Love, Fear and the Coronavirus

                                               

As shock subsides from the sudden corona virus event, many of us now find ourselves reflecting and re evaluating how our lives looked in the past and speculating how they are going to look post corona.

All this reflecting is in perfect timing as the planet Pluto retrogrades along with Saturn,Venus and Jupiter in May.

Also, the lunar nodes are shifting which is a big event.
(Find out the details in this excellent article by Forever Conscious https://foreverconscious.com/intuitive-astrology-forecast-may-2020)

One thing that has surprised me is that governments all over the world have valued human life and wellness over money.  A welcome fact when you look back at past wars. Although the economy has suffered, many lives have been saved and many potential victims spared. This is huge in terms of new awareness seeping into the global consciousness and we can only hope that more compassion, more caring values are collectively honoured in the future.

But what about our personal lives? Many lives have been shattered or at the least disrupted through unemployment, loss of homes, increased domestic violence, relationship breakdowns, loss of connection with family and loved ones. As we begin to pick up the pieces, we now have an opportunity to put the them back together to make a new picture.

As the Course in Miracle says, there is only fear or love. So taking the fear and turning it into love, faith, hope and trust creates a great foundation for moving forward.

Asking our voice of fear within what scares us about how our future life can be a good starting point. Once we put our fears on the table for examination, fear shrinks and heals in the light.

We can then ask our voice of love and trust, what story would it tell us about the future?

Phoenix from the Ashes from 'Wallpaper Cove'
For example, I am fearful that, because my youngest child has lost the plot with his Uni course during lock down, he wont get back on track and he will be living in a world of high unemployment and limited opportunities. 

Yet, my voice of love and trust tells me that he has his own journey to walk, he has his lessons to learn in life as I have mine and at the end of the day the only power I have is to love him unconditionally regardless of choices he may or not make. I can turn my worry over to higher power. Even as I write that I feel so much lighter! 

Now is the perfect time, as some of the restrictions begin to ease, to get clear about where you are going to come from, on the inside, moving forward. We may not have all the answers or know yet how things will pan out on the outside but we do have the power to commit to rising above fear and reaching out for love. 



As the great Persian poet Rumi said...
                                                                        'Only from the heart can you touch the sky'

Below are some of your questions answered. If you have a question, email me at info@lizwintermedium.com The Blog is published on the first Monday of each month.

Question
I recently began dating someone and although we connect on some levels, I am doubtful about going forward.

Answer
When I tune into Spirit I sense a man in Spirit who passed before his time that has a very dry sense of humour but in a loving way. I felt you knew this person a long time ago and were close to them at some point. He was tall and slim. He indicates that this person you have been dating has a good heart and there is a type of connection, but perhaps you two are working out what that is. It may not necessarily be a romantic one.  He suggests to keep your options open although he also says the month of May, clarity will come around this. I also sense the person you are dating may also be having doubts.

Question
One year ago, I met someone and we had a great connection. The problem is he lives interstate and is reluctant to commit to a long distance relationship.  Do you see this person in my future?
Anon

Answer
I sense a joyful feeling between the two of you and it is certainly no coincidence you met. I feel a loving older lady around you in Spirit, a grandmother energy giving you big hugs at the moment. She suggests to stay in touch with this person and hand it over to the Universe, what will be will be. I do see you meeting up in person and laughing a lot. The connection continues to evolve so I do feel this person is part of your future.

All Things Must Pass



It is no doubt one of the most unexpected and craziest times any of us have experienced.

I always thought the next major global shift would be world wide earth changes, maybe the poles melting or a nuclear war. Never did I imagine a pandemic would create such a major change on so many levels and I am sure you didn't either.

When I saw that the planets Saturn and Pluto were both in Capricorn last year and this year, I wondered what sort of structure would fall, (Saturn representing structure and Pluto representing disintegration) perhaps the stock market I thought. I never saw this coming, but now that it is here, each of us have to decide how we are going to deal with it because I do believe we have a choice.

I know many people are hurting financially, missing family and loved ones and being faced with all sorts of challenges that has come with the whole caboodle, let alone feeling the thick energy of fear and anxiety that seems to be lingering in the air.

Yet I can't help but think that for anyone who has walked a spiritual path, it's time to walk our talk, it's time to shine our light so brightly and be the light that we are. It does not mean we have to perform grand gestures but it means deciding to look to the light, to go within, ask Spirit to help us, to show us the way, ask how we can help, be humble and choose to believe the thoughts that serve us.

