There is no place like home…

Hello Dear Ones

October, the Spookiest month has arrived and bringing with it chilly winds and rain.

In some ways this is a pivotal month with a powerful focus on transformation which is impossible to avoid.  As the temperatures start to drop and we watch the leaves flutter to the ground, we are reminded that natures cycles are mirrored in our lives. The only constant is change.  Autumn is a time for letting go of what no longer serves us, so we can make room and space for something new.

Why not go outside and gather some colourful autumn leaves, place them in a bowl as a symbol of what you would like to shed in your life and what you would like to seed deep within you for rebirth and renewal in the spring.

It is believed that the veil between the realms of the living and those who have passed on, is at its thinnest this month and spirit activity is more prevalent now than any other time of the year.  So, it is with this in mind that my thoughts turn towards celebrating my ancestors. Think Dia De Los Muertos. When we connect with our ancestors, we bring a sense of connection and belonging to our lives. We also begin to learn more about ourselves and have a greater appreciation for our families and lives (no matter the family situation). Our connection with our ancestors can bring in more self-love and greater compassion for ourselves and others.

Equally, Samhuin is also a wonderful time to cleanse your energy with light and the feeling of love. Try a salt bath or a cleansing meditation to keep your energy clear and connected. 

It's been a helluva ride over the past year and a half.  There have been a lot of learnings that have filtered in, many of us have faced various challenges and may still be feeling a bit tender.  As we move deeper into the season of Autumn, feel into the seasons invitation to retreat in doors and turn your focus inwards and begin to nurture an inner discovery of who you are and what lights you up.

We are all on a journey of coming home to ourselves, remember that what you search for is within you!

Wishing you all a blessed Witchober and may you hear the whispers of your ancestors as they guide you on the next part of your journey!

Awaken your Inner Witch (Begins 16 January 2022 )  3 Spaces left

This magical icon holds deep feminine power and wisdom!  Women can work with this archetype to reclaim their innate power and sovereignty.

Join Belinda and Fionn for our 3 part workshop where we will explore our own source of electrical magic and awaken our inner witch!

October. I am excited about October. There is a lot happening for me this month, a few new experiences, people I have not seen in a while and a trip to Arran. You will hear more about this one later. But with all of this excitement I am also reminded that there are still problems in the world and there are a few of these close to me. I can’t solve any of these problems, but what I can do is hold space for the people involved and this is what I want to talk to you about this month. Have you ever read Fish? It is a business book, a story about the fish market in Seattle and someone at the market that developed a rapport with his clients, put on a show and the people flock there. For me that is holding space. 

In circle, holding space is when we allow people to talk uninterrupted, allowing them just to be, tears and silences included. They get our full attention, no fiddling, looking away at something else, no checking phones or making a note. Nothing, just listening to the person speaking, looking at them. No trying to offer advice, no trying to console. Just letting them be. It is not easy to let someone cry, we want to make them feel better, but actually the best thing we can do is allow them to say and do what they want to do, they don’t get that opportunity anywhere else. There is always someone that knows how to solve the problem. Sometimes we don’t need that, we just want to speak. (please remember if someone says they need a cuddle then that is ok, cuddles help)

So, if we can do that in circle we can do that in our daily lives. So, my message to you this month is listen to people, listen to what they are saying and listen to what they are not saying, give them your full attention. I am not good at that, but that is my mission this month, just to listen and give people my full attention. 

By the time you read this our first Goddess workshop will be behind us. We have a full course this time. We keep them small, but it will be nice to have 6 sisters explore these archetypes with us this autumn. 

Enjoy the spooky season and remember to listen.

With lots of love



Following your intuition can lead you on some of the most intriguing adventures.

A couple of months ago I got the nudge to go to Arran.  I have never been before, and the nudge came out of no-where while sitting on the Ferry to Bute.  So, off we went.  At first it did not seem like the trip would happen… but when there is a will there is a way.

Little did I know at the time what an amazing adventure would unfold.  The weekend was infused the magic of circles, from driving around the island, to stone circles, completion cards and chatting to a lady who I swear I had met before (and she had no recollection of me what soever!) about Sister Circles and healing the land.

Our Arran adventure, included a beautiful circular walk along the South of the island and as we walked, we indulged in the abundance of ripe brambles, delighting in their tart yumminess. I also found myself enjoying the salty sea wind in my wild locks, which left me feeling refreshed and revitalised.

Everywhere we looked there were swans, even when we were stargazing into the endless twinkly night sky, we found the Cygnus constellation.   Swans represent transformation and are a symbol of light…. What an auspicious beacon of confirmation that I was right where I was supposed to be and that one part of my journey had ended, with the next about to begin.

