“A bad day for your ego, is a good day for your soul” ~ Amma

Hello 🙂

How are you?

I am well and noticing a flow of Grace into my life recently. Feeling blessed 🙂 I really enjoyed going to see Amma’s close devotee, Brahmachari Shubamrita, when he gave his talk ‘Finding Our True Home’ here in London on Sunday. It was wonderful to be with someone through whom I feel Amma moves so deeply, and to be with my community. It was fantastic that some of you could make it! I was delighted to see you there! Please email me with any further thoughts you have about your experiences at this beautiful event.

What I feel was really conveyed by Br. Shubamrita, is that there is no real home outside our True Self. That, in itself, is radical – if you really take a moment to absorb it. The Brahmachari (a type of monk who has taken vows) went on to tell us a little story about this. Back in the 80s, when the crowds around Amma were very very small, he asked her to come and visit him in his home. At first she seemed not to hear him, so he left it. Then, once he had another opportunity, he again invited Amma to his home. This time Amma laughed and said, “My son, I am always in your home, but you are never there. You are always wandering somewhere else.”

Shubamrita highlighted the crucial importance of regular spiritual practice (sadhana) in bringing us back into the Self, into the space of Silence inside, which is also the only place that true happiness is found. And another, perhaps even more important way of ‘staying at home’ he said, is to spend time with masters like Amma in person; in other words, to be with a being who is permanently rooted in the Self, until we ourselves can really say that we are. I agree that, without the direct physical presence of a Self-Realised Master, the likelihood of true abidance as the Self is vaguely possible, at best.

The highlight of the visit by Amma’s close devotee, from my perspective, was the music. Bhajan bliss 🙂 🙂 🙂 It has been said that music tries to express what language cannot. I think a bhajan – when sung by someone whose heart is truly with God – takes this statement to its ultimate conclusion. The only thing I can relate it to, if you have not experienced this particular thing, is making love. Are we not also trying in this, to express that for each other which language fails to? Furthermore, that is really what the Bhakti path (the path of devotion) is, in a far more profound sense. Perhaps along similar lines, it could be said that Bhakti actually succeeds in expressing what making love comes close to. There is this completion with Bhakti that is utterly total……like a circle being drawn, coming together again, with God as the artist.

Giving Sessions in London :-)

Hello 🙂

How are you?

I am well and feeling rejuvenated after my trip to see Amma in Canada. I have to say that this was one of the most incredible times I have ever had with Amma, or in my life – well, they always seem to go together 🙂 I feel so much Grace and fortune have come to me, and so blessed to have been part of what was going on there. I am now back giving sessions in London, so please do message or call me.

Before I went on my trip, a friend was telling me the way he thinks of Amma. He said, “To me, she is the Master of Being Human”. I love that!!! I have often said that it is Amma who has taught me the most over the years about how to be a better human being. But this expression from my friend says this and even more. I generally think of Amma as Divine (which is fair enough, because I perceive her as the exact embodiment of Divinity in human form, very rare) yet this description stunned me. It also contains the flavour of Amma’s own humility. Swami Dayamrita once captured a similar-ish kind of sentiment when he said in a documentary about his time with Amma, “I don’t care if she is God or she is Devil – she is my Mother.” He went on to say that the biggest miracle he has ever seen Amma perform is her Darshan. Day after day and hour after hour. He said that it isn’t even the great human feat of being able to do this that moves him most; it’s that she would want to do it.

I would like to pass on to you some of the teachings and expressions I gathered from my time at the Toronto program. Something Amma said which touched me very deeply was this: don’t ever hesitate to give love, because love is the only thing that you can always give. 🙂 🙂 🙂 – You know those times when you’re not sure..? When you feel like withholding love from someone..? And then there’s that moment when you go one way or the other..? That’s the space getting addressed here I feel. So beautiful… Amma also said that this human life is meant to be born in love, to be lived in love and to end in love.

I think my favourite thing of all that Amma said this time follows here. During the retreat, we were getting ready for the Q&A session, in which anyone can ask a public question to Amma. Amma announced that it was time, adding that 2 + 2 can never equal 5: the Truth has been given already, she said. So we can ask about our personal problems, what we see, what we hear, what we sense etc. She left it at that. There was still a Q&A session, but how transformed we all were in it!

During her Devi Bhava speech, Amma expressed that we should not allow praise to get to our heads or criticism to get to our hearts. She also reminded us that growing old is not the same as growing up: growing old happens without any effort and is the journey towards death, but growing up happens when we mature spiritually, and is the journey towards immortality. She pointed out that even the next breath is not in our hands. We need to recognise this truth, she said, and spend the time we have left in this life realising God within (which she defined as, that within us which cannot be changed). In connection to this, Amma has often said that far from being a luxury, God realisation is our birthright.

I hope you enjoyed these Amma inspirations 🙂 If you would like more, Br. Shubamrita is coming to London on Sunday to give a talk. I will be there. Here are the details (this talk is free):-

Where does happiness lie?

Hello 🙂

How are you?

It is possible to have been on a spiritual path or an awakening path for many years, yet still hold on to secret drives, particularly regarding happiness. Even though all of this can easily be spiritualised of course 😉 So, where does happiness really lie? I would love to receive your feelings and ideas about this, so please do write to me if you feel to.

I suppose the way this question got answered for me, wasn’t so much by asking the question and then analysing: it came in a different way. It was more a case of something which was there before, falling away – and noticing what was gone. One day, I went to Amma’s ashram in London to do seva. Before beginning the seva, there was a satsang (literally meaning, meeting in truth). I don’t know why on that day I had such a profound realisation, since I do many of those satsang practices every day, and have done for years. As I was chanting Archana (the 1000 Names of the Divine Mother), I was staring at Amma’s picture on the altar in front of us all. Suddenly something hit me like a flash : the source of happiness lies within me. It was quite a shock, and yet so evident and in a way, obvious, even though this whole thing was very subtle. Then a cascade of insights followed, such as the fact that happiness is never going to be found in a man, or in a partnership, in having a child, or in anything external. And also, I realised that the words ‘happiness is a choice’ (as Amma has said many times) are actually true. I realised that I am not “going to find it” in a relationship, I am not “going to find it” ‘one day’. Happiness is here, now! Happiness is already here, before I begin looking for it. On the level of thought, it was like, “Wow! Happiness is nowhere outside me.”

A reminder of timing and prices, as some people have not received these:-

All sessions are 1 & 1/4 hrs

In-person (in your home) = £100

Barbican venue (most Wednesdays) = £90

Distance healing (via WhatsApp, Skype etc.) = £75

I’d also like to inform you of some dates I will be away: I have very recently decided to visit Amma in Toronto, 12th – 22nd July. I will take that time off for sadhana (spiritual practices), self-care and seva (selfless service). Therefore please plan your sessions accordingly, and message me if you would like to book.

I hope this email finds you well and enjoying the warmth 🙂

Love,

Is it personal?

Hello 🙂

How are you?

I am well. I have recently been thinking and talking about the turn that happens during embodiment of awakening. I am talking about the turn from the personal to the impersonal. From taking everything personally (and therefore seriously) to a way of being that is totally impersonal, no matter what the circumstance is. It’s not a turn that is made, yet it is a turn which happens. A person in this no longer experiences themselves at the centre of their life and therefore, naturally, things are no longer taken personally. But even more than that, there is this movement into the impersonal, which seems to have endless depth, life, laughter and compassion. Life goes from ‘trying to get what the me wants (and thinking that that is very important)’ to a simple following through of the Truth and Love at the heart of the original awakening. But you can’t fake this! It can only happen of its own accord, like the way in which a flower opens. Then life lives through the humanness, so to speak, without any regard for whether that humanness likes what is coming through, or it doesn’t like it. After all, there is so much more at stake than that, because ultimately this entire ‘thing’ is kind-of like unstrategised service for the whole – for everything and everyone – yet not from anyone. Truly self-less service, which is nothing more than an outpouring of formless awakeness into forms. Far from being cold, this impersonal movement is full of Love and tenderness, without any special person it is directed to (or from, for that matter) and without any specific direction. What gets revealed is Uncaused Love, uncaused joy, uncaused everything…

Are any of you coming to see Adyashanti on the evening of the 16th August for his rare satsang in London…? Tickets may still be available through Alternatives. Even if they aren’t, if I were you I would turn up and try to get in. Adya is simply priceless….. Who else is there to see, really? – I often ask myself. In my opinion, no popular teacher is more embodied in their awakening and at the same time has the kind of bridging power he has. For example, in answering questions, he can bridge into the questioner in a way that creates real movement in terms of Truth. This ‘action’ requires Love, compassion, skill and training – but most of all, the ability to remain rooted in Truth in a very deep way indeed. Adya’s wife Mukti is giving a retreat (daylong) in London on the Sunday, and there are definitely still tickets available for that : www.adyashanti.org . I wasn’t taken with her work the first time I saw her, but a good friend recently changed my mind about her and I experienced a real turnaround (I ‘grocked’ her, as Adya would say :-), so I am booked onto that.

For those of you who know and love Amma (Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi), the new MA Centre UK (in Bromley) needs willing help from loving hands. If you love doing seva and would like to get involved – even casually, or as a one-off – please contact me or Vakees / Yamunah at vakeesyam@fastmail.fm. I will be there on Sunday.

