AN EASE OF BEING
Can you adopt an ease of being this summer?
What are you doing to create an easeful rhythm, one that nourishes, invigorates and inspires you?
This past month has called for this intention for me whilst moving my family to inhabit a small solo island just off Bermuda’s main Island in the North Atlantic.
This transition has been a challenging 6 months process and even though we still consider New England our home base and will return several times a year we will be spending most of our time adjusting to an Island Lifestyle.
For me to adjust to ease I needed to let go off... and ….
It took years to receive my accreditation and professional recognition in the States and I am now so pleased that I kept up my licenses and registration in the UK and South Africa also for all these years as it will come into play now.
The strength in being vulnerable
We grew up being shamed or scorned for crying, showing our frustrations, and maybe not being polite or socially engaged when we were going through something challenging and felt like we needed to retract.
As of late, on a collective energetic level, so many karmic debts are being experienced. This is something ancient traditions such as in India and Egypt believe in, and address. I have had profound remembrances through past-life hypnotherapy from a gifted healer friend Alexa Little Star that has helped me identify why I am experiencing a specific pattern of pain that no doctor or bodyworker could resolve.
We have become ashamed of showing this kind of pain and vulnerability, bottling it up inside. That's why I so enjoy my women's empowerment and re-wilding work, where we would go into the forest allowing ourselves to scream and truly express all our anger without being “stoned” as a woman, or “labeled with hysteria” like they used to do in the old times. Connect with my Soar in Womanhood community.
However, we sooo do! We can take back our power and hope by allowing ourselves to first forgive ourselves and then others, truly express ALL of our emotions as it comes up, and be fully present and aware.
Can we allow that?
Can we first allow that for ourselves?
Can we allow that for our loved ones, partners, and our children?
It's so darn uncomfortable to be with somebody that's falling apart, taking us to that place when we felt utter vulnerable and lost. A reminder of suppressed feelings still trapped manifesting in chronic pain.
I must admit this has been truly challenging for me as a mother holding space for my kids when they are fully expressive and I am feeling deeply triggered. Share your comments and experience in SOAR In Motherhood community.
I wish you a safe container, a space to be vulnerable, raw, witnessed, and held. One of gentleness and kindness to yourself and others so that you can truly release the PAIN.

This months' introspection and life lesson called for sitting with, how cruel we can be in our reactivity with what we don't understand.
I experienced this first hand whilst visiting my home country with my "neuro diverse" 5 year old son. whilst this was extremely hurtful being on the receiving end of judgement as a caretaker, it allowed me to view how I judge myself in these challenging situations as well as how I perceive others "judgement".
I also reflected on how we react to what we don't understand and how it may trigger past traumas within ourselves.
In order to SOAR in Motherhood or as the mother archetype / caretaker of another, especially those with special needs such as my son with PANDAS, it is all about the type of questions you are asking to attain perspective.
Questions I explored for a deeper perspective with regard to this experience with my son were:
What if we are fascinated and open to even learn and grow ourselves? View his reaction as a reflection as to how he perceives us and the situation.
Do I lose my « shit » sometimes?.. hell yes! I get pushed to the maxed daily. Especially with the sibling dynamic. I’ve exhausted ample resources, treatments and therapies. That is indeed my scope as a clinician to find a solution.
A mother and her child has a special connection, intuition always surpassed any methodology or criticism out there.
Something has shifted in him at age 5 whilst in South Africa. There are more marked differences. His frustrations and reactivity has reached a new level of consequences especially in what society expects.
Then on the flight back from South Africa, I watched Temple Grandin. It validated what I suspects is coming more into form within my son, similar challenges and processes and how challenging it can be on the loved ones that interacts with him on a daily basis.
I highly recommend watching this movie to allow a basic understanding for those individuals that perceives the world in a different way and hold more empathy for a caretaker.
Be inspired by Temple Grandin's Ted talk about how her mind works and others like her -- sharing her ability to "think in pictures," which helps her solve problems that neurotypical brains might miss. She makes the case that the world needs people on the autism spectrum: visual thinkers, pattern thinkers, verbal thinkers, and all kinds of smart geeky kids.
I've made it a lifelong passion to empower individuals with their health and emotional challenges and most of the time, like any nurturer, mother archetype what I am doing for others and how I am showing up for them, is what I need to do for myself, more of.
