Itโ€™s been a week

And I am back. I want to start by saying a great big thank you to everyone that has visited my blog, I have had an influx of new subscribers and it’s so funny because I see a new one and I think, hmmmmm yup the Universe is reminding me I’m here to say something, I’m here to teach and here to help. So I want to say thank you, I truly appreciate you taking time out of your day to read my posts and subscribe.

So on Sunday I got my reminder that I have a blog post to do today and then this morning I had another reminder, (love technology and setting reminders) and I’ve been thinking I didn’t have anything to write about. Then as I was with my chickens outside I realised I do. It’s wonderful how when you shut off thechatterbrain what you can hear and pick up.

I’ve had an interesting day today, it has been filled with variety and I’ve loved it.

I started off with my ritual meditation this morning, then headed off to catch up with a beautiful friend of mine at one of my closer little towns and it was great to see her. When I got home my darling hubby turned up and asked if I could I help him, I had some wages to pay, so did that first, then headed off with him to shovel lupins. I ended up sweeping, not shovelling ๐Ÿ˜. After that he had to go drive a tractor so I was blessed enough to go on it with him for a couple of hours. When I got home the weather was glorious, so I went outside and had a cup of tea, watered my garden and fed our animals, hung out washing, came in put dinner on and got the house ready for the evening. That’s it….well until my two gorgeous family members that are home will come in for dinner.

I feel so blessed to be able to have this glorious life. I feel like I have so many opportunities and I have such a wonderful and understanding husband who supports my decisions and believes in me totally. There certainly are those moments where I would like life to be a little different, and that’s one of the things that makes those sweet moments in life so sweet.

Yesterday we were blessed with such a splendid sunset and then today, farmlife, absolutely love it ๐Ÿ’— the clouds in this sunset were amazing and the colours were so vibrant. #nofilter

Thought I’d share a little video with you that I took while the seeder bin was being filled up.

That’s it from me today. I hope you enjoyed seeing a little of my world. I’ve still got my reminders for next week, so I’ll be back then and I look forward to sharing something else with you then.

A little about farm life

It’s April, time to start thinking about seeding (planting). We have one crop a year, which is a winter crop and we usually work o starting to plant the seeds around April 26th. This year, it sounds as though we’ll be getting going a little earlier.

What I do what to show you is some photos our daughter has taken while she has been driving a tractor. You see, leading up to seeding, we do deep ripping. We’re ripping the ground down about 500mm (I think๐Ÿ˜ฌ) so the wheat plants find it easier to put their roots down deeper to make the most of the soil moisture we have. We rip part of our farm every year, the part that’s going into wheat, the rest is planted to canola and lupins. This year we also ripped on a 5 degree angel to break up more of the hard pan and to help inter grate the soil at seeding.

Any way, here’s some pics from deep ripping and some ripper sunsets.

Cheers for stopping by

Approaching things with intention

Hey, it’s me again. I know I have been so absent, and now I’m here twice in a matter of days…… I’m starting to really get a feel of some things I’m wanting to share.

So today I want to talk about approaching things with intention. Recently I went to a 2 day farming seminar in Perth. I caught up with some old friends, made new ones and listened to some very inspirational women share some wonderful ideas and thoughts. This seminar was for farming women. It was great to be in a room with 200+ other farming women all relatable to each other.

One message that was loud and clear over the 2 days was…..how do we take all this information home and share it with our families. Now most of the time these families are our in laws and sometimes the situation between parents in law and daughter in laws can be a bit….let’s say sensitive. I totally understand where they’re coming from. I’ve been there and would even say that I’m still there to a certain extent. Coming into a farming family can be hard. The family have worked hard all their life to get to the position they are in and they don’t always know how to make you feel welcome in the “business” side of things.

Farmers are very unique and very protective of what they have worked hard to earn. And I totally get it, because as our children are getting older and my husband is talking about us only really being here fully working in the farm for another 10years, I don’t know that I’m all that happy with moving On, I’ll still be young….and I love our farm ๐Ÿ˜€.

Anyway……… I’ve been thinking since I got home from Perth about how can women take new information back to their family farms and introduce new thoughts and processes to help improve their businesses. And I’ve come up with the idea that we need to do it with intention. We as women/wives/mothers/daughters/daughter in laws need to feel strong in what we are taking home and take the subject to conversation with intention of improvement. Not improvement as in something is broken and it needs fixing, with intention of helping improve and making something easier, simpler, safer, more economical. We need to be sure about what it is that we are saying. The only thing I can relate it to is, when you are standing up for one of your kids. You will do anything for your kids safety and happiness, you know you are within your rights to stand up for them. So with the same passion of wanting to help the business, take your idea home and share with the intention and passion of helping, joining in and being part of something that you love. And go with love, go with the anticipation of being heard and taken seriously. Go with confidence that it is a good idea. Go with suggestions of how it can work and how it can solve a problem or potential problem. You are worth being listened!

