I Remember When. . .

Everyone in the community knew each other and looked out for each other.

MY SWEET SWEET MEMORIES FROM THE LATE 70S & EARLY 80S

You could leave your house door open during the night;

You could go for an early sole run in the park with no fear;

You would chat outside to your next door neighbour for hours;

No one carried a mobile phone and everyone coped fine;

Children played in large groups outside after school;

Local playgrounds were filled with children, without the need for parents being there;

Children used their imagination and played ‘made up’ games with their friends;

You only had one true best friend but it was called a ‘best pal’;

We didn’t have a landline at home and no one really cared;

All family dinners were home made;

A holiday was going on family day trips to the closest seaside location;

There was only three TV channels and we felt spoiled for choice;

If you could afford a taxi, you were rich;

If you missed the bus, you had to wait another hour on the next one;

Those tiny bronze half pence pieces existed and you felt you had loads of money;

Children would jump for joy with a 10 pence mix up;

Children played water fights during the summer holidays with empty washing up liquid bottles;

Everyone in the community knew each other and looked out for each other;

Hardly anyone had a car;

Getting a 50 pence toy from the local shop, felt like Christmas;

The milkman delivered your glass bottles of milk on your front door step every morning;

As children, we played, football rounders, hide and seek, skipping ropes, kick the can, hopscotch, obstacle courses, sprint races, tennis, swingball, talent shows…and all outdoors!

My Dad, Grans, Granda, Aunties, Uncle, Godmother and some good School Pals were all living back then – now sadly missed . . . . . . oh how I remember when!

Rise Up

Think about your THINKING today – is it rising high or laying low?

You’ve got to think high to rise! This line is from the famous poem entitled, “Thinking” by Walter D. Wintle

Small thinking won’t get you anywhere impactful. I encourage you to allow your thinking to “RISE UP” and take charge of your being.

Big thinking, doesn’t need to match up with big steps – baby steps will work too!

I would rather take tiny steps forward towards a GREAT VISION than take large steps towards a low level goal.

Think about your THINKING today – is it rising high or laying low?

Don’t read this article and do nothing my friend – for that truly is the lowest level of thinking and doing.

I encourage you to turn up the temperature in your life and rise like the heat on the sunniest of days.

Have a high level day hot stuff!

Impactful Thinking

don’t be scared to demonstrate the best of you

There is absolute genius in you and you’ve got to believe that.

No other person in this world has had the exact same experiences as you or thinks exactly like you.

You can always bring ‘another level’ to whatever you are involved in.

Don’t be scared to demonstrate the best of you. Be proud of you and your true potential, enabling you to get to where you want to go.

Never shy away from what you truly deserve to have in your life. Only you can hold you back – now read that line again!

Be a sponge for learning new things, no matter what age you are and ensure you focus your energy on what really matters to you.

Mix all of the above with undeniable self-belief and you’re on your way to not only changing yourself for the better but to having a positive impact on the world too.

You may not think about it in this way, but you really can inspire others with what you say and what you do – that’s how powerful you truly are.

Go out today and show everyone what you’ve got. Your future success relies on today’s impactful thinking, so make sure your brave heart, leads you through every unknown battle and into the life you truly deserve.

Remember, the Champion is in YOU.

Excited for Change

you were always the answer

When you really start to get excited about the positive changes you want to make in your life, that type of feeling becomes a true magnet for what you want to manifest.

This type of future thinking – excited energy, really does bring about the right vibe for wonderful transformations to take place.

So don’t focus too much on the problem, keep your mind on the solution and desired outcomes.

I feel super excited for you because I know your greatest potential will be your mirror very soon.

It’s time to strengthen your soul with the deepest power of visualisation and self-belief.

You were always the answer.

Keep that thinking high and your actions higher.

Oh Beautiful Flower

growing so free

Vibrant youth,
bountiful in art,
graceful in nature,
sweet miracle heart.

Oh beautiful flower,
in my soul you do live,
the scent of your life,
forever it gives.

I watch you in awe,
growing so free,
a magical creation,
a wonder to see.

Inner Inspiration

At the moment I do 3 blog posts per day and people ask me where I get my inspiration from to write those articles and keep it up. Let me tell you something, I have no challenge at all with being inspired to write, I could write to you all day everyday, it would always be a joy for me. I know writing is for ME, I just love it, I never ever get tired of writing to you, for you and for me. Writing keeps me going, writing on this blog to you inspires my soul and uplifts every part of my being. I can write at any time of the day, inspiration is always there……it’s never ending.

I know creative writing is definitely ME, I live and breathe it with my passionate heart.

I have amazing, fabulous plans going forward that will allow me to write even more and more and more…….so my beautiful friend, watch this space, watch how this all flourishes before your very eyes.

I love having you here, I really do and I’ll never stop writing to you for I know in my heart this is ME.

Love Clarabelle,

PS: Staying committed to the dream, I trust you are too. 🙂 IMG_3447.JPG

Be Open to this Understanding

Sometimes in life we want to be a little shut off from the world….like having “temporary me” time, to give ourselves time to adjust, adapt, heal, plan, write, reflect…..or whatever that needs to be.

It is important to recognise when you need that time and not to feel obliged to expose it. When you are ready you will and not before then….this is valuable “me time”. It’s okay if others find it strange to understand at first, it’s better for you to “seek first to understand before being understood”, than the other way about. See it from their perspective first…..it will free your mind up to continue to focus all your energies on you.

