Galway A Short Visit

 We took a trip to Galway,

 Last Saturday and arrived early afternoon,

 It looked as interesting as ever,

 I wandered along streets and found myself outside this church,

 Memories flooded back and I went inside. Sitting down I remembered the night five years ago when I wandered in here. It was the evening after I had had the first part of my Reconnection. Something drew me to the church and when I entered there was a  concert of Hyden music with a wonderful choir and orchestra. ( From my diary, "My energy responded to the music. It was as if the music was playing my energy.Whenever I noticed 'myseld ' and tried to control it, or make something happen 'It' would bring me back to the present and the movement of energy in my body . Energy up and down my spine. A strong feeling of connection between the palms of my hands. a feeling of energy flowing over and back. Amazement." )

 My energy was high with the reawakened memories.

 And everything took on a special glow.



 All seemed magical and full of promise.
So grateful for the memories and the reminders of such great connections and Reconnections.

Shifting to High Vibrations

We move through different energy states or frequencies each day. We may wake up in great form (high frequency or energy) maybe we are feeling courageous and feel like we can tackle the world, that is until something knocks us off balance. Maybe someone tells us a story that just knocks the wind out of our sails. Maybe they tell us of how our ideas can't work. You know what I mean something just deflates us. Now imagine that you can recognise what is happening to you , you are conscious and you have the skill to pull yourself right back up into courageousness, You have the resources to navigate these set backs. You understand energy (or frequency ) and know how to raise your vibrations. Imagine how much easier life could be.
This is what Lester Levenson discovered, he found a simple way to 'Let Go ' of the feelings that keep us stuck in low energy states. He showed us how to Release feelings that keep us in low energy states such as apathy,  fear,  grief, and  anger. When we release these feelings we naturally move into higher states of energy such as courageousness, acceptance or peace. In these higher stated we have much more energy available to us, we feel much more empowered and ready to take risks in life. We have the courage to be vulnerable and put ourselves out there even when it is difficult. 
Each time we 'Let Go' of our thoughts and become Quiet we access higher energy, some people call this wisdom, we become more intuitive and begin to trust answers that just 'pop into our heads.
There are lots of methods to quieten our minds I practise T'ai Chi and meditate which both allow me to become more conscious of the noise in my head, releasing is a great addition to these methods as it is easy to do while I am out and about in the world.
What an amazing time to be alive when all these esoteric practises are now widely available so we can all access our own innate wisdom and live happy fulfilled lives.
Learn how to do this at our next workshop.

High States Of Energy

Our body and energy field can be bright and and shinning radiating light as in the image above.
When every cell of our body, when the spaces between the cells, when our body fluid, and our energy all vibrate with PEACE or LOVE we are literally enlightened and this light shines out.

We see it in the halos around saints. We feel in the presence of people who are in a high state of energy. We may not be able to see the light but we feel 'something' and our spirits are lifted in their presence.
We can develop this presence, this is the reason we practise, t'ai chi, yoga, meditation, praying and  releasing to mention just a few methods.
Through  our daily practise we learn to quieten our minds and access peace, this peace is always present but usually it is overlooked because our noisy minds occupy our attention. It is 'work' to tune in to the quiet space. It takes patience and determination but the rewards are immense. When we can recognise this peace and access it it allows life to become much more relaxed , more spontaneous, more alive and fun.
It becomes easier to let go of our fears and anxieties our anger and frustration because the 'light' of peace dissipates these lower energy states. It is not that we need to try to dissipate the lower energy it dissolves all by itself . As soon as we shift to a higher energy we realise that we are actually fine that there is no reason to fear or worry etc. We can relax and watch as our 'problems ' sort themselves out.
I had no idea that life could be this effortless, but I'm learning day by day as I practise peace that more and more ease is possible.
If you would like to explore these possibilities for yourself come and join us in Blackrock .

