A selection of wisdom, philosophy, knowledge, paradoxes and dream interpretation derived from my experience as a 23 year old female living on Planet Earth. Everything I have written comes from observation and the depths of my own senses! This is my mind...

About me: I'm a student of psychotherapeutic counselling and hypnotherapy, a writer, philosopher and musician. I practice mindfulness, have a passion for books and gain inspiration from nature. I'm on a mission to train my intuitive abilities and understand my mind through my experiences whilst also trying to create my own meaning of life. Expanding my consciousness, real human moments and inspiring others is what brings me the most fulfillment!

A moment of understanding…

In my seminar today, we had a therapist join us that was at the back of the class observing the lesson to assess how things were being taught. She just randomly showed up on the day and apparently wasn’t meant to be there until a lot further in the future. On the break she approached me and said this…

"I was impressed by you today, you have an interesting way about you that has the ablity to reach people that need to go inside *points to her mind*"…

I then said, “Thankyou, that means a lot because I struggle in school environments because I feel like such an outsider…”

Her response was, “That’s because you’re a free spirit, i’m that way too which means that when i’m with people I can really reach inside their mind…”

I then said, “I can see that in you as you’re an observer, I am too!”

She then responded with, “You’re very unique, don’t ever change”

…”Thankyou because i’m just being myself…”

She then finished with, “And that’s the way it should be!”

This was a real human moment for me.  A couple of days ago I wrote that I don’t expect people to understand me and then, at the most unexpected moment, life gave me a moment of understanding!

I love these types of moments…

The pursuit for a deeper meaning…

Do I expect people to understand me? Absolutely not! But I expect myself to try and understand myself and what my work is for this life. The way I understand myself is by allowing myself to guide myself. To teach myself. To trust myself.

When you are on the pursuit for a deeper meaning in life, a lot of things change. A new awareness surfaces and you just know that you won’t find a deeper meaning in a seedy nightclub or in a social situation where people forget that you’re in the room after a couple of minutes. You want to be seen for who you are on the inside and yet you also know that for people to truly see who you are on the inside means that they also have to be on the pursuit for a deeper meaning in life.

That’s when you begin to love who you are even more. Because the things that people don’t give to you, you then give to you. And you keep giving yourself love, acceptance and understanding until you no longer expect it from others. And on those rare encounters that someone sees you for who you really are on the inside, you will know that you deserve love and it will immerse your entire being…

Super treats!

Super treats!

Wiping the slate clean…

"Buddha said that unless you kill your parents you will never become free. Killing the parents means killing the voice of the parent inside you, killing the conscience inside you, dropping these nonsense ideas and starting to live your own life according to your own consciousness. Remember, consciousness has to be more and conscience has to be less. By and by conscience has to disappear completely and pure consciousness has to be lived!" - Osho

For me, erasing the teachings, indoctrinations, labels, expectations and habits that my parents put on to me throughout my life has created a revolution in my mind. Our parents do things based on their knowledge and understanding and sometimes, their way, can completely clash with our level of consciousness and the intention we have for our lives. It’s not that their way is necessarily wrong, it’s just that we all have a different life purpose. We can’t blame parents for their teachings, indoctrinations, labels, expectations and habits because it is more than likely that they learnt those things from their parents and it repeated in that fashion for generations before them. Unless your parents erased the conditioning that was put upon them, it is highly probable that they have had the voice of their parents in their mind their whole lives, shadowing over them, stopping them from finding freedom…

We have to metaphorically kill our parents and wipe the slate clean. Start fresh. Learn in a way that resonates with who we really are because by doing that we break the cycle of conditioning. Or we will never be free…

Planet Earth prophecies…

From using my intuition, paying close attention to the feelings and images that I receive, I have just created a list of prophecies (positive and negative) for how I think things will be on planet Earth in the coming years, based on how they are in the present. (Keep in consideration that these are just predictions as everything is based on cause and effect, which means that the future hasn’t happened yet! Anyone is able to create prophecies from their intuition*).

1. Because of the information that is accessible through the internet, more people will gain awareness to the truth of life and the manipulative agendas that are used against them. More celebrities will try and create awareness through the media.

2. Things in the media will become more sexualised which will affect children’s behaviour, making them feel ashamed of their innocence at an even younger age, which will make them grow up even faster.

3. Supermarkets will introduce more healthy and organic options for reasonable prices and people will start to become more open to these options.

4. The education system will appear more out dated as time goes on and a lot of students will choose to research things about life by themselves.

5. Facebook and Twitter will die out and something new and more advanced will come along that is more brainwashing and will be more evasive of people’s lives. A lot of people will spend most of their time in the virtual world, making their attention spans and enthusiasm for life degenerate. However, the fact that Facebook and Twitter will die out will be a good thing because more people will realise that they would rather live their lives authentically…

6. More revolutionary ideas from people of all ages will be shared with the world, inspiring people to help protect the planet.

7. The world’s population will sky rocket, making things more violent and chaotic.

8. People will become more open to the idea of other life in the universe and the fact that extra-terrestrials visit our planet already.

