Don’t marry that man

Don’t marry the man who follows white feathers.

Don’t marry the man who knows that your weeping lets you soften.

Don’t marry the man who brings you flowers just because.

Don’t marry the man whose arms bring you deep physical peace.

Don’t marry the man who truly sees you in all your power and vulnerability.

Don’t marry the man who wants to love you for the rest of his years.

When you meet this man don’t marry him.

Choose him every day not just once.

What to write about…

Write about what is in your heart each day, write about what you love and what you fear in your humanity. Write about the colours that you see and the rhythms that you feel. Write the words that come out of your mouth when you feel most alive. Write about the unspeakable beauty of the river  with the flaming autumn leaves speckled like a pointillist in the branches and on the ground.

Write about your little dog and how her yearning to be held mirrors your own. Write about the cries of love from your soul and from your soul family. Write about the flame of courage that burns through your resistance to open to let the love in, to feel yourself in being felt. To be vulnerable and soft and wrong, but infinitely lovable and pure perfection.

Write the song of Pegasus as he gazes on the scene, tears of joy strike a spring in your heart and it gushes forth.

Write about the sweet beauty of grief and the fragile transparency of your cocoon, write about the delicate, fine moment between now and then, the veil between here and everywhere, how they are two sides of the same page.

Is there more juice at my fingertips, are the electrons firing and the whirligigs whirling? Are the hammer and tongs sparking on high? A constant stream, a river, a flow.

All wisdom is here, all words are prepared, all feelings are known and all stories are told.

Crack open your inner world like a pomegranate, let the ruby seeds tumble in glistening cascades into the hands and mouths and hearts of all who seek refreshment and the simple sweetness of living.

99.9% Love

Love has no edges.

There are no borderlands

No signs on the gate

No entry fee

No you and me. 

In an empty room with no walls, all of everywhere is full. 

There is so much nothing no more can fit in

and in that 99.9% of empty space 

love flows! 

love dances! 

love creates life. 

Into that empty space go all the echoes of our doing

And all the vibrations of our being.

Out of that empty space comes life. 

It’s the elegant alchemy of experience.

Time to birth your big vision…

You hold a big vision. You know you are a visionary and your dream project is ready to be born. The pressure of its immanence is trying and you feel full to bursting with it. This vision is so magical to you, like a lover or a child, it enchants you and you cherish it fiercely.

You may feel overwhelmed and perhaps some fear about how something so huge can come into form through you. How can you get it out into the world?

Now is the time to slow down, to breathe, to stop pushing. Now is the time to take space, to ground yourself and ground the energy and release the pressure of holding it. Time to let the energy move with its own momentum, to trust its timing.

Now is the time to trust yourself to hold the process and to know what is required of you at every step to bring your dream to life. To know that you alone can do the work that has chosen you.

Now is the time to put down all of what you think you should do, and listen deeply to what wants to happen.

Now is the time to know that it is all within you, prefect,y formed, and that you are called on now to just relax, trust your self and trust life to support the birthing of your vision.

The world wants your gifts, and life wants to help you to deliver them.

I have been on this journey myself over he last 6 years, a journey of many stages, many twists and turns. Along the way I’ve collected some treasures, some fragments of remembering, some simple tools which I have tested and come to trust. I now offer them to you for your journey.

If you are ready to go deeper. To stop and listen. To breathe the next stage if your journey into being. To ground your vision and walk with it step by step, I will walk beside you for a while and see what we see.

If you are ready – and of course you will not feel ready, but you will know that the time has come nonetheless – I will hold a space for you and reflect back to you what you know, what you see and what you carry.

I will hold a space for you to ground your vision and bring it into form.

My invitation to you now is to trust yourself, to trust that you have and will receive everything that you need. To strip away all your trying to do and be and to just take some space to reconnect with what you already are, and to set out from that place.

You can learn to navigate by trusting your body wisdom, you heart and your intuition. Starting small with the everyday moments. You can listen to hear your own voice. You can choose to be utterly yourself and let life have you, all of you. You can create by your choices and own your creations and your agency.

If these words land in your gut and you know this is your time, let’s connect and see how I can be of service to you and your vision at this time.

I offer In person  or Skype coaching sessions and tailor my approach to each individual and their project.

For my sister

I wish you to feel the love that comes from all directions

I wish you to stand in the landscape of your dreams and know that you are “in the picture”

I wish you a path that lights up for you as you walk it

I wish you a hot bubbly bath whenever you really need one

I wish you the peace and pleasure of solitude to hear yourself

I wish you snorting, crying, weeing a little bit laughter with true friends

I wish you to experience life as an afternoon tea laid on for your delectation

I wish you  to fly through the forest at night and smell it and hear all the sounds

I wish you to share your gifts wherever you are invited and see the world

I wish you to discover places, people and experiences that feel like they were made just for you

I wish you to know you always have infinite choices

I wish you to know you always have a home with the people who love you

I wish you to be the most kind and loving to yourself when you think you’ve messed up

I wish you to hold on to all the things that you loved as a child and know they are important for you always

Unkind

One day chasing birds and you’re Mohammed Ali again.
Wind your neck in.
Is it fair?
Your eyes get
Hungry and wild
And suddenly
Everything is a big deal.

I call you up to talk about
My anger and my plans.
You tell me
As if it were the same thing
How you cannot wait
For life
To be over.

You knock at my virtual door
In your virtual pyjamas
With a flickering oil lamp and a bear.
Not tonight.
For God’s sake.
Back out in the cold with you.
