Are You Celebrating Your Life Today?

I Am So Happy I Am Alive!


July 16th was a special day for me. It was the day last year that I found myself in hospital with a kidney failure. This was an out of the blue event and quite scary as I had almost, well really no kidney function, I could have died. I apparently was told by the renal specialist on that morning that only 25% of people recover from what was then labelled Glomerulonephritis and has since been given the wonderful label of Anca Negative Vasculitis.  Des told me I said well I’ll be one of the 25% and then put my focus on meditating my way to health and getting home. As well as using the law of attraction. One year on my life has changed and so have I:

  • I have become a very patient person, patience was not one of my virtues!
  • I have  changed my diet and now eat a high alkaline diet (80/20) a side benefit of this has been a 10 kilo ( 22 pounds) loss
  • I have to ask for help- this has not been an easy  for independent Suzie.
  • I am a softer person- so my friends tell me
  • I live so much more from my heart
  • I know love is such a powerful healing force
  • I trust my intuition so much more
  • I know I can heal my body
  • I am so much more accepting

My blood tests last week showed  my kidney function was at 81 on GFR . Back in August last year I been told by the specialist that the best I could hope for was 69. I believe that  my kidneys are healed and I feel so blessed that I did not need ongoing dialysis much less a transplant and that I am alive.

So on 16th July thus year I spent the day celebrating  being alive. I have Joy Holland from Facets of Joy to thank for asking me, when we were talking on Skype last Saturday, how was I going to celebrate. I hadn’t thought of celebrating this milestone. I said to Joy that  the sun shining would make my day. We had had a week or more of rain and I was missing my beach walk and my daily Vitamin D hit. So this is how did I celebrate:



  • I manifested the sun and went walking on the beach first thing in the morning,
  • after a sleep in,
  • a meditation and journaling
  • I drew the Energy Healing Card from Doreen Goddess Guidance Oracle Cards
  • I started a new journal
  • I talked with friends in USA on skype,
  • I spent time  in the sun reading A Seed of Love by Cheryl Lee Harnish
  • I had an afternoon nap
  • I painted a new cover for a journal I started that day
  • I had yummy fresh juice with barley and maca powder (good for my bones)
  • I had a healthy and very tasty baked vegetable dinner

How are you celebrating your life today?

Quantum Healing Helps Release My Back Pain


Quantum healing is healing the bodymind from a quantum level. That means from a level which is not manifest at a sensory level. Our bodies ultimately are fields of information, intelligence and energy – Deepak Chopra

Three weeks ago I was invited by my friend Amy to attend a day on Quantum Healing. Initially my reaction was i don’t need any new forms of healing, I already had my own program on my path to wellness. During the day I kept thinking about it so I decided to do a meditation and then use my crystal pendulum to make a decision. The answer was yes so I went along and to my surprise i discovered a simple way to relieve the back pain I was experiencing. I was happy. (more…)

Painting Through the Pain: Healing Through Art

“Creativity opens the door to the healing pathway”~ Suzie Cheel

On Monday afternoon I decided to head from the bed to my studio and paint through the pain I was feeling in my back and ribs. I had a white piece of paper on the table and was drawn to the watercolour crayons. I noticed that I chose reds, oranges and yellows – the 3 lower chakra colors- BaseSacral and Solar. The strokes on the paper were firm and flowed from my hand varying from strong straight strokes to circular motions.  I felt like I was releasing both fear and anger.


“Art washes from the soul the dust of everyday life.” ~ Pablo Picasso

I then used water to wash over the crayon and felt a sense of peace as the colours blended together, the dynamics of the image above merging into a meditation. I then left the painting to dry. (more…)

Painting Out The Pain

Painting opens my heart to joy and frees my body of the pain Suzie Cheel


 The past few weeks I have been waking up with pain where I have my crush fracture and I usually start the day with meditation and EFT. One morning I heard the inner voice suggest :Why not paint out the pain?.

That morning I headed to my studio and was drawn to the red watercolor crayons which then became the background layer for the painting above. I was feeling a little angry if you are wondering about the black shape that now looks like a bomb to me. Sometimes I am a bit like a bomb ready to explode especially when I was cursing the prednisolone –although my friend Ellie Walsh has helped me make peace with the drugs, well almost 🙂 After completing this painting I did feel some relief and headed off to the beach for a walk and a swim.

The next morning I heard the same message, Why not paint out the pain? and  headed to the studio and allowed the colors to choose me. I was quite surprised when the heart below appeared. I then felt a sense of joy and brightness as well as surprise. I conscious that while I was painting I did not notice or feel any pain.Paint-out-the-pain

The next day I followed my intuition and again headed to the studio to paint something, this time something quite different. As my friend Joy wrote recently to me : “I observe your journey right now, as your body speaks to you, your heart says yes please to life and continues to create these masterpieces that some don’t create at all….” This was one of those “masterpieces” – not a word I would normally use :). I was following my intuition and trusting. I love this painting below and the many complexities I can see in the painting, I love the colors and on the right I can see the pain path moving out.

Painting out the pain

The pain did return later in the day. I usually relieve this with a heat pack and an Digital Therapy Machine I found at a local market.  I am not taking any pain killers as I found they had limited effect and made me sleepy.

Today I have for the first time in weeks woken up with no pain at my T6 vertebra or in my arm. I am doing arm and spine building exercises, following the Save Our Bones program by Vivian Goldschmidt for my Osteoporosis and some energy medicine from Donna Eden, I listened to her talking with Jessica Ortner recently on the Tapping World Summit 2012.

Can Your Creativity Be A Healing Force?

