Hello, my beautiful friend,
How are you today? How is your day looking? Do you have lots of lovely things planned to nurture yourself and create ease and joy?
My heart is feeling so full today, full of love, and full of infinite possibility. I feel gentle, tender and open, a little like the beautiful spring flowers that are blossoming open all around us in nature, and yet, too, there is a powerful energy of strength and clarity I am experiencing too.
It feels like magic is in the air.
I spent the early part of the day in meditation, practicing Conscious Connected Breathing, and some beautiful somatic movement, my heart feels open and every cell in my body tingling!
I have beside me now, as I write, a freshly brewed coffee to sip, an orange to munch on, and some pretty flowers to gaze dreamily upon from time to time.
I had many heartful conversations yesterday with beautiful, consciously aware friends, and my parents, it was such a joy to chat, laugh and be of support to one another.
One of the topics that came up consistently was in regard to ‘doing the work’ and what that actually means, and what it looks like for each of us.
Perhaps you have heard the phrase, ‘Doing the Work’, bandied about in the Spiritual and Self-development communities?
To me the process of doing the work involves diving deep within, to uncover the wounds of my past, any beliefs that no longer serve me, and any ideas of separation and wrongdoing, so that these areas of discord may be resolved, healed and transformed in the light of love.
And in doing so being able to show up more fully, self-actualised, and create a life of ease and grace, from conscious choice where we are no longer tripped up by the past.
Have you explored your own core wounds?
Have you found that you have certain areas of your life that seem to go on a loop, perhaps there is a particular pattern that plays out, repeating itself over and over?
This may well be related to a core wound that needs resolving and transforming.
Doing the work takes great courage and self-compassion, it is working with our shadow selves, and is certainly not spiritual bypassing!
Thankfully there are so many different and effective modalities to support us in this process.
Modalities such as, to name just a few, NLP, Psych-K, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), inner child work, journaling, energy psychology, meditation, conscious Connected Breathing, TRE (Trauma Releasing Exercises), yoga nidra, embodiment practices, you may have found that practicing yoga may set you on the path of inner awakening.
Personally, I have, and do use combinations of all these modalities and practices to support myself in my own journey. Either by myself or under the guidance of a mentor.
I particularly love supporting others in the same process, there is a beautiful moment of awakening that occurs when the spark of truth and understanding is lit, I know that I am no longer (and the clients I work with) are never the same from that moment of awakening onwards.
If you are new to this work, then I would highly recommend that you reach out for support with someone who can hold space for you during those periods of healing and change.
I believe that when we heal and transform ourselves, then the whole world around us transforms.
If we have developed ourselves beyond previous conditioning, then the energy waves of that resonate out into the field of pure potentiality all around us, therefore, everything is affected by our own healing and expansion into love.
We really can change the world one person at a time.

Imagine this, you are in the throes of a spiritual awakening, your heart is healing and you no longer believe in separatist thoughts and ideas, you wake up and realise that you are not the victim of life, but rather you, we are all, in co-creation with the One Mind.
Suddenly you find yourself in a position of power, power over your own thoughts, you can feel your energy expanding and flowing, your heart full and your senses alive! The veils of illusion are lifting, and everything is coming into sharper focus. You now know that you are not alone. You know that you can choose again with conscious awareness.
This personal awakening is radiating out all around you, invisibly touching those you live with and love, your entwined energies are beautifully and seamlessly affected by your growth.
