Bleeding Souls

There is so much negativity floating around in the stratosphere and I can't fathom why on this earth people continue to cultivate this highly corrosive and debilitating 'cloud of darkness'. It burns like acid and our souls bleed under the weight of it. Life is difficult enough to traverse without this added burden. THINK before you open your mouth, control what emanates from it, DON'T be responsible for barbed arrows flying indiscriminately across the Universe wounding any who have the misfortune of crossing their flight path. DON'T gossip willy nilly about all and sundry, it is as poison to the soul and almost always incorrect in it's content. DON'T unsheath your knife and stab it directly through the heart of a friend because you feel you or your ideals may have been slighted, a true friend would not contemplate this avenue!! Be wise and seek their counsel first with the view of healing any misjudgment. As my beautiful 82 year old mother-in-law's mother said to her many, many years ago, "If you don't have something nice to say about someone, DON'T say anything at all!!"

Look to the stars when you lose your way, they will comfort and guide you if you will but listen. Look deeply into your self and say NO I will not participate in this destructive whirlwind of negativity, I am free from it's burden, free from it's pain. I will NOT perpetuate it's cycle. Stand on the side of empathy and compassion, allow your soul's breath to move forward into your heart space and take up the wings of the Warriors of Light. Move gracefully through life and spread your wings wide and far, heal with your touch, DON'T harm!!

Laughter is the best medicine!!

It's been a funny week, literally. Seems I am constantly laughing at........ myself!! Blooper week, where just about everything one touches turns out wrong. Food all over myself, food all over the floor. If it could be dropped, it dropped. No Leanne the dirty dishes don't go in the fridge and the cat food is not served on the couch??? After swanning around for a few hours in my pink and orange Tigger PJs I looked down and suddenly realized my button up top was inside out?? Laughed my head off and wondered why on earth the two boys didn't enlighten me with, "mum you are looking a tad random there!!" Went online to book a flight to Mackay so I could attend eldest's engagement celebration and realized midway through the transaction I was booking for the week AFTER???? Oops, that could have been embarrassing. On dusk the plants were calling in that desperate tone they get when I have neglected them for a couple of days, "hey you in there, we are SAGGING here," so off I dutifully went to appease their parchedness and wondered why on earth my decorative chunk of rock I nicked from off the Birdsville Track was moving while I was watering it and the plant???? Thinking I had picked up some strange camouflaged alien device I bent closer only to have a frog flip in my face.........yep, laughed my head off!! Laughed, laughed, laughed..............

Lolcat wisdom . . .


The 'old' button . . .

Yes yes yes, someone pressed the 'Old' button when I wasn't looking!! I am sure of it. There are some very weird changes going on in this body of mine and they are starting to freak me out. After many months of practically choking on my food when all I wanted to do was eat it and spending more time coughing than breathing, I finally gave in and took a little trip to the quack. "I haven't seen you for six years" he said. Well no, I haven't been sick!! But that nice run seems to have come to a rather sudden and crushing end. Hhmmm seems suddenly I have asthma??? WHAT THE?? Of course treatment for said ailment is one of those little inhalers morning and night, mine just happens to be purple, woohoo one of my favourite colours, this has to be good doesn't it?? Being scared witless cos I wasn't breathing properly, I religiously puffed my puffer and almost instantly the coughing dissipated. Well done I thought, we will knock this over no worries.

A few months in and all of a sudden I'm trying to squish into clothing that always had an inch or two spare to flex with?? WHAT THE again. Of course all medications come with a twenty foot blurb to read about possible side effects etc, I didn't read it, who ever does?? Back I went to the twenty foot blurb and was absolutely horrified to learn I was sucking steroids every day which not only make you 'larger than life' literally, your hair falls out at a rapid rate and it also destroys your immune system (plus some other rather delicate issues which I won't go into!!). Well...... that explains why I seem to have a handful of hair in my comb everyday and why it's looking rather sparse all of a sudden!!
 
After traversing through all the miserable emotions my plight threw up in my face, I have finally decided it is time to buckle the Amazon in and act defiantly (of course the art of breathing is a rather important aspect of living, but there has to be a better way!!) So, I have spent the evening searching the net for all possible remedies for asthma and have actually come across some nice essential oil combinations which help to reduce inflammation and improve breathing. A new haircut might also be on the agenda, plus I probably need to rack up a few more k's on the treadmill (don't we just hate that!!) Even if nothing else happens, my house will smell divine!!

