Ramblings about life . . .
What I share about my life is simply to help reinforce the understanding that it is possible to live with love and laughter, in between the tough times.
Life is what we make of it, no matter how harrowing. We accept and embody this with-in ourselves, thereby allowing the energy to manifest outwardly in our reality.
It starts with each one of us as an individual to form the collective consciousness.
Be the dream.
We honour the light and the life within you.
Please be aware - I upload other bloggers' posts and then delete after a month. This is my journey and others help me understand where I am, until they become irrelevant (a few posts excepted).

Guardian angels come in all shapes and sizes. The universe doesn’t expend huge amounts of energy creating one from scratch – it’ll use whatever is to hand. So don’t be surprised when something comes along that isn’t your idea of what an angel should look or act like. Judging in this way stops you from seeing the ‘real’ thing.
A story my daughter recently told me underlines this very strongly.
She’d recently travelled back to Sydney and was waiting at the station for her aunt and uncle to fetch her. She was alone and surrounded by all kinds of drunken revellers. In her mind she asked for protection. Within seconds a huge tattoed man drew level with her as he spoke on his mobile. He glanced at her and stopped talking to ask her if she was all right. She said she was okay and was waiting for her lift. He continued to talk on his phone for a few minutes more then settled next to her on the bench stating he would keep her company whilst she waited as he was worried about her being on her own. Daughter was slightly puzzled and a bit wary but accepted that all was okay. They sat and chatted until her lift arrived and then he departed once he knew she was in the safe hands of our friends. A simple gesture from someone who could have been a threat to her.
So she received her ‘protection’ and didn’t realise it until I pointed it out to her. She said that he’d mentioned he was involved with all kinds of unsavoury things in his life as a gangster, but despite this she didn’t feel threatened in any way.
Now let’s clarify this. She sent out a call and the universal energy responded and sent her someone close to hand. How she handled the situation was up to her. She could have gone straight into fear and he would have responded to that energy by being the thug he insisted he was. She could also have thought "wow, an angel" and gushed all over him thus opening herself up once again to being in victim mode. His energy could so readily have picked up on either scenario and done his usual by victimising her. Instead, she was slightly wary but accepting of his company and he responded in kind.
Every single person out there has the ability to be such a protective angel or a hellish demon despite what they seem like in real life. Energy, energy, energy. All thoughts and emotions are simply energy.
I’ve noticed through the years that I can be good, bad or indifferent towards someone. Put me in the company of someone who seems weak and my predator claws come out. I want to smack them down with a harsh word or act. Their victim energy is interacting with my domineering energy. We all have bits of this in us. In turn the person who was victimised by me might feel domineering to someone else who is playing the victim.
It’s your choice what you want to be. Remember this, it’s not only what you feel on the surface that counts – there’s lots lurking beneath the surface. One kind of energy could counteract another underlying energy.
Confusing stuff but the more you learn about yourself the more confident you’ll become. It means digging deep and facing aspects of you you’d rather not know about.
