Over the next seven nights, let me send you energy, healing, love and light…
There is a part of me that will forever want to be walking under autumn leaves, carrying a briefcase containing the works of Shakespeare and Yeats and a portable chess set. I will pass an old tree under which once on a summer night I lay on the grass with a fragrant young woman […]

Smell is a potent wizard that transports you across thousands of miles and all the years you have lived. The odors of fruits waft me to my southern home, to my childhood frolics in the peach orchard. Other odors, instantaneous and fleeting, cause my heart to dilate joyously or contract with remembered grief. Even […]
The moon is queen of everything. She rules the oceans, rivers, rain. When I am asked whose tears these are; I always blame the moon. ― Lucille Clifton Hey, Lovelies. Our community is one of sensitive souls, and we are often more influenced by the subtle energies of the cosmos than many of the people […]
Good things take time. Great things take a little longer. ~ Some wise anonymous person Hey, Lovelies. As you know, I had a crazy and slightly disturbing dream yesterday, the echoes of which are still rattling around in my head.

No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path. Gautama Buddha Hello, Lovelies! Have you ever had a rough day? Silly question. Of course you have. Like you, I have my occasional difficult patch, that place in my life where emotionally (and sometimes physically) I […]

It’s funny: I always imagined when I was a kid that adults had some kind of inner toolbox full of shiny tools: the saw of discernment, the hammer of wisdom, the sandpaper of patience. But then when I grew up I found that life handed you these rusty bent old tools – friendships, prayer, […]
Every morning I am reminded of the magic all around us. It’s right here outside my bedroom window.
Affirmations are our mental vitamins, providing the supplementary positive thoughts we need to balance the barrage of negative events and thoughts we experience daily. Hey, Lovelies. You may already know that one of my favourite affirmations is this: Everything I want is always on special. I know, it’s not particularly ‘spiritual’ but boy is […]
Feeling out of sorts, triggered, argumentative or emotional? Here’s why…
Hey Lovelies, I have two great things going on this weekend – big healing meditations and a sale! Check them out in this post.
Dreams are like the old stories where wolves are seekers always running, and women carry fire in their bare hands and light the dark paths before them. Old stories hold that the birds will fly all the miles of the world to tell your secrets to the rising moon, and men will walk over […]
The shadow is needed now more than ever. We heal the world when we heal ourselves, and hope shines brightest when it illuminates the dark. ― Sasha Graham Hey, Lovelies.

An unsettled person will constantly rant about inconsequential things. ― Charmaine J Forde Hey, Lovelies. I have a full day of medical appointments today. Test results, action plans, and who knows what else awaits? I’d love to say that I’m calm, but I’m unsettled, and I will be until the day is done and I […]
Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you. ~ Anne Lamott Hey, Lovelies. I have a favourite way to start my day, or to give myself time for me during a busy or stressful day, or a restful pause and reflection time at day’s end. It’s pretty […]
One thing I’ve learned? Always pay attention to that icky feeling!
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.~ Lao Tzu Hey, Lovelies. Did you see yesterday’s post? Would you like some extra love, positive energy and support at this time? This week has been about upgrading your thinking, about being bold with your decisions and actions, and […]
I don’t want to live in the kind of world where we don’t look out for each other. Not just the people that are close to us, but anybody who needs a helping hand. I cant change the way anybody else thinks, or what they choose to do, but I can do my […]
Get out your oracle or tarot cards and join me to do a simple guiding spread for the next six months!
There is no perfection, only beautiful versions of brokenness. ~ Shannon L. Alder Hey, Lovelies. Have you got a dream that just isn’t happening? A problem that just isn’t fixing? A situation that just isn’t resolving? Or an idea you just can’t stop thinking about? There’s something in the air right now, with the […]
The things that matter stay with you, seep into your skin. ~Christina Baker Kline Hey, Lovelies. I want to have a quiet chat with you today. I want to reassure you. Your spiritual practice matters. I know, you feel self-conscious about it at times. You can feel awkward and unsure, and a bit silly. […]
There is a lot to be said for time off, meditation and crystals!
Listen with curiosity. Speak with honesty. Act with integrity. The greatest problem with communication is we don’t listen to understand. We listen to reply. When we listen with curiosity, we don’t listen with the intent to reply. We listen for what’s behind the words. ~ Roy T. Bennett Hey, Lovelies. Maybe I’ll speak to […]
When the Sun of compassion arises darkness evaporates and the singing birds come from nowhere. Amit Ray Hey, Lovelies.I woke this morning feeling distressed. Even my meditation did not soothe it.

