To my TF

I know I said everything was cool. In many many ways, it so is, but why is my heart finding it hard to resist you? As soon as you walk towards me and smile, my soul starts flying. You always hug me, but I always try and hold on to you for a little longer than you do. We are always in crowded places; lately pubs and the festival hall, or at work. I’d like to hug you and just rest there for some minutes, REALLY feeling my heart next to yours. Those eyes of yours are like amazing shiny stars, but at the same time they are the bottomless ocean where I drown and come alive simultaneously. Let me be there for a while too. It feels like my home.

I want you to open up to me, not only about your fears, frustrations, ideas and passions, but I want to see your playful child, the one that can freely express joy and fun without your reluctance to be vulnerable. I’d like to make you laugh until you cry. That’s what you deserve my love, you deserve freedom to be you.

I want us to cook a meal together and for you to feed me like you did today. (I almost cried when you offered me a fork of that sweet delight, but you probably didn’t realise why I refused it at first. It was just a beautiful gesture, but I couldn’t take it). Then, after we’ve eaten and had some wine, we can just relax…lay down on the sofa if you like and appreciate how our love of food make us feel comfort and security. We don’t even have to talk. I want to look after you and you to look after me, as we do now but on a more profound yet simple level. If you’re happy and content, then so will I be.

You told me you don’t want intimacy. But wouldn’t it be beautiful to see our fingers entwined? You have got such lovely hands, I always look at hands and yours are just perfect. I know they would fit mine like a glove. Please, just hold my hand one day soon. The thought of anything sexual with you is such a mind blowing concept to me even though I feel that we would be connected again in our inexplicable way that begins with the soul, engulfs my heart and my body too. You are frightened of me, aren’t you? You are insecure, but my god, you don’t realise that far from taking you over in any way, I will be liquid in your hands. I would never be forceful, we would never be just having sex. No, it would encompass everything I am and all the unconditional love I have for you. Being one body as we are one soul would turn me into us. If you’re not ready for that, I respect and understand always. But please, before you leave, touch my cheek with that soft hand of yours and kiss me! I long for this to happen. You have no idea how much I need to feel your lips.

There is nothing more beautiful than you and my dreams of me and you.

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.

Linmim.

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…..do 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????

I am in the process of doing a lot of research into a variety of subjects around Natural Therapies, Holistic Treatments and the use of Amulets and Talismans.

I am fascinated by fusing these ancient practices with my art and craft making, to create pieces with meaning and real healing properties. Not just pretty pictures or cards to put on the mantel. Pieces that use colour to uplift your mood or aromas to relax your body of stress. Jewellery that works with the body and mind to offer protection,  encourage creativity or aid a restful night.

I want to get back to the connection we once had with Nature and all that Mother Earth offers and at the same time show gratitude for this by using environmentally friendly materials and recycled metals.

I have already written pages on the subjects of Angels, Goddesses and Spirit Guides and Colour Therapy. There will always be more to add, but so far I have researched the basics. Please use the following links to see these pages:

http://www.birdsbecomefishes.co.uk/colourtherapyandhealing.html

http://www.birdsbecomefishes.co.uk/angelsandspiritguides.html

The following pages are yet to be started. I have pieces for sale already such as healing jewellery using Crystals, and textile pieces using Aromatherapy to aid relaxation and alleviate insomnia.

 
  • Crystals & Chakras
  • Aromatherapy
  • Talismans & Amulets
  • Reiki
So here is my suggestion. I am wondering if people with expertise, skills, knowledge or fascination with any of the above subjects, would like to contribute to my site. I am not an expert in any of these subjects, so it would be great to work with anyone who is! It will benefit all of us as my site gets around 100 visits a day on average, so your work would be out there for people to see. I would of  course, link anything anyone did on my site, BACK TO THEIR WEBSITE OR BLOG. It would be win-win!
Please contact me here as a comment or email me on serenajaneturner@yahoo.com if you are interested!
Waiting with excitement!
Blessings and Light

Sorry if you can’t simply click on this link. Something is wrong! Please copy and paste instead.

I am in the process of editing it after completing the first complete draft.

