Help is at hand – community consciousness

Posted by on Nov 18, 2013 in Spiritual living | Comments Off on Help is at hand – community consciousness

It’s almost two months now since we became motorhome nomads, and even I am surprised at how easily I’ve adjusted to this way of life. There isn’t one thing I’ve got fed up with (not even my partner George!) or one thing about house-based living I’ve pined for.Ā I have really seen in very practical terms that it’s your attitude that determines how you experience life. Probably because I’m seeing each moment as an adventure, I’m enjoying absolutely everything, even the difficulties and challenges....

The soul journey through the Thoth tarot cards: The Devil

Posted by on Oct 23, 2013 in Tarot | Comments Off on The soul journey through the Thoth tarot cards: The Devil

Continuing my journey through the spiritual development meaning of Tarot cards, specifically the major arcana of the Thoth deck, we reach number 15….. The Devil Tarot card I love this card. It leads perfectly on from the Art card which taught you about acceptance and reconciling opposites, because the Devil takes you further beyond accepted morals and social judgements to embrace all of life and who you are fully and passionately. Particularly, I feel, with reference to your body and sexuality. So often in the past spirituality has...

Moving on

Posted by on Oct 11, 2013 in Spiritual living | Comments Off on Moving on

You would think that making the decision to move out of your familiar house and go travelling in a motor home would be the difficult bit. After all, you’re taking a great leap of faith and letting go of all your security blankets (well, mine anyway). But in my case that was the easy part. It was the actual getting away that would prove challenging. Buying the motor home and renting out our house all went amazingly smoothly and swiftly, so much so that if there had been any doubts they would have been thoroughly soothed. What I...

The soul journey through the Thoth tarot cards: Art

Posted by on Sep 27, 2013 in Tarot | Comments Off on The soul journey through the Thoth tarot cards: Art

Continuing my journey through the spiritual development meaning of Tarot cards, specifically the major arcana of the Thoth deck, we reach number 14….. Art Tarot card The transformation that you have made room for in the Death card, is fully in progress as you reach Art. In this space, you’re ready to blend all opposites and polarities together in true one-ness, to create a new way of living and being which is harmonious and perfectly balanced. Now you learn that any contradiction or difference can be resolved, because in the...

The circle of life

Posted by on Sep 9, 2013 in Spiritual living | Comments Off on The circle of life

I know and always talk about the cyclical nature of life, illustrated so beautifully by my beloved moon, but I have never had it so practically presented as I did this weekend. When I was planning to move from Manchester to Wales nine years ago, my meditations and dreams danced with images of wolves and Archangel Michael. Now you all know how I love the Internet for research purposes, so I simply typed into Google “wolves and Archangel Michael” and the first listing that appeared was for a village called Bleddfa. This tiny...

The soul journey through the Thoth tarot cards: Death

Posted by on Aug 23, 2013 in Tarot | Comments Off on The soul journey through the Thoth tarot cards: Death

Continuing my journey through the spiritual development meaning of Tarot cards, specifically the major arcana of the Thoth deck, we reach number 13….. Death Tarot card When you have truly followed the lesson of The Hanged Man and given yourself over to allowing the Divine within you, Death comes quickly as a result. But this is not the death we all know and often fear, but rather a letting go of the old so that the new you can be born; it’s a transformation. Spiritually, this card indicates that you have moved further away from...

Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression

Posted by on Aug 14, 2013 in Book reviews, Healing | Comments Off on Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression

An increasing number of my clients are struggling with depression and anxiety, in addition to whatever issues they have brought to me for healing work. Only last night talking with friends we discovered we had all brushed up against depression to a greater or lesser degree. Recently then, I found myself searching the web for a course to equip me to help and understand these clients better. I looked at NLP, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and many more, but nothing felt quite right or appropriate to use within the context of my soul-centred...

The soul journey through the Thoth tarot cards: The Hanged Man

Posted by on Jul 19, 2013 in Tarot | Comments Off on The soul journey through the Thoth tarot cards: The Hanged Man

Continuing my journey through the spiritual development meaning of Tarot cards, specifically the major arcana of the Thoth deck, we reach number 12….. The Hanged Man Tarot card Giving yourself fully to life and each moment with the Lust card must also be balanced by knowing when to stop, to pause for a while as you give yourself up to Divine will for the next phase of your journey. You can tell when The Hanged Man is calling because you’ll feel stuck and unable to move further forward in your development. You’re aware that...

Spirituality in a small space

Posted by on Jul 12, 2013 in Spiritual living | Comments Off on Spirituality in a small space

Part of the reason for our motorhome adventure is to simplify our lives, and to explore new ways of living and being on this planet that reflect the values of love, harmony and compassion. So from the moment we planned our first trip (a deliberately safe one to a Malvern camping site as I was attending a course in the area), I wanted to adopt this attitude by trying to use only organic and eco-friendly products. When it comes to cleaning, I’ve found that one bottle of Ecover multisurface cleaner pretty much does everything I need it to...

A synchronicity (not coincidence) story

Posted by on Jun 20, 2013 in Spiritual living | Comments Off on A synchronicity (not coincidence) story

The first and somewhat essential step in our motorhoming adventure has been taken – we’ve bought a motorhome. He has duly been named Shadowfax (for those of you who are not fellow Lord of the Rings fanatics, that’s the name of the horse that carries the wizard Gandalf through much of the saga; a stallion said to be the fastest, most intelligent steed in middle earth). I’d like to share some synchronicities about how we got to this point, especially as I know this kind of thing happens in abundance when you’re in...
