Are you feeling Soul tired?

Are you feeling Soul tired?

Are you tired? I don’t mean a lack of sleep tired. I mean that bone deep soul weary type tired.

I have been speaking to so many people recently that are feeling this way – and I too am navigating as best as I can. If it is any consolation it seems to be very much a collective energy, although if you have a lot of personal “stuff” going on this will be massively elevated.

Humanity is at this huge crossroads; we know that the world that we are currently living in is not functioning in a helpful or supportive way on any level. We all know that there is a change that is needed. Trying to see how change can be brought about or what can be done is a harder part of this to navigate, without losing heart. This almost crisis point energy is playing out for so many people right now and when we get caught in focusing on the negative things that we see, our view of our world and the world in general can really put us into a bit of a funk.

As if all that is not enough, we have been bombarded with a massive amount of solar radiation in the last few weeks, with almost incessant solar flares and CME’s. There are also some very intense astrological energies playing out around us.

We are also knee deep in Eclipse Season, with the recent Lunar eclipse and heading for the Solar Eclipse that is taking place on 8th April.  Looking at these energetic events from the perspective of a radio, these signals, that we normally receive, and our bodies are used to rolling with as part and parcel of our human journey, are literally being interrupted or completely blocked.

When a lunar eclipse occurs the moon’s energy is interrupted or blocked and in Solar eclipses the sun’s energy is interrupted or blocked. So, our systems get a bit confused when this happens. It’s like when a radio goes slightly off station and that annoying static is uncomfortable, or when the light suddenly goes out and we have to find our way around in the dark for a minute or two.  Momentarily we are having a blast of one energy while the other is decreased and if you are particularly tired or have a sensitivity to a specific energy then even minor disruptions can cause an uneasy feeling or

 I talk about this energy a lot, and there is no escaping the fact that it IS happening, and that it DOES affect us. Now please don’t think for a second that this is always in a negative way, and often it is highly motivational and transformative energy.

Often it can motivate people to rest by invoking tiredness, it can also motivate us by highlighting things in our lives that are not in alignment with what we need. This can be a highly uncomfortable process and can lead to tough decisions being made, where we need to dig deep into our soul to see exactly what is best for us. It can motivate us to get out of our comfort zone and take on new challenges.

Whether you are feeling this or not it will be affecting you on some level and during these intense times it is always a clever idea to practice good energy maintenance, to keep an eye on what is happening and how we are feeling. In fact, checking in with how you are feeling regularly and often can be a game changer and allow you to alleviate the more difficult symptoms of these energies.

I am using my own self care package of Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh to support me through these energies. It came as a bit of a surprise when it popped into my awareness, as normally it is a winter solstice journey.  However, it is becoming apparent that these three elements are perfect when we need to dig deep and work through any of the emotional aspects and thought patterns including outdated beliefs that we are being offered a chance of shifting with the illumination of the energies bathing the planet right now.

 There are some interesting articles out there on the energies that this upcoming Solar eclipse will bring.  If you are remotely sensitive to these energies, and I am guessing if you have read this far that you are! I highly recommend reading them and getting really in tune with what is happening and finding a way to best support yourself through this.

 I will also make the Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh package available via the website should you wish to invoke the support of these transformational products. 

* Gold cultivates self worth, addresses addictive behaviours and increases our inner light. 

* Frankincense cultivates spiritual maturity while calming inner chaos and assisting with compulsive tendencies

* Myrrh promotes forgiveness of self and others while addressing our deepest fears and insecurities. 

So, if YOU are feeling bone and soul weary or way more tired than usual, dig deep and remember that this too shall pass!

As always with Gold & Starlight love

Raise your Vibration?

Raise your Vibration?

What does that even mean?

I’ve been pondering on this one even more so recently – the world is full of buzz words right now and it’s so hard not to use them- and we sort of get the  vibe of them but often it’s not as clear or obvious what it’s really about.

One phrase that gets banded about quite a lot and I use a lot is “raising your vibration” and to be honest I am really not best friends with it – and I can feel your why question drifting into my energy field !!! 

Well one reason is that using the word “raising” in its self suggests being higher – better – more which in turn suggests that we are not “enough” as we are and that couldn’t be further from the truth. 

