Be Your Own Valentine

It’s that time of year again where everything is covered in hearts, there’s overpriced boxes of chocolates crammed in the aisles and bright red and pink cards that announce our love for our significant other.

Don’t get me wrong, I love Valentine’s Day, it’s good to have an excuse to buy flowers and silly gifts for a partner and to eat too much chocolate. But on this particular Valentine’s Day, whether you have a partner or not, I encourage you to become your own Valentine.

You don’t have to spend a fortune, buying yourself lavish gifts, (though you can if you want to!) but I would like to encourage you to really take some time to love and appreciate yourself. Tell your body how much you love it, and how thankful you are for it. Write a list of all the amazing qualities you have. Write down everything you do that makes you beautiful or unique. Promise yourself that you will not speak badly of yourself in any way, to anyone – not even to yourself.

Twin Flame Reality Quote

Write down your wildest dreams, and give yourself permission to begin pursuing them. That project that’s been at the bottom of your to-do list? Put it at the top and go for it!

If you have a partner, then encourage them to do these things too. Perhaps you could even do it together, and help to point out each other’s best parts!

When we truly love and honour ourselves, when we speak kind and loving words to and about ourselves, that is when we are really able to deeply love and cherish others. And that is also when others are able to really love and cherish us. If we are always putting ourselves down in order to solicit compliments from others, then we are missing out on the much greater joy of loving ourselves so much that we don’t need others to confirm it, though if they want to of their own accord, we will happily accept their words!

We are constantly fed the message through the media that we are not good enough, smart enough, pretty enough, rich enough etc., and it’s time that we strengthened our belief in ourselves and our love for ourselves and stood proudly and declared:

I am beautiful. I am intelligent. I am abundant. I am awesome. 

And I love myself. 

You are all those things and so much more. And I am sending you an abundance of love and virtual chocolates!

Happy Valentine’s Day, Gorgeous!

 

Listening to the Signs

I’m working hard on getting the next class finished and available in the online Earth Angel Training Academy, and whilst in the middle of writing, my phone decides to call my friend for me. She didn’t answer, but taking this as a sign that maybe I should talk to her, I dialled her landline, and when she checked her mobile, the call was missed at 11:11am. (Which wasn’t the actual time, her phone is ten minutes fast!) Seeing repeated numbers is often a sign from the Angels, so we chatted for a bit, and during our short conversation, she inspired a wonderful idea for the online classes, a new dimension to the information that I hadn’t considered before.

It made me wonder about all the little nudges, feelings, whispers that I probably ignore on a daily basis. I have decided to be more aware and notice things more. Not that I want to spend every moment analysing everything, but just that if you are open to synchronicities and signs, then things are likely to flow better, and great ideas are likely to show up. I do believe that these nudges are coming from our Angels, and this quote from I’m Here pretty much sums it up.

I'm Here

I’m excited to expand the Academy, and am really pleased with all the sign-ups so far! You can still get a free download of The Earth Angel Training Academy and a discount code for the first class at the Academy, simply by expressing your interest in joining to Academy here.

I’m holding the first live hangout of the students on Sunday the 7th February at 8pm, and at 4pm the same day, I am holding a Q & A hangout for anyone who is considering joining, but has questions they’d like answered first!

Better get back to work, here’s a little snapshot of my desk today. Loving my salt lamp from Peace of Stone!

Birthday Gratitude

I know, I can hardly believe it either – it’s my birthday again! I just re-read my birthday post from 2015, and wow, what a different place I was in then. You’ll be pleased to know that I did get slippers, in fact, I have gone through a few pairs since then, because they don’t last very long in a house with wooden floors!

On my last birthday, I remember being in a slightly darker place, where I was struggling and feeling like things weren’t happening. This year, I feel like I am in a completely different space, even though there hasn’t been any dramatic shifts in circumstance, energetically, things have changed. Progress has been steady and organic and heading in an upward trend.

I think the biggest difference is the gratitude I feel for everything in my life, the good, and the so-called bad. It’s all happened for a reason, and I can see now that it was all perfect. Of course, we always see these things in hindsight, but I’m learning to see things as perfect even when they’re happening and they don’t feel good!

After I officially launched my first class in the online Earth Angel Training Academy, I went for a frosty birthday walk in the woods, and took a few pictures before my phone decided it was too cold and stopped working! My mouth was open in awe the whole time at the beautiful scenes around me, and the cold made me so grateful for my warm clothes!

Here’s a few of the pictures, including a spider’s web I photographed in town yesterday.

I can honestly say, that I cannot wait to see what this year brings. It’s going to be magical!

Launching Soon!

I am very pleased to announce that the Earth Angel Training Academy online classes will be launching on the 20th January!

Earth Angel Training Academy 1

The first class will be Remembering 101, and it will cover the different types of Earth Angel, so you can see which type you identify with. There are downloadable PDFs, so you can print them out, and there will be an audio file for each section too, which will also be downloadable, if you would rather listen to the information.

I will be holding live hangouts for the students once a month, and there will be a private Facebook group for the students to be able to interact with each other and with me!

I will release a new class each week, and there will initially be seven classes, with other classes on the Golden Age Children, and Twin Flames to come too.

