...on my 36 Birthday, I sobbed myself to sleep, curled up in fetal position yet again, feeling lost, confused, empty, and in despair. The next day, 10 years ago today, I had a date with a guy I’d met a month earlier at a personal development weekend. He was flying in from Queensland for overnight business, and invited me to go for a drink. I decided to dress for dinner, and we stayed in each others company until 6 am when he went to meet his business partner for breakfast, and I drove home thinking what the frick just happened...

Have you ever noticed how seemingly irrationally people close to you can respond to change? While change can come about in a number of ways including circumstances seemingly outside our control, it's the conscious choice type I'm referring to today. While there can be a number of different Characters who play a part in change, here are three worth considering (and yes, I do make up words sometimes): the Changer - the person making a conscious choice to change themselves in order to bring about new and improved conditions in an area (or areas) of their life, and who take...

This post is not about inflection sensitive sentences, like the one in the title that has seven ways of being interpreted depending which word we emphasise, but it does say something about adding value, beliefs affecting our behaviour, and being honest. In a recent post, Liar liar, pants on fire, I briefly wrote about the epidemic proportion of lying, and the benefit of being a truth seeker. In a similar fashion, taking anything from anywhere or anyone, that is not rightfully ours, is also an epidemic of sorts. The act of stealing is very telling of our current ideas or...

Universal Truths, like the one in the first part of the title, only become truths by being tested and measured... personally. From the pages of The Four Agreements, by Don Miguel Ruiz, my Clients/Members, know me to repeat this adaptation regularly, "Believe nothing I say!" The remainder goes, "but listen carefully, test and measure." Listen carefully to me means asking the question, "does this feel right/true, to me?" Even though I share ancient wisdoms, universal laws and principles, with Members, I only truthfully call them this because I have personally tested and measured them. I encourage others to do the...

Glad you enjoyed it Alicia. Great observation with Harmony. Perhaps this is how we all practice lying, and justifying it too - it's a way to avoid interactions and activities that we deem undesirable or unimportant somehow!?! If you've discovered any particular way or technique to address this, and would like to share, please do...

Almost 10 years ago, sometime close to meeting my life partner Anthony in October 2oo5, he introduced me to the concept of always telling the truth i.e. never telling a lie - not a big lie, a small lie, a noble lie, or a white lie (or any of the 32 types of lies available). Firstly, it was astounding to me to contemplate this and discover that I had learnt to lie, and that a lie is a lie no matter the type, or the size. I was also bemused by how much I was able to justify lying in... Continue reading

Hi Alicia, I'm sprucing up some of these older blogs and came across your comment. My apology for not acknowledging it earlier. I recall speaking about this activity at the time, given our relationship, but worthy of noting again, and here. It feels like yesterday that I remember you doing this, yet almost 4.5 years have transpired since. Quit amazing! I have had other clients do the same in terms of producing a list of positive feelings. It's a terrific aid, in the early days, to assist select another feeling to the negative one that has become so easy to indulge from regular use. :)

Post by Karen Ahl Thank you Universal Truths!!! So simple and an opportunity for me to reflect for just a moment. I see a miracle as the occurrence of something I wished and hoped would occur because I expected it to occur (consciously or unconsciously). And it doesn't have to seem big or massively significant (oh but it is). Recent miracles I set out (and expected) to experience included: a personal best with my fitness training ~ tick an awesome new neighbour ~ tick win some cash ~ $50 on a scratchie so therefore tick (I expect more soon) :o)...

Whenever you've having a "so-and-so hurt my feelings" moment, and you are committed to a life of "self-awareness" (emotional and spiritual intelligence), these 5 reminders may come in handy. Remember no one owns a remote control to our emotions. We choose our feelings in reaction to external events, until we become aware of, and choose them in response to, our internal thoughts (our stories) about them. When we change our stories, we change our feelings. Recognise that our emotions are our guidance system alerting us to anchors or triggers we've set up in our psyche (patterns of thoughts generally constructed... Continue reading

From a metaphysical perspective, and the aspect most relevant to me at this time, the probable cause of migraines is, “Dislike of being driven. Resisting the flow of life.”1 In my days of ignorant slumber, headaches and migraines were almost routine. I could get a headache for five out of seven days each week with migraines occurring every few weeks. Not to mention the neck and shoulder pain and other ailments I had going on, but I’ve mentioned these in other blogs so won't go there again today. While it took me a few years to ultimately reduce migraines to... Continue reading

Beware the get fixed quick offers. They can be as misleading as the get rich quick offers. More so however, beware about developing a misconception about getting fixed quick and getting rich quick. The information is generally quick and easy, be it a way to make money through a multi-level marketing organisation (yes, even when you believe in the product you're selling 110%), hedge funds, day trading, the one minute manager, the four hour work week, or a practical four step process like Awareness + 1,2,3. The information is quick and easy. However,... ...our journey, or the time it takes... Continue reading

In the moment we begin to transform an area of our life, two things seem to happen. One, we almost instantly become the expert with a head full of new information, concepts and ideas. And two, we want everyone to come on the journey with us. Can you relate..? I find this is especially true when it comes to soul transformation. The style of development that ultimately leads us to an understanding of our passion, purpose, and unique reason for existing. Two things I've recognised, while on my decade plus journey with Anthony to transform the five major areas of... Continue reading

