Blogger and creator of the Chakra Cards, this website has something for everyone
I want to bring people together. I want to create bridges that connect us to each other and the living environment that we all share.
I saw this quote today on the Wake Up World Facebook page:
“People don’t need to be saved or rescued. People need knowledge of their own power and how to access it.”
And it got me thinking. It reminded me of when I started doing readings about ten years ago. People would come to me, looking for answers, but I knew that they already had the answers within them. I realised that by doing readings I was enabling them to not take responsibility for their intuition, for their own inner knowing, of their ability to sense their departed loved ones. But, I wasn’t helping them to make deep and lasting changes in their lives. I was providing a band aid, a validation for their Ego and a short-term solution. I don’t in any way want to dismiss the role of readers and psychics, they have their place and there are some amazing ones out there. I’m just saying that for me, my passion lies with not providing answers, but helping to guide people to help themselves. So, I gave up the readings and threw myself into my kids and teaching and figured that I could help one child at a time through the education system.
I didn’t realise why I became a teacher until fairly recently. I went to a workshop with Mark Bentley and did a free online profile. What came up for me was ‘teacher.’ I’ve fought so hard against this profession because I feel that within the school system, I cannot make a difference, but perhaps it is not a teacher in the system that is my calling, rather a teacher of the self. According to the report on GeneKeys, I am a teacher, it is my soul’s calling. Mind-blown. What this looks like in reality is an organic and ever-changing reality. And perhaps, I don’t need to know what it will look like, so I surrender it.
Lately, I’ve returned to that place where I want to help people, not by rescuing them or saving them, like the quote says, but by giving people practical and real tools to help build their relationships with themselves, intimate partners and others in their world. About 12 months ago, I wanted to start a women’s circle, where women of all backgrounds and ages could come together and connect and share. I didn’t know what to do with the idea, so I let it go. Then I was offered the opportunity to run the group through The Joy Sanctuary in Perth, it was at the time where I started saying yes to all that was offered by the universe. So I started putting together the course for it and realised that my primary intent for the women’s group was about connection; to ourselves and others.
I want to bring people together. I want to create bridges that connect us to each other and the living environment that we all share. Humans are social creatures, we connect deeply when we allow ourselves, but so many of us walk around wearing masks of who the world expects us to be, hiding who we really are. I want to empower women, empower men to drop those masks and connect deeply with themselves and others and provide deep and lasting experiences of healing. So with the help of the awesome Jane and Jo at Zig Zag Graphics, I created a series of question cards and Guided Journals.
We cannot deeply connect with each other through superficial conversations about the weather (as incredible as that phenomenon is on this planet), but we can deeply connect through asking the big and sometimes scary questions about our past, our present, our future and who we really are. The creation of the Chakra cards was really an organic process and OH MY GOD, it makes me so very excited at the possibilities for personal growth and development for people in the world. I don't know where it's leading me, but again I don't need to, I just surrender.
I want for people to buy these cards and journals when they are ready to take the greatest adventure of all, to find themselves, to be the best version of themselves that they can be. For people to see the brilliance in themselves and to take that out into the world, because right now, our world is undergoing a transformation, it needs healing on a massive scale and it begins with us, one being at a time. I am so very excited and passionate about this project and it all began with one simple question: What is my soul’s intention; is it to give or to take? And I want to give. I want to help people to be the best versions of themselves and to share that in the world. I hope that you can see my vision and start today in being the best version of yourself.
