My Little Angel 3

Remain Sane

Becoming aware of our emotional weather patterns is essential if we want to remain sane, functioning, and well-loved members of the human race. Every woman has a pattern and everyone's pattern is different. If you don't recognise yours, start paying attention. When an outburst of anger or tears erupts, step back. Breathe deeply. Centre yourself. Count to 100 before using an ultimatum.

You're enraged? Why? You're grief-stricken? Why? You're resentful? Why? Deal with it. Talk to a friend. Write in your discovery journal. Write a letter you don't send. Make the situation of not better, then at least tolerable. Yes, there must be one thing you can do. Do it.

My Little Angel 1

Emotiional Drunk

There was once a period in my life when I could literally cry and did so frequently. I prayed everyday for emotion sobriety. One day at a time. I got better. I became well. But I know that as far as emotions are concerned, I'll always be in recovery.

Weather Report

Today, variably cloudy, moody. Didn't sleep well last night. Much tossing, turning and churning. Could be time of month, heavy water retention.

Bedrooms are created for two reasons. Comfort and joy. My beddings is just as inviting as it is comfortable to lie on. My bedroom is the one place of my own, where I can stop the world from spinning by getting off. It is a sacred space for self-nurturance.

The Prayer

Today I am going to ask Spirit for a daily portion of grace. Ask Divine Wisdom for operating instructions. Ask my guardian angel to manifest holy assistance. Ask for a miracle.

I am going to ask for what I need and want. I will ask to be taught the right questions. Ask to be answered. Ask fo the Divine Plan of my life to unfold through joy. Ask politely. Ask with passion. Ask with grateful heart and I will be heard. I am just going to ask.

Ask For Help

When was the last time you felt comfortable asking anybody for anything - for advice, for help or even for directions? It's so simple, it's scary. Just ask for what you want. Help, advise, wisdome, guidance.

Angel and Diamond


Goldilocks was a modest little lady who didn't want much. She knew what was "just right", what was perfect for her. She made confident, creative choice. Now there's the girl I'd lke to be when I grow up!

Temperature Drops

Outside the temperature drops as the clouds descend. All of nature is at peace; we should be too.

Pause First

When I am tempted to add more accumulation to my life, I pause first. It is not about saying "no", but rather knowing when to say "enough" because we know that all we have is all we really need.
One cannot collect all beautiful shells on the beach. One can only collect a few, and they are more beautiful if they are few.


Your Possessions Express Your Personality

I believe our possessions can be very revealing, offering insights into our personalities in intimate and illuminating ways. I believe surrounding ourselves with objects that speak to our souls can bring us authentic moments of pleasure. But I do not believe our possessions define us.
Instead, I believe it;s what you love that expresses the authentic woman you are, not what you own.

Three Orange Blossoms


I am inspired to live surrounded by only those things that I passionately love.

The Rose Bouquet

The Only Sin

Do you know that the Koran, the sacred book of Islam teach that we will be called to account for every permissible pleasure life offered us but which we refuse to enjoy while on earth?
The only sin passion can commit is to be joyless. Go now. Depart in peace and sin no more.

Sky Poppy


Passion is holy. A profound mystery that transcends and transforms through rupture. We need to accept that a sacred fire burns within. Whether we're comfortable with this truth or not. Passion is part of real life's package because we were created by Love, for Love, to Love.

Passionate Lives

Many women long to live passionate lives, to be swept away. Passion is wild, chaotic, unpredictable. Permissive. Excessive. Passionate women cant help but exult in their emotions, revel in their desires, howl at the moon, act out their fantasies.

Rose Petals


We learn to wait patiently. To consider. Save. Reflect. Simplify. Embrace order. Get ready. Experiment. Observe.
If you see something you like, ask yourself "Do I need it? Can I work without it?"

This Morning

To be honest with you, this morning I'm not sure of how I want to express myself. I thought I knew. I've loved some things passionately that have brought me great pleasure. But I have also lived with other things I hated so intensely, I became psychically numb to their presence.

A Nest of Comforts

I just realised that I spend much of my free time reading in my bedroom, unintentionally away from my husband and daughter, not because of a need for privacy, but because I didn't have a comfortable chair to snuggle into in the living room.

My husband had his place on the sofa, my daughter claimed the love seat, which I often ended up in the bedroom by default, when I would have much preferred to be sharing time with them.

Poppy In The Dark


Music plays an important role in my everyday ritual. I love to listen to musich while homecaring. My selections, depending on mood and tasks, range vastly.

To Hell

Have you ever said, "to hell with everything, to hell with everybody, I've done my share, let the others do theirs now, enough is enough".

I just have to learn to say enough is enough and mean it.

My Cherry Tree

Simplify, Simplify, Simplify

I think our lives are frittered away by lack of focus. But how cn we focus our attention on what's truly important when we're half-crazed becuse we can never find anything?
This week, I am clearing clutter from a junk drawer, juggling commitments to find a few hours to get my house in order. My soul knows better.

Help Each Other

We need to help each other understand certain things. We will never understand certain things on our own. We can start by holding each other's hand, by listening to one another's concerns, by reassuring one another, today, that everything will be all right. Somehow, together, we will figure it out.
