Contemplation 2021

Each year I choose a word that will be my “watchword” for the year. It serves as a guide, an energy I want to bring in and embed into my life. I described to a friend as the word that goes through everything I do l, like the word embedded in a stick of rockContinue reading “Contemplation 2021”

Only love

No poem or funny story for you. Just some thoughts and a plan… It’s been a difficult week Less By Thursday the combination of the confirmation of that individual as leader of the Conservative Party, which supposedly makes him my PM, the way above average or even peak temperature that day and M.E symptoms wereContinue reading “Only love”

The First Solar Return of RSL

Well here we are and it’s exactly a year since the shop opened its doors.   To mark the occasion we had a small sale last week with some bubbles and delicious home-made cake made our resident Angel and healer, Loretta McCabe. Looking back over the last year I have learnt so much about making aContinue reading “The First Solar Return of RSL”

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”

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”

Work work…work

Wowee my natal Moon in most heavily aspected today! At the time of writing this the transit Moon is taking office in the sensible, serious sign of Capricorn trining my Moon offering messages of practical, structured support. (More on that in a bit) Whereas cosying up to my Moon in a chorus of service, areContinue reading “Work work…work”

Planning with Pentacles

It’s been a juggling day today. This is good. Reminds me of the Two of Pentacles in Tarot. In the Rider Waite deck he is a happy soul juggling two golden coins. Positively expressed it could be about multi-tasking, bringing things together and starting to create something new. For me its been about starting theContinue reading “Planning with Pentacles”

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”

Sustained

Not all messages are words. Nor are they pictures. Sometimes they are people. I had a session today with my coach where we got into an exploration of “self-chat” that, if we all confessed to each other, we all have. That second guessing, constantly evaluating and comparing, inner critic.  Running a shop, through inner guidanceContinue reading “Sustained”
