They are always with you!

I am privileged to have known a lovely lady by the name of Hilary Fortune. She has passed over now but she was, to me, a truly gifted clairvoyant.
She was the neighbour of Pauline, a friend of mine and she would often sit with us both and chat about her life.MPj04443610000[1]

Please allow me to tell you a truly uplifting tale.
It is a true story about my friend Pauline and a terrible tragedy that devastated her life and how Hilary’s clairvoyant powers helped her.

Pauline’s 19 year old son was killed in a motor bike accident. He was survived by his sister and parents…well I say survived but something died in that house that day.

A couple of years had passed and Pauline was still not coping very well. It was her son’s birthday and the ritual was that, on his birthday, Pauline would meet her daughter at the crematorium to find his name in the memorial book and they would have a little cry together.
Pauline hated that place and on this occasion she arrived a little before her daughter. She waited and waited but her daughter didn’t come. She was lost! Her daughter always had the book ready for her, page open in the right place.

How would she find his name…Pauline searched and searched with tears running down her face but she couldn’t find him. When her daughter finally came she quickly flipped the pages and there he was….. Paul, dearly Beloved of ….

They had a cuddle and cry then they silently made their way home.

As Pauline arrived at her house she saw Hilary sitting on her doorstep waiting for her.

“Pauline, I have seen your son”, she said, “I don’t understand it but this is his message.
He said, The book…couldn’t find my name. Why did you cry? That cold place don’t go any more. Always with you – love you!

Clairvoyance as a term has its origins from the French word claire, which means “clear”, and voyance, “seeing”. It literally means ‘clear seeing’.
Mary clearly saw Paul that day and Pauline could, finally, go on with her life knowing that her son was safe.

When you need comfort in the sadness, when you need to understand the madness, listen for the signs around you and know that love and light surround you!

What I call enlightenment.

What would you define as peace? Would you say it is when the kids have gone to bed and the house is quiet?

Would you say it is when the lights go out in your bedroom and you can relax into a deep sleep?

Perhaps you feel you are at peace when all the bills are paid or the shopping done?…Not really. Continue reading

I had a dream the other night.Newborn's Feet Cradled in Parent's Hand

I was Supermom. I had it all. Comfortable lifestyle, cute
kids, great husband.

And I felt trapped.


In talking with other moms, I learn this feeling is the norm
more than the exception. We want it all, but don’t have our
own personal definition of ‘all’. Which is a problem. If
we’re achieving based on others’ expectations, we’re bound
to come to a time of disappointment. On the other hand,
genuinely discovering our own journey is time-expensive and
not backed by some sort of cosmic guarantee!

A wise woman once said to me that when you hang on so tight
you’re squeezing, things are slipping through your fingers
anyway. Hm.

Have you ever wondered what would happen if you just let go?

Let go of…

– perfectionism.
– keeping up.
– being right all the time.
– a particular body image.
– the illusion of total time control.

Now, please hear what I’m NOT saying.

– I’m not saying to stop being responsible.
– I’m not saying to stop planning, goal getting and
– And I’m absolutely not saying to stop dreaming!

But after we plan and consequently set our plans in motion,
I think we need to do a reality check.

– Toddlers often don’t potty-train on schedule.
– Teenagers aren’t always interested in bonding during our
appointed ‘quality time’.
– Husbands often have schedules (and ideas) of their own.
– The car rarely breaks down when you DON’T need it.
– Our career planning makes sense on paper, but classes
three nights a week for two years plus fulltime work and
raising a family can choke the life out of anybody!

Letting go is about getting a firm grip on our expectations
and being flexible even when life goes careening out of
control. It’s about understanding that time management is a
tool and a guideline, not a straitjacket. Most importantly,
letting go is about building reality into our life dreams.
For example…

We can pad our schedules with extra time for the daily
adventures of life or we can be continually stressed. Our

We can DECIDE what success means to each of us individually
and set our sights accordingly, stubbornly refusing to
settle for someone else’s version of happiness.

We can accept that we get 24 hours each day to…make things
happen, laugh a little, love a lot, and learn to know when
to call it a day.

What am I really saying? That we can learn how to focus on
what truly counts for each of us, plan our energies
accordingly, and then enjoy the fruits and near-fruits of
our labors. We may find that our dreams will be a bit
tempered and our actual days will soar with astonishing

And maybe even…joy.
