Whoo hoo!

Hi everyone, hope you are all keeping well.

Well, I have managed to figure out how to upload some photos, thanks to my future son-in-law, Kevin.  I know I haven’t posted in quite a while, but now I have got the hang of this a little better, I shall endeavor to commit a little more time.

So what has been happening in the Spiritual World of Lynnee?  It has been pretty exciting really (for me it has, and it depends on what you think is exciting!).  A few weeks ago, my fabulous teacher Ryan (Spirit Artist), and my lovely friend and teacher Claudia (Medium) put on a demonstration of Spirit Art combined with Mediumship.  This is just a test run because Ryan and Claudia will be doing an actual demonstration in August.  The aim of this demonstration was to see if Ryan could connect with Claudia (whom was connecting with Spirit) and see how quickly he was able to draw.  It was just amazing, and mind blowing… but there, Spirit never cease to amaze me.  Claudia connected with me and brought through an ex boyfriend of mine who passed into the world of Spirit so tragically young.  The evidence she brought forward was just so spot on, I knew it was him.  You might be questioning, well, if you are friends, Claudia probably knows this already about you.  Honestly, although we are friends, I have not known Claudia for too long and she absolutely knows nothing about my history or of my family history.  I was blown away by her evidence.  For me, it is all about proving survival after death (although there is no death, just my opinion).  As Claudia was conveying a message to me, Ryan got to link in and started drawing.

This is the first time it has been tried and so we did not really know what to expect or how it was all going to work.  Ryan managed to draw an amazing picture, it wasn’t that of the young man but it was definitely connected to him.  Ryan actually drew a picture of a family member (who is still alive, but none the less still Spirit, as we are all Spirit…whether incarnate or dis-incarnate).  There was absolutely no mistaking of who it was.  That went really well!  Ryan is just the best teacher and Claudia is just as awesome, the pair of them encouraged me and my mum to give it a go.  I have said this numerous times now, I am in awe of my mum who has just progressed in leaps and bounds.  Her picture was pretty amazing although the picture and Mediumship I gave were quite different (well, we are only practicing!).  I must say that I enjoyed giving a message more as I know I have quite a way to go with my drawings.  The night went well considering it was a trial run.  We plan to do more demonstrations, mainly to help Ryan get as much practice in, although he is awesome and so down to earth.  I feel really blessed to be such a part of a great, Spiritual Community and it’s true, you attract what you put out.  The more and more I try to stay as positive as I can and be true to myself, like minded people are now coming into my life.  It’s hard to accept that whatever does not serve your highest good, you have to let go of and maybe distance yourself.   Don’t get me wrong, I have my moments where I am quite the negative thinker (I am only human after all), but I really strive to be the best I can be and try not be so negative.  We all have our own individual path to walk on in this lifetime and it is up to each and every one of us to make the very best of what we have.  Life is not about smelling the roses day in and day out, life is life, we have our ups and we have our downs.  Through the tough days comes strength, light, self-awereness, emergence and moving forward.  We cannot always see why these things are happening to us at the time but when you reflect back honestly, you can see why it happened.  They say that ‘Hindsight is a wonderful thing.’  Sorry I feel like I am going off on a tangent.

This is a drawing I did about a month or so ago.  I am pleased with it as it was recognized as a friend of someone, who also passed when she was young.  It’s not perfect by all means but it was taken, as well as evidence given through Mediumship.  I just Love and I mean Love connecting with Spirit to bring forward evidence of survival after passing.   My goal is to practice, practice, practice, and be as awesome as my two wonderful teachers.  We are all here to help and teach one another in whatever shape or form.  Even if you only touch one soul, you know that you have done good.  There is so much negativity in this world, but little by little we can shine our own light to those who need it, and help them shine their own light and get a chain reaction going.  Imagine all those lights lighting up, it would be brilliant.

My latest drawing felt a little other worldly.  This is just my opinion, and I would be interested in what you might think (you may think I’m bonkers, but I believe that I come from a good place of Truth and Love and would never deliberately hurt anyone), but I have always had the sense of not really belonging here and have come from another place/planet, whatever you want to call it.  During meditation I have had experiences that may just indicate that this is so.  Life is so amazing and simple, yet complex.  Live every day as though it could be your last as you never know what is before you.  Let your light shine in everything you do.

