We, collectively as human beings, seem to live in an artificially constructed system. As soon as we are born, our days start to be ‘numbered’. We are registered under a name and as having a date and a time of birth. The next entry into the system is when we start pre school. That is when all of our natural cycles end. We can’t sleep when we’re tired. We can’t eat when we’re hungry. We can’t say how we feel when we’re feeling it. We are expected to achieve certain levels of knowledge, in order to be allowed to move up a grade. We have to behave in a certain way, in order to be accepted and deemed as fitting in. We spend a certain number of years in primary school, then secondary school or college. Some go on to university before starting to work.

All of this is expected of us and to fulfil it at a certain time in our life. Otherwise, we ‘fall behind’, we ‘don’t fit in’, we become ‘a failure’ or an ‘outcast’, we are casted out of the norm. I hate labels, but in this case they might illustrate my point.

So, what happens to our feelings, needs and wishes as we grow up? What happens to our natural cycles of feeling happy and showing it, eating when feel hungry, going for a rest when feel tired?

Unless you can survive without making a living, you have to put your feelings and needs aside, and ignore them all until you have a moment for yourself.

Or, at least, that’s what I thought life has to be like for me.

What I’ve recently discovered is that I owe it to myself to re connect to my natural flow. I am not going to ignore how I feel or suppress my hunger or tiredness. It is a human right, in fact every living being’s right to BE THEMSELVES. We tend to our plants’ needs by giving them the right amount of water, sunlight and food, for them to thrive. We look after our pets by giving them the appropriate food, shelter, water, attention, and love, for them to have a happy life.

Therefore, we deserve what we give to everyone and everything else. No more, no less. Just to respect our body when it cannot take any more stress, or to take a moment when we need it, to have a snack when we’re hungry (if we can’t have a proper meal), to pamper ourselves every once in a while, to reach out to family and friends to tell them that we are thinking of them and that we love them.

Otherwise, life passes us by, going through it’s natural cycles of youth, adulthood and old age and we find ourselves looking back one day wondering what was the purpose of our existence.

To me, our purpose is to ‘serve’ our society by making a positive difference as well as tending to our own needs, or going with the flow. Because, if I’m not true to myself, if I’m not listening to my own mind, body and soul, it is just as if I don’t exist at all.

Peace and love to everyone,

We all know in a physical sense what and where our heart is.

But, in a spiritual sense, we have two hearts- our main Heart Chakra and a Higher heart Chakra. Our Heart chakra is our main life energy entry point, that energetically feeds our whole aura.

Our Higher Heart chakra is located just behind our breast bone, above our Heart chakra. It is the seat out our soul!

Therefore, in an energetic sense, when we are ready to open our heart, it needs to be heart and soul. Otherwise, our feeling is ‘half hearted’.

So, how do we open our hearts to love?

I can only talk from my personal experience and here it goes:

It takes faith, strength, trust, conscious effort and A LOT of clearing (past hurt, pain and heart break).

Once we’ve decided that we want to FEEL again, we have to surrender to God’s/Source’s/Universe’s will to guide us through the necessary process of facing up to all of our past hurt and pain. Remember the Yin and the Yang, the good with the bad, no pain-no gain. Well, it very well applies to love too.

We cannot love if we keep our pain buried deep within our heart and soul, or if we have shut the whole thing down. There are no two ways about it- our pain has to be faced one last time, in order to be released forever.

Pain comes into our life to teach us a lesson, however big or small. By facing it, we accept that it was there, what it has taught us (so that we don’t allow ourselves to get into the same situation) and that it is time that it goes away, as it has served it’s purpose.

Do whatever it takes, in order to release the pain- exercise, sing, dance, write, draw, go for walks, meditate, talk to friends, listen to music, a.s.o. Whatever works for you to feel better, do it. And that is the key:

DO WHATEVER FEELS GOOD.

The more that you release, the better you feel, the more that you open up your heart and let more of the good in. Step by step, you come to the point of completely loving and accepting yourself and everyone around you.

It might seem like a lot of work, but it is definitely worth it.

Just imagine the feeling of joy, happiness, fulfilment, wholeness, calm being an every day part of you.

It is a state of bliss that you never want to leave. That is enlightenment. That is the only way forward, beautiful souls.

Lots of love,

Angela x.

As I was resting on my sofa and looking out of my living room window, I noticed wood pigeons building a nest.

I’ve seen them building nests over the years every year in a different hiding space. One was arranging the twigs that the other one was constantly bringing to it’s partner. When the nest is finished, they lay their eggs, then take turns in looking after them. When the eggs hatch, they take turns in feeding the young and themselves. Then they teach their young all of the life skills and watch them leave the nest, maybe never to see them again. And they keep on repeating the cycle year after year, for the rest of their lives.

That made me ask myself:

  • How come that birds never worry about their young after they’ve left?
  • How can they leave building a nest for the last minute?
  • How come that they don’t have supermarkets or plant their food, yet they always have as much as they need?
  • How can they not worry about the next day or the foreseeable future?
  • How come that they find time to sing every day? and many more questions.

I guess that’s why there are sayings like: “As free as a bird”, “As happy as a lark”, “Bird’s eye view”, “Birds of a feather”, a.s.o. I wasn’t the first person to notice that we can learn from our feathered friends.

Be as it may, animals seem to know and understand the cycles of nature and just go with the flow. They feel when a natural end to a situation has come and they simply accept the change. And live on happily, saluting the Sun every morning and singing it’s lullaby every evening. Meanwhile, us humans think that we know better and go to bed full of worry about the next day.

Who’s the cleverer in this game of life? Us or nature? I am betting on nature any time.

Something has been playing on my mind ever since I was told it. On the way to the airport, after a family visit, my mother said something. In the context of the type of a person that I am, she said:”You’re just a dreamer, you and people like you”.

