A Red Thread Voices Announcement

Today is a special day. Well, it is for me anyway. And hopefully for you too. Because today I announced over on Red Thread Voices that my poetry collection From Revolutionary Lips will be available for purchase from the 7th of November – which just happens to be my birthday! Bold, brave and beautiful, these ...

Smir

The tiniest of raindrops speckle my skin and lace my hair. Cooling. Soothing. Calling me into stillness. Almost like being dressed in the chill embrace of a cloud stooped low enough to kiss the breakwater. Out here, today, even the seabirds don’t speak. They hold their peace. A trio of terns skim the waves in ...

Where the Virtual Meets the Sacred

Posted by on Aug 28, 2014 in General News, Goddess Guidance | No Comments

Yesterday, I spent most of the day building virtual altars. You see, each Practical Magic Business Circle sister has her own space within the circle itself. A place to call her own, where she can seed her intentions, share her struggles and successes, ask for guidance, for support, and to deeply connect with her business. ...

Invitational Marketing or Why I Don’t Hard Sell

Posted by on Aug 25, 2014 in General News, Goddess Guidance, Self-Care | No Comments

It’s not in me to do a hard sell. I really don’t see the point in them. Our lives are full of things that contribute to feelings of tension and pressure. You don’t need me contributing to that. You really don’t. Pressing on pain points to manipulate you into clicking the Buy Now button? No, ...

Where Edgedancers Find Home

The tide was way out. Further than I’ve seen it in a long time. A whole other layer was revealed of the breakwater. A layer where the large stones were not ordered to create a smooth gradient. But were instead a messy disordered pile, which then gave way to tall spikes of sea kelp that ...

Behind The Curtain…

Come here, my lovely. Come a bit closer. Closer still. You see I want to share with you what’s going on behind the curtain. Do you want to see? Lean in and I’ll show you…. Remember that key scene in the Wizard of Oz? No, not the one where she steps into a technicolor world. ...

It’s A Circle. Not A Course.

I’ve been teaching at university for the last 9 years. I’ve taught courses that, over the years, have covered everything from Sophocles, Chaucer and Shakespeare to Tarantino, Stephen King and Stephanie Meyer. Yes, really. I’ve convened a cross-disciplinary course on Digital Media that was taught across 3 departments in small groups, computer labs and lectures. ...

Why Magpie?

  Head tilted to one side with eye focused sharp, the bird stops its ungainly hopping, and looks at me. Its long tail feathers bob up and down a couple of times, causing the light to play across the edges of its iridescent wings. And, for a second or two, we have a connection – ...

The Full Vision – Spoken & Written

Posted by on Aug 18, 2014 in General News, Goddess Guidance, Self-Discovery | No Comments

Over the last week, I have been sharing the vision that came through to my during a sacred cacao ceremony, as part of my Practical Magic Business Circle preparations. I was aware before of the 6 goddesses that were stepping forward to support and guide the next round, but in this vision, I was informed ...

Sacred Chocolate Vision For the PMBC – Part 8

Posted by on Aug 17, 2014 in General News, Goddess Guidance, Self-Discovery | No Comments

So, we’ve met the six goddesses that have all stepped forward to help hold and guide the next round of the Practical Magic Business Circle – Hecate, Sheila-Na-Gig, Shakti , Gaia, Amaterasu  and Sekhmet. A phenomenally powerful gathering, I cannot even tell you how in awe I am of the energies that are at play already. And the circle has not ...
