The Earth Moved As I Expand Into My Infinite Self!

new moon feb 2015I know I said I would write a post on dance this week, but there is too much going on that I would like to talk about. Last week I was exploring being triggered and challenging the programming that wanted to catastrophise the possible outcomes. It ended up being fine and now I just need to be ok with uncertainty and to keep doing things that I love and especially loving me. That doesn’t however stop me from being affected by the planets, or so it would seem! We just had a New Moon on the cusp of Aquarius and Pisces, it heralded the beginning of the Chinese New Year. Haven’t had a chance to check out what that is all about but I think it’s the year of the sheep or goat.

Mystic Mamma said that it meant true fundamental change , and I do know that Pisces is emotional and watery. Where I live we’ve had a cyclone and then a big storm bringing us tons of rain so it seemed very watery indeed, I got all excited tonight when I looked up into the sky and could see stars! It’s been quite a few days since we saw anything but clouds and I am in the hills so we got mist too. Very Mists of Avalon!

So there was the rain and that seemed a bit epic even though the cyclone kept being downgraded. But the real dramatic conclusion to the weekend came as my Beloved and I drove down the long steep driveway that leads down to our dance venue. It’s called Worldview and has views to the coast, it truly does feel as if you can see the world from that place. So here we are going down the driveway when my Beloved stops the car about a third of the way down. It took both of us a moment or two to process what was in front of us, the huge presence of earth and busted trees. All of a sudden our forward momentum was completely halted and it was very clear that we were not going to be running a dance that night after all.

Not our earthslide but you get the idea! Much greener in my part of the world.

The interesting thing is that on some  level I wasn’t entirely surprised, our theme was “Songs for the Earth” and here we were faced literally with the element of Earth. Seems that the Mother didn’t want us to do our dance last Sunday, we did a journey ourselves instead and I received a big vision about taking our dance out into the wider community. Doesn’t mean we won’t keep dancing close to home but it is something we really enjoy and would like to share with as many people as possible. There is a part of me that is a bit confronted by this notion but I am determined to explore the possibilities that spring up in the wake of this vision. Or at least take the first exploratory step in the direction of this vision, if I focus on the steps one at a time I won’t get overwhelmed and the part of me that is a bit scared will cope much better.

There is massive change moving deeply within me and if I manage it well it may well bring some very positive shifts and changes into the life that my Beloved and I are creating together. So plan one step at a time, love myself and what I do, and remember to laugh as much as possible, a recipe for a happy and fulfilling life!

May all of you out there be happy and well, love and blissings to you all!

2015 Is All About Transformation And Change.

Ecstatic Dance SilhouetteOne thing is quite sure about this journey through a physical incarnation, as we expand into our fullness there are many opportunities to practice new understandings. That’s if you happen to be paying attention, and why wouldn’t you in this marvelous and magical creation that is the planet Gaia! As a matter of fact the next theme for our Ecstatic Dance is “Songs of the Earth”. so my Beloved and I are in the process of exploring this notion in the form of a sonic landscape. How people choose to move through it is their choice, a mirror of where they are in their journey. More on ecstatic dance next week but if you would like to check out details on our next dance here is the link to our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/malenydance/

I have been feeling strong energies since the summer solstice of 2014 and it just keeps getting stronger as we move through the early months of 2015. I’m no expert on astrology so when I want to know more about what I’m feeling I often have a look at Mystic Mamma: http://www.mysticmamma.com/wiping-the-slate-clean-astrology-for-february-2015-by-sarah-varcas/ We have two new moons in February and the one that is coming in on 18/19 is on the cusp of Aquarius and Pisces. I know a bit about Aquarius as it is my sun sign and this moon is all about commitment to fundamental change.

Aquarius

I’ve noticed old beliefs and patterns of behaviour being massively challenged already and as such they can be very uncomfortable indeed. This happened for me a week and a half ago and I had the opportunity to watch my reactions as I was very triggered by an incident that occurred. Then there was a waiting period where I didn’t know if I would have to deal with it the next week or not. I tuned in and was told that it wouldn’t happen again but I watched my mind doing its best to catastrophise possible outcomes. A book I’ve been reading about a near death experience was incredibly helpful as I was reminded to focus on loving myself and what I do. My mind would try to fall into the old pattern and each time I noticed this I replaced it with thoughts of how much I love what I do. It was particularly interesting to notice how attached I felt to the negative projections into the future.

So I’ve decided to really focus on this tendency for my mind to run into negative grooves, and when I notice that it’s happening, to switch gears into a more positive frame. Just been tested again actually, had an email to do with work that has set the fear in my belly moving once again. So I’m sitting here and focusing on loving myself as I encourage my mind to explore the positive outcomes, which are in fact much more likely to occur anyway! It would be easy to go into overwhelm at this point so I will give myself a bit of time with this issue and then let it go for the evening.

