Classroom Gratitude

I have just completed the 28 days of gratitude challenge. It has changed my life, the way I think, the way I look, the way I interact with others but most of all the way I feel. It is from the book The Magic by Rhonda Byrnes and I highly recommend that everyone does this. You will literally see the world through different eyes and so will others. When you are grateful for things you realise how much abundance you have in your life and how great you can feel. As I shared my experience with others and told others why I was grateful for them I started to notice the genuine smiles that came to their faces and ultimately the gratitude that came back to me and how this made me feel.

I want to share this news with the whole world, I want to teach everyone that they can experience pure joy by simply changing their thoughts. I was feeling a little frustrated as I did not know how to go about this. But as I am very aware of the law of attraction I knew frustration was not a feeling that would positively serve me. So I just started to talk to my friends about the positive benefits of feeling and showing gratitude.

I actually started looking at my job differently. I realised that as a primary school teacher I had a captive audience. I had the opportunity to teach this year 3 class about gratitude, although I knew time restraints were going to be an issue. So I decided to make one simple change to my day. In the morning instead of taking the roll and marking names off without even interacting with the kids I realised that this is the perfect opportunity to connect with every child in my class to start the day. So now when I take the roll I choose to say the child’s name and when they look at me (It’s important to make eye contact if possible) I repeat their name and say something nice to them. I am in week 5 of doing this now and it feels very different in my class.

I use the same saying for a week and it’s is so lovely now when I open the door in the morning the children can’t wait to say something nice to me. Some things I have said include “I am so grateful you are here today”, ” Thank you for coming today”, “I am so glad you are in my class” “You make my day a little brighter”. The kids faces light up with joy which makes me feel great.

I started out doing this to simply teach these little people in my care about gratitude and hopefully some of them will remember this at some point in their life but I was not prepared for how it has changed the behaviour in my class for the better nor was I prepared for how much I would enjoy the feeling when they show me gratitude.

I am so grateful to have found the 28 day gratitude challenge it has changed how I live and hopefully as I am teaching others about it, friends, family and students, it will change how they live. Focusing on positive things helps us to live the life we were put on this earth for. A happy and joyous one!

Forgiveness is all about me

I did not realise that I was actually hanging on to so much negative emotion that was actually controlling my life. I forgive people so that they can move on but I didn’t realise I often hold on to the negative emotion that is stopping me from existing at the vibration that I love.

While visiting my spiritual healer she asked me if “I forgive easily? “and of course I said “yes” because I thought I did. As I said, I forgive the other person involved so that they can move on with our relationship and ultimately their lives and yet she made me realise I still hold on to the anger, hurt, frustration, disappointment and sadness in my body.

I was blind sided again because I wasn’t who I thought I was. I was holding on to grudges that I didn’t even acknowledge. I realised I felt a lot of anger towards my dad for dying when I was three. It wasn’t his fault, he didn’t deliberately die but somewhere in my body I just felt resentment and anger towards him for bailing on us at such a young age. It seems irrational but it was holding me back from being my higher self. At my healing, I discussed this and for the first time ever I actually said out loud “I forgive you dad” which gave me a feeling of sheer relief and release.

I have been to many medium, psychics and spiritual healers over the years and my dad never came though. This made me think that he truly didn’t care about me, however the moment I said “I forgive you dad” I could feel him holding my hand , squeezing it like my nan used to. Then to my delight Nicole, my healer said “your dad is sitting next to you. He has been there your whole life but you were not at a vibration that could connect with him” Nicole described him to a tee. She was also laughing at him because she said “he is so cheeky!”

I feel like I now have a strong relationship with my dad, he has my back and walks through life with me. Even when others try to knock me down, I’m just like “Are you kidding ? Can’t you see this big, strong amazing guy standing behind me (and his beer gut!). I am now braver than I have ever been. Not only do I know the Universe has my back , I know my dad does too.

For the last month I have been focussing my meditations on forgiveness, sometimes the most random things come up, like the girl that threw my netball onto the road in year 3. But I acknowledge and the I realise. My vibration is no longer bogged down in negative emotions but soaring in the clouds.

I also met one of my spiritual guides at that healing. His energy was phenomenal but I will leave that for a whole other post.

