We see the obstacles but not the support – What’s real?

Posted in Trust The Universe

What if the obstacles we notice in life are borne out of a belief that life is a struggle and the truth is, we have far more support than we realised?

It’s been a long year for many of us.  There’s been a feeling of slow progress for many of my clients and for me as well.

If you’re familiar with numerology, you’ll know that 2016 is a year nine for the planet.

This means we’re at the end of a nine year cycle and next year a new cycle begins.

It’s a personal year nine for me as well because if you add my birth date and month to the year 2016, you get nine. Neato!

So, being the end of a cycle, this year has been all about completion, release and endings.  And since ‘nine energy’ is all about integrity, ambition, idealism and disillusionment (among other things), we’ve been seeing these sorts of themes come up on the world stage just a little….ahem, need I say ‘election’?

I’ve been slogging away selling what I do on Facebook and wondering when that constant stream of suitable and willing clients will finally appear….

I’ve been delivering my women’s sacred dance class in a variety of formats and venues throughout the year and I still can’t crack eight or nine participants per class…..

I guess the story I’ve been telling myself is very focused on the obstacles, the blocks and the challenges of reaching my audience and making this work I do into a proper income. What to do?

Well I reckon it’s time I changed my perspective and got real about everything that’s working in my favour.

  • We’ve been living in this amazing part of the planet for almost five years – dream fulfilled
  • I’ve been leading my women’s meditation circle for three and a half years
  • I’ve made some of the most gorgeous friends of my life – they are my tribe
  • I love my work and I have so much gratitude for the freedom I have in this lifestyle we’ve created
  • I’m constantly challenging myself to follow my creative inspiration, to enjoy life more and be more fearless
  • Many people support me and praise my work every week
  • My relationship with my husband and kids is on a firm footing – we love each other a lot
  • I’m in good health and I have tons of energy

So really, I don’t have an awful lot to complain about do I?

Those funny moments where the venue falls through, there’s no power supply for the music, the people don’t enroll in high numbers, I run late because of a family crisis or the elderly lady insists on barging into the hall before my class has finished are really just minor hassles, rather than substantial barriers to my success.

All in good time my child, all in good time.

We’ re all being supported by life much more than we realise.

Could Your Past Lives Be Serving You Better?

Posted in Live Your Passions

Do you believe in past lives?

Have you had momentary inklings of the times and places you’ve been in before you were here in this life?  Ever been to a completely foreign place and felt strangely at home?

Earlier this year when we went on a family holiday to France I was stunned at how completely comfortable I felt in Paris and was even more amazed at the heart-wrenching sensation I felt on the day we left to come back to Australia.

20160501_181201

I usually love it when I’m going home……..And, I’m not even a ‘big city person’!

So what if it’s true that we’ve had all these hundreds (maybe thousands) of other lives and that there are key themes from these times of old that are still playing out in our lives today?

One of the really cool techniques I’ve found myself using with clients for the past couple of years has been past life integrations.

Now this isn’t something I’ve learned or read about, it’s just kind of started happening in some sessions.

I’ll let the video take it from here……

So, what do you think?

I’d love to hear about your stories of past life memories and cool synchronicities and coincidences related to your feelings about some of your specific past lives.

Do you have strong emotional connections to a particular culture, country, region or landscape?

Maybe this is meaningful and just maybe there’s significance here for you to explore further.

When we integrate experiences and themes from other lifetimes into the present, we enrich our understanding of who and what we are and our limitless potential.

I’d be happy to talk it over with you.  Go here to read more about my sessions and please contact me if you feel called to make an appointment.

Enjoy your week everyone. Much love, Tricia

 

 

 

Energy Healing – What’s Actually Happening

Posted in Live From Intuition

Have you ever been to an energy healer?

If you’ve ever seen a brilliant counsellor, gifted massage therapist, devoted yoga teacher or compassionate family doctor, you’ve been in the presence of an energy healer.

That’s right, energy healing is not just the domain of Reiki masters, acupuncturists, kinesiologists or other practitioners with varied certifications such as Quantum Touch, The Bars, Feldenkrais, Bowen Therapy…

The list is long. I’ll cut to the chase.

Here’s my humbly proposed definition of energy healing:

Energy healing happens in any interaction where there is the presence of genuine empathy, love, compassion and the intention to be of assistance.  This effect is enhanced when there is no attachment to a specific outcome or to a rigid idea of success for all involved.

(Our pets are marvelous energy healers)

When more than nine years ago I began my studies in kinesiology, I was unconvinced that this was the right path for me.  I knew that I loved receiving the benefits of kinesiology, but the decision to study it felt more like stepping onto a barely-discernible path of vague possibility rather than striding confidently onto a smooth road of career certainty.

