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.
