Love is the universal coin, the energy that makes the world go round. Everything we are here for is about love.
Realising it, and also recognising the absence of it when that occurs, which it does to all of us at some point, in some way. In that moment, the memory of love, the hope of love is often what sustains us – be it intimate, parental, friendship, self.
Some people may disagree and believe that it is money that makes the world go round (that old adage!) but actually, even there, it is the love of money isn’t it, and the fear of not having it?
Love is the magic that moves mountains; the power that transforms; the water that nourishes growth and the honey that is the nectar of life…if we can allow it to be what it is and to work its’ beautiful magic freely and without the constraints of wants, needs or demands.
Love’s magic demands courage and it demands freedom.
I was sitting here on this lovely Saturday evening working on my next book when I was suddenly inspired to change tack and write this post for my site.
It is 20 May and tomorrow it will be one month until my birthday and it has taken me until one month and a day before my 46th birthday to be truly happy with who I am and with where I am. This realisation came to me earlier – that I am totally and truly happy and at ease with me.
It wasn’t a wow moment. It was a simple moment of realisation from deep within and then overwhelming gratitude for that.
I’ve been in the fortunate position recently (dependent on point of view!) of having a foot operation and therefore having to take a couple of months out of working.
I say I have been fortunate as I didn’t realise just how much time out and time off was needed until my body had to rest and my mind decided it wasn’t going to carry on functioning as normal!
Breathe Light, Live Love
An inspiration given to me by one of the trance energies I work with – Morning Star as I have named ‘her’ as the energy feels very graceful, very gentle and feminine in nature.
What does light do? It chases away shadow; it brightens the darkest day. It lifts us to a place of hope when in despair and to a place of grace when in grief. Can we really breathe light? I believe we can. I believe we breathe it into ourselves, into our being, into our very soul. I also believe we breathe out light too.
2017 is a year that will ask you who you are and then ask you if you truly believe that. ..and then it will challenge you to prove it.
Much has been written about 2017 being a ‘1’ year – new starts, new beginnings and so forth. Yesterday I pulled some cards as a general overview for the year for my facebook page (details of the reading can be found here) with the greatest sense of the energy being that we will be working with mastery and understanding of the Self.
The Self – the big ‘I’. The no 1. Putting a foot on the first rung of a new ladder which is taking us inward, not outward. All outward accomplishments this year will be a reflection of where we are internally and what we have achieved within ourselves.
There’s a theme running through my life and work at the moment of connecting more fully with the self, appreciating who we are and recognising the divinity that we are are part of, although even as I say this it is not really a new theme but perhaps on this full super moon evening that connection with the divine part of us needs to be more appreciated, more acknowledged so I am guided to ask: If you were to write a letter (of thanks perhaps?) to your soul what would it say? Why not try it and discover what you might be drawn to say…what you might be drawn to release, recognise and appreciate also about yourself.
Some of my letter is below. Blessings xx
I don’t know where to start so I will just start somewhere and hope it leads to something. And really that is also part of what I want to express to you – thank you for always pushing me to start somewhere and trusting that it will lead to something.
Thank you for trusting me when I didn’t trust myself. Thank you for being the quiet patience in my noise, the watchful observer in my madness. Thank you for not giving up and for being more stubborn than I am. Thank you for ensuring you relit my light more quickly than I could blow it out!
Who are we?
Do we know who we are? It might depend on whether who we are is determined by how we view or define ourselves or how we allow others to define us.
Do we call ourselves what we do? And if we do, then I would ask the question ‘do you only do that one thing?’ If you are a mum or a dad, if someone asked you who you were and that is what you said, whilst it might be a large aspect of who you are at this moment, it is not all you are. We might define who we are by our shape or physical appearance – slim, curvy, beautiful, plain, old young…but is that really who we are? Continue reading
