Living on the Edge

cn tower3The first city we visited on our trip to Canada and the States this summer, was Toronto. Somehow, we were not feeling jet-lagged, and after waking up at 6am on the Monday morning, we decided to head into the city, and see some sights. I visited Toronto nearly 20 years ago, when I was visiting my best friend. She lived in the city for three years when we were teenagers. So I had been up the CN Tower, but I loved it, especially the glass floor! So Mum and I headed there, and went up the tower. There was a new feature, whereby you could actually be harnessed up and hang off the edge of the outside of the tower. cn tower4Of course, that did not appeal to either of us in the slightest! Instead, we enjoyed lunch overlooking the city, and took a zillion photos, and lay down on the glass floor.

 

Afterwards, we left the tower and took a zillion more photos from underneath it. I was playing around with my big lens, and realised something. I could see a tiny person hanging off the edge of the tower.

My first thought was – what a nutter! Why on earth would you hang off the edge of the CN Tower? Why would you pay a lot of money to hang off the edge of the CN Tower? Then I realised that actually, when I was 13 years old, and I was jumping up and down on the glass floor, over a thousand feet in the air, I felt amazing. Like I could do anything. And if I felt like that standing safely inside on the glass floor, how amazing must it be to hang off the very edge, with no net, just a strap holding you onto the building.

I imagine that after that, things seem easy. I had the same invincible feeling after doing a firewalk in 2013. I was utterly terrified, but I felt so amazing afterwards. Like I could tackle anything.

More people joined the person on the edge, each putting their arms out wide, like they were flying. I took this photo of the five of them, and indeed, if this picture is of you, I have lots more pictures, so get in touch and I’ll send them to you! (It was May 16th, at 1:50pm)

What about you? Is there something you have done that has made you feel like you could handle anything from that point onwards? Is there something that terrifies you that you wish you could do? Maybe you have done the CN Tower thing, if so, let me know what it was like!

Twin Flame Relationships

In my Earth Angel books, I talk about the reunion of the Twin Flames. When I first came across the idea of Twin Flames, it resonated deeply within me. The idea that despite there being several possible soulmates for us, there is one person, one soul, who is our perfect match, they are ‘the one’.

In my books I say that the Flames are usually only reunited at the end of an age on Earth, and in Doreen Virtue‘s Angel Therapy cards, it is said that the Flames only come together during their last lifetimes together, when their reincarnation cycle is complete. In my mind, these two things go hand in hand, though some may disagree.

Here is the beautiful card from Doreen’s deck –

Twin Flames

I have witnessed the reunion of Flames, heard stories, and even experienced being with my own Flame, but there seems to be a recurring problem with these reunions. I couldn’t consciously figure it out, until I was sent this video on youtube, which describes the seven stages of a Twin Flame relationship. Please hit play below and watch it:

So it seems that although the Flames are finding one another, they are getting to the fourth stage  and then things fall apart. I have known of a few Twin Flame relationships that have not reached the last three stages, because of the ego. Because of fear, conditioning and holding onto the past. How can we help the Flames who are stuck to release these things and move forwards? Because for the Twin who has Awakened, who knows clearly that they should be together, it is very difficult to be apart from their Flame, because they know how it feels to be in their arms, to be with the one they love truly and unconditionally.

Why are souls so afraid to let down their walls, embrace their Twin fully and experience the bliss that is available to them?

I wish I had an answer, but I feel that by being aware of this and by understanding that it is a common occurrence between Flames, helps me to believe that there is an answer, a solution, to this. And that not only will Flames continue to reunite, but those who have met and parted from their Flames will get the second chance that they are wishing for.
