  1. In 2015 I had a successful Crystal Shop and Therapy Room in my home town and a one day a week clinic at the Westlake Clinic, Harley St, London.  I was busy, super busy and I was taking on as much work as I could possibly do.  It was exhausting but fun and successful.  Then toward the end of the year I had a random rather silly accident that left me concussed.  The concussion was beautiful.  I could do nothing but rest and was unable to think about anything. 

    My mind felt a deep inner peace something I had always striven for but was never able to get close to achieving in the busy and complex 3D reality I had to be a part of for my survival on this illusionary planet.  But now I knew nothing but peace, deep peace in my mind and thorough relaxation.  I have since spoken to other people who have had concussion and many describe a similar experience. 

    After the initial down time, I found that if I thought about anything, even simple things like to groceries I needed, shooting pains would go through my head until I had to stop the thoughts.  It was like a form of aversion therapy.  You will not think about a thing or you will get pain.   The pain was worse if I worried.  It retrained my mind.  It wasn’t until late February / March time that thoughts and worries started to come back into my mind and it was awful when they did.  Worrying was something I did not want to happen.  I had loved the experience of being in the flow of life, just going about my business without fear or attachment to the outcome.  But the pain was subsiding and so negativity could slip in.  Now I had to take responsibility for keeping my thoughts extremely positive and happy, whilst staying grounded and practical here on the planet.

    Just at the time when I felt the pain had gone on too long and it was time to seek further medical advice Pauline McTimmony came into my shop and we spent quite some time together.  She said she was thinking of writing a book about her father’s life and chiropractic work.  She also explained about the concussion and the rewiring of the brain.  She told me that Edgar Cayce had a similar experience which lit me up.  All through the healing process I had felt that it was an incident in my life that was meant to be and would be for my highest and best good.  So it was wonderful to get a little understanding of the restructuring that had gone on and the new worriless life I was leading.

    I have always believed that your thoughts create your reality and worry was pointless.  So, if your thoughts create your reality then you will get your expected outcome and your thoughts are like prayers which will be answered.  I am fearful that X will happen and so it does etc.  Whatever you give energy to expands.  The shooting pains slowly lessened over a 5month period until they completely subsided and I had learnt not to worry about a thing, that it was best to get out of my own way and allow the universe to take me where I needed to be.

    In June and July I began writing a book which I am in the process of completing.  It is a simple novel that explores narcissistic behaviour and how energy healing and positive thoughts can help overcome mental and emotional abuse.  The sort of thing you might read by the pool on holiday or cosied up at home on a long winter evening but, hopefully, it also opens the mind to other aspects of life, healing, some of the possibilities out there and the importance of finding and being the real, authentic you.

    Then suddenly in August, as soon as I had said all I needed to say in my book, I took the decision to move to Glastonbury.  I needed my own soul’s growth.  Opportunities here immediately opened up for me and without worry or further thought I created this new reality for myself. 

    Yes letting go of my beloved shop, that I had built up from scratch and felt more like a cosy front room than a place of work, was hard but I felt excitement inside of me when I thought of Glastonbury.  I could feel my soul was excited to come here and think the experiences I will now have will further match the growth my soul seeks.  I also decided to release almost all of my possessions.  I had a deep inner knowing that I would no longer need them.  What I hadn’t realised was the incredible sense of freedom this would give me.  I know understand how bogged down and burdened I had become as the taking care of material items had limited my options in life.

    A month here now in the high vibration and I have gone through the initial exhaustion of having landed after such a rapid and physical time of packing up and selling off everything.  I have met so many amazing people and had some of the conversations my soul craved.  It has been a round of dinners and lunches and learning to relax, laugh and feel safe in a totally new environment.  I have taken to saying 'I don't know' to everyone.  It's a fabulous phrase that really opens me up to learning. Everyone is then free to express their interpretations of life the universe and everything and I get a more eclectic view on the world. I loved The Dolmen at the Faery Ball and have had visits from old friends. 

    So now to work, Oh yes my heart and soul need to work to feel fulfilled.  I will be back practicing next month, November 2016.

