  • How’s Your Luck?

    How’s Your Luck? When you talk about luck, then many people think of luck in the same way as they think of chance, or more likely probability. For example the odds of winning the lottery (several million to one) relegates luck into the realm of fantasy. As a result many people scoff at the concept Continue reading »

  • Change Your World

    Change Your World “If you follow the crowd, you will go no further than the crowd. But if you walk alone, and find your own way, you will likely find yourself in places no one has ever been before.” I thought that I would offer a story in this month’s newsletter. Thanks to whoever posted Continue reading »

  • Not Only, But Also …

    Not Only, But Also…  “Self-knowledge leads to wonder, and wonder to curiosity and investigation, so that nothing interests people more than people, even if only one’s own person.” Alan Watts   At first glance, there appears to be three fans of this newsletter, who regularly write to me and (mostly) say how much they enjoy it Continue reading »

  • When You Do Not Know What to Do

    “When you do not know what to do, relax and tell yourself that other portions of yourself do know; they will take over. Give yourself some rest. Remind yourself that in many ways you are a very successful person as you are. Success does not necessarily involve great intellect or great position or great wealth; Continue reading »

  • What Are You Here To Do in This Lifetime?

    What are you here to do in this lifetime? I take the view that as Souls (prior to incarnation) we have all made Soul choices and contracts for this lifetime that reflect our own particular Soul journeys and offer us opportunities for learning and growth. Hopefully you are working through that rather nicely? Likewise, we Continue reading »

  • Ring a Bell and I’ll Salivate

    Ring a Bell and I’ll Salivate Over 100 years ago the Russian scientist Ivan Pavlov made an important discovery in the basic understanding of how we all function. Pavlov of course worked initially with dogs and discovered how he was able to “condition” them to start salivating to the sound of a bell. What Pavlov Continue reading »

  • The Journey of the Soul

    The Journey of the Soul “The problem with our culture is we cling to so many different truths. Yet, the truths that we cling to also depend on our point of view.

  • Are You There Yet?

    Are You There Yet? This life is a journey ….from birth to death…and what we do in between is largely a combination of the personal circumstances we birth ourselves into, the qualities that we have innately, those we learn from others or pick up somewhere else along the way and what actions (or inactions) we Continue reading »

  • What If It’s All Quantum Reality?

    What If It’s all Quantum Reality I can’t claim to understand the intricate principles of quantum reality, however I suspect it is all really very simple. The observer influences the experiment; your intention creates your reality (Biology of Belief) etc etc – in Quantum Physics it’s knowsn as Bell’s Theorem. I’d suggest that the essence Continue reading »

  • What If It’s All Hypnosis?

    When I was training in clinical hypnosis what seems like a lifetime ago, I was told about a man called Stephen Wolinsky, who’d written quite a few books about hypnosis, trance states and psychology. The basic premise of his work is that most humans spend all of their lives in a trance state, and it Continue reading »

  • Your Inner World Creates

    Your Inner World Creates   Curiously, the concept of your inner world creating your outer reality still remains an elusive one for many people. Even after nearly 12 months full of fear creating errr….a world full of fear, a lot of people still haven’t got it. And perhaps it’s simply not their journey to wake Continue reading »

  • It Depends on You

    It Depends on You   Over the last ten months or so, George Orwell’s novel “1984” has often been quoted and mentioned, as many people draw parallels between the bleak dystopian society he wrote about and the way our current society is heading. Whether you choose to believe there is some validity in that or Continue reading »

  • Where Are We Now?

    Where Are We Now? It doesn’t take a genius to realise that humanity is in a pickle. “Trapped” by a virus that the vast majority (99.6%) seem to survive and a confused government only offering what seem to be ineffective and restrictive solutions for moving forward with our lives, it’s difficult to see how our Continue reading »
