…then a wonderful thing happened

What began as an exercise in practicality became infinite in its potential just as soon as I stopped worrying about “how much” I would get back in material terms. Once that limiting idea (how it trips us up!) had been dispensed with, the free-flowing rewards were as exponential as they were immeasurable as they were available to all parties and there was such a strong sense that this was only the beginning… Continue reading

Finding my sweet spot

So, as an artist, what do I most want to do…do I want to present it all on an equal footing, as though you were standing there in that garden with me, getting to choose which blade of grass to examine closely next? (I tend to think that would make me into someone who delivers visual information, documentary fashion…but not an artist.) Or do I want to share what I, personally, focussed on and so experienced there because it was so high-frequency it overwhelmed me with love and appreciation of life and I want to dole that out like a tonic to all the world? The same goes for life, do I want to see the whole picture, or do I elect to find my own personal sweet spot and choose to stay there, as much as possible, modelling this way of being (not that this is why I do it) to anyone who cares to notice how good it can feel to be this way? Why do I suspect there’s more to this topic than meets the eye; that there’s pure alchemy at work when we, each of us, elect to seek out our own sweet spot and make it into our home, our very way of being, the thing that determines how we spend our time, what we give our thoughts to, how much joy, love and gratitude we feel every day… Continue reading

Absolute healing

Probably the most comprehensive, coherent and powerful post on healing that I have ever shared drawing on everything I have come to know about achieving wholeness within a physical body. Far too vast to summarise, far too important not to … Continue reading

Shaken not stirred…obviously the way we like it

As I wake up this morning to what I find I already knew before I opened my eyes, it seems we have chosen the route of most entropy in order to evolve. Not what so many of us wanted; not … Continue reading

At times like these

Its at times like this that the rainbow bridge that is our collective experience becomes most manifest; and that bridge (whatever it happens to look like…it might appear like no other rainbow we have ever seen…) is the fourth dimensional … Continue reading

Blasting love into all the darkest corners

Both inside and out, I realised, I had met such an opportunity this weekend…a cosmically orchestrated invitation NOT to return to old reactions, those same old patterns of fear and hatred and obliteration, but to go in deeper and with my heart wide open. By starting with what we know, the familiar, the relatable, we get to follow similar threads into deeper corners, less relatable places but where the message is still the same, the opportunity still one to meet, to hear something out, to recognise one’s own self blinking back at you from the darkness and to love that frightened and cornered part of yourself back to health. When a situation seems chronic – whether a chronic illness or an unfolding catastrophe in our world – the opportunity is that, exactly like a Trojan horse, these ‘awful’ things can take you to the very root of the ‘problem’, right in so deep that the opportunity to blast the light of love into all the very darkest places, the very source of the ‘illness’, is the very gift at the heart of things, just waiting to opened; an invitation to heal and transform from the inside out.

Making friends with pink

All my life, if offered a choice of something in a selection of colours, I would quickly exclude the pink from the running…like it simply wasn’t a choice; not for me. Too girlie, to stereotype, so many unfortunate connotations attached … Continue reading

Love swept

My final painting of 2014 felt like it had saved itself up for last at the end of a year that was all about shift and transformation. This one came directly from the soul and took on an almost surreal … Continue reading

Walking a spiral, feeling in colour: my life with synaesthesia

More than twenty years ago, I tripped upon a word that professed to label a range of sensory experiences that had been my personal “norm” for all of my life. As a young child, I started to suspect it wasn’t … Continue reading

Love, light and Italy

Have just spent the third evening of the month of May enjoying the film of the 1922 novel by Elizabeth Von Arnim entitled “The Enchanted April“…and so am a little too late to achieve the synchronistic timing of an April viewing … Continue reading
