You are beautiful so just BE YOU



How often do you look in the mirror and recognise your own beauty?  I don’t mean the external appearance staring back at you but the real you. The you that often hides deep inside there only daring to show part of yourself to the world.  I have been there and still have days where I remind myself it is okay to just be me. In fact, I would make a pretty crap job of being anyone else.  I have tried I guess… putting glitter on my face, going to yoga, saying the word Namaste at times it didn’t feel authentic, ‘liking’ people’s tattoo pics on Facebook when I didn’t like them (the tattoo not the person of course), not honouring the fact that there are people out there that I just click with and others… put me next to them in a room and I haven’t got a clue what to say. The mask, the persona, whatever you want to call it… I didn’t really recognise it as much at the time as we tend to get more clarity in hindsight a lot of the time. 

I can struggle with ‘small talk’ and as much as I have got an outgoing side to me there’s also a deeply private part that doesn’t want to discuss my personal life with just anyone. I spent years attempting to be the outgoing chatty one when inside I just couldn’t be bothered with the incessant chat, the wanting others to like me and accept me yet on the other hand not giving a shit about what people think… is that a Scorpio trait I wonder?


I have had times where I have recognised the ease, grace and flow that comes with just being me, following my own psychic sat nav and feel good enhancers. I have had years of self-development work and internal accessing; sweeping out those corners and crevices of my shadow. I found the frightened little child and cheered her up, I took my adult self out clubbing and got boozy, I have navigated the minefield of several relationships (that one has been a tough one at times!) I have absorbed others insights and information yet discovered that their template did not fit mine.  There is always an essence of valuable information we can gain from every single person on this planet and each of it will filter to us in different ways.  There is no right nor wrong way here; it is a case of getting up each day and listening to what your higher self or Soul is saying.  Sometimes this may be muffled like your higher self is sitting up there (wherever there may be!) with a set of ear defenders on not listening to our wants and desires. Please be assured our Soul knows exactly what it is doing! My problem (for want of a better word) has been ‘getting in my own way’… elements of fear, control, worry all dotted on my landscape of beauty and peace. Recently there have been so many more moment where my smile has been from the heart, my words more authentic and I am embracing the inner glow that is growing brighter. I have been exploring creative projects, spent more time over in Holland, been on a ferry for the first time (okay when I asked for my life to be rocking I wasn’t sure this was what I meant as I still felt the motion the next day!) and generally taking more steps out of my comfort zone.  I have tapped into my own Source of everything… my own Source of love, abundance, peace, inspiration… everything and nothing.  The zero point of stillness is more accessible and the allowing myself to enjoy every moment. I know life is taking me (or I am taking me I should say) in new directions… the new ideas, nudges, confidence to just go for it regardless of what others think. It took another incident a few months ago where a ‘friend’ aired her not-so-nice views and comments about me on Facebook (cheers you were heaven sent as another beautiful catalyst) that made me take another cold hard look at my own patterns and behaviours. What caused a massive ouch at the time turned out to be such a brilliant thing to happen. I am enjoying spending time with those I really connect with and care about, detached from giving two hoots about who ‘likes’ my posts or me and focusing on the divine beauty and bliss within me.  The more I stay in this place the better ‘service’ I am to others so it is a win-win situation. I do send love to everyone and I say this from my heart. I can send love and good wishes to every sentient being on this planet but do not have enough hours in my day to hang out with you all. Keep loving your inner self and appreciating all that you are. xx

Why the bruising is a blessing


angel comfort

I have sat opposite someone passing on loving messages of validation, healing and comfort following a loved ones transition home to the Spirit world; a return to where the Soul is held in the love of the infinite Universe. Several times I have been shown an angel rubbing a soothing cream onto the person’s heart area and I have been told that they are healing the ‘sore bits’. Our pain is being alleviated and we are being reminded that we are always loved and that even though the physical presence is no longer with us they love we shared is never lost. This earth incarnation and life can come with such a myriad of emotions that we can go from feeling somewhat battered and bruised to feelings of intense and immense love. Every experience is there to help us grow into Love.

Throughout my life I too have experienced times where I have felt knocked and have let myself get caught up in the drama, the anger, the frustration and the questioning of it all. Every time I felt I was bruised there was a Light within that grew brighter. An inner voice reminding me that I was worthy and that I had chosen this path.  I have made ‘mistakes’ as I learnt and evolved. When the Light was dim I learnt to look within.

