In my last blog ‘From Adversity to Opportunities’ I mentioned how experiencing a spiritual awakening led me to becoming a writer. Just like a book I also have a backstory, events that took place which has led me to where I am today. In the previous blog I told you about how I had to give up my business as a successful mobile beauty therapist after being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, and how life changing it was, in more ways than one! So, in this post I want to share with you how Divine Guidance inspired me to write the content that I do. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but this is me being my authentic self.

I wouldn’t call myself a religious person, but I do pray and believe in God, but it wasn’t until I was introduced to meditation that spirituality became a big part of my life. Now, meditation was not something I was very familiar with, I was always led to believe that it only opened you up to unpleasant things, so, when a friend invited me along to her meditation session, which I had refused on many occasions, I gave in and went along. I think I was more curious than anything and I really wasn’t in the best of moods that day.

Not knowing what to expect I went in with a very closed mind, it was a small group, I remember feeling uncomfortable especially when people were closing their eyes and inviting angels to be present with us, I thought, what had I let myself in for I just wanted to get up and leave, but for some reason I couldn’t move it was like I was stuck to the chair. Once I stopped resisting, I found myself feeling very relaxed and closed my eyes. I started to see beautiful colours swirling around as if they were talking to me (strange I know) I remember just smiling and then the tears started which turned in to sobbing, now, when I say tears, it wasn’t a trickle it was like Niagara Falls I just couldn’t stop crying. Once they stopped which seemed like ages, I felt different, like a new person, and that a heavy weight had been lifted, the only way I can describe it is as if the old me had left my body (again weird) and a new one had stepped in I had never felt this kind of happiness before, except having my children of course. And that is where my spiritual journey began.

From that day meditation became a daily practice and I started to connect with my angels. (Stay with me here) Yes, you heard right, angels. Did I see them, no, did I hear them, no, so how did I know they were angels? It was just a knowing, a knowing of a beautiful presence that was around me, I felt at peace, I was able to accept my MS and started to refocus on my life.

After a few weeks I started to get all these random words coming in my mind which I just ignored, but they kept coming, the more I ignored them the more I was getting until I finally wrote them down. It turned they were words of prayer.

It was explained to me that what I was receiving were downloads from the angels, messages that were for me to pass on. When I read the words, I found they were of great comfort to me, and I knew that they could also be of comfort to others that may be going through difficult times just as I was. I received forty prayers in total which apparently is a specific number in the bible of testing, trials, and triumph through hard times, so maybe that is why I only received forty.

I was then guided to make them into a small book and have it published. Now, no one was more surprised than me, me write a book, the girl that hardly went to secondary school, who had very poor grammar and spelling, who had no qualifications and no interest in writing or reading books. Was this really happening? It most certainly was. Since then, I have written several books and got gold awards I even became a number one international bestseller on amazon. Gosh, if my teachers could see me now!

Since having my spiritual awakening, I feel honoured to have been given the tools so that I can help beautiful souls just like you who may be emotionally stuck and wanting to find that inner peace to heal just like I did. Writing became my saviour. Whether I write fiction or non-fiction all my books take you on a journey of emotional healing. Now I know why I went to that meditation session, so I could make a difference and to serve you.

I will always be grateful to my friend Felicia for introducing me to a life I never knew even existed. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

In my next blog I will tell you how I created a course and workshop to help you in releasing your thoughts, feelings, and emotions in a positive way through the power of the written word, your written words. But for now, I wish you all a blessed and peaceful day.

When I wrote my first book A Collection of Inspirational Guided Prayers back in 2014 and published in 2015 I never knew how much my life would change. Let me explain.

Before I became an author I had a very successful career as a mobile beauty therapist, it was my passion and I loved helping people to feel good about themselves. I even took on the role as an agony aunt which I never had a problem with, if I could help anyone in any way that made them feel good then I was still doing my job, just in a different way. Some of my elderly clients would make an appointment just so they had someone to talk to, I may have been the only person they had seen that week. To be honest they were my favoutite clients, I know I shouldn't say that but they were. I could see and feel their loneliness, and just by giving them a gentle hand massage and a listening ear I knew that I had made a difference, and this I did for free. It was also a time that I became a voluntary community therapist for an hospice, again just the gentle touch of a hand was all that they needed.

In 2010 a bombshell was dropped on me, I found out I had MS and had to give up my business that I had worked so hard for and also having to step back from my role at the hospice that I loved working with for three years. I was the one now feeling depressed and lonely. What was I going to do?

In late 2013 I went along to a friends meditation session. Not being in the best frame of mind I really didn't know what to expect. Well, all I can say is, that was the day that things completely changed for me, I guess you could say I had a spiritual awakening, I started to refocus on my life and that is when I was introduced to writing by my divine guides. This is another story in itself which I will tell some other time. After writing my first book and doing a book signing in Waterstones (pictured above) I was invited on to my local community radio station Radio Verulam to be interviewed, I had also just finished writing my first fiction. Feeling nervous was an understatement. That interview is something I will never forget. The lovely presenter and now my dear friend Diana Garrett could obviously see something in me that I couldn't. The next thing I knew I was doing the radio presenters training and became her Co Presenter for the next three years, the best three years of my life. I am so blessed and grateful to Diana for believing in me and showing me that there is more to life when you least expect it.

From being a beauty therapist and having one on one sessions with my clients, to one on one sessions as a community therapist, and going solo writing books, radio presenting was way out of my comfort zone. I was never a public speaker I found that too intimidating and here I was speaking to thousands of people, ok, they couldn't see me but I still found it quiet scary. Being part of that team gave me such confidence in myself and I met the most amazing people which led me to other things. So, you see, from adversity came opportunities, opportunities that I would never have dreamed of and a way that I could still help others but just through different channels.

