Love: The Only Religion

It’s no secret that I’ve always been slightly agnostic about religion. I don’t subscribe to indoctrination. I don’t feel inclined to perform rituals based on antiquated beliefs and I don’t actually indulge in conversations with people about religion because it becomes so highly contentious. Also, I have little respect for hypocrisy and the people who advocate what is “right” and…

Honouring The Divine Masculine

There’s an unspoken truth we’ve turned a blind eye to. Which I’m not prepared to remain quiet about any longer. I’ve personally witnessed the destruction this lie has amassed and I’ve seen many spirits break as a result.   The lie I refer to is the way in which we’ve been taught to regard men and the standard in which…

The Tenacity of the Human Spirit

A couple of months ago, a very special friend of mine got diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis – a potentially disabling disease that affects the brain and spinal cord. My friend is in her late 20’s and was relatively well until this diagnosis. When I heard about it, my immediate and instinctive reaction was grief and sorrow for what the future…

On Being True

Can we be true to ourselves even if that means failing another? That is a question that I have been plagued with. The more I choose to love myself and vote for myself first, the more complex it becomes for everyone else. This act of juggling and choosing to serve me or serve others leaves me exhausted, with a dire…

Living With Integrity

I’ve been mulling over the concept of integrity over the last few days. More than just HAVING it, how many of us actually LIVE with it?  I know for a fact that I like to think I do, but I don’t. Not consistently anyway. And it’s hard but necessary to tell that truth. Living with integrity means more to me…

Peace, Orlando and Soul Shifting

I am not a fan of propagating negative stories. I don’t subscribe to ‘anti’ this or that and have been fortunate enough to learn the importance of creating my own reality through words that I use. I have learnt that I create more chaos and more trauma when I perpetuate the belief that I need to be ‘anti’ something in…

A Single Girl’s Take on Valentine’s Day

I hate Valentine’s Day. I’ve always hated Valentine’s Day. I don’t consider myself to be a cynic but the whole commercialised idea of love being glorified on one day of the year doesn’t appeal to me. Plus I have residual issues stemming from being the only girl in school who never got to gloat at the thrill of having to…

Power of Vision

In recent weeks, I have been tried and tested in terms of staying true to the essence of who I am. I am peace and peace should follow me everywhere I go, however, I am manifesting great conflict into my life right now that leaves me wondering where the basis of that stems from. I have lived my life with…

Spiritual Enlightenment

The concept of spiritual enlightenment felt, for me, like new-age nonsense. I imagined people standing in a circle singing Kumbaya, holding hands under the moonlight. Religion equally, felt like an indoctrination of antiquated ritualistic behaviour that had no place in modern society. I didn’t want to subscribe to any of that. I wanted to be “evolved”, scientific and modern. Needless…
