Interview with Anne Jirsch

As part of my own process of clarifying my mission in this lifetime, I have been inviting diverse healers, therapists, and a now future life progression expert, into my awareness. As Lao Tzu reminds us, When the student is ready, the teacher will appear. When the student is truly ready, the teacher Disappears. We often tell ourselves we do not know what is around the corner, but maybe we do in the heart, and do not accept it until we see fear is a stepping stone to live more fully.

Anne Jirsch of this moment arises from many life choices.  A London-born psychic and workshop leader, she is the world-renowned authority on Future Life Progression (FTP).  As a field pioneer. she runs the only FLP training school in the world.  Her clients include heads of industry, politicians and celebrities. She is also an internationally best-selling author of four books; Instant IntuitionThe Future is Yours, Cosmic Energy, and Create Your Perfect Future.  (All available on Amazon too). Being in harmony with her calling, she triggers new levels of awakening in everyone she encounters. I feel privileged to connect and appreciate her sharing this interview.

Describe key stages of your human awakening.

As a child, I would peek when my grandmother read the tealeaves. She would cure people’s warts and used herbs to make potions. I was fascinated and had a burning desire to discover more.

In my teens, I went in search of answers. I travelled to India and visited various ashrams and temples, but my biggest teacher was a beggar called Vikram. He made me see the world with different eyes.

Love that from so young, you were aware of the power of intuition and also had role models who encouraged you to trust it.  Your unexpected teacher reminds me of Dan Millman’s, The Peaceful Warrior.  On the surface, an injured gymnast meets an unexpected teacher in an auto mechanic.  On a deeper level, Dan Millman is facing his own fears of vulnerability, failure, and death.  This is the universal Path.

As it happens, Marcel Proust says, The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes. You echo a shift in perception, seeing things differently, was a pivotal moment for you.

Yes.

So, we know facing fears is key to embracing what is beyond them.  Tell us about key events that guided you to FLP as a career.

For a great many years, I had worked with cards and past life regression. One day, I was working with a couple of military men, we were trying to discover something about the past. Instead, we jumped forward and saw the attack on the Twin Towers, three weeks before it happened! At first, we were shocked, but then, I wondered if we can do this whenever we wished. We starting experimenting and the results were phenomenal.

What stands out is your invitation to each of us to celebrate what enables us to feel comforable in our own skin.  In the song Most Girls, singer Hailee Seinfeld echoes we are each unstoppable when we  follow the wave of what excites us.  Her song, Back to Life in the new film Bumblebee states: we are all looking for things we cannot seem to find until we tune into the feelings inside that won't go away. The way you consistently listen to your intuition reinforces this.

What is the difference between creative visualisation/ vision boards or future pacing and FLP?

With future life progression, we actually tap into the future, we actually see what happens. With the others, it is more wishful thinking or trying to manifest.  We really can and do see the future.

In the mainstream, we are often taught that future visions are science fiction (Sci-Fi) until technology catches up, until we develop the skills or struggle our way to make a dream happen. Popular movies and books condition the mind to believe one thing while it is beginnnig to dawn that with a different attitude, new realities arise faster.  Thanks for inviting us to shatter our own myths and trust  our experience more.

Many teachers focus on guiding students to expand or be more authentic. How would you describe your approach as a teacher and guide? 

It’s all about bringing people up, inviting them to expand into new possibilities. FLP is more of a collaboration.  Our practitioners all have their own talents which FLP brings out. This allows us to guide clients, allow them to bring out their full potential. Most people have blocks and they try to manifest with their current consciousness. We take them into the future where they are beyond any blocks, we then bring that energy back to the present time. They change before our eyes.

How inspirational! Life may seem to string us along until we begin joining dots more consciously and feeling part of a larger symphony. Every revelation is a feeling of synchronicity. Its as if we know the feeling of being in harmoony with our best self, because we do and choose to forget.

Share 3 of your most emotional moments in this lifetime. What did you learn?

This is the toughest to answer; I am pretty private about such things. My most emotional moments have been when times have been tough and I’ve had to pull myself up by my bootstraps. I had very little money and a poor education to had to fight from the bottom up.

