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.

If at first you don’t succeed .. try, try again

I think I have been putting off this post because I didn’t want to admit I had failed.

I did not make my $1500 in Sales last month.

I failed ….

Or did I ???

Do we ever really fail??

I may not of reached that goal but I am not sorry that I made such a goal.
I tried hard to reach it in a short month with A LOT going on in my personal life. I learnt a lot about myself and I took a step towards believing in the dream that it truly can come true.

It is not a failure to try I am further ahead than I was the month before and even though it didn’t reflect this in $$$$ it has sure shown in my commitment to trying to keep the dream alive and to working towards that dream.

So this month ….

Guess what ??

I am doing it all again I am going to keep trying for this goal until I achieve it I have just moved the deadline to the end of this month and I am confident that I will reach it.

 

march goals

 

With a lot of help from friends and family and my wonderful clients and followers of my journey I will keep to this path and live my passion.

I am learning every day my Tafe Studies have started in how to manage a small business effectively which will help me with the more boring side of business.

I have the amazing Leonie Dawson and all her learning tools keeping me spiritually and business connected and learning constantly.

Most of all I have my passion .. getting out there into the healing and inspiring joy of nature seeing the sun rise every day is a joy and a great comfort to my journey.

Last month saw some beautiful sunrises a snap shot of these are in the monthly snapshot video below

All before 7am on a Sunday

 

Wow what a rush this morning has been and I mean a rush in a energizing get up and go way.

This morning started as any other with my waking to the dawn usually at least ten minutes before my alarm clock goes off.

Since the sun is getting up a bit later these mornings I have still been getting up at the same EARLY time and enjoying the quiet of the house with the rainbow farm children still sound asleep.

I take this time to sit with my mocked up (yes I am getting to publish them soon) set of Sunlit Oracle Cards and I choose a card for the day that relates to us all not just to me but often it really resonates with myself as well.

 

Today’s card is …

 

Believe in You

 

FBQS 230113 believe in you

 

The Description of this card is …

your sunlit memory today is bringing you Believe In YOU embrace all that is you and love yourself the first step to happiness is loving yourself and believing you are beautiful and amazing just the way you are. Go out into that open space and just twirl around like a kid for awhile feel the freedom of you. When you believe in yourself and don’t doubt your intuition you will go further than you ever thought possible.

 

After a busy and doubting myself week this card really was a great reminder to Believe in myself and it made me smile as I headed out to the sunrise.

Miss Ellie was waiting patiently for me to go for our walk.

 

The Beautiful Miss Ellie

The Beautiful Miss Ellie

 

As I was putting on Ellie’s lead I noticed the scarlet robin had come to say good morning didn’t think too much more of it until I got down to the front gate probably 250 metres from the house and there was the Robin again waiting where I stand to take the sunrise shots. He sat there for about five minutes I asked him what he had to tell me today as it is thought that seeing a Robin means change is on the way. I was going to take a photo but he is too smart I only had to reach for the camera and he was off.

 

Bringing the wings of change

 

 

After getting the Believe in You card and seeing the Robin I was thinking yes I need to change the way I had been thinking during the week worrying that what I was doing wasn’t good enough that I wasn’t doing enough there will be more on this in another post which hasn’t been done because I was too busy worrying about the post being good enough and the week going well.

The sunrise was amazing .. beautiful… inspiring .. energizing .. and healing

 

SRS24323 240213 sunrise

 

I came back to upload the sunrise pics and checked my emails and ofcourse get lost in facebook for a bit.

In checking my emails I saw a wonderful list of blog posts from the wonderful goddesses that are part of my goddess circle on Leonie Dawson’s groups page.

So many beautiful and inspiring blog posts and a few of them were connecting with the card that had come out today “Believe in YOU”

The lovely Jacqueline Gates posted about Resistance and I found it very inspiring and true to know that we resist against the New You we want to be and that Belief in ourselves has something to do with that…

Here is her wonderful post read it ..

 

http://www.jacqueline-gates.com/resistance-is-fertile

 

The Gorgeous Sarah from Relentlessly Positive posted about how we are afraid to go out of our comfort zone and are resistant as Jacqueline tells us to changing our lives for the better because we don’t believe in ourselves it is time we did and I know I am always doing this too and a little too much this last week.