It occurred to me on the bus last week, that if you remove the L from Loneliness you get Oneliness. That made me smile 🙂 It really is like this. Real life is like this, because Loneliness is the ultimate sensation of separation from your Divinity, and Oneliness is that Divinity.

I’ll leave you on that note for now. Wishing to see you soon 🙂

Love,

The Power of Practice

Hello 🙂

How are you?

I am well. I have recently been contemplating the power of regular rooted spiritual practice. I suppose for me I could say that this is the most important part of my day. That is kind-of a hard thing to say, because for me now the whole of life is equally important, in all its apparent parts. Nevertheless, there is something about getting up in the morning and doing an intentional practice that really moves me. What is your experience with this? I would love to hear your feelings and experiences.

In my experience so far, at all ‘stages’ along the awakening embodiment evolution daily sadhana (spiritual practice) is deeply important, precious and so delightful! I often want to sing about it after doing it! Luckily this is welcome in my household, since my housemates are on a level 🙂 What I feel about sadhana is that it has an immense multitude of simultaneous benefits. It both provides a structure for the day and frees one from all ‘imposed’ structures. It brings joy to the heart and radiates joy out to others. It ignites the innate (and often suppressed) longing for Divinity, whilst satisfying it at the same time. It transforms sexual energy. Most of all, sadhana is an expression of rootedness in Divinity (which is within every being). And it aligns one with the Divine, so to speak, in ever deeper and more mysterious ways.

The way I approach the question of which kind of practice to do, is simply to do what I am truly drawn to in a natural and organic way. I think this is important because, first of all, we tend to do what we love. Secondly, we are only likely to continue in the rigorous discipline of a daily sadhana if we actually feel inspired by that practice in the first place. I am not a fan of imposed spiritual practices, or of doing what others do and hoping for the best.

Perhaps it is more about the passion and the open willingness which we bring to the practice, rather than what the practice itself is (within reason). And then that passion and that willingness (which are really the fire of awakeness inside us) eventually lead us to the next appropriate practice for us, or even to no practice at all, or directly into the ocean of Divinity which has always been right on our own doorstep. I would really love to hear of what you do, if you are drawn to a regular sadhana of any kind.

Ultimately, every one of our lives (so-called ‘spiritual’ or otherwise) is shaped by the extent to which we are rooted in reality / love / spirit / truth / divinity / mystery. And that is not confined to anything, or to dependency upon anything. Even upon sadhana. I am simply intending, here, to share my passionate enthusiasm for sadhana, and to illuminate a valuable way of assisting the rootedness in Divinity, which can sometimes seem elusive in daily life.

See you soon,

Love and Peace,

Bank Holiday Goodies :-)

Hello 🙂

How are you?

I am well, and continuing to adore and enjoy my time in my new houseshare in this beautifully green area of London 🙂

I want to let you know that I will be offering sessions this Bank Holiday Monday the 27th May for only £50 (distance healing, 1 hour sessions). Please text, call or message if you would like this 🙂

I read these words from Amma, which a friend had posted on Facebook recently, and they really moved me.

“There are many masters around the world who have attained the ultimate state. If they could do it, you too should be able to do it. Why have doubts? Try. Doubting is learned; you have learned to doubt. You have never learned to believe, to have faith. Doubt is your number one enemy. Faith is your best friend. Have faith and put forth effort. You will see the outcome.” ~  ❤️  Amma (Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi)

We have the tendency to think that there are very few masters who have truly realised the Self, and to want to give up easily on this birthright and this path. But, as Amma points out, this is not true; just as it is not true that it is too difficult for us. I think that for women in particular this can be a deep issue, which obscures the inherent awakeness. I really like this quote because of how orienting and opening it is. Read in a certain way, it directs the intent and perhaps the ego itself, even, to the Source.

I hope you enjoyed it and that you enjoy your evening. Looking forward to seeing you soon. Much Love,

xDaisy

Divinity Intended

Hello 🙂

How are you? I am very well and settling into my new home in South East London. Yes, I have moved 🙂 I had no idea what a real home with the most appropriate energies around you could do for a person… It really is amazing how different I feel about everything and how much freer I feel on a human level.

I would like to share with you this piece of writing I did about 3 years ago, which I uncovered during the move. I wrote it on a retreat, held by my friends Chetana and Will. I hope that perhaps it carries you somewhere:-

Divinity Intended

I cannot speak…for talking this out is nothing at all anymore. This Silence bears witness to all of that and is also all of that. No need for words anymore. My silent spoken friend, awareness, finally stayed after his tea was drunk.

I saw what is true for me and accepted the somehow burden of it. This being done, You came in again. Then, the deeper revelation – the surrender……. No holding back this time. You showed me all, You revealed Yourself in the night, in the day, in the detail – all at once. That timeless moment – Now. All my burdens are laid down in You. All my heavy weighty blindness and my deafness to Your song is gone. Now I see it all. The game that I played – You knew my every move. You were always bathing it in that Light, yet only now can I see this.

What needs to happen, needs to happen. Yes, this is true. But what I failed to understand was the pitch perfect way this is all going. The sheerness of a thousand songs called out in Your name. It must be as it is and as it will be. You are the One, I am That. I found You again, and in the finding, I am no longer me. No longer isolated from You, my beautiful Muse, my all, my everything. I didn’t know that this way is the way. This precise way which you are unfolding… Divinity Intended. Not outside anymore, not happening to a me. Divinity Intended. A button unbuttoned and a comb combed. The jeans and the hair of Existence.

What has to happen…it’s unfolding, opening – at Its pace alone. Only Your rhythm exists. You lovemaker… It’s all happening now, and now, and now. There is no other; no other at all. This is Your game, and I feel no distance from You anymore. Somehow, I have not transferred this, not managed to translate this – the incredible depth of what is here.

Earthshift and Deepening in Divinity

Hello 🙂

How are you?

I am well and finally getting the chance to sit down and write to you. At the end of my time with Amma in India, I actually went on an unplanned trip to Boston to do some advanced training in Vortex Healing, as some of you have heard.

The first class I took was the ‘Earthshift’. This type of Vortex class is a fantastic opportunity to work on the earth and on humanity’s consciousness as a whole. Ric (the founder of Vortex Healing and teacher of this class) had perceived a particular point of ‘choice’ in human history where the human race had moved into a type of Maliciousness / negativity / evil. He wanted our help as a group to release this karmic choice point (which had actually happened 200,000 years ago), thereby aligning humanity a little more closely with Love and Truth instead. The angelic realm was very involved in this. Amongst other extras, we also focussed our channelling power into humanity’s psyche and the individual karmic burdens which were part of this Maliciousness at the level of humanity as a whole.

The second class was one in which we melted into embodiment of another class I took a few years ago (you may remember, it was called ‘Awakening to Divinity’). This class was about resting in and as Divinity, utilising powerful group meditations and transmissions to assist this. There really isn’t much to say about that as you can imagine – lol! But what I can speak about are the new skills and insights I have to offer you in sessions, which also came from this training.

Ric discovered that the core emotional (karmic + genetic) position of human beings and also other species, is Loneliness. The Core Loneliness we feel deep down exacerbates the false sense of separation from Divinity, and in turn creates hunger for various things : power, status, security, sex, connection, love etc. etc. At the same time, the survival anxiety conditioning we carry fuels that hunger. So this core emotional position is very important to address and can have amazing results, which is why we even worked on Core Loneliness in the class itself.

Whereas before in session, the Divine was transmuting the point of choice (in terms of a particular issue) for you (i.e., the point in childhood where something happened, like a trauma, and you ‘chose’ to align with and continue a particular past-life theme), because of this class several other Choice Points can also now be released – including Genetic and BodyMind Choice Points.

Another amazing tool I have from this class is called Bio-Dynamic Flow. Receiving this work feels a bit like Cranial-Sacral or Jin Shin techniques. A variety of ‘flows’ and ‘tides’ that exist everywhere in creation are activated and directed to melt away places of rigidity and tension in the human body, and system as a whole. This Bio-Dynamic Flow moves in slow waves, akin to there being a ‘very long tide’ in Cranial work, if you like. Please note that this particular tool can only be used in person. The best description I have heard of it so far was from a client, who said, “It’s like relaxing at the level of atoms.”

I am changing the timing and fees of my work. Sessions are now 1 & 1/4 hrs:-

Call-out = £100

Barbican venue = £90

Distance healing = £75

Please make a note of these changes.

Back in London :-)

Hello 🙂

How are you? I have missed you on my epic trip! I am back in London and giving sessions – so please contact me by text, WhatsApp or Messenger to book.

I think the biggest gift Amma gave me this time was to make me believe in love again. Or perhaps to remind me that I never really stopped believing. And she did this in one single Darshan (the hug). When you consider what I have been through recently, with the breakdown of my engagement to Steve, this is quite something. I had spent two months crying, yet as soon as Amma returned to the ashram from her North India Tour, I received a spontaneous unplanned Darshan (without even a token), and everything changed. It was as if the light-switch of my heart got turned on again. How she does what she does I will never know, but I am so deeply grateful that she does it. And thus my personal healing journey began…

I heard a story at the ashram, from a long-time Amma devotee, which I would like to share with you. It is taken from recorded talks by Swami Paramatmananda (Nealu). Many many years ago, when the ashram was a different place and Amma’s organisation was small, it was nearing bedtime and Amma was brushing her teeth with the Swamis. Suddenly she froze in the middle of brushing and fainted on the floor. When she had come round, Swami Paramatmananda asked, “Amma, what happened – why did you pass out?” Amma told him to go and look in a particular hut on the ashram. There he would find a monk sitting in front of his altar and crying to the Divine. Amma said that this monk’s focus was so one-pointed to the Divine, to realise enlightenment, that she had left her body to go directly to him. That was why she had collapsed. Sure enough, the Swami went to the hut and there was the monk in swathes of devotion, crying his heart out in surrender in front of his altar.

