Personal Empowerment

I”M TERRIFIED OF BEING MY TRUE SELF

And I’m not alone.

Most of the human population feel the same way, they just don’t know it. We live in a world built on fakery, façade and ego. None of it is real. Virtually none of it is true, and certainly not loving. 

This is why we are petrified. We are so far removed from the truth that to get even a glimpse of it shakes us to our bones. 

The thought of dropping all our defences, of being the full expression of love that we are, is akin to a dream where you go to school naked. We have all had that one. You feel completely exposed, vulnerable and raw. Much like our true nature – pure and innocent. 

I don’t blame or judge myself or us. We are dealing with the conditioning that we came into. Wars, conflict, emotional suppression, division, famine, abuse and all manner of destructive inversions. We are doing our best to survive in a chaotic painful world.

I’m beginning to ask the question of how things can be different. How can we be our true selves? How can we sit with our vulnerability and not dissolve into an overwhelmed mess when we open the door to show who we truly are?

Or is that the point? 

Perhaps all of these walls we have built are meant to come crumbling down. The destruction is supposed to crack us open to reveal the treasure inside. 

There is goodness inside of you. This much I know is true. It’s time to let it come out.

You do however have free will, as do I. 

By choosing to be your true self your world will change undeniably, and you might perceive that as a threat. The reality is that whatever is false will drop away. It is likely to be painful, emotional and challenging. This is why I’m terrified. 

I know what it means and my human self wants to resist feeling. ANYTHING BUT FEELING. Deep down however, I know that through feeling lies true freedom. Being 100% my true, loving self is freedom. Is peace. Is fulfilment, joy and happiness. This is my desired destination. 

The true self wears its heart on its sleeve. It is transparent, loving and kind. It takes action. It celebrates. It does what is right, not what is easy. It lives in honesty and integrity. It loves and cares. It reveals, collaborates and honours life. It dances and shakes. Ultimately it loves, but not as humans currently know love. 

That’s why I’m terrified of being my true self. Perhaps you are too?

Because when I love, so totally and freely, when I put myself out in the world for everyone to see and feel, what is going to happen?

Will I be rejected? Judged? Criticised? Humiliated? 

Will I be laughed at? Outcast? Ridiculed? Ignored?

The truth is, probably all of those things and more. Because humans don’t know real love. They think they do (I thought I did) but we don’t. This false matrix does not promote love, it inverts and corrupts it. This is why being it is so scary. We don’t know what might happen.

Yet it’s not a valid reason to shy away and hide yourself. What is more painful, not being your true self, or the fear of what others might think if you do?

Fear shouldn’t be the reason not to act. That is cowardice. 

Courage takes heart. It requires love. To love beyond the fear and limitation, and to dare to be all of you. In every moment. Starting right now. 

It’s not going to be an easy ride, there are bound to be bumps in the road. But it’s the open road to freedom I’m choosing to drive, and not the fear bound dead end society is headed down. 

I’m willing to be terrified and do it anyway. How about you?

Remember,

Breathe the change you wish to see in the world.

STOP BITING YOUR LIP AND SAY WHAT YOU REALLY THINK

I’ve bitten my lip twice in two days. As it just happened again eating breakfast I paused and noticed. It was painful yes, but more than that it was a sign. Literally. Stop biting your lip! It hurts!


Truth is – it does hurt. If you don’t share what’s on your mind it will rot you from the inside out. Slowly but surely, it will eat you alive.


It’s no surprise we hold back. Culturally we have been conditioned to – particularly in the UK. Don’t rock the boat, keep the peace, be nice. All that nonsense. But more than that, we now have cancel culture – where saying something remotely different, or which is interpreted in certain way – automatically turns you into a monster and hunted out of the village with pitchforks… quite literally.


I’ve dabbled with saying what I really think. If you’ve read my writing or seen my videos you probably think I’m quite astute at it. But what if I told you that’s probably 50% of what I think. I’m making that number up but the truth is, even at this point, I’m still not fully unfiltered and raw in sharing my honest thoughts. Why? Good question. The number one thing that stops us all. Fear. 


Fear of rejection, being cancelled, being outcast, thought of as crazy, upsetting someone, fear of attack, abandonment, reputational damage, losing friends/family, losing credibility, wanting to keep the peace, fear of confrontation…the list goes on. 


What it boils down to is the fear of death – specifically ego death.


I can’t say that because….


They will be upset if….


Just keep it to yourself….


That’s how the story goes. Keep schtum and you’ll be safe. And guess what, the ego likes safety. Loves it! Yet this illusion of safety is eventually what will lead to our downfall. The lack of capacity that the ego (or controlling mind) has to adapt and change. If it had it’s way, everything would be the same and we’d all live happily ever after.


Not going to happen. Wake up.


The tight grip the ego has on us is what is going to lead to our downfall. If we cannot move beyond it, we will deliver our own extinction. Fact. There is no denying that the human race and our planet is in a time of crisis. Go ahead and bury your head in the sand if you like, but the reality is not going away. We are destroying our own habitat, the one we need for our very survival. We have broken systems that we pretend are healthy, which are killing our people and environment. This is the truth. And you biting your lip does nothing to change this fact. 


Opening your mouth and saying what you really think, might however.


All those fears? They are illusions. Merely thoughts that come and go, which we can choose to believe or not. It’s up to us.


Sitting gazing at our navels whilst Rome burns is not the answer. Speaking up and taking action for what you believe is right, is. 


Leadership is not easy. Whoever said it should be?


True leadership takes courage. It takes grit, determination and the desire for a better future. 


It takes standing up and saying what you think even if it’s in opposition to everyone in the room. 


