Composure

Yesterday I had that moment all aspiring writers have.  “Why I am doing this?  Am I even any good?  Am I just indulging myself? Should I even bother sharing my work?” I allowed myself some time to reflect on this, to ask the question without a furious search for the right answer.  Instead I rememberedContinue reading “Composure”

Visible and vocal

I drew the Queen of Swords this morning. I was feeling sad and, for some reason, full of shame. As I comtemplated the card I started to write this which encompassed the qualities of the Queen of Swords and has some autobiographical qualities… The Queen of Invisibility What life has she had that she fadedContinue reading “Visible and vocal”

The alchemy of success

There is some wisdom working its way through at the moment specifically through Tarot. Today I was drawn to a new deck Tarot of the Old Path, not only illustrated by a woman but conceived by Wiccan practitioners imbuing Pagan wisdom and symbols within its 78 cards. For my reading this morning working with theContinue reading “The alchemy of success”

This is YOUR life, live it well

Back in Primrose Hill.  My body is still fizzing from the acupuncture treatment. What a curious sensation it is.  Pain and pleasure mixed so well together that you cannot distinguish the two.  Like the sudden relief from the explosive release of a sneeze which itself often comes with a side of discomfort. That lovely sensationContinue reading “This is YOUR life, live it well”

Transformation

This month has been busy. Not that the month before was not, but this is a different kind of busy. An up in the air, juggling, planning, head-scratching busy.  Because RSL Collective is changing. After over a year in Queens Parade, Willesden Green I have been blessed to connect with a number of complementary therapistsContinue reading “Transformation”

Pop Up Love

Saturday 13 February saw another successful community event for the burgeoning RSL Collective. For this we ‘borrowed’ the unit next door so we could spread (the love) along the first three Units of the freshly painted Queens Parade in Willesden Green. As I truly know (and am making a business from it), Valentine’s Day bringsContinue reading “Pop Up Love”

New Year Resolutions…moon rituals

Another Collective member post from one of our founding members from somewhere much more warm and tropical. She is currently creating a rich and varied life by following her dream, part of which involves writing.  Today’s post offers her own innate wisdom on aligning to and following the patterns nature offers to us, in thisContinue reading “New Year Resolutions…moon rituals”

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”
