Week ThirtyEight: Arriving LAX 2015 – Encinitas and Chocolate Dessert

Excitement ITS a GO Huston…WE are in COUNTDown MODE…

Exit Cuba 1959 and Enter Encinitas California 2015 for our eldest Daughter Kelly’s Wedding to Scott Hubby to be…

First things First…Plane lands & yes we have gone forward in time back into 2015 and LAX Airport, Get luggage…WOW it all made it through no worries mate! Rum, Cigars and Gifts gratitude Customs Officers 🙂  Find Rental Car Shuttle, lucky this airport is VERY familiar to us, get the shuttle and then…this is where EVERYthing I have learnt in MasterKeys comes into play…After standing in the wrong line for like 10mins I am re directed to the garage RULE ONE: Read Signs NOW this is where the FUN begins “I laugh at the World! “Og Mandino” thanks Og Im needing it about NOW! there is only one agent on and it is taking up2 half and hour for each person at this rate we will be here till midnight…we got to the garage at 11:30am, there are too many stories to tell what happens in the next 2hours maybe I’ll write a blog Post Just about those…

OK we finally hit the counter after letting a MUM in who was hoping to make it to her daughters Graduation still 3/4’s hour drive away…”Give More, Get More” Og Mandino She was Totally Stoked! Yay in our Rental…Pull out of the lot & Holy Guacamole! NO aircon! STOP, turn around, check that car out, send hubby to jump line and get another car sorted while i drag luggage over to the car I want LOVing it FREE UP-Grade with a FULL tank of Gas and NO need to fill up on return 🙂

Hit the Highway into the Fast Lane and head South…All goes extremely well…WE are in the FLOW…Stop at OceanSide for some Wave Watching and Fish N chips mmm mmm mmm…Drive to Encinitas & check into our cute wee room, shower and immediately fall into bed snoring till first light!

Go to Lofty’s for the BEST coffee and sit next to a retired Fire Chief Jack, who is writing a book, when he explains what its about we are like WOW sounds Awesome! He was abit taken aback as that was not the usual reaction he had gotten from other people whom he ha told,  BUT hey we are NOT Other People…”I am Natures Greatest Miracle” Og Mandino…He is looking for people who have had “after death communications”  he had some stories of his own to tell, all in all a very Interesting Man.

On the Road to our Hotel where not only US but most of the Family and Kelly’s old time Friends would be staying for the duration… The Marriot Del Mar in Carmel Valley very nice…Remember First Class all the way Baby! We arrive early but the front desk staff are amazing and get us a room straight away to hang out in (we have Warwick’s 85 yr old Mum who flew in from NZ) until our suite is ready 🙂

EveryOne is arriving…Its EXCITING…we unpack then go hang by the pool…I walk inside to go to the loo and on my way I pass a WHOLE Tray-ful of individual Chocolate Desserts no-one is around I Dee-Lishously DeeVour one with my eyes and pass on by with a BIG smile on my face…As I return back two wait staff are getting ready to take the tray into a luncheon and serve the guests, I cheekily say “You guys are way too trusting leaving those out here with me walking past” They laugh and go about their serving…I told the boys (James and Dan and Warwick) about my adventure…NOT 15mins later the two waitstaff arrive with one of the Chocolate desserts for me, they said one person didn’t show and it was MINE! Love the way the universe works ASK and you will receive! The only one to share it with was Dan as James went off to do something with Warwick 🙂 Dan and I licked that little dish clean mmm mmm mmm….

Week ThirtySeven: The MKMMA Guide Webinar

Kauai

The Journey to Become a certified MKMMA Guide…YES this is something I want to do!

Have I put it into my DMP yet? NO…Why not?

The Training began on the 8th of June and I left for Cuba on the 10th June where there is none OR very little wireless to be found, so I prepared before leaving reading, studying and listening to the color code CD every time i climbed into my car…I said to myself AS soon as you are back on US soil you will login and catch up…

BUT Life got in my way, our daughter Kelly’s Wedding, Family arriving the excitement, dinners, wedding rehearsals, shopping etc etc etc ISN’T there always an etc?

