Little messages, honestly, truthfully....

The morning was the same as 
all the other mornings this April,
we sat with our mugs of tea,
the rain was pattering on the window 
for the 29th day in a row.

Dougal dog was shaking, the rain makes 
him nervous, my love lights a wood
fire to bring warmth and comfort into the lounge
the crackling and spitting logs
make Dougal shake even more.
My girl sits on the other couch, she is shaking too,
they say it could be the medication
or just that she is so anxious.

The lounge is not a pretty sight, I have started
to emulsion paint to get the place ready 
for sale, we can't afford to live
here much longer.

I write a list for the shopping and 
remind my love to make sure he gets the offers,
to which he responds,
"I'll get what I get",
to which I,

After they have gone I'm sat stunned and silent,
not at all in the mood for painting
a book rests on the arm of the couch...

this last couple of days,
after our breakfast
I have been picking it up and 
reading passages out loud from it,
reading from where the page happens to fall open,
in an effort to give my girl
some positive messages of hope for the future.
Funnily enough just opening the page randomly
seems to always  impart some wise words,
something needed at that time.

So today sitting all alone and feeling the fume over a
 tense outbreak, I turned and noticed the book,
I picked it up, opened randomly again,
and  began to read...

"the most enlightened beings throughout history,
 told us to love others, ....... give negativity to others,
you will receive negativity back"- 
 Secret the Power - Rhonda Byrne
I realised at that point
I was giving out tense, anxious and insecure vibes to
my love, which in-turn bounced right back at me!

I have a personal mantra -
'What I need will be given to me in the 'Moment'

I have been trying to maintain this attitude under severe stress,
and it has really helped me, whenever I feel a need
there seems to always be little messages
popping up, could be an uplifting comment, 
some inspiring post or video, an email
from a blogging friend or
Postcard from Paradise

Keep a lookout for your own
'little messages'.

You are not going to believe this, I have just gone to my email
LOOK at what a friend sent me at the same time
I was writing this post,
yes even the faith pic had been posted!!!

A Dog named Faith
A dog born with only two legs,
his owner was going to have him put down,
but instead felt pity and trained him to walk upright like a human!

The message ends this way ~

"In life there are always undesirable things,
so in order to feel better you just need to look at life from another direction.
Faith is the continual demonstration of the strength and wonder of life."

i have to say when i read a post so full of candor i am moved deeply. yours is a bittersweet morning transforming into understanding, compassion and renewed faith. so often our greatest challenges serve us in unexpected ways when we choose to keep our hearts open and strive for clarity. when we align ourselves with all those around us in purposeful ways.
i love you dearly. i hope the love that others offer even from afar lifts your heart and your vision. truly you are never alone.

Sue, I don't think I can add anything more relevant that the messages you are receiving from the universe.

Beautiful post and beautiful and kind messages... what a little piece of heaven in the 000111 world...

Sue, I sometimes experience that as well - finding something in my mail, read a passage in a book etc. that speaks to me in that very moments and is exactly what I need. And yes, it's true, if you send out negativity you receive negativity. In the end, it all starts with us.
Sending you a hug across the ocean.

Norwegian Dreamscape Expanded

Meditation Morn
My Dreamscape Meanderings
Heavenly pass~time 

I rose early the first morning at dawn, although I'm not sure if it was dawn really as Norway is after all the land of the midnight sun!  Anyway it was an exceptional time to experience the fjords we were told so I crept out of the cabin, being careful not to disturb my sleeping partner and up onto the open deck.   I was the first to appear, only the staff were out arranging the loungers. What a wonderful feeling almost alone on this massive liner feeling totally in awe of both my traveling home and the deep fjord waters we were slipping silently through.

I climbed up the stairs to the highest deck and stood in absolute amazement at the sheer beauty of this place, I thought I could hear some kind of faint mysterious musical notes, to this day I'm still not sure whether this was my imagination going into overdrive at the whole mystical experience or a distant melody carrying through on the air.....

Shadow Land & Spontaneity

Usually in photography I practice the concept of noticing the moments and what arises and arrives spontaneously as opposed to a staging experience i.e. purposefully choosing a subject to capture. Picking up the camera when something hits my radar of perception is second nature and this in turn mostly leads to the pleasurable treasures of intuitive photography.  Recently due to the exceptional brilliance of the autumn sun through my windows there have been lots of opportunities to capture the clarity of shadows or their subtlety for that matter! Shadow photography is a favourite form of imaging for me.  However, I wanted to make the shots a little more defined for added interest so this lead me to try manufacturing the outcome, or in other words staging!  This doesn't come naturally to me during a photography experience for it touches on the subject of control, taking me out of the comfort zone of going with a meditative flow and into the area of thinking or a cognitive interrupti…
