I walked around my beloved garden the other day after work which usually gives me a lot of joy, but instead I felt very very sad. I realised that as my family and I were contemplating selling our house and moving that I wouldn’t get to see the
fruit trees bud again or taste the fruit of the next season, or see the flowers bloom again. It was quite intense, and I could see how this kind of feeling could easily put the brakes on the change, but when I connected to soul the very strong message was to move forward and that the sadness wasn’t bad at all, it
was a way of letting go with love to bring in the new. But as humans we are afraid of feeling these feelings – we want everything to stay the same no matter
how much it sucks.
Usually my mind would kick in and start to interpret and analyse these feelings, firstly as a bad thing and maybe as a sign that we shouldn’t sell and move house. But this time I just allowed the emotions to flow without involving the mind, and it turned into a whole different experience. Emotions are not a bad thing. They are part of being human and need to be felt and expressed. The more we can do this consciously the healthier and clearer we will become.
When I shared the garden story with my friend Peter Peut, he came up with his own insights about what goes on between emotions and the mind…..
An emotion is a specific frequency of energy in one or more chakras in the etheric body. People “feel” these energies because they are a change in the normal chakra vibrations. Emotions or temporary energy shifts are a product of the etheric body and detected by the physical body. They have nothing to do with the mind. In a human with a ‘clean’ energy field, an emotion can be experienced by the physical body as just an experience.
The normal human mind sees its physical body feeling these energy shifts and tries to control them. Blocking sadness because it sees it as bad. Trying to prolong sadness because it thinks it deserves it. Blocking happiness because it thinks it doesn’t deserve it. Trying to prolong happiness because it feels good. The only thing the mind achieves interfering with emotions is breaking and fragmenting these energies . These broken bits of energy hang around and pollute the physical and etheric Bodies. Emotions gradually become muddied and unclear because of this. The etheric and physical bodies become diseased.
The human mind, from an early age, gradually kills its own physical body. Growing old and disease, in all its forms, are the result of the mind interfering in the natural process of the physical and etheric bodies. We all know the saying, “listen to your body”.This can be rephrased as “tell the mind to butt out and leave the physical body to do its own thing”.
The mind naturally tells the body what it would like to do. However the human mind takes this too far and tries to control and micro manage everything in the physical body. Time to“back off”.
I agree with Peter’s words. Next time you feel an emotion, don’t think about it, just feel it!
Many of you would have read my 11:11 story first published in 2011 and also on this blog in 2013. I have had a lot of people say they also see number patterns especially the 11:11. I thought it was time to revisit this story and maybe share a few new personal insights and meanings about the number pattern.
I still see 11:11 regulary. sometimes it will be 1:11 or 11:11 on the digital clock, email time stamps, facebook post time stamps or text messages. Other times it will be on number plates, signs or drawings. Often the frequency intensifies for a couple of days and then I won't see it again for days even weeks. I take notice when I see the patterns, I look for signposts and reasons and try and learn from what I am seeing and when I am seeing it. Recently I followed an 11:11 trail on facebook which led me from post to post until I came to a youtube video that had a very special message for me.
Today I had an insight on what the deeper meaning for me might be. Every number has form and structure and 'boundaries' to it, except for the number 1. It is simply a line drawn up and down. It just exists as it is, a simple line, with no limits or boundaries to contain it. The 11 is almost like a doorway, so that you could walk through the middle of the two ones. It is like an invitation - an invitation into the unknown, which has no limitations.
Learning from the soul connection work I am doing I am understanding the limitlessness of the soul and the souls connection to creation itself. I have learned that we are creation incarnate and our soul is only here to experience. So the creation and experience go hand in hand, we create the experiences we wish to experience and there are no limits to what we can achieve because we are creation! Unfortunately we put limits on how our life should look, we follow the rules and stay in our safe zone. We don't tap into the creation or unlimited potential that we have. The 11:11 is a reminder to walk through the doorway into the unknown and to create anything our heart's desire when we get to the other side. Unfortunately it is so scary to do this. The universe is showing the 11:11 over and over again as a sign to take that leap of faith and just go for it. The support will show up when that first step (or leap) is taken.
11:11 will probably have different meanings to others but this is what I am getting from my number pattern wake up call at the moment. Take that leap and just go for it!
When we connect to our own soul we let in our essence - the truth about who we really are. We connect with our inner power and strength where there are no limits and no fears. When we do this, we can also connect with others' souls from this space of our soul. Connecting with another person's soul from this space means you can see past the illusion of life and drama and just feel the peace within. It feels like you can say “I see you”, " I really see you".
You can look past their energy field and all the thoughts trapped and the beliefs lurking, you can go beyond that into the pure goodness (god-ness) that they really are.
This can be quite frightening for most people as they may feel vulnerable or exposed and they will find ways to block you connecting with their soul. I know I had a lot of trouble trusting my soul when I started to become aware of its power. I thought it was going to lead me into trouble just so it could gather its precious experiences from this life. But once I overcame this trust issue I realised it was just leading me to joy and love. This didn’t mean bad stuff wasn’t going to happen it meant that the soul would navigate my path through, offer the deeper understanding and knowledge of love and what it all meant.
When we connect with our own truth/power/essence (soul) and just be this, just live this, then an amazing thing happens. Without having to do anything, others around you will automatically start to connect with their own souls also. They may not have an understanding of this or know what is going on but the subtle changes will be there. It is like, when your light turns on, then others “learn” how to turn their light on as well.
When you start to connect with soul and become more authentic you may notice you come across other people who just inspire you to be yourself. You feel comfortable being authentic in their presence, there is no ego at play, you don’t have to be your personality/ego, force or pretend anything, you just have to be yourself, it feels safe to express who you are and what you feel. You have formed a soul connection.
We are always exchanging energy with others, whether it is in a shop or on the street or at the theatre. All those we encounter, make eye contact with or speak to are exchanging energy with us and us with them. We connect, exchange and we experience. That is the circle of life!
Having someone allow you to connect with them at a soul level is a very special experience. I am most grateful for being able to do that regularly. When you do meet someone that you can connect soul to soul with it is amazing. There is no ego or pretence, just heartfelt soul to soul joy and love and understanding.
Connections are our purpose. We are here so our soul can experience. We can’t experience anything as a stand alone entity. We connect with others to have experience. We connect with nature to have an experience. Any experience is the result of a connection. It is our soul purpose. It is a yearning of ours. Our egos often misconstrue this desire for connection and try and manifest all sorts of emotions and ulterior motives, jealously, competition, arrogance and power, but it is simply connecting.
I look forward to connecting wit
I believe that knowing who we are at our unique soul level holds the key to living an authentic and joyful life. Once we know who we are, we can begin to BE who we are, and then BECOME who we were always destined to be.
Thank you for your support of this work....
