This is a shortened version of the full list which can be downloaded as a PDF: The ABCs of Healthy Relationships. Is it really as easy as ABC? Good relationships don’t just happen, they take attention, maturity and a willingness to learn and grow. Relationships are the ultimate mirrors, so it’s never all about the other person, but about what they may be reflecting to you, from within you. And you can choose what you reflect, especially if what you’re seeing is not what you think you want to see. As you read through the list, consider if you embody the things you’d most like in a partner, and if not, is it fair to expect them to meet those needs in you? Consider whether Continue reading Relationships A to Z→
This is an annual intuitive tarot reading for a general audience covering the year 2017. The year is divided into quarters, each covering a three-month block. I’m using the Llewellyn Tarot (by Anna-Marie Ferguson) to read the main energy, supported by Healing with the Angels Oracle Cards (by Doreen Virtue) to offer guidance and possible attitudes or actions to take. I begin the reading by pulling a Goddess Guidance Oracle card (by Doreen Virtue) to offer a theme for the year, which permeates the energy of each quarter and gives an idea of the overarching imprint for 2017. Theme(s) for the year: Affirmation: You are Radiant Goddess card: Oonagh (Easy Does It) ‘There is no need to hurry or force things to happen.

Varying levels and forms of attachment differ by degree of emotional investment. There is bonding, a natural and healthy form of attachment, which usually begins with the bond between parents and children. Then there is attachment, a more complex connection between a person and a situation or another person. This can be both healthy and unhealthy depending on the emotional investment. There’s also entanglement, or enmeshment, which happens in dysfunctional and abusive relationships, those rooted in trauma bonding structures. It’s natural to become attached to people, things and situations that have become a part of your life in some way. We all have the need for emotional connections and the desire to feel supported and seen. The challenge begins when the attachments become unhealthy; for Continue reading Defining Attachment→
Your magical body is the home of your soul, the conduit you chose to explore this thing called life. It’s a masterpiece! It may not feel immediately easy to access body-love when you wake up every day and see the fifteen pounds that weren’t there last year, or the scars and stretch marks that ‘mar’ your skin. How can you love your body when the images you see every day portray a version of beauty that doesn’t describe your unique fabulousness? It may feel challenging or even impossible to reach a state of love for your body if you’ve experienced shame, abuse or bullying for the way you look or move. So, what’s the best advice I can give? Start where you are. Your body Continue reading An Ode to your Magical Body→
Out on a brief sojourn this morning, I was contemplating the concept of I AM. We’re told it’s the most powerful phrase in the Universe, and as I’m currently exploring the energy of narcissism through the video series, something became clear.
One of the prevalent experiences in the narcissist dynamic is projection, and if you conjugate the verb to be, you’ve got a pretty powerful projection tool. I am, you are, he/she/it is, we are, they are, you (pl) are. So anything you add after these words has the same impact as the powerful I AM statements we are encouraged to use as affirmations.
This is also a nod to the concept of Oneness; we could say that they all mean the same thing. When you say to someone else YOU ARE ____________, you’re actually saying I AM ___________. So it’s worth observing carefully what follows those words, because they’re a direct reflection of what’s in your field.
It also speaks again to the idea that healing begins within. We heal ourselves by addressing and acknowledging our own woundedness. We attain Oneness in the same way, by acknowledging the wounds of duality and healing the separation.