Check out her wonderful post here and I am going to be following up with the book she is reading and do the challenge with her.

 

http://relentlesslypositive.wordpress.com/2013/02/23/what-are-you-afraid-of/

 

All this and before 7am on a Sunday morning.

What a great way to start the day with such inspiring and healing energy from the sun and from such wonderful caring people that reach out of their comfort zones and share their gifts.

I have been quiet with posts this week because I was doubting myself and wanting it all to go in a perfect alignment of posts couldn’t do one post before the other but I have realized that I just have to believe in my journey and it is not the end of the world if that post is in the wrong order and I don’t have to do a big apology for getting it out late or out of order … the getting it out there is the main objective and in years to come when people go back to read that post it will be the words written that resonate not the date it was written.

 

So write your story and BELIEVE IN YOU

Each day breathes in more rays of sunshine and love the directions they take us

It is so amazing this gift of each new day we have …

Today started much like any other day I headed out to take my walk with the beautiful Miss Ellie my wonderful dog.

There were clouds about but nothing showing where the sun rose beautifully and gave the whole landscape a golden glow.

 

SRS24290 190213 sunrise

 

When back at the Rainbow Farmhouse it was time to sit quietly for a moment with my practice deck of the sunlit oracle and ask what everyone needed to know today.

I relish asking this question each day and it is inspiring and just a little exciting to see what will come up for the day.

Today was ….

 

“A MOTHER’S LOVE”

 

051 logoon

 

 

Description of the card is ….

your sunlit memory today is bringing you A MOTHER’S LOVE there is nothing more natural than a mother’s love no matter how old or young you are your mother will always be there even if it is in spirit .. with a guiding hand to hold and arms to keep you safe all the mothers of the world along with the big mother nature are looking after you. Feel loved and safe and give that to others pass forward to your own children giving them love and safety .

 

I instantly was drawn to this card and realised that it was going to be a day that this message was shown to me constantly.

Starting with the waking of the rainbow farm children and the love of watching them go through their morning routines.

It’s amazing how much love we give our children going through our day doing routine things that really show that like making lunches for them and organising activities for them.

My Daughter Jennifer turns the big 8 this week and I must admit I was impressed with her school for thinking up such and amazing idea …

They allow any child having a birthday to donate a book to the library and for doing that she will get called out at assembly and have happy birthday sung to her and the book will have a dedication to her thanking her for donating it.

 

birthday book school

 

Now as I asked Miss J what book she would like and she asked for one by the author and in the series she loves …

 

It came to me that this wonderful idea of book donation is a wasted opportunity for myself …

Why isn’t Miss J asking for one of Mummy’s beautiful photography books to be donated to the school??

 

WHY???

 

Because Mummy has not completed her beautiful photography books yet .

so as my mother’s love was building it has changed my direction yet again …

 

I have …

 

ANOTHER GOAL

 

ANOTHER THING TO ADD TO MY 100 THINGS TO DO THIS YEAR

 

My son Robert’s birthday is in December and I now put it out to the universe …

 

I WILL DESIGN AND PUBLISH BY ROBERT’S BIRTHDAY A CHILDREN’S BOOK

 

Robert is in Grade One this year and I watch him reading his books each night …

“A Mouse is Quiet”  “A Spider is Quiet” “A Rabbit is Quiet”

I am sure I can come up with a short story series to rival these exciting repetition books they teach our children to read.

It will be done.

Idea’s are flowing.

Love my Kids and LOVE the way they are making me a better person and I am growing with them.

So what do you think??  I would love to read your thoughts on this and if you have any suggestions on what subject to do.

The Brilliance of Carrying a Notebook EVERYWHERE You Go

What a morning I have had …

I think it started about 3am in the morning my mind just went into overdrive and from then on I was dreaming and thinking of all these new ideas.

Has anyone else had this problem?

I know since I started the new year I have had quite a few sleepless nights.

I have been able to get back to sleep a little easier by making sure I have my notebook with me beside my bed with pen at the ready so if I get woken by some weird dream or idea I can quickly write it all down ..

