Introduction

The title of this piece has been renamed since original conception, as it was commanding a lot of spam  comments. It is indeed, a piece I was interviewed on regarding my book in the making, “The Soul Difference”  I hope you like it. More news on the book to follow. Namaste dear friends

That ‘Twitter’, fate connection has come back into my life.  I know it’s by divine involvement. I was finally drawn to check out a very enthusiastic idea from my ‘Twitter’ chum, Nai’lah Carter. She is a very talented, gifted lady who has enormous willpower and strength. I am inspired by her enthusiasm and driven forward by her everyday ideals.

It is my privilege to be part of this amazing experience.  My ‘tweetheart’ has tagged me for

“The Next Big Thing Blog Hop”.  The purpose of this promo is to be able to discover new books you may not have heard about or for works that are still in progress . This is week 21 and I am required to answer the following 10 ‘questions’  then list 5 other authors who will do as I have done, next Wednesday (TODAY! EEK!)  so must press on.  Here goes nothing:  Heartfelt admiration and thanks  to the lovely,  Nai’lah Carter, http://nailahcarter.com/

Be inspired. Check it out.


Ten Interview Questions for “The Next Big Thing”:

Q: What is the working title of your book?

A: The Soul Difference…

Q: Where did the idea come from for the book?

A: I  was once  made to feel so bad by an appraisal at work, that I literally felt my life was turning upside down and that there was no way through it.  I’d worked for a very long time for the same company. Working hard and long hours. Over the years, the workload took its toll on my health and I couldn’t cope any more. Behind the scenes, it felt like there was a conspiracy going on,  plotting against me.  The angst just grew and grew.  I sought the help of a spiritual intuitive, and from that day forward, I was slowly, on the way back to finding my soul and my health.

Q: What genre does your book fall under?

A: Spirituality and enlightenment.   I have travelled a long journey since those ‘black’ days. There is light now within my life.

Q: Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

A: Julia Roberts without a doubt! Think “ Eat, Love PRAY” ~ GOD dwells within.

Q: What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

A: Love your life.

Q: Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?

A:  I believe in me and will take the necessary steps to publish in any guise.

Q: How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

A:  In all honesty, the draft took minutes. It was like time standing still. Thoughts, the questions and answers abound though. I’m filling in all the spaces constantly. From the now…

Q: What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

A: “You can heal your life” Louise L. Hay and “A little light on the Spiritual Laws” by Diana Cooper

Q: Who or What inspired you to write this book?

A:  My own progress through adversity and the love of God.

Q: What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

A: I hope to offer encouragement to believe in yourself and the higher good. The Universe really does deliver. You just have to believe to receive; live in the NOW, act and live your life in pure intent and kindness. What you give, so shall you receive, in wondrous guises you never thought possible before. I trust in my every day, that it will be wondrous and become abundant in many ways.   I am truly blessed and will be guided to live it for the higher good.

I have always found it peaceful, to go the beach and take in the view. Lullaby’s from birds nearby and seagulls flying gracefully overhead, it is easy to drop into a meditative state. I focus my awareness on breathing in rhythm with the lap of the shore. The sun is beating down but there is a welcome breeze. This is bliss. I gaze the shoreline and I see an orb, of soft green luminous light floating by. It’s energy pulses and the radiant light is very tranquil. Watching for a few moments longer, it rises and drifts gently away above me. I close my eyes. I have seen another angel. Another being of light and energy. I see them in blues, golds, greens. They are so peaceful to have around. They remind me that I am never alone, my angels watch over me. Consciously now, I thank them for the visit. I thank them for this beautiful moment. I am completely lost in the now moment. At one with myself and the Universe.  I notice a tear which questions me to open my eyes. I can barely take it all in. I look around me. . Everywhere, I see sparkling orbs of light, just like stars on a starry night, but this is morning! This feeling is divine. All my senses come back to me. I can now hear the cars nearby, people talking, a motor boat sail by. Whilst they had disrupted my experience, they didn’t ruin it. I had been truly blessed. Amen.

 

Bliss by the sea

The Eternal Present

Editors Blog, Spirit and Soul | No Comments

“You receive purpose, when you set a goal. You are the Light within. The Now. The Eternal Present….

I tweeted that today. I am reminded constantly of my energy and light within. My spirit. When I open my eyes and my heart, I see it not only in myself, but in others and nature. What I give, I shall receive. The glory of this beautiful day is not to be taken lightly. It has been a gift. A gift from the Universe, the Almighty and Mother Nature. In one full swoop, we find our spirits lifted, our hearts happy and our minds at rest. What a divine existence, to live in the now and savour every wonderful moment of the eternal present.