My heart is pulling me back to Arran and I really feel that this is the location for our 'Re-ignite your Light' retreat next year.... so Belinda and I are off on our own adventure to Arran this month.  Looking forward to sharing our adventure with you.  If you haven’t signed up for our retreat yet, here is the link

My aim for the coming months is to learn to listen to my intuition more, to trust it, give it a voice and let it lead me to the right path.

We have just started our Goddess Workshops and what an absolute honour to be leading these workshops again with our magical Goddesses, I can’t wait to see how this journey unfolds.

I am also just about to finish up on my Reiki 1 manual and I can't wait to host my first training session!  I still have one more space left:  Reiki 1:  Are you ready to awaken the light within?

I have alot going on this month and whilst these activities seem to be outward facing, these activities are igniting my personal inner revolution!  Viva la revolucion!

Wishing you all a Spookily Good October!  

Love and Blessings

The Owls Witchy Tip

There is so much to do on our altar this month. And if you don’t already have one, this is a great excuse to start one and then forget to get rid of it.

Mine will have seeds and seed heads of all types, obviously a candle or two, a small pumpkin, maybe some dried flowers. Samhain is also the time we remember our dead, so my altar will have reminders of them and perhaps a small offering to them. 

Make it as simple or as elaborate as you wish.

The Wolfs Wild Tip

This dimension that we live in and the spirit world meet in October. This is the time when the veil that separates us is at its thinnest.

This is a time to honour our ancestors who have passed.  Light a candle and take some time to recall them into your heart and honour their memory and their place on your family tree.

Watch THE BOOK OF LIFE it’s a beautiful movie which encourages us to celebrate the past while looking forward to the future. It is a wonderful story about following your heart.

Tarot Card of the Month

No Place Like Home – Wisdom of the Oracle


We are all just walking each other home - Ram Das.

A beautiful card for the month ahead.  Home feels safe and secure, it's a comfortable place to rest and create a place you call your own.   There is simply no other place like it.

Are you ready for a new chapter…?


iSpeech

Hello Dear Ones

Throughout August we have enjoyed the last of an intoxicating and heady summer in the UK.  Now we say goodbye to the wildness of summer days and welcome in the changing of the season as we descend into the darker months and open our arms to Autumn comforts of pumpkins and cinnamon!

Each month of the year has a lesson to teach us and an opportunity for reflection and growth.

September is a time of transition and change.  A time for self-reflection, gratitude and forgiveness.  September offers an opportunity to let go of the past year, to move forward and embrace the coming year, hopefully with some new learning and resolve.  It is important to manage these in-between times and change mindfully.

I have been sensing change on the horizon and feel ready to start a new chapter, however, the future is still unclear… after speaking to a couple of people this week, it seems they are feeling this same restlessness and need for something new.

So, when I received the Newsletter from the School of Shamanism earlier today, Lena’s forecast resonated.  She talks about the main theme for September being Time for a New Story and suggests the best approach to creating our new story is to ask questions that will open up our internal dialogue:

  • What do you fear?
  • What truly makes you happy?
  • What are the addictions you desire to change?
  • What part of your current story are you truly done with?
  • What are you not ready or willing to let go of?
  • What are you ready and willing to let go of?
  • What are your past unrealized dreams that are no longer viable?
  • What is your truth?

The first step in creating a new story is to let go of the old one without anger or judgment. The discomfort and irritation we feel in life, comes from resisting the responsibility of our own change. Only you can create a new story for yourself.

Let your heart lead the way... It will never lead you astray.

As the seasons change, so do we.  May we be aware we are shifting just like the wind.

Keep your vibration high this month, stay present, practice compassion and most of all cultivate appreciation for all of life in supporting your new story!


Important Reminders!


Goddess Archetype Workshops:  Belinda and I have started our preparations for the Goddess Workshops in October.  We have 1 space left if you would like to join us.  There are payments plans available - just pop me an email to discuss.

Whats New?


Goddess Archetype Workshop (Begins, Sunday, 3 October 2021)

The time is now…to reclaim your deepest and wildest self!  (There is 1 space left!)

Awakening the Goddess within, is every woman’s birth right.  It’s a journey of love, that will lead you to your heart and your deepest authenticity.  The triple goddess captures the essence of life birth, growth, and death/transformation, and eventual renewal, symbolising the divine dance throughout the universe.  By awakening the pure power and innate wisdom of these archetypes/goddesses within you, you will realise your power and wisdom has been within you all along and that your inner goddess has been waiting for you to take the first step in igniting her wisdom.

Join Belinda and Fionn for a 6-Part Workshop where we will be exploring The Maiden, The Mother, The Wild Woman and the Crone as a portal into self, to reclaim our divine feminine power. The workshop will be hosted online via zoom.

