Ministry of Surprises

Ministry of Surprises

By Sara Jane

What do you consider to be a surprise?

Something that someone does for you, something in nature, a chance happenstance or all of these?

When was the last time you were surprised?

Well for me it was last week and nature was the bringer, or was she?

I became aware of an unusual plant in our front garden, I hadn’t planted it and neither had my partner, neither of us knew what it was.

Then earlier this week the full extent of the surprise was made clear to me. As I was posting to the Dragon Wisdom Twitter page, I saw a picture of the plant, a Dragon Flower, also known as Dragon Arum, Dragon Lily or Snake Lily: Dracunculus Vulgaris, this was the plant in our front garden.

Bearing in mind my connection with the Dragons, I love this gift from the Ministry of Surprises.

The more we are open to them, the more of them we become aware of.

When we moved into this house nearly 15 years ago, we did have a hedgehog in the garden, but haven’t seen any for years, then last Autumn, we saw another that hibernated in some straw we put out and in the Spring, we became aware of a pair. Such a lovely surprise.

Our garden is deliberately set up to be wildlife friendly, with bird feeders, plants, bundles of sticks (the Bees seem to love these to sleep in at night), 2 small ponds that the frogs and newts love plus the rest of the wildlife that drinks from them.

I wouldn’t have said much could surprise us in the garden any more but the ministry obviously has other ideas and we love it.

Do you sometimes surprise yourself?

I know I do, especially in my work, sometimes I find myself sharing something and wondering where it came from.

The biggest surprise for me over recent years was realising I speak what I call our Soul Language, what others call Light Language.

A couple of weeks ago my Mum, sisters and myself had a family video call and I mentioned it. My youngest sister already knew but Mum and middle sister were a little confused, so I was asked to share a little.

Mum’s reaction was lovely, she hadn’t known what to expect but she was surprised, it sounded like a language and I was so fluent in it, also her gentleman friend who was listening, commented that a member of his family also speaks it.

My middle sister has since asked me to share some more with her, feeling the energy without knowing what was said.

For me the Ministry of Surprises is aligned to our Soul and brings us surprises or gifts to help us feel supported, to guide us, to bring us joy, to move us forward, to let us know we are doing OK.

Find the Lilt in Your Life

Find the Lilt in Your Life

By Sara Jane

Lilt, what do you understand as being its meaning?

I’ve heard the term the “Irish Lilt” to do with the way they speak but I wasn’t sure of its actual meaning, so I looked it up In The Reader’s Digest Great Illustrated Dictionary:

A light happy tune or song – A cheerful or lively manner of speaking marked by a pleasantly varied cadence – A light springing manner of moving or walking – To say, sing or play in a cheerful rhythmic manner – To speak, sing or play with liveliness or rhythm (from the Middle English “lultent” to sound, sing)

On starting to write this, there are 2 things that jump out at me, first I am part Irish, my Grandfather was born here in England of Irish parents and secondly, I work with Sound Energy in the form of Toning, which for some can sound like singing at times, especially when I tone someone’s name.

The more I work with Sound Energy, the more I see the difference it makes to people’s lives.

I watch them relax, their shoulders drop and there is a glow about their face and a spring in their step that wasn’t there before.

Think about your favourite music, possibly different depending on your mood or how you wish to feel.

Energetic to do the housework to, something you can sing along with, relaxing to help you unwind, fun if you feel like dancing round the house or garden.

Have you found the song that is in you, that is your Lilt?

I have a suggestion for you that may help.

I talk above about Toning someone’s name, have you ever experienced it?

Have you tried it for yourself, I mean saying or toning/singing your own name, it is very powerful and empowering.

If you are feeling uncertain, I suggest starting by saying your name, repeating it over and over. Say it with Love, Caring, Fun, Laughter, Joy, Happiness, allow the tone of your voice to change, smile and let go of self-consciousness.

Become comfortable with saying your name and slowly allow a lilt in, a little like a spring in your step, letting it build until you are toning/singing your name.

