Divine Message 13/08/2018 – “Listen”

Good Morning, Good Morning, Good Morning,

“Happy Monday”.

How has your weekend been? I do hope that it has been all that you desired and more, that you have gifted yourself some R&R, and the capacity to re-charge.  It is so essential to your well being.

Sometimes I don’t think we do enough of that, always rushing, here there, and everywhere.   Hardly stopping sometimes to eat, to take a break, there is only so much of this rushing around that you can do, before burn out sets in.

Today’s message ties in with these thoughts, how often do you allow yourself to be still and listen to your inner guidance, how often do you allow yourself to really quieten your racing mind, with thoughts, I got to do this, I got to do that, oh I must remember to do this, I must remember to do that.

Today’s message speaks of quieten your racing mind and allow yourself to feel reassured that all is in hand, by staying receptive to this intuitive guidance, spiritual guidance and trusting, grounding yourself, that all will be well, this can feel difficult to achieve if anxiety, worry and concern are prevalent, in your mind.  Especially if you are a person who is prone to worry, to feel that you must have everything under control.

Sometimes when things are falling apart, they are actually falling together.  How so? you may ask, because when things are falling apart, it means there is a process of elimination, the Universe is taking care of what isn’t fitting for your souls growth, and removing it, so that good things can fall together, does that make sense?

Try to quieten your racing mind filled with anxiety, concern and worry.  As I write, I too have a lot going on that is concerning, but I have been gifting myself the capacity to imagine myself as a very strong “rooted” oak tree that is standing firm, in the sway of strong winds, from Mother Nature.

I was gifted yesterday the capacity to be present in an hours meditation, and I have to say it was one of the most poignant, meditations that I have experienced, that will still present within my soul for a long time.

So today, I ask you to “Listen” to your inner guidance, to your sense of faith in you, your faith in whatever you choose to believe in, that all will be well, and if you find yourself among chaos and disorder, please remember that sometimes there needs to be a shuffling to remove what does not serve your souls individual growth.

Wishing you a beautiful Monday, in all that you do.

With Love & light, Susan xx

Another cycle ends – transformation and connecting with my feelings associated.

#It’s an inside journey#

It seems lately there is less time to write as much as I used to be able too.  I find myself feeling emotional today, as I am coming to an end of another cycle, what is it about endings that evoke so much emotion, even knowing that every ending is going to open a new doorway.  An example I can think of, is this, ending a relationship that is negative, dysfunctional and has evoked negative emotions associated, one would imagine that one would feel “Happy” and yet the feelings that arise, are feelings of loss, and then there is the cycle of emotions that give rise to grieving.  This is an example to understand.

I say goodbye this week to a role that has come to completion for 2 years, it has been an experience of both positive and negative, positive because of the connections made, the laughter, the giggles, connecting with new people, being able to be a listening ear to those that have needed it, even being a listening ear to those who have projected their anger, because of the space that they were in at the time.  The negative the demands on the physical and emotional body.  I feel it is now time to close that door and say “Goodbye and “Thank you” for the journey, the experience, the highs and the lows.  But isn’t it amazing how closing doors, brings you closer to your emotions of loss, from previous doors that you have closed, or in some cases, closed because you had no choice, because closure may not have been completely possible.

I have just finished today, my 2nd job for the week, this will end next month, it is time for a new chapter, new beginnings, and even knowing that this will usher in new growth, I cannot help but feel a tinge of emotions, like awww, it feels a little sad, it has reminded me of other losses.  You see my viewpoint is this, that in this life, this fast paced western world we are so very busy pressing on, not giving ourselves time to process our emotions, our feelings associated with whatever we may be experiencing that we can if not careful walk around like we are “dead” emotionless, unfeeling, detached from our inner core emotions, and that in my mind is not good for the Mind, Body nor the Spirit.

I understand for many a feeling person who is in touch with their emotions, can feel too intense for many who choose to lock their emotions away, detach from them, store them in a box, never to open Pandora’s box until “Spirit” or the “Universe” decide to give you a situation or scenario, whereby you have to revisit, can you imagine for a moment that had you have had the courage, foresight and strength to initially allow yourself to tap into your emotions for each given situation, circumstance or event at that moment in time, what you would have been saving yourself from re-visiting later? Its true so much we would have saved ourselves if we had the courage to deal with it “NOW”

So today, I am feeling a little full of mixed emotions as I say goodbye to one chapter this month, then another chapter next month, when for the last 3 years I have been struggling with coming to terms and accepting a real big chapter and cycle in my life that was to be my biggest challenge emotionally yet, confronting, the face of what felt like “Death” “Loss” “Rejection” and feeling unworthy.