It is questioning the narrative when 99.9999% of the population believes it.  
It means going against the grain, pissing people off, being judged, ridiculed and laughed at.


It’s being prepared to lose everything you have to stand up for what you truly believe in. 


Leadership is the path of the warrior – who is fighting for LIFE.


A better life for all. One where we can thrive and prosper in harmony. 


As you know, we are far from this place. The disparities across the globe are great, and the distribution of wealth is piled at the top. Our world is not a just place, and you biting your lip is not going to change that fact. 


Saying what you truly believe in however, might.


If you move your personal desires aside for a moment, what deeply matters to you? Pause for a moment and take a breath. If you were alone on a desert island what would you miss most? What is important to you? What fires you?


There is a desire within all of us for a happy healthy life. Where we live in harmony with others and there’s enough to go around. It’s mainly the media marketing machine that has us in the West believe otherwise. It’s all a facade. When you peel it back, every human seeks connection, love and security. 


Again the ego is scared of these things. They are risky because we’ve been led to believe that there’s not enough to go around. If we believe that thought then we hoard and stockpile, believing we must fight to survive. Let’s be clear – there is enough food to go around. There is enough money. However it’s not the amounts – it is the distribution that’s the problem. It’s all hoarded and stockpiled by the people at the top. The tech billionaires, secret societies, and high level elite that run the world. Don’t believe me? Take a look around. Where is the money flowing to? Straight to the top with a little bit of a trickle for the little man at the bottom, just enough to keep him working and in check – secure and unquestioning. Running along on the hamster wheel, just getting by and being thankful for the opportunity. 


If you thought slavery was abolished in the 1800’s think again. It just changed forms. Mortgages and fancy cars are the invisible shackles that keep the human race enslaved, and moreover, jubilantly happy about it! 


We do not live in a free society. Welcome to the Truman Show.


It takes immense courage to think and speak differently in a world which is enslaved to a narrative. 


Does that mean you shouldn’t do it? Hell no. 


It’s exactly why the world demands that you do it!


If we keep believing the same script, we will keep marching over the edge of the cliff to our ultimate death. One by one, following the person in front, our life force will be extinguished and it will be too late to do anything about it. Blindly following along, failing to question or think for yourself will have detrimental consequences for you and the rest of us. 


If someone is beginning to question, to raise their voice in opposition – I beg you to get curious and remain open. Contemplate:


Why does this person think that? What other meaning could it have? How might this apply to me?


Defensiveness is a protection mechanism of ego. It will shut down your capacity to objectively consider the world. 


Ignorance is bliss…until it isn’t.


We cannot go on pretending that things will go back to normal. It’s not happening. We are standing on the precipice of a new way of being, literally. It is a painful and necessary process in the evolution of humanity. You can either resist it or pick up tools and get involved as an active component. It’s your choice. 


Will you walk blindly over the cliff?


Or are you prepared to stand up, break ranks and lead in a different direction – even if you’re totally on your own?


That is leadership.


If you’ve read this far, that is what you’re here to do. 


Changing entire structures and cultures is no easy task. That’s why it’s going to take hundreds, thousands, millions, and billions of people to collectively turn the ship. One person at a time, right where they are now. Right where you are now. 


Perhaps the task feels overwhelming, but please rest assured there are many others who wish to right the ship and sail for better horizons. It’s simply a matter of finding them – and the easiest way to do that is stand up and share your truth. Stop biting your lip and saying what you really mean because that’s the only way they’ll be able to hear you and follow your lead. 


After all, you’re the leader you’ve been waiting for. 


The dust on your forehead is the crown you’ve been searching for your whole damn life.


Now straighten up, get on your soap box and speak as if millions of people all over the world are listening – because they are.


Remember,

Breathe the change you wish to see in the world.

READY TO TAKE OVER 2021?

EXPANSION – 8 Weeks – Align to the NEXT LEVEL YOU! 

For those who are ready for a life of true alignment and expansion beyond their wildest dreams!

I’m so excited to bring this brand new programme to you, combining all the top modalities and teachings I’ve experienced over the last 10 years. The ones that work and ACTUALLY help you make the changes you want in your life!

Are you ready to stop saying ‘one day I will’ and get on and actually press play and create the amazing version of YOU that you KNOW has always been inside? The YOU that is ready to come to the stage and give the performance of his or her life? The one waiting in the wings, wishing you (or rather your ego) would move aside so they could shine their light and do the work they are here to do in the world? The brilliant, dazzling version of you, that perhaps is a distant memory, the one you catch a glance of in the mirror out of the corner of your eye? The magical being that exists within you, but just can’t seem to find a way to the surface? The you that has always been here, waiting for the right time and place to come alive again, or even for the first time.

I see the you – the one inside. It’s time to bring that you OUT. I know it’s there because I was once you – scared of my own potential and power – worried about rocking the boat – fearful standing up for what I truly believe – and resistant to making the changes I needed to bring my incredible potential to life.

We all have it – this potential. Yet all too often it gets squashed along the way, as children we are told, don’t dream to big, be realistic, get a proper job etc etc. I bought into the story too. We all did. But I’m here to tell you it doesn’t have to be that way. There is a secret door within you which will take you to a totally different dimension – one where all of you gets to come out and play. Just like it should.

That door is your breath. It is the secret portal you’ve been looking for – hidden from plain sight – and yet it has always been at the edges of your awareness – calling you home.  Calling you to alignment. Calling you to greatness. Yet the outside world has been very loud for very long, so it’s near impossible to hear the whisper. But you just did. That’s why you’re here, and that’s why you’re reading this. Everything comes together in perfect timing. That’s the beauty of the breath – it knows perfect timing – and it knows you intimately – and it’s here to reveal it’s gifts to you. Are you ready to receive the keys to the kingdom and set yourself free?

