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

Don’t Feed What Isn’t True

I’m loving all the conversations I have been having recently with friends who are as dedicated to digging deeper as I am. It’s so refreshing and liberating to suddenly be able to see something with eyes of truth instead of it being hidden behind a veil of self-denial. So lovely to recognise what is true and to open my heart and lovingly and gently let it all in. And all the while those ‘lies’ and stories I uphold….no, they’re not … Continue reading

Gaining Deeper Insights – Loving the Truth

Being completely honest. I find it’s a truly sweet moment when I gain deeper insight into what I had been blind to before. Suddenly being able to see something I just couldn’t see and realising the implications of it. Realising that it was there right in front of my face but invisible to me because of the veil of denial I had pulled across it. Obscuring it conveniently from view. And such a bitter-sweet moment to realise that my projection … Continue reading

A Responsibility to be Pureness of Heart

Just take a moment to pause and realise that every single thought you have, every single thing you say, every single thing you do has an effect on the universe, on your world. No exception. What a responsibility. A responsibility to be that pureness of heart, that pure awareness that you know you are and sometimes forget you are. Now that I know what I am, I have the responsibility to be that regardless of how chaotic my life sometimes … Continue reading

A Touch of Frost on the Cosmic Web

A few weeks ago I was inspired to start up a new spiritually based group for artisans on the Etsy website. Together with Star Breiter, my Silk and Stars partner, we opened the group and started to put out the call for other like-minded people. – as you read through this post, click on the photos to be taken to the artists’ pages. The group has a team presence on Etsy but also a day-to-day support on Facebook and the … Continue reading

Total Surrender – Let in All Your Experiences

Don’t pretend that it’s okay to just focus on the ‘good things’ that are happening in your life. Surrendering is about letting it all in. Just exactly as it is. Without trying to change anything. So you have a ‘bad day’. Let it in. And then there’s a ‘good day’. No difference. Let it in. Keep letting it all in. Your life is just unfolding. So let it get on with things. You don’t need to try and change anything. … Continue reading

A Day in the Life….Creating Small Framed Silk Pictures

Most of you know my freehand silk mandalas that I love creating. Whenever I’m asked about templates, I always tell you that I almost never use them and enjoy the process of freely creating as I go. But there are a few items that I use templates for and those are the smaller items that I reproduce as variations on a theme. I just wanted to share an insight into my small framed silk pictures, items that I do indeed … Continue reading

Don’t Trust Your 5 Senses – You Just Can’t Rely on Them

I was reminded yesterday once again of how little I can really rely on my 5 senses. A couple of weeks ago I met a friend for a cup of tea and we got chatting about all things spiritual – as one does. And the topic came round to how our physical senses can delude us and that we actually create false memories. And on the basis of those false memories we build up stories and an imaginery truth. The … Continue reading
