***The Fullness of the Moon***

Hello 🙂

As I reminded people on FB – don’t panic, it’s simply Full Moon today! The energies I could feel in the group consciousness during my IAM meditation this morning were intense: dense and sort-of conflicted. That’s when I remembered the moon. It really does have an effect. Actually, the more you dance your natural dance into what you are, the more sensitive you are to these things. And yet the less they actually pull you in. It’s interesting.

I also wanted to remind you of when I will be away. It’s less than 2 weeks now to my departure! It will fly by though, and I will be back with you before you know it 🙂 I will be on tour with Amma in America from the 3rd June – 16th July.

I was touched this week by a rather beautiful cat, who decided to help me during a healing session with a client. It was towards the end of the healing and I could feel a shift coming within my own solar plexus. Although this is often the manner in which my system senses (sees psychically), I was unsure whether it was my own conditioning or the client’s at that point. But I was guided to begin the catch up phase of the healing. As I placed my hands on the client, she convulsed several times in a release from her solar plexus. That answered my query 🙂 Then the cat jumped up and straight onto her solar plexus. He proceeded to do that ultra-cute thing cats do with their feet – padding them up and down on the client’s stomach, for quite some time. I was mesmerised by the cat’s energy and his care, and by the whole unfolding situation.

I would like to write more, but am wanting my bed after a deep Adyashanti transmission today via video (I am part of an Adya group here in London), followed by a profound healing session I just gave. I am feeling blessed to have this job and this life…

Sweet dreams,

Love,

Pilgrimage to Paradise

Hello sunshine lovers, energy enthusiasts and helpers of mankind,

My title refers to an old trance tune on Sourmash records, which was helpful in bringing me towards spirit in my teenage years. In a deeper way, I am referring to what I am about to do in June: I am very excited – and honoured – to have been given a staff position on Amma’s US tour! I will be volunteering in the clothing boutique. It’s funny because I was thinking of ways I might get into the feminine and embody that more, and then I got given this position 🙂 Feel free to ask me any questions you may have about what I will be doing or what the tour involves.

Are any of you going to be there, or thinking of going to a couple of stops? Here are the stops in full:-

I will be away from the 3rd June to the 16th July without internet or phone access, so please do get all your sessions in before then.

I have been re-doing the Art of Meditation with Adyashanti this week and wanted to share some of the wisdom with you. Adya discusses the fact that awakening is not just an initial moment in which the I falls away, but it is also an ongoing unfolding. And for that part, meditation is crucial. In this sense, he disagrees with non-dual teachings – and I think rightly so – which tend to discourage practice (albeit covertly). Even if it is not said outright, the implication in many non-dual teachings is that practice is not all that important. Yet I simply haven’t met anyone who is deeply embodied as their true nature who has not engaged deeply in ongoing practices. So from my point of view, I wholeheartedly agree with Adyashanti on this important and often perplexing point. Please do offer your experiences with this, as I would be interested in them.

Bye for now, and do call or contact me before the 3rd June,

Love,

Amma Documentary and other news

Hello 🙂

I hope you are out enjoying the sunshine 🙂 I want to share this documentary about Amma by Shekar Kapur. It’s not often that you get to hear Amma talking for long, so a real treat. It may give you goosebumps!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gRxtKANEfwc&feature=youtu.be

Please do make the most of sessions now, as I will be on tour with her from the 3rd June for 6 weeks, as I mentioned. I will update you with more exact details when they are published. I will not be able to give healing during this time because I will be on staff and without internet connection.

I have felt so inspired by sessions with you recently…I feel I have the best job in the world 🙂 I have come to see that creativity is often channelled, as a result of a session with one of you (an author). Actually Amma talks about this in a deeper way in the documentary! In the session, I saw that this person was channelling her books from the astral realm, where beings there assist her. This is similar to what Ric Weinman has said about J.K. Rowling: that she dreams the Harry Potter stories (influenced by a ‘real’ place in a different realm – see Quinstel below) and then writes them out in her waking state. It was amazing the detail I was able to see with this client in terms of sensing, and I believe that was in part due to her creative openness connecting with mine, because of what creativity gives us all access to. I wanted to take her to Quinstel directly (a kind of Divine university we access via Vortex class transmissions) and it seemed to be going well, but then we got to a door that was locked. I realised it was because she needed the transmission from a Vortex class to gain the key to the lock. Fascinating work 🙂 There have been many other wonderful sessions, but I won’t go on 😉

Here is the link for Mukti’s events (Adyashanti’s wife), in England in August, which it’s best to book in advance:-

You can still get on the waiting list for the silent retreat in England with Adyashanti here:-

I received the grace to be invited to satsang with Pamela Wilson on Friday, last minute. I found it very powerful. At the end, I couldn’t resist suddenly hugging her and she said a very sweet thing to me: “I enjoyed your presence. Silent and full”. So there you go: when you’re deliberating about sitting in the front row at these things – do it! Here is her site. She is back in London in August:-

See you soon,

This Love

Hello 🙂

This is a new day,

This is a brand new day!

Your crimson tide washes over my heart,

This Love,

This Love…

I wish I could more accurately translate to you the sense of doing the 1000 Names this morning. It leaves a perfume, a scent, of such depth and bliss…and ultimately pure non-separation, oneness. If you are not doing a regular practice, I highly recommend starting today. Even if you only do a 15 minute meditation in the morning or at night, you will find that over time you begin to see clearly again, the way you used to as a child. To see things AS THEY ARE. What a huge privilege…! In fact, Amma has said:-

I didn’t come to teach anyone anything. I came to remind you of a song you once knew, but have since forgotten  ~ Amma

It’s quite a statement coming from an avatar, the one kind of being who actually can truly teach, directly, and with acute accuracy. So we can see then, that this enlightenment game is really not about teachers or teachings. It’s about something else entirely… I would dearly love to hear your thoughts on what it is about, so please write to me about this 🙂 Also, please do join me on Facebook. Search for Daisy Nokes. I know I went through a privacy period, but that is over now.

How did you fair over Shivaratri on Monday, followed by the solar eclipse and Picses supermoon on Tues and Wed? Yes, that much did happen! The Shiva day, from my point of view, is about stillness manifesting into creation (sometimes in a variety of ways 😉 and the solar eclipse creates a deep purging of old pain, so that new projects can blossom. The supermoon in Picses represents the unconscious of humanity, the collective unconscious, what is being denied, coming out and releasing. I would love to hear any stories you have about Mon, Tues and Wed 🙂

If you feel you would like to join in with weekly coming-togethers of like hearted souls, just to remind you that I am going to Villa Devi in London every week to sing and chant and be with Amma devotees. It is a deeply transformative and amazing way to deepen your practices or path and to gain the sense of community. Let me know if you would like to be put on their mailing list.

Some of the results I have been getting through working with the U-AP level of Vortex Healing are remarkable. A client rang me to say that she “couldn’t feel anything” and she was concerned that she was emotionally disconnected. But when I looked into her system I could see that the work we had done together was so transformative that she had lost an entire ‘place’ or position in consciousness from which she had been living her life up until now. That is the power of this healing art combined with the way I work with Amma. I always wanted something which could actually remove issues, not just make the prison more comfortable, but actually deconstruct the prison piece by piece. Thank goodness I found Amma and Vortex Healing and that I am able to share that deconstruction with you, in you. This is the deepest gift I have ever been given.

I also facilitated a session this week in which I worked on the core position underlying back pain that my client had had for over 8 years, and with which she had been working in a variety of very helpful ways. Yet somehow the pain remained. Immeditately after the session she was able to flex her lower back again and the pain was barely noticeable! She also remarked that her voice had changed. This is something wonderful which can happen after a session, as if the person is speaking from a different place and without something ‘in the way’, that something being the issue worked on.

There was also a beautiful moment when I was doing some awakening coaching with a client and I asked her (because she was feeling a lack of clarity) what clarity meant to her. She replied simply, “Knowing my Truth and moving towards it”. I knew immediately that it was a pivotal moment for this person, because once you speak so authentically out loud the Divine hears (and you yourself hear) that and the transformation of life truly begins anew.

Ok that’s all for now. A bit of a long one – thank you for bearing with me 🙂 I feel very over-excited!

Love to you, beautiful blessed being,

Daisy

Group Vortex Healing

Hello,

How are you this rather cold day? On Sunday I was given the opportunity to facilitate a group healing on Leila Sadeghee’s Yoga Immersion here in London. It went very well indeed and I was thrilled about it! Leila commented that it felt to her like receiving an individual session, which is encouraging considering that there were around 20 people receiving the work. A lot of information came through also for people individually afterwards when they approached me with questions and comments about their experiences. All in all, it was wonderful and something I would like to continue with in the future. It was the first time since Dad died 5 years ago that I have facilitated a group and it feels good to be back in the groove of that. I would like to know if you would be interested in receiving group healing, either at a distance or in person at the venue in London EC1?

