Alignment

You are extra special

Stay aligned to your core values and your path will appear.

There are times in our lives when we can feel lost and you must know, this can be a very normal thing.

In times like these, allow your core values to be your inner guide. By doing this, you will never take a wrong path.

Know who you are and what you stand for, then take baby steps towards staying aligned to your true self.

Know that you are extra special in each and everyway.

Patience is Underrated

Patience is beyond valuable

Patience is underrated, make sure you get some of that.

Patience is beyond valuable on your journey of life.

Develop your patience so you can face any tough situation going forward in your life.

This one I’m working on and it’s a whole lot harder than you think.

How’s your own patience?

Clarabelle

You Give

We all grow in different ways

You give, you grow, you live.

Giving is an ultimate part of living. We all grow in different ways but a better way to flourish is my giving yourself to others in a purposeful and meaningful way.

Give a little of your time, love, service and knowledge and you will surely blossom like a beautiful flower under the brightest sun.

Giving is living and growing is showing that everyday.

Clarabelle

Aspirational Vision

Be a person of aspirational vision

May your greatest dreams become you.

Be a person of aspirational vision and allow it to carry you forward into achieving your greatest dreams.

Your purposeful heart deserves to feel those powerful feelings of dream success.

Visualise yourself there, embracing the pure joy and inner fulfilment of your realised dream.

Keep on dreaming and keep on aligning.

Clarabelle

Applaud Success

Spread a little bit of goodness

Applaud the success of others.

When you are happy for others, you also receive their feeling of happiness.

Spread a little bit of goodness and joy today and celebrate all successes, not just your own.

We’re all in this together, so let’s help each other to win.

Wishing you a day filled with many wins.

Clarabelle

Think Great Things

Think Think THINK

Trust in your power to think great things.

Your thinking can take you high and your actions on that thinking can take you even higher.

You will always have the power to think think THINK, so master your thinking in such a way that it inspires you into meaningful action.

Think your way out of an unwanted situation and then go do the work.

What are you thinking about doing today?

Clarabelle

Peace of Mind

Honour your peace of mind

Peace of mind is everything.

When you have peace of mind, life feels like it’s meant to be.

Peace of mind gives you a different kind of calmness and flow.

Peace of mind, raises true thought and gives you clarity and purpose.

Peace of mind is absolute and exudes a special inner power in you, like no other.

Honour your peace of mind and you honour everything within you and around you.

Invite peace of mind into your life everyday and life becomes a totally different story.

Clarabelle

Feel Your Power

Don’t hold back this time

You are such a powerful individual and if you truly believed that, I know you would be living the life of your dreams right now.

I want you to believe in your self power, really feel it living and breathing inside of your body. Let this special power release its good energy into the world.

You, yes you, you are amazingly powerful and significant in every way and I want you to take hold of your self power today and move in the direction of your dreams.

Don’t hold back this time, just truly go for it and everyday this goodness will come back to you ten fold.

I think you’re ready for this, actually, I know you’re ready for this, so get your day off to a great start and release your power into the world.

Can you feel your power? I feel your strength and nothing beats it.

welcome them with open arms,

jump on that magical star.

Magical Thoughts

Passion serves purpose

Creative flow meets words of wonder! This poem is for you.

Igniting your spirit,
uplifting your mind,
believing in better,
one of a kind.

Magical thoughts,
words of wonder,
create such special,
like lighting from thunder.

Inspired by you,
entwined with vision,
moving forward,
with clear precision.

Something so strong,
pulling you there,
nothing else matters,
now you’re aware.

Passion serves purpose,
time gifts us well,
experience and knowledge,
now you can tell.

Open the door,
imagination set free,
you always knew,
this was meant to be.

Poetry Days

I will have a POETIC EMPIRE evolving before your eyes

I hope you’re having a truly wonderful day – I really do.

I was reflecting today (28 October 2022) on how much I love writing poetry, so much so, that I decided to change this whole Clarabelle blog into one GIGANTIC POETIC VISION.

So you will see that some things have changed around here and my main aim will be to continue to write poetry daily and share it with you. Going back to my roots and keeping it simple.

I will still add in some empowerment food for thought along the way but my strong focus now, going forward is, quite simply, to write poems and share them with you.

So there you have it. Poetry all the way.

The Clarabelle Podcast will now become the Clarabelle Poetry Podcast and I will share my spoken word poetry with you.

The motivational and encouraging posts will now be entwined in some sort of poetic format.

The videos I create, will all be poetic.

The Clarabelle products on sale currently all contain poetic verses and I will continue with this.

Basically, I will have a POETIC EMPIRE evolving before your eyes.