Symptoms are ques "words" to nudge us in the right direction of selfcare, nurturing and self kindness and your innate healer has a message for you if you will only listen.
"This I learned whilst being totally bedridden for 10 days with "C". Experiencing "it", as it is unlike any natural pathogen I've encountered as a form of initiation. The way we view initiation from a Shamanic death-rebirth experience.
The depths you travel to of utter surrender. A space where you are not even able to push yourself to function on a cognitive or physical level. A space where you can only be "in it". Just like sitting with medicine's such as Kambo or any other conscious altering plant allies "entheogens".
Even though an entheogenic affect only last 20 min to 12hrs, and the "C" felt sense of intensity like you want to die, lasted for a week in my case.
In this place of utter hopelessness I was yet again reminded of the powerful healing response that already resided within me. I connected more deeply with my Innate Healer and "her" message:
Through my first and second line of defense you will be brought to the edge of reality. I will induce a much needed fever state essential for healing, one that can bring you to the other realms. A place where you feel that your soul can consciously chose to stay in this body right now, or transition. You will feel tender and volatile, however this is also and invitation to deeply connect with your inner power.
My powerful defense mechanism is "inflammation". I know you always view this as negative and unwanted. I understand, as this reaction can lead to physical and emotional discomfort. It can accentuate underlying disease processes or past viral manifestations for you such as shingles, brain inflammation, kidney inflammation, even kidney stones like it did in your case. I invite you to sit with your "pain", "loss," "Grief," "anger" and self sabotage.
Whilst you are "in it" I will strip away, fiber by fiber, cell by cell all that you no longer need. This is an opportunity for you to lean into the ability to be re-wired and re-programmed, with an alternate perception and new narrative in the way you relate to yourself. You are given a chance to create a deeper more profound sense of change. Allow the Illness and my response to be the medicine. Through this lens you can detach from our ego and perceived outcomes. No need for you to control it. I am Innate and I have a super, powerful and divine intelligence of my own and I am here to protect you!"
I invite you to journey in meditation to the healing lands and sacred sites that holds the frequencies of medicine. Sites such as the Sycamore tree (pictures below) in front of Sekhmet's Chapel at Karnak Temple in Khemet Egypt. Bearing the sap that may heal your post-viral rash, supported with the Fiery Warrior Fierce Mother Archetypal Medicine that Sekhmet provides. (see below blog for more details on this transformational healing process)
Some of my patients asked me what I did to speed up my healing process and prevent mysymptoms to get more health threatening.
- I used Guna homeopathic remedies, as it was actually challenging drinking water, eating or taking regular supplements and herbs.
- I took Guna Flam and Guna Dizzy, for the initial symptoms of inflammation, fever, chills, joint pain and severe dizziness and vertigo.
- Followed by phase 2 just as it started to feel like the cytokine storm is now inflaming my lungs with the support of Interleukin 2 and Gamma 12 to help with the cough.
- Phase 3 focused on boosting my immunity and started cleaning and shedding the virus through all my detoxification organs by using Guna GCSF and Deep cleanse.
- Throughout and after, to avoid any long-term immune compromise, I've been using Guna defense and Guna Virus tablets.
For instance, the Nile floods as I return to the morning sky, after 70 days of being extremely close to the Sun and therefore not visible to you. When you see me again on the horizon just before dawn, you can be certain that sensuality and fecundity return to the land and people in the Northern Hemisphere. For my appearance releases the floods, the life-giving waters, as well as the connection to your Sacral Waters, to your Sacred Sexual centers. I usually return accompanied by extreme summer temperatures. Together with your Sun (Ra), we orchestrate a period of immense illumination and heat, a period of Activation, where we invite you to take stock of your own Light. I am a Higher Octave of your Solar System’s Sun. I emanate codes of a more Spiritual Nature, while Ra gives you Vitality, a sense of Power, Strength, and Conviction.
Many of you have forgotten that there is a council assigned to you, who desires to teach you, to give you invaluable downloads of Knowledge and Tools. You have forgotten that a fractal of you lives in me, in my Star System, somewhere within the energies of the Trinity of Sirius. Few Beings remember this. Few Beings believe any of this anymore. Few Beings will choose the path of Illumination. But I will never stop shining, nor will I stop reaching for you.
