THE DIFFERENCE…

underestimate you compare other individual

How many of us worry about certain of our features?

We look in the mirror, but are we able to talk to the face that appears there and genuinely say, ‘I love you,’ and mean it?

I know we are human, and we worry sometimes about standing out because we DO tend to be team players, we DO like to be part of the crowd and accepted by all; BUT, what really happens to the true US when we do this?

We lose ourselves, and part of us inside dies a little when we keep comparing ourself to others.

We call ourselves short.

We criticise our nose, our hair, the laugh lines that we earned, and our wrinkles amongst other things!

I love me and I wish you would love yourselves too, so, I am suggesting that it is our differences that actually make us SPECIAL! UNIQUE! And AMAZING! There is literally no-one else exactly like you…We all have different fingerprints, different DNA, different irises and so many other differences too many to mention because we are all INDIVIDUALS….thats right….we ARE supposed to be different.

So, how about just being YOURSELF today….be TRUE to what you look like, and feel like….and own it all!

You may just find that people start treating you with love and respect once you love and respect yourself.

I hope you do….I hope you have a great life…one that radiates the true essence of YOU! BE BRAVE! And next time you look in the mirror….smile….and send yourself a thought of ‘I really AM okay JUST AS I AM!’

I did this as an experiment once a day for a week, and I can attest to the fact that my life changed dramatically for the better when I just thought those thoughts and felt how okay I really was. Why don’t you try it for a week and see?

Angel hugs to All,

Barbara xxxxx

 YOU SPECIAL

What’s YOUR dream?

things want do dream go

This is so simple…yet we sometimes make it more complicated don’t we?

I can’t do this, because I have to do that first…
I cannot find time to do that….I am too busy….
I have no money to do the things I really want to do….
I feel that others deserve it more than I do…I so want to help others (Instead of myself….Hmm)….
I can’t do something for myself, everyone else needs me…
I think I would be afraid to venture out on my own….
I am certain I can’t do that today….I have much more important stuff to do…
I think that I should wait….(What for?)

Anyway, you get the picture….

We all tend to want to be the best we can, even if we lose ourselves along the way. We do for others, put them first, and forget about US! We let others tell us what we should be doing, and we happily whinge about lack of this or that, which stops us from moving forward in our lives.

Life should be about JOY! Sheer abandon! If you don’t do this even SOMETIMES, then you diminish YOU….

Please, sit, and listen to what your heart REALLY desires….not what others desire for you. (Are you living your partner’s dream?) Then, MAKE time; be DEFINITE that you DESERVE that break, that holiday, that different way of doing or being!

And remember to LOVE YOURSELF…and be gentle with you….and SMILE!

Have a stupendous joy ride today…go for a roll down the hill! Take your shoes off and feel the grass, and sing in the rain, whilst dancing in muddy puddles!

Life can be bliss….go find yours!

Angel hugs,
Barbara xxxxx

ALLOW YOURSELF THE FREEDOM OF BEING WRONG…

Sometimes life is hard. We can get set on our course, and we KNOW what we have to do to achieve it. Sometimes the way is clear. Othertimes, it is not. However, if we have a belief in ourselves, and in the course we have chosen, then we forge ahead convinced that we need to do something in a particular way, or at a particular time, or with a particular someone.

Then, if something goes wrong, we may seek to blame someone else, or something else for our failure. We did everything we could….didn’t we? Or, were we so set on THAT path, done THAT way, and we knew we could do it, that we were perhaps blinded to other possibilities?

Why couldn’t we see the signs? Were we even looking for them? Why did we fail?

Perhaps, we just need to be gentler with ourselves, and say that we were wrong. We took a wrong course of action…..or were with the wrong person….or we blew it because we should’ve done it at a particular time. Please admit that you were wrong. Failure is not defeat. It just means that you tried one way….and it did not work for you….then.

Consider this….maybe by ‘failing’ we learnt something. Perhaps we learnt we could do something differently or made better choices. Maybe, through this experience, we found we started to get an overall view, which is far better than just one view…and one path only.

Failure isn’t an option. Have you heard of this?

Of course, it IS an option. It is an experience just like all our other fallible human experiences.

We are human. We DO make mistakes. We believe we can do something and then find out we can’t. But, what we DO have is our sense of fun, humour and joy! THIS is what we should be looking at, and nurturing more. Humour can change our lives, just because when we see a so called failure with a giggle or two, it immediately brings into play more perspectives, and more insights as to what we can change or do better. We find ourselves ‘released’ from the belief system we had in place, we are released from having to do something just so, and we are now seeing more possibilities and opportunities than ever before.