Despite it being a matter of fact type of a comment, without any hidden intent, it got to me.

Is being a dreamer a bad thing? Is it really better to always just face the facts and deal with problems, people and situations as they arise? And what about dreaming big?

How many dreamers are out there right now? I would love to hear from you.

My dream world is a perfect version of my life, everything that I want, feel, that I am. There are no limits to what can happen, time and space do not apply. I am not judged, I don’t have to explain myself, or wait for something to happen. I just think of something and it’s there. Even if I keep thinking about the same thing, it always surprises me with a new way that it comes across. It’s always fresh and new.

Some would say it’s idealistic, unrealistic, a waste of time.

To me, I am happiest when I daydream. It is a peaceful, beautiful, non judgmental, all accepting, an unconditional world. My best ideas come from it. I am free to come and go as I like and stay as long as I feel inclined to.

If someone took my dreams away, they would take a huge part of me with them. And I would have to face this 3D world, the harsh reality, the everyday happenings, without my escape, my safe space, my cushion, my perfect world, my preferred situation.

No matter how good or bad my life seems to be, I can feel my dream world waiting for me, calling me to come back to it. It is gentle, safe, loving, patient, giving, bright, optimistic. It is that calm, safe space deep inside of me that I couldn’t be without. That daily experience is keeping me sane, filled with patience and hope. I dare to say that it feels like heaven. Unlike the “real”, everyday world.

No matter what people say, I will always be a dreamer. God created me a dreamer for a reason (Lady Gaga-I was born this way). And that is something that nobody can challenge without losing the argument.

Sending you lots of love and blessings,

Angela.

On 15th April, I went to a charitable fundraising event. Funds were collected for two charities. One was set up to help look after people with the Motor neurone disease.

A young man gave a speech which was about his brother who suffers from it. At one point he said (what was told to them by doctors) that it was incurable. That sounded hopeless, as if anyone with that disease of any age, background, heritage, ability, etc. has identical destiny. There is no cure and therefore, let us help those people feel as comfortable and looked after as possible, until their premature death.

Now, that struck a cord in me. I felt like standing up and saying that there is always hope. But I didn’t.Not just because it would embarrass my family who were also present, but because people weren’t prepared to hear it. And it wasn’t my pitch.

That reminded me of how and why I started researching into available alternatives to conventional healthcare. It was when my son was born and suffered from various food allergies and everything that accompanies them (digestive issues, skin problems, pain and discomfort). I had to switch my intuition on, as a newborn baby can only cry if something isn’t right. It was down to me to find out the cause and to find an alternative way so that they don’t suffer. Conventional doctors weren’t able to help much, so my journey into the word of alternative medicine and general clean lifestyle began. I ventured into a Chinese medicine practitioner’s office and never looked back. I also took a chance on Homeopathy, which also worked beautifully. I had to read all food labels when food shopping, in order to avoid the allergens. It was a minefield at the beginning, as I discovered that milk was in 80% of all products that we were buying, as well as eggs and soya.

Now that my son is old enough, he is continuously choosing what is best for him (he is a vegan now and has embraced the world of sport and general exercise).

Therefore, there is always hope and a way forward. I know that some conditions and diseases are more life threatening and serious. But, my son’s condition would have deteriorated and caused some of those serious diseases if we didn’t find what works for him. That is my point.

There is always a way. We just need to go within and let our inner feeling guide us.

Namaste.

There are so many energetic changes happening around us and inside of us every day.

We might be aware of the physical symptoms of these energetic shifts (like headaches, dizziness, nausea, tiredness, irritability,etc.).

In order to allow the old energy to be cleared and the new flow to be received,we have to keep grounded.

I have a morning routine that I practise as soon as I get out of bed.

I ask to be connected to my Earth Star chakra (it’s below our Base chakra) in the highest possible frequency for me throughout the day.

If at any point I feel disconnected, I stop and stand up. I then imagine that I am a tree with roots going from my feet deep under ground, all the way to the centre of the Earth. After a few seconds, you should feel the soles of your feet and wether you use the whole of the sole when standing. If not, adjust/shuffle your feet so that it feels like the whole of your sole is in contact with the floor. That should keep you in balance regardless of how busy you are that day.

With much love,

Angela.

Today has been a day full of powerful lessons/reminders.

I met up with someone that reminded me of the importance of having energetic boundaries.
No matter how much we care for someone, taking on their stress doesn’t help them and it certainly doesn’t help us.

I was born an empath and have always thought that empathising, i.e. tuning into someone’s feelings is what caring people do.
What that does is leave the recipient full of stress and worry about their friend, loved one, whoever it is.
After that particular meeting I was a shivering wreck.
Therefore, I need to WORK ON CREATING ENERGETIC BOUNDARIES.

Because I was out of alignment, two other people contacted me asking questions and favours of me. I could feel a build up of anxiety and had to stop all that I was doing and sit down in a meditation with a large Amethyst cluster.

Why do we put a pressure on ourselves to please others?

A lesson that has been with me for some time now is:

LET GO OF THE DESIRED OUTCOME.

I am working on integrating it.

 

What has also been emerging, as of yesterday is: RESPONSIBILITY for my thoughts and deeds.

In order to grow up, i.e. mature and to be able to manifest for my highest good, I need to accept the part that I play in creating my daily life.

And, at the same time, remembering the bigger picture (my contract and personal mission).

Today I decided to let go and let flow. I literally can’t take in any more information to process.

Too many updates, too much to let go- then take in and over and over again.

So, I am letting go completely. Whatever comes next is meant for me and I will deal with it when it comes. Not before.

Right now, I am hurting. My son has expressed his feelings about our family life and I have realised that I feel the same.

That has been our family life for years. Continue reading Let go and let flow
