With the beginning of a new year there always seems to be this unseen subtle peer pressure to anounce some sort of new years resolution or change. I dont know why or understand the reasoning behind this.
New years resolutions always undoubtedly fill pages of magazines and newspapers with ideas and suggestions on how to change or improve your current habits or lifestyle. What for? lol… Are we all too fat, ugly, lacking in cleavage and washboard tummys hahaha…are we all lazy, unfit and just have no life and friends? Maybe we are just far too gullible and buy into all this mumbo jumbo called propaganda! Yes! Thats what it is, well thats what I was taught at school (Business Economics to be exact). Propoganda is a tool or strategy in advertising to lure potential customers to buy more and to spread the rumour around. Basically its to make more money!
So no, you are not too fat and lazy with no life or friends, just in debt after spending your allocated budget for your savings fund on your Gym contract! Cos the only thing that gets thinner is your wallet or purse.
Now why would I talk about changes then if I am totally against resolutions and propaganda you ask? Well maybe because of all this talk about new age and the end of the world. I have had my share of transformation and enlightenment and maybe I could say I am still evolving. My road does look very long and difficult but I have only begun and well, I have not much else to do with my time except contemplate my navel. No one really cares what you do these days unless you opinion conflicts with theres and they feel the necessity to convert you. Because they are right and so were there parents and there parents and blah blah blah…
If everyone concentrated on there own life and issues then we would have so much less problems. I can allocate so much more time to sort my own day out if I did not think or worry about Joe Blobs mom whose sister married that guy from the wrong side of the tracks and is now doing you know what and had to go somewhere to do something! shooo …I am exhausted just saying that, but you get my point.
I think my bit of propogande for this year that I would love to share is “Mind Your Own Business!” “keep your nose in your own problems”, “Look at your self before looking at others!”
Somehow I find this new change fantastic and I feel so much lighter already!
P.S. I dont care what so and so wore to the mall last week!
One of my favourite stories has always been the tower of Babylon. As a child I could never understand this story but I still loved it. Maybe as young as I was some how there was something within this story that struck a cord for me. It seemed so bizaar to me that all these people would try and build a tower into heaven. But of course you could not reach there as everyone knows that heaven is not literally in the clouds! “Duh!! Silly!” I would say but I was only 6 years old and I did not understand what a parable was. But humanity has for centuries tried many ways to get closer to God, and yet there methods and effort has always been in vain and no good. And why? What has man being doing wrong or not doing at all to get closer?
But how many people have really understood this story? Not many I think. If you see what is happening in the world today and how history just keeps on repeating itself it is clear that humanity still does not understand this oh so important message directly from the man himself – God. He rarely does tell us stories, most times he sends someone else but with this one he had to tell this lesson. If you have never read the story then I think its time to educate yourself and read it regardless of what religious or spiritual path you follow. As I believe everyone has a lesson to learn from this story. It relates to everyone and involves everyone as well. And is the reason why we are all so different in culture and religious beliefs.
The power in this simple message is simple! Work together with one goal in life with a pure heart. Do not discriminate, reject, control or be greedy. Do not try be better than the person next to you and don’t try and take control or power over everything. God was so angry when he saw how much bickering and fighting was happening. Everyone wanted to be the first at the top. Everyone wanted to lay claim to the tower. Some had even claimed fortunes due to the work and design involved in the tower. What started as a unified decision amongst everyone had now become about power, money and greed. This angered God so he decided to change all there languages. And with this change no one could finish the project.
We can learn a very important lesson here. It is not how much money or power you have. Where you live is of no importance either. God wants his children to all live together happily. He has no favourites or special ones, as we are all special to him. And until we can all see this and learn to live our lives the way God intended then we are nowhere near to heaven. Try to see your neighbour as the same as you. And when we all start to believe and trust in one another and live in the light of God, the God of all good things, love, peace, harmony and compassion, only then are we all speaking the same language. And the day we all realise that the language of happiness, peace and love is not learnt and achieved through war and power but through true understanding and compassion for each other. This is the day we find our answer and key to the doorway to heaven.
