Did the Prince of Wales Marry the Quaker Hannah Lightfoot?

Had I stumbled upon a rare, limited edition of a small rare volume published in Tasmania. 50 years ago’

With historical secrets.

I was living in a caravan in the Aussie bush.


I’m an ex-advertising copywriter.

I can use words to tell a story.

I researched the book and wrote 236 pages for 10 years.

It’s a blockbuster.

Well, the Writer’s Digest said so.

“It’s got everything it needs to be a blockbuster,” they said.

History, romance, the paranormal: the story of a narrator finding his way in the world.”

It’s an adventure across 5 countries.

Including Australia where, my research shows, unknown and hidden Royal children were sent in the First Fleets to the new colony with a cargo of female convicts.

Who would know?

They were hidden from sight.

Until now.

Read this history-making Mind/Body/Spirit paranormal true story.

Not dry history.

It’s a “fun and entertaining” read (said another review).

It’s a page-turner.

Love and peace.

The Old Caravan In The Bush.

That was my home for 5 years.

The blue tarp was to stop the roof from leaking.

A metaphor for my life.

Like a reset.

The old caravan was like a womb and the Wombat Forest was the rest of the world.

What if I could start again.

The typical Mid-Life Crisis.

Is this the chance we all have to reset, to start again?

In the midst of what we already have?

We’ve tested the waters of our chosen career.

Maybe we’ve proved we can do it.

Or not.

Our soul is crying out to be heard.

What are we here for?

What is our true destiny?

Do you have a destiny wanting to speak?

Your caravan in the bush?

I had no choice.

My one-man freelance business went bankrupt.

I lost everything.

I had no choice but to start again.

I had to let go.

There’s a wisdom saying, Buddhist I think . . .

What you let go of, which is truly yours, shall be returned to you tenfold.

It was true for me.

I had to let go.

The Universe is there to support you.

It did me.

May the Force be with you.

I had untold adventures.

Other countries to visit.

Books to write.

Of my stories.

They’re all here.

Your destiny awaits.

Your story.

Waiting to be told.

You’ll need to have it first.

Starting from where you are,

Start and everything else will follow.

It’s my secret.

Love and peace.

What Happened in the Caravan?

The caravan was my home for five years.

Lots happened.

I became one of the spa resort community of Hepburn Springs.

A new me emerged.

Maybe that was the real me.

I think so.

I shook off the advertising world I’d left behind in a hurry.

I’d just been declared bankrupt.

It’s all there in my book.

I opened myself up to new people.

To interesting new people.

New experiences.

Maybe it’s what we should all do at some time.

Is this called ‘mid life crisis’?

Wrote articles for the local paper.

Researched the story of the Swiss and Italian miners who came to Australia in the Gold Rush days of the 1850s.

Then I wrote the article.

It’s an amazing true unknown story.

They started a new Italy in the Australian bush.

My article was published in three parts.

Today it’s Chapter 8, ‘Italy in the Aussie Bush’, of my book ‘The Great Regency Cover-Uphere.

The owner of the General Store picked it up and started the ‘Swiss-Italian Festa’.

Here’s their interesting website.

There was more. that happened in the caravan over those spectacular five years of rebirth for me.

Maybe a real mind/body/spirit rebirth.

I share everything with you.

Love and peace.

Runaway Train.

My life has been like a runaway train.

After I went bankrupt.

I’ve written the book to tell you everything that happened.



A mystery.

And the paranormal that seemed to have my back as I ventured fourth..

Having lost everything.

Like I was being taken care of because what knew had to be told.

So here’s the thing.

I had uncovered an historical mystery.

A very true story where some lovely people were hurt.

Lovely people who were in the wrong place at the wrong time.

In Regency times.

The late 1700s in Georgian England.

The time when the King was going mad.

When those on or near the throne of England feared for their safety.

Even from losing their head.

This is the hidden story.

Because of what they knew and where they were sitting in or close to Royal circles.

There was strong anti-Catholic sentiment.