By owning the light we are, we automatically add to the collective conscious, we raise the vibration of the planet, we role model to others and we bring comfort and nurturing to those around us.  

Watch the thought that starts with fear, because before you know it, like a domino, that thought starts expanding to the next fear thought and the next one....switch it to a thought that is kind, that is hopeful and let that expand or shift your focus to something that brings  you joy or makes your heart sing.  The only control we have over this virus is contributing good energy to ourselves and the planet. When it seems too hard to do this, just pray, because that in itself will raise your vibration.

Remember we are not alone, Spirit is always with us.

Perhaps this whole thing is a doorway to a new and beautiful world, who knows. I also think the important thing to remember is we are visiting this planet for a limited time, one thing is guaranteed, and that is change, nothing stays the same.

I leave you with the wise words of George Harrison:

All Things Must Pass

Sunrise doesn't last all morning
A cloudburst doesn't last all day
Seems my love is up and has left you with no warning
It's not always going to be this grey
All things must pass
All things must pass away

DeviantArt
                   Moving Clouds FLA by Dryui on DeviantArt
Sunset doesn't last all evening
A mind can blow those clouds away
After all this, my love is up and must be leaving

It's not always going to be this grey
All things must pass
All things must pass away
All things must pass
None of life's strings can last
So, I must be on my way

And face another day
Now the darkness only stays the night-time
In the morning it will fade away
Daylight is good at arriving at the right time
It's not always going to be this grey
All things must pass
All things must pass away
All things must pass
All things must pass away

Question
Do I have any messages from my angels? I feel they have been quiet lately and I need to know they are still around me. Jane


Answer
There are many reasons why we don't feel our loved one's around us, however they are always there, its just that our awareness of them is temporarily down, like the wi fi signal is low. So be assured they are always looking out for you. However, when I ask Spirit for a message for you I see an older couple, who I sense had a lovely marriage. She holds red roses and he tips a hat, perhaps grandparents. I sense he liked horses, maybe to bet on, not sure. The lady did delicate embroidery and she said you are very creative. They are fond of your partner, and your partner's humour?  She is proud of you. Someone called Maggie is relevant. A message about a son, all is well. Hope some of that makes sense, Be well, stay safe,

Question
I would like to ask you about my son. He is in his last year of scholl and just turned 17. Will he come out of all of this chaos okay? Will he stay safe and happy? Josie

Answer
I feel a father figure around you in Spirit who is helping you and your son at the moment. Your son has a sensitive soul and feels others emotions easily. I feel like many of us he is experiencing a variety of feelings at present but deep down he is an old soul and will manage this time extremely well. He has your warmth and is grounded and he will rise to the challenge of study in isolation well. I see a bright future for him, he is super clever. I also see him having a rich family life in the future. For you I see pink carnations and soft energy coming from Spirit,  there is a message of love from a Mary. Self nurture and be well.

Question
I would like to  offer my services to some friends at my workplace which includes Reiki for a horse with spine damage and some spiritual art work, but unsure whether I need to prepare more first and approach them or should I just let things unfold organically? Anonymous

Answer
I felt a big smile from Spirit when I read your question as your heart and your intentions are very loving and pure. Spirit has placed these people in front of you for a reason but I do feel to let things sit for a bit, see what unfolds in the coming few weeks. You will be helping them but I sense a piece of the puzzle is missing and as much as you mean well, they may not get where you are coming from. Give them more time to get to know you. Spirit has heard your prayers and will answer in perfect timing. They show me you running through a field of daffodils looking very happy, I feel love and success coming in around you.

Rejection is Protection

Image by eventshigh.com
Last year I had this crazy idea that I wanted to study full time nursing.  Having recently moved to a city where I knew no one, feeling in limbo, I started doing volunteer work at a local nursing home. I had some profound interactions between myself and some of the residents there but rather than just accept those special moments as a gift in the moment,
I decided it must be my destiny to do more in that area.

I tried several times to create a spiritual circle in this new city but nothing came of it. Perhaps Spirit doesn't want me to teach anymore I decided. I was feeling very unsure of my direction and choosing to do nursing was a stab in the dark.

I excitedly filled out all the application forms full of enthusiasm and I had visions of myself in a crisp white uniform performing my nurse duties. The woman at the college on the end of the phone assured me that my age of 58 was okay and I could do this.

