Energy Flow

Energy flow on Earth is determined to some extent by the energy flowing through the universe because our planetary energy system is connected to it. We are governed by the law of cause and effect – what you do affects me and what I do affects you. This is different to karma where it is the individual whose future is affected by his/her own actions today. Although the effects of each other’s actions maybe subtle, just as ripples in a pond are sent from a central point and travel outward when a stone is dropped into the water, our actions when dropped into the universe creates the same results and its ripples are felt. To gain a greater understanding all you have to do is realise that everything is made up of energies, all ranging in vibrations and frequencies. The space where we stand is shared with those in other realms and dimensions because we are part of a multi-dimensional energy system connecting us to all of creation. Our body is in fact one massive energy system also consisting of many dimensions. 

While many people believe what’s happening in another part of the world will not affect them and are likely not to be concerned, we must all realise that this is not a concept to adopt if we are to restore the equilibrium of our planet needed at this time. Energy is continuous and therefore our thoughts and actions ripple out around us. If our thoughts and actions are kind then positive energies will be sent out whereas unkindness in any form will create negative energies, and these are all sent out into the universe, attracting the same energies and as they gather momentum the power behind them becomes colossal, and whether positive or negative these energies can be used anywhere in the universe to a lesser or greater degree.

As humans we are unable to foresee the consequences of our actions, unlike the many higher beings that exist in other realms and dimensions, planets and universes that are now coming forward to help individuals by sharing information and giving guidance as they have acknowledged that an acceleration of our spiritual growth is needed to raise our collective consciousness. More and more people are becoming receptive to the messages being delivered by an array of beings as Mother Earth prepares for a transitional shift to a higher dimension, and this is causing a spiritual revolution as vast numbers of us are able to tune into the energy frequencies of those who want to assist us. For many who experience this it can often feel that you are straddling two planes – the physical and the spiritual. This is because the transitional process has started and the metaphysical body or rather its energy, is being prepared to live in a higher vibrational state. These are unprecedented times; until recently it would have taken many years for a human to be spiritually fit to undertake much of what is being asked of individuals today but the universe is putting out extra energies to enable this transition; however these are also causing unrest amongst those who do not want to work for the higher good of mankind or the planet. It is human nature to detest those who want to cause us harm but hatred manifests into powerful negative energies which then create even more havoc and a vicious cycle is created, fuelled mainly by fear. When you remove the fuel the machine stops working so does it not stand to reason that without fear peace might stand a chance?

 Tune into the universal energies and dance to the rhythm of Mother Earth’s gentle heartbeat.

Life in Different Realms and Dimensions

In this world today there are many who dismiss the possibility of other forms of life from different realms and dimensions. The idea that these beings could be our teachers seems preposterous to those who have been closed off to the extent of not seeing beyond their own ego. We are falsely led to believe the world’s survival is dependent on its financial security. We are kept on high alert by those who use money as their only means of power to dominate the world. We have all been socially radicalised throughout our lives. We are born as free souls but soon become enslaved to social systems which dictate to us how we should live. We are brainwashed on subtle levels and learn to follow the doctrines set before us in order to become a normal member of society. However, we are now moving quickly into an era which is bringing with it changes. A ‘call to arms’ has been requested and many have responded. There are many jobs being carried out for the good of mankind by those who heard the call. Some are unaware they are doing so but countless are experiencing a spiritual awakening on some level which is enabling them to connect to beings in other realms and dimensions. This is not as far-fetched as one might initially assume when you realise we are all energetically connected from source. These beings, whether they are higher beings, creators, angels, spirit guides, E.T’s or nature elementals, all bring messages to teach us what’s needed at this time for mankind and Mother Earth to survive. They are our guides and in order to work with them we have to pay attention to aspects of our own lives and often as a result we find we have to step outside of the confines of conventionality and embrace a new concept which is spirituality.

Spirituality, or connecting to Spirit, is not a subject we are taught about in school, and as school is a method which serves to enforce the rigidity of our social structure and is responsible for laying the foundation for most of which we believe to be true, both in terms of academic and religious knowledge, it’s little wonder most of us dismiss the idea of spirituality. Yet, spirituality is crucial for our personal development – our development as a person. It’s at the very core of our being and when we lack our spiritual self we cannot be the person we intended to be. We become lost in the wilderness, unsure of our purpose which then causes us to question the meaning of our own existence.