May Love, Light and Truth surround you all

PS.  The opinions here are my own and I don’t for one minute think that everyone shares the same opinion as me, Continue reading “Spirit Art Photos”

Penny pinching (or actually $ pinching!)

Hello again,

It has been quite a few days (or maybe a week) since my last blog.  So, what has been happening in the Spiritual Life of Lynnee?

Well, I was graced with having my beautiful daughter Lizzie home for the weekend.  We decided that we would go to our favourite shopping mall, Cross Iron Mills, so that my handsome son could get kitted out with some new clothes.  I’m not really in a financial position to do this right now, but I figured, if I didn’t do it now, I would never do it.  So at the very last minute like at 2.00pm, we set out.  The drive was great as I love having conversations with Liz.  She is  wiser than her 24years.  I feel Lizzie and I have had many lifetimes together (if you believe in past lives).  We have such an extraordinary bond and are able to communicate telepathically with each other.  I do feel she was my mother in a previous incarnation, but the roles are reversed this time around (although she does act as though she is my mother sometimes!).  Marcus is sleeping and dribbling like a dog waiting for a treat!  When he was very young, he used to get terrible car and motion sickness, which I think is still present to this day as he has to sleep on every journey we ever embark on.  Lizzie and I love to talk about life and the world, and how everything seems right now in it.  It’s too deep for Marcus on a Spiritual level, and that kid has often told me that I need to forewarn him and make an appointment when I want to speak to him on that kind of level.  Marcus is very academic and it comes very naturally to him with little effort.  Common sense on the other hand, doesn’t quite come so naturally.  He has a brilliant mind and in all fairness has his moments of deep meaningful conversations.  I would love to view the world through his eyes and mind.  Lizzie on the other hand has to work just a little harder than Marcus, but accomplishes everything she puts her heart and soul into.  Common sense comes more naturally to her and is very much a deep thinker.  I am so proud of the way my kids have turned out.  They are two beautiful (inside and out) human beings.  That I always give gratitude for.

Anyways, we arrive at Cross Iron Mills a little over an hour later.  The first store we hit is the Pro Bass store.  God, I am in heaven.  I just love this store.  Well what do you know, I see work pants/trousers for my husband at such a good bargain price, I cannot leave them there.  I was under orders not to buy him anything as I was on a budget to get Marcus his clothes.  I’m sorry, at that price, I cannot leave them there, I will deal with my husband when I get home!  When you exit Pro Bass, you hit the mall.  Yay, I love it.  There are so many different stores and outlets to choose from.  I am always looking for bargains (maybe it’s because we never had much growing up), and that means traipsing around every store until we find that one!  Lizzie is up for it but Marcus isn’t too happy (is it a male thing?)  Marcus seems to think I have an endless supply of paper in my wallet and doesn’t think twice about paying full price for something.  My wallet is full of paper alright, paper receipts and other shit that just collects and adds up, not quite the paper he has in mind.  We literally go to every store, he tries on clothes here and there and he knows what he wants.  The only problem with that is, that he does need a bit of fashion advice.  He certainly will not accept my advice (because I am 46), but he will listen to his sister, only problem there is…Lizzy and I have the same tastes in clothes (haha).  To cut a long story short (if that is possible), Marcus settles on some very nice Jack Jones Jeans ($20), a stylish black denim jacket from Forever 21 ($36), 2pairs of jeans from Lucky Brand ($50) and a nice pair of jogging/lounge pants from winners  ($25).  Needless to say that I had one happy child at the end of that shopping trip.  Lizzie bought herself some beautiful dresses too.  It would be so nice to be able to go shopping and not have to think about the prices of things, but for me it is exciting to try and bag a bargain without compromising quality.  It makes me appreciate all that I have and more.  After shopping, we go and get some supper.  This I feel is such a burden to me and gives me a bit of anxiety as I have become Dairy, Wheat, Gluten and Meat intolerant (oh yes, this is absolutely another story).  However, I do find some rice and some vegetables to eat, all I might add were very flavourful (I am sick and tired of eating salad as I swear I am beginning to have buck teeth and am  growing a long pair of ears!), and then we head out to go home.  Not bad, I put a budget of $150 for Marcus and had change of $19.

What about my husband?  I know how to get around him (wink wink).  He was very happy with his new work pants/trousers!

