Ramblings about life . . .

What I share about my life is simply to help reinforce the understanding that it is possible to live with love and laughter, in between the tough times.

Life is what we make of it, no matter how harrowing. We accept and embody this with-in ourselves, thereby allowing the energy to manifest outwardly in our reality.

It starts with each one of us as an individual to form the collective consciousness.

Be the dream.

We honour the light and the life within you.

Please be aware - I upload other bloggers' posts and then delete after a month. This is my journey and others help me understand where I am, until they become irrelevant (a few posts excepted).

Respectful tact pays off

I view the improvements going on within the Sleep Clinic as a microcosm of the current/future improvements going on in the world.

The red-tape and bureaucracy of the hospital has always had us scratching our heads with its complicated pathways of getting anything done. The Sleep Clinic used to mirror this, but is now flowing better and is completely transparent.

Laurie Penny: The Unforgiving Minute

I came across this excellently written article. She has nailed it in a way I've never been able to express.

Change of mind-set

We have some new neighbours that moved in about two weeks ago.

They've had more fights than the amount of days they've lived there. There are two little kids that the woman yells and swears at regularly, when she is not screaming at the guy, who never seems to say anything but leave the house, before slamming the door that the whole neighbourhood reverberates with.

Thor Ragnarok

Traevis and I went to see Thor Ragnarok on Friday night.

Lol...typical Kiwi sense of humour with Taika Waititi as director.

It was a lot of fun.

We pondered whether the rest of the world would get the humour. I know it would have been funny to me whilst living in the UK, but now that I've lived in NZ for a while, I so get the depth of the humour. It doesn’t matter though, does it? As long as it’s enjoyable to whom ever is watching.

One thing about the comic movies, they draw on some amazing music from the previous century.

I've not followed Inelia Benz in years, but this popped up on my FB feed.

Ascension 101: October 2013

You have no idea how excited I am to be able to share this information with you.  I invite you to look at it with a sense of sharing a story, dream, myth, novel or memory.

This topic is something I have been looking at for years now, and the information has been coming in bits and pieces all this time, the latest piece arrived as I was preparing for my monthly class over at AWAKEN Academy: Ultradimensional Incarnation.

Jenny Schiltz: Energy Update - Letting It All Go

22 October 2017

The change in the air is palatable. We know that things are moving much quicker now and there is a weight of responsibility with this knowledge. We are being asked to let go of it all. All that we thought we were, all that we identify with and all the limitations we have put on ourselves.

Celia Fenn: The Triple Gateway

The Triple Gateway Initiation, the Time Capsule Awakening and Stepping into your New Soul Mission

Beloved Light Family, the shifts and transformations on your Earth continue to accelerate. There is much confusion and uncertainty as the old systems begin to fail and break down and the new begins to emerge into manifestation. At this stage, the collapse of the old may seem more evident than the rise of the new, but be assured that the New Earth is gaining in power as its comes into manifestation.
At this time, you are passing through what we call The Triple Gateway and the Initiation into your Augmented and Higher Soul Mission at the 11/11 Gateway on the 11th of November.

Redwoods Treewalk, Rotorua, New Zealand

Mid July we went to Rotorua for a weekend - Ash, Traev, Jack, Greg and I.

One of the places we visited was the Redwoods Treewalk. I have a fear of heights, but was determined to do it. Wasn't too bad until they started jumping on the rope walks which freaked me out somewhat!

Oh and it was bloody cold...obviously as it was the middle of winter!

Jenny Schiltz: Time of Surrender and Great Growth

2nd October 2017 

This blog has been a long time coming because I’ve been searching for the words to help memorialize this time. The only way that I can describe this time accurately is to say that it is one of surrender. We have never experienced this type of energy before and it is literally changing everything. It is simultaneously asking us to let go and receive all that we are, all at the same time. It is asking us to let go of how we think things should be in this process; how they should feel and how they should look (particularly out there). 

Long eventful winter

It's been a long and very eventful winter down here in the southern hemisphere.

