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
