A Soul's Journey

A Soul’s Journey 77
So as I have quoted before, " No man is your friend, no man is your enemy, every man is your teacher." Florence Skoval Shin When you become aware of this you see people in a different light. No one is there to hurt you in any way, shape or form but merely here as an actor in your play. Here to help you grow and learn. So for me, this is the way I try to look at all the people in my life - especially the ones I have fractious relationships with. Sometimes I slip back into operating...

So I met Jules at the dog park at the end of our street after I had a sneaky double cheeseburger from Macca's in Richmond - energy work can be hungry work! We had had a bad week, and what was revealed, a necessary step for both of us, every situation pushing us closer to where we are meant to be. After all that throat-clearing I had certainly found my voice, and I let it fly - with everything I hadn't said for years. It wasn't until sometime later, I realized that the two things I had said to him,...

We took a break. The tears were still flowing. Beautiful Jason came and sat with me, he looked at me and quietly said, "That's why you came. You came to be seen and heard. It's time" Then he too started speaking in light language. He is incredible. It was like a familiar voice, one I recognized instantly. I felt understood, and so incredibly supported and so at home. Another beautiful lady came up and just put her hand on my heart. "That was a big release," she said, "I hope you don't mind but I just need to put my...

I took a deep breath and spoke. I had my eyes closed tightly shut as the tears kept flowing, I was rocking and rubbing my third eye, hiding my face from everyone. I knew I had to express how I was feeling - speak my truth and it was hard. I said I was feeling deep humiliation. (I was feeling it too) I said I felt that I had to hide, that it wasn't safe for me to be seen. I said I felt my voice wasn't worth hearing. I said I felt "they' had stolen my truth. The bottom...

When Michael started on the second session the tears flowed immediately - and they didn't stop for a long time. I was hysterical, sobbing. But I was safe, the safest I had ever felt surrounded by a room full of strangers but so very at home with every one of these beings. The Universe had supplied me with a room full of angels all there to support me through this enormous karmic ending. Now it wasn't just ending that day, it has been in the process of ending for some time now but I felt as though this was the...

As we were all gathering in the room I was beyond excited to see a familiar face. We had shared the dance floor together for 7 weeks as we took part in a kundalini dance workshop in Fitzroy. (I'll chat about that awesome experience later!) It was nice to see a familiar face. She and Jason were the only ones I knew out of a room of some forty people. It was quite simply one of the most extraordinary workshops I had ever attended. We worked through each energy centre, each chakra starting at the root and after the heart,...

"Synchronicity and flow......" The first text I received from him was completely out of the blue. It was coming up to the 8th of August, which is a huge energetic gateway. He sent me a link to an amazing article on LionsGate which helped me make sense of some of the turmoil I was experiencing at that time. The second was a few weeks ago. It simply read... "Thought this event might be of interest. Michael is amazing and his activations powerful. I'm going", along with a link to the event. I booked that very second. It was two days...

I journal everything and have done it since 2013. I have volumes of black books full of writing and painting and they are so incredibly enlightening. When I write I remember things and it puts things in perspective and I can follow my journey and see how things evolve, or rather how things manifest into my physical reality. You are co-creator of your universe, energetically tied to source energy and everyone and everything in this entire universe. I am going through a massive transformation in my life and it has certainly had its ups and downs but being aware all...

"Wake Up, Wake Up, Wake Up......" So why am I telling you all this? Because I want you to become aware of the fact that you are an energetic being and when you are feeling unwell, or things aren't going right - it is in your hands to change it. If I kept on going the way things were - nothing in my life would have changed. (and that's fine if you're happy with your life - don't change it!) But I wanted to change, so I had to take action, to change the vibration. If we want something then...

There is a process taking place at the moment on this earthly plane. It's a process of ascension that allows a higher vibrational frequency to enter our physical beings here on earth. It's about vibrating at the frequency of the fifth dimension but remaining in the third. Creating heaven on earth. Our universe is made up of different vibrational frequencies. It's divided into 4 realms and 12 dimensions. We, as physical beings are experiencing the third dimension. Some of us are here to make this transition and to prepare the body for the higher vibrational frequency, things have to be...

