Navigating Personal Change from a Psycho-Spiritual Perspective, Three Ways to Make it Easier

Rapid and sustainable personal change and spiritual development is very possible these days.

With cutting edge tools and new information available, and upgrades in the collective consciousness, the speed of the vibration here on earth is rapidly increasing. Our options for who/how we want to become and for managing that change process are also upgrading. 

Many of us who came here to choose transformation and enlightment, or to be a lightworker (escorting in those changes), are now finding that is unfolding, almost seemingly, despite ourselves.  

It can feel like we are being almost forced into stepping up and choosing change. As a friend joked this afternoon, it can almost seem as if we have been ‘hijacked’ by the Universe.

The truth is we never feel ready for change when it ‘happens’. On the surface of it, we are mostly prompted to grow by inner pain as a result of external events. What’s really happening is our real purpose for this life is emerging. It is often precipitated by emotional crisis and requires addressing in a real, urgent and insistent fashion.  

Whilst this is presenting as a mental health crisis, (and it is) there is also a bigger picture at play. A new world order is gradually taking effect, and it’s emergence requires a sustainable physical and emotional landscape. Old heavy, entrained and toxic ways of the past, must go. A new, interconnected, loving, responsible, futuristic society, can emerge.

Set against these factors, the personal change journey is really a beautiful thing to experience. I am privileged to support others on that journey. It is soulful, sweet, beautiful and moving experience when everything lines up and it plays out (with us as the chief protagonist). We are almost carried along for the ride even despite our free will.

The Universe is incredibly gentle and kind with re-directing us. However, I’ve noticed for myself and for others, the messages and opportunities to shift timelines, become increasingly relentless and intense, the longer we dig in and stay stuck. Eventually everything breaks apart around us and like a shipwreck survivor on a life raft, we have to reach out for help.

Once we embrace the way forwards, we tend to feel a sense of relief, or knowing. We start to see the bigger picture and can acknowledge this. The sense of purpose that envelops us along the way, gives us a certainty that helps buffer us, when the pain comes and we experience the fire of rebirth.

Many are dealing with traumas, old emotional patterns coming up to release, people falling out of our lives who are no longer a match, and vibrational upgrade, as our inner world shifts on it’s axis. There may be external issues requiring our attention, but once addressed, these will go away easily, unless further learning is required.

We are prompted to acquire a level of emotional mastery to help us with this unfolding. Many are seeking answers in the spiritual realm to understand our individual and collective purpose and guide us at this time.

Here are some themes that are coming up in the change process for many and how you can negotiate them:


Resistance is a peculiar beast. It’s like a protection mechanism when we are very uncomfortable with the changes we are making and with the amount that the new us showing up and putting ourselves out there.

As we get freer, we inevitably take risks, more responsibility and accountability. We indulge less in avoidance behaviors, addictions, or perhaps our health is improved, our income grows. We don’t rely on the same excuses, or not as much.

Resistance is natural and it is our ego (or our reptilian brain) keeping us safe from the discomforting effects of change. It’s important when in it’s grip, that we reach out, maintain good self care, habits and continue forwards. We will have throw back moments, hours and days, but they will reduce.

As we progress resistance is a sign that things are working. Consistency is key, as is allowance for mistakes. There is no right nor wrong. It is a journey and everything is about choice. It takes courage and some mettle to maintain our resolve and keep course correcting, where necessary.

TIP: In the face of strong resistance, stop fighting. Allow it to come up and overwhelm you. Feel into it, speak to it directly. Thank it for keeping you safe and stuck. Tell it you have got this now and it can go. Send it on it’s way. You will feel it loosen and diminish it’s hold on you.

If you drop the ball, get out of the wrongness of you and learn self kindness in the process. It’s a wonderful skill to cultivate.


We can be messed up sad, and angry one minute and calm and light the next. We really aren’t taught this. We are taught to hold an angry space and persist in that and even to defend it, or if someone is sad, they’ll be that way for a while.

Energy is instantaneous and emotions can change quickly too. Now I’m not suggesting we are unstable and changing like the weather every 10 seconds. What I am suggesting is don’t keep throwing good energy after bad.

If you get to a place where what you’re doing isn’t working, change it. It’s okay to do so. You are allowed to learn new ways of responding and to experiment with mastering your state, whatever that looks like for you.

TIP: We will have primary emotional patterns and it can feel very disruptive when they start to dislodge and we’re not sure if we can just step out of them and into a new vibe or space. We totally can.

Be in a supportive space around others you can trust and take time on your own through this process. This will develop your resilience, self awareness and confidence.


Almost all of my clients report this. Beautiful moments, ‘chance’ meetings and opportunities, new connections and friendships and support from unexpected places are just some of these.  

There may even be spiritual experiences, that may feel natural and normal, given the level of commitment to out creating previous challenges, developing an understanding of our inner world and creating a different future.  

TIP: Once we are aligned with soul driven change and we are following our purpose, people, places and things show up to support us.

Stay open to receiving and being out there. Life has your back and you’ve got this. You are brave for making this journey, and you know what you’re doing on the deepest level.
