From Force to Flow

By | January 27th, 2017|Acceptance, Simplicity, Surrender|

Oh the irony! How could I have forgotten - Simplicity - one of my three chosen key words. But forget I did. Somehow, over the past couple of weeks I found myself caught up in that sticky energy of 'trying' to write my next blog post. Despite numerous attempts the words simply didn't flow. After [...]

Endings and Completions

By | December 29th, 2016|Acceptance, Simplicity, Soul|

The last few days leading up to Christmas I noticed myself falling into old patterns and behaviours; simplicity temporarily slipped out of the back door.

As we enter the last month of the Gregorian calendar I experienced the same sensation this morning feeling the [...]

Happy Thanksgiving and Creating Healthy Practices

By | November 24th, 2016|Uncategorized|

To all my friends across the pond, Happy Thanksgiving Day. Having an attitude of gratitude and giving thanks has been one of my regular practices for many years. My friend Sam Russell came up with the concept Thank You Thursday to boost her social media interaction and the idea kind of stuck and became a [...]

A Picture Is Forming

By | November 22nd, 2016|Abbi -Louise Marlowe, Acceptance, Surrender|

A picture is forming, in my mind's eye that is. At last I can see what I want to create. A glimpse of what it looks like. I can't help but wonder if this how an artist starts out? Do they have a clear image in their mind as they stare at a blank canvas [...]
