/02/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

CW5cforWQAA2ebB

My Dear Friends,

Beautiful words from the Masters by 

The tides of energy are turning and changing right now on the Earth as we begin to step into the new age of evolution for each soul. We are being called to lift our consciousness and expand our hearts and minds and, as the many rays of light flood the planet to support us in this endeavour, there is still much resistance to this new way of being in the heart of humanity. We are still choosing to play out the old karma that is held within us before we resolve it and become free of the bonds of our attachments.

As a collective of souls, hu-mans are beginning to move into a new phase of becoming all that we are and we are opening and changing the consciousness of our being. This is a process of growth and adaptation as we transform the old into a new way of being. It is the alchemy that is occurring between the ego mind and the higher consciousness as they begin to reconnect and it will bring many changes to the individual soul as well as to the collective. This is occurring for everyone across the planet and many can feel it.

Yet we are being asked to hold patience in our hearts, for patience is needed as we move through this process. It cannot be speeded up to suit your impatience, dear heart, all will flow as it is needed.

We are also being asked to let go of the consciousness that creates separation in our minds and hearts and to allow all in the collective to play their part and bring the gifts they hold to the group heart so all may grow through all they have come to learn.

The Earth too is shifting and this energy is creating chaos and change across the Earth for many people. Yet remember that out of chaos comes amazing rebirth and regeneration. For new growth change and destruction is often required and the Masters ask us not to be so sad about this. It is what is, our beloveds.

When the chaos causes death and destruction the Masters ask us to understand that all those who leave their bodies do not truly leave us, they are simply changing and shifting their reality from the physical to another vibration or way of being and their soul knows this vibration well. As this shift is created for them they will rejoice in this new way of being and move forward on their journey. Celebrate and honor their new vibration of energy.

The Masters tell us that the Earth is growing and her womb is turning and getting ready for birth. This transformation will continue for some time until she is ready to ascend, yet these Earth changes will create more change of consciousness for everyone who stands on the Earth in all their forms as all are needed in the group heart to support this new creation in the Universe.

The Masters ask us not to be afraid, for all is as it is, our beloveds. They ask you to hold the love in your heart and allow the energy of the pure light to pulse through you. Whenever you feel afraid they ask you to call to them, the angels or your guides and allow them to assist you and hold you in sacred space. Open your hearts to receive the support that is there for you.

Choose to open up your hearts and allow the Light to flow through you and when you have received it fully then send it out through your open heart to all beings on the Earth who feel they are suffering. Send your love out to these ones and share with them the light rays of your heart.

Every time you hear of chaos and change on the Earth or feel people are suffering anywhere, choose not to close your heart and berate those in power or those responsible for creating this chaos. Simply open your heart and allow the light rays to flow through you. Channel them using your breath from your crown chakra and send the light to your heart and then out to all people who are suffering, as well as those you believe to be the perpetrators and are wishing to blame. Send pure light instead of blame and anger.

There is no one to blame, our beloveds. There is nothing to blame, our beloveds, all is as it is. The Masters ask you to accept this and call upon the light to flood through you and send this love and light out to all who may only see the suffering and pain, send the light out to all who can only see the darkness.

Share with them the light so they may stand in the Light of Source even as they believe they are suffering. Assist them to connect with the light of Source so they may know its transformational power and its ability to cleanse the spirit of the illusion of physical matter.

Allow this to flow through you in every moment, our beloveds. Every time you hear or see anything that makes you feel fear in your heart or sadness and pain, the Masters ask you to call to the light of Source to flow through you in this very moment. Choose to not step into the illusion.

Call on the light of Source and allow it to flow throughout your being so that you may then share this pure light with others on the Earth who have walked into the illusion of pain and suffering.

Do this, our beloveds, and the illusion of darkness will change to light and love. Do this, our beloveds, and your hearts will open and sing.

Do this, our beloveds, and love will pour forth from you in a golden ray of hope and joy.

Do this, our beloveds, and the world will change and be as one with Source in the one heart of All that Is.

Do this, our beloveds, and you will know peace and joy. We love you.

