charleysdg △⃒⃘ BIRTH YOURSELF INTO BEING △⃒⃘ We are, from birth, at the mercy of those that raise us. Those that choose us & keep us. We learn everything we know from them. What they value & believe. We live through their successes & failures. Their highs, their lows. Vicariously shaping our mental image of the world each & every day. Locking in to place the border pieces of a puzzle that eventually, over time gets filled in more & more as our life continues. We see these people & we, unquestionably see their lies, affections, emotions, reactions, words, actions as their core truth & inevitably, in our vulnerability, we build our core truth from it.
So what does that make of you, an individual? What happens when you keep coming up against the same obstacle? What happens when what is "right" just doesn't FEEL right? What happens when you have not experienced full soul integration? You feel a certain lack? Do you pick up the pieces that won't fit together, turning them in your hand & just keep filing down the edges until they make a false fit? Or do you wipe the puzzle clean & start over?
You are the average of your environment. Again, you are the average of your environment. You are the average of your CORE TRUTH.
Until you question the values & beliefs that you hold, you will never truly know who you are & why the puzzle fits the way it does. Explore that. In questioning your beliefs & values you will in turn be able to believe in & value your core truth & yourself. Birth yourself into being.

charleysdg I am going to be posting Animal Spirits & their symbolism on @anenchantedlife_ weekly. If there is an animal that you feel drawn to or has been appearing to you frequently & would like to know more about it's symbology, please write it in the comments over at @anenchantedlife_! Elephant Totem ◮ The symbol of Commitment, Royalty & Strength.

Elephant Medicine & having Elephant as your spirit animal means that you are a natural leader. You face all obstacle with great thought, & despite your size, you are effective in getting what you need to do in order to have soul evolution. Your family & close ones mean everything to you & you are very protective of them. You often "know" things without knowing them. This is because Elephants communicate telepathically & often know the needs & wants of their love ones before the loved ones do. Elephant medicine is one of the most powerful to have.
If you have been dreaming of Elephants lately, or they are appearing to you in images, songs, videos it is a message that you are able to deal with any obstacle that you are faced with at his time. If you are riding or being lifted by the elephant that symbolises that you are asks to take the lead role & step forward & with that, you now feel that you are carrying a heavy burden of responsibility for others' feelings & needs. ↠ Positive traits - nurturing, social, intimate, natural leaders, telepathic, intuitive, gentle, caring, kind, powerful, strong, connected to ancient wisdom. ↠ Negative traits - jealousy, rage, revenge.
↠ Sense - Smell
↠ Chakra - Muladhara - Root
↠ Element - Earth
↠ Affirm - I provide.

charleysdg Traveling alone is hard. Really, really damn hard. & while I knew that I needed to break my co-dependency issues by coming here alone I never knew how much I would struggle with it. I enjoy being alone. I work alone, I lived alone, I really, really enjoy my own company. But somehow this is completely different. There is a giant grounding pull here completely unbalancing my energy. My base chakra is working over time. I feel disconnected. & I am alone. I am really, really alone. I experienced a deep, resounding & extremely saddening loneliness on my second night here & again today.
I guess what I'm trying to say is this - everything can look perfect from the outside. Poolside with flowers in my hair is wonderful but what I'm not sharing is me crying in bed at 4am in the morning because I'm suffering from the worst heat exhaustion of my life. I'm hungry, I'm sore, I'm tired, I'm scared, I'm frustrated, I'm really fucking alone. & I'm absolutely embracing all of it. I'm humbled by it. This is life, this is MY life. This is my reality. & while today I feel like I want to run home where it's safe, I know that my journey calls for more.
So I return to the place that heals all - surrender. Meditation. Stillness. Connection to the Universe. & cleansing, releasing, purifying tears. So many damn tears. & I send endless love & light to anyone else feeling this way. Whether you are fighting it or feeling in to it, you're not alone. You are loved. Infinitely. You are loved. ૐ

charleysdg I woke up this morning, in Bali. It has been a long time since I had been here. The last two times I had been to this beautiful place, I had left only hours before both bombings. With much trepidation, after spending a full hour meditating to @attituderevolution's meditones I felt ready. Ready to make my peace with it. My feet led me back without thinking to the first bomb site, with each step my heart hurt more & more. The pounding in my head was deafening. & suddenly, I was there. The overwhelm was making my breaths short, high. I couldn't think straight. I felt panic, loss, grief, fear. Everything, everything, everything. Then I knew what I had to do.

Surrender.
Surrender to the emotions. Surrender to the moment. Surrender to everything. & I let it go. I let go of the grief. I let go of the loss. Of the tragedy that I had been carrying. The survivors guilt. The loss of who I was then. The day of the bombing I picked up a flat stone 1m from the site & I have had it for all of these years. I missed it by 6 hours. That is not dumb luck, but I've spent all of these years pretending it didn't matter, knowing that it did. So there I stood, tears streaming down my face, just sobbing at the loss of life. The loss of innocence. I made peace with it. I surrendered. I lay down my guard & I surrendered. This is not my story anymore.

The night before I came, I was tidying my office & I found the stone. The Universe was speaking to me. I turned it over in my hand, knowing, the time had come. A lesson years in the making. I know that it has taken this long for me to come back, not because of the bombing but because I was lost. I put my pieces together, I rv arrived this burden of guilt & hurt & loss & I return to lay this stone down as an offering of thanks. An offering for making me who I am today. An offering of thanks for my life.

charleysdg I am heading off for two weeks as of tonight so if anyone is after an Australian Bush Flower Essence Blend please get your order in today before 2pm. I am currently mixing myself one of these amazing blends, which I took with me travelling all throughout South East Asia. It helped to calm anxiety, allow myself to set personal boundaries & was a life saver in a very during a very horrible panic attack. The first in two years. Prior to taking Bush Flower Essences travelling without some kind of sedative was not even an option for me. I had to have two Valium just to get to the airport. Taking chemicals & drugs to deal with what should be a positive experience really took away from that. Now, completely drug, chemical & anxiety free, I don't go anywhere without some Emergency Essence nearby. I even have a blend for my dog! (Yes, it is safe for animals, pregnant & nursing mothers & of course little human bubbies, toddlers & adolescents.) To say that Australian Bush Flower Essences have changed my life is an understatement. I have never felt more ME, more emotionally stable, more clear & more safe in my life knowing I can rely on these holistic remedies to get me through anything.
Please get in touch via the contact form in my shop or you can buy an Essence straight from www.anenchantedlife.com.au if you're looking for a change. Don't let anxiety, stress or fear take away from the beautiful moments in your life.
