Starry light.
Frosty moon,

Faith and knowing.
Smiling heart,
Forever glowing.

Champion Heart

Remember this, you have a champion heart, yes you, I feel its strength, I see its purpose and it’s ready to take on the world. Here’s a poem for you, just about that:

Your Champion Heart

Your champion heart,
Is beautiful to see.
So special and true,
A passion to free.

It’s bursting with pride,
With a forever smile,
Stronger than an ox,
Mile after mile.

No matter the path,
That you are on,
Your willing attitude,
Is where you belong.

So hold on tight,
Because excitement is ready.
To lift you higher,
Go rock steady.

A winning love,
A happy ever after.
You are the one,
Sing out with laughter.

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

Be In Love

Be in love everyday with your story of life. Be in love with each moment that you experience. Be in love with the beauty of nature around you and be in love with yourself. Fill your blank page with love today, put love into all that you do, then see and feel the difference to the outcomes you receive.

Love fully, love deeply and let love nourish every part of your body. Be in love with who you are, after all you deserve it.

Lots of love, Clarabelle

A Touch of Love

Be fearless

Spread a touch of love today, it will really make a difference to your day and to someone else’s day.  This could be anything from buying someone a cup of coffee, to making their dinner for them, or baking a cake for your neighbour.  A little bit of love goes a long long way and people will always remember how you made them feel and there is no better feeling than feeling loved and cared for.

Wishing you a lovely day wherever you are in the world.

Love, Clarabelle

Together Forever

Clarabelle Quotes  71

Together Forever

Just show me love,
And I’ll show you the way.
An unknown path,
But I’m here to stay.
A new world awaits,
Hope is where I live,
Fond sweet memories,
True kindness I give.
Share your heart,
Let me see it all,
Building a new life,
Where stars do fall.
And the sun shines on,
Like never before,
Take my hand,
Let’s go through the door.
I see the rainbow,
Its colours so bright,
Together forever,
You’ve shown me the light.

Hearts Will Dance

Clarabelle Photography and Quotes, The light is love

Some things are just meant to be and when all seems lost and the door seems locked, in walks love…..forever love.  May you find beauty, love and peace in the following verse.

Hearts Will Dance

And through the pain,
She awaits his heart.
Missing his love,
When he did depart.
She hears his voice,
Whisper in her soul.
She feels his spirit,
Making her whole.
In all this time,
In all the tears.
Words, “I love you”,
Unspoken for years.
It’s not too late,
Now there’s a chance.
To be together,
Both hearts will dance.
As she closes her eyes,
With a peaceful mind.
She knows he is waiting,
True love they did find.

Just before I start my days work, here is a poem of the heart for you:

A Poem of the Heart

A poem of the heart,
especially for you.
To make you feel loved,
so wonderful and true.
A poem from my soul,
lifting you up,
Raising your spirits,

A poem of truth,

This poem is for you,
and I wish you well.

Wishing you a very beautiful day today, share a piece of your heart.

I Love You

When the heart is happy

Three of the most powerful words that touch your soul like no other, that make your heart smile inside, that help you to believe that anything is possible and that give you hope for the future and peace in the now.  What are these words?….these words can only be:

“I Love You”

Say it out loud, right now, feel how those words feel, those are three of the most impactful words you will ever say to someone.  Those three little words can turn EVERYTHING around for the better.  “I Love You” said with true meaning and heart can raise a shattered soul from the gutter and uplift it so much that it will be dancing with the birds around the sun.

When was the last time you told someone you loved them?  I know you know they know it, but when did you actually look them in the eyes, hold their hands and say to them “I Love you”?

Do it today, do it for yourself and do it for them……make today an “I Love You” day.  I KNOW it will make you and the other person feel so good.

And…….to you, YOU, who faithfully drops by every day on this Clarabelle Blog, “I Love you”…for being here…I LOVE YOU.

Wishing you a loving day, wherever you are in the world.

Change is Good

Burning Ambition

Welcome Change

I know a lot of people don’t like change but personally I welcome change.  I thrive in new settings, new beginnings, meeting new people, learning new things, overcoming new challenges, working in new and changing environments, I love it all.  So I encourage you today, to think about what you would like to change in your life today, what little or large change could you make to your daily habits, your environment, your job, your relationships, that will enhance your skills, knowledge, experience or just make you that little bit happier and/or more content with you and your life.