Taking on the position of Team Leader, completely making over the Sleep Clinic - how it operates, it's protocols, re-arranging the configuration of rooms, interviewing and training new staff, meeting after meeting, etc., feeling so knackered after long hard hours of work putting everything into place. And then to top it all, our daughter leaving to go back to Sydney, the neglect of my husband, son and daughter. Pure exhaustion trying to fit in Skype conversations with family and friends in other parts of the world, juggling visits with family and friends here. Mostly everyone has been very understanding, supportive and not too demanding as I find my feet. It was my need to always be perfectly on top of everything that was not only (I realise now) impossible, but silly. But...I'd do it again in the blink of an eye.

As we come out of winter, and it lightens more each day, I've stopped working overtime. I now do four full days, with a half day on a Friday. This gives me space and time to wind down for a pleasant weekend, before Monday arrives and the madness descends.

It sounds a bit whingey, but really I've enjoyed every minute, even the not so great bits that do occur because they give me a chance to notice where I'm lacking and change the energy around it.

It's taken a while for me to find my feet, assert myself as a leader (in a gentle way of course lol) and make the Sleep Clinic's profile higher than it was. We are now sporting a new uniform with Sleep Clinic written in silver across our chest. The team has slowly started rallying around in support, picking up the slack for me. I suppose it was a case of watching how I dealt with things and seeing if I could rise to the occasion or not.

I've learnt to navigate the politics of the hospital without pissing off too many people...that I am aware of, but still getting what I want.

My line manager often visits saying she enjoys being part of a success story because it lifts her up. It's a happy place that I'm pleased to be part of.

Both of us have far reaching plans for the future...


Strangely, or maybe not with the energies around these days, despite being very excited and happy about the future, I woke feeling very heartsore and homesick for the UK.

Greg suggested a visit to a garden that we've never been to before. Oh my, it was like being back in the UK. I loved it so much. We spent the afternoon wandering around soaking up the atmosphere, reminiscing. I feel so much better having gotten over that hump and am now back to being enthusiastic about being here.

I'm still standing

I am loving every moment, well most moments, in the position.

I've always been shy and, what most would call, aloof. That has changed without me noticing. I find myself being pushed into situations with strangers and to my surprise, I'm okay with it.

The British-ness of being British

Every so often, I get hit with a wave of homesickness for the UK, for being surrounded by British-ness, English accents in all their various forms, the subtle and not so subtle humour, the ability to laugh at themselves, English gardens, houses...just everything, including the weather.

De-cluttering and moving forward

The first two weeks in the position of Acting Team Leader has been quite a challenge, an exciting challenge. I was starting to get a bit bored with my job, feeling like I needed more stimulation and boy, did I get it in bucketloads!!

The next stepping stone

It's been an up and down week full of surprises and uncertainties.

I'd not heard anything from the business manager since her answer to my email last week. I was starting to worry that maybe I was jumping the gun in assuming.

Acting Team Leader proposal

I took the bull by the horns yesterday afternoon.

Quite simply put, it seemed that nothing was being put in place once our manager leaves tomorrow. Place is in an uproar cos no-one is taking charge and making decisions.

It is stressing everyone out.

Personalities and perceptions

Personality profiling has come to my attention again.

When my kids enrolled at the Steiner/Waldorf schools in South Africa (and later in the UK) they used this profiling to understand each child in the class. I found it fascinating.

Gridlock and Responsibility

Richard's in Melbourne this weekend. Says it's a great city with a good vibe.

But...he misses Hamilton and its laid back life.

Haha...I said I'd gotten a bit freaked this last week as instead of 5 cars on the road there were 10!

Smoke and mirrors

We had our second meeting early this morning. It was very long and extremely fruitful.

The whole change is and has been handled with compassion and understanding, and....they listen, actually listen, take note and ask for/make suggestions. Things are crawling out of the woodwork that have the managers going :-0.

Lawn mowing service

Greg and I have this ongoing "growly" issue about the lawn mowing service.

They've been mowing the lawn every two weeks (except winter time) since I moved in March last year.

He hates that we are paying someone else to do the lawn. Why? I still haven't gotten a proper answer from him and every two weeks when they come to do it, we have this growly session about it.