    Just a few links to show off my new home town

  2. Well I don't know how everyone is feeling but for me this Mercury retrograde is a big one.  With Mercury in four of my houses and four other planets retrograde it most certainly has been an interesting time.

    On average Mercury goes retrograde about 7 times every two years for a period of roughly 3 - 4 weeks.  When a planet goes retrograde it looks as though it is going backward in the sky and this period of reversal is known as a retrograde.  Because the planets, including us here on Earth, go around the sun in an ellipse rather than a circle an optical illusion of reverse direction occurs periodically with all planets.

    Both Gemini and Virgo astrological signs are governed by Mercury. People with their Sun, Moon or Ascendant in either Gemini or Virgo will be more affected by a Mercury retrograde though it does affect the community as a whole.

    In general when Mercury is going retrograde it is not a good time to sign contracts, purchase anything mechanical or electrical as when Mercury goes direct you may not be so thrilled with the commitments or purchases you have made.  Communications can also break down so double check any travel plans. Computers, phones, mechanical and electrical items can breakdown too and be difficult or just more frustrating to sort out during these periods.  But it is a good time revaluate, reassess, review, research and revise any plans, projects or internal work that you may have going on.

    At the beginning of the current Mercury retrograde cycle my phone reset itself to factory settings and I lost all my old contact details.  This could have been distressing but I decided to see it as a shedding of the old.  It felt freeing to let go of my past - everything is in our perception.

    During this Mercury retrograde cycle my computer contracted a virus which is being sorted by a slightly OCD Gemini computer expert friend who is continually repairing and resolving more and more problems on it daily. It is frustrating but will be resolved by the time Mercury moves into forward motion on the 22nd of May and a new more efficient phase can begin.  Basically he is going deeper and deeper into the computer and resolving more hidden problems.  Mercury retrograde is a time to go deep to repair, to reassess and revaluate the structures of our lives.  A little like the depths of my computer are being repaired and restored so we can make these internal changes during a Mercury retrograde.

    Communication on all levels is affected thus the phone and computer problems.  Also the ability to misinterpret what someone is saying  and misunderstand their meaning or intention is heightened.

    It is a poor time to embark on a new venture or business.  Instead take this time to really look at and assess any projects you may want to begin.  It is a time to really evaluate the pros and cons and do research into your ideas so that when Mercury is fully direct again you are armed with all the information you need and can move ahead confidently.

    Beware of the bookend dates too. These are the days when a planet actually becomes stationary in the sky and then begins to travel in the opposite direct as the energies can be heightened on these days.

    It is also wise to respect the shadow period before and after a retrograde as we can still feel the effects of the retrograde during this time.  The pre shadow time is when the planet begins to slow down in anticipation of changing direction. The post shadow time is when it moves forward again and slowly gains speed until it is back to its normal movement.

    This year is a biggy with Mercury going retrograde 4 times.  It has already been retrograde from 5.1.16 - 25.1.16 with the shadow period extending its effects from 19.12.16 - 14.2.16.  Take a look back over this time and see if you experienced any delays or setbacks.  I do think a good way to evaluate the validity of astrology is to watch the patterns of you life in respect to the movement of the stars and see for your self.

    It is currently retrograde from 28.4.16 - 22.5.16 with the shadow periods running from 14.4.16 - 7.6.16 and I am fully in the effects of its backward movement right now.  How are you doing?

    It will go retrograde again on 30-8-16 - 22.9.16 with the shadow periods from 10.8.16 - 6.10.16 so take a look ahead at this one and structure life to accommodate the issues Mercury retrograde will create for smooth running during this time.

    And again it will retrograde on the 19.12.16 - 8.1.17 with shadow periods running from 1.12.16 - 22.1.17.  Get your Christmas shopping in early especially if you are buying electrical items and plan for delays in communications and travel over the holiday period.  It's a great feeling to just say 'oh it's the planets' when anything is delayed or goes wrong rather than taking it personally.

    I am not an astrologer I just have a huge interest in it and think it is a fun and helpful way to take advantage of the highs and survive the lows in life.

    Good luck with it all x
