Living a spiritual life is about being consciously aware of balancing all forms of life in co-operation with nature and creation within and without.
the ability to fully focus intent
equal sharing of energy and support
taking the wisdom forward from your experience not the experience itself. This keeps you from making comparisons, repeating lessons that are non-productive and allows space for healing.
Evaluating your perceptions of where you have been, are, and where you want to go. This is the process of moving from recovery to discovery.
Commitment to self and others. Your karma is never just about yourself however you can only do your part of the healing in a lesson and all of life is a lesson.
Moving out of separation towards self and others. Example: if you are in judgement towards your pain, you are in the way of the healing.
Realising that judgement on any level contributes to separation. This increases lower vibrations upon earth.
One of the most difficult processes of healing is taking off the masks, and allowing your true self-expression in all situations. This is also known as empowerment.
Love - the highest healing power. Love is a natural essence of the soul identified within the self and mirrored outwardly as a source of creation.
Understanding emotions and feelings. Emotions are manifested energy of thought prompted by the ego. Feelings are the soul’s expression to stimuli you learn to respond to rather than react to. When these concepts are understood, healing them is more immediate.
One transforms by meeting needs on all levels - physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. This in turn creates wholeness in all areas of life.
Some questions you may ask yourself: - what motivates your intents? - what is your vision towards your life? - how can you maintain constancy of heart and mind? - how does your vision also heal others?
You can choose to be present and by doing this you use discernment to choose what does and what does not fit for you. You are able then to set healthy boundaries for yourself.
You can change and grow and choose how that change will look, living a shared story of creation. Each being is a strand in that cosmic web.
Intent calls you into action that is motivated, clear and respectful. This links you to a full and free responsibility.
The spiral if life links us to the power of the past and the hopes of the future. You are not alone on the journey.
Earth harmony supports life, acknowledges and heals the shadows, connects wisdom and inspires creative forces of understanding that you are a spiritual being having an earthly experience, not the other way around.
Our purpose is to respond to creation by: - being productive and inventive, - to explore your deepest self, - be creative, - the right use of energy, and - removing the wreckage of separation through grace.
Acknowledging self and others in meaningful ways opens new possibilities towards unity within and without.
Share your passion of life with self and others, thus reclaiming the love we may have forgotten to feel. The greatest pain to spirit is the love we refuse to share.
Healing is about creating space to let go and move to another level of being.
Metaphysics means "beyond the physical". Metaphysics is a combination of science, religion, and philosophy. It covers all aspects of the universe and its functions.
It is exploration of the universal knowledge within.
Spiritual growth allows good health in body, mind, and spirit. The nirvana spiritual healing teaching centre is a place to freely share without judgement and to release fears created from misconceptions of prejudices on all levels.
The best way to heal yourself is to be yourself. When we understand who we are with acceptance we are no longer in separateness with the self or our world. Metaphysics is about healing and spiritually growing in harmony with the earth, the universe, and all beings. To walk the path of light is to express and live unconditional love.

An affirmation is a positive thought consciously chosen to be immersed in consciousness to produce a certain desired result.
An affirmation is spoken or written as if the result were already present. It directs one's mind and behavior and therefore, one's life.
Usually phrased in the first person present tense with a positive active verb, an affirmation describes that which is desired as already accomplished.
Affirmations are also called positive thinking, positive self-talk statements, positive programming, or thought selection.
Meditation is a method of attaining spiritual development through disciplines of concentration - practices that involve thinking about meaning-and/or contemplation - practices that control thought by focusing on an object that is internal or external to the mediator.
Meditation practices can also be categorized by the aspect of human experience addressed.
1. Intellectual - a deep mental understanding of reality 2. Emotional - an expansion of positive emotions 3. Bodily - complete absorption in movement 4. Action - the practice of a particular kind of skill
In addition to helping a person to attain spiritual development, meditation also is used practically for the purpose of bettering one's experience of life. Meditation works by providing a non-distracting focusing experience and disengagement from the continuous impressions of normal living. This disengagement allows relaxation by altering the rhythm of the brain waves.
Relaxing and focusing reduces stress and tension and provides benefits such as more positive emotions and outlook. The ability to use focused attention disconnects thinking and emotional systems from each other. This allows a state of continued relaxed alertness.
"Walk Softly Upon the Earth"
"Think of how you can do things, not how you can't"
"You can only trust yourself to make a decision"
"Moving from Recovery to Discovery"
Hope is not an emotion, it's a mental concept.
Walk Softly Upon the Earth
Reach deep down into the great earth Point towards the expanded sky We are the connection between two powers Know them both and you do not wander
From which side do you enter my place Choose wisely or know why I guard the gate on dancing toes And laugh at life and what is missed
The road may lead you past our door But we know where you will go For we have been there too As above it is below
Shamanism can be identified as a science of the spirit.
The medicine wheel is one way to shamanically recall the knowledge, wisdom and ways of the natural world, nature and the spirit in all things. Living in sacredness to all of life.
