Working with Crystal Grids – Day Four

Crystals have their own energetic field, just as humans do, and one of the great things about crystals is that you can also use them to create geometric shapes within which you can create an energetic room or field big enough to exert energy and influence over a wider space.  This technique is known as […]

Using Crystals to Access Information – Day Three

Using crystals is a great way to begin accessing information for yourself and others, and can gently open you up to greater levels of spiritual and psychic gifts and awakening. Although quartz crystals are the most common stone for this sort of connection, I believe that you need to work with the crystal you are […]

Healing with Crystals – Day Two

Today I’m going to look at some very simple healing techniques using crystals. These can be used for yourself, loved ones, and even for your pets.  My dogs both love having any form of energy work and I have even used crystals for my cows! Crystals for Emotional and Energetic Support: Crystals all have their […]

Getting to know your Crystal – Day One

Now that you’ve chosen your crystal, using the suggestions we covered yesterday, you’ll first need to cleanse it before we start work. Here are some tips on the care and cleansing of your crystals: Crystals absorb energy, just as they project it.  When you first receive a crystal, or if you have been working with […]

How to work with Crystals – a Four Day Exploration

Since I mentioned using crystals in the bath yesterday, I’ve had quite a lot of enquires about how to use crystals. This of course also makes Sokli, my fairy friend, very excited. So, over the next four days we’re going to explore how to choose a crystal, how to take care of it, and how […]

The Magic of an Epsom Salts Bath

One of my favourite things is soaking in an Epsom Salts bath after a long day of psychic work. It works to soothe me on all levels – body, mind and spirit. Because the magnesium from the Epsom Salts is absorbed directly through your skin it allows even people who find it hard taking magnesium […]

Writing your Dream Home into Existence

A man’s home is his castle ~ Proverb Everyone has a dream home in their mind – somewhere that will fulfill their needs, bring peace to their soul, and speak to the person they are or would like to be. I’m lucky enough to have found mine, but then again, luck didn’t create it – […]

Making Friends with Fairies

I remember when I first started to channel. This was twenty years ago, and I had read the first chapter of a book called Opening To Channel by Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer. Of course I was so eager to begin I never did read the rest of the book… My sister dutifully guided me through […]

A Guest Blog I’ve written for the lovely Brenda Marroy…

Qigong and the Old Hoop Pine

There is an old Hoop Pine outside my back door, next to the wooden shed that will soon become my new library and office.  It is the first tree that greets me each morning. When I moved here four and a half years ago I hadn’t yet begun to see auras around plants, animals and […]

A thought-provoking post on writing, reading and the philosophy of healing!

Dealing with Psychic Anxiety

Over the years I have come to recognise a certain set of feelings, to which I have given the name ‘Psychic Anxiety’. It’s a very unpleasant sensation that can last from an hour to a couple of days, and it is one of the least fantastic aspects of being spiritually and energetically sensitive. Oh, don’t […]

I love extending my vocabulary and today’s new word is one of my all-time favourites! Read on…

Wild Dogs and a little Philosophy

My morning meditation was interrupted by a sound no farmer ever wants to hear; the barking of wild dogs. It was still dark, and I could hear them close on the ridge behind me – quite a large pack in the paddock where my cows and their young calves are grazing. Not long after, the […]

A Cup of Tea and Comfort…

Living and working as a psychic can be quite draining, although I love what I do. It’s not dissimilar to any other ‘caring’ profession, where you are totally focused on the needs of others, in a way that leaves little time for yourself. I’ve learned that the best way to avoid burnout for me is […]

Writing as a Manifestation Tool

In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God and the word was God. ~ John 1:1 Words have power. Whether they are thought, spoken or written down, there is a great energy to words, and over the next six Mondays we are going to focus on ways to harness this power […]

Living as a Sensitive Soul

As most of you know, I’m psychic, and have been this way to varying degrees all my life. All of us are intuitive – that’s our birthright, and it’s hardwired into us. Even the most disconnected or ‘non-believing’ of us will still have gut feelings or hunches strong enough that we can acknowledge and act […]

Self Nurture in a Bowl – Easy Miso Soup

When I’m tired, or busy writing and don’t want to take too long away from the flow of words, I turn to miso soup. I can eat this stuff breakfast, lunch, dinner and all meals in between! My soup is never a hard and fast recipe – rather it’s a technique that lets you add […]

Sometimes Your Only Job is to Ask for Help

Problems are not the problem; coping is the problem. ~ Virginia Satir I have a friend going through a tough time right now. For her everything seems to be going wrong. There are substance abuse issues, and she thought by cleaning up and getting that out of the picture, somehow everything would be fixed.  But […]

