Snowy Cairngorms, Scotland, A Wintry Wonderland

I had indeed a very very beautiful 2. 5 hour walk yesterday in amongst the snowy mountains of the Cairngorms, it was absolutely beautiful and to top it all off I spotted a stunning little doe deer, it was such a lovely surprise. I took a 1 minute video almost 2 hours into my journey. Look at how stunning Bonny Scotland is.

Mr and Mrs Snowman

A little Christmas festive poem to you from me. May Christmas spirit rejoice in your heart forever.

Mr and Mrs Snowman

There was a competition,
Whose snowman was the best.
All the villagers took part,
This was a frosty test.

Snowmen of different sizes,
Displayed a smiley face.
They stood there icy proud,
In this marshmallow place.

But one thing that stood out,
Oh so very clear.
Was all of the snowmen,
Were alone this Christmas Year.

How can you build a snowman,
All alone in this town.
That’s not very fair,
His heart will have a frown.

No snowman should be lonely,
At this Christmas time.
They should be with another,
Sharing mistletoe and wine.

Then in the corner,
A house on a quiet spot.
Had two snowmen standing,
Beside a tiny tot.

Why do you have two,
Snowmen standing tall?
One is a lady she said,
Both going to the snowman ball.

Oh little one,
How beautiful that is.
Mr and Mrs Snowman,
Can share a Christmas kiss.

See them holding hands,
She whispers in the air
Mr and Mrs Snowman,
Now have each other to care.

The people they all smiled,
For indeed their hearts did melt.
This little bundle of joy,
Revealed feelings they never felt.

You are the winner,
A snowman trophy goes to you.
You ignited Christmas spirit,
Removing lonely by building two.

Thank you she said,
This is a happy day.
Now we’re all happy together,
Like one big family.

Mr and Mrs Snowman,
Were built to live together.
May the story of who made them,
Live in your heart forever.

Things Not Moving Fast Enough For You?

Things not moving fast enough for you? Then I guess the Universe feels you’re not quite ready yet for the amazing success that is chapping at your door.

“But I’m ready to answer, right now” I hear you say. Well what are you going to do about it? What?

You know there is always something you can do, I know you know that. Go on then answer, but please make sure you open the right door.

“How will I know?”

Because it’s the one that you are most excited about opening, the one that makes you truly come alive inside…….yes, that’s the door you must open.

Open the door to your dreams.

Love, Clarabelle

In The Eye of a Needle

New Year

I am in poetic flow at the moment, this one’s for you.  Sometimes I don’t know what these poems mean, I wonder what they mean to you?

In the Eye of a Needle

In the eye of a needle,
My soul breathes deep.
I see my heart,
Secrets I keep.

I bury my mind,
In a tunnel of love.
A cave with no light.
Blue sky with no dove.

It’s beyond the horizon,
Seems so far away.
Yet closer than I think,
Honest whispers I pray.

And on a misty morn,
The freshness I feel.
Both of us together,
This dream is real.

I hold out my hand,
Please take it with care.
A nurtured passion,
Leaves my soul stripped bare.

By Clarabelle

I Didn’t Know This!!

IMG_3575.PNG

I didn’t know it, I honestly didn’t know this, for the best part of my life, I didn’t know this……I just didn’t.

Well, what is it, that I didn’t know?

I didn’t know that I could write, I didn’t know that I would want to write, I didn’t know that I was passionate about writing, until I started writing.  I mean really started writing, regularly, consistently and being inspired to write on this blog.

It’s not that I didn’t write before, sure I’ve wrote many policies and procedures, I’ve written University Assignments, I’ve written Board Reports, I’ve written Client Summary Reports but and I mean a BIG BUT, to me, although they obviously were writing, they weren’t freedom writing, they weren’t my heart speaking and flowing with inspiring graciousness.

So to me there is “writing” and there is “real writing” and I am now captivated in the latter.

I am 41 years young now and I started this Clarabelle Blog at the age of 38, wow, has it really taken that long for me to hear my calling, for me to really truly listen to the whispers of my heart??  WOW!!

I guess it has…………………..and you know what, it doesn’t matter when in life you discover what your calling is, what’s more important is that you respond positively and do what your heart is telling you to do and in my case, I guess, it is writing……writing like this, yes, just like this, nothing too fancy, nothing too wordy, keeping it simple but full of inspirational wisdom with a poetic verse thrown in for good measure.

Isn’t life kinda funny, one minute you think you’re headed on one path and all of a sudden, something happens and you’re nudged up another path (notice I said “up” not “down”)!!  Cos we’re on our way up here, right!!

I wonder what your heart is whispering to you…..I wonder?  Do you wonder, or do you know the answer already to that one?  I really hope you do and you are acting upon it.

Lots of love to you today, as always, Clarabelle

I See You

inspire

I see you, I know you’re watching me, I believe you are listening to every word I whisper, I feel you’re desire for a better you, a better life, a new tomorrow.

But I know you are a little scared, you have fears, but you’re going to be alright, you’re going to be much much better than alright. How do I know this? I just know this, because that’s why you’re here, everyday you visit me and you know it will help you, you know it will help you ease your current pain and you’re gonna make it.

Did you hear me right?  Yes, you, YOU, you’re gonna make it, that dream you’ve always wanted to achieve, that burning ambition living inside of you……it’s making its way to your heart, it wants to breathe true life into you, it’s getting ready to take on the world and nothing is going to stop it, which means nothing is going to stop you.

Pause for a moment, think about it……really think about it, you can see it right?  I know you can, because I can see it too. WOW, it looks amazing, your future self is so grateful you took the courage and made the first step now.  Go on, take another step, that’s right, you’re doing really great…….do you feel your heart smiling, it is you know, it is smiling with super joy because you’re heading in the right direction.  Where are you going?  Maybe we could do this together, help each other along the way, two brave soldiers heading out into battle and the only outcome possible is reaching the rainbow at the other end.

What a great day this is, this is the most amazing day for you, you might not realise it yet, but you’ve just climbed a huge mountain and you’re now looking at the view from the top……..You may be a little bruised getting here, but you’ve got here, wasn’t it all worth it, don’t you agree that you deserve so much better for you and for your family.  Let’s go my friend, there’s another mountain to climb, but we’re in this together, fighting with our hearts and minds to achieve EVERYTHING that we want and more.

I see you, do you see me?

I can do attitude

Sunny Love

Some days I am just full of energy, like today.  I was in bed fairly early last night and woke up at 3am as bright as a button.  It was pitch black outside but I thought to myself, get up and do what you need/want to do, so I did, rather than stare into the darkness of the room.

Sometimes I write my best stuff at this time in the morning, I really do and I love it when that happens.

So treat yourself to an early night and wake up early morning, fully alive and ready to take on your dreams.  Remember to take time to watch the morning sun come up, it is such a beautiful scene.

Lots of sunny love to you today, ClarabelleIMG_3556.JPG

I Told Him So

Romance is in the air, spreading the love through a poetic verse or two……enjoy.

I Told Him So

I told him so
I love him dearly
I feel his heart
I see it clearly
Many footsteps,
May seem afar
Our love grows
Beyond the star
Dust will settle
On magical ground
The bell rings
I hear his sound
A smile for you
A tear for me
I told him so
I love him dearly

Who is this Woman?

Poetic moments from my poetic heart to you.

Who is this Woman?

Who is this woman?
With dreams for the taking.
What is she doing?
What is she making?

She talks of big plans,
And all things good.
She always shines,
In a positive mood.

Why is she writing?
Like she’s talking to me.
Building me up,
Taller than a tree.

Will she tell us?
When her desires show.
Moving from her soul,
And her spirit do flow.

I like her a lot,
This woman on a mission.
Encouraging my heart,
Retrieving my vision.

