I gave an Angel card reading to the lovely Sarah Clark, who is a member on the site High Heeled Guide to Enlightenment. Sarah, kindly interviewed me after the reading, wanting to find out more about Angels, Angel card readings and Moi!
You can find the interview on her blog Relentlessly Positive
It seems fitting that I drew the card of Mary Magdalene, it being Easter week. The card has one word on it - FORGIVENESS!
Whatever your religious views on who the Mary Magdalene was, she is a part of historical and spiritual significance, in the Jesus story.
Where there is controversy there is always some truth, even if it be distorted. The fact that there has been such heated debate at who she was in relation to the man Jesus is evidence that 'truth' has been hidden.
Legend says that Mary Magdalene was from Magdala, on the shores of the Sea of Galilee, where her family had a castle called Magdalon; she was the sister of Lazarus and of Martha, and they were the children of noble parents some say, royal descendants of the House of David. On the death of their father, Syrus, they inherited vast riches and possessions in land, which were equally divided between them. (Taken from the Nazareen way of Essene Studies)
In Wikipedia it says, 'In recent years there has been a great restoration of the New Testament figure of Mary Magdalene as a patron of women's preaching and ministry. ..........recognition that Mary Magdalene has been the victim of a historical defamation of character........repentant prostitute in historical tradition,....'
According to all four Gospels she was the first person to see the resurrected Christ.
Mary Magdalene is referred to in early Christian writings as "the apostle to the apostles."
In apocryphal texts, she is portrayed as a visionary and leader of the early movement, who was loved by Jesus more than the other disciples.
The Gospel of Mary, written in the second century, see Mary as the special disciple of Jesus who has a deeper understanding of his teachings.
Many speculations, have emerged regarding Mary that she was Jesus' wife and even that she bore some children by him.
The Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox, and Anglican churches see Mary Magdalene to be a saint,being celebrated on July 22. The Eastern Orthodox churches commemorate her on the Sunday of the Myrrhbearers which is the second Sunday after Pascha (Easter).
Celia Fenn in her site starchild writes about Easter as, 'In the traditional Christian community, it is the celebration of the Death and Resurrection of Jesus. But, in reality, it is a reworking of the ancient archetypal story of the death of the masculine principle and its miraculous rebirth and resurrection through the Feminine principle.'
Celia continues to say, 'So, how did this ancient story become a central part of the celebrations of the Christian year? In the case of the Christian story, there was indeed a masculine and a feminine principle incarnated in Yeshua and Mary Magdalene. They came to the Earth as Avatars to bring the seeds of the New Consciousness, that which we call the Christ Consciousness, to the western world. This was done through the work and teachings of both of them in Israel, and later by Mary Magdalene in France. The Seeds of the Christ Light that are flowering now were laid down two thousand years ago.......'
Back to forgiveness!
Easter is a time to lay down to rest all that has gone, is not serving us and to re-birth, resurrect our cleansed spirit. So whatever story you believe in about Mary Magdalene, her message today is universal - Forgiveness!

Without love, there is no hope.
Without love, there is no joy.
Without love, there is no solution.
Without love, there is no future.
You may give money.
You may give 'stuff'.
You may talk about love.
But without having love,
They are empty gestures.
Empty like the heart that gives -
Out of duty,
Out of guilt,
Out of confusion.
You will see problem,
Only love can heal.
Forgiving and true.
Love is the only way!
Look at your relationships in this way,
look at your situations today
Where am I not loving?
Do not look at him or her to blame.
Only look at them to see the reflection,
of who you are
Are they unhappy?
Are they sad?
Are they mad?
What is it in YOU that is making you project unhappiness?
What is it in YOU that is making you project sadness?
What is it in YOU that is making you project madness?
Remember, Love is the only way!

Meditate - 'Think deeply and quietly' (Oxford pocket school dictionary)
Most people are more familiar with another meaning to meditate - the lotus position with eyes closed with an expression of serene peace.
Another explanation of meditate is taking the two above explanation and using them to describe what meditating allows you to do.
If prayer lets you speak to God!
Mediation lets God speak to you!
How does this tie in the two explanations?
When we pray, we may not be sitting crossed legged, but we do turn our thoughts inward to find that place of peace to give our woes or praise to God.
When we meditate we are just being present in the moment, allowing thoughts to float by. In this quiet space we are able to 'hear' 'deep thoughts, quietly' thoughts from God, your guides, the Angels, your higher self. This is when you are able to be with the Divine.
Being in nature can help the process of meditation, either in the deep thinking, or the being still, they are both direct channels to God.

