So you can have a sneak peeky, here is the Introduction to Truth Spirit Love:
If you have a desire to know and love yourself more deeply this book is for you. The things I'm going to share with you are what I have been successfully using with clients and students in my role as a spiritual healer and teacher. For nearly 30 years now I've been supporting others on their self-discovery and healing paths. Working with hundreds of men, women, young people, animals and spirits has allowed me to experience, witness, discover and learn a great deal about what it takes to heal.
We are multilayered, energetic beings with physical, emotional, mental and spiritual bodies. We're affected by a vast array of issues on all of these levels. I've worked with pain, injury, dis-ease, cancer and terminal illness. There's been trauma, sexual issues, phobias, suicides, self-hatred, terminations, anxiety, self-harm and depression. People have felt scared by unseen presences, have been unable to begin their spiritual work, experienced spontaneous past life memories and have felt disconnected from their intuition and spirit. I've also encountered loved ones in spirit who haven't made peace with their human life.
These issues are often associated with strong emotions such as grief, guilt, anger, shame and sadness. I have come to understand these emotions well. Being human is endlessly challenging on our quest to know real Love. Our Earth life is a play. It's not our real home for we are spiritual beings first and foremost. To experience this game we temporarily forget our real nature and become immersed in this sensual world with our ego guiding us until we discover we are so much more. Eventually, and this can take lifetimes, we learn to rise above the ego and get it working for the Spirit. That is enlightenment. It takes great courage, practise and commitment to live from such an evolved state. I believe this is a state that humanity will fully embrace in the future. For this to come about we need a lot more Love for ourselves and one another. It is the most powerful and magical healer there is.
I've personally experienced numerous traumatic and challenging life experiences; in hindsight they've been important training for my role as a teacher and healer. They've enabled me to easily identify with a myriad of situations and the impact that such things have on one's body, mind and spirit.
I spent a few decades as a codependent marijuana addict who often drank too much. In fact, I had a list of addictions. There was work, thinking, sex, love, staying busy and overeating. I wasn't aware of how skilled I'd become at distracting myself from being present. Suppressing deeply buried emotions was an unconscious, full time and exhausting job.
Getting clean from drug use was a painful and lengthy process. Befriending myself and making peace with some unprocessed trauma took a whole lot longer. On the outside I looked successful. I had a career as a flight attendant which included a stint based in Italy. I was married to my partner of nine years and we shared our own home in the hills of Perth, Australia. I stayed in five star hotels, travelled the world, enjoyed first class trips and partied with the beautiful people.
In my late twenties I realised I wasn't as happy as I thought I was. As I began consciously exploring my inner world I was shocked to discover how psychologically unhealthy I actually was. My addictive self was avoiding pain that I had no idea how to experience without feeling consumed by it.
The ensuing healing and recovery journey was a classic peeling of layers process that still continues today. True healing will often take us into deep and painful places, dark places that have never seen light. I admire and understand the bravery this takes. There is immense healing power in bringing light to darkness. Ease, wellness, peace and relief are our rewards.
You have your own list of hurts. Mine included trauma, abuse, loss, separation and death. A partying and addictive lifestyle allowed me to avoid all of my unhealed wounds until many years later. You may also be familiar with the tumultuous waves of grief, the excruciating feeling of shame, wild anger and the deep sorrow that comes from trauma and loss. These experiences and feelings are part of the human deal. Challenges will continue to come. Whether we choose to be with them in fear or in love will dictate the ease of our transition to happiness and wellbeing.
I began exploring my inner world in my late twenties. Over the subsequent years I worked with many counsellors, therapists and healers as I unravelled what was beneath my earlier denial. When my dad suddenly died in my forties I was better prepared for being with emotions in a healthier way. This shocking experience triggered a new, even deeper, level of healing for me. One of the many gifts I have received since his departure were flashbacks of traumatic memories I hadn't consciously been aware of. Uncovering the associated deeply buried feelings such as shame, rage and anger was an intense and powerful healing experience that took a few years to process.
Exploring my repressed emotions and unconscious beliefs has been an entryway to my own healing and return to authenticity. Forgiveness of myself and others has been transformational. I now have loving compassion, rather than shame, for the wounded aspects of myself. I am far from enlightened in the guru kind of way, yet enlightened is what I feel compared to who I once thought I was.
Every time we release deep emotion as well as practise compassion and kindness towards ourselves, we become lighter. When we move away from fear and into Love we return to our true self. We can make peace with our past and be a shining light for others to do the same.
When we do authentic healing work we evolve. As we get to truly know and love ourselves we can heal our past. We can forgive ourselves and others. Denial, tension, blame, pain, judgement, addiction and anxieties begin to fade. We can become well physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Holistic wellness is ours when we are ready to be present with what is.
Time, courage and maturity have allowed me to release layers and layers of pain that I held within my system for a very long time, as well as support hundreds of others to do the same. We need a safe and supportive environment to do this. Sometimes we can do that for ourselves and other times we need the loving holding space that comes from a skilled and compassionate person.
Whether you're a healer, lightworker, change maker or a seeker consciously evolving, this book will support you to be in touch with your emotions and intuition as well as recall your own knowledge and gather some tools in order to prevent yourself from becoming unwell on any level of your being. It will also support you if you are currently on a healing journey.
I've included transformational healing techniques that are simple yet profound. I believe we know everything we need to know to heal ourselves. Sometimes we need wise support to be guided to our inner knowing. I intend for this book to be part of your wise support network.
Books have their own unique energy. This book carries a powerful healing vibration encoded in its pages. Keep it close. Breathe its energy. Let it weave its healing magic into your system.
I hope you are inspired to remember, to grow and to heal.