Use your first name and I suggest if you have changed your name you also bring in that name as well.

Very briefly the reason I suggest this is because although I was Christened Sara Jane, I was always Jane as a young child and I changed it to Sara.

When I do this for myself and I do, I always do a mix of Sara, Jane, Sara Jane, Jane Sara, honouring the whole of me, me of every age.

For me my song, my lilt is my name, it has taken time but I feel my life has been, is being, enriched by it.

I hope you will try this, give it time and find your Lilt, the song that will light up your life.

The Grass is Always Greener

The Grass is Always Greener ~ Only when it is Watered

By Sara Jane

There is always so much going on in our lives, the everyday, the unexpected, the planned etc

Think about your life, which aspects are you giving your attention to?

Which bits are you putting most of your energy in to?

Are you concentrating on the things that fulfil you or that drain you?

Do you look at others and wish your life was more like theirs?

Do you look behind the screens and know how things really are for them?

Over 20 years ago, I knew my life wasn’t what I wanted, I felt like a slave in my own home, I felt ignored, undervalued, invisible.

The only person who could change that for me, was me – so I did, I bought my marriage to an end and moved out.

I know that makes it sound very simple and in some respects it was but it didn’t just happen, I had to make it happen, I had to take control of my own life and stop handing that control to others.

Granted there were no children involved, just 4 cats.

When I took control and got active in my own life, my life improved, this is what is meant by watering the grass.

It is up to us to be proactive in our own lives.

Do you have a garden with a lawn? If you don’t cut it, it gets out of hand.

The same with your life, if you don’t take control, things tend to get out of hand.

Is it a matter of finding the strength to do what is necessary, or just being so fed up with the situation, you’ve had enough and can’t take any more?

What is going through my mind at this point is, if we find the strength to do something and then do some thinking through, we then have a plan.

Yes, we could just go at things like a “Bull in a china shop” but a little thought, with a plan can make things a little easier.

Also, it is about remembering that there are usually others affected when we choose to make changes and we have no idea how they will react, the calmer we can stay the better.

I am not saying walk out of your marriage or leave you job, catch things before they go too far and you can find the grass in your own garden becomes so much greener, without moving to the other side.

Animals ~ All Natures Creatures

Animals ~ All Natures Creatures

By Sara Jane

A ~ All

N ~ Nature

I ~ Insects

M ~ Mammals

A ~ Aquatic Life

L ~ Loved

S ~ Special

Animals, Nature, all Creatures, this is a topic very close to my heart.

I have always loved animals and for many years as a child and adult had pets.

I was also blessed for a short while to be a Trainee Handler at the UK Wolf Conservation Trust here in the UK – such amazing creatures.

Have you heard of Trophic Cascades? Have you seen either of these short videos?

“How Wolves Change Rivers” https://youtu.be/ysa5OBhXz-Q

“How Whales Change Climate” https://youtu.be/M18HxXve3CM

My love of animals goes back to my early childhood, my early life experiences left me very insecure around people but not with the family dog and cat, they where my friends, I felt safe and loved with them.

Don’t get me wrong I was loved by my family and well cared for but circumstances as a very young child had really affected me, all part of my healing journey but that is another story.

The more I learn about animals, the more I interact with them and spend time in Nature, the more I realise just how important all creatures are to a balanced echo system and the sustainability of our own lives.

In February 2000, I was lucky enough to be a part of a group that went out to Romania to track Wolves and Lynx in the Carpathian Mountain, through the Scientific Exploration Society in conjunction with the Carpathian Large Carnivore Project run by Christoph Promberger.

Because the only person for years that had been allowed to hunt the Wolves and Lynx was the President of the country, they had been relatively protected and the forests had been kept healthy because the Wolves kept the Deer in check.

If you watch the video above which is the Wolves in Yellowstone Park, you will hear that their re-introduction has meant the trees on the river banks are growing again because the Deer are no longer destroying them.

From the smallest creature to the largest, they all have a place, each needs to eat and many are food. Others support plant life and the loss of one creature anywhere in the system can cause havoc for all of them.

