Invictus Games–My Tribute.

invictus-banner-4

 

After watching much of the Invictus Games over the past few days I have been in awe of these men and women who have shown such courage and determination in overcoming their tragic circumstances. Many of their stories brought tears to my eyes. Not only have they had to overcome their physical injuries, but they and others who have suffered such trauma have had to over come their mental barriers which often can take more healing than their broken bodies..

Turning our lives around after such an experience is often hard..

Sport has brought many of them back from their lonely ordeal of recovery.. Being part of a Team, encouraging and pulling each other up when things get tough is what unifies and brings  I AM into focus..

I couldn’t sleep the other night and wrote this Poem in Tribute to ALL those who have taken part, and those who have helped them to get to the point.. You are all truly Invictus ..

Invictus

 

I see your spirit riding high

Every challenge you meet you pass on by

You’ve pulled yourselves up within your hearts

Conquering obstacles right from the start

~

At times the odds were not stacked in your favour

But the I AM Will Power you have savoured

There must have been times when you felt so low

But your determination, True Grit is what you show.

~

Let us not forget your sacrifice

As those who rule roll the dice

In Games of War that snuff out life

To cause such suffering, grief and strife

~

Pride and admiration I have for your spirit

Invictus Hero’s each pushing your limits

All of you have come through so much

In Victory your medals to clutch

~

But Winners you are without a medal to hold

Be proud of the challenge to which you rose

You have connected to the I AM that we all are

And No Limits restricts the Light of a Star…

Well done to all..

An affirmation..

“ I place no limits and no restrictions on all that I intend to accomplish from here on in”

Blessings

~Sue~

A Letter from My heart to yours..

Dear Friends,

Where does one’s thoughts start as you try to make sense of the world?.. You can’t. All you can try to do is make sense of your own. And even that at times is hard to fathom.

I search my heart and often the tears will flow for no reason, other than such sadness sweeps through me at what we are doing to ourselves.

I pull myself up and give myself a good talking to.. Oh often!.. If you were a fly on the wall will you hear me talking away to myself. I am so blessed, very much so with the love of family, and try to send out my positive vibes to help add some Healing and peace to the world..

Is it the world’s tears I feel, or am I still shedding the layers of my own emotions? As I peel them off one by one.. Like the onion each layer releases its own toxins as my eyes sting from the injustices, the abuse, the suffering of many, the hurts of wounds unseen, I seem to take all to heart.. I cry inwardly within my moments of empathy for all whom I hear crying along with me.. Sometimes I wish I were not so sensitive, but I cannot and do not wish to change that what I am. ME.

And yet I also know all too well, that adding my tears solves nothing. It is only adding to the mixture of sorrow.. And I only want to add love and Peace to help bring about our own Humanities healing…

So I try to detach.. and often I am successful, I busy myself doing the things I love doing, painting, writing poetry, reading, Meditation, Qi Gong, gardening, playing with my granddaughter..

This month has been perhaps one of the hardest months ever for me. Perhaps it’s because I made the decision to retire.. We humans like to think we are in control don’t we?, The emotions I feel I cannot describe, as so many churn within my being. This decision took a Big trust in the Universe to go along with what I know felt right.. And I trust in its plan… and am ready to go along with the flow..And this step is a big one for me to take, and now it’s taken, I take the leap of faith to change.

We all Fear Change, mainly because we are treading upon uncharted waters.. We doubt and we want security… Trusting in something unseen and not tried is for many what holds them from making changes.. as they hang onto what they know… Much like the world right now, as we hang onto the old systems, the old ways, while all the while many are craving to break free of their constraints, as many are tied into the systems that hold them in debt that keeps them enslaved into the treadmill of toil… Life was never meant to be like this… Take a look around you.. Are you free?

I know I have my guides guarding my back, nudging me along, I just need to have more faith in me, so as if to let me know I am on the right path Synchronicities have already been showing up, I hope to explain about those at a later date.

I am writing from my heart as Its time to take a short break. I want this week to paint more.. and to just reflect and meditate as I allow my own inner healing to connect..

I thank you all for your kind and loving support.. and will be back to visit with my loyal friends shortly. Much love.. 

Love and Blessings

Sue

It is up to YOU to make a difference!.

 

Are we ready to Shift our ways of being?

Are we going to change our stories?

Are we going to Change the world of Fear? 

“The Secret to Change is not Fighting the Old, But finding the Power to fight for the New ” 

 Lots of  negative stories around our world at the moment, the fight I speak of is not physical.. It all starts within our own minds.. So send out your Peace, create by example of caring, do not get embroiled in anger or take sides.

If we are to have true peace in the world, we must first find it within ourselves.

