“It is not what happens to us, but how we react that matters”
Epictetus 55 – 135 AD
At Flame we see spiritual development as an integral part of life. It is not necessary to be religious to connect with our innate wisdom and spirituality. Challenges offer opportunities to go beyond our limited habitual responses and develop a more openhearted outlook, and when we connect with our ‘Higher Self’ – some might call it the soul – this divine spark of inspiration and creativity feeds the flame of life itself. Connecting with ‘source energy’ helps us to appreciate the tremendous opportunity we have in being alive at this time on earth. When we tap into this higher, intuitive, ‘awakened’ state of consciousness, beyond the ordinary concerns of everyday life, things feel more harmonious, peaceful and joyful and flow more easily. We stop having to try so hard, and things become effortless, naturally falling into place.
‘Love and Above’
When we are experiencing the higher emotions such as love , joy, compassion, gratitude and peacefulness this literally raises the vibrational frequency of our energy and we become more ‘en-lightened’ – and easier and more fun to be with!
