Wherever you may be, whatever you may be doing, whomever you are with,  may you celebrate this season with love, joy and peace.

I wish that going into 2015, that we see the world filled with peace and love. That life is all that you hoped for. That your dreams all come true and that you remember how truly wonderful you are as a co-creator of your life.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

At this special time of the year I wish you joy!

At this special time of the year I wish you joy!

As we all send our thoughts to those families that lost someone in the terrible shootings in Newtown Connecticut, I want to say that whilst the media focuses on such terrible tragedies as this…we must try to remember that humanity is basically a peaceful & loving race. Think of all the people you come into contact with who give of themselves freely so that they can make someone else’s life just that little bit better, that little bit happier. This is who we really are. We are not the actions of one very disturbed person. Think not of the tragedies but remember the giving & love that emanates from humanity everyday. Focus on the positive so that the Universe can send more positive action to us.

I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a very merry Christmas. May your holiday season be blessed with friends, family & Christmas cheer. Be safe, be happy & most of all be love.

Merry Christmas!

Until Next Time…Think Big & Blossom!

your brilliant year!

28 Nov

“Chestnuts roasting on an open fire                                                                                                                                                                                                Jack Frost nipping at your nose…”

Ahhh it’s my favourite time of year again! And yes, open fires in my part of the world at this time of the year, will usually get a hefty fine…bushfires & such being a major concern in an Aussie summer. But even though we have sun, sand & sea at Christmas, I still love the tradition of a snowy candlelit scene, Santa & his sleigh & all things Christmas!

As we roll into December, I am struck by the visible shift in the way people interact with each other. Everyone is a little more compassionate, a little more loving to total strangers & a little more merrier (although that could be the eggnog). Even people who don’t celebrate Christmas are swept up in the good will toward all men! If only we could carry this energy through with us for the other 11 months of the year.

December is also the month to take stock of the year that has been. And well I think it’s been a pretty brilliant year! Life is wonderful. Not because it’s been perfect & everything has gone right for me, ’cause it hasn’t, but because every day I got to wake up in my body, with my intelligence & with my sense of humour & go out into the world & experience LIFE!!! I got to wriggle my toes in the sand as the water lapped around my ankles. I got to hear the defiant chirp of my friendly  willy wagtail as he woke me nearly every morning. I got to feel the sun on my back & the wind on my face but most of all I got to hang out with some of my most favourite people – my nieces & nephews – & just be in awe of how they see the world, and for that I am truly grateful for the year that has been.

In the final days of 2012, organise your priorities – what dreams do you have for the new year? Prioritise what’s important to you. The things at the top of your list should be the things that bring you joy! They should receive your highest attention! Why? Because when we do what we love, more of what we love will follow. Could it be any simpler?

Celebrate all that you have done this year, celebrate all that is to come, but most of all celebrate that with love all things are possible.

Until Next Time…Think Big & Blossom!
