Seeing the beauty in Lockdown April 2020!

Seeing the beauty in Lockdown April 2020 – is this possible?

First off, I want to say my heart goes out to all the family’s that have truly been affected by Corvid 19 virus and huge thank you to every single person out on the front line, you are all Angels in my eyes…

As April is ending, it is time to reflect on all the amazing things that have happened since going on lockdown and the not so good!

I am going to start off with Healing…

The lock down so far has allowed me to heal more, in ways I had not even realized that I still needed too. I have had time to grieve more for the loss of my Dad, that I did not even know was still needing to pour out of me!

My body has been healing too. Before the lock down I was getting messages from my feet (yes, our body speaks to us, if we listen). Was I paying attention to this? (not really) It let me see just how much pain I was in that I ignored.

The difference in my legs and feet are amazing since I have had time to realign again over this last 6 weeks.

Are you receiving any messages from your body? Any form of pain is an indicator it is time to pay attention…

Reconnecting with my own Soul speed and not the speed of what I was reacting to.

So many of us do this without even thinking. Its Yes to this Yes to that and before you know it, all you promised your self did not happen again…

Hands up I was caught up in this one, now I have come back to centre again. I am moving at my own Soul speed; it is amazing how fast I was living even though I thought I was going with the flow!

No wonder I was tired! 🙂

How about you beautiful, are you moving at your own Soul speed or are you caught up in the fast lane of life?

Creating & Igniting Joy again even during grief and the lockdown by playing with miracles and my garden. Behind my garage there was a very unloved part of the garden and to be honest I truly needed a miracle to take this on and do it by myself.
Long story short, what a transformation already its now called the miracle garden 😊 the next phase is putting lots of love into the soil preparing it for planting herbs veggies and some flowers.

This project (that I put off for 12 years) has brought me so much Joy. To start with lots of tears for my Dad. Allowing tears is so good for you and I personally do not care when they come. Just so happened a lot of them have come in April even amongst the weeding. 😊

Other areas that the Lockdown has Ignited Creativeness is writing my blogs again, creating a new home office, that I must admit I love coming to work in. (I have got over the fact it used to be my girls’ room) …

As she informed me a few days ago, Mumma if things did not work out with me and my boyfriend, next I will buy my own place… (she would) ha.

To wrap up April and this blog I can truly see the beauty in Lockdown April, even though it’s been difficult at times missing the hugs from my kids and grandkids. Its allowed time for healing on so many levels and a remembrance of what is truly matters to me. Good health being back at the top!

I would like to ask you my lovely, what has changed for you in Lockdown April, and can you see any beauty in it?

Much Love

Stepping Through Your Comfort Zone

Stepping through your comfort zone (going on London underground alone) Yikes!

 

Have you ever really wanted to do something and talked yourself right back out of it?

I used to be rather good at this, till I started to see what I was up too.

Fasten your seat belt Goddess were off too London!

A few years ago, I received a bonus invite, to a live event that my own Coach at that time was hosting in London. I knew I really wanted to go, but the thought of going on London underground by myself terrified me!

My past career as a hairstylist we used to travel for Hairdressing events in the big city, I would be with all the girls. They took care of which tube to get on and which zone to be in. I would just follow (even make jokes that if it were left to me who knows where we would land up!

Now a Life Coach, here I was with an amazing opportunity to meet with women from all over the globe (who I had been on a six-month virtual coaching programme with.) I now had the chance to meet them in person, celebrate with them, and get more help with my new Life Coaching business.

So back to my fear of London underground, which was now becoming an adventure for Goddess in the City! I reminded myself constantly of all the places I had travelled too. (alone) How much I enjoy it.

I really Let GO of all the fearful thinking that I had completely made up in my head! (funny how we do that)!

When I booked my train, I started to see myself (my future self) arriving very safely and happy. I saw myself on the tubes buying my ticket, surrounded by happy go lucky people. I asked my Angels for guidance, trusted my own Inner Goddess. From leaving Scotland, arriving at Kings Cross station it was a beautiful experience.

