Keep in mind that our souls are eternal. We instinctively know what is wrong and what is right. Always tune in and listen deeply to your soul. Do you have to play a part in a situation? What is stopping you from playing your part?
My imagination gets activated during the hot summer months. Gardening is like meditation to my soul. If I have any problems at all, by the end of a day in the garden, my problems are less relevant and in some cases I’ve some solution or even forgotten about them! My charming little garden provide me with an unlimited canvas where I can add, subtract, multiply and divide plants based on colours, texture, blooming times – and even thinking ahead to how it will look like in the years to come. My imagination is so busy creating that as Micheangelo said: “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.”
One of my soul projects at the start of Covid-19 was to develop my digital skills and have the confidence to do some live shows and bring together like minded people over zoom to share views on various topics! This has kept me busier than I could have imagined but it is reinforcing for me that “when we are aligned with our soul mission, everything falls in place!”
When self-isolation started, one of the first items on my list of things to get was a bottle of wine. I am glad that I got only one!

My breaking news to you this morning… none of us are leaving this earth alive – now or a day later or 50 years later. The coronavirus is creating havoc but also creating opportunities for us to examine what is important in our lives. Our forefathers were called to fight wars for the freedoms which we have today and in the process, many lost their lives, some became amputates and many of them learnt to live with traumatic memories. Some returned to their loved ones in a different state than when they left. After WW11, women who had been traditional housewives become empowered to become nurses and to serve their countries in a variety of roles which the new frontier provided. Through the turmoil of wars, new opportunities were created and proved that we are more capable than we think we are. Each wave of crisis helps us to expand ourselves and the global village which we inhabitants of.
The hibiscus does not need seek any kind of reassurance from us to claim it’s divine beauty. It survives the winter and takes about four months after spring to bloom. It shows it’s magnificence by simply being itself. Those who have eyes for such beauty will find it and embrace it. Others may pass by unaware of it’s presence. Their lack of interest in it’s magnificence does not take away from it’s beauty or presence.