We learn from a young age to believe all we are told and often lack the encouragement to explore our own beliefs in a system which stifles our own creativity on all levels. When our schooling is over we enter the adult world and our education continues as we expose ourselves to different forms of media streaming information designed to stifle our spirituality. We become convinced that our survival in the adult world centres around our physical needs and we strive to ensure we conform to societal requirements and all that is needed to ‘fit in.’ In the chaos of doing so we fail to recognise we are moving further away from the embodiment of our spiritual self until such a time when a spiritual awakening is inevitable and it is during this process that we become aware of the existence of a multitude of beings in other realms and dimensions. As we travel along our path we are able to ask for their guidance to help us on our way, and their knowledge serves as a catalyst in gaining access to our own wisdom gathered from many lifetimes, revealing our soul’s requirements which will allow us to fulfil our true purpose during our stay on Earth. With this comes a calling which many find difficult to ignore, and it is at this point in our lives we realise with utmost importance the time has come to reveal our true selves and be the person we intended to be.

Our Future Lives

We cannot comprehend a life after the one we are living now, therefore to understand the implications of how we are leading our current life and the importance of our lifestyle choices is a difficult task, but one which must be taken seriously if we intend to become an embodiment of Spirit and return to the light in our purest form, or to continue in the cycle of rebirth and death. This may take several, or indeed hundreds of lifetimes to achieve as this cycle is not limitless but is dependent upon our activities regarding all aspects of our physical, emotional and spiritual selves, and as a collective will determine our future life. Within this collective there are many issues to be resolved, rather like strands that are required to be pulled together and neatly tied off in a woven cloth.

Our physical form here is cumbersome but essential for survival due to the Earth’s atmosphere. As individuals we are multidimensional energy systems designed to function in other realms and dimensions, for this is essential if we are to carry out our agreed work at soul level. Until we complete this work we will continue to die and to be reborn.

Our purpose here, and the motive behind us fulfilling our soul’s work has been interrupted by many distractions which are all designed to distort our view of the bigger picture of what our life on Earth should be about. In the confusion we are prevented from realising what it is we have to achieve during this lifetime. Our outcomes have been governed by our ego which is fuelled by society’s expectations of us, and centres mainly on commercialism, pulling us deep into the void of the materialistic world where possessions and status have been developed for the framework of our existence here. We feel trapped and stifled by organisations, corporations and governments who seem able to control our emotions and subsequently our lives, by locking us into a system of fear, with the emphasis on money and wealth being central to it all. As a result, any joy and happiness we feel is sucked out of us and replaced with despair and unhappiness which causes negative energies to build up in our body, creating detrimental effects on our body as a whole. At the same time, we cannot live our lives recklessly, abuse our bodies or ignore our spiritual health too and expect that in our next life we will be exempt from problems. Bear in mind we create our own reality so it stands to reason that we must also be aware at all times of our words, actions and deeds and the effects they have on ourselves and others, and the planet as a whole, if we are to achieve a state of being which allows us to ascend; to become beings of Light as intended.

We have lost our way and overlooked the responsibility we have to ourselves in the process of being conditioned to comply with societal requirements. We expect to be bailed out by a higher power during our moments of helplessness when the going gets tough but yet, we often lack gratitude when our lives run smoothly. However, throughout our life we are given opportunities to connect to a higher power on a permanent basis and transcend our consciousness to another level.  Our chances to do so are often presented in the form of a spiritual awakening. It is during this process that we reconnect to our soul and discover our own unique reasons as to why we are here. As we continue to transcend in this life throughout our spiritual journey, we become more aware of our responsibilities as our ego falls away. It is this awareness which dictates the speed of our ascension and ultimately, where, how, and when we will take our next position in the rebirth and death cycle but by taking responsibility for ourselves – physical, emotional, and spiritual – and through maintaining our well-being on all levels in a holistic fashion, we can assist in this decision and thereby plan our future life.

Live this life responding to the awareness that our future lives are determined by the consequences of our past lives.

