We hear a lot about the idea of duality and its apparent opposite, unity or Oneness. It seems the role or goal of consciousness is to transcend the former and move into a state of awareness that we are the latter.
What’s been made incredibly clear over this past couple of months is the connection between the masks we wear and the concept of duality. We are so entrained by existing structures and beliefs that sometimes it’s impossible to determine where/who we…Continue
Love is like a shiny diamond with many sides, all facing different directions, some in shadow, some in light. It is all-encompassing in a way that is heart-openingly simple and yet complex all at once.
Love is an action, a state of being, an emotion, a gift, a word, and so much more. It is the essence of existence, and it is everything.
Everything is Love.
We’ve heard this before, and it may not appear to be profound, until we strip away all the structures…
As we continue to shift into the incoming energies, one of the biggest changes taking place is to underlying structures.
This is affecting a broad spectrum of our existence in this dimension, and relationships are coming into clearer focus at the moment.
There are several layers to the idea of 'relationship' as it exists, and to the changes that are taking place at the root of these structures that have been in place for…Continue
We're heading into spring in the northern hemisphere, and all around there are signs of emerging new life and the promise of what's to come.
Snowdrops peek their heads above the hedgerows, and provide blankets of white in an otherwise muddied green landscape. Yellow aconite dot the hillsides and the tiny buds on the trees are starting to show signs of opening.
Spring reflects for a me a simple beauty, a process of deep trust and surrender that makes way for incredible…
Money: do you chase or do you follow?
This distinction has recently come to my attention and the pieces have just fallen into place. It may seem that the difference between chasing and following is a subtle one, but it’s a key one where money is concerned.
Take this example from human relationships: sometimes in interactions between two people (romantic or otherwise) one party is more interested than the other. They may pursue the other person, phoning…Continue
Gratitude is, at its simplest, a celebration of joy in being alive.
Celebration is not something we have to put off for another day, or for a special occasion, it’s there at our fingertips, to be practiced equally when we think no one is looking or when we know the world is watching.
It’s a state of joyful abandon during which the love we feel in our hearts is sent out in…Continue
Trust, like death, is an act of total surrender. It doesn’t always come easily, and we draw to us experiences in our lives that either take us closer to or further from trust. We may believe it to be sought outside of ourselves or bestowed on us by others, but ultimately it rests within each of us.
What are we surrendering to, when we follow the path towards trust? Ourselves, and Source. We’re surrendering to the idea that separation is a fallacy that exists only in our…Continue
Ah, the age old question. It’s been sung about, written about, lamented over, and pondered for eons. And is the answer a universal one that we can all agree on? That’s a good question.
Love is the essence of life. It is what we all are, what we all return to when we leave this physical plane, and what we all seem to seek while we’re here. People seek it through different things – relationships, material possessions, fame, you name it, the root of the seeking is the same: we…Continue

First of all, what is stress?
It’s not something external to ourselves, it’s not a situation or an experience; it’s our response to it. It’s a mental assessment of the situation (ie does this require me to worry?) and a physical response to that answer. The hormone that is triggered through our initial mental assessment of the situation actually causes our attention to stay focussed on the cause of the discomfort. A-ha. That is a really important…Continue
So, ‘The Shift’ has come and gone, right? And yet money still exists and the world hasn’t come to an end. So what exactly has happened, and how do we make sense of working with old, existing structures in the new paradigm?
Too often lately I’ve heard people lament that they have to pay for services that they believe should be free – such as spiritual guidance from those who have chosen that as a career. There’s some huge anger and resistance around the idea of paying when you…Continue
The past couple of weeks has been full of references to gurus and the guru-disciple relationship. What is a guru, if such a thing exists? The definition in the Oxford Dictionary states a guru is ‘a Hindu spiritual teacher’ or ‘an influential teacher or popular expert’ (from http://oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/guru, accessed 25 July 2013). These are the people that so many seekers flock to go and see, spending…Continue
It seems in spiritual understandings of the New Age there are many who suggest that the ego acts as a block to Oneness and enlightenment. The gist of the teachings says that the main goal is to drop our ego and become One with all so that we can allow for Source to guide us. Books have been written by followers of different faiths, by spiritual gurus, and by those wanting to follow the path of enlightenment on how to get closer to that place of ‘ego-lessness.’ Yet we are given egos when we…Continue
(Hi Trevor, this is a bit different from some of my other posts, as my channel has opened up to something slightly new. I don't know quite how to articulate what I mean, but it's like the amps have been turned up. 'These ones go to eleven.' )
Humans have been purported to be the most intelligent animal for centuries, because we are ‘blessed’ with rational thought. Other members of the animal kingdom have been given a kind of hierarchy according to how close they come…Continue
Our hearts yearn for peace and our souls desire for us to find the Love that exists in every moment, in every interaction and every cell of every being on Earth. Yet there are an awful lot of ways we could be convinced to live a life aligned with fear instead.
If we listen to the mainstream media, for instance, we might find out that there is a World-wide financial crisis that is devastating global economies; we might learn that terror lurks behind every closed door or in the…Continue
‘Money, money, money, must be funny, in a rich man’s world.’
This is the second in a three-part series on debt. This article focuses on your relationship with money itself, and as in the first part, asks you to examine the story behind your beliefs.

Getting to your debt story
This is the first in a three-part series on debt. This article pinpoints the spiritual meaning of debt and asks you to examine and begin re-writing your debt story.
Anyone who has been faced with debt knows what a never-ending struggle it can be. Every spare bit of income seems to go towards paying down the towering debt. It’s too easy to get caught up in the worry of meeting your responsibilities and appeasing your…Continue
That’s a good question. It’s complicated and simple at the same time. To be a lightworker is to come to awareness of your own inner light and to share it in the world. It’s knowing that the love and joy you feel in your existence is something you would be happy for others to feel. That’s the simple part.
The complicated part is in the information flying around about what the jobs of lightworkers are, how they might feel, where we might find them. The information is intended…Continue
Is it possible to make peace with an ideology designed to strike fear into our very hearts and souls? Is there a way to come to an understanding of the perpetrators as reflections of a part of ourselves, acting from a deep pain and the need to be heard in the world? As we’ve seen in numerous terrorist events from all over the world in recent history, often a different story emerges than the one that may have been intended. Instead of hiding in fear, girding ourselves against the bogeyman on…Continue

The concept of self love is touted as the root of so many things, from great relationships to abundance to confidence. From New Age gurus to fashion magazines, the words Self Love call out, imploring us to love ourselves first. But why? Why is it so important, and why is it so damned difficult sometimes? How do we attain this state of self love and what benefits will we actually feel?
Let’s begin with the concept of Self. As a good friend reminded me, it’s not a static…Continue
