We all need to recharge. It’s been a busy year. I recently travelled to Wales to embrace its beauty and inspiration.
It’s really important to keep the balance and look after and invest in ones happiness. It’s very easy to let things get out of control. This wild ride can be scary, but also lead to a great adventure too.
Can you relate to the following? Neglect your wellbeing, become overwhelmed, overworked, exhausted, unhappy, unmotivated. Anxiety is the worry worm that can create so much suffering. This could lead to a number of issues in life, love, health, productivity, hope. Alone in a room full of people, alone in an empty room. When the dark never sees the dawn break. In a clear blue sky. The storm clouds linger. Depression can rear itself in lives that tick boxes of contentment and success. A smile can hide that Oscar Winner facade of hurt, confusion, despair. Pressure and stress creeps oh so thoroughly. If we don’t take action and learn how to deal with it and speak up. With the correct support. Whether that be a Doctor, Therapy, Diet, Sleep, Holistic Treatments, Meditation etc. These journeys that lead to answers, treatments, coping with life changing events to life changing good things. Can we work out all of our problems? I’ve witnessed the darkness, cushioned the fall after the climb. I’ve strengthened and helped nourish the roots that then slowly grow and blossom into the most beautiful thing. That doesn’t make me a heroine. It makes me human.
Money, fame, success for some. But how do you really measure wealth and appreciate happiness? The bottom line. Be grateful every day. Waking up to the wonder is a privilege. The Earth, Tree, Sky, Air, Sea… Just embrace and be who you always wanted to be. Follow your bliss. Don’t walk the path of others if it is not your own. Listen to your intuition.
A quick mention about Lizian events
Liz, Ian and team have been a great support to me. The community has inspired me and I feel privileged to be part of it.
We all can make the best of our lives. If it was easy, we’d all be doing it. Is it the journey, not so much the destination sometimes that we are most grateful for in hindsight?
Our Samhain Celebration. When the veil between is thinnest. We honour our loved ones and Ancestors.

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.
