Once Upon a Time

Once upon a time – we all love a good story with a happy ending!

You are an infinite Spiritual being having a temporary human experience – not a human being having a Spiritual experience.

Your soul has incarnated here on earth to have experiences. We have those experiences through our own personal stories, which are filled with many different types of mental and emotional feelings. You will have sat down many times with a friend sharing your happy times, and also the sad times, sharing experiences, laughing together about the good and offering and receiving guidance and support in difficult times.

Our lives are made up of individual stories and the soul is interested in them all; the good, the bad and the in-between and is learning from each one of them. We are created with a physical body, a mind to help make decisions and have the opportunity to feel emotions making life a really full-on experience!

All of these can be broken down to pure energy – and your energy resonates on vibrations. When you are feeling happy and content the energy is clearer and holds a stronger vitality. When you are sad or unhappy this vibration drops, slows down and can cause blockages within your energy field.

Your energy field is known as your aura and within your aura you have energy centres known as chakras. Your body is the vehicle for your energy field which resides throughout and around your body. An average healthy aura needs to be at least 3ft all around you. Imagine for the moment you are standing inside an oval shaped container and you can stretch your arms out either side without touching the sides, and you have the same amount of space above your head and below your feet, this is at least how large your aura needs to be!

Your thoughts and emotions manifest through your body which is your vehicle for experiencing life.

When you hold onto negative thoughts and beliefs, ignore and hold onto feelings like anger, anxiety or grief then your body stores these within your mind, cells, muscles and organs etc. Your energy becomes weak and your chakras are not able to flow vibrantly and blockages occur, which, in turn, can lead to depression, continued stress and illnesses.

Your body becomes overloaded with your negative stories that you have held onto and have nowhere to go and the only way it can communicate to you is by how you are feeling – maybe you have digestive problems, frequently getting a sore throat, always tired,  continuously getting headaches or have a more serious problem or chronic illness?

This is the story your body is telling you, it is letting you know where you have suppressed mental and emotional negative energy and how and where it is impacting you.

When you clear any blocked emotional and mental energy and you look after your physical body with good nutrition – your body will heal and thrive!

Give yourself the gift of healing and allow me to help you evolve beyond your limited patterns and behaviour, helping to clear those negative stuck emotions that hold you back, learn and understand how your body’s energy field works helping you create a more fulfilling, happier and healthier life!

When you choose to acknowledge that you are not the hurt and suffering that your stories tell, that those stories limit you and hold you back, that it was an experience that happened yet is not who you are. Then it makes moving forward easier without limitations, issues, attachments and unwanted stories!

You are not your story. You are not your thoughts or emotions. You are not your past.

You can make the decision to be the change you wish to see in your life.

Life is filled with modern story tellers including movie producers, artists, parents and teachers. As a society, we respect and admire great story tellers. It’s the reason films and television shows have become so immensely popular with the stories they tell from learning about our history, nature programmes, showing us other parts of the world, fictional sci-fi and, of course, a good romcom. It is from stories that we have the opportunity to learn and discover.

I like this little story below that helps a child understand the meaning of passing over in a simple way.

Once upon a time, in a little pond, in the muddy water under the lily pads, there lived a little water beetle in a community of water beetles. They lived a simple and comfortable life in the pond with few disturbances and interruptions.

Once in a while, sadness would come to the community when one of their fellow beetles would climb the stem of a lily pad and would never be seen again. They knew when this happened; their friend was dead, gone forever.

Then, one day, the little water beetle felt an irresistible urge to climb up that stem. However, he was determined that he would not leave forever. He would come back and tell his friends what he had found at the top.

When he reached the top and climbed out of the water onto the surface of the lily pad, he was so tired, and the sun felt so warm, that he decided he must take a nap. As he slept, his body changed and when he woke up, he had turned into a beautiful blue-tailed dragonfly with broad wings and a slender body designed for flying.

So, fly he did! As he soared exploring and seeing the beauty of a whole new world which was a far more beautiful and superior way of life to what he had ever known existed.

He remembered his beetle friends and how they were thinking by now he was dead. He wanted to go back to tell them, and explain to them that he was now more alive than he had ever been before.

His life had been fulfilled rather than ended. But, his new body would not go down into the water. He could not get back to tell his friends the good news. Then he understood that their time would come, when they, too, would know what he now knew.

So, he raised his wings and flew off into his joyous new life!
