Love is .....saying Yes to Life

It only takes one negative thought or comment
to burst your bubble and ruin the day.
As Peter Pan said,
'Think happy thoughts and you will fly!'
Medium Gillian Holland on positive thinking and Spirit!
Are you hiding your light under a bushel?
Do you feel you have lost the edge and need some inspiration?
Are you feeling very sensitive at the moment, especially as the week wears on?
Then Archangel Haniel might be the angel for you!
How the Solar eclipse this weekend could be having a serious impact on your energy levels!
Archangel Haniel is the Archangel associated with the energy of the moon, Since this weekend sees yet another solar eclipse she might be just the person to come to your aid. She carries a soft nurturing almost mothering kind of energy that is just the job when big changes are afoot. Change is a big deal, on the one hand it can be exciting, but on the other it can make us feel really uneasy, so she can keep us steady when we most need it.
Life is all about change and transformation, but being creatures of habit we find security in the familiar. On the world stage, however, everything appears to be breaking down. And nothing seems to be the same as it was. Not only that but most of us are also experiencing our own challenges too!
Solar eclipses are always associated with the new moon. Since new moons mean new beginnings, its as if we have no other choice other than to change. This is pressing all our buttons because we have no idea where this is all headed. We are fast leaving 'life as we know it' far behind and all this making us feel really sensitive and vulnerable. This is your opportunity with Haniel's assistance to initiative positive change in your life.
In spite of all of this, Haniel is on our side. Moving forward means we need to let go of the bits in our lives that no longer work for us, and be ready to move into the light of a new day. We embrace the part of us that's waiting to be born. That's right we really are beings of light, but most of us are too busy hiding our light under a bushel to appreciate just how bright our lights do shine.
Beyond the labels
We are all being asked to look beyond the labels we are still wearing that aren't always complimentary. These labels very often begin with self-criticism and judgement, for instance:- 'good children just don't behave in that way' or 'you are way too old to be tap dancing' or 'even who on earth do you think you are?' 'what makes you think you're so special'
There are a whole multitude of sentences and labels beginning with can't that are completely suffocating our Spirit. Our Spirit is the part of us that is closely associated with the inner child, and if you think of your own children and grandchildren they all want to get out there and explore.
Somewhere along the way, we have lost our natural desire to explore life, but also to challenge ourselves. Haniel is the Archangel that will help you let go of some of those labels and yet help you move step by step into a much brighter future.
Embracing a brand new paradigm
We are on the verge of embracing a brand new paradigm and so can't see where on earth we are going. This is scary with a capital 'S', so we have to trust the process and trust that the Angels really are on our side.
I strongly believe the angels are here to remind us just who we are. The bottom line is we are all beings of light. We are creative spirits and together we can create a world which is far more equal and supportive than the model we are leaving behind. But it does mean we have to let down and trust our Angelic friends.
Now's the time to send up a prayer to Haniel, asking for the support you need. You might also like look at the labels which are holding you back, and ask for their help in releasing them. Yes it does take a great deal of courage but the Angels truly are on your side. They are guiding you back to a deeper understanding of your Self and who you really are behind those labels. Yes you are immortal beings engaged on a very important mission here on earth, and that is to transform our beautiful globe into a place of harmony peace and beauty.
If you would like to explore this idea further with me as part of your own spiritual and personal development then please inbox me at
I am open to an ever deepening understanding of my creative spirit.
Transformation and change are part of my true nature
Thank you for inspiring deep and long lasting transformation in my life.
Gillian's hilarious account
on the fall out following a trip to the dentist.
A visit to the dentist
Oh dear! This morning saw a visit to the dentist, and the possibility ( as well as the expense) of a new crown. I promise you I am not a happy bunny, having booked in for a treatment plan running well into October.
My thoughts turn to a little TLC to make up for the drain on my resources, not to mention the discomfort and the hamster cheeks yet to come reminding me of Marlon Brando in The Godfather!. However, my spirit revives just a tad when I remember the beautiful little coffee shop and bakery in the small shopping precinct close by. When it comes to TLC of course food, typically chocolate and cake, lots of cake, top the list of must haves.
The first thing I notice is a brand new sign over the doorway; rich and bold lettering standing out from a dark yet elegant background proclaiming 'this is a centre of bread-making and cake-making excellent, folks! Come on in!'
