Meaningful Monday’s~ Bullying~

When I  was in school  in the days before the internet, I knew what it was to be bullied at an All Girls School, by girls in the school. 

I was the child with a home-made gingham summer  school uniform that my mother had made. It had  an extra  deep, doubled rolled hem and a bought lace collar along with pres-studs down the front. With buttons sewn on top. At first I was so proud of my new dress, because it had a fancy collar made of lace, not plain like the others. And I proudly went off to my new School aged 11.My dress started out miles too big. But  each year as I grew the hem was let down, you could see the material hem marks of each layer…  And it was a good thing that it was in those later  years, the mini skirt was in fashion.

My winter skirt, was the same, and by the time I left school, aged Fifteen,  it was shiny black with the amounts of washing and ironing.. It was then passed down to my  middle sister  who also had to wear it. 

 That dress got me into so much trouble. The headmistress had me in her office often, as she would single me out of assembly, making me blush, and cry, as she stood me in front of the whole assembly, not once but often telling me that is not the correct uniform. She would single another pupil out who wore the correct uniform and continue her verbal lashings of the Do’s and Don’ts of what not to wear. 

I would go home with a letter from the headmistress and my mother would rip it up and say, we cannot afford new dresses, that is why my red and white checked gingham dress was home-made in the first place.  I became to feel ashamed of the dress,ashamed of my shape, and felt everyone was looking at me. I learnt too who were friends, and who were not, as my uniform was made fun of. 

Children can be so cruel, and we as adults should know better.. But we are talking in the days when corporal punishment was allowed  and it was normal to  have the chalk board rubber thrown at you if you were lacking paying attention!.  

That summer dress I kid you not lasted me the whole four years at secondary school, it  fit where it touched. My Shoes also lasted for three years, they were second-hand off a cousin to start with, and filled with cotton wool because they were too big, and when at last the sole got worn and had a hole in them, I though yipppeee!… Now I get a new pair,  But no, my Dad re-soled them..  And for many years, I always felt~ Unworthy.. For it seemed my middle sister and I had to make do, while my three other siblings  always seemed to have newer things. 

Words Wound, and scar, and leave those who are bullied feeling so hurt and alone.. imagine being in today’s climate on your phone or computer in your own safe environment and how that impacts upon a young child or teenager who is already feeling insecure ..

Where ever I go, what ever I do, I try to become aware of how my words may impact upon another, I am not always successful, I have my outbursts too..  But I try to leave Kindness, Upliftment, and Praise for others… If we all found just one small thing in which to compliment another human being, What a difference that could make to their feelings of worthiness. 

We are all responsible for our thoughts, words, deeds and actions..

Lets Make a Difference with the ones we use..

Thank You ALL, ~ Enjoy your Quite Moments

Many thanks to All of you who have left me your Joyful comments..  Each and every one of you are so very special. 

This short five minutes video is dedicated to you..   

You truly are All Wonderful in that you spread your own joy, encouragement, and inspiration through your own unique blogs around this wonderful Community we have here on WordPress. 

I have been absorbed in my own quiet time, picking up my paints again, and  helping hubby with final things in our allotments, 

I  already have put a post Scheduled  for Monday which was written last weekend,  but  as yet I  still have many of you to reply to and return the visit..

You know  I always get around you in time.. 

But my eye once again has flared up yesterday, and it’s being medicated again with drops.  So my time is being spent resting it, and even my paints  I have had to leave alone for a while..

So you may appreciate  I  am taking concentrating  in small bites, while it heals.   Maybe it is asking me to take a LOOK at myself.. or Maybe I am not SEEing what I am meant to.. But I am nurturing this valuable sense and taking time to rest it. 

Either way, I will be sure to reply and land upon your blogs very soon 

Have a Wonderful Weekend, as you do your own special things, as you spread out your love.

The comments on this post will remain Closed while I take time to recover. 

Your love is felt..

and I thank you all once again for being so special. Enjoy the Video!

Love and Light

Healing and Balancing our Energies.

The Careful Balance between silence and words, withdrawal and involvement, distance and closeness, solitude and community forms a good basis for a wonderful shared Life ” 

Quote by J.C. Geike.

The above quote I came across this morning as I searched among some of my books for a little inspiration, I found it in a small book called Wisdom of Words that I have had since it was published in the 90’s.

In it are a collection of quotations, all to inspire and uplift.   I often find myself juggling my blogs, garden and quite time, and had been feeling a little guilty of neglecting my WordPress family.. Yes I know I shouldn’t, but I am human, and our conditioning of a life time often creeps in, for at my core I do not like letting people down.. Yet its impossible to visit every single post others publish especially those of you who post more than one post per week.   You all know the score.. 

