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!

“What happened to you Magdalene? You look so fresh today!” These were the words of one of my colleagues as we held a zoom meeting on the 2nd week of working from home. It was nice that she noticed because I started my 2nd week of working from home with the mindset that I will practice self-care, apply my make-up and dress up as though I was going to the office. This happened because the week before that, I was so busy trying to figure out how to work through new technologies that I barely had the time to comb my hair properly. By the of the first week, I was exhausted and determined not to repeat the same error!
Tonight, I am holding the vision that we will be champions in this fight against the coronavirus.
