My Dear Friends,

The image was very clear in my Third Eye during my meditation a week or so ago ,and I could not dismiss the opportunity of getting the image from my minds-eye and on to paper so to say. I

My Dear Friends,

I,ve been away from my blog again for a while, but I have also been meditating a lot. During these deep meditations and channeling sessions, I have been experiencing very  focused images in my Third Eye, scenes that I must put down in a painting, a creative image representing the vision that I experienced in the moment, in the ‘Now’ .

I hope you like it?

This one is called Resurrection.

Lost for Words

Published 03/11/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

My Dear friends,

I have been lost for words of late, I just can’t seem to summon up the words to write a post, I have however been doing a lot of painting and drawing, usually following on directly after my meditations. During these meditations I have received strong visions, pictures so vivid that once I come out of meditation I start to draw or paint. So in light of my lack of written posts, I have attached a few of my most recent paintings for you viewing, amusement and or comments.

My Spiritual Journey (Continued)

Published 19/10/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

My Dear Friends,

I thought it was about time I updated this page ‘My Spiritual Journey’ as I have neglected it for way, way too long 😦

Many things have happened to me over this past year or so, I have experienced many beautiful things and many things I would rather forget! However, I do realise that life as we know it is not a bed of roses, life comes with its up’s and it’s down’s, good and bad, happy and sad…Life, is as they say, ‘What it is’!. I

I do, however, also know that life is what you make it, life is how you view it and life is determined by your thoughts and your actions, we have choices each and every day, and most of the time we choose the easy route, the route with what we perceive is the least painful, the less challenging, and the one that sits closest to our comfort zone…But hey!, come on guys, the reality is all that you are searching for, and yearning for; sits just outside your comfort zone!….’Fact’

I, like many others am also comfortable within my comfort zone, I like to be alone most of the time, although I am a good socialiser and actually quite like it when I get off my backside and ‘Just Do It’!…But, I like many millions of others, I don’t often take the risks or walk outside my comfort zone because of fear, fear of the unknown…’Will it be ok? Will I be ok? What if?…Etc

My spiritual connection with my higher self, my sensitivity, my empathy and me healing energies have been gaining strength over the years, my intuition is really high and if I would only let go of my ego mind; fully, then abundance flows in my life, my life is filled with joy, happiness, love, and compassion, I go from strength to strength on ‘high’, high on life itself!…But it’s that damn word again ‘Fear’…that always holds me back, the fear of not being successful, the fear of letting people down, the fear of not generating enough income to survive and provide, the fear, the damn fear!…

My channeling has taken a back step of late because of fear, my daily meditations have taken a back step because of fear, my plans for my spiritual retreat have taken a back step or no step forward because of fear…..But why?….What is behind this fear?

So, yesterday I did a family constellation with a real Master, a lady who has been doing family constellations for more that 30 years, she teaches family constellations all around the world and yesterday I came out of my ‘Fear Closet’ and actually did one for myself…and it was amazing 🙂 She opened my eyes, and more importantly, opened my heart to what this fear was/is, she took me deeply into my own family constellation, we looked at all my family, my parents, their parents, brothers and sisters, aunties, uncles,children, grandchildren and the relationships within all these groups, we role-played my parents and as my heart started to open, out came the truths, the things that have been causing my fears, the things holding me back from living my life, from achieving the best from my life and holding me back from my future.

Now, obviously I’m not going to go into details of that was/is causing my fear but suffice to say I confronted them straight on, they were open right there before my eyes, I could see then, look them in the eyes and release them, and it felt great, I felt great….At last, my tears flowed, they flowed and they flowed, I met my fears head on, I took control, I gave the burdens that i have been carrying for years back to them as they were no longer mine to hold, and I stood tall; with a smile on my face and an open heart, once again ready to move forward with my life….

constellations

So, my dear friends, don’t allow your fears to hold you back any longer, reach out to someone who can help, message me if you need support, because there is ‘Always’ a way to break free of the chains that hold you back…. 🙂

Namaste with Love

Pain, Heart Ache, Tears…and More!

