The title 'Spiritual Teacher' implies that life is all sewn up and sorted, that they always feel happy, going with the flow and trusting the universe. To some people, it sounds like a superior status as if the world doesn't taint them or they are above everyone. To others it sounds ungrounded, as if reality doesn't touch them and their words are castles in the air, not relevant to normal life. The word 'Spiritual' even has this kind of aloft, aloof ring to it.
But, the truth is....
Being human doesn't make special allowances for anyone. Allowing it makes a master of everyone.
If you try to live above humanity, be better than it and not get involved, life will throw you face down in it. If you try to hide, avoiding being the human who you are, you'll be forced out of hiding and exposed. Like the children's story "We're going on a bear hunt" sagely states, "We can't go over it, we can't go under it... Oh NO! We've got to go through it!"
There's no way out of life and being human, but through.
In life, there is always a cutting edge, a sharp learning curve, a new layer of consciousness starkly revealed. There's always winter following summer, where inner weather strips bare, blows down, tears up and rots what was recently fun and fruitful. There's always destruction before development, fear-inducing rites of passage before entering new paradigms, and sacrifices to be made of righteous belief systems and spiritual egos if the heart is to reign, for EVERYONE.
The Secret Sauce to Being Human...
In all our years, cycles and soul seasons in this human form, one thing remains true, no matter what happens or what you do. One thing is your saviour, your lifeline, your beloved, your friend, your true Guru.
Is it okay with you if I share?
Love never abandoned you, never left your side, never left you when my lover did. Love never judged you when you were in fear, never scolded you when you were wrong, or shamed you when you were weak. Love ceaselessly caresses you from within, and holds you close even when you don't let it in.
Love is what we fight with all of the time, terrified as we are of it's exposing light, but it's what we most seek, most need, and all that we really want. Love is the fire that burns at our core, it's the light that illuminates the stars, it's the 'self' we search for, it's the god we pray for. Love is the creation itself, the be all and end all. Without it we are nothing.
With it we are kings and queens, emperors and empresses. It's the secret sauce to everything. In love, paupers prosper and beggars are reborn. In love, we return to the child we once were. In love, innocence is rekindled, genius is re-ignited, creation has passion to it, play has purpose to it, relationships have meaning, and labour becomes service.
The age-old question still begs - "But HOW?"
Practically, in every day reality...How can you get this luminous but illustrious thing that seems to disappear in the night? That when you grab for it, it slips through your fingers? How can you keep love and remember it, and have it save your life like it has mine, over and over, time and time again?
I've been bullied and abused, I've been raped and used, I've been beaten and bruised, I've been burned and confused. I've been lost in illusion, caught by false promises and drowned in delusion. I've been alone and abandoned, I've been helpless and stranded. I've been the victim and the aggressor, been eye to eye with madness and head to head with depression. I've been penniless and homeless, I've been brought to my knees and I've been thoughtless, and through it all there was a presence, a blessing, a gift.
Love taught me to love ALL of myself.
I became a teacher of what I most needed to learn, and continue to. It's humbling.
When I had nothing, I realised I had everything. When I thought I was nothing, love showed me who I really am. It was always inside me, and so I used it; like a tool to mend, like a cloth to clean, like a friend to lean on and like an angel to heal me. I let Love love me, and I followed suit. I learned from it's ways and I tracked it's routes. Love showed me the impossible was always right there. Love showed me truth in the darkness, and guided me there.
Loving ourselves is perhaps the greatest challenge on earth because it goes against our survival instinct to avoid what we don't understand and run from what we most fear: Ourselves.
We are our own greatest enemy, and our own shadow haunts our soul eternally, until one day we discover that there's nowhere left to go, but IN.
So, next time life has you in a tail-spin again and you're taking the thousandth nose dive, perhaps it's time to make a life changing, destiny altering, world transforming decision? Turn and face your inner demons and love them into wholeness instead.
Come home to you. You are worth loving, unconditionally.
I hope this helps.
All my love,

Birth is the moment of fusion between the Soul and the body; where you enter this 'Being Earth' reality.
