I am a truth seeker who believes that we have the ability to change our lives and genes when we choose to embrace our own power. Situations and people of drama are powerless without our reaction, we can choose to accept the gift or reject it. When we follow the Ego, we wait for everything to fall into place before we can be at peace, but if we choose Spirit, we will find peace and everything will fall into place. I believe in the power of love, the power of intention, the power of perception, the law of attraction, all in creating a life of YOUR choice, and not of the choice of others. All of this lies in self awareness and responsibility. "Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and all of this shall be added unto you" Matthew 6:33

Be Kind

Our reality is merely a projection of ourselves, filtered through our beliefs and perceptions of what is ‘real’. Practice compassion and understanding whenever you receive any sort of negativity (anger, jealousy, persecution) because this person’s battle is not with you, but with themselves. If they blame their state and situation on you this is an illusion, and you will not help them if you play along.

It would be so magical to have a world full of compassionate, understanding souls who help those suffering these battles through their emotions and fears, rather than meet an eye for an eye.

“LOVE your enemies and PRAY for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? BE PERFECT, therefore, as your heavenly father is perfect”
– From the man himself, Jesus (Matthew 5:43-48)

The Power of Perception

Hi readers!,

I have finally discovered my niche (what inspires me most to write about) and so I have created a new blog to express it all via. If you are at all interested in spirituality, self-empowerment, self-discovery, healing yourself, living a life of peace, challenging yourself or living your dream please check it out!

Here is a taste of what I have to say:

Ever wondered what it would look like living your dream? Healing yourself from your illnesses and diseases? Throwing away your rose-coloured glasses and seeing the world through clear lenses?

“Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.”
― Wayne W. Dyer

The only thing you have complete control over is your own choices. Once we stop trying to fix the things around us and we start making choices for ourselves that are self-honouring, self-loving, it is amazing and so powerful what we can do and achieve. The Ego says ‘I will be at peace when everything falls into place’ but the Spirit says “everything will fall into place when I am at peace”.

Albert Einstein said that the most important decision we would make is whether we live in a supportive world or a hostile world because you will continually look for evidence to support your hypothesis. You either focus on love or on fear. Bruce Lipton says that it is this perception, this decision, that determines whether we will grow and change, or protect yourself and degrade.

“We can control our lives by controlling our perceptions.”
― Bruce H. Lipton

My name is Emily and my vision is to spread this knowledge and empower people to live the life they desire. I have spent the majority of my life as a people pleaser. Once I became aware of this, of what I was creating and what I truly desired, I realised how I had been merely functioning as a robot. My actions and choices had been programmed into my subconscious mind by the limiting beliefs and perceptions of my parents, my teachers, my doctors, my friends, the media, and the government. This had been happening from the moment I was born, I was completely unaware that my life was a regurgitation of these habits. I was on the road to not living a life of 70 years or 80 years, a life living the same year 70 times. Over and over.

Life doesn’t happen TO you, it happens THROUGH you

“Life is not controlled by genes, it is controlled by perception” – Bruce Lipton.


How many illnesses and dis-eases are caused today as a result of misconception? What would it take to recognise that your beliefs are not YOU, but that you are making them part of your identity as a result of misconception.
How many people have victimised themselves? Felt sorry for themselves? Everyday people talk about their problems and not taking responsibility for their choices, they are disempowering themselves. They are letting their negativity manifest in their body and mind and create this dis-ease.

Let me tell you a story from my own experience, of how dis-ease in my mind manifested in my body, creating a physical disease.

It started at the end of 2013, about 6 months ago now. I was standing at home in the kitchen in front of the bench, my mum was sitting on the opposite side facing me as I spread butter and honey on my bread (my favourite snack at the time) and stuffed it into my mouth.  We were having a conversation that I did not want to have, but because of her worry (oh, how mothers worry) she was forcing it upon me. It was a very sensitive topic for me, one that opened me up and made me completely and utterly vulnerable. That day, that’s exactly what was happening. I was opened up and vulnerable. It was like my chest  and abdomen had a large vertical incision in it, and my skin was peeled back to reveal my insides. There was nothing there to protect me at all, it was raw and painful.

While my insides were exposed, my skin pulled back, feeling vulnerable as ever, mum said something that completely shocked me.

“He’s got a daughter you know, and an ex wife, and he’s GOT to be at least forty years old”

Wow, her words hit me like paralysing waves of energy. I suddenly could not move. Well, for the sake of acting as if none of this information concerned me (because I didn’t want to be wrong), I moved. But, inside, I was frozen up. It’s like the fight or flight response they teach you at school, where you perceive a threat so your heart rate and blood pressure increases, you start sweating, your adrenal gland excretes adrenaline, glucose starts seeping into your veins, your pupils dilate. I was completely frozen, in shock, I had no idea what to do. I felt my stomach, now full of my toast, turn over uncomfortably. All I knew was that I needed to get out of there.

