A Loving Reminder to You Each Day


Imagine what kind of life you would you have if you woke up each morning knowing you were truly safe, appreciated and loved.

What if you knew that whatever happened in your day was in divine and perfect order and exactly as it was supposed to be?

No matter what anyone said to you, suppose you could accept it as a gift and reply ‘Thank you for loving me!’

How would it be if you lived your life as if you were magnificent, confident, capable, abundant, happy, peaceful and successful?

If you believed that your life really mattered, that you were important and that you were making a huge difference in the world, what would your life really be like?

Would it not be amazing, thrilling and joyful?

So what is stopping you living such a life now?

Just your unconscious beliefs and the meanings and conclusions you arrive at about yourself and your life because you are looking through the lens of limitation, lack and negativity and focussing on finding evidence to hold yourself in chains! You believe this to be the truth!

Have you ever wondered whether there is more to your life than what you presently see?

No matter what your life appears like at the moment, you can transform it to one of happiness, harmony and purpose if you are willing to raise your awareness, focus on the higher wisdom that lives within you and follow through with guided action.

Basically, all that is required is to change the lens you are looking through. Change your focus to change your mind and transform your life.

You know those Magic Eye 3D illusion images you get where you have to defocus your vision in order to penetrate the pattern to see the image underneath? At first glance, you may not be able to see it but as you persevere, all of a sudden, the image comes into focus. Whilst you were just placing your attention on the surface of the pattern, the deeper image was not available to you, but, once you changed your focus, you were able to perceive it. That is how you may be living your life; just seeing the surface and missing or not looking for, the hidden meaning underneath!

If you wish to create a fulfilling life, begin looking for the deeper messages within every situation and personal interaction that comes your way.

Your focus is paramount because whatever you look for you will find, so focus on what you wish to manifest in your life.

 I would ask you to step out of your comfort zone and live your life each day as if everything written about you above was true, because it actually IS.

If you were to use your mind like a laser beam and focus it constantly on living the truths I have mentioned, in a short space of time, you would notice many positive changes.

So, I invite you to read this page each morning, refocus your mind on the truth about yourself and notice your life soar to new heights!



I am eternally grateful to the Universe, my Angels and guides for my own journey through life and all the lessons I have learnt along the way, without which this book would never have been written.

I give thanks to my parents who contributed to my growth and helped me become the person I am today. A special thank you to my husband, Gordon, and son, Chris, who continue to teach me that only love is real; everything else is just illusion.

Thank you to all of the people who have crossed my path, for they have touched my life in so many ways and provided precious wisdom which I can now pass on to others.

Author’s Preface


Altering one thought can change the course of your whole life.

How do I know? I know because I went from an unhappy, meaningless life where I hit rock bottom in England, to a meaningful, fulfilling life in Australia, all within a space of eight months.

I did so by becoming aware of a limiting belief: I realised that I had been living a life of ‘so little’, feeling unworthy, when instead, I deserved ‘so much more’.

By reconnecting with the higher power in my life, asking for guidance and following where it was leading me, I found my true purpose and a life of joy and fulfilment. You can find out more about my story in chapter ten.

If I can do it, so can you!

Please do not despair if you are feeling hopeless or defeated by life at this moment in time, for it really is ‘darkest before the dawn’. Yet the dawn always arrives and there is light and support at the end of the tunnel if you will take the first step towards it.

Your life is not set in concrete nor are you powerless to do anything about it, as you will discover throughout this book. I know what it is like to be in darkness, facing crises with nobody to turn to. I would therefore like to share with you the wisdom, learning and ways forward I have found that have helped sustain me through my life and that I teach to clients, in the hope that they will guide you when you are feeling lost, uplift you when you feel down and be a practical as well as spiritual guide for you, throughout your own life.

The purpose of this book is to shed light on and help you transform unquestioned thoughts, unconscious behaviours and rigid beliefs that have held you back from the life you were born to live.

It will help you discover your authentic self, clarify where you are heading in life and help you positively express your higher purpose and energy in the world.

As it is a book of personal and spiritual growth, there are action steps to take and ‘stuff’ may come up for you to heal and clear. As such, I trust that the Universe has placed this book in your hands today and has used me as a catalyst for your healing.

