Don’t just dust and mop your physical space… it to your mind as well.

Emotions associated with happiness

Hello Everyone and here’s to a healthy, happy and productive week!

I have just found this article and really want to share it with youz…but there’s no ‘reblog’ option, so I am copying  it in all its glory with the link to the amazing website. There are STACKS of inspirational articles. It looks like I’m going to spending a long time at the laptop today!

Go here:

Blessings & Light!

(At least we have SUNSHINE in UK today, that’s a blessing!)

Lying to others is wrong, but lying to
yourself is an absolute tragedy.

The worst lies are the ones we subconsciously tell ourselves.  They’ve been ingrained in our minds by bad external influences and negative thinking.  So the next time you decide to unclutter your life and clean up your space, start with your intellectual space by clearing out the old lies and negative self-talk you often recite to yourself.

Here are twelve such lies to stop telling yourself:

  1. I don’t have enough yet to be happy. – In every mistake and struggle there is a message.  Some people miss the message because they’re too busy berating themselves for the mistake, or fretting over the problem.  To be upset about what you don’t have is always a waste of what you do have.  The happiest of people aren’t the luckiest, and they usually don’t have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes their way.  The reason so many people give up is because they tend to look at what’s missing, and how far they still have to go, instead of what’s present, and how far they have come.  Read The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
  2. My dreams are impossible. – Don’t let someone who gave up on their dreams talk you out of going after yours.  The best thing you can do in life is follow your heart.  Take risks.  Don’t just make the safe and easy choices because you’re afraid of what might happen.  If you do, nothing will ever happen.  If you keep doing what you’re doing, you’ll keep getting what you’re getting.  Let your dreams be bigger than your fears and your actions speak louder than your words.  Do something every day that your future self will thank you for.
  3. I am stuck with people who hurt me. – Life is too short.  Look out for yourself.  If someone continuously mistreats you, have enough respect for yourself to leave them.  It may hurt for a while, but it’ll be OK.  You’ll be OK.  Oftentimes walking away has nothing to do with weakness, and everything to do with strength.  We walk away not because we want others to realize our worth, but because we finally realize our own worth.
  4. My failed relationships were a waste of time. – There are certain people who aren’t meant to fit into your life.  But no relationship is ever awaste of time.  If it doesn’t bring you what you want, it teaches you what you DON’T want.  We rarely lose friends, we just gradually figure out who our real ones are.  Never force someone to make a space in their life for you, because if they know your worth, they will surely create one for you.  And remember, when you’re up, your ‘friends’ know who you are, when you’re down, you know who your ‘real friends’ are.  It just takes a little time to figure it all out.
  5. Things will never get better. – There is no person in the world capable of flawlessly handling every punch thrown at them.  That’s not how we’re made.  In fact, we’re made to get upset, sad, hurt, stumble and fall.  Because that’s part of living – to face problems, learn, adapt, and solve them over the course of time.  This is what ultimately molds us into the person we become.  When you find yourself cocooned in isolation and cannot find your way out of the darkness, remember that this is similar to the place where caterpillars go to grow their wings.  Just because today is a terrible day doesn’t mean tomorrow won’t be the best day of your life.  You just got to get there.  Read Emotional Freedom.
  6. Failure is bad. – Sometimes you have to fail a thousand times to succeed.  No matter how many mistakes you make or how slow you progress, you are still way ahead of everyone who isn’t trying.  Don’t get so hung up on one failed attempt that you miss the opening for many more.  All of your ideas that don’t work are simply stepping stones on your way to the one idea that does.   And remember, failure is not falling down; failure is staying down when you have the choice to get back up.  Always get back up!  Oftentimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.
  7. Great things will come to me effortlessly. – We are who we choose to be.  Nobody’s going to come and save you, you’ve got to save yourself.  Nobody’s going to give you anything, you’ve got to go out and earn it.  Nobody knows what you want except for you.  And nobody will be as sorry as you if you don’t achieve it.  Never leave your key to happiness in someone else’s pocket, and don’t wait on someone else to build your dream life for you.  Be the architect and keeper of your own happiness.  The more you take responsibility for your past and present, the more you are able to create the future you seek.
  8. My past is 100% indicative of my future. – At some point, we’ve all made mistakes, been walked on, used and forgotten.  We’ve let people take advantage of us, and we’ve accepted way less than we deserve.  But we shouldn’t regret one moment of it, because in those moments we’ve learned a lot from our bad choices.  We’ve learned who we can trust and who we can’t.  We’ve learned the meaning of friendship.  We’ve learned how to tell when people are lying and when they’re sincere.  We’ve learned how to be ourselves, and appreciate the truly great people and things in our lives as they arrive.  And even though there are some things we can never recover and people who will never be sorry, we now know better for next time.
  9. I never need to meet anyone new. – It sounds harsh, but you cannot keep every friend you’ve ever made.  People and priorities change.  As some relationships fade others will grow.  Appreciate thepossibility of new relationships as you naturally let go of old ones that no longer work.  Trust your judgment.  Embrace new relationships, knowing that you are entering into unfamiliar territory.  Be ready to learn, be ready for a challenge, and be ready to meet someone that might just change your life forever.
  10. I can’t live without those who are gone. – If someone comes into your life and has a positive impact on you, but for some reason they can’t stay, don’t mourn for too long.  Be thankful that your paths crossed and that they somehow made you happy, even if it was just for a short while.  Life is change.  People really do come and go.  Some come back, some don’t, and that’s okay.  And just because one person leaves, doesn’t mean you should forget about everyone else who’s still standing by your side.  Continue to appreciate what you have, and smile about the memories.
  11. I’m not ready because I’m not good enough yet. – Nobody ever feels 100% ready when an opportunity arises.  Because most great opportunities in life force us to grow beyond our comfort zones, which means we won’t feel totally comfortable at first.  Stop berating yourself for being a work in progress.  Start embracing it!  Because being a work in progress doesn’t mean you’re not good enough today; it means you want a better tomorrow, and you wish to love yourself completely, so you can live your life fully.  It means you’re determined to heal your heart, expand your mind and cultivate the gifts you know you’re meant to share.  You are ready.  You just need to start.  Read The Power of Now.
  12. I have way too much to lose. – In the end you will not regret the things you have done nearly as much as the things you have left undone.  Trust me, you’d rather look back at your life and say, “I can’t believe I did that!” instead of, “I wish I would have…”  It’s better to think “Oh well,” than “what if.”  It’s better to have a lifetime full of mistakes that you learned from, rather than a heart full of regrets and empty dreams.

