When Will You Get There?

Let me tell you something, I was thinking about this, only this evening. If you’re looking for the end, if you’re wanting the process to “hurry up” then whatever it is that you are doing, may not be for you.

I write to you, everyday I write, I never look for the ending, I never think, when is this piece of writing going to end. The reason being is that I love it so much, love never wants to end, it’s continuous it’s unbreakable, the bond only gets stronger.

So if you’re looking into the distance and questioning, when will you get there…….maybe you have to change the question…….and if you have to change the question, then I guess you already know the answer.

Never ever will I stop writing to you, because even when my soul has passed on to another dimension, my spirit still shines in you, the reader and this then inspires you…..and the light continues to shine on.

You may only be one candle, but this one candle, has the power to light up the Universe.

Please remember how empowering you can be.

Light up your world and you light up the world of everyone around you.

I see your light, love Clarabelle

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. ūüôā IMG_3447.JPG

Happy Creating

The imagination is such a wonderful thing, keep on creating and continue to exercise that beautiful muscle.

See in the mind’s eye what you want to achieve in life, envision that so very powerfully in your mind and live and breathe your desire. It’s got to come to you, your everyday behaviours will help you achieve that. So choose wisely in what you do daily and ensure you are putting your energies in the right direction.

Let your imagination come alive and fuel your desire for success today.

You can do it,

Love Clarabelle

Everything Is Going To Be Okay

I woke up this morning feeling peaceful but alert inside, and then I said to myself, “everything is going to be okay, you’ve got control of this life”.

I then received a telephone call from a lovely friend and we were laughing, joking and we had such an inspirational conversation. The conversation was about him listening and acting upon his heart and the truly wonderful, positive outcomes that have come from this.

Listening By Doing

What if you listened to your heart and I mean “listening by doing”, that’s right, doing what your heart feels. Often we hear the whispers of what touches our heart and soul but we don’t really do anything about it…….but what if you did?

Think of a time when you did listen and act on your heart’s desires……..I’m thinking about a moment right now and it is making me smile…….it always included my writings and making someone laugh, smile or give them gentle words of warmth and encouragement to ease their current pain.

Trust that your heart knows the answer and demonstrate in your “doing” what you hear.

Much love to you, Clarabelle

Who Are You?

believe

I wrote this last year for YOU.

You can also listen to the audio speech here:

Who Are You? You are special, a person with a heart, a loving heart, a soul, a singing soul, a spirit, a happy spirit.  You have dreams, great, great, dreams.  You have plans, big, big, plans.  You have faith, strong faith in the mystery of the unknown and YOU BELIEVE.

You believe with every part of your being that only magnificence lies before you.  You have a unique power that goes beyond the impossible.  You have an energy that attracts true abundance to you.  You are alive and are grateful for all that you are and for all that you are becoming.

You can create magic around you because you breathe and do with passion, every baby step that you take on this journey of life.

The miracle of all miracles is in you and in every path you come across.  Every heart that you touch, every soul that you inspire, every star that you catch and every rainbow that protects you from the storms.

You are at one with yourself, in the silence of all silences your spirit shines and your light guides you out of the darkness.

You fly, you soar, you reach for the mountain top and when you get there, you see far in the distance another higher mountain to climb.  But it is in the challenge of every challenge to only ever reach the top.  The top is never ending, the beginning is never new, life is, what it is.

Life is how you see it. 

Life is how you live it. 

Life is how you love it.

There is freedom, there is abundance, there is everything you need and want before you.  You can’t see it with your eyes, you can’t touch it with your hands but it is living, breathing and dancing around you.  This invisible space is your space, your space to fill with smiles, laughter, love, joy and happiness.  Nourish the space around you by nourishing peace from within, because even in stormy weathers you can find a calm place.

So go to the edge of the mountain top because it is waiting for you with open arms.  Other travellers want to hear your story, want to learn from your experiences, good or bad.  They want to know, what you know, to help them on their own journey of life.

Then you must find a quiet spot and listen to the sound of the wind, whispers of the greatest knowledge will come to you and you will use this wisdom to carry on.

Yes you may feel broken right now.

Yes you may have cried enough tears to fill a river.

Yes you may feel like a failure and all your self-worth and self-confidence has gone.

But I want to tell you something. It’s still there you know.  The best part of you is still living in you. You still have that spark. You still shine.  You are loved deeply and your heart knows this.
The mind can play games with our feelings, but the mind has no hold over the power of the heart.  Close your eyes, feel your heart, feel its energy, feel its power, let it grow inside of you.

You are very special and you can and will do this. You will turn your life around for the better.

This is the moment that counts, this is when you decide enough is enough.¬† This is when you say ‚ÄúI am strong, I am better than that and I believe in me and my potential.¬† I am whatever I choose to be and I choose to be what I believe in my heart.¬† I am my greatest dreams, I am.‚ÄĚ

Never settle for too little because you have such a lot and to not unleash your true talents into this world would surely keep you from the wisdom that is truly yours.

Trust in you, trust in your abilities, trust that everyone is asking similar questions and this is your time to fight back.  This is your time to answer with your heart.  This is your life, to love, to live, to learn and to lead.  Capture that feeling in your heart right now, let it flow through every vein in your body, let it illuminate you with drive, determination and self-discipline, now mix it with passion and purpose and you’re on your way.