I walked by the sea under a blue sky. I heard the waves gently break the beach with such softness and then a gentle whoosh, only to return with the same beautiful melody. The water glistened a trillion starlight sparkles, as the sun shone bright. The gulls flew up high above singing their song and I am reminded, God dwells within. Opening your heart and living in the now, is eternal.

In the woods, I walked a winding path. I could hear the song of the Robin and Lark. As I looked up into the tall trees, these little black shadows of bird, danced as if no one was watching. Their song constant. The chorus of nature.  Then I spied the first bluebell of the wood. Others not yet in bloom. It was a sight to behold.  Exquisite.

It occurred to me, I had enjoyed all this today and felt lifted in spirit. It had cost me nothing. It was simply free to be enjoyed and enjoying to be free… Namaste

I attended the Spiritualist church that my medium had recommended and went on Sunday.

As my husband and daughter were at work, I was on my own and felt compelled to go along. We were few in number, maybe 30 people. It’s premises are not church like – they exist from a very large Victorian House, and have been established since 1926. Going through the door, I told myself this was meant to be. I was greeted by a kind, smiling elderly lady, who when I told her that it was my first time here, took a moment to show me the way to the meeting. There, a few people turned to see who was entering and I proffered my hello’s and again, was greeted with smiles. From the way people were seated, I could tell I was not the only person there to attend on my own. I didn’t feel awkward or out of place. The service started. We had readings of love and guidance. Prayers for peace and harmony. Sang hymns I loved and knew. I was very comfortable here with what I was doing, seeing and hearing.

The guest medium then rose. She gave a heart warming speech on our troubled times.

(Bin Laden’s death had been announced) Whilst some of the world rejoices in his death, I agreed with the speaker in feeling that justice might have been better served if he’d stood sentence. Everyone has their opinions. I make no point of who is right or wrong. It is what it is.

I listened intently. I was hoping I might see some signs myself here with so much spirituality in the room, but I didn’t see any orbs. Then as the medium grew more passionate with her words, the light immediately around her became very bright. Almost as if the sun had come out of a dark cloud. I couldn’t believe for a moment what I was seeing, but I was very conscious of it as the glow permeated my immediate scope of vision. The room was being filled with brighter, yellow light and energy.

She ended with ‘Amen’ and I bowed my head and closed my eyes. ‘Amen’

Returning my gaze to the room, the light had softened and it was back to how it was.

I’ve been several times since, received messages and totally believe we are getting that connection. Affirmation; after all, some were of things only I knew ~ There have been orbs too now. Energies all around us. It’s a healing place where people come together and connect. And it makes me feel bliss…

Orbs & Angels

The phenomena of ORBS is with us…

I have no doubt what so ever that they do exist. Much has been said about the technology of new digital cameras being able to ‘capture’ these images. What ever your take on these photo’s, whether you can accept them for what they are, or whether you are a little more cynical, I only write what I know. I have been able to see them for many years. It first started when I lost my Mother in 2005. I would see these blue orbs floating in the corner of the room. There might be 1,2 or even 5, but they would be there and they would hover. They ‘visited’ when I was at my saddest time. They would visit when I least expected it, but I did see them. At the time, I did not know much of ORBS or spirituality. My life is taking this journey now, and day by day, my spirit is growing. Back to the warm hearted soul that I’ve always been ~ No longer the complete work related stressed wreck that I was. This illness has bought my soul back and I am happy to awaken to it. Apart from blue orbs, I see white ‘sparkles’ and once watched a green sphere, float along the sea in front of me. Like it was playing on the water. No camera available, just a happy memory. Many can’t see the orbs, they come out in the photo’s. Evidence of …? My take is that they are of the universe. Spirits past. Angels joining us. Divine intervention. A visit.

