Let me play devils advocate and say that we’re in a matrix or holographic universe. You can liken this to being in a computer game. If you’ve ever engaged in a computer game, you know that you’re playing a game. The only problem with our collective perceived reality is that we’ve forgotten we’re in... Continue Reading →
Keep on aligning yourself to your 'new' vision especially when you feel that sinking feeling in your stomach (solar plexus) when thinking about the distress it may be causing (keep alchemizing it!).
If there is ever something to remember about anxiety it’s this: one step at a time! You’re amazing and you’ll do it all, only if you tackle what’s in front of you now. As my dear mother used to say, ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day’.
When you learn to use synchronicity, you’ll start to follow the breadcrumbs to fulfilling your dreams. Be careful of shrugging events off as mere coincidence because that’s exactly what they’ll become. #synchronicity
It is said that the magic word, ‘Abracadabra’ may have Aramaic origins meaning ‘I create as I speak’. #magic #selfhelp
Saying no doesn't make you a horrible person — you are merely a person with healthy boundaries. #selfhelp
Tibetan Wisdom Most of us want an abundant, full life. I stumbled across a beautiful Tibetan proverb on my facebook feed that really made sense. Let me share it with you: "The secret to living well and longer is: eat half, walk double, laugh triple and love without measure" How simple is that? Eat half —... Continue Reading →
“If everybody minded their own business, the world would go around a great deal faster than it does.” — The Duchess (Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland) Hmmm, yes. What is it about human nature that keeps our noses continuously stuck in other people’s affairs? I'm sure we've all been lured into, blind-sided or even voluntarily stepped... Continue Reading →
If you truly want what you say you want, you’re going to be driven to try any and every avenue. The world is your oyster, so crack open the Tabasco sauce and start slicing up those lemons!
When you fling yourself out the door of familiarity into the wild and exciting wilderness, always remember that there is never failure only feedback. #comfortzone #selfhelp #cherieroedirksen
When it comes to concerns about life’s uneasy or potentially disastrous situations, we start to worry. I don’t think there is a single person in this world that hasn’t experienced a copious bout of the collywobbles in their lifetime — but why do we do this? #worry #selfhelp #cherieroedirksen
Let go of the monkey mind version of how you want your life to transpire and let in the guidance of the higher mind. The egoic mind can only create from past events. #monkeymind #buddhism #CherieRoeDirksen #selfhelp
We need to take responsibility for what we give our attention to and for how we allow, yes allow, the media to manipulate our emotions and pervade the airwaves with such repugnant negativity. #fear #negativity #overcomeit
Ponder for a moment: are your beliefs holding you back? Are your thoughts aligned with your heart (innate) or your head (ego).
Viewing the HTML/WYSIWYG Code I’m going to play devils advocate and suggest that we are, indeed, living in a construct matrix or hologram (keep in mind that these are just words to be used as ‘training wheels’ for the analogy or concept) and it may be entirely possible for us to change our very own...

Plug in, Baby I have a WordPress site and I think they're pretty user friendly. However, my IT-challenged brain just can't handle all these new appy, gizmo-type thingy-ma-jigs. Let's take plugins — God bless them for what they do, unbeknownst to me. It took me about 30 minutes to realize that figuring out how to... Continue Reading →
If you can cultivate a healthy awareness and can become the 'observer' of your reality, you can face your fear and transmute it into valuable data that can keep you safe and sane in an insane society. #heart #matrix
Baby, You're a Firework! 'Tis the season to be jolly — people all over the globe are dusting off the mistletoe, donning the lip-gloss and puckering up for the long line of friends and family just waiting to be welcomed inside cozy, fire-lit domiciles. "Christmas is a time when you get homesick, even when you’re... Continue Reading →
Don’t you sometimes wish you could hijack the DeLorean from ‘Back to the Future’ and go back in time to give the younger you some meaningful and helpful lessons in life (never mind a sharp upper cuff)? Well, you’re here now — older and wiser with experience under your belt — and the pipeline dream of procuring time machines probably just isn’t going to happen. The brighter side is that we can enlighten future generations of the deeper meanings behind some really profound truths.
It's great when we find ourselves on a high — experiencing supreme joy, love, happiness and elation. It's really shitty when we hit rock bottom — experiencing doubt, anger, pain and fear. The key to true happiness is somewhere in the middle.