Who would have guessed, it is time for the newsletter again.

August has been a good month. I knew it would bring change; however, subtle and it did not disappoint. Those of you that follow us on social media will know that I have been on a spirit doll making course. I knew how to needle felt before I started, but the course has still taught me new techniques and given me the opportunity to practice my skills. 

More importantly it allowed for time to reflect on various aspects of my spirituality and to dig a little deeper into some shadow work. One Tuesday morning at 1am, with a candle, a glass of water and a blanket drawn over my face I discovered, that while Inanna invites you to shed your treasures at each gate you pass, the Cailleach does not have time to ask, she just rips everything off and leaves you with what is important within minutes. 

The lessons learnt during the Goddess Workshops also started making sense this month and has added to the transformative nature of the month. I am not only seeing a change in my personal life, but also a huge shift at work. 

And the last thing I want to say about August is we finished the spellcrafting workshops. We had great fun. We spoke about a huge range of things from Hitler to sacred sex. If you were not there you have missed out. 

It has been a gentle month, with all the messages coming through softly and at a constant pace. And I am happy to be alive.

With lots of love



August reminds me of savouring the last drops of a fine red wine.   Enjoying the last of the delicious warm days as we descend into the longer evenings.

August  felt quick in linear time and on an energetic level it felt expansive and long.  My month kicked off with attending Reiki Master Training as part of Teacher Training.  It was so good to be in sacred space with fellow sisters learning and growing together.  It was a powerful weekend, as Lionsgate and the Leo New Moon coincided with our training.  A beautiful and potent portal that activated heart healing and an expansion of spiritual wisdom to help us awaken to our truest potential, lead from the heart and birth a new world.

During the month, I welcomed back the Wild Woman and I continued my journey with Sekhmet.  It was an amazing check in to see how far I had come in letting go of past programming and to look ahead to the future and begin planning the next phase of my adventure, which includes writing more (and launch my podcast).

The past couple of weeks my fingers have been flying across the keyboard and I finally finished a piece I had started on the Little Mermaid.  My relfection is that that the Disney version of this story has entrapped women into believing that we need a hero to save us and to be dependent on the love of another.  Women have given up a lot of their innate magic to suit the patriarchal narrative, to fit a script that tells us we are not good enough, that we need to look a certain way and more specifically we need to take on attributes of the masculine to make it in this world.  We are all being called recognise our worth and we step into our wholeness by following our hearts and rejecting the perverted version of what society has told us we want….  I’d love to heart your thoughts.

Belinda and I are in the process of getting ready for our Goddess Archetype Workshops.  It’s been an absolutely joy to bring these workshops to life again this year and as we move towards the first workshop, keep an eye out for my video ands lives.

I am super excited to be off to Arran this weekend for a much needed break! 

Have a beautiful September!  Stay present and appreciate the now!

Love and Blessings

The Owls Witchy Tip

With so much going on in the world at the moment I got good at emergency protection spells this month. A very simple white light visualisation where I cast a protective shield around the people/place I wanted to protect while making a little charm bag with basil and cumin to which I added tourmaline. I could not gift this bag physically, so I asked that they virtually accept the gift and place it at their front door for protection. I planted the charm bag at my front door together with some lettuce. The lettuce is growing wonderfully while the protection is working. 

The Wolfs Wild Tip

Re-Wilding Tips for the month of September

Go fly a kite - Make use of the still light evenings and head to the park and fly a kite.

Blackberry picking - Head on out and pick blackberries and make something delicious with your foraged fruits.

Catch falling leaves – Get outdoors into the garden or visit the local park or woodland and catch the leaves as they fall from the trees. And for every leaf you catch make a wish.

Have a bonfire - Have a mini bonfire in the garden or sit outside around the wood burner, take out some hot chocolate and toast marshmallows in the flames.

Make autumn apple drinks - Simmer up a pan of warming, gently spiced apple drinks. Infuse the apple juice with citrus peel and cinnamon.

Make toffee apples - Nothing says autumn quite like deliciously red toffee apples.

Get outdoors for a walk – Get out and about an autumn nature trail, look out for conkers, acorns, beech nuts, pinecones, beautiful autumn-coloured leaves and autumn wildlife. Maybe take a picnic or flasks of hot chocolate and some brownies.

Climb a hill and watch the sunset – It just feels so good to do this and best of all, it’s free!

Star gazing - If you’ve got a telescope then get out into the garden and spend time looking at the stars or catching a glimpse of a planet.

Tarot Card of the Month

The Five of Wands – Everyday Witch Tarot

This card encourages an enthusiastic approach to change.  Transformation is coming, whether you like it or not.  Seems like an apt card for tthe month of September.
 
