A ÔĽŅCleansing Shower

I feel the blue run through me, cleansing as it does.

The waters washing over me, falling from above.

I close my eyes and imagine, it enters through my crown.

The colours of the chakras now, seeping all around.

A cleansing shower is perfect, just to visualise.

Starts the day off so nicely, why not have a try.


I always wash any worries away like this, hop in the shower or submerge myself in the bath and just visualise the water doing its work. Water is a powerful element and we are made up of a good deal of this magical substance so it’s quite natural that it is useful in cleansing rituals.

Water is known to purify crystals, washing away any negativity that’s collected and taking them back to their natural state, why would it not do the same with us.

Think of all the things water is used for, washing right? Even when we drink it we are washing out our systems. It dilutes stronger substances, it supports life and it provides a natural song. Think of the lapping of the waves on the beach, the sound of rain or a bubbling brook, can you hear the music?

The key I think is the visualisation, imagining it running through us clearing away blockages, getting into all the dark spots.

Air, Fire and Earth can be used in similar ways, think about planting flowers or vegetables, blowing out the cobwebs or lighting a candle or sending a flame to the sky.

Don’t you think these elements are taken for granted a little when they can be put to so much good use by incorporating into our lives through visualisation?

Let me know how you get on or quite simply if you think I’m mad ūüėČ



I’m screaming at the walls,¬†

but I still sit here alone.

Tell me when you’re coming,¬†

I need you back at home.

Surprise me if you want to, 

I’ll manage it if you like.

I’m expecting you to visit me,¬†

and I’m hoping for tonight.

You left without arrangements, 

just passed without a word.

I’m watching closely for you,¬†

and it’s probably absurd.

But I’m lonely here without you,

everything is just so black.

Could you please just drop by,

just talk and I’ll talk back.

I’m hoping that you’ll hear me,

maybe show me that you do.

If you want to see some others,

I’ll be sure they are here too.

The walls are now just speechless,

they’ve enough of being white.

Tell me that you’re coming please,¬†

you’ll visit with me tonight.




So what does a breakdown feel like,

does it start off first with the shakes.

When you struggle trying to function,

as you don’t want to make a mistake.


Then pretending that you’re coping,

will those spiders inside go away.

When you wake tomorrow morning,

will it ever be just another day.


And what can you do to calm down,

if your nerves have a mind of their own.

If you forget the most bloody obvious,

like the telephone number of your home.


As you burst into tears on the doorstep,

that’s if you ever get near to that door.

Will it ever really come to fruition,

that you won’t get bashed anymore.


Then there’s those positive mantras,

about all being part of lives plan.

Sing them and pray to the heavens,

but it won’t really change a dam.


So what does a break down feel like,

might it be confused with a cold.

Will honey and lemon help here,

as she’s prepared to do as she’s told.



I’m just thinking about¬†different emotions today, I’m fine ūüôā


Big Question

Who is in the centre of all being,

at the root of all that is now.

Who controls the sun and moon,  

they must be moved somehow.

Which religion has it just right,

or are they clutching at straws.

Who is it watching over us,

is anyone keeping the scores.

I ask how the weathers dictated,

what are the reasons for rain.

Who is it that greets our arrival,

is it them that sends us again.

Who is at the centre of being,

are they helped in their task.

Is there a system of assistance,

I do hope and pray that it lasts.

So then I think of a hierarchy,

is there anyone standing in line.

Suppose I’ll see when I get there,

as it’s just only a matter of time.

At the Centre

What is real is at the heart centre of each of us, it is the pure self. The self that is emptiness, the self that is timeless and beyond anything else. To be truly aware of oneself, one should attempt to seek the silence within, the pure state of consciousness that is at the centre of everything that is.

Easier said than done with the constant chatter of the mind to distract us. How many times do we put off meditation because of something external that distracts us. The walk in nature interrupted by thoughts of the city or just pure self sabotage. How often do we actually breath with awareness and take time out of life to find ourselves.  

The heart centre is the very essence of being that the mind does not want us to find.

Nature Lessons 185

¬†Just like the flower needs to pull from it’s roots to survive,¬†we need to stop being so top heavy in only¬†relying¬†on what goes on in our heads. ¬†We need to start working, as in nature, more with the whole body, responding to those messages from the root, heart and soul.¬†

I’m having to jiggle things round a bit,

for future plans I have to make.

There’s things I need to sort out now,

with some decisions to be made.

With my life just like a jigsaw puzzle,

some shapes not fitting into place.

I’ll ¬†think about the sharp edges first,

before I fill that middle space.

I’ll have to make the picture clear,

so I’ll see where it is I’m going.

I so need a future that is easier now,

I really  want it to be flowing.

I’ll continue to jiggle it around,

until I’m certain I have it right.

Some bits are a little harder to fit,

the space for them is tight.

A Place of Being

There are so many things I’ve wanted to be and so many things I’ve been.  

Do we ever really know what’s good for us or where our life is going. Maybe it’s just about remaining open to adventure, open to experience and learning. If life is a lesson then I’m a good way through, I’ve taken note along the way and taken part in some practical experiments. I have photographic evidence and have made a number of conclusions. Millions of thoughts have crossed my mind and a number of questions have been answered.

I have not reached the outcome yet but I’m closer to understanding what it might look like. I’ve evolved, transformed and renewed and continue to do so in the hope that I might at some point reach a place of being.

To Let go of Control


However much we try we are not able to control our lives, we may believe we are in control but we are not, it’s just that at the present time the universe might be working with us. ¬†It’s difficult to let go and trust, trust that all will work out and we will end up where we should. ¬†We are programmed from an early age to reach out and take what we want in life, get a good education, good job, find a partner and produce the perfect family. ¬†We are told from a very early age that we are in control and if anything goes wrong, does not go to plan then it is down to us. ¬†We are our own judge and jury and quite easily condemn ourselves believing somehow that everything has gone wrong is our own stupid faults.

Is the flower in control when it does not rain, is the washing on the line responsible for the downpour. ¬†Let’s think about it for a moment and see what the world around us can show us. A fire goes out when there is nothing left to burn but it is incapable of getting it’s own fuel, do you think the fire blames itself, of course not, the thing to blame if there is anything is the man that let the fire go out. ¬†You see, we humans are programmed to take the blame. ¬† But we cannot be responsible for everything that happens to us, all we can do is try our very best.

When things go wrong, there is very little we can actually do if they are meant to go wrong, if they are not actually wrong but destined to happen. ¬†It’s a chain of events as I see it because if something goes wrong for one person it is very often going right for someone else. ¬†Think about it, only one person can get the job, the house, the car, and for every success there is likely to be a disappointment. ¬†Thought about this way it’s easier to see why things don’t go right all the time, things need to be shared out. ¬†The rain might not be falling on the flower because the cloud has burst somewhere else it is needed, sometimes we have to wait our turn.

If we can let go of the need to control and believe that things happen for a reason life is much easier to bare.  If there is someone or something up there listening to our prayers, surely they have a list, like any other job, they will have to prioritise.  Yet do we ever pray for something when the time is right, not really we pray when we need something.

We can still hope for the right outcome, we can still wish but just as there is night and day there will be ups and downs in life and this really is probably what it is all about. ¬†Taking each day as it comes, rejoicing in what we do have and remaining hopeful for what may or may not come. ¬†Sometimes those things we fear are the biggest blessings, if we can only let go of our need to control and realise we are all in this together, we will get what we need even if it isn’t immediately obvious when it comes. ¬†The key to this I think is trusting and letting go, be happy for the rain when it falls and sun when it shines because somewhere it’s needed.
