Moving from Duality to Unity

Are you feeling comfortable with the way reality is unfolding? Do you question whether you have any influence or control over things anymore? I’ve been reflecting on the current global situation and these reflections are connected with what I see happening in my own country. These are not easy times. These are rapidly changing times with no guarantees of certainty around anything, except the possibility of further changes and disruptions. Normalcy no longer exists. Yet, what can be done to support constructive changes? How can you and I in any way influence the outcomes that are still to manifest into reality?

The words ‘unity’ and ‘duality’ keep popping into mind. This I find tantalizing. What do they convey and how are they relevant to current issues?

When I reflect on the word ‘duality’ I observe that our co-created existence has its roots and basis in this construct, in all areas of life. Duality exists in politics, religion, business, competition, sports, race, ageism, sexism etc. Duality permeates every area of life and it seeps into and becomes embedded into language, everyday functioning, rules and regulations that are administered. Duality is what you are born into and it’s so entrenched that it becomes an unconscious mechanism for how life is lived. Beliefs are shaped by life experiences, just as fears are shaped by perceptions, beliefs and experiences. Duality has led to, and perpetuates the idea of differences and separation.

I’m summarizing this very briefly, hoping to stir your memories where you’ve witnessed or even experienced a Them versus Us situation or system. My understanding is that this division in perception and beliefs become habits that are fully embedded within societal functioning, thereby furthering the sense of alienation and separation. Your understanding and perceptions around this duality that’s been co-created is that possibly this is how things are meant to be. In fact, I’d suggest that the normalization of duality throughout countless facets of our culture has been highly successful.

Will duality improve, enhance, support each and every member of society? Will it ensure an equal and harmonious quality of life? Or will the perceived differences between Them and Us fester and strengthen, resulting in continued conflict, anger, judgment, mistrust etc?

As my musings have gone down this path I’ve come to the conclusion that a co-created duality culture is damaging to such a degree that the only option left is, as a culture, to begin formulating strategies and ways of creating unity in everyday life. In other words, it’s up to you and I and all people interested in creating a new, healthier reality.

All change begins from within. Gandhi said words to the effect, “You must be the change you wish for”. What does this mean? And how can this shift within manifest significantly to create unity changes through all layers of society?

How you choose to work in unity, rather than duality, is your responsibility. Your implementation of living in unity with others may differ from how another person chooses to do it. However, I firmly believe that shifting from a Them and Us judgmental and intolerant perspective to a We perspective is the beginning of creating a real change in the world.

Adhering to the meaning of the Gandhi statement I’ve been observing my responses to what I hear, witness and understand from the world around me. Through a process of mindfulness I’m finding that my language is changing. Words are powerful, they hold energy. Emotions are powerful and also hold energy. Words/thoughts combined with action are even more potent.

My process for this has been influenced by the conversations I have with my youngest son. He’s intelligent and articulate and often we engage in what would appear to be disagreements on issues such as politics, religion, economy etc. Ironically it soon became apparent that we were often of a similar mindset, we simply approached our understanding and experiences from a different perspective. These lively discussions have enabled me to open my eyes further, in terms of understanding and acceptance. Giving credit and acknowledgement has become an important ingredient in conversations. In many instances my children have become my teachers due to their sharing and wisdom.

A repeated statement, We’re  all in this together, has become the slogan for the Covid health issue in Australia. When I reflect on this statement there’s a much broader implication and application. Nowadays my understanding of this is that there’s no such thing as separation. “You hold a perception, I hold a perception so let’s talk about it.” In other words, what are the commonalities? How is it possible to allay fears and garner strength? What can I share and learn from you, and you from me? How can we reconcile and accept differences, and work with them to create bridges to understanding?

Listening, reflecting and a willingness to accept different perspectives without judgment is an indication of maturity. It’s what happens when the changes within deepen and emerge to embrace a new understanding of unity and oneness.

There are many steps to this process of shifting from duality to unity. Working with the power of language is only one aspect of the process. Developing empathy supports the process. Willingness to let go of dated beliefs and to embrace new perspectives helps. Listening instead of wanting to be heard all the time develops understanding. Attempting to view the world through the eyes of another person’s experiences may provide new insights. Caring and sharing as often as possible enhances the unity process.

I feel strongly that if there’s anything that can help change the uncertainty and fear in the world then the practice of developing Unity is important. The long held deeply entrenched constructs of separation, duality and differences must, in some way, be minimized and ultimately removed from our culture. We’re all in this together, and it’s up to us to make a massive difference in the world.

What are your thoughts on this subject? Is it possible to shift the focus from duality to unity, from separation to oneness? What techniques and strategies can be developed? How can each person make a difference? What is the long term potential for manifesting such a shift?

These are some of the many questions that can be asked of everyone. I used to believe that one person could not make a difference in the world. Now I see it’s possible. Planting a seed of possibility has the potential to manifest life changing realities. So I ask you to consider the ways in which you are able to contribute to shifting the focus from duality to unity? Every small contribution (words, thoughts, actions) adds to the energy of creating constructive, beneficial shifts.

Take a Quantum Leap and Let Go

Hi Everyone

I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear – M.L. King

What a start it’s been to the New Year and new decade. Natural disasters – fires, floods, volcanic eruptions and earthquakes in addition to civil unrest worldwide. It certainly seems grim and disastrous, if that is how you view it. It’s not my intention to focus on what we perceive as catastrophes. Instead it’s time to focus on how it’s possible to avoid getting caught up in the maelstrom of fear, anger and frustration. I don’t have all the answers, though I certainly have some insights for surviving the changing times.

The planet and humanity are on the verge of a new horizon, one vastly different to what we’ve become accustomed to. By this I mean that our global systems are inefficient and broken. They lack resonance and harmony with the awakening consciousness that is occurring globally. This means that change, whether welcome or not, is upon us.

On January 12 Australia’s prominent monolith Uluru was activated. The indigenous Australians have been awaiting this event and great spiritual energy was invoked. This activation is significant because Uluru is the sacral chakra of Gaia. The activation, still strengthening, is now travelling from east to west globally connecting with and activating all other chakra centres on the planet. Whether you feel this energy or not is irrelevant because on the subtle levels it will have a beneficial impact.