You are free now, free to make the right choices and decisions in life that will make you the BEST EVER YOU.¬† Your new life awaits ‚Äď make every moment count and GO GET IT, because nobody deserves it more than you.¬† You have all the qualities within you to make it.¬† Thrive, grow and shine NOW and FOREVER.

Question of the Month

beach and birds

So here is this month’s question for you to ponder and reflect upon,

What makes you feel good?

Well, for me there are lots of things that make me feel good but the one thing that sticks out in my mind right now is writing. ¬†The funny thing is I never really liked English at school but I did love Mathematics. ¬†It’s really strange how things have turned around because now I love writing and reading and I am not a fan of the number crunching anymore.

This blog has really helped me to connect with my thoughts, my feeling, my emotions and my inner creativity – I feel at peace when I write, it is so soothing and calming for me and it works as a dual purpose because I write to inspire you too.

So I do really hope that you are enjoying reading the articles on this blog – they come from a peaceful mind, a happy heart and an inspired soul.

So what makes YOU feel good?

Lots of love to you today,

Clarabelle

Working Together

successful blog

Collaboration

Collaboration is just a great thing. ¬†I have been working together with a wonderful gentleman, Mr Steven Mann, in relation to my creative writing….poetry, words of inspiration and other musings. ¬†What a team we make and now you can access and download a number of my “Clarabelle’s Musings” on Amazon. ¬†There are 10 books for you to choose from and also a paperback format of a wonderful collection of “Clarabelle’s Musings”.

Here is an Amazon link to them: ¬†Clarabelle’s Musings

If you click on the above link it will give you a preview of the contents inside, worth a look if you want to be inspired, motivated or moved in an endearing way.

Below is an extract from one of the books:

Be Grateful for Life

Create ‚Äėflow‚Äô in your life,let worries melt away,

Yesterday has gone but the learning can stay.

Tomorrow is not here, live for today,

Enjoy each precious moment, in every way.

Be grateful for life, the moon and the sun,

Be grateful for your family and everyone.

Smile at your neighbours and the stranger on the street,

For your smile is contagious, to all that you meet.

Happy is the heart, that glows from within,

Embrace life and love, and forever you’ll win.

 

Thank you for reading this post, I really do appreciate it.

Lots of love, Clarabelle

Question of the Month

Clarabelle Photo Shoot

You

Every month I share a question for you to ponder and I also provide you with my own answer. ¬†Here is this month’s question for you:

How do you express your individuality?

Here is my answer:

I express my individuality most definitely through my creative writing. ¬†My original poetry comes from a special place in my heart and my songwriting comes from the core of my soul and the melody of my songs from my happy and harmonious spirit. ¬†That’s how I express my individuality and it can be quite an emotional experience for me, but it is authentic to me and speaks only truth.

We are all so very special and unique and I feel it is so important for you to express who you really are and I would love to know how you do that.

Wishing you a beautiful weekend with some precious time in there for you and for you only.

Lots of love, Clarabelle

iTunes Runaway Love

Runaway Love, Clarabelle

Single “Runaway Love”

I am delighted to say that I have reached an important milestone in my new Singing/Songwriter career path. ¬†My single, “Runaway Love” has now made it on iTunes today and I am so excited. ¬†It’s been exactly 6 months and 2 days since I wrote the song, all alone in my little cosy home in Motherwell, Scotland.

Vision

I had held this Vision in my head and heart since I started this journey and although I have a long way to go, I feel very proud to see my original song displayed on iTunes. Here is the link for you to see:  https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/runaway-love-single/id808343271

I feel I am progressing quite nicely and I am doing my first private gig this week, so all very exciting.  I am pushing myself out of my comfort zone and I know I am growing by doing this Рthis is such a fulfilling journey!!

Singing Poetry

I started this Clarabelle blog mainly to share my poetry and it has evolved into so much more than that. ¬†The blog, I feel, has gently and graciously guided me into my Singing/Songwriting Career, for sure. ¬†I like to call my songs “Singing Poetry”, original poetic verses with a beautiful melody.

So it just goes to show that if you are passionate about something in life YOU can make it happen, you’ve just got to take that first baby step.

May each step that you take today move you closer to achieving your dreams.  Thank you for being here.

Lots of love, Clarabelle

2013 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.  Thank you, love Clarabelle

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 15,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Click here to see the complete report.

Yes You Can

Original Music

If you are a regular visitor to this blog you will know that I have been working away behind the scenes on my own original music.  This creative process takes along time but I am very pleased to say that I am certainly making progress.  I have a great team of professional musicians behind me and it makes the whole process a whole lot easier and make the songs better too.

The Youtube video below was recorded by me 2 days ago and it is the first live recording of me singing my original song “Yes You Can” to the guitar backing track which was arranged and played by Shako from New York. ¬†I am sure you will agree that Shako did an amazing job with the backing track. ¬†Things are certainly not perfect, keeping it real here for the moment, but I just wanted to share with you the progress that I am making.

Dream Come True

I feel very proud of myself because this is a dream come true for me. Next step is to take the tracks to the recording studio to be professionally recorded with the assistance of an expert sound engineer, this is in my current planning.

Yes You Can

The song “Yes You Can” has very inspirational and motivational words and I do hope it empowers you to “keep going” with whatever YOU want to achieve in life.

Thank you so much in advance for taking time to watch the video and please let me know what you think because I really do welcome your feedback.