Uprising….my muse is muse

I don’t watch TV.

It hurts my brain, it makes it shrivel up. And makes me so sad that people actually find it entertaining. Celebrity gossip. Why? They are just PEOPLE underneath. Advertising. We don’t need these things! Think about it. They are making money. OUT OF YOU!

The list is endless.

Fashion, cosmetics (animal testing is my real trigger for getting crazy angry), household cleaning products, medicines….come on everyone, WAKE UP! It’s all about profit and most of it is damaging our health and the Planet!

Don’t get me started on Politics or this blog will never end!

I’m posting this amazing song as another of my inspirations. It reminds me to be an INDIVIDUAL, not to follow everyone else like ‘Sheeple’ and to look into everything I am told or shown, NEVER take anything as said by ANYONE.

Home. This is what I would like it to be…

”Home is a shelter from storms – all sorts of storms. ” ~William J. Bennett

I have read a lot about cosmic ordering and thought I would gather together some pics that I’ve had for a while. I will be printing them out when I can afford some ink! Meanwhile, I thought I’d do the next best thing and post them here.

I’m all about a Cabin in the woods with a lake……….

 This would be my little art studio, not far from the main cabin.

The terrace either at the front of my studio or the main cabin.

The view from the main cabin. There simply has to be a lake.

At the back..these gorgeous mosaic designs make it seem like a fairy tale house

The actual cabin. Oh bliss!

Part of the kitchen. Rustic and natural.

The reception area. I love antique furniture. Not the polished kind. The falling apart kind.

A little reading area by the window

Full of salvaged furniture and brick-a-brack with a story behind each.

Look at the ceiling. It’s like a derelict house. Atmosphere, ghosts and history! A perfect bedroom

Lots of light. Ethnic cushions on the floor to curl up next to a read a book.

Bringing Nature inside with a rustic iron bed

I will add more to this ‘Dream Board’ post as I find images that I love.


What an amazing lady! Reblogging this as it will help anyone out there who suffers from depression as well as those who don’t…because it’s always a positive thing to be grateful. And everyone can do it. Think of one thing RIGHT NOW and write it on a sticky note.

Behaving like a child. It’s dead good for you and stuff!