A wise young Australian pointed out a coincidence that’s worthy of reflection. She saw a correlation between the civil unrest, protests globally and the increase in earth disasters such as the unexpected earthquakes, flooding etc. Now, that may sound like an unlikely jump in reasoning. Yet if you study the meteorology charts it seems as if there’s been a spike in earth disasters in the past year. Her suggestion is valid that we stop focusing on what’s wrong, we stop judging and being angry.

Instead it’s time to go deeper within. This means healing the inner pain – the hurt, the trauma, fears of rejection or whatever may be restricting personal growth. The current time is about developing self love, community spirit and gratitude. There are so many practices that support the journey to self love and acceptance.

A well known shaman saying is pertinent right now – Energy flows where attention goes. Where is your energy flowing? What are you focusing on?

A quote by Abraham sums up aptly how this works. “You will notice that those who speak of prosperity have it. Those who speak most of health, have it. Those who speak most of sickness, have it. Those who speak most of poverty, have it. It is Law. It can be no other way….”

Where are your thoughts largely going? Are you creating a life of abundance, filled with peace and joy, or is it largely filled with discontent? I cannot answer these questions, as your desires and intentions are unique to you. What I can share with certainty is that continually giving gratitude and seeing the best in everyone is one way of shifting life from pain and drama into one of greater ease and comfort. It may take a lot of effort and time to get to that space of being the observer and not having a strong emotional response. However, it’s well worth the effort because life does become more comfortable within the space of a month or two.

Where you place your energy right now is of paramount importance. The cosmic energies combined with Gaia’s energy shift are supporting this change. This means that there’s greater ease and support for shifting into global peace and harmony.

Finally, I’d like to finish off with something my non-physical friends shared about twenty years ago. At that stage I was reflecting on the conflict and disharmony occurring globally. I heard these words clearly: “How can there be world peace when there is no peace in the hearts of humanity?”

Love and joy


2019 – New Year, New Energies

Hi Everyone

It feels as though I’m finally coming out of my self-imposed semi-retirement. It’s definitely been a long time since I deeply felt the urge to get back into the fray on more than a part-time basis. When I reflect on the past five to six years it’s apparent that I’ve truly needed this time ‘out’. It’s been a wonderful opportunity to simply try my hand at different things, to explore opportunities other than continuing on, doing what I’ve been doing almost non-stop since I commenced working full time in my particular speciality twenty years ago.

In many ways these past few years have felt aimless and uncertain. Many a time I’ve felt as though maybe it was time to once again become intent and serious about working full time. Yet every time that urge surfaced it disappeared just as quickly, often leaving me feeling dissatisfied and confused. Now, finally, there’s certainty and surety as to direction and purpose.

The reason I’m sharing this particular bit of personal information is because I’m not the only one who’s been uncertain, who’s had to deal with stops and starts in life and business direction and has experienced real confusion. But, the good news is that this is the year for clarity, purpose, direction and motivation to beckon and thrive.

2018 was a year of unrest, uncertainty and turmoil on every level. By this I mean it was a wonderful, yet distressing year worldwide. It was a year of purging old energies. It was a year of confronting fears and demons. Witnessing and experiencing the many facets of hatred, pain, violence, anger and uncertainty was something that as a collective we needed to experience.

2019 promises so much more. If you’ve been following the astrology indications for 2019 you’ll know that we’re in for more upheaval for part of the year, but that ultimately there’s the potential for massive positive changes. For many of us the veil has thinned significantly and intuitive abilities have become amplified. Others are finding greater clarity and strength in regards to purpose and direction. Some are finding that their inner pain is rapidly becoming a thing of the past as they’re connecting more easily with their heart center.

In some instances this year will be a year of significant change, in others not so much. It all depends on what your soul signed up for prior to embodiment. However, there are a few points I believe that need to be stressed for this year.

Right now is the time to Walk Your Talk. Whoever you are and whatever you are here to do this is truly the time to live that aspect of yourself to the fullest. Talk and share your knowing and truths. This is not the time to hide your light under a bushel or to pretend otherwise in order to fit in with others’ beliefs and perceptions. The mass awakening and shift in consciousness is happening rapidly. Your knowledge, skills and wisdom are definitely needed.

Let go of old beliefs, biases and anything that creates angst within you. 2018 was filled with criticism, judgment and anger with a great deal of vitriol expressed via social media. This is not an energy that is supported in 2019. Whatever you are still feeling in terms of intolerance, hatred etc will rebound and you’ll feel the brunt of your own emotions and words come back like a boomerang. Right now a healthy motto would be Live and Let Live.

If you have not yet figured out your purpose then don’t fret. When the time is right it will come to you. Instead allow life to flow through you. Find the magic and joy. Find inner peace and inner harmony. For some individuals 2019 is the year in which their sense of purpose strengthens, but it will only surface when the inner landscape is at peace.

Some individuals have a mission, and 2019 is the year when the energy supports this development. Mission is different to purpose. Every embodied soul has a purpose, whether that purpose be to learn, to understand love, to be creative. A mission is for the greater good of humanity. It exists outside an individual’s personal development and growth. 2019 holds an energy that magnifies intention. Make it work for you!

Finally, I’m often reminded of The Four Agreements (Don Miguel Ruiz), artfully expressed yet incredibly powerful. Simply remembering and applying them to all facets of your life will truly make a difference this year. They are:

  • Take nothing personally
  • Make no assumptions
  • Be impeccable with your word
  • Always do your very best

Love and bliss

The Three Cs In Life

“Three Cs in life: Choices, Chances and Change

You must make a choice to take a chance or life will never change”


Recently I made a major change in my life. It wasn’t made hurriedly. I had a choice. Stay in a city and state that has many great features or move interstate to a totally unfamiliar environment. I made the choice, took a chance and now love the changes. Having always lived in cool or cold weather climates I now live in a sub-tropical climate, closer to family. This move means making new friendships, charting a different course, taking risks and also having masses of trust that this is a worthwhile change.

Each day I marvel at the lushness of vegetation, relish the relative warmth of winter and am discovering a plethora of new adventures and opportunities. Best of all, it feels like I’ve finally found my tribe. It’s so easy to make friends and best of all I feel as though I’ve come home. Taking this gamble is already paying off in ways I’d never imagined possible.

Socrates is quoted as saying, “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new”. This is what my focus and intention are at the moment, while simultaneously feeling gratitude for whatever else has been experienced previously.

