Power of Saying NoI’m not sure when you will be reading this, but I’m writing it not long after the start of a new calendar year. No this isn’t a post about the importance of setting New Year resolutions – I’ve never really gone for that.

I like to think that I have the ability to make important decisions for my well-being at any time of the year!

The reason this has come up for me now is that I went camping over New Years and really got back to basics. As I strolled knee deep in the crystal clear waters of Station Creek, with is golden sandy bottom and a gentle ocean tide making it perfect to lay back and float down, I re-realized how much I enjoy getting away from it all.

The computer, work, deadlines, expectations, commitments, the phone, the TV … all of it. It’s not that any of those things are bad by themselves, but for me, when they are a constant pressure for too long I get blinded from my life’s true joys.

So the solution would appear to be easy – Take more holidays and find my happy place.

But there is one major hurdle. I’m too busy.

Sixth SenseI encourage you all to spend a moment to sit and relax and listen to that still, small voice…

What is it, this feeling, this instinct we all have?

Your sixth sense enables you to know. To know more than your five common senses tell you.

It is a seemingly intangible thing, yet when we feel it, we know it.

DimensionsA lot of material has been channeled in the new-age community about the different dimensions and ascension.

But what are these dimensions?

The Earth has multiple dimensions, which remain invisible until you are vibrating at the same frequency as that particular dimension.

Dimensions aren’t so much a place, but a state of being and vibration.

The earth is still vibrating physically in the 3rd dimension, but its ethereal body is vibrating in the 4th dimension. Eventually the physical will merge with the spiritual and become a 4th dimension body and so on, until the earth becomes a 5th dimensional planet.

Meditation PracticeDo you think the caterpillar knows what it will become as it retreats from the world into its cocoon?

Or it is a grand gesture of faith – and it simply trusts that everything will be OK in time?

The reason that I ask is that I have metaphorically been in a cocoon over the last several months and I am wondering what is to come.

Energy VibrationIf we strip everything back to the basics, everything is energy. Everyone has a unique energy vibration that is constantly changing with our mood and the food we eat. What is quite interesting is that we actually eat food on a subconscious level that matches our vibration at the time.

Cherokee Sweat LodgeI have just I experienced my first Native American Sweat Lodge.

It has been on my list of ‘things to do’ for some time, as my ears would prick whenever I would hear someone sharing their experience, but with divine timing, it was obviously perfect for me to experience it … now.
 
Bobby Runningfox is a full-blooded Cherokee Native American living on the Gold Coast of Australia.

I know that he is very well established and respected in the local spiritual circles, and after a personal healing session with Bobby several months ago, I felt very secure taking this step along my spiritual path with him as my guide.

Meaning of my Favorite ColorEvery color in the visible light spectrum has a different frequency.

It’s no coincidence that rainbows always appear to us in the order of Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet. It is a scientific fact that each color vibrates, or exists with a different energy.

As color is everywhere, we take for granted the effect it has on our lives. But just because we are not aware does not mean that we are not influenced by the powerful energies each color has.

The use of color with specific intent has been used for centuries – but at no time more than now.

Being PresentI often hear people say, “If only I had time to do what I need to do to grow spiritually.”

I have come to understand that people tend to compartmentalize who they are by ‘where they are and what they are doing’.

Who hasn’t tried to improve themselves by saying, “I will try to put aside some time every day to be present.”

Having been thinking on this I think, ‘Wow! What a way to load more pressure on yourself in a life that is often too busy – where time just seems to move faster and faster.’

I really believe that walking with spirit is the essence of who we are and not meant to be turned on at times.

Meditation Spirit of GaiaThe Spirit of Gaia is the sacred consciousness of the planet, also referred to in some indigenous cultures as Mother Earth.

It is a belief that there is spirit in everything; in each blade of grass, in each petal of a flower…

There is energy and consciousness in each drop of water and each grain of sand.

Gaia is evolving as humanity is evolving. It is an interlinked partnership. As humanity shifts to a higher vibration and changes, so does the planet.

There is a lot of physical earth movement and changes occurring at the moment, as Gaia is shifting and aligning her energy to hold and support this higher vibration.

KarmaA guest post by Karen Ellyard.

I would like to share this story with you – Author unknown.

