Surrender to Receive all that you Need

Published 26/01/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

Wow!…I have always had problems with this statement.. ‘Surrender to Receive all that you Need’. Like many, I have been travelling my own life’s journey and to date that’s about 55 years and 210 day’s to be precise in my case 🙂 and I still have trouble with the letting go, the surrender of the past!

The past is the past and it should firmly remain in the past. The future is the future and it should firmly remain in the future. The only thing we have for sure is ‘Now’, the present moment, all that we do, ‘EVER’ is in the ‘Present Moment’, so why do we waste so much time thinking of the past and worrying about the future?…Our previous life experiences, good or bad; play perfectly into the hands of our Ego Mind, adding fuel to the Ego’s fire and allowing it to hold us hostage with previous life experiences especially if the were bad, caused us trouble, held us back etc. And the uncertainty of the future, what it holds in store for us does exactly the same thing, allowing our Ego Mind to take yet another opportunity to cause us grief, ‘Your not worthy of that, you will fail at that, “Remember when you did that before and it caused you this problem? ‘so you had better not do that again’…and on and on these old thought patterns control us. Memories are good and they allow us to equip ourselves as we move forward but we do our lives a major injustice when we allow our Ego Minds to control who we are and from reaching our full potential.

Living our life in the ‘Now’ is perfect when we read about it in books, listen to self-help recordings, attend seminars, training programs and self-help groups but the reality is like the never ending diet, we try, then try, then try and try again but we just can’t stop that Ego Mind, that little demon on our shoulder from saying, “Watch out for that”, ‘Don’t do that”, ‘Remeber what happened before”, “you will fail at that”, “you will never loose weight”, etc, etc, etc, So in my opinion, and for what it’s worth my advice is…….

“Stick With It”…..Meditate often, everyday if you can, break free from what holds you back, from what ties you down and ‘Just Be’, ‘Just Breathe’, connect with your inner self, meditate and go into your heart, love yourself for what you are ‘Now’ and for what you ‘Have in your life now’, be grateful for all that you are and ‘Just Be You’, let go of all the pressures that surround your day and ‘Let Go’ to ‘Receive something far greater than your own plan allowed’ and you will find ‘Peace and Love’ because my friends, they ‘lie within’.

Blessings to you all my friends, may your meditations take you to your heart and connect you to your soul 🙂

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

Spread Your Light Through Kindness

Published 07/01/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

My Dear Friends,

I’m back!

It feels like an eternity since my last post, sorry we have been away for so long!….. My wife May and I have been away for Christmas and the New Year, spending time with family and recharging our batteries in readiness for yet another year back here in Shanghai.

2015 was a very interesting year, one in which was full highs and lows, my heath took many twisted turns for the worst and I had that death experience in the beginning of December, that experience in itself gave me a severe wake up call, it focussed my attention towards myself, to my life and to my future, it helped me realise what is important and what is not and brought greater realisation re the 80/20 principle, so now we are back and forging ahead into 2016 I now need to focus more on myself to my health and what means most to me and really start living the 80% for me, my health and my family, and engaging  in and enjoying what I love to do, my spiritual practice, my channelling, healing etc and spending the remaining 20% on work and paying the bills 🙂

I will continue writing as often as possible and this year I intend to pull together a book filled with my spiritual posts from this blog, my tweets, short self-help articles, items of inspiration, photography and general information on compassion, love, peace and happiness. I have been meaning to do this for many years now and now I feel that the time is right to get this done, so if you have any connections or experience in how to create and publish a book, please let me know because I have no idea where to start!

My focus for 2016 is sharing my light through kindness and I will look at every opportunity to share the gifts given to me with as many people as possible, I will shine brightly in 2016 and give out my love, my support and my healing energies to all as needed.

Blessings of love and light to you all and my wish that you, your family and your friends are blessed with love, good health, peace and happiness for 2016.

Namaste with Love

A Channeled Message I did From Lord Buddha

Published 17/12/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

CSSs7aBWEAAhOlS.jpg

My Dear Friends,

I just came across a channeled message that I channeled from Buddha back in September whilst I was undergoing an intensive channeling and meditation training session.

The message is so clear and means so much to me, I hope it will mean much to you too!

Namaste, with Love

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

 

 

 

We Are All Visitors to This Life, We Are Just Passing Through.

Published 15/12/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

12039439_958574204215934_4293314692736090751_n.jpg

 

My Dear Friends,

I came across this wonderful quote today and felt the urge to write a simple post 🙂

“We are all visitors to this time, this place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love ….and then we return home”…..

