Time Travelling With The Soul Detective Lorraine Flaherty

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.” _Maya Angelou

Oh life, what a wonderful playground.

If only we understood how pointless it is to take ourselves too seriously. Perhaps if we did, we could truly be innocent, like children, and start to enjoy ourselves and our mission in a very delightful way.

Some of us awaken or are very committed to finding our mission, so called Purpose. To be fulfilled. This process can be as simple as opening your eyes every morning, or as complicated as understanding why each iris is absolutely unique in its patterns.

We might run around in circles trying to find it, we might deny it, but truthfully, deep down, we know there is something beyond explanation that we long for.

But how do we find out about the mysteries of the soul? What have we chosen for our path?

Accessing ones blueprint can be a very complex achievement. For those lucky enough to have figured it out, life will change into magical daily miracles, but for those who are still lost looking for their true mission it can be painful and confusing to engage in the game of living.

Thankfully we have people like Lorraine, whose mission is help others to find theirs.

I absolutely love how synchronicities work, and not long after my very first Akashic records reading I started to wonder about karmic contracts and direction on my soul mission. I still feel like I’m missing on something and that I needed to find out more about this matter. So there she was, great universe, you as you get, it’s very effective to live in the effortlessly present moment of allowing yourself to receive.

Lorraine Flaherty, The Soul Detective

Lorraine works with hypnosis to access ones truths, traveling back in time, exploring past lives, karmic contracts, previous traumas, as well as going into the future in finding out what your Higher Self has to reveal and what your purpose in this incarnation is. What lessons your soul chose to learn, and how you can smooth and understand your inner world.

She basically enables you to explore more about your own mysteries.

This amazing interview with the Soul detective is surely one to watch and figure out if you are ready to explore more about your inner journeys.

“We are not human beings on a spiritual journey. We are spiritual beings on a human journey.”Stephen R. Covey 

Once you learn about your mission, you can truly be of service, you can choose to flourish and live your dream, to be in sync with the planet and your soul.

Lorraine has worked in this field for over 31 years and has also written a book called “Healing with Past life therapy”. If you are reading this article, it is probably not a coincidence, as nothing is. Maybe you chose this opportunity to find out more about the mystery within you.

I’ll be sure to explore this inner journey with Lorraine and will trust in her divine gift to allow me to explore pieces of my puzzle that have yet to come together. I’ll be sure to write about this experience and share it with you all.

She also shared with us some of her paintings that came from the Ayahuasca experience see the gallery below:

The Music Warrior Nahko Bear

“Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it a rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul.”_ Unknown 

Some people will hear the call…  When they do, it will be so powerfully loud that there will be no other way to deal with it rather than them proudly following it.

Some people will lead you… It’s just the way it is. They will have such a strong mission; they have to wear the warrior’s armour and live under it.

Nahko Bear is with no doubt a warrior, a music warrior. His spirit, bright and shining, is on a mission, and part of this mission is to awaken the people.  Awakenings can be of various kinds and can happen in various ways. Nahko is here to bring a magical type, starting with the power of his music, then going into his message and his kindness.

When I first heard his songs, I felt my soul immediately expand in awe and wonder.

Aloha, Aloha Ke Akua, Ke Akua, Aloha, Aloha, Kuleana, Kuleana.” If you haven’t heard their music, here is a link to this wonderful song full of life and spirit.

Nahko Bear -The Music Warrior

When you meet a warrior you are not sure what to expect, especially if this warrior makes sure everyone feels he is just like everyone else and that we are all the same and all connected.

His soul is young and playful, and at the same time full of life, joy and light; loads of light. He is very passionate for his mission and dedicated to his fans and his Ohana band (Hawaiian name for family).

Interviewing Nahko was very inspiring, and getting to know him a little and the whole band was a great experience. Nahko is very transparent; what you see is what you get. He is present, and his kindness is seen in the way he treats the fans with such care and respect.

