The transformational power of beauty

When we allow beauty to be fully present, we are transformed. It really is that simple. Beauty is natures way of saying yes to divine order in chaos. To a harmony and frequency that transcends our comprehension. We humans try to reduce things to the explainable. To scientific sequence. We rationalise. Measure. Seek to make sense of. But beauty outfoxes … Read More

Die Exhausted from Creativity

Retire from what? We can only retire from that which steals from our soul. Showing up each day in service to something far greater than our singular self is an additive, enriching every fibre of our being. I cannot imagine a life of stopping. I want to be so thoroughly used up. I want each day to feel alive with … Read More

What are you devoted to? A gift for this holiday season.

Devotion…a words that rolls, plump with deliciousness, off my tongue. Not devotion in a religious sense, but devotion in its origins, to formally vow my attention to something. Vow my attention to something…? What is that something? Is it the daily urge to stay buried in social media? The reflex of needing to check my inbox? Is this devotion? Or … Read More

What is Money and why does Money consume so much of human existence?

Money is a word that comes laden with human expectations, projections, hopes, dreams, pain, suffering, frustration, disappointment, lust, desire, greed, control, power, manipulation, wistfulness, loss, disgust, guilt, longing… Onto the Spirit of Money lives the entire spectrum of human emotions.

Entrepreneurship, gestation and the journey of birthing a business

  Nature has its own gestation rate. Mothers know gestation. They know it is for approximately 9 months. They know the emotional roller coaster that is beyond hormones…the excitement, fear, anxiety, frustration, trepidation, and often in the end, impatience. Fathers get to experience this in a different way, maybe as the brunt of the emotional storm of the mother, often … Read More

Two approaches – abundant of spirit, or critical, righteous and the prima-donna

Two approaches One. Yesterday I saw myself in less than favourable colours. I attended an event and I walked in with preconceived judgement that was sourced from some field of my old default pattern of superiority. “I know better.” This approach shut down a whole world of possibility. I squeezed myself into a narrow field of righteousness. And criticism. Exactly … Read More

Sky drama – the beauty of pure raw emotion

Even the sky has drama. One day clear and blue, another angry and yellow. But do we judge the sky for its drama? Do we try to change it? Or can we see the beauty in the drama? That the dark clouds and the passage of light make something so unique and unforgettable. Human emotion is like the clouds….some days … Read More

The blues can be beautiful too

To wake and feel blue might be experienced as a problem, or a gift. Those blue moods are calling out to us…warning of some part of self that needs attendance. Look… here…..go deeper…go down into the messy dark places that never see light.. For there…there is a pulse of an ancient memory that longs to be seen. And in the … Read More

How do we give wild flight?

There is a part of each of us that is wild. Rough, raw, prone to fury. Uncontained. This morn reminded me of my wildness. It reminded me of the few places in society we can allow our wildness to live out loud. Perhaps dancing in your living room. Or running a trail. Attending a music festival. Camping, hiking. The need … Read More