Some no longer have a predator to keep their numbers in check and others can be decimated because of that lack of food chain control.

This Planet, all her creatures are on loan to us from our children, we are meant to be the caretakers – How good a job do you think we are doing?

Animals in the pictures below, all taken by me – Deer at Arne, Dorset – Ocelot at a Leopard project in the UK - Dartmoor Ponies - Butterfly in my garden - Dolphins off the coast of Egypt in an area called Dolphin House - Wolves taken at the UK Wolf Conservation Trust – Puma at the same place as the Ocelot – Robin in my garden – Squirrel at Arne – Barn Owl at an Owl Sanctuary near to where I live – Bumble Bee in my Garden.

Love the Elixir of Life

Love the Elixir of Life

By Sara Jane

What is an Elixir?

It is a medicinal potion or aromatic preparation thought to have generalised curative or restorative properties.

The word elixir was not used until the 7th century A.D. and derives from the Arabic name for miracle substance, “al iksir”.

The main ingredient of an elixir is water (mineral water or spring water preferably).

For those of you aware of Dr. Masaru Emoto, you will know that he studied the effects of human consciousness on the molecular structure of water.

Very simply put, water can hold the energy of its surroundings and what is put into it, thus Crystal Elixirs made by putting a crystal in or near water (some crystals are toxic and others friable so should never be put directly into the water).

Also, Flower essences and you can put different energies such as a Homoeopathic Remedy into water by creating a circle on a clean piece of paper, writing the name of the remedy & strength in the circle and then placing the glass of water over it.

This also works by using words such as Love, Healing, Energy and more (keep the words positive).

How you are feeling can also affect the water you drink, as you hold the glass or bottle in your hand.

On average our body is 60% water, with our skin being 64%, our muscles & kidneys 79% and our brain & heart 73%.

Think about that for a minute, if water is that susceptible to the energy in and around it, what affects do our thoughts and feelings have on our body.

What do you think about, what energies are flowing around your body?

Love is the greatest healer, the more love you feel for yourself, the more the Elixir of Love flows around your body, helping to heal and restore it.

The picture was taken by my mother at St. Nectans Glen in Cornwall, Orbs seem to be attracted to water, maybe that is also why they are attracted to people – food for thought.

A Scintilla of Hope

A Scintilla of Hope

By Sara Jane

Meaning ~ Scintilla - A Minute amount, a tiny trace or spark of a specified quality or feeling. E.g. "a scintilla of doubt"

I have to admit to having to look up the meaning of this word, I have certainly heard of scintillation and scintillating but never scintilla.

I am someone who has been on a “Bad News” diet for years, I don’t watch or listen to the news – unless I’m in a car and it comes on while I am listening to the radio – and I don’t read newspapers.

But I always seem to know what is happening, especially with all the fires last year in the USA & Brazil and now in Australia, the Eruption in New Zealand and now the Earthquakes in Puerto Rico.

Droughts and floods, soring temperatures and ice caps melting. Animals on the verge of extinction. Our Oceans poisoned with plastic, oil spills and other pollutants.

That is just the tip of the iceberg but there is still a scintilla of hope, a tiny glimmer.

A little flame that won’t die, that keeps many of us holding on and doing our bit to help preserve and protect animals and wildlife habitat.

Yes, I am one of them and for the past few years a friend has adopted an animal for me through WWF as a Christmas present, I have quite a collection and will keep adding to it. I hope you like the picture of them I have shared.

I love our beautiful Planet, Gaia, Mother Earth, Pachamama and I hold hope in my heart, in my mind, my thoughts that we are in a time of great change.

She is alive, she breathes, she needs to move and stretch from time to time.

She loves us and feeds us.

All we have to do is look around, see the stories of the people who are helping save the Koalas, Kangaroos and more from the fires.

The rescues of baby Elephants stuck in holes, animals caught in traps or in raging waters. The beautiful souls who give water to thirsty animals.

The Countries that are planting millions of trees, banning the use of animals in circuses, working to clean water, soil and air.