Spring is here!
What better reason to have a clear out?
Put things into one of three bin liners;
1. Things I want to keep.
2. Things that can be 'fixed'.
3. Things I need to throw out.
Put back what you are keeping in a neat fashion. Do it with love, clean the item (yes even if is a tin of beans).
Make a point of 'fixing' those items that can be used. If you haven't done it by the end of the week - yes only a week - then get rid!
Throw the ones in the 'throw away' bin liner the same day, do not leave it lying around to gather dust.
Now, look at your cupboard, room, house, depending on what you have been clearing out. Does it need something to make it look better, fuller, more functional?
If so, choose items with care. Put thought into what you are bringing into that space. Run these choices through the following;
1. Do you LOVE it? (O.k if it's food for the cupboard ask, will you eat it, or will it just stay there until your next clear out?)
2. Is it functional? Again adjust your questioning to the situation. If it is a food cupboard, you could ask, 'Will it give me the vitamins I require or fill me with loads of empty calories?'
3. Does it work well with the rest of the items?
Job well done!
This brings in a rush of fresh energy and gives you the boost to tackle the trickier aspects of life, like having a clear out of your life!
One step at a time. Today, work on the external, when you are ready, you can work out on you.

I used the Saints and Angel Oracle cards by Doreen Virtue, for today's message. As I am following my guidance from Spirit, I sometimes don't know straight away what the message means. I pick the card, then if the understanding doesn't come straight away, I go and do something normal, like make a cup of tea (Tea always makes everything alright, for me!)
As I was making my tea, the message sunk in!
On your journey of life you may meet obstacles, but if you carry the Christ/Christ Consciousness within you you will be safe.
What does this mean for Christians and non-Christians alike?
The way I understand it is - Whatever you do in your life, be mindful of your connection to Source, be accepting that you are not alone, and remember the love in all that you do.
Saint Christopher became known as the Christ Bearer, because he carried Christ across the river. One day, a little child asked him to take him across the river. The child seemed heavier than lead, and Christopher found himself in great difficulty. When he finally reached the other side, he said to the child:
"You have put me in the greatest danger. I do not think the whole world could have been as heavy on my shoulders as you were."
The child replied: "You had on your shoulders not only the whole world but Him who made it. I am Christ your king, whom you are serving by this work." The child then vanished.
As Saint Christopher carried people safely over the river, so will we be safe when we come across obstacles in our path if we have the Christ Consciousness within us.

You cannot solve a problem with the same mind that created the problem!
When you have something on your mind which is bothering you, it may seem a huge problem which seems impossible to fix.
Sometimes we need to see it from a different perspective. But finding the will to shift to that other perspective, when your mind is so perplexed with 'stuff' can be very difficult.
If you are a visual person following is a way to help you gain the perspective with ease:
1. Visualize putting your problems into a basket which is full of something you associate with pure love. It could be puppies, flowers, hearts, Angels.
2. Leave your problems with these loving beings, knowing that just by being in their presence, all the confusion and pain of the problem will just disappear.
3. When you feel ready, look back into the basket and take your 'problem' from amongst the Love.
4. If you still see the problem in the same way, you need to ask yourself whether you believe in this picture of love. If not, choose another image.
5. This time when you place your problems back into the basket with the love, be honest and ask for their help stating that you can't fix this by yourself.
6. When you look again in the basket, all you will see is pure LOVE.
Now you have a different perspective!
Your reference point being LOVE.

