Healing the Child Within

Healing the Child Within

The wounded child within us is always present, waiting for us to turn our attention inwards towards its needs.   Most people have experienced some type of trauma as a child. These experiences may vary, i.e. having your favourite toy thrown in the bin or experiencing detachment through being placed in childcare.  More significant and painful experiences are incurred by  parental separation or divorce, abandonment, rejection or abuse. Whatever the degree of the trauma, the painful experiences are unknowingly repressed by us when we come into adulthood. These psychological wounds remain in our cellular memory during our lifetime – the impacts of the wounds are long lasting.   The wounds of childhood may reveal itself in adult years through: relationship difficulties, trust issues, self esteem, anger issues, physical ailments, depression & anxiety – it may even impact on a sexual level. We...

Merle Tait - Intuitive Art - Wrap up

Merle Tait – Intuitive Art – Wrap up

Merle Tait, Intuitive Art Teacher, facilitated an Intuitive Art & Guide drawing workshop at COSE in September 2019 The contents of the workshop included a guided meditation to attune with our Spirit Guides, helpers and Inspirers. Merle then guided the workshop participants in drawing the foundations of a face portait. With the basic prompts of  the background color of the portrait and then eyes and facial features, we were encouraged to trust in our intuition, holding no perceptions of any expectations of what we wanted to draw, but allowing ourselves to be open and receptive to our intuitive and creative flow.

Merle followed up with passing on Intuitive Readings on each participants Art Work in which a lot of insight was received....

Reflections from our Minister - Rev David Finlay

Reflections from our Minister – Rev David Finlay

REFLECTIONS OF THE MINISTER Over recent weeks have been drawn by Spirit to reflect on the letter , “i”, not in the context of the perpendicular pronoun but in words such as inspired, impressed, intuition, instinct and imagination. All of these words relate to the unconscious energies we sense in our daily lives but also when we are consciously working with Spirit. To elaborate, absolutely everything in the Universe seen and unseen is energy. We are energy and so being a part of the whole energetic picture we sense and react to shifts in this sea of energy surrounding us. On a physical level at times we are drawn seemingly like a magnet to some persons whilst we are repulsed by others without perhaps having any exchange with them other than them having been in the vicinity of our extended energetic...

Power of the Mind to Create and Manifest

Power of the Mind to Create and Manifest

  Whether we realize it or not, our thoughts create our reality and manifest outcomes in our physical existence. Our mind has two levels – the conscious or rational level and the subconscious or irrational level. You think with your conscious mind and what you habitually think, sends messages to the subconscious mind, which creates according to your thoughts. The subconscious is subject to the conscious mind.  All of your emotionalized thoughts, hopes and desires seeds your subconscious. Your subconscious does not work towards proving whether your thoughts are right or wrong, good or bad, dull or productive, the subconscious obediently responds to the nature of your conscious thoughts and suggestions. Having a better understanding of how the conscious and subconscious mind works, will enable you to transform your life. You can then create success with all your goals and endeavours...
