Who or what are you holding yourself together for?

Who are you at your very core, are you well acquainted and comfortable together, does that part get heard and allowed regular expression and how often do you operate from that aspect of self, as priority…foundational to all else, as the source of your true identity and resilience? A post written for Living Whole which feels like it has so much relevance here that I am reposting. Continue reading

Choosing where to dwell

We have so many more choices than we tend to think; almost as though we like to consider ourselves stuck, tied up in rigid bands of constriction, “just like everyone else”, but simply allowing ourselves to realise we have many more…perhaps tiny-seeming…options available to us can be the start of manifesting something much bigger. Because those first baby steps of enthusiasm or belief in our ability to change something about our situation can be the first niche of light coming into the dark cave of circumstance and they resculpt our highly neuroplastic minds, which then start to go off on a light-seeking mission, gathering more daylight from anywhere they can find a little bit of give in life’s seeming rigidity or a higher frequency of possibility than the one you have probably been putting up with for some time. A bit like giving a sniffer dog its new instructions by holding out a miniscule sample of whatever we are looking for, it is enough to set the process in motion, as in, if we reprogram our minds to know shift is possible, it will bring more and more of the same potential back to us, over and over until we are experiencing something quite new.

Cultivating joie de vivre

Joy of life is about the most valuable commodity we have so we need to take charge of our own joy quota and do whatever we can to embody it, not to idealise it as a state beyond all care, outside of physicality as though joy is what we refer to as heaven, but in a physical sense hung around with all our most human traits. Thus the phrase joie de vive has it covered for me, as in, referring specifically to “the joy of life”; a kind of joy that is because of life, not separate from it. People say how can I have this when “things” are so dire and I would say go after it, make it happen, yes from your soul, but then once you have found ways to bring it into your body, those outside circumstances will start to change!

My word of the year is regeneration

The practice of choosing a word of the year has power because you spotlight and commit to it. When you veer off its path, you ask yourself why and you pull yourself back towards its steadying influence. You stay more aware of daily variances in belief system and come to recognise what is old patterning dragging you backwards, compared to what is new, opening doors of perception. More and more, you crave the latter and dismiss the former, under the auspices of this one guiding word. Continue reading

Dream therapist

Don’t ever underestimate the power of sleep to heal, answer big questions or serve as the therapist you could never quite manage to hook up with…as we tend to innately realise as children and as I’ve been newly reminded lately. Continue reading

The difference between 3D and 5D experience…and why we should all be interested

So what is this five dimensional experience people in spiritual communities talk about, how do we get to it and experience it as our new-normal and has it not always been there? Above all, why is it just so relevant and important right now? Continue reading

All or nothing

People say they want more freedom, more flow, more organic healing, more natural rhythms and to live lives trusting in Nature again and yet they litter this wishful landscape with “excepts…” and “yeah buts” and other such safeguarding conditions. They want it just a little bit but not all of the time and, as soon as thy don’t feel safe, as soon as they have to give up part of themselves to the daylight, they recoil back into all the same old fear mechanisms and structures of separation… Continue reading

Cycles of the sun

Did you know we are in the all-important phase between two solar cycles, where those cycles, as it were, overlap over the phase known as solar minimum, during which the new cycle is already starting to assert itself? These remind … Continue reading

Mrs White in the study with the candlestick

When things happen that we don’t like, it’s so easy to accuse this and that, until it becomes like a proverbial game of “Cluedo” (“Clue” in N America)…calling out a person in a situation with a particular “weapon”…except nobody ever wins in real life. So what could be a fresh way forwards? Looking at triggers, separation mentality and a way out of this toxic pain. Continue reading