Sometimes being able to tell the future is not always that good. I know a lot of people who would love to know what will happen tomorrow or the future. Is it something worth having or is it not so good to have. As a psychic medium I encounter situations like this everyday. Many people do not believe in a psychic gifts but for those who do believe would understand the decisions that have to be made on a daily basis.
What many do not understand is that not all psychics can see into the future. They can offer guidance for the future, but it only works if you listen. Not all visions and dreams are as clear as daylight. I am not perfect and no one else is. You see, for the last few weeks I have had a pounding headache and a vision that won’t stop. This I consider a warning to someone near and close to me. Was I able to find this particular person? Well, umm no! Every time I was near this particular person I was in a crowded room and not in the position to validate my vision. The sick feeling in my stomach when I find out who it was happened too late. So today I write this blog not only for the person that was getting the warning but also for all those psychics who have, and will be in this position. We are not perfect and it is a really bad pill to swallow.
But this also brings to my mind another part to this story. Is it good to see the future? And if we can warn someone of a future event is it to help or would it hinder their fate and destiny. I am a true believer in fate and what is meant to be. But sometimes my emotions get tangle up in there like a big knot. Do I intervene or do I just accept things for what they are, Life. Our lives are planned out to the very last moment and it is our choice that we make when we enter this world. Why some of us choose a rough path, I have no idea. But what I do know is I am here to learn from my life experiences and to gain knowledge from it. And today I have learnt that I cannot always change what will happen. I can maybe warn someone or guide them but their life is their pathway chosen. I cannot intervene or change it. I might see what is to come but if it is meant to be then forces far greater than us will make sure that what is meant to be will be. So do not ever doubt or question the man above about your life. He has the master plan and knows exactly why he has put certain obstacles in your pathway. Take it as a learning curve and build on it. Your higher self and soul will grow to great lengths. So never question your obstacles instead learn from them and grow spiritually and intellectually more each day. And remember your predicament and bad situation is just the starting point of a great lesson in life. So enjoy the ride.
My morning started with a rather deep conversation with my two children in the car on the way to school. How it started I am not sure. But with children a conversation is not always what you expect it to be and it normally ends not how you think it should. My son was complaining about going to school and how he really doesn’t think he needs to go. As a mom I told him that he needs to go and learn something so he can be somebody important one day. And maybe he can change the world with something profound. A long silence then joined us all in the car. After about 5 minutes my daughter asked, “How can I change the world TODAY Mommy?”, ummm… well today was rather short notice for me. The first thing I thought was “Smile, just smile at someone and make them smile back.” She continued to complain about my answer, how could she possibly change the world with just a smile! “MOMMY!”…
How did I explain it? Well, this is rather a good question, some of you will know you can change the world with a smile and some might think I am rather silly saying this. So I will explain it the same way I explained it to my daughter. Just today imagine a young girl leaving for school. She is very lonely and has no friends. She feels invisible and has decided that today is The Day she will end her life after school. She is walking to class when someone gives her a beautiful BIG smile. This smile is so happy and warm that she suddenly feels noticed and liked by somebody. She is happy for the rest of the day and forgets her plans. This young girl will grow up have children, grandchildren and who knows what those children will do and who knows what the young girl will be. This might seem a rather strange way of explaining this but you get my point. When you leave for work in the morning in your mad rush always remember that actions speak louder than words. And the action that you want to speak the most would be a smile. A smile goes a long way and it not only makes a persons’ day but it also makes you feel better about yourself and the world. Another thing is to remember that no one is too small or insignificant to make a change or difference in the world. A simple “Please and thank you”, goes a long way. Or how about opening the door for your partner in the morning when getting in the car. Say hello to your neighbour you always see but never talk to. Let someone change lanes in front of you in traffic. Little things like this can change the world for the better. It might not make a difference for you but for the other person it will.
