Remembering dance moves and dancing to release memory

Posted by on Mar 8, 2012 in Healing, Spiritual living | Comments Off on Remembering dance moves and dancing to release memory

I have recently returned from a festival called Majma – a weekend fest of every type of belly dancing (and a bit more besides) in the vibrant energy of Glastonbury. It’s a great way to introduce yourself to many different styles of traditional dance, and you’ll get to see the best teachers in the world show you how it’s done! If you want to see some photos of the event you can take a peek here: I learned a lot from each of my workshop sessions, not least that I should practice more, but the constant...

Connecting to the higher self – reading for 2012

Posted by on Jan 2, 2012 in Spiritual living, Tarot | Comments Off on Connecting to the higher self – reading for 2012

I can’t believe we have finally reached the long-awaited 2012, and I look forward to the new order and hope that this year promises, where the spiritual values of love, compassion and unity are at the heart of all life on this planet. The card drawn from my Thoth deck to guide us in 2012 is The Hanged Man. Suitably we have a major arcana card for this great year, which means that there are important spiritual lessons to be learned and applied by all of us – this will be a year of spiritual evolution. It also means that there are...

Give and receive – a natural cycle

Posted by on Dec 6, 2011 in Spiritual living | Comments Off on Give and receive – a natural cycle

I’d already had the idea of writing about giving as it seems very appropriate for the time of year and then to confirm this was right, as often happens with me, I was told of an interesting comment someone had made: “I’m not giving any money away for nothing as it only leads to resentment.” What makes someone feel this way? It’s an interesting viewpoint and it’s obviously the result of real life experiences. But it made me wonder how this same person would respond to a gift of money, because it’s true...

Overcoming fear and finding your strength

Posted by on Nov 3, 2011 in Healing, Spiritual living | Comments Off on Overcoming fear and finding your strength

I love that poem by Marianne Williamson that begins “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.” But what does that mean? How can we be afraid of our own strength and why would we avoid it? Our strengths can often be hidden in our weaknesses, covered over and cleverly disguised by past hurts and fears of being hurt again in the future. So we limit ourselves because of deep-rooted fears but the thing is most of us...

Cord cutting visualisation

Posted by on Sep 1, 2011 in Healing | Comments Off on Cord cutting visualisation

This cord cutting visualisation is brilliant for helping with all sorts of relationship difficulties and helps you to maintain your own energy. When we are having problems with other people, we often feel exhausted as our energy is being directed to these others through the energetic cords that connect us. This exercise restores your individuality and energy integrity, helping you to move on freely from relationships that have run their course, while removing blockages and unhealthy attachments from within ongoing relationships (don’t worry,...

Balancing act – creating as giving

Posted by on Aug 3, 2011 in Spiritual living | Comments Off on Balancing act – creating as giving

I am so lucky to live here in the heart of Wales and to be surrounded by natural beauty at all times. But over the last couple of years I, along with all the inhabitants of this small market town, have been treated to a more surprising symmetry. On my daily walk with my dog Jester along the banks of the river Wye, I suddenly began to notice the occasional appearance of fantastic sculptures. They were of natural stones, balanced on top of each other in seemingly impossible ways that defied gravity. They were so expertly positioned, sometimes...

Communicating with your inner child

Posted by on Jul 4, 2011 in Healing, Spiritual living | Comments Off on Communicating with your inner child

Rehearsing and performing Romeo and Juliet with the Willow Globe Company has, as ever, brought important life issues to my attention. I am playing Lady Capulet and I admit it was a bit of a challenge to “find” her in rehearsals. Our directors Phil and Sue are fantastic and always say we don’t have to worry about that but let the words speak for themselves – and they really do. Shakespeare is amazing at packing acres of character and information into a couple of lines. But still, there were many scenes in which I was on...

Falling – gravity as a spiritual lesson

Posted by on Apr 4, 2011 in Spiritual living | Comments Off on Falling – gravity as a spiritual lesson

I’m in danger of sounding like I do nothing but watch TV, but I won’t apologise for watching another excellent TV programme – The Wonders of the Universe. The subject was gravity, and Dr Brian Cox completely blew me away with this simple explanation of a complex force. Gravity means that absolutely everything is falling into everything else, irresistibly and continually following the curves of space time created by the pulls from all the stars, planets and galaxies in the universe. Gravity is by its very nature both creative...

The Human (or should that be Nature) Planet

Posted by on Feb 25, 2011 in Spiritual living | Comments Off on The Human (or should that be Nature) Planet

I watched Human Planet last night – a fantastic BBC TV programme if you get the chance to see it. The series looks at extreme environments on the planet and how humans in those places have adapted incredible and resourceful techniques for survivng within them. Two of the stories really spoke to me personally in this particular programme which focused on rivers. In the first one, we saw Hali who lives in Cherrapunji, India where they have the highest rainfall in the world, leading to problems with heavily swollen rivers that still needed...

Letting go to flow

Posted by on Feb 2, 2011 in Spiritual living, Tarot | 0 comments

I know that it’s time for change and I welcome it openly, but I’m realising how difficult it can be to allow that change to happen (even when you want it) for all sorts of reasons; fear of the unknown, material and personal insecurity, lack of self-confidence, distrust. I wouldn’t say I’m a control freak – a quick check with the boyfriend confirms I’m not, thank you George – but I know I can still benefit from loosening my hold on how I want things to become, and strengthening my ability to just allow...
