To The Lonely, The Sick, The Depressed…

lonely heartsDear friend,

If you have found yourself on this blogpost, then it may be you are currently going through particularly challenging aspects in particular areas in your life. You may be feeling like you are battling huge tidal waves alone, with no one to turn to, you may be experiencing sickness, which after all is your body’s intelligent way of showing you that some particular aspect within your life is currently imbalanced, or you may be feeling depressed, feeling like there is no way out, feeling like no matter what you do, you are faced with big closed doors.

We are all currently going through challenging times, even though these are presented to each of us through different circumstances. Our old beliefs, our old pattern of thoughts, are all being challenged. We are finding ourselves re-thinking old value systems. We are all feeling an urge to find our true selves, to shed the aspects of ourselves which have been imposed upon us through our childhood experiences, and to seek what resonates with our true selves, a higher calling.

During these challenging times it becomes hard to hold on. At times we may feel we are slipping into a deep dark pit, and no matter how much we try to reach up, there seems to be no-one there willing to reach down to help you back up.

My friend, if you are feeling that this is happening to you, then this blogpost is for you.

No matter how alone you may feel, you are never alone. When we open ourselves to help, there is always something or someone who can help us through. It could be a helping hand, it could be a song, it could be a smile, a hug, a good word of advice, an image…

I have to admit that I have also had my world shattered just a couple of weeks ago. It all came to me as a shock, something I felt I couldn’t survive. My life had just started to seem hopeful, miracles had started to happen and I had started to feel alive like I hadn’t felt in years. Yet my life was shattered in an instant. I couldn’t believe it was happening to me. My life felt like it was now over. I felt desperation.

I had been working on positive affirmations and on keeping a positive approach towards whatever happens in life for the past three years and even more-so these past months. Yet for a day all came crumbling down. My life felt like it got ruined completely.

But, even through these deep feelings of despair, a voice inside kept telling me that this shattering incident has happened for a reason, even if beyond my current understanding. There was still hope. So although it took me about a day to try to get back up on my feet, I did eventually find the courage to struggle back up. I opened myself to the possibility that all I need will come to me at the perfect time and place. I opened myself to the possibility that there are people who do care, who will still be there for me even though I have to leap through troubled waters, people who don’t run away at the first problem that arises. And by having done this, I have allowed more and more blessings in my life, no matter how hard my circumstances have become.

And now I turn to you, my friend. If you feel like all is crumbling down, look up and reach out. If you do, there you will find people who are willing to go out of their way to help you through. Just believe. Believe that you are worthy. Believe that you deserve help, love, care. Think positive, and work towards keeping a positive approach no matter what. Open your eyes to the countless blessings that are coming your way. Open your arms to embrace life’s miracles. Be open to divine guidance, divine love. Feel the love that the Universe wants to surround you with.

Before I end this blogpost, I would love to thank my Angels…not only the Angels from the Angelic Realm (who I truly believe in), but also to the Angels in my life, human Angels like me and you, who have not run away from me when things went wrong, but who stayed and helped me back up on my feet. I honestly feel so grateful to these Angels, so much that I have no words to express the right amount of gratitude  that I have within me for them. Most probably, without these Angels in my life I would probably not have made it through these hard times. From the bottom of my heart, Thank You! <3 xxx

I would love to end today’s blogpost with a song that came to me during one of the hardest moments I have encountered these past few days. It came to me as consolation, and I am sure that you will feel the consolation through these sung words too. Listen carefully…

Much love and light sent your way…and remember, never ever give up!

Debby Ryan Lyrics “Open Eyes”

Look around, it’s deadly night
You’ve been losing every fight
You’re hope is, feeling broken
You’re feet are rough, they’re scraped and bruised
But still have strength to take you through,
Into,
The dark[Chorus:]
Just close your eyes
And push right through
I know it’s tough right now
This was meant for you
When the clouds are gone
Not a shadow in sight
You’ll be drenched in the sun
With open eyes(Woah-oh-oh) [x4]At the beach, the waves will crash
Tuck and grab and pull you back
The sun may, be covered in gray
The sand will itch, itself may burn
Hurricane will take it’s turn
Until,
The dawn

[Chorus:]
Just close your eyes
And push right through
I know it’s tough right now
This was meant for you
When the clouds are gone
Not a storm insight
You’ll be drenched in the sun
With open eyes

[X2]
So close your eyes, shut them tight
Let it be, and it will fade away (fade away)
Push on though the strength in you
Let it be, and wish it all away (all away)

With open eyes,
Open wide,
It’s all good now, watch it fade away,
Day by day

Just close your eyes
And push right through
I know it’s tough right now
This was meant for you
When the clouds are gone
Not a storm insight
You’ll be drenched in the sun
With open eyes.