Change is good, it will sometimes take you out of your comfort zone and into your learning zone.

Change is good, it can be refreshing and revigorating meeting new people and/or being in a new environment

Change is GOOD…….Change is GOOD.  🙂

Please remember, even a small change could make all the difference to your day, try a new fruit or putting fresh flowers in a dull room, it’s amazing how that can uplift your spirits.

I look forward to hearing about the changes you are making – mini or massive I know they will make a positive difference to your life.

Lots of love to you today, as always,

Clarabelle

 

 

 

To Veronica from Valerie

beach and birds

To a Very Special Friend

I was in a local charity shop yesterday and stumbled across this lovely little friendship book. On the inside of the book it says, “To Veronica from Valerie,” and I thought that was very cute.  I began reading some of the verses and poetry from within and the words really did touch my heart, I could relate to every verse.  There is one verse from Pam Brown which I especially connected with and it made me think of my friend right now, who is far away but I hope to see him very soon.

Far Away

In loneliness, in sickness, in confusion – the mere knowledge of friendship makes it possible to endure, even if the friend is powerless to help.  It is enough that they exist.  Friendship is not diminished by distance or time, by imprisonment or war, by suffering or silence.  It is in these things that it roots most deeply.  It is from these things that it flowers.  [Pam Brown, b. 1928]

I thought just so very beautiful and so very true.

Treasure your friends and let them know that you love them.

Lots of love, Clarabelle

Show Your Heart

Dubai Beaches

When you meet someone for the first time, show your heart.  When you are introduced to someone new, show your heart.  When you are welcomed by a stranger, show your heart.

Show your heart, show you care, show the real lovely and wonderful you and you will be so amazed at the abundance of warmth that comes back.

So my post today, is about showing your heart and people will not only see that but they will feel it too.

Lots of love to you today from Sunny Dubai,

Lost Love and Gain

Clarabelle Photography and Quotes, The light is love

Poetic Mood

I’m in a poetic mood this morning, I say this morning because I haven’t went to sleep yet and it’s way past 1am, so I figured a good time to write a blog post for you to read when you wake up.  What’s this poem about?  Well I don’t really know, these words just came to mind, they just flowed out of my heart for you.  Wishing you a beautiful day today, love to you Clarabelle.

Lost Love and Gain

And all this time,
through all the pain.
She looks behind,
lost love and gain.

Happy pictures,
saddened faces.
Missed moments,
empty places.

But in her heart,
a fire does burn.
A light of hope,
a freedom u-turn.

Her peaceful mind,
simmers in the sun.
Fresh air on her face.
her dreams have begun.

A Little Bit of Motivation

comfort zone quote

Motivation, Motivation, MOTIVATION

A little bit of motivation goes a long long way.  I love anything motivational and inspirational, so much so that I’ve got to get my daily fix.  I usually listen to 1-2 hours of motivational stuff when I wake up in the morning and then often listen to more throughout the day when I can.  Below is a list of just some of my favourite motivational and inspirational people:

  • Les Brown
  • Tony Robbins
  • Jim Rohn
  • Wayne Dyer
  • Abraham Hicks
  • Will Smith
  • Oprah Winfrey
  • Louise Hay
  • Rhonda Byrne
  • Ralph Smart
  • Burt Goldman
  • Deepak Chopra
  • Bill Crawford

Super Focused

This helps me to stay super focused on developing myself in order to achieve my goals and dreams in life.  This journey of life can mess with your heart and mind sometimes – if you let it, so I believe it’s always good to have a mechanism or process that works for you to get you “back on track”.

My original music and poetry comes from a peaceful place in my heart and soul and I would definitely say that “hanging around” everyday with the above inspirational people has certainly helped me to achieve that and believe in myself.

So get yourself on to YouTube today and check these guys out because I know if you listen to what they have to say it will inspire you for the rest of your life.

Keep going my friends…..keep going…..keep going….and be grateful for what you have along the way.

Thank YOU for being here.

