It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or
hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be
calm in your heart… (Unknown)
What a difference a year makes, with 2014 being quite a challenge for both of us with health and family issues, but by making necessary changes and accepting the rest we looked forward to 2015 with a new focus and energy, and what better way to start the year off than to be with family on a warm and fun caribbean island, playing with our five year old grandson, enjoying spicy food and exotic drinks and swimming and relaxing on the turquoise seas and white beaches.
We love being with our family but we always love to come back home… to our new home in Benalmadena Costa and focus on enjoying a wonderful year. With lots of long morning walks, good healthy food, plenty of relaxing me-time and allowing our creativity to flow for optimum health. Tom has focused his time moving with the ebb and flow of the quite volatile stock-market, while I continued to edit my first book that I had recently completed and was preparing to self-publish and market it around the world.
Having recently moved to our new home and a new area, I began to attend Costa Women Business and Social meetings and parties along the Costa del Sol to meet new friends, and what magnificent adventurous ladies I came across… whom many have become good friends and have helped me prepare for my book launch that took place the first week of November and helped me create my New Website, a Non-Profit Spanish Association, a Marketing/Social Media structure and find a Printer/Distributor, IngramSpark to take care that my book comes to all the hearts ‘that are ready’ to read about my extra-ordinary journey falling in love with ‘all of myself’ and to resonate with the next stage of Humankind as we prepare to live a life of celebration and freedom on the physical plane.
Not only was I ready to experience my own freedom and Enlightenment… I was ready to present my book to the world… Your Magnificent Self… A Journey to Freedom and celebrate with others the magnificent consciousness each person and all life is.
During the summer we took a well earned break and went on a European Tour driving our new British car… a fiery fox Range Rover through Spain, France, Holland and England, a 6,000 km journey to visit friends and family. We had a lovely time meeting old and new friends and the highlight of our tour was to attend my baby sister’s (Angie) wedding with her new man Jon in mid July, It was a quiet, fairytale wedding with their close family and friends that we celebrated with everyone as a start of their life together. They have just returned from their month long honeymoon sailing the seas on the Queen Mary Cruise Ship from England to New York, the Caribbean and back home.
Don’t get me wrong, we have still experienced some challenging times this year, but when you know that all life is a reflection of divine perfection in order for each heart to fulfil their own unique journey of creation… acceptance allows you to sail through life and be the magnificent light we each truly are.
That just leaves Tom and I to wish all my family and friends a wonderful christmas time and happy 2016… and remember to love all parts of yourself no matter what the circumstance and allow yourself to shine your light out into the world that transforms the world into love joy and harmony.
IAM so delighted to be able to display my first book to you that is available to purchase as an ebook and small paperback from all major physical/online bookstores around the world. Amazon.com
Maybe it’s the perfect gift for yourself this christmas time…
All money raised from my books and Master Creator Classes (coming soon) go to my Non-Profit Spanish Association that funds my Creative Art Project I take into local schools to inspire our young children to explore, question and discover life around them and within them.
