Isira Teachings

  • The certain path

    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…

  • The importance of living life in openness

    I just had an incredible day of creative development with my team. Feeling deeply fulfilled, I took a wander outside and was instantly greeted by this magnificent magnolia that had opened into full bloom. What a beauty! What joy it brought me to see this creation. It seemed to be the perfect reflection of the day I just had - feeling grateful that I work with souls who share the principles of working in deep…

  • The truth within us

    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…

  • My New Year’s Day Experience

    This is where I spent my ‘New Years Day’. Celebrating cycles, seasons and significant days has been part of our human nature for millennia. Giving our focus and attention on a particular day is something we do. And it’s certainly something that can deepen and enrich our experience. But it can also highlight the gaps between such days. Are we truly living each moment? Do we recognise the newness and wonder of life unfolding every…

  • The power of paying attention

    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 responsibility of happiness

    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…

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

    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…

  • Let your energy flow

    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

    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.…

  • Now that I’ve got your attention

    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 be connected with earth is to be connected with life

    The lifestyle of our modern world is so distanced and cut off from Earth it’s no wonder most people feel so depleted of life. We are living in an insulated, artificial world. We separate the soles of our feet from the ground, and therefore from the soul of Earth. We close ourselves in concrete towers unable to receive the vitality of earth's living towers - the ancient forests and mountains. Without our living connection with…

  • The mind does like to wander, doesn’t it?

    The mind does like to wander doesn’t it? If you’re not careful it will take you all over the place, down dark avenues, into haunted basements, along a cliff edge, round and round a merry-go-round...  Here’s the thing, the mind really does have an endless scope of pathways it can take, so if you’re not in charge of it you can easily end up in places you don’t really want to be. That’s because the…

  • It’s deep connection that fulfills us, not possessions.

    Have you noticed how addicted to material things humans are? Have you ever wondered why? How can we be so driven to seek possessions when the thing we most deeply yearn for is connection?  At the most immediate level the problem is in marketing. We are sold an emotional story - that’s what makes a successful product. Not necessarily the object itself - but the story associated with it. But this only works so well…

  • To Believe or To Observe

    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…

  • No amount of money, oil or gold is worth more than the trees, bees, and healthy reefs

    There are some things in the world we cannot do without - clean air and water, healthy soil, biodiversity and a balanced environment. These are fundamental to life - without these we suffer and deplete life. We in fact put the future life of ourselves and all creatures in great peril.  Other things like capitalism, currency, materialism and the economy are not fundamental forces of nature. We invented them. They are not immutable. We can…

  • The Challenge to be Perfectly Here

    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

    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…

  • One of the things I most love is to wake at dawn and start the day with the rising sun

    One of the things I most love is to wake at dawn and start the day with the rising sun. Some of the latest studies have proven the ancient ritual of meditating with sunrise has more benefits than we might first imagine. Not only is this good for us spiritually, it is good for our overall well being. Here are just a few of the benefits.  Boosts production of melatonin and serotonin. Research shows sungazing…

  • Rediscovering true health

    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…

  • Freedom from the past is available when you show up in the present

    When people discover the level of abuse and challenges I faced in my youth they are usually astounded by the freedom I embody. (You can read my autobiography: Buddha on the Dance Floor, if you’re curious, available on The Awakening Place). But this capacity is not exclusive. We can all cultivate a state of greater freedom. I have written extensively about this in my latest book: Awakening YOU.  Within this book I also give an…
