Thank You For……

Beautiful Soul

Awesome

If you are a regular follower or visitor of this blog you will be fully aware that I am a big fan of gratitude, gratitude, gratitude.  🙂  I am truly so grateful for everything I have in my life right now and I know that because of my deepest gratitude for it all, the Universe brings to me more things to be fully grateful for.  This next poem is inspired by my gratitude to all that I have, all that I am and all that I am becoming……I know life can be tough at times but it also can be truly AWESOME too.  Thank YOU, love Clarabelle.

Mission Statement

Snap Happy

Balmaha Bay

Today I am going to go on a day trip to Balmaha Bay, Balloch, Scotland with my mum and during that trip I am going to be “snap happy” as I will be taking some beautiful photos for my new eBook that’s coming out, “It’s All About Gratitude”.  I am excited about doing this and it will also be really lovely to spend a day with my mum.

I love Balmaha Bay, for me it is a place of deep beauty and peaceful tranquility and sometimes this is just what the doctor ordered.  🙂

In 2011 I wrote a poem about Balmaha, I have already shared it on this blog before, but here it is again, just in case you missed it first time round:

Balmaha Lake
A frozen Balmaha Lake January 2011

Sweet Balmaha Bay

Balmaha, an inspiring place,
Oh how I love, your beautiful face.
The silent lake, speaks many words,
A magical paradise, beneath the flight of birds.
My soul’s at home, when I visit you,
I feel at one, below the sky so blue.
As I tie a yellow ribbon, around the old oak tree,
I appreciate your world, for all to see.
The air is clean, fresh and new,
The shimmering sunlight, makes a stunning view.
And the many boats, who sail in leisure,
Uplifting spirits, you provide great pleasure.
In hail or rain, sunshine or snow,
Your tranquil beauty, will always show.
For the depths of your heart, are in everyone,
Sweet Balmaha Bay under the horizon sun.

 Poem By Clarabelle, 2011

Wherever you go today and whatever you do, I do hope it brings you sweet happiness and fulfillment, much love to you Clarabelle.  🙂

What does your ‘Now’ & ‘Future’ look like?

Self Discovery

The pathway to self discovery can be approached in many ways and I am great believer that you should always choose the best way that works for you, because we are very different.  One of the approaches that I use, is sometimes I will answer a question by drawing a picture, let me explain further.

Yesterday I was in reflective mode and I decided to draw a picture of my life ‘Now’ and my life in the ‘Future’.  I never have a specific image in mind I just start drawing, I draw what feels right for e.g. the colours, the symbols…. what’s important to me at the time is how they feel not necessarily what they look like visually. As you can see below my drawing skills are not really to be desired 🙂 but I don’t do it for that, I do it for the meaningful connection that I believe comes from the source of my being.  I know this may sound a little far fetched or even a little crazy to some but I know these drawings have meanings and even if I don’t understand them completely right now, I always find out later what they have meant.  So below I will share with you the drawing I drew yesterday of my ‘Now’ (left) and my ‘Future’ (right), what do they mean to you?  I would really love to know what you think.  Why don’t you even give it a go yourself.

Much love to you today as always, Clarabelle.

The Serenity of the Sun

Sunlight

Pure sunlight, it is beautiful, truthful and spiritual for me.  I remember when I wrote the poem below and how I felt writing it at the time, I felt at peace and at one with myself, it was very early in the morning and I knew I was connected to the power of the universe. Let the silence between each line, awaken your soul and connect your spirit to a higher purpose.  Your sun shines from within, let it radiate beauty and inspire other hearts around you today.  Much love to you, Clarabelle.

The Serenity of the Sun

The wisdom, is in the space,

The silent thought, upon thy face.

Vibrations of hope, joy and love,

The serenity of the sun, as I look above.

Between the lines, opportunity awaits,

Creation of the soul, happiness at the gates.

The heart softly beats, today begins,

This morning I welcome, gratitude wins.