The more healing work you do, the closer your authentic truth is uncovered, or your light, if you prefer this term and the more your intuition is revealed. I've also talked about The Untethered Soul and how Michael Singer says to 'drop back' all the time. I didn't quite understand this at first, but the more healing I do the more clarity I have. For me dropping back means to release the ego, the mind, and trust spirit more, your heart. I think one of the major things we have misinterpreted is that we are physical beings. Full stop. We...

"Am I going to live 90 years, or am I going to live 1 year, 90 times, over and over again?" Wayne Dyer I've talked a lot about my need for freedom and independence. I am choosing not to go along with the structure and rigidity anymore but instead go with the flow and allow things to unfold naturally as the universe intended. I'm learning to get out of my way - stop trying to shape things and let life flow through me more. Trying to control things causes blocks - stops us from getting where we need to go....

People will come along to frighten you. They are your teachers - just there to help you reaffirm your decision - to remind you to find your centre and stand in your power. I admit that when I made the decision I was terrified. I was walking down Glenferrie Road and the fear was very real. It was visceral, the feeling, almost overwhelming. What would it mean for the family? What would it mean for Jules? What would it mean for me? I had to be strong - stand by my decision. I had to honor the fear, walk with...

For me, I guess it's about balance, learning how to find freedom within a relationship - if indeed another relationship presents itself. I'm lucky I don't find being alone challenging - I quite enjoy my own company, doing my own thing, traveling by myself. I find it hard to feel restricted in any way, and this presented a challenge in our marriage. I'm not saying that would be the case for all people but it was for me. I'm realizing now, that at the end of the day I need to live for myself and allow love to come through...

I’ve always been a bit of a free spirit - freedom, and independence have always been important to me but for some reason, I have never chosen freedom and independence - I have chosen to be tied down and co-dependent. As I said earlier, I went from being a child, a daughter in my parent's home, to being a wife - I have never experienced independence. When I look back now, I sort of see what it means to have built a life on unstable foundations. Yes, we were in love, madly and deeply, that was undeniable, but we are...

I arrived in Melbourne on Monday and received the text on Tuesday. Trina said she had a cancelation and no one on the waitlist could fill the spot. Thanks, Universe! It seems the spot belonged to me. Trina is a Medical Medium and I have only seen her in person twice. The first time I saw her was in January of 2013 at the recommendation of a friend. In Byron Bay two months later, I had a spiritual awakening - it changed my entire life. The second time was in October of 2018. I decided to move to Melbourne on...

"A lightning bolt of clarity and insight cuts through the lies and illusions you have been telling yourself, and now the truth comes to light. Your world may come crashing down before you, in ways you could never have imagined as you realize that you have been building your life on unstable foundations" Yep, that's how it unfolded. One minute I was living the dream, the next a nightmare, and it all seemed to happen in the blink of an eye. But throughout the chaos and confusion has come a sense of peace and clarity. It has taken a while...

I don’t make my choices following other people’s views. I don’t make my choices following society's views. I don’t make my choices following vows and traditions. I make my choices following my heart. Well, now I do anyway. It’s taken me a while to understand this concept - but now that I have made the bold move of stepping out independently - I don't think I could ever go back. I am following my heart and not regretting a minute of my decision. Well, it's early days and things may change - we're always in a state of flux or...

"The Upright Tower......" "When the Tower card appears in a Tarot reading, expect the unexpected – massive change, upheaval, destruction and chaos. It may be a divorce, death of a loved one, financial failure, health problems, natural disaster, job loss or any event that shakes you to your core, affecting you spiritually, mentally and physically. There’s no escaping it. Change is here to tear things up, create chaos and destroy everything in its path (but trust me, it’s for your Highest Good). Just when you think you’re safe and comfortable, a Tower moment hits and throws you for a loop....

"All Along The WatchTower......" Lots of things led to the breakdown of our marriage. I would say the last seven years were the toughest for both of us. I’m not sure if you are familiar with the Tower card in tarot - but that was our life. Moment upon moment of challenges, until something had to give. We can look at these tower moments in a bad light or we can look at these tower moments as an opportunity to clear and cleanse - out with the old, in with the new. So many catastrophic events were happening for us...

