When you change something in you your outside world will shift in relationship to your inner shift.

When teaching my courses and during individual treatments I often get asked ‘How do I know my Chakras are clear?’ or ‘How do I know this is working?’ My answer is ‘Look at your response to your outer world’ and that will tell you what is changing. 

Begin to look at the full picture, if there is an energetic block in your system where is that playing out in your life or to turn it around ‘if X is happening in your life, where is that energy stored / not at ease within your body on a physical, mental or emotional level’.

From my own experience, I find that when some people come initially for a healing treatment they are focused on their outer world. They are filtering the world from the outside in – they are focused on what is happening to them, what someone said, what someone did, who is to blame, what is lacking in their life and few may actually talk about what they feel inside of themselves. They may feel that if they could only change the people or circumstances in their life they would feel fulfilled, safer, happier and worthy. They think that it is all happening out there, outside of themselves, a place where they have no control over what is happening or how they are reacting.

They know what they think, but they are out of touch with what they feel. When I say ‘what do you feel’ or ‘what did you feel within your body’ they often have a confused look as if they can find the answer in their head. The attention (intention) needs to come down into the rest of their body where the emotions are held – the heart, the tummy etc. From there we are becoming more in tune with how we are feeling and responding to what is happening in our lives.

Inner work works

I have found through my own life, that the outer world is a reflection of my inner world (my inner state of consciousness).  When this moved from being a concept to something I experienced – I started moving from the Victim / Martyr archetype into a stronger individual who decided to be accountable and responsible for herself. Now I’m not saying it happened over night at the wave of a magic wand. It happened piece by piece as I held and healed those parts of me that hurt. Guess where these parts where hiding? Inside of me.

So, if you wish to change something in your life, you must look within yourself to alter your attitudes and beliefs in order for your outer world to change.  Change yourself on the inside and watch your outer world change. You must make the change and not wait for others to change. To have something you have never had before, you must do something you have never done before.

So see what happens outside of you when they change the pattern inside of yourself.  Amazing things can happen.  The outcome seemingly effortless sometimes (although a lot of dedicated hours of inner work has to be done to get to this effortless point!)

Little Things Work

Our daily habits, behaviours and thoughts are the things which hold us back. Therefore, I find little changes over a period of time can work. Of course, I’m all for taking a big leap and free falling as there can be massive rewards in that but initially for those who find that idea incomprehensible – small steps every day and they will all add up. So here’s some suggestions to get you reflecting on your inner world!

  • Your daily reiki / magnified healing self treatment will help you become aware of what is going on within in
  • Meditation – the mind may not want to be quiet but you’ll learn not to play with the monkey mind with practice.
  • Being honest about how you feel to yourself
  • Love & heal those parts of you that you try to keep hidden.
  • Identify your patterns, own them and change them
  • Practice Mindfulness during your day whether it is when you are eating, washing dishes, walking or looking at your computer
  • Tune into yourself each morning and ask yourself ‘How do I feel’, what is my intention for the day

One step at a time… the subtle changes make the biggest difference and sometimes it takes time, patience, persistence and perseverance.
