Why Write Anyway?

A few days ago I was asked why do you want to write a blog? I write for many reasons I write for me and I write for you. I write for myself because I simply enjoy it. I love the catharsis of writing. It’s a powerful medicine, a mechanism to finding my own voice […]

Let’s Celebrate

Endings are important, aren’t they? I’m learning to love them for without them there are no new beginnings. Today is one such ending. As the wheel of the year comes full circle, many of us celebrate the cross quarter between the autumnal equinox and the winter solstice, known as Samhain. It’s a good time to […]

Moving on – Surrendering to chaos and finding alignment

I’ve been in a period of chaos lately. I moved house, stepping from one chapter into another. It has been chaotic.

The Halfway Point – Reflections on starting, finishing and lessons in between.

When starting this project, ‘A Year for My Soul’ I set a clear intention of having no deadlines or rigid timetable. The last thing I wanted was to put pressure on myself; I wanted connecting to the rhythm of my soul to be a spontaneous, natural process, where I honoured my own flow. Simplicity was […]

Polarity, Parenting and Pathways

Last week saw the Spring Equinox when day and night are of almost equal measures. I had intended to write at the time, as the Equinox felt like a significant marker in the Year Of My Soul. Yet I was busy. Making other things a priority over my writing. Initially I berated myself for not […]
