Separation and Rewriting the Narrative.

Last week I went back to the UK for my daughters wedding, which was beautiful. <3

The day before I came back I went on a two hour hike around the countryside & nature reserve where I used to live and walk daily with my dog Loui. I so miss that, I feel so much more connected to nature, to spirit, to me, there.

Walking the land I spent so many years care taking and connecting with really lifted my soul. Visiting with one of my sacred trees and the trees I helped plant at the orchard brought tears to my eyes, and filled my heart with joy to see them flourishing. I visited the bushes and plants that I used to forage from and thanked them for the gifts they bestowed over the years, not just for me and others who gather their bounty but the wildlife they help to survive too.

While walking, absorbing, breathing in the energy, somewhere along the path a message came.

‘Division comes in many forms, some are blatant like racism and religion. But others are hidden within ego traps more commonly known as labels; a marital status, a career or in my specific case a job title’.

As spiritual teachers we mostly lead by example, which means being 100% authentic to ourselves, to our own moral code at all times. When things are not flowing, it is usually because our thoughts, feelings and actions are not in synch. Somewhere on our moral compass there’s a glych and the needle just keeps catching on that one pesky spot.

There is much to be said about labels, some are useful like when buying the right size shoes. Others create a distinction, a sense of grandeur or entitlement, a separation from the concept of “we are all one, all connected, all relations”, “Mitakuye Oyasin”.

So why in the spiritual enlightenment – holistic health community do we have so many labels that create division?

This is actually a topic that I talk about a lot with friends and colleagues but this download made me see it from a different angle too.

I’ve always had an issue with all the reinvention of traditional modalities that have worked for thousands of years just fine, then as soon as it hits the western world there are all these “new” forms if it, or there are new levels added to it. I mean seriously what is that all about? In the last 20years there have been more ‘new’ modalities being ‘channelled’ than ever in the history of human kind.

Now don’t get me wrong, in the last 30years there has also been huge mass awakenings, and with that comes great knowledge and ancient wisdom that we have suppressed under our civilised 9-5’s and TV dinners. So it’s not all just a load of band wagon, money making schemes and ego. I’ve been witness to both, mostly the latter.

Why do we need to use titles such as Reiki Master? More recent add ons are Reiki Master Teacher, Grand Masters and Ascended Masters. It’s quite laughable really.

So how am I/we creating division?

Let’s look at the modalities I use. Reiki, Hypnotherapy, shamanic practitioner, NLP, EFT, Munay Ki, Regression, Animal Communication etc these are my main modalities. But, where does all that come from?

When we work to help someone do we read from a book or do we take the basics and go with our intuition?

Is every Reiki treatment for example exactly the same? When using any healing mode, where is that energy coming from? Does Reiki come from a different source than shamanic healing?

Of course not, it all comes from the same energy source in the universe. So why do we have so many different labels?

Why do I have to use any of the labels or titles? They have never sat right with me anyway. When I did level 3 Reiki I used to joke with people and say, ‘I’m a Reiki Master, you must bow when I enter the room’.      

Because even way back then I found it all too absurd to take seriously. Why can’t it just be a Reiki Teacher?

I’ve received some miraculous healing and wise wisdom from some very young and less experienced people. We need to get out of our own way and be humble, we are not healing anyone, we are simply a channel, a telephone receiver  It doesn’t work without someone on the other end making sound waves and the desire from the client to heal.

Titles don’t make you a clear vessel for healing to work through you, your heart and intentions do.

Is going to a Healer better if they call them self a master? Did they train for years on a mountain to gain the wisdom of a grand master, or did they do a weekend workshop or maybe an online course!

Discernment and common sense are seriously lacking today.

How can we preach unity if the example we are setting is about competition and ego?
Why do we keep feeding the ego minds of our clients by presenting ourselves as bigger and better than the next healer down the street, when they are coming to us to gain control over it most of the time.  Plus when people get bombarded with options they often feel overwhelmed and either panic pick, loose all concept of what they actually want help with and put it on you to decide what to do for them, or simply walk away.

