The Fight is On

It feels like a new beginning and I am fighting with my beloved soul sister walking by my side.  I am heading for the light and there is no stopping me.  There is no room for doubt, although I feel it with me still, watching and waiting.  Right now, I’m not as strong as I would like to be, I’ve got a cold virus, a swimmy head and am wondering if it’s the cold or another migraine starting.

My mum is in hospital, she had a knee replacement operation on Monday and now she’s in lots of pain, as would be expected, but they found a blood clot and now that’s the priority.  She will be alright, I know she will, despite her eighty-nine years, she’s a feisty one, a fighter and strong in her body and mind.  Right now, she needs me and she needs reassurance that everything is going to be alright.

I’m about to go for another healing session tomorrow, after the revelation of mercury poisoning in my brain at the last session, I’m wondering what it will reveal.

All these things are present, and yet my focus, whilst I’m not with my mum at the hospital, is on myself, not only for myself but for others, to get well and find a way to beat the darkness that, even now I can feel curling its tendrils at my feet.  This is the depression that engulfs me from time to time, leaching all the light out of my world.  Once I crash, I’m hopeless, but this time, with hope in my heart and the love of my sister, I am going to stop it from engulfing me, once and for all.

I hope you like today’s picture, it’s an image I captured from the car on new year’s day, on the journey back from celebrations with my husband, Andy’s family.  Large wind turbines against an expressive sky.  I was taking photos at the time to distract myself from the migraine symptoms and the internal darkness I was fighting then.   



Healing The Heart of the Earth is my blog and the Home of Four Branches Healing which is the shamanic and energy healing service of myself, Amanda Reid. My blog focuses on my spiritual thoughts, feelings and experiences throughout a daily life blessed with the freedom to be and do many of my favourite things. Coupled with the lessons, messages and challenges that certain physical conditions bring to me from time to time, namely migraine aura and osteoarthritis. Sometimes, I face outwards and focus on bringing healing to others, sometimes, I need to face inwards and focus on my own healing and growth. My passions include walking in the woodlands and working with the trees, strolling along beaches and swimming in the seas. I approach most things from the perspective of a worker with energy, looking for the energetic dynamic and using it to bring healing, hope, love, faith and manifestation into my life and those of others who cross my path, in as much as I am able. My path is wholly within the vibrations of the divine, particularly the feminine principle of the divine, whose current expression is enabling a balance of male and female energy for humanity. One day, we will be ready to embrace the non-gender reality of the cosmic levels completely, but for now, the divine feminine is bringing her loving and compassionate energy to balance out and bring healing to the millenia of masculine divine energy that has been expressing itself on Earth. If there was only one thing I could say to you, it is this, you are divine. It matters not who you are, you are divine. You have no reason to accept what I say, but I still wish for you to know it, not with your thoughts and mind but in such a way that you feel and experience the truth of it, embrace and embody it. You are divine. You and every other being you know. By divine, I mean you are made up of the same stuff as what we call God, what I call the Creator. At our core, all of us are that pure, that perfect, that magnificent and that wise. We are, however, a little more complicated than that, consisting of a number of elements that go together to make who we are in this, our present personality, in this, our current incarnation on Earth. Take that divine core and add a rather confused and easily bruised personality/ego with a severe memory problem, starting out (again) as a little baby, growing up in a hurt and challenging world, amongst a population of people all going through the same thing, all trying to work it out. The divine core, at soul level, is more like a passenger, its voice not heard for all the noise of our physical existence; the desires, the emotions, the struggles, the suffering, the pain, the fears. All of it, illusion, just a very convincing one. I’m one of many who are waking up. Are you one who is waking up? Confusing, isn’t it? But worth it. There truly is no other way, this is simply the best game in town and we are ascending. Wake up with me and embrace your divine nature. You are more than welcome, you are my reason for being here.

  1. I love the picture and I always felt something I can’t quite put I to words when I saw them in Germany. Something attracts me to them, standing in the wind, bracing the elements. They always survive and make it without their giant blades getting snapped in half.
    As you are bracing your own storms, you are strong and have given the fight to the universe. All will be well beloved sister. Xo
