Some of you may know that I have been off work for a while with a bad back. It’s a problem I’ve had for many years. Usually my back ‘goes’, I rest up for a few days them go back into work and basically just work through the pain. This time, however, I have not been able to do that. I’m not sure if it’s because I am a little older or if I have just done too much damage in the past, not giving my body time to heal but it is certainly taking it’s time this time around!
The positive side to having had so much time off work is that I have really had time to reflect on what is important in life and what triggers my stress and negative energy. I have really noticed that, although I have been in a lot of pain, I have not been stressed out at all. I have not been screaming at my kids in the morning when they take aeons to get ready. I have not been moaning at my husband for not hanging his clothes up and using the floor as a clothes horse. I have not been having palpitations worrying if I have forgotten to do something. I have not been waking up at night because my brain is in overdrive thinking about all the things I have to do tomorrow. In short, I have now realised that I need to change my job, and fast!
All the great speakers and motivational experts say the same thing…….you must take a chance to make a change.
The three ‘C’s’……..
You must make the CHOICE, to take the CHANCE, if you want anything in life to CHANGE!
How many times have we heard this. We know it to be true but when you’re stuck in the rat race of 9 – 5 with a mortgage, bills to pay and kids to feed and clothe it’s not that easy to see a way out. Many of these great experts offer opportunities and programmes you can sign up to or join, most cost money that the likes of you and I don’t have.
Bob Proctor said that you don’t have to know how to do it, you just have to do it.
Below are some pointers to help you on your way:
Being at home has made me realise that my job, although rewarding on so many levels, is not what I want to be doing with my life. I want to help people, for sure, this is what I do now, but I don’t want to work for ‘The Man’ any more. The ambiguous nature of my job is so frustrating. People making decisions about how I do my job that have no idea how it will affect the people I am supposed to be helping or how difficult it may actually make my job. The caring nature of the job is rapidly being removed and replaced with something clinical and devoid of emotion. I am expected to tuck away my emotions and feelings and perform as a robot without questioning the motives or effect of change. Often, when change happens, it is reversed shortly afterwards because it does not work or fit. To and fro, back and forth, the job is ever evolving, sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse. It’s the lack of consultation or involvement with the ‘staff’ that frustrates me the most. Things could be so much simpler, change could happen more seamlessly and without such disruptive consequences. Change is good and a necessary part of life but consultation and working together is the key to ‘good’ change.
In this ever changing world so much is about the pound note, cost, profit margins, budgets. When did money become more important than life?
God did not create this universe for us to wallow in the shadow of currency. We were put here to love and nurture each other and our beautiful planet.
Currency is important, I get that, we have made it that way and until the day comes when we realign ourselves with God and the Universe that is how it must be. But, we all have a choice, we can continue with our mundane 9 – 5 rat race or we can make the choice, to take the chance, to make the change!
I know I want to help people be the best they can be. Helping others is what I am meant to do. It’s in my bones and the very nature of me. I know that is why I get so frustrated at work. I am restrained by the ‘powers that be’ and the confines of my job. I am unable to help those who need it most and it breaks my heart. Frustration and an ever increasing workload, limited time and resources all result in one unhappy and stressed me!
Time for a change. Time to be brave and take a chance. I know I have a choice. My choice, nobody else’s.
So why does ‘the fear’ keep rearing its ugly head?

WHAT IS YOUR LIFE PURPOSE?
How often do I ask myself this question. Some days I feel clear about exactly what I am here to do. Others I feel totally lost. Most of the time I just fumble through day to day life with no real direction or sense of purpose.
Without purpose we can still lead happy lives. If we are content to just float from one day to the next, going with the flow. The problem with having no purpose is that there is always, ALWAYS, something missing. We don’t know what it is. But there is always that nagging feeling in the back of our minds that we are missing something.
WE WERE ALL SENT HERE WITH A PURPOSE!
Each and every one of us came into this world with a purpose. Before we were born we knew what we were coming here to do. What our ‘mission’ was. We had a clear plan set out in our heads. Our life purpose is a small part of a bigger picture to create a world of love and peace. Before we are born we know what our part in this ‘world vision’ is. However, as soon as we are born we become unconscious and we forget what we were born to do. It is up to us to wake up and remember our PURPOSE!
It never leaves us. It is always there in our subconscious mind. All we have to do is remember.
HAVE YOU EVER HAD THAT NAGGING FEELING?
Have you ever had that nagging feeling, deep in your gut, that you should be doing something? I distant memory that you can’t quite recall. An intuition to do something or learn something or call someone? That’s your life purpose trying to surface. You are being guided by God or the Universe (whatever you want to call it) to wake up and remember. You are being guided towards the right path.
What we do may seem insignificant in the grand scheme of things but each and every one of us has a small part to play. Each of us has a gift that works perfectly with the next persons to bring into play God’s master plan for His beautiful planet and all the wonderful inhabitants that reside here.
Why does the end of the world have to be some apocalyptic tragedy? Can the end of the world not just be the end of life as we know it. Did God not promise that we would all someday life in a world of love and peace and harmony? A world without war or hate or pain. Why can it not be about a spiritual awakening?
ASK FOR HELP TO REMEMBER YOUR LIFE PURPOSE
If, like me, you are still unsure of your life purpose ask for Gods/the universe’ guidance. Ask for a sign that you are on the right path. Follow your intuition. Do not ignore those nagging feelings that you should be doing something. Follow your joy for this is a sure sign you are on the path that is right for you.
Take the first step and you will soon see that you are guided to things and people who support your purpose. The more you move along your journey the more confident you will feel and the more you will remember about your pre birth vision and it’s significance in the wider picture of a new ‘world vision’.
I have spoken before about the Celestine Vision and the series of books that were written on this subject. The second book in this series talks more about a ‘world vision’ and how we each play a part in it. Even if the ideas are far fetched and fanciful isn’t it a great idea? How much better would our planet be if we all worked together for the good of humankind and the our planet.
I believe I am slowly waking up to my life purpose. I am learning more each day. I am learning to follow my intuitions and ‘gut feelings’. I am taking notice of my dreams and day dreams. They all have meaning. They are all messages guiding us in the right direction, putting us back on our path when we stray. We can choose to follow that path or ignore it. In the end it will be a matter of having lived a full and satisfying life or getting to the end and feeling that we have missed our chance.
Do you want to get to the end of this short time we have and meet the person you could have been and feel regret that you did not follow instincts? Or do you want to get to the end and feel like you have achieved what you set out to do before you were born?