So I guess I’ll listen,
And set my goals too,
This woman is an Angel,
She lives inside of you.

Fairytale Ending

Do you believe in Fairytale endings?… I certainly do, you’ve got to. You’ve got to believe that everything you are working towards on the pathway to your dreams is going to manifest just the way you want it to or even better than that.

Your Fairytale ending is the ultimate vision you want for your future, even if it only feels like a whisper in the wind at the moment. Keep digging, keep trying, keep putting the right energy out there and something’s got to catch, like a ripple effect on the water, only this ripple is connected to your Fairytale ending.

See your reflection in the lake, see it as a mirror image of the person you are becoming, your future self dancing joyfully in your Fairytale ending.

Do something today to get you closer to your dreams…….keep up the great work and never stop putting in the effort that you need to put in until you get there.

Do you believe in Fairytale endings? I do. 🙂

Happy days, Clarabelle

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. 🙂 IMG_3447.JPG

Oprah Winfrey’s Hands

In a previous blog post last week, I wrote a poem about Oprah Winfrey reading my book, this is what I want. I moved forward with this desire last week and posted to Oprah Winfrey a copy of my Amazon book, “Clarabelle’s Musings”.

I researched into 3 addresses to send it into Oprah Winfrey, so, yes you’ve guessed it, I sent a copy of my book to each of the 3 addresses – it could be in her hands, right now, as we speak.

I really do believe this is a book that Oprah Winfrey will absolutely love, I truly do and I guess if it’s meant for her to read she will definitely get the opportunity to read it, the Universe will make sure of that.

I shall keep you posted on developments, it may be 6 days, 6 weeks or 6 years, but let’s just see what happens.

I hope that you will take some encouragement out of this blog post for yourself, I hope it inspires you to take your dreams one step further.

Happy days to you, love Clarabelle.

Be Open to this Understanding

Sometimes in life we want to be a little shut off from the world….like having “temporary me” time, to give ourselves time to adjust, adapt, heal, plan, write, reflect…..or whatever that needs to be.

It is important to recognise when you need that time and not to feel obliged to expose it. When you are ready you will and not before then….this is valuable “me time”. It’s okay if others find it strange to understand at first, it’s better for you to “seek first to understand before being understood”, than the other way about. See it from their perspective first…..it will free your mind up to continue to focus all your energies on you.

If this is you, and/or you are in need of some “space” and some precious “me time” make sure you have it…….it will be good for your soul and you will re-emerge out of your cocoon with renewed energy and a fresh perspective on life.

Be open to this understanding and it will help you every step of the way.

Soon you’ll be flying……soon my friend, believe that. 🙂

Much love to you, Clarabelle

Pass on a Smile

Smile

I encourage you today to pass on a smile to a stranger or to someone you don’t usually smile at. Go on, you can do it, even if they don’t smile back or acknowledge it outwardly, I can assure you it will touch them inwardly, it will make their heart smile and it will make your heart smile too.

Much love and happiness to you today, Clarabelle

IMG_3573.JPG

A Grateful Heart

Be thankful for everything you have in your life right now and most of all be thankful for your life. I am forever thankful to be here and share my happy spirit with you on this blog.

Take a moment to reflect upon all that you are grateful for, you will be amazed at how good it feels.

Thank you for being here.

Love Clarabelle

Do Some Planning

You have to put the preparation and planning in today to get what you want out of tomorrow…..put the hard work in now and reap the rewards down the line. Better days are on their way for sure.

Love Clarabelle

Come into the Light

Come into your own light today and express the real you. Let go of all fears that prevent you from moving forward. Embrace each new person into your life with warmth, smiles and kindness. When you see someone struggling, give them a piece of your light, it will make you sparkle even more.

Stand strong and bright, this world needs you.

Love Clarabelle

What Chapter Are You On?

