Inner Earthquakes and Tsunamis

Yesterday an earthquake of the magnitude 8.9 hit the Pacific Ocean nearby Northeastern Japan triggering a massive tsunami.  It is estimated over a 1000 people have died. 

I often imagine Mother Earth is within my womb.   She goes through all the changes I go through.  Her balance is within me. 

Have you ever had emotions so overwhelming you could not stop crying, a feeling of water washing through your whole self? an inner tsunami, clearing out the old energy within, allowing wellness and wellbeing to return.

The same as the stillness of a lake or the gentle caressing of a wave, we have within us the whole world of peace, tranquility, sea, volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis.


Nothing is separate.  Without my eyes, my ears, my senses the world would not exist for me.  It is the same for everyone.  Choose to see the world within and bring love back home to yourself.

The metaphorical landscape within us, encompassing stillness, tranquility, and the potential for both gentle waves and powerful upheavals, mirrors the diverse landscapes of the external world. This interconnectedness emphasises the oneness of our experiences with the world around us.

The reminder that nothing is separate, and our perception of the world relies on our senses, encourages introspection and an appreciation of the intricate relationship between the self and the external environment.

Take this as an invitation to embrace self-love and mindfulness. Recognise the vastness of your internal landscapes and the potential for cultivating inner peace.

In times of both calm and upheaval, acknowledge the interconnectedness of your emotional experiences with the natural world.

  • Do You Need To Be Needed?
    This post came about after talking with a friend about someone in my life who I find quite draining now. Someone who, when I am around, really has no personal engagement—a sense of a death friendship rather than an alive and invigorated friendship. I spoke about this a little in a recent post. My friend…
  • Why Am I Afraid To Be Happy?
    Do you ever wonder why life satisfaction feels hard for you? Or do you find that when things are going great you are waiting for something bad to happen? Expecting the worst? Worrying about what’s next on the horizon? It might seem strange but many people think this way, not realising that there is an…
  • You Validate Your Dark and Light – Not Others!
    I’ve been consciously on my own spiritual path for around 24 years now, and I’ve gone through a whole host of experiences, attachments, struggles, awakenings, and resistance too. One thing I have learned is that we are not at all responsible for validating another person’s emotional journey. Neither are we responsible for making emotional experiences…
  • Unlocking Authenticity: Breaking the Cycle of Seeking Validation Through Helping Others
    For 23 years, I have been a channel for healing, and in that time, I have spent a lot of time helping others, supporting others, organising plans for groups, and giving more than I received back, more often than not. I volunteered, undersold myself, and charged the bare minimum at times, and while I was…