One key time would have been walking away from a long-term relationship. I packed my bags, picked up a bottle of brandy and left. Felt weird to walk away from everything you have.  Yet, it took me down a new path, opened doors and I created a wonderful life.

Your sharing here reminds us that losing everything we think we need actually brings us the experience of what we always wanted.  Eleanor Roosevelt echoes, [we] gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience where [we] stop to look fear in the face.

Your life illustrates that doing what we think we cannot do empowers us to stretch and blossom into more of ourselves. It is said our future self is living though our memories until we catch up with a more expanded and confident version of true selves.

On a more practical note, for people whose current life repeats unconscious past behaviour patterns, how does FLP help them?

Using FLP, we can take people beyond the pattern, even go into a future lifetime where we are all wiser and have moved beyond those patterns.  We have a method to locate the source of an issue and clear it.

Knowing this, it is hard to imagine people not being drawn to heal themselves on a whole new level.  Yet, fear can be immobilizing until understood and healed. In Return to Love, Marianne Williamson reminds us, our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkeness, that most frightens us.

Please share 3 examples of clients whose lives shifted as the result of FLP.

We have literally had thousands of clients experience positive results with FLP. For instance, Paul seeing himself married to a wonderful girl whom he subsequently met.  This happened after he’d given up on ever finding love.

Many of our clients have seen their future work. Wendy is a good example; she came on our training never having worked in the spiritual field. She saw herself in magazines and on stage. She thought it was just fantasy but again, within weeks it started to happen.

And many have seen their future home, Carmen saw herself living in a mansion by the sea, again she thought it was just wishful thinking.  Yet, I can vouch for her getting the home, I stayed there.

So many people benefit from being reminded of their power to change from the inside out. I also invite people to refer to your books.  You highlight the hidden power of thoughts and words. We are not only what we eat.  Our lives manifest the result of our vibrational visions and blockages which can be removed when we are ready to express our heartfelt selves more fearlessly.

Tell us of revelations you have experienced due to your own regressions/ progressions. What stands out?

There are so many. For me, what stands out was glimpsing my books before they ever materialized. I didn’t really believe this was happening because I was unknown.  Yet, I saw myself with a three-book deal, and within weeks, I had it. It all came together. It is mind-blowing to go from nothing to being published by a major publisher. 

Love that authors like Dr. Bruce Lipton (Biology of Belief, Spontaneous Evolution, The Honeymoon Effect), Neale Donald Walsch (Conversations with God series) and Rhonda Byrne (The Secret in 2006,  The Power in 2009, The Magic in 2010, Hero in 2013, and How The Secret Changed My Life in 2016) all admit they were surprised at how their books came together and left a lasting impact.

The revelation I love the most was seeing my future grandchildren before they were born. I saw two boys who were brothers; then I saw a little girl. They are all here now.

But also world events, when we travel further into the future the world seems much cleaner and calmer, it is as if the human race grows up.

These examples are so inspiring and heart-warming. Many people are taught to visualize dreams and yet sparks of doubt often arise to cloud or block the unfolding. Humans are also taught to feel impatient or discouraged by time and forget they have far more control over their lives as they grow conscious and reclaim power they give away to anger, fear and other emotions.  We can each reharness all that energy and use it more constructively. The encouraging vision of the human race collectively growing up or evolving is entering the awareness of more and more of people. When it happens is up to each of us.

Share your most profound lesson about love (from this or other lifetimes)

It would be to have no judgement, if someone is fabulous in your life and makes you and your life better and happier then that is it. In the future we do not worry about age, race, religion or bank balances, it’s about how they make you feel.

As singer Harry Styles Sign of the Times echoes, we have all been here (in this world) before.  Rather than want to get away from here, we can embrace what Millman calls, The Life [We] Were Born to Live.  This brings me to your unique calling.

If you could offer insight that transformed your perception, what would it be?

Travelling into the future has changed me. I find it hard to worry about silly stuff because I know it doesn’t matter in the future. I am more clear-cut and, in some ways, harsher, I cut away negativity for instance, I am less liable to make excuses for people.

