Hello everyone out there! I hope you are all keeping well. I have something a little bit different, for you, today. If you love animals you’ll like this.
I guess I could call this a guest post. Sendy is a long time client of mine and an even longer time friend. I think we’ve known each other since about 2005. That’s awhile, so I trust what she has to say.
What she has written here I was first told in a phone call and it is an amazing feet of courage. Especially considering everything Sendy has been through over the last couple of years.
So I’ll shut up now and let Sendy tell you about this experience she went through.
My name is Sendy Radecki. I live in Adelaide with my two cats Casper and Rosie. My beloved fury friends.
I have always loved animals and wished I could understand what they said. Little did I know then that this was something I was going to do. With all the spiritual work I have done, this has led me to where I am now. Practicing communicating with animals. To hopefully be of service to these souls. The story I’m sharing is one of my experiences.
In the month of May 2016 I came across a cockatiel in my tree. Not being a native bird I tried to see if it was tame and if it would come to me. Nope, but it looked very healthy. You do get escapees on occasion.
So I shared it on social media. There are so many volunteer pages, especially on Facebook, to find lost pets.
The bird didn’t hang around. So I asked Arch Angel Michael to keep the little one safe and help it find its way home.
Another week passed and I recognized the birdcall. Yep, he or she was back. Totally not interested in me. I spoke to it softly letting it know my yard was a safe place but warned it of the neighborhood cats. It was ok with my kitties as they are in a run. Again I called on Arch Angel Michael as I watched the little one fly off.
No takers on social media so I shared again. Little did I know I would see the bird once again and a couple of weeks later I heard that familiar sound.
I had just started my walk on one of the local jetties. I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard it. So I started looking for the cutie. I was also concerned about it being down the beach with other birds.
I was thrilled to see it was looking not too bad. There it was resting on a mound of seaweed. Calling to whomever would call back. I don’t believe in coincidences. I approached slowly. Talking very softly. Sending lots of love. Hoping the little one would remember me and I meant no harm. I tried again to see if it would come to me but on cue, flew off.
I watched where it was going, hoping it would circle back. It landed on the far end of the jetty. I felt relieved but someone scared it and it flew off again.
This time it went over the ocean. I was right on the waters edge now. I was calling on my angels, guides, St. Francis and anyone who could hear me to help this little soul fly to safety. You see it was floundering in the water. It was a windy day. Cold. The water was choppy.
By now I was beside myself. I wasn’t a good swimmer. Also I was already exhausted. I was recovering from breast cancer. I was in my fourth month since I had finished treatment. How was I going to save this little soul when just breathing exhausts me?
I quickly approached a young couple hoping the guy would help. The girl was very responsive. I asked the guy does he feel like being a hero today. But he just looked at me blankly and said it was too cold.
I’m watching the bird while I’m having this conversation. Watching it dip then fly up. Dips again, flies up again. No help from the guy. I couldn’t believe it. What happened to men coming to the aid of a woman?
Before I knew it I started to undress just as the little bird hit the water and didn’t come up. Next I’m in the water! Walking to the direction of the bird as fast as I could. The tide was out, but the sea was still up to my chest. My track pants got stretched quite a bit by the water and I went under a couple of times. But kept pressing forward!
There was the little one using its wings to stay afloat. My heart just broke seeing this little bird trying not to drown.
Amazingly the next wave brought the little one right into my arms! I scooped it up and held it close to my chest. The next thing I knew I was back on land. I couldn’t talk. I was so out of breath. I quickly put the bird in my jumper and tried to breathe. It happened all so fast to me!
My concern was for the bird that seemed very relieved and contented to be in my jumper. The young couple was still there. I’d like to think genuinely concerned for my safety. The young girl at least.
I managed to get a box from the kiosk and I got the little one to a 24-hour emergency vet. I was praying all the way there. I even had my left hand over the little one sending love and healing to it. I kept talking. Reassuring it I’m taking it to be treated and kept checking it was still alive!
I got to the vets and took a photo to share around again. They took the little one and said I can call back for an update.
Suddenly I heard a big squawk. The veterinary nurse came back out with my jumper and said ‘Someone wasn’t happy leaving his warm bed’. I was relieved. That was a good sign.
When I got home I called straight away. They said the bird was all fluffed up and sitting on the bottom of the cage. That wasn’t good. Birds go into shock easily so I knew it would be touch and go through the night. I prayed for the little one’s recovery. After all it had endured.
