The MAGIC of KINDNESS ……

13497558_1653732211618649_4058488115813568463_oKindness is the capacity of an individual to act from a place of genuine concern for oneself and others. Qualities of kindness include empathy, compassion, generosity and consideration. In our home, my children and I discuss the importance of acting kindly with the intention of making a positive difference in our world. We believe that being ‘kind’ is a choice made from the belief that every one of our actions ~ influences others.

On a recent holiday I witnessed this sentiment of ‘kindness’ demonstrated by my daughters and it literally took my breathe away. Away from their learning environment, their home with absence of family faces and friends they offered kindness from pure intention, unprompted by myself.

Our daily routine of meandering the shoreline was habitually followed by a stop at a bustling cafe. The first morning a waiter connected to my children’s unease, as they eyed the queue of busy professionals shuffling side to side impatiently waiting to order their coffees. The waiter instantly calmed them with a loud cheery, ‘Good morning lovely girls. Once we take these orders, I’m going to ask you what you would like. Won’t be long’. His excitement was almost frowned upon as people restlessly shuffled and continued to speak on phones. Too busy for morning chatter! Two patrons were even rude enough to dismiss this waiter’s energy and direct their orders to the co-waitress.

Mark, as he introduced himself, recommended a colossal world of flavours to my girls and they were thrilled. Mark’s speech was slurred and his hand jerked back and forth as he wrote a name on their order. Genuinely transfixed by the joy in Mark’s eyes and his enthusiasm for the store’s products, my daughters didn’t seem to notice any of the waiter’s impediments. Our shakes were soon after hand-delivered to our table, by Mark. The delivery was a little awkward in movement, but again unnoticed. My girls whooped with delight. Mark’s face was alight with such purity, that I fought back tears. I was overwhelmed by a total feeling of oneness.

Everyday we stopped at this cafe. And everyday my girls waited to be served by this special person ~ who not only paid an earnest interest in them and what they were doing, but who remembered what drinks they liked and excitedly told them about what they should try. There was a day when Mark was absent, the girls remarked that their shakes did not taste the same. They lacked ‘connectedness’.

On our final day the girls took extra long with their order. We sat at our table by the window and flicked through photos we’d taken. We laughed. We chatted. We reminisced over our days together. We all savoured the taste of our delicious shakes. Standing to leave we saw Mark sitting at a table enjoying a work break. I stopped by his table to shake his hand in gratitude for the last nine days of excellent service. My youngest daughter then said ‘Thank you for bringing sunshine to our every morning’. My middle daughter said ‘your shakes are the BEST’, and my eldest daughter looked at Mark and said to him ‘I love that you are brave in a world that judges. That you are YOU – I am going to take that back home with me’. Mark stood up and bowed his head and in his broken speech said ‘thank you angels for gracing me with your kindness and love. You have had my days very happy’.

I think of all the learning opportunities we enable our children. The options. The advantages. The education. And then I witness this. This play of kindness. A true sense of authenticity. The demonstration of connecting. Individuals each shining their light. The pure intention of making a difference ~ and it is these moments that are above everything else.

HEALING POWER OF KINDNESS

HEALING POWER OF KINDNESS

Kindness of spirit ~ comes from a genuine & sensitive place. Being kind may be perceived as a weakness by others, but the way in which we treat, regard, consider and speak to others, is one of our strongest influences. I believe there is no greater quality ~ than the act of kindness. Being kind creates a true sense of happiness and satisfaction.

Share your kindness. Just a small act of kindness can impact our world. Our actions shape the way we are living. Different actions create different results; acts of anger and aggression will bring hatred and fighting, acts of genuine kindness will evoke love and compassion.

Performing acts of kindness encourages others to be kind, producing a ripple effect ~ a circle of kindness. Kindness can spread. Be kind.

Treating each child as a unique individual

Treating each child as a unique individual

Screen Shot 2016-07-05 at 12.15.29 pm

We were all created as completely unique and special in our own way. We are all equal in the very fact that we are each different.  This is crucially fundamental in raising our children.

