Eternal Friendships

IPhotobucket have attempted several posts over the last few days with the Halloween Theme.. All of which I deleted after spending quite some time on them.. 

I thought I would look back within my archives for Inspiration, when I came across an old post from my Windows Live Space days before I transferred the whole of my blog over to WordPress

You know how it is, when you are guided, and then something feels right.. I shed a few tears re-reading my post and the poem I had written for my friend.. And wondered why had the Universe led me to it today of all days..

I didn’t have to think long.. Tomorrow is the November the 1st. and it was my friends Earth Birthday..

I just want to send ALL of my new found Blogging friends Love and Encouragement.. what ever life is throwing at you at the moment..  And Remember.

Life is Short, Break the Rules, Forgive Quickly, Kiss Passionately, Love Truly, and Laugh Constantly 

Below is the poem I wrote my friend she was 56 when she passed and she remarried when she was 55, knowing she had not long left for this earth..  They had a wonderful wedding in Hawaii and the following Poem is what I gave her, as I had nothing else but my heart to share.. I called it simply, Friends. 

Friends

I sit here and stare at a blank page,

Knowing that words will be given through my faithful sage.

Memories are such a wonderful gift,

And you’ve given me plenty, my life you’ve enriched.

~~

The shopping we’ve done, until our feet ache.

Laughing at the fashions that home we did not take.

Drooling over books and paintings, the expense!

Buying silly trinkets that didn’t make any sense

~~

Memories are such a wonderful gift,

And you’ve given me plenty, my life you’ve enriched.

Remember the Christmas Market and the wares that they sold,

Treasures to wrap up in your heart, to keep hold.

~~

Remember the old busker, a child’s xylophone he did play,

Three notes were his tune, smiling, he made our day.

The talks of serious, deep mystical things,

The ups and downs, the shared memory brings.

~~

A beautiful Japanese garden did a day we spend.

The books we have read and to each other lend.

How else could I not call you my friend!

Memories are such a wonderful gift,

And you’ve given me plenty, my heart you up lift.

~~

The times you gently scolded me and my ways,

You are just as stubborn, slobbing away your days!

We can talk for hours and yet not say what’s in our heart,

Not wanting to admit to a day when we must part.

~~

Tears fill my eyes, as these words to you I send,

But I know that for all eternity you will go on being my friend.

Remember the promise, we to each other made,

If we should ever want to return here, hit me with a spade.

Your journey is before me, but distance will not part,

As the memories that you give me are forever in my heart.

 

 

Today is the day we remember our Ancestors and those who have passed beyond the veil..

Happy Birthday Pat..

Eternally within my Heart.

Samhain Blessings to you ALL 

Sue

 

Believe you can make a difference in this world

This week time is sparse on WordPress, as I wish to spend time with family. 

I am sure some of you have watched this video before, but it still grips me each time I watch it. 

Remember We are ALL of us Fearless, when we understand We are so much more than our Human Form.

Picture source AZ quotes.com

I read the above quote in the Book I am re-reading ‘ Wishes Fulfilled’ By Dr Wayne W Dyer, sadly for us now no longer with us.. But I am sure he is having a wonderful reunion with so many of his friends.  

 I also love this quote of Wayne Dyer’s

“Not only do you become what you think about, but the world also becomes what you think about. Those who think that the world is a dark place are blind to the light that might illuminate their lives. Those who see the light of the world view the dark spots as merely potential light.”Wayne Dyer  Linked Here 

Think about that for a moment.. 

 “Those who see the light of the world view the dark spots as merely potential light.”

Let us start working on those dark spots! 🙂

♥♥♥

See You All Soon..

Where’s there Muck!..

Digging In

Getting Stuck In. ..

 There is a saying here in the UK.. I am sure some of you have heard of it.. ” Where’s there’s Muck there’s Money.”

Well I can assure you I didn’t find any Gold Nuggets, but this Muck is pure Gold in that it is rich with nutrients the Earth needs for next years growing.

And Like our gardens, so too our Minds and bodies need to be maintained and offered food for thought..  All too often we can rush here and there and neglect to care for ourselves. 