This challenge is being run as a course inside my Journeymaker Academy. You can enrol here. The actual lessons start on January 28, and […]
To my mind, ‘magic’ is the hard-to-define quality of the things that stir up mystical feelings like amazement, curiosity, imagination, and above all wonder. Magic is that which renders something beautiful in a spiritual sense. It is that which makes one feel as if the world is more than it is presently understood to be, […]
Jungle rain had no beginning or end; it grew like foliage from the sky, branching and arching to the earth, sometimes in solid thickets entangling the islands, and other times, in tendrils of blue mist curling out of coastal clouds. The jungle breathed an eternal green that fevered men until they dripped sweat the way […]

Here’s a simple ritual, using crystals, meditation and intention, to help set you up well for the coming year. Feel free to share with your woo-woo friends!
A ritual is the enactment of a myth. And, by participating in the ritual, you are participating in the myth. And since myth is a projection of the depth wisdom of the psyche, by participating in a ritual, participating in the myth, you are being, as it were, put in accord with that wisdom, which […]
Most of us are not raised to actively encounter our destiny. We may not know that we have one. As children, we are seldom told we have a place in life that is uniquely ours alone. Instead, we are encouraged to believe that our life should somehow fulfill the expectations of others, that we will […]
A wonderful gift may not be wrapped as you expect. Jonathan Lockwood Huie Hello, Lovelies, So here we are – another Christmas is upon us. It’s a joyful time for some, and a trying time for others, and I wanted to acknowledge that, and to remind you that there is always a place here at […]
People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.Give the world […]
A fine glass vase goes from treasure to trash, the moment it is broken. Fortunately, something else happens to you and me. Pick up your pieces. Then, help me gather mine. Vera Nazarian Hey Lovely, After my recent posts I’ve had a lot of messages from people who feel invisible, without value, or who have […]
I don’t want to live in the kind of world where we don’t look out for each other. Not just the people that are close to us, but anybody who needs a helping hand. I cant change the way anybody else thinks, or what they choose to do, but I can do my bit. charles […]
I needn’t have worried about potentially missing last night’s lunar eclipse. I had my very own eclipse alarm!
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. H. Jackson Brown Jr Hey, Lovelies! With the Full Moon upon […]
Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself. Leo Tolstoy Hey, Lovelies.

When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed. Maya Angelou Hey, Lovelies. I was sitting in my packing room last night. The packing room is a spare bedroom that has been turned into a workspace, with shelving against every wall, a big table for wrapping, and everything at my fingertips to pack and […]
Boundaries are, in simple terms, the recognition of personal space. Asa Don Brown Hey, Lovelies. I found myself in a social situation recently with people I did not know. Of course, one of the first things people usually ask in these circumstances is ‘What do you do?’ I’ll be honest. I’m guarded with new people. […]
“Smile, breathe and go slowly.” Thich Nhat Hanh So, Lovelies, I am sure some of you will relate to what I am about to share. I’m a Highly Sensitive Soul. I am sure you may be one too. Because of my sensitivity, my intuitive and psychic abilities, I am able to connect deeply with people. […]

As spiritual searchers we need to become freer and freer of the attachment to our own smallness in which we get occupied with me-me-me. Pondering on large ideas or standing in front of things which remind us of a vast scale can free us from acquisitiveness and competitiveness and from our likes and dislikes. If […]