Much love to you today, Clarabelle

Bubblegum Ambitions Video Poem

I hope you like this next video poem, it’s about dropping the ego, not focusing on competition but focusing your creativity and authenticity as you move forward in your life. Much love to you today, as always, Clarabelle.

Bubblegum Ambitions 

You are not what you have, or even what you do,

You are what you are, be grateful for you.

To compare your life, to another one,

To aggressively compete, under the sun.

Will take your ego, into the sky,

Bubblegum ambitions, no tears you will cry.

***
But then one day, there will come a time,

You want to change, from what’s mine is mine.

You crumble to the floor, and what once was real,

Is starting to flake, and numbness you feel.

There is always a way, to shine at night,

Glowing and flowing, it’s a natural flight.

***
Silent is the heart, it speaks to you here,

Vibrations of energy, simmer the fear.

Truth is where it’s at, go to the ocean,

The waves clear your thoughts, love is in motion.

Now you are hollow, now you are free,

Knowing what you live for, let your life be.

Clarabelle Blog Vision Statement

I’m Flying Without Wings

Here is a video poem by me, entitled “I’m Flying Without Wings”, I hope you like it. Wishing you a beautiful day today, lots of love Clarabelle.

I’m Flying Without Wings

Life is good you know,
my spirit is alive.
Being just myself,
like a bumble bee in its hive.

Focus is so strong,
and grows deeper day by day.
The world around me is changing,
I’m living well this way.

Creative imaginations,
are like flowers in the spring.
Their beauty is forever abundant,
I’m flying without wings.

October – Question of the Month

clarabelle-cartoon-character-2.jpg

Welcome to October’s question of the month post. ¬†At the beginning of every month I like to pose a question for you to contemplate and I will also share my own answer to the question for you. ¬†October’s question:

Question:

Now that we’re in the the final quarter of 2013, it is good to reflect on your achievements of the year so far. ¬†What are you most proud of achieving this year so far?

Answer:

This is a difficult one to answer for me because I honestly feel there are so many things that I am proud of achieving this year so far and a lot of it is not always immediately obvious to the outside world because a lot of it is related to self mastery, understanding oneself, become true to myself and being the person that I am and that I am becoming.

If I had to choose one I would definitely say it is related to moving forward with my singing/songwriting career.  I have such passion and soul connection to this ambition. This year so far I have taught myself how to play the keyboard, created 9 instrumentals and written 25 original songs over a 6 month period.

Everything related to me moving forward with this part of my life feels like a miracle to me, it was as if it came out of nowhere but it was a childhood dream deeply cemented in my heart. ¬†I do truly believe that if I didn’t start this blog in April last year, I am not sure if the singing/songwriting would have unleashed itself so quickly, or even at all!! ¬†It is as if this blog was the planting of a seed “the new me” and every blog post has nurtured that seed to grow, develop, flourish and blossom. ¬†This blog I am so very grateful for, this blog was certainly last year’s number one achievement by far. ūüôā

Reflection 

It is good to reflect on your past achievements and I would encourage you to answer this month’s question and also take time to celebrate your achievements. ¬†After all you did it and you deserve it, you deserve the happiness it brings you.

Now, that we’re into the last quarter of 2013, make it the greatest three months of your life, I know I am.

Much love to you today, as always, Clarabelle.

Gratitude, Gratitude, Gratitude

It’s All About Gratitude

About 6 weeks ago I shared on this blog that I was creating an eBook on gratitude, the eBook is entitled, “It’s All About Gratitude”. ¬†I have been working on its content over the last couple of months and I hope to have the eBook published very soon.

In the meantime, I thought I would create a Youtube video which shares a little bit about the eBook and some original quotes from it. ¬†Everything on this Youtube video has been created by me i.e. the photography is all my own, the background music has been created and played by me, the ¬†original quotes are all my own and I created the video too. ¬†I am the first to admit it is not a perfect production but at least it is a start ūüôā

I hope you like it and I plan on getting the eBook published very soon, you’ve heard it here first!!

 

Guest Post of the Month – Linda Smith

Poetry from the Heart

It is my pleasure to introduce you to a wonderfully talented young lady, Linda Smith.  Linda is such a positively inspiring person and I have known her from my childhood.  She writes beautiful poetry from the heart and one of her poems is shared with you below.

Linda Smith
Beautiful Poet, Linda Smith

Introduction by Linda

Hi my name is Linda Smith and I like to write about things which inspire me, and all my writing comes from the heart. My whole outlook on life changed after my battle with anorexia. It taught me that life is priceless and should be treated as such. My philosophy is ‘You only get one shot at life, so live it to the max.’

I have a beautiful family, 2 girls, who mean the world to me and whom help, and support me with everything I do and without them I would be completely lost. I work with children and it is a wonderful job because of the innocence which they possess.

As well as writing poetry, and verses, I love to go to the gym because while I’m working out I get time with my thoughts. I love to smile, and make other people smile to because it costs nothing to make someone feel good just with smiling at them.

A Heart Full of Happiness

I look from within and what do I see,
A heart full of happiness shining at me,
For all I’ve been blessed with and all that I have,
My family, my friends, my ambition and drive.

I’ve had my troubles and problems alike,
But I know that someone is there like a light,
Switching my sense on and telling me why,
I shouldn’t get down, upset or cry, because.

I look from within and what do I see,
A heart full of happiness shining at me,
For all I’ve been blessed with and all that I have,
My family, my friends, my ambition and drive.