We need to remember to clear away the clutter and the debris which our minds all too often collect. As we  ‘Weed’ out the Muck of those negative thoughts which stops us operating at our best.

All it takes is a shift in our awareness, and to be mindful of what we are projecting out. I all to often hear people moan and groan, and yet when we compare our good fortune to others around the world, I see nothing much to complain about, and plenty to be grateful for.

Next years seeds

New Kidney Bean seeds collected for next year .

If I plant something in the shade, and over water it, it soon shows me its not feeling well, and will soon rot and die.. Likewise if I plant something in the sun and forget to water it, It too will whither and die.. 

We need balance, in all things as well as in our lives . And so at times our Lights can get blocked, dimmed by the shadows of negativity which filters through into our lives from  various outside sources.

That is what I always do, connect to Mother Nature, a change of scenery helps alter your perspective on Life. 

And  that’s just what I have been doing all week.  As I clear out, dig in and Create..

Knitting Waistcoat

New waistcoat I started yesterday Wednesday

 

But we must also remember to take some Quiet time for ourselves, relax and find our centres.. The Source is always there for us, but we can often forget to connect, as we divide our energy in too many directions. So remember to step back into your Own Stillness, and reconnect back to your own Inner Light..

And  so that is what I am doing over the next few days.. I will still be popping up to comment and may even pay you a visit..

But If I don’t, you know I am being Mindful of Myself..  🙂 

Love and Blessings to you ALL.. 

Love 

~Sue~

 

 

Oneness within Nature

Ladybower Reservoir

Ladybower Reservoir

We went out hiking over the weekend and went back to Hope Valley the place of my roots.. We walked along the shore of the Ladybower Reservoir which is part of the Derwent Valley Reservoirs of which there are Three.. More about them can be found HERE  “Together Howden, Derwent and Ladybower reservoirs form the largest area of open water in Derbyshire and the Peak District National Park….”

Be at One with yourself

Be at one with the world

Trees around Ladybower

Trees around Ladybower

Be at One with Nature

And see your life unfurl

Autumn Colours around Ladybower

Autumn Colours around Ladybower

Close your eyes and imagine

The beginnings of a New Earth,

Autumn Hills at Ladybower

Autumn Hills at Ladybower

And Open your eyes to your beauty

Breathe in and give Birth.

Looking down between the trees

Looking down between the trees

divider

For you are One and part of the Whole

Not a separate Unit , but a Beautiful Soul

The Sun breaks through

The Sun breaks through

United within the One Divine love

And part of that cosmic hub.

Take in the view

Take in the view

Share your love along with your Light

And Rejoice in Gratitude

Use your sight

To see a world in Beauty and Grace

Looking Back at the bridge view

Look beyond and see what wonders you can find

divider

You are stronger than you think you know

Spread a little Love where ever you go

One of the towers at Ladybower

One of the towers at Ladybower  Use your own tower of strength

Shower your peace and sprinkle your heart

Into the rivers of life, send a ripple a spark

Curves of colour

Curves of colour

Be Calm, knowing all is well

Keep breathing in Peace for inside it dwells

divider

Autumn Hills at Ladybower

Autumn Hills at Ladybower

Know you are where you are meant to be

Open your eyes

Come on now See

looking across the valley

looking across the valley

For we are ONE and it’s time to Unite

Stop all your hating, and judging and strife

And still another bend to follow at Ladybower

And still another bend to follow at Ladybower

Find your heart and clear out your mind

Seek out yourself

And Wisdom you’ll find

divider

Golden tops to the trees

Golden tops to the trees

Let go of torments and allow the Joy in

Come on now people

It’s time to begin

Allow the colours into your life

Allow the colours into your life

Be One with yourself

Be One with the world

Be One with nature

Let the oneness begin

Let the oneness begin

And Let the Universe Spin

For the Spiral is turning and

Peace will Win..

Respect: Throughout Time

Thank you goes to Linda for her idea of bringing us together for this

Time Machine Blogging Challenge. 

Directions: Pick a time in your life that was critical to your development. You can go back or forwards in time. It can be real or imagined. After all, it is real if you imagine it!