We will all be experiencing growing pains this month and at times it may feel uncomfortable. The challenge is to remember we are all in this together and everyone is under the same influence to grow and change. You are not alone.

I also felt like this card speaks to those who are lightworkers.  Now is your time to come forward. Even if you are uncertain.  The world needs you.  Come forward and lend your gifts for the greater good… we are in a period of great change!

Wishing you a beautiful September

21 Day Cacao Challenge – Becoming a Cacao Tree (Day 21)


iSpeech

The intention for this journey was to alchemise stress and anxiety into peace and harmony.  Whilst this challenge has come to an end, the journey never ends.  Cacao is a wonderful facilitator and guide to transformation.

Today’s ritual is to become a Cacao Tree. We are all unique and we need our own perfect conditions to flourish, and we need to recognise the conditions in which we thrive, so that we can find our peace and harmony.

We were invited to get creative after we had consumed our Cacao.  Every part of the Cacao Tree represents a part of us and we were invited to journal against the following points:

  • The Roots represent Who You Are.
  • The Trunk represents your Sense of Self.
  • The Branches represent your Creativity.
  • The Leaves represent your Blessings.
  • The Cacao Superfruit represents your Emotional and Mental Wellbeing.

We can only grow strong if we are deeply root in Mother Earth, know that we are an intrinsic part of the web of life.

Rebekah, reminded us that trees take years to grow, which is a lovely reminder for us to be patient with our process. 


What a beautiful practice to end our 21-day Cacao journey together.

A tree has roots in the soil yet reaches the sky.  It tells us that in order to aspire we need to be grounded and that no matter how high we grow, it is from our roots that we draw sustenance.

Wangari Maathai

21 Day Cacao Challenge – My thoughts so far… (Day 20)


Text to Speech Voices

As I said at the beginning of this journey, this challenge was soooo much more than just drinking Cacao.  Each day, taking time to slow down to and connect with myself ahead of the day’s agenda, has brought more harmony to my day. I have felt more deeply attuned to myself, more energetic and mentally alert.  Opening my heart to the wisdom of Cacao has been transformational, it felt like a nurturing grandmothers hug.

Opening the door to her transformational magic has not only had a softening affect in my daily life, but a physical impact as well… I have had more stamina to get through the day, I feel physically stronger, and more mentally alert.

By understanding her history as a powerful plant medicine, a spiritual gatekeeper and loving facilitator, who is making a resurgence after being undercover as a candy for 150 years, I can now truly appreciate what the Mesoamericans understood this plant medicine to be, even without our advanced ideas. 

I feel like I am blooming, and it’s a beautiful space to be in.

Transformation is a journey, without a final destination.

Marilyn Fergusson

#incacaowetrust

Daily Intention:

To ground myself

What am I Grateful for today?

Amazing Friendships!

One thing today that made me feel ‘I Love my life’:

Enjoying watching a sunset with a wonderful friend.

How did I follow my intuition today (with what results?)

Going to the beach, to spend time in a space that would bring grounded and appreciation for mother earth.

What Physical Changes are taking place?

Skin is glowing and more supple.

Daily check in questions:

What difference did this Challenge Make to my day?

It brought me back to a grounded place.

How is this challenge helping me achieve my goals?

I have become more in tune with the energies and cycles of the moon and am practicing keeping myself grounded when we head into the full moon vibes.

How is this challenge impacting my relationships with nature, myself, and other relationships?

I am more aware than ever of when I need mother nature’s healing and nurturing, which means I make time for this connection.

21 Day Cacao Challenge – Going with the Flow (Day 19)


Text to Speech Demo

It’s sad to say that I am nearing the end of this expansive journey with Cacao; however, it does not mean that the journey ends.  The journey never ends, the adventure of growth and following my heart continues.

What does it mean to go with the flow…?

Going with the flow is not a passive response to what is happening around us.  When we go with the flow it means that we act from a space of authenticity and that we honour our own personal rhythms as well as the rhythm of the natural world. 

I like how Rebekah describes this in her email:  An apple tree doesn’t cry in December because it can’t produce fruit, it automatically trusts nature and waits patiently for the right time.

Instead of push, push, pushing, we instinctively know when it’s time to slow down and have patience.

When we want something to happen in a specific way, by a certain time, we can find ourselves disappointed by these kinds of expectations are not met.  Life then becomes difficult resulting in stress and anxiety

I also think there is a bit of confusion about what going with the flow means, so for me there is:

Going with the flow and there is ‘Going with the FLOW’

When we go with the flow, we tend to make decisions to keep life comfortable and avoid conflict, by not rocking the boat.  This is often associated with conflict avoidance.