So here we are. I’ve come so far in my spiritual journey that I have decided to share my photo’s with you.  Just double click the images for a better view.  Namaste

I am at the end of the rainbow

I am the sunshine after the rain

I am blessed and visited by angels
 
I am given proof they guide me
  
In all manner of beautiful ways

Hello Everyone

I posted this on my Face Book page today , Sunday 7th August, 2011

“Welcome new friends to my page. I hope you are all in good spirit and enjoying this Sunday… Maybe with family and friends, or peacefully, somewhere quiet and reflective. I’ve been thinking and looking within, to see my spirit guides in meditation. I have met The Great Bear and my Native American guide. Today he wears white, and a single feather… the sign of the angels. Blessed moment.
Wishing peace, light and love as we start a new week. Namaste”

It doesn’t go anywhere near enough to explain the phenomenon of meditation and just what it means to your heart and soul to be able to reach these mystic places. I am so thankful that meditation works for me and that I can connect on a higher plane, to my guides and spirits. These lucid moments have also come to me in momentary visions of short bliss. Recently, whilst relaxing in the garden, under the soft canopy of the umbrella, I closed my eyes. The hot sun was making me squint with it’s brightness. Instant ease and relaxed muscles ensued as I rested my head on the soft cushion. There, in my minds eye, I visioned my mother and father, smiling and looking at me, both wearing sunglasses. It was such a sweet moment. “Oh, you’ve come to see me have you” I asked, and they smiled back at me. It was a clear and vivid moment.  I could really see them. Friday, 5th August, 2011 would have been their 61st Wedding Anniversary. I know, that albeit, for a very brief moment, they had paid a visit to let me know that all was well and that they are still around for us. I could see their happiness, being back together. Their joy. They are “Two Hearts” being together for all time.

What I really love about this, is that I know I only write from the heart. I only write what I know, and when it is written from the heart, by me, you know it’s the truth.

Namaste

Guide

Intro..

What follows is my true recollection of a guided meditation to find my inner guide. My only wish is that meditation worked for everybody. Sadly for some it doesn’t, or maybe  just not right  now in their lives. Comfort will come to them in other ways.   

   
Guide  

 

Guided Meditation ~ This is an account of my true life experience meditating. As I listen to the tape, I am comfortable and relaxed. My feelings of anxiousness have disappeared and I know I am being comforted. The gentle voice guides me through my meditation and what follows, is how it really happened…   
Allow your body to gently relax. Move yourself around on your chair until you feel perfectly comfortable. I am comfortable, breathing easy. Now I want you to move your attention DOWN from your head to your chin and DOWN from your chin to your throat and DOWN from your throat to your chest. DOWN, DOWN to your stomach.   

Now move down into that safe place deep within yourself, that place which is just below your navel. This is your sacred sanctuary, a place that only you know about. I am breathing easy and see a yellow aura, a warm glow.  

From that place, I want you to move into the hallway in your mind. Along the hallway are many doors. One particular door is of golden light. You feel drawn by that door and you move through the door of light into a place of peace, comfort and protection. These doors are on the left hand side only, curling off into the distance. One door is open and I see myself walk through. I see my clothes I am wearing today as I walk through the door, I am viewing from above. I see myself in the woodland already…Once through the door, you find yourself on a path through the woods. As you move along the path, you faintly hear the sound of water. Birds sing in the trees.I can hear a bird tweet, and water running. It is bubbling, moving gently..   

The sunlight filters through the canopy of deep, green trees overhead. A warm, gentle breeze caresses your face and blows lightly through your hair. I am grounded, and can see looking up, the sunlight through the trees, the warm sunshine is cascading down through them and I feel the air on my face as I look up. You feel as if you are being kissed by God. The warmth of the sun is how I feel God is with me. The smell of the forest and of wild flowers surrounds you, bathing you in an essence so sweet and so wild that your senses are reeling. I smell earth and water…You come to a body of water. Because it is part of the enchanted forest, this water is pure, clean and clear. I see it clearly and hear it’s gentle rippling sound. It is cool and inviting. You sit on the edge of the bank and dip your cup into the sacred water and you drink. I drink some water and note that it is from a plastic cup that has appeared in my hand You are comforted and refreshed.  

You arise and continue moving on your path through these wondrous woods. Soon you come to a clearing in the trees. The clearing is cupping the horizon within my view, it is quite close and through the centre, there is light. The clearing is surrounded by stately oaks, their branches extended to protect you. The colour of the wild flowers stands out strong against the greens of the grasses and the brown-black of the tree barks. These flowers are purple, like bluebells and have slender, green grass around them. They carpet the floor of the wood. You breathe deeply of the sweet air. You know this place… you’ve been here before. Maybe in your dreams or maybe in life – it doesn’t matter. You just know that it is your haven.Yes   

I have been here before in a previous meditation and I can’t help but smile as I remember my beautiful guide. An angel -like dove with soft white wings which expanded to hold me. An aqua orb is in my view now and it is glowing and changing to gold hovering in the distance … There is wonderful, soft green grass growing here and it invites you to sit down and rest. Now you begin to hear in the distance other-worldly music,I am already hearing distance sounds of American Indian chants and flute   

Tibetan bells… flute music… I hear the flute music soft chanting… I am hearing the soft chanting and I have an American eagle soaring in the sky around me.You listen carefully, as you feel drawn to the music.   