One catch, I had to complete an English and Maths test and achieve a level 4 standard to be eligible. I uploaded the test and took almost two hours to complete both tests. I felt reasonably confident. Well, I passed the English with flying colours but the maths test result was only level 3 so I was told I could not do the 5 day a week full time course, although I was welcome to reapply in 3 months time.

REJECTION! I felt disappointed and wondered what I was supposed to be doing in this city, nothing seemed to be working.

Fast forward to three months later. Oh my God, thank goodness I got rejected. I am seeing my life in a whole new way now. In the last three months, I visited Hawaii and had profound insights at a course I did there, I have a new puppy that needs a bunch of my time and we are just about to put down permanent roots in this city as we unexpectedly got approved for a house loan.

Also, both my grown up children who still live at home are committing to University here for the next 4 years. If I had have been travelling to the CBD 5 days a week and coming home with a ton of study, I would have had no time for my family, my puppy or my spiritual work. What I perceived as rejection was total protection.

image by www,wisdomquotes4u.com
I am excited about my spiritual work again, once I am settled I plan on teaching, writing and inspiring others in whatever way Spirit guides me to do.

It is now becoming clear to me that the limbo time I have been experiencing the last twelve months has been an opportunity to build consciousness, to shift awareness and to have time to morph into the next stage of my life.

We don't always know the bigger picture and although its wonderful to nudge a direction here and there, when doors don't open it doesn't mean there is something wrong with us.  It's the universe saying there is something better for you that is more aligned to who you truly are.

There is a line in the course in miracles, (which I am a student of), that says
'I do not perceive my own best interests' and I love that reminder. Sometimes what we think we want or need is way off the mark. Yet, Spirit knows what we need, just like a parent knows when a toddler needs a nap although the toddler will tell you it needs an ice cream instead.

So trust, trust and more trust. Whatever is going on your life may not be working out the way you think it should or the way you think would bring you satisfaction but do know there is a force at work behind the scenes that truly does have our best interests even if it makes no sense at all.

Question
I am preparing to start a mindfulness through slow stitching group in March. Will I be successful in my idea of craft as healing? Zoya

Answer
I sense you are being guided to do this by those in Spirit around you. I feel it will begin with a small group but will gain momentum once the energy starts filtering through the ethers. You yourself will gain a lot from running this group. Spirit is celebrating!



Question
I am trying to manifest some clients for my craniosacral healing, does Spirit have any advice?
Leanne

Answer
I do see clients coming to you. I see you advertising your healing gifts on a local facebook page, or an online platform. Adding a video might be helpful. I also get to keep using your gifts on friends or family as by doing it, you are attracting the energy. I sense healing guides around you who are proud of you for putting yourself out there and say to have faith, it will happen.

Question
Do I keep pushing forward with my relationship? Will things improve?
Maddie

Answer
Only you can really decide whether you want to stay or go. When you use the words 'pushing forward' makes me feel that it is a burden more than a joy. However, I do feel a gentle lady around you in Spirit who is saying, 'keep the lines of communication open' as I sense there is a lot of miscommunication or misunderstanding going on at the moment. It is like you need more clarity between you two before you can make any major decision around the relationship. Hope that helps.

Question
Is my twin flame who I think it is and will we be together soon?
Anonymous

Answer
Personally, I believe we have more than one twin flame but either way, I sense the party you mention is very connected to you. However,  I sense at the moment they are either unavailable due to being in another relationship, or possibly I am wrong there and they are emotionally unavailable. I feel the current situation here is  like watching the kettle waiting for it to boil, the moment you stop focusing on it, you get a result. I sense there is an opportunity for you to let go of the outcome, just send love to them and see what happens. I feel they are not wanting to commit to you at this time, but that could change.

Question
Will I get a promotion this year?
Jolanda

Answer
I sense you really deserve a promotion and that you have worked hard. It may need a bit of a push and I don't mean that you have to badger anyone. I get that you can help it along with affirmations, visualisations and getting very clear within yourself exactly what sort of promotion you want and how you will feel when you arrive there.  Its like you want it but you cant imagine it will happen. So align the desire and the vision and success will be yours. Wishing you much success!

Love in the new decade

A new decade is suddenly upon us and there is part of me that feels a little stressed because I am not sure where to place my energy or what are the best intentions to put out for the future.