You can listen to the whole interview here:

Nahko is like a big kid very playful , that’s a big personality trait on open hearted people

“I think our music promotes the bridging of all tribes,” Nahko says. “The lyrics and the stories and our energy as a group break down people’s walls. You’ll find us in the most unique places on earth because it’s real, raw, and honest storytelling about what we’ve been through and what we believe in. And that’s why people connect with it. I think that’s the most important thing you can do with music.”_ Nahko Bear

Seeing Nahko and the Medicine for the People perform live was certainly an experience I’ll never forget; they were just unbelievably amazing, and you can read more about this here.

The Art Of Touching The Soul With Andrew Fretwell

“Ultimate freedom has nothing to do with your life circumstances – it is the freedom of allowing the self to dissolve into the waves of the ocean. It is the freedom that is born through one’s absolute trust in life.” Richard Rudd

Following on from the DNA activation after the Gene Keys experience, I had the immense pleasure of meeting Andy. Funny how, without knowing why, you can meet someone and feel so connected to them, and start referring to them in an intimate way.

So, let’s give you some more information. Andrew Farewell is an OFT teacher who is working alongside Richard Rudd with the Gene Keys project.

After watching Richard talking about Gene Keys for the first time on Saturday 14th of March, I was very touched by the information. I was also very happy to know there are more people who know and experience the energy downloads and upgrades in the human body.

After the talk, I was very excited about this new discovery and ready to dive into the DNA activation process; that’s when I first met Andy. I remember very well the feeling it created in my energetic field. A feeling of connection, a deep heart connection. I started to talk to him about the talk and how amazed I was by it, and the more we talked the more my heart started to expand. His words have this effect on you; they sink into your being. Why? Because they are full of kindness and deep inner truth.

It didn’t take long until my eyes started watering. I didn’t know what was happening there and then, but I knew it was pure magic.

Andy has this energy and the only way to explain it is to watch and hear from him in his interview:

I feel very blessed for having the chance to interview him. Don’t get me wrong, I feel blessed for everyone I have interviewed; every human being is very unique and wonderful. I truly think we are all the same, no one is better than anyone.

It is, though, very inspiring when you meet someone like Andrew, someone in this frequency shining his truth and speaking from the heart..

The very first thing that amazed me about his way of operating was the fact he is so switched on to everyone’s needs, empathising with their feelings. He has a way of acknowledging what you are saying and really listening; making sure his reply comforts you. It’s such a natural thing for him to behave in this way – I guess it’s part of his unconscious Gene keys characteristics.

Another great thing I discovered by meeting Andrew is OFTOriginal Feeling Touch; which is a whole new subject, and I’ll be sure to write about it once I experience it. So far, I can say what I read about it: “OFT is a journey of discovery of unfolding what is inside of us. OFT is a reminder of what you have always known deep down in your being. In fact, OFT is Touching the Essence of You”.

I’m very interested in finding out more about this practice. Andrew Fratwell is a worldwide specialist in OFT.

The Art Of Feeding The Soul With Stacy Lynn Floyd

So, I have a confession to make: I still eat junk food. Yes, I stopped drinking, I meditate every day, and I try to be mindful and have awareness. When it comes to food, though, I’m still not in the process of feeding my body with the best it requires.

Well, maybe I am. I’ve always tried to listen to my body and went for the nourishment that I thought I needed. But it’s no easy task letting go of some unhealthy habits and addictions that reflect emotional issues when it comes to food.

I have been reluctant to look into my eating habits and discover a link between those and my physical and spiritual health; although I have taken some detox diets in the past and experienced the countless benefits of it. It has been a problem of mine to embrace more mindful eating habits.

Speaking with Stacy has surely made me acknowledge that it might be time to look into what feeds the soul.

Feeding your soul; that’s certainly a very interesting topic, so let’s start with getting to know about Stacy and her Journey. Please click on the link below to find out more.

As discussed in the interview, everything is an illusion and nothing is real. But at the same time, we are still attached to the illusion and the collective consciousness behind it that inevitably brings a set of beliefs to it. Unfortunately, what we feed ourselves does have an impact on our body – good or bad – and that’s when a specialist like Stacy comes into action.

Stacy says “Everyone has a different need, and all dietary requirements vary from person to person. What may be good for me may not be good for you.”

