What's to see?

               Mirror, Mirror ......

DAY 24

What's to see?

Just the light!

This morning when I got up and looked in the mirror, for one dreadful split nano-second, there she was 'the wicked witch of the west' glowering back at me.  And boy didn't she need Botox.

Then I remembered we all see what we expect to see!  But wicked witch of the west? Perhaps it's not a good idea to drag yourself to the mirror in the cold light of dawn, especially when your mind's just getting back into gear.

Our physical eyes see what they've been indoctrinated to see, based on thoughts of not being good enough in some way or another.   Negative thoughts drag us down in seconds flat setting the pattern for the rest of the day. 

We all need to look beyond what seems to be real, but is actually an illusion. Look beyond last night's lines, bags and sags and recognise just what a marvel of creation you are. We are all light beingsx

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Day 23

Small stones,

    Hidden gems,

The world at my feet.

Yesterday was great fun.  Haven't laughed so much in ages, and haven't been over to Watford in ages either.  

Armed with my trusty bus pass, and after much umming and arrring, I took to the transport system like a duck takes to water, and had a wonderful day with a good friend I haven't seen in quite a while.  What was different?  

I decided the day was going to be magical

and.....IT WAS!

Here I was at yet another crossroads in my life, determined not to drive, yet determined to just get out. Life's for living after all!

I definitely didn't want to drive into the awful one-way traffic system, or for that matter park in car parks that actually don't give you much room for manoeuvre. Last time I was there, I wedged the car against a huge concrete pillar, and had to scramble (very undignified) over the passenger seat to get out...and of course I was already late.  If it hadn't been for a 'passing hero' I'd still be there today! He, of course, as only heroes can, managed to reverse the car without so much as a scratch. 

Yesterday's trek, I vowed was going to be different ...and much more fun....and it was.  The reason for this is quite simple; I took time out to 'Remember who I AM!'  As my writing says, the world really does lay at our feet when we remember to remember this. We are, as the saying goes, divine beings having a human experience. The bleakest of stones becomes the most radiant gem when we remember WE ARE LOVE. Let love, the foundation of our wonderful universe, be the foundation of your day.

Have a magical day

Small Stones

Ready for the Climb? What do you see?

Ready for the climb?

Hmmmm  haven't we been this way before?


DAY 21


There are many ways

 To cook an egg,


 Just give me a clue

Now let me see. What was it Neil Armstrong said when he stepped onto the moon? 'One small step for man, a gigantic one for mankind'?  Think my own steps have been leading me a merry dance, you know the one called 'ever decreasing circles'.

There's one small thing we all forget to factor into the equation, 'gravity'.  Much easier to prance around on the moon when you don't have to worry about gravity dragging you back down to earth like an avenging angel.

When we are inspired to create something, it generally takes a while for it to take shape on earth. And that's okay, because there are several stages involved in the art of manifestation. Put simply, we stand a much greater chance of success if we ease our way down the mountain-side,  rather than launch straight from the top.

Each step represents a different level of consciousness which needs to be aligned with our hearts desire. Now here's the important bit

That crossroad may look the same,
but you have just approached it
 from a different direction (level of awareness and that's good).
You are not on a treadmill.
Life is a dance a spiral,
Each time taking you closer to your destination

Now isn't the time to frump and grump and dash into the undergrowth. It's time to take stock, get out your compass,do a bit of tweaking if that's necessary. Stop! Look (really look) at the signposts! And listen to the whispers It's definitely not the moment to beat yourself up,but to give yourself a huge pat on the back, and to recognise just how far you have come.

Remember the way you approach any crossroads can make all the difference to achieving your goal. Apparently this week is the week you are most likely to give up on your new years resolutions!  You have reached a really important threshold.  Stop! Look! Listen! Remember here on earth we only have to take one tiny step at a time, but that can still make the world of a difference.

Heavens above

What is going on inside that egg?

DAY 20

Heaven only knows



                              copyright Gillian Holland 2014


Sometimes, the Universe plays a waiting game. That's infuriating, but it's part of the 'Game of Life!'

How we see the wait is all important.  While you are waiting, do you see your glass as half empty or half full, as the saying goes? Are you expecting something magical to happen, or the same old, same old?  

Magic happens in our live's when we surrender to the Divinity (heaven) within us all. That means to let go of control, allowing life to do its thing without trying to force it.

Last night I dreamed I was packing my bits and pieces up ready to move to a larger and much more comfortable space. In my dream I knew beyond any shadow of a doubt, that attitude really does make a big difference. The Universe was really taking care of me. I was clucking around a bit like a Mother Hen, creating a nest that was ready to receive a 'gift from heaven!'  What's more I was loving it.

Now this woman here, is not normally a fan of housework, so this is a huge huge shift.  The space we are given is part of the 'Game of Life'.  When we see ourselves as part of life's magic, we are actually allowing it into our lives. If you like we are preparing a loving space, rather than a fearful one, getting ready to take a gigantic step forward.

As you wait for Source energy to create its wonders, remember who you are, and therefore what you can achieve.


Connecting to Life's Magic and Mystery  Saturday 1st February  10.15 for 10.30 start - 4.30 approximately

Using a series of meditation and visualisation exercises we will celebrate this magical day Imbolc.
Discover why so many of us just give up our dreams and resolutions at this time of the year. It really is all down to the way we see ourselves. 

Connecting to the Archangel Raphael and Mother Mary Queen of the Angels, we reconnect to life's magic as well as our inner wisdom. You will also have the opportunity to work with the 6 pointed star.
This is a very relaxed day but you will have the opportunity to connect to and share your wisdom with the group.  At the end of the day you will be given Mp3 of the main exercises, for your further enjoyment.  Bring your own packed lunch, journal and blanket just in case.
There are only a few spaces left. Contact Gillian

Goodness, really struggling to find the words this morning.  So this piece says it all!!!!  I've spent lots of time toying with words, but it hasn't made the slightest difference.  So Patience has to be the name of the game. Dah!
