Follow Your Passion

Follow Your Passion

Awake and follow your passion ~ 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’. 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. 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. Take note: 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 …

Change Your Thoughts Change Your Life

Change Your Thoughts Change Your Life

Do you get that sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach on a Sunday evening as another work week looms large? You know that sensation, similar to when you were a kid and the holidays were over and your heart was heavy, your stomach queasy at the thought of going back to school. Looking for a new direction? Fed up with the daily grind? Change Your Thoughts Change Your Life. Perhaps you are a slave to the system and in your tripe’s you just know there is another more exciting, perhaps bigly better, way! Well I’m here to tell you there is – and I speak from experience. Self-employed since 1989 I have reinvented myself many times. I am  queen bee at multi-tasking to bring home the bacon. I was pretty successful in my varying roles as Illustrator/Artist/Tutor/Greeting Card Designer and Vintage/Antique Dealer. A demon diva at transferring transferable skills, I now include Writer in my bag of bankable delights. And I have had a blast along the way! OK it’s true that I …

Law of Attraction in a Nutshell

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. Here I present the law of attraction in a nutshell. 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. 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; I have designed a range of contemporary, spiritually inspired cards. Each day …

Third Eye Activation

Third Eye Activation

These days you will find me regularly meditating with Third Eye Activation in mind. The Third Eye is medically attributed to be the Pineal Gland.  It sits kinda central in the brain and resembles a wee Pine Cone – hence its name. This small gland nestles between the two hemispheres of the brain and 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. 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 small gland to be the ‘principal seat of the soul’. …

Creating our Own Reality

Creating Our Own Reality

As pure vibrational energy each of us, throughout the minutes, hours and days are responsible for creating our own reality through our thoughts and deeds.   If this statement does not blow your mind and make your innards quiver with excitement, at the potential woven into these words, I fear you may not be ready for this truth. Now, I am no scientist. In fact in Chemistry lessons, back in the dusty recess of my ignoble laboratory school days, results and comprehension were thin on the lab bench as experiments bubbled over, exploded and left me bewildered and embarrassed. Yet Quantum Physicists substantiate my opening gambit and, without trying to comprehend the science behind their claim,s I choose to believe them. My Spirit guides reiterate this truth to me. There was a time, before I was buffeted and became cynical with life, that things went my way. I can pretty much identify the time when things changed for the worse for me. Although the great unravel took time. As a child I was secure, happy, …

non judgement

Non Judgement

In our physical world it is all too easy to define ourselves by the nature of our physical surroundings. Western corporate society feeds into our neurosis to be perceived as successful by selling us falsehoods such as eternal youth and superficial associated high status through materialism. Those who have no interest in pseudo enslaved success are judged lacking – I am judged lacking. In the last month I have been called both an ‘Abject Failure’ and ‘Tramp’ by folks I had hoped would know better. Non judgement is surely a better way to go? Sadly each of us is only able to operate from our present level of awareness so, whilst their words grate, I endeavour to shrug them off and pardon them. Ever since I can remember I have been a true free spirit. I have never taken kindly to being told what to do. As a very little girl my Mum despaired as I would come down dressed in mismatched clothes of my own choosing having been told expressly what I was to …

spiritual awakening

Spiritual Awakening

This Spiritual Awakening trip is weird and fascinating. I realise that I came late to the table. And, upon reflection comprehend that late equals 25 years whence I was too busy being busy trying to put bread on the table and create a feast which ultimately lead to famine. My comfy life had to seriously unravel for me to grasp that, through metaphorical starvation, I could awaken to smell the bake. Today this causes me problems as I am impatient to get on with what needs to be got on with. I am desirous of fast tracking my way too long dormant, supressed psychic gifts so as I can truly be who I realise I was always meant to be. This eagerness to progress at speed is, I know, pure folly. Dipping in and out of the realm of spirit is not an undertaking to be taken lightly. It is a serious business which has the potential to be damaging to any meddlesome person without strong conviction and character. There are always unscrupulous dark entities …

spiritual success

Spiritual Success

News: Rick and I have developed a range of spiritually inspired cards and a business called BrightSoul. We hope Brightsoul will  afford us freedom to live life on our own terms as we strive for spiritual success and financial freedom. For some time we have been struggling to find a way to make a living which is congruent with our desired alternative lifestyle. I was slow to react to the 2008 financial crash. I clung to my sinking ship, a once lucrative vintage business, for way too long. Then I developed several businesses which floundered and failed. Tenacious, I never gave up on the dream to create a source of income which afforded us true freedom. My failures were fertile plains for learning vital lessons: Any business is only as good as the owner – It is imperative to develop as a person to be able to shine in life. Self-limiting inherited beliefs must be identified and kicked to the curb. A person must embrace the practice of self-awareness and use their capacity for thought …

ways to live creatively

10 Ways to Live Creatively

As an Artist and Writer I live and breathe my creativity daily and am always looking for ways to live creatively in the flow. Yet classic creative procrastination and feelings of frustration, exacerbated by daily trivia, often knock me sideways. Since experiencing my slow Spiritual awakening, which culminated with a mind blowing slap in the face with a wet Kipper epiphany in June 2016, I aspire to live mindfully. And strive to be present in each moment as I  sniff out the illusive state of Zen. My Gran died when I was only five but I have many memories of this extraordinary lady. One particular recollection has always confounded me. Granny used to actually love to do housework! Nothing gave her more pleasure than sweeping, dusting, mopping, tidying, polishing and shining. I recall she always used to wear her pretty floral cotton housecoat as she happily did her chores. Until recent months I never understood. A few months back I was chatting to my Spirit friend Kerrie who urges me to think less and just …

10 Spiritual Reads With The Potential To Change Your Life

10 Spiritual Reads With the Potential to Change Your Life

Here I share my top 10 Spiritual Reads With the Potential to Change Your life. I love a great yarn but my preference for reading has always been biased towards non fiction. Inspirational biographies, self- improvement/development and books on Art. These days I tend to listen to my picks via ‘Audible.’ This service/product is great and I recommend it to one and all. I have a direct debit set up for 1 credit a month which costs me £7.99 – little more than the price of several coffees. For this I get to expand my mind and relax at the same time. Win/Win – ka-ching. Below are my top ten game changing, life enhancing, mind expanding recommendations. Books for those of you looking for answers and guidance who are open to the possibility that all is maybe not as it seems in our world.
