Be True to You Reprised

Epiphany (mixed digital media with Light Language) Martha McLachlan 2019

Shakespeare knew a thing or two about the Human condition and psyche. Perhaps one of the most easily recognisable quotations from Hamlet is uttered by Polonius to his son Laertes, just prior to his leaving to go to university.

‘This above all: to thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man. ‘

The question of One’s relationship to Self is brought into sharp focus, as well as the realisation that unless we have authenticity in our dealings with Self, we are masked Liars; steeped in deception of both ourselves and all those with whom we interact. But how to get at the kernel of Truth?

Like peeling away the layers of an onion, it takes courage to lay bare our deeds and misdeeds in all their glory, bone and guts. To have an honest look and poke about in the mire of ego, attachment, deception and expectation that comprises the over-arching adult programming of this human coil. To look closely at the intentions upon which we paved our roads to Hell, as well as the successes that required the sacrifice of others in order to achieve them. But what then? All the muck and gore is laid before us, and we cringe and wince in fear and self-loathing?

Well, perhaps we do, but the key is at this point to process that distaste through the lens of acceptance. It is what it is at the end of the day. No amount of revisionism will change the past. We can simply take stock of it and change the now. The point of Power is now. ‘To forgive ourselves our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us’; for truly forgiveness is Divine.

From the blank slate of self- forgiveness, we can release the Karma, the guilt, the recrimination, the cheating, the lies and deception and deal with ourselves from the standpoint of Mastery and understanding. Understanding of the depths to which we are capable of delving, but staunch in the determination to do better, be better. It is this striving for Mastery and excellence in thought and word and deed that becomes the hallmark of our enlightenment and our deliverance from the tangled web of deceit.

Then in the new Light of day, in the new now moment, to use the tool of this self-awareness and gnosis to make choices that take us away from situations of hurt and contrast, and instead into authentic joy and interactions of Love and bliss. We free ourselves from the suffering and the reverse narcissistic programming of the ‘ultimate victim’. We step into the new dawn of integrity to self and others and with each step taken upon that road to freedom, we truly ‘canst not be false to any man’.

Rise Higher Shine Brighter in integrity and in your Truth

New Beginnings 2


There is a bittersweet saying that when one door closes another window opens elsewhere. The bitterness, I find comes in grieving the door closing and looking backward…not having faith that the view from the new window is immeasurably greater, more beautiful and more wondrous than any scenario left behind.

So why do we cling to the bitterness and dwell in grief?  Because dreams die hardest of all. We have invested much in our creation of the dreams of the past and are loathe to relinquish them and the promise we feel to be still germinating inside of them.  This promise is called HOPE. It is the stubbornest of flames that refuses to go out with the tenacity of life itself.

But if you have ever watched how a fire burns, the flame leaps forward and upward, not backward. What seems to be a tragic ending, is ever a reworking of the dream into a new construct. No one ever truly leaves us, for we are energy and energy never dies. This flame, this HOPE, is the spark of eternal energy within all things that connects us together and makes us ONE.

So take comfort in the passing of the old and bless and release it with love.  You have passed into the smelting cocoon of the darkness of regeneration and are about to be reborn with the most beautiful of wings.  New beginnings and rebirth can be painful, but the beauty and magic inherent in the process of rebirth is that the HOPE is everlasting and our power to create  new dreams is unlimited ❤

Be Passionate

be passionate

People used to tell me that I am too passionate. I care too deeply. I am too open.  I used to wonder why they thought these were bad things, until I realised it was simply their love and concern for me speaking…that and their fear. I refuse to let fear rule.

I am passionate. I get fired up about things. I am intense, full of joy and enormous LOVE. I am also courageous, because that is who I AM and I no longer have any fear ❤  Oh yes, I used to hide my light and my love. I have spent many lifetimes burning at the stake, being hounded and persecuted.  I have had similar obstacles to overcome in this lifetime as well, but overcome I have done  🙂

I AM still standing. I AM here to be passionate, to shake the rafters and the ground beneath our feet.  I AM the love that refuses to be silenced.  I AM the change for which we all are longing.  I AM that I AM and so are YOU ❤

Rise Higher Shine Brighter in the passion of BEing YOU ❤

Love IS ALL there IS

Love Yourself Affirmations

poolak art4Beautiful artwork ny Poolak Art

The following are self-love affirmations for those moments when you doubt or forget how truly beautiful and extraordinary you are ❤ They are written by Dr Joshua David Stone, because why re-write what has already been so beautifully and eloquently expressed.  Enjoy lovely loves!


