The whispers of spirit v the mind

There has been one area that I’ve struggled and questioned over the years which seem to be opposing one another. Depending on which camp you come from or believe. One school of thought (mind driven) will tell you ‘if you don’t know where you’re going you’ll end up there’ and adamant about goal setting, self purpose and self direction.


The other is the way of the spirit, which if you are familiar with, will tell you to relax, get out of the way, allow yourself to be guided and that everything happens for our greater good.  Since we have no earthly way of knowing what that greater good truly embodies, we need to become receptive and to calm the mind which has a million questions.

Silver Birch teaches that when we begin to feel anxious we set up a vibration around us where by the spirit world cannot reach us. If we stay calm, they can guide us, a book will fall off the shelf, we will turn on the radio just in time to hear something we’ve been asking about, we are more aware and alert to our signs. This is the manner which I have been becoming more adept at, its a sort of living more intuitively.


During times when Ive travelled with only a mud-map, I have become in tune with such guidance. The challenge is in day to day life, in a world which is screaming at us for our attention, what will we give our time to? How will we stay in a state of calm? What do we do daily to achieve this? Is there a way to combine both of these factors, to use goal setting without feeling like we have failed if we don’t reach it? Curious to hear your feedback.


Mick – saying hi…

Some of you have probably read my other posts about my beloved brother who is in the spirit world and how he often comes through to me. Our ‘sign’ is a seahorse, which I’ve written about before. This morning, I climbed out of bed and decided to walk to the local coffee shop to buy a take away coffee. This is not something I normally ever do….

As the young woman handed me my coffee she said ‘I’ve put it into a second cup because it’s quite hot’… I thanked her and as I walked outside I realised the ‘other cup’ had a pattern of sea horses. I smiled and mentally acknowledged my brother.


A couple of hours later, I suddenly saw the date and realised it was actually my brothers birthday! Holy moly, how could I forget? I texted my sister reminding her, as she too had forgotten.

This is just a little story to remind us all that our loved ones are never far away, they use ‘signs’ to get thru to us and to show how we are guided and to reassure us that they are really and truly okay.

Readings and what to expect ….

It’s been a while since I blogged, but recently something has come to *light* which I think worthy of a blog. About 2 years ago I took someone to a reader whom I have seen myself a couple of times and whom has always been spot on. I only like to see readers who know NOTHING about me (just as I like to know NOTHING about the person I’m reading for) that way there can be no influences. So, I took my rather sceptic friend to see this lady and as she held my friends ring for a moment she asked ‘is this a promise ring?’

My friend replied ‘yes’

The psychic went on ‘well, I’m sorry to tell you this but there is absolutely no love vibrations coming off this ring whatsoever….  Usually when I hold a promise or engagement ring I feel all sorts of warm fuzzy things… but I”m sorry, I don’t feel it with this.’

My friend was incensed. As I drove her home she told me in no uncertain terms what a waste of time it was taking her to see this woman and that she should ask for her money back! I drove her home in silence, wondering how this psychic could have gotten it so wrong? So…. knowing there is no ‘time ‘in spirit world as such,  I decided to wait it out.

I did wonder, what responsibility we have to our own intuitions, being truthful and yet being so careful to whom we are reading for….  I always err on the side of leaving the recipient empowered and feeling positive about their lives, but, in this psychics case, maybe she needed to be blunt. I wasn’t so sure at the time.

18 months down the track. The above relationship begins dissolving before my eyes and my friend rings me in tears. I try to offer support (aware that advice is often NOT useful during such times) and become a shoulder for her to cry upon. HOWEVER never one moment did I forget what this psychic had predicated from her ‘promise ring’….


I didn’t have the nerve to remind my beloved friend (unless I wanted a black eye) so I kept the revelation to myself and decided to write a blog about it instead!

So….. months down the track, the break up was horrendous, no other word to describe it.  My friend was in a bad way for a while. Yet, ever so slowly, she began to come around, to heal and began to enjoy life as a single girl again. She lost weight, attended the gym and began to be reacquainted with experiences she wasn’t able to do ‘with the ex’….

I applauded her from the sidelines the whole damn messy way.

And I believe, that is what the spirit people around us do also, they applaud our advances but never judge our mishaps.  They are always close to lend a ‘spirit hand’ in times when we feel we are at our wits end. They are there ‘yet not there’ so to speak.

Never lose hope. Even when some *truth* as it turns out reveals itself, know that you are on your pathway to greatness, whatever that may be, however small or great that is, what is ‘great’ to humans is rather ‘small’ to the spirit world so try not to judge anything –  it doesn’t matter! The thing is, we are growing evolving souls learning so much about relating to others, sharing, caring and showing compassion when it’s easier to turn away.

We are never truly alone. Even if we feel we are. We are not.