For many of us, time travel is a concept we are taught to believe requires a physical tardis like in Dr. Who, a whacky car like the invention in Back to the Future or a physical timepiece like Nicole Kidman seeks in The Golden Compass.  We are fascinated with machines that act as Stargates or  enable us to take a Quantum Leap. Films suggest we need a physical device to access different worlds and parallel realities. We forget we all do it between the ears and with every breath.

It’s a bit like when you are on plane and they say, put the oxygen mask on first then help others including your children. It goes against our instinct but it is the right way. Look after you, cut out the negativity in your life including people who drag you down, once you are strong then you can help others.

3 reasons to trust yourself more

What would you say that if every moment, you have the option to view every event of your life as a stepping stone to the unforeseen? What if you begin to view right where you are as a pivotal moment, a turning point, to competely shifting your sense of reality? Have you ever said to yourself: what if I had the courage to make life choices that bring me closer to experiencing my ideal life? First, you would need to know what that ideal life is or feels like.  Clarifying this vision is easier than imagined. Visions evolve with us.  Consider three reasons to trust yourself more:

1. Sense that the feeling of "risk" changes

At different life stages, we create and grow aware of different kinds of comfort zones.  Creating dreams is one way we concretize or challenge our comfort zones.  We constantly ask ourselves, how far are we willing to go to realize dreams or reach certain goals? In other words, what am I willing to risk or sacrifice  in order to change some experience or overcome fear of inadequacy? 

Invite you to view an example:  'my biggest risk ever' post series.

Biggest risk ever

Biggest risk ever follow-up

Biggest risk ever follow-up #2

Biggest risk ever follow-up #3 

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us." 

-Marianne Williamson

2. Act to have no regrets

Regardless of ares of life you contemplate, the key to growth is to make choices that allow you to push the envelope.  That is, desirable action is that which does not have you asking, what would have happened if I had done that? Reflect on when you trust or doubt instincts, hesitate or go down unfamilliar paths. What is the universe inviting me to do if my job is no longer? or you are restless where you are? Only you know how it feels if you are holding yourself back or moving forward

3. Do the unthinkable

Have a you ever reached a stage in your life where you feel ready or willing to move away from much or all you know? Maybe this involves letting go or moving on from relationships you outgrow, changing job or career, somehow taking things to reach a whole new level.  Points of reference form your identity or sense of security. Letting go is a process.  To develop greater fearlessness requires you take steps to stretch yourself, do the unthinkable, venture into more of the unknown. If you have ever changed jobs, moved house, or considered other big changes, you know the feeling of fear can also be felt as excitement. Reflect on examples of big changes you have made or are making. Are these proactive or reactive behaviours? What do you feel and what is being reflected back in responses from people around you?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

**As I write this post, I am preparing to move 5000km with my family. This is a symptom of shifting priorities, trusting intuition more fully and being more authentic. This path involves finishing renovations to get ready for house sale, letting go of what is outgrown or no longer used, researching school and new home options while being increasingly transparent, open and deepening connections.  All of this is clarifying a new path. 

Any changes in or discomfort you feel about your external world reflects ongoing internal shifts. Although I have moved many times before, this current experience takes things to a whole new level for me. What would take things to a whole new level for you in this world? What grounds you, enables you to feel human?

Awakening cannot be learned...it is a process of growth...it's what happens when you grow through total living.  Its born of living in total awareness. -Isira

Interview with Liara Covert

As I receive many emails from people asking about my latest book, a new 7 day coaching program and other projects in the works,  I feel it is fun and helpful to compile my answers as a blog interview.  The questions are from a variety of sources.

Time is hard to get.  It gets away from many people. What inspires you to teach Mastering Time?

Call it intuition or an inner knowing. It is part of a vision that came to me in a dream and also spontaneously emerges from me when I am asked about my life purpose or destiny. Like 14 year old singer-songwriter Grace Vanderwaal is in touch with her destiny, I too can see Clearly.

Why write such a thick book? 

