That’s right, it’s what I’ve learnt about the conscious mind. It’s an induction. Confuse the conscious mind with 7 things to think about and it quite literally gives up, says “what’s all this about I can’t cope” and bang! over to your subconscious – which is the seat of all our dreams and desires, our gut feelings, our imaginations, what we truly feel about things – how we know ourselves.
So just today after several years of being in a state of confusion, my conscious mind being spoon fed tons of ideas (not just 7!) but countless ideas, the internet is such a confusion now of internet marketing and marketers, saying do this do that, you’ve only got 3 seconds to get someone on your side, don’t give them too many choices, be clear with your message.
But WHAT message, What am I doing?
What’s at MY core?
There’s suddenly a screaming going on that says: But who are you really? Continue reading “Only 7 Things – the cat knows”
I was told a startling truth today. Not startling in the sense I was devastated by it but startled in the sense I knew it but had never taken notice of it or looked at it in simple terms.
I do not mind other people’s opinion of me, what I look like, how I dress, what I say.
It was a rule of my life that had protected me all my life from others and what they might have to say about me. Continue reading “Know Yourself”
Do you even think about the future? What is future to you?
No I’m not thinking of the children’s or the grandchildren’s future, let’s be a bit myopic here I’m still on my future!
In the 1980’s we had a red phone that could be plugged into a phone socket it had keys as opposed to a dial and it was a marvellous thing, rented from BT. A few years later we had a rover phone that we bought with an aerial that I could walk around the house with. The perception then of being able to talk to someone in another country and see them in real time was wildly fantastical and futuristic and as some people were saying the end of any privacy.

It’s hard at the moment I won’t deny it. I was awake again at 4.00am with a fast heart of the AF type and full of wind (really must stop eating beans). Still awake at 5.30, very tired knowing that the old ticker will be doing a dance for a few hours. Continue reading “Love Unconditionally”
On this bright and wonderful day I have come to reflect on this day in particular. I am given to characteristic bursts of philosophy from time to time. As my Dreamer profile reflects though I rarely take action, choosing to dream only about my thoughts so most never see the light of day.
A post though on Face Book has reminded me how I feel about the cycle of life said by my friend, now life partner and colleague Jonathan Chase. Went like this: “Have you ever had that awful moment when you realise you’ve grown up into your parents?” Continue reading “Mother’s Day”
Arthur and Layla last year.
Arthur is now 4 and a half and Layla is 21 months.
I attended the Stephanie Hale Millionaire Authors Bootcamp which was an awesome experience.
I’m going to write a book the concept of which is to inspire others who have gone through life in my position that it doesn’t have to be like it is and that everyone can beat social phobia.
Plus the fact I think my life has been all about ‘Finding Me – Finding You’ (working title) and I will enjoy writing it.

Happy New Year 2012.
I walked in the rain today down to the sea, and there on the shore line I had an encounter with a seal. The seal was swimming along the shoreline, very close to the beach. Every now and again it stopped and had a look around at one point it stared at me and I found myself waving. Encounters with large mammals of the sea is such an awe inspiring event that it made me feel so great especially today 1/1/2012.
At the very end of 2008 my grandson Arthur was born my parents died in 2010 and on 15th August 2011 my grandaughter Layla was born.
Arthur has just turned 3 – gosh how time flies.
My new grandchild at 30wks. Saw he or she yawn on video just amazing. Don’t want to appear obsessive but I when I think back to when my children were born and I wasn’t even offered a scan at all except with my youngest because I’d had problems, and then only at 12 wks, as an aside she was born 6 wks early. Things have come on a pace in the last 30 years.
Well much to my delight my daughter is having another child. So welcome to the womb.
