A week-long course in journalling – Day 4

So many things rattle around in our brain, and in that crowded space they are never given air or light or room to grow.  Today we are going to capture some of those wild thoughts and imaginings, those some-time longings and almost forgotten wishes, and give them roots in the rich soil of our journal. […]

A week-long course in journalling – Day 3

Australia is the land of ‘droughts and flooding rains’.  Trust me, when I say that this plays havoc with our storm-water drains! (Image by prozac1) “Ah, yes, Nicole,” I can hear you thinking, “but what has that got to do with journalling?”  Everything, my dear. Day 3 – Clearing the pipes Think of the pathway […]

A week-long course in journalling – Day 2

So here we are – ourselves, an empty book, and a few old-fashioned writing implements.  Over the next week I’m going to give you some techniques for extracting what’s on the inside of you and pouring it out onto those pages.  Exciting, huh? Huh? Hello?  Yes… I know most of you are eager to get […]

A week-long course in journalling – Day 1

Want to join me for a week of free journalling instruction?  I’m a big fan of journalling, and have filled endless diaries and notebooks over the last 20-odd years.

Thai Sticky Black Rice Recipe – a breakfast favourite

I’m all for nourishing the soul with food, and this is one of my all-time favourite recipes.  This rice dish can be eaten for breakfast, or as a dessert.  In fact, it’s good anytime. You’ll need: 1 cup of black glutinous rice, 2.5 cups of water, some palm sugar or soft brown sugar, salt, a can […]

My first Blog Award – ‘The Versatile Blogger’

I received a nomination for my first ever blog award.  A bit of a shock considering I’ve only been blogging for a fortnight, but what a wonderful way to start 2012. I was nominated by the writer of Halfway Between The Gutter And The Stars, a blog that celebrates two things dear to my heart; the […]

January 1, 2012 – Contemplation, dreaming and divination

Happy New Year, and welcome to the energies of 2012!  New Year’s Day is always a special time for me. I like to welcome the day with meditation, and then spend some time over the course of the day contemplating my year ahead, asking for spiritual guidance, and writing in my journal.  For me it […]

Living authentically in 2012

Most people I know who are ruled by ‘time’ (days governed by clocks, diaries, and heavy scheduling) are disconnected from themselves, each other, and the natural world.  Work, rush and worry occupy every space in their lives.  There is never enough time!  And that feeling of ‘running out of time’ always leads to pressure, stress, […]

Simple 2012 Guided Meditation for you

I’ve recorded a very homespun meditation for you, to help you connect with the energies of this new year.  All you need to do is sit comfortably, close your eyes, and listen to my voice guiding you through the process.  You’ll find it easy, even if you’ve never really meditated before. It also uses the […]

The gift of impermanence OR Live like you’re dying…

A few years ago I suffered a heart attack.  It was induced by a virus, and it absolutely floored me.  I ignored the symptoms the evening they began, and it was not until late the next day that I took myself to hospital.  As I lay in Accident and Emergency with doctors and nurses fussing […]