Namaste with Love

Busy Channeling

My Dear Friends,

I’m so, so sorry for not making the time to write on my blog lately but I have been so busy lately doing channelling sessions, connecting with my Soul, My Divine Presence and setting up my Group Heart Consciousness. This is all great but also very draining for me and when I come to write on my blog my mind is so calm and at ease that it is ‘Mindless’ so I guess my Meditations and Mindfulness are working wonders 🙂

I am also creating lots of codes that come up during my channelling sessions and also speaking more in Ancient language and Light Languages, these gifts are also gaining strength and becoming part of my everyday 🙂

I also notice that my clairempath abilities are also building rapidly and my emotions are on hightened alert to suffering in myself of in others, the slightest thing, slightest sign of suffering causes my emotions to flow in the form or tears, physical or mental pain etc.

My pathway is becoming more clear as I work on my Group Heart Consciousness and as we come together into the ‘One Heart’ presence of all that we are, I can clearly see, feel and sence all the gifts that all my beings from all time, space and dimensions bring to our collective group heart. These gifts are meant to be made manifest for the benefit of humanity here on Earth and as I move forward on this journey I/we will bring these gifts to you.

I feel blessed, thankful and so grateful that I have chosen to walk this spiritual pathway and I look forward to being of service to Humanity and Mother Earth as we continue to walk in the light of ‘Source’ 🙂

Namaste, with Love

Always

Unfolding My Wings, I Fly.

Freedom of mind leaves me with peace, the true peace, tranquility and happiness meant for my life here on Earth within this lifetime.

Freeing my mind and it’s torturous ways and the bindings of thought that hold me back from reaching my full potential. I am a divine being, I am light, I am love, I am one with God and my mind will no longer hold me prisoner within this lifetime.

My destiny is in my own hands, my future happiness is within my control, my mind will no longer play a part in my life because I have chosen to take back the controls and broken free of its grasp, I cut myself free from its bindings and will live my life in happiness with grace and ease.

Today, a new day, a day to be thankful for, a new dawning has given rise to my birthing, the birthing of the new me, a refreshed me, a being of light whose wings of freedom have been bound in the past, hidden from my view, but these wings are now free, they are open and ready to take flight, to soar high into the light, above the clouds that cast darkness on humanity, to take me to new pastures, and a new beginning.

I give thanks for all that I am,

I give thanks for all I will be.

Namaste with Love

A Prayer At Christmas

Published 23/12/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

static1.squarespace.jpg

 

My Dear Friends,

At this time of year we are so busy with the commercialism of Christmas, chasing around like busy bees, spending all our hard earned money on things we probably don’t need, buying way, way too much food and either enjoying every moment of the festivities or for many of us cringing at the very thought of having to go through this again!

My dear teacher In’easa mabu Ishtar posted this wonderful article and prayer especially for Christmas, I do hope you like it?

Namaste with Love

Always

Mark

I firmly believe that Christmas time has been created so that we all have the potential to resolve a little of our karma and let go the old stories that keep us trapped in our past, limited in our future and not always present in our lives.

It is the perfect opportunity, as we come together with the group of souls who are our greatest teachers and mirrors on the journey. It is these souls who are are constant reminders of what we hold inside ourselves that needs to be brought into the light again. They also remind us of who and what we are.

And this Christmas is extra special because it falls right on a full moon, a full moon in the sign of Cancer. Cancer is the astrological sign that is all about emotions, families, love, caring, healing, mothers, children, hearth and home.

The last full moon to fall on Christmas Day was in 1977 and the next will be 2034. So all around the planet we are being given the perfect gift right now to let go the old, heal the past and open to the light in our hearts for our families and loved ones.

I am praying that all around the world in all communities we choose to open our hearts to this wonderful opportunity the Universe is giving us. Will you join me in this prayer? (See prayer below)

At this time of the year we often find ourselves face to face with our old stories from the past as we connect with our families and bloodlines. Many of these stories have remained dormant in our memories until we suddenly find ourselves sitting across from the mirror at the Christmas table.

Perhaps it is our elder brother that used to tease us and treat us like the younger sibling we were, yet how we hated this. Perhaps it is another sibling who bullied us unfairly and unwisely. Each story a trigger for the karma that sits inside of us telling us that we are not good enough or worthy enough.

