See you on the porch !

I love this ~
On the first day, God created the dog and said, sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this I will give you a life span of twenty years. The dog said, “That’s a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I’ll give you back the other ten.”

And God said that it was good.

On the second day, God created the monkey and said, “Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I’ll give you a twenty-year life span.” The monkey said, “Monkey tricks for twenty years? That’s a pretty long time to perform. How about I give you back ten like the dog did?”

And God again said that it was good.

On the third day, God created the cow and said, “You must go into the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer’s family. For this, I will give you a life span of sixty years.” The cow said, “That’s kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. How about twenty and I’ll give back the other forty?”

And God agreed it was good.

On the fourth day, God created humans and said, “Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I’ll give you twenty years.” But the human said, “Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?”

“Okay,” said God, “You asked for it.”

So that is why for our first twenty years, we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves. For the next forty years, we slave in the sun to support our family. For the next ten years, we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren. And for the last ten years, we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.

Life has now been explained to you. There is no need to thank me for this valuable information. I’m doing it as a public service.

If you are looking for me.. I will be on the front porch

Where are you – exactly

Where are you on your journey

Exactly …..

Any idea ?

Has anyone given you a plan, a mudmap

So you can be SURE of the place

you are meant to be

at a certain time

and a certain place

Any idea ?

Well I think thats the point

We have no idea

Yet somehow

Somewhere

We think we are not where we are meant to be !

Ludicrous !

and How on EARTH can you work that one out ?

Its a state of mind

That somehow asks us

Why we haven’t gotten further yet

Further to WHAT

Further to WHERE

And what on EARTH discounts where we are now ?

Its the innocent EGO my friends

That understates our human existence

(Didn’t see that one coming – did you !)

It is the voice in our head that is seriously destructive

Based on WHAT exactly

It is the voice of our experiences

The voice of our successes

suggesting they ‘may’ have been flukes

It is the voice of our failures

that remind us of that moment

When we accepted defeat in our eyes and hearts

When we second guessed ourself.

What of the Innocent Ego ?

It is what holds us back.

It holds us in its grip

OUR grip

That allows us to decide

to accept less then we are capable of

To accept less then we can be

Because thats the point

We CAN be – because we choose to

Why ?

Because we have it in our very soul

Not the human moments

The connected moments

When we are in touch with our soul

The moments when we realise

the only thing that stands in our path

is our decision to be

Just BE

Not because we have hit a certain point on our path

Not because our path is chosen as A _ B _ Z

Because our path – our journey

Is WHAT WE MAKE OF IT

So we can’t be OFF course

We are ON our journey

By its very nature

It is part OF the course

The innocent EGO

Has no place

Because it is manufactured AFTER the event

After the thought

And THAT is the Key.

If it is in the moment – it IS meant to BE

If it is an AFTERthought – it is a post mortem

and we all know something has to die

for there to be a post mortem

Live

Be Soul

Forget the assumptions

The afterthoughts

The Journey is what you make of it

When you chastise yourself

Kick THAT to the curb

And enjoy

Just BE

Losing faith in anyone ? Here’s why…..

If you find yourself losing a little faith in others

Look to yourself

The potential for us to look outside ourselves

When the feelings brew from within

Are human nature.

So look inside yourself

Are you losing a little faith in yourself ?

Do you have some of this niggling doubts

setting in a little too eagerly ?

Settling in to roost too comfortably ?

Look within

Look to yourself.

Are you thinking – hymn – are they the same underneath as the last person I had feelings for

Is there a pattern here ?

The common denominator is you

Which does NOT mean it IS you

It suggests have a look a little closer my dear.

Look closer to home

BEFORE you make a decision

Before you judge

Lest you be judged yourself

By your own hand

And we have this conversation again

further down the road.

Losing a little faith in anyone ?

Is not the same as

Catching someone out.

That is experiencing the reality

Look again inside yourself though,

Thats the thematic here.

Look inside yourself

Is it faith your are losing

Or truth you are finding.

Acceptance is weak – if it is not accepting anything from self

Empowerment is acceptance of reality, and choosing you

Look inside yourself

You are weaker if you don’t

And weak is not strong

And love lives everywhere

Weak does not live in love

Weak lives in fear.

Love

Look inside yourself

And go forward

Peace

I have just spent the morning

Speaking and messaging with a few people – none of whom are within 5000 miles of me….

Technology is amazing isn’t it !

These people –

Who I feel such a strong sense of love, abundance, and empowerment from…

Really ask me – to strive to be the real ‘me’.

xxxxxx

So what is the real message here

xxxxxx

Surround yourself with people who mean something to you

Surround yourself with those whom you mean something to

If you want to know who they are ?

Listen…

Feel….

You will know instantly

…..

If you have to ask

The question has just been answered

Move….

