The certain path

by Isira | Published: February 20, 2020

Why do we need a path? What draws us to a path? The moment we are conceived we embark on a journey of potential. The potential within us fills us with vision: a vision of what we are to become. We are told that our highest potential is infinite joy and love; that is the fruit that waits to ripen. As we begin to see this more clearly we become painfully aware that where we…

This is nature... resilient.

by Isira | Published: January 29, 2020

This is regeneration - life continues. However, we seem to forget that things don’t all just happen over night. It took thousands and millions of years for whole habitats to evolve. And here in Australia we have lost entire habitats to the fires to date and the fires are still raging. Many species are now considered extinct or threatened with extinction. We have lost more than 7 million hectares, with nearly 500 million animals killed,…

A compelling approach to climate change

Published: January 22, 2020

We seem to forget that we are all here, living on earth. This is our home, yet we are destroying it. This fact is clear. The jury on ‘climate change’ is out. Earth is showing us how things are. Nature is crying out to us and telling us that we have to change.  Scientists also are making this point clear: “we are already experiencing the impact of climate change and environmental tipping points.” We may…

The truth within us

by Isira | Published: January 21, 2020

Namaste, Within the heart and mind of each of us there is a deep desire (even if secretly!) to attain the quality of peace, freedom and love. We aspire to reach the pinnacle of our expression as a human being - alive with spirit, feeling home and at one with creation. Whether we want to refer to this as Enlightenment, to know Truth or simply to be fully alive, it is a goal worthy of…

The power of paying attention

by Isira | Published: December 31, 2019

Namaste, At the heart of everything I speak about and offer is the invitation to enter into deeper awareness: to become living awareness. The invitation beckons you to bring all that has been unconscious into the light of your conscious Self. In essence this requires attention: to be present in the moment - to pay attention to the streams of thoughts and feelings that interrupt your ability to simply BE present. Without first developing this…

The 4 Pillars of Lore: A universal map for our times.

Published: December 16, 2019

From the time I was a young girl I experienced and observed the traumas of disconnection. I could see that many of the people around me were so disconnected from the land, from the environment surrounding them, that it was like they were living in their own diminished bubble. That bubble was also filled with layers of trauma and emotional conflicts that prevented them from being truly connected with the people around them. This was…

The responsibility of happiness

by Isira | Published: December 11, 2019

Happiness is my motivation... and it is yours too. I do what I do because I want to share happiness. I do so because I have true happiness in every moment. And I know that this happiness is within us all and at the heart of every person’s quest. The desire for happiness makes us all the same. And if you are to consider your motivations in every moment, if you look a little deeper…

I have suffered violence first hand, more than once.

by Isira | Published: November 25, 2019

I have suffered violence first hand, more than once. I was raped and nearly murdered. I am just one of a multitude of women around the world. It is estimated that 35 per cent of women worldwide have experienced either physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence or sexual violence by a non-partner (not including sexual harassment) at some point in their lives. However, some national studies show that up to 70 per cent of women…

If we really want to live in Truth we need to be prepared, because everything that is false will have to be dismantled first.

by Isira | Published: November 23, 2019

If we really want to live in Truth we need to be prepared, because everything that is false will have to be dismantled first. This premise underlies all change. Whether personal or collective - the old must go for the new to be born. Why then are we afraid of this process? We have been taught to fear change, to fear disruption. But the reality is, we can’t avoid this. This is the fundamental nature…

Our leaders need to know that deflection and avoidance will not work anymore.

by Isira | Published: November 16, 2019

Our leaders need to know that deflection and avoidance will not work anymore. Our leaders need to know that our eyes are OPEN. We are awake to what is happening. We SEE them. We SEE what they are doing, what is happening, what is being done and what is not. And we are saying - WE ARE NOT LOOKING AWAY. We are saying to our leaders, to those in power, you must open your eyes,…

