A new year, a new immram

Wisdom from Grandmother Moon Samhain, one of two “hinges” in the Irish year, is a good time to reflect and release so that we can begin the new journey with Father Sun with fresh eyes ... perhaps letting go of “facts” and assumptions that were really just self-limiting beliefs. Some of these are so very… Continue reading A new year, a new immram


Divine Imperfection and Repeated “Mistakes”

Last January, I shared my thoughts on Divine Imperfection: the Joy of Making Mistakes, inspired by a Neil Gaiman quote from 2011. The original post resonated with many people, and I received several private messages and emails with thoughts and comments that folks hesitated to post publicly. And that’s okay too! A common thread in these private… Continue reading Divine Imperfection and Repeated “Mistakes”


Divine Imperfection: the Joy of Making Mistakes

This time last year, I posted Neil Gaiman's well-known quote about mistakes, and it's something that still resonates so deeply with me. If you haven’t heard his quote, here’s the background: On December 31, 2011, Gaiman (one of my favourite writers) posted this thought-provoking New Year's Wish in his online journal: "I hope that in… Continue reading Divine Imperfection: the Joy of Making Mistakes


Wisdom of the Acorn

When Nature plants an acorn, it strives to yield its potential — and destiny — as a magnificent oak, its growth tempered only by the amount of sun, rain, and nutrients. But what of we humans? What other factors may be in play? Our beliefs — and that of others — can shape who we… Continue reading Wisdom of the Acorn

Use your Inner “Soulstice” to chase the storms

We often hear advice to "stay present", to find our inner stillness, to be "in the now" as a way of finding peace and tranquility, or for reducing anxiety. But being present or still can also help us find our inner strength. Lately, I have been drawn to the concept of inner strength — what it… Continue reading Use your Inner “Soulstice” to chase the storms

Changing the story of our Soul

"Our bodies are made of stardust; our souls are made of stories." - Rev. Thomas Rhodes So many of us are shocked and saddened by the current state of our planet and its people — the violence, fear, inequality, non-sustainability — and speak of their despair, that they feel powerless to change it. But what… Continue reading Changing the story of our Soul

Releasing the layers to your Inner Self

Hold space and step into YOUR best way of being

Let's practise a little unconditional love today! When I first read the pictured quote from Goethe, I got caught up in the "ought to be" part... My mind started to wonder if this was being judgmental. Who decides what "ought to be" for someone else? Unless we ask someone what they ought to be, then… Continue reading Hold space and step into YOUR best way of being

Expand your life with courage

Anaïs Nin said that “Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage." What do you think? Do we all start with an infinite amount of courage? Do we "unlearn" courage? Do we "learn" fear? Is fear the same for everyone? I don't think it is. What might be a simple act for some of… Continue reading Expand your life with courage