Imagine you have a book of your life, what chapter is today on? Is it the beginning of a new chapter or is it the start of a new page. Are you telling a positive story or is it somewhat more challenging?

Reflect on your life as it is today and get prepared to fill in the future blank pages…..what do you want the pages to say about your life going forward?

My future pages are filled with love, happiness, adventures, exploration, new discoveries, exciting experiences and the achievement of passionate aims….I see myself super healthy, wealthy and forever happy and I am inspiring people all over the world with my creativity.

Go on create today your successes of tomorrow….see that for yourself now and feel how good that feels.

I see your book on the shelf and I want to read it. 🙂

Looking forward to hearing all about it soon.

Love Clarabelle

Surprise Surprise!!

IMG_3466.JPG

Expect a wonderful happy surprise, feel what that feels like and you know what, I believe that the law of attraction has got to give it to you.

Do what feels good to you and that doesn’t mean that you have to wait until it has actually materialised, feel good now, in this moment and smile.  I think a lovely surprise is on it’s way to you and to me…just you wait and see!!

Life is full of wonderful surprises, love to you, 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

Write Don’t Type

letter writing

Write Don’t Type!!

As I “type” this 🙂 I urge you today to handwrite a letter to someone.  By writing a letter to a friend or family member, to me, it actually feels much more meaningful, it gives it much more sincerity and thoughtfulness.  That’s not to say that an email can’t be, but I just think it is really nice now and again to handwrite a letter to a special person in your life.

Today I had the choice to send an email or handwrite a letter and for the first time in a long time, I did the latter…..I sat down at my desk and wrote a letter to the person.  Now I did deliberately make more time for it and yes my hand was a little sore after filing 6 pages but, you know what, it felt really really good, I felt that I was putting some beautiful loving energy onto that paper and now that person will receive that lovely energy even more so when they read.

Who do you want to write a letter to today?  I encourage you to take some time out of your beautiful busy life and handwrite a letter to someone important in your life.  Believe me you will receive many benefits by doing this and so will the person receiving the letter, I am so sure of that.

Happy writing, love Clarabelle

Clarabelle's Musings

Dedicated to Paratrooper Steve

Following on from my previous post, I dedicate this poem to Steve who is sadly no longer here:

A Paratrooper….

I saw an Ad
To write to you
You wanted a friend
Another focus too.

In January 97,
You said “Hello”
“My name is Steve
I have a sore toe.

From all the marching,
And running too,
It bleeds sometimes,
But this is what I do.

I jump from planes,
It was scary at first.
But now these skyfalls
Quench my thirst.

I love to travel,
I love the sun
I’m studying like crazy.
When not with a gun.

A paratrooper by title,
I was 18 at the start,
5 years later,
A strong soldier with a heart.

Sometimes I’m lonely,
A lot of times I’m not.
So busy with my life,
I make good of what I’ve got.

I love my fitness,
It’s important to me.
I try to improve,
Be the best I can be.

Sorry if this letter,
Arrived a little late.
But I’ll send you some photos,
Just a little more to wait.

I love to get your mail,
Please write soon Claire.
Keep smiling, soldier on.
Love from Steve, take care.”

31 of these letters,
I treasure with happy tears
So sad that you are gone Steve,
Thank you for those two years.

Perfect Fit

Sometimes you just come across work out there that is a perfect fit for you at this moment in time and when that does happen it feels so wonderful inside. I urge you to seek the perfect work that fits your circumstances right now, believe me, you will enjoy it so much more than the ultimate dream job at the wrong time or worse still that high flying job that gives you no rest and no life outside of work.

Think about it, think about securing the perfect fit for you and your life right now and enjoy the journey.

Much love to you, Clarabelle

Isn’t Life Funny

IMG_3457

A poem of how funny life can be sometimes….funny strange that is!!

Isn’t Life Funny

Isn’t life funny,
In a strange kind of way.
One moment you’re up,
Another you’re in dismay.