Perception is relative.   460 pages is what it is.  Yet, The Secret Teachings of All the Ages (768 pages)by Manley P. Hall and In Search of Lost Time by Marcel Proust (7 Volumes) are longer. Length is based comparison.  Books are as long as authors decide to say what they wish to say.

How does the book affect you and other readers?

You may laugh, but much like other readers, I am going through the book exercises and reflecting on personal insights in new ways. Turns out, Mastering Time is part of a series.  I have created three books from a larger book because a process is unfolding within each of us.   

When engaged in the process of reading and journalling, you forget about the book length, lose yourself in time, only to find yourself again, in a refreshing state of mind. How movies affect and engage you is relative to your interest too.  Some seem to drag on and you wonder when they will end.  Others keep you at the edge of your seat.  You experience time, books and films, based on what you are open to and ready for on many levels.

What is your intention in writing this book?

The intention in writing the book is to echo every human being is evolving at a unique pace to see and feel reality differently. This is also called expanded consciousness. Many people agree changes appear to be faster. More people are asking why and whether we can influence the nature and pace of what is happening. 

Like Allan and Barbara Pease, in my own way, I offer a perception of The Answer.   Mastering Time shares insights from my direct experience that helps me understand my relationship to time.  Readers are invited to explore what is presented in their timeline, to do exercises in a journal like many of my other books and grow conscious of their own relationship to time. 

What can you do to take this mastering time book and teachings to a practical level?

That is a valid request, to be sure.  Thinking like the masses helps me see the desire exists to get a handle on what is right in front of us but often missed. 

On a practical level,

How can better understanding and Mastering Time help me with relationships?

Your relationship to time mirrors your relationship with money, technology, relationships and much more. Western society is based on perceived connections and interactions.  Still, many people are conditioned to fear getting close to others, because they do not accept love, or because they have no examples or mentors for healthy relationships. These issues relate back to self-love (or lack of it).  It can be identified more consciously during a tailored coaching program.

What about money? Its widely believed time constraints limit the amount of money we can generate or earn.  Do you deal with this in your book?

Indeed I do.  Gaining insight into your beliefs and how you relate to time changes your understanding of money.  In Mastering Time, there is a whole chapter devoted to this called the Economics of Time.  As part of my coaching program, I guide clients to read, including certain books about money preoccupations.  Through my life journey, I have read often, take part in seminars with financially successful people and can relate to varied client situations.  Where relevant, during one-on-one coaching,  I refer to personal examples. This is part of what I am told gives me credibility.  People take you more seriously when you 'walk your talk.'

Can learning more about time help build strength?

Getting to know and express yourself more honestly opens you to vulnerability.  Being honest is the road to inner strength, wisdom and to live feeling more fulfilled. This and the role of core values are explored in depth during my coaching sessions with clients.

As the Zen saying goes, gentleness is strength. To get to that point, you must accept all of yourself first. You have to feel confident and take responsibility for all your choices, the beautiful, the broken, the lost, the found, the wild.

How would you describe your coaching about time? 

How you see anything depends on your conditioning (filters), experience and how aware or tuned in you are to what exists beyond all that. Call my approach to coaching a futuristic form of psychotherapy, a take on ancient shamanism or timeless guidance along your path to fully accept yourself. Every piece of your psyche has a role to play in time and every moment you follow a path to retrieve and integrate a fragmented Soul.

What made you shift from dream analysis and interpretation to focus on time?

Dreamwork and time are not separate. It is true that I used to have a weekly dream analysis and interpretation column.  At some stage I cannot pinpoint in linear time, I experienced a shift that led to me to refer to dreamwork is a tool to better understand time, my relationship to time as well as my clients' relationship to time and life experiences.

You have offered workshops about dreamwork and other topics from your many books.  Why offer a new 7-day program about Time and why now? 

From experience as a workshop and retreat participant, I know 7-day programs jumpstart and motivate people to view themselves and life in a very different way than before.  Based on increasing traffic on the Dreambuilders Australia Blog, the growing readership for my most recent book, Mastering Time, and a recent publisher request for a new book on-time, I am inspired to create a 7-day program that draws from insights in Mastering Time as well as expands on what is covered in the new book.  Notice 7-day programs inspire people to reach new milestones with diet, exercise, well-being, detox, rehabilitation, and more so why not time?   

