A brilliant post from the Contemporary Shaman.

Its not the circumstances we get thrown that define us, its our belief about them.

Depth of character comes from diving deeper and you will not be able to really understand the depths without the experience or at least a taste of actually being there. You can read many books and hear others personal stories but until you are there, in the experience…its just a story, someone else’s story.

It is often thought via the clients themselves that the better therapists are those that have walked in the shoes similar to what their clients have. That’s not to say someone who has good skills but no experience can’t be of quality guidance…

Messages from the Other Side. Tears of Joy & Love Never Dies…


Today I did a very emotional reading for a lovely lady, let’s call her Trish. It was a phone reading as Trish lives on the other side of the world so it’s a little different than doing a face to face reading. I started out talking about her numerology and how that was working in her life. Trish started to to cry and told me she was hoping a loved one would come through, I asked her the name of that person and as soon as I wrote it down I felt a young man step forward. Whenever I write people’s names down I instantly connect with them &/or receive information about them.

Trish’s son, Dan had passed away suddenly 18 months ago at just 25 years of age and she was still going through the difficult process of deep grief. I could feel her pain and was close to tears. Dan told me his soul knew he would not have a long life so he crammed as much as he could into the time that he had. He was part of a beautiful, loving family. He was successful at everything he did and was about to step into his dream job around the time that he passed away.

I passed on the messages to Trish and they were beautiful. I told her the roses in front of her were from Dan and that he would be letting her know he was around more and more. Dan had a lovely girlfriend when he passed away and asked me to tell Trish that he is working on finding another guy for her and will also be bringing some babies through for her. His girlfriend will be a part of Trish’s life as they have a special bond & she will play a part in the children’s lives. Trish became extremely emotional & so did I, not very professional I know but sometimes the readings I do are so powerful I can’t not cry.

To lighten the mood Dan told me to ask his Mum what was so funny about his pants. She started laughing and told me he was at a wedding not long before he passed away and was shaking his booty on the dance floor when he tore a big hole in the backside of his pants, not a small tear, a big split! He said he was having such a good time that he didn’t care about his pants & just kept on dancing!

Trish and I chatted about a few more things and all the while I was receiving such a beautiful feeling of love from Dan. Our time was up so we said our goodbyes. Trish was of grateful for the information I could pass on to her and told me that she felt so much better. I was so pleased that I could help to lighten her heart ❤️

After the reading I took the dogs for a walk down the beach and as I was walking I kept hearing ‘love, love, love’ and knew Dan was walking with me. I’m so blessed to be able to ease people’s pain and connect them with their loved ones that have passed over. It amazes me every time that even on the other side love never dies…

The time has to come to let some things go from your life Libra.

You may have to search for a deeper meaning within yourself, a way of being more authentic & who you truly are. There are inner resources you haven’t even tapped into yet that you can use.

Seeking some form of healing will help you greatly, even talking it through with a good friend will help. The word for you this moth is Truth.

Go to to ocean or river & put your feet in the water, allow the old thoughts to slip away, you are not that person anymore. Embrace your divinity. Your word of the month is Love.

Trying To Understand Why I Struggle When Others Tell Me I Am Strong

A Broken Blue Sky


If someone has a fear of public speaking and then finds the courage to do so, that is strength

If you lose your leg and wearing a prosthesis, run a marathon, that is strength and grit

If you have a fear of flying and overcome that fear and travel anyway, that is courage and strength

If you suffer trauma that has never been validated, NEVER, and you are forced to appear outwardly okay in order to feel accepted; and if you ever did let your emotions show you got hurt further and abused more…

And when this happened so much that the facade became automatic and all the while you are dying inside, living an emotionally tortured life…

This is NOT strength, this is survival!

We would never say to someone who just lost their child or their spouse, “You look great, I am glad to see you are doing…

🌕 Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius, August 7th. Release & let go 🌕

🌑 New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo,  August 21st. Manifestion & beginnings 🌑




Aries ♈️

This month sees great change for you Aries & it’s about time. People & events have changed in your life & you may not have realised how much. This is a good thing as it will help you to take the steps you need to move forward. Be confident in your decisions & if you feel confused step back & look at the higher picture, there may be details that you miss if you rush in. You have a deep inner wisdom that you don’t always trust & August will bring things up to make you delve into that trust & to believe in it. After the eclipse season is over you will see & feel a rebirth in yourself & your plans. Your goals will change somewhat & this is a good thing. Wait until after the 27th to put things into motion.


