My Dear Friends,

It has been a very long time since I last posted here on my blog and for that, I’m so sorry!

As you know my life has been going through some challenges, my heart was broken and I shut myself down, protecting myself from all around me. But through my meditations and connection to my channel, to my higher-self, I have once again found my life, I have picked up my life through Art, this art and my daily meditation sessions have re-awakened me to the joys of life, my art has brought me freedom once again and helped me re-connect with humanity, to make new friends and to start to love again 🙂

I’m smiling, my tears are not just filled with sorrow anymore, they are filled with joy 🙂 My thoughts come and go and I’m once again living in the ‘Now’. Over the years, I have spoken about pain, compassion, joy, love sorrow and grief, and I believe also I have helped a few people along the way with the words that used to flow freely from my fingers within my posts. But these posts came to a staggering halt when I lost my love, I found it hard to open myself up to others, to interact, to be joyful beyond the smile I showed to people in my daily life, this false smile was hiding the true hurt inside my heart.

Picking up my pencils and my brushes have allowed the freedom of my spirit to talk to me through my art and it has helped me re-connect with humanity, to once again open up my heart to the joys that life really holds for me in this lifetime. I am truly awakened to a new me, to a new phase in my life and I feel stronger than ever before 🙂

I have added a few images of my latest venture into Thangka painting, this and my other art brings me joy, relaxes and calms my mind and allows the true me to open my heart to the future.

Blesings of Love to you all my friends

Healing Your Creation Temple ~ A Meditation from Quan Yin

Published 03/03/2017 by inspiringyourspirit

A48_1.jpg

We are the Quan Yin and we wish to share with you this day our beloved sisters and brothers. We thank you for your time and energies. We offer you a Rose of Dispensation and an Elixir of Light now to support your energy to open and release all that.

Choose now to open up your heart and be in the light now. Allow the energies of the light to flow through you. Breathe in deeply now and focus on your sacral chakra.

As you open the sacral chakra, feel the light of love fill the sacral chakra now, our beloveds. Ask now for this light to lift all wounds in your sacral chakra.

We place now a yellow rose in the sacral chakra and it begins to open and grow and expand now. Open your energies and allow for this expansion to occur now, dear ones.

Speak softly to your sacral chakra and ask it to surrender to the light all the memories it holds now. It is not just about the feminine energies held in the sacral, but it also includes the masculine energies held in this sacral chakra. It is the chakra of your creation.

The sacral chakra holds the original memories of your creation and separation from Source. It is in this chakra that these memories are held for all time.

We ask you now to breathe in deeply and allow these memories to be released. If you feel any pain or discomfort in your body, we ask you to simply become aware of this and focus your love on this area as your breathe deeply in and out.

Continue with this breath for five minutes or more as you place your focus on the heart of the sacral chakra. Focus on this place within you.

The healing angels and three archangels come to you now to assist with this, as we come to hold you now in this time. Call for us now to be with you.

Where the wounds have manifested within your physical body the healing angels begin to work on this area and the organs around it, so you may feel a tingle or a pulling here. We ask you to breathe through this gently and deeply.

You may wish to tone or to sound aloud as this occurs for you, dear ones. As this healing begins to take place, know that it is also taking place on all other levels of your light body.

This sacral chakra holds many memories from all the dimensions in your multi-dimensional bodies and this clearing occurs now to assist you in your creation of Self and the life you are choosing to manifest on Earth.

We ask you now to visualise yourself in your sacral temple, your temple of creation. For some it will be a golden temple with large columns of light, for others it may be crystalline temple in its nature, and for some it will be pure white and luminous.

Choose to open and expand your heart energy in this temple and fill it with the love from your heart. Feel the energies expand now as your sacral temple becomes filled with the loving essence of your being.

The Masters and the Angels are with you to assist you with their energies and to lift your energies into a higher vibration.

You may feel this tingling through your body now in the physical. As you stand in your creation temple you see a long corridor and we ask you now to walk along this corridor.

It has many doors on both sides and as you walk you will feel called to enter these doorways. As you step inside a doorway you may see or hear other beings in this room. These are the soul aspects of your memories held in the sacral.

We ask you now to explore these rooms and doorways as you feel called. Some may feel inclined to step into many rooms and some may only wish to enter one. All is perfect for you in divine timing, dear ones.

As you open to reconnect with these memories we will help you to clear them from your sacral creation temple and restore them to God again.

Work with your souls aspects now and allow them to show you the memory they hold in this room, if they feel they need to show you. We ask you to hold the love vibration in your heart through this connection and to speak to them with love in your words and your being.

Send these soul aspects love now. Send this love to their hearts and allow them to be filled with this vibration.

