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!

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!

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. 

Loving Compassion Heals

This is just too good to pass up. Written by Jim Guerci and is shared with his permission. It was written in response to a proposed group demonstration against the practice of homosexuality.

” One of the biggest diseases in our world is auto-immune disease. This is when the body fights itself. The body’s defenses are turned onto itself causing the whole body to become disabled. I see that when we are fighting each other, we become an auto-immune disease in the body of humanity. 
 The intention of love and compassion towards those who choose to fight will offer a frequency and harmonic note for all to synchronize. The laws of physics teach us that law of synchronicity applies to all. We will always synchronize to the strongest and highest frequency. Perhaps the frequency of love and compassion will offer a new melody to right the harmonics. Since we are all one, we need to envision a harmonic frequency to enter all humanity. There is no one to fight. There is only ourselves we heal. 

One Tibetan Monk when interviewed about his capture and torture at the hands of the Chinese government was asked by the reporter, “What did you fear the most during these events?” He calmly responded, “That I would lose compassion for my captures.” His words clear the way for love and compassion in the most dire of circumstances. 

My heart goes out to all those who harbor hate for hate is destructive in all forms. If one allows it in their minds, it will pollute it and the result is that person extinguishing their compassion – their humanity and thus creating a soulless being void of the feeling of love which unifies us all. Let’s set the intention of healing, love and compassion not towards anyone. Let it be the harmonic note rise from a collective intention for all to synchronize.”
