Life is a daring Adventure…

Happiness can come in a single moment. 
And in a single moment it can go again. But a single moment does not create it. 
Happiness is created through countless choices made and then made again throughout a lifetime. 
You are its host as well as its guest. 

You give it form, shape, individuality, texture, tone. 
And what it allows you to give can change your world. Happiness can be stillness. 
But it isn’t still. 

It wraps, enchants, heals, consoles, soothes, delights, calms, inspires and connects. 
It is on your face and in your body. It is in your life and being.

STEPHANIE DOWRICK, Choosing Happiness

TODAY:

Every morning was a cheerful invitation to make my life of equal simplicity,

and I may say innocence, with nature Herself.

Henry David Thoreau

Its almost dawn…there is soft rain falling, its so gentle, lightly cleansing my world. I feel a sacred silence. The world is asleep around me…peace. The last little snail, trekking across the wall on its way back home. My herbs are fragrant, the air clean. I feel dreamy still, mellow, gentle, soft happiness enfolds me…its time for tea…and perhaps the perfect hour to share a few words with you.

IN ONE WORD: Precious

COLOUR OF THE DAY: Pale Green

HOW I FEEL:

‘The silence was enchanting.

Infinite space seemed to enter it,

and my spirit, alone with the stars,

seemed capable of any adventure.’
W. Somerset Maughan

I am quietly happy, I feel more rested and alive! My body settled and energised. After several challenging months, with health issues and strange symptoms to deal with, I am beginning to feel more in my body and whole again. Life has settled and resumed balance with an uplifting vibration…I feel revitalised!

PHYSICALLY: Harmonising, pacing myself. Sleep is deep, yet erratic…sleepy eyes, often scratchy and tired…hot and cold during the night.

INSIGHTS:

“Find a point of stillness in the balance of all things

between the breathing out and breathing in.”

Na’ama Yehuda

Many of us need to slow down our daily pace, taking time to stop and breathe consciously, to rebalance our thoughts and to  allow more time for rest. Pray often, from the heart, live with faith in quiet surrender…Forgive, love, laugh and cherish each moment…We have a long road to walk…lets do it together, with a lightness and with love.

“To be what I am.

To live the life that was set for me to live.

To voice the things that only I can voice.

To bear the blossoms that are commanded of my heart.

This is what I want, and surely, this cannot be presumptuous.”

Rainer Maria Rilke

THE COLLECTIVE:

 “The days come and go. 
If we do not use the gifts they bring, 
they say nothing and carry them silently away. 
Life is a daring adventure, meant to be experienced with love.”

Make space for your ‘next’. Embrace all that is coming towards you and accept where life is taking you…I know and understand that many are unaware of the huge changes that are happening, on every level of our lives…Yes, there are those who may feel overwhelmed by life right now too…Offer kindness, understanding, patience and compassion, even when your own needs are not understood. Allow this to be so…

When you become comfortable with uncertainty,

infinite possibilities open up in your life.

Eckhart Tolle

AFFIRMATION: “ I love and approve of myself…”

'All my life I have yearned…' Andre Breton For a period of 15 years, I was the Principle of a well-known school in South Africa, the ‘Academy of Holistic Therapies’ which over time transformed into a place of deep spiritual and personal development, known then as the ‘Centre of Creative Consciousness’. My life changed suddenly and I moved to England in 1999. Not long after my arrival my long term reIationship ended abruptly and I developed serious heart issues. What followed was a 7 year period of death and rebirth... It led me along a path of deep introspection and growth. Through this experience including 2 near death experiences, I was forced to step into a new life, eventually giving me true understanding of who I AM and a more committed path. I moved to Glastonbury, believing then that it was to discover more of what I was searching for. Instead it has been yet another level of my own unfolding and my need to go deeper within, living a quiet solitary life, each day clearing the way to finding deeper levels of awareness and truth. All this moved at an ever changing pace towards truth and change as I released the past with forgiveness - gently guiding myself through all of the many challenges to a place of deep understanding and peace… This has allowed a very rich and beautiful connection to All That Is, an ability to tap into reservoirs of knowledge and wisdom, never before accessed. My desire is to support others in their ‘Awakening’ bringing love and understanding to many lives as they remember who they are. I care deeply about our planet, the animal kingdom and all sentient Beings during this time of dramatic change and Spiritual r/evolution on Earth. During the 7 years I realised that I enjoy being a 'modern day Alchemist' with a passion for working with colour, potions, remedies, tinctures, energy and vibrations. I was guided by Spirit to create a range of high vibrational colour essences, known as the ColourKEYS System. I see these ‘jewels’ as the unfolding of a 'story' yet to be revealed…They are a wonderful tool to support and assist those seeking the true path towards their destiny. I am at the completion stages of writing my first book, which will be published early next year. It is the story my extraordinary childhood in Africa.

  1. This is a fantastic post, and so much agree with your thoughts of understanding that life is a marathon built up of our great experiences…and we need to seek and treasure said experiences. And the advice you give of “taking time to stop and breathe consciously” may be the best I’ve heard. Cheers ~