Choose an idea or a skill or a value you hold dear in the present and infuse it into that time period.

Share your story of what happens to positively impact your life.

Stepping in The Time Machine I am in 1997:

“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

True Story

The Television cameras were pointing at me as my turn came around the table to speak up, in front of me was President Chandrika Kumaratunga. Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga As The President of Sri Lanka.jpgShe had a wonderful green sari on and was smiling profusely. My mouth went dry, was I really in Sri Lanka?

How had I arrived here? was this really me about to take my turn to speak?

Time stopped as I took a breath and my mind went blank!

I had travelled a long way upon my journey Sometimes our ‘Journey’ takes us along various routes and detours but each road is one of discovery

Time travel back to 1969:

But Dad, I don’t want to work in a factory”, can’t I go to art college?”.. I wanted to say, but I knew it was worthless, even my teacher had tried to persuade my parents about further education, but to no avail. I had to respect my Dad’s wishes, that was how it was.

I was the eldest of 5 siblings and I was needed to bring in a wage, and the factories brought in the best wages.. And it was either the sewing factory or the Poultry factory; both had been on our  girls school antennary to visit in our last term as we were given ideas for career paths.

The slaughtering of chickens had sickened me, and the stench of it had stayed in my nostrils the whole day. No way was I going to work there!.

So at the age of 15 I left school to embark upon the next step of life out in the big wide world. I was plunged into an alien world of whirring machines, learning new names for them as well as new skills to operate them .

I would learn to mask my embarrassment of the more forward thinking girls, and laugh with a grin upon my face while noticeably turning red over their teasing  of a shy girl..

I would learn to master many skills within the textile trade over the next 30 years, and I would wear many hats with many names within the clothing industry, From machinist, I climbed through the various ranks to Training Manager. During this time I also held the title of Mrs, and Mum, to two children with a Mum break of around 5 years in between.

The one trait that got me through all of those years was to Respect all as  equals. No one was lesser or more than myself. I didn’t adopt habits of swearing or cursing and surprisingly in every place I have worked, while being very open minded, as I can laugh along with the rest over a good joke, others would always curb their language when I was around and would respect my dislike of its use. I could also communicate with top executives and was not afraid to voice  respectful opinions and ideas to help production costs

I ran many teams over the years putting in new styles, and would overhear some wonderful stories, that would make your hair curl Smile  and it would often make me smile when I walked back and forth to hear conversations alter as girls would say “watch your language Sue’s about!”.. I would never expect anyone to do something I couldn’t achieve myself, and would sit at any machine on the factory floor and work for long lengths of time to show girls I could earn my money in the minutes provided in Piece-Work. And if I couldn’t I would get it retimed.. ( as I was the one with the stop watch!) Winking smile 

I would act as negotiator in Union disputes and always tried to treat others fairly. Earning the respect of both parties involved.  I would hire, and yes at times have to fire, I would represent Industry as we linked with Education and took pride in being part of the first Business and Education Partnerships in schools, which helped create links for work experience for students in our area. I would put on fashion shows which I helped students design and then sew under supervision in our factories.. Life was Full on..

So began the mutual respect between us, and I was pleased to call this real Team-Working at its best.

“I speak to everyone in the same way, whether he is the garbage man or the president of the university.”
Albert Einstein

A collection of memories

A collection of memories

Fast-forward to 1997: I was back in the room with camera pointing straight at me

The day had  already been non-stop. I was here on a business trip and for this first week I was part of the London Chamber of Commerce Trade delegation, we had been to a lavish reception the evening before at the British High Commission in Colombo, And had visited a wonderful building in the morning where the prices of Tea had been bought and sold to listen to someone else speak.

I cleared my throat,… the person next to me finished what they were saying and I took a sip of water. I began speaking my rehearsed lines, but the only thing I could hear was the drumming in my ears from the pounding of my heart.

“ My name is……… and I am the Training Manager for…………… We have Nine Divisions World Wide and employ at the present time 2,980 people. We are here to familiarise ourselves with current sewing training, and to meet with local colleagues in Sri Lanka. We are also here to familiarise’ ( I knew I was repeating myself and I could feel my colour rise ) ‘ourselves with training cultures with the view to source training availabilities by visiting colleges.”

