How many of us have heard the saying ”The truth shall set you free”?
Wow have I learned the truth hidden within this wisdom. I realise we lie to ourselves out of fear of facing a reality that is present in our lives. We are not aware that the universe is trying to teach us something about ourselves that needs healing.
Little things like telling myself “Eating a big slab of cheesecake when also doing no exercise would not affect my weight”. At some level I use to justify eating the cake because in truth I wanted to do what I wanted to do but I did not really want to accept the consequence. I would lie and justify to myself why I was going to eat the cake. This has been true at so many different levels of my life over the years.
People who have known me over the last 10 years know I am passionate about understanding how we give our power away to life and WHY.
I realised last year this journey has been about ME learning to reclaim my own god given power by remembering my own unlimited potential.
If these insights add value to another so BE it but really it is about me awakening to my own journey.
Recently I was reviewing our “Reclaim your Power Flipchart” that supports our clients to be aware of when they have been giving their power away. (Playing below the line of taking responsibility)
I have looked at this chart 1000’s of times over the last eight years but never really understood or been prepared to face my own process to what happens internally when I have justified why things have happened as they have over the last 5 years.
I realised before a comment came out my mouth that justified a situation, if the thoughts originated from the energy of fear, the story I told myself was probably a lie because I feared the truth that needed to be faced, for me to come out the other side.
If I was able to tell myself and others the truth years earlier perhaps I would have been able to fulfill this journey earlier. For this to happen I would have needed to be able face the truth that we had lost millions of dollars which in turn meant I had to surrender my family home to the bank. The pain this bought up for me meant that I would lie or tell myself a story that would ease the pain; even if for some short period of time.
“In hindsight if I had of understood the value of releasing
how I was feeling at that time”
I could have moved through this faze with far greater ease. Great to see in hindsight!
I realise now the truth will eventually arrive at your door.
My behavior enabled others to lie to me because I was not ready to own my own mis-takes. On review perhaps we can only deal with small increments of our mis-takes at any one time because the reality of the situation can be too much to handle especially if you do not have the support to guide you through the challenge. This maybe the reason people go to alcohol and drugs because they do not understand a truth about our physical journey is that with great challenges comes amazing insights and healing.
Yes I can say this now as I emerge out the other side; I can see my own lack of belief in my own potential had me surrendering my power to people who had the same doubts and concerns but were perhaps better at selling a potential reality that subconsciously I desired.
Fame, fortune and an amazing lifestyle; all external representation that would tell me I was enough. The joke now was Gary and I was already living the lifestyle that the majority of the world would have loved to have experienced. We owned our home, traveled regularly with our 3 healthy beautiful boys. We had been in business for over 20 years and continued to grow each year: to top it off we were doing it with our soul partners, best friends and the best support team that we could have asked for; each other.
These challenges presented for us to see and remember the truth within the whole journey; we were always enough but we were tricked in believing we need more to prove to ourselves that we were successful in the eyes of others. This had use continually giving our power away to the life journey. I understand all is perfect because without these experiences’ I would not be able to explain to you how to start to reclaim your power.
“The truth shall set you free because it comes from the energy of LOVE”
and now I realise:
“that justification supported by lies coming from the energy of FEAR”
Hopefully this information supports us to face the truth of what life is presenting so together we can all heal with ease. I would Love to support you if you are ready.

By sharing my journey from the level I understand it today I hope it adds value to others. Enjoy the journey.
My whole journey over the last 10 years has been about me learning how and when/ why I give my power away to life situations or individuals. I have then been willing to do the work to release how I felt within these circumstances so I could finally understand this game called life from the perspective of my mind in collaboration with my soul.
Different task I know but ultimately it leads to experiencing freedom to BE ME.
The journey of life has taught me that Honesty, Truth and Transparency in all tasks that I undertake is essential, I mean sharing the good, bad and the ugly from this perspective will attract the support of the universe to open the door of opportunities to support me to fulfill my vision for my life.
“We either are healing the wounds or
fine tuning our talents!”
I have learned over my 20 years of personal growth journey that sometimes it has been hard to define when I was operating from my the mind / ego desire; compared to when I was open to hear the divine guidance that has me following my heart.
Initially I did not even understand there was a difference! I was unaware of the shadow components of the different areas of my life.
I did not understand the value of being consciously aware of what I valued in determining my experienced reality. Was my values driven by a mind materialistic value code or was I able to step back and BE in alignment with my higher vision for this life? BIG QUESTIONS!
Whenever my mind chatter had me giving my power to another person’s journey leaving me in a position of having no control or a defined role; this should have shown me I had sidetracked from my own greater vision journey for a time.