Nevertheless not all choices result in change that feels positive, healthy or uplifting. Since leaving New York in 2013 I’ve moved house seven times. Each time I’ve hoped and trusted that the move was the “right” move, and each time something just felt a tad off. Yet with each move there were accompanying experiences and opportunities for growth and learning – all of which have been profound and truly worthwhile, even though they didn’t always feel that way!

The biggest change of all, however, is my decision to once again immerse myself in the work I love doing and which I’ve neglected somewhat these past five years. Telling myself that it’s good to have a hiatus, to have time to explore other options and possibilities was necessary as the time away has truly shown me where my passion lies. Sometimes making a choice, taking a chance and experiencing change can provide an opportunity for revealing what has been taken for granted or has been overlooked. As yet I’m not sure just how my foray back into doing what I’ve done previously is going to look. Will I work the same way? Or will there be new and different approaches taken? Only time will tell.

As human beings we are capricious. We often focus on what is lacking rather than on what is right in front of us. This tendency provides plentiful opportunity for questioning, reflecting, analysing and understanding. I’ve used the five year hiatus to gain a stronger sense of my own value, to grow spiritually, further hone my skills and to also understand my insignificance in the bigger scheme of things.

Life is precious. Every moment offers opportunity for appreciation, growth, learning and more. Right now, from what I understand my astrology friends are saying, there are a lot of planets in retrograde. When combined with eclipses the cosmic energies don’t necessarily support us in forward movement. What, however, they do is provide an opportunity for inner growth, expansion and exploration.

Who are you? What are you here for? What choices and possibilities are available to you? What changes are desirable? How can you create desired change? And, what chances need to be taken? If you are in any way unhappy or dissatisfied with the way things are going then right now is a really good time to reflect, plan and begin creating the changes you desire. There’s a lot to be said for the well-known statement, “The longest journey begins with the smallest of steps.”  Only you can know what you need do in order to continue on this journey called life. It’s up to you to make the most of this journey, to make choices and take the chances that support you emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually.

And, remember, there are no right or wrong choices. Every choice offers opportunities for learning and growth in one way or another. Personally I prefer to think of them as ‘detours’, and some are pleasant while others are not so. Make the journey an adventure, view the positive experiences with joy, view the less than positive experiences for what they offer in terms of understanding. But ultimately, live with gratitude knowing you have options along with the power to manifest magnificently.



My latest book was released earlier this year, but not published under my name. My publisher insisted that I used a pen name. Some of you may be aware of this fact, others may not. However, I believe in transparency and happily admit that I’ve been blessed with countless weird, wonderful, out of this world experiences. It’s not easy feeling like the misfit, the person who doesn’t fit in, whose world view seems to be at odds with the general consensus. Yet, there are many people like myself who feel this way and if my story in any way helps even one person be true to who they are then I’ll have done my job.

The book is entitled A Square Peg: Conformity Isn’t An Option. Pen name is Gabriella Jaye. Published by Balboa Press and it’s available internationally at all good retail outlets and is also as an eBook. Check out the reviews on

I also started a blog to support the book’s release – – it’s still in its infancy, but hopefully it will also provide a forum for others to share their stories and experiences.

Make the Most of 2018

If you’re like me you’ll be glad to see the backside of 2017 and trusting that 2018 will herald positive changes and massive improvements. There is no doubt that the past twelve months have been challenging in so many ways. Globally, nationally, locally and personally – on every level there have been challenges, losses and uncertainty. Overall I’m not saying that everyone experienced something painful. However, gauging from reporting in the media and personal stories that have been recounted I get the distinct impression that 2017 was not one of the better years in recent history.

Allowing myself to become the observer I noticed that a lot of emotions surfaced, many of them fear based. Protests, intense anger, desolation, loss and more were all evident at different times during the year. I was able to reflect back to the information that I   channelled via the energy of Edgar Cayce some seven years ago. He shared that a process of deconstruction would happen. He further elaborated that this would break down systems, beliefs and anything that held old energies that were detrimental to the planet and humanity. This would be followed by reconstruction, a building of new systems that hold a higher consciousness. My thinking is that the deconstruction process was very evident last year.

I sense that 2018 will herald new growth and a continuation of the transformation in human consciousness. This transformation is very evident in many instances and heralds in the beginning of a new era on Earth. There is no doubt we still have quite a way to go but nevertheless the seeds of change have been planted and are germinating nicely. I feel that 2018 will be a year of more stability for those individuals who have undertaken the inner healing journey, who have let go of old, dated ideologies and who are supporting changes in creating a new, strong and healthy Earth.

Overall the process will take approximately a generation to be completed, but if you look closely you’ll observe the quiet signs of change happening. I find it evident in practically all conversations I have with total strangers. People are unaccepting of the status quo and are contributing in their own way to creating a safer, more balanced life for themselves, friends and families.

My personal mantras or guidelines for maintaining a relatively optimistic outlook include, but are not limited to:

Being the observer of situations, issues and events. This enables to you to question more deeply. What are the real issues? Who is responsible? Why is this happening? Insights and answers often pop up unexpectedly.

Observing without emotion or judgment. If there is an emotional reaction ask yourself, “What is within me that I need to heal?” or “What is triggering this response in me?”

Finding the positive, as much as possible in every situation. This is not always easy to do. However, remember that thoughts are powerful. What you focus on is what you get.

Knowing that nothing is permanent. Change happens all the time. Accept it and don’t fight it. Instead explore options and solutions when change impacts you strongly.

Loving and accepting who you are. This is probably one of the most difficult yet most important things you’ll ever do. Make 2018 the year in which you are your pet project. Inner work, self worth and acceptance create a positive vibe that in turn supports your life journey with greater ease and flow.

Make 2018 the best year yet. Follow your heart’s desires, trust your intuition, love and laugh like there’s no tomorrow.  

Love and joy



PERSONAL NOTE:  For a large part of 2017 I was figuratively chained to my computer, writing steadily and consistently. It was with huge relief that the final proofing and editing was completed on New Year’s Eve. I’ve signed with a publisher and hopefully the book will go into print sooner rather than later. Will keep you all posted closer to its release date!

