Law of Attraction in a Nutshell

I have studied and grasped the rudiments of the Law of attraction. In its most simplistic terms like attracts like; so, want and lack attract more want and lack whereas happiness, laughter, joy and faith usher in juicy, joyous goodness. We all have the power to create our own reality. Absolutely everything is energy including our thoughts, emotions, mood and deeds, and it is through these that we manifest our lives. I understand this law intellectually and yet still find myself a master at self-sabotage. When life has dealt a person a string of less than auspicious cards it can be easy to dwell on loss and failure and, even though we may be striving for brighter bounty, this indulgent dwelling will destroy our most cheery and valiant efforts to shine and succeed as sure as eggs are bleedin’ eggs! Does this resonate with you I wonder? I have recently launched a new business, Brightsoul. I have designed a range of contemporary, spiritually inspired cards and each day you will find me reaching out to …

Please Support Me

I would be beyond grateful for your support… It has been a while since I have been successful financially and my confidence has taken a battering and is bruised – my bank balance is scanty. When people see my work online I have reason to believe that they automatically assume that, as a professional, I am solvent and have little need for encouragement or patronage. This is not true. Brightsoul – Spiritually Inspired cards. With busy lives it can easily slip minds to buy a card for Auntie Dot’s birthday or baby Alfie’s christening. The simple solution is to have a selection of cards in the draw for any/all occasions. Brightsoul cards are visually appealing and non-occasion specific. With metaphysical and esoteric imagery they are open for individual interpretation and perfect for giving. They are also great to frame and hang on your wall or display on your altar – (if that is your kinda thing)! Shop here. Brightsoul’s mission is to create beautiful cards with a subtle, yet inherent, bright message to help promote …

Third Eye Activation

So these days you will find me regularly meditating in an attempt to open my Third Eye. (No, I am not Cyclops sister!). The Third Eye is medically attributed to be the Pineal Gland which sits kinda central in the brain and resembles a wee Pine Cone – hence its name. This small gland, that nestles between the two hemispheres of the brain, produces Melatonin a Serotonin derived hormone which modulates sleep patterns. Biologically this gland is said to represent a kind of atrophied photoreceptor – that’s a simple eye to you and me; it is also, sometimes, called a Pigment Pit. In Theosophy, a collection of mystical and occultist philosophies, the third eye is related to the Pineal Gland and it is said that in ancient times humans had an actual third eye in the back of the head with a spiritual and physical function. As humans evolved this eye atrophied and sunk into what we now call the Pineal Gland. Interestingly Rene Descartes, French philosopher, mathematician, and scientist 1596 – 1650, believed this …

Creating Your Own Reality

As pure vibrational energy, I have come to believe that, each of us throughout the minutes, hours and days are responsible for creating our own realities by our thoughts and deeds. Now if this statement does not blow your mind and make your innards quiver with excitement, at the potential woven into these words, I fear you may not be ready for this revelation. I am no scientist – in fact in Chemistry lessons, back in the dusty recess of my ignoble laboratory school days, results and comprehension were thin on the lab bench as experiments bubbled over, exploded and left me bewildered and embarrassed. Yet Quantum Physicists substantiate my opening gambit and without trying to comprehend the science behind their claims I choose to believe them. My Spirit guides reiterate this truth to me. There was a time, before I was buffeted and became cynical with life, that things went my way. I can pretty much identify the time when things changed for the worse for me – although the great unravel took time. …

Non Judgement

In our physical world it is all too easy to define ourselves by the nature of our physical surroundings. Western corporate society feeds into our neurosis to be perceived as successful by selling us falsehoods such as eternal youth and superficial associated high status through materialism. Those who have no interest in pseudo enslaved success are judged lacking – I am judged lacking. In the last month I have been called both an ‘Abject Failure’ and ‘Tramp’ by folks I had hoped would know better. Sadly each of us is only able to operate from our present level of awareness so, whilst their words grate, I endeavour to shrug them off and pardon them. Ever since I can remember I have been a true free spirit. I have never taken kindly to being told what to do. As a very little girl my Mum despaired as I would come down dressed in mismatched clothes of my own choosing having been told expressly what I was to wear. At school I was singled out for being …

Spiritual Awakening

This Spiritual Awakening trip is weird and fascinating. I realise that I came late to the table and upon reflection comprehend that late equals 25 years whence I was too busy being busy trying to put bread on the table and create a feast which ultimately lead to famine. My comfy life had to seriously unravel for me to grasp that, through metaphorical starvation, I could awaken to smell the bake. Today this causes me problems as I am impatient to get on with what needs to be got on with. I am desirous of fast tracking my way too long dormant, supressed psychic gifts so as I can truly be who I realise I was always meant to be. This eagerness to progress at speed is, I know, pure folly as dipping in and out of the realm of spirit is not an undertaking to be taken lightly. It is a serious business which has the potential to be damaging to any meddlesome person without strong conviction and character. It is not a game …

Spiritual Success

I am on the cusp of launching a new venture with my partner, (recently upgraded to husband). Together we have developed a range of Spiritually Inspired Cards and a business called BrightSoul which will allow us the freedom to live life on our own terms. We are confident that BrightSoul will succeed and are content to cut our cloth relative to the success we achieve. This venture has been a long time in the making and plays to our shared strengths. For a few more years than I care to admit I have been struggling to find a way to make a living which is congruent with our desired alternative lifestyle. Specifically I was slow to react to the 2008 financial crash and clung to the sinking ship, my once lucrative vintage business, for way too long. I then developed several businesses which floundered and failed but never gave up on the dream; to create a creative portable business which allows me the freedom to work wherever I lay my hat that’s my home. Throughout …

An Artist To Inspire: Suzanna Scott

I fortuitously stumbled upon American artist Suzanna Scott on Instagram where she has a fantastic feed of her work and art process. You can follow her here (and you can follow me here!) Without knowing this lady I feel as if we are somewhat kindred spirits creatively as we are both, seemingly, fascinated by old things and express ourselves through various disciplines including stitch, collage and assemblage. Born in 1974 Suzanna Scott lives and works in Springfield Missouri where she: …explores visual ideas that are in and of the body. She continues to work with a range of materials, from stone to paper, and frequently incorporates found objects into her pieces… You can discover more about this inspiring artist here.  

Philosophy Of Life (4)

So, what about those negative, self-limiting beliefs? We are often unaware of our beliefs and operate, on a daily basis, without being conscious of our own particular limitless limiting gremlins, the cause, which have the power to influence our experience – the effect. The experience of living a life leaves us all open to the possibility of having our self-confidence and self-image eroded and through this process self-limiting beliefs are born. For some time I have been in the process of struggle to fully identify my self-limiting beliefs. I say struggle as they are sneaky snakes well camouflaged in my deepest psyche. For me, as a newbie to the thinking game , I am having trouble unpicking my experiences to date. Life, generally, is a rollercoaster of highs/lows, successes and failures – (the law of polarity in play) – and my life has been one helluva a ride! My mind is thus having difficulty identifying why at times I tasted success, (and, indeed, what is success?), and why at times I did not – surely …
