A Hero’s Guidepost – Stay Open to Mystery!!


Some more brilliant words from Lissa Rankin as I work my way through her excellent book the Anatomy of A Calling: The Website.

Its easy to think we can understand the world and how it works. But then if things happen that we can’t explain, it can lead to discomfort, disorientation and even denial. When something happens that disrupts your story of how the world works, be curious. Don’t worry too much about explaining your experience. The need to know arises from the mind, which can’t begin to fathom what your heart knows is possible. What if “How”and “Why” were not the most important questions, the ones that actually help us live?. When you’re willing to stop being an expert on life, you open yourself to magic. You let life be the teacher and humble yourself as the perpetual student. That’s when the real fun begins.”

So those signs you receive in your life, do you take notice of them or do you know that it just wouldn’t work out. Lets look at some signs sayings, there are some great ones:

signs1

1. The best job I ever had in my career as editor of a national Community Development journal called Community Quarterly would have never happened if I had ignored the poorly handwritten flier – volunteers wanted in St Kilda that day in the library.

signs2

2. This is why The Universe has your Back by Gabby Bernstein is another of my favourite books, great training in listening for the signs, she also does a quote card pack: Manifesto.

signs3

3. A place definitely not to look is in your head, when you feel that energy flowing through your body, follow it to its source.

signs4

4. The cat is about to head off and find Aladdin’s Caves: Follow the Sun.

signs5

5. You don’t only get one on life. My friend Thea writes a daily, 365 days a year book. Don’t hold on when you are meant to let go.

signs6

6. We have all heard the classic joke about the man ignoring God’s messages. It may not always make sense, but we all know when our intuition is speaking to us loud and clear. Stop ignoring it: Intuition.

signs7

7. A life without borders, what level of trust would that take where we could follow each and every sign.

signs8

8. I have a friend who when she travels chooses to go the road less travelled, to follow the crooked roads. She sometimes gets lost, but  her adventures are of legend: True Colours.

signs10

9. This is one sign we do not want in our relationships, practice telling your disempowered and empowered sacred love stories to each other.

signs11

10. Replace tequila with your favourite drink, mines water: Tequila.

signs12

11. I think this signs for me.

signs13

12. I think the message here is to not give the wrong signs and actions out: Hit the Road Jack.

signs14

13. Words do not get results, words with actions that follow do.

signs16

14. And don’t forget to listen to the ones of Self-Love: That’s why You’re beautiful.

signs15

15. And these are probably the most powerful signs we receive. I call it the person you would most like to ravish in your life. Thats my sacred love story about these signs in our life.

What mysteries have happened in your life, those people you thought about who SMS’d you a minute later. That dream you had years ago about the place you are now in and you  know that you have been there before, these are your signs to listen too and follow.

Namaste until next time, my dear friends.

Note to Self, Let Shit Go!!


This is a beautiful sentence for the life altering book The Anatomy of a Calling: A Doctor’s Journey from the Head to the Heart and A Prescription for Finding your Life’s Purpose: It’s tricky to learn how to inhabit your brilliance- to let our lights shine unimpeded-without mistakenly letting it fuel the ego.

On the other hand what spiritual teacher and author Marianne Williamson writes in her book A Return to Love is true:

” 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 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.”

So how has the planet related to inhabiting our brilliance, let’s have a wee peek:

brill1

1. If you have a belief in that everything is possible the chances you will come up with something new is higher.

brill2

2. Because there is a brand new interpretation of it existing that did not before you took on the challenge: Amazing Grace.

  1. (of light or colour) very bright.
    “brilliant sunshine illuminated the scene”
    synonyms: brightshiningblazingdazzlinglightMore

     
     
       

     

brill4

4. I’ve got a soul kind of feeling, moving to the beat: Soul Kinda.

brill5

5. Welcome to the human experience, that’s where life really lives.

brill6

6. Some brilliant words from JFK about humanity: Teardrops.

brill7

7. I hope they say Love and Respect for All, Everybody Included when they are talking about me.

brill8

8. Aren’t we always feeling a little bit more brilliant on a sunny day: Ain’t Nobody.

brill9

9. Is your life your favourite movie, what’s its name?

brill10

brill11

11. From one of the brilliant ones.

brill12

12. Not in it’s flag, it’s army, it’s leaders, simply it’s people: Our House.

brill13

13. The oldest comment, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe lived from 1749 to 1832, a great innings for the time. Brilliance does not mean that you will always spend time with others.

brill14

14. Just couldn’t leave Oprah out, proof in the pudding: Sweet Dreams.

brill15

15. Finally a quiz, one of the most brilliant human beings ever, who is he?

The key is to recognise that spiritual gifts , divine downloads, miracles, magic and brilliance are all the result of Consciousness streaming through us. Our egos don’t get to claim credit for any of it. But it is our responsibility to avoid blocking its expression through us,

Namaste until next time, my dear friends

I am willing to witness my Fear!!