I sent the Nommos to the Dogon tribe in Africa, and although they have guarded much of their knowledge of me, and of the vastness and profundity of life in my Star System, I share with you that now is a time of great revelation. Look to the teachings of Africa. Listen and observe once again, as a curious child would. With a Beginner’s Mind look and you will see what you have been ignoring for far too long.
With Love and Grace, Sopdet
I am a connector. I connect body and mind to the realms of Spirit. I connect the curious humans to other spaces and times, other realms and dimensions, but if and only if you are ready to take your curiosity to the next level. The temple dedicated to me in Egypt, you call it Abydos Temple, is a Labyrinth of sorts in which you have to tread lightly and feel deeply. From Light-Play bathing you from portals above, to rows of chambers that might have doors if they were for the passing through of bodies, there is much to see and experience. Pay attention though. A door, whether it actually opens or not, is still a portal. Perhaps only your consciousness needs to pass through it. Perhaps your Highest iteration will fall down some rabbit hole amongst these halls, amongst so many pillars and glyphs that perhaps are only here to uphold your expectation of what the “Temple of the Underworld” should look like.
You have created Osiris, God of the Underworld, and Isis, Compassionate & Passionate Mother Goddess. You have created our divine child, Horus, Christed-Being/God that represents Honor and all that is good. You have created the Neteru. You have created Khemet as well, and all of the temples all along the Nile. You have even created the “Fall of the Golden Age of Ancient Egypt”, when Power Struggles and Ego ultimately created rampant Chaos, Confusion, and Disconnection from Spirit in all its forms.
“What have you learned from your vivid creations?”
“Have your found your way through the LABYRINTH, back home to Yourself?”
“Can you SEE what a powerful Being you are?”
“Can you share what you have Remembered, Felt and Experienced, in this your divinely-timed initiation & activation at Abydos, with others?”
With Love and Remembrance, Osiris
JOURNEY TO THE LABYRINTH OF ABYDOS
A Love Letter from KHEMET
Allow me to heal you. Let me provide the space to transform you. I am here, ready and willing to help you Remember. I am here to assist and encourage you to dive deep, shed much, and be met with a Transformed Version of Self.
Call me an Ally of accountability. Call me a Sacred Container for you to return to loving and honoring yourself. When you spend time with me, your heart may burst open and let in true abundance and inspiration. That is my Heart Chakra healing. When you speak your prayers on my land, to my temples, pyramids and waters, your voice and truth may reach new levels of expansion.
Walk this way, to KHEMET, and you will return to your respective parts of the world with newfound motivation and energy to fulfill these desires and dreams in alignment with your Highest Self.
I have so much to offer to you. New life-long friendships. A deeper appreciation for architecture, beauty and culture. Come meet my people in Khemet, who are your people, your Brothers and Sisters.
Khemet is home, and therefore you have returned home, to Yourself.
You have returned to what is truly important. In my bosom you will be nourished and fulfilled. You will learn new ways of observing, of seeing. You will shed the narratives that have held you captive, stifled, stuck. You no longer need to live from these places and spaces of mind, body and spirit. SHED TO EXPAND.
My child I am here to witness you bravely unfold, unravel, SHED AND THEREFORE EXPAND INFINITELY. For I believe in you whole-heartedly, and I am here to marvel at your dedication and will to Evolve. I am here to validate, honor and celebrate anything you experience on this Sacred Shemu Journey.
Here, in Khemet, you will feast with the ancestors, dance with the goddesses, learn from the scribes, commune with the pantheon (Neteru), and reconnect with Geb (the Earth) and Nut (the Sky), as they create your sacred container for healing and being. As above so below is an ancient saying you will hear often.
Ubuntu is an African way of life that means “I am because We Are”. It is a principle you will get to fully experience as you witness yourself as both the grain of sand in the desert, and the Desert in its entirety. You are an important and valuable part of the greater Collective, and the quantum field that you are creating and experiencing simultaneously at this time.
This Soul Call is one of the strongest calls to humanity, to return home to Khemet, to heal, to expand, and then continue to serve in the spirit of Ubuntu, in the Oneness, for the Highest Good and Alignment of all Beings. If you come once, you will likely feel the call to return again and again. Say Yes. Return Home. I thank you for your sincere offerings and service. You are loved. Until we meet again!