Then it all hit me. Oh my God, how did I manage to do what I did? I couldn’t imagine. I think I was the one in shock! It was lights out for me.
Next morning I got given some wonderful news. The little one made it through the night and was doing well. Later that day, as no one came forward, a rescue group took the little one until owners could be found.
The last I heard it had made a full recovery and was going to be adopted out due to no owners being found. My heart sang! Later I texted a couple of friends to share my adventure with them.
I was blessed with a message from the spirit realm telling me how important this experience was for me. I had a consultation where I was given guidance from the angelic realm.
I was told: “You were very brave to rescue the bird but in so doing you are stepping more into your role as an earth angel working with animals.
This was, in reality, a test to see if you would step into who you are. To connect with your soul on a much deeper level.
The bird was an angel that came to test your compassion and unconditional love. Intuitively you stepped up and went far above and beyond what was expected of you. Especially after all the hardship you have been through with your illness.
This is the start of change and the awakening of your soul purpose. You have a great ability to work with animals and you are now entering a deeper spiritual phase of that journey.”
As I said to you before, I didn’t believe in coincidences and what I was told confirmed this. My journey with animals continues.
Thank you Sendy for sharing this experience with us. When you first told me about it on the phone I was blown away by what had happened.
I know personally that your animal journey is progressing and introducing you to some interesting characters. How are the grumpy horses by the way?
I think you’ll all agree that Sendy is one brave lady to rescue a bird like that. I know challenges from the Divine can come in all shapes and sizes but this one was a big one. Not that Sendy knew that until after the event.
And that’s the point really. We don’t always know when we are being tested or challenged. Not that I’m saying that you should all go and jump in the ocean to test your faith in what ever it is you believe in.
Sometimes everyday life is just that. Challenging. Other times we have these divine curve balls thrown at us. We just don’t know it at the time.
It’s all part off the journey we are on. Some of us get an easy ride whilst some get an insanely hard ride. Either way the hardest part is getting through the hard times and how we react to them. Life’s not always fair but that’s another whole post waiting to be written.
On this occasion my friend Sendy rose to the challenge without even realising it was one. And what an incredible feat of compassion and courage she showed.
Till next time I hope that this journey we call life is good to you all.
It’s a Wednesday night on the Gold Coast. A chilly one at that too. By that I mean it’s cold. I’m not talking about some spicy Mexican dish. Wish I was eating one though.
But I digress. I was going to postpone posting this piece of writing till a little later but I’m being harassed by a greater force than my distraction ego. A certain one of my Guides is banging on the door saying get on with it. Get it out tonight and have done with it.
So I’m hitting the publish button. So maybe you should grab a tea, coffee, or a large shot of something and sit back on a comfortable sofa. Enjoy the read and change the world. You’ll see what I mean. Read on.
We all receive Divine Guidance in one form or another. Well I believe we do, but you may not. That’s OK if you don’t. I’m not here to preach about the rights and wrongs of Divine Guidance or belief systems. I’m not here to tell you what you should or shouldn’t believe.
What I’m going to do today is tell you how I receive Divine Guidance and also let you in on one of the messages I received recently.
Divine Guidance could also be called any of the following. A message from the Goddess, notes from the Universe, Great Spirit speaks, a message from God, the word of Allah, the voice of Jehovah, guidance from the Buddha or indeed a host of other new age, religious or even non-religious deities or guides. Take your pick.
But I think the discussion about what we call that eternal energy out there I will save for another day. For now I’m just going to call it Divine Guidance. I hope you’re OK with that?
Before I tell you about myself I’m interested to know how you receive your Divine Guidance. If you feel you do that is.
Do you meditate, sit quietly in nature, practice some form of automatic writing, go on yoga retreats, paint, draw, pray, perform a ritual or even talk out loud and wait for an answer?
Well, I probably wouldn’t recommend the last one in the middle of your local supermarket. Mind you I was probably seen, a few years ago, saying “Oh my God Why? Why me? Why now?” rather loudly, looking heavenwards, whilst my two year old daughter was having a complete melt down in the frozen veg aisle. The only answer I got was more tantrums and a variety of looks from other shoppers. I’m sure many of you have been there.
Do you use tools? Crystals, prayer mats, tarot cards, incense, or a host of other devices.
