Do you long to experience life more from the level of your heart and soul…?

A short message channelled here in 2018, in the mountains between Italy and Switzerland.

Human beings naturally crave structure, security,
or a clear and straight path laid out before them.
Many search for a spiritual leader or community,
a daily routine, ‘an acceptable way’ to follow –
so life feels more safe, predictable and ‘known’…

But the heart yearns for the deeper springs of life
and the path of the soul
is uniquely your own.

It’s a pathway that you forge into the unknown
and only your heart can intuitively feel/know
what is right and true for you.

If you really choose this path,
with all your heart and being,
know that you will be challenged.

You will need courage and perseverance
to keep opening your heart
towards the unhealed shadow
– of which has been ‘hidden’ to you…

Experiences which may come to you
won’t always be easy, pleasant or beautiful…
It may sometimes feel as if you walk a lonely path
but you will always be much closer to us than you know…

Above all,…you will grow,…

There will be others…
Soul friends and spiritual companions to meet again,
Soul family to share laughter, tears,
wisdom and experiences along the way…

It will not matter,
if you only cross paths for a short moment
or never meet each other in the physical.
It’s the mutual exchange of heart energy,
which has the power to transform, heal,
inspire and illuminate lives.

Dear one,
to live your life from the level of the heart and soul
means to become conscious of your old wounds
and from these limiting beliefs and conditioning,
create new, loving and joyful possibilities…

It means to recognise the importance of your inner work
and honour yourself as a sacred conduit –
here to shine your inner light

& help raise the consciousness and heart energy
on beautiful Mother Earth…

It means wherever possible,
guided by your feelings and heart
– to transform darkness, hurt and fear
into light, love, forgiveness, beauty,
 gratitude and fulfillment.

This is the magic,
the spiritual alchemy,
the infinite possibility,
the authenticity, humility and freedom
of living – connected and true –
to your heart and soul.

Who were you, before you were told who you should be…?

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟?

“We all start out knowing magic.
We are born with whirlwinds, forest fires, and comets inside us.
We are born able to sing to birds and read the clouds
and see our destiny in grains of sand.
But then we get the magic educated right out of our souls.
We get it churched out, spanked out, washed out, and combed out.
We get put on the straight and narrow and told to be responsible.
Told to act our age.
Told to grow up, for God’s sake.
And you know why we were told that?
Because the people doing the telling
were afraid of our wildness and youth,
and because the magic we knew
made them ashamed and sad
of what they’d allowed to wither in themselves.”

– Robert R. McCammon

Who were you, before the world told you who you should be?…

It’s 📸 me, 9 years old: dressed as a “Gypsy-fortune-teller” for our school book character day,…My mum helped with the costume and the photo made the front page of our town newspaper! 😃🤭 On that day, to my surprise, many children qued up in a long line for their chrystal ball “future reading”…The curious effect of a gypsy costume, a childs imagination and my netball covered in aluminium tinfoil proved to be quite amazing 😂…

In my 20’s, I ran a small business as a children’s facepainter. This special time, meeting and creating with many children around New Zealand, showed me the power and beauty of the child’s imagination…

It also helped me to heal and reconnect with my own Inner Child who believes in magic, endlessly writes and illustrates stories and poetry, walks barefoot everywhere and has a special friendship with pollinators and insects… 😍🦋🐛🐝

What are some key moments in your childhood where through freedom to PLAY, IMAGINE OR CREATE, you seemed to intuitively know what made you happy and flowed naturally from your inner self?…

During my personal journey and in my work offering intuitive soul guidance, I learned how important a healthy relationship with our Inner Child can be…

When our child parts are feeling heard, safe, supported and loved, life feels more flowing and meaningful…

It’s important that we do not forget the special moments of our childhood…And we honour them by making time and space for our childhood innocence and dreams to continue in our adult life…💓

Who were you, before you were told who you should be…?

A short Lions Gate Message for 2022

Do not always look outside yourself for evidence the world is changing.
Instead, look deep within your own heart and life.
Today, on Lions Gate Portal, take a moment to reflect and celebrate
how far you have come on your journey…
And how much you have grown, to be who you are today.
Have patience with yourself and remember that YOU
are the most beautiful painting that is evolving….

