    Becoming a Rock of Self-Awareness

    The strangest thing happened when meditating this morning. I felt so so solid… It was like my energy got so huge and so dense that I could not move… My mind went mental, wrestling with this experience that surely can’t be ‘right’… Yet as I rested into it… and began to then journal from it… I realised I was embodying something I’ve been asking for… to know how to be so solidly me that I can not be shaken off…

    The Girl, The Goat & The Mirror

    “Who Am I?” the girl said to the goat. “A rescuer” the goat replied. “What do you mean? Who do I rescue?” “Why yourself of course. Your soul. You’re rescuing your soul from the darkness within.” “Oh, she replied. I didn’t know I had it in me… to rescue myself that is… In fact I didn’t know I was so lost.” “None of you do.” the goat replied. Slowly munching on the grass. “It’s why we gave you all the…

    From hologram to multidimensional being

    There was a girl who stood looking at her reflection in the puddle of water at her feet.  She was sad, lonely, tired… she felt as though she was living in this world and yet apart from it… it was as though she were a hologram co-existing like an overlay on top of human existence.  There was land and there were people around her and yet they could not touch nor see her, and she could not feel them. It…

    Remove the Shackles & Step onto Your Path

    Your path is calling you A message to those who are lost… yet can see the path ahead of them… You can see the path, it is so clear that in some ways it is the only path you can see before you.  And yet you stand, fixed to the start, fixed to the ground, stuck and feeling despair… your hands are over your head, your face is crewed up, your body is bent over… you can not move forwards. …

    Wake up to your Soul

    Be here now. Dear Souls up high. Flying above the sky searching, seeking. Where is home? They fly and soar and keep moving. Keep moving. For they are lost and seeking entry… into their earthly bodies. Open yourself to your soul. Invite your spirit in its full essence to come in to your physical form. You have one life. This life. This life is about bringing in, uniting your soul, spirit, your divinity. With the life you hold here on…

    A message from my soul on my birthday

    Today is my birthday. And for the first time in my life I’ve also been made aware that it is Lions Gate Day… this happens every year on the 8th of the 8th (August). Having looked it up, I can describe it best as this — Lions Gate is a day when there is a huge increase in energy flow between the spiritual realm and this physical earth… An energy that expands (y)our awakening… For the past week I’ve been…

    I don’t know! Does this sound familiar?!!!

    I don’t know!!! Has this been a demon phrase throughout your life?  Cos my G*d it has been for me! I have often been asked things to which the answer was ‘I don’t know’!!!  It’s made me feel like a failure, stupid, indecisive, flakey… you get the picture.  And I guess if you’re even drawn to reading this then you have a similar experience. In which case, my guess is that this could be a massive turning point for you…

    She felt disconnected from her body – and danced herself to Spiritual Embodiment

    She had a body, yet didn’t live in it. She lived outside, up in the sky. Her preference was for mystery, And hearing the sounds, of the universe pass by. The heavens gave her peace, Galaxy’s glittered hope and stars. Her imagination would roam free, Travelling through Venus and then Mars. She was alone, and yet not lonely, For she was surrounded by such energy. Friends from ancient, and lost worlds, Held a great, and powerful memory. Whether it was…

    “Who am I?” That dreaded question sparked when asked “Who are you? & What do you do?”

    You’ve been asked this before. Of yourself and by others. It’s a question you loath as it stumps you and falters. Perhaps though it’s also… a question for laughter. A question of comedy for there’s really no answer. You find yourself saying, well hey I don’t know. It’s not that I’ve neglected to find out an answer… For its a question I’ve asked – truly – over and over… Its a question I’ve journaled – till the pages can’t turn…

    The fear of being yourself – let your Higher Self show the way

    “I am scared” said the girl on the bridge… There was no one there, yet a hum of energy began to surround her… the clouds and vastness of the sky became dense in their swirling energy… “Of what?” said a voice “There is nothing to fear” The girl looked around… “who’s there”?  “I can’t see you”… “Don’t look with your eyes, feel with your senses” said the voice The girl closed her eyes yet could still see the atmosphere around her shifting… She felt a…

    Post-epiphany blues… Now what do I do with my old life?

    You’ve had an epiphany,and life doesn’t look the same…You’re old life is done,yet you still have the same name. On that workshop or retreat,everything felt just oh so clear…You knew without knowing,that there is nothing to fear. Yet now you are home,life feels clunky and odd…You’ve no idea how to be,no idea how or where to plod. It’s as though you’re in no man’s land,between heaven and hell…The new way is calling,but the old way holds it’s spell. How on…

    Initiation into motherhood: intuition, self-belief & standing strong

    I was genuinely excited and looking forward to going into labour, much to the amusement of many 😉  I’ve long held a positive view on natural birth, can put myself into a hypnotic trance and I know my body really well through almost 20yrs of yoga and body practices… so whilst I wasn’t totally deluded thinking it would be all fairy dust and daisy chains, I did figure I was pretty set up for it 😉  And so I planed…

    Embracing the Feminine in our Yoga Practice

    “It is important to restore the essential balance in the world between the masculine and feminine energies. The bird of humanity cannot fly with one wing” Vivekananda A lot of the world we live in is masculine and this is also reflected in the yoga on offer, which traditionally has a strong masculine slant. There is a growing movement for balance – both internally and in the world around us. Integrating a feminine yoga practice is a way of redressing…

    The serene power of finding your flow

    Well for starters, NO ONE wants a meaningless, stressful, unsatisfying life. Actually I’ll caveat that – some people rather like to have something to justifiably whinge about… heck we all enjoy it sometimes (if we’re honest ;). But a long haul soiree of this experience sucks arse and probably delivers you somewhere in the vicinity of ‘my life is over’, ‘please God take me now’, ‘why oh why oh WHY MEEEEEEEEEE’. Ultimately it’s  form of discomfort or pain… and as someone…

    Why addiction is not always bad for you

    What do you do when you love something and the ‘world’ tells you ‘but you shouldn’t do that – it’s so baaaaad for you’? Do you succomb and say ‘ok, you know best‘. Or do you say ‘wait a second’  – which is a nice, polite and Buddhist bunny mindfullness alternative to the more commonly used ‘f*ck-off’  🙂  – my life, my needs, what’s actually right for me in this situ? In this case I’ll chatting about coffee (but you could add ciggies,…

    Is there such a thing as a ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ decision?

    How on EARTH does one make the right decision? This question opens a giant a bog-mire (if that’s even a word) of self doubt, angst and worry for most people (and yes moi is included 🙂 ) Three clients have spoken about this this week – in very different forms – and they fall into three rather classic categories – which in a flowery round about way can be described like this:
