When I want to blame others or the system or the world for not being what I want them to be, I remind myself to be the role model I’m longing for. I cannot control anyone else, so at least I can take responsibility to BE what I want myself, and even better, contribute what I can to better the situation for everyone.
Many times, I’ve been hurt and disappointed by people I considered...
On today’s dark moon I celebrate MENSTRUAL BLOOD, mine and that of all women.
At this turning point of the lunar cycle, I acknowledge the gift of the Earth goddess. She who is in touch with Nature, her own WILD NATURE.
For so much of my life as a woman I didn't understand the gifts of my monthly cycle.
I felt shame. I hated the inconvenience and embarrassment of my bleed.
I bought into the...
As I sat in front of him, he invited me home to my body, my heart and my soul.
On the eve of my birthday, he invited me to Temple, to celebrate this sacred life in ceremony and ritual. It was the 1 July.
Candles, roses, crystals, symbols on the altar, beautiful cloths ...
In truth the Temple revealed itself through our intentions, our presence and the vibration of our bodies.
As I met his body,...
As I woke from a dream this morning, I felt unsettled by the clarity of the message.
“Don’t try to wear other people’s shoes that are too big for you.”
In my dream I felt immense disappointment realizing the shoes were too big. I had imagined them fitting like a glove, embracing my feet for the onward journey.
I felt deep shame too, trying to fit into...
“He has loved me since he was 15 years old and he loves me more today than ever before.” At 86, she sits tenderly on the edge of the massage table, holding back the tears.
I’ve heard the story many times before. There’s hardly a week that goes by without her mentioning how much they love each other. And I see it.
This morning her heart pours out again,...
Re-Sourcing. Womb to Womb. Heart to Heart. Face to Face. With myself. With the Earth. In order to rise again, more deeply rooted, with my aching heart, open to listen and to learn to love.
If, like me, you're feeling overwhelmed at times, it's because IT IS OVERWHELMING!
If, like me, you're feeling like it's too much at times to keep yourself open to feel everything, it's because IT IS TOO...
May I be joyful in a world of such devastating sorrow? Some days I feel shame for my privileges, health and happiness. But shame serves no-one. Instead, it stands in the way of allowing full grief and sorrow to be felt, as well as joy and gratitude. Shutting it all down is to deny life and to self-poison.
Today I cultivate wholeheartedness, allowing both joy and sorrow to have their full place...
Welcoming every day with gratitude. Finishing every day with gratitude. Is your gratitude authentic?
I notice this strange attitude we often have toward our own health and happiness, abundance and prosperity, in the West at least. (This makes it difficult to manifest our dreams.)
Our happiness and prosperity is very often laden with:
Hello, who are you today? What is important to you? What makes you vibe and thrive? What do you long for? What are you struggling with? How would you like to engage with me? In what way are we the same?
After many weeks and months of separation, we will meet again. And, for sure, you have changed. I have changed. We have changed. The world has changed.
Can we meet as if for the first time,...
In what way are we the same - you and me? How do I mirror you? What do you see in me, that reflects a part of you? I'm genuinely curious.
You see, you are me, cleverly disguised as you. And I am you, cleverly disguised as me.
I need you, so, to see and know myself.
What if we constantly replaced the questions, "In what way am I different to you?" or "In what way are you different to...
