2017 what a year!

FB_IMG_1494649302038I know I am not alone as I reflect upon the year that was for 2017. My top three life changing realisations (lessons) is something I have often shared with others but not fully embraced myself before. But now I am and it is my time to finally walk the talk. Unconditional love, expectations and choosing change all go hand in hand while standing alone in their own significant way. As I journeyed through this year of climbing rugged mountains, falling into an abyss of thick forests and bobbing along with the ebb n flow of the ocean, I reached a higher level of awareness on my spiritual path, as a result of many soul-stirring experiences.

FB_IMG_1497563364553Unconditional love begins and ends with love for self and for your Creator. Once you have this aligned within your mind, body, heart and soul then you can share the love unconditionally too! What does unconditional love mean for me? To take care of the vessel that carries my mind, my heart and my soul. Nourish it every day. Believe in myself, no matter the choices I make. Love me, know my worth. Have faith, trust and let go of all that no longer serves my highest good, including people, places and things but take with me the lessons and the love and leave the rest behind. Be open to giving and receiving. Do all that makes my soul soar. Live in peace. All of this and more is what unconditional love is for me!

From my experience, expectations only lead to disappointment, especially when created from ego. I wonder though, do we all have expectations of self and others? I have always had a high benchmark on myself and that is okay for me as it keeps me motivated, challenged and ticking along. When I stop having them on myself, I find I flounder away at this journey called life. I’ve fully realised, when I place mine on others, ultimately my ego mind is playing games, egging me on and edging God out! That’s when it all comes tumbling down and disappointment kicks in. Let go of all expectations and see what evolves, surprises are such a gift when living life!22729165_1132127090257604_5709695074588091258_n

Choosing change is scary but so is staying the same. I can’t express enough the gratitude I hold firm for the changes I have chosen across this year. What has become so very clear for me is, there is nothing wrong with encouraging self and others to constantly look at our own lives to see where changes can be made by self, for self and our highest good, singularly and collectively. When you place the expectation unfairly on others to make changes and they choose not to, what do you do then?

23130897_1482576971854827_3121464318395973137_nYou choose what is best for your highest good – by acknowledging, accepting this is their choice and let it go or respecting yourself enough to walk away. None of these choices are that simple or easy but in the end you have to do what is right for you!

With gratitude 2017, I say ‘thank you’ for these lessons and the blessings that came from them, for they are equally priceless!

Are you aware of your gifts?

healingOver the years I have all too often not even thought about, acknowledged or given thanks to my Creator for the unlimited gifts that have been given to me, which ultimately help me out continuously on my life’s journey. You may well be asking right now, “what gifts are you talking about?”

As it happened, I was guided just recently to prepare and speak of these gifts at one of my meditation & spiritual development groups. When the guidance came to me from my spiritual realm to “speak and share about your gifts” I questioned this guidance by thinking, “seriously, this group is not about me?” Just before I sat down at my laptop to prepare my notes and the guided meditation I would share, I stood in front of my bookcase in my therapy room and the one book that seemed to flash at me (also another sign of guidance) was by Sonia Choquette – Grace, Guidance & Gifts. In this book lay the inherent message that it wasn’t “my gifts” it was “all of our spiritual gifts”.

Our spiritual gifts are indeed unlimited. As I listened to Sonia’s guided meditation titled “Gifts”, which comes with this book on a CD, I actually chuckled at the mention she made, that we might not recognize “the ability to disrupt” as a gift, but in actual fact it is! So too, I feel “the art of procrastination” is one of my greatest gifts, and now instead of thinking of it as a negative behavior that I am wanting to change, I am accepting of it as a gift that seriously does at times, serve it’s purpose.

