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 […]

Living in the Unknown

Summer is my favourite time of year. I love nothing more than being out of doors, feet to the earth, the warmth of the sun kissing my skin and a hint of breeze running gently through my hair. Somehow, this sensory experience of dancing with the elements, dancing with creation itself appears magnified throughout this […]

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 […]

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 […]

Easing Into 2017

After the New Year celebrations, I am slowly easing my way in to January. My youngest girls are back at school so I am able to enjoy some reflective time to quietly tune in and see what wants to come through as we stand in the wings of 2017 and this brand new cycle of […]

Endings and Completions

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. I got caught in a spin, putting everyone else’s needs in place, making myself small, quashing myself like a scrunched up paper ball which left little time or space for […]

Winter Solstice 12/12/16

The year of the wheel turns once again with the shortest day of the year and as it does so, it seems as if an internal switch has also been flicked on. Maybe it’s the spirit of Christmas, peace and goodwill to all men, but I feel an inner contentment as we head once more […]