Do you hear it, see it, do you just know it, feel it, or does it really matter? The main point is do you get Divine Guidance?
However it chooses to present itself to you the first place of call for it is your Heart Space. That guidance comes into the heart space and then tries to get through to you. Except for most people, myself included, the head then stuffs it up. The mind steps in and tries to alter it to suit our many egos. This is where we tread that fine line between head and heart. Our gut feeling and a rational way of thinking, or you could say the difference between intuition and over thinking it.
So you need to work out which side of that fine line those messages are treading. And that’s why you need to be aware of the process that works for you. It might be one of those avenues I mentioned earlier or it might be something completely different. Either way it’s something we need to be aware of. Because if God is in the heart then could the Devil be in the mind? But let’s save that discussion for another day.
Meditation works really well for me as does dowsing, automatic writing and occasionally amazing acts of inspiration. I also have a couple of favourite crystals and occasionally burn nag champa incense. I’ve also been known to do cleansing rituals with white sage. Sometimes though the guidance comes without any of the above and I know when to trust it. It’s taken many years, a lot of practice and getting it wrong occasionally, but I now know how to trust it. It’s just a feeling you could say.
This trust, actually, is incredibly important when I work with clients during Emerald Heart consultations. I have to trust that the Guidance I am getting is correct and my clients have to trust me that I am interpreting the Guidance correctly. The most important element of it is that I remember I am just the messenger. That I need to give the information to the client as it is given to me. It’s not my job to change the info or add my own thoughts to the process because the consult is not about me. It’s about my client and what they need at the time.
Now I mentioned earlier that I would let you in on some Divine Guidance I received recently. It was during a meditation I was doing on my own, at home. I wasn’t going into the meditation looking for anything in particular. I just felt the need to meditate and I had some spare time and the house to myself. Sometimes on these occasions I get distracted and play a game on the PlayStation. I’m not perfect you know. But not this time. This time meditation won out.
The meditation went very deep very quickly which I wasn’t expecting. Quite often I float around for a while waiting to get past the chatter in my head when I’m not focusing on anything. But on this occasion it’s like my guides were saying “No time to waist Jonny boy because you need to hear this and you need to hear it now. We’re not letting you have a quick 20 minute doze today.”
Then I’m sitting in this stone circle with someone I can’t quite see but they are very bright. Blindingly bright in fact. It’s all very relaxed and I feel quite at home and just a little bit intrigued.
They say to me “I have six words to give you which you need to write down. Remember them and pass them on. These are six words you need to focus on in order to evolve. You and the rest of humanity.
The six words are Truth, Love, Courage, Humility, Compassion and Acceptance.
Everyone should try to live through these six words but most importantly you should try to live through these words. Focus on yourself and let others take responsibility for themselves. It’s not your job to force this on others just to pass it on.
These six words also live through each other. By which I mean you need to apply Truth to Love, Courage, Humility, Compassion and Acceptance. You need to apply Love to Truth, Courage, Humility, Compassion and Acceptance. And so on and so forth. Just take a moment to let that sink in.
Now imagine if everybody on the planet could do this. Might be a friendlier more peaceful place don’t you think. Now you’re not responsible for everyone but you are responsible for yourself. But it wont be easy to apply these with everything you do but you sure can try. Thanks for listening.”
Then they were gone and you know what. It sure isn’t easy. They were right about that. After all I’m only human and humans have a great ability to succeed and fail spectacularly. But I can but try and maybe you could too. Then maybe you could pass those words on in good faith with no judgement attached. You might just change the world. And maybe just maybe the world will get a little friendlier. We can but try.
I’m hoping to explore each word individually in future posts with a bit of Divine Guidance but for now I’ll just leave you with the six words I was given. Just remember all the words live through each other. It gives them their combined energy to bring about change. Then if you can allow that energy to live through you who knows what may be achieved?
Rebirth, transition, goals and intent.
Winter Solstice is here.
Up in the northern hemisphere everyone is getting ready for Summer Solstice. If you are one of those people reading this have a great Summer Solstice. Enjoy the long days and the warm weather. And have fun with all the energy that Summer Solstice brings.
But down here in the southern hemisphere we are celebrating Winter Solstice, which is a different kind of energy. It is a time of rebirth.
It is midwinter, the shortest day and longest night of the year. And here where I live on the outskirts of the Gold Coast, in Australia, it feels that the nights have been a bit colder than usual for winter. I feel that this may be a reflection of the changes that are happening energetically around us.
