Day 24 - Christmas and Family Pondering

t’s that time of year now when life takes on a whole new dimension. Dare I say it, but Christmas is five weeks away. Edinburgh Christmas Markets opened today, just in time for our first minus degree weather. Looks like we’ll be heading for a white Christmas, which, when you are brought up in Australia, is a wonderful treat – a fantasy longed for at the height of an Aussie summer.

Day 23 - Spirit Communication

Over the past few days, I have heard a number of folk share issues related to their relationships. Each story has had its varying qualities and characteristics and intricacies of relationship issues or considerations. While these have differed, a common theme has been one of communication – limited communication, miscommunication, absent communication, fear of communication, cross-communication, conflict in communication…

Day 19 - A Flame within a Lantern: Light that is Love

Tonight, it is the light that moves me. Hours earlier I was sitting in my meditation chair looking across the room at the light emanating from my chest of draws. A lovely blue cloth adorns the wood.

On Day 11 of my writing challenge, I am ever aware that I am not alone in the world; that I am one of billions of people connected on various levels to each other, and to the Source of creation. I cannot but be moved to write today for peace, for connection and for Light. So I am bending the rules a little or perhaps not; my book has a combination of Spirit inspired words and my psycho-spiritual teachings. So too now, in this blog, I share a message from Spirit.

Day 10 - 'Everything is perfect, until it is compared to something else'

You’ll likely know that I’m participating in a writer’s workshop and that I am setting up a routine of writing towards book publication. Well, listening to the authors on the workshop, I caught myself comparing my work, my experience and my writing with them. And it wasn’t puffed up, self-empowerment comparison; it was the ‘Darn, I’ve got nothing new to say’ kind of comparisons.

Day 9 - Pondering Healing

Healing. What is healing? What does it mean? To heal… What does it mean to you, to heal? What does it mean to be healer? Can anyone be healer for another? These are the questions that I am left with today.
