An Ode To The Scabs

Can you see my scabby places? They’re not pretty. They’re not beautiful. And they’re not polished. Can you see my scabby places? These healing places where the raw edges of myself are knitted back together. Can you see my scabby places? They’re not pretty. They’re not beautiful. And they’re not polished. But these places are ...

A Wee Confession About My Word Of The Year

My Word of 2014 - IGNITE My word for this year is IGNITE. And if I’m being completely honest with you, it scares me to death. Even now as I’m looking at it, I’m half-wishing that I’d chosen something different. Only half-wishing, though, because I know it’s the right word. I know that because I can ...

Something I’ve Discovered About Connecting With A Goddess For the Year

Posted by on Dec 27, 2013 in Goddess Guidance, Self-Reflection | One Comment

I connect every day with a whole number of goddesses. I connect with a daily goddess that I share in my group. I connect with a goddess to write a goddess profile blog post (like this one, this one and this one). I connect with goddesses for individual personal readings. I connect with goddesses in ...

Make Art. Because We Need You To.

  Provoke me. Inspire me. Shake me. Comfort me. Seduce me. Touch me. Dance me. Play me. Confuse me. Move me. Show me… …the contents of your heart, the imaginings of your mind, the cravings of your spirit, the spaces of your soul. And do it by sharing your art. I am so done with ...

Another Return

This weekend, I am returning to this place which holds such deep significance for me. And so I am called to share this article taken from my free download Less Ordinary Living, which you receive upon signing up to my newsletter. Grandad wanted just to drive us back home again. He had driven me and ...

A Birthday Launch – Bloom By Moon

Today is my 35th birthday. Isn’t time such an incredibly weird thing. I’m sitting here with the realisation that I have been on this planet for 35 years already. 35 years! And yet, it doesn’t feel like 35 years… whatever 35 years might feel like. Anyway, normally on my birthday, I offer a Pay What ...

Where Even The Gulls Don’t Fly

Posted by on Sep 10, 2013 in Creative Writing, Photography, Self-Reflection | One Comment

  I wrote this piece a while back, but it seemed a perfect accompaniment to the selfie I made today… With one hand outstretched, palm opened, dim light gently resting against luminescent skin, I am floating in the darkness, in the mystery. Perhaps there’s been a decision to surrender. Or maybe it was just my ...

It’s OK Not To Want It All

  It’s ok not to want it all. There’s nothing wrong with you if you don’t. When we marched for the vote, when we burned our bras, when we smashed those glass ceilings that promised ascension for some…. but not, it seemed, for you, when we created a plethora of opportunity for ourselves and our ...

Owning Every Step – A Journey Into Sovereignty

She caught my eye as the bus idled at the stoplight. It wasn’t her slightly outlandish clothes – one becomes anaesthetised to quirk in Edinburgh during August – it was the way each step she took seemed a weary yet inevitable risk that the ground wouldn’t rise up to meet her where she stood. Her ...

What The Butterfly Knows

One of my favourite apps for my iPhone (besides from Pixlr Express!) is Sarah Bamford Seidelmann‘s What The Walrus Knows. It’s a really cool wee app which delivers animal wisdom to you through an oracle function, as well as providing a field guide. For example, if you keep finding crow feathers, or you’re being stalked ...