The Solstice brings about change and this year it feels a little intense. It’s as if the God and Goddess have had a chat and come to a decision. And that decision is to say to us humans ‘wake up and get on with it’. Well, that’s how it feels for me. The year is turning and the days will start getting longer again. No time to hang around.
Traditionally Winter Solstice is a time for reflection. It allows us to look back at what we have achieved since the Summer Solstice. To see how life has changed and moved forwards. It’s winter, we can slow down energetically and look back and reflect. This reflection then allows us to move forwards.
In the stillness of the Solstice we can take a deep breath and set our visions for the future. As the warmth slowly comes back with the light our visions and dreams can grow. We can set our intent of what we want to achieve and change before the Summer Solstice comes knocking at our door. In the quiet of winter we can make our plans.
But this year the energy feels a little different. As I said, a little more intense. Change is happening whether we like it or not. Just look at what is going on around the world. Politically, environmentally and personally. ‘Time for change’ says the God, the Father. ‘Time to grow’ says the Goddess, the Mother. And I think we need to go with the flow on this one. To stay on the cutting edge of the energy that is hitting our planet, ourselves.
When a big shift in consciousness occurs it happens regardless of how we feel about it. And it can affect people in many different ways. Some will naturally feel it more intensely than others. Some may not even feel it at all.
For my immediate family and me we are being forced to move house. We rent and the owner would like the house back. For a perfectly reasonable reason I will add. We have until the beginning of September to find somewhere. Which we will. We always do. But it is an event we hadn’t catered for. It adds an extra dimension to life right now that I hadn’t anticipated.
Sometimes when the Divine pulls the rug out from under your feet it’s a good time to have a long hard look at what’s going on in life. I try and do that once I get over running around like a headless chicken in panic.
Interesting that this year it’s happened around Winter Solstice, the time of rebirth and transition. Just to intensify everything a little. At the moment I’m still in headless chicken mode. But as we go through the Solstice I’m going to try and enter stop, take a deep breath, and meditate mode.
I find meditation is a great way to calm down and sometimes, God willing, to get some answers. I really recommend you try it over this Winter Solstice. Or if not meditation then whatever forms of relaxation you can achieve to connect to the Divine. Stop, breath and enter the stillness of the Solstice.
Where I live the epicentre of the Solstice will be at 8.07pm on Thursday 21st June. Once I get back from my late night shopping shift with our crystal business I’m going to meditate and have a few words with the powers that be.
May I suggest you do the same and go with the flow. Honour yourself because you are worth it.
Welcome to my second blog article. I’m going to cheat a little as I’m partly re-posting a piece I wrote for the Emerald Heart Blog back in 2011. I hope you don’t mind.
I was looking back through old files and came across this piece and thought it was still very relevant in our current times. I wrote it when I was a kindergarten teacher and felt that the values I applied to children I could also apply to adults that came to me as clients.
It feels a little strange re-reading it as it prompted me to think how life has changed since then. When I wrote it I was working in the Childcare Centre on a part-time basis. I was fairly new to this Centre at the time but I went on to become full time. And in fact started to shoulder a lot of responsibility within the Centre working with a vast array of young children.
Now I don’t work there anymore but instead run a crystal business with my wife. Since leaving kindergarten my client base has grown in terms of my Emerald Heart and Geomantic work. But I still feel that I need to apply some of the same principles that I had when working with the kids.
Human beings need to be valued and cherished be they young or old. If you don’t look after and respect other people how can you expect them to look after and respect you?
Anyway the cycle of life continues. I hope you gain something from the article below, that I wrote all those years ago.
I’d like to comment on responses, and hurting people’s feelings.
I now work with preschool children in a ‘kindy’ (kindergarten) on a part-time basis, mostly 4 – 5 year olds. This came about because God, the Light and the Guides pushed me in that direction this year. But how that came about I’ll save for another day.
We were taught a lot of theory at college and now I’m putting it into practice. One of the biggest things being how you interact and talk with children. How you respond to them is massively important. One word or sentence out of place can literally destroy their day.
They are all unique and different individuals who are just starting to grow into who they are, with so much to offer the world. I have learnt to be that empty vessel with them because they need that Light to shine on them. It doesn’t matter how I feel, I have to be the best that I can be with them all the time. Some of them have very difficult home lives, but for a few hours each day it is my job, along with other staff, to help them shine and feel important in what they do and hope to achieve.