Quote of the day . . .our deepest fear

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
This inspiring quote by Marianne Williamson is from her book, A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of a Course in Miracles, Harper Collins, 1992.

On the road again!!

The start of 2011 didn't quite pan out like I thought it would (silly me, what was I thinking??). It has been a little tough with my soul mate 6,000ks below us on the Antarctic ice shelf. Being the fiercely independent Amazon woman that I am, I had imagined I would breeze through this 'little' separation, when really I should have been preparing myself for the slap in the face the Universe likes to dish out just so we don't get too comfortable. Did I say it has been tough?? Actually I have pretty much been a dribbling mess (so much for the Amazon, boy will she get a lecture the next time I see her??).

In the cold light of day I have been surveying my surroundings and with my 'security blanket' stripped from me, the landscape appears somewhat 'different'. I should have learnt by now that almost nothing is truly as it appears and whilst I have been grappling with what is illusion and what is not, I have found myself to be in a very vulnerable state, not something I am comfortable with at all!! But sometimes everything has to be removed to find a clear pathway.

As I was starting to wonder if I would ever come out from beneath the crippling intensity of the truths revealing themselves to me, I felt a shift in the Universal energies and I felt my soul breathe a huge sigh of relief, "Ahh, we are on the road again!!" The Amazon has returned with a renewed sense of strength, a purpose in her heart and a plan.

The underlying current of 2011 is about just that, finding our selves and our purpose within the constant craziness going on all around us. Listen well as you move forward into this year and the Universe will surround you with all you need. I don't think it will be an easy year but in terms of our individual and Universal growth it will be huge . . . . . . . .

miss you mum

Cosmic Weather Report by Mark Borax

"The revolution of our time begins the moment you realize you're here to find your deepest truth and follow it to the ends of the earth regardless of what it asks of you. The revolution begins the moment you realize you're not here to piss away another incarnation, but seize the moment to make your life count for something besides paying the bills and keeping your car clean. The revolution begins when you take the high truths of spirit and build a life around them here on earth."


"As Uranus pushes into Aries the next seven years we're being asked to push through the crazy dilemmas of our time and find a clear path through deception that opens new territory. With Neptune in Pisces for fifteen years, our hearts are being wrenched to find a magical affinity with our world, with our time, knowing that even the strangest times have an inner reason to be, a buried treasure within. As the lies and distortions sweep mass consciousness, we're being asked to join growing legions of people, across the planet, who, despite the insanity of their leaders, are rising out of the muck of the past to find something real."



Who are you really?  What are you here to do? 
How much longer are you going to wait? 

The preceding passages are an excerpt from Mark's monthly Cosmic Weather Report (to read the full report click the link below). Mark created Soul Level Astrology in 1987, a method which uses your astrological birth chart to identify your core nature, or soul, which is the deepest part of you. Your soul force permeates every cell of your body. It was there before you were born and continues after you die. It came from eternity for some purpose only you can achieve. He investigates this soul-level purpose when he looks at your birth chart.


Being sensitive to the ebb and flow of the Cosmic tide, I knew last year that 2011 was going to be a very BIG year. My husband was going away for it's entirety for a start!! Movement like this usually signals the powers that be have a 'plan'. Or in other words, I have to 'get with the plan'. This invoked a mini freak out on my part as my mind darted in and out of every random possibility the Universe could throw at me. But life goes on and whilst trying to function on a normal level I purchased a bundle of books from overseas for the website and myself with the thought of finding some comfort within at least one of them. 

I was drawn to Mark's 2012 Crossing the Bridge to the Future and the Universe didn't let me down, within this book were a couple of keys, a light switched on and I knew I needed to speak with this man!! In September I had my Soul Level Astrology reading, not one to do things by halves I had a triple session which delved deeply into the essence of my core being. This was possibly one of the best things I have ever done for myself, there was an instant shift and the turbulence within settled to a minimal level. I felt inspired and renewed, ready to move into whatever 2011 brought with it.