Cow-eared Dreams and Hathors

I promised yesterday that I would write about one recurring dream I had as a small child. If I am honest, it was not one dream, dreamt over and over. It was one place, and one particular image, although the happenings in the dream changed – just as life differs from day to day, even […]

A gorgeous post on book ideas and how they happen and evolve, from the very talented Fiona McMillan

My second blogging gong – The Very Inspiring Blogger Award

The lovely danLrene from Work the Dream has nominated me for The Very Inspiring Blogger award. Thanks Deb! You’re a wonderful inspiration. I’m honoured, and truth be told, a little mystified that in the 89 days since I’ve started this blog I’ve had more than 23 000 hits already. Thank you, everyone, for supporting me, and […]

How You Can Change the World

I’m here with some good news.  You are powerful, and you can make a difference in our world! Have you noticed that much of the world media is focussed primarily upon the negative, and it builds a vibration of fear and uncertainty around our futures?  Many of us are reeling under the constant barrage of […]

Everyone has something special to share with the world!

What we are is God’s gift to us. What we become is our gift to God. ~ Eleanor Powell I have never met anyone who wasn’t unique in some way, who didn’t have a special gift to share with the world. The problem is that most people don’t acknowledge their gifts because they are always […]

Treasure in a Cardboard Box

Have you ever received an unexpected gift? I have, and it came from the carpark at Toombul Shopping Centre. In the picture above you can see the iconic ‘T’, torn down a few years ago.  If you follow the bitumen down behind the ‘T’ in the middle of the photograph, where it slopes away from […]

Fall down seven times, stand up eight…

This post is dedicated to the members of our Defence Forces, Emergency Services and their families, past and present, and to everyone who is facing hardship, no matter it’s nature. There is something that many people don’t know about courage. Something most people don’t know about strength, and resilience… We usually only find these qualities […]

Silver Lining – A journal exercise for finding the upside

Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful.  ~Buddha Writing is a powerful […]

The gifts of childhood often come wrapped in ugly paper…

I know, I know. Everyone blames everything on childhood. It’s a therapist’s favourite playground. I’m revisiting childhood with you today. Why? 2012 is a fantastic year for personal growth and for letting go of what no longer serves us.  These pains from our past can be really old wounds,  but they are still worth healing. So […]

Easy Lemonade Scone Recipe – for when friends drop by!

I call this recipe my ‘Hurry-Up Scones’.  I have much fancier recipes that call for delicate hands, careful measuring and so forth.  But I don’t have time for that today.  The phone has rung, friends are on their way, and my cake tin is woefully empty.  Hurry-Up Scones to the rescue! Here’s the basic recipe: […]

Give yourself a Free Pass

Congratulations!  I’ve just gifted you a Free Pass.  You might want to cut this out and store it in your wallet.  You may also want to pass this one on to someone else who would benefit from it. This is a magical ticket.  It allows you to decline a usual activity or responsibility, so that […]

Journal for Spiritual Clarity and Connection 4 – All about my Soul

You don’t have a soul.  You are a Soul.  You have a body.  ~C.S. Lewis Week 4:  All About My Soul We are all Spiritual Beings.  We cannot separate ourselves from our Spirituality, just as we cannot separate ourselves from our Physicality.  However, just as we can become physically unfit and unhealthy, we can also […]

So, when I’m not blogging on ‘Cauldrons and Cupcakes’, I’m blogging over here… Come visit our writing blog, ‘Sisters of the Pen’, and meet my wonderful creative compatriots!

On a roll, or, why I’m not blogging…

I usually get up at 4am, meditate, and then write.  Lately I’ve been blogging first and then writing (I classify writing as working on one of my books…). But this morning I am gripped by the plight of one of my characters.  I must get their story down onto the page.  I have ample tea, […]

Psychic Dogs and Chicken Recipes

Yes, I know that is rather a strange title, but I promise there’s a link! I have been in Brisbane for over a week, and I’m feeling long overdue to return to my farm. There are a few things I need to tidy up this morning before I go, then I shall pack the ute […]

Emotions and their impact on your health

When your mind can know peace, your body can know healing. ~ Nicole Cody (image by Evgeni Dinev) Many of my friends are healers. They come from widely different schools and philosophies of healing – general medical practitioners, environmental medicine specialists, acupuncturists, naturopaths, herbalists, body workers, nutritionalists and all manner of other modalities. Over the […]
