Speak your truth …. it is more important than you think~

Tilly had arrived home and still the information about the Throat Chakra had her thinking.

Little did she know that when she going to mediation class would open her door to spirituality. There was no going back. This was they she found herself in the self-help section of a book store. She laughed because she had been so judgmental. previously thinking that only weird and whacky people, crazy alternative spiritualist went to this area.

But, she felt driven to get answers to her queries about getting sick if energy centres are blocked. Worse of all there is a chance of one’s health getting adversely affected.

Tilly has held back from telling the truth, particularly as a teacher and with her extended family? Could she really develop a disease if she kept doing this? She learned that there were a number of factor involved, like attitude, lifestyle, nutrition as well. Some people live sad unhappy lives feeling restricted and void of opportunities, so they think.

Her teacher said that the throat chakra is related to giving and receiving, as well as understanding and living the universal laws. Tilly needed to work at her own pace to find out more on the universe, consciousness and energy. Go slow. advised her teacher. Take your time and be discerning, only believe what feels right to you.

Finding better and diplomatic ways to communicate were high on her agenda. She wanted to stay well for years and years.

Cheers and Blessings

A man who ignored his spirituality while on Earth …

The man who strongly believed that it would be a nothing blank after death saw his mother and his brother in his hospital room, both had died a number of years ago. He was elated to see them but felt a little confused, he was so sure that life did not go on after dying. He knew that he was close to death, he felt so immeasurably weary after fighting the cancer for so long.

With one last breath he felt himself rising to the ceiling, he looked down and saw his family crying, his wife laying on his chest weeping, his tearful children looking down at him . “Look up, I am still alive.” But they did not hear.

The man’s mother and brother guided him to the light, leaving his earthly life to arrive in the most beautiful place he had ever seen. But, they kept going until he was on his own standing in front of a big scanner. It started to play, it was a movie about him and his life.

He saw how he put his business first over his wife and children, he was so intent to be successful financially and be influential. The man watched how he talked to his employees, he was sharp and biting in his comments, his employees were upset and hurt. He saw how he had spent so much time at meetings, business lunches, travelling away. His wife talked about spirituality, she was always so considerate and kind to others. He was always scornful and had no time to look after his soul. He had no time or patience for intuition.

The man felt himself moving, he was being taken to a place that he had earned for himself. It was not as beautiful as the first place, the colours were dimmer, the flowers were not as pretty. The house he walked into was small, not like his home on Earth. He realised that you sow what you reap was true.

If only he had tried to understand his spirituality, put some effort into it. He felt so regretful. The man had a lot of work to do and all the time in the world to raise his consciousness and evolve.

Stilling the mind ….. self-reflection

Occasionally it is just nice to sit and breath in the ocean view and the salt air. My body slowly becomes in sync with my mind, quiet and still. The busy bustle of the day slipping away. No energetic walking on the sand for me, let me connect with the universal consciousness through my deep and gentle breathing. Let me rest and slip into the zen of the moment.

Only me and my surf beach.

Love and Blessings

Negativity is catchy. Run, run …..

…….as fast as you can
You can’t catch me
I am the gingerbread man.

One of my personal goals is to avoid negativity because I find it harsh, a useless waste of time and goes against my positive outlook on life. But negativity is a force to be reckoned with, it is pervasive spreading from one person to the next like the plague. The amazing part is that people take it on board so easily. It is sneaky and creeps up on you without unawares like it did with me yesterday.

I was busily trying to figure out why my bike was making a little noise so here I am riding down the footpath when a voice calls out, “Hi Angie, come and say hello.” Being polite and never turning a quick chat in to her yard I rode. But, this was a bad move, she was tired, overworked and cranky with her partner. So instead of a happy little catch-up I was showered with upset poor me feelings and negativity.

So while I was sympathising with her plight I was at the same time excusing myself in the politest way possibly wishing that my nearest and dearest would only call me. Sadly he didn’t but I managed to leave as soon as I could.

The trouble is due to the fact that negativity is energy and you cannot get rid of energy so transmuting it to positive energy is the only solution. I emerged myself in positivity and optimism yesterday.

I will take her some flowers in a couple days for a happier chat hoping that she is feeling better.

Cheers – thank you for reading

Can you choose one sand sculpture over another?

It is only during the school holidays that children really create pieces of art in the sand. It must take them a while to make them. The beach becomes a gallery of sand art! The finished pieces give a refreshing fun ambience to the beach that is not normally there. I visualise kids hard at it creating clever 3 dimensional sculptures during playtime. Then in the late afternoon during my walk I enjoy looking at their finished products.

Which sculpture is the best? Is it possible to choose just one? They are all so creatively good. I can just picture the energy and fun that was put into each one. So let’s look at some more!

Which one would you choose?

Maybe the turtle heading down the beach to the ocean is a winner. The green leaf effect wins some points!

The mermaid is a hard one to beat. This sculpture would have taken a fair bit of time.

The good old sandcastle with the moat is an old time favourite. This sandcastle was seriously close to be washed away when I took this shot. It was one from 2016. I think the art sculptures are worth keeping and re-showing.

Which one of the four art sculptures is the first winner? I am not sure if I can! My option would be to make them all winners. I know, you might be saying that Angie Mitchell is no judge! You are so right! I like to give all the children a prize.

I thank all the children for their entertaining artwork. It is fun for them to make and fun for me to view them. They have to bring a smile to many walkers’ faces as they walk along this fantastic surf beach at the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.

Have a happy day.


One of those slow starts to the morning …..