Our uniqueness as nature’s creations is also reflected in how we relate to food and how it affects us.

I’m still very new to the art of feeding the soul. I’m also no expert on all of the impact that processed food has on our body, and how that relates to ones spiritual wellbeing. I do have my superfood regime, which includes a glass of water with half a lemon mixed with Spirulina and Chrorella. I have that first thing in the morning, every day. I thought it was a very good commitment; but maybe it is time to look into food from a different perspective.

It’s really best to hear from Stacy more on the subject itself.

After so much to consider, I have a question for myself which you may share. Am I ready to start feeding my soul? There is one way to find out…. Getting right into it.

Meditation Talk With Marco Dean

I first met Marco Dean in February 2014; I was passing by this famous holistic shop in Covent Garden called Mysteries and looking for something interesting to do, maybe a new course, when I came across a free meditation class.

As I looked at the picture of this man, I couldn’t help but feel a bit curious about the whole thing.  “Mmm I wonder what this class will be like?”

Up to that point, I hadn’t had much meditation practise – apart from a few courses I had taken in the previous year (2013) – so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect or what kind of meditation he would be teaching.

Little did I know how much that class would dramatically change my life.

tumblr_maf3eiVFr41rekltko1_500

“A quiet mind is all you need. All else will happen rightly, once your mind is quiet. As the sun on rising makes the world active, so does self-awareness affect changes in the mind. In the light of calm and steady self-awareness, inner energies wake up and work miracles without any effort on your part.”_Nisargadatta Maharaj

 

Marco held a class on alpha meditation, with shamanic background; with very simple meditation techniques that can be practiced for as little as five minutes a day, and can definitely have an effect on your way of thinking. Not because it changes what you think, but because it enables your consciousness to operate on a better level.

It’s like exercising.. You exercise to have a healthy body, and you eat well, you brush your teeth to make them clean. Well, with meditation, you exercise your brain! It’s weird to explain, as it’s different for everyone.

Nonetheless, meditation has been scientifically proven to enrich and benefit your brain capacity as well as having various other related health benefits.

Quantum physics studies have also acknowledged the power of the mind in creating your own reality. Your thoughts are interacting with everything around you, down to the very atoms.

Therefore, when you start meditating and perfecting your consciousness, “things”start happening.

Anyway, everyone has to start from some point, and I was lucky enough to take part in this weekly meditation class for a year, and now I meditate every day.

Marco is a very interesting character, very mysterious and quirky; it took me a while to get him. That’s the thing with mystics; they make you think, they puzzle your mind, and they don’t give you any answers. Instead, they make you question everything and find out for yourself.

Here is our interview with Marco. I hope you enjoy it.

One of the things I love to hear from Marco in class is the freedom he gives you when you ask a question.

For instance, when asked “How do I know I’m doing it right? Have I reached Alpha?”

The Answer was always the same “You don’t, no one actually knows, it’s subjective, it’s different for everyone – there is no right or wrong.”

Here, you find another short video where we talk about meditation.

If I could have everyone around the world practicing something on a daily basis, it would be meditation. It helps to find yourself, your one truth, it makes you grow and connect to your inner powers and discover that life has much more to offer than what you thought it had.

It will change you into who you are meant to be, and it will open the doors for an amazing journey into self-discovery and empowerment.

Life Coaching With Simon Crowe

Simon Crowe is a Life coach. That’s the best term to define his line of work.

The words life and coach put together always intrigued me. Do we need a coach to learn how to live?

Do we need help to find what is missing? To succeed? To strive?

I’ve always been a very “independent” person, says everyone who meets me. Maybe coming and “making” in a foreign Country so far away from my family is one of the give aways of my independency, but I had never had coaching before – or had I?
The homosapiens in the animal kingdom need nurturing. We won’t be able to talk, write, count or learn society rules unless we learn from one another. From the day we are born, we are interdependent.. We learn so that we can be independent, but just how independent are we?