How do you experience Miracles? The more you choose gratitude, forgiveness and love, the more miracles you expect to experience in your life. A miracle can be a moment when you give up a resentment you have held on to with a sibling for years and years, or losing that jib free you up to follow your true calling. It’s like choosing fear over love, each time you do this you have performed a miracle for all the people involved.

How has society defined a miracle over time, here is the definition currently used

Miracle:
  1. an extraordinary and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore attributed to a divine agency.
    “the miracle of rising from the grave”
    synonyms: supernatural phenomenon, mysteryprodigysign

    “his first miracle was to turn water into wine”
    • a remarkable event or development that brings very welcome consequences.
      “it was a miracle that more people hadn’t been killed”
    • an exceptional product or achievement, or an outstanding example of something.
      “a machine which was a miracle of design”
      synonyms: wondermarvelsensationphenomenon, astonishing feat, amazing achievement

      “Germany’s economic miracle”

       

    So what have people said over time about it, let’s have a look:

    miracle1

    1. The first one sounds like the Just Do It mentality, the latter that you could live an extraordinary life, go Albert.

    miracle2

    2. Mum Coach Mia Redrick puts it down to thoughts creating miracles. I think it also required body activation: You Sexy Thing.

    miracle2

    3. You are nearly there, and baby it’s getting tough in the bleachers.

    miracle3

    4. Another way of saying everything is a miracle or a gift from the curly haired wise man: Don’t Wait.

    miracle5

    5. This type of love seems to be a miracle these days. Inhale it in!!

    miracle6

    6. The possibility of magnificence, awaken your spirit to this and the miracle will flow in: So Much Magnificence.

    miracle7

    7. Where is your change room? In your head or your heart.

    miracle8

    8. Drink it in, Yes, this is true. So you have had at least one miracle occur in your life. Let’s get out there and create some others: Great Balls of Fire.

    miracle9

    9. They say the way to enlightenment is to give up everything you know. This then allows for possibility to enter it.

    miracle10

    10. Looking up who Rebecca West was I just had to include this quotes as well: People call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat or a prostitute.: Hard out Here.

    miracle11

    11. Make this a real part of your day.

    miracle12

    12. Looking for your miracles, remember to focus on your why as well: Start with Why.

    miracle13

    13. I just loved this images, it needs no words to be miraculous.

    miracle14

    14. The worlds greatest miracle: the birth of our offspring. 

    miracle15

    15. They say there is an experiment that can be done that demonstrates people who have taken the same way to work for years do not notice over 50 percent of what they pass by. Time to see the miracles.

    Miracles are held to be humongous, and that is why people do not declare their lives as being so. I think it time to take on From Little Things, Big Things Grow.

    Namaste until next time, my dear friends.

You can Play a Shoestring if you’re Sincere!!


I’m reading s great book called The Big Little Book of Resilience by Matthew Johnstone at the moment. Matthew wrote and illustrated it. It is subtitled How to Bounce back from adversity and lead a fulfilling Life. Each page has a little bit of wisdom with a supportive image.

Accepting what we can and cannot change is one of the most important aspects of understanding resilience. it’s learning to work with and grow what’s right in our lives while accepting, but not putting all our energy into , what’s not.

So bringing sincerity into our lives allows us to see what are our rights and what will empower us. Lets have a look at what people have said about rights over the years:

right1

1. Standing up for your rights means that you do not have to offend or please others all the time, It gives you time to consider them.

right2

2. This brave young woman has raised the voices of half the world’s population: Roar.

right3

3. You have the right to…. it’s up to you, whatever you listen to in your mind takes hold.

right4

4. I have difficulty with one of these, guess which one: Same Love.

right5

5. Our voices are given to us for a reason, It’s you time to use it.

right6

6. I say this to you all, you can do it, you rock: I will Survive.

right7

7. As a race, we have a fair way to go with this one.

right8

8. This year, I became a tutor to three Chinese mothers. Before I did this I didn’t realize who little I know about other cultures on the planet and how much my group of friends is from the one culture: Where is The Love.

right9

9. Mainstream media, Whilst in the hospital with my mum I unfortunately had to view it. The word puerile and the meaning of this question come to mind.