Healing MySelf from Multiple Sclerosis has changed my life for the better. I’m grateful, I’m so glad you came but now MS you may go.

Thanks for reading


Time to Stop! …and smell the roses.


Often in life we are so busy doing, that we forget how to be. During this Journey many times  I stop and think about how my life has bloomed into what it is today. I love reading about the Universe, spirits and how amazing life is meant to be and yet it took Illness to get me to this point as I kept ignoring the signs I was getting. Obviously I have always been a believer but doubt used to sneak into my thoughts. I am currently reading The Universe has your Back by Gabrielle Bernstein. An amazing book which constantly affirms to me all the beliefs I have had for all these years but I just didn’t 100% fully commit to them.  I am actually feeling like I exist at a different vibration these days and I walk around knowing I have my Spirit Guides with me and they also have my back 100%. No longer living in fear but in love and the more I allow myself to experience life and be in the moment, the higher my vibration becomes and the happier life is. Taking time to smell the roses is something I have literally always done but now I show gratitude for all the beautiful things in my life, all the things that were sent to me with love from the Universe and I no longer get caught up in fear of the not so beautiful things in life.

My Puppy Eddie is the perfect example of this. I was never a dog person and neither was my husband, I was always scared of them and actually to be honest I was scared of change! Until one day after being asked by my children many times if we could get a puppy I surrendered and trusted and let go of my fear.  I had so many thoughts going through my head and so many reasons why I thought it wouldn’t work out but thank God I had faith that it would all be for the best. That is how Eddie came into our lives and now I could not imagine our family without him! I am so grateful he was sent to us and he is a constant reminder that the Universe wants us to be happy.

Even Eddie takes the time to smell the roses!!!!!





Cloud Angels

Looking back at my photos from earlier this year it hit me smack in the face. The Universe gave me an amazing sign. I noticed it, I took a photo of it then after I thanked the Universe I totally forgot about it.

One day I was sitting at the rockpool with family and friends. As I looked up I saw the most beautiful cloud. I often see cloud angels and photograph them but this was different. It was a definite sign that I now know was meant for me. It was a beautiful love heart in the clouds.

A message from the universe that self-love holds the answer to my well being and healing. I am so grateful I am on this journey now where I give myself permission to not only acknowledge these amazing signs from the Universe but accept that they are actually for me! 🏖❤️ I will beat this disease!

What’s The Purpose?

I was guttered in the beginning

I couldn’t believe it was so.

What the hell is going on

I didn’t even know.


What was this disease they speak of

and how will it hurt me?

I wasn’t ready for the answers

I didn’t even want to see


I said “This sucks!”

I’ve looked after myself always

Was it all for nothing???


There was a time I said “I’m tough!”

This disease will not win

But through my ignorance I let it

And thank God I looked within.


I am know full of knowledge

and learning more every day.

“I will beat this disease!”

is what I can hear myself say.


I am giving myself love,

I meditate whenever I can.

I believe I am part of the answer

the Universe has a plan.


I am such a different person

to the one I was before.

I have realised my life’s purpose,

I am beginning to see what’s in store.


It’s kindness, love and gratitude

especially to myself.

I have more excitement for life

I am getting down off the shelf.


MS is not going to beat me,

In fact I am grateful that it came.

It’s taught me so much about life

Happiness and self-love is what I have gained.


Thank You for the lessons

and the new life that I know

I have been really good listener

So MS, now you may go!

Giving our Kids the Gift

“I am going to live on the beach in a beautiful white house, with a beautiful verandah and I will walk along the beach everyday, watching the waves roll in, smelling the salt air and be happy!” This is a statement that my daughter has said to me for a number of years now. When I would question her about this, she was always adamant that this is just how it’s going to be. I used to say “Ok Babe, Good luck with that. You do realise you actually have to have a lot of money to do that?” However, she has never wavered and would always be absolutely sure that her life would end up this way. She can tell me in great detail what the house will look like and feel like.