Admit you were wrong, and then keep moving forward.

Admit that you had beliefs that called you short. Admit that you are fallible, just like the rest of us.

We need to question more…ask more of ourselves than assuming we have one belief about something. Expand your mind. Question and ask WHY!

When you do this, you will notice that more probabilities DO exist after all! Unquestioned belief systems just serve to keep us locked up….inside ourselves, and that’s no fun!

So, next time something occurs that knocks you for a loop, something that you believed would go well; know that when it didn’t, it’s not a reflection of you as a person, or a reflection of your choices. IT JUST IS…

Better to be ‘wrong’ than live with or work with a belief that gives you grief…over and over. Changing a ‘bad’ situation for a ‘good’ one isn’t easy and besides, WHO said that we are in a bad situation or a good one? Only the politicians and the media, and the voices in our heads. Are they the voices of reason or of your Mother or Father…? They sensationalise almost everything and we buy into it as well.

So, instead let’s remain in a state of constant awe, in love with the moment, bewildered and astonished by the grandeur of the unknown. Let’s be free. Better be a slave to a higher purpose and TRY, than just stay stuck in shock and woe. So, be free to be wrong and  love all your mistakes, errors and failures…..give them a hug, for they show you an expanded future that just may bring you joy!

Use what’s left of 2015 to build, light up, and consciously create today what will be that which you step into next year and beyond.

Be brave.

Be free…

I wish you well,
Barbara xoxoxo

Are You Drama Dancing?

reality created by default

 

abracadabra magic hand energy create

Today’s message asks you to look within to find the means of healing; creating or removing elements of life you observe need adjusting.

The Magician represents the part of you who works with the raw energy of the Universe, bending, adjusting and threading it into various forms – all of your design.

While some of you have a greater predisposition to this type of archetypal energy ALL of you have it within. This message being present today means that all people are encouraged to find their personal connection with it.

For you to understand and tune into this powerful potential you’ll need to spend the day purging and clarifying your intentions. Just so you are 100% certain that your fear self isn’t spending all your magical power creating your fears.

So while today’s message means you have the potential to create whatever you want, it suggests that you are probably using this power creating things you don’t want – unconsciously, of course.

You create. You are the one who is making it all happen….good and bad. What are you designing your life to look like? Are you creating from your place of overwhelm, exhaustion or frustration?  If you continue to talk about the drama that you don’t want in your life, you will continue to attract it. You work with the Universe every day whether you do this consciously or unconsciously. You get to decide what you create and how reality comes to you.

Take hold of that power and fine tune it to your liking, O powerful Magician.

Then you can ask yourself, “What went right today!”

Many Blessings for an extraordinary life!

Barbara xxx

Do You Have What You Want?

focus life create good people

Do you have what you want?

Are you afraid of change?

Where do your fears or lack of self-love or self-esteem actually come from?

Did someone once say something to you to make you think you were less than? Or not good enough?

All very good things to ponder on….

When we look at our lives now….are you having the time of your life? Or are you overwhelmed and drowning in all of it?

Are you super angry that others have, and you do not?

How do you feel in general? Small…large…happy…angry….resentful…or living in bliss…

Just so you know that YOU are a powerful creator. Every day, you determine the sort of day you have through what you expect, your attitude to life in general (Half cup full, or half cup empty or just blessed that you have a cup!) It is all up to you.

Whether it’s praise, love, criticism, money, time, space, power, punishment, sorrow, laughter, care, pain, or pleasure… the more you give, the more you will receive…

Read that last sentence once again….now, is there ANYTHING you would change? ANYTHING you would say or do differently? ANYTHING you need to take action on…or indeed ANYTHING at all that could be made better by a little kindness, tenderness and heart?

Your choice…. (Let’s create anew!)

I wish you well,

Blessings to All,

Barbara

Your Own Death?

give  all much heart

Your Own Death?

If one does not attach himself/herself to people and situations or desires, then never shall his heart be broken….but then…..does he/she ever truly live?

Makes you think doesn’t it.

Perhaps throughout the day, any old day, we happen upon another, and we say, ‘Hello.’ In that moment we look, we assess them, we know if they are friendly or not and whether we like them or not. Judgement of another happens in an instant.

When we choose to accept that person as is, we can relate to them and share with them on all levels. When we choose to not accept them for whatever reason or gut instinct we may’ve had at first glance, then we may avoid them or not be as friendly.

When we judge negatively, we cause separation.

When we judge positively, we create good emotions and good situations.