When I arrived at Kings Cross, I saw this guard who I felt guided to ask for help for the next part of the journey. He could not have been more helpful. He gave me the route, the line I needed to go on and told me “it was easy”… it was now time to go UNDERGROUND 🙂

I held on to that, it is easy … 

When I went to buy my ticket for the tube, I looked around at all the other people, who were simply doing what I was doing, looking for the ticket machine, sorting out change. I started to smile from the inside. It came to me; we are all just trying to get to our own “destination ” we are little humans in this under ground station. There is nothing to fear.

I had expected to be surrounded by happy go lucky people and that is exactly what I got…yes even in London’s underground. 

Before I knew it, I sat on my seat on the tube and there was a real ” happy” vibe. I am not going to lie; towards the end of my journey, I got a bit flustered and nearly got off. I started to feel anxious because I had not been paying attention to where I was (ha) lost in the moment, had I missed my stop?

I stood up to get off! Then I heard my guidance, say STAY ON! I sat back down, then I noticed a little map which lights up showing you where the tube would stop next. Yay I could see I was 3 stops away.

This happy little selfie is me when I arrived at the right zone in London, little did I know how much I had moved through my own comfort zone. It also let me see my guidance in a whole new way. Even during panic. I heard it. By moving through my own comfort zone and not falling for the insecure babble. I had the most amazing time ever.

Thankfully, I did not talk myself out of it!

PS I am off to London again in a few weeks for business and pleasure, it is time for this Goddess to get back on that train 🙂

Wisdom leads the way,we follow,one simple step at a time!

Wisdom leads the way, we follow, one simple step at a time.

You see, we always know what to do next, what we do not always do is TRUST what comes to us. Sometimes it can be so noisy in our heads that we cannot hear our wisdom whispering our guidance to us.

Paying attention to the first step on the stairs is all we need to do, keeping it quite simple. It is all in the moment, this is what gaining clarity feels like, freeing you to open to what you already know to do next.

These beautiful steps are from a Coaching retreat I attended last year in Italy.  I remember these steps; in that moment I saw that it is so easy to try to jump to the top of the stairs without ever taking the first step. There is no rush. When our minds settle down, you start to hear your own simple guidance.

Let me use this blog as example, I heard a whisper to PRINT my draft blogs. I got a good feeling when I heard this whisper. Following my guidance, the blog I was drawn to is the one you are reading right now! I got a huge surprise when I read it. I had written it months ago.

Now I understand seeing the guide in print really touched me, something about it let me see I was not trusting my next step fully. Which is for me to write and hit publish 🙂

Well, I thought if this guide has helped me, who else might it help. Bingo (ha) See how simple it is when you trust what you hear, following what comes to you one simple step at a time.

I would love to hear your thoughts, just leave me a comment below!

Lots of love

Overcoming Fear of Writing My First Blog

Overcoming fear (and a first blog)

I am doing something I have dreamed about for most of my life (writing) online. I have put it off because I like to write with “a good old-fashioned pen and paper”. Well, that is the story I have been telling myself and believing it…

When the truth is “I’ve been pretty insecure about actually writing my” first ever blog ” using my laptop, typing with one finger at a time! (ha)

Already I feel amazing my words just like with my pen are flowing through me. It is amazing how much we do get in our own way. Stopping our self’s from doing what we love because we think it is true!

What am I afraid off?  What is so scary about writing a blog and letting the whole world see it? (ha) The truth is nothing we make it all up in our imagination. The TRUTH is I am overcoming my imaginary fear, simply by writing and hitting publish.

Does that mean I will want to change it! Yes, I guarantee I will, is it word perfect, I guarantee it is not. I am not letting the fear off not going for it because of what might happen or not happen stop me.

My wisdom has brought me here and if you are reading this your wisdom has guided you here too. (thank you Wisdom) ha. As I am discovering I really can see I am going to enjoy this new part of my work

It is a great question to check in and ask yourself. Is the story I am telling myself True?

It does not matter how big or small the thing you are afraid of is. What matters is that you discover your own truth about your fearful thinking. I can share with you right now my fingers are even kind of dancing off the keyboard now in a magical way. There is no FEAR I had made it up and now feeling joyful!

Why because I am doing what I know has been in my heart my whole life and that is to write to you, whoever you are I hope my words of wisdom guide you to see the truth that is in you. This “is” a special blog IF YOUR READING IT (I hit publish) ha

If you have any thoughts on this first blog attempt, please feel free to comment below.

Love & Magic
