April 2020 Forecast

Message for April 2020 It would be extremely challenging to write anything about the month ahead without acknowledging the current global pandemic. It would feel a little like I’m burying my head in the sand! It’s a time of great uncertainty for so many, a time of great loss and there’s a huge tsunami of fear and angst as the life we’re all used to living is upturned on its head – almost overnight. Everything we once took for granted now feels like a privilege, perhaps an important reminder for many of us as to just how lucky we truly

Cocooning

Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve often stopped briefly and contemplated the gravity of the global pandemic we’re all currently facing, I find myself feeling dazed and confused on a daily basis at the bewildering speed of how things have moved and at how much everyday life has changed. There is a great amount of fear and panic, which is creating ripples of angst and uncertainty. Observing the world around me, it seems clear that this is bringing out both the best, and the worst, in people from local volunteers helping the vulnerable on one hand, to panic buying

True Alchemy

Last year was undoubtedly the most challenging year of my life, so much so, it has taken me until now to process it and to find the courage to form the words to write about it. I had to face the depths of myself and, as if that wasn’t enough, I kept on going into uncharted territory. I’ve learned the pain of spiritual and energetic disconnection, as well as the cold light of day reality of my failing body. I’ve been avoiding looking in the mirror for years as the reality was simply too challenging which left me in a

March 2020 Forecast

Message for March 2020 Watching the stormy seas crash over the rocks and the sea wall (from the safety of the café!) is both invigorating and enlivening. As the waves grow larger and larger, their power and force become clear as they toss large pebbles and pieces of driftwood into the air without a care as though they are twigs. The booming crash is both exciting, but terrifying. The sea holds such power and majesty, as it shapes and defines the land, carving out new features as it goes. Whilst we, as humans, try to bend and shape the seas

February 2020 Forecast

Message for February 2020 February looks set to be a month of insight and inner knowing as the light of wisdom is turned within to reveal new truths and new depths. A great many of us are facing challenges at the current time leaving us feeling isolated and beleaguered, alone and disconnected. Yet, at the same time, there is a growing sense of unity and connection, a sense that we’re finding new strength and new hope as the flickering flames of our souls start to burn more brightly once again. Even when we feel so lacking in hope, our inner

January 2020 Forecast

Message for January 2020 Well, after the trials and tribulations of 2019, most of us are hoping for an opportunity for some good things to look forward to in 2020 as many of us have been put through the ringer physically, emotionally and spiritually. As the energetic volume has been turned up by the chaos we see around us (and within us), we have each experienced dark nights of the soul and been pushed towards facing the depths of ourselves. As a result, we have had to face those aspects deep within that we have long tried to avoid, be

December 2019 Forecast

Message for December 2019 As life continues to bounce and ricochet each of us around like a squash ball on double espressos, there is an understandable sense of soul-level weariness rising up from deep within. I’m not sure if it’s just me, but there seems to be a palpable and tangible rise in pain, not only within me, but more noticeably within the hearts and souls of just about everyone I come into contact with. It’s as though the filters that once closed the curtains to many of our troubles have fallen away and left us naked, exposed and vulnerable.

Why I Am The Way I Am

Someone recently asked me if I knew the reason why I have my health conditions. I’d just had some reflexology which was wonderful, and I really enjoyed it, so I was feeling extremely relaxed and centred. Considering I don’t usually let anyone go within a metre of my left foot, let alone touch it, it was a miracle I’d agreed to it, but I trusted the therapist and I was pleased I was able to completely relax and switch off for the hour or so. I sat quietly for a while pondering the question before I replied. It doesn’t usually

November 2019 Forecast

Message for November 2019 In a world of uncertainty and nebulousness, one thing is abundantly clear: we are all living in tumultuous and turbulent times. Energetically, physically, emotionally, spiritually, politically and morally, the ground is shifting from beneath our feet and it’s bewildering, confusing and exhausting, all at the same time. Just as we feel as though things are settling, something else rocks the boat and sends us into another spin, then another. We barely have time to catch our breath or steady ourselves before the next challenge begins. We have each been challenged this year on so many levels,

Learning to Dive – To Bleed Willingly

I’m not sure if it’s just me, but I’ve always felt an intense ‘pressure’ or expectation to be happy. During those times when I’ve been swamped with pain and unhappiness, I’ve struggled as it’s somehow felt wrong and socially unacceptable, so I’ve tried to fix myself and smile over the cracks. It took me many years before I started to look beyond these beliefs to consider the idea that unhappiness is actually okay. It seems there is a deep sense of fear or discomfort with the idea of being unhappy or sad so we resist it at all costs. However,
