Hi beautiful people

This is my new Blog, designed to simply post beautiful, inspiring and awesome reflections, memories, imaginings and things – about our Beautiful World !!

I already have another WordPress blog about Fascinating Animals, but lately I have had an “impulse” or a voice telling me to create this new blog, where I can post about nice things (to me anyway) and not necessarily about Animals.  If you would like to “Like” a post or page on this site, or to leave a comment, you will need to sign in via Facebook or Twitter, or with your WordPress account.   I have chosen this method to prevent spam that the site otherwise receives.

So, welcome to Our Lovely World.

i-sew-cute treasures !

Shell-necklace-1

Today my treasures, 3 of them and more, arrived from an amazing craftswoman, June, based in Ohio USA.

I am thrilled with my large heart shaped pendant, filled with real tiny sea-shells and star-fish, and with my deer ring – so cute and sweet and cheery against a vivid blue and snowy background scene.

You can see from June’s Etsy store, link above, that her imaginative and highly beautiful and creative jewellery is creating quite a “storm” e.g. Miley Cyrus wears an  **  i-sew-cute **  large sparkling red heart shaped ring.

My own interest in these treasures began a while ago when I bought 2 of June’s heart shaped Unicorn pendants.  I gifted these to my 2 young nieces, whom love them.

Shell-necklace-2

Well, this ocean themed pendant and the dear ring are mine!  Even though I have got small hands, I actually wear large “statement” type rings, and I LOVE bling, and I love my 2 new pieces of jewellery, thank you to June.

In the photo I’m wearing what I call my “Kylie” glasses – they are my reading glasses (and I call them my Kylie glasses because they look somewhat like something I thought Kylie Minogue would wear, LOL) …. and you can see just how large the sparkly pendant is too – at 2.5 inches x 2 inches.  The pendant and ring are made from eco-friendly resin and glitter, and the ring band is quite adjustable.

Lately I have been feeling quite depressed at work because although I am a nice person and do my utmost in my workplace to include and support all others, I have moved to an expanded work team at a new location within the CBD / city – – –  and not feeling understood / acknowledged / appreciated or genuinely supported – even to the extent that women in my own immediate team whom I have shown the aforementioned to – –  were lashing out at me.   Too many harsh things one after the other – so RETREAT …..  I couldn’t face them again so I took the day off work.

No, I do not bury my head in the sand and avoid resolutions, or get unnecessarily angry with anyone.  I always try to make sense of things and try to improve my own-self in terms of my relationships with others and getting what I truly want – which is the aforementioned.

Sometimes this takes a huge effort ….. and you know what ??

You can expect nice surprises from Life, as well as not so pleasant unexpected things, I have learned.  With my jewellery, June also kindly sent me a gorgeous rainbow Cat-Unicorn !!  Here she is.  I gave a cry of delight when I saw this card and exclaimed “Oh, that is sewwwww cute”.    It is and it has warmed my Heart.    This sweet colourful surprise has helped heal me today, as has my heart pendant and animal themed dome shaped ring.

So, as you travel through Life, keep your heart open for rewards and nice surprises.

And for some gorgeous and uplifting jewellery head over now to

  **   i-sew-cute **

https://www.etsy.com/au/shop/isewcute?ref=l2-shopheader-name#about

 

Make sure you read all of June’s “Announcements” and her “About” page.   June is not only a gifted artisan but an inspiration to me, and I wish June and her family well.  Now, my rainbow Unicorn cat, my deer friend & my Star-fish and Sea-shells are all going to have a rendezvous with me, and we will relax, surf the waves (so to speak) and be happy.

Thank you June.

Tom Thumb adds !

Tom Thumb is a character of English folklore. The History of Tom Thumb was published in 1621, and was the first fairy tale printed in English. Tom is no bigger than his father’s thumb, and his adventures include being swallowed by a cow, tangling with giants, and becoming a favourite of King Arthur.   Apparently Tom Thumb was good at calculating too.

When I was at High School, I was awarded the Honour Certificate for being the best History student in Year 12.  I love to think about the origin or source of things, and about history.

I bought a beautiful working Tom Thumb adding machine / slide adder in mint condition, together with stylus, case and instructions from the Vintage and Mod Shop on Etsy !!