Spiritual Awakening

Sometimes there comes a turning point in our life, an awakening or an epiphany which makes us understand what our life’s about and what our work should be here on Earth. To reach this stage we might have suffered a physical or emotional trauma, possibly over many months or years which made us question our existence to the extent of asking ‘What’s the point?’ or ‘Why am I here?’

The combined truth put simply is this – there is a point to our existence and we are all here for a reason; everything is made up of energy. We are made up of energy and it expands out into the universe and our collective thoughts form a consciousness, not just creating our own reality, but creating a reality for our planet and in turn for the universe too. We are here because either our energy is required on Earth in some form or another, or because we have lessons to learn depending on our soul’s requirements, and there are many souls who have been brought here from other planets outside our own universe to incarnate on Earth, also with varied purposes and intentions.

There are several interesting theories as to why it takes a trauma of some sort to realise our true purpose and all seem to fit in with my personal experience; the illness I suffered from a few years ago was the catalyst which started the process of my awakening as I read an array of spiritual books by a host of authors, gathering as much knowledge as I could to look for answers as to why me? It was as if I was scratching around, trying to find my soul in order to identify what it needed to make me well again. Unable to get out and about I effectively removed myself from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and allowed my mind to be free of distractions while I focused entirely on finding the answer. Eventually my consciousness seemed to experience some kind of massive shift which brought with it many realisations (still on-going) as I took a massive leap of faith into a new reality. I’d undoubtedly and quite literally opened my mind up in desperation to be well and fit again, and once this had happened I started to develop the belief that I would be well again, no matter what.

I will leave you with a reassuring message from one of my well-travelled guides.

‘We are only visitors on this planet, stopping for a short time. In the big scheme of things we are only a small part of something quite colossal but we are not insignificant, far from it. Life on Earth is seen as a doorway to and from other worlds.’

Introduction by Joanne Rivers

Welcome 

I hope by sharing my own unique experiences and original inspirational teachings offered by guides, angels, archangels, higher beings and also those in the elemental realms, you will be encouraged to tread your own path towards Light and love to ultimately achieve enlightenment. My journey to this point has been extraordinary and it still continues as each day I learn more about the natural order of life on Earth, and of creation, and how everything is intended to be. At this time now it is vital we awaken to our spiritual self and accept with gratitude the information we receive. By doing so we can all help restore the Earth to a natural balance and one which it was intended for – to be a place of learning and healing as we travel from one incarnation to the next so we can take with us the vast and wonderful information we have gathered on the way.

There have been many times when I’ve tried to seek the views of someone else making the same journey to reassure me that everything I experienced along the way was normal. While I received guidance from the higher realms (Guides, Angels), I also felt I needed the perspective from a being in the physical realm which seemed incredibly hard to find. The odd one or two people I did meet were willing to talk about it to a point but were reluctant to share their deeper intuitions and inspirations with me. I read a tremendous amount on the subject, but the definition of a spiritual awakening and enlightenment including what one should experience seemed to differ depending on the author. Of course, now I have undertaken the process myself I can appreciate that everyone’s experiences differ.

Looking back, I had been given many prompts over the years to awaken but did not notice them. It wasn’t until I was in the middle of a long period of illness that I experienced the awakening which led me to the point I am now. It was during this time I began to read about enlightenment and spirituality, to look for answers more than anything. I wanted to know why me? It was an incredibly dark time in my life and I never imagined I’d move into the Light. In a moment of absolute despair, at the point where I felt I could not continue, I asked for help, not from anyone in particular, but I realise now the request went out into the universe, carried by my spirit guide who I was yet to meet. I soon received inspiration and felt prompted to find a Reiki practitioner. I really knew nothing about Reiki until I’d gleaned information off the internet before booking the session. Over a period of several months which entailed regular Reiki treatments, my health improved and eventually I decided to become a practitioner myself. Initially becoming attuned to level 1, and after a year or so, attuned to level 2. I am in no doubt that the energy of  Reiki cured me, and it is definite that Reiki was also the method responsible for my own enlightenment.

There are many of us awakening at this time and indeed the path is well lit. I will leave you with this thought to ponder on from Buddha ‘You cannot travel the path until you have become the path yourself.’
