Sometimes when a day turns out to be challenging on my mind and spirit, I just stop. I feel the need to ground and centre myself. I remind myself that life is changeable, a cycle: even if clouds obscure the sun momentarily, it still shines for us eternally behind those clouds. When I feel overwhelmed with stress and disappointment, I kiss my cat. I tell her, wiping away a few tears: 'The only thing that matters is that I love you and you love me.' She is my Secret Shifter. She helps me to shift focus, change my feelings and shift my frequency. She soothes my soul. Yesterday was a challenge, today is a new day.

An e-mail this morning from a true grounded angel, my friend Luz:
'Darling, keep smiling, the sun is shining for you, to warm you and revitalise you (and your garden). Make it a beautiful day as you make everything else around you.' Luz Berriman
Oh, how I need to hear those words today.

Today I'm grateful for the gift of movement and a body that loves exercise. I am filled with energy for organising and clearing my space and my mind. My thinking is peaceful, calm and centered. I love endorphins! I'm happy to feel a spring in my step again!

My goals are attainable, my dreams will be realities. I have the innate tenacity, talent and focus to make the changes in my life I know I need to make. It's my intention this moment to focus my drive, engage my iron will (yes, the same one that makes me crazy most days) and regroup. I will forgive myself if changes seem to take a long time to happen and try to get perspective. I will make a manageable start. I will continue creating a more authentic voice, a healthier body, a safe inner space where I can feel more settled in myself and in my life. I am learning to embrace every aspect of myself and accept the changeable days of this journey.

Living ~ Creating ~ Being ~ Hoping ~ Dreaming ~ Growing ~ Transforming ~ Believing ~ Grieving and Healing
This is my new blog: it's about living ~ creating ~ being ~ hoping ~ dreaming ~ growing ~ transforming ~ believing ~ grieving and healing. I've created this blog as a way to record my progress in balancing healing and living, to create a daily description of thoughts, insights and inspirations at each moment of my healing journey. It's a personal account of what inspires me, what enlightens me, what surprises me, what comforts me, what delights me, what challenges me, what is meaningful to me and what uplifts me - anecdotes, discoveries and revelations. I thank all the sources of my inspiration, beautiful things I've gathered from hundreds of sources and plan to post here as a type of visual inspiration diary. This blog is my way of reflecting on ALL the steps I'm taking to transform my life, heal my soul and through this experience of transformation, find my purpose.
Love and light,
'The most potent incidences of beauty were the ones that felt like personal discoveries, that seemed to have been meant specifically for you, as if some vast Intelligence had singled you out and wanted to show you something.' Specimen Days: Like Beauty by Michael Cunningham.