Then I remember that sometimes the best course of action is to choose to be comfortable in not knowing and stand back and wait for what feels right.

I don't mean we should merge into inertia either but forcing things to please others or because we think we should, and ignoring our intuitive inner guidance smacks of betrayal to ourselves. Disappointing others is inevitable sometimes but at the end of the day, loving ourselves is the best priority we can give, not only to ourselves, but the world at large.  When we feel peace, it shows, it spreads and it heals.

I recently received a newsletter from Author/Speaker Cheryl Richardson talking about New Year resolutions, here is an excerpt;
"What if the only resolution you made was to love yourself more?
It’s a simple idea that cuts through the overwhelm of setting goals, making promises, and worrying about staying on track with traditional resolutions.  You simply consider this:

What do you need to do to love yourself more this year?

As I move into 2020, I know that to love myself more, I need to face the reality that spreading myself thin over too many social interactions, projects, and professional commitments leaves me skimming the surface of life rather than diving in deep.  I want to be present for the people I’m with and I want the things I choose to do to feel meaningful, satisfying and fulfilling. "
As I read this, my 'inner ding' activated and it rang true.  
I am not sure yet exactly what choices I will make this year but I trust that I am guided by a power that resides within and that is who I truly am. If I make it my priority to honour and nurture myself I have no doubt that things will work out exactly as they are meant to.
I encourage you to self love, avoid stress and don't think that you have to move mountains. Stop, self love and then see what feels right.
As the planet and its inhabitants are in a delicate state right now, it's the best gift we can give. Inner peace and self love.
May 2020 be the beginning of something beautiful !

Darkness before the Dawn

www.gregdutoit.com/fine-art-prints/dusk-to-dawn/
As I scroll through social media, I notice that people in general look more tired than usual, worn down with a hint of defeat behind their eyes. It is as though the sweetness and innocence of  life is eluding many of us.

Structures that have defined our life here on earth, like religion and politics, justice systems etc crumble before our eyes. Climate change, among other things, is inducing fear of our own extinction and a sense of powerlessness prevails. In our own lives, challenges have never seemed so big with anxiety impacting many people's lives.

So many of us are worn down, exhausted and sick of trying to find a thread of light. So how do we make sense of being here, in this time and space.

Well, to point out the obvious, for positive change to occur, the old must go! The toxic politics, religion and lack of care for the vulnerable and the planet has to be addressed and dismantled.

Perhaps what is happening is actually a wonderful thing where qualities of  unity, respect, care and faith in the goodness of humanity prepares to be restored. This idea can also be applied in our personal journeys.

Many of us are feeling our personal lives are being dismantled.  I believe we are being called to expand who we are. We are being called to be open to thinking outside existing, comfortable squares. We are being called to acknowledge that we are so much more than a body,  to dig deep and get in touch with our true inner selves that has endless love, healing and wisdom for ourselves and each other. We are being asked to examine our choices and question if  they are really serving us.

As 2019 comes to a close, rather than curse the year leaving us, perhaps we can reflect on what we have learned, what blessings came from hardship and what wisdom can we take with us into 2020.

For me I can say I am learning to control less, pray more, pull myself in to my centre more often and let go of outcomes more so. Externally its been bumpy but internally,  along with some chaos, it's been a process of trusting, healing and letting go.

When we eventually return to our true home in the Spirit World, may we feel blessed that we had this life and know that we never gave up trying to find the thread of light even when we felt temporarily blinded. 

Let's hold vision for ourselves and a healed planet where there is unity, love and care and know deep within that right now is truly the darkness before the dawn.

I will be travelling in December so this is my last blog for 2019, see you in 2020!

A sincere thanks to all of you who have supported this blog and my work.  I truly wish you a fabulous, stress free Xmas and New Year!

Below are some of your questions answered. If you would like to ask a question, email me at          info@lizwintermedium.com I publish my Blog on the first Monday of each month. (although that won't be until 2020 now, wow that sounds weird!) 

Question I have been experiencing panic attacks while driving over the last twelve months and cannot connect any trigger. Does Spirit have any insight? Anonymous   

Answer I sense that you are certainly protected when you are driving as I see two tall angels around you while you are the wheel.  I am drawn to the heart centre and feel its an emotional wound of some sort that tends to rise to the surface when you are driving. It may be because we tend to slip into that relaxed automatic pilot relaxing our left brain when driving allowing the more feeling nature comes up.  Was there some sort of grief a year ago (or possibly further back) or upset that still feels unresolved? I feel by asking this question here in the blog,  you have given it over to source and you can expect a clear answer soon! If it does continue, I would recommend seeing a psychologist, they can be really helpful with these types of anxiety attacks. Emergency Essence from the Australian Bush Flower Range may also be a helpful driving companion.