My Dear Friends,

It has been many, many, long weeks since I have been able to place my fingers on this keyboard, to even attempt to write my blog…Words have left me, my heart has been broken and I have been struggling to get through my days and my nights.

The love of my life, my beautiful wife has decided to leave me 😦 There is no one else involved and we are still the best of friends, she has her own spiritual journey and her own pathway to follow, and her own needs to consider, and although this decision has truly broken my heart, I also respect her and I honour her decision.

Tears, endless buckets of tears have left my eyes, washed down my face and helped wash away my pain, my heart has missed so many beats, the slightest thought, song, tv program or word seems to set me off again, my beautiful dogs have given me endless cuddles, laid by my side while I have been crying and comforted me on endless occasions over these past few weeks, helping me move on with my life.

My own spirituality, my connection to my higher self, my pathway has been called into my thoughts each and every day, I quizzed myself endlessly, asking myself why!…and Where am I going with my life!

I read your comments, see and feel the love that you share, and I’m truly honoured by your sentiment and words of love, compassion, and support.

Where do I go from here?….Honestly, I don’t yet know!

Each day is a new day, a move towards the future, and whatever that holds for me.

One piece of positive news is after many years of procrastination, I actually went to Bhutan, hiked up some of the highest mountains, visited many amazing Buddhist Monasteries and Temples, met with Lamas and Rinpoche’s, meditated in the sacred sites and touched my heart with the Buddha in one of the most amazing experiences of my life….Future post…Maybe!…Watch this space.

A New Dawn A New Day

My Dear Friends,

A new dawn, a new day and I’m feeling good 🙂

Its funny what a simple great night’s sleep can do for you, it gives your mind and your body time to rest, to regenerate your cells and give you the energy to push you through another day. And today, I’m feeling good 🙂 Yesterday, I was caught up in the worries of the world, my empathy and compassion for our world and humanity was at its highest level, and although I have tried to manage my response to this level of empathy, it just got the better of me. Maybe it’s the ‘Human’ side of my being that reacted where my ‘Light being’ side of me would have stepped aside and said, ‘Yes, I see all that is going on in this world, now, let’s chill a little, send out our understanding, our love and compassion to the world and trust that they will receive our blessings and act accordingly’.

When I awoke this morning, I looked out of the window, I watched the sun rising across the sky and where I am in the East, I thought ‘I wonder what today will bring to our world as the sun rises from the East and continues to share its light across to West’? I wonder how many others will look up to the sun in wonderment and ask the same question! Each day brings us a new chance, a new life and a great opportunity to live!…To make a difference to not only our own lives but to the lives of others too, but it is our choice and who am I to try to tell people what to do, or how to act!….I am a nobody in the great scheme of things, I’m just little old me, yes I care about our world, yes, I can about the lives of every person on our planet, yes, I care about our environment and I want to see peace and harmony prevail….But, who am I?….This is a question I often ask myself…Who am I and ‘What can I do today that will really make a difference?

Well, today is a day, to smile, to hold my head up high, to share my love, my joy and my compassion to whoever wants and needs it, so here I am, a humble man living in Shanghai, sending out my love to you all 🙂

Blessings my friends,

Namaste, with Love

Taking Time Out in the Concrete Jungle of Shanghai

Published 17/05/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

My Dear Friends,

One of my dear blogging friends Saymber said to me a few days ago, and I quote “.it’s important to stay grounded in these things. I would suggest a nice bit of time outside without shoes and socks and maybe some of your favorite music”. I replied that  its not so easy living in a concrete jungle with 28,000,000 (that’s 28 million) other souls, but I agreed with her that what she was saying was so true and i really needed to get myself grounded, take my shoes and socks off and re-connect with Mother Earth, so today, I did it 🙂 And I feel fantastic 🙂 I took a walk to my closest Buddhist temple for some we deserved meditation and prayers and on the way back I spent some quality time reconnecting, standing amongst the trees, observing the gentle breeze in the leaves, listening to the birds and totally clearing my mind.