Yesterday's post was about leaving your life in God's hands. It was about acknowledging that we do not have to worry, because what happens is not really in our hands. We are co-creators, in that we can create our dreams, follow them and succeed in them, but what happens along the way, really, is not possible to fore tell.
It is like finding out what your purpose in life is. Can you really dream your purpose?
Can you follow a dream and think that because you enjoy it it must be your purpose?
It seems that having a purpose in life and finding out what your purpose is in life gets very fuzzy. They are not the same, even if they do overlap.
God/Source/Divine, knows what you where created for, because you were made by God. You can create situations, you can think ideas you can even find purpose in all you create, but how do you know what was God's purpose for creating you?
You can only do this by looking to God.
You do not find out how that builder built that house by asking yourself. You can find out how to build a house by reading books on how to build a house, or attend a course, or even speculate. You need to ask that builder how he built that house and for what purpose.
When you want information about something you go to the SOURCE (God)
So, we have our dreams, we have our patience, our faith, we put in the work and we respect that each venture (dream) is unique and we end up with a reality. Does this give us the purpose we so crave?
It may give you purpose, but are you any nearer to knowing what you are doing here, why you are on this earth?
If it doesn't bother you, then, carry on with your dreams, sow your seeds and wait patiently, believe in yourself using all the ingredients of success at your feet.
If you are not fulfilled with this reality, then you are asking,
'What is my purpose?'
Ask God, ask with an open mind. Forget all you know (for now) about achieving your goals, forget all you have learnt about looking within (for now). Ask God you want to know your purpose.
He may send you the answer with your Angels, you may find out through your soul's chosen spiritual teacher; Jesus, Holy Spirit, Buddha etc. You may find out through your Higher Self.
'Ask, and it shall be given you; seek; and you shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. [Matthew 7:7-8]

God is in charge!
How does this sentence make you feel?
Does it make you feel uncomfortable?
Does it make you feel small?
Does it make you feel scared?
Does it make you feel relief?
It may make you feel a combination of the above. Depending on your perception of who God is, whether you believe in a fearful God, or a compassionate, loving God.
If you see God as a God that you must fear, then you may feel scared. You may think that, 'I am a sinner, so if God is in charge, I'm done in for!'
If you see God as a God who is compassionate and full of Love then you may think, ' I am a sinner, so if God is in charge, I feel relieved, for He can show me the way'
If we take the second scenario and believe that God being in charge is a good thing, then we can give all our worries to God and his Angels.
We can say, 'God, I can't do this alone, I ask you to be in charge. You have given me free will, but I want your will to be in charge. Whatever you say I will do, please give me courage to follow it through.'
That sounds sort of scary though, even if we believe God is loving and kind. What if God makes us leave all our possessions behind? What if God makes us leave our Home, and our loved ones? What if God makes us do something we don't like?
God will not make us do anything we cannot do. When you believe God is really in charge, you gladly, let Him take the reigns.
Following His 'orders' will feel natural. You will feel safe and secure in the knowledge that you have God on your side.
You may have to change your life, you may have to move home, you may have to leave people. God knows how much you can take, and in all this you have your own will too.
God is in charge, but you are co-creators in your life!

Even ideal situations sometimes require adjustments as you move forward. Patience pays off and so does having faith and eventually you can reap the rewards. But there are times when it seems you need something else, as well to make things happen.
I planted a variety of seeds a few weeks ago and some have made a show. They have sprouted out, courageously, fearless of what is in store for them.
I planted some sweet corn, courgettes, tomatoes, chives and aubergines. My sweet corn were the first to show their little pale green stem. I made such a fuss over the first one, welcoming it into the big wide world.
The following day I noticed another had sprouted, then another and another. I made the same amount of fuss to these newcomers whilst my children looked on in disdain.
I checked on the other seeds to see their progress and noticed that there didn't seem like much was happening. By the evening when I checked again, I saw that the chives were making a show too.
It bothered me though why my other seeds had not made a show. A barrage of questions came out;
Had I done something wrong?
Did I add too much water,too quickly?
Did I not put enough soil?
Was I not being patient enough?
Did I not have faith that they would grow?
Did they not like me singing to them?
This morning I had a lovely surprise. I found that one of my tomato seeds had germinated and had become a little sprout. I was elated, I welcomed it like the others. This restored my faith and made me realize that my analogy of seeds being dreams had a new component in it - RESPECT for the uniqueness of each seed (dream).
The new equation is as follows;
DREAM (SEED)+ PATIENCE + FAITH + WORK + RESPECT = REALITY
Respect your individual dreams, however similar they may seem to other peoples or other ideas. Respect that each dream needs its own time to develop and grow into the reality you want it to become.

