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

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
