SHOWING YOUR TRUE COLOURS

Do you believe in EARTH ANGELS ? Earth Angels are often people who cross your path for just a moment in time, but in that short moment they leave an imprint on your heart.

It was NEW YEARS EVE and I was going to celebrate with a friend at her home in one of my favourite places – Cronulla Beach. As I waited at the bus stop I thought about the year to come. Each year I knew the right calender would find me. And it did ! Tranquility was just what I needed in 2017. Such a lovely word tranquility...  it sounds so calming you can almost float on the energy it conveys of peace, quiteness, stillness…  After an emotionally  turblant year I was happy to see the back of 2016… yes tranquility felt good ~ it is my publishing name after all.

The insight I had gained of self was all the memory I wished to remember of 2016. Checking  to see if the bus was coming over the hill  I noticed an elderly lady making her way to the bus stop. Her cane followed the footpath closely, guiding her to her destination. We exchanged greeting as the lady settled beside me. Behind her sunglasses I noticed her left eye remained closed ~ damaged I wondered ? Once settled she asked me where I was heading. We chatted for a while and then she said “You need to show your true colours in  2017…” A little surprised I thanked her for her message. “Do you follow astrology?” I asked her. “No” she replied gently in a matter of fact way ” I just know things, I always have! I worked as a councilor and hynothripst for many years. I love being out and travel to the Blue Mountains regulary to spend time at a centre for young people with disabilities. We chatted until the bus arrived. ” I am not just a blind old lady ! “she told me as we parted. “My name is Jill. Remember to show your true colours .. ! ”

Peacock magic I knew was about showing you true self to the world. For years a peacock had visited my daughters horse paddock. One time when Mr Peacock ( as we named him) came to visit he had almost finished molting.  To my delight his last two beautiful  feathers dropped close to me before he walked away. It’s not always easy to show your true self especailly when you are processing deep pain. What I did manage to do in 2016 was say yes to a few invitations when I was still feeling emotinally depleted. That yes has carried me forward on a positive note into the New Year.

A poppy ~ one of lifes’ small blessings.

A lovely friend of mine saw poppy flowers around me while we were chatting. She was kind enough to share their meaning with me. “Poppies guide your desires into physical manifestation. Your wishes become tangible. The message from poppy is not to give up! Your dreams are closer to reality than you think.

It’s  magical how the universe provides little gifts of guidance along our journey. My dream did seem to be drifting out of reach but my friend’s words have encouraged me to continue to believe in my dream.  

The poppy also have deep significance as a flower of remembrance. My personal connection with the poppy is the unforgettable memory of a line of men placing poppies on the coffin of my late husband to honour his memory. A garden of red poppies, surrounding a  lone slouch hat.