The Angelic realm has its own hierarchy like all societies. The Angels and the Archangels are the Angelic beings assigned to look over us humans. We are very loved and supported at all times.
When we ask our Angels for help we are helping them to evolve as well. So if you are not good at asking for help, remember that by asking you are helping the Angels. So go ahead and ask for help. Nothing is too big or too small!
Following is a video of all nine orders of the Angels.

It is good to take a journey sometimes! You can recharge your batteries, lose yourself in the moment and see things from a different perspective.
But, it is even better Coming HOME, especially if home is where you associate where the heart is!
Yesterday, I took myself off to venture into my own thoughts, my own feelings, following my own counsel. It was very insightful, but very lonely!
I felt very far away from Home, very far away from my heart!
Even though, I enjoyed my loneliness in the beginning, feeling quite rebellious and independent, after a while, I felt quite empty and dis-connected!
When I opened my eyes this morning and looked out of the window at the sky, I felt a sudden feeling of recognition. I knew I was back Home, I felt back on line with who I am and what I am doing here.
Yesterday, I took myself off on a journey into the world of my mind, I did not want to be in my heart. The further I drifted, the more confused and lost I became.
But, one thing helped me not drift too far - the memory of Home! I knew with not only my mind, but my heart, that I could return back Home whenever I felt like it.
With one little shift of perception, I could be back Home!
Sometimes, we need to venture off alone, to realize what we have back at HOME!

I haven't picked a card today!
I haven't picked a crystal!
I feel I want to be in my own thoughts and take my own counsel.
I haven't forgotten my Angels, and I am still carrying my crystals with me, but I feel I need to give another message today.
The message of trusting your own counsel.
But what if your own counsel is rubbish?
So be it!
It is learning to trust that whatever thought you receive, whether you believe it is from the Angels, God, the Universe, you are a part of this equation too.
So, today, I am not listening to the Angels, I am having a day off.
It doesn't mean that they are not there waiting with love, for us to ask for assistance or whisper some loving message into our consciousness. For they do not leave our side, but they respect our wishes.
As humans, we have free will and this can rule the roost sometimes. My will is ruling today. I don't want to listen to anyone, not even my beloved Angels.
I want to feel sorry for myself, and be a little selfish. I want to not be wise, or gentle. I want to be irresponsible and lazy!
I almost hear a few giggles!
I see in my mind's eye a flurry of material swishing off.
My angels are having a laugh with me. They don't take my moods seriously, they understand that I need them now and then, but always see the funny side of things.
I 'imagine' they are ruffling my hair saying as you do to an impetuous child,
'You in a bad mood?'.
This puts me in a badder mood, stomping my feet as a child.
'I can't hear you so go away!'
I suddenly think that I should apologise as I don't really want them to go, so I just ask them to be patient with me today, as I am having a 'woe is me' day.
I picture them smiling and I feel all warm and safe.
It doesn't matter how hard we try to block out the guidance, from God, the Angels, the Universe, we are always loved and supported, and they wait patiently for our requests for help.
So go ahead, listen to your own counsel today if you want, if you get it all wrong, there is always another day and another way, and of course you can always ask your Angels!

Dreams and desires are like seeds. You need to plant them, look after them by watering them, making their environment right for growth. In a previous post I devised an equation for making your dreams come a reality;
DREAMS + FAITH + PATIENCE = REALITY
This is true, but there is one part of the equation missing - putting in the work, for example, your dream is to become a writer. Dreaming about it is the first step, having faith and patience that it will happen is also important,but if you don't write, how will your seed(dream) grow roots.
You plant your seed (dream), you water it and clear the weeds (work on your dream) then you wait(patience) and believe (faith) that it will grow - become a reality!
The guidance today suggests each day to take steps towards making your dream come true. It does not matter at what stage the seed is in, even if the seed is not yet an idea.
They say that plants grow if your talk to them. Talk to your dreams too. Positively affirm that the plant is big and strong and ready for sowing.
Of course, seeds still grow if left to the forces of nature. But the wind may carry the seed off into other directions, it may not be planted on ideal soil, it may be weak and wither away.
The point is you need to be an active part of your life, just as you need to be active if you want to be a good gardener.
Grow with Love!