I’m thankful for all the chances I’ve been given,
For everyone who has been there, including those now in heaven,
Life is for living, not for dwelling,
We only get one shot so make it worth telling.

I look around to see where I am, not my area but my life…..you understand,
I ponder over it and think to myself,
I’ve achieved what I want to and still have plans,
My family and friends I love with all my heart.

I look from within and what do I see,
A heart full of happiness shining at me,
For all I’ve been blessed with and all that I have,
My family, my friends, my ambition and drive.

So the next time I think of complaining,
I’ll stop and wonder why I’m havering,
Because people out there are worse of than me,
These people need help, support and to cry a new tear,
But me, hey, my life’s not perfect,
But I’ve got what I want, who I need, and a bundle of love, so.

I look from within and what do I see,
A heart full of happiness shining at me,
For all I’ve been blessed with and all that I have,
My family, my friends, my ambition and drive.

Poetry by Linda Smith, created on 18 September 2013

Thank you Linda for being part of this blog and for sharing your wonderful poetry with us, you truly are an inspiration and your words are so beautiful. ¬†Clarabelle. ¬†ūüôā

Soul Growth

soul growth

Do something today to honour your soul.  Something that will deeply connect you to your true self.  What might this be?  Well, for me it could be any of the following:

  • Taking time to pray
  • Make up my own prayer
  • Write a heartfelt poem
  • Spend some time reflecting on my Vision Wall
  • Declutter the house
  • Writing a song
  • Creating music
  • Reading a book on a subject I’m passionate about
  • Writing a meaningful and purposeful blog post ūüôā
  • Meditating
  • Writing a Gratitude List
  • Listening to my favourite music
  • Spending time with my close family and friends
  • Going for a long run
  • A walk amongst nature
  • Helping someone

The above, are just some things that help my own soul growth but for you in might be something completely different.  Do whatever works for you, as along as you do it.  Soul growth is such a special type of development that really gets to the core of who you really are.  Personally, I really love it and I will continue every day to develop my soul.

What will you do today to honour your soul?

Wising you a beautiful day filled with smiles, joy and happiness, may your soul shine with great courage, true spirit and unconditional love.

Much love to you today, Clarabelle.

This Moment

green river

Give thanks to this moment right now because having gratitude is such a beautiful thing. Have faith in the mystery of the unknown, believe with all your heart that what you truly desire it making its way to you right now.

“People who can sincerely be thankful for things which they own in imagination have real faith. ¬†They will get rich; ¬†they will cause the creation of whatever they want.” ¬†Wallace Wattles (1860-1911)

Vision Wall by Clarabelle

About 18 months ago I shared on here a post regarding a Vision Wall I created, this was strongly based on my belief, faith and imagination of what I wanted to create in my life.  I am delighted to share with you, that most of this has come true for me and I look forward to sharing that with you in a future blog post.  You can also check out the process that I went through on the VISION WALL page of this website.

Thank you for reading this post, lots of love, Clarabelle

The Sound of Inspiration

Inspiration is Everywhere

I wrote this song because I wanted the lyrics to inspire people to really believe in themselves and go for their dreams and goals in life. ¬†The song is entitled, “I Am The Greatest” and I want the person singing along to it, to really believe that they are and to feel encouraged and empowered by the words from within. ¬†Inspiration is everywhere and I do hope you find some of it in this song. ¬†Below is the Youtube video of me singing it for you. ¬†I am still working on the backing tracks but I didn’t want that to stop the process of me sharing this with you. ¬†ūüôā Wishing you a day filled with love and inspiration, love Clarabelle.

What is Happy Ever After?

True Happiness

I believe “Happy Ever After” has nothing to do with the “after”, I believe it is in the now, right at this very moment, because this moment, right now, is always we have. ¬†I created a poem this evening about “What is Happy Ever After?” and I also recited it on Youtube for you. ¬†I hope you like it. ¬†May this moment, right now in your life, fill you with true happiness, lots of love Clarabelle.

What is Happy Ever After?

Peace from within, joyful inside,
Gratefulness in the moment, being your guide.

The brightest star, shining on you,
The rainbow smiling, on what you do.

The deepest love, you ever could feel,
Hugging each other, on the family and friends wheel.

A kiss, a cuddle, a warm embrace,
Being in the now, no happiness to chase.

Calmness in the soul, free from stress,
Creating space, living with less.

So on this journey of life, enjoy the laughter,
This is my answer to, “What is Happy Ever After?”

August Guest Blogger – Douglas Robertson

Please let me introduce you to this month’s very creative Guest Blogger, Douglas Robertson.

Douglas Robertson
Douglas Robertson

Douglas has¬†always been interested in art but says that he hasn’t really drawn anything recently but does love photoshopping. Douglas says, “I suppose what I do is the equivalent of what ‘pimp my ride’ is to cars as to what I do to pictures/photos. I sometimes refer to what I do as ‘digi-punk’ art. Basically I either get an idea for a picture and create it by taking different parts and pieces of other pictures to create a new one.” ¬†

The other thing Douglas likes to do is turn a photograph into a ‘painting’ by using various effects and layers and many ‘paintings’ can have as many as 20 layers.