The Gordon riots.

Evidence of a secret marriage burned.

And more.

I know all this.

I’ve told it as I uncovered the hidden facts and the trail of where it might have been.

All of this as I struggled with bankruptcy and losing everything.

I encountered twists and turns in every moment.

And paranormal clues that followed my trip everywhere.

Across five countries.

Retracing their steps as I went.

Encountering romantic stopovers.

Meeting interesting people.

Having the adventure of my life.

May I share it with you.

At every stop I take you with me as the adventure unfolds.

I want it to be your adventure too.

Just read the reviews here.

Or buy the book here.

Enjoy the journey with me.

Love and peace,

Neil the Smith

Your Mind Knows Who You Are

Have you ever asked your mind who you are?

Do you ever ask it for advice?

A winner of a creative business award was asked what was her secret of success.

“I just trust my beeps,” she said.

Trust her beeps.

Why don’t you try trusting your beeps.

They’re the code to get you out of a rut..

The vibes.

The intuition.

Your mind is energy.

You can tap into that energy, the waves, the vibrations, that you are searching for outside yourself,

Your mind has your interests at heart.

Maybe your mind holds the clues to your Destiny.

Ask it who you are.

With thought.

Because your mind, your Destiny, knows who you were meant to be.

You chose it.

Love and peace.

Your Mind is Your Guardian Angel.

Listen to it.

Your mind knows all.

It’s that still small voice in your head.

Because your mind is the link between you and your soul.

Your mind is your soul guiding you.

Not your physical brain.

Your mind.

It can’t be measured, weighed, seen, evaluated or removed.

It’s what leaves us at the time our physical body gives up the ghost and ceases to be a living creature.

It’s our mind that our body “gives up”.

It’s the secret of eternal life.

Of reincarnation.

Of eternal youth.

So listen to your mind.

Follow its guidance.

It’s your guardian.

Don’t believe me?

Start listening and testing its advice and you’ll become hooked.

You don’t need to change anything or do anything or spend anything.

Just be still and listen.

Love and peace.

Align Yourself to Creation.

Live in harmony with Creation.

It’s the secret of Life.

Of survival.

Of long life.

Of natural health.

It’s the secret of you.

To align yourself with Creation.

And it costs nothing.

It’s the secret of living how you were meant to live.

With no big issues.

If you encounter any then you face and overcome them.

It’s the challenge of life.

The adventure.

And it’s why were here.

The meaning of Life.


Don’t refuse the adventure.

It’s the Go of the Game.

Start the game and start winning.

You can be the Hero of your own adventure.

Not famous.

Not an influencer.

Only you will know.

Only you can win the game.

But you’ve got to be in the game.

Align yourself with the game now.

Get started and start winning.

But you have to be in the game to win.

Your game is called the Game of Creation.

Start at Go now.

Think about what I’ve said.

Be in it.

Love and peace.

How the Paranormal Uncovered a Royal Cover-Up.

Everywhere I looked the evidence was not there.

Vital papers had been burned.

Identities were anonymous.

The truth had not been told.

As if they were nobody.

I knew they were Royalty.

Sure, that was 250 years ago.

In Regency times.

In England.

But, incredibly, involving the very early days of British settlement in New South Wales (Australia) and New Zealand).

Who would know?

Certainly not the official line.

Not recorded history.

But I had the paranormal clues.

And they gave me enough, like the smoke, that is evidence of there being a fire.

In the end, after considerable research, I found enough smoke to show there must have been a fire.

The Prince of Wales had his position – and his head – on the line,

All good reason for the cover-up.

I understand.

Now, 25 years later, someone wants the truth to out.

Which is where my story becomes truly paranormal.

I can’t claim proof.

That’s been cleverly destroyed.

I can claim evidence like the smoke that gives away a fire.

Read my 236 page book and judge for yourself.

You’ll enjoy the fun and entertaining read.

You’ll ponder the spiritual wisdom as the Truth comes out.

