Your life, my life, everyone’s life tends to be circular. People, patterns and events often return to repeat themselves, over and over again. This can be frustrating, especially when we think we are "over" an event or that we have totally healed an experience. When this occurs, some of us may feel we have "failed" or sllipped backwards, as we groan, "not this again!" .. Yet the Shaman Elders tell us that we are not seeing the full picture. Life is circular, but it is supposed to rise into a spiral, and this is the true wisdom of the Medicine Wheel.
It is said that the wise man is guided by the stars, but the fool governed by them, and that is certainly the case these days when many astrologers seem to be always writing “doom and gloom” about the current movement of the planets and the stars. It is very sad, in many ways, because it is all based on getting “traffic” to their site/blog and nothing generates interest better than “bad news.” Of course, as a former journalist I am very aware of how to garner interest. I remember, years ago, I wrote a story about one farmer who had a chemical reaction to something.
There are so many beautiful legends from all over the world, and yet the Celtic myths still enthrall us. The story of the Holy Grail, the sacred cup of healing is a profound story that actually contains secret clues to our own healing. Ultimately we "drink" from the grail when we apply its magical wisdom to our lives.
The story tells us that it was this sacred vessel that the Holy Knights of the Round Table were in search of in the wonderful Arthurian legends. The Legend tells us that this cup was used in the Last Supper by Jesus and it was then used to collect his holy blood, before being taken to England by Joseph of Arimathea and others where it became lost. The Knights of the Round Table went in search of the cup.
Recently I was honoured to be asked to present a workshop on living as an Empath.. a subject matter I feel very passionate about! I truly believe that we are seeing a huge number of empaths incarnating right now to help us overcome the inertia of materialism and to awaken our world to a higher vibrational pathway. Sadly, so many empaths are not supported and some either close down, or choose to exit this planet via suicide. This is why I wrote my book: The Empath, which reveals this pattern and offers several alternatives.
As a child I would spend hours drawing little fairy spirits. Over time I began to hear their messages and they guided me to the spirit realms where I encountered angels and Ascended Masters. What led me to explore these realms was a strong desire to understand why some people suffer and others have good fortune. I ached to know and angels gently led me to the Akashic Records where every person and every event is recorded. I uncovered the law of karma and the law of harmony.
If you take a quick look at my site, read any of the blogs or any of my books, you will quickly discover that my underlying message for the world is self empowerment. I see so many people struggling or stressing about their lives and for the most part it is because they are looking for answers in all the wrong places. One of the worst places to look for inspiration is main-steam media, and regular television where there is an emphasis of materialism and seeking happiness outside of oneself. -- Yet so many believe this is the only way to live but there is another gentler way to be in this world.. and yet not "be of this world."
Living as an Empath/Starseed in this world is not easy. Empaths feel everything and may not understand what they are feeling and yet once they embrace the wisdom of this gift it brings enormous rewards. Yet it is also a lonely path because for many years I have been unable to discuss what I see/feel and know with others. Yet in the last few years I have begun to see a huge groundswell of people who see, feel and intuit, as I do! This is why I wrote my book, The Empath to offer some insights and advice for the budding and awakening Empath.