Your soul has both an individual consciousness with memory of everything relating to it’s self, as well as being a drop in the ocean of the universal library. The body exists as condensed energy in matter, a vehicle for the infinite spirit energy of the soul. When the soul and body are in harmony with the other, in perfect balance without resistance, we are capable of great union and evolution. However, almost everyone is unbalanced in soul/body alignment and therefore out of harmony with themselves and life’s innate treasures. The process of birth can be immensely challenging and often highly traumatic, so in most cases the full soul energy only partially comes into your body until you feel safe enough being alive, then rest of you can come in.
Your soul is a vast body of information, personal to you as well as collective and universal. It can be weighed down with or attached to traumatic ‘past’ memories, of birth, death, loss, grief, fear and loneliness etc. Also, war, religious and cultural memory inheritance that does not sit well with you feeling aligned to your true essence.
Divine arrangements are made prior to birth where our parents are selected to enact for us whatever drama is most necessary for the evolution of all souls concerned, including your experience of being born, and for the diversity of expression of Source energy. At birth we take on the blue-print of this life which contains encoded, pre-determined life experiences and meetings with other key individuals to play out for our learning and journey of self/oneness-realisation.
At any moment we have the ability to become conscious of this in order to reset our pre-birth choices and exercise a more awakened state of free will. This allows us to heal and clear all ‘past’ stuff and begin a new journey as a more highly conscious and clear human being.
Clearing of our birth channel allows us to fully and completely connect with and come into our body for the first time, as virtually everyone is born with so much baggage that we are unable to claim our true power. Birthing means Being ‘I’ on Earth, which means the fullest expression of divine energy incarnated into earthly matter. It is our birth right to be here in this body, whole and complete and awakened to who we are. This can happen when we clear the debris of our past connections and learn to be present, a master of the moment now.
There are 2 main energies conflicting throughout the year, giving you the option of War or Peace. It could get you fired up and pulled apart, or make you flouish. Many will flouish while others burn out.
The first energy is that of protection, and it's two fold. Imagine that the Earth's gravitational pull was drawing our consciousness closer to her bosom. She wants her children near to her at this time, to get close to the earth and her natural rhythm. She calls us to get close to our own physical structure and nature. We are gravitationally drawn to meet it, connect with it, seek it and see the complexity of our matter. We are subtley inspired to search the cellular reality for a glimpse of the presiding consciousness that resides within every atom of our body. Feel the pulse of life beating though you. You are the drum of the Mother Earth's heart, amplifying her vibration into the top soil world. Stay close, keeps your eyes closed, and notice what sights are being revealed to you on an inner plane of existence. This is Reality. The inside is the new outside. This is where the true story is being told.
She casts a shield over us the way a mother's arms would raise up to protect her young, as if in defence of some imminent martian assault. We have Mother Natures protection.
The earth and Sun are in clear collaboration unifying their powers and arising to protect their offspring of humanity. The two opposite yet complimentary energies of masculine and feminine now visibly display their relationship of unconditional love, a divine marriage for all to see and for us to aspire to; signifying an end to the war between masculine and feminine, man and woman. Any seemingly adverse forces of the night that were against such unions for the sake of delaying the dawn have no more power. The Sun has won over darkness with the earth is in his safe hands, and we, the children, are being shepherded to safety in the comfort of our mothers skirts whilst the father energy holds the fort, energetically speaking. In other words: The Divine has this. Unity consciousness begins and conflicts will flare up and burn out.
There is a barrage of stellar and non-human forces upon us this year. That may sound crazy, and I don't usually speak of such things, but it's true. Keep calm and turn a blind eye. Don't look the monster in the eye. Deny its power to affect you. Refute any claim external that energies may have over you, human or non-human, it's all the same. Mars turns his full attention to our mother planet with the look of a hot blooded bull-fighter determined to own and conquer her. The Sun dances in front of Mars to block his direct gaze upon us, but it seems the two Alpha males of the heavens will do this capoeira style combat for much of the year, one male seeking to protect and serve, whilst the other attacks to gain rights and dominence over humanity.
In grounded terms, think of the elite, big-brother, bullying powers (of arguably 'not-fully-human' origin), in a heated battle with Justice, and all that is essentially right and good to get an idea of the scene. It's a staged performance. It looks dangerous and dramatic, and yet the Sun will aways win out, simply because it's bigger and more powerful against the upstart, rebellious son that Mars is and personifies.
