This just came to me while weeding the garden yesterday
To the brainwashed
The ignored theory.
And the jury.
For the souls lost
The grieving and teary
To the nay sayers
And dream weavers
The dragon slayers
The on the fencers
And armed up defenses
To the planet lovers
The earth keepers
And positive awakeners
The star gazing believers
Whatever you are experiencing is yours to behold, but, remember each other within this ode.
For we are all unique in feelings and action. But we are all one and the same, without distraction.
Come together, unite, one mind one heart, accept each other, that’s always a good start.
Be grateful for the little things, let’s raise the vibe.
No hate or anguish can survive where only love resides.

Xmas eve of the past,
That last minute shopping dash,
Cleaning till everything sparkles like glass,
Preparing the veggies with loved ones,
Sharing a glass,
Singing Xmas songs,
Watching Bridget Jones
And opening Xmas Eve gifts before bed.
Xmas eve 2020
What a different scene for many,
For those with partners and kids,
Not much will be different,
But for those living alone,
Family has never felt so distant.
So pick up that phone,
Send a text or email,
Better still, face time
and gap the divide
Bring a smile, an opening of the heart,
Break the Isolation.
Check in on a neighbor
the single mum,
the ones alone,
and don’t forget the wildlife
Give back to mother earth.
We are all connected in hearts and minds,
No restrictions can cancel that bond,
So give thanks for your loved ones,
And give thanks for this day,
for the extra breath.
The Love we give, we do receive,
and lets pray together
For the new year, a reprieve.
Wishing you all a Happy, Healthy, and Inspired Christmas.
Love and Blessings
Been awake since 4am…still amazes me the amount of traffic at that time on the motorway. I mean it makes sense to work early morning because its too hot by 8am but seriously what jobs are they going to? what time do they finish? and are they asleep by 7pm every night to be on the road by 4am?
Not sure who has it worse those who’s body clocks are working on WTF? all the time to earn money to pay for stuff they never see, or, people like me who barely get by financially but get to enjoy watching the stars from my bed or from my hammock, get to spend time with nature with my fur-babies to play, dance create and live in the moment.
Its a funny old world, as programmed beings we are expected to follow a certain pattern and when life kicks you off the hamster wheel and stops you from getting back on it, people judge you without knowing your situation fully and even then some still sit in judgement.
What I have come to realise in the past 7yrs that I have been ill and out of work, is that neither scenario brings 100% happiness or contentment. Everything is in balance, equal opposites, there can be no light without dark. Our task no matter what life throws at us is to ‘Acknowledge’ those moments that lift our hearts, that switch our brains off from the struggles in our life, in the world and fully appreciate them. Because those moments no matter how fleeting are the reason we are alive. When we die, we wont be recalling the day we earn’t X amount of money on that one job, or buying that cinema screen size TV that we never get time to watch. We will remember the special moments spent that filled our Hearts and minds with LOVE and JOY!
Make the effort every day to be fully present in the special moments.
I will go greet the sunrise now to give thanks for another day and to send prayers out into the world. 🙏
Many Blessings to you all.
Summer is nearly officially upon us, though here in Cyprus Summer came super early, and after the long wet winter our bodies are not adjusting well, Autumn never came, we jumped straight from winter to summer. Stay hydrated and indoors as much as possible, give your bodies a chance to acclimatise and avoid heat stroke or worse. Its going to be a long one.
Just like our bodies need the seasons to adjust and recalibrate to function properly, so it is with development on the spiritual path. There is no jumping ahead of to get to the top of our game, we have to integrate, digest, experience, practice, hone our skills before moving on to the next step. Otherwise we overload our system with information without integrating it thoroughly, and this leads to all sorts of issues, not only or us, but more importantly for those who seek our council.
In this techno age where we have a myriad of opportunities at our fingertips, temptation is flaunted in front of us daily, like a siren to a sailor, drawing us in with the promise of something more….
Do not be fooled by the marketing schemes, or the ego’s fear of wanting more, of not knowing or being enough. It is a trap, and one that may bring you short term gratification, but, will leave you feeling unsatisfied and unaccomplished in the long run.