Mother nature is so beautiful and she will share her beauty with you whenever you need it, she can be found on the corner of a busy street, under a shady tree set in the concrete walkway, or even in a simple window box of flowers, all we need to do is ‘Open our Eyes’ 🙂

Blessings Saymber, and thank you Mother Earth for bringing me home today,

Namaste, with Love

In Service To Others Helps Ones self !

The four harmonious friends, drawn by Lama Zopa Rinpoche

My Dear friends,

Clearing ones mind, managing our thoughts, opening our hearts, having compassion for others and being in service to mankind, all beings and Mother Earth, all parts of the philosphies of Buddhism, the Darma teachings and the Eightfold Path. In a world like this this in which we live in, we most often become caught up in the importance of our own life , sometime even our own survival. We loose track of who we are, we loose track and forget that all of humanity comprises of our very own ‘Brothers and Sisters’, we push forward relentlessly, chasing the dream and forgetting the important things in life like humility, compassion, loving kindness and love for all beings. The following story talks about the importance of loving kindness, being in service to others and the benefits that these simple acts can bring to our lives.

I do hope you like it?

The Story of the Four Harmonious Brothers

In former times in the jungles near Varanasi, a pheasant, a rabbit, a monkey, and an elephant lived in friendship and harmony. The four brothers declared that although their minds were harmonious, it was sad that in the world there was so little respect held by the young for the old. They decided to show respect for each other, according to the tradition of Dharma.

Having made this determination the four animals set out to make offerings and pay homage. The younger showed respect for the older by carrying the older on his back. Standing on each others’ backs in this way, the pheasant, rabbit, monkey and elephant reached the first limb of the nyän dro da (banyan tree).

The pheasant taught the others how to follow the moral conduct of not taking lives, not taking what was not given, not speaking deceptive words, not committing sexual misconduct, and not taking intoxicants. Then each animal led similar types of animals to themselves on the path of morality. Happiness and comfort increased greatly in the world.

At that time, the king, his ministers, and the general population had the proud belief that the good times were due to their own merit. In order to determine who was responsible for the peaceful times they gathered together and asked a hermit to tell them the cause of their happiness. Through his clairvoyance the hermit explained that the countries’ wealth was not due to the power of any of the people but to the merits of the four animals in the forest who were keeping the five precepts of moral conduct and leading the other animals on that path. He advised them that they, too, should behave like these animals.

Following this advice most of the people in that region began to keep the five precepts, and as a result, after they died, they were reborn in the deva realm.

It is said in the Vinaya teaching Dülwa rlung and the discourse Do de nä kyang rlung that the pheasant was an incarnation of the qualified destroyer gone beyond Shakyamuni Buddha and the others were disciples – the rabbit was Nyi gyä (Shariputra), the monkey was Päl na kyä(Maudgalyana) and the elephant was Kungawa (Ananda).

It is also said that wherever a picture of the four brothers is displayed, the 10 virtues will increase and the minds of all will become harmonious. There will be respect for elders and auspicious events will occur.

At first, there was just the bird, and the tree was just a little sprout. The bird could scratch around on the ground and find little bits of plant to eat. The bird was unable to fly, so the bird could only eat what it could find near to the ground. As the tree grew, it became difficult for the bird to get enough food to eat.

Then, the rabbit came. The rabbit would eat what was on the ground and would lift the bird up on his back so that the bird could reach the growing tree. In this way, they both had enough to eat. However, as the tree continued to grow, it started to become too high for the bird, even on the back of the rabbit.

Then, the monkey came. The monkey could climb up into the tree and drop the fruit from the tree onto the ground for the rabbit and the bird. However, it was difficult to get to the fruit at the very top of the tree.

Then, the elephant came. With the elephant, if all the animals helped each other, they could reach the fruit at the top of the tree; and, in this way, there was plenty for all of them to eat.

The reason the four animals worked so harmoniously together and the reason they were successful is that none of them was primarily concerned with getting enough food for themselves. Each of them was concerned with trying to help the others to get what they needed. Rather than being dominated by selfish concern, they were dominated by cherishing others.

Also, the reason they were successful is that they were willing to ask for help and to receive help. In this way, the bird is considered the hero of the story. The bird was the most fragile and needed the most help.

