“You are much, much more than your body or your mind. You are a beautiful being; immortal, eternal, full of love and light.” – Dr Brian Weiss
Our souls are constantly whispering to us, yet most of us are so caught up in the details and stresses of every day life that we are deaf to its calling. It calls us to love ourselves and those around us. It calls us to be true to ourselves, to acknowledge our inner essence and beauty and live an authentic, meaningful life. It calls us to honour our divine. If ignored it starts to SHOUT. The carpet gets pulled out from underneath us.
One of these “carpet moments” happen when we face a life threatening disease. We stare mortality straight in the eye. We are stripped of the luxury of hiding behind our busyness. The stress and nonsense that we so earnestly hang onto as being important fades into the background. Your soul has the opportunity of taking centre stage. As unique beings we have individual spiritual beliefs and faith that we resonate with. P.S. What is your soul calling for?
The Four Circles of Life
by Cameron Hogg
Our lives naturally unfold through the Four Circles of Life and then contract out again, the way we came in – through the only thing that is important to us in life – LOVE. The Four Circles of Life are symbolic of the incarnation and the involution of our soul’s journey in the physical world.
The First Circle
The First Circle represents the Physical, our body, and begins at conception. The spirit connects with the mother through the physical embryo during pregnancy, and so starts the journey through the material world. Our body follows a predestined biological path over a 70- to 80- year period of physical life, during which time our personality and spiritual infolding happens.

Create a Sacred Space
Dedicating time to yourself, to your inner self, calms that frenetic hamster running around in your mind and creates an opportunity for you to connect to who you are, what you are feeling, what you are needing. It creates a space for refection and gratitude. What better place to do this than in your own sacred space, surrounded by things you love?
HOW do I create my own sacred space?
Create a quiet, sacred space for yourself that belongs just to you. It can be in your home or outside in your garden. Wherever you are comfortable. Place some precious objects in it e.g. a pretty cushion or comfortable chair to sit on, a candle, incense, photos of your family or loved ones, seashells and stones from your favourite holiday. Anything that has sentimental value to you. This is your space in which you get to be you and “let it all hang out”. Spend about 10 min a day in your sacred space connecting to your inner voice. Light a candle or incense and say a prayer or meditate, laugh, cry, scream or rejoice. Dedicate this time and space to YOU.
BEING in the PRESENT Moment
The past is gone. The future is a promise of what might possibly be. The PRESENT MOMENT is your only reality and it is where your power lies. It is in the present moment that we have the power to create. One of the biggest gifts you can give yourself is to be fully present in the moment. That is why it is called the PRESENT. When we stress about what might happen in the future or remain stuck in the past, we miss out on the magnificent blessings that are right in front of us.
HOW do I stay in the PRESENT moment?
- Take a few deep, cleansing breaths. Focus on the air entering and exiting your nostrils.
- Focus all of your attention on what you can see directly in front of you. (A book, plant, pen, your desk). Take in as much detail as possible.
- Now become aware of the various sounds you are hearing at that specific moment. (The birds chirping. A car driving by. The neighbours kids laughing next door.)
- What smells are you aware of? (Freshly mowed lawn, the aroma of your cup of tea.)
- Feel how connected you are to the Earth underneath your feet.
- Be acutely aware of all the sensations you experience through your senses.
- You could also say this affirmation out loud or in your mind “I am fully present in this moment.”
The POWER of BREATH
We all have our very own SUPER POWER at our disposal every second of every day – OUR BREATH. When we are stressed our breathing becomes shallow and our muscles contract as we go into fight, flight, freeze or appease mode. We produce more adrenalin & cortisol. This is perfectly normal in an emergency situation but unfortunately due to our stressful lifestyles this often becomes a permanent state of being. Conscious breathing immediately calms the nervous system and starts to bring the body and mind back into balance.
HOW do I calm myself using my breath?
- Sit comfortably with your back up nice and straight and your feet flat on the floor
- Take a few deep, slow, calming breaths.
- Breathe deeply in and out through your nose.
- Fill your lungs to capacity on the inhale and see your belly expand as you do so.
- Completely empty your lungs on the exhale and observe your belly contract.
- Breathe in for 4 counts
- Sip in some more air
- Hold for 4 counts
- Exhale for 4 counts
- Repeat these steps 6 – 8 times.
This breathing exercise is good for reducing stress, bringing you into the PRESENT moment and assists sleep.