I also hear so many people use it in connection with feeling better – i.e. when things aren’t going right or your feeling out of sorts, then “raise that vibration” and everything will change – which again suggests that we are not holding a positive enough vibe. Quite frankly to hit someone who’s feeling pretty crappy with a glib phrase that infers if they plant a big smile on their face and think happy high vibe thoughts all will be well, is not an ideal way to go. In fact it can have the completely opposite effect. 

So what is this vibration and raising it all about?

Have you ever stopped to think about it? 

Well your vibration is your energetic frequency- we all have our own frequencies and those frequencies in turn have their own range. We resonate with others who are also in a similar frequency – think of being a radio tuner and when someone is out with our bandwidth it’s like listening to a lot of white noise and static and our energies just don’t feel compatible.

Everything in our world is energy and we are constantly interacting with and reacting to these energies. 

If you look on your body as being a container for those energies – and everything you do has an effect on that body and therefore alters the frequency. The food you eat, the environment you’re in , lifestyle, thought patterns, external factors such as jobs and people who are part of our lives whether full time or intermittently.

Absolutely everything holds relevance to our energetic frequency. 

We are a bit like a battery really, (a rechargeable one thankfully!) and I’m sure you’re very familiar with being around people or attending events that completely drain your energy and that you’re intimate with how that feels!  At these times we literally need to take quiet time to rest and recharge until our energy is restored enough to able us to function again. 

I’m sure your equally familiar with those “high vibe” people and events that when your involved with them your literally buzzing with energy and feel on top of the world – and you will also then be familiar with the slump we feel once we are no longer plugged into that energy and we drop down into our own energy again. 

That doesn’t mean that there is anything wrong with our unique vibration , it doesn’t even mean that the other person vibrates at a “higher” or “better” frequency than ours and it’s actually probably more of a sharing of energies that are compatible that have created that synergistic “high vibe” and it’s not something sustainable for us individually – which then opens up the topic of the collective consciousness and vibration but that is definitely going down the rabbit hole and not quite where I’m aiming for today! 

So our energies like that of a battery can be drained or charged and if  we always remain as we are then there is no huge problem. 

There does come a time when things change when there are more “things” for the battery to run if you like, and it/we get drained very quickly- so the energies that we are holding expand but our own personal battery/ energy container /body just can’t sustain them. 

So what are these “extra’s”?

Well we only have to look at our world to see the different manmade frequencies that our bodies have to work within compared to say 50 years ago, there is Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Internet, High, low and medium frequency radio waves – and that is probably just skimming the surface.

Then due to the earths placement at this time we are in a huge space of energetic turbulence. Think of Solar flares and coronal mass ejections, the shift in the Schumaann resonance and that is only covering a tiny fragment of the energies that are constantly bombarding us on a constant basis.

This is when we require an energy recalibration and need to upgrade our physical bodies in order to hold this new vibration – this new software if you like.  All these changes our bodies have to adapt and fine tune to so that we can utilise the ones that are beneficial for us and live more compatibly with the ones that are less so “helpful” The body is a remarkable piece of equipment and its adaptability is what has allowed for our continuing inhabitation of the Earth.

Anything that we CAN do to assist our bodies in adapting to these frequencies is of immense help. There are many ways to upgrade our bodies so that they can run these different and yes higher frequencies – remember higher or lower frequencies do not equate with “good” or “bad” BUT our physical bodies need to be able to roll with a greater frequency range than they have ever done and one of the most effective practices I have found for this is running the frequency of Gold in my system. I will be running the next Fragments of Gold journey soon but in the meantime if you would like to know a little bit more about Gold and how its energy can assist us in these times of massively expanded frequencies you can sign up for my eBook and acquaint yourself with Gold – here is where you can access this https://sallyarthursemotionalwellbeing.activehosted.com/f/25

I would love to hear how this sits with you and if it’s something you too have been pondering

As always

Animal Guides – The Panther –  Stars & EeeShel Trinity Essences

Animal Guides – The Panther – Stars & EeeShel Trinity Essences

I had a strange initiation into the realm of animal spirit guides that again, in hindsight, goes further back than first thought-  as always seems to be the case. There is a theme I promise! Although I will meander a little, as you do!

I had been so distraught at the loss of my little border collie cross companion Corrie, when I was 11 that my family refused point blank to have another dog – or any pet really. I tried several times to persuade them but to no avail.

When I was  around 16 there was something strange that went on and suddenly my mum arrived home and we were embracing the tiniest black kitten into our home. My mum, being a rather old school and blatantly obvious with names – called her Sooty. 

