It’s a New Dawn, It’s a New Day…….

………It’s a new life, For me, And I’m feeling good………love that song! And Nina Simone.

It means something more to me now that it has done in the past. Since I discovered that “feeling good” is the basis of creativity and living the life of your dreams. Let’s face it, it’s all pointless if it doesn’t make you feel better. Feeling better is the basis of everything we do. And it can all be attributed to the vibration we are giving out. When we activate a vibration of something that pleases us we automatically feel better and attract more of the same. The trick is learning how to be self-aware enough in the moment to do it deliberately and veer away from feeling something we don’t want, which, by its very nature is attracting what we don’t want…..more feeling of the same way for starters.

It’s amazing the things that make people feel better. I heard a friend say today that picking up litter off the street and putting it in the bin made him feel better. One thing that does it every time for me and a lot of others is walking in nature. I went walking today in Dalgan Park near Navan, a few miles up the road from where I live. It’s a large retreat house and headquarters of the Columban Missionaries order. There is also a large farm on the complex. It never ceases to amaze me, the variety of trees, shrubs, wild flowers and indeed wildlife that exists there. I always get a sense of peace, tranquility and love when I walk the forest and nature walks there. I suppose I feel closer to the spiritual nature of everything.  I’ve come through a rough couple of weeks and really needed it today. It helped me with some major decisions I need to make very soon. Decisions centering around career and money. You know that feeling when something is wrong but you have to do it anyway? Or at least you think you have to. Well, walking in nature for me is a creative process that always and every time helps me come to terms with acceptance of the things I can’t change, and helps me find courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference… quote a phrase.

I am now facing into a new week with just a little trepidation, instead of the abject fear and desperation I felt not long ago. It is time to start putting all I’ve learned from Andy Shaw, Abraham-Hicks, Eckhart Tolle, my wife, my kids and grand-kids and my good friends. I would like to re-state my gratitude to the universe for this wonderful life. I made this video below some time back as an exercise in gratitude. When I look at it today I feel even more grateful. Onwards and upwards.

Until Next Time
