Wild flowers,
Low scented notes,
Ocean breeze.
Love is your power.
Live it with ease.

A Compassionate Heart Breathes

Compassionate heart
First published in Sibyl Magazine August 2019

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. These are the words I say often. I love to hold my hands gently over my heart centre as I breathe deeply into my heart, feeling the gratitude with such warmth and comfort. How do you find comfort in your life? How do you connect to the gratitude within each breath, for breath is life, and is certainly something to be grateful?

Many times, over the years, I’ve experienced miraculous events. There have been times when I did not doubt that an earth angel visited to guide me, hold me, and in some cases, save my life. Everyday miracles abound, but do you notice them? Do you stop at that moment and acknowledge the gift? Or, do you shake your head and disregard that precious moment, that opportunity that could change the direction of your life.

We, as humans, have the gift of free-will. God, our creator, gave us this gift so that we can choose our path, our direction. What choices have you made that you either regret, judge, blame or shame? Do you carry that burden with you in the here and now? Does it weigh heavily on your heart, and does your mind consistently return to the past to only engage in further suffering?

I’m here to say, “Beautiful souls, please DO NOT carry this lower vibration for life is a series of experiences to learn and grow.” Breathe out… let it fall away and now breathe in for at this moment, free-will offers you an opportunity to make new and conscious choices. Choices made from the experience learnt, and the wisdom gained. There’s a saying; if you do what you’ve always done, you will get what you’ve always got. I say, change something small, and the outcome will surely differ.

YOU have the power to choose! Do not ever believe you are powerless, for powerless you will become.

Smiling, I can be so philosophical at times, and yet my heart bleeds when I see others suffer, and when I feel the suffering of the collective consciousness. Yes, I have also experienced many losses and had challenging times. I too have perceived I’ve made wrong choices, but I’m here to share that I’ve ALWAYS been guided back onto my path, and so are you if you only paused for a moment to see.

I’m learning just like you to TRUST in my journey and set myself free from my burdens. So that I may experience the simplicity that LOVE affords us when we move throughout our life being compassionate, kind and loving to ourselves. There’s a ripple effect when we do, and others will gain from our higher vibration, wisdom and actions.

The universe is an awesome wonder, and we are all so connected much more than we realise. Raise your vibration, and learn from your experience for your soul does not want you to suffer. Breathe in the gift of gratitude, and feel the peace and comfort.

Love you ❤

Until next time, breathe easy, love more and laugh often.

Returning Home

And she said goodbye as she walked away with a smile.
No longer chained to her past
No longer carrying her pain
She had returned home to the soft comfort of her heart

Until next time, with love and blessings,

There’s A Ripple Effect

First Published in Sibyl Magazine June 2019

Something is inviting when I walk into my local café. Something happens to inspire my writing. Hard to believe amongst all of the chatter, coffee machine noise, clanging of plates and cutlery, children screaming, and then, oh then, the aroma that filters into my nostrils as the scent of delicious food is being cooked in the kitchen. Laughing, bliss.

Are you one of those people that love to observe others? Does it amuse you when a child screams loudly, and you see someone look over disapprovingly? Or are you that person? At that moment, I make no judgement, just observe, and continue to write, but I do so love to people watch. It’s as if each movement, sound, and look become apart of my story. How often do we find that in our life? How often do we speak someone else’s words or find ourselves entwined in another’s feelings? For many of us, if we are true to ourselves, and take a moment to witness ourselves, I’d say often. I know a bold statement!

We are influenced by our environment far more than we consciously realise. We are also affected by our environment more often than we’d like to admit. Sometimes, the experience can inspire and enlighten us, where other times, not so. Do you realise we have the power to affect change with how we are, what we say and do, and who we are? We are incredible human beings, and we have a responsibility not only to ourselves but also the impact we make upon this earth and those we share the air with. Phew… that sounds so heavy, and I know it may feel a little overwhelming, yet it could be as light and bright as you choose it to be, or as heavy as you want.

The magic begins in the heart – every seed of inspiration magically grows as you breathe life into it. When we are in alignment with our heart, our path opens unobstructed, and the universe breathes life into our dreams. What if your dreams could inspire many others? What if your smile directed to a stranger gave them hope? What if recycling your waste inspired change in another just by observing you? Wow, how exciting…

We are human, and all have bad moments, days and hardships, and I’m not saying ignore those. I am venturing to share that in those moments we take responsibility for ourselves and ensure that we set loving boundaries to nurture, love and be compassionate to ourselves, and be mindful not to project our pain and discomfort on others. Let us as a collective take responsibility for how we can influence our environment by our actions and our energy. Your actions always affect others. You are most definitely not responsible for another and how they feel, but you are responsible for how you act.

Be the observer and witness yourself, you have the ability and awareness to affect change. Go for it!

Until next time,

A Simple Path

First published in Sibyl Magazine May 2019

There’s a purpose to all that we do whether that be consciously or unconsciously.

How many times have we driven the same route to work and found ourselves entering the carpark not remembering the journey along the way? In fact, we do that often with simple tasks in our lives that have become habitual.

Of late, I’ve noticed I’m more aware of what I’m doing or saying at that moment. What had changed for me? All I can say is that it was a choice, a conscious one. I desired to breathe in the gift of life and allow it to support, encourage and guide me. I no longer wished to go through my day unconsciously without experiencing the delight, meaning and purpose by being present in my life.

Choosing to be present gifted me the opportunity to process and gain understanding and wisdom in the here and now.

It stopped the unhealthy mind chatter and soaking up of energy that stilted my path by ignoring my feelings, and body, that spoke gently to inspire action for self-love and self-care. Through this understanding, I’ve found life much simpler, and remarkably I’ve embraced my voice and speak it with more clarity and strength. I just love that! In fact,

I’m enjoying life with so much gratitude that my heart sings more often than weeping.

We each have a story in our lives, one that seems to underline or undermine us. It’s associated with the past, and often we don’t even realise we’re re-enacting it daily in our actions, and how we vocalise and interact with ourselves and others, similar to driving our car unconsciously. When we begin to listen to and understand our story, we can choose to make a concerted effort to change, heal, release and move it to where it belongs, in the past.

Listen intently to your words whether they are verbalised out loud, in your head or written down. This awareness will have you as your own counsel and guide your way. Take notice, breathe deeply, ingest each moment as if it were your last. Slow down your thoughts and body so you may feel into each and every event in your life.

It’s so easy to hear and see others but not always ourselves.

I’ve come to appreciate the more grounded I am, the more aware I am at seeing clearly my actions and witnessing my emotion and communication.

Life is a playground of learning, and we complicate it so much by not being present in our lives. The undercurrent, unconscious beliefs and behaviours don’t always serve us.

We, yes, we, have the power to embrace the present, open our awareness and relax into the simplicity it offers.

Don’t let your unconscious behaviours rule your present happiness for you are a child of light gifted with free-will to empower choice in your life.

Choose presence in your life and know the gift of love will surely guide your actions.

Love you, until next time
