We are on the fourth week of Lock Down and I’ve been going through a range of different emotions this month – one being guilt. I’ve been feeling guilty that I have a garden while other people are living in high rise flats in cities. In normal circumstances I would feel happy that I have a garden, but when I see people stuck inside with children during this crisis, I must admit I have felt quite guilty. It’s not my place to feel guilty. It’s interesting because those in flats
Today is the shortest day and longest night. The Winter Solstice. The pinnacle of Yule Tide. Thank the Pagans for Christmas. It’s not all about babies in mangers. It’s much deeper than that. As you know, I am a lone witch. I don’t do full blown ceremonies with masses of people at Stonehenge. I like a more subtle, carefully planned little moments of magic in my own space. I’ve been asked what I actually do. I’m reluctant to share a step by step procedure of my evening, as it
Sometimes we think we may have strayed from our path, just because we aren’t achieving the things we think we should be. Social media is partly responsible for this, but we have always as a human race, often wanted what others have. The grass always being greener and all that jazz. Your pathway is individual although it may often look the same as another. Your path is unique. Just as your mannerisms and fingerprints are unique.
Your path in life will often cross another pers
Music moves you, it makes you weep. Some gives you goosebumps. Drums call people together, chimes give focus, and the sounds in nature restore and heal you. Sound therapy is a huge subject, and one I have always been interested in. It only seems right that sound is used in healing therapies, whether it is peaceful resonance music during a treatment, the use of singing bowls to mark the end of a healing session, or a full on gong bath on a retreat. Whatever rings your bell, (e
Where do you go when you need some time to just be? I’m so lucky to live in the countryside where I can take walks with my dog, and be mindful. I have a garden to sit in, and a yoga mat to become present on. Sometimes though I need a change of scene, and recently I had an unexpected extra day off. I just knew that a trip to Glastonbury was on the cards. Not just my usual trip to pick up some supplies from a few of my favourite shops, but a visit to The Chalice Well. I’ve live
You have a bad day at the office and you take all that ‘stuff’ home with you. It festers away spilling out of you in to your home life. This isn’t healthy, and it could mean you have to disconnect and cut some cords. What does this mean, cutting cords? I’m seeing this so much on social media at the moment, but there seems to be some confusion over what it actually means. We are all made from energy. We attract energy and we give off energy. Every person vibrates at a differen
Here is is again. The Solstice. It hardly seems any time at all since I was writing about this last year, and now it’s here again. Time seems to be marked with events that stick in your mind that aren’t just birthdays. For me, the shortest day and the longest, darkest night, is a real focal point of my year. This year the solstice occurs tomorrow, Wednesday December 21st at 10:44 GMT- so for all of you who want to greet the new sun as it rises on the shortest day, you don’t h
It’s funny when I look back on my life how many people have asked, ‘Are you a witch?’
Jokingly I would say yes! There must have been a reason why they asked though. I’m certainly not part of a coven, I don’t dress up in a cloak (although I’ve always rather liked the idea) and I don’t caste spells as such, although I do like a good manifesting session! According to Wikipedia witchcraft can be anything from sorcery and the paranormal, to shamanism, nature worship and healing.
Everyone needs some time out from their normal routine for a de-stress. A recharge of the batteries and time to recalibrate the system. We ensure that our cars get a regular yearly service, so why not our body? Probably because we don’t realise we need some down time until it’s too late. We run on all cylinders and only notice we need a little help when things start to go wrong. Our health suffers and we develop a few ailments. How often do you hear people say, “I really need