I want to share a personal healing miracle which happened last week. As some of you know, my mother and I have a challenging relationship and have had for as long as I can remember. This culminated in an argument one night recently, revolving around her disapproval of my life and my awakening path, including her speaking against Amma, which was the biggest trigger for me. The next day, I attended an Amma satsang and dedicated the sadhanas there to healing this fraught relationship. I did this again during an additional satsang that week. I also wrote a loving email to Mum, apologising for what I had said in the argument. Although Mum did not apologise or engage, something in her email response made my sensing ears prick up. She said she had had a ‘car prang’ that week, nothing serious but she was a little shaken by it. In November last year, I had a clear premonition that she would die in a head on collision with another car. I had had glimpses of this a couple of times before, but had put it down to fear in my own system. However, the premonition in November was so clear that I decided to do healing on it and I also told Mum. She did not react well, she was angry, but I felt it was the right thing to do to warn her so that her awareness might be present should the situation arise. On hearing of the recent car prang, I had the feeling that perhaps it was the dissolution of her karma by the Divine, which I have heard that Amma is capable of doing. I asked my healer this and, as we discussed it, it became clear to both of us that that was indeed the case. Of course we could both be wrong, only time will tell, but if this is true then it is a healing miracle… If this is true, then it puts a whole new light on the deeper reason for the falling out Mum and I had, and on the sheer power of the satsangs, and of Divine intervention. I personally feel blown away by this experience…

Something else which came to me this week and I wanted to share with you is that, if you want awakening in this lifetime you have to really want it, naturally, and you need to truly engage with your life and your path (dharma). None of this hiding out in non-dual getaways will do it – it doesn’t work. I tried it for years, and I see a lot of people trying to do it that way, but what happens is you get stuck and believe you are ‘there’, even if that means ‘nowhere’ (which, if you look at the ego, is actually still trying to get somewhere). Many of the so-called teachers of non-duality etc. in London and around the world are not where they think they are in terms of awakening and embodiment (I am not talking about Tony Parsons here). It is not very difficult to see this if you sense directly into their consciousness. Another way is to look at how they avoid life or their conditioning, or at how they treat others and behave. Often such ‘teachers’ are not really embodying the Truth that they have glimpsed or awoken to. That means that as a student / participant they can’t really help you. Looking at someone like Adyashanti for example, it is clear and evident that the embodiment there is very real and very deep. That is rare, in reality.

Just to remind you that, as I explained in my last newsletter, I have received guidance from the Divine on my price per session, which is now £90 for 1 & 1/2 hours.

Wishing you well,

Love,

Daisy

Mother Meera in London + other news

Hello 🙂

Is anyone seeing Mother Meera in London at the moment? I went last night and am still feelings the effects 🙂 One can feel when she is about to enter the hall because a deep silence falls through the consciousness of the room. As I sat with friends there in great silence, the meditation was totally natural…and this is the opportunity presented with this Master. I was not trying to do anything or control anything. I was simply sitting. One realises in this way, what true Stillness is. Because the mind can be talking, or not, one can be feeling, or not, and still awareness is fully present and remaining…simple and complete within itself. Then one knows “I am that”, without words, or ego, or anything at all. During the darshan, I noticed that I did not feel any separation from Mother Meera as I approached her and no sense that she was ‘above’ etc. (a big fixation in my conditioning). When I looked into her eyes there was still some remaining ego consciousness, and as I relaxed that fell away and there was only freedom…

It is easier once one has done the various Veil classes in Vortex Healing or woken up on one’s own / via another tradition or modality. But even if one has had only glimpses of freedom, any glimpse is the entirety. Either way, one sees at a certain point in spiritual maturity, that there is no need to leave that awareness for any reason. I don’t mean cling onto it, I just mean there is no need to go back into business with life after that: ‘I’ Vs the world etc. Because one knows that there is really no self, no I, that is separate from life itself.

Something very interesting which Ric (Vortex founder) wrote to us about, is that issues often come in pairs: for example, the ‘victim’ will also have the ‘victimiser’. One may well only be identified with one of these, but the other ‘silent partner’ will hold the primary position in place. So it is a good idea to work on both. I don’t want to overload you though! Each and every session is a deep deep dip into the freedom that you are, and a radical dissolving of what you are not.

I have received new guidance from the Divine on my price per session: this is now £90 for 1 & 1/2 hours.

As I was sitting in Costa waiting for friends before Mother Meera yesterday, it occurred to me that there is another and equal intuitive way of being to the process I described last week. Sometimes, ‘tuning in’ – especially when it is really checking (which comes from fear) – is not the best way. Intuition is natural, arising without the me getting involved. Upon perceiving this, I began to wonder what intuition was naturally speaking to me, regarding a particular situation in my life without tuning in – simply the natural, nature way…? What I found was, I got the same response as when I did it the other way. Sometimes, it is that one of these ways is better for one person and the other for the next person, and sometimes each way will be helpful for the same person but at different times. The thing about it is, you need to be clear enough in terms of having had some glimpse at least of freedom (awakeness), so that you are not coming entirely from the me sense, the ego, when attempting to follow your intuition. Practise is the best way and simply the living of life. I don’t usually recommend going to psychics because many of them are less clear than you are in their sensing of your situation, and it also tends to create dependency rather than freedom and empowerment. If you really trust a person’s intuition then it may be wise to follow what they recommend, but that trust needs to be really genuine, which could happen if you can naturally sense the integrity and awareness in that person’s system.

That’s all for now. I hope things are deepening for you,

Love,

Daisy

Trust YourSelf, Trust the Deeper Intuition

Hello,

How are you? I hope this email finds you well.

Is anyone doing The Art of Meditation with Adyashanti at the moment? It is going beautifully I must say.

It has taken me a while to write this time due to a deep pull into Embodiment. Part of this draw (which looks human and messy by the way, not a ‘nice’ spiritualised ideal) has revealed the realisation that I will not be continuing with psychotherapy. Although I love the way in which my rigorous training moves now in my healing work with you, and although I will be continuing with Equine Assisted Therapy which is pure joy, working as a therapist is not for me.

I went through a natural process to get to this life changing conclusion, which I want to share with you, so that you can be empowered by it in your own choice making processes. As you know, there are conditionings in us which are so powerful that they can take years to work through and which dictate much of our lives as they are now. So, how do we become clear in the midst of all that sticky, forceful and destructive stuff when making an important decision? This is where intuition goes from being a ‘nice-to-have’ add-on that makes life more interesting, to being the place from which you live your life, simply because it is the expressive aspect of Truth itself.

To share some of my process with this: I had become convinced that I had to do an MA in psychotherapy and believed that this movement was coming from Truth itself. So I set about visiting universities and making applications etc. Before sleeping one night, I did the 300 Names (an Amma practice) in bed, as I sometimes do. At 5 30am I woke up bolt upright, with the sudden sense “What am I doing? I am not doing an MA!” At the time I decided to shelve this, thinking I couldn’t be clear in the space I was in at that moment. In the morning, I went to the forest (Highgate Woods) and sat for many hours in deep contemplation and meditation about the MA. I repeated this in my bedroom a couple more times in the proceeding days. Each time, I received the same clear answers. The key was that I had to wait…..

Here is my suggested way:-

First, contact Truth within very deeply and stay there (I suggest meditation for this). Then ask a very specific question towards whatever you sense as that Divine (Truth) within, whether that be Amma, true Self, a deity etc. And then, wait……. Don’t go for that reflex which wants to grab your attention and is pulling at you. The Truth never needs to pull, and doesn’t actually move at all. Listen, sense and be open for what doesn’t move. Let the true answer reveal itself in that place, in it’s own time and by it’s own terms. Adyashanti has called this “the knowing which arises from not knowing”. Patience, humility and courage are important here. In this way, you touch what is you and simultaneously beyond you. It is the impersonal becoming the personal, and is also free from both of these definitive boxes.

Another observation, which may be of use to those of you who experienced trauma of any kind in your infancy and early years, is that what is called dissociation in psychotherapy is on the other levels of us a deep energetic twist in the heart. It is where the child has twisted to get away from something unbearable (abandonment, violence, sexual invasion or any other kind of abuse trauma). This twist then ripples into the pericardium muscle fascia and pulls on the nerves in the neck, sometimes causing burning and pain, and also often interferes with the ears and hearing. So problems can be present in any or all of these areas, though the root is emotional-karmic-genetic. Once I had deepened into the emotional pain behind the dissociative patterning in me one day (triggered by the upcoming ending after 3 years with my therapist), and cried a lot, I could actually hear far more clearly the next day and my neck was totally relaxed and opened. Auspiciously, I happened to have a cranial sacral session booked with a friend that day, which further helped 🙂

Last but not least, do you or anyone you know want to go on a transformational yoga retreat? If so, I can highly recommend one here: http://www.thepracticesoffreedomandwellbeing.com

Bye for now,

Love,

Daisy

The Vortex Healing Way of Sensing / Psychic Perception

Hello 🙂

This weekend and last week I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to re-take the Vortex Healing classes Sensing and Advanced Sensing, with Anthony Gorman. I want to share with you some of what I discovered, in order to illustrate what you may be able to experience through taking classes in this amazing healing art, and also to share some of my journey since I am the person in service to your unfoldment when you have sessions with me.

