Best Ever Self Prayer

Clarabelle Quotes, Beautiful Dreams Amongst Nature

True Self

I honestly did think about NOT sharing this article with you but then I thought, “it’s my online magazine and I want to be true and authentic to myself”, so that is why I am sharing it.

I would say that I am more of spiritual person these days than deeply religious but I do love to pray everyday.  I know prayer isn’t for everyone but I really do believe in the power of prayer. I have the deepest faith and belief that all my prayers are answered, I really do believe that and I have strong evidence of that since I was a child.

God Mother

My God Mother, Bella, who passed away many years ago, always had the deepest faith in the power of prayer and I guess she passed that on to me, it is only now when I am reflecting on it, I really believe she did, in such a positive way.

I remember when I was a child my Aunt Bella gave me this prayer to read at night, it was a prayer to give me the strength and confidence to do well in my education and studies, I remember I said that prayer every night for years and years, never a night went by without me saying that prayer – I know that prayer helped me do really well at School and University.

New Prayer

I created a new prayer this evening, I was doing my housework earlier and listening to some inspirational videos on YouTube and I just thought to myself, “I want to create a meaningful and heartfelt prayer to say everyday”.  This prayer is quite personal to me and I know this prayer will definitely be answered, maybe you will want to say it too, or indeed make up your own special personal prayer.

Prayer In My Heart

So I share this prayer with you today, I feel this prayer in my heart, I feel it.  I hope you connect with it in some way and if you are supportive of the power of prayer then please feel free to use it and share it with others.

PS. I love you Aunt Bella and I miss your laugh and happy spirit and I know my Mum does too.  

Best Ever Self Prayer

Dear God,

Thank you for listening to me and thank you for answering this prayer.

I have deep faith in the positive changes that are currently happening to me.

I have true belief in the power of this prayer and the knowing that I am achieving everything that my heart desires.

Thank you for my heart’s beauty, perfect health, amazing wealth and for giving me the happiest spirit and soul.

I feel very blessed and so grateful for all that I am and for all that I am becoming.

I say this prayer to you today, to offer you my deepest gratitude for helping me to truly help myself turn my life around for the better and for me becoming my Best Ever Self. 

Thank you Dear God for answering my prayer today and always.

An Easy Choice

Clarabelle Photography and Quotes, The light is love

Words that Inspire

Words that inspire, words that speak truth, words from the heart shared with you today. Our journey’s have crossed and our souls are connected and I do hope you are doing what you love today, I know I am and I’m sharing that with YOU.  Have a beautiful day, Clarabelle.

An Easy Choice

I always believed, I always knew
I had neverending faith, this was true

I gave hope a chance, to live in me
I counted my blessings, it set me free

To escape in the moment, do what I love
Creates inner peace, a connection to above

Words that inspire, warming the heart
In this jigsaw of life, it was the last part

To share my soul, to give it a voice
An inner calling, an easy choice

And now you read and now you listen
Our journey’s have crossed, dreams do glisten

I give you the key, to unlock my soul
Precious and light, making me whole

Calm the distraction, bathe in the joy
Trust your intuition, it’s your miracle toy.

Discover Your Gift

right path

Personal Insights

I want to share some personal insights I have gained from the latest book I am reading, it is called “Discover the Gift” by Demian Lichtenstein and Shajen Joy Aziz.  I love this book, I love it because it is providing me with evidence that I am on the right path – I know I am, and I also know that I should be sharing this post with you today, because it feels right, I have a calling to share it with you so YOU will benefit too.  I guess then if you are reading this post, you were meant to read it, there is a message in here for you, reflect on the message, feel it in your heart and do what you need to do, do the right thing for you.

The book if full of wisdom, the words connect with my heart and soul.  Let me share with you some questions the book asks the reader in relation to discovering your gift, this section was called “Finding Your Assets”, I will also share my own responses with you….so here goes:

What does my source say?
Love with all your heart, show love, do love, be love. 

What am I meant to do?
Sing like an Angel, write beautiful songs that touch hearts, inspire souls, awaken happy spirits and ignite passion inside others.

What is working for me in my life right now?
Running free, blogging, singing, dancing, music, reading, friends, loving, letting go, sharing, expressing, coaching, understanding, empathy, caring, smiling, meeting, positive communication, giving love, care and attention, reflecting, being brave, listening to my heart, believing my intuition, doing what feels rights, having peace from within, staying calm, being transparent, being me, being forever grateful, being happy now.

