How To Overcome The Anti Climax Of New Year

  New Year often kicks off with a blast of new energy, fireworks and a huge goodbye to the previous year. Many people are often relieved that the old year is over and that they can make a fresh start. Goal-setting starts, visions-boards made, high expectations for success in the coming year. We schedule, plan, day-dream, envision the coming days, and then we hit an inner road bump, an anti-climax.… View Post

On Being Raw, Authentic, Controversial And Challenging

After grappling with something this week I recognised that it is time to be proud of my uniqueness. I browse around countless other sites on-line, blogs, websites, You Tube channels, Facebook pages etc etc.. and I sit and wonder: ‘Why do they have so many followers? What do they do that I do not?’ And so it began, a thought process. Mike helped me understand some of it this morning. He said when… View Post

The Pendulum Swings : Accepting & Appreciating Your ‘Negative’ Traits

Are you bossy? Controlling? Manipulative? Arrogant? Patronising? Sarcastic? Naughty? Rebellious?..   When you beat yourself up for these qualities did you know that you may be imposing limits on who you are?   Have you considered that certain personality traits seen as flaws or weaknesses simply require your loving acceptance? Have you ever met a person who doesn’t give a damn what anybody else thinks of them? ‘Flaws’ and all?… View Post

Looking Deeper Than Outward Appearances

“…If you penetrate to the core of your existence you can see through the outer show of others. By presenting yourself as you really are, you can make them aware of the process you have been through, so they no longer have to hide themselves from you.”    Changing Line 6 – The IChing – Frits Blok   Last night I had some thoughts show up about trust and how… View Post

Welcome Fear

A teacher once said to me when I was having an anxiety attack, say to yourself: “Welcome Fear”. She also went on to say: “God loves your fear, your anxiety, all of who you are.  Nothing is not welcome with God.” Yesterday I posted a blog about my trip to the dentist’s chair and I awoke this morning with this feeling of terror arising.  Not so much to do with… View Post

Question Your Guru!

One of the things many people neglect to do on the spiritual path is to question spiritual teachers. It’s easy not to when they are marketing teachings in the way sales pitches have been sold onto people for years. They fire us up, raise the passion and the excitement in us, and most of these teachers; “FUEL our DESIRE!”   The emphasis is placed on attaining the ‘desire’ and much… View Post

Writer’s Stage Fright

I often wonder how does a writer write for a publisher? How do they go beyond the pressure of writing for an audience and write for themselves again? To have deadlines placed on them, I cannot see how this is an environment that allows creative juices to flow. As I feel like a fledgling writer, I sometimes place the perfectionist pressure on myself also. I Am A Writer In 2007… View Post

Inner Wealth

So this week has become a rather reflective time for me, as I recover from a viral infection, I have lots of time to ponder and speak with myself. As I lay on my bed today, I was looking at my picture of Lakshmi, the Goddess that represents for me, both inner and outer wealth.  I was looking at the images of the coins coming out from one of her… View Post

Sovereign Solitude – Alone – Lonely or Accessing Deeper Inner Rewards?

I spend most days alone.  With the exception of sharing a home with my friend Mike, at most 5 days of those I am walking in nature, being simply with myself, the birds, bees and Mother Earth. Many days it is a wonderous experience, exploring, enjoying nature, animals and all the creatures that walk or fly on my path.  Occastionally, I have a very strong inner response, that of aching loneliness.… View Post