“A Choice of Comfort or Freedom......” I did this because I didn’t want to create a stir. In my mind, if I spoke out I would be reprimanded. Speaking out wasn’t ladylike Having my needs met wasn’t important You put others first before yourself I’m not proud of these belief systems, but I am proud of the fact that I have finally recognized them for what they are. Detrimental. Detrimental to my happiness, my peace and my joy - detrimental to my self. As we grow we create these belief systems, these patterns of behavior - and most of the...

"Over and Over Again........" The Universe sets up little scenarios, especially for us, to help us grow. Yes, you have heard it all before, life is a classroom. If we don’t pass the test the first time, we will have to take the test again. And again, and again, if we don’t learn the lesson. I married quite young - at 23 years of age. I had gone straight from being a daughter at home with my parents to being a wife, pregnant with my first child, six months after our wedding. Reflecting one day on my marriage, it occurred...

"Trust The Process......." It all started unraveling when we made the move back to Australia from Singapore in June 2017. My marriage that is. I didn’t want to move - I was the happiest I’d ever been in my life, but the universe stepped in and here I was, roaming the streets of North Sydney, feeling like a stranger in a strange land. I tried to keep it together - my study had taught me to remain positive and optimistic - that where I was, was indeed where I was meant to be. "Let it unfold naturally", I'd tell myself,...

"Time flies........" Oh boy! So much time has passed since I last wrote - for this particular blog anyway. Three years in fact. And my-oh-my how things have changed. I write because it helps clear my energy, gets it out of my system and I hope through writing about my personal experiences - I may help you through yours. My focus in this blog is on energy healing but more specifically energy and once you become aware of it, how it can change your life. I would like to share what I have been taught and how it can help...

"De Ja Vu.........." ...and so 2016 was drawing to a close. Another big year for my spiritual journey. The integration of The Divine Goddess and a healed heart, amongst other things. But something wasn't quite right, and it seemed history was indeed repeating itself. In November of 2016 our third child Remy would be diagnosed with anxiety and depression. He went to the school councillor after seeing an ad for men's mental health on Facebook and realising he felt the same way, went to seek help. http://manup.org.au And so we would roll up our sleeves, dig deep, gather our resources and...

"Healing Hands, Healing Heart......" I love the way Dr Theo works. He is subtle. He takes his time to 'suss' you out - to see if you're a seeker and then he will guide you. Slowly and almost with a whisper, he will just utter two or three things but they are of vital importance, direct guidance and clues as to your next steps. It was taking a while to clear the pain in my heart, and it hurt! It hurt a lot! But we got there. Eventually. I had to pay a visit to Paul Filmer down at The...

"A Heart Full of Love.........." Well. I have a plethora of spiritual guides to thank for their assistance in healing my 'broken heart'. I knew it wasn't from this lifetime, and I now know why Patrick had entered my life all those years ago. I was ready to heal this broken heart - albeit centuries later. This is what I believe happens. We carry things over from one lifetime to the next. Until we are ready to heal. Ready to release karma. Ready to learn our lessons. Ready to ascend. I was ready now. It was another opportunity for me...

"Integration........" The Divine Goddess had been unleashed and now it was time to integrate all that wonderful energy into my being. Tired of being suppressed and concealed, it was clear she was getting lonely in the closet! The simplest way to do the integration was to enter meditation and then using 'X', conjure up the EXACT  feelings he brought out in me. I had to be careful at this point, not to attach myself to feelings for him, just use the feeling he generated in me. Yantara had pointed out that once successfully activated my feelings for him would lessen, they...

"'X' + Y = Z............" He didn't miss a beat. "Were the feelings genuine?" "Yes" I replied, "Well that's fine" he laughed. "What's important here is the feeling" "For a long time you have been neglecting a part of your soul energy, your spirit. Maybe because of how you were raised, the school you went to, or society in general. You thought this energy was bad, not appropriate for a woman, but by not truly embracing this unique soul energy, you were denying your truth. It's like trying to cut off a piece of your divine energy, you can't! It's impossible!...