One month later I finally return to our Summer Island Home with Warwick’s Mum in tow hmmm didn’t really plan ahead did I?  Never had an elderly person in the Whare (WOWHouse) before…for the first two weeks it was all about her, making sure she ate properly, slept and safely checked out our WareHouse Space…Some background on MuM, she is 85 lives in the two story family house in Waihi Beach NZ, she  flew all the way from NZ to Los Angels on her own, she LOVEs to travel, she is deaf and wears a hearing aid she can lip read and it amazes me how well she can hear when she wants too…SHE is the Ultimate Silent Observer…She is a wee bit fragile only in that the plane adventures took abit out of her physically, so she was abit wobbly on her feet…

OK all is well Mum’s Sweet As and even been for a Swim or two, we have shopped and she has regained her strength and is all about being her independent self 🙂

So Sunday is the guide’s webinar AM I ready? Well I thought I was…when Shite happens in the morning when your cruising along and it all hits the fan 10mins before it starts I just want to BLINK and disappear away from all this LOUD Noise and Kaos…Breathe Breathe Breathe..The Webinar begins 🙁

I am sooo not ready! We start with the Trello assignments, I finish the 1st task BUT send it to the wrong Email address, Im seeing BUT not seeing, Im second guessing, I’m loosing it…

Arrgghhhhh…OK Breathe Breathe Breathe and JUST LISTEN…

I send out messages that I will re-do all of the tasks after the webinar PHEW! Breathe Breathe Breathe…

Remember that Sanctuary from the last BLOG…

Next time I will IMMEDIATELY BLINK myself there when anything negative is happening in my serene space before my Guide Training Webinar…

I GOT THIS!

Week: ThirtySix The Sanctuary and How to create YOUR own.

the sanctuary

the sanctuary

The Sanctuary...

How do I get one? Is it safe? How do I get there? Can I leave?

This is the place you will go to commune with your councillors, guides, teachers, masters a place that is safe AWAY from the Outside World and where that OUTside World cannot enter Unless Invited by you…What will you need?  IMAGINATION…This is where the FUN begins AS you don’t have to stay within the Laws of Nature…Anything and Everything goes…You may want a turret in a castle overlooking a glen in yesteryear Ireland OR a cabin in the woods OR a bubble like sphere that floats above everyone OR a quiet space in a secret garden OR even to sit in Hemingway’s Library in Havana.  It really is up to you…

REMEMBER this is YOUR Sanctuary YOU get to create it 🙂

Close your eyes and Begin…

Once you decide what your Sanctuary will be like EXPLORE it, Feel it, Touch it, Smell it…IT IS whatever you have created…YOU may want to add stuff to it like a private room OR section to talk to different people OR a scent that makes you feel safe, a beautiful childhood memory…REMEMBER this is YOUR Sanctuary OWN it 🙂

Now I would like you to incorporate a Protection Shield around your Sanctuary…InVISION a beautiful BLUE fire like light encompassing your whole Sanctuary and say these words, “MY Shield is SUPER, SUPER Strong, It is Internally Permeable ALL negative energy and thoughts may LEAVE my Shield but NO negative energy and thoughts can ENTER my Shield, it keeps me Safe, this Shield will last as long as I am within my Sanctuary…So Be It!”

YOU will get really quick at setting your Sanctuary and Shield up that you will be able to go there within a seconds notice,  and YES you can leave it at ANY given time you choose 🙂

ENJOY this Sacred Sanctuary you are Creating to ask questions OR just BE with whomever you please…We are ALWAYs given the Answers…”the guidance I seek may come, or the guidance I seek may not come, but are not both of these an answer?” Og Mandino

The Inner Sanctuary…

This is the Space within your Sanctuary where you can meet with and ask questions and just ‘shoot the shite’ YOU choose who’s coming into this space, you can also access information from anywhere you like YOU just have to ask the Questions! If you are communing with lets say Michael Angelo then you can say “I’d really like to see the plans you did for the painting of the Sistine Chapel”

YOU can TALK to whomEVER YOU choose and ASK ANY question YOU want.  WOW what a gift…

NO Fear…Trust…and BELIEVE!   DO IT NOW! and ENJOY

LOVE to hear about some of YOUR Sanctuary Experiences and Also Descriptions of them…

Aloha…Blessings and Light till my next blog…

Week ThirtyFive: Going Back in time to 1959…Cuba 2015 Before the American’s arrive.

The curtain opens...

The curtain opens…

As we board an  Ilyushin Il-96-300s with Cubana de Aviación (Cuban Airlines) this is the 1st step back in time…

It has a two class configuration…this is a big wide body four engine long haul aeroplane…The 1st class seats are UNreal like big lounge chairs so comfortable I went to sleep as soon as that big baby left the ground feeling totally safe and secure.

Fasten your seatbelt and prepare for landing…OMG I am so excited I have waited for this moment to arrive for awhile, funny when you get into the FLOW its amazing how quickly you can manifest your dreams with a little help from my Merman…

‘I multiply my value a hundredfold’ a quote from Og Mandino

I multiply traveling to AMAZing Places lots 🙂

Through customs with a BIG Welcoming Smile…Mind you we are traveling on our Kiwi Passports.

