Morning Musings.............Love is a Battlefield???

I woke up this morning with the song "Love is a Battlefield" in my head and I thought to myself 'is it really?'

You see my husband and I have been going through some challenging times so I understand why this was playing in my head when I woke up but as I walked outside and kissed my cherubs good morning and patted my pup Amber and as I gave and received loved I thought to myself again, "Is it really? Is LOVE really a battlefield because right now, in this moment, it is easy and pure" and as I felt into this I knew I was right; Love is Love; Love is Easy and Pure!

So if Love is Love and Easy and Pure, why does it sometimes feel like a battlefield?? the answer came to me and it was so simple, it is our thoughts which create emotions which complicate it and turn it into a battlefield! Simple right?

The trick therefore is to get out of our heads, to release the thoughts and to stop perpetuating the battle. LET IT GO! LET IT GO! LET IT GO! This doesn't mean to roll over and float around with the tide, it means to stand in your power, reclaim it and let go of the negative thoughts that create the negative emotions because when you do this you can feel and see the answers to whatever it is that is weighing on you.

So my loves, clear your head so that you can allow your HEART and your SOUL to speak to you. Quiet your mind and listen to your heart, feel and see what your heart desires and work towards that.

I invite you now to take off your armour

  • Take a deep breath in and on the exhale let it go; let it all out! Let out all of those pre-conceived ideas of what should be. 
  • Take another deep breath in and this time on the exhale let go of the armour that is around your heart, let it melt away, let it burn off, let it explode off, rip it off with your bare hands. It is time my loves to take it off for you are not in a battle.
  • Take one more deep breath in and I want you to feel that air flowing through your being, through your lungs and entering your heart. On the exhale feel your heart fully open and expand while simultaneously releasing any of the last remnants of what is making way for what could be

So much love to you all beautiful Spirit Weavers

Love, Love, Love, Love; Crazy Love!

Love is the most powerful emotion there is but, can you define love? What does love actually mean? The meaning quite possibly changes from person to person and definitely changes from relationship to relationship eg mother to daughter; partner love; sibling; friendships etc.

sunset-hands-love-woman (2).jpg


The ancient Greeks used 7 words to define the different states of love:

Storge: natural affection, the love you share with your family. 

Storge is the effortless love that parents have for their children.  It is characterised by acceptance, forgiveness, and sacrifice. Through this love, children come to understand comfort, nurturing, security, and safety.


Philia: the love that you have for friends.

Philia is connected to companionship, trust, and friendship and most often exists when values are shared and feelings are mutually reciprocated. The Greeks considered Philia to be love among equals. It is free from physical attraction and has more to do with loyalty or a sense of team.


Eros: sexual and erotic desire kind of love. 

Eros is sexual desire in its purest form. Eros is both intense, consuming, and yet also quick to fade. Relationships built only on this form of love do not tend to last, which provides immense insight into the many short-lived relationships in our society that glamorises Eros.


Agape: this is the unconditional love, or divine love. 

Agape is what we feel for humanity, Mother Earth, and the Divine. We tap into Agape most easily through meditation, time in nature, and following our intuition while walking our spiritual path. Agape is given without expectation of anything in return.  The Greeks considered Agape, the highest form of love. It is bigger than our individual selves, free from desire and expectations, and exists despite shortcomings. It is connected to All That Is. 


Ludus: this is playful love, like flirting.

Imagine the early stages of falling in love or the playfulness that exists between new lovers.  It’s characterized by teasing, euphoria, flirting, and butterflies in the stomach. Despite the emphasis on what is new, long-term relationships need Ludus as well. It’s the secret ingredient to keeping love fresh and exciting.


Pragma: long standing love. The love in a married couple.

Pragma is love that has had time to age and develop over time. Pragma has transcended the casual and moved beyond the physical. There is an easy harmony and balance. Unlike Storge, Pragma requires effort from both parties. It is the art of learning compromise, developing patience, and being tolerant. It is characterised by duty, respect, admiration, compromise, and working toward common goals.


Philautia: the love of the self 

Our sense of belonging and purpose come from Philautia.  It is the self-love and self-worth needed to believe in ourselves so that we can walk our spiritual path. Philautia can be either healthy or unhealthy.  The unhealthy variety is connected to hubris and narcissism. It focuses on fame, wealth, and pleasure.  The healthy form of Philautia teaches us that we must learn to love ourselves first in order to truly love others; nor can we care for each other before we learn to do that for ourselves. The Greeks believed that the only way to true happiness was to learn unconditional love for yourself. It is the most direct way to experience spiritual freedom in this life.



Imagine just for a moment, if we as a society learnt and understood the 7 different types of love or states of love. We learnt how each state of love feels. How beautiful would the world be. When we can be aware of the types of love that exists. How beautiful to be able to define the love we have for someone with one simple word and that person understand exactly what you mean. 

