A Mother’s Love


I found this beautiful poem my mum wrote about me in my teens, and wanted to record and share it 🙂

Graceful, tall and serene

she stands

heart swelling with love and

healing through her hands

Nature inside and out is what

she holds tenderly

My feelings for her are love

and pride and security too

Njari these words are all for you

from the moment I held you

my being was complete and whole

Forget the fleeting time when

sadness was inside me

don’t carry it with you, for it is gone

The loving went on when I made up my mind

to carry you.

You will always be my baby

and happiness you will find

Don’t be sad, for I feel it too

One so caring, gentle and wonderful

should only be shrouded in love

and warmth and tenderness

I’m always here

although to you it seems so far

my heart bleeds when you’re sad and down

Keep your head high in the clouds

look to the sky and be happy to be alive

and know that I love you

with every inch of my heart

from this small distance

I’m watching you grow

and learn and bloom

Take care every day and forget

the dusty worries, sweep them aside

Lots of love, Mum

Just to give some background, I AM lucky to be here here, as my mother attempted suicide whilst pregnant with me. It was a difficult part of her life. On a soul level, perhaps fear of abandonment or self value have chosen such circumstances, people and events as a life long lesson. My mum is one of the best mothers ever, she would do absolutely anything for me, and I love her very much.


Close Watch on your Heart?


This is a beautiful soul stirring song about Love. If you are nursing a fragile heart or you are scared to open your heart this is for you…

Beautiful song by AGNES OBEL – ‘Close Watch’

Our individual journeys in life take us to situations which we encounter a variety of people, some like us, some different. We cannot anticipate our meetings with these souls, or how they impact our lives, but we make the most of their presence in our lives. Every person we meet can affect us profoundly, just like every situation teaches us something new.

When these relationships pass, we feel that the pain that wounds us deeply the most leaves a mark upon our hearts. But this shock, this ache eventually leads us to other blessings and depth in our lives, if we choose.

Acknowledge your heart, and allow the healing to begin. You need to feel that pain to pay attention to yourself emotionally, be with your feelings, and fully be in them, so you can then release them and begin to heal. It is fully feeling pain and acknowledging it that we truly heal.

Be gentle with yourself. And be open again to the  possibility of loving, trusting and believing again.

When people truly love, their love awakens our love for ourselves.

We are love.

You are love.

The Art of Living


I think in life you need:

An open heart, open mind, open spirit
An understanding of the soul within
A desire to overcome all obstacles in achieving your individual destiny
An understanding of the needs of persistence
A tenaciousness that is unique,not dogged
A direct and honest approach
The will to continue learning
A search for personal challenges and self improvement
An inspiration for spiritual growth
An acceptance of change and loss
The courage to fail
The courage to try again
A strong vulnerability
An ornate simplicity
A refusal to be made to feel insecure by anyone
A propensity to focus and build on positive life experiences
A dedication to find the truth, your truth, in every situation
A sense of adventure
To know how to give and receive unconditional love (from Pat)
To know how and when to just laugh at the absurdies of life (from Pat)
Embrace Chance, it’s the beginning of all Life (Jeroen)

Love & Blessings Njari

Appreciate the smallest thing, whether a smile, a card, a fragrance in passing, a lovely view, a creature
Cultivate an understanding of others cultures and viewpoints even when it is difficult to put yourself in their place
Consider carefully the effects on other people of your actions, words and thoughts – everything comes back multiplied
Take care and appreciate the rituals in your life
Be thankful for all you have
Don’t live with regret

Can you think of anything else you would put in the list?