Why did I do this? Lack of understanding my full potential. Obviously I was not BEING who I needed to BE to fulfill my vision for my life. I have realized all happens in divine timing and sometimes there are things we need to learn or heal to fulfill our vision.
I needed to heal low self-esteem and self-worth issues so I could recognize my talents as a gift from God. It seems to me as I work with numerous clients many of us have the similar experience disguised within a slightly different story. I believe we are programmed to have experience’s to support our heart’s desire to awaken to our own magnificence; I now understand we all have this amazing potential that is not fully understood.
Personally I have finally surrendered to being open to become the inspiration that will ultimately inspire others to follow their heart. To let go of the stories that have me giving in to playing a smaller game due to the fear of what people may think or how this journey may impact my life. To understand all experiences are perfect for where I am in every moment. I figure I am either growing or healing and I choose to do it with ease supported by Grace.
Life truly is amazing and I finally feel blessed to be on earth at a time of great change. When the mind and soul are in balance and magic is following this pattern of thought.
This has me in alignment with the universal laws of life and open to the full support that the universe has to offer.

Emotion is our friend when we learn how to interpret its gift.
It is a shame we are not taught in school the value of feeling angry or frustrated.
In truth we cannot experience the feeling if we are not holding it within; we have a choice to hold it in and keep adding layers and layers of the same emotion until it get heavy like concrete. This may end up with us not being able to feel anything. This would have us living vulnerable controlled by outside forces and ultimately never to find our gifts and talents.
For me this is unacceptable especially when all we need is a bit of education. There is another way we can choose to Let it Go. This can start by breaking down the story that has an attachment to this emotion.
I am not making light of being bullied because I understand within most days we are all bullied to some extent. If you are living a life filled with joy and happiness after finding your gifts and talent that you are now able to share with the world and are experiencing no areas of challenge then I admit you are probably not being bullied.
Yet for the rest of us who have been at the result end of being bullied I hope I can shift your context about what is REALLY happening.
YOUR ENERGY is being STOLEN. “Nothing more Nothing less”.
Now depending on the meaning we attach to how this feels is where everything goes pear shaped.
Let’s look at a case of a teenager being bullied in school because she does not fit the norm of the rest of the sheep in the class. Maybe she intuitively knows it’s OK to be different or perhaps she looks a different shape, colour or maybe even has a physical difference. Really the difference is not important the way this child feels is the gift, if it can be understood at the time.
ENERGY IS ALWAYS IN MOTION it is felt as EMOTION. Emotion is the Gift!
- If the person attacked / victim feels anger good because they have still got some fight in them, different makes others feel insecure. The attackers energy falls (If they checked in they feel vulnerable or insecure) and they feel the need to get some energy; they take it from someone else unconsciously. Depending on how low their energy is they will take it from the most vulnerable or someone who appears to BE different (unconscious the victim may feel different to them and they do not understand your value)
- The system does not want us to BE powerful individuals because we are easier to control if we keep playing follow the leader. Times are changing, bring on our unique gifts.
- When we can understand energetically what is happening and why you are then able to reclaim your power. The attack originally is not about you. It is about someone feeling vulnerable unconsciously and they are trying to steal energy from whomever they can get it. If you end up being the victim then something within you wanted to be released and this is the gift, the feeling that arises was within the attached person just hiding and lurking around from past experiences. We do not need to go to the past just sender this emotion up to a higher power to be dealt with, for me its god or my higher self, Allah, budda or universal love whatever that support system that you believe in will work.
- Time to take responsibility for the fact you were part of the story. You did allow your energy to be stolen and the emotion of anger, self-pity, anxiety or whatever appears happened.
Now what happens next time someone tries to pull you down? What strategies’ can you put in place to make sure you are able to handle it if it was to happen again?
- What we really want is for you to protect your energy making it harder to steal. I teach client to imagine a beautiful pink energy bubble all around then and seal it with a “star of David symbol”. Asking for protection from anything that is not for my higher good. I want to make clear I am not saying you will not have any challenges because some challenges are sent to make us stronger. When you have a different context about what challenges represent you can see them as a gift not a torment. This protection keeps away energies that you are not yet able to handle. (another topic)
- So with the energy bubble in place you will have a choice to walk away from the bully energy or you may find that your energy is too strong and they will move to someone else.
- If you are feeling stronger you may be able to say while standing strong holding onto your own energy, “I hear what you are saying but that is not how I look at the situation/life.” You are not telling them they are wrong, you can acknowledge their point of view but you also hold your energy by making your point. From the point of energy control you may both get to keep your own levels.