A simple message from Hypericum, St John’s Wort 🌞 

Hypericum perforatum: flower essence of light-filled protection and connection with our inner sun…

When we are always fearful of not “doing it right” or being “good enough”, it’s difficult to find the courage to explore new avenues in life…or try out new, more authentic ways of showing up in the world…

The internal critic and perfectionist are masters in stifling our growth and telling us in a million different ways,…we are worthless and small…

It’s not possible to abolish these internal voices who give us pain and destroy our self-worth. However, every soul is free to choose a path of healing and growing towards love and conscious awareness…

In shining a beacon of light on the wounded parts of Self, their power and control can begin to dissipate…

While we may be aware of their chaotic, relentless presence in the background, they are no longer taking center-stage… 

Together, with the protective shield of Hypericum and our devotion to our inner work, we are growing more to a place of self-mastery and freedom,…a state of true being and profound witnessing…

Hypericum also supports us to remember the Spirit Beings of nature who take on many different and unique light forms…

These nature spirits of light and joy would like us to play, dance, create, be free and joyful,…Have fun and connect with them!… 🧚‍♀️ 

🌟 🌞🌟 🌞🌟 🌞🌟 🌞🌟 🌞🌟 🌞🌟 🌞

Since ancient times, Hypericum has been known as the herb of sunlight, embodying both its light and warming energies…During Antiquity, Greek and Romans used Hypericum for spiritual protection, but also to burn for purification of the home. Hypericum provided healing for wounds and bites, digestive disorders, and support for depression, despair and suicidal tendencies.

Hypericum works well for those who suffer from depression, anxiety and insomnia. But also those who are sensitive…A flower essence of Hypericum not only offers spiritual/psychic protection but supports us to anchor light into our body and soul and radiate this light and warmth from within our own true source.

🌟 🌞🌟 🌞🌟 🌞🌟 🌞🌟 🌞🌟 🌞🌟 🌞

Recently, I had a chance to make a flower essence of Hypericum perforatum (St John’s Wort)…

While I still consider myself to be a novice, the flower-essence process gives me a much greater opportunity to dive into the mystical realm of flower power and unravel the deeper, intuitive messages they wish to communicate…Making flower essences takes me into a very sacred, ceremonial space with nature and I really love it!…

Can you see the Marmot spirit in the photo of me making the Hypericum flower essence?…🤗

Over the past months, the Marmot has been making his presence known to me in unique ways. However, I’m taking the sign of him being present with me (in the photo with Hypericum), that he is now travelling beside me as my new animal spirit guide and teacher…🥰

I’m very happy about this, because, among the many character qualities and spiritual gifts the Marmot represents, it shows I am ready to embrace new avenues in my life.

Soul Timing…

🌟 Soul Timing 🌟

What is ‘Soul Timing’?…

I have learned,…’Soul Timing’ is the SLOW medicine of being and trusting in the perfection of all,…It’s knowing that everything in life arrives at the right time,…when it is ready…

It’s not about being so “driven” for “results” and acknowledgement coming from the outside…that we try to force and control everything with our mind (not listening and feeling from our heart)…

This time of chaos, change and much loss in the world is offering many people a chance to go ‘within’,…

…to review, re-evaluate and reflect on what is of true value, authenticity and nourishment in our lives…

Chaos, disharmony and loss can give us the opportunity to see that change is necessary…

Learn to become more at ease with your Inner Self,…Overtime,…you will realise…

…the peace, love and contentment you have been searching and longing for – through numerous ways on the ‘outside’ – can only be filled from within,…

…and your connection to the Great Spirit that moves through you and all of life…💓

“The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are.” – Carl Jung

“The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are.” – Carl Jung …. i.e not who we “think” we should be, who others would like us to be, or who we think we should have been more, in order to receive love, approval and acceptance…

For a long time, I have felt drawn to the energy and symbolism of the Lion. To me, the Lion represents the courage to be our authentic self, – to speak and act in harmony with our heart…even if it means, we stand alone in a crowd.

“Journey with my Lion – what it means to embody Lion energy” incorporates my artwork and writing to share some of my own vulnerabilities, strengths and awareness gained, through working closely (over a period of many months) with the energy and symbolism of the Lion and Lioness.

The Soul Purpose of our Journey…(reflection)

Life is a journey…are we making life choices, which support and nurture our inner-soul-growth?