People ask me, why highlight seven days for my new time-related program?

7 Days to be more time-savvy, is catchy and effective in practice. People are smart, yet benefit from being reminded. It is said it can take 21 says to change a habit, but new approaches, the power of thought and intention can shrink that down. So many things are programmed into our brains based on number seven.  It has subliminal power to transform how we view ourselves. Imagine you recognize the power to create a new world for yourself and give yourself 7-days to get this in motion.  You are divine co-creator. Whatt do you do? Ask clearly what you want from the universe, set your intention and astound yourself with what happens. In a mutually-supportive environment, I see it works again and again.

Seven is also one of the most significant number across religions and cultures. It shows up in stories, film and symbols with good reason.  Across the globe 7 is hugely favourite number. The number seven had a mystical significance for different civilkisations. It was linked with the seven heavenly bodies; the Sun, Moon, Mars, Mercury, Jupiter, Venus and Saturn.  For this reason, some believe, marking rituals every seventh-daymore for the program. I could go on, yet more symbolism is covered in depth in the 7-day program.

Why does it take seven days to build a new world? Does that mean we should create a new world to explore every week? 

This is a question which invites diverse answers, depending on how you relate to time.  No single answer jumps out that everyone can relate to at the same point in time.  The human experience is defined for many based on the parameters of how they see and function in linear time.  Yet the pace at which we create accelerates based on many factors.  These grow more self-evident as your perception of time expands. 

What happens to time when it's quantitative value becomes qualitative?

Time is the veil of consciousness. It is a warehouse for the unconscious to be made aware of and reintegrated into timeless eternity. Objects and subjects are time-released so that they can arise and spin into the collective view for all to experience in joy and fulfillment. Time is a teacher and guide much like the breath and everything else, when you are open to this.

Does time stop ticking if their is no one to watch it? 

Each moment invites us to recognize the nature of the tug-of-war going on within ourselves. The root of inner conflict is perceived change in the space of time, governed in a structure such as a calendar. Ask yourself why we are taught to track moments, seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years expecting, to see something different when we are tught to ground ourselves in the familiar. Part of this journey called life is an exerice in finding courage to step outside the familliar, recognize consciously the choices we are making and be willing to make different choices. Our focus of attention determines what and how we see.

Is there a difference between digital and analog time and how it effects the human condition? 

Being on time is satisfying because we are taught this is expected. Energy is neither lost or gained. It's a balancing act in how to stay calm in a pressurized environment. However, to be purposefully late outside the constraints of time is thrilling because one is essentially being fueled by the exploration of uncharted space. 

How does time effect space and how does your space effect time?

Everything is based on perception. We can talk about this in terms of philosophy, physics and theories, or we can speak about direct experience.  This is the basis on which I work with clients.  I interact with people and discover how they see and engage with the world they create around them. I refer to  A Course in Miracles, and other books relevant to individual cases, take people on hikes.  I alsp offer exercises to help people grow conscious of their relationship with time and space, as well as what they are doing with it every moment. 

Does how we see and interact with time effect our personal and global environments? 

Time management is a rational skill of a chronological disciple whose master becomes crazy at playing with irrational numbers.  Time is the key to everything.  Interact with me and other teachers entering your life more consciously,and listen to intuition more.

What is the relationship or correlation between time and consciousness?

Shadows, gravity, and contrast, fuel movement through time.  Infinite directions exist.

Is there a defining moment that led you to understand time and it's meaning in your life? 

Many experiences have triggered different stages of my awakening.  I share a number of more significant events in my book, Mastering Time.  My previous 10 books share other examples.

Why should humanity be concerned with making time conscious?

Should suggests something is being imposed by an external force.  Another view is that there is a time-release aspect to human DNA that naturally shifts perception of those who are ready to experience energy differently. Thus, no-body actually makes time conscious. Shifts in perception simply change the way we view self from the inside out, including how we see and use time. 

