A Letter To Mother Earth At A Time Of Great Change

A Letter To Mother Earth At A Time Of Great Change

Dear Mother Earth,

We have had our differences throughout the years without a doubt. As you cried for balance, we strove for advancement and success. As you pleaded for gentleness and compassion, we turned a blind eye and created more conveniences and waste.

But something is changing. Humanity is awakening once more, and is deciding to make changes. Mother Earth, we are beginning to once again listen. The stories and teachings of our ancestors, that spoke of perfect harmony between the human world and the natural world are being retold. The ceremonies, the offerings of thanks, for the natural produce by which we live, and for the kindness and compassion of our fellow brothers and sisters, are being once again performed.

The change is hard. There is great loss, great pain. There is resistance to change. There is a dark cloud which tries its best to remain hanging over us. But, this will pass. The pain, the suffering and the darkness will pass. So sure are we of this passing, that we are already preparing for the new age. We are already welcoming it into our hearts, and into our community.

The stars, the light beings which represent our ancestors, our guides and our gods, are hanging lower in the sky, many ascending onto the earth to guide and assist in bringing about this change. As we walk the land, we walk alongside them. When we listen, we can hear their guidance in the whisper of the winds. When we make our choices, we can hear their guidance deep within our hearts.

Mother Earth, we are sorry for the neglect we have shown you, for the irresponsibility by which we have lived, by the lack of action we have taken in the past to prevent further damage. As humans, imperfect beings with forgetful minds, we understand that we are here to learn and grow.

We understand that we are here to make mistakes in order to correct ourselves. So as we strive to create a better relationship with you, we will also strive to build a better relationship with ourselves. A relationship built on forgiveness, compassion and understanding.

An understanding of our human limitations, but also an awareness that, deep inside us, is a fountain of knowledge, knowledge collected through the aeons since time began.

I have been shown that when we are still enough to sit patiently at it’s waters, not only we will reconnect with this knowledge, but we will see the reflection of our godlike selves when we gaze upon the waters. At that moment, we will have all the information and awareness to bring this world into a better state of being, one in harmony with you, Mother Earth, and in harmony with all living beings.

Please be patient, we are almost there.

The Dawning Of A New Era

The Dawning Of A New Era

Whispers travelled through the winds, from distant lands, forewarning a great upheaval and coming of a malevolent spirit. A spirit which would spread its energy invisibly among the unaware, bring those infected into a state of illness, and those who can do nothing but look onwards, helplessly, into a state of fear...

A spirit, which rose from a bed of unconscious human actions, and grew with a sense of irresponsibility, among those who preferred comfort to survival. A spirit whose energy could not spread alone, which depended on the low vibrational transference from one being to another. A spirit, which, although brings death, destruction and demise on the surface, has not come to bring suffering, but to bring an end to the old way, and initiate us into the new.


For this spirit, cannot be destroyed with hate, only with love. Love for one another. This war we are fighting cannot be won by dividing and conquering, but by uniting and rising together as one global community. This pandemic cannot be eradicated by industry, force or selfish greed, but by protecting life itself, community and the essence of our very existence on earth.

We are witnessing a time when humanity is waking up to the realization that we are to be led, not by materialism, economy or greed, but by healing, compassion and community. We are not led by politicians, bankers and stockholders, but by healers, doctors, nurses and those who dedicate their lives to protecting the sacredness of life.

We are waking up to the stark reality that everything non-essential must be put on hold. For most people, this brings the harsh realization that their lives have been spent focusing on all that is “non-essential”, leaving little space for what’s important.


If we were all truly living, truly alive and living authentically in harmony with what being human really is, this pandemic would not be bringing about a great change of focus. But instead, it has brought the world to it’s knees. It has brought despair for those who face a year without upgrading their car, a cruise holiday, or an extension on their home.

But it has brought hope to those who dream of a better place for future generations to live. It brings an encouraging nudge towards community, family and living a more simple and self-sufficient life. It brings hope to those who have strove to preserve the beauty of nature and natural wonders of the world, that now people are awakening to the realization that our earth is our true, one provider, and must be protected, as such, at all costs.


We are experiencing a crucial moment in the history of humanity. A repeat of the mythological war between Atlantis and Lemuria, a strive to find balance in a world of rapid technological and engineering advancements. A fight between modern conveniences and survival of human life as we know it. We know from the fall of Atlantis, that ultimately, natural forces are stronger than technological advancement. We know that greedy civilizations may fall, but the earth will recover and grow stronger. We know that we are not greater than life itself.