Oh dear, this happens now and then, my eyes won’t open and my body won’t move. I am too tired to jump out of bed. Oh well, do I have to? No is the answer. My choice is to stay in my warm bed and have an extra hour of snoozing.

Then again maybe I look like this. I know I feel like it! Found this one on Facebook.

Hey, It is perfectly okay to have a sleepy start to the day or maybe I will have a sleepy kind of day. I reckon we all need a day out to do nothing but recoup and rest. I know that I feel much better the next day. I am usually the one who is springing up to raring and ready to face the bright new day.

But today is a rest day for me.



I have a passion to ride on Merry-Go Rounds….

This is no merry-go-round that I am use to in Australia,this is a magnificent magical carousel!

I found this carousel in a Frankfurt Christmas Market. Yes, we purposely went to Germany during winter to savour the Christmas festive time. For Australians that live in the sub-tropics the cold weather was embracing to say the least. We spent a marvellous couple of weeks travelling along The Romantic Road in the Bavarian country of Germany. There was some long distance walking intermingled with some driving.

I was not prepared for such a wonderful big ornate carousel. Fancy seeing one like this out of a movie or fairytale. Did I have a ride? I sure did and it was so much fun. I asked first of all of course if adults were allowed because I am accustom to only children being given entry to merry-go-rounds in Australia.

Did I have two rides – yes! Got to take advantage of the moment! The only challenge I had was getting on and off – I am not very tall with long legs. But I did it and have very happy memories, especially when I look at the photographs.

Check one happy Angie Mitchell riding around the carousel!




Acceptance is a good thing to do but not an easy one~

If you find that you have difficulty accepting some situations then you are not alone. It is very much a universal disappointed kind of feeling. If you ask the question why rest assure you are one of many asking the exact same question.

Of course there are numerous examples of peope not accepting certain events. They range from major life changing dramatic happenings to minor things that might just put one out. Accepting such events like death or unfortunate incidents like accidents, robbery or fire are mind boggling hard taking time, fortitude and energy to work through. The little everyday let downs like not getting a job, missing a flight or failing an exam may not take as much energy.

How one copes with any hardship or disappointment depends on one’s make-up.

Acceptance has to do with attitude. It is very human to momentarily feel emotionally upset at any bad news or let-downs. What is your normal way of behaving? Do you tend to be optimistic or pessimistic in your self-explanatory style. How you explain what happens has a direct impact on your feelings. If you think I’ve failed or this is the worse news ever then you are going feel sad, bad or down in the dumps. But, if you think it does not matter or is not the worse thing that can happen then you are likely to feel more upbeat. This more positive self-explanatory style leads individuals to finding solutions, which leads to good outcomes over all.

Getting stuck in the mud hampers acceptance and moving on. How long do you stay stuck is a personal choice.

A technique that helps one accept life’s let-downs or disappointments is to see them as tests or lessons that come your way. It is an opportunity to successfully deal with such tests. If you do not do this, expect them to keep happening, only on a much bigger scale. Interesting don’t you think? From my perspective I find it a a plausible explanation.



Discernment – how well are you mastering this skill?

The definition for discernment on Google is – the ability to judge well. What does judging well look like? Is becoming discerning a wisdom thing? Is it maturity? Is it having a good sense of picking another person’s character? Does the ability to discern develop with life experience or do you just have it? Or perhaps discernment continues to delude some people.

From my perspective discerning is an intrinsic intuitive ability combined with learned life experiences and one’s values and beliefs. It is a trial and error thing. It just happens as we go through our life journey; some people are more successful than others. It comes easier to some. Perhaps they learn more quickly from consequences.

A person’s personality is an undeniable factor. Like attract like or another saying is running with the crowd commonly occurs with some children and adults. Another common saying is; he/she is easily influenced is definitely signifying a sign of weakness and bad decision-making.

Decision-making is an important part of the equation with discernment. Fear can lead to making a decision to keep following a group no matter how unsavoury. The underlying thinking might be that it is best to belong no matter the consequences. Learning to listen to our inner selves is a an individual journey for each and everyone of us. It is all about free will.

Discernment is a valuable inner resource that always needs to be drawn on for life reasons and for spiritual reasons. Judge well and choose well!

Michael J Tamura gets to the core of the value of discernment in this quote. I always find his quotes very thought provoking and very timely. Thank you Michael J Tamura.

The value of deep breathing ~

We all know that we need to breathe in the air to live!

I have to admit that I was one of the many who took breathing for granted. That is until a number of years ago when I read a book called “We, The Arcturians” by Dr. Norma J. Milanovich. It was an intriguing book that resonated with me. it felt right reading this book.

What particularly grabbed my attention was the comment they made about humans being shallow breathers. And when I reflected about my own life at that time it rang true. I was also often in a hurry running to drop kids at school, rushing to meetings and getting from point A to point B.

Yes, I was guilty of being a shallow breather!

So, from that time on I set myself two challenges – reading more on the topic of deep breathing and to do some deep breathing every day.

It was very slow at first because it is challenging to change habitual behaviour. It certainly is for me. Initially I tried to do deep breathing when driving the car and when I stopped at red lights! Instead of listening to the car radio I would turn it off and breathe in and out slowly and deeply.

I confess that it was a bit of a hit and miss for several years.

But slowly and surely I have become better at deep breathing. I have also become much better at not being dictated by the clock. My daily practice of mediation, tibetan rites and yoga have helped enormously.

But…. rushing still happens now and then. So does my shallow breathing.

I believe that this is a part of living on this Earth where time is linear.
