Dream work; a poem

Posted by on Aug 5, 2023 in Poetry, Uncategorized | Comments Off on Dream work; a poem

This poem plays on the idea of dream work as a vocational profession, and the fact that as souls unlimited by time and space we also carry out real and valuable work in dreamtime – literal dream work. For me, both dreams turned out also to be prophetic. The first told me about my calling to spirit release and the second to being a way-shower, empowering others in navigating challenges and creating a more beautiful life and world for themselves and others. Dream Work The struggling line of spirits stretches out as farAs I can see from my...

Ariadne’s thread: Negotiating life’s labyrinth

Posted by on Jul 6, 2023 in Spiritual living, Uncategorized | Comments Off on Ariadne’s thread: Negotiating life’s labyrinth

Ariadne by Edward Burne-Jones I’ve loved Greek myth from childhood, but as I’ve embedded myself more in the landscape of my chosen homeland Wales, Celtic myth has taken first place in my heart. Recently, however, the story of Ariadne’s thread began clamouring for my attention. I’d been drawn to the novel about her by Jennifer Saint when it was first published, and just didn’t get round to it. So when I spotted it in my local phone box library I picked it up eagerly, aware that it had found me at the perfect time....

The call of Ceridwen; a poem

Posted by on Jun 7, 2023 in Poetry, Spiritual living, Uncategorized | Comments Off on The call of Ceridwen; a poem

Recently I spent a wonderful weekend with a group of women storytellers in West Wales, following the call of Ceridwen and her story embedded in the landscape. She’s linked with other areas of Wales too. This poem began to form after an experience at Pentre y Fan (known by some as Ceridwen’s womb tomb) that weekend. I scribbled the bare bones of it in my notebook while sitting on the rocks in Ceibwr Bay, having just returned from The Witch’s Cauldron on the nearby coast. The divine feminine is frequently closely linked with...

As we’re in such unsettled and changing times, I thought I’d share my top tips for coping with uncertainty using spiritual and healing practices. These are very general and will be of benefit to everyone. However, they don’t address specific issues such as acute anxiety or depression, so you might want to seek additional advice from experts in these areas if necessary. Practices for coping with uncertainty Nurture gratitude: Gratitude has one of the highest emotional vibrations, and in my experience it often opens you up and...

Who you are; a poem

Posted by on Apr 6, 2023 in Healing, Poetry, Spiritual living, Uncategorized | Comments Off on Who you are; a poem

Awakening by Marco Braun I wrote Who you are on April 5th 2023 – the eve of the full moon in Libra. I wasn’t conscious while writing of how appropriate it was for that particular moon and the astrology surrounding it, but I’m never surprised by where my inner knowing takes me. The Sun conjunct Chiron opposite that moon offered potent healing energy for the kind of wounding described here, common to many. The experience itself happened many years ago, but its vivid memory sustains me still. It’s a poem for any time, and...