‘The Fear’ can creep in and consume us and the separation from our true, infinite loving self can feel as if we are alone; we reach out looking for the love and validation from others. Our Soul knows our truth and when we take the time to connect with the loving wise parts of ourselves we can honour and comfort those parts of us that are crying with pain.

I do know our thoughts, words and beliefs shape our reality but this river of life can take us down the rapids of resistance. We forget we know this and we let it slide. Our angels and guides are there to nudge us, to remind us and to awaken us. When we lavish in Love and focus on the beauty of this world our energy lifts, our moods brighten and we can once more function from a place of knowing and trust.

We are all doing out best at every moment and yes hindsight can make us stop and reflect on our past choices which brought us to where we are now but we can stop now and envision the future we desire and change this pattern.

Every person we come into contact with is there to help us; they can show us where we need to love more, where we need to trust more, where we need to hold onto that beautiful Light that resides within us.

I often sit and reflect on my life and recognise that without my ‘bad experiences’ I would not be the person I am today.  To be a conduit of loving messages from Spirit, a channel for healing energy and to be blessed in all the ways I am I had to go through my ‘training’ on some level to take me to this place within my mind and my heart.

I spent years feeling ‘not good enough’ even while doing this work in Service to Spirit. I had to learn to open my heart up even more to receiving Love on a deep level. I have been feeling more shifts and opening and as I let more in the more flows out.

I was not brought up with any belief in angels nor anything else in fact but these last 20 years have opened me up to magic, miracles, love, faith, trust and so much more.

When life feels like it is hard and things are tough, it can get better, it will get better. We all have a guardian angel and access to many Beings of Light who are there to guide us but we have to give them ‘permission’ to help us. When I first heard about angels years ago I was unsure but my questioning mind simply asked “if you are there then please show me” and my life changed from there.

I had already attended spiritualist churches, read books, asked questions and looked into my own Soul but it was attending Doreen Virtue’s Angel Therapy Practitioner course in 2003 that really changed my life. The year after that I took the leap of faith to leave the corporate world, believe in myself and become self-employed.

Synchronicity, signs and soul-awakening… a nervous break-through at times… I am still opening up my heart, bathing in the bliss of it all and excited at what life is bringing.











love all aspects of you…


P1060006Love that small child inside of you

a new lease of life


new profile pic NL


I have just spent a few days over in The Netherlands (Holland to some) and this was the 3rd visit there albeit the previous trip was around 6 years ago so I was really looking forward to going over again and I was staying in a beautiful village up north. This was the first time I had flown on my own and I had to give myself a gentle nurturing pep talk on how I was being looked after and it would be no bother… after all I have been on plenty holidays abroad and the flying part I actually love… this angel loves watching the clouds float by (or are we floating by them?) and looking down on the ground and being able to also look at my life from that higher perspective. I loved the vibe of people watching at the airport and following this reminder coming from a friend prior to my trip I kept requesting (in my head not out loud at the airport or I many have attracted some weird looks!) for ‘the most benevolent outcome’ for every part of my trip and trusted that my guardian angel (& the Universe at large) would ensure it all worked out perfectly. As I waited in the departure lounge I started speaking to a lovely woman who had a baby in a buggy and the cute wee baby had a gorgeous mop of hair and was wearing an adorable tiger onesie. I asked the mum if she wanted to go in front of me as where I was I was before her in the queue. She declined and said she would just wait. I love children and chatting to someone else I forgot I was there on my own. As I sat down on my seat on the plane later the same woman and child appeared at my side… they were in the seat next to me!  We chatted and it turns out we shared similar beliefs and the baby (she was one year old) slept soundly throughout the flight and I was there in no time. First step… no problem!!

I was met at Schiphol airport and the next 4 days brought me so much of which I will share more later. I have felt such a shift and transformation and my heart opened so much more and the love flowed all weekend.  The adventures, conversations, connection and  change of scene and stepping back from the busy life I have here in Aberdeenshire was just what I needed. I have come back with a new lease of life and a heart full of love.

I can sense this year is going to be such a heart-opening year for so many and we are all being reminded that we are surrounded by benevolent loving beings of Light who guide and support us on our journey. Invite them in. Love yourself enough to rejoice in the wonder that is you!!





You are your own guide




What is holding you back?

What would it take for you to just ‘go for it’?

Name 5 things that you are grateful for in your life today… breathe deeply and feel the sense of love and gratitude you have for those people or things

Now see in your mind one thing you have always wanted but for some reason have never attempted or allowed yourself to go forward towards…

is it the area of Love?

are you longing to escape a depressing job that leaves you feeling lifeless?

do you feel a burning desire to travel, to explore, to go on more adventures?


