Academy of Light Bulletin : 31st October 2018 – Be Present

In and Around the Academy

Osha Sheehan AcademySpiritual teacher Ocha talked to a full house at the Academy, through her keepership of the Earth Heart Axis, about how we can easily connect to the heart of Mother Earth.
She guided us through a deep meditation, using her light language to connect our hearts to the heart of Gaia and the Blue Mountains. I found myself in a deep trance, reluctant to return when we were summoned back. My heart felt more expansive and connected after the meditation.
Ocha has always had a strong connection to nature. She worked as a national park ranger and wetland ecologist in iconic sites all around Australia before embarking on her spiritual path. She now helps others to re-activate their Earth-Heart connection through her Opening to Earth courses and Portal work.
“Portals hold the keys that connect us with Universal Consciousness. When you connect to a portal, you receive a gift in the form of a personal insight or healing. “
Ocha explained that the easiest way to connect to portals is through nature because nature opens your heart, and you need an open heart and peaceful mind for a deeper connection. Giant trees are powerful portals, so by meditating under a large tree, you receive its assistance to connect to Source.
There are so many ways that a portal can help you through challenging times as they hold gifts for your healing, wellbeing and new education.
Powerful portals are found in sacred sites around the world like, Uluru in Central Australia, Machu Picchu in Peru , Mount Shasta in California, Sedona in Arizona, and the Pyramids in Egypt.
In Sydney, we can access portals in places like Ku-ring-gai Chase, Royal National Park, the Royal Botanic Gardens, the coastal headlands and the Blue Mountains.
But you don’t need to travel physically to access these portals. In deep meditation, the soul can travel across vast distances, explains Ocha. 
“It is important to connect with portals as often as we can, because the Earth is going through major shifts. Whenever you connect through the light of your heart, you amplify the light of Gaia and her energy field for the expansion of consciousness on the planet.” |
“As stewards of the Earth, we are co-creators with her, so the more we come into our light, the easier it is for Earth to expand her light and evolve.”
Ocha invites you to join her in the Portals of Sydney program from November to April 2019, which includes ceremony in the historic power sites of Sydney. To find out more, visit her website:

The following meditation, recorded by Ocha on the night, will help connect you to the Blue Mountains portal. Please call in the 7 Archangels of the Earth before starting; Michael, Jophiel, Chamuel, Gabriel, Raphael, Uriel and Zadkiel.

A Heart Shaman’s Initiation to the Fifth Dimension

Simon Hollington

Simon Hollington is a heart shaman, yogi and meditation teacher on the Maitreya lineage. Simon will be demonstrating heart-based consciousness, whereby the heart becomes the master of the brain.
It is a physical process to move the locus of consciousness from your head into your heart. It is only your consciousness that matters, nobody else’s. You are the universe, and you need to create New Earth from within your heart.
He will discuss 5th dimensional life and the aboriginal perspective on the harmonic system, interactive with the Song Lines.
The brain looks for problems to solve and, in the process, creates problems. It all begins with self love, simple but often missed in the various teachings available today.
Simon has worked with different indigenous cultures and had several initiation experiences on the vortex energy centers. He teaches a heart-based meditation system which activates your Merkabah, introduced to the west by the Columbian, Mayan, Kahuna, Druid, and other Pan Shamanic Cultures.
Meditating on the vortex energy centers and clearing out blockages from traumatic life events will help us achieve higher consciousness more easily as we move into the fifth dimension.
The message from the world’s indigenous people is to live in unity consciousness from the heart.
Removing blockages to self love is critical. Blocks such as unworthiness, can be cleared in a one -to -one session, on the Song Line Confluence, which I conduct near Manly, one of the most powerful sites in New South Wales. If you begin now, with Angelic Violet Flame Assistance, in six-month’s time you will be in tune with Ascension.
On the night Simon will guide us in a meditation to move from our head into our heart dissolving all issues of lack, separation, fear, and endless wants.

Jason Snaddon – The Abundance Activator

Jason Snaddon 2018Jason’s spiritual & personal growth journey started in 2005 when he learned that our focus creates our reality and the power of intention especially when it is created from a state of presence. He became really aware of how much he had been focusing on what he did not want so he got clear on what he truly wanted, from his own truth. It was then that he also learnt about intuition and harnessing the spiritual laws of attraction, through presence.
Taking what he had learnt, Jason founded Love Property, a successful real estate business which built significant wealth, running this business from a very conscious and spiritual perspective.
After losing his Mum to cancer in 2014, he began exploring his greater purpose, and his truth at a deeper level.
What has unfolded is a uniquely powerful ability to channel and to activate abundance that is inherently within all of us.
Jason teaches that we all have the opportunity to contribute to a collective shift in consciousness for the greater good of all and his passion is to facilitate that shift in those who are ready through creating space for presence and activating the Abundance within.
Jason will share his story interwoven with key abundance lessons to bring forth in your own experience and lead you on a powerful abundance activation meditation, using channeled sound and messaging.
