I always pass by these plants, in which my mother calls them blood of Jesus flowers. However, after some research I know for sure that’s not the appropriate name. The reason I’m sharing this information is because I had an awakening moment. These flowers are succulents. I noticed several had been pulled out the bunch and scattered on the ground here and there. Well needless to say, these plants thrived. They took up root and begin to flourish on there own. Most plants die in the same scenario. I found it fascinating. Though something seemingly tragic had happened, to them it was nothing more than an opportunity for a new beginning and creation. Lao Tzu said “When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.” This flower embodies that quote to me. It didn’t choose to be separated, yet it accepted it and thrived. It created a new identity. We too, should be as this flower. Why hold onto an old identity or way of thinking when growth,new possibilities and ultimately adventure awaits us? Accept the things in which you cannot change. Go with the flow of life. You never see a tree crying because it’s raining. Instead the tree embraces whatever comes because it know’s that a new season will come. Life is evolution. We are in constant change. Our problems come because we fear the very changes that could open new and wonderful opportunities to us. So this post is about acceptance, and awareness. Be as a succulent, embrace the new and unknown. Enjoy the journey!!

Love and Blessings,


Day of the Lord


I absolutely love this. It truly brought tears to my eyes.

New Heaven on Earth!


Jesus showed humanity what being a human being was supposed to look like. The message has been distorted and degraded as the way to get to heaven after one dies through a set of moral prerogatives. This is not what Jesus showed me! Everything is possible today in this very moment if you believe it is: perfect health, perfect peace, perfect love and fullness of joy!

Jesus said, “Come to Me and I will give you rest.” The key is to Come directly to the Living One; to know God intimately and directly! The way is waking up to the realization that the Living One is in me and I am in the Living One! Rise in consciousness to the vibration of Christ and enter Rest!!! It is the spacious peace that is present and palpable in all we do. It is the expanded awareness of empty-fullness; the silence and…

Spicy Carrot and Peanut Soup with Coconut Milk


Looks so yummy.



It started to feel a little autumnal this morning and it was slightly chilly indoors, making me want to eat something warming. This soup has Asian influences but also reminds me of Africa where lots of peanuts are grown. This could be made with pumpkin, butternut squash or sweet potato, all of which would be delicious. As this is a blended soup, you do not have the chop the ingredients small and this saves on preparation time. I used pearl barley to thicken this but you could add red split lentils instead.

Preparation time 10 minutes
Cooking time 30 minutes

3 medium carrot coarsely chopped
Two large shallots coarsely chopped
A clove of garlic chopped
750ml of boiling water
Two vegetable stock cubes
A large handful of pearl barley
100ml coconut milk

A handful of fresh coriander chopped
Half a teaspoon of…
