Addicted and I love it πŸ’•

Well, what can I say? Promising that I won’t buy anymore orchids till spring is really pointless. It’s time to face my addiction and… make peace with it 🀣 There is nothing that can possibly be done about it, so I’ll just accept the part of me who is not able to say ‘no’ to an orchid and go buy some more 🀣

Yes, I bought more orchids. They were just Β£4 each and I used excuse to give them away to friends and family πŸ™„ Well, that was initial plan at least.

And indeed, one of them (yellow) has already found a new home as my sis in law fell in love with it. I must admit it was impulsive of me, as while cleaning it today I found out it actually has a delicate scent to it! It smells like banana to me 🀣 But it might be just my super sensitive nose. Ohh well, Kasia is gonna love it πŸ’•

The rest… hmm, lets say I found some room for them πŸ˜‰ Part of the reason why I wasn’t going to buy more orchids was space. Another part is that I found spring as the best time for most orchids to be repotted and also those converted to s/h in spring have had best results in adjusting to new media.

Well… the fact that I’m currently in England and most of my orchids are in Holland made it somehow easier to find space 🀣 Coupled with brilliant idea I came up with this morning:

And yes… these little plants on the windowsill, looking suspiciously like orchids are orchids indeed πŸ™„ I have secretly bought some more back in Holland, but as I didn’t have ID’s for any of them to start with, I didn’t introduce them yet. More posts to follow, as I managed to identify 2 of them πŸ€“

Also my dear friend Nunzia, who was lucky enough to find some beautiful orchids last year (I’m showing them in this post) sadly had not much luck with them and also not much time for them with the new job. I’ve ‘inherited’ 6 of her orchids. Sadly some of them will most likely die, as they have big health issues, but I’ll write some more about them in the next post.

The second ‘issue’ I had I solved by… just not repotting them 🀣 I’ve cleaned them up the best I can for now, I disinfected the area I can get to with Hydrogen Peroxide, so now I’ll just enjoy the blooms for a while and move them to s/h in spring.

Ohh… and tomorrow I’m going to this:

Let’s hope they only have some boring orchids, all of which I already own 🀣🀣🀣 (as if this was possible!). Well, at least I can hope they’ll be super expensive πŸ˜‰

Where is my home?

It’s kinda weird. Feels like I’ve lost my identity. I go back to England and call it home, I go back to Poland and call it home, then I while I’m here I say I’m going back home in x number of days.

Is my home anywhere I go or is it nowhere at all? Right now my temporary home is at my friend’s house. Purely because another ‘friend’ who was living in my property while I was away and was going to vacate it when I’m back is refusing to do so.

A positive side in this situation is that I get to spend a lot of time with my real friend – Tina. I also get time to look after her orchids and assist her with purchasing new ones πŸ˜‰

We drove around garden centres and diy stores in search of leca for the past few days and I realised I’ve been rather lucky in Netherlands, as I can find them in many shops and in all sizes. In England we finally found a big 20L bag in Homebase. That’s way too much than what we need, but at least we have found it.

Of course they also had Phalaenopsis orchids on sale. My friend sadly lost her mother’s day orchid due to crown rot and needed something pretty to cheer her up.

We picked these 2 beauties for her:

They both have several stems and a lot of buds to open, so they’ll be keeping Tina happy for a while ☺️

We’ll also leave repotting them at least until we repot the remaining 9 πŸ˜‰

At our next stop – B&Q – we also ‘accidentally’ stumbled across Β£2 past flowering Phalaenopsis orchids. We looked through them, but I guess both of us have a good collection of these already, so we left them be. Tina however couldn’t walk past white Dendrobium Nobile, as she hasn’t got any of these yet. Lucky for us, one of them had a pot missing, so we managed to get it half price ☺️

My orchid addiction goes further than I could imagine even last year. Seems like buying them with/for friends and family is just as satisfying as buying them for myself ☺️

BTW… the mini Phal I purchased for Tina last February is no longer in bloom, but it’s looking rather healthy and we will be transitioning it together with her other orchids into semi-hydro soon ☺️

It’s not my fault!