Strawberry Quartz perfume bottle

strawberryquartz-perfume

Friday 9 June at 9.09 PM here in Perth, Western Australia, was the zenith of the “Strawberry mini Full Moon so I thought it fitting for me to share my strawberry quartz Meli Moli perfume gem bottle.  I was so lucky this year to find this beauty on-line at half price, so of course I had to break into my savings, to purchase this rare Strawberry quartz perfume bottle.

Quartz with red inclusions of iron oxide is rare, and is often sold under the name strawberry quartz or red fire quartz. Strawberry Quartz carries all the vibrations of Clear Quartz, with the additional attributes of universal love, understanding of purpose, and seizing the day.

Carrying Strawberry Quartz can be soothing and calming for someone who works in a fast-paced environment. I can report that holding my beautiful Strawberry Quartz perfume bottle certainly makes me feel calm & loving. The Chinese based Meli Moli company has worked with German designer Mr Bernd Wolf to produce their exquisite gemstone perfume bottles. Anthony Mong used to carve from ivory, and now carves these bottles for the Arts King Company.

Dumfries House & Murano Chandeliers

MuranoChandelier

Click   HERE   for wonderful photos of Dumfries House including the Pink Dining room with its Murano glass chandelier !

The YouTube video below shows the complete documentary on the restoration of Dumfries House.

Designed by the brothers John Robert and James Adam and furnished by cabinetmaker Thomas Chippendale, Dumfries House, set in 2000 acres in Ayrshire, is considered the most gloriously intact 18th-century house in Scotland.   It was built in 1759 for Earl William Crichton-Dalrymple, the 5th Earl of Dumfries, and Knight of the Order of the Thistle (in 1752) .  The substantial estates were inherited by the Earl’s nephew, Patrick Macdouall-Crichton.

The estate passed onto the 7th Marquess of Bute but in 2007 there was no money to maintain the up-keep of the grounds and of the beautiful stately house, and it was put up for sale.  The house contains some of the most important collections by master furniture-maker Thomas Chippendale.  Due to its significance and the risk of the furniture collection being distributed and auctioned,  in 2007 the estate and its entire contents was purchased for £45m by a consortium headed by HRH Charles, Prince of Wales, including a £20m loan from the Prince’s charitable trust.

The vision of HRH is to restore Dumfries House to its former glory and to preserve British workmanship and architecture, as a part of Scottish heritage, for present and future generations.  Regeneration has by no means been confined to the house.

Crystals & Colorado Gold

Today I received a gorgeous little bottle of sparkling gold from Colorado, with a little Moose gracing the top.  I purchased this from    sshillbilly   and am 110% happy with the transaction.  The sweet little bottle was well packed and arrived from the U.S.A. all the way to “Down Under” very fast.  I excitedly un-packed the box, noting an extra package, which turned out to be a terrific magnetic Moose chimes for the fridge!  My partner and I love it and immediately put it on our refrigerator.   I said “that’s funny (as in amazing) because I have been really wanting a small set of chimes.”

I placed the gold flakes in the bottle (being watched over by the Moose) next to my lovely crystals and my new “Zen Garden Crystal set”.   The Zen Garden tumbled stones are for “success & abundance” and I was seeking a little bottle of gold to put near it, then I found an item – which would be PERFECT.

Genuine Gold Flakes Colorado Deco Bottle With Moose on Top

It really is a thrill for me to now have this gold bottle because lately I’ve been watching the Documentary series “Prospectors” and love watching the teams prospect by hand for topaz, aquamarine and other crystals in beautiful Colorado.  Also I watch “Klondike Gold” where the teams go to unbelievable heights to get gold.  The gold in this bottle glows.  It is real gold and it’s a good sign to have what you would like more of with your crystals or Meditation objects, and to keep them clear / clean of course, and thus “charged,  and to infuse them with your positive intents.

MOOSE CHIMES

Furthermore, my “inner Animal Totem or Guide” is the  BUFFALO  –  see my other Blog  here .

Now I know that a Buffalo is NOT a Moose, and a Moose is not a Buffalo, however I love Moose or Elk and I respect all animals.  I hope that Moose, in their natural habitats, will be able to stay away from troublesome humans and flourish.

Head over to Rick’s  eBay Store  for a really interesting bargain, if you want, and you won’t be disappointed.  I am carrying around my bottle of gold today – so moving it from my Study to the Lounge room to the Kitchen to Dining area –  because it makes me feel like a million dollars – and the Moose totem makes me feel comfortable.

