Under Pressure, A Musical Gem!

Published 11/11/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

My Dear Friends,

I came across this masterpiece this morning, a A-Capella version of ‘Under Pressure’ recorded by David Bowie and Freddie Mercury in 1981.

‘Why can’t we give love a chance?

Because Love is such an old fashioned word

And Love dares you to care for the people on the edge of the light and love dares you to care for ourselves!

Under Pressure, Under Pressure, Under Pressure’!

Wonderful vocals, wonderful words.

Please turn up the volume and enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

Namaste with Love

Is Your Ego Mind Controlling your Life?

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….. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ …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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a wonderful weekend my friends ๐Ÿ™‚

Revolution of Love

Published 05/11/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

My Dear Friends,

Please take a few minutes out of your busy and hectic schedule to watch this wonderful short video by Marianne Williamson, and although this video was written by an American for an American audience, the video is certainly pertinent for all countries across the globe. Yes, our world is slowly changing, we are standing up and taking notice of what is happening in and to our world and WE CAN all make a difference and help this change happen quicker.

Enjoy,

Namaste with Love

My Dear Friends,

A Kind Gesture…..What does that mean?

…….. It will mean different things to each and every one of us….

A smile is a good place to start, it costs you nothing but it can bring joy to the receiver ๐Ÿ™‚

A Hug goes a long way and almost certainly brings a feeling of love, caring and support to the receiver ๐Ÿ™‚

A helping hand…maybe something simple as carrying the heavy shopping bags for a person at the grocery store, cleaning the windows or cutting the lawn for an elderly neighbour….

Giving a bag of essentials to a homeless person, not always money….but a toothbrush, toothpaste, some gloves, some soap, a small towel, sanitary towels, some socks an old jumper, a warm hat…anything is good ๐Ÿ™‚

Just being there for someone…..no talking…just listening ๐Ÿ™‚

I hope you can hold out you hands to someone this weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

Namaste, with Love

My Dear Friends,

How often do you measure yourself?…..

We think we are too fat, too thin,

Too tall, too short,

Hair to short or too long,

Face too long, or too round,

Too poor, not smart enough, single, gay, disabled, black brown, yellow, etc etc….

But how often do you stop, think….. and realise….

How much your friends and family love you?…And..

How amazing you really are?

Never, Never Forget……You Are Perfect!….

You Are Perfect, Just The Way You Are…..

You Are You, You Are Special…..

And My Dear Friends, You Are Loved ๐Ÿ™‚

Blessings to you all for a wonderful weekend….Stop…Think….And…Remember…

You Are Perfect!

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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,ย miscellaneousย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

The Meaning Of Life Lies Within!

Published 15/10/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

12006607_960209707357935_8167710561407859197_o

My Dear Friends,

We humans are constantly searching for love and happiness, through friends, relationships, partnerships, marriage and the birth of our children, but we find it so hard to find that love, and that happiness!. Love as we know it comes and it goes like the changes in the tides of the ocean, so we keep on searching, hoping and wishing our lives away! We are all born with love in our hearts, but we learn to fear others at a very early age and keep them at a distance through the programming we receive from our families, friends and relationships. Our journey now and to realise the love that is always there within our hearts is to unlearn all those fears and prejudices we have been programmed to believe, to learn how to control our Ego Minds and to re-awaken the love within. ย For Love is the essential reality and our purpose on this Earth, we need to be consciously aware of its presence within, we need to use its love on ourselves and love the joy and happiness that that self love brings to our lives, and we need to share that love with all beings here on Earth, for this is the true meaning of life.

Love Is Everything!

Creating A New World

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Look deeply inside and connect with the soul

My Dear Friends,

If only!

As the old saying goes ‘Beauty is only skin deep’ and it is oh so true. If only we could peel back the outer layer of everyone we meet and connect directly with their heart and their soul, we would make perfect connections and see the real person inside the human cover.

Connecting heart to heart and soul to soul would teach us so much and our understanding re the needs and wishes of the other person would not be tainted with what we see through our very ‘Ego centric eyes’, he/she is handsome, beautiful, fat, thin, ugly, pretty, smart, scruffy, black, white, yellow, brown, short, tall, blond, brunette, bald, etc, we would truly feel the other person and connect as connections should be made, deeply through the heart and to the soul. Our world, I am sure would be a happier place, a more peaceful place. There would and always will be differences of opinion I’m sure, misunderstandings, cross cultural differences of some sort but I do feel that all in all, our lives, our communications and the relationships forged would be better and stronger than they are now.

Food for thought my friends, food for thought!

Choose Happiness, because it makes you feel Alive!

Published 02/10/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

431315_434631659943527_965091303_n

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Namaste, with Love

The Divine is present in Everyone

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 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 ย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Namaste, with Love

The Heart and The Mind

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 toย 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.ย meditate and pray for peace.

I pray for that day, the day that everyone wakes up and has at least 1 full day of just being grateful for everything, I certainly think if we could have a ‘ I’m Grateful for Everything In My Life Day’ then we may just start to open our eyes to what we have in our lives instead of worrying about what we don’t have and what we think we need!

Today We Pray For The Victims of Domestic Abuse

Published 31/08/2015 by inspiringyourspirit

11822316_949403748450472_7165540744611018447_n

My Dear Friends,

Domestic abuse, most often brushed under the carpet, locked behind the doors of the home, never spoken about, hidden behind shaking smiles in the hope that one day it will be ok and everything will go back to the time before the abuse started to happen!….

Unfortunately, in most cases, the abuse never stops, in most cases the abuse escalates to even higher levels, often the abuse moves over from one family member to others and sometimes even continues across generations, when the abused become the abuser !

Today, I pray for all the victims of abuse. Abuse can come in many forms, physical abuse, mental abuse, sexual abuse, confinement abuse etc.

No one, No one deserves to be abused!

No one should be treated without respect!

No one should have to live in fear!

No one……No one.

If you are in a situation of abuse, then its time to speak out…..

If you know someone who is abusing others then it’s time for you to speak out….

If you know someone who is being abused, then it’s time for you to speak out….

Let’s make this world a better place for all to live, without the fear, without the pain….living as we all should, living with love and happiness!

Namaste with Love

Always