Because the bird was willing to ask for help and because the others were happy to help the bird, everything worked out very nicely.

In Tibet, in letters of advice to families who were going through some difficult times with each other, the Four Friends were often used as an example of how the family needs to stay together and help each other. Each member is very different and brings different strengths and different weaknesses, but if they work together, they can accomplish things they could never accomplish without working together.

This story is a story of interdependence. It is a story explaining how there is no place for self-cherishing, but rather we need each other and we need to help each other. The worst thing is self-cherishing. This is a story about working harmoniously.

Blessings Be All Beings 🙂

 

 

My Day’s Filled With Nothingness!

My Dear Friends,

I’m so sorry once again for being away from my blog so often, but I have once again been experiencing difficulties getting through to my blog due to the ‘Great China Firewall’. I do hope that I will be able to connect more often because I miss the interactions with you all, I miss reading your posts and I miss the ‘Group Heart’ that you are all so much a part of in my life 🙂

My day’s are filled with ‘Nothingness’, I guess I mean filled with no challenges, no pain, no anxiety, no wanting, just peace 🙂 ‘You should be grateful’, I hear you say 🙂 Yes my dear friends, I am so grateful, so grateful for all I have in my life because I am truly blessed, truly blessed with the awakening in my life, the spiritual journey that I am following, the lessons that have come to me during my lifetime thus far, the pains I have felt, the challenges I have faced, the love I have found and lost, the people that have come into and out of my life, grateful for each and every day.

This past year or so I have been working on my inner self, connecting with my Divine Self, opening and anchoring my channel pillar of Divine Connection in service to Mother Earth and the Heart of Humanity, this journey has opened my eyes to the hidden, my mind to the nothingness and my heart to the love and compassion that is so much a part of our existence. It has been a difficult and extremely challenging year which has brought me directly into the face of Karma, with Aspects, with Past Lives and with all the baggage left to me in this spiritual lifetime by endless reincarnations before me. And, although it has been a challenging, worrying, fearful and shocking experience, I have prevailed, I came out the other end of my learning with new knowledge, with open eyes, open heart, and a very open mind. My meditation practice has taken me on journeys through space and time, I have met with previous selves, seen their life, felt their pain and taken up their reigns in this lifetime, my life has changed, changed for the better, and I look forward to more days of ‘Nothingness’ in my life, day’s in which I can be of service to Humanity and Mother Earth.

I look forward to connecting with you all again soon my friends, may your weekend be filled with love and compassion and on this Full Moon day and as we enter into the Wesak Period, may you all be blessed with the Love of the Buddha 🙂

Namaste with Love

Unfolding My Wings, I Fly.

Freedom of mind leaves me with peace, the true peace, tranquility and happiness meant for my life here on Earth within this lifetime.

Freeing my mind and it’s torturous ways and the bindings of thought that hold me back from reaching my full potential. I am a divine being, I am light, I am love, I am one with God and my mind will no longer hold me prisoner within this lifetime.

My destiny is in my own hands, my future happiness is within my control, my mind will no longer play a part in my life because I have chosen to take back the controls and broken free of its grasp, I cut myself free from its bindings and will live my life in happiness with grace and ease.

Today, a new day, a day to be thankful for, a new dawning has given rise to my birthing, the birthing of the new me, a refreshed me, a being of light whose wings of freedom have been bound in the past, hidden from my view, but these wings are now free, they are open and ready to take flight, to soar high into the light, above the clouds that cast darkness on humanity, to take me to new pastures, and a new beginning.

I give thanks for all that I am,

I give thanks for all I will be.

Namaste with Love

A Channeled Message I did From Lord Buddha

My Dear Friends,

The breath of life is on the lips of all beings

Innocent hearts are filled with joy and compassion

Cluttered minds create resistance and block the light of God from reaching the souls of many.

Practice stillness, contemplate peace and live in the compassionate light of God and support the birthing of new generations that will come to the light with grace and ease.

