Being in hold

Posted on Nov 12, 2015 in Healing, Spiritual living

Goddess and chaliceI 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.

Do you need repotting?

Posted on Jul 16, 2015 in Spiritual living

Butterfly plantIf you’ve been following my Facebook page you’ll know that recently my life has been dominated by something rather different from my usual activity – painting and decorating (and even assembling furniture). All my life I have thought of myself as not capable in that way, and so have avoided doing it where possible.

Faced with a deadline and the excellent motivation of wanting to sell our house, I threw myself into the manual work with total abandon and dedication. And what do you know? I found that not only was I rather good at it (my “cutting in” where two colours met and my edges received praise from a professional no less!) but I also really enjoyed it.
