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...

Samhain

Posted by on Oct 30, 2015 in Poetry | Comments Off on Samhain

The moon and the pumpkin are aglow, Faces of enigmatic mystery Suffusing shadows with luminous smiles As a lure to the liminal. Draw near to the far They urge, Draw near to the far. And I do, With respect, and awe, and wonder, And the sweet offering of Self. My quieting mind, my questing heart Part the veil easily. Time and space cease to be As I merge and expand Mingle and open Rapt in silken swathes of fae, Elemental, ancestral, dimensional One-ness and all-ness. Breathing through boundaries, Perceiving past reason, The Samhain spark flares...

Heal yourself, heal the world

Posted by on Oct 12, 2015 in Healing | Comments Off on Heal yourself, heal the world

I often say that the best contribution you can make to the health and wellbeing of the planet and of humanity is to heal yourself, to do the inner work on yourself. If you accept that we are all connected and are all one, which I do, then obviously the more light and love you’re able to hold in a clear, healthy system, the more light and love is available to the rest of the whole of which you’re a part. There is another aspect to this journey, though, that can catch you out and even make you wonder whether it’s worth...

The gifts of the Tarot

Posted by on Sep 15, 2015 in Spiritual living, Tarot | Comments Off on The gifts of the Tarot

As I’ve just booked the dates for my next Tarot weekend workshop, it got me thinking about why I love it  so much as a powerful tool for spiritual growth. Although its origins are a bit of a mystery and there are many theories, my personal understanding is this. Ancient knowledge about the true nature of our spirit and human experience has been passed down through the ages from Lemuria through to Egypt, from the Druids to the Essenes and beyond – orally at first and then in written form. When it became dangerous to be caught...

Don’t hold back the river

Posted by on Sep 6, 2015 in Poetry | Comments Off on Don’t hold back the river

Don’t hold back the river. Tug me into the current, Tow me into the flow, Show me the float and drift. Don’t hold back the Tempt and tangle of riverbed tendrils, Sirensong whispers. The fret to fight free. Don’t hold back. Tumble and pummel me rapidly, Roll and bowl me in dizzy Disorientation. Don’t hold, But smash against the rocks. Attune me to attrition, Erode every edge. Fire me over the falls, Drop me down heart- Stopping, breath-taking plunges Way over my head, Out of my depth, Land-lost and river-wracked. And...

You know best

Posted by on Aug 26, 2015 in Spiritual living | Comments Off on You know best

In a blog post last month I talked about not ever allowing ourselves to grow past the labels we can stick on ourselves at an early age. The other aspect of this personal boxing in is the fatal mistake of comparing yourself to others, and this was really brought home to me at the weekend. I volunteered to take part in a joint venture between two theatre companies: one the Willow Globe community company to which I belong and the other The Wet Mariners, all remarkable professionals trained at the London Academy of Dramatic Art. The idea was to...