But hey, most of my study choices have felt like that.

When I chose psychology for my second university degree, it was only after failing to get into a course in occupational therapy and then exploring options as varied as nutrition, speech pathology, health promotion and social work that I finally and fairly half-heartedly settled for psych.

But then, that was more than twenty years ago….anyone else have any idea what they wanted to do when they were 22?

The purpose of this tale is twofold.

Firstly, I want to demystify what it is that I do, because amid the constantly evolving range of techniques and processes I use, what I’m essentially tapping into is a calm field – or channel if you like – of healing energy, that we all have access to.

We can all feel it when healing energy is present in an exchange with another person and it feels good to both parties.  That’s another secret I want to share:  When we access this type of energy, the healing flows both ways. The giver is the receiver and vice versa. Nice huh?

What I’m saying is that when I do my work, I’m recruiting divine assistance and accessing a wellspring of higher intelligence and healing powers beyond the physical realm.

At the same time though, I don’t want to understate the necessity of those of us working in the healing arts, to have studied a modality of some sort and to have honed a set of skills.  If it weren’t for my kinesiology training and the years I spent faithfully treating people using these skills, I wouldn’t have developed the powerful intuitive abilities I now use daily in my work and that I follow in every moment of my life.

Which brings me to the second purpose of this article, and that is to describe as best I can, how it feels to live completely from intuition.

My style of intuitive awareness is based in a knowingness which shows up as words or phrases that arrive unbidden in my body-mind.  I say body-mind because I don’t hear them like a regular thought.  I ‘hear’ them or sometimes ‘see’ them in my heart space.

Some people’s intuitive gifts (we all have them), are more visual or feeling-based.

I don’t want to keep you much longer because the word count is mounting and I wrote about this in detail in my article, How to Access Your Intuition – Three Steps, but I’ll offer this:

I listen within, I trust what I hear and I’m prepared to change my mind, my plans and my driving route at a moment’s notice when urged from my intuition.

I’ll leave you with a neat little example:

This week my 14 year old son came home one day with a completely seized up neck.  He was in a lot of pain and was very distressed.

I immediately did what I could to help him feel better and then I realised why, that very afternoon I’d felt the urge to phone our local osteopath and book an appointment.  She gets completely booked up each week and I’d been able to secure a session the following afternoon. So my son got to receive some amazing help the very next day.

Now you might say, “Phew, that was lucky!”

What I say is, “Phew, thank goodness I listened to my intuition.”

One session with our wonderful osteo and he’s on the road to recovery.  We all have these moments don’t we? Just imagine how it would feel if life always flowed like this.

Sure, crappy things still happen, but we move through those challenging times all the better when our intuition is firing and being utilised.

Food for thought?

Much love to you, Tricia

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Unlock Your Creativity and Find Your Power

Posted in Live Your Passions

I’m not sure what’s happened to me these past few weeks but I think it may have started with getting a new camera for my birthday.  I love my new camera and the much funkier photos it can take compared to those from the compact digital model I’ve used for the past ten years.

I really love my new camera.

IMG_0090

Have I felt like writing a blog post?  No, not at all.  And this feels weird because I’ve written a post almost every week for four and a half years and then nothing. No inspiration?  Well, there were still ideas but they felt old, already covered, not exciting or worth writing.

Then a couple of weeks back I did a painting workshop…

My first ever painting.
My first ever painting.

And bOOm! Suddenly painting is my new passion and the camera’s been left sitting on the shelf.

I got it out today and gave it a pat though because I’m sure photography and painting will become great friends in my life before too long.

Now don’t go thinking this means my aim here is to become a professional artist or photographer, no, that’s not it.  I’m just loving exploring these crafts as mediums through which to experience my world (both inner and outer), and enjoying being immersed in the process of creation.

One of the amazing ways I connect with the women I coach in my individual sessions is to help them acknowledge their creative selves.

I’ve seen so many women instinctively respond with a shake of the head when I talk about creativity.  They tell me; “Me? No, I’m not very creative.”

And yet this is the sort of guidance I receive for so many of them…

Your unique creative energy is the source of your power to make your life better.

This is not about us all becoming professional artists, writers or healers (because healing is a creative art in my world too).

No, this is about each of us embracing the reality that when we are engaged in any creative activity and we open up to all the possibilities that moment of being ‘in the process’ can offer us, we tap into a wellspring of creativity around how we want our lives to feel and look in a more global sense.

I’m pretty sure a lot of my new creative confidence has sprung from the momentum I’ve created this year by running my weekly women’s dance class.  Spontaneous, free-flowing dance is wonderful for the body, mind and emotions.