If this is you, and/or you are in need of some “space” and some precious “me time” make sure you have it…….it will be good for your soul and you will re-emerge out of your cocoon with renewed energy and a fresh perspective on life.

Be open to this understanding and it will help you every step of the way.

Soon you’ll be flying……soon my friend, believe that. 🙂

Much love to you, Clarabelle

September – Question of the Month

copy-timeline-photo.jpg

Every month I give you a question to reflect upon and I also provide you with my own answer to that question.  Here is this month’s question for you to ponder:

Question:

Which of your core values is most important to you?

My Answer:  

In my work as a Coach I explore core values with the individuals I work with, I feel it is so important to understand what your values are and what each value means to you.  My number one core value without any doubt is “Love”.  What does “Love” mean to me? Love is everything, without love for self and for each other, life for me would be meaningless.  Love has an invisible power, like no other force, love is the answer to all conflicts and broken down relationships.  Love is magnetic, love is nature, love is peace, love is love, is love.  “Love Redeems All” (that’s on my Vision Wall).

On 21 December 2012 I was invited to attend a Winter Solstice meditation event.  Here is an extract from the invitation:

“This year’s Winter Solstice is an extraordinary event that has been anticipated and speculated by the astrologers for many years.  I’m sure we have all heard about the Mayan calendar ending its significant cycle on that day.  There is another most powerful event that is taking place on December 21st 2012. On that day the planet earth will be part of the Galactic Alignment that takes place once every 26,000 years. We are having this meditation with the intention to align with this monumental event. When we come together our energies converge to create a powerful magnetic force that attracts the universal energies. Together we are more than the sum of its parts. We do this in support of the transformation and growth which we hope to maintain in the coming year of 2013.  This event will never be witnessed by us or by many generations that follow us. We cannot afford to miss this opportunity for honouring and letting go of the Old with grace and gratitude, and embracing the New in trust, surrender and joy.” 

I had never been to anything like this before and I was excited to go.  It felt really strange at first, just because it was all new to me but I felt I really embraced the event with all my heart. When I came home from the event I drew the following picture of “Love“, at the time I never fully understood what I was drawing, I was…..well, just drawing because it felt right at the time.  Now, as I read more on the subjects of “The Quantum Field”, “The Law of Vibration” and other related topics, I am really starting to understand what my drawings mean.

Love isWhat does love look like to you?  If you had to draw a picture of “Love” what would it look like?  I’m cheating now because that is more questions.  :-)

I will leave you with those thoughts of love.

Much love to you today as always, Clarabelle.

Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff

Our Universe is hugely vast and ‘Earth’ is so tiny in comparison.  This video is fascinating and demonstrates it very well.

“Keep life in perspective and don’t sweat the small stuff.”

Take Root and Grow

sun shine

I am big on personal development, it is a massive thing for me, so so so important.  I also believe patience and timing is so important too.  Mix these things together and you get the following quote:

“Be patient, give the seed time to take root and grow…..then you WILL flourish like never before”.  (Clarabelle)

Please don’t rush the journey, enjoy the now, enjoy the learning and enjoy the growth, there is a much bigger plan for you, the Universe is bringing it to you, all in good time my friend, all in good time.  🙂

Much love to you today, Clarabelle.

One Year On

Clarabelle Logo

Happy Birthday Blog 🙂

Today, I celebrate the birthday of this blog, it is one year old today.  I love putting my heart, soul, passion and energy into this blog and I feel it is evolving as I am evolving.

Inner Growth

I didn’t plan to do this blog, it wasn’t one of my goals but I do remember the day, one year ago, when I decided to set it up here on wordpress.  Prior to that, I had been writing lots and lots of poetry and I was gaining so much inner growth and special connection from my creative self expressions.  Something just clicked with me that day, on 20 April 2012, there was a heightened moment of realisation, a momentary illumination of the heart, that I should share my poetry and other creative expressions on a blog.  I just felt there was this strong inner calling to do that – so I did, I acted on it straight away, with no hesitation, it was a very enlightened experience indeed.

The Story of My Life

It was the right thing to do, this blog is part of me now, it’s the story of my life, the sharing of my secrets, it demonstrates the strength in my vulnerability and the love in my heart.  It has been soul baring, deeply moving and heartwarming at times, I have shared poetic reflections that I used to only whisper to my shadow.  This blog is about who I am and what I am becoming but I know I would not get the same fulfillment, deepest gratitude and satisfaction from it, if it wasn’t connecting with other souls – it has to inspire hearts – it has to help YOU to evolve and advance too.  

I want for you what I want for myself and that is to truly live life, to truly love life, to be who you are, to answer your inner calling, to shape the right way forward for yourself in alignment with your values, to have peace and knowing in your heart that you are all that you ever need to be, to have faith and trust in your ability to use your creative imagination to advance you forward in life and attract a never ending abundance of all that you have ever wanted.  You are on the path to personal evolution, you never came off it, it’s time now to enjoy the scenery and truly live in this moment now……..as I write this, I hear the birds singing outside – in the beauty and gratitude of each precious moment the miracle of life right now will always give us what we need.

Go create with pure passion in your heart, for the tide of opportunity wants you to surf its waves and refresh the soul of the deepest oceans.

Thank you for reading my posts, I truly mean that from the core of my heart.

Much love to you today, Clarabelle