If, whilst reading this book, at any time you feel offended then I apologise to you in advance. It is not my intent to offend or disrespect anyone; however, please note that if you do feel that way, it may mean that fear is coming up for you as some of your beliefs are being challenged. So, if you want to move forward, just ask yourself what belief you are holding onto in order to feel offended.

As a messenger, my aim is to inspire you to think, review and recreate your life. As such, you may find parts of this book confronting, especially if you are religious, because I need to offer a different point of view for you to become aware of and question the beliefs and perceptions you have been living by.

May this book inspire you to reach for more happiness, joy and meaning in your own life, to create deeper relationships with others and to find the courage to make changes so that you can live a life of peace, harmony and joy with no regrets at the end.





Happiness walks unrecognised by our side

while we focus on misery. Maria Parkinson

CHAPTER 1 part sample

Have You Planned For Your Happiness?


To live a harmonious and meaningful life, you first need a recipe and to know how to put the ingredients together. If you are baking a cake, you do not just throw everything into a baking tin, put it into the oven and hope for the best. Neither do you miss out an ingredient and expect the cake to be a success. You follow a procedure to make sure your cake has the best chance of coming out the way you want it to.

So, why do most of us roll on from day to day without a clue where we are really heading or how to get there?

Some of us hold our head in our hands and wonder how life has brought us to where we are now. We may continue hitting crises, producing unfulfilling relationships, rehashing the past, lacking direction and feeling disillusioned by life because things do not seem to be working out as we had hoped. Maybe it is because hoping is not enough to ensure a happy and fulfilling life. Perhaps it is because we simply do not know what else to try, what we really want, or have just resigned ourselves to believing this is as good as it gets.

Could it be that we have been using an outdated recipe and just need to change it?

We plan for our children’s futures, for our retirement, for our funeral, but how many of us plan for our own happiness and success in life? Many of us have never been taught how to do this.

Watching our own parents run their lives, we unquestioningly borrowed their blueprint, for better or worse, and so we may have created hit-and-miss results, not realising that the recipe does not suit us.

Through trial and error and many experiences, both positive and negative, I have discovered and understood the importance of following a recipe. It becomes your compass as you navigate life so that you know where you are heading and can get yourself back on course any time you have taken a detour.

In this book I am offering you a different recipe: one that has helped me transform my life and turn negativity into joy.

To live a life of meaning, fulfilment and joy requires self-awareness, spiritual connection, clarity, decision and action.

In order to create anything in your life, you require crystal clarity. Having a broad vision is fine to begin with. However, in order to bring that vision into everyday life and make it concrete, it is going to mean being specific and detailed. For example, if your relationship is not working, you first want to define what the real problem is and then decide how you would like it to be instead. If you just say ‘I want a happy relationship’ without defining what happiness means to you, how will you know what steps you are required to take to manifest it and how will you know when you have achieved it? Your vision will stay up in the clouds where it will be unreachable.

The next step after you have made your decision is to ask for advice as to how to proceed from your inner self and follow through with guided action. This will lead you to your highest good and what will bring you joy, not misery. It means being willing to surrender your will to the Higher Will of the Universe, trusting that whatever is right for you will appear.


What will this Recipe help you achieve if you follow it?

It will help you create and maintain more harmonious, loving and peaceful relationships.

You will find more purpose, meaning and fulfilment in your life as you express your true self in the world, knowing you are making a difference and adding value to others’ lives at the same time.

You will experience more vitality, empowerment and joy as you deepen the loving relationship with your own self.

You will realise that divine guidance and support are always available to you when you turn within and ask and that you are not alone in life.

You will know how to take the lead in your life and help yourself through the ‘hard times’ when you may feel stuck or overwhelmed.


What does this Recipe require of you?

As this is a recipe for living consciously it means being willing to question, re-evaluate and change anything in your life that is not contributing to your happiness.

It will involve adopting a more positive way of perceiving and being in the world.

It requires a willingness and ability to accept responsibility for everything you create in your life, instead of assigning blame or making excuses.

This recipe will take you out of your comfort zone and its success rests on being able to view your life from a majestic eagle’s vantage point rather than getting bogged down in negative appearances and emotions.

Looking at relationships and situations from a higher perspective means you can transcend negativity and live a happy and fulfilling life, with no regrets at the end.