'Hatred does not cease by hatred, but only by love; this is the eternal rule' Buddha.
Where does hatred come from? If all there is is LOVE?
In A Course of Miracles, it says that anything which is not love is fear!
Is hatred fear?
Is hatred fear of love?
If God is love, does this mean when we feel hate, are we far from GOD?
It is true that there is duality in life;
NIGHT and DAY
BLACK and WHITE
HOT and COLD
LOVE and HATE
You cannot do both at the same time. When there is Day there is no Night. If it is Black it is not White. When you Hate you do not Love.
You can hate because there is love, but you do not hate because you love.
As Buddha says, 'Hatred does not cease by hatred..'
You cannot stop hate by hating more. What you give power to, grows! You will find more reasons to hate, see more evidence around you to hate.
You can only stop hate by LOVE. '....This is the eternal rule'

I received this lovely award from the lovely Karen at Fiction for Dessert I am to pass this award to fifteen of my favourite blogs. They are as follows:
lessons from the monk I married
Elles Daily inspirations
Chronicles of Sharnia
A life of Miracles
I'd rather be Blogging
Waves upon the Shore
Heather Conroy's Verbal Report
I love each blog for different reasons. I seem to end up in the blog that my Soul knows I will find a precious jewel of wisdom, a smile, or a feeling of love and friendship.
Thank you lovely bloggers!
When we think of LOVE, we do not associate it with control.
The romantic notion of LOVE conjures an image of two free souls flying in the ethers, oblivious to anybody else. There is psychedelic '70s music playing in the background where everything seems in slow motion. There are sunflowers, warm sun and there are no worries in the world, you're in heaven. (This image is taken from the Movie Forty Year Old Virgin!)
CRASH!!!! Back down to earth!
Once the honey moon period ends which in biological terms means when there has been enough time given so that the human species can reproduce, that 'loving feeling' suddenly disappears and seems a very distant memory.
How long does this lurvvvvve feeling last?
Generalizing now, anything from two months to eighteen months. But this is very general. It depends on external influences.
When the lurvvvve feeling goes, so do the rose tinted glasses. You see your love interest with cynical, even critical eyes. Suddenly your love conquest becomes someone you need to keep down at any cost.
This is not done in an obvious way (unless the individual has extreme trust issues) but little questions (gestapo style) start spilling out of your mouth.
You suddenly feel insecure, and try to recapture that initial loving feeling but cannot, so you rationalize that it's because he/she doesn't love you anymore.
Whereas before, there was not much conversation, for you to notice that you have absolutely nothing in common other than a physical attraction, now it is glaringly obvious that you have nothing in common, not even the physical.
This is where the 'relationship' might end (which realistically is a good idea if you notice there is no hope of your minds ever meeting!)
But, if you are a romantic, insecure, hopeful,or all three then you stick to it and think I will get him/her to love me AGAIN!
It was not LOVE love to begin with it was LUST!!!!!
Any way the control takes over which is of course, born out of fear and insecurities.
Suddenly, all these unspoken demands pop up from nowhere and if they are not psychically known then there are upsets, fights,stomping of the foot and weeping into your best friend's arms (hopefully not a friend of the opposite sex which spells disaster), saying that, you don't know why they've changed!
No, they have not changed, you can now see them as they ARE!!! And they can see you as YOU are!!
Control,is not only about expecting something from another it is also about expectations of situations.
For example, a woman may expect that the natural course of a relationship is to move in have kids(if you haven't had one already) and get married. Or you pretend you don't want to get married but live in fuming hope, becoming resentful each day because you are not being asked to become the wife, where you made it clear when you met that you are a free spirit and don't want to get married....... blah blah blah!
This is where communication needs to be learnt. NoW is when you need to tell each other what you want from each other. The lust stage didn't need you to communicate much as instinct ran most of the show.
Now, is where you tell each other what you want and listen to what the other wants.
'But that's not romantic, if he/she loves me they should know!!!!'
Who says that they should know?
Where do we get these presumptuous ideals?
'Love is patient,
Love is kind.
It does not envy,
It does not boast,
It is not proud.
It is not rude,
It is not self-seeking.
It is not easily angered,
It keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil
But rejoices in the truth.
It always protects,
1 Corinthians 13: 4-7
The Angel guidance for today speaks of Abundance needing FAITH! Abundance is not just material gain, it is LOVE and JOY!
If we do not LOVE unconditionally, we cannot accept JOY, we cannot give LOVE and JOY!
Start today, by releasing control of situations, accept that 'GOD is in charge!' and give yourself some unconditional LOVE.
Then when it is time to share that LOVE, it will be coming from a pure place of LOVE and not control!

