Building Sand Castles

Hi, this is the chapter I wrote for ‘In The Spirit of Success’ a Hay House America & Inspired Spirit Australia joint publishing.  Other authors include Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer to inspire and uplift!

Like building sandcastles in the sand, some things we just do because it leads to a better life.  No one is going to pay us, promote us, or perhaps even notice, yet we do it because something inside us gives us the idea, and we teach our children to do it still.

I was born into challenging circumstances.

My safety was jeopardized by members of my immediate family on a regular basis, but to all outside appearances it was a respectable and functioning family that visited church at Christmas.

I was pushed downstairs, punched, had rubberbands fired at me, was tormented endlessly, tortured, called “god ugly worthless child” and considered too ugly to be alive.

Not permitted to speak, even for the purpose of learning how, and told to keep out of sight because I was intolerable to look at, gave me enormous time for self contemplation, questioning and analysis.

I relied on – and was arguably raised by – a mystery inner guidance, as one helpful sugestion after another entered my thought space.  I depended upon this guidance to keep me safe, as I received instructions on when and where to move about the house unharmed.  I came to realize I was not alone at all.

Sure enough, when a pillow was placed over my face during the night, I held my breath for the longest time and kept very still, as I had trained myself to do in early infant school.  As I had been instructed to do.

While other children were playing, I was obediently holding my breath for as long as I could, all day, every day, stretching out how long I could last.  I could not see behind closed doors – I only saw them – but my mystery invisible guidance obviously could.

I  ‘gave myself to god –  if there was one’  with all the soul and intent of a desperate toddler.  Meditation or the light I found behind my eyes was my safest place to be.  Time spent behind my eyes, and in  nature, was my greatest source of safety, comfort and strength.

In adulthood,  a terrible head-on collision road accident, killed the driver, and left me unconscious and in critical condition.  It required many hours just to cut me from the crushed vehicle, before flying me to an intensive care unit.  Many simply ‘wrote me off’ from any future life.

Again, I relied on my default way of being, consulting my inner help, and I was guided step by step, through a long and complicated process of recovery.

The Universe had me come across a dog I found impossible to resist from my wheelchair.  A dog I had seen in my dreams as a child.  My spirit was already running with her.   Physically it took me longer, but how we sprinted together!  These days I enjoy circus trapeze workshops and dance.

Another near death experience, as refining of priorities as they are;) required me to change myself so that I did not attract any more of them.  My familiarity to that point was to suffer and I was just attracting it.  Law suits for personal damages were also not my career choice!

What I have learned from my life has been invaluable and I would not want to change the access to knowledge it has given me for anything in the world.  For me, that would be like turning off the light and returning to darkness.

To be Human is to Create, and ultimately, we become the person we choose to be, and who we work towards creating.

It is when our thoughts, words, actions, and behaviour are all aligned, that life is actually way easier.  Way easier!

We in Human form are the master/mistress, manager and caretaker ofall our cells, our thoughts and our feelings.  Here is where we do the best job at being the best us, with all the knowledge that we have, and within the parameters of 21st century planet earth, while creating the future.


No one can visit you if you do not offer them a chair, or a place to park their car, well the same for allowing you, your full spiritual presence.  Spirit world is thought world, and it only needs a space to be heard.

Notice all that you can do without using the mind; looking, listening, tasting, smelling etc.  Notice that you actually turn the mind ON, the moment you attempt to access information.

The mind is the ‘foyer’ equivalent to our memory files and elsewhere.  To use or not to use, like a hand or a foot.    Feel confident to pick and choose the thoughts that best suit your life construct at the time.

No time spent finding a space between thoughts is wasted, but makes all thinking easier and more succinct.  Rewards are experienced before you are able to hold that space for any time.

The space we create becomes our lifeline to ethereal dimensions and our easy access route to our spirit guidance.

We can then trust that we will know what we need to know, when we need to know it.


When we give sound to a thought, we activate it’s creative potential, bringing it into reality.  Having a thought is one thing, putting your sound to it magnifies it exponentially and brings it out ‘virally’.

Feel confident to choose your words carefully against the tide of people chatting and verbalizing every thought.

Your “I am” statements are your most creative building blocks.  Avoid staying in the common habit of question & answer, as we do not create when we direct another’s consciousness around.

Aim instead on the habit of restful sharing of what ‘comes to mind’, from another’s sharing.

An affirmation is a carefully chosen set of words, spoken with intent:

Today I am the strongest creator of success, health and happiness for my Self that I have ever been.

The ‘Universal Absolutes’ requirements for Success.

1.  Truth

Live in a state of Truth, “adherence to what is”.  Also called Integrity.  How can those in other dimensions assist you, if they cannot rely on your reliability, and your follow through?

2. Good Intent

Hold a good intent for all.  A love for Self and others that is uncompromising.

3. Gratitude

A state of gratitude automatically fast tracks us to allow ease of access to higher dimensions, by raising our vibration.

Doing these 3 = ask, receive, with guarantee!!!

The effortlessness of achievements requires our intent and goals to keep going, as though there is limitless possiblity…  And there is.

Many years ago, I worked out that intent then becomes 30%, providing ourselves with opportunity also 30%, and then doing it, is actually only 40% of effort.  Maximum effort with minimal effort.

This way life just makes sense, synchronicites occur, and finding meaning in what happens around us , makes even more sense.

While there is much fascination for what comes before snd after life,here is the only place we run and jump and leap and taste and touch and feel!  Here is our playground, and as with any game there are rules.

See you at the finish line!

About ameliapinter

Lover of life, love, joy and music and all that brings clarity to a planet in need. I was born into a living hell, where I was not allowed to speak -even to learn how- and I needed to employ military survival tactics as a toddler just to get around the house unharmed.;) I was forced to figure out life, or I was not going to survive, and I did so with completely unbiased eyes, as I could trust nothing that I was told by family who intended me harm. Figuring out what had caused my mother to not possess any natural maternal instinct, enabled me much insight. I wanted to be the best Human Being I could Be, and I wanted to know how. I ran away at 5 years old, but had no where to go, so I returned in secret, and stuck it out. I lived within her ignorant ways, while secretly studying what life was really all about...I saw my life was only a microcosm of what was happening large scale across the globe, inspiring me to share what I know. : ) Author, Philosopher, Transformative educator, Self Mastery educator, Empath, Healer, Singer & Musician. I am particularly interested in all languages, history, bringing an understanding t,o and mastery of, our feelings and thoughts; helping people attain inner peace to maximize their life experience; healthy sexual expression, development of consciousness, and in so doing, bringing a balance of our true selves operating in harmony on earth. I can provide the answers, my life has given me this. Many Blessings : )