Ahhhh for a magic wand ! Mmmmmmmm………oh that’s right, I am the magic wand!! And so are you, and you and you………… lets all be the marvelous creatures that we truly are, much love and blissings to you all.

 

A Psychic Reading With Kerry.

brain intention energyI generally begin a reading with the question, “Is there anything particular you would like to focus on? Some folks have very specific questions they want answered while others may simply be looking for a little direction or guidance. Curiosity or a sense that having a reading might be a good idea can also draw people to seek me out. If they don’t have a specific issue or question then I often say to them to, “Hold the question ‘what do I need to know'” in their mind’s eye, as they handle the cards. So having some kind of intention is a very good place to start, it’s something that is helpful in any process where you are exploring the inner realms.

The next step is for me to open myself up to spirit as I ask for how many cards are required in the spread. Then when they have been chosen I lay them out intuitively, the pattern is rarely exactly the same. If I am doing a reading online or by phone I am a little less formal with the cards and will often pull them out as I go, whichever the medium the message is the same. The cards are a focus  but what you get is much more than simply an explanation of the meaning of a particular card. The same card can turn up in different people’s readings and even though it has a certain ‘feel’ to it, what I say to each person may be quite different. I don’t ‘think’ about it with my mind, I allow my intuitive self to open and allow the information to come rolling in. It is a capacity that we all have but like anything the more that you practice it the better you get.

From this point the reading will take shape according to many factors, in a way each reading I do has its own life and shape. I may do most or all of the talking, or my client may have lots of questions about what is coming up. Even if I am doing most of the talking it is very much an interactive process with a deeper exchange occurring  below the surface level of words and the conscious mind. You can ask as many questions as you like, more and more I find strong and clear responses coming through and if there is any uncertainty about which way something might go that is usually clear as well. I always try to be as honest as I can about what I am saying, if it looks tough then I do call a spade a spade!

I’ve also done quite a few readings for couples, some newly weds and they always seem quite delighted with the process. Luckily I didn’t see any break ups for any of those couples, but if it was there I would find a way to convey the message. Even the challenges in my readings can be seen as opportunities to expand and grow, sometimes letting go can be a part of that. We might indeed need to consider ending a relationship or friendship, sometimes we are letting go of our own limiting beliefs. I am reminded of the chinese character for crisis, there are two symbols, one means danger and the other opportunity.

My Story As A Reader: I’m Not Psychic She Said!

A younger me in my mid to late thirties when I used to do markets and festivals with my mother, being a hippy is something I haven't given up!

A younger me in my mid to late thirties when I used to do markets and festivals with my mother, being a hippy is something I haven’t given up!

I’d like to tell you a bit about how I got into doing psychic readings, an interesting direction for someone who as a teenager used to say, “Oh no I’m not psychic, that’s mum’s department.” It all began when my mother gave me the Mythic Tarot when I was 17 years old, a year or so after my father killed himself. I was pretty messed up as you can imagine and I spent many all nighters trying to make sense of all the confusion whirling around inside of me. The tarot cards quickly became an important tool for me and I did reading after reading for myself, in this way I came to know the cards.

In my early twenties I began doing readings for friends and over time I began to make more and more sense of what the cards were telling me. All of a sudden a pattern would reveal itself and I could see how the cards in a layout were connecting with each other. Eventually I became confident enough to start charging people for readings and judging by the responses I got the readings were pretty accurate. My mother always used to say that I gave an overview of the current situation in a nutshell, with the possibilities for the future radiating out from that place.

Over the years there has been a continuing evolution and expansion of my intuition that is directly related to my obsessive focus on self-healing. As I have healed layer upon layer of trauma I have become a much clearer channel for spirit to flow through. It’s a bit like cleaning a saucepan that you’ve burnt something in, at first it seems like it will never get clean no matter how long you spend scrubbing it. But if you persist and keep coming back to it there is a magical moment when you can see that it will come good, the darkness begins to disappear and the possibility of wholeness is all lit up.

A couple of years ago I got a kick up the bum from spirit in the form of a client who I connected with quite briefly, he encouraged me to get rid of the cards completely! But it wasn’t about me slavishly following his suggestions, his role was to shake me up and to get me thinking about the way I was doing my readings. Over thirty-three years of using the mythic tarot I had become so familiar with the cards that I had fallen into a bit of a rut. So I got a new pack of cards and I completely let go of the particular layout that I had been doing for so long. Now I channel through how many cards we need and the layout follows no set pattern, it’s interesting to see how the way the cards are placed adds extra meaning to it all.

At the same time I have been reaching that place where bits of me have become very clear and it’s so much easier for the information to come through, I simply step out of the way! It’s easier for me and generally makes for more accurate readings too. My studies in counselling and my work as a crisis counsellor have also helped enormously in the way that I communicate the information that comes through for my clients. In fact I am enjoying doing readings now more than ever and have decided to make it an even stronger focus in my working life.
