A radical life changing story of how a woman walks away from her 'norm' seeking ancient knowledge first from the Aboriginal Australians and then finding her path being steered towards Tibetan Buddhism.
This is not so much an eloquent blog than it is a true story of a mind that’s not so sure.
The writings you read are not truth but rather a simple perspective of a time that existed and passed. No thought or belief remains the same unless one puts a focus on keeping it the same – and what fun would that be.

As a young girl I would sit silently in nature and shift into trance states of heightened awareness. The inner voice gave me insights, information with a deep sense of peace, love and joy. I thought it was normal at the time.
In my mid-twenties I continued to channel information from my higher self in the form of poems. They always went “deep” with insight – something words can’t describe. I dedicated my life to seeking more about this inner world. I remember someone recommending the Celestine Prophecy book in 1996 and that gave me proof that, yes, I was creating my reality with my thoughts. I tested this theory out the week I had my hands on it.
Throughout my University degree I learnt of counselling and psychology theories that fascinated me, and from this I started studying my own thoughts, beliefs and attitudes. These thoughts were not mine, nor did they come from me. Where did thoughts come from then? And why were they allowed to affect my life?
Soon after I became aware of a matrix of social constructs that each person forms throughout childhood and past experiences. This matrix, or Personal Template, affects us so extremely that it controls how we react to situations, how we feel, whether we succeed or fail at business, our health, and… everything in life. Then I started seeking answers of how to unravel this personal template so I could consciously create my life as I desired. I didn’t want to be a slave to this box any more.
I increased awareness of the present moment to observe the thoughts, attitudes, and my reactions and feelings. This wasn’t easy – as some things a person just doesn’t want to see (as per the “rules of the box” is to continue being a slave to the dictations).
Yet, as it does, a myriad of information came flooding into my reality in the way of meeting new people with knowledge of how to change “things” in the box. I had my energetic vibration aligned to manifest these. This included channelled entities, books and even a very personal practical experience of witnessing myself transform a sabotaging core belief and how changing it (the core belief) healed my physical body.
Aha! Light Bulb moment. YES, indeed it is worthwhile going through the uncomfortable feelings to expand consciousness.
Not surprisingly the next stage of my evolution was introduced to me in the form of emotions and feelings. Flicking thoughts from positive to negative and then from negative to positive changed how I felt in my body. This then expanded to awareness of the 10+1 forms of positivity and, with it, tonnes of scientific evidence that proved the health and well-being benefits of activating positivity daily. WOW. What a delight to get active with that new playground! Of course this deepened the message from my “poem” in 1997:
“Reach inside, not outside. Reach inside, trust your feelings, follow that instinct. Reach inside, ask your higher self – you know you’ll get true, honest and caring answers.
Feel your soul every day as you move in your different daily tasks. Talk more to yourself, wait for an answer, trust your instinct, intuition – your feelings.
It will become easier as the days go by. You’ll be learning to walk with your whole self – your higher self.
Open up your path of light, it will come quickly now. Everything will fall into place within you and you will feel the light and understand the Universe.
It will be good. Take one step at a time. I can see/feel you moving too fast, you can only start from where you are.
Trust your feelings inside, feel the love of the purest white light, reach inside – heal yourself from within.
~ Carmen Wyld 1997
As the energy vibrations within this physical vehicle heightened I was introduced to new spirit guides, different styles of meditation, energy exercises, ancient Indigneous knowledge, mudras and the practice of astral travel.
I continue on this journey expanding my own consciousness in the mundane world as it excites and fascinates.
At the start of writing this blog I introduced it as the writings below. However, after a year, or so, the energies of my thoughts have shifted. I expect it the flavour of my writing to change too – and hence I have written a blog introducing this change. However, for your interest you might like to read the below as it was written when I first started the journey.
I’m a passionate Personal Development Coach (similar to Life Coaching), author of 5 books, and public speaker. I conduct positive psychology staff workshops and positivity laughter yoga sessions for businesses, schools and community groups. I’m also a Reiki Master/Teacher and have led many Reiki and meditation groups and individual sessions. I am dedicated to exploring and expanding myself and my knowledge of reality.
This blogs begins with my insatiable curiousity about the Indigenous people of Australia. Their culture and sustainable way of living intrigues me. I start my wild journey by getting rid of all my possessions and travelling with minimal things to North Australia. I made a few connections with Indigenous people in my home town – which is a great help because they know people in the North who will lead me to knowing even more people, etc. My goal is to listen to the stories of Indigenous people and learn as much as I can about bush living. I further challenge myself to unplug from my current ‘white man’ way of viewing Indigenous culture; to fully immerse myself in their culture to see and feel it through their eyes. What knowledge do the Indigenous people have that can help our crumbling world? My overall goals are: to learn my skin name, song and totem animal, go through tribal initiation(s), and go bush for 30 days (or more) by myself and live off the land. I start with a very basic knowing of camping.
I was born in Ontario, Canada in a Dutch Christian Reformed Church upbringing with caring parents who gave their four children all the right things. Oma and Opa spoke dutch occasionally and we were familiar dutch biscuits and dropjes. Dad was the outdoorsy type and taught me how to clean a fish (It was back in my early teens since I’ve done that!), and took us camping, tobogganing, skiing, camping, swimming, fishing, etc. Mom made hearty meals of meat, vegetables and potatoes and made sure we were happy every day.
In Australia for nearly 20 years, and continue to find that Thanksgiving and Christmas don’t feel right in a warm climate. However, the Rainbow Lorikeets always delight and fascinate as they chatter all day, and as the sunsets. I never have to shovel snow or plug in my car to defrost. And I love how fruit and vegetables grow all year round – outdoors!
At a later age I discovered that I am indeed an intelligent woman (something primary school never taught me) and now hold 5 University Degrees in Counselling, Psychology, Human Resource Management, Childhood and Youth, and Education.
I self-published 5 books.
And published 5 online courses.
It baffles me as to why they come in 5’s! It certainly wasn’t planned that way!
I’m an extremely proud Mother of an HD University student (*frown* she gives me for saying that – as it may not be true for the rest of her degree). Daughters are the greatest, aren’t they? I love her heaps and meaps and forever! And, she’s is the greatest teacher of Snapchat!