It “warms the cockles” to be surprised with the thoughtfulness and generosity of a welcome free Gift.   We are all in this one Earth together Folks, let’s appreciate & respect the Earth’s resources, learn from each other, and be nice to each other … altogether in our Lovely World.

Star Seeds, Indigo, Crystals & Rainbows

From what I know, the term “Star Seed” or “Star Child” is a broad generic term for human beings whose spirits are from off-planet originally, and who are Light Workers, and these Light Workers include related beings in groups with labels such as Indigo, Crystal and Rainbow. These labels are indicators of when these Light Workers incarnated on Earth, e.g. Indigos are the first Wave. The Star Seeds that came after them have been labelled “Crystal “Children” but this is really “Crystal Person” as of course a child grows up to become an adult, and those born after the Crystals, have been labelled Rainbow “Children”.

I am said to be Indigo with 17 contracts / agreements and 7 guides and 8 guardians ( made up of teachers and protectors, the latter includes a rainbow Dragon and a Black Panther ). A lady called Laura Lee Mistycah did a “reading” for me about 3 years ago, which told me the aforementioned.

http://www.mistychouse.com/Psychic/Readings.htm

I am sharing here 3 of my “Contracts” as told to me in 2013 by Laura Lee, a First Wave Indigo  – think of them as gifts & abilities to use in the 3-D world, to help humanity evolve.

Truth Definer/ Re-Definer-Catapult-er

This means that you have the ability to sift through crap, and find the truth and redfine it if there is pollution in it, and then thrust it out to the world!

This can be in many ways….you can “smell out lies” and then see the truth of what is behind it all if someone is trying to schmooze you you can nail it and nail the one who is trying to do the schmoozing.

Also, if you read a book that has some muted truth ….you can detect it.

It is important to take a stand when it is important.

THAT is the key

Sometimes you just detect it and make a note of it and say nothing other times you nail it depending on if you need to stay in incognito or not, especially important when dealing with new agers and “light workers”.

Sometimes you just sit back and watch and other times you nail them with their improprieties.

Also you can detect flaws in books…this is important.  so much is misinformation, and you have the ability to pick that up.

Now you can put up your “truth detectors” and filter out the crap and the things you may not be sure of you put on the shelf for further reference.

“Indigo Advocate/Igniter”

You have the service contract to find other Indigos and help them wake up.  There are many out there looking for the truth of who they are and you can help direct them to the information and then support their activation

“Scar Healer”

This is emotional and physical wounds and scars.  You actually have the ability to heal physical scars!  Also you have the ability to see an old ‘battle wound” and help the person heal it present and past life and this will help to heal the physical scars.

Now here is the “caveat emptor” or the fact that what I make of these words which Laura told me, is up to me.  Many Indigos & other Light Workers have the same “contracts” or tasks, such as Truth Detector, and there are some that are more unique.  Just because Laura Lee said I can heal physical scars doesn’t mean that I am!  In fact I have a pretty good scar down my front due to having had Open Heart Surgery in October 2014 and I haven’t healed that.  So, go figure.  By this I mean, these “contracts” or abilities can be latent rather than expressed or used.  I still have to work out for myself how to heal scars.

aa-light-worker

Apparently many of us human beings on Earth incarnated into life forms on other Planets before Earth, and this concept is called Planetary Origin. Look up Jo Amidon Planetary Origin and you will find the planets that souls have come from.

Google can be a confusing place to discriminate information about Crystals and Rainbows, etc.  Basically, Star Seeds are certain Souls from other Planets whom came to Earth specifically to help humankind evolve. Other Souls from off-planet may have come here to do the opposite, e.g. Reptilians from the Draco star system / constellation.

I’m said to be from the Pleiades. 🙂

http://lightconnection.org/readings/specialty-readings/

Don’t forget the labels describe how Star Seeds born in those particular eras tend toward being, but an Indigo could also have some of the touted characteristics of a Rainbow child and vice versa. I for one don’t care at all about whether I am an Indigo or not, but I do feel that I am here on Earth solely to help humanity evolve, through my websites and breaking down structures that don’t work.

