Resting in Silence

Dear friends, 

I find myself this past week feeling so very depleted and tired. Even though my acupuncturist did her work upon me mid week, which normally revives me, I feel constantly tired.

So  I need to rejuvenate in the stillness of my own Sanctuary for a while.

 I am following what my body says I need right now. So I am taking  more time out to rest.

Spring is on the horizon and its been a long, long winter. We all of us at times have to make a choice to rest and take a break.  I need to gather my strength and refocus upon my Pathway. Nature is calling me into her hands for healing. If only to sit among the new shoots that are pushing their way through the ground.  I need to breathe in her nectar. 


Sending LOVE and Light to you my  dear friends  

Akiane and her soothing words can explain it better than I what it is I need right now, along with her beautiful art and words below.

But your love is felt.

Thank You 



My Roar

We may all of us from time to time feel like we are walking alone along our lonely roads, as we feel the world close in around us. We may feel there is no place left to run except to inside one’s own self.

But when we join with other hearts who are also searching, we find we are no longer walking a lonely path, because others are walking alongside us in unity, sharing their love. We then find we are not alone in our feelings, because others are also feeling exactly what we are feeling. We then join with other  heart centred beings, and find we are far from alone. It is then our united voices suddenly become heard.

When our roars and our thoughts unite, we suddenly become stronger, we no longer feel so alone as we overcome our difficulties. We then become like Lions.

I truly believe that in the majority of hearts lies love. I see it in various events that once in a while trigger our human hearts to speak out. And when we allow our hearts to rule instead of our heads, I see hope for the future. We perhaps see a world who on the surface appear to be indifferent and uncaring who have become numbed to the killing machines of the world, because killing has become part of their normal every day experiences.

But that comes from Seeing the world from our various perspectives. We in the western world who are witnessing changes on the global scales through our communication devices see the world through a different pair of eyes to those of lets say, the indigenous tribes. And yet our own life styles are now encroaching in on those indigenous tribes, whose day to day living is now being threatened through our greed.  As oceans become polluted, fish die, habits are destroyed. Deforestation is devouring land, while water levels rise and animal extinctions are on the increase. We are all held within Natures Balance and each action has a reaction. 

We call this progress, as our technological gadgets bring communication of world events ever closer. It seems that in such a short space of time we have managed to turn our world upside down as we have had our hand in so much destruction. Because we all like our ‘Things’ and creature comforts. 

So,  as those who read here regularly know, I retreated into my own space, and I re-read again the pages from a book my daughter had gifted me after her returning from South Africa and a visit to Global White Lion Protection Trust  and as I stared into the picture on the cover and upon the Tarot Deck of Cards  she also gifted me as I stared into the eyes of a Lion.  I just had to paint him as the words of wisdom from its Author Linda Tucker stuck a chord within me from the book The Lion Hearted Leadership™ The 13 Laws  I recommend reading. 

It is no coincidence that throughout time Lions have been chosen as Symbol Totems of strength, courage and bravery. You will see their images on Flags, Crests and buildings. Lions have been part of our various cultures for thousands of years, from Egypt to Greece. From Asia to Africa.

Kings have been named with the heart of Lions.  Even many Popes have taken the name of Leo. You will even find Lions prominent  in the USA as I discovered through researching that even the statue of Ulysses S. Grant Memorial in Washington D.C. is flanked by four Lions.

You may remember the Lion Cecil who was hunted down and killed and how his death sparked not only outrage, but how so many around the world so quickly united their hearts, bringing the worlds attention to Guns and their various uses, and the plight of lions who we are in real danger of extinction.

As Linda Tucker explains in her book this was also an event timed to perfection by the Star calendar dates in the constellations in Astrology. The White Lions the Star Children bringing us together in one voice.  What we do to Nature, are we not also doing to ourselves? And are not the Lions warning us through their own threat of extinction, that of our own future extinction?

But the Lion’s symbol reminds us all we are stronger than we think. Recently I withdrew back into my den, to gather inner strength. For sometimes we feel we are alone in our empathy, feeling helpless and alone on our pathway, thinking with all the love in the world it is not going to change the destructive path mankind seems to heading as we pollute our planet, cut down our trees, pollute our oceans and rivers, and kill species to the point of extinction. Not content with all of that, we are also polluting our minds!

