Your Assistance, Please!

0*AbwXyeoH4EFWez2VI’ve spent the last four days in a writing frenzy. I can’t really think about anything else at the moment. A few weeks ago I had an idea for a book I was going to write but I didn’t know where I was going with it. I kind of stopped writing for a while. I would clean or do anything rather than write. Then I was texting a friend that I hadn’t spoken to in a while on a completely unrelated matter and out of the blue, she asked if I was writing a book! I told her that I started to write one and then stopped and she gave me a message that she channeled that I should continue to write and for inspiration, I should spend time outdoors with no shoes or socks on to ground myself in mother nature. So I did just that! I sat outside in my garden to write what I had started and to meditate, and go for walks in the woods – I love my walks in the woods with the bluebells and my favorite meditation tree. It’s literally a tree whose trunk has naturally grown into a chair shape with the boughs surrounding me on all sides. Now for weeks, I had been praying that I would get a sign if I was on the right path, and a really obvious nudge if there was some service work or life purpose that I was supposed to do but that I was avoiding. Do you ever just get that niggling feeling that you are supposed to be doing something? Well – I soon got my answer, didn’t I? Once I knew I was supposed to be writing a book I added to my prayer which is usually:

“How may I serve?” and “Thank you for this, thank you for that” with a good dose of affirmation type prayers too.

I changed it to:

“What do people need to read? What shall I write that will help the most people?”

Slowly but surely the book idea took form. I could literally feel manifesting in my mind out of thin air.

I am actually trying to say two things today:

1 – The power of prayer is very real. My entire life has been an experiment in the power of prayer. My prayers have changed form over the years and I’ve noticed my prayers becoming more powerful and as I got to know myself more authentically and got wise to the fact that you need to leave space for the Creator to work in his own way.

“This Lord, or something better that I couldn’t even have dreamed of.”

A Course In Miracles states that there is no order in the difficulty of miracles. Jesus said that if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, move, and it will obey. If we are part of the Divine, and individual spark of the Divine, then we can perform miracles too. We just need to remember who we are and align with that power. To become one with it.

2 – I need your help! I’m working on a book about human experiences during the Coronavirus pandemic. I would love to hear your stories, please. In particular, I am interested in:
-Your experiences on the run-up to the start of lockdown. What were you doing – what were your thoughts and emotions.
-What Random Acts of Kindness did you experience during this trying time?
-I would love to read about the experiences of our frontline workers and what practises they developed in order to stay mentally healthy and get through this time or what would have helped you on a personal level.
-Responses from the universe as a result of meditation and/or prayer.
– What realizations have you had through this experience? How has it changed your perspective on life and your world view? Has it changed?
If you have a story you would like to share feel free to go to my CONTACT ME page and email your stories to me by June 30th and let me know also if you would like it to be named. I would also need written consent to publish it.


Wishing you love, light, and many blessings, 

Stay safe,

The Point Of Power

 

Personal power

I’m writing this blog post after having been awake since the wee hours of the morning. I have my incense lit and a hot black coffee on my nightstand. In my favorite sheets on my bed with the morning light streaming through the window. It’s about week 6 of lockdown for everyone. Week 7 for me as I got symptoms a week before the lockdown was instigated and had to self isolate. I believe it was just a cough but those are the rules. It’s been a rather strange experience for me. As I’m sure it has for everyone else. There have been several sides to me. The hopeful side. The motivated side. The apathetic side. The fearful side. I’ve visited every one of these states.

It is a very sad and uncertain time for all of us – so many deaths. So much isolation.So much financial worry. And then there’s the thought of “what if life is never the same again? What new normal are we heading towards?”

Now I love to have time to myself – it’s one of my most powerful ways to regenerate my energy. I have really enjoyed the freedom of using my time the way I like. There seems to be a recurring theme on social media and I’ve noticed it in my personal life too. A dichotomy between two expectations. A – this is an amazing opportunity for those who are well to use the newfound time to create the lifestyle that they always dreamed of. To make changes. To build something new. B – we are going through a traumatic experience and shouldn’t put pressure on ourselves. We need to give ourselves permission to feel unmotivated and do nothing if we need to.

Might I suggest that we can do both? Perhaps self-care is about knowing ourselves enough to listen to what we need and respond from there? It doesn’t have to be an either/or situation. A day of Netflix bingeing can be very healthy for a person who feels unsure and needs to process their feelings. Sometimes the healing, the inspiration, and the plan happen in the background while getting lost in the stories and drama of a really good movie or series. Other days, one might feel inspired to get lost in some creative past time – like painting or knitting. Or in a computer game. Those who know me well know that I am a huge fan of the sims!

What I am saying is that our service to humanity, the fulfillment of our life purpose, and the knowing that we have not come to the end of our lives with our music unplayed, comes from strengthening the relationship with ourselves. With our very own soul.

This means choosing how you spend your time and ensuring that’s authentically what you want to do at the moment. What makes you come alive? What activity gets you in a state where you are totally engrossed and time flies by without you realizing? What makes your soul sing? This may change from moment to moment. One hour it may be cleaning out a draw or organizing your home. The next it may be getting lost in a good book or going for a walk in nature. When you fill your own cup, you have the resources to serve humanity by leading the way to authenticity and shining your light brightly.

Basically, you do you, boo!

And know this – life may never be the same. We are all missing our families and people are suffering and the big scary and the fear feel very real and there probably is a genuine risk. Life is a cycle and suffering comes and goes. Wars happen, famine, natural disasters. This is not always in our control. But things always change. If they can change for the worse, they will certainly change for the better.

What is in our control? The way we live our lives and the difference we make in our own sphere of influence. My source of strength? The Divine Creator. The ultimate energy source that is benevolent and awaits your invitation to guide you in your highest good. How do you develop your relationship with yourself? Follow through with your promises to yourself. Pray. Meditate. Dance. Walk. Listen. Take action.

“The most important thing is to hold on, hold out, for your creative life, for your solitude, for your time to be and do, for your very life, hold on, for the promise from the wild nature is this: After winter, Spring always comes!”

Women Who Run With Wolves, Clarissa Pinkola Estes.

Stay safe.

Love and blessings to you all,