If I could do anything I want as a career, and money was not an object, what would I choose to do? 
Singer/Songwriter, Author, Writing Inspirational Books, Sharing my story, Autobiography, Doing Gigs/Concerts, Blogging, Winning Euro-Vision, Red Carpet Awards, Coaching, having fun, laughter, love, joy and peace in my heart everyday.     

Happiness

I have happiness dancing inside of me, I know I am on the right path, because I am doing a lot of the above and I am currently making plans to make them all happen.  This isn’t about me, it is about discovering a gift that is meant to be shared with the world, this gift will raise the vibrations of other people, it will have such a positive impact on them and like a domino effect will touch other hearts…..it will be paid forward every single time, it will be continuous positive energy, growing and growing and growing across the Universe, such goodness will come from this, the positive impact is so powerful indeed.

I will share with you the final few sentences from this section in the book:

“We can certainly hold on to whatever it is we think is precious about ourselves, but that’s not how we grow.  If you want to see your world blossom in front of you, find a way to give your assets away.  It’s an investment in your future.”

I want you to take time to reflect on the above questions for you, really think about the real message that is coming through for you.  Now go on and just be you.

Lots of love to you today,  Clarabelle

Peace in her Heart

peace in her heart

I have a lovely feeling of peace and contentment flowing through my body this morning, I am aware of it and treasure it right now.  I just had to write, here is what came out.  I hope you enjoy.  May your happy spirit touch other hearts today.  Love Clarabelle

Peace in her Heart

She woke up, with peace in her heart today
No inner battles, in her way
The fight has gone, war no more
Everything leads, to the fulfilment door
Now it’s different, now she can see
That an opened heart, will let this be
She knows that her gift, travels afar
She knows that her energy, raises the bar
And as the soft wind blows, contentment plays a tune
Happiness in the air, goodnight Mr Moon
This misty morning, is full of white
She feels its presence, she is the light
Her breath is silent, and simply pure
Because she is so certain, she is so sure
That all her dreams, are alive inside
The vision is here, nothing to hide
For her soul is connected, dancing free
Her spirit is full, of happy energy
But who is, this miracle she?
She can be “he” and she is “me”

Birthday Wishes

Clarabelle & Friends
Clarabelle & Friends

I celebrated by 40th birthday in Edinburgh this weekend and I had a lovely time with my bestest friends.  It got me thinking about birthday wishes.  What is a wish really and does it hold more depth of meaning on your birthday?.….You know, that moment of precious thought and hope just before you blow the birthday candles out, in the photo below, I was thinking of that….that special birthday wish, the secrets of my soul, the desires of my heart and all that.  What did I wish for?  Well, it has always been tradition to not share your birthday wish with anyone, because if you did then it might not come true.

My birthday wish this year was very general, not too specific but something I feel is also really achievable.  I will stick to tradition and not share it….just yet, actually, now that I think about it, in that very moment captured in this photograph below I believe I have it….yes, indeed I do truly have it – I wonder if you can guess what it is?  I wonder if it actually shows, can you see, can you feel it, can you tell I already have it?

Three Little Angels

Three Little Angels

The brain loves stories, here is a little inspirational poetic story for you, I hope you connect with its positive vibe. Much love to you today, Clarabelle.

Three Little Angels

I walked to the rainbow’s edge
This was a dream come true
Three little Angels sat on a ledge
Singing, “Whatever you want, you can do”

I thought to myself, is this for real
Stunned in amazement, happiness I feel
I am blessed, with the greatest treasure
I said to the Angels, it is my pleasure

I thought for a moment, about what they said
Random thoughts went through my head
“Whatever I want, I can do”
Surely this is a dream come true

How do I do it?, I asked all three
What is the answer?, What can it be?
The Angels smiled and their eyes did glisten
I said, please tell me Angels, I will listen

They gently whispered into my ear
My precious child, you are here
You are the dream, you are the mission
You are your life, you don’t need permission

You can choose, you can decide
Let your beautiful heart, be your guide
Create the space, free up your mind
Your inner glow, is one of a kind

You are true, you are wise
Your passionate heart, never lies
It is honest, all of the time
It will beat, without rhythm or rhyme
Because is always knows, what’s best for you
Trust that your talents will always shine through

Oh little Angels, what names are you given?
My name is “Faith” I am always in you living
My name is “Believe” I am always by your side
My name is “Magic” and in you I reside

If this is true, I would have seen you before
I didn’t see you, when darkness was at my door
My dearest friend, we were always there
Holding your hands, feeling your prayer

Our light you did not see, because you didn’t know
That you always, had this inner glow
The midnight sky, is so vast and black
Yet stars appear and light comes back

You have that power, you are so bright
You are the magic, every single night
When the sun goes down and darkness falls
You sparkle in this universe, through all the walls

We are here because of you
Your happiness now, let us through
We share this story, so you can tell
All your friends about this magical spell

It protects your spirit, like a rainbow of love
Showering you with energy, sent from above
When you wake up in the morning, you will know
Faith, Believe and Magic, Three Little Angels in a row

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

Question of the Month – June 2013

Beaches

Welcome to this month’s question.   Every month I ask you a question to reflect upon and answer for yourself, I also share my own answer with you.

