Turn and Face the Strange – A Call to Your Higher Purpose

Turn and Face the Strange – A Call to Your Higher Purpose

For about 3 days I haven’t been able to shake David Bowie’s ‘Changes’ song out of my head. Today however, it had me thinking a little deeper about the lyrics ‘Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes. Turn and face the strange…..’ in relation to taking a journey towards a different version of your life.

Whenever we are called to make big change in our lives, normally by a higher version of ourselves, our first temptation is to refuse the call. This is understandable because there is a major part of us who is desperate to stay safe and comfortable in a bubble, in our ordinary world. This is the world you grew up in, clear parameters, rules and formulas to abide by.

However there is a small number of us whose souls don’t give up on calling us toward a greater vision. It gets stronger and stronger and louder and louder. A deep knowing formulates within us that we are destined to live a different life. A life that is unfamiliar and completely unknown, yet you know you have a higher purpose to fulfill.

It is scary and you will try to ignore it. It keeps nagging and nagging at you.

Then all of a sudden, something makes you take notice, a synchronicity that can’t be ignored or an opportunity that is super intriguing. This is when you are terribly afraid but everything inside of you is going to go for it anyway, even against the ‘better’ judgement of those around you. This is when you “turn and face the strange”.

Once you look, you can’t turn back. That is your first courageous action, looking in the direction of the unknown, towards the path you have just agreed to take.

In every adventurer’s journey, the first step is the hardest because you feel aloneand that is because you are. It is a very intimate agreement between your spirit and physical self and because you have free will, you are given the space to make it.

Despite being afraid and unsure, you will begin your journey towards a new type of wisdom and you will feel alone on that first step.

This step however is your first experience of growth, because although you were alone – you felt empowered. You reclaimed something within you, a dormant part of you. This is a reward for your trust.

Next, is when you will meet a guide or a mentor who will take you further down your new path, towards your higher purpose.Every step on your journey will be met with new guides, new insight and new revelations on what our wonderful and magical world is really about. That you can count on.

This story today, is to encourage you that although it is a journey into the strange, it will be worth it.  Yes, it will be scary, yes it will involve some work but the rewards will be far greater than you can imagine.

You may get stuck here and there or you may fly through it but ultimately you will find joy, peace and happiness. The only thing you will lose is your comfort zone, but essentially, that is where your life will begin.

When you turn to face the strange, you a looking at a new truth, a new version of you and quite possibly a new perspective of the world at large. This will be the most exciting adventure of your lifeand there is so much support and encouragement for those who take that leap of faith.

Now Within the Hearts of Many a New Dream Stirs

Now Within the Hearts of Many a New Dream Stirs

At this present time there are two realities are emerging. One is driven by fear and separation that is leading us on a path to nowhere. The other is a new dream that has been born in heart’s of love, people looking to be connected to each other again and surrounded by nature. The choice is now upon us to determine which path will warm our own heart and lead us to the happiness we crave in our lives.

Dear soul, aren’t you tired of striving to find something which appears to be unattainable. Where is this illusive satisfaction and happy life you were promised in your youth? The path has always been there for you to find however you must make the conscious choice to move towards it and do things your own way. This may mean giving up the false beliefs and following false prophets into the abyss that they promise you exists.

A wise woman once said to me ‘ Vanessa, you have two choices. Keep allowing the magic into your life or go back to being like everyone else’. Those two choices face us every day and I personally continue to choose the magic. I believe we are here to experience joy and creation and when we are in these states we are fulfilling our purpose. Anything less than that is following someone else’s game and the rules are never going to be in our favour.

It is time to stop waiting for the right time and the right circumstances to line up to change the direction we are heading in – we get to choose and we get to choose when we take that step. There are many people who are choosing happiness and a natural flow over a life of striving to be and to have. They are within the beauty of a new way of being so that more uplifting creations may be born. This dream is upon us now and is calling upon those who seek a better way.

 

 

 

 

The pressing need to create our new reality and how you can play a part

The pressing need to create our new reality and how you can play a part

We are entering a time when there is a split in realities. One path leads to an artificial, technocratic world and the other is what the rest of us shape it to be.

There is a big reason why we are seeing a huge split between the two directions, because one offers a world that takes our power away, censors our ability to have our unique perspectives and paths and many freedoms and the other reality is about becoming empowered and setting a new course for our future. One is aligned with our souls and the other is not. This is no coincidence and if you want to be part of a new reality we have to actively create it.