  • I love and forgive myself totally for all my mistakes, for I now recognize that mistakes are positive, not negative.
  • I now fully recognize that I have worth because God created me, and I do not have to do anything to have it.
  • I now recognize that I am a diamond, not the mud on the diamond.
  • My worth is unchangingly positive because it is a spiritual inheritance. It is not increased by my success nor decreased by my mistakes.
  • I realize now that I have total worth and value as a person whether I learn my lessons in life or not.
  • I now recognize that everything that has ever happened in my life has been positive, because it all contained lessons I needed to learn.
  • I choose to live in the NOW and not hold the past against myself.
  • I hereby choose to approve of myself, so I do not have to go around seeking approval from others.
  • I deserve love because God created me, and my mistakes are not held against me.
  • I realize that everything that happens in life is a teaching, a lesson, a challenge, and an opportunity to grow.
  • I now realize that I am the “I” person, chooser, consciousness, and spiritual being and that this part of me deserves unconditional love at all times.
  • I am the light and not the lamp shade over the light.
  • I deserve love because my true identity is not what I do in life. I am the “chooser” of what I do.
  • I now understand that I am here to learn lessons and grow in life, but if I make mistakes I am still totally lovable and unchangingly worthy.
  • I hereby choose the attitude of being very firm with myself and unconditionally loving.
  • I am the master of my life and I choose to be my own best friend instead of my own worst enemy.
  • I choose to love me as God loves me unconditionally.
  • I now choose truly to understand that I want to be perfect, with the understanding that the mistakes are positive and part and parcel of the growing process.
  • I now realize the level of my true identity being the “I”, the chooser, the person, the spiritual being, the soul. I am a perfect equal with every other person in the world.
  • I now choose to awaken and recognize that it was only the faulty thinking of my ego that has caused me not to love myself.
  • I now choose to undo all the faulty thinking society has programmed into me and replace it with self-love.
  • I choose to recognize that I deserve love and so do other people.
  • I choose to recognize that I am guiltless and sinless, because all mistakes are just lessons and opportunities to grow. Mistakes, in reality, are golden nuggets of wisdom and are positive.
  • I now realize that God does not hold my misuse of free choice against me, so why should I?
  • I love me. I forgive me. I approve of me, and I commit myself from this moment onward to treating myself in a spiritual manner rather than in an egotistical manner. I now fully realize that the way in which I think is the reality in which I live. I have been living in my own self-created hell of faulty thinking. I now choose to and will live in my self created heavenly state of consciousness. It is really that simple.
  • I unconditionally love me because I am a son/daughter of God, and my misuse of free choice or faulty thinking is not held against me.
  • Could what God created not be lovable and worthy?
  • I love me because I am innocent and not guilty.
  • The only thing in this infinite universe that says I do not deserve love is my “ego”. I hereby reject my ego and its false attitude and get back in tune with my true spiritual attitude and self.
  • I now, once and for all, release the ego’s game of “having to do” in order to deserve love and worth. I now fully recognize I have always been lovable and worthy and will always be so.

Creator and Creation


Creativity is often only associated with artists and yet each and every one of us is a ‘creative’ and creation at the very same time.  Every choice we excercise through our free will, shapes us and moulds us into the BEing that we are expressing here on this plain. We create our reality through our choices of actions and reactions, emotions and scenarios that we choose to play out.

As Shakespeare aptly wrote ‘All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players’….We agree the cast and script before we incarnate and after that we indulge in the most glorious ad lib.  We come to crossroads and choose branches of infinite possibility on the decision tree we call life.  We cry tears of grief and joy, we laugh and love and hate. We weave a rich tapestry of singular beauty and complexity until that moment when we snip the thread and return to the collective love of the ONE source.

What a production of such awe inspiring magnificence and beauty ❤ So, if you have ever been wondering what your life purpose is?  It is to create, to LIVE, to express freely the things that make you a unique and incredibly beautiful creation. It is to step into the role of conscious creator in your life and weave the threads of your song into the symphony of the universe. For without you?  This world would never be as beautiful nor so vibrant.

Rise Higher Shine Brighter as the Creator and the Creation

LOVE is all there is

Have Courage

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves,
Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people will not feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It is not just in some of us;
it is in everyone

and as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give others permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
our presence automatically liberates others.”

~Marian Williamson, “A Return To Love”

Rise higher shine brighter in the freedom to LOVE

Love is the Liberator
