“Our feelings and emotions are like the tides of the ocean
but ever-changing and as unpredictable as waves.”
Dr Jeff Mullan

HOW I FEEL:
“Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson”
Firstly I want to apologise for my sudden disappearance.
I was taken by surprise when the Internet router/hub connection burnt out! One minute I was online, the next everything was dead, dead, dead…A few hours of panic followed…was it the cable, was it the phone line, was it the adapter…and so it went on. Checking and re-checking, but to no avail…Oh dear, now what! No connection at all!
Long phone calls and hanging on, listening to loud distorted music, taking deep breaths…praying for patience, I tried to be understanding, but irritation was looming…more deep breaths…
Day 2 – I vaguely remembered reading these words, long ago – “Sometimes it is best to simply surrender our own striving and pushing forward and surrender to Higher Timing and will. Don’t knock the benefits of relaxation and meditation…of stilling the mind…and of appreciation the moments between breaths…”
I listened, and I was obedient…
I dropped into my power, became more assertive about what I needed, put my message across, then surrendered. Practicalities followed. New contracts negotiated with a better deal, new exterior wiring scheduled, a new router ordered…yet to arrive.
In the past 6 days I have paced, I have pondered, I have walked, read, meditated, chatted with friends, arranged files and folders, updated my Colour Matrix stock, poured and updated Essences, whilst playing with colour and having fun too, and rest…
I thought of all my precious friends, customers, Blog readers…all of you, and have missed you as well as the opportunities you present me with…I admit too, that there were twinges of guilt…about not being there, with a real longing to connect, to share, to write to you…
Yesterday is gone and took away its tale.
Today we must live
a fresh story again
‘Nothing is ever as it seems…expect the unexpected, every day…’
No matter where we are with ourselves, these times that we are going through, call us to meet personal and collective challenges that are more difficult than anything we’ve ever been through before…
But, be in peace my friends, accept who you are and where you find yourself today, that is important.
I feel joyous today, enriched by every experience, joining you all with each step we take into a beautiful new world….
With Heartfelt Blessings…
AFFIRMATION: “Everything happens in the perfect time…”
“Right now, and in every now-moment,
you are either closing or opening.
You are either stressfully waiting for something –
more money, security, affection
or you are living from your deep heart,
opening as the entire moment,
and giving what you most deeply desire to give,
