Last year, I was working all hours in a managerial job, that promised the world but delivered misery.. That pursuit of financial stability and ‘abundance!’ I was miserable, stressed out, exhausted, irritable, felt victimized. I then made a choice. I resigned from the corporate rat race and went off to San Francisco, Los Angeles and Las Vegas. A fantastic adventure.

Upon my return. I started a part time job in Pagan/Wicca sales in a shop and began to really pursue my tarot reading business. My passion is helping others. Yes I need to pay the bills. There are times of struggles. I also like a treat, a good gig, cheese, Rugby and adventuring. But you know what? I’m grateful for everything I have. My family, my friends, loved ones, pets.
When you sit on a bench looking out at the lake, watching the sunrise..with a flask of tea. Life is good.
This week I ran a Herbal Incense workshop at Rainbow Bridge in Castle Donington. Big thanks to my friend and ‘Yoda’ Sally Wathen. Who has taught me so much. Crystal Healing, Kinesiology, Hopi Ear Candling. http://www.rainbow-bridge.co.uk/
Being around positive folk is inspiring. Turning a card, getting its message, my guides advice, sharing knowledge. Going to events, talks, meeting spiritual minded folk. Finding answers, guidance, love, happiness, peace..new things. I sought, I asked, I am grateful.. I get. Things can be turned around. We can all be in pretty dark places, sometimes feel there are no answers. The risk is too scary or seems unobtainable. But if you don’t try..You will never know. Do you work to live or live to work. “Happiness resides not in possessions, and not in gold, happiness dwells in the soul.” “By desiring little, a poor man makes himself rich.” – Democritus
“Happiness is not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.” – President Franklin D. Roosevelt
The pursuit of happy.
Have a great adventure.

What is your universal wish list? Did you get what you wanted so far?
Is everything going your way? Do you feel good about the present and future. We cant change the past. But we can learn to deal with it better. We can ask the right questions and gain the answers we need. We can ask the wrong questions and the universe will give you the answers you need. 2017. I met more inspiring souls. I also hope I helped a few along the way.
What is on your 2018 shopping list?
To be safe
What do you really want?
Do you concentrate on the bad? Or do you retrain your thoughts and emotions with the good?
Its very easy to concentrate on all of the bad things. If you are surrounded by negativity. The Challenge is to change this. No one said it would be easy. A musician does not become a brilliant musician if they don’t practice. You may not always win at Monopoly. You may flip the board and storm off in a rage. How often do you visualize that win. Not the want. But seeing yourself already the winner?
When you wake up. Is it a ‘Poor me’ day or is it. This is the day when I make a positive change?
Upon our walls is this (inspired by Tony Robbins – Thank you)
1. 3 minutes of gratitude. Think about 3 things I’m really grateful for.
2. 3 minute prayer for family, friends,
3. 3 minute process of top 3 things I want to accomplish.
All that we are is a result of what we have thought.
Happiness is not a destination. It is a method of life.
Cherish your visions and your dreams as they are the children of your soul, the blueprints of your ultimate achievements.
– Napoleon Hill
A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks he becomes.
The entire universe is a great theatre of mirrors.
– Alice Bailey
These quotes, advice is written on life’s walls. Yet still folk ignore. It is the map to happiness. It could be your life’s work.
I want to open a retreat. In 2017 quit the corporate job that stressed me out and took all of my time, I am happy. We have begun the process to get to our goal. We have visualized the goal. That goal is already accomplished.
I want to help. The greater good is the greater reward. When the upset, grieving sorrow hurts. When you have lost your way. It sit your fear of failure, or fear of effort. When your past controls your present and future. I can help. You can help yourself too. Just ask. Don’t give up.
The start to 2016 has been tough. We try to see the start of a new year as new beginnings, resolutions. When loved ones pass over it hurts. It’s sad, it’s unfair, it’s unjust. Somethings are expected. Others out if the blue. One can feel one is surrounded by ongoing sad events. Wondering if one could have tried harder to prevent things. The Universe’s blueprint for destiny and fate can at times seem cruel. No one here gets out alive in body. Our spirit travels through body, time, the ether. It adventures through lives. With amnesia in each one. Past life regression can tap into these. Flashes, Deja vu. Dreams, meditation. Your are not alone. Your journey is full of helpers, guides, experience, lessons. You are the driver. You may be able to choose a different direction at your crossroads. You wake up in a fresh morning with blue skies and breathe in Bliss. Everything feels calm, good, hopeful.
I find some of my clients enter with a sense of fear with the weight of the world upon their shoulders.
I’m so grateful when I find out happiness or success has arisen from helping. Or just some needed answers. It does feel genuinely good to help. Otherwise I really wouldn’t be doing it. The world can seem dark and dreary. Sometimes you’ve just got to open your eyes and look again in the right direction to see its light and beauty.

Today we wandered. .. And wondered. The wind spoke bitterly. The sunshine gave warmth. During times of reflection and emotion. The end of Autumn. The falling down of the green leaves I love so much in summer. We walked peacefully through Southwell Minster. Lit candles and set a prayer for peace.
Sending love to all of Mankind. Reflecting on how blessed I am. Acknowledging how hard I have worked and what I have discovered getting here. Yes… here to this moment. How important my loved ones are to me. I hope in 2016 more people can find their true peace, happiness and closure. More can accept we are allowed to have differing opinions. The politics of the present state of the world is for you to discuss. I help others. I’m not here to judge. My ideals and ambitions started at seed. They have grown into reality. They are true to the greater good and genuine.
The spirits that guide me. Their messages bring tears of relief. Knowing.. They are ok and that you miss them. Even though their physical embodiment is presently over. Their energies exist still.