Without, Within, Be

It is in the writings of others that we seem to find ‘ourselves’. We read and nod and agree – that’s ‘us’ we say. Then, ‘OMG’ you hear from the other room – as your children read something that makes sense to them – something you have been trying to get through to them for years.

 

Why does the reality that we are, seem to find itself to others musings?

 

Many moments travel by us and we miss them totally – or do we?

 

We miss them in words, in conscious thought, however we envelope them into our energetic world. We take on others views of us – whether consciously or unconsciously.

 

We take on that ‘glare’ that comes across the room – when we don’t ‘really’ know whether it was meant for us, or whether it was brewed in another’s insecurity or myth. The telegraph of their bitter self – their lack of self love.

 

Self-love – is about knowing thyself. The ‘inners’ and the ‘outers’. The self is a conscious being – a being of light – or so they say.

 

The self is our awareness of our own conditioning and how it plays out in the outer world, sacrificed for reality by our lost thoughts of the inner world.

 

We are like the Tardis my friends. Deeper, inner. There then, Dr. Who, is the doctor within each and every one of us. It is the diagnostic self, saying ‘Who’ am I.

 

Being broken is a metaphor, for not allowing the acceptance of the pieces that our lives are, this time around, to come together into a whole, despite – or fearfully driven by, a lack of conscious awareness of where the pieces ‘fit’.
We judge them, (our ‘self), from what we know – today – of who we are in our lifetime – today.

 

We are not intelligent creatures. We are intelligence itself. We cannot divest ourselves of what we are. The self, whatever we wish it to be, just is.

 

How is it then, that when we feel down, and unworthy, others tell us that they love us ?

 

They really do love ‘us’. They love the ‘us’ that they know beneath the moment.

 

So how though, can they love us, when they do not know us ?

 

They do not need to know the nitty gritty pieces. That’s not us in reality anyway.

 

It is the combination of experiences that compose the whole that they resonate to, that we have not yet made sense of. That is why we question ourselves and cannot see how people can love us even with our flaws.

 

We concentrate on the flaws and accept them to a point.

 

That’s not us either.

 

We are an energetic whole, worthy of love. When we love, we care. Mainly, for others.

 

When care we ‘take’ care.

 

Care for yourself as you would an ‘other’, who also in their time, can not see why we love them, even with their realities and quirks, which are in reality, what they see as their flaws.

 

Look in the mirror and see ‘you. Love ‘you’. The energetic whole. Stop trying to make sense of the pieces as a separate set of components, which make us choose – and therefore judge.

 

Care for the self, so you can love the self, through your own eyes, not just those of another.

 

You would do it for someone or something else wouldn’t you ?

 

What can make the difference ?

 

It’s the perspective you have, the lens you can look through.

 

It is the lens of self. The self does not judge. Stop judging from the outer, when the inner is the key.

If it walks like a duck……

The hardest thing in life

Is to accept what we know to be true

Even if it doesn’t suit us

Yes….

we can’t like everything

And we can’t control everything

So….

we just have to accept what suits us

Even if we dont like it.

Our parents would have told us

That not everything is fair

And we have to suck it up sometimes.

The key in  the message

is that we dont have to like it

and dont have to agree with it

or wear it like we accept

whatever ‘it’ is to us

We do however have to accept that it is as it is

And leave it to where it fits

Let it go

Let it alone

Its doesn’t serve us.

Don’t send it energy

It doesn’t resonate to us

It is what it is

Move on

– thats the ‘let it go’ part

Accept it is

Don’t accept it is for ‘us’.

Let it go

Move on

Be

What message at 5am is this ?

If I ever lose my faith in you………….

Belief in the self is the only important thing

Because without that you will be lost

Which is why it will not happen

Life Imitating Art Imitating Life…or should I say Craft ?

What an amazing experience

I love it when spirit make a point

Using everything in our day

to bring our reasons for being

Into the light…

Sunday I had the honour of doing some training

A 9 hour day.

Bringing opportunity

To anyone who put their hand up

to learn

In a way that works

for them.

Let me explain

I had nearly 100 students attending

Who wanted to learn.

and I started sharing the knowledge.

Within a few minutes

beyond the nodding and smiles I saw..

It became clear to me anyway,

that nobody was understanding.

Then one young man came up

And quietly said

Nobody really speaks english.

So i smiled and asked if he would interpret

Then another man rolled his chair up beside me

And THEY were going to be my interpreters

There was at least 3 languages in the room

English not actually one of them.

Some brought their children as interpreters for their group.

So I had the microphone

And spoke to these people

With all the gestures and body language, smiles and respect

And then the boys together,

translated in different dialects.

And so began our day.

So why is this so exciting for me ?

Because I GOT what spirit were showing me

I GOT IT loud and clear.

Lets see if you can see the point….

