A Christmas Present for you


These are a few of the wonderful teachings that have helped me so much on my path and made such a mighty difference in my experience of life.  We need to remind ourselves of these constantly and consistently so that we live them and grow in love.

  • Life is a precious opportunity.
  • Earth is a school – a tough one.
  • Everything is teaching us exactly what we need to learn now. The situation you see in your life as a problem and not what you want, is the best thing that could possibly happen for you.  If you accept it and take responsibility for it, rather than struggle against it, you will learn and grow.
  • Everything is a lesson, a challenge and an opportunity to grow.
  • We get off track and our lessons are teaching us to understand how we are off track so that we can get back on track – back on the path of truth.
  • The response of the awakened Soul to any problem is, Thank You. You take it on as exactly what is best for you.  This attitude has you seek solutions and expand your consciousness.
  • We are to acknowledge and learn from our mistakes – not give ourselves a hard time about them – that’s just more of the negative ego.
  • Personal power and self love and worth are the two first essential lessons for all of us to learn – they are essential to our psychological and Spiritual well being and growth.
  • This is the Age of Soul Consciousness. Mental development, developing the power of the mind, is essential on our path to Soul consciousness.
  • The ego sees separation and loneliness. The Soul sees connection and oneness.
  • The only thing we bring with us when we leave earth is our Soul’s growth.
  • Life is a precious opportunity to learn and grow – there is so much for us to discover.

More Thoughts on Responsibility  


I was talking about responsibility last newsletter – how we are not responsible for what happened to us as a child.  This is very important to understand – the adults were responsible when we were children.

However, as an adult we are responsible for freeing ourselves from old, faulty past beliefs and consciously choosing the thoughts we allow into our minds and the thoughts we don’t allow.

We are also responsible for healing old wounds.  One understanding that really helped me in healing old wounds was the realisation that I have the choice to learn from my past and forgive and heal or to stay stuck in it and keep the wound open and prevent healing.

It’s also important to understand that we are responsible only for ourselves, and, for children we may have, but we are not responsible for other adults.  We cannot take responsibility for the choices another makes.

This is a hard one for us especially when we are closely connected with the other person.

We can’t change another person we can only change ourselves but when we change ourselves we are making a difference to the whole of humanity, as we are all connected.

So much of our energy can get tied up in trying to change another person.  We can find ourselves worrying about them, wishing they would think or behave differently or see what they need to do.  We can often see so much more clearly what another person needs to do than we can see what we need to do.

Every time we get upset there is a lesson for us.  We may see it as caused by the other person and what they need to change but the lesson is ours.  It’s showing us something we need to bring up to the light and understand how it is out of alignment with the Soul in us.

We are not responsible for others but we can help them by being there for them, caring, praying for them.  Remember worry achieves nothing except energy drain.  Trusting in the strength and Soul of the other and blessing them, whenever you think of them, is very powerful.

Health and Well Being

There is so much sickness about and so much talk about it.  There are so many ads giving us gloomy predictions about health matters.  We believe in sickness and we give it a lot of energy.


I have health challenges myself and I believe health challenges are like any other challenge – they are teaching us something we need to learn.

I have been learning so much from my own health challenges.

The experience has helped me to understand very clearly that what we think, has so much power.

When I think weakness, I feel weak.  When I think strength and affirm my strength, health and power, I feel much better and have good energy.

When I say I’m tired or think tiredness, my whole body responds with tiredness.

When I think energy and vitality, I lift myself up and feel better.

Our minds have so much power and realising this will help us to change our mindset, our attitudes and beliefs, around sickness.

Then there are the physical symptoms we may experience.

Our learned reaction to symptoms is to get rid of them as quickly as possible.  This is really interesting.  We don’t think that there is anything else to do about them.  Sure aren’t they wrong, bad, in our way, a nuisance?

I am suggesting a very different possibility – that symptoms are messages telling us something is out of balance.

We need to listen to them – not get rid of them.

We need to listen to the messages the symptoms are giving us so that we can understand what in us needs healing and balancing.

A headache could be telling you that you are dehydrated and could bring your attention to the fact that you don’t drink enough water.  It could be letting you know that you are tense. If you wake up with a headache it could be telling you that you ate or drank something last night that doesn’t agree with you.  Doesn’t it make sense to try to understand what the headache is telling us so we can make the necessary changes?

It’s so different to listen to the message and to write about what it is telling you.

When we make space and listen to ourselves – to the dis-ease we are experiencing – it’s just a whole different way of going about life.

Doesn’t it make sense to try to understand the meaning of a symptom rather than to cover it up and go on living in the same old stress?

Now, we have largely accepted the idea that the way to deal with symptoms and sickness is to take medication.

Patrick Holford in his book “Food is better Medicine than Drugs” wrote about a doctor in Norway.  He set up a clinic where people could get support to change their diet and lifestyles as the way to deal with conditions such as late onset diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and such.  He has had great success and people have healed these conditions without medication.

His solution is to change diet and lifestyle.

So when we change our attitudes and beliefs around sickness, listen to symptoms and what they are telling us is out of balance and when we are prepared to make dietary and lifestyle changes, we are taking back our power to be healthy.