And yet, we have also seen how tragic events have united people who once thought themselves alone. They have united their voices to stand up speaking their speak, as they overcome their fear.  We have seen the powerful fall, as Unity, Truth and Justice prevail. The most powerful tool we have is to unite in love.

You dear friends and followers have the greatest weapons at your disposal, you deploy it all the time with your own compassion and love. You share if often with me here, with your love and encouraging comments. This tool it is not a weapon cast in metal, but your mettle will be tested, time and time again.  This weapon we each hold, is the Power of Love. We have to reach inwards to our hearts, we have the weaponry to destroy the sickness that is sweeping the world. The sickness of indifference and not caring. The weapon is our Hearts.

Because if we do not start to care and live from our hearts instead of our heads, by turning a blind eye, we then all become guilty as if we were pulling the triggers, and if we were cutting down habitats and polluting oceans with mountains of plastic. We have to look within and begin to change our ways too. It all comes back to changing our selves.

Some may think we are too far down the rabbit hole to return.  I don’t believe this to be case, I’ve seen it in the passion of our younger generations eyes. I’ve seen their strength of their determination. I’ve seen them in their unity as they pull together. I see them speaking out and taking action while speaking out as they see the state of our world needs to change, from guns, to equality, racism and abuse to climate change and pollution.  I am inspired because these young hearts are our future world. They are now finding the courage to speak their speak.

Sometimes it takes tragedy and chaotic times to instigate change. Is it not time we dug deep into our own hearts, to seek out our own courage, and not be afraid to speak out. To not fear change, for change is evolution in the making. But not at the cost of lives or our environment. We need to build community spirit, not keep them living in fear.

At times we need to roar out our outrange at injustice, inequality, abuse and cruelty to Humans and our Animal Kingdom.

But we also need to have the courage to take those first steps as we put our own house in order and look closely at our own judgments our own prejudges as we reflect upon our own faults. To look at our own habits that as consumers we too contribute to our plastic environment that is polluting our oceans and planet.

Nature finds her balance, regenerating and adapting to change, isn’t it time we too found our balance and reconnected with our hearts?

Knowing Empathy.


I have sat down many times this past couple of weeks with pen poised over blank pages in my journal. My head full of so many things that are crying to be heard, yet they will not tumble out onto the page.

My heart has broken, with every mother’s cry, my tears have risen at the slightest cause. So, I put down my pen, and pick up my brushes and I paint.  

I paint into the eyes of another whose own story of their kind have also known the burden of humans who seek glory in their power of weapons.  

My bones have become heavy, my heart heavier still, and a tiredness sweeps over me like a wave that saps the energy from me that I have found myself just wanting to sleep, and shut down the replay of the internal chatter and visions that screams to be let out.

I have tried shutting out the world, and lost. Because the world is within me, and I am within the world, we are one.

At times I can detach, step back, but then I have to look in as the observer, and what I observe is the reality portrayed through a key hole of a window through the lens of those whose view is wanting us to feel as I have been feeling, helpless, and bereft.  

But we are not helpless, we are strong, but we have to be prepared for change. I have said many times being empathic is not an easy journey. It can wear you down, drain you, and drag you into the depths of despair if you allow it to grab hold of you.  You have to be strong and realise not all moods are your own. And you have to understand how our energy is being affected in our addictive behaviours we may not think we are subjected to. But we are all of us being played in this game of life.

So I will keep painting a while longer as I leave you with these words I wrote some time ago


Here is the thing about internal knowing

It’s difficult to explain in words that are glowing

For many people step away, thinking you quite queer

When they do not understand, and live in fear.