Seriously… I didn’t buy anymore orchids.

My dad bought me 2 πŸ˜‚

While I visited my parents back in Poland, I went shopping to Auchan with dad. We were meant to buy a ceramic frying pan for my mum and a little pillow. We purchased these too πŸ˜‰

First we went to Leroy Merlin, as I spent 2 hours there the day before searching for some rescue needing orchids (that’s where I found my Liodoro last year), maybe some fruit bushes for my balcony, as raspberries and wild strawberries are doing great. I haven’t found any discounted orchids though, just couple of fertilisers and some veggies seeds. They did have some big Phalaenopsis of unusual colours at some stupid prices. Mum saw some blue ones in a local supermarket and said that they were probably artificially coloured, but dad laughed at her. Today I wanted to show him exactly the points where they injected a cheap food dye into these orchids flower spikes to achieve these stunning colours.

One injection to double (or more) the price of the most normal white Phalaenopsis! I actually have 2 of these died blue and orange. I have however bought them for around Β£3 or less, as the flowers were towards the end of their lives I was also fully aware that I am buying an artificially coloured plant. It must be quite a disappointment for someone who got one of these for double the price, only to find out that it’s a white phal upon its next flowering season.

Ahh… why do I even bother? Most people don’t buy these plants to keep them for years. I remember the reason why I bought the first Phalaenopsis for my friends. I was going to their wedding and decided that instead of cut flowers which they will get tons of and will throw them away a few days later, I will get her a flower which they will enjoy maybe to couple of months. That’s the general idea I think. Hence why you can barely find a good, healthy plant in a supermarket.

Enough moaning though. At Leroy dad already spotted White Dendrobium Nobile and wanted to buy it for me, but I refused, as it was overpriced and my friend back in uk already has one like this with many keiki’s to be removed, so I’m hoping to get one upon my next visit to her ☺️

After I showed dad that mum was right about artificially coloured orchids we went to actually buy the stuff we came here for. Who would however predict that there would be an orchid stand right next to the pillows?

Well… Surprisingly there were more Dendrobiums there, white as well as pink with white and at much more reasonable price, so this time I didn’t refuse dad’s offer to get me one of these. It has a gentle, but beautiful scent to it 😍

Unfortunately a few days in the Polish heat wave of daily 35 degrees Celsius cause my poor thing to loose most of its flowers 😞

By the time I was leaving Poland all flowers were gone. As much as I would love to enjoy them for longer, it turned out to be a great time to repot it into semi-hydro right after I came back home.

I was slightly surprised at the amount and a very good condition of the roots:

With such an abundance of roots and 2 new growths, I’m expecting this Den to be my first success story for Dendrobiums in general and their transition to s/h.

But behold… this is not the end πŸ˜‰ I also managed to spot the only scented Phal there 😍 I picked it up, as it had unusually coloured and spotted leaves, but after I put my nose inside the protective foil I realised it has a lovely scent to it! I did check all the other mini’s in search of another one, but there was just this one and I had to have it ☺️

It’s such a cute little Phal. Its only down side is that it has a terminal spike coming from the crown. I can only enjoy the little fragrant blooms for a little while and then hope for some keiki’s. This far I had quite a few, but never managed to keep them alive on any mini Phal. Let’s hope this will be another first of a kind success story…

Turns out that 1 orchid purchased for my dad has multiplied itself by 4 ☺️

Give more and get more peeps! 😍

Meet my new scented orchids – Miltonidium Renaissance and Zygopetalum Trozy Blue

It’s official – I’m an Orchid addict!

Literally 1 day after Patrick’s mum got me the beautiful Phals from the previous post I went shopping and somehow came back home with 2 new orchids πŸ™ˆ

I know, I know. I said I shouldn’t be buying any more new orchids for the time being.