Here was a room full of people

Who brought all their experiences

Wanted to hear what messages I can bring them

so they can go away and make things somehow better in their lives.

They weren’t sure what they would hear

Yet they came with hope.

I had a microphone

This is true

Yet I had to bring the message out,

Allow the interpreters to pass it on,

Trust they were getting the message through,

And wait till they finished

before I could go on to the next piece of the message.

Hmmn – Now I have the luxury of spirit in my ear…

letting me know when they were

‘getting off my point’

‘putting their own spin on it’

‘trying to make sense of’

What was MY message to these people – not theirs.

I bring the knowledge

Yet I couldn’t pass it on without them.

Their intentions were honorable

And I could NOT have done ANY of it

Without them

No matter HOW POWERFUL that message was.

There were times I grabbed the microphone

Because I knew that they were extending the message

I had to slow my message down

Into snippets

And not lose my train of thought

so the message lost its integrity

and power

and value.

I had a few different interpreters

And not all easy to work with

And it was, a very successful day

The first of many.

So…..

Where does this fit for me

The medium…

As a medium, I am those boys – those interpreters.

As your medium, I speak for those who you wish to receive a message from

And you know they are there – wanting to get a message to you

Yet you can’t hear them

Or see them

And you can’t always understand the message

Your loved ones have to rely on me passing the message on

Without putting my spin on it

Without embellishment

Just the message.

And they have to wait, until I pass one bit on

Before they give me the next bit.

I give them the microphone

yet thats not really enough

Funny isn’t it….

How no matter what we do

We need to realise we can do better

And many times

we miss the point that is being made

When Life imitates art imitating life xx

My mediumship training allowed me

To work in snippets

not lose my train of thought

Know that my words are only valuable if they can be communicated in a way that can be understood

and that is not always going to be

through the sound of my own voice….

Information and intelligence (because that is what spirit is – an ‘intelligence’)

comes in many ways

And the symbolism given to me

from spirit

in readings

to help me get THEIR message across

was the same as the examples I had to give

these boys

to get my message across

Amazing really.

I loved the experience

And it is because it was

an experience

Given to me

to get me to understand

how to be

the best at what I am doing

before they show me

How I can be even better

at whatever I am doing.

Mediumship

Development classes

Public platform events

Private readings

Mum

Friend

Anything

Because thats life

My life

And what an experience

So Blessed

SO choose to have a great life !

It begins today

And never miss the point of the experiences in your days……

Preparing a Business Case – these instructions make sense !

This is one of the ways I explain how to make a Business Case that will GAIN the business !

 

Making a business case is really about making a case based on something you believe will benefit the business.

 

It will do more then that. It will fit with the strategic focus of the organization going forward.

 

You have to assume that your document will speak for you.

 

Let me give you a scenario.

 

You have been given 30 minutes to put your idea to the board.

 

You have an amazing opportunity and you are absolutely ready to engage them with your presentation.

 

As happens in reality, you now have 5 minutes and not with the board, with the new assistant Operations manager who will take your details to the Board who are now flying back to the UK.

 

Your Business Case needs to be self-explanatory. It needs to speak for you when you are not there to speak to it.

 

Your report needs to be clear as the Board wont like something difficult to read

 

They want to see why it will work and where it fits in the scheme of things in the company, which they must drive or they may not get re-elected or compensated for.

 

Your case needs to show how your idea makes life easy. It may not be an easy solution, yet the picture you paint with the report has to show ‘easy’.

 

The decision makers wont be ‘doing the work’ so don’t get bogged down in that detail. That’s what they employ you for J

 

You imagine there are 3 decision makers who you now, may not even get to see.

 

The person you pitch your business case to isn’t even a decision maker now !

 

So back to the 3. And I can imagine you have ‘met’ these characters in your career travels.

 

Young gun – who doesn’t know as much as they make out, and will ask the curly question to see if you have an answer. That question is about bravado. If you haven’t the details and the CLEAR answer in your report, you will fall foul of this derailment.

 

There is the senior board member. You get a curly question that is designed to see if you have looked at the contingencies and the strategic plan going forward. The question isn’t curly if you have taken the time to research and to link to the strategic plan of the organization. Show the link. This is the real decision maker. Cool as a cucumber.

 

This person makes VP’ decisions over lunch

 

Then there is the aspiring senior manager. They know what you are capable of and want you to succeed. They just can’t be seen to be biased and cant really help you. If you need their help it will be back to the drawing board.

 

So you see – you need to allow that business case to speak for you as you cant speak to it.

 

Have everything backed up by appendices and reference like a pro.

 

Leave no stone uncovered and the young gun will learn from you.

 

You were gunning for a job much higher then the Operations Manager anyway weren’t you ?

 

If you make them look good you will be well on your way to having your business case accepted and you the next VP

 

Mainly because your marks were all HD’s
