Old Irish Blessing

Deep peace of the running wave to you; Deep peace of the flowing air to you;

Deep peace of the quiet Earth to you; Deep peace of the shining stars to you.

And the only miracle that is possible is to enter this garden of Eden again, to become childlike, to allow nature its flow. Don't block it, don't push it, just flow with it. You are nature, you are Tao, you are part of the continuous mystery that is happening.

Three days into my New Year and already I feel the magic that is The Year of White Lunar Wizard, I know that through heart-knowing, I am in natural alignment with divine will, as was written in the Mayan Oracle. I feel the turning of events, the promise of a new way of being, a releasing and renewing in all aspects of my body, mind and spirit. As today is the second day of the Blue Western Eagle Season of Vision I feel a quickening within me, a promise of all that is to occur to me this year. I feel the mystery of the Universe surrounding me and blessing me with its power, knowing and beauty, I am fully aware of my divinity and sovereignty, I know that I am all that I project through the thoughts, words and deeds. I feel that I have completely returned to my self. Every day is sacred, and with each new day that dawns we as individuals have the capacity to create our lives in complete peace, love and harmony, we may bestow upon ourselves all that we truly desire by simply giving intent and allowing the Universe to manifest our desires. By staying in your heart centre and allowing the ego-mind to disolve you will find a balance and complete harmony returning to your life, you will find that you control every aspect of your life, and that by dedication to the Light and to your Self you will create the wondorous life that you came here to exprience.


"Fearlessness" is not a reduction of fears, but rather the capacity to go beyond fear. "Going beyond feat begins when we examine our fear.....In the Shambhala tradition, discovering fearlessness comes from working with the softness of the human heart." Chogyam Trungpa, Rinpoche

Water is a wonderful element, and perhaps my favourite.
I love to be in water, swimming, bathing, showering or even just paddling, if I am near it I want to be in it. I love to laze in a hot bubble bath, feeling all the tension and fatigue releasing from my body. I adore swimming as a way to unwind, exercise or just float, drifting along allowing the water to gently guide me. I savour the sensation of my morning shower, the hot water pouring over my head, invigorating my body, cleansing it ready to begin a new day. I love to walk along the oceans edge, rolling my jeans up, taking my shoes off and walking in the cool salty water, feeling it purifying my soul. I am fascinated also by the fury of a stormy sea, I can sit for hours and watch the waves crashing against the shore, I love to feel the salty spray upon my face. To stare into the crystal clear rock pools and watch the corals softly swaying in the current. To sit by a river as it meanders past, watching a leaf as it floats past, not sound it makes as it dances across upon the water, drifting to the sea. To hear the rain pounding upon the roof, watching the raindrops trickling down the window, silently it mesmerises me completely. Walking in the rain, feeling it soothing me, cleansing me, becoming part of me.
For me water is so therapeutic in whatever form it comes in, I feel at peace and at One with it when I am in or around it, and whenever I require a lift, heading for water is the best therapy for me.

Why does the human race feel that it has to compete with everyone in every area of life? Why can people not play sport just because they enjoy it? Why can people not learn simply for the knowledge that they will be given? Why can people not enjoy their employment because they enjoy what it is they do? Why do women feel that they have to be thinner, younger, trendier than there friends and peers? Why is it you are looked down upon by the 'in crowd' if you do not appear to money? Who made money GOD anyway? Why can't more people see the beauty in the magnificence of themselves for who they are and what they give to this world from simply being in it? Why do they feel that they have to be 'someone' to make a difference in this world? Why can't they see that we are all equal and perfect in every way, no matter what path we wish to walk in life, what colour our skin may be, what language we speak, we are all One.

I have been returning to the place in me where the Universe resides more and more of late, it appears that I am unable to get enough of the stillness and the silence that I exprience when I am at one with the Universe deep in the stillness of my meditations. I am drifting along totally trusting the Universe and my own power to manifest my own reality. With this intrinsic trust that I have for my self and the Universe I know that my journey here is about to enter into a new and exciting phase.

The lure of the blank canvas is intoxicating with its promise, I feel with the dawning of each new day the magic drawing nearer, my dream becoming a reality, the possibilities are as endless as my imagination.

