  • Nothing Has To Be Anything

    Nothing Has To Be Anything I have recently found myself slowly dismantling my internal belief system. Nothing earth-shattering, yet a steady change within that resulted in the world around me doing likewise. I ran a hypnotherapy course last week and found myself talking about beliefs more than I normally do, mentioning them as the foundation Continue reading »

  • Among the Many Common Questions

    Among the Many Common Questions Among the many common questions that people wonder about prior to having a regression are “if they can be regressed” and “how does it actually work”. I always think that questions like this are important to ask before we start Everybody can be regressed in theory – if I ask Continue reading »

  • Exploring a Past Life

    Exploring a Past Life One obvious consequence of exploring a past life is that you experience that you have lived before, and rather than just perhaps liking the theory, or having a sense of it to be true, you absolutely know it to be truth at some deep level, and you strengthen your Soul connection Continue reading »

  • Taking Control of You?

    Taking Control of You? “Living is Easy With Eyes Closed…Misunderstanding All You See” sang the Bard Lennon, and oh boy, was he right. Life is much easier when you are able to wander through it in carefree bliss. However, when your eyes are opened to a different reality, whether you choose to call that a Continue reading »

  • Kindness & Appreciation

    Kindness & Appreciation Whatever comes next is entirely up to you and whatever you choose to create. This is how our Quantum Reality works. There are a lot of people who are bemoaning the fuel, energy, food etc prices that are supporting the “cost of living” crisis, and aiding the speculation of what will happen Continue reading »

  • Soul Appreciation

    Soul Appreciation Life is a process where we interract with each others, we become involved in situations, we observe what is happening here or there, and more often than not we develop opinions (and likely some judgements) about those things. The personality is created from a series of building blocks (beliefs and expectations sitting in Continue reading »

  • Empowered Up? or Not?

    Empowered Up? or Not? When I think about it, much of the “work” that I do is about helping people to reclaim their power. Whether it’s as seemingly simple as helping someone to stop smoking (they gave away their power to a habit), or a seemingly more complicated scenario where they conquer a fear from Continue reading »

  • 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. Maybe, the journey to a truth that can be free of hatred, bias and injustice requires a journey of the soul to see Continue reading »

  • Trust Your Soul

    Trust Your Soul You have the knowledge of your entire multi-dimensional being at your fingertips, When you realise that you do, this enables you to solve the problems or meet the challenges for this play (life) that you have set for yourself that bit quicker, and it also opens further areas of creativity by which Continue reading »

  • 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 »

  • Forgiveness is Key?

    Forgiveness is Key We are in between eclipses (till 10th June) and it is an especially great time to clear out old energy that no longer serves you. Whether that’s the physical stuff that’s in your attic, your cupboards, your email inbox, your list of friends or your hard drive, just do it. The space Continue reading »