To finish (as I have very limited time for anything but giving sessions at the moment) I want to share an inspiring quote which I heard on the plane, as part of a TED talk on emotional maturity:-

“Courage is not the absence of fear. Courage is fear walking.”

Sending you so much Love and Peace,

xDaisy

India Sun Rising

Hello 🙂

How are you?

I received more replies to my last email than to any other email I have ever written. It is good to discover that authenticity and transparency are so valued in the world. Your responses were wise, insightful and heart-warming, and all that positive energy has done wonders for the healing process I am in. Having said that, this is the process of my lifetime, and I am still so deeply in it that it is too early to share about it just now. As I mentioned in the other email, I will be taking my time with Amma in Amritapuri to heal myself. But please know that I will be giving sessions again from the 10th April onwards.

Events you might like:-

On Saturday 23rd March, there are Bhajans and Satsang (including meditation and chanting) at Amma’s UK ashram in Bromley. Please arrive by 5 30pm: 40A Letchworth Drive, Bromley, BR2 9BE

On Saturday 31st March, there are Bhajans and Satsang (including meditation and chanting) at Amma’s UK ashram in Bromley. Please arrive by 10 30am: same address

https://www.theopensecret.com/talks.html#london

I will be flying tomorrow. Take good care of yourselves while I am away, and please meditate 🙂 Amma always reminds us that meditation is more precious than gold, and that even a few moments spent in meditation are not a waste of time.

Much Love to you, I will miss you,

xDaisy

Fierce Grace

Hello 🙂

How are you?

I will get straight to the point today. I’m afraid I have some shocking and sad news which I want to share with you as a matter of transparency and authenticity. Within the last few weeks, Steve has ended our engagement and our relationship. I think we are both still in shock about this. The change is drastic, especially on a human life earth level. Knowing him as well as I do, I know that he would not have done this without good reasons, even though these reasons are only partially clear at the moment.

In facing and working through the extreme emotions and thoughts I am having, I am moving gradually into acceptance. Slowly, I am developing trust in what is happening. And when my intuition visits, it seems to be saying Yes to the ending of my partnership with Steve. I am left in astonishment at how unpredictable the dynamic aspect of Truth is.

As self-care, I have decided to take my upcoming time at the ashram in India with Amma (7th March – 8th April) to focus on healing myself. Before and after this period I am still working, so please don’t be shy about asking for sessions.

Love and best wishes to you,

xDaisy

Happy News :-)

Hello 🙂

How are you?

I would like to begin by sharing a portion of my diary with you, from the time I was recently at the ashram in India with Amma. Even though it is always hard to translate what being there is like, I hope you get a sense of it from this:-

5/12/18

[written retrospectively, after a few days] When Steve and I arrived on this ashram and entered our room, Silence fell deep in my heart. I sat in a chair by the window and watched a palm frond blowing in the wind, seeing the sea in the background. Everything was made of Silence. It was such a penetrating sensation……bodily, and on every other level as well. Then, as I sat down, I began to feel ripples of Silent Energy washing through my brain and body. Everything had come to a still point and the visceral sense of this went on for a few hours. The experience (for want of a better word) was marked by not looking for anything. I was not trying to get anything. Understand that I was not making any effort to be like that, it was just happening – quite without my say-so. Silent Being: this is a way of (perhaps) describing what it was. And I simply did what was natural: sitting down in a chair, gazing, lying down on a bed. After a while, a few insights drifted to me and opened up inside like flowers. ”

I have some very happy news: Steve and I are engaged 🙂 🙂 🙂 Amma talked to Steve about it during his darshan, and we decided soon after that 🙂 🙂 🙂 

I will be returning to the ashram for the month of March, and I will be offering distance sessions from there – so please do book. Alternatively, please arrange your in-person sessions around the India dates (which are 7th March – 8th April) and note that I am indeed currently in London.

If you are looking for things to do in London, here are the next dates for Tony Parsons and for Rupert Spira:-

Tony: Saturday 2nd Feb, 2pm – 5pm (plus social afterwards) at The Friends Meeting House in Hampstead, £15

Happy New Year!

Hello,

How are you?

Amritapuri was incredible……. I was contemplating what I could share with you about my time with Amma. I think the best way would be to offer you her White Flowers Meditation as a file via Dropbox. In this meditation is contained Amma’s Love, core teaching and the way to the deepest aspect of what we are as human-Being. If you would like this, please email me.

I love this time of year because of the Silence. The group consciousness relaxes, and then all of us are somehow drawn inward to what is left when noise dies down and we begin to fall into what remains. Even a single branch on a wintry tree tells us this, if we have the ears to listen.

Many of you have expressed interest in beginning the practice of the 1000 Names, but feel understandably a little overwhelmed by this at first. So here is a version I think you will like. Whether it is just listening for pleasure or to begin to learn this chant, check out this version, sung by renowned Keralan vocalist Kavalam Srikumar:-

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3tWEzUj9P8

I am now back giving sessions, so please text, WhatsApp or Messenger me to book a session if you would like one. Good news regarding Vortex Healing – Ric Weinman (founder) has discovered that by adding Vortex Energy to Manifesting Intention when channelling, all transformation deepens significantly throughout sessions. I have already had great results with this, I think in particular because the ACP (Actual Channelling Power) of each energy is not compromised. So I am looking forward to sharing this with you 🙂

I would like to offer you a quote from a stunning book called ‘Silence of the Heart’, by Robert Adams. Apparently this is one of only two books Amma has recommended everyone reads (the other being ‘Daughter of Fire’, by Irina Tweedy). Robert was an awake teacher who gave talks in California as far back as the early 1950s. When I met Adyashanti in 2002, I thought he was a one-off, and the first of his kind, but it turns out that was not the case. So discovering Robert’s work is particularly touching for me in many different ways. This passage stopped me in my tracks and I felt I must share it with you:-

“Enjoy the world if you can. But do not allow the world to be your master. Do not allow the world to tell you how things are. Do not allow the news or the newspaper or the way of the world to confound you and confuse you. Or to make you sad or angry, or upset you. After all, it’s the same as seeing a movie. You look at the movie and you see all kinds of dastardly things going on. But then you catch yourself and you say, “It’s only a movie! It’s not the truth.” And so it is with life. You observe everything that’s going on in life, you watch, you look, you see. Yet you never react. You’re never for or against. You understand, and this makes you free.” ~ Robert Adams (pg. 33, Silence of the Heart)

I wish you the happiest of New Years and hope that – knowing truly that – 2019 brings you closer to the Silence, to Love and to Truth. May Oneness reign ever more obviously over all things in this appearance.

Love,

xDaisy

Journey Into The Heart

Hello 🙂

How are you?

I am well and enjoying the build-up to my trip to be with Amma in India tomorrow 🙂 I will have to make this newsletter very brief and a little speedy I’m afraid.

I will be away from tomorrow 27th Nov – 22nd Dec. Please note that I will have limited digital access while on the ashram, but you can try me on WhatsApp, Messenger and email.

I would love to hear any stories about your experiences of Amma’s recent visit to Surrey if you would like to share them. I had an absolutely wicked time! Just loved it! And through our seva (selfless service) in the massage area, our team made £7000 for Amma’s charity ‘Embracing The World’ 🙂 In case you didn’t know (since it is a unique attribute, as far as I know) Amma’s entire organisation is run without anyone being paid. No money which comes in goes to any person within the organisation. All work is carried out voluntarily and for free, with people donating their valuable attention, effort and time to make all the incredible things which Embracing The World achieves possible. This means that everything generated can go directly to assist people living in poverty, orphaned, hit by natural disasters, homeless, in need of life-saving surgery – the list goes on and on. Particularly impressive is Amma’s work to empower women in India by giving them grants to start their own businesses, after learning that poverty is best alleviated through women generating income.

www.embracingtheworld.org

Some exciting events coming up:-

Bromley ashram will be opening some time in the New Year. We are all working hard to make this possible 🙂 When it is up and running there will be satsangs, talks and all kinds of activities going on there. It feels very special for Amma to have a centre in the UK at last, after decades of trying to find a place 🙂

I advise booking now for Adyashanti in London for a very rare satsang on the 16th Aug next year. See ‘Alternatives’ or ‘EventBrite’ sites. Adya is also doing retreats in both Holland and Woldingham (Surrey) just before this, and you can enter the waiting list for these here: www.adyashanti.org

There is a Foundational training in Vortex Healing® in London in February – see www.vortexhealing.com

Ok, I better finish packing! See you after the 22nd Dec, and enjoy yourselves 🙂

Lots of Love,

xDaisy

Amma Hits London Tomorrow! :-)

Hello 🙂

How are you? I am good 🙂 I have spent the day (like my other days off at the moment) helping to build the new ashram for Amma in Bromley. I love doing seva (selfless service)… 🙂 It honestly makes me happier than anything in the world. I have no idea why – lol! But I really love it. Soon the new place will be ready and will operate as the M.A. Centre for the UK, and as a community centre in between Embracing The World events.

