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

Long ago, Witches were the village healers, sought after for their wisdom and intuitive natural healing abilities.  They were the medicine women, the midwives, the visionaries, the story keepers and guardians of the feminine mysteries.

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. You are beginning to feel at home in your own skin this month.  Coming home to yourself is realising that what you have been searching for has been within you all along.  Authenticity is your home, you are safe here in the house of your spirit and Spirit.

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.

More details below!

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

Summertime is for healing…


iSpeech.org

Hello Dear Ones

July has arrived with stormy weather here in Scotland. June felt a bit heavy with retrogrades and eclipses, so the rainy weather feels refreshing and rejuvenating.

July supports the energy of victory and expanding our personal horizons, think Julius Caesar and his triumphant statement Veni Vidi Vici!

I was reading the July Forecast from the School of Shamanism and Lena says that the main theme for July is “Two Steps Forward, One Step Back”. A Chameleon immediately came to mind and their message is ‘Watch and Wait’, the highway of life has more than just green lights.

So, whilst the energy of the month is vibrant, and we are amped to get going, we may feel like we are being reigned in. Just remember, this is exactly where we need to be right now because with every push forward, there is a need to look back and this may be necessary, for emotional clearing or a completion of a cycle… whatever the reason for looking back, remember this is necessary to ensure that our move forward is truly aligned with what we want.
Whilst out and about celebrating the radiant warmth of summer…. continue working on your goals, your personal growth and you will find yourself a victor!

Warm Summer love!

PS: We are running a Tarot / Oracle Reading Giveaway on Instagram, don’t forget to enter! You stand a chance of winning one of Fionn’s Shamanic Card Readings. The competition closes on Monday, 13 July 2021.

You have been following Fionn’s blog about her journey with Mama Cacao during June. I was on a journey with her as well, but a very different one. Those of you that have sat in ceremony with us will know that I am not a great fan of the taste. I like what it stands for, I like the experience I get from it, but I dislike the taste. It is hard work drinking it. But I tried it, the first week it went well and I thought I can do this. And then life happened and I only occasionally took it. This experience does not mean that the last month has not been transformational, because it has. For a variety of reasons.

We finished the Goddess workshop a little while ago, but during the last month, we did some constellation work using the four archetypes we worked with. It was a powerful experience. There were some surprises for me, but deep down I knew how these four archetypes were out of alignment, who was feeling repressed, who was dominant and who had barged in to try and keep things calm. I had a coaching session at work this week and we talked about this work in relation to my work. I have a lot to work on. So now I am trying to let the mother rest and allowing the wild woman and the maiden a little playtime. The crone is there, but just keeping an eye on proceedings. That is easier said than done. This morning during a meditation I was reminded to look at my heart box and remember what was important to me. Have a look at my witchy tip below for more details on a heart box.
Anyway, I have been expecting change for a long time now and I think it has started.

And my final word: those that have signed up for the magical life workshop are in for a treat. Not only do we have an exciting 5 weeks lined up, but I love the witches starter kit I have put together.

Check out the unboxing of the Magical Life Workshop box here!

Have a lovely July.

With lots of love

June felt epically long! I loved the time expansion, it felt like the world slowed down, allowing for much-needed downtime! As I mentioned last month, I took the month off to recalibrate my inner world and follow my intuition and aim my arrow in the direction of my heart’s desires!

I kicked off June by stepping further onto my path as a Reiki Teacher, which has thus far brought some fascinating ideas on how to weave my passion for archetypes and cacao into my practice.

The day dawned gorgeous and sunny, and I was excited to take my next steps on this path. Throughout the afternoon there were lots of messages from spirit and my guides, affirming I am on track.

First up was a beautiful reflexology session infused with Reiki. It was during reflexology I was guided into a mediation, and I found myself on a yellow brick road… Yup, much like the yellow brick road Dorothy was on in The Wizard of OZ, except I didn’t have red Dorothy shoes, my feet were bare! Also, I didn’t have the Tin Man, Lion or Scare Crow… I had my heart and my Animal Guides… and it felt like I was heading off on an adventure of the heart.

