Know Thyself

We see others through the perception and veil of our own life experiences. So can we ever really know others as they truly are? Next time you hear yourself describing another, listen to what you are saying for it will tell you more about who you are, than who they are.

Rainbow Meditation

Breathe in white light – breathe out white light and imagine you are sitting under a vibrant rainbow. Allow each colour to flow over and through you: red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple.

Breathe the colours in one by one and sit in each colour as long as you need to. Let them all pass through and dissolve away into the light around you.

Feel yourself move back into your day with added energy, balance and creativity and know the treasure at the end of the rainbow resides within you.

The Sun Shines

Take a moment today - quieten your thoughts and your breathing and close your eyes.

Know the sun and your soul are always shining, the birds and your heart are always singing and the flowers and your path are always opening up.

You don't have to action these things into being, you just have to turn up - look around and feel into life that surrounds you in infinite ways.

Notice what is there and be grateful, feel love, instead of noticing what is not there, which will make you feel separate and fear. All is well, Denise♥

The Rainbow Bridge

We often think so many conditions need to line up for us to feel love, when all is truly required is for us to step over that idea into who we are in this moment.

Fear will separate and cause us to create more conditions that must be fulfilled before we can be in love. Imagine a rainbow bridge that spans the conditions, the fear - take a step, a leap of faith and cross over the limitations. You have just entered a new way of being, you have just taken control of your life, you are now creating in love. It is as it is. Namaste, Denise♥

Yesterday I had the honour and privilege to teach meditation to a beautiful group of teen girls and their mentors. What a wonderful reflection of my inner teen, illuminating my dreams and desires that I had forgotten about. Thank you, for this teacher has much to embrace and learn.

♥Just a little reminder, due to Anzac day, Meditation class is not on tonight. Here is a little meditation for your day♥ 

Become aware and sense your body…..connect deeply with your breathing, imagine you become your breath as it moves into its own natural rhythm. Allow thoughts to float by in your mind, without connecting to them… allow all to be as it is……. ♥♥

Today brings stirrings of my Father's inner journey of peace and a deeper realisation why my studio resides within the walls of a building called The Valhalla. Dad fought in the second world war and often marched in the Anzac parade. Even though he always told me he fought for freedom and peace these two things seem to elude him.

Searching for something, he took myself and the family along on his journey. I thank him for the adventures that moved me out of my comfort zone, forcing me to dig deep into my fears and face them - not always easy or comfortable and I often went there kicking and screaming, however it did lead me to ask different questions of life that lead me to where I am today. Here I can see Dad laid the foundation for Peace and Freedom in my life and generation Each generation comes already with what the previous generation wanted. In gratitude and love I honour all our ancestors for all they experienced for the expansion of our lives and creation.

Let us rest awhile in Valhalla from the warring factions of ourselves, battle worn and scarred by the projection of our own wounds to the world outside of us. Rest and heal, allow your soul and body to transform - moving you to your spirit. When you are ready allow the Celestial Rainbow to take you where ever you will, knowing you are sheltered and loved by Yggdrasil the great world tree that links all.

Crop Circles

Like all symbols, sacred sites and sacred geometry, crop circles seem to work on a subtle level awakening, stirring something deep with in us, a remembrance of whom we truly are. Whether they are formed by sound, earth energies, light, winds, humans or aliens when I see and feel them I am reminded that “What the caterpillar sees as the end, we see as a butterfly.” There is so much more we are yet to feel and see, allow yourself to dream…

When a caterpillar, with its limited sight and voracious appetite has gorged itself enough, it will wrap itself up, dissolving all attachments to what it used to be, in order for it to find its highest potential.

As I meditate in preparation for Teaching Reiki 2 today. I am reminded to have fun, be present in the moment and feel my way through life. Let the moment decide your response and may every response be love - For the meaning of life is to give it meaning, in whatever form you choose it to be. Om Shanti, Denise♥

Mother Earth, Father Sky

Allow yourself to connect to what inspires and illuminates your joy and love – information is just information, it does not matter where it comes from.

Take what feels right for you and throw the rest out. Today say the words "I am loved." Close your eyes and imagine you place your hands upon the earth, lean your back against a tree or lie upon the earth and look up at the sky.

