The Time Will Come

Inner Butterfly

Over the last few years I have been writing lots and lots of poems, words of inspiration and motivation.  These writings have come from my inner wisdom, my corporate business knowledge and true and heartfelt life experiences.  All of my writings have been compiled into 10 books, which are currently available on Amazon. These books went “live” on Amazon in June this year, with the wonderful help from a very successful editor in America, Steve Mann.  To my absolute delight and amazement, last night, I read some truly wonderful 5 star book reviews and I wanted to share some of them with you today:

On my book, Clarabelle’s Musings:

“This full compilation of Claire’s positive thoughts, inspiring messages, and motivating jottings will make you feel like you just drank 6 energy drinks, without the heart palpitations. Her words pick you up, help you view your life in a different, more positive way, and provide you with the belief that you can accomplish anything.”

On my book, Clarabelle’s Affirmations:

“Psychologists and therapists have long known that affirmations can help us all to stay on course in the goals we set for ourselves. Heck, even Oprah has spoken about how important it is to have daily affirmations for yourself. Claire, through her prose and poetry, offers us affirmations that we can use on a daily basis to help us to set goals and achieve them.”

On my book, Clarabelle’s Keys to Happiness:

“We all know that to be happy all the time is an impossibility because without sadness, we would not truly appreciate happiness. Claire through her prose and poems, reminds us of what it is like to be happy and how we as individuals are responsible for our own happiness. Through her words, she unveils the secrets that really can help us all to achieve happiness more often.”

On my book, Clarabelle’s Christmas Joys:

“Who doesn’t love Christmas? Well, actually, there are a lot of people who don’t. But Claire’s words bring us back to the true reality of what Christmas is all about. It’s about the joy of family, the appreciation of the blessings we have, the use of our talents to share with others to help them, and the love of keeping the people who matter to you, close in your life. Claire’s superlative use of words remind us all of the true meaning of Christmans and how we should be thankful for the joys we have in our lives. I loved it. I love Christmas. Why not read it like I did, and feel empowered to access the true Christmas Joys.”

On my book, Clarabelle Presents Nature’s Gifts:

“Claire’s expressive words bring a new appreciation to all that is nature. Her prose and poems lighten the spirit and make the heart sing with joy.”

On my book, Clarabelle’s Moving Motivations:

“What are we without human motivation? Simply a shell of a human body that walks around with animation, but no direction. Claire’s writings provide motivation to all of us to dream, believe in our dreams, and take the steps necessary to achieve our dreams.”

On my book, Clarabelle’s Heart and Soul:

“People don’t often make the connection of importance between the heart and the soul. Of course, we all know, without our hearts, our souls will wander. But Claire’s exquisite jottings show how closely our hearts and souls are connected, not just within our own bodies, but also in how we connect with other hearts and souls. Claire, in her quiet writings, paint a clear picture of how dependent we as fragile humans are upon not just our own hearts and souls, but the people we touch in our lives and those who touch us in our lives.”

On my book, Clarabelle’s Creative Inspirations:

“Claire Murray is a talented and gifted author and poet. Her jottings inspire me and make me feel positive, happy, and make my heart sing with joy. Thank you Claire, for sharing your gifts with us. I thoroughly enjoyed all of your books. Getting up every morning and reading one of your prose or poems gave me a burst of positive energy to start my day out right and helped me to see normal things that happened throughout my day in a positive light.”

On my book, Clarabelle’s Poems of Love:

“When Claire writes about love, it really is a Splendid Thing. Through her words she is able to transport the reader back to young love, first love, and mature love. It brings back the beautiful memories of falling in love and staying in love.”

These reviews were written a few months ago and I honestly didn’t know I had made such an impact with the person reading them.  This makes me very happy.  It just goes to show, and I truly believe this, when YOU are ready, “The Time Will Come” when your inner butterfly will spread its wings and flutter to the hearts of others.

Thank you for being here, I love you for it.

All my love for a beautiful day, Clarabelle

Clarabelle Poetry

You know I love my poetry and I am in a poetic mood this morning.  Here are some morning reflections from me to you, put into one of my favourite creative writing styles…..rhyming poetry, this one might just get you thinking.  Set yourself free, break the chains of old habits and make fulfilling choices from this day forward.  You can do it.  Love to you Clarabelle.

Break the Chains

A starry night,
A blissful morn.
Another routine,
There goes the car horn.

A rush, a rumble,
A dash to the door.
Caught up in the moment,
Head to the floor.

Then all of a sudden,
The alarm bells ring.
How did this happen?
What did I bring?

Is my life,
just passing me by?
Am I really happy?
I ponder and sigh.

To break the chains,
To let it all go.
Would test my bravery,
Against, “go with the flow”.

For I’m in control,
I make the choice.
Do this or that,
Share my voice.

The river runs fast,
The sun will rise again.
But remember your life
Is like ink in a pen.

Writing the pages,
of what is to be.
Until it runs out,
What’s left to see?

So decide who you are,
become your greatest self.
The world will not wait,
Get your book off the shelf.

Have clarity, choose wisely,
Let your heart lead the way.
Because times ticks on,
So make this your day.

The day you change,
The day you reach out.
The day you believe.
Your dreams, are worth a shout.

Slow the picture down,
Play it back in your mind.
The crossroads of your life,
Holds the answers, seek and find.

Be a like a butterfly,
Fluttering in the breeze,
Your courageous soul is open,
Change your life, if you please.

I wish I was a Butterfly

Poem, I Wish I Was A Butterfly

The poem below signifies for me how my own journey relates to that of the metamorphosis process of the butterfly.  Metamorphosis is a Greek word that means transformation or change in shape.  I am fully aware that some people don’t like change, they might prefer to stay in their ‘comfort zone’ as they don’t want to face their deepest fears.  However, sometimes it is more painful to stay tight in a bud than it is to flourish and blossom.  For me, this is a process that is not to be rushed and where true patience is welcomed in life.  There is only one constant in life and that is ‘change’ – put yourself in the driving seat!!

I Wish I Was a Butterfly  

I wish I was a butterfly, dancing in the air

Sparking in the sunshine, so wonderful and rare

The beauty is in the detail, the colours so bright

I watch you fluttering, in the magical sunlight

You are on a journey, now you are free

To move in the moment, like a honeybee

Fragile in my hands, strong in the mind

I’m mesmerised by your life, it’s one of a kind

Sweet, sweet, butterfly, where do you go?

A soft breeze under your wings, only you do know

You’ve awakened my soul, the world is your own

You’ve come through the stages, developed and grown

I look in the mirror and to my surprise

A butterfly is on my shoulder, I can’t believe my eyes

You represent freespirit, inside of me

You whisper the truth, of what I’ve always wanted to be

Today I am here, with my dreams in my heart

The suitcase is ready, waiting to depart

The destination is exciting, I’ve waited so long

Now I am ready, I know where I belong

Patience was a virtue, so evident and true

Babysteps forward, from the back of the queue

I’m next in line, a new chapter awaits

As I close the door behind me and enter new gates

Thank you dear butterfly, you’ve taught me alot

This life is for living, as I join the last dot.
