What does 2014 have in store?

Happy New Year to you!  In this newsletter you will find my annual insight into the emotional influences behind the coming year.  For those of you who are new to my newsletter list and have not read one of these before, here is a little bit of background.  To arrive at the numerological and colour influences I am using the Aura-Soma equilibrium bottles as my basis. I find the equilibrium bottles very accurate in terms of soul evolution, I have been using them with my clients for many years.

The Soul Essence of 2014

New Year’s Eve has been and gone and it was an especially potent New Year’s Eve as it was also a new moon.  This is the time of the year when we traditionally make New Year resolutions and set our intention and goals for 2014.  Now as we move into 2014 many have had to face the disappointment that 2012 was not the change they expected and hoped for.  2012 with its sum of 5 meant that we were faced with many of our underlying emotional issues that needed to be resolved and healed.  2014 is going to give us another major hit of this energy with the added influence of the energy of the test of faith.  Many are already starting to feel this energy as they experience the feelings of; why bother, nothing works anyway, resulting in a complete loss of faith and spiritual spark.  So Let’s see what 2014 has in store for us emotionally and spiritually.

bottle 20Even though I have discussed Bottle 20 before as it is the backdrop of our current century , let’s do a recap for the New Year. The Aura-Soma bottle 20 is Blue over Pink, this bottle is called the Star Child/Child Rescue. Its primary impetus is the communication of unconditional love, which of course can only be extended out to others when we have first reached that state within ourselves.  Bottle 20 helps us find the child within, and heal that child.  Our child self is very important as it is the foundation of our current life ego and our ego is the child of our spiritual self.  There is so much emphasis in our society on mental health but it would be better called emotional health as it is our emotions that rule us when we are out of balance.   Emotional maturity is not reached by suppression of our emotions but mastery of them and in so doing becoming independent of the opinions and approvals of others. With emotional maturity comes awareness and responsibility. There are many different levels of mental intellect which means we often cannot relate to someone intellectually, however through our emotion and feelings we have equal capacity to relate with everyone.

Bottle 220 can be broken down to 2, which is Bottle 2 blue over blue – peace on every level. The only way I know to create peace on planet earth is for each and every one of us to find peace within ourselves.  We all need to find the love an acceptance that comes from within.  Unfortunately we are taught from the time we leave the womb that we must seek love outside of ourselves. When we cannot find a satisfactory source many turn to drugs, prescribed or “recreational”, alcohol or the endless pursuit of things and people to make us happy.   For our hopes and dreams of a new world of peace to manifest we must manifest peace from within first.  We need to stop acting like emotional children waiting for the parent or another authority to make it alright for us.

Bottle 2 also embodies the energy of our struggle with authority.  Our first authorities were our parents.  If you have problems with authority, your unconscious mind will reproduce this experience in many different areas of your life.  We cannot have peace whilst we are still struggling with corrupt authorities or uncaring institutions. The secret is to understand that we cannot change them from the outside; we must change them from within each and every one of us.  Peace on every level means within all the layers of our mind, body and soul.  Bottle 2 challenges us to become our own inner authority, which does not mean that we never listen to others or that we believe that we know everything.  Our inner authority is primarily for us and us alone, it should not be used to enslave others to our ways. A balanced inner authority naturally acknowledges and respects the inner authority of others.  An inner authority that suggests or demands dominion over others is corrupt. It is an honour and a privilege to have others listen to your inner wisdom and guidance not a right bestowed by virtue of social role, gender or age.

Bottle16The final influence hidden within Bottle 20 is Bottle 16 violet over violet.  Violet is obtained when you shake Bottle 20 and the pink and blue mix together producing violet.  Violet has always been associated with positions of power and authority traditionally because the colour was expensive to produce.  Bottle 16 is called the violet robe because it can hide a multitude of “sins”, alluding to the fact that those in power and authority are not necessarily always those who act from a balanced position.  A position of authority can become a vehicle of self service rather than service to the greater community as well as oneself.  In order for each individual to awaken to their own authority they must find their true self, which is beyond the emotional wounding they carry.  The energy information to completely review who you are and what is right for you are contained in violet over violet.   Violet is also the balance between heaven and earth and all should be very mindful of giving up worldly authority to only take on another authority in the form of spiritual guides etc.  In the end you must be your own authority, everything and everyone else is just information upon which to base your own choices.  With personal choice comes responsibility and accountability.  16 adds to 7 which is the sum total of 2014 so I will discuss bottle 7 further on.

bottle21The frequency of bottle 20, 2, 16/7 are the obvious everyday usage backbone of the 21st century.  So the frequency of 21 is kind of hidden.  So let’s have a look at the hidden energy of bottle 21 also.  Bottle 21 is green over pink and the bottle contains the energy needed to create a new space and a new direction coming from a place of love.  The challenges of bottle 21 are being resistant to change and being caught up in one’s own pride a vanity.  As a whole our society is enamoured with our technological advances and our collective pride in our ‘man-made’ structures and we are often unwilling to see the cost of these advances.  Very little of our human action and communication comes from a place of true love of Self let along another.  Coming from a place of love does not exclude anyone or anything whether it is natural or man-made.

 aura-soma bottle3Bottle 21 adds to 3.  Bottle 3 is blue over green.  In bottle 21 the green is in the top fraction.  Any colour in the top fraction is more focused on the conscious self or the ego.  The same colour in the lower fraction has the same essence except it is aimed at the unconscious self.  These two bottles combined together are calling us to create a space of love and new beginnings not only in our outer reality but also in our inner reality.  Bottle 3 is called the Atlantean heart bottle.  This bottle sums up the spiritual tasks of our current age.  Clean up our wounds from our mythical past – Atlantis.  Atlantis was a place of great intellectual advances but emotional immaturity caused us to lose connection with our environment and each other.  We must understand that it is not enough to connect intellectually and technologically we must also connect emotionally.  It is through our emotional connection that we truly understand the effect we have on others and our environment.

