Hi there, I am sitting in the Qantas lounge at the Perth Domestic Airport waiting for a flight to Darwin. And waiting a bit more. The flight has been delayed by two hours.
In my youth I would likely have been annoyed or at least felt mightily inconvenienced by the change of plans, but these days I try not to have any expectations. What no expectations? I find that expecting something to happen or holding onto a specific outcome doesn’t allow for the Universe to provide us with amazing experiences, chances to learn, and to meet others.
People often bandy about the saying ‘go with the flow’ without truly comprehending its meaning. Being fluid and flexible really does offer us the opportunity to be in sync with the Universal flow and therefore to be a conscious co-creator of our own destiny.
We can always have a general plan of what we want to achieve, don’t get me wrong, setting a goal gives us a direction in which to travel, but setting the journey in stone limits us to experience those interactions which fit our self-imposed barriers and learned behaviours.
So I am revelling in the flight delay which has given me some much needed time to catch up on emails, to write some posts and connect with others. I also have no expectations of my journey to a remote Indigenous community in the Northern Territory to share in the experience of the land and the wisdom of the women and men who live there.
i hope you too can along some serendipity, happenstance or coincidence to enter your life and to see it as the gift with which it is given by the Universe.
Spider, the ancient bringer of messages
She came forth to share language in the written form
Scripts, alphabets, symbols and writings of all shapes and patterns
Her intricate web directs the messages far and wide
Spreading the knowledge to all who take notice
From humble beginnings came greatness.

I have only just seen the article written in the Avon Valley Advocate newspaper about the unveiling of great-great uncle Hugo Vivian Hope Throssell’s statue in Northam.
It was Anzac Day 2015, Saturday 25th April and my brother Rohan, his wife Laure and their two sons Mikael and Aston and I travelled to Northam an hour’s drive from Perth before the dawn. After the service we all shared breakfast courtesy of the RSL (Returned Serviceman’s League) and went to the unveiling ceremony following a walk down by the Avon river.
Here is a photograph of Hugo in uniform.

I Once Met a Tree – Ancient Moreton Bay Fig Tree
Oh beautiful Moreton Bay fig tree, abstract roots forever searching and spreading like your canopy which reaches the clear blue sky of a Perth winter’s day.
I met you on this beautiful crisp, cool day standing majestically in King’s Park, guarding ever so lovingly. Your strength and your sheer size drew me to you. Your handsomeness and ugliness at the same time captivated me.
I felt the roughness of your bark hiding a gentle and loving soul beneath, protected from life around you.
I shared in your breath and your grounding energies, your silent intensity helped to centre and balance my soul.
Thank you for your timeless beauty and your solidarity. I was so glad I met you.
Saturday morning – how beautiful to have the privilege of playing the angelic sounds of the crystal singing bowls and a other instruments for a group of 16 aware women.
Thank you to Eva for running the sessions once a month in her wonderful home and inviting me to play.
I didn’t think two hours would pass so quickly – firstly talked about my journey and spiritual development in general, taught a protection technique to ward against other people’s negative thoughts and emotions in the quantum field/sea of consciousness in which we dwell, and answered many questions from the ladies interested in their spiritual progress
Many had never heard of the singing bowls before and were blown away by the experience. One said all her pain was gone on finishing the session, others said they could feel the energy swirling or coming into one ear then the other, and most felt more physically relaxed and emotionally calmer.
I was genuinely surprised when I received these wonderful gifts of a balsam in full bloom, some chocolates and a beautiful Willow statue of Love as I had offered my time freely.
What a beautiful start to the weekend.
Well, it is going to be a huge day getting everything ready for the annual Wesak Festival – Celebration of the Buddha – tomorrow. Traditionally the spiritual observance of this day is on the Taurean full moon usually occurring in May, however we were guided to hold it on a Monday long weekend public/bank holiday (It is ‘Western Australia Day’) which is the offical United Nations Wesak Day.
It has become quite apparent as to why we were to bring forth the combined divine energies of the Buddha and the Christ now in concert with the wisdom and love of the Ascended Masters and the world and cosmic hierarchies. The land and people of Nepal have had a very challenging month and the whole area is in desperate need of re-balancing, calming and unconditional love to help heal and renew.
This trauma will be affecting the sacred Wesak Valley in Tibet where the ceremony is conducted on the Etheric plane. All who can raise their consciousness can attend in their spiritual bodies through meditation and take part in receiving the blessings of the Buddha and love from the Christ to assist with their personal spiritual development for the coming 12 months.
We also make the day a non-religious sharing of love, compassion and consideration for the Earth Mother and all her inhabitant, plants, animals and minerals included. Many healing sessions including sound, prayer, mantras and guided visualisations are conducted to bring about self-healing for all attendees, distant healing for all those written on the healing hearts, and world service work.
Maybe you would like to join us in a moment of meditation or contemplation sometime during the day Monday 1 June – 10am WST Australia which is 8 hours ahead of UTC time.
love and blessings to all.
My dreamcatcher is going to be used to create and to manifest. Different crystals and objects will be placed in the pouch in the centre and various prayer ties will be added to the surround to bring forth that which I wish to bring into my life.
I wanted to share the divinely inspired and spiritually guided sacred object in the form of a dreamcatcher I am honoured to have made during the advanced shamanic training I am doing.
The beauty of the soft tones and white cockatoo feathers reminds me of the goodness and Light within myself and every living being.
It embodies the energies of the four directions and the elements they represent – the EAST, place of AIR (I have chosen a TEKTITE which brings wisdom from outer space) bringing connection with spirit, creativity and clarity of the mind;
the SOUTH, place of EARTH (I have used a horse tooth from North American Indian lands ?Navaho tribe) honouring the custodians of the land, the Noongaar people in WA, the standing people (the trees), all the animals and the ancestors;
the WEST, place of WATER (I have chosen some shells) bringing cleansing rains, salt water to clear the emotions, wise ones of the seas the whales, dolphins and dugongs who hold the records of humanity,
the NORTH, the place of FIRE (I have used some lava) bringing the sacred flame to eliminate negativity and burn up that which no longer serves us, the creatures of the desert, the obsidian glass born from volcanic action for protection; and
the CENTRE, place of BALANCE and SPIRIT (represented by the sacred pouch and clear quartz crystal), I honour Mother Earth below and Father Sky above and call upon guidance from my shamanic guides who love me unconditionally AHO.
With great respect for my teachers Mark and Sue from One Tribe, thank you.