" Some Heavenly Healing Guidance.........." I always listen. Especially when anyone says, "you need to go and see this person", or "you must do this course" - it's all direct guidance from Spirit and I was like a bloodhound on a fox hunt - anything that would help me raise my resonance, heal my soul, clear my spirit - I was there! I was having breakfast one morning at Cluny Court with Dani and she looked at me and said, "Have you seen Yantara Jiro?" I laughed and said, "Is that his real name?" No sooner had we finished breakfast...

"TempleSoul......" It all started with a hand-full of friends. All willing to support me on my new healing journey. One friend helped me decorate it in record time, a consummate professional, thanks Nyella! Phuong from Art Blue Studio had adorned my walls with beautiful serene and healing Vietnamese Art, and my beautiful, glorious friends and family all came for healing, even the skeptical ones, I thank you from the bottom of my heart Tash and Gina. I tracked down my favourite incense I had found in Santa Margarita and it was delivered - it was just all too perfect, all...

"Going Home..........." I seriously could not get enough of this! Me. Rachael Cox. Studying! Who knew!!!!!!! Jules said I was like a kid in a candy shop. I'd ring Dani and excitedly declare..... "I know this, I know ALL this!!!!!" and she'd say, "I know chook, you're remembering". It would be a long journey of discovery - my memory is not my strongest asset - I forgot my own cousin in Rundle Street one day - sorry Sarah! But I was home. Well, at least half-way home. Realms and dimensions, Chakras and auras, Guides and angels, It was all so...

"Ch, ch, ch, ch, changes..........." January 2016 saw some big changes. Jules did The Hoffman Process and loved every second of it. It's a process, so it does take a while to integrate. Let's hope there are some noticeable changes. For me it was a whole new world. It was late January. Family and friends were filtering back from their holidays abroad, sun kissed and happy, nourished by the sun, the sea and the sand - getting a re-boot from Mother Nature - looking relaxed and radiating that post holiday glow. Ren, Dani and I sat having a drink in...

"Old bits and Soggy Chips......" I arose early the next morning. I packed enough things for the day and set off. I didn't want to see anyone. So much for telling the truth! If I had just lied about my feelings for 'X' and said I didn't have feelings for him, would any of this be happening???? The beach was magnificent, a haven for my aching soul. The sky was vast and blue, filled with the distinctive call of the gull. The wind blew ever-so slightly - caressing me softly - reassuring me everything would be alright. I walked, and walked,...

"A Fight About Nothing....." I crawled into bed, a smile on my face. I'd just had the most beautiful day. Friends and family, the perfect combination. I went to bed with the dulcet tones of Van Morrison's Bright Side of the Road, ringing in my ears. Our youngest had sleepily wandered in from the tv room where all the kids now soundly slept. Their skin ever so slightly warmed having been kissed by the sun. He snuggled up between us. Safe and sleepy. Then it happened. Out of nowhere, a tirade like no other about my supposed deep affection for Max!...

"Fury Road............." We had a lovely family Christmas at my sister Melissa's complete with children showcasing their musical talent and Annie and Papa getting misty-eyed when their grandsons grabbed their instruments and sang Van Morrison's Brown Eyed Girl - mum's favourite. A few days later we packed our bags and headed seaside. There's nothing quite like it. The beaches in Adelaide are amongst the best in the world! Sun. Surf and Sand. We would be enjoying every minute of this revitalising vacation. I posted a shot on Facebook of the kids playing beach cricket - it was a stunner! But...

"Mad Max.........." or "A pleasure to find such good mischief at 30,000 feet!" We had booked our flight at the last minute, which meant we were all separated. Julius and I were squished between two strangers in the middle row of four and the three boys were a few rows in front of us. Thankfully all together. I excused myself to the hooded gentleman at the end of our row and apologised for having to make him get out of his seat to let us sit down. I popped on my headphones, closed my eyes and listened to Mumford and Sons...