As the clouds pass by,
Remember one thing.
That all can change,
With a telephone ring.

For what you seek,
Is seeking you.
It’s in the air,
Travelling through.

It wants to make you happy,
It wants to make you thrive.
Growing like a sunflower,
Feeling so alive.

So laugh when you can,
Smile at the passer by.
Life is what it is,
And I know you know why.

By Clarabelle

It’s Only A Matter of Time

IMG_3534

It’s only a matter of time for your vision to come alive.  First you feel it in your heart, then you see it in your imagination, then you feel it moving in your bones and then it dances throughout your body….and only when it has flowed through all of those stages, only then it begins to take form.

It starts with one word, one step, one piece of the 100,000 piece jigsaw puzzle but it doesn’t matter how long it takes, because you know “your calling” is going to make it.  Listen to me my friend, it’s only a matter of time……because it is in silence of faith that dreams can be awakened.

So can I relate to the above?  Yes, you’ve got it, of course I can.  Almost 6 years ago, I was kind of laughed at because I said at the very start of my business that I was going to have my own books, my very own positive book range……I just knew what they were thinking, their faces said it all, but you know I BELIEVED, I really believed in me, I always do and sometimes I get off track but I always get back there, back to where I need to be.

I sit here today looking at my first Amazon paperback book,”Clarabelle’s Musings”, sitting on my home office desk and I am smiling with pure joy, excitement and adoration of what I see before me……for my heart is sitting on this table, my heart is painted on the pages of this book, making its way to you.

IMG_3536

IMG_3535

So if you believe like I believed in me, when other people laughed at what I wanted to achieve for myself, may my own story inspire you to keep going my friend…..6 days, 6 months, 6 years, you’re going to make it…..it’s only a matter of time.

Much love to you, Clarabelle

It’s Hard

IMG_3527.JPG

Every moment is a moment to change, don’t give up the fight, there are hands and many hearts helping you forever.  Keep going my friend.  Love Clarabelle.

It’s Hard to Believe

It’s hard to believe,
in the torrential rain.
That the sun will shine,
and free you from pain.

It’s hard to let go,
when love pulls you in.
But a one sided love,
can never win.

It’s hard to smile,
when you’re hurting inside,
when the river runs deep,
and you’ve lost all pride.

It’s hard to be you,
when you feel so drained,
emotional pain,
keeping you chained.

But believe my heart,
believe what it says.
The rainbow is ready,
and the Angel prays.

She flies above your home,
drying up your tears.
She sends you much love,
and banishes the fears.

And as you sleep,
in bed tonight.
the little Angel of love,
Shines on you bright.

With a warmth like no other.
and a pure glowing heart.
Sad times move on
And you’ll have a fresh start.

By Clarabelle

Pick Up Your Soul

A poignant poem to reflect bravery in your soul. This one is especially for you today. Love Clarabelle

Pick Up Your Soul

Pick up your soul,
And carry on.
Lost adventures,
Hope was gone.

But sunny days,
Are here again.
No more sadness,
No more pain.

For now you know,
Your heart was talking.
It whispered from within,
Whilst struggling walking.

It said, “I believe,
In all you are,
You’re a happy spirit,
A shining star”

You listened in fear,
Stepped forward in tears,
For you really believed,
That after all these years.

Times were changing,
The past was the past.
And the present tough times,
They would not last.

So with your head held high,
For all to see,
You picked up your soul,
And carried me.

Inspiration Will Find You

Inspiration will find you when you’re ready to be inspired, just like the famous phrase, when the student is ready the teacher will appear. An inspired heart has the power to breakthrough almost any barrier. Are you ready to be inspired?….I guess you are because you’re here, thank you.

Lots of love to you today, Clarabelle

Rest When You Need It

I needed to rest my body yesterday, it was crying out for a longer sleep, so I eventually gave it yesterday what it needed and I woke up this morning feeling even more than ready to take on the world. This poem is just about that. Does your body need a little holiday?

