"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.
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.