Question of the Month

True Beauty

Answer this Question

A very warm and lovely welcome to this month’s question.  I hope you will get the chance to reflect and answer this question for yourself – my answer is also below.  I hope you’re having a fabulous start to February.  Lots of love Clarabelle.

Question:

What do you love doing, you know that one thing that really makes you smile, that really makes you happy…..who or what is it, I would love to know what lights you up inside?

My Answer:

Even this very question is making me smile inside because it is taking me to happy times. I am sure this will come as no surprise to you, but I really do love writing poetry from the heart and also writing songs.   What makes me even happier is knowing that these poems and songs are bringing joy to other people, that truly is the icing on the cake for me.  I have a vision that one day I will be standing on stage in front of a huge audience and they are singing along to my own songs.  I also have a beautiful vision of driving my car and one of my original songs are playing on the radio.  This my friends, I truly believe will happen…..I just believe that in my heart of hearts.

So I hope you really think about this question today and if you’re not doing what you love, make sure you give it your priority this month, because you truly deserve to be happy doing what you LOVE doing.

Thank you for being here.

Love Clarabelle

Heart with a View

Poem Mode

I’ve been back in poem mode recently and have written some deep thinking “look in the mirror” poems recently.  I wrote the one below, this evening, it’s entitled “Heart with a View”, I hope you like it.  Love, Clarabelle

Love heart

Heart with a View

You, yes you,
with the broken smile.
What’s your story,
on this rainbow mile?
Why do the tears,
run down your face.?
Why the sadness,
in a heartfelt place?
Invisible chains,
keep you stuck.
Thoughts of fears,
and “wish me luck”.
But just around the corner,
a harp plays for you,
Its melody so precious,
like a heart with a view.
Just one more step,
nudge forward a little more.
The pitter-patter of your feet,
reveals treasures to explore.
For this life is an adventure,
a colour one.
It offers you everything,
under the sun.
So feel these whispers,
as they talk to you.
The cloud is an angel,
guiding you through.

Loch Lomond Sky

A friend allowed me to share with you a stunning photo (below) he took of Loch Lomond, Scotland recently and it inspired me to write the poem about it below, I hope you like it. Thank you to Gerry Mitchell for allowing me to use his beautiful photo of Loch Lomond for this blog post. Lots of love to you all today Clarabelle

Loch Lomond Sky

Loch Lomond Sky

A bird flies high,
Beneath the Loch Lomond Sky.

With freedom in its wings,
The whispers of its soul sings.

A beautiful tranquil day,
Where shadows guide the way.

And reflections of white light,
Keep my heart bright.

As I stand here all alone,
Loch Lomond feels like home.

It takes my breath away.
Forever this moment will stay.

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 helping me to stay strong, patient, confident, creative, powerful, happy and forever abundant. 

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.

The Health of your Heart

Remember it’s happy,
always for you.

Give it fresh air,
it will blossom in the breeze.
Let its beat fill your body,
it will melt away the freeze.

Trust your intuition
let it flow in the sunshine,
Your healthy heart is so sacred
It’s quite simply sublime.

Your mind may be jam-packed with worries today but I want you to know that you can always be happy because there is always a happy place in your heart.  The heart will always win over a busy mind, if you let it.  So relax the mind today, even if it’s just for 15 minutes and take yourself to the core of your happiness…..I’ll meet you there 🙂 .  Love Clarabelle

A Happy Place

There’s a happy place, in your heart
It’s off the scale, off the chart

No one can see it, only you can feel
Feel its magic, it is so real

It’s always there, wanting to play
Wanting to smile and laugh each day

Wanting to give, and show kindness too
Bringing joy and great treasures to you

This happy place, has no door
It’s breathing true life, into your core

It keeps you well, it keeps you strong
This happy place, is your winning song

So close your eyes, relax to the sound
Your happy heartbeat, is truly profound

You Are The Key

Life is too short

Often we look for a solution to our problems “out there” however I am a great believer that you have the answer deep inside yourself.

“You Are The Key” is a song that I created a few weeks, although I do write a lot of love songs I also write a lot of uplifting and more inspiring songs too.  I hope you like this Youtube demo song and that it adds a little zest to your day (background music currently being produced).