When I, (Clarabelle) went on holiday this year to Ibiza I took a photo of my footprints in the sand, Douglas then added his own creative art to the photo and used one of my original poems to add a touch of uniqueness too. ¬†Douglas says, “the ‘footprints in the sand‘ picture with poem had about 8 layers and was itself the result of several ‘halfway’ pictures to get the final result.” ¬†

footprints in the sand

Douglas also takes his own photographs with the view to photoshopping them when he gets home Рa good example of that is: Photo 1 and the original photograph:  Photo 2

Douglas’ Next Steps

My next step would be to actually turn my creations into real paintings by actually getting the brushes out and painting versions of them. ¬†Below is Douglas’ own caracature creation of himself. ¬†ūüôā

I Am The Greatest

Greatest Songwriter

Just Believe

Sometimes you just have to believe that YOU are the greatest, you have to believe in yourself, you have to believe in your abilities, you have to believe that you are capable of achieving so much more. ¬†You have so much potential, there is so much more of you to unleash, so much more of you to share with the world. ¬†Now I want you to hold onto that thought and I want you to flip an imaginary switch and when you do, you 100% believe in you, now watch what you are doing, look at who you are talking to, What changes are you making in your life? What are you doing differently? ¬†Just believe, just believe, just believe in YOU. ¬†I wrote the lyrics, “I Am The Greatest” (see below) last month because I was strongly visualising myself being the greatest songwriter of all time and then I wrote it down (picture above).

Vision

I believe, I have faith in the unknown and I know the Universe is working in my favour and bringing it to me.  I made the decision, I made the commitment and I acted upon it, I now treasure every person and thing that I attract into my life that moves me closer to my vision.

YOU

Now I want you to believe in you, believe in it all, believe and have faith in the mystery of the unknown, that once you commit to doing something, once you commit to achieving that goal, it’s going to happen for you, sooner or later it is going to happen for you. ¬†You are the greatest and I want you to believe that.

Below are the lyrics to my song, “I Am The Greatest”, this will be released as part of my Album, “The Becoming of Me”, I think the melody that goes with this song is really great, it is really uplifting and empowering, definitely a song to be listened to first thing in the morning or when you are feeling down and want a little boost, the song will definitely do that for you.

“I Am The Greatest” by Clarabelle created on 22 July 2013

Verse 1

You’ve gotta put the hard work in
And let your mind know
In order to catch the falling star
You’ve gotta move and go
Time it will not wait for you
Life moves very fast
So step it up, get going
Live it up, get showing
Say  I Am

Chorus

I am the greatest
I’ve changed my ways
I’ve reached the rainbow
Happy sunny days
For I am the greatest
So watch me fly
I am the greatest
This is why

Verse 2

Times are tough I know sometimes
Keep going until the end
To reach the top you have to go
Be real do not pretend
You can be the champion
You can have it all
So live it up, get moving
Play the game, get grooving
Say  I Am

Bridge

I feel my heart
I feel my soul
In changing moments
This I know

Chorus

I am the greatest
I’ve changed my ways
I’ve reached the rainbow
Happy sunny days
For I am the greatest
So watch me fly
I am the greatest
This is why
This is why
I will fly

I want you to fly today, I’ll be watching you, love Clarabelle

“No TV….Weirdo”

clarabelle-cartoon-character-21.jpg

Coaching

I was coaching a client in July 2011 and she was talking about not having a TV anymore, there were lots of positives coming from this discussion, so much so that when I went home that evening I didn’t want to have a TV anymore either, so I got rid of it, that very day.

Positives

I must say, this has been one of the best things I ever did and so many positives have come from me not having a TV.  I started to read more books, make more time for exercise, visit people more, talk to friends on the telephone, research into subjects I was interested in, focus more on developing myself and my business and one of the best positives was then having the time to start this Clarabelle blog and post on a regular basis.

Weird

When I made this decision the people around me thought I was being “weird”, some of them still do. The first thing people usually ask me when they come into my home is “Where is your TV?” and now I very proudly say I haven’t had a TV for over 2 years and I love not having a TV. ¬†Usually this is followed by “Really, well what do you then with your time then?” and I very happily tell them all the positive things I do which grow me as a person, maximise my wellbeing and build my relationships with other people, sometimes I will even refer them to this Clarabelle blog. ¬†ūüôā

Self Development

I am not saying that not having a TV is for everyone, it just really works for me, I live myself and prefer now to read a good self development book rather than watch a drama on TV.

All in all a very good decision for me and the positive outcomes have been tremendous.

Below is a picture of my living room, living happily without a TV. ūüôā

Clarabelle's Living Room
Clarabelle’s Living Room

You may want to keep your TV for various reasons but maybe you could consider reducing the time you watch it, for e.g. 1 hour less per day, that will then give you an extra 7 hours per week to do something else you may not have time for right now!! ¬†Just a thought ūüôā

Wherever you are today, whatever you are doing, I do hope it is helping you to move closer to your goals.  Lots of love to you today, Clarabelle.

I truly feel that this blog is part of my life now, I just absolutely love it and I really do hope it shows and that it offers you some real value when you visit.

I started this Clarabelle Blog on 20 April 2012, it was unplanned, something came over me that day and I just acted on what I was feeling and I now know I was so right for doing that. ¬†I remember that moment very clearly because I was super excited to get it going and my first blog post was a poem I created called “Superhero” about a friend of mine.

Yes You Can Because You Are The Key

Life is too short to wait

Today I have been in creative mode, I have written two inspirational songs so far and I am very pleased with the outcome. ¬†The songs are entitled “YES YOU CAN” and “YOU ARE THE KEY”, once I have had my songs registered with BMI and recorded on YouTube I will share them with you on this blog.