I have just returned from a lovely and fun filled holiday with 9 of my childhood friends, it was a bachelorette (hen) party holiday for my wonderful friend Michelle who gets married in 2 weeks time.

Whilst there I came across this wonderful little cafe called ‘Passion for Life’, I love it because its menu is full of organic, healthy, natural wholefoods and I fell in love with their ‘After Eight’ healthy protein shake…..yummy.  The cafe was such a lovely environment to sit in, because it has little inspirational pictures and photographs displayed on its walls.  The reason I am sharing this is because it has a “Question of the Day Chalk Board” and I took a photograph of the board so I could use their question to share with you today.

Question:  “When was the last time, you did something for the first time?”

Question of the day
Question of the Day

My answer:  Lately I have being doing a lot of things for the first time so I will share with you  one of the things I did this morning for the first time.  I am really big on gratitude at the moment, I am so very grateful for everything I have in my life right now, I really am.  I have just started reading the book, “The Magic” by Rhonda Byrne, I love this book because it helps you to deliberately focus on what you are truly grateful for each day and night. Today, for this first time, I did practical exercise for day 1, which was to, “count my blessings”, I had to write down 10 of them and the reason why, honestly it felt so good to do this.

I will leave you with that Question for the month of June and maybe you will also want to count your blessings too, it really will make you feel so good.

Thank you for reading my posts, I really do treasure you being here, I have been reflecting a lot whilst being away on holiday and I have some truly amazing posts to follow very soon.

Much love to you today as always and thank you from the core of my heart, Clarabelle.

I Feel Change

I Feel Change

I feel there is change in the air and I mean fresh, purposeful, meaningful and positive change for me – I just feel it, I know it is coming, I know it and I can almost touch it!!

Where does this clear vision of change come from for me?

It comes from being on a spiritual journey, a path of natural healing, having faith and self belief, building momentum and having deep trust in the process.

How did this happen?

I made it happen, I wanted it to happen, I changed my daily habits, I changed my thinking, I worked on making me a better me, I opened my mind to a different kind of knowledge, I applied new learnings, I let my heart share its secrets and I have returned back to me, the true me that was always there but I had to find my own way of discovering it again and I did.

New Dreams

I now have new dreams, new plans, the deepest self love, genuine confidence in my unlimited potential and the courage to take on every challenge that dares to get in my way.  I am thankful for everything, my attitude of gratitude burns passionately in my soul and I feel inspired by the power of the universe to which I am in full alignment.

Yes YOU

I want to share something with all my blog followers and visitors, you have truly helped me, because you give me positive feedback and I know that I am making a difference, inspiring hearts and it has empowered me even more.  I am grateful for YOU, yes YOU reading this right now, I am so thankful for YOU and I am very blessed to have you in my life.

Embrace the Fullness of Life

I want you to feel in your heart right now the changes you want to make for yourself, see yourself in that place, envisage what it looks like right now when that change has happened for you.  Embrace the fullness of life living in that positive change, see the sun shining down upon you and feel the warmth of your awakened spirit flow through every cell of your body. Breathe in the magic of it all and dance to the happiness of the beautiful vibe surrounding you.  Now here comes a very important part –  draw it, photograph it, write it down, sing it, dance it…..create it – for everything is created twice, first in your imagination and then with your doing.  Let personal action be your best friend and hold hands together as you skip towards the fruits of your labour.  I know you are smiling now, I know you know you can make it happen for you, do something now that will move you closer to your goal.

I feel change, can you?

Much love to you today, Clarabelle

Prayer for the Loss of a Loved One

When someone close to us dies, often prayer can help us to see through each day until we become strong again and are ready to face the world.  I wrote this prayer after hearing about the loss of a friend’s loved one, I hope its sentiment brings strength to anyone who is going through this deep sadness at this time in their life.  Love to you Clarabelle.

Prayer for the Loss of a Loved One

Let their happy loving spirit, shine and guide us here on earth.

I pray that my close family and friends, remain strong for each other.

May we continue to be blessed with your loving presence, every moment of every day.