Perhaps it is a painful memory of not being loved or supported as a child and we suddenly begin to revert to the unhappy or angry child we once were under the roof of our parent’s house.

Each time an old story arises we may become triggered and emotions we have not felt for the whole year may resurface. These emotions rise in us like  a volcano and, no matter what we may have promised ourselves that morning about not letting drunken Uncle Tommy upset us or Mum’s snide remarks about our weight get us riled up, we suddenly become overwhelmed by the feelings we have successfully managed to ignore or keep in check all year.

When this occurs we are suddenly back in the old stories of our past that come up again for us to look at.

Across the family Christmas table the energy cords of attachment are running like bright lines of light everywhere connecting each one of our family members and these energetic attachments cause us to go into reaction and response.

Yet as you sit with your families and loved ones this year I am going to ask you to remember the truth of who you are. Please remember that you are a divine being of light. You are not your old story. Please take a deep breath and open your heart and embrace your divine truth and not your illusion.

Let go your need to want to change this old story and create a different outcome – even now after all these years. The story is in the past, the experience is over. It is time to let it go. You are no longer living this experience again unless you are choosing to recreate it. You are no longer the child who feels unloved or lost, you no longer have to be the victim of someone else’s pain or projections.

Instead of trying to change the story or the person or persons involved in the story choose to let it go. Leave it in the past where it belongs. Do not bring it into the present where it does not belong.

If you are in reaction it is because you have never let the story go and you are still holding the consciousness you created in yourself when you responded to this experience. This is the karma you created. The cause is the experience – the effect is what you are still holding that you created in reaction to this experience. You cannot change the experience but you can change the effect.

The effect is the story you told yourself about yourself in reaction to this experience. So what story did you create about yourself when you had this experience? What did you tell yourself? It is this story that you need to let go of now.

Often the child will tell herself that she is not loved because her parents did not behave or act in a way that she wanted and expected. Therefore she told herself the story that she is not loved or loveable.

Perhaps when the child was bullied he told himself that he would never be strong enough to stand up to the bullies so he created the story he was weak and useless. Whenever this is mirrored to him he becomes very angry at himself and everyone else and may even become a bully himself in later years.

There are so many stories we create about who and what we are from our experiences, particularly when we are children. Yet these are not our truth today, unless we choose to believe the stories we created and repeat the them again and again.

Have you ever wondered why four siblings growing up in the same household with the same parents will have completely different versions of their childhood? It is because each soul comes in with different karma to resolve from past incarnations. This karma will drive them to create the stories they create that are unique to them because it each child has a different point of view of the same experience due to the karma they hold inside themselves.

Please try to remember that everyone is creating their own reality in each moment and this reality may be very different to your reality because even though we are all One we are also all unique with our own gifts and karma.

As you sit down with your family this year please try to see each person as a soul, a being of divine light, and not just as a personality. Each one of these beautiful souls has come to support you in some way, even if you may not like the way they are doing it.

Often it they are there to mirror back to you the karma that you hold deep inside you that needs to be resolved. They have come to remind you to let it go. Others have also come to mirror back to you your light. The question for you is are you willing and ready to open your heart to receive the gift they have come to offer to you?

Choose to open your heart and remember who you truly are this Christmas and take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to heal and resolve the past so you are free to live unencumbered in the now and create your future with peace, love and joy in your heart.

I offer this prayer out now to all souls. Please join me:

May we choose to open our hearts to our divine truth and let go our illusions
May we choose to see the divine light of each other’s hearts
May we accept that each being is a divine being of light
May we honor the divine light in each other and accept we are One together
May all pain and suffering be released now
May all old stories be released now
May all we hold that creates separation be forgiven and released now
May we choose to honor all beings and hold them in our hearts as One with us
May we be blessed with love and compassion and offer this to all we meet
We affirm that we are divine light
We affirm that we are divine love
We affirm that we are all divine children of God
Blessed be all beings on the Earth
Blessed be all beings on the Earth
Blessed be all beings on the Earth

The Pathway of Life is a Spiral, Not a Straight Line!

