Kia ora and welcome to Light your Life! To this space, place and reality. This is part of my world. I am the explorer of consciousness of all there is.
This online portal has been through many different forms as I evolve and expand my inner world, so does my outer world and offerings.
A few of you who have been following my journey from the start may have noticed many changes, re-brands and refinements and rebirths of my offerings over the years. Not only going back to my Chinese name Yee Ley early this year in 2017 after being called Lily my entire life, changes have been gently (edit: radically) taking place with my website, my belief systems, where I live, my partners, my circle of friends, goodness, even my wardrobe has had a major make-over!!
It was in 2011 that I came out of the so called 'spiritual' closet with the birth of the 'Lil-star' brand offering Reiki sessions and classes with the tag line flavour of that moment 'Helping you Find your Inner Peace'. This was me in London; back then a sought after IT Business Analyst who was ready for the next exciting adventure. I had many clients come see me at my tiny home London clinic where I also held meditation classes whilst still holding down the 'office job' for 3-days a week. It was fun to have the variety as I also dabbled in photography and was part of touch-ruby league in the local area. I also hosted and collaborated with a few other people too - a theme which seems to have carried through to my work today.
In the background I indulged in spiritual classes and workshops with the desire to be a clearer and better version of myself. A new healing theme emerged around freeing my inner-voice and so sound came into my life in a big way.
'Continual refinement of the self' is one way to look at life and is what I subscribe to. In 2013 my inner-compass guided me to an around the world adventure, what some call a soul-retrieval quest as I visited certain places and spaces to help me remember and receive and perceive more of me. I was told I was 'planting many seeds of light' around the globe. I thought I was learning about organic farming/permaculture to be honest as my way of moving out of the mortgage loop. But nonetheless it was a great adventure of fun and laughter for sure, whether I was planting seeds of light or not, I received more of who I be for sure and still continue allow myself to do so today.
The move to NZ
After my year long travel it was clear that New Zealand was to be my new home. It was calling me to come over and so I made the move to the land of the long white cloud in 2014. Being welcomed with opened arms the move to New Zealand was easy. Saying goodbye to my friends was not so easy as I was saying goodbye to a my old life in many ways. But thanks to the internet, I am able to stay connected to loved ones.
The travel experience and move of homes prompted a re-brand of my offerings. I wanted to integrate all that I had explored and my inner-voice work was also getting stronger.
What if everything and anything already exists and it's just up to us to just choose it?
The Lil-star brand changed with a new tag line flavour of 'Exploring the infinite ways of being and creating you'. Bit of a mouth full! But that's what I began to realise was my theme of my life. Well it can be for everyone else. Explore life. Life is there to explore. We are everything, not any ONE thing! I perceived the notion 'we are infinite beings' on a whole new level. It finally dawned on me that What if everything and anything ALREADY exists and it's just up to us to choose it?
What is it we are all choosing and is it working for us? How about that? So there's a lot to explore my friends!!!
Letting go of Lily and Lil*star
As the traveller and explorer of all there is, you get used to packing up, setting up, packing down, letting go and saying a lot of goodbyes, shedding a lot of tears and laughs as well as welcoming many new hello's on all levels. From dear friends, to belief systems and self created identities one of which was Lily.
Lily is who I had been called since birth for 41 years, but ironically it's not on my birth certificate. Yee Ley Lau is my birth name and no-one has ever called me by that name until now (2017). My parents called me Lily as a way to help integrate into UK life and it was a Chinese trend to have an 'English' name. So long story short a French gypsy traveller had a look at my palm and ran some numbers through my name, Yee Ley was more appropriate for my life path as it held the vibration of 'awakening'. Yeah I'll take that! So ta dah....in early 2017 I made the transition from Lily to Yee Ley! Then oh my, everything in my life re-shuffled to align with that vibration.
Lil*star did not make sense anymore as that was a play on the name Lily. So here we go again with another re-brand and a re-shuffle of my offerings. Yee Ley Lau with Light Your Life.
Light Your Life
One of the learnings of the explorer is to travel light. Taking unnecessary items with you physically and metaphorically is just well, too darn difficult, inconvenient and heavy! Always seeking the lighter path, the lighter choice is what I have been learning to do and getting better at and I'd like to share those tools with you. I'm liking making choices that are fun, light and easy. And there are so many ways to do and be that light.
Hence 'Light Your Life' - is the flavour for now. What can you do or be that lights your life?
Light can be interpreted in so many ways from the physical sensations to bringing in more pure divine light into your life and yourselves and your cells.
Light is a form of energy
Light is both obvious and mysterious
Light can make things visible
Light can illuminate, and ignite
What ways can you lighten your own life?
What to expect and not?
So with all of the above, I have to tell you now that being an explorer means that I travel here, there and anywhere in any given moment in all senses of the world. I've been told that I'm in my Aquarian phase of life after being in 30 years of practical grounding analytical Capricorn. This new phase which apparently I've been in for 10 years already, brings a theme of being fluid and going with the flow and bringing about a new ways of living and being that contributes and uplifts universal consciousness.
If you are looking for regular classes at the same location, and monthly top 5 life hack blogs, and multi-tiered training workshops, that's not me anymore.
I ride on the infinite waves of consciousness exploring itself and create expressions when the moment is ripe. I rendezvous with who is ready to meet me there. So what to expect with Light Your Life are moments created for you to explore more of who you be. I facilitate the space of possibilities, a place for you to dare yourself to go beyond what you know and bring through your potent capacities and creative expressions without judgement.
No fancy dancy certificates to give out, no hierarchy levels of ability to achieve, no heady analytical stuff.
Just the space
And In joy
All there is
That YOU ARE.
Where can you find me?
Well, Facebook, online, this web space, on the phone, popping up in different locations around New Zealand.
Online sessions (i.e. FB, phone, zoom, Skype). In person sessions will vary depending on where I travel to. Also the magical mystical wonders of the Universe will ensure a rendezvous will happen when the moment is ripe in response to your ASK that you have been putting out.
With joy, love and light
Yee Ley xx