Energy Flows Where Attention Goes

Energy Flows Where Attention Goes

How do you see yourself and the world at large at this point in time? Are you caught up in being right about a situation, having strong beliefs about how things should be? Or, are you finding fault about a lot of things that are happening in your community, country or globally? Do you blame others for the way things seem to be? Are you getting frustrated because there’s so much change happening and it’s unsettling, creating uncertainty? I could ask a lot more generic questions yet I suspect that on some level you’re beginning to understand what I’m attempting to say. 

Years ago I came across the above saying, “Energy Flows Where Attention Goes”, and learned that it was a Shaman saying. It’s only now as I observe the upheaval, chaos and uncertainty globally that I’m seeing the full truth behind this statement. 

Allow me to make some observations. It seems that there’s a lot of anger surfacing in the States since the November presidential election, and that this anger continues to fester. At first it appeared (via the reports shown here in Australia) that the anticipated winner’s loss upset her supporters. Since then however there seems to be growing anger and righteousness expressed by her supporters, along with increasing smear campaigns and a great deal of ‘fake news’ being reported. It’s gotten to the stage that it’s difficult, or even impossible, to know what is the truth. However, the energy of anger, resentment, frustration doesn’t seem to be abating and possibly now it’s feeding itself because it’s become so intense. 

In Australia, the anti-Muslim energy is growing with definite polarities becoming evident within society. The protester clashes are becoming more violent. In fact, there are more protests occurring over a number of political issues, with vitriol, anger and increasing calls to action by those venting their frustrations with systems that are failing.

Worldwide there is massive change occurring – Brexit being one example, another indication is the jailing of Iceland’s corrupt bankers and politicians resulting in its withdrawal from the International Monetary Fund, there are massive public protests and rallies occurring in countless countries including Indonesia, South Korea, the South American continent, and so on.

In other words there seems to be a massive call for change, for improvement in systems and living conditions. Yet I ask myself whether there’s any likelihood of real and lasting change when the energy of simmering rage, frustration and anger continues unabated. History has taught us that change from upheaval, coups and violence doesn’t work, it only produces more of the same in the long run. So, what are viable options for creating positive change?


Take Nothing Personally

Wow, now that’s a strong statement. How is it possible to take nothing personally when there are things taking place that are distasteful, wrong, and unlawful? Over 20 years ago I came across this wisdom and it’s been invaluable. When encountering something that is upsetting there are three possible options for dealing with that situation. If it’s none of your business then let it be; if it’s about you or affects you then it’s up to you to make changes, providing those changes are made in integrity; and if it’s up to someone else to fix then let them. 

Nowadays I recommend that thought processes include both love and compassion, many times daily. When a situation arises over which there is no personal control, but which exerts a negative response within, then sending love, compassion and healing to that person or situation is far more productive than holding onto anger or frustration. The benefits of large group meditation in changing an energy or situation have been well demonstrated time and again. Now, more than ever it’s important to let go of attachment or expectations around other people, circumstances and instead send the powerful healing vibration of love.

Let Go Of Ego

How much of the anger being expressed is ego feeding on the dramas? In his book, A New Earth by Eckhardt Tolle he explores the many facets of ego and it’s a must read book for everyone! Once you understand the extent to which responses and perceptions are governed by ego’s need for instability, drama and emotional dissatisfaction you’ll then begin to harness its damaging impact and begin to make subtle shifts in both perception and in how you deal with situations and issues.

It’s understandable that frustration and anger surface when situations become untenable. Yet, there are positive and healthy ways of channeling that anger so that it can become a constructive energy of change and growth. Abraham, channeled by Esther Hicks listed an emotional scale, with depression as the lowest of emotions and bliss as the highest and a whole range of other emotions between those two. Interestingly anger was listed as being just above depression and in the discourse Abraham indicated that anger, when used constructively can bring about positive changes.

Ego demands instant gratification, via outbursts, emotional upheaval and uncertainty, feelings of righteousness, and more. Instead of feeding this need it’s far healthier to engage in practices that foster problem solving, calmness, co-operation. Simple activities such as meditation, listening to gentle music, deep breathing and consciously letting go of ego’s demand for action allows you to be in the moment, to become appreciative and to express gratitude. 

Live in the Moment

Being fully present in the moment is a state that is often aspired to, but one which can be more challenging to maintain. Right now, due to the uncertainty and turmoil in the world, you have no choice but to focus your energy and attention to what is happening right now. Everything may change in a heartbeat, tomorrow is still a long time away. Being fully present in whatever you are doing enables you to fully embrace that experience, regardless of its significance or otherwise. Often the mindless moments are the most important. Simply appreciating nature or the feel of your breath or the wind in your hair can lift a mood into one of simply being one with all that is.

What can you do in the moment that can make a difference to your wellbeing and to that of others? Being fully present with whatever is occurring is a gift; it means that your mind, and possibly ego, are not focused elsewhere. You are directing energy consciously, rather than being distracted by all sorts of mental gymnastics where your mind imagines worst case scenarios.

Another significant benefit of living in the moment is that it has real health benefits. It’s well documented that thoughts and words have an energy impact. The research by Dr Emoto attests to the power of both positive and negative thoughts on frozen water molecules. As the human body is over 70% water it’s worthwhile reframing negative thoughts into positives at every opportunity because whatever you think has an impact. When being fully present in the moment there’s an added benefit as there’s less thinking and with that reduced stress on the body.

Everyone is a Mirror

The outer world is a reflection of the inner. The current worldwide unrest reflects the inner turmoil that’s within humanity. The conscious collective is undergoing a massive shift and all that is residing within and has been festering for eons is finally erupting. And, it’s not necessarily a pretty sight but nevertheless is a significant part of the change process. When you feel anger, impatience or other emotions around a person or situation ask ‘What is that showing me about myself? Why am I reacting so strongly?’

What you see in others is what you have within. What annoys you about someone reflects something that you need to heal. In her book, The Body is the Barometer of the Soul, Annette Noontil shares a personal story. Her intolerance of and anger towards people who litter was intense. When she meditated on what she herself needed to heal she received a clear message that while she didn’t actually litter stuff she wasted lots of time. In wasting time she was littering her energy on little things.

Once this process of self analysis and understanding takes place any intolerance and anger towards others dissolves as self healing takes place. The actions of others provide a perfect opportunity for inner growth and shifting awareness, resulting in increased acceptance and tolerance of whatever is occurring elsewhere.