My Dear Friends ,

Just when you think you have your life and your spiritual journey sorted…then…BAM!..Your whole world gets tipped upside down and you feel you have been blown off your course and it becomes difficult to know where you are on your journey and you get a Deja Vu feeling that you have been here before!

Well, that’s how I feel sometimes, anyway!

Been here, done that……I know you, or I have experienced this; or that before, haven’t I?

Almost certainly 🙂

Our life / lives, reincarnations take us on an endless journey, a journey of discovery, a wonderful journey in which our life / lives play out dependent upon our thoughts and our beliefs. We forge ahead often looking for something such as happiness, peace, love, abundance etc, or if we are on a more specific spiritual journey, maybe even awakening and enlightenment.

I don’t know about you but one minute you think you have that meditation thing cracked, then the next day your ego mind is back in the game filling your tranquil mind full of thoughts, spiraling around one after another like crazy dogs chasing their tails in the park 🙂

Or another day your heart is so full of compassion and kindness that every soul in need that you see breaks your heart and brings you to tears.

So, I have realised that my life is constantly evolving and there is no right or wrong way to travel my journey and I now firmly believe that our spiritual pathway is a spiral and we keep stumbling back across things we have experienced before, maybe even in a previous life, these reincarnated meetings along our journey of life are put there for a reason to remind us, to make us remember and enable is to see deeper truths.

So my dear friends, the next time you get that Deja Vu feeling, think of me and my stumblings along on my journey too 🙂

Namaste with Love

Always

Love and Light, My Personal Gift To All Of Humanity

Published 20/11/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

My Dear Friends,

Who am I, and what do I have to give to humanity?

Well, I am human, at least my physical form says I am…But that’s a deeper story and one I won’t go into now 🙂

I am 1 person living on Planet Earth, I am one of 7.5 Billion souls on this planet today, I live in a city of 25 Million souls, each with their own thoughts, personality, set of behaviours, religious and political belief systems​, cultural style & belief​, race, gender, sexual preference, education level etc…So, what is it I have to offer Humanity?

Well, I can offer Humanity my love, my compassion, my voice and my light…All these things I can give…Freely!..I have no agenda, no reason other than to help spread the word of love through my own light and my own personal voice..

I want​ to share my love with all who are willing to listen and to receive​, there is no agenda or recompense​ required, I just want to speak out and to give you my love 🙂

Our world is filled with beautiful souls, many of which stand on the rooftops and shout out for all to hear, there​ are also many who want to stand on the rooftops and shout out; but they are fearful of being shot down in flames, held back with a fear of retaliation​ against what they are saying or trying to share with our world, with humanity! Many of these gentle souls are hounded by trolls on the internet, receiving bad comments, taunted into cyber arguments; all because of their openness and passion fondness to share their love with humanity!…

My Dear Freinds, we are living in a world where nothing is perfect and there is no ‘cookie cutter’ template or fix for humanity, we are all one, we are all from the same one source, we are one in humanity we are ‘ IN THIS TOGETHER!’..Life, living life and loving life is subject to personal choice and how we choose to live our life is personal to each and every one of us…

I am only 1, but I promise you, I will ‘ALWAYS’ do my best for humanity, for our environment and for our planet, because I only have this life (well maybe not only this life, but again that’s​ a different story and subject to personal belief again 🙂 ).

So, here I am on Friday 20th November 2015 saying to you…

I give you my Love and My Light, Please share with others as I am sure there are many souls out there that would love to receive​ the love and light from you too 🙂

Namaste with​ Love
Always

Where Is My Life Taking Me?

Published 22/10/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

My Dear Friends,

Here I go again…thinking…and raising myself another challenging question…….

Where is my life taking me?

I sit, I ponder, I think and I meditate……..

………

…….

Just when we think our life is settled, some curve ball comes our way!…..Our life is turned upside downI Change my friends is inevitable , our lives are constantly in flow, this way, that way, ever changing and we ourselves never stay still, especially our minds, worrying about this, worrying about that, planning this, arranging that, floating off after the next thought process that comes into our minds and as were following that though another thought pops up and we follow that too, and on and on it goes, our busy minds controlling our lives….But, do we have to be slaves to our mind, can we draw the line in the sand and say to our mind ‘No More’, I don’t want to follow you anymore, I want freedom of mind, I want peace in my life?