Here is what I wrote in my notes on day 1 of Advanced Sensing:-

It’s only ever a question of awareness…….. There is no need to leave Truth, ever, full stop. In that sense, it is a choice. Do I want to be what I am, do I want to be as reality is – what reality is? Or do I want to be in illusion, trying to make things better (or worse), trying to get better, become something else, something different, something new? Is there something different, something new, other than this awake alive free fall that remains, despite all our attempts to distort and prevent it (because of our conditioning)?

It gives credence to Anthony’s reminder to us that this new and updated class is really assisting a very deep embodiment of whatever level of awakening has happened in each student. Also, and importantly, the Vortex Healing way of sensing is to sense from and as Awareness itself. This makes it different from most other kinds of healing modalities and sensing methods etc., which are often in reality accessing collected memory, on many different levels. In one way, that common technique is fine because one sees the story of a situation. But in another way, it could be seen as feeding the ego because it is not sensing the Truth of the situation, which would actually create more growth for the receiver.

Put in another way, Vortex Healing sensing is not about improving our ability to have experiences and see more ‘things’ – angels etc. It’s about awakeness waking up to itself in this moment, and from that the truth of the situation has space to arise.

Our looking for Sensing/Divinity/Love etc. makes us blind, because we’re coming from a perspective that is distorted by lack etc. – by deep conditioning. This new way is really about sensing without looking for anything. Sensing is on a need-to-know basis. We don’t sense what we don’t need to know. That’s why we often can’t see/get things we ‘want’, because that want point of view is coming from lack, or some other conditioning. We sense what we need to sense in that moment. As frustrating and sometimes terrifying as that is for the ego, that’s how it is.

To assist your own sensing ability, take what happened to me during lunch on the one-day Sensing class. This is an example of how simple all this really is and how helpful it can be:-

I was sitting in a busy restaurant with friends, trying to decide what to eat from the menu. My mind was telling me to have one dish and my body another. Usually, my story was that I should go with my body. But this time something else happened. When the waiter came, I ordered a different dish entirely, having no idea where this came from. In fact, I thought it was a dish I wouldn’t like, yet something – which wasn’t me – wanted to have it. So I went with that. The dish turned out to be so nourishing for my body and much better than anything the apparent me could have chosen. I also enjoyed it way more than I could have imagined. It was a laksa soup by the way, with chicken and coconut 😉

In this way, when you go with the Truth in any moment, because you have got to a point where you can feel that, the results are so much more deeply satisfying than anything your imagination could conjure up to tempt you with.

Are you aware that there is an Adyashanti online course starting very soon? It is called ‘The Art of Meditation’ and I am taking it, as are some of you I hear. I highly recommend these courses, even if (and perhaps especially if) you have never met Adya in person. Here is the link:-

Goodbye for now,

Love,

Daisy

Longing for the Divine

Hello,

How are you? I hope this correspondence finds you well. I want to share with you a poem I wrote some time ago about longing for the Divine. Listening to Adyashanti on the bus just now reminded me of it.

Oh what of this mystery?

I turn in the night,

Towards Love, towards You.

Here without motion,

Bathed in such Light.

You, who I can never have

And who never leaves.

Trails of longing remain,

Like vines

Cut off at the root.

Can I speak to You

Without opposition,

Without two?

Your gentle ears listen

Without existing.

A secret Life

Comes in the night.

I have begun attending satsang every week at Villa Devi in Brockley, South London, on Thursday nights. This is bringing oneness more deeply into my living life and I wanted to invite any of you who would be interested in coming. We sing bhajans, chant the Guru Stotra (like the 1000 Names) and perform other kinds of prayers to Amma. Contact me if you would like the details.

If you have not yet done so but would like to, you can sign up to have Mother Meera’s darshan here in London in February:-

http://mothermeera.org.uk/

Also, if you have not yet signed up but would like to, there is a waiting list for Adyashanti’s retreat this August. I recommend getting onto it asap if you want the chance of a lifetime to be on retreat in silence and with a truly gifted awakened guide:-

https://www.adyashanti.org/index.php?file=retreatsdetails&eventid=1221

Last but not least I would like to share something Amma once said:-

“I haven’t come to teach anyone anything. I have come to remind you of a song you once knew, but have since forgotten” – Amma

She utters such nectar with every breath…I thank the day I met this person. The only person I can call teacher and mean it.

I hope you are enjoying your week,

Love,

Daisy

The Significance of Following Your Intuition

Hello,

Happy New Year 🙂

I want to talk about something while I am in this ‘place’ as it were. Do you know how it is when you follow your intuition, including speaking that, even though it takes so much courage and it goes against your conditioned reflexes?

When I do this, as I did today, it is as if there is an atmosphere which fills the whole room or space…and the truth leaves a wake, waves which carry on. Yet everything is totally still, silent in its essence, and real. It is as if I am touching the depth of life itself, right here in my bedroom. Nothing and everything exists within this, and there is no ‘outside’ or ‘inside’. Simultaneously, my body quivers with the felt sense of oneness – like rushes down my legs and down through my crown. Perhaps this is where the absolute and the humanness meet?

To give the ‘story’ part of this, I would have to share something which I know the person involved would not want me to share. It is not one of you, but it feels wrong to detail this. Sorry to be vague.

On a different note, you will be pleased to hear that I received this from Ric recently:-

“This morning there was an upgrade to the U-AP and a major upgrade to the Protocol. My sense is that you will be able, when working through the Protocol for issues, to move at least twice as much in the same time frame, and deeper. Happy New Year!” (Ric Weinman)

The difference is palpable, so do get in contact if you would like to experience it. That’s all for now, as I can’t write more from this silence at the moment. I look forward to hearing from you though 🙂

Love,

Daisy

To surrender to the Divine is to not know

Hello,

I hope you are all well in the run-up to Christmas. Christmas is often a difficult time for people, as well as a time of joy, and I wanted to acknowledge that because I don’t think it gets much press (for obvious reasons). I am available over this period for support. The only days I will not be available are 24th Dec – 26th Dec and the 31st Dec – 1st Jan.

On writing this newsletter, I have just finished my practices: the 1000 Names followed by the IAM Technique (please ask for more details if you wish). The sense of stillness, peace and unconditional Love is immense… I cannot recommend these highly enough. The discipline of any practice, though, done with openness of heart and regularity, brings you back to You. In the wintertime particularly, there exists this opportunity to flow into ourselves, deep within, to the Source, to the Light within darkness – the great deep midnight Light of awakeness.

I saw the most wonderful film last week, which you can find on Netflix. It is called ‘Awake’ and it documents the life of Paramahamsa Yogananda. The whole film is an amazing journey, and there was one part specifically which made a deep impression on me. It was when Yogananda was giving a speech in New York in the 1920s (around 15mins into the film) and he spoke about the centre of us being the spine; if you go in there, he said, “…you meet the Maker”. On hearing him speak these words, I spontaneously burst into tears and was pulled deep into my spine and into what he was speaking of, through the vehicle of emotional pain. I cried and cried and felt all this conditioning rush up my spine and out through my crown, while my sense-awareness naturally remained within the spine / gut area, expanding all the while, like a dissolution as Oneness. That was my experience of this great piece of filmmaking. If you watch it, I would love to hear about it.

I have been particularly struck by the sessions we have been doing together of late, and would like to share some of what you have said about them. After a session which cleared the issue of sorrow in one go, the receiver reported that she experienced the issue as being completely gone: she said that when she looked inside to find that place which had been there before, “there was nothing there – it was empty”. This is the joy of Vortex Healing®. It is amazing that it is able to get to issues deeply enough as to actually revive this natural experience. This doesn’t often happen in one session, but in this case it did.

In another session, I learned so much from my client. After talking awhile post-treatment, she said these simple yet profound words: “To surrender to the Divine is to not know”. It struck me right to my heart. Not only was it true for her, but it also pertained to current challenges in my own life. I felt these words coming from her real Self – not from something she had heard or rehearsed, but from that genuine place when innocence lives and thrives.

