Harvest & Thanksgiving

Harvest time and its’ heavenly counterpart, a harvest moon, has come to mean something we usually only apply to farmers, land owners and gardeners. So, whenever we think of harvest we tend to think of crops, growing vegetables in the back garden and all those people with dirt under their fingernails.

Of course, harvest is all of that and much more when it comes to planting and growing things, especially our food and the many wonderful late summer goodies we can find in the hedgerows such as berries and sloes.

But, there is another side to this harvest issue which many of us are aware of and apart of, without always seeing the similar processes as they play out in our lives. Many things in our day-to-day existence come to be because of this natural pattern of planting, growing and harvesting.

For instance, when we have an idea or a wish – sometimes we take this desire to the next level, creating a plan or taking some kind of action. For those who are persistent and determined, the wish, the plan and these actions eventually take shape and come into form.

So, when I look up this word harvest to have a peek at it’s roots, I see the standard meanings related to gathering crops….but then I also a deeper meaning using words such as ‘the result or consequence of actions, processes and events’. 

That’s what I am looking for here….

This is the time of year when we are reaping all we have sown over these past few months (and perhaps far beyond that). It can be the culmination and coming together of some of our wishes, hopes and dreams – at least the ones we have taken specific action on, making every effort to grow them into this physical reality.

I have long been a dreamer – I dream profusely at night and during the day it seems (or so they tell me!)….in times past this would have slowed me down because I wasn’t always connecting this dream state into my world with doing. 

It appears this can only be done with consistent, persistent and carefully thought out actions….who knew? (smile)

Once I had read enough, heard enough and was frustrated enough (LOL) with many of these wishes not amounting into anything worthwhile, I started to see that when I took specific actions….well, there were usually consequences!

And sometimes…..those results ended up being the ones I was looking for. 

As the years have flown by, I have become far more intuitive in my approach to my dreaming as well as more grounded in my body and life. Each of these situations helps us to manifest more of our dreams – creating our reality as we go….

A harvest moon is about far more then just vegetables, fruits and the bounty from our gardens….it could be about careful planning, big dreaming and taking chances throughout the year. 

Sometimes when we plant an idea….a garden springs up around it and that dream, this wish, becomes our life. And I am so very thankful for that.

You May be Awake….But Are You ALIVE? Spiritual DNA

We read a lot about awakenings these days and nearly everyone has had some form of a wake up call or other, often in a health or emotional crisis. Actually if you haven’t yet, you are probably not even reading this, but never mind.

I have talked about and written down some of my experiences on this long road to higher vibrations, frequencies and light but am only now coming around to how much none of this really even matters, if we are not alive, that is.

Of course you are probably thinking by now, that I am ‘alive’, I’m here, aren’t I? And yes you are, sort of, however, we are not fully here and certainly not enjoying any of the benefits of greater levels of awareness, if our gut is still functioning at sub-optimal levels.

But, what does digestion, immune function, gut organisms have to do with spirituality and higher states of awareness? 

Everything. Absolutely, everything.

Whenever we take medication, treated water, Nightshades, drugs, eat an excessively poor diet, remain in negative states of emotional, physical, energetic unbalance, plus other known and unknown toxins - then we are encouraging the current organisms in our guts to flourish. 

And this appears to be the source of the problem. From birth and perhaps even before, the organisms we are exposed to are increasingly non-beneficial, opportunistic and pathogenic given the chance! We are full of molds, candida, parasites and species of bacteria that offer us nothing in return.

This present generation and perhaps a couple beyond that, those who have been around since the advent and widespread use of antibiotics and medication – have dead spots, places and spaces in their systems where nothing worthwhile or beneficial lives or thrives. 

The simple facts are; Change your body and gut flora (living organisms of bacteria, yeasts, viruses etc.) and you change your DNA. The human DNA is unique in that our spiritual code is written within it like a hidden Easter Egg. 

And this is the purpose of the spiritual path really. To walk along it, making changes, learning, gaining insight, higher levels of awareness until eventually we realize – it’s all about life.

Nothing is more important to our body functions, health, weight, immune system and skin then the living organisms cohabiting with us – without them, we are here, we might be awake, but we are certainly not living and our spiritual purposes, missions and callings remain locked. 

It’s time to get a life – inside and out!

