When Magik and Miracles are mentioned our faces light up; we instantly think of magicians or divine intervention, both seemingly an illusion. But how much is actually an illusion and do we have any control at all over the outcomes? What if we could create our own magik? What if we could bring about our own miracles?
We are often quick to give in to a negative mindset, you know the one that tells us that ‘we are always unlucky’ or ‘it never happens for me’. What if we were able to switch that mindset from stagnant to growth and start becoming lucky, and enjoying new experiences that seemed out of reach before. It’s easier than you think; and you need one little ingredient – BELIEF.
Sounds too easy you say? We adults are the kings and queens of overanalysing, overcomplicating and overthinking. We train ourselves to look for the trickery, the illusion, the negative in amongst the positive. Let’s look at our childhoods though, most of us loved magicians, there was no illusion, we believed that it really was magik. And it was nothing short of a miracle that his assistant was not cut in half!! Further examples – Santa and The Easter Bunny – the magik they brought into our lives for those few short years until someone (uncompassionate) ruined our lives forever. Our belief changed, our perception changed and in an instant our ideas of magik were gone. Cue the beginning of our association that all good things have a trickery or negative attached. It’s connected, trust me. One year you are excitedly looking for a fat guy stuck in your chimney, the next year the magik is gone, the miracle of Christmas is destroyed. And you have set a subconscious mind pattern for adulthood of waiting for the negative to destroy your positive.
Now I’m not saying that we should all band together and manifest Santa or any other childhood love we had, but I am saying that the magik was there until our perception changed. Perceptions are our reality. There are multiple realities and we have choices to live in whichever manner we excel in. Change your perception, and you will change your reality.
My clients come to me at varying stages of their lives. Some broken from years of abuse, others so consumed by anger they are afraid of who they have become. Then there are those who just cry our entire session, and apologise all the while for their long awaited release. The most heartbreaking for me are those who are numb; the souls who have almost resigned themselves to accepting that this is their life; this is as good as it gets.
I’ve lost track of the number of clients who become Chatty-Kathy when they sit with me. I always giggle when they realise that they have talked non-stop for however long they need. Everyone always says, “I’m not normally so open/chatty/talkative”. And most of the time, they also add ‘I don’t know what’s wrong with me’. In the 25 + years of partnering with clients, I’ve learned that your soul knows that when you sit with me you have unconditional permission to let it all out.
I have the honour of listening to you share your hardest moments, the times that you have felt so defeated, so broken that you considered checking out from Earth. It’s in these absolute wrecked moments that I see the beauty in every single person that comes my way. I catch a glimpse of your soul and then I get my spirit posse involved.
My spirit posse and I work on unlocking the cycles you have present in your current life. We dig deep into your soul and work out why it is you experience the things you do; what we can do about this, and how we can create better mechanisms for coping moving forward. Essentially, we wipe your self-limiting beliefs and replace them with methodologies that create opportunities for empowerment. Intent + Action = Results.
If you are up to your neck in quicksand, your life looks like a horror flick and you are a magnet for fertiliser; you need an overhaul. It isn’t hard, but you do need to be committed to working on your best version. I’m the Guide, I know the shortcuts, I know the tour you should be on BUT the success is always on you.
I spent a number of very early years thinking about this very topic. Trying to crack that code, analysing, researching, understanding and I’ve lost count with the number of rabbit holes I went down in search of ‘The Secret Of Life’ (you really need to say that in an epic voice).
Over my years of tapping into the spirit realm as a psychic medium, I have been privy to some of the most deliciously wonderful conversations with spirit. I have asked spirit directly how I can shift from having a Groundhog Day existence to having a mind-blowing, fun filled experience on the earthly plane. I can tell you now; it isn’t wealth, health or academic prowess. In fact it is not even the top 10 things you might think it is.
I have had a rollercoaster of a life, what can I say; I love adventure! I’m certainly no stranger to ups, downs, twists and turns and up the creek moments. Yet, here I am, sitting peacefully in my office overlooking a beautiful lawn, writing, smiling from ear to ear, heart filled to the brim with gratitude.
The Secret of Life is perception. When it dawned on me that I might actually be in charge of my own thoughts, I was in that mindset of I know, I know. How many times do we catch ourselves already knowing what our ears are now hearing from others? How many times has a friend offered advice and you’ve replied I know, I know! We all do this. At our soul level, our highest self, we actually do know; but knowing and not doing is what keeps us in that safe place of non-growth. Without growth, our perception will not change.
Our perception creates our reality. If you perceive that life is a giant lemon designed specifically for the purposes of making you sour – This is your reality.
If you perceive that life is an amazing journey – this is your reality.
Perception is a lifetime of conditioning, habits, experiences and continual looping of our subconscious tape. Perception is designed to keep us safe from often over dramatized dangers. So how do you shift your perception? The greatest gift you can give yourself is the gift of growth. To understand the very reasons why you react the way you do is the easiest road to receiving life’s greatest gifts.