We are about to step into our 15th year of the 21st Century, you will need to judge for yourselves how well we are doing so far with the energies of 20 and 21.

bottle14Okay so let’s look at the new energy that 14 brings into the mix.  Bottle 14 is clear over gold and contains the energies required to find wisdom in a New Age.  For me this means there needs to be an evolvement of the Egoic Self, the part of us that says I am this and that and that I know who I am.  In order for us to move into a New Age it will be necessary for us to let go of the concepts that we have of ourselves in the current age.  Once again it is our scars and wounds that cause us to identify with certain life circumstances and particular truths about ourselves and the world that we live in.

In order for our society to change we must change – our wisdom must change.  Our ego likes to think it knows what truth is, but until we can examine what we accept and hold dear to us as truth we will not change.  Much of our truth at the moment is what I call intellectual truth which arises from the yellow solar plexus.  It usually does not take in the whole picture, for example you may believe it to be true that modern medicine is that way of the future and therefore disregard any other forms of healing.  This part of us is very herd like in its thinking; it usually adopts the collective pervading truth.  The gold of bottle 14 is more than solar plexus truth, it is wisdom.  Wisdom is the application of truth from a broader perspective.  Wisdom would say that all forms of healing have value depending on the person and the circumstances.  There are two reasons why we generally cling to a particular truth – our emotional investment and two mental laziness; we just accept what other tell us without any personal thought and mental exploration. I don’t remember who said this but it is a quote that goes something like this– “there is no such thing as ultimate truth.  So choose your truths carefully and if they do not serve you ditch them for ones that do”

During 2014 we will be called to examine our own personal and collective truth.  Not only what we consider to be true about the outer world but also the truth about ourselves.  It is no longer good enough to accept handed down truth; we must examine and come to our own conclusions.  Changing our truth can be a life changing experience.  Changing our truth is also a very spiritual experience.  Many years ago I had an experience that changed how the child within me saw herself.  I was learning hypnosis at the time and the words of one of the scripts was “the truth is, there is nothing wrong with you, there never was”  I instantly brought myself out of trance and said to the trainer “well then you had better tell my mother that”

Bottle5Bottle 14 adds to 5, Bottle 5 is yellow over red and it is called the Sunset and Sunrise bottle.  Bottle 5 is a very complex bottle on which I could write pages as 5 is one of my major life influences.  In a nutshell bottle 5 concerns sorting out your emotional wounds, letting the sun go down on them and the sun can come up on a new day with greater clarity and wisdom.  The other challenge of bottle 5 is to use your energies wisely.  In other words, just because you can, doesn’t mean that you necessarily should.   Bottle 5 gives you the energy to overcome difficult past situations and move on, to synthesize new wisdom that has been born out of the half truths and pain of the past.  The energies of bottle 5 help you develop emotional “muscle” and maturity.

Aura-Soma bottle 7When you add up 2014 you get Bottle 7 yellow over green.  This bottle is called the Garden of Gethsemene and its primary essence is the test of faith.  Can you let go and trust the process of life?  Bottle 7 asks you – can you make wise decisions about your life? Can you find your purposeful direction? and mostly do you have faith in yourself?  In order to make appropriate decision we must learn from the decisions that we have already made.  If we do not, we will keep making the same mistakes over and over.  To learn from our mistakes and make different decision requires that we change the source energies that caused us to make the original decisions.

Many spiritually minded individuals have been working on themselves, healing their wounds, taking action, changing their thinking and beliefs.  Unfortunately on many occasion the results have often been uninspiring.  Many have felt disenchanted with the whole self development process as it has often left them feeling as though they are still stuck in the energy of powerlessness.

Over the last 20 years I have experience many different forms of personal development and observed the effects on myself and others.  Most systems tend to target a particular aspect of consciousness and leave other aspects untouched.  The primary motivation and basis of all of these systems is that we are the creator of our life circumstances.  This axiom seems to be true for a few and totally not true for the majority.  I personally do not understand why this is so, but I do know that it is not necessarily to do with the individual healing system or the practitioner.  One reason could be that whilst we are seeking to be the one and only power in exclusion to the process and flow of life we are missing an essential wisdom.   Are we so caught up in ‘I am the source of all creation in my life’ that we don’t see what else is going on? Therefore we can become caught up in an endless cycle of self-examination and often self-recrimination? The scary part is of course, if we are not the source of our own creation then we are powerless after all.  The next question is “if we are not the creator of our own lives, then who or what the hell is?”  I am sure that most of you know the most enduring standard answer to this question.  But is this just an old truth that no longer serves us. In some ways it is a belief in a higher power that is bigger and stronger than us that allow the type of institutions that we currently have in our society.  It is this same believe that also causes us to take no action ourselves, preferring to leave it to someone else to fix.

Those who have been disenfranchised, depowered, demeaned and demoralized have sort to find personal power so that they never have to experience these feelings again. In fact it is those who have suffered the most who tend to walk the personal development or spiritual path.  Individual personal power seems like a nice way to take charge of what previously seemed so out of our control.

Perhaps part of the answer for 2014 is yes you are a powerful creator, but you are a co-creator that participates with many other co-creators and that individual power is bound up in collective power.  Humanity has been through some developmental steps; symbiosis, dependency, co-dependency and independence.  It is now time to take the next step which is inter-dependence.