Well, we could all pack up our things now and go off and become Buddhist Monks or Nuns, we could go off to the mountains of India, Thailand or Tibet, we could seek out a Guru to follow, we could give up all our worldly possessions and meditate for years on end…. But!…, will that satisfy our mind and bring us a more peaceful and contented life?…For some, yes,… It is a noble path to follow and certainly one I greatly respect and often wish for myself…But, I also live in the realities of life and I honour who I am, where I am and what is important for me. I, like most of you have family, friends, colleagues, work, commitments etc, I, like many others also dream of that better life, a more fulfilling spiritual life in which I can help those less fortunate than I.

So, where is my life taking me?….

Well, It’s taking me where I need to be each day, and I need to come to terms with that very fact, I am where I am because how and what I think, I’m here right now writing this post because this is where I need to be and this is what I should be doing right now…Fact!

I work with people Spiritually and through Psychology each and everyday, I and those who know me know what sort of man I am, I give my all, I give my love, I give my compassion out to humanity everyday and I’m certainly grateful for all the love I have in my life, for all the abundance in my life, for all the support I have in my life and I always give thanks for all that I am in each and every moment, so…..

My life is what I make of it, it will flow in the direction I take it,….

I choose to live a life of Love, Compassion and Support for the betterment of humanity, mother earth and our environment 🙂

Namaste with Love

10 Science Based Reasons to Start Meditating Today

Published 02/04/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

My Dear Friends,

I came across this wonderful infographic by Emma Seppala, PhD today and I thought it was well worth a post; especially as I have been contacted by various people recently asking me what is the benefit of meditating and besides all my normal answers like, peace of mind, quality time for yourself, lower stress levels, a rise in happiness, less anxiety, better sleep, better relationships etc; I felt Emma’s graphic helps a lot when you want to understand the benefits from a science base too.

I obviously cannot stress the importance of meditation enough and I thoroughly recommend meditation for everyone and starting at any age is ok 🙂

I do hope you find this post interesting and you start your meditation practice today 🙂

Namaste with Love

Inner Peace…Achievable?

Published 20/03/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

Achieving ‘Inner Peace’…What!, with all I have going on in my life, what with work, the kids, extra hours trying to learn new things, taking the kids to gym, dance, swimming lessons, looking after the dog, cat and goldfish, ego talking constantly to me to do better, work faster, loose weight etc…Chance would be a fine thing!……Does this or some of it resonate with you?

Well, if it does; then you can achieve ‘Inner Peace’ but you have to make the effort to achieve it, it wont just happen overnight. You need to set yourself up to learn, you need to dedicate time each and every day to meditate, if only for a few minutes…’No excuses, don’t put it off until tomorrow, because as you well know, ‘Tomorrow, never comes‘!

When I first started meditation, i found it hard, i always felt as though I was doing something wrong, everyone i knew or met that meditated looked so calm, they all said how they could go into a deep, calm and reflective space where they connected with themselves, this may be in a garden, or by the ocean, on a mountain top, in a fantasy playground, floating on a cloud etc but for me all I could get was thoughts springing into my mind, thoughts about work, my vacation, children, what i needed to do later that day, i could hear the children, the phone, car horns blaring… but no inner peace. I could not feel the calmness that all my friends were experiencing…So I thought, ‘maybe there is something wrong with me’, or do they really experience that or are they just saying that to make me feel inadequate, perhaps they are also experiencing what I am but don’t really want to tell me!  🙂 Well, I stuck at it, at first for 5 minutes a day, then i tried 5 minutes twice per day, then after a few days i realised i was becoming more calm so i extended to 10 minutes, then twice per day and on and on it went, now I can easily achieve 1 or more hours and these sessions flash by like they were only minutes, i go into a deep quiet place but I am always aware, i can hear all that is going on around me, i feel the touch of the dogs wagging tail, the sounds are still there but now i can control them, i label my thoughts as ‘Thoughts’ and sounds as ‘sounds’ and i welcome connections from my heart, my soul and anyone else that wants to connect with me….I have over time started to achieve inner peace, it is a place of joy, of smiles, of reflection, a place where i can connect to my self, where i can spend quality time with myself, where i can feel my body, be aware of my health and all that ails me and concentrate for once on ‘Me’