But they were super cheap and seriously… you just can’t find these at every trip to the supermarket. You barely see anything else but Phalaenopsis and since I my Phal Liodoro ‘Sweet memory’ bloomed for the first time I just knew I need some more scented orchids in my life ☺️

So without further delay, let me introduce these 2 beauties:

Miltonidium Renaissance

This beauty was the reason why this post took so long. I just couldn’t find an ID for it. As it came with Inca label I checked their website first, where I quickly identified Zygo, but couldn’t find one which looked exactly like this.

I also posted pictures on orchids groups and asked some youtubers for help in identifying it and although their help got me somehow closer to finding the answer, eventually I found out that it is a relatively new variety, hence why the ‘struggle’ πŸ˜‰

Eventually I found a picture of an orchid on different website and it was labelled as Orchid Le Boudoir. I sent and email with an enquiry and a nice lady Carolien explained that they give their orchids fancy name on their website, but the correct ID for my orchid is as above – Miltonidium Renaissance.

It might have taken long to find a proper ID for it, but I believe it is crucial to do the homework, as now I’m able to find more tips on how to care for my new orchid.

Apart from it’s flowers standing out in my Phalaenopsis dominated apartment, this orchid smells like a hyacinth and for a sensitive nose like mine its scent fills the room pretty much all day long. Although if you ask Patrick he can’t smell anything πŸ˜‰

Upon closer inspection I found a snail shell in its pot, so I decided to risk and repot both of them the very same day.

It had quite a few skinny roots:

Most of them unfortunately were munched or rotten, so after I finished cleaning it, there were maybe 2 still alive, which I sprayed with hydrogen peroxide 3% to make sure the snail eggs won’t survive. I potted it in slightly smaller container with tiny clay pebbles and a small addition of sphagnum moss at the top to hopefully encourage some new roots production.

I can’t really tell how is it doing at this very moment, as I’ve not been at home the past few days, but 8 days after repotting it was still happily flowering, next to my Oncidessa Sweet Sugar:

That’s more than I can tell about the second one of them πŸ˜”

Zygopetalum Trozy Blue

As soon as Patrick saw these unusual flowers he announced that this is now his favourite! It’s clearly not the luckiest year for my Harlequin Phal Agnieszka. Not only she got sunburned and found out she’s no longer the only Harlequin in my collection, now she has also been dethroned, as this was Patt’s favourite until now.

After I removed my new Zygo from its pot it turned out it had a massive and healthy root system:

Of course after noticing the snails in the other pot I rushed into repotting without reading more about it. Later I found out that Zygo’s roots are very fragile and I managed to damage quite a few of them indeed. It was one of the longest repotting sessions this far, as the media was super difficult to detach from the roots.

The new home for it is a pot of the same size as the one it came with and also a mixture of clay pebbles and sphagnum moss. I know some people will not agree with mixing these two, but in my head it all makes sense πŸ˜‚

Most of my orchids are now converted to semi-hydroponics, which should only consist of an inorganic media like clay pebbles. Some of them however are slightly ‘customised’. Contrary to the original design I don’t keep a reservoir of water for all of them at all times. I let my most of my phals dry out a bit after their watering day and some of the pots (like these 2 new additions) get a bit of sphagnum moss mixed in. My mini phal for example grew 6 juicy green new roots in this mixture, so I experiment with it every now and then πŸ˜‰

Back to my Zygopetalum though… Unlike the first of the new orchids, which wasn’t bothered by repotting at all, this poor thing lost flower after flower and just before I left to Poland it was left with flowerless spike and 2 yellow leaves.

What can I say? Patt was rather disappointed and I’m a tiny bit sad as well. I forgot to mention that it has a heavenly sweet scent too!

Nethertheless I still have my gorgeously scented Miltonidium and I can only keep my fingers crossed that Zygo will get used to his new home and eventually will reward me with some new growth and blooms ☺️

PS. The beautiful Phalaenopsis I bought for my dad has multiplied even more 😳 More updates soon!

Orchid abundance day!