When we  look inside ourselves for the meaning of peace, we will begin to understand  it has always been  difficult to come by. This in itself will enable us to be compassionate toward the many people in the world who find themselves caught up in conflicts both personal and worldwide.

We each need to create that peaceful centre within, but because we are human we also feel the pull in the opposite direction—the desire to defend ourselves, to keep what we feel belongs to us, to protect our loved ones and our cherished ideals, and the anger we feel when threatened.  These are natural instincts each of us have..

This awareness is important because we cannot truly know peace until we understand the many tendencies and passions that threaten our ability to find it.

Peace necessarily includes, even as it transcends, all of our primal energy, much of which has been expressed in ways that contradict peace.

Out of Chaos comes Clarity.. 

Learning to control our anger and emotions is  perhaps the most difficult part for many of us, because we want so much to disown the negative aspects of our humanity.

Many of us have gone through times of hurts and turmoil, but we have emerged stronger through those experiences..

The world now is also going through a Shift where Chaos seems to be pulling so much apart.. But the old ways of being are being torn down. and people are reacting and speaking out..

 True peace begins with a willingness to take responsibility for our humanity so that we might ultimately transform it in the light of our love..

We but need to create by example of our own actions.

~Peacefully~

Thank you for reading..

To Believe ~ in a Better World

Children for Peace

Standing on the edge of outer space

Have you ever felt yourself in this place?

Alone and yet surrounded by stars

Women are from Venus and men are from Mars.

You look at the world and want to put right

All the wrongs of man, to stop the fights-

Of Nations, whose turmoil is beyond our control,

To stop all the suffering, and end the death toll.

And yet you’re but a spec, just standing on the edge

But the yearning inside me has become more than a pledge.

For to help make a difference is what I do seek

To help and encourage, and to show we’re not weak.

But how can I change the World and her wars?

We first must look within, and look at Universal Laws.

To realise that to change, we must start with our self.

Understanding Love and Compassion is our true wealth.

That to care for each other regardless of our creed

For you cannot gather Gold, and to your children feed.

But alone I stand, just a speck of cosmic dust.

But united together we can reach out and we must-

Succeed in our endeavours to create a better land

For our children’s sake, let’s take each other’s hand.

Unite in one voice that calls out for Peace

I believe we can each make a difference

No longer can we show indifference

We need to Believe in a Better World .

The poem above I wrote in 2008, although I have omitted several verses and added the last sentence to fit in with this post.

Around our world right now Children are suffering..

Here is a beautiful Song Sung by Jackie Evancho  I had never heard of this remarkable young lady before this weekend, although I am sure those who reside in the USA have.

I have a blogging friend Surinder to thank for sharing this video with me.

I hope your hearts will be touched as deeply as mine as we each need

Which way are your Emotions Blowing the world winds?

The Buddhists say there are 8 winds,

There are Gain and Loss,

Praise and Ridicule

Credit and Blame,

and

Suffering and Joy.

If you aren’t aware of them they will blow you away like dry leaves in an Autumn Breeze

