Just For Today – in a world of confusion

‘In a world of confusion let the universe guide you’

When the world is full of confusion there is only one thing you can do, and that is let the universe guide you. That means looking to yourself for the answers – because we are the universe.

So many times we look outside of ourselves for the answers, because we think with our heads instead of our hearts. We should ask ourselves how do I feel, not what do I think. Our hearts are our truth centre, and our heads are the outside programmable parts of ourselves. Our heads get filled with nonsense, we watch the news, read the papers and believe that what we are seeing and reading is the truth. You won’t find the truth in other peoples perception and opinion, because most of the time an agenda is at play.

The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth resides in all of us. We were born with the truth, we just need to get quiet, go within, and ask our heart space, what is real and what isn’t.

The world is a confusing place right now, but if you let it the universe will guide you. It will show you the way, the path to take, it will lead you to the truth about yourself and about the world that we live in. It will show you the illusion of it all, the great big illusion we call life. It all starts by being guided by your heart, and only your heart. Feel it, really feel it. Awaken your soul, really feel what it is telling you. The truth of all you are, of all you can be and more starts in your heart. In this world of confusion the universe is guiding you to the truth – can you feel it………

Just For Today – the passage of time

‘Time is an ever flowing river of life’

It was my mothers anniversary last week, she has been gone for 8 years. I can’t believe it has been that long, it seems like only yesterday that I watched her leave this earthly plane. I was sat there thinking about her last week and wondering where does all the time go. It passes us by and we barely notice.

It is funny really my life has changed so much in the last 8 years. I have become more awakened to myself, which has meant that I have gained more insight and knowledge. Insight and knowledge not just about me but about my mother and how so alike we are and I never realised that.

At her funeral I was talking to my mothers sister, we talked about my mother, and we talked about me and why I was such a free spirit and nomadic – and the reason was that my great grandmother was a Romany Gypsy. I never knew that information, my mother had never mentioned that to me. But it did provide a piece of my ancestral history puzzle.

As the years have gone by since her death I have learned more about my mother, who she was and why she behaved a certain way. She was always frustrated in her life, she was always trying to work it out, she was always thinking. She would sit for hours in the kitchen looking out of the window thinking. I believe she was a healer like me and she just couldn’t work it out. She was a very spiritual person, she believed in our creator and she had no fear of death. She knew about life and this reality, but kept it to herself. Her life wasn’t easy and she was sad for most of it. My great sadness is that I wasn’t so awake as I am now when she was alive. I could have talked to her about things, and she would have known that I knew what she was going through because I have gone through the same things.

The passage of time is a great teacher if we pay attention. Time waits for no man as they say. But the passage of time allows us to reflect on the past and see the things more clearly that we didn’t see before. That is certainly true with regards to my mum. The understanding I have of her now helps me to see and understand myself just a little bit more.

Just For Today – Let there be Light

‘You were born to shine, the light inside you will never die’

What the world needs now is for all of us to shine so bright that the darkness has no chance of taking over our world. We were all born to shine. To shine our unique light over the world. Because when the light shines we are unstoppable. We are a force to reckon with. The darkness can never over shadow the light. And our light will never fade.

Right now the world needs us all to come together and shine so bright. To come together as a collective and bathe the world in love, light, and healing energy. We have the power within all of us to change our world, by using our energy to create the awakened shift that the universe is calling out for. Love and light will create our future reality. We need to remember how powerful we really are. The power always lies within us to change things.

The only way to change the course for humanity right now is through a conscious and collective effort to raise the universe to a state of higher vibrational energy, so that nothing can change the course of our awakened evolution. 2020 is the year of vision, and we really need to wake up and see things clearly for what they are. The darkness only wins if we let it. When the light shines we are filled with love, our world is filled we love. We are the light, we are the truth, we exist at this time because the universe needs us. So wake up, remember who you are, we have much work to do.

Just For Today – Lockdown Tuesday

‘Gratitude is at the heart of our souls’

It’s funny the things you take for granted. We live our lives and we don’t really think about things much. I know that sometimes I can get complacent about things and just ride along with life. But today I am feeling an immense sense of gratitude.

It’s Tuesday and I generally go food shopping on a Tuesday, which I did today. I was all overcome with excitement at the prospect of going out and buying my weeks shopping. And I realised for the last month or so I have been getting really excited just to go shopping. Lockdown Tuesday has taken on a whole new meaning.

