As we come towards the end of another year it is a good time to reflect on where you are now in relation to where you were almost 12 months ago.
Maybe you hit all your goals. Maybe like me there have been some things that were
great- you feel a great sense of achievement
some challenges :
What I will be doing over the next week will be to journal on how I am feeling, I will look back on each month.
This week I am taking time leading up to my birthday to take time to be still and listen as I reflect back on the reading I did last January. What stood out for me was that the card I drew for December was Just Be.
That is what my body has been telling me since I completed the Focus on Abundance 5 Day Challenge. The challenge raised questions for me and had my limiting beliefs appearing. As I flip back through my journals for the year, it is great to reference each month.
When I spend time reflecting on my year, I will be meditating, listening to my whispers and making note of what i have done that I can take into the new year.
A new year is time to start over, start fresh. This year I feel I will be building on what I have put into place that I am seeing myself powering forward.
At the Daring and Disruptive Female Entrepreneurs group that I belong to, end of year session last week we shared how we saw our year and then we ere asked to share with someone new, and swap the soul foot we had written on.
What so many of us found was the words we received spoke maybe to us for the coming year.
These words I received from another Suzi touched my heart. Then Lauren, another daring and disruptive joined us and shared what her word had been for 2016
Forecast Your Year Through Tapping Into Your Heart Whispers
The New Year is the time which bring us the energy of planning, forward-thinking, a focus on manifesting what we really, really want for the next year.
Using Oracle cards is an empowering way to look at what the year ahead may look like for you, in maybe a more gentle way.
How would you like to go into the new year, knowing that you are aligned with your heart’s true desire?
With clear intentions that are supported by your heart whispers, your intuition.
If you think it would help you to get clear on your intentions for 2017, I am offering a special New Year Heart Whisper Reading to set you up for 12 months of success, abundance and joy. You own forecast with guidance as you move towards that wildly abundant 2017.
Last Week I shipped all the pre-orders that I had received in December before I went away for a 2 week holiday. I was unable to send the cards out before I went away as one of the cards had not been printed and the cards had not been wrapped as ordered. I can see now why print on demand is looking very attractive.
With printing, I remember from my textile business sometimes there is a stuff up. I surprised myself as my patience was being tested. My plan to ship before Xmas went out the window and I was still smiling. My ability to stay calm in a crisis delights me. I have grown.
This all happened late on Friday afternoon, the week before Xmas and no one was in the office until Monday. We were planning to leave very early on the Monday morning to drive south to The Entrance which was over 9 hours driving.
We left 2 hours later than planned, after negotiating successfully with the printers to print the missing card. To ship the way I had calculated the postage meant there would be some unshrink wrapping when we came back in January.
This was all rectified last week and on Friday I headed off to the post office with my specially wrapped Heart Whisper Decks, to ship to USA, Canada, UK, Switzerland and locally here in Australia.
It was exciting and took me back to the days when I would be shipping my silk scarves and clothing, mainly around Australia. ( BTW there are still a few handpainted silk scarves on sale at my Etsy store at almost cost price)
Color and Sensuality
What has delighted me with the cards is the color,- absolutely brilliant. The time it took me to turn every card from RGB to CMYK was truly worthwhile.- and the feel is sensuous. These cards have been printed on a heavier weight card and have a special finish that makes them feel as smooth as silk.
They feel different to any of my many deck of oracle cards that I have on my bookshelf. Eighteen at last count. What I understand from the printer is that they will not scratch and still look and feel new in years to come.
I took a sample set with me on holiday and when I showed my friend Yantra Lindon she kept feeling them, then went and got 2 other sets of cards out to compare. This is what she has shared on facebook.
Have you seen these beautiful Heart Whisper Cards – just released by my dear friend Suzie Cheel – these cards are all original artworks inspired by Suzie’s own life journey, each card is beautiful, colourful. insightful and tactile – YES TACTILE – the cards are unlike any you have felt before, they have a silky amazing sensual feel, it is as though you are feeling the actual vibrancy and colour as well as receiving the beautiful messages from your own heart – worth checking them out and ordering a set – love Yantra xx
My brother who, we were holidaying with and used to own a large bookstore that sold all the various Angel and Tarot decks, told my niece: “that this was the best thing your aunt has done, she has excelled herself!” That was high praise coming from my brother. No he is not into what he used to call ” all that stuff on the back shelves” The New Age Section.