So, the next day, Lizzie and I decide to walk down to the store as it was such a beautiful day.  I cannot go anywhere without bathing in Off Spray.  For anyone wondering what Off Spray is, it is a spray designed to keep insects and tics off of you.  Lizzie and I have very bad reactions to any bites and it usually ends up us having antibiotics.   Besides which, it stops me from doing a funny dance everywhere I go, when being attacked by mosquitoes.  Story of my life really at how sensitive I am to everything.  Anyway, we get to the store, and I have $22 in my wallet.  I am going to see what I can get for dinner today to feed the four of us.  Wow, I go in and I have to say that the items I pick up (cucumber, apples, lettuce, peanuts, 4 baking potatoes, bananas, and tomatoes), are cheaper than the next town over that have grocery stores.  So I’m adding everything up (to the best I can), and in my mind it comes to like about $21.  I’m so happy with that and proceed to go to the checkout.  All of my groceries get rung through and the lady tells me it comes to $59.  What?  Now I don’t know if this is a British thing, but I thought, I wasn’t going to argue about it as I may have genuinely overspent.  I will wait and take a look at the receipt.  So I pull out my little plastic friend and begrudgingly paid.   With that, I took everything and proceeded to walk away and said to Lizzie that I thought the shopping came to too much.  She agreed and we stopped to look at the receipt.  Holy cow! I was only charged $40 for my lettuce!  I know I should have questioned it there and then at the till, but you know what it’s like, sometimes you actually make the mistake and it gets so embarrassing that you run out of the store in shame and hope to never return! For $40 a lettuce, I went back.  The lady apologized profusely and I was quickly given a refund.  No harm done.  We have a lovely supper of baked potatoes, tuna and salad and fruit for dessert.  It seems to me that when I have money, I am not too careful about where it goes, and when I am on a budget, I absolutely watch where every penny goes.  I think my lesson in life is to watch where every penny goes  (whether I have money or not).  Make it work in the best way possible (I’m working on it).

I would absolutely love to hear of any embarrassing stories you have had at the grocery or any store, where either you have made a mistake or someone else has made a mistake.

Have a great day

Spirit Art

Good morning everyone, I hope that you are all well and having a great day, wherever you may be right now.

So I did go to Spirit Art last night.  This class really feeds the very core of my soul.  To be honest, everything Spiritual that allows me to be of Service to others, truly feeds my soul.  The art class is held every Friday evening and it takes me about an hour or so to get there.  The drive is good as I have my mum for company.  I am really surprised by my mum, she really loves this class too.  Her drawings are very good, and each week that we both go we have seen significant improvements.  I would love to post a drawing, but as I have said before, I am technologically  challenged and am waiting for Kevin to come and help me learn to navigate my way around.  Typing is the only thing that I can do for now!  Usually it has been just my mum and me at the class with a few people turning up here and there.  We feel guilty when this happens as our fabulous teacher Ryan is always there regardless.  Ryan is a fantastic teacher as well as an awesome artist.  His Spirit Portraits are amazing and I strive to be just as good as him one day.  On the other hand, it may sound a little selfish, but when it is just the two of us, we get one to one tuition!

Last night four other people turned up which was great.  I didn’t feel too anxious as I had met them all prior to the class.  Beings they were new to the class they all sat near the front as to be able to hear and follow Ryan.  My mum and I sat at the end of the tables at the back.  Ryan will let us do what we feel inspired to do as we have had a few more lessons than the others.  He takes us through a wonderful meditation revolving around colours and getting us to connect with our Artist Spirit Guides.  Honestly, I really could not do this without the help of my Spirit Guide (of whom I have done a portrait of) as I cannot draw for toffee, let alone do faces!  I asked my guide to use me as a channel and to guide my hand.  As I began to draw, I thought that I must be drawing a lady (you start with the eyes, then eyebrows, nose, mouth, chin, cheeks, head, ears and hair).  I was convinced it was a lady until I got to the hair part.  It is funny how Spirit guide you because I wanted to put a fedora on the head but I also wanted a fascinator too.  I tried to find a picture of a fascinator but Spirit was insistent that I put a fedora on the head.  Then I knew I had a gentleman with me.  As I am drawing this, I start to get some mediumship and am told which person in the room I am connected to.  When we are all done drawing, Ryan asks if we would like to talk about our drawings.  When it came to mine, I showed everyone, and the lady I felt connected to was looking at it as if she felt there was a connection.  I gave her the message and knew I had a Spirit lady with me and the gentleman whom I had drawn.  Due to confidentiality for that person, I have to say that the drawing and message was well received.  The drawing wasn’t perfect but I am practicing to get there.  I feel honoured and blessed to be able to develop my gift and to blend with Spirit.  Again, it touches the very core of my soul when I have been able to touch the soul of another.  Spirit is Love and Love is what pushes us forward.  Who knows where this will lead to?  To even touch one person in this lifetime is an achievement, but I hope to touch as many other souls out there before my time comes to depart this world.