I have worked hard to claw my way back up from the very bottomless pit of the rabbit hole, and believe you me, there are moments when there is a trigger such as a loss, or a transition, that sets me back briefly, just momentarily to remembering where I have come from and where I have been.

Today, has felt a deeply moving day emotionally, the past 4 years have been hard as I have been working on my business this business and in the moments of healing, working with depression, counselling, past life regression to look at patterns that I may have been repeating, and allowing myself to be defined by how others have chosen to treat me, and what I have allowed in that process, has been deep.  So now couple with the wisdom of a mother who has raised 3 children to adulthood, who has experienced, many deaths, many failures, many rejections, many challenges, I can honestly say that as I sit back I can actually say, Susan, you really ought to be proud of yourself.

You see the greatest Teacher that we have is not Education, is not text book theories, no ideologies, not philosophies, but simply “Life experiences” and the pain associated with such.  Along with life experiences, pain is our greatest Teacher, for in this we are confronted with our weaknesses, confronted with our strengths, with our boundaries, with what we will accept and what we won’t and we are too faced with our vulnerabilities, we are stripped away of all ego facets of our soul and character and then once the unveiling takes place, we are confronted with a fresh new childlike new beginning on which to transmute all of the learning that has been gleaned from the whole journey;

I am proud to say that I am now much more accepting, comfortable with loss and transformation than I have ever been, even allowing myself to visit the emotions associated with the changes that take place.  Today I was given some feedback on my Group that I run on Facebook, and to me it was one of my most powerful messages that I have received, for believe me in the moments that I have doubted myself, in that journey of allowing myself to be defined by what I felt was a rejection of me, and a rejection of me not being good enough, I received affirmation and confirmation that the whole ethos of my Group Spiritual Reflections & Thoughts.  The Journey that it is successful and it does make a difference, and believe you me in the moments when I doubted myself, my souls call and who I was, who I am, I nearly called the whole lot in.  I tried a few times, but was told by Facebook that the page was of value to its followers and they would not let me close it, this coupled with today’s message has indicated to me that I am a powerful, strong woman who has been to hell and back and has risen.  As in the voice of Maya Angelou, I share a symbolism of who I can identify with,

Still I Rise

Maya Angelou1928 – 2014

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops,
Weakened by my soulful cries?

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own backyard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.

Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.

My spirit got broken, but not my essence, that can never be taken away for it sits in the well of my soul and comes to my aid in real times of need.

 

“And Still I Rise” and in doing so I have learnt so much about me, and what I am capable of.  Thank you for the lessons, that have enable to me to view them in the mirror of

reflection. photo-1438762398043-ac196c2fa1e7

The Circle Of Life!

Today I had a moment to reflect and feel amazed at having 3 Adult children, I feel amazed at how quickly time flies, how it goes and the memories all role into a ball ready for moments to be recalled.

I remember each of their Births like yesterday, the feelings, the joy, the sad reflective moments, the pure joy at holding my little bundle in my arms, and how proud I feel as I stand back and think, I am so very proud of you all.

The circle of life is always present and evident in every day life, in the Seasons, the Weather, things are born and things die, life can be like this with cycles and seasons too, so too can our own journey, in the cycles and situations that we experience, and it is okay, because what I have learnt over the years is this, nothing stays the same forever, everything is temporary for the period of time it needs to be that way, until the change and evolution of growth through a situation, event or circumstance.  Sometimes we place pressure on ourselves, with that inner dialogue that takes place, I should be this, I should be that by now, but everything has its time, everything has its place, and everything has its season.

For the real tragedy of life is not death, but what we allow to die inside of us while we live.

The true testimony is Rising from life’s tragedies and still standing when you feel like you have nothing left, when you are going through it, it doesn’t feel like you can see a light at the end of the tunnel, but later on, upon reflection you can feel immensely proud of yourself for discovering you had so much inner strength to get through.

Find the joy in between life’s challenges to find a balance and you can’t go wrong.

