The Liberation Immersion that changed everything

Today's blog is about the Liberation Immersion Retreat I facilitated at Noosa last weekend, with 6 incredible souls, clients and now - family.

My oh my, how to find the words to truly articulate the beauty, depth, and sacredness of this experience.

It'll be a challenge!

I would like to express some of this experience to my community, to inspire and uplift you this Saturday.

I've been inspired by the idea of Liberation for a long time, and even more in this last 6 months after learning some advanced energetic techniques from my Energy and Soul Medicine Mentor - Melissa Sandon.

Liberation is something that can take place across every level of who you are, and we can also take on the role of the 'liberator', meaning, this can be an experience you feel, and also one you become.

To become the liberator is to tell the absolute truth, firstly to yourself and then to others. This is something I found so admirable in my clients who attended the retreat, everyone committed to utilising this incredible opportunity over four days, to be honest, and share honestly.

From this place, there were moments that were confronting, many moments of silent contemplation at the dinner table and moments of unhindered laughter because things all of a sudden became crystal clear.

There were endless opportunities to share what was on our hearts, as a group, in private sessions and in partnership with another person. This was a mixed gender retreat and it was one of my greatest blessings yet to see men become deeply empowered, by learning to be both strong and vulnerable and to be in support of the women they had just met as if they were in support of every woman on this planet.

We, women, held a container for the men to get to see who they truly are, to see what we see in them and to feel our tender hearts wide open in trust of them. It was revolutionary and continues to unravel me.

Creation was also a key theme and energetic activation. That is, how to become your own creator or creatress in a world that makes you believe you simply cannot.

There were so many layers and veils dissolving minute by minute. Truth-telling was piercing through any illusion that arose, almost instantly.

The truth that we were learning as a living, breathing, expanding organism, was

I AM THE UNIVERSE.

I am the universe creating itself, as the universe has always done. When you connect with the actual vibration of these words, and you realise you are truly made of the same atoms as this universe we are participating in, everything changes.

By the end of the retreat, there was a knowingness that you could feel in the air. The breath was a breath of choice to BRING IT ALL. For us, this meant, to bring all of what life wants to deliver, all of what the soul wants to deliver, all of what the universe wants to deliver.

The breath out was a sharing of this knowingness back with life. It was a commitment to this life and a choice to participate in all it brings, with the heart and mind wide, wide open.

True surrender AND true strength.


Deeply committed to staying in truth, no matter what.

This is the first of many sharings of this experience, in the hope that it touches you deep in your heart and you get to feel the ripples and faith that change is truly possible for us all.

Here’s a casual conversation with Alex, who shared this experience with me.

P.S I'm moving to the Sunshine Coast in September, so please get in quick to arrange your get acquainted call here if you have been curious about exploring Energy and Soul Medicine sessions, so I can get to know you, and you, me.



Keep going.

For many of my clients, and for myself, life is feeling really intense.

I personally believe we are in the thick of the storm, and if your anxiety and insecurity is intensified at this time, if you don’t know what you feel or think, what step to take next or how to help yourself to be ok with change, I want to offer some encouragement, and also some hard truth.

Life can be hard.

Things aren’t always going to go to plan.

People are going to upset you.

You are going to feel out of control. Maybe even crazy at times and like your going backwards.

Your beliefs, desires and truths will change again and again.

You might not like that.

And yet, you must keep going.

By keep going I mean stand at the centre of yourself and feel the bigness of who you truly are.

Feel the stamina of your heart - it’s strength.

Here’s a short video on the topic!


 
 

Why might you be delivered tests and challenges at this time?

In my experience, I have been consistently experiencing a number of challenges, that follows with insight and clarity. It is cyclical, and part of my continual evolution.

Sometimes I feel so fatigued in that challenge that I struggle to get up and show up in my life.

Then I remember that perhaps this challenge has been brought to my attention to support me to step further into myself so I can know myself more. 

The cycles have gotten tighter and clearer, and now it is crystal clear that this is true.

I have surrendered to this, and that feels deeply peaceful.

Even if tired, sad, and uncertain, I will find an energy within myself to propel myself forward. I simply must do that because I value this life way too much to not live it, and it’s just not an option to give up. The only choice is to BELIEVE in possibility.

The best solution to this problem so far - help someone else.

When I feel really stuck in my own personal healing and wounding, I focus even more on supporting my clients, my friends and anyone around me to a space of love.

This opens my heart and reminds me of the bigger picture.

How can you help someone today?

How can you breathe, step forward, and offer your vulnerable open, challenged heart to someone else? How can you make them the most important thing, as a way to make yourself the most important thing?