This is how I’m going to approach my new proposed changes, upgrades, improvements and I believe that when I go into a meeting or make a suggestion with that passion and belief that it will be listened to and appreciated. I’ll let you know how I go.

So go with intention and you will be amazed at the results you can achieve.

Balance and Appreciation

Hi there. Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you are having a great day.

Something I really struggle with is working out what it is that I want to write about, so I have decided to just write, blow trying to get it right, or trying to stay on track or on topic as well as worrying about what people will actually think about what I write. My life is full of many different things, my head is full of ideas, thoughts, processes, questions and so I have decided to just share how it is.

Do you ever wonder how you’re going to fit everything into life that you want to do? And I’m only talking about the day to day stuff……not the bucket list stuff! I have so much I want to learn about food, spirituality, bookkeeping, farming, essential oils and the list just goes on. It becomes a little well maybe really overwhelming sometimes.

So I’m giving it my best. I’m going to have a go at keeping balance in my life while appreciating what it is that I’m learning, have achieved, and strive to achieve. I am so blessed with my life to be able to do whatever it is I want each day (as long as the lunch boxes and bookkeeping is done). So I’m going to look at writing some things I want to do each day. And the funny thing is that I’ve written this post about 3 times and this is only just coming to me right now as I’m writing. I want to be able to meditate, cook, research, do some office work, spend time outside…..wow no hang on the list is getting too long. I think I’m going to start with making sure I meditate each day as well as do some form of cooking. Now the cooking thing is a big thing right now and I’ll write a post about that in the next couple of days, just to share with you some of what happens in my kitchen ๐Ÿ˜Š. The office work will always get done, because I LOVE it and it has to so our business can continue to run. The outside thing, well I need to collect my chicken eggs everyday, so I need to take a moment outside when I’m walking down to the chicken yard to connect with nature and research, well that is never ending, there’s so much to learn.

I’m going to head off to bed now, because I could just keep rambling on and on about all sorts of things and I don’t want to, I want to head off to bed with the thoughts of appreciation, balance and a plan in my mind……ready to get up tomorrow and go explore life.

Thanks again for stopping by and I hope you call again, I know my posts will get better with more regularity, so please bear with me while I discover what it is that I’m wanting to share ๐Ÿ™ โค๏ธ.

Say thank you to your human self

Howdy doody, I hope you are well and happy today.

I wanted to share something with you today that I realised last night and wrote about in my journal and it has reaffirmed itself to me this morning.

I listen to and read a lot about our non physical self, our angels, our guides, the Universe etc and what I read (it doesn’t mean it’s written like this, but it’s how I read it) tells me that the Universe lines everything up for us, our Inner Being (our non physical part) knows exactly what we need/desire/want and leads us there, but we as humans (our physical part) don’t always listen. Which I totally get.

I have read a lot about being grateful, thankful, appreciative and I always take it in the way that we be these things towards the Universe and our Inner Being for lining things up and leading us there. And I am totally thankful and appreciative of all I have and all I am able to experience and my life in general. But what I realised last night is that we need to be thankful to our human being (our physical part). You see the Universe naturally lines everything up for us, our Inner Being knows what’s good for us, our desires etc and they do these things naturally, they do this with such ease….. but our Human self gets caught up in the physical world, the every day , the here and now, the how it is now and how we want it to be……we get caught up in what we are living.

The other night when I pulled back our covers to get into bed, I just happened to pull the quilt all the way back to have a look under it, for no real reason other than doing it. As it happened there was a white tailed spider sitting there looking up at me. I thought that’s so cool, because being bitten by one of those is not on my list of things to achieve in life. Then I stopped and thanked the Universe and my Inner Being for lining it all up so I wouldn’t get bitten, but then I thanked my Human Self for listening. Listening to what I was feeling was the right thing to do. Just pulling back the quilt……..just because…… I put the quilt right back on once I got rid of the spider, and so there was no real reason to pull it back, except to see the spider in there.

This morning, I’ve been doing my morning routine and I was about to got sit in my Zen Den and meditate. When I sat down, I looked at a basket of magazines I’ve wanted to move, so I moved them, then I saw something else I wanted to do, so I did that, which led to another couple of jobs I’ve been wanting to do for a little while, and after doing them I felt really good. I was just about to sit down when I thought I heard a vehicle pull up, yup…..hubby called in on his way to town to get some parts repaired and I had actually really wanted to see him before he headed off.

When I saw him coming inside, I thanked myself for listening and just doing the things I felt impulses to do, because I got to have that conversation and receive that kiss before he drove into town. If I had have sat down and gone straight into meditation I wouldn’t have had that little moment of bliss, plus I got some jobs done that I’ve been putting off (which is always a bonus)

I’m all for being thankful and appreciative to the Universe, God, our Inner Being, but one of the most important creatures I think we need to be thankful and appreciative to are our Human Beings. Our physical self. For when we listen and do what feels good, do what we feel impulses to do, just because, we get those little golden nuggets and they’re such precious gems.