Now is the time. This is the moment. There is no other. Your destiny awaits. Your life is calling you forward.

No, not the life you’ve lived up until now – the small, contracted and ‘hide my light under a bushel’ type. You can forget all of that. It was just the warm up baby! The life that’s calling is the one you know you should be living. The one that feels so effortless and aligned that you can’t quite believe it’s yours – that you ACTUALLY get to live it! A life that feels in flow, purposeful and expansive. Imagine that all of the beliefs about who you ‘should’ be and what life ‘should’ be like just disintegrated in a second and the whole of infinity opened up before your very eyes. You see and truly understand that anything is possible, and that you actually get to create what you want and to live life fully switched ON! Full power! The realisation that you are the master of your destiny, and that your stories are just that, stories, that can be released and new BETTER ones created in their wake. Just imagine being in this place – where anything is possible.

Take a breath.
Again.
Here. It’s right here. Right now.
Everything is possible.
…………
Yes, let me repeat.
EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE.

Don’t believe me? Look around. How did this all happen? Is there someone, somewhere doing what you want to do? 100% yes. Is there this internet thingy that can connect you with someone on the other side of the world for a dinner date? Yep. Are there a million needs that require a solution?

You bet. It’s just a belief away. Everything is possible.

In this space there is life – expansion – freedom and unlimited potential. When did you forget to dream? It’s a slow creep, but it gets to most people in the end. The very good news is that there’s a way to change the game and turn your life completely around.

I say this because it’s true, as this has been my life path. A few years ago I left my highly
successful corporate career to seek meaning and purpose. I had no clue where to start, but I knew I needed to tear everything down and completely start over from scratch. I quit my high flying career and moved to Brazil. No plans, no nothing. Free falling into the unknown.

During those years it became evident how deeply conditioned my psyche had become to what the world deems is ‘acceptable’ or successful or ‘meaningful’. The more I dug in, the clearer It became that I was living someone else’s life, based on societal measures of success. Climb the ladder, get the accolades, earn the money etc. These were all well and good, I am grateful for the rich experience I had on this part of my journey. However there was still a sense of emptiness which I felt that could not be satisfied, no matter how many fancy dinners or exotic holidays I took.

The problem was – my soul was hungry. It was hungry for meaning. And everything around me felt so meaningless. Trivial. Trite even. It just felt so dull and boring, like this wasn’t meant to be how I lived my life. Surely there was more?!

I jumped off the metaphorical cliff six years ago, and lo and behold I was caught. It’s been a wildly fulfilling journey ever since. One which I would give my life over again for. Because in that moment of blind faith and desperation, I found what I can only describe as my true self. The self that had been covered over by rubble, left for dead and written out of the story. The one that was choking on the dust, making do with scraps and hoping there was light at the end of the tunnel (read 20 years of happy retirement after working myself / my soul to the bone). It wasn’t going to be my story as it turns out because my soul had other ideas. It had an escape plan!

The escape plan was canny! Make me so uncomfortable that I had to move! By any means
necessary. Squeeze me to the point of breaking. It was pretty intense. The good news again, is that it doesn’t need to be. Well, not if you take notice and listen to what I’m saying.

The soul whispers. It doesn’t shout.

If you’re not paying attention you’ll likely miss what it has to say. Let me tell you, that’s not a good idea. Because ultimately life wants us to evolve and grow – to expand. If you’re not playing along, you will be knocked for six and caught out when the lesson comes. And it will come. Perhaps you’re OK living an OK life. You’re getting by, having enough of most things. Having some free time, and plodding along. Nothing wrong with that!

But perhaps you’re not. If you’re reading this far, I suggest you might be sick and tired of the lack of meaning and purpose in your life.

Your soul is like a nagging child in the backseat of the car on a road trip, continually asking ‘are we nearly there’ as a reminder that you’re still not living life ON YOUR TERMS.  You may know what those terms are, you might not. That’s how deep the conditioning goes, you don’t often know what is your belief or someone else until you begin pulling at the threads of the complex knit of your identity. It’s a challenging place to be. Yet I can promise you that deep down you already have the answers, and the capacity to see the wood for the trees. It does however take a commitment to show up for the task. Nobody else can do it but you.

But guess what….The truth will set you free!

Living in alignment with your values, with your truth, WILL set you free.
This is the only way it can be, by design. Do you think God put humans on the earth to all live from the same playbook? Hell no! You’re as unique as a fingerprint! That’s why you’re amazing! That’s what makes you YOU!

I want to help you remember this, the unique blueprint you have inside. If I can do it, then so can you. But please, save yourself some time and effort. Use the tools and techniques that work and get results. Don’t go giving your power away to something outside of you. Again, you have the answers. Your breath remember? This is the key. This is the only authority you need.

This is your permission slip, in case you need it. Breathe the change – and you’ll see it reflected in the outside world. I promise you this. This is not a journey for the faint of heart, but if you’ve read this far then I know you have the strength of a lion and a heart of gold.

Now then….Are you ready to show the world what you’re really made of? It’s time for expansion!

Join me for this brand new 8 week intensive programme to radically transform your beliefs, activate your potential and expand your world! I’m so excited to bring these cutting edge tools together in one container, which will allow you to clear out the mental and emotional baggage holding you back and create an unshakeable structure to build your next level brilliant self.

What clients have to say:

The best place to start is the beginning of my spiral journey!

I can comfortably say now, that I wasn’t OK! I felt that I was OK and said that I was OK, but reality was, I was struggling!! In all aspects of life!


