Living a Life I Love!

Hello there! I’ve been dropping some hints over the past few weeks to a grand ‘big reveal.’ Today is the day. My apologies go out to those who know me personally for not getting told this news sooner or personally.

What I’m about to share is a huge move for me, probably one of the biggest decisions I’ve made thus far. Believe me I wanted to shout it from the rooftops the moment I decided. Somewhere inside, after everything I’ve learned I just wanted to keep it to myself, let it be sacred, special, unique, my own. I needed to let the idea sit first to make sure I was comfortable with my choice. If I shared too soon chances are I would certainly meet some resistance that may sway me to change my mind.

I love an analogy I heard recently about comparing my situation to a brick wall. You build the wall with bricks and mortar. Before the wall is solid and strong you have to wait a while. Allow the mortar to dry & the bricks to settle into position before it is stable & supportive. This is just what I did. I am settled, strong and standing firm.

Oh okay already what is my news? I quit my day job. After working nearly four years at the same place I walked out of the door on Friday no longer an employee. It was emotional, I am so grateful for the past few years & a role I’ve learned so much in. It was super hard walking away from a team I truly love & who feel like family. It’s a heck of a lot easier to leave somewhere you don’t like!

Why did I leave if I liked it so much? I needed to create the life I love. Doing what I love everyday and making a living from it. That was my brief fifteen months ago when I started down my spiritual path. Now that dream has manifested into the opportunity I have now.

What am I going to do then? Basically I’m going to be pretty much doing what I have been doing for the past two years apart from I will be in control. I am now officially my own boss, as of yesterday, day one. I will be teaching yoga on a full time roster, seeing more healing clients and freelance designing from my home office. Of course I’ll be blogging. All this will be done under my trading name Seren Holistic Lifestyles. Growing the Seren brand will be a big exciting project in itself. I even have a business coach to help guide me along the slightly scary path of ‘business owner.’ I shall master Excel spreadsheets.

How did I come to make such a massive life overhaul? For many months I was trying to create space so I could see more healing clients, doing the work my Soul loves to do. I kept asking my inner guidance for the answer. All I got was ‘wait’ or firm ‘no’s’ when I suggested something ‘I thought’ I should give up to make room.

You see I was trying to control the situation & not hand over to the powers that know best. When you surrender to the universe you have to trust the answer will present in due course. Most of the time it’s not what you thought it would be. I asked for space to create a life I would love to live. At first I thought it meant dropping off a yoga class a week. Then I wouldn’t be so tired in my day job & I’d have more energy on weekends for clients. That wasn’t the answer. Teaching is a huge part of why I’m here and the perfect complimentary modality to my energy practice. Finally I did what I was told and ‘waited.’ Sat back, was patient and then the answer came through.

It seems so obvious now that the 9 to 5 city job had to go. I’d not been happy with the lack of creative work for a while. Sitting it out waiting on other people to bring in the clients and some decent work. What I should have been doing & what I am doing now is attracting clients I wish to work for from industries aligned with who I am. The messages were calling out from the start I just wasn’t connecting with them.

Why wasn’t I receiving the messages? Fear was holding me back. My city job was secure, a regular wage every week and paid holidays. Why would I give that up to be self-employed with a bucket load of risks? It is time to get uncomfortable. Change is needed. The fear and risks of self-employment shall empower me to get things done, work hard and achieve my goals. I need this. I also reminded myself I travelled the world for a whole year living off my savings & not getting paid. Since then I’ve taken many unpaid leaves & never hit any problems. I had just forgotten. I’ve done it before I can do it again.

Once the penny dropped I could very much hear the celestial choir singing out. Oh how obvious it is now. Work for myself, set my own goals, have the freedom to do as I wish on my terms. Have 100% responsibility for my own life.

I am happy. I am well supported. I’m stepping up to the greatest adventure yet and I’m ready for it.

There you go! I’m sure I’ll still be as busy as ever if not more but I’m now officially living a life I love.

Who’s gonna join me?

Love K xx

A Chance Encounter

Hello dearest readers. How have you all been? I’m back from my blogging break all refreshed & ready to go. It’s done me the world of good to step back, take some time for myself & just be for a while. There is so much to share with you it’s hard not to write a 3000 words essay right here & now.

I’ll start with a great story about a chance encounter. Whilst away in Melbourne for an extended long weekend I dropped by the Hay House Publishing ‘I can do it’ seminar. One of my favourite authors Doreen Virtue was presenting.  Any Angelic realm fanatic will need no introduction to Doreen. As she was introduced at the event ‘this lady has more decks than the Queen Mary.’

My plan was to get to the conference centre super early to snag a place near the front. However the other few thousand people attending had the same plan. It wasn’t too bad, the prime real estate was gone of course, I did get a good spot near the front but not in the ‘mosh pit.’

This was my first ‘metaphysical’ conference of sorts so I had no idea what to expect so I didn’t expect anything. The lady next to me struck up a conversation. We were both flying solo so it was nice to have a chat before the event kicked off. A fellow Doreen groupie there was no struggle for small talk.

The star of the show did not disappoint. Doreen is an inspiration. She has over come crippling self-doubt & a fear of public speaking to get where she is today. To stand up in front of the world to speak about ‘the invisible’ & not get pulled down by the haters is amazing. Over the two hours Doreen spoke about the Angelics, Indigos, listening to your divine guidance to live a life of light & the effects of the current energy patterns. I certainly could relate to this ten fold. Of course there was card readings! Three thousand hands shot up when asked ‘who’d like a reading?’ A few people also were selected ‘out of the blue’ & given very accurate personal messages. To witness this live was truly mind blowing.