Now this makes me think that I should be able to do this with adults too. To offer that smile, like Dave said in his recent Teaching, and to be the best that I can be for those people who wish to interact with me. Sometimes life doesn’t always work out how you think it should, and sometimes people don’t always return that smile, but it doesn’t mean we should stop smiling or stop trying.
I don’t think I put it as eloquently as Dave but I hope you know where I’m coming from.
Two things stand out for me reading this again.
The first is the sentence: “It doesn’t matter how I feel, I have to be the best that I can be with them all the time.”
I know that it can be hard to do that in life sometimes. But occasionally when some one needs our help we have to put our own difficulties aside and focus 100% on the person in front of us. Be you a parent, a teacher, a spiritual healer, or anything else come to that you have to give your best. If we can all do that I believe that slowly the world will become a better place.
The second is the sentence: “Sometimes life doesn’t always work out how you think it should, and sometimes people don’t always return that smile, but it doesn’t mean we should stop smiling or stop trying.”
A smile can make a huge difference to a person’s day. The energy and the Light that is given out when you smile are amazing. And the beauty of it is that anyone can smile. Really anyone can. You can bring fantastic healing to a stranger just by smiling at them. I remember how a child’s face would light up just by giving them a smile. That simple.
Here’s a challenge. Smile at the next three people you meet regardless of who they are or how old they are. Go on, I dare you.
Hi and welcome to my blog.
Welcome to the first post of the first blog I have written.
Some of you may know me but a lot of you probably wont. So I will start by telling you who I am, what I do and why I am writing this.
My name is Jon; I’m an Emerald Heart practitioner, geomancer, meditation teacher and card reader with over ten years experience. I’m also a partner in my wife’s crystal and suncatcher business.
I decided to write a blog to give you my view on spirituality, energy work, mysticism, the metaphysical and all areas related to the Divine. This is what the blog will focus on so if you’ve come for how to make a decent cup of tea this is not the place for you. Well, unless you want to hear about my encounter with a poltergeist over a cup of tea, which I will write about in a later post. Stay tuned as they say.
That’s it in a nutshell. Well it would be if I was writing it in a hazelnut size nutshell, but I’m going for a coco de mer size nutshell so there’s more. Oh and you can look up coco de mer as apparently it’s the worlds largest nut. Just make sure you do that after reading my blog first. Thank you.
I was born in 1966. I’m a Libran and a Fire Horse. I became interested in the mysteries of the Earth and the Universe at a young age, whilst living in Birmingham, England.
I loved books like ‘Lord of the Rings’, fell in love with the movie ‘Star Wars’, wanted to be Doctor Who & Johnny Rotten, had a crush on Suzi Quatro, played Dungeons & Dragons and had a great fascination with stone circles. I was brought up in a run of the mill Christian household, which involved church on Sunday but nothing too heavy. I also became involved with the other English religion called football and, for my crimes, became a Leeds United supporter at a very young age.
I started life as a nomad. Mainly due to my father being a career man and moving constantly for his promotions.
It was during the early nomadic years of my life that I was taken to see a stone circle and the energy and impact of it lodged itself somewhere within me. It is something that has stayed with me ever since and whenever I’m home in England I always take the opportunity to visit at least one stone circle. They fascinate me and so do the earth energies that run under them. I shall write about them later, including when the sky turned blood red above Stone Henge.
As a child I was quite open to my spiritual side, believed in God, the pagan Celtic mythology of the land I lived in, and had some powerful intuitive dreams. Some of the dreams were fantastic like flying with dragons and some were very scary including having a repetitive dream about witches in my ceiling. I’d like to tell you about them one day and their spiritual connotations.
At the age of twelve dad got another promotion and we moved to Worthing on the south coast of England. Moving to Worthing allowed me to explore Cissbury Ring and Chanctonbury Ring on a regular basis. Two prehistoric hill forts that are well worth investigating and dowsing for earth energies. There were also trips to Devils Dyke and the Longman of Wilmington. If you have an interest in the ancient landscape of southern England these are all places you should visit.
At the age of fourteen my parents got divorced. Mum, my sister and myself moved back to Birmingham.