Ask them now to surrender all they hold in separation memory to God, to the Source of all that is. Ask them to forgive now all that has occurred across all time, space and dimension and across all planes and on all levels.

Some of you, beloved ones, may need to call on the karmic council for release of any karma consciousness that is held over these memories. Simply call the karmic council and then ask them for karmic absolution in regard to this now. Wait for their response. We will intercede on your behalf and lift the karma to the light of God’s heart.

Many soul aspects may need to break agreements and vows or contracts they have made and we ask you to ask them if this is the case. Ask them simply, do you need to break any agreements or vows you have made. If they say yes, then do so.

When this is complete for you ask them now to release all memories and associations of their aspects in this dimension now to God and to place it all in the eternal flame of God’s heart until these aspects are standing before you in their true nature of light, in their true being, no longer hidden by the dark veils of memories and emotions. When they are in their true nature of light ask them to merge with you in your heart.

Send a rainbow bridge of light to them with love from your heart and ask them to walk across this bridge into your heart. Embrace them as they come to you with love and compassion and surrender to this process. They merge now with you back into the One heart of all that is through your heart and this divine healing process.

We ask you to remember to breathe through this process and to ask for assistance at all times from us, the Quan Yin,  and the Angels of healing that are with you during this process.

When you have completed one room of old karmic memories, you may continue down the corridor doing the same until you feel there are no more rooms you need to enter at this time.

Then continue all the way to the end of the corridor where you walk through a doorway into a chamber of healing. Stand within this chamber and a golden shower of light flows over you, surrounding you. The chamber then fills up with golden light completely and you find that you are floating in this chamber of golden light. Breathe and simply allow this process to occur.

As it does you feel your body completely give way to the energies and it makes you feel profoundly relaxed. You may even release a large sigh, as if all is released now.

Remain in this healing chamber for the time you feel is needed for you.

When you are ready to leave, continue through the door on the other side. An emissary of light is waiting for you on the other side with a robe of white and gold light to place over you.

The emissary takes you back to the main room of your creation temple and asks you to lie on the beautiful white and golden bed that is on the floor. Red roses are scattered all around this bed as you are asked to lie down.

Voices begin to sing to you now in the temple, gently at first, until they build to a crescendo. The vibration of these voices runs through every part of your body. You may at times feel like you are levitating from the bed in your temple.

Breathe now and allow this healing to occur. You may feel hands being placed upon your sacral chakra and your heart chakra, or other parts of your body. Breathe as this occurs. Breathe in the energy of healing that is being offered to you. Remain here in the temple until you feel it is complete.

At this time you may feel like toning or sounding aloud in your own language or you may simply feel like being in the quiet of your true creation nature. Allow whatever comes for you at this time, dear ones, to complete this healing.

Know that your sacral chakra is your divine creation chakra, the creation of all that you are. It assists you to be all that you are in your true nature of light. It supports you to create for yourself all you need to create on this Earth now. It is the chakra of fertile creation and manifestation. It assists you to manifest all in your life that you need to continue your journey and to walk on your path.

We love you, our beloved sisters and brothers. In faith and love, namaste to you.

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

So much Sunshine on a Cloudy Day!

Published 15/10/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

I
My dear friends,

‘Today’s a new day and there is no sunshine’,…  but when I really open my eyes and look with my heart, I see sunshine everywhere 😄 

The trees 🌲 giving out their oxygen so we can breathe, bring a smile to my face. The flowers in the park sharing their fragrance with all those who stop and take in their beauty . The children running around with endless energy and enthusiasm their grandparents and parents sharing their games. Even the dark clouds passing overhead , heavy with rain and fit to burst, bring me joy as they will nourish the earth beneath my feet and quench the thirst of the trees and the flowers 🌹 

Sunshine is there for all to see , we just need to ‘stop’ for a while and take in the beauty that is ‘always’ around us 😄

I wish you all a very happy weekend

Namaste with love ❤️

Positivity

Published 14/10/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

postivethinking.jpg

My Dear Friends,

Positivity.. noun. ….’The quality or state of being positive’. “Something that is positive’

What does this word really mean to me and to you?….Well, I believe that waking up with a positive attitude is really important to our lives, positivity brings us to where we want to be, it connects us to our heart, it connects us to our divine self, to our true self and it takes us away from our negative self, our ego-self!

We believe that things or people make us unhappy, but this is not accurate. We make ourselves unhappy. Very little is needed to make our lives happy; we all already possess this skill,  it’s all to do with our way of thinking.