Yes I am smiling, it has taken me a long while to get a product to you and the world. The response so far is brilliant and has my heart singing.
My sister-in-law. Gabby has been using them each morning and displaying her card for the day where she can see it and be reminded of what her heart is whispering to her through out the day. This has inspired me to add in some others tools that will help others listen to their own heart whispers, heal themselves and learn to more fully love themselves.
As Yantra said: “These cards are inspired by my own life journey”. The heart whisper and the heart whisper paintings came from my NDE and allowing my creativity to unfold was part of my own healing.
The messages and choice of cards and topics came mostly from my own heart whispers. The happiness card was inspired by a comment from Susan Wright Boucher when I shared this painting, Susan said it was her favorite and depicted for her happiness.
Suzie of all the art I’ve seen you produce, this one is my all time favourite. The vertical blue strokes lead the eye up and make me think of happy things. It has popped into my FB stream a few times and each time it gives me an unexpected warm feeling.
“Don’t try to present your art by making other people read or hear or see or touch it; make them feel it. Wear your art like your heart on your sleeve and keep it alive by making people feel a little better. Feel a little lighter. Create art in order for yourself to become yourself and let your very existence be your song, your poem, your story. Let your very identity be your book. Let the way people say your name sound like the sweetest melody.”~ Charlotte Eriksson
What Does Your Heart Whisper When You Look Into This Painting?
When I read the verse above I smiled and thought of my new tagline: Art that opens your heart.
When I share my daily heart whisper painting on The Heart Whisper Circle each night I go to sleep looking forward to reading the next morning what, the day’s Heart Whisper painting has whispered to others.
The words that whispered to me after I painter Heart Whisper 267 were: I follow one path and abundance flows. I have made this the prosperity card i the upcoming Heart Whisper oracle card deck.
The whispers of their hearts the members of the Heart Whisper Circle: Kim : Rock n roll time again! My heart whispers, “Follow the Stairway To Heaven,” The hearts looked to be ascending into the beautiful blue sky & I was was humming Led Zeppelin! Jean : Yes, ascending hearts! Meredith This say to me: Our many loves are stepping stones in life. The path to find love or to do what you love may be an uphill battle so don’t forget to pause, breathe deeply, and take in the beauty along the way
What does your heart whisper when you look into this painting?
The responses from the Monday facebook question were wide and varied which is reaffirms the statement from Charlotte Erikkson’s words.
Don’t try to present your art by making other people read or hear or see or touch it; make them feel it. Wear your art like your heart on your sleeve and keep it alive by making people feel a little better. Feel a little lighter. Create art in order for yourself to become yourself and let your very existence be your song, your poem, your story.
Let your very identity be your book.
Let the way people say your name sound like the sweetest melody.
So go create. Take photographs in the wood, run alone in the rain and sing your heart out high up on a mountain
where no one will ever hear and your very existence will be the most hypnotising scar.
Make your life be your art and you will never be forgotten.

Kelley Grimes: That there are so many ripple effects when we are loving and compassionate!
Then there was: Follow love….. journeying, Ascension…., Butterflies, Dance! Seasons, Fresh air and Love
Some people see and feel similar things , others hearts whisper something that another cannot feel or see.
The magic of life. What makes us all so special.

When we listen to the whispers of our heart we tap into our wisdom – Suzie Cheel(Click To Tweet)
As we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence actually liberates others. ~ Marianne Williamson
Are you letting you light shine brightly for you and the world to see or are you hiding your light under a bushel?
As the moon shone on Wednesday evening and there was magical energy, I planned a Full Moon ritualto release those those feelings and thoughts that I allow to creep in sometimes that bring on the FUD factor. I wrote down in my journal that I would do a full moon painting. I had no idea what would emerge onto the paper when I started to paint last night at 9.13pm. I chose a soft blue that I washed over with a deep blue, some white and then layered it with purple. My brush was so full of paint that I brushed the excess onto a board that was at hand. That was how I come to have two moon paintings. The second painting having a deeper background and a heart shape. The gold was my next color choice, representing the new energies that are coming and then the moon shining brightly.
After I had completed the paintings I went outside to look at the full moon and perfection was the word that came to me. I then lit a candle and brought out the paper that I had written the words and feelings I was wanting to release. It was now time to clear away what has been me holding back. This is an exercise I have done in different form over the years. Last night I chose to draw a red heart to hold what I was releasing. Then it was time to meditate, yes under the moonlight, read the words within the heart and then light the paper and release into the night sky.
