Full Moon Circle + Sound Healing APRIL 27, 2018

The Citadel Full Moon Circle is a monthly gathering that has blossomed from a few friends in a lounge room to a community of like-minded, supportive, authentic men and women.

The Full Moon is the perfect time to stop, reflect and let go of anything that is no longer serving us. When we tap into the beauty of nature, we remember just how wonderous we are. When we stop and sit, we can see clearly who we truly are.

Citadel guides you through a fulfilling evening of mediation, ritual, visualisation, co-creation and chakra sound healing.

Please bring with you:
- Pen
- Paper

The circle is held at The Yoga Space, Manly. Tickets must be purchased beforehand so I know how many I'm holding space for.

Join the Facebook event or buy your ticket here.

Expressing Your Voice + Unblocking Your Throat Chakra

Finding my voice has been the most difficult and painful work I have done so far. Bit weird for a singer right!? Give me a stage and a mic and I'll happily sing - but to speak up and communicate what I need has felt terrifying and deeply painful. I'm not alone. So many people I speak with experience these feelings too. Why is it so hard for us to express and communicate? Why do we find it so hard to be SEEN and HEARD?

Through the work I've done healing this (and continue to do), and working with others, I have found this blockage to be multi-faceted. For me, it wasn't enough receiving reiki, or humming daily, wearing blue crystals around my neck, visualising myself speaking up in various situations, or going to epic sound baths. All these things were wonderful in healing and unblocking, but if I wasn't speaking my truth and expressing myself in daily life, then I would block right up again. I was treating the symptom and not the cause.

The big shifts came when I looked directly at my fear of expression. Why was I creating the block? Why couldn't I speak up? Why were others feeling more important than mine? Why was my opinion not worth being heard? Why did I not want to rock the boat?

This work is deep. Complex. Painful. But I have experienced the most amazing feeling of freedom and empowerment since tapping in and digging deep.

In my one on one healing sessions we work together to understand your unique picture. We get the energy flowing and moving within your throat chakra, you express what is being held in there and you are guided and supported in day to day life to practice speaking your truth so you feel empowered and worthy.

If you would like to find your authentic voice, please get in touch. xx

Holding Space

Holding space.

You've probably heard this term before, but if you're wondering exactly what it means, I've gathered some wisdom from various healers, facilitators and coaches that resonate with me. We practice holding space for each other in our moon circle and we do it everyday when we interact with everyone from friends, family to work mates.

It is a beautiful thing to be truly witnessed and something I am working on within myself at the moment. I am practicing not only holding space for others, but holding space for myself and allowing myself to be seen by others. 


When I feel like I am not going to be interrupted or spoken over, I relax into the moment, feel safe and allow myself to be vulnerable. When we feel safe enough to show our true self to others, that's when we connect on a deep level and the magic happens :)

Here's some tips if you are practicing holding space for others:

The main one for me is presence. Often in conversation when someone is talking we are thinking about what we can say next, making judgements through our ego or getting distracted thinking about the past or future. Try ACTIVE/MINDFUL listening which is being fully in the moment and listening to all they have to say without interrupting.

Don't listen to respond. Listen to understand. 

 

Give people permission to trust their own intuition and wisdom. We know ourselves better than anyone else, so let them be lead to the answer within themselves.

Keep your own ego out of it. Try not to make comments or tell stories that bring the focus back to you or compare what they are going through to something you have experienced unless it is TRULY helpful.

Let go of what WE think they SHOULD be doing, thinking or saying by putting our own judgements and criticisms aside and actually look at them with new eyes and truly see them for who they are, not who we want them to be.

Focus on what you can give to others – based on what you’ve ‘heard’ through practicing active listening. Sometimes, all they need is someone to listen and validate what they are feeling. Other times they might need you to show initiative or help in some way, a hug, a question that can lead THEM to an answer. If you're unsure, just ask them what they need from you in that moment. 

With all of these tips - if you find any particularly challenging, ask yourself why it is difficult for you to do. Do some journaling to flesh it out. When we look and we find the juicy shadowy bits.. that's when things begin to shift. It can be scary as hell to look, but I promise when you're ready and you do, it's worth it.