Suffering and the onslaught of negativity and pain is brought on from our desires. Our desire to remain in the current state, to keep our youthful looks, our trim figure, our beautiful hair, our desire to gain wealth, desire to achieve greater control, greater power, more authority, our desire for sensual pleasures, for alcohol, drugs, food, money, and of course our desire to be happy….So we constantly strive to find this happiness everywhere, we seek it each and every day, we see people on the street, on the TV in the media who look happy in their big houses, their jobs, in their relationships..so we want the same, right?

I have learned that happiness starts within, it starts with our thoughts and our positivity helps is live happy contented lives, I know for sure that when my ego mind steps up, then my happiness and positivity levels drop through the floor. It eats away at you, controls you, and brings you down to its level, to where it wants you to be.

So, I have decided that ‘positivity’ is my new keyword, I have been through a lot, especially over these past few months. This has allowed my ego mind to play tricks on me, to put me in ‘The Victim’ mode, to make me feel sorry for myself, to allow me to have negative thoughts about all that I do, and all that happens to me. My negative emotions have taken control of my life…..and, ‘enough is enough’…I’m taking my life back,

……I’m taking my life back, I’m getting back in the saddle, taking up the reigns again for my life, I’m moving on, I’m holding my head high and ‘I’m happy 🙂

So, this morning when my dogs came in to wake me, I got up straight away, I greeted them with a smile as they wagged their tails and gave me their usual dose of unconditional love, I gave thanks in prayer to The Buddha, to the Ascended Masters, to My Parents, to my family and friends, and I vowed to continue my journey of self-discovery with a new vigour, with a bounce in my step, and with new love in my heart, a new love for me, for the person I am and for the person I will be.

Namaste with Love

The Path of Service

Published 13/10/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

img_9760

My Dear Friends,

So often we confuse our path of service with serving the needs of our ego mind. It is not always easy to know the difference because when we follow our ego mind we may become very stuck in old programs – all that we already know or that others know – such as the programs of our family, friends and even our spiritual connections. These help to keep us in our comfort zone.

Yet, what we do not always understand is that we are here to be in service to the light of God within each one of us and to manifest it on the Earth in some way in accordance to Divine Will. We are here to be guided by our Divine Self, that part of God that sits in the heart of each one of us.

Saint Germain tells us: “There is one primary reason for you to be and that is to manifest the essence of God into the physical dimension.“

We are all emissaries of God’s light on the Earth and we are here to make that light manifest in the physical plane. How do we do that? Open to receive the guidance of our Divine Will because it will always show us the path. Yet are we truly listening and do we know the difference between our divine will and our ego will?

To offer service to our light we are asked to let go all the agenda’s we hold about God’s light – where it is, what it is, how it should look and what it does or does not do. More importantly, we are asked to let go all preconceived ideas about how it manifests in the physical plane. When we hold old programs and beliefs of what this is, then we can only serve through the ego mind.

Our ego mind does not know the heart of God’s light within us, it does not know the Divine Plan of God’s heart, it does not know the mystery of God’s heart and it is limited in what it ‘thinks’ it knows.

So when we serve our ego mind to manifest our path of service to the heart of God’s light we always serve the light with limitation and very often in illusion or distortion.

Yet how do we serve the light to manifest through us in each moment on the Earth? We all have keys and codes within us to assist this to occur. It is for each one of us to make a choice to go deeply within our hearts and connect with our divine light to find these keys so we may truly serve the light of God’s heart to be manifested on the Earth in alignment to the will of our Divine Self.

How we manifest God’s light will be different for each one of us because we are all unique codes of God’s heart. Yes, we are all one but each one of us makes up the whole and each one of us holds specific gifts and codes from the light of God’s heart to manifest on the Earth.

We do not need to know the how and why, all we are being asked to do is to open our hearts and allow the light of God’s heart to flow in our lives every day. When we do this the how and the why always takes care of itself through our alignment to Divine Will.

When we allow Divine Will to flow in our lives it will guide us on the path of service to our light that we are here to follow. Divine Will does not need to be told what to do or how it has to be done by your ego.

Choose to let go your need to control the mystery, let go your need to always know and interpret the heart of God’s light through your mind. Simply open your heart to serve your Divine Light and all will flow in perfect divine order.

Pain, Heart Ache, Tears…and More!

Published 10/10/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

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.

Namaste with Love

Hollow Words Bring Us No Hope!

Published 27/07/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

3089_365727780167249_294575617_n.jpg

My Dear Friends,

It’s been a while since my fingers touched this keyboard and my heart has spoken words to you!

I, like many others, have been lost for words as we watch the unfolding dramas of our 21st Century world, our so-called civilised societies which have been caught up in wars for no reason, and whole communities within these civilised societies turned against each other in the name of race/colour and religious belief.

