A Wink From The Universe

Hi Lovelies,

Are you paying attention?

It’s those moments that feel like  a wink from the universe that let us know all is as it should be.

Synchronicity is the concept of ‘meaningful coincidence’.

From the moment I first became aware of it, the phenomenon has featured very strongly in my life.  It is a powerful reminder that we are in fact magnets.  Walking, talking, thinking, feeling magnets.

I for one have certainly noted the many times in my life when I felt like crap.  I focussed on it; got stuck in it and drew more of it to myself.  I didn’t mean to, but I wasn’t strong enough to be aware of my consciousness and stay in a place of gratitude.  I focussed on what I didn’t have rather than what I had.  I thought about what people did to me instead of what I could do for them.  The results were to be expected.  Crap, crap and more crap.


On the other hand, I’ve observed myself feeling super wonderful and watched magic happen.  During those times, which I’m proud to say are now way more commonplace than the above, I’ve looked after myself better in body, mind and spirit.  My thoughts have been positive and I’ve been able to nip any pesky little negative thoughts in the bud, without even so much as a trip on a crooked footpath.  It’s been smooth sailing and full of surprises.  Of the good variety.

It’s fun to watch what happens when you allow yourself to think the best and only the best.  Let all of the other stuff go.


For example, when I was eighteen years old, I told my beautiful Mum that I was going to win a car.  She said “You can’t say that!”  and I said “You watch!”  I believed it with every inch of my being.  I didn’t attach myself to the results by entering in to every single raffle I could get my hands on, I just trusted that it would happen when it was meant to.  It didn’t happen overnight, but it did happen.

In 1998, I took out my first loan to buy a car.  In doing so, I automatically went in to the draw for a silver, limited edition, convertible Holden Barina.  When my loan advisor gave me the raffle ticket, I saw the number on it was ‘123400’.  I said to her “That’s the winning ticket” …and it was.  It cemented my belief in the power of the mind.

As you may be aware, I’m writing a book.  I’ve been madly editing it for months.  Yesterday was my husband and my twelve year wedding anniversary and I just happened to arrive at the page where I wrote about the day we got engaged.  How’s that for synchronicity?!

Later in the day, I had the privilege of working with the super lovely, best selling author, Rachael Johns.  While chatting away, she offered me the direct contact details of her publisher and is sending an introduction email for me first.  I was blown away.  But then again, I was kind of expecting something like that to happen.

I’ve also been thinking a lot about my book launch.  It may be a fair way off at this point, but I’m allowed to be excited about it now.  I was working with another one of my amazing clients late last week and she very kindly offered me her stunning home as the venue for it.

My subconscious has asked, my heart has trusted and the universe is answering my wishes.

The world responds to the thoughts and feelings that we give attention to.

I have written on my bathroom mirror, ‘Wonderful things will happen for me today’, so I see it and recite it every single morning.  You should try it.  It’s kind of magic.

Until next time…

Love & Light always,

Feather. Brick. Truck.

Hi Lovelies,

It’s been one of those weeks.  You know the kind.  We ALL have them.

Have you heard of the ‘Feather.  Brick.  Truck’ concept?

First, you get a tickle from a ‘feather’.  This is usually a gentle reminder that something is not quite right and things need to change.  You may get two or three ‘feathers’.  

If you don’t stop for a moment and listen to what the universe is trying to tell you, you’ll find a ‘brick’ heading in your direction.  Yep.  Not so gentle.  It’s time to be conscious when this happens.  

If you STILL aren’t getting it, then you may find yourself getting run over by a truck.  Not literally I hope but… well… you get my drift.  It could be financial, emotional or even physical in the form of an illness.

It first came in to my orbit when I was reading a post written by the gorgeous Jemma Gawned from ‘Naked Treaties’.


I met Jemma back in 1997 and we got along famously.  It’s no wonder.  Our birthday falls on exactly the same day, so she is just as awesome as I am.  Wink.

She was writing about some experiences that  she was having and the post resonated with me on a deep level.  

It is SUCH a great analogy don’t you think?

I have since found out it is a ‘thing’.

In 2007 I had a ‘truck’ hit me in the form of pneumonia.  At the time, I wasn’t looking after myself very well.  It was the worst I’d ever felt in my life.  I knew I HAD to change my ways.  It took me a while to get there but now I’m happy to say that looking after my health is a priority.  Without it, you have nothing.

Okay.  About my week…

It started off swimmingly but then, I began receiving the signals.

Thank you to @rahuluw for allowing me to use your pic.

The feather came first.  I was driving to work the other day, when a car came screaming past to overtake me.  He was doing about 90kmph in a 60kmph zone.  The speed made his car kick up a big piece of wood that was on the ground and it slammed in to the front of my car.  I’m sure I don’t need to tell you there was swearing!!  The noise was so loud it frightened the shit out of me.  I’m lucky the air bags didn’t go off.  Thank goodness there was no real damage to the car.

I was angry at the driver and didn’t even think for a minute that it was a sign telling ME to slow down.  I was too caught up in my reaction to notice.  Later in the day…I got it.

When I arrived at my makeup and hair gig that afternoon, I was still going like the clappers.  I’d been on turbo for a couple of days and bad things happen when I’m in that mode.  I set up my kit and turned my heated tong on, ready to curl my gorgeous clients’ hair.  I then picked up the tong from the wrong end and burnt my hand badly.  Yep, I had a brick thrown at me.  It hurt like hell.  Suddenly, I got it.  I needed to slow down or I was going to REALLY hurt myself.

I don’t need to go in to any more details but lets just say, a few other things happened this week that were also telling me the same thing.

It’s easy to get caught up in reacting to something you don’t think is about you.  In reality, life is a reflection of what is going on inside of us.  The universe is our mirror.  If you don’t stop for a minute to really look in to it, you’ll miss  the signs.  They lead us in the right direction.

Today is Friday.  I’m going to make sure I take it easy today.  It’s time to slow down and just breathe.

Happy Friday Lovelies.

Until next time…

Love and Light always,