Tomorrow Amma comes in person to Sandown Racecourse in Esher, Surrey. The final night is Friday and it’s the all-nighter. Here is all the information you need:-

www.amma.org.uk

If you haven’t yet met Amma, here is a documentary you may be interested in watching:-

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YsxZI0PBl_A&t=17s

I am still here until the 27th, when I fly to the ashram in India for 3 and a half weeks – so I will return from there on the 22nd December. Please book your sessions accordingly, as I will not be able to give sessions from the ashram this time. I will be available via WhatsApp, Messenger and email there though, but bear in mind it is rural India without Wifi, so contact will be sporadic.

If you come to Amma in Sandown this week, come and find me in the massage area where I should be for most of the 3 days. Much Love to you all 🙂

xDaisy

Amma in London :-) :-) :-)

Hello 🙂

How are you?

I want to share the exciting news that Amma is coming on the 14th – 16th (incl all night 16th) November! She is returning to Sandown Racecourse (Surrey) this year. If you would like a gentle Seva (service job) with good vibes, please come and help us in the massage area. You can either help on reception, or (if you are a qualified and insured masseur) by giving treatments. Even a couple of hours volunteering makes a huge difference to Amma’s program, and to her unique international humanitarian aid charity ‘Embracing The World’. Doing Seva (selfless service) also creates happiness within and fills you with Shakti (Divine Energy) 🙂 Here is the link for information on the venue, transport and how to get a free Darshan (hug) token etc.:-

www.amma.org.uk

People often tell me about ‘seeing signs’, or ask me what I think about this. Spending time with Amma in Holland recently gave me the chance to be in solitude for long periods of time, and in that space some wisdom came to me which I want to share with you. What hit me is that, truly,  when we see a ‘sign’, we are often simply seeing our conditioning reflected – as if in a mirror. What we see, especially the ‘bad’ stuff, is usually not truth, but merely ego playing. It is mind, and that tends to see what it wants to see (no matter how convincing things seem). Many times we are taking things to be truths which are really our own negative (or positive) fantasies. The very origin point of such conclusions about ourselves, life and others is missing the mark completely. True truth, which can come as instinct or intuition, although it doesn’t need to, isn’t like that. It is calm and without doubt, it is clear without being forced, and without forcing. It is usually rarer than all those ‘signs’ and mind-made things.

Amma’s Devi Bhava speech in Holland was very moving and, though I tried to write down a lot of it, I was too moved to be writing during much of it. Absorbing her wisdom ended up being quite consuming. There were a few things I got down, though, which I would like to share with you. Amma said that there is a big difference between our physical and mental health: our physical health depends on how much we move our body, whereas our mental health depends on how still we keep our mind. She also pointed out that when we pour out our sorrows to God, it is actually like a meditation – a quest to reach God. And I love Amma’s version of make-up: she said, “Let us colour our lips with words of truth.”

I will be returning to Amritapuri (Amma’s ashram in India) from the 27th Nov – 22nd Dec, and during that time I will be unavailable for sessions. However, you can contact me on WhatsApp, Messenger and email, where I will be available for any crises. So please get your sessions in before that period, or book for afterwards.

Love,

xDaisy

Devotion

Hello 🙂

How are you?

I am here in London, adjusting to the changes that my life brings, in this case the return from ashram life to city life. I don’t know if anyone remembers that seminal track by Goldie – ’Inner City Life’? That more-or-less encapsulates how it feels.

When sitting down to write about a living master, one faces a dilemma: the sense that the living presence of such a being, and the ‘experience’ (for want of a better word) of that, can never be confined to words or descriptions. It’s very hard to say anything about Amma. She both is and is not, she manifests as both form and formless in a continuous cascade. Perhaps the way in which my friends and I feel her in the most tangible way, is as Supreme Love: a Love that goes completely beyond anything imaginable, and which cuts through every vestige of the human ego, revealing the ultimate secret of this universe. If anyone is asking why I spend so much time with my spiritual teacher, this is why.

I wish I could give some kind of account of my stay with Amma in Amritapuri, but that really would just be words. You see, it’s a living thing with her. You don’t go about your day and then sit down and write your diary, and feel all good about what you’ve understood, and then go to sleep again. It’s not like that. The path with Amma is the path of action, of expression, of interaction and of an outpouring of a selflessness you had no idea was inside you, waiting to come out. This Love moves, this Silence transforms without leaving itself. This true way throws the human being into complete Mystery, not only once, but constantly. And miracles rain down upon everyone in that ashram like the monsoons. I’m aware that I sound like I’ve drunk the Kool-Aid – lol!

Those of you who have visited the ashram will know that one of the ways people deepen in their closeness with Amma and her teachings, is through sharing stories about her. I heard many extraordinary accounts while I was there this time. One never knows whether such stories are true, mythological or a version of a truth. To me, that is not ultimately the most important thing: for me, it is this unknown space…this Mystery, that such stories deepen me into which matters the most. One night, we met a new friend. As we got to know him over the course of our stay on the ashram (in saying ‘we’ and ‘our’, I am referring to Steve and I – yes, we are back together 🙂 🙂 :-)), this friend began to tell us the story of how he met Amma. The story begins before he was born. His father heard about Amma and took my friend’s sister to meet Her in Manchester in 1989. When they went for Darshan the father said to his daughter, “You are in the presence of God, you can ask anything you like.” The daughter told Amma that she wanted a little brother. Amma looked to the father and asked if he and his wife wanted another child. The father replied Yes, but that they could not, because his wife had gone through the menopause. Amma said Ok, and smiled at the daughter. A couple of months later, the mother began her periods again. Soon after this, she was pregnant. My friend was born in due course. Not long after the birth, Amma was due to visit England again. The father stayed at home with his new son (my friend), while the mother – who had never met Amma yet – and her daughter went to the program. As the mother fell into Amma’s arms for Darshan, Amma said to this woman – who she was meeting for the first time and had no information about – “Are you happy now that you have a son?” The mother burst into tears and surrendered. Hearing this story flooded me with energy rushes and goosebumps. I would never want to, or try to, prove whether it is true or not. I don’t know that. All I can say is that the sense of resonance throughout my entire being upon hearing it was overwhelming, and that the feeling of reality, realness, hitting-the-mark – whatever you want to call it – opened up within me in a profound way.

This actually leads me into something else I wanted to share with you. People often ask me about intuition, and feel that I have some expertise in this area. I don’t know about that, but I did discover something more about the whole thing when I was with Amma in the ashram. I hope that including this diary entry might assist you in your own journey with with your sense of intuition / instinct.

12/9/18

The answer came in Darshan today. There was no need to tune-in, check, ‘ask Amma inside’, or anything like that. When I was relaxed and open – simple, and in my being, one could say – I felt during Amma’s long embrace that [X]. It didn’t come mentally. It didn’t come through any kind of asking. It didn’t come in a big bang. It came through the feeling body. This relative truth came as a sort-of feeling, a kind-of sense, which ran like a river through my heart. So, yes, as [Y] reminded me that time: trust the truth that comes naturally, like a gift.”

That’s all for now. If you would like to book a session or talk about anything, please call, message or text me.

Much Love,

xDaisy

“The silent abyss beyond all knowing” ~ Adyashanti

Hello 🙂

How are you?

I am in the midst of a potent time in my life, between the retreat I have just completed with Adyashanti and the time I am about to spend with Amma. I feel such wonderment and gratitude about this. They are the only words I can find in this moment to express how I am feeling. I don’t know why my life is this way – so filled with Divine opportunities – and why it is not another way. I can only bow down before the Grace that brought this all here.

The way I feel from being on the 7 day silent meditation retreat with Adyashanti is that I have now put all my eggs in one basket – that of Silence. There is this abiding trust now in the wisdom of Silence itself. On the level of experience (as it could be called), the Silence has become the foreground. It is hard to give an explanation of what this means for anyone who is struggling to understand (which may be no one of course). But here is an excerpt from my diary on retreat, of a particular day when this started to open fully:-

“Something really beautiful began to happen during the Silent Sittings today. I could, and still can, see all the way through my thoughts. I experience that absolutely everything arising there is conditioning. Previously, I had been assigning Truth to many many things…… Now I see that none of this is Truth. The contraction deep in my belly when something comes up is not Truth – it is conditioning. It’s the same with the things people say to me, and what arises in me in reactivity – conditioning. None of this is Truth. I am finally free.

I don’t say this as a grand statement about enlightenment. I mean simply that I am free from the grip of my mind and my deep emotional conditioning, inasmuch as I see it for what it is. It is no longer fooling me. I see through it all in a clear way. I am free.

In a sense it could be said that in the meditations, I perceived what arose in the Silence and the Silence itself as distinct from one another. And perhaps this is why Silence is often likened to the unknown. Because it is that – Silence is unknown and unknowing everything.”

I have decided to take my upcoming time in India off work for self-care and to volunteer for Amma’s charity ‘Embracing the World’, in their efforts to care for those affected by the flooding in Kerala.

This means I will be unavailable from the 30th August to the 26th September.

