Awakening Sleeping Beauty
In every one of us there lies a Sleeping Beauty waiting to be awakened by the kiss of love.
However, instead of waiting for someone to come and storm the palace gates of our self-imprisonment and break into our soul, we must summon the magic power of our Authentic Self to break this cruel enchantment that has left us unaware of our own glory.
How did this arise, we wonder to ourselves?
The question itself invites our quest into the far reaches of our own magical story. Like the pages of a dusty, lightly battered, but well loved book, we backtrack to the origins of our heartache, turning the pages hungrily for our answer.
For me it was the loss of my "first love" to death that stained me with the curse of permanence of a love irrevocably lost into the mists of my past. It was a hurt so painful to endure; it cut so deeply into the quick of my soul.
In order to try and put a salve on this wound of my heart, I made myself numb to my own life, beauty and spark: a bit like pricking my finger on the spindle and falling into a deep sleep; this numbing 'sleep' has gone on for a very long time.
And so, some of us do become comfortably numb over something that happened, to freeze-frame us in a reference point for the rest of our lives, in my case to the timbre of: "I will not let my guard down; I will not let in Love."
Whereas, if we had understood the situation better, we might have celebrated our good fortune instead!
For example, if, as a young girl my first love had not died suddenly, I would NOT have pricked my finger on the spindle of heartache, I would not have seeked comfort in the arms of the etheric realm, nature, fairy beings, the elementals, devas and other dimensional beings; for they called me from my silent slumber in the painful years of my adolescence.
And so it was in the sanctuary of the scared groves of nature and in Holy Communion with Star Beings that I came into my life and thus set me on my Sacred Path.
So, within my tragedy, or 'misfortune', was hidden the impetus to put me firmly on the footpath to my purpose and on to progressively find my fortune, my own unique natural genius: To share a way of Light, especially when you feel all love is lost.
Subsequently, with the assistance of my guides (the 'great shining ones'), I began my quest to find out what makes us fall 'out of love' and how we can stay in love with ourselves, each other and our lives, no matter what...
All this has unfolded beautifully into my own unique art from of my heart, my sacred work: my passion in the form of my writing, courses, videos and the amazing light and dance with my beloved clients... and even in the sharing with you now in our precious moments together through these words .
And so dear reader, I wonder if you too just shut yourself down at some cataclysmic point of your life to help YOU find YOUR stroke of genius?
Perhaps your cruel enchantment was catalysed by peers who were incapable of love, overly critical parents or the devastating loss of a loved one or a beloved pet, or a humiliation that cut you to your core.
And you may have stemmed the flow of your bleeding heart by numbing your pain with all manner of devices, such as: alcohol, or drugs or food, or work....
In my case, I stopped eating and became anorexic for some considerable time in order to reduce my energy so much that I was barely alive, and so couldn't feel much. And, yes, I did find some blessed peace in that place, for a while...
So, I whisper to you now in soft honeyed tones of my love for you, melting away the sadness of our years into the exile of our silent prison, with the siren call arising from the depths of our soul, mouthing words of wonderment: "It's time to awaken your Sleeping Beauty."
One can never change the past; in fact, we truly don't want to, for it sets the seeds for our sacred path and our destiny. And, like our fairy godmother, we actually can wave the magic wand to see the good (or gold) in what we have experienced.
As we allow ourselves to make alchemy by casting the glorious light of a positive perspective on what we have experienced, we thus spin our misfortune into the pure gold of ourselves.
Sometimes, the most tragic experience in our lives was the very thing that we needed to set us on our way into our true Light and to find and express our own unique vein of gold.
We are our own heroes and I lovingly and empathetically invite you to write your own magical tale with an amazing and happy ending.
With Love from my heart,