So as invested people in our futures, we must ask where is our world going and do we want to go there? This one simple questions fails to be asked by the majority of us and we go along with the momentum towards a direction where people are not thriving, remain in a position where we are influenced and coerced by others and the entire system leads us to where it wants to go. 

So what can we as individuals do to change things and why should we? 

We have the ability to adapt our own lives and set a course for amazing change. There are already many people shifting their perception of the world and visualising a different path which is opening up right before our very eyes. By understanding the principles of law of attraction and identifying what really makes us happy we start focusing on outcomes and generating momentum towards this new direction. I believe the majority of us, apart from those scarry sociopaths, want a world in which we all flourish and gain deep fulfilment, immersing ourselves in the magic of life, nature and the universe. 

If this is you, then it is time to start working towards your own vision of a beautiful life. Turn your attention on the outcome and lifestyle you want to create and on all the things that make you happy. Learn the art of manifestation and apply it to every area of your life and our world will turn into the paradise it was always meant to be and currently is underneath the veil of technology and order. 

We  are powerful creators and the purpose of life is to create, so lets use this energy and all our abilities to set this course to a wonderful, glorious world where we love our lives, our children are inspired and we are aligned to the heart of ourselves, our communities and our planet. It is our time to thrive, let’s own it!

 

Your Dream Life is Just Around the Corner: 6 Secrets to Becoming a Visionary Mama!

Your Dream Life is Just Around the Corner: 6 Secrets to Becoming a Visionary Mama!

Not today.. says your reflection in the mirror unconsciously closing the door to your happiness and carrying your desires away with the current. Another day has come, and yet your dream of becoming the woman you’ve always wanted to be seems more distant.  As if caught in a time loop, you see this dream slowly slipping away, and you can’t let that happen.

Women tend to lead from the heart. And often, we give all our love, devotion and care to others forgetting about taking care of our own needs and desires.

The secret that often goes untold is that while you are pottering around on this planet, there’s still time to fulfill your deepest desires and create the life you’ve always wanted to live. It all comes down to you and how ready you are to welcome this new life into your heart and home.

Being a Mama is a gift and a blessing.. it always helps to remember.

But as the cycle of life dictates, this Mama has once been a girl who had big dreams of becoming a happy woman, living her life with purpose and excitement, and building a strong and loving family.

Now imagine a reality where this dream had come true – your reality.

William Arthur Ward once said “If you can imagine it, you can create it. If you can dream it, you can become it”.

The fact that you’re reading this now is a sign that you’re willing and ready to create this new dream and live happily ever after.

Become Heart Aligned and be True to Yourself

“A woman in harmony with her spirit is like a river flowing. She goes where she will without pretense and arrives at the destination prepared to be herself and only herself”.

The wisdom of poetry cannot lie. It comes from the heart. It holds the truth. And the truth is,

it takes courage to listen to your heart and be true to yourself. We lose our purpose in life when we allow our mind to dictate our actions and our experiences.

Allow the flower within to bloom and open your heart as it will ignite the flame that has been dormant for a long while and awaken the life energy needed to give shape to your dream.

When the heart dictates our actions and our experiences, we vibrate with joy, and our heart sings with love.

Create a Vision for Your Family

The bonds we share with our family, by birth or marriage, have a huge impact on our emotional well-being. Cultivating the art of togetherness in a space of love nurtures and guides the development of happy children who understand the importance of honoring their own hearts and souls.

As a wife and a Mama, you have a priceless role of nurturing your own heart desires while creating a thriving environment where all family members feel valued, loved and appreciated for their uniqueness. Creating a vision for your family life is the secret to building a happy and healthy family. Cultivate your spiritual connection with your loved one to fortify your life partnership.

Become clear on how you want to engage the heart and mind of your children. Whilst you cannot mold them, you can unfold them to be loving and compassionate and true to themselves.

Manifest your Intentions

“Words may inspire but only action creates change”.

It is not enough to crave the change, you have to set an intention and make the commitment. This is the key to transforming your dream into reality. It is the little choices you make in your everyday life that will lead you to living the life you want. There is but one degree of commitment, total. Your commitment and passion should consume you to the extent that you start believing and acting like you’re living your family dream already.

