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 .

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Are YOU Ready? 

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

Love and Blessings



Art in the Making.

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

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

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

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

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

Have a Magical Sunday and a Beautiful New week. 

Love and Blessings

Look UP! and Soar…

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

I did.

I looked deep into my eyes beyond my eyelids

I travelled back in time before technology took hold

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


To a time when children would play outside in fresher air

When parents wouldn’t worry about the dangers out there

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

Before we were swamped in consumerism, and online shopping Adds


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

As their days events unravelled in polite conversations

Exchanging news, while eating their meal

While today, no one speaks, except for text spiel


No one looks up at the sky anymore

Earphones plugged in, downloads the score

Is it any wonder Nature is a mess?

She just reflects back our own destructiveness


We’ve forgotten to Respect, Care for and Love

The very gifts that were given from Source, above

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

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


When we become Creative, and align with our true essence

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

Synchronicity will astonish, when you Dream a better self

Your Intention creates an Outcome, creating pure wealth.


And I am not speaking of Gold, or monetary gain

The wealth I speak of is much more plain

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

Believe in its Magic,

Look in the mirror

Make a Start!.

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

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

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

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

Are we ready to soar?

Are you reinventing yourself? 

Are you following your Dreams?

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

I am in the FLOW 

Love and Light!


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.

A Time of Gathering.

Autumn colours as I walked yesterday

Walking out in Mother Nature is a gift I treasure, watching the changing seasons, absorbing each one with all her different merits, from Spring, through to Summer. Now Autumn is truly here, and its that time of harvest, of ‘gathering in.’

The heather shows us her colours~ What colours do we show the world I wonder.

  As I walked, I thought about how I love harvest time.. I love reaping in our harvest. And we all reap that which we have sown. 

Yesterday we harvested some of our first carrots.. A success story, as we often do battle with the  carrot fly, and pests, as we do not use any kind of chemical pesticides, So the carrot fly  has in the past rendered our carrots inedible.  This year with forethought and planing, we set them late, in a separate bed, covered them with a fine-mesh and left them be… Yesterday we lifted our first bunch of the season, they were perfect once the soil was scrubbed from them. 

Freshly picked yesterday

I wonder what forethought we put into our lives.. How well do we prepare our own Beds? And how often  do we allow those pests, those negative thoughts to gnaw and eat us away?

Each of us are unique individuals. Each different, yet we all belong to the same family.

Nature provides, and Nature takes.. Working close to nature gets you to see this fine balance that is working all the time.. Some years things will thrive, others not so. You get to see close up those spiders and their webs, I avoided some very large spiders yesterday as I picked Dahlias, they had weaved them between and only a trained eye spots them. And I have been caught out a time or two and received a nasty bite, that I had destroyed their web.  So I am mindful of them, and respectful as I can be, of the amount of effort that goes into weaving them.. 

We humans forget the power of Nature until she reminds us  with the might of her storms, as she bites into the fabric of our own homes, and wipes away all that we spend our time and energy in putting together.. We think we are all powerful, yet she can in seconds reduce us to rubble, reminding us she is never more dangerous than when we fail to respect her Power and  Might. 

While out walking, seeing the berries for the birds to harvest, and nuts for the squirrels, in between the blackberries, I spied something that at first glance looked pretty..

Deadly Nightshade more can be found about this plant here

But in fact the above plant is pretty deadly, and their single berries should NOT be eaten.. It  can often be found growing along side Wild Blackberry bushes, so care should be taken when harvesting, though their Single cherry like berries are easily distinguished.. 

Life holds both shades of light and darkness..  Both grow side by side… Learning to discern and differentiate is what sets us apart.  But if we did not have the dark we would not then know the light.. 

Learning to bridge our differences~ Railway bridge.

We are living in a world where we travel across Time Lines, visiting far away countries we see cultures that can be very different from our own.  Yet within each nation, no matter what culture, people experience both Joy and Sorrow, learning to overcome obstacles just as we do.  We are all of the same family, the Human Race. 

We need now more than ever to build bridges instead of walls that divide us. We do not need to wait until Spring to sow seeds.. We sow our seeds daily, in how our thoughts go out into the world.. We sow them with our compassion and with our love.. 

Gaia gives us daily our breath, our food and water.. She shows us how intricate we are weaved together.  She is also showing us how through our fragility we can Unify and grow together. She shows us how to reach out to each other, stretching a helping hand, as she brings us through her disasters, to help one another.. 

Her own time lines are altering, shifting, evolving as are we.  We can hear her rumbles.. 

When we gather together, and we align our hearts, when we each generate out Light and Love from our hearts. Those thought patterns  go out into Nature and into our communities we are sowing that which we each would like to reap. May we understand all is experience within our Human Heart Grid. The Web is what we weave around the Earth. 

I hope as we each begin to understand, we are all of us co-creators upon our Earth plane. That we gather our strength in our Oneness, Our Unity Consciousness. Sow that which we want to reap. Then may we gather in the harvest that we sow.  

May you all safely Gather in 

Love and Light


Trusting in the Choices we make

It may  appear we are surrounded in Negativity as we stand alone in our thoughts.