In this sense, it’s a mind/body/spirit story (as well as an historical exposure).

With some romance along the way.

Reader’s Digest said, “You have discerned an amazing story.”

“It’s got everything it needs to be a blockbuster,” they said.

A Royal cover-up which, as you will see, all started with a ghost.

A ghost who appears at Chapter 3 – The Ghost of Granny Fitz’.

Buy the book ‘The Great Royal Cover-Up’ here and enjoy the great read.

Love and peace.

What Can We Do, You & Me, About the World?

What can one person do, alone, to change the world?

Even just a little bit.

I hear people saying just this.

What can we do?

What can I do?

I’m just one person.

I’m nobody.

What can I do?

Well, I’ve thought that too.

Until I wrote this small book

. It’s about what I can do.

Which is nothing.

Nothing compared to people who are famous, are influencers, are in a position to make a difference.

But then, I’ve written a book.

It’s all I can do.

But here’s the thing.

I know what we can do, as individuals, as ordinary people, without a voice.

Except our own.

So I want to invite you to read the book.

I have found the way that ordinary, everyday people like you and me can do something.

You can without making a fuss.






Without going anywhere.

Just where you are.

Here’s the link to my book ‘Romancing Your Life. Changing The World’.

Doesn’t cost much.

Won’t bore you.

Easy to read.

Get it and together we can change the world.

Let’s give it a shot.

It may be now or never.

Love and peace.

How to Make Good Stuff Happen.

Think about it

That’s the eternal secret of making stuff happen.

It’s the eternal secret of health.


That’s it.

What you think is what you get.

Thoughts in, reality out.

Your thoughts create your reality.

It’s the hidden secret of the word ‘abracadabra’.

The magic wand of life.

I’ve written a small but powerful book ‘Romancing Your Life. Changing The World.’

About how your thoughts are creating your reality.

And more.

Look for the secret message at the front that’s the abracadabra moment for everything.

Every day, every minute, we’re being hit with thoughts that are not real.

But that’s what is creating our reality.




People being unkind to people.

That’s what is creating your reality.

You can change that now.

Watch what you think.

Don’t watch the evening news.

Because it’s creating your reality.

What you think is what you get.

Think big but think nice.

You could change the world.

Love and peace.

It’s All About the Job, Not About You.

Or is the job about you and your health?

There’s a conflict here.

A dilemna.

How is it to be resolved.

Do you want a job that you love, your passion, or not.

The answer is, passion is your starting point.

Take your passion, make it happen.

They’re the words from the movie ‘Flashdance’.

It’s a secret to changing the world.




The world is an orchestra.

Each of us playing our part, like an instrument.

Our instrument is our passion.

What we love.

If you haven’t found your passion yet, then you need time to find it.

Not be pressured into taking a job you hate.

Like 85% of the rest of the world (according to a Gallop poll over 160 countries)*

No wonder the world’s orchestra is in disharmony.

From a soul perspective, there’s a part written for you.

One that will create harmony and health in your world as well as the whole world.

A score written just for you.

Go find it.

There’s a plan in place to deal with this.

It’s called the Universal Basic Income.

I’ve written about it in my new book.

We can do better.

That is, if we are to change the world.

To make this a better world.

To improve our lives.

Instead of making our lives unpleasant in our daily experience.

Love and peace.

Do You Hate Your Job?

Are you one of the 85% of people in the world who don’t like their job?

Is this mind-blowing figure such a surprise?

Because in a study by respected Gallop worldwide, most of us don’t care much for our jobs.

Is this why most of us don’t care much for our world today?


And what does anyone care.

More to the point, what are we going to do about it?

Fix the world or change the function of our jobs?

What about both.

Buy my new book ‘Romancing Your Life. Changing The World’.

If 85% of us hate our jobs then what hope has the world got to be loved by the world?

Not much.

What to do?

In an article titled ‘Why 85% of People Hate Their Jobs’ a worldwide Gallop Poll of 160 countries showed that 85% of people are unhappy in their jobs.

