I haven’t done one of these introduction posts here before but love reading them and haven’t posted on here for such a long time and my baby is actually asleep for once, so here goes.
I’m a new mum to a strong willed sweet baby boy called Sunny and a chug called Shakti. I gave birth to my son a year ago in my living room and haven’t slept through the night since!
For as long as I can remember I have been consumed by the mysteries of life. Giving birth to my son planted me more deeply into the earth than I ever expected.
I struggle to name what I do but if I had to name it I would say I am a writer. As a girl I struggled with English but used to write to process my feelings and feel connected. In doing so I discovered how to connect with my soul. To date, most of the time I am writing I am writing to myself. To help move through something. I share it to help anyone else who might be going through something similar.
I believe that we are ALL intuitive and absolutely anyone can develop a relationship with their soul. I believe that our soul is connected to everything in both nature and the cosmos and by spending time with it and acting on its calls we can little by little find our way back ourselves, nature and each other.
It’s taken me a long time to name it but I think my mission is to weave the soul back into everyday life. Since I was a young girl I yearned for the reconnection of our humanness and our divinity without really being able to put words around it. The more I learn the more I am certain of the mystery itself.
I believe that all humans are sacred and that every body is holy. I have deep respect for all faiths and paths and yet personally have not found one path that speaks the language of the God/dess that I know in my heart.
I believe that we are living in a time of extreme change and that all the soul work in the world is a waste of time without taking grounded action to bring about consistent change. I believe that in order to truly work our light we need to be willing to journey into the shadows. I am a big believer in taking baby steps and have found that it takes a lot of faith and action to live a soul-led life.
I’m a fast walker who is learning to slow down, a coffee drinker who is studying herbalism. Born in Australia I now live in Glastonbury UK and think that maybe I feel at home here because it is the land of my ancestors. When I was 18 I worked five jobs to save enough money to afford a flight to the UK and traveled to the sacred sites of Scotland, England and Ireland. Looking back I feel such compassion for myself and am really proud that I let myself be led.
It’s taken me a long time to admit it but I talk to flowers and trees and my favourite spiritual practice is being in nature. I believe that we do not exist in nature, rather we actually ARE nature. And my number one teacher is and always has been Mother Earth.
I believe that she is teaching us how to be human every moment of every day and that if we each looked to the flowers and the diversity of the natural world around us we would remember our own true nature and embrace who we are and each other a lot more.
I believe we are all unique with a different note to play in the song of life. I believe that it is our differences that make us better. And that you being here on the planet right now matters.
I believe that no one is a higher authority of who you are and what your soul is calling you to do more than you. I believe we all have a role to play in this time of re-orchestration but only we know our role.
I mostly share my writing and poetry on here and am currently writing a book called Returning.
I believe that we are not for everybody and that it is in embracing our weirdness that we each light up the world with our presence.
