"Until you heal the wounds of your past, you will continue to bleed. You can bandage the bleeding with food, with alcohol, with drugs, with work, with cigarettes, with sex, but eventually, it will all ooze through and stain your life. You must find the strength to open the wounds, stick your hands inside, pull out the core of the pain that is holding you in your past, the memories, and make peace with them.” Iyanla Vanzant
The person you believe yourself to be is, in fact, a bundle of patterns you cobbled together as a child, in an attempt to cope with overwhelming situations you found yourself in. It was an attempt to keep yourself feeling safe when the adults around you couldn’t. It was the bravest and most creative thing you ever did. And yet, the consequence has been that for the rest of your life you’ve been reliving the same patterns over and over again, existing in a tiny space that belongs to the past, but continues to bring the past into your future, losing all connection with the present moment, with your true self, and your authentic expression.
But it doesn't have to be this way, which is why I offer an opportunity to invite yourself back, to discover and reclaim the depth and potential of being who you truly are.
I offer this work because I know from experience that transformation is possible. With willingness, capacity, readiness and support you can free yourself from the limitations of past conditioning and create a life that is an authentic expression of your source nature. But my work isn't about pushing anything, it's not about setting goals or feeling powerful. My work is about supporting you in a process of self-inquiry that both inquires into and integrates the past, in a way Growing you Up, which takes time and space, and simultaneously pointing you to the possibility of Waking Up, which is an instant and present moment reality. The combination of these two approaches brings self-realisation and self-actualisation. It's about becoming all of who you are, living as presence, which illuminates the truth in any moment, returning you to the simplicity of your natural state. And from here witnessing your life unfold in truly mysterious ways. It's the marriage of source and substance - Freedom as limits - where your limitless, transcendent nature appears as You, with all the limits and difficulties appearing as this warm glove of human being bring. And from here we'll explore how you might live as a relational, dynamic, creative force in the world. It's hard to find a suitable word or phrase to name what I bring, because in reality the ground I'll take you to is un-namable. But for want of a term I'm going for Awakening as Embodied Consciousness, which is a radical submission to the actuality of your direct-felt-sensed experience of multi-dimensional reality, like it or not, in whatever way it shows up.
Or in simple terms it means RELAX right where you are and RELATE with whatever experience arises through a felt-sense of the present moment.
This is the radical way of 'No Practice'. So I won't ask you to sit for hours in meditation or to contort your body into unnatural postures. All I ask is for your willingness to inquire into the truth of what's actually going on in any moment.
What to expect if you work with me...
The landscape you are entering might bring tears, might sometimes feel challenging and painful, but I promise there'll be lots of laughter too, plenty of hugs, and so much love and support. You'll be stepping into a process of experiential self-inquiry, where you'll explore and begin to integrate entrenched patterns of behaviour, past traumas, and feelings you have habitually avoided. Why would you do this? Good question. Well, these old patterns get stuck in your body and express themselves as reactive/defended tight knots of emotion and dis-ease, creating a filter over your experience, which forces you to operate in narrow, predicable ways, distancing you from deliciousness of reality. And you see, believe it or not, reality is the safest place to dwell. I know - it sounds radical, but trust me and I'll show you. With your willingness and interest to meet your difficulties and potentials with equal enthusiasm, you'll begin to be touched by your own human vulnerability. And in time, you'll find a greater capacity to live from a place of love and compassion, feeling deep gratitude for your life, where you can't help but forgive yourself and forgive others. You'll tenderly gather up the fragmented, patterned aspects of yourself and give them the big reassuring hug they've been longing for. You'll begin to relax the arguments you've been having with yourself about how things are and how they should be, might be, could've been, would've been, and very gently, little-by-little, the patterns will fall away, returning you to your natural state of being, which feels inherently safe, connected, and easy in the world.
This is true freedom.
Living this stream of love is a process of surrendering to the mystery of life. It's the place where change happens effortlessly, where you can begin to listen to the wisdom of your own inner guidance and live and express yourself authentically. At peace, yet more vibrant and creative than ever. With clarity of vision, potential for action, depth of intimacy and capacity to relate. Drenched in love your life will feel enriched with a felt-sense of true happiness, wellbeing and joy.
And just imagine that...
LIVING THIS IS MY INVITATION...
