Time for some Conflict Resolution – a simple exercise

Let’s start today, to create an improved connection to the peace which is already within us, for we cannot expect peace in our world if we’re yet to create peace inside of ourselves.

peace-meditation-mindfulness-personal-development, a course in miracles

Sit down or stand with your feet firmly planted on the ground.

Notice all the parts of your body which touch something physical.

The seat below you, your feet on the ground, your back against a chair.

Breathe into your abdomen. Offer your body deep, replenishing breaths of air.

Do that for you.

Now use your breath to gather up everything which is attached to conflict inside of yourself.

Breathe into the conflict in your mind and thoughts.

Breathe into the resistance and tension in your body.

With each exhale start to breathe all resistance, tension and conflict out of your body.

Say ‘I release conflict from my body, mind and energy.’

Breathe it all out.

Continue with this exercise until you start to feel lighter.

Then say ‘I choose peace for myself and all others.’

Repeat, ‘I choose peace, I choose peace, I choose peace.’

Choose peace today, in everyway.

Wishing you a peace-filled day,

where miracles come your way,

Sharon

Wisdom to stop those Sugary-Binges

acceptance, love, binge eating, weightloss, how to lose weight, best, how toRecently I’ve been on a binge of sweet treats. The bait is chocolate, choc-chip cookies, cake….well basically if it has sugar and cocoa in it I’m hooked.

I’ve experienced an interesting although not uncommon journey with sweet foods and food in general. Years ago I placed a great deal of emphasis on body image. I wanted above all to be skinny so I deprived myself of so many different kinds of foods. I remember sprouting on and on about how much I hated butter, which was never actually true but it seemed to get me attention (which I liked…even though I pretended I didn’t) and get me out of eating anything with butter in it, which (god forbid) might be fattening…

Healing and therapy work helped me to gain a deeper understanding about myself and the universe, and through further discovery I’ve mostly healed this part of myself. Through this healing and acceptance, I’ve been able to eat without feeling guilty afterwards, and choose what I actually want to eat and not just what would have the least calories or be easiest to burn off. I’ve actually discovered how to love my gorgeous body, tummy, thighs and all! However from time to time I’d find myself binge eating. And not just binge eating anything, I’d developed a strong inclination toward sweet foods.

A year or so ago another shift occurred amidst a chocolatey-binge session. I was knee deep in a block of Whittaker’s chocolate when I started to honestly question what was really going on. A part of me told myself that it was harmless and okay, however there was another part of me that was still curious as to why I was fairly balanced with my eating habits, except for the odd occasion in which I’d uncontrollably fly off the handle and wind up acting like a choc-crack addict needing hit after hit after hit.

I reflected on myself and my habits for sometime however I didn’t feel as though I was having any blinding ah-har moments. But I kept at it, sitting in gentle curiousity of myself without allowing in any guilt or critical thoughts. I was set on understanding myself with compassion and acceptance. And it was through this gentle and kind enquiry that I learned something new. I was lead to go deeper into meditation and consult my higher wisdom for the insight I desired.

Deep breathing and meditation helped me to get past the pesky thoughts which were popping up and crowding my mind, and I used visualisation to set off on a journey to a meeting place. At that time I was working with my meeting place being in a beautiful garden sitting under a tree. I waited there in my mind and called in a Being or Guide to help me with this issue.

I felt a shudder rush up my spine and then straight back down again, then goose bumps formed down my right leg. I felt the angel Archangel Michael whom I work with a lot, come to me and so I mentally said hello. Hello dear child I heard back. I thanked Archangel Michael for coming then I began to ask him questions about my eating habits.

Why do I continually have bouts of binge eating chocolates and sweets which I can’t seem to control? What do I get from eating sweet food?

Almost immediately I received a profound and insightful response.

You tell yourself you love you through sweet foods.

I knew exactly what he was talking about. All the years of punishing myself and telling myself I was worthless through depriving myself of foods, now I was playing out a misguided paradox.

It also made sense why these urges would come and go. I could see why sometimes it was relatively easy to be mostly sugar-free but then why I would have periods where I would crack and eat chocolates everyday for a few days or even a week. It was these times I needed love.

