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 – 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.