For example, When someone praises you, and that tastes sweet like Candy in your mouth you are blown away by the Winds of Praise.

~~~~~~~

One Day in ancient China a young man thought he had become enlightened.

He wrote a Poem to his Master about how he was not blown away by the 8 winds.

Then he sent it to his Master who lived three hundred miles up the Yangtze River

When his Master read the Poem he wrote

Fart, Fart

On the bottom of the poem and sent it back.

When the young man received his Masters reply and the more he read his reply the more he got upset.

At last he decided to visit his Master.

In those days, a three-hundred-mile trip up the Yangtze River was a very difficult journey

As soon as he arrived, he went straight to his Master’s temple,

Why did you write this?” he asked bowing.

“ Doesn’t the poem show that I am no longer blown about by the 8 winds?”

You say that you are no longer blown by the eight winds” replied the Master.

But two little Farts blew you all the way up here”..

I couldn’t resist this little story to make you think about the small things in life that often get us huffing and puffing.

It puts our lives in perspective when you see the Bigger Picture of what many are facing in our world today..

What really needs to change?

And which way are you making the Wind blow?

 

Healing From within~ Qi Gong

Quote

“ To breathe and know you are alive is wonderful.

Because you are alive, everything is possible.

 ( Thich Nhat Hanh,)

Recently I made the decision to retire from work.  I have over the past few months become very lax in my daily routine.. Of cleansing and meditating.. And to be honest my body is letting me know as certain aches and pains return within my muscles.. 

I know that I have to get my own house in order ..

When I became very ill several years ago I put myself though a daily ritual which gradually increased my health and fitness and mental alertness.. While I was ill I joined a Qi Gong class, me being me I was going to try anything to help my FMS. Fibromyalgia  And it worked along with positive thinking, affirmations and a belief in my own bodies ability to heal.. I went from Fatigue and not being able to walk far and full of pain, to walking a total of 8 miles in one stretch. This didn’t happen over night, but over several months of altering my life style and thinking processes and  practising Qi Gong.. I practise Spring Forest Qi Gong at home. I still have regular Acupuncture sessions each month which I can whole heartedly recommend.  

So why have I let myself back slide??? I guess because we become complaisant and I took on more work within my job role. Also sitting down and not exercising is as bad as overdoing things too, For muscles cease up and joints become stiff.   The stress of my job which has over a series of months built up to a pitch where once again my body has reminded me to slow down and take stock.. And led to my decision to spend quality time with family. Tension has a profound effect upon our muscles as we do not allow our body to relax as it should. We should also look at what we put into our bodies too. Diet has an important roll to play in our well-being.  

Qi Gong is very gentle exercises with controlled breathing techniques that help the body become more supple and the mind more active.. The breath when you breathe deeply oxygenates your blood stream more fully, and I needed that oxygen to flow to my muscle tissues. When I joined the class I was surprised that some ladies of 60 plus attended, and now low and behold I have also reached that magic six O..  and one bless her was in her late 70’s.. Even more surprising I found that the eldest lady could touch her toes and was once upon a time reliant on a Zimmer frame, and could hardly walk let alone touch her toes..

So Once again I will begin,, And start to heal from Within.

Qi Means ‘Breath’ and ‘Air’ as well as energy.

 

Gong Means ‘Work’, ‘Skill’, and achievement.

 

Qi Gong Therefore means ‘Energy Work’, ‘Skill of Breath’ or ‘Energy Skill’.

Qi Gong helps you to cultivate your energy, and thereby cultivate your health.

 

How does this work?

Each of the movements and breath along with visualisation techniques has meaning. During the exercise a message is delivered that invokes a reaction within the body. The body then responds by toning, strengthening or nourishing a specific area, or the entire metaphysical system.

Chinese medical philosophers uphold that perfect health is the result of Qi Flowing through out the body via a series of channels called the ‘Meridians’.

Ill health is believed to be caused by blockages within these meridians. The meridians have twenty major channels. Twelve, which are linked to the human organs, and eight whose function is to act as conductors, and reservoirs distributing energy. There are also many more minor channels linking up to this grid.

 

Regular practice of Qi Gong will help to improve neuromuscular co-ordination, fine motor control, and central balance, whilst the simultaneous breathing practice contributes to a relaxed state of body and mind.

 

I can speak from experience that it has helped greatly with my own muscular condition. And helped to get my mind back on track.   So why not give it a try.

 

I will leave you with this quote from

 Lao Tzu.

 

Thirty spokes together makes a wheel for a cart.

It is the empty space in the centre of the wheel

Which enables it to be used.

 

Mold Clay into a vessel;

it is the empty space within that creates the usefulness of the vessel.

 

Cut the doors and windows in a house;

It is the empty space inside that creates the usefulness of the house

 

Thus, what we have may be something substantial,

But its usefulness lies in the unoccupied empty space.

The substance of your body is enlivened by maintaining

the part of you that is unoccupied.

Blessings

A time to BE.. and I am Back!

Peace Of Mind

Its strange how one moment stretches into two

As time to BE over-takes  all you do

Where nothing is important as you brain closes down

From the turmoil of the world it was time to go to ground

To escape the darkness,, the Wars and the Fear

And once again embrace all that  I hold dear.

Remember darkness is over ridden by the Light

So use your thoughts wisely as you witness other’s plights

Send out your love in all that you are seeing

For we are eternal and magnificent BEings 

So I spent time with Family on picnics and on  walks

And held long conversations guiding with my talks 

With others who had problems much bigger than my own

So  I meditate and swing from my garden seated zone    

I thought long and hard on my future space and time

Digging deep I soul searched for my answers to climb 

From the surface of my mind and from the depths of my heart