Change some $US into CUC’s (Cuban Tourist Dollars) find a cab then into the city of Havana to our Hotel The Saratoga…As we travel First Class and it’s my BornDay Month I wanted to stay in Luxurious Style and Comfort and that is exactly what our Hotel is, old style opulence, the paintings, the carpets, the lighting, the door-man and the First Class service…

I’m in Heaven in Havana on my 50th BirthDay with my Merman Warwick…

We go to the room and dump our bags have a quick wash…”lets go to the bar for a drink, Happy Birthday to me”

The bar is beautiful, totally old world charm and our barman Randy…OH yeah ladies watch out what a dream, white shirt, bow tie and smoldering cuban blue eyes PHEW! We order coffee, rum and WHY NOT…a Cigar ! Its a birthday gift from blue eyes 🙂

Yip now we’re talking, this is exactly where I wanted to be when I turned 50…its 3am and Life Is GOOD!

Around 11am we wake up…Open our curtains to….WOW its everything and more than I could have imagined check out the architecture and those cars…American 50’s Classic’s everywhere, some are mintO and others are belching black smoke and just bearly moving, its like watching an old 50’s Black n White movie BUT in HOT Cuban Colour!

We decide to go look for breakfast and not half a dozen steps from the hotel door we are swept away into the local scene by ….. a music teacher OR as he likes to be known a Profesor de Musica, he takes us to the local market where he gets a bunch of banana’s for me (I was saying to Warwick up in the room “all i want is a bunch of banana’s” ‘Ask and you shall Receive’) and a beautiful exotic flower…then its onto a bar which supposedly was in the Buena Vista Social Club NOT! I do know abit about Cuba, BUT I’m rolling with it as it’s FUN) where we dance to Cuban music and drink more Rum inspired cocktails… WELL it is my BirthDay!

He asks Warwick if he’d like to buy cigars? THERE are a few things NOT to do in Cuba…BUY anything from anyone on the Street (unless you know them) Warwick says yeah he’ll have a look…BOOM he just bought a $40 bundle of ‘El CrappO’ Cigars! So called Colosso’s,  Fidel’s choice of  Cigars…BaBAM! Wrong!  Anyone who knows anything about Fidel Castro, knows he smoked Cohiba Esplendido…Gotta get street smart baby!  I didn’t care as I was having a Blast, dancing and laughing and having FUN this is what I came here for LIFE is ONE BIG ADVENTURE!

Oh our barman was a huge Russian guy named Vladimir who just kept the cocktails rolling…(for those of you who don’t know me I don’t drink much anymore just the odd cocktail OR two) BUT Cuban Rum I got turned onto by some really good friends Pipi and Geoff from Wellington a very long time ago and I do LOVE it so lets see what happens with that 🙂

We decided to ditch our random tour guide and go explore on our own, the architecture is Unreal you feel like you are in Spain or Italy Or St Petersburg, some of it is standing and being renovated but then right next door is a crumbling mausoleum its definitely a contrast of done and undone…

The people are all happy and colorful, laughing OR singing as they go about their daily shuffle…I have spotted two people totally clothed in white immaculately all in white hmmm who are these people? (I find out later that they are like fortune tellers, shaman, the story keepers) I am being the silent observer and taking it all in…

Its hot and sticky (I personally LOVE these temperatures reminds me of Far North QueensLand) we decide to go up to the pool and hang out for awhile before finding somewhere to go for dinner…

It’s another WOW moment,the view from the rooftop is AMAZing, we will just stay here for dinner I’m thinking…watch the sunset and drink rum YIP more rum…I am totally in a happy place and all of the waitstaff are so helpful. genuine and real they are not trying to impress anyone they are doing the best that they do LIVING right in the NOW (this is one thing I love when I go to other countries especially bordering on the third worldish, the people are all about what’s happening NOW no past tripping no future tripping…living each moment RIGHT NOW)

Time for sleeping…to re-awake within my Dreamland of Cuba tomorrow…what will it bring?

I am Grateful to Warwick my Merman for this ADVENTURE shared together…I LOVE you to the Best Waves and Back xxx

Week ThirtyFour: First Class…In, Along and Out…

We were Born First Class…Why do we settle for anything less?

Most of the time its because OUR Parents did, and this is where some of our WORST Habits were formed…Bless their Hearts they were only working with the knowledge they had at that time…Thank the Goddess OR whomever you like that as we get older WE get to choose our Teachers of this OUR Life Experience as a Spirit inside of a HU-Man Body…