In my older teen years I started to shut down to my spirituality. Instead I gravitated towards the football terraces. It gave me an outlet for the anger and anguish that comes from parents separating. Half my football life was given to following my beloved Leeds United when they played any of the local teams in and around Birmingham. The other half was going with my Aston Villa supporting mates to watch their team. Either which way there was a flirtation with the football hooliganism of the early 1980’s. Which is nothing to be proud of but it’s important to be honest.
When you are a practitioner of any sort your clients need to trust you and to have trust you need to have honesty, including the mistakes and misdemeanours of youth. It is part of your human journey and your souls journey. It’s what makes you who you are.
I left school and moved back to Worthing where I acquired a little brother from my dad’s second marriage. I then moved on to Eastbourne where I went to college and formed some amazing lifelong friendships. During this time I had two frightening supernatural experiences. But I’ll tell you about them another time.
I emerged in my early 20’s as a punk rocker and anarchist trying determinedly to change the world for the better through whatever it took. I was forever looking outwards and never inwards in my desire for human and animal welfare. I denied the existence of God and most spirituality, although I did always feel a connection to the Celtic roots of England. That aspect of my spirituality never changed.
In the early 1990’s I moved to Australia with all my anarchist punk views. I got married to my first wife, but was separated by the mid 1990’s. I still wanted to change the world and I was still looking outwards and never inwards.
This changed in the late 90’s when my courageous father went through and died of cancer. He was 61. This was one of the saddest moments in my life and was a massive shock to the system. I left Australia and returned to England to help nurse him through the last few months of his life. A heart breaking time for all those involved.
This caused the start of a break down within me and led to overindulgence in drugs and alcohol. Ironically it was the start of my spiritual re-awakening, although I was not aware of this yet.
I ran away from the emotion and moved to Brisbane, Australia. I met and fell in love with Danielle who I eventually married. Over the next few years we lived and worked in Australia and England, did a lot of traveling and led a fairly hedonistic lifestyle. There is something to be said for life experience if you can learn from it and grow.
With the help of Danielle I broke my drug addiction. I was beginning to realise that to change the world on the outside you need to look inwards and change yourself on the inside.
To grow spiritually as a human being you have to face up to yourself. You have to be honest about all your faults and all your issues. You have to conquer your demons. Then your soul can grow and you can start to change. It’s not easy though. Confronting yourself is bloody hard work but you take the first step and then the next step and…
One of those steps for me came in 2004 when Danielle introduced me to my first teacher, Beverly, Earth Stone Mother Woman. It was the beginning of a shamanic journey. This amazing lady took me into deep meditative states. Through the soul journeying I went on I received much needed healing whilst the Universe opened me up to the beginnings of my Spiritual Journey.
It was my first knowing encounter with some of my Guides. I’m sure some had been there my whole life but this was the first time I had an understanding of them. They took me on some incredible journeys in to the Devic Realms and gave me much needed knowledge.
In 2005 we relocated to Adelaide. Danielle joined a meditation group, which was based around guided angelic meditations. At first I held back as at the time I still equated angels with Christianity. I was still rebelling against religion and I can be stubborn. Still I missed meditation and decided to give it a go. Danielle had also told me that the group had nothing to do with religion. I’m glad I went because it turned out to be another huge step in my spiritual journey.
Roxeen, the angel lady, ran the group. I became connected to my Angelic Guides and started to gain a deeper understanding of the Angelic Realm. My consciousness expanded and I learnt a lot. I was taught how to run meditation groups and became a meditation teacher. I practiced being an angel card reader as I discovered that I had the ability to read cards.
Running meditation groups was a huge learning curve with how spiritual energy works, both good and bad, light and dark. It was a good lesson in realising that we don’t know as much as we think we do and that we need to show humility and respect for the energetic process. What happened in Adelaide, while running meditation groups, is a whole story unto itself so I will save that for another time.
Roxeen recommended that I read a book called ‘Dancing with the Devil as you Channel in the Light’ by David Ashworth. So I did. It opened my eyes up and gave me a new perspective about energy work.
Towards the end of our time in Adelaide Danielle gave birth to our beautiful daughter. It was the most magical moment in my life to see that precious life form arrive in to the world. On the flip side Danielle may disagree about the moment, as it was a very difficult birth. Us men need to be honest and accept that we will never ever know what that feels like.