Ohh my! I’m just overflowing with gratitude today 😍

So yesterday I went shopping to Hoogvliet and these 2 beauties have stolen my heart:

Technically speaking I should not buy anymore orchids for myself at this time, but hey – what’s stopping me for getting a beautiful orchid as a belated birthday gift for my dad, as it just happens that I go to Poland next week?

So I stopped by the flower division for good 10 minutes pondering which one to buy. First one would be my first choice as I’ve never seen one like this, but on the second one the flowers are so huge! Dad would absolutely love them.

I inspected the roots and as the 1st one had a few dodgy ones, I decided to buy the 2nd one for my dad. After all, I want him to enjoy the plant for years to come, so getting the healthy one is my main objective.

So here she is… An piece of awesomeness created by combined effort of nature and people:

But behold! That’s not where the story ends.

This morning I woke up with a stomach ache, took a bunch of painkillers and soon after this I got slightly disappointing news. Of course, the easiest thing to do would be to get more upset and let it ruin my day. Instead I looked at the beautiful flower I bought for my dad, imagined how happy he will be to have it and thought to myself that I should rather continue doing small good things for others and the goodness always eventually comes back.

Oh my! This time it came back multiplied!

Maybe an hour later Patrick’s mum whatsapped me with the pictures of exact same orchids I’ve been pondering to buy yesterday! I was rather shocked by the inconspicuous fact that she actually spotted the same ones I did and thought of me. Even more so… 10 minutes later she arrived at our doorstep with not 1, but 2 beautiful orchids for me! I was blown away and hugged her every 2 minutes saying how happy and grateful I am and that she actually made my day.

So I’m laying on my sofa with these 3 beauties in my view:

I know, I know… I already have the middle one. It’s another Agnieszka ☺️ However, I have repotted Agnieszka into semi hydro last month and soon after it I left it out on the balcony, where I gathered she will have a better conditions to recover after repotting. It’s nice and warm there and air circulation much better than in the house. Instead she got even more stressed, as June’s sun burned it’s beautiful big leaf. I tried to keep it more shaded over the next few days, but she only seemed to deteriorate and she’s about to loose 2 leaves πŸ˜’

So she’s now back indoors and I’m hoping she can still recover. The silver lining here is that if she won’t I already have a replacement, as I love the spotted harlequin-type orchids and I didn’t like the thought of not having one. If however she will recover I might consider planting both of them in arrangement and when both of them bloom at the same time it will be a truly spectacular view 🀩

PS. Another hour later my old boss phoned me back to say he’ll check if there will be a spot for me for the end of August in the company I worked at last year. All in all I think it’s an awesome start of the day ☺️

Home, sweet home

Last month for the first time since I moved to Netherlands, Patrick came with me for a trip… back home.

Who would have thought that I will be calling England my home? Even though I was born and spent 23 years of my life in Poland, I call England my home? Well… it’s not quite so drastic. I guess when I go back to Poland I also feel at home. I also think that 12 years of my life spent in England were quite significant. I guess being in Netherlands also feels so much not like home, that going back to England puts things into perspective. After all, my house, garden, car, friends and salsa family are all in England. My work life is also there. Driving on the left side of the road is my default. Even though I learnt to drive and passed my driving test in Poland, where we drive on the right side, but 1 or 2 years of driving there, can not compare to 12 years of daily, often over hour long commute and countless salsa trips in England.

Surroundings are familiar, shops sell things I want to buy and are open even at night, which is my favourite, traffic-free time of shopping. There are friends waiting for my visit in whichever direction I wish to drive and salsa parties full of friendly faces (both female and male) and of course good music.

Having Patrick with me was rather special. He had a chance to meet and spend time with my friends and enjoy abundance of good parties and attention πŸ˜‰ Needless to say we had quite a trip!

It started from 5 star salsa congress in London. Exactly the same one where we’ve met 2 years before. We arrived on Thursday, so we had time to do some shopping for the weekend and visit my house. Yes, strangely I wasn’t sleeping at my house this time round, as my friend is currently occupying my living room, where I usually stay during my visits in England.