I really would love to see it published, but who knows?

Anyone got any advice?

Ideally I would love to illustrate it as well. I have included my mood board images and the sketches of the characters in the article.

Any comments or advice would be very much appreciated.

Thanks and Bright Blessings!

~ 28 Signs You are ASCENDING ~

I must tell you all from the offset that the following article was on Facebook, NOT by me,  but I had to save it somewhere. I think many people would benefit from reading this. It was posted by Realm of Tranquility. Please click on this link to visit the page.
It is a subject that I am very much into at the moment as I am experiencing an overwhelming empathic state constantly, an equally overwhelming desire to live simply (to the extent of wanting to throw my mobile phone, mum’s TV, and laptop into the nearest deep lake), and a knowing that everything is shifting. My eyes are foggy, people are moving too fast, I am detached and uncaring about most people’s concerns. Everything seems fake. I feel like I could put out my finger and scratch the surface of something and reveal everything that is really happening and what people are feeling. I am reclusive but at peace with that.
I have written some notes below the listings in Italics. Any comments would be appreciated. I’d be interested to hear how others feel about this!
~Here is the full article~
Know that although our evolutionary processis rapidly accelerating, along with the new higher vibrational energies. We are all experiencing these changes in our own way and in our own time, according to who we are and according to our coding and plan before birth. In addition, generally speaking, our ascension process relates to how we each run our own individual energy and what our beliefs and experiences are. In other words, how we are wired and how we vibrate. These things can be changed and will also change automatically as we clear and embody more light within ourselves. For the highly sensitive, psychic and those very open to the higher realms, the ascension process can be a bit more challenging.
BEGINNING EXPERIENCES

1) Moving into a better job that supports the expression of who you are, your passion or your mission, which are basically the same.

(I am unemployed and never been happier. I get to create healing art and explore these amazing subjects!)
2) Greater financial abundance as you’ve never quite experienced before.
3) Most of your dreams come true and easily
4) You attract a new mate/partner or you and your current partner have a relationship revolving around companionship with no issue related “hooks”. You love, admire and adore each other for who you are with no dependencies.
(I met my soul mate two years ago. It was literally like a fairy tale. We were engaged within 6 weeks)
5) As you further evolve, you re-unite with your “twin” who is a total reflection of you. Being together is like being with yourself and you feel a unity to Source as never before.
6) You don’t seem to care much about anything and nothing seems to matter anymore. You have evolved out of the Old way of being of drama and emotions.
(Not many subjects I hear being discussed seem relevant. People gossip and talk bullshit most of the time)
7) You have lost your interest in the “New Age” arena.
8) You KNOW that all your needs are met and will always be.
9) You no longer have the desire or need to make things happen, “to try” or “to fix” anything. You understand “allowing”, “acceptance”, “being” and “intent”.
(I let things be. I don’t even agree with revenge. See my recent post:https://thenomadicangel.wordpress.com/2012/03/23/thoughts-on-revenge/ )
10) You can no longer relate to mental and analytical processes. You now relate to “feeling”.
11) You no longer care what anyone thinks about you or anything else.
(I never have cared!)
12) You understand that there is no right or wrong, good or bad, or black or white. Everything just IS.
13) You finally realize that there is no dark or light. The appearance of lack of light is simply to provide a contrast to spur us on to creating what really feels good. All energy is always going in the same direction, supporting the light.
14) You have lost your desire to read books or gather any more new information as you are now much more connected to Source and can gather it “directly” by being, feeling and “knowing.”

15) Your health improves and/or you experience a miracle-like healing of a long standing physical ailment.

16) You crave a simplicity in all things and require and thrive on simple processes, simple desires and a very simple lifestyle.

