In the Bible it says, "And all things whatsoever that ye shall ask for in prayer, believing, ye shall receive." Real faith isn't asking repeatedly for the same thing over and over. God heard you the first time.  Most times we keep asking, we don't notice that our prayers have already been answered, we don't have any belief, or we are just not allowing the space to receive them. 

Every prayer is answered, just not always in ways we are expecting.

"Jealousy is simply and clearly the fear that you do not have value.  Jealousy scans for evidence to prove the point - that others will be preferred and rewarded more than you.  There is only one alternative - self-value.  If you cannot love yourself, you will not believe that you are loved.  You will always think it's a mistake or luck.  Take your eyes off others and turn the scanner within.  Find the seeds of your jealousy, clear the old voices and experiences.  Put all the energy into building your personal and emotional security.  Then you will be the one others envy, and you can remember the pain and reach out to them."  ~Jennifer James

"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen." ~ Elizabeth Kubler-Ross

"Living from our perceived wounds transforms us into warriors and shuts down our hearts. If we were meant to live that way, we would be born wearing a suit of armour rather than naked, vulnerable and unconditionally loving."

"Life appears random on the surface, but at a deeper level it is completely organised." ~Deepak Chopra 


"When you try to control everything with your mind, you miss the miracles that are all around you. When you choose to live from your heart instead of your head, you relax, let go, and find joy in the moment; feeling grateful for the blessings of life that your mind was just too busy to notice."

It's Our Chemistry...


mind-body-connection-250x166
"Yes, we’re all chemists. If you had to think of someone who causes you stress then you’d produce stress chemistry in your brain. You’d also elevate levels of cortisol and adrenalin in your bloodstream, and cause increased blood to flow to your major muscles. If you think in this way consistently, then there’s a fair chance that you could produce higher levels of free radicals and chemicals of inflammation in your bloodstream too.
Or you could think of someone you love or feel affection towards. This time, you’ll produce love chemistry in your brain, which will involve dopamine, serotonin, the brain’s natural versions of morphine and heroin, known as endogenous opioids, and the love hormone, oxytocin.
Oxytocin will also be produced around the body and will quickly dilate your arteries and lower your blood pressure. It’s called a ‘cardioprotective’ hormone – it protects the heart. It might even initiate labor if you’re heavily pregnant. With consistent thinking in this way, the elevated oxytocin levels will neutralise free radicals and inflammation in your blood vessels. Not bad at all, I think, for something you’re doing with your mind! Yes, we’re quite the chemists." ~ by David R. Hamilton PhD ~So How DOES Your Mind Affect Your Body (27 March 2013)

Photo: "Sometimes our complicated lives make us forget that we’re connected to Universal energy and that we have these natural abilities. We stop listening to ourselves and start to give our power away to external forces such as bosses, teachers, and friends. Blocking our feelings also breaks down our awareness of our own magnificence because emotions are a doorway into the soul. But we’re complex beings, and we try to control how we feel.

When we live completely from the mind over a period of time, we lose touch with the infinite self, and then we begin to feel lost. This happens when we’re in doing mode all the time, rather than being. The latter means living from the soul and is a state of allowing. It means letting ourselves be who and what we are without judgment. Being doesn’t mean that we don’t do anything. It’s just that our actions stem from following our emotions and feelings while staying present in the moment. Doing, on the other hand, is future focused, with the mind creating a series of tasks that take us from here to there in order to achieve a particular outcome, regardless of our current emotional state.

When we feel off track, we think there’s something wrong with us—something we have to do or get in order to right ourselves—so we go searching outside for answers. We look to others in the hope that they’ll fix us. We may feel better for a little while, but it’s usually short-lived, and we eventually end up feeling worse. However, when we really start to tune in to who life intended us to be, we connect with the soul of our magnificence. We feel clarity when we allow this connection and take our power back, and our lives start to work.

When we come from this place of being who we are, we can choose to learn from external gurus, teachers, books, or spiritual philosophies. We become aware of our own inner magnificence and truth, instead of believing that others have power that we don’t. In fact, when we realize our magnificence and live in our true nature of love, we’ll synchronistically attract the right teacher, book, or spiritual philosophy at the right time!

UNFORTUNATELY, BEING UNAWARE OF OUR OWN magnificence can have effects that seem far greater than simply feeling lost, although it’s all of the same essence. During my NDE, it felt to me that all judgment, hatred, jealousy, and fear stem from people not realizing their true greatness. Lacking awareness of our perfection keeps us feeling small and insignificant, and this goes against the natural flow of life-force energy—that which we really are. We go against ourselves.

