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.

Signs and signals from the universe

In this age of high-tech communications where it is so effortless to access information, we often forget to plug into the eternal spring of wisdom within. That silent language of the soul, the nuances and the signs and signals from the universe. I would like to share with you a recent experience of mine, that once again reminded me of this amazing duality we inhabit and how thin the veil really is, if you are willing to open your heart and listen.

My mother was a fiery five foot nothing, Sicilian beauty, whose passion in life was her family, cooking and home. I have such heart-felt memories of my brother and I walking home from school, delicious smells wafting up the street tantalising our taste buds before we even walked in the door. Mum would always be in the kitchen wearing a bright apron with her trusty old wooden spoon in hand. She would spend hours perfecting her creation, so it was just right by the time we arrived.

Since Mum’s passing her presence is felt often

Over the years, since her passing, she has made her presence felt many times in subtle and not so subtle ways. From feeling her with me when I am cooking, or in a plane flying over Tibet! Last year, while in mid-flight I was sitting beside a new acquaintance. She turned to me a little annoyed to tell me there was this very vocal, tiny lady waving a wooden spoon, demanding her attention. I realised immediately it was mum and she was insisting that this poor woman convey to me, how very proud she was. Did I mention she was incredibly stubborn too? Whenever I have a reading this is the consistent theme that she is almost desperate to deliver.

Emotions were bursting from my heart

Most recently I have been exceptionally busy and on this particular day I was working on the dedication page for my first book. I had two laptops on the go and in my peripheral vision I caught sight of something unusual behind a document. To my utter disbelief it was a full blown picture of my mother’s face, which I didn’t even realise I had. Immediately I felt such a strong mixture of emotions bursting from my heart which was released into a full blown sobbing session. Through my tears of joy, loss and gratitude, I knew that she wanted me to dedicate the book to her and it was my way of reciprocating the pride she felt in me.

Her praise was something I craved dearly for but seldom received

On returning to my dedication, within seconds of typing her name, she disappeared from my screen but I had no doubt that she was proud of me once again. My mother was quite the perfectionist, and her praise was something that I craved dearly for but seldom received. In her way I think she is making up for that now in buckets or should I say wooden spoonfuls!

So next time the universe is dialing your number please be present enough to hear it ringing or otherwise the magic will pass you by.

Spiritual Energy Clearing

Spiritual Energy Clearing

Spiritual Energy Clearing

Spiritual Energy Clearing can
be completed at anytime

Spiritual Energy Clearing is an ancient spiritual practice that removes stagnant, negative or chaotic energy from a space that you frequent. Places such as your home, healing space, garden or office. When these spaces are spiritually cleared, it makes way for and allows positive energy to flow freely into your space.

When a home is filled with love and harmony it becomes a place of peace and renewal. Just as a home and its occupants benefit from being physically clean, your space also benefits from being spiritually clean. A spiritual energy clearing of your space can be done by YOU at any time. Particularly when you notice feelings of negativity or heaviness including stale or stagnant energies present in your environment.

Spiritual energy clearing is also beneficial when you need a change in your life or after illness or injury, death, arguments, difficult guests, relationship transitions, negative incidents, a robbery, when you are selling your house, moving into a new house or when you are feeling low, tired or drained. Negative energy can literally make you ill, especially if you are exposed to it regularly.

Everything is energy, including
our thoughts, words and actions.

Energetically, everything that happens in a frequented space such as thoughts, actions or emotions can be held there. Arguments, upsets, illness, chaos, heaviness, negativity, traumas and other unsettling energies can linger and disturb the harmonious balance of your space. The Spiritual Energy Clearing Ritual provides a clear guide on how to restore and bring about balance and peace into your sacred space.

Everything is energy, our thoughts, our words and our actions, so have fun while remaining respectful of the ancient ritual of clearing energy. Nurture and clear your sacred space regularly and enjoy ongoing spiritual esteem and positive abundance.

Our Spiritual Energy Clearing Ritual below has been developed by our team at Living Awake, to provide practical and helpful guidance. Our ritual has been successfully adapted by many people who want to shift, move and clear unwanted energies from their environment.

Spiritual Energy Clearing Ritual

Opening Affirmation

I call on Divine Universal Energy and all of those who love me unconditionally in their truest form to assist me now to spiritually clear unwanted energy from my sacred space.

My intent is to clear ALL negative and low vibrational energy from this space.

Continue REPEATING YOUR INTENT (out loud is best) as you move around your sacred space using your Spiritual Energy Cleansing Tool/s of choice.

Starting at your entrance, ensuring windows are open and mindfully walk around every room in your home/space. Paying particular attention to the corners, behind doors and inside cupboards or where the energy feels the heaviest.

Be confident, this is your space. Trust your intuition. Finish the spiritual energy clearing at your back door or at the rear of your space.

White Light Protection Affirmation

I call on the White Light to completely fill my cleared space with Divine White Light Energy for Love, Healing and Protection. For the highest good of all.

Important Note:

Once your space is cleared, you have created a void so it is very important to immediately fill the void with Divine White Light.

Closing Affirmation

I INVITE into my sacred space a positive flow of energy.

I INVITE into my sacred space balanced energy, harmony, peace and love, for the highest good of all.

I THANK YOU for your Divine Support and Unconditional Love.