Many tears will flow and help wash away the pain, and the smiles that follow the tears will be filled with the innocence of a child at play, this joy will be everlasting joy and will reach the hearts of all beings, bringing ‘Oneness’ and Peace on Earth.

My channeled message from Lord Buddha dated 15th September 2015

 

 

 

The Pathway of Life is a Spiral, Not a Straight Line!

Published 10/12/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

12342836_10153795285384122_6761112279831222390_n.jpg

My Dear Friends ,

Just when you think you have your life and your spiritual journey sorted…then…BAM!..Your whole world gets tipped upside down and you feel you have been blown off your course and it becomes difficult to know where you are on your journey and you get a Deja Vu feeling that you have been here before!

Well, that’s how I feel sometimes, anyway!

Been here, done that……I know you, or I have experienced this; or that before, haven’t I?

Almost certainly 🙂

Our life / lives, reincarnations take us on an endless journey, a journey of discovery, a wonderful journey in which our life / lives play out dependent upon our thoughts and our beliefs. We forge ahead often looking for something such as happiness, peace, love, abundance etc, or if we are on a more specific spiritual journey, maybe even awakening and enlightenment.

I don’t know about you but one minute you think you have that meditation thing cracked, then the next day your ego mind is back in the game filling your tranquil mind full of thoughts, spiraling around one after another like crazy dogs chasing their tails in the park 🙂

Or another day your heart is so full of compassion and kindness that every soul in need that you see breaks your heart and brings you to tears.

So, I have realised that my life is constantly evolving and there is no right or wrong way to travel my journey and I now firmly believe that our spiritual pathway is a spiral and we keep stumbling back across things we have experienced before, maybe even in a previous life, these reincarnated meetings along our journey of life are put there for a reason to remind us, to make us remember and enable is to see deeper truths.

So my dear friends, the next time you get that Deja Vu feeling, think of me and my stumblings along on my journey too 🙂

Namaste with Love

Always

Do you Over Think Everything?

My Dear Friends,

I’m so, so sorry; but I have not been so well again these last few days as I experienced a couple more allergic reactions. However this time we had no idea as to why or what caused them! The good news is I’m feeling ok again now, and,  I’m trying to get my mojo back, and get off my backside and write again 🙂

Overthinking…..I guess most of us are guilty of this from time to time and many of us are guilty of doing it all the time!..So that got me to even more thinking…. “Is overthinking a problem”?….Doesn’t it protect us from harm?……In my experience, all overthinking does for us is cause us more grief and suffering!

I know I have done my fair share of overthinking, especially in these past few weeks since my anaphylactic shock and death experience….and certainly each time I have had another allergic reaction since then; my mind goes into turmoil, thinking, wondering, overthinking…’Will I go into anaphylactic shock again, will my heart stop again, will I die again?’……’What’s causing all these allergic reactions, is it safe for me to go outside my home, will I eat something or drink something that will bring me another allergic reaction’!…and on, and on the vicious cycle goes, robbing me of my life, striking me down once again with more worry!

So what can we do to stop this or at least calm this overthinking down? Well, I meditate A LOT 🙂

I find meditation helps me calm my mind, it take me to places I can rest my mind, my body, and my soul, places that take me away from my daily life, from my work, from the worries of my illness, my allergies and my suffering, places that I have learned to love and to respect, they are mine, truly mine and I am safe there.

So, if you suffer from illness, anxiety, depression or loneliness, please try meditation, it may take you a few times to get the swing of things, but trust me, the wait is certainly worth it and the benefits far outweigh the pain of learning 🙂

If you have any questions on meditation, or just need a little support on how to start, please let me know and I’m happy to help 🙂

Namaste with Love

Always

Yesterday I died…Today I Live!

Published 25/11/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

935874_499879810085378_873568465_n

My Dear Friends,

Today I have more gratitude than ever, I am so thankful for every single aspect of my life because ‘Yesterday I Died’!

