Taking flight

I promised myself that I would work on my book a little each day. It didn’t matter how much, just something new. As is my zone of comfort I then developed a new daily ritual and included working with the planets and their aspects, and their corresponding Sabian symbols*. So far so good as IContinue reading “Taking flight”

Ask Sally: Surviving Christmas

This used to be a tough time for me too, especially with the emphasis on food and well meaning friends and family buying chocolatey treats. It’s been a long road and knowing I was not alone was key to finding my way again.  Our wonderful advice columnist Sally, in her second piece for us, offersContinue reading “Ask Sally: Surviving Christmas”

Forgetful

A return to our previous format with another lesson learned (or rather underway) from Kirstie… I have just completed our first Introduction to Mindfulness course with Saffron. What a gift it has been especially through what has been experienced as stormy times. During the course Saffron shared with us the fundamental principles of Mindfulness beforeContinue reading “Forgetful”

Wave Goodbye, Say Hello

After an incredible and lively party on Halloween, enjoyed by both people and energetic beings alike, we have focused on the themes of regeneration and renewal.  Samhain, the pagan ritual from which we take most of our Halloween hullabaloo, denoted Summer’s End and a time to honour the ancestors, reflect upon life and death andContinue reading “Wave Goodbye, Say Hello”

Occupied

That work work work was in full swing today: Pricing, sorting, sharing, enthusing, connecting, exchanging and practising. Not just me either, this was the buzz in the shop as people came and fully engaged with what there was to offer. At one point I looked over and smiled to see 3 ladies sitting on variousContinue reading “Occupied”

Harmony starts here

20. New Moon in Libra tonight.  Our opportunity to set our intention to balance the scales.  Fairness, harmony, negotiating deals and contracts, pleasing aesthetics, all of these are what Libra desires. It is also halfway through the march of the Zodiac where we have learnt all about ourselves and are ready to turn the viewContinue reading “Harmony starts here”

Pregnant pause

26 Another unexpected moment… I didn’t expect that I would be sitting in a shop this time last year for sure. In a meditation room, certainly not.  Holding a space for Pregnancy Yoga? Couldn’t have begun to fathom that was possible. But that is what is happening right now.  If ever I wanted to receiveContinue reading “Pregnant pause”

Eclipsed

It’s time, little warrior, to put down your arms and allow yourself to fall into the embrace of the Mother, her care and love, always there never ending or beginning. It’s time, little warrior, to balance the scales and allow yourself to forgive all of your wars and broken toys,  now divested of purpose It’sContinue reading “Eclipsed”

Soul searching

Today I attended one of our workshops myself, Soul Collage. That’s one of the major perks of my work, you could call it enjoying the fruits of my labour! Prior to completing the Introductory course today I called it Vision boarding for the Soul. It is indeed but so much more. What a powerful process!Continue reading “Soul searching”

Beaming with Love

What a day.  Busy, active, reflective, discursive and…expansive. I had a new helper in the shop today.  A beautiful and unique quartz obelisk both snowy and clear. It’s been snoozing away in our Specialist crystals collection and today it wanted to be out and shining. And shining it did.  I meditated with this wonderful being,Continue reading “Beaming with Love”