So when I flicked open the book this morning  and this was at the top of the page, it jumped out at me.. Teaching me yet again that those invisible friends of mine were listening, and were confirming to me its ok to take time out and enjoy.. 

 

 Slowly some of you will notice I am getting there in catching up as I have managed to visit, In the mean time I would ask you to join me in sending continued Healing out into the world, if you have a loved one, friend,or situation you wish healed, please remember to ask  the Higher Realms for that healing as well as sending healing thoughts out to them and the situation which surrounds them. 

 My own little healing alter that I use to send healing out to friends.. I am also so pleased to say that Irene, whom you may remember I asked you to send healing to, is recovering well, all be it very slowly.. I have many friends here on WP who have been both in my prayers and thoughts and their names I have added to my healing book.

The power of our united thoughts reach out far and wide.. So while I may not have got around to visiting your actual blog, know I am working my way around. and you are all within my thoughts.

 ” Working upon our inner self is the most important thing we can do to help the outer world. We do so by nurturing ourselves, knowing that we are all connected. And that our Hearts are key players in unifying our energies..

The world acts as a mirror.. and reflects back to us what what we put out there.

Even Nature is a reflection of the whole. And she is speaking to us Constantly, yet we are failing to Listen.

For we are each a Part of the Whole..

We are ONE.”

I wrote the above on a post entitled What Energy are we Transmitting,

Fun and Laughter the Best Medicine.

Easter has been both Busy and Fun..  It started out on on Good Friday with lots of fun with our Granddaughter taking her for a bike ride and then on to Creswell Crags ” A fascinating place with excavated from the caves show how the area witnessed dramatic changes in climate at the edge of the northern ice sheets and was populated by Ice Age animals such as hyenas, mammoths, woolly rhinoceros, and migrating herds of reindeer, horse and bison.”

 

Lots of Gardening has been done too..And a corner of the Home Garden is looking colourful at the moment with the wallflowers out and the bulbs.. 

And yes.. The Allotments too have had lots of Tender Loving Care which is why not as much time has been spend here in blog land.. As much as I wish I could split my time in two..

More Laughter and Pictures of me in my Gardening gear  you can find if you click the above photo

Have a wonderful Weekend.. And I hope to get around to visit more whom I have not had chance yet to catch up with.. 

Love and Blessings.

Garden of Life!

I hope you have all had a wonderful Easter Break.

May I just thank all who are my regular readers here for all of your wonderful contributions to comments I appreciate you all. Also may I say welcome to all new followers  which have been many who have joined this year. I hope you enjoy browsing and reading.

Over the Easter weekend, we have spent many hours in our garden, planting seeds and weeding out.. So time for writing a new post has been limited.. So looking for inspiration I looked through my WP archives and came upon this aptly named post. Which I will re-schedule and post again .. Enjoy..

 

 Today I was reminded once again about Seeds, as I was updating and deleting many of my  Old Word Documents today I came across this piece I wrote back in 2007. And as nothing is ever by Chance!  It was part of a post I did on a forum. It didn’t have a title and I can’t even remember if I posted it .. But I will give it a title today..

Scattered Seeds of Thought.

Are we not all seeds? Have we not all been scattered?

Some may have fallen upon what is termed ‘the good earth’.

Whereby some may feel they have had all the benefits of a rich material upbringing.

Some seeds scattered may have felt they missed the ploughed furrow, the less fortunate circumstances,  but have still had a good foundation in which to grow.

And others have fallen upon the rocky edges where they have struggled to extend their roots to draw upon the nourishment and courage to grow, and have shriveled in their insecurities.

While others get entangled within the weeds, as they flounder, seeking to find themselves but being overshadowed by others until the wheat is no longer recognizable.

We may feel that it is the farmer’s hand of fate which determines where we shall fall?

But does not every seed have within it the same potential of growth?

Does not each seed no matter upon which ground it falls extends its roots downward searching for that nourishment which to feed from?

Does it still not lift its head and bend searching for the light?

Each of us has that potential to grow to bloom no matter what path we find ourselves upon.

I have witnessed many beautiful flowers that have fallen into crevices upon my concrete pathway, which I have marveled that they have taken root and bloomed.

And I have often wondered at the strength of the weed, as I have seen the dandelions push there way through solid tarmac growing healthily and strong.

