Welcome to our life change journey

Hi ! Let us introduce oursleves ~ Donna 'mama', Genaveve 4, and Summer-Rain 2, 'Dovein'. This is the story of our lives and where it is taking us now. The 'now' (the change) is what is exciting and limitless in possibilities.
The purpose of this journey and the reasons why it is transpiring, I believe, will be aligned with many other people who may often feel like, just, 'surviving' another day in the chaos of the world rather than 'inspirationally' living it.
Experiment ~ Living in a 3 bedroom rental home @ $380 per week with too much stuff, a back yard without shade and lawns to mow, domestics galore and bills I cannot keep up with, VS; Travelling around 'Australia' in a 'Toyota Hiace Commuter Van', (fitted as a campervan), a wished for, sponsored, 'Camper Trailer' (DONE~ Ok, not sponsored but universally provided at a great price) , and our lives consolidated into several 15 litre containers !
Leave Date: August 2010

Soul Aligned Business Collaborative

I am currently doing the above course with a lady called Elyse Hope Killoran via live tele conferencing. It is such an incredible reminder and a powerful connector of the individual to their higher self and the souls' life purpose that it can only achieve results of positivity, productivity, sustainability and energised flow in ones life and business.

I thank the universal timing of this course for me in my life at this time and am truly grateful for the benefits this is creating in the gaining of my own personal strength, confidence and trust in myself to be able to create my own success and financial independent flow for me and my girls.

"So it is"

Practising the 'ARTS' theory !

At the end of a day that began as fairly productive and motivating, I was left reflecting on myself and my abilities once again in regards to coping and parenting. Within the hours of a day I cannot fathom how many emotions a person can roller coaster through !

I am going to try and practise daily, the art of the 'arts' ! 'Affirming, Releasing, Trusting and Surrendering' and see if this will help me ride through an overwhelming day with more ease.

Getting back on track

Was strongly guided at 5am to do the 'master cleanse' today (3rd time for me) and get back on track in releasing the old habbits, patterns and behavious that have been creeping back into my life for all sorts of reasonings. I now ask the universe to support this 10 day process in releasing all addictions and co-dependencies breathing back into my life optimum health, radiance, energy and self-love.

Will keep you posted ~ I feel strong and determined to achieve this and know this is necessary to support my ultimate journey and purpose.

Domestic Volcanoes

Another day in the life of exploding domestic volcanoes ! This morning the girls have got into 2 containers of tissue salts and eaten them like lollies, drawn all over the lounge with pink pen and tipped juice all over the lounge, floor and books. It is in these moments that I question my domestic capabilities and whether or not I should have gone to a 'domestic training school' as I struggle in keeping up with this area of my life of which in turn impacts all areas of my life, self esteem, how I parent and how frustrated I get.

I have no idea whether or not going on the road and living in a tent will change how much this controls my life but I am praying it does as I know this area alone will drastically reduce my stress.

It is now midday, Summer-Rain has had a sleep and mama some time out so we are back on a happy track and will all domestically 'attempt' some cleaning and sorting together so we can be treated with an afternoon campervan adventure.

Support and Gratitude for Geoff and Bess

I am so grateful and feel very blessed to have been acknowledged, congratulated and supported on my journey by Geoff and Bess from the 'The Life Change Experiment'. It was such an exciting moment of discovery when I was guided to their website and felt so aligned with their entire journey as I was beginning mine ! I soooooo want my teeny 'Toyota Hiace') compared to the winnebago ! lols !) on a road towing a camper trailer tent and going over a hill for my video series as well ~ LOVE IT !

Thank-You for your amazing leaps of faith and trust and facing an unbelievable amount of fear that is connected to really letting go and being such an inspirational guiding light for our journey X

Transparent moments of truth

Something I committed to during this process !

I am sitting here, kind of feeling like I need some kind of support, help, guidelines, communication, anything ~ however, the reality is that most other people are overwhelmingly just as busy, nor have the energy or time to give it when you feel sometimes you really need it most. So..... where does that leave the 'little world' of mine that I am at least in ? Pretty much on my own and assessing my own reality of what it is I truly want !

An interesting realisation for me (the day after writing this) is in light of what I had been 'trying' to practise from the previous post 'less communication' ~ and once again I have to reflect on how unbelievably the universe supports what you put out there ! 