Taurus ♉️

August is a good month for you Taurus & there is a strong feeling of release & growth happening for you. Some issues from the past that you have been carrying for a long time will be put to rest & you will feel them lighten as you release during the eclipse season. There may be one thing that you can’t quite let go of yet but that’s ok, you have done well up to this point. I suggest practicing forgiveness on the Full Moon by writing on a piece of paper what you would like to release, praying to the moon while electing go of the emotions you hold & burning the paper. By doing this you will free up space in your heart for beautiful emotions to enter it. Watch for signs on your path as they will show you the right way to go.


Gemini ♊️

Dear Gemini… this will be a powerful month for you as old hurts & unresolved isssues will come up for you, do not despair as this is a good thing. You are being given an opportunity to let go of a lot of old crap that you’ve been working on for a few years. Some of this will be painful but please remember the pain is temporary & once you have sorted it out that will be it. You have carried your heavy heart for too long. Be sure to observe the rituals for both the Full & New Moons as this will help you in a big way. By the end of the month you will be in a space where you will see & feel in a different way, a feeling of freedom, at last. Focus on self love & nurture & do something nice for yourself, something with meaning to mark the end of a period of great growth.


Cancer ♋️

Cancer you may find yourself walking away from people this month as you begin to see & acknowledge the truth of their words & actions. If this feels familiar it’s because it is & there is an important life lesson in this for you. Don’t feel bad as you have such gentle heart & people will take advantage of this. Dust yourself off & move forward, lesson learned. Don’t allow your thoughts to overwhelm you, it’s ok to acnnowledgs the thought & let it slip quietly form your mind, after all it’s only a thought. You will also be learning or polishing your skills towards the end of the month & may develop a new hobby or interest that will inspire you. If you are thinking about a new job wait until after September 5th when Mercury is no longer retrograde.


Leo ♌️

This month may test you my fiery friends so be sure to keep that temper in check. You would also do well to mind how you speak to others as a sudden outburst (even though it may be the truth) will prove difficult to take back & may end a partnership or friendship. I feel the 9th is an important a day for you so mark it on your calendar. After the full moon you will be inspired to try new things & to branch out into new interests. Perhaps you will start a sport or do something physical that will channel your strong energy into something good. Be sure to take good care of yourself & eat well, your diet is important now so be aware of what you are eating & drinking. Happy Birthday! 


Virgo ♍️

You may feel quite emotional this month Virgo, especially around the time of the Full Moon. Do you have regrets about choices you made in the past or perhaps wish things had been different? Well it’s time to let those feelings go & forgive yourself & others involved. Look at what you do have in your life rather than what you don’t have, this will help you to focus on more positive things & put a smile on your face. Send love to the people & situations from your past & look towards the future. There are good times ahead. You will appreciate the simple things & live a life of abundance that will bring joy much joy. What you have learned through your own experiences will help you to advise & guide others. All is well…


Libra ♎️

Trusting your intuition & awareness is important this month Librans. You will receive strong messages about people & situations so be sure to listen to the inner voice. Be aware of people that may not have your best interests at heart & may indeed try to deceive you. Be careful around money & property issues & don’t lend anyone money. There will be an important decision towards the end of the month & you will consult your partner or a good friend in this matter. I feel you will be planning a trip or thinking about going somewhere exotic in the future & now is a good time to make plans. Make your intention clear & the universe will help you to make it happen, be bold!


Scorpio ♏️

Money will be highlighted this month Scorpios & you may find yourself juggling things or working out ways to make ends meet. You may find yourself with a big bill or unexpected expense to pay & having to work out how to pay it. Be creative & get help if you need to & all will be well. I feel you have been making plans to start something new. You may not feel confident about it right now but don’t underestimate yourself as you have many talents that you don’t embrace or trust within yourself, these can help you greatly. If you have been thinking about learning something or returning to study this is a good time to do that as you will be focused & able to accomplish what you set out to do. Get creative!


Sagittarius ♐️

Take time to consider things this month Sagi’s, take a step back rather that forward &  don’t rush into things before you think about them. Being impetuous will not serve you well so calm yourself! There is a situation that has been troubling you for a while & it’s time to surrender to the truth of it & accept there is nothing you can do to change the way things are. By doing this you will free yourself of the thoughts & stress that go along with it. It doesn’t mean you agree with it, rather it’s an acceptance & release of the need to control the outcome of the situation. It will also release others involved & allow events to play out as they are meant to. There is a karmic feel around this so it’s meant to happen. Trust this is right for you.


Capricorn ♑️

A firm foundation & structure are important for you now Capricorns. If this has been missing in your life know that it will be restored. I feel balancing things has been quiet a challenge so far this year & you have spent a lot of time & energy helping others as well as looking at your own needs. This balance will be brought back as the Eclipse season comes to an end & after Mercury finishes the retrograde. Be patient with yourself & others as the energies of this month will affect everyone in some way. There will be an abrupt ending with something & also a lovely new beginning. You will hear some much needed good news by the end of the month that will give you the encouragement you need to achieve your goals. Don’t be discouraged & keep your eye on the prize.


