Set your alarm clock to never ring

I was watching an episode of a television show I watch quite regular the other night and one of the characters said something that got me thinking. He said … “If you wake before the alarm goes off in the morning you must love what you do” Now I am sitting here in the dark of the morning about 20 minutes before my alarm is due to go off so I am thinking that maybe just maybe I love what I do. Sometimes I wish I didn’t love what I do so much because it does seem that I do wake up at least ten minutes before the alarm clock and when you have it set REALLY early to get up before the sun sometimes that is just a tad frustrating not to get that extra ten minutes sleep. It also is interesting how my internal clock has got set to the rising of the sun because it does change with the seasons so I now don’t have to get up quite so early and relish that sleep in.

Do you find that you wake before the alarm? Do you set an alarm? I often think I don’t even need to set my alarm but do just incase. Do you love what you do? If you don’t love what you do and you find it depressingly hard to get out of bed in the morning maybe it’s time to have a rethink on how you are living your life and make some changes. My life is super busy and complicated but I do love what I do and I have tried many times to NOT get up to take the sunrise shot even on days like today when there is cloud again and I think the sun isn’t coming out I can go back to bed. Nope can’t be done it may peak out for a minute and I have to be there to grab that minute.

Affirmations shine a clear focused energy on your dreams

Today’s sunlit oracle card that came out was …

AFFIRMATION

 

Bring the sun from behind the clouds to warm your day

Bring the sun from behind the clouds to warm your day

 

Description:

your sunlit memory today is bringing you AFFIRMATION is what is needed to keep the light and energy glowing inside you at all times even with clouds in your way positive vibes and energy will find a way to shine and highlight the problems with in those clouds. Daily affirmations can be a wonderful tool to get you focused on where you want to be. Enjoy the warmth and sunshine they bring.

 

Now I will not say that I am an expert on Affirming what I want out of this world far from it .

I struggle daily with voicing what I really want from this life.

I can imagine I am not alone in this as we all have different reasons for keeping ourselves from the dream that we really want.

I have read about affirmations from a million different sources and I know that 90% of the success help books today say that affirmations are a valuable tool in getting your mind focused on what you want.

I do know that when I actually do say affirmations and put them out into the world as silly as I feel doing it more often than not I have a GOOD day it may not be life changing but I am happier than when I didn’t say those words.

So what do we have to lose?

Feel silly for a few minutes a day by saying out loud what our hearts desire.

It can’t hurt and it may just help.

Write it down or better yet take a look at the New years goals package that is available and I can always adapt one of the images to read your affirmations.

If you are unclear about what you are wanting in life you can just start with affirming that ..

 

“Today is going to be a wonderful day and something amazing is going to happen”

 

If you need some help with finding your direction you can always ask the question of the Sunlit oracle cards through myself as I do indepth readings emailed to you using the cards bringing you the healing and inspiring power of nature.

Start with taking a look at this months oracle reading for everyone which is in a previous blog post HERE

Also you can visit Leonie Dawson’s wonderful website and purchase for under $10 USD a copy of the Incredible Year workbook and calendar it’s not to late to start going through all the exercises and finding out what you really want to affirm in this life.

Take the time to find the real you and explore where you want to go it’s worth it and make sure you affirm it every day until it is reality.

How to change your outlook when your standing still

Today’s oracle card was

Mists of Change

 

033 logo on

 

Description of sunlit oracle card :

your sunlit memory today is asking  you to consider the MIST OF CHANGE each day the sun rises and sets but each day is unique with time comes change it is up to you if it is to be a big change or small  you will never know the beauty of your life if you don’t get out there and live it from every different angle and along other avenues you can’t get beautiful dappled light in your life unless you surrender to a new change of view.  Time to find something new in your life and pursue it.

 

This card is telling us that no matter where we are in life there is always room to move and change.

You can always change you view even when your stuck in the one place.

 

Try this little exercise …

Go stand out in your back yard or in a park in your local area.

Once your feet are stable in a spot don’t move them.

Now look around how many different angles can you see the view from.

Crouch down …. Look up … twist to see the view behind …

Do you see all the different views?

Are they not all beautiful but different in their own way even though you are standing in the same spot.

When you feel like you are stuck and not moving in your life there is always a way to see a different view.

You don’t have to move mountains or across the country or change jobs to change the way you look at life and the joy and excitement you get out of life.

The other amazing thing is if you took that exercise and got the whole family to do it or a group of friends and got them all to write down or tell everyone what views they saw everyone would have different answers because everyone is unique and sees the world from their own view to start with.

So what way are you viewing the world?

Is there room for some change in your view?

Do you catch yourself thinking the negative about everything you see and hear?

When you see a beautiful beach scene do you think “paradise” or do you think “hot sandy and sharks” ?

It’s all in your attitude to your view and it is so easy to change that view.

The first step is to be aware of how your internal voice is talking to you.

Is it being a good positive influence on your life or is it always negative.

This can change your life just by catching yourself and saying something positive about every situation .

The second step is to actually physically change your view the sun will follow you wherever you go and it will still be the same sun but it will give you a different light in a different spot just like in today’s oracle card that dappled light was only possible by trial and error and moving my view to the right spot to get that light right.

You don’t have to move far or make major changes to have a BIG change in your life.