Life doesn’t make any sense without interdependence. We need each other, and the sooner we learn that, the better for us all_ Erik Erikson

 

holding hands

At present, I have this theory.. See if you follow.. If we are the universe, God within ourselves etc., we can accomplish anything we want and we have the power for it within ourselves. However, if we were meant to do everything by ourselves, why would we have the need to have a whole external creation? If we were meant to learn everything from ourselves, there would be no need for the existence of other people in the first place. And if we are all ONE, they are also parts of ourselves playing different roles in this infinite of realities. This is not so straightforward.

Simon has a way of triggering some questions, questions we already had but maybe were afraid to ask; even better with his way of working, he enables us to have clarity and to look for the answers within.

I guess the best way to understand his work is to take a look at his interview, below:


It takes me back to a thing he said to me “Having a clear purpose is something very powerful, it creates an energy around it that drives things into being.”

It makes perfect sense to me. Thanks to people like Simon, if you are willing to commit and expand your dream into extraordinary proportions, you can have some help – life coaching.

Life is not straightforward at all, and thanks to our unique magnificence, we encounter the people we need in our path to encourage us along our journey.

I recently read an article written by Gary Z McGee where a balance between co-dependency and independency is crucial for spiritual growth.

“By reconnecting with the cosmos, by embracing your interdependence, you not only free yourself from the burden of slavery, you also free yourself from the burden of freedom. The world suddenly goes from being a thing that needs to be conquered to a thing that needs to be surrendered to. Indeed, it is when you embrace your interdependence for the first time that you discover, as Alan Watts did, that you’re no longer a victim of the world, you are the world. And that’s a spiritual connection like no other.” – Gary Z McGee

A Kundalini Journey With Maren Lander

“The purpose of life is to watch and experience living. To enjoy living every moment of it. And to live in environments, which are calm, quiet, slow, sophisticated, elegant. Just to be. Whether you are naked or you have a golden robe on you, that doesn’t make any difference. The ideal purpose of your life is that you are grateful – great and full – that you are alive, and you enjoy it.”  Yogi Bhajan

kundalini-reiki

I have to say I’m very new to Kundalini Yoga. I had my first class in October 2014. I had heard all sorts of things about it and read many online articles going on and on about it.. So I had to find out for myself.

I expected it to be a long process before I started experiencing the so-called Kundalini raising, but hey I’m a fast mover so I’m not surprised how quickly I got right into the Rainbow Snake rising fire!

London is a big place, so you would think it’s easy to find all sorts of things here, but it took me a while until I managed to find a good Kundalini Yoga teacher. It didn’t take me long until I felt so inspired by Maren’s words that I had to ask if she would give us the pleasure of interviewing her.

Maren_Lander_about
Maren Lander Kundalini Yoga Teacher

 

Maren is one of those people that, as I like to say, carry light wherever they go! Her Aura has this encouraging and friendly glow to it.

Her journey is definitely inspiring. You can watch the whole interview here.

While I was interviewing Maren, (our very first interviewee for the Power Within Us) I could relate to her words and fast track changes she had experienced.

Like Maren, I too stopped drinking after I started to practice Kundalini Yoga frequently, and noticed a shift in my relationships. When you change, people around you may not understand what you are going through; a big part of society doesn’t understand ones need to break free and find their soul mission.

Some will never get what we mean; every experience is unique and very personal. When I heard Maren saying after her first Kundalini Yoga class that she had this amazing feeling and on the way back from it she was cycling home and singing Wahe Guru at the top of her lungs completely hooked, I could only imagine how she felt (I’ve had my own experiences with the practice which I’ll save for another article).

The point is, Kundalini Yoga is a very powerful tool towards enlightenment. It enables you to find yourself and your truth. If you struggle with Self-Love and Self-acceptance, you can also rely on Kundalini to guide you into a strong inner transformation. It will work with the very core of your being.

Maren has her own say about the Kundalini relationship and Self-Love. Here is another video with inspirational words about it.

Kundali and Love are directly related. Bearing in mind that Kundalini connects you to the source and the source energy is pure love, to experience unconditional love you must first love and accept yourself unconditionally. Therefore, Self-Love is the key to this process.
