Surrendering To The Flow Of Life

A strong theme emerged after an inspirational and enlightening session with a dear friend and client on Christmas Eve. The theme was surrender, and it seemed clear that there is a need for all of us to surrender to the flow of life much more. This is not about giving up or feeling like a victim, but it is more about swimming with the current rather than against it. Often our minds and our hearts are in conflict about the decisions, choices and options available to us. We can become paralysed in indecision and fear if we do not step

Reflections On The Spirit of Christmas

I always like to take a little time out to write over Christmas. I also like to take the time to send out healing to one and all (humans, animals, plants, the seas, the earth, the heavens etc). In many ways, the Christmas celebrated today by so many is a commercial and physical over-indulgence. The Christmas spirit seems more about indulgence in spirit of the alcoholic kind than it does a spiritual celebration. I am not Christian, and for me the Winter Solstice holds more personal and spiritual significance. Yet most of the celebrations over Christmas come from ‘pagan’ solstice

Movers & Shakers

I was channel hopping the other night, and I caught a scene from Ugly Betty. It was about Betty’s braces, but it applies to just about anything in life that challenges us. Betty was talking about finally removing her braces and how it will affect her life: ‘What if nothing changes? Then I’ll have nothing to blame’. Her sister replied: ‘You are who you are, the sooner you accept that, the happier you will be’. Simple as that. Its’ strange how just a few words from a seemingly innocuous TV programme could have such a big impact. We all have

Stargazing

If we have a clear sky tonight, check out the Geminid Meteor Shower. The plethora of shooting stars will bring magic to us all! The meteors will peak over the UK at about 11am Tuesday, but in dark skies, meteors may be seen tonight or tomorrow night… Happy Stargazing!

The Golden Snitch – Mercury Retrograde

Little Mercury moves retrograde today, so we once again end the year with this little planet spinning backwards creating all sorts of thoughts and ideas within each of us. Like the Golden Snitch in Harry Potter’s Quidditch (thanks Jacqueline!), Mercury is a speedy little fellow, and so his influence can sometimes be so fleeting, that we miss him and fail to realise his importance. Mercury gives each of us an opportunity to focus on our thoughts, and in particular to explore how we think. It is all too natural for most of us to think in terms of negatives –

The Truth Will Out

Today (the 6th December) magnificent Uranus moves direct. Uranus has been in a cosmic clinch with Jupiter for much of the summer and autumn, and Uranus moving direct is the next big step on the cosmic calendar. Uranus is the freedom seeking rebel fighting for individuality and Truth. He is the lightning strike that breaks down barriers, and the innovator bringing new ideas and thought forms into use. He is the ruler of intuition, and helps us to become more interconnected with the Universal energies. Uranus reflects not only our innate human longing to know where we are going and

I Am Infinite Potential

Mighty Jupiter moves direct today, the 18th November, joining Venus who also moves direct on this date. Jupiter’s role in retrograde over recent months has taken our attention within and turned our focus to the abundance that resides there. We have each had the opportunity to explore our full potential and to realise just how much we do have in life. We have been asked to give gratitude and thanks for what we have, and made to realise that true abundance lies within. When we live an enriched and full life, we feel complete. Money helps obviously, but it is

The Joy of Love

Venus moves direct on the 18th November. In retrograde, Venus (the Light of Beauty) moved her focus to within, and her qualities became internalised. So, the past few weeks have been a time to go within to honour and love our own beauty. In many ways, Venus moving direct correlates with a need for each of us to honour ourselves more and to achieve a sense of balance in all areas of our lives. Venus Direct asks each of us to believe in ourselves, to stand up for ourselves and to love ourselves unconditionally. It is only once we truly

A Long Dark Night of the Soul

The past few months have been a somewhat bumpy and tumultuous ride into a long dark night of the soul. Uncertainty and discombobulation has reigned, and many of us have felt lost in the dark without a compass, map or GPS to guide us. Yet, over the coming weeks, like a brilliant angel coming down to bless us, a new light is beginning to shine on each of us, lighting up our paths ahead with clarity and vision. Whilst this new wave of beautiful light comes through, it is important to honour the challenges each of us has faced recently

The Pool of Tranquillity

Today (7th November) Neptune moves direct, and the stillness and quiet that Neptune has been asking each of us to search for within shifts focus as we start to seek this stillness in all aspects of our lives. Whilst the past few months have been challenging for so many of us, if we can allow ourselves to Be ‘at One’ with this Neptunian serenity, then all aspects of our lives move into sharper focus, and we are far less affected by the stormy seas around us. In this space, we can find great strength, resolve and determination; and somehow life