It still catches me off guard how one minute I can be soaring with the stars and then I am burrowing into the ground like a worm.
I am very sensitive to energy shifts, be it from the heavens or from people around me. I awoke with a heaviness I couldn't explain, other than I must have had a tiring dream night and there were things my sub conscious was still working on and my everyday consciousness, had not caught up yet.
I thought music would lift my spirits. So I turned the volume up and had a little dance (I waited for the kids to go to school of course, I don't want to give them disturbing nightmares!)
The music on the radio was from a time way back when I was a teenager myself. I was catapulted back to that time, and I remembered how much I loved to dance. Whatever was going on in my life I loved to 'boogie' (God am I that old?).
My troubles faded away and my limbs felt nimble and agile. I was a teenager again, attractive, carefree (not that I was a carefree child, I was born an old soul) and then I caught sight of my reflection in the mirror.
Argh!!!..... I've become one of those 'oldies' I used to laugh at dancing away at the 'DISCO'. It didn't matter how well they shook their stuff, the face, did not match the the rest of the 'package'.
So, I stopped...sat back down... and felt my energy just leave me.
As soon as I sat down a million other insecurities came knocking for my attention.
- I'm a crap Mum
- I'm a rubbish partner
- I don't have a proper job
- I am just a dreamer
- I am all talk and no action
On and on the list goes on.
Then for the finale, I started to think of my Mum. She died four years ago and even though I don't need the help of my 'happy' pills any more (anti depressants, not some illegal drug!) I still am taken aback at how intense my grief can be, especially when the 'tide is ebbing!'
I didn't feel very positive to post my Angel guidance early this morning, so I decided to check what was happening over at THHEGS. I joined the group Music-Soulfood on the network and read a comment by a fellow member. It was about music that reminded her of her Mum, who was in Spirit.
That was it, I went down a road that I knew would bring more pain. I listed all the songs that reminded me of Mum, since she passed away. I wrote my comment about it, cried a bucket full and then slumped over the computer, totally spent.
Tha Angel guidance for today suggests that there are cycles in life and with each ending of a cycle there is pain and grief. The Angels remind us we are not alone and if we ask, they are there to give us comfort and guidance for the next step.
Like the ebb and flow of the tide, it is a certain. There is pain/difficulty then there is happiness.
In times of low tide, maybe we just need to Stop and Surrender to the feelings it brings, however painful.
Soon enough, the tide will flow back, bringing with it new experiences, may be even some old experiences for you to 'notice' and then to let them go.
So instead of the mantra 'Go with the Flow', my new mantra is
GO with the EBB and FLOW!

'Don't be afraid of the space between your dreams and reality. If you can dream it, you can make it so.'
The Angel guidance today suggests that whatever you desire will come true! It asks you to be patient and to have faith and not to 'force' things to happen.
'Making things happen is an equation,it is as follows:
If we do not have one of these components it will not manifest, or it will manifest in a way which is not in the best interest for everyone involved.
The crystal for today is Clear Quartz, it is a master crystal, it speeds things up, it makes things happen, it makes all things clear.
Use the energy of the Quartz to clear your intentions releasing your dream off into the Universe.
As the quote by Davis states:
'Don't be afraid of the space between your dreams and reality'
Release your dream having no expectation, releasing the need to control situations.
'If you can dream it, you can make it so.'
If you can dream it, it will become a REALITY.
Have FAITH and PATIENCE!