Let your energy flow

by Isira | Published: November 7, 2019

As you most likely know, everything is energy! All the events that occur in our lives and the lives of others are interactions of energy. Our entire experience is made possible because of the fluctuations of this great field of energy we call life.   The part of this energy that we have come to know as ourselves is often vibrating at different levels. Our whole mental state is in fact influenced by the different…

Your habits will either wake you up or keep you asleep

by Isira | Published: November 6, 2019

Your habits will either wake you up or keep you asleep. It’s not like you’re just a jack-in-the-box waiting for some mystical force to open the lid. You don’t just spring into consciousness - one minute asleep and the next you’re all enlightened. It’s an incremental journey. And that process builds momentum over many years of habits and events. Eckhart Tolle didn’t just suddenly wake up - he fertilised his mind for many many years.…

Water is life.

by Isira | Published: November 5, 2019

The level of complacency in big business and government around our water resources seems incomprehensible. Here in Australia, we are in an extended severe drought. Entire towns have run out of water or are just about to, and yet as a nation we have not given this the attention it needs or deserves. This is not just ignorance, it is negligence. The sad truth is - most of us know this but feel helpless. We…

To free yourself from anxiety, you must restore trust in your self

by Isira | Published: October 30, 2019

Anxiety and depression are on the rise. The early years of the 21st century have witnessed a worldwide epidemic of poor mental health and related illnesses. But while depression is the condition most will associate with mental health issues, anxiety disorders tip the scales. Globally an estimated 284 million people experience anxiety, making it the most prevalent mental health or neurodevelopmental disorder. Around 62% of those suffering from anxiety are female. Amongst the various forms…

Today is a significant day

by Isira | Published: October 26, 2019

Today is a significant day. Today, the sacred rock - Uluru - was reinstated as the sacred place it is: as a place of ancient, historical and current relevance. She is truly a center: of power, of ancient lore, creation laws, a universe of past present and future dreaming. She is the sacred ground of our First Nation people, of our ancestors, past, present and future. She is the creation field, a source of anchored…

Now that I've got your attention

by Isira | Published: October 19, 2019

This is an attention seeking post!  Well, that is actually the truth. However, the question is a matter of attention for and within you. The more you can master your own attention the more you will master your own life experience. This is why I teach breathing methods as a foundation for awakening - it is the easiest and most direct way to strengthen the quality of attention.  Benefits of Attention:  When you develop your…

To Believe or To Observe

by Isira | Published: September 25, 2019

Am I expressing Truth or belief? As we grow in consciousness we become active seekers of Truth. In the quest to know and understand Truth, interesting questions arise. And, many seekers come to this same enquiry: Am I expressing truth or belief? One enquirer recently asked: ‘My partner and I have been discussing beliefs and thoughts... I was saying something that felt to be from my heart, to be a truth from somewhere higher than…

The disturbance of the world is a cry for inner connection.

by Isira | Published: September 22, 2019

We have been so deeply conditioned to focus on external events that most people don’t realise all the problems we are facing are the result of a deeper underlying cause.  The environmental crisis, political instability, mental health epidemic, systemic corruption... every crisis we are faced with is a symptom of profound disconnection. Disconnection from our true self. Disconnection from nature. Disconnection from each other. Disconnection from creation/ creator.  If we go to the root of…

That is not a life. This is

by Isira | Published: September 19, 2019

What a dilemma we are in. We all recognise the destructiveness of our lifestyle - yet most struggle to break free of the consumer cycle. Humans are addicts. Self destructing ones. The irony is we know it, but we still deny it, ignore it or blatantly continue it.  WHY?? Because we have emotional attachment to whatever is familiar. Why do you think advertising agencies bombard us from every direction with emotional campaigns that convince you…

This is us... our world. All in the name of convenience.

by Isira | Published: September 4, 2019

We are literally swimming in the toxic soup of our own shortsighted, irresponsible, filthy greed. But the greatest tragedy is not just that we are doing this to ourselves, but that we are doing it to ALL life on earth. We have been sold the story (and all it’s products) of convenience. But why has this been such a vigorous, successful sweep across the world? Why are we so attached to ‘convenience’? And why are…

This is our home. Our world is burning.