Be Kind To Yourself

It is vitally important for your soul that you make time for you. You make time for everything else that you want to do, yet for complete inner balance and harmony you time is vital. Simple things will give you the most benefit; Go for a long walk. Indulge in a long luxurious bath. Meditate. Exercise Live for the moment. Loosen up. Count your blessings. Just let go. Daydream. Just let go and BE, by sitting still and going within, you will start to discover the real you. When you live entirely in the Ego Mind you will never achieve balance and harmony within your body, mind or life, you can question and analyse your life and the lives of those around you all you wish, however, you will not attain peace or answers until you start to still your mind, spend time with your SELF, being in the heart. You will also remain searching for peace if you continue to live in the past, compare your self to others and resent others for things that they do or say, stay in your own head and within your own heart. Although we share our journey here with others we are not responsible for their life choices in any way, shape or form. If your life is in dis-harmony in any area then you require quality me time to rectify the situation, until you stop and do for you, nothing in your life will change. No one else can give you peace, health or love.

It may seem like a monumental step to take, and perhaps your excuse maybe that you can not relax, you can not still your mind, well as long a you say that it will be so, it is up to you and only you, if you desire peace and fulfillment in ALL areas of your life, stillness and time for you is the only way ahead.

A laugh is the shortest distance between two friends.

A Song From the Pleiades

I am, I am, I am, I am LOVE.


I am god of the Universe.

I sing this little song whenever my ego mind wishes me to think of things that are not of a positive nature, it changes the energy instantly, and always makes me smile, after all, we are ALL gods of the Universe, every single one of us.

The teachings that come from the Pleiades are full of wisdom, love and inspiration and are intended for all of humanity, they are here to assist all of us in remembering the wondrous and loving beings we truly are, to remind us of our sovereignty.

I know that in my own journey their messages have provided me with hope and confirmation that I was on the right path, that there is far more to this world than what the average human sees, and more to the 'average ' human too, bless their hearts for all they do and give to Mother Earth and to all of humanity in these chaotic times we are currently experiencing.

This World is Bliss

What a divine sunrise it was this morning, it took me all my time to stay focused on the road, I was simply awe struck at the beauty that was before my eyes, the colours of the clouds as the sun was beginning to rise. It made me think, how many people are looking at this, REALLY looking as they drive themselves to work. So many humans are still sleepwalking through their lives, they are not aware of the beauty and magic that surrounds them everyday in so many unique and wonderful ways. I am thankful that I awoke from this slumber many, many years ago, I now take the time to watch the sunrise, birds fly, snails crawl, waves break, leaves fall, clouds drift, rain fall ............................................. the list is endless to the beauty I see around me each and everyday.

A Note from The Universe

Performing miracles and magic, has nothing to do with enlightenment and EVERYTHING to with expectation!

When my peace-heart dreams, my bliss-life sings.
Sri Chinmoy
I am not quite certain why most people would rather believe that this life is hard, challenging, unfair, depressing, limiting.......................................... Why is it that as a rule people like to stay stuck in the challenges that they create for themselves? Why is it that they look at someone who apparently has it easier than they do and think that they are lucky? We all write our own stories, we attract what we focus upon and think about, we are always manifesting, even if we don't believe that we are, you think it, you get it, simple as that.

When Blossom is a Hungry Tum

When the rumble of her hungry tum calls her in the middle of the night Blossom has come up with a number of ways to wake her sleeping humans.

If on the bed she will;

Tap me on the shoulder with her paw.

Walk around my pillow.

Gently head butt my forehead, followed by cheek licking.

Tap my head gently with claws extended ever so slightly.

If she is already on the floor (she is unable to jump back up) she will;

Shout (meow) at the side of the bed.

Claw the side of the bed and then run underneath so I can't grab her.

Hit the wrought iron handles on the bedside tables with her paws so that they rattle very loudly.

She will get her point across no matter what, when Madame B has a hungry tum no one will sleep until someone feeds her, and often when we do get up we find her midnight feast is still in her bowl, untouched I might add, she will then happily eat it not giving a moments thought to having woken us up!

Try not to understand music with your mind, do not even try to feel it with your heart.

Simply enjoy the spontaneity and the the soul of the music to lift your heart to the sky.

