We Thrive

Let’s make 2016 a year where we all thrive and grab the opportunity to do so!

Prides, sets, lairs, clumps, schools, flocks, brands, churches, clubs, synagogues, temples, mosques, covens: these are only a few names for ‘community’. Almost all species of our world thrive in community. It is known that people are healthier (and happier) when feeling part of a community. Not belonging to a community makes creatures feel lonely and there is the danger of not thriving, of not ‘being safe in numbers’.

Without the sense of community on-going loneliness becomes like a chronic illness.

When I was a child, I fell in love with the stars. I remember looking up to the night sky as a nine year old, and have this feeling of longing to be in that place where everything sparkles, and to sparkle together with everything that […]

Battery Recharged and House Healing

Sig and I went to Drenthe the other day. I needed to be in Sacred Space, in an ancient one, to recharge my batteries. I always ask if I may enter, and when I leave, I give a small gift. It’s kind to give back when something is willing to help you feel the energy of the structure and the underlying (earth) energies.

I also like to do a spot of dowsing (pendelen) to keep my energetic sensitive flow going. I checked out where clear energy streams were leaving the structure – I checked their flow direction- and I found one energy stream going off centre running towards a barely visible path in the woodlands. I suspect that pathway is used by animals to enter the woods at night.

It’s wonderful to connect with the land, the ground, the sand of […]

Stepping Stones

An ancient bridge made out of stepping stones reminds me of the help and support I have received of many people. Those are family and friends, perfect strangers saying the ‘right thing’ and books.

One of those books that’s a stepping stone right now is “Tiny Beautiful Things”, by Cheryl Strayed. Cheryl was an Agony Aunt for some time and gives right out of the heart and gut advice to people. They are wise life-lessons for the onse reading it and I presume life changing words for the people who send her their issues.

I recommend this book to anyone who needs to feel hope, loved and want to get on with life. All letters written to Cheryl are of genuine people like you and me. Every answer given by Cheryl is a rich life lesson.

Last night I sobbed about one […]

Fearless

Being with my granddaughters makes me become fearless, their well-being (they have wonderful parents by the way) is paramount…

My kids in general make me fearless and my zest for life as an older woman makes me feel fearless. Also the well-being of us, people, makes me fearless. When I see unjustice being done in general makes me fearless.

From a very young age I would jump into a quarrel between people, school ‘chums’ if I spotted one. Seperating the warring parties and strike up a conversation.

Thank Heavens my work gives me full opportunity to celebrate my fearlessness, in helping people to understand their life situations, their struggles, their longing, their patterns, their un-patterning. Blocks and unblocking. Cheers to a Whole Earth where we all rise to be our best selves. Fearlessly.