Aquarius ♒️

You may find yourself having to stand up for yourself or those closest to you this month Aquarius. You will be the voice for those that can’t speak for themselves. You have a great inner strength & are tougher than you give yourself credit for so don’t be afraid to step up. You may have legal dealings in some way as well but know that they will have a positive result. After the full moon you will be dealing with affairs of the heart & will be looking after or helping people, your generosity of spirit will make all the difference so extend the help that is needed. You will be rewarded for your selflessness later in the year. This will come me form an unexpected source & being you great joy.


Pisces ♓️

Take it easy on yourself this month Pisces & allow things to unfold as they will. You don’t have to force things to happen as they are unfolding as they are meant to. Some things take longer than others to come to fruition so be patient. It’s important that you find a good balance between your deep inner world & the practical outer world. Money will be highlighted & I feel you will receive a windfall, or unexpected help that will make life easier. Be sure to do a release on the Full Moon on the 7th, this is especially important for you as you carry a heavy emotional load most of the time. Let go of your fears & know that you are safe & protected at all times. You have people around you that love you very much, allow them to support you.

Surrender. A Shift in Perception. Acceptance and Leading my Inner Child out of the Dark…

I have been through a deep inner change during the past week, one I have not experienced before. The shift came into my awareness in a subtle way but I had a strong ‘knowing’ that this is the change I had been waiting for, it’s hard to explain but I can feel the change inside of me. I have been going through an intense transformation over the past seven months since moving into this house and understand that I must release the expectations, disappointments and feelings of sadness and betrayal from my past. Through dreams, Archetypal work and teaching I have been shown what needs to go and what needs to stay, there’s a lot that needs to go! It is time to embrace acceptance, to stop pushing up against the things I cannot change. It is easy to slip into negative feelings and allow the inner critic to take over and tell me all sorts of lies but I will not allow that to happen. That voice has no power over me!

I have no choice but to surrender, there is nothing else to do, nothing. My wounded child does not like this as she has held tightly to the pain that has been her anchor for the longest time. She wants to lash out, to blame others for the way she feels and to make them hurt as she does so I must comfort her and help her to understand that it’s time for her to grow, to catch up with me and trust me enough to guide her through the rest of her journey. She has spent so much time in the dark, fearful of being found out for who she truly is, an imposter. Too afraid to show her vulnerability, to show her true self as people may not like her. People may not want to be her friend or they will just take what they need from her and leave her behind, sad and empty, again.  I must lead her into my heart and allow her to rest there and feel the love I have for her. To help her to be more resilient and most importantly, to know she is safe.

This journey of healing is an arduous one, just when I think I’m over the line something else pops up. As one part of my past is dealt with another is waiting in the wings to be picked through, processed and put to rest. It has been very intense for three years and I’m so tired, emotionally and physically. I haven’t had much respite at all but I am finally able to see my progress, my bloody brilliant progress. This has smoothed my rough edges and softened me and enabled me to be a caring and compassionate reader and teacher. I love the work that I do and understand my healing is not only for myself but also for all who come into contact with me.

This humbles my heart ❤️





Ascension. Dreams & Trusting the Process…

  • The ascension symptoms I was experiencing earlier this year have returned after a 6 week break, I thought I was done with them but no. Again I’m having trouble getting up in the morning and I’m receiving downloads at night. I’m feeling so heavy and exhausted. Throw in the full moon and the Moon/Pluto opposition and it’s all happening. I’m going through another deep healing process, I’m having very vivid dreams of many people from my past. I’m dreaming about people from my 20’s and 30’s all mixed together, it’s weird. Add a few ex boyfriends…. ugh.This morning I had a dream where I was in a very deep and wide bath, the water was murky with bubbles on top. I was laying on the right hand side of the tub and different friends from the past that I no longer have contact with as well as ex boyfriends stepped into the left side of the bath, sat down, spoke to me then got out on the same side and walked away. I remember feeling perplexed in the dream and worrying about how dirty the water was becoming with all these people stepping into MY bath!

    When they had finished I got out of the right side of the bath and walked to the ocean, I stood on the shore and looked across the water to where there was the wing of a plane sitting on top of the waves. I walked into the waves I could see the rest of the plane under the water. I swam out to it and sat on the wing. As I turned to my right side the was an older Asian woman passing me a blonde haired baby boy. She kept telling me to take the child, pushing him towards me. I could see him very clearly, he had fair hair and blue eyes.

    I took him from her arms and looked at him, he had the face of an angel. When I looked up at the woman she said to me numerous times ‘he is 21 months, 21 months, 21 months’.

    Then I woke up…
