Whisperings of New Beginnings

Halloween marks  the beginning
of a whole new Celtic cycle,
The Celtic day begins at night.
In dark silence comes whisperings
of new beginnings,
the stirring of the seed
below the ground.
November Eve known to us as Halloween
on the night of October 31st,
is the most magical time of the year.
After the darkness comes the light.
At time for remembering those
who had passed on and the
celebration of what was to come.

may the road Rise up to meet you

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.

May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home
And may the hand of a friend always be near.
And until we meet again,
May the universe treat you kindly.

The Magic of the Bon Fire

The  flames of the Bonfire 
mark a time of renewal and new beginnings, 
giving a feeling of the kindling of new dreams, 
projecting hopes for the year to come. 

In days gone by prayers were written 
and cast into the flames of the bonfire
with the belief that the flames would
lift the prayers upwards and 
so the prayers would be answered.

Still today fire has a way of cleansing
the powers of releasing emotions 
by writing and burning the notes
with great effect are well known .

I believe...

"I believe in pink.
 I believe laughing is the best calorie burner.
I believe in kissing; kissing a lot. I believe in 
being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. 
I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. 
I believe that tomorrow is another day,

 and I believe in miracles."

- Audrey Hepburn

Healing your Heart

Does your heart ache?
Hold it gently like you 
would a baby bird.

Heal your heart
hold it gently in your loving hands,
care for it just as you would a friend.

Think of your heart as a baby bird,
lost cold and alone,
you would take that baby bird 
cradle it in your hands,
holding it gently.
Whispering softly with tenderness,
patiently wishing it well again.
With warmth, care and hope.

When your heart is troubled,
care for it just as you would a baby bird.
Allow yourself time to heal,
nurture your heart with loving thoughts.

Whisper softly, to yourself;
All will be well soon,
I love you and 
know you have the strength 
to continue.

Hit it with your best shot!

Put  your very best into
Everything you do in life
You will have few regrets.

Enthusiasm is the spark
Of life that sets a person free.
To truly experience life we need
To reach out and live life.

We can choose to take part
in all that life offers
Or we can give up and
become an on looker.

Live life with feeling,
If you deny your feelings
you are denying the truth.

To achieve anything in life we need
To be able to handle the setbacks and
Face our future with an open and eager heart.

Do not be disheartened by
the lessons of yesterday
But learn from them –
with each failure comes the
Possibility of another chance.

Enthusiasm gives you the energy
to achieve harmony and success.
 Without enthusiasm an idea has no life.
With it the possibilities are endless.

Ideals are Like Stars..

Ideals are like 
stars up in the sky,
something that we aim for 
surprising ourselves 
when we reach them.

Let's take a lesson from the 
 mariners of old.
Using the stars to chart their way
through storm-tossed dangerous seas.

The ancient mariners never gave up 
keeping their gaze focused on the stars
they travelled onwards towards their goal.

Shine a little light on life
and use your ideals to
Lift your heart and spirits high
Chart your course through life.

Forget me not...

Forget me not,

A little of me will always be with you.
Think of me and I will be there,
Just as your heart beats I remain,
Call out and I will answer
On the wing of your prayer.

My heart will be with you
spurring you on to do the things
your heart would have you do.
Be brave, know that I may not be
with you in body but my spirit remains.

Hold the memories of yesterday close
but go out and make new memories
just as if I was there by your side.

Call out and I'll answer your call.
Reach for my hand, I will catch you if stumble.
Face each new day with a smile on your face.
I may be gone but I will always be in your heart.

Help Yourself to Happiness

Help yourself to happiness,
it is within your reach.
Everybody, everywhere
yearns for a little happiness.

It is easy to tune into the news
and become disheartened
in the uncertain times in which we live.
That is why we need to make an effort 
to seek out the small things that bring joy.

Take time to think of others.
In bringing joy to the world around you
you will reap the rewards of happiness.

Happiness is a state of mind
Within reach of everyone.
The joy you give away
will return to shine on you.
