As mentioned in my last blog things are rapidly changing on Earth and in the last few weeks we've had a number of energetic gateways and influences - 10.10.2010, 20.10.2010 and the Blue Full Moon on 23.10.2010. The energies are shifting and people are moving and changing or having to fix things in their lives.  When there are such energetic shifts we are all affected at some level - often on the emotional but this can also manifest on a physical level. 

I remember years ago when I had an appointment with a healer and the healer phoned me to cancel due to illness - I was SO surprised as in those days I felt that healers should NOT get sick! I've since realised however, that we are all humans and that if we do not listen to our emotions or our bodies then we can become sick or dis-eased. I very seldom get ill but was struck down by chronic bronchitis about 10 days ago. My illness was due to my immune system being low as I hadn't been sleeping properly (my son had been waking me up every night for a couple of weeks due to fear of the dark) and I was processing some very deeply held grief (my friend was spending time with her aunt who was dying and did die and it brought back many of the memories of when my middle sister was dying and died in 2006 at the age of 38). So even though I'm a healer and know what makes me ill and I was well aware of what was going on with my emotions I still got sick. Part of me felt frustrated that I was ill as I had a lot of work to do (luckily no clients as it was over the weekend) but I had to just "go with the flow" and ended up in bed for 2 days! I mixed up a combination of Australian Bush Flower Essences (Bush Fuchsia, Bush Iris, Crowea, Pink Mulla Mulla, Red Suva Frangipani & Sturt Desert Pea) to help me and by Tuesday last week was feeling a great deal better.

What I want to point out here is that we are all humans and that at some level we all determine and mould our lives, however there are times when things happen that feel beyond our control and at these times we need to relax into the process (go with the flow) rather than fight it, ask for help from those around us and picture ourselves well and healthy again. Our minds and bodies are extremely complex and powerful - thoughts become energy and our bodies work hard and often very quickly to help us heal.
My sister and I had a chat on the phone this morning about life's ups and downs (see Terry's blog below).  The last few months, particularly the last few weeks, have held many challenges and changes for many people.  Life on Earth is rapidly changing whether we like it or not and we can either fight it or go with the flow and move forward. I believe that it's really time to let go of the past - of anyone or anything that has hurt or upset us over the years, and to move forward in positive ways.  Ask yourself:  "What is the best way for me to move forward from this hurt or upset?" and then give yourself an answer or advice that you would give to someone else and follow that advice!  Take action and let go of the past.  Think of it as a huge load on your back that you've been carrying and that has been weighing you down then picture yourself either putting it down or cutting it free from your back and shoulders forever (at long last...phew!).  How do you feel?

Instead of blaming, feeling bitter or resentful towards someone or something always try and find a positive way forward.  Life is supposed to be enjoyable but if you carry around any negative feelings against anyone or anything you cannot be free to enjoy your life!  Have a wonderful week.
Whether we like it or not love is always conditional, it seems to me.  If you are pleasing someone and pattering to their needs then you are the “bees knees” if not then you are chucked aside.  This seems to be true regardless of how well or how long you have known the person or even how well you think they know you!!  I have had two incidents this week that have reminded me of this.  Sadly again it reiterates to me that people will let you down and the only sure thing that you can rely on is God.  I am grateful for that knowledge and believe that regardless of what’s happening in your life you still need to step up and do your best, I think that is why the air is fresher the higher you go.  It’s October in Africa, and we are fried and frazzled in the heat and tempers are short so roll on the rains and the fresh cool air they bring!
Living in the 3rd world (Zimbabwe, or maybe the 4th – not sure of the criteria) has its tests.  One advantage though is that we have our faith tested on a daily basis.  We have a lot of opportunity to “give things to God”, as we really have no other option and very often no control over our situation.  By giving our troubles and worries to God we are able to experience his grace over our lives.  Daily I am reminded that I would not be able to do anything without God’s grace and I am so grateful for this.  Faith changes things but grace changes lives.  

10/10/10 has come and gone and I am still hoping that it has ushered in new and better things.  I know for sure that the only real constant in our lives IS change.  Things change in a flash, we are going along happy one minute and then bam, things change.  We just have to remember that external changes create space for us to change internally and vice versa.  The external earthly vibrations have definitely changed over the past 6 months resulting in shifts specifically in the area of relationships.  I see old friends being re-united on one hand and on the other, out-dated relationships dissolving.  It seems that the gap between those people vibrating on a denser level and those on a brighter, lighter level has widened making it almost impossible for these two extremes to mingle.  So keep raising your vibrations however you do it – whether it be meditating, praying, singing, giving, sharing or whatever else it may be.  Then you can be sure to grow with change and turn your life into one worth living.
Hi, thanks for visiting my new website.  I'll be posting blogs with all sorts of information about the work I do and things that interest me.

My wonderful sister, Terry Parham, who lives in Zimbabwe, Africa is going to be blogging on this site too - she practices as a Bach Flower Therapist, a Reiki Therapist, a Feng Shui Practitioner, a Psychic & Clairvoyant and a Yoga Teacher as well as being a Mother, Wife, Sister, Daughter, Friend, Cousin, Niece and Entrepreneur amongst many other things!  She'll blog about things that interest her and about living life in Africa.

We hope that you'll join us time and again on our respective journeys.
