Anya Andreva, one of the organisers of last week’s inspiring visit by Little Grandmother, Keisha Crowther, tells us how she has been inspired by Keisha’s simple message.
Kiesha Crowther (aka Little Grandmother as named by the elders) was pretty much my gateway into spirituality, having discovered her inspirational videos back in 2010. Her messages resonated a lot with me and since then I have seen her talk in Wales, at the Galstonbury Prophets conference, and just recently helped organise her workshop in Spain.
Her message is simple … Continue reading
On this day of your life, dear friend, I believe God wants you to know …that … “Why is this happening?” is the most useless question in the universe. The only question that really profitable is, “What do I choose now?” This question is power.
The question of “why” simply perplexes, and rarely satisfies even when it gets a good response. So it is not “figure it out”. Just focus on what you want to create now. Keep moving forward.
There’s nothing behind you (your past), you … Continue reading
If you write your negative thoughts on paper and then throw them away, they will also disappear from your mind. Conversely, if you write some thoughts down on paper and keep them in your pocket, you’ll be more likely to have them present in your daily life.
All this may seem silly, but it really works. This has been highlighted by a study at Ohio State University with the support of the University of Madrid.
Some types of psychological therapy use variations of this method to try … Continue reading
“Consciousness means full consciousness moment to moment without judgment”
Jon and Myla Kabat-Zinn (pg 24 Mindful Parents, Happy Children)
Labeling or judging reality separates us from it. By putting labels on reality, we are interposing something between it and us. From there we end up leaving the reality of life and getting into a limited and schematic mental world.
We know that the mind is capable of grasping reality, because its function is to simplify reality into bite sized chunks that we can fit in our ‘cupboards’ of … Continue reading

Do you run on autopilot ?
One of the things that happens to us more often is that we run on “autopilot”. This means that we do things without thinking, like have always done them, clinging to the same thoughts and habits. It is running in a routine, as if we were an automaton programmed to run the same program over and over again. But therein lies a problem: if we are hoping for a different outcome. The worst thing is that it is extremely easy … Continue reading
