Musical vibes filtering through festival haze as the whole shebang is winding down after a lovely gathering has woven its spell. The dancing is done, for now……remembering that moving the body will move energy so that all can flow with ease and grace. And I have a busy week in which I will need to be extremely proactive, how about bringing this lazy chilled way of being to that week of getting things done!
Maleny Music Weekend.
It’s been an adventurous last little bit of time with my Beloved and I, stuff coming up and old feelings kicking around. Luckily we navigate reasonably well by talking a lot, even about difficult feelings when we are ready to. Now he is off for a few days to care for aged parents and we need to get ourselves organised for a run through of our upcoming workshop. With lots of clear communication and the right attitude we can do it all without getting too stressed, I choose to see it as an adventure!
Create your own reality feels very pertinent to me at the moment, I can feel this holographic shape that I’m moving into which is where Cerridwen’s cauldron is making the future. It is the zero point field where all possibilities exist, the quantum soup which is the raw material of what we want to manifest. It is a fluid space where you need to be flexible and always remember the impermanence of all things.

If that sounds like hard work you couldn’t be more wrong, with a song on your lips and a skip in your step it’s time to go down the yellow brick road. Time for adventure and time to tell the stories that will create the new age of man if there is indeed to be one, as I do believe that there will be.

As Captain Picard always says, “Make it so!”
I really do appreciate my good health, especially after my immune system has spent pretty much a whole week at the gym! The pleasure in being embodied is even sharper and everything seems to flow, just as well considering the busy week that I will be navigating in the river of my life. The sense of being tuned in to the flow of spirit is also feeling clearer and there is a sense of joy in being alive that comes from being connected to all things.
You know those moments when something pops out of your mouth unexpectedly, it isn’t an expression that you’ve ever used before and you don’t really know where it came from. But for the person you are speaking to it really hits the spot, that happened for me with someone I was counselling and it really made my night! I’d like to share it with you if I may:
Be clear about what you want to manifest.
Then give it over to a higher power and that’s what gives it WINGS!
It’s the bit about the wings that is a new expression for me, but I think it will now be something I use a lot, for myself and for others. Those moments when we are relaxed and open to possibility are when we truly allow ourselves to become a part of life’s flow, it’s a kind of channeling and often happens when we are focused on something other than ourselves. Or if you are very tired, it’s never a bad thing for my client if I am exhausted when giving a reading, the veils become even thinner then, although I don’t particularly recommend it as a technique for developing your psychic abilities!
The bottom line here is, relaxation is the key to so many things, you can build up to a climax through tension and it can be pretty amazing, but if you find the ecstatic flow in the valley your climax will go for much longer. And while this can obviously apply to sex, it has much broader applications in an inspired and creative life!
Ahhhhhhh………..don’t you just love life!!!!!

I keep thinking about the house sit I did back in May/June, and how it felt to be living on land that I felt a deep connection with, it truly is the happiest that I’ve been in years. And it was also during a time when very difficult stuff was coming up for me, being in a place where I felt so held made a tough time easier to navigate. Reflecting back upon all the different places I’ve lived, I’m trying to recall if that feeling has been there at other times. I can only think of one other place that has felt like that to me, it was during a period when I was getting fit and exploring the spiritual and psychic realms thirteen years ago.
I was living in a tumbledown house on the river bank in an area that I had wanted to live in for a long time, before I actually moved there I would sometimes drive down to the river and sit there in my car, just feeling the energy of the place. I started off in a good place with my house mate, but it slowly deteriorated until things had become very challenging, and we ended up with another person in the house whose energy was very dark. It could have been a nightmare but I remember that time as incredibly productive, I was doing an hour of yoga a day, taking long walks, meditating and toning, exploring crystals and my psychic abilities.
Obviously I was doing a lot of positive activities which on their own could probably account for me being in a good space in spite of the growing tension at home. But when I consider the power and security that comes with a feeling of belonging to the land, I can see that this played a huge part in my journey. It meant I felt safe enough to venture out into unknown territory, the dark energy that kept trying to drain me was a challenge that I met joyfully and most successfully. The Aboriginal people have that deep connection to the land, these forest sculptures by William Ricketts capture a sense of this relationship.

I have the sense of belonging in my community with the people around me, and that has been incredibly sustaining as I’ve continued on my healing path. But it may well be time to start looking for that home where the land sings through my feet, it almost feels as though a particular place is calling out to me. Who knows how long it will take me to find it, but to manifest this into reality I need to let spirit know that I am ready.
Great Spirit, Gaia, Durga……………please support me as I search for the place where I can most clearly hear your voice, feel your presence, the place that I may call home. So be it, so be it, so be it.

