Look Beyond the Rocks....

Is there anyone else out there who plans to go to the beach to retreat, reconnect, to find solace within the ebb and flow of the waves, only to discover the bluddy tide is out?!
Even if I was so inclined, which I'm not, I couldn't even throw myself off the longest pier because I'd only end up on my arse - which is pretty much the norm for me at the moment!  I suppose I could have jumped into the mud and prayed for quicksand....
As I sat there, looking at the landscape, I couldn't help but feeling the mud and rocks symbolised my life right at that moment. Everything felt murky and full of obstacles..  I tossed up whether to go back to the comfort of home where I could hide from the biting cold, or remain seated on a stone cold (ha ha) rock, which was probably giving me 'monkey piles' like my Mum warned me about whenever I sat on cold concrete.....A part of me felt I needed to sit there until I could see past the dark and dismal to the tranquil beauty in the distance.
As I sat there on the pile of rocks lying haphazardly around me, I noticed they were kinda smooth after years of being pummeled
If I was to equate that to me, I would say, yes, life has shaped me, taken my rough edges off - not without sacrifice or pain, I'm sure! So, within that context, if I was to consider this pile of different shaped rocks around me, I could think of them as my talents, skills and abilities. There are small ones, strange looking ones, big 'in your face' ones, just like my talents or skills. The fact they are all heaped in a big messy pile is relevant too (and yes, I do realise this is a man-made is mine - well, woman-made! LOL)
Like the rocks stacked here, I am struggling to work out which dream I should be following, which ones inspire and lift me.
All too often as we accumulate skills and talents, but we don't see them as amazing abilities. We take them for granted, or lack the confidence to feel proud of our achievements. It's only when someone points out how awesome it is, that we take a step back and notice how incredible we are.
This happened to me this morning when I spoke to a good friend and set me to thinking about what I want to do in my life. I know I love my writing, I love helping others with psychic readings and healing through reiki and massage, but is this where my passion is, my fire? I already know the answer, these are my passion, they light the fire in my soul, so why am I doing all this other 'stuff'? Its time to cull the ones that don't serve my purpose or help me to be all that I can be.
Back to my seaside musing...
In front of me the rocks thin out and scatter, reducing in size. To me, these represent the obstacles we encounter on our way to personal greatness. By the way, personal greatness isn't measured by wealth, possessions or a great relationship, unless of course its loving ourselves wholly and unconditionally. It's about being all you are meant to be. These rocks are the big incidents in our life, the ones that create change whether we want it or not.
The small rocks gradually give away to rubble and eventually muddy looking sand. These are the day to day tribulations or 'hiccups', like missing a bus or a green light, spilling sugar as we put it in our coffee mug or running out of our favourite biscuits. Apart from those ones that disrupt our life and change our day or life irrevocably, we barely register the impact these muddy parts have.
Just past that murky patch, the sand is is gleaming in the sun (I have to use a little imagination here, as the sun is behind a cloud and I can't quite see the colour of the sand from here, but I 'know' this to be true).
The sea laps at the sand invitingly, encouraging me to look past all the boulders, rocks, stones, rubble and dirty sand to begin a journey of discovery, full of light and opportunity, to me, to my personal greatness....if only I take that first step.
I can't take all these rocks with me, or I'll need scuba gear. However, if I take those ones that matter most to me, the ones that light a fire in my belly. I can probably take some and still keep my head above water. Who knows? Once I have put faith in my 'rocks', they just might float to the surface or even better yet, they may float higher and carry me to where I truly want to be.
It's all about faith, faith in our choices, our abilities, what and who we love and most importantly faith in OURSELVES!
Love and Respect

PS. In the distance I can see someone sitting at the end of another pier. I wonder if they are seeing the beauty around them, or like me, do they have to 'look past' the rocks to get there?
Life is beautiful if we just take the time to sit still and 'be' to notice.

'Owning' Me...