I have also had a few experiences where something takes over during a healing and I am no longer facilitating the healing at all – Divinity is simply pouring through as the natural expression of Life itself, faced with what needs to be transformed. That is something of deep personal significance to me, so I wanted to share it.

I also want to thank you for the deep compliments you have paid me in these past weeks. I won’t share what was said here, because it feels wrong, but you know who you are – thank you 🙂 I am not good at receiving these, but that doesn’t mean I don’t, and it is so very important for me to hear the good stuff, as well as the constructive criticisms you may have.

As always, these are just a few of the stories that have happened, and every single healing session is beautiful and deeply important.

Wishing you Love, Truth, whole-beingness,

Daisy

To consciousness – ahoy!

Hello 🙂

First of all I want to tell you about the IAM course on Saturday, London N8. This is Amma’s meditation technique, which she invented whilst walking around the ashram at 3am with no-one around. She went down to the beach and the steps came to her in a vision. I highly recommend training in this, because of the way in which it connects you to the Divine. It feels as if the Divine is pouring through your body. I found it particularly useful when I worked in Advertising, because I would feel kind-of protected all day in the office, after doing it in the morning. I will be there, brushing up my skills:-

http://amma.org.uk/iam.htm

There is a party of my friends going to Calais to give aid to refugees there. The dawning of this intention is something I was present for at a recent Amma satsang in Hove, and it was very beautiful indeed. I get goose bumps just remembering it… The selflessness of people never ceases to move and hearten me. You can contribute to the buying of blankets, boots, tents etc. for the homeless migrants by donating via PayPal using this email: calaiswintersupplies@gmail.com. Super easy and feels so good 🙂 Or if you would like to join them on the trip, please contact me by phone. They leave on the 14th Dec for a couple of days.

Regarding sessions with the U-AP, what I have learned is that using this new energy and consciousness does so much more than even the excellent ‘Protocol’. It’s the way it allows the receiver to fall into the arms of the Divine which makes it so unique. Here is what one of you emailed after session 2:-

“I had come to accept that working through trauma with clients as a psychotherapist, simply entailed the personal processing of other people’s unconscious within my own body as just par for the course, an inevitability of ‘depth’ work. I now see that this does not necessarily need to be so dense. That there is a way of positioning in relation to the Divine where this process can be lighter… After your healing yesterday I honestly am astounded at the effect. I had almost stopped believing that energy healing can be this powerful… It is to consciousness now that I feel so awake and alive… The work you have done on me in 2 sessions has awestruck me…the healing has blown my mind and inspired in me the awakening of connection and the primal energetic love and passion of existence.”

I learned from a friend this week and wanted to share with you, that when you are in difficulty – first, give it to God. This first and most important step is often missed in our rush to try to control the situation. Along similar lines, it occurred to me during a session this week, that when you pray, the prayer gets answered in the sense that God hears what it is that you are REALLY asking for. This is not to say that it isn’t important what you pray for, and more importantly the attitude with which you pray, simply that what we really need is often being distorted by the ego.

And lastly, but not leastly, the film ‘Un + Une’ by Claude Lelouche, which was by his own admission in the Paris program really a way to make a film about Amma, was released in France yesterday 🙂 If anyone hears of it being shown here in London, please do let me know. Here is a link for more info:-

Shadows and Light (I think Joni Mitchell had it there)

Hello,

“Every picture has it shadows

And it has some source of light,

Blindness, blindness, and sight…”

                 

                                                 Joni Mitchell

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ty_7d-qwYxs

So, Paris……. What a shock. I never usually watch the news, but when I did on Saturday morning I could only cry and curl up in pain about it all. In the end I had to take action, so I decided to do a healing on the situation, which I mentioned on the Vortex FB group. I felt happy seeing so many fellow healers join in and respond, rather than react, to what had happened. The attacks made me reflect on how much I love this city, London; it’s freedoms, tastes, smells, colours and sexualities, music, dirt and aliveness everywhere. I am in love with the city in which I was born, and to think of it being hit with such a wave of violence as Paris was, is horrifying. What I also want to acknowledge is how much it has brought to the surface fears and pain in me and in everyone I have treated or interacted with this week. If you want to express anything about it, please feel free to write to me or call.

I hope those of you who visited Amma in London enjoyed yourselves 🙂 I know I did. I feel so very fortunate to have been touched in this way by her, in a way that is complete and whole. I especially liked part of her speech, in which she said, “It is what we give, not what we receive, which determines the value of our life”. Why is it that she can say the simplest of things, but it can cut all the way through, like the Truth itself?

I have a healing story to share with you. I treated a man who was in another country a long way away. He is the father of a client, fairly resistant to healing and from a generation where perhaps the idea of healing is less palatable. He had had cataract surgery recently and reached out for help when he was unable to see without double vision at long distances. The next day, less than 24 hours after the session, I received this text from my client quoting her father: “I am 🙂 My vision is now clearer up to 7 or 8 feet compared with yesterday”. I consider this quite something when you think that this was achieved in just one session using the U-AP, and on someone at a distance who was asleep at the time (plus essentially a non-believer).

A little update: the availability of the wonderful new venue I am working from in EC1, is Tues 6pm – 9pm and Wed 10am – 5pm. So please do book for in-person healing.

Finally, some Vortex trivia for you. During the Earthshift class, I asked Ric how many Vortex students there are worldwide. He said about 5000. Our little pot is growing 😉

Ok, goodbye for now. I hope you enjoy your weekend,

Love,

Daisy

The Call of the Heart

Hello,

Happy Guy Fawkes Day 🙂 I’m sure many of you are more focussed on Amma’s upcoming visit to London, beginning on Tuesday. For those of you who are wavering about whether to be with her or not, I want to tell you a story.

A friend and fellow devotee from Poland was staying with me and was booked onto the Eurostar to be with Amma the following day. I had no plans to be with Amma in Paris. That evening, we decided to buy ice cream from the shop and, outside, my friend turned and looked at me. It was much like any other moment, except that I felt Amma pour through her and into my heart. Then she said, “I can feel Her already”, and I replied, “Yes, so can I…”. As I crossed the threshold of the shop, I realised somehow that I was going to Paris the next day with her. It was 10 30pm; it seemed impossible. But when we got in, the picture of Amma on my altar seemed to flash with light. I sat with it all for a while, wondering “What is life asking of me regarding Paris?” (a tip gathered from Adyashanti). Immediately, I had a vision of myself in the hall at the Paris programme. The more I sat, the clearer the direction to go in became. I went online (it was now 11 30pm) and managed to find a very reasonable last minute deal. I rearranged my life, and we left at 5am the next morning.

It really is like this sometimes… Literally the calling of the heart from the Divine; direct, and beyond doubt. Here is an excerpt from my diary about what happened when I got there:

“I sat down on the stage and tried to see Amma. Swamiji and some media people were obscuring the view, but I was enjoying their cheerful exchange. Then, I saw Her from behind. Suddenly I felt a rush through my entire body and then all there was was stillness. My mind stopped. I closed my eyes and a vastness opened…there was no separation that I could feel at all. This stunning openness……. Eventually, thoughts returned. But there were so few and they felt as if they were disembodied voices, mouths talking to one another lower down in my body. I felt no identification with them. It was amazing though, to see how they build their web – thought by thought by thought, until we feel consumed. Then, I listened to one of them and I was drawn into a long and convincing story about my future: I “knew”…”It all makes sense”, I thought. I even experienced a kind of visual clarity while this was happening. But then my eyes met a sign on the stage which said, in French, “Please leave space here”. There was an internal laugh, and the whole of that story began to drop, unravel and become see-through. The deep silence of Being returned, though in a sense tainted with this grand tale that the bodymind had spun. I relaxed, smiling at the child sitting next to me, and fell into meditation again, impassioned by Amma’s beautiful form.”

I hope this sheds some light on your own process perhaps, or on why it is worth it to keep going as deeply into Truth as you can. I have observed that often after a great opening, the deepest conditioning can come up like that – masquerading as Truth, in a way. It takes a great deal of surrender to see through that kind of story, rather than following it.

I will be doing the Vortex Healing Earthshift this weekend, so I hope to see some of you there 🙂

And last but not least, thanks to one of you I now have a venue for in-person healing. This will most likely be available on Wednesdays in EC1, which I will confirm in due course.

Much Love to you,

Daisy

Amma: London, 10th & 11th Nov only (Devi Bhava 11th)

Hello 🙂

Yes, Amma will be with us shortly 🙂 It is a shorter program than usual, with only 2 days (the Devi Bhava being on that last day). Please call or text me if you have not yet met Amma and want to know more. Here are the practical details:-

http://www.amma.org.uk/ammas-tour.htm

As some of you know, I recently went to be with Amma in Paris (at the very last minute!) and then in Germany at the new M.A. Centre there. I returned late on the 25th Oct, but had caught the flu, which left me in bed or on the sofa for the best part of last week. This is why I have not written to you until now.