Allow the energy of the words "I am loved" to move gently through your heart, body and mind. Feel love filling you, as your whole body and spirit eases into a state of Oneness. From the depths of your soul a profound love, grace and gratitude honours the relationship you have with Mother Earth and Father Sky - all the elements, light and love surround and flow through you.

This amazing love you give and receive nourishes and sustains you. Namaste, Denise♥

New Moon in Taurus

NEW MOON IN TAURUS April 21 AUST EST 5.19pm GMT 7.19am, PDT 12.19am.
The New Moon gives you an opportunity to dive into your richness and begin anew. As the Sun and the Moon come together a new seed in born within. Allow the energy of Tauru...s to ground and integrate the experiences of your life. At the heart of all experience is unconditional love and it is time to unwrap your experiences - tear off the wrapping and find the gift.

Feel the grounding energies of Mother earth as she embraces you with love and grace - you can do this anywhere - in nature, a back yard, a nature strip, a pot plant or visualisations. Feel the new moon illuminating your inner peace, all is fine, you are safe and your path is obstacle free, place one foot in front of the other and be who you are.

Know you have great worth - for the Universe loves and values every part of you, for it sees the gift, the unconditional love in your heart. Your job is to see you through the eyes of the Universe.

If you are reading this you are a pioneer - you are moving into new territory, forging a path into a new way of being. Decide from this moment forward that the outside world will not affect you, instead affect the world with your love and peace as you walk a new path. Be who you are, for you have something unique and wonderful to share with the world.♥

Zen Garden

Midway upon the journey of our life I found myself within a forest dark, for the straightforward pathway had been lost.~ Dante.

 If you are feeling lost, stop, get your bearings, be still and look within.
♥Take a breath and feel into your, perhaps your heart, your belly or simply the very centre of yourself. Here you find a point of light, a seed. Be with that seed in this moment and feel the multi-dimensional, ever expanding, creative essence of you. As you inhale feel yourself retreat to your seed, the still point within you. As you exhale know that you are always blossoming, always bearing fruit always creating ……... a new path opens up…. continue your journey...♥

Open your heart to give and receive

If you constantly give to others and don’t allow yourself to receive, you will always be separate from whom you truly want to be. Giving and receiving happen in the same moment they are not separate, it is happening whether you let it in or... not.

If you hold it away from you, you disrupt the flow and will feel uncomfortable. This uneasy feeling is a message to prod you into a new way of being, it is not, as often thought by your inner critic that you have done something wrong or that you are not enough. When you take the prod as a message and not a punishment, you will stop taking things personally.

Once you let receiving into your life you will allow everything you desire to manifest. Allow all to be as it is and you will feel soft and balanced, in a space where love and passion inspire you to give, live, create and receive. We are all a part of whom we have met and dream to be. All is well, Denise♥♥♥

I will be at my favourite bookshop in Sydney today - offering Soul inspired readings. Come and say hello on this beautiful autumn day, you may also like to check out the latest deck of oracle cards that I am featured in - Wisdom of the Golden Path. This is one of many oracle card decks by Toni Carmine Salerno where my "How to use the cards" is included in the accompanying book. 

What is a Soul Inspired Reading?
 A soul inspired reading is an opportunity to connect with your Soul/Higher self, to gain feel and see your life from a higher perspective through the energy of love and not the distractions of your personality.
Each reading is unique. It is a creative unfolding process, bringing forth information, ideas and love. I combine my intuitive insight with Tarot and Oracle cards, empowering you with information from your higher self. You will Feel empowered, energised, healed and hopeful, as I guide you in reconnecting to your inner being, wisdom, creativity and love.
 I also offers my readings at all other times at The Mystical Tree
A time will come when your innermost voice will speak to you, saying: “This is my path: here I shall find peace. I will pursue this path, come what may.”

 Relax, be still… Allow yourself to relax as you float in the ocean of infinite love. ...Just rest and know you are sustained by this great ocean of strength and of infinite peace. Your Higher self, angels, guides, loved ones and the whole Universe see you as love, as your truth, as the beautiful soul that you are – in this moment, in this place - see your self as they do…. no judgment , just waves of pure unconditional love... in this stillness feel and hear the whispers of your heart. Namaste Denise♥

The Journey

My journey allows all experiences some I get, some I don't, some are indescribable and beyond me at this moment. I may never know what some things mean, maybe someday someone will explain these things and maybe that person is you.

What I do know is that I am in awe, I feel so privileged to be here experiencing life and for the most part "The longer I live and the more knowledge I acquire, the less I realise I know."