- Make sure that you release whatever you are feeling after this encounter. It is not about feeling elated because you stole their energy. It is about maintaining your position from an understanding YOU are all YOU need exactly as You are in every moment.
When you are able to see life through the exchange of energy instead of making it personal life becomes a whole new playing field.
Hope you enjoy, I am open for any questions
Day 35 – What is “IS”
I have enjoyed reviewing different fascet of my life journey over the last 5 weeks of surrendering 12 kg to the universe with ease.
Interesting how I have spent my life wanting things to be different instead of focusing on “What Is” and being grateful. The game of our minds is NOT to be content, happy while in gratitude for what we are experiencing in the moment.
“If we truly understood this truth we would not be so easily controlled by the system at play”.
The media moguls have made sure we desire more or something different than what we have today. The materialistic reality needs us to be purchasing more things that ultimately get us into debt unconsciously becoming slaves to the game that has been created to have use controlled so that a few get outrageously financially wealthy.
This game expands in to all areas of our lives, the larger home, the better car, the different body along with the next fad of clothing that the industry describes as fashion this year.
It is interesting when I was caught up unconsciously in this game I never stopped to realised how blessed I really was, in truth I never desired for food, clothing or a roof over my head. I travelled the world stayed in the great accommodation and mixed with lovely friends.
“How come I could not recognise what I had at that time?”
I was unconscious to the hypnosis that I was experiencing that had me believing the stories that if I did or had XYZ that in some way I would be enough. The truth be known the mind would never be content while this game was playing in the unconscious level of my life.
Someone once mentioned you cannot change what you do not know that you do not know, very interesting insight!
So first we have to desire to wake up to the games that we are presently playing that we are unaware of at the moment.
Do you ever get the feeling that you really are not getting ahead? Do you ever have that feeling that there has to be more to life than you are experiencing at the moment?
I am guessing for most of us there is, we need to learn where in life we are giving our power away and how to take steps to “ Reclaim our power”. I have spent the last 10 years intensively studying this topic from the perspective of my life.
I enjoy sharing my insights, Love to hear whether you resonate with my story.
Have a great weekend
Day 21 – Expressing our Gifts and talent – the world is in need!
I love watching the talents that arrive on the X factor and Australia / USA / Britain got talent shows. The ones that you feel goose bumps when they sing; it is like they are channelling an angel or a famous talent of the past. They don’t need to try they just BE and then DO then the desired outcome/ HAVE is a given. Pure Joy!
Are they guaranteed fame and fortune? No because raw talent is one component of a big picture that evolves every day. Life does not come with a guarantee. The ability to feel those feelings will always be there if they remember their why they sang. If they do it JUST for the money (Getting sucked into the ego game) life may send many challenges they need to overcome eventually finding their way back to connecting with the raw purity.
I am starting to own my hidden or not so hidden talents, I can see how I got drawn off MY path by the expectations and promises I thought could be. All good now obviously there was so much I needed to learn and heal before I could fully hold my own power. The challenges only highlight what needed work so the process could speed up.
When I was in the thick of my crazy reality I lost the ability to see my own gifts and talents. I needed to seek help!
I needed to learn to see my ability to inspire others to take the next step required to fulfil an outcome. To intuitively know what may be going on for a person and to come up with that next easy step. To educate and open people to new possibilities and potential experience’s is one of my visions.
I do not do this on my own; I get support and insights from a higher power, a part of me that does not live on this physical realm. Call it intuition, wisdom or knowledge from experience; it really does not matter if it adds value to other people’s journey.
When I was a nurse for 28 years (I worked Royal children hospital coronary care unit) I would get a sense that something was wrong with a baby, the machines did not tell us what was going on yet with 10 hrs the symptoms showed. With my own boys, our middle son kept getting ear infections and I would know 24 hrs before the doctor could see the problem. Over the years he got to know ‘Kevin is going to be sick tomorrow” and I would agree. It became a joke or I would just wait one more day.
I had never heard the word intuition or at least paid any attention. I thought that is what all nurses did because of their education or a connection between mothers and baby. (I learned to always trust the mum) I was later to realise I was tapping in to something that most of us do not understand yet have the ability to fine tune for yourselves.
I would suggest start to ask “What did you enjoy as a child?” What dreams have you set aside? How have you made a difference to another human being? These may help uncover some of your gifts and talents.
As a child I would sing out in the backyard pretending to be a singing star. I obviously loved the response from the pretend audience. I am sure that is why I like teaching and talking to groups from my experiences via my heart.
Bye for today, Enjoy life