I will have limited digital contact, so you are welcome to try me. But please be aware that I cannot give sessions during that time.

Wishing you love and freedom from the heart of Silence,

xDaisy

Manifesting Intention Review

Hello 🙂

How are you? This email is a little late in coming to you, but I have finally had the chance to gather my thoughts from the last Vortex Healing training – Manifesting Intention – which I completed at the end of May.

Before I get started on that, I want to remind you that I am fortunate enough to be attending a silent meditation retreat with Adyashanti from tomorrow until the 18th August. This means absolutely no digital contact during that time.

Another reminder, as not everyone realises yet, I have the venue in Barbican back on Wednesdays, for those of you who cannot (or prefer not to) be treated at home. Distance sessions continue as normal. I have decided to keep my price the same, rather than raising, having looked into it with the support of Amma and Merlin (the Divine Being at the heart of Vortex Healing).

So, what do we mean by ‘Manifesting Intention’? Firstly, it’s important to explain that this has nothing to do with the plethora of techniques about getting what you want. This has to do with alignment and rooting inside Divinity, and then meeting that as it manifests through creation. One way of thinking about it is that it’s the Divine getting what it wants: you being the Divine at the deepest level of what you are, but certainly not on the level of ego or I or mine / me. Manifesting Intention is not about manifesting ‘my will’. As a healer, the difference between this and everything else we have in Vortex Healing is that I am going directly to Divine Intention at the point that it arises in creation, and channelling from there. We now use the term ‘re-manifesting’ instead of ‘transforming’ or ‘clearing’, because to heal what is being healed we are actually helping to re-manifest the Divinity from inside what is off. Now, of course, the manifesting of Divine Intention is happening all the time through all of creation. The transmission I have from this class helps you to align more deeply with that. In this way, it’s a healing and an awakening and an embodiment aid all at the same time. Pretty mind-blowing!

In class, we talked a lot about kidney energy. You will have noticed that I focus a lot there in almost every session, and now I have a way of channelling compressed Jing and Chi energies into the kidneys using MI (Manifesting Intention). I learned more about why this part of the body – and its resonance throughout the rest of the body – is so important. The Chi of the kidneys governs hormones – that’s a huge chunk of your body’s systems – and the kidney energy holds the toned-ness and strength of the whole body.

We also discussed gut health. These days there is a lot of talk about micro-biome and it was interesting to get Ric Weinman’s (teacher of the class and holder of the Vortex Healing lineage) opinion about this. He made the point that it’s not just about what we are eating, even though that is important. He believes that the health of the gut is a reflection of the health of the entire system. It reveals where a person is mentally, emotionally, karmically, genetically etc. Also, certain kinds of probiotics can actually be unhelpful (for example some can even exacerbate candida), so it is a good idea to tune in with your body before buying a probiotic. I tend to do this with all supplements anyway – and yes, you can even do this through the screen when shopping on Amazon 🙂 Simply feel from your body – perhaps with eyes closed to make it easier to see / sense – and experience whether your body wants that particular product or not.

With skin problems, Ric advised examining the liver. Essentially, when the liver is not functioning well, then the body is forced to detox it’s shit through the skin. He said that the toxicity comes from karmic (past life), genetic, emotional and food / environmental / physical factors and lifestyle stress combined.

And we have made a breakthrough in clearing chronic viruses such as Herpes and Epstein-Barr with Manifesting Intention. It is now possible to knock out most of these, even the very tricky Herpes!

See you after the retreat 🙂

Love,

xDaisy

Stillness and Service

Hello,

How are you?

I am well. I wanted to let you know of two upcoming events which I am attending, to give you the chance to plan sessions if you want to:-

I will be on a silent meditation retreat with Adyashanti in England from the 11th – 18th August, and I am going to serve on Amma’s ashram in India from the 30th August – 26th September.

Much Love to you,

xDaisy

Amma: Compassion Visionary

Hello 🙂

How are you? I am very well indeed 🙂 I was hoping to write to you earlier, but it seems now is the time. First of all, just to let you know that I am back in London and working – so please do message or call my phone to book a session. Plus, I have the venue back. So it’s Wednesdays at Barbican. Some of you will appreciate this, as you either cannot have sessions in your home, or prefer not to. House calls, though, and distant sessions remain available.

Being with Amma on her west coast US Tour was phenomenal… If you have not yet had the chance to meet this fascinating visionary of Compassion, please do take the opportunity. Amma tours for around eight months of each year and the rest of the time is in her ashram in Kerala (India). So, if you are ever going abroad, check in with her websites to see if your paths cross. The dates for the London program at the moment look to be the 11th – 12th November at Sandown Race Course in Surrey (with the Devi Bhava all-nighter being on the 12th). Please do check nearer the time for the update on this, as it can change.

Amma is not just another teacher, another guru. We are talking about, without mincing words, the most exact embodiment of Divinity on the planet alive today. The benefits of spending time in Her physical presence simply cannot be quantified. Just a few examples of this are: experiencing the true nature of Unconditional Love, broadening learning on how to give and why it is so important, and awakening and embodiment. Not to mention engaging in the far-reaching humanitarian aid work Amma is doing, through Her global charity ‘Embracing the World’, and all its volunteers. Bear in mind that neither Amma, nor the Swamis or Swamini, nor any of her senior devotees, nor any of us are paid for the work we do. This is why her charity remains uniquely effective in delivering to its millions of recipients in India and all over the world.

Check out her charity:-

www.embracingtheworld.org

Her US Tour (still happening):-

www.amma.org

And her Indian site:-

www.amritapuri.org

Above, you will find all the information you need on meeting Amma and on her charitable activities. If you do not, please don’t hesitate to ask me.

I want to give you a little personal account of just a couple of the amazing things I experienced with Amma this time. The first is a diary entry from my working week in between having just taken the Vortex Healing® Manifesting Intention course and my time with Amma:-

25/5/18

I was in my bedroom contemplating this continuous drive towards God which I feel so pressingly within. All of a sudden, an alarm began to ring very loudly. I had never heard this particular alarm before and didn’t know where it was coming from. I searched the room. Finally, hidden behind furniture, I found this old dusty digital clock; clearly, it had been left untouched for months, maybe even years. Within the displayed time was 108. As I gazed at this in amazement, the numbers turned to 109, and the alarm clock stopped ringing.

As many of you know, 108 is a particularly auspicious number in Indian spirituality and we chant the 108 Names of the Divine Mother as part of Amma’s recommended sadhana (spiritual practices). A week and a half afterwards, it felt like this bolt-from-the-blue came to fruition while I was on Tour with Amma. I was in Seattle and had been up all night on Devi Bhava, being with Amma and doing seva (selfless service) with my friends. Here is an excerpt from what I wrote:-

4/6/18

After Darshan, I was given a seat right in front of Amma. I fell Silent, totally peaceful, content and happy. Eventually I was moved, but I lingered at the back of the stage. I was left untouched standing there for more than an hour – during which time I was totally transfixed by Amma. Watching Her, I deepened more and more into Silence.

Then, the man who plays the guitar beautifully began to play a solo during Swami Dayamrita’s bhajan set. It was so wonderful, it began to carry me… Suddenly, I was overcome and I began to cry. I felt everything and nothing, I felt union. The sense of union (for want of a better word – a word that doesn’t exist) was so deep…in a felt way, in a way that was choiceless and without an exit gate or any room for doubt. I felt relief and completion in a way that was total. I called out in my heart to Amma, “Thank you, thank you, thank you Amma. I can hardly believe that this is my life. Help me to Surrender – I want to Surender all of my life, everything, to You.” I was crying for a long time; every time I would look at Amma, it would start again. It had hit me – really, really hit me – what She is doing here. I felt overwhelmed at seeing the Reality of Her. That she chose this life she is living – that She has come to us to uplift us, in the most profound sense – the whole world, the whole of humanity. It’s hard to get it across in words, what I felt and perceived. I kept crying and silently calling out to Amma in my heart, “Thank you, thank you Amma – thank you Amma, thank you Amma.” The gratitude I felt was completely overwhelming. In between my tears and praying, I would simply watch Her giving Darshan, feeling this one-pointed longing / bridging into Divinity itself – like I was being fast-tracked to God. When my mind would occasionally start up again, Amma would turn and look at me, and my mind was stopped, and I would be returned into the Silence. It was as if She was showing me the utter beyond-ness of Divinity through this whole thing.

I would like to end with a quote directly from Amma. I hope you enjoy it. I recommend reading it out loud to yourself for full effect:-

“Compassion does not see the faults of others. It does not see the weaknesses of people. It makes no distinction between good and bad people. Compassion cannot draw a line between two countries, two faiths or two religions. Compassion has no ego; thus there is no fear, lust or passion. Compassion simply forgives and forgets. Compassion is like a passage. Everything passes through it. Nothing can stay there. Compassion is love expressed in all its fullness.”

❤️ Amma (Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi)

Love,

xDaisy

AMMA :-) :-) :-)

Hello 🙂

How are you?

I am happy and well, if tired, and now without the time to write you the email about the wonderful Manifesting Intention course which I had hoped to write. I leave to be with Amma early tomorrow morning. Many more of you wanted sessions than I had anticipated, so my time has been well spent giving these. Please bear with me on that email though; there is so much exciting stuff to share with you once I have the proper time to go through my notes.

