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.


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


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.

Finding our Hearts.

 Finding our Hearts

Photo taken at Rufford Abbey UK.

Seeking, Searching, where do we begin?

Life times of debris beneath our skin

Digging, Delving, opening up old wounds

Peeling away shadows, expelling old fumes,


Life times of hauntings, the nightmares that cling

Each layer we peel is not without its sting

Yet the deeper we go, the higher we rise

As we tare off the masks, revealing our true prize


For when you find your centre, your true self

Its priceless, and more precious, this is true wealth

Life becomes so simple, and your head becomes so clear

When you let go of Lack, and release all of your fears


Searching means exploring the power from within

Letting go of conditioning that began with original sin

The feminine is rising as the compassion and love expands

Embrace your brothers and sisters, extend a helping hand


For the pain we see reflected are the revealing layers

Set to ignite Compassion through Unity and Prayers

So don’t let the Fear Divide us, for it weakens and controls

Reach deep into your hearts, Let Love be our Goal.

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..

A Message for all those holding the Light right now.


Look around the world, what do you see?

Changes coming thick and fast for you and me

Time that whizzers faster than the pendulum swings

Changes are upon us in everything.

I’m sure you’ll agree as you see the Climate change

How everyone comments the weather’s gone all strange

With fires and floods and almighty winds

Changing lives forever as chaos reigns

How many get caught within the game of Life

Embracing the negative that causes such strife

Video games that zap, bash, and kill

Nullifying minds and the Human will

Look around your world and look into the sky

Have you not seen what they spray from on high?

When was the last time you felt really well?

Come on now think! Are you Happy! Can you tell?

Changes are upon us in everything we do

Less Jobs, Higher Bills, Oh and let’s not forget the Flu

Listen well, Changes will never stop

Do you really understand what it is that we forgot?

Have you ever thought about changing the way you think?

Do you not see this is the missing link..

The poor me, the have not’s and the endless moans and groans

Have you not thought to change the record and alter your tone?

Get out of the rut and release the heavy load

That we all chose to carry along our different road

Look around your world what has changed for you?

Have you given up? Or got strong, what do you do?

Changes are a part that makes us move and grow

But we need to change the seeds that we all sow

Look on the bright side see your glass half full

Think brighter thoughts, cast away the dull

If we want the world to change then we all need to see

It starts right here, as we change both you and me.

So Change your thoughts and add a little light

And for once just trust everything will be alright.

The above poem I wrote in 2010. I wondered what I could post that would reflect how so many of us get caught up within the negative flow.. It is important right now especially at this time of the Luna Eclipse to try to hold our space, our light, in the positive. And release that which we no longer need to hang onto. And not to get pulled into the negative. 

Our experiences will  be different for each of us, and for those who do not understand what I am talking about that is fine, but for those who know of what I speak as we hold Unity Consciousness, an important message from Lisa Transcendence Brown  I am sure you will find most enlightening,

I  will leave the comments closed upon this post, simply because I have a busy few days ahead of me .. Know you are all held within my thoughts. And I thank you so much for your wonderful kind and loving support.

See you all in  few days time..

Love and Blessings Sue ❤ 


The Maze- Matrix of Life.

Right now, it appears like we are trapped within a maze, each of us are searching for a way out. We may appear lost, going around and around in circles. We see other pointing their fingers, and blaming each other, as we formulate our own opinions about the world as each of us shout to be heard.  We jump up and down with our heads bobbing over the hedge as we try to see beyond our own path, to see if there are any shortcuts to find a better way.  Yet all the time we may fear what is beyond.

We constantly give our power away, by allowing others to overshadow our thinking, we have not only got lost within the maze. So engrossed are we, within the machinery of our illusionary world of Hollywood, computer games, iPhone’s, advertisements and politics, we no longer know what is true.  For our world is fabricated, manipulated and our senses are bombarded from all angles by those who wish us to be distracted and dumbed down.


We need to step out of the maze we have created for ourselves and learn to focus upon our inner world and our own energy. Our own ENERGY is so important..

Stepping out from the Maze can be daunting, for we can find ourselves feeling alone and lost, others will still be pointing their fingers at you, saying you are not fitting into their patterns and programming. So, you are made to feel different. As humans we fear change, so we may still want to cling onto the maze, the old patterns, our old ways of being, for they are our comfort zone, so we hang onto our guilt, our prejudices, blame, and our victim mentalities.


But once you are free of this thinking, you will find yourself detaching from fear and you then begin to pull in the energy of love, the love of self, and the love of Nature, as you begin to embrace Unity Consciousness.  You then see the world in a new perspective. As you understand we are all of us going through this process, all be it in different time zones.

Nature is asking us to engage in Oneness. She is showing us with all of her beauty just how at One we all are. She is showing you with her clouds, rain, storms, rainbows, earthquakes, Sunny days,  just how small each of us are within the scheme of the Universe. Yet she is also showing you how valued each of us are from the tiny insect to human kind, for each one of us is connected to the other.  Each affecting the WHOLE.


When you step beyond this Maze, you will find yourself trusting your own instincts, and going within the flow, as we cleanse and let go of belief systems. As we begin once again to trust our own inner compass to guide us to pursue the things which will empower us, and bring us fulfilment.

So, your world opens up as New realities present themselves. Showing you a New Earth, an exciting place where Synchronicities take place. Where you meet along your pathway like-minded souls who have travelled through their own dark mazes to emerge into this new world. Where we let go of the past, and we learn to forgive those who caused us pain. As we learn to walk into the Light of our own hearts again.


