Happy Birthday Blog ūüôā

Today, I celebrate the birthday of this blog, it is one year old today.  I love putting my heart, soul, passion and energy into this blog and I feel it is evolving as I am evolving.

Inner Growth

I didn’t plan to do this blog, it wasn’t one of my goals but I do remember the day, one year ago, when I decided to set it up here on wordpress. ¬†Prior to that, I had been writing lots and lots of poetry and I was gaining so much inner growth and special connection from my creative self expressions. ¬†Something just clicked with me that day, on 20 April 2012, there was a heightened moment of realisation, a momentary illumination of the heart, that I should share my poetry and other creative expressions on a blog. ¬†I just felt there was this strong inner calling to do that – so I did, I acted on it straight away, with no hesitation, it was a very enlightened experience indeed.

The Story of My Life

It was the right thing to do, this blog is part of me now, it’s the story of my life, the sharing of my secrets, it demonstrates the strength in my vulnerability and the love in my heart. ¬†It has been soul baring, deeply moving and heartwarming at times, I have shared poetic reflections that I used to only whisper to my shadow. ¬†This blog is about who I am and what I am becoming but I know I would not get the same fulfillment, deepest gratitude and satisfaction from it, if it wasn’t connecting with other souls – it has to inspire hearts – it has to help YOU to evolve and advance too. ¬†

I want for you what I want for myself and that is to truly live life, to truly love life, to be who you are, to answer your inner calling, to shape the right way forward for yourself in alignment with your values, to have peace and knowing in your heart that you are all that you ever need to be, to have faith and trust in your ability to use your creative imagination to advance you forward in life and attract a never ending abundance of all that you have ever wanted. ¬†You are on the path to personal evolution, you never came off it, it’s time now to enjoy the scenery and truly live in this moment now……..as I write this, I hear the birds singing outside – in the beauty and gratitude of each precious moment the miracle of life right now will always give us what we need.

Go create with pure passion in your heart, for the tide of opportunity wants you to surf its waves and refresh the soul of the deepest oceans.

Thank you for reading my posts, I truly mean that from the core of my heart.

Much love to you today, Clarabelle

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
