When you’re blue and full of grey
A bit of colour can change your day.
Behind those tears you’re trying to hide
A rainbow is glowing and bursting with pride.
Your tears will heal and make you strong,
So look for that rainbow to help you along.
It smiles and it sings deep in your soul
It’s magical colours dance and cajole.
There’s a rainbow inside you
It’s not hard to find,
Just close your eyes and focus your mind.
A few days ago I read a simple but inspiring post on a blog that I discovered recently – Another 30 Thing That Make Me Happy! – and I was smiling while reading it because it reminded me of lots of things that make happy.
I think it’s an exercise everybody should do occasionally. No matter how bad your day is going, surely you can think of many things in your life that make you happy, or at least make you smile.
Write them down and allow yourself to smile your biggest smile and feel grateful for all that you have. Rather than fretting about the things you don’t have.
Try it and let me know how you get on!
Here are 30 Things That Make me Smile!
Tranquility in Poetry & Nature!
‘The Whisperings of Nature’ is an endearing little poetry book written by Caroline Cunningham. This is Caroline’s first published book of poetry and it represents her ‘stepping into the light’ with her written work.
I can’t help wonder about this person’s mental health! Robin (not her real name) is very active on a particular social media platform. She is not one of these people who uses social media to make life appear wonderful, (when in reality it’s pretty crap). No photoshopped selfies that make her look like a plastic version of herself. No happy family photos of days out, girlie nights in, her latest successful attempt at cooking a delicious gourmet dinner and no location check-ins! Continue reading
My name is Wendy and I’m here to tell you about how I went from being a cynical non-believer, to an accredited healer working in the NHS. I hope you enjoy my story and most of all, I hope some of you feel inspired by it.
Thirty six years ago my dearest friend Elaine lost her husband while he was carrying out his duties as a fireman. Rescuing a cat from a tree, would appear to be one of the easiest and straight forward tasks expected from a fireman, so it’s hard to imagine how it can result in him losing his life.
The Healing House – led by founder John Kenny and Gemma Grimes.
‘Angelic Thinking’ is a fantastic little book written by Angel Healer, Andrew Marmion. Andrew shares with his readers some very personal information about his life. He tells how he spent years living every day in mental agony because he was destructively attached to his emotional past.
By practicing the Mental Cleansing and Refurbishment Exercise, which is the main content of this book, and because of his friendship and guidance from the angels, he changed from being a victim to being a healthy self-loving positive person.
One of my favourite Christmas presents this year is this inspiring diary-journal that I received from my daughter who knew as soon as she seen it, that I’d love it. It’s similar to keeping a gratitude journal, but what I love most about this one, is its emphasis on the connection between the Irish ancient women and the moon.
My Book Reviews
Self-Help and Motivation.
‘Get Your Shit Together’ by Ruth Field, is a no-nonsense approach to sorting out all that stuff in your life that always has to get done in the end anyway. The crappy things that wreck your head and holds you back from doing all the things you WANT to do – the things you enjoy.
I was attracted to this book by the title and because it promised to show me how to get more things done in less time. I was having one of those muddled up weeks and nothing was getting done. The prescription for a simpler life is learning how to release your ‘inner bitch’ (apparently, we all have one) and become a fearless superwoman.
It urges you to take a good hard look at how you deal with life’s challenges and unexpected events. And just as importantly, the simple stuff that some of us turn into problems by not dealing with them early on. By her tough talking attitude, Ruth Field will have you shaking in your boots! If you have even a hint of laziness in your bones, she’ll shame you into getting off your butt and just doing whatever it is you whinge about never being able to do. She doesn’t listen to excuses folks, and it’s hard not to agree with a lot of what she writes! There are various little exercises throughout the book that can help you organise your time and get motivated. Don’t skip the very valuable exercise on page 148!
A big hello to you all and a special thank you to Gloria for inviting me as a guest blogger. I’m bowled over by the kindness and support I’ve received from people in the Holistic field.
I’ve certainly had an adventurous life so far – it’s been anything but boring, something I appreciate, as I dislike drudgery or monotony.
The angels have always figured in my life since I was a child. I was fascinated by their otherworldliness, gentleness, kindness and sense of humour.
However, it was as an adult that things began to take off. I had the odd experience of them when I was in the Franciscans for several years. One time I awoke to see two pillars of light at the bottom of my bed. They were both golden or yellow in colour but one was thicker than the other. I instinctively knew they were my angels and said hello to them before falling back to sleep.