As soon as I am able to, I would absolutely love to share my drawings with you.  I will get on to it!  Well, that is all for today.  I hope that you all have a wonderful day and that many blessings come into your life.

I would be interested in any comments about how life is going for you right now and where you are at, or for any encounters that you have had that have touched your soul.

The last few days

Hi everyone,

I am so technologically challenged.  Have tried to insert a picture but don’t know how to do it lol.  It will take me some time (and I mean, some time) to figure all of this out.  For now, I only know how to write (debatable!).  I am not going to give up though, although I really do feel like I should as I have no clue as to what I’m doing!

Actually, that is the story of my life right now.  The last few days (weeks, even months) I have been questioning “What is the purpose of my Life?” If I’m completely honest, I am not really happy at where I am right now.  Could it be because I am 46 years old?  Creeping up to the big 50.  I’m not sure age has anything to do with it, but the older I am getting, I do think that there must be more to life than just going to work to pay bills (and that is all it is doing, just paying the bills).  It is not affording any luxuries, and at the same time I like to pride myself on being non-materialistic.  I do like the simple things in life like, going for a walk, spending time with my family, being in nature, photography and reading.  All these things are free.  They don’t cost an arm and a leg to do and are easily attainable.  So why do I feel like I do?  Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to sound like a Debbie Downer as I have lots to be thankful for, but I do need to find something that drives that passion within.

The one thing that drives me is being of service to others, helping those who need it,  whether materially (if I can) or Spiritually.  I am an intuitive and developing medium.  I really try to lead a Spiritual Life as much as I can and am aware of my thoughts, actions and deeds.  I try to practice what I am given by Spirit and absolutely Love the Teachings of Silver Birch.  I am human, and I posses a lot of human traits but I am self aware enough to catch what I am thinking or doing.  I believe that Life should be our Religion, the way we interact with one an other.  As long as we are not deliberately harming one another and being of service whenever we can, we could all get along smoothly (maybe that is just a fantasy, but anyhow).  I am open to everything and anyone, regardless of class, gender, creed, religion etc.  I may not agree with somethings but I like to learn.  I feel that is what we are here to do on earth is Learn.  Things happen to us for maybe reasons we cannot see at the time, but there always comes a learning from that experience (that may become more clear as time moves on) to help us grow as individuals.  Sometimes we may have really tough, traumatic experiences… I do believe that we are never given more that we can possible handle (that is my own opinion), but without these experiences we cannot grow and be of service to others in similar situations.    Life hasn’t been that easy for me (but whose life is?), I know one thing, I wouldn’t change it for all the tea and china in the world.  I have drawn great strength from my experiences and hopefully I have been able to help others in similar situations.

Sorry, I feel as if I go off on tangents.  Please feel free to comment and share some of your experiences.  I’d like to hear about where you are in life right now and what drives you.

So, back to the Last few Days!  I have began a development circle at home.  What, you may ask is one of those?  Many of you would probably know what it is but for those of you who don’t…. There are six of us who currently sit.  It is a time where we pray, meditate, give thanks and gratitude and open ourselves up to the Divine.  We open ourselves to connect to the highest source, with Spirit Guides and Loved Ones coming to help us along on our Spiritual Path, whether it be through Philosophy or messages.  It is a time for listening, connecting and learning.  God (however you perceive your God) is all about Love.  Love is what should be most prevalent in this world, not money, not greed.  Spirit come with much Love and Compassion and no Judgement.  God does not judge, we are our own worst enemies when judging ourselves.  The majority of us know right from wrong and the consequences from making right or wrong choices.  Unfortunately, there are people out there who really don’t know right from wrong.  Some people genuinely cannot see a consequence for an action until it actually happens.  We are all unique individuals and who are we to judge anyone else?  Experience enables us to be of service to others.  The circle enables us to come together as friends, as family and as kindred souls, learning to raise our vibrations to connect with Spirit.  One thing I am sure of is…We live, We die (well, it is just my belief that our Spirit lives on when our shell of a body dies).  I give gratitude for the Love, Laughter and Insights we all share.  Being sensitive, I am sensitive to everything, like- loud noises, light, people, energy, smells surroundings, food etc.  It becomes a bit of a hindrance at times because I will withdraw into the comfort of my own home and am just content with my own company and that of my family too.  How can I be of service to others when I lock myself away?