I am in Ireland at the moment and here we are only supposed to venture out for exercise within 2km of your house. So the prospect of being able to go further afield to do the weekly shop seems really naughty and exciting. I suppose it feels like being let out of the cage and feeling what freedom feels like once a week. So my shopping was bought and brought home and it felt like Christmas.

It made me realise how easily we become conditioned to things. And that is a frightening thought, we mustn’t become conditioned to being restricted. We must always stand up and fight for our freedoms, because without freedom we really do become caged animals. It is up to us adults to make sure that our children, grandchildren and our great grandchildren are afforded the same freedoms that we have enjoyed in our lives.

It is a beautiful day here again. I am filled with gratitude for the sun that warms my face, and gratitude for Lockdown Tuesday with it’s abundance of healthy and nutritious food.

Just For Today

‘Will our lives be as before, or will our consciousness be ever expanded’

You do wonder where this will all lead. I wonder if our lives will ever be the same again? When you see the way we have to queue up at the supermarket like little ants or robots, all waiting for the nod that it is our turn to walk up and down the aisles collecting our essential food items. How quickly we have conformed to the narrative of social distancing.

It is very sad to see. How I want to go back to my normal way of shopping. With me there is no method in the madness. I randomly go from one end of the shop to the other, crisscrossing my way with no uniformity, I don’t do uniformity. I am sick of this China inspired way of living. Next we will all be told how to walk down the street, stomping our legs up and down while we swing our arms by our sides. We will be told it is an updated form of social distancing and it saves lives ‘walk like a prat, do as you are told, stay home, save lives’

Aside from that it has been another beautiful day, a bit colder, but the sun has shone. I am biding my time right now, waiting for travel restrictions to be lifted so I can travel, I am counting the days. I know that life is about experiences, but this is one experience I am not enjoying. I do wonder how many lies are being told. Peoples lives are being turned upside down and for what. I look at the politicians and all I see is liars, everyone of them. But I do believe in the end goodness always wins and the truth always emerges. People will always seek out the truth. That is why we have intuition and gut feeling it is our barometer to the truth. You can’t hide from the truth because the truth always comes knocking.

My Sweet Valentine

‘Til my kiss breaks the hush that makes you mine’

In glow, in murk, in the hours between,
When day turns to night and night turns to day.
A hearty fire burns hot, though unseen,
It draws us onward to Heaven’s stairway.
Hoisting sail upon unflinching mast,
The wind will carry us through Winter’s gloom.
Future is forward behind us is Past,
Always in season our Love’s flowers bloom.
The stars shine down upon our rosy quest.
In silence they sit high above the ground.
This world attended by such timeless guest;
My world, forever to you it is bound.
‘Til my kiss breaks the hush that makes you mine,
My winged words to you My Sweet Valentine.

There is no going back

‘I am all I will ever need’

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but life sucks sometimes. Most of the time life isn’t an easy ride. It can be painful and hard, and if that wasn’t enough people can and will let you down. People sometimes think because you are very spiritual and wise that you have all the answers, that your life is all strawberries and cream, and love and light. Well it’s not. I wish I could say that when you become awakened to the realities of life, that things change for the better. Actually they don’t. In fact your life becomes harder because you know what is out there, and you know all of this reality is just pure nonsense.

You have to learn to really rely on yourself, to really have your own back. Because the chances are most of your friends and family will still be asleep to the realities of life. So you find yourself alone, an outcast, and that is when the real work begins. Once you have opened the box you can’t put it back, authenticity is calling you, and keeps calling until you listen. You soon work out that you have to be all you will ever need.

We are all spiritual people, just most of us don’t realise that, and the ones that do carry the burden of knowledge. Never really feeling like you fit in, because for the most part you don’t. We live in a society that is fake, and is built on lies and greed. When you know the truth about life how do you fit into that. I think one of the hardest parts of living in this world is to be really honest with yourself about how your life is going to be. I knew that by being authentically me I would lose friends and family. It can be a heavy price to pay for living in the truth.

I didn’t realise how much I would lose, and if I am honest there is a part of me that had I known what the price was for my awakened state, I would have kept the lid on the box shut. The world owes you nothing. We are here to create our lives, and through a lifetime we start over many times. I have had to start my life again, without many of the people that I love, because they turned their back on me. Does it mean you should become angry and bitter? No. It means becoming the opposite of what you receive, you forgive and you continue to love them. And in time you see that, that is real spiritual growth. But sometimes, just sometimes you wish for the life you had before.

There is no going back, you can only move forward in your life, and deal with whatever life throws at you. The only person that you can really rely on is you, and the only person you will ever need is you.
