True Love is… To truly LOVE yourself

truelove copy

It is not as harsh as it has been because IAM a bit more used to not always looking so ‘perfect’ (he he, ha ha…) and I have released and transformed lots of things since 2 years ago when I went through quite an intense time with myself… I’ve copied here below what I wrote because it is good to remember.

My friend Cindy at blue butterflies has a retro challenge that inspired me to bring back some dirty washing and see if its clean yet…

Well it’s nearly clean and I’m proud of myself for continuing to work on myself… for me the answer is True Love and loving yourself truly, no matter what. When IAM in this position of loving myself I no longer need to look outside of myself for answers or recognition and permission to just be myself however IAM in each moment.

Thank you Cindy, IAM having my Dad here for a week and going to enjoy doing tourist things… in between my 30 day blogging challenge that I have began as part of my PR campaign for the launch of my book… Your Magnificent Self… A Journey to Freedom…

Your Magnificent Self... A Journey to Freedom

————————————————————————————————-
Written April 2013..

IAM LOVE…This last month has been really heavy for me… I feel the energies have intensified so much these past few weeks, vibrating at a very fast and high frequency… not only coming from the cosmos but also from the centre of the earth… like hot flames burning away all my yesterdays that no longer support me… my old ways, memories, habits, addictions, patterns etc… until IAM left with only a peaceful and solid sense of pure love, joy and light… As I wrote in a recent blog post, it’s taken a toll on my face.. there is no getting away from it… and it continues to flake, peeling all the layers of yesterday off… I feel like a snake shredding its skin.. going into another phase in life… So I do know it’s important for me to stay relaxed and peaceful and focus on healing and balancing my body consciousness. (body, mind and spirit)..

Last friday/saturday i ‘went into’ drama and started feeling sorry for myself, being the poor me and victim… that nothing works etc… and what happened… my face followed my thoughts and beliefs and I took a step back in my healing and my face became inflamed again… It was a way of reminding myself that I was not truly loving myself, not trusting myself to heal and knowing that IAM a magnificent light being in a physical body rebalancing my body consciousness… I knew I had to stay away from outside stress, to drink plenty of water, eat a little of good things I liked and to leave off the wine for a while.

So I thank myself for this test, although I failed, I will remember to focus on wholeness, on my truth, on my magnificence… instead of buying into the fear and victimhood…

I know that IAM not the only one going through this great shift of energy… we are all being confronted with our fears and having the chance now to release them and integrate fully with our soul, our IAM presence, our magnificent self… No-one else can help us, each one of us has our own unique wisdom inside of us to guide us home… guide us to be who we truly are… DivineHuman Beings…

It is up to ourself to make sure that our body, mind and spirit is healthy and vibrant so that we can totally care for our self first, our home, our relationship, our family and business… We have to stand up for ourself, find time to recharge our batteries, write everything down (because everyones memory is being rewired right now) so we remember everything important and make sure that we eat well, drink well and sleep well… We are the one that is responsible for everything in our life, everything that happens… and are the only one who can HELP OURSELF…

Know that YOU are made up of LOVE itself… no more searching… everything is right under your nose… Now is the time to allow yourself to shine, to sleep, to set boundaries at home and work… to say NO when things don’t work for you at that moment… to take charge of yourself, your life by focusing on creating your desires and be in JOY…

25 years of LOVE and CANCUN… Mexico… Here we are again…

IMG_2118

It felt as if Tom and I had stepped into a time warp… back to the early 90’s…

A wonderful breeze of hot mexican air… friendly smiling deep tanned ‘small folk’… palm trees swaying in a beautiful blue sky… stretches of ultra white glistening sand and turquoise seas… ocean waves lapping on the land, a heavenly feeling of Gaia’s gentle caress that touches the depth of your heart and soul that is connected to ALL… laughter and screams of joy from children and young adults as they jump the waves, splash in the pool and dance to the deep music vibrations in the local night clubs… lying on the beach soaking up the sun, drifting off to a place of enchantment and silence… resting the body and mind of the busyness of ‘normal’ life and allowing one’s spirit to come into the foreground and ignite inspiration and passion with a feeling of peace swaying in the background…

IMG_2085

“What was it that brought us here year after year for 25 years… to enjoy this small piece of the world”… Tom asked…

IMG_2112

This time warp that we had both slipped back into… so easily… connected us to the deep feeling, the joy and passion of life… that had, IAM SURE… spurred us on to settle in Mazarron Country Club 7 years ago… another unspoilt, tranquil and peaceful environment where we allowed ourself’s to connect deeply with ALL OF OURSELF… body, mind and spirit… we had learned to be at peace, to refuel, recharge and experience the nothingness in life… wherever we were…

