Supported We Hang In There!

THIS AMAZING ROCK FORMATION IS CALLED “CHAPEL ROCK. THE TREE YOU SEE ON THE ROCK IS ONLY KEPT ALIVE BY THE ROOT BRIDGE ON THE LEFT.

When times get tough, as they sometimes do, we all need a lifeline, something or someone to help us get through. At present I know a very special lady who is struggling and am sending her lots of prayers and love. Her strength is coming from her family and the many wonderful friends she has made over the years but in the end in the toughest times even more is needed. I have been meeting a lot of people lately who have been doing it tough and it really starts you thinking.

When looking at times when we are alone and no other person can share a path we must walk alone you need a strong inner belief that life is taking you exactly where you are meant to be and that all is unfolding just as it meant to. Then you can settle, find peace and acceptance of the present situation knowing that this too will pass, it is impermanent and as everything does will change.

Often this takes a strong faith!

 “You need a deep well in times of drought!” was how the Dalai Lama put it during his teachings in Melbourne.

This faith doesn’t belong to any culture. He went on to say “If I had been born in Australia I would probably be praying to that nice lady in blue (Meaning Mary the mother of Jesus) His point was that we have different religions because of our birth place, heritage, cultural beliefs and this is not to create barriers between us but to make it easier for us and allow for our differences.

Some find their strength in Christ’s teachings, some in Buddha’s and some in other faiths, the important thing is to find that strength and how to tap into it BEFORE things get tough because then it is easier to hang in and find the inner strength and peace to make the journey easier. 

These tough times often bring amazing blessings! They come to us in many surprising ways but they almost always come to us through the love given out by others. It is a gift we can all give, it costs nothing but a little time to send loving thoughts and in todays tough world we need all the love and compassion that can be given.

If you know someone who is doing it tough and you want to help but don’t know how start by sending them loving thoughts.

If you are doing it tough just open your heart and accept all the love that is being poured out daily by many loving souls who know that everyone has a special unique place in this world and that love unites us all.

 

 

Do Pets Go To Heaven?

 

 

WILL I SEE MIKEY IN HEAVEN?

 

1873

MIKEY IS STILL HERE BUT I LOOK FORWARD TO BEING WITH HIM IN HEAVEN!

 

 

Will I see my pet’s spirit after they pass on?

This is a question that is often asked, especially when a much loved pet dies.

I am one of many who answer “YES, you will!.”

Many years ago, while trying to work out how it was that I could see spirit and if it was alright to do so, I attended a spiritualist church in Sydney where the medium giving the readings saw spirit so clearly and accurately that everyone was amazed!

She came to one person after another in the group giving her messages from the spirit world and time and time again she would describe a pet that had died years ago.

The lady behind me had a cat. Not just any cat but a cat with a coat that was rough to pat, it had ripples in it she said and it was a ginger colour. Sure enough the lady had that type of cat it was some special pedigreed breed I had never heard of but she had one.

There was a variety of dogs recognised by their owners and then she came to ME!

I lived in a unit at the time but I had a cat Mischa that had died shortly after my mum passed.

Great I thought!

No she didn’t see a cat… she saw a budgie! A blue budgie that I had forgotten all about.

How I forgot him I’ll never know for he caused us so much embarrassment in his day.

His cage at night was right next to the phone. Peter, that was his name, talked so much mum was always saying “Shut up Peter!” then one night when she was on the phone to a friend  he came out with “SHUT UP!” (sorry for swearing) He had dropped the” Peter” .well mum nearly died there and then as she tried to explain who was doing the swearing.

Peter never did use his name after that when he swore and we learned a valuable lesson about talking budgies!

She then saw “Mischa”,  a tabby cat with one distinctive feature, (he only had three legs as he had been attacked by a dog)

the medium said “This cat hated being called TRIPOD!”

Only one person ever called him that, a cousin’s husband and I never forgave him either!

I became a believer in pets going on after death to a spirit world that night.

