"We are Conduits of Light here to Inspire Transformation" - Jemma
Lets face it. We are all Game changers.
At some point we have realized that there is more to this journey we call life than meets the eye.
Once we step onto our path it, it can often be very challenging and we wonder why the hell we signed up in the first place!!
But we have come for a reason. And we are all in this together.
Isn't that awesome?!
Sign up for my weekly Inspiration and lets work together and play together to build a strong community of support and Love to help each other SHINE our light out into the world, where it is needed most.
To be the Conduits of Love and Light that inspire transformation and contribute to the happiness of all beings.
If we want to experience life in a different more fulfilled, joyfully ecstatic, abundant way to what we ever have in the past, then we must DECIDE to change things up and be vigilant with our commitment to doing so.
Places, people, routines, interactions and experiences all hold an emotional imprint of the past. The body and emotions become trained to feel a certain way in certain situations and if you’re not super vigilant with your mind, you will repeat the same actions, reactions and behaviors that keep you forever stuck in that same limited holding pattern.
So how to change it?
It can be as simple as observing your routines behaviors and deciding to do something different.
For example - I live in probably the most relaxed place in AUSTRALIA where people come from all over the world just to BE. But I have always worked hard here. Always creating and often over giving, so for me, it’s easy to fall into an old pattern of go! go! go! then crash and burn. I have a relationship history here too so I’m used to feeling and reacting a certain way in certain places.
I had to decide, with clarity and commitment, to make different choices for myself. To choose to react in different ways. To break the chains to programs of the past and re-write new ones that serve me now.
I decided to change yoga studios, do Pilates and barre instead of so much Vinyasa. (Thankyou @space_foundation I’m loving every minute!).
Each day I try to change the order I do things in. It can be as simple as not looking at social media for the first hour of your morning so you’re not setting your day up by comparing yourself to others or caring what anyone thinks.
It’ll take some discipline, it’ll be uncomfortable for a while but with persistence you will create a new groove for yourself and create the reality you want and deserve!
If you want true change, real change - you have to DECIDE to change.
Otherwise you are creating your future from an emotional imprint of your past. And guess what. If you always do, what you’ve always done. You’ll always get, what you’ve always got.
Be a pioneer of your future, not a prisoner of your past.
You can do it. Just decide.
When my Soul speaks from her innocence and purity, without any influence, opinions or ideas of others..
She simply says...
"I love being under a Southern Sky.
It’s so expansive and brilliant, you feel like you can literally reach up and touch the stars at the centre of our divine origins, or hitch a ride on the Milky Way.
She says that we think way too much. That I think too much and even though I’m good at mastering my mind, it still masters me sometimes.
And that’s ok.
My ego still has its training wheels on and my Soul is teaching it how to ride.
It says that the greatest practices I have ever learned are the easiest. The most profound wisdom is the simplest.
My soul says that she’s proud of me. That I’m fulfilling my mission well and that my mission is to remember, that my mission is to have fun!
My soul says RELAX. Your power is in your authenticity. Breath deep. Trust more, do less.
My soul says that I have the option to choose celebration over suffering any moment I choose. That transformation can happen from a place of joy, not pain.
And my Soul reminds me time and time again, that when I speak from my essence instead of my mind - the truth that is universal, isn’t heard by those around me - it’s deeply felt.
And my Soul reminds me that Gratitude is the key to Joy and living a Masterful life.
My Soul reminds me it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks. Just be loving and kind, act with integrity, communicate with clarity, be your best and know who you are.
She reminds me to ask myself the daily question - Who do I want to be? How do I want to feel? How do I want to experience, this miraculous Life? Then feel myself BE it.
My soul speaks to me every moment of every day. It’s my guiding Allie that walks like an old friend and Wise Woman consistently by my side. She knows everything I need to know. She has the keys to everything that I need to heal. She is the keeper of my destiny and conductor of the orchestra of my life.
I’ve spent years of my life ignoring her, years only hearing half of what she has to say. And now when she speaks. I Listen. And I trust. And I act.
On her infinite and eternal wisdom that is always whispering gently in my heart."
In my experience, whenever I do something for myself that I know is of great benefit to my being and how I experience life, the abundance always comes.
I learnt that very early on in my path many many years ago when I paid a teacher $1000 to learn what for me was a life changing tool. At the time it felt like a fortune but I could feel it would benefit me greatly.
They assured me to watch and wait for the reward from the Universe for trusting myself that this is what I needed, and sure enough within 3 weeks over $10000 miraculously came my way from somewhere I never could have imagined!
It was a powerful lesson and one I have never forgotten.
So now, I am always super generous with myself. And I always find myself completely taken care of.
