Saying Thank You to the People Who Trigger You

We’re all the same, aren’t we? We find it easy to be comfortable with and like those people who make life easy for us and agree with what we’re doing in life. On the other hand we tend to go quickly into defence mode with those people who aren’t really saying what we want to hear. I just caught myself yesterday feeling a bit miffed at what someone had said to me and then caught myself. Remembering that my whole … Continue reading

Moving Forwards When the Green Light Goes On

Do you find that life has a way of switching green lights off and on as you progress on your path? And do you have a sense that you actually have no control whatsoever over this switching on and off process?  And how do you feel being totally out of control in the process? My most recent green light has been the opening up of my online silk painting courses which I truly did not see coming. But it’s often … Continue reading

Can You Hear the Universe Speaking to You?

There’s something very magical about realising that you can communicate with the whole universe on all levels. There’s something very lovely about putting all your stories to one side and opening your heart fully to hearing what the universe is trying to tell you. And there’s definitely something very touching about seeing and knowing that you are being directly spoken to in answer to your heart-felt questions. You are not alone. This whole universe is your own personal feedback system, … Continue reading

Are You Dancing at Two Weddings in Your Life?

After a day of making slow progress in piecing my new silk art classes together, I decided this evening to pull out my acrylics and paint for a short while to just let go and float. I also found some amazing music on YouTube to listen to, a SAT NAM mantra meditation which kept me in a wonderfully chilled out space. I also pulled out my beloved mandala deck and drew one for guidance. One Master. Such a beautiful message … Continue reading

Are You Married to Truth?

“Illusions are like mistresses. We can have many of them without tying ourselves down to responsibility. But truth insists on marriage. Once a person embraces truth, he is in its ruthless but gentle grasp”. – Rabazar Tarzs Do you resonate with this quote? I must admit, it’s one I have a great resonance with. I know from my experience, that once I put my foot on the path of committing to living the truth I awakened to, there was just … Continue reading

Thoughts on Nisargadatta Maharaj and the person.

“The person is a very small thing. Actually it is a composite, it cannot be said to exist by itself. Unperceived, it is just not there. It is but the shadow of the mind, the sum total of memories.” – Nisargadatta Maharaj – I love this quote. And just wanted to share with you some simple thoughts that arise when contemplating this. I am amazed at how something that we imbue with so much importance is completely of a transient … Continue reading

Being the Love for Others

It is important in our lives to make space to allow the mind to calm and become still. When we can come to a point of stillness where everything settles, it is from within that space that the truth arises. The truth that we are already all of what we think we are seeking. Out of that beautifully golden stillness arises the knowing that we are that which we seek. Our movement in this world from that quiet space is … Continue reading

Taking Care of Whoever’s In Our Care

How many of us are able to fully take care of whoever is in our care, from the heart? How many of us are truly capable of putting everything personal to one side and really taking care of someone who reaches out to us? Despite how we may be feeling within ourselves. And despite what we may be thinking about the other person. I recently had the opportunity to observe a scenario playing out between two friends. One had drawn the other … 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

The Truth, the Raw Truth and Nothing but the Truth

A few years ago I went off on a weekend workshop where I was to be taken past my perceived physical limits in a gruelling bootcamp and embrace a new diet, the raw food lifestyle. I shared my journey on video and in blog posts and began to see how I had been creating one myth after another through my life. Releasing my attachment to cooked food blasted so many of my old belief systems sky high  and let me … Continue reading
