When paradigms rub shoulders

If you are a contrarian, a heretic, a mystic at heart (as those who help to shift paradigms are…) then walk that sometimes solitary path with a smile and stop worrying about acceptability. To quote Jacob Nordby:

“mystics rattle our reality tunnels. They walk a lonely path because most humans are invested in seeing through a fixed belief window. Mystics help us to understand that there is a whole lot more to the picture. Even though we might not understand their paradoxes and metaphors, something in us knows that we are thrilled to be connected to an intelligent system so imponderably massive that our minds cannot comprehend the wholeness of it for more than a split second at a time.” (Jacob Nordby — Blessed are the Weird).

If you have reached the point where you are able to hold that enormity for more than just a split second then, for goodness sake, don’t trade that in for acceptability or inclusion. Run with it, trusting others will follow. Continue reading

Crystalising

At the weekend, I had a fundamentally life-altering experience as I stood beside the iron-red waters of Glastonbury’s Chalice Well, in its serene garden-setting (which was just starting to bloom with spring blossom and other early flowers); trite though that sounds. … Continue reading

My journey with AuraTransformation

If you ever struggle to stay in your body, to remain grounded, or if (when you do) you feel so much that you are quickly depleted of energy or overwhelmed…and if you have come so far, done all the work, cleared so much, become so aware and yet your body and spirit seem to spar or pull apart in opposite directions, instead of staying contentedly together… this post might be for you… Continue reading

How we encourage empathy…and not just in women

In a world full of people that are, we are told, less empathic than ever, how do we encourage more empathy? Do women naturally have more empathy than men, as one study suggests, or do they develop this by reading more fiction, something which men are far less inclined to do? If so, how do we plug this gap in our boy’s emotional intelligence? An article (linked) that I read this week set me off on this line of thought and these are some additional thoughts I have to contribute… Continue reading

Speaking out for each other

Whatever “story” is making you heart weep right now, be it the ecosystem, treatment of animals or of people (there’s a lot to choose from…), I say to you, don’t run away from it but take steps to be active in it; taking POSITIVE action, which is being your light in an earthly sense and in ways that don’t deplete but invest you in your humanness. That’s what I am doing here, with this story to share…asking for your help. When we all work together, fuelled by the heart, extraordinary things can happen… Continue reading

Dissolving barbed wire

The festive underbelly

Part of me finds christmas quite abhorrent because meat gluttony peaks at this time of year and there’s really no escaping it. Everywhere I look –  in my newsfeed, in commercials and many of the websites I use to do … Continue reading
