Doing some inner work

 Where does the time go? We know it actually hasn’t the real ability to fly as such but this year is behaving so oddly isn’t it. 

Do you feel like you are in a dream? I do. A bubble perhaps.  I keep saying ‘back in the summer’ when i actually mean, ‘at Easter,’ - because the weather was so incredible and I seem to have lost track.

Which leads me nicely on to this long awaited blog post. It’s been too long.  As thou know if you are an original follower of this blog, i adore writing these posts but life has taken over so much recently.

It’s time to brig you up to speed and start to share with you all of the wisdoms i have been learning in my abs sense on this website.

The past few days i have been off of all social media except for my YouTube channel. The reason? To do some ‘inner work’.

The law of attraction is the reason this blog was born but i have completely got that one sorted now. I’m a powerful manifester but it has sure taken a lot of work to be able to step into my skin and say that. So it’s time to go deeper and begin to connect to higher powers than me and the results are outstanding. I feel totally different.

People are giving me more time in their daily passing of life, smiles, chats, people chatting in the queue and generally making me feel like I have illuminated their day, the location and the moment. Nice beyond words.  I am incredible thankful for my life right now and I feel I have so much to catch up with - I will spend some time bringing you up to date on this blog. 

This year I had a serious health scare and manifested the cells going away; a miracle if you like. I thank my higher powers for this ability every day. I am super blessed.  I have also allowed some wonderful trades into my house to create the loveliest space I could have dreamed of and the work has unfolded flawlessly. The workmen have been helpful and kind and I have learnt so much from them.  This will all be released on YouTube and documented in this blog and I have been asked to release a book about it!

Currently, I am offering FREE coaching for my viewers and subscribers.  Yup, completely free. If you just want to pop me a question via email, that’s fine. We can voice note or if you are local, you can shout me a coffee and we can have an hour of health or life coaching. Anything you feel you want to chat over.  If i can help you, I will. 

The biggest news of this year so far in my professional life is the release of the book Covid-19 How it made us feel.  If you haven’t heard about this collection of stories from a mix of authors you can read about it here.  I joked about with other people saying, you watch, this will end up a best seller and guess what - your wish is my command, said the universe and we went straight to bestseller status. Crazy isn’t it! 

I loved writing, editing and publishing this book. Holding it in my hand now is just a wonderful feeling and i have so many more books to come.  Get yours by clicking here. 

The house renovations have taken over but now the coffee shops are open more mainstream in my local area, I can take the laptop and get writing freely. I love it. 

Life is certainly a blessing right now. Yet a rocky ride. I’m human, just as you are and together we can learn to ride those waves and get ourselves the best life we can manifest. As always, I will help you with sharing my tips here.  I wish I had a little more time for writing just now but  this really was a one shot chance at getting my house sorted and renovated ready to launch head on into my full time writer status.  I will be back more than ever before really soon but in the meantime, reach out to me with your questions and don’t forget to leave comments on my YouTube channel as I have always responded to every one on there.  

Remember, if you are struggling, this is your time on this earth to own the place in which you are stepping in to yourself. You’ve got this.

Much love, as always

Louise xoxo

Desiderata - what does that mean?


GO PLACIDLY amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment, it is as perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

Original text

For some, this is a deep text which is thought-provoking. For me, it was an eye-opening moment when I realised that my sharp-tongued father actually had a lot of spirituality in him. 

He laid in his induced coma as we said goodbye and I pleaded with him to bring me the songs he wanted for his funeral as I had forgotten what they were - although I felt very sure 'those were the days of our lives' by Queen was one of them. Sure enough, not 48 hours after Dad took his last breath, Mum came into the room with a puzzled look on her face and a small piece of faded, striped paper between her thumb and index finger. 
     'it's got all his songs on it and 'ere what does this word say? Desa - desari..?' Dad had listed his wishes including Desiderata to be read at his funeral. The words above list the thoughts, feelings and hopes I have (as you likely know by now) and Dad and I could have had some wonderful chats around this; if only he had let his barriers down enough to tell us of his dreams and thoughts.  Never mind, at least now I knew he had this level of spirituality in him and just kept it quiet through embarrassment. Yet the funeral debate came and people said it was too long to be read out during the service. I was insistent, 'Dad wanted it, we are reading it all.'

The order of service booklets had Desiderata printed through the middle so the people coming to pay their respects could take home those words and reflect on them as I had done. Wise words.

Bestseller in a hard hat

We are having major renovations in our house and felt it was important to take some time off as a family and chill out. During this weekend off is when i discovered my latest book "Covid-19 How it made us feel" (an anthology) hit the best seller list on Amazon. I was chuffed! The videos in this series are: Panic as we get news of the renovations starting why are we tearing down our walls? Renovation project delayed
