In Love & War in 2020, go within.

At this junction, on this equinox, a gateway opens…

It’s in turbulent times, there comes a time to rise and shake off the shackles. In joy, in love, we dance it off to the beat of the heart. Let out that cathartic roar, let the heart soar!

It’s in the dark times we often get to see our light more clearly. It’s when the polarity gets amplified, the picture becomes more clearer – thus allowing us to discern more easily. Clarity! In these times, we feel our unique signature viscerally, our essence, our heart, our frequency… our beat. We bypass the mind, we just feel it, therefore we know. It’s instinctive. Like breathing, we just do it. We just know, and we do it. When we’ve done enough personal work, our ease and flow becomes more automatic. With practice and accumulated wisdom our discernment comes easily. This is mastery.

It’s in those times when we just know – this is our intuition. This is the heart-mind. This is our guiding light. This is the quantum field within. The akashic, the universal conciousness. The all knowing we think that’s outside of us, is in-fact also right here inside of us. The quantum field is outside, it’s inside, it’s every where! We are it and it is us.

It’s during these dark times, when the time is right and no sooner! Trust. We’ve trained for these times over the ages. When we’ve learnt enough of our lessons, that our steel is forged in the baptismal fire. We face the dark in the valley of shadows. This is when our blades are sharpest to cut through the veils. Stay the course, stay strong. Call in the guardians dear heart centred beings. Warriors of Light we are! Victory becomes palpable as we forge the heart way.

Revolution is evolution from within, one heart at a time. It first starts with our own heart. The dark night ends when we find zero point. In meditation, in this space of stillness, in this balance point, in this state of zen – this is the harmony the sages of the ages embodied. This is what they were teaching us all of this time. Emanate love! Radiant hue-man be-ing, the frequency of heart is rising.

And when we have cracked the shadow, and allow our light to shine through. We get to know who we are, and the path we walk… A new world opens up. A new horizon expands before us. With this new energy and power, we then are able to bear the task, to show another the heart way. Each one, teach one – this wave is building. Soon it will break and will find ourselves on new shores. On this equinox, this balance point of light and dark. A place of equal time, no time and all time, this change point, this course correction. This tidal wave of love and healing is here, now. Go within. Go within. Go within. Feel the peace, feel the love, feel the healing.

What you seek, seeks you! The power has always been within you. You hold the key to open your heart. And in turn another, by their own volition, in their time, opens their own heart by being a witness to this new way. For them, seeing is believing. So go forth brave heart ambassadors, emissaries of light – light the way. The heart way.

I AM Mantras

I AM mantra affirmations and decrees can transform one in a powerful way. The energy signatures that one emits reflects back to you. We are beacons of light energy transmitters, like radio towers that put out a signal. And like radio receivers, others can mirror back to us these frequencies and can send out their own energy signatures too.

It’s in the mist of these mixed energies we find ourselves in. Living in a haze of confusion, not hearing our own voice. Not really having a clear picture of our own path. It’s during turbulent times, we experience inner storms and choppy waves. Chaos.

This is when we need to seek out a safe harbour and calm waters to clearly see our way. One way to do this is through meditation. To silence the mind, to create clear thinking.

Meditation doesn’t need to be silent, of no mind. One is mind, mind is part of the human experience. Ego isn’t evil, heart isn’t weak. It’s our perceptions and judgments that create conditionings that get us stuck on a spin cycle of no peace. For me, what I’ve found, is that meditation is to create a single point of focus — to quiet the monkey mind. If the monkey wont calm down, give that monkey something to do by focusing on something positive like mantras that are life enhancing.

I AM mantras can create this change point. Create a list of statements you want to embody and repeat. For example…

I AM healthy
I AM peace
I AM calm
I AM love
I AM strong
I AM talented

Consciously be the change you want to embody. Entrain the mind, befriend and calm the ego.

To create an I AM mantra, choose words that empower you, that will lift you up and let you vibrate higher. Choose words that create more positive life force. The words you put after the ‘I AM…’ is the magic you create in your life. By adding positive feelings to these affirmations, it’s like putting diesel on a fire. You bring power to these meditations. Then repeat it often enough to condition and wash the brain of what sullies it. Add cleansed and charged crystals to your meditations to amplify these frequencies. If a negative thought or feeling pops up. Let it. And let it float away like a cloud against the clear blue sky. Just observe them and then, go back to focusing on your mantra.

You don’t even have to close your eyes. Just choose to focus your mind and repeat your mantra silently or aloud. Feel it, repeat it, reflect on it. Do this as long as you like. You are your own sacred space, best to clean it up! When you clear the monkey mind, do the shadow work and take out the trash… you create a clean environment to cultivate the mind state and life you want.

