Celebration… Pain… and more Celebration…


What superb examples of being real, being amongst the people and enjoying a great celebration together… the Royal Family of Holland coming out into the streets year after year to celebrate with all the people the Kings/Queens birthday. Ever since I arrived in Holland in the early 80’s, I have enjoyed going out in the streets to celebrate this day with thousands of happy, smiley, laughing, dancing, singing people. Over the years Holland has made such a big impression on me, it is a country that is open, direct, tolerant, easy going and friendly. The uniqueness and magnificence of each person stands central in life… in this way there is less violence, addiction, teenage pregnancy and illness than most other western countries. So THANKYOU Holland for your wonderful presence in my life.  Here in Benalmadena, Spain we celebrate our life each day… but on Kings day we went all out.


A few days later we are celebrating another birthday… The birth of a new princess of Britain. Welcome dear one… I hope you are ready for your great task of helping to bring Great Britain back to a vibrant nation and more importantly bringing a smile and happiness back to its people. The following question comes to mind… Is it the people that make a country great or is it the country that makes a person great? I know my answer… whats yours?  It is a most important answer… because knowing the answer not only has an impact on each person’s life but will make the difference of how the voting goes in this weeks election in Britain.

…And when IAM not celebrating, I spend a little serious time, feeling into life and what’s happening around me… I feel into the energy, by simply expanding my consciousness. This last week I have been overwhelmed by pain… not particularly my own, although the days leading up to todays full moon has again brought me more accepting, embracing, allowing, releasing, etc etc… but from people who are suffering the invisible pains and one in particular… Fibromyalgia.

I brought my mum over to stay a month with me here in Spain, for her to get away from the cold British weather and her four walls. She has suffered for a few years with fibromyalgia… so I understand a bit about it from her point of few, because people can’t see it and that more than anything infuriates her. My friend Megan at my chronic life journey is writing an illustrated book about the dis-ease to bring more awareness into people’s life. My mum has been pampered for a month, eaten my great healthy food of low carbs and high good fat and has had her negative look on life frowned upon. Arriving back home she feels like she has been given a new lease of life. I’ve told her it’s important to keep up eating good foods and focusing on the good things in life… rather than eating sugar candies and cookies and focusing on how bad she is feeling… no matter the pain she feels.

Now going back to my feeling into pain and in particular Fibromyalgia... here is what information flowed through me. Now… please remember this is only my perspective and truth which your mind will probably think is crazy… but you can allow your heart to resonate with any truth there may be.


Why are more and more people feeling the intensity of pain in their physical bodies now?

Barbara’s answer:
Humankind is coming to the end of a long and hard Human experience . A new energy is now in play (that we have created) to help us open, awaken and expand our consciousness… awareness… perspective. To allow each heart to feel into the truth of our past experience and choose now to live a happy, healthy and abundant life in cooperation with each other.

We can only experience this happy ending, if we choose for it in the present moment. But because we are so stuck in the mind and our long Human experience of conflict, resistance, chaos, duality, patterns, control and pain we deny ourself this freedom.

Our ancestors and ourselves have lived many lives… living the different roles of poorman, richman, gentleman, lady, sickman, goddess, king, vampire, murderer, victim. Numerous roles for us to experience all the Earthy sensations. This long experience is now coming to its end, as we have all called it forth, in answer to our cries for no more suffering, control, greed and violence. Therefore, everything we have ever experienced is coming up and out into the open… even the darkness, our fears and pains that have been hidden away… for recognition before its ultimate release.

The pain and fear that we are experiencing now is not ours… it is the collection of all the roles we’re played… coming to its head and coming out through us…as the last in line. 

The pain is calling our attention… bringing us to a place within ourself and within the moment, where we can be aware that we are so much more than our Human self and experience. For us to recognise the pain for what it is…  old energy that no longer serves us, coming up to be accepted and embraced before its release. We can allow simply through our awareness… our consciousness the pain and fear to take a step back from its long service and be released.


Now it is time to celebrate again… Today is another full moon… helping us further release more of all our yesterdays… all the pain and fear… and prepare ourselves for Humankinds next step… creating and celebrating how we truly desire to live in each moment… Are you ready to celebrate?

Love to all and be brave, because the energy is harsh… just breathe the conscious breath… simply… nothing more to do but be aware and allow the change to naturally happen.

Your Magnificent Self... A Journey to Freedom

My book that IAM self-publishing is taking a little longer than expected to publish… Your Magnificent Self… A Journey to Freedom. It is dedicated to YOU, to inspire hearts to open and expand consciousness for each person to discover their own truth… Pain as I talk about above is one of our body’s ways to inspire us to look deeper into the core of ourself and discover our truth.

IAM paying forward in my own way to Humankind and giving away FREE copies of my E-Book for a while… . If you would like to receive a free copy once it is published, please send me an email to barbara@memymagnificentself.com and I’ll add you to my list…
