Remove your blocks by being REAL: 10 questions to ask yourself

We all know that frustrating feeling of being blocked; of being in a place where you feel stuck, lost or confused about where you’re at on your journey. There’s that niggling feeling that something needs to change,but you don’t quite know what it is yet. Or, perhaps you already know what needs to change, but you’re too scared to take action. Time and time again, you come across road blocks that stop you from making any progress, even when you think you’re doing everything in your power to try and move forward.

The key to removing these blocks?

Being real.

The definition of real, according to the dictionary is: not imitation or artificial; genuine.
Now, can you honestly say that right now, you are being 100% real? If you’re feeling blocked at all – in any area of your life – then it’s very likely that you’re not (even if you think you are). Let’s explore this a little further, while I give you examples of how you can be real, and in the process, remove those nasty blocks!
1. Who are you, really?
Ask yourself this question and be brutally honest. Try not to use labels or words that describe what you do, because you are so much more than that. You may be a parent or a teacher, follow a certain religion or be part of a sporting team, but once again, you are more than that, too. This question needs to be answered on a soul level. Who are you, in all your entirety?
2. What are you passionate about?
What gives you that warm, fuzzy, excited feeling inside? What could you talk about for hours on end? Is there something that you just want to know more and more about? Are you actively doing something about this passion, or do you see it as just a dream?
3. What are you not saying?
What are the things that you’re not speaking up about? Are you bottling up unexpressed feelings or not talking about your true beliefs out of fear of judgment? Is there something that you know deep down needs to be said? Ask yourself why you aren’t speaking your truth.
4. Are all of your relationships (family included) healthy and do you have clear boundaries in place? Do you let others treat you poorly or do they have unrealistic expectations of you? Are there people in your life with whom you walk on eggshells just to keep the peace?
Do you feel comfortable being yourself around these people? It may be time to reconsider who is on this journey with you, and whether or not they have a role in your life that serves your highest good. It’s okay to remove toxic people from your life. Yes, even family. In cases where you simply must maintain contact with family members, you can still cut the energetic cords between you.
5. Are you happy with your job?
Your job, career, study plans, day to day routine… whatever you want to call it based on your own situation, you always have a choice. If you’re unhappy getting up every morning because you don’t genuinely look forward to your day each day, then something’s got to change. Again, it may be an expectation of others that you ‘keep at it’, but does that fulfil your needs, or theirs?

6. What are you afraid of?
I’m not going to give you the whole, “fear is just a thought” lecture, because everyone knows that already, and if you’re genuinely feeling fearful, then compassion is what is needed. I will let you know however, that whatever your fears are, you can and will overcome them, if you make the conscious decision to do so. There is always support out there and people willing to help you to face this fear, so when you’re ready, ask for help- it’s one of the most courageous things you can do. And, for those of you whose fear is the unknown, please know this. The unknown is where the real magic happens. True story.
7. What or who do you need to let go of? 
The possible answers to this question are endless – relationships (of any kind), patterns of behaviour, pain from the past, guilt, regret, unhealthy thoughts and environments… you get my drift. It simply must be done if you want to live authentically. The key to letting go however, is not just saying, “ok I let go of this, this and that”. You have to be brutally honest with yourself and truly, wholeheartedly, Let. It. The. Fuck. Go. Letting go means that it is gone; never to return, never to be dwelled over or engaged in again. If you’re not ready to confront something, then you’re not ready to release it.

8. Do you love yourself? I mean really, truly love very aspect of yourself? When you look in the mirror, do you stand there proudly, knowing you are your whole, beautiful damn self? When you talk about yourself to others, or to yourself, are you positive and speak about yourself with love? Do you hold your head high and face the world with eyes wide open? Do you truly believe that you are deserving of love, respect, and greatness? Do you recognise how powerful you are and allow yourself to use it?
9. What do you feel is missing from your life?
I’m not talking about a new car, a massive house, or some piece of jewellery here. I’m talking about asking yourself what you feel is missing on a soul level. What do you yearn for? What keeps drawing you in? That ache in your heart, the missing puzzle piece- what is it? And why aren’t you doing everything in your power to go after it?
10. Are you ready to embrace change? What are you willing to do about all of the above? Being your real, unfiltered self takes courage, because not everyone is going to like being confronted with such a powerful, authentic being (it’s their problem, not yours, by the way, and they’re probably wishing they could be as brave as you).
If you want to remove your blocks, start with these questions. I guarantee you, that if you’re courageous enough (which I know you are) to address even one of these questions, you’ll begin to notice those  heavy, confusing blocks lifting away, as if by magic.
You’ve got this. All you need to do, is be who you really are.