Every time I step into a space to support a client, I am ALWAYS transformed in the experience. You don’t need to be in the healing space to help someone, everyone has the capacity to help.

Give it a try, see how it feels, and let me know if this inspired you!

P.S If you are based in Sydney/Camden, I recently shared Im off to the Sunshine Coast in September! If you have been feeling like exploring this work, I encourage you to reach out and book in some time to chat as soon as you can! I would love to support you before I leave the area!


Growth, Moving to Noosa and Love

I find growth fascinating, it happens in so many ways. It bends us and changes us and presents us with opportunities that first feel like deep pain and unfairness. Yet every single time I feel the unfairness, or injustice, or perceivably cruelness of life, I am shown the crystal clarity of its wonder and ability to shift me into a new state of knowing myself and the world.

Every. damn. time.

I know for myself, I’m constantly growing and learning new things. Ever expanding.

Even when I don’t want to.

Even when it feels really nice exactly where I am.

Something shifts, I want more. Well, my soul wants more.

She wants more truth, more becoming, more passion, more intimacy, more aliveness.

My current relationship has been a beautiful example of this.

Closeness with someone you truly love can feel like it almost breaks you, in order to GET YOU to your core, to get you focused on what truly makes you happy, to understand what is absolutely your own responsibility, and to shake you awake to honesty on every level.

She also wants simple.

Love feels simple.

Simple allows for easeful change and effective decision making.

Simple allows for self responsibility and forgiveness.

Simple allows for presence to what is right in front of you.

Simple drinks in gratitude.

Here’s a 5 minute chat from me, that delves into where I’m at a little more (apologies, the end got cut off!)..


 
 

So, with all of that, I hope you feel that I’ve been on a journey, one that now feels quite simple.

The next phase on this epic life journey is to move to the Hinterland in Noosa, with my partner, to explore a life deep in nature, and in simplicity.

We want to live light on the earth.

We want to create cool things.

We want to let our love grow.

We want to dissolve meaningless distraction.

I cannot wait.

I have huge soul-led desires, dreams and realities to bring into form AND I’m also ready to move even more slowly and simplistically than ever before.

I wonder what I can create for myself, my clients and this world, from that place?

I recently let my clients know that I’m moving, and shared how incredibly grateful I am for the intimate connection I’ve made in my home town in Camden.  I want to say this AGAIN, because it is the truth - I am BEYOND grateful for every single personal connection, transformation and continuous outpouring of love I receive from the community that has supported my early growth in building a business post Corporate life.

You will never truly know how impactful you have been in my life.

Now, back to the move!

We’re moving to the Sunshine Coast of QLD in September this year, and I have some awesome ideas as to what I would like to create, here’s some off the cuff inspirations:

  • Members area on website for my community to utilise a meditation library, energy activation exercises, and updates/talks from me

  • Weekly Soul Client Cast via ZOOM - questions answered, community spaces to feel connected as you change, to openly share biggest challenges, learnings and life transitions

  • Group online healings via ZOOM and co-creative sessions - spaces to check in and explore your energy from home, with my support, in a collaborative way

  • An app for soul healing - down the track, I would love to create an app that acts as a portal for soul connection, things like how to get out of ‘stuckness’ when it arises, collaborations with other soul living humans, community chat space, event calendar

  • 12 month VIP client journeys - private 1:1 journey with online components as well as in person immersive healing experiences (in Noosa and possibly Sydney)

  • Full day client workshops - one day retreats in Noosa and Sydney

  • Immersion Weekends and Weeks - Retreats in Noosa

  • Speaking on stages around the country

  • Writing a book!

I'll be taking some time off between September and November (not sure of exact timings yet), to spend time in nature, and with each other. This will give me some space to let NEW things blossom within my soul, relationships work and life.

What that means is I would LOVE to call in anyone you may know, within the Camden/Sydney area, to take advantage of having a conversation with me about how I may be able to support you in your healing and life with Energy and Soul Medicine.

I’m still very much focused on supporting women (and now more men) to release anxiety, unlock intuition and expand into true potential. My programs have been expanding and creating almost instant life changes, we are in a gateway of opportunity! If you feel someone needs my support I would love to speak with them as soon as possible to ensure I can support them before the way I work changes, and my location changes.

I have a beautiful free offering that you can access below, and some wonderful recent blogs that you (or someone you know) may love to check out, to get a feel for what I love to share and create with others. You can also email me at amy@shesgrace.org.