One of the things I have always loved to do is to put my crystals out under the sky to absorb energy from the celestial bodies above, as well as the […]
The shaman had taught me how to set a strong intention each time I had a vision. I had to ask for the help I needed. “This is how spirit works,” she had said to me with a smile. “Spirit is ethical. You have to ask in order to receive.” Meggan Watterson – Mary Magdalene […]
Believe something and the Universe is on its way to being changed. Because you’ve changed, by believing. Once you’ve changed, other things start to follow. Isn’t that the way it works? Diane Duane Hello, Lovelies. Right now we have an astrological conjunction in the skies above us. The Pleiades constellation of seven stars has come […]
Trees that are slow to grow bear the best fruit. Moliere Hey, Lovelies.

Elbert Hubbard Friends, Your kind words, your messages of friendship and support, the sharing of your own shames and insecurities and fears and hard experiences, were a balm for my tired hurting heart yesterday. I’m grateful for you, and for our friendship. […]
Even in times of trauma, we try to maintain a sense of normality until we no longer can. That, my friends, is called surviving. Not healing. We never become whole again … we are survivors. If you are here today… you are a survivor. But those of us who have made it thru hell and […]
The Wounded Inner Child is the primary gateway to healing and integration. When you invite your woundedness out of subversiveness and into your awareness you finally begin to honor the past pain. You also minimize its contractive influence on your life. And you begin to offer yourself the potential of something more. Markus William Kasunich […]

To someone who doesn’t understand growth, it would look like complete destruction. Cynthia Occelli Hey, Lovelies! 2021 brings a turbulent and unsettled year ahead, but one thing is certain – it’s a […]
Home wasn’t a set house, or a single town on a map. It was wherever the people who loved you were, whenever you were together. Not a place, but a moment, and then another, building on each other like bricks to create a solid shelter that you take with you for your entire life, wherever […]

Dwell on the beauty of life. Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them. Marcus Aurelius Hello, Lovelies, December energies encourage you to find time for yourself, to rest and renew.

Thomas Lloyd Qualls Hey, Lovelies!Today we are under the influence of the New Moon in Sagittarius and […]
If I have one piece of advice to give you all about what to search for in your quest for What Next, it’s to find where the line blurs between hard work and happiness for you. To find that thing where working hard at it makes you happy, and where you’re happy to work hard […]
Know that you are loved ❤ Hey, Lovely i know sometimes life can get you down you can feel so small that you wonder if anyone knows you’re here you might even wonder if anyone cares life’s burdens may weigh upon you until you wonder how you’ll ever take another step until you wonder if […]
Since we all have varying degrees of tolerance for pain, and have equally varied experiences with different types of pain, it makes the scale feel kind of meaningless — especially when you consider that the person trying to ascertain how much pain the patient is in has his or her own experiences with pain that […]
“They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world: someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for.” Tom Bodett Hi, Lovelies! Feel like catching up for a cuppa, some comfort and company and a good chat? Each fortnight I hold a free gathering online, which is […]

I’m delighted to announce The […]

Who’s to say that dreams and nightmares aren’t as real as the here and now?” John Lennon Hi, Lovelies! Feel like catching up for a cuppa, some comfort and company and […]
Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness concerning all acts of initiative and creation. There is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans; that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one […]
Let me ask you outright, gentle reader, if there have not been hours, indeed whole days and weeks of your life, during which all your usual activities were painfully repugnant, and everything you believed in and valued seemed foolish and worthless? E.T.A. Hoffmann Hello, Lovely. Many of my community have been asking me if there […]
Outside the open window The morning air is all awash with angels. Richard Wilbur Hello, Lovelies. Mornings here at the farm are a quiet affair. The sunlight slants golden fingers that edge out the darkness and soften the gloom of dawn until you can make out the shapes of trees and cows. Birds call to […]
The amazing thing is that every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And, the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics: You are all stardust. You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t […]