If you’ve ever done depression, as I have, you may remember the days of thinking, “I’m not sure how I’m going to make it through this day!” or in my old vernacular, “Somebody, anybody, please shoot me!”. Deciding to and then actually taking action to develop and write my goals was certainly impactful and influential to me overcoming depression. However, like many personal development highs, the motivation I drew from my initial goals waned when I first caught a glimpse of the reality of achieving what I had set out for. This could sound somewhat contradictory - but why would... Continue reading

We are almost three weeks into the new calendar year and it would be interesting to take stock of whose goals are still clearly front of mind and who lost focus perhaps days or even weeks ago. I believe goals are an integral piece of the puzzle when it comes to living a mediocre life or an extraordinary one. When the doldrums set in, it's a sure sign that we have momentarily shifted our focus from "what's ideal?" and begun telling ourselves a story about, and refocussing on, what's not instead. Here's a reminder of what happened when a study... Continue reading

Each year, for the past three years, I've selected a focus word to support my intentions and goals. I find it helps my progress and gives structure to my services and schedule. My focus word for 2o15 is Connection I consistently refer to the phrase, "we can't give what we haven't got." And, when I glance around me and query what the conditions of our planet, humanity, mind-body-spirit health, and the culture of our country, businesses, families, and relationships with each other and our self tell me about myself, the aspect of Life that appears most wanting of my attention,...

I received this query today, "I'm curious to know what concepts or process you go through for an event that takes place like the Siege in Sydney yesterday?" Over the course of the last 26 hours or so, which is about when I first became aware, via a Facebook post, that something unpleasant was occurring nearby, my process has been to: Minimise my exposure to Facebook and all other media sources - I ultimately had four or five very light references enter my space/attention/consciousness including 1.5 progressive ones. I invested some moments reading this article shared by a Facebook Friend... Continue reading

Why do 'bad' things happen to 'good' people? Simply put, I don't believe they do. "BUT, BUT, BUT", I hear some people cry out. "How can you say that!?! Apart from the string of misfortune and bad luck 'so and so' experienced this year, what of the tremendous suffering being experienced through sickness and disease, wars, disasters, and the injustices to men, women and children occurring in our own back yard and the world over? What about them, and why do these things happen when the majority of these folks are 'good people'?" I'm not going to pretend for a... Continue reading

I'm frequently asked about how to deal with feelings of anxiety, overwhelm and stress. Perhaps because I did my fair share of these emotions over the years...suffered the consequences...and discovered the alternatives. My truth about these emotional states today is that we arrive at them in the same way we arrive at serenity, calmness, and being relaxed. The cause of all things, including our emotional states, is thought or consciousness and it's our states of consciousness, or the thoughts we entertain regularly, that generate our emotional states. Feeling stressed and overwhelmed at any given time, and particularly at the end... Continue reading

1. Get Clear Begin with the end in mind by asking, "what's ideal?" Is this 'ideal' good for me, good for others, and good for the planet? 2. Give your 'ideal' life through contemplation Who would I be when my 'ideal' shows-up or manifests? What are the kind of activities I'll be doing? What experiences and/or material items could I have access to? [Be-Do-Have] 3. Expand your mind Recognise that we are spiritual beings having a physical experience by reading, listening to, and watching material that evidences this truth (I have provided a link to my influencers in comments below)....

Our thoughts are the cause of all that we experience, and... Our feelings are our GPS or guidance system. They tell us if our effects are yet "ideal". Our words tell others where we're up to, and... Our activities, experiences and conditions are the journey, our work-in-progress, a snapshot in time of our cause and effect efforts. As we operate Universal Truths & Laws with increasing accuracy, and so long as we stay true and focussed on our "ideal", it becomes easier and more natural to enjoy the journey - knowing that the physical experience of our "ideal" is in...

Whenever I'm feeling impatient about where my relationships, outcomes, experiences and conditions tell me I'm up to, compared to "what's ideal", I remind myself that "this too shall pass". In fact, it is transforming at this very moment. I also invest moments remembering that things are likely to appear worse before the green shoots of my next "ideal" start showing up. The reason for this is that a) we exist in a time/space dimension, and b) when we launch a rocket of desire, the current version of "what-is" needs to be dismantled before the new can enter. Because it takes... Continue reading

Here, at Universal Truths, we believe it's possible to live an ideal life and we apply and coach based on four transformational keys. Awareness + 1, 2, 3. Becoming aware, 10 or so years ago, that I was conditioned to drama, anger and volatility was useful in understanding that my "natural way of being" wasn't serving me well. Recognising that what I was putting out was returning undesirable conditions and experiences on a daily basis was quite an awakening. This scenario can be true if we act out the role of bully or victim, because one cannot exist without the... Continue reading

For as long as I can remember, I've been fascinated by the topic of "death". I have recollections of contemplating death, in a fearful way, from about the age of four until conducting my own research into the subject (in particular through the work of Neville Goddard and Thomas Troward), to have not only found my peace with this subject but in the words of English painter, poet and printmaker, William Blake (1757-1827), I now practice "dying daily". This morning I came across an inspirational resource written by retired Cardiologist Dr. Terry Gordon. In it he states, "Death is but... Continue reading