Any type of creative expression opens our awareness to more of who we are and creates a deeper connection to what we are here to do, be and feel in our lives.

All you need to do is find a creative outlet that appeals to you.  Try something out, see if you like it.  I’ve been recommending those adult colouring-in books to clients for over a year now and suddenly they’re everywhere. Something like this is a great starting point….  You, a cup of tea, a clear table with plenty of light, a colouring page and some good quality coloured pencils. Voilá!  You’ll have made something pretty in no time at all.

Here’s some other ideas:

  • join a local choir
  • learn a musical instrument
  • start writing a daily journal
  • do a painting or drawing workshop
  • dance around your lounge room to loud music
  • take some private singing lessons
  • learn to sew,knit or crochet

Learning something new at any stage of life can be an uplifting and very enlightening experience.  You’ll learn a lot about yourself, how you feel in your creativity and chances are, if you’re learning in a group, you’ll find other like-minded souls to share the journey with.

Taking the first step can be as simple as asking the universe for guidance and then seeing what next pops into your awareness via an email, Facebook post, invitation from a friend or a notice board flyer. Say ‘yes’ and watch the magic happen.

A New Moon Blessing – Guided Audio

Our words are very powerful.

We create our lives from our word-form thoughts, our written word and our spoken word.

When we utter a blessing for ourselves and others it holds great power and can influence our lives in magical ways.

At every new moon we are given extra support and encouragement from the universe to start again, set some fresh goals and create our very own new beginning.

The silver princess flower essence helps us with life purpose and direction.

Four Steps to Coaching Yourself to Greatness

Posted in Self-Care and Self-Healing

You know you’re being called to step up and into the next brilliant chapter of your life right now don’t you?

Anything holding you back?

If you’re like me and have been on the so-called, “spiritual development” pathway for a few years, I’ll bet you’re completely fed up with overcoming yet another self-limiting belief, squashing those pesky self-sabotaging behaviours and uncovering those ancient fears that pop up every time you feel like you’re finally making progress.

We’re full of it aren’t we?

Well yes, and no. Yes because we are complex, flawed and multi-layered and no because we are amazing, resilient, here for a reason and it really is all good.

Enjoying an Autumn beach visit with my daughter.
Enjoying an Autumn beach visit with my daughter.

What’s required here is a shift of mindset around what it truly means to be a moderately enlightened person who has a great life, lots of friends, fun times, good health and laughter.

I’ve made some rapid and much appreciated leaps forward within my inner landscape these past few weeks and then more stuff rises to the surface right?

My dreams have been showing me a glitch that needs fixing before I can move ahead properly into my expanded business, my book being published and my face being on the cover of…well maybe not that.  But anyway, in these dreams, I’m attending events with my current mentors, having a great old time and then my children appear in the dream and they’re all thin and undernourished, or a washing line appears in front of me and I begin unpegging the washing. Strange? Well not really.

What I feel these dreams were revealing was a belief at the unconscious level that motherhood and career are incompatible.  I say ‘were’ because this morning on my beach walk I clarified it and transformed it. I used a technique created by the wonderful Dee Wallace where you simply claim out loud from your ‘I AM’ presence (higher self), whatever it is you would like to create.

I said something like this:

“I claim from my I AM presence in this moment of now that I am fully balanced, free, joyful and successful in my roles of mother, teacher, healer, wife, daughter, friend and in myself free of all roles. And so it is. Thank you”.  

Sound easy enough?

Here are some steps to get you there:

  1. Begin with an attitude of loving kindness for yourself. Try Louise Hay’s mirror exercise where you look into a mirror first thing in the morning and gazing into your eyes say, “I love you your name” at least three times. Keep this up until it feels true and then do it some more.
  2. Get to know what you really want to create in your life from what you most love doing.
  3. Know yourself well enough to be able to read your own dreams, listen to insights from within while meditating, or use journalling, painting, singing, dancing or walking as self-exploration tools.
  4. Understand and accept that you are the most powerful person in your life and if you want to make changes in how you live, then simply begin claiming want you want to create as a reality in the present moment.

That’s it for now lovely people. And remember, I love helping women get to know themselves better and deeper because I know it leads to a happier life.  Consider booking a phone or in-person coaching and healing session with me and you’ll see quick results.

It’s a New You

Posted in Trust The Universe

The rain is falling.  Autumn has settled in and before we know it there’ll be a fire in the hearth and extra blankets on the beds.  The seasons, as they play out in the natural world, bring us vivid demonstrations of change, renewal, stagnation, decay and growth.