I sort to find  what direction I must  now start.

So I tendered in my notice one month have I to stay  

As I embrace a new ambition, Retirements on the way.

I will still be here in blog land to whip up the odd few rhymes

I thank you for your patience and all your merry chimes,

I’ll work my way around you, catching all your news

And soon I will be Free to write again my mews

For it’s given me such strength to know I have such friends

Who cheer me from afar with Gratitude I send

Your words do so inspire me each one I surely read

Each one of you I’m grateful as you continue to plant  your seeds

For everyone that comments to the beating  of my drum

Has lifted me ever skyward and stopped me feeling glum.     

So now I need to focus on the things which bring in Peace

Its time for recreation. And the darkened world to cease

So do not hold your Fear as we are being led to doubt

Instead raise up your voice let’s here us  all shout..

“PEACE”

is my Mantra terror and War shall not reign

The Light of love will win as the darkness  will refrain

From controlling us to submit to it’s  Fearful ploys

We are Free thinking humans not puppets or their toys.

So come on rally with me as we cry out to bring on Peace

Let’s stop those in power for murdering to Decrease     

Stop using religion and sects to create War

We are ALL Universal Warriors as we follow universal laws

Every thing created began within our minds 

So come on let’s Deliver the Light of Love, be kind

My silence now is over as I step into the zone

I’ve shed the cloak of material and onward I will roam

The Dreamer has awoken from her sleep

As she breathes in Freedom and love light deep..

An Awakened Man~ Interlude

I may be quieter for a time, with posting, and getting to visit as I want to concentrate on more ME time this next couple of weeks.. I started to paint some more pots and I am going to be in the garden and out more while the weather stays good in between my day job..

So here are some of what I have been up to.. Painted Pots

Toadstool land

Toadstools

Flower Land

All things flowery

I am painting the flowers which I see around me and in my garden .. Moon Penny Daisies, Sunflowers, Forget-me-nots, Poppies and Fuchsias .. The pot in the centre was based on my Fuchsia plant  here.. I think I got the colours matched well..

Fuchsia

Now I am going to leave you with a video, you either love or dislike this man Russell Brand.. Last year he caused a stir with his interview on BBC News Night Spiritual Revolution interview, The video below contains many of his talks joined together in a 10 minute video. Listen to what it is he is saying and yes there are a few choice words in there too but we are all adults here and hear them on the streets regularly so my apologies in advance if this offends anyone.. 

Are you an Awakened Individual? I would love to hear your thoughts on what Russell has to say….

See you soon as you view the workings of this world and open your mind to what he is saying..

Corridors of Power~ Use your own Minds!

There are many magical corridors.  There are many Powerful Pathways.

Beware those who would claim there is but one.

Quote: Mary Summer Rain

Another dip into my thoughts as I sit with my journal.

While I try to keep my blog a Sanctuary for inspiration love light and peace. I am far from living in the land of make believe. And know that there are many wrongs which need to be put to rights.

I try to live in my own positive bubble, because I know only too well how easy it is to fall into Pits of despair for the sufferings of the world.

Being empathic often mean we become over sensitive to the horrors going on. And if I’m not careful, images can replay in my mind for days as my energy reaches out to those suffering souls, as I feel their pain. But I also know that if I do not detach and reign in these emotions they will serve me no good. For eventually they will end up devouring me.

Even so as I look into nature I see how birds squabble and fight for their territory. Each of us are not without our problems. We all have to find balance if we are to learn and live in harmony.

But neither can I be like the ostrich and bury my head in the sand either. Too many peoples lives are at steak.

Getting Angry about certain situations solves nothing. For Anger only feeds those who serve those same darker forces enabling them more control as they exercise their fear tactics to be used upon the masses.

We all need to be mindful of what energies we are putting out into the world. 

We do however need to Wake up to what the real world is doing. And as we rub the sleep from our eyes we need to open them and start and question. Let us stop being submissive in acceptance of what we are being told by those in power. Let us look at how corruption is being exposed by those who are the elite and seek out the real Truth amongst the constant lies spewed forth. Let’s utilise and use our greatest power, as we unify for peaceful solutions and open our eyes to who the enemies of humanity really are.

When I published some facts in previous years. I was often reluctant to press the publish button for the labels of conspiracy theories soon had their fingers pointing that I was some kind of nut.

I have always maintained. Never believe one word I say. But do your own research. 

You owe it to your self and your family in seeking out the true reality of how this world works. And once you do. You’re eyes are guaranteed to Pop! out of your head.

Its time to stop being blinkered and speak up against the injustices of the World its time if you have a vote to use it. And its time to understand we are all of us connected via the matrix of energy we send out.

So sending Anger only creates more to boil over. What goes around comes around.

But neither can we pretend everything in this world is ok.

As we watch scenarios play out which are bringing yet more deaths through those who play War Games with their citizens lives. Using children, teenagers either through murders or kidnappings, to escalate their causes is despicable.

We can no longer be complacent as we allow those in power to play with our World.. I speak not just about the warring of nations,

But I speak also about the war against our Earth.. Look up people at our  Skies Look into our oceans and look at what you are putting into your bodies. 

I tagged this within my Mind Body Spirit section.

I hope you will be Mindful.

And I hope you see we are all One Body with that of our Earth.

And lastly I hope your Spirit moves you to Wake up and engage in positive actions where ever you are in the world, to bring awareness and to help heal the Earth and her people’s where ever you can.

You can view the video’s upon my Truth Page in the header.

In Love and in Truth