This is not just OUR home. Millions of lives are being killed. Our world is in peril. This is our wake up call, not for our own spiritual awards, but for the sake of all life on Earth. THIS IS GOING TO BLOW YOUR MIND!! The Amazon blaze in Brazil is actually only third in the world in wildfires over the last 48 hours. READ THAT AGAIN… 3rd!!

Awakening and Regeneration

by Isira | Published: August 16, 2019

From the time I was a young child, I recognised that the people all around me were deeply disconnected and that this severance of spirit was directly related to the collective conflicts reverberating around the world. Clearly, this disconnection was the root of great suffering and conflict.  As I grew to be able to articulate what I saw and understood I recognised the need for a great awakening – not just within individuals – but…

Violence is escalating throughout the world, particularly at a societal level.

by Isira | Published: August 14, 2019

Violence is escalating throughout the world, particularly at a societal level. Take the record of mass murders in the U.S. As of July 31, 2019, 248 mass shootings have occurred in 2019 (alone). This averages out to 1.2 shootings per day. In these shootings, 979 people were injured and 246 died (for a total of 1,325 victims). There have been more than 110 mass shootings in the US since 1982, according to investigative magazine Mother…

The Challenge to be Perfectly Here

by Isira | Published: August 7, 2019

One of the greatest challenges humanity faces is to let go of what we THINK creation is and allow ourselves enough curiosity and openness to SEE existence as it is. However, this is not just a challenge –it is critical if we are to regain a conscious response and avert impending planetary and social disaster. Letting go of what we THINK is key to our ability to respond with greater insight. It is only when…

A very human, deeply spiritual need

by Isira | Published: July 3, 2019

When we take a close look at our most inherent needs we discover that, other than food and shelter, our most common need is love – to love and be loved. We only have to look at our hopes and fears for confirmation of this. Just scratch the surface of our beings and we find one of our biggest – the fear being alone. This runs not just at the surface of our humanness, but…

Rediscovering true health

by Isira | Published: June 4, 2019

We live in a fast-paced world and we all know that this can have detrimental effects on our health and well-being. Stress and illness can result if we allow ourselves to be swept along with the frenzy of life. But it doesn’t have to be this way! Leisure is still one of the most vital factors for a life of healthy well-being. One of my favourite regular activities is to take a walk along the…

No other but Self

by Isira | Published: May 7, 2019

At the heart of all I share is this one constant truth - that there really IS only one Self - the one life - and that each of us is an aspect of this one.However, according to most peoples experience, and at the most immediatelevel, there is an apparent struggle to recognise the relevance of each‘individual’. I have also stated that liberation and/or awakening is not about an isolated individual or for the individuals…

Blessed be the Little Things

by Isira | Published: April 2, 2019

Faced with a rapidly changing world it is not unusual that many seekers still get stuck on the big things: the challenges we face personally, the goals that appear unattainable, the critical state of the world – so much needs to be done. As a consequence, I am used to seeing many seekers caught in a trap of their own mind’s defeat. This is a natural outcome when the mind spends so much time thinking…

What Is Truth?

by Isira | Published: March 30, 2019

Everything in the universe, by its own nature is truth. It is as it is. How simple and peaceful life can really be when we comprehend this. Yet the human nature seems to want so much to define and make concrete concepts of what is ‘true’ or ‘false’. This is at the core of dualistic perception and is the basis for a great amount of our conflicts. As such we live in a world of…

Is Enlightenment Desirable?

by Isira | Published: February 5, 2019

I raise this question because it seems evident that the idea of a rift between ‘worldliness’ and the ‘spiritual journey’ is still very much alive. Many people experience the same conflict: the notion it has to be one or the other. Most people feel so deeply trapped in the worldly cycle that they can’t help but recognise the suffering it causes them. This, of course, generates a very powerful desire to be free of this…