The author of this Gallop study, titled ‘The World’s Broken Workplace’, is Jim Clifton, Chairman and CEO of Gallop.

If you don’t like your job you are not alone.

So why do they persist in telling us that we all need one of these jobs that most of us don’t like.

Isn’t it creating a world of negative thought?

A world disinterested in what we do with our main purpose in life?

An attidude of regarding our workplace as a negative experience.

We can do better.

That is, if we are to change the world.

To make this a better world.

To improve our lives.

Instead of making our lives unpleasant in our daily experience.

Love and peace.

Are Our Kids Being Brainwashed?

Brainwashing techniques have been documented as far back as the Egyptian Book of the Dead and used by abusive spouses and parents, self-proclaimed psychics, cult leaders, secret societies, revolutionaries, and dictators to bring others under their thumbs and manipulate them seemingly willingly.” (wikihow)

I hear stories of teenagers being kicked out of home, sent to mental institutions and made homeless living on the streets.

And I have to wonder, is it because of their chosen behaviour which doesn’t meet the rules of the parents, or behaviour caused by brainwashing, that is, repeated abusive and negative expectations of parents or partners?

And why do I keep hearing, oh that’s teenagers for you, tut, tut?

Is so-called typical teenage behaviour largely the product of constant psychological verbal abuse?

So how much are drugs, depression and suicides caused by the same constant verbal abuse?

It’s a tragedy.

I’m appalled.

Wake up to the damage you’re doing to our kids.

This is not discipline, it’s mentally damaging and life changing.

Life destroying.

Unfairly judgemental.

These are young souls, maybe old souls, who are coming to terms with their own destiny, which lies before them.

Let them be free to explore their own destinies.

Not yours.

The world is changing fast.

They deserve to have a chance to face the new world in their own ways.

Instead of yours.

Please, let’s save our kids, our vulnerable teenagers, from long-term psychological damage.

We need to honour and respect these new souls.

Our children will inherit the Earth.

Love and peace.

Introducing the Abracadabra Moment.

You can do magic.

Just by using words.

Is this what the word ‘abracadabra’ really means.

That every day, in every moment, we’re doing our own magic with our words.


I believe it’s a hidden meaning of the famous words.

In any language.

Our words create thoughts.

Thoughts have power.

Just by speaking them.

I call it the ‘Abracadabra Moment’.

We do it all the time.

Usually without thinking we’re thinking it.

It’s the secret of abracadabra.

It’s the principle of the Law of Attraction.

Say the words we wish to attract often – and words we don’t even think to attract – and that’s what we attract.

To give you an example, in every moment of our waking lives the media is bombarding us with words.

It’s those words – and all the others – that create an ‘abracadabra moment’ every day of our waking lives.

But we don’t realise it.

Even our critical words directed at our kids are creating their reality.

Even though it’s not our intention.


Because those words all create reality.

Our own and that of our innocent kids.

Think about it.

Here are positive messages we can use to create wonderful ‘abracadabra moments’.

For ourselves and our kids.

Think about it.

Love and peace.

Was This The Ghost of The Prince’s Mistress? Or Wife?

There has been an unsolved mystery, and closely guarded secret, from the time of George the Fourth, Prince of Wales.

Was he married to this Roman Catholic widow?


And did they have children?


Heirs to the throne of England.

Would this have changed the course of history?

Two hundred years or so later there have been many attempts to answer those questions.

None very convincingly.

Have I uncovered a somewhat more convincing case.

Re-opened by a ghost.

A ghost whose story I stumbled upon while living, broke, in an old caravan parked by the roadside in a country town in the Australian bush.

Which led me on an amazing adventure across five countries seeking answers to the cover-up.

Here’s my true and shocking paranormal story.

Paranormal, yes.

About a ghost, yes.

Leading to genuine historical evidence to support the yes and yes case.

I’ve written the book called ‘The Great Regency Cover-Up’.

Order your copy now and see for yourself.

Love and peace.