We returned to live in England in 2007. First in Spalding, with my mum, before getting our own place in Brighton. After my experiences in Adelaide I decided to give teaching meditation a miss. I was a little damaged in that area. However I did get a job, in Brighton, as the resident angel card reader in a shop. I found this very fulfilling and certainly had some interesting clients.
Then the Emerald Heart Light came along. Life changed again. At this point you may start to see a pattern emerge. Danielle contacted David Ashworth for an appointment. Danielle went first and I followed. That’s the pattern. I owe Danielle a lot for this with her leaps of faith. Like I said I can be stubborn and I like to put barriers up. It’s not just with the spiritual stuff either. I can huff and puff about a lot of things. I’m getting better at it though, having these leaps of faith.
I followed and had an appointment with Dave too. Well several actually. I stepped in to the Emerald Heart Light, which forced me to look closely at myself. A little way down the track I got an email inviting me to study to become an Emerald Heart practitioner. I knew I couldn’t turn the opportunity down. Thanks to my mum, who leant me the money, I jumped in feet first.
In 2009 I met my third teacher, spiritual visionary David Ashworth, at the Emerald Heart School of Enlightenment. I studied and qualified to become an Emerald Heart Practitioner. Stepping into this amazing Light has challenged me but in so doing has pushed my Spiritual Evolution to new levels. I have learnt more about the complexities of energy work and have also grown in my role as healer and teacher.
My own challenges and lessons certainly help me to work with my clients as they grow on their spiritual journeys. This growth never stops and I am constantly evolving on my journey. Experiencing moments of enlightenment and trying to learn from my mistakes.
This growth led me to my next teacher Sig Lonegren. This brought back in the shamanic side to my life. Sig is one of the world’s top dowsers and practitioners of geomancy. He builds amazing labyrinths too. Through his teaching I learnt how to dowse the earth energies and heal sick houses. I simply and safely learnt how to clear houses, and people, of all the nasty energetic stuff that can fly around. He also taught me how to draw labyrinths big and small. We often have fun as a family drawing them in the sand at the beach.
At the end of 2010 we decided to move back to Australia. Where we still live to this day on the Gold Coast. Not long after we got back my mum was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. This was the other saddest moment in my life. I never got to see my amazing beautiful mum again. For one reason or another I couldn’t get back to England before she passed away at the start of 2011. I will be forever grateful to my sister who nursed her through the last few months of her life. Many phone calls were made though and I was on the phone with her as she passed away. Mum was 83 and I still miss her.
There is a positive I can take from this though. I had an incredible experience just before I received the phone call from my sister letting me know mum was slipping away. I was in a deep meditation and I walked down the tunnel of light with my mum. I was only able to go so far but I watched the start of her crossing over. I wont go in to all the details here now but I am blessed to have had such an experience to see and feel this.
So here I am on the Gold Coast with Danielle and our daughter. My main focus energetically is the work that I do. I am an Emerald Heart practitioner with clients all around Australia. I also do house clearings for people as and when they need it.
I am learning that you have to be open to all possibilities. That sometimes you have to end things, no matter how passionate you are about them, and other times you have to start things, no matter how apprehensive you are. To stay on the cutting edge of spirituality and energy work you have to constantly be open to the ever-changing Universal energies. As Universal energy evolves you need to as well.
Which is probably why I have decided to start writing a blog. My guidance has been banging on the door for a long time to get me to do this and I’m finally taking the plunge. I hope you’ll come along for the ride.
Thank you for reading my first post. Now you know a little bit about me.
Back in the mists of time someone said, “We are not human beings on a spiritual journey. We are spiritual beings on a human journey.”
I do like that quote as I feel the journey is never ending. I am constantly evolving, as the Spiritual Path continues for a whole lifetime. Through the challenges I face and the lessons I learn I have gained much experience and understanding as to how spiritual energy works and how I can help others with their healing and journeys.
Clients come to me for various reasons on this path. Healing for their energy systems, guidance, spiritual evolution, a teacher, entity removal, balancing the energy in their homes to name but a few. Some clients are new to this spiritual journey, some are old hands at it and some are teachers in their own right but all get the help they need.
Oh and for the record, in case you were wandering? I still love stone circles and Star Wars. I don’t have a crush on Suzi Quatro anymore. I don’t want to be Johnny Rotten either. But I would still love to be Doctor Who. And I still support Leeds United. God bless ‘em.
Travel safe and be blessed,