Give Me Strength

Last night we went out for a meal to celebrate a special occasion, around two hours before we were due at the restaurant I received a phone call to ask what it was the chef could cook 'the vegan'. The vegan, it makes it sound like I am some sort of leper! I suggested a pasta dish with a tomato base, oh we can't do that as all our pasta is egg pasta came the reply, okay, have you got rice? Yes. Okay, what about a savory rice dish, vegetable chilli, stuffed peppers or roasted mediterranean vegetables????? Who is the chef here? I appeared to fluster the poor woman even more, too many ideas, can you eat dairy? No, a vegan does not eat any form of animal bi-product, okay she said so you don't want any eggs or dairy? Yes that is right I answer. To which she said and no meat? Give me strength! I then confused her even more when I told her that my dinner companion was a vegetarian, however she thought that was easier as at least they eat chicken and fish, do they I said. And which plant do they come from? I continued to say a TRUE vegetarian will not eat any flesh foods although they may eat eggs and/or dairy, this appeared to be somewhat of a revelation to the poor soul, bless her heart. Is it any wonder we rarely eat out? By the way the token 'vegan' dish was as about as inspiring and tasty as baked beans on toast, (which actually would have been tastier) lesson here, my food is delicious and creative so why do I put myself through this every now and then, it really is not worth the trouble, unless I know that the restaurant is a vegetarian establishment from now on I am steering clear. And it makes one wonder, what sort of training do chef's actually receive? I mean for a trained chef to have absolutely no idea what to cook for a vegetable dish is really quite unbelievable.

A Note from The Universe

Try pretending that all you now believe to be real, is not. And that all you wish to be real, is. If only for a few minutes each day.

Then, try acting like all you wish to be real already is real.

With just a word here, a sentence there, or some little demonstration.

If only in private.

Before long, you won't even remember what you used to believe was real.

I'm pretending you already do this stuff whenver you want change!

The Universe

Celestial Duality

Native Americans attentively observe the sky and have many stories to explain the origins of the Universe and the unity of the human, natural and spirit worlds.

For many tribes, the heavenly bodies of the Sun and Moon represent the dualities of creation: life and death, man and woman, good and evil.

The rising and setting of the Sun and the waxing and waning of the Moon, reflect the phases of the cycle of existence and human beings' harmony with the Cosmos.

Ancient wisdom for a modern chaotic world.

Blossom's Home Alone

Blossom is wondering what is going on, I have returned to my part-time job three days a week and that means Madame B is home alone. Bless her heart she sits there in the morning looking at me wondering why I am not snuggling up to her when dad goes to work. She gives up after awhile and cuddles up and goes to sleep, and is still in the same place when I come home four hours later. Bless her beautiful heart.

Never Alone

We are never alone on our journey here on planet earth, although I know at times it appears we are. Always present are those in spirit, guiding, supporting and loving us just the way we are.

Thank you

A few months ago I said that I would like to have more like-minded people enter my life, I gave the intent and then let it go to the Universe. Presto they are appearing, and I am once again grateful to Universe for providing me with exactly what I ask for. It has also made me realise how off centre I had become with our move to Australia, I really did create a enormous challenge for myself there, although I did not see that at the time.
Bless my little heart I am back on the right path now. When synchronicity is present in your life you KNOW you are doing it right! And synchronicity is working overtime for me at present, even down to the people I am now working with. All I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you Universe.

The experience of love arises when we surrender our seperateness into the universe.

It is a feeling of unity.

You don't love another, you are another.

Quality Time

Quality time with your special person is an very important aspect of any relationship and one that I think causes the most turmoil and overall breakdowns. By quality time I don't mean you have to go out and do things together all the time, I mean that when you and your special person are together you are both fully present not preoccupied with other issues that you may have going through your mind. In this ultra busy world we live in time to be and to relax are becoming more difficult for most people, there never seems to be enough hours in a day, weekends seem to fly by quicker and they are not as relaxing as they once where because all of a sudden there appears to be much less time and much more to do. Setting time to relax and unwind with your special person will ultimately enhance your relationship, by making this person you decided to share your life with know that they still are the one you wish to be with. Taking people for granted and accepting that they will always be there waiting for you is not something that one should actually count on. Leave your work at the office, worry about what to cook for dinner later, stay present and in the moment, give each other the attention you used to when you first met, when a single second felt like an eternity. The magic never leaves a relationship on its own, it leaves when people become either lazy or to consumed with their own importance to take notice at how their special people may be feeling. At the end of the day it boils down to treating your special people the way you yourself wish to be treated. It means taking the time to really talk to them, really look at them, to relax with them, totally, completely focused on your sacred time together.