Question I have been offered a job a few days a week in a shop and wonder whether it will continue and will I be up to the mark? Zoya 

Answer I sense a father figure around you in Spirit who is very pleased about this situation.  He says you are never too old for fun and I do feel this job brings some fun as well as some extra pocket money into the mix.  It is a divine intervention situation so enjoy and don't worry about tomorrow.  You will be fine.

Question Will my partner and I find a house to make our home in the up coming future and the get the opportunity for a fresh start? Maddie

Answer I am not sure what the delays have been but I sense not everything has been in place for some reason yet. However, if you continue to remain patient, as you have been, you will see progress in 2020. I sense that your partner is hesitant or is not practically in a position to make this happen quite yet. When it does happen you will be really pleased with the outcome. So definitely yes, but its a matter of the right timing. 

Question Can Spirit guide me on choices around preparing for a relocation in the next year? Kim


Answer  I sense a lovely lady around you in Spirit who brings lots of home grown roses that smell beautiful.  She feels like a mother energy to you and sense she was connected on the family tree. She shows me her hands worked hard and may be on mothers side of the family.  She is trying to uplift your energy and instills positive thoughts.  A relocation is not a bad idea in the next few years but she points out that making peace with where you are now is your challenge.  What I mean is to see your time in your present location as a healing and learning curve and even the tough challenges have bought you wisdom and insight into who you are and how to make better choices that serve you. I like the idea of you living close to water, although not necessarily ocean. I also see you happy in love. There is still lots of living and loving to do ahead. I would not get too anxious about the future quite yet as you have plenty of time. Enjoy now.

Bending To Catch The Light


Image from underthebluedoor.org
As my car danced around the curvy cliffs of a road I knew so well, I turned the music up and sang joyfully away, enjoying my own space and knowing no one had to tolerate my singing voice.  Half way through the second chorus, a voice from deep within became louder than the music, it said SLOW DOWN! I quickly braked. Upon turning the next corner, a car was heading directly towards me, and I somehow gracefully swerved to avoid it.  If not for the loud voice of warning, who knows what the outcome would have been. 

I am sure many of you can recall a moment or many moments in your life where you were obviously guided by a higher power within yourself, or perhaps it was the voice of a loved one in Spirit. The example above paints a picture of where the voice of guidance was particularly loud, but each day of our life we have access to quiet inner guidance that we are often not aware of.

It’s the subtle feelings, the whispers of quiet downloads and a deep inside knowing that clamours for attention, competing with the loud and forceful logical thoughts.

Our inner light is often dimmed by expectations we place on ourselves, collective ideas we absorb by osmosis, by other’s ideals and old, outdated beliefs.

Learning to acknowledge our inner guidance is an unlearning process. It actually involves a realignment of values. We have the power to choose.  We can value the subtle whispers of our soul more so than the thoughts that obviously do not serve us.  For example, thoughts such as, ‘we are less’ or ‘we are not lovable’.  This is where the shift can begin, allowing us to live a more authentic, guided and peaceful life.

So how do we switch our ratio of faith to favour intuition as much as logic? 

Allow inner stillness, even for short periods of time.  Become an observer, a witness to your life experience.  Stand back and watch the thoughts that come and go and question whether they are really serving you. If you assess that a line of thought is not serving you, be creative and choose a new perspective. The thought process that announces you have failed can become recognition of an opportunity for learning.

Training one’s mind to recognise the difference between truth and fallacy, love and fear, trust and worry may be a lifelong process and one we may never completely master. However, we have much to gain and nothing to lose by firstly recognising and then honouring our higher nature.

In essence we are light. We are more powerful than we know. Let us become the tree that bends to catch the light. When we make that effort from the heart, a wonderful universal law is activated. We take one step and the Universe takes ten thousand. 


Below are some of your questions answered. If you would like to ask a question, email me at          info@lizwintermedium.com I publish my Blog on the first Monday of each month. (although that won't be until 2020 now, wow that sounds weird!)

