A Near Death Experience

A Near Death Experience

A Near Death Experience

I have taken so many risks in my life …

An ordinary day, heading out to pick up pizza, little did I know.  It’s funny because with all the things that have happened in my life and the risks I have taken, the last thing I expected was to be attacked by a swarm of wasps.

My daughter was 3 at the time and by my side helping to open the gate of our property.  Out of nowhere the wasps charged at me, I was stung repeatedly, My instant reaction was to protect my daughter and make sure she was out of harm’s way.  She was watching, wide eyed, as I jumped up and down trying to evade the painful assault.  I was running around like a crazy man and by the time they had finished with me, I had been stung over 40 times. I checked my little one and she had not been stung once, thankfully.

I raced inside for the bug spray and straight down to the gate, found the nest and torched it. I was satisfied with this result and got back into the car to pick up the pizza.

By the time I had reached the gate for the third time, I started to feel numb and disoriented.  I turned the car around and managed to make it inside the house. By this stage I had a fair idea of what was happening. I laid down on the tiles in the lounge room, grabbed a pillow for underneath my head and asked my wife to call an ambulance.  I was going into anaphylactic shock. I knew I was about to pass out.

This is my recollection …

In the moment, when I was lying on the tiles, I felt myself, my soul, leave my body and I looked back down at myself, at my lifeless body, lying on the floor.  I remember this feeling or more of a knowing that I was slipping away. It felt completely beautiful and natural, just looking down at my body and everything around me.  I felt a total sense of peace and love. While I was in this state I had another ‘knowing’ and was preparing to leave this life for good, when all of a sudden, I heard an unknown ‘male voice’ that said to me, “do you want to stay or do you want to go?” In that split second I realised that I was offered a choice. I answered the voice telepathically and said “I need to stay; I have work to do’.

I believe the reason why I decided to stay from a higher perspective was I needed to work on myself more deeply, to not only become a better human but to evolve as a spiritual being and to assist others. 

Having had several out of body experiences in the past, this kind of thing was not unfamiliar to me, however, this time it felt very different and more final, as if I was coming to the end of my contract in this life.

Choosing to stay

I could see from a higher perspective that the lessons I needed to learn were the most important thing in my life and the reason for staying would be for my spiritual growth and to share spiritual wisdom with others.

As soon as I had made the decision to stay, “we”, meaning the higher unidentifiable male voice and myself both agreed to this new soul contract.  Then in a flash I slipped back into my body and that’s when the paramedics walked in.  I tried to get up and they tried to stop me. They took my blood pressure and it was 20 over 40 which meant, I was coming back from death. They insisted on taking me to hospital to be checked over and I was later discharged with no problems; however, a new and life affirming purpose had surfaced.

I had been given a choice and decided to stay, from that moment on, the most important thing in my life has been my spiritual journey.  Life experiences come and go, every new day I give my full attention to the purposeful  “work” that I chose to stay here and complete.

My near death experience has also shown me not to waste a moment and to use this life to help myself and others in all ways possible.  You just never know when a random swarm of wasps could try and kill you and an all knowing voice from above offers you a choice to stay or go, in a timeless moment, hovering between life and death.

Understanding Sacred Chakras

Understanding Sacred Chakras

Understanding Sacred Chakras

Chakras are energy centres within the human body.

“Chakra” is a Sanskrit word and translates to “wheels of light” and originated in India between 1500 and 500 BC (The Vedas, earliest Sanskrit literary records).

When taking the courageous journey within, we begin to understand, or maybe we already know, that everything is in fact energy.

Our interior energy landscape is it’s own brilliant hub of wisdom.  The seven main chakras each corresponding to a colour, specific organs, as well as physical, emotional, mental and spiritual states of being.

Bringing awareness and intention to each of the seven chakra energy centres, will develop a balanced existence and significantly enhance overall wellness.

Personal chakra awareness creates linkages back to the physical, emotional, psychological and environmental factors and in turn increases understanding of your spirituality and the deeper meaning of life.  Every aspect of your life is interconnected and woven into your soul story.