So after this long profound and deep discussion with my daughter about how she will change the world today with a smile, my son asks me, “So ummm… Mommy, if someone smiles at me today will I be an astronaut?” and I smiled!
There was a knock at the door and I reluctantly went and answered it. It was a dinner party my husband had planned with some work colleague. The work colleague and his wife entered our home with warm smiles. They commented on our beautiful home. The wife was drawn towards my show cabinet. Inside I had vases. Old and treasured ones. Some were chipped and one had a crack. Even though they were damaged I treasured each vase for a special reason. They had memories that were very dear to me and close to my heart. Some how I could never let them go even in their broken form. They were sentimental to me. My husband took one out of the cabinet and handed it to the lady. She smiled and remarked how beautiful they were. My husband smiled back and then said she could have them all. “Take them, we don’t need them anymore, they are old.” I was distraught! How could he do that? They are mine, my memories and not his to give away. I argued about how insensitive he was. Eventually I retaliated and demanded new ones. He quite happily said “Yes, ok!”. Somehow this did not seem at all right to me, what was happening? I then woke up. I was looking into the darkness. I was dreaming. Why would I dream something like this?
We all dream, but not all of us remember them. Dreams can mean all sorts of things. Your mind could be sorting out your previous day. You could have watched a bad movie that left an impression. But sometimes dreams are more than they seem. Often and many times our spirit guides or the angels send us messages. They come in many ways but for most times they use our dreams to send them. I think because they make the most impression on us. Our dreams can feel like endless movies some nights or just snippets of a photo album. They can be in colour or black and white. My dream was a message for me today from my angels. I often talk to angels. I ask for advice and sometimes just ask for their presence. They comfort me and protect me. But what did my dream mean? Some people would take it literally and think that maybe my old ornaments and vases need to be replaced. But I don’t really think that is my message.
To understand the message I look at the context of the dream. The vases. A vase is a vessel to hold something. My vases were sentimental and held memories that were special. I kept them even though they were old and did not want to let them go. My husband was willing to let them go and was trying to help me. When we often hold onto to old memories and habits it is difficult for us to move on with our lives. It holds us back in so many ways. My dream was showing me that my husband was helping me to let go of stuff that served no purpose to me anymore. He wants me to aquire new memories, a new vase without any cracks and chips in them. Good memories without cracks and chips.
So today if you wonder what your dream meant, just ask the angels. They are always there to guide you and just waiting for you to ask for help. And once you have asked for help have a look if you have any vases with cracks and chips. Maybe it is time for you to let go of the things that serve no purpose to you anymore, and time to move on and aquire new things that bring happiness and good memories.
Below is link to my other blog. Besides my writing at Silver Moon I also do oracle card readings and channeling. Although I am still new to my channeling. Which is not an easy gift/skill to get used to and not something you can just switch off either. I also have dreams and visions from my guides. It is on Humanity Healing that I have found a place to spread my messages and visions I have had. Every message and vision I have is always shared with the best intentions and with a pure heart and mind. Some messages I do not share as they might not be clearly understood but some times I try my best to share them. My translation might not always be exact but the underlying message is. Please have a look at the blog posts and you are more than welcome to share the messages to others. My guides lessons are for man kind and are to be shared with the best intentions of love and peace.

So today I was toying between two titles – Gorillas in the mist or Vanity Insanity.
Well you can see my choice which is more apt for my sense of humour. If you are squeamish or a bit of a prude then rather not read this today. I would like to talk about vanity but not the way it is shown in glossy magazine, oh no…. I want to talk about it the way it really is!
For some woman their morning starts maybe 2 or 3 hours earlier than most just so they can put all their bits and bobs on and hide all their rolls and bumps, and then show only the bits they need. ( For some this requires an engineer to keep some bits in place and some up! ) lol…. But besides all this hard work everyday what about the long term beauty extremes woman do just to look socially acceptable. I will give you a list but you are free to correct me if I have missed a few. I am rather well groomed but not what you would call high maintenance. I know the basics.
