If I say “Fuck”, Are You Offended?

I have always enjoyed a ribaldrous expletive thoughtfully slipped into a sentence for maximum effect. I enjoy the complete inappropriateness of lewd language, used creatively, when least expected – it makes me smile. I know, I know a tad childish but, fuck it! To be clear I abhor abusive, anger strewn swearing, spat venomously in the face of recipient; whether deservedly or not. I feel that once a person stoops to foul language in an argument they risk losing the moral high-ground, after-all, it can be difficult to respect a screaming fish wife or roaring bull. I am also not so keen on continual swearing in conversation when other words would better serve but I have no issue with colourful language in films or drama especially when used in relevant context. Or an f bomb, or other colourful grenade, dropped nonchalantly for reinforcement. I am no shy, retiring delicate flower; I know much of life is gritty and choose to not be easily offended by a string of seemingly innocuous letters written or uttered. Still, …

Spiritual Codes and Ciphers

Today I have been tired as last night I received a surprising, revelatory and complex coded message. I spent half the night Googling and the other half as excited as a flea – eager to share what I had been shown with Rick. One day I may be at liberty to share but for now we are truly grateful for the love, support, guidance and protection of the Spiritual Realm. These wisps are real folks and ready to help us all. All you need do is ask with purity in your heart and good intentions. With Love xox

10 Ways To Find Your Life’s Purpose.

Since the tender age of 11 I have always felt that I was meant to do something of significance in this world. I wonder if this is something you can relate to – have you too always known, or had an inkling, that you were destined to make a valuable contribution somehow, someday? Are you aware of your true life’s purpose? I can always remember when, as a teen, a friend of mine boldly stated; “I am jealous of you Linda! You know what you want to do, are driven and have a passion; whereas I don’t”. I always believed my contribution would be through my visual art and, during the 1990’s, this seemed most likely until divorce, single parenthood and financial obligations cruelly stopped me in my tracks. For 20 years my flame was tamed. Working 60 hours a week, as an antique dealer, I was lost in a hyper materialistic abyss; mistaken in the common misassumption that I was what I earned and owned. It took nearly losing everything and, what I now …

How to Cope When You feel Overwhelmed

At times we can all feel over whelmed by the magnitude of the work task/mission before us; and this before we even consider the daily doings and jugglings that we are committed to perform as, darling, the show called ‘Life’ simply must go on. So many oranges in the air, so little time! This very Monday morn I awoke in a stodge, unsure of my next step, with a distinct physical unease in my skull. I have so much I wish to achieve and am acutely aware that time, even though a false concept, is indeed precious. So, in bed I lay fretting. I asked team spirit for guidance but received nothing. (Often I ask and receive not! This happens, I reckon, when I already have the answers within; Busy Wisps have not the inclination to interfere, indulge or mollycoddle).   And so I reached for my journal – a rather posh word for a ratty, dog-eared notebook which is an erratic patchwork affair filled with all sorts of delights ranging from everyday trivia and …

Is There a Link Between Creativity and Enlightenment?

Years back when I was a graphic designer working in Covent Garden, London, I noticed a direct correlation between creativity and homosexuality. At the time my life was buzzing and I was surrounded by designers, writers, musicians, dancers and alternative folk and, young and naïve, I was surprised by the proportion that were gay. Many years later I watched a scientific documentary which actually confirmed that the brain of homosexuals is wired with a strong nod to the creative. Following my recent Spiritual epiphany I now find myself looking around and I observe a possible similar correlation between creativity, spirituality, psychic ability and enlightenment. Creativity is integral to human spirituality. Primitive man painted on caves, made effigies, danced and sang summoning Gods and Spirits for love, fertility, health, protection and all manner of wondrous magic. The process of making shelters, tools, pots, baskets and other utilitarian objects was infused with the skill, knowledge and creative energy of the maker – the very act of making was spiritual allowing time for reflection and meditation. Later on, …

How to Stay Motivated when the World Doesn’t Seem to Care.