And I have planted many a good plant in good fertile earth, fed and fussed over it, only to have it wilt and die

We have many fertile fields awaiting us. And that there are millions of different seeds we can sow.

But we must bring to our attention to the seed within, the strength we need to find starts within that centre of our Being.

To unfold ourselves to the warmth of the sun

We need to reach forever upward to allow ourselves to absorb that life giving

‘Light’.

It is only ourselves that give us Labels. It is only ourselves who determines what is a weed and what is a flower..

Within Our Earth Mothers Garden we are all equal in beauty all of us grow from the same beginnings.. We each of us start life as  a seed..

The Harvest of Life is  soon about to show us 

What we Sow, so shall we Reap..

May we Keep Planting LOVE, HARMONY and PEACE.

Smile Dear Friends~ #My First Post Revisited.

Firstly I wish to thank each and everyone of you for your beautiful well wishes, and support..  The Energy you have all sent is like a wave of pure joy as I read each of your comments.. Each one uplifts and adds a ‘Smile’ to my face.. 

Seeing how these energies are working at the moment and seeing by your comments how very similar we are feeling as we go through these necessary changes that are transpiring at this moment in time, shows me even more just how connected we all are..

And also how beautiful our close-knit community is here on WordPress as we reach out to support each other.  So Thank You All. 

I know I have not been able to get around to answer each of you and return the favour of revisiting your own blogs this past few weeks.. Some of you may have had to wait also a while for your comments to be approved and moderated.. I hope you bare with me in this, as  I work my way back to you all.

It is with huge delight that each time I log on I have an abundance of comments to answer, and by the time this is done.. My energy seems depleted.  So I am following the ‘Signs’ my body is giving me and when that happens I take Power Naps to recharge my batteries. So I am not fighting this, I am allowing my body to go with the flow..  As I release, and work internally as well as externally to create Wellness.

A dear Blogging friend Erika Kind, recently tagged me to do a post containing our very first Blog post.. It was way back in 2007.. When my blog then was part of Windows Live Spaces.. I still have several WP blogging friends who like me when Windows Live Spaces closed down, We were allowed to transfer our blogs and chose WordPress.  I have not chosen anyone else to participate, but I am sure if you would like to, the rules you can find over at Erika’s blog..

So I wish you all a Very Happy Weekend..

Keep Smiling..

and I will be seeing you sooner rather than later if at all possible.. 

LOVE

~ Sue ~

Keep Smiling and Bring on an Epidemic

Keep Smiling and Bring on an Epidemic

Smiling Is Infectious
Smiling is infectious, you can catch it like the flu,
When someone smiled at me today, I started smiling too.
I passed around the corner and someone saw my grin.
When he smiled I realized I’d passed it onto him.
I thought about that smile, then realized its worth,
A single smile, just like mine could travel round the Earth.
So, if you feel a smile begin, don’t leave it undetected.
Lets start an epidemic and get the world infected.

The Feather that spoke..

Feather from Heaven

Feather from Heaven

Today I found myself sharing a true story with a blogging friend.  So I thought I would share it again here. For it may give someone the heart to look for the hidden Signs that our Guardian Angels/Universe/Source throws in our direction, If only we take the time to Look and Listen.

Last week I was so depressed it was like I was grieving for someone.. I didn’t want to even get out of bed in the mornings.. My bones ached as I thought my Fibromyalgia was starting another flare up.. I knew the energies were changing and affecting our bodies and so set about trying to alter my mind set as I didn’t want to fall into this particular pit again.

Yet it seems that no matter how many times I tried to disconnect from the world to lift my spirits, Negative news seemed to follow me and bog me down as if I were living out other people’s experiences.

News items I was trying to avoid would invade my space.. And the more weight seemed to load onto my chest to the point I felt physically constricted..  I couldn’t shake it off.. I tried watching old movies  on DVDs that had  comedy in them to make me laugh  and I would walk out in Nature, yet still I had this heart ache that wouldn’t go away..

So I Asked my own healing Angels to come forward and help, I reverted back to my daily meditation practice going right back to basics.. To clear my aura, putting on my ‘Light Body’ Grounding myself and remembering to put protection around me.. I even had salt baths. And I did clearing exercises to separate cording’s both past and present.

Last week we had a big storm called Storm Doris.. Whose winds were gusting up to 90mph.. I asked for protection around our home and those of family and friends. And thankfully we had no damage, yet many did with fences and glass broken in greenhouses, trees felled and one lady lost her life to flying debris in another part of the country.