Remember whatever you are going through in life just now “You Are The Key” to turning it all around for the better.  I have inserted the lyrics below also, so you can sing along if you wish.  Lots of love to you today, Clarabelle

YOU ARE THE KEY by Claire Marie Murray, a.k.a. Clarabelle 11 July 2013

Verse 1

Mr Inspirational believes in his dreams
Miss Influential, life is better than it seems
Mr Motivational has hunger in his soul
Mrs Positivity, always reaches her goal

Chorus

For you are the key
And this is your cue
know what you want,
Let it inspire you
Feel in your heart,
all the things you can do
For you are the key
And this is so true

Verse 2

Mr Happiness, smiles all the time
Miss Joyfulness, sings uplifting tunes in rhyme
Mr Success, nothing stops him now
Mrs Believer, knows she is wow

Chorus

For you are the key
And this is your cue
know what you want,
Let it inspire you
Feel in your heart,
all the things you can do
For you are the key
And this is so true

Bridge

Dream a bigger dream
Paradise waits for you
Be the cat with cream
There ain’t nothing you can do
Hold in your heart
Dance amidst the clouds
Uniqueness is your part
Don’t follow all the crowds

Chorus (to fade)

For you are the key
And this is your cue
know what you want,
Let it inspire you
Feel in your heart,
all the things you can do
For you are the key
And this is so true
Yes, you are the key
Believe that is true

Love heart

You have a good heart, remember that and it is always with you.   This next poem is inspired by just that.  Have a lovely day with your heart today, Clarabelle

Me and My Heart

Me and My Heart, we travel together;
No matter what time, no matter the weather.
We are strong in the sunshine, stronger in the rain,
When we laugh out loud, we are free from pain.
Sometimes we are heavy, closed off to it all;
Sometimes we are happy, having a ball.
But one thing’s for sure, I’ll never change mine;
For me and my heart, we’re simply divine.

Hear me say

Chorus:

Let the Church bells ring for us

What Is Your Inner Desire?

Desire

The sun is shining on me right now as I write this blog post and I feel its energy and warmth beating down on me through my living room window.

Red

My house seems really bare at the moment because I have been refurbishing and I am waiting on my new red sofa to arrive, I can’t stop buying red right now – I will share my thoughts around that in another blog post.

White

There is something about having this extra ‘white’ space in my house that makes me feel free, feel alive in this very moment and gives me true clarity of thinking.  It’s like the energy in this room has space to breathe and dance around me – I can really feel it and it feels good.

If you are a follower of this blog and I truly thank you if you are, you may have noticed that over the last few weeks my posts are changing slightly, this was not deliberate, I am just doing what feels natural to me – I write about what feels right!!  Maybe this is because the energy within and around me is changing, growing and multiplying like never before.

I feel like a magical magnet right now, I am attracting so much goodness and a wealth of abundance like never before.  I feel truly rich in this moment and I am so very grateful for it.

Desire

I am feeling this strong desire to ‘move’ from my current environment and this morning I am already thinking about how I can make this happen.  I may even decide to sell all my worldly goods and go on an adventure to explore all the deep faculties of this amazing world.  I know I can make this happen because when you have desire and I mean real desire for something, nothing will get in your way.  That inner desire that I am talking about turns into an obsession and the pure delight and excitement of having it builds up into such a humongous level of passionate energy….the head is not driving this anymore….the heart is.

When the heart takes control of your destiny, you feel alive, every part of you feels awakened and you see so much beauty in everything around you – everything seems like paradise and it’s like you are vibrating on a different frequency – yes you actually are.

I want to leave you with a heart question today…..What does your heart desire?....not your head, What does your heart desire?  I believe your answer to this question, is your next step on your journey of life.

Love life, live life, be life.

Out with the old and in with the new!!

Out with the old and in with the new

Love, Care and Attention

“Out with the old and in with the new”, that’s my current mode of thinking at the moment.  I’m mainly referring to the refurbishments I am getting done in my home right now, both inside and outside the house and I feel that is a true mirror reflection of what is going on inside of me also.  Leading up to these home refurbishments I had been strongly visualising for a while what I specifically needed and wanted done i.e. whole house painted in white, new red sofa, new wall paintings,outside garden to be looking great, trees felled, hedges trimmed back, be gone with the old shed….basically a full makeover with lots of love, care and attention given to the tasks at hand.