“I’ll think about it” I told her. Suddenly engulfed with fear, I walked out.

A few weeks later, I started to notice an unusual amount of pimples arising on my face. I had had pimples as a teenager, but never this bad, and hardly more than one or two for years. But now they were coming in clusters, bright red. I noticed other changes in my body, too. I couldn’t digest things very well at all, it was like I wasn’t absorbing the nutrients properly because I was constantly out of energy. I had Glandular Fever a few months before, but this exhaustion was different. Before I had lots of energy I could access, but my body was way too run down to use it. This time, my body was recovered and able to use the energy, but there was none there. I wondered what was wrong, so I went to my doctor.

She ordered a blood test and month later, after a gastroscopy and biopsy, I was diagnosed with Coeliac Disease. Wow, what a coincidence, I thought. What was I eating when I experienced that shock a few months earlier? Yep, bread, wheat. What was coeliac disease? An autoimmune disease when your body perceives gluten (a substance in WHEAT, barely, oats, and something else I can’t remember) as a pathogen (e.g, something that is trying to attack it).

I wasn’t quite so sure that that was a coincidence.

I slowly started to realise that through misconception (because later I found out that the information from my mother wasn’t actually attacking me, it was my mind that made thought it was), I had perceived the shock as an attack against me when I was too vulnerable to protect myself. My body had associated gluten with the experience, because it was in my stomach at the time, and thus thought that gluten was trying to attack me, causing an imbalance, a dis-ease. Every-time from then on that I ate gluten, it triggered the initial shock and thus created the same reaction in my body.

I learnt how Coeliac Disease was not a result of a genetic heritance, it was a result of my perception. I also learnt that, anything that you have created, you can also uncreate. All you need to do it change the attitude, belief, perception, emotion, thought that initially created the imbalance.

Take responsibility for your won choses, then you will be empowered to change. Stop victimising yourself, and create the life you want to live. Remember life doesn’t happen TO you, it happens THROUGH you

The conscious thoughts of the bodies on this planet oversee the energy of this solar system

“If we all had the quality of our lives as our first priority, the earth would not need to make the changes that it is making in the present, such as clearing the planet of people by earthquakes etc. The earth is a living organism and it is about to assert itself and free itself of people who do not love themselves. They judge themselves and everything, therefore they do not respect earth.” – Annette Noontil.

I find this quote (taken from The Body is the Barometer of the Soul) to hold a lot of truth. It is evident to me that our planet is in  desperate need of healing.

Many choices are made aligned with the ego (or the devil or fear or whatever you would like to name it): blame, guilt, anger, vengeance, shame. And the majority of the time, the perpetrator isn’t aware of the origin of their behavior. For example one may think that stopping a loved one from doing something they don’t agree with is love, but a lot of the time it is actually fear of the consequences (of losing them etc. ). Some do not see the selfishness of vengeance and blame and guilt. Yet they see loving yourself as selfish when in reality, you cannot love others until you love yourself. You cannot help others until you help yourself.

Addiction is a big part of the ego. We spend so much time and money and energy fulfilling ourselves with the physical world, yet few of us are aware that you will never be satisfied.

Sex, drugs, alcohol, tv, comfort food, relationships; these are just a few things we use and abuse. Even as I am writing this I am chomping away at a block of chocolate way past the point where my body has gotten all that it needs from it. I am now abusing myself because I am addicted to this substance that I believe will add more enjoyment to me. But it never does.

This is the ego. It tricks you into thinking that it will provide you with everything you ever wanted and needed but somehow you never reach the point of complete satisfaction. It keeps you on your toes, gnawing for more and more.

However, if we turn inwards into our divine selves, our soul, we start to realize that we are filled with love, light, peace and joy. It is an abundant, never ending supply. This is because it is sourced from the spirit (or God, if that rolls with you better). My friends, you will surely find satisfaction here.

This place is difficult to find and keep. As they say, it is a narrow road and few may enter. However, seek and you shall find.

I believe whole heartedly that addiction can be cured. I know that it can, if you are willing to let go of the ego. I know people who were alcoholics, drug addicts, criminals and have been released from their prison (which, may I add, is all mental).

So if we are to heal the world, we must heal ourselves first. Love ourselves first. Help ourselves first.

Wouldn’t it be amazing if we made enough room on that narrow road so that everyone could walk down it together?

Dealing With Your Complaints In Love- Relationship Real Talk Time- Day 235: 365 Radical Self Love Project

So true!

The Radical Self Love Project

Persistent complaints in relationships.

The judgements we have about others are a fascinating thing. The biggest illusion we all get caught in is thinking our complaints are the truth. They may occur that way, in fact they often do. The thicker the illusion the more our complaints seem real.

Here is the Kicker

Your complaints about your partner are not about your partner- they are about you.

