A note from eternity

eternity

Eternity sent me a note, and I thought I’d share it with you. Precious Child of the Universe, you know who you are. Come closer. Unburden yourself of your past; step out of your old ideas and learned opinions. You recognize the truth in your heart which hums with the life force of your essence. Come. Trust the wisdom which calls from within, which has always called. It never gives up; requires no rest; experiences no indecision or insecurity. Shed … Keep reading…

Let it go.

Let it go.

“The spiritual life is never one of achievement. It is always one of letting go.” – Anonymous What are you hanging on to? What burdens your waking hours and haunts your dreams? The things we hang on to change the course of our lives. They inform our decisions, our interactions, relationships and attitudes. The more we hang on to, the less freedom we have. Letting go isn’t always as easy as saying it. We hang on to things that we … Keep reading…

Our dirty minds

Yoga

I shower every day and in this heat, often more than once. I brush my teeth morning and night. I do yoga to stretch and care for my body. I try to eat well (not always successfully) and I go to the dentist… less than I should. Green juice anyone? I do the dishes every day. I sweep, take out the trash, wash the clothes. I do these things because I have been taught to do them and I have … Keep reading…

Allow joy

Allow-joy

#soulshots is a series I’m creating over the summer as an expression of my inner journey. #soulshots increase immunity to fear and protect against the suffering which arises when we forget we are made from and for love. Allow joy. Allow it to bubble up within you; to express itself through you. Don’t block it, numb it or run away from it. You are worthy of joy. The pure, simple joy of life. It is there, if you allow it. … Keep reading…

Bienvenidos a La Peñita de Jaltemba

Guadalupe-Guayabitos

Try saying that one five times! Welcome to La Peñita de Jaltemba, a small town on the Pacific coast of Mexico, an hour north of Puerto Vallarta. We arrived on a rainy day.The clouds hung thick in the sky like sodden laundry and the streets, made from mud and stone, disappeared into giant potholes underneath our tires. “Uh ooooohhhh…” my internal dialogue began. I mean, they said it was local, but this is really local, I thought as we began … Keep reading…

A new design and a new direction

Pacific-view

The great thing about having a designer for a boyfriend is that you get free web design. The other thing is that you’re always last in the queue. Behind the projects of paying customers, behind TV watching and of course, flying. I’ve wanted to change things around here for a while. I’ve been busting to shake things up with a new design and slight change in direction but the truth is, it’s been good for me to be patient. I’ve … Keep reading…

Be Open

Soulshots

Over the coming months I’ll be creating a series of #soulshots which are expressions of my inner journey. These simple yet powerful messages arise out of my various practices of meditation and spiritual seeking. Sharing is a vital part of my practice and this is one way in which I’m doing that. #Soulshots are ‘shots’ of divine wisdom for the soul which increase our immunity to fear; providing protection from the suffering which arises when we are blocked from the … Keep reading…

Leaving San Miguel de Allende

Us

San Miguel de Allende was a soft landing for us. After the stress of Guatemala, mostly due to issues with Tyrhone’s paramotor training, having somewhere like San Miguel to gather ourselves and recover from such a challenging journey was an absolute blessing. We ended up in San Miguel because our friends Rob and Kellie were there. We had only met them briefly in Playa del Carmen but felt like we knew them well enough to impose ourselves at short notice. … Keep reading…

Let it be.

let it be soulshot

I participated in a live online meditation the other day. I’ve been meditating every day for over two months but knew I needed something new to take it to the next level. The thing about meditation as a practice is that you never arrive anywhere. You gain insight and understanding, sure, but the practice itself IS the true destination. It’s the perfect antidote to my results driven, impatient personality. Who knew practicing something would be the whole journey? No set … Keep reading…

Transitions are tricky

Change thumb

You’d think I’d be good at them by now. A flight-attendant who zig-zagged the globe for a decade; a drunk who got sober; a writer who decided to start. A traveler who left home to do it forever… But transitions are always tricky… I recently experienced a huge inner transition. I’ve tried to explain, express and write about it because it’s been huge for me, this one. Overwhelmingly positive, life affirming, empowering. I’ve been filled with more clarity and love. … Keep reading…