Love is complex but not complicated (we make it complicated); Love is something that we all yearn for, it is what we are made of, it is what we thrive on and it is what we risk a lot for as well. Love is always incredibly juicy, exhilarating and rewarding and within every relationship, within each type of love lies an entire landscape of emotions and feelings and moments for us to savour, learn from and expand our knowledge on the depth of the word LOVE that we as a society so often throw about without really knowing the full impact of the what love actually is and without understanding the type of love that we feel for the other.

So although LOVE is LOVE, within the human word LOVE and within the emotions of LOVE there are many types of LOVE. Defining love and knowing how its different forms interact with each other and manifest in our lives is therefore vital for our development. 

So I ask you today, which types of love do you have in your life? and Do you choose and invite love into your life?


Much Love & Blessings

The Magic of Lapis Lazuli

Lapis Lazuli is a truly beautiful stone. Dark blue with flecks of gold pyrite through it and white calcite. Looking at it automatically takes you back to Ancient Egypt, when Pharaohs ruled. In fact, it was used to decorate the Pharaohs and is known as a stone of royalty and spirituality. To this day Lapis Lazuli still carries the vibration of the inner ‘queen’ or ‘king’ that lies dormant within us all.

Lapis Lazuli is best known as a spiritual awakener. It activates the higher mind and psychic abilities. It helps with inner vision and honest, open communication. It helps you journey deep into your being, allowing a Divine connection to self. The pyrite inclusions in lapis lazuli, help you to act upon your highest ideals and visions while the calcite clears the energy systems of the body to allow these higher spiritual energies to integrate with your soul. A match made in heaven.

I decided to connect in with the energy for Lapis Lazuli for myself...........

As soon as I hold onto the piece of Lapis Lazuli, I feel my third eye expand, my chest and throat open and tears stream down my face. I notice there is a cool breeze blowing on my face and as I turn, I meet my Higher Self in an open field. We run to each other and touch foreheads and as we do, there is light pulsating as Divine information is exchanged and then everything goes dark. I see a beam of light shining in the distance and go towards it. As I reach closer to the light, I see the light is coming from a keyhole. I go towards it and look in and I see myself….reminding me that I hold the key within me.

For me, Lapis Lazuli is a powerful reminder that we all hold the key to our happiness and our Divine guidance within us……we just have to be willing to look in, accept, love and trust ourselves 

Lapis Lazuli Freeform

I invite you now to connect in with your own piece of Lapis Lazuli or you can use one of the pictures here to connect with. 

Connecting In With Lapis Lazuli

Choose a piece of lapis lazuli and cleanse the crystal. You can use intention, sound, golden light or any other method you would like to use to cleanse the energy of your crystal.

Now that your crystal is cleansed, hold it to your heart and breathe love into your crystal. Now hold the crystal to your third eye and focus on the intention of connecting in with the crystal while it is there on your third eye. Now place the crystal on whichever part of your body feels right and breathe in the energy of the crystal. Let its energy infuse with that of yours and allow your third eye and intuition open to the message your piece of lapis lazuli has for you. Once you have received the wisdom and healing from your crystal, thank it and honour it by sending love to it.

I would suggest you record any insights and messages you received during your meditation.

When Tears Are All There Is

Let's be honest, sometimes life is tough. It can sometimes feel like life has taken you by the hands and then face planted you in the dirt. You are left dazed and confused and most often scared and then the tears start to flow as you try to make sense of everything that has just happened. 

Today I am here to tell you to let those tears fall. Let them fall and fall until there are no more. Allow yourself this most sacred space so that you can heal. I have found more often than not, that in these times, tears are a vital step towards healing. There is sacredness in tears and they help to cleanse the soul in the same way a rainstorm helps to cleanse Mother Earth. They help to relieve stress, anxiety, sadness and grief. In other words, they remove the debris; the tangible, forceful emotions that have pooled within so that they can be released and we can find some peace and emotional relief. They help us to think clearly once they have passed so that understanding can occur. 

The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea
— Isak Dinesen

Dr William Frey, a Biochemist and “tear expert” at the Ramsey Medical Center in Minneapolis discovered that emotional tears have special health benefits, they contain everything a normal reflex tear (98% water) does but they also contain a stress hormone which through crying gets released from the body. This explains why tears help us to feel better as they are literally removing the built up stress hormone from our bodies. It has also been noted that tears stimulate the production of endorphins, the "feel good" hormone in our body. 

No wonder why having a good cry makes us feel better!

Tears Are Healing

So the next time you feel overwhelmed and as if you need a good cry, remember this,


Allow yourself the freedom to sink into those emotions and cry those healing, cleansing tears out. 

All My Love & Blessings

Artist: psychedelicstuff

Artist: psychedelicstuff

I woke up this morning with the absolute knowing that I AM A DIVINE BEING! Yes I know this and am aware of this but this morning it permeated through another level of consciousness within me and I was so acutely and beautifully and lusciously aware of this truth.