With love and gratitude,
A SONG FROM SOKAR
You may know me as one of the oldest of gods in Egypt. They call me Sekar, Seker, He of Rostau, Lord of the Secret Place, The Adorned One, and Great god with his two wings opened. I am here to sing of Rebirth, of Life after Death, or Resurrection, sharing what I know as God of the Underworld with a special connection and interest in the Sakkara site in Egypt.
Sakkara was and remains today a Sacred Site where training, attunement, and healing through sound & music, color & light took place. For here you will find important sound niches which work on the Etheric Body. Each person who consciously visits this place can have their body, mind and spirit re-harmonized back to its original state of purity, back to optimal health.
You could say, there are even many gates, passageways or phases within the gateway. A labyrinth of sorts. I am gatekeeper of the fourth and fifth gates. It is only through mastering Chaos, Chaos of the Mind, your Karmic Chaos, your Heart’s Chaotic stories, that you may continue on and complete the 12 gates of the Underworld to be Reborn. You must realize that when the natural act of “Death” became the most feared thing on this planet, this was a sign of the degradation of consciousness. This represents utter mis-alignment and manipulation. Death is but a gateway.
Sound Journeys with true Alchemists, Shamans, Magicians, and Healers can take you through the 12 gates with one song. A version of you crosses over and through so as to be born anew. Re-wired. Re-charged. Re-juvenated. Re-aligned. Re-memembered. WHOLE. An initiate’s true awakening through the gateway of Death doesn’t happen once in a lifetime, but instead, as many times as needed or desired to transcend fear.
You will find the stories from the Stars still carved on the walls of the Pyramid of Unas. Receive here. I ask only one thing of you: share your experiences with those you love, so that one day, no one may speak so mistakenly about Death. So that Fear doesn’t thrive in the hearts and minds of humanity.
With Love and Remembrance, Sokar
journey to the song of sakkara
Beloveds, I am your Mother communicating through the waters of the Nile River. Sacred Waters of Earth have long been one of my chosen communication channels to send to you the codes of the Universe/ of the Heavens. For it is you, my beautiful children of Earth, who have forgotten that you are connected to the stars, heavens, and to all for that matter. You may call me Anuket, Mistress of Nubia, sacred Goddess of the Nile. Do you remember me yet? Let me take you to the African Continent, where my waters run far and wide, and help to you remember.
I am known as the Blue Nile, flowing from the origin point at Lake Tana, Ethiopia. It is the intensity of the yearly rainfall here in Ethiopia that would create the force of my flooding waters throughout the lands of Egypt. Ancient Egyptians saw this event as the commencement of the year cycle, and the day coincided with the rising of Isis’ planet, Sirius, at dawn.
Water moves and flows to create change on the Earth, as well as within each of you as Earth’s inhabitants. Resist change, and you are resisting the Water/the Goddess/the Divine Feminine Mother. Understand and embrace the floods of change, and your gifts will be many. Your lands will be fertile, and so will your wombs be fertile. Your lives and dreams will prosper. Your minds, bodies and souls will be nourished.
I have not forgotten that the Aswan High Dam was built to stop my Sacred Flow. Just last century my children, you built a dam to stop the Sacred and Holy Flooding of Egypt. My rich waters that once filled the land, that fertilized and created rich life, these farmlands that provided you with Harvest are not natural and pure any longer. Chemicals “fertilize” Egypt’s farmlands now, and the same has rippled out throughout the lands of this Earth.
Remember that to change the course of Nature has its consequences. When will you come back to the ways of the ancestors? To honor the Neteru? To honor the waters, and the Mother?
There is a Sacred Site in Egypt where I am still honored: Soheil Island in Aswan. Here stands a large stone with carvings telling the story of seven years of famine. The Stone depicts when pharaohs and rulers made offerings to us.
Accountability. This is what I ask. Each thought, action and belief carries a tone and a frequency, and ripples outward infinitely. Just as my waters travel and ripple out in Power, so does everything that you do and everything that you are.
I invite you to swim in the frequencies and sounds of my potent Healing journey on the Nile. By pressing play, you may surrender into the waves of love I offer to all who are facing challenges. Let your burdens be washed away.