The Wheel

So here you are again

The wheel has fully turned

Now it’s time to make a choice

About what you have learned


Do you let it go another round

And repeat it all again?

Or have you finally reached a point 

Knowing it will never end?


The wheel will keep on turning

The past will still repeat

Until you make a conscious choice:

Is this it what you really need? 


It’s like you’re stuck in motion

Not knowing how to stop

Asking why nothing changes 

Or why you feel so blocked 


It doesn’t have to be this way

But something has to change 

Will you jump off the wheel

Or go around again?

Why I’m a Publisher

After attending my very first book launch and signing last night for the first author who published her work with me, I felt compelled to share a little bit about me and what I do, and how White Light Publishing House was created. 


As I discussed with the lovely group of people at the book launch last night, I guess I am not your ‘ordinary’ publisher, and I love that about my publishing house. I am not in this business to ‘get rich’. Of course, I need to earn a living, and cover costs of all the work that goes into publishing, however, my reasons for being in this business are far more meaningful than making money. In fact, I don’t even like calling it ‘business’; and much prefer to label what I provide as ‘a service that helps others to achieve their dreams’. 

Someone asked me last night, what the process is for having your work published. Basically, right from the get-go, I work with you to publish your work- whether it be a novel, a children’s book, a deck of oracle cards- the way you envision it. You decide how it’s going to look, how much you’ll sell it for, and how your work is to be shared with the world. 

This is your hard work that we’re working with here, and it’s your dream. I’m just here as a support, and to guide you along the way to make it a reality; not to dictate to you how it should be done. Of course however, if there are areas that you’re unsure about, or wish for me to take control over an aspect of your work (such as cover design, layout), then I can do that for you too. 


As I said, I am in this ‘business’ to help you share your work with the world, and am happy to work with you every step of the way, until you’re 100% happy with the finished product, ready for release. If you need to meet in person, we’ll do that (provided we live near one another), if you need to text or call me with a last minute addition, or want to go over a heap of samples for book covers before you find the ‘best fit’, that’s perfectly okay too. This process is about you and your dream; and pride myself on providing a personalised publishing service.

In addition: 

I keep my prices affordable. I know that as a writer/artist, sometimes the dream of becoming published may seem out of reach due to the costs involved. I also offer payment plans.

You maintain all rights to your work. I do not own your work once it’s published; you do. After all, it’s all your hard work and love that has been put into it. 

You receive the majority of the profit. I only take a small 10% of sales from your published work. As I said; I’m not in this to get rich. I want to help you

Your work will have a global reach. While White Light Publishing House is a relatively small company, your work will reach almost 40,000 retailers, schools, and libraries across the globe (including digital platforms such as Amazon, Kindle, iBooks).


As for how White Light Publishing House was created, well, that’s an interesting story in itself, but to put it briefly (otherwise this could well turn into a whole other article), I was inspired by an amazing woman, Karen McDermott,who wrote a book called ‘The Visitor’after reading it when I miscarried back in 2012. After much conversation and forming a friendship over a year or so, she encouraged me to start writing again myself, and after I wrote an article about my life journey, I truly understood what it meant to heal through writing. The process of bleeding all my experiences onto paper was the best thing I ever could have experienced, and I would encourage everyone to do the same; to help make sense of life in general. 

Anyhow, once I wrote that piece on my life, it fuelled me to keep writing, and soon enough, I had all these ideas running through my mind, and spoke to Karen about getting my work published. Being the beautiful person she is, she encouraged me to open up my own publishing house, and showed me the way in getting it all set up. And that, is how White Light Publishing House was born! 


Things are only just beginning, and while I’ve been blessed to have published some of my own work, as well as several other authors’ titles, there are many, many more on the way! Some of the projects I’m currently working on with authors and artists around the globe include some inspirational compilations, poetry and short stories, children’s books, affirmation and oracle cards, a cook book, and even some fundraising projects! As well as this, I’ve also added a platform to my website where both experienced and aspiring authors alike, can share their inspiration through article and short story/poetry writing. I believe it’s a wonderful platform for gaining more exposure as a writer, and after all, that’s how I started out, so why wouldn’t I offer the same opportunity to others? 

