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



The Edge of Time.

Standing on the edge of time

Looking back on what once was mine

I see the fragments of my soul

As I lost sight of all of my goals


Each Earth decent, I’d start anew

With plans created through which I grew

To Parents born, plus wounds to bare

Each Lesson learned, I’d climb the stairs


Every step, a blueprint plan

Through Aeons of time in many clans,

All with one objective held in mind

To re-connect with self, to find

The part of me I thought once lost

Of which I strove at any cost

To connect the pieces that were lost and gone

That allowed me now to join as One.


It was then as each life I saw

In separation, fallen, trying to even scores

I saw the struggles and suffering pains

Of Karmic Balance, and Human Blames.


Compassion swept through my human lives,

As I witnessed Triumphs, the Highs and Dives,

Each leading me to the Point of Now.

Standing on the Edge of Time. – I bow


For now I see, I was never broken

I was a scattered seed, now awoken

Reaping all of Aeons Past

Now I’m Whole- And Home at Last..


The photos are some taken at the end of November on my trip to Scotland.. We woke up to snow this morning here in England, but I am as snug as a bug in a rug.. Wishing you all a wonderful Weekend.. And thank you for all of my new subscribers and for my faithful friends who stick with my comings and goings..  The poem I wrote the day before my trip. 

Much Love to you all and have a perfect Weekend  


Meaningful Monday’s ~’Senses’

Shadow of my hanging crystal in the window and prisms on the wall.

The Sunlight cast her golden glow through the gap in the treeline, sending her light to to catch the hanging teardrop crystal that hung in the window.

A multitude of tiny rainbow prisms danced along the wall, as I caught the crystal as I drew open the curtains to greet my day. It was a while before they settled their dance and left their bright rainbows along the wall, each a perfect spectrum of light. 

The frost had magically transformed the lawn to white shards of glistening glitter as the Sun’s rays caught them. The Blackbird already well into eating breakfast was pecking the left-over corn and mealworms left out yesterday.

The Robin was perched in his usual favourite spot on the fence serenely surveying the garden, while the sparrows busied themselves as they frantically battled for positions pecking each other out of the way on the fat-ball feeder.

A neighbour’s cat at that moment took his usual shortcut through our garden and in an instant, there was not a bird in sight, as they had swiftly all flown into their invisible hides within the bushes.

I smiled as I breathed in deeper, as I greeted my day. Knowing that as soon as the cat was out of sight, the birds would be back to fill up for breakfast.

The kettle came to the boil, and the aroma of the toast popping up from the toaster brought my attention back to my tasks in hand, as I prepared my own breakfast.

I took my tea and toast to sit by the patio window as I watched the garden life resume, as one by one the sparrows popped their heads out from the bushes and their cheerful chattering once again saying the coast was clear. While the rainbows continued to shine in their magnificent hues along the wall.

Today’s post is being merged with a challenge set up by Linda, over at Litebeings Chronicles    on her challenge of Litebeings Sense-sational Challenges  

I wrote the above, because each day we use our senses, and if we lost one of them it would alter our lives drastically. and within that first few moments of waking, I had used all five of them.

We take each of them for granted, and are so very blessed with being able to see, hear, feel, taste, smell, and yet, there is one in which we all of us have, and often are unaware of how to use it, and that is our  sixth sense.

Feather- Crystal Rainbow Prisms

This sixth sense is one that we have all been born with, but we have long since lost the ability to activate it successfully. And when we do, people are fearful of it, so you either tend to hide this ability or if you are a child, you are soon told it is nonsense and it is not to be practised, so like any muscle, if you do not use it, you soon lose it.

I have been very privileged in using my sixth sense and developing it during my life time. And have used my Inner Knowing, our inbuilt intuitive system that when you tune in correctly, helps us to explore our deeper connection beyond that which we can see. 

Rainbow Prism on wall~ Perfect. We are all colours within the rainbow, None are separate.


I am sure there are many of you who have stories of when such sixth senses kicked in, when you had that feeling of something was about to happen, or you had an unexplained encounter, premonition, or simple knew who was on the other end of the land line before you even picked up the phone.