IMG_9636

As I see the world outside my window change, I also feel I must be changing too.

Nothing stays the same, everything must change

How do you handle change?

Do you seek it out eagerly with an optimistic grin?

Do you pretend it’s not happening and drag your heels every step of the way?

I guess we all do a bit of both.  Some change we beckon with open arms, other change (when it’s not what we’d expected), requires a little more time and adjustment before we fully accept it.

The change of season encourages us to get out different clothes, maybe buy some new things, and clean out and organise our wardrobe.  We exercise, eat and entertain ourselves differently from Winter to Summer.  It’s fun right? Nice to mix it up, have a change?

As a result of my passion for being connected to nature, I respond to the changing seasons with excitement and wonder.  The first rains turn the brown earth into a barely-there green tinge and then a lush carpet of grass for our local kangaroos to feast on.  Locals who depend on rain for their water supply clap their hands together in glee and we town dwellers enjoy turning our garden reticulation off for a few months.

So, whether you’re in northern, southern or tropical climes, nature shifts and aspects of your life shift with it.

For me, noticing nature helps me to be in deeper contact with myself.  I’m calm when I’m outdoors and I gain lots of insights and inspiration as I walk and sit among the trees or upon the granite rocks by the water.

Nature heals us and brings us home to ourselves.

And nature isn’t just what’s here on Earth.  The natural world includes our moon, the sun and all the stars and planets. The vast cosmos influences and changes us day by day, year by year.

The two eclipses we’ve just witnessed created some beautiful energetic openings for us to release the past (yes, again) and shift anew into the lives we’ve dreamed of and planned for over the last few years.  Each morning since the lunar eclipse on Saturday night I’ve woken from dreams that have flushed out old fears, pulled together past and current relationships and revealed remnants of deeply held insecurities.

I’ve found it hard to stick with my meditation routine and have felt the need to clear out cupboards, put together the photo book from our holiday to Spain and take a break from my work schedule.

20130517_103213

Early this morning I went for a grey-skied walk to the ocean and sat with shoes off on a rocky outcrop above the water.  I chanted the Om mantra, stared at the sea and drank in the clear, cool air.  And I felt new.

You’re new too, just take a moment to pause and feel it.

I’m a Healer and So Are You

Posted in Self-Care and Self-Healing

Do you realise that in every moment of every day your amazing body is healing itself and your energy is doing the same with your energetic self?

And, here’s the piece I really want to share, whenever you are with another person or even thinking of them, you have the capacity to heal them too, simply by holding a feeling of love for them.  We also do this for the land and the entire natural world including all the animals we encounter when we feel appreciation for them. Plus, this process is reciprocal, when you give, you receive.

Now this isn’t about effort, being a perfect example of loving energy, or being attached to curing or saving anyone. This is just what we naturally do as human beings and we need not be concerned about the outcome. But since we’re doing it anyway, why not acknowledge this beautiful power, and do it with clear and loving intentions.

When we love nature it loves us right back.
When we love nature it loves us right back.

It all begins with self-love and the understanding that we are all perfect just as we are.  This is not about making things better because something is wrong.  It’s about embracing all that is present in a more loving way so we elevate ourselves and everyone else into more comfortable and graceful lives.

Confused?  Hmm, I’ll try saying it another way…

When my daughter was almost four, we discovered she had asthma.  The diagnosis meant a hospital visit in the early hours of the morning and a worrisome twenty-four hours while the doctors brought her breathing capacity back to normal with regular Ventolin inhalations.

As this little episode coincided with my emergence into the world of natural therapies both in my work and in my approach to caring for the health of my children, I felt I could have a go at curing her with a combination of kinesiology, flower essences and a few other tricks I’d learned along the way.

Well apparently this was not to be, because seven years later, although her experience of asthma is now mild and occasional, my efforts to fix my little girl all up and make it go away did not succeed.

What I eventually concluded was that it was not my role to make this illness completely disappear for my daughter. I’m sure some of what I did from the intention of love, helped her recover from her bouts of sickness and reduced the severity of the episodes, but for whatever mysterious reason, she is somehow meant to experience this condition. End of story.

We serve ourselves and those we love best by being in complete acceptance and love regarding any situation we find ourselves or them in, and then simply loving into that reality.  That’s it, that’s all and yes, we do make a difference when we can do this with minimal attachment to what happens next.

For me there was a lot of learning to be had around releasing my need to be the perfect mother, to have perfectly healthy children and to be able to cope gracefully with caring for a sometimes uncooperative small child while she needed to be at home from school to get better.  Ahh, parenthood, the greatest teacher I’ve had.