I went out for lunch during my normal working day, sat down in a local restaurant and ordered a sandwich for my lunch, I made sure that I told the waiter that I MUST not have any mayonnaise or eggs as I am highly allergic, and he assured me that was ok and took my simple order.My lunch came and I did my usual quick check inside the sandwich and all seemed to be well but after a few mouthfuls I realised something was very wrong, I started to get hot and my body was in reaction, I opened the sandwich fully only to find mayonnaise under the lettuce at the bottom of the sandwich, I quickly called the waiter and luckily I had antihistamine tablets with me so I quickly took 6, then called my wife from my mobile phone as I knew she was only a couple of blocks away from where I was having lunch. My wife arrived very quickly and immediately called an ambulance, in between the call and the ambulance arriving I went into severe anaphylactic shock!

The ambulance crew lifted me onto a stretcher and quickly got me into the ambulance, I could hear my wife telling them the problem and showing them my tablets, I was hooked up to a heart monitor, in-line drip just before the anaphylactic shock took its toll stopping my heart and I was dead…..

I could clearly see myself rise up from my body and look down on myself lying there, my wife watching me, calling to me and the ambulance man pushing adrenalin and Epinephrin into my body then starting to do CPR on my chest….

….. I was with God, surrounded by the Ascended Masters, Angels and Arch Angels, it was peaceful and I was very calm and at ease, I spoke out loud to God saying “I will not come to join you today” and when I said these words the last hit to my chest started my heart once again…

I was back…..

Into the hospital, onto a monitor, given more medication a drip of adrenaline, antihistamine and oxygen, after an hour or so I started to come around and understand where I was, my beautiful wife calling to me and holding my hand, tears of happiness in her eyes as I opened mine 🙂

I was back and intent on staying here…

Yesterday I died but today I live…..

I’m going through some serious emotions right now, my wife and I shared lots of tears together last night, tears from me; re the experience of dying, from the of the out of body experience and the coming back to life, and my wife for seeing me die and then the joy of seeing me come back to life!

My Dear Friends, life it so precious and too short, we never know when it is our time to leave this life, so please, enjoy every minute that you have, be grateful for all you have, live your life with love, with happiness and with compassion.

Namaste with Love, Always

Creating A New World

My Dear Friends

I often speak about ‘Oneness’, ‘Togetherness’, ‘One Humanity’ and how the realisation that we ‘are’ all connected, will eventually effect our ego minds and help us move forward to make our world a better place to live. ‘Oneness’, is the way forward and although we cannot make everyone understand; and want this, but we can still make a difference, “One seed at a time, one person at a time, one community at a time until this planet is embraced in a circle of resurgent life and resurgent love.”

I used to get so down when I watched the news on TV, read the newspapers or listened to the radio, ‘Wars raging, starvation, homeless, drugs, human trafficking, global warming, pollution of our environment, race hatred, religious hatred, corporate and political corruption and their need for global power and control’, but, now I realise that our world is changing, we ‘are’ starting to sit up, to notice and to awaken to these things, we are now starting to come together towards the ‘Oneness’ that is needed for our collective futures on this planet, we are starting to see the light and realise that ‘together’ we can make a difference, we can help someone in need and in turn they will help someone else in need, we can share the love, we can be grateful for what we have in our lives, we can love ‘ourselves’ and we can love ‘Humanity’.

Today my friends, I share my love with you, unconditional love from my heart, may your day be filled with the light of your God, may your heart be filled with love, happiness and compassion and if my words resonate with you, please hold our your hand to others and share this love.

Blessings to your all 🙂

Remembering 9.11, And All Those Who Lost Their Lives For No Reason Other than Hatred.

My Dear Friends,

9.11…. 14 years ago, A day still etched in may peoples minds, the day we saw hatred go to another level, the day in which so many innocent people lost their lives for no other reason other than hatred.

9.11, let us pray collectively as human beings, as brothers and sisters of humanity, from different countries, cultures, colours and religious beliefs, let’s today come together as one and pray that their lives were not lost in vain, and pray for world peace, for the coming together in ‘Oneness’ against terrorism, against hatred, against political or religious power or control.

Lets do as the monks did in Bangkok (picture below) After the bombing in Bangkok, Buddhists are changing the energy on the bombing site through meditation and prayer, proving that love is greater than hate. meditate and pray for peace.