The spiritual path is like a fine wine, you need to absorb it with all your senses before sipping it in slowly, absorbing all the subtle elements that that particular vessel holds.
Take your time, enjoy the journey on the path and along the way you will meet people who will hold some knowledge to accelerate your growth spurts, naturally.
This is the big question…
Who are you when you are not being who others expect you to be?
Who do you become when others see that you are human, with all your failings and achievements?
Who do you become when you look in the mirror?
Who are you being when you interact with a stranger for the first time?
Who is the one being when you be?
Do you feel safe to simply be? To show YOU in all your colours?
Do you fear that others will judge or walk away if you truly step into being all of you, all of the time, 7 days a week?
Are those same people truly being all they can be?
Too often we change or adapt our true selves to fit in the boxes society puts us in, stamped and labelled for the world to see.
I say to you, step out of the box, wear it as a hat if you must till you feel comfortable being fully exposed and naked, but remove the label and replace it with, this is ME!
Then throw that box in the recycle bin and step into a new confidant you, the you you were always meant to be.
Shine your light so brightly that those pretending to be, have to close the lid on their boxes and those that are removing theirs can see they are not alone.
To be yourself in a world filled with pain is the bravest thing you can be.
Love you, all of you. No excuses, no blame, no regret, no shame.
Do not worry about those who fall away, one day they too shall remove their boxes of shame and find themselves once again.
Be the change by BEING your authentic self and loving every aspect of your magnificent, flawed, vibrant, unique self.
The world needs more honest communication and that starts with the conversation with self.
Mountains rise reaching to the sky but below the eye they touch the heart of our mother. Holding her flesh together like her bones.
The trees reach towards the sun, their roots travelling deep, far and wide, securing it’s magnificence to the surface. Like sinews holding everything in place.
The waters flow from the heavens, permeating deep to replenish under ground streams. Like the blood flowing through our veins.
Thunder booms in the sky while lighting hits the ground with a jolt so strong it can power a car. Like the force of the pump that beats our heart.
The wind blows from all directions, sometimes soft, sometimes hard. Blowing up tyres and sailing boats. Filling our lungs and bringing us life.
Oil comes up from the deepest parts and travels around our mother, clearing, lubricating. Like the blood pumping our heart.
The grass grows long, or short, dancing in the breeze, like a beacon for passers by, absorbing the dew and offering shade. As our hair, connecting us to heaven and earth as a natural antenna and umbrella.
These are but a few ways of how we are all connected with nature, with each other.
As above so below, as without so within.
What we do to our planet we do to ourselves and vice versa.
Is your body your temple? Or Is the mountain? If you revere only one, then life is out of balance. For without one there is no other.
Take time to observe nature today and see how she is a reflection of you.
What can you change within yourself to change what you see out in the world?
Take action today, tomorrow is not guaranteed.
Throughout my life I have been told that I’m too kind, generous and selfless. Like it’s a bad thing. They say I should think about myself more and be less giving because people take advantage and don’t care about me or help me when they can.
Now this may be true, but, that just shows who they are as people, and is not a reflection on me.
I just give people enough rope to hang themselves with then walk away.
If I have helped someone regardless of how they disrespect or disregard me, my heart is full knowing I did all I could with what I had to work with.
From what I can see in the world today, too many people only help if there is something in it for themselves. They become hardened by all the ungrateful, disrespect from their efforts to lead by example. Or simply are out for all they can get.
How then is the world meant to change? Or as I hear and say all too often, ‘go back to how it used to be’?
We must not become bitter at the unrecognition, the rejection, the disrespect, the lies and false promises. Nor succumb to the feelings of isolation that these people ignite within us.
We must recognize the gift they bring, the awareness of your own inner strength that in spite of others ignorance you have the ability to forgive the wounded child in front of you and love them anyway.
We the way showers may have chosen a difficult path but we must continue to hold the lantern up in the dark, so that others of like mind can find us. If we succumb to the darkness of our ego self then we will be lost forever in the sea of lost souls.