I am thrilled about seeing my teacher! I will be with Her in Seattle, San Ramon and Los Angeles. I leave early tomorrow morning and return on the 19th June (morning). I will be engaged in seva (selfless service) while I am there and will have very limited digital access.

www.amma.org

I hope this email finds you well and enjoying life, and I very much look forward to seeing you after the 19th June.

Love,

Manifesting Intention

Hello 🙂

How are you? I am very well indeed, and writing to you from the airport lounge as I begin my epic journey of many parts back to London, from the Vortex Healing course in Virginia Beach which just ended.

I land late on the 24th, and am offering sessions from 25th to 31st May (before Amma for 2 weeks). Please WhatsApp, text or call to book for this period or for when I am back (19th June onwards).

The feeling of bliss and happiness is profound…really profound. If any of you are on the Vortex trajectory and thinking about stepping off, I strongly encourage you to persevere with courses. Awakening to Divinity (last one) and Manifesting Intention (this one) are hard to describe they are so good!! Just Wow……and very few words. I feel so grateful to the Divine, to Amma, to my Vortex family and to Ric, for facilitating this course. The sense of awakeness is ever deeper and deeper. That’s the most amazing thing. And this sense of happiness and bliss arising from within, regardless of situations, amazes me… Everything is so soft…

I could just hug and kiss everyone! Probably not advisable though, in an airport lounge.

I am so looking forward to sharing this new energy of Manifesting Intention with you 🙂 🙂 🙂  Must go for now, but simply wanted to connect with you all and share this…this – whatever this is, in some way. I will write some coherent stuff soon. There’s a lot of new and interesting information with this course.

Much Love,

xDaisy

Hello 🙂

How are you? 

I want to write a little about my experiences with Mother Meera during her visit to London, happening now. I have been fortunate enough to have been seeing her for around 10 years. Please see this website if you would like to know more:-

https://mothermeera.org.uk/

As soon as I was seated in the hall yesterday, there was this return to the natural state. It’s not that easy to put into words, but suddenly meditation was happening with no meditator and without any effort to meditate. I could feel Silence pouring like liquid gold through my body, and now and then there were rushes of something like energy, as if my cells were coming alive after a deep sleep. This took over, and in that takeover, I returned to innocence. Each thought, story and emotion which arose was unresisted and simply seen for what it was, without indulgence. Again, there was no efforting – it all seemed to happen without me. I sat like this for a long time. 

When it was my turn to join the queue for the staring Darshan, a bhajan from Amma began to ‘play’ in the background of my awareness 🙂 When I was in front of Mother Meera with her hands on my head, my mind came to a complete stop, and even this bhajan stopped. As she looked into my eyes, I experienced total and utter oneness…which seemed to pour itself into infinity. Everything left me – all suffering, all concepts – all things left. As I rose and walked down the steps after this, a different bhajan from Amma began to ‘play’ lightly once again 🙂 I sat for a long time afterwards. When Mother Meera did her group staring Darshan at the end, I noticed such a shift in the energy in the entire room… Did anyone else feel that? It was wonderful to see some of you there 🙂 and hopefully you all got my email detailing this visit a while back?. 

After I left with friends to eat together, several remarkable things happened that day, which I simply cannot see as anything but Divine synchronicity and Grace 🙂 Firstly, on the way home strangers kept talking to me – and this is on the tube in London!! One mother began to talk to me about her son skateboarding – a big part of my history in this life 🙂 On the next leg of my journey, a woman began to offer everyone her chocolate biscuits – literally opening them up to strangers in the carriage. I felt such a love for people radiating from this action and from within this woman…so much so that I commented on it, and she knew that she had this gift. It actually turned out that she used to serve me fish’n’chips in the area where I lived many years ago! This got me thinking of one of my closest friends in the world (whom I had become estranged from) who lived in that area too. Later that evening – and I’m not joking! – that friend called me, completely out of the blue, to apologise and ask if we could be friends again. Incredible… And then that night, my Mum and I started laughing together spontaneously like children – like we used to when we were both younger. We couldn’t stop! And then we hugged and made up about a stupid fight we’d had. I could hardly take in all the Grace… 

It really couldn’t have come at a better time. These last two months have been so painful… First my uncle died suddenly, then I broke up with my fiancé and then there grew this rift (described above) between my close friend and I. The pain of breaking with Steve got so intense that I was crying almost continuously, with bone-crushing emotional agony. In facing this depth of pain and loss without running away from it, I eventually experienced self-effulgence for perhaps the first time on my own. In the end, I was forced into the Light within myself. My heart still overflows with love and passion for Steve… And yet, simultaneously, there is a deep intuitive clarity that we cannot be together at this time. It’s the weirdest thing ever in my life. If I were to go against this, I would be sacrificing my integrity, and I simply cannot do that anymore. Even for the love of my life. 

I would love to hear your experiences with or after Mother Meera, so please don’t hesitate to write to me about them. Or about anything else (as I have demonstrated here! I hope you will forgive my indulgence :-). I look forward to seeing you or working with you again soon.

So much Love 🙂 🙂 🙂

Foundational Training in Vortex Healing®: 20th March, London

Hello 🙂

 

I wanted to let you know about the upcoming training in Vortex Healing® with Anthony Gorman, here in London on the 20th March. It is a 5 day Foundational Training and open to everyone, also repeaters. I know that a few of you are booked onto the class already, which is exciting 🙂 It is one of the top 3 classes in the lineage in my opinion, along with Core Veil and Awakening to Divinity. Have a look here:-

Please contact me by WhatsApp or other method if you have any questions about this class.

Earthshift!

Hello 🙂

How are you? I am well and feeling very inspired after attending the Vortex Healing Earthshift here in London yesterday 🙂 The What?? Ok, let me explain 😉

For more than 15 years now, the Vortex Healing teachers have been getting together privately and also during classes to effect change on the planet by channelling Divinity into aspects of both earth (Gaia) and human consciousness. Essentially what this means is clearing out the rare black magic, demonic and power-based energetic beings which attach themselves to humans with power issues, and then act through them in the world. I know this sounds a little far out! But bear with me. What the Vortex theory is suggesting is that there are forces behind everything we see in the world, influencing human beings, which can be affected in a positive way by Divinity, by prayer, by you and by me. Did you know, for example, that Saddam Hussein used to be controlled by one such being? Makes sense..? He was one of the people who the teachers helped (not to mention helping the rest of humanity) by clearing this being from his field. It feels true to me that there are both Light influences and dark influences at work in our universe: for example, there is Amma transforming the human heart everywhere she goes and then there was Hitler convincing people of preposterous ideas which led to the torture and death of many people. At the same time, it is important to remember that everything is One. Everything is the One. Healing done from this realisation is healing that is truly free and far more effective.

So, what is an Earthshift? An Earthshift is a Vortex Healing class in which 60 – 200 people or so get together to address a particular part of human and / or earth consciousness, to serve Divinity and to assist the awakening embodiment evolution of human consciousness and of this planet. It needs a lot of healers because we become the interfaces through which Divine energy can act and effect change (like a concentrated version of what we humans are every day – the sense organs of the Divine – either knowingly or unknowingly.) Yesterday what we did was to transform the focus of Violence within the human group psyche. It’s a little bit like the principal of a karma knot, as many of you have probably heard me talk about: the root gets removed and that creates an enormous amount of transformation. But it doesn’t mean that what the root created gets cleared immediately, meaning that it’s not the case that suddenly the whole world is at peace. In the vein of this principal, the group of us channelled Divine energy to clear the root of this Violence, and then we did a rubbish clear-up job while we were ‘there’. This included clearing the threads into each individual from the focal point of violence and following through with the teachers’ previous work to transform and clear black magic and demonic beings and energies. It was an incredibly powerful movement! It felt very dense on a physical and on an emotional level, as everything moved through us. The biggest shift I experienced was after the focal point of Violence itself cleared: there was a wonderful sense of clarity in the group field of humanity 🙂

I am currently in London giving sessions, so let me know if you would like to partake.

Happiness Revisited

Hello 🙂

How are you? I am well, and enjoying London life once again. Yes, I’m properly back 🙂 There are a few things going on here that I thought you might be interested in. Each Thursday evening there is an Amma satsang at Villa Devi (an Amma community) in Brockley – please ask me for details, or join the FB group; then there is Mother Meera coming in April:-

https://booking.mothermeera.com/sessions/public

I will be there for the 10am session on the 3rd April, so let me know if you wish to join me. There is the inimitable (though many have tried) Tony Parsons, who gives a talk on the first Saturday of each month in Hampstead:-

https://www.theopensecret.com/talks.html#london

And the wonderful Rupert Spira, who sometimes give talks on a Friday evening in the same place. Additionally he does Alternatives in Piccadilly. I recommend a Q&A with him – really transformative and nourishing I have found:-

http://non-duality.rupertspira.com/home

On a different tack, I wanted to tell you what I have found out about happiness, according to research done by psychiatrists and psychologists (see the whole thing free on Netflix – ‘Happy’).

