Embrace the parts of you that stand out.

  When I pulled this card out of the deck today which turns to be one that I drew in December 2016- my initial thoughts were just the parts that are outstanding that are you know the 'lovely bits'- but I was thrown a little intuitive nudge that said no not just those bits remember the original message- I mean the bits that made you stand out from the crowd - that maybe growing up that you tried to change - those…

Your dreams are more supported than you know.

    At the very heart of any dream is a desire to feel something – maybe it’s a desire to feel seen- feel loved- feel supported -feel free. The actual details of the dream are not nearly as relevant as the feeling locked inside them. Often we are not totally aware of the truth behind our dream – so it can look as though it is not happening. However I believe The Universe is always listening and responding accordingly…

Question the thoughts that drain you?

  Have you ever notice how a thought can leave you feeling drained. You focus on this thought over and over, moment after moment - maybe whilst doing the laundry, cooking a meal, walking the dog - whilst someone is talking to you- and the thought is there turning over and over- keeping you in a trance. Focusing on thoughts that don't feel good is like filling up a gorgeous bubble bath - hoping in and then immediately pulling out…

Right now someone is thinking of you and smiling.

Even as I type these words certain people have popped into my mind and a smile has spread across my face- some of these people would I hope know that they have that effect on me but others may not- They may not even know me or have met me just a few times- but everyone has the capacity to make an impact and to bring a smile to someone's face. We are often oblivious to how we matter to others.…

You step into your dark so that your light can shine.

  Last night I took our dogs out down to the beach for a late walk. As it turned out it was one of those magical still nights that we haven’t had for a while due to the fact that The Beast from the East extended its holiday here. Sometimes it takes a while for us to notice the calm -we get so used the storm -we still expect it.  As we moved across the golf course away from the…

The mission is to not to impress but to express!

For any aspiring creative this maybe one of the most freeing and important reminders. Why? Plain and simply so that we can get out of our own way and express who we are. This will be old news to many but it was new to me. I only realised this about 30minutes into my first visit to the Art Therapy room at The Priory. I was about 2 weeks into my stay there when I found out there was even…

What other people think of you is none of your business.

    I remember vividly the first time I heard these words. It was about week 3 into my stay at the Glasgow Priory and I was spending a couple of hours back in the real world in Southside Glasgow with one of the staff members.  She was to be one of my early spiritual guides in the new phase of my human existence. We were sitting having a cup of tea in a little café and we might have…

I usually write these posts the day before, but yesterday I was keep really busy pulling the flower cards for the Reclaim Your Summit offering that I knew I would have to be up early to do this post in time for the 11am deadline, bearing in mind I am going to a yoga fundraiser before that for Tori Chalmers. one of my guests on the Good Vibrations Radio Show. (You can support her too by clicking on the link.)

Always choose the better feeling option.

Today an Interview that I did with the lovely Maja Karllson went out. This is part of the Summit Maja has organised titled Reclaim your life. I relate to this so much because I don't have to think back too many years to remember what it felt like to feel disconnected from a sense of wellbeing. When I started to look back at my life and reflect deep down I knew I had felt very connected as a young child so…

Don’t be limited by your thoughts.

Before we get int todays post I've a quick heads up because apparently I feature in day 4 of the Reclaim your life Summit which is today! So to watch it and the rest of the speakers remember to sign up below... As I looked though the flower messages today I had already decided what I wanted to write about. The interesting thing is I didn't have the thought from my deck that matched it. I was looking for one…