When we go through a big release, we may feel fluey, achy and panicky. It is the body's way of releasing toxins. It is the same when you receive a healing from a therapy such as Reiki or Crystal Therapy.
The physical body is just one aspect of who we are. We are made of subtle energetic bodies as well that are sensitive to external influences. The external create the internal thoughts, the thoughts create the feelings and this leads to behaviour and action.
It does not stop there. The internal, which with time become ingrained thoughts and behaviours react with the external. This is where old patterns and beliefs become fixed and difficult to change.
Exercise helps the process of removing 'stuff'. It helps to clear the mind, cleans the chakras ( energy centres in the body) and helps with elimination.
An exercise like yoga is ideal because it uses breath and slow intentional movements, putting yourself into your body. You become one with your spiritual being, having a full body, mind and spirit workout.
There is a time to just BE!
There is a time for MOVEMENT!
There is a time to PLAY!
A time to SLEEP!
A time to WEEP!
Enjoy each moment,be in your own body, experience life through this vehicle we have been given. Look after it, honour it, trust it that it will look after your Spirit whilst on your journey on Earth.
Feed it with Soulfull food, exercise it with gentle movements, rest it with deep sleep and calming moments.
Fill it with awe, expelling the old, outdated patterns, allowing space for the new.
Pamper it, love it, adorn it, but do the same for your Spiritual being it houses.
You are a Spiritual being on a human journey. Combine the two to understand who you really are!

Today, I have been made to stop in my tracks and change direction with everything I have tried to do. I started writing my blog early this morning, but the computer was not responding! I was being thrown out of the blog, I could not upload any photos and the keys on the key board kept getting stuck.
In the end I had ran out of time and I needed to be out of the house in 10 minutes to see my student that I mentor. Once at school, I 'knew' the student would not turn up. Am I psychic? Maybe, but more to the point, I was taking note of what was happening around me.
My student didn't turn up, I asked for him to be sent to me and we had a little chat about honouring the mentoring relationship. I gave him the options to stop meeting or to continue. If he wanted to continue, he had to be HERE!
On the bus journey home, a girl came on the bus and my thoughts jumped to a soap opera I had watched the previous evening where the girl looked like one of the actors. I was thinking that the scene in the soap was quite intense as it was a gang of teenagers intimidating a girl.
Whilst I was in my random thought, I heard a couple of women sitting behind me, mention the same scene, I was just thinking about. 'How freaky!' I thought. But was it freaky?
I have been having these synchronicity meetings non-stop recently in one way or another. Following are some example;
1) I am typing a word and someone on the T.V. says the exact word at the same time I am typing.
2) I am reading and the word I am reading is either said by someone on the T.V or the kids.
3) I check my mail and I receive a Newsletter from the Medical Intuitive Caroline Myss and her article is on 'Synchronicity'.
4) My writing reflects what other people are saying.
So, what is happening?
We need to stop and look around us and take in what is happening in our lives.
Are you happy? Are you sad? Are you honoring yourself? Are you being true to yourself? Are you following your heart?
Synchronicity, obstructions, detours are all nudges from your Soul to make you STOP! and LISTEN! LOOK! FEEL! and BE!
Release all, to allow in the NEW!
Move aside to let the sun shine though!
Notice the love in all,

There is much 'movement' both in our external world and internal worlds. Is what we feel inside creating the outside? Or is what we see outside creating the inside?
The quote by Talmud puts it as follows:
'We do not see things as they are, we see them as we are.' Talmud
So what do we do?
Do we process our 'stuff' again going to therapy to find what happened way back then?
We can, but there is another way. Just STOP! BREATH! and look around you.
Is this the reality you wish for?
Is this where you want to be?
Does this express what your heart desires?
If it is then do more of the same. If it is not, do something about it.
You are being supported all the time whilst you make adjustments. You are been guided to make changes.
Feelings of dread, unhappiness, emptiness are all nudges from your Soul to move. To move in the direction your Soul wants to go.
'But I'm confused!', You say.
Yes, it is confusing and with what is happening inside you is also happening on a bigger scale for the planet.
So, even though you see what YOU are - All is ONE!
In times of 'movement' and confusion, sometimes, it is best to stand still. Use the time to tweak your desires, your intentions. Use the time to get to know your heart.
In times of chaos around you and inside of you, the 'movement' moves blocked feelings and thoughts.
In confusion, you need time to re-evaluate!
Sometimes it is best to do NOTHING!
Be patient, re-centre, anchor into the Earth and wait for the confusion to pass.