Wonderful..I just love it. These wonderful words really do resonate with my heart. As you all know, I recently had an actual death experience, but luckily for me I was brought back by the wonderful paramedics in the ambulance, and since that experience; I have been spending countless hours just thinking, well, not so much thinking, rather; clearing my mind of the clutter and actually observing my life and all that goes on in and around my life.

This ’emptiness of mind’ as I like to call it has given me a new perspective of what is and what is not important. I now 100% realise that love for myself, for my family, for friends and all beings is really important to me. This observation has taught me that I am wasting, yes; wasting so much of my life on trivial, unimportant things. I’m doing far too much to get the job done, but not paying any attention to myself, to my health, to my life. I always do my utmost best to do everything on time, to be perfect or as near perfect as possible, to make everyone happy, to do, to do more and to do even more for everyone….but me!….

Love of self, is really important, because if we don’t love ourselves then how can we expect others to love us?

So, we are now coming close to the end of 2015 and I am not one to have New Year Resolutions, to set myself goals for the coming year but I thought, Hey! Why not this year!….So, I have decided that I will clean up my act, sweep the floors and cobwebs our of my life and start 2016 with a fresh outlook, I will love myself, each and every day, I will honour myself each day, I will be thankful for each day, I will be thankful for all I have in my life, I will hold love and compassion in my heart for all beings here on earth, I will do my best to help make our world a better place to live, I will cut out the wasted hours and turn these hours into positive acts of kindness to myself and to others, I will write more, I will write that book that I have promised to do for the past ???? How many years, I will spend more time with my family and friends, I will spend more time in nature, I will meditate more, I will want for less….and

I will contemplate on and learn from all my past experiences, I will grow more spiritually, I will Love…and…after doing all I can and after ‘Living the rest of my life to the full’…

I will return home 🙂

Tomorrow is a new day, tomorrow is a new opportunity to live 🙂

Namaste with Love

Staying Afloat

My Dear Friends,

Learning to stay afloat is often very challenging for some and a constant battle for many. Learning to cope with the ebb and flow of life, the challenges we face each and every day comes somewhat easier for some than for others.

But for me, I understand that whatever life has in store for me, I can and I will ride that wave, like the champion surfer catching their ‘Point Break’ wave, I will get through any storm that life’s weather system sends to me 🙂

What is also important is bailing out the water from your vessel! As with any slowly sinking boat; water enters and eventually sinks the boat due to the weight it has added to that boat. So, therefore, it is the same with your physical body, taking on too much, allowing it to be flooded with constant showers of pain, anxiety, depression, the weight of demanding relationships, troubles and pressures from family, so called friends and work….Don’t allow your vessel to be weighed down to the pint of sinking from and by the weight others give to you! Stop being that trash yard, the go-to place for others to dump their negativity, their troubles, their workload! …Stand up for yourself, sit high in the waters of your life, sail YOUR journey of life and allow your sails to take you to your full potential within this lifetime 🙂

Namaste with Love

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

Do you Over Think Everything?

Published 08/12/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

10511145_10152520054697731_4944730564445703929_n.jpg

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

Is Your Ego Mind Controlling your Life?

Published 06/11/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

10511145_10152520054697731_4944730564445703929_n

My Dear Friends,

Is your Ego Mind controlling your life?

Many of us allow our Ego Minds to control our lives, and we don’t even realise its happening!

Everyday we look at ourselves in the mirror and tell ourselves we are not beautiful, we are too fat, too thin, face is too long, too round, our hair is a mess, and then we constantly allow ourselves to be dragged down further by our Ego Mind as they day continues….

You cant do that, you will fail at that, that job’s too big for you, you won’t be able to do that, you have no chance with him/or her….. 😦

We tell ourselves that we are ill and its just the way things are, we decide not to do something because something is telling us it won’t happen or it will end in failure!…..

Well, I can tell you to……STOP……STOP allowing your Ego Mind to Control your life.

You have to change the way you are thinking…..Think Positive, think of all the great things that have worked for you, think of all the things in your life that you are grateful for 🙂 …START telling your Ego that you don’t need him/her anymore and ask them to step aside and allow your life to change, to break free of the EGO Mind’s chains that hold you back from reaching your full potential….YOU CAN, YOU CAN, HONESTLY YOU CAN 🙂

Every obstacle, every limitation is ONLY TEMPORARY….. You just need to clear your mind and look at things in a new light, free from the chains of your Ego Mind….Come on my friends, give it a go, be free to live and love your life just how it should be 🙂

Have a wonderful weekend my friends 🙂

Namaste with Love

Where Is My Life Taking Me?

