For anyone who is feeling effing weird at the moment.

Hola my darlinghearts,

I know. I know.

It’s funny energy at the moment right now?

One moment soaring high as a blue winged kite.

The next:

a cacophony of shame, ick, oof & bluck.

It’s energetic bipolar!

The world ashifts beneath our feet.
Some days, all I can do is laugh.
It’s a comedy of errors, and if I wasn’t giggling, I might be lost.

I want you to know.
If you are feeling lost or hurt or sad…
what you need to know is this:

ALL WILL BE WELL.

I was sitting there this afternoon.

Awash in a sea of Uck Bluck,

amazed at how crazy things can be,

and I sat and listened in.

Dear Goddess in me, what do you want me to know?

And when I listened,

I saw that I really wanted to go outside.

And I lit giant incense sticks beside my goddess beneath the avocado tree.

And I prayed for us all

to be alight. to remember we are loved. to feel peace & joy again.

And when I listened,

I made a podcast for you.

Tucked away in our laundry,

speaking what is in my heart & soul.

Telling you what I know is true.

The message you may need to hear right now:

(includes really useful meditation to feel lovely & normal & light again!)

And when I listen,

I walk instead of drive to my scenar therapy appointment.

But I break out in a run

and run the whole way there

barefoot, laughing breathlessly.

*

And when I listen,

I collect flowers on the way back:

hibiscus, wattle, bouganvillea.

Big armfuls filled with tropical flowers.

And I go and decorate our lil town’s statue of Goddess Persephone.

She’s the goddess of flowers & spring,

she needed it ya know?

*

Beautiful heart if you’re feeling a bit lost… I just want you to know it’s all okay. The energy is a bit of a bucking bronco at the moment. Everything will be okay, we are just going through a shift.  Hold tight & be gentle with you dearest.

All will be well.

All is well.

Follow the soft voice inside you…

she’s leading you

to miracles & goodness & joy.

All my love,

P.P.S. Next step?

Tonight, me & my favourite artist helper painted rainbow affirmation rocks…

ready to go join Persephone’s fountain.

It’s guerilla art in the most goddess of ways!



How To Be Joyful (a free poster)

Hola my darlingheart,

SO!

I’ve been wildly going through ye olde ancient computer archives this week… pulling out luscious goodies to go into the PRINTED.REAL.LIFE.BOOK. *And* because I’m awaiting arrival of my Dream Machine – my first pimped-out custom-made MacBook Pro laptop. With enough memory to record podcasts & do video editing & photoshopping (all at once, as I am want to do!) without breaking into sad violin songs. AND it’s got an ANTI!GLARE!SCREEN! so I can camp outside & write & actually be able to see the screen! Revolutionary! I tell you!

Anywaysies.

That was a very long way of saying:

Heyooooo loooook what I found!
Something cute & delicious for youuuuuuuuuuu!

I made this poster way back in the day when I was a public servant. I can’t remember the exact moment it was born, but I’m pretttttttty sure it was in one of those 4 hour long “strategy business plan power point ya ya divisonal outcome” meetings.

I listened VERY carefully and attentively during those enthralling meetings.

(Yes, once upon a time I was not a professional goddess! I was a public servant! I used to joke that my mission was to spread glitter deep into the belly of the beast. Except it wasn’t really a joke. It was just a disguise. Because I had a secret mission. To spread glitter deep into the belly of the beast. Get it? It’s so deep! Like an onion! Layers!)

Wow.

Anyways.

During those meetings, I would make cute posters for myself to cheer myself up. They were also a preventative to help me run screaming from the building with boredom. In that realm, these posters where suuuuuuper useful.

Well, no longer shall this poster be just for me!

Dear Strategy Business Plan PowerPoint Ya Ya Divisional Outcome Meeting,

You were very productive.

Look at this outcome!

A very pretty poster! Released to the wilds of the internet!

Sent to make people happy the world over!

Love forever,
Leonie

The Last 8 Minutes On Earth

My dearest Goddess sister,

What would I tell you if it was my last eight minutes?

What could I possibly tell you

from the very depths of my being

about everything I want you

to hear

to feel

to know?

This is it, baybee.

Filmed with wind whirling & clouds hurtling by.

Turning up,

tear stained,

alive

&

in love with you

& this whole wide world.

All my love,

The World Is Good

Did you know?

Every generation of children gets treated better and better than the last.

I know, I know. I know we beat ourselves up about parenting.

I know we whine about television & how hard everything can be for kids.

And yes, we’re still evolving and learning, and we will continue to.

But the thing that made me sigh a biiiiig exhale of relief?

Knowing that our children are treated better than we were treated. And we were raised more compassionately than our parents were. And our parents were raised more gently than their parents were.

