'People desire to separate their worlds into polarities of dark and light, ugly and beautiful, good and evil, right and wrong, inside and outside. Polarities serve us in our learning and growth, but as souls we are all. Not "either or" but, "and both!"'

"We live in an "And Both" reality"

"You are all things. Denying, rejecting, judging or hiding from any aspect of your total being creates pain and results in a lack of wholeness.

"What is the most effective way to hide an aspect of yourself? We wear a mask of its opposite, we hide ugliness with a mask of beauty, or beauty with a mask of ugliness. The mask serves to keep the outer world from unmasking the original wounds and aspects of self that we have disowned. Enlightenment and healing is the process by which we unmask our duality to reveal our unity with All that is."

"To manifest your hearts desires you must BE what your heart

"If your body holds any hidden fears or negative
feelings about your dreams you will find it hard to manifest.
Allow your soul to give your body what it needs for you to BE
all that you desire to be!"

"Your inner knowing is your only true compass"

"If every year is a marble, how many marbles do you have left? How many sunrises, how many opportunities to rise to the full stature of your being? Don't wait to be all that you were born to be! Be it now."

"Sometimes it is as simple as changing even one limiting belief. Sometimes all it takes to change a life is to decide which beliefs do not serve you and to literally change your mind about those beliefs. Choose beliefs that serve your soul - choose beliefs that serve the grander dream of who you choose to be."

"Don't let anything stand in the way of you claiming and manifesting the life that you choose (on purpose) rather than the life you have by default."

"Instead of focusing on that circumstances that you cannot change - focus strongly and powerfully on the circumstances that you can. Like finding a small crack in the wall that imprisons you, finding one realm of choice can be the tool that you need to pry the crack open and free yourself." 

"Information can bring you choices and choices bring power - educate yourself about your options and choices. Never remain in the dark of ignorance." 

"Dream and give yourself permission to envision a You that you choose to be."

"Ask yourself the question, 'If I could be anything in this world, and be guaranteed success, what would I be?' Then start being that today in the small ways that you are able. Pretend and imagine shopping like that person, breathing like that person, making decisions like that person. Then build a bridge from here to there with real actions and steps." 

"You manifest based on who you are already - so you must own the identity of the dream in order to manifest it."

"Fear is your greatest obstacle - so question your fear. If it does not serve your greatest life then do not make it your master."

"The God that resides within you, that is life, wisdom and compassion gives you the power and gift of Freewill. Freewill means that the Universe never judges, never interferes with your own choices - and sees you as a being of equal creative power."

"Life is your canvas. As a soul, you choose your starting colours - which are your body, your human personality, your country and family of birth. Then you come into your life, with your paint brushes and colours ready to begin the artwork called your life. This is where most people get stuck. They hand their brushes and paints over to others and wonder later why the painting called their life, is not what they wanted it to be. Your life is not anyone else's fault or responsibility. Your life purpose is to hold your paintbrushes with joy and to paint a picture of life that is true to you - it can never be right or wrong, you can't fail at it."

"Your life is the opportunity for pure creative soul-expression and it is completely up to you to decide what it looks like." 

"You are the God-being that is here to create life, to breathe soul into your body, to walk this world as your own source of power, love and life."

"Our outer experiences can seem to tell us that we are powerless, unworthy, unlovable, etc. This is a grand test for our souls; can we remember and keep the soul-truth - no matter what our lives seem to be telling us? The truth that we are powerful, worthy and love - no matter what!"

"This is an opportunity for you to decide who you are. To 're-create' who you want to be on the inside out." 

"Pain pushes us to question everything. So question who it is that you want to be and what kind of life experience you want." 

"You may not seem able to change some outer circumstances but you can start by changing your inner experience of life and yourself." 

"God is not passive, God is the creative life force that is you at your deepest level of truth. Why block the god in you from demonstrating itself by creating a life of joy, fulfilment, and love? Take back your brushes and have the courage to paint your life, as you desire it to be."

  1. After focusing on the mental level you focus on the SOUL level. For this you imagine that your body can sense and feel for the presence of your guides or for the mind of your soul in the air around you. Breathing in your soul or spiritual teacher connects you to that mind allowing soul to work through your body, emotions and body's mind. Feeling soul in your body, with your emotions and then opening and inner dialogue with soul is deeply healing and takes you to the ultimate level of intuition and knowing - the soul level. 

Souls are intuitive already (capable of receiving knowing through feelings and connecting to other minds) - it is a matter of bringing this knowing into the physical body. This takes practise and yet is a very natural and easy process. The Soul Awareness processes are designed to train bodies to open to soul and expand all four levels of awareness. This takes people to the ultimata source of intuition, guidance and wisdom... their souls.