Creativity“Creativity is the door that opens my heart and listens to my soul’s whispers” – Suzie Cheel

My creativity has become a daily part of my self-love healing process. My current form of creativity is my intuitive painting. I painted several series since the universe gave me a GIANT wake up call back in July last year. The major one of these was The Intuitive Heart Series where I have painted and drawn 45 hearts and I am now in the process of writing a message to go with each heart.This will become a book and a set of cardsthat you can draw daily inspiration from. Then I created a left handed series after fracturing my humerus in January- another wake up call from the universe 🙂

Last week I created a new Creative Wellness Journal and most days I paint when I first get up, after doing a meditation. I never have a plan, I walk into my studio and allow myself to be drawn to a color and then I am guided to either start with paint or to use watercolor or oil crayons and start with a drawing. I always have my brushes at hand along with many  tools, found objects  I collect. Sometimes I find what I have painted is in sync with something a friend might have written on a blog post or shared on facebook. Below is the cover of my current journal. I usually set an intent to give my journals a cover before I start a new journal. Here I have taken one of my rainbow paintings and over painted the words and added in my photo

Creative Healing Journal

I like having my paintings in one place in the journal rather than individual sheets of paper. these are often scattered around the studio:)   Sometimes I might write and collage the pages, so far I have still been writing in another journal. Writing this gave me the idea to sit with the painting after I have finished it and listen for my soul’s whispers. Who know this maybe another series. 🙂

The Power of Intention


“You are what your deepest desire is.
As your desire is, so is your intention.
As your intention is, so is your will.
As your will is, so is your deed.
As your deed is, so is your destiny.”

~ Upanishads

Do you believe in the power of intention?

It has been said that INTENTION is the gateway to your spiritual journey.

Late in January Nicole Cody from Cauldrons and Cupcakes asked me if would like to join in her Heart Centred Week where Nicole was going to provide a week of exercises to open one’s Heart Chakra. That morning I had painted with my left hand the first of 7 Heart Chakra paintings. You can see the paintings here.

There was also a special heart chakra healing necklace that one lucky reader of the blog who left a comment could win.  I did put out the intention when I first left a comment that this would enhance both the healing of my arm, my kidney issue and be putting The Law of Attraction into Action.

This morning I put out the intention to be sling free and driving………..

What Intention have you manifested recently

Moving Forward With Joy and Love

Picking up the pieces and moving forward

Monday 2 weeks ago I landed back in hospital. It was the first day in 21 days that I had not got up and painted, I woke up with a headache, yes I did take a couple of panadol, had some breakfast and then went to see my GP – this was on the schedule. The doctor took a sample and ordered blood tests. I had the tests and went home, cancelled a Spiritual Healing I was to have that afternoon and then later in the afternoon Veronica, my doctor called saying the tests were in and she had called the specialist and I was to go back into hospital. Report straight to emergency. I was devastated.

No I did not jump straight in the car! I got my healing kit together and a nightie etc with Des saying I can bring things in for you. Two hours later I was in Medical 3, a new 2 bed ward at Tweed Hospital. There was no view as I had had before. Yes that is a bandage on my wrist, catheter back in for the intravenous antibiotics as initially they thought I had an infection.

So why did I land back up in hospital?   (more…)

Intuitive Heart #20: Linked Love


This was the first stage of today’s intuitive heart painting that I drew with aquarelles. This is frequently how I work, drawing first and then using water to paint into the drawing. I nearly left this as today’s heart and then I was drawn to paint into it. This is the first painting in this series where more than one heart has surfaced.


My heart links with and sends love to hearts both close by and those faraway-Suzie

This reminds me of a meditation Des did with me recently that we have called The Ashram Within. Also it is similar to one Anne Aleckson shared and from that I painted Heart Spring.

Which one of the images speaks to you?

Do You Have Your Life In Perspective?

Today I am grateful for being present with what is, knowing how blessed I am to be alive. from today on I will appreciate each moment with delight.

perspectiveYesterday was the monthly visit time to the Renal Specialist – good results on the kidney function now at 68% and my blood levels good and I do celebrate that. It makes my heart sing. I then had a rather emotional time with being told that the new medication I am on, Imuran (Azathioprine) combined with the Prednisolone would continue for 1 year and 6 months respectively- This was not my picture and something I am not comfortable with.

So yes I cried most of the way home, that was good as I had been experiencing an emotional numbness. I then talked with Des and my wonderful friend Stephanie. Their words of wisdom reinforced me how blessed I was. As Stephanie reminded me the Doctors have never had anyone like me so they don’t know what to do with me. Most people who get concentric glomerulonephritis do end up on dialysis, in need of a kidney transplant and some die. They are basing everything on results and what is written about what has now been called Anca negative nephritis which the doctor keeps impressing on me is serious.

Last week I did embrace for the first time the fact that I could have died, something I had chosen not to even think about.  The medical profession that I am dealing with have no room for self-healing, holistic or any other alternatives even though they are still surprised at my initial recovery which astounded them. I will be ever grateful to Dr S for the action he took back on July 16th as even though risky it probably saved my life and has has me free of dialysis and I AM ALIVE.  I need to find the balance between fighting the Drs and believing in miracles. I will continue for the next 3 months with the medication and at the same time continue with my own self-healing work that I do daily. I believe that more miracles will emerge. 🙂

I  then had a do nothing much afternoon, went to meditation at Temples of Light, always an uplifting, vibe raising session. We meditated under a pyramid with crystals: a new experience for me and I felt quite grounded. That helped me to got everything back in perspective and  I wrote the words that begin this post. I then read  a blog post on Getting through Tough Times which is inspiring on how others cope when things get tough.

What do you do when faced with a life threatening situation?