We may not be consciously aware that we are outwardly focussed on other people’s needs and expectations, or that we have lost touch with our own needs.  Which really means that we are probably flowing in someone else’s river or a few different rivers and allowing other people’s agendas to dictate our flow.

When we go with the flow, this really means we are not taking responsibility for our own lives or getting clear on what we want or need.  We are bystanders, because we have bought into the idea that we are meant to go with the flow.

Growing up in a Cult Organisation, I spent the better part of half my life dancing to someone else’s tune.  Like a little puppet dancing to everyone else’s expectation of me, resulting in people pleasing behaviours and supressed anger, the discord with in me was immense.  When I discovered a beat that resonated with my heart and started to dance to my own tune, it was so addictive, I wanted more.   This is when I hit the rapids of family upset and discontent.  It didn’t stop me following the call of my heart…

When you dance to the rhythm of your own beat…. Magic happens!

You read more about my story here

When we Go with the FLOW, we surrender to the ebb and flow of not only our personal cycles, but that of nature and we synchronise with the natural intelligence and FLOW of the universe.

We set our intentions and let life guide us to where we want to go. Going with the FLOW helps us to become intimately aware of who we are at our very core, enabling us to listen to our soul messages and honour what we hear.

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them – that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.” 

Lao Tzu

#incacaowetrust

Today's Ritual… This 21-day ritual challenge started in the knowledge that it takes 21 days to break a habit.  During this time, I have forged a deep and profound relationship with Cacao and let go of what no longer serves and a deeper habit of Going with the FLOW has formed.

The more that I lean into Going with the FLOW and trusting that the universe has my back and that everything happens in divine timing, brings me a feeling of contentment. 

When we begin to trust that life is unfolding as it should, we can relax and start to see miracles begin to happen.

As part of your daily spiritual practice begin asking: What is my heart’s desire? What inspired action arising from my soul am I meant to take today?

Share a comment below… I would love to hear from you!

Daily Intention: 

To GO with the FLOW.

What am I Grateful for today?

The gift of life.

One thing today that made me feel ‘I Love my life’:

Being able to support people with deeper healing.

How did I follow my intuition today (with what results?)

By responding to an immediate thought, and the person very much needing what I had message them.

What Physical Changes are taking place?

I am feeling strong.

Daily check in questions:

What difference did this Challenge Make to my day?

I feel like I am blooming.

How is this challenge helping me achieve my goals?

With my newfound confidence I have been feeling of late, I am feeling more inclined to share my voice and have been creating recorded content as well as going live on socials.

How is this challenge impacting my relationships with nature, myself and other relationships?

I also hear myself speaking about my passions with more confidence.  I can feel my own change of vibration, which has had a profound effect on me in the knowledge that I am an intrinsic part of the Universe.

21 Day Cacao Challenge – Partipation (Day 18)


iSpeech

Rebekah designed this challenge so that we could work with the Cacao spirit to push us out of our comfort zones and set sale towards our dreams.

Many of us seem to mosey on through life, believing our truest desires are just distant dreams. 

We tend to endure the Work, Eat, Sleep repeat, routine and find ourselves walking around functioning from our neck up and not participating in what life has to offer.

Showing up for your life means actively participating in our own life rather than hiding and going through the motions.

When we show up and start participating in life, we begin to feel inspired to take action to bring our dreams to life.

Once we align with our true purpose, we begin to feel a profound sense of peace.  When we aligned without purpose, it gives us an opportunity to appreciate the choices, challenges and even the hardships we have experienced, because this is what shaped you into who you are today.

Living in alignment with our purpose means that we are vibrating at a frequency that matches that of your soul's intention and the universe reflects that right back at us, amplifying our manifestation powers!

What we think, and what comes back at us, is always a vibrational match.

When we are living in alignment with our purpose and we have a clear vision of what we want to create, life seems to just flow, and things fall into place.

You feel free to be you and your authentic simply shines!

"Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you." 

Marianne Williamson

Today's Ritual, is to write down everything I am fearful of and to be honest about those fears that stopping me from living my dreams.  Then we close our journals and take some deep breaths and tune into the spirit of Cacao for guidance and support and ask her if our fears are rational and write down our any guidance received in our journals

FEAR = False Expectations Appearing Real

Let’s not let our fears get in the way of living our dream.  Rebekah encourages us to use the powerful medicine of Cacao to challenge and push us beyond fear.

Life is meant to be lived NOW.

All we need to do is participate in the adventure.

What are you waiting for!

Daily Intention:

To go with the FLOW.

What am I Grateful for today?

My resilience – how quickly I bounce back these days.

One thing today that made me feel ‘I Love my life’:

Being able to look back on the past year, two years, even the past decade and see my personal expansion and growth – I am excited to see what the next year brings.