"A Healing Circle.........." Bali was healing. I did a lot of soul searching, a lot of clearing and had a visit from Saraswati - the Hindu Goddess of learning, music, creative arts, knowledge and wisdom. It was a powerful exchange and I could feel the divine energy coursing through my veins. I had four days of meditation and work on the inner; clearing, healing and expanding. Arga drove me to the airport four days later and we would say goodbye the way two old souls of 200 years would say goodbye, not two friends who had spent just 7 hours in each others...

"A Temple, A Teacher and some Time to Think........" I know I'm one of the lucky ones. Lucky because I have a husband I can share everything with. And although it's not easy at times, what ensues through disharmony and grief is profound and deep healing. Lucky because although he doesn't completely understand, he is in tune enough to see that my internal struggle has to be brought to the surface to be healed. It takes time to heal and is unpleasant at times. It is much easier to bury and suppress feelings rather than to stare them in the...

"Cold November Rain.............." I said earlier it was a while until I could put X to bed and the full force of my suppressed feelings would not make themselves known until later in the year. Much later. We were again heading to the end of another year. 2015 was drawing to a close. I had been meditating daily, drawing, painting, journaling, discovering, healing. Slowly making my way back home. My list of Spiritual practitioners grew steadily throughout the year. I was discovering kinesiology, past life regression, new healers, fabulous psychics and my book shelf was slowly filling up with tomes...

"Nurturing The Wild Spirit (cont'd).........." Dani and I would continue our meditation journey together and each time we met, the distant rumbles of another beautiful storm would begin and signal our continuing journey. I loved meditating with Dani, still do, and I loved painting what I saw when I meditated. I hadn't picked up a brush in a while, however for an artist it is like riding a bike. It feels good to paint. Natural. Painting after meditation for me, is not only an expression of what I saw but also part of the integration and channeling process. Illustrating how...

"Nurturing the Wild Spirit..........." Singapore storms are by nature wild, sultry, unpredictable and fierce..... and this one was no exception. It was hands down THE biggest storm I had witnessed since I moved to Singapore five years earlier. Not only that but we were in the very eye of it. Lightening was actually accompanying the raging thunder, there was no time to count the distance in between. No. It was right on top of us, all around us, on us and within us. We kept calm and kept meditating, Dani's voice rising slightly as she struggled to outmatch the deafening ire of...

"The Meditation Teacher.........." Ren was right, again. As I said earlier, the first time I had practiced meditation was in Byron Bay in early 2013 and my experiences were profound. I then meditated daily using the same techniques, receiving all sorts of delicious information from guides, angels, past lovers etc etc. I loved hanging out in this space. The non-physical is much more fun than the physical! Full of Angels, light, happiness, joy, guidance and love. Who wouldn't want to hang out there! When I first met Dani, it was a wild experience. I had set up a beautiful space...

"333.........." In Angel numbers 333 represents the Ascended Masters. They have responded to your prayers and wish to help and assist you in your endeavours. Well, thank goodness for that because I felt as though I could really do with their help right now. The day X left, I went back to bed after I had dropped the kids at school, was sipping on a cup of peppermint tea and looking through Facebook. My heart sank. Another beautiful friend of mine had drowned earlier that week. Although I hadn't seen him for twenty years and had lost contact, it was...

"The emptiest of feelings......." 2015 had only just begun and we had sadly said goodbye to an old friend. We had said goodbye to Mimes but had complete faith she would be ok. Now it was back to Singapore and time to say goodbye to X. I got a text one day that said he would like to give me something before he left. We arranged to meet. I got up that morning and Jules asked what I was doing that day. Please don't judge me here - I do tell the truth. Eventually. That day even!!! I said I...

"A Fresh Start.................." I had rung the psychiatrist that day and we had all agreed that putting her back on some medication would be the best plan. After the funeral, she just wanted to get out of Singapore. She bought her plane trip back to Australia forward by a few weeks. How was I going to leave her now? How, after everything she had been through could I possibly leave her now. We had all discussed moving back as a family, this would probably be best, but Jemima wouldn't have it. She unselfishly said she wanted her brother to finish...