On Friday a friend suggested I read The Shack by William P Young. She told me it was a religious book and probably my “cup of tea”.
All I can say is I couldn’t put it down! The book is a real emotional roller coaster. It really gets you thinking about your beliefs (or lack of them if that’s your thing), your attitude towards yourself and others, your attitude towards God, our planet, religion, faith, love, you name it!
My friend was right, this book is most definitely my “cup of tea” for so many reasons. I can’t recommend this book enough. It’s a real thought provoker. I can’t believe I’ve never heard of it before!
If you’ve read it I’d love to hear your thoughts. If not, I highly recommend you do! Please let me know what you all think.

What a great opportunity to meet new bloggers and promote your blog! Thank you Eric for this very generous opportunity. I love you blog and am happy to share it 😊
When you really look it is amazing the beauty that surrounds us all. I feel so blessed to be lucky enough to have a garden that I can call my own, that I can nurture and watch life take shape. The energy in my garden instantly lifts my spirit and makes me feel more connected to the ultimate life force of the universe.
Thank you for all my blessings 💞🌹🌱🍀🌞🌸🌺

For some reason there is an error on this post. It is not displaying properly in the reader. You may have to go directly to my site to view the complete post. Sorry for any inconvenience 😊
I have been dreaming a lot recently about writing this post but, as is the nature of a Virgo, I’ve been procrastinating about it! Mostly because I often lack self confidence, a trait I really need to work on. Anyway, today a fellow blogger ask for some pointers as they were stuck with something they’ve been trying to manifest. I realised that this was another gentle ‘shove’ from the universe not to ignore my dreams and intuition and crack on with writing the post! So here goes………..
Back to basics:
Rule no one when trying to manifest anything is to first visualise what you want. Now visualisation is different for everyone. Some people find it really easy to summon up vivid, clear pictures of exactly what they want as if it’s on a TV screen in their head. Others, myself included, can’t always do this. That doesn’t mean you’re doing it wrong! It simple means you have a different way of visualising. I like to sit quietly, where I won’t be disturbed, close my eyes a try to ‘picture’ what it is I’m trying to manifest. Like I said I don’t get clear pictures in my head, it’s more of a faded water colour floating in the background, but I know it’s there and what it is.
The next step is to connect with your vision, whether it’s a vivid image or just a blur, now feel it. Feel how you would if you already had it in your life. Feel the excitement, the joy, the love and gratitude. Hold that feeling, let it build inside you. Feel your vibration getting higher and your energy growing. Believe it is yours. You have already manifested it. Feel it. Now, let it go. Release it to the Universe and trust it’s on its way, like an online order if you like. All you have to do now is hold that feeling of gratitude you have and know it’s coming.
If you start to doubt, just sit again with your vision until you get the feeling back again. It is this feeling of gratitude that keeps you on the same vibrational frequency as the thing you are trying to manifest. By staying on the same frequency you can do nothing else but attract it towards you. It is not only the law of the universe but also the law of physics!
Vision boards are so much fun and a great manifesting tool. I like to do a new one every spring to symbolise new beginnings but you can create a vision board any time. You can also add to them or remove things as you go. All you need to create your own vision board is –
All you need to do now is get creative! Find images and quotes that inspire you and represent what it is you want to achieve. Have fun with it. Don’t limit yourself. Look for things you think are impossible, remember this is about manifesting whatever your heart desires not just putting a few pictures down of things you are already likely to achieve. That does not mean however that you can’t add those things to your board it just means you need to think outside the box.
Nothing was ever achieved without someone first thinking it was impossible.
A focus board is the same as a vision board but instead of being a collection of all different things you want to manifest it focuses on just one thing. Be it a new home or a new job or a new car. Your focus board will be all about this one particular thing. If it’s a new car put the exact colour, the alloys, the interior, words to describe how it feels when you drive it, what it smells like, the engine size………you get the picture.
Remember your vision board should be somewhere you can see it every day. When you look at it it should evoke feelings of excitement at its impending arrival!
My gratitude book is one of my favourite manifesting tools. I write in it every day, normally before bed so I go to bed full of gratitude for the blessings I have received throughout the day. The trick with this is to write in all the things you are grateful for that day, even the tiny things, you’ll be surprised at how much you have to be thankful for. I also write my gratitude intentions, all the things I want to manifest as if I have already received them. See my previous post ‘Get your gratitude on’ for more on this tool.
Remember that gratitude is the key to the Law of Attraction.
This one is new to me. You can now get a Reiki box app for you smart phone. You can add and remove intentions as you like then open it daily to send Reiki to your intentions. Intentions are written in the present tense as if they are already here, giving thanks and gratitude. It’s a great little app to keep you focused when on the move. You can also have a Reiki box in your home and write your intentions on a piece of paper. Like I said this one is still new to me and I’m still learning.
I hope you find these tools helpful. Feel free to share some of your own manifesting techniques as we can all do with a helping hand sometimes.