I am excited to share these songs because I believe that if you are having a tough day and you then listen to these songs, I am hoping the lyrics will connect with you in some way and uplift your spirits.  We all need a little morale boost now and again and I feel the essence of these two songs is all about that.

Make today be a “YES YOU CAN” day for you because “YOU ARE THE KEY” to turning your life around for the better.

Wishing you a day filled with happiness and joy, love Clarabelle.

Welcome to this month’s Guest Blogger post from Amy Rew. ¬†Amy is an inspiring business woman and wonderful friend of mine, she also has a special talent for writing poetry from the heart. ¬†I am sure you will agree her creative writing is indeed a beautiful work of art. ¬†Also, Happy Birthday today Amy, wishing you a beautiful day.

After working with a number of clients recently who wanted to overcome challenges that were essentially related to past experiences that had resulted in limiting belief patterns and self abandonment, Amy felt inspired to write the following poem along the lines of facing ones fears and realising that we are our own best friend.

Best Friend

I’ll stay with you now
I won’t leave your side
Nowhere to run
Nothing to hide
Catching the moment
Slowing down time
I’m all alone
These emotions are mine
Drying the river
Turning the tide
Breaking the chains
So these worlds can collide
As we hold on so tightly
To illusions gone by
But Live for today
With no worry or sigh
Stay with me now
Cause there’s nowhere to go
Play the best friend, lover or foe
Jester magician
With all tricks of the trade
Hold on to him tightly
till he starts to fade
Oh mirror mirror
what do you show
I see what I want
I don’t know if you know
Make an impression
lets make it the last
Tie to the sail
And stick to the mast
The question’s the answer
The start is the end
You won’t fool yourself
But it’s fun to pretend
Stay in your shoes
Don’t leave your canoe
Create the next step
You know you can choose
Like ships on the ocean
Thieves in the night
Silent and strong
Set sail for the light

Copyright Amy Rew, June 2013

A very special thank you to Amy for sharing this beautiful and touching poem with us, I am very grateful that we got to share in its magic.  Love, Clarabelle

Space, what is it?

sunset

Sometimes you just need to give yourself a little space.  Space to be free of thinking, give space the space it needs to nourish your soul and help you grow.

Space, what is it?  Space is everything, let me explain in the following poem:

Space

Space is love and light from within,
Space is the Angels, letting you in.
Space is the nothingness, the gap of life,
Space is tranquility from trouble and strife.
Space is our heart, and all we desire,
Space is the oxygen, fueling the fire.
Space is empty, magic in the air,
Space is forever, lifting you there.
Space is the truth, feel it flow,
Space is special, this I know,
Space creates dreams, inside and out,
Space connects souls, walking about.
Create the space, to breathe in time,
Create the space, to feel divine.
Sometimes space, is all you need,
Space is the light, taking the lead.

Take Your First Flight

Take your first flight

I am waiting on a colleague to call me this morning and during this tranquil time before we speak I thought I would write a little poem, because I feel I haven’t shared a poem on here for a while. ¬†So here is what poured out of my being, it took less than 60 seconds to create, so I guess I must be connected to the right sources for this to happen – this is creative flow at its very best. ¬†I hope you enjoy, lots of love to you today, Clarabelle.

Take Your First Flight

The experience of life, will make you strong,
Your spirit will uplift you, to where you belong.
All is whole, truth and more,
Welcome the world, open the door.
A grateful heart, will always smile,
Magical moments, are felt for a while.
And as the curtain falls, and the audience moves on,
Stand there tall, for you have not gone.
Your soul is forever, it sparkles and shines,
Listen to, its beautiful chimes.
Take your frequency, as high as a kite
The Universe is waiting, take your first flight.

Divine Harmony

Divine Harmony by Clarabelle
Divine Harmony by Clarabelle

Explosive

I am a great believer that creativity and imagination are two of the key components to a happy and ¬†fulfilling life and when you combine this with truth, love, passion, inspiration and connectedness you get something that is really “explosive”, internally and externally. ¬†I am sure we have all experienced our dancing minds playing a “tug-of-war” with our heart-strings – lately I have been letting my heart win and my inner spirit is running joyously free.

Creative Mode

Moving out of competitive mode and into creative mode has lifted my being to another level and I feel truly liberated. ¬†This transition has led me to create the beginnings of my first ever music album, entitled “Divine Harmony”, a compilation of inspirational music that talks to your soul, sings to your heart and connects with your mind in a magnetic manner. ¬†I have now produced 8 musical tracks so far, let me tell you a little bit about each one:

Track 1: ¬†“Running Free” – This musical piece tells the story of “returning to your soul”, it takes you through a journey of life experiences that have went from deep sadness and loss to letting go, breaking free and arriving at who you really are. ¬†It is ultimately upbeat and uplifting.

Track 2: ¬†“Hearts Apart” – I wrote this musical piece based on some recent news that my Sister, Brother-in-Law, Nephew and Nieces are all emigrating to Mississippi next month. ¬†This musical compilation tells of the heart-warming story of my deep love for them as they travel on their own journey of happiness and adventure.

Track 3: ¬†“Moving On” – This creative piece is ultimately about love – being, doing and having love. ¬†It is about letting go of past loves and opening your heart to new loves now and in the future. ¬†It is a very moving and touching musical story and I had someone special in mind when writing this musical piece.

Track 4: ¬†“Inspiring Hearts” – This track is a part of who I am, it shares the story of my passion and desire to inspire hearts all over the world. ¬†The music aims to connect with ones soul and deeply move them in an inspirational and motivational way.

