Belief

Happy Sunday All,

(Posted 6th October – but hey, better late than never eh?)

The Polar Express

Last night (3rd October) I watched the ‘Polar Express.’ I love that film, but you know when you watch something and get a different message every time you watch it. Well, last night I got a very different message, a message, which seemed to speak to me right where I am living in this moment.

baby-216876_1280You see, I am about to travel and for some reason, though I need the break I am experiencing some trepidation. I don’t know why, but I feel unprepared and nervous about the prospect of spending time in a foreign county alone. It’s not the aloneness you understand, I’m very used to that, but I’m not quite sure what It is.

The Polar Express is about belief.

A boy begins to doubt Christmas and the existence of Father Christmas and so ends up on a train to the North Pole and experience a series of challenges that test him until he ends up believing.

Believing

face-636095_1280 It’s about belief…believing in something even though it may be something you cannot see, or touch. At one point the boy is walking long the roof of the train and there’s a snowstorm. He can’t see clearly. There’s snow in his eyes and wind trying to blow him of course, but he’s searching for his friend and he knows that’s the direction she went in, so despite not being able to see anything, half blind and with no surety that he will find his friend he keeps going.

You probably do not know, but I made a significant change to my life just a year ago and I have created a new life and a new way of serving that seems like the right path for me. It is not without it challenges and at a time when thinks seems particularly ‘sticky,’ this lesson seemed very timely.

So, as I am wont to do, I had to share the insight:

What I took from that is that even though you may have decided on a path, a course of action a desire or a wish to keep going, keep believing, keep moving forward.

You may not be able to see the result, just blurry light in the distance and a vague belief that there is something out there for you then, you need to keep feeling your way. Keep your hands stretched out front, keep moving in the direction that feels right for you.

Forward motion

forest-249029_150Though the movement beneath you is rocky and unstable and you have no true idea where you’ll end up, keep pressing forward.

Fog

Despite being blinded by the fog and blown off course by the biting North wind, he kept moving forward. His belief held firm and he KNEW he would win through, though there was no evidence in front of him.

Just one step at a time.

Once he comes through and reaches his goal the train guard (played by Tom Hanks), says to the boy, ‘Sometimes the only things worth believing in are the things you can’t see.’

japan-808989_1280The goals we create for ourselves are often blanketed in fog, a shadowy ‘something out there,’ that we sense, but can’t quite make see clearly.

I guess that sense is the intuition, the inner ‘knower.’ Our little boy trusted his inner know and kept moving towards his goal, he kept believing in what he couldn’t see and was rewarded with reaching his goal

So albeit a brief post this week as I prepare to travel, I hope you get the message to keep going.

Your future or vision may be foggy now and perhaps you can’t articulate it as eloquently as you’d like to, but TRUST and keep moving in the direction of your dreams.

Limitless

Happy Sunday everyone!

There are those days in your life that even when you’re in the moment you KNOW in your very cells that THIS MOMENT is one that is changing your life. You’re filled with fear and trepidation because you know you will never be the same again, but you have no idea how or why or what it all means…

Yesterday was such a day for me.

cropped-life-is-beautiful-905867_1280.jpgI’m talking about the fabulous Richard McCann & his transformative and I mean TRANSFORMATIVE, speaking Bootcamp!

I spent the day shaking! Literally shaking…unsteady on my feet every time I went back to my seat and crying with emotion. The energy in the room was palpable. Thick and hot and you just knew, something was ‘HAPPENING’

What yesterday taught me is that we are limitless.

Twelve people walked into a room, complete strangers. Each one of us nursing our individual anxieties, fears, and limiting beliefs and we walked out friends, and I do not use the term lightly, connected in a way that I have rarely experienced in my life before and expanded beyond what we could ever have imagined before we entered that room.

With each round of activities, the compassion and love grew. Each one of us holding a space so the very best of each of us could emerge and boy did we emerge!

superhero-534120_1280There’s a film called ‘Limitless.’ Starring Bradley Cooper. I really like this film. Anything that shows me how limitless we are and the power of the human spirit and abilities captivates me. Yet in this film Bradley has to use a powerful drug to access the limitless side of his nature and we learn that there are dire consequences to it’s extended use.

As yesterday unfolded there was none of the Hollywood glamour of people accessing their limitless potential, but just a beautifully soft, compassionate blossoming of it.

In the space of seven hours, I saw people transformed. YES! Transformed. It was the most beautiful sight to see. Some walked taller, some straighter, spoke louder, stood stronger and as I watched it all unfold I couldn’t help but marvel on how amazing we EACH & EVERY ONE of us is – Without exception.

Grow model - New shootWhen we allow ourselves to be tested, but we are encouraged, supported and loved, there is nothing… ABSOLUTELY NOTHING we cannot achieve!

The people I met yesterday had already achieved the most incredible things, come through the most testing of times and yet were humbly denying their magnificence and supporting one another to be even better, push through barriers and become even more expanded… cheering them on to their fullest, limitless potential.

I was truly bless yesterday and the angles were with us in that room, but what I want you to get, and REALLY get this, is that its in ALL of us.

Each of us has the capacity, talent and ability to reach for anything we wish and make it happen.

If the situation you are in, or the people around you are not conducive to you stepping into your limitless power and possibility, then Change IT!

But, more importantly…

Do not be afraid to reach out and ask for help.

It is our natural state to connect and be connected, it is in our DNA to be supportive.

woman-41891_1280So, for today, (Grandma-to-be-baby-shower-duties-call) I’m going to leave you here.

  • Do it now!
  • Hold someone’s hand and unlock their prison doors,
  • Unlock you own by asking for the help you need to step into the life you want to achieve
  • Take a risk
  • Challenge yourself
  • Be your BEST self

Access YOUR limitless potential!

I am indebted to the following people for being my Eath Angels yesterday up the sincerest and most loving gratitude to Yoen van Velzen, Angela Dowd, Christine Wragg, Emma, Eula, Corrina Lawrence, Farah, The beautiful Michael Brodie, Nick, Julie, Lisa & the masterful and inspirational Richard

Finding Family

Happy Sunday All,

This week I intended to give you the second instalment of ‘letting go a pathway to peace’ but the last few days have taught me a most valuable, indeed THE most valuable lesson and so today I’m sharing that here with you. Finding family is your key to being accepted for who you are and stepping into the light of your full being.