When I felt the strongest urges for a binge on sweet foods these were the times I needed to pause and accept and love myself. So conversely when I needed to hear I love you and I wasn’t giving that to myself I would turn to the sweet stuff.

I thanked Archangel Michael and felt I knew what I had to do. Anytime I craved sweet foods I could know that what I really needed was love and work to give that to myself.

So as I go through this phase once more I have remembered the understanding I gained about myself and my needs. I need some self love. When I pause and focus on what I really need it seems clear that through the last week or so I have felt uncomfortable and have been feeling a lot of pressure as my partner and I move house. It is times of change or upheival that I (and most of us) extra self-love is required.

Already I feel the cravings dissipate and a deeper more sturdy warmth holding me instead. I will encourage more self-love through some deep breathing, a good selfie-hug and a meditation to connect back into my soul love energy within -which is sweeter than any chocolate every could be 🙂

Do you have habits which you feel as though you can’t control? What could they be telling you?

How To Work With Angels Self Healing

Angel Reminder

Have you invited your angels in today?

Every morning I say the following simple invocation:angel art, spiritual, help, how to, psychic, life, healing, love, prayer

I invite the angels into my day, in every way.
I ask that you help me and guide me,
and intervene for my highest good.

I welcome your presence and assistance,
and thank you for being in my wonderful life.

I finish by drawing a deep breath into my heart which leaves me smiling.

The angels/god/universe are always there for us to help and guide us, however it is up to us to invite them in. Their powerful forces are like our pit-crew, waiting to help and enhance our lives, however most of the time we don’t realise this and battle through relentlessly struggling on our own.

This prayer is a great way to start the day because it helps us to remember that we are not alone.

Now I invite you to give this invocation a go and see how you feel.

Observe what you notice over the day.

Have a glorious day!

With love, Sharon

One Card Reading with no cards

healing, help, love, heart, psychic, reading, oracle, cards, energyI am away on holidays visiting family and friends in Australia. I decided not to bring any oracle or tarot cards with me because I was planning on buying a new deck or two or three, as soon as I arrived however it just hasn’t happened yet. I love to connect into my guides and angels directly but often I also enjoy using a medium such as cards.

Last night as I sat in bed I really wanted to pull a card and receive a message of guidance before drifting off to sleep. As I didn’t have a deck with me I pulled out my journal instead. As soon as I opened to a fresh page the following question clearly made itself know to me – most likely along with a light bulb…

If I drew an oracle card right now what message would it have for me?

Right away I clearly heard: Relax Your Heart

And I didn’t just hear these words, I felt the message deep within me. I knew that this was a powerful message unique to me in this moment.

I wrote down my message and breathed into my heart. I felt walls that I didn’t even know were there begin to relax and my heart softened.

As usual, I surprised myself at how easy it all was and I pondered how often we reach for external help to receive guidance when an overflowing well is right there within us.

If you were to receive a message right now, what would that be?

Sometimes ya gotta laugh

chakra, healing, energy, meditation, reiki, how to, laugh, funny, cartoonWhen I started going to spiritual meetings, events and workshops I found that everyone seemed so serious. And for a while there was a part of me that joined in.

I thought that maybe we did need to be quiet, reserved and respectful when it came to meditation, healing and spiritual journeys. But the more I have ventured this territory on my own (and my own way) I’ve realised that you don’t have to be quiet, reserved and serious. Well more accurately, I’ve realised that you don’t have to be anything. It’s all up to you – to each of us. And we are all right whatever choose.

Some people like to be serious about it all (life), or about certain aspects of life, and some light-hearted – and they are both right and okay.

So a little while ago I gave myself the permission to be light. While scary at first I started to see that people resonated with this way of approaching spiritual work, meditation and healing, and I still attracted clients and groups of people to work with. And I’m sure that when I let go of even more of the ‘shoulds’ and ‘shouldn’ts’  I still abide by, I’ll attract even more.

Follow your Happy

What makes you happiest? 

I regularly reflect upon all of the things which bring me the most enjoyment, fulfillment and joy. A while ago I wrote these things down. Now I refer to this list and add to it, and I ensure I always do at least one or more things from my list everyday.

My list contains things which nourish all parts of me:
Spiritually, Emotionally, Physically and Mentally. 