What’s In Your Pants…

whats in your pantsOkay, I think this is by far the most weird, most outrageous title I have come out with so far here on my blog…truth is, I have been thinking on this subject for two days now, and I wanted to share with you some thoughts that I’ve had lurking within my mind.

We live in a society where we are constantly pressured into thinking that we should always be the best we can be, constantly being top notch, perfectly groomed, wearing the best clothes we can afford, coated with the perfect makeup to hide our natural ‘flaws’.

Same goes with ‘what’s in your pants’. There are men who consider themselves ‘men’ by what is hidden ‘down there’, as if that is the only thing that makes them macho enough to attract those around them. Similarly, there are women who consider themselves ‘women’ by their chest perfection, or the way they are able to seduce those around them.

While there is nothing wrong with being physically attractive, the physical  is not all. Unfortunately, due to certain expectations that society and mostly the media has instilled in us, we tend to rate our own potentiality on this outside physical stuff.

What’s in your pants doesn’t determine how ‘good’ you are or how irresistible you are.

Take for example a man who feels all macho, feels that he is a ‘babe magnet’. Society may uplift him to look like a male role model. Yet what goes on behind closed doors may be far from exemplary, maybe he is constantly degrading the one who he had promised to care for, to love and to cherish. Maybe he feels so powerful that he makes this person feel like rubbish, and through his behaviour she gets to feel helpless, no energy to get back up from the ‘dirt’ she feels she is buried in.

Similarly, take a woman who society has also uplifted into how a woman should be. She may be amazing from the outside, yet it could be she feels like everyone should bow down to her, to act on her commands, who uses her beauty and body to get whatever she wants.

The message I would like to convey with this blogpost today is this…

You, reading this, if you find yourself troubled by society’s expectations, relax. It is not the physical that is important. The physical changes and won’t last forever. Focus on what is in your heart. Be love. Respect everyone around you. Be helpful to those who need it. Be responsible and take responsibility for your actions. Follow your passions no matter what others around you may think or accuse you of. Do what you feel is right. Act with love. Be honest and genuine in everything you do.

Remember that whatever you send out you get back. Open your eyes to your surroundings and the people you are constantly attracting into your life. If you find yourself attracting people who feel artificial, then there must be something within you that is also artificial. Similarly, if you act dishonestly, you shouldn’t complain about attracting dishonest people in your life, for it is what you give out that you attract. Your life, your circumstances, and the people you get to meet are in a way a reflection of what you are giving out, a reflection of who you are.

Remember that once you make a decision to be true to who you truly are, the Universe will start to reflect that back to you. Determine what you want to attract in your life, be a reflection of what you want to attract, be open to receive it, and keep a positive mindset no matter what happens to come into your life.

These times that we are living in are times of drastic changes. Collectively we are all one, and the world is currently experiencing deep changes. Many of us are experiencing new callings, new urges to make a difference in this world. The best way to do this on an individual basis is to start being observers of what is going on around us, and it starts from observing ourselves first. That is when we can start work towards bringing out the best version of ourselves into this world, which in return will bring about drastic positive changes all around the world, not just for us, but for our future generations.

What better song to end this blogpost with, than Britt Nicole’s Gold…enjoy!

 

BRITT NICOLE LYRICS

“Gold”

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, ohYou were walking on the moon, now you’re feeling low
What they said wasn’t true, you’re beautiful
Sticks and stones break your bones, I know what you’re feeling
Words like those won’t steal your glow, you’re one in a millionThis, this is for all the girls, boys all over the world
Whatever you’ve been told, you’re worth more than gold
So hold your head up high, it’s your time to shine
From the inside out it shows, you’re worth more than gold
(Gold gold, you’re gold)
You’re worth more than gold
(Gold gold, you’re gold)Well everybody keeps score, afraid you’re gonna lose
Just ignore they don’t know the real you
All the rain in the sky can’t put out your fire
Of all the stars out tonight, you shine brighter

