Do you ever wish you could go back in time and give some advice to your younger self? Here’s what came to me today during meditation of what I might say (with love) to the young girl I once was. Please bear in mind, we should never berate ourselves for the things we have done in the past, for these all help us to learn life lessons along the way. This post is also for Debbie Roth’s #forgivingfridays. Continue reading
I love this quote from Rumi above. It was the starting point for my new PODCAST channel on Soundcloud (yay! – major learning curve overcome). This episode offers guidance on how sorrowful thoughts can be used to our advantage. It’s a 5-minute listen, easy to do while you’re busy with daily tasks.

Fed up with the usual Advent Calendar? Cheap chocolate shapes behind doors that are infuriatingly cumbersome to open? Here’s my gift to you – the alternative (free) 2018 Advent Calendar!

Do you have a friend whose advice you trust implicitly? Are they on the physical or spiritual plane? For some, this friend may be what they call their guardian angel; for others, it may be God; for others still it may be a friend with whom they have almost a psychic link. Whichever meaning you give to “trusted friend and guide”, my hope today is that you may continue to be guided by their intuition, wisdom and love in everything you do! Enjoy my poem. Much love, Anita.
Angel by my Side
When I stop doing and sit quietly
just being, I feel you by my side
trusted friend and guide.
Towering over me
your wings enfolding me
in a loving embrace
as a parent to a child.
My scalp tickles at your touch
causing smiles of surrender
all over this body.
Such benevolence! Such grace!
Your breath pours over me
soothing my muscles
loosening my joints
quietening the mind
unlocking the soul.
May your light flow through me
sending healing to all.
Give me strength to work with you
in service to all.
Be by my side always
to catch me when I fall.