Our internal dialogue will banter to and fro

Revealing the truth, is something you just know

No words can describe the feelings deep inside

When you get this knowing, which inside resides


We can search out all the knowledge written down in books

But a few of us find our answers, until inside ourselves we look

Once we’ve found the key, that opens up our hearts

That’s when our Knowing, and knowledge begins to start


Trusting in our instincts each have long forgot

Brings that instant knowing, as we focus on the plot

You then begin to see the world through a different set of eyes

As you realise this world is made up of many lies


The deeper that you focus, you uncover many layers

As you peel away your skins, ignoring all the stares

You begin to understand there’s more than man-made laws

And as the Knowing grows, so you open up more doors


The labyrinth of life, well hidden in the maze

Stands right before you, hidden from your gaze

Make-believe becomes real, while reality is but a dream

While everything you touch has holographic seams


The pathway to knowing, is letting go of what you know

Because when you open your heart, love begins to flow

Love is the key, it may turn you inside out

Universal laws, you will see no one can flout


You then begin to see, we reap what we have sown

When you access ‘The Knowing’ your heart begins to grow

Knowing what I do, I often feel quite sad

That most have lost their knowing, and no, I’m not quite Mad!

See you all sometime soon. And I hope you will be patient as I may take time to moderate comments. Thank you.

What I have been painting will be shared next time around..

Much Love and Blessings.

Imagine a world of tomorrows with abundance of Peace

Look beyond where all Fear will cease

Think with your hearts and let’s dare to Dream

And collect the ingredients, Can you picture the scene?


Let’s be optimistic, inspiring with flare

Imagine Harmonious, Compassionate Care

As together we Join let Love be your Theme

And envisage a tomorrow where All dare to Dream


Lets Dream of Unity, a world free of war

A place where no one suffers anymore

Imagine the ingredients if we had to bake

What sort of a world would you wish to make


Have you got the ingredients as love you spread out?

Did you let go of prejudice and stop all your shout

Did you let go of Anger and Bitterness bite

Are you speaking your truth and sharing your Light?


What sort of Future do you wish to live?

Are you willing to share are your willing to give?

If we don’t dare Dream, then what will we then reap?

We create our tomorrows

Let Love

Happy Valentines  Day. 

Can a Leopard Change its spots? Can we change our ways?

Leopard half finished

How many of us put ourselves down, and tell ourselves we are not good enough, as we measure ourselves against others achievements.  Especially if we have been brought up lacking in self-worth.

I know many times I have measured myself, against others whom I feel are gifted and blessed with their specific talents.

But at the same time, I  grew up also with the words of my father ringing in my ears, as he would tell me when I said I couldn’t do something, that there was no such word as can’t. And he was right, for if we do not try, we will never know what we can accomplish.

I grew achieving many things I never thought I would. And as I walked my walk, I also understood something else. That no one is better or beneath  us, for we are all of us Human Beings, who are here to learn and grow via our merits or our mistakes.  Some of my greatest achievements, have been through the errors I have made, because they have taught me so much more about the skills of life. 

I have learnt to knit, sew, dress make, grow vegetables, I have, papered, painted and decorated our home. I have laid lino- linoleum in our bathroom and learnt to crochet.  I learnt how to use a computer, often through trial and error.    And I learnt as I grew as an adult that we are all of us equal.   For we each of us have our own unique gifts.

Drawing was my first love, and yet I still measure my capabilities against others whom in my eyes are far more gifted than I. As I never had any kind of art training. I just paint what  I feel. 

 Many of us Self sabotage ourselves at the first hurdle. As we give up, feeling we are not good enough.  We either lack confidence, or are simply insecure and afraid of striding out in a new direction.  We  are all special and need to accept the gifts we have, be it a listening ear, or a musical voice, or a bright smile and a bubbly personality. Each of us are special and unique.  

 Leopard came to remind me and teach me. She came to show me confidence and perseverance, as I had always put off drawing a Leopard because of its spots.. Fearing I would not do it justice, and fearing it would be a failure. And was why when I  started to paint it, I put off painting the spots on its head straight away. This was the Image I was working from, as I looked through one of my wildlife photography books from my book shelf. As you can see it’s not that clear, and the spots are hard to define. As this Sunset photo from Untamed  by Steve Bloom shows . 

Image from the book UNTAMED,By Steve Bloom~ Wild Life Photographer.

