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 […]

Get Comfortable with being Uncomfortable

They say you are not the same person you were a year ago. Around twelve moons ago, my soul was lost and battered. It needed nurturing, tenderness and to be handled like a delicate flower. I gently swathed it, protecting it from any further harm. Our souls know what they need to heal and after […]

Harvest Prayers and Miracles

The Autumn Equinox has passed and a new season is upon us. Whereas, Spring gently melds into Summer, the transition at this time of year somehow appears more noticeable with a late harvest of the fields, the leaves beginning to colour and apples dropping from the trees.

A new level of awakening

Moving into my new space – a change that represents the end of a long cycle – has unlocked a whole new set of emotions, feelings and understanding. It’s amazing the difference knowing my life has moved on has made. It feels like a new level of awakening. As though I’ve taken off a pair […]

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 […]