On this list are things that bring me deep fulfillment such as connecting with friends and family, helping people through sessions, and connecting in with my spirit  guides and angels. And then my list also lists things which nourish me physically such as boxing and walking on the beach. And then it also includes meditation, reading and writing in my journal.

This kind of golden masterlist is a great way to keep you regularly connected into what makes your heart sing and what feeds your soul. 

It’s amazing how quickly we can string too many days together where we are not doing anything that brings us deep fulfillment, joy and happiness.

What is your soul yearning for?

What brings you happiness and joy?

What would it take for you to do one of these things today?

How to feel better about yourself

how to be happy, guilt, help, love, life, lifestyle, acceptance. radical, selfhelpParadoxes never ceases to amaze me. Our world is full of them and when I find another one I feel like I have figured out the next clue to help me navigate through this game of life.

The latest paradox I have been reflecting upon is how we constantly judge and define all the ways in which other people are different to us. But it is not just that we do this, the paradox lies in why we do this. Usually we judge how other people are different to us in an attempt to feel better about ourselves. (Whether we consciously recognise this or not is another story).

The paradox of it all is that it is through sameness and recognition of how we are alike that we can genuinely feel better.

It is through Oneness and through healing our feelings of separation that we can finally know who we really are. Through understanding who we are we can then love and accept ourselves wildly in every moment.

And that is how we can feel better. That is how we can feel so good that we can experience a life full of peace, joy and happiness. And love. Unfiltered, overflowing love. But it all starts within. Once we feel good about ourselves then we cease needing to judge others because we understand and accept them. This doesn’t mean condoning but it also means not condemning. Through wild self love and unreasonable self acceptance we cease needing to judge others at all. Because we no longer judge ourselves.

A little exercise in feeling better:

Close your eyes and let your mind wander to all the people who frustrate you, or who you deem to be nothing like you. C’mon, you know who they are. Let images or thoughts of anyone and everyone come into your mind. As they start appearing repeat the following statement:

I love and accept all of me. I love and accept all of me. I love and accept all of me.

How do you feel about these people now?

How do you feel about yourself?

Our Greatest Obstacle

quote, life, inspirational, inspire, insight, wisdom, happy, how to, development

Our perception that we understand what things are just because we remember a label or a definition, or that we know what we are doing, is the greatest blocker to experiencing what is actually occurring. I think the world would be a much freerer place if we just admitted that we don’t really understand anything AND that it’s okay not know!

We are all just here experiencing the same ride and we are all children of the cosmos – no matter what age we think we are! So let’s be kids again.

Give yourself permission to know that it’s okay not to know. Because it is. You are okay just as you are. We all are. So let’s give others a break too. We are all just giving this ‘life’ thing a go.

Let’s jump to compassion and understanding quicker than we jump to judgement.

What would your life be like if you let yourself be okay with not knowing everything?

What would your life be like if you let yourself be okay with not feeling as though you should know everything?

Is your jaw tense right now?

enlightenment, selfimprovement, self help, better life, how to, help, happy, happiness, stepsWhat would it take for you to lighten up?

A good place to start is to notice if you are tense. Often we can think we are relaxed when really we have just become used to being stressed!

So we’ll start with awareness.

Bring your awareness to your physical body. Is your jaw and mouth tight and tense Are your lips pursed? Are you shoulders raised slightly? Are you looking downward?

I catch myself many times a day holding a tense stance and it’s amazing how quickly you can feel better once you recognise how tight you are and then consciously release each part of your body. Often your mind follows suit with your physical body and you can experience a calmer state of mind by bringing awareness to your body first.

I start to lighten up by focusing on my physical presence: I loosen my jaw and let my mouth open slightly, moving my awareness to my shoulders, I move them around and let them fall into a relaxed, lowered position. Then I look upwards and let a small smile creep onto my face and look around. Sometimes I even gaze up toward the ceiling or the sky and then the final and most important step – I let out a big breath of air through my opened mouth. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!

Everything is okay. I am okay.

You are okay.

You can change how you feel at any moment. Sometimes this feels harder than other times, but it is always true. You don’t have to be bounding with happiness, but when we can lighten up everything becomes easier.
Let’s welcome ease and joy into our day.

I choose to smile at myself and the world. What do you choose for yourself?