As I look at all that has unfolded over this past year alone, I shed tears, tears for mankind, tears for our world and tears for our future. As we continue to look at each other with hatred in our eyes, it is like we are caught up in an elaborate computer game in which the players manipulate the drones to follow their lead, to fight and to die at all costs, and move on to the next stage of the game in search of more power and wealth!….Elaborate computer game….Is it our real truth?

……….Elaborate computer game….Is it our real truth?

As we become more fixated with games or war, of power, of seeking greater riches and strength, we lose track of who were are!….We no longer socialise face-to-face, we only communicate in a digital world, we have, or are certainly losing our abilities to communicate, to connect to others with empathy, to see the pain in someone else’s eyes and to understand their point of view, as we push forward relentlessly to reach our own goals…to win at all costs!

I see hundreds of innocent men, women and children mowed down as they watched the fireworks and celebrated a national days holiday, I see thousands of displaced men women and children forced from their own countries due to war, to the greed for control and power, I see innocent families held hostage in a Church and a Priest murdered….All for what!….

Where, my friends, does it end!….

We are all born into this world equal, we have no belief systems, no hatred and no goals to attain…life takes all on different journies, some of the beliefs we take on are good, and some are bad….it’s a flip of a coin which pathway we decide to take, what we choose to believe and how we choose to behave…!

Anyone who is not working towards the truth is missing the whole point of living!

Your beliefs don’t make you a better person, Your behaviour does!

My heart sends out love and compassion to all those in pain, to all those who are suffering and to all those who need some love in their life.

Namaste, with Love

Always

Feeling Tired, a Little Lost and Deflated!

Published 12/05/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

13087790_473251892880177_3611041991704215657_n.jpg

My Dear Friends,

I’m not sure about you but these days I’m feeling very tired, a little lost and somewhat deflated and I have no idea why!

Over this past year or so I have dedicated my time to my own spiritual journey of self-discovery, I have connected with my channel, opened my channel pillar, connected with my previous lives, called in my aspects, settled old Karmic ties contracts and belief systems, dealt with many; many things that have held me back from reaching my full potential, and ,once again found and really connected with my own group heart, surrounded myself with and channels the teachings and codes from many Ascended Masters, Angels, Arch Angels, spiritual guides all whilst finding and really connecting with my higher selves and Divine Self…….Fantastic, yes!…..Amazing and uplifting experiences, yes!…..But now what?

Fantastic, yes!…..Amazing and uplifting experiences, yes!…..But now what?

Amazing and uplifting experiences, yes!…..But now what?

But now what?…….

Whilst I was going through this process, words came to me so easily, I could place my hands on my keyboard, close my eyes and my fingers would do the talking, words would appear on my laptop screen and I would be amazed at what I read at the end, I found myself connected to many projects, opened my heart fully to everyone and everything that needed my help. However, since I finished this process, I now feel lost, words are hard to find and I really feel tired and lethargic, somewhat at a loss with my humble human life and existence….!

Why?

I think the answer is I’m integrating all that I have experienced, the codes, the languages, the energies and the frequencies I received during the year-long process are now being absorbed, finding their place in my physical form, allowing the information to connect with and to my human experience in this lifetime, and like a library book having codes associated with the process, the teachings and content of the learnings tagged on the cover for storage in my mind and ease of use when the need arises in the future!….

I really need to take this time for this process to happen fully, even though I’m desperately wanting to move forward to my next challenge, I want to re-connect to my higher selves, my divine self and all these wonderful masters and guides that have been with me for this past year, to once again sit amongst their presence, to feel their energies, to absorb their knowledge and to put this knowledge and learning to good use here in this lifetime…But as I was told by Saint Germain, “Dear One, all will come to you in the fullness of time, there is no time, time is but a word used bu Hu-manity, so do not place your learnings on what you call ‘time’, you are a healer, you always have been a healer and this lifetime is now once again connecting so you can continue your learning and connect with the knowledge that your collective group heart is here to make manifest and bestow on this earth and for the benefit of humanity. Dear One, clear your mind of all its

………But as I was told by Saint Germain,……. “Dear One, all will come to you in the fullness of time, there is no time, time is but a word used by Humanity, so do not place your learnings on what you call ‘time’, you are a healer, you have always been a healer, and through this lifetime you are now blessed once again with the openness to re- connect with the knowledge and healing libraries within the many dimensions of all space and time; so that you can continue your learning and connect with the knowledge that your collective group heart is here to make manifest and bestow upon this earth, and for the benefit of humanity. Dear One clear your mind of all its obstacles, be at peace with yourself, open your heart to receive the light, the codes, the learning and the messages that are waiting for you, allow for this knowledge to enter into your light stream and ground this knowledge deep into Mother Earth, make it manifest and share it with all that come forth to you”.