After a recent life changing experience myself, I realised she actually knows the secret to life. Her soul has obviously been here before and she knows how to be happy. It seems simple but you just have to genuinely believe, for something to happen. To visualise the future, how it feels, how it looks, tastes, sounds will put us in the right vibration and the universe can not help but give it to us. We always say to kids, “You can be whatever you want to be!” However I am not convinced I actually believed what I was saying until now. We all have the power to live amazing file (003) lives, we all have choices that we make everyday and if we make a positive choice or have a positive thought, slowly buy surely the universe will provide. Why do we not share this with our children? Manifesting is believing that our dreams will come true. I am grateful that I have learned this now and that my daughter has helped to affirm my new understanding of the world. I trust that everything, and I mean everything, happens for a reason and I have learned this lesson now because now is the time that I am ready and I was meant to learn it.

Imagine if we taught our children from a young age that they have the power to control their own destiny no matter what the situation is. If we think negative thoughts, if when our children are disappointed or life doesn’t go their way we provide them with the negative language to give them permission to be negative then that will always be there go to. So let’s all try seeing the positive in every situation. Trust me I know that it is difficult but if we can teach our kids this from a young age we will be giving them the tools to continue life into adulthood being healthier than ever before. Mentally Healthier!

She is only 12 but I am really looking forward to the day I sit with her and have a coffee on the verandah at her house on the beach!!!

The Universe can’t help but give, even to children

The universe truly is amazing and the more faith I have in it the more it gives me. I was actually sitting and contemplating why we don’t teach children the secret of life, how to find their soul’s purpose and spend their life nourishing their soul. I had the thought that people would say that is way over their head, they couldn’t comprehend that. Yet we teach children about Religion from a very early age and expect them to believe, even though most of that is hard to show evidence and prove.

So as I was contemplating this thought my son walks over to me head down and obviously not happy with life. He had been waiting all day for his mate to return to the caravan park we are holidaying in. I said you know what? Take 5 minutes, lay on the lounge and imagine / picture/ believe Joey, his mate, coming back to the park. What it will look like, feel like, sound like, smell like. So he laid down on the lounge and did this. I actually forgot he was doing it but within 4 minutes he jumps up off the lounge saying “Joey’s back!!”. I hadn’t even heard them return but the point is he was so excited and said “Thanks mum , it actually worked !” “The universe is so cool!”

So not only did the universe answer Will, at the same time it answered me. The answer is Yes! Yes! Yes! Children can be taught about the laws of attraction and have The Secret to an amazing life.

Self Love

I thought I always had self love! I was proud of myself for the way I dealt with things that had occurred in my life and I allowed other people to see me! I never pretended to be someone I wasn’t and I have always been brutally honest. I can’t lie well because the truth is written all over my face. But one day when I walked in to see my spiritual healer she said. “I have been waiting for this day since the first time I met you!” I was thinking wow that’s really exciting is she going to tell me I am going to win the lotto? Am I going to have a dream holiday? No! she told me that as long as she had known me and could see the real me, which was a couple of years, my heart was blue. I had no love in my heart, I did not love myself.

I was blown away. I wanted to tell her that is not true! I have always been happy and proud of who I am of course I love myself! However, I trust her implicitly and continued to listen. As we worked through the session I realised I was scared of feeling love from others and for myself. Why? Because at a young age my dad died tragically and obviously broke my heart. I was scared to have it broken again so although I thought I loved myself, I had a shield of protection that I had subconsciously put around my heart in fact around my whole body! I didn’t even realise! It was stopping me from feeling what life could truly be.

After that session which was 8 weeks ago I have meditated everyday and basically focussed on self love meditation. I didn’t even realise life could feel this way. I didn’t actually love myself I was just happy when people around me felt my love and when people around me were happy. Now I see life in a whole different way. I have this amazing feeling that I get from my heart like a vibration from the universe and an endless supply of love pumping through my veins. I honestly have never felt this way in my life and now that I am putting it out there into the universe I can see that not only is it making me happy it is making people around me happier as well.

I didn’t realise that fear was ruling my life, my every decision. I would think “what if this doesn’t work ” , “What if it’s a mistake”. Now I have confidence in the universe that it has my back and if I do the right thing and love myself, my true self, then things will be good actually things will be great.

The law of attraction is coming into play again. I am putting love out into the universe and I am getting it back in abundance. Who knew life could feel this amazing? Looking back this lesson I learnt was far more exciting that winning the lotto or going on my dream holiday because this has changed my life forever!

MS has taught me self love and with that comes the healing. Maybe for me MS stands for My Self and it’s time to focus on that!!
