How can we connect & thrive in todays world?
The Heart of Gaia is a project I share. It lays a foundation of unconditional love. It shows us how to connect with Gaia, transcend duality and reach a state of oneness and flow. From this place of coherence; a timeless home in our hearts, we embrace our highest potential.
Since I was a child, I sensed that my true home was not as simple as my parents house. Like everyone on Earth there were beliefs and ways of seeing the world I inherited. Many good things were passed down, but life created a lot of room for growth and a greater sense of completeness. I was both challenged and encouraged to explore my sense of identity, spirituality, and value.
This took me on two journeys. First I travelled to different places, ate at different tables, and marinated in the diversity of lifestyle, conversation and perception. In the process I found the common human pursuit to be happiness. Exploring how we meet that need was the second journey. All methods fell into two categories; an inner way or and outer way. The outer way was more vulnerable based on external conditions that were subject to the laws of impermanence and duality. The inner way, allowed a realignment with something much larger than one self. It could not be touched in a 3D form, however its non local energy allowed a flexibility, authenticity, and reliability.
While both inner and outer methods brought happiness of varying degrees and durations there was a common foundation i.e. unconditional love.
Experiencing unconditional love was easiest for me when I surrendered to our Earth i.e. Gaia. Being in nature and connecting with Gaia in a multi-dimensional way always gave me clarity.
With Gaia - I was always understood. I was always welcome. I was always loved.
Over the years I developed many ways of surrendering to the oneness of Gaia. I cultivated practices, that over time were refined through trial and experience. In the pre-covid world I would share my wisdom and meditations with like minded friends, and continue along my own path.
In a world with COVID, constant change, and unnerving uncertainties (Kali Yugaya) I found myself lost and confused to begin with. Early on in the pandemic Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth spoke to her people and encouraged us to look beyond the realities we faced, trust in our resilience, and act in ways that we would be proud of. These words went straight to my heart and I found myself drawing on all the wisdom I had, and learnt new ways to navigate life. After the initial shock realisation that everything described in ancient wisdom traditions was coming true - I wanted to help others during these times of uncertainty.
Hence the creation of community facebook projects, Doctor Oshi Infinite Potential and the Heart of Gaia to help you and your communities find peace, inspiration and hope. I open my heart to share the journey with you.
The word Gaia comes from the ancient Greeks. When said aloud the word itself has a beautiful resonance, gentleness and wholeness. It refers to a primordial mother. One who contains, supports, nourishes and loves all.
To me Gaia represents the oneness of all life. Hence why I chose the phrase "Heart of Gaia".
Suffering occurs when we don't update our knowledge, accept or understand the natural laws that govern life. Mother nature knows the absolute truth. We create science as a way to measure and understand this truth. The Heart of Gaia method explores the ancient wisdom of our ancestors who honoured the cycles and rhythms of nature and finds pearls to enhance modern life.
We often know what we should do in life. Having a strategy and a skill set that helps us adapt and thrive in a sustainable way is an under taught skill. The Heart of Gaia method empowers you to choose more consciously, plan, and manage your energy. Knowing how to stay flexible yet committed in a balanced way is the secret to success.
At the core of the method is my own method of mindfulness "The Mindful Heart", and breath work "Gaia Breath". The Mindful Heart cultivates an intuitive awareness and heart centred intelligence that supports our thinking, reasoning, and decision making during the day. It allows the heart to stay open and connect despite the harsher realities of some human experiences. Gaia Breath, (rooted in pranayama and a connection to the Earth) is a gentle and profound way of moving away from the noise of the world. Based on the ancient techniques of Pranayama it connects you with the life force. With this connection you have a very different relationship with the flow of life. It supports the growth and resilience of "The Mindful Heart".
Life is a constant evolutionary impulse. Practicing with others makes it so much more fun and enjoyable. The Heart of Gaia method helps you love and deepen your relationship with yourself, your own community, and find new friends with members.
