Sometimes I feel disconnected spiritually. It happens when I rush my morning practice because of 'things to do'. It happens when I don't get up early enough to journal and greet the day with grace. It happens when I'm projecting my issues onto someone else, when I'm trying to control the future and when I forget to give thanks.
The people who come to work with me are often disconnected spiritually too. They may feel lost, lacking clarity and unable to see the way forward. I support them to come back to their inner knowing as well as to be connected to their spiritual self. This often means arriving in the body for starters. Being grounded is not as common a practise as it needs to be for our well being. I'll write more about that another time. Recovering our spirit/energy/power from the myriad of places we have projected it, understanding why that is and becoming present can take some time.
Once we're in our body we can connect with how we are actually feeling rather than getting into stories with our thoughts about our problems and why they are there. That kind of thinking is a distraction from emotions that want to emerge so we can heal and feel lighter.
When we are aware of how we are doing physically, emotionally and mentally it becomes easier to connect to our spiritual being from a place of awareness.
Feeling disconnected spiritually can look like despair, depression, questioning your self worth, loneliness, emptiness and a lack of meaning in your life. These are signs that your spirit needs some attention, that it's calling, "Be with me, attend to me."
The challenge for each of us is to recognise what we use as an excuse for not setting aside the time to connect on this level. For some it is health, for others time, family commitments or not enough money driving us to keep on pushing.
When we deny our spirit we deny our essential nature. This soul aspect of our being would love to speak to us in cherished moments but because we have become conditioned to think and do it speaks to us through pain, suffering, struggle and fear instead.
Your greatest source of pain comes from denying your spiritual nature. It is important to create a sacred space and make room for this connection. Become aware of your spirit's needs. Ask, what do you need from me? What do you need to share with me? You may need to sit quietly by yourself and journal, or let images and impressions come.
Restore your spirit by feeding it with imagination, passion, beauty, creativity and harmony. Have beautiful things around you. Listen to music. Pray. Journal your gratitude. Meditate. Read spiritual texts. Enjoy nature. Be alone in peace. Connect with animals. You instinctively know what your spirit needs. What is coming to you now as you consider that?
Know the signs that you are disconnected and enjoy the full hearted feeling of reconnecting to your Spirit and coming home to your essential nature.
wishing you many centred spirit moments

Those of you who know yourself as a lightworker, change maker, awakener or healer have an important role on Earth at this time. You can feel it deep within. It's a mission you wont ignore.
Whether you're talking to individuals, groups or the masses about nutrition, body awareness, love, spirituality, personal growth, conscious parenting, the rising feminine, yoga, planetary healing, conscious business, breathing or healing you are doing Earth changing work. There's a very long list of all the other things you might be doing on this heart felt quest. Regardless of how you are called you know you're on purpose. You are aware our planet needs all aware hands on deck.
Coming out of fear and into Love is what we're really being called towards. We've been holding on to pain for far too long. We've operated from those hurts creating even more bad vibes. Just imagine a planet where everyone communicated from Love. It's what we all long for, right?
Fear still presides for the majority. There are a lot of people disconnected from their authentic self. You have awareness about living more consciously, it's your job to inspire, awaken and heal. This means living your own life more authentically, more of the time.
I used to be all high vibe light and love in my healing practise then back to struggling with addictions, relationship dramas and unconscious self loathing in my personal life. It took years of dedicated personal growth work to begin a more authentic integration.
Even those of us who are conscious a lot of the time will have fear rule now and then. If that's happening often get yourself some support, the planet needs you in Love mode. It needs you on purpose sharing your passion.
We must not forget what we know. When we love ourselves and breathe to a more centred, grounded place when collective or personal fear comes over us we wont get lost for days on end. Being human means ego will take over. The more we become conscious of that fearful voice the less we will succumb to it. Work your energetic boundaries when you're around others who are operating from fear. Negativity can be contagious. Hang out with high vibe people when you can. The more you sparkle the greater your effect on others will be.
You have so much knowledge within. You know what needs to happen and when. Please don't pretend you don't. You might need a hand to remember this truth, if so be guided to the right person. Don't give your power away by asking others for their version of your truth. Our inner knowing is easy access guidance. We all know what we need to heal our bodies and minds. We know what we love to do and we know what we are here to bring to the planet. The Earth needs you. Accept your mission!
wishing you power to change the world
