Adventures with God

My Adventures with God


      They really began over 20 years ago, when we, as a family, had some very traumatic and worrying times to work through. I have never doubted God’s existence, I just doubted that He knew my name.
      Frances? Frances who? No I don’t remember her!
      Well it just shows how wrong I was, because when I needed help and support that I could also pass on to the family, God was there, and within a short time I could see clearer what was important in life and what wasn’t.
      I was receiving spiritual healing at a centre where I regularly took my mother, and it wasn’t long before I knew I needed to give back. So in 1997 I trained to be a spiritual healer. Since then I have been on a learning journey that has taken me into channelling writings, healing, training, working abroad, releasing the pain of past life issues for clients, doing talks, collaborating with artists in 3 sets of Oracle cards, and for nearly 10 years co-running Give Youth A Hand with Mike. 
      It was a charity to help homeless and women with children escaping domestic violence in the UK, and taking aid convoys out to Croatia and Serbia after the Balkans war.
      Yes, life can be an adventure if you let it, and here I am on a new one again in Spain.
      I feel a bit like Bilbo Baggins when he goes off with the dwarves in The Hobbit, and I know, just like him, that at the end of each adventure I won’t be the same person. I will have learned something new and found another skill that I didn’t realise I could develop. Because of this, my life is so much richer.
      It’s sometimes hard to believe that we all made choices at the beginning of this life, and once they’re in place, it’s a case of staying positive and making the most of the opportunities they bring, or we maybe conjure up.
      If life’s the big adventure, then there are lots of smaller ones within it, and at times you can wonder if you should have chosen a less demanding travel agent, but come on, as long as you’re following your instincts and ‘listening’ to your soul, there’s always  a reason for taking this direction rather than that one. If you’re tempted, I can recommend taking part. Simply think of it as a treasure hunt and start looking for the clues.
      That’s what we did when we lived in a small apartment in a Derbyshire mill town.  We had downsized, and had no intention of moving again. I did some spiritual work along with Mike, and then while he was playing golf, I walked in the countryside and chatted to God. We were both settled.
      It had been 2 years earlier that my lovely reader friend Di Wall (Counselling with Cartouche) said that we would be moving, and I had just laughed and said ‘No way!’ But it seems God had other plans.
      In the winter of 2014 we decided that we’d take a winter break of 2 ½ months and found a small flat to rent near Malaga. Neither of us had been to Spain previously, so we were looking forward to going there at the beginning of January 2015.
      In the previous November I visited my friend Di and chatted, telling her about the holiday. I also thought I’d have a card reading. I chose my cards and she laid them out. As she turned one over, she laughed. ‘You remember 2 years ago I said you’d move? You are, and I think it’s Spain’.
      I couldn’t say anything, I was so shocked. A) We hadn’t planned on moving. B) Spain? Move abroad?
      A week later we were working at a Mind Body Spirit show in Bristol, and Mike wandered over to a reader friend and told her we were off to Spain for a holiday. ‘You’re not coming back’, she said.
‘Well’, I thought ‘It’s time I talked to God’. So I did, and He confirmed it.
      We had a lovely 3 month break around Malaga but both knew it wasn’t where we needed to live, so with God’s help we looked over near the east coast, finally finding our home outside Cantoria, in Almeria province, and right on the edge of the desert!.
Our 3 bed house on the edge of the
desert, with suitable type plants.
     We moved from the UK at the end of April. Within 4 months we had sold our apartment, and our furniture was on its way to our new home in Spain. That was at the beginning of 2015, and we have no regrets. We love life here with our two doggie boys who joined us within 3 weeks of moving.
      That’s how we make decisions in our family, because when it’s right and you can feel it is, you don’t ask ‘Why?’ You ask ‘How?’ Then things start to fall into place.
     If you haven’t already, do try it, because it frees you off to do things you never imagined you would be doing.

God Knows

God Knows What I'll be Doing Tomorrow

Aah, the sunshine in Sweden
Actually, He’s normally ahead of me on most of the important things, which is comforting. I say ‘He’ because I feel it’s a Fatherly energy, though I do know it is a Universal Spirit Energy.