Self development and knowledge comes in many ways. Sometimes through an exchange of money, sometimes through other ways. It’s all an exchange of energy.
Knowledge becomes wisdom once it has been experienced and practiced.
One thing I know to be true for me, is that life has my back. She is looking after me because I have pledged myself in service to her and all of her children. Including myself.
When I listen to nature, she supports me.
Taro Taylor love you brother 📷
Let’s take a moment to talk about fear..
What is fear?
It’s an emotional response that is created by focusing on something usually in our future, based on something that has occurred in our past. A lot of the time it’s not even ours - but an empathic response to feeling the fear of collective.
Sometimes, those things are obvious. Sometimes we feel fear, anxiety or even experience phobias in situations that don’t seem to make sense to us. Subconscious programs from this lifetime or others that have lodged themselves into our cellular being and continue to re create the patterns of the past, as we move into what could potentially be a clean slate for our future.
Crippled by the past we become a prisoner of it, instead of being a pioneer of our future.
Fear feels massive when’s it taking hold of us, because it is massive! We are tested in these moneys and faced with a powerful choice. We are given an opportunity to boldly and courageously re write the old inherited programmes of the past. Most especially the hardest one to shift - which is the one we have written for ourselves.
The mind will tell us that if we engage in certain circumstances, we will recreate uncomfortable feelings of the past. The ego hates discomfort so it’ll do anything it can to avoid it.
The Soul knows a thing or two though.. it’s has already transcended the fear and patiently awaits while the mind catches up.
The best way to overcome the limitations of the mind, that are totally holding us back in life in ways we probably don’t even realise, is to face the limitations head on, reclaim the powerful master that you are and transform the shit out of them!!! 😂
The way to successfully re create our past experiences isn’t to avoid similar experiences, but to face them. With curiosity, willingness, determination and yes most likely some fear!
It’s normal. But we dont want fear ruling us. We want to get comfortable with the fear, welcome it like an old friend here to assist us on our evolution - and move forward anyways.
We are all so ready. This is why this it comes up so fiercely for us at times. And it’s ok.
If we can just find the deep trust in ourselves, the unwavering trust in the intelligence of life, and in the wisdom of our Soul - then we can know we are ready to face our fears, transcend our limitations and receive all that is here for us and more.
We always get exactly what we need and there is never more than we can handle.
As the old saying goes - we can choose to feel our fear, and do it anyway. Be a pioneer of our future and not a prisoner to our past. Re write the programme to one where we are at least curious and willing, and at best completely limitless and free.
As I climb high through the clouds and rise above the Apus, I begin the first leg of the long journey home.
It’s been 6 months since I left the shores of Byron Bay, my home in Australia. And while I am excited to return, I already feel the longing in my heart for my Andean home.
I made a Despacho the night before leaving our house in the Sacred Valley and as I blessed the elements and prayed into the k’intus I wept.
Not because I will miss these Mountains and all of the beings that are nestled within them - I can’t miss something that has become a part of me - but with gratitude for all that they have and continue to bestow upon me.
Never have I felt the force of such powerful allies. Masters and Priestesses of light. Cosmic guides, our Pachamama. All continuously by my side. Protecting, loving, and supporting me on my path. Unconditionally and Eternally.
So wherever my Gypsy life on the road takes me on this magnificent planet of ours, I am never separate from these beings. The Apus are in my blood. They are in my heart. They are the masters of my Soul. I am them. They are me. And they come with me wherever I go. I only need to connect and call on them whenever I need assistance.
There is never goodbye, only see you soon. And I feel deeply grateful for the depth of this connection. To know in every cell of my being that we are never, ever alone.
See you soon my beautiful Australian familia! I am so looking forward to immersing in the healing embrace of our Larimar blue Oceans, Mama Cocha. And my beloved Andes - April next year!
If I continue to live this Sacred life walking the path of my heart, I know I am always home.
Are you becoming a victim to your emotional state?
Without even realising it most of us are running around in life as a slave to our own programme.
That’s right our OWN programme.
We tend to think about the programming and conditioning that comes from outside of ourselves. The memories and emotions of past events. The systems and environments that we grow up in.
But what if we were able to become stronger than our environment?
What if we were able to see that our reality is created by our emotional state and that we are keeping ourselves locked into our emotional state by repeating the same thoughts, feelings and behaviours day after day.
It’s such a delicate balance because it’s necessary to feel whatever arises to the depths of its origin. To be patient with ourselves as we move through life’s big processes knowing that there are much greater purposes at play. To relax knowing that everything is happening exactly it it should.
At the same time we want to develop emotional mastery.