With all this information, knowledge and awareness which exists within us on varying levels of consciousness, let us take this time to contemplate our future. Not as individuals, but as collective beings, striving towards a better world to live in.

A world for those of us who will live to see the break of dawn, after this moment of darkness has passed, in homage to those we have lost in the process. And for those who will sit around the fire, in years to come, telling tales of their ancestors, and how they faced their own mortality on a global level, and how they used this moment to preserve human communal existence and rebuild a better world, for future generations to come.

Samhain – The Thinning of the Veil Teaches Us To Reflect On Our Own Personal Boundaries

Samhain is upon us, the Celtic New Year, and a time when the veil between the worlds is at it’s thinnest; a time of year filled with tradition, folklore tales and deep insight into the beliefs and rituals of our ancestors. 

In Ireland, it begins with Oíche Shamhna, or Hallowe’en as it is better known by. Our ancestors believed that on this night, the deceased crossed over into our world and walk among us. They began to dress disguised as the dead, in the hope that they would not be recognised as humans by the spirits of the otherworld. A great bonfire would be lit for the whole community, and from that central fire, the fires in each home would then be lit. 

The month of Samhain, which begins on 1st November, marks the beginning of the Celtic New Year. This indicates that the time is upon us to return inwards, a time of rest, reflection and setting intentions and goals for the year ahead. As the life force of the trees and plants return to source, back to the womb of mother earth, so too do we retreat inwards, resting and gathering strength for when the days begin to lengthen once again. 

The thinning of the veil brings to our attention the importance of healthy boundaries in our lives. If you have healing to do around boundaries in your own life, you may find yourself challenged at this time. You may be faced with situations of aggression, or feel as though you are being pushed past your own limits in your work or home life. You may be receiving signs to address this issue in the form of messages, symbols, or unusual events. Although this may all feel overwhelming at the moment, trust that what is being brought to the surface, is done so in order for you to heal and grow. 

Embrace this challenge by taking time to reflect on the boundaries currently in your life. Are you being too lenient in some situations? Does your work-life balance require reassessment? Are there people in your life that bring you a sense of heaviness and disharmony? Setting healthy boundaries is not an easy task, however it is an essential one. Sometimes we allow fear to get in the way, fear of the consequences of standing up for yourself at work or in relationships. However, the greatest consequences come with not setting boundaries at all, creating a toxic internal environment which can lead to anxiety, stress and further illness down the road. 

Our ancestors celebrated the time of Samhain as one of the most important events of the year. There was, however, a bitter-sweet element, similar to what we experience when addressing our own issues around boundaries. On one hand, great fires were lit and important activities were undertaken. On the other hand, many feared the dead that walked among them, hiding their appearance with ghoulish disguises. They treasured the thoughts of sharing the earth once more with loved ones, but also performed rituals to ward of evil spirits. Similarly, working on the theme of boundaries in our own lives can bring emotions of happiness and freedom, but also a great fear of what backlash may come from it.

"The fire represents a force of darkness and light, an element with the ability to grow and expand rapidly, creating heat and life force, and also an element of great destruction, with the combustive ability to destroy anything in it’s path. "

The fire is a wonderful element to work with when establishing, or reestablishing boundaries. It allows us to bring light and warmth to any situation or difficulty we may be facing, and destroy that which we no longer need in our life, transmuting it instead to light energy. It gives us the power to shine a great light from within us, in times of darkness, expanding outwards into the community when required. 

Once you have established your boundaries, the next step is to sustain them. This begins with retreating inwards, strengthening the idea of these boundaries within yourself. Setting intentions and growing the energy of these boundaries from a place of compassion for yourself and for all involved. Once you have sustained the concept of these boundaries within yourself, like a sprouting seed, expand upwards and outwards, expanding this concept into your life and into the areas required. With the inner strength and conviction to sustain them in your life, you will notice a huge difference in your energy levels and emotional state at the end of each day. 

In this way, paying attention to the traditions and teachings of our ancestors can bring great healing and growth into our own lives. Although the rituals and ways of celebrating Samhain may have changed greatly over the course of thousands of years, the central idea remains as relevant today as it was in the very beginning. So this year, as we embrace the festival of Samhain, as the veil thins and our ancestors pass among us, take time to listen, to appreciate and be guided by the wisdom of your lineage and loved ones who have passed over. 

Remember, just as you are as one with the earth, so too are you as one with the teachings of your lineage, with your ancestors who walked before you, and with all those who will follow your footsteps and will walk this path after you have crossed over. The only thing that separates modern day human lessons and experiences and those in the ancient past, is the illusion of time.
