After three trips to France, a holiday in Spain, a visit to Wales to watch the rugby and cheer on France, numerous long lunches and dinners out and special private times together, my Mum, Nicole Maxted, has left these earthly realms and returned to the stars. Thank you Mum for staying with us for that extra year. It was one of the most important years of my life.
My mother was an amazing woman who touched so many people with her joie de vivre, strength and grace. We have just returned from taking her ashes to Larmor Plage her home village on the coast of Brittany. The forecasted rain simply evaporated, and instead of grey we had bright blue skies to bid her farewell on her final journey. Adieu Maman, you are never far away.
It has obviously been a most emotional time for me this past year, most especially the last few weeks. I have been overwhelmed by the love and support so many of you have given me and my family – for that we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. I am touched by so many people who sent a message or simply whispered a prayer for us during this time. I firmly believe that the reason Mum stayed around for an extra year was due to the prayers and well wishes from people around the world. Words seem inadequate to express my deep gratitude to you all. I feel truly blessed.
I’m sure you will understand that I have taken a bit of a break from the hectic schedule of this year to rest and reassess. I am now living on the north coast of Cornwall, in Newquay, and the sea air and cliff walks are nourishing my system and helping me recharge the batteries. Megan Selby (of The Living Voice) and I are taking this time to plan our 2015 so we can bring our sacred sound healing to as many people as possible. If you have any ideas for venues, or if you are part of a group who would love a Sound Bath or Mantra Workshop, please let me know via email or Facebook message. After the success of our retreat in Portugal in October we are hoping to create more of these in the future. You can see photos from Portugal in the gallery tab. We’re planning to do one in Turkey next summer so please start saving your pennies if you fancy being part of it. We’re really hoping to make it to Australia and Bali in the latter part of the year. I’ve been missing my Australian family of friends and I am looking forward to many reunions.
Connecting with powerful healing sounds
Megan and I have been overwhelmed by the testimonials and feedback from people who have bought our Carnglaze Caverns CD, In the Heart of the Earth. People have been telling us how much deeper their meditations have become since listening to it and therapists have been playing it to clients and reporting that their treatments have been so much deeper and powerful. This is so heartening to hear. Our intention was to make a powerful healing sound and it seems to be working. If you would like a copy for yourself or as a gift please send me an email or order it via the website – click on the store button to the left.
Reiki for balance
After a break from giving Reiki healing I am planning more Reiki 1 and 2 attunement days. Please let me know if you are interested in learning Reiki healing for yourself and others. My own Reiki continues to grow and strengthen. I feel it has been key to helping me stay balanced and open during this powerful time in my life.
The times are changing
I am sure many of you have felt the changes we are experiencing on a global level. In September this year I shared some information about this at the Sound Bath in Plymouth. In Tibetan history (the oldest on the planet) there are records of four previous civilisations on earth. Each time they advanced to a critical point and then were unable to continue, either due to natural or human made cataclysms. Apparently 2012 was our critical time. We have now passed through this decision point and have entered uncharted territory. No human civilisation has done this before. Have you seen how the news reports have changed over the past few years? No longer do we have large scale conflict between nations. Now overwhelmingly it seems to be a case of people within nations standing up for their right to self-determination. As a child I remember the world being split into East and West and it seemed that this would never stop. Hard to believe that the Berlin Wall came tumbling down 25 years ago. Now we live in a world where people across the world are constantly in contact via technology and can see, perhaps for the first time that those in neighbouring countries and communities have the same aspirations and desires as they do.
The promise of peace
I see such promise in the coming years for peace and global understanding. Sources such as Kryon and my friend Christopher Power in Brisbane help me keep this perspective and see the light that is entering into our world – the light that I feel has been key to my increased ability to channel Reiki healing.
My clairvoyance has strengthened and I am privileged to have been able to help friends through difficult times in their lives with my gift. Often they have received messages from the other side of the veil from loved ones. This has given them real peace of mind and allowed them to heal old wounds. Seeing how powerful it is I have decided to focus my Reiki on this gift and call it Clairvoyant Healing. If you feel you would benefit from this please do get in touch. You can come for a treatment in Newquay or we can talk over the phone or Skype – distance is not an issue.
Love to you all
I hope we can connect again sometime soon and share some of this abundant light and love that is all around us. I will greet you again in the new year – until then my love to you all – I am so pleased we are sharing the journey of our time together.
