December 2018 Forecast

Message for December 2018 We’re all looking for something. Be it a better life, a better relationship, an enriching career, a spiritual purpose, happiness, less pain, fulfilment or contentment (to name but a few). We’re all looking for something, seeking out maybes, searching for hope. We reach deeply into our hearts and souls, looking for ‘the answer’; sometimes even looking for the question. We want to know why ‘a plus b equals c’, and we often try to seek out new ways of re-writing such equations when things don’t pan out quite as we would hope or expect. It can

November 2018 Forecast

Message for November 2018 When we are born, the stories of our lives are, on the whole, unwritten and undefined. Letters dance around, slowly forming words, and then sentences. As we grow and evolve, the sentences grow and merge, forming storylines and beliefs. As children, we have the freedom to tap into the magic and wonder of the imagination where we know no boundaries or limits, but over time, conditioning slowly erodes this for many, leaving us like sheep, a part of the flock of ‘normal’. As a child, a cardboard box was a castle; a blanket was a magic

October 2018 Forecast

Message for October 2018 There have been times of my life when I’ve felt as though I’ve been moving backwards when everyone – and everything – else has been moving forwards. Occasionally I’ve been lucky enough to stop to reassess myself and my life, but the world has continued to shift in ways that have felt counter-intuitive to me. As a result, I’ve often felt as though I’m slowly spinning as I try to keep my own pace but also try to follow the flock at the same time which is not only challenging, but confusing as well! I’m not

September 2018 Forecast

Message for September 2018 It’s hard to believe we are now almost three quarters of our way through 2018, I’m not sure if it’s just me, but Christmas only felt like last week! Although it’s been an intense year, I’m not convinced that it’s just down to the twists and turns, as it feels as though something much deeper is going on connected to a more nebulous – and hard to define – shift in perspective. Undoubtedly many of us have grown world-weary over the last year as we’ve seen so much negativity all around, and it’s started to creep

August 2018 Forecast

Message for August 2018 As the pace of change continues to ebb and flow, and twist and turn, there is a sense that we are finding it harder to know where one chapter of change ends and when the next one begins. It’s as though we are in a big blur of shift, and it’s indefinable and without shape or definition. Of course, as human beings, we have an inherent need to define, but we can’t always get what we want. We already know that life, by its very nature, is unknowable, but it doesn’t stop up from seeking out

July 2018 Forecast

Message for July 2018 In many ways, life is a collection of random, incongruent and incomprehensible moments; a jigsaw puzzle of ever-changing images and designs. If we step back to look at the bigger picture of our lives, we may be lucky enough to see some common threads weaving their way through the space and time that makes us individuals, but these often get lost in the mêlée and chaos of the ebbing and flowing tides. It is therefore no surprise that so many of us feel discombobulated and disconnected at such a deep level, as the world seems to

June 2018 Forecast

Message for June 2018 Life is rarely as straightforward, or as black and white, as we might like it to be. Although most of us accept the unknowable nature of life, considerably less of us embrace this fact joyfully! Of course, it’s reality, so resisting it doesn’t change anything, but we are human and rarely take the logical approach! Indeed, even when we feel we have reached an enlightened state of awareness, those human quirks and nuances make sure we’re reminded of our human-ness on a regular basis. There is nothing wrong with this of course, but it can be

May 2018 Forecast

Message for May 2018 Quiet. It’s a concept that’s so frequently overlooked these days as we live in a 24/7 world of inter-connectivity and noise. Our phones are never more than a few feet away from us, bleeping and notifying us of things we often don’t even know we need notifying about. When we receive an email, there’s an implied pressure to respond immediately, a text message even more so – some phones even show when a message has been read making the pressure more intense as no one wants to feel like they’re being ignored. Top that with the

April 2018 Forecast

Message for April 2018 What constitutes a fulfilling life? Is it a desire to live blissfully? It is the quest for perfection? Does fulfilment come from eradicating the ‘bad stuff’? Does it come from opening up to the good? What brings out your happy? Many of us have a goal to be fulfilled, some amongst us may already feel they’ve achieved this, but there are many more still looking and searching. When we think about our ‘perfect’ life it’s easy to think about all of the things we still want to achieve and discover, and to focus on joining together

March 2018 Forecast

Message for March 2018 Life can be unquestionably hard at times as we try to navigate the twists, turns, dead-ends, nooks, crannies, hills and valleys. We never know what’s around the next corner and although we may try to be as prepared as possible we can never truly know what’s coming as life is unexpected and unpredictable. This isn’t to say that we can’t shape, define and flavour our lives by the choices and decisions we make – this is simply an observation that we don’t write the rule book and we don’t usually have an instruction manual either. As