This, this is for all the girls, boys all over the world
Whatever you’ve been told, you’re worth more than gold
So hold your head up high, it’s your time to shine
From the inside out it shows, you’re worth more than gold
(Gold gold, you’re gold)
You’re worth more than gold
(Gold gold, you’re gold)

So don’t let anybody tell you that you’re not loved
And don’t let anybody tell you that you’re not enough
Yeah there are days that we all feel like we’re messed up
But the truth is that we’re all diamonds in the rough
So don’t be ashamed to wear your crown
You’re a king you’re a queen inside and out
You glow like the moon, you shine like the stars
This is for you, wherever you are

Oh, oh, yeah, yeah, oh, oh,
You’re gold

This, this is for all the girls, boys all over the world
Whatever you’ve been told, you’re worth more than gold
(So hold your head) So hold your head up high,
It’s your time to shine
From the inside out it shows, you’re worth more than gold
(gold gold, you’re gold)
You’re worth more than gold
(gold gold you’re gold)

So don’t be ashamed to wear your crown
You’re a king you’re a queen inside and out

Trust Your Soul…It Knows!

pizap.com10.91344787692651151396199956957Trust…

They say once trust is broken, it can never be fully fixed.

They say that once trust is broken by someone we had faith in, it becomes even harder to trust someone else.

True, one can easily want to give up trusting others after this happens, and reasonably so. By refusing to trust again, we feel more secure, we feel protected, knowing that if we do not trust, we won’t get hurt again.

Personally I have had many issues with trust. I have found myself thinking I should stop trusting altogether, so as not to go through painful experiences in my life. Yet I have come to realise something…

See, I have realised that by trying to protect myself from being hurt again, I may give up experiences that can help me grow.

Okay, so I know that nobody would like to risk getting hurt. Yet no experience is void. Each person that comes into our lives, whether we are treated right or wrong, we will still learn. If a person treats us wrongly, we get to realise that we need to work on self love, to increase our self worth. A lesson in itself. I believe that whatever comes to us is a reflection of how we see ourselves. If we do not treat ourselves right, if we do not nurture ourselves and the bodies we are in, then how can we expect to be treated right?

This post has been actually inspired by a song I woke up with in my head yesterday…Once Upon A Dream from Disney’s Sleeping Beauty, which video I will embed at the bottom of this post…and if you have been following my blog for quite some time now, you surely know that most of my inspirations come to me like this 😉

Although the song itself doesn’t talk about trust, what struck me most was the first part, when Aurora says, “I’m not supposed to talk to strangers, but we met before”…

This sentence reminds me of the voice of the soul…

I truly believe that if we listen to the voice inside our hearts, the voice of our soul, we learn to trust again no matter how hard issues of trust have been on us in the past.

We trust all the time. We trust that the Universe provides us with all that we need. We trust so much that we do not worry about whether our next breath will be there after the current one, because we know that it will be there. We do not even realise how many breaths we take daily, because we take it all forgranted, because we trust.

If we learn to live in the moment and go with the flow of life, we will not worry about whether we should trust or not, because we know that whatever life throws at us is for our own highest good. Because we know that with every experience comes a lesson, and with every lesson we gain wisdom.

So if you are one who are at a dilemma right now, finding it hard to let yourself go with the flow, and finding it hard to trust again, think about it. Go back through your life so far. Think about how many wonderful people you have met and have been blessed with because you trusted. Then think about situations that have hurt you. True, you may have had a hard time getting back up after being hurt, yet you are alive and you are stronger, for you have learnt to value yourself even more due to having gone through that pain. And if you feel you have learned nothing from such experiences, think about it again and find the lesson there was within.

Most of the lessons we incarnate here on earth to learn from, will still keep happening over and over again until we learn whatever lessons we were supposed to take from them. This is in fact why sometimes we meet people who complain that the same experience keeps happening over and over again to them with just different persons. It happens because the lesson they should be learning hasn’t been uncovered yet.

So next time you find yourself in a dilemma whether you should trust or not, find some quiet time, sit or lie down, relax, close your eyes and think…should I trust him/her? Then listen to what your soul tells you. If you feel you should, trust your gut and go for it.