I have been asking myself these questions too and had to laugh when I realised how I have walked over hot coals and broken glass, broken arrows at my throat, walked the high wire, went down the zip slide, into a gorge, into a kayak on my own as I slid off a bank into the lake and much more in the quest for adventure and breaking through my own barriers of ‘fear’ yet the thought of travelling anywhere on my own filled me with dread.


I sat with these feelings and why I felt so scared. I don’t mind flying, I talk to new people every day in my line of work and that’s okay, I love going away on holidays just haven’t had the abundance to do so that often so far in my life.  I know that once I travel more I will be hooked, I can sense it.

These feelings were ‘inner child’ stuff that I have had to sit and work through and also related to experiences as a Sales Rep years ago getting lost and not having a mobile phone back then to find out where to go and subsequently letting a client down.  I have broken down in my car/s over the years and have been left alone at the side of the road in the dark for hours waiting to be rescued. I worked my way through a list of triggers and blocks and you know what I realised… I got through them all, I am still here, I survived everything life has thrown at me so far and I will continue to do so.


So long story short… the flights are booked and I will be flying on my own


but we all know we are never alone really are we!


What are you willing to do that you never have before?







Healing the collective grief



Let me just say I am no expert in world affairs, politics, economics and the like yet I read and I research to inform myself of what is going on in the world. The media will give us their side of the story and my intuitive senses often give me another.  I don’t know all the answers yet I and many others know that war is not the answer. Keeping the vicious cycle of ‘an eye for an eye’ has never worked effectively in the past it seems or would we be still be in this position?  There is so much that could be said on the current state of affairs and all I wish to add just now is that awareness is the key… look beyond what is being reported in mainstream media?

Does your heart really tell you that bombing is the answer?

Could you send your child to war knowing that they may have to kill another human being?   I couldn’t and I know that there is a peaceful way… for now I will start with myself and the immediate impact I can have on my world. Looking within myself to ensure I have no hatred, unforgiveness, separation and anger. I heal myself as I am part of the world and as we all heal the ripple effect is miraculous. Fear is a lack of love so regardless of your belief system and current thoughts can you find it within you today to keep an open heart?

I repeat again, I truly don’t know THE answer but I know LOVE is the way… the details will unfold as we focus on PEACE.


We will all be affected by the collective grief and it is imperative that we step back into our power, stay grounded, stay strong on all levels and remember the eternal truth of our Souls. We are divine. We are LOVE.

You are your own creation


think create

For years I have been aware of ‘The Law of Attraction’ one of the operating laws of the Universe which is all part of this beautiful cosmic creation. I knew the theory in theory!

I read the books, I visualised, I recited, I wrote, I cut out pictures and I carefully glued them to pieces of cardboard and methodically placed it in the perfect place in my home with my intention to ‘make it happen’. The boards came and went, the words were said and the dreams were fading in places… both in actuality as the sunlight faded the images and in my mind and heart as the images of ‘wedding’ ‘baby’ ‘millions’ and more stared back at me daily. The sparkling energy that was within me when I created them fizzled out and the images began to bring up feelings of lack of what was missing.  I knew then I was missing the point, I was not really getting this in the way I should be. My expectations were too rigid, my fantasies were too floaty (up there in the ethers with no action being taken in many ways) it was time for a re-set, a look within and time to explore what really worked for me. Further insights and searching from around myself in the world and through quiet contemplation and reflection deep within myself. What was the golden ticket? It was not to be found in a chocolate bar although I am partial to a Fry’s Chocolate Cream (oh yes!) The elusive golden ticket to happiness was there and of course I had known it all along, I just hadn’t FELT it.  I had fleeting moments of feeling it, the temporary high that filled my cells with a love-burst like the suns rays then disappeared behind a cloud again the next day (or the day after). Love makes the world go round they say.. yes seems like there is a truth in that after all. I realised where I still have a nervousness around love… big squishy romantic heart-felt souls wrapping around each other kind of love. The love I seek but would run away from, The love that I saw in the movies and it made me expect too much from another ‘perfectly imperfect’ human being. The love train has arrived and so far it is just me on it. I am in First Class and I am at the station excitedly waiting to take off on a magical journey.  They haven’t told me where I am going yet; all I got was the memo saying “Just bring an open heart.  The rest will be revealed soon”

I sit here with my suitcase at my feet and I feel my heart glow with joy; my cells are celebrating. Let the journey begin