The medicine wheel is a modality that allows one to journey and retrieve the knowledge and experiences they need to develop on all levels and to heal on all levels.
I teach from a celtic background and the medicine wheel is set in that tradition in my work.
The medicine wheel consists of five items, usually stones , between the directional totems. Stationary and temporary wheels can be made.
Each direction gets a totem that is for the journeys that are going to be taken; it is the story of the wheel for that group or tribes work. Individual journeys unfold from there.
When working the wheel we enter from the east; however, the journey does not always start from there. More on this in a moment, so read on.
The medicine wheel consists of east which is the element of air, and is new beginnings, inspirations new, and renewal. It is the path of opening the way, which is giving the opportunity to find direction and purpose to self and life.
The south which is the element of fire, is changing ways, purification, relationships, courage and faith. It is the path of coming into being which is accessing your purposes and search for knowledge; learning new skills.
The west, which is the element of water, is of the place of dreams, goals, emotions, feelings, fertility, and inner peace. It is the path of passing within to achieve understanding, assimilate wisdom, heal and take responsibility to life.
The north, which is the element of earth, is about wisdom, healing, practicality, clarity and perception. It is the path of wisdom, giving supportive knowledge within all things, acceptance and silence.
The path of inspiration is the direction of northeast.
The path of strength is found in the southeast for confidence, beauty, self awareness, balance of body and spirit and a warrior who acts as a guardian.
The path of insight is in the southwest for balance, connections, receptivity, compassion and deeper knowledge.
The path of cleansing is in the northwest and provides self clarification, true sight, reprocessing, and justice.
The centre is the element of spirit , where all paths come together in strength, stability, continuity and hearth upon the earth.
To make the wheel for a workshop is a process that takes whatever time it needs to take.
Upon arrival to a location i first receive the items to create the wheel foundation. Then i wait for the call which can come at any time and can stop and start.
When the call comes i am told by spirit and nature to walk in a direction and then i will receive an item that will go in that direction of the wheel. When i receive it i leave an offering such as dried flowers or bird seed where i got the item with thanks. I return to the wheel with it, smudge and place it in the direction it is meant for. The call may continue from there or may stop and start throughout the journey.
Each item i receive as a totem, the direction and element purposes and the order in which they were received as well as the time and distance it takes to complete the journey is all part of the wheel story that the students have to interpret as part of their lessons. I will then also give them my interpretation to make sure it is all received.
Even though the wheel story is for everyone involved it is also individualized throughout the work.
I always find this an interesting and amazing process within the working of the wheel and journey stories as they are very powerful , enlightening and amazing interactions with the great earth and her many creatures.
Our traumas are experienced on various levels, the trauma however, is still in the past.
One may have ongoing healing within the trauma that is present and will carry to the future when one replays the mental images and emotional reactions and responses from the heart, spirit and soul which the body may manifest.
We cannot hope that our history is better as it already was what it was.
You can only create a more hopeful present and future when you stop hoping for a better past.
This applies to individuals but also the world, repeated unhealed and unlearned karma comes from living in the past rather than allowing the past to be a journey towards wholeness.
The moon is the cauldron of dreams shrouded in the myth and mystery beneath the external shadows visions of the unknown revealed
Moon fire, cool fire, luminous surrounded by mist and magick moving with the sovereignty of darkness between time and space
Who shall know her? Those who dance with the lady emerging, surging, empowered calling the secrets of the night
Love need never die. Love is eternal and all beings of good heart know and live this truth, becoming fully realized beings living with the great earth know this is the way. We believe in the teachings of love to give us the strength to guide us , the power to sustain us, and the wisdom to heal us. In so doing we are able to offer the same to all of life. The truth of love cannot be denied
All life forms are incredible just by being. Open your heart to all of life with the realization that every being on their path, whether you understand them or not, has a purpose...allow yourself to embrace the courage to go through every experience until all that is left is truth...in this manner we can co-create harmony, it is the intent that bridges a loving reality...allow the voices of life to have a listening presence with you...embrace all feelings knowing the magik of life.
In some ages people have listened to life around them and learned. In this age many have turned away from the land and her creatures, and are not listening to the perfect cycles and balance of life...you are surrounded by loving spirits of nature that support your journey...embody yourself in this reality and remember to be a listening presence
We need to be bigger than we wish for, better than we hope for, put life into our goals, and know that it is not always about being recognized by the masses, but to be constant in quiet sacredness, for karma is never just about one being. So make each footstep, and each breath one of peace.
Spirituality is our personal response to life mysteries and how to understand and develop our soul as our whole self with the support, knowledge and wisdom of like mind and hearted as well as spiritual teachers both physical and non-physical as your guides. You embrace your personal laws and cosmic laws, find your place in life and give back that support in some manner.
Because there is so much trauma in the world from generation to generation, if greif healing is not completed as much as possible the soul, or sophia as we call it - the soul of the world, is not grief healed and perpetuates individually and collectively.
The world and earth is wrapped in far too much unhealed grief. To take an active part in the process of this transition and transmutation may be a daunting task but a well worth one for all of life past, present, and future