Time will tell…it could be a new experience that will uncover an important lesson for you that will help you grow…

Or it may evolve into something so beautiful, so magical, so unique, that time will feel like it has stopped for you so you can experience the total bliss that you have always dreamt of having for yourself. When that happens, consider it a gift from the Universe for having allowed yourself to trust again.

Once Upon a Dream
From “Sleeping Beauty”
Music by Tchaikovsky
Lyrics by Sammy Fain and Jack Lawrence

I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream
I know you, the gleam in your eyes is so familiar a gleam
Yet I know it’s true that visions are seldom all they seem
But if I know you, I know what you’ll do
You’ll love me at once, the way you did once upon a dream

But if I know you, I know what you do
You love me at once
The way you did once upon a dream

I know you, I walked with you once upon a dream
I know you, the gleam in your eyes is so familiar a gleam
And I know it’s true that visions are seldom all they seem
But if I know you, I know what you’ll do
You’ll love me at once, the way you did once upon a dream

To All Lonely Hearts…With Much Love

lonely heartToday’s blogpost is dedicated to all lonely hearts…if you, reading this blogpost today, feel that you are one lonely heart, then sit down, relax, read on and let yourself go into the upcoming words.

So, you are feeling lonely. You are feeling lost. Nobody understands you. You are screaming from within, you are crying desperately for help, yet no one seems to be hearing you.

You look around for someone who can help pull you up from your misery, yet all those around you seem to be occupied with anything other than you. You feel unimportant. Irrelevant. You have become a ‘nobody’.

Your heart yearns for love. You feel a desperate need to be loved and cared for. Appreciated. You yearn for arms to hold you, to not let you go, to show you that you are the best thing that has ever happened to them. Yet the only arms you can find are the comfort of a pillow soaked with saddened tears.

lonely heartsYou do your best to uplift others who are feeling low at this point in time…yet there is nobody out there who seems to care to uplift you.

Sadness…

Desperation…

Misery…

 

STOP!

This is not the way to go! Yes, you may feel sad, lonely. You may be feeling all this confusion. Yet you are not realising that you are acting as a victim. You are yearning for someone to come save you from the misery you feel you have fallen into. You are putting all your trust in others, as if there may be some superhero ready to come save you.

Well, there IS a superhero, and this superhero is YOU!

You will keep on falling into this pit of darkness unless you stop acting like a victim and start to put all your faith in yourself. You have the power to stand back up on your feet any time you choose to. You are the one who can ultimately save yourself.

Think about it. With regards to the World Population according to Wikipedia, as of today, it is estimated to number 7.134 billion by the United States Census Bureau (USCB). Can you imagine how many more potential friends you still have out there? Can you imagine how different your life will be if you open up to more possibilities? To more potential friends?

Do not feel alone. You are not the only lonely heart out there. There are others who are going through the same darkness as you are. There are many others who are yearning to find someone like you with whom they can talk and be listened to. Get it?

lonely heartsSee, the problem is that when we find ourselves falling into a depressive state, what happens is we build tall, solid walls around us. We become so afraid of hurting ourselves even more that we enter into a cocoon state so as to protect ourselves from further hurt. The thing is that when we do this, we close out any other potential friends who would be more than willing to listen to you and offer you words of advice or just a shoulder to lean on.

This ending year I have been blessed by quite a good amount of people coming to me for a word of advice or just needing a friend to listen to them. I’ve even had suicidal people I never knew before contacting me, yearning for someone to show them some care. I am happy to say that most of these new friends have made drastic changes in the way they see life today. Today they are full of vitality, eager to live, happily moving on. I am so very proud of them all!

These people thank me. They keep mentioning that I have ‘saved’ them. The only saving however didn’t come from me…it came from themselves. It came because they managed to see past the darkness and into a whole new light. They managed to uncover their true potential. All I did was offering a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen and a friendly word of advice, but the drastic change came from themselves.

My dear friend, do not feel discouraged. No matter what is troubling you right now, no matter what words have brought you tears, you are far greater than you can imagine!

If you are feeling alone, do not be shy to reach out. There are many out there who are willing to just be there to listen to you. And if you can’t find anyone you can trust and feel a need to connect with me, feel free to contact me anytime. I guarantee that whatever you share with me stays with me. I won’t judge you. I won’t get angry with anything that you may say. I am here just as a friend, willing to listen to whatever you feel a need to say.