The future of White Light Publishing House is very exciting indeed, and I look forward to sharing many more people’s work with the world.

Connecting with Spirit: It’s all about trust 

Everyone has the ability to connect with Spirit- everyone. We all come from the same place, so why wouldn’t we all be able to?
Unfortunately there are some psychics or readers out there who would have you believe that only certain individuals are born with this gift, but it is simply not true. People that preach that they are born with it and that no one else can learn to connect with Spirit, or are not the ‘real deal’ are sadly mistaken. Yes, you are born with it; everyone is, and it’s not a matter of learning to connect with Spirit, but rather, remembering how.

It’s actually quite surprising that it would even be suggested by anyone that only a select few people are able to have this connection- especially by someone who is providing these types of services to others. In saying that this is a gift that can’t be accessed by all, it would imply that some people are more worthy of others, or that spiritual connection is a rare gift that only certain individuals are granted access to. Hardly sounds fair, does it? Anyone who has been able to remember how to have this connection should be encouraging as many people as they can to do the same, not glorifying it as some gift that only they are special enough to have. So please, if you are ever told anything along these lines (especially by a psychic or similar), please just ignore them, because they are likely not very informed on the matter.

Having said my piece on that, now let’s get back to the fact that each and every person not only has the ability to connect with Spirit, but are connected and always have been. So, let’s elaborate on the term Spirit. Connecting with Spirit encompasses so many more things than you may even realise. I’m talking about any and every entity that is what we refer to as Spirit, including our loved ones who have passed, loved ones and members of our Soul Group from this lifetime and past lives (including those from incarnations on other planets), Angels and Archangels, Ascended Masters, Spirit and Animal Guides, God and more. Spirit is not just limited to our loved ones who have finished this lifetime on earth, but so, so much more.

So, you might be wondering now, “just how do I do this?” The simple answer is, it’s all about trust. You would have already been receiving messages from Spirit, but perhaps aren’t recognising them, or thinking that these things are just part of your imagination. We each have different ways of receiving messages from Spirit; similar to the way that each person learns in a different way. For example, some people learn best through hands on experience; others find it more useful to read a book. It doesn’t mean that these people learn any more or less; just that they have a different way of soaking up the knowledge. The same goes for Spirit connection, with the only difference being that you’re not learning to connect, you’re remembering how to make sense of your connection (because remember: you’re already connected). You just need to figure out the best way to do this that feels most comfortable with you.

Some common ways that you might be receiving messages from Spirit (and perhaps don’t even realise you’re getting them):

  • Synchronicities (such as seeing number sequences or things just happening at the right time)
  • Physical signs such as coming across feathers, coins, or familiar scents
  • Hearing a song on the radio or TV that reminds you of a loved one or gets you thinking about something
  • Seeing ‘movies’ or images in your mind
  • Hearing thoughts, words or names in your mind
  • Sensing that Spirit is around you (a sudden change in temperature or getting the shivers)
  • Seeing orbs or flashes of light out of the corner of your eye
  • Ringing in your ears
  • Electrical equipment or lights ‘playing up’
  • A sudden urge to write or create something that’s seemingly out of nowhere
  • Dreams

These are just some signs that Spirit is connecting with you. How many of these have you disregarded as ‘coincidence’ or your ‘imagination’? If you knew that all or most of these occurrences were Spirit communicating with you, would you think or feel differently about it?

spirituality Let us remember also that it’s not just messages you receive from Spirit. They hear you too- your requests for assistance or guidance, your prayers, gratitude, and love. You may also be receiving healing, strength or courage at a time when you need it most. The list is endless really, but what’s important to remember is that whatever it is you need, Spirit are there to support you. You might not receive what you need at the time you expect, or it may come in a different way, but rest assured, things will always occur at the right time, and with your highest good in mind.

So, always remember this: you are, always have been, and always will be connected to Spirit. Whether or not you choose to pay attention to and acknowledge this connection is completely up to you, but it will always be there regardless. If you choose to be consciously aware of this connection, the most important thing you can do is to trust. Trust that the signs and messages you’re receiving are real, and have faith in the fact that you are very much supported on your journey. Once you’re able to truly trust in this connection, everything else comes naturally.