The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy of each other's life.
Rarely do members of one family grow up under the same roof.
Richard Bach
Not sure what you would call this little angel, perhaps a Zonkey???


When synchronicity is present in your life it is an indication that you are being and not doing, you are trusting your higher power and the Universe to work in unison to create your life in harmony. This weekend has given me confirmation that this is so. I found myself presented with a choice to make a few months ago, I gave the Universe clear intent of what I desired to be the outcome and left it at that. Now out of the blue, what I asked for has appeared. Never underestimate the power of intent.

The Ego Mind

The biggest personal challenge any of us ever have to contend with is the ego mind, it will lead us down the path to failure, illness, depression and unhappiness time and time again. The only way of beating the ego mind is to put aside time everyday to be still. It is by being still that you will begin to control the mind,especially the negativity of the ego mind. I know that for many they say that they have no time to be still, they can't relax, they are unable to clear their mind, as long as they think that way so it will be. We are our thoughts, we control every day we have by what we think, yet we often do not take control in a positive way, we often allow the ego to take over and lead us down the path to dis-harmony, going over the past in our heads, and in most cases we will then end up blaming others for where we find ourselves, not really willing to take responsibility for our own thoughts and actions. Our life upon this planet was not designed to be difficult, we do that all by ourselves, and this modern world of materialism does not help our souls quest into returning to Oneness either, too many temptations. For me I find that when I feel the ego mind attempting to manipulate me I either meditate, go for a walk or do some yoga, and if all else fails or I am unable to do one of these things, I watch my breathing and consciously change the thoughts in my mind. Overcoming any obstacle we give ourselves is not impossible, it takes your inner strength and dedication to overcome the patterning that we have become prisoners of. In my own life journey I know I have overcome many challenges that at the time I thought I would never overcome, looking back I can proudly say that it has always been by following my quite inner voice that has lead me to wholeness once again. I know that it sounds too simple to be true, it is not. To regain your balance and your inner peace, health and clarity understand that only you can do that for you, no one else has that ability, they may offer advice or techniques, however only you hold the key to your own happiness and health, it is all down to way that you think. Thoughts of love, harmony, peace and happiness will only produce a life of positivity. It is like I said a few days ago, happiness has nothing to do with who you are, what you have or where you have been, it has to do with what you think.

The months and days are the travellers of eternity.

The years that come and go are also voyagers..............

I too for years past have been stirred by the sight of a solitary cloud drifting with the wind to ceaseless thoughts of roaming.

I'm Back

After months and months of feeling less than fantastic and fit, due to my little challenge (accident) I am pleased to say that I am feeling exceptionally well. I can honestly say that this week has been the first week since 8 March that I have felt at all well. I have begun to return to the person I was prior to this period of cleansing, which if I was to be brutally honest, perhaps it has been around two and a half years since I have truly been myself! I am not surprised by the intensity of the past few months, actually considering the state of my thoughts and actions prior to the accident, I thank myself lucky, it could have been a LOT worse. The time has done me good, I did not get it straight away, however that is okay, I know that I am on top of things now and understand why it all occurred, when it did and how it did. I had not realised how low I had become until I started to reclaim my power, and to wake up feeling like I do now, alive and full of life. I know it is only going to get better as my body returns to a healthier and fitter state of being. I also know that I do not have to change to 'fit' in here, I AM who I AM, and I am proud of me, I had started to change to the ways of the local people in a attempt to fit in, in reality all I did was sell myself short, I was not honouring my beliefs or my self as a person. People can either take me as I am or not at all, and the same applies to them, I am not changing to impress anyone, or to fit into a 'lifestyle' that I do not enjoy anyway. I am me, and I AM perfect just how I AM, just as you are too! It really does feel so good to be back.

It IS That Cold

Blossom intends to convince me that it REALLY is that cold, by getting herself as close to the gas fire as the comfort of the mat will allow. She won't consider sitting on the cold tiles, shame on you for thinking such a thing!
She also appears to be wondering why her basket is SO far away from her favourite friend the fire, bless her wonderful heart.

In a Word

In the past few months I have been lucid dreaming, nearly every night while I sleep.