I'm shown the story of the 'North Wind and The Sun' as a metaphor to describe this competition between the masculine forces, and which of the two conflicting energies shall ultimately prevail over earth. Do you remember it?
Are you sitting comfortably?...
The North Wind and The Sun
The North Wind boasted of great strength. The Sun argued that there was great power in gentleness.
"We shall have a contest," said the Sun.
Far below, a man traveled a winding road. He was wearing a warm winter coat.
"As a test of strength," said the Sun, "Let us see which of us can take the coat off of that man."
"It will be quite simple for me to force him to remove his coat," bragged the Wind.
The Wind blew so hard, the birds clung to the trees. The world was filled with dust and leaves. But the harder the wind blew down the road, the tighter the shivering man clung to his coat.
Then, the Sun came out from behind a cloud. Sun warmed the air and the frosty ground. The man on the road unbuttoned his coat.
The sun grew slowly brighter and brighter.
Soon the man felt so hot, he took off his coat and sat down in a shady spot.
"How did you do that?" said the Wind.
"It was easy," said the Sun, "I lit the day. Through gentleness I got my way."
This story illustrates the dynamic I see for 2017, one in which a forceful presence and a gentle, loving presence go head to head to see who has the greater power over humanity and the earth herself.
It's going to be exciting! But, we also know who wins...
From this we can take comfort and stay true to our gentle nature, tending to daily life, caring for the garden, the little ones and the details that require a kind and patient hand, knowing that we are indeed protected.
On the other hand, the seeming urgency of the situation will alert us to our stations. Big fires will appear several times throughout the year, both physically and politically that will need putting out.
What's Your Gift?
The sap of service will rise in you with more assertion than ever before. What will be your contribution, what is your gift, what can you offer? These will be important questions that, if not yet answered as a result of collapses in your life over recent years, will surge with a vengeance in your blood now, especially over spring and by the height of summer. You may feel as if the world will burn if you don't get to action and DO SOMETHING!
The world won't burn, we are protected, but still the need to participate in a soulful, meaningful way will become almost an obsession. It's the Earth's way of saying, I've got you under my guard so practise your arts, your new crafts, your new dance, your new song, Now! Meanwhile the Sun battles a pre-won game of 'Who's the Daddy' with testy Mars, teaching him a lesson in how to grow up and a true man.
Use the energy of Mars and the apparent threat of world domination by forces beyond our control to get excited, to get moving, to get creative, whist also not adhering to the fear. Let your firey passions be expressed in the sprouting of new stalks and stems and buds of crazed creativity, guided by the ultimate ruling power of the 'gently does it', 'just keep shining', unconditional self-evolving love of your inner wisdom.
Mars is fiery, and so is the sun. Both are aggressive. Both big and male. Both valid in their place in our sky. Yet the sun's fire burns with tender life giving warmth, whilst Mars is hot headed and out for his own gains, and so it is with the masculine nergy of the year. The temperance comes from the feminine energies as we see her beauty emerge ever more radiantly, in passive, unconditional holding of both. She won't interrupt the fight. She lets the men do their thing. More women are coming into their true and graceful feminine power like this, and the same with the feminine within men. Inner beauty settles us and reminds us of the greater cause at hand. Softness calms agression. Water puts out fires.
Be like the Earth
The earth is our teacher as she turns, stays consistent, holds secure, gives stability, and reassures us that when we connect to her subtle, undemanding heart, we won't get caught in the cross fire happening overhead. Be like the earth. Let this be the way that we navigate the coming wars. Breathe deep, stay centered in your heart and hold yourself back from reacting to the drama you'll see played before you. Remember it's all staged. Remember it's not what it seems. Remember you don't need to take sides. Pay attention to the details and structure in your life that allow you greater flow.
Try to learn from 2016, that squabbling with our siblings and fellow human kin over which side is right just gets us heated up and adds fuel to the fire. It doesn't get us a 'win'. Let's see if we can use the temperance of the waters flowing inside us to know what feels true and real, and what doesn't. Trust the gut. Trust the feminine in you. Trust the feeling. Stay gentle and don't get involved. Not even if the media sirens are blaring and righteous liberal-faced fire-engines are racing to the rescue.
It's all a mis-direction ploy to distract us from what's going on at the centre of the Earth and to keep us disconnected from our truth. Don't fall for it this time.