Why are we always seeking?

by Isira | Published: December 21, 2018

If what we truly are and what we seek already is – if our true nature is already the liberated Self – then why do we ‘need’ to do anything – why are we always seeking? Does this question sound familiar to you? It certainly is a question that I have heard on many occasions – and it is a question worth exploring and understanding more deeply. It is a question that may lead us…

Why the story matters

by Isira | Published: November 30, 2018

Those who are wandering the spiritual path are well aware of the framework of the ego. Put simply, the ego is a collection of stories we have become attached to. So attached, in fact, that the real sense of self – and life – is lost under a constructed identity. But these stories shape our lives. They determine either our health and well-being or demise, so it is a worthwhile and important area of examination;…

Wake up and be conscious

by Isira | Published: October 29, 2018

Do you often feel like your life is out of your control? If you answer yes to this, which if we are honest, most people would, then you may be looking for: consciousness! Most people live life day in day out feeling like a mouse in a wheel that they have no control over. Our world lives in such a fast pace and high demand to fulfil the roles that society insists on that most…

The challenging times we are living in

by Isira | Published: October 5, 2018

Namaste, In programs I have frequently referred to the fact that we are currently in times of great challenge - individually and collectively. There are great forces at work - all as an orchestration for our evolution. This means many are being faced with intense challenges - all of which ultimately serve to expose whatever is misaligned with Truth, and to bring consciousness to those parts of the self that are to be evolved into…

Nature – a place of awakening

by Isira | Published: September 28, 2018

At the heart of all life, deep in the natural order of our world, is an inherent power and presence. It is unquestionable. Where life abides in its most natural state, there is a flow, a pervading stillness and ceaseless vitality. This is why I speak often of the human need to be connected with nature. Not only is it essential to us – for it is the very source of our life – but…

Tools of growth

by Isira | Published: August 21, 2018

Fundamentally, negative feelings are an inner signal for us – alerting us to the fact that we need to change the way we are approaching our life situation. And this can happen even when we have positive focus in our life. Why? Because we are constantly growing and must continually expand the way we think and respond to life. That means even with positive thinking we may be approaching a situation with an out-moded model…

Health, re-discovering our whole self

by Isira | Published: April 18, 2018

Hello everyone, One of my favourite regular activities is to take a walk along the seafront. It’s a leisure that most of us enjoy, but many of us can’t seem to achieve. Why? We either feel simply not well enough or live a life of denying ourselves such wholesome activities, in spite of being aware of the simple values a small stroll and fresh air can bring us. One of the locals I pass along…

At the heart of Change

by Isira | Published: March 28, 2018

Our world, humanity, society and our own individual lives are subject to constant change. And now, more than ever it seems, is a time of very great change. Large movements of populations, climatic and geophysical upheavals, global unrest and national conflict are great challenges to us all - individually and collectively. At times like this it can seem as if everything we are and everything we have is either being, or under threat of being,…

What has money got to do with spirituality?

by Isira | Published: February 5, 2018

Let’s talk about money. It’s a topic that most often hits an uncomfortable chord. Especially when it comes to spirituality. Isn’t it worth wondering why? Why, when money is one of the tools we have adopted within our life? In fact it is one of the most central tools that occupies us every day and is intrinsically woven into every experience we have. First of all, let's take an objective look at this thing we…

Truth - Beyond the Quest of a Path

by Isira | Published: January 17, 2018

The quest for the true meaning of life is as old as humanity. Throughout the ages we have been driven by a deep yearning to know and understand what life is really about. We have asked: What is THE Truth? What is the True nature of life? Why am I here? What is my purpose? What does all this REALLY mean? What is my True path? All of these questions are driven by the mind…

