Words to Nibble on…

So back to the book in my hand… each page is like a magic carpet with all the threads moving and undulating over a luminous aether of unseen energy. I gently turn the page and I’m struck by the little moment of joy, excitement, anticipation – the unknown words that are about to enter me via my eyes, my mind, my heart.

The True Kindess of Money & Muffins…

For some reason we are hard-wired to reject compliments but to accept and receive criticisms. We somehow believe that if we say ‘yes thank you, I love my hair also’ that we are being vain and that’s just not so. We may feel we must quickly offer them a compliment in kind, but this is in effect ‘mirroring’ their gift back and is a cunning way to not fully receive the gift offered to you by them. It’s like letting someone buy you a coffee and immediately reimbursing them for it.

A Dandelion in the Gutter…

I wonder if she realised how important that moment was to someone sitting in a car not 2 metres away… I doubt it, but then we never really know how our existence can impact another person, especially those we haven’t met. While she was experiencing the dandelion, I was experiencing her, experiencing the dandelion…

Do Bad Habits Drink Tea?

Self-Imposed Limitations are like unwanted house guests – we invite them in for cup of tea only to realise they’re staying the night and before you know it they’ve become part of the furniture and the idea of living without them is too hard to bear…so we keep them around.

The Reiki Precepts, a Path to Awakening…

This is how we should use the Precepts; they are the ‘finger pointing to the Moon’ – we should use them to grow into our Awareness but don’t consider for a moment that they are the Truth themselves. We can get caught up on their various translations, which one is right and which version is closest to what Mikao Usui intended, but to me, as long as it remains simple and true to his intention – whatever works for you.

So, lets journey through the Precepts together travelling a little deeper through their layers and see where we end up…

Dancing by Swamp Light…

I wrote the bulk of this blog last Wednesday night (1st May 2019) after my Ecstatic Dance night with @movewithnikchung . I’ve published it in sort of a ‘journal format’ since that’s how I wrote it. This wasn’t easy to publish, and I nearly didn’t, but I felt the next step was to let my…

Caterflies & Butterpillars…

There’s a great mystery in the process, we know the scientific explanation but even knowing how it happens doesn’t preclude the mystery. This is probably why we resonate with this cycle on a spiritual level; there’s a common sense of ‘not knowing’ what happens to us between our death and our birth as well, and here it is happening right in front of us but we still can’t quite ‘see’ it.

Feel the Emptiness…

We had a partial Solar Eclipse in Capricorn today, perhaps you felt it. There was a feeling of gravity about it for me, a pulling towards the earth and at the same time being weightless.  There’s a crowd around the Sun and Moon today, Saturn sits on one side – very comfortable here in his favourite sign of Capricorn –…

Enough.

I wanted to talk about the concept of ‘enough’ as compared to the idea of ‘abundance’. This has been rattling around in my head since July when I had the rare opportunity to sit alone with my brother at a café after his Naturopath appointment. He had a cancer called Mesothelioma, brought about from working…
