Working Back from the Results

Today started off full of promise where I jumped out of bed with my mind buzzing with ideas. I quickly wrote them all down in my journal and started to put together my thoughts for my forthcoming talks on 7th and 8th June.

As I was rehearsing my talk I found myself distracted by internal and external events, e.g: cat meowing for food; my tummy rumbling; partner coming in and out of the kitchen. I felt my resolve quickly transforming into frustration. So, I decided to take my work to the library. As I parked near the library I changed my mind as I didn't fancy walking through the rain to sit in a stuffy room with other computer users whilst I tried to create.

This pattern continued through lunch time until I decided to practice what I was trying to share. I meditated with my crystals and let them help me release my internal blocks to creating, which were evidently being symbolically shown to me in my external world.

Did this stop the distractions? No, of course not: I watched 'Loose Women' (a women's chat show) and had something else to eat, read my emails, went on face book and then sat down to write this post. As I was in my flow I got a call from my loving other half to help him with something...

So, what is this all about?

Sometimes, it is not enough to have that brilliant idea; the best tools and techniques to move on; the time or space. It is about knowing, what it is you want to achieve. You need to have the result in the fore of your mind and work back ward.

This is sometimes harder for creative people who need to be in the moment; to get the inspiration; to go with the feeling. I have all that, what I need at the moment is structure to keep me focused.

I continued with my ‘running around’ for another two hours where I picked up my son from work, went food shopping and booked a client in for crystal therapy. In amongst all this I also promised my event organizer that I would have my bio ready within the hour (I never said which hour J )

Food is in the oven I am back on the lap top and finishing off this post. My head is clearer even if my body is more tired. There are still hours left in this day where I can finish what I started at 7 am this morning.

Message from my angels (Have just picked myself an angel card as I write)

‘I am the Angel of Marriage and I am assisting you right now!!’

In other words, I need to find some time for my other half…today!!!!

Dear Diary

I have written in you for years
You have helped me with my fears
I have poured all I have inside
Things that I have learnt to hide.

You have helped me through
Confusion, through pain and love
I have found in your pages
All that I am.

My mind needs your help
To straighten out the thoughts
To unravel the tangled emotions
That are caught in its claws.

I trust you to listen to allow
Me the time
For in your world there is 
No time-

Just space and patience
A place where I can
Lay the past to rest
Bearing all of it 
Not just the best.

Your lines give me structure
To create a new path
You are open and welcoming
Like a loving old Aunt

You lay there waiting for me
Never pushing or pleading
Ready for me whenever
My heart is bleeding or needing
A release.

Thank you dear Dairy
Thank you for your peace

Write Therapy

'Set yourself a challenge; decide to really listen to how people talk; whether,
they are problem talkers or solution talkers. You will be amazed at what you
will hear. The more you become attuned to people’s ‘talk’ the easier it will be
to work on your own ‘talk’... ' Write Therapy Chapter 2 Christina Christou

I have written a book compiled of all the tools I have learned through the years. Write Therapy - using the power of words to heal the past and create the life you want, is a self-help book using journaling and the law of attraction.

The book is being promoted by a new publishing concept where the reader helps decide if the Author receives a publishing contract. I need 250 pre-orders for the book to be published.

Take a visit to the website Britains Next Best Seller and help promote other authors too.

This Valentine's be in-love with life!

February 14th is, as everyone is aware, Saint Valentine’s Day. Whether we want to remember this day or not, the shops won’t allow us to forget; Cards, cuddly toys, mugs, jewellery and cheeky intimate presents adorn the shelves of every money making outlet.

How much do you spend on a Valentine’s gift? Is love measured by the monetary amount? It would be nice to think that a simple ‘I love you’ would be enough to show your beloved that you love them. But that is not generally the case, especially when we have Saint Valentine peeking at us from every angle.

Who is this guy who has most of the world pulling at his heart strings? A popular account is that Saint Valentine was a holy priest from Rome. It states that he was imprisoned for helping the Christians who were being persecuted. According to legend, during his imprisonment, he healed the daughter of his jailer. Apparently, before his execution he wrote her a letter signed "Your Valentine" as a farewell.

It was first associated with romantic love in the Middle ages, where there was a tradition of courtly love. In 18th-century England, it evolved into an occasion when lovers expressed their love for each other by giving flowers; candy and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines").

Red hearts, doves and figures of cupid are Valentine's Day symbols that are used today. Also, a dozen red roses are the symbol of romance, along with a candlelit dinner under the moonlight, washed down with a glass of bubbly; red rose petals scattered on the carpet leading to the bath tub filled with sweet smelling bubbles…

All this for love- romantic love!

But what if you do not have a Valentine? Does this mean you cannot enjoy the novelty and the energy of Valentine’s Day and love? Who is to say that you cannot send yourself a card or gift; have a delicious meal and a glass of champagne or a beauty/healing treatment?

Saint Valentine’s Day is just one day where lovers can express their love. Love is not only for one day though. Love is always, everywhere and for everyone, whether in a relationship or not.

Love yourself enough to know that you are not unlovable if you don’t have a Valentine. Love yourself enough to know you do not need someone else to make you whole – you are already whole. 

So, this Valentine’s, whatever your romantic status, be in-love with life and life will be in-love with you. This is the best way to attract another person who is also happy with being in-love.

Following are some spiritual ways to invoke love and also keep love alive:
v     Crystals- love can be invoked with having a piece of Rose Quartz in your bedroom.
v     Angels – having figures or pictures of cupid the classic symbol of love.
v     Archangels- invoke Jophiel the Archangel of beauty which can help beautify your thoughts and surroundings.
v     Affirmations –  saying positive phrases in the present attracts our desires, ‘I welcome love into my life’
v     Candles – lighting a red or pink candle and chanting a ritual to attract love.
v     Flowers/essential oils – the sweet scent of flowers especially roses can invoke the energy of love.

v     Figurines – of couples in loving embrace or heart shaped ornaments help your focus on romance.

New Moon, New Year 2014

2014 is a special time!

There will be clarity and unity for all. Unfortunately, there will be some who will not feel this.
No amount of fighting, manipulating, saving or guiding will help them. Clarity will be available for all but many will not be ready to see what it shows up. Some will not be able to face the truth preferring to stay in darkness and illusion. Each person must be allowed to make their own choices at this time. The ones who want to live in the light of truth will seek others who are living it also, or who are able to assist them. The ones who continue to see strife, conflict and revenge will feel more stress, anxiety and despair.  There will be more compassion and love available for all, hearts will be opening, people will seek to unite rather than separate. There will be more opportunities for building up communities, sharing and caring.

Lots of love and joy