Empty my head of all that is going round in there and then go back to sleep.

Now I may be slightly biased here but I really LOVE my notebooks that I have made with my beautiful images on them.

 

notebook5

My Current Notebook Reminding me to SHINE

 

They are a great size and with the laminated covers if I happen to spill something on them I can easily wipe it off without any damage.

The covers also make it a light weight notebook to carry in your handbag or laptop bag.

The inspiring image on the front helps cheer me up during the day and inspire me to more exciting ideas and thoughts.

 

A5 notebooks 220111

 

It really is so important to carry a notebook with you we can’t rely on ourselves to remember all those exciting things that pop into our mind or if we meet someone down the street it’s so easy to just grab out the notebook and jot down their details than to fumble around with your phone and try to type with big fingers on little buttons.

The Rainbow Farm Photography Notebooks would also make a great diary or journal to hide all your inner most secret thoughts.

It is still an hour or so away from lunch time and I can’t believe what I have achieved today and I actually thank those 3am wake up calls because they feed my soul with new exciting directions.

I am excited with all the growth that is happening and my poor notebook is nearly full with all the work and ideas brimming out of it.

I am so glad that I found Leonie Dawson at the end of last year and have done her

 

Leonie Dawson 2013 Incredible Year Workbooks with Calendars

 

also did my own

 

The New Year’s Goals Package

 

So that you are seeing your goals every day and being motivated by inspiring visual aides.

Which keeps me on track with what I want to achieve and how far I have come.

I actually can’t wait to finish this notebook to get onto the next amazing inspiring image it shows the growth I have gone through and when I choose the next image it will resonate that wonderful shine I have in me.

So I highly recommend you all carry a notebook with you no matter where you go it doesn’t have to be one of mine but if you would like to BUY NOW one of my beautiful notebooks head over to my Rainbow Farm Photography Facebook Page and go into the shop there are several designs ready to BUY NOW or you can customize your own with an image of your choice.

 

Writing in a notebook or journal can be very healing and inspiring … even if you don’t know what to write just set aside some time each day to just write sit and just see what comes out.

If you have a favourite Notebook or journal would love to see a photo of it … post it on my Facebook Wall or email it to rainbowfarmphotography@bigpond.com and if I get a few I will do another post on the notebooks of others.

So off you all go get writing .. thinking.. dreaming and making inspiring lives.

Are you ready for a New Beginning ??

If I was to tell you that today is the day it all changes….

Your life is destined for great things and today is the day it starts….

Today is your ….

“NEW BEGINNING”

 

048 logo on

 

Description for this card is …

your sunlit memory today is bringing you NEW BEGINNING you have been waiting patiently for this new dawn with the mists of the yesterday clouding your progress it’s time to let the mist rise into the day walk confidently into your new future you may have to walk alone but just out of reach is all that you have been waiting for it has been there all along . Stand tall breath deep step out of the mist and leave the rains behind. you are beautiful and your future is amazing.

 

Would you be ready for a new beginning??

Are you jumping up and down with anticipation of that change ready for it with a clear heart and mind?

 

To have a new beginning you need to be ready for it. If you are still caught up in the mists of yesterday you will miss the change that is here for you today.

To truly start a new life you need to be ready and willing to take the step or you will just keep on wandering in that mist.

It is abit like the addiction of smoking and when a person chooses to QUIT smoking they often fail because they are really only doing it because someone else wants them too or many other reasons such as cost of the habit etc. They don’t truly want to stop smoking it’s a quick rush to have that cigerette it’s a comfort to hold it in their hand.

Much like living the life you are in at the moment it is comfortable and safe to step out into that new beginning take a chance on something new and exciting is scary you could fall and fall further than you are at the moment but just think of how tall and strong you could be if you take that chance.

It is a risk but the risk is minimal if you are open and focused on the success a new beginning can bring.

Enjoy it …

Embrace it …

You are truly ready for that New Beginning allow it to come to you.

If you are unsure of where you are to start with your new beginning a great way to start

is to find out a bit more about YOU

and how you tick make some plans and work out where you want to go the ….