I also sit another circle somewhere else.  That has changed from being a  meditation group to a developing mediumship group.  People have gone and people have come.  I’m not really sure if I have an anxiety disorder either as last night I felt really anxious.  There were a few familiar faces and few who were not as familiar.  I started to panic and felt like I needed to excuse myself, it took everything I had to stay where I was (and because it takes me more than an hour to get home!).  Don’t get me wrong, we are all there for the same reason (well, I hope we are), but my ego gets in the way.  Instead of letting everything flow naturally, my ego is having a big battle with my brain. Thoughts of I’m not as good as everyone else, they are more developed than I am, What if I don’t get anything?  There is that little voice inside that tells me to relax and trust.  Again, we are all different and at different levels.  No-one can be the same, it doesn’t mean we are no better or no worse.  We have all come for the same reason, and that is to connect to the Divine and the Spirit World.  Without Spirit, I would not be able to do this work.  Spirit came and gave evidence that was accepted by the recipient.

What am I trying to convey here?  Well, I know I need a career change in where I can be of more service to others.  I need a more Spiritual direction.  I know I will figure it out.  Friendship and being around others would also be good for me as I have enjoyed these last couple of days connecting with people on a more Spiritual level.  I had some colleagues over this morning for tea, biscuits and a chat.  Tonight I will be going to Spirit Art (that could be another topic to write about), to connect with Spirit and meet up with friends that I have made there already.  Maybe as I type this, I am actually on my way to achieving the life that I would love to have, I just have to keep going!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Procrastination

Hello everyone,

I know it’s been a few days since I started my first blog, but what has been happening in my ordinary Spiritual Life?  Well, on Thursday, I was getting ready to go to work (how eventful was that you may ask?)  Oh it was eventful alright!  I had just finished putting my lunch together for work when I realized that urgent call of nature was beckoning.  Desperately, I turned and headed towards the bathroom, turned the corner and I must have had a dizzy spell because…. BAM, I fell to the floor like I had just been knocked out by Mike Tyson.  Boy did I fall down.  My son is in the next room wondering what the hell is going on as he could hear all the moaning (not pleasurable moaning) and cursing.  It’s not as if he came running either to see what was going on, or to see if I had broken anything.  We can establish one thing, I wasn’t dead!  He just shouted “What are you doing?”  as if this was an inconvenience for him.  Through pained moans I informed him that I had  fallen down and really hurt myself.  His response was “Do you need any help?”  To which I replied that I was good and was going to get up when I was ready.   What really happened, I’m not quite sure.  One minute I was okay and the next I felt dizzy and went down.  Is this a sign of things to come?  Could this be because I’m getting older and funny things start happening to our bodies?  Well whatever it was, I knew I wasn’t going to be fit to go to work as I couldn’t run the risk of having another dizzy spell when driving and supporting the great people I work with.  With that, I called in sick and went back to bed.  I was not up to writing as I couldn’t think clearly.

Friday came (I have Friday’s off) and I stayed in bed until noon.  Think my body might be telling me something but I think I might be trying to ignore it.  The reason I got out of bed was because my lovely daughter had called round.  Feeling guilty (about still being in bed) I hollered down to her that I would get up and make some lunch.  I am so proud of my daughter as she works so hard.  We sat and chatted as we had lunch.  I don’t know what it is but she really lights up my life, she feeds my soul Spiritually.  Although being 24 years old, she is very wise and enlightened, definitely an old soul.  After lunch, Lizzie suggested that I may want to watch ‘The Kindness Diaries’ with Leon Logothetis.  We made ourselves comfortable and tuned in.  Needless to say, we watched the whole season!  What a truly inspiring program of one man’s quest to travel the world on his motorbike called ‘Kindness One’ … relying on the kindness of people he would meet on his way as he did not have any money for food or accommodation.  I do know that it is always the people who have the least that give the most, and if you watch this you will see some patterns.   I was very touched by the second episode (you have got to watch it) and didn’t expect I would end up blubbering.  What I didn’t anticipate was, that, the people who really touched Leon’s heart would be given something in return for their kindness (okay, you have really got to watch this!).  Talk about restoring faith in humanity.  There are lots of good people out in this world who are very giving, and kind-whether they have enough or not themselves.  We only have to look and open our eyes up to the beauty that is in this world, and there truly is an amazing amount.  I thought about writing this on Friday but ‘Life’ and family got in the way (namely, I was procrastinating).

