The hidden benefits of misery

My mind is diligently curious, a part of me would like to settle into the cosy religion of comfort and follow the herd. I crave this ‘unquestioning normality’ at times, but I can’t help but pick holes in theories ideas and beliefs, not because I want to break down people’s comfort or dispute everything that presents as a possible navigational system, for life.

Positive thinking- warning ⚠️

A common complaint I hear from new clients is ” ok, I’ve read The Secret” or something similar. I’m manifesting this, or that, goal(s)/dreams daily. I’m doing the affirmations, nothing has changed, what is going wrong?” A few things to consider. -The spiritual path, in my experience, isn’t easy, prepare to get your arse kicked.…

What you say is what you are

How many judgements do you make a day? It’s an interesting experiment to count how many times a day you make a judgement. You will lose count quickly, as Judgements are often automatic and the majority of the judgements we make we don’t really fully agree with, yet leave them unchallenged.  To change my automatic thinking judging mind, I practise…

Body hatred

  The majority of people are experts in self-criticism and self-hatred. I duck for cover at roadrunner speed after  I suggest the concept “acceptance” and how useful it would be to accept how they are right now.   The idea of acceptance is often misunderstood. We often interpret acceptance as giving up, and giving up would…

WAKE UP from the bullshit dream

Shocking? Surely seeing a lady’s vagina or a man's dick cannot be more shocking, than how the government was callously blowing up innocent people in Vietnam?

For the love of God, do not show your vagina, nah blow a kid up we can cope with that. Well, it would appear we have one hell of a weapon between our legs, as it's guaranteed to get an emotional response, and that’s powerful.

I am not a Shaman!!

Many people have said over the years “Alexia, you are a shaman”. I take this as a compliment and leave it as a compliment instead of a definition of who I am, or how I work. In truth, the title sits uncomfortably with me, why?

Shamanism has and continues to have a significant influence on my life, which makes my work undeniably influenced.

I’m in communion with spiritual entities, and different entities emerge into my consciousness depending on the person and their presenting issues. This,  I assume, is unnoticeable to the client and unnecessary for them to be aware of for us to progress with whatever we are addressing.

How to use anger wisely

 I spent years avoiding anger; I didn’t know I was angry, where was my anger? I ate it, drank it, snorted it, burnt on a crack pipe blissfully unaware and painfully numbed. When I stopped stuffing emotion, I started to feel really odd. I spoke to a therapist,  she said, “Alexia where is your anger,…

The story of the Chinese farmer

 In the dance we call life, some things appear too good and some things that appear bad. We look at something that is occurring at the moment, take a snapshot of it, and we make a judgment, but everything is in flow, so what seems to be good, might not be good in the end, and vice versa.  A story…