It is likely that many will find their personal power in 2014 only to lose it again as it will not be as they thought it would be.  Some are already experiencing this and are quietly rocking in the corner because they do not know what else to so. This experience will cause a crisis in faith and a loss of motivation and joy for life as it is likely to require you to give up all that you thought to be true. Therefore, when you hit this spot it is time to examine what you consider to be true and decide whether it still serves you?  Or to put it another way – a Buddhist saying is; that when you get to the other side of the river you need to let go of the boat that got your there.

2014 is going to be an interesting year. So as you strive to make and uphold your New Year’s goals and intentions for 2014 consider; are you doing what you have always done and is it working?  But mostly are your resolutions, goals and intentions coming from a place of love.

The Soul of July 2013

As I sit and write I am listening to the rain on my iron roof as I gaze out the window into the beautiful white misty fog.  It is certainly a winter day today in the Adelaide hills.  Since the Winter Solstice last month we are now moving into a more expanding cycle as the days become longer once more.

The numbers for July 2013 are 7 plus 20/2 plus 13/4 added together we get a total of 13/4.   The intensity of bottle 6 red over red from last month has gone.  I saw many people have complete mental or emotional melt downs last month as they hit a wall of stuckness and frustration.  This month is going to be a little more gentle, but no less challenging.

Bottle 7Bottle 7 yellow over green is called the Garden of Gethsemene.  This bottle is a challenging combination because it is a test of faith.  Not a test of faith in a god or goddess but a test of faith in yourself and how much trust you can put in the process of life.  It has been my experience that those who have this number in their birth numbers are always testing themselves.  Once they have passed one experience they will create even greater challenges to see if they can endure and pass the next one.  These individuals indeed make life hard for themselves and put themselves through challenges that were not strictly necessary.  The message for July is perhaps to allow life to unfold naturally and organically.  There is no need for us to add embellishments or keep moving the goal posts.  Have faith and trust in yourself that no matter what life brings your way you will be okay, you will prevail even if the experience is unpleasant.  Be cautious of unnecessary tests and challenges that you or others set for you.  All in life is not necessarily learning in the way we think.  Sometimes some things keep happening because we have to learn something from the process, sometimes the lesson is just to say “I don’t need to keep doing this challenge over and over”.  There is no longer anything to be learnt except to say no.  It is only our deep internal wisdom that will actually know which action is required.

So last month there was lots of kicking and screaming I don’t want to do this.  During July take a step back, be still and try to ascertain what is really going on.  Allow yourself to connect with and see the bigger picture and your role in it.

bottle4Bottle 4 yellow over gold is called the Sun Bottle.  Bottle 4 played a role last month also as it will every month this year because of the 13/4 in 2013.  What is significant this month is that 13/4 is a double influence this month, once from the year and once for the total.  Like bottle 7 it has yellow in the top fraction so you will be called to face your fears and allow them to be transformed into joy.  So look to your deepest fears, check out what is really going on, learn from the experience and turn the experience into the gold of wisdom.

Within Australia and also in the USA at the moment there seems to be a political and legislative backlash against women and feminine rights.  Unless we really look at what is going on and take action rather than re-act we may find ourselves back in a period very similar to the time before feminine awakening.  As a consequence having to do the same things over again.  Perhaps we all collectively need to look at where we are at the moment and make the necessary changes fearlessly and courageously.  Sometimes the change required is to get out of our own inertia and indifference and say NO.  Let go of the fear of the process of change, but at the same time making sure that the change is not a backward step.

It really is up to each and every one of us whether the sun gets to shine equally on everyone or not.  The pursuit of the false sun in the form of gold and power over others is the challenge for us all to tackle individually and collectively.

Have an enlightening month every one, let your sun be the gold of your personal wisdom.  If your sun is less than bright at the moment perhaps it is time to remove some of the emotional clouds.

The Soul of June 2013

June the first month of winter; the days are becoming longer, colder and darker.  Winter is often a time of curling up and staying inside both physically and spiritually.  Consequently winter can be a time of introversion, a time for planning for future action when spring returns.  So let see what’s in store this June.

The numbers for June 2013 are 6 plus 20/2 plus 13/4 added together we get 12/3.  This Month is going to be interesting for many.  You may recall from the Soul of May 2013 I discussed how many were waking up and realising that their relationships were less than fulfilling and in some cases quite abusive.  June takes you even further along the journey of deciding whether to say or not.

bottle6June of course is Aura-Soma bottle 6, red over red.  Red is the colour of physical vitality, the capacity to get up and go.  It is red that gives us the energy to bring about change, take action.  However, in Aura-Soma red is a combination of yellow and orange.  Orange helps us to bring ourselves together emotionally, follow our passion and experience emotional satisfaction from our physical efforts.  Yellow is the colour of joy, the Ah Ha of life’s spiritual awareness.  The opposite traits are inaction, feeling stuck, unable to move, riveted to the spot by fear and certainly no passion or love for what it is that you do.  Unfortunately the shorter and darker days and colder weather tend to bring out the negatives of red.  Ever since May’s full moon feeling stuck, unable to move is what I have noticed from many clients, even before we moved into the calendar month of June.

