Time to Forget

Time to Forget

By Sara Jane

Give yourself time to forget

To just live in the Now

Allow yourself time to stop

To just be still


Listen to the sounds of silence

The sound of your own Heart beating

The sounds of Nature

Hear the music that surrounds you


Let yourself Feel

Feel the warmth of the sun

The caress of the breeze

The kiss of the rain


Open your Eyes

See the beauty and colour that surrounds you

The beautiful palette of Nature

From the sky to the earth and everything in between


Time to be with you

The whole of you

The you of all ages

The you with no worries or cares.


Time to break down the barriers you have hidden behind

Time to forget who others have told you, you are

Time to get to know you

To re-connect with yourself


Let yourself meet you

Get to know you

Learn to love you

To trust and respect you


You are a beautiful being

An amazing creation

A gift to the world

Be true to you


Give yourself permission to have me-time

Time to explore who you are

Time for fun and laughter

Time to leave the everyday behind for a while


Create a new reality for yourself

A reality of love & peace

Of trust and respect

Of fun and laughter


A reality in which you let go of judgement

You find the positive in all situations

You honour yourself and your journey

You honour others and their journey


Paths may cross

Some will walk with you for a while

Others may, for a lifetime

And others still, a passing smile or nod


Let yourself live your life

Follow your own path

Experience your own journey

This roller-coaster we call life


Give yourself permission to forget what has served its purpose

Remembering the lessons and gifts that each brings you

You are Special

Believe it

Humour ~ The Springboard to Your Soul

Humour ~ The Springboard to Your Soul

By Sara Jane

Humour, laughter, fun, joy, happiness – How do you feel when you experience these?

Do you feel connected?

Sadness, sorrow, anger, hurt, pain, annoyance, stress – How do you feel when you experience these?

How connected do you feel to anything when you experience these?

A sense of humour, fun and laughter are meant to be the largest part of what we experience here.

Even in times of bereavement, when you look back at things that happened with that person, you find fun and laughter, and it helps you to feel more connected to them.

When you find the joy, the happiness in the people you are with, the things you do, the places you go, when things feel “good”, when you feel yourself smiling and laughing, you are connecting with it and with your Soul.

Love and laughter live in harmony together, they are connected, they bring light into your life.

Your Soul, your true essence is Love and your Soul, your Spirit has a sense of humour.

Your Angels, guides and guardians all have a sense of humour, life has a sense of humour.

Connecting with that humour brings us closer to our true self, it helps us deepen our connection with our Soul. It supports us through the tough times and helps bring us back to ourselves.

I suggest giving yourself time to think about the questions I asked at the beginning. Allowing yourself to feel the energies that each brings up for you.

We all have choices, we can choose our mood – what are you choosing today?

Are you experiencing life the way you would really like to?

If not, you can choose to change things, just by adding some humour into your life and connecting more deeply with your Soul.

Allow yourself to reconnect with your child within, to the days and times of fun, freedom and frolics and bring these energies back into your day today living.

“He who lives in harmony with himself, lives in harmony with the world”

“Mind is not a dustbin to keep anger, hatred & jealousy. But it is the treasure box to keep Love, Happiness and sweet memories” ~ Buddha Quotes

Life: A Risky Business

Life: A Risky Business

By Sara Jane

Risk: the possibility of suffering harm or loss; danger

What risks are you taking on a daily basis?

Or do you prefer to live your life without taking any?

Well here is some food for thought for you to consider “Doing nothing can be more risky than going something”.

Being afraid to go out “just in case …..” holds its own risks.

  • First it can affect your health – no fresh air and sunshine is bad for you; this also usually means a lack of exercise. They are all essential for good health.
  • If you only do the minimum such as go to work and come home again to minimise risk – Do you drive a car? You are getting into a lethal weapon. If you catch a bus, you are a passenger in an even bigger lethal weapon. If you walk are you really any safer?

So bearing in mind that every day you take risks, why not make them risks worth taking?

Step out of your comfort zone, start to live your life and you will discover that “risking” nothing was a bigger risk than taking the plunge.

Life is for living, for experiencing; free yourself from fear.

Fear is: False Evidence Appearing Real

Risk is: Rejoicing In Scary Kicks

Yes you should get a kick out of life; fun and laughter, embracing change.

Ignore the worry mongers, the “what ifs”, the “what about” and all the other excuses you find not to do something.

Listen to your heart, listen to your feelings, listen to your intuition, listen to your gut instincts.

Quiet your mind, feel the fear and do it anyway.

In April I was treated to the experience of the Zip Wire in Bournemouth where I live.

Right up to the point of stepping off the platform I was fine, even relaxed and confident.

Suddenly all my nerves jangled, what was I doing; I had to step off the platform and rely on the ropes to hold me.

Yes I felt the fear, but I had been looking forward to doing it; I wasn’t really afraid, for goodness sake I had abseiled off the Water Tower in Poole.

So I took a deep breath and stepped off, it was great and I am so pleased I did it.

Think about your life, think about the mad and crazy things you have done.