Inside of Me

I feel that work didn’t properly happen until I worked on the inside of me first and I have been on a major self-improvement plan, really quite seriously since October 2011.  I have been doing lots and lots of things to make me a better me and I can honestly say I am feeling the best I have ever felt since probably 2007.  I sorted myself out, put my health and wellbeing at the forefront, focused on my learning and development and went to work every day on me.  It wasn’t an easy job, some days I had to force and push myself to take action, but I did it….I am doing it and I becoming the person I want to be.  I feel an abundance of positive energy flowing through me, there is sunlight beaming from my heart and soul and it is now penetrating into everything I do.  An abundance of opportunities are unfolding in front of my eyes and my self-belief has soared to the greatest of heights.  My confidence in me and my capabilities is second to none and because I have raised my standards I am getting better results for me.

So why am I sharing this with you? 

Well, as I have personally experienced and as we all know, life is not always a bouquet of roses and set backs come our way, we lose faith and hope in ourselves and humanity and we struggle to get out of the gutter.  Our minds are saturated with the pain of negative thoughts and our heart feels abandoned.  If you are reading this part and you can relate to it right now, believe this….positive change for YOU is on its way and I encourage you to take the first baby step towards freeing yourself from the quicksand.  It might be even something simple like making a phone call, speaking to a friend, or like me, expressing your thoughts in poetry.  You will have your own unique way that works for you, but you need to “start with the end in mind”, right now, visualise the positive change you want to see happen for yourself and combine that with deliberate personal action.

Inner Spirit

Yesterday has gone, it’s not coming back, do one thing today that will make a difference to your tomorrow, maybe even your now.  What will that be for you?  Your body, mind, heart and soul is always connected to your inner spirit, dust away the cobwebs, breath in the fresh air and let your inner light guide you on a path that will not only change yourself for the better but will inspire other hearts along the way.

By reading this, you already have the energy of my love igniting your heart……I do hope that’s a nice thought for you and that you will keep the fire burning.

Much love to you today, as always, Clarabelle

Sunshine in her Heart

Illuminate

Whatever the weather outside, please know that there is always sun shining in your heart, creating warmth and pure energy wherever you go.  Feel your inner glow right now, believe that there is no special secret to a fulfilling life, you have all the answers you need, at this very moment.  You don’t need fixing, you just need to illuminate the strength from within your soul, it is this strength that touches others in a moving and inspirational way because we are all connected and your happiness is my happiness too.  This next poem is inspired by just that, may every part of your being today sparkle in the fresh air.  Much love to you, Clarabelle.

Sunshine in her Heart

Sunshine in her Heart

She talks with sunshine, in her heart,

Love flows freely, a connected part.

In the darkest of days, she sees the star,

Bringing it closer, from travels afar.

Imagination sparkles, in every thought,

Happiness in the moment, that cannot be bought.

She is special, she holds cares in the clouds,

Enlightened moments, from amongst the crowds.

Where does this come from?  How did it grow?

What does she feed it, for true love to flow?

There is no secret, or special mix,

The solution is insider her, and there’s nothing to fix.

The Sound of my Heart

The heart doesn’t just beat, it dances, it sings, it smiles, it listens, it guides and nurtures too, and if you listen deeply to the music it plays, it will nourish your soul forever.  For indeed the heart is like a full orchestra creating unique musical vibrations that can only be understood by you, that is why it is so important to silence your mind and listen to your heart.  Dance to the sound of your inner music, this next inspirational quote is for you.  Love Clarabelle.

Listen to your heart
Listen to your heart

“Listen to the sound of my heart,

for each note that it plays,

strengthens my love for you.”

(Clarabelle)

Two Hearts

A little love goes a long long way.  This next poem jumped out of my heart today and I share it with you.  May you be showered with an abundance of true love today.  Clarabelle

Love
Love

Two Hearts

Two hearts, beat as one,

Feel the energy, feel the fun.

Embraced with love, happy thoughts,

Smiles on our faces, stomach in knots.

Dance to the music, sing to the song,

Together in love, is where we belong.