I started this process at the start of lockdown and with Philippa’s help we have worked our way through a lot of my emotions and fears in life. Some brought on by me but also a lot brought on by the lives we lead and the societies we live in, some of the deep embedded ones came from early child hood that I would never have associated that with.

The Spiral has helped me talk and understand about my fears and emotions, and how they hold us back in life and dictate the path we lead. 

I now feel free and relaxed in all different aspects of my life, giving me more freedom of choice in what I do.”

Craig – UK

If you’re wondering – What is The Spiral Journey?

The Spiral is a powerful process for clearing the emotional baggage and conditioning that stops us from expressing our true authentic selves. The process was founded by Dane Tomas in 2012, and came together after 12 years of experimentation with different maps and models. It combines elements and learnings from Spiral Dynamics, Kinesiology, the Chakra System and The Scale of Consciousness.

Emotional clearing is a tool for finding emotions that are stored in the body and releasing them, whereas The Spiral is a journey that utilises clearing to unlock the emotional blocks for each 7 levels of the chakra system. Once we do that, you are able to step into a whole new level of empowerment around each level. The Spiral functions as a ladder from low levels of consciousness and low vibrational energies to higher levels of consciousness and a higher vibration.

As you start to shed the baggage (that you may have held onto for years), you begin to move through the world in a lighter and easier way. Without your stories dictating what you can and cannot do, there is less resistance and self-sabotage. It becomes easier to live in the present moment, let go of the past, and step into your true authentic self.

You may have tried to create change in the past by changing your thinking (with coaching, affirmations, visualisations, etc) with little or no success. Unlike other processes that focus on removing blocks on a mental level, The Spiral goes into the body’s energy field and releases emotional blocks that are held in the body. As you free up your emotional body, you in turn free up your ability to start living the life you want.

The Spiral is for anyone who feels they have unconscious conditioning or baggage holding them back that they haven’t yet been able to get rid of. Whether struggling in life, or super successful, this work has helped people from all walks of life step into a more empowered and authentic version of themselves. Let go of the negative blueprints from your childhood and start consciously creating the life you want.

By journeying The Spiral you will….

  • Dramatically raise your sense of self worth, life purpose and direction.
  • Open your heart to deeper self love and greater intimacy with others as a result.
  • Step into the courage to fully express your creative and business dreams.
  • Thousands of people have gone through this work and reported life changing effects!

YOU SAY YOU WANT FREEDOM BUT YOUR ACTIONS TELL A DIFFERENT STORY

Freedom. We all say we want it. Days lazing on the beach, living a laptop lifestyle, having life on our terms. What ever it means for you. But do you really?

I’ve noticed this funny thing with humans (myself included) – we often say we want something and do the exact opposite. We say we want to get in shape, yet fail to do the workout. We would love to change careers, but we don’t expand our education or apply of the new job. We say we want love, but avoid facing the wounds and shadows that keep it at bay. Let’s be honest, we’re a strange bunch.

And so this is an invitation to stop and reflect – where are you saying you want something – but doing the opposite? Where are you sabotaging yourself?

What do you value?
Freedom for example – one of my highest values – comes with a cost. Total freedom = total responsibility. 100% responsibility for your life. Now we run scared. We are accustomed to learned helplessness. You only have to look at the current failed medical model to realise that. If we chose real freedom, and took the according self responsibility – the world would be a much better place.

With great power comes great responsibility. We have the power to change our lives in every moment. To make different decisions, change our habits, adapt our behaviours – to create the outcomes we desire.

Yet, if it was easy then everyone would be doing it. If you want freedom, you also have to choose responsibility. There is no compromise. It means growing up from this childish blame culture in which we fester. It is breaking our human family apart. It’s ruining our lives. It’s stealing our joy and connection. Freedom is a choice, one for the brave of heart. Start small and build up. Rome wasn’t built in a day, hence making a new habit or choice might not come easy at first. However with consistency you will steer your ship in the direction you want to sail.

What’s stopping you? 
Many of our self sabotaging patterns are running from our fear mind – attempting to keep us safe. We must take a step back and tune into the monkey mind that is directing our lives and identify the thoughts that don’t serve. Only then can we replace them with a different programme. Most of our habitual thoughts and behaviours come from beliefs that were installed long ago during our childhood. They got absorbed by osmosis in our family of origin and those who were a major influence in our lives. What that means is we are riddled with bad code, the stuff that sends our system haywire the moment we wish to do something that is different to the programme. We end up short circuiting and reverting back to the same old situation. It’s not your fault, but there is something you can do about it.

Moving forward into the life you want.
The Spiral is a process which clears out the old programming of your subconscious mind and provides the opportunity to reprogram your system – so that it is fully functional and serves you! When you clear your old emotional patterns through this process, working with 22 core emotions, your hardware gets upgraded automatically. You now have the freedom to create new programmes (thoughts, beliefs, behaviours) that actually serve you and take you in the direction you desire – whether that’s better relationships, business success, or overall satisfaction and fulfilment. By going though the Spiral you automatically raise your level of consciousness, moving beyond the small fear mind, and gain access to the bigger picture that is your life – one where you’re able to be objective and make decisions that are right for you, instead of being on autopilot from the dysfunctional programming you took on.

When we heal our emotional traumas and dramas we create space for something new. By letting go of the old, we gain freedom and autonomy. No longer running on autopilot, we are conscious of our decisions – we are steering the ship instead of being tossed around in a storm.
You have the tools available for change at your fingertips – the question is whether you’re going to use them.

Remember,

Breathe the change you wish to see in the world.