Published 22/10/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

563386_363892193684141_707840138_n

My Dear Friends,

Here I go again…thinking…and raising myself another challenging question…….

Where is my life taking me?

I sit, I ponder, I think and I meditate……..

………

…….

Just when we think our life is settled, some curve ball comes our way!…..Our life is turned upside downI Change my friends is inevitable , our lives are constantly in flow, this way, that way, ever changing and we ourselves never stay still, especially our minds, worrying about this, worrying about that, planning this, arranging that, floating off after the next thought process that comes into our minds and as were following that though another thought pops up and we follow that too, and on and on it goes, our busy minds controlling our lives….But, do we have to be slaves to our mind, can we draw the line in the sand and say to our mind ‘No More’, I don’t want to follow you anymore, I want freedom of mind, I want peace in my life?

Well, we could all pack up our things now and go off and become Buddhist Monks or Nuns, we could go off to the mountains of India, Thailand or Tibet, we could seek out a Guru to follow, we could give up all our worldly possessions and meditate for years on end…. But!…, will that satisfy our mind and bring us a more peaceful and contented life?…For some, yes,… It is a noble path to follow and certainly one I greatly respect and often wish for myself…But, I also live in the realities of life and I honour who I am, where I am and what is important for me. I, like most of you have family, friends, colleagues, work, commitments etc, I, like many others also dream of that better life, a more fulfilling spiritual life in which I can help those less fortunate than I.

So, where is my life taking me?….

Well, It’s taking me where I need to be each day, and I need to come to terms with that very fact, I am where I am because how and what I think, I’m here right now writing this post because this is where I need to be and this is what I should be doing right now…Fact!

I work with people Spiritually and through Psychology each and everyday, I and those who know me know what sort of man I am, I give my all, I give my love, I give my compassion out to humanity everyday and I’m certainly grateful for all the love I have in my life, for all the abundance in my life, for all the support I have in my life and I always give thanks for all that I am in each and every moment, so…..

My life is what I make of it, it will flow in the direction I take it,….

I choose to live a life of Love, Compassion and Support for the betterment of humanity, mother earth and our environment 🙂

Namaste with Love

Moving House Madness, Like Our Life in a Box

Published 21/10/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

image1 image2 image3

My Dear Friends,

I’m sorry for not posting for these past few days but I have been so preoccupied with moving apartments that i have not had the time to think and had no internet connection at our new home. But during the moving madness I noticed just how much ‘Stuff’ ( for those of you not from the UK or who may not know the term ‘Stuff’, it means things, miscellaneous items etc ) we have accumulated over the years, boxes and boxes of ‘stuff’, many boxes of ‘stuff’ are still boxed since our last move three years ago, and some even longer than that. This brings me to the thought of how we cling to ‘Things’, to ‘Stuff’, in the hope that it will come in useful one day, it brings us fond memories, the suit or dress may fit me again one day when i loose weight, so they follow us from one home to another never seeing the light of day again, taking up much needed space and costing us money in expensive real estate square footage/meterage!

So, then it go me thinking how this clinging to ‘stuff’ actually mirrors our lives, our personalities and our behaviours, where we cling to ‘Stuff’ that hurts us, holds us back and stops us from ever reaching our potential and achieving our life purpose. The clinging to old relationships, holding on to grudges, allowing aspects of our lives and old Karmic ties and bonds from this life; and previous lives to continue controlling us, stopping us in our tracks and leading us back to the past each time we try to move on with our lives!

So, moving home is a great time to have a clear out, to open up those boxes and shed those items from your past, especially those that hold you back, those old clothes will probably never fit you again so give them to friends or to charity, allow someone else to gain the benefit, to bring a smile to their face when they try those clothes on and feel good maybe for the first time in ages! Give those toys and ornaments away, or if you like sell them off and do something nice with the money…but, shedding those items will bring you a new lease on life, it will bring a smile to your face and it in doing so you bring happiness and joy to someone else…even better 🙂

Now, on to your personal life, maybe it’s time you shedded some weight, not physical pounds/Kilo’s, but excess baggage that you have been carrying for years, old karma holding you back, old grudges, old relationships that you have not fully let go, and of course people in your life that continue to hold you back…..

There are many groups out there who can help you with this process of shedding/letting go, if you don’t know where to start or need my help, please let me know and I will be happy to help you with this process.

Make today, the first day of spring, clean out the old and make way for the new 🙂

Namaste with Love

Creating A New World

Published 11/10/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

12011258_953923401317655_4202866828818458524_n

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 🙂

Choose Happiness, because it makes you feel Alive!