right10

10. As it say above, be a voice. This period of time in raising your your children cannot be taken back without some serious therapy bills if you stuff it up: Teach Your Children Well. 

right11

11. How do millions of people turn into killers during the time of war. Often they were neighbors who had lived next to each other peacefully for years and years. The above sentence speaks very loudly.

right12

12. The federal government in my home country, Australia seem to have forgotten this, they are about to implement a national Grade 1 grammar test: Better Place.

right13

13. This haunting image could not let me not include it.

right14

14. I spent many months contemplating this during my dark times. It was not Erin but Ruth and Jann and Hugo who said this to me, not in such dramatic style, but I heard it: Stay.

right15

15. Perhaps best known for the remark in a letter to an Anglican bishop, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men. Donald Trump, or Nelson Mandela who will be remembered in the year 3030?

So I am imploring you to realize that you have rights and you have a voice. It’s our time, Its up to Us, Because we Can.

Namaste, until next time, my dear friends.

Energy is Everything!!


“In every moment the universe is conspiring to bring me toward Right-Minded Thinking and the energy of Love” – Gabby Bernstein.

Love, it has its inner energy source that shines on you. How do you let it shine on your community, is it a hard slog or does it spread beyond all boundaries? If you spread love you attract people, things and situations that match the energy  you are putting out. As you improve yourself and raise your vibration, the more you will receive things that are  beneficial to your well-being.

What wisdom has the energy of love drawn to it over time, let’s have a look:

energ1

 

1Sister Corita, nun, activist and artist. Her artwork, with its messages of love and peace, was particularly popular during the social upheavals of the 1960s and 1970s. As both a nun and a woman making art in the twentieth century, she was in many ways cast to the margins of the different movements she was a part of.

energ2

2. Have you ever seen one of your friends and thought, they’re beaming, they must be in Love. Works best when you include yourself: Shine on Me.

energ3

3. I don’t know how many times I have watched Jim Carrey’s great talk on this exact subject. Have a look – Fear or Love.

energ4

4. Our second Catholic entry. Pierre was pilloried by the Catholic church and made to leave his teaching position and sign a statement withdrawing his controversial statement regarding Original sin. He believed in the power of Love like that other fellow Jesus did: Across the Universe.

energ5

5. Love life, not things.

energ6

6. You notice when people emanating love enter a room, they light it up: When you walk in the Room.

energ7

7. The big man, just say I: used to raise your energy level every few minutes. Love is the ultimate form of it.

energ8

8. Starseed, that’s what they say we all are at the source: Starman.

energ9

9. I love, Love is the tool, so Yummy.

energ10

10. Have you seen the picture of Sai Baba pouring diamonds out of his hands, here it is: Sai Baba.

energ11

11. Inside itself we create the energy of Love.

energ12

12. Time to get infected by the power of Love: The Power of Love.

energ13

13. Its the glue that sticks it all together. L-O-V-E.

energ14

14. Another way of saying it that is universally recognised, is simply Namaste: Mahamantra.

energ15

15. Which 750,000 will you counterbalance, Thankyou.

When we lean towards love, we are led.

Namaste until next time, my dear friends.

“My Energy Creates My Reality. What I Focus On Is What I Will Manifest” 

One of Gabbi Bernsteins excellent The Universe has my Back 52 card deck. What creates your reality. It is said a truly strong person does not need the approval of others anymore than a lion needs the approval of sheep. If you spend your life creating your reality by seeking other people’s approval  before you take action you minimize what you are likely to achieve in your life. It’s fine to form partnerships with others to achieve your goals and dreams but do not hand the manifestation over to them.

There have been many different realities over our history, what did people have to say about it:

reality1

1. There are 7 billions opinions on earth even though mainstream media is trying to change this. Remember the more you love your decisions, the  less you need others to love them.

reality 2

2. Sometime reality hammers us, it is in these moments that relating to your dreams becomes very important. getting the negativity out of your life  at these moments is essential: Expectations versus Reality.

reality 3

3. The world’s greatest philosopher Ms. Unknown reminds us that we are the creators of our own unique canvas. Will yours hang in the Louvre or on the backdoor of your toilet?

reality 4

4. Parents are often surprised when their children start dropping the F bomb, words have power: That Power.

reality 5

5. Wagner’s life was characterised by political exile, turbulent love affairs, poverty and repeated flight from his creditors. His controversial writings on music, drama and politics have attracted extensive comment, notably, since the late 20th century, where they express antisemitic sentiments. The effect of his ideas can be traced in many of the arts throughout the 20th century; his influence spread beyond composition into conducting, philosophy, literature, the visual arts and theatre.