Rest When You Need It

Rest when you need it,
Just take a break.
It’s amazing how you’ll feel.
Full of life and awake.
So recognise in your body,
When it needs to sleep
A short 40 minutes,
Or a longer slumber deep.
Your energy will be better,
Your heart will feel so good
Rejuvenate yourself,
Live in a happy mood.

Festival of Faith

Have faith, strong,strong faith that your dreams are here, feel them in your heart right now and rejoice in your festival of faith. A poetic verse for you today:

A Festival of Faith

A festival of faith,
Lives in me.
In gives me hope,
So I can be.
Everything I want,
And even some more.
Believing in the “yes”,
And an opened door.
It encourages my soul,
Breathing life into me,
An explosion of knowing,
That no eyes can see.
A feeling from within,
A heart with a spark,
Igniting my spirit,
Shining light in the dark.

By ClarabelleIMG_1045.JPG

You’ve Made It

Let’s get going, yes you, yes YOU and me, let’s get going with our life, our wonderfully inspiring beautiful life…….now smile, you’ve made it.

You’ve Made It

Wow, I think you’ve made it,
I always knew you would.
You faced your deepest fears,
Turned bad times into good.

When all in life seemed lost,
And very troublesome too,
A huge wave of inspiration,
Got hold of the person in you.

You’ve come so very far.
Be proud and feel rejoice,
Your empowering creative spirit,
Released its encouraging voice.

Now your amazing success,
Is so easy to see.
All the hurt and pain,
Guided you to be free,

So celebrate this happy,
You deserve all it brings,
Because you are a fighter,
And inspire all great things.

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 “I 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.”

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 – 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.

Would You Bare Your Soul?

angel cloud

Sometimes poems just whisper out of me, the words just appear and I have to write them down straight away, just like this moment now, just like today, when my heart sang these words. It’s maybe a message to me and you, to live your life now like your soul would want it to.  I guess my poems are the baring of my soul to you.

Would you bare your soul?

Would you bare your soul?
So heaven would let you in.
The promise of a peaceful land.
Full of happiness within.
Where Angels pray in song,
And many hearts entwine.
Brought together in love,
A miracle of the divine.
So when your last day falls,
And puddles of tears appear.
Your soul knows where it’s going,
Sweet hymns whisper you near.
The stairway is alight,
With candles either side.
They represent each moment,
Your heart touched another inside.
The shadows are now behind you,
No pain follows you there.
For freedom ignites your spirit,
And your soul is now stripped bare.

Time is of the essence, none of us get out of this life alive, that’s for sure……so let your soul dance in the now, as it’s paving the way to your happy ever after.

Love Clarabelle

Hope Sets You Free

Don’t be a prisoner of your own mind, don’t tighten the straight jacket with unfulfilling whispers. Remember this my friend, hope sets you free. A poem about hope for you:

Hope Sets You Free

Hope is taking a chance,
A last look glance.
A hand held tight,
When nothing seems right.
Eyes with a soul,
Tunnel towards the goal.
A prayer at the start,
A loving heart.
It is the fire,
Lighting the desire.
A candle in rhyme,
Flickering through time.
Let hope be your key,
Hope sets you free.

The Angel of Hope is in your heart, welcome her today with open arms.

Love Clarabelle.

Sacred Love Story

There’s something very profound and beautiful about two people in love, it’s sacred and special.

We often hear a lot about broken hearts and maybe not enough about hearts in love.

But sometimes, just at the beginning of a new love story, it is so precious and so magical that the new romantics just want to embrace it tenderly for themselves, a sacred love story. Just two happy, sweet, unattached people, who then fell in love, the purest of love.

And the beautiful thing is, that no matter what life throws at them, their love is never torn apart, actually it just makes their love for each other even stronger.

I hope you truly have experienced your very on sacred love story and if not, believe me, what you seek, is seeking you.

This is my sacred love story, what’s yours?