So my dear friends, here I am, feeling tired, a little lost and a little deflated but I know all will come good, I am still on my journey and I’m willing to be of service to mankind as is meant to be!

Namaste, with Love

Always

Lost then Found

Lost then Found

Lost in the spinning vortex of my mind

Thoughts rushing around like clothes in a washing machine

Thought after thought, never ending

Where do I begin, what do I do

 

Time stands still as my thoughts take control

I’m going nowhere fast

It’s like I’m standing at the crossroads of my life

Stuck, no idea which way to go

 

How do I break free, know which road to choose

Is it left, is it right or is it straight ahead

My life is in tatters as my mind keeps telling me

You’r useless, no use to anyone

 

I’m tired, I’m lonely, I’m sad with my life

Is my mind right or can I break free

Free from these chains holding on to me

Show me the light to please set me free

 

From a flicker to a flame

The light breaks the darkness of my life

The shadows begin to disappear

And new life blooms in front of my eyes

 

New life, new beauty, new focus

Beyond the shadows and darkness is life

Life for you, a new day is dawning

Breaking free now and rushing forth

 

On to tomorrow, setting myself free

Living in the now as it’s meant to be

Understanding self, whom I’m meant to be

A joy, at last now I know who I am

 

A being of light, a son, a brother, a husband, a friend

In service to humanity

At peace with the world

Seeing joy and in gratitude for each day

 

Love, peace and kindness to all beings

 

Namaste with Love

  • A state of tranquillity or serenity: May he rest in peace.

 The term ‘peace’ originates most recently from the Anglo-French pes, and the Old French pais, meaning “peace, reconciliation, silence, agreement” (11th century). But, Pes itself comes from the Latin pax, meaning “peace, compact, agreement, treaty of peace, tranquility, absence of hostility, harmony.” The English word came into use in various personal greetings from c.1300 as a translation of the Hebrew word Shalom, which, according to Jewish theology, comes from a Hebrew verb meaning ‘to restore’. Although ‘peace’ is the usual translation, however, it is an incomplete one, because ‘shalom,’ which is also cognate with the Arabic Salaam, has multiple other meanings in addition to peace, including justice, good health, safety, well-being, prosperity, equity, security, good fortune, and friendliness. At a personal level, peaceful behaviors are kind, considerate, respectful, just, and tolerant of others’ beliefs and behaviors — tending to manifest goodwill. This latter understanding of peace can also pertain to an individual’s introspective sense or concept of her/himself, as in being “at peace” in one’s own mind, as found in European references from c.1200. The early English term is also used in the sense of “quiet”, reflecting calm, serene, and meditative approaches to family or group relationships that avoid quarreling and seek tranquility — an absence of disturbance or agitation.

In many languages, the word for peace is also used as a greeting or a farewell, for example the Hawaiian word Aloha, as well as the Arabic word salaam. In English the word peace is occasionally used as a farewell, especially for the dead, as in the phrase rest in peace.

“World peace must develop from inner peace. Peace is not just mere absence of violence. Peace is, I think, the manifestation of human compassion.”  Dalai Lama XIV

“For a day, just for one day, Talk about that which disturbs no one
And bring some peace into your Beautiful eyes.”  Sweet Poems of Hafiz

“Peace begins with a smile..” Mother Theresa

“You cannot find peace by avoiding life.” Virginia Wolf

“If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there’d be peace.” John Lennon

“Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.” Albert Einstein

“If someone thinks that peace and love are just a cliche that must have been left behind in the 60s, that’s a problem. Peace and love are eternal.” John Lennon

“The day the power of love overrules the love of power, the world will know peace.” Mahatma Gandhi

“Peace comes from within.  Do not seek it without.” Gautama Buddha

“You have peace,” the old woman said, “when you make it with yourself.” The Five People you Meet in Heaven

 

 

“The Simple Path ,Silence is Prayer, Prayer is Faith, Faith is Love, Love is Service,The Fruit of Service is Peace”  Mother Theresa

“Until he extends the circle of his compassion to all living things, man will not himself find peace.” Albert Schweitzer

“It is not enough to win a war; it is more important to organize the peace.” Aristotle

“As long as Man continues to be the ruthless destroyer of lower living beings, he will never know health or peace. For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love.” Pythagoras

“You find peace not by rearranging the circumstances of your life, but by realizing who you are at the deepest level.” Eckhart Tolle

“If you love me as you say you do,’ she whispered, ‘make it so that I am at peace.” Leo Tolstoy -Anna Karenina