The weird thing was, that as the storm was dying down, A large white feather dropped onto my back patio.. It stuck to the floor with the rain. ( I have long collected feathers, and see them as a sign from my angels.. ) So I went to pick  it up and dried it off..

The next day in the very same spot.. The VERY same spot.. I saw what appeared a flower on a stem, it looked like sweet-peas. But when I bent to pick it up it was made out of plastic, it wasn’t sweet-peas, but a stem of bleeding hearts.

At the time I threw it in the bin, thinking it was the wind which had blown it But the winds had long died down over night .. But all day I could not stop thinking about it so looked up the meaning on line. Of the Bleeding hearts flower. Which among many other things said ( Bleeding Heart helps bring peace, harmony and balance to people’s heart, allowing a person to perceive love on many levels: of self, others, city, country, environment and beyond.) – See more HERE

So here is the feather I painted. And in doing so the calm and healing soothed my soul as I allowed back in the peace as I listened once again as I painted this feather spoke deep to my heart..

Reconnecting to our Inner Light.

 

light

I wrote the below post two years ago.. I thought it perfect to re-share it again in full here. Along with another Mandala of Cynthia Sageleaf ‘s who shared her drawing with me which I painted in.. You can find  her wonderful blog over at http://intuitiveandspiritual.com/  Along with her creations of Mandala’s

  I painted this Mandala in watercolour last week..

 Today I have been painting one of my own original paintings.. Sometimes we have to step away from the chaos being churned out in our world and reconnect back within our own Lights..

The below post goes on to explain more.. The original post was entitled 

Finding our Light 

I am still amazed at how many of you resonated with a previous post Cracking our Inner Shells. And I am so grateful for your responses and for those who shared this post with their own readers.. 

Knowing that we are the only ones with the power to dim our lights, is often  a hard  pill to swallow. As Human’s we often apportion blame for our emotional feelings  upon others or circumstances we find ourselves in. Yet in truth only I allow myself to feel sad, as likewise only I can choose to feel happy.

It’s natural we sometimes become overwhelmed, especially when the lessons keep coming. But it is important to remember that learning to understand yourself and your world is an on-going journey which we are all  gathering  through our experiences.

We do not come to Earth with instruction manuals, its all about learning and finding ourselves as we progress.  We are  spiritual beings, we need to determine where our spiritual light is being subdued or blocked.  Sometimes life throws up those much needed lessons so we have a chance to remove the layers of debris, so we can get out of our own way to feel our own light shining again.

Those lessons are intended to help you become more of who you are. And as you grow through this self-discovery, you begin to create your own instruction manual. And as with any manual, we often refer back to it as we tap into our intuitive thoughts, which help guide us through the pages of our everyday lives.

Answering the many responses upon my own posts often allows me to reach much deeper within my own inner self..I find myself instinctively saying the right things..As I tap into that Inner World which guides, And then I check myself and then question my self.. As I ask myself “ So why are you not following your own advice?”… Practice what you preach is another pill to swallow!..

When we buy a car, we make sure we maintain it properly, we put in the correct fuel, we keep it topped up with oil, and clean and polish it.. Our Bodies are vehicles for our Mind and Spirit. So too we need to polish our thoughts  clearing away the accumulation of mental  debris that keeps us from operating at our fullest capacity.

A simple shift in our thoughts can positively affect our mental state, moving from complaints, and negativity  into gratitude and Positivity by applying the light of love to any shadowy thoughts. .. Learning to nurture oneself instead of chastising oneself, Applying liberally that Polish we seldom use upon our selves… The Name of which is Love. 

How many negative thoughts flit through our minds in a day?  This morning caught me in this mood, Until I heard myself speak my thoughts aloud and I realised just how pitiful they sounded.. And I burst out laughing as I learnt another valued lesson.

At times we need to embrace the stillness, connecting back into the power within our centre, Meditation allows us to reconnect back to the source..  I know this is true of myself, I give my power/energy away by being pulled in too many directions all at once.. This Power Source  is always there for us, but when we forget to connect, we forget to put ourselves first and gather back in the energy we need to power up our own inner Lights. And so our lights become dim..

Sometimes it can be difficult to find the stillness if our bodies and minds are in the way. Depression plays its tricks that we are not worthy.

I can dish out advice until I am blue in the face.. But my lesson in this is clear..

I need to practice what I preach.. As we practice steps to keep our energy flowing freely and without obstruction, we shine our light more brightly, illuminating our own paths and making the world around us brighten as well.

Many thanks for reading

Shine your Lights