Meditation is available to everyone, young or old, rich or poor and it costs you nothing, only time….and in my humble opinion…’Time well spent’ 🙂

Have a wonderful weekend my friends

Energy, Darkness and Light, Positive and Negative

Published 17/03/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

ca7312e3cf556bfd6881b053e15d7df3

A dear Chinese friend of mine asked me to explain ‘Energy’ to another Chinese friend last night…..’Wow’ ! I thought, how do I explain that one’ in one easy sentence 😦

I was slightly lucky because just at that moment these two lovely Chinese ladies were being harassed a little by a foreigner who was a little drunk, very loud, argumentative, highly non-empathetic and downright arrogant…I therefore had the perfect way to explain ‘Energy’ to this young lady who is going through some severe relationship problems at the moment. She had come out for the evening to meet with her friend in order to gain some help and hopefully some advice regarding her problems. I was just a bystander being asked to help, so here is what I said to this young lady…

‘Energy’, is something that some of us can feel but others cannot! You called your friend and asked her to meet you this evening in order for her to listen to your relationship troubles and hopefully help you with her advice, you called her because you trust her, she is quietly spoken, friendly and she listens to you, she will not judge you and she will hold your hand and be there for you, her ‘Energy’ is calm and you feel comfortable sharing these intimate problems with her, right? She nodded and said yes, I feel she can really help me :)…

I then turned to this foreigner and said to her, he is the opposite of your friend, you turn your back to him, your shoulders are rounded away from him, your head is down and you try to be as far away from him as possible, he is loud, he is aggressive, he is pushy towards you, he invades your personal space and only thinks of himself, you feel insecure and threatened by him, right? She nodded and said yes!…

His energy is bad, it is dark, it is forceful and he wants to control you, can you see the difference?…She immediately nodded her head and said yes with a smile, I said this is ‘Energy’… 🙂 and the difference between positive (happy) and negative (dark, threatening)

From that moment on, she opened up to her friend and to me and we were able to connect to her problems, the arrogant guy got the message and left us alone and at the end of the evening she went home feeling happier and carried with her a little love and positive energy from us both 🙂

Remember my friends, ‘the darkness cannot prevail if you turn on the light’ 🙂

Time To let Go, Start Living Your Life and Be Free

Published 16/03/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

21a627d029a2659d756052e36601e074

I have read and also written many posts regarding ‘Letting Go’, letting go of the past, breaking free from the chains that bind you down and hold you back from enjoying your life and reaching your full potential. These chains, shackles from the past can be of different sorts, they can be relationships, family, work based, life experiences, traumatic events, abuse etc but in the end they are all the same in their effect on your life. Never a day goes by without your mind relating to these past events or experiences, or thinking about ways in which you can change the past, re-connect with the person who grieves you, wishing they would be loving towards you, these experiences conjure up many awful thoughts and bad memories in your mind, they take over your life and effect everything you try to do. For the majority of us we push on with our lives and hope we will feel better, we try to mend the past through the things we try to do in the ‘now’ and also plan things for the future that we hope will take away the pain and make amends for these past experiences which have had so much of a negative effect on our life.

I too have had my own fair share of burdens in this life time, and I’m sure many others in previous lives too, I try to think positively most of the time (highlight on ‘most’ 🙂 ) but those nagging memories just come back time and time again, they continue to bring our morale down and control our lives in the ‘Now’….

So,…’Now’ is the time to take a real stance, it’s time to let go once and for all, to break the chains that shackle us down, that tie our wings to our bodies and restrict our flight.

e3d59f540418b99dfd175a27794f860a

We need to smile at the experience, the memory, at a picture of the person or re-connect to the past event and say goodbye, to wish them well and give thanks for the good things we now have in our lives, for all the love we have ‘right now’ and for all the love that is waiting for us on the other side of this experience, we need to break free from these chains, spread our wings and ‘FLY’ move on to pastures green, to a new life of positive possibilities, to live our lives as they should be lived without the burden and weight of these past events…’Now’ is where we should and need to be, always ‘Now’

If you are struggling with the past and need any help breaking free of these chains that hold you back, please reach out and I will be there for you, my sword at the ready breaking those chains that tie your wings my friends…

I Have Nothing to Write About Today…So Here’s My Post Anyway!