If you type spiritual gifts reconnections into Google you will find a fascinating list of “gifts” or purposes of Star Seeds, for example, I am a member of the “test pilot” and I am a Grid Worker carrying out Calibration or “bridge building”.

http://reconnections.net/spiritual_gifts_intro.htm

Light Workers are of course those on Earth who genuinely wish to make our World a nice and co-operative and equitable place for all.  Do I believe that I’m from another Planet or that I am an Indigo?  Well the answer is No but neither do I not believe it.  Go figure.  The ideas resonate with me.  The Cosmos is a big place and I for one think there must be more to Life on Earth, than what most people think there is.

Religious Bracelets and other treasures

religiousbracelet8

I may have mentioned in another post that I was brought up Catholic.  Well I have just bought a beautiful Fellowship Bracelet from a wonderful eBay seller  the Immaculata   for a good friend of mine in the USA.   It is a unique chunky bracelet with charms, as above.

Now I’ve gone back to the site & purchased for myself a pretty multi-coloured stone chip bracelet.  It has a small stone butterfly and stone cross.  When I was younger my favorite bracelet was one with a stone cross!  It is beautiful.  I love multi-colours too!

aa-stone-chip-bracelet

Head over now to look at the amazing array of items for yourself in the United States, or another country – –   or for a Friend or family member.   UPDATE:  Sadly (for me) I did not get the bracelet above, because the Seller could not post it to me in Australia due to shipping constraints.  If I was in the USA the same country as the seller, I would have been able to purchase it.

Have a Heart !    Well, not one of mine because I will never give away my Heart, haha.  But gemstone heart shapes are very beautiful & soothing to have by your computer, or by your bedside, on your dressing table or anywhere you choose where you can see them, feel them and pick them up and connect to their energies.  You can shop around on eBay and on Etsy for your own gemstone hearts.

I bought mine from various online Sellers and I have a small palm-stone sized beautiful rose quartz heart which I carry around with me, in a pouch, in my pocket.

I have just been lucky enough to find Crystal Miracles on Etsy from whom I bought myself a small pocket sized banded agate heart.

bandedagateheart

Crystal Miracles has very affordable beautiful gemstone hearts and other crystal wonders that can be posted around the world.  I fell in love with the Earth’s treasures in this Etsy store and have bought some for friends!

This Seller also has a great eBay store –    Crystal Universe

 

Don’t forget my friend Ethan’s shop on Etsy too – for gorgeous gemstone bracelets for MEN and women.  These creations inspire and the various gemstones have properties which can work with a person’s own energies to impart the qualities of the gemstones.  Just “google” e.g.  sugilite meaning  Or   sugilite metaphysical properties.

I have the most wonderful beautiful spiritual gemstone bracelets already from Ethan.  Check out my amazing PURPLE SUGALITE bracelet from Ethan, at the Link above!

Lemon Meringue

lemondoll

 

Strawberry Shortcake’s best friend is “Lemon Meringue.”   I’ve just bought her together with her Butterfly friend, Henna, from a super eBay Seller – Lotus Eight and I love her to bits.  Yes, I am a bit of a Doll collector and already have the traditional small size Strawberry Shortcake with her pet cat  Custard.

My Lemon Meringue comes in mint condition in a box, and she is a beauty – a large 15 inch size to go with my large Strawberry Shortcake Doll !   This sweet lemon scented girl will be well cared for in my home.

I can say “I was over the Moon” when I saw her listed in Australia, pristine and lemon smelling, in her Box, because she is even more my favorite than the strawberry type.  I saw one of these large lemon dolls years ago but it slipped past me, then to my surprise & pleasure I saw Lotus Eight had it for sale at a great price.  Just in time for my Birthday which is on the 14th September.  Whoever said only kids play with Dolls is just …… wrong.

More Dolls to be listed soon on the Lotus Eight website !

Winning the Watching of the Rio 2016 Olympics – Channel 7 (Seven) Coverage

This is a guide for watching the broadcasts in Australia but the same principle applies for watching television and the “app” in any Country.

First of all, you may have a Book or a newspaper item or magazine with a general Schedule of events, for example I have a magazine called “Official Australian Olympic Team Guide to the 2016 Olympic Games – what to watch in Rio” which has a very nice 2 page spread (not removable) showing coloured blocks for all days of the Olympics denoting the Events scheduled, separating out the Medal events.

However, you really need a precise guide of the exact scheduled times of the Events to make “head or tail” of watching what you really want to watch on TV or on the Channel 7 App here in Australia.  I learned this the hard way.

