THE UNAPOLOGETIC EXPRESSION OF SELF

f395a17cc157c7e1c6985d59d741f530

It seems like a no brainer. We have been told since we were knee high to a grasshopper – ‘just be yourself‘. But it kind of always seemed to follow up with a ‘oh but not like that!‘. We have been tiptoeing this fine line of authentic self expression, and acceptable member of society. Acceptable […]

SISTERS (ARE DOIN’ IT FOR THEMSELVES)

For someone who loves words so very much, they sure haven’t loved her so much back as of late. It’s almost as if we are allotted a certain number of words to use and express and curate – and once we hit that quota, we done. My word budget has been used entirely in erryday […]

RECIPE FOR A SPIRITUAL SHIT STORM

e33524231eb16ac5e17ac698717e3512

I ain’t a guru. I don’t have a recipe for happiness, or love, or contentment, or adventure – I kind of believe it’s up to us to have a play around our own kitchens for those ones. But what I have learned lately, rather unintentionally, is a recipe for discontent, ickiness and disconnection. This is […]

SHARING THE LOVE – SARAH HARVEY’S MAGICAL PROSE

1

Sarah mother flippin’ Harvey. A goddess of prose. A wordsmith like no other. Her lyrical whimsy is so powerful and always seems to find me when I need. You may recall I shared her incredible words a while back in 2015 – have a looksie if you’re keen – and rather serendipidously her words have […]

THE LIFE CHANGING MAGIC OF BONERS

11357462_474013826095913_1032948399_n-1

I am known to friends and family to use the word ‘boner’ way too liberally. If someone is passionately sharing a story about universal synchronicity and divine guidance – I reply with ‘Ooph, spiritual boner’. If I’m reading the incredible words and ideas of a brilliant mind – I acknowledge my ‘intellectual boner’ silently to […]

SOULFUL AF GOALS FOR A MAGICAL YEAR

1

Something that turns me on (life boner, not bedroom boner) to no avail are character dualities – those seemingly contradictory behaviours that exist in total opposition (but total harmony) within each of us. People with hard exteriors that cry in films; ladies who drop profanities like it’s hot, and classic type a hippies. It makes […]

SHIFTING GEARS [AND WHY THE SUPERMOON CAN EAD]

tumblr_m2aqcq1tnr1qh3v5mo1_500

I love lunar cycles, I do. I truly honour the push and pull of energies, the influence that the moon has on our mood, energy and physicality, the particular connection between lady cycles and lunar cycles (side note – reading Adore your Cycle by Claire Baker and it’s seriously empowering and game-changing) … I dig […]

Which is just amazing – the industry has really experienced a shift as of late and is totally a […]

WHEN THE WORDS DON’T FLOW SO EASY

b32befcfa2e07779aefa6cc8d48ff74d

Dean Koontz knows what’s up in this girls’ head. I am obsessed with words. Reading them, creating them, weaving them into lyrical prose, exploring the words of others, teaching them – both my careers in language therapy and in writing are grounded in this common theme of an absolute infatuation with words and expression. So, […]