Cultivate Your Radiance
Instead, grow your soul garden. Feel the boasts of power and use it as boosts for your personal growth spurts. Keep your eye on your gold, your unique inner gift, your glorious abundance of something you love that was given to you so you could help nourish the world. Come out of the soil where you hide and let your face be seen by all who will look. The golden flowers of the earth are bursting into a full and rich spring this year - a carpet of shining beings to adorn the planet like the precious jewels that we are. Your beauty gives the Sun even more of a reason to shine and sustain us with unconditional love, and the Mother earth's bosom will swell with pride with the much anticipated awakening of her children of the new age.
The shadows in your own life will shorten when you decide to take action and shine bright.
The lack that has haunted you for thousands of years, reminding you of its dominance with an aching emptiness in your soul will suddenly feel less powerful, less intense and more boring than last year, and all those years that went before. You'll wonder why you focused on it so much, gave it so much attention and allowed it to keep you cowering and small. "I can't" will be like a non-sense word that's lost it's measure. "I Can" and "I Am" are suddenly going to be more prolific and uttered like water off a ducks back by so many!
Keep minding your business, keep your back to the wind, keep centered within. Keep your nose alive for the truth and your head screwed on when a drama fire alights. Keep your emotional waters calm and steady as you breathe deep and focus on your soul's plans that you are now making ready.
It's going to be an exciting year with a lot of positive growth and solid evidence of human evolution afoot. Don't let the bullies get you down!
Love and Relationships
Read the above bit again about the Sun and Mars, and see them as representations of the man or the more masculine one in the relationship. Also read it as the masculine nature in both of you. This is the energy that wants to control, dominate, direct and challenge; or alternatively protect, serve, guide and love unconditionally. Which one will you be? What energy will dominate in the relationship?
The woman, or feminine energy in the relationship, or within each of you, will be called to soften deeper, yield, become more passive in her efforts to do good, be seen and serve others.
The feminine says feel into the body, follow your heart, love your belly and trust your intuitive senses.
It will be a great year for the yin and yang energies to be balancing out, fights ending, battles between couples burning out, and for new levels of peace between the sheets manifesting. True love unions will be found where before it was barren. Babies will be made where before it was barren. And this is because we have been humbled, brought closer to our true nature, and had to surrender to it and love it. Masculine and feminine roles are levelling out - there is more equanimity in relationships. Genuine, unconditional love being found between couples is now appearing like a new and somewhat magical surprise.
I see children of 'White Solar' energy being born - true, innovative thinkers born with future technologies encoded in their DNA. They will be crystallised leaders of multi dimensional consciousness in 20 years from now - wow! Mate and consummate consciously. Give each other your all. Surrender to peace and know that you are loved. There's nothing to fight about.
Work and Reward
The same goes for businesses - you'll see new technologies being born this year. They won't be up and running yet, but you'll witness the infancy of a new future of energy, new thoughts, new ideologies, a foundational consciousness is being established all over the planet.
All your hard work is paying off, even if you aren't yet reaping your personal rewards. Your time will come, I promise. The efforts you've made to clean up, clear out and let go of the ancestral shame and shadows of earth's history that's shrouded you for years are valiant. If you can't yet congratulate yourself and see how far you've come and what you've contributed, then now's the time. Celebrate your wins in the part that you had to play anyway. I applaud you. You are being cosmically applauded! Now, stop beating yourself up, get off the stage with self sacrifice and self pity roles and go do something fun and worthwhile instead! It's your turn to ENJOY!
Happy 2017! = 10 = yin & yang = 1
All my love

Hello Angel - How's it going?
I invite you, right now, to sit back,
take a few deep, belly breaths
and drop your weight into your bottom.
Aaaand R E L A X.
I present an invitation. The current energy is to 2 do things simultaneously...
Firstly, take the wheel. Seriously, Take it!
This is YOUR LIFE.
What are you gonna do with it?
How do you want the ride to be?
Where do you want to go, and who with?
You're the boss - sort it out.
If you're carrying excess weight, baggage, passengers, stories, beliefs, relationship histories, old dreams, shoulds, coulds and would be's - Kick 'em out! (with love)
Similarly, but opposite, if you dropped someone of a while back but you need them on board with you now, go get 'em. They're waiting!