Then as I went to sleep I asked for my dreams to be filled with my hearts desires.
When I woke this morning I felt light and thought what are some ways that I can continue let my light stay shining brightly?
Here are 7 ways that I know help me shine my light:
I meditate and ask my inner wisdom, my guides and my angels to help and guide me.
I ask each morning how may I serve.
I focus on what I really really want ~ my heart’s desire ~ what juices me and makes my heart sing.
I smile ~ I wake up with a smile and I smile at the people I pass on my beach walk, at the shops etc. You do shine when you smile.
I let go of the woulds, the coulds and shoulds and I am kind to ME
I tap away any fears and doubts (Emotional Freedom Technique). I find this an empowering, quick way to shift negativity as well as a powerful healing tool that I used daily during my healing journey.
All these things raise my vibes and make me feel good. When we feel good we we shine and we step into our light.
People are like stained – glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within. ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
Green is the color of energy and abundance, of nature, of apples and pears, of limes, of broccoli, kale, spinach, peas and beans, of balance and harmony, of growth and money, of jade and malachite Green presents in so many shades and hews. As I look out my window I can count at least 20 varying shades and tones of green.
Green is the color of the fourth chakra, our heart chakra and love centre. The heart chakra is related to our ability to love and is a source of compassion, kindness and affection. When our heart chakra is in balance and we are accepting of ourself and others, our self-esteem is healthy and our vibes are high: We Feel Good.
This post is part of a Color Prescription series I started over 2 years ago , just before I experienced the autoimmune disease that put me out of action with a total kidney failure. I had painted a series of paintings which you can see in the video and I have added some that I have painted since then.
I reflected back on stopping this series at the heart chakra: I did have a draft back in July 2011! The message that I got back 2 years ago was that this journey for me was all about love, when I fractured my humerus in January 2012, it was in line with my heart chakra, as was my crush fracture. Seem the universe was making sure this time I slowed down enough to get the message!
I have had time to look closely at my own love path as well as observe others wanting to raise their love vibes.
Here are 7 ways I have found that help in opening the heart chakra:
Be Love: love and accept you as you are NOW!
Be KInd: watch the thoughts you think and the words you speak about yourself
Love others unconditionally- this becomes easier the more we love ourselves and release any need to beat up on ourself:)
Go out in nature, lay on the grass and watch the clouds drift by.
Treat yourself- soak in a lavender bubble bath
Breathe- deep breathing releases toxins and blocked energy
Forgive yourself- try using Ho’oponopono and EFT. These are two tools I use daily
What do you do on a daily basis to keep your Heart Chakra open ?

The more you trust your intuition, the more empowered you become, the stronger you become, and the happier you become. ~ Gisele Bundchen
Today’s BEach Inspiration: Be Trusting follows on from the last words I wrote here on Monday: It is time to step back and do some reflection and go inside, listen and TRUST!
Does trusting yourselfand your intuition empower you?
The quote by Gisele suggests that, and my friend Michele does too, when saying NO was empowering not just for her but for others. This got me reflecting about times when I don’t trust or even forget to use my inner wisdom, my intuition. I have become very conscious of my words and my thoughts and how they either empower or disempower me and how that can create FUD!.
I am great at tapping into and trusting my intuition sharing it with Des and helping others. I know that when I am quiet and still first thing each morning and when I am journaling and meditating I allow my intuition to the forefront.. I am aware that often as I get caught up in my day I can sometimes move forward blindly or get caught up in other people’s stories- yes I love reading and commenting on blogs and I know this can take my focus away from the task at hand. I need to fan more of the tiny. inner sparks of possibility!
Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement. ~Golda Meir
3 Things to do to learn to trust your intuition more?
Firstly take time each day to be in stillness, start with 10 minutes morning and evening. ( try 5 minutes if 10 seems daunting at first).Start with 3 deep breaths and feel yourself relax,then……
Ask yourself the question: What does my inner wisdom want me to know today? Thoughts will come and go, like the wind let them fly away.
Listen to what you body is telling you- it might be a feeling, a picture, a sound. Allow yourself to listen and trust. You might like to keep a journal beside you and jot down after the 5 minutes, any message you received. This will increase your trusting muscle. (PS I use Insight timer on my phone to keep track of the time.)

