Let's Talk Toxic Thinking ~

Let's Talk Toxic Thinking ~

What is a toxic thought, or thought pattern, or habit of behaviour? Anything that damps down your innate luminosity. Why is this important? It is important to distinguish what is toxic energy and what is not... not by how much we can tolerate (martyrdom) but by what feels good to us and therefore flushes out what doesn't.

Let's Talk Confusion and Trust ~

Let's Talk Confusion and Trust ~

Amidst all the chaos of these times, there is confusion. "Let's be clear about confusion," she says, grinning. Confusion is a state of mind, and sometimes feelings, that does not touch your essence. It has no effect whatsoever on your essential nature.

The Heart Healers

The Heart Healers

Once Upon a Time, in a dimension not so far from this one, there existed the Dreamtime of Wholeness. This Wholeness infiltrated and permeated everything it touched. In fact, that's what gave 'the nothing' the idea. It watched and it learned.

Full Moon, Manifestation ~ What We Leave Behind

Full Moon, Manifestation ~ What We Leave Behind

A breakthrough transition is one of emerging. It is a shedding of many things. A snake snags itself onto something or weaves itself through tight places in order for its old skin to pull away. A glacier calves off huge chunks of itself, giving them back to the sea. 

A breakthrough transit is one in which things are left behind.


New Moon, Re-Set, Go!

New Moon, Re-Set, Go!

Have things felt oddly odd and unsettled and... {insert weird disturbances here} since the Solstice?  That has been the shake-up-and-out and those were the paws before the turbo booster. Some paws had claws, some sported fins and flippers, some had mermaid tails or other strange appendages.  The question you want answering is... WTF????  And, with all of the change, why do some things still feel stuck?

The Secret Life of Angels: Chatting with my Guardian Angel ~

The Secret Life of Angels: Chatting with my Guardian Angel ~

The angels around me asked that I start to play with writing down our conversations... so here we go.

I just finished a series in my Kindle library and was scrolling through what to read next, waiting for guidance.  What usually happens is that one or two of the books sort of 'pop' with a special glow that grabs my attention.

Richard Bach's book, Life with My Guardian Angel, had been popping up the last two times I opened the library app, so this morning I clicked on it.  I do know my GA's voice and manner, so it wasn't that. As I cruised through Richard's adventure, I found that I did/do have a question. 

Edge-Running: The Way of Daring ~

Edge-Running: The Way of Daring ~

What is it to live life on a bit of an edge, with a bit of edginess, or to dance upon that "Razor's Edge" made famous by Somerset Maugham's book of that name? So what does edge-running really mean? It sounds as though one lives life a bit dangerously, and it can mean that, yes. The danger lies in risking how one is perceived by others, and sometimes oneself, by leaving a status quo life far behind. A life of "quiet desperation", to quote Thoreau, was never going to be mine. How about you?

Unexpected Transitions ~

Unexpected Transitions ~

What to expect from unexpected transitions? About what you'd expect. Yes, I'm joking you. Writing from a wayside café in the Highlands of Scotland, hearing the 'voices of home' in the background, I can only shake my head at the twists and turns that have brought me here.

Where is here? I truly couldn't say. Though yesterday was a bit of a clue.

Once Upon A Solstice ~

Once Upon A Solstice ~

The cool thing about this Solstice, in particular, and all of them together, is that an opening into a transmission of light of this magnitude is an itinerary busting event. What does the Monopoly game call it? A Get Out of Jail FREE card! A prize of wish-fulfilling jewel quality!


Coming Full Circle ~

Coming Full Circle ~

As the oceans evaporate, the skies deliver precipitation, and the rivers return that flow to the sea, all things come full circle. This applies to our patterns as well as to nature {of which we are a part}. We cycle through our incarnations, learning as we go, in order to come full circle.

Lately, it feels like coming full circle every hour or two, the end-over-end rotation culminating in either a face plant or some kind of reactive face-saving activity. Neither of these coping mechanisms will serve us. We are aware of that, as we find our moments of stillness and joy. Then we are flung into the spin cycle once again.

When Truth Sets Us Free ~

When Truth Sets Us Free ~

Jacques Cousteau is quoted as saying "When we return wild animals to nature, we merely return to them what was already theirs. For men cannot give wild animals freedom. They can merely take it away."

We Don't Know What We Don't Know ~

We Don't Know What We Don't Know ~

This concept is well known in all circles of 'inner work' but what about its impact in our lives when we or those around us do not practice uncovering our blind spots?

I am writing about this because I have heard myself say, over and over of late, "Are you deaf, dumb and blind, Tommy?!" ~ psychically, of course, because rude unless the person is a direct student of mine and mostly because the individuals in question would not hear it anyway.

The Impact Zone ~

The Impact Zone ~

The recent new moon produced a wave of transformation, whose immediate after-effects are an impact zone. More important than any alignment is the way in which we surf the impacts of what is changing in our lives. Surfing advice ‘101’.
