When You Are Afraid Remember This…

Tree of Love

You are never alone. The tree of love that grows from inside of you is with you always.  You are never lost. You are connected to the real-time collective wisdom in this dimension and beyond. If you don’t know what to do right now, you will do.  Time is an illusion. If you panic about … Read more

If Not This, Then What?

You can only create now

What will it take for you to listen to yourself if a pandemic won’t do it?  My first reaction of rage when I saw that everything was about to slow right down, turned quickly to silence.   If not this, then what?  My barely-started novel was still sitting there from when I got back from travelling … Read more

Happy Christmas!!

Christmas Poem

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house,

Discerning people will perceive that a percentage of your brain is dedicated to conveying perfection and another percentage to the shame-guilt when … Read more

Feeling Demotivated? Do this

Feeling demotivated

This summer I have travelled alone to six different cities. For work and pleasure. I had forgotten how powerful it is to not go with a friend, partner or family. You will lie to yourself as I did: “I prefer to go with someone else, I like sharing experiences”. Of course you do! But here … Read more