- Buffing of nails
- Painting nails
- Perming and Straitening
- False eyelashes
- Breast implants
- Bum implants! Hahaa… I think I could be a donour! Lol…
- Deep cleansing at a salon (Facial)
- Body massages
- Tummy tucks
- Nose job or face lift
Well I am sure there is a lot of other stuff you could do but you get my drift. Woman put themselves through all this daily for what? I really don’t know why. Yes I can understand it can make you feel better but what if you knew nothing else more than your own body? Would you still want to change yourself? Would you feel comfortable in your body? I really do believe that we only do these things due to the fact that we are bombarded with information and pictures daily of what is socially acceptable by the media and advertising companys. Who told them what was acceptable? Do they have a guide book from God saying what woman and men should look like? I don’t think so. Only the maker can tell us that answer. And going by what I see, he seems quite happy with his work. But I am still not sure if he accepts the alterations we have done.
But then I wonder today do I do what is socially acceptable to? And this has a lot to do with the title…. You see, this is my burning question for me today! Do I wax or not? Hmmmm…. Its sounds painful and what I have seen and heard doesn’t sound so good. I am one of those lucky individuals that are not compatible with most chemicals or medicines ect. I cannot use any hair removal creams and shaving is torture for me as it provides me with days of endless hives. Most woman would never even think of telling someone that their wax job has given them ingrown hairs and while standing in an aisle at the shopping centre all they can think about is a good scratch! But beauty bears no pain, oh really? So the 6 inch heels you are wearing are just perfect right? You find them comfortable since you had your bunions removed! And since you had your breast job you are quite happy that when you are 90 years old your breasts will still be perky, (it will distract the attention away from your sagging everything else! I really dont think woman think the whole process through well enough when they purchase fashion accesories or have plastic surgery done. The final result is wonderful, but eventually the ageing process will carry on and those wrinkles will come back. So we lather on copius amounts of moisturiser everyday to prevent it. The tanning business is fantastic. I love this! With new research now about UVA rays and sunscreen less people are tanning in the sun. Because they dont think any damage can be done on a sun bed! Its just a very bright light right? Are you kidding yourself. And what about the lovely orange spray on tans? I rather not comment on the colour, it speaks for itself. A few years ago I had a job doing wedding photo albums. I just love the irony of brides spending a fortune on make up artists and then would come to me with their photos and ask for everything to be airbrushed off. Why? 20 years into your marraige when your husband looks at your photos and says, “You are not the woman I married”, well technically he is correct because its not you in the pictures. Its some other fantasy version of yourself. Who are you fooling?
In a perfect world I would go au natural but no I cannot! So I torture myself weekly in order to be socially acceptable and smooth for my hubby! If only he knew how I felt about this, lol…well after reading this I guess he will! But how many other woman go through this whole thing as well? If men don’t feel like shaving they just stop and model a rugged look. Wonder what hubby would say if I was going for the rugged look? Hahaha… like Gorillas in the Mist? Lol…Why is it not as sexy for us? Come on men ! How many woman would rather leave their 5 o’clock shadows and be comfy instead of ingrown hairs and rashes. There are a lot of you out there. You see them at the beach with baggies over their costumes! Their secret is hidden. But that is another rather peculiar thing woman do. They go to a complete stranger and let them wax their nether regions! What do these ladies say when they are children. “Mommy when I grow up I want to wax ladies daisys.!” Lol….who invented this? I think they should be held accountable for this!
And after this I still think to myself. Being smooth, smelling nice and good does make you feel beautiful doesn’t it? But if I only knew my natural self would I be happier au natural or would I still yearn for perfection? What is perfection?
So I wait in anticipation for my first wax job…or my last wax job!