All those amazing inventors who are making shoes from used coffee beans, leather from pineapple and other leaves, finding uses for plastics, including road surfaces.

Hold on to that scintilla of Hope for us all and for our beautiful Mother Earth, we can all come through this together.

Bravery & Compassion Share the Same Energy

Bravery & Compassion Share the Same Energy

By Sara Jane

What was your first thought on reading the title of this article?

What is that Energy?

For me it is simple, it is the Energy of Love. The Universal Healing Energy, the powerhouse that underpins nearly everything we do and is who we are.

Compassion has its roots in Love.

Whether we are showing compassion for animals, nature, other people or ourselves – don’t forget yourself, its root is in the love that resides in all of us.

Being compassionate is connecting to the core of who we are.

Compassion also has a “tough” side, when we love and care for others sometimes we have to say No and that is an aspect of Bravery.

Sometimes we have to be brave enough to do the hard stuff, for ourselves and others.

We all have to make our own mistakes, to live our own lives.

Be brave enough to take the first step, to have the experiences and compassionate enough to allow our loved ones to do the same and be there for them when things don’t go so well.

Several years ago, a friend of mine was in an abusive relationship, we talked and she knew she needed to end it but allowed him back.

It happened again and she felt able to come back to me and said “I know you aren’t going to say I told you so”.

Gratefully she ended it, she learnt compassion for herself and had the bravery to do what was necessary, both born of love.

There are many times a day we are brave and compassionate, they may only be in little things and they may be so natural to us that we don’t even consider them but they are there.

Be proud of yourself for the brave and compassionate person that you are.

Love, Peace & Light

Being a Channel for Sound Energy and More

Being a Channel for Sound Energy and More

By Sara Jane

Are you a channel?

Would you like to be a channel?

Could you already be on your journey of being a channel without realising it?

This is my story, the story of how I became/discovered I am a channel.

In 2002 I was looking for something that I could do to help and support me; I wasn’t looking for others to help heal me, somehow, I understood that I was the only one that could do that.

I heard about Reiki, that the first person you treat when you learn, is yourself – that was what I was looking for.

During the training – Level I – my Master taught us how to open the channel to the Ki energy and offer it to ourselves and others.

I understand now that that was the first day I became an active and an aware channel.

Elaine, my Reiki Master, also introduced me to Sound Energy in the form of Toning (the use of the voice but not singing), I fell in love with it, I found it so powerful.

Although it hadn’t been my intention (the Universe had other ideas), I went on to do my Reiki II, Masters and learnt to teacher, with every step increasing my ability to channel.

The Sound Energy also grew within me and one evening when I shared it, a very wise lady of my acquaintance, Willow a Shaman, said that the Sounds I shared were channelled, they weren’t actually me.

This made so much sense, it explained why the sounds had been likened to Singing Bowls, how the pitches could have such a range from very low to very high, also why the energies could feel so different.

In late 2009 I was trying to research why Dragons and many other Mythical Beings may connect with us in Meditation or thought.

After all, if particular Angels, Animals and others come to you, you can look up what that may mean – a message.

Nothing, I couldn’t find anything anywhere and I was thinking about it one day whilst I was driving and suddenly the words were in my head “You’re doing it”

I am not one of these people who sees things, hears things, I just get a sense of knowing and very occasionally words pop into my head very clearly and concise.

Yes, I went through the why me? And always follow it very quickly with Why not me?

I had bought a couple of books about Mythical Beings whilst doing my previous research, so I sat with pen and paper and would read about one of these friends.

Usually a single word in their “description/information” would spark a message that I would then write down.

57 Mythical Beings shared through me, including the Dragons who shared that we all have a Guardian Dragon and the Werewolf, who told me we have all been given our own Guardian Wolf and we are one with our wolf.

All the Mythical Beings are friends, in their own unique way and I was asked not to share their myths and legends, as so many of them had been distorted to create fear. I continue to honour this and have connect with more since.