Leopard came to remind me that I need to trust in the skills I have, and to accept my spots, my imperfections. She came to show me through your own appreciation of my art, that I need to appreciate my own talents more, and to stop putting myself down.  And she comes to remind me, and perhaps you also, as you find yourself reading this, that it is never to late to apply yourself as you follow your dreams.

Leopard also came to remind me that I have also been putting off another project that I set the intention this year to start. And that was to put some of my poetry together in the hopes of publishing it. I made that start, then I guess I self-sabotaged it, and deleted much of what I had written to accompany my poetry.

Nearly finished. I had more detail on the branch to do. As I concentrated on adding details to the branch. The pathway of Life.

I guess its time I stepped out along that branch of life, and put my faith in the steps I need now to follow to bring that particular gift into the Light.

Thank you All, for being part of my journey as I rediscover and apply myself in unfamiliar territory.

 And as the Buzzard whom I saw the other week, In the post ‘Look up and Soar’ spoke to me, saying ““( …… It is time to soar above your perceived limitations. Are you currently undergoing an internal death and rebirth cycle? Are you ready to assert your actions from your ideas?……)

Leopard came to make me sure I heard and tell me to lay down my fears. And yes I am ready. 

I hope as you walk through your life, you can also lay down your fears and boldly put one foot in front of the other, as you focus your Intent on your Dreams!

Are YOU Ready? 

The Finished Leopard
More details were added to the branch, adding moss, and new life out of dead wood.

Love and Blessings


Art in the Making.

I thought I would share with you some of what I have been creating over the last couple of weeks.. And why I have not been such a regular visitor perhaps to your blog posts.

My art has taken hold of my Heart again, and I am enjoying just vanishing into oblivion for a while as my paints touch the canvas.

While I have created a few watercolours,  I wanted to do a larger canvas. This is in Acrylic paints. 

I had no idea at first what I wanted to paint.. But as I love cats, and have created quite a few in my time, if you scroll down to the right hand side of my side bar you will find many of them.   I thought how about a Big Cat.. 

This is far from finished, but you get the idea. 

Have a Magical Sunday and a Beautiful New week. 

Love and Blessings

One Step Closer to saving Elephants!

Dear WordPress family,

I just wanted to share some good news that came in via email that I will share with you here. I support Avaaz in many of their campaigns by signing petitions from human rights to animal cruelty.  So  I was so pleased that this was the result of a long campaign to ban Ivory in Hong Kong. 

If you want to add your name to help close more markets in Ivory, there is a link within the email at the bottom..

I have added to my Meaningful Monday’s Tag, but  can’t wait till then. 🙂

Have an amazing weekend all of you..


Love and Blessings Sue



Dear friends,

The world’s largest ivory market just banned ivory!! And our movement was at the centre of the fight!

Hong Kong’s ivory market is gigantic — responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of elephants. With these amazing creatures careening towards extinction, Avaazers launched a massive petition,sent thousands of messages to Hong Kong legislators, got many engaged directly with our campaign, and built a media storm right before the vote — legislators even held up our campaign ads during the debate!

And yesterday, we won!!! Here’s how it happened…

Hong Kong petition delivery

The 1.1 million-strong call for an ivory ban is delivered to Hong Kong’s lawmakers ahead of the vote

First, over a million of us joined our petition calling for an ivory ban. Almost immediately after launching, a key legislator got in touch to talk to Avaaz about the campaign — we definitely got their attention!

Then, last week, we got an urgent email from campaigners in Hong Kong that the government was calling a vote on the ivory ban in just five days. So, we swung into action:

  • We plastered Hong Kong’s social media with a video from our friends at WildAid Hong Kong featuring Chinese superstar Li Bing Bing, showing the heartbreaking impact of the ivory trade.
  • Next, we created a beautiful ad to run in Hong Kong’s biggest newspaper on the day of the vote, telling legislators that the future of elephants was in their hands.

The Avaaz ad in the Oriental Daily News telling Hong Kong lawmakers that the elephants’ future is in their hands
  • Then thousands of us sent messages to lawmakers calling on them to support the ban.
  • And as the legislators went in to vote, Avaazers joined a colourful protest organised by fellow campaigners.