A wonderful morning was wrapped up with a beautiful meditation accompanied by Doreen’s husband on the piano. I sat a while afterwards to absorb and reflect before I slipped away to meet my man for lunch.

I missed out on the afternoon book signing. I didn’t feel like lining up with the masses, I was happy with the time I’d spent there. On my way out I recognised a group of ladies walking a few meters ahead. It was the Wellness Warrior Jess & her gang of fellow holistic bloggers. She looked as fresh faced and healthful as her photos. A little star struck I just kept walking. It felt a bit weird to approach them like a mad, crazy fan & I didn’t really know what I would have said. I acknowledged their presence & was happy to have seen them all for real.

I wasn’t so shy & doubting the next day whilst sitting in the departure lounge of Melbourne airport. Apologies we need to back track a few days now as there is more to the next part of the story and it’s really the best bit.

On our first day whilst wandering the infamous Melbourne lane ways we stumbled across a kooky little shop called ‘The Haunted Bookshop.’ I had to go in. It was awesome. Weird and wonderful books, artifacts and Addams family type décor filled the tiny space. The guy behind the desk could have been Gomez himself.

There was a section on ‘Angels, Fairies and Goddesses.’ I was totally all over it. I noticed one of Doreen’s older books ‘Goddesses & Angels’ peaking out at me. Reaching up to take it I instantly got the highest pitch ringing in my left ear I’ve ever had. It even made me stop still. The book was in my hand but I couldn’t flick through, as it was shrink wrapped. A quick scan of the back cover I just knew I had to get it. I told my partner what had just happened, ‘I have to get this book’ and the ringing stopped.

Fast forward back to the departure lounge. I had the Goddesses & Angels book in my hand luggage the others I’d bought at the event went in our check in. I pulled it out and was just about to start reading when I noticed a tall, sparkly figure dressed in floating hippy clothes sit down in the gate opposite. It was Doreen Virtue. I grabbed my man’s arm pointing to my book ‘the lady who wrote this is right over there.’ Before he’d even said go over I was rummaging in my bag for a pen. There was no hesitation this time I just knew I had to go say hi and get this book signed. The ringing in my ear was definitely a special message. How amazing. I didn’t get to the signing at the seminar so the universe presented me with Doreen in a very personal, chance encounter.

I couldn’t have been happier. Doreen was so gracious and absolutely delighted to sign my book. She even asked if I wanted a photo. Of course I did. (Wish I’d taken my rain coat off now!!) We had a quick chat, did the fan thing, and then I was on my way. These moments are truly special. My intention for the seminar was to get a signing but on the day it just didn’t feel right. I wasn’t disappointed either, some where deep down I knew if I trusted in the powers that be I’d get my wish and I did. When I arrived in Adelaide a few hours later to meet with my mentor one of the first things I told her was “I just met Doreen Virtue in the airport!” What a magical day all round.

Crystal Healing – LOVE!

“It’s love that makes the world go round!” W.S. GILBERT, Iolanthe

Welcome back to my crystal-healing segment. I’d taken a hiatus for a while here, not sure why exactly. Then last week I had a huge pull to talk about crystals again. I’m never far from a crystal, maybe less than thirty centimetres. It makes sense for me to start writing again about something that is an everyday part of my life.

Today I shall introduce you to a combination of crystals that may assist in attracting or maintaining that loving feeling!

Disclaimer: This is just my personal take of how certain crystals can work together in a positive way. This is not a set in stone (pun ha, ha!) method to snag the man or women of your dreams 😉

Personally I like to use these crystals for my own self-love stimulation. If I’m happy and outwardly glowing I hope that will rub off on those around me. Like everything in life it is in the intention you set before you start that is important. I set my intention to bring extra love & peace into my day by combining certain crystals together.

Here are my five love crystals of choice:

Rose Quartz: This crystal is pure love everything about it even the colour radiates happiness & joy. A fantastic crystal for healing the heart & emotional wounds as it brings calmness and balance. Rose quartz can promote self-love from within which in turn will open up the channels to give & receive love from others. Wear it next to your heart chakra for some extra loving.

Smoky Quartz: Great for dissipating negative emotions especially fear & promoting positive thinking. This allows passion & love to flow freely from the heart. A useful crystal for assisting in communication matters.

Jade: Very symbolic in ancient China for attracting love. Jade is the symbol for harmony, beauty, health, wealth and wisdom. It can assist in balancing emotions & purification. The green colour is also associated with the heart chakra.

Carnelian: A great motivator that enhances physical energy. A real pick me up. It can assist you in stepping into personal power to create success, joy & happiness by opening up the heart. The deep orange colour is associated with the sacral chakra.

Citrine: The stone of abundance. This is one of my favourites to work with. I am especially drawn to its sunny yellow colour. Citrine has the power to dispel fear, anxiety and anger. Replacing it with joy & happiness. It can assist in building self-confidence & bringing about fresh starts. Citrine is very good at clearing blocked energy in the solar plexus.

Work with these crystals any way you are drawn to. I place clusters on my desk whilst I work or I carry them on me in my pocket or round my neck. You may wish to lie down & place them over the associated chakra whilst you relax. Go with your intuition there is no right or wrong way to use crystals & they won’t cause you any harm. Don’t forgot to regularly cleanse your crystals to clear any residue build up.

Lots of sparkling crystal love,

Seren xx