5 star… ahh… so good to be back. So many friendly faces, so many awesome dances, so many funny moments and… so much attention for Patrick πŸ˜‚ All my friends are super-curious about the man who stole my heart and stole me from them. Ladies were queueing to be introduced and/or taste his skills on the dance floor. Guys surprisingly also wanted to be around this cool guy who smokes with the stars πŸ˜‚ Even after his short visits during the year of our long distance relationship, he already gained some female and male fans back in England. I guess now he has doubled or tripled the amount. Needless to say, we had an eventful weekend at 5 star and on Monday, totally exhausted we drove back to Southampton.

My good friend Nunzia was kind enough to let us stay for a week in her beautiful house. Added bonus – we got to enjoy a dinner she prepared for us and meet her new boyfriend. In return (or rather for my own pleasure) I looked after quite a few of her orchids, as due to her super-hectic schedule she was barely at home during the week we spent at her house.

These are the most recent purchases of hers:

Quite a few of nice varieties of not so common orchids here, including fussy Miltoniopsis. Not something you can usually find at your grocery store for sure (except 2 purple/white Phalaenopsis). I guess all orchid lovers, even the just starting ones already have or seen these for sale. Unfortunately the only label they had was ‘cambria orchid’ which is a commercial name for a group of orchids, but doesn’t really give you a proper identification for each one of them.

Still… I would rather make an effort to ID my orchids and pay Β£5 instead of buying one at the garden centre where the price with the ID would be probably Β£15 and up. Sure, the plants found at the garden centre are most likely in better health, but let’s face it – anything other than Phalaenopsis I don’t really have any experience with care, so starting with a cheaper ones is at the moment a better option for me. With this in mind I went to the shop where Nunzia found these cuties, but unfortunately they had no orchids at that time. Ohh well… maybe another time.

I also found pictures of 2 of her older Phals, which always amaze me with an abundance of flowers. The purple one of course was still in bloom during our visit. Is seems to never stop flowering!

After fun, but exhausting weekend of salsa congress, we’ve been recovering and dealing with my house related things like repairing fence, some shopping and gardening and I also had a chance of meeting my house cleaner – nice Polish girl Kasia.

As the next weekend was approaching, so our schedule become more hectic. On Friday I made a trip to Ikea in search of some new, hopefully unusual orchids, like the Nelly Isler which I found there in February, but yet again it turned out no to be my time. I couldn’t leave with empty hands though, so I treated myself to 2 mini Phalaenopsis, 1 of which I was planning to give to Tina. Not sure how I managed not to take a picture of both of them together, but I guess I’ll have to take one of Tina’s upon my next visit.

Here are a few snaps of the one which stayed with me though:

Surprisingly it has a very faint flowery fragrance to it. Quite unusual for Phalaenopsis hybrids. The pictures are also taken after the holiday and ’emergency’ repotting. I know… I should probably wait until the flowers drop, but as it’s Phals growing season and the root system looked rather poorly, I decided to get on with it as soon as I got back to Netherworlds. Luckily for me, not even 1 flower dropped after the transition to semi-hydro.

Friday was rather busy. After shopping we went to Winchester to visit Steve and Ramona, which literally just finished upgrading their new house. P really liked them both and it would be super nice to spend more time with them, however I’ve already made arrangements to visit my brother, so after rather short visit we continued our road trip to Oxford.

Surprise, surprise! My bro’s gf Kasia, is also an orchid lover. I don’t think I took any pictures of her plants this time round, but I’ll make sure to introduce her beauties here upon my next visit in the fall, when I will also be helping her with repotting. This time round I had to of course ‘inspect’ all of them and give a few growing tips. One could think I’m a not-so-local orchid adviser for all my orchid loving friends and family πŸ˜‰

As usual, we had great laugh with my brother and his family and their daughter Kaja even started talking to Patrick in English after she could get no more attention from me πŸ˜‚

Of course we couldn’t miss out on catching up with Tina during our uk trip. After all she’s kinda our cupid πŸ˜‰ She was the one believing from the start that Patrick and I are made for each other, while I was doubting any continuation. She couldn’t attend 5 star this year and unfortunately a full on visit was not ideal, as P is allergic to cats and Tinny has quite a few of them. So we decided to pick her up on our way to Alchemy Social on Saturday.