So my loves let's do a little exercise together. I want you to stand up and look at yourself in a mirror and repeat these words:


Say these words as you look in your eyes. Say these words and feel the light within you start to sparkle and shine


Say it out loud and declare it to the heavens and to the earth! Declare it to yourself! Declare it to the Universe!!


Feel your cells activate with this truth. Feel the warmth and knowing of this truth radiate through your body. Feel your magnificence and just luxuriate in this for a couple of minutes. Let yourself be embraced by this knowing. Feel your heart open and expand as you align with this truth and declare


When the Gloves Come Off

What do you do when the gloves come off? When there is nothing else to face but yourself, your shadow, your light, your essence, your Divinity? 

Today is a new moon solar eclipse and yesterday all of my veils dropped away as I swam in the ocean, the hurt, the pain, the fear, the anger, the dark......I was faced staring at my shadow in its totality. I was faced staring down the "ugly" parts of myself I don't always want to see and I realised that yes, although these parts do not always serve my Higher Self, these are all aspects of myself and I also realised that I had a choice to make....


I could either choose to leave the gloves on and keep on fighting with myself trying to live up to an idea of what I think I should be


I could choose to take the gloves off, sink into myself and truly embrace all of these aspects including my shadow and learn how to work with them.


You see, we all have this choice to make, to either embrace ourselves wholly or run away and hide parts from not only the world but from ourselves as well. BUT the question then arises: When we do this, how are we serving ourselves? How can we really serve anyone and how are we facilitating our ascension?

How can we live in truth if we cannot admit when we are Not being truthful to ourselves? 

I can hear a BUT coming on.........let me explain further........A point to note is that just because you have accepted these aspects of self doesn't mean that you cannot work on forgiveness, on releasing the anger and the pain and fear. These tasks are imperative for our ascension and for our coming back to oneness with self and all.

Taking the gloves off simply means, facing every aspect of yourself, recognising them, acknowledging them, embracing their existence so that we can transmute them into LOVE cause really LOVE is all there is and it is only LOVE that can reunite all aspects.

Are you ready to take those gloves off? Go on I dare you to.......It's really not as scary as you think.

Much Love & Blessings

My New Program

I am so excited!! I have just launched my new and I might add, my first program ever!! 

7 Month Transformational Program Image
In this program, we will be delving deep into each of our seven major chakra energy points. We will be working together to release old belief systems and vows so we can free ourselves from these outdated patternings and programmes that are usually unconsciously running through us. 

I remember the first time I came across a Sacred Vow, I was a participant in an amazing workshop hosted by Julia Inglis where we created Medicine Dolls. In this workshop, we journeyed back through our lives to a time when we made a sacred vow.

For me, I went back to a particular life when I was chosen to me the medicine woman of our tribe. I remember feeling such excitement over this privilege and I also remember being confused at why my parents looked so sad. I would later learn that they were sad because as much of an honour it was, there were great sacrifices that came with the position; one of them was the sacrifice of family for my healing art.    

I vowed to not have a partner or children and to dedicate my life completely to my work. 

When I realised this everything clicked into place for me. You see in this present life, I was already pursuing my healing path and I had 3 beautiful children BUT I had this internal conflict going on inside of me that I couldn't understand.....I felt like I couldn't have it both. 

Releasing this vow was incredibly transformational for my life, for my family and for pursuing my soul work. 

Ever since this workshop I have been doing research on sacred vows and releasing ones that I have made throughout my lives. I didn't know it then, but that day was really the start of this program as it opened a door for me. 

If you are ready for change, to acknowledge and release these old patterns, programmes, vows and belief systems contact me and let's work together. It would be my privilege to work with you and to gently guide you on this journey back to self.

Much Love

Ocean Jasper Love

Ocean Jasper & Black Tourmaline

Ocean Jasper & Black Tourmaline

I wanted to share with you a little something….a little experience I had with a couple of crystals 

I had to go to the shopping centre to get some things and was not really looking forward to it. I tend to get really overwhelmed and irritable in shopping centres. This day, I thought to myself, ‘no way is this going to happen’. I grabbed my hemp necklace and placed an ocean jasper and a piece of black tourmaline in it and said, ‘do your stuff!’. Well, 3 hours later, I still felt upbeat, and full of energy and I didn’t even realise how long we were at the shops for.

Ocean Jasper helps to create feelings of joy and elevates your spirit while helping you to release any negative feelings. Perfect!! A great stone if you need a lift in energy

Black Tourmaline is known for its grounding energies and for helping to transmute any negative energies around you. It also encourages a positive attitude.

The combination of these 2 was just perfect and I still use it today in crowded places!

So why not give it a try if you are going to be out and about in large crowds and find it a ‘wee bit’ overwhelming.

Much Love, Deena xXx