So that’s it for today. I am currently in Bonny Scotland visiting my lovely Mum who is celebrating her 80th birthday but I will continue to write on here daily whilst away.

My motto today is: keep it simple and do you

Thank you for being here.

Poetry Corner #5

you’re worth the wait

Welcome. Poetry Corner is every Thursday! Enjoy these whispering words.

WHERE FREEDOM WALKS

In troubled times,
forbidden glory,
tells doubtful minds,
the untold story.

A trek to find,
that special place,
where freedom walks,
and enters space.

A lonely haven,
or paradise
a risk, a battle,
roll of the dice.

Time is gold,
a rich man said,
you're worth the wait,
a coin for bread.

Silence whispers,
engaging thought,
questions answered,
of how and what?

Think it matters?
Know who cares?
A different you,
the one who dares.

Kicking the Brick Wall

if you’re angry, you’re wrong

Yes, you did read that right….. and what a really stupid thing for me to do!

2008

The year was 2008 and I was training for my first marathon. I was about 8 months into my training (out of 11 months in total) and was on a significant 16 mile run. Up until then, everything was going perfectly in my training and this particular Sunday morning run, started off really well.

I got to about 12 miles in, and soon, a little knee niggle became a huge big, pain in the butt – so much so, that I had to stop running at the 13 mile mark.

To say I was furious, was an understatement – I was so ANGRY and FRUSTRATED, that I started to agressively kick the brick wall next to me. I kicked that wall so hard that I nearly did myself some serious damage, but thankfully, I realised how stupid I was being and eventually stopped.

This ‘kicking the brick wall’ incident was very ‘out of character’ for me, and as I reflect on it today, I feel very bewildered by that ‘manic behaviour’ – it really made no sense at all!

LIFE

The ups and downs of Life WILL put our true emotions to the test and it’s our job to have internal control over how we respond to these emotions. Anger, frustration, aggression and crazy behaviour, NEVER EVER works…. period!

I recently watched a video interview of a former Royal Marine, who shared one piece of learning that was so POWERFUL. In this interview, he said, “if you’re angry, you’re wrong” – WOW . . . . . just think about that for a minute.

RERUN

So let’s take the aforementioned running incident and deal with it all over again, today, as it was back then. What would I do? Well, as soon as I felt the little niggle at the 12th mile – I’d stop, flag a taxi, rest the overworked knee and celebrate my progress to date, with my favourite bar of chocolate!

*IMPORTANT NOTEno bricks walls were harmed in this 2008 incident, only a bruised EGO that needed to learn a hard lesson!

I’m Not Scared

run wild, free and happy

When you become free from the limited minds of others, then you will have the ability to face most fears – if not all!

Self-conscious thinking is never going to get you anywhere but stuck and believe me, ‘stuck in the mud”, is not a good look at all.

When you’re thinking and doing becomes boundless, you achieve more and more each and everyday.

When you go from being fearful to saying, “I’m not scared”, you open a whole new world for yourself.

Don’t be a prisoner to your thinking, because none of it is real anyway.

Shift your cellblock mindset to beautiful thoughts of open landscapes, where you run wild, free and happy.

I know where my thoughts would rather be!

Think about your thinking – is it serving you well right now?

JUMP TO IT!

Take responsibility for your own choices and decisions in life – this is a must!

Are you feeling a little unfulfilled in your work life? That can be very normal and can also be changed, albeit, where applicable.

Focus on what you can control in your workplace and also on what you can control, outside of work. This is one great way of accepting responsibility for taking positive action and not wasting your time and energy on things you just cannot control.

Think about purposeful and meaningful ways you can contribute to your work environment and/or job tasks. This will definitely make you feel a lot better and your work will most definitely benefit too.

In situations, where your work has closed the door on being a more fulfilling workplace for you – then think about what you can contribute to outside of work that offers you a more enriching life experience.

Please don’t go blaming your boss for work tasks that you initially signed up for and that now don’t ‘rock your boat’. Take responsibility for your own choices and decisions in life – this is a must!

Work your best with what you’ve got and gradually make small but impactful changes to enhance your life.

There are many options for you to explore here and it’s important you take the time to think about all the pros and cons of going one way or the other.

Bit by bit, if you really put the effort in, you will change things for the better. Dedicate time today to plan your future needs and wants – then jump to it!

It’s Your Life – GO GET IT!

Dreamlike Moments

What if it does work out?

Dreamy Dubai

Don’t you just love a beautiful morning sunrise?

When I lived and worked in Dubai a few years ago, I used to go for 5am runs towards the stunning Dubai sunrise.

The morning sunrise in Dubai was as picture perfect as you could get it and it really did make a positive difference to the rest of my day.