Raising Your Energy To Peace And Abundance A Workshop

We are often led to believe that Peace and Abundance are mutually exclusive, that we can  have peace and tranquillity only if we forgo abundance. I have been discovering that this belief is false. Through 'Letting Go' of feelings of lack and limitation I have discovered Peace inside myself and a freedom to experience more and more abundance.
I have been sharing these discoveries with others who are also discovering that it is possible to have More Peace, More Joy and More Abundance by dropping thoughts and feelings that hold us in low energy. Apathy, fear , grief , anger these low energy stated rob us of energy, keep us feeling that we are victims, that we do not have control over our emotions or our lives.
When we learn to release these feelings our energy moves up into higher states. We feel courageous acceptance and peace in these states we have an abundant supply of energy and discover opportunities which were hidden while we were locked in low energy.
If you would like to experience your true courageous nature, to feel more love, joy and abundance in your life join us on March 4th  for a day of exploration in shifting your energy to higher and higher state.
Lester Levenson had a huge awakening and developed a method of releasing feelings that healed his body and allowed him to live a happy fulfilled life (read his story below).
We will explore his teachings and learn how to use them in our lives so we too can have happy abundant fulfilled lives.

Lester . . .
“Wait a minute!” he thought. “If happiness is when I’m experiencing love for the other one, then that means happiness is a feeling within me.
“And if I felt unloving in the past? Well, I know I can’t change the past, but could I possibly correct the feeling now inside myself? Could I change the feeling to love now?” He decided to try it. He looked at his most recent unhappiness, the day he left the hospital.
“First,” he asked himself, “was I experiencing a lack of love that day?”
“Yes,” he answered aloud. “Nobody gave a damn about me, not the nurses, not the orderlies, not even Dr. Schultz. They did not care. As sick as I was, they threw me out, sent me home to die so they wouldn’t have to watch one of their failures . . . well, the hell with them. They can all go to hell.” He was shocked at the vehemence in his voice. His body trembled with rage and he felt weak. He really hated the doctor: He could feel it burning in his chest. “Oh, boy,” he thought, “this sure isn’t love.”
“Well, can I change it?” he asked. “Is it possible to turn it into love for the doctor?”
“Hell, no,” he thought, “why should I? What did he ever do to deserve any love?”
“That’s not the point,” he answered himself. “The point is not whether he deserves love. The point is, can you do it? Is it possible to simply change a feeling of hatred into a feeling of love—not for the benefit of the other person but for yourself?”
As the thought crossed his mind, he felt something break loose in his chest. A gentle easing, a sense of dissolving, and the burning sensation was gone. He didn’t trust it at first. It seemed too easy, so he pictured again the scene with Dr. Schultz in the hospital. He was surprised to find that it brought only a mild feeling of resentment rather than the previous intense burning hatred. He wondered if he could do it again.
“Lets see,” he thought, “what did I just do? . . . Oh, yes. Can I change this feeling of resentment into a feeling of love?” He chuckled as he felt the resentment dissolve in his chest. Then it was totally gone and he was happy. He thought of Dr. Schultz again, pictured him in his mind and felt happy, even loving. He saw now, reliving that last meeting, how the doctor had hated to tell him the things he had to say. He could feel the doctor’s pain at having to tell a young man in the prime of his life that his life was over. “Dr. Schultz, you son-of-a-gun,” he said, grinning, “I love you.”
“Well, it worked on that one,” he thought. “If my theory is sound, then it should work on everything.” Eagerly, he began trying it on other moments, and the results were consistently the same. Each time that he asked himself if he could change the feeling of hostility or anger or hatred to one of love, the dissolving process took place. Sometimes he had to repeat it over and over until he felt only love for the person. At times, the entire process would take only a minute or two; at other times, it might take him hours of working on a particular person or event before his feelings were only loving, but he would doggedly stay with it until it was completed on each person and each incident.
His entire life came up for review in bits and pieces. One by one, he changed to love all the old hurts and disappointments. He began to feel stronger as the weight of his pain dropped away. He was happier than he had ever been in his entire life, and he kept it going, feeling even more happiness with each new thing corrected.