Question   I would like to know any updates about my love life as I feel the energy is shifting around me now. Elena 

Answer
I feel the romance angels are around you so I assume you have been asking for Spirit's help! I sense you are in a more receptive state to receive love and abundance in your relationships so well done for all the inner work you have been doing.  I am shown a vision of you looking happy and laughing with a partner. Keep moving forward and trust that all your needs will be met. You are on the right track.


Question
I feel like I am stuck repeating a pattern in relationships that I am aware of intellectually and feel energetically but have not been able to release on a cellular level. How can I do so? Anonymous

Answer
I admire that you are so aware of your pattern but perhaps for you it makes it even more frustrating! I sense a beautiful tall angel around you helping you with this issue and the more I tune in I sense it is Archangel Raphael, the healing angel and he shows me your cells and auric field in motion, shifting and changing. My sense is that it is actually changing on some deep level that perhaps has not caught up to your conscious awareness, so hang in there.  Also, I know this sounds a bit obvious and I am sure you are already aware, but I feel at the end of the day it boils down to self worth and believing deeply that you deserve the best. Well done for all the work you have done on yourself. Have faith, it will pay off!


Question
Can Spirit give me some guidance about my future direction regarding where to put my time and energy regarding income. Lisa

Answer
I feel so many loved ones in Spirit around you, many family members who bring you a huge bouquet of colourful flowers and a sense of encouragement. You have been learning big lessons around patience but you are getting there and coming out the wiser for it. I sense time wise March and April next year will be where you really feel like you are moving forward. Before then I get that things come in bits and bobs if you know what I mean. I don.t feel that Spirit wants you to worry too much at this stage about putting too much energy out as you need healing time a bit longer. However, when the time is right, I feel like you are doing something creative with your hands and selling whatever it is you are making.  I also had a flash of markets or stalls, maybe more for promotion.  I am not sure if you already have a website but saw sales there.  I saw you enjoying nature and animals. Trust  your inner guidance as I feel you are hearing Spirit often.

Here Comes the Sun

Image from wallpapercave.com
YAY! September is here! Spring time, my favourite season. New beginnings, fresh starts, floral scents and new awakenings are all gifts on offer in Springtime. The New Moon in Virgo last week was perfect accompaniment energy for new beginnings.

After the intensity energy levels in previous months, things are beginning to shift and realign.

This month I was guided to share a message for us all from my book, Gifts of Guidance, Fifty Messages. Spirit and I co created fifty messages, that you can choose, much like a deck of angel cards.

It seemed apt that the message called 'The Sun' came up!

By the way, if you would like to listen to some short, free meditations, go to my You Tube Channel
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEp6FdjfBPGxHBOazvYkb9w?view_as=subscriber





Message 3
Light

The Messenger
The Sun
If light is in your heart, you will find your way home’   Rumi


The Vision
Sunlight streaming through a dark forest.

The Message
It is time to open your heart to the light; to see the light in yourself and the world around you. We have a choice to count our blessings or to focus on what is not right in ourselves and in our lives. Gratitude is a quiet power that we have only begun to touch on.
In this moment, consider one positive attribute about yourself. Send love and gratitude to that quality, then name another quality you love about yourself and you will soon become aware of many of your inner gifts.
Focus on a situation that is bothering you right now. Within each shadow is a gift; are you learning wisdom, patience or perhaps being honest with yourself and others?
The light is here to help you simply by acknowledging its existence. Darkness is but an illusion as when light appears, darkness vanishes.
The light and truth will now shine on whatever concerns you today. Whatever challenges you now face, look for the silver lining and clarity shall be yours.

The Lesson
Awareness and acceptance of the light within.

Power Choice
·     Open the curtains, allow the light in
·     Burn candles
·     Breathe in light
·     Spend time in the sun
·     Focus on gratitude.

Momentary Meditation
Inhale deeply while visualising light entering your lungs. Hold this light in for a few seconds and then exhale darkness, making room for the light. You can now breathe in light easily and gently.


Affirmation
‘I am the light.’