Let go of your fears. Break the walls that you have built around you for fear of being hurt. Use all that you have learned from past hurtful experiences in your favour, to move forward. It is okay to seek your own happiness. It is okay to please yourself by pursuing your own dreams, even if it seems that those around you don’t agree with you. Your life, your choices.

No matter what past you’ve had, today is the day you take back your life. Start creating the life of your dreams, the life that YOU want to live. You have all the power necessary to go for all that makes your soul soar! Stop existing and start living! This is a new day. This is YOUR day! Make it count! You ARE worth it!

 

Much love to you and your loved ones,

Claire

 

P.S. Here is a song dedicated to all of you who may be feeling a bit low right now…break those walls and let your true selves shine <3

CONCRETE ANGEL – GARETH EMERY

Let me breath you in, and breath the words in your mouth
Inside your shivering, the silence shouts so loud
I just want to, I just want to stay around
And while my heart beats, I promise I won’t let you down.

If I’m somewhere else it doesn’t mean that I don’t see
That you don’t trust yourself, that’s why you don’t trust me
It makes me crazy, when you’re crazy, you don’t speak
You think you know me, but what you know is just skin deep

If you keep building these walls, brick by brick towers so tall
Soon I won’t see you at all, until the concrete angel falls
I knew who you were from the start, but now I don’t know who you are
Soon there will be nothing at all, until the concrete angel falls

What If We…

what if weAs I sit here writing this new blogpost, it is nearly the end of 2013.

We have been through a lot this year. This has been a year of trial, a year full of lessons, a year where many deep aspects of ourselves have been challenged, a year where we came face to face with the truth in multiple situations. 2013 closes the door to the older version of us.

As we step into 2014 we are encouraged to let go of the old version of ourselves by shedding all that is no longer necessary. Now that we have uncovered what no longer serves us, this is where we leave our baggage to move onto a better life where we are no longer afraid to face the truth, but we embrace it and become who we were destined to be.

2014 is going to bring up various life changes. It is going to challenge us. We will witness friendships that break, relationships that crumble, spiritual changes. More of us will feel challenged to voice our opinions with the aim to make our world a better place.

If you, reading this blogpost, feel an urge to do so, do not feel discouraged. True, it may feel like you are just one drop into the whole ocean…you may continuously ask yourself, “How can I bring up changes? Aren’t I just one person in the whole world?”

what if weYes you are, but you CAN make a difference.

2014 is the year where we are urged deep within, to step into a better place. We are here at this time living in this particular time because we are here to make a difference…and because we can!

Change starts with you, me and all others who feel this calling. We may be one voice, but in the end we know that we are all one and the same. Within our bodies are our souls. We are all connected. We are all one. If we voice our own thoughts, if we stand up for what we believe in, we may by our own actions encourage others to do the same.

It starts with us.

Let us make 2014 a year of change, a year where we are not ashamed to stop and help each other, a year where we are not afraid to stand up for those who don’t have a voice, a year where we don’t hold back from pointing out aspects within our systems that do need to change…a  year where our compassion towards all other living creatures reigns and brings up drastic changes for the better.

Let us make the future a better one for us, for all living creatures, and most importantly, let us create a better future for our own kids and all generations thereon.

I want to take this opportunity to wish you a great upcoming year 2014. Many blessings to you and your loved ones <3 xxx

What If We – Dina Garipova (Russia 2013 Eurovision Song Contest Entry)

What if I could change the path of time?
What if I had the power to decide?
What if I could make us unified?
If I, if I

What if we would open up the doors?
What if we could help each other more?
What if I could make you all believe?
If we, if we

What if we all opened our arms?
What if we came together as one?
What if we aimed to stop the alarms?
What if we chose to bury our guns?

Why don’t we always reach out to those
Who need us the most?

Together we can change the path of time
Together we have power to decide
The answer lies within our hearts and minds
Together, together

Together we can make a better place
On this little island in outer space
Together we can change the world forever

What if we all opened our arms?
What if we came together as one?
What if we aimed to stop the alarms?
What if we chose to bury our guns?

Let’s unite and make a change
Let’s unite around a new page
Come on sinners, come on saints, have faith
Why don’t we always reach out to those…

What if we all opened our arms?
What if we came together as one?
What if we aimed to stop the alarms?
What if we chose to bury our guns?

Why don’t we always reach out to those
Who need us the most?