My first step over the threshold tells me that the whole place has had a make-over. Thick creamy walls, stripped right back to the brickwork and pure white circular tables surrounded by comfy bucket chairs bid me enter. Opposite, a series of colourful posters on a gleaming tiled background now invite me to take the next step, 'Come eat!' A gateau screams for attention; smeared with oodles of butter-cream icing and hundreds and thousands spilling over the the top got me drooling, yes drooling! One slice has already been cut out of said gateau revealing bright bands of glorious colour; shades of green, yellow and all shades of the rainbow, inviting me yet again, 'Come eat' On a separate poster, pots of fresh summer fruits hustle for my attention; strawberries, summer berries, kiwifruit and melon piled tantalisingly into pristine plastic pots, filling each container to capacity. Yummy cheese straws straight from a pipping hot oven complete the bill, along side kids biscuits colourfully daubed with a series of cartoon characters to delight youngsters of all ages. ('Which piece shall I bite off first?')
The counter itself brims full with an assortment of hot and cold goodies from the good old British staples of pie, sausage and sausage rolls to sandwich fillings for the more health conscious. And finally, thank goodness and further away from me, almost (yes almost) out of harms way came the cakes. Those cakes, wow those cakes laid out in individual glory.
Having ordered my salad sandwich (yes that's right, I emphasise SALAD sandwich) I sat back watching as crowd after crowd of people snake their way into the shop buying up goodies before making their way home.
Saying Yes to Life
It's all in the Spirit not the Stuffing
Life comes in all shapes and sizes. In fact we have no other choice than to accept the rough with the smooth. The dentist is definitely situated right at the rough end of the nasty spectrum, so I needed some of the smooth to balance things out did I not? And wasn't this bakers shop just heaven sent in my time of great need?
As human beings, we all try to run away from the rough don't we? In the end, however, we all have to face up to the many curve balls life does indeed chuck at us. On that note, you might be forgiven for thinking I then went back for seconds and even thirds to drown my toothy sorrows, but I didn't. You might think that my decision to behave and not overindulge was at least in part dictated by the fact that this evening I am going to my slimming club weigh in and you'd be right of course. However....there is another and oft over looked piece to the equation:- Spirit. And its the Spirit rather than the stuffing that helps us take the rough with the smooth and to get back on track
Feeding the Soul is just as important as feeding your face
Feeing the Soul is just as important as feeing your face. I've discovered there are two ways in which I can indulge my passion for food; to savour each morsel and to make every bite count or to pig out and binge myself into a bloated oblivion. The later just compounds the problem; weight goes on, teeth drop out!!! The former helps you find your way through, connecting you all the way back to the very essence of your being, your Spirit! The latter well who really wants to go there? It is the Spirit rather than the stuffing that's going to make all the difference.
Eaten sensibly, food gives you the physical strength and determination to keep on keeping on. And the corresponding riot of textures, colours shapes and sizes we see on our plates, - the things that get our taste buds soaring, open the doorway to imagination, inspiration and a lust for life and living. We rediscover our Spirit in the savouring of each and every moment. Being in the moment helps us move beyond the 'oh lord I am just going have to grin and bare those grim, grim dentures- negative mind set - isn't my cup always more than half empty' kind of mentality back to the fact that my glass is more than half full and is going to get better and better. In short it's the Spirit that helps me see there are infinite other possibilities available and not just the one where I slurp through the rest of my life wearing ill fitting dentures whilst dining on sloppy bread and milk.
Yes to Life
We are all meant to 'Say Yes to Life' as I said earlier, and to take the rough with the smooth. The trick is not to be so down trodden by life that we close the door to some of her miracles. Our taste buds are not the only form of sensing we have. We have sight, sound, touch, taste and smell.. our access to Spirit. Put them all together and you have a very special cocktail, a fiesta of colour, textures and tastes that gets your imagination flowing and puts you back in touch with your Spirit. Food isn't meant to deaden us, its meant to inspire us and encourage us to help us see the bigger picture.
I still have my date with the dentist to face, but the dentures no longer loom large and neither do the pounds weight wise. I've got it, my glass is half full rather than half empty. There are other options, and my time out in the bakers shop helped me to remember this, not my numbing out with all the glorious food on offer, but by savouring all the sites and sounds, from the cream coated walls, to the posters, the fine array of food on sitting cosily behind the counter and the friendly staff smiles. This lovely shop is so full of character and well....the essence of life.....and it is that essence of life or Spirit that is truly our inspiration even when life does throw a curve ball.