Linda’s challenge asked. Which senses bring you Joy and delight. In short, they all do, I could not paint, sew, cook, knit or garden without the enjoyment of ALL of my senses that come into play.  Linda’s second question was, How do they help you live a meaningful life? They all bring meaning to my life. Each and every one of them. For each are important.

But my sixth sense is also very important, for in learning to connect deeper, and activate this hidden sense which we ALL of us have, it has allowed me to explore not only my own inner worlds, but worlds beyond, which so many are afraid of touching. And when you learn to traverse this new sense, you also find a whole new world waiting to be explored, that brings deeper understanding to why we are here and who we are and to our Mission here on Earth. 


One  sense that I wish to embrace more, Is my Sense of ‘Vision’… Not within my own eyes, but the Vision I hold for the world. One where our dreams of what is possible outweighs our uncertainties.  Where we can leave the past in the past, as we embrace and engage in the experience of Now. Breathing in beauty, creating beauty within our thoughts, as we share common good with our community. A Vision, where no one lives in lack, and where ALL life is precious, where all are equal, where no one starves, and one where we grow to respect each other and all living things.

Yes, you may say I am a dreamer… 

But without Dreams, we have no Vision.

 Our thoughts, and our actions are what bring about our future, so today’s Visions are our future tomorrows.

Thank you Linda for your Sense-sational Challenge, and if you want to join in I know she has some dates left for November if you should wish to and pick up your Badge.  And if you should think is art is familiar, I donated this piece of art for Linda’s Challenge to create the badge. 

What sixth sense have you experienced?

The next on the list in the challenge at the moment of  publication to take part Is Leigh on the 15th Nov’

Meaningful Monday’s ~ Homelessness

A big concern in our modern-day world is the amount of people now homeless, and sleeping rough on our streets. This is also emphasised even more as we see the Mass Displacement of people who are being driven from their homelands because of war, or persecution of their religion. Who are then herded together like animals in disgraceful camps and forgotten about once the news headlines die down. 

Today on my Meaningful Monday post, I want to bring the plight of Homelessness a little closer to home.

In my own home town here in England, the numbers of people sleeping rough have risen considerably. For those of you who are not familiar with a blog called Gallybloggers  This is a site set up by  Dewin Nefol  where you can also see his beautiful digital art creations.

I hope you will go and read more poems written by those homeless souls, which are submitted and presented by Dewin on the blog he created at Gallybloggers especially to bring awareness to their plight in sharing their poems and thoughts.  Dewin, whose home town is in Wales, reaches out to support these individuals, bringing awareness of those who are  in need. These are also proud and independent, intelligent people, whose lives have become  a product of circumstance.

I want you, just for a moment to think, what kind of stories have driven a person to live on the streets, to weather the storms, not only of wind, rain, bitter cold and snow. But the storms we who pass them by vent upon them. In our verbal abuse,violence, or by our lack of compassion, and our ignorance, as we pass them by trying to ignore their existence.. 

The World is filling up more and more with Homelessness, and for many that may mean just one pay-packet away from eviction of your own nice dwellings. There for the Grace of our Circumstances we all could walk in the shoes of Sole Man, a homeless person whose poetry hits a nerve in his poem DeadBeat   

Have you ever stopped to consider the back story of these homeless people, and why they found themselves upon the streets?. Have you ever thought, that they may have been once an educated teacher, in business,  or a talented musician, an artist, a soldier, or  an abused youngster, and why they now live as they do.

I hope as you walk about your own towns and cities, and you come across a homeless person living rough on the streets, you do not walk on by.

But you Stop! and consider his back story and circumstance..

And instead of walking on by, you reach out a helping hand

and SEE the person in front of you.

Samhain’s Perfect Gift.

We may feel we are out on a limb.


As the trees release their canopy letting go to float

The leaves like fallen time drift from hollowed Oak

Decay is part of Nature she never yet stands still

As birds and beasts hunker down to face the winter’s chill


Samhain’s perfect gift is a time to release the old

Let go of those old grudges with the cobwebs of our souls

Collect that inner wisdom that is stored within the heart

Harvest new possibilities, now is the time to start


So, stand firm in your roots and hold steadfast like the tree

Accept the Wheel is turning, though at times we may not see

Each Season has its purpose to regenerate and sow

Change comes to the World so that All our souls may grow.