My daughter thought that we should get up at stupid o clock to watch the Royal Wedding on Saturday, although not being a typical royalist, it sounded like a good idea.  I am so glad that I managed to wake up to watch it.  It was a lovely wedding.  They had the people  there that they wanted to share their big day with, and not one politician, bar for the ex one but who has interests in Harry’s charity.  Meghan’s dress was beautiful and she looked absolutely stunning.  I really liked the fact that there was a lot of colour at this wedding.  Bishop Michael Curry’s address on Love was just the best.  Seems to be a bit of a theme for me these last few days (LOVE).  What a beautiful wedding, I sincerely wish Harry and Meghan a bright, happy future together.  They are going to do a lot of good for a lot of people just like Harry’s mother (the late Princess Diana) and Meghan’s mum (Doria Ragland).  These two strong women set a foundation for this lovely couple from a young age, and may they continue the legacy for many years to come.  Again, I was going to write about this but (not sure if it’s procrastination or laziness now!) but got sidetracked into cleaning the house.

Sunday was uneventful, trying to clean and de-clutter the house.  Why is it that whenever you try and clean a room, it looks like more has turned up than when first started?  I am trying to clear one little space at at time as it is not too overwhelming and I feel that it is achievable.  If you are like me, I don’t like housework.  Surely there is more to life than working and houseworking! I feel life goes by me when I am stuck indoors trying to keep the many cobwebs from reappearing.  Am I living my life to the fullest?  I can honestly say that at this moment in time, I am not.  However, I am thankful and give gratitude for all that I have in my life right now.

Monday.  Had to pop into the local town to get groceries for dinner.  Lizzie and her boyfriend are coming over.  Bless her, she has worked hard all day but has offered to come and mow our lawns for us.  In return they are going to stay for supper (it’s the least I could do).  I cherish every moment spent with my kids as I know they are almost at the point of leaving home to embark on their journeys in life.  I am then going to become an empty nester.  How many of you are empty nester’s?  How do you manage?  What is life like for you?  I have tried to imagine what it is going to be like, and part of me thinks it will be awesome as I get to spend more time with my husband (I actually Love spending time with him!).  Then another part of me will be sad not having my kids around, but I wish them both well on their journeys.  I will just look forward to seeing them when I do, although I am being a bit presumptuous as my son has a few more years in school yet.  I was actually honoured today as he came to grocery shop with me and actually got out of the car to go into the store.  Normally he is in cognito and slithers down as far as he can go into the seat of the van, as so that nobody will recognize him! Maybe he is having a change of heart because I’m getting older!  Anyways, we have a great visit with Lizzie and Kevin, and it is thanks to Kevin that I am writing this morning.  I know I have been procrastinating, not just on this but on other things in my life too.  It’s time to make changes, but the changes start with me.  I know I am Blessed and Loved and give Gratitude for everything in my life.  Have to stop here as I’m going to be late for work.

Before I go, just be aware of all the good that there is in this world and the many blessings you have in your life.  Have a great day everyone, until next time.

A surprising turn of events

So, this morning I woke up late (or rather,  I deliberately ignored my alarm) for work.  I literally had about one and a half hour to get ready.  I wasn’t really feeling in the best of spirits and quite honestly I was presuming what my day was going to look like, not quite roses and wine!  I’m not sure where this is coming from as I do Love my job but I also feel Spiritually Unfulfilled.

Anyways, I literally jump out of bed (as if a spider has just fallen down from the ceiling), and head for the shower.  Unbeknownst to me, my son is in the same predicament as I am in, only he has to get to school.  He yells with all that he has within him and says that he has to shower too.  I tell him not to be long as I need to shower too and I want some hot water left.  I don’t know about you, but having a teenage kid who needs to shower, it’s going to be painfully long.

well, surprise, surprise, he didn’t take that long.  Off he went to school (it’s a good job he can drive as he missed the bus too) and I finished getting ready for work.  So whilst I am getting ready, I always give gratitude for everything in my life, for example, my husband (who brings me a cup of tea in bed, every morning without fail), my two beautiful kids, my lovely home, etc…I think you get the idea.  As I’m giving gratitude I change my attitude and pray that my day is going to be great and I am going to make it great, and off I go to work.

