The Value of Silence – going beyond the mind
There are varying levels of silence from the stonewalling of a negative reaction, to the sublime Samadhi of meditation. Not forgetting the negative silence of complicity that allows all kinds of evil to prevail.
But the silence that I speak of is that which permeates ones whole being no matter what circumstances prevail.
Many people are uncomfortable with silence, in fact for some it is anathema, and so they fill the silence with aimless chatter and distracting pursuits.
It is not really the practice of silence that achieves this sacred space, but practicing mindfulness, that allows one to observe the silence that is a constant.
In 1995 following a turbulent emotional period in my life I decided to take a month long pilgrimage by walking the “Way of St James” otherwise known as “El Campesino” the famous pilgrim’s route to “Santiago De Compestela” through Northern Spain. Read the rest of this entry »
We live in a strange world when what is perceived as wisdom and giftedness in one culture is perceived, diagnosed, labelled and medically treated as a psychosis, schizophrenia, bipolar or other mental health disorder in another.
In 1984 the Author’s world as she knew it collapsed, her material, emotional, and mental being underwent a complete shattering before being re-built into A New Human.
This event caused her once stable identity as Director of a Finance Company and Advertising Executive to transform into a “wacky” multidimensional time traveller. Although it took many years of research and meetings with various now famous spiritual and conspiracy “gurus” for that understanding to hit her. Once it did and she realised she had overcome a huge process without medication and psychiatric intervention she made it her mission to write about the experiences, so that others may benefit from her “madness” in order to manage their own transformation.
Everyone will undergo this at sometime in their lives, but not in the same way, each person’s transformation will be unique and with the right kind of support and understanding the process can be less traumatic than the Authors. It was quite a while before she undertood the effect of her experiences had caused PTSD during which she collapsed with ME. That was a gift and enabled her to ground enough to emerge into the being that sits here and writes today. Now she is conscious, now she is aware, now she knows who she really is, and that is a spark of Divine Consciousness that is on a mission as a Multidimensional Time Traveller.
There is nothing hidden, everything has been laid wide open for everyone to decide for themselves, was she a psychotic making up stories or had she really undergone a transformation that resulted in her claiming the status of A New Human?
We are all familiar with the term “The Emperor Wears No Clothes.” An expression arising from a tale told of a young boy who in his innocence declared aloud during a parade by the ruling King of the Realm, where everyone had to bow down to the King’s will.
“The Emperor Wears No Clothes!” as all around him bowed low and refused to see the obvious, much less name it.
The ruled had been indoctrinated into believing the King was dressed in full regalia and no-one dared to challenge his nakedness except this young innocent.
When anything unseen and hidden is causing problems either within a society at large or as is often the case within the immediate family, first you have to name it. Until something is named there is no possibility of resolving it. Whilst people around the “hidden issue or situation” pretend there is nothing wrong, the hidden gets power.

Recent experience is causing me to question the whole Mental Illness paradigm which I recently described to a colleague as ” a complete f—— mess.
Let me take you back a few years to when I began to really understand that my own “awakening” was not a mental illness but a call to accept that I was a unique spark of consciousness having a human experience in a multidimensional universe. Doubtless repeating this in front of a DSM indoctrinated psychiatrist would get me labelled as Schizophrenic and were I to go on to explain that
“actually my here and now consciousness has activated an ability to time travel and I have accessed what others call “past lives” but which I see as merely another aspect of a multidimensional reality”
would have me being offered drugs to contain and stunt my psychotic tendencies. Read the rest of this entry »
Are We Enslaved or Free? – Programmed humans or free spirits?
A journey through South East Asia has caused me to question the meaning and purpose of human existence. This will not be for the first time, but perceptions change along with the questions.
The brutality that has scarred the nations of Cambodia and Vietnam with the USA’s major involvement, particularly in the latter when they lost the war with Vietnam has brought into question facts that cause many to turn away from addressing. Read the rest of this entry »
I’ve recently been given a book by a friend to read called The Silence of the Heart by Paul Ferrini. I’m about three quarters of the way through it and decided to “Google” him and located his website and once again I saw “Spiritual Healing for Sale” despite his wise and comforting “channelled” writings he is no different than the numerous other gurus/teachers who are cooly raking in millions of dollars selling their particular brand of spirituality. Spiritual Retreats offering peace, tranquility and four or five star accommodation and the “presence” of the Master is the new cool thing to do or place to be.
I come from an old school of thought that “genuine spiritual teachings are free.” I have been blessed/guided to those who would give freely of their time and energy teaching me what they knew from the relatively unknown to the now famous and celebrated Eckhart Tolle and David Icke. I took what felt right and left the rest and then added my own experiences to the pool of my knowledge. Read the rest of this entry »
Where Are We?
It is a well-known and accepted given in many psychological schools of thought that humans operate at different levels of consciousness, often referred to as being asleep or awake. You have heard the expression
“Asleep with eyes wide open.”
I first encountered teachings on this subject whilst attending a Practical Philosophy Course, some 30 years ago. It placed into conceptual form feelings I’d had that
“most of us here are the walking dead.” Read the rest of this entry »