She always remained a dainty soul and I referred  to her as “my little black panther” She would often sleep on my bed and I assisted her through 2 very unexpected litters when she uncharacteristically decided that outdoors was ok so when she reached about 4 years old. Incidentally we kept one of the kittens who my mum insisted on calling “Tigger” – yes you’ve guessed it – he was a striped tabby! 

Sooty opened the flood gates 

Before too long, I managed to persuade them to let me have a dog. So for many years we had a bit of a menagerie going on, but hey I digress.  

I had never given spirit or totem animals much thought. As a participant in a spiritual development group – the weeks topic was animal guides – so off we went on a journey to meet ours. It was a very unremarkable journey and I met with a black panther – who walked slowly and deliberately towards the water’s edge between us and fixed her gaze on me. That was it, very mundane and definitely not insightful. 

Then a day or two later “it” began , the dreams, nightmares even, where I saw myself as a young antelope like creature and every time I had the dream this black panther with her staring gaze would course after me and pounce on the back of my neck, dragging me to the ground and then literally squeezing the life out of me. 

Each time the short and fast dream was exactly the same. 

Then I began having strange reactions to sounds, one I remember distinctly was when a motor bike zoomed up behind me – and as it passed me – I froze – and recoiled my neck in – shoulders up round my ears type reaction. I was physically waiting on the “bite” which was incredibly surreal. This went on for several days with me reacting to sounds, always, and only those that  originated from behind me. 

Encouraged by mentors to explore – I did and this small black panther  arrived – showing me my nightmares from her perspective – a starving mother desperate to feed her young I was easy picking and my life sacrifice allowed multiple life’s to continue and her showing up with gratitude opened a whole new world of understanding for me.

For many years she walked beside me – small , sleek – and when there was ever an instance where I had to be critically aware of my surroundings or those around me she walked purposely in front of me and sat there – alerting me and encouraging decrement . 

This continued for many years until I visited Belize and Guatemala – we visited the Mayan Temples in Lamanai, Belize, including the Jaguar Temple. Followed shortly after by a rather arduous mid-day jungle treck to the Jaguar caves in Guatemala – after being part of a Mayan protection ceremony! 

I had a bizarre experience where my trusty panther guide rose up in front of me and showed herself in a much taller and more robust form than she had ever been – winding herself around me in that way felines so , she reared up behind me and rather than pouncing – she merged with my energy completely.  It was incredibly powerful and incredibly emotional. I felt stronger than I have ever done. 

We interestingly also visited Cozumel in Mexico where we just happened to find our way to the Temple of the Moon Goddess Ixchel, also known as the Jaguar goddess.

( Yes the rain forest DOES live up to its name!)

So to explain further – Ixchel is The Moon goddess, who worshipped the sun god and bore him the 4 star Jaguar sons of the 4 directions.  ( panthers -more subtly -and jaguars coats  actually resemble star constellations! )

I had been drawn to having a tattoo years earlier which I found out was Mayan symbology of the sun and the moon and yet this was the first time I had heard the personal connection to Ixchel . 

Coming on the back of my Jaguar experience it was hard to ignore the relationship. 

I was therefore guided to rename my vibrational essence range and Ixchel trinity became the phonetic spelling of EeeShel Trinity Essences.  If you know me you will know of my love of 3’s and the trinity often links to mind, body, spirit and also in this case the Sun, Moon and Stars!

There are have been many other synchronistic events that have arrived and many are ongoing. Which brings me back to what prompted me to write this post in the first place!

We were recently decorating our bedroom, I use the term loosely as it was literally taken back to the brick to be re-done! Anyway I was in search for a panther  painting for the walls but was drawing a blank until I saw an absolutely amazing one named “Pantheress” by Kerry Darlington not only beautiful the symbology of the merging of the protectress energy with the feminine but Kerry’s description of the art work really spoke to me and I quote ” Many cultures have been fascinated by the symbolism of black panthers. They’ve been thought to symbolize the feminine, the dark mother, the dark of the moon; Darkness, death and rebirth from it;

Seen as protector of the universe. On a Shamanic level, they are said to aid Astral Travel. I depicted the panther here as a guardian of the feminine and wanted the background to have an abstract otherworldly feel, so that it could be in space, part of a dream, or deep underwater”

As you can see this fitted my own experience with panther /Jaguar perfectly! It is rather beautiful isn’t it?

