Mental Health Mantra 22/365
I may have written in earlier journal posts, I often see what message comes through as I'm creating the piece. Today it zoomed through like Speedy Gonzales.
Let the green stuff be the guide.
This is a huge message for me because I have felt quite hemmed in, isolated, not getting enough green stuff.
Green stuff is very wide ranging and it means all sorts of things to me, and I am sure it will mean lots of other things for you too.
Green stuff - obviously green stuff means grass, nature, trees, mountains. It also means houseplants, potting plants, soil (ok not exactly green but helping the green stuff to grow.) I'm a huge fan of pottering outside, gardening, clipping back.
Green stuff also means green veg. kale, broccoli, sprouts, leeks, green apples, celery cucumber, all helping to reduce inflammation and provide me with a high dose of nutrients in a hit.
Whether I'm out in the green stuff, eating the green stuff or tidying up the green stuff, for instance houseplants, or watering them, making them feel nice, my frequency barometer shifts up a notch, I can raise my frequency level and feel a high vibe. It may not last long because life throws us curve balls. The point is, I can let the green stuff be the guide and see where it leads me.
The colour green is hugely calming too, whether that be a green face mask, painting with a green colour pallet, green nail varnish, green eyeshadow... you get the gist.
This weekend I am connecting to the green stuff.
Wake up and make up to a green smoothie
Organise, water and tidy the houseplants,
Tidy up my orchids / they need some more bark. (I have found my new love of orchids for 5 years I have kept returning year after year.)
Visit some new green stuff that I haven't been to yet.
Paint some green pallet
Dig out some green eyeshadow/ I think I have turquoise but it's near enough.
Let the green stuff be the guide.
Keep shining folks, know that your light energy is always there shining bright.
Despite the knocks.
You Got This!

Mental Health Mantra 12/365
Going through a stressful time, I sometimes forget to reach for the tools. For instance, when I'm in a high anxious time, it goes out of my head that actually, washing my hair and taking a shower can shift the energy for me. Or, tidying my workspace, or hoovering up, putting on some music and dancing, whilst kicking the ball with the dogs #winwin. There are other tools in here too, things like taking 10 mins twice a day to sit in contemplation, boost my immunity with Vogel's Echinacea Throat Spray and high dose of Vitamin D3, or even Rescue Remedy emergency essence.
I have to create a reminder of what's in my healing toolkit. There are lots of ways to rebalance me in that space. I have to know where to turn and remember to turn there.
This is a reminder, for me and maybe for you too? ; > )
I have committed to finishing and publishing my book Rebalance Me this year. This will outline my tools so that you can create your own healing toolkit and your daily prescription.
Reach for the tools ps. you already have them.
Keep shining sunbeams. Trust your intuitive intelligence.
Mental Health Mantra 10/365
If there's one thing that I have had to practice, daily, is trying not to worry about future.
There are many things externally outside of my control.
We are all here in our human journey to learn from whatever is in front of us. I have had a plethora thrown at me in particular these last 16 months, and somehow I have to bring myself back to not being panicked and worried because in fact that only serves the narrative and not my own sense of self.
It's a daily challenge and I really am not getting it right all the time.
Yet as I always say, I wake up, and today I said to myself ' Start from where you are today, Jules."
Choosing my Mantra for Every Day is helping to focus for that day, in my quiet time and going inwards.I am seeing them as Mental Health Mantras :)
I have been studying embodiment with Damien Wynne and he confirms what I have known within me for my entire life "I have an affect on the field," the field of conscious beings and consciousness, therefore my role now in this Age of Aquarius is to work on my own shadow side and heal my own wounds, this is my way of affecting the greater field, having an affect on the greater web of conscious beings >>>> out there.
This may resonate with you, some, nothing, or all of it.
Wherever you are right now, today. Start from there.
Hope you're enjoying these Mantras for Every Day, I am pleased that I have done 10 days :) 355 to go !
Keep shining your light starseeds and know you are intuitive.
Sending love x

Mental Health Mantra 6/365
Today has been a day when I could easily have stayed under neath the duvet.
What with Parliament voting on lockdown here in England with only 16 against make my heart hurt for so many people who are struggling, me included. I generally have pretty good flexible mental health, and yet, this is a real challenge.
And yet, I stay hope full. I know there is something very deep going on here, that will come out in the fullness of time. There is a methodology happening behind the scenes. I keep saying this to myself.
Stay Hope Full.
Stay Hope Full.
Stay Hope Full.
I hope that you're doing okay out there.
Keep shining and trusting your intuitive intelligence.

Mental Health Mantra 2/365
Sometimes I can get caught up in moment of apprehension, I go down that rabbit hole and eat myself down further, until I remember, that I have to somehow shift the focus and move to do something else.
Shift the focus is often connected to doing something for someone else but it can easily also be;-
1. take a shower
2. walk my dogs
3. stick on some White Light by George Michael and dance.
4. call one of my friends to connect.
5. play The Glad Game and write down all my gratitudes in that moment.
6. sit in stillness and breathe (I know that sounds like a tad twee but it really works for me).
That's just a wee example but I find if I have a list of things that can shift my focus, it is my go-to and it helps. Often it's just an intuitive nudge that I need to get me out of the rabbit hole moment.
I am really grateful that I was attuned to Reiki 18 years ago, it is in fact a tool that never leaves me, and I can sit doing a self healing if all things are not going well. If there was one thing I wished everyone had was level one Reiki attunement as you are taught how to lay hands on yourself and do a self healing #priceless (check out my Self soothing Affirmantra Meditation Video with 9 hand positions that you can do for yourself, I'll write more about that in another post.)
Today the Muse Mantra for me and for you is 'Shift Your Focus.'
My nudge to you, is to take a moment and shift your focus. Whatever that means to you.
Your intuitive self will know what that means.
Sending oodles of real time hugs to you
Keep shining your light and trust your intuitive intelligence.
"calm your mind, soothe your soul"
I was commissioned to draw Barry's Muse Mantra. (What's a Muse Mantra, I hear you ask?! - you can find out here.)
Receiving Reiki is relaxing, soothing, calming and wonderful for releasing stress. Add to this your own Muse Mantra to anchor and what you get .... is truly magical. (if you're new here, watch this short video that explains Muse Mantras.)
I love that men are stepping forward and I would love to encourage you to gift this healing to a male in your life.
Barry wrote me this below and I feel it's written for you. Thank you Dear Man. Very blessed to have met you.
When I first asked Julia if I could participate in the process of producing my Healing Muse Portrait I wasn't sure what it meant for me.
As the process began and Julia updated me, something changed.
I have been on my path many years now and sometimes we come to a crossroads or lose sight of what we first set out to do.
I had reached this place but I began to feel a sense of warmth and change.
My mind began to clear and I was able to see my vision again.
At that time I was not sure where the process was up to.
It's only now that I came to understand that the woven healing in my portrait was taking place.
When I first viewed the first images, I felt that warmth, that healing washing over me.
It was so powerful I had to take several hours to take it all in.
After a while I was able to send my feelings to Julia. We had connected in such a healing way.
I would encourage all people, more men especially, to take part in this process.
Open your heart and soul to the total experience.
Feel the healing begin and let it flow through you.
Relax your thoughts and be accepting of the love and healing that will open up your mind and heart.
The art is the bonus you get to keep, to remind you of your journey, to look at and remind yourself of the light and power you possess.
Julia will help you discover it.
I also created a video of the entire drawing from start to finish.