Sweet Love to you, Clarabelle

What Do You Miss Doing?

I miss my music, I miss music in my life……I haven’t picked up the microphone for a little while and I feel it is calling for me, I have a pull feeling towards it. So why is this?

I truly believe that things in life that are part of who we are will always return, just like a wonderful whizzing boomerang, it comes straight back to you.

What do you miss doing in your life? ….And better still, what are you going to do about it? 🙂

I know what I am going to do……sing, tra lah lah lah lah.

My whispers sing to your heart today,

Much love, Clarabelle

Don’t Rush the Process

IMG_3527.JPG

It’s easy to feel frustrated that things are moving as fast as you would like them to, that progress seems slow or non-existent at present.  However, have faith and patience that the results will come and that you will achieve the right outcomes for you.  Frustration can be a good thing, it just means you’re ready, you’re ready for CHANGE……and once you’re ready, well anything can happen, believe me….and it positively will.

Don’t rush the process, because in time the rewards will come, so keep putting in every effort to the little things and big changes will appear.

Positive change is on it’s way for you.

Love Clarabelle

Even Angels Have a Bad Day

angel cloud

Having a bad day?…..Even Angels have a bad day.

Without the bad days, you wouldn’t experience the best of the best days, because you wouldn’t have that contrast, that knowing, that feeling.

Your perspective on life situations can make or break you. Why don’t you challenge your current perspective and see where this takes your thinking?

Having a good day?  Even Angels have good days.

miracle rainbow

Miracles are everywhere and can happen at any moment in your life, I truly believe that.  I share with you below one of the poems from my paperback book, Clarabelle’s Musings, I hope you love it like I do:

Miracle to Life

As the angel, holds my soul,

The brightest diamond, comes out of coal.

Sparkling like stars, glistening forever,

Floating in the air, flowing like a river.

The staircase is calling, I see the light,

The sun would not change, this darkest night.

But somewhere from within, the heart beats stronger,

Vibrating positive energy, sadness no longer.

The tears turn to laughter, the mind is brave,

I climb over rocks and come out of my cave.

Such a beautiful scene, golden birds in flight,

The freshest breeze, body relaxed not tight.

To have a reason to live, and try again,

Is your miracle to life, free from pain.


And here’s the book available on Amazon for you Clarabelle’s Musings

Enough is Enough

IMG_3458

I wrote this poem to inspire you:

Enough is Enough

Enough is Enough,
That’s what he said.
Forget the past,
Get out of bed.
When all ain’t well,
When times get bad.
Remember the happy,
Not the sad.
Focus on giving,
Give all you’ve got.
Put yourself first,
Pick up your trot.
Set mini goals,
Ones you’ll achieve.
Momentum will build,
The more you’ll believe.
The time has come,
Be all you can be,
Take a stance now,
Forever you’ll be free.

By Clarabelle.

It’s your life, go get it!!

The Time Will Come

Inner Butterfly

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

On my book, Clarabelle’s Musings:

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

On my book, Clarabelle’s Affirmations:

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

On my book, Clarabelle’s Keys to Happiness:

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

On my book, Clarabelle’s Christmas Joys:

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

On my book, Clarabelle Presents Nature’s Gifts:

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

On my book, Clarabelle’s Moving Motivations:

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

On my book, Clarabelle’s Heart and Soul:

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

On my book, Clarabelle’s Creative Inspirations:

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

On my book, Clarabelle’s Poems of Love:

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

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

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

All my love for a beautiful day, Clarabelle

Goodbye Sunshine, Hello Moon

A poem dedicated to the kindness of new friends and the goodbye memories in my heart.

Goodbye Sunshine

Goodbye Sunshine,
Hello Moon.
Brightest stars,
So long bloom.

Hearts gone by,
Tears collide,
Hugs of warmth,
People who guide.

Sparkling eyes,
Whispered treasure,
Thank you friends,
It’s my pleasure.