"A Love Lost............." Her friends were remarkable. Her best friend got on the first plane out of Sydney and was in Singapore within 12 hours. All her friend's were  by her side within hours. They had set up camp in her room and would not leave her side until they felt they could. So from the elation of finishing school, to this. That evening our house was swarming. The adults had all come over, there was more food and drink than you could poke a stick at and no one touched a thing. I looked out through glazed eyes to...

"The Hurdle......." You know that sinking feeling you get when someone gives you bad news? The one where your blood literally runs cold? It was the morning of January 18th 2015. We had slept in. It was holiday's after all. I had turned over and reached for my phone. There was message after message. I felt sick. "Please Rachael, as soon as you are up can you call me?" I walked slowly outside. I couldn't feel myself. I had gone numb. Our son Jacob was in Melbourne at the beach with his girlfriend, could the news pertain to him? What...

"I Will Learn, I Will Learn to Love the Skies I'm Under..........." On November the 9th 2014 Jemima and I walked out of the gates of the Australian International School Singapore after her final Visual Art exam. This would be the last time we would ever have to walk that long path. Talk about being a proud mother and not because our daughter had just managed to complete year 12. (Only the year before we had talked about her not even doing it. Maybe just waiting until she felt better.) No. Proud because she had managed to complete year 12...

"Dancing a Merry Jig......" There were a few squabbles over X during the year, usually late at night and after drinking way too much. My birthday that year was out of control, in a fun way! My girlfriends had come to visit for three days and did we party like we never had before. It had been a while between drinks! Nothing like old friends to lift your spirits. In terms of squabbles, Christmas night that year was a doozy and had my parents not been in the room across the hall probably would have been much louder and may...

"The journey is as important as the destination......." So the year was progressing. We were having weekly visits to the psychologist with Jemima. She had recently broken up with her boyfriend of three years but all things considered she was making strong progress through her final year. In Year 11 she hardly made it to school but she was in a better space now and working hard. Julius had slowly adjusted to his new life and had managed to slowly unwind and enjoy his time off. The four months of gardening leave had finished and he was lucky enough to...

"That's what you called him" said Clive (mustn't have picked up on that bit) "What happened" I asked, a slight quiver in my voice. "Aah the two of you were in love.  It was mid 1700's. He was the farm boy and you the daughter of a wealthy aristocratic family in the UK. You lead quite a lonely life, your parents were there but not really present. They were busy at social functions and spent an inordinate amount of...

"Piecing together the puzzle......." At times this Spiritual Journey has been arduous and at others just plain comical. The search for Patrick was on and I was seeing every Psychic, Healer and Shaman in Singapore to find out just what went on. I had done past life regressions, tried kinesiology, anything that would hopefully give me the information I so longed for. But it was Clive Whitby who gave me the break-through I had been looking for. I had met Clive a few times at varying spiritual events but it was a psychic reading at Sacred Space in the Peninsula...

"To be sure, to be sure........" Ask anyone and they will all tell you of my lifelong obsession with all things Irish. From U2 to Guiness, my Irish Great-Grandmother and my relatives from Ballybunion. But nothing compared to my new obsession with Patrick. From that chakra walk-through I gathered he was Irish, he was a farm-boy, he was about 27. He lived in a small little out-house made of stone and it was long enough ago that there was only a fire and candles to light the room. There was that and the fact that he was incredibly handsome!

"Poor Julius......." In one of Doreen Virtue's Angel books was a meditation called A Chakra Walk-Through. It was one where you 'walked' through a passage-way and on either side of the passage was a coloured door. It started at black - the Earth Star Chakra, and went up through all the colours of the rainbow - Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet. You walked through and opened each door in turn. Someone would be in the room and would have a message for you. This meditation I will never forget and I now realise just how important it...

"Just one more hurdle......." At this stage of my Spiritual Journey I was meditating daily. I was receiving an increasing amount of messages from the non-physical realm. Was this real or just my imagination? It is a weird concept to wrap your head around. After all, we have only ever been taught that this physical world is our reality. Only weirdos and hippies talked about a world we couldn't 'see'. Luckily I'm ok with weirdo's and hippies and I embraced whole-heartedly this non-physical dimension. With ardent fervour I wrote down all the information I was receiving and it proved to...