One day a man saw an old lady stranded on the side of the road. Even in the fading light of the day, he could see she needed help. He pulled up in front of her Mercedes and got out. His Pontiac was still sputtering when he approached her.

Even with a smile on his face, she was worried as he approached. No one had stopped to help for the last hour or so. Was he going to hurt her? He didn’t look safe; he looked poor and hungry.

He could see that she was frightened, standing out there in the cold. He knew how she felt. It was those chills which only fear can put in you.

He said, “I’m here to help you, ma’am. Why don’t you wait in the car where it’s warm? By the way, my name is Bryan Anderson.”

ReincarnationWhen writing of spiritual development, it helps to find simple analogies to give perspective to deeper esoteric principals. With that in mind, I ask you to please consider the humble light bulb.

In essence there are two forms working together.

The physical structure that gives it a real-world presence and the energetic component of light.

An outer shell – and an inner life force. Sound familiar?

ReincarnateWhen we reach the end of our life it is said that we get to review our life. For me this rings true.

Our spirit guides are there with us and we review our life, from start to finish, kind of like on a big cinema screen.

We see and feel how we have influenced others in positive and negative ways throughout our lives and we see the lessons we learnt or didn’t learn.

We see things from a higher perspective, how spirit views things.

Living With AbundanceI would like to share with you my thoughts on gratitude and how powerful this can be in your life.

Gratitude is a key factor in attracting abundance and happiness into your life.

When we come from a place of sincere gratitude our energy is one of acceptance and harmony.

This energy attracts positive additional energies to us.

Divine Will and Free WillIn our human experience we have chosen and been gifted with free will. We have the choice to do what we please in life.

Often our choices are determined by our beliefs and our state of mind and emotions. Spirit wishes to teach humanity that we have two choices, a higher choice guided by spirit, or a lower choice guided by the ego.

Spirit does not judge us by the quality of choices we make in life but on a higher level we essentially do.

When you walk the spiritual path, gradually your will becomes aligned with the will of spirit, god, or whatever you perceive it to be. Often this is a gradual process over many years, we still have an ego, but it becomes less of a driving force in our lives.

Path to EnlightenmentThe path to enlightenment is often called a path because it is a journey through time and space … You don’t simply wake up one day enlightened.

It takes time and dedication to the spiritual path over many years and lifetimes. Everyone is at different stages of enlightenment on the planet. Some are more advanced in areas and some are still in infancy in areas.

Life on earth supports enlightenment through the challenges, tests and trials we are faced with throughout our life.

Healing with CrystalsCrystal Healing is a very ancient form of therapy and at this moment it is experiencing a new enthusiasm.

Crystal Healing uses the innate and natural ability of Crystals to induce healing, by focusing and balancing our bodies, amplifying our minds and thoughts, and raising our vibration.

I know what some of you may be thinking… Seriously, does Crystal Healing work???

Yes, yes, and YES, it definitely does!

The Counting PrincipleAs my friend re-filled his water bottle, he took a marble from one container and placed it into another. I asked what he was doing and he explained to me it was part of the ‘Counting Principle‘.

For every goal you can make quantifiable – you will be naturally driven to improve.

I realized that human beings are geared for growth.

The time we spend in school is learning lessons, sitting tests, and progressing when we have proven our worth. Our applicable intelligence is valued on a scale with reference to the pass-mark. If I was a C student and now I’m a B, I am rewarded by my support network and by the increase in self-worth.

Religion Verses SpiritualityI have been told several times by psychic mediums, that in a past life I was a Catholic Priest. For me this rings true.

I also feel I have karmic baggage from this life as a priest that I am clearing in this life. Funny enough in this life I don’t consider myself religious at all, religion doesn’t really resonate with me.

I consider myself a spiritual person. I believe in a supreme creator, God, ET’s, our higher nature and spirit in many forms.

This article is not to convince you or win you over in one way or the other, as ultimately, we all have free choice in what we believe.

ForgivenessMost of us have, at one time or another, been hurt by the words or actions of others.

The problem is; if we hold onto the emotions of anger, bitterness, pain or sometimes even hatred, it can have a devastating effect on our own lives – both on our health and the circumstances we attract to ourselves.

Every thought we have turns to energy and fills our aura – thus affecting what and who comes into our life.