Afterwards, we headed into the garden to embark on Reiki Teacher training, and we discussed my vision for teaching and for my practice.  After receiving my attunement another affirmation that I am on an adventure of the heart, came through.

I am super excited about how this is all unfolding!

Simultaneously, I felt called to attune myself more deeply to the Master Plant Medicine Cacao as part of a 21-day challenge. Each day I created a sacred pause to sit in ritual to be fully present with myself and deepen my relationship with Cacao. Cacao helps us to listen and to feel, she encourages us to reflect on our life and where we can open our heart to our calling.

I have loved connecting with her over the last month and diving deep into her history, the challenge has grounded me, slowed me down and brought me back to my heart centre.

If you haven’t read about my journey thus far… check out our blog.

I am thinking about running a 21-day Cacao Challenge later this year, please do let me know if you are interested, it has truly been an expansive journey and I recommend it wholeheartedly!

Last month we closed off our Goddess Workshops with constellation work, recalibrating the Maiden, the Mother, the Wild Woman and Crone within us… It was the perfect way to end off our workshops, giving those who attended amazing insight on which archetypes need more nurturing from us. We have opened registration for the Goddess Archetype Workshops… do let us know if you would like to join!

Sending you all so much love and happy summer vibes 💗

The Owls Witchy Tip

Make a little keepsake box out of any sturdy box. Mine is a beautiful jewellery box that my Goddess necklace came in. In it, I have little things that make my heart sing. Some of it is a little something I have picked up because it is pretty and some of it represents the things I love most in life.

Try making one for yourself, open it when you are down or you doubt yourself and you will be reminded of what makes you happy and those things that should play a bigger part in your life. 

The Wolfs Wild Tip

Focus on your Heart. 

We are so busy hustling and trying to keep our lives afloat, we waste so much energy getting stuck in our heads trying to figure life out.

Instead, drop into your heart and allow yourself to fully feel what's going on inside of you.

Talk to it, listen to it, thank it, ask it to share its wisdom with you.  

Summertime is a good time to heal and let go of any emotional wounds from the past, giving us the space to open up our hearts to what's present for you now and what it's guiding you towards in the future.

Celebrating Litha – How to Make a Besom


iSpeech.org

It is 2 days before Litha, the Summer Solstice. For me there is something magical and sad about the longest day. My garden is full, there are plants I have planted and plants that have just appeared. In Scotland this year we have had a few nice days and there is the hope that more will come our way. But the longest day means that the days will slowly start getting shorter again and before we know it Samhain is here and the darkness has returned. 

This weekend I am celebrating the light. When I am done writing this I am going to go and clean my altar and get it ready for my solstice ritual tomorrow. 

I have just made a little altar besom and wanted to share the process with you.

I have used lavender wood as the handle. My front garden is full of lavender and some did not survive the winter. When I started digging them out to make space for something else I discovered how beautiful the wood is and decided to keep some. 

Every year I harvest a lot of mugwort to make tea, use in spells and make sleep pillows. I have been keeping the woody bits for the solstice fire, but it is going to rain so there may be no solstice fire tomorrow. These bits have made the centre of the ‘hairy’ bit of the besom. I tied them into a little bundle with some twine, but you could use anything.

I then tied this bundle to one end of the lavender stick I am using.

I decided to use fresh herbs to finish off the besom. Traditionally you would use dried bits, but my harvest has only just started and some are not ready yet. Anyway the fresh herbs will give a lovely smell. They have just been placed around the dried mugwort and I have tied them on as I went. I used lavender, rosemary and thyme, but any woody herbs will do. 

I finished off the bottom of the herb part by twisting twine around and just tying in a bow. 

Happy making and may you have a light filled Litha.

With Love