The findings showed that, contrary to popular belief, happiness is not created by circumstantial factors such as how much money you have, where you live etc: in fact these make up only 10%! The biggest single factor in the experience of happiness is actually genetics – a whopping 50%. It is interesting to note that, at baseline, one’s happiness spectrum (the up to the down) is largely influenced by our DNA. So if you’re feeling happy – no point in gloating, and if you’re feeling unhappy – you are not to blame and neither are your parents. Thankfully, we can work on genetics energetically using Vortex Healing, otherwise this could seem like something one had to resign oneself to 🙂 The other 40% is the most interesting part. Essentially this part, a whole 40%, is unaccounted for – it’s unknown. Make of that what you will 😉 What the scientists concluded about this part, also interesting I think, is that it is about our intentional activities – things we do to create happiness in our lives, such as being with friends, exercising, meditating, travelling etc. – and that variety is key to this part.

The aspect I found really warming about this research, was that it was discovered (again contrary to popular belief) that people who are focussed on intrinsic goals are happier than those focussed on extrinsic goals. Intrinsic goals were defined as personal development, close relationships of all kinds, and selfless service. Extrinsic goals were defined as status, image and wealth. It was found that the intrinsic types reported more happiness and less depression and anxiety than their extrinsic counterparts. It all completely goes against societal brainwashing. I was delighted to know that even scientists now believe that happiness is found within!

The research findings also made me think of Amma, whose entire organisation is centred around intrinsic goals, and who has always said that she doesn’t encourage us to do selfless service for her: it is because she sees how happy it makes us. And it really does. The happiest times in my life have been had serving her organisation. Even the focus on awakening has completely fallen away at times in these endeavours: all there was then was service in a seamless unbroken flow, without any sense at all of an ‘I’ or a ‘me’; without thought, without agenda and without distraction.

Wishing you deep happiness and even more than that, alignment with Divinity and the complete surrender to it.

Love,

xDaisy

Joy

Hello 🙂

How are you? I am very well indeed. I feel the happiest I have ever felt in my life. Happiness comes and goes, so I’m not forcing meaning into this, but I must say it is a delight to feel this way 🙂 🙂 🙂

I apologise for not writing sooner. I have been doing a lot of Europe Tour with Amma. I have also been welcoming a new relationship into my life. Some of you have already met Steve 🙂 The deep significance of this relationship to me is hard to put into words accurately. Being single for 4 years beforehand, and fully exploring that, was really important for me. The few lovers I had during that time were meaningful and the wondrous solitude was needed and nourishing. Now to be in this awakening embodiment evolution with someone who wants the same thing, to be in love and to have so much in common on a human level, plus things which compliment in their differences, is a Grace I find hard to fathom.

So, Amma….! How was it for you? It was a huge and exciting joy to see many of you in Surrey and also in the other places I went to with Amma (Switzerland, the Netherlands and Valencia.) Thank you for visiting me in the massage area, those of you who could. I really don’t have words right now for the Amma experience from my point of view….. I think that may partly be because I just did the 108 Names, the 1000 Names and the IAM. No mind 🙂 All I can think of to say about how I feel for Amma is deeply in love, and deeply deeply grateful for what she has given me on this Tour.

The other good news is that I will now be living in London for the foreseeable future, so I will be available for sessions every day. Please text / WhatsApp / call to arrange (NB: I often have the Barbican venue available on Wednesdays).

Love, care and Silence,

xDaisy

Sessions in London :-)

Hello 🙂

How are you? I am well. Integrating the Awakening to Divinity Vortex Healing course I just took in America. Then it was my Birthday, hence why it has taken so long to write. I wanted to let you know that I will now be in London until December. Please make the most of this time to have sessions in person. I will have the venue in Barbican on Wednesdays. After December I will be in London 3 days per week as usual. Distance sessions are available at any time.

Obviously the most important thing to mention is that Amma will soon be with us! Please note that the program is being held in Surrey, so it is advisable to get accommodation.

Amma’s London Visit Dates: Friday 17 & Saturday 18 November

Sandown Park Racecourse, Esher KT10 9AJ

I was contemplating today, the role of self-judgement and judgement of others in locking conditioning more in place – because that’s what it does. In my experience, personally and professionally, everything is karmic – it’s all about cause and effect, actions which create consequences, usually stretching back beyond the place we can even see. This karma has a momentum, which is strong, and it will play out in some way – even if a being like Amma comes in and softens it greatly. So the best we can do is to release the energy of it and reduce it using any tools we have, wake up inside of it, and serve selflessly. There’s no point in getting dark about it and self-criticising, because that doesn’t help, and if anything this actually makes the experience of what’s happening worse. I hope this helps you with your process.

What I want to say initially about this Vortex course is that there is no sense of separation anymore. It’s incredible… For those of you who follow these kinds of things, it is the biggest shift since Core Veil, which for me was 12 years ago. It’s not that nothing has shifted in between, but the enormity of what has changed I could only compare to the Core Veil movement, yet it’s more total. As I was saying to a client today though, it’s not that everything’s perfect, it’s not ego-gratifying – which is what we all secretly continue to hope that awakening will be. At the same time, there is no separation. What a strange life life is living!

I will write properly once I am more integrated. Please do call or text if you would like an appointment – I would love to see you 🙂

Love,

xDaisy

Grace

Hello 🙂

How are you? I am very well. This past week, as I was walking across Victoria station and thanking the universe for orchestrating my journey from East Sussex perfectly, I uttered audibly, “It’s Grace.” Then it hit me – but everything is. Even after awakening there can be this tendency to think of Grace as coming from ‘outside’. As the realisation dawned on me, I saw that it’s not like that at all. There is no outside. Everything is Grace. The intensification of oneness that followed stopped me in my tracks (sorry London commuters!). The truth is, Grace isn’t ‘given to us’ when we’re good, because Grace is the very substance of everything. It’s what we are and what everything is, pre-existing whether we think we are good or bad in any moment.

I will be in London giving sessions Thursday (tomorrow) – Saturday, for the last time before America. Please call or text to book. Otherwise please feel free to book a distance session at any other time. As a reminder, I will be away in America for further training in Vortex Healing from the 11th – 23rd October (that’s next week). NB I will have very limited digital access at that time.

If, like me, you want to see Amma in Europe at a few places and haven’t booked or arranged things yet, do so soon because places are getting booked up and prices are rising. I am only just getting onto it now.

The Adyashanti retreat in Surrey next August is now open for registration. It’s 7 nights – a special treat nowadays 🙂 I highly recommend this silent meditation retreat, which I feel is second only to being with Amma in person. Here is the link (do it now if you want to, because they always get overbooked):-

https://www.adyashanti.org/index.php?file=retreatsdetails1&eventid=1366

I leave you with this from Marlies Myoku Cocheret, whose recent email moved me deeply:-

Please take a moment to realize that everything can drop at any moment. This body, this mind, this or that feeling or sensation – not in your time, but Her time. Where do you want to put your attention when the moment comes…..which is every moment?!”

~ Marlies Myoku Cocheret

As Deep As Peace

Hello 🙂

You are as deep as peace. Yes, you. I feel I want to share this truth, following the online meditation group I just did with Marlies Myoku Cocheret. If you would like to participate in this opportunity for Silence, check the calendar section of her website. The groups are by donation each Wednesday, at 6pm UK time.

http://www.marliescocheret.com

Something else I learned this week from this wonderful offering is that there is no difference in the Beingness here with eyes open or eyes closed. This may sound obvious, and I ‘knew’ it before, but I actually experienced and perceived it today. That is the difference between truth and fiction. It’s an incredible thing that this Being that we all are, this one thing, is here all the time and never goes anywhere. We run to many places searching for safety, but that is only a relative safety, meanwhile true safety does exist in one place. The discovery of this true safety is the end of fear, so much so that fear can still arise – is allowed to be what it is – within this deep vastness of the One, which could also be called Beingness or truth. And no one has to do anything to get to this recognition. I personally really enjoy meditation and all kinds of spiritual practices, yet no one factually needs to do that to see what they are, right now, in this moment. All that is required is seeing reality as it is, without allowing the Self to be fettered by objects ‘outside’ or ‘inside’ (objects meaning everything you can think of).

I would also like to share how much I am enjoying Rupert Spira, whom I went to see at Alternatives on Monday. Apologies for not telling you sooner, I didn’t remember that I was going until the day. Here is his website for more details (for example, an upcoming retreat on the 3rd December):-

http://www.non-duality.rupertspira.com

This coming week, I will be in London Monday – Wednesday inclusive (i.e., 25th – 27th September). Please call or text to book. At other times distance sessions are available.

A reminder of Amma’s visit on the 17th – 18th November (Devi Bhava – 18th night). Please note that AMMA IS NOT IN LONDON this year. She is in Esher, Surrey, at Sandown Race Course. You will do well to book accommodation, as the venue is not very easily accessible from London. See the following site for details:-

Enjoy your week,

Sessions in London: Saturday – Tuesday

Hello 🙂

How are you? I am well, and enjoying country life here in East Sussex. Children are playing in the background, out in the sun, and I feel such peace in my heart. I really don’t have much to report or offer in words today, but wanted to let you know that I will be in London Saturday – Tuesday. The sessions I have left are on Monday and Tuesday, at a home in Camberwell where I am house-sitting. Distance sessions are available at any other time.

Please note that I will be continuing training in Vortex Healing® in America from the 11th – 23rd October, at which time I will not be offering sessions and will have limited digital access of any kind.

