I Think I Love Me (so what am I so afraid of ?)

As you know, I have a thing about songs and films inspiring posts from time to time. Today is another example of that – this song (somewhat annoyingly) has been running through my head for two days. I knew on this morning’s walk that it was time to write about it. (David Cassidy ‘I think I love You’ from YouTube). Since January, I’ve been on what I call a ‘self-love-apalooza,’ which has involved delving into some extreme self-love and self-care rituals. As always, when faced with deep reflections of my own worth and what that means in the face of Love, it hasn’t been easy. The past few days have been extra hard, and hence the song. ‘I think I love you, so what am Continue reading I Think I Love Me (so what am I so afraid of ?)

Life Lessons from the Full Monty

If you haven’t seen The Full Monty, it’s a 1997 film about a bunch of unemployed guys in the North of England who decide that for one night, they’ll bare all to earn some quick cash. It’s a funny, and in many ways touching film about the personal, inner journeys each man takes on the way to full frontal, public nudity. Here’s a short clip of scenes from the film: There are so many ways we can learn life lessons, and at first glance this may not be the most obvious place to look. Even seemingly light-hearted films like this have as much to teach us any book written by the biggest name author. It’s just a matter of stepping back from the story of Continue reading Life Lessons from the Full Monty

Imperfection: Embracing the Art of Fucking Up

Hey, guess what? I’m not perfect. Well, suck it up, buttercup, because neither are you. There is no such thing as perfection, despite what we’re taught or shown or led to believe by ‘the powers that be.’ Even Source/God/whatever you choose to call it, which we’ve always believed to be perfect, isn’t perfect because that doesn’t exist. What? How can Source not be perfect, when it creates everything as perfection? Well, because it doesn’t believe in imperfection or recognise ‘mistakes,’ it also can’t access that impossible perfection that we humans aspire to. I’ll try to put it another way – the existence of one aspect of perfection must be acknowledged in order for the other to exist. In this case, Source does not acknowledge that Continue reading Imperfection: Embracing the Art of Fucking Up

Goddess Wanted: Apply Within

At first I thought of calling this article, ‘Where the Heck is my Inner Goddess?’ but realised in a way, that question answers itself. My (Inner) Goddess is within. So why have I had such difficulty finding her? I’ve been doing a whole lot of letting go lately, and as I do, I find new perspectives flooding into me, and new layers still to be uncovered. I realised that a big part of the Inner Goddess is a Mother, and I’ve had some pretty distorted ideas about what that means. Without a healthier view of the concept of motherhood, I can’t embrace the fullness of my Divine Feminine, my Inner Goddess. We’re all born in the perfection of who we are, and as time goes Continue reading Goddess Wanted: Apply Within