Never give up, and when an opportunity comes your way, take it because you never know where that will lead! Love and blessings Jenny xxx

Today something happened that hurt and upset me!

How could they do this to me?

How could they lie so blatantly?

This person is mean and spiteful!

I am angry, and I want revenge, and I want it now!

They cannot get away with this!

How dare they do that to 'me'!

The above statements could apply to any situation that any of us have gone through in our relationships with others. We have all gone through situations that have left us feeling overwhelmed and stabbed at the core of our being.

When others mistreat us, all our unresolved issues may get triggered and come up to the surface ready for healing.

It can sometimes take us hours, days, weeks, even years to get over the hurt, pain and suffering when we are impacted by another's unkind actions.

I remember a few years ago when my whole world shattered all around me. I was left feeling betrayed, helpless not sure what the future had in store for me.

I kept playing the record of poor me; how could this happen to me and what would become of me.

One day on awakening I realised that my thoughts were the same thoughts I had yesterday, the same thoughts I had last week. In fact, it had been a year, and I was still harbouring those same old thoughts.

We would not hold on to last year's garbage, would we? Yet we hold on to old stinking thinking allowing it to take up valuable space in our mind, where our Soul's vision should be.

I had had it with those smelly old thoughts. I decided that day, that I would throw out the low-frequency thoughts that were lodged in my mind. I would replace them with new beautiful, uplifting ideas that would empower me to create a new life that was more purposeful.

I had my work cut out for me. I would wake up with these thoughts and go to bed with them. I realised that for things to change, I had to let go of these fearful, sad, unproductive thoughts.

Some years ago, I had purchased a personal development CD box set offering conscious breathing teachings; I was ready to embark on that journey.

I would wake up each day my only focus and companion was my breath, the one thing that was mine that no one could take from me. It didn't matter what anyone thought of me, said about me, or what they did to me; the breath was always there ready to empower me.

I began to feel so much better and could feel a calmness within me that nourished me throughout the day. I began to feel hopeful, and things began to change. I found that the old thoughts were taking up less space in my mind.

'When you change the way, you look at things, the things you look at change.'

When people mistreat us, we have the right to feel bad, sad, hurt and even angry for a while. However, at some point, we will be drawn to the stillness within and know that it is time to let go of past hurts and make space for our purpose.

I believe that life allows us to go through challenging situations that break us at the core, leaving us broken open, ready to fill up on our newfound strength. This strength transforms our inner world, creating more self-awareness.

My Soul's wisdom reminded me why I had made the journey to this earth plane. I had come here to learn, grow and serve.

I flooded my mind with other things that empowered me. I found that walking in nature, reading inspirational books, speaking to inspiring people motivated me to move forward and enjoy my evolving life.

I had been attached to my old life and had stopped growing. What I have found to be true is that everyone has a purpose, and our job is to discover our Soul's purpose.

When we stop moving towards our purpose, we feel unfulfilled, lost in our roles. We stop dreaming and growing when we settle for a life without meaning.

We may confuse our roles with our Soul's goals. Our roles are important and have their place, giving structure to our lives. Our Soul's purpose is about our broader perspective, the invisible journey into eternity.

Life woke me up to the unresolved issues that I had been suppressing for so long. I was now aware of my negative thoughts; the emotions I had been suppressing came to the surface with horrible detox symptoms. I had a lot of cleaning up to do, but I was ready to do the work, as I could not live like this anymore.

Life reminds us that when everything is taken away from us, we still have our breath. When you are in the thick of it, you may feel unable to collect your thoughts, but you can choose to take a conscious breath one breath at a time.

The affirmation 'All I need is within me now,' I believe, is our ability to practice conscious breathing to heal our lives.

If we can sit with ourselves and just feel the warmth and power of our breath, we can transform how we think and feel in the moment, which subsequently will heal and transform our lives.

There is the story of the gods who were trying to think of a suitable hiding place to hide the precious treasure from man. One of the god’s suggested that they should hide it at the top of the highest mountain, but another god said no, man is bound to conquer the mountain and find it there. Another god suggested hiding it at the bottom of the sea; but he too was reminded that man would swim to the bottom of the ocean and eventually find it there. More gods came forward with more suggestions of where to hide the treasure, but each time it would be pointed out that man would soon discover the treasure in each of these places.

Eventually, an esteemed wise god, hearing the other gods arguing amongst themselves, said to them, 'hide the treasure within man himself, because man would never think to look within.'

I believe that the hidden treasure in the story is alluding to the power of the breath. We can transform and empower our lives through conscious breathing. I feel that conscious breathing aligns our body, mind and Soul – it is an elixir for life. Each day make conscious breathing part of your daily life. At first, it might seem awkward, but if you stick with it and practice each morning, it will become a way of life.

You have no control over your external life, but you definitely have the power to transform and enjoy your inner life. You must learn to clean up the home of your Soul with the same enthusiasm you have when cleaning your external home.

Throw out the old musty furnishings of fear, self-pity, self-hate, doubt and despair and replace them with joy, happiness and love. Enjoy the lovely inner fragrance of peace that is with you wherever you go.

It is time to move out of the mind’s attic into the beautiful spacious core of your Soul – the untapped treasure within. Pull back the curtains of your smile so that others can see the joy, happiness and love radiating through you as you go about your day.

Today remember to take a breath and smile!
