Holding Inanna’s hand – embracing menopause

Posted by on Jul 19, 2016 in Healing, Spiritual living | Comments Off on Holding Inanna’s hand – embracing menopause

I’ve been consistent in writing articles for my blog and recording videos for a few years now, but just recently you may have noticed that I haven’t been so active recently (or maybe that’s just my social media ego hoping)! After a couple of false starts where the words simply weren’t flowing, or I felt I really didn’t have anything worthwhile to share, I decided to leave it for a while. At first I attributed this disturbance in my usual creative routine to being thrown by the sudden cancellation of our house...

Timing and intention

Posted by on Jun 9, 2016 in Spiritual living | Comments Off on Timing and intention

Uranus has been sitting in the sign of Aries for a few years now, and I’m an Aries – just in case you were wondering at the level of change that seems (paradoxically) to be the only long term certainty in my life! Welcome to my world; which is enormous fun and tremendously exciting, even with the scariness that only occasionally nibbles lightly at my adventurous spirit. The latest big shift is that after almost a year on the market, we’ve sold our house. The lovely, homely cottage that has seen me launch my business, meet my...

Eternal flame

Posted by on Apr 21, 2016 in Poetry | Comments Off on Eternal flame

Someone has smoored the fire, apart from my tending. A pale and creeping chill has shawled my shoulders, Infringing my dulled heart and labouring belly. I yearn for the leaping flame, the heat-blushed cheek, And the charged crackle of life-affirming burn. I want anything, nothing, anything but to cradle this cold. My instinct to distraction. But I breathe, the ice-sharp blast like a bellows Reglows the unseen spark. In and out, in and out, I air the song of Being With my compassionate attention. Kindness is kindling. The uninvited are welcome...

Aging gracefully; you’re as old as you feel

Posted by on Apr 15, 2016 in Healing, Spiritual living | Comments Off on Aging gracefully; you’re as old as you feel

I’ve never really been bothered or felt limited by age. Perhaps it’s because I grappled with lack of self-confidence and shyness as a child and teenager, whereas the older I got the more confident, comfortable and relaxed I became. Consequently, I fulfilled a lifelong ambition of learning to ride a horse in my early thirties, experienced paragliding for the first time in my late thirties, decided to live as a nomad in a camper van for a year in my mid forties, and have consistently danced and exercised my way through life. So far,...

What if your path is to stray from it?

Posted by on Feb 24, 2016 in Spiritual living | Comments Off on What if your path is to stray from it?

While reading a book recently about living as the embodiment of your soul purpose, the author referred to the work of Carl Jung, and that he would say the ways we stray from the path ARE the path. This caught my attention and true to my searcher form I immediately called up Google to find the original. Instead, this direct quote from the great man popped up: “If the path before you is clear, you’re probably on someone else’s.” Well I howled with laughter. If you read my blog regularly or know my work, you’ll be aware that I have a...

The alchemy of boundaries and thresholds

Posted by on Feb 9, 2016 in Spiritual living | Comments Off on The alchemy of boundaries and thresholds

There’s something very magical about crossing any boundary, and we do it every day in multiple ways without ever noticing. Every time you enter a building, drive out of county or state, visit a park, watch a movie, open a book, change task, or click on a website, you’re crossing a boundary and entering different territory. These frequent thresholds offer the best possible opportunity to explore energy, and to notice the slightest of shifts in frequency and vibration. As children we have an innocent inner sense about thresholds. I...

If not you

Posted by on Jan 14, 2016 in Poetry | Comments Off on If not you

Not me, I say. He is far more intelligent, so much stronger, More confident, outspoken, just so much Well, more. And things stay the same. It should be her, I say. She finds it all so easy and effortless, She looks the part, persuasive and convincing With her poise and style. She is just so Well, perfect. And nothing changes. They can do it, I say. They have money and numbers behind them, So organised and structured, able To mobilise powerful force. They are just so Well, dynamic.” And still no shift. Finally, my heart cracks open and...

Loving the dynamic dreamer – reading for 2016

Posted by on Jan 5, 2016 in Spiritual living, Tarot | Comments Off on Loving the dynamic dreamer – reading for 2016

More and more I’m conscious of intention with everything I think, say and do. So as I shuffled the cards for my customary one card reading at the beginning of a new year I said to myself, “I ask that I bring through only information from the highest and purest source of light and love, and information that will facilitate the most powerful positive shift for everyone who reads it, and the planet as a whole.” So if after that advance warning you’re still happy to read on, then here we go! My heart warmed as I turned...

Come to be

Posted by on Nov 30, 2015 in Poetry | Comments Off on Come to be

I did not come to enslave myself to fear, Money, work, power, bricks and mortar, some Grand plan of achievement and purpose That is always just out of reach or Beyond knowing. I came to free myself to be myself. To partner myself in the dance of endless Joy and self-expression so contagious, So outrageously de-light-full That humanity cannot help but tap Its own feet in remembered rhythm And belly laugh out loud in Sacred affinity. I did not come to deny the darkness But to abseil into the abyss of despair, Sing to me all the ugly hurt and...

Being in hold

Posted by on Nov 12, 2015 in Healing, Spiritual living | Comments Off on Being in hold

I was reminded this week how important it is on our development and healing path to set regular time aside from all the “work” this involves, and just allow ourselves to be held by Source. As well as the benefits of slowing down our busy minds and active bodies, something very powerful happens when we feel and know ourselves to be properly held. We are able to let go, because even for a few moments we know absolutely that we don’t need to support ourselves. Think back to your own childhood or your children, and how a firm...