(I wish I could live off the land with organic vegetables and eggs, rising with the sun and sleeping with the twilight)
17) You begin to experience a flow to life at a slow leisurely pace, where you need not do anything you do not really wish to. Everything falls into your lap. You experience much basking, savoring and gratitude for the simple things in life.
(Everyone else is rushing around and achieving nothing)
18) You only desire to do what is yours to do and no longer have a life full of mundane “..responsibilities”. When much releasing has been completed you are then left with a purified you…a gold nugget of your divine expression. This is your contribution to the New World.
19) You easily pick up the thoughts, feelings, desires and needs of others, as you are becoming telepathic.
(Empathic and telepathic. This is really killing me at times! See my recent post:https://thenomadicangel.wordpress.com/2012/02/25/absorption-my-downward-spiral-other-peoples-emotions/ )
20) You can control your emotions, your experiences and create your world with your mind and intent without doubt or fear.
21) Your surrounding environment has little effect on you. You don’t take things personally. Nothing is really worth getting that upset about.
22) You have an unquenchable thirst for creativity. The enormous amount of energy running through you demands an outlet. You feel most as home and in alignment with Source when you are in your passion and creating.
(I am doing so much creative work, it feels like I am being guided)
23) You laugh a lot and find many things amusing and funny.
24) You have a heightened love and compassion for all living things. You are also experiencing higher states and more frequent state of love and joy.
(Went back to vegetarianism last year)
25) You live in the moment without a “day planner”. Things just naturally unfold day-by-day and moment-..by-moment. All stress is gone.
26) You feel incredible peace. There is a distinct absence of fear and you feel safe.
27) Your inner child seems to have disappeared (relating to issues and wounds), although you love to play and frolic. Much of the time you just want to play, play and play!

28) You begin to have an understanding about how everything is connected. You understand that there are no mistakes

This is my latest piece. It’s the front of the Major Arcana Card ‘Earth Element’ for my Angel Elemental Inspirational Card Pack. Please see recent post to view my other work: https://thenomadicangel.wordpress.com/2012/03/11/the-water-element/
I am feeling a great connection to all the Natural Elements and this pack will show how we can all connect and learn from all the elements for a more fulfilling and spiritual existence.

Thoughts on Revenge

Signature of Mahatma Gandhi.

Signature of Mahatma Gandhi. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I don’t do revenge.

I believe life has a constant force. The force you exert on others is the force that will go back to you. Sometimes it may not be back directly but it will always find its way.

This was written by a lady on http://paulocoelhoblog.com/2011/01/07/on-forgiving/.

I believe this, even though I haven’t got any particular examples to site here. It makes perfect sense.

What if someone stole from someone. The person who had his/her thing stolen would be very angry, naturally so. But, would the right thing to do be to go and break into their house and steal something of theirs? No! Why?

1. That makes that innocent person now a thief as well as the original thief. What has changed? Nothing. It has made matters worse because now there are two criminals instead of one.

2. What does the innocent person gain? They might feel better, hahahahaaarrrrrr I’ve got my money back, BUT what does that money represent? Is it REALLY their money? Will they really feel better about themselves when the initial rush of the act has worn off?

3. If the original thief finds out who it was, won’t they want to get revenge on the revenge? When will it end? In someone getting arrested, hurt, killed?

Surely it’s best to get to the bare root of the scenario. WHY did they take the money? Maybe they are starving, maybe they needed it for medicine…who steals money for fun? There has to be a serious reason. The only way to prevent these things from happening is to get to the root cause and try and find a solution. If it’s not rcognised, it will continue……it’s much like taking aspirins for headaches…isn’t it better to find out WHY you’ve got a headache and get it fixed, than to just DISGUISE the problem?

“An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind.”
― Mahatma GandhiThe Story of My Experiments With Truth

Actions brought on by anger and bitterness will never solve any problem or conflict. If revenge is the only solution then people will just do worse and worse things to each other and all understanding and communication will be lost. The only way we can stop people from doing things we don’t like is to tell them why we don’t like it and if they continue, we will not share our lives with them.

”How people treat you is their karma; how you react is yours.”
– Wayne Dyer

The best way to treat someone who has done you wrong is to be kind…..not overly so, just enough for them to see that you are not going to let them ruin your day/week/life and that you are evolved enough to understand that actions have consequences. If this makes them wonder, then good. If it doesn’t then it’s not your problem. They are not evolved enough to realise this. They will reap what they sow in time and maybe learn from it. Your job is to get on with your life and make sure YOUR karma is good!