“We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.” ~George Bernard Shaw

I am often told that I am childish. Apparently my sense of humour is beyond immature. But I don’t care! I have enough ‘maturity’ to deal with on a day to day basis with worry about money, job, ticking biological clock, fiance’s depression, the planet about to implode on itself, animal cruelty, rain, whether my art is good enough to sell, I’m overweight, I need a holiday………..oh but I digress!!! As you can see the list of potential worry is endless…so why not indulge in a little bit of juvenile jollies? Ever played the silly word game? Not only is it frickin funny (if you’ve got a childish sense of humour), but it exercises your weird flappy bit in your brain that doesn’t get used that often. I don’t know its ‘proper’ biological, mature name, so that name will do for me. The create bit….the one that stirs up weird and wonderful thoughts and encourages one to ‘think outside the box’. You know…did Monty Python make sense? Nope. Were they mature and sensible? NO. Did you laugh insanely at them and feel loads better after? YEP. Enough said.


You’re just a pocket size bicycle turnip.

That’s funny.

Ok, but if you’re actually not one to go out in public and yell things like ‘Automative penis picker’ in a very loud voice for entertainment, you could try some of these things.

(If at this point you have decided to ‘un’follow my blog…so long and farewell…!!)

1. Spend time around young children.

They have this amazing energy….they are innocent. Innocence means they have not yet got the burden of ‘normality’ and ‘appropriate behaviour’ on their shoulders. Ok, so we don’t have to be inappropriate to have a laugh (see above suggestion to yell ‘penis’ in a public place. Sorry, I don’t really do things like that!)  but a little inappropriateness in a place with no impressionable ears, is a GOOD thing!

2. Take a walk or day trip without any plans or route.

I loved that on the film ‘The Yes Man‘ with Jim Carrey. They just flew anywhere where the first flight was going to. Turn up at the airport, go to the first ticket desk and go ‘Where is the next flight going, please? Himsfordingworth? Ok let’s go. (Now I am making up silly names for places. So childish!) Imagine, though? What you would see…(or not, but it would be exciting not knowing!)

3. Do art without thought of success.

I love to put a huge piece of paper on the floor, squidge lots of different colours out and just…..well… things. I use brushes, bits of wood, scraps of paper, paint my cat’s paws and make her walk over it (no, not really), even walk on it or sliiiiiiiiiiiiiiide! It is really a lot of fun, and sometimes it will turn into something…..hang it on your wall and tell visitors to your house that it’s by a new up and coming artist called Steve shlongdivisionmap. Have fun with all these childish made up names as well!

4. Invite a few fun friends over for a “play date.”

Do that thing with paint, but with loads of friends. Either that or do some ‘Hideous Baking’. See who can bake the most disgustingly horrific tasting cake. Or biscuits. Or spaghetti Bolognese!

5. Take the longest, most interesting route to work.

Get up like, 2 hours earlier than normal and work out the longest possible route to work, or wherever your boring every day routine commands you go. Well, I don’t mean get on a plane and go via Mongolia or anything, but keep it within the time limit. (Mature people are NEVER late for work! Shocking!)  Take a totally different route and see what is around you that you haven’t see before. I bet you see loads of cool places. I once found an amazing OVERGROWN, FORGOTTEN graveyard! Oh the bliss! Trouble was, I got lost trying to find my way to work after that and I was so late…oh no….irresponsible! I couldn’t find it again either, ( the graveyard, not my work place unfortunately) so a map would help. Teehee.

Lastly, I am really not childish. Most of the time anyway. Just on mornings like this, when it’s teeming with rain and cold…I’ve got lots of responsible chores to do like job searching and… job searching…I think, NO. Life is for laughing and exercising your flappy brain bits.

How do you keep the child alive????

Please take time to answer this quick quezzie

Hi Everyone,

As you know, I am in the process of getting ideas together to develop my little Arts & Crafts business. As my two passions are Arts & Crafts and Natural Healing, I am looking at a fusion of these disciplines to create ‘Healing Arts and Crafts’ that are both functional and beautiful to look at.

To start with, I would like to know what people are using in the world of Alternative Therapies. There are some disciplines here that I would like to work with, but I am open to others that are not on the list.

I have already created some pieces using Crystals, Aromatherapy, Colour therapy, Ancient symbols & Wicca and Angel Healing but obviously I need to gauge what’s popular out there so I can focus on fusing the right disciplines with my Art. Win-win for me as a business and the customer for their Holistic and Spiritual needs in life!

Thank you for clicking!


How did I make that Angel Affirmation Healing Wallet Card?

Here’s how!

Enjoy! And don’t laugh at me too much 🙂

Would be great to see some results of cards made by folks…please post a link to a photo if you make one

Blessings and Light
