REJOICE IN THE JOY

Life is a gift and I am trying to make the most of every opportunity to enjoy it. But Ive been feeling a bit up and down like a yo-yo as the date comes ever closer to my son emigrating to Oz with his partner on 24th September. This Saturday (27th August) was definitely one of the highs.  My niece was getting married in Boxmoor, Hemel Hempstead at the Church I sang in as a chorister aged about 11. I thought we were going to be lucky with the weather as the sun shone when I awoke – the previous day it had been raining vociferously and torrentially all day. We arrived and the sun was shining, everyone was looking happy and uplifted, after all it is a pleasure and joy to take part in a couple’s celebration of their love.  I wandered round asking family members to pose in different combination as I knew this was my last chance of us all being together for a long time and wanted to capture the joyous smiles for eternity.

 

Everyone obliged me and I managed to get all the combinations bar one that I wanted as the rain kept intervening (my ex with our two gorgeous daughters – yes I am biased). Even the rain didn’t dispel the cheerful disposition of everyone as we all took refuge in the Church or Boxmoor Lodge the reception venue. The day passed by without any hitches other than my tiny grand-daughter who loved her ‘princess’ bridesmaids dress but wasn’t always a smiley bunny for the photographer as she is shy.  However, Grace became braver later and chatted away. I was so proud of her and Josh as they are only three and nineteen months respectively and they behaved impeccably especially being the only children there. The formalities of speeches, cake cutting and first dance been carried out, it was time for the dancing and the little ones to go home to bed.  The floor was empty so my daughter Kelly and my two future daughters in laws Helen & Hannah and I decided to liven things up a bit… we felt sorry for the DJ or was that what we told ourselves. Anyway we had a thoroughly good time and it did encourage others to venture up eventually. 

 

I really enjoyed myself talking and laughing with my children, catching up with my ex husband and his family. So although I had a few wistful moments in the Church when the vows were taken (I was with my ex husband for 32 years) fortunately it was with fondness and a tinge of sadness that it hadn’t worked out ‘until death do us part’. But it was lovely that we were able to sit and chat amicably with ease and comfort. It showed me just how much I had grown over the grieving period of loss  and that I could finally and happily engage with him without any tears. I was pleased for the good times we had and the wonderful children we had created in our loving times together.  I am so glad that I have never held anger or bitterness at the outcome of being the one who was ‘left’ and was grown up enough to realise that everyone deserves to be happy and I have always wished him well and even secretly thanked him for the revelations I have learnt about myself since the divorce.  There always is a silver lining although at times it is more difficult to find.

 

The good news is that some of us will be flying out in a years’ time to Matt & Hannah’s wedding in Brisbane which will be a great reunion and celebration – another joyous occasion as a focus (unfortunately my granddaughter Grace will have just started ‘real’ school and so my daughter and her family won’t be there – we all do what is best for our children and as a shy little one it is more sensible for her to integrate with the other children and get a good start.) I am only human so I do have the odd tear or two at the thought of Matt being so far away but I know that we did well to bring up a well rounded, adventurous and loving child who follows his heart and instinct.  Skype of course will help us to keep in contact which is a great tool. 

 

So I am rejoicing on all the wonderful aspects of my life and not dwelling on the challenges. I feel so full of love for all my wonderful family and friends and say thanks everyday for them. We only have now and so maximise this time with fun and gratitude.  I am truly blessed!

Enjoy Your Life

Wow! What a wonderful time I’v e had in the US. First I was in Arizona for a week experiencing the energies of the vortexes in Sedonna which were amazing. At Bell Rock we had a peace pipe ceremony with Jeannie who is half Native American Indian followed by a meditation and Sequoia aromatherpy oil reading.  During the week we visited the Native American Indian museum, meditated at the Chapel with a huge crystal blessed by John of God in Brazil, we also participated in a Native American Indian campfire ceremony and visited the Grand Canyon.

One thing surprised me was how overcome with emotion I became once we got onto the Navajo Indian reservation. Tears started to stream down my face and I wondered why because I hadn’t realised where we were. When I realised we were on the reservation I thought well that’s interesting perhaps its a past life experience or my being in tune with all the heartache suffered by the Ancestors.  Arriving at the Grand Canyon I was so full of emotion I just sobbed.  It was quite weird in a way because the energies and emotions I experienced far outweighed those of the vortexes.  I realised that although I had only booked onto this trip at the last minute it was obv iously something I was meant to do and I am so glad I listened to my intuition. On the reservation I purchased some Native American instruments including rattles and a cedar wood flute inlaid with turquoise crystal in the note of F.  It sounds lovely and I know need to learn how to play it properly (the great thing is that it’s really intuitive so I don’t have to read music to play).

After Arizona I flew to Colorado where I went to the Festival of Englightenment which had many inspiring speakers and fabulous attendees. Everywhere I went everyone was helpful and kind (it always pays to be open minded and not take on others ideas of what Americans are like eg brash, loud and arrogant).  It was like a big family/community of spiritual people all coming to learn and share ideas.  I saw the three people I wished to see such aas Mahendra Kumar Trivedi (Guruji) and had a blessing, Joel Young (UK) and learned about NPa and Panache Desai (US) who says we are all perfect as we are and should do things because we want to. There were others who were also very good such as Howard Martin from Institute of Heart Math, in fact too many to list here.  We had opening ceremonies in the morning to set the Intention for the day with poems, affirmations and songs and the closing ceremonies were in a similar vein. 

