Hello beautiful beings! I just wanted to send a bit of information today about the power of initiation and embodied living. October promises to be the most transformational month of 2020, which we can either fight against, or learn to harness the power for our benefit.
The initiation process can be a bumpy ride, to say the least. We can often feel tossed into the abyss, without light or guidance to navigate the change. But there are things that we can do to bring form into the formless, to give some foundation and direction. Here are a few of the best I've found:
1. Set your non-negotiable priorities and follow them! This involves you deciding what really has value in your life (including possessions, experiences, relationships, quality of life, etc), and saying No to what doesn't align, and a big Hell Yes to what does! If you do not choose what you want, you'll get to experience anything and everything that the universe has on...
We are moving towards an amazing New Moon in Virgo. I wanted to break this down a bit so that you can take full advantage of the magic we're immersed in this week!
First, the New Moon... I see it as tabula rasa, a clean slate. Take a moment to feel into the energy of a clean slate, a new beginning. Feel the calm, the quiet, a sense of peace.
The New Moon is dark, without light. For some, this can feel unnerving, with an inability to see what is coming, what we are moving towards. But in the darkness, the past is erased, there is no set path to follow, nothing to fulfill. You are there in the quiet, within your heart, fully present. And fully open to possibility.
In the few days surrounding the New Moon, we plant seeds for the coming weeks and beyond. We are able to make decisions regarding the experiences we would like to have, the ways we want to feel, and the quality of life that we want to live.
As our fears and pain are triggered, we are tempted to lash out, to criticize, and to judge the acts that have contributed to our discomfort. We rant about injustice, we shout at ignorance, we fight aggression. This course of action may provide temporary relief, allowing us to feel, momentarily, that we are 'better' than those who create suffering, superior in comparison.
But as we wage war against war, we feed it.
As we cut through the words of another, we cut ourselves.
We are each natural communicators, through our words, our actions, and our choices. We express ourselves in infinite ways, through our bodies, our minds, and through what we create in our daily lives. But we often view our communication as our own, within a bubble, limiting its reach, and in what we receive.
True, honest communication is Communion. It is a tribal sharing, a giving and receiving, a way to understand and...
Are you trying to simply Cause an Effect, when you could Revolusionise your World?
We look for ways to add to our lives, when we could be multiplying, growing exponentially in power, influence, grace, glory.
We focus on subtracting infinitesimal barriers and blocks, making minute adjustments.
But we could refine ALL that stands in the way of our gifts, our calling.
You may believe that you are healing, but are you simply creating temporary relief, just enough to get by, just enough to survive?
Are you fooling yourself into remaining in survival, when you could actually make it possible to thrive?
We feel more comfortable changing in small increments, tiny steps, small thinking, only focusing on what we feel we are capable of changing, one bit at a time. We make a small adjustment with consumption, a little change with our buying habits, tiny changes in our ways of thinking or seeing, which create a finite and limited impact. You plant a small seed in depleted soil,...
Changing Debt to Service...
Karma, cause and effect, often evokes doubt and fear for many of us. We view Karma as punishment, torture, as limitation that binds us through lifetimes and incarnations. We assume that we are guilty, worthy of pain and suffering, and our energies, as a result, are dedicated towards proving that we have repented for sins of the past. We maintain relationships that create disharmony, we deny abundance in order to show that we reject any joy, showing the world that we are willing to pay for our crimes of the past. We chastise ourselves through our choices, because who are we to feel that we ‘deserve’ more…
We view God as judge, our fears make up our juries, and our suffering is the sentence. We believe that the world is a hard, cruel place, a hell of our own creation, where our incarnations serve as a living hell, ensuring that we learn to be better, to do better, so that we can avoid the suffering in the future. On energetic levels, we...
In a world of contrast and contradiction, we often look for ways to trade one for another. To change one circumstance for another, one relationship for another… But these exchanges take up time, energy, and often leave us wanting. Our comfort zones are limited and limiting, our past experiences colour our perceptions of what is possible to create. We look to the past and to others around us to see what is on offer, because we believe that we need to follow. But if we are always following the past, we never create a different future, we only create what has been.
We watch other women to see what is acceptable as a woman. We look to other men to act in ways that are expected. We emulate leaders and others in places of power to fill those roles. We watch teachers in an attempt to teach others, or ourselves.
We listen to the stories of our ancestors’ suffering and pain and assume we will endure the same. We read the stories of our histories, full of abuse, pain, and waste,...
You may have noticed that my offerings have evolved over the past year or so. So have I. And if you are following my work, so have you, and I'm so glad to have you with me on this journey!
With everything I write, every event that I offer, there is an opportunity for you to release the beliefs, emotions, behaviours, and labels that are untrue, so that you can BE the truth, an embodied example of highest potential.
My own process includes regular meditation, study, food and movement that nourishes my physical self, and in working with the elements and energies present, which support evolution and consciousness. I invite you to join me in these practices, the initiations...
What does Initiation mean? Put simply, it is a process that facilitates change for your benefit, for the better. Initiation is present in our daily lives, in smaller, more incremental ways. But we're going to work together, following new ways to open up the spaciousness within, initiating you into more profound...
Hello Tribe! I hope that you are well on this sunny morning! I wanted to send a note of reassurance and encouragement, as we move through the magic of this eclipse season.
Periods of transition and change can often be the most unsettling of times. We can feel uncertain about the next step, afraid of the unknown, or worried that we'll make the wrong decision.
The reality is that these liminal spaces, the space between who we were and who we will become, are actually pretty magical. These are the areas where we are least set in how things are supposed to be, and in what your life has to become. There is enough spaciousness within ourselves, our minds, our lives, for bigger movement, more stretching, deeper growth.
So while we are not in our comfort zones (which is often where your subconscious mind prefers to be) the reward for taking the risk will always outweigh the fear.
Your best option at these time, is not to hesitate, but to take the next step. Often, when we feel lost or...
2020 has been a challenging, transformative year! I am so grateful for all that has healed, and diligently working through whatever is still in process.

I know that over the past few weeks, I've felt elated, excited, inspired, exhausted, frustrated, and everything in between. In these moments of perceived chaos, I find myself reconnecting with the wisdom of Daring Greatly (below you'll see part of the speech by Teddy Roosevelt, and the image to the right will link to info on on Brene' Brown, who is a master of speaking about Vulnerability & Courage. And you'll love her Netflix special, The Call to Courage)
I share the above info because I know that in times of evolution and revolution, the worst thing we can do is put up...
Hello beautiful beings! How are you being supporting you to transform and grow right now?
I am having a pretty incredible year so far (and am so grateful for the experiences!) I will be the first to admit that that it has not been an easy path, but it has been extraordinary. <3
I travelled to London a few weeks ago, to train as a Kambo Practitioner. This powerful natural medicine is now one of my regular offerings in Scotland (and beyond!)
If you have never experienced a Kambo Ceremony before, more information can be found here. The medicine is a powerful healer, and I have found the results to be profound. I cannot wait to move forward with this work!
At the moment, I am offering private ceremonies (1-4 people) which can be scheduled now. And I will be partnering up with the awesome Julia Melville to offer larger group ceremonies in Glasgow & Edinburgh on a monthly basis (venues and dates currently being confirmed), and...