How to connect to your soul

In today’s blog post and video, I’d love to give you a little taster into how I first connected to my soul.

Check out the short vid here:

So, how can you connect to your soul and why do it?

The soul feels like home.

The soul feels like truth.

The soul feels like openness.

The soul feels like freedom.

This is pretty much the essence of the work that I’m doing with clients when I work with them on the massage table or online - most are seeking some kind of liberation that allows for true connection. That, for me, is about soul.

In one way or another, we’re exploring through the body, and through your energy field, how to connect to your own soul. 

What I’ve learned over time, is this process happens in different ways for different people, so this will be an experience to simplistically play, to begin working on your connection. Before we get to that, I must absolutely reference my beautiful mentor and teacher Melissa Sandon, who has taught me all I know about Energy and Soul Medicine and connecting to my soul - forever and beyond grateful for this woman.

So, here we go:

Step one:

Get comfortable, and breathe - you can sit in a seat, cross-legged in heroes pose for this. Start to get into your body, by feeling it. Notice your sensations.

Step two:

Start to become aware of two centers of your body - your heart and your power center

This is how - place one hand on your heart, and the other just beneath your navel - and breathe.

Close your eyes and begin to feel the subtle pulsation that moves through you as you breathe, allow your palms to slightly move away from your heart and then draw them back toward the heart, like a pulse or heartbeat rhythm.

Allow the other hand to begin pulsing too, just off the power center point beneath the navel.

Feel the quality of the air between the skin and the palm, notice if it becomes thicker, warmer, fuzzier - notice its rhythms.

Stay inward, eyes closed. Really feel.

Step three:

Repeat the intention, as if you’re whispering this into the center of your heart:

I welcome my soul in my body.

Say this a few times, and notice what shifts. 

It may take a little while to drop into this place. 

See what shifts if you change from open palms on the skin to two fingers pressing into each energy center (e.g index and middle finger at the center of your heart, and index and middle finger at the center of your navel). 

The intention is actually so powerful, by bringing your awareness to what it truly feels like to have the soul welcomed inside you. Even if this doesn’t seem logical, you will create a response in your body. Then it will begin to soothe the logical mind because you would have felt it and therefore experienced it.

This is an experiment. So be patient with yourself.

You are finding what works for you to come home, to you.

It’s powerful and worth it.

Experiment with what this intention means to you, reflect on what it means to house your soul energy, your essential nature, inside the body. Get curious.

I would love to know how this feels for you, reply back with your feedback and I’ll be sure to answer any questions you have.

All the love,

Amy

How to activate your energy and soul at the gym (inspired by F45)

In today's blog post and video, I'd like to explore how we can use our strength and conditioning training, as a way to activate and ignite a new energy within us! This one is inspired by last nights workout at F45 - I am loving this training at the moment!

How to move through your emotions for soul-level success

Today’s blog post is about creating soul level success, and understanding what that actually means.

Wouldn’t it be so beautiful to feel free to go after your dreams, and to live your passions?

Does this feel unattainable for you?

If it does, you are not alone. Many of us feel that there is something blocking us from obtaining enough energy reserves, at this time in our lives, to feel inspired to go after the big dreams - consistently.

So, how do you break the cycle that keeps you stuck, and not believing that you can go after your dreams?

In this recent interview with Brooke from Candour Co, I shared how we can get un-stuck, and more connected to our soul, by tending to the uncomfortable emotion as a gateway to your intuition and energetic expansion (watch full interview here).

In the below 2 min clip, I share how emotions can become a gateway to more of your intuitive self and ultimately, your freedom.



What if tending to, and feeling your emotions, created a soul-level success that feels totally different from society's view of success? A success that is purely defined by your unique inner essence.

It’s so fascinating to watch my clients overcome their limiting and habitual cycles, it feels like a celebration for them.

They have proven to themselves that they can handle the tension of uncomfortable emotion and that the emotion can create an energy flow (‘energy in motion’) that brings them inspiration, passion, and fulfilment - even before anything changes in their external world. Even before they have the dream job, house or partner.

Where do you feel your sticky emotion in your body?

What does it actually feel like? Anxiety in the chest, heaviness or tension? Perhaps a sense of a tremor or vibration across the shoulders?

Take a deep breath, and feel today. Notice what arises and trust that actually meeting that feeling is a gateway rather than a limitation.

We’re growing, we’re coming up against new obstacles and edges all the time. Sometimes this feels like it will never end. When it feels that way, it's time to surrender a little and try something new.

See how it feels to lean in and meet the familiar feeling, with an entirely different, softer, energy today.

You never know what might shift.
