Out of time

It made me smile when I read the Deva Premal post on Instagram that showed a photo of her and Miten and she commented “must have been a very long time ago, the days when we still wore watches” but … Continue reading

Breaking out of tradition

Tradition can feel like it grounds us, holds us safe on the familiar soil of our world; and there is such a lot of fear around disrespecting the past, its ways and inhabitants, those things they put themselves through to get us here. The seasons rhythmically comfort us like the rocking arms of a cradling mother, reassuring us that we are safe, held and nurtured in the embrace of something far bigger than we allow ourselves to accept that we are. Yet when we let go of all these as the determining factors of our experiences and allow the tightly coiled impulses of many lifetimes pull asunder, to limber up and snap out of their restraints and to leap where they will again, we put the spring back into life and we reach closer to our potential, like tiny steps suddenly made giant.

This can be exhilarating beyond words and, above all, sweeps us up in the knowing that whatever happens now is uniquely ours, not somebody else’s pattern. When we let go of old fixed patterns, it’s not that we are suddenly devoid of patterns in our lives…but, rather, that far more uniquely perfect, divinely inspired ones start to assert themselves through the rhythms of our lives. They sing their exquisite melodies through the so-called accidents of synchronicity and convergence, through intuition and quick-step impulses, delivering lyrics to a song we might have missed hearing altogether in the habitual hymnal of our old life. On hearing them, this becomes the point when life stops being conditional upon mundane circumstance and becomes something with its own set of wings. Continue reading

Do I even want to take this detour?

We all know how to follow our own best path and this has nothing whatsoever to do with weighing up pros and cons with our minds; its an insider job and more to do with ‘gut’ than mind. We can easily tell when we are on track because excitement starts to fizz in the stomach, we notice how all those most lovely, relaxed, creative feelings start to flow unimpeded again and how our innate power starts to rise up like a warm dancing flame from the base of the spine. Life becomes a divinely-led dance of incredibly good feelings and jaw-dropping synchronicity as we start to show up in just the right places at exactly the right time for the perfectly unexpected to happen. This can only happen when we are listening closely to our own tune… Continue reading

Turning history on its head

These last weeks, something made me dive back into that very old interest of mine, researching my family history…but not at all in the same way as I looked at this before. I had grown weary with this ‘hobby’ years … Continue reading

Dancing under fiery skies

As I prepared to dash out the door yesterday, already late for my appointment, I paused to grab a random handful of CDs for the car. One of them happened to be The verve’s ‘Urban Hymns’, an album I used … Continue reading

Unpeeled

I’ve never had a good feeling around limitation in any of its guises; be it the kind that directly undermines the most fundamental of life’s joys or the more subtle variety that takes the form of routine, timetables or commitment. … Continue reading