Have a wonderful day wherever you are in the world and we’ll

The Power within us

Howdy doody, how would you be today?

It’s another gloriously warm day, perfect for harvesting for us. Which is wonderful because we are able to get started harvesting earlier in the morning and going later into the evening. Not necessarily all so excitingly good for the workers, as their hours are getting longer, but great for the fact that we will get the grain off and into storage. And in fact if the workers think about it, they’ll be getting more money .

Yesterday my oven finally broke, the door has been a bit dodgy for a year or so but yesterday it finally gave in and broke. Now, my oven is an integral part to my life. I absolutely LOVE cooking and I use it nearly every day. I need it to sterilise my jars for sauces, I need it to cook my curry….yummmm my favourite food. I need it to bake for my family and the wonderful people who work for us.

So I came down to the kitchen this morning and asked my darling husband what are we going to do with it? He is in the same quandary as I am. We’ve been in our house for about 12 years now and this is my second oven that has broken. Now I thought an oven was pretty much supposed to last you a lifetime, well the lifetime you live in your home for…and I’ve gone through 2 of them, and I’m not rough on them, they just break.

While I was sitting this morning thinking over this and trying to come up with an answer, I remembered my dream oven….the oven I desperately wanted when my last one broke, (well actually the one I really wanted when we built our home), the one I would have replaced it with instead of this one we have now. And in that moment I realised I had not physically broken the oven, but the oven had broken to give me a chance to buy the oven I dream of. Well that oven is no longer my dream oven. You see I have this absolutely beautiful baking tray that I LOVE to use and if I buy the oven I used to dream of I wouldn’t be able to use that tray.

In the past, hubby and I have gone to buy an oven and I don’t know that I have been completely happy with how we’ve gone about it or what we’ve bought. So………I decided today that I need to take responsibility for replacing my oven, I need to go looking for a new one for my kitchen. I need to do some research and find one that I would love to cook with and have in my kitchen.

And in thinking about this, I realise how powerful we are in our thoughts and it just reminds me again that I am a magnificent manifesting being. As I have been looking back through my life I have realised and seen the many times that I have created my life and my own reality. Sometimes this has been undesirable, but when I take a step back and see exactly what I was asking for and what I received were in alignment with each other and because it has been undesirable to me I have seen the times that I have been unaligned with myself, the true me that I am, the true me that I am here to be.

Now it is time to be aware of the things I have put into my vortex, time to be aware of my alignment and the time to know when I am being true to myself, the true me. I am a magnificent manifesting being and I can create whatever I desire.

I hope you are having a wonderful day today and I hope wherever you are in the world, you see the magnificent manifesting being that you are. Because we all have the ability to manifest our desires and we all create our own reality.

Commitment to self

Good morning wherever you are. Today in the world of farm life for us it is windy, warm and wonderful. The wind isn’t so good for harvest but also not too bad either. The warmth is great, meaning we can get harvesting early and wonderful……well it’s not it just always wonderful to be alive?

Today is a day for questions for me and the biggest one I have, which I have over and over again is…….’Why do I regularly put others first?’ It certainly doesn’t serve me and when I don’t commit to myself it throws a real spanner in my life. Recently I had not been meditating as much or writing , I wanted to and then something else would come up or I would need to cook or the cleaner hadn’t cleaned properly so I needed to catch up on what she hadn’t done, or I needed to go to town, or do the bookwork, or or or….I kept finding excuses. I had forgotten how important it is for me to commit to me.

My meditation and writing is so important to my life because if I don’t keep those as a ritual in my everyday life, my life goes into haywire. After I wrote my harvest widow post the other day I started feeling unwell, in a big way, a past medical condition felt as though it was flaring and I didn’t want that and in that moment I realised what I did want, I wanted to be well. So I committed to me again. Daily meditation, and starting to write again, both on here and in my journal. And it has only been 1.5 days and my health has turned around. No more symptoms, no more doubt, no more sore back.

When I meditate I usually have wonderful experiences and receive all sorts of messages but I find that when I’ve not meditated for a little while I go through a process of recalibration of my vibration. It feels really weird saying it, but I literally feel my body under my skin vibrating and lifting. It is a wonderfully incredible feeling and I love it. It’s awesome to know that I am able to do this for myself and then I am able to get on with life in a better version of me.

So meditation done, and writing done. I am going to have a Squizzy I’ve at Hay House at a couple of online courses I have bought and not done and get started on one of those. It’s a course by Kyle Gray about Angels ๐Ÿ˜‡. I am committing to me, I am regularly going to ask if I am looking after myself? I need to change this habit, I need to change this mindset of putting myself second. I deserve to be put first.

This is the magnificent sunset I had the privilege to witness last night. โค๏ธ

I hope you have a magnificent day in your world, I know I’m going to have one in mine.