Track 5: ¬†“Flight of the Blue Butterfly” – This musical composition tells the story of the stages of healing towards ultimate freedom of heart, soul, mind and spirit. ¬†The blue butterfly is very significant for me and you can see it pictured as part of my Clarabelle logo. ¬† This harmonious musical piece aims to move you in a peaceful and spiritual way.

Track 6: ¬†“Happiness Now” – This track is a musical compilation of what it sounds like to me to experience happiness in each and every moment. ¬†It will help you to open up your heart to the whispers of your soul and see and feel the beauty in each precious moment of life. ¬†Beauty is all around us and this track is a unique representation of that.

Track 7: ¬†“Coming Home” – This musical piece tells the story of my self-journey to being at one with oneself. ¬†It shares the realisation that the answers were always there, from within. ¬† ¬†It is a musical expression of who I am and all I ever need to be. ¬†In this artistic creation, “I have arrived”.

Track 8: ¬†“I Am” – This track is a musical celebration of the soul, the artistic expression of knowing that I always knew and trusting the feelings from within. ¬†It is an uplifting and moving musical piece that will surely touch your inner being.

Clarabelle “Divine Harmony”

There will be 13 tracks in total on the album and I aim to have it fully completed by 6 May 2013.  The album will be registered and uploaded to iTunes for immediate purchase.  I will also have it available to purchase in CD format.  Purchase price is £5.00.

If you would like to pre-order a copy of this inspirational masterpiece by Clarabelle, please note your interest below in the comments section or send me an email to claire@murraypeople.com

I am so excited about sharing the album with you, I have a real belief and faith that it will inspire you on the path to “Divine Harmony“.

Lots of love to you today, tomorrow and always,  Clarabelle.

What makes you tick?

Welcome to my newly monthly post, where I will post a question for you to answer (I will share my answer with you too). ¬†You may not wish to answer straight away, you may wish to contemplate the question for a few minutes/hours/days or even a couple of weeks. ¬†You don’t even need to post the answer on here, but it would be nice if you would and share your answers with others. ¬†So here is your question for March 2013:

What makes you tick?
What makes you tick?

What makes you tick?

Here is my answer:

Creating meaningful poetry from my heart and soul and sharing it with you. 

Whispers in her Soul

“Dreams build momentum as faith grows inside. ¬†Believe in yourself, believe it, have pride.” (Clarabelle) ¬†

When the time feels right and you’ve held onto your dreams for long enough, you will know when it is time to let go, to free your soul and release your dreams to the world. ¬†The heart will speak, the universe will give you signs, then you will know, you will just feel it and know. ¬†Dream it, Do it. ¬†Go forth in the direction of your dreams. ¬†Love Clarabelle.

Whispers in her Soul
Whispers in her Soul

Whispers in her Soul

She wakes up every day, with a song in her heart;

Her Vision is so strong, sweet music – the missing part.

Like a jigsaw puzzle, being pieced together;

Her motivation is high, no matter the weather.

For in the purpose of her heart, there lies the key;

A bright flame is burning, mesmerizing she.

She knows her faith, is stronger than ever;

She believes in herself, deeper than the river.

She swims against the current, going her own way;

Touching hearts, each and every day.

Her music is silent, it whispers in her soul;

One day she will empty it, making her whole.

The dream is building, time is nearly here;

Nothing is in her way, not even one fear.

Embrace yourself world, get ready to listen;

For when her sound is heard, the universe will glisten.

Your Soul is Beautiful

I love inspirational quotes, below is an inspirational quote created by me for YOU….because, your soul is truly beautiful!! ¬†Much love to you today, Clarabelle.

Inspirational Quote
Your Soul is Beautiful

 

“Your soul is beautiful,

let it radiate warmth

and melt worries away.”

(Clarabelle)

Follow Your Heart

It’s Okay To Feel Vulnerable

One of my coping mechanisms for releasing frustrations is to write poetry from my heart and soul. ¬†This next poem was created at a time when I was feeling a little stressed out and frustrated with myself and I know we’ve all been there, sometimes too often!! ¬†The purpose of me sharing this with you is because I feel through my own creative self-expression, there is much encouragement, support and positivity shining through, which may help you if you’re going through a similar experience right now. ¬†I want you to know that it is okay to feel vulnerable at times, actually, I believe now that showing vulnerability is often a real strength of integrity and authenticity. ¬†Give yourself permission to be who you really are, silence the overwhelmed mind and follow your heart. ¬†May you take comfort and courage from the following verse. ¬†Much love to you, Clarabelle.

Follow Your Heart
Follow Your Heart

Follow Your Heart

I feel frustrated, but no one knows;

How up and down I feel, but on the inside it shows.

So I take a time out, it’s time to express;

These random thoughts, are a bit of a mess.

But my mind feels strong, I prepared for it well;

The stresses keep coming, but I’m not in hell.

There is one part in balance, so I never fall;

Even though the ground is shaky, I’m walking tall.

I believe that this, pain will go;

I’ve built up an inner resistance, no matter what life does throw.

It’s teaching me something, and breaking old rules;

Changing me for the better, giving me new tools.

So I can mend, myself for good;

Uplifting my spirits, brightening my mood.

So when life gets you down, as it sometimes will;

You can create the way out – minus the pill.

Shine from within, follow your heart;

Your new life is waiting, soon you’ll never be apart.

