I love this quote below and it rings true for me at the moment…..seize the opportunity!!
You deserve the best in life, you deserve to have everything you have ever wanted and I definitely believe that is so possible. This next poem below was created by me after I completed my Vision Wall, way back in 2012. If you want to know more about how to create your very own Vision Wall to empower you to make positive changes in your life, then please click on this link: https://clarabelle.org/personal-development/vision-wall/
I can honestly the words in this poem “The New Me” definitely ring true for me and I am happy to say that I feel that I am “The New Me” – not a different person but just more of who I really am…..I suppose you could say I have come home. I do hope you enjoy it and thinking ahead to the New Year, creating your very own Vision Wall might just give you the push that you need to turn your dreams into reality.
The New Me
I searched for,
the new me,
My treasure trove,
revealed it to be.
A vision of faith,
I believe in it all,
on my vision wall.
It focuses on,
the inside out,
The language is powerful,
I hear it shout.
Go on, stand out
from the crowd,
Make a positive start,
feel very proud.
So I welcome you,
to try it one day,
Create your vision
and go your own way.

Do one thing today that makes you happy, I mean something you haven’t done for a while, something that you’ve missed doing, something that you enjoy doing. Today make some time to do that. Often we get so caught up in our busy lives we forget the special ‘me‘ time that we all deserve. Just for today do that one thing that makes you happy – I know you will be glad you did.
Much love to you today, Clarabelle
As some of you may already know I have my own Professional Coaching Business, Murray People International Coaching, www.murraypeople.com. I set up the business in 2008 after a wonderful career as a Human Resource Professional and now nearly 5 years later, it is still growing strong…I love coaching. I mainly coach Senior Executives in Global Companies but I also do private one to one Career and Life Coaching, I am fully certified as a Professional Coach. I really love working with people and seeing them achieve their goals in life. I deliberately make a real effort to continually develop myself everyday so that I can use my learning in my one to one sessions with my clients, I know the better that I can become, then the better I will work with them, and the better they will become and get the results they want. Every new coaching tool I learn for clients, I also apply to myself, this helps me to personally evolve and increases my self-awareness. So lately I have been asking myself my own questions about my life, here is the question I asked myself recently:
What do you want your life to be/look like one year from now?
So, of course, I went to work and I looked at each area of my life and in great detail wrote down what I specifically want my life to be and look like one year from now. I absolutely loved this process. I looked at the following areas:
Three pages later and I had a wonderful vision of where I WILL be one year from now because I believe that will happen for me, because I WILL make it happen for me. I have a very good track record, I was thinking of goals I have set myself in the past and fully committed to and I can honestly say I have achieved every single one of them, so this gives me an abundance of self-confidence going forward.
What About YOU?
If you want to make positive changes in your life, I would totally recommend that you sit down quietly with a notepad and pen or type on your computer/iPad and answer that question for yourself:
What do YOU want YOUR life to be/look like one year from now?
What you do after that is your choice, I read my list every morning, so I can get my specific goals embedded into my heart, mind and soul and this helps me to become super focused in achieving that for myself, sometimes without even trying. You see it is like programming my brain to focus on achieving that for myself, so my everyday choices and decisions are in support of those life goals. I am super focused, laser focused, fully committed and fully passionate about making these goals happen for me. I want the same for YOU, I want you to have a better life, I want you to have everything that you have ever wanted, I want the BEST for YOU, I truly and honestly do. It’s your life, GO GET IT!! (I think I may make that my new slogan!!)
May every thought that you think today, be in support of a better you and a better life for you, lots of love, as always, Clarabelle.
I have a lot of gratitude bursting inside of me right now, I know it was always there but I didn’t always show it. I know I am walking the path of gratitude, I am growing and becoming a better person every day but I want to continue to develop all of this in a natural and very genuine way, it must not be forced.
What a Feeling
Yesterday, I was with a client and he shared with me a “Mood Lift Chart”.….WOW, I just loved this. The chart scale goes from a score of minus 9 which represents a depressed mood to plus 9 which represents gratitude. When I looked at this chart I instantly smiled because I knew at that moment in time I was in a grateful mood, the top of the chart – what a feeling!!
I was filled with gratitude most of the day yesterday, I reached out to people I know, because I wanted to thank them for being in my life right now. I just know that those simple words of “thank you” meant so much to me and the person receiving them.