I don’t know if it’s the same place we go but I think it could be and I truly hope it is. I have shared so much love with so many wonderful pets and am looking forward to being reunited with them.

I am even looking forward to seeing Peter again for I’m sure no one swears in heaven…DO THEY?

PASSING ON.

A friend of many, many years has just died and I believe is now with those she loved and missed dearly who had gone before her.
Death is just another step in our journey but it causes so much pain to those who remain that we seldom remember this.
When a young person passes over we grieve for the life they “should have had” but really have no way of knowing what that life would really have been like or what suffering it may have involved or if it would have in fact been a happy one.

Death places a curtain between those we love and us while we are still here but curtains can be made of various materials, some so sheer you can see straight through them.

I know this lady, who had a strong faith in life after death and her Lord, is happy now.
Happier than she has been for many years.
While she will be missed here I know she is just behind the curtain and I will see her again soon.

NAMASTE BRITA

An Irish Blessing.

May flowers always line your path

and sunshine light the way.

May songbirds serenade you

every step along the way.

May a rainbow run beside you

in a sky that’s always blue

And may happiness fill your heart

each day your  whole life through!

Just for YOU!

… and yes it is possible to have all these gifts everyday of our lives I have seen many do so even in the face of painful deaths from cancer. All it takes is being able to remain in the moment and be a peaceful, joyful, contented observer of our life and  rest in the knowledge that we are here to grow in love and beauty. This is a great challenge but one many people succeed at through practising meditation or praying.  Trials are opportunities. They come and go, so often providing new or deeper connections with the people who support us at  these times. No moment lasts and the sum of them all define us as the unique, beautiful soul that we are. We write our life’s story not just by how we act but by how we react. The energy we give out not only touches those around us but also the greater energy of this world. By sending out loving kindness to all and most importantly by including ourselves, we are creating a new more beautiful world.

Namaste. Enjoy you journey and many blessings. Brita

A Blessing To Hold Tight Forever!

Each day brings new beauty into our lives, sometimes in ways so subtle that we fail to catch it. I have just had the privilege of sharing with a beautiful lady who after many years of marriage was waiting for her husband to pass into the spirit world. She was sharing with me how lucky she was to have such a loving husband and told me that her son had said” I have never seen or experienced anywhere else the tremendous love you two have.” She said his comment embarrassed her a little, as his wife was there, so she pointed out to them that this was because they were too young. “Love grows,” she said ” With time and with greater knowledge of each other, working on respect and increasing wisdom you learn love is deeper than you ever dreamed. It grows to encompass friendship, contentment, true joy and the memories of shared experiences both good and not so good. After many years it is the friendship and knowing you are always there for each other that really matters.” Such wisdom! What a wonderful gift she had given. I do so hope he was able to grasp it tightly with both hands and never let it go. It was a great reminder for me that until ego fades and allows us to find joy in another’s joy we can never hope to experience love deeply. It is in giving we receive. Namaste.

One Path We All Journey.

 