If you have out an outstanding debt of love, dreams or wishes to give yourself - go get em.
Strike a great deal with yourself, make a contract, accept help, invite opportunities -
Next, simultaneously and paradoxically is,
be a happy passenger!
Even though you do have to show up and take responsible ownership of your life,
it's not just you doing the driving.
It's actually not all up to you at all!
Imagine being 5 years old and sitting on your parent's lap in the driver seat of the car.
You're holding the wheel, but their feet are firmly on the pedals.
Dad controls when you stop or go.
You're not yet big enough to handle THAT level of responsibility - no sir-ere!
That's Big Stuff.
But get comfy sitting on the Creator's lap. You are held. You are loved.
Direct the way you want to go and feel like you're in control.
It's a great feeling.
Life has got you. Your Divine Nature has control. Destiny is at work.
If a force beyond your control keeps taking the wheel and steering you away from something,
it's onlt because it's not safe or right for you to go there.
You might hit a crash barrier, or a wall if you keep insisting.
Let go of the wheel til you re-centre.
Re-align your joy compass and try again.
Show up, decide, then relax and
Enjoy the RIDE!
What direction are you going in?
What Are You Attracting on your journey?
You are the driver - despite being little.
You are still responsible for your life whether you've taken the wheel and owned it, or not,because it was given to you. It was free. It's a gift. You can throw it away bit it's still yours.
Everything you have in your journey of life is because you called it in
with your magnetic energy field.
What are you magnetising?
Are you repelling or attracting what you want?
Maybe you need to change your magnetism!?
I spent a lot of this year neutralising an old magnet in me that had attracted painful relationships that didn't suit or fulfil me.
After first neutralising it - I had to re-magnetise it.
This meant re-calibrating to a whole new level of self worth.
It went up quite a few notches!
It meant I stopped doing certain other things and started doing more of what I REALLY LOVE.
Now I'm attracting what I want towards me simply by being creative, enjoying myself
and meditating in my own wonderful energy.
I'm in LOVE with being in my body, on this earth, in my heart and my energy field -
I'm in bliss with the Creator.
I have attraction to just BEING myself.
And I have traction with my Creator Essence.
And that's what I want to tell you about too...
It's all about getting TRACTION with the road right now,
being very present to what IS and what wants TO BE.
Grounded, real, connection. In you.
'The Inside' is the new 'Outside'.
Meaning; Reality is WITHIN you, not OUTSIDE of you.
Slow down at blind bends, breathe easy over the bumps.
How do your dreams land in your heart?
What do your high ideals feel like in practice?
If you really loved yourself within, and owned the road of your life,
What Would You be DOing?
...Talking of roads, let's think for a sec about what are they made of...
Well aged, decomposed matter that we have dredged to the surface and smeared over the earth.
So here's where our NOW meets our history.
Here's where our future path meets our ancestral past.
Your feet need to touch base, make contact and walk in peace along this road made of rotten history.
Your tyres need traction with the road ahead, so get a good grip on this third dimensional reality, and face your fears.
Let the light of your awareness meet the dark stuff.
The gap between worlds is closing.
It's no more Them V Us.
No more Light V Dark.
It's Us and We and Together so it IS.
All and One = Everyone in it together.
A proper alchemical transformation from Duality to Unity.
There is only ONE reality my friend - and you know it as well as I do.
The only thing that counts at the end of the day.
The only thing we keep when this life fades away.
The only thing worth dying for and
The only thing that we actually live for -
L O V E.
When we recognise Love's dance behind everything,
like the sun always beaming behind the clouds,
there's nothing more spectacular to feel grateful for.
Just a glimpse of Love is enough to fill you with an appreciation that will break open a bleak horizon.
When we look closely and see that our roads are made of millions and billions and trillions of lives,
big and small, that all came and went a long time before us,
just so that we can make a highway and go on a journey,
and feel connected to a path in Life - Now.
There's immense value in all that darkness.
There's gold in that oil.
If the road to hell is paved with good intention, perhaps the road to heaven is covered in black, sticky death residue?
May we beam in Gratitude for the past.
May we honour in Gratitude the sacrifices and deaths that build a road for Life.
May we be in a state of Gratitude and walk in Peace when we see the beauty and love in everything.
Blessings for your road ahead!