Give yourself the permission to make mistakes along the way. Your mistakes do not define you. Everything is a learning opportunity and leading you to your chosen path. Embrace your imperfections and let your heart guide you – you will shift to your new life path and manifest your wildest dreams in a more natural and graceful way.

Embrace & Celebrate your Uniqueness

We’ve been raised to embrace the idea of collectiveness where each individual plays the role they are given, mainly absorbed through their experiences with their family. However until recently society failed to understand that “we’re all unique, and have our own special place in the puzzle of the universe”. Over time, perceptions have changed, and uniqueness isn’t now seen as a weakness or threat, but a strength and opportunity, as it always should have been.

Once you embrace your uniqueness, you will learn more about who you are and what you like. It will give you strength to realize your potential. It is the way out of the rut if you want to make a huge leap forward and build your own business that will mean more time to spend at home with your children. Use the power of uniqueness as fuel to do whatever you have in mind. By celebrating your uniqueness you can transform your life.

Most importantly, this will inspire your children to follow in your footsteps and use their uniqueness to shape a fulfilling life.

The Art of Letting Go of Anything Holding You Back

Easier said than done, letting go is probably the most difficult thing to do. Under Freytag’s pyramid, this would be known as the climax part of the plot, the drama that plays a decisive role in your transformation process. It means giving up on things you’ve collected through life that are toxic – any thoughts, habits, relationships that have accompanied you through years and made you miserable.  These things are energetically draining you and sucking the life out of you, and cutting cords with them is a part of the process. You know it has been the right decision when you enter a sense of serenity that brings calmness within.

Gratefulness is a Choice

We usually live in the past and the future, but not the present. We relive moments, we envision future events, but we never concentrate on the Now. Gratefulness is a choice you consciously make to embrace and celebrate life as it is. It is a choice you make to enjoy life, and this is what our children are so good at. It is their innate instinct to be happy in the Now, play, laugh, have fun.. and instead of playing the part of demanding parents, we should stop and listen. There’s so much knowledge we can learn from them. When was the last time you watched your children play?!

Anything in a woman’s hands is possible. You have the chance to take your family life in your own hands, give it shape and form, color and warmth to thrive and grow.

 

Raise Your Vibration with Gratitude

Raise Your Vibration with Gratitude

Raising Your Vibration with Gratitude

“Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” – Melody Beattie

In the Oxford dictionary, the definition of being Grateful is the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation and to return kindness. My interpretation of this definition, is that there is an exchange of energy – you are thankful for receiving and as a result you express kindness (and love). When you practice being grateful for all that you already have, you are express a positive energy.

Several years ago I decided to do a Gratitude experiment and express my gratitude as much a possible throughout each day over a month. The results were astounding in terms of raising my vibration. I noticed that focusing on a situation or an object that I was grateful for, released an energy of pure love and I started receiving more things to be grateful for including opportunities, friendships, inspiring conversations and material items. All of sudden, my energy was pulsating higher and higher and I gained momentum towards feeling good and then amazing.

When it comes to the Law of Attraction – we bring to us more of the same of what we are giving out. If we are feeling grateful and excited about what we already have, the Universe will bring us more things to feel grateful about – it is the fundamental law of attraction. I recommend if you want to raise your vibration to attract more of what you desire into your life, than conduct a Gratitude experiment and start enjoying the results.

Here is how to do a Gratitude Experiment:

  1. Write a list of ten things you are grateful for each day in a notebook or journal.  No need to get fancy, just any paper will do.
  2. Each day, add a theme to your gratitude list i.e. health, money, relationships and so on
  3. After a week, start adding your desires to the list as if you already received them i.e. I am grateful I have my coffee machine as I absolutely love making fresh coffee in the morning (try to add feeling when you talk about desires)
  4. Rotate your themes and keep adding new desires as if they have happened throughout the 28 days
  5. All throughout your day, be mindful of what you are grateful for. The longer you remain in a state of gratefulness throughout each day, the more amazing you will feel.
  6. At the end of each week, write a letter to someone telling them of all the wonderful situations, relationships and new opportunities that appeared in your life (those that happened and yet to come).

Bonne chance! Good Luck.

P.S. If you would prefer a step by step book on Gratitude, I recommend ‘The Magic’ by Rhonda Byrnes.