A Good Solution

The lovely air conditioned gym in my apartment block, didn’t open until 6.30am and that was too late for me – so an early morning run, before the heat became unbearable, was a good solution for me.

Wonderful Opportunity

I also had the wonderful opportunity, whilst staying in Palm Jumeirah, to go for morning swims before work. I remember during those blissful swims, feeling so wholeheartedly grateful for manifesting those dreamlike moments into my life.

Lots of things didn’t work out for me in Dubai or I would have stayed there for so much longer but I NEVER EVER think of that. I put my focus on what did work out and the truly wonderful people I crossed paths with and learned so much from.

Embrace Every Opportunity

Don’t expect things to be perfect in life, when you try something new or go to a new environment to live or work in but DO EXPECT to embrace every opportunity that comes your way, for that indeed makes up the true essence of you.

Never think, “What if it doesn’t work out?”
ALWAYS think, “WHAT IF IT DOES WORK OUT?”

A doubtful mind is a horrible burden to carry.
An empowering mind, on the other hand, will carry you there.
NOTE THE DIFFERENCE!

Your dreams are for the taking and now is your time!

Don’t Play the Blame Game

forge forward with all your might and self-power

The title says it all really, doesn’t it?

If you ever, EVER hear yourself blaming others for something that is NOT going right in your life, I want you to STOP that useless thinking RIGHT NOW!

You are where you are, because of YOU. Hold yourself accountable for your own decisions, choices and wants that took you to where you are standing today.

If you are NOT happy with where you’re at, don’t go blaming anyone else for that. Take control of the situation NOW and do what you need to do to CHANGE that.

The past is the PAST, the present goes so fast, it is basically the past – so focus on your future wants and needs and bring your “A” game to the table in order to achieve your desires.

Don’t ever play the “blame” game – I promise you, it’s pulling you backwards and that’s not a progressive direction to be heading in.

Forge forward with all your might and self-power and let go of that draining blaming stuff today.

Go on then – oh and don’t blame me if you don’t do it!

I see you flying high…..always and I want you to see it too!

Monday Morning Blues?

you deserve to experience the best of opportunities out there

I can honestly say, I haven’t had the Monday Morning Blues for a good few years now and I never want to have them in the future either.

I remember, in my much younger days, getting these feelings, which often started on the Sunday evening!

I know, most of you can relate to those feelings of ‘dread’ going into a job that, for your own reasons, didn’t feel right.

I made a promise to myself a few years back that if I ever got so low again going into a job, I would sort that stuff out super fast.

Thankfully, I know what I want from a job and how I can utilise my skills and experience to contribute effectively. I also know how I want to be led and empowered to bring my best game to the table on a daily basis.

You have the true capacity and pure potential to achieve everything you want from your work and you are in control of whether you make it or break it.

I believe you deserve to experience the best of opportunities out there, so make sure you bring your ‘A’ game every single time.

There is this great quote by Rumi, “what you seek, is seeking you”, and for me, this quote is a wonderful reminder to never doubt your capabilities and be mindful of the many doors that are open for you – just walk right in.

You got this – always!

Uplift My Spirits

to a happier place

Uplift my spirits,
higher than the sun,
guide me through,
all that needs done.

Tell me everything,
I need to hear,
even in silence,
let it be clear.

Sometimes I feel lost,
strange in a way,
not in the crowd,
but bewildered each day.

The path I have chosen,
doesn't feel right,
how did I get here,
without the pure light?

Is there a turning,
to a happier place,
where doing what I love,
fulfils me with grace?

If what I do seek,
is surely seeking me,
maybe this wrong track,
is where I should be?

And what if the rainbow,
is not far away,
and its spectrum of love
guided me to here today?

Light Comes Back

stars appear

This is one of my favourite original quotes and the excerpt is taking from a short poetic story I wrote many years ago. My plan is to turn the story into a book one day….watch this space!

“The midnight sky is vast and black, yet stars appear and light comes back.”

CHAMPION HEART

give life your all

When the wild wind blows,
and you're down on your knees,
begging for mercy,
praying for please.

Lift your head high,
stand up tall,
break down those barriers,
give life your all.

Many would hope,
for your inner strength,
running on empty,
but going every length.

Your champion heart,
can carry you forever,
up the highest mountain,
across each raging river.

See yourself winning,
battling each storm,
building the new,
challenging the norm.

July – Question of the Month

Sunshine

Welcome to the first day of July.  At the beginning of each month I give you a question to ponder and answer for yourself, I also share my own answer with you.  Below is July’s question for you:

Question:  

What one thing could you do today, that would make a positive difference to your life right now?