Unity and separation – One counteracts the other and creates an imbalance, which not only affects our moral compass and holds us back from helping more people but the ripples spread into the collective consciousness creating even bigger egos. Soon I’m sure we will see ‘super grand masters’ on the scene. 😁

For me I’m dropping labels, titles and all the trimmings. I am but a vessel for the energy of the universe and ancestors to do what is needed at the time. It is not me that brings peace to an anxious mind or relief to an ailing body, I simply request that it be so and trust that what is required will be granted.

If we all used the same terminology then division, competition and confusion would be eliminated, in this field at least.

So for now I will just say that I am a spiritual teacher and energy practitioner. Even that doesn’t sit well with me. I guess being humble is a big part of our medicine.

Mitakuye Oyasin.

Hawk and Ram

My friend is over from the UK wrapping up her life here, never to return.

So last week we took Loui and Pepi (dog I’ve been looking after) to the mountains to see the snow.

On the way we stopped at the Dam, there is a sunken village under it apparently.

 

While we were leaving the Dam a huge Hawk was hovering over it’s prey. We sat and watched it hovering and diving for ten minutes. We got pictures but they didn’t come out well, it just looks like a dot in the sky.While we were leaving the Dam a huge Hawk was hovering over it’s prey.

I said to Sarah that Hawk is a good sign and something magical will happen today.

We continued on to the mountains, Sarah wanted to visit Kykko Monastary which is at the top of Troodos, so it was a long drive. We stopped a couple of times for Loui Loo breaks as he has no control over it now and I have to manually make him go, or risk a big mess. lol Was good for Pepi to stretch a bit too.

 

When we hit Snow, Sarah was like a little kid.  I must admit its been around 30years since Ive been to Troodos in the snow season and was beautiful to see.

 

We saw the Skiers which was a delight to see, my mum always wanted to go on the Ski lifts but when we went up one time they were closed.  I have no idea how she planned on getting back down anyway, so probably best that it was closed that day :)

 

As we traveled up the mountain we stopped by this beautiful Twin Tree for yet another toilet break, then shortly after something incredible happened.  We were discussing future plans etc.  Then out of thin air this huge Ram (mountain goat) jumped over the barrier almost landing on the bonnet of our car, it tried to run across the road but there was another car coming the other way and we were almost bumper to bumper with us, and the Ram stopped, looked at us then jumped between the cars and up the mountain.  It stood there looking down at us for a few mins before disappearing over the top.  Sarah got the best view as he was her side but I saw him for a second before grabbing my camera but when I opened my door to get a picture he darted off.  The guy in the other car was laughing his head off, Sarah was in shock and I was like ‘wow, did that really just happen’!

 

As you can see from the second picture, it came from below and cleared that rail.  Luckily I saw it and Sarah slammed on, or Hawks message of clear vision would have been wasted on us lol

We continued up to the Monastery filled with awe at what had happened, we thought it was a Stag at the time but on refection with the horns it was definitely a Ram.  Also kind of ironic as we were heading to a Monastery, home of the sacrificial lamb!We continued up to the Monastery filled with awe at what had happened, we thought it was a Stag at the time but on refection with the horns it was definitely a Ram.  Also kind of ironic as we were heading to a Monastery, home of the sacrificial lamb!

 

On the way back down we stopped to let Loui and Pepi play in the snow for 5 mins.  They loved it, Loui especially.

The sun was going down as we headed back down to go home and the setting sun gave us a beautiful display.  It reminded me of watching it set at the Grand Canyon, it looked like the mountain was on fire.

 

Magical day from start to end.  Spent with a special Angel who I will miss dearly. She came into my life only a few short months ago but she has been a pillar of support during these harsh few months and she brought love, friendship and laughter when I really needed it.  Friends like this don’t come along often and I’m very very grateful for the blessing that is my soul Sistar Sarah. <3

A few days later at 2am I got the urge to do a painting.  Had no idea what of but like a good little hollow bone I dug out my paints and my one remaining canvas and sat down at the ready for further instructions.  At this point all i could think about was the ceiling I painted in my old Reiki room years ago.  So I did that all over the canvas, then everything else kinda just appeared.  I’m not the greatest artist (a 5 year old can do better) but I knew it was for Sarah to remind her of our epic adventure in the mountains.  And I knew she would appreciate the sentiment. She loved it :)

Treasure your loved ones, be aware of signs from creator and let your inner child play often. Take risks, take a leap of faith and broaden your horizons.
