Rewriting your model of Reality!!


Our beliefs are like unquestioned commands, telling us how things are, what’s possible and impossible and what we can and cannot do. They shape every action, every thought, and every feeling that we experience. As a result, changing our belief systems is central to making any real and lasting change in our lives – Tony Robbins.

Our models of reality lie below the surface. Often we do not realize we have them until some intervention or contemplative practice makes us aware, How connected to your beliefs are you, or do they just percolate in the background waiting to surface when some event calls for them to.

Beliefs control our everyday actions and how the world is controlled, how has this shown up in quotes over time, let’s have a look:

15. Anthony “Tony” Robbins (born Anthony J. Mahavoric; February 29, 1960) is an American motivational speaker, businessman, and author.

He has also been featured in a TED conference, Business Insider, and Inc. magazine

it’s time to give up those disempowering models of reality that we inherited as far back as childhood, open the door and begin that new life that awaits you.

Namaste until next time, my dear friends.

Life is like Photography!!


Crystals, Meditation, Flower essences, Essential oils, Sacred geometry, Mudras, Mantras, Incantations, Vision boards…

They are all metaphysical technologies, and like any technology, if you don’t know how to use it , your motherboard could get fried, Danielle LaPorte writes in her latest book White Hot Truth: Danielle’s website.

Trying to activate the Kundalini because you read a book somewhere is like starting to build a nuclear reactor in your home because you read how to do it on the internet – Sadhguru.

Danielle goes on to say Once you find your God/Goddess, He/She may turn your life inside out and you’ll be called to reorganize your plans, your mind, and your body. You will finally understand the “work” in “Light worker”.

So what do you hold to be your awareness level, let’s take a journey to the stars:

aware1

1. Eckhart Tolle talks about the power of the Now to exist in the silence of pure presence, seems to be another way of illustrating awareness.

aware2

2. My mentor Arion Light through his Activation work has us be in contact with our essence in our bodies not our mind. The awareness this provides is phenomenal: What is Activation?

aware3

3. A + C = R.

aware4

4. Babies lie in their cradles watching the world in awe because they are not yet aware that things are labelled, perhaps it is the purest form of awareness: Cats in the Cradle.

aware5

5. What does awareness give us, shitloads apparently

aware6

6. How well do you accept your life, I feel I spend a lot of time being unaware what is going on, it’s just a haze so acceptance could be a long way off: Suddenly I See.

aware7

7. Lao Tzu is one of my top ten. You can read one sentence and study it for the next week.

aware8

8. Be aware that self love is your greatest growth seed. Water it and you will transform: Born this Way.

aware9

9. They say the best way to learn something is to teach it, do you have the gonads to do that.

aware10

10. Heroism is always available. Through ordinary experience the ordinary man can become extraordinary: Heroes.

aware11

11. So is mine, I love Google Images, It’s part of my blogging necessities.

aware12

12. Another essential, Trust has to be included in living a truly aware life: Trust.

aware13

13. My friend Emeli’s life was transformed when Jim Stynes, head of the Reach Foundation asked her What are you going to do with your life when she was fighting with grief in an unsustainable way She now runs this: Collective Potential

aware14

14. A West African shaman by the name of Dr. Malidoma Patrice Somé has a different view of mental illness compared to that of people in the western world, where we focus on pathology and the idea that the behavior exhibited by those diagnosed with the condition is something that needs to stop.

Dr. Somé proposes that what we call depression, bipolar, psychosis and schizophrenia may perhaps be a remarkable transformation in consciousness and an inevitable step towards human development.

Dr. Somé and the Dagara people support the shamanic view that signals mental illness as “the birth of a healer.” They believe that this person has been selected as a medium for a message to the community. What Westerners view as “mental illness”, the Dagara people view as “good news from the other world.”: Healing Song.

aware15

15. Then, finally it’s your awareness that matters in the end, do the best you can for you.

Should we avoid esoteric practices and teachers altogether and take the path of total self-reliance? We can’t. And we shouldn’t-this is part of our awakening. What we should do, at many stops along the way, is recommit to our spiritual education. We should scrutinize every class, every sermon, every theory, with the respect our soul – and our greatest teachers deserve.

Namaste until next time, my dear friends.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You so have what it Takes!!


