Simply, if you are putting out the energy of desire and want, you are telling the Universe that you are in lack because you don’t have it. You are saying ‘my vibration is out of resonance with that thing over there which my ego is telling me I should have’.
How to change that? Focus on the feeling, the vibration, the resonance of the desire. The energetic make-up behind the material experience.
Focus on the here and now. On finding and amplifying that feeling right here. Right now.
The quicker you can master your inner world to align with wholeness, freedom, expansion and connection to a greater source, the quicker the material world will start to manifest itself to align with YOU.
Feeling first, the world around you will follow.

Nothing worse than being caught in a conversation where you feel your energy being drained out of you or walking into an unavoidable space that feels yuck.
Here are 3 easy ways to protect your energy and not take on others ‘stuff’:
1: Visualisation, imagine a white light bubble around you that allows only the good stuff in and keeps the funky stuff out.
2: Ask your spirit guides for assistance. Let them hold energetic space for you.
3: Crystals. Keep a rose quartz (or Crystal of choice) in your pocket.
We explore energy protection deeper in our online course ‘Awaken Your Intuition’ but these are great starting points!
It takes pure bravery and courage to walk head on into a dark night of the soul.
These are the moments in life when it feels like the world as you know it is coming to an end, things aren’t making sense, you are on the precipice of great change, if you choose to move forward. To move forward often is to face parts of yourself you have been avoiding. These moments can arise naturally or in some traditions can be induced with plant medicine rituals.
This time in your spiritual journey is significant, it gives you the opportunity to recalibrate. The grace and discipline you give yourself in these moments will determine with how much ease you can move through it.
When a dark night of the soul comes around it can feel intense, hopeless and out of your control. Rarely is it comfortable. But great change never truly is.
As you find yourself facing your inner world know this...all things pass. There is always a beginning, middle and end....
In Sanskrit, Seva means 'selfless service' and it is describing the action of giving (being in service) without the need to receive anything in return.
Acts of Seva are often given as a benefit to others like a community or group. Being of service in this way can take practice and discipline. It's not always easy to simply give with no expectation of receiving something in return. You may not receive a thankyou. You may not be acknowledged. You may not be known. Selfless service takes away the need for validation and acknowledgement from our actions. We give because we want to be of service, to offer benefit to others, not to reap a reward or a nice, fuzzy feeling for ourselves.
Of course, when we find ourselves in a place in our lives where we give without the need to receive, and we offer up our time willingly and lovingly, we may also find that we receive abundantly anyway. Seva is not about never allowing ourselves to receive. We are allowed to give selflessly and...
My first job in TV (yes I used to work in film and tv) was as a ‘runner’, driving actors from studio to location filming. The drive was usually an hour long. Those hours were filled with laughter, deep conversations and every now and again moments of enlightenment that have stuck with me.
This one particular drive, my driving companion was sharing how pissed off they were and needed a quick way to dissipate the anger before going to film a loved up scene.
Enter the quickest way to change your mood, the one word release.
This is best practiced in a moving car, with the music up LOUD (can also be done at home with loud music if you don’t care for your neighbours, or alternatively underwater!).
Think of your most potent word (we all have a pretty common four letter one), take a deep breath in and let that word act like a magnet, drawing all of the ick towards it, then YELL that potent word out as hard, loud and long as you can....
Tapas. Not just tiny food from Spain, this is the third of the Niyamas (inner observances) outlined by Patanjali.
Tapas is our fire, our drive, our discipline.
B.K.S. Iyengar says that ‘Tapas is the conscious effort to achieve ultimate union with the Divine and to burn up all desires which stand in the way of this goal’. Plus, he says that ‘life without Tapas, is like a heart without love’.
Tapas can allow our desire for growth to get bigger, to burn like a flame. It can help us to stay on the path we have been led to (or chosen) when things get difficult. It can help us to develop mental attitudes and physical practices that continue leading us to higher states of awareness, connection and joy.
Tuning into our fire, our Tapas, makes us unshakeable. It burns up all of the ‘stuff’ on the periphery that is a distraction on our path forward and give us courage and wisdom to keep going.