I teach this course because I know that even though this work is simple and sometimes subtle, it changes everything in a very real way. This is practical spirituality. This is you learning to look past the mirrors to find yourself as a Being of Light, awesome, knowledgeable and capable of discovering your own wisdom and truth. I don't only want to share what I have found during my 25 years of spiritual inquiry, I also want to show you how to get in touch with your own source of soul knowledge. Intuition is the key! Your soul has all the information you seek and intuition is the language of the soul. 

- Did you know -
That your soul and body have separate agendas - though they merge to live a physical life as one! That your soul experiences what your body feels but that your body is mostly unaware of much of your soul experiences and knows! That your body can block and interfere with your ability to receive intuitive guidance and support from your soul. That your soul is pure and powerful, waiting to live the life it intended to live. That you will feel an emptiness inside you, the moment that you are out of alignment with your soul. That you are capable of bringing more soul into your body to change what it feels like to be alive.

What would it do to your life to learn to see through the eyes of your soul?

I designed this course to facilitate your direct access to your soul’s energy, wisdom and truth. Clients over the years, wanted to learn the tools that had developed my own intuition and so that is why I created these courses. To share the same powerful techniques and awesome experience of being able to directly access your own soul's wisdom.

This tape set comes with an illustrated workbook, interactive lessons and practical guided meditation processes to assist you to align and work with your soul for intuitive guidance. Once you have completed the course - you also have the four powerful guided meditations available on side B for your long term use!

3 Tapes and Workbook

Learn how to connect to your Soul for support and guidance. Release the wisdom of your authentic Self. Unveil the language of your Soul which is intuition. Begin communicating with the part of you that KNOWS! 


The Soul Awareness and Intuition Course is the foundation to all of the Soul Awareness Work. Soul Awareness is literally about discovering yourself as a Being that is independent to the human body. Finding your true self is life changing - it changed mine! 

The information and meditation processes that I give to you on this audio and workbook course, are exactly the same tools that took me to my own soul for the first time and continue to connect me on a daily basis for guidance and peace.

The processes are inspired by my loved friend and colleague, Jann Weiss. An American author and teacher who I had the privilege of working with.

Philosophy of mind

It is often thought that the main defining characteristic of a person is that a

person has consciousness, mind or soul. We are all aware of consciousness (our

feelings, thoughts and sensations), however it is more difficult to say what

consciousness is.

Plato(c. 427-347 BC) thought that what we really are is our soul, and that this

soul will survive after death, indeed death is seen as the release of the soul.

Plato is thus asserting that soul and body are distinct substances, bodies die,

but souls are immortal.

Aristotle (384-322 BC) Thought that the soul and the body are essentially

related. The soul is not a separate substance, but an arrangement of stuff, or

material substance, of which the body is made. As Aristotle once said, "If an

axe had a soul, its soul would be cutting" For Aristotle then individual

immortality seems impossible.

Modern philosophy has developed these 2 themes in a number of ways. Stimulated

by Descartes, Leibniz suggested that mind and body only appear to interact: in

reality there is no relation between the 2 substances, rather God has

pre-established a harmony so that our minds and bodies do not fall out of sync.

He uses the analogy of the 2 clocks to illustrate his point. God is seen the

master craftsman who has created 2 clocks of such perfection that they always

show the same time. Whilst this point of view does not rule out immortality, it

does seem that free will can not exist as god has pre-established all possible


T.H. Huxley (1825-1895) was an epiphenomenalist. For him the mind is a product

of the (material) brain. For example if I think that I want some chocolate, this

may be because my stomach is sending messages to the brain because my blood

sugar level is low. For an epiphenomenalist consciousness has no power to cause

anything, it is simply a reflection of biology, and of course when the body

dies, the mind dies with it.

Recent philosophers are interested in the possibility of artificial

intelligence. For example, a thermostat may be said to have 3 beliefs "It's to

hot in here, it's too cold in here" and "the temperature is just right". Could

it be that human beings are machines that are just more sophisticated?

Descartes and Dualism

Descartes (1596-1650), the "father of modern philosophy" reopened the debate

with his dualistic view.

Rene Descartes (1596-1650) used his famous "method of doubt" to show that he

could not doubt the existence of his mind. As doubting involved thought, and

thought needs a consciousness to think it, Descartes was sure that he could not

doubt his mind existed: cogito ergo sum "I think therefore I am".

He did think that it was possible to doubt the existence of his body. Many times

he had dreams, which when he awoke he found to have no basis in reality. He

imagined that a malicious demon might be fooling him into believing that he had

a body. Later he argues that God exists and that as God exists he can be fairly

sure that his body exits also.