I love my morning commute as it gives me time to reflect on things that are going on in my life, and it also grounds me as I am so blessed as to where I live.  The scenery is absolutely amazing and stunning.  Now I am at work for the rest of the day.

I finish work and head on home.  The weather is boiling, but my drive is relaxing and I now have time to reflect on my day.  First of all,  my day turned out better than I initially anticipated.  I truly believe that by turning my negative thoughts into more positive thoughts, it turned my whole day around.  There is something to be said about feeling positive and like attracting like.  New connections and friendships were formed (would they have been if thinking negatively?)  and it ended up being a very productive work day.   I gave thanks for such a great day and know that tomorrow is a new day and can be just as great.

It just goes to show, what we think doesn’t necessarily have to be.  We are creators of our own reality, whether positive or negative.  We have control over the way and how we think.  It doesn’t really surprise me when you think positively, positive things happen..but it did surprise me how my day turned around for the good of everyone today.

Good Afternoon

Hello everyone (or hello to someone!),

Welcome to Lynnee’s Spiritual Life Blog.  I am so new to this, so I ask that you bear with me until I get a real feel as to what I’m actually doing.  So a little bit about myself (without boring you).  I am a woman who is a few years off of hitting the big 50.  Does this freak me out?  Not really, I am comfortable with where I am at age wise.  What about you?   I would love to hear your thoughts on being 50.  Is the saying really true, that life begins at 50?  Are you dreading reaching half a century or are you like me, just embracing what is to be?  I have a wonderful husband whom I believe is my Soul Mate.  If you believe in Fate, then we were absolutely meant for each other.  We have two beautiful children  (girl and boy), which I give gratitude for every day.   Life has not been easy for me, but then, life is not easy for a lot of people.  I believe (and this is just my opinion) that we are born to learn and experience things  (whether good or bad) in order for our own Spiritual Growth.

These last few years I have been on a very interesting journey regarding my health.  I wonder if it is age related and wonder if anyone else is going through the same thing as me?  I would love to hear any stories you might have regarding your health too.  One thing I do know is, it is happening for a reason, although I’m not sure what that reason is just yet.   I know that I am Dairy, Wheat, Gluten and Meat intolerant!  The results at the doctor’s did not indicate that this was the case, but I assure you, that when I eat these things, the consequences are dire.  At the moment I am feeling a little sorry for myself as sometimes my eyes are bigger than my stomach.  Yes, I do grab, and I mean (first one in there), grab the slice of pizza that is making my mouth salivate, more than that of a rabid dog – shove it in my mouth (barely touching the sides) and guzzle it down.  Oh boy, did I really enjoy it?  Not really.  It doesn’t taste like it used to taste (it’s still the same pizza), could it be because I haven’t had one in such a long while?  Was it worth it?  No, now I know what the consequences are going to be.  I am really ill.  I have stomach cramps, feel as if I want to throw up and am in the bathroom nearly all day.  It is really hard as I do not function well, after.  Why is it, that when we know something isn’t good for us we just do it anyway?  Is that an addiction I have or just no will power?  So, it is choices that determines the outcome.  Had I stayed within my healthy eating choices (fruit, Vegetables etc), but in all honesty, who really wants to eat healthy all the time?  Yes, there are those of you who have embraced the healthy eating and can stick to it without any issue, I give you a huge kudos.  For me, I regress and fall “off the wagon”.

Sometimes it gets too much as I have no idea what to cook as even Vegan cooking has wheat in it.  I get so disheartened that I really feel like giving up eating (not that I encourage anyone to do this) as food is not exciting or flavourful anymore.  Don’t get me wrong, I love fruit and vegetables, but day in day out gets a bit boring for me.   At this moment in time I am on a quest to find exciting new recipes (Pintrest has become my new best friend), feel free to share any ideas with me as I truly want to feel more energetic.  So that is a little (more than a little!) about me.  I love to write and love to put humour into my writing.  As I said, I am not sure where my blogging is going to go, but I sincerely hope (even if one person looks at this) that I will be able to generate a discussion.  Oh my, I just nearly ended up deleting the whole thing and thinking, “That’s it, I’m giving up before I’ve even started.”  Good job I saved it!