We want to create how we feel, rather than how we feel being created by an emotional response to our own self written programmes and limiting beliefs.
So how do we switch our emotional state?
With commitment and practice. By identifying those thoughts and behaviours that are keeping us locked into how we are experiencing life and making a choice to change them.
Simply deciding not to complain, not to blame will powerfully begin to re write your programme.
It will be uncomfortable as you are moving into the unknown. It will feel tiring. The body and mind will want to fall back into it easy and familiar patterns.
But with practice, things will quickly begin to shift.
And you’ll be a a step closer from victimhood to mastery, putting you back in the drivers seat of your chariot for life.
Emotional strength means becoming stronger than your environment and deciding to call out our programmes and change our responses to them, begins the process of rewriting new ones and re wiring the hardware of our mind.
Creating the life you want to experience from the inside out.
Not the other way around.🌳
This morning I made the pilgrimage to Tanits Cave in Ibiza. Tanit is the Goddess of the Island. She was, and still is, the Goddess of sexuality, fertility and transformation. Ibiza was her Island until the Roman emperor Vespasian suppressed her following in AD74.
To this day Tanit is still worshiped in Ibiza, and her Cave Temple remains a sanctuary where ritual and ceremony is still regularly practiced.
This island has abundantly showered with me so many blessings this summer and I have called on Tanits assistance many times in my work. She has always obliged me with her grace and beauty, so today I needed to meet her essence, in her Temple. And say Thankyou.
Much like my experience at Glastonbury Tor, finding the cave was a mission in itself. Intuitively guided (but thrown off he scent by google maps!! Don’t trust technology over your heart..) we made the pilgrimage up the Sacred crystal Mountain to her temple.
Before entering I offered a k’intu - 3 coca leaves to give gratitude for having been invited and to ask permission to enter. The energy was thick with thousands of years of ritual and ceremony. There was a sweet, yet powerful presence. I could feel the devotion to the beautiful Priestess embedded into the limestone caverns. Offerings of all kinds lovingly placed throughout the temple cave.
Earlier, making the pilgrimage up the mountain to the cave, I had heard music. An angelic lullaby that instilled a feeling of reverie within me. As soon as I entered the cave, the melody that came to me, began to come from within me. A beautiful song that vibrated in the cave walls.
I set about making my offerings. Using my Medicine cup, I cleansed my self from the pool of crystalline water gathered on cave floor. I prayed to Tanit - asking for strength and renewed vitality, thanking her for her guardianship, I prayed for blessings for a clear and safe path ahead. Then I went about opening my Mesa and offering Sacred Smoke.
It’s amazing you know. Without even ‘thinking’ about it I just somehow knew what to do. I had no knowledge of protocols, rights or wrongs. I simply felt into my heart, got my mind out of the way and trusted that my hands knew exactly what to do. I noticed the mind jump in at one point trying to make me question what I was intuitively guided to do. Cheeky mind. This is how it operates and holds us back from really trusting ourselves and our innate wisdom.
It’s all within us. So many times I’m asked - how did you learn what you know to do in Ceremony? Honestly - I find it a challenge to answer. My Maestros never sat me down and ‘taught’ me anything. In fact they showed me frustratingly little! 😂 But that was the point. As a student we must learn to watch. To observe absolutely everything. To practice. To know and trust ourselves. To ask what we need to know yes, but more importantly to develop such a deep connection with ourselves and the beings that support us though our prayers that it’s actually the beings we are praying to that guide us to our inner wisdom and teach us from within. They give us the keys that if we trust, will unlock what we most want and need to know.
I can actually say that often the beings have shown me the rituals, THEN I’ve had the ritual confirmed by my teachers. Amazing. It’s because the wisdom is a universal truth that resides in the fabric of existence. We only need to learn to tap into it and trust what we hear, see and feel. The way the ancients did. It’s all the same wisdom.
If we stand back and wait til we have perfected something - we will be waiting forever. We are never done learning so we may as well be humbly but confidently practicing what we know so our knowledge in action becomes the authentic wisdom we seek.
I shared my song with a beautiful local woman, the guardian of the cave. I loved that she was so enthralled at this blonde lady, carrying an Andean tradition, making offerings and singing lullaby’s in her Goddesses temple. She didn’t care for protocol. She only cared for the humility and purity of heart she could see in me. So much so that she gave me her phone number and told me next time I come, even out of opening hours, to call her and she will open the temple to me. I offered to share a Despacho offering next time I come. She was beside herself with excitement at the prospect.
So I’m already preparing for my next visit to Tanits Temple, and in the meantime I will carry her essence in my Mesa (she gifted me some khuyas - sacred stones) and deeply in my heart.
