LOVE TIP – Saturday 19th May, 2012 

Hellooooooooooo Lovelies all over the world,

Friends are so special in the way they lift us up and encourage, energize and enthuse us.....how they seem to 'be programmed' to drop by just when we need them..... either in the physical or by phoning us or by all the other wonderful means we have now with technology - texts, emails, Facebook messages and links, comments on blogs, Pinterest....and oodles of other mediums......

And so it was for me with my friend Hilary starting my day with her post on Facebook  this morning sending a link to this special gift -

It's now about 5 hours later and the music is still in the background in my mind.....Wow thinks I, how important it is to have a selection of pieces of music/songs on our iTunes or wherever we play our music j-u-s-t simply b-e-c-a-u-s-e!........  AND also following on from my last post it's another way to inspire us when we are stuck/overwhelmed/despairing/off-track....

The lovely Susan sweetums included dancing to LOUD music in her comment to that same post as did gorgeous Hilary....all you lovely Comment-ers are helping me to compile a list of what to do when we are stuck/overwhelmed/despairing/off-track...please keep them coming.......

So another thing I am adding to that list is looking at and listening to inspiring YouTube Videos....just going back through the blog you will find plenty of mine. It has just occurred to me that I need to add inspiring Videos as a Category so that they are easy to find...... Just did it. inspiring Videos Category added. I'll go back through the posts next week and add those posts with a video to the category.

Question for you: What Music, Songs, and Videos inspire, enthuse, energize, revitalize, rejuvenate and motivate you AND especially which ones when you are stuck/ bogged-down/overwhelmed /off-track / despairing/…… Feeling helpless/ hopeless/ like giving up/ weighed down……….♥

MIRRORING PRACTICE: Share your responses with another and have them ♥MIRROR you for a minimum of 5 minutes and then swap, or write about it in your journal. Please share the links to your favourites in the comments below.

To me what these folks in the video are doing is a Random Act of Kindness or as well I would call it a Random Act of Art& Kindness - a RAAK! 

I am giving a Big Shout Out of Gratitude to all the musicians in the world. How much JOY and Delight and Nourishment and Healing you bring to so many.....

There are many musicians that I LOVE who nourish & fill my soul. The very beautiful Chloe Goodchild is one of them.  Please visit http://www.thenakedvoice.com to find out more about the music and work of Chloe and The Naked Voice...For those of you in London where she is based, or Dublin where she visits regularly, if you can catch any of her live concerts or trainings it would be amazing. She’s truly a gorgeous spirit! Incredibly healing. We spent 5 days singing with her up at the Hollyhock Retreat Centre in British Columbia a couple of years ago. We will make a trip to England one day just to do some more work with her.....Enjoy her chant Om Tara.

Woman of the wisdom tree
Goddess of humanity
Singing of the unity we long for
Mother of Eternity
Naked in her mystery
Singing of the unity we long for
Fierce and gentle, wild and free
Simple in her majesty
Dancing in the unity we long for

The way I see it doing whatever we need to do to be happy and LOVE-ing and kind isn't really optional either for ourselves or to the people around us........Quoting Lynne McTaggart:  

"Few of us are conscious enough to recognize how contagious our thoughts are and how deeply they affect others. After all, your thoughts are affecting everything and everybody at every moment.

For instance, did you know that your negative thinking affects the major organs of those you associate with — even their ability to fight disease♥ Or that when you are unhappy (even without showing it), you are unconsciously affecting everyone with whom you come into contact and in turn their entire network of contacts — for the worst♥"

♥♥•*¨*•.¸¸♥May your day be full of precious sounds and melodies, JOY-fully, Susie

"Begin today.
Declare out loud to the universe that you are willing to let go of struggle and eager to learn through joy." ~ ♥Sarah Ban Breathnach