But rarely is life ever so cut and dried. Sometimes we may have to work with someone who we don’t really like or trust and yet to get the job done, we have to be co-operative. It feels like hard work to do this, even if it is necessary. Sometimes we get to work with those we feel at ease with and then the work takes no time at all and pleasant and productive conversations are held throughout.

Each of these situations, the positive one and the supposedly negative one are both just an experience in our lives. How we react to others is our choice. Perhaps if we become more aware that any experience is valuable to our Soul on its earthly journey, we may be able to take a step back and just see the situation for what it is rather than us judging what we think it should be.

Step out of the drama. Be accepting of others. Try to extend the love in your heart to both types of people, the negative and the positive and just see what occurs.

We actually learn so much when our lives become chaotic or crumpled even if we can’t see it at the time. Often, we end up in a whole other place because of some catastrophe and it may even be a blessing to us.

Of course, we could just go on our first judgement and stay in the negative drama of it all….and keep talking about it long after it is over as well! But, do we ever live if we don’t participate? Life means getting in there, boots and all, and giving it the best you have regardless. If you find yourself opting out of situations, relationships and even career moves because you are scared of change; then you will have died a little more inside each and every day that you chose to sit on the sidelines.

Get in the game. The game of life! Live. Love. Give of yourself – wholeheartedly. Smile….at everyone…and even break your heart now and then. It is stronger than you think…and so are you!

I’m cheering you on!

Have an awesome life….it’s time to live, and to totally astound yourself! Ooh Rah!

Blessings to All,

Barbara

YOUR LIFE HAS PURPOSE

purposeno

Your Life Has Purpose – When you examine what you believe to be impossible, you can then change your life.

So, let’s ask, ‘Who are you, and what would you like to create?’

The Universe IS your playground. You can manifest and create at will, and you can be exactly what you want in the moment. The moment for instance that you decide you want to experience joy – you experience joy.

So, clear your blocks and limits. Ask for and activate the Law of Attraction within you. Then give thanks because IT’S COMING!

Act on ANY intuition or guidance you receive, and then step forward with courage into your newly created life.

Be clear on what you want, because you are responsible for what manifests in your life each and every day!

YOU ARE THE MASTER OF YOUR LIFE!

Know that anything can happen. You can imagine anything at all for your life.

DREAM BIG!

Know also that having it ‘all’ costs the same as having nothing at all!

Any self-created current limitations in your life ARE just that – Self-Created!

Emotions and fears hold you in their grasp when you forget to listen with your heart. So, please let go and manifest instead…start by controlling your breathing and while you do this, put your tongue on the roof of your mouth. This is done whilst thinking or manifesting in order to bring in more clarity…and it works well.

The Art of Knowing – Do you really know what you want, desire and actually need?

Some things are obvious and others are not. Search within yourself for those answers you are seeking. Then, work out what drives you.

A car needs an engine to work and fuel to drive that engine as well as a spark plug to get it going.

So, go within yourself and your desire to change and find out your purpose in life even amidst your fears of doing so; examine what engine currently drives you….is it Love or Fear?

The fuel you need too; ask what is it that fuels your current engine of love, OR your current engine of fear…where does it come from? And what sparked it?

You DO know what has manifested in your life WAS your creation in the past, don’t you? SOMETHING motivated you to travel on the journey that you’ve been on up to this point and that you are currently participating in….and sometimes it can be as simple as a cruel remark from a family member or even a stranger that began to define a fear or shortcoming within you. This progresses as you grow up and now it defines your outlook or perception of what is okay or not okay or how you view yourself within….and without.

Some people like that wonderful Nun played by Kathy Najimy in the movie Sister Act were told by their parents…’That child is pure sunshine – wherever she goes, sunshine follows.’

I am not sure of the exact quote, but you get what I am trying to convey. Her life was then guided by that saying as she says, ‘I can’t help it – I’ve always been upbeat!’

So, chance sayings can be positive like this example or negative. Words and emotions have played a big part in getting us all where we currently are.

I would like to ask you something else; ‘Are you allowed to create?’ Of course you are – but, we don’t always KNOW that we can change anything and we often feel stuck in our lives.

I spoke to someone quite hysterical today over her being quite literally at an impasse in her life and her career and relationship and she could NOT see a way out. Trapped!

So, I offered her tea, hugs galore, kindness, and a few clues as to how to climb out of her personal pit of despair, and some healing.

She KNEW that what I was telling her was right – she KNEW the steps I told her to apply to help her (such as instead of telling me what you DON’T want; how about we get CLEAR about what you DO want, and focus on that instead however hard that may be to see and feel at this particular moment in time!)

I also suggested perhaps creating a vision board and being GRATEFUL for what she actually DID have.