I guess, the reality of my purpose and journey is to make a change that will reflect a different dynamic for both me and my daughters in living in the world of today.

I truly hope from this journey I can connect a sense of what is 'truer' to be 'really' living in this incredilble world of wondersous souls that wish to connect, for the 'higher good' of the planet and 'ourselves'.

Yesterday was a good day and today I practise something new !

The sudocream day turned out to be a good news day for both Genaveve and myself. Genaveve does not need to have a surgery (tonsils out) I was stressing about ~ yay ! A surgery that I need to have that was on a 12mth waiting list (Cholesteatoma) is being pushed up so it can happen before we go around Australia ~ Thanks to my amazing ENT. So Genaveve and I have swapped surgeries and this for me is a 'good day'. Thank-You angels and the universe.

Today and beyond I have been guided to not be the communicator and the one who keeps in contact with all my friends and family. It will be very interesting to see how long actually goes by before anyone calls as I am the one who usually and naturally just keeps everyone posted, updated and connected to our lives.  I also feel it will be supportive for me to focus on what needs to be done with fewer distractions. It will also be an important process for the trip ahead as the chatting, catching up, pat or cry on the shoulder types of chats will be considerably reduced as we explore, meet new people and change the way we want to live. It is another way of letting go of co-dependency for me.

Will keep you posted on this.

Oh No ! Does it ever end .....

I do not know if I am going to get the chance to even get out of here ! My beautiful and creative artist, Miss 2, has decided to paint herself and the 'big plush lounge' (that I mentioned in another post of which that time had been pee peed on) with a whole tub of sudocream (zinc cream) Grrrrrr ~ I 'was' trying to sell this lounge. I am breathing, breathing, breathing and trusting, trusting, trusting !

Progress towards 6week challenge is seriously at a stand still with no washing machine and a house that is like a graffitied Mt Everest ! BUT, I still do trust .....

Little progress

Coming from the bathroom where I have just discovered my meditatively quite 2yr old tactiley squeezing the contents of an entire tube of toothpaste into a cup and creatively painting herself and the bathroom surfaces, along with 'the border' who has made no attempt at packing anything 5 weeks after I have given him notice ~ truly tests the capacity for remaining present to 'trust' and 'divine order' . As I walk around and over growing mountains of 'stuff' in the home,  I'm sure mountains don't grow at this pace, I can only send a wish out to the universe and the divine powers that be, to please find another place for 'the border' to release the space in my double garage so I can truly begin the 'active' process of sorting and clearing.

The 6week challenge

Can I realistically begin our travel journey experiment in 6weeks ? This is what I will need to accomplish to make this happen:

1) Get a border out to clear energy and space
2) Have Genaveves tonsils assessed by ENT and maybe taken out
3) Get a new washing machine from company under which it is still in warranty
4)   Sort through my entire life (scariest is paperwork) ~ categorizing into what we need to take, what we really need to keep to store, and what to sell or giveaway
5) Advertise and conduct a garage sale
4) Find a storage shed '3x3', good price, not an easy feat and a way to move items there
6) Sort all my mothers stuff that I am storing whilst she is in rehab, sell what she does not want and store the rest with mine
7) Find extra money to repair all van needs, alternator, leaking tailgate, rust etc
8) Find the money for a trailer, camper trailer tent preferable best option
9) Repair and nurture back yard from an attempted garden, swimming pool imprint and a mountain of items just hanging out there alone
10)  Clean, scrub, shine and repair all rental housing needs for inspection
11) Get my blog out into the world and my process further universally supported

HA ! There you have it and I am positive I have missed other things that will need to be done.

6weeks from today = the 30th April, 2010.

Today I am practising 'action' minus the 're-action' and boy does the universe like to challenge you when you make personal comittments of growth.

There has been extra wee wees on big plush lounge (that I need to sell) and floor, unbelievable creations of mess and a washing machine that is still in warranty but now into it's 2nd week of disrepair ! Ha ~ can only laugh and assess my percentage of action - reaction, I am at about 75% not tooooo bad, and keeping me very aware !

"Arrrr" ~ reminders of 'WHY', I am doing this !

"Everywhere I go, there is a mess in tow" This sentence was coming out as a song as I was trying to describe this entry. Since making the tentative decision to really do this there have been confirmative signs all over the place.