Whilst we all experience our personal trials of feeling stuck and unable to move on.  I feel that collectively many have reached the point of feeling disappointed that the much longed for and promised changes of 2013 have not materialized.  There is often a part in all of us that really doesn’t want to make the effort, do the work required to bring about change. Sometimes because we don’t believe we can.  We would rather someone else do it for us.  This is the emotionally immature child within which brings us to Bottle 3

Aura-Soma Bottle 3 energy healer australiaBottle 3 blue over green.  For those of you who have read my previous blogs you will know that one the challenge of bottle 3 is emotional maturity and the other challenge is finding your own space or being the master of your own space.  It is a sad but true fact that most individuals no matter their chronological age, their emotional age is around two.  In order to step out and bring about change in ourselves or in our lives we often need to stand alone, others do not always support our decisions.  We need to understand that we are no longer the small child dependent upon nurturance from our parents.  We have to have the courage of our convictions and fly the nest emotionally.  Whether you use the energy of red to propel you forward or remain stuck in inaction is up to you.

bottle4The other major influence in June is bottle 4 yellow over red.  In this bottle the yellow contained within the red is no longer hidden it is obvious for all to see.   When we face our hidden fears, the sun can finally return – Fear is transformed into joy.  The red in the bottom fraction of this bottle is the impulse and resources that we need to change our physical world to one that is pleasing to us.  When we are truly happy, then those around us also bask in our glory.

June is going to be an interesting month! It will be turning point for many and the sun will certainly return for these individuals. They will finally bask in the warmth of the new life situations they create and enjoy.  For others it will be more of feeling stuck and unable to move.  What are you going to choose?

As always when you are ready for help to move through your emotional blockages and step back into your own golden sun I am here to help.


The Soul of May 2013

I missed April due to my hard drive crashing and consequently having to rebuild my computer.  Fortunately I recovered most of my data.  Even though during April it was my computer that was behaving badly, I noticed many clients becoming aware of the bad behaviour of their partners.  It was a time when many started having a cold hard look at the types of relationships they were engaged  in.   For us to be abused by a partner, a parent, a sibling or an authority figure we usually have the mental, emotional and spiritual patterns within us that facilitate this situation.  This does not mean that it is therefore entirely your fault.  It takes two to tango!

Those who are abused often blame themselves – if only I could please them more, or do it better.  Sadly, those who are abused often do not know how to stand up for themselves or even consider that their experience is unhealthy.  The reason I am doing a re-hash of April is because May can be a time for not only licking your wounds but also a time of great healing.  It is one thing to know that you have been abused it is another thing entirely to take responsibility for healing.  It is another thing again to take the steps to heal and change yourself to be free.  If you do not, you will remain a victim.

The numbers for May 2013 are 5 + 20 + 13 = 11/2bottle4

I am not going to go into the Aura-Soma bottles 20 or 13, if you want to recap their influence check out my previous blog The Soul Essence of 2013. Instead let’s take an in depth look at the energy of bottle 5, yellow over red.  When I take in a new client that has a 5 in their birth numbers I carefully explain to them that it is highly likely that in their early years or in their past lives they have been abused quite significantly.  This abuse causes these individual to become hyper-vigilant, always looking for the next possible threat, it is very hard for them to relax completely.  These individuals also tend to be very sensitive, because they are constantly vigilant to the slightest changes in their environment that may indicate a threat. 

The challenge of a five and therefore of May is to heal your wounds once you have recognise that you have indeed been abused.  Healing of your wounds cannot be done by taking drugs or just intellectually working through the issues.  Deep healing must take place emotionally, spiritually and physically.  This is particularly challenging for fives as they are like skittish rabbits, always wanting to run away.  Once your wounds are healed you can enter a state of relaxation and perhaps even step into a place of emotional bliss.  This is the promise of Bottle 5 to resolve the red anger in the bottom fraction and the yellow fear of the top fraction.  When you shake this bottle you obtain orange, the colour of emotional strength and protection.

Aura-Soma Bottle 11Bottle 11, clear over pale pink.  This looks such a beautiful bottle and it is.  It can be an expression of love and clarity.  The shadow side of this bottle is enormous sensitivity, even more than bottle 5.  This bottle does not necessarily speak of abuse but an experience that was so overwhelming that the soul completely shut down so that they could no longer feel.  Of course this was a survival mechanism and obviously overwhelm can come from many sources not just abuse.  The fear of an eleven is that they may never have the courage to feel again.  But feel they must if they are to become whole once more.  It is our emotions and our feelings that give us pleasure and allow us to engage in life with wonder and enthusiasm.  When we become devoid of feeling life seems to have no appeal no colour.  We can become digital, much like a computer.

Peace on Every LevelBottle 2, the product of bottle 11.  I have discussed bottle 2 at length in previous months, notable February.  However, I just want to add that in context with May, this is our opportunity to heal our wounds in particular from those who have been in positions of authority for us.  Of course the first experience of authority if with our parents.  Bottle 2 encourages you to look at your early childhood experiences.  Most parents do their best given the resources they have available, however many children grow up feeling that they were short changed.  Unfortunately many children are abused and go onto create relationships that matched their early years.

What I want you to understand is that whether your past defines you or becomes the grist for personal development is entirely up to you.  Take the time this month to heal, allow yourself to become stronger.  It is up to you whether life keeps throwing salt into your wounds.  However, becoming insensitive and unfeeling does not constitute healing.  Healing allows you to open and blossom and use all of your resources to their best advantage not only for yourself but also for others.

If you feel that it is time to let go of the past and become all that you can be, please give me a call and I will help you and show you how.  It is always much easier to heal when you are in the presence of another who can support you throughout your journey.

The Soul Essence of March 2013

We are only 7 days into March and I am hearing from clients “I am Stuck!” so what is it about March that is bringing to the fore the feeling of being stuck? The numbers for March 2013 are 3 plus 20 plus 13 which give a total of 9.  The interesting thing about nine is despite the fact that I am not a nine, many of my birth family have nine in their birth numbers and probably 95% of my clients also.

The essence of nine is feeling stuck and not really knowing why or how to get past being stuck.  Nines tend to have issues with authority.  A favourite stance of a Nine is “it’s may way or the highway”.  This doesn’t mean that they are necessarily rebels, but unless what you are saying to them suits their world view or they have a lot of respect for you they will tune out.  Last month was very much looking at authority in the world and connecting with your own inner authority.  This month brings to the fore the consequences of deciding not to listen no matter what.