How did I follow my intuition today (with what results?)

Learning to quiet the mind and the inner dialogue can be hard, but when we let go, slow down and follow our intuition – that’s where the magic is.  Having your head full of stuff, can cause a disturbance in the force… so I listened and took a nap!

What Physical Changes are taking place?

My physical and mental stamina is growing daily.

Daily check in questions:

What difference did this Challenge Make to my day?

I feel more and more resilient, and I feel myself detaching more and more for the external dramas.

How is this challenge helping me achieve my goals?

The more I give myself space to connect with myself, my intentions, and goals… the more I am attracting the right people into my life, to move my goals and passions forward.  I am glowing.

How is this challenge impacting my relationships with nature, myself, and other relationships?

Still slowing down and learning to listen not only with my ears but my heart has been soul expansive, and my relationships are being affected positively.

21 Day Cacao Challenge – A New Vision (Day 17)


https://www.ispeech.org

Today we were invited to create a vision board and start focusing our attention on what we want to manifest after the 21-day challenge.

The idea is to keep what we want to manifest clear and simple. The intention is not to just focus on tangible, physical things, but our internal wealth as well.

What we focus on expands, so setting an intention activates receptivity.

So what is a vision board anyway and why make one…

A vision board is a creative process, using visual imagery, that clearly defines our intentions for what we want to create in our life, so we can grow and transform.

Visualisation is one of the most powerful mind exercises we can do, because we are emitting a powerful frequency out into the universe. 

By creating a sacred space that displays what we want to manifest, not only does it bring this to life visually, but we are giving a clear message to the universe.

There are timelines on a vision board, so we do need to be patient and trust.  When we are vibrating in alignment with our intentions… our manifesting abilities are on hyperdrive!

The idea is to create a ritual and spend some quiet time tuning into cacao and listening to our intuition and getting clear on what we want to create.

Then get creative and allow the spirit of Cacao to lead the way, giving space for random desires that pop up.  Then all we need to do is find an image that resonates with the idea and paste it to our vision boards.

Hold the Vision Trust the Process!

What is needed to create a vision board…

  • Magazines
  • Newspapers
  • Catalogues
  • Postcards

You are looking for words, images, or colours that resonate with you.

  • Cardboard (A3 or 11x17, but really the bigger the better!)
  • Scissors
  • Glue

If you fancy getting very creative, here are some other ideas:

  • Stickers
  • Wrapping Paper
  • Fabric
  • Markers, crayons, pastels
  • fabric or ribbons
  • maybe stickers, gems, or sequins!

The idea is not to create a vision board and put it under the bed.  No, it’s what you want to create, so it deserves a special place, where you can see it on a daily basis.  Place it where it is visible, in your office, studio or even next to your bed.  How about making it your screen saver!

#incacaowetrust

Daily Intention:

To have fun!

What am I Grateful for today?

Lunch times!  I was able to spend time making my vision board!

One thing today that made me feel ‘I Love my life’:

Today, it feels like everything I have been working towards is coming together.

How did I follow my intuition today (with what results?)

I am learning to listen to what my body when it comes to food, which is helping with energy and clarity of mind.

What Physical Changes are taking place?

Each day I feel more expansive, and my stamina is returning.

Daily check in questions:

What difference did this Challenge Make to my day?

Life feels so much easier, when we allow ourselves to flow and not get caught up when things don’t go our way – this too shall pass.

How is this challenge helping me achieve my goals?

I keep doing the work, even though I don’t necessarily see the immediate results, I don’t give up, know that my vibrations are rippling out into the universe and my hard work will pay off.

How is this challenge impacting my relationships with nature, myself, and other relationships?

I feel myself daily slowing down and often taking my time to respond, ensure that my response is from my heart.

21 Day Cacao Challenge – Communicating with Plants (Day 16)


https://www.ispeech.org/text.to.speech

The last two weeks I have been deepening my relationship with the Spirit of Cacao and she has supported me through my personal inner alchemy of transforming aspects of myself into truth and love.

How to communicate with Plants…


Plant Spirits carry codes and healing properties.  This week’s practice is to tune into our surroundings, to the tree outside your house to going outside in nature and practicing deep listening.  We can only hear what nature has to say when we have silenced our mind.  This week the invitation is to use Cacao to find our inner silence so we can tune in and decipher Mother Earths messages.

Shaman Durek in his book Spirit Hacking, gives some great hints and tips on how to log into nature.  He believes that Nature is a powerful teacher and a powerful ally.  Most people have no idea how much wisdom or knowledge, power and healing nature has to share with us because most people are so busy logging into their smart phones and social media feeds.

Logging into nature activates our connection with the nature spirits and opens up the communication channel. 

