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

In Time….

Leadership Quote

Time is precious, this poem is for you.

Time is Precious

A dimension of hope,
A Universal clock.
Time gently passes,
Tick, Tick, Tock.

I look out the window,
What do I see?
A Vision of my mind,
Staring back at me.

Every little second,
Every tiny drop.
Fills the blue ocean.
Feeds the cold crop.

Rumbling in the mist,
This sound catches fire.
Your time is precious,
Fulfill your heart’s desire.

What is S.F.A.M?

Super Focused Action Mode
Super Focused Action Mode

S.F.A.M

I have been in S. F.A.M lately, what does that mean?

It means, Super Focused Action Mode.

I feel everything right now is in alignment with where I am going i.e. my mental, emotional, spiritual and physical wellbeing is matching what I am becoming and what I am achieving in life.

I can honestly say I haven’t felt as super strong as this for a while, probably in about 5 years, maybe even longer, I don’t know.  I feel excited, enthusiastic, passionate, super focused, super creative, full of energy and full of action.  I have definitely taken things to a new level and when I really think about it, I am not even sure if I have ever been on this level before and I can honestly say I am LOVING IT.

Can you feel my passion, can you feel my excitement because if I could, I would bottle it and gladly give it out for free.  🙂 🙂 🙂

I do hope this post has inspired YOU into S.F.A.M.

Wishing you a day filled with inspired action.

Love Clarabelle

“No TV….Weirdo”

clarabelle-cartoon-character-21.jpg

Coaching

I was coaching a client in July 2011 and she was talking about not having a TV anymore, there were lots of positives coming from this discussion, so much so that when I went home that evening I didn’t want to have a TV anymore either, so I got rid of it, that very day.

Positives

I must say, this has been one of the best things I ever did and so many positives have come from me not having a TV.  I started to read more books, make more time for exercise, visit people more, talk to friends on the telephone, research into subjects I was interested in, focus more on developing myself and my business and one of the best positives was then having the time to start this Clarabelle blog and post on a regular basis.

Weird

When I made this decision the people around me thought I was being “weird”, some of them still do. The first thing people usually ask me when they come into my home is “Where is your TV?” and now I very proudly say I haven’t had a TV for over 2 years and I love not having a TV.  Usually this is followed by “Really, well what do you then with your time then?” and I very happily tell them all the positive things I do which grow me as a person, maximise my wellbeing and build my relationships with other people, sometimes I will even refer them to this Clarabelle blog.  🙂

Self Development

I am not saying that not having a TV is for everyone, it just really works for me, I live myself and prefer now to read a good self development book rather than watch a drama on TV.

All in all a very good decision for me and the positive outcomes have been tremendous.

Below is a picture of my living room, living happily without a TV. 🙂

You may want to keep your TV for various reasons but maybe you could consider reducing the time you watch it, for e.g. 1 hour less per day, that will then give you an extra 7 hours per week to do something else you may not have time for right now!!  Just a thought 🙂

Wherever you are today, whatever you are doing, I do hope it is helping you to move closer to your goals.  Lots of love to you today, Clarabelle.

In Time We Heal

Beautiful sky

Life Purpose

I have been sharing on this blog that I am currently making a career transition to Singer/Songwriter.  Since May 2013 I have been writing songs that are inspired by my true experiences, creating lyrics and melodies that make a real connection with me and hopefully with you the listener.  I have written 22 songs in that short period of time because I know this is my life purpose (including my poetry) and it feels very right to me.

In Time We Heal

Today I want to share with you one of my favorites songs that I wrote on 26 July 2013, it is called “In Time We Heal“.  The song is about self healing after a period of struggle and pain and I can truly say that I am healed from my own situation.  Below is the Soundcloud link and lyrics to it so you can sing a long if you wish.  🙂

Here is the Soundcloud link:  In Time We Heal by Clarabelle

Gigs

I have had various meetings with people in the music industry to help me with the backing tracks for all the songs and I will then perform gigs starting in Scotland and then branching out all over.  I would really love to come to your hometown/city so please let me know if you would like me to come along and do a gig for you.  I am also creating an Album entitled “The Becoming of Me” which will contain 13 of the best tracks for you to listen to.

Below are the lyrics:

In Time We Heal

Verse 1

Troubled times
Lost my mind
Feeling lonely
From afar
I see that star
One and only
Take me to the top
Never let me stop
Let me go

Chorus

Because in time we heal
And soon the battle’s over
Over again
And the sun shines within
Soon the rain storm is over
over and we win

Verse 2

Drinking wine
Can feel divine
When you’re lonely
Bitter sweet
It’s no real treat
When you phone me
Take me to the light
In the darkest night
Let me glow

Chorus

Because in time we heal
And soon the battle’s over
Over again
And the sun shines within
Soon the rain storm is over
over and we win

Bridge

And we win
Oh yes we win
And we win
Oh yes we win
Yes we win
Oh yes win
And we win
Oh yes win

Chorus (to fade)

Because in time we heal
And soon the battle’s over
Over again
And the sun shines within
Soon the rain storm is over
over and we win
And we win
Oh yes we win

 Copyright Clarabelle 26 July 2013

Remember that your sun shines from within, soon the rain storm is over and you win.

Lots of love to you today, Clarabelle

Face the Music

copy-timeline-25.jpg

Time stands still for no one, tick tock, tick tock, tick tock….second after second life goes by, tick tock, tick tock, tick tock, there goes another moment.   STOP!!!  THINK!!  and ask yourself this question, “What are YOU going to do?”  Remember it’s still ticking, every breath you take, every blink of an eye, the second hand on the clock goes round.  ACT!! Just do what you need to do to challenge yourself and make your life better today.  Be brave, be bold, step out of your comfort zone and just you GO FOR IT!!  I know I am.  This next poem is for you my lovely friends, I hope you make each moment count today.  Lots of love to you Clarabelle.

Face the Music

I hear it play
I know its sound
From up above
And underground
I feel it move
Shift a beat
I feel its presence
Dancing in my feet
The candle burns
The clock ticks by
Around it goes
Flying high
Face the music
See its light
It is with you
Burning bright
This is your time
Know this and more
Building bridges
A new path to explore
There’s no straight line
No end, no beginning
There is only love
Your heart is winning

Whispering Words

Time ticks on, moment after moment, breath after breath.  The sun rises, the sun sets and the clouds drift in slow motion, pause for a second, appreciate the time you have and live your life in meaningful pursuit.  This next poem is for you….time is of the essence. Wherever you are, I do hope the sun is shining on you.

Whispering Words

Time is of the essence, appreciate it well

The senses are awakening, I’m under your spell

Whispering words, silence in me

This daisy chain of life, surrounds the hollow tree

Each petal of hope, floats carefree in the breeze

Touching hearts, melting the freeze

Connecting souls, shining like stars

Breaking down barriers, bending the bars

The mind thinks, with passion and belief

Summer searches on, as I grasp the autumn leaf

And in the palm of my hand, I hold it tight

It’s a fragile treasure, escaping from the light

To let it go, is brave and true

Seasons change hope, that grows within you