He is called a dualist because he thinks that mind and body are separate and

distinct substances: Mind is conscious and non-spatial and body is spatial but

not conscious. He also thought that these 2 substances interact, via the pineal


Most criticisms of Descartes are based on the impossibly of 2 completely

different types of substance interacting: How can a non-spatial thing interact

with a spatial thing?

Descartes theory does allow for the immortality of the soul, which is perhaps

why it has been so influential.


1) Identity Theory

Spinoza (1632-77) suggested a way out from the problems of dualism. Mind and

body are not 2 different substances that interact; rather they are both

attributes of one substance.

In the 20th Century, identity theory has again become popular. The current

version of the theory is that the mind is the brain and the brain is the mind.

Consciousness is the individual's experience of the brain, and a scientist can

observe brain processes that correspond to conscious experience.

Think of pain. If you stub your toe, you will be aware of pain. On a physical

level, your central nervous system is sending messages from your toe to your


Suppose you want to raise your arm. Your decision to move your body sends

messages from your brain to your muscles and your arm moves. It seems that

Descartes problem of interaction has been solved: there is only one substance,

and as there is only one there is no problem of interaction.

This is fine when talking about pain and simple movements; things get a bit more

complex with complex concepts. Say I am thinking of the concept of freedom or of

Paris in the springtime, and so are you. Is it likely that either of us have the

same physical bits of the brain occupied by this thought, or that a scientist

using a brain scanner could read off our thoughts?

2) Behaviourism

The behaviourist approach solves the mind body problem by rejecting the concept

of "mind". As science can only deal with the observable, and as the mind is not

observable then nothing can be said about it. Psychologists are not denying that

we have consciousness, they are simply saying that from a scientific point of

view only behaviour can be analysed.

Gilbert Ryle (1900-76) developed this approach. He criticised Descartes view

that human beings have a "ghost in the machine" by suggesting that the confusion

about mind and body arises by the way we use the word "mind". Ryle says that

when we refer to someone as "intelligent" then we are, in fact, making

judgements about that person's behaviour, that they acted intelligently on a

particular occasion. Intelligence therefore does not refer to some hidden

private entity.

The mistake philosophers have made is due to a category mistake. Imagine a

visitor to a university. A lecturer is showing the person round: "This is the

research area, this is the library, this is the lecture theatre", the visitor

then asks "But where is the university" as though the university was another

building. Ryle says that our notions of mind are like this: "I can see the

person behaving intelligently, or sadly, but where is the mind that is doing

this". For Ryle mind is simply a term referring to types of behaviour or

dispositions to behave.

There are 2 main problems with this approach. Firstly, for most of us what is

interesting about mind or consciousness, is out awareness of it, rather than our

behaviour. Secondly, it is not clear that all mental states have corresponding

behaviour. What behaviour is associated with hearing a tune, or remembering your

5th birthday? From the point of view of an observer, the behaviour associated

with both types of mental activity may appear identical.

1. Soul Doubt

 Sometimes I feel my life is going 'round in circles

Beneath my eyes are bluish black

There's nothing new, no one I wanna talk to

Nothing I wanna think about, I got soul doubt

I stick My head out of the window, when it's closed

Instead of air, I get glass stuck in to my head

The city's sounding, and I can't seem to stop the pounding

Can't keep my thoughts from flying 'round

Can't keep my thoughts from flying 'round

Not sure what I am thinking about, I got soul doubt

A shameless display, wearing a smile full of pain

A frameless Erte, a painting without a signature

She's waiting for someone to save her

As I pass her by I see Cinderella

She dosen't fit into the slipper

Like she fits in a bottle of liquor

There's no one to take her away

Her eyes meet mine, she sees right through me

The question is asked, Whatcha' gonna do for me?

I don't want nothin', just a connection

I gotta know what she's all about

Cause I know she's been there

Soul doubt

I stick my head out of the window once again

This time I see a thousand faces all too clear

They wear the same expression, I've seen in my face

So many times, I know exactly how they feel

I know exactly how they feel

I know just what they think about

They've got soul doubt

And a man said,

Speak to us of Self Knowledge.

And he answered, saying:

Your hearts know in silence the secrets

of the days and the nights.

You would touch with your fingers

the naked body of your dreams.

And it is well you should.

But say not,

"I have found the truth,"

but rather,

"I have found a truth."

Say not,

"I have found the path of the soul,"

say rather,

"I have met the soul walking upon my path."

For the soul walks upon all paths.

And since you are a breath in

God's Sphere,

and a leaf in God's forest,

you too should

rest in reason and move in passion
