It's odd how things make a mark on us in strange ways. For as long as I have been exposed to it I have deeply hated listening to people talking about football. It might have been two of my bosses, father and son, talking near my desk at the engineering company I worked for, or … Continue reading For the hate of football
... there's more work to do. When I started my journey along the New Age path I picked up on the messages that stated we are here to clear our karma and that once we have done this we will reach and enlightened state akin to the great Buddha or Jesus himself. "All" we had … Continue reading If you’re still here….
Over the last few weeks old wounding has been brought to the fore as I deal with a challenging person in my life. My confidence in myself and my intelligence has been shaken and I was feeling pretty rubbish. This weekend I was able to get back to my biker family and found myself surrounded … Continue reading What triggers you?
Question the philosophies, question them every time... oh and trust your opinion. The other night I once again found myself faced with a New Cage* philosophy that I simply couldn't agree with. I was being told that the way to attain wealth was to give, and not only to give, but to give beyond my … Continue reading How to get rich… maybe
While I'm venting about "New Cage" philosophies I wanted to share another one that I think needs considering deeply. This is the one that says if you find someone you don't like they are mirroring something in you that you need to work on. The simplistic way that I have seen this taken is that … Continue reading Not everyone is a mirror for your shadow

I have also come to realise that other people do … Continue reading New Cage philosophies and how they harms us..
Messages from a Beech tree. Sometimes we can feel like the world is telling us we take up too much space; people want us to be quieter, less emotional, less excitable. We feel like the children of history that should be seen and not heard, and sometimes we feel we shouldn't even be seen. Today … Continue reading Stand tall
Again I find I haven't blogged for a while, this midlife unravelling has left me with little concrete to say. I've been searching for things that feel true to me and not things I have picked up along the way that helped me feel like I fitted in, felt safe or look good. I can … Continue reading We’re just not all wired the same
It's been 18 months since I found that I was being made redundant from a job I loved, and man it has been a journey. My first response was deep and utter despair. How was I going to find another job? This was the end of the world. I pulled out my trusty CBT Diary app … Continue reading You can manifest what you want – but only when the universe agrees
*lightbulb moment* It's just dawned on me why I don't get on with solo meditation... it feels like forced peace. I've just come out for my lunchtime walk and I'm sat in a quiet corner in the park. I have my salad, my journal, birds singing, flowers blooming, the wind in the trees, sun shining … Continue reading Meditation – a lightbulb moment..