As I awoke from the dream where many voices were all trying to be heard at once, yet no one voice could make themselves understood. I reached for my journal. My pen hovered over the blank page, knowing I should write, I waited. Sending a thought out to the Universe in acknowledgement that a message would be forthcoming.


I awaited the words that would follow, as I trust in the process of my guided thoughts, the pen then moved and  ……………………………….          TRUST       was  the second word that appeared upon the page.  Trusting in the process, something I’ve learnt to do all my life.  And so, the words  began to form. 

Trusting in the choices I’ve made, choosing to trust in those choices. Trusting our instincts.

Each day we all have choices to make, some small, some large. Each of us knows somewhere deep inside of us if those choices feel right or wrong.  No, I won’t say wrong, because even wrong choices we chose for a reason, and they can also end up to be the right ones.

Trusting our instincts, our gut feelings have led me to make some wonderful choices. And when I have knowingly gone against those better instincts, when I have not followed my gut, and instead listened to my ego head. I have also instinctively known, I could have made a better choice.

But they were my choices, my decisions, I made them. And in making them, they have also led me deeper to TRUST in those instincts, to follow the ‘Signs’ the ‘Synchronicities’  that lead us onto our chosen pathway. So even when those choices could have been better, they also led me to knowing myself even deeper.

Last week I made a choice to disconnect for a time from my blogging world. I knew instinctively, I needed time out for ME.. Time to recharge, to create, to be still, and collect together my thoughts.

A family bereavement nudged me to make that initial choice of retreat for a while, as I wrote a Eulogy that ended a chapter of a well-loved life. As I was asked and given the honour to speak at my sister-in-law’s husband’s funeral last week.

 But we are never alone. We are Many hearts gathered together in Love. 

So, I made the choice to embrace Nature as I walked in her fields.  I created space to meditate, to draw and doodle, paint. I baked, I sat in silence, I played music, lighted candles, and prayed. I Sang, laughed, cried and wrote poetry.

I turned on the modem several times, intending to reconnect, seeing the beauty of hearts that collect here in Dreamwalker’s Sanctuary.  And I thank you for your hearts, your comments and your patience in my still getting to reply.

Yet I followed my Instincts, as I stayed within my silent space a little longer. As if to back that up, I got an eye infection a couple of days ago. Another Sign I needed to LOOK at. While I am using eye drops to clear the infection, I know there is still something within me that is shifting, that is still needling to be cleared.. So I am trusting in the process, following my instincts.  

The world is in this process of clearing and cleansing. My thoughts turn to Texas and the many places around our globe who have suffered disasters recently found themselves under the deluge of our Earth Mother’s Tears.  As she attempts to clear and cleanse.  So many lives, grieving and mourning their loss of loved ones around the world.  Many who are now having to make new choices, as they learn to let go of the material world we surround ourselves with, as possessions are lost.  

This morning I was all set to reconnect, and catch up with your beautiful comments.. Yet a long very long new Windows 10 update put paid to that. Another ‘Sign’, I am taking as I take a few more days to allow my eye to heal..

Taking time out to reflect, and pull in the vibration of Calm, Peace and Love.

I just ask that each of you pay heed to the choices you are making right now..  Trust in the process as you allow yourselves to go deeper within, Trust, in your choices, to let go of fear. Embrace Peace and Love in your hearts.

I am taking time out to align and adjust to the frequencies that I feel are coming into Earth right now since the Luna Eclipse. Is there not something within you right now, speaking to you to turn off the technology and reconnect to your Inner Being? Have you felt these changes?  I feel we are within an interesting month. Allow Love and Peace to be your reality and avoid if you can getting caught up within all of the Fear Mongering.

Love and Peace..


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..

Love and Blessings


Amid the Blooms.

Hollyhock as a storm brews

Among the scents of the cool evening air

I sit amid the blooms where the gentle breeze stirs

The nodding heads of petals with nectar and pollen ripe

Attracts the Bee and Butterfly and Moth by night



The Fairy Lights are twinkling by the trickle of the pond

As a deep Sigh escapes me, this is where I belong

The Earth beneath my feet, as stars do shine above

Sitting among such beauty within a garden that I love


It could have been an open meadow that holds a babbling brook

I close my eyes and upon a journey I am took

Deeper now I am breathing, as I recall my day

Seeing Butterflies and Bees in a field rich with hay


In gratitude, my thanks to all creatures do I give

For all of Natures Blessings, that enable me to live

And the Spiral keeps on turning as Seasons come and go

Who could miss such beauty, as Mother Nature gives her show


Content a deeper sigh escapes with thanks as I say Goodnight

Tomorrow is another day to welcome in the Light.

Written 19th July 2017.

The above photo’s were taken from the Hydrangea’s in my garden.. The bees have loved these flowers. And although I have not seen as many butterflies this year, I was so happy to spot this Red Admiral 


I hope you all continue to enjoy Nature and make time to connect to her healing energies . And I thank each and every one of you for the Love you bring here to me. 

Love and Blessings

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