Remember the Big Picture

It is all too easy to focus on the little things that are creating discordant energies and dissatisfaction. However, it’s important from time to time to stop and reflect on all that’s been learned in your journey. Prior to incarnating you knew that you would be coming into a world filled with turmoil, just as you knew that this turmoil would precede positive changes. Without the turmoil and uncertainty there can be no changes!

When I channeled the energy of Edgar Cayce he stated, many times, that this would be a process involving both pain and discomfort. However, he also pointed out that this process would ultimately result in many years of peace on the planet.

This is what I mean when I suggest that you remember the big picture. There are two possible options ahead for humanity and the planet. The first, which is ultimate destruction of all is a possibility, yet is not one that I’ll even put any energy into exploring. The second option is the one that Edgar Cayce stressed – a balanced and healthy world, where peace and harmony are predominant. It is this big picture that I know is possible. It’s possible because you have the ability to maintain steadfast with positive determination, to maintain a vibration of love towards everyone and everything. It’s the power of love, compassion and acceptance of what is happening that will eventually become the overriding frequency that supports the changes constructively.

At every opportunity – countless times daily – I encourage you to send love and healing to humanity, to Earth and to situations that sorely need to be lifted into that vibration. The more this is done by everyone the stronger and more dominant it becomes, until such time that a tipping point is reached and a complete shift occurs.

Jointly we have the power to make this shift – it’s up to you and I and everyone else to be the way showers in this regard. Remember, energy flows where attention goes!

Moving With The Times

“In case you haven’t noticed, there is an awakening going on. The world over, people are wising up to the countless distortions of our society and beginning to remember – once again – who and what we really are. And as a result, we are rejecting the poisons sold to us as “medicine”, the controls sold to us as “freedom”, the junk sold to us as “food”, and the lies sold to us as “truth”.

There are many ways this shift is manifesting, and being manifested. Ordinary people are embracing a new awareness and a revived sense of activism, and as a result we are standing on the brink of the biggest social revolution our planet has ever seen. As economies crumble around us, institutions are being exposed as control mechanisms and politicians are being revealed for what they are. As we approach a critical mass of awareness, it is our role to shape the future into something that works for us, not against us.

Sound overwhelming? It isn’t. The truth is – this kind of social revolution starts with our personal inner revolution.”

This excerpt was taken from New Dawn magazine, Vol.9, No.5 and written by Andy Whiteley, co-founder of

When reading this beginning to a brief commentary by Andy Whiteley I will admit to a short chuckle as it seemed these words have been expressed by me in countless writings for the past few years. Yet simultaneously I was elated as what I’ve seen coming is now manifesting more tangibly and evidently. It’s undeniable that there is a shift or transformation occurring. This transformation manifests in various ways, and differently, according to previous experiences, perceptions and beliefs.

Locally I’m seeing greater activism occurring. Animal rights organizations are becoming more vocal. Voters are expressing their concern and discontent at decisions made politically. It seems the level of apathy regarding issues that impact lives on a daily basis is receding and there’s more questioning of the status quo. And, of course the worldwide refugee crisis is playing a critical role in opening hearts and engendering a spirit of cooperation and humanitarianism.  

Interestingly – thanks to the internet – there seems to be more secrets revealed. Many of these secrets show that what we’ve been told are historical facts are actually fiction. Stories have been changed to suit particular agendas and ideologies. A great deal of information that’s been suppressed is also emerging, resulting in some scientific ‘truths’ to now being highly questionable.

Why is this all happening now? If you reflect back to December 2012 many in the spiritually aware community anticipated a significant shift, which in many instances didn’t manifest as anticipated. However, since that time it seems as though things are changing markedly and rapidly in our world. There is a definite speeding up in events and in the cosmic frequencies that impact our planet.

A gifted numerologist that I’ve known for many years has pointed out that 2015 is an 8 global year. In simple terms this means that it’s a year of reaping what has been sown. It’s also a year in which whatever’s been hidden becomes apparent.

About 15 years ago I channelled that deeply suppressed secrets would be revealed; that the truth of our real heritage would be shown; that there would be a mass awakening in consciousness. Interestingly there was also quite a bit of information channelled about Earth also going through a shift in her consciousness, and along with that all living forms on the planet would be changing. It’s now happening!

So where does this leave us? Where are we heading? Sometimes the crystal bowl isn’t too clear, especially when it comes to exact times or how things will unfold. However, many times I’ve received information from the non-physical realm that we are shifting into a reality where there will be two distinct levels of consciousness existing side by side – one consciousness being aware or awakened, the other remaining mired in the old energies and belief systems.

That duality is definitely apparent now. In fact, the distinction is actually becoming more evident. Recently I received information which indicates that by the end of this year we would really be feeling the shift. Apparently there’s likely to be a reset of Earth’s energies in early 2016. What this actually means in terms of scientific processes is beyond my capabilities to understand. At a layperson’s level I interpret that to mean that there’s going to be a change in Earth’s energy field. If this is the case then it could have both a profound, and possibly subtle, impact on all life on the planet.

One possibility is that accountability for all your actions will be more immediate and evident. I’m unable to speak for others yet will admit that I’m experiencing the cause and effect of all thoughts and actions very rapidly nowadays, resulting in the need for greater mindfulness in every undertaking.

It seems that Earth’s population is not yet at that point where there are two realities co-existing side by side. Currently there are three realities – and within those three realities there exists quite a continuum of differences.

The first group are individuals who have achieved a state of evolvement, which means they have completed all their karmic duties, cleared deep seated wounds and hold a great deal of light. Basically they are incredibly clear, working through their higher self and in alignment with their purpose without the burden of fears and old baggage.

This group will find life a lot easier; creation and manifestation will be almost automatic. All their striving to live with passion and to fulfil their purpose will be achieved. In addition, exposure to the heavier, denser forces or energies will be considerably reduced.

The second group is those individuals who either are in the process of awakening or have made some progress along the way. This group will be encouraged to do more. They will find that the process is accelerated and opportunities to become fully awakened will increase.

The third group is those who have chosen to remain mired in third dimension reality. This group, especially, will be highly challenged in all areas.

It is at this point that I may sound callous or indifferent. I know that the instinctive response in many people is to immediately offer support, giving their time, energy and money to help those who are struggling. The message I’ve received from the non-physical realms countless times is that everyone has been given the opportunity to shift to higher levels of consciousness, to transform within while Earth also undergoes her major shift. Not everyone has chosen to undertake this process!