The reasons those with nine energy have come to this position is of course varied, however there is a really good archetypal story from the bible that kind of explains how the soul concerned came to their present state.  It is the story of Jobe.  Jobe was a wealthy merchant.  Jobe had many wives, children and all the trappings of success.  One day for no apparent reason it all went pear shaped and he lost everything.  Jobe cried out to god, why have you done this to me I have been your loyal and righteous servant.  God’s reply was the pot cannot tell the potter what to do.  Now as you can imagine this kind of upset Jobe because he was trying to do everything right and yet everything still went wrong.  My understanding of Nine’s is that they have somewhere in their past been like Jobe, the model citizen doing everything that was asked of them, doing everything right and it all went pear shaped.   As a consequence they turned their back on authority and decided to go their own way.  Whilst in the particular lifetime it may have been a spiritual or outer authority that aggrieved them in practical terms it means that they turned their back on their own inner spiritual authority as well.

Once we turn our back on our own inner authority and decide that it is my way or the highway we become stuck.  It is through our inner authority that we receive guidance and access to our past wisdom.  As I said last month in The Soul Essence of February authority does not have to be obeyed.  It is still an individual’s right to choose freely to listen and be guided or not.  Just as always listening to others can get us into trouble, obviously so can never listening to others.  But the core theme here is whatever we do, we must be responsible for our actions irrespective of who directed us.

Aura-soma Bottle 9 Bottle 9 turquoise over green. Bottle 9 is called the Crystal Heart within the Heart. Its primary focus is transcendence of the heart.  Having a heart that is capable of expressing more than your own petty individual loves and concerns.  This bottle is also linked with Atlantean times.   Nines often pride themselves on having found the way or doing the right thing.  History regarding Atlantis  tells us how deluded they really were in their “rightness”.   Bottle 9 encourages us to finding our way through the mire of jealousy and envy that cause us to want the possessions or experiences that another has.  Perhaps even feeling it is unjust that they have and you do not.  Guilt can also creep in here in terms of you having anything at all. Which gets us back to what I was saying above, we cannot blame another for what we do or have, in the end there is no universal right only tendencies and what is right for you may not be right for another.  If there is no right or wrong there cannot be guilt and therefore there cannot be punishment only consequences.

Aura-Soma Bottle 3 energy healer australiaThe other number in March is of course 3.  Bottle 3, blue over green is very similar to Bottle 9 except there is less yellow in the top fraction.  Bottle 3 is called the Atlantean Bottle.  People with a major three influence are usually emotionally immature.  I don’t mean that they are more childlike than most as the majority of humanity has not grown up emotionally.  Threes usually have resisted going through the tough stuff of life which builds emotional strength and maturity.  If life presents an opportunity for you to grow and you refuse to take it you will become stuck, just as surely as if you sit at the side of the road and refuse to walk.  If you spend your time blaming another authority for your experience you never fully move through the experience and garnish the mental and emotional growth to your soul.

So March in a nutshell – Also don’t waste your time of brooding over what you don’t have or what others have.  Give thanks for what you do have and improve upon that.  Notice the opportunities that are before you.  Seize the day, learn and grow.  Personal growth is a process of personal change and life provides the best opportunities for change.  Change is the spice of life.  Personal growth is nourishment for your soul.

The Soul Essence of February 2013

OMG is February 12 and I am only just writing the Soul of February.  I have tried on many occasions to sit and write, but the energy of February has been very illusive for me until yesterday.  I was working with a client, when it suddenly crystallized for me.

So here we go; firstly here is a brief outline of the bottles involved for February.  The numbers of February 2013 are 2 plus 20 plus 13 which gives a total of 8.  As 20 breaks down to 2 we have double 2 going on in February.  As I have discussed 20/2 and 13/4 in my previous post The Soul Essence of 2013 I will not go into them again here.  But I will discuss bottle 2 in more detail and why it has been so trick some to understand the energies of February 2013.

Peace on Every LevelThe basic energy of Bottle 2, blue over blue is peace on every level.  Bottle 2 also embodies the energy of our struggle with authority.  Our first authorities were our parents.  If you have problems with authority, your unconscious mind will reproduce this experience in many different areas of your life.  We cannot have peace whilst we are still struggling with corrupt authority or uncaring institutions. The secret is to understand that we cannot change them from the outside; we must change them from within each and every one of us.  Peace on every level means within all the layers of our mind, body and soul.  Bottle 2 challenges us to become our own inner authority.  Now you have heard me say this before this is nothing new, but the twist to February is that it also embodies it’s seeming opposite, bottle 50 pale blue over pale blue.

Let Go, Let Go,Bottle 50 is called El Morya, the essence of this bottle is “Thy will, not my will”.  or put it another way Let Go! I personally spent well over a month several years ago learning this lesson. Now this may sound contradictory with what I have said above about becoming your own inner authority. However let me explain.  We are currently in an information era where knowledge is power.  Therefore, there is an emphasis on education and information.  Before the advent of the internet and our communication technology, knowledge and information were in the hands of the minority.  The minority were also the authorities in our society.   In the past we have listened to and held in high esteem those with knowledge.  With the internet you can just about find out anything.  As a result there are lots of competing ideals of right and wrong as well as many different theories of how to do this or that.  We all have the capacity to gain knowledge and become our own authority based on our personal knowledge and information.

