It has been an Internet free zone round our place during August as our router faded out. At first I was fine about it and welcomed the change, then ... it just got too much.
I haven't blogged and felt very disconnected from webland. It has been mighty strange.
I started to look at things very differently. I began to step back into my own inner self. I began to read things I had written and looked at everything around me with a fresh pair of eyes.
I began to start writing my Healing eBook; which will be available for download by the End of September (did you read that Jules? You just put that goal right out there and now you have to follow it through!)
I had a melt down about not having children and it has opened up the floodgates. I'll share this with you soon.
Everything came back on 10 days ago and since then I have moved into my little studio space. I spent some time in there today and it was so incredibly peaceful, even with the humming of the extractor fan from the Turkish restaurant next door.
I felt serene and calm as I created and wrote.
It feels like I am entering a new focused phase.
I have a wonderful new BIG commission which is making me look at different ways of creating. I'll reveal more of this too.
All is good. All is well.
With that in mind, here's my latest write up of my Wisdom Card.
Please enjoy, sending much love to you
All is Well
Release the Negativity. Explore any resistance and relax in the knowledge that you are able to heal. You have the power. You can change the way you approach the situation you face.
Background to the card:
This card was inspired by Louise Hay, Author, Metaphysical Teacher and founder of Hay House. I was first introduced to her book You Can Heal Your Life almost 24 years ago when I was ill with M.E/CFS (myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome). It was passed to me when I was in the depths of ill health. I was just embarking on my ‘back to health plan’, using a variety of complementary approaches and healing methods and when I read this book I realised immediately that it was going to accompany me to find my own way back. I was transported into a metaphysical word that showed me I had the power. I wasn’t waiting for one solution. I was going to find many and use them all. I devoured the book and used Louise’s morning and evening meditations – they helped me to learn to meditate and create a practice, it gave me extra courage to heal myself.
The meaning behind the card:
If you picked this card today it is a reminder for you also that you can heal yourself. Whatever is going on, perhaps a persistent long-term health problem, you can become your own investigator and learn some simple healing ways. One of the lessons I learnt all those years ago was to tune out from negativity that is streamed from television, radio and even people in our lives. The first to go was late night news and radio. I realised I didn’t want to tap into this negative drip-feed. The world is not defined by bad news. My world had to be optimistic and encouraging. I had to see a way through this ill-health. I wasn’t opting out, I was becoming more focused and directed about healing myself. I tried everything you can name and settled on the therapies and practices that complemented my healing programme.
This card asks you to switch off from the negativity of your life. Let it go.
Don’t tap into the drip feed of negativity.
The symbolism and colour of this card is very important. The colour surrounding this beautiful woman is turquoise, once again representing the throat chakra and our communication centre, with the dragonfly placed here it signifies ‘Illusion’. According to Sams and Carson, ‘the veil of negativity that we accept as our reality, is in fact, incorrect. It may be time for you to break down the illusion you have held that restricts your actions or ideas. Dragon fly asks you to seek out parts of you that need to change.”
How to use this card:
This card asks of you to explore your resistance and relax in the knowledge that you are able to heal. You have the power. You can change the way you approach the situation you face. Follow the image and place one hand over your naval area and one hand over your heart. Close your eyes and breathe through you nose for 7 seconds, then hold this breath for 7. Exhale for a count of 7 through your mouth. Really let go. Then hold for another count of 7 and breathe in once again, counting 7 through the tips of your fingers.
Sit quietly, breathing in this way, for a round of 7. Feel the gentle white speckles of white sunshine trickling over you, like a gentle shower of light bubbles. Healing light bubbles, clearing negativity away from your body. Know that you can do this at any time during you day. Again and Again.
This card is a reminder to do just that.

I'm creating a set of 44 Wisdom Cards and Book - each card will be inspired by someone who has meant something to me, someone who has inspired me or taught me something. They could be people I know, or people I don't know, living or passed over. They may be people I have seen from afar. They may also be animals and elements from the planet around me. They may also be from dreamtime and with symbolism that I can’t recognise. What I know for sure is, it will all unfold. If you'd like to read more about this project, click here