The beginning of January saw our son and his fiancée, returning to the UK after celebrating the New Year with us. Sad to see them go but we’d been boosted by their company, as always
.
So far we’re lucky with the weather here in Cantoria although it’s very cold most nights. The sun shines on us a lot here during the day, and it can be warm enough to sit out in the porch, but there’s nothing like toasting ourselves in front of the log fire during chilly evenings.

We recently went shopping to Albox and it’s funny when you see people in shorts and tee shirts in the middle of January, while we’re in fleeces and thick trousers. You immediately think ‘Mm….they’re visitors from the UK or northern Europe. We were the same when we first moved here, but gradually acclimatised.

Well it’s been 3 ½ years since we moved here, and Mike and I have actually chosen a name for our house. We had lots of suggestions given to us, but nothing seemed right. So what did we settle on? Casa Blanca. Yes we have a white house, and also Casablanca is my all-time favourite film. Couldn’t be better. I think it’s the longest time we’ve taken over any decision! It only took us 8 months to meet and marry and that was 43 years ago. Ah well….!

I’m revising the manuscript for my proposed new book on God and life. It’s called ’The Unwritten Contract’ and I’ve been taking it a bit at a time. The end of 2018 set me back a bit, but I do love to prepare for Christmas properly, and God understands just as long as I don’t lose sight of my work.
I hope to find a publisher over the coming months. This has been my spiritual work for 20 years now and there’s so much information to bring the reader, I have to get it out there, because I have other books to write, and people to talk to.

Fairies at the bottom of our garden


Fairies at the Bottom of our Garden

Actually they’re all around the garden and the surrounding countryside.

These little spirit energies are everywhere and come under the title of elementals or earth angels.
It was during my work with Jesus that he introduced me to the power of the elementals and told me of their important energies.

 I’ve probably now upset a few Christians as well as those who believe in the fairies folk but not God.But the truth is they belong in the same world, and if you can open your mind to that, life can be richer.

Jesus was a healer and leader without barriers, and he had far more wisdom to share than certainly I realised. He’s guided me since the 9th May 1999, and I’ve reaped a rich harvest of blessed information since then.

He also inspired me to produce the Woodland Wisdom Cards, providing a message and detailed descriptions of each character’s appearance and personality, and I think it brought them alive.

Inspirational Wisdom from Angels and Fairies
Cheerful angels and fairies deliver wisdom, healing energy and loving guidance to help you rediscover passion and joy in your life. You will find inspiration in the dreamy artwork with empowering exercises, prayers and affirmations. The illustrated booklet provides deeper insights for restoring mind/body/spirit balance.

Children and people of all ages, especially those young at heart, will enjoy cricket concerts, carousels, and garden parties in this magical world of the imagination. Choose a card each day from the colourful 45-card deck for a joyful image and affirmation. Explore the 52-page booklet for delightful messages sure to energise and inspire you.

Available from Amazon and other bookstores


Fairies, Elves and many other elementals do exist. Don’t doubt it. They’re very capable of boosting your energies when you need it, and Elves help you to focus on important tasks. Zany? No, these little Earth Angels were created by the Angels, and their energies are powerful and can help you a great deal. They’re a beautiful part of God’s team, and I often ask for their help.

As well as helping us directly, fairies also care for areas of wildlife and the health of pastures, cultivated fields and everywhere there is life or a need for it, so the more organic we become and natural in our production in our husbandry of plant life and animals, the more we can help them and reap the reward for ourselves. You may see small coloured orbs, you can even find these lovely balls of energy on photographs, so get snapping.

On a Helpful Note
If you have a garden, you’ll have fairies there as well as in your home. Ask them for a bit of help when you have a boring job to do. With me it’s the ironing. Also, ensure there’s some water for the fairies outside and some shelter. They do need a place to rest, and a refuge in bad weather. They also need water to refresh them so that insects and birds can see them. Fairies work closely with angels and they help the Earth’s energies too.

Welcome the fairies to your garden.

Beautiful Apricot Jam

By early last week, one of our apricot trees was covered in ripe fruit, and with the high winds we were experiencing, some was falling off! ...
