Chaos, Order & Brexit

Earth-Heart-in-space

I’m laying in bed next to my sleeping little toddler girl. I was going to have a little nap but felt strongly inspired to write.

When I woke up this morning the result of the EU Referendum was on my mind. I was surprised finding out that Britain had voted to leave the EU. 95 % of my Facebook feed showed friends voting to Remain. Then I saw on the news that London had 60% votes for remain and 40% leave.

Having a look on my Facebook feed today I predominantly have been seeing angry or fearful posts. Rightfully so.

Altough I feel very surrendered to the whole situation. I believe that this is potentially a big wake up call! It’s time to change our thinking, how we react, our feelings and actions. We can no longer stay in our comfort zones.

I myself was born in South Korea, adopted to Sweden and have been living in London for the past 12-13 years. For a while now I call the world my home, not seperating myself from one place or the other. My faith gave me that gift of perception, but also my journey.

This is not a time to blame, this is a time for UNITY. Let’s stop wasting our time on judging and blaming. Instead it’s time to go deeper within, finding ways of healing the shadow parts of ourselves and taking action for what kind of life we want to live. What kind of world do we want for ourselves and our children?

There are many injustices going on in the world, a lot of pain, anger, sadness and hopelessness.

Let’s not repress these emotions with addictions anymore. Lately I’ve realised that if I can feel other people’s emotions that I meet or pass by, how much are the group consciousness emotions affecting me?

I then have to ask myself if I get affected by the emotions on a larger scale, what can I do to change things?

Although I see myself as always having been a searcher, my path to becoming more awake and conscious started 7 years ago. Back then my life became quiet chaotic, more on the inside than on the outside. It sent me deeper within and made me enquire more about myself and life.

I made it through and what followed was a ‘better’ life. I am more connected with myself and my family. I have a partner that I can share my passions with and a daughter that is happy and healthy. I work with things I’m passionate about and have more freedom and abundance, then ever before.

In the recent  Family Constellations course I attended we explored ‘Chaos and Order’. This is what the facilitator Yishai Gaster says:

“Every order or structure has a limited period in which it is good enough. At the end of this period, chaos will start surfacing usually as tension or crisis, and then we find through a process of chaos what new order unfolds.”

I have seen situations before when Chaos isn’t in fact a ‘bad’ thing even if many people may perceive it that way. Like the ‘Death’ card in Tarot, it’s a time for Change.

Many of us know that big changes are needed to change our planet and the future for our children.

This is from me a reminder to accept what has happened, surrender, then re-asses where we are in our lives and what we can do to ‘Be The Change’!

Many recent events in the Western world have caused people to go deeper into judgment and separation. The world doesn’t need more of that, what it needs is more UNITY and alignment with LOVE.

Let’s change the way we think to change the way we feel. Let’s unite and save our planet so we can create a better world for our children, animals and land.

Our ancestors risked their lives for us at some point further back in time. We have a chance to make the world a better place. Let’s come together to take that chance!!!

Why do we resist healing and ultimate wellbeing?

PicsArt_05-22-10.10.32

Although we’re aiming to feel better we may experience resistance such as delays, cancellations and tiredness due to our own unconscious mind, when we’re about to attend a treatment, workshop or course.

This often happens because of fear of feeling the deeply rooted emotions that often gets released during the healing session. It may also be because on some levels we identity with the emotions or the trauma subconsciously. We may also have an illusion that the emotions serve a purpose.

Many people may be unaware of the emotional baggage they still carry. Often the emotions and negative self-beliefs are ‘stored’ in the subconscious mind as a safety mechanism.

Until the person ‘carrying’ toxic emotions finds ways of releasing/detoxing them, they may experience reoccurring uncomfortable patterns. I prefer to use the term ‘uncomfortable’ since I don’t see them as negative, they are in fact symptoms of something needing our intention.

Toxic emotions such as shame, guilt, anger and sadness may be emotions that you felt when you were younger but not able to express or digest. They can then get stored as negative emotional energy and may manifest as mental or physical illnesses.