ADDICTED TO AUTOPILOT

What struck me this morning in my meditation practice is how easy it is to get stuck in a rut. To roll out of bed, uploading the same programmes of our identity as the day before. Eat, sleep, workout, have sex, watch Netflix, scroll on socials, whatever else it is that you do on the daily, and repeat. Day in day out. Without stopping to question it for a moment.

Well, I guess that’s the point of meditation.

To question.

To stop your actions mid process and reflect, and see – hey wait a minute, why am I doing this or that? Does it really serve me? Does it make me happy? Am I even consciously aware of the fact that I’m doing it? Where is this actually taking me? Am I present to what is happening here?

And if I’m honest when I step back and reflect, I’m not. Not always present, more in my head, thinking about something from the past or mentally checking what’s in my agenda for the rest of the day. It takes dedication and commitment to bring your attention back to the moment, and be fully living your life in the here and now. No easy task!

Where your energy flows…
I believe the vast majority of us are living in this state, and it’s no surprise when we are societally conditioned to stay asleep. There is so much data coming at us on any given day, our systems are totally overwhelmed. Rather than malfunction, it’s much easier to zone out and carry on with our autopilot. After all some of those functions serve us really well, like being able to drive a car without thinking about it, or walking down the street to the supermarket. If we had to consciously compute those processes each time, there wouldn’t be much bandwidth left for anything else.

However, this canny ability of our subconscious mind and physical body to automatically carry out many functions on our behalf has serious drawbacks. If we are not paying attention, it will literally be hijacked by someone or something else that is skilful at capturing it.

Where your attention goes, your energy flows.

Which direction are you pointing yours in?

Are you consciously deciding where you spend your time, energy and attention? Or are you on autopilot, and unconsciously stuck in a rut which is draining your very life force away?

Where is your focus?
Let me be honest, staying present and focussed in the here and now is a heroic task. One that I believe we can all benefit immensely from. However, in order to do so we must break our addiction to zoning out and running on autopilot. This will not get us where we want to go. Particularly as most of our actions (estimated 90%) are driven by our subconscious mind, which is build almost exclusively from the material and experiences we ingested before the age of seven. Essentially our subconscious, which is running our day to day lives, is like a small child that’s high on candy. Always flitting between a million things, bouncing off the walls and going around in circles. Our programming is running our lives and we are seldom aware of it.

Furthermore the modern landscape of media bombardment takes advantage of our perpetual state of busyness and overwhelm and sneaks in all kinds of subliminal messaging whilst we’re not paying attention.

Case in point – the Hands. Face. Space. latest mantra of the UK government in the handling of the current crisis. You’ve heard it enough times. You know exactly what it means. That’s precisely how brainwashing works. When you repeat something over and over, it sinks into your subconscious and becomes part of the programme. This is precisely why I avoid absorbing media, you simply don’t know where it’s been 😉

Our subconscious mind provides a fertile soil for thoughts and ideas to grow. However when it is continually polluted with untruths, or old, negative and outdated beliefs, it can turn into an overgrown dangerous jungle which houses critters at every turn.

Instead of cultivating sunflowers, poppies and wild meadows that would make the birds and bees sing, all of a sudden you have the Venus fly trap from the movie Little Shop of Horrors on your hands. Feed me, feed me NOW! As I’ve said before, the minds is a wonderful servant, but a terrible master.


Become the master of your mind
I know it may seem out of reach, but I’m here to remind you that your mind really is within your control. It does however take practice and discipline. You must determine which seeds you wish to plant and nurture. I’d suggest going with those that uplift and nourish you, and not the thoughts that bring you down and cause you to shrink.

The subconscious is also a repository for everyone else thoughts and opinions that you valued at some point in time. Mostly from our parents, but also relatives, school teachers, the mean girl at school etc. All of the thoughts and ideas that you have about yourself reside there too. It’s quite a mishmash of stuff, which is why it’s important to do some garden maintenance and begin pulling some of the weeds up at the roots.
By sitting with your thoughts, whether in meditation, breathwork or journaling for example – you can start to see what is deeper beneath the surface. You’ll begin to notice when you’re speaking to yourself in a negative way, or perhaps some habits that you’re continuing with that don’t actually support your growth.

We have become addicted to autopilot in a world which values convenience over integrity. It’s time to wake up and take the action and decisions that support a sustainable and loving future, as individuals and as a collective.

Remember,

Breathe the change you wish to see in the world.

WHY WE’RE DOING BUSINESS BACKWARDS

Rather than working for a business,  business must instead work for us.

Somewhere in our culture we installed the belief that we’re put here on the earth to ‘do’ things, to produce output, to make stuff and to work ourselves to death in the process. What kind of slavery have we created for ourselves? Can you see the madness of it all?

I expect the industrial revolution had something to do with it, once a standardised education system was introduced – one that was designed to produce factory workers. People that could follow the rules and do what they’re told. On one hand creating a reasonable standard of education,  on the other brainwashing entire populations not to think for themselves. And hence we find ourselves in 2020 – flummoxed by the global pandemic situation and not knowing what to think or where to turn.
We have been led astray, to sustain a system which is morally and energetically corrupt.  It is literally draining the life force from billions of people all over the planet – and for what? Progress?

If a corrupt media, habitat destruction, manipulation, and a complete inequality in the financial system is hailed as progress I have significant concerns for the survival of our species. And truth be told, I do have considerable concerns about the survival of our species. Humans seem to be the apex predator that is hell bent on destroying it’s own environment- the one necessary for our very existence.