I actually did not know that was what I was doing until I explained to a friend what I was experiencing while I slept. While I was dreaming I KNEW I was dreaming and I was observing myself and all that was happening around me, remembering my adventures when I wake up.

There is only one word I can think of to explain it, AMAZING!

Just Quickly

Have you ever had a phone conversation with someone who you have never met, yet when you speak you instantly find a connection? Mmmmm I have too, today!

It's times like this that the Universe really does prove it's magic to me.

Not that I required any convincing!!

Life is All About

Life is all about trusting enough in yourself to allow your dreams to manifest into reality. I gave intent for more 'like-minded' people to be sent my way, and since I gave that intent I have had two new souls appear. The trick is simple, make your intent and then you move on, don't waste another thought on the matter, simply BE. By being you allow the laws of the Universe to manifest all you desire, you are not fretting, worrying or stressing about the outcome, you are TRUSTING, knowing that you will receive what it is you desire. It took me many years to actually understand this process, and a little longer to stop trying and start being.

I wonder......................

Here's a concept to ponder over!

What if happiness had nothing to do with what you have, where you have been or who you are.

Happiness came from what you choose to think.

That by changing your thoughts you would change your life, you would feel happier, change your circumstances, move in a new direction in every area of your life. All you had to do was change the way you think.

Would you start to think about what it is you think about?

We really are our own creators, and we create what we focus upon the most, if you do not like what life is offering you, simply change the channel in your head.


I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.

Carl Jung

Do vegan's enjoy their food?

I have been asked some stupid question when people find out that I follow a vegan diet, however I would have to say this one was the best! Do vegans enjoy their food? I can not speak for others who follow such a diet, I am only able to answer for my self, and the answer is I don't just enjoy my food I am inspired by my food. Most people have a moment where their brain goes totally blank when they attempt to think of something other than a salad that a vegan can eat, the choices are endless and delicious. I am getting hungry just thinking of some of my yummy dinners, Savoury Stuffed Aubergines, Italian Lentils and Spaghetti, Chickpea Burgers, my own special recipes such as Vegetable Chili, Carrot, Celery and Ginger Soup, Layered Potato Casserole, Tropical Fruit Crumble, and the most delicious Chocolate Hazelnut and Raspberry Cake. Need I continue? If you have educated yourself thoroughly on following a vegan diet, you will never run out of recipes or inspiration, it takes more time to prepare your meals, and lucky for me I have always enjoyed cooking so spending hours in the kitchen has never appear like a chore for me. So the answer to the question is quite simply YES.

Having seen a vast improvement in Blossom's health in the past few months, I have decided that she is no longer as frail as I once had thought. She has really blossomed (pardon the pun) since I found her little over a year ago. She has transformed my life, and has captured my heart completely, she also has completely trusted me since the moment we first met.
I have been giving her aloe vera juice and colloidal silver to boost her digestive system and her immune system, the results so far are fantastic. Bless her, I know that I am not her favorite person when 'medicine' time arrives, however, a few cravers or a greenie and all is forgotten and she snuggles down on her special towel on the bed and all is forgiven. Bless her wonderful little heart.


I have just returned from a most invigorating walk along the seaside, the wind was so strong that at times I burst out laughing as I attempted to keep upright as I made my way along the pathway.

There was no one else to be seen, and a couple of times I questioned my own wisdom for going for the walk in the first place, however the more I walked the more I laughed, and as I returned to my car I realised how alive and happy I felt.
There is no remedy for inducing laughter within me quite like a walk along a wild and windy coast line, it always has and always will make me smile and laugh out loud, nature really is the only medicine there is for me.

P'taah's Wisdom

This life is about BEING, human BEING, however it is, with all its joys and all its sorrows. Feel how exquisite it is, your tempestuous path to enlightenment. You choose it.
You love it.
If you did not, it would not be and that is the wondrous and very humorous dichotomy of it.


Blossom's Adventure

Yesterday Blossom had a mini adventure, out of the blue the Universe provided us with a lady interested in buying our home, (a bit of a kick up the bottom, as we were dragging our paws) so we had to vacate the house while she came with the real estate agent to have a look around.
Blossom as usual took it all in her stride, she may have not have been completely impressed with us, after all, having to sit in a parked car by the local park was a rather odd thing to do, especially for a cat! Bless her grumpy little heart!
