3 minutes to connect with happiness – no matter what

... wild Mallow flowers on a bright spring day ...

A week ago I was ripped open raw and screaming inside. Then I happened upon a simple Smiling Meditation and knew I had a choice to stay in the trauma or try to shift my state. The meditation looked so simple; distressed as I was I thought it might be approachable. So I decided to give it a go ...

Beyond rotten foundations to the bedrock of abundance

... even dead twigs support fabulous lichen life ...

Here's a surprise - at least it was to me - I'm done building a business around my spiritual work. It might happen later, but for now I'm done. My telesummit business failure experience brought me into connection with depths of pain and sorrow I didn't know existed, and finally to the bedrock underneath the rotten foundations ...

... we invite you ... take a slow, long, gentle breath in ... and then slowly, gently, blow it out

please do that again ... gently, long-ly, in ... whisperingly, mistily, out

a third time ... and this time ...

I am NOT a cat and neither are you - thank heavens!

... who, and what, are you, really? Certainly not what you seem ...

Chino arrived next door a month or so back - elegant Siamese and yet humorously gangly because he's still young. After a tentative week or so he recognised the potential of our back garden ...

I've lost hope and it's WONDERFUL! Now, which way is up again?

... blurred beauty, reflections in the rain, fuzzy light in the dark ...

What happened? Who was I a couple of weeks back, to be so completely overwhelmed, fried, torqued past breaking point, then to shift, and now it's a dim memory which happened to somebody else? Where did I go? Through some turn-me-inside-out portal into an alternative reality? My brain boggles, can't grasp whatever it is I'm trying to see, like the sculptor chipping away at a huge block of stone with no idea what might be revealed ...

2 minutes of peace and connection to the Universal You

... breathe LOVE into your heart, and then release so your Universal Self can take care of it ...

Here's simple beauty and breath to shift your focus, inner and outer, towards peace. And whatever else you choose. :-)

Just ... place each image in the centre of your screen and gently, slowly, with awareness ... breathe the word into your heart, and then out of your heart. Gathering it to yourself ... and then releasing it, so the Universal You can take care of making it happen. And rest for a moment, connected with Your Allness ...

for those who choose to shine without waiting for the sun

... there is no sun (says the flower) but I have my own brightness ...

My freesias flower, regardless of the weather, no matter if there are bees to pollinate. My moods and experiences do not stop them from flowering in all their beauty and glory.

And I am reminded, I can also be truly present and splendid, in the grey dawn, or rain, or storm ...