Oh so often I have spoken about and reflected upon things like patience, humor, order, listening, leadership, teaching, nurturing and labelled them as learned behaviors and life lessons. In effect these are all simply, our spiritual gifts. Together with generosity, inspiration, faith, beauty (internal & external), healing energy, compassion, service, music, silence, courage, friendship, truth and inner peace, all of which comes through each and every one of us, from Spirit. In essence though, the one gift that stands out for me from all of the above and oh so many more is “the holy breath of life”.

VLUU L100, M100  / Samsung L100, M100To quote Sonia Choquette: “Breath is life. Breath is Spirit. Without breath there is no life. Don’t resist or hold your breath. You have been given the gift of breath from your Divine creator. Allow the gift of breath, of life, to course through your being.”

Our gifts don’t stop here at these twenty odd that I have mentioned as they are limitless to your uniqueness. Give yourself a gift right now and allow yourself to sit quietly, tune out from all the worldly distractions and outside noises and listen to any meditation to connect in with your higher self, to acknowledge, accept and extend gratitude to your creator for the abundance of incredible gifts that have been given to you too.

 

Are you a creative manifestor?

Snapshots of how creative vision works for me!

Over the years I have worked consistently with creative visualization and manifestation and my results have been to date very significantly successful. Here are a few of my outcomes and these in no way account for all the little desires that I have asked for and abundantly received throughout my life.

36crestwood1Many years ago now, in the early 1990’s after walking away from a small business that didn’t work, I wondered if I would ever own a home. In 1996, I went into partnership with my best friend and we built a home as tennants in common. In 2000, a second joint venture was drawn up and built, resulting in a beautiful home to enjoy for many years till sold in late 2013. At the time of building this home, we as the owners declared to each other that this would be our retirement investment and we set a price to which we wanted to achieve when it sold. Incredibly so, we attempted to sell it a few times since 2004 as changes occurred, and it never would. Each time we just couldn’t understand why until it finally did sell obviously at the right time, for the right reasons and for our highest good, resulting in receiving $13k more than the price we set way back in 2000 when it was built. As is always the case, be careful what you wish for as it may well be just what you get or better!

Arriving in Auckland 2013At the end of 2006, after working in Auckland, New Zealand for a couple of years, I returned to Australia. The opportunity to work here was a result of job redundancy in 2004 which I saw as an absolute gift. For it was while I was living here then, experiencing a wonderful working holiday, that I began albeit not in earnest to start my writing journey. I voiced to the winds which carried my wishes to the Universe as I sailed away, “one day I will return and make this beautiful country my home”. I never in my wildest dreams thought it would be so soon. In 2013 I returned by ship. Travelled for 3 months soaking up the beauty of New Zealand and finally decided to nestle in Auckland while endeavouring to establish myself practicing my therapy, following my writing passions and truly serving my life purpose. The gifts and guidance the Universe presents is truly a blessing in disguise, of course only if it is seen and accepted with gratitude.

In 2009, I began creating my “Soulmate’s Wish List”. As I evolved on my spiritual journey, so too did my list and it ended up over two pages of bullet points, reflecting not only my own values and beliefs but also what was important to me characteristically of another spiritual being who I wanted as a compliment to me in a loving, committed relationship. I printed, folded and placed this list into a little organza pouch and pasted it into the relationship corner of one of my creative vision boards, along with photos of mature couples, rings and many other aspects important to a loving and committed relationship. My heart’s desire was out there with the Universe and my intention was set to attract the perfect soulmate for me. Finally the Universe had sourced and presented to me, a soulmate, the one who ticked all of the points on my wish list. My patience, together with asking, trusting, having faith, believing and by visualizing and feeling what it would be like to have the perfect mate for me in my life, paid off quite a few years later!