This is one of the main reasons why most relationship issues are rarely resolved. We think the problem is someone else. They need to change. They need to fix something about themselves. Judgement after judgement.

All this judging cuts us off from our life force and the love within.

Inner-PeaceFor those of you who are ready to drop the exhausting loop of illusion and fear, keep reading because this will forever change the way in which YOU show up for your relationships and…

Be vigilant against temptation

“Whatever form temptation seems to take, it always but reflects a wish to be a self that you are not. And from that wish a concept rises, teaching that you are the thing you wish to be. It will remain your concept of yourself until the wish that fathered it no longer is held dear. But while you cherish it, you will behold your brother in the likeness of the self whose image has the wish begot of you. For seeing can but represent a wish, because it has no power to create. Yet it can look with love or look with hate, depending only on the simple choice of whether you would join with what you see, or keep yourself apart and separate.

“The savior’s vision is as innocent of what your brother is as it is free of any judgement made upon yourself. It sees no past in anyone at all. And thus it serves a wholly open mind, unclouded by old concepts, and prepared to look on only what the present holds. It cannot judge because it does not know. And recognizing this, it merely asks, “What is the meaning of what I behold?” Then is the answer given. And the door held open for the face of Christ to shine upon the one who asks, in innocence, to see beyond the veil of old ideas and ancient concepts help so long and dear against the vision of the Christ in you.

“Be vigilant against temptation, then, remembering that it is but a wish, insane and meaningless, to make yourself a thing that you are not. And think as well upon the thing that you would be instead It is a thing of madness, pain and death; a thing of treachery and black despair, of failing dreams and no remaining hope except to die, and end the dream of fear. THIS is temptation; nothing more than this. Can this be difficult to choose against? Consider what temptation is, and see the real alternatives you choose between. There are but two. Be not deceived by what appears as many choices. There is hell or Heaven, and of these you choose but one. “

My Miracle

I have been praying for a miracle in my life for a long time. I was sick of the blame, guilt, anger, and judgement surrounding me so I gave up. I surrendered completely to the Holy Spirit.

I found my space and said “Lord, Here I Am” and I surrendered. I found that He wanted me to live in happiness. I created space for Him in my life and we danced together, we ran, we felt the earth under our feet and laughed openly together. I will never forget that day.

Ever since, I have been waiting, WAITING, for a miracle. I thought that it would come to me, that He would show me the way, my next step. Yesterday, however, I learnt differently.

I opened my emails and found an unread one that intrigued me so I opened it. I learnt that “A MIRACLE IS A CHANGE OF MIND.” (A Course in Miracles); “YOU are the CENTER from which everything happens”.

This got me thinking – maybe God is trying to tell me something. I cannot wait any longer, my miracle is me.

So I sat down and got out my visual diary and my oil pastels. I prayed that He show me what he wants me to see, I told Him that this drawing was for Him, and I put pastel to paper.

God put an image in my mind of a woman and this is where I started. The picture on this page is where I finished.

Not long after I finished I was talking to a friend of mine and I happened to mention that I had just finished a drawing. Naturally, he asked to have a look and so I showed him.

He said to me “it seems like this is giving the message that in darkness there is always a light”.

And so it goes – my miracle. Thank you Lord :).

This image is of a woman surrounded in darkness, in chaos, confusion, suffering. She is reminded that “even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is a light to you” (Psalm 139: 11-12). God is encouraging her to step into His light and trust in Him – in darkness there is always a light.

Creating your vision

I have been completing a course based on A Course In Miracles for the last month and wanted to share the exercise for today. It will take some time, but it is definitely worth it!

I just spent 30 minutes or so typing away at whatever came up for me, without judging it or sorting through it. I just typed the words as they came to me. And I was amazed at what I came up with! I had no idea I could write a whole page.

If you let yourself be completely vulnerable then you will get a lot more out of this exercise. Good luck 🙂

“1. LISTEN TO MY VOICE: Be still. Rest in God, and listen to what A Course in Miracles calls “my voice” – the voice of Jesus, the voice of your Christ Mind. Think about what you would love to do. What brings you joy? Listen in stillness for Divinely Inspired Ideas for what would make you happy. With these things in mind, write down a Vision for your life – about a page – a specific description of your life, with you doing exactly what you have always wanted to do, as if its happening now. 

Write it in “I AM” language as if you are doing it now or have done it. “I love my life. I am … “

2. LEARN TO UNDO ERROR: See if there is any resistance, fear or blocks getting in the way of you living this life. What stories or excuses are coming up for you (if any) that are keeping you from being truly alive, doing what you love right now?

3. DO SOMETHING TO CORRECT THE ERROR: Take a step, an action, that proves that the error/the block cannot hold you back. Do something to correct the error, to dissolve the fear and live this life starting now. Do it today. Pick up your bed and walk. “