One of my greatest challenges at the moment is the realisation that, despite my best efforts, my message and talents are not truly connecting with folks. I have a solid belief that what I am doing is of value but struggle with the half-baked somewhat apathetic response my work receives. I simply am not connecting with my, and I hate this over used buzzword of our day, tribe. There is some consolation in the knowledge that this is not an uncommon path for many creative souls but this does little to solve the issue which is in itself twofold in nature. Firstly how is a person to stay motivated when their honest work is falling on deaf ears and eyes? And second how is a gal to connect with an engaged, appreciative and loyal audience? The other week a member of my spirit team, Jason, popped by to give me a pep talk. He encouraged me to think of my work as an enjoyable hobby and I was reminded that all is as it should …

Follow Your Passion

I believe that our beautiful world is in transition as folks start to question rampant consumerism, corruption, corporate greed and manipulation. Tiny homes, living off grid, freecycling, paying it forward and traveling roots free. The concept of mindful, clean and caring living is gaining attention these days as many wish to find their own unique path and turn their back on ‘the system’. On the back of this shift in mass consciousness there are many self-acclaimed experts and guru’s eager to share their knowledge with you for a get rich quick fee. I urge you to heed the words of my Spirit Team – “Beware the False Prophet”. Money is not inherently bad but its acquisition should be devoid of manipulation and exploitation. And so my guides encourage me to use my natural creative talents to help spread love and light. With this in mind I regularly write and create my art, and have created an affordable range of Spiritually Inspired Cards and Loose Incense. 18 months ago I would never have imagined saying (or …

Law of Attraction in a Nutshell

I have studied and grasped the rudiments of the Law of attraction. In its most simplistic terms like attracts like; so, want and lack attract more want and lack whereas happiness, laughter, joy and faith usher in juicy, joyous goodness. We all have the power to create our own reality. Absolutely everything is energy including our thoughts, emotions, mood and deeds, and it is through these that we manifest our lives. I understand this law intellectually and yet still find myself a master at self-sabotage. When life has dealt a person a string of less than auspicious cards it can be easy to dwell on loss and failure and, even though we may be striving for brighter bounty, this indulgent dwelling will destroy our most cheery and valiant efforts to shine and succeed as sure as eggs are bleedin’ eggs! Does this resonate with you I wonder? I have recently launched a new business, Brightsoul. I have designed a range of contemporary, spiritually inspired cards and each day you will find me reaching out to …

Please Support Me

I would be beyond grateful for your support… It has been a while since I have been successful financially and my confidence has taken a battering and is bruised – my bank balance is scanty. When people see my work online I have reason to believe that they automatically assume that, as a professional, I am solvent and have little need for encouragement or patronage. This is not true. Brightsoul – Spiritually Inspired cards. With busy lives it can easily slip minds to buy a card for Auntie Dot’s birthday or baby Alfie’s christening. The simple solution is to have a selection of cards in the draw for any/all occasions. Brightsoul cards are visually appealing and non-occasion specific. With metaphysical and esoteric imagery they are open for individual interpretation and perfect for giving. They are also great to frame and hang on your wall or display on your altar – (if that is your kinda thing)! Shop here. Brightsoul’s mission is to create beautiful cards with a subtle, yet inherent, bright message to help promote …

Third Eye Activation

So these days you will find me regularly meditating in an attempt to open my Third Eye. (No, I am not Cyclops sister!). The Third Eye is medically attributed to be the Pineal Gland which sits kinda central in the brain and resembles a wee Pine Cone – hence its name. This small gland, that nestles between the two hemispheres of the brain, produces Melatonin a Serotonin derived hormone which modulates sleep patterns. Biologically this gland is said to represent a kind of atrophied photoreceptor – that’s a simple eye to you and me; it is also, sometimes, called a Pigment Pit. In Theosophy, a collection of mystical and occultist philosophies, the third eye is related to the Pineal Gland and it is said that in ancient times humans had an actual third eye in the back of the head with a spiritual and physical function. As humans evolved this eye atrophied and sunk into what we now call the Pineal Gland. Interestingly Rene Descartes, French philosopher, mathematician, and scientist 1596 – 1650, believed this …
