As we step into a new cycle (being a Number 1 year) and the old systems are breaking down, there is a calling for new forms of leadership. One of the big areas of change is in the arena of Spiritual Leadership, where patriarchal structures have had much power for centuries.
One of the biggest lessons from the Age of Pisces, was all about Faith, learnt through suffering, sacrifice and separation and the old spiritual leadership helped us to cycle though that. But we are now in a new Age of Unity, Divine Love and Higher Truth on Earth and it is time for a transition in the way that we hold spiritual leadership.
“This means that we no longer lead from the old power structures, mind or ego, we no longer lead from the external motivators. We listen to our hearts, we listen to the whole, we listen to the energies calling us and lead from this place to serve the whole.”
The statistics show us that a new form of spiritual leadership is very timely. According to the last Australian Census in 2011, the number of people reporting ‘no religion’ in Australia has increased substantially over the past hundred years, from 1 in 250 people to 1 in 5. higher at 25% of the population, with Anglican third highest at 17%.
Australia is not alone in having rising rates of people reporting no religion. New Zealand’s latest Census data showed a rise from 30% in 2001 to 35% in 2006, while rates in England and Wales went from 15% in 2001 to 25% in 2011, and Canadian rates rose from 16% to 24% over the same time.
While the United States do not have a question on religion in their Census, the General Social Survey showed the rate of American adults reporting no religion to be 20% in 2012 compared with 14% in 2000. The 2011 Census in Ireland showed that people who report no religion are now the second largest grouping in the country behind Catholics, with the number increasing more than four-fold since 1991 to 6%.
Millennials in particular are coming of age at a time of great skepticism and cynicism toward institutions—particularly the church. Younger people make up a high proportion of those reporting no religion (around half who did so being less than 30 years old).
In a very informative presentation by Effective Spiritual Leadership for the 21st century by Rev. Teddy A. Jones, he shares that in the USA, 4000 new churches begin each year, but over 7000 close, 89 % of pastors considered leaving the ministry, and 50% of pastors are so discouraged that they would leave the ministry if they could, but have no other way of making a living.
We have had clients tell us that they were looking for spiritual support, healing and guidance but didn’t want a religious priest or a psychologist and didn’t know where to turn, until they found us!!
You can see there is also plenty or scope for a new form of Spiritual Leadership on this planet! Be part of the wave of change!
I call the new style of leadership that is required “Vibrational Leadership”. This means that we go within to the vibration, feeling or divine inspiration and then act, speak, write or think to serve the moment. It is lead from the heart, soul & higher mind. These energies are naturally aligned with wholeness.
We lead from the inside out!!
This new leadership has a lot to do with the masculine and feminine principles of creation. Basically in the last few thousand years on Earth, we have been in patriarchy and most leadership, including spiritual leadership has been initiated from the distorted masculine energies.
You can read more about the Masculine energies here but at the balanced level, the masculine is the form and the structure given to a vibration, it is the mind, it is logic and reason. It is the visible results. Patriarchy was particularly in the shadow masculine energies of control, power, greed, conquer & destroy.
This means that as a collective, we have been creating through the mind but with no connection to the whole or often we create and take the vibration and distort it with our minds. The feminine brings the intuition, the connection, the knowing, the feelings. It is the CREATIVE energy.
So creation is meant to be a dance where the feminine ‘births’ the vibration from the VOID/ Quantum energy of All That Is and the masculine brings form and structure to that vibration. It then continues to be a dance of union, as the masculine constantly checks in with the feminine, as the creation develops to ensure alignment wit All That Is.
The new leadership now INCLUDES the feminine!!!! And they both continue to WEAVE together to create.
An example of misalignment would be genetic engineering of seeds. Yes it is a great idea but there it has all come from the mind and a desire for money & power. It has caused a lot of problems in the world! I am sure there is a wonderful purpose to genetic engineering that would serve everybody if those using that technology would just listen to their soul!!
All of us have learnt the pitfalls of following what you think you should do, i.e. ‘it seemed like a good idea at the time’. Usually when we check in with ourselves, we realise that that idea served an ego desire. This includes the often distorted quest to find your ‘life purpose’. I find much of this comes from the ego!
And of course we must say here, that not every spiritual leader in history has been these energies!! These are general themes for humanity.
Vibrational Leadership in Action
An example of Vibrational Leadership in action is the upcoming Priest/ess Diploma. I received the inspiration from Spirit to ‘bring back the Priest/ess as a vocational training’. I could feel the energies all around it!! They were very clear it was to be called a Diploma for that reason.
Of course my mind said “How on earth can I do that?” but due to my experience and spiritual development, I honour the energies of Divine Union. I meditated countless times; I listened with all of my senses for signs and wisdom to do with the training. I stayed open to messages from Spirit. I put together a 60 Page course outline in a seemingly short amount of time because I was simply following the guidance!! Easy!!!
Spirit recently showed me 2 Diplomas – one if I had taken the initial idea and put it together based on my mind and my experience in the linear education system, and the other the result you can see, where I constantly stayed in the listening and ‘channelled’ the Outline. I could see that they were 2 very different Diplomas!!!! Like chalk and cheese! There is much wisdom just reading the Course Outline including the Priest/ess States of Being graphic and the Wheel of All Faiths.
The new Spiritual Leadership doesn’t mean that we dismiss the mind and get all airy-fairy. I love the mind!!! It means that we use the heart to guide the mind and thus tap into Higher Mind, an amazing resource in your life!
Oprah has been a wonderful role model of this as she has told us that she follows what feels right. And look at her impact. Amazing! It has certainly uplifted the whole!!
Remember, before taking any step, you must listen within first,
to the voice of you soul!
Vibration, action, vibration, action, vibration, action and so on.
Whether you are here to lead many, a few, or just yourself, you can apply these principles.
A new Spiritual leader:
- Inspires the Divine from within
- Works through unity consciousness – of peoples, sexes, races and religions
- Is heart centered
- Fosters self-sovereignty
- Delivers much through their ‘presence’ and essence
- Embraces Wholeness
- Honours all forms of life
Right now the planet is in dire need for women & men to come together to spark the remembrance of our collective nature, to honour our emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual selves, and to reawaken our sovereignty, wholeness and innate gifts. For this to happen we need empowered leaders to stand courageously!
I AM CALLING YOU!
This year Spirit has given me a new mission. Together, we are creating a new paradigm of Spiritual Leadership on this planet.
New Spiritual Leaders are here to return the faith, to return people’s knowing of their connection, to return the wisdom of creation, the rituals and practices that help people to live a soul centred life and so much more.
I have a vision of a Temple in every community in the world, where Faith & Connection are established, Higher Wisdom is taught, communion is remembered, and light continually ripples into the community as sustenance.
But the journey beings with you! This whole program is delivered through the practice of Vibrational Leadership. To help YOU lead from the inside out. Year 1 is all about opening to the qualities of Vibrational Leadership for YOURSELF!! You can simply enrol in Year 1 as the course is designed to do any or all of 1, 2 or 3 years.
This is for you if:
- Your heart is calling you to make a difference in the world.
- You are excited about the Earth changes and feel you are here to steward the shift
- You want to weave your unique gifts into soulful offerings to serve others.
- You’d love support to find your true self and share your spiritual gifts.

- You are fascinated by the Spiritual, the Magic and the Mystery .
I’m here to show you how.
