I had a full weekend as usual & Sunday was as busy as ever with readings at both Cala Llena market and then Elements Restaurant in the evening. I
The weather was wonderfully cooler in Ibiza yesterday and we actually had a..........wait for it...CLOUDY day!!!! Sitting under the carob tree at the market and feeling the cool breeze rush through to my stall, I was reminded of life in England & the beauty of a cloudy day like this! Easy to say when you are living on a Mediterranean island with around 300 days of sunshine I suppose but all the same, I welcomed the clouds with open arms.
The vibe in the market was lively yesterday due to the beaches being less attractive I suppose. I personally adore a cloudy day on the beach but with perhaps just 7 or 14 days to enjoy the glaring golden sun, it can be disappointing to have to find another something to do when you are here on your precious beach holiday. The good thing to watch though was that people´s smiles had returned with the coolness. August heat is very tiring and it can make everyone irritated & tired so yesterday I was more than happy to feel the relief in everyone´s faces and to return to a more typical chilled Ibiza vibe. Smiles and happy conversations were resumed and, perhaps for just one day, we were all let off the sunshine´s blazing hook, and allowed to breathe a bit more deeply!
I gave 3 readings at the market yesterday & what was clear was that this journey we are all taking can only be taken alone. I receive many questions about relating and relationships and lately, the most common guidance which comes through is that no matter whether we are single, married or in a long term or series of shorter relationships, we must constantly be responsible for ourselves and our own process. No-one is to blame for how we feel and no-one can for that matter, make us feel better.
What I see so, so, so much now is that many people are simply having to grow from co-dependency and from a general feeling of reliance on others or waiting for the "one" to arrive! We are all being squeezed, squashed and quite literally pressured to find our own inner power, peace & truth. It is not "out there" and it is certainly not on hold until we fall in love with another. Falling in love with yourself may sound a bit strange but this is indeed what we must do. Love is extremely available to us and the door opens the opposite way to the way we have been pushing & pulling. In fact there is no push and pull, we are already inside. The door is always open.
REFLECTIONS ON THE WEEK
My week has personally felt quiet amazing and I too am growing in this feeling of being at peace just with me. Funny thing is, the more I feel this, the more life offers me all I was trying for before! The less I push or worry, the more that which I desired is already given to me on a golden plate. Some lesson! I know this intellectually of course but to be able to have the courage to wait and to allow and to surrender to what is & to see life unfold for me, is quite another story.
Facing our fears and accepting life and knowing that our own perceptions need to be cleared, this is the work of the awake human being in 2012. Life is good. Life is miraculous. Can we see it? That is up to us!
So, today Goddessa launched a new teaching on the website, a weekly look at a Goddess wisdom and today was Yemanya, the goddess who awakens us to what is already perhaps in front of our eyes. My week has been very much like this and I have noticed how much I already have, how many wise men and women who are supporting me on my journey and this feels wonderful! Focussing more on what we have and on gratitude for this, is of course what brings more of it to us so I will be making sure Yemanya is in my mind this week as I move ever more deeply into my Goddessa creation here on Ibiza.
I want to thank my dear friend Cheryl Slater for her encouragement last week and her suggestions that I include a weekly update and also that I start this blog site. Cheryl creates branded business pages on Facebook (link below) and she supports people in raising their profile through social media. You can find out more from her page.
I wish you all a wonderful week wherever you are and look forwards to your feedback on how Yemanya is helping you in your daily life! Don´t miss those GOLDEN OPPORTUNTIES now will you?
Much love to you, gentleness, kindness & peace
