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

‘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.

You are not here to be popular…

‘I am enough, just as I am’

Contrary to what society and the media would have you believe, you are not here to be popular. We live in this fallacy that somehow being or wanting to be popular means we are ok, we are acceptable, we are worthy and so on. We expect others to give us our self worth, our value, and our self esteem. When we give our power over to others we can only expect failure and disappointment.

We set up social media accounts, and we do our best to get as many likes and followers as we can, because that means we are popular, we are liked, so everything in our world is wonderful. Except it’s not, is it? We are the instigators of our lives. How we feel about ourselves cannot be validated by external means. Self worth, self respect, and self esteem, can only be achieved by internal processes, by how we feel about ourselves, and the way we speak to ourselves.

You are here to be you, whoever you are. You are meant to live your life the way you choose, not the way others choose for you. No amount of likes and followers will give you self fulfilment or self acceptance. Looking for others to validate the very person you are, instead of being your own best friend, is like using a sticking plaster. Sooner or later it will fall off to reveal your vulnerable self, that then continues to seek external validation, and so the cycle repeats and repeats.

The greatest gift you can give yourself is to realise that only you have the power to validate yourself, no one else can do it for you. Only you walk in your shoes, so why would you give your power away to others. If you really think about it, what does it mean to be popular? Why would you allow others to tell you that you are good enough, that you look good enough. You are not here to be popular or liked you are here to be just you.

If you are a person that seeks the approval of others, the best advice I can give you is, get to know yourself, work on your self development, meditate, listen to hypnotic cd’s to reprogram your mind of all the negative chat. Stop looking for approval on social media, and be your own best friend. When you stop buying into this popularity contest, then you truly become free, because external approval becomes unnecessary.

We made it through the rain

‘This adventure we call life’

Another year goes by, with it’s twists and turns, and ups and downs. How has it been for you? What did you learn about yourself? Did you triumph over adversity? Did you crash and burn, only to rise from the ashes? Did you find that part of you that you felt was missing? Or did you find out who has your back, and who you can count on?

Life, what is this life we have been given. We never know do we – what lies ahead, what is to come. That is probably a good thing. We have to let each day unfold, in this adventure we call life. It is not easy living everyday, but live we must.

What gets me through each day is gratitude. Being grateful for all I have, and not focusing on what I don’t have. I think about the joy and the love I have in my life, I don’t focus on the pain and the loss. I am but a very simple girl at heart. I don’t have big wants and desires. With me less is more. I love the simple things in life, nature, walking and talking, special friends, my son and my two granddaughters.

2019 has been an amazing year. As I sit in my wicker chair next to my wood burner, mug of tea in hand, I think about all that has gone before this year. What I have achieved, what needs work, and what is still left to do. I took up painting – which still amazes me. I started this Blog – which I love. I met someone very special. A new granddaughter was born this year. And new spiritual truths continue to be revealed to me. So a real year of transformation and change for me.

We made it through the rain. Somehow we survive, we flourish and we carry on to another year, another adventure of life. What’s in store for 2020 – who knows, but, you can be sure it will be full of promise, challenges and love. Here’s to the next instalment of life…….

When Families Fall Apart……

‘Love Liberates’

Christmas is supposed to be a time of joy and togetherness for families, but the sad reality is for a lot of families it is a time of conflict. Differing beliefs, egos, ideas, opinions, all of us jostling for position, to matter, to be heard, can all cause family conflict.

We can put status, and affluence above simple love and family ties. Instead of seeing each other as individuals, each with our own strengths, weaknesses, issues and fears, we expect everyone to live up to our own ideals and ideologies. We forget that we are all different just doing our best, trying to make our way in the world, and make sense of it all.

Our differences in our personalities, our belief systems, our desires, and wants for our own lives, is what brings variety and growth for each of us. Differences in each other can allow us to see things in a new light, which we may not have seen before. We are not all meant to be the same, but we come here for the common good of each other – if only we could see that.

We are all responsible for the way we behave. Only each individual can control their conduct, their thoughts and their behaviour. Love is the core of everything. We are only here to love each other, be respectful, show compassion, and be kind to one another. Everything else is just smoke and mirrors – the layers of self that need to be shed.

It is not that we don’t have a strong family foundation to begin with. It’s just the differences and belief systems are outweighing that very foundation. We must learn to respect each other’s beliefs and life choices, and not to impose our beliefs and life choices on anyone else. It is not acceptable to believe that we are right, and they are wrong.

When families fall apart, ask yourself, what is important, what really matters. Is it our ego self, or is it the basic concept of love and togetherness, and the sharing of each other’s lives, regardless of anything else that really has no substance or merit. The way back to harmony for any family is to love, accept, respect, and not to judge each other. Only then can a family truly heal.