I leave you with this, which a friend just sent me from Adyashanti:-

You do not need to be perfect to be whole, you do not need to be worthy to be complete…

You are not here to be perfect. No one is perfect. You are here to love, and to love well.  ~ Adyashanti

Love,

xDaisy

London Sessions: Friday – Sunday

Hello 🙂

How are you? I am well and enjoying my newest temporary home in East Sussex. Because of the move I don’t have much to write today, but wanted to let you know I will be in London Fri – Sun, with Sunday being at the venue in Barbican. Please text or call to book.

Looking forward to seeing you soon,

Love,

Inevitable Truth, continues :-)

Hello 🙂

I want to let you know that I will be giving sessions in London Fri – Sun this week. Please call or text to book, or to arrange distance sessions on other days.

It occurred to me that I left out something important in my last email on the subject of dynamic truth and intuition. It is very important to be aware that issues within can cloud even intuition. When this happens, we could easily be hearing what we want to hear for the ego / fear / etc., rather than the real truth about a situation. Discerning between the two takes clarity of heart, stillness, practise and experience. It is no small feat. And yet, what to do? Go back to the old way – to the mind and the conditioned patterns – and is that even completely possible the more one wakes up? My sense is that, in the end, the intuitive way of living life takes over totally, until one is living life from and as truthfulness, without ever needing to turn back to the old conditioned ways.

Either way though, we end up in Truth, in Divine alignment. Because, in fact both conditioning, and even trauma, have a purpose – a function. That function is to carry us back into the Divinity within, even if that requires hemming us in so completely that we have no choice but to surrender. So, there’s no way out 🙂 🙂 🙂 Then if we want to, if we feel it, it’s really only a matter of aligning ourselves with truth at all times and in all situations. In the end, we get what we value. We really do get what we value most in our lives, in the end.

I would like to leave you with something I heard in the vicar’s speech at a funeral I attended recently. It moved me to tears. It sounds so simple, and yet I think it is one of the most profound things I have ever heard anyone say. He said,

“For every joy which passes, something beautiful remains.”

Love,

xDaisy

Inevitable Truth

Hello 🙂

Firstly, I am running a Bank Holiday Special on Monday: sessions are half-price, £45 (via Skype / call only). I am also offering regular in-person sessions in London Fri – Sun inclusive. Please call / text to book.

Now, on to the title of this email, which is something I have been contemplating recently – or rather, it has been contemplating me 🙂

Truth is like death: it’s going to happen, and is already in the process of happening.

When absolute Truth (which is still) moves dynamically, it becomes relative truth, and that may then appear (in the body) as what we call intuition, or instinct. That is why what we perceive in this manner – what ‘hits us’ strikingly, or what comes gently like a breeze – does play out in life. I find that to be one of the most amazing and beautiful things in the world.

What is sometimes missed in this process though, especially if we feel afraid of what we perceive, is that what has been seen takes place only according to Divine Timing. In other words, the event etc. happens exactly when it is best for it to happen for the whole, not just for our conditioning, or according to when we believe or fear it will happen. And a side effect of this is that when the event takes place, we have all the resources we need to deal with it. My sense is that everything which happens in our lives, happens when we are able to cope with it (though this part is a theory.) Please do write if you have a response to any of this, as I would love to hear it.

Enjoy your week 🙂

Love,

xDaisy

Hello 🙂

How are you? I am well 🙂 enjoying swimming in the sea, doing Acro Yoga in the countryside and giving distance sessions 🙂 I will be in London giving sessions Fri – Sun inclusive, so please call / text to book. Otherwise distance healing is always available 🙂

I finally have the time and space to reflect on the US Summer Tour with Amma, which I did half of this year, freestyling from San Ramon (in Northern California) to Dallas, Texas. I must say that this was the best time I have ever had with Amma… I had previously thought that my ‘Amma heydays’ had passed (during my first Summer tour in 2002, and on staff last year), but with Amma life just gets better! I think that’s almost like reflected light bouncing off the reality that the awakening embodiment evolution we are inside of can always go deeper. I want to share with you an excerpt from my diary. This part I wrote in San Ramon, stop 1 of 4:-

‘It’s another day in paradise here. And the Silence is palpable. It sings from the birds, dances across this lake, dawns within, shining outward like a sun.

Last night I had Darshan with Amma. I prayed in the queue several times, and the power of that prayer made me fall asleep, so that the helpers kept needing to wake me up. The unconsciousness in me wanted to drag me down and numb me out. My prayer was this: “I realise now that my longing for ‘x person’ is truly my longing for Divinity. Please remove any and everything within which says otherwise, believes otherwise, feels otherwise and is otherwise.”

When it came to the person in front of me, Amma did something she had never done in the 16 years I have been with her. As that person’s Darshan was ending – before, even – Amma reached out her hand and took mine. She then literally pulled me into her lap. It was as if she was saying, “Take my hand – I will show you how to do this.” And even deeper than that, I felt a direct pulling into Divinity. I let go in her arms. She had heard my silent prayer and answered it.’

This part I wrote after my final stop in Texas, during a layover in Calgary, Canada:-

‘Although what I’ve learned is way beyond words, I’m going to attempt to sum it up.

1) I experience a Love now that is a Love beyond love… It is deeper and clearer than any other love in my life. And everything, everything, can be done through this Love. Through and as this Love. I don’t have to go into analysing, into ‘hard truth’ or into separation of any kind. Those who told me to love someone less (basically) were never right, and deep down I knew that they weren’t. That way was wrong for me – I needed something higher. And that’s what Amma has revealed to me on this tour. From this True Love, everything can be accomplished. All barriers can melt. All pain can be healed, and all fear. Being honest and clear about what I really love, which is also what I really want, allows everything… I’m no longer confused – I see what’s real. And it’s so, so beautiful…

2) Amma is, and has always been, my teacher. She reveals everything to me, in time. It’s a flow…

3) Slow down. Slow down. Slow down.

4) Go beyond. When I get caught in the victim, in misery, in despair – simply go beyond. There is literally no value in wallowing there. Perhaps do some seva, do sadhana, do sports – it could be anything really. But dwelling doesn’t help, and it isn’t loving or valuable.’

It’s interesting to re-read these expressions and to see how differently things have played out back here at home than I thought they would at that time. It’s been way more challenging than I could have expected. The direct presence of a True Master is a precious thing. Back in ‘the world’ I find it harder to live out what I know. On one hand it is happening anyway, because it is the truth. But worldly life is far more messy and gritty than we bargain for when we are with the master. If we don’t follow through on what we know to be true though, on that deep discovery (or perhaps recovery is a better word), then the time on ‘retreat’ was essentially of little value. It is a high challenge to be what we really are in the world rather than in the ashram / monastery. It is not the path for everyone, yet it is my path, and I think for many of you also.

In case you don’t have these, here are the dates for Amma’s Europe Tour:-

Enjoy your week 🙂

Wed – Fri: Sessions in London

Hello 🙂

 

I will make this quick, since internet problems are persistent and ongoing (hence the seemingly last minute nature of this communication.) Citydwellers cannot imagine! 😉

 

Would you like a session? If so, I will be in London Wed – Fri, or there is the option of distance sessions on other days. Please call or text, due to internet fiasco: 07931 536 700.

 

My friend showed me this just now, and I thought how perfect it is to pass on to you:-

 

“Make no mistake about it – enlightenment is a destructive process. It has nothing to do with becoming better or being happier. Enlightenment is the crumbling away of untruth. It’s seeing through the facade of pretence. It’s the complete eradication of everything we imagined to be true.”

 

  ~ Adyashanti, from ‘The End of Your World’

 

Looking forward to seeing you soon,

Love,

Outside of Mind

Hello 🙂

How are you?

I would like to share a poem I wrote this morning after sadhana, and inspired ever more by this deep practice (of the 1000 Names and the IAM technique from Amma).

What a violent thing

To bring mind in here!

To this sacred place,

This holy Silence.

 

Outside of mind

Lies all things,

And all non-things.

Your cascading lights

Cannot fool me anymore,

For I have found something

Here, exquisite.

 

In these long halls

Of Silence upon Silence,

I meet the innermost –

The maker –

The original Spark.

 

Yet She is so Silent…

So nothing,

And so everything.

 

No song-and-dance fanfare.

Simply Silence gazing,

Just gazing.

She sees it all –

Sips it all in,

And rests.

 

It is some miracle that this poem came out from me, considering that I am still in that heartbreak which I wrote to you about in February. Really it has been going on since January. The blood and the guts of this particular heartbreak are hellish. But I am ever grateful to my friends for their support, and similarly to Amma, Adyashanti, Vortex Healing and my healers. What to do? We are all in the same boat going down the stream, playing out our karma. Yet, paradoxically, this is happening right in the middle of an all-encompassing awakening embodiment evolution.

My friend Alexandra Stone was kind enough to interview me for her website, please have a look:-

http://www.alexandrastone.studio/blog/

And finally, I want to thank those of you who have been giving me such rich and powerful feedback on the sessions. When you are self-employed, the only way you really know you are doing a good job is when clients or teachers tell you so. My heartfelt thanks for bringing smiles and tears of joy to me 🙂

I have a couple of spaces left in London Sat & Sun. Also, let me know if Wed – Fri might suit you (as that is possibly when I will next be in London). In the meantime, please contact me for distance healing.

Much Love and gratitude,

xDaisy