I began the six week journey again that we take on Arion Light’s Activation Program: Activation School. In the first week we look at what it truly takes to come home to one’s self, the heart, your soul. We do a beautiful practice with a  partner receiving the beloved from them. We also discuss our intentions for the course, mine is to give strength to the love and the purpose of my life and for the planet.

So what do sages and visionaries and your ordinary joe say about coming home, lets have a look:

ch1

1. F. Scott, big time author pointing out its inner work not the colour of your drapes that has you come  home.

ch2

2. Insert your name in place of someone’s and I reckon this quote hits a home run: I’m Going Home.

ch3

3. Byron and Arion’s work attest to this. Do the work and it becomes easier to come home.

ch4

4. The story you tell yourself creates how your home looks, what do you put on your welcome mat: Home is where the Heart Is.

ch5

5. We have journeyed so far from our hearts spaces, it’s time to take up the challenge and return to that beautiful, beautiful oasis.

ch6

6. I met a person recently, she is from a different generation, but the moment I began to speak with her I knew I had found another of my anam cara, Irish for soul friend, you normally have known each other for lifetimes: Make You Feel Your Love.

ch7

7. There are people I miss in my life, so it’s wonderful when you hear they are going to drop into town for a visit, include yourself on this.

ch8

8. Doesn’t your heart feel so much lighter and open when you come home to it? They say that love has come to town: Uh-oh, Love has come to Town

ch9

9. To be thrilled all of the time, that’s what coming home to yourself truly is, the ability to  live it moment to moment.

ch10

10. Do you ever go and stand in a rain storm hoping it will wash away the pain and hurt that is real or imagined. In coming home the heart can heal them as well: Cleansing Rain Song.

ch11

11. I live alone, can’t have pets so I get these in other places in my community where I am coming home.

ch12

12. Haven’t your wildest dreams come from your heart not your head? If your home address resides above your neck it’s time to move: The Dream of Life.

ch13

13. What would you include in your favourite coming home experiences?

ch14

14. When travelling one may find many new temporary homes, but there’s a pillow waiting for you in your heart: Home is where the Heart Is.

ch15

15. Old souls, young souls – our country has a 60,000 year soul to come home to, we just have to have the courage to find it.

I did get a little bit off track on the way through, but I suppose that is one of the variances of the journey to coming home, it never follows the route you hope ot will.

Namaste until next time, my dear friends.

I will face whatever Comes!!


What does the following question raise for you – What if I didn’t have to prepare to be present? Danielle LaPorte also suggests to do these three things in her book White HOt truth:

  1. Identify where you are already meeting with spirit in your life
  2. It’s important what you call your practice
  3. There is no competition
  4. Remember , it’s about ongoing practice , not permanency

Over my years I have meditated, taken a Buddhist name, done Landmark for seven years, ran marathons in Australia and Russia, but I like this summation by Danielle:

Even with steady devotion to your growth, your practices will ebb and flow. Some days you’re going to be riding high, dancing to merge with Shiva himself, or fasting to feel the pulse of the higher realms. other days , you’re just doing what it takes to not feel like shit.

So what are your life affirming practicing and what do the wise ones say about it, Lets have a look:

laq1

1. I once wrote the statement that we all have the same 24 hours in the day as Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela and Mother Teresa. Some people thanked me and others went apeshit. Where do you hold the truth in the above quote?

laq2

2. If you have had a bad day, you always have the opportunity to rise afresh: All I Ask.

laq3

3. Beauty is not attained by outer work like plastic surgery, it is purely inner work.

laq4 

4. Who and What and Where you are is exactly where you are meant to be, how could it be different. Accept this and your life will become a whole lot easier: Who You Are.

laq5

5. This image seems to be of someone walking on water, rise up and you can do that.

laq6

6. Some people say we choose our parents before we start to live our lives, if this is true we are definitely strong enough to get through the bit after birth: Strong Enough.

laq7

7. That simple smile, thank you or words of gratitude can change a life, and you may never know.

laq8

8. With a heart to inspire single women to live their best lives and to never, ever settle, Mandy cuts to the heart of the matter with her inspirational, straight-talking, witty, and often wildly humorous take on life and love. She’s also not afraid to talk about the many realities of being single in a world that still asks “And WHY are you still single: Happiness is an Inside Job.