reality 6

6. From the author of Think and Grow Rich, which is amongst the top ten selling self help books of all time come some sage advice at to what your thoughts are capable of: Wild Thoughts.

reality 7

7. One of my top ten, Wayne Dyer, the full quote is you create your thoughts, your thoughts create your intentions and your intentions create your reality.

reality8

8. Not only a bugger for the bottle, Aristotle, way back in the Third Century B.C. knew the importance of knowledge and education in creating our realities; Pretty Hurts.

reality 9

9. Every day in every way, that’s how powerful our skill of creating our reality is.

reality10

10. Ma Jaya Sati Bhagavati founded the Kashi Ashram, “an international interfaith community based on kindness, compassion and service”, in Florida in 1976. With this background she was obviously trying to affect the religious reality of the day that religions are separate from each other, more the one god theory: Ordinary Day.

reality 10

11. It must have taken some pretty powerful imagining to sit under the Bodhi Tree and reach enlightenment.

reality 12

12. How much energy do we waste regretting things that have happened in our past lives. It deprives us of the freshness we need to build the new structures we require to move forward: Future/Past.

reality 13

13. Then reality can be confusing. I am a one on one English tutor and you should see some of the looks my students give me when I try and explain words that are spelt the same and mean entirely different things.

reality 14

14. Known for her powerfully insightful quotes and poetry Anita Krizzan beseeches us to listen well when our reality begins to cause us pain: Hurt. 

reality 15

15. The journey to fulfilling your dream has a few requirements, this is one of them.

“Be yourself. If you water down to please people or to fit in or to not offend anyone, you lose the power, the passion, the freedom and the joy of being uniquely you, It’s much easier to love yourself when you are being yourself. – Dan Coppersmith

Welcome to Reality.

Namaste until next time, my dear friends.

Note to Self : Stop Expecting!!


” The reason many people in our society are miserable, sick , and highly stresses is because of an unhealthy attachment to things they have no control over.” – Steve Maraboli

Luminita Saviuc states that in every instance of transformation, the transformative insight was always one that led her to letting go , surrendering and giving up, in the best sense possible. And perhaps out of all the self-sabotaging habits of thought and behaviour, the one that’s far too common is our desire to control aspects of our reality that are actually beyond our control.

I can speak from experience that staying in control can be costly, as I have experienced several mental health periods in my life which I fought seeking the help that I needed to restore the balance in my life.

So how do we relate to control in our society. let’s take a peek:

control1

1. This reminds me of the Activation work where we get in touch with our Essence in life I do with my mentor Arion Light: Link to the Source.

 

2. The history of  psychedelics dates back tens of thousands of years, it is only in the past 100 years that there has been scientific and counterculture interest in these substances. They were originally used to obtain transcendental experiences: Purple Haze.

control 3

3. This is one form of control it would be a great thing to let go of, refusing to get back up.

control 4

4. The soul is harder to hear when you are controlling what enters your heart: Keeping Your Head UP.

control 5

5. To achieve this those mental controls of fear and anxiety must go.

control 6

6. When the controls are gone, we can sing relax don’t do it: Frankie sings it.

control 7

7. And yet, there are profoundly powerful acts of control that we need in our life.

control 8

8. We often lose control when we just don’t want to wait anymore, and say that’s enough. Remember that what people talk about on their death beds is what they regret usually, not what they celebrate: No Regrets.

control 9

9. What would our lives be like if we were so in control that we were incapable of giving back?

control 10

10. Sarah Dessen is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of over a dozen novels for teens, which have received numerous awards and rave reviews. Her books have been published in over thirty countries and have sold millions of copies worldwide: You’re the one that I Want.

control 11

11. Ah, the women who introduced the term The Work to the world. Another pearl of wisdom: Let Life live you – It does anyway.

control 12

12. Hard to drive your car of dreams with four flat tires, isn’t it.: Flat Tire.

control 13

13. Or even not knowing what you don’t know!!

control 14

14. A way to make sure that people stop relating to you from a position of power: Stop Complaining.

control 15

15. A possibility if we set our controls for the heart of the sun.

” So don’t be frightened, dear friend, if a sadness confronts you larger than you have ever known, casting its shadow all over you do. You must think that something is happening within you, and remember that life has not forgotten you; it holds you in its hand and will not let you fall. Why would you want to exclude from your life any uneasiness, any pain, any depression, since you don’t know what work they are accomplishing within you? – Rainer Maria Rilke

Namaste until next time, my dear friends