One thing I have learnt that is a big truth to me is - "The emergence of my true Spiritual Self shows herself through any place within me of least resistance. It feels like flood gates opening as my Life Force breaks free of what I have been told I should believe." This often shows itself in the physical world as tears and I let them flow to wash away the old - so I can see through new eyes, revealing another truth - "At the heart of all is love." Be you, Om Shanti, Denise

Thank you for awakening to an expanded view of you, for this inspires me so. You are both physical and non-physical in nature - you are multi dimensional, spanning many realities that you have been encouraged and trained to ignore.

The manipulation of truth is only possible when you are afraid of your own power. You have the inherent right and duty to design and create your life. Today, do or think something different - see yourself as a pioneer preparing for a new interpretation of reality. All is well, Denise♥♥♥

Transformation continues as you live each moment of your life – you are becoming more with each experience, expanding into the infinite, moving beyond perceived limitations. What holds you back is the illusion of your projected shadow. Love it, embrace it for it is you, and allow all of you to become one. Be who you are and be free. As it is, Denise♥

You Are Faith

I feel blessed for all the amazing experiences and people who have graced my life and for reminding me "We are a part of all that we have met." I now surrender the past to the past, whatever has been has been, I let go - release all to the past. I surrender it all so I can be reborn with each step I take. I let go of my attention to reality and enter a state beyond time and space into an ocean of oneness and expand further into who I truly am.

Place your hands at you heart in a prayer position take a deep breath and call all of you to this moment to this place in front of your heart - your heart opens like a rosebud gently unfolding. Feel yourself being reborn - your divine wisdom, love and power unfolding, shining forth upon the path of your amazing life.

You are already enlightened it is only the belief that you are not and have to do something to find it, that holds you away from the eternal you. Jesus reminded us that “The Kingdom of Heaven is Within Us” - look within, feel within, know thyself and the Christ consciousness will flow through you, for it is you. Let go and be you - for you are the light of the Universe.

We are multi-dimensional beings and all things happen in this moment, so it seems possible we can be at any place at any time, the problem is allowing our mind to truly believe this. Once we break free of the confines of our beliefs, anything is possible – Faith is a knowing, a feeling, the evidence you can’t see, don’t swap faith for the evidence you think you can see. As it is, Brightest Blessings, Denise♥

Full Moon In Libra

FULL MOON IN LIBRA, April 7th AUST EST 5.19am, April 6th GMT 7.19pm, PDT 11.19am.
A full moon brings about completion, release and celebration, Illuminating your inner world and deepest desires. Feel the energy of this Libra Moon highlight... and transform old patterns and fears, allowing yourself to be the love you are. As you heal you will become more intimate with you, seeking a balance between the needs of the self and the needs of another.

Bathe in the light of the moon and feel a state of equilibrium become you. Honour and love your physical and non-physical self, the body, mind and spirit . Allow them all to move into balance as you realise all have equal importance. You are not your mind, you are not your body and you are not your spirit - you are all of these, a beautiful combination that the Universe celebrates as you. Feel this and celebrate the amazing relationship you have with you - for this is the most important relationship you will ever experience and everything else in this reality is a reflection of that. All is one.

Meditation Class - Power Animals

Meditation Gathering - coming together to feel our natural state of being, in a space of allowing all to be as it is. Tonight 7pm, $15. - This week we will be working with our Power Animals.
* please note -There will be no class on Good friday  

 In many ancient cultures humans were energetically linked to special animals, often called their power animals. The energy of the animals reflect our instinctual nature, allowing us to draw on their skills and abilities.

 Together the animal and human form a co-creative bond that assists each other in healing, reminding us we are all connected and interconnected - wisdom and love are always around us, contained in everything we focus upon. What Animal do you connect with?

Your Tree

Here is a small ritual for finding your own personal healing tree.

Enter a quiet park or forest that has a variety of trees. Stand quietly amongst the trees and close your eyes. Take a few deep breaths and bring your focus to your heart.

Open your eyes and feel one particular tree calling you. Move toward it and place your back against the trunk, imagine your consciousness connecting with the tree through your breathing.

Feel a connection to all things through the branches as they draw down Father Sky and through the roots as they draw up Mother Earth moving together in the trunk and your heart.

Stay here for as long as you like and give thanks to your tree when finished.
