Human Beings Can Alter Their Lives
By Altering Their Attitudes Of Mind
Quote Title: William James
Poem: Trina Graves
If there is anything in your life
That you would like to change
What is going on in your mind
Is what you need to re-arrange
For it is the thoughts you think
That always creates your reality
Bound with powerful emotions
You attract everything you see...

Adopt The Pace Of Nature
Her Secret Is Patience
Quote Title: Ralph Waldo Emerson
Poem: Trina Graves
Nature’s secrets are incredibly inspiring and bountiful
Life lessons are learnt that are not taught in school
Walking in Mother Nature, God’s natural Kingdom
With Awareness, will bring you insightful wisdom
Her efflorescence beauty is shown everywhere
Even in the depth of winter when much lies bare
There’s always splendour and miracles to view
When with your Soul Eyes, you choose look through...

Over the past few months I have been totally re-vamping this site and more recently I have re-discovered my love of writing inspirational poetry. One of the things I now want to do is to use quotes for titles and themes of poems, so I thought I'd give myself the challenge of writing poems for these blog entries. This first 'challenge' flowed quite easily, so I'm hoping this new way of doing my blog will inspire me to do it more often!
Flowers Are Words That
Even A Baby Can Understand
Quote Title: Arthur C. Coxe
Poem: Trina Graves
The basis of everything is vibration
In this wonderful world of ours
All the people, all physical objects
All of nature including its flowers
Everything in life we experience
In each and every single day
We identify through our senses
There truly is no other way...

You Create Your Thoughts.
Your Thoughts Create Your Intentions.
And Your Intentions Create Your Reality.
Our thoughts are always being 'thought,' unless we learn through meditation to quieten our incessant thoughts, our minds are constantly giving us thoughts.
The vast majority of these thoughts are habitual; they are the same old thoughts that we began to think when we were children, and unless we reflect on them and do some inner-work on changing them, they will remain in our sub-conscious and persistently dominate our lives.
Being a grandmother has a wonderful advantage in seeing how little children reflect their parents and siblings. I am amazed at how my grandchildren are little carbon copies of those around them, it's so easy to see; in their mannerisms, actions and speech, so it seems obvious to me that their thoughts are being copied too.
We all know babies and young children learn to do everything through imitation. The first milestone in every baby's life that we teach, anticipate and look out for is the first smile. Once we are rewarded with this delight we know that our baby is responding to us and we continually teach all our ways of being human to our precious little ones. But what many people do not realise is that babies and children are.....

Beware Of What You Set Your Heart Upon
For It Shall Surely Be Yours
Ralph Waldo Emerson
This quote all about the Law of Attraction is one that I have known for many years before I'd ever heard of the expression. It is one that has had a great significance throughout my life...
When I was six my dad learned to drive. His driving instructor was very friendly and they chatted about many things including enjoying playing sports. The instructor suggested that my dad joined the cricket team that he played for, and so began many years of our family spending the summer weekends going off to various villages in the Oxfordshire countryside. The men would play their game of cricket while their wives and children either watched the game, played, or went for walks around the villages, having a picnic tea and then after the game going to the village pub. It was a lovely way to spend our weekends together, and shaped in many varied ways, my life......

Married Couples Who Love Each Other
Tell Each Other A Thousand Things Without Talking
The photograph that I used for this quote is of my maternal grandparents, Alfred & Jennie and was taken in the 1950's. Although this quote seems to be about marriage, I would like to focus on what I believe is the most important aspect of the quote: the love for each other.
Regardless of the relationship with another person, when we are in a state of love, especially if that love is unconditional, then we are linked in the strongest way possible - the vibration of love - and no words are necessary.
When we are being and feeling unconditional love, we are totally open to using our intuition and can feel what the other person is emitting through their energy field......