Petition Delivery

“Having the support of over a million people all over the world made a big impact when it came down to the vote. Thank you Avaazers!”
– Alex Hofford, WildAid Hong Kong
  • Finally, in the debate before the vote, one of the main legislators championing the ban held up a giant printed version of our ad for everyone to see, showing them the whole world was watching!

Petition Delivery

“It was a huge boost to be able to deliver a million voices into the debate before we voted for the ivory ban. The world stood with us, and it made a difference.”
– Hong Kong lawmaker Hon Elizabeth Quat

In the end, we won the vote by a landslide!Hong Kong Ivory Vote CountMedia worldwide have hailed this ‘historic’ vote — the biggest ivory market in the world will now start shutting down its ivory trade!Ivory+MediaLike many Avaaz campaigns, we didn’t do this alone. This incredible result was only possible after years of campaigning by WildAid and others, and thanks to a dedicated group of legislators in Hong Kong who made sure the vote happened.

Today, thanks to all of us, the poachers and traders are fuming, and our majestic elephant friends have been given a lifeline. I’m full of joy, for the planet, but also selfishly, for my own family. I’ve just become a dad, and now I have hope that my new baby will grow up to have the spectacular experience of seeing elephants in the wild.

With gratitude and pride at what we have achieved together,

Bert and the Avaaz team

P.S. We’ve won in Hong Kong — but there are still markets open in Europe that we need to close. Click here and add your name to that campaign too!

Look UP! and Soar…

When you awoke this morning, did you look in the mirror?

I did.

I looked deep into my eyes beyond my eyelids

I travelled back in time before technology took hold

Before it sucked us from reality, into its social media fold


To a time when children would play outside in fresher air

When parents wouldn’t worry about the dangers out there

I went back, before we numbed ourselves in computer game fads

Before we were swamped in consumerism, and online shopping Adds


I travelled to the family dinner table, where all gathered in discussion

As their days events unravelled in polite conversations

Exchanging news, while eating their meal

While today, no one speaks, except for text spiel


No one looks up at the sky anymore

Earphones plugged in, downloads the score

Is it any wonder Nature is a mess?

She just reflects back our own destructiveness


We’ve forgotten to Respect, Care for and Love

The very gifts that were given from Source, above

So, this morning I gave thanks, as I travelled back in time

For the gifts I need to nurture, and resurrect as mine


When we become Creative, and align with our true essence

We’ll find ourselves in the flow, of our Now experience

Synchronicity will astonish, when you Dream a better self

Your Intention creates an Outcome, creating pure wealth.


And I am not speaking of Gold, or monetary gain

The wealth I speak of is much more plain

When you give birth to your dream, when aligned with your heart

Believe in its Magic,

Look in the mirror

Make a Start!.

I hope your year has begun in its own high flying start. Some of you may have noticed I am not on line as much. I am just embracing each day, going within its flow. I took myself off for a  lone walk in the chilly sun this afternoon. It was a great afternoon for blowing away cobwebs. 

And often while walking, I ask for Sign that I am on the right path. And sure enough I saw this buzzard, it looks further away on the photo slides than it was, and I was able to tell it was a  UK buzzard by the pattern beneath its wings.  Part of what Buzzard is teaching says this~

“( …… It is time to soar above your perceived limitations. Are you currently undergoing an internal death and rebirth cycle? Are you ready to assert your actions from your ideas? Buzzard will aid in transforming knowledge to bring the unconscious to conscious and teach how to soar above it and bring the transformation you are needing at this time. Are you ready for these lessons of awakening? ……. (He teaches efficiency in actions and promises that changes are imminent. He shows how to restore harmony of thoughts and feelings so one can reach new heights with little effort. Buzzards will aid in uncovering truths, clarifying previous conceptions, and allow to see and hear subtle hidden qualities using intuition and awareness.)  “

For those interested in finding the  Full Totem meaning you can find it at this link, just scroll down alphabetically to Buzzard.   Our UK Buzzard looks like this 

Are we ready to soar?

Are you reinventing yourself? 

Are you following your Dreams?

We are all of us filled with wonderful capabilities. Sometimes all we need is to trust in the flow and go with it. 

I am in the FLOW 

Love and Light!