If you read my column, you will be aware that I also channel from the Dragons that guard over Earth’s crystals and in 2017 I realised I am working with the Sound Dragons.

Going back to the Sound Energy, once this started to develop, I became aware that I am mainly working with Gaia Mother Earth, Mother Mary, St. Germain & Archangel Uriel, which makes so much sense to me because I help people to re-connect with their inner child, especially the trauma and pain aspects.

Then in 2018 I discovered I channel in what I believe is our Soul Language.

As with the Toning, I just open my mouth and the words flow, I have no idea what they mean but I know from those who have experienced it, that they “feel” the message, it is understood by their Heart & Soul, our minds can’t translate it and therefore cannot misinterpret the message.

I hope that sharing my story, my journey of trust, the gifts, the wisdom, the sounds that come through me, helps and inspires you on your journey.

Love, Peace & Light Sweet Soul

Fun in the Cold

​Fun in the Cold

By Sara Jane

I am sure most of us are aware of the saying “Fun in the Sun”.

Just because the weather is getting colder here in the Northern hemisphere doesn’t mean the fun has to stop.

This article isn’t about the words that are written, it’s more about the memories it awakens and encouraging you and your family to make more.

Cast your mind back and connect with your inner child, think of all the fun things you used to get up to.

Kicking and crunching through the fallen leaves, jumping in muddy puddles, snowball fights, making snowmen and snow angels.

What else do you remember doing, fun and laughter with siblings and/or friends?

Bonfire night, all gathered around a fire, fireworks going off then back to someone’s home for hot chocolate, hot potatoes, grilled sausages and more.

Gathered around a fire, toasting crumpets, mallows and toast, dripping butter everywhere.

Cold, crisp mornings, watching your breath as you walk to school or work.

Clear, cold starry winter nights, wrapped in hats, mittens and scarves.

Sat in front of a roaring log fire, playing games, or curled up in bed under a lovely warm duvet.

Pleasure can be found in so many things when we open our minds and let memories flood in.

Chill winds blow

Stormy skies

Shorter days

Longer nights

As Winter takes its hold

Trees adorned in golds, rusts and reds

Teaching us the glory of letting go

As their leaves fall to the ground

Winter slumber

Birds fly South

Squirrels gathering nuts

Hedgehogs, Bees and more hibernate

A time of rest and re-charging

Frost covering the rooves and ground in white

Steaming as it melts in the morning sun

Ice forms on birdbaths

Hungry birds squabble to feed on the feeders

Snow falls blanketing the world in white

Children laugh and play

Tin trays are used as toboggans

Snowball fights and making snowmen

Cold hands and feet

Warmed by an open fire

Rosy cheeks from cold fresh air

Childhood memories

When was the last time you made memories?

When was the last time you shared your childhood memories with your family?

This is the perfect time of year with the colder shorter evenings to sit with your family and share, plus make more.

Moon Shine Your Light on Me

Moon Shine Your Light on Me

By Sara Jane

As the Sun sets in the West

Darkness falls over the land

A silver slither of light appears in the East

The New Moon ascends over the horizon

The dark of night is broken

The moon and the stars bring light to the Heavens

The nocturnal animals below, are awoken

The Moon starts her monthly dance across the sky

With each moon rise her crescent grows

Her light becomes stronger

The first quarter lights the sky

Growing to the glory of the full moon

Mesmerising paths of light

Across seas and lakes

Moon shadows on the Earth

Moonbows in the rain

A beautiful aura surrounds her

Visible as clouds pass by

Feel her pull

Hear her whispering to you

The dance continues as she begins to wain

The tides on Earth being affected by her energy

Now for the second quarter, still shinning bright

Rising later, still visible after sun rise

Moon shine your light on me

Teach me to rise and grow

To know my full glory

To rest and rise again

You may have seen poems from me in the past. I feel that I am guided to write and sometimes that comes in the form of poetry, granted not rhyming poetry.

I love to look out at the moon each night and also to see the stars, watching the monthly cycles and especially the colours at moonrise.

I hope you enjoy
