Fragments

“I have made a pact with the night, I have felt it softly healing me.” ~ Aimé Césaire Here in Arizona it’s harder to sleep that I would have imagined. I think that night is helping you, but it’s sending me mad. Each night I go to bed, exhausted, ready, eyes already closing. Each night, […]

The Energies of February – 2018

“Oh, it’s delightful to have ambitions. I’m so glad I have such a lot. And there never seems to be any end to them– that’s the best of it. Just as soon as you attain to one ambition you see another one glittering higher up still. It does make life so interesting.”  ~  L.M. Montgomery, Anne of […]

The Eagles and the Crystals

“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.

It’s Finished – Our Mala of Love

“Be not forgetful of prayer. Every time you pray, if your prayer is sincere, there will be new feeling and new meaning in it, which will give you fresh courage, and you will understand that prayer is an education.” ~ Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov “It does not matter how long you are spending on […]

Ritual for Connecting with Your Ancestors

“When we have passed a certain age, the soul of the child that we were and the souls of the dead from whom we sprang come and shower upon us their riches and their spells, asking to be allowed to contribute to the new emotions which we feel and in which, erasing their former image, […]

Musings on Early Morning Magic

“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.” ~ W.B. Yeats   I am sitting on the veranda of my retreat bedroom, looking out over the quiet, still bay. It’s cool this morning, and cloudy. A ribbon of pink light is beginning to colour the sky, slowly growing […]

Journal Challenge Week 2 – Lightbulbs and Lightning Strikes

“SOWING LIGHTNING Seize Bolts of lightning from the sky And plant them in fields of life. They will grow like tender sprouts of fire.

Guided Meditation for Anchoring into the Expanding Universe

Unplugging for the Super Moon

“Sometimes I feel like if you just watch things, just sit still and let the world exist in front of you – sometimes I swear that just for a second time freezes and the world pauses in its tilt. Just for a second. And if you somehow found a way to live in that second, […]

Me and That Owl

“Turn your wounds into wisdom.” ~ Oprah Winfrey “The unexamined life is not worth living.” ~ Socrates   Last Monday, in my Doctor’s rooms, I received the best kind of news. Although I am still unwell, I have definitely turned the corner in my struggle against Lyme disease. I am no longer dying. I am healing. My life is once again unfurling […]

The Owl and the Banshee

“Fairies in Ireland are sometimes as big as we are, sometimes bigger, and sometimes, as I have been told, about three feet high.”  ~ W.B. Yeats   As I have been writing my Kimberley memoir, tumbling words onto the page at all hours of the day and night, I find myself I need to talk again about […]

Auntie and the Fairy Mound

“Come away, O human child! To the waters and the wild With a faery, hand in hand, For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand.”  ~ W.B. Yeats, The Collected Poems Another post that links in to my Kimberley Story… Like most stories, mine is not a linear one. It would be so much […]

Darling, she’s not okay

Sometime in your life you will have been all of these.”  ~ Dr. Robert H. Goddard 1882-1945 Yesterday I went down to the local shopping mall nice and early. I needed to […]

Understanding Soul Groups

“Love is the voice under all silences, the hope which has no opposite in fear; the strength so strong mere force is feebleness: the truth more first than sun, more last than star…” ~ E.E. Cummings I have not seen the Orchard Man for months, but I was not surprised when he walked out of the […]

The Owl and the Eagle

“Baby eagles can never soar under their family’s wing.” ~ Liu Yang I woke yesterday morning to find a Powerful Owl sitting on the clothesline in the last shreds of darkness, feasting on something caught between its powerful talons.

The Sound of Smoke

  “Do you not think that there are things which you cannot understand, and yet which are; that some people see things that others cannot? But there are things old and new which must not be contemplated by men´s eyes, because they know – or think they know – some things which other men have […]

Outback Australia – A Snapshot

“We all grow up with the weight of history on us. Our ancestors dwell in the attics of our brains as they do in the spiraling chains of knowledge hidden in every cell of our bodies.” ~ Shirley Abbott I picked up a stone yesterday and put it in my pocket. I walked on a […]

Calling me back…

Who do you tell?

“That is part of the beauty of all literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you’re not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong.”  ~ F. Scott Fitzgerald It’s taken me a long time to begin to share my story… For the longest while I never even thought I would. But then I […]

Someone to watch over me…

“It is the custom of every good mother after her children are asleep to rummage in their minds and put things straight for next morning, repacking into their proper places the many articles that have wandered during the day. If you could keep awake (but of course you can’t) you would see your own mother […]

Before we get back to Owls, let’s talk Fairies!

“There are things  that make no sense, that seem unreal, that can’t be grasped,  or understood, or explained, that maybe don’t even exist… And still, somehow, those wonderful things touch and change our lives. Isn’t it strange?”  ― Richelle E. Goodrich, Secrets of a Noble Key Keeper   I present this information to you only as story, […]

The Lady Who Walked Out of My Past

“I sustain myself with the love of family.”  ~ Maya Angelou One late afternoon in April this year, the dusky sunset was shimmery and luminous.  A light rain fell, misting the cold air and making us hurry to light a fire and get inside where it was warm. That evening the moon rose brightly amid patchy […]

The Silver-Blue Light of Love

“Love seeketh not itself to please, Nor for itself hath any care, But for another gives its ease, And builds a Heaven in Hell’s despair.” ~ WILLIAM BLAKE   If I’m going to tell you about the Owls and the Orchard Man, I’d better first tell you about the Silver-Blue Light.  It was probably one of […]

Waking from a long sleep…

“You can only come to the morning through the shadows.” ~J.R.R. Tolkien   I woke up this morning, stretched my arms out, yawned widely and realised that something has shifted as I slept last night.  My fever’s broken, my pain has eased, and my mind is bright. It’s a great relief.  The last few days […]

Midnight Visits

“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” ~ Lao Tzu   I’ve been herxing badly the past few days. Herxing is a strong physical reaction to the die-off of pathogens, which release toxins into the body. It’s a good thing – or so I tell myself.  It […]

Comfort comes in many forms…

I drove from my farm to Brisbane very early this morning, leaving before dawn.  To be honest, I was feeling a little flat. It’s something I know you can all relate to.  Sometimes life just weighs you down a little. As much as I love my work, I felt sad to be leaving my husband […]