Unless you find a way to release this negative emotional charge, it can create blockages that keeps you away from living the life you want.

It can show up as an unhealthy relationship with yourself (destructive behaviour), the relationship with others, how you relate in the world and even as physical illness.

Therefore some Alternative Medical Treatments are recommended as they look at the issue from a Holistic viewpoint. They have used this approach in Eastern Medicine for centuries.

Even if you’ve been through traditional treatments talking through your issue, unless you find a way to ‘dig’ deeper and find emotional release and resolution you might not be able to get to the core of the issue.

It’s when you release emotional charge that stimulates the limbic system in the brain that you may feel a since of peace and lightness.

I myself do clearing of negative emotions, energies and self-beliefs on a monthly basis. One-to-one, through group work in courses, workshops and also by myself.

The changes I’ve been able to make in my life. Living happier, healthier and with closer, more loving relationships is due to all the self-work I’ve done over the past 7-8 years.

It’s an ongoing process which I find really powerful and that I feel very passionate about.

Finding the right Practitioner can be the difference between having a succesful Healing Session or not. I recommend using your gut feeling when choosing someone.

With love,

Maria

Full Moon – shifting a cocktail of ‘negative’ emotions

28892de6e845673c182a08d24914013d

 

Today I can really feel the full moon. I experienced a trigger moment that completely ungrounded me for quite some time, before I managed to become present and more grounded again.

Having my toddler daughter to look after whilst this is happening is both challenging, yet helpful. Harder to find space to process the emotions, but easier because I have to be present with her.

In the event I hosted yesterday I announced that I wanted to allow myself to really let myself feel the emotions coming up, instead of closing them off, comfort eating or distracting myself.

Letting go of protecting myself from my feelings and letting myself feel them. I want to be able to feel them so that they can guide my actions and/or healing process.

All these emotions feels quite overwhelming. My first sense is to get rid of them. Having allowed myself to stay with it, it doesn’t feel as overpowering anymore. I am stubbornly acknowledging them. The cocktail of toxic emotions, boiling under the surface. They are real and they are there.

They are a part of my journey and they won’t just leave. They are neither good or bad – they are emotions creating movements in my heart, mind, body and in my soul.

As I’m writing this after formally having admitted how I feel and acceptance of it all, taking responsibility for it, there’s a glimpse of joy and peace in my stomach.

There’s a light in the end of the tunnel.

I’m writing this as my daughter is having her nap so my time is limited. She will soon wake up, and when she does I choose to be there for her. No phone’s just her and me.

So I thank you for your time and hope that you’ve been able to take with you, a piece of magic, that you can use for yourself. Because magic is what it feels like, the process of changing a state of deep heaviness to a lighter state. Higher vibrational way of being and living.

Through this dialogue with myself, writing this blog post to share with you, I already feel better. Let’s call it emotional/energetic detox or self-healing.

Ok. I’m ready to meet the world again. Feeling a bit softer and a bit more open.

Feeling grateful having been able to create this shift within. Feeling more at peace.

The Ugly Duckling

il_fullxfull.273244573

I am back to share with you again! Motherhood took over. I will tell you more about that journey another time. Below I will share some quite private feelings and thoughts. I will let myself be vulnerable in this way and maybe some of you will recognise yourself in my story?

Tonight I’m having one of those sleepless nights. My mind is on overload. Not sure how I got reminded of this memory, but I felt like sharing it.

When I was a teenager I felt like an ugly duckling. Not so strange after growing up in a small Swedish city, looking very different from my peers as I was adoped from South Korea. As I grew older I learnt how to appreciate and love myself more.

Alongside looking different I also felt like ‘an ugly duckling on the inside’. I couldn’t get myself to ‘fit in’. After a few years in London I started finding more and more of people that seemed to be from the same planet/species as me. We were able to understand each other.

My intention is to continue being ‘me’, going even deeper within, travelling the world and explore all the gifts this planet has to offer me. Continue learning ancient knowledge and mixing it with new energies/ research/ techniques.