Take away people and nature and what’s left? Do you think you can eat dollar bills, inhale polluted air and live long and prosper?  What planet are you living on? Newsflash: There is no plan-et B.  We are in a state of emergency and it’s got nothing to do with a microscopic v*rus. It’s time to wake up from the collective amnesia we unconsciously choose. Why are we continuing to hold onto our comfort blanket and pretend everything is ok????

Because to face it would mean finally coming to terms with the lie that’s been perpetuated, and the realisation that you’ve been enslaved all along. Not to mention the feelings of fear and overwhelm that you, as an individual, can do very little in the grand scheme of things.

Now’s the time for us all to wake up
We are all in this mess together.  In fact our collective consciousness created this whole mess, whilst being simultaneously asleep at the wheel and subject to manipulation and control of an elite few in power. Wake up! The world needs you to come to your senses.

It doesn’t matter what’s been happening up until this point. Forgive yourself for the past, you didn’t know any better. You were born into this system of slavery and deception after all. It is however your duty and obligation to take responsibility for your patch of life now that you’ve come to your senses.
You might not feel you can have any impact. That nothing you can do will help.  It’s complete BS. Don’t fool yourself with the excuse that things are too far gone to change it. Everything is fluid. Life changes in a heartbeat. And if yours is still beating, then you have an opportunity to create ripples of change.

What’s driving you forward?
The world needs people who are passionate and driven by something greater than themselves.  Work out what that is for you. What lights your soul on fire? What gets you out of bed in the morning? What makes you cry tears of joy? What could you spend hours doing and the time would pass in the blink of an eye? What to you deeply value and care about?
Start there.

Essentially the planet needs more people to truly come alive. Co-creating from a place of connection and common purpose.  Often we find fulfilment in the things that create community, are inspiring and bring positive change. You can do your part any way you like – begin making those ripples of positive change.

It doesn’t start with someone else, it starts with you and it starts today. We might not get to see tomorrow,  so it’s time to bring your A game and dream a new 20:20 vision.

Remember,
Breathe the change you wish to see in the world.

WILL THE REVOLUTIONARY LEADERS PLEASE STAND UP?

The time is over for hiding. Now is the kairos. The perfect moment to stand up and show the world who you really are.

No, not the small, fake, timid shadow of yourself that hides behind a mask. The real, true, revolutionary human that you are.

You know that the final chapter has come to an end, and the moment has arrived to close the book of your old life and become who you REALLY know yourself to be at the core.

It’s time to reveal your soul to the world in all its infinite glory.

It’s time to fully show up, firstly for yourself, and secondly for what’s true and just.

You’ve known things weren’t quite right for a long time, both in the world and within yourself.
No matter what kind of outer success you’ve achieved (and you’ve had plenty of it), you never reached the place you thought you would. Something was missing and no matter how hard you tried, you just couldn’t put your finger on it.

I’m here to point out the obvious. The thing that’s been missing all this time is YOU. Being fully ALL of you. Some time ago in the dim and distant past, you squashed yourself to fit in, keep the peace, and to make everyone else happy. As you diligently followed the rules of your family, work and society, you slowly but surely started to shrink and disappear.

YOU KILLED OFF YOUR SOUL.  Yes you did, you know it’s true.

You unwittingly sold your soul to the devil because that’s what everybody else did too.
And now as you read this you’re finally ready to admit what you did. You put yourself in a box, before the world did it for you, and you built your own prison.

You might be wondering how I know this…

Because I did it too – for YEARS. I played the game and did what I was told. I followed the track for success and boy oh boy did I ‘make it’. Yes indeed. I had the high profile job with the kudos and financial rewards to boot.

I spent years climbing the ladder, to eventually realise it was against the wrong wall.
It was killing my soul.

Then my world fell apart in one fell swoop. After years of being numbed out on the conveyor belt called life, I cracked open. IT WAS PAINFUL. The world came rushing in and overwhelmed me.

And in that moment I WOKE UP.
I woke up to the lie I’d been living.
I woke up to my pain and trauma.
I woke up to the realisation I was living someone else life.
I woke up to my self loathing and insecurities.
I woke up to how guarded my heart was.
I woke up to the illusion of ALL OF IT.

I’d been sleepwalking on autopilot through someone else’s expectations of what my life should look like. I’d measured my success by somebody else’s ruler.

I felt fake, phoney and out of control and in that moment I knew that a part of me was dying. The grief and devastation were intolerable. I cried and cried for months. It was intensely painful and lasted for what felt like an eternity. And yet…

I can tell you this.

IT WAS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL THING THAT HAS EVER HAPPENED TO ME.
Because it woke me up to what I’d done. The whole experience helped me understand what was missing all along.

ME.

I was M.I.A. in my own life. Auto-pilot has a way of doing that. When you’re so immersed in the cut and thrust of everyday living, you just can’t see it. Often it takes a massive shock to break the shackles of a conditioned mind to start to comprehend something new or different.

I’d known for years that my true work lay in the healing and transformation space. I just didn’t have the balls or the clarity to make the leap, until life pushed me out of the plane with no parachute. I had to figure it out for myself on the way down.

Was it challenging? Hell yes.
Did I face massive resistance? Of course.
Did I cry, scream and punch the air at the unfairness of it all? You betcha.
Did I question and doubt myself and the process? Umm… what do you think?!

But guess what….

I didn’t smash into the ground at 150 mph. I WAS CAUGHT BY GRACE. Rescued by a force greater than myself.

I WAS SAVED BY MY OWN SOUL.

Because it was there all along but had been squished and stuffed in a cupboard for as long as I could remember. When it saw that chink of light it made a sprint for the door and escaped. It reached the sunlight and took its first breath.

After a long imprisonment, IT CAME BACK TO LIFE.

And bit by bit so did I.

