Before I tell you the story of our trip to Spain I thought I would update you as to my fabulous news, and forthcoming events.
THE 'QUIRKY MEDIUM' IS A SILVER CERTIFICATE WINNER!
The Quirky Medium is AN AWARD WINNING BOOK! I entered the Wishing Shelf Independent book competition last year, and was told earlier this year, that I was a finalist. This week, my Publisher from Local Legend e-mailed me to give me the fabulous news. His e-mail was entitled 'WOW'! I am being awarded a Silver Certificate for the Quirky Medium. Such exciting news and I am so proud of my first book. We opened the champagne that evening! When I receive my certificate I will frame it and hang it in pride of place in my healing room.

ANGEL- E-MAIL READINGS
Angel e-mail readings are becoming very popular if you need a little direction from the Celestial Realms. I have already done a couple since moving here to Spain and they are a wonderful way of the angels speaking to you through messages they relay to me, which includes a 3 card angel spread.

I will be back on EGH Media very soon to continue with the popular monthly Quirky Medium show. Don't miss it!

SETTLING INTO OUR NEW HOME!
Yes we are here finally in our new home in Spain. In fact we have been here for a month now. There has been so much to do but we are getting there, and I am so happy with the results.
Leaving our old home
It hasn't all been plane sailing though especially in 'our previous life' in our old home. I was so upset knowing we were leaving such a beautiful house and garden with my meditation room which was a haven of serenity at the top of the garden. I should have taken more notice of our pets at the time because after doing the very last reading in my healing room I started to take my pictures down and removed the figurines and candles from my angelorium, our dog Libby came into the room. Nothing strange about that, but this was the first time she had come into the room for months. She was promptly followed by our 2 cats Tara and Celeste. The 3 of them stood together looking around, then they looked at me, and sauntered back into the garden. I know they were saying their goodbyes....
Saying goodbye to the house
On the day we left the house, I went through so many emotions but by the time our buyers arrived to move their stuff in, I had 'moved on'. Walking through each room in the house, I knew it wasn't ours anymore and the lovely energy will move with us to our new abode. It seemed strangely eerie - devoid of anything that resembled a home as we had already packed up all our possessions. The angels were preparing me for the next chapter in our lives. That was a turning point for me as I realised that a house is only bricks and mortar. It's the inhabitants who inject love, energy and harmony into what will eventually be, a blessed home.
Our pets start their journey to Spain
Two days before we moved, our pets were picked up by the pet carriers. I was distraught as Libby (who had never been away from home) was put into a cage. She was shaking, and her furry face crumpled - I felt so upset and guilty and rushed into the house. The cats were next to go in - simple you would think as they were taken to the van in individual cat baskets. They had both been taken out and I couldn't bring myself to see them being put into the cages as well, so I remained in the house. As I was trying to compose myself I heard the cat flap bang and my instant reaction was that a stray cat had come into the house. Wrong - it was Tara, she had made her escape from the van, and ran for safety to the home she had only ever known. Talk about trauma! I was thankful at that point that it was pouring down with rain because if the weather had been fair, she would have run off and we would have never caught her in time as they had a couple of hours journey before going over to France on the ferry. When John finally caught her, she was placed into the van, and off they went, my gorgeous furry family on their adventure when we would finally meet in Spain......
Things come to try us!
Our journey was also fraught with problems - first of all, we had a 3 hour delay at the airport. Then when we landed and went to pick our hire car up from Alicante Airport, the hire company had gone home!! It was 3am and we were stranded at the airport. Not our finest hour by any means, but I was not being defeated. We got a taxi to our apartment ( we wouldn't get the keys to our villa until later on that week). In the taxi, we couldn't see anything as it was thick fog - but I had a laugh with the taxi driver, as I pointed to it and I said "Fog" He repeated it until he'd got it right and he kept smiling and pointing to it saying "Fog, Fog".... I had to laugh as I imagined him going home to his wife, and saying "Fog" and I knew that would not mean the foggiest to her! Well at least his English was far better than my Spanish! Something that I am going to do something about. I don't want to live in another Country without at least having a bash at learning the local lingo!
So here we are now.... We waited a few days until signing at the Notary and getting the keys for the villa. We were both so excited when entered our new home and saw that it was much nicer than we had remembered it back in January. Yes it needed updating and painting, but everything about it is perfect for us. Location, views, and the fact it has an under-build which is where I will be working from, and where friends and relatives will stay when they come to visit in the Summer.
Cat on a hot tin roof!!
I'm so happy here, I feel peaceful and am feeling inspired. My favourite place (apart from my healing/reading room) is, believe it or not, on the roof! We are going to have a swing up there where I will write more meditations and my spiritual journal. The views are beautiful, and I could stay up there for hours. I can hear the birds singing merrily away and I love the sound of the palm trees wafting gently in the breeze. Our cat Celeste likes to join me up here - she is drawn to the energies when I am talking to my angels. We are in an elevated position so I can see the mountains clearly, and hear people's laughter and I love listening to the mix of music from the surrounding villa's. It makes quite a magical sound which is carried on the wind... It is another world, literally.... Each of the roads here are named after crystals. Ours is the same name as one of my Spirit Guides - talk about synchronicity....
To close, the angels are directing me to pick a card for my readers so here it is! It has been drawn from 'Healing with the Angels oracle cards by Doreen Virtue. Enjoy!
Your Guardian Angel wants you to know how much they love you right now. Your angels' love is completely unconditional & all-encompassing. You are not alone. This card has been drawn for you as a love letter from your Guardian Angel who wants you to know, "I am right here, I have never left you and can never leave you". You deserve their help and attention. There is nothing that you could have ever thought, said, or done that could ostracise you from your Divine helpers. They never judge or abandon you for the mistakes you make. The angels are simply here to support you so that you can spiritually grow, and help others".
What a beautiful message! remember to always believe, keep hope & harmony in your heart and pay attention to new thoughts and ideas that come to you direct from the angelic kingdom of light. Believe....