Published 14/03/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

1150414_561743850560131_1602734256_n

Well, the weekend is here again and I’m a little stuck for words, my mind is blank and I’m having difficulty thinking of ideas for inspirational posts! I guess it’s the old ‘writers block’, maybe my meditations are taking me to the point of total relaxation where absolutely nothing seems to pass through my mind…. or, maybe I just don’t have anything much to say!

This feeling of empty-ness worries me, I feel I owe you a post and when I cannot think of a subject to write about I do start to worry and I become a little anxious!…will I loose followers?, what will my friends think when I don’t post for a day?… and the anxiety becomes even worse if I don’t post for more than one day…

But then I relax and let my fingers do the walking, I introduced them to the keyboard and like magic they began to type, nothing in this post so far anyway has come from my mind, my fingers have just flowed around the keyboard doing a magical dance on the keys and this is what you’re reading right now…I have no idea of the theme, I have no idea what the title of this post will be and where the post will end up…I guess its just a few rambling words to you all, my blogging friends, friends from all around the world, friends of different races, religions, gender and age..but friends you are and I would miss not having you all in my life, you give me strength, you give me pleasure and sometimes I get to feel a sense of happiness when I hear that I have managed to help one of you get through a difficult time in your life.

For me blogging is not about finding followers, it’s not really about spirituality (although spirituality and my spiritual journey are very important to me), faith or religion…In my case its just the words and feelings from me, nothing special, just my thoughts on any given day, on any subject that I feel will bring you some joy, a post that may help you overcome a fear, guide you to a solution to a problem or maybe a video or music post that will bring a smile to your face.

Now, while I’m writing this post I too feel a sense of joy, because the words flowing from my finger tips are saying what is inside my heart, no thought has gone into these words and no pattern has been put together of the structure or the outcome, but the words are as I said from my heart, and to me that’s a great thing because I honestly believe that if we; as humans used our hearts to their full capacity of loving kindness each and every day, we would live in a world filled with love and peace…I know I cannot bring about world peace on my own through this humble blog but I do know that I can bring about change, I can make you smile, I can bring joy and a little happiness to your life even if only for the briefest moment in time, but time is the essence, time has no meaning so that smile that you have on your face right now is a blessing from God and hopefully brought to you from the words or pictures that I send you 🙂

So in essence I guess this post is about happiness, it is about loving kindness, it is about bringing about change in our lives, it is about helping others, it is about my own spiritual journey, it is about living life in the now, it is about caring, it is about humanity, it is about giving…….

Some days I sit and cry a little, I care passionately about our world, I care passionately about humanity, I care passionately about the environment and I wonder what more I can do to help those in need! Those tears then lead to meditation when I connect to my heart and I realise I can do more, do something simple, bring a smile to someones face, give thanks for what I have in my life and I feel good again, this feeling then brings about action…actions can be simple, they can be small and they can cost you nothing… but these actions will and do make a difference to someone or something in our world…so when ever you feel down…just stop…meditate, connect with your heart, give thanks for your life and give thanks for all you have in your life…this will lead you to open your eyes with a fresh view which will bring about change and you will do good, you will help someone, you will share a smile..and on and on the circle of loving kindness will go…

from me to you,

from you to someone,

from them to someone else

and on and on the love gets shared:)

Blessings of Love, unconditional Love

Do you love to Laugh?

We come into this world, innocent, non defined, happy and open to all influences, good or bad…..Laughing generally gets knocked out of us during our childhood until we reach adulthood with a very serious demeanour and outlook on the rest of our life….But, if you are one of the lucky ones that continues to laugh, who carries a smile on your face then good luck to you and remember to share this happiness with others because smiling and laughter are infectious….

Spread the joy mu friends…Laugh out loud and SMILE 🙂
