There is one common thing that is expressed from those who have Near Death Experiences or those who have done the challenging inner growth of Enlightenment – They come back knowing that Everything is happening for a reason and that your life that you are living, is very important to be lived exactly as you are.
I felt this so strong during my own awakening period and wrote it in a book called, Just Be You – Transformation and The Gift of Fear. But the truth of everyone who has gone to the ‘other side’, coming back and applying that awareness, keeping that inner peace and using it in our current world, our daily lives and the challenging changes happening around us, is not as easy as when we have removed ourselves from society and daily life. For me the greatest test of what I had learnt was not re-entering the horse world and it’s many fearful, ego based control systems but Motherhood, sleep deprivation and balancing my own work desires.
This came to me when my dear friend Nicola said she would be speaking to the Turtle Realm. They asked if I had any questions for them? They came back to remind both her and I that, ‘we can also speak with Humanities Realm for clarity on our life too. An easy oversight’.
So I sat down to ask a few questions to Humanities Higher Self – Our Collective Consciousness.
What do they want us to know?…

I am hearing it and seeing it often, that there is a hatred for what the Trump Presidency is doing by creating division amongst people of race, color, poor or rich. Bringing with it a hatred and separation that is building anger and violence from all levels of our systems.
This may be true but aren’t those of us that feel the same hatred and ‘difference’ towards those who divide and conquer and the actions spilling forth from their reign in power, not doing the same?
I have succumbed to this myself at times, with a hatred towards the purposeful destruction of our beautiful home – Mother Earth. But my Guides made one thing very clear to me last night while meditating. Aren’t we doing the same?Read More
I decided to take a week off from the Internet world. I was told that during this time I would be given a Message for Humanity. I then turned my phone off for 5 days and began to sit down and ask my Guides questions. Everyday questions, questions about my life, my work, each of my children, Nathan, the animals and a lot more. One evening it came. Nathan and I were talking before bed and there it was, loud and clear…..Read More
I used to be very afraid of the aspect of Karma. I honestly feared the thought of being punished for the wrongs I had unwillingly done in my past. Telling a lie, hurting someone without knowing it or the dread of what I may have done in my past lives.
The thing is, Karma is not here to punish us.Catherine Louise Birmingham
I recently sat down and asked my Guides about Premonitions. What are they? How do they work? Why do we need them? What are their purpose?
Here is a very important interview I did recently with Julie Saillant. Julie asks the important questions about horses being in our lives and their work of raising our consciousness. It is such a powerful time of change and growth for everything on this planet right now and I hope I can provide some answers here to those that are wanting to move out of the old ways and become aligned with higher vibrating newer ways of existing together with horses and this world.
Sitting on the side of the mountain after climbing the Buddhist temple, I had slowly emerged out of another deep meditation when I realized leaves had been falling on my head. As I looked above me, there sat, ate and played a large group of black with white rimmed eyed, monkeys. Not at all concerned with me being there, they only began to move away slightly once I stood to leave and enter back into the mountain for the long stairway journey to the bottom.
During the year and a half before hand, I had been going into longer and longer periods of far away meditations lasting hours at a time, reaching beyond the body and beyond the mind. The wild monkeys in Malaysia were not afraid of me or disturbed by my presence because essentially ‘I’ was not there. My consciousness had merged with the mountain’s. Later the temple caretakers were very surprised to hear that the monkeys had come to me, saying that the black monkeys did not like humans and rarely showed themselves. After going to this temple daily for a month it was the first time I had ever seen them.
I had by this time, tuned into an unbelievably profound sense of peace, awareness of all that was going on in the world, clarity of what laid ahead, both in and out of a meditative state and an immense amount of love for everything. I often explain that during these years I had ‘left this world’ but eventually I needed to came back. My new life ahead awaited me and I was ready to face it’s new challenges but from a whole new perspective. It wasn’t always like this though…..
In the first article about Self Love – The Way of Self Love, I mentioned that having boundaries is a powerful part of creating self-love and I will write another article specifically on boundaries with their importance and how to set them.
I once went to a friend of mine, Jillian Drew, who had begun doing healing sessions with her horses (Equevoke). I wasn’t really sure what to expect, I worked with horses daily and thought that if they had anything to help or guide me on in healing my past abusive relationships, they would have done by now. I knew her horses well as I had been coaching her Dressage for some time already. But this day turned out to be very different than I had imagined. I wanted to heal my past and break the cycle of attracting abusive men.
In a time of global healing and Souls shifting from fear into love, I also understand that the transition into self-love can often be unclear and challenging. There is often a misguided perception of self-love being only soft and a weak manifestation in the physical world or an ego-ness of selfishness and greed. Many associate love with kindness, patience, compassion, happiness, surrender and turning the other cheek but love, above all of these, is strength, self-respect, discipline, courage, will power, boundaries, emotional connection and depth.
Choosing a love based life is never about sacrificing yourself for another, it is about choosing yourself for another. Becoming a martyr in an act of love only drains yourself and the one you love. Empowering your light opens your heart and with it the ability to love another.
Sometimes in life, we just need to breathe and let go…..
The need to hang onto the reins and to control things, is just another way of us trying to find security in what we are doing and what is happening in our lives. It’s when that sneaking inner anxiety and fear about the future is slowly making it’s presence known but you are not aware of it yet. The tension and stress that you may not even notice in you, slowly starts to come to life. You start to notice that you are controlling everything around you and that you are hanging on to the reins.
Unfortunately in riding and in life, if what we are doing is an action driven by fear, it only produces more fear in the horse. This is where no matter what we do, we keep sending signals of insecurity, control and tension and this keeps bringing back to the same response to us from the horse.