There comes a time when we admit there is more to us than we let others see. For me, setting up an anonymous website so I could do readings without anyone knowing it was me, meant I could do what I love without censorship. The problem is that by doing this I was only allowing others to see pieces of me while keeping a lot of myself hidden away. I have been doing a lot of thinking lately and have finally come to conclusion it is time to not just speak my truth, but to be my truth.
This is about allowing myself to shine, without feeling I should keep myself hidden or acceptable in the eyes of some..
In life everyone has a perception of who or what they believe others to be. All too often we drift along with their tide, allowing them now and then to see glimpses of our true self, but mostly we play the role that they have created for us.
I'm not blaming anyone else for my hidden self, in my own movie I was portrayed as someone who 'fit in' with others. My perception of how I should be was behind all this. After all, I had written a serious book, who would take it seriously if they knew about my 'other talents'? And really speaking, its all poppycock! (love that word!) I am who I am and people will always believe whatever they want, so how about I spend some time believing in me?!
...and so today I am opening up to my true self, to my awesomeness and allowing everyone to know more about the real me, the me who is itching to get out and be a part of my life.
I encourage everyone to open up even a portion of themselves no one is aware of and allow them to see how amazing you really are...we don't have to 'dumb down' or smother our real persona to get on in this world. We were born amazing, perfect and divine, and you know what? We will remain that way until the day we die...and maybe not even then.....

Responsibility for All

With knowledge comes responsibility. As a psychic, it is vital the messages I deliver are given with integrity and love. At no stage is an angelic message designed to make you feel you can't trust your instincts or believe you don't have the ability to alter your destiny. A reading is not about making you feel less than you are. Contact from the other side is not dictatorial, nothing is set in stone. 
Generally speaking these messages are like points of interest on a road map, allowing us to find the way to our own personal greatness.  We each have freedom of choice. We can choose to take on board the information from a reading or ignore it completely.  It is important to realise if what we are being told doesn't feel like our truth, then the chances are it probably isn't.  This doesn't include the stuff we know is true but we don't want to hear it, by the way.
There is also a fine line between asking questions of spirit and being dependent on it. Spirit is happy to help us with pointers along the way, but do you really think they want to be asked if you will get a prime parking spot during rush hour? (that's a job for the parking angels!) Its not that these questioned are considered trivial to spirit, they want us to trust in our own judgement and actually living our life as if you own it!
What would life be like if we knew every second of every day what was going to happen? Bloody boring, if you ask me! Doesn't there have to be an element of unknown in our lives to keep the thrill of existing alive?
And really, if you know you didn't put in a good enough effort at work today, you don't need a psychic hotline to tell you how your boss will react when he finds out, do you?
Its not just about psychics being responsible with our readings, its also about you being responsible for your life as well. Trust in you. Trust in your ability to know the answers. Trust that you are in charge of your life and all you do in it.
Psychic readings are great when life sucks, you feel stuck, lost or need guidance, but please remember thats what it really is, just guidance.
Which brings me to my next point. Anything can change. So if you get a reading telling you that something will happen and it doesn't, its time to look at what you did or didn't do to make that come about. Anyway are you do you know without a doubt that by missing that opportunity a better one won't be waiting to come along? It may just take a bit longer for it to happen. Don't live by a reading or feel your life is shaped around it, your life is shaped by you.
If you think that by not taking hold of an opportunity someone else gets it, well thats incorrect too. No one can 'steal' your opportunities, everyone has their own blessings in life. When one receives another doesn't go without. The universe is unlimited, there is enough for everyone.

Protecting Your Universal 'Pot of Gold'

They say imitation is the highest form of flattery, so if someone copies your idea don't be angry or resentful.  Even if you thought this idea would improve your finances and you are worried they might stop you from doing well, don't.  They are not the same person as you and will not lend the same personal touch or energy as you. 
The universe is infinite and there is plenty enough for everyone.  Others may do the same as you, but people will be attracted to the energy that suits them best.  Everyone will approach an idea/thought/service differently and you need to have faith that the people who are meant to come to you will. Don't be upset about the people that go to them, they may not have been attracted to your way of providing that service anyway.
If you harbour resentment or anger and live in a state of lack then that will be just what you can expect to happen.  You won't be able to blame anyone else either, it won't be anyone else's fault but your own.  How sure are you the universe doesn't tell a range of different people at the same time to follow the same path providing a service or creating something new?  Doesn't it make sense the more people providing it ,the easier it will be to reach a broader group and spread the message?
Once upon a time I created a service and I was disappointed when someone created one that was startlingly similar.  Originally I was upset and resentful until I realised the way that person approached this service was entirely different from me and the type of people they attracted was nothing like the ones I would. 
I pondered on the idea that there are probably many of us compelled by the universe to do the same thing at the same time.  After all I would have to be superhuman to provide this service to everyone and isn't it great that everyone can be a part of helping others? We are here for the collective good and should stop thinking of life as limited and that we lose out if someone else does well.  When they do well, they don't take from your pot of gold, we each have our own.
When you think of it this way, you suddenly have the freedom to do what you want, be all you can and have more energy to do so.  Time spent on worrying about lack is just that 'time spent' and you can never get it back, no matter how hard you wouldn't you be better off?
with love, respect and integrity

