I want to talk about belief, and the loss of belief, because I think that this can be one of the scariest and most difficult things to endure. Beliefs, whether secular, religious, New Age or whatever, are the corner stone of our conscious lives. They inform our thoughts, actions, interactions and our choices. They can… Read More Why Losing Belief Isn’t Always Bad
I’ve been doing so much reflecting lately trying to figure out what changes I need to make in my life to align it truthfully with my soul, but it hasn’t really helped. More than anything I feel that my wheels are just spinning but not getting anywhere. When we aren’t happy with something we want… Read More Here’s to the Adventure!
Love. Romance. I’m definitely not an expert in either, and I have definitely spent far too much of my life hiding behind idealism and romantic fantasy. It could never be as good as it is in my head so why bother, right? Wrong! I am choosey, but not in a shallow way. I only want… Read More Love. Romance. What’s it all about?
Releasing attachment to the outcome is a concept that, for a while, I found it difficult to wrap my mind around. How can you be focused and motivated about your goals or your desires and not be attached to the result? How can you practice visualisation and manifestation and not want the exact thing you… Read More Letting Go of the Outcome
An Ode to Wild Woman (on Wrekin hill). Wandering the wild took her closer to home; it allowed her to find more than she’d ever known. As the wind swept on by she started to see more than views on high, she saw what she could be. Wild and free. Wild and free. Her feet… Read More An Ode to Wild Woman
I can’t believe that we’re coming to the end of another year. This post-Christmas, pre-New Year time is a veritable cocktail of emotions as we look at what has been and think about what there could be to come. I myself feel a mixture of pride for what I achieved, lamentations for what didn’t work… Read More End of Year Thoughts
I went to a riveting panel discussion recently regarding our relationship with Nature. We’re not talking about gardens here, or pleasure walks at the local National Trust: we’re talking about wild, non-cultivated, unencumbered, there-might-be-a-bear-in-the-woods Nature. One of the speakers, Nina Lyon, made a comment about our inability to get truly lost in our home country… Read More The Importance of Getting Lost
So, after a short hiatus that turned into a long hiatus, I finally feel I have my writing mojo back! Hurray! How wonderful it feels to have the creativity flowing again. For quite a while this year I felt blocked, unable to formulate my thoughts into concrete sentences. There have been a lot of changes… Read More I’m back!
No matter what else is going on in your life, be the person who fights for you. I know this isn’t always easy, especially for people who have to face a lot of strife and difficulty inflicted by others, but you have the right to be your own heroine. Treat yourself with kindness, spread love… Read More Monday Sunshine
Be completely honest and non-judgemental when reflecting this weekend. We often make choices or create habits that don’t help us to reach inner peace. This is OK – it’s all about learning. Look at what you need to do, and then ask yourself how you can make any changes, let things go, or implement new… Read More Weekend Journaling