My 2012 Vision boardIn early 2012, for my 50th birthday a trip of a lifetime came to fruition. The one I had dreamed of and thought about since I was 18 years of age, taking 3 months off to travel the world. What was originally going to be only a 2 week stay in Paris, began with a 47 night cruise from Sydney, Australia to Southampton, England; a week of sightseeing around London and surrounds with the highlight – staying at The Ritz; followed by a week in Paris and surrounds;  training it across Europe to Lucerne, Switzerland for a couple of days; then onto Rome, Italy for a week, then spending 2 weeks in a villa in Tuscany, Italy visiting as much as I could in this space of time while celebrating and sharing my birthday with eleven family and friends joining me all the way from Australia and New Zealand; and finally wrapping up this incredibly joyous trip that was a long time manifesting, with 2 weeks around Ireland with family. Wow, a vision that did indeed pay big dividends!

My last day at ssAfter returning from this incredible trip in mid 2012, I made the decision that I would leave the Corporate world by the end of the year and take full flight in following my life purpose to write, to further my skills and practice my therapy work on a full time basis. I figured out a budget of what I would need financially to support myself for a year while I travelled some more, do the upskilling I needed and eventually find a new place to call home. I had written the amount I desired in my journal way before I had even left on my trip and 3 weeks after my return a big restructue was happening in the workplace and my team were offered the opportunity of taking a voluntary redundancy. I didn’t hesitate for I saw this as an absolute gift, an opportunity to finally follow my purpose. Lo n behold the paperwork was submitted, a calculation of payout was given back to me and it was the exact same amount as what I had written in my journal with a positve difference of $734. By the time I had finished up 2 months later in August 2012, I had received an additional amount that would support me for a further 4 months! Once more the Universe had responded to my asking in a way that I never dreamed or imagined.

houseWhile I was travelling around New Zealand 2013 with my best friend, I jotted in my journal the type of house that would be suitable to co-own, either to live in or have as a holiday destination or even use to stay in while taking my house view 2therapy on the road or possibly even retire in down the track. I made this statement, “what is the point in coming all the way to this magnificent country which has a view at every twist and turn, and not have one from your own front door? house view 3At the very least a water view with hills and dales, or a mountain view, elevated, white, quaint and cosy andhouse view minimum three bedrooms and that it is in great living condition”.  12 months later a house fitting this description but with oh so much more, was purchased.

While I am truly passionate about creative visualization and manifesting all that your heart truly desires, the road to receiving it isn’t always the straight high road to success. As a human being we often take the low road as a challenging detour, sometimes with lots of laughs and other times with tears of frustration. In the end though and with out a doubt in my mind, you always end up with something equal to or better than what you asked for in the beginning, of course as long as it is for your highest good and is not for the detriment of others too, the Universe will find a way to deliver it to you. So the key to manifesting is setting the intention, asking, letting it be to manifest and leaving the how and when alone, believing it is coming and that you are worthy and deserving of receiving, trusting and feeling it as though it is already so, and open your arms to receive it with guidance, grace and gratitude!

How my healing happened!

What is Spiritual healing?

VLUU L100, M100  / Samsung L100, M100Firstly, let me just say that we are all born spiritual healers. It’s whether we choose to acknowledge and work with the source of this gift that makes the difference. By choosing to connect with your Source, you become the channel or instrument of this incredible divine power, and spiritual healing happens as a result of surrendering to the Divine.

Everything about us as human beings is energy and yes spiritual healing is often thought of or considered to be energy healing by many. Hence there are overlapping similarities affecting your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels of life. The practices may well be very different of an energy healer or the same as a spiritual healer, it does not matter for it is what the healer and the client lean towards that matters.

In essence, as a spiritual healer, I am very aware that I am an instrument, a vessel, the vehicle for receiving Divine intervention from my source. When working with my clients I also am very aware that I am being divinely guided with the healing words I speak, the crystals I choose to use for each session, together with the energy source that flows through my healing hands at the point of touch (if and when guided to do so). I have no traditional techniques, I only know that through my belief and the willingness of my clients to also believe that sharing the gifts I have been blessed with helps with their healing of illness or disease, and / or become relatively pain free from injury or ailments. There is definitely something to be said for the beauty in believing, and I am a true believer.

healing.jpgWhat you are likely to experience!