Many years ago I was determined to send healing to a lady I felt really needed it. No matter what I did the healing didn’t seem to penetrate, and certainly didn’t change anything. When I questioned why I was told (by non physical beings) to not waste my time on someone who could do their own healing and wasn’t prepared to.

Since that time I’ve come to realize that undergoing an inner shift is often extremely painful and challenging. I’ve also realized that it’s a very personal journey and that gaining mastery over one’s growth and awakening can only happen when it’s undertaken with heart and passion.

As we near the end of 2015 I encourage you to do whatever it takes to be truly who you are, to strip away the layers of ego, and to find your passion and sense of purpose. Do it for yourself, not anyone else!

A New Wave of Consciousness Emerging

How was the first month of 2015 for you? If it was anything like mine it probably felt slow, a bit like a long wet week. During the past month, however, I feel as though I’ve been scoured more than ever – more layers of that proverbial onion being removed. From what I gather it’s been similar for many other people. Unexpected emotions surfacing, old issues reappearing and even people and events from the past re-emerging. What’s it really about? And, why after all this time isn’t the ride as smooth as anticipated? 

The word I kept hearing in my head this past month has been ‘refinement’, which I take to mean that there’s been a lot of fine tuning, that we’re being cleared of the denser vibrations in order that the newer, higher frequencies we’re being exposed to and have the potential to hold within can actually become the dominant frequency that is held. This means that the old, stagnant emotions and memories will have less of a grip and are much less likely to interfere with, or impact on, our journey into attaining our goals and aspirations. 

During the time that I channelled the energy of Edgar Cayce to audiences in the northeast of the States the message was very clear that a new wave of consciousness is emerging upon the planet. This new consciousness is attributed to several factors. 

  1. The conscious intention to create deeper meaning in life involves going within, healing old wounds, letting go, undertaking forgiveness and generally creating a transformative inner shift. Countless people worldwide have been on the quest to higher awareness for many years and have been diligent in shifting their inner landscape significantly.
  2. Significant support now being given by our space brothers and sisters. At the turn of the century I channelled that huge tsunami like waves of energy would be bombarding the earth. These waves of energy hold an incredibly high frequency, designed to lift the darker and heavier energies that have been predominant for too long. These energy ‘waves’ are basically to assist the Earth shift into a higher frequency, and all who live on her to that frequency of functioning.
  3. Children being born in recent years hold a higher frequency than their parents and grandparents. The long awaited Rainbow Warrior race is now being welcomed to the planet, thereby fulfilling a Native American prophecy. It is these beautiful beings who will ultimately shape the planet into its true potential of harmony and peace right across the globe.


Indications of Shift

It is all too easy to view the dark happenings in the world as an indication that nothing is shifting. There are plenty of individuals who are determined to remain in the fear state, expecting the worst and having those expectations confirmed daily when watching news and current affairs media. 

However, recently in Australia there have been two very significant indications of this shift in consciousness. Yes, it’s finally shifting from an inner transformation process to become evident in the outer reality! 

In the past few months there have been elections held in two states. In both State elections the outcome has been totally unexpected. Both incumbent political parties lost power after only one term in power – a totally unheard of thing in political history. 

Does this mean that the voters are fickle or heavily biased toward one party or the other? No, not at all. In fact, voters are expressing dissatisfaction with the performance of their elected representatives and are indicating that displeasure via their vote. Voters now are just as likely to do the same thing next election. People are sending a very clear message to their elected representatives – listen to us, ensure you follow through with promises because we have the power to change things very quickly. In fact, political commentators are already identifying this as a new political history. 

I view this as an expression of the shift in consciousness. Individuals and groups are voicing their opinions strongly and indicating that they are not ‘sheeple’, that their voices must be heard. If you look at other institutions it’s likely that the same consciousness shift is being voiced. Some institutions and systems take a while to shift. However, we’re seeing signs of it also with religion and education systems. 

Personally I feel that the changes are occurring too slowly – but that’s just my take on things – and when there are signs of change then I begin to feel elated.


Animal Welfare and Conservation

Thanks to the internet and global connectivity we’re rapidly becoming aware of the dangers facing animal species and the increasing extinction rates. As well, we’re able to learn about the consciousness that is occurring as committed individuals and organizations do all that is possible to rehabilitate and save different species. 

Especially heartening to see is the ‘communication’ connection occurring between humans and animals, with many of these animals considered to be wild and dangerous. My theory around this is that as we change our frequency from one of fear to one of unconditional love then animals respond accordingly. In fact, I’ve always felt that so-called wild animals are only considered dangerous because they have learned that humans are dangerous to their survival, due to being hunted and slaughtered mercilessly.


One Voice

There are many humanitarian projects being undertaken globally. Thanks to the world wide web it’s now much easier to coordinate days of celebration and awareness on a large scale or globally. This unites people of different races, religions and faiths and backgrounds. There is a much greater celebration of oneness than that of differences. 

The increasing number of well researched and well presented documentaries available on just about every aspect of consciousness, improving our lives and the wellbeing of the planet is almost beyond belief. All are geared to assist, support and even guide the general population into deeper thinking, questioning and also taking action where it feels appropriate or necessary.


Lifestyle Changes

Climate change is a huge and contentious issue, as well as posing a real challenge and threat to our existence. How we, as a global community, come to terms with this and modify our lifestyle will determine the ultimate outcome. 

It is heartening to see the huge trend towards organic self sustainability and self sufficiency. Cities where garden growing is not only encouraged but actively supported by elected representatives are still relatively new. However, both Vancouver BC and Seattle are great examples of this. 

I feel excited when I see more do-it-yourself information on simple ways of creating self-sufficiency in one’s own home and garden. Recently I was fortunate to come across an individual who has achieved amazing results in turning desert into thriving and productive landscape. The link to his work is:

Ultimately our reliance on corporations and governments to take care of our needs is not guaranteed. Simple changes in lifestyle can, and does, decrease dependence on a system that charges significant dollars for delivery. Along with that decrease in dependence a sense of achievement arises.

Each week I visit one of our many local markets and do all I can to support local growers and producers. The skills and knowledge available locally is comprehensive. While doing this I ask many questions and tend to come away with a desire to know more and to do more for myself, rather than relying on products that are mass produced and shipped here from China.