…On reflection, I see that from the “outside” the choices I made and the path I/we forged and created may have appeared irrational, unconventional, obscure and unplanned to some people. However, as I began to view my life choices more from the “inside” and less how others and society perceived me, I came to realise that the most important was that I listened to my own intuition and followed my heart and soul. I now know that this way never demonstrates a carefully-calculated-straight-path because it is open to flow and spontaneously change as we grow to become more authentic and self-embodied…

Excerpt from: “The Soul Purpose of our Journey”
This post is about looking at life and our journey from the perspective of our soul, where I share much from my own personal life teachings, wisdom and journey…it was written in May 2018.

…Which life choices have you made lately, which may have appeared irrational, “unplanned”, or obscure to other people or society – but they felt TRUE to your heart and soul?…🌺

Bee Prayer – Spiritual Message of the Bee

I am often inspired by the humble, devoted, and divine role, which bees play in our world…

I have long believed that bees are doing so much more for the planet other than crop/food pollination, honey etc (although, of course all of this is majorly important for our survival and the beauty, health and sweetness of nature!)…

…It’s a bit like hearing the spring birds singing to the sun every morning and at dusk…even with out seeing them, you might hear their bird song and it encourages a lightness in your heart and your emotional, spiritual body. This gently reminds you, even if you have been feeling out-of-sync or anxious, you ARE woven intricately into the fabric of all life around you…

…You belong to this earth, you are needed, you are loved…

It has been said that for humans to dwell in the places where bees visit daily – it does wonders for the soul. As a an artist, writer, musician, dancer or poet, you might find that when you are near bees you can more easily access the right-brain, irrational, sensory, higher mind and receive inspirational ideas and creative visions more easily.

There are many unknown secrets about bees and I think this is why I have felt so drawn to them! 

Bees have mystical connections with the ether, the elemental “unseen” kingdoms that are very much a part of our world and have been honoured by more receptive and spiritually attuned cultures, since ancient times.

Just like in the bee hive, I feel that we each have an important, unique role to play. We will always be given a choice; for example,…Today: what kind of ripple effect or sound/energy wave am I co-creating with my words, feelings and actions? 🤔

Despite the challenges, may you keep finding the light and courage to walk your own Sacred Journey – knowing that Mother Nature always has your back. When you need a safe, loving place (hive☺) to fall back in too – it is quiet, reflective, “beeing” time spent in nature, which can soothe your soul and remind you who you truly are and why you came here for this time…

There were many women before me,…
connected to the ancient world of herbalism
and the sacred feminine…
What matters most to me,
is that I follow my intuitive guidance
and make time to listen for the gentle wisdom
wanting to hold me in a nurturing, safe space –
so I may grow, bloom, share
and be all of who I came here to be.
– Jaymie Elder May, 2021

I hope you find/enjoy the bees where you are and that they have special messages and inspiration to share,…just for you.

Please let me know in the comments, if you also feel drawn to the spiritual symbolism of the bee, you have your own bees or you make extra sure they have a loving home in your garden!

If you like, you will find further reading in a post I created around 4 years ago in the Italian Alps during summer, about the alchemy of bees and how this relates to our own spiritual journey of soul growth, healing and evolution.

Local bees drinking at a village creek, last Spring in Italy.

Sadly, many of the local bees I photographed last year at this village creek, did not make it through the unusual cold months of March & April. But after the spring rain 🌧 I intend to visit again, and honour the brave, divine bees who made it through 🙏 🐝

Below, is a beautiful “Bee Prayer”; I found on the Animal Totem website. I hope you find it to be inspiring!

Bee Prayer:

Winged spirit of sweetness,
I call on you.
Teach me the ways of
Transformation and fertilisation,
The path from pollen to sweetness honey.
Teach me to taste the essence
Of each place I alight,
Carrying that essence with me
To continue creation’s cycle.
Teach me the ways of hope,
Reminding me that what seems impossible
May yet be achieved.
Flitting tears of the gods,
Draw me ever closer to the wisdom
Hidden within beauty.
Give me flight and sunlight,
Passion and productivity,
Cooperation with those around me
And sharpened strength to defend my home.
May I ever spiral out from my heart,
Searching for what I need,
And return there once again
To turn those lessons into nourishment.
Bee spirit, I call you.