This is great, however the shadow side of this is, we can become so puffed up with our own sense of “I know everything” and can therefore do everything.  Therefore we are unwilling to listen to an individual whose knowledge and experience may be greater than our own in a particular area. Simply, we often no longer have respect for the knowledge and experience of another.  Battles are often fort over “my knowledge and authority is greater than yours”. For example you may participate in a weekend course in Reiki and come away from that course believing that you now have all that you need to be an expert healer.  Or you could spend 4 years completing a psychology degree and believe this knowledge now makes you an expert on the human psyche.  This is just not so; information and knowledge does not guarantee that you now know everything there is to know about a particular area. A little bit of knowledge about something or about many things does not make you an expert.  Sometimes our egos can become so enamored with the things that we do know we think we are an expert.  We erroneously believe that we are now the absolute authority. The acquisition of some knowledge does not guarantee that we know how to interpret or utilize the knowledge.  The acquisition of some knowledge can make us unwilling to be open to further or different knowledge.

So how is the concept of “Thy will, not my will” applicable here?  It is about balance, it is about having the humility to understand that we do not know everything.   Acknowledgement of the fact that a little bit of information does not guarantee that we will always know what to do. Many adults are stuck in teenage rebellion – I know everything and you (their parents) know nothing.  Balance requires us to be open to listen and learn from others.  This does not mean that you give away your power of self volition and worship them as the knower of all things.  I wholeheartedly encourage you to move away from this way of thinking.  But be careful not to jump the other polarity which is I know everything and therefore will not listen to others.  This concept is true on a material physical everyday life point of view as well as from a spiritual point of view.

Let Go! Let Go!The numbers of February 2013 add to eight.  This bottle is called Anubis, yellow over blue.  I have discussed the meaning of bottle 8 in previous posts so I am not going to go into it again in great depth.  But it is important remember that this bottle embodies discernment and access to wisdom through inner communications.  The importance of this in February 2013 is that all that I have said above about knowledge and information.  The majority of this knowledge and information comes from the ego self, the most limited aspect of our psyche.  Bottle 8 calls us to filter and discern the information and knowledge presented to us and get in touch with our own deeper authority, our own deeper wisdom.  Some call this their higher self.  However, I am not advocating handing over all of your free will to this higher inner power or outer power as the phrase “Thy will, not my will” may suggest.  Eventually the ego finally gains enough wisdom in itself to know when to listen and when to go its own way.  As children we never always listen because we often have to learn by doing it our way.  For me there are two major lessons embodied in the essence of February 2013.  The first; understand that you do have free will to do as you choose, but you can cannot blame anyone or any authority for your decisions.  The second; be humble enough to listen and to learn from inner and outer knowledge and authority.  However, seek to filter and discern so that you may obtain wisdom and not just knowledge.

Well there are only a few weeks left in February 2013, make it a great month, seek to obtain the most value and wisdom that you possibly can.  Spend time connecting with your inner self to facilitate discernment and wisdom.

The ultimate wisdom in many ways is – Know what you can do and what you cannot.  Let go of what you cannot!

The Soul of 2013


20 can be broken down to 2, which is Bottle 2 blue over blue – peace on every level.  Which of course is the same as last year but it bears repeating. The only way I know to create peace on planet earth is for each and every one of us to find peace within ourselves.  We all need to find the love an acceptance that comes from within.  Unfortunately we are taught from the time we leave the womb that we must seek love outside of ourselves. When we cannot find a satisfactory source many turn to drugs, prescribed or “recreational”, alcohol or the endless pursuit of things and people to make us happy.

bottle2Bottle 2 also embodies the energy of our struggle with authority.  Our first authorities were our parents.  If you have problems with authority, your unconscious mind will reproduce this experience in many different areas of your life.  We cannot have peace whilst we are still struggling with corrupt authority or uncaring institutions. The secret is to understand that we cannot change them from the outside; we must change them from within each and every one of us.  Peace on every level means within all the layers of our mind, body and soul.  Bottle 2 challenges us to become our own inner authority, which does not mean that we never listen to others or that we believe that we know everything.  But our own inner balanced authority that is based in unconditional love can be our guide.  Our inner authority is primarily for us and us alone, it should not be used to enslave others to our ways, a balanced inner authority naturally acknowledges and respects the inner authority of others.  An inner authority that suggests or demands dominion over others is corrupt. It is an honour and a privilege to have others listen to your inner wisdom and guidance not a right bestowed by virtue of social role, gender or age.

bottle13Bottle 13 is clear over green and is called The Change in the New Aeon. This bottle specifically contains the energies and frequencies of the New Aeon.  The clear in the top fraction allow light and awareness to flow into our hearts and is also allow the flow of love from our hearts.  However, none of this is necessarily going to happen magically without any effort on our behalves.  We all need to take a long hard look at our current life circumstances, the way we live our lives and the relationships we keep.  Bottle 13 asks us clearly to be prepared to face change and therefore an ending to some things. As a society we don’t do endings very well either personally or collectively.