I found that if you simply type  Rio Olympics Schedule  ( or Olympic Games Rio 2016 ) into Google you should get the day’s scheduled events pop up, then when you click on the arrow above “All Events” down the bottom, Google kindly shows much detailed information ( but don’t worry – you won’t see any Results ).  See screenshot below.

Google Olympics Schedule15082016

Rio_OlympicsChannelSeven_FeaturedEvents

NOTE:  that Google will kindly show you the  LOCAL  times.  Click on “Overview” to return to the screen above, if you have navigated to one of the other Pages.

If Google isn’t the “search engine” that you use, just type Google into your search field, then click on the resultant link – to go to Google.  You will know you are using Google because their name appears at the top of the Search area.  Make sure that the Date and Time on your mobile device or computer’s clock is correct.

Black Onyx – stone for protection

12 mm faceted Black Onyx rondelles, rose gold beaten beads and a 12 mm lustrous cultured pearl – 21 inches length.

Black Onyx is said to bestow self control, decision making, intuition and protection. It is a powerful protection stone as it absorbs negative energy of people to release mental stress and promote emotional well-being.

Black Onyx is associated with the planet Saturn, and will bring a positive vibe for those born in the shadow of the planet Saturn. It is said to be a stone for the Leo zodiac sign.  Well I am a quadruple Virgo but I have the Moon in Leo when I was born!

Black Onyx is very easily scratched if not handled with care even easier to clean the stone by using the commercial jewelry polish. Once polished, the piece should be washed with hot water and dried with a soft cloth. A drop of olive oil can produce beautiful light of the stone. Rinse water can also clean the dirt but do not ever soak the stone because it can fade the color. Avoid two stones together to avoid friction. Suggested to avoid the heat, light or excessive chemicals to extend durability of the stone.

I am selling this necklace because I have so many necklaces & brooches, I really need to down-size.  This beauty although gorgeous and energizing is not suitable for every-day wear for me, as I work in records management ( often in casual wear, packing & moving around boxes ) and I don’t go out alot to functions or places where I would wear this.  Even if I did, I have many other necklaces which I would rather wear.

IF YOU DON’T LIVE IN AUSTRALIA, and would like to purchase this Necklace, please use the Contact form if you can purchase this for $100 AUD ( I bought it for over $100 AUD and it will cost you less in USD ) plus postage.

Australian buyers can go to eBay Australia.

The Lord’s Prayer in Aramaic

Translation from original Aramaic

O cosmic Birther, from whom the breath of life comes,
who fills all realms of sound, light and vibration.
May Your light be experienced in my utmost holiest.  Your Heavenly Domain approaches.
Let Your will come true in the universe (all that vibrates) just as on earth (that is material and dense).
Give us wisdom (understanding, assistance) for our daily need,
detach the fetters of faults that bind us, (karma) like we let go the guilt of others.
Let us not be lost in superficial things (materialism, common temptations), but let us be freed from that what keeps us off from our true purpose.
From You comes the all-working will, the lively strength to act, the song that beautifies all and renews itself from age to age.
Sealed in trust, faith and truth. (I confirm with my entire being)

 

The Lord’s Prayer, also called the Our Father and the Pater Noster, is a venerated Christian prayer that, according to the New Testament, was taught by Jesus to his disciples.  Did you know that this prayer which Jesus taught on a hill in Gallilee to his followers who asked how may we pray, was originally of course, spoken in Jesus’ native tongue, Aramaic?

This prayer is recorded in the Gospel of Luke (Ch. 11:2-4), written in a final form about 80CE, and the Gospel of Matthew (Ch. 6:9-13), which was completed approximately in 85CE. The longer version of this prayer from the Book of Matthew has become the standard in the liturgy and daily prayers of over one billion Christians worldwide.

The Gospels and Books of the New Testament were set down in Greek between 20 and 80 years after they were spoken. Greek was the vernacular of the West and the language of commerce. The vernacular of the East, and Jesus’ language, was Aramaic.

I love the original translation and the version in Aramaic sung by Pascale Sakr below. What I really like is the reference to the all gender origin of God – the Cosmic Birther – rather than putting a masculine spin on this prayer ( why not say Our Father / Mother or Our Mother for that matter )?  I LOVE the ending about the song that renews eternally!

There is also another version on You Tube with the words, that I like – link below.