I turned to my colleague M, who was the Training Development Executive for help, and she then took over to fill in with more details; the next delegate spoke as the cameraman turned his lens on them. The whole event was surreal.

The month prior we had nearly cancelled our visit due to a bomb exploding in the Capital of Colombo by the Tamil Tigers. To be honest thinking back I never had given the world of politics much heed, so wrapped up within my own world of work had I been. It would be later I would find out more about this fascinating Woman before me in the Green Sari  and how tragedy had struck her  different members of her family and how later another bomb explosion was to take her sight of one eye. I have huge respect for this lady.

The warmth of everyone I met  in Sri Lanka had a huge impact upon me for  along while to come.. I saw how the other half lived as they washed their clothes in the river, and saw how many lived on so little. I saw the rubbish piles on the streets in our travels, and the heavy carts both people and cows pulled along. I marvelled how the children walked to school all neat and tidy in their uniforms, and held my breath often as we travelled the long distances to our Factory bases along roads where no rules seemed to apply, and where Cows  were the only ones who seemed to have rights of way. 

What struck me beyond any thing else, was that most of the time the people smiled.. They were courteous and respectful and even though they had nothing much their happiness radiated out and was contagious..

I saw the contrast of how the rich lived with the lavishness splashed out for those in business at the reception we were given in the British High Commission and the poverty so many endured just a few miles away.

For those of you who may be thinking our firm exploited these girls, let me say their factory conditions were newer and better than our own in the UK, They were purpose built on new industrial sites.  We were there to help set up training which would get these sewing machinists recognised as skilled machinist, Ours were not the sweat shops we see all too often on foreign shores..  Many families relying on their incomes and our firm also provided free medical care which extended to their immediate families. 

I left the industry for good in 2004, it was to be the same year that the Earth quake hit on Boxing Day December 26th. Where thousands perished.  I remember sending my colleagues messages. And later learnt many who had worked within my old company had lost their lives that day.   I took with me the respect I have always had for others and applied it within my daily life.. Both with people and with Nature and our Animal Kingdom..

If we  all of us had more respect for each other the world would not be as it is today, I have great respect for all throughout all walks of life..

Its up to each of us to learn to respect not only others but to remember to also respect ourselves

We are all of us worthy of respect!

Regardless of what backgrounds we have come from or what religion we follow or the colour of our skin

WE ARE ONE

Update’s of Garden.

IMG-20150925-00342

Dear friends, as promised I will update you on what has been happening in Dreamwalker’s Garden

I am slowly working my way around you all, and hope to have an interesting post on Sunday which is part of Linda’s  Time Machine Blogging Challenge 

There are still a few more dates if you are interested in taking up Linda’s challenge.. at the above link  

Mine will be posted on Sunday.

In the mean time  

For this moment is all I seek

As conscious thought in unity greets

My heaven on Earth is held in time

As I grab my pen to create this Rhyme

Oneness is all I feel

As into my garden I gaze surreal

Tranquil thoughts as nature Blends

My thoughts of Peace are what I send

 You can also see what I have been doing with my Begonia’s 

HERE

And what I have helped to build

HERE

Love and Blessings 

Sue 

Healing Words

Healing Words Poem

Let the Pen flow across the page

Allow it to release all that pent up rage

Form the words as they are born in your mind

Feel the Lightness as you let go and unwind

~~

See the Messages we give to ourselves

Pouring out emotions so long held

Poetry in Motion, Healing at a stroke

As we let go of Anger that we never have spoke

~~

See the patterns that form into words

Voice them on paper, so they can be heard

They say the Pen is Mightier than the Sword

Know their Power, as we cut the cords

~~

Words and Letters may jumble and mix

Once Written out loud they can heal and fix

The long held wounds we hold in our hearts

So take out your Pen- Let the Healing Start!

Each of us, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain. Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward.. I hope that I can send a few ripples out via the web of life, as we each of us weave the threads together... Welcome to my Sanctuary of Peace and Love... May we each spread our Lights around our World....Sue Dreamwalker