I suppose what I want to say about all my experiences up to now that could be helpful, is that all the fantasies I had about spiritual awakening are untrue. Being what I am and letting go into that is not some kind of get-out clause in my life (as much as I would like it to be), or a pinnacle of self-improvement. You may have heard this before, sure. But when you actually realise this experientially…it melts you. Melts you, and then you still have to pay the bills 😉 What I am saying is that if you really want the Truth, and that’s a big ‘if’, then don’t stuff everything there that you don’t want to deal with in your life, even though that is incredibly tempting. This is my experience anyway. If this touches anything in you and you would like to discuss it, please do call me. Otherwise, I hope to see you at Amma’s in London or in a session soon.

Much Love,

Daisy

Amazing U-AP…

Hello,

First of all I want to honour all the sessions I have done so far with those of you who have booked since I have come back from the Vortex Healing training. It is simply amazing what can be done now with these new tools – beyond anything I could have hoped for.

One session in particular – the one I just did, has left a streak in me that feels very blissful 🙂 There was a period during it where it was as if I could see into the doorway of the Divine: I experienced this person’s system being turned inside out by the Divine in a spectacular show of firework-like beauty. The light which I witnessed has had a profound effect on me, on a level I could not have even imagined. Thank you to that person for this opportunity!

So, please do come and have something worked on if there is something which feels out of alignment for you, or in your life.

Just to remind you that Amma will be here on the 10th & 11th Nov only, in London. The Devi Bhava will be on the night of the 11th. Please ask any questions you may have if you have not yet met Amma. Entrance and darshan and may other things there at Alexandra Palace are free. Here is the link:-

http://www.amma.org.uk/ammas-tour.htm

Also, you have until the 31st Oct this month to pre-register for Adyashanti’s retreats next year. Here is the link:-

http://www.adyashanti.org/index.php?file=retreatsschedule

And finally, in answer to some of your questions: my prices are remaining the same for the U-AP work. Some of my friends and colleagues have raised prices and, while I support them in that, Divine guidance has shown me to keep mine the same: £80 for a 1 & 1/2 hr session.

Looking forward to being with you in this immense grace 🙂

Love,

Daisy

Now For Something Completely Different

Hello,

First of all, apologies for the radio silence. I have been unable until now to speak about what I have experienced while away answering the calling of my heart, particularly regarding the Vortex class I just went on. I have been through a complete life-change-shift with the loss of the Original Veil and everything else from that class.

I am blown away by the power of the new Vortex Healing tool, the U-AP (Universal Assemblage Point)…wow… I have been doing around 2 hours of self-healing per day and feel as if something has totally dropped away in my system. I have never felt that an issue can be cleared in such a thorough way, where afterwards you actually feel transformed with a sense of tangible permanence. The only other ‘things’ that have had such an effect on me have been awakenings. Some of you may have heard about the U-AP already. Here is what Vortex Healing teacher Anthony Gorman says about it:-

“I had my first U-AP healing from Keren [his wife] this morning and I am as amazed now, as I was when I got it myself. It really is a paradigm shift in healing. Not something that should be compared to anything else, even to Merlin’s Grace, in terms of percentages deeper etc. This is experientially like Divinity simply unfolding itself. And as an embodiment of That, it is not just about release, the release almost now takes second place to what is really awakening and embodiment. “

I cannot wait to share this with you! Do call with any questions at all you may have about the U-AP, as it is a big leap from Merlin’s Grace: 07931 536 700 (same number as before). The best part is, an issue can be cleared in most cases in about 2 sessions. And I don’t mean cleared in a way that you have ever felt before, but to a completely new depth and breadth. If Merlin decides to work on 2 intertwined threads at once, then it can take longer. But either way, you save money and time because it is faster than was possible before. I am so thrilled about this tool! It is a total shift, and I hope you will find it to be as well.

I will write more soon,

Love to you,

Daisy

Distance Healing

Hello 🙂

I am off on my journeys tomorrow, beginning with the silent meditation retreat with Adyashanti.

After that, I am available for distance healing from the ashram with Amma and then from Virginia Beach for the Vortex Healing training, ‘Original Veil’. In all cases this will be by (limited) email arrangement and communication, due to circumstance rather than choice.

The time difference in Amma’s ashram is that I will be 4 & 1/2 hrs ahead of London. That is from the 28th Aug – 14th Sept (allowing for adjustment days). In Virginia Beach, I will be 5 hrs behind London. That is from 20th Sept – 3rd Oct. In the ashram my time is more flexible, in Virginia Beach I will be available after 6pm (or early mornings) local time.

Please do book as soon as possible, because email is limited while I am away. But if you can’t, then email me whenever you can. I am in service to you.

May the force be with you 🙂

Love,

Daisy

Awakening

Hello 🙂

How are you? I hope you are enjoying the opening that the summer can bring. I want to write about something I don’t find easy to write about, but that I often get asked about. I hope you find it useful.

People often ask me about my experience of awakening. Firstly, I want to say that this is a wide term used for a variety of quite different things. From my point of view, I am talking about the ‘I’ in the heart completely dissolving and never coming back, and the subsequent living of life without separation. I am not talking about the full embodiment of that, nor am I describing ascension, the end of suffering or a spiritual vision, experience or insight, or about theories or philosophies of any kind. Many of those are lovely and I am as partial to them as the next person. Awakening, though, is sudden and unlike anything else. It comes in through the back door, as it were…when we are totally unprepared.

In Vortex Healing terminology, we call this the falling away of the Core Veil. In me, that happened in 2005 during a Vortex Healing class called ‘Heart, Freedom, Presence’. I have written about this on my website in the bio page. The interesting thing is that I am observing more and more that people are coming to me with a deep longing for awakening and I seem to be able to (as other practitioners of my level in Vortex are able to) work on that with them using the Grid tool, which you may have experienced me using with you in healing sessions. Last week, this happened in a session with a client who has recently completed the Omega level training in Vortex. The healing began and I was guided to work on her Core Veil using the Grid. Within seconds, I saw a piece of it move, completely falling away. This has happened before in sessions, but it never ceases to thrill and amaze me… I felt so privileged to be there and to be able, via Grace, to help facilitate this. Needless to say, the client felt the shift.

To relate all this to my own felt reality now, I can say that the oneness realised that day in 2005 is always here, but there are times at which it feels ‘brighter’ (for want of a better word) or ‘duller’ than at other times. When suffering has been great, I have lost all sense of oneness and yet it remains and that is realised in a profoundly deep way. As an example of the ‘brightening’, last Saturday, upon returning from facilitating equine assisted therapy in Surrey, I met a woman on the train who turned out to be a Catholic nun (she was in normal clothing). We shared our passion for Divinity in our diverse ways and how it shines at the heart of both of our lives. When this lady got off the train, she held my hand saying, “Daisy you have strengthened me”. For some reason, when I sat down again, I closed my eyes. I was taken into an extraordinarily deep sense of oneness…it was very beautiful indeed. I recognised the absolute permanence of this – that it is always here, but I do not always notice fully. I sat like this for the whole journey and could have done so for a lot longer, but had to get off the train. Some of the side effects were a deep and profound sense of peace and an in-loveness with everything, including the pavement and particularly the hand rail in the tube station! I felt compelled to stop and stroke the rail for some time. It was so full, of life and beauty and ecstasy… The brightening continued and then faded eventually. I realised that this was simply by believing thoughts. That’s really all it takes – just to believe one thought, and the whole conscious experience of awakeness / oneness can disappear, just as suddenly as it appeared before. It was Adyashanti who I first heard describe this part.

I have not heard anything about Adyashanti coming to London during his England trip this August, but his wife Mukti will give satsang. Here is the link:-

http://www.adyashanti.org/index.php?file=mukti_events&eventid=1222

Also, here is Ric’s (Vortex founder) book, which is like a beginners guide to Vortex Healing, but as a Vortex person of 14 years I am absolutely loving it! Really, really worthwhile:-

http://www.amazon.co.uk/VortexHealing%C2%AE-Divine-Energy-Healing-Awakening/dp/1504330234/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1438259089&sr=1-1&keywords=vortex+healing

Finally, I am still here in London and available for healings.

During my time away, I will be available for distance healing. Again, the dates I will be away are: 16th Aug – 6th Oct.

Love and care,

Daisy

Amma’s Vision, Amma’s Action

Hello 🙂

I wanted to share with you a keynote address Amma, and researchers from her Amrita University, were invited to give the United Nations on the subject of sustainable development (NYC, 8th July 2015):-

http://webtv.un.org/search/part-1-amrita-university-event-an-international-conference-on-technology-for-sustainable-development/4346066038001?term=technology%20and%20sustainable%20development

http://webtv.un.org/search/part-2-amrita-university-event-an-international-conference-on-technology-for-sustainable-development/4346071033001?term=technology%20and%20sustainable%20development

The first video features Amma’s address at around minute 26.