A comfortable place to begin chakra awareness is to identify your seven main energy centres.  By bringing awareness to their presence, we bring energy to them and start a subtle healing and alignment process.  Where intention goes energy flows.

Affirmations are statements made by the conscious mind

Bringing awareness to groundedness, abundance, strength, love, truth, awakeness and connectedness is a channel to your human soul.

Affirmations are statements made by the conscious mind that are directed to the subconscious mind.  Affirmations are self empowering, self governed, free and always available to us.

A human being has an innate intelligence working harmoniously and seamlessly as a mind, body and spirit, in a fluid dance of peace of mind, awareness of body and purpose of spirit.

Our Chakra Affirmations are for you to add to your spiritual toolkit.

Repeat them with loving intent, as often as possible.

Creating Sacred Space

Creating Sacred Space

Creating Sacred Space

Living awake, your higher consciousness is calling you to delve deeper into all of who you are and it is time to make space for your sacred work.  

Creating a space to do this, is so beautifully unique for each of us and how you go about it or what it looks like makes no difference, the only thing that matters is listening to your inner knowing and actively doing the work.

Somewhere quiet, where you feel safe in your private sanctuary is ideal to create your alter for regular spiritual practice.  

The Ancients did this so well and the art of sacred ritual is something that you most certainly can master in your own home or garden or whatever space that is conducive to journeying inward. 

By wrapping ritual and sacredness around you and your soul’s work will only enhance the energetic and vibrational resonance of your wider environment and of course the universe.

When we regularly feed our soul, all of those around us, our loved ones benefit too, raising the vibration for all.

It is important that you claim, your sacred time, because realistically, no-one is going to just hand it to you on a platter and invite you to indulge.   There is no-one better than you and no one more qualified than you to know what your soul honestly needs in order to set aside delicious moments in time to nurture your relationship with self. 

Creating is the fun part of the journey and when we truly ask ourselves what could our sacred space look, feel, smell, like, the options are limitless.   A comfy chair/cushion with a small table and a white candle is ideal, and this can evolve over time to a whole room or garden space dedicated solely to you?  You are so worth it!

Add items to your sacred space that are meaningful to you, as little or as much as you need to focus on the sacredness of YOU.   Pictures of loved ones, inspiring gifts, deities, angels, crystals, flowers or any memento that is special to you can be placed on your alter.  Sometimes, less is more, and portable alters are most useful if you travel regularly.

When you set out on your divine spiritual task, you immediately sense the tingles of empowerment gently nudging you forth as you reclaim your sacred self-care and path to authenticity.

As you manifest your sacred space, the universe responds by sending signs and symbols that will present themselves to you, in validation of your courageous steps forward.  Make sure you pay attention and observe mindfully, always giving thanks for the divinely timed and inspired messages.

Once you have set your sacred scene, there is so much you can achieve here, however remembering that peace and stillness is the aim and before we can successfully journey inwards, relaxation is the key.

Lighting a candle and coming home to your breath and your heart, is a beautiful place to begin.

Sitting comfortably with your spine straight,  place one hand on your heart chakra in the centre of your chest and the other hand on your solar plexus chakra  just above your naval area, and b r e a t h e.   A few long slow deep breaths, in and out, will assist you to centre and ground yourself in the moment.

From here on in, you will find a method that best works for you.   You might like to focus on our Chakra Affirmations, or complete a guided meditation, draw an oracle card for daily guidance, journal your thoughts, pray, choose a mantra, play calming music or simply sit in stillness and silence.  If you are time limited, use a gentle alarm to bring you back to wakefulness when you need to.  End your sacred session by blowing out the candle.

Be kind to yourself and fully immerse in this sacred time to get to know you, better than ever before.

Be aware, this practice is highly transformative and should be used as much as humanly possible to become the best version of YOU.

Listen and trust your inner voice, as your spiritual esteem soars.
