As I was resting on my sofa and looking out of my living room window, I noticed wood pigeons building a nest.

I’ve seen them building nests over the years every year in a different hiding space. One was arranging the twigs that the other one was constantly bringing to it’s partner. When the nest is finished, they lay their eggs, then take turns in looking after them. When the eggs hatch, they take turns in feeding the young and themselves. Then they teach their young all of the life skills and watch them leave the nest, maybe never to see them again. And they keep on repeating the cycle year after year, for the rest of their lives.

That made me ask myself:

  • How come that birds never worry about their young after they’ve left?
  • How can they leave building a nest for the last minute?
  • How come that they don’t have supermarkets or plant their food, yet they always have as much as they need?
  • How can they not worry about the next day or the foreseeable future?
  • How come that they find time to sing every day? and many more questions.

I guess that’s why there are sayings like: “As free as a bird”, “As happy as a lark”, “Bird’s eye view”, “Birds of a feather”, a.s.o. I wasn’t the first person to notice that we can learn from our feathered friends.

Be as it may, animals seem to know and understand the cycles of nature and just go with the flow. They feel when a natural end to a situation has come and they simply accept the change. And live on happily, saluting the Sun every morning and singing it’s lullaby every evening. Meanwhile, us humans think that we know better and go to bed full of worry about the next day.

Who’s the cleverer in this game of life? Us or nature? I am betting on nature any time.

Something has been playing on my mind ever since I was told it. On the way to the airport, after a family visit, my mother said something. In the context of the type of a person that I am, she said:”You’re just a dreamer, you and people like you”.

Despite it being a matter of fact type of a comment, without any hidden intent, it got to me.

Is being a dreamer a bad thing? Is it really better to always just face the facts and deal with problems, people and situations as they arise? And what about dreaming big?

How many dreamers are out there right now? I would love to hear from you.

My dream world is a perfect version of my life, everything that I want, feel, that I am. There are no limits to what can happen, time and space do not apply. I am not judged, I don’t have to explain myself, or wait for something to happen. I just think of something and it’s there. Even if I keep thinking about the same thing, it always surprises me with a new way that it comes across. It’s always fresh and new.

Some would say it’s idealistic, unrealistic, a waste of time.

To me, I am happiest when I daydream. It is a peaceful, beautiful, non judgmental, all accepting, an unconditional world. My best ideas come from it. I am free to come and go as I like and stay as long as I feel inclined to.

If someone took my dreams away, they would take a huge part of me with them. And I would have to face this 3D world, the harsh reality, the everyday happenings, without my escape, my safe space, my cushion, my perfect world, my preferred situation.

No matter how good or bad my life seems to be, I can feel my dream world waiting for me, calling me to come back to it. It is gentle, safe, loving, patient, giving, bright, optimistic. It is that calm, safe space deep inside of me that I couldn’t be without. That daily experience is keeping me sane, filled with patience and hope. I dare to say that it feels like heaven. Unlike the “real”, everyday world.

No matter what people say, I will always be a dreamer. God created me a dreamer for a reason (Lady Gaga-I was born this way). And that is something that nobody can challenge without losing the argument.

Sending you lots of love and blessings,

Angela.

On 15th April, I went to a charitable fundraising event. Funds were collected for two charities. One was set up to help look after people with the Motor neurone disease.

A young man gave a speech which was about his brother who suffers from it. At one point he said (what was told to them by doctors) that it was incurable. That sounded hopeless, as if anyone with that disease of any age, background, heritage, ability, etc. has identical destiny. There is no cure and therefore, let us help those people feel as comfortable and looked after as possible, until their premature death.

Now, that struck a cord in me. I felt like standing up and saying that there is always hope. But I didn’t.Not just because it would embarrass my family who were also present, but because people weren’t prepared to hear it. And it wasn’t my pitch.

That reminded me of how and why I started researching into available alternatives to conventional healthcare. It was when my son was born and suffered from various food allergies and everything that accompanies them (digestive issues, skin problems, pain and discomfort). I had to switch my intuition on, as a newborn baby can only cry if something isn’t right. It was down to me to find out the cause and to find an alternative way so that they don’t suffer. Conventional doctors weren’t able to help much, so my journey into the word of alternative medicine and general clean lifestyle began. I ventured into a Chinese medicine practitioner’s office and never looked back. I also took a chance on Homeopathy, which also worked beautifully. I had to read all food labels when food shopping, in order to avoid the allergens. It was a minefield at the beginning, as I discovered that milk was in 80% of all products that we were buying, as well as eggs and soya.

Now that my son is old enough, he is continuously choosing what is best for him (he is a vegan now and has embraced the world of sport and general exercise).

Therefore, there is always hope and a way forward. I know that some conditions and diseases are more life threatening and serious. But, my son’s condition would have deteriorated and caused some of those serious diseases if we didn’t find what works for him. That is my point.

There is always a way. We just need to go within and let our inner feeling guide us.

Namaste.

There are so many energetic changes happening around us and inside of us every day.

We might be aware of the physical symptoms of these energetic shifts (like headaches, dizziness, nausea, tiredness, irritability,etc.).

In order to allow the old energy to be cleared and the new flow to be received,we have to keep grounded.

I have a morning routine that I practise as soon as I get out of bed.

I ask to be connected to my Earth Star chakra (it’s below our Base chakra) in the highest possible frequency for me throughout the day.

If at any point I feel disconnected, I stop and stand up. I then imagine that I am a tree with roots going from my feet deep under ground, all the way to the centre of the Earth. After a few seconds, you should feel the soles of your feet and wether you use the whole of the sole when standing. If not, adjust/shuffle your feet so that it feels like the whole of your sole is in contact with the floor. That should keep you in balance regardless of how busy you are that day.

With much love,

Angela.

Today has been a day full of powerful lessons/reminders.

I met up with someone that reminded me of the importance of having energetic boundaries.
No matter how much we care for someone, taking on their stress doesn’t help them and it certainly doesn’t help us.

I was born an empath and have always thought that empathising, i.e. tuning into someone’s feelings is what caring people do.
What that does is leave the recipient full of stress and worry about their friend, loved one, whoever it is.
After that particular meeting I was a shivering wreck.
Therefore, I need to WORK ON CREATING ENERGETIC BOUNDARIES.

Because I was out of alignment, two other people contacted me asking questions and favours of me. I could feel a build up of anxiety and had to stop all that I was doing and sit down in a meditation with a large Amethyst cluster.

Why do we put a pressure on ourselves to please others?

A lesson that has been with me for some time now is:

LET GO OF THE DESIRED OUTCOME.

I am working on integrating it.

 

What has also been emerging, as of yesterday is: RESPONSIBILITY for my thoughts and deeds.

In order to grow up, i.e. mature and to be able to manifest for my highest good, I need to accept the part that I play in creating my daily life.

And, at the same time, remembering the bigger picture (my contract and personal mission).

Today I decided to let go and let flow. I literally can’t take in any more information to process.

Too many updates, too much to let go- then take in and over and over again.

So, I am letting go completely. Whatever comes next is meant for me and I will deal with it when it comes. Not before.

Right now, I am hurting. My son has expressed his feelings about our family life and I have realised that I feel the same.

That has been our family life for years. Continue reading Let go and let flow