How are you Manifesting your Consciousness Shift?

This is not a quiz. There are no right or wrong answers. All I ask is that you reflect on your life journey to date. How much have you changed? To what extent have you experienced a shift in consciousness? In what ways are you demonstrating and manifesting that consciousness shift? And, finally, how can you improve on what you are already doing and have already achieved? 

Only you have the answers to these questions, and only you are in a position to formulate a plan of action – if it feels appropriate to your needs. 

My understanding of this shift is that it’s a process of change, growth and refinement. Possibly there is no end point or destination. The transformation into higher consciousness is your responsibility and yours alone. The extent to which you undergo this process is totally up to you!

Embrace the Changes

Now that the festive season is over and the stresses of frenzied shopping, cooking, socializing, etc are over I can’t help but wonder if anyone else is experiencing the same feeling as I am, which is “What now?” It’s amazing just how much energy is expended over a few months at the end of each year in order to celebrate and share with others. The New Year generally starts off with a bang, often filled with positive intentions, but generally it’s not long before there’s a feeling of being in a vacuum, a feeling of wondering and attempting to figure out exactly how to fulfil those positive intentions. 

Usually I strongly advocate living in an abundant present moment, while focusing on manifesting an ideal, satisfying and ongoing ‘future’. However, currently my thoughts are on all that occurred in 2014 and what has been achieved in that time. Globally there was no shortage of dramas and catastrophes. Yet, simultaneously it was a wonderful year to purge old emotions, to let go of things that no longer satisfied or worked. In particular, 2014 was a year of opportunity. I view this opportunity as the potential for going inwards, for reflecting and for correcting those things that needed to be modified or corrected in our lives. 

What have you taken from 2014 that has the potential to create positive change and growth this coming year? What were your most painful learning opportunities? How have you dealt with them? How will you be doing things differently in 2015? Last year I released both cellular and energetic memories from so many lifetimes that it seemed to be a never ending process. Consequently I feel much calmer and clearer, and definitely have that ‘empty’ feeling within. 

Basically 2014 was a powerful year as it provided an opportunity for inner transformation. It was a year of learning and teaching. Hopefully we’ve all gained something important from whatever was experienced last year and which can support and enrich our lives from hereon in. 

Currently I feel as though I’m chomping at the bit, eager for the changes that I’ve worked towards. Yet I keep getting the message to be patient, forcing me to truly live in the moment. 


In recent weeks I’ve been fortunate to receive information from the non physical realms regarding world dynamics. This coming year has the potential to be a time of enrichment, where dreams and aspirations manifest and a time of increased self empowerment. Yup, the vibes are highly positive for many individuals, in particular those individuals who have been undertaking ‘spring cleaning’ of their issues and belief systems, and who have begun the shift from the old paradigm. When shifting from the old paradigm there is a resultant shift in individual vibrational frequency to a higher frequency and level of functioning. This is what happens as we let go of old belief systems, patterning, blockages, etc.  

It’s vitally important to focus on the positive and to maintain a frequency of love, harmony, gratitude, etc from now on. There will be opportunities arise where it will be easy to become embroiled in the energies of the old paradigm. From what I understand it’s important to not succumb or spend time in the lower frequencies. Certainly there may be times when it’s necessary and important to release a lower frequency emotional memory, where clearing that memory actually supports you in maintaining a higher frequency.

Releasing old memories and emotions is part of the process of inner transformation and must not be confused with individuals and situations where the lower frequencies persist. It is a natural human tendency to rescue, help or even save others – often from themselves! What I share now may sound cruel or selfish but I ask that you view me as the messenger more than anything else. In my own words this is the gist of one of the messages I’ve received – and if you’ve read any of the Edgar Cayce channelings I undertook a few years ago you’ll also find references to this message. 

All souls have an equal opportunity to shift their frequency to the higher vibrations, though not all souls will take that opportunity. They will choose to remain mired in the ego based frequencies of materialism and the darker energies that have become strong on the planet over generations. It is not your responsibility to carry or force anyone else to make this shift from the old into the new paradigm. The transformation process is an individual journey. Some souls will embark upon it joyfully, some reluctantly and others not at all. It is vitally important to honor the choices made by others, and to pursue your choices steadfastly. 

In addition, in order to hold your frequency it is suggested that you avoid being pulled into the lower frequency dramas. This is often easier said than done, particularly if you watch television and current affairs programs. Most of these are filled with issues involving drama, pain, grief, suffering, conflict, etc. These hold the frequency of the old paradigm. Instead of taking on the pain of those who have been involved in these situations allow yourself to be the observer – without judgment or attachment – and continue sending love and healing at every opportunity. 

Does this mean that 2015 will be chaos and catastrophe free? Not at all. Those individuals who have chosen to remain in the lower frequencies will continue to experience more of that energy. That is the reality those souls have chosen! 

Two Realities Co-ExistingAnother message of significance is that a division between two realities now exists upon the planet. One reality consists of those individuals who have chosen the higher frequencies, the other contains those who choose to remain in the lower frequencies. These two realities will co-exist, side by side, for some time. Eventually, however the higher frequency reality will predominate and will become the only frequency Earth accepts. 

If you haven’t already figured it out, this means that ultimately those souls who choose to remain in the lower frequency will eventually choose to no longer live on the planet. 

This is an inevitable evolutionary process, involving both our beautiful planet and those souls who are accompanying her in this frequency shift. 

Evolved Souls

There is no denying that so many young people are of a higher soul evolution. If you have children and/or grandchildren I’m sure you’ve noticed the changes that are occurring. These younger generation individuals are often labelled Indigo, Crystal or other names due to the huge characteristic and trait differences they carry. 

Another message I’ve been given is that only evolved souls will be born into human form on the planet from now on. If we assume that all souls are the same then I believe we are making a huge mistake in our thinking. For many years adults have commented that an individual is an ‘old soul’ or a ‘young soul’ – or used different words to describe the inherent nature of the individual. Intuitively we’ve known that not all souls are the same. 

I use the word ‘evolved’ to describe higher order souls though that may not necessarily be the most appropriate term, but I’m sure you’ll get the gist of what I’m saying. Our planet is receiving an influx of higher frequency souls, who all come in with a clear sense of purpose and who know a lot more than we mere adults. It is these evolved souls who will be playing a paramount role in shifting humanity into higher frequency functioning on all levels. 

