Rain and Thunder storm Relaxation. Relax mind + body meditate to the rai...

Good Evening Everyone,

Sorry for the late posting.  Tonight I thought that we’d have a rest from the hard yakka.  So because I’m a Pisces and I love the rain, I thought I’d share this You Tube video with you all.  I find it so relaxing and thought you might too.

So put your feet up and your earplugs in and maybe even wrap up in a blanket, so you don’t get cold and wash away the worries of the day.

Now as I was listening to the rain falling, I was occasionally watching the odd leaf falling here and there.  I was visualising the rain, washing my soul, cleansing my spirit.  Washing away my worries and then filling me back up with clean rich revitalising crystal clear water. 

To you the rain might represent the tears that you have shed or the tears that are yet to come.  Release them and feel safe knowing that at the same time you are being renewed.  Let them flow like a river, carrying with it broken promises and withheld feelings of grief and loss. 

If you want to take it a step further you can say out loud the below statement.  Just insert your name and then the name of someone that you would like to either forgive or release from your life.

I _______________, forgive you __________________ for ___________________. 
I wish you had done ________________________, but you didn't and I now set you free.  (Source:  Louise Hay)

Continue to listen to the rain.  Let it wash away those last bits of lingering emotions.  Then finally let it refill your spirit.  Let it pour in much strength and love and compassion and healing with every single drop.  Then know in your heart you are strong and filled with much love that is very replenishing. 

And remember this!  American Indian’s are renown for their rain dances.  When asked about the secret of their rain dance.  They said there’s no secret, we just keep dancing until it rains.  So there my friends you have one of life’s deepest secrets!  Keep on dancing.

Until next time.  Stay deadly!

What a relief to release

Have you ever been on a roller coaster ride and been hanging on for grim death?

I find it amusing that some people actually get a kick out of repeatedly doing this to themselves.  Putting themselves in this predicament must give them pleasure after the momentary pain.  When you seriously think about it, I don’t know anyone who openly invites pain on a daily basis into their lives.  Why would they? 

Yet sometimes life is just like this roller coaster and we grab hold of something, anything to try and find some stable ground.  Sometimes we hang on longer than is required and even though the ride has stopped we often still haven’t released our grasp.

I specifically didn't say “let go” because to use the term suggests that it was something that was ours, therefore we need to hold on to it.  When in fact nothing in this world is ours.  We are just passing through it, as is everyone else and in fact every thing else too. 

Yes we love to gather things like bower-birds, attracted to bright colours and sparkling things that make us feel warm and fuzzy and happy.  But do they really bring you the pleasure that you imagined would occur in your fantasy world.  When in reality you have to find a place to house them, you have to dust them, clean them, move them, shine them and polish them up again when they no longer sparkle. 

They no longer bring the pleasure that once enticed you to bring them home to display like prized possession on your mantle piece.  Now you feel so attached that you can’t release them.  It’s like they have become part of you and help you distinguish who you are.  Without them you are nothing.  But is this really the truth?  Of course not, because if you finally decided that you wanted to release them then you could do just that, filled with love.  If you remind yourself that they were never yours and you were never their owner then you would happily release them to travel the next part of the journey. 

The minute you realize what a relief it is to release, you will no longer feel the need to continually collect, possess and obsess.   

So give yourself a gift and release what you no longer need in your life and set yourself free.

Until next time, stay deadly!  :)

Getting back on the horse!

If you've ever ridden a horse before, then I’ll guarantee that you've also fallen off.  How many of you feel as though life has bucked you off some times and you've just not known how to get back on the horse?

Well I guess that’s why it’s taken me a while to get back to writing my blog posts.  So this is me saying up front to you, I'm sorry.  I'm seeking your forgiveness and hoping that this is the start of something new and inspiring once again.  Hopefully we can all ride off into the sunset together.

So without playing my violin too much, I just wanted to acknowledge that yes life does get busy, stuff happens and sometimes no matter how positive you want to feel, sometimes nothing seems to be able to bring you back to that space you were, before you fell off the horse.

But who’s to say taking a break from life (or a task in life) is a good thing or a bad thing.  Only you know within yourself what you can manage and cope with and what needs to give way, so that you can keep travelling along the path of life.

Now even though when you’re sitting high up in the saddle and you are moving forward, as soon as you hit the ground, yes the world does stop for a moment.  Maybe things aren't moving as fast as you are used to or maybe you can’t get to where you want to go as fast as you’d planned, but the one thing for sure, is that life does still go on.

So next time your world seems to grind to a halt, instead of saying giddy up, maybe it’s time to rein it in and slow from a canter to a trot and then to a steady walking pace. 

You'll know when you're ready to get back on the horse and if not, I'm sure something in life will undoubtedly spur you on once again.