Today’s ritual is to communicate with plants… after drinking our cacao, I headed out for a walk and found a tree that is vibrant and colourful, one that stood out for me, this is how plants call to you, by glowing at you.

We were invited to approach the plant with kindness and sit next to it, to observe the plant, it’s smell and patterns.  To silence the mind and tune into the plant and to become aware of what we are experiencing and if there are any messages from the plant. And to write our experience down in our journal.

My experiences:

One of the things I have noticed during this challenge, is that my plants are flourishing, and the animals and birds are more active in my garden.  The Squirrels have been intent on trying to communicate with me too… coming right up to the window and sometimes licking the windows!  Epic little creatures! 

The more we tune into nature, the more the birds and animals will see us as nature.

We are part of the Earth, and it is part of us.

Native American Quote

#incacaowetrust

Daily Intention:

To connect with nature and hear their messages.

What am I Grateful for today?

The sweet taste of an apple.

One thing today that made me feel ‘I Love my life’:

The joy of being able to watch a baby squirrel attempt to climb a pole, where I have hung fat balls for the wild birds.  He didn’t stop trying and each time he got a bit closer to the delicious cargo… never give up was the message I took from this little guy today.

How did I follow my intuition today (with what results?)

Today I felt like drawn to doing a Womb Clearing Ceremony, by Lisa Bardell.  Afterwards I felt uplifted and less cranky!

What Physical Changes are taking place?

Each day I have more resilience and mental clarity.

Daily check in questions:

What difference did this Challenge Make to my day?

I feel more resilient and more in tune with myself.

How is this challenge helping me achieve my goals?

I am becoming clearer on where I waste time and becoming clearer on where to put the effort in.

How is this challenge impacting my relationships with nature, myself, and other relationships?

Listening, I am listening to myself more and responding to my own personal needs.

21 Day Cacao Challenge – Welcome to Week 3 (Day 15)


Text to Speech

Over the last two weeks I have really been enjoying connecting with Cacao and learning more about her history, which has deepened my connection to this Master Plant Medicine.  The Journey has given me so much more self-awareness, not only physically, but mentally, spiritually, and emotionally.  Cacao is definitely not woowoo, as they say the proof is in the pudding, in this case the proof is in drinking the Cacao.

In the final week, we will be working more shamanically with this Plant Medicine and we will do this by focussing our attention outwarded and taking what have learnt in the last two weeks and putting it into practical action.

Cacao holds a lot of nutrients as we have already learnt in my previous blogs, but they also hold a lot of codes and keys to who we really are.

What is Plant Medicine Shamanism…

In our current way of living, we are disconnected from nature and the healing energy she provides.  Disease and disfunction has energetic origins and traditional healers believe thatthe beginnings of disease originate from an imbalance or disharmony in our emotional and spiritual bodies, which can be addressed by realigning ourselves with nature.   When we begin to understand our relationship with nature and how we operate within it, we can begin to heal. 

Plant spirit shamanism brings us into balance and harmony, bringing awareness to the unity of all of life and of treating plants with love and respect.

Research shows plants are intelligence, and can see, hear, smell, and respond. If we treat plants with love, they flourish and grow.  

Shamans from many traditions believe that plants can speak to us, they call to us, if we listen. 

As my Cacao Teacher says, Plants and the Divine speak in paradoxes… and shit can get weird, so we need to get out of our own way, to hear what they have to say.

We can learn a lot through reclaiming the fact that we are nature.

Plants are inviting us to be in a dance with them so that we can sense the healing power of the Divine in them.  It’s simply up to us to heed their call.

I like what Rebekah says in her email:  When we transform from separation consciousness to unity consciousness, we automatically reconnect to nature, and live more symbiotically with the natural world. We also start making the right choices that will leave our planet healthy for future generations, which is our duty, as their ancestors. It is going to take a shift in consciousness, and a value system reset, to bring humanity and the planet back into balance.

For me, as a Shaman in training, Shamanism is a nature-based path, it’s about remembering our connection to nature and remembering that we are all one.  Shamans are facilitators of change, leading to living more harmoniously and helping birth the next step in raising humanities vibration.

Cacao is making herself known, in order to help us with a global shift.  She has much magic to share with us, if we approach her with humility and an empty cup, she will fill that cup to overflowing if we choose to imbibe her magic.

Rebekah shares in her email five of her Tenets of Plant Medicine Shamanism.  The one that really hit home for me and something we often lose sight of, is that we are the ancestors of the future generations (read that again!), and it is our duty to keep our planet healthy and thriving… however, I felt that there was more to the tenet, it goes deeper into healing our own personal wounds so that we do not hand down the wounds of the past to our future generations, we owe to our children’s children to pass down a more healed baton, than the one we received.