“Peace is the only battle worth waging.” Albert Camus

“How come we play war and not peace?” “Too few role models.” Bill Watterson

“Instead of hating the people you think are war-makers, hate the appetites and disorder in your own soul, which are the causes of war. If you love peace, then hate injustice, hate tyranny, hate greed – but hate these things in yourself, not in another.” Thomas Merton

“The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that its center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.” Black Elk

“Better than a thousand hollow words is one word that brings peace.” Gautama Buddha

“Peace is the number one beautiful ornament you can wear, I really believe that. They say you should always wear a smile, but I don’t believe that you should “always” wear a smile, seriously, you’re going to look stupid! But peace, you should always carry peace within you, its the most beautifying thing you could ever have or do. Peace makes your heart beautiful and it makes you look beautiful, too. You want to have perfect physical posture when you stand, sit, and walk, and peace is the perfect posture of the soul, really. Try perfect posture outside as well as inside. Peace creates grace and grace gives peace.” C.JoyBell C

My Dear Friends,A few samples of what ‘Peace’ means to some individuals. For me, Peace is within, we strive to find it everywhere we go, we wish for it to be there as a reality for everyone, but ‘Peace’ is within everyone of us and unless we can find that inner peace then we cannot wish for there to be ‘Peace on Earth’ simply because to have World Peace, WE ALL NEED TO FIND IT, IN OURSELVES!

I wonder how often the word ‘Peace’ is spoken each day? Peace to you, Peace and Love, May your life be filled with Peace, May they Rest in Peace, Peace Be With You, What a Peaceful Day, etc

All I know is, I can find Peace within; and that allows me to try and promote this well kept secret to others, I know Peace can be found in meditation, I know Peace is available for everyone, all you have to do is ‘Want It and search inside, because your Soul is waiting to share with your physical body….

……Go on my friends and as John Lennon once said…

Give Peace A Chance J

Every Single Soul Blossoms in It’s Own Time and In It’s Own Way

Published 10/03/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

  
My Dear Friends,

I managed to get a VPN connection on my phone this morning so I thought I would take this wonderful opportunity to create a short post while I’m blessed with this connection and freedom 😄

Every Single Soul blossoms in it’s own time and in it’s own way! ….Wow, how true is that statement?

All through life we push and challenge ourselves…. Push to learn more, push to achieve more, push to earn more, push to have more….Then, for some, we realise for what! Why have we been pushing ourselves all through life? …We realise that our Soul is calling us back, back to its roots, we realise that all this ‘Stuff’ in our lives that we have worked so hard for is in fact just ‘Stuff’, and the real value to our lives is often still not found, so we set off on a journey of self discovery, ‘Who am I’? ‘Why am I here’? ‘What is my life’s purpose ‘? And for many, this leads to a spiritual awakening that often leads to much more. For me, this happened many years ago, brought on by a series of traumas in my life, death, infidelity, accidents, serious injuries, near death experiences, depression or what I thought was depression,but in fact was a deep spiritual awakening, then amazing connections to spiritual masters, Guru’s, different belief systems, ancient cultures and to meditation, channeling for the Ascended Masters and the realisation that this was the doing of my Soul, my Divine Self, calling me home, once more calling me into the light of all that I am 😄🙏🏻

But, during this journey of my own self discovery, I too have pushed myself, allowed my Ego Mind and Free Will to conjure up stories and allowed them to question my journey, to push me once again to challenge my inner self , to challenge my beliefs, to challenge the speed in which I move forward , always there to question and place doubts on my abilities and to try and put a stop to my awakening to all that I am!

My dear friends, I have no timeframe attached to my journey of self discovery, I have given myself in service to ‘Source’ to my Divine Higher Self and my life is full of joy, happiness is with me everyday and I give thanks for all that I am and all I have in my life, and I know that ‘Every Single Souls blossoms in it’s own time and in it’s own way, so, my dear friends, if you feel stuck, if you feel afraid , if you feel your journey of self discovery has hit a roadblock then never fear, all will be right for you when the Divine Timing is right for you🙏🏻

Namaste, with Love

Always

Channel from Lord Buddha

Published 25/02/2016 by inspiringyourspirit

My Dear Friends,

I visited the Jade Buddha Temple in Shanghai again yesterday morning, this is my local Buddhist Temple and one in which I visit regularly, say my prayers, give my offerings to the Buddha, to my family, ascended family, guides and masters.

On yesterdays visit after I had done my prostration prayers I stood and did a standing meditation in front of the Buddha and I asked him if he would honour me with his grace and channel through me and last night as I slept I received a visit by the Lord Buddha, here are some of his words from that channel.