"Smell is a potent wizard that transports you across thousands of miles and all the years you have lived......" Helen Keller That four months turned out to be a God-send. Finally, Julius had time to catch his breath. Although it wasn't without its challenges. He seemed very flat and I was wracking my brain to think of something that would lift his Spirit. Daily sleep-ins, afternoon's lazing by the pool, daily coffee's at Baker & Cook, but still something was missing. When the two of us were in the throws of passion and young love the one thing I remember...

A Soul’s Journey – Week 20
"Number 3........." So. Where were we? It was now heading towards the end of 2013. We were lucky enough to visit Spain in October and then had a magnificent trip to India, spending New Years Eve in Agra in a beautiful hotel overlooking the Taj Mahal. (Let's not mention the fact I had to retire early due to a very sore throat- what could that mean I wonder?????) Aah! The Universe. She works in mysterious ways. In January 2014, Julius was given his notice. After 20 years of hard work, travel and dedication he was shown the door. This was...

A Soul’s Journey – Week 19
"Love and Peace Or Else!.........." I'd dabbled just slightly through my life, seeing clairvoyants, reading tarots etc It's always interested me, but now I was on a mission - like a woman possessed. Something massive did happen that day, it was like a switch had been turned on inside. Maybe that's why "X" had shown up? Precisely for this reason. I was meditating ALL the time. Writing down all my guidance, vigilantly. Recording my dreams, looking for clues and trying to piece together an answer. Jules always laughs actually and when I was just about to meditate, he would say,...

A Soul’s Journey – Week 18
"The Monster......." The beauty of an open and honest relationship is that by bringing things up and talking through things, you can sort things out. As uncomfortable as it was, it has, eventually bought Jules and I closer. The thing about healing is that it is at times uncomfortable because what you are doing is bringing up the darkness inside, up into the light, to be healed and transmuted into love. It's the path to ascension. Things come up for one reason and one reason only. To be healed. Keeping things inside causes nothing but dis-ease. If left untreated it...

A Soul’s Journey – Week 17
"The Whole Truth and Nothing But The Truth......" I have always said to the children to tell me the truth. No matter what. There is nothing they could do that we couldn't work through and if they chose to lie to me, the consequences would be far greater. I stand by this. However it wasn't easy when Jules turned to me one night and asked if there was anything going on between X and I, and I simply said no, which was the truth! The next question wasn't so easy. "Do you have feelings for him?" Mmmmmmm. If I say...

A Soul’s Journey – Week 16
"Let It Go! Let It Go........" He just made me smile and let's face it, I liked resonating in his field. This can happen. It happens when you have an instant recognition with someone, like you know them already - a soul mate or someone from your soul family. And you do literally resonate at the same frequency. It wasn't like when I met Jules. Jules, I could not have been more sure of. This one I wasn't. He was in my life for a reason, but what was that? Here come the questions again!!! As I've learnt now I...

A Soul’s Journey – Week 15
"Something In Your Eyes......." All it took was a swipe of his finger against my left palm. It happened as I handed him a beer. It was so subtle, yet fully charged. Holy Hell!! I didn't know what to do, or where to look. I just didn't know what was happening. I was hit by THE biggest bolt of electricity, straight through my soul, straight through to my very essence, my spirit. He was back! I knew this guy. I knew his very distinct energy. It was exactly like the song Iris by U2 "Once we are born, we begin...

A Soul’s Journey – Week 12
"Be Careful What You Wish For......" Jemima was going through a living hell and then out of the blue Julius started experiencing difficulties at work. All of a sudden the twenty, on-the-whole, happy years he had spent at a financial institution were becoming harder and harder to handle. Why now? The timing wasn't good. Our daughter was literally fighting for her life, she was in year 11, what on earth was going on? Night after night, I now had to listen to tales of woe from the bank. After what was an exhausting day, I had to buckle up for...