9. More people will grow their own food and take matters into their own hands by doing things for themselves, instead of complaining about them.

10. More men will realise that it’s ok to be sensitive and more women will realise that it’s ok to have a voice!

11. The more that people wake up, the worse the stories on the news will be, creating more fear.

12. Things will get a lot worse before they get better, but things will eventually get better and there will be a revolution!

Dream interpretation #22

In my dream last night I was handed a piece of paper that had this written on it, “Anyone that is lost will always find their way; even a super-tramp!”

I know that this was a message from my subconscious to myself, relating to how I feel about my life and also the people that are around me. Everything in life miraculously manages to fix itself eventually. But it’s so easy to worry in life and to feel like you are in quick sand, being encapsulated with intense fear…

I was recently reading how Everett Ruess (a super-tramp) always managed to gain money when he was on his travels. He said that when money was running low and he was starving for food, it would always appear out of nowhere, saving him at the perfect moment. This also relates to my life, whenever I have needed something it has always appeared at the right moment (which I do forget sometimes). All I had to do was trust in life, stop worrying and realise that everything synchronises together!

Just, smile…

Life is beautiful, that’s no surprise. But so often, we can get caught up in a web of anger, blame and cynicism, projecting ourselves away from the now. We avoid the now by choosing to spend copious amounts of time in a pool of our own negativity.

But we are always responsible for ourselves; our thoughts, feelings, choices, actions. And it is our responsibility to bring ourselves back into the now and see that on the grand scheme of the universe, the things that annoy us and hurt us are so small and insignificant.

Of course we are allowed to feel pain, it is our human right to feel, but we are also allowed to be happy, which is forgotten by a lot of people.

Life is beautiful, that’s no surprise, and if we take some time out of our day to remember this statement, we will be able to let go of negativity easier and just, smile….

When the caterpillar transforms…

When the caterpillar transforms into the butterfly, the butterfly doesn’t then die because it has succeeded in transforming, no, the butterfly continues to explore life. Transformation is a slow process and it’s the small changes that we make in our day to day living that continue to make the process carry on and on. The misconception about the process of transformation is that there is a destination that is to be reached and upon reaching it you will be complete, when actually, you will just be more equipped with tools to handle the things that you couldn’t handle as well before.

But it doesn’t necessarily mean that things will be easier, life is hard for everyone. It’s meant to be, because that’s how we learn as a species. From experiencing the hard things, we then know how to appreciate the blissful things. And from experiencing the blissful things, we can then understand what is needed to handle the hard things.

The butterfly continues to explore life, still facing obstacles like it did when it was a caterpillar!

"On occasion, I am grateful for what unusual and fine personality I may encounter by chance, but I have learnt not to look too avidly for them. I delve into myself, into abstractions and ideas, trying to arrange the other things harmoniously, but after that, taking them as they come."

Everett Ruess

Facing our stuff…

We all have our own ‘stuff’ that we have to deal with. Lessons to learn. Problems to face. Predicaments. Decisions…

But when we deny that we have stuff that we need to face and we don’t resolve things, we may be inclined to make our problems other people’s problems; punish them, blame them, target them. All in order to avoid facing ourselves…

But we have to face ourselves, if we want to evolve. We have to see our negative traits, if we want to transform them. And we have to get to know our bad points, if we want to progress on this perplexing journey of life.

But if we don’t want to accept that we have our own ‘stuff’ to face, our stuff will add more stuff, which will add more stuff, and that stuff will keep on growing!

Dream interpretation #21

The dream…

I was sitting on my own at the back of a classroom that was filled with a lot of people. Everyone was misbehaving, ignoring the teacher, throwing paper planes, gossiping and saying judgemental things to each other. Someone was at the board and asked if anyone wanted to write on it, I shot my hand up and said “I DO!”.

I walked over to the board and wrote, "JUDGING THE FUCK OUT OF EVERYONE ELSE BECAUSE I AM SO GOD DAMN PERFECT!"

Everyone laughed at what I wrote and stopped talking, I then said…

"There is a lot of judgement going on in this class… but does anyone ever stop to think that this is the type of messaging that is coming across to people? When you are judging someone else you are basically implying that you are perfect, that you are better and that other people should be jealous of you. But no one should be jealous of you and you are not better because you are being judgemental, and that doesn’t make you a role model to anyone."

People listened and looked at me in a contemplative way, ambient music that evoked feeling started playing…

I then said, “Life is precious and fleeting…”

The teacher then said, “We aren’t here very long…”

I then clicked my fingers and said, “That’s how fast your life goes by…And if you think of the time humanity has been here on this planet on the grand scheme of things, it’s literally only a minute that’s gone by…”

The class was completely silent…

I then said, “There was once a time where man was living in caves and now here we all are in this cosy class room with this great music playing at the back…What will it take to finally start treating each other with a bit of kindness and compassion?

Everyone looked at me…I then walked out of the classroom…