While I continue learning I will keep enjoying sharing and passing on these powerful truths/ practises to whoever is open minded enough to look past their fears/ ego/ mind/ judgment.

Bit by bit I realised the illusion I’d been living in, jumped into a different illusion, ‘spiritual snobbery’ as one of my friends calls it. I had to experience that too, before somewhat stepping out of ‘the matrix’.

Here I am experiencing it all, allowing myself to accept/ feel/ see/ express all of me and my world. In one way I feel re-born. Still finding my feet in this new reality I’ve woken up in. It’s a bit scary, although exciting! A whole new canvas to paint on.

This time around I feel determined, strong, get gentle, calm and vulnerable. As if my inner feminine and masculine have been balanced. I feel deeply rooted in my feminine energy. I have arrived!

I feel like I don’t have to go to war to get what’s mine or to protect myself. I can dance and just be who I am and everything else will fall in place.

A productive, high vibrational day attracting more abundance

To keep my partner and my vibration high today I made two different salads, orange, tea and coffee for breakfast.

Throughout the day we had apples, pineapple and Pineapple Frappuccino as snacks and drinks. I also allowed myself some digestive crackers with cheese and herbal tea even though it’s not that healthy.

The tea and coffee for breakfast can be discussed too, but then again I believe to keep things balanced especially in the beginning when you change diet. To be compassionate and kind with ourselves – one step at a time.

To clear space I dealt with the mountain of dish washing and clothes that needed ironing. It felt heavy to start but I pushed myself through and while doing that listened to some healthy brain food.

I’m now having a little break catching up with replies and updates.

Healthy food, allowing myself to have a treat, clearing spaces and listening to positive, uplifting, wisdom advice – it’s been a great day so far!

I’ve also been able to use my creativity to play around with pictures and inspiring information, which makes me feel really fulfilled.

Next on the list…meditation, carrots, more healthy brain food, dream planning and preparations for dinner.

Bring on the changes, I’m ready for more of the good stuff!!!Image

How thoughts, words and our energy may affect us and other people

How thoughts, words and our energy may affect us and people around us

I’m so sensitive to energy I can feel this straight away. Sometimes I catch myself in a negative space and when I do I look for a more positive conversation, go to the gym or do something else to re-balance myself, unless I’m looking for advice. I can also feel other people’s negative words or energy affecting me.

A tip is that the more grounded I am in myself, the less it affects me. I sometimes also make the other person aware of it if it happens a lot.

It doesn’t help them or me talking about negative things over and over. Sometimes it’s important to let it out and be able to get an opinion from another person, but a lot of times people are caught in unhealthy habits of complaining, judging and talking about miserable topics which keeps them and possibly people around them in a low vibration.

Notice how your thoughts, words and actions affect how you feel. If it can affect you it may affect others too. Take responsibility for how you feel and what vibe you share in this world.

What I’ve done to change my life

Image

Since my last post where I felt so determined to change I’ve been able to action a few things.
 
• I’ve had an Intuitive Coaching session where I got a wider understanding for potential blockages and what I can do to move past them. (With Matt Taylor)
 
• I booked a 3-day workshop in July learning about “Inner Sound & Voice”. (With Jill Purce)
 
• I also booked a week long retreat for this month, in Glastonbury “Healing Family & Ancestors – Ritual & Resonance”. (With Jill Purce)
 
• I went to a Fitness class with Marc Alamara at SkillTown a few days ago. His classes are intense but really good.
 
• I booked a swap with my friend Carolina Holzmeister and will receive a Full Body Massage in exchange for one of my modalities.
 
• I’ve been able to stay on top of replies in all shapes and forms much better than in the past.
 
There has possibly been more changes as well but these are the bigger changes I’ve made.
 
The focus for this week is my diet, exercise & stretching, clearing space at home, continue with a minimum of one blog post a week and getting myself started on a new project.
 
The picture above was taken by Aliona Adrianova about a week ago. It’s one of my new head shots that represents ‘the new me’.
 
…and more is coming!