Published 02/10/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

My Dear Friends,

Happiness is a choice we all make, but for the majority happiness for many is what they are always seeking, each day waking up, but feeling down, feeling depressed, not happy with their lives, their jobs, their house, their car, the food on their table, the clothes on their back…always seeking more of what they think will ultimately bring them happiness… but for others; many people around the world who have very little in their lives, happiness comes from just waking up in the morning and seeing the sunrise, to smell the scent of the flowers, to see a smile on a child’s face brings absolute joy and happiness.

So my dearest friends, happiness is a choice….. It starts within…So….

Choose wisely 🙂

Namaste, with Love

The Divine is present in Everyone

Published 30/09/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

10460718_698438986896125_4364633028611641580_n

My Dear Friends,

Whilst meditating this morning and as I travelled freely into the depths of my very being, connected with my heart, my authentic self and my soul, I was for a while in paradise, there was no stress, no challenges, no confrontations, no need to have high expectations for myself, just pure unadulterated time for me, me and myself, me, myself and my Divine Spirit.

This got me to thinking, after the meditation had finished I should add 🙂 Thinking as to how often we all connect to our authentic self? and how much of your life are you living as your authentic self?…I should i guess take one second to explain what i mean by authentic self…Well, most of us lead and live our lives through our Ego mind, our Ego mind is the chatter we hear, it guides our lives most all the time telling us what to do and what not to do, for some of us the Ego mind is ok and sort of in balance but for many the Ego mind is all controlling, and also along with the Ego mind are our ‘Aspects’, aspects are part of this life, our previous lives, they are connected to us by our experiences in this and past lives, they come to us through our family, our lineage and they too can be all controlling, telling us what to do and what not to do, then of course there is our old friend ‘Karma’, Karma comes about again through experiences, what we did in this life or previous lives, the reaction to something we did or maybe did not do…So our friends Ego, Aspect and Karma all take their time to control our very being, it’s the chatter when you want to go somewhere that says’Don’t go, you know it wont be good for you’, or ‘You have no chance with him or her, they are far too good for you’, ‘You will never be able to do that, you know you always fail’, etc, etc. They also control our emotions evoking bad reactions to given situations and experiences and some of the aspects can make us physically sick and stop us in our tracks, holding us back from doing things, going somewhere even something simple like going into a restaurant can cause some people grief because an old aspect held them back!

Our authentic self, our divine self will always guide us to do whatever is in our highest interest at that specific time, it won’t lead us astray and if in balance with our divine feminine and divine masculine, it will always receive whats best for us from the heart of God and make manifest this for us in our lifetime.

A  question for you..”What are you creating with your own experience, what messages from your daily life are being sent/said to your soul’?

Are they happy, joyous, or anxious, sad and depressed, unhappy, loving, wonderful etc…?

When your life story is being replayed, what does it show?

Are you living your life in happiness and joy or are you being controlled by your Ego mind, your Aspects and old Karma?

Remember, Everything going on in your life IS YOUR OWN CREATION!…. You may not always be in the most perfect relationship, job or home but how you choose to react to this life matters because this reaction is what is being transmitted to your soul….

In a recent channel session I had with Saint Germain he said, ‘It is for you to find the joy, it is your life to live and if you are living with unhappiness then come to terms with it and make a change in your life, there are many stories in life and you need to find the ‘Gift of Life’ for you and not just sit there and live in a unhappy life full of sadness and depression, it is after all your response to what is in your life so choose to be happy with what you have or make a change!

Saint Germain asks…’What are you doing with your gift of life?, are you giving it away to somebody else, are you giving away all/most of your energy to others, spending all your time working, chasing the dream but living in unhappiness? ‘How much time to you spend singing, laughing, dancing, living and enjoying all that life brings to you?…You should be dancing, co-creating, living and enjoying life 80-90% of your day!…So…

We must ask ourselves,

Are you dancing with life?

Are you living your life through your true authentic self?

If Not, then why not?

These will be aspects, old karma and your ego mind holding you back, holding you prisoner in your life! So if so, is it that you are you not seeing your true potential or even realising what gifts your life has to offer you?

The time has come for change, the stories in your head are just stories which hold you back from reaching your full potential, these stories are ‘Past, not ‘Present’, so it’s now time for change, time to let them go, time to move on and…

Live Your Life To The Full 🙂

Namaste, with Love

The Heart and The Mind

Published 28/09/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

My Dear Friends,

I have been away from my blog for a couple of weeks or so now, searching deep within myself, connecting with my heart, my soul and finding my Divine Self. This journey has been amazing, it has taken me to places within my very being that I have never been before, it has opened me up to emotions and to feelings that have been long repressed by my mind and my ego and it has given me the chance to make peace with and to let go of many things from my life that have been holding me back from reaching my full potential within this lifetime.