That was ten years ago and I haven’t looked back since. It’s been a long road with many twists, turns and dead ends. Yet I wouldn’t change any part of it for ANYTHING. It has cost me YEARS OF MY LIFE and HUNDREDS OF THOUSAND OF POUNDS to get my soul back and let me tell you it’s the best investment I EVER made.

I’d do it all over again in a heartbeat because my hard-won freedom is PRICELESS. Honestly – what’s the point of living if you don’t feel free?

After walking this path for years it has become what I live and breathe. My life has unexpectedly become my purpose and that makes my soul very happy indeed. This wild crazy journey led me home to myself and to find my place in the world.

I’m now blessed to share these gifts with others so they can find their FREEDOM, come home to themselves and become what they already KNOW is inside of them.

To reclaim their power and step into sovereignty.
To think and feel for themselves, beyond the conditioning and trauma of the past.
To stand up and shine their light in a world of darkness.
To step out of the shadows and become the revolutionary human, leader, healer, and inspiration they have always known themselves to be.
To be an example of what is possible for humanity.

TO BE THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE IN THE WORLD. Yes, YOU.

I know it’s scary. Perhaps you don’t feel ready. You want to run and hide and maybe you will.
Scarier still is the thought of reliving the same day over and over again for 60+ years and calling it a life.
You know what? Your soul wants to come out of the box, and until it does, there will always be the unrelenting discomfort that a part of you is missing. It’s only a matter of time before something gives. Your life and your people are waiting.

The question is: Are you going to take the leap yourself or wait to be pushed?

Because at the end of the day it’s your choice.
Nobody else is coming to the rescue.
You’ve got to save yourself.

You know it’s time to become the revolutionary human that you are.  And frankly… if not now, then when?

Remember –

Breathe the change you wish to see in the world.

DROP BREATHS NOT BOMBS

Have you noticed how traumatised we all are? Look around. Fear. Masks. Judgement. Hysteria. If this isn’t a highly traumatised society I don’t know what is.

Let’s get real for a minute. We are at the beginnings of a deep and painful healing process. Your world. Your society. Your family.

YOU.
ME.
EVERYONE.

It’s a healing process we don’t even know we need because we’ve been programmed so deeply to believe that everything is functional just the way it is.

NOPE.

Human trafficking. Racism. Poisoned food. Profit above everything. Does anything about that sound healthy to you?

Disconnection. Nihilism. Co-dependency. Tribalism. FEAR.

Not a cocktail I’d like to drink but it’s being pumped into your system 24/7 by the existing media paradigm and societal ‘normalities’. Far from normal. A long way off healthy.

So what’s the solution?

First, turn off the TV. Nothing coming through the traditional media channels is going to make you feel any better or assure you. Consuming it will just lead you to a black hole of despair and contraction. The exact opposite of what makes your immune system healthy and strong. Be highly aware of what you are consuming on social media or from anyone in your circle. Nobody has all the ‘facts’ (if such a thing exists) and the only way you are going to know what is right for you – is by connecting to YOU. That’s not possible if there’s continual interference. Right now you might not feel like meditating or going to the gym but I can hands-down guarantee you’ll feel a million times better for it.

Whilst you’re being mindful of what you consume, be mindful of what you put out. Nasty media posts, criticism and judgement of others isn’t going to solve this situation, only make it worse by feeding the feelings of separation, tribalism and isolation.

This is the biggest part – if you feel emotionally triggered, either by the shituation* you are in personally, or by someone else’s words, actions or the audacity to breathe without a mask covering their face – STOP. Don’t move. Don’t react. Get still.

Be guided by how you feel

This is what everyone needs to learn. Your emotions are just telling you stuff. It’s not about the other person. It’s about how you feel inside and how you interpret those feelings. The beauty of this is that you also have the tool to resolve your emotional activation – but most people don’t realise it – because it’s not taught in schools – and it’s even poo-pooed as being some woo woo stuff. Well, how about this.

Lets start with a breath

Instead of dropping bombs on each other, blowing stuff out of proportion and making our nervous systems go haywire – we drop BREATHS. Lot’s of them. DEEP BELLY BREATHS. Into the core of your being.

You want to resolve that emotional wound?  Breathe.
​Change how you feel inside?  Breathe.
Create more abundance in your life?  Breathe.
Love yourself more?  Breathe.

Basically, you get the picture. It comes back to the simple thing every time. Your breath is your superpower, should you choose to engage with it. In a couple of minutes, you can take yourself from suped-up nervous Nina to chilled out Cathy – if you weren’t so fixated on someones outrageous internet opinion. Stick to your own lane, use your own breath.

Here’s how:

  • Find a comfortable position
  • Close your eyes
  • Breathe in through your nose for a count of 4
  • Hold your breath for a count of 7
  • Breathe out through your mouth for a count of 8
  • Repeat 4 times

If you don’t feel 100000% times better, then I’ll eat my hat. That’s how easy it can be if you take a moment to think for yourself. You’re in control of your mind and body, now it’s time you acted like it.

If you know you’ve got more emotional gunk in your system to deal with – then I’m your woman.

Tried everything? Good. You probably haven’t tried this.

You probably won’t. But if you do? It will change your life, and you’ll be free once and for all.

Remember,
Breathe the change you wish to see in the world.

100K MONTHS, A FAKE PENIS AND A CALL WITH THE WIZARD IN MY POCKET

Let’s just say there’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes in my life that I don’t often share. I feel like that goes for the rest of the population – we’re so busy saving face and attempting to look all pretty and perfect on the outside that we fail to recognise were dying on the inside. A slow and painful death that is the result of not unleashing what we are truly here to do, and who we are really here to be.

