Swans & Sun

I have taken to walking in the early morning hours to take in all of Natures delights and preform my Japa meditation in my sacred space.

I have to add that for years I would also do this walk, however it was more the walk of shame, as I staggered home filled with guilt and alcohol. If you have ever wondered why people who have been in addiction take to Spirituality like a Swan to water, it is because we just know what it’s like to be on the other side of beauty and compassion.

This morning as I took my walk with delight and expectation as to what God had in store for me today. I stood almost memorized at the sight before my eyes. Three of the most beautiful Swans gliding along the River, followed by the biggest Heron I have ever seen wings aloft flying above.

I just thought to myself that God was showing me a life lesson. As we glide through life, allow it to be gracefully. Allow the flow of the stream of life to take us where our purpose lies, providing us with whatever we need. Throwing caution to the wind as we take flight in our own lives, with a deep knowing that all is well.

When we relax into the knowing that we have surpassed all of our worst days and give thanks to ourselves for making it thus far. Embracing all of our past and living from that special place, where Angel’s, just like those swans wrap their gentle wings around you, whispering “I’ve got you!”


There are no accidents in this Universe. I truly believe that God placed me on that ward to truly understand the meaning of love and compassion. That day changed my life. I will always remember those ladies on their last days and live my life to the fullest. Today I welcome peace and love in my life and that is all there is. We are given situations for reasons. Know that you have survived all of your worst days. Do not worry as this will work out for you and I assure you there is a Blessing in this for you. In fact you..yes you are in my prayers today. Be steadfast in your peace and the world will unfold like a lotus flower for you!! #compassion #love #thursdaythoughts #reels


So where have I been? I retreated deep into my meditation and Spirituality in my countryside home. I have never felt more at peace and serene. Inspiration has been flooding through me. 3 books in the works and more to come. I want the entire world to feel how I do. Remember I was once was lost..(addiction, abuse, homeless) but now I am truly found and if only the world would take the time to meditate and be at peace..the world would be a very different place. Look inward my friends, for the Divine is waiting to answer your prayers. Poem by; Vivienne Clifford (a.k.a..Wide Awake Pretty Girl) #poetry #spirituality #inspiredaction #reels


Journey to Joy

It’s not how you finish the journey but how you handle the journey.
This life will throw your perspective right back  to you. The world we live in is actually an individual reflection of your conscious mind.
Now it’s called a journey for a reason, particularly my Spiritual journey.
My journey of self realisation happened when I was in Treatment getting clean. The amount of Spiritual occurrences during my time in Treatment were insurmountable but it wasn’t until I was at home with technology for the first time in months, I learned what all of these things meant. One day whilst sitting in my back garden I seen the most stunning dragonfly, that seemed to dance around me. One hour later as I sat at my laptop wondering what all this meant and just like that a series of synchronised events and my Spiritual journey began.
When I hear it’s a cruel world or life isn’t fair, I simply remember all I’ve been through and how I survived 100% of my bad days. Let me explain..
Homelessness, drug addiction, depression, suicide attempts are just a few of the events that almost broke me but didn’t. In fact i say Thank You to all of my struggles as i do my happiness because no matter what the event, you’re going to learn something from it.
Tomorrow I bury my beautiful Daddy and there are so many things I am grateful for to have such a Father. So yes at times events will happen that may or may not throw you but just pause for a minute, meditate and think how do I want to handle this. It is such a wonderful way to live and in my opinion it’s a wonderful world. How do you see your world?