The thing which touched me most from the broadcasts was this: a group of PhD researchers from Amma’s Amrita University acquired research funding from the European Commission to research landslides. This was the first of such funding to be provided to a project like this in India by Europe. Amma asked the researchers, “What is your plan?”. They replied that they would do laboratory simulations and then publish a paper (as is normal in this kind of research). Amma then asked, “Please wire the money back to the Commission”. They were aghast, insisting, “Why Amma? This is a prestigious project!”. Amma replied that their project could directly save lives, and that they should go to a landslide-prone area and deploy their system immediately; otherwise it was her wish that they wire the money back. This kind of global thinking, rooted in the greatest true compassion I have ever known, is typical of Amma. Needless to say, the researchers honoured her wisdom and saved many lives in the process.

Amma will be with us in Alexandra Palace from 10th – 11th Nov 2015 (Devi Bhava on the 11th – all night). This is a shorter program than usual. Please ask me if you would like any further information about Amma, or her London visit later this year.

I hope this email finds you well,

Much Love,

Daisy

Dreams and Practicalities

Hello 🙂

How are you? I was wondering if you have been having particularly intense dreams of late? I have, as have my friends. I was staying with a friend in a tent and she dreamt that she was going through some hell realms and terrible places where there were experiments being done on humans, even while they were still alive! Then Amma came into the dream and showed her that, yes, she would find Her [ie, God realisation] through even that place, but that it would be so much easier if she would surrender to Her.

Now for the practicalities.

There are still places on the waiting list for Adyashanti’s retreat in August in Surrey. I HIGHLY recommend this. In addition, almost everyone I know who has been on the waiting list in previous years has got onto the retreat. Here is the link:  http://www.adyashanti.org/index.php?file=retreatsschedule

I have found a beautiful space to do healing from, but it won’t be available until October. I am currently offering to come to your home to do sessions, if you live in London (and not on the outskirts). So, for now, I will be able to offer you in-person healings in this manner. Skype sessions remain as normal if you live outside London, or if you prefer them, as some of you do.

I have decided to take 7 weeks off over the summer to answer the deepest calling within me. I will be away from the 16th Aug – 6th Oct. I will first be with Adyashanti (see above), then Amma in India and then Vortex Healing in America, for the class ‘Original Veil’. It is after this class that the sessions I do will take a huge leap in power and depth, because of what we will receive via transmission in class. The best news is, I will be offering distance healing during most of my time away. Sessions will be conducted via email (using the Global Healing Grid), as Skype will not be available due to very limited and public internet access.

Please do call me if any of this is unclear, or if you have any questions, or even simply want to share 🙂

Best wishes and warm heartfulness,

Daisy

Never Cease to be Amazed…

Hello 🙂

I never ceased to be amazed by the sheer power of Vortex Healing. I woke up early this morning with painful thoughts and feelings, following many endings over the past two weeks. So I decided to sit up and do some healing on myself using Merlin’s Grace, continuing with an issue I had been working through. An hour later, I got up and had breakfast. As I opened the fridge, I realised I had completely changed. The feelings had lifted and I felt lighter, especially in my body. I felt happy, which really was a dramatic turnaround, in just an hour.

Some of you have also reported wonderful experiences of late, for example describing a session as “absolutely amazing” and feeling like you had got to the heart of your suffering during it, in a way that paralleled taking actual Vortex classes. Another person said that, not only was she feeling different, but other people in her life were also responding differently to her. From my point of view, this is a real statement because it shows that the transformation which happened actually came through on a life level, and positively impacted other people.

For practical reasons, I have decided to hand in my notice at my two voluntary clinical placements, which will give me more time. I am working on building a private practice in Counselling, alongside a re-vamp of my Vortex practice.

If anyone knows of an inexpensive space from which I can practice either/both of these and you feel it has a good atmosphere and nice people, please do get in contact.

I hope this email finds you well and listening to that silent voice within which is the guide to your life and to your ultimate transformation,

Love,

Daisy

Time and Attention

Hello 🙂

You now have my increased time and attention, you will be pleased to hear. I have spent the past 3 years taken over by the BA(Hons) in Counselling, but now…it is over! I got a 2:1! Very pleased 🙂

My other work remains – the Equine Assisted Therapy, the voluntary clinical placement in Hackney and the voluntary clinical placement in Tower Hamlets – but the end of the degree means I have something like 20 hours per week now available, that was previously consumed (on every level) by it.

So please do contact me if you would like healing work. I will also be looking for a suitable venue in the Camden area, so that I can do face-to-face sessions once more.

Looking forward, there are rumours that Adyashanti will do an evening in London come August 🙂 This is in addition to the silent retreat he is facilitating in Surrey from the 16th – 20th.

Also, on the 20th of this month there is a Vortex Healing class here in London, for anyone able to take – or repeat – the Omega level.

I hope you are all enjoying, or have enjoyed, some of this beautiful sunshine 🙂

Best wishes to you,

Daisy

Day off this Bank Holiday Monday

Hello,

How are you? I wanted to say I have been thinking of you although I haven’t written for a long time. I am wondering how you are – how you are with the stillness and what is happening inside you?

I have just done several hours of meditation following a long sleep, both of which I have not made time for recently due to stress. It feels so good to return…

Perhaps I will say a little about what I feel meditation is, as sometimes it seems to be a rather misunderstood term. My experience of meditation is that I come home as what I really truly am in a given moment, or in many apparent moments which seem to be strung together. When I sit to meditate, I often use a guided meditation from Adyashanti (for example, from ‘The Way of Liberating Insight’ online course I am doing), or I may chant the Names to Amma, or I may just sit down, close my eyes and be still. Whatever the practice, to me meditation is what I am – simply that. Meditation is what I am. In a sense, I could say it is the act of being what I am (although that isn’t quite it). And what can happen within meditation is the slicing through, the piercing, of a deep conditioned pattern in a way that completely and radically dissolves that pattern. It may return, wounded, and yet it never can completely return once that kind of insight has taken place. Please do ask me to elaborate on this if you are interested.

What is your experience of meditation? I would love to hear your experiences.

This Monday I am taking the day off. I will not therefore be able to offer the usual Half Price Deal. I suppose I don’t feel it would be ethical to work when I am in the business of facilitating healing and I can feel that my bodymind needs to heal. I am thinking of you and wishing you Love and Truth in whatever you are involved in,

Take care,

Love,

Daisy

This Friday – May I Advise Your Spiritual Calendar? :-)

Hello,

How are you? Personally, I am enjoying the sunshine spree we are having in London 🙂 I’m still very excited by the online Adyashanti course I am doing and by the Vortex Healing I am facilitating. One of you said post-session,

“I never felt so much freedom from a Vortex session….….I almost forgot what it felt like to be free”.

I would like to draw your attention to an event you may be interested in this weekend. This is a teacher who comes highly recommended to me by two close friends. I cannot vouch for her myself, so I will be there this Friday evening to see how she is. She will also be doing Sat morn and Sat eve I believe. Here is the link:-

http://www.saraswathima.org/userGetDesctiption.action?selectedScheduleId=34. Also, it’s a ‘free / donation’ event, so lucky us!

Mother Meera will be with us soon also. I have written about her before, but please ask if you do not know. This is a darshan not to be missed! http://www.saraswathima.org/userGetDesctiption.action?selectedScheduleId=34. I will be there on 26th May at 10am.

If you are having skin or intestinal problems, I would like to recommend my friend’s new enterprise, offering consultations on these issues. He comes from a nutritional/scientific perspective and aims to isolate the root and address the problem from there: http://www.perfectskinhealth.co.uk/.

A colleague recently made a very important point (on FB) regarding the phenomenal shifts which have happened in Vortex over the past few weeks. The advances mean that after the Original Veil course this September (which I will be on), we will be able to transform an entire issue in only a few sessions, or less. Not only does this save you a lot of money (because you will need less sessions), but also, here is what Ric (head of Vortex) says about this new work:-

“I can create the results of a full Merlin’s Grace Protocol on myself, including integration, in 10-15 minutes! And with just 2 steps. When done, there is nothing I can do with Merlin’s Grace to add to it, and the release is actually deeper than what would have happened with the Protocol…….Another plus for those who just like to work intuitively, is that you can just follow what you see and channel this as you go.”

Not bad, ey? This is not an April fools 😉 I really don’t know any other healing system that is transforming and growing the way Vortex is. It’s simply amazing… Thinking of you and hoping things are unfolding beautifully in stillness and dynamic stillness,

Simply let everything be as it is…and there Freedom is

Hello 🙂

How are you?