laq9.jpeg

9. When I was a child I loved my magical friends, the education told me they weren’t real. Now I’m discovering that probably this was not true.

laq10

10. They say that when it becomes too hard, the place to go to heal, is the music that enlivens us, I agree: I’ve got the Music in Me.

laq11

11. Worship what you love and Love the way you worship. Failure does not mean your dreams are dead.

laq12

12. Quite a life affirming belief from Kanye West. Could you think this, or even say it. Mohammed Ali, move over: Stronger.

laq13

13. let go of the non life affirming things in your life, you will feel like you have lost kilograms of weight.

laq14

14. The affirmation queen, Louise Hay began her literary career at the age of 50. So do not give up on what affirms you in your life just because it hasn’t happened yet: Flowing Life.

laq15

15. Remember in life affirming practices laughter is the best medicine.

Womens circles have existed for millennia, mens circles similar to King Arthur’s Round Table are returning. We find it impossible to be aware all the time, be your kind of devotee, your light chaser.

Namaste until next time, my dear friends.

Do you know who you Are?


I am about to begin my journey as a Sacred Love Workshop leader. I came up with the concept on the dance floor at Mojo Dance one night when I looked around and noticed that most of the people would go home alone but that they were all beautiful people and deserved so much more. About half an hour later the term Sacred Love came to me, and the concept that we had stopped being vulnerable with each other and telling each other our sacred stories.

I am still reading Daring Greatly, up to the section on vulnerability, the true caring and feeding of our spirits. Lets open up the board on vulnerability:

vul1

1. Declaring herself as a poet and a woman in progress, Raquel Franco in her book of poetry Keep me Wild delves deeply into the bravery it takes to be vulnerable.

vul2

2. I had to choose carefully so I didn’t end up with 15 Brene Brown quotes on vulnerability, but I like the simplicity of this one: You are so Beautiful.

vul3

3. Considered an important figure in postmodern literature. Steven Poole of The Guardian praised Murakami as “among the world’s greatest living novelists” for his works and achievements. I love his cure.

vul4

4. How many years do we forget this for between the openness of our childhood to having it be OK again: Vulnerable.

vul5

5. I have a new friend tell me about her twin sisters death a month after I met her. I asked her why she had told me. She said that she felt she could trust me with anything.

vul6

6. In my Sacred Love workshop you will practice declaring you weaknesses and your strengths for each chakra: When you Believe.

vul7

7. We must never forget the shadow as well as the light, we need to go to both places to free our vulnerability.

vul8

8. Open your heart the whole way, the most courageous act a human being can partake in: Open Your Heart.

vul9

9. They say masked balls are the epitome of High Society. Myself, I reckon an unmasking ball would be a much more inviting evening.

vul10

10. I don’t understand these modern gurus who make you pay thousands of dollars to yell and scream for a weekend as a way to be empowered when the above is what connects people and turns you into a leader: Thank U.

vul11

11. In the classic relationship movie Who’s afraid of Virginia Woolf, this quote is lived out on the screen . It was nominated for 23 awards.

vul12

12. From Avatar, the classic scene: I see You, do you have the courage to say it to your loved ones and friends: I See You.

vul13

13. One of the great paradoxes of life, if we withhold our trust of others we never reach the plateau of Love and Joy.

vul14

14. I wonder what the tipping point is for reversing this situation for the planet, the Dalai Lama is working on it: Unconditionally.

vul15

15. Finally use all of it.

The quest is to know yourself first and then this will allow others to reveal themselves to you.

Namaste until next time, my  dear friends.

I didn’t have to work hard for that!!


Universal Lesson: When we forget our peaceful nature, we can ask the Universe to remind us of what is real. From Gabrielle Bernstein’s The Universe has Your Back it states if you have gone through a particularly rough period of time the act of praying to your dominant life reality soon restores your belief in the planet and yourself.