Try it today … would love to know about your experiences and what you saw when you tried the exercise.

Memories forever keepsakes to be treasured

Today the sunlit oracle card that came out was

 

Memories

 

029

 

Description :

your sunlit memory today is bringing you MEMORIES of all the wonderful sunfilled times in your life in the past and in the future Memories that are in your heart and caught on film to enjoy forever. Life is like a camera if you make a memory and it turns out bad just take another shot and make a new memory to keep forever. Your album is filled with great memories and more are on the way.

 

Seeing this card this morning it brings up lots of different emotions and areas of what memories mean to me.

My passion for photography started with a beautiful memory of part of my life and family when I was a single woman living alone with my beautiful Husky Misty by my side. Way back then it was the start of the internet and digital camera I being low on cash thought that getting one of those fancy little gadgets that took photos and doubled as a web cam was a great idea.

My first photo good photo was of Misty … I loved that dog and still do she is long gone now but will forever be in my memory and because of my new found passion I have many photos of her to remember her by.

I urge everyone to get many photos of their family and friends and fur kids to remember them by and at least once get some professional photos done even of the pets I did get some of Misty done the photographer thought I was crazy but he did it was not thought of much back then to photograph your pets but she was my child and one of my best friends I am so glad I did.

Memories are a beautiful thing but they can also haunt you and keep you back from memories of the beautiful Misty that drifts me through meeting a man and although that was a wonderful time and worthy of remembering it can also and probably still does in a way keep me from moving on because that memory is so deep and was great you can cling to it and think that it was the best memory and now it’s over nothing can compare so why try for something new with someone new but we should it will never compare to what has gone before but it could be wonderfully different and bring a lot of happy new memories .

Using memories where you have moved on like how when Misty went over the rainbow bridge I never thought I would find another kindred soul like her but eventually I was forced by family to bring a beautiful puppy into my memory banks and that was Ellie and I am so glad I did she was beautiful and an amazing kindred spirit.

Now Billy is filling my days with new wonder and laughter he is still a puppy at heart only being around a year old and as he gets his confidence back he is a great soul and a very funny young boy.

The memories card also reminds me of one of my major goals for this year.

To improve my memory.

I have written this goal in my 2013 Incredible Life Journal by Leonie Dawson
And also have it up in my New Years Goals Package
(it’s never to late to start either of those just click on the words to find out more)

I have bit the bullet and paid for membership with the Luminosity website for brain training and although you are playing games it really does highlight how bad I have become at basic things like quick maths and finding words quickly even working on remembering names and orders in a mock café they are fun but really do work the brain .

I want to be able to remember the extra details that photos can’t provide so when I look at that photo of Misty I will remember always that the day before she had run away down the street and I had to chase her into someone’s backyard to get her back ..lol… lovely soul Misty but a husky she knew how to run and not how to get back home.

So when I post a oracle card each day for everyone on my Rainbow Farm Photography Facebook page and when I do indepths readings for you I urge you to read the reading and meaning I give you but also really look at the image and meaning and see what comes up in your own mind to see what each card means for you .. what your memory brings to you that you need to concentrate on and work through you would be surprised how your insight will guide you through to what you need to be working on.

What does this card mean to you ??? Would love to find out how it relates to you and your day

Giving your heart always even after a loss

I can’t believe it has only been just over a week since the loss of Miss Ellie

PP 070912 ellie1

Click on Miss Ellie to see the blog post tribute to her

I felt her loss deeply and I was seeing her everywhere it was painful and although I felt guilt in it I decided to get another dog but I really wasn’t up for the puppy stage.

I thought it would be a great way to honour Ellie as well as a good way to not find another dog just like her was to get a rescue dog one that was not wanted and may end up being put to sleep.

I began the search and my heart broke even more with the abundance of dogs and cats just in my area that were abandoned and needed homes.

Those beautiful eyes all screamed out take me home and love me.

I picked out a few that sensibly would be more of a fit to my family and to what I liked in a dog and let fate play it’s hand I called for one dog and didn’t get an answer so moved onto the next one a beautiful sad soul named BILL.

PP Bill 001

He was in the Donnybrook Dog Rescue with a lot of other dogs but he spoke to me and on the Monday public holiday I bundled the kids up and we went for a drive.

Bill was beautiful but his story was not he had been badly abused he came in on boxing day riddled with fleas, his collar had been a string of barbed wire and apparently his previous owners had used him as a play toy to throw darts at. I felt for Bill but I did wonder if he would be a good fit for our family with two energized loud children to contend with he may be too timid to cope.
I then was sensible and had a look at a couple of the other dogs but none of them had the soul of Bill he was the one the choice had already been made I just didn’t know it.

It has taken him a while to settle in but he is slowly coming out of his shell and fitting in well with the family he is such a joy to own he hardly barks he always wants to be with you so he can walk with me off lead and not go to far.

Bill who we have now named Billy will never replace Ellie she will always be in my heart along with the other beautiful dogs that have been in my life but I am glad that through her loss I was able to give Billy some hope of a better life.

It was appropriate today as I wanted to write this post that I pulled out the Loss card for the Sunlit Oracle Card of the day.

015

It is hard to lose a loved one and we must grieve and continue to grieve but also not shut ourselves off to new loves because there may be someone out there that needs your love right now.