Daily Ritual for the final week, is to tune into Cacao for guidance when suddenly feeling triggered or stressed.  Most of don’t reach out for help as we are so self-sufficient, but we can simply connect in with our loving friend, Cacao for guidance.

The suggestion this week is that if I receive a strong message, or someone pops in my mind, contact them.  The idea here is to action on what your intuition or gut is telling me.  When we act on our intuition it, it’s like a muscle, it gets stronger.

And finally, to commit to the final stretch of this 21-day challenge.

Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.

Chief Seattle

#incacaowetrust

Daily Intention:

Today, the energy felt a bit heavy, so my intention was to find lightness and joy in my day.

What am I Grateful for today?

Video calls with my favourite Cousin and Spiritual Sister.

One thing today that made me feel ‘I Love my life’:

Again today, the amazing sound of heavy rain falling!

How did I follow my intuition today (with what results?)

By listening to the no and following through.

What Physical Changes are taking place?

My skin is glowing, and I feel more and more energised each day.  I have also noticed I am eating less junk food (not that I ate much before) and if I think of eating a bag of crisps my body gives me an immediate no.

Daily check in questions:

What difference did this Challenge Make to my day?

The challenge reminded me that we ebb and flow and that sometimes we just need to allow an emotion to wash over us and then let it go.

How is this challenge helping me achieve my goals?

The more I slow myself down, the more I seem to achieve, with a clearer mind.

How is this challenge impacting my relationships with nature, myself, and other relationships?

My relationship with myself is deepening and I am learning to say no to what does not serve me or does not vibe with me.

21 Day Cacao Challenge – Completion of Week 2 (Day 14)


Text to Speech Voices

Over the last two weeks, I can personally attest to the profound shifts that Cacao has had on me during this journey, from lovingly preparing a cup of cacao, to drinking it as part of my daily ritual practice….  Cacao has opened my heart and kept me centred as let go of the past, heal old wounds and step into reconnecting with my creativity and my soul path.

Our inner world is constantly bringing us messages, for growth, in the form of coincidences, or recurring themes.  By giving ourselves space to engage with life as it is, we can start to follow the breadcrumbs that life offers us.

As mentioned in yesterday’s blog, I am truly grateful for the resurgence of this powerful plant medicine that has been revered for centuries. The potentency of this healing and life sustaining elixr has the power to move mountains within us.

Cacao opens us up to be the magical beings that we are!

Rebekah mentions in her email that it at this point that we may get less involved int the challenge as we have already reached a more peaceful and focussed state; however, this is an important week to alchemise our stress and anxiety into a deeper peace and harmony.  This week is about going deeper and putting into practice what we have already learnt about Cacao.

Completion of Week 2 Ritual…was to fully bring our focus into our Heart Chakra after drinking our Cacao and being honest with ourselves on how our heart really feels and honour what we are feeling.

We were then guided to imagine a beautiful pink light to fill up our heart space with love and gratitude for our journey and to imagine this light increasing in strength until it overflows and starts to encompass our bodies.  And to just let this loving energy vibrate around us until we were glowing pink from within.  And finally, to send out love and gratitude for our blessings.

What a truly beautiful practice!

When everything seems too far away from you, don’t despair, return to yourself, return to the voice of your body.  Trust that much.

#incacaowetrust

Daily Intention: 

I read an interesting post on what shadow aspects do the men / women we are manifesting have.  No-one is perfect and whilst we can manifest our ideal person, we need to consider that they come with their own shadowy aspects. 

My intention for today was to be curious about my own shadow and open to accepting we all have shadows and to approach each interaction today with love.

What am I Grateful for today?

I am grateful for this moment.  This moment of silence and introspection.

One thing today that made me feel ‘I Love my life’:

Being able to hear the sound to heavy rainfall.  It is such a soul soothing sound.

How did I follow my intuition today (with what results?)

Today, instead of trusting to remember a process I needed to complete, I got out of my head, slowed down, and let my intuition guide my steps.

What Physical Changes are taking place?

After having shingles earlier this year and then being diagnosed with adrenal fatigue.  Today is the first time in a very long time, my passion for lifting weights has been reignited.  My body is craving physical strength.

Daily check in questions:

What difference did this Challenge Make to my day?

This challenge is helped slow me down and trust myself.  I gave my first Reiki Attunement today and I got out of my head and trusted that I knew what was needed to facilitate the process.

How is this challenge helping me achieve my goals?

The challenge is grounding me and slowing me down, which is reconnecting me to my inner core and re-igniting my passion and confidence for what I do.,

How is this challenge impacting my relationships with nature, myself, and other relationships?

As I continue to slow down and reconnect with myself, I feel more connected and in tune with those around me.