You look up and see purple mountains in the distance. There’s the eagle . There are snow capped mountains in the far distance and he shows me what he can see from above. It is breathtaking. As you look, a tiny golden light appears. It draws closer and closer to you. This gold orb is coming toward me now leaving a glowing trail. It floats gently up the path toward your little sanctuary. Its light is soft and gentle. Yet it shines with a brilliance you have never seen. It is glowing with candle like qualities, solid and radiant at the same time. As it reaches the outer edge of your sanctuary, it stops and becomes a large pulsating crystalline light. You watch. You wait. It has started to expand like a snow crystal and is bright white. You give the light permission to enter your space. I have bowed my head in respect and acknowledgement. The Light draws forward and hovers just before you. The Light shimmers. Soft strands of gold stream forth like a flower blossoming. As each petal of this light unfolds, you see that something or someone is inside. I recall the wings of my previous guide, (a dove) but I see the head rise and this time it is my American Bald Eagle. Then you see before you a wondrous being that you recognize as your spirit guide. You know it is your spirit guide because you feel a strong surging of love pouring out from it to you and you feel, deep in your heart, a strong answering outpouring of love from you to it. The Eagle has come to give me strength and power. It is showing me that it flies the skies and that you can reach heaven. It has no boundaries and it is free. It shows me he has come to protect and guide me. You feel completely safe with this being. It may or may not tell you its name, but it calls you by your name. The Eagle holds me in it’s mighty wings. We do not speak. Spirit Guides will take any form that you need to understand right now. It can be in the form of a human, an animal, an object or some divine form. See it! imagine it! Know it is real! So very real, I could see the contour of it’s feather, hear them rustle and the reflection of myself in it’s eye. What form is your spirit guide in? Again, it is a beautiful bird. What shape is it? It is so grand. It is all knowing, all seeing.   

If it is human, is it male or female? What does it smell like? What colour is it? It has a white regal head and brown eyes. He is the epitome of strength. I have a tear rolling down my cheek as he embraces me.  What does it feel like? He feels safe. Begin to carry on a conversation with this wondrous being. Ask its name. What is its purpose? Why has it come to you? We are communicating, but we are not speaking. He has come to give me strength and keep me safe. No Words. He shows me soaring free in the sky with no shackles of life to hold him down. Let this being communicate itself to you and tell you why it is working with you. He has come to give me love and above all strength to realise my dreams. He knows I have felt scared, about the future, and comforts me in his wings   

Ask it how best to call upon it in the future. He shows me to come back to this place and my guides will be here for me. I may not see you Eagle, and I remember my Dove guide. Both stand tall and proud with comforting wings. Eagle lets me know he flies up over me, even though I may not see him. Ask it to let you know it is there, consciously, within the next few days, whenever you need help. He shows me wondrous flocks of birds in flight. When you feel finished, thank your guide for the opportunity to meet and work with it. I am comforted. His winged embrace has subsided. I see him soar high above me over to the mountains. As the golden light folds back up around your guide, send it off with your best thoughts and love. The orb is now in front of me, it’s white light subsiding to a golden glow.  As it withdraws from your space, moving back up the path, you sit back down in your spot. You understand that in this inner sanctuary you invite any and all of your guides into your awareness. And I am blessed. This is exciting and you are fascinated with your experience, your experience of expanding your horizons. You breathe deeply, relaxing and reliving in your mind, what has happened. BREATHE.   

As you do so, the path and the woods begin to fade and you find yourself gently coming back to the present… to this room, this time and this place. It is like the lights going up in a cinema. You have been watching this magical scene unfold on the screen in front of you. You have taken in every word and been there. Right there, in the moment. You have been transported to a different world away from it all…When you are ready, be sure to drink some water and maybe eat a slice of bread to ground yourself.   

Right now, it would be helpful to you if you wrote down all you have experienced, exactly as it happened. I did. This is what I know..Bless you. A true gift

Divine rainbow light

I’d gone to the park one lunchtime. It was lovely and warm so I took a blanket and sat down on the grass. Looking at the beautful clouds in the sky, I took a photo. I was so excited. I had received a rainbow! Divine light. It blessed my day and lifted my spirits. It prooves you can’t always see things, but they are there. This is what I know.