From Relationships to Relating

by Isira | Published: December 5, 2017

The single most vital key that will provide the way forward for a better life and a better world is relating. To understand this more deeply it helps us to recognise core issues that are manifested due to the misperception of separation: the perceived disconnection from spirit/source. This sense of disconnection underlies EVERY issue we endure as individuals and as a human race. We feel dislocated in ourselves and in life. We have a distorted…

The place where true fullness begins

by Isira | Published: September 4, 2017

The ‘fullness’ we seek in life is not found in the business and fullness of our world. The resource for our true fullness is found in the gift of emptiness. This emptiness that the sages have spoken of for eons is really not something so mystical and unattainable. However it does require us to go to a different place to meet it. It requires us to go to the cave: the cave of consciousness. It…

What exactly is awakening?

by Isira | Published: September 4, 2017

Awakening has no exact definition. This is because Awakening is about a process of shifting from the unconscious states of the ego driven identity to a conscious and experiencing state of Self as the eternal awareness and Oneness of all life. It is also because it is a state in which we transcend definition and become pure being. In the ego driven state a person experiences life dominantly through the constructed identity and perception of…

Truth

by Isira | Published: September 4, 2017

The quest for truth is as old as humanity. Throughout the ages we have been driven by a deep yearning to know and understand what life is really about. We have asked: what is THE Truth? What is the Truth of my life? What is the True meaning of life? What is the True path? Interestingly all of these questions are driven by the mind. This very motion is linear and assessment oriented which means…

The sexual human

Those of you who pay any attention to the media tabloids would be well aware of the vast array of articles on the topic of sexual offences. Although it is constant and common to hear of these issues in our society it is very rare for us to take a closer or deeper look at why we see so many issues of perversion, violation and obsession. Fundamental to all human issues is the inherent lack…

Self-awareness and the power of beliefs

by Isira | Published: September 4, 2017

Opinions begin to shape us from the very beginning of our lives. Based on our early interactions with our families, teachers and others, we all develop generalisations about who we are and what our relationship to the rest of the world will be. These generalisations – a collection of stories, beliefs and identifications – form the basis of our own sense of personality and our way of interpreting the world around us. Becoming aware of…

The power to respond

by Isira | Published: September 4, 2017

You will have noticed how the world is seemingly being assailed by constant reverberations of fear at the moment, and that sound is almost impossible to ignore. Fear is perpetuated by the media, making us think about it every day, and we keep it going ourselves whenever we share our concerns with others. So in spite of our spiritual endeavours, we too are threads of fear in this tapestry of world upheaval. Such fears have…

Beyond fear and suffering

by Isira | Published: September 4, 2017

That our life is filled with challenges is natural: for life is a process of growth. All growth involves change. Along with change we experience a sense of tension as our being goes through a transition from one acquired state to another. This applies at every level; physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. And this involves what we call pain. Actually, ‘pain’ is simply a current and state of energy that corresponds with this transition. Yet…

A feminine emergence

by Isira | Published: September 4, 2017

You, me and every other thing in the universe is made of the same stuff. Energy. Everything we are, everything we experience, express and do is the result of a dynamic play of energies. Within our humanness is the dynamic of two fundamental polar energies: masculine and feminine. Like positive and negative currents, their interaction is at the very core of all life force – the spark of life. This dynamic interaction is constantly in…

Balancing emotions

by Isira | Published: September 4, 2017

One of the common definitions for emotions is ‘energy in motion’. I’d like to expand on that. This energy in ‘motion’ arises as a result of us sensing and expressing. Therefore emotions are the moving energies of our being and through which ultimately life as a whole is being sensed and expressed. If we look deeply into what we are, we discover nothing but energy. Consciousness is energy. Mind is energy. Form is energy. The…

A change in leadership

All of us have been watching our world shaking and trembling under the tyranny of unconscious egoic measures and the weight of a few corrupt leaders. Perhaps now we are being shaken into awakefulness. It seems that, not only are we recognizing the need to wake up and to change our views but that we, the people, need to command leadership that truly represents a broader vision and common ground for a world of greater…
