If you keep saying yes to things that sound exciting you will further your cause even if not a one comes to pass in the everyday tangible world. Of course some of them will but there can be times when simply considering an idea is enough to get energy moving, even if it ends up going in a different direction to where you started. My Beloved and I were considering the possibility of sharing a market stall at a festival and we had a meeting to talk about it that was fun and inspiring. In the end we aren’t going to do it but I have some positive energy moving from that experience that can now flow into other projects.
Just as well there are lots of positive bits popping up in the constant sea of change that still appears to be the energetic conditions of this particular time. The home environment that my Beloved and I are currently living in is not conducive to our being grounded and centred. Through nobody’s fault we are temporarily sharing space and for us it makes it much noisier than we are accustomed to. Even though I love music I often just have silence, especially when in a quiet place. And I haven’t watched television for 15 years!
But it is giving me good reminders about mindfulness and how spiritual practices can really support us when we are going through tough times. I spent some time this afternoon cleaning and I chose to think of it as a devotional practice. I saw myself radiating out love and harmony and peace as I worked, I could feel it flowing out of my hands. I thought of the gurus who say: Feed people. Serve people. Help people. Come back to basics and the things that are required to be happy and comfortable in our bodies, having a sense of purpose is just as important as getting food and rest.
It all matters and I am determined to keep riding the wave of change and adventure to the next exciting destination! Aho!
I just watched an inspirational video that I would like to share with you, it comes from Kiesha Crowther who calls herself “Little Grandmother”. Her name was vaguely familiar to me but I don’t really know who she is so I thought I would have a quick look to see what information I could find out about her. When I put her into Google I got a couple of you tube videos in German of all things, but for the most part it seems to be all about what a hoax she is. At that point I decided to let go of the research and just focus on her message, I’m writing this post because I found it really inspiring.
If you resonate with something that you hear, if it moves you and helps you to get excited and passionate then it doesn’t really matter who is delivering the message. Getting caught up in gossip and scandal is not the kind of vibration that is going to change the world in a positive way. Which doesn’t mean that I condone dishonest or unethical behaviour, if someone is doing wrong then by all means take them to account for it. Do it from your heart but take whatever action is appropriate to the situation.
So what is her message? She talks about what a miracle it is when a person remembers who they really are, the truth that we are all magnificent divine creators. She is speaking of what some describe as our higher self, it’s the bit that knows we are inextricably interconnected to everything, and that our actions ripple out into those networks and often create a much bigger effect than we could imagine. When you consider the immense complexities of modern life and the struggle to survive that is the reality for so many, it truly is a miracle that anyone does remember these truths.
A miracle and a blessing, this knowledge is growing and in my humble opinion it is unstoppable. Even those who are most implicated in creating misery and pain for others on this physical plane, are capable of this shift. As Keisha says, this beautiful planet that we have all incarnated upon is sacred, as are we. It’s time for all of us to remember who we are.
Here is an exquisite song from “Omkara” which is all about remembering our divine nature, let it take you on a beautiful journey, enjoy!
As I sit here writing this post the Bulldogs and the Eels are locked in furious combat on the playing field, the noise is quite loud so I am not quite sure how it is that I don’t find it particularly distracting. For those not in Oz I am referring to Rugby League Football, the players for the most part are huge and it can be a pretty brutal game. But it is also very skillful if you understand the rules of engagement and Australia has lots of great players, there was a time when I felt bereft at the end of a sporting season, it gave me hours of enjoyment earlier in my life.
So even though I don’t follow any of it anymore, it has an almost comforting feel for me, the sound of a game of football, strange but true. It can never replace being actively involved in your own life but I do think that there is a place for taking the time to appreciate the amazing gifts and talents that such athletes display. I’ve written before about the way in which Ayrton Senna the great Formula One driver was a role model for me and for my brother, being inspired by incredible people can be a wonderful motivating force in life.
But at the end of the day it is where that inspiration takes you that really matters, at some point we all need to make some kind of meaning out of our lives, even if that meaning is simply to have a good life. Being yourself was a big part of the positive message I used to get from following Senna, “Be yourself, everybody else is taken!” said Oscar Wilde.
I’m doing my best to take my own good advice, and if the sound track is sometimes the roar of the crowd and the sound of the ref’s whistle, then so be it. There’s four minutes to go and it’s become a bit of a slaughter but some nice play from the dominating team so goodnight from me!
So here I am whipping up a post again and it feels a little bit like dear diary, oh boy I could do such a great x rated tale of events. But this isn’t that kind of a blog, doesn’t mean however that I can’t use the same inspiration to write some erotic literature, perhaps I will look up Anais Nin. I am more familiar with quotes from her but it might be time to read what she wrote, it will probably be different from what I would write but it may take me places I wouldn’t have gone otherwise.
And there has been a lot of pain, very intense at times but this sharing of wisdom is very true for me. At the other end of sometimes agonising pain, I have come to the light at the end of the tunnel and find it good.
And with that wonderful statement I will leave you dear readers as I return to my oh so courageous man……………after all if I’m going to try writing some erotic prose I need to go and do some research.
Who are the pollinators in your life’s experience? Bees and butterflies ensure we have an abundant supply of wonderful and nutritious foods that support our physical bodies. But there is also such a thing as food for the soul and that is just as important, the more that we can be in the space of love and inspiration the easier it is to create harmony in the world at large.
The Beloved is all around us and the more that we can be in loving creative space the more flow is created, so who inspires you to be all of who you are? Which part of your environment opens you to your own divinity and the spark that lies within all people. Focus on that which brings you into alignment with your eternal soul, the bit that moves on in various forms and which sometimes inhabits the strange construction of an earthly body.
The Beloved is here,
in every breath that I take
the beat of my heart
the song of my blood
as it moves and flows
the organs, tissue, veins.
the Beloved is here,
in everyone I meet
gifts given freely with love
with a word or a glance
from strangers chance met
never to be seen again.
the Beloved is here,
in the food on my plate
as I bite into flesh
grown from the good earth
taking in all her love
through the cycle of life.
the Beloved is here
and I shall not yearn
for something already within,
the stars are inside
they shine with a light
that can never truly go out…….
the Beloved is here.

