The Cloak of Silence

It has took me a long while to appreciate silence. Our minds become accustomed to a level of noise which we don’t realise becomes comforting, sending us signals that life is how we would consider normal. I used to love the distinct whirring and wheezing of the Jubilee line, the trilling of the beeps atContinue reading “The Cloak of Silence”

No more time to change

Tuesday in November It didn’t rain. The line between cold and hot, lonely and mocked, was paved over without a sound. It was a Tuesday. It was a clear sunny day, just over four degrees. When the ozone layer dislocated its joints and stretched into oblivion. It’s tireless work ignored, without tears, the ground belowContinue reading “No more time to change”

The perils of change

(I had to add this poem as a picture as WordPress helpfully kept removing my spaces!   Note- WordPress, you may need to consider this feature for the poetic among us) The Perils of Change This poem came to me in one of those midnight inspiration moments.  The last 6-9 months have been extremely wearing,Continue reading “The perils of change”

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”

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”

Shifting consciousness

29. Back in the shop today. The little sanctuary of calm in what feels like a confused and restless energy throughout London town. Most likely Mercury at its most influential in its retograde motion.  I don’t think I’m immune to his charms either as certainly any attempts at doing anything technological today has gone awry.Continue reading “Shifting consciousness”

Collective insights

Today’s resounding message from above was “Let it flow”.  Unsurprising for a space ruled by Neptune.  The planet where boundaries are dissolved and there is no form is great for the type of work we do, however, when it comes to structure, it can be a challenge. So be like water, let it flow. AContinue reading “Collective insights”

Here we go

Well it appears that Mercury is already wobbling its way to its retrograde phase as a few of us are already starting to feel the shift in energy. Time to hunker down, find that discipline and stay tuned to your intuition as given all the other astrological influences (last weekend’s solar eclipse, Pluto returning toContinue reading “Here we go”

These times 

Another week has passed for our little shop space and i’m still feeling the magic.  I am honoured to have been guided to bring this vision into being. And I know now that it’s not my vision or my idea rather I am custodian to an idea that was already floating in the ether.  NotContinue reading “These times “

An Announcement

I am feeling a pull to do something rather bold today. The Moon is in Loving-all-things-social Gemini and that influence is currently trining my natal Venus in Aquarius in the 11th House. Therefore in the spirit of all things community focused this seems the ideal time to announce… The Reason Season Lifetime Collective. Yes thatContinue reading “An Announcement”