In Sickness & Health…..The Lifespan of a Healer

Being a healer takes a lot of energy from you, walking the spiritual path, self care, listening, paying attention, learning how to live….or at least it can – but lets get one thing straight right from the beginning: if you are supposed to be doing this work - at this level, touching on higher dimensions and consciousness, then you are more then able to handle this physical end of things.

However, if you find you are not able or up to the work you are born to do….perhaps there are other factors at play here. Of course there are many things, on many levels, taking place in the daily life of a healer, therapist, energy or light worker, and some of them are actually working against us.

For instance, have you ever noticed there is often no rhyme or reason to your work-flow? Some weeks you have nearly ‘enough’ to live on (LOL) while other weeks – no matter what you do or how good you are at it, the phone doesn’t ring and you can sense the energy blocks.

How about having days when you feel great, up and with it, only to come crashing down into a patch of darkness or despair that you picked up somewhere or worse, becoming physically ill in specific situations or around certain people?

And has anyone else experienced profound, debilitating fear when dealing with energy attachments, energy vampires and other cyber bullies? Just where does all of this go and where does it come from in the first place, but most importantly, what effect might it have on us?

Well, each of these things certainly do affect us, can potentially cause harm to our body/mind/spirit and can put us off the mission we are called to do. This is far more then an occupational hazard – in our profession, there is no safety training (come out Tuesday evenings starting 5 November for the first one ever!), there is only follow your heart and hope for the best in most cases. 

But, there is one other issue that I have long felt impacts on us in far deeper ways….yes, there is something worse then ups and downs, aches and pains, uncertainty and fear! What is worse, and fairly constant throughout the healing world, is how we are constantly placed in abject poverty in the name of some higher good. 

Because, this is just not on.

Each of these situations take an enormous toll on our sense of well-being, our physical and emotional health, our attitude, outlook, hopes, wishes and dreams. When a persons spirit is continually bounced off the bottom – it eventually stops re-bounding to it’s natural, and necessary, place. 

And, we end up unwell. Many healers I have known over the years end up with diabetes, arthritis, chronic fatigue, cancer (ask me how I know) and other debilitating conditions as a direct result of the work they do – and the energies we are exposed to. Of course, this shortens our life/work span for us, not to mention interfering with our quality of life. 

I have often thought that if we were to do this work ‘properly’ at the highest level in the current environment – we would last about 2 years before we started to crumble on the inside and then find ourselves unable to continue in this full capacity. 

So what exactly are we up against?

Energy Vampires (shadow realm)
Ill will (in deed and thought)
Interference Energy (often listening to the wrong voice)
Timing & Energy Blocks (if it doesn’t belong, remove it)
Fear (extreme emotional response coming in from the outside)
Unhealthy mind/body/spirit (focus on the body’s health)
Past Life Issues (things we bring in with us, but are not always ours)
Energy Attachments & Drainers (the ‘will nots’ of spirituality, viruses, candida etc.)

This list goes on……each one of these things affect us on an energetic, spiritual, physical and emotional level. Anything that doesn’t belong to us, but is around or attached to us, can and will create an energy block…..and nothing appears to be more stuck then this ‘money, financial, work, mission, purpose’ cycle of modern day healers, which of course leads to more physical ill health…..

Evening Class - Starts 5th November

Protecting Yourself in the Healing Professions…..

If you find you are bringing your work home, feeling drained at the end of the day, losing heart with all you do – part of this problem will be energetic. But, there is so much you can do to make yourself feel better, regain your energy, boost your health – when you know more about the mechanics of how your energy field works.

On offer are evening sessions (sharing & learning circle) on how to protect, heal, fix, alter, change and shore up your energy field while living, working and walking in today’s world. During each of these classes we will explore how an energy field works, how damage occurs, what we can expect to change, how long it will take, Closing Energy Leaks, energy vampires and how to start taking immediate steps to heal and seal your body.

Following April’s list of ‘25 ways to Protect Yourself’ from her book Universal Energy Laws, we will work down through each one as it applies to your work, how you go about your day, carry out your spiritual practice, cope with family and relationships, adjust to stress and change while listening to your body. 

These classes will serve to uplift you, give you hope and change your life. You deserve to live, work and play with the peace of mind a strong, healthy functioning energy field brings. We will take it week by week….usually runs for 5 or 6 weeks then break for Christmas…come to one or enjoy all!
