Back and forth

I have not written very much this year. Other than my workshop schedules, the grand total of the number of articles that I have put up on this blog, including this one, is … two.

For a soul like me, who has incarnated time and time again to serve as teacher and scribe; and for someone who, in this current lifetime, has spent the most part of her professional career writing and editing, this is pitiful, paltry output.

I could say that so much happened this year that I got so caught up in the whirlwind of change and activity that I just could not find the time or energy to sit down and pen my thoughts. Or I could say that nothing very much happened at all, too little to merit me sharing any insights.

Perhaps it was because I procrastinated too long before writing; so the window of inspiration opened and closed without me properly looking through it. It could have been that, when I finally made the effort to sit down and write, I allowed myself to be distracted – by the television, by my cellphone pinging as it alerted me to text messages that I found impossible to resist reading or replying to immediately, even if they were not important. Or – horror of horrors – could it have been because when I began to write, I got hit with Writer’s Block, and so, in frustration, I began playing a silly computer game which held me in such thrall that, when I finally came up for air, hours had passed, and the Block had grown to such massive proportions that I simply had to give up?

Take your pick. I will admit to not one of the above, but to all.

So what do I do now? Should I bow my head in shame and remorse, and beg for forgiveness and understanding? Should I act tough and pretend that it does not matter? Or could I find a way to lay the blame at someone else’s door? Perhaps I could blame the world for always giving me the short end of the stick, for the way so many things did not turn out the way I would have liked them to, for how horrible people are and how awful life is in general.

According to many, this year has not been a good year for the world. We’ve had our share of disasters, acts of terrorism, economic upheavals and deaths. Change got a new name and face – Brexit and Trump. If I subscribed to everything I see on Facebook, I would be counting the minutes to the start of 2017, for the horrors of 2016 just have to end.

Even as I write this, my cellphone is pinging every so often, as friends and well-wishers send me early greetings and shared hopes for the new year. I appreciate them all.

But I also appreciate that if I did not have this fast-ending year behind me, then I would be missing a huge chunk of growth and expansion of my heart, mind and soul. I would be missing a piece of me.

Every year brings with it offerings galore – joy, sorrow, life, death, happiness, pain, healing, suffering, triumphs, defeats, beginnings, endings… The list is comprehensive, but more importantly, the opportunities are endless. It is not what is dished out to you that matters. It is how you choose to perceive it, and what you then make of it, that does.

This year, without the pain of losing several pets and people that I loved, I would not cherish the companionship of those that are still with me as much. Without the frustration of having people – in my life as well as in the world – behave badly, I would not have caught sight of the reflections of myself from the mirrors that they were unconsciously holding up for me. Without failing some of my own tests, I would not have passed the ones that came after, or helped others with theirs because I had learnt from my mistakes.

If I do not look back, I would not see clearly enough to move forward. Because understanding my past, and learning from it, brings about insights that can lead to wisdom in the present. And it is this wisdom that guides me as I continue forward into the future.

If I run towards the future just because I can’t wait to get away from my past, then I have not recognised the opportunities for transformation and growth that had been proffered, and there is no guarantee that what the future holds will not turn out to be just another rerun. If I lose faith in others because I think they have not learnt, or are unlikely to learn, their lessons, then I do not truly honour them as sparks of the Divine, Eternal Flame… as I am. If I say I have released my anger at someone with whom I have past- or present-life issues, but still quicken to rage or judgement at the slightest provocation, then I have not truly released it, but am, in truth, choosing to hold on to that baggage so as to indulge in self-pity, self-justification and self-righteousness.

So. However you choose to see out the year and welcome the new, this is my prayer: May you see the rainbow that spans across all that comes with 2017. And may you choose not just to go with the flow, but to roll with the punches and come up again with a smile.

A happy, blessed New Year to you all.

Oh, yes. And you’ll be hearing more from me 🙂


What’s up in January 2017

Numerologically, 2017 adds up to the number 1, which is about beginnings. This will be a year of tremendous change for our planet, which also means that we are in for some massive transformation of our own. The Ancients or the Old Ones, guardians of our planet, facilitate this powerful meditation to help strengthen Mother Earth and the grids of light around her, in preparation for the waves for change that are sweeping in.

This is a special session called by the angels of sound and healing, for those who do, or who intend to, practise sound healing as part of their light work. Please bring your instruments and be prepared to do some sound healing on your fellow attendees. At the same time, Archangel Chamuel and his band of angels will make the necessary adjustments and recalibrations to customise each individual’s sound healing to a vibration that is appropriate for the work you will be called to do this year and after.
There is no need to bring a crystal for dedication, but it would be helpful to wear a grounding crystal.

When: 2 to 4 or 5pm, depending on the number of attendees

Who is this mighty angel, and how can he help us in our lives? With light constantly being directed at Earth and at us, what used to comfortably hide under cover of darkness is increasingly being shown up, and more and more people have experienced, or are experiencing, encounters with negative energies. This intensive session connects and attunes you to Archangel Michael, the warrior angel of light and protection. Here, he initiates you as a Warrior of Light, and teaches you to work with him in your own healing and protection, through simple yet effective space clearings. He also shows how you can work with him to help lost souls and entities into the light. For those already doing light warfare, be prepared for things to be taken up another notch. 
Please bring a blue, white and/or gold crystal to be dedicated to Michael.

As protector of sacred space, Ganesha reminds us that our physical bodies are the temple of God – what could be more sacred than that? This meditation is to help us release physical bad habits that hinder our bodies from receiving and anchoring more light; and Ganesha says he will avail himself to personal requests for help in removing stubborn obstacles that are hindering you from moving forward on the path of light.

The Archangel Metatron is said to be the most powerful archangel – he stands on the right hand of God and holds the Book of Life, which contains all our akashic records. As the Celestial or Heavenly Scribe, Metatron knows everything about us – past, present and future – and is the only one who can amend our akashic records and help us release karma and heal on a soul level.
If you are led to attend this workshop, you’re ready to be attuned to Metatron and work closely with him to break karmic patterns and release past, soul-deep vows and contracts that do not serve your higher self and purpose. If you have been attuned to Metatron but are being led to attend this again, it could be to help deepen your work further in helping or healing others on a karmic level. He also connects with those who feel a pull to work with, or are already working with, children.

According to Thoth, it is important to know and understand that the universe and our angels and guides operate according to universal laws. Knowing what these laws are can help us to overcome obstacles and live our lives to the fullest. They are not platitudes to be put up on the wall and looked at once in a while. They require our willingness to look deep within and work on ourselves before we can change the world.
There are 3 levels to this workshop, and it is knowledge-intensive. Please bring a notebook and pen or a recording device.

For the last couple of years, I have been called to dedicate a whole day to doing karmic release and healing only about twice a year. Metatron calls specific people to these one-on-one sessions to facilitate their healing and growth. During these sessions, Metatron, together with the Lords of Karma, helps you to see into the cause of a recurring issue or problem that you are facing, so that you can understand and work towards getting past it. Appropriate karmic dispensation is granted. Sometimes, the Egyptian god Thoth, who also has access to the akashic records, and the goddess Ma’at, will help with the balancing of karmic justice.
Karmic contracts can also be renegotiated, but only if appropriate. And if it is called for, the Archangel Azrael and the Egyptian goddess Isis will also retrieve and return the soul fragments that you lost across lifetimes, lands, and levels of time and space, so that you can be healed at soul level.