Of course she was in love with her new, purple mini ‘baby’ as she called her gift. And of course not a minute is boring when Tina is around.

Alchemy Social also never disappoints. We had an awesome time with my Alchemy family and tons of great dancers from near and far plus added bonus of superb Alchemy music. Patrick probably got more female attention during 10 days spent in uk than he usually gets in a year’s worth of parties back in Netherlands. Let’s face it – besides the fact that my friends were curious about him, English people in general are much more open and friendly and therefore even the ladies I didn’t know before Saturday were queueing up for him. I think from now on it’ll be easier to convince him to join me on my uk trips ☺️

Needless to say, we didn’t really look forward to our road trip back ‘home’ on Sunday. We were rather grumpy and of course we had to hit some bad traffic which extended our journey by almost 2 hours.

Ehh… Bye bye home. Till next time…

3 years after…

As I refreshed the idea of going back to blogging, I dug up my old blog, which I created as a part of assignment during my participation in 2014 MKMMA program.

Wow! It’s hard to believe that it’s been 3 years since I completed (or shall I say started) my hero’s journey. I started from updating myΒ About me page to briefly reflect some of the changes.

I must say that reading some of my old posts brought back some of the excitement and urge for productivity I felt back then. It also made me ponder about how the participation in the program affected my life. Without the shadow of a doubt I can say the changes are nothing but positive.

First of all, I do not spend my days at work anymore. Well… There are some vague plans of returning to uk and to work, but truly temporary, for a maximum of 4 months. That’s mainly to build up some savings and possibly make some investments into my house in England. I’d say that’s a big progress already from where I was 3 years ago.

Second (but not less important) I have found my true love! No kidding πŸ˜‚ Not that it was a priority back in 2015, but somehow the longing for a real connection developed stronger later and… it still caught me by surprise when I found it! More so, I actually found him on the dance floor at MamboCity 5 star salsa congress, so yes, he’s also a salsa dancer 😍 Not only he ticks all the boxes, but some that I haven’t even imagined he could! No wonder I left my uk life behind and moved to live with him in Netherlands.

Thirdly, I actually have all the time in the word to do what I have always wanted to do and… Yes, surprisingly I don’t do much with it 😏 I guess going back to blogging has an underlying goal of starting to do some of the things I dreamt of doing. I guess I’m hoping, that pouring my soul publicly, here, on my blog will give me the kick to do more than just playing games most of the day.

Thinking about what I want to do with my life, I thought I would spend my days dancing and exercising more, meditating more, writing more, growing beautiful flowers in my house and garden… Ups! I have left my garden in uk and now I have 2 balconies and a very limited indoor space for my orchids and other house plants. I guess from the list above, this actually stays true. I do spend lots of my time caring, learning about and experimenting with my orchids. Effects are various πŸ˜‚ One could say my orchids used to grow better when I cared less for them. Or that the new home doesn’t suit them as much as my beloved house in uk. Or… maybe they’re still in the adjustment period after the move. Well, the result is, that although some of my Phalaenopsis’s have re-bloomed in the new house, they have a maximum of 3 flowers.

Like this beauty here. I absolutely love the spotty patterns, which are completely random from 1 flower to another. I got it from my beloved Polish friend and I often refer to it as Agnieszka, which is my friend’s name. It will be 2 years in July, since I received it and behold this is the 3rd time (including initial bloom) it is in bloom ❀️ Ok… this is actually a secondary spike from the second bloom. The primary spike also had maybe 3-4 flowers.