But, she was saying that even though she KNEW what to do, she couldn’t do it – she had no strength – no support (Her back – her physical support system, was killing her she said), and she had no way out except to run away. She was also unwilling to see that she was creating this chaos around her and adding to it with fears of lack – daily.

She herself worked with others and loved helping them but now felt disempowered. I told her something simple – This is YOUR LIFE…Work with what you’ve got, from where you are. Allow yourself to change….easier said than done sometimes.

When you cook an apple pie for instance, you get all your ingredients together – the best apples and you also trim off the bits you don’t need. Then you add some sugar to sweeten it up, and some cloves perhaps for some spice. When you cook it, you know just how long to bake it (and you watch it), so that it comes out just right.

You do all of this methodically and with great care. Then you know that you and anyone else who gets a taste, enjoys that apple pie right down to the very last crumb on the plate! Yum!

Life is simple. If yours isn’t right now, know that it CAN be. Life is really about the people you meet and the things you create with them and how you react to them and situations around them and you. So, please, in order to find your Life Purpose, go out today and start CREATING the mix you need with CARE.

You’re in charge.

Life IS short.

Believe what you want so much that it has no choice but to materialise! Share your passion, and live your dream. Hope for kindness in your friends and a willingness on your behalf to RECEIVE with grace. Let that kindness IN, otherwise you may remain stuck where you are – still limited by ‘lack’ and perhaps feeling unloved, unsupported and bereft.

Tap on the centre of your chest with your fingertips while smiling in the mirror and say,

‘I choose to be the creator of my life – consciously.’

‘I choose to climb mountains I did not know I could.’

‘I choose to start doing things I love – with enthusiasm and purpose.’

‘I want to relish my life, and be surrounded by people who cheer me on rather than tear me down.’

‘I choose to be brave.’

‘I am the warrior/warrioress for ME!’

‘I feel good about myself.’

‘I choose to smile every day, and to laugh often.’

‘I decide to be happy and joyful, and thankful in every single moment.’

‘I choose an abundant, rich and fulfilling future….after all….I AM WORTH IT!’

‘I choose to make the rest of my life – the best of my life.’

‘I choose to evolve.’

‘I am me – I am who I chose to be…’

Then, tap with your fingertips on the top of your head and repeat all of this, then say one word, ‘Align.’ This, if done daily for even one week will bring miracles!

What you do now is important, and that is something you must choose in every moment, not just when you are feeling bad….because when you do have a choice, you are powerful. And when you acknowledge your power, then the past becomes less relevant and your future becomes much rosier. You are a work in progress. I know that the things that you are passionate about are your calling. So, what lights you up from the inside?

You DO make your own destiny and you DO determine your life purpose. Choose to see your world through OPTIMISTIC eyes – listen to your guidance or gut instincts – and Follow your intuition, act on it!

  • Choose to live by choice, not by chance.
  • Make changes – not excuses.
  • Be motivated – not manipulated by guilt.
  • Be useful – not used.
  • Excel – do not compete.
  • Choose self esteem – not self pity, and always listen to that quiet calm voice within.

It’s time to be happy to create your life experience differently that’s all. Every crossroad you came to had choices. You know that no-one can do this for you and yet we struggle. Please choose instead to use your wings – fire up the engine of your life and ROAR it into being….and FLY!

Remember that you can either feel sorry for yourself like my friend who couldn’t literally see the woods for the trees and said she had no support even while I was sitting in front of her offering her just that; or you can treat what has happened to you as an opportunity to grow. Would you rather keep yourself stagnant or growing and evolving and changing?

I need to take my daily dose of ‘Brave’ medicine as well, particularly when I choose to step onto a different path. Remember that you’re braver than you believe and stronger than you know and you are smarter than you think you are. Have a belief in yourself and an inner faith in yourself as well. Let down your shields of protection, and stop firing both barrels in defence at those you meet. You are okay.

Throw off your security blanket (whatever that may be, and we all have one – or two), and feel the breeze of new life coming your way.

Everything is possible. Your life HAS purpose.

The Universe is not your prison – it should be your playground. It is your turn to have fun, to create the life you want and choose instead to be happy – accept nothing less, and be excited by all the possibilities.

You are like a seed just starting to sprout. You can grow into anything magnificent. Reach up for the light from under the dark soil and grow into your full potential. Grow into such an explosion of magical life expression of a sprout that has gone wild and free!!!!

I believe you can – do you?

I want my Soul to soar – how about you?

Find your purpose, find your smile, find your bliss and give it your best shot – today!

Love and hugs,

Barbara