With love & light, Susan xxx

Today’s Universe Has Your Back Message 16/04/2018

Good evening,

late today with my posting its been a full on day!

How has your day been?

Anyway Happy Monday, many blessings and I do hope that it has been productive, enjoyable and you feel that you have achieved something today.

Today’s message is about accepting “Love” from the Universe as your primary teacher.

You see when we allow ourselves to trust the Universe and its guidance and there being a sense of what you need to go through is for your greatest and highest vibration of soul growth, this is accepted then along comes the feeling of being at peace and not fighting the natural flow of life that we have to experience in order for us to be moved to the next level of soul growth.

Anxiety, depression, fear, worry are all factors that will make this process harder to be able to cope with, and a need to know, a need to be in control, but there are times in our lives that we simply cannot be in control all of the time, that I feel is a good thing, to be in control all of the time is a heavy cross to bear with pressure to conform to juggling many thoughts, emotions, feelings that arise as a result of trying to keep it together, you can lessen your stress, anxiety and low mood by learning to trust that what is meant will certainly reveal itself, and what isn’t will not manifest, there won’t be any loss, you may feel a sense of loss as a result of an expectation of an outcome, this usually perpetuates anxiety, fear and all of the feelings, emotions associated.  Whereas if you allow yourself to just first of trust yourself, then secondly trust that the Universe or whatever you aspire too, God, Buddha, Angels, Spirit, Ancestors, those that have passed, really do have a say in what is going on around you, more than you realise, there is guidance to be found even when we do not think so.  So allow yourself to TRUST.

So today’s message is beautiful in its unfolding, in its truth and it is right for you, as it has come up for a reason.

Have a blessed night, I hope that you feel rejuvenated tomorrow and focus on all the positives, stay awesome, stay you, and trust.

In love & Light, Susan xx20180416_200213.jpg

Today’s Universe Has Your Back Message 14/04/2018

Good Afternoon,

Oh may what a beautiful day, we have waited for some long awaited Sun and Vitamin D, and today’s message actually ties in with finding joy, so one can truly see that the energy is increasing and intensifying in a different way, especially today as at 3.25am the moon went into the sign of Aries, fiery, dynamic, warrior spirit.

So where are you creating your mindful moments? and how? I hope that you are, because it is all too easy to get oneself into a rut of work, home-life responsibilities and all things adult, it is important that we find time to play, today I did, I put some music on whilst I was doing some stuff at home and danced my feet off, oh how I do love to abandon my spirit to the beat of music, in particular to the beat of my own rhythm and my own soul, wanton spirit LOL, I make no apology.

So today as the moon enters the fiery sign of Aries and Sun is shining it looks like it is ushering new spring energy which is also associated with new beginnings, do take time to be creative, to allow your inner child a chance to find joy and to create special moments that uplift your mind, body and spirit.

Have a super Saturday, in love and beautiful Sunlight, Susan xxx20180414_151717.jpgimg1455829944616

Today’s Universe Has Your Back Message – 7/4/2018 – I Surrender

Good Morning all, Happy Saturday

hope that you have had a good start to the weekend thus far.  As I sit here quietly in these early hours of this morning, I shuffled my Universe Has Your Back Deck and felt drawn to the card “I Surrender”  what does this actually mean?

Do you feel that if you surrender it is a sign of weakness? I certainly don’t, over the years of experience and wisdom I certainly have come to realise when to surrender and when not too.

There is definitely something to be said for an inner sense of knowing when to surrender and when to hold on, in particular to viewing it from a perspective of what you can and cannot control, this I have found helps in making any decision.

I remember something from years ago from a meme, we fight to hold, we fight to let go, so as I sit here pondering this morning’s intuitive message this is what is coming up, where is there a need for you to let go? surrender!!

It does not mean weakness, it just simply put you are reserving your energy for where you are able to put it to best use.

There is also something to be said for when you release any form of attachment, expectation to an outcome you give it space to find its way, you free yourself up to be able to utilise the energy of trying to control something to being put to good use.

So today’s message is ” I Surrender To A Power Greater Than Me” trusting that whatever it is that you need to surrender too will either guide you to what is meant, or release you from what isn’t.

Have a great Saturday as it unfolds in it’s day.

With Love & Light, Susan xx20180407_055304.jpg
