The Voices In My Head
Bloom Where you are Planted
It was February in NZ, the third trimester of summer.
Vibrant green grass flanked by lush trees that have benefited from good rain and warm sunshine surround our home, their roots buried in the warm earth. Birds sing incessantly to express their delight at the abundance of a bountiful summer.
Other than the native trees and shrubs, our garden consists of a few lettuces, some herbs, roses, hydrangeas, fruit trees, pots of flowering plants and most unexpectedly eight self-sown tomato plants.
Their appearance was a wonderful surprise to us, as we were discussing making a trip to the garden centre to purchase our supply for the season. Bloom where we are planted...read more
I dreamed of a time
I learned very early on what it was like to live in a powerless situation but I decided that I was not going to live a powerless life.
Living a courageous life is not just about going to war or doing dangerous deeds rather it is having the courage to stand up for something that needs to be changed. It is to me about having the passion and vision to imagine a time when acts and beliefs that cause harm to ourselves and others will be brought to the light and will no more hold us prisoner to those who perpetrate them. To live a meaningful life requires courage and belief... read more
When there Is no way back
I always know when something in my life has come to an end, because I find myself on the outside of a door that has no handle on it.... in other words there is No Way Back.
What do I do now, plays in my head. To add to the angst, I find myself standing on a ledge with mist around me. Not just a little bit of mist but thick mist and you don't step in any direction when you can't see your hand in front of your face.
How do I find my way from this place?...read more
Daily deposits of gratitude
Why do we wait until something has happened to express GRATITUDE for it? Instead of waiting until after something has occurred that brings about feelings of GRATITUDE try PAYING IT FORWARD. Give thanks every day for this life you have chosen to live and for those who have agreed to share it with you. Your GRATITUDE must include those who you feel have hurt you in some way for they are your greatest teachers. I can hear your disgust at the thought of being GRATEFUL to such a person but GRATITUDE doesn't discriminate between good or bad - you do. ...read more
To thine own self be true
Belief in one’s self is paramount to manifesting what one desires. Without belief, one has nothing but doubt and fear.
Trust that you are surrounded continuously by those in spirit who want nothing more than to see you succeed and prosper on every level.
Just as an audience wants the performer to deliver an enthralling performance that allows them to feel exhilarated and enriched by their experience. They don’t want to cringe and crawl from the theatre feeling embarrassed and left wanting.
Deliver your finest work at all times.
Magic is what transforms one from average to truly splendid.
Connect to your true self - your divinity - and watch the transformation...read more
just be more of yourself
My children would often hear me tell them, "if you want to see who you really are then have a look at your friends." I wanted them to learn that they will attract to themselves that which they are being. Whilst sharing this pearl of wisdom with them, I was also learning to apply it to myself. I can truly say that it served both me and my children well... read more
Well John cleese - i really am welsh and proud of it!
After 55 years of telling people that I am not Welsh, in reply to their query about the origins of my name - Olwynne, I can now say, with great pride - Yes! I am Welsh.
So how did this come about and how did I not know this important piece of information for 55 years? All I can say to that is life is a journey of unfolding mysteries.
Like all good journeys there are many paths that were travelled to reach this point, with twists and turns along the way.
Let me explain....read more
Recipe for life
Life is like a recipe book. It is full of experiences waiting to happen. Ideas burgeoning to come to life. Some will be pleasing to the palate and others will leave a sour taste in the mouth. Unless we are prepared to cease resorting to the same old tried and tested dishes and broaden our taste buds, we will continue to eat the same fare day after day...read more
The karma effect
How many times have you said if I only knew then what I know now? I would do things differently.
Reincarnation and Karma give us the opportunity to experience multiple lifetimes, electing the life path that offers us our greatest learning experience, reincarnation being a fundamental element in our spiritual tree of life and Karma is a major supporting branch of the divine gift, of being given a second chance. Hopefully you will be given it in your present incarnation and if not you will certainly have another go at it in your next.
How does this happen?...read more
