What Am I Afraid Of? Losing Control.

I have spoken for years about looking at fears and have helped others to identify them and utilise their energy to grow. I have just as many fears as the next person and when I look at my life, I can see that I never ‘get rid’ of fears. I deal with a fear on one level and when I have cleared that issue, I see that the original fear or energy of that fear, transposes itself into another area … Continue reading

Meeting Your Fears Face to Face

I’d like to invite you to watch this video in its entirety. I love Gangaji’s presence. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JsaTXtfrbnI I watched this video a few days ago and was hugely inspired by Gangaji’s words. She spoke of things that deeply resonated with me. The recognition that I’m running from something I can’t escape from because it is an aspect of myself. And always holding the intention to tell the truth. Giving up the illusion is so freeing. Are you willing to look … Continue reading

Go There with Your Mind and the Body Follows

Those of you who do yoga will know that we each find some exercises easier to do than others. This evening we were doing both spinal rolls as well as the opposite, rocking on our tummies, with our knees bent and holding onto our ankles with heads held high. Everyone started out with full energy but began to flag as the minutes tick by. It was at that point that our kundalini yoga instructor, Mark Keane, whom you met in … Continue reading

Making Your Own Ghee in Ayurvedic Tradition

If you’ve never made ghee before, you’re in for a treat. Watch this video for an introduction. Ghee, or clarified butter, is an integral part of the dietary aspect of the Ayurvedic tradition. It is recognised that oils are a great necessity for optimum digestion and ghee is the recommended form that we should eat for perfect absorption and improved well-being. Although ghee is available in health food stores, I would suggest that you cook your own, as you will … Continue reading

An Eye for an Eye and a Tooth for a Tooth in a Perfectly Balanced Universe

Recent political events have reminded me of our great need to see justice done on any account. And it has also brought to my awareness how our actions of lashing out at others only perpetuate aggression and grief on this planet. Over the years I have noticed (and I’m only speaking from my perspective) that no matter what happens, the universe always finds a way to balance things out all by itself. Whether or not we get involved. Life is … Continue reading

Buying and Selling ‘Secrets’ to Make Millions – the Big Illusion

There’s never a day goes by without me finding a good handful of emails in my inbox from people claiming to be able to reveal secrets to me that will completely turn my life around and make me very rich. I can always tell them a mile away. I’ve got a sort of radar for them and they get deleted immediately and blasted off into the cyber wasteland. It never ceases to bring a smile to my face. In fact, … Continue reading

How to Stop Barking Dogs Interrupting Your Recording Session…

For several days now I have had an item on my ‘to do’ list and because it is quite an intricate one, I have been saving it for the right time. Or so I told myself. I’ve been watching myself closely and recognising my avoidance tactics. And I’m really on the job now. This means that I’m not making things easy for myself any more. Today I was fully committed to getting started on a voice-over I had lined up. … Continue reading

When is it Resistance and When Do You Just Know?

Last week we had a very interesting turn of events. Not long after we moved to Bristol from Ireland and rented our Victorian house, the landlord proudly announced to us that he was putting the house on the market. This was after one of the steps on the top flight of stairs had broken through, pipes from the bathroom had leaked for a week through the hall ceiling into our vestibule over Christmas and New Year, and one of the … Continue reading