IMG_2107

But today… 7 years later… following the yearning of our hearts… we are back for a well deserved ‘Time Out’ before we move to our new home in Benalmadena, Costa del Sol…  There are more tall buildings, more people, traffic, shops, restaurants and hotels… but nothing could cover up the peaceful hum, the natural colours and shapes of Gaia’s presence here… Long ago we had both connected with the natural vibration of LOVE that is here… that brought us to the core of ourself… and will always remain special to us… Over the last 25 years we’ve shared this paradise with our family and friends… We joined together and committed ourself’s to each other, for better and worse here on our beach… on our rock…

Our Rock… We will respect and honour each other for eternity…

IMG_2117We feel truly home… a place to celebrate our love for ourself and each other… 25 years.. quite a milestone… Enjoy the photos… and here’s to new inspiration for the creation of another post from CANCUN, Mexico… Hasta Luego Amigo/a’s…

A quote that is engraved on a building here on the beach that we have always resonated with…  ‘Life is lost in dreaming… Dreaming is lost in Becoming…’  So let us live mindfully in each moment of our life and allow ourself to be our grandest heart and soul’s dream ever…

Taking Care of Self and being Happy…

Happiness is in your hands...

Early this morning I took my daily conscious deep breaths and was thankful for another wonderful day in which to enjoy… before springing out of bed, putting on my shorts and top and went for my daily 1/2 hour walk (too hot for my normal gentle jogging).  On my return, after a delicious breakfast and 2 cups of ‘english tea’, I opened up my book of ‘laughter quotes’ for a morning giggle… I started collecting the quotes earlier this year when I realised that I was getting too serious…   and needed to laugh more on a daily basis… Continue reading

Let’s not compromise ourself…

compromising

When we compromise our own truth we walk in murky waters…

To meet another half way, understanding our different perceptions is a
little different than stepping away from our own core truth in search
of recognition, approval or power…

If you need help… ask, be clear about your situation and if you are
confused say so…
  Take it easy on yourself…

A WOMAN Awakens…

IMG_3087

Something inside me stirred, it had been a long and arduous road…
experiencing the calm, the drive, the dark, the light, the pain, the love, the sadness and the peace…

And like a bolt of thunder and strike of lightning, I brought myself to this moment, and knew with all my being…
I was the dance, the union and coming together of the two extremes…

In each moment I could choose to celebrate, to cooperate and playfully create a life so longed for…
something inside me stirred, the energies had found each other and wonder exploded…

I AM both the inner and outer, the inspiration and creator, the nurturer and builder…
Will you join me in your new awakened state to follow your dreams, create your desires and live together in a peaceful and loving earth.. right here…NOW…

Summer Solstice 2013

Today is the start of a wonderful long Mid Summer Weekend in celebration of the sun’s light and to enjoy our connection with ONENESS… (during the Solstice the veils between the different realities/multi-dimensions are very thin, where the heavens and earth are the closest, heightening our psychic power enabling us to tap into our DIVINENESS for a new experience…)

The next four days is a wonderful opportunity for everyone to join together energetically and create a global love wave… illuminating our heart energy out into the cosmos… The more space that LOVE fills helps to embrace any mischievous and fear-mongering energy (both inside and outside the earth plane), that has the intention of slowing us down from moving on from our dualistic consciousness into unity consciousness…  Know that LOVE will always prevail… (http://www.alunajoy.com/2013-june-gotlove.html) Continue reading

The Wisdom of Golf… at Desert Springs, Almanzora, Spain

IMG_1183 IMG_1187

24 years ago today Tom and I got together… a great reason to celebrate a few days in a lovely golf resort, Desert Springs, Almanzora, Spain…  The weather is warm but a little overcast, never mind… Tom and I have an early afternoon start time today to enjoy a nice game of golf and enjoy the beautiful scenery here in Almanzora… We’ve been here before, but I didn’t remember just how beautiful it was.. Desert Springs, like the name reveals is a golf course right in the middle of Mediterranean desert land… It is nature at its very best… wild, colourful, prickly and raw…

Happiness Is…

Happiness is....

Happiness Is…

*Breathing consciously in the present moment… rather than thinking about the past or future

*Trusting your body consciousness completely… rather than doubting yourself

*Knowing you are magnificent and authentically powerful… rather than a nobody struggling to become somebody

*Knowing that you hold all your own answers… rather than relying on the knowledge of others

*Feeling the passion and excitement flowing through your body consciousness… rather than feeling numb

*Choosing to LOVE yourself first and radiate LOVE out to others… rather than believing you are not worthy of love

*Choosing to create your reality and destiny… rather than being a victim of life
