Room with a View – Heart Blossoming

This is truly a room with a view. Such an amazing explosion of blossoms in such a wonderful range of colours. Hues from soft pinks, peaches, warming yellows to soft sky blues and lilacs. A wonder of nature that always surprises and delights me. I love peeping out of the window to see this extravaganza. A gift that came with this house we moved into 7 months ago. And it’s such fun to look out through the top pane to … Continue reading

The Blossoming of Newness

Spring is blossoming and I’m enjoying noticing how things are gradually changing in my life. Newness is creeping in from all corners, subtly, but definitely there. The things that are opening up for me are changing. My thoughts are becoming different. And I’m ready to step into things I was closed to before, seeing that there never was an obstacle… The challenges are still there in abundance but I really have this sea of calm within that I can rest … Continue reading

Another Beautiful Sunset – Life’s Happening While I’m at my Computer

Oh my! Just about half an hour ago I happened to look up from my computer screen and saw a beautiful sky. I leapt to my feet and grabbed the camera. This is what I saw. Sunsets are so amazing. The colours, akin to silk painting and watercolour technique, look as if someone had picked some incredible shades from their palette and spread them with a large, soft brush across the sky. I slowly went back to what I had … Continue reading

Magic in the Setting Sun

There’s just something magical about the setting sun. I wrote recently in a post about that moment when the last firey rays light up the horizon. But when I stepped outside a couple of days ago to photograph the setting sun again, something quite extraordinary happened. I pointed the camera in the direction of the sun and just as I took the photo, there was a sudden flash as the light momentarily blinded me. I had a feeling that the … Continue reading

Watching the Day Coming to a Close

I was scurrying around, seeing to many small jobs and generally tidying up and creating space. We moved house not so long ago and we spend a portion of each day, seeing to things that really need seeing to. There’s still a lot to tend to. And I was just thinking about how much we had actually shifted. How much we had cleared out to make space for what was to stay. I was walking down the path to the … Continue reading

Getting Up Again After We Fall

I was thinking about how easy it is to fall. In a spiritual sense. Saying how things are and then tripping over the next hidden obstacle without any warning. I see so clearly how important it is to have my thoughts, words and actions in alignment with the Deepest within. And yet sometimes there’s a loud crash and I’ve fallen face first into the next quagmire. But I can see the full reflection the moment it happens. It’s that moment … Continue reading

The Sands of Time were Eroded by the River of Constant Change

I was 16 and was lying in bed  listening to Steve Wright’s Radio Forth late night show. He unexpectedly played a piece I hadn’t heard before by a group called Genesis. Within seconds I sat up and was attentive. This was so different from anything I had ever heard before. A piece called ‘Firth of Fifth’ ( a nice synchronicity with the Firth of Forth where I lived) from their album ‘Selling England by the Pound’. It went so deep. … Continue reading

Down, Down, Deeper and Down….Dropping into Honesty

No matter how great the pressure becomes, no matter how deep I appear to be falling. No matter how intensely the other seems to be triggering me, pressing all my buttons. No matter how unappreciative everyone seems. Remembering to be kind in the midst of it all. Remembering to have an open heart. Being that no matter what. It’s so easy to kid ourselves that we’ve made it. That we’ve arrived. We reach a sort of plateau where it suddenly … Continue reading

Time to Let Go Now

It’s been a while since I posted here and today I was sitting contemplating the card I drew from my mandala oracle deck when I had the thought of sharing it with you here. I kept things really simple and just pulled one card for clarity today. This is what I received: Let Go Now. Quite a clear message. It sounds so simple and yet seems so hard to follow on through with. Due to the identification we have with … Continue reading

Making Our Inner Knowing Come Alive

I love how life constantly demonstrates what is. Right there in front of us. No escaping it. But very often we’re not always ready to open our eyes and see it without any filters. And it’s the easiest thing to just try to turn a blind eye, choose the easy option and get on with something else. There have been big reminders in recent times to not just sit there and ‘know’ but to get up and bring it all … Continue reading