So in a round a bout way I got there! The prompt was hanging the photograph and the sharing is my personal experience with the Panther / Jaguar – it is surreal to feel her when she is around, you can feel her stealth, her purposeful gait, the ripple of every sinew in her body as she steps forward. Her exquisite examination of the surroundings, and yet her unwavering calmness. Her ability to alert me to situations, or people that I may not have picked up on – I feel truly blessed that she walks with me.

Do you have experiences of your animal guide and how has working with them altered your life?

Why Fragments of Gold

Why Fragments of Gold

As many of you know Gold is one of my “Things” my passion and what an amazing journey I have had with Gold! If you have been around for a while you probably know this but I completely get that many folks here will not know how I got to be so passionate about this amazing element. 

Gold has been on my radar since around 2000 or so – consciously that is and it’s hard to say exactly how it piqued my interest in the first place but wiggling it’s way in it definitely got my attention! 

I began having weird interactions with Gold via meditation around 2009/10 and my Egyptian interest coupled with curiosity opened up a bit of a weird one with bi – location, Mono atomic gold and ongoing insights into just what Gold could bring to me on an energetic level. 

The insights came and went as did the practice but each time I revisited the journey it gifted me something more in-depth and intriguing than the last one. 

So the notion of Fragments of Gold was in essence born around 2011 but it was little more than a self-exploration practice that was developing for me.

Now I can be a bit slow and obstinate and unless synchronicities are bountiful and kind of wave wiggle themselves in my face introducing themselves  I can dig my heels in – waiting for ” higher confirmation” that I am indeed on the right track. ( thankfully I’m getting better at listening!) 

That higher confirmation came in the rather unusual format of a musical event that was to be held in Glasgow Cathedral – this was to be held on 30th August 2014.

The event only caught my eye as it was called “Fragments of Gold”  – I hummed and hawed over whether I should go or not – bought a ticket and still couldn’t make my mind up. 

It was some classical composition composed by DJ Goldie – who was a complete unknown to me – after a Google search finding out that he is big in the Drum and Base music field which was definitely NOT my thing! 

There was that little itch at my brain that tweaking of the Golden threads that I couldn’t help notice – Fragments of Gold – Goldie with his gold capped teeth – to perform an ancient classical piece in the sacred space of Glasgow Cathedral which is a known node on the Glasgow Network of aligned sites ( ley lines and sacred sites were another of my passions!) 

Then things started to get a little weird – it took me ages to share this as it feels a bit egotistical – and yet it feels so synchronistically aligned. 

Anyway the dreams began and over a few days they played out – each time ending  in a shout out from Goldie looking to connect with a person with a specific  mix of

tattoo’s – I know crazy right ? 

Each time in the dream there would be a few people put themselves forward and each time they weren’t the right ones – he refined the criteria and voila they matched mine – I tried ignoring it but each time something or someone else in the dream would push me forward- and it would end when Goldie acknowledged me by simply saying “it’s you” 

It was, in my mind overtly egotistical and I couldn’t think for the life of me why I would even want to connect with a gold toothed – wild – drum and base guy! 

Yet the fragments of Gold kept swirling in my awareness   , I gave in and decided to go anyway – it wasn’t going to be a long event  so what was there to lose? Not to mention I might get a bit of peace from the crazy dreams! 

On the night I was still not feeling the vibe –  so kicked on a comfy pair of Jeans and a top threw an old cardi on just incase it rained – and a comfy pair of trainers as it was a bit of a hike to the cathedral. 

It was a warm night and I was a bit frazzled by the time I got there – so feeling decidedly grumpy and frumpy for better way of describing it I took a seat and watched the

carefully  arranged pendulums swish to and fro over blocks that resembled white Piano keys – a friendly sort of guy sat next to me and struck up a conversation- which to be frank bored me really quickly as it was pulling my attention from the vibe that was in the room – so polite hmm’s and occasional nodding was my mode.

Suddenly a ripple went round the room and this unrecognisable guy walked down the nearby aisle.  The guy next to me informed me “there he is” so I presumed he meant Goldie – he looked nothing like the kind of menacing photos from his acting roles that I’d seen on the internet – thankfully!

Then all of a sudden he broke into a run and bounced right over to me – gave me the mother of all bear hugs – said “you look like you need a hug “ and then bounced off into the throng of people again! 