I have been working with Adyashanti’s book ‘The Way of Liberation’, looking more deeply into what it is that I really value in life. I decided to do one of his guided meditations to help, and in the wake of it a text exchange unfolded between my first girlfriend (who I met in secondary school) and I. She happens to be coming into awakening organically, not through spirituality. Perhaps it has been through suffering, or through her training in psychotherapy. Ultimately, there is no way of knowing. At any rate, she began speaking with me about her experiences about 2 years ago and I identified them immediately as the ‘I’ falling away in some way. I want to share some excerpts from our texts today with you and receive feedback about your own experiences, if you feel like sharing them.

Me: It was really good to see you on Friday…….I just want to reiterate something: I believe there is a way out of this for you. But I don’t think it is through psychotherapy. I’m being blunt because I want you to be helped. If you want Marlies and Claudia’s details, let me know, as that may be a good place to start……

R: …..I just feel very unsettled and desperately want some peace. It’s like I can’t live without deeply thinking about things at the moment and you get to the point where nothing means anything……

Me: Ultimately that no-thing is very true. You are touching upon the ultimate nature of yourself and of life I think. But it may be that your mind is suddenly interpreting that as something which is not true. Does that make sense?

R: Sure it does but then my head goes to whats the point of even getting out of bed then, meeting people, working… To know that but to keep going is what I’m struggling with. I would like to live mindlessly for a bit!

Me: It’s natural to feel like that. Me and all my friends who are interested in this have been through it. Essentially the will you were used to living from is gone, or at least a significant part is gone. Before you settle into your true origin point (which happens organically in its own time) and live from that, there is usually a period where the old ‘place’ is gone and you don’t know what is now motivating you. But there IS something living you. You just can’t taste it so strongly yet. Let everything go that wants to go. Holding on doesn’t work, I can certainly report that. So, may as well surrender 🙂 Just because nothing else functions now but that. Soon you will be lived by what you are, rather than trying to live for what you’re not. True freedom 🙂 xx

Also, I took part in a web satsang from Marlies Cocheret on Sat, which I highly recommend. And don’t worry – it is by donation 🙂 You can sign up at any time through this link for her newsletter: http://marliescocheret.us2.list-manage.com/subscribe?u=ac1ec34ebc0ed84c9abdb0045&id=48523f145f

And Mother Meera will be here in May 🙂 Details: http://mothermeera.org.uk/. Do let me know if you are unsure as to what she is/does.

I hope you are well,

Best wishes 🙂 🙂 🙂

“Healing is about receiving Grace”

Hello,

Yesterday I attended a very deepening day with Anthony (Vortex Healing teacher) in an embodiment class. The title of this email is the way he described the purpose of healing, which resonated for me. The class was phenomenal……..really, it never ceases to amaze me what Vortex Healing is doing and the depth to which it can take a class full of students in only 1 day. I reconnected with a very deep sense of stillness, of what I am. In a way, I could end this email with those words! But, for entertainment, I ask you to indulge me a little further.

I suppose what I want to say about the class is that it helped me to see my real interest in life more clearly and to understand that everything I am currently doing work-wise is an expression of that, even though on one level counselling and Vortex Healing sometimes appear to contradict one another. I realised that it is only a lack of confidence that makes me see separation where deep down I don’t experience any, and gets me thinking I should be doing things the way other people do. In a new way I recognised the particular thread that runs through my life and how this is being nurtured. I am talking about my capacity to feel Truth and the fire burning in my heart for the Divine.

I want to talk briefly about why I have been unavailable of late and to acknowledge that that may have been difficult for some of you and that you may also have been concerned about me. Between Boxing Day and Valentine’s Day, I didn’t have a single day off and before that I was also under pressure. I was dealing with a lot of difficult life dramas and I don’t say that lightly. They included needing to separate completely from my Mum, moving home twice, being stalked by a mentally ill client (Police involvement), a bad chest infection and writing the most challenging 3 essays of my life at the last minute. However, it has been a time of deep embodiment, embodying the stillness I found myself as after my ‘summer of love’ (Adya, Amma and Vortex), which then moved into dynamic stillness through these challenges. I am also now involved in some exciting work in Kent giving group therapy to footballers from the FA who are in recovery from substance misuse, using horses. Giving sessions to you has been a major highlight too, plus I got onto the Adyashanti retreat in August and am currently doing his online course ‘The Way of Liberating Insight’.

Now I am taking more time to rest and to do my practices. Therefore I am more available for sessions than I was (NB these are currently via Skype or I can come to you). Finally, I wanted to remind you about the upcoming Basic Vortex course on the 6th March – it is not too late to get on or repeat and I would highly recommend either. You can click here for more details: http://vortexhealing.org/Schedule2015-SortedByDate.pdf

Let me know how you are if you get the time,

Best wishes,

Daisy

The Mystery of Our Patterns

Hello,

I want to write to you today about something I discovered in my own process last night. I was on a real comedown from all the amazing pursuits of the summer and all my stuff was coming up. So I decided to be with it and surrender, as best I could.

Eventually, I began to look into what was happening inside. I realised I had made an assumption about what the pattern was which was coming up and was concerned because I had done so much work on that already. When I felt into everything and talked to Amma and Merlin, I found it wasn’t the pattern I had presumed it was. I think that one had been greatly cleared by all the protocol work I had done on it with Merlin’s Grace and probably by all the time I spent in silence, with Adya, Amma and the Breaking with the Past class (by the way, if you are unfamiliar with these terms – please do ask). It was something else – in fact, there were two patterns and they had been uncovered by the original one moving.

So…if you are wondering, “Why do I still feel crappy when I have had ‘x’ number of sessions of Vortex Healing or done ‘x’ number of classes?”, the answer may be that a pattern which was ‘hiding’ has been brought to the surface by all that work you have done, and it can now be moved.

If this rings any bells, please give me one 🙂

Best wishes,

Daisy

Breaking with the Past

Hello,

Such a cool name for a class, I thought, why not make it the title of this email too? It was wonderful… Such deep embodiment. As I said to Ric, I felt like Amma was coming down and into my body – a thorough sense of stillness… And the words came, “It’s not my will, it’s Divine will”. That seemed to speak volumes for my whole life and all experiences. We are very very lucky to be part of this lineage.

Now, more importantly for you, what will you gain from me having done the class? Well, for one, you have one happier, healthier healer to hand 🙂 More than that, the sense of embodiment is deeper and that necessarily means that my ability to bridge the Vortex energies into you is stronger. We also learned about new techniques which may help you. They are as follows:-

Optimising the immune intelligence field (in the case of frequent infections)

Transforming the nervous system intelligence field (for burnt out/weak nervous system and associated problems)

For jobs with lots of sitting (which impacts the nervous system): optimising the spleen, stomach and nervous system energy pathways

For jobs with lots of mental activity (which locks the energy in the head): optimising the bladder, gall bladder and stomach energy pathways

For allergies: transforming the vibrational, immune and Jin Shin Intelligence fields

A super quick and one-off Chi boost: only 1 minute! – transforming the cellular consciousness of an organ to optimise the Chi there (which is usually being created by the organ itself, when it is fully healthy)

So, do contact me if you want to receive these life-enhancing healings. I am still fully in the after-class glow, so make the most of it if you can. I hope these words find you well and happy in whatever you are doing. My parting words are (well, they are Ric’s really :-): it truly is plenty to drop into stillness… In all and any dramas, you can simply drop into stillness. And I would add that, if only we trusted stillness more than we trust our minds and feelings, this world could be such a very different place.

Warm wishes and Amma excitement,

Daisy

Amma in London 27th – 29th Oct

Hello 🙂

Amma is coming to London on the 27th – 29th October. I highly recommend getting involved in seva (selfless service) while you are there. It is Amma’s primary teaching for self realisation and it helps you feel involved in what is going on, grounding you. Here is the link for information: http://www.amma.org.uk/ammas-tour.htm

I will be away doing the next Vortex Healing class – Breaking with the Past – from the 10th – 18th October, so please do call to book a session before that week.