Meditation doesn’t have to be silent. It can be a living meditation. It can be focusing on a loving state of being, creating positive chi, life force, heart energy, Metta Sutta – loving kindness to yourself, or to others in your life. It can be appreciation, a gratitude practice. Being thankful of every — single — thing that has brought you to this point.

The I AM is the transmission of higher self, universal consciousness, christ consciousness, Great Spirit, the gateway to the akashic records, the universal library. For it is that the kingdom in heaven lies within. And it’s elixir is higher love, conscious love that makes our Gardens of Eden grow. Choose to nurture your whole being with what enhances life. What is inside, reflects outside. As above, so below. For crystal clear twenty twenty vision, change starts with the I.

Here’s to clarity in 2020, Happy New Year!

The Heart-mind Connection

heart-mindDid you know that the Chinese word, xīn means heart or mind, often translated to ‘heart-mind’. The ancient Chinese believed the heart was the center of human cognition. In the West, we are so prone to separate thoughts and feelings into different separate categories. Rationality trumps emotions and we loose sight of our intuition and intentions. Often when you listen to the mind more tension is created.

We spend so much time over analysing things, but the heart and mind really are one. When you feel, you think. When you think, you feel. You don’t really just think or just feel. Consider this for a moment. When one rationalises and looks at the pros and cons of something, you will notice if you dig a bit deeper that there’s an emotion behind that thinking.

So go a little deeper and start to listen to your heart and you’ll start to hear what it has to say. Your intuition and your intentions will start to become clearer and things will start to ease.

“When the heart & mind come together as one —in alignment. We, our souls get to live a full embodied life.” – Antoinette | NovoStellar

When the heart and mind start to act as one, coherence happens. Where there is coherence, there is harmony. Where there is harmony, we are freed up from stress, from chaos and even illness. When your path is clearer, you get to start creating, manifesting and living the life your heart and soul desires.

What would you do, if you genuinely, whole heartedly were free to do what you really wanted? If nothing was stopping you, and if the path was clear?

Now that is something to contemplate and meditate on. Sacred Cacao is a great heart opener that connects the heart and mind. If you ever get the opportunity to do a Sacred Cacao Ceremony, her wisdom is gentle. She invites you in to your heart and soul to discover the soul nurturing that awaits you. With much gratitude I get to work with her medicine.  She has been a gentle, blissful, heartful teacher to me and I hope she can be that and more for you too. If you go to my events page, you can see when the next Sacred Cacao Ceremony is.

In the meantime, find some time to yourself and maybe do some self care. Journalling can be a good way to empty the mind. Even if it’s list making or doodling and sketching all that is in you. Eventually when the monkey mind stops and all the things that were in your mind is on the paper, your heart then has space to start expressing what she wants you to know.

There is wisdom in you,  your essence knows what’s best for you. Start to listen.

An Easy Empaths Mantra

I fill up my cup first, until it overflows. And so it is.
I fill up my cup first, until it overflows. And so it is.


I thought I’d start blogging a bit about wellness. A good place to start is probably at the beginning. The beginning of the day that is. What I do when I wake up in the morning is I try to start each day with meditation. To ground and center, to gather myself and to start off on a good footing.

Earlier today I was googling Mala beads and learned how easy they are to use with Mantras and meditation. I did the mantra meditation without the Mala beads for a few minutes and it does work. So I came up with my own mantra to focus on for today.

 I fill up my cup first,
until it overflows.
And so it is ❤ 

For empaths, one of the top priorities is self-care. To do it for themselves before they start attending to others. Like the saying goes — “One cannot pour from an empty cup”.

So then the question is, ‘What can I do today to add to my wellbeing?’

For me, quiet mornings with a cup of tea, meditations & saying mantras helps. Setting the tone by being at peace first thing in the morning can help you through the day with ease and grace. So do carve out some time in your day to create the wellness you need. Take a few deep breaths, and let the body fill with ease.

How to meditate and chant with mantras

  1. You can use this mantra while taking in a long deep breath, saying in your head — ‘I fill up my cup first’.
  2. And then on a long slow exhale, say the second part in your head — ‘until it overflows’. Repeat Step 1 and 2 a few times. 

And if you are up for it, you can also use Mala beads & do this chant 108 times. Even if you do it a handful of times you’ll notice that your mental state shifts and also how your body relaxes and fills up with ease. Then, when you want to end; you can finish by saying — ‘And so it is’ and you’re done. 

Enjoy your day. 🙂