Each and every child is special, with unique combinations of abilities and needs. Parenting requires that we treat each child as a unique individual. Respecting a child’s individuality means displaying a genuine acceptance of that child as a unique creation ~ who has unlimited potential within them to fulfil their true life’s purpose.
A child who is embraced for their exclusive attributes, accepted for their differences, welcomed for the way they see our world, applauded for dancing to the beat of their own drum; is a child who flourishes in their uniqueness. These children develop a greater sense of self-confidence and self-esteem.

Discovering our children, what makes them tick and what excites them, without any comparison to their siblings or others, I believe is true magic. What a magnificent contribution parents can make to humanity, through consciously raising wholesome children that we don’t simply regard as an extension of ourselves.

BREAK FREE with the New Gemini Moon Nov 25th

BREAK FREE with the New Gemini Moon Nov 25th

 

A FULL MOON occurs on Wednesday, November 25, 2015.

Feeling like you want to BREAK FREE? The New Moon this week is here to help. The Gemini Moon exactly opposes the Sagittarius Sun, creating a conflict between; Gemini representing the “lower mind” and Sagittarius representing the “higher mind”. The Gemini aspect encourages us to think logically, and the Sagittarius perspective entices us to think ‘outside of the box’. So, we may feel quote juxtaposed with our internal thoughts, (perhaps over thinking), with a feeling of plunging, stepping out, going BIG. This Full Moon is about communication, our attitude, and the enticement of our adventurous side. Something has been building inside of us, pinning us down, and now the new Full Moon will help us let go and let it out. This is a brilliant Moon to release, what no longer serves us. The next two weeks, we will discover what this means for each us. In the meantime, we must navigate this new terrain, talking things out and listening well.

LOVE vs. FEAR

LOVE vs. FEAR

Understanding love is a process. Often it means transcending self-imposed limitations and past experience imprints before we can truly expand in full heart. It entails a personal and shared journey filled with tremendous personal growth, extraordinary challenges, bounty and absolute unique experiences of life and self.

Navigating through my own spiritual journey, I have grasped the duality between love and fear. In every moment we are either in a state of love or in a state of fear. Where there is fear there is no room for love. Where there is love there is no room for fear. My own indentation of fear was prominently embedded deep in my subconscious from very early childhood. Fear constantly paralysed my expansion as I adapted habitual emotional responses in situations and relationships that disarmed me. Even though I have often relied on the ‘fight or flight’ emotional instinct of my brain for survival, higher reason and mortality can only be actualized in a state of love. Shifting from fear, to living a life of love has been the most incredible transformation in my own personal journey.

Exterminating my natural fear inclinations was an expedition through many, many layers, requesting a changed mindset, patience and dedication.

  • Practicing the art of mediation has been my most powerful vehicle. Regular mindfulness practice, has allowed my mind and nervous system repose in profound silence, clearing blocks and dissolving stubborn obstacles.
  • Past Life Regression Therapy via Brian Weiss workshops enlightened my spiritual growth staggeringly. Experiencing past life incarnations was a gateway to understanding my current life, to healing my current afflictions and renewing my ongoing evolvement.
  • Attending a Doreen Virtue, Angel Intuitive workshop. During a group ‘healing addiction’ mediation, not sugar, nor caffeine, but fear raised its ugly head! The awareness the meditation delivered was phenomenal.
  • A profound Quantum Consciousness experience with my spiritual teacher, Melissa Haymes, allowed me to tap into my own personal wisdom, layers of consciousness and cosmic consciousness. I received instant insight. I physically wretched my black core of ‘fear’ at the end of the session, liberating me metaphysically and emotionally.

Letting go of my addiction to fear has been a personal battle. A liken it to a child relinquishing their ‘blankie’. The touch of it was an innate comfort that had become habitual. Surrendering fear and reclaiming more personal power has allowed me back home to myself. To my true, authentic being. To my divine nature of pure love.

Love is state of being. Love is for others, love is for you, love is for our children, love is for our neighbours, love is for nature, and love is for all. We are all connected. And then when we encounter a cautionary situation or person, we can refrain and remain in our state of love. From this loving place within, we can choose how to respond or not respond.

I read in a Wayne Dyer book, which resonated deeply with me, “Fear knocked on the door; love answered, and no one was there”.

Live from a place of PURE LOVE.

Love and light and blessings,

Sarah xx