I wanted to recount a story from my time on the ashram, as a way of showing how Amma notices every detail and certainly hears our intention, even when she is multi-tasking like a trojan! It was the day on which Amma feeds us prasad lunch (she blesses the plate of food and gives it to us, one by one). There were four lines going up to where she was handing out the plates and it was the usual ashram mayhem 🙂 I noticed a sign asking us to wait until some phrases of the Bhagavad Gita had been chanted before eating the food we were about to be given. I thought, “Maybe I’ll wait” (which I never usually do) and then I thought about how difficult that might be because I was hungry. So I concluded, “Let’s see what Amma does when I get up there”. A helper started asking us to come quickly to Amma and keep the lines moving. When I was close, I thought, “I wonder what I would do if Amma scolded me?” and then thought, “I would simply open my heart to her”. When I got very close, I could see that she was in a complete flow, handing each plate perfectly to each person, even though there were four lines of us. I reached out my hand, but Amma moved the plates around so I couldn’t take one! She was not looking at me and then she said in English, looking straight ahead, “Wait”. Finally, she handed me my plate. In one word, she had answered all of my thoughts. It didn’t feel like being told off, even though I was being: it felt like oneness flowing towards me, like a blessing, which is how friends have described their experiences of being scolded by Amma. I waited for the chanting of the Gita and for Amma to start eating and then I ate my lunch, in absolute amazement…

I leave you with this translated exerpt from a bhajan that we sang one evening, called ‘Oru Koccu Pulnambin’ (Bhajanamritam Vol III, pg 175):-

When the immeasurable time I seek to measure,

The ‘I’ fades away, ‘You’ and ‘all’ are erased.

If the ‘I’ is not, who is to know whom? A void absolute.

When the unfathomable ocean I seek to fathom,

I dissolve into the vast deep roaring brine together with my rod.

Ah! Then, there is no ‘me’ to swim ashore to tell its depth.

Warm wishes,

Daisy

Into Great Silence

Hello,

I once watched a film with the same title as this email. Have you seen it? It is about a monastery and is silent all the way through, with only environmental noises etc. happening here and there – a wonderful achievement in the film world I think. I love the name and it perhaps describes what I am about to enter into at Adyashanti’s first silent retreat in England. I know some of you will also be there 🙂 🙂 🙂

I can feel waves of silence almost like rushes through my system and there was a deep profundity during my meditation this morning. I feel so incredibly privileged to have this opportunity and be willing and able to take it.

So, it is goodbye from me for now. As you know, I will be going to be with Amma in India afterwards, where I will have some email access. I return on the 20th September. I will miss you,

With Love,

Daisy

The Joy of Sunday

Hello,

I am really beginning to enjoy Sunday. Do you know what I mean? It feels to me that there is a relaxation in the group consciousness on Sundays, which contributes to the desire to stop and rest, to be with myself, or rather to be Self. I wonder if you get this too?

I have been thoroughly enjoying also my sessions with you. I will mention one of them, but I want to point out in general that if I don’t mention yours it may be because there is such a deep silence after it, that there is nothing to say. Sometimes everything that needed to happen in the session happened.

Something which did strike me during a session this week, was that the person could actually feel the sensation of me clearing her twisted/knotted vital web lines. I did not say that I was doing this, rather she brought it up afterwards, explaining her experience and I realised what she was talking about. She was also able to track her ego during the dialogue we had, and all the cards it was playing, but to stay with herself – with truth. That is a real skill and it was a joy to witness. You may notice in this kind of work, or in life in general really, that the ego will play one card, then when that doesn’t work, the next and so on until it gets your attention away from allowing everything to be as it is. For example, let’s say you clash with someone: the first thought/feeling might be anger and you may react to that. But if you don’t, then maybe the next one will be feeling hurt. If that still doesn’t work, the ego will invariably throw fear into the mix, because it knows how much it can control you with it. Fear (or control) is often the last stop-out for illusion as it desperately attempts to dominate what it has never been able to. I would love to hear your experiences of this, so do share them if you would like to.

Just to remind you that I am here and am going away from the 17th Aug – 20th Sept. I look forward to hearing what is going on for you before that,

Bye for now,

Best wishes,

Daisy

Real Healing

Hello,

After getting in this evening, I watched this beautiful video of Marlies Cocheret and wanted to share it with you. I am not keen on the other woman, but I love what unfolds and what Marlies talks about. See if you like it:-

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ntlKhLVb_9Y

I also wanted to clarify (because I realised it since writing the last email to you) that it is the awakening of the issue in addition to the re-networking which seems to be so effective in the new Vortex Healing treatments.

I have been touched this past week by the desire of some of you to awaken – in a real sense – to your true nature. The whole flow of the session is affected by this, amongst other things, and it makes my work an absolute pleasure. It becomes an effortless unfolding into Truth, very vulnerable because there is no map and no preparation for that, and yet so soft and open at the same time.

Something I don’t often remember to say is that I invite you to bring anything to me that may come up for you between us. I have learned this from my therapy training and find it incredibly useful in laying the foundations for honesty and intimacy within our therapeutic alliance. This may look something like, “There was this thing you said the other week and I felt like this about it”. Or it may look completely different of course, I don’t know 🙂 But I feel this is an important way of opening everything up and remaining in touch with one another.

I hope you are having a relaxing night: good night for now,

Best wishes,

Daisy

Re-Networking with Vortex Healing

Hello,

What a stunning sunset tonight… Through it I can see Alexandra Palace from my kitchen and it reminds me of Amma. It has prompted me to remind you of the dates for her visit to London this year, which are 27th – 29th October (the last night will be all night for Devi Bhava).

I have been experiencing fantastic results from the new Re-Networking Vortex Healing technique. This is used when other Vortex work has been done on an issue and then the Divine is able to come in and dissolve the remainder of the ‘network’ of what is left for that issue. For myself, working on a fear patterning in my left side has been so liberating. One effect from it is that I can now see when thoughts I am having are simply fear and I can let them go effortlessly. I also feel so much more relaxed and in my body and many other issues (‘higher up’ in my system as it were) have begun to let go spontaneously as a result. Again, I am able to experience them for what they are, as opposed to getting stuck in them. It really is remarkable stuff, so do come for a session if any of this appeals to you.

I will be going away this summer, first on silent retreat with Adyashanti in Surrey and afterwards to be with Amma in Amritapuri. It is not for a while and I am definitely available for healings now, but I wanted to let you know in advance: I will be away from the 17th August to the 20th September.

Some of you have friend-requested me on Facebook. I am flattered. In no way do I wish to reject you, but I have to decline this. You may remember what happened a few months ago and the precautions I informed you that I am taking as a result. However, there is the option to add me on LinkedIn and Twitter, because I only use them for healing. I hope this does not cause offence to anyone, because that is absolutely not my intention.

Wishing you a gorgeous sunset and a light beginning to your week,

Best wishes,

Daisy

Following Intuition

Hello,

I have been contemplating what it is to follow intuition this week. What makes it difficult for many of us, from an awakening perspective, is that there are so many attachments and aversions which get in the way. You sense something – like a “Go this way” – and then ignore it in favour of what you wanted to do, or what you thought you should do. Then that turns out to collapse in some way, because it was out of alignment with you as you really are. Does this sound familiar?

So, what can be done about this seeming catch 22? Really only one thing. And you probably already know what that is, from the very place I am pointing to. It is a question of coming back to reality, of listening to yourself, to that deep and silent voice which only ever has one thing to say. Very simple and, at the same time, not necessarily easy. Meditation, chanting, being with Amma, Adyashanti, self inquiry, walking in nature etc. are all helpful in reconnecting with what life is actually saying inside you. But even before that, often you know what your intuition is saying, even if you don’t want to know.

It is currently Mercury Retrograde until the 1st of July. This may explain a lot, as it did to me when I was kindly informed of it by one of you earlier today. In case you don’t know, this astrological movement affects communication and transport.

I hope you are getting time to enjoy the glorious sunshine we are having periodically at the moment,

Best wishes,

Daisy

Risking Being Alive

Hello,

I was just reflecting on how fear is often at the root of whatever issue is coming up for us as human beings. The sense of fear-based survival rings like a bell, or more accurately a scream, throughout our consciousness. Yet it is often so suppressed that we don’t hear it and are out of touch with the way it is controlling our lives. My inner work on this has been greatly inspired by Ric, my therapist and by you and your journey.

It would not be an understatement to say that the biggest leaps I have ever made in terms of awakening and embodiment, have happened when (or after) I have been risking everything – absolutely everything, regardless of the outcome. Before that, I was saying I wanted truth but I wasn’t actually going for it. Can you relate to this? If so, I would love to hear your story. I want to add here, that the way risking would look for one person would be different to another. And it has nothing to do with sky-diving or anything like that. It is about breaking with your particular personal attachment. And not so that you can have it again after you’ve given it up. I know it isn’t easy. Not at all, and self-love becomes more important than ever here. Plus a look at the alternative is motivating I find.

On a different note, do you have hay fever? If so, help is at hand. It involves working on the immune system and Re-networking it, which is the latest thing in Vortex Healing. Re-networking means breaking down the entire network of something all at once and it came from Ric realising that, as well as stuff being held in particular places in the human system, it is also held as a network. That network can be dissolved in order to meet and transform the issue as a whole (in this case the whole allergy). However, please bear in mind that allergy work is tricky because the conditioning of allergies runs very deeply indeed, so this will work quicker for some people than others.

That’s all folks 🙂

Best wishes,

Daisy
