Very excited that you can now get your hands on a copy, let me know what you think!
I’ve always been fascinated by Autumn. The beauty that nature creates from what is essentially the death of its bounty, astounds me. I think it’s my favourite season, especially as I have experienced the colours of New England in the Fall, which was incredible. If you have never seen Vermont or Boston in October/November, put it on your bucket list – it’s a must see.
Anyway, it felt like it was time to take some new author photos, as my last ones were taken in Summer 2016, in various places across the States, and I like to take new ones every year. I decided to do some Autumnal ones, and went on an adventure with two Faeries, into the local woods. I may have added a few magical elements…
As always, would love to hear your thoughts 🙂
Last week I had a really frustrating day. It was one of those days where long-awaited things fizzled out and died, and things that ought to be quick an easy to complete, took ages, and then still didn’t get done because of an unforeseen hiccup.
It’s days like that when I realise that I am not going with the flow. That I am stubbornly holding on to how I think things should be, how I think things should go, and I’m not listening to the Angels, not noticing the signs, and I am in resistance of my reality.
So, how to get into the flow?
Surrender. Relax. Listen.
Pause for a moment and just breathe.
I have come to realise, that you can plan as much as you want, you can daydream of the outcome as much as you like, but if the Universe has something else in mind for you, then it will happen their way, whether you like it or not!
I find that doing something creative, particularly something physical (not digital) helps me to get into the flow. I’ve recently got back into knitting, and have really got into make jewellery (I made the above necklace when trying to get back into the flow!) and I’ve also been doing more photography. I find that making something gets me out of my head and into my heart, and back into the flow, and I usually end up with something handmade and awesome at the end of it too!
I also like going for a walk, as getting outside in nature, and breathing in fresh air and getting some exercise helps to lessen the resistance, and allow the ideas and opportunities to flow again.
What do you do to get into the flow? Do you notice when you are stuck and in resistance?
Ten years ago today, I published the very first edition of Heaven dot com. I had written the novella when I was 15/16, and in 2007, the age of print-on-demand was dawning, and having always wanted to be an author, I just wanted to see my name on a book, my words in print.
So I published it.
I had no idea, at that point in time, that it would be the beginning of my journey as an author. At that point, all I had written was short stories, poetry and the novella. Though I dreamed of writing full length novels, I honestly didn’t think it would be possible for me.
But apparently, it was possible.
Heaven dot com is a story of love, and hope, and though I cringe a bit now when I read it, because there is so much I would change in it if I could, it was the spark that ignited my calling. And the fire has continued to burn for a decade.
For such a tiny book, it has had a pretty big impact on my life, and I know it has impacted the lives of others too.