Angels Come Disguised in Many Situations

I Discovered My Purse Had Been Stolen

I want to share something with you today, as I reflect upon the events of my weekend. Everything was going swimmingly well until I discovered my purse had been stolen.  I was meeting a friend for coffee in a Hotel in Glasgow, paid for my coffee and by the time I was leaving the hotel, the purse was gone.  I wasn’t really bothered about the money in the purse, it was only loose change anyway, however I was more sad about losing the sentimental things that were in it, such as little prayers, a poem from my sister which I had for 13 years, photographs of my niece and nephew, photograph of my dad which I have held close to me since 1997, a little medal that my best friend gave to me in 2007 to keep me safe when I was running my first marathon in New York City and lots of beautiful things like that.  Also the purse which was a special gift given to me by another very close friend. I must admit I was feeling very sad and I allowed it to affect the rest of my day.  I also felt a little downhearted that the purse didn’t show up, I really thought that if found in the hotel, someone would have handed it in…..no such luck, I’m afraid.  I must admit my faith in humanity did sink a little, I guess because that is where my focus was at that time.  

A Different Frame of Mind

However, today, I am of a very different frame of mind, after reporting the purse missing to the Police and to the Hotel, I was told of many stories were items of real financial value had been handed in, such as rolls of money containing thousands of pounds, iPads, mobile phones, bags, suitcases, bags of money etc….I smiled, my faith was restored because I had replaced my one bad experience with many wonderful stories where people have been honest and returned the items they found.  

The Real Truth

I will never again doubt the honesty and integrity of humanity, because I know there is much more goodness in the world than not….we just don’t always hear about it and therefore don’t include it in our frame of reference.  When we look at the world only through our own lens, we are in danger of excluding the real truth….that is, what could be and what is possible for each and every one of us.  I take full responsibility for what happened to me on Saturday afternoon and it has taught me many lessons which I am very grateful for.  

A Very Special Thank You

I would like to also offer a very special thank you to the staff members at the multi-story car park in Concert Square, Glasgow City Centre, they were so supportive when I told them I didn’t have my parking ticket (which was in my purse) and had no money to pay for the parking, they were very understanding and let me leave the car park for free.  

Angels

I think Angels come disguised in many situations and it is not until after the event that we realised they touched our heart and soul.  May you open your eyes to the goodness that is in the world today, look out for the success stories of kindness, love and encouragement and let them uplift your spirits today.  Much love to you today, as always, Clarabelle         

My Soul is Free

I am thinking about my happy childhood today, so I decide to take a snapshot memory from one of these true moments and share it with you today.  Release the child inside of you, just for a moment, just for today, be that child once more, it feels so loving and carefree.  Lots of love, Clarabelle.  

My Soul is Free

My Soul is Free

I am 8 years old, I am playing in the swing park and look up to the pretty red sky on a sweet summers night. I see a million lights sparkling in the distance, like the most precious jewels I have ever seen, they mesmerize me.  It feels like I am in a hypnotic state, my heart feels happy, my soul is free, I dream, I visualise my future….

“I’ll be there one day”, I say;

Where?….

Here, right now, I can be there any moment of any day, for my childlike imagination, can take me there.  Whenever I want to go there and without physical travel, I can instantly be there.

Where is there?

There is “Happiness” my friend, Happiness is my home and my heart has always lived there.

Now….what is now?

It’s almost 4am, I haven’t slept yet, I hear the birds chirping outside, they sound very happy indeed….I have this urge to write, not sure what will come out of my soul at these early hours of the morning but here goes……my heart speaks to you.  Much love and light to you today, Clarabelle.

Now...what is now?
Now….what is now?

Now…what is now?

Now….what is now?  I smile;

Peace, love, openness, for a while.

Moved by hearts, touched with care;

Self-expression, take me there.

And if I go, if my time has come;

I know my journey has helped someone.

They write to me, tell me it all;

The footprints of my friends, walking tall.

For in this moment now, I’m alive inside;

Filled with hope, beaming with pride.

You’re never alone, in this physical space;

I hear your cry, I see your face.

The wonders of the world, mesmerize me;

My mind has stopped thinking, the heart is the key.

So hold onto your hat, as the wind blows your way;

Challenges are a plenty, but tomorrow is not today.

Embrace the music, sing the song;

Be at one in this moment, it’s where you belong.
