A Place of Divinity

Go beyond the drama of the mind

Let go of your fear

Your Purpose is to Share

You are Unique and so Rare,

For it unites the illusion of yours and mine.

Feeling lonely? Perhaps the universe is teaching you to enjoy being alone

I’m sure most of us have had difficult times where we have felt isolated, alone, lonely..

We have craved company, socialising or perhaps the opposite but not bearing to be with ourselves.

Why is it that we have all this time alone.. why not look at it with curiosity.. I believe everything is exactly as its supposed to be.

I remember for the best part of last year I felt lonely. I couldn’t quite understand it because all my friends seemed to have their lives set out, and I seemed like the odd one out, the failure. The only one back at home, not knowing what step was next.

After months of this, I began journalling.. I cant remember what got me started but It helped.

It made me put things out of my mind, just getting it out on paper was a de-stress, less confusion of it all buzzing up there.

The big shift came a year ago when I was casually writing my thoughts and I realized I didnt do anything i did as a child.. reading, dancing, painting.. So i joined the library.. and then I started reading many books about the mind, life, spirituality.

As you can see, it was a bit like a domino effect, it all just began coming together. I learnt to let go of fears and anxiety and replace it with trust, faith.. and it all began to make sense to me.

I was alone, still. But instead of resisting it, I let it strengthen me. I began by taking myself out of the house on walks in nature, I went to my favourite coffee shop and read of wrote or people watched, I made the most of being able to relax, I found things to be grateful for. I began by being the person I wanted to be, I remember saying hello to people, smiling and wishing them a good day.. the difference that made me feel and the response I got was incredible. It set my day up, just those small little things.

I still feel lonely sometimes.. there’s definitely been plenty of those times whilst travelling too, noit necesserily when I havent had company, but felt alone as not to be myself and connect with others. They’re all places for growth, strength, practise.

Life is a continious cycle of surrendering, letting go, trusting in the divine.

Have faith in what’s to come. Let go and let be.

A note from within

Regardless of what you think you may see on the outside that seems to separate you and leave no common ground; look deeper. Know that in each and every single person there is that light that you share, the good intention, the love and infinty. Beyond all the outer layer where we appear to be different, underneath it all, we are just the same.

Therefore you need not like-minded people because you are surrounded by like-hearted people. Bring light to their lives to uncover their potential and power as human beings. Help them break free by breaking free yourself. Know that whatever words you speak, they will have an understanding from within ; be true, be you, share and love.

Do not judge others paths, remember where you have come from. Be grateful for where you are. With purpose and intention to shine this light of love with all human beings, so they too can find this love within themselves.

I bring love, health and happiness with the light of love from within – together we can create a new earth.

My Daily Affirmation

I thought it would be nice for me to share my daily affirmation with you guys, it’s simple, meaningful and takes 2 minutes if you’re short on time.

I usually like to practise yoga or sun salutations to begin with to focus my energy inwards and quieten the mind (this is optional and not necessary when short on time)

I then bring my hands in prayer position to my forehead with the mantra

– ‘I bring kind thoughts to myself, and others.’

Secondly I move my hands to my lips, still in prayer position

– ‘I bring kind words to myself, and others.’

I then move my arms to the middle of my chest, near the heart

– ‘I bring kind actions to myself and to others.’

Finally finishing with a bow and namaste.

This mini affirmation is great to start the day, it sets intention to be kind to yourself and everyone else through how you think, speak and act. Making sure we are not harshly commenting or judging ourselves, dont call ourselves names and don’t abuse ourselves. The same towards others. I find It stays in my mind all day then too 🙂

I also usually add on a little thought for what I am grateful for, what I would like to achieve from my day or life in general. This is great for focusing your thoughts on positive outcomes and being clear about what you want. Its also great for making you feel great, focusing on what you do have and what you’re grateful for instead of focusing on what you don’t have.

Let me know if you decide to practise it also, and if you feel a difference! Remember, it only takes 2 minutes but it could transform your day, your relationship with yourself and everyone else you encounter.

when in doubt, have a little faith

Having faith doesn’t have to be related to a specific religion

Faith, religion, beliefs. What do they all actually mean?

I used to say i hate religion, it causes war. I thought you only had beliefs if you followed a religion and as I didn’t believe in anything, I didn’t have faith.

In reality we are all religious to some extent, we live our lives following our own beliefs about things perhaps not about a god but we do have beliefs about how the world works.

The other evening I had a very interesting discussion with a man when he questioned If I was religious. I said I was trying to remain open minded to my beliefs as I was open to change and developing new beliefs. This man was an athiest and therefore did not consider himself religious as such.

I explained to him that in recent months my beliefs had changed, I started believing in a ‘higher power’, a ‘god’ if you like. I believe that we are all a creation of the higher power, therefore we have a part of the higher power within us. I don’t relate the higher power to any specific religion but only what I choose it to be. The man questioned why I believed in this, and its simply because my life has changed drastically in the last 6 months since I’ve had faith in a higher power.

Carrying on with the conversation, he started questioning me on my values of letting things go, not reacting to situations and creating suffering for myself and others. The scenario he used was

‘Someone pushes into you in the street and starts having a go at you, pushing you about, would you not defend yourself and fight back?’

There’s a difference I believe in defending ourselves and fighting back. Fighting only causes more conflict, drama and suffering – for myself and the other person involved. It is only the ego within us that wants to fight back and react.

My reply was ‘I would try to respond, not react’. Many hurtful words and actions come from the ego’s reaction, whereas if we take a step back and respond to the situation calmly, we will get a different response from the other person.

Back to beliefs – This man couldn’t understand that I didn’t have any future plans, goals, what I will be doing in 5 or 10 years time. This does work for some people, you might be one, on the other hand you may be like me and get stressed or anxious if we set high goals for ourselves and look too far into the uncertain future.

I have faith that in 5 years time I will be doing exactly what I need to be doing. I believe that anything that comes my way is meant to be, i will try to accept everything that comes with open arms instead of resistance. Having faith in the higher power means I feel safe, it means i can live life from a place of love instead of fear. I have always been worried about what I’d do in the future, now I feel that it’s ok, all is well, all will work out just as they’re meant to.

Some people may read this and think, ‘she’s living in lala land not reality’. I probably would’ve read this two years ago and thought the same. The reason I believe the way I do is simply because I am living proof. I chose a completely different path of life to the one I had planned, It scared me to death not having plans for my future.  Hence I was wasting the present moment of my life, which lead to months of worrying and anxiety because I was looking too far into the future. Now I see it was all exactly how it was meant to be, those months of suffering was to get me to where I am today. I wouldn’t be in Australia, writing this blog right now otherwise, and right now there’s no other place I’d rather be.

The conversation ended up with me starting to feel slightly anxious about my future, with my mind starting to build up thoughts of setting myself a plan. The thing is life changes, plans change and I have no control over that. Therefore I will go with the flow, experience what I need to that’ll give me answers, and have faith that everything that I need will come to me.

Faith comes from a place of love, not fear.

I’m not saying you should all believe in a god, or a higher power. I’m saying, believe in whatever you want to believe in. Become interested, pay attention to your beliefs. What do you really believe in, forget about society, family and friends – they’re not you and they will respect whatever you choose. 🙂

If anyone is interested in reading more about positive affirations, how energy connects us and the higher power then have a read of Louise.L.Hay’s books or Eckhart Tolle. Life changing 🙂