Dear one, this is the Buddha that has stepped forth to you today, you came to me and asked for a connection to you and here I am. I will share with you today some of my thinking and offer you my support as you continue along your journey of self-discovery. I too set out on a journey of self discovery, I meditated as you do in the hope of finding myself and understanding impermanence, the cause of suffering and what brings happiness and peace to our hearts. During my journey I was joined by many others, this was not my intention; as my journey was my own journey, however these others were also following their own journey of self discovery so they joined me and formed a Sangha where we sat in circle as you do and meditated and contemplated upon our own journeys. It is; Dear One my thought that by creating a circle the collective consciousness and energy of that circle helps raise the frequencies of all within the collective, and enables each one to attain understanding earlier. We must however remember that no journey of self-discovery is alike and we will ascend at different times; as and when we are ready. There is no time limit Dear One and it may not happen within your physical lifetime, but it will happen through Samsara. Remember Dear One that nothing is permanent, everything in life is in a constant flow moving forward; never back, and it is important for you to understand this, because all that you see is not real, only a fabrication and story of what your ego mind tells you about that experience. Life as you see it is based upon how you act or react to each situation that is presented to you, if you choose to judge or act in anger, with hatred or fear then you will create a Karmic reaction that will stay with you and your reincarnations for ever more, so please Dear One choose to act with non-judgement, react or respond with love and compassion and always be open to receive love and compassion as you travel your pathway. I see Dear One that like so many others you seek answers, seek knowledge and seek happiness and love but also remember Dear One that ‘Life is in the being, not in the knowing’, so do not waste your life searching for what is already inside you Dear One, allow yourself to open fully to the light, give up your ego mind and submit to your Divine Will and offer yourself in service to source and you will find your peace and live your happiness.

Blessed Be All Beings, Blessed Be All Beings, Blessed Be All Beings.

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

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 Prayer At Christmas

Published 23/12/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

static1.squarespace.jpg

 

My Dear Friends,

At this time of year we are so busy with the commercialism of Christmas, chasing around like busy bees, spending all our hard earned money on things we probably don’t need, buying way, way too much food and either enjoying every moment of the festivities or for many of us cringing at the very thought of having to go through this again!

My dear teacher In’easa mabu Ishtar posted this wonderful article and prayer especially for Christmas, I do hope you like it?

Namaste with Love

Always

Mark

I firmly believe that Christmas time has been created so that we all have the potential to resolve a little of our karma and let go the old stories that keep us trapped in our past, limited in our future and not always present in our lives.

It is the perfect opportunity, as we come together with the group of souls who are our greatest teachers and mirrors on the journey. It is these souls who are are constant reminders of what we hold inside ourselves that needs to be brought into the light again. They also remind us of who and what we are.

And this Christmas is extra special because it falls right on a full moon, a full moon in the sign of Cancer. Cancer is the astrological sign that is all about emotions, families, love, caring, healing, mothers, children, hearth and home.

The last full moon to fall on Christmas Day was in 1977 and the next will be 2034. So all around the planet we are being given the perfect gift right now to let go the old, heal the past and open to the light in our hearts for our families and loved ones.

I am praying that all around the world in all communities we choose to open our hearts to this wonderful opportunity the Universe is giving us. Will you join me in this prayer? (See prayer below)

At this time of the year we often find ourselves face to face with our old stories from the past as we connect with our families and bloodlines. Many of these stories have remained dormant in our memories until we suddenly find ourselves sitting across from the mirror at the Christmas table.

Perhaps it is our elder brother that used to tease us and treat us like the younger sibling we were, yet how we hated this. Perhaps it is another sibling who bullied us unfairly and unwisely. Each story a trigger for the karma that sits inside of us telling us that we are not good enough or worthy enough.

Perhaps it is a painful memory of not being loved or supported as a child and we suddenly begin to revert to the unhappy or angry child we once were under the roof of our parent’s house.

Each time an old story arises we may become triggered and emotions we have not felt for the whole year may resurface. These emotions rise in us like  a volcano and, no matter what we may have promised ourselves that morning about not letting drunken Uncle Tommy upset us or Mum’s snide remarks about our weight get us riled up, we suddenly become overwhelmed by the feelings we have successfully managed to ignore or keep in check all year.

When this occurs we are suddenly back in the old stories of our past that come up again for us to look at.

Across the family Christmas table the energy cords of attachment are running like bright lines of light everywhere connecting each one of our family members and these energetic attachments cause us to go into reaction and response.

Yet as you sit with your families and loved ones this year I am going to ask you to remember the truth of who you are. Please remember that you are a divine being of light. You are not your old story. Please take a deep breath and open your heart and embrace your divine truth and not your illusion.

Let go your need to want to change this old story and create a different outcome – even now after all these years. The story is in the past, the experience is over. It is time to let it go. You are no longer living this experience again unless you are choosing to recreate it. You are no longer the child who feels unloved or lost, you no longer have to be the victim of someone else’s pain or projections.

