Morning messages

Howdy doody to all those in the world of cyberspace. I hope you are having a wonderful day today.

I want to share with you a message I received this morning when I finished meditation, I feel so much joy for the pleasure of having receiving this.

Thank you for the gifts of self reflection, for looking within will tell you all you need to know to answer all the questions you have. Stop asking others and start asking yourself. Take your time. It will come. Feel comfortable in what you do for rushing will only cause confusion. Confusion causes chaos. Chaos causes doubt. Doubt causes anxiousness. Anxiousness leads to disbelief and Disbelief stops the process.

I hope this brings some light to your day today.

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 😇. 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. ❤️

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

Today I give thanks

Howdy doody, how would you be today?

This is a quick post today, I was having a look in my little book called Opening Doors Within by Eileen Caddy and part of today’s (Nov 4th) page reads “Gratitude keeps the door wide open for more and more wonders to enter your life, so never, never fail to give thanks”.

As soon as I read this, I thought;

Today I give thanks to my teachers

We all teach each other……..small or large things

We are all teachers &

Today I give thanks to my teachers

I am now officially ‘A Harvest Widow’

Howdy Doody, how are you today?

It is a beautiful day so far today, here in the Midwest of Western Australia.  It was a lovely warm 37 degrees Celsius yesterday, so it was a beautiful day for harvesting, not necessarily so nice to be outside in (oh boy the flies are disgusting too), but good for harvesting.

Now that harvest has started, life becomes quite a bit different.  My husband usually is off to work by 6.30 or 7am every day, then gets home around 8 or 9pm every day.  I may see him a couple of times during the day, to give him his lunch or a cold drink, but those moments are mostly filled with catching up on business work or he is on the phone organising trucks to cart our grain or talking to the truck drivers to see what our grain quality is like.  This is why I have titled this post Harvest Widow, it is the title we farmers wives give ourselves as we all experience something very similar & understand what each other is going through.  It is as though we don’t have family, but we still need to feed, cook, clean, wash etc for them.

So this leaves me home all by myself & this is a very interesting one in itself.  I do love the solitude, oh so much.  But harvest goes on for 8-9 weeks & it becomes a little (to say the least) testing on moods, attitudes and relationships.

When I was a kid I can remember not wanting to eat my dinner & everyone else finishing, I was a fussy eater & would really have a hard time eating some things, I can remember sitting at the table eating all by myself & I HATED IT!!!!!  So much so that I make a point of us sitting while our kids eat, even if they’re taking so much longer than what we want, we all sit there together & talk or play or whatever until everyone has finished eating.  So eating breakfast, lunch & dinner these last 2 days all by myself has been hard & has hit me hard today.  I’m a person contact person.

Right now, this morning I decided I need to put together a plan of what I’m going to do to change the way things are this year.  I haven’t come up with a decision , yet, but I will.  The reason I need to do this is because I feel lonely.  I am home cooking, doing the bookwork & many other things I want to do, but the human contact isn’t there & this is what I miss. I am off to a good start because tonight I am going to the movies with my older sister to see Bad Moms 2, which will be a great laugh.  I think I need to commit some time each time I go to town to have some direct contact with friends & family.  I’ll get my thinking & planning cap on.

Meanwhile here’s a couple of photos of harvest that my hubby & our eldest daughter have taken (she’s working with us on the farm this year)

And what’s happening on the farmer’s wife side of things…….I’ve made dinner for my husband & daughter to eat while I’m out & I’ve popped 2 banana cakes plus a carrot cake in the oven for lunchboxes.  I”ll share those recipes with you in another post.

I hope you have a wonderful day (or evening) & we’ll