Welcome to Day 21 of the Love Challenge. If you’re only just catching up with us today go here first to find out what you need to do to get started.
You might have been wondering if this 21 day post was ever coming. If you follow me on facebook you will have read that I had a few challenges. I am not normally drawn to things like mercury retrograde, only that week I had seen others have technical challenges they would not normally experience. 🙂
Part of me feels I have let you down as it is now EEK 31 days have passed since we started- maybe this was meant to be a 31 day challenge! Yesterday I finally got the audio and video in sync. Yes there has been a little of that wonderful procrastination too, and at the same time I have been kind to me. There is a very positive side to this too:
“Believing in our hearts that who we are is enough is the key to a more satisfying and balanced life.”– Ellen Sue Stern
I do now believe I am enough. (This has been a limiting belief for me)
I feel an inner calm
I have learned that my receiving channel is closed to praise
I joyfully look in the mirror and say I love you and feel it, my heart smiles.
My patience with me had been further expended
I know there is more growing coming
I have many other discoveries I will be sharing as my self-love journey continues.
Now to conclude the challenge. I decided to record a chakra clearing meditation that would bring together the 21 days. I have set this to my beach photos and my chakra and heart paintings. The meditation is 15 minutes long. Relax and allow yourself to receive.
Remember to thank yourself for giving yourself this gift of the love challenge.
I thank you for joining me on this challenge and look forward to reading your comment of your awakenings.
Yes there will be a follow up to this so make sure you have subscribed so you get notified.
namaste, be love
Mirror work twice a day. I am saying I love and accept myself 21 times in the morning and again in the evening. If you are finding yourself yawning read yesterday’s post
“In the infinity of life where I am, All is perfect, whole and complete,I no longer choose to believe in old limitations and lack, I now choose to begin to see myself.As the Universe sees me as perfect, whole, and complete.” ― Louise L. Hay, You Can Heal Your Life
Welcome to Day 9 of the Love Challenge. If you’re only just catching up with us today go here first to find out what you need to do to get started.
I first bought Louise Hay’s book back in the 1984 when it first came out and that copy fell apart from constant use. You Can Heal Your Life and the original Heal Your Body A-Z: The Mental Causes for Physical Illness and the Way to Overcome Them have been constant companions for many years and I decided yesterday as part of the challenge to reread You Can Heal Your Life. Louise is a shining example of the changes that can come about when one believes in and loves oneself.The book is a great refresher to remind myself to focus on the positive which as many of you know I do
I was inspired when recently as part of the 5th World Tapping summit that Louise was introduced to EFT by Nick Ortner. Louise was tapping away some childhood issues. It seems when we release the old storieswe create room for more love to come in
Here is a video of the trailer of the movie You Can Heal Your Life.Louise talks about Self-Love: Saying Love dissolves anger. So if we could replace those moments of anger- yes I still have moments of anger, with love we can move towards self acceptance faster.
Your thoughts can change your life- Louise Hay
Do you believe you can heal your life? I know from my own experience with my kidney failure that Yes I can.
Please share your experiences with You Can Heal Your Life below
“I am willing to release the need to be unworthy. I am worthy of the very best in life, and I now lovingly allow myself to accept it” ― Louise L. Hay

“The Intuition principle is about getting in touch with who you are authentically by listening to your intuition.” – Angela Artemis
Angela Artemis says The Intuition Principle is the key to finding your purpose, living with passion and joy, and heightening your success. It is that inner voice that directs you in times of need and the unexpected solution to a problem that appears just when you need it. The Intuition Principle is a book that will empower you. I have been using my intuition for many years and there are new exercises Angela has introduced me to through the book that will extend my intuitive life.
I had the pleasure of talking with Angela about how and why she developed her intuition, why she wrote the book, how she helped me through giving me a prescription that rekindled my creativity and more. I hope you will find something that touches your heart and inspires you to to either begin to use or extend your intuitive practice.
Did you have some ah ha moments during the video? Please share in the comments below. Did what Angela shared open the door to either expanding or growing your intuition? The Intuition Principle can show you how to create the life you were always meant to live by :
Activating your full potential and achieving all your dreams
Manifesting abundance in every area of life
Feeling energized and full of enthusiasm – every day
Finding true happiness and meaning in your life
Creating joyous meaningful relationships
Establishing a deep connection to your spirituality
Receiving constant guidance from a higher power through your intuition