Instead of trying to change the story or the person or persons involved in the story choose to let it go. Leave it in the past where it belongs. Do not bring it into the present where it does not belong.

If you are in reaction it is because you have never let the story go and you are still holding the consciousness you created in yourself when you responded to this experience. This is the karma you created. The cause is the experience – the effect is what you are still holding that you created in reaction to this experience. You cannot change the experience but you can change the effect.

The effect is the story you told yourself about yourself in reaction to this experience. So what story did you create about yourself when you had this experience? What did you tell yourself? It is this story that you need to let go of now.

Often the child will tell herself that she is not loved because her parents did not behave or act in a way that she wanted and expected. Therefore she told herself the story that she is not loved or loveable.

Perhaps when the child was bullied he told himself that he would never be strong enough to stand up to the bullies so he created the story he was weak and useless. Whenever this is mirrored to him he becomes very angry at himself and everyone else and may even become a bully himself in later years.

There are so many stories we create about who and what we are from our experiences, particularly when we are children. Yet these are not our truth today, unless we choose to believe the stories we created and repeat the them again and again.

Have you ever wondered why four siblings growing up in the same household with the same parents will have completely different versions of their childhood? It is because each soul comes in with different karma to resolve from past incarnations. This karma will drive them to create the stories they create that are unique to them because it each child has a different point of view of the same experience due to the karma they hold inside themselves.

Please try to remember that everyone is creating their own reality in each moment and this reality may be very different to your reality because even though we are all One we are also all unique with our own gifts and karma.

As you sit down with your family this year please try to see each person as a soul, a being of divine light, and not just as a personality. Each one of these beautiful souls has come to support you in some way, even if you may not like the way they are doing it.

Often it they are there to mirror back to you the karma that you hold deep inside you that needs to be resolved. They have come to remind you to let it go. Others have also come to mirror back to you your light. The question for you is are you willing and ready to open your heart to receive the gift they have come to offer to you?

Choose to open your heart and remember who you truly are this Christmas and take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to heal and resolve the past so you are free to live unencumbered in the now and create your future with peace, love and joy in your heart.

I offer this prayer out now to all souls. Please join me:

May we choose to open our hearts to our divine truth and let go our illusions
May we choose to see the divine light of each other’s hearts
May we accept that each being is a divine being of light
May we honor the divine light in each other and accept we are One together
May all pain and suffering be released now
May all old stories be released now
May all we hold that creates separation be forgiven and released now
May we choose to honor all beings and hold them in our hearts as One with us
May we be blessed with love and compassion and offer this to all we meet
We affirm that we are divine light
We affirm that we are divine love
We affirm that we are all divine children of God
Blessed be all beings on the Earth
Blessed be all beings on the Earth
Blessed be all beings on the Earth

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

Always

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

Published 10/12/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

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

My Dear Friends,

In the aftermath of the terrible terrorist attacks on Paris, our world is now, more so than even going into retaliation mode, hatred is back in full force, reprisal and revenge attacks will take place and once again innocent people will lose their lives. Now, I’m not for one minute saying that we should not take revenge for what has happened, and, on the other hand; I am not condoning such revenge either. To me, I feel that humanity has lost track of what’s important! We now see death and suffering as a norm, it’s in our news every day and until it directly affects us, our families, or friends or our community then we just turn a blind eye and get on with our lives only thinking about I, me!

Humanity,

humanity [hyoo-man-i-tee

noun, plural humanities.
1.

all human beings collectively; the human race; humankind.
2.

the quality or condition of being human; human nature.
3.

the quality of being humane; kindness; benevolence.
My Dear Freinds
This is what we have lost sight of.….‘All Human Beings, collectively; the human race; humankind’!
No one person, no one country, no one voice, no one religion, no one political power, no one control!!!!!!!!!!
Collectively, the human race!
And, until we get back on track and remember that we are ‘ONE HUMAN RACE’ and each person has a right to live, then we are ‘NEVER’ going to solve our problems and we will ‘NEVER’ see Peace on Earth!
Remember, we were all born into this world ‘INNOCENT’, we had no knowledge of race, religion or political party,’ we were one with all’, we were one with love, we were one with compassion, no hatred was in our hearts…We have become this way, we have learned how to hate, we have learned how to kill and most of the time it’s for the best interest of others!
So, please take a moment my Dear Friends to stop, to connect with your heart, to go within and connect with your soul and bring your new found love back to our world, stand up for peace, stand up for ‘HUMANITY’.
Blessings of Love, Peace and Compassion to you all, wherever you are on our planet 🙂
Namaste, with Love
Always