Remember the feelings, the exhilaration, the laughter, the joy, the fun.

With every risk you take, with every new experience you grow and you become more of the person you are meant to be.

If you are encouraged to do something that feels wrong to you, have the courage to risk saying NO.

Yes “risk” comes in many forms but better to risk a faulty misjudgment of you, than to risk the feelings and consequences of doing what you know to be “wrong”.

Always Be True to YOU

The Journey

Possibility Banner

By Sara Jane

Your life is a journey from the day you are conceived into the physical world to the day you leave and return to the Spirit world.

Yes you are Spirit having a physical experience and all the possibilities that that brings with it.

Life is a precious gift, a gift of endless possibilities and experiences.

Every step you take opens you to new opportunities.

Your journey isn’t about following the straight and narrow path; it is about twists and turns, diversions and forks in the road; choices.

All roads and paths have junctions and forks in them, sometimes there are even detours. Life is the same.

It is your journey, the roads and paths you walk should be your choice. By all means listen to others but choose from how each choice makes you feel.

There will be times when you feel like you are climbing a never ending mountain, stop occasionally and enjoy the view there are always plus points.

If you ever feel you have picked the wrong turn or path, see it as a detour.

Yes there will be detours but consider these as bringing you gifts, new possibilities and wisdom that you wouldn’t have had without them ~ there is always a reason.

There will be times when you feel you have hit rock bottom; the advantage here is that you can’t fall any further, pick yourself up, brush yourself off and look for the path out, the path that offers the possibilities to use the wisdom you have gained from your experiences.

You can never take a wrong path and there is no such thing as a backward step, not in the way you interpret the meaning.

Even if you feel you have gone in the wrong direction and need to backtrack, remember the experiences you have had have changed you, you have grown.

Think about a meandering river, its path twists and turns; sometimes it can form a horseshoe shape, appearing to come back on its self.

Just like a motorway, if you find yourself going in the wrong direction, you turn round but you are not travelling the same road and you are seeing things from a different perspective.

Feel free to change your mind, feel free to open yourself to new opportunities, the possibilities are endless and you will never be given more than you can handle.

Live, your life, enjoy the ups and downs, twists and turns of your journey and know that what may feel like U-turns are still a step forward.

Everything happens for a reason, even if you don’t always get to find out what that reason is.

Charity

Charity from the Latin “caritas” 

meaning Love, Regard

The definition of “charity” as per the “Readers Digest Great Illustrated Dictionary” is

“1. The provision of help or relief to the poor 2. An institution, organisation or fund established to help the needy or carry out other useful work 3. Something that is given up to help the needy; alms 4. An act or feeling of benevolence, goodwill or affection 5. Indulgence or forbearance in judging others; leniency”.

What does charity mean to you? Or more importantly what should it mean to you?

So many people’s reaction is “I don’t want charity”. What they are really looking for is to be able to help them self, to be able to stand on their own 2 feet and provide for them self and their family.

At the end of the day isn’t that what we all wish for?

The saying goes “give a man a fish and he eats for a day, give him a fishing rod and he eats for the rest of his life”.

The word “charity” I feel has a different meaning today than from the past.

By helping and supporting people to help and support them self, we treat them with Love & Respect; we help them to get back on their feet and to be able to support themselves.

We give them back control for their life, releasing them from reliance on anyone else.

Charity should always “begin at home”, with yourself. The charity of loving yourself enough to be true to you; of not judging yourself or allowing others judgements of you to affect you.

Let go of judgement of self and others, feel free to give of self to self.

Always give with Love, Respect and an Honouring of who the individual is.

Your Life is Like a Mosaic

Your Life is Like a Mosaic

By Sara Jane

Your Life is Like a Mosaic Banner

What is a Mosaic?

Can you picture one?

Lots of different coloured pieces of glass or tile; little pieces that are all stuck together to create a picture.

As a single piece they appear to be nothing but a broken piece of tile or glass but when they are put together, they create something beautiful.

Our lives can be a lot like a mosaic; it is only when you start connecting all the pieces together that you start to get a complete picture. YOU

You are not any single piece of the mosaic; you are the sum of all the pieces of your life.

Everything that has happened, everything you have felt, everything you have done, has created the mosaic that is your life to date.

Without every single piece your mosaic would be incomplete and you wouldn’t be the perfect and unique Being that you are.

Love every aspect of your life, every little piece fits perfectly in place to create the beauty that is you.

The true beauty and perfection of a mosaic can only been seen from a distance.

View your life as a whole, where you are now, rather than looking at each piece separately.

Hope

Hope

HOPE ~ pic

Every night as you go to sleep you hold HOPE in your heart that you wake up and for the possibilities of the new day.

Hope is what keeps so many going. Act on that Hope, what can you do to make your Hopes a reality?

Don’t sit back and wait for others, take control; turn your Hope into reality via your action.

You can do it when you let go of others and your own limiting beliefs. You are limitless, use your Hope to tap into your limitlessness and make your life all that you Hope it will be and more.