Every individuals experience is unique and there is no right or wrong to how healing happens, for it is indeed a blessed miracle. I can only share with you my own experience of the intense relief that I experienced from a spiritual healing session.

For a good 9 months, I was experiencing intense pain in my right knee. Walking upstairs was very difficult and at night while sleeping the pain would wake me periodically. General walking was just bearable, however there was a constant clicking noise that just got louder and louder as the days went on. Pain medication and therapy was a temporary relief only, so I embarked on the journey of tuning into the healing power from within. I connected in with my source, I meditated on the pain, I questioned its purpose for being in my body, I became the pain within my knee and as I came to the realisation of why it was even present, I then accepted it, forgave myself for the part I played in causing it to happen and released it with gratitude. Later that afternoon of doing this healing session, a girlfriend of mine who was staying with me at the time, brought to my attention the fact that my knee wasn’t making that dreadful clicking noise and I was walking around limp free. It was only in that moment, that I fully realised that my knee was indeed healed and completely pain and noise free. To this day since April 2014, I remain pain free with no clicks to be heard of in my right knee!

If you are willing to connect with your source too and this is an avenue of healing that you are wanting to experience, then I invite you to Contact me and allow me to be your instrument, your guide, your vessel to help you heal and overcome obstacles that are preventing you from living your life in alignment with your true spirit.

2015 the year that was!

2016As the last day of 2015 unfolds, I took some time out to reflect over what was for me in this past year.

What an incredible year of beautiful blessings of which many began as challenges. I know that I wouldn’t be alone either when I say this.

It’s been a year of working trips & travels, setting up a practice in Auckland, New Zealand, taking my therapy services on the road to Otautau and reaching far and wide into all of Southland, New Zealand, bringing on board a Reiki Healing Haven master practioner, attending the monthly Mt Eden Wellbeing Fairs, spending quality time with friends and family, further developing my skills and knowledge through courses & seminars, helping others to re-experience their past lives, working with the power of one’s mind to change the way it thinks about what was holding them back, enabling many to let go of what was, planning and organizing Meditation & Spiritual Development Meetup Groups and ultimately bringing light and love back into many lost and disconnected souls lives once more, and for them to come to know their own true self-worth…..WOW!

For me, pushing forward through the fog and into the clearing, riding the roller coaster called life to connect with and help as many souls as possible, has been the most rewarding and at times overwhelming blessings bestowed upon me. The greatest gift is realizing I have found my soul’s purpose and that I am serving my gift as it continues to serve me. I am an Alternative Healing Therapist practicing Past Life Regression, Hypnotherapy and Spiritual Healing while continuing to fulfill every day, my greatest of passions, My Writing journey!

Live on YouTube!

Moving into the 21st century!

youtube image purpleWell I have done it. Times are a changing for me. After much encouragement from my business coach and publisher, I decided it was high time I moved into this century by creating  my own channel and uploading video’s to yet another avenue on multimedia. I am now live on YouTube!

The day I reconciled myself to the fact that I really did need to put a voice and face to ThereseElizabeth – Alternative Healing Therapist, was a day to contend with! It was another way to enhance my website and other media avenues that I use, such as Pinterest, Facebook, Google, Twitter, and Linkedin.

Short video’s are a great way to connect with people, promote and show the world who you are and what you do, apparently! So I took heed, advice and warning and plunged into an abyss of staring into a camera, trying to be a la natural with ease and grace! Did it work? Well that I will leave up to you to comment on, my mighty followers!

So here goes for my first round of live entertainment! I hope you enjoy them and if you are drawn, you might like to subscribe to “My Channel” after you check out the short video’s below. Rest assured there will be more recordings both voice and live coming up for meditations, hypnotherapy, past life regression, creative visualization and lots more, so stayed tuned!  Thanks for your time and taking a look at me.