However, endings always bring new beginnings.  This sounds wonderful for some, but there are those who are terrified of change and would prefer to keep doing what they are doing because it is comfortable.  A good way to look at it is this; last year the change was coming and you could get ready for it, now change is here on your doorstep. You may just find yourself ejected forcibly out of your comfort zone this year.   Bottle 13 brings with it the possibility of more than just change but complete metamorphosis.  The green in the lower fraction contains both blue and yellow.  The blue can support and calm and the yellow can bring great joy as you go through change.  Or yellow can also bring out our deepest fears.

bottle4Thirteen adds to 4 and bottle 4 is yellow over gold the Sunlight Bottle. Bottle 4 encourages us towards intellectual pursuits.  Interestingly enough the Chinese New Year is the Year of the Snake and it is said that snake energy is also about intellectual pursuits.  However, bottle 4 is not just about knowledge and intellectualism it is about reconnecting with our ancient wisdoms.  This is likely to mean that each of us will have the opportunity to reconnect with the wisdom and knowledge that we have accumulated on our soul journey.  This in itself will bring a great sense of security and relief to many.  Wisdom and knowledge of this kind is not used to dominate others, instead it is used for the betterment of all.  Our individual wisdom and skills are our gift to the world.    Like bottle 2, bottle 4 also carries within its frequency our wounding from being caught up in the worship of gold and the Sun.

bottle620 plus 13 adds up to Bottle 6 red over red.  It is going to be an extremely intense and energized year.  Red is the basic colour of love, vitality, energy and it is also the colour of warning.  During the coming year many will have increased vitality and energy to carry out the projects they desire.  It is also likely that more and more people will start to get an inkling of their inner voice.  Those who are already well aware of their intuition and psychic abilities may find that their skill increases exponentially.  The downside of red is of course the warning aspect.  Red can facilitate seeing red, rage and actions that are not well thought out.  Too much red can make people manic resulting in an inability to settle or sleep.  Those of you who are sitting on a powder keg of suppressed rage may find that they can no longer suppress it.

The increased vitality that red brings will mean that everything will speed up, it also means that whatever we are hiding is likely to come to the surface whether you are ready or not. Think of a huge flood of water racing down a riverbed that has been clogged from draught.  The forcefulness of red can also be the impetuous for bringing about enormous change, as when we are hot headed we are far less likely to put up with the things that irritate us.  Society is more likely to start collectively saying no to local and global injustices. We will need to make sure that we act out of love, rather than become a lynch mob.

If you have been steadily working on your own personal development over the years the increased vitality will just flow through you and bring about a greater capacity for fulfilment in your life.  If on the other hand your energy channels are clogged with unfinished mental, emotional or spiritual issues you may find it an interesting ride, like being on a runaway train.

I feel very positive about the coming year, change is here and will continue to occur.  It is going to be a year to remember. Enjoy the ride whether you are in the flow or are one of the dare devils on the runaway train.

coming up next January 2013 to kick of the new year…………

The Soul of January 2013

bottle1January is of course the first month of the year and therefore Bottle 1, blue over deep magenta.  Bottle 1 is a great kick off for the energies of 2013 because bottle 1 is called Physical Rescue.  The deep magenta in the lower fraction can contain our capacity to access the vibrant red energy.  However, it does require that we look at the things that hold us back.  What are we holding onto from the past? Do we harbour feels of guilt over past actions or maybe we feel unworthy of an easier life.  As you return to work and “normal” life after all the festivities and holidays, try to start afresh. Try to release all of your attachments to the past and move forward into new energies.  If you do not know how to effectively and permanently release your past then I can help you.

AuraSoma bottle7Add one to the total of 2013 and we get Bottle 7.  The Garden of Gethsemene bottle.  Bottle 7 is about trusting in the flow of life and trusting in your own wisdom.  So right from the beginning the first two bottles of the year are calling to you to participate in the energies of 2013.  Try to spend time contemplating your navel, get in touch with what is really going on inside of you.  The good the bad and the ugly!  Time to release what no longer serves you and step into the flow of the new energies of 2013.

Have a great month everyone.

December 2012; End of an Era

I remember the year 2000 with all the hype as we turned over a new century. I also remember at this point thinking only 12 more years to 2012 and the end of an era for Planet Earth.   Back then 12 years away seemed a long time and yet here we now are.  December is also the last month in the Gregorian calendar and so it is the end of our year.  Yesterday on Face Book I saw a post on my feed; 12/12/12 the last time some of us currently alive will ever see a date with triple numbers.   So from many perspectives December 2012 is an ending.  In the continuum of life, endings are of course, also the stage before new beginnings, new opportunities and new energy.

So what does the energies of December 2012 have to offer us all as we go about preparing for year’s end.  December brings into focus the energy of 12 which adds to a three.  This energy has been the backdrop for the whole of 2012.  We will repeatedly experience intense three energy throughout the month of December.  We already had a hit on 3/12/12 (3/3/3) and we will experience this again on 12/12/12 (3/3/3); 21/12/12 (3/3/3) and on 30/12/12 (3/3/3).  Triple threes add to nine, the number of among other things “I am not listening. Talk to the hand”.  It is up to you whether you listen to yourself and what you are trying to tell yourself on these days or not.

bottle3In the Aura-Soma system bottle 3 is called the Atlantean and Heart Bottle.  Atlantean times are of course part of our mythical history.  Atlantis was the time period that marked the last time the Planet went through a change cycle.  For many spiritually inclined December is bringing up deeply held memories of the last time humanity went through a major transition. The energy of three takes us back to our roots not just our ancestral and spiritual roots but also our early childhood roots.  The problem for most in accessing this information is that it does not necessarily come as a vision or words or even an identifiable emotion.  Bottle 3 is the energy of feeling and emotions are just one of the things we can feel.  Most of our emotional patterns are based upon what we feel or don’t feel or more to the point once felt.  Many would rather not feel at all, others feel totally overwhelmed by what they feel.

In our intellectually focused world many believe facts or beliefs are the ultimate truth but the reality is – our feelings are ultimate truth for us.  Most of us have experienced the battle of dominance between their head and their heart.  Whether our feelings are accurate is another thing entirely.  Take the example of how many women believe that they fat based upon the fact that they feel fat.  Are they actually fat? In many cases they are not, but there is no way to convince them otherwise, their feeling is irrefutable evidence to them.  Unfortunately, most of us are driven to do, to have, to behave or whatever else based on the way we feel or how we feel the particular item or person will make us feel.  We go for certain foods based on how they make us feel.  Problem is no amount of food can replace the feel good feelings that we can generate from within ourselves. Smart marketing has always appealed to our feelings or sensory self.

