The card I picked reads:
‘In The Midst Of A Meltdown, I BREATH Through The Discomfort And Come Out The Other Side’
Anytime you feel any pressure or stress it’s always good to pause for a minute and take some long deep breaths in and out! When everything gets too much mentally, physically or both our minds and bodies react and we go into panic mode! The simplest things become a task and we then start to have a ‘meltdown’ we start to suffer… But taking a few minutes to ground yourself and breath will really help!! Try and refocus while letting all the tension come out of you! The situation your in wont change but how you deal and process it definitely will! Also take a few minutes to do something physically to clear your mind like having a cup of tea or read a few pages of your favourite book… ❤️💜💛💚💙 So remember this week just pause and take deep breathes when things overwhelm you and come out stronger on the other side!

It was a long night and day yesterday in the UK with some of us waking up to the horrid news that David Cameron, leader of the Conservative party will be our priminister again for the second term and what’s worse is that there is no coalition this time so it’s pure Tories!! As a young disabled woman living in central London this is really hard news to digest.. I have seen and experienced how much suffering sick and disabled people have gone through in the past 5 years and as a young person I have seen all the services that were helping me live a supported and progressive life vanish before my eyes… We have been treated like the lowest of low for being sick and not being ‘able’ to work! We are living in a country where people automatically believe sick/disabled people are just a drain to society or we are all lazy and just want to live on benifits! How are we MENT to work without support or suitable jobs!
I have been on benefits for maybe 7 years now.. I have never had a ‘real’ job as My illness progressed when I was 16. I would love to work but with my health conditions there is nothing out there right now that I can physically do or earn enough from. Saying all of that I don’t believe that I’m getting money from the government for not doing anything! I am a positive member of society that works as a person for the community! I volunteer as much as I can to local charity’s, I speak to and help as many people as I can about issues they are having! I educate people on my illnesses and disabilities, I am always there for my friends and family and most of all I am there for disabled/sick people! So many disabled/sick people really help and support each other! I think that’s the biggest ‘job’ of all! We shouldn’t be named unemployed benefit receivers we should be called ‘undercover heros’ or ‘expert advisor to the people’ lol no one with an ‘official’ job can do the work we do to support and educate each other! I honestly think if we didn’t communicate with others or just sat in a dark room quiet it would be a very horrible and a hard world out there! We are the experts and I think its about time we get recognised for it!! We need a disabled revolution! We need to stop all this bull shit thinking others have of us! We are not benefit scroungers, we are not useless but WE ARE the soldiers that show everyone that you can do anything you put your mind to! WE ARE the fire that burns through all the bullshit and WE ARE some of the most important and influential people in society!
I know it can be hard to stay positive but we need to! Even with the government we have today we are still lucky to live in a country where people do support us and we are lucky to have free health care and financial help! Allot of countries don’t have this! So we do need to praise the good while recognising the bad but don’t let the government make us disabled! We are amazing people with soo much knowledge and power! So I say fuck all the nagetivity and bullshit and join together to show everyone what we are made of and why we are key to the running of this country!!! We will stick together and rise together and do anything in our power to stop any injustice thrown our way! The next five years are gong to be very interesting! So lets continue to be open and out there! Fight for what you believe in and continue to reach out to everyone you can! We are the force for change and equality! We are the soldiers and most importantly we are the PEOPLE!
So let your voice out in any way you can and fight for what’s right!!!