Rising Above Our Negative Emotions.

After writing down all of my thoughts of my perception of the world we are shown. I paused my pen over the paper. It hung there I don’t know how long, as a calm and peace seemed to overtake me.

It was as if through venting, I had expelled all the debris, that clung inside my mind. I remembered the words my daughter often says. “It is what it is”.  I breathed out.. ‘let is all go’ I thought.

I knew, and know deep inside, no amount of venting, shouting, pointing fingers, is ever going to change anything.

Unless we see and understand that in order to change anything we first must Choose to do so.   And the only thing we can change is ourselves.

I can often get vexed at myself, because I know this, I know in principle how the Universe works, as much as my own knowledge of understanding allows. I am far, far from perfect. And often navigate as most of us do, in our Earth School, by learning through our mistakes, and seeing we are all upon a journey of learning.  How we learn is different for each of us. For we are all of us unique, and we are all of us at various stages within that journey as we begin to discover who we are.

Many of us are being challenged right now, as the frequencies shift and shape us, we are all of us evolving, growing, learning. While many are wanting to break free, others are resisting. And others are oblivious. I wonder often at times is it best to be oblivious?

But when you wake up on your journey we also become aware of how our feelings are being affected by the masses. And how often the masses are manipulated by the media.  The Fear is kept at an all-time high, and whether we realise it or not, we are hooked into its system. And those prominent energies which surround us, ‘Like attracts Like’ and if we are not careful can devour us before we realise our vibration is being affected.

Just think how different we would perceive the world, if the media news only ever told us the good news.. Those stories of others helping others. Those who jump in and rescue, save, and support other human beings. Who do so from instinct and the goodness of their hearts.. Not seeking financial gain..  Those stories of people who put their own lives at risk to help another human being.. Or who save an animal and rescue it. Going the extra mile, to show compassion and Love..

If we heard more of this GOOD NEWS pumped into our homes from the media, we would then begin to feel safe, secure, happy that the world out there was not filled with death and destruction, war and violence..

Our perception would be Changed. We would then have that Feel Good Factor that would perhaps ripple out as more would contribute and do the same. Like attracts Like

The North Korea Crisis is a good example right now.  Those who live in North Korea are taught we are the enemy, they know no different. Because they are told and kept in the dark about the outside world..  They too are ruled within a regime of fear. And so are we, yet we cannot see it half the time.  Their perception is limited to that which their government tells them what to believe..

As I wrote my thoughts they then spun to the laws of Polarity. Opposites, two sides of a coin.. The Yin and Yang, Good and Bad, Light and Dark. Winter and Summer..

Polarity representing the two extremes of one thing.   Yet when does Winter change into Summer, when does Cold Water turn into Hot. These two Poles are the extremes of the same thing in continuum. Yet they each blend into each other in various degrees at both ends of the scale.  And So too, do we travel a fine line between Good and Bad.

Many of us who have woke up, do so through travelling through an emotional crisis, how many of you have had to turn inward through emotional pain to seek answers.  We go within, back to our hearts, our Centre.  We all of us have been faced with making choices and in a recent post I talked about how we had to trust in those choices and follow our instincts.

The world appears now to be in Crisis,  Yet how can we help it? We do so by not allowing ourselves to get caught up within the Fear, we have to find our own Middle ground. And take a step back to observe just what we are creating.

We Hope beyond Hope that the world will change.. But Hoping is not enough.. To change the world we sometimes need to see the Good Bad and the Ugly, to see what needs to be changed. Our personal crisis’s often occur to bring about a shift, that makes us aware of what needs changing in our own lives. It makes us take a deeper look, and then we have a choice, to either change or not. The Choice is always ours.. The world is asking us to take a deeper Look at ourselves..  

Our reality we are witnessing NOW, is what WE have created,  We live in our 3D world which reflects most things as Good or Bad, Black and White.. We either become optimistic of pessimistic in our views, Optimism expects more of the world, Pessimism expects the negative.  If we expect Doom and Gloom then that is what we will get.