Now is the Time

Whether or not we’re ready the Shift of the Ages, that’s been long prophesized, is upon us. The shift is more of an internal shift, an inner transformation, which in turn eventually results in massive and significant changes on all levels. From my understanding it’s likely to take a generation, or about 25 years, for it to be fully completed. This means that we’re likely to be observing and experiencing continual changes on countless levels in coming years. But then, recent years haven’t been that calm either! 

Whatever 2015 brings I trust that you’ll use every opportunity to embrace the positive shifts and be fluid with making changes as they occur! 

Letting Go Of Illusion

Have you ever had the experience of wondering what in the world is real? Or what is the truth of a situation? Just how much of our co-created reality is actually based on belief systems and perceptions, rather than truth? Is it possible that many of these are no longer relevant or applicable?

As we near the end of 2014, an incredibly tumultuous year in which many of our core values are being challenged and tested to the nth degree, it’s actually a miracle if we are able to remain centered and balanced. 

Kudos to you if you survive this year with feelings of optimism and a strong sense of yourself and your direction! 

It’s not my intention to sound cynical or even contentious. Rather I’m in awe of the extent to which our reality seems to be unravelling and the basis of many beliefs and practices are now in question.

There are many evident examples of just how rapidly truth and information is changing. The internet, media and social media, especially, are continually shaping our perceptions of reality as more new data, stories and ‘facts’ are touted. 

Given the amount of information readily available on just about every topic it’s easy to become influenced or sceptical, depending on inclinations and conditioning. Rather than focusing on old and current research in any field, or discussing the merits or otherwise of findings I feel it’s more important to actually maintain balance and harmony in daily life. 

Letting Go Of Illusion

All the things that are witnessed and experienced in the short period of a lifetime are basically an illusion. They are merely an opportunity to engage in the physical manifestations that are consciously (and unconsciously) co-created. The short period of time spent in the physical body offers opportunities to create, play, engage and evolve. The dramas, fears, wars, emotions and activities engaged in do not reflect the true nature of your essence. Your essence, or higher wisdom, experiments and creates your life experiences yet in no way becomes them! Your essence knows and understands the illusion of this temporary playground called Earth and all that transpires while living in human form. 

We Are Transforming

According to everything I’ve learned over many years is that we are now in the middle of a massive shift or transformation. This is not a comfortable process, and at times it may be downright painful, filled with uncertainty and confusion. At times you may feel as though you are caught between realities. The old reality, the one you grew up with and are familiar with may at times feel strong and secure. At other times it may feel dated and irrelevant. The exposure to an overwhelming information load and conflicting knowledge ensures that the status quo does not remain constant. This constantly being pulled in different directions takes its toll on the physical body, as well as emotionally, mentally and spiritually. 

During this time of transformation we are learning that nothing remains the same – as much as we often would prefer that change isn’t as constant! We are finding our belief systems often no longer apply, that long held practices no longer have the same impact or effect, and that our feelings and awareness are shifting. 

All this confusion and inner conflict are reflected in the outer reality. A brief analysis of world events indicates the turmoil is widespread. All this is an essential part of the transformation process. In much the same way as you  may be strongly inclined to clear the clutter out of your closets and home, globally there is also a clearing of the old energies, beliefs, enmities, traditions and cultures, etc that no longer reflect the changing energies of the world’s population. 

Lies, Mistruths and Deceptions

A significant aspect of this transformation process is the revealing and exposing of the lies and deceptions that have been generated through the generations. This process can be extremely unsettling as deeply embedded traditional family, cultural and geographic beliefs are exposed as being based on false premise. This results in great uncertainty and questioning, which is an essential part of the transformation process. 

My sense is that we’ll see more whistle blowers and mistruths revealed in the next few years. In fact, it’s highly likely that the dramas of 2014 will be continued for a while. Whether you choose to be part of those dramas or to believe in them is your decision. 

Ultimately this transformation process is an opportunity to release the illusions, to let go of dated beliefs and thereby begin the process of creating a more harmonious lifestyle, one that is connected with nature and which supports the understanding that everything is One! 

Recently I received a link to the latest Matthew channeling, which actually indicates that there’s more change coming, some of which may be greatly challenging. The link to this channeling is:  


Where Do You Stand?

To what extent have you let go of believing in the co-created illusion? Are you seeing the true nature of existence yet? Have your core values shifted dramatically? Are you more at peace deep within? 

Only you have awareness of your ‘position’ in the big picture. My sense of the current transformative times is that individuals who have undertaken a healing journey, who have released stagnant emotional pain and whose vibrational frequency is of a high level will come into their own in the next few years. These individuals will weather the challenges with minimal (if any) effort and will remain clear and balanced regardless of whatever chaos and dramas may be occurring. 

How Do You See Your Future?

Yesterday I engaged in conversation with a young guy ringing up my purchases at a local organic food store. It turns out that we have similar aspirations, despite the huge age gap! We both agreed that living off the grid, using permaculture practices, using alternative energy (solar for me) and collecting rainwater in order to live more sustainably on the planet is essential. His comment, “It’s my generation’s responsibility to clean up the planet, to make it becomes what it’s supposed to be” warmed my heart greatly. He knows his purpose and stated with great clarity the importance of this undertaking. This young man has seen through the illusion and finds it incredibly unappealing and irrelevant. 

Not everyone is able to clearly see or get a sense of their destiny, or purpose. However, most likely you are on the way to figuring out yours when you: 

  • Appreciate and enjoy the simple things in life;
  • Feel passionate about making a difference in some way;
  • See your life journey being connected with others, including total strangers, animals and plants;
  • Have compassion and extend it gladly;
  • Live in trust and in the moment;
  • Enjoy the ease and flow of life as it happens;
  • Let go of the need to control;
  • Smile and laugh often;
  • Accept others as they are;
  • Value and honor your own health and wellbeing.

 Letting go of illusion and transforming back into your natural higher wisdom state is a journey, one that many have been undertaking in recent years. It’s not always an easy journey, especially when old values and beliefs are found to be invalid. Yet, I encourage you to continue refining the process. Let go, learn to trust your higher wisdom and its intuitive guidance and you’ll begin to find that life is less stressful and more joyful.