This journey is by no means an easy one to travel,  the only barriers are ourselves, each step leads us to discover more wonders about ourselves.   As we learn to work through these old patterns as we embrace Love, Unity, Peace and Happiness. As we work through the Quantum fields of Unity Consciousness.

This journey will be different for each of us, for no one is the same. For we all have different agenda’s and pathways to work through.   For me right now, I am allowing my creative flow, I am writing more as I find myself writing in poetic stories. So, I am embracing what is coming forward as I go within its flow.


I am sleeping more, if I feel like a nap in the middle of the day, I embrace it. I awake feeling refreshed. My sleep patterns are fitful, I know in dream time I am working more, as stories come forth of the past, I feel I am releasing and letting go, as I meet in sleep state those I need to help and those who are helping me.

 I have always embraced nature, but I make time to spend more time out in nature, blending, feeling the beauty of Mother Earth.  I notice minuet things, petals, insects, as the flora and fauna show me how interconnected we are.  

Some of you may be finding a new focus in your life, or taking a step back to relax and be in your own space more. Whatever you do, do it with love in your hearts and embrace your moment of Now. For there truly is no other better one than this moment to start the changes needed to change the rest of your Life.

When we embrace and respect our lives and all that we have been given, and we learn from a point of gratitude, and not waste our opportunities, we need to make our lives count.  Each of us now are beginning to discover our purpose. Make the most of yours and in doing so, you help each of us make the most of ours.. 


The photos were taken on a walk in Chatsworth Gardens in Derbyshire inside the house grounds this week..

 It was a perfect day to reflect and be at One..

Thoughts of A Dreamwalker

Stoney Middleton Well Dressing which the children of my old village school made July 2017.


It has been a while since I did a post upon my thoughts. Mainly I think as these days I am trying not to think too much.. The moment I get caught within our linear world of thinking, I find I can too easily be dragged into despair as the bombardment of our senses continues to be plagued by the negative illusion we all so easily sink into.

I wonder why that is, what is it about our humanness that makes us seek out the woe, rather than the joy of living? I know if I do not check my own thoughts, how easily I can get embroiled as my empathic being reaches out into the masses of the many drama’s that unfold around our world.

I tell myself often, that these drama’s are not my Story, they are not my reality, yet in truth when you come to see our Oneness, they are indeed our own stories.. For who among us has not judged or cursed, and vented anger at something in our lives.  Who among us has not inflicted a wound upon another however unintentionally be it via our words or deeds.

Learning to raise our vibration is not an easy road. For we can so easily fall over the many obstacles laid in our paths that trap us and prevent us from lifting ourselves to our New Earth..

Many may think this New Earth is but a figment of our imagination. But this also makes me smile.. Why? Well, in this world we now live, is it  not also created by our imagination.

Is not all that we see here within our modern day existence once a thought within some creative mind in the past.  Be it the Architecture of our dwelling and buildings ,  our communication devices, our film industry, TV, along with our modes of transportation.  Not to mention the leaps and bounds made in technology over the internet.. All once a figment of someone’s imagination that was projected out into reality to be created within our world.

 It is not so long ago we were witnessing the birth of TV in the (1920’s.) And look how that fantasy became a reality that has sparked yet more progression within our technology.   The Age was referred to as the Roaring Twenties.  This great age of expansion was swiftly followed by another Age. The Deep Depression where in the (1930’s) gave rise to economic meltdown, unemployment, poverty and political extremism.

When you look back in History, each ‘age’ brought us to the next..  The Stone age, The Iron Age, The Bronze Age, I went to look up some of these ages.. And was interested to see the various ‘Ages’ listed here in the  and their listing of Major Periods During History  ,  This list is well worth a visit.. One Age brought to my attention was the last to be mentioned within this list, which was the  Civil rights Movement (1950s-1960s) On reading further into the people who fought for Human Rights, is another amazing list of people who throughout the decades in history have fought for the Human Rights  and Freedoms of People.

We are now within another crucial time frame within our Earths History I feel. Sometimes we are too closely embedded into it to see clearly the whole picture of the age we are creating within our Now.. We have to  at times stand back and see just what is happening, as we view our chaotic world as coming apart at the seams..

You know I was a seamstress for many a year, working in textiles.. And sometimes the only way to correct something that went drastically wrong in the makeup of something, was to unpick it and resew it. Or scrap it all together and start again.. Our world is being unpicked at the seams.. And no amount of bodging it will make it come right..   And until we all of us see, that what each of us are putting out into the world, be it via our judgements, anger, frustrations or ignorance.. It will keep on reflecting back to us that which we put out into it..

If I want a peaceful world I have to start and create it within my own reality.. 

So, lets say I am projecting my thoughts to create a New Earth,  this is why I am spending more time, being creative, and just so enjoying the Peace within my garden and out within Nature.. Projecting as much Peace, love and Harmony that I can muster into the world..

 We are coming up to an important date within our Universal Calendar in that this month sees two Luna Eclipses. Now I am no Astrologer by any thoughts of the imagination.. But I am well versed with how our planets affect our moods and this is an ideal opportunity to get in touch with those emotions within and seek out the Light of Joy within your souls.   


Oh my, what a beautiful synchronicity. After just writing the above, an alert came in of a YouTube update of the upcoming Luna Eclipses.  I left off writing to go listen.. And this I have to share, if you have ten minutes to watch, As she just echoed some of my thinking. With more food for thought besides..   

Have a wonderful Weekend All of You.. 

Blessings Sue

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