Liz’s Comments
This message asks us to release superficial judgements of ourselves and situations we are in. It encourages us to search deeper in our hearts rather than accepting everything our mind tells us as the truth. Now is an opportunity to ascend to a higher level of understanding.
In moments of meditation throughout my life, there have been some special moments where I completely became one with light. Once, as a teenager, I was innocently walking to the laundromat when for approximately five seconds, quite randomly, I was above my body watching it walk down the street. Those five seconds altered my whole outlook on life as I merged with a light and power that encompassed me in complete peace.
More recently, I had an outer body experience during a meditation. I found myself hovering over planet Earth and was totally in love with every square inch of it. No judgement or fear. I just felt unconditional love. Perhaps you have had a similar experience.
Although fleeting, in those timeless moments I became one with everything. I knew everything there was to know. I sense this is what death is like, being one with the light and being able to be in an endless moment of unconditional love. There truly is a part within us that is connected to each other and all things.
Although we often feel separated from ‘source’ in human form, the light within us is consistent and accessible. We can call on our angels, helpers and guides to assist our connection.
Spirit can help us more easily when we make a conscious effort to focus on the light and on our inner selves. Such is the importance of spending time within and seeking balance and harmony in our lives.

Question
Do you think we will be moving house in the near future?
Ms H

Answer
Dear Ms H, when I tune in I sense that your guides are trying to help you cut through the confusion but it is hard for you to hear them. They suggest you get some quiet time, either meditation or time out in nature to download their guidance and get a sense of what you really want. I sense if you make the effort to be quiet, Spirit will be loud and clear. Besides that message, I do sense that it is time for change and that there will be a move. I do see a peaceful green place that you are quite happy living in. Whatever the future brings regarding home, I feel its a good one.


Question 
I am feeling drawn to a change of direction with career and like the idea of starting my own business. Is this a good idea?
Misha

Answer
Dear Misha,  the fact you are 'feeling drawn'  says to me, that you are being guided and I would honour that. I sense your own business would be a great success but the transition period may be hard work, yet your passion will be your fuel. At the end of the day, as you know, a lot of what happens in life is based on free will and choice. If you choose this path, Spirit will support you all the way. I do feel however not to leave your current job at this point but to start taking steps towards your own business. I also feel there may be an opportunity to work in a environment, for somebody else in the near future, that will be similar to the business you would like to create. Get manifesting! You can do it and it will be SO rewarding!

Question
I would love some guidance around offering my readings, I am so ready but the practical and the particulars seem to be stalling me and am not sure how to proceed.
Miss SF

Answer
Dear Miss SF, I sense an older lady around you in Spirit who was very intuitive in her life, a relative, perhaps on your father's side of the family. She is a strong character and is pushing you to share your wonderful gifts. She is very practical and saying 'just start!' She is showing me a market atmosphere and also reading from a balcony somewhere that looks like a country side healing retreat or space. Once you begin, you will activate energy and more opportunities will come. As you say, you are so ready. Just start and the universe will guide you. This lady also shows me some business cards. Best of luck, the world needs your light!

Question
My kitty has been ill in and out of hospital, does Spirit have a message for me? 
Zoya


Answer
Dear Zoya, I am so sorry to hear about your Kitty and understand the worry and financial burden you are experiencing. When I tune in on Kitty, I feel she is tired and uncomfortable and part of her would like to go home to Spirit. However, only you can decide what best for both of you right now. I do see some improvement in the next few weeks, but in a way I feel what is happening now is preparation for when she does decide to go home. I feel your other pussy cat in Spirit is very close around you bringing you much comfort. I hear a little bell ringing, maybe she wore one around her neck. Much love and healing light to you and Kitty!


Question 
After a long break away from Australia I'm returning next week and would like to know how work life would look like in the next few months? Daniella

Answer 
Dear Daniella, I feel a father figure energy around you in Spirit who is guiding you at this time with practical decisions. I sense he may have passed before his time and was a grounded sort of fellow. He says you are in tune as you are returning at the perfect time where unexpected opportunities will arise. You will have a few choices of career direction but the one you choose will give activate joy and enthusiasm. I feel it will be a helpful role and bring you satisfaction. All will be well. Welcome back !


Question
I am looking for any insight on moving forward. I have taken a couple of steps, where to now?
Ms. K 

Answer 
Dear Ms K, You have many loving people in Spirit around you who are excited for your future. I feel like you are travelling overseas and laughing a lot. I had a flash of somewhere that looked a little like Arizona. I sense you are ready to let some new people into your life, not that you will seek them out, I feel that they will just turn up. I also saw you doing something very creative with your hands, maybe weaving, dream catchers (?), leather work, fabrics etc. Now is the time for you. Be open to the new.  Doing some sort of intentional vision quest could also be quite helpful to you now.  Wishing you all the best for your fabulous future!