A simple thank you goes a long long way, who do you want to thank today for being in your life right now? Go on, reach out to them, say those beautiful words with meaning and purpose and you will be camping at the top of the “Mood Lift Chart”.
Thank you, thank you, thank YOU for reading this blog post, thank you, thank you, thank you for your support, encouragement and comments. Thank YOU.
Lots of love to you to today, Clarabelle
I set myself high standards because I want to be the best that I can be. I want to become a better person every day, sometimes I get this right, sometimes I don’t, but as long as I learn from it and apply the learning going forward, I know I will progress.
I don’t strive to be perfect, what is perfect anyway? To me the closest thing to perfect is in the imperfections, that I feel is our uniqueness. I don’t want to be like anybody else, I just want to be me, I like being me and I honestly wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today, I want you to embrace in the fullness of this life, the wonderful person that is YOU, everything about you is special, believe you are the miracle of all miracles. Believe in YOU, in all that you do, let your spirit fly and let your imagination free your soul into the Universe. This energy will take shape and form into something that may be beyond your belief right now but I want you to have faith and hold onto that vision because you are a magnet for it and it’s making its way to YOU.
Much love to you today, Clarabelle
Over the last year or so I have had an increasing desire to buy items that are the colour red, below is a list of some ‘red’ items I have purchased recently:
And the list goes on and on……………
Before that I had the desire to purchase items azure blue for e.g.
And the list goes on…….
I originally didn’t really think that any of the above had any real significance to anything but after I had a meaningful conversation with someone about it, I now realise there is a very strong connection to the colours I am attracting into my life and what this actually means.
A couple of weeks ago I was Chairing a Board meeting and before the meeting started I shared my desire for buying red with one of the newest Board members, John, who is a Reiki Master/Teacher (www.scottishreiki.co.uk). I said to John, “I just can’t stop buy red”, as I stood there proudly wearing my red trench coat.
John explained to me how my buying of red relates to the different colours of the Chakras and he continued to explain to me what each colour meant. John expressed that my desire for red is a good thing and to continue to do what I am doing in terms of my own personal growth. The Red Chakra relates to these positive traits:
“Red relates to self awareness. It is the area of survival and stability and your place on this earth. The colour red provides the power from the earth and gives energy on all levels. It connects us to our physical body. Everything that is to be commenced needs the life vitality of red.” Extract from www.threeheartscompany.com
I then looked up the meaning of Blue in relation to the Chakras. Blue is in relation to the Throat, the ability to verbalise and expressing truth through the power of the spoken word. “Blue is the colour of the spirit and relates to self expression – speech, communication, the ability to communicate our needs and requirements; Spirit of truth and purpose. This is a mentally-relaxing colour. Connects us to holistic thought, and gives us wisdom and clarity enhancing communication and speech.” Extract from www.threeheartscompany.com
I totally found this a fascinating connection with me starting up of this blog, expressing myself through lots and lots of poetry and songwriting. I remember I had such strong desire for buying items of the colour blue at that time.
You may also remember a reblog I posted on here a couple of weeks ago, I was a Guest Blogger for the wonderful blog Cherry Positive and shared some life lessons on there, here is a link to it http://cherrypositive.com/2013/05/03/10-life-lessons-by-clarabelle/
The significance here is that Aviral Kulshreshtha introduced my blog with a very interesting take on what he called my ‘red‘ photo. Here is an extract from that very blog post and Aviral’s introduction:
“Being a Science student, I always learned, ‘Red color has the highest wavelength’.’ The highest wavelength has the highest energy. This energy reflects from red colored pic, who inspired me at every bit of seconds and I truly feel lucky to have her on my ship of Life: Clarabelle. Clarabelle means Bright. As I said, red color is the brightest color which reflects from her poetic heart and beautiful mind.”
Wow, I just feel the significance of the above expressions from both John and Aviral relate so much to me attracting the colour red into my life (and blue the year before that) – I believe this is in relation to the frequency of the vibration I am on. High energy attracts high energy, thus my desire for the colour red.
I could be completely wrong here and it would be interesting to hear other thoughts on this, I am always open to new learnings.
What colour are you attracting into your life right now? What colour do you have a current desire for?
At the moment mine is vibrant ‘red‘ and I’m indeed “REaDy for Action”!!
Wishing you a colourful day today, full of many beautiful rainbow moments.
Much love to you, Clarabelle
A Question for You to Ponder
Welcome to my monthly post, where I post a question for you to answer (I will share my answer with you too).