December will be calling us to feel and hopefully for many of you it will be an opportunity to examine your feelings in much the same way you would a thought or belief.  Does this feeling actually serve me?  How am I living out emotional and feeling patterns from my babyhood? For example if you feel betrayed, when was the first time you felt betrayed? Are you now re-living that feeling memory over and over?  In reality once a feeling reality has been experience we tend to re-create that feeling experience over and over.  If you felt unloved as a child, chances are you will still feel unloved now no matter what anyone else does or says. This will also be the case no matter how much you try to convince yourself that you know that someone loves you.  Feelings are our ultimate truth.  We all must be responsible for clearing out the feelings that no longer serve us.  Then we can come into a new way of feeling, a way that enables us to truly nurture ourselves and others.  If you are like most you have no idea how to do this.  I can of course help!

bottle008If we add up the numbers for December 2012 – 12 + 20 + 12 we end with number 8.  In Aura-Soma bottle 8 is called Anubis.  I have spoken about Anubis before back in August.  Anubis was an Egyptian Deity who was responsible for protection of those who had passed over into the otherworld. Anubis was the Deity who help souls cross over from an ending to a new beginning, very pertinent for December 2012 don’t you think?  Anubis was also the Deity who measured your heart to discern the value of your life and the weight of your heart.  The energy of Bottle 8 will help you get to heart of the issues that arise from feeling. Our heart has always been associated with our feelings. During December take the opportunity to discern what is really going on, seeing the truth of one’s own heart and the heart of others.

Finally, December is traditionally considered the season for giving.  Try to dig deep inside and give from within, give from your genuine feelings rather than giving an object that is designed to produce a feeling.  Try not to be so overcome with the silly season of rushing around; caught up in the feelings of frenzied buying. Spend some time to discover how you are really feeling.  The flip side of Bottle 8 is a lack of joy even though your life is going well according to social parameters.

I wish you all a fabulous December and year’s end. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of those who have eagerly waited for my ramblings each month.  Your support has been greatly appreciated.  I hope that 2013 brings many new beginnings and opportunities.

For those of you who are interested the 21/12/12 is the most accepted date for the actual end of the Mayan Calender and therefore the end of our current planetary cycle.


The Soul of November 2012

The Soul of November 2012

November the last month of spring and here in Adelaide the weather has been very topsy turvy.  We however have not had the disastrous weather that the east coast of America has experienced. November is my birth month and as such is always the beginning of a new cycle. It is also the last month of the year before the silly season really ramps up.  So let’s see what November 2012 has in store, we have 11 plus 20 plus 12 which equals 7.  If you would like to look at the energies of 20 and 12 please check back on my previous posts as these have been constant all year.

Bottle 11 clear over pink is called the Essence Bottle, the catch phrase for this bottle is: “When all else has failed or does not work use bottle 11.” It’s kind of funny when you think many people come to me for help when they are in this exact predicament.   Pink of course calls you back to love and in this particular case love of your soul.  There is always lots of talk about Love from the ‘positive talk community’, everything is love and beautiful.  Love is not only about the good times, it is also about the expression of love and compassion during the difficult times.  From a personal level “can you still love yourself when you act in a certain ways?”  Do you worry about “Will others still love me if they really knew who I was?” These are the questions that plague us all.  Most suffer enormous doubt about whether the answer to these questions will be a resounding YES!  But how many people do you know that truly love themselves and everything about themselves?  The clear in the top fraction of bottle 11 allows the love to flow through.  Sometimes it all becomes too much and we decide i­­t would be easier to shut our hearts down and no longer feel the pain and fear.  In the end this place becomes infinitely worse than what we were running from.  Self doubt about our security and place in love is the greatest inner demon that we all need to face.  Doubt and fear destroys faith and belief in ourselves and November 2012 is primarily about the test of faith in oneself.

Bottle 7 in the Aura-Soma system is yellow over green and it is called the Garden of Gethsemanes.  Now if we take that theme out of the religious setting bottle 7 is about the test of faith.  This is not a test of faith in anything outside of ourselves; it is the test of faith in ourselves.  Can we do this?  Can we survive and thrive?  Will it all be okay?  The test of faith is in whether we believe and feel that we will endure and be okay.  Even when disaster strikes our lives or things are not going as we would want.  In the Americas this is exactly what they are going through.  For all of us as we stress about our relationships or our financial situations our stress is driven by our fear that we will not be okay.  Without going all biblical on you, there is a phrase in the bible that states something like this “if you had a tiny drop of faith you could shift mountains”.  Faith and belief is the energy that makes all of the techniques covered in The Secret and many other self-help modalities work or not.  Unfortunately most have stronger negative beliefs and faith driven by fear than they do positive.  Bottle 7 has a lot of yellow and you may remember from last month I talked about yellow is either great joy or great fear.    Each and every one of us must decide whether we are going to have faith in something or someone outside of themselves or whether we dare to find the courage and faith from within.  This is a scary place for many because they do not have the faith in themselves.  Most do not believe that they will be enough, that they will be okay.  But more than that, we worry that we will not thrive when life throws us a curve ball.   This leaves us all with a deeply rooted sense of powerlessness and we certainly cannot move mountains in this state. It is these deeply seated fears that we must all take responsibility for removing.  Strength of spirit comes from the investment of time and effort just the same as strength of muscles. I would love to be able to help you achieve strength of spirit and a strong faith and belief in yourself and your true potential.   You must take the first step.

Have fun during November, stretch your limits, and discover what you are truly capable of!