On Friday night we attended a performance of ” Peace Train” by Darren Coggan in the beautiful old Star Court Theatre. For over two magical hours he unfolded for us the life journey of Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens). He performed 25 of Cat Stevens most famous songs as we sat in hushed silence and awe not just of his ability but of his search for the true purpose and meaning of his life, here was a man who had sold over 60 million records, had all the fame and riches of stardom , who simply turned his back on everything to seek his true path. For too long he had felt the emptiness of “The Good Life”. When faced with his own mortality through a near death experience he had to find answers. Darren Coggan quoted the famous saying “There are no atheists on a sinking boat” and a murmur of agreement ran through the packed theatre. Cat Stevens born of a Greek Orthodox father and Baptist mother who had been schooled at a Catholic school found his answers, after studying many different religions and philosophical paths, in the Koran. He became a Muslim giving up alcohol, drugs and worldly riches.Today he is a leading philanthropist only performing aid charity, especially those supporting children. He has found his path and can now face death peacefully.
Captain Paul Watson, the founder of “The Sea Shepherd” organisation, travels the world fighting to save the world’s endangered oceans and creatures. His life’s journey has been so different that you would think they shared little in common, that is until you read the final chapter of his biography, where he states:-
“Experience has taught me that the secret to happiness is detachment from material desires, a focus on the desires of the heart and a curious mind, regardless of what people might think.
Happiness is not about what you own, it’s about what’s in your heart, the things you try and what you do to make the world a better place, regardless of how you choose to get involved.
Living outside the material world doesn’t mean lacking material assets. It means not being possessed by the things you possess. It means not being terrified of losing your material assets, if it becomes necessary, and it also means not betraying your integrity, your principles and especially your freedom in order to keep them. It means refraining from making decisions that are motivated by profit. It means making your dreams come true, whatever they may be.” Captain Paul Watson like Yusuf Islam has discovered what we all need to remember, that it doesn’t matter if you’re a lawyer, teacher, actor, prime minister, house wife, journalist or anything else, always put your talents into making our world a better place and ask yourself what the future consequences of your actions will be.
According to the philosophy of the Iroquois Nation: “Never do anything without thinking about the consequences it will have seven generation later”.
If we all follow this path what a different world we will have. Peace will reign, poverty be a thing of the past, all people will be treated equally, with fairness and dignity. Our world will be protected, conserved and cherished and when our time to take our leave we will make that final road in peace, knowing we did our best to make this world a better place.”

A beautiful lady called Ann shared her view of people following different religions, she made the analogy to a diamond ” If you stand  along way back from it you see only one colour but when you get closer you find it has many different and equally different colours. All these different colours are part of the and together make up the brilliant “white Light”

The Dalai Lama said at a teaching I attended that we have different faiths to allow for our differing natures and cultures.

I believe that it really doesn’t matter so much which path you follow, what matters  is to find the path that speaks to your higher self and follow it with the strong determination of reaching the “Divine Source”. If you are truly following your soul path you will be lead to the light. You will understand  that  each and every action counts, none are too small to matter.  Your path won’t be free of suffering, no life is but even in the darkest hours you will have hope, a shinning light which helps illuminate that darkness.

 We each decide when we will begin fulfilling our true purpose and when, if ever, we begin our journey to the light, maybe you have already, if not  I wish you success in finding your true soul  path. It may not appear as impressive or as world changing as Yusuf Islam’s or Captain Paul Watson’s or any of the many other famous people we hear of but fulfilment and true happiness lies at it’s end.

A jigsaw picture of a blue sky is incomplete if even one piece is missing!

 May you enjoy the journey Namaste.

 

 

Feeling Truly Supported.

LOVE NEVER DIES

THOSE PASSED OVER

SUPPORT US

UNSEEN

DAILY

NO MATTER WHAT

WE DO

SAY

OR

HOW WE FEEL

WE ARE ALL LOVED

COMPLETELY

FOREVER

LOVE NEVER DIES.

Today I have the flu. It is a beautiful day. The sun is out, the birds singing and I have been forced to stop and rest.

Sometimes I think we forget to stop and just be. While resting I have looked at the other sites of people who are following mine and I have learnt so much. Among them were true jewels, not selling anything but spreading light, love and wisdom. I have put a couple on my site. The one Hand in Hand inspired my poem above, it brought to mind my family now in spirit and awareness brought them close. There is no real separation, they have just passed through a beautiful door into spirit. I will pass through that doorway, again, just as I did when I was born and the experience I know will be just as wonderful. The process may look a bit rough  ( It usually is and I am constantly  amazed at how strong women are!), but then the smile on the face of a mother,  when she first gazes in love and awe at her baby, says it all.

My husband is also supporting me. The papers are here with a cup of tea  and he is off to buy something for dinner that we don’t need to cook. While my body feels awful, my spirit has never felt better. Many thanks to all both seen and unseen who are making my day!

Such a lovely day even the kangaroos are up and about!

I am loving just sitting watching everyone enjoying life.