It is said that we live in a dimension of time and space. Is our relationship with time directly linked into finding meaning in life? 

Time is a shell or container but it's skin is made from the sparks found in people's eyes. The eyes are the window to the Soul.

Who are your mentors and inspirations?

Everything is a teacher for me.  Among my books, Transform Your Life: 730 Inspirations offes a glimpse of some of my inspirations. I have always felt drawn to Shirley Maclaine, her spiritual awakening books and teachings. I initially read them years ago, revisted them later, and experienced them in a completely different way. Many of my more recent teachers are modern mystics and often Indian in origin, such as Gopi Krishna, Babaji, Swami Sivananda, Swami Vivekananda, Osho, Sri Swami Satchidananda, Sadhguru, Om Swami, Radhanath Swami and Leonard Orr. A timely Sivananda teaching that stands out is: "There is something good in all seeming failures. You are not to see that now. Time will reveal it. Be patient."

To what do you attribute your current focus in life?

At a certain point in my life, I felt I lost everything that was important only to discover the nature of what truly is.  Experiences in humility are for me life-transforming.

Can you let us know what enables you to master time?

Many steps are unfolding as part of this initiation.  My books In The Flow, Being Harmony and Universal Principles point to different stages, as does my series about Mastering Time. Yet, feeling more at ease with spontaneity, child-like innocence, and hearfelt intuition is part of the process of letting go of fear and self-created limitation. As Marianne Williamson puts it, we Return to Love as we accept who we are.  As the saying goes, more than one road leads to Rome. When the student is ready, teachers appear.

Top 30 Books to Accelerate a Spiritual Journey

Many people appreciate a guide for their own awakening or spiritual journey.  While every path is unique, it is reassuring to know that many books exist to empower you to allow a new world to appear through your own eyes and subtle senses. 

There’s a big difference between people that read loads of books, and people who integrate spirituality into their lives. Being Spiritual is about living with mindfulness, kindness, compassion, forgiveness, and engaging in practices that help you listen deeply and live in greater harmony. Otherwise, you simply add to a mental knowledge base.  Living through the head cannot open the heart, change your energy vibration or transform your life from inside out.

So, empower yourself. Choose one or more of these books below—as they all offer timless wisdom.  Make a point of reflecting on the food for the senses.  Some include journal exercise or you can buy accompanying workbooks.  Read passages slowly.  Breathe deeply.  Allow yourself some quality time and watch what arises within you.  As you find authors whose words resonate with you, find other books and online talks or events that enable you to grow further.  After all, this is a choose-your-own-adventure and you are the protagonist.

In Transform Your Life: 730 inspirations, I offer glimpses of individuals who have directly or indirectly helped me see myself and the world differently. The following is a list of 30 books to help you awaken, appreciate life differently and accelerate your spiritual journey.  Some of these are included in recommendations for further reading in my new Mastering Time book. I invite comments from readers about books that help expand their perception and change their lives.

Be realized

Every moment is a stage of a journey into a perpetual self-discovery. Notice whether you are true to what you feel in the heart. Notice how you view or filter the world through your beliefs and perceptions. This is what limits your awareness of reality.  Its not all that is.

When the inner judge is active, you resist listening to the heart.  Notice which emotions drive you.  Notice whether you believe you must do something to become better than you are.  This restless state of mind resists the obvious. The mind thinks everything you do is a necessary step toward achieving or earning self-acceptance. What if this is misguided?

As you accept who you are, whatever happens is the best case scenario. How does it feel to be authentic? Well, as you feel the way here, and all life choices are stepping stones.  Emotion no longer controls you.  Intuition is trusted inner guidance.  Suddenly, balance, wholeness, vitality, clarity, peace and contentment are here. The seeker is the finder here and now. 

If you ponder the path, yoga is empowering.  It is more than physical stretching and poses.  It is also a way of seeing the world through the clarity of a calm mind and lens of an open heart.  Through regular practice, yoga expands awareness of physical and psychological states.  This enables you to step back, observe your reactions and coping mechanisms.  As yoga practice becomes effortless, second nature, infinite being is reached.  You master self.