My Answer:

I know that when I pray for myself and for others it always makes me feel better and I do feel that my prayers are always answered.  Before I say my prayers I say “Thank you” for listening and at the end of my prayers I say “Thank you” for answering my prayers.  So this month I will start and end each day with a prayer to help me and others stay strong, focused and committed on the journey of our life purpose.  What is my life purpose?   Well it would take a long time for me to answer that one, but let’s just say that this blog is definitely a massive part of that.

Thank you for dropping by today and I hope this question helps you to think about what you need/want to do in your life to make positive changes happen for you.

Much love to you today, Clarabelle

Practice on Purpose

I was talking to one of my clients only last week about deliberate practice towards a desired goal that is in alignment with your core values.  Today I came across this YouTube video by Dr Bill Crawford, I really love his work and what he stands for, I learn so much from him.  Watch the video below, it really does make a lot of sense.

Wishing you a wonderful day today, love Clarabelle.

Passion Keeps You Strong

To all my fellow bloggers, passion keeps you strong;

Expressions from your heart, that’s where you belong.

Creativity flows, when your soul talks to you;

Mesmerized in the moment, defining what you do.

I hear your calling, I feel it in your words;

The writing is on the wall, beneath the flight of birds.

Magic comes from you, you’re mystical for sure;

Your posts are like gold dust, to your audience they are so pure.

Poemcasts for YOU

I do hope 2013 is getting off to a great start for you. I am so focused and driven to achieving my goals this year and one of them relates to putting a lot of energy into this blog and making it even better and more impactful for you.  I can genuinely and honestly say that I LOVE this blog, I just love working on it, love sharing with you and love reading your comments and your posts too.  

Podcast Host

Whilst looking into blogtalkradio this evening, I came across a podcast host, http://www.podbean.com.  I got so curious and excited about it and after a good 6 hours playing around with it and voice recording some of my poems, I have now created my own Poemcast website http://poemsbyclarabelle.podbean.com which is directly related to and linked to this blog.  I wanted to create podcasts, which as I am sure you have guessed by now, I have renamed to Poemcasts (thanks to a wonderful conversation I had with my friend Tom last year – his idea).     

Poemcasting

I think it was Tony Robbins who said the quote “where focus goes energy flows” and I can’t agree more, because my focus on making this blog even better has led me to a new world of Poemcasting!!  I share this information with you today, because you may wish to try it out for yourself.  

So, if you would like to hear my beautiful Bonny Scotland accent whilst reciting some of my poems, you can.  

Below are three links to my most recent Poemcasts for YOU, I do hope you enjoy.  

PBC Poemcast 1 – Happiness is the Way

PBC Poemcast 2 – Love is Free-Flowing

PBC Poemcast 3 – Postcards from the Heart

I have also added the above links into the related posts on this blog and I have a lot more to update!!

I am sure I have still a lot to learn but baby steps all the way and I am very excited on this journey.  

Much love to you as always, Clarabelle.

Can you understand my broad Scottish accent?

The Soul is Talking

Each day I wake up with a brand new mission, I ask myself these questions, “What is my mission today?”, “How can I serve greatly?” and “How will I stay connected to my purpose?” – for some people, these are not easy questions to answer, for me, I have searched deep within my soul and have been moved by the voices in my heart. This is why I write this blog for you, by creating lyrical art I answer all three questions at once.  My soul it talking and it’s talking to you.  The next poem is inspired by just that.

The branch of the tree, edges out in time

The voices are loud and sing in rhyme

A soft breeze is blowing, I stand alone

A picture perfect, as I dream of home

Today the mission, is to commit to myself

The importance of happiness and my inner health

To serve greatly, give out my heart

Share unspoken words, through my vision and art

Imagination seeks, fuel to ponder

Creative spirit, such a special wonder

The page that was blank, now is full

The soul is talking, scribbles do rule

Stay connected to your purpose and so much will come

Opportunity is now, grasp it and run

Whispering Words

Time ticks on, moment after moment, breath after breath.  The sun rises, the sun sets and the clouds drift in slow motion, pause for a second, appreciate the time you have and live your life in meaningful pursuit.  This next poem is for you….time is of the essence. Wherever you are, I do hope the sun is shining on you.

Whispering Words

Time is of the essence, appreciate it well

The senses are awakening, I’m under your spell

Whispering words, silence in me

This daisy chain of life, surrounds the hollow tree

Each petal of hope, floats carefree in the breeze

Touching hearts, melting the freeze

Connecting souls, shining like stars

Breaking down barriers, bending the bars

The mind thinks, with passion and belief

Summer searches on, as I grasp the autumn leaf

And in the palm of my hand, I hold it tight

It’s a fragile treasure, escaping from the light

To let it go, is brave and true

Seasons change hope, that grows within you