The Ultimate Test of Patience “Trying to understand is like straining through muddy water. Have the patience to wait! Be still and allow the mud to settle.” ― Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching I love that last bit — 'allow the mud to settle'. How many of us allow our challenges to abate before we act? Ever... Continue Reading →
We have an unnatural amount of data to process than that of the average human being, say just 30 years ago let alone a century back. We have social media and most of us get swept away in superfluous cr@p on our newsfeeds — we see the daily activities of people we don't even know.... Continue Reading →
I was at my monthly Power of 8 group and one of the members suggested our intention should be clarity and focus. She said she had seen a meme on some social platform that read (and I paraphrase): "My mind is like my internet browser, I have 13 tabs open, 3 are frozen and I... Continue Reading →
Let's talk about blockages — no not the physical kind (although...there is something later on about the physical manifestation). I'm talking about energetic flow kind of blocks — we all hit them at some point. You're cruising through life manifesting like a pro and then...voila! You hit a wall. The wall seems insurmountable — there's... Continue Reading →
I write this article with a heavy heart. I felt the urge to acknowledge this in the only way I know how — to write about it. "The idea of evil is always subject to denial as a coping mechanism" ~John Bradshaw I was a person who preferred not to see the evil in the... Continue Reading →
"One of the best pieces of advice I ever got was from a horse master. He told me to go slow to go fast. I think that applies to everything in life. We live as though there aren't enough hours in the day but if we do each thing calmly and carefully we will get... Continue Reading →
When Life Gives You Lemons... I would like to give you a recipe for the best darn lemonade ever — it's about community, asking, giving and thriving. 4 years ago I moved to a remote little village in the klein Karoo, South Africa. I soon learnt that there was a really great switched on bunch... Continue Reading →

If you hold onto how things have to happen you are being manipulated by the ‘negative’ aspect of the ego. The ego has its place in your life. It is responsible for making your experience — in the physical plane — real. However, when the ego thinks it can control how your life pans out... Continue Reading →
During a daily ‘quickie’ meditation me and my hubby do, Mike turns to me and asks, ‘Why do we keep on asking for the same thing — surely that shows you don’t trust the process?’ I tried to defend the situation by saying that repetition and affirmation anchor a desire. Then I thought about what... Continue Reading →
“In order to carry a positive action we must develop here a positive vision.” — Dalai Lama Stepping Up to the Plate You’re probably familiar with the saying ‘what you think you create’ but how can you seriously filter every bad thought? There is a way, I promise. But before we delve into the amazing... Continue Reading →
A friend posted a quirky quote to my Facebook wall the other day — it read: When something goes wrong in your life just yell, “Plot Twist!” and move on. I had a good laugh and then a light-bulb went on in the old noggin — that’s totally true and a helluva great life strategy! Here’s... Continue Reading →
Move Over Moses! If you had a time machine, what would you go back and tell your younger self? What important advice could you give your child right now? For me, I'd chisel these 5 things onto a stone tablet (just to be sure it would hit home) and hand it to Cherie the youth:... Continue Reading →
If worry projects a negative future outcome then I think gratitude is its antithesis. If you have insane gratitude for what has not even happened in your current NOW, you are investing positive, expectant energy into your future NOW. Read related article: Simply BE in Gratitude Bursting at the Seams I recently had my hot water cylinder... Continue Reading →
I'm going to make today's blog short and sweet. Pretty nifty for a writer who's so long-winded, right? I hope I can convey this 'new theory' through the written word — I thought of videoing an interpretive dance for you but that would probably be more confusing. So here it goes... I've discovered a new... Continue Reading →
Simple Complexity — The Dichotomous Nature of Our Reality I've just finished the painting I used in the header picture above (you can click on it to see the whole image). It's a new style I'm dappling in. When I stepped back from the painting — after I had downed my brush — the first... Continue Reading →
Hitting a Hurdle I was recently flying high with my manifestations and was literally seeing things I wanted present themselves to me in the most magnificent, unexpected and darn-right scary ways. Then suddenly...nothing. What happened? I started getting a little antsy — why had I hit a roadblock? I sat with this question for over... Continue Reading →
So you've taken the initiative to change the course of your life to something that pleases you more. You've recognized that you are the co-creator of your experience and you've set your sails to bring you more of what you desire. Suddenly you are confronted with more of what you don't want. Why? Understanding the... Continue Reading →
Most people know by now (including scientists) that there are an infinite amount of parallel universes out there (or in here — it depends on your point of view). If you prefer to hear the article, watch the video below: https://youtu.be/qAx9n4P8xyo "If you're trying to change the world you are in now, you can't. You... Continue Reading →
Your Focus is Your Life If you're not expecting great things to happen to you each and every day, you're probably not going to be disappointed — you'll be creating the mundane. You're a powerful creator either way. Remember that movie 'Groundhog Day'? The main character repeated the same day over and over and over... Continue Reading →
