The Pendulum Swings : Accepting & Appreciating Your ‘Negative’ Traits

Are you bossy? Controlling? Manipulative? Arrogant? Patronising? Sarcastic? Naughty? Rebellious?..   When you beat yourself up for these qualities did you know that you may be imposing limits on who you are?   Have you considered that certain personality traits seen as flaws or weaknesses simply require your loving acceptance? Have you ever met a person who doesn’t give a damn what anybody else thinks of them? ‘Flaws’ and all?…

Painting My World – Looking Out The Window At The Canvas Of Life

From Starbright Creations (copyright2011) Do you realise how much you paint this life you live? While I followed the law of attraction, create your reality, for a long time, nothing has come close to explaining the meaning of life until recently. As I mentioned in my blog entry  ‘On Being A Victim – The Larger Perspective’, this reality of form is an illusion of the senses. The picture is far wider, far bigger…

Angels, Guides & Ascended Masters – An Illusion

    This post was inspired by Matt Khan (see Unmasking the Veil). His video on You Tube made me consider the  spiritual experiences I had over 10 years ago in more depth. I Saw An Angel, Spirit Guide and Ascended Master Merge Into One  When I was fairly new to spirit and psychic experiences I was practising a lot of Reiki (Reiki is said to be a Japanese form of…

On Being A Victim – A Larger Perspective

This morning I had some old drama creep into my mind, and I ran the train of thought until I was in panic mode. I won’t go into details but it really put things into perspective regarding the bigger picture of life.   None of us are victims – we are not powerless to circumstances – we are not dis-empowered by people ‘out there’.   No road is available to us unless…

Are You Ready To Celebrate The New Year At Halloween?

Lately I have been exploring more ancient practices like Wicca and also investigating the reason we celebrate certain times of the year. Many celebrations in the West appear to revolve around Christianity, yet mask many ancient Pagan holidays that have been going a lot longer and then of course I was pondering New Year. Since connecting more with the seasons and flowing with nature lately I am performing rituals and…

A Fear Of Dying

It is said the fear of dying is behind all fears and it probably is. Yet for ‘me’ it’s not so much a fear of dying but more a fear of not living. I am writing this blog entry to objectify a rather unpleasant series of dreams I had last night. I dream very vividly, write them down and interpret them. This series felt like I needed to get them…

Looking Deeper Than Outward Appearances

“…If you penetrate to the core of your existence you can see through the outer show of others. By presenting yourself as you really are, you can make them aware of the process you have been through, so they no longer have to hide themselves from you.”    Changing Line 6 – The IChing – Frits Blok   Last night I had some thoughts show up about trust and how…

Consumerism And The Recession

So how did it get to this? Where people fill gaps where love could be? With the next Iphone, Ipad, designer clothes and labels galore? When did consumerism become the source of well-being people are looking for?   I know many people struggling with this recession and I know it is tough going for many people, but I see it as a huge wake-up call to get our priorities right.…

Do You Still Have The Explorers Heart?

This week I realised my lovely ego was attempting to get me to run, leap and jump into the future me. It wanted me to be beyond where I was in that moment, to fly with creativity before I have my wings, and I listened for a little while. I asked myself do I want to be a ‘professional’ artist, right now? Sell my work.   OH YES! my ego…

Can You Be Happy Without Money?

Can we, as humans in the West, be happy without money? Can I be happy without all the ‘stuff’? It’s fairly easy to moan and complain about a lack of money but sometimes money is what money is. We either have it or we don’t. We may have a lot, none or some. Many people in the world are addicted to affluence, it is hard to get out of that…