Keep a Strong Mind

Life Throws Us Many Challenges

Life throws us many challenges and sometimes just when you think you’ve got a little closer to the mountain top, darkness falls and fears and frustrations kick in. ¬†No one said life was ever going to be easy, but we must remember there are many things in life to be grateful for right now. ¬†Having an attitude of gratitude will become your inner torch, and will fill up your soul with an abundance of love and light. ¬†This next poem was written by me, during a challenging time in my life and my self expression through my poetry, at times, was my saving grace. ¬†I now share this with you in the hope that it will help you in some way to move forward regardless of the barriers that are in your way. ¬†Much love to you today and always, Clarabelle.

Keep a Strong Mind

Too many things, so much to do;

One day feeling bright, the other feeling blue.

At this age now, I look life in the eyes;

Where am I going? ¬†Where’s the surprise?

It’s gone a bit stale, I feel the dust;

I need to take action, this is a must.

The mountain is high, and the weather is bleak;

I must keep a strong mind, even though I feel weak.

Trudge, trudge, every step up the hill;

Moves me closer, this dream I will fulfill.

To escape in my imagination, makes me feel free;

It uplifts my spirits, like the wind’s carrying me.

For I come alive, when I write through my soul;

It opens the straight jacket, and fills up the black hole.

There are no boundaries, no pain my way;

The creativity is flowing, I’m listening to what I say.

It feels like magic, the words they come fast;

Meaningful moments, inspiration that lasts.

This feels easy, as I explore deep inside;

The experiences I hold, come in like the tide.

This I must do, it’s where I feel best;

Forget the distractions and let my mind just rest.

For here I find peace, just the silence and me;

My world is not empty, when I just be.

Painting with Words

I love creativity, I love imagination, I love self-expression, I love painting with words. I feel this is where I belong, it feels like home to me, I feel I’m connected to another source when all of these come together and I know I am not the only one who feels this way when in artistic mode. ¬†This next poem in inspired by that. ¬†I wish for you a day where you do things that you love. ¬†Much love to you, as always, Clarabelle.

Painting with Words

I write these words, there’s no stopping me;

Late at night, the moon shines on what is to be.

It fills up my senses, with pure delight;

Awakens my spirit, all through the night.

There’s no escaping, the beauty of this soul;

It flows so abundantly, fills up the black hole.

Painting with words, is like treasure in my hand;

A princess of all princesses, welcome to my land.

The Child in me Smiles

Sometimes when I’m writing, random thoughts and words come to mind and I just jot down what flows from me at that time. ¬†Sometimes it doesn’t really make sense to me at that moment but then afterwards I feel the message that is coming through. This next poem is created from that, full of random words with meaningful impact. ¬†I wish for you a day filled with meaningful actions towards your purpose. ¬†Lots of love Clarabelle.

The Child in me Smiles

The Child in me Smiles

The hand that writes,

the pen that sings,

words of beauty,

mystical things.

Line after line,

like motion in the ocean,

Sand in between my toes,

I love your potion.

All is magical,

I’m under your spell,

The stars call out to me,

above the wishing well.

And at the core of it all,

the child in me smiles;

A special connection,

on the golden miles.

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.

Love is . . . .

I’ve been feeling alot of love in the air recently, it’s everywhere around me, it’s abundant, I know I don’t need to search for it, it is always there and you have it within and around you too. ¬†In the silence of my heart I drew a picture of love, which then led me on to writing this next poem about love, and I share it with you today. ¬†Much love to you Clarabelle.

love is
love is

 Love is . . . . .

Love is the fresh air, on my face,

Love is the energy, in this place.

Love can move mountains, travel in time,

Love is a symbol, that’s truly sublime.

***

Love is creation, with all your heart,

Love’s bond is unique, and can’t be broken apart.

Love is truth, and calmness in sea,

Love stops wars, and frustrations in me.

***

Love is free-flowing, and beauty at its best,

Love is mother-nature, putting us to test.

Love is the stars, moon and the sun,

Love is where we belong, love is everyone.

***

Love is me, and love is you,

Love is wholesome, and vibrates in all you do.

Love is the answer, love is the song,

Love just “is”, and has no right or wrong.

***

Love is the journey, and the destination in one,

Love is magnetic, love is pure fun.

Love is in your eyes, and in your precious smile,

Love is your radiance, shining mile after after.

***

Love is joy, and peace from within,

Love is happiness, and the air you breathe in.

Love is the universe, the future of time,

Love is abundant, love is divine.

Happiness, Happiness

Today (2nd August 2012) I finished reading the book, “The Ultimate Happiness Prescription” by Deepak Chopra, in which it gives you 7 keys to joy and enlightenment. ¬†I found this book to be extremely fascinating and truly ‘mind-expanding’ on a much deeper and more personal level. ¬†I just love this quote from the book, “If you focus on the present, your life will be constantly renewed”, this for me is such a refreshing thought. ¬†This next poem is inspired by happiness. ¬†May your day be filled with an abundance of happiness. ¬†Love Clarabelle

Happiness, Happiness

Happiness, happiness, where are you?

It’s a gift of the present, the awareness of what you do

The path to enlightenment, is right at your feet

You stand in its doorway, and breathe its heartbeat

See the world in yourself, you create what is here

Not in the past or future, happiness now is so clear

Make it your goal, to give each moment a smile

Your spirit comes alive, when you are still for a while