Not to well this week so sorry in advanced for the short reading! Xxx
‘The moment I begin to celebrate myself and focus on my successes is the moment I begin living’
This weeks positive affirmation card reading 😊 it was a beautiful full moon last night and with that came allot of rain and wind! Something was quite soothing about the weather! (ESP when your not outside in it lol) When there’s a full moon you can soak up its energy and really start focusing on you! If you live in the UK, tomorrow is finally Election Day! It can be a stressful time and all we hear about is what the parties can do for us and their ideas on how we should live but the truth is we have to look at ourselves and ask what can I do for me! We are all beautiful beings and deep down we know what we need and want! But we often push our feelings and thoughts aside to focus on other things! It’s time to #pause and look at all the beauty inside you and start recognising all the amazing things you do and can do! Start focusing on YOU! Make yourself #proud by doing the things you want to do! Stand up for what you believe in and be the best you out there cause you are the only one who can do that! Once you are true to yourself and celebrate the light that shines out of you only then will you start living with confidence and #soul, YOUR SOUL!! We can be the change in any situation it all depends on how much you believe in it and yourself!!
Love and Light to you all xxxx
Sorry for the Very late post, my hay-fever was Soo crazy he past few days! Iv only stopped sneezing now! Had such a busy day on Monday so yesterday I just wanted to crash out!
For those who follow me on Instagram I Picked a card for this weeks Positive Affirmation Reading on Tuesday morning and wrote a short reading there but was too tiered to post on here so hope you understand :-)
This weeks card is..
‘I Am Not The Victim; I Am The Lighthouse!’
I didn’t really get this card when I first read it! I even naughtily shuffled the deck again and re picked but I was still drawn to this card and randomly managed to pick it up again lol law of attraction lol
I began to stare at this card! I ignored the words and just focused of the beautiful colours. As I closed my eyes the bright red slowly turned into Orange and yellow! I could feel the warmth of the colours wash over me. Then I could see little flashes like a camera flash but it wasn’t white! The flashes were purple and blue! It was Soo nice! I just felt so happy and relaxed! These feelings were so strong then I looked at the words on the card and immediately thought this is how I will feel if I become this beacon of light! I also realised if I surround myself with people who project this light I will still have these wonderful feelings even if my light is dimmed or when I’m having a bad day..
Victim is a very strong word! When you think about being a victim you automatically think about things like being a victim of bullying or a victim of abuse etc… But in some situations we can make ourselves victims of our minds. We do this by starting to focus on something that hurt us and not letting go of it! I used to do this allot and still do…
Say someone pushes into you on the street, drops your coffee but they keep walking, don’t apologise and they just ignore you completely. Most of us would automatically feel upset, hurt or angry about what has happened. We can get quite upset and start winding your self up about it but there is another way to think about it! This card is reminding you to be of Light! Think of all the other reasons someone could have bumped into you.. They could have had so many things going on in their head that their mind was completely somewhere else or they were running late for an important appointment and didn’t even realise what they did… Being of light is about being positive and wanting to share good and loving vibes into the universe! It’s to project a pure energy that attracts positivity without you needing to do anything. Light is love and Love is what we all need! Last week we learnt to love ourselves and be open to receiving love and this week we are now projecting love and Light!
So this week if someone hurts you try and resolve it in your mind with positive thinking even if they were totally in the wrong send positive light to them! By you doing that you will shine so brightly and wash away any negative thoughts and feelings!! When you become the ‘lighthouse’ good things will come to you and you will also attract others whom you can guide with your light😊

Peace and Love xxx
Its Soo sunny today 😊! I woke up at 9am but lets not get that confused with actually getting out of bed lol! I was still in bed at 12pm stretching and waking my body up! I felt like playing Drakes latest album to wake up to today! It’s getting me really excited for wireless festival!
I have to go to the dentist today to get my mouth guard! I’m also taking grandma to the hospital to pick up her new hearing aids! Hopefully her hearing will be improved and she will be able to be herself again!
Ok so it’s time for this weeks inspirational affirmation!
After praying and also sitting in the sun on my bed I picked this weeks card 😊
‘I Am Ready To Recieve Love’
This card couldn’t come at a better time!! Summer is starting and we want to get out and about! We want to be able to sit on a park bench so the sun hits our skin or we want to try and be more active because we became hermits during winter! Allot of us tend to find winter really hard and lose allot of love and care for ourselves because we unconsciously close up to love!
Being ready to give love is quite easy! Most of us do loving things with out blinking an eye! Complimenting somone is loving, smiling at a stranger is loving, buying your parents a gift is loving, making food for your friends is loving etc… But sometimes we are not READY to Recieve love because we feel bad! And when you have a chronic illness being ready to accept love on top of physical/mental support can seem over baring or we feel like people do so much For us already that we forget we need love just as much as everything else.
Should I let you in on a secret? We ARE READY for love! We were all born ready! From the moment we were created we grew because of love! We just need to accept it as one of the most natural things that can happen to us! So are you ready? – ‘Yes we were BORN READY!’
Receive is an amazing word! Sometimes we get the word confused with taking! To receive is to accept what is coming to you but with no ill or insecure feeling afterwords! When we receive our bodies and souls will react! Receiving means we are open to obsorbing what is being presented to us, and in this case it’s love!
Love comes in many forms and to receive it is to accept it! We have established that we are ready for love and that receiving it is as important as giving love! I know as a spoonie I sometimes feel like I don’t need it and I need stregth instead so i can keep strong! But I got it all wrong! Love comes to me in all forms and wether it’s from a friend hugging me or the checkout guy in Tesco helping me pack my bags! It’s it continually being presented to me and I learnt that when I accept the loving actions presented to me I automatically grew stronger!
So this week make sure you tell yourself
‘I Am Ready To Recieve Love’
Also keep an eye out for All the loving things that come your way this week and write them down! I bet you will be surprised how many things come up 😊
The song that played in my head when I picked this card was:

Today i have allot of pain 👎 so just been in bed most of the day! On a flare up day I like to catch up on reading, I listen to music and meditate (trying not to over medicate). I do anything to distract me from pain!
If you follow me on Instagram you will know that I use Angel Oracle cards to help me connect and communicate with my angels! The aim is always love and positivity, that’s why I love them! It’s the same idea as tarot cards but angel cards feel right for me! The cards I used today are from Doreen Virtue! She’s an amazing lady and I would highly recommend going to her website and checking her out 😊
This is the front of the box, its such a pretty box! You get a booklet inside with information about each card and also an introduction about using the cards and how you can get the most from them! You also get 44 cards in the deck! They are illustrated sooo beautifully and really speak to you!
So an hour ago I decided to do an angel reading for my followers… Remember this is just about love and positivity 😊 so I did my prayers and started meditating I then asked my angels to come around!
So I asked them who will be guiding us this month! And I picked Omega!
As Soon as I saw this card I felt this gush of empowerment flow through my body! The queen song ‘I want to break free’ started playing in my ears and I forgot about my pain and felt like moving around :-)
This card reads
“Victory! Your desire is comming to fruition. Keep up the good work!”
Everyone has things they want in life and depending on the day, week, month or years our needs will change! You can get allot of guidance from this card and as this is our first reading together I believe omega turned up to let us know that we’re doing the right thing! When you have a chronic illness it can be hard to go for the things we want because our health can get in the way! But this month omega is telling us loud and clear that we can do what ever we want as long as we keep at it! We have to make the choice to be happy! Omega is a healer too and knows the smallest things to others can be the biggest victory to us! He wants us to know that all our strength comes from within us and he’s by us giving us the love to accomplish what we want! Our bodies can let us down at times and like me today, all you want to do is sleep through the pain but you end up feeling guilty for not being ‘active’
Well not anymore! We have to accept the days like this but also find a purpose on these days so we don’t feel bad about it! The flare up days can give us a day to paint our nails, or read a book, catch up with friends/family, spend time thinking of positive thoughts, play some music, do some light yoga/stretches, meditate, watch a film etc…
We create what’s normal and active for us! Do everything to better yourself and others! And if anyone dares to call you lazy just smile and know that you are Victorious like Omega and people must be blind if they can’t see our strong wings, long mane and magical healing unicorn horn 😜 lol
This is the month to keep going and like Freddie Mercury it is the time to sing ‘I Want Break Free’ and really mean it!

I had a long ass day at the #Hosp today! Appointment ended up being nearly 2 hours long because of my #Asthma…. Found out there’s something wrong with my vocal cords and need to get a CT of my lungs… Been put on steroids which I hate cause it kills my joints! I will try but will come off it it hurts to much! Seriously thinking not to start the steroids though!! Been given #codeine to take on top of my #amitriptyline to help my sleep with the coughing and rib sublex or dislocate! But I seriously doubt it will help! I hate codeine as I used to be pumped up with it! But it’s a low dose so will give it ago for three weeks only!…. Got other Meds to but chemist was out of stock… But had a lovely evening Soo tiered now Gonna watch TV and crash night xxx 😊