To finally making peace with; and to letting go of old belief systems from this lifetime and also connecting me to many previous lifetimes, old Karma, Aspects, contracts and agreements tied to old experiences, and promises made by me and other previous lives. Coming face to face with these has brought me much needed clarity, understanding and closure as to what has in fact been controlling my life thus far, and also the realisation of my future, my spiritual journey and where in fact that is leading me.

My meditations, ceremonies and connections with the Divine Masters has been wonderful, connecting with them each and everyday, channelling them and downloading their messages, their wisdom and their codes for my life, connecting me with places outside of this world, this reality and this dimension and taking me to places I have never dreamed of possible. But now I know different, I have experienced so much in these past few weeks, I have seen, touched and connected with the light and the awesome power from the very heart of God. I’m blessed with this ability and I now hold out my life in service to the light and to help others understand the pathway to the light and what that power will bring to Humanity.

I will share more of this journey with you during the next few months as I take further steps forward on my personal journey of discovery. I will endeavour to share my experiences, some of the codes, mantra’s and messages given to me and to help you in anyway possible so you too may be able to experience this wonderful journey into the light.

Blessings of Love and Light

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.

Observation & Judgement …..Your Mind and The Games We Have To Play

Published 13/08/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

My Dear Friends,

You have to be quicker than your own mind!

When you see yourself analysing or negatively judging what you observe in yourself, whether it is a thought,emotion, or attitude, be more clever than the one who is judging or analysing. Step back into the observer; observe the judge and don’t judge him. The judge becomes the object of your observation. Remember to make every disturbing element the object of your observation; in this way, the observer goes more deeply into observation each time, whereas if you see what comes as an obstacle to observation, it becomes one.

The more you are in the observer , the less importance the object you observe has. When you are in the state of the observer, , which is not the state of the dreamer, you observe what you decide to observe and are awake to the rest; otherwise this state of concentration leads to emptiness, but to a hollow emptiness. True emptiness is the emptiness of the observer who is detached from the mechanism and capable of taking in everything. Thoughts come and go in your emptiness, and it remains empty because nothing remains attached to it.  The observer sees everything, it remains tranquil, there are no negative emotions . Everything is handles rightly. Things pass, the observer can take them seriously or lightly, it is identified with nothing. Judgment belongs to the world of things that pass.

So keep on observing with no judgment my friends and have some fun with your mind.

Namaste with Love

Peace, what does it mean to you?

My Dear Friends,

Oh my, I’ve been thinking again!…..

I don’t know what’s got a hold of me since i’ve been away, maybe it was the quietness of my retreat, the contact with nature, time on my own to reflect and be thankful for all I have in my life, who knows but it’s great to be back and thinking again 🙂

I was up early again this morning, jet lag has been far worse than normal this time and has been playing havoc with my sleep patterns 😦 Still, it does also have its blessings as being awake so early gives me time to just sit, to be at one with myself and to reflect and think. This morning’s topic was ‘Peace’ and what does that word really mean to me? It conjours up to sides for me, one is the obvious ‘world peace’ where all countries come together in harmony and bring about an end to conflicts between different cultures, religions and countries then the other is being ‘at peace’, peace within myself/yourself.

I don’t think many people actually find peace with themselves, they are always chasing around looking for something more for their lives, more money, a better job, bigger house, bigger car, a holiday, more clothes, a fancy watch, diamond ring, more education, just more and then more, also seeking happiness where ever they go, meeting new friends, going out more, socialising, building a dream, looking for love, looking for acceptance, looking for praise, looking and looking outside, a constant journey seeking out happiness and peace….but the reality is you wont find it outside, you wont find it in things, you wont find it in your travels, you wont find it in a bigger house or a new job or a new relationship…….

Happiness and peace are within…..

And once you come to terms with that then you can let go, you can free yourself of the chains that hold you back, you can become one with yourself, you can start to love yourself and find your true self, your happiness and your inner peace.

Take time out today my friends, take time to just be you, take time to sit with yourself and just be the wonderful you 🙂

Namaste with Love

Perplexity over Delusion

Published 07/07/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

IMG_9950

If deluded, one will have questions, which is doubt;

If deluded, one will fall into a state of dilemma, which is confusion;

If deluded, one will be lured by the external realm, which is temptation;

If deluded, one will be deceived by fake presentation, which is deception;

Delusion arising, afflictions arise; with afflictions, there comes misfortune.

Food for thought my friends, food for thought.

Namaste with Love

Always