The first bloom however, was much more impressive:

The spike was long enough to train it along the arch and it had at least 8 beautiful, massive flowers. That’s how it arrived to me and although I know they have much more knowledge and resources to achieve this effect in the nurseries, I do hope to achieve a similar effect in the future.

So here it is. I was wondering in which direction will this blog take me and the answer became clear almost from the start. It will be my orchid diary ☺️ I always liked looking back at the pictures of my plants from years ago and turns out here is actually the perfect spot to document my plants journey.

Week 24 Commencement

A bit late to write about commencement week, which was a week ago, but I just had to share…
A lot of people were affraid of this journey comming to an end. I can’t say I was one of them. Sentiment – yes, but not worry. I knew this wasn’t going to be an end. We all have come to far to go back to our old lifes. We all have new blueprint build inside us and there is no way back. Who would possibly all of the sudden stopped all the readings, sit, gratitude cards, masterminding after 6 months of drilling these tiny habits into our lifes? Well… Definitely not me πŸ˜€ I love all the positive changes in my life which are results of these tiny habbits. And as we finished our last (was it 4 hrs?!), extremely positive and uplifting webinar, with lots of inspiring stories from those who shared, our journey has not finished… It has trully started! We have been introduced to continuation option (lifetime membership) and invited to join the team as guides. Sadly I don’t think I can make such a time commitement to seriously consider becoming a guide, but lifetime membership is not a question. Who wouldnt want to discover lost chapters of MKS and continue to be a part of this wonderful mastermind alliance? I definitely do.

What can I say… With every day and every week I realize more and more that I am an architect of my own life. The seeds I’ve planted in the freshly raked soil of my fertile subconscious mind are showing first leafs and some flowers πŸ˜€ New opporunities are appearing in my life one after another and soon it will be the time to harvest the crops…

Today, I begin a new life…
I must confess… I jumped out of bed, shouting ‘Thank you’ this morning! And carried on downstairs singing how greatfull I am to wake up and see the sunshine 😊
I’ve always been a bit crazy, but things like that didn’t quite happen in my life before I joined MKMMA!

Week 23 Harmony

Last week, comparing to weeks before seemed rather quiet.
Thats been said… I think the better way to describe it is harmonious.
Yes. Last week and weekend and Monday drive to work was just harmonious. Things just get done so nice and smooth, that none of it really stands out for me. But the reality is, that in this harmony, bits of my DMP continuosly manifest themself. Like my lounge which weekend by weekend takes the shape of the one from my dream or actually looks better than in my dream 😊 And the people who appear to help me with getting it done. I mean… What are the odds, when you pick up the phone number from random website in uk, that the person who appears to repair your boiler turns out to be polish (like me) and tells you whats wrong with the boiler, what part to get and how to change it and doesn’t take any money for it? Well… I don’t believe in coincidents anymore. Miracles on the other side are all around us πŸ’•
I must say… It was probably the first week when I actually read MKS every day. Usually one odd day during the week my read and sit just doesnt happen for various reasons. I guess I just really enjoyed reading part 24 and also want to finish strong 😊
Another thing… I mentioned I havent been late to work for over a month now. See on Monday, I left home nearly 10 mins later than usual. I thought to myself I might actually end up late today. Somehow I didnt get that rush of emotions of stress when I realize I might be late. I just thought… well, I’m leaving later than usual, but I can’t change anything now, so I will just get there when I get there. Driving to work and getting slightly stuck in usual place I remembered the quote I saw on fb the other day

20150324-202627.jpg
So I carried on listening to my recordings and looking at the cars around me thinking ‘We are all one. I hope we can all make it’. No stress, no nervous looks at the clock, just harmony. When I actually looked at the clock, I shouted to myself ‘WOW!’ I will be way before time again! How on earth did that happen?!
Of course I know how. We all in MKMMA do know and understand by now that we are creators of our own destiny and that feelings give vitality to our thoughts. I guess I must have felt loving, harmonius and happy during my drive to work as this is what I manifested πŸ’•