My challenge in this moment is to be ok with the fact that my bank account suddenly, mysteriously, appears to be in the red, shouldn’t be possible with a debit card! I’m seeing a client this afternoon and was able to buy what I needed in town so everything is fine, tomorrow a big pay goes into the account so there is actually nothing to worry about. An earlier version of me would be freaking out at this point, but instead I am sitting here with a slight bit of uneasiness in the belly.
I feel a sense of trust that my finances will unfold in the best possible way and that everything that I need to do will happen in divine timing, which is always perfect even though we sometimes only see that in retrospect. This feeling of trust is quite amazing, the more I focus on it the more it grows and becomes a bubble of joy, and the uneasiness in my belly dissipates. I really, really know as a body knowing, that I am always taken care of on every level of my being, there is no fear coming up at all.
That dis-ease is more about not knowing how the situation came about, the information tends to be slow coming through on my online banking so it isn’t telling me what I need to know. But the more the feeling of joy blossoms the less I need to know, may not sound like much but for me it seems like a small miracle. The old patterning that says ‘there’s never enough’ is a distant echo as I move into my prosperous and abundant future!
To manifest what you desire you have to become it and this is what I feel I am doing, as I let go of the excess baggage that I’ve been hauling around for so long. What exciting surprises await me as I continue down the path of fullness and love? Whatever they may be it can only be good, I love life and life loves me!
You know how the times when we are the busiest, the most stressed, are often when our self-care tends to fall apart. I remember having that discussion with a flat mate who was a doctor many years ago, as we drank coke and devoured chocolate bars. In those days I would make guacamole and have it with corn chips when I didn’t feel like cooking, which was often.
I do try not to create impossible schedules for myself and to take time out, but sometimes life takes you by the scruff of the neck and throws you in at the deep end. It’s sink or swim and if you’ve taken the time to have swimming lessons, the chances of drowning are much reduced.
The trick is to create healthy habits, so that when you go onto automatic pilot you find yourself reaching for food that’s alive. My green smoothie is the highlight of my day every day, as I keep refining it the life in it just gets juicier. I’m adding chia seeds to it now which are a fabulous source of protein and omega 3’s, apparently the Aztec messengers used to run for miles using chia seeds to power them up.
Speaking of running, exercise is another important support for our faithful and wondrous bodies, I could probably do with some more cardio as a habit, but I have trouble going through a day without some stretching. I LOVE my two hour yoga class every week, it supports me physically, mentally and spiritually. In my recent time as a carer for five dogs there were days when I literally didn’t have time to stretch and the results were not pretty I can tell you.
There will continue to be challenges, I was foolish enough this evening to eat some ice cream with nuts in it and mistakenly bit into a nut with my dodgy front teeth, three of them on a bridge so if they fall out again I am missing three front teeth. This is very disconcerting I have to tell you, dentistry is not cheap in this country and to get implants is insanely expensive!
I am going to breathe into it and tone before I go to bed, hoping like hell that I wake up with my full and beautiful smile looking back at me in the mirror. I need a miracle here my friends, pray for me and I will call on all the Gods and Goddesses to help me manifest something amazing!

The title of this post is inspired by the wonderful words and chanting of Kevin James Carroll who created the most beautiful sacred space in the Blue Lotus Room at the Woodford Festival, I danced and I sang for two hours. He spoke and sang of imagining the perfect world we want to create, in the same venue some hours earlier a young man, Lucas Lindblom, in discussions about consciousness, also described the power of the imagination as a tool for manifesting change. Einstein himself said, “Your imagination is a preview of life’s coming attractions.”
When you are swimming in the ocean of love created by the amazing community at a place like the festival at Woodford, it seems easier to imagine a world where there is justice, respect and care for all forms of life. If we want to bring this energy into the rest of our lives and share it with the world, it requires conscious intention and right action, mindfulness and empathy for others. It isn’t always an easy path but if the alternative is the annihilation of humanity then I don’t see that we really have a choice.
When I thought about what to write in this blog, there was only ever one subject that I knew I could happily write about every day. My own healing journey has been an obsession for me now for the last 35 years and I have been through such changes in that time it feels like I am a completely different person to who I was back then. In a way that’s true, but it is also false, there is nothing that I am today that was not present back then. I have simply shed many of the layers of the “cloud of unknowing”, the beliefs and thoughts that have obscured my true nature.
Time to imagine a future that is created from a place of love, to create sacred space wherever we go, and to celebrate our existence with open hearts full of joyful bliss.