The way I see it, if we were encouraged to express who we truly are, we’d all be very loving beings, each bringing our uniqueness to the world. Problems and strife come as a result of our not knowing who we are and not being able to show our inner beauty. We’ve created so much judgment about what’s “perfect,” which leads to doubt and competitiveness. Since we feel as though we’re not good enough, we go around acting out. However, if each of us became aware of our magnificence and felt good about ourselves, it seems to me the only thing we’d have to share is our unique nature, expressed outwardly in a loving manner that reflects our self-care."

It's As Simple As Breathing


Photo

"...Do you worry about where the next breath of air will come from? Of course not. This is how effortless your reality can be. Just as you do not think about whether you will remember to take the next breath or that there will be air for you to breathe, so you can release the worry about whether all of your needs will be met when you acknowledge how the Creator provides you with what you need, in unlimited abundance, as you remove your focus from worry, doubt and fear to acceptance that there is always enough. And as you take your next breath remember that it is being provided for you in abundance by a Creator who loves you beyond measure. Breathe with intention, fully and completely, know that the love of the Creator is in each breath you take and that just as the air you breathe is provided effortlessly, so is every other need met for you when you remember that your life is a spiritual journey occurring in a material plane where everything you need is available to you." ~ Channelled Message from Archangel Uriel ~ Jennifer Hoffman

As I walked Olly through our local park today, the after effects of Mother Nature's alarm clock going off, so perfectly attuned with the Vernal (Spring) Equinox were palpable. The 'bird song knob' had been cranked up to full joyous volume with every natural element bursting with the beginning of this new primaveral cycle of fertility and creation. There was even a brief, but very welcome sighting of our sun.

Happy Spring!

When we are in pain, we will stay in that pain until we can no longer bear it. "The cup of suffering is not the same size for everyone." ~ Paulo Coelho


Tuesday, 19 March 2013



On Wednesday, the Vernal Equinox, we will be in perfect balance between light and dark. Let us pray loving attention to the fragile sprouts of inner beauty which have survived the long dark of hibernation, despite all odds, to push up through the soil into the light. Let us honour the faith it has taken to believe in the invisible, upper world, where soon we will blossom into sprawling gardens overflowing with fruit. Let us hold our painful hearts with gentle hands today. Let us express our gratitude to the light that can only be found in the dark. Let us ask our vulnerability to stand at our side and shine radiantly with knowing that we are unfolding right on time. -Dreamwork with Toko-pa

A friend will see us at our worst, as well as our best. A friend will not close his or her heart when we have made a mistake (although in reality mistakes don't really exist and are simply Divine lessons). A friend will not condemn us, but will compassionately support our return to a state of grace. ~ A Course in Miracles

Goldfinch Totem



I've seen so many of these dainty 'sylph-like' birds within this past week, as the Spring Equinox approaches.

They symbolise: an awakening to nature spirits (fairies, elves, pixies etc.), help with endurance in transition of physical to spiritual, in understanding the power of you voice and your own song. Goldfinches also teach the value and importance of changes, healthy family resolutions along with balance and harmony in dealing with people. The Goldfinch will teach you to awaken to once hidden choices.

What a beautiful gift and reminder from the Universe - thank you.

Are you stepping with delight,
welcoming what is ~
knowing that you are Divinely watched over,
infinitely loved ~
and absolutely necessary ?
((((♥))))

What If...




Photo

What if, everyone decided on this day, to adopt this:
 
"I Am embracing my life as it is. Nothing is missing. I Am deeply grateful for what is, and wide open to what shall be. There is a package, already in the Divine elevator, just waiting to be delivered to me the moment I dissolve the 'something is missing piece,' making space inside of me for more Light (Wisdom and Truth) to come through me, and more God to come through me, with a special delivery!
 
I Am calling forth all energies created in times gone by, and in present time, and command them to remain outside the boundaries of my new life on Earth. You shall not be entertained and longer.
 
I Am making my departure on this day from all erroneous beliefs that something is missing in order to stand inside my complete life, imperfect as it may seem right now; knowing the moment I deeply embrace it as so, grace will flood in.
 
And so it is!

Every situation is ultimately a lesson in forgiveness.  Forgiveness is our decision to see the love that is real in all of us, despite whatever appearances to the contrary there are.  Fear melts away when we refuse to affirm its ultimate reality.  When we see beyond fear, it dissolves.  I no longer blame you because I don't believe the part of you that acted is who you really are.  I relate instead to your innocence, to the angel within you, which remains, no matter what you do.  That is the power of forgiveness:  to call forth a higher reality by acknowledging a higher reality.

~Marianne Williamson
