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!
A couple of posts ago I was raving on about how great I felt after evicting what seemed like another nasty bug, it seemed so unfair when I had only recently spent a week in bed, so unusual for me. At the same time that I was feeling that energy surge through my body I was also aware that I was riding a fine line, that kind of enthusiasm can spend your vigour and take you back to a place of ill-health. It’s something we’ve all done at one time or another, when you have been feeling low the return to full life can almost be a bit overwhelming.
So I was determined not to allow that to happen, with two overnight shifts in a row and a busy weekend to follow I needed to make sure that I took proper care of myself. So I made sure to lie down and at least have a doze before going to flamenco class, it was particularly vigorous but I enjoy it so much it ends up giving me as much energy as it takes. If you are going to fill your life with a lot of activities then it is essential for most if not all of it to fill you with joy, that kind of passion will take you a long way although it doesn’t change the message that spirit is sending me to slow down.
Alas the bug was not completely cleared, so I’ve been trying to do what needs to be done at the same time as taking care of myself . That means green smoothies and meditation, after a long session on the laptop I went and lay on the earth for a while feeling the loving support of Mother Earth. Connecting your bare skin with the earth on a regular basis is sooooo important, you can feel any stress draining out, it’s a bit like the earthing wire in electrical systems.
So here I sit still feeling the sickness in my body, looking forward to a medicine circle where I will hopefully be able to journey to a place of full health. Shedding whatever needs to go, embracing the wonderful new beginning that has opened up for me as I move through this transition, into my wondrous new life!
So be it, so be it, so be it…………

The founts of inspiration are flowing once again, the trick is to catch it as it bubbles out, I have been so buggered by my big week I sometimes fail to grasp the ideas as they come. Guess I will simply have to trust that they are still present in my energy field and will offer their gifts in the perfection of divine timing!
The thought that has remained is the notion of transition, I am shifting my reality from having a place to myself to sharing with mum. I’m also integrating my huge shift into becoming the larger me, the one who loves herself and who values the skills and talents that she can contribute to the community. Before too long we will be transitioning from summer into autumn, there are so many different cycles operating like circles within each other. As a woman I travel through my moon cycle every month, a process I treasure deeply, an opportunity to dive into the womb of creation.
The world is going through such changes, the skill of being able to transition with ease and grace is a very important one. We are in the Chinese New Year of the Water Snake and while there are no doubt many aspects to this sign, flexibility is one quality that comes to my mind. Water is also the element that corresponds to emotions, I interpret this as a time to shed the stored emotions that relate to the old patterns we are all letting go of.
Time to wash away the beliefs and values that don’t work, and to usher in the Golden Age of love and co-operation. For me this means focusing on what I love to do, and having the confidence to put myself out there and being prepared to be successful! That may sound a little strange but when you don’t value yourself success is something you tend to avoid, you just don’t think that you’re worth it.
I offer my gifts to the world, as a writer, healer, counsellor, performer, plus all the stuff that is still to come, because there is always more, more joy, more laughter and more love! We live in an infinite universe nestled within the quantum field seething with potential, brimming over with possiblity………one, two, three GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Feeling exceedingly odd today, I couldn’t get out of bed yet again, felt like I wanted to spend the whole day there but I know if I did I wouldn’t feel good about myself. I began by doing my first oil pulling, this is when you swirl coconut oil around in your mouth for 20 minutes, it feels weird and I kept having to remind myself to keep swishing. When you spit the oil out it is all milky and contains toxins which the oil has helped to remove from your body.
Since then I’ve had a green smoothie and a few macadamia nuts and done some reading and a bit of hand washing and through all of this my head has felt very strange. A bit like when you have a flu or virus, it is a sensation I associate with cellular shifts going on in my body. So I guess that is most likely what is going on, I started my moon bleed on saturday and had the sense that I might be doing a particularly big shedding.
As a matter of fact the other times my head has felt like this I have been going through major detox so there is my answer to the way I’m feeling. The feeling in my head only happened after the oil pulling so it would seem that it helped to speed up the release of toxins. Probably a good idea to consider giving up coffee for a few days but I probably won’t, I don’t get withdrawals when I don’t drink coffee, but when I want it I want it and that’s that!
So much for Miss I want to achieve optimum health, well it will simply have to be in stages, and maybe I will always have coffee in my life. As I go along I add in good habits, and remove the bad, it is a slower way of creating change but the new habits are more likely to stick.

Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic remedy that
works as a magnificent de-toxifier for the mouth
and the whole body, often solving chronic dental
issues without the need to go to the dentist.

A major feature of my experience of these times we are living in is that anything you haven’t yet dealt with is going to be in your face. If you notice yourself having a big reaction to something that is not really in proportion to what has actually occurred then there is a fair chance that you are facing an opportunity to clear something big. This is when crisis can be a doorway to shedding the past and entering into new ways of being. A beautiful illustration of this can be seen in the chinese character for crisis, which is made up of two symbols, one means danger and the other means opportunity.
I am staring my attitude of lack and scarcity right in the face at the moment and I don’t like what I see or feel at all. This festive season has been good for me but there have also been some drawbacks and it is mostly to do with me not taking proper time off because I need to keep working, not because I am a workaholic but because there isn’t enough in the bank account.
According to the Laws of Manifestation I am not even supposed to be speaking of what I don’t have, I’ve always found that one a bit tricky and maybe that is why I haven’t made the big shift yet. For the truth is that I have made huge progress, the money that I do earn all comes through doing work that I enjoy, that gives meaning and purpose to my life.
So I sit with my feelings, and while the mind can help with intellectual understandings, it is the intuition coming from the heart that is truly my guiding light in the darkness of old fears and monsters under the bed. The heart has its own wisdom and there is a physiological basis for this, half the cells in our heart are identical to brain cells. Apparently they have discovered brain cells in the gut too, makes a lot of sense when you thing about ‘gut feelings’.
Just writing all of this helps me to shift my feelings somewhat, journalling is a wonderful self-development tool and one that I have used a lot over the years. It is a bit different doing it so publicly, I have a lot of shame over being in lack and to put it out where anyone can see feels very challenging. So be compassionate in your thoughts as you read this and I will try to do the same for myself.
With kindness and compassion and a huge dollop of gratitude for the abundance and beauty of life!