I’m incredibly excited! So many beautiful Earth Angels have been asking for this, and after the success of the live classes last year, I knew I had to make it happen, so that my beautiful readers all around the world all had a chance to join in.

To register your interest in the Academy classes, and download your free PDF of The Earth Angel Training Academy, click here, and you will be the first to be emailed with the link to the Academy when it is live and with a discount code!

 

 

A Few Changes

This week, I have renewed efforts to encourage my readers and fans to become Patrons of my work on Patreon. I so far have two lovely Patrons, who have taken the step to pledge a monthly amount towards the cost of creating more content. In order to encourage more to take that step, I will be releasing videos and writing an online writing diary (chronicling my journey while writing my brand new book) and this content will be available to my Patrons only.

I have also decided, that after I have filmed the readings for the three questions I currently have lined up, I will only be offering the Oracle Readings on YouTube to my Patrons too. This is because it takes a lot of time to set up for filming, do the recording, then the editing and then the uploading. And I want this to be something that I offer to those who are keen for me to keep creating, and show that with their support.

I’m not a huge fan of exclusivity and scarcity and getting people to sign up for things, but the minimum amount you can pledge is $1 (about 66p) a month, which really isn’t very much to ask for in return for everything I create and post. There are different perks to becoming a Patron, depending on the amount you pledge, and more perks and bonuses will be added and offered as time goes on.

I have so much exciting stuff coming up to tell you about, that I promise I will begin blogging more often again!

Happy 2016!

Hello beautiful soul!

Just wanted to wish you all the best of everything you wish for in 2016. I took some time out over Christmas and New Year, and that little bit of extra head space has allowed all sorts of mad and wonderful ideas to pour in, and now I am in need of creating a plan to action them! Some of them are already in process, and I know that others will need crazy deadlines in order to become a reality. I have new characters and stories running around in my head and lines of dialogue where there should be rational thought. So despite my decision to hold back on writing and publishing in order to focus on the marketing and other work, it appears that the Universe has completely different ideas!

2015 was indeed an interesting year, and to summarise, I published two more books in the Earth Angel series, I worked in Scotland briefly, I took part in Campnanowrimo, I did a 30 day blog challenge, and most surprisingly to myself, I managed to use my organiser, Astrid, for the entire year! In fact, she has been stripped of old notes and the 2015 diary, and there are shiny new empty pages just waiting to be filled with plans for this year. When I began using Astrid in January 2015, I was nervous that she would end up the same way as so many previous diaries did, put to one side and forgotten. But we are still best buddies! In fact, I did a little makeover, using some free printables I found online:

12465652_10153157622497163_773484409_oTaking the time to do some small crafty projects over Christmas, reminded me just how much I love to create things. I wasn’t planning to make any resolutions this year, but I do hope to be more creative, and make boring things pretty!

I will be adding a few things to my vision board, and I will be setting my intentions and goals in the next few days. I have a feeling that 2016 is going to be very interesting, and I am going to do the exact opposite to what I tried to do in 2015 (which was make a plan) and I am going to go with the flow!

In other random news, I was very pleased to have just passed the 40k views mark on this blog over the last few days! I started the blog when I began my journey in 2011, and in that first year, my blog received a total of 251 views! In contrast to that, the views for 2015 came to just under 18k. They might seem like small numbers compared to some sites that receive thousands of views per day, but I think it’s quite an awesome achievement. My readers in 2015 came from a total of 139 different countries! Knowing that these words are read by amazing folk like you all over the world makes me want to really share things that will inspire, help and make you smile :)

I do hope to blog more often, I know that I slacked off towards the end of last year, when I got busy with creating the Earth Angel classes and with editing work.

Wishing you an awesome New Year, whatever you decide to do with it! Thank you so much for reading my posts and supporting me in the last year, I really do appreciate it!

 

Favourite Christmas Recipe

One of the holiday foods I have missed the most in the last five years of being gluten-free, is Stollen. I adore marzipan, and I just love the taste of the sweet treat. Why I have never tried to make it myself before now, I have no idea! But it is so very simple, and not only that, but I have also made it vegan and yeast free too!

So if you want a simple, yummy, no dairy, egg or gluten Christmas treat, then this is your lucky day! Apologies for not posting actually in time for Christmas, I was too busy eating it! Continue reading

Writing and Publishing Update

I want to share with you a decision I have made in the last few days, which I know won’t make me very popular, but hopefully you will understand…

For the last 5 years that I have been publishing and writing my books, I have published an average of 2 books a year, and I have been putting my calling to write and publish above everything else. Above my health, my finances, and my relationships. In September, my body decided enough was enough and made me focus on it, made me help it to heal, and amazing synchronicities happened in the following couple of months to help me with that, and I feel as though I have more energy now than I ever remember having in my life! 

Over the last five years, I have worked in quite a few different jobs, I have worked on publishing books for others, and I’ve published ten of my own novels – but I haven’t spent much time marketing those books that I have brought into the world. I feel it’s time to press the pause button on writing any more of my own books, and to focus on the precious gifts I have written already. Because by doing so, I will also improve my relationships, as I will then have the time to see my friends and family, and have more fun! Continue reading