A Soul’s Journey – Week 11
"The times they are a changing'....." Well not quite, but certainly I was changed. Forever. We were at the start of our healing journey with Mima and I was at the start of my personal healing journey. Unbeknownst to me I had started the long journey home. Back to my truth, back to my heart. I felt completely different. Gone, were the currents of anxiety, replaced by a new sense of calm. A wiseness and a knowing I hadn't had before, or at least had long forgotten. Accepting now of what was happening and able to approach it from a...

A Soul’s Journey – Week 10
"The Process........." To say it was an intense ten days is an understatement. I was pushed so far out of my comfort zone I was in another stratosphere! At times, when they would tell us what we were about to do, I would look to the nearest exit and think to myself if I run out now, how far would I get before someone would catch me. At times it felt that bad and definitely made me that uneasy. But like everything, it had its up side. In fact, in hindsight, it was brilliant. Hard, but brilliant. As I sat...

A Soul’s Journey – Week 9
"Number 1...." It was to be a long road and by no means an easy one but as with everything there was to be a positive side to this seemingly negative situation. Everything happens for a reason. I decided to tell everyone I knew. I learnt from my own battle this was the right thing to do. I did ask Jemima whether this was ok and explained to her why. The school was amazing, the staff, the principal, the councillors, the nurses. Everyone was aware. Her friends were amazing. Alerting me always if the situation was getting out of control...

A Soul’s Journey – Week 8
"Things always happen for a reason......." Always. Whether you perceive situations to be good or bad in the end is irrelevant. It simply is. What we 'do' and how we 'perceive'  that situation is up to us. It's a choice. Simple. And once we realise this the healing can begin. Jemima's depression sent me into a downward spiral. I felt helpless and hopeless. Was it my fault? Was I such a bad mother to cause my daughter to suffer in this way? Was it my fault????? We always question everything. It's human nature. (Or is it just a learned behaviour?)...

A Soul’s Journey – Week 7
"Smells Like Teen Spirit......" Or does it?? On that fateful day in November 2012, when for a moment time stood still and my blood ran cold, I was shocked back to living. Totally oblivious to anyone else's pain I was going through life, happy and content. Sure Mimes had got a bit skinnier, a LOT skinnier and I was concerned and had a chat to my nutritionist friend. Could she be anorexic? We would keep an eye on her. The move to Singapore had been a big one for her and not an easy one. I remember the little letter...

A Soul’s Journey – Week 6
"You've Lost that Loving Feeling....." Battling depression is never going to be an easy one. I know because I have experienced it. When I was diagnosed way back in 1999, I was in complete denial. I felt like a complete failure and I didn't want anyone to know and if I heard anyone had been discussing it I was furious! The Doctor said she thought it had been undiagnosed and that I had been experiencing it for a lot longer. I believe I did have depression the first time when I was a teenager. I locked myself in my room...

A Soul’s Journey – Week 5
"It Comes in Three's........" It comes in three's is something my mother always says and she was right. Over the course of 18 months, Three. BIG. Things. Happened. We, as a family unit were going along very happily, or so we thought. We were living the dream. We had moved to Singapore late December 2009 from Melbourne. I can tell you living in Australia and living in Singapore could not be more different experiences. My friend John has always said he has never seen anyone adapt to living in a different country so swiftly and happily. It was true, I...

"A Word On Healing" So, if you've explored my blog and read the 'About' section or 'Welcome to TempleSoul' section you may have worked out I am a healer, an Intuitive Healer. This change in profession, realisation or whatever you'd like to call it happened swiftly, very swiftly. One minute I was a Graphic Designer putting together my website for kids, Radio Bambini and keeping my app, Child of the Week on the go, and the next I was studying like I have never studied before. Quite literally! I hated school and found studying both a chore and a bore....

A Soul’s Journey – Week 1
"The Broken Record............" It was a recurring nightmare. One that had been happening on a regular basis for the past three years. We had been enjoying a beautiful Christmas party with wonderful friends down at Sentosa when the familiar started unfolding. I could tell with just one glance what was about to come. It happened when we were in a social situation, always involved alcohol and was triggered when other men were around. This time, when he said he was going home - I simply let him go. I was having a great time, dancing up a storm with friends...