Optimism works on a higher frequency of vibration and Pessimism on a lower level. Our thoughts are Energy, and it’s our thoughts which create our reality into being.  Look around you, everything was once an idea, someone’s thought, set into motion by Action.

Each of us have the power to choose, and in choosing to lift our vibration, we can create harmony and balance. Often its by going through our Dark night of the soul we learn to shed that conditioning, as we learn to Let go of our negative patterns that keep us trapped within Fear.

Maybe our Earth is showing us, her dark side, in order for us to observe, just what kind of a future do we wish to create.. Do we want some apocalyptic future that it seems the movie makers keep producing, or do we want a New Earth, One that thrives, instead of destroying, One that Loves instead of Hating, One that is filled with Peace instead of War..

Until we change our own internal Wars, and until we go within and find the centres of our own Being and find our own balance within that continuum of the Polarities of Love and Hate,  Unity and Separation.  War and Peace.. Until we find Balance and Love in our own hearts nothing will change. 

The pendulum will swing whichever way we choose..

May we Choose Well.

The Good, Bad and Indifferent.

A couple of evenings ago I wrote a lengthy piece in my journal. I just wanted to get things off my chest and so I wrote and wrote.

 I spoke about our thoughts, I spoke about our judging of others. Saying we all judge, be it by status, gender, wealth, colour, religion, nationality.

I spoke about Truth, and how we seldom stretch ourselves to see the Truth of the world. This illusion, which holds us prisoners to become slaves to greed. As we buy into the beliefs of consumerism and debt. That never ending carrot which is dangled before us, that ties in so many to be forever slaves to debt.. I spoke how the commercial world Soft soaps and dupes us by clever advertising that lures us in, to make us believe we need all the things we can quiet easily live without that often many go into dept for just to keep up with the latest trends..  

I spoke about our thoughts, and how they spin us into the creation of our future, and how we constantly judge, and cannot see the Ugliness of our own thoughts that spin out in judgement on a daily basis. Be they to criticise how someone looks, dresses, speaks, behaves, We all of do it constantly, in condemnation, discrimination, that then turn to jealousies, bullying and hateful behaviours that stain and taint and blacken our natures, that drives bitterness and vindictiveness to sour our world.

I spoke about education. And to what we are exposing our children to.  How children are no longer allowed to be children and play. And how pressure of parents and education are pilled ever higher upon their young shoulders to succeed. So, the education systems often lose sight of the child as they become statistics as schools are rated by performances.

I wrote on how the film, media and gaming industries promote violence, war, murder, and rape. And then we wonder why the world is mirroring back such acts of violence.  And why we have become so desensitised, so we barely blink an eye in response.  Why so many live in a surreal world of virtual reality. And I wrote about how many are turning to escape the realities of living as suicides increase in our young, and more synthetic drugs come into their possession.  

I went on about living in our own little boxes, to which we categorise, label, then often shutting the lid, we try not to think about the suffering on going in so many parts of the world. So in recompense, to appease our conscience’s, we can often be seen tossing a few coins into some charity jar to make us feel we are doing something worthwhile to help the world. 

I spoke about how those who have become King of their own particular Forests no longer see the trees that surround them. They no longer see through eyes that reach up to the heavens to see why acid rain falls to Earth. They do not see the burnt forests or the indigenous lives destroyed. While smoke settles on the wind out of lands that drive families across borders with nothing other than their lives. All they see is their own importance as their own greed consumes them so their hearts are as black as the scorched earth they have devoured .. 

I asked what kind of a species have we become.. and to what are we turning into that we can watch our Children suffer as we destroy their future world.

In fact my writing was quite a rant!! Which is toned down for this post.

But then I went on to speak about HOPE.. That all elusive word that keeps us hanging on..

HOPE, Hope is a word we use often. How many times do we rely upon Hope

H – Helping ourselves to

O – Optimism in times of

P – Pain, we hope against hope that

E – Everything will turn out just fine.

 Well, I have said enough about all that is Bad… Now what about the GOOD. 

That is the theme for next time..

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
