A Dream Hidden in a Puzzle

A Drea​m Hidden in a Puzzle:

That’s Life

By Sara Jane

Your Soul dreams of experiencing so many different things, after all, all it knows is love.

Your Soul chooses experiences and your special gift for this life time and hides them in pieces scattered throughout your life, like a jigsaw puzzle.

Like a jigsaw puzzle, these many different pieces all slot together.

Every experience, every laugh, very tear is a piece of the puzzle.

No experience is too small or insignificant to be a part of the overall picture of your life.

We have no idea what our life holds for us, the intricate twists and turns that our Soul has dreamed up for us.

I found this quote at the time of writing this:

“What is a Dream? A Dream is a wish your Heart makes when you are asleep”

Our dreams are one of the ways our heart & soul communicate with us, guiding us to the next experience, helping us to find the next piece of the puzzle.

We have choices, we can step forward to have these experiences, find the pieces that help us to create the big picture of our life, helping us to complete this journey.

There will be periods of rest, of stillness, they are all pieces of the puzzle, of learning to be with ourselves; to love ourselves, taking care of ourselves.

Times of letting go, times of welcoming in the new, times of loss and times of renewal, times of the unexpected.

It is for each of us to choose whether we embrace the challenge of gathering the pieces, which can come in any order.

Knowing that we may have to store some until the pieces that connect them appear to help create the bigger picture.

Think about your life so far, have you had experiences, jobs, training that you found to be more relevant in later years.

I know a lot of my previous work life experiences are proving very helpful with my change in career, now that I feel I am following my path.

So was I always following my path, making sure I had the pieces of the puzzle I required to support me with what I now do, who I am.

Nothing is ever a waste, it all has a purpose, even if we don’t see it at the time.

Trust your Soul, its dream for this life and you will find all the pieces come together to complete the beautiful picture that is your life.

Become the Best YOU

Become the Best YOU

By Sara Jane

“Life challenges aren’t here to break you. Life’s challenges are here to mould, refine and make you into all you were intended to become”

~ Billy Cox

Firstly, to me, we are all born perfect. Perfect for the life and experiences we have chosen.

Our experiences as a child and our reactions to them, cause us to change, to behave in a manner, that is, in many cases alien to our true nature.

The nature we repress because of comments by others, judgements of others, actions of others.

We hide our true self behind people pleasing or anger and in the process loose ourselves.

It is possible to find your true self

“Trust the wait, Embrace the uncertainty, Enjoy the Beauty of Becoming. When nothing is certain, anything is possible”

~ Mandy Hale

No experience is wasted, every one of them is a gift in its own unique way.

So, embrace where you are right now, embrace the experiences you have had and know that they have served you in ways you may yet come to realise.

Everything is possible and you are possible.

Reconnecting to those aspects of yourself that you rejected, is possible.

“Be the Artist of Your Life, Not the Critic”

~ Bruce Van Horne

There is no judgement to be had of your life so far. You did the best you could with the knowledge you had.

With every new experience you learn more, you grow.

There is light and shade in everybody’s life, let those aspects of you that you have put into the shadows come back into the light and fill your life with colour.

“When you have to start compromising your values & morals… it is time to make changes”

~ Jaki Bent/If Everyone Cares

You are an amazing Being.

Be true to you, to your values, to your feelings, to your choices, to your morals.

Learn to say NO to anything that makes you feel uncomfortable, that doesn’t resonate with you.

“I am thankful for all of those who said no to me. It’s because of them I’m doing it myself”

~ Albert Einstein

No can be a greater gift than Yes can ever be.

It supports you in ways that Yes never can.

It helps you to say Yes to yourself, Yes I can do it.

Be yourself because an original is always worth more than a copy” ~ Suzy Kassem

It is time to let go of what does not serve you, of what stops you from being truly You.

It is time to reconnect with all of you, to Become again the perfect, unique Being you were born to be.

Treat Yourself to Exploring the World Around You

Treat Yourself to Exploring the World Around You

“Be Bold. Take Risks.

Nothing Can Substitute Experience” Paulo Coelho

Are you living your life or just going through the motions of day to day existing?

When was the last time you treated yourself to a new experience or explored a new area or path when out for a walk?

I get it, I really do, we have to earn the money to keep a roof over our head, food on the table and clothes on our back but life should be so much more than that.

When I look back over my life I spent far too many years just existing, feeling very unhappy and wondering what was the point.

Then I woke up, thanks to a broken jaw and all the stuff that went with it.

What does it matter what others think about you (and most of the time they aren’t), this is your life and you should live it and experience it in a way that makes you happy and fulfilled.

So, forget about a bucket list and create for yourself a Live Life List, a list of experiences you would like to have, places you would like to go, things you would like to see.

I have for a long time had thoughts about things I would like to do and then sometimes I hear or see something and think wow, would love that.

Over the last 20 years I have treated myself to or been treated to many different life experiences, here are some of them (and if I can do it, so can you).

  • Flown a helicopter
  • Abseiled off the Water Tower in Poole
  • Been a Trainee Wolf Handler with the Wolves at the UK Wolf Conservation Trust
  • Experienced a Zipwire ride in Bournemouth
  • Thrown a Pot (they came out really well)
  • Climbed the 3 Highest Peaks in the UK (Scarfel Pike in England, Snowdon in Wales & Ben Nevis in Scotland)
  • Went to Egypt (on my own) to Swim with Wild Dolphins
  • Went snorkelling in the Red Sea
  • Parasailing
  • On another trip to Egypt, I took myself off to Giza to see the Sphinx & Pyramids. We also Rode a Camel & went Star Gazing in the Dessert.
  • Ridden a Quad Bike
  • I was on the Weakest Link
  • Spent 2 weeks in Romania with the Carpathian Large Carnivore Project Tracking Wolves & Lynx (no killing involved)
  • Been a Messenger Speaker at 2 Messenger Summits in the USA
  • Paddled in the Pacific Ocean
  • Organised a 3-week Trip to America to spend time with the Nez Perce Indians learning about their culture and history and time in Yellowstone Park for a small group including 2 young adults with learning difficulties (amazing)
  • Retrained from working in Insurance to become a Complementary Health Therapist
  • Became a Shared Carer/Befriender for Adults with Learning Disabilities
  • Organised 3 Sponsored Walks for Adults with learning and/or physical difficulties (including 2 with Wolves)
  • Was a Volunteer Business Partner with a Young Enterprise Company
  • And this year for my 60th I am going to do a Wing Walk

“Life Has So Much To Offer,  You Don’t Need To Open Your Pockets, Just open Your Mind”

Shared by The Quote Today on Twitter

Every experience you allow yourself to have, brings you closer to you, to who you are.

Explore who you are, what makes you laugh, what brings fun and enjoyment, what scares you a little, what fulfils you, what helps you to feel alive.

Treat yourself or let someone else treat you and don’t wait for tomorrow, start that list today and start ticking them off. Add to it.

They don’t all have to be big things, expensive things, they could be as simple as paddling in a stream, rowing across a lake, a Boxing Day dip in the Sea (I’ve done that as well).

Start that course, book that massage, start that book you have always wanted to write, take riding lessons or try a flying lesson – feel the fear and do it anyway.

Just for fun, look back at your life and make a list of all the things you have done, the places you have been, both small and big things.

Let your memories of how you felt spur you on to more treats and exploration.

Life is a gift, our world is here for us to explore, open the package and treat yourself to the life you want.

“Everything Seemed Possible, When I Looked Through The Eyes Of A Child.

And Every Once In A While, I Remember, I Still Have The Chance To Be Wild”
