Birth And Rebirth

Just when you think that the world is such a horrible place and there is no way you could ever be up and positive again, something beautiful happens.

This past week my first grandchild was born. The joy that this wonderful little boy has brought to my life is amazing. Where before I was down and almost ready to give up, hence no blog post last week 😦 , now I am more uplifted and feel joy every time I look at a photo of him.

He unfortunately lives a two hour plane flight away from me, so I have yet to see him face to face and hold him. So for now until I can afford to go up and see him I have to make do with photos and skype sessions.

The energy that this child has raised within my life is so special. I am amazed at how precious and beautiful he is and how my son and daughter in law have made this wonderful creature. You tend to forget what it is like when your own children are grown. so seeing the peaceful little face while he sleeps brings back so many memories of when my own boys were born.

I am sitting here with emotional tears of joy falling down my face as I write. I was reminded the other day by one of my other sons, that now I am a Grandmother I am officially old. I have no problems with being old if if means I am to welcome more perfect beings like this one into my world.

This child represents a new beginning for me. the birth of something wonderful and fulfilling and the start of the second half of my life. As I add Grandmother to the list of who and what I am, it makes me sit and think more carefully about the life I have and the life I wish to live. How can I make sure that I am a special part of his life? How can i work it that I spend quality time with him? All these thoughts are flooding my mind and as I desperately search for the answers I need, I remember to relax and allow spirit and the universe to arrange things in their own natural way.

I am blessed to have such a special event occur in my life. It has taken many years before my little family was ready to grow and now was the perfect time for it to happen.

Always remember that when you feeling the lowest you think you could possibly go, that there will be something around you to raise you up again. Never, no matter how hard it is, allow the darkness to keep you from seeing the joy that can unfold. For it is always there and all it takes is for you to suspend the darkness for one instant and allow yourself to see another point of view.

Eclipsing The Darkness

So it seems the latest eclipse has shifted the energy somewhat. I have felt over the last few days a movement of sorts. A lightening up of my mood and what feels like a shift in the road I have been traveling on for the last few years.

I had read earlier last week that the eclipse was the final hurdle to leaving 2016 behind, and for me it seems to be true. I have felt the strangeness, almost, of this new energy and it has an underlying sense of happiness and joy within it. I feel much more inclined to smile than scowl and things have not upset me as much as they have over the last two years.

It is like a gate or a door has opened and the future is shining brightly beyond. All it takes is a simple step to move forward into this newness and accept the new path that is opening before me. This new vibration of lightness is so very strange to me. After living through the darkness of the preceding couple of years, it makes me feel a bit wary. Is it going to last? Is it real what I am feeling? Will I be disappointed again?

It is almost like I am needing proof before I venture beyond the door. The fear of being swept back into the darkness is outweighing the joy that this energy is emitting. While I want to trust that this truly is a new beginning, past experience has me hesitating on the brink.

I am being offered what I have waited for. The opportunities are now before me and yet there is a sense of trepidation. If I run through the open door and fall flat on my face, will I retreat so far back into the darkness that I may never again find the light? What I must and will do, is take that first step and keep going. I cannot and will not allow this opportunity to pass me by. This is the chance for a whole new beginning, a chance to start again on a new path, with new people in a new direction.

Do you feel it? Do you understand what we are being offered here? We must at this time embrace the light that has speared through the darkness. To show us the way out of the depths of unhappiness and misery that we have, honestly, drawn to ourselves out of fear. We know we manifest our reality, we know that what we ask for, good or bad, arrives. Yet we still hesitate.

As the final door closes on the last cycle of nine years, it is time for us to emerge, ready, willing and able to do what we need to do in order to progress. Starting with embracing the feeling of happiness that now permeates the air around us. I feel it, more and more every day. It is lighter, it is happier and it is so very welcomed.

With the lighter energy we tend to focus more upon the good things in our lives, rather than the bad. In turn we draw to ourselves the better things in life. More of what we want instead of what we don’t want. I for one, have focused far too often on what was wrong in my life, rather than feeling gratitude for what I did have in my life. This new vibration has shown me that there is a better way and that I am quite capable of finding it.

For now I will bask in the feelings of happiness and joy, that I had almost forgotten over the last cycle. Memories of good times will now outweigh the memories of the bad times. This is a moment of understanding that has been trying to pierce my mind for so long now, and finally I have recognised it. I sit here, laughing to myself at how good I actually feel, and wonder how I could have allowed the darkness and density of fear take over my life for so long.

I now remember that I am strong, I remember that I am capable. I remember that life is meant to be fun, and I remember that life is what I make it. The circumstances around me are my doing and it is up to me to ensure that my reactions and responses to those circumstances are positive and uplifting.

Do you remember the light? Do you remember how good we had it? Do you remember why we let it all slip away?

Will you join me in rediscovering the joy of life?

The Art Of Choosing.

When I look back over my life and the choices I have made, I wonder what on earth I was thinking at the time. Some have been great choices, some have been bad choices and some have been in the “what the hell, why not” category. Most have led me to where I am now, and although I sometimes complain about things, I do know that I am exactly where I am meant to be.

The lessons I have learned from the choices I have made have been huge. I am independent, mostly, and can tackle most things without worrying if they will turn out or not. But, there are times where I have made choices, and they were good choices, and I didn’t follow through with it all.

Why do we get ourselves to a point where we know what we want, how we want it and sometimes even how to get it and then just let it all slip away? Is it the thrill of the wanting, but the actual getting is not important? Is it fear of the actual getting? Why would we be scared of getting what we hope and dream for?

My hopes and dreams are all written down in lists. Multiple lists. I have lists for everything. They all sit neatly in a pile of exercise books and collect dust. I write them down and get all excited about the possibilities, then put the book away and promptly forget all about it.

I choose to choose but do not choose to reach. I choose to choose but do not choose to try. I choose for the sake of choosing. Then I choose not to proceed. My art of choosing needs serious updating.

So how to get from the choosing to the reaching and succeeding. Do I have to force myself to watch every moment to make sure I am not forgetting my chosen choice? That will only make the choice something that I will end up despising at most or a chore at the least.

For me, at this time in my life, focus is going to be very important. I have always flitted from one thing to another. Always chasing the elusive something that will make everything perfect, and in doing that missing all the important small stuff that goes on around me.

So now I am going to throw out the lists, all of them. They only serve to remind me of the failures and the lost opportunities that I have let slip through my fingers. Then I am going to choose.

Happiness, joy, love and abundance.

That is the only choice I really need to make. When I succeed at allowing these into my life, then anything else will follow naturally. No pushing, no fighting, no chores and no lists required. It’s all there, all I have to do is accept it all. Allow them to enter my life and ask them to stay. Simple.

Life does not need to be a big dramatic series of events. It merely needs to be allowed to flow. It needs to be. When you wake in the morning let your first words to yourself be words of encouragement, words of happiness and words of expectation of all that you can be.

What will you choose today?

Margaret ❤
