Knowing When to Speak Up and When to Be Silent

No matter what we do in life it only ever comes down to knowing. What we know deep in our heart to do. And that may very often not be the easy option. I know that I have reached a place where I have completely surrendered to what Source is asking of me in terms of how I relate to others. And this means that when I quietly see something with clarity, it is for me to go into my  … Continue reading

Giving Up Perfectionism When Running an Online Shop

I’ve been running online shops for many years and it really has been a rollercoaster of an experience. When I first started out about 11 years ago, things were quite a bit different. To start with, many of these online platforms were much smaller and there weren’t quite so many people competing and jostling to step into the limelight. But I think one of the main differences is that they used to only consider real handmade products from artisans. Today … Continue reading

Listening to What Others Are Saying to You

It’s come to my notice lately how easy it is for all of us to simply not properly listen to what others are saying. We’re all in this big soup together. Each of us has different interests, qualities, skills, and a different body. And we’re driven forward by what we deeply believe in and somehow just seem to forget that not everyone is going to be as excited about scrapbooking as we are. We let our interests colour our movement, … Continue reading

Books and Art Tell You When They Want Out to Play

I’ve been learning so much as I bear witness to the writing of the book. The book that I knew I would be writing just after I published my mandala oracle deck 7 years ago. It was stamped clearly in the celestial order form and so it would only be a matter of time.   And so when the whisperings came to me a few weeks ago to just go ahead and get started, that was it. I’ve always known … Continue reading

It’s All About Vibration

In this world we co-inhabit it’s worthwhile remembering that anyone can share anything. Anything at all. And amidst all the chaos that ensues, it’s important for us all to keep reminding each other that it’s all only about resonance. What vibration are we living? What are we putting out there into this world? Are we all aware that every word we express goes into our world, touching and changing all others in it, near and far? Are we remembering that … Continue reading

Turning a Blind Eye to the Magnificence of Life

It’s been a long time since I last read fiction. I used to be a prolific reader and would devour anything I got my hands on. The subjects would range from really mundane topics to sublime texts that would blow my fuses. My mind loved the challenge of letting anything in that truly called me to rethink my world. Spiritual texts were a particular favourite. And all kinds of books that opened my mind to questioning anything that I had … Continue reading

Compassion for Us All Not Knowing That We Don’t Know.

I’m reminded of those posts online where people say – “You just can’t unsee this!” Often these are comical situations and we can just have a laugh. But I want to talk about those things that we literally can’t unsee once we have become exposed to them. And above all, I want to just share with you how my mind has been changed and I have softened a bit in whole way of seeing. I’m talking, of course, about our … Continue reading

Thinking You Know Better Than the Next

I love my daily rounds of Facebook and other social media sites. It always bring a smile to my face to see the dynamic interactions that take place in the threads. These sites are full of experts, advisers, consultants and better-knowers. So delightful in many ways. I mean, don’t you just love it when your online friends jump in and take care of things for you. You know, set things right. Thank goodness they’re there. The bottom line is that … Continue reading

Using Introversion to Deliberately Keep Myself Separate From Life

I think it would be fair to say that I’ve been pretty introverted all of my life. It was always quite an ordeal to be introduced to people I’d never met before, and I would employ all sorts of strategies to avoid that happening. Just recently I was chatting to friends about this topic, and in the midst of the conversation I could see quite clearly that an introvert was not something that I was. It was actually a persona … Continue reading

Well I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day

How many of you are like me and still have a loving place in your heart for the old Wizzard Christmas evergreen? It’s one of those songs that really brings back lovely childhood memories of how Christmas was in the past. Especially if you lived in the UK like I did. As a youngster I couldn’t help thinking – thank goodness it’s not Christmas every day. That would be exhausting. But today on December 20th, here I am sitting quietly … Continue reading
