Retreat and (meno)pause

Posted by on Apr 5, 2017 in Spiritual living | Comments Off on Retreat and (meno)pause

When I first decided to book myself a week of solo retreat, I had some interesting responses. Everything from “won’t you be afraid on your own?” (umm….no), and “won’t you feel lonely?” (are you serious? And I’m taking my dog with me!) through to “why would you want to do that?” Well as you know I’m progressing towards the Mystic phase of my life, becoming “she who holds her wise blood inside”*. At this point in the process, when my moon cycles began to appear less...

Healing occurs in layers, and there’s always more to do. Even if you intend that you go straight to the root cause to clear something, which I always do these days, it may still take a while to filter that healing completely through all your bodies – physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. As your consciousness expands and your self-awareness deepens, so you’re more able to access facets of an issue that have been buried and cleverly cloaked within you for a long time or even invoked by more recent knowledge and...

Crafting ripples on the water

Posted by on Feb 9, 2017 in Healing, Spiritual living | Comments Off on Crafting ripples on the water

I read a wonderful article recently about the different ways we can respond to the need for change we see around us in the world, and how each approach is just as valuable and indeed essential (you can read Sharon Blackie’s article here: Resistance: the Mythos and the Logos). As energy and lightworkers, which is what we are as soon as we are conscious of our spiritual self, we can do so much as individuals at a time when it’s all too easy to feel powerless. As well as any other action we may choose to take, we can simply live and...

Freedom from the flames

Posted by on Jan 24, 2017 in Spiritual living | Comments Off on Freedom from the flames

My spiritual path in recent years has been a solitary one, apart from one or two workshops and lots of selective reading. I love to read as it allows me to receive and digest information in my own time, assessing whether it resonates strongly enough to enhance my own practice and understanding. I confess, at heart I am a bit of a lone wolf. However, last year I made a momentous decision to join a nine month online women’s journey, where we would be sharing in great depth and vulnerability. I was drawn to the authenticity, integrity and...

You’re the answer – reading for 2017

Posted by on Jan 3, 2017 in Spiritual living, Tarot | Comments Off on You’re the answer – reading for 2017

For most of us 2016 was a challenging year of incredible highs and the deepest of lows. The intensity of the energetic shifts has been tough on our physical bodies as they have struggled to integrate the frequencies that our spirits have welcomed so warmly and easily. My sense was that for the last 12 months we’d been journeying through a transforming but sometimes searing fire and that the new year would offer some respite from this, so I was delighted to turn over the card for 2017. The card I drew is the Nine of Cups, which in my...

To be or not to be

Posted by on Oct 31, 2016 in Poetry | Comments Off on To be or not to be

In trying so hard not to be That which I wish to avoid, All I have known and felt as Hurtful Painful Isolating Challenging Unloving Unpopular I can deflect. I can forget to be I can neglect to be All that I am. Was this Hamlet’s perplexity? Do I live a life of not being, Rather than of being? That IS a question. For one is spent on denial, Repression and suppression, Perpetual fight or flight. It is a reactive No, A living death. The other roots in acceptance, Open-ness and feeling, Continual ebb and flow. It is a passionate Yes To life...

Divine dedication

Posted by on Oct 20, 2016 in Spiritual living | Comments Off on Divine dedication

Not just in the spiritual world, but generally, I’ve found myself talking about and mourning the loss of the idea of apprenticeship, of committing to spending a significant amount of time, energy and focus to learning and honing a skill or to following a calling. This can either involve being in service to a particular person who has already walked the chosen path for many years and so has extensive wisdom to pass on, or it can simply be a commitment to a way of life or a code of practice within a sphere of activity. For either,...

Light show

Posted by on Aug 26, 2016 in Poetry, Uncategorized | Comments Off on Light show

The interval is over. Time is called. Now! How long have I hoped to hear those words? Aeons, and lifetimes, and incarnations, and contracts All building so beautifully, so purposefully up to This moment, Instantly. Every tiny adjustment signalling a momentous Move that could not be known or understood Before No matter how wise or enlightened, Nor the reach of my impassioned impatience. Auditions, rehearsals, read-throughs which Once fuelled frustration Yet resolved into the perfect pattern, The magical mandala that spirals me Here. Centre...

The voice of the heart

Posted by on Aug 10, 2016 in Healing | Comments Off on The voice of the heart

Do you like the sound of your own voice? So many of my clients tell me that they hate the way they sound when they speak, and some can’t even bear to listen to themselves at all. Add to that the fact that for a majority of women the throat chakra is often the one most in need of healing and it’s easy to glimpse the untapped potential in the voice. In creative myths and legends around the world, it is often a sound that summons every thing into the state of being, a sound which is understood at the symbolic level to be the voice of...

Call of Sophia

Posted by on Jul 28, 2016 in Poetry | Comments Off on Call of Sophia

I hear it often before I feel it – a low unrelenting hum That arrests and strains me towards it, yearning to catch The rhythm and pulse in my heart and womb. My breath becomes the refrain of Her call. And that is that. There is no thing to be thought or said or done Until I am abandoned to Her presents and That hum has come to thrum through Each particle, photon and space within me. “Aaaaaaaaaaah,” She sighs as She senses Me soften, Yielding and unravelling into consecrated one-ness, “There I am.” Image by...
