Law of Attraction in a Nutshell

I have studied and grasped the rudiments of the Law of attraction. In its most simplistic terms like attracts like; so, want and lack attract more want and lack whereas happiness, laughter, joy and faith usher in juicy, joyous goodness. We all have the power to create our own reality. Absolutely everything is energy including our thoughts, emotions, mood and deeds, and it is through these that we manifest our lives. I understand this law intellectually and yet still find myself a master at self-sabotage. When life has dealt a person a string of less than auspicious cards it can be easy to dwell on loss and failure and, even though we may be striving for brighter bounty, this indulgent dwelling will destroy our most cheery and valiant efforts to shine and succeed as sure as eggs are bleedin’ eggs! Does this resonate with you I wonder? I have recently launched a new business, Brightsoul. I have designed a range of contemporary, spiritually inspired cards and each day you will find me reaching out to …

Third Eye Activation

So these days you will find me regularly meditating in an attempt to open my Third Eye. (No, I am not Cyclops sister!). The Third Eye is medically attributed to be the Pineal Gland which sits kinda central in the brain and resembles a wee Pine Cone – hence its name. This small gland, that nestles between the two hemispheres of the brain, produces Melatonin a Serotonin derived hormone which modulates sleep patterns. Biologically this gland is said to represent a kind of atrophied photoreceptor – that’s a simple eye to you and me; it is also, sometimes, called a Pigment Pit. In Theosophy, a collection of mystical and occultist philosophies, the third eye is related to the Pineal Gland and it is said that in ancient times humans had an actual third eye in the back of the head with a spiritual and physical function. As humans evolved this eye atrophied and sunk into what we now call the Pineal Gland. Interestingly Rene Descartes, French philosopher, mathematician, and scientist 1596 – 1650, believed this …

Creating Your Own Reality

As pure vibrational energy, I have come to believe that, each of us throughout the minutes, hours and days are responsible for creating our own realities by our thoughts and deeds. Now if this statement does not blow your mind and make your innards quiver with excitement, at the potential woven into these words, I fear you may not be ready for this revelation. I am no scientist – in fact in Chemistry lessons, back in the dusty recess of my ignoble laboratory school days, results and comprehension were thin on the lab bench as experiments bubbled over, exploded and left me bewildered and embarrassed. Yet Quantum Physicists substantiate my opening gambit and without trying to comprehend the science behind their claims I choose to believe them. My Spirit guides reiterate this truth to me. There was a time, before I was buffeted and became cynical with life, that things went my way. I can pretty much identify the time when things changed for the worse for me – although the great unravel took time. …

Non Judgement

In our physical world it is all too easy to define ourselves by the nature of our physical surroundings. Western corporate society feeds into our neurosis to be perceived as successful by selling us falsehoods such as eternal youth and superficial associated high status through materialism. Those who have no interest in pseudo enslaved success are judged lacking – I am judged lacking. In the last month I have been called both an ‘Abject Failure’ and ‘Tramp’ by folks I had hoped would know better. Sadly each of us is only able to operate from our present level of awareness so, whilst their words grate, I endeavour to shrug them off and pardon them. Ever since I can remember I have been a true free spirit. I have never taken kindly to being told what to do. As a very little girl my Mum despaired as I would come down dressed in mismatched clothes of my own choosing having been told expressly what I was to wear. At school I was singled out for being …

Spiritual Awakening

This Spiritual Awakening trip is weird and fascinating. I realise that I came late to the table and upon reflection comprehend that late equals 25 years whence I was too busy being busy trying to put bread on the table and create a feast which ultimately lead to famine. My comfy life had to seriously unravel for me to grasp that, through metaphorical starvation, I could awaken to smell the bake. Today this causes me problems as I am impatient to get on with what needs to be got on with. I am desirous of fast tracking my way too long dormant, supressed psychic gifts so as I can truly be who I realise I was always meant to be. This eagerness to progress at speed is, I know, pure folly as dipping in and out of the realm of spirit is not an undertaking to be taken lightly. It is a serious business which has the potential to be damaging to any meddlesome person without strong conviction and character. It is not a game …
