Is it possible that by working on the things we resist and procrastinate over in our outer world, that we can affect our inner world? A bit like energetic surgery, in reverse. And from my experience, I would most definitely say that “yes” – “yes, it is.”
A moment of regret, frustration, disappointment, wondering why different choices were not and are not made, a life lived less than all that I am and that it could be…
These were some of the feelings that washed over me one morning recently after attending a Universal Medicine event: my own regret and devastation of living life in delay, in avoidance of living all of me in every single moment.
This morning on my walk I decided to go ‘the other way around’ and turned left and not right on one of my chosen routes.
And it was quite the experience.
I noticed things that I have never seen before; houses, gardens, trees, flowers, angles, and even new roadkill!

Does this sound familiar – coming home, having a cuppa, a beer or a joint, a bit of chocolate, feet up in front of the tele to ‘wind down’ from the day? Or a yoga session followed by a bath with scented oils? Or off into one’s room with the door closed, to shut out the family and the world and do your own thing? Ah… sanctuary from the madness and demands!
You know how it goes; a world of humans expressing their emotions and thoughts, like 7 billion devices blasting out their waves at full volume… Continue reading “Bracing For Impact (in a Crazy, Scary World of Energy)”
A lot of parents wish to protect their children from the harshness of the world and from the very confronting and mean behaviour that children especially encounter in high school. However, does sheltering your child truly protect them from what is going on in the world?
In my own experience I would answer this question with a clear No. Continue reading “Does Growing up Sheltered Protect you from the World?”