The Freedom of Forgiveness

We all know someone who we feel has 'done us wrong' in our lives,  At a function the other day I met up with someone I had not spoken to for a long time.  At first it was awkward, I am ashamed to say I tried desperately to avoid this person because I felt hurt by her actions many years ago.  I decided this was a silly way to act.  I didn't want to spend my life hiding from anyone, all I had to do was speak my truth, resolve the issue and move on. 
There had been many times I had thought of this person and mourned the loss of our friendship, but I was stuck in my own 's***' and wouldn't do anything about it.  I know I'm not alone here, many of us do this.  Rather than sort it out, we swallow those horrible emotions and pretend we don't feel any pain or sadness.  We build a wall around our heart, brick by brick.  Back to my story...
We ended up talking for a while and although we reconnected, I still felt a block around my heart, so obviously just talking about 'stuff' wasn't going to make this go away. 
Wandering away from the crowd we were able to discuss the events that had resulted in me 'cutting' this person out of my life.  I was surprised to discover she too had missed our friendship and her stomach churned whenever she thought about what might have happened.  Although I had walked away from our friendship, I had never explained why, so she hadn't had the luxury of closure.  I, of course, believed she wouldn't notice I was no longer around...
As we amicably ironed out all the miscommunications, misconceptions and hurts, we realised we were both keen to renew our friendship despite what had happened, that we valued our friendship enough to start again.  Together we laughed, we cried, we hugged...
I learnt a lot from this experience. 
 - We never really know the repercussions a choice or action we make impacts on others
 - Releasing a hurt can be incredibly liberating
 - Sometimes our perception of others neglect or rejection may just be that - our perception!
 - It isn't until we have forgiven an event, action, situation or a person, we realise how it was stored within our body - all of a sudden there is space in our heart for love instead of fear or hate
As I drove home the sky seemed bluer, my heart was lighter and my soul was singing.  The feeling was so amazing I wanted to contact everyone I felt had ever wronged me so I could feel this way forever.
Do you have some unfinished business that could be transformed into a sense of awesomeness?  Try it, I definitely recommend it!

Are you being true to your tune?

A couple of weeks ago I was looking after a sick grandie. As we were cuddling on the couch, Sesame Street was playing on the TV. I was singing along to one of those catchy songs, but after a while I stopped to listen to the words.....
You may or may not know this one, so I have added the link, just in case you want to hear it again...or for the very first time.....
Anyway the words go like this: 'Sing, Sing a song. Sing it loud, sing it strong. Don't worry that it's not good enough for anyone else to hear, just sing, sing a song.'
I couldn't help thinking how apt this is. All too often we smother the secret sides of ourselves, our dreams, our fears,our triumphs, as well as our pain.
We can sometimes get so caught up in what other people will think or say about us, we keep our song to a 'low hum', or we don't even attempt to sing at all.
Sometimes we forget that it doesn't matter what anyone else's opinion is, because they aren't the focal point of our melody. They aren't even a part of the song, unless we choose to include them.
The 'song' is completely about the person who is singing along to the music...and the can't be heard by everyone else....because it comes from within!
So lets remember to sing our song, loud and proud. Lets not reduce the volume to a whisper because someone else has an issue, an opinion, or believes they have the right to 'judge' our song.
Testing...two...two...two.... ♪♫♪♪♫♫♪♫♪ xx

Angels/Spirit are here to help - are you listening?

Sometimes we get so caught up in our day to day life, we forget to notice what is going on around us.  The right people and opportunities are sent our way, but all too often we don't see them.  It is not until we look back later we see the signs and indications that were there to help us all along.  There are some of us who keep plodding along, in spite of the messages we are being given, believing we are on the right path and 'getting it right'.  
We may be on the right path, but sometimes
we need a little external help to show us the shortcut, or what we need to change within ourselves to speed up the process.  I know this is true of me as well as many others.  I sometimes prefer to take the road less travelled, which is usually steep, dangerous and dusty....and then I wonder why it takes so long, why it feels like I take two steps forward and one step back!?  I know I'm not alone here - you know what I'm talking about, don't you?  ...but then I turn on my ears and eyes... and suddenly, the road turns into a pleasant easy walk to where I am headed....
