My Magic Hands

Yesterday I had hypnotherapy for the first time and it was marvellous. My heart spoke, my womb spoke, my throat spoke and my mind spoke. When all were invited to be incorporated, my feet were buzzing, energy moved up my legs, throughout my body and my hands tingled. Magic hands. These words came to me. […]

Remembering to be Me

Aloha! I’m coming to you today from sunny Lucerne! I’ve got my arse parked on my beach towel, the dampness of the grass seeping through, and I’m hash-tagging outdooroffice all over my brain. Whoa life is good! Firstly, I wanted to say welcome to y’all – the faithful and the new and those just passing […]

The Recovery (part 2)

After getting that off my chest (see last post), I realised that I didn’t feel better. I still felt crap. Now there is definitely a place in my life for feeling emotions besides happiness. I’m totally fine with sadness – enjoy it even – but feeling simply ‘crap’ and being annoyed with yourself is not […]

Life Without Drugs

‘The last time I thought about taking heroin was yesterday.’ Ha! At least I got your attention. Not my words, but Russell Brand’s from an article about his Life Without Drugs. Clean and sober for the past ten years, he continues, ‘I had received “an inconvenient truth” from a beautiful woman. It wasn’t about climate […]

the Simple Words of a Wise Woman

Two Sundays ago we went up a mountain called Melchsee Frutt for the second time this year. It was spectacularly sunny, jacket-off walking weather, and it even made me kind of want to learn to ski. I got so mountain high up there and the feeling permeated the following week. We wondered why we didn’t […]

…in with the new

Clearing space. Let time in. We have enough time. Breathing these words slowly has a hypnotic effect. Try it. Breathe them into your heart. Do you feel expansive? Or Are you thinking….? ‘What?! I don’t have time to read slowly!!’ It is that time of year again after all. So often we’re rushing to get […]

my mind my medicine

It’s funny how only in a crisis of health do we feel justified to focus on our body. Only then might we buy organic, eat whole foods, visit a naturopath and make smoothies with bee pollen, super greens, raw cacao and hemp powder. Only then might we feed our mind with meditation and gratitude to […]

Crazy little thing called Faith

       “Do you have a faith?” The pastoral care officer asked me as she stood beside the bed I had been assigned while I waited. It was bed 21 and I thought it was a good omen. I had enjoyed being 21 and it was an odd number, made up of three and seven […]

the winds of change

Children of Mother Earth, listen up!  I watched this video the other day and I felt so sad. It is okay to feel sad though, I let myself – I didn’t feel angry I just felt hopeless. I love animals. I love trees. I love flowers and green living things. I love water. I love […]

romancing the soul in saint tropez

There is more juice to be got out of my day in Saint Tropez. Feeling out of the flow is confusing. I can’t make decisions. I have so much to say but I don’t know where to start. Things feel difficult. I numb out. I waste time in front of the mirror. I try to […]