The views were outstanding from the red rock mountains in Sedonna (Arizona)to the snow capped peaks in Estes Park (Colorado)with elks and squirrels out and about (the odd bear in the distance).  I felt totally blessed to be in the space of serenity and bliss with lovely people and glorious views.  I had blessings and healings as well as taking plenty of notes from the seminars. 

 The over riding message is how important our emotions are as our guidance system to help us to follow our intuition, to love ourselves as much as we do our best friend or partner, to acknowledge our emotions and sit with the negative ones because once you accept them they will lessen and dissolve and to feel as positive as possible. Scientific research indicates that when we are feeling good we  transmit good vibrations which other people around us can feel too (often they will entrain to the stronger emotion). Science shows that this doesn’t just happen in our local space that whatever the majority of people on earth feel affects our world an its surrounding atmospheres. I was shown graphs of how the world was feeling at 9/11 and Princess Diana’s death and it was quite amazing to note that the peak of emotion started to build ‘just before’ the tragedies occured as if somewhere inside us we knew that a terrible upsetting event was about to occur and responded accordingly.  (for more info contact Institute of Heart Math).

Having had such a fabulous time I am just about getting back into the swing of things… I didn’t feel any jetlag on the way out and just missed a nights sleep but returning it has taken me a week to recuperate (I forgot to do my jetlag EFT protocol which has helped me previously).  That’s taught me a useful lesson (I am human and walk my talk most of the time but as I had to run for connecting flights etc I forgot) to remember to do jetlag protocol everytime I travel.

In summary Live Life to the full! Love is all there is so love yourself and share it with others – this is all we have to do to help heal ourselves and the planet.

Friendship & Family

I was in bed this morning reflecting on the awesome retreat I returned from yesterday evening, where I met some lovely people and had an incredible spiritual experience. I opened the curtains and the sun beckoned me from my bed to welcome me on my birthday to re-join the world. 

I have received many wonderful wishes via cards, facebook, phone calls & texts and I feel sooo blessed. I really am a lucky duck because I am having a birthday week with plans to celebrate with friends and family up until end of the weekend. I shall be placing my gratitude in a prayer later today. When feeling gratitude one has positive feelings which then attracts more positivity to you thus making your life even happier. If you prefer you can write down things to be grateful for instead of praying.

I have always known that people are a big source of joy in life because I love spending fun and chill out time with those I love.  I realise that I am lucky because I understand this and prioritise my life so that I make time to keep in contact with friends and family to enjoy experiences and make happy memories.  I see so many people rushing around the world trying to ‘do’ so much and fit everything in. They have forgotten to factor in fun, which is a soulful experience.  We are holistic beings and it’s important to take care of our mind, body and soul.  What better excuse to enjoy yourself with people you love knowing that you are having fun as well as raising your positive vibrations, which in the long term also creates longevity. Remember, we are human ‘beings’ not human ‘doings’ so take time to relax and enjoy!!

Love, light & laughter,

Unity & Compassion

The natural disasters that are occuring more frequently around the world are assisting in us being compassionate for others living in amidst the pain and chaos, highlighting the fact that we are all One – in other words reminding us of our Unity Consciousness.

It allows us the opportunity to sending healing and love throughout the world - regardless of race, creed, political beliefs, religion or anything else that has been divisive in the past.  This natural selection process is Mother Earth’s way of recycling and renewing herself.  The good souls who have been selected to pass over ‘signed up’ before they came to the Earth plane to take away negative aspects of humankinds karma, so that those of us remaining will be able to ascend with the Shift as clearer vessels.  What a wonderful deed they have done for us all!

However as humans, with our feelings and emotions many are suffering and grieving their losses, so I implore all of you reading this to send healing & love to everyone worldwide who is grieving the loss of loved ones.  Also remember to say ‘thank you’ because you are alive and well, able to enjoy the sunny day, hear the birds sing and to be with your loved ones here on this physical planet we call Earth. Gratitude helps us to keep our vibrations on a positive level so that we attract more good experiences towards us to help us move forward and ascend. It is no good getting too caught up in the pain and loss just creating more negativity so sending healing and thanks is a wonderful way of doing ‘your bit’ for others. When we keep our vibrations high we help others to resonate at this higher level which ensures that more and more we are growing and healing as a collective. 

I am sending love, light and laughter throughout the World, Galaxy and Universe to each and every sentient being.

Lots of Love & Healing,

Dee xx

Divorce debate

I was invited onto the radio BBC 3 Counties to give my views as a Child Therapist on whether parents should stay together for the sake of the children. As a product of parents who stayed together but eventually divorced, I believe its best that they separate so that kids live in a happier environment. Instead of divorce annual renewal of marriage licences as an alternative thought! Read the rest of this entry »