Yes, there are exceptions to the rule. But the HUGE majority is that of love, evolution and healing.

Every generation, we are able to heal even more. Love even more. Take care of our children even more.

And it’s the most incredible thing to witness.

Did you know?

That in Australia, women didn’t get the right to vote until 1902.

That in 2002, women in Bahrain were given the right to vote.

My Great Grandmother was not able to vote. I am.

I love that our world is changing & will continue to. And so quickly!!!

Look at what has happened in the last 100 years!

I really want to high five us right now!

Did you know?

Since Kiva opened its doors six years ago, over $234 million has been lent from ordinary, everyday people to help people in developing countries grow their businesses.

Did you know the repayment rate of those loans is higher than 99% – higher than the repayment rate for banks in the First World!

We are each changing the world. Helping each other.

Right at the earthy-scented ground level.

Did you know?

That when William Shakespeare was born, he was extraordinary. Not because of the fact that he ended up becoming a famous play write – he was extraordinary simply because he survived. In the century he was born, 25% of children died before the age of 5. But in the year he was born? 66% of children died thanks to the plague.

66%. 2 out of every 3 children.

And now, the plague is pretty much wiped out.

Children are safer and healthier than ever before.

HIGH FIVE TO THAT!

Did you know?

There’s a business man in China. I read about him in Fast Company. And he’s kinda hilarious & flashy & loves publicity.

AND at the same time? His mission is to be the biggest philanthropist in the world.

He wants to be the dude he gives away the most money.

That’s some kinda mission!

And so he drives around & hands out red envelopes filled with cash to people who need them.

And he’s trying to get the whole of China to start donating muchos more money.

(And wanna know why? He grew up poor. Some of his siblings starved to death. And so he started working. And he’d earn enough money to pay to go to school. And then earn more so he could pay the tuition for his neighbour’s children.)

I want to pash this man something chronic.

Holy guacamole this world is awesome.

Did you know?

Love grows.

Even when people die. Even when relationships end.

Love?

It never leaves us.

It’s all around us.

And everytime we foget?

It’s like a fish forgetting it is swimming in the sea.

We are swimming in love.

Did you know?

My great aunt was paralysed from polio, and her lover cared for her for all his life?

And that polio – since peaking in the 1940s and 1950s has been eradicated in all but four countries?

Did you know?

My dad lost his youngest brother at birth from what is now a treatable illness?

Thank you, medicine & healing that is constantly evolving!

Did you know?

That when my eldest brother was growing up with cerebral palsy, there were no support groups here in this small town. No respite. And no special education facilities for teenagers – resulting in him staying until primary school until he was 15.

And that now?

There are services out the wazoo. Families with disabilities are supported and helped and have carers assisting them. My mother is one of them.

So much has changed in one generation.

Did you know?

A couple of months ago, I saw a photo of a child on Facebook. A child that was malnourished.

And so I adopted a child in India. And a buffalo in America. And an Aboriginal Healing Centre in Australia.

And it was the funnest night of “shopping” I ever did.

How much fun is that? We get to help other people! And animals! And missions!!!

All at our fingertips!!!

Motherofgawd, this is pretty much the FUNNEST universe possible!!!!

Did you know?

That more & more people & businesses are signing up to the One Percent Foundation?

And it’s just so beautifully easy!

Did you know?

My Grandmother – the one who has been through 2 World Wars, a Great Depression, losing two husbands, two sons & a grandson – she says that everyday is good?

“Well my darling! I woke up this morning and I was still breathing, so I thought:

Today is a GOOOOOOOOD day!!”

I saw her up the street just before. She’s 94 & was shopping & flirting. I offered to drive her back to her house, but she wanted to walk.

She was dressed in white moccasins, startling white tailored skirt, pearls, a soft pink mohair jumper & was accessorised with gigantic pink-framed hipster sunglasses & iridescent dangly shell earrings.

“Granny, you look GORGEOUS! You have the best style in the WORLD!”

“Well my darling! I take after my grand daughter!”

P.S. My Grandmother is not just my grandmother – she’s yours too. She holds the whole world in her strong, bangle-adorned arms & sings

“Youuuuuu are sooooooooo beautiful…. to meeeeee……..”

Did you know?

That you don’t have to worry about the world.

And if there’s something that you’d like to change, you can change it.

You can turn all that excess energy – of fear, of worry, of pain – and channel it into something that transforms. And heals. And blooms.

And it can be ding dang FUN.

True story!!!!

Did you know?

I am in love with the world.

It’s pretty much the best thing ever.

So much hope. SO much possibility. So much transformation and love and kindness.

It is SO good.

And it just gets better and better.

I love love youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu x a million gazillion,