I feel I have received another string in my bow on my Path as a Present day Priestess.
Thank you Tanit and Ibiza, for your abundant blessings and generous Love.
Moving from empathic victimhood to empathic Mastery means getting comfortable with your feelings. And becoming a Master of transformation.
Frustration, confusion, boredom and loneliness is a sign of our transformation and indicates how rapidly we are transforming.
Each feeling is only difficult and overwhelming when we avoid feeling it.
Ask yourself.. What if I welcomed these heavy feelings as an indication of my profound transformation and evolution?
What if what I am feeling is not mine but as the master that I am, I am feeling it for the collective?
And in this mastery, I have come here to help resolve this, and all I may have inherited, for the well being of all?
The collective shifts when there is a tipping point in consciousness.
Resolving frustration, confusion, loneliness and boredom or any feelings that arise within our being in response to our life experiences, contributes to us reaching that tipping point.
We can stop being victims when we realise that what we are feeling does not belong to us or that our karma is not ours, it’s collective.
You are the fire and the flames of transformation.
Transforming heavy energies by simply welcoming them and accepting them as the light that you are, is the greatest service you can offer to the evolution of our planet and her children.
And as the Masters that we are, we have come here to help resolve the collective past so that we can clear it for ourselves and future generations to come.
This moment was one of the most powerful and pivotal points in my life.
As it has been one of the most powerful and pivotal points in my life.
For many years, walking my path, reviewing my life, what served my greatest evolution, what didn’t. Refining my wisdom (and still going..) honing my intuition, my knowing and my trust.
Then one day a being appeared to me in a dream with such force that it shook me from my sleep.
He yelled his name at me with a booming voice ‘Inti Punku!’ And showed me this place in the dream, exactly to the fine detail that you see here in this picture today.
I had never heard of this place or of this Master but I knew I had been summoned. I didn’t even know it existed but once I explained the dream to my maestros and they shared about its existence, I knew I had to go.
But there was preparation.
Before I could visit him he gave me crystal clear instruction. He showed me his steps and his door way - the Inti Punku (translates to sungate) and said ‘How willing and courageous are you to completely let go of everything from your past that no longer serves you? When you do, you may step through my Sungate where all you have been waiting for and more is on the other side.
I then was given a process to compete before I could visit. Every day in meditation I had to review my life and decide what had to go. Make a commitment to change. Then practice my decisions each day until step by step I would finally reach the top. Once I was at the top, I was ready.
And so a month and a heap of massive processes later I made the 5 hour climb skyward from Ollantaytambo.
It was one of the most remarkable initiations of my life. And once there I realised I was being received on the alter of my guiding Apu - Wakai Wilka - her name means Sacred Tears.
This Majestic Apu, the Queen, has helped me embody the Wisdom of complete trust and surrender to life. Of being instead of trying or doing. I call on her daily to help me remember.
So now in my service I love to help others remember. And a part of that remembering is by offering immersion’s, retreats and ceremonies to bring you back to the infinite truth of who you really are and lovingly arm you with some tools of light to assist you on your path.

Meeting the shadow.
As I walked along a small strip of what remains of Berlin Wall today, I felt the heaviness of the history I really know very little about.
What was real for me in that moment was the feeling that came up for me from out of the blue, very unexpectedly, as I crossed onto what was the East side of the wall. A searing pain that suddenly burned hot in the back of my neck, and made my head feel like it was in a vice.
Then as I crossed onto the west side my head start to spin with vertigo and I felt very nauseous. I could hear many voices, see many people, perceive way too many desperate situations as if they all belonged to me. Of course they didn’t and they don’t.
This is something I encounter in different ways at many of the Sacred Sites I visit. I don’t think I would class the Berlin Wall as Sacred by definition but in a way it is. The plight of the people, the need for integration of the soul back to source was very real indeed. That work is sacred. And as light workers we have put our hands up to help.
Step one, and perhaps the biggest step you can possibly make, is to understand that as the empathic being you, and I, are that these thoughts and feelings don’t belong to you. But, as they come to you, you can CHOOSE to witness, integrate and transform them on behalf of the beings that never could. For all those that for one reason or another aren’t able. It doesn’t need a dramatic story. In fact if you give it a dramatic story, you are only serving the Egos need to strengthen its identity.
So my action was to ground myself to the Earth and breathe. To lay my hands on the wall and pray. To offer forgiveness, reconciliation and love to every soul that needed it. To let them know they were seen and heard. To offer them light of the highest vibration and invite them willingly to return to it with an offer of liberation.
Moving beyond dualism and separation, from the Shadow of the Past and into the Oneness of Light.