So how do we determine our realities? A lot of it is gained through our childhood, our formative years and our education. Yet many of us do not exist in these realities as life deals us another route. Can we get back to them, let’s  have a look:

reality1

1. I am an English tutor, a Community manager, a dancer, a brother, an uncle, a son. What do you add after these two vitally important words?

reality2

2. What would it be like to free yourself from limitations and soar beyond your boundaries? What can you do each day to discover inner peace and serenity: Limits.

reality3

3. It is often what we are taught that creates our reality. Paulo Friere used critical pedagogy: Advocates of critical pedagogy view teaching as an inherently political act, reject the neutrality of knowledge, and insist that issues of social justice and democracy itself are not distinct from acts of teaching and learning.

reality4

4. Remember that you do not need to change your reality just because someone else disagrees with you, after all, it is only their opinion: All We Know.

reality5

5. Its interesting quotes can be printed with spelling mistakes, running is a way to change your reality, but I think the earth spins beneath your feet.

reality6

6. Probably the most famous reality quote in the world, Chinese philosopher is claimed to have written the iconic Tao Te Ching, which seeker of the truth does not have a copy of this in their book shelf:  Forest.

reality7

7. Perhaps a little graphic, this quote points to the face that sometimes we are blinded to what is our current reality.

reality8

8. I sometimes hanker for childlike innocence over wisdom, how about you: Agnus Dei.

reaality9

9. Joseph Campbell was an American mythologist, writer and lecturer, best known for his work in comparative mythology and comparative religion. His work covers many aspects of the human experience. His philosophy is often summarized by his phrase: “Follow your bliss.” Yes Please!!

reality10

10. I have found time and time again that this statement is true, my soul is where my reality lives: Heart and Soul.

reality11

11. We have a lot of realities during a calendar year, here’s a hint how many.

reality12 

12. Imagine if all our realities were dreams competing with each other, that would be an interesting world to live in: Imagination.

reality13

13. How do you create your reality, with action or words? I’m a fan of the former.

reality14

14. Deepak Chopra questions standard medical genre with the belief that “human aging is fluid and changeable; it can speed up, slow down, stop for a time, and even reverse itself,” as determined by one’s state of mind. His books are worth a read: Re-inventing the Body.

reality15

15. Finally, let your passions create your reality, why wouldn’t you.

You and I , we are ultimately responsible for which reality we hang about in, a statement worth examining day by day.

Namaste until  next time, my dear friends.

Keep the Ones that Heard You!!


I just read a beautiful story about the forthem butterfly A business consultant uses in his presentation. It looks remarkably like a Monarch butterfly but the ethos of his talk is that we are in life for them. In  business, if it was not for them we would not have one. In our lives, for our families, our community and our world for them.

He transformed one of his clients mission statements from our goal is to help our client achieve their goals to We help our clients vastly exceed what they thought they could achieve so that they play a bigger game which is then reflected in their families, in our community, in our country and in our World. Definitely for them.

So how have we, as a planet looked at the for them formulae, let’s take a journey:

forthem1

1. Doing it for them you discover your community, we used to call them tribes.

forthem2

2. In this ever increasing world of instant gratification, being for them is considered an exception by the mainstream who force need more, but more down our throats, resist with all your heart: Dear No One.

forthem3

3. This is the best age to teach people to be for them, when they believe in monsters, unicorns, dragons and stare at the stars with wonder.

forthem4

4. Allow for mistakes: I’ll be there for You.

forthem5

5. He’s still alive, many are not.

forthem6

6. Actions not words are what really matters, don’t say it if you are not going to do it: Animal Song for Children.

forthem7

7. If you do this for them, they will never, ever, ever forget you. For you have touched their heart.

forthem8

8. From the world’s greatest philosopher Mr./Ms. Unknown comes how to listen for them, it’s important: Perfect.

forthem9

9.  She Walks in Beauty

She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellow’d to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o’er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

And on that cheek, and o’er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!

forthem10

10. That beautiful time in our life when we are free of judgement and full of wonder, bliss: The protection Song.

forthem11

11. Strap them on and fly. You can do so much more for them when you are soaring.

forthem12

12. Advice to give for them, to empower them in moments of doubt: Let It Go.

forthem13

13. Not really for them, but a worthy question.

forthem14

14. This is what your family and friends want from you. So lets be it for them: I Touch Myself.

forthem16.jpg

15. I think this covers both of the species, male and female. Lets be weird and insane for them.

I predict we are transforming to a for them world, with all the chaos being the old paradigm screaming as it goes out of existence. Become a for them practitioner, It’s the way of the future.

Namaste until next time, my dear friends