Anyway I digress – so back to the headline. I expect you’re literally dying to know what all this is about!

Well these are on my to-do list this week. My personal development journey never stops, I just don’t always publish what I get up to, and maybe you’ll find out if you’re a client of mine, or maybe you won’t. But today I wanted to share this as a recognition that the work takes work. One of my highest values is learning – and I’ll scrape together and integrate all kinds of weird and wonderful practices and insights for the constant improvement in my clients results.

Hence this week 100k months, a fake penis and a call with the wizard in my pocket. And that’s just for starters. Let’s go with the first one – and probably most contentious or triggering. We all have issues with money – and the majority of these stem from lack of self worth and societal conditioning about what money IS and what money MEANS. You know all those beliefs – like rich people are assholes – or that – money doesn’t grow on trees? Well they’re not actually true. Unless you believe them to be true.

So I’m stretching myself with one of my mentors – upgrading my own wealth hardware to bring more abundance in my life – so my clients get to do that too – and the best bit? It’s automatic and by osmosis.

You are the result of the five people you spend the most time with

So I’ll be filling my time and consciousness with the wisdom of someone who has made multiple millions online ONLY from soul and flow. If you want to upgrade your game I suggest you do something similar – whatever the goal – get into the circle or energy of someone who already has it.

Make your life easier, not harder.

Pain is guaranteed in life, suffering is optional. Be smart about where you spend your time and energy because ultimately this is an investment in yourself and you get what you pay for.

The next one – a fake penis. 

A little more left field and potentially more interesting. And for the perverts at the back, I know this is what attracted you to read thus far 😉 I’m currently journeying the archetype of the ‘dark masculine’ which when imbalanced is what typically represents the evil acts that exist in the world. Things such as rape, destruction, and violence are the product of deep pain, grief and sadness. It’s difficult to understand or see this on the surface, but when you look closer and journey deep within yourself, you will understand this is true.

I decided to dive into this exploration to cease externalising my projections onto the masculine (and/or men) so that I can become more whole within myself. In addition understanding men from a different perspective gives me more tools as a facilitator and mentor to journey the deepest places that require love and attention.

So that’s why I’ll be making a fake penis and probably wearing it around the house at some point, so that I have a more embodied awareness of this energy. (yes – it’s this weeks homework….) Now you might think I’m downright crazy, in which case you’d definitely be correct, however I live and breathe what I teach – and I’m prepared to do what others will not – to become more human and understanding of the opposite sex. So that we can create more love and harmony on this planet, instead of separation and destruction.

Perhaps wearing a banana down your pants seems really weird, but I’m in for a penny, in for a pound. Plus – extra fruit for your morning smoothie 😉

Last but not least…the wizard in my pocket. 

Coming back to the first point – be in the energy of the people who are doing/have what you want. I want more money and magic which is what Dane Tomas has. So I decided to join his most recent (not so secret) society to get an upgrade in my consciousness, ability to create my reality and hone my emotional clearing tools. Oh and work on purchasing a house/land outright next year. No pressure then. So I’m looking forward to having this wizard on speed dial.

When the house comes good, I’ll invite you round for some kind of weird shamanic initiation ritual – or maybe just some cheese and wine.

So that’s just the start of my week – not to mention the NLP course I’m studying, the ayurvedic detox I’m starting or the million and one other things going on. Nothing to see here!

What are you doing this week?

I’d love to know!

Remember,
Breathe the change you wish to see in the world.

DO YOU TRUST YOURSELF?

Here’s what I recognise – the overwhelming majority of people don’t. They’re always second-guessing their decisions and there’s an underlying feeling of anxiety that pervades their life…. Just waiting for the other shoe to drop….

I know because that was me.

Internal guidance

For years I double-checked and took on board other peoples opinions. And guess what…..When you do that over and over (as our systems of learning/society/authority teach us to do) then you end up with a deep mistrusts in your internal guidance system. It’s like driving a car with a blindfold on – getting fed directions by somebody else….. Essentially you’re there, primed, waiting for the car to eventually crash. I think you’ll agree it’s not a good place to be.

Recently I’ve been working with one of my mentors on TRUST. It’s a big thing. I’ve also been on a deep dive with the kinesiology emotional clearing tools I’m trained in. What dawned on me a few days ago during one of her sermons was that trust is a DECISION. It’s an internal belief system. You might be thinking …. NO Philippa…. I need to trust BEFORE I can actually trust. Well good luck with that, because it’s NOT going to happen.

You either trust and believe in yourself or you don’t. It might sound simple but it’s true. It might be confronting, and if so, then it’s time to shift your paradigm for the better. My mentor has made $15m online from a soul-aligned business. It’s fair to say she knows what she’s talking about.

Belief system

So it got me thinking – how is it possible to flick the switch on trusting yourself?

To feel –
CERTAIN
CONFIDENT
EMPOWERED
& DEEP TRUST IN YOURSELF?

Then for the AHA moment… by using my kinesiology clearing tools to directly install new beliefs!

Go in and hack the system (because that’s essentially what these tools do) with a new belief system. It’s like hitting reboot on your computer after loading new software. Load new beliefs and new experiences await.

Like trusting yourself!

I’ve been experimenting on myself and it WORKS. I’m so excited to share this so I’ve designed a session specifically for you. We go in and rewrite the code. And then… miracles unfold.

Steps forward

If you’d love to overcome:
– procrastination
– second-guessing yourself
– anxiety
– worry worry worry
– the early and unnecessary onset of wrinkles

Then reach out to me and we can book you in a session.

Warning: This might just completely change your life for the better.

Remember,
Breathe the change you wish to see in the world.
