I am mostly smiling on the outside. But I am screaming on the inside. I have learnt to listen to this scream. Finally. It has taken me 50 years to give ‘the scream’ its dues. I used to blame myself when I heard the scream. What is wrong with you? Why do some things have […]

becoming a chaplain

February 7, 2016

Last year I qualified as a Chaplain. It was a lot of hard work. I was the square peg in the round hole – Aboriginal, not overly religious, questioning. We had to do three-day intensives every few months. I became so overwhelmed on the first intensive, I cried a lot. Most of the fifty people who attended the […]

. I watched this video five times and got something different out of it each time. I had the good fortune to be in a training group conducted by Kent Hoffman about five years ago. What he fails to mention in this talk is that the work he has been doing for the past 20 […]

I haven’t visited this place since August last year. Lots of stuff has been happening. The Universe does indeed work in mysterious ways. All of the balls that I had thrown into the air are starting to fall into place, some gently, some with a thud, but all in surprising ways. Limits are being stretched. […]

departing from Kissing The Limitless

OK, I’m up to the part of the book where I am required to do many different types of breathing exercises in many different types of ways – with candles, with water, with visualisations, with exercise. And this is where T Thorn Coyle has lost me. There are 45 exercises in Kissing the Limitless. This is where […]

A week ago I decided to go to church. Our tiny community has two churches. One is what we call in Australia “happy clappers”, a charismatic church, and the other is Anglican. There is a Catholic church about 15 minutes drive away. I chose the Anglicans. My husband, a Catholic through and through, was incredulous. […]

I am a Fire Horse. I’m bold and reckless and fearless, and I dance to the beat of my own drum. I am also Aquarius, an air sign. Air and fire are a volatile mix. Oh my, what a combination! Fiercely independent – I only answer to myself. Source of image: http://www.romanceworks.com/01_Gallery%20Pics/11_Fantasy/65_fireDancer_Pic.jpg In much of the Western world, […]

I have often wondered at the apparent lack of drama in my life these past few years. I certainly have had more than my fair share of hardship in my life. But these past few years everything has been going quite well. This year however has presented some interesting challenges. Challenges that have tested me […]

In January I submitted the review of my studies of the Druidic Bardic grade. It was deemed that I had not done enough work to proceed to the Ovate grade. This was OK. I was telling myself that I was ready but deep down I knew I was not. There was something else bubbling underneath. I’ve always […]

The Cecil B. DeMille classic movie The Ten Commandments was on. I didn’t want to watch the TV, but as soon as the movie started I was captivated. This movie is shown every year around Christmas, and it has never held my interest. But this year was different. There was none of the typical cynicism […]