What does your Beloved look like? For some it is finding ways to help the bees as these people from Slovenia have done with a project to repopulate the bees which is crowd funded. Check it out here:
It doesn’t matter what your vision is, we all have our own unique part of the puzzle and the important thing is to trust that Existence knows what it’s doing, and to tune in to Universal Intelligence.
My Beloved is here in the form of my man and as long as that opens me to God/Goddess, I think I know what my favourite tuning strategy might be. But be assured that there are many roads to the place of oneness and the only limit on how many is how much imagination we can muster. Are you ready to be an unlimited being and to perceive the abundance in simply being alive and participating in this marvelous creation known as Existence.
When I am truly aligned with the flow of spirit it is hard to be anything other than optimistic, the dark shadows become less but sometimes those inky pools can feel endless and so intense. For a moment and then the letting go which allows more and more light to come in. That moment in time can seem an eternity but if we are consciously connected to our larger self then we know that the terror will be over in the blink of an eye.
Let the Joy begin!

My current view!
The powerful energies of transformation have been hard at work and I for one am feeling the benefits of staying focused on creating change in my life, at the same time that I am taking good care of myself. Having said that I do still have a cold in my system that has been hanging around for over three weeks now, and I have taken herbal tonics, lots of lime juice, and slowed down considerably. It might be tempting to ask myself what I’m doing wrong but that would be counter productive, as well as the care I have taken in the outer world I am doing lots of healing in my inner realms, in my temple.
The Inner Neural Workout!
I mean, what more can a girl do I ask myself, simple answer really, just keep doing what you are doing and don’t give up! I believe the cold is a sign that the detox on all levels of my being is continuing and that the work I’m doing is paying off, this is where being bloody minded can come in handy to marshal my persistence to new levels of determination. I am meditating every day and going into my temple to heal myself, there are a few things I am working on and some I will keep to myself for now, but rest assured I am including my immune system in this process.
Life is still very busy but I am coping with it now and can truly enjoy all the fun aspects, which is pretty much all of it, flamenco, choir, my work as a crisis counsellor and as a psychic, my writing for this blog. I’m back in the space of inspiration and joy with it all. So the theme of balance that came in with the New Moon in Libra feels complete now, and the focus is on Scorpio’s influence of deep transformation, letting go of the resistance that has played the saboteur in the past. Hence the body’s method of shedding through bodily fluids, even as I cough and blow my nose (only very occasionally), I am feeling uplifted and have a sense of deep peace in my body.
Doing a house sit in a place that doesn’t have the usual right angles everywhere and expansive views of the green rolling hills as I sit out on the balcony, is also a big contributing factor to this peaceful feeling. If you are ever in a place that isn’t the usual modern architecture, you know, high ceilings, rounded shapes and sloping angles, notice how this makes you feel in your body. I have a feeling of nourishment and joy that comes from this difference in the space that brings a softness to my heart that is quite delicious.
But wherever you may be, tune into the environment and find some kind of joy in it, even if that seems like a huge challenge, there is always a choice and why not make it a positive one! It’s a bit like the state of consciousness that the American Indians call ‘Beauty’s Way’, where even a rubbish dump seems vividly beautiful…………….the sacred is everywhere…………Ho!

I can feel myself coming more strongly into my power, the current shift is not always comfortable but already beginning to yield positive results. When you are juggling a lot of balls simultaneously even seemingly small things can have an incredibly profound effect, and I’ve just reduced my stressors in the most delightful fashion! There was a stall at my regular sunday market with lots of belly dance gear, brightly coloured rich fabrics and sequins gleaming in the sunshine, and lo and behold, there was a black skirt with a HUGE amount of fabric in it. Enough to be perfect for my flamenco costume, add in a couple of scarves and some head pieces and I pretty much have the outfit covered.
See what tresure I found!
May not sound like much to some of you but it’s a weight off my mind, when you are in or on the edge of overwhelm, little things can really make a big difference. So if you do have a lot going on, look for anywhere you can reduce the causes small or large, there are times when shifting your perception cannot change the fact that you are simply doing too much, and so shedding becomes a necessity.
After the last week and a half of being sick with a cold and then the gastro bug, I feel thoroughly cleaned out, and the cold is still hanging around so obviously I still have a bit to go with that particular process. The best response I can come up with is to keep going with what I am doing and see what guidance comes my way, whether it be through my own channeling or someone else offering inspiration. There is much more to tell about my growing empowerment and seeming hiccoughs on the way but that will have to wait for another post, as I once famously wrote in a performance piece some years ago in Sydney, THERE’S ALWAYS MORE!
More LOVE, more AUTHENTICITY, more PLEASURE……………. More Life to be lived…………….Bring it on I say!