The hug was remarkable not a superficial type one but a strong heart connected one – and definitely not the kind I would expect from a stranger – Let alone a celebrity one! 

The event was amazing and to listen to how Goldie channeled the music – getting up in the night to compose having no notion of exactly how it had arrived – just that that’s the way it happens! 

The music was filtered to perfection as the acoustics of the cathedral carried it in its fullness and it was certainly a worthwhile experience however the validations of Fragments of Gold was enough to spur me on to taking the journey to a whole new level – Gold insights often arrive in the middle of the night so capturing the fullness of this can take time and effort, but it’s literally worth its weight in Gold ! 

So this is how my signature programme came to its title of Fragments of Gold – a phenomenal experience and yet it still took time for more of the components to filter through – I offered my first “Fragments of Gold” journey back in 2019 and have been running these via short journeys regularly since then.

There is another shift in this work coming and a deepening of those Fragments of Gold and I will be announcing this soon – Autumn 2022.

I am grateful for this amazing experience that anchored that name for me without a shadow of a doubt. I am grateful for Gold and how it has shown me so much of its long forgotten amazingness and I am grateful for those who have joined me to journey with Gold and to embrace its specialness.

Who do you see when you look in the mirror?

Who do you see when you look in the mirror?

Mirrors eh!  Love them or hate them they are interesting – intriguing and also very enlightening. 

When you look into the mirror – who do you see?  

Do you recognise the person looking back at you?

Do you look at them with love or with criticism ~ or worse ~ condemnation?

Do you see only flaws or perhaps disappointment as the years shift our features into something or someone we may feel we don’t know? 

Or do you see a soul looking back at you through your eyes 

Searching for a glimmer of kindness ~ love ~ recognition even? 

How do you treat that person looking back at you from the mirror? Do you pay them very little attention – do you judge and belittle – do you treat them in the way you would abhor to treat another human being?

What if I remind you that the person in the mirror – the reflection looking back at you – is your greatest ally ~ the one person who doesn’t desert you ~ your greatest teacher ~ your confidante ~ the person who knows every little detail about you – the times you have cried yourself to sleep – the times you have gone out of your way to help others unnoticed ~ your uncertainties and your fears. 

Perhaps that is why you criticise that reflection ~ presuming it to be “like others” ready to pounce and use your flaws and insecurities against you? 

What if I told you that this person staring right back at you is the one you need to love the most ~ the one you need to be gentle and kind with ~ the one who is always patiently waiting for your approval? 

If you are looking for approval- look in the mirror 

If you are looking for love – look in the mirror 

If you are looking for compassion look in the mirror

If you are looking for inspiration look in the mirror 

Looking in the mirror we look to ourselves ~ to our deepest wisdom ~ to our infinite well of unconditional love and compassion. Your greatest teacher looks back at you when you look in the mirror!

What if I told you that everything you don’t like in your life is a mirror? A mirror reflecting back at you the need to look within ~ to look to your own guidance~ to love yourself? 

Until we can face the external what ever it may be – with unconditional love and an understanding that all discord comes from a place of lack of love ~ then until we find that place within ~ our own painful hurts will be triggered ~ no amount of external work or avoidance ~ will heal the places where we deeply need to love ourselves. 

Learning to love yourself is the greatest gift of all – when you can love yourself unconditionally , there is so much love within that it can’t help overflow and touch everything we do and everyone we meet with that beautiful magic.

Until you learn to love yourself you will always have a space where no matter how much love you receive from others there will still be that aching empty space within.

What if I told you that loving yourself is much easier than you think – it begins with small steps and the more you take these small steps the bigger the impact on your wellbeing.

Start by saying something kind to yourself – If you don’t find it easy to say ” I love you” try “thank you” and if you struggle with that try to stop any negative “thought comments” in their track ….. we say things like ” my hair is a mess” ” you look – Tired/Pale/bored/ too old/ too young/too thin/too fat ….add adjectives to suit your own personal situation. I am sure you will be well aware of the dialogue you have with yourself.

So take some time to appreciate the beautiful soul that looks back at you through your eyes via the lens of the mirror and begin to share love and gratitude with them – watch how life becomes easier and how others respond in a positive way to the changes and the love they can sense emanating from you via the soulful mirror of your eyes ……

As always, with Starlight love
