Seeding not Teaching. Beliefs or Knowing? Enquire Within!!

 Photo: Wakapuaka skyline. Nelson NZ. I hope that some reading this will ponder the words and expand into new places of thinking in their own minds. They will need to be open to hearing, and, filter thoughts in such a way that they allow themselves the time to recognise what is being said. The heart, gut and mind will be required to operate in unison. I am sure we have all done it - heard things that seem ridiculous and…

Photo: The Boulder Bank or Te Pokohiwi is a 13 kilometre long, naturally formed landform in Nelson, New Zealand. The rocks of the boulder bank are letters and words.  Every day with changing tide, sea mood, and energy,  they move and form different patterns and placements; making different sounds, meanings, and effects. You are the sea. Word Alchemy  -  Courage When I was writing Ride and was asked; ‘what do you do?’  I would answer that I was writing a…

Photo: Tonight's sunset 10/11/2020  Same photo as Ride's cover just different day, different light, different times  Letter to Dr Northrup On a whim, I wrote to Dr Christiane Northrup and sent her a copy of Ride. I had been listening to her Great Awakening posts and enjoying them and decided I wanted to gift her a book. I thought she may know someone who could benefit from it, given her work. To my surprise, she read out my letter on…

Photo: Dylan's Storm 6.1.2013 Change, Opportunity and Critical Thinking After writing and publishing the first Edition of Ride I still wasn’t fully sure what it was about. I had simply followed an internal dialogue which had told me to get the work done. I trusted that dialogue and wrote and published. The road to publishing was fraught with blocks and I often wondered if, what I had written was useful or helpful, had any value at all, or was meant…

Photo: Cobb Valley. Kahurangi National Park. Page 124 Ritual Process - Ride .... Peace through Connection to Self-Spirit -Nature Allowing Process and Speaking Your Truth During the last few months, I feel like I have been tested in my ability to allow process– like waiting for clarity coming from murky water… I have been required to show gritty patience while certain things in my life have come into balance or fruition.   Due to this,  I thought I would write a…

Authentic Connection – Part Four (following on from Parts one, two and three). Authentic Connection and Feelings. In my previous blog I suggest that Authentic connection requires us to be connected with ourselves first. This requires a certain level of self-awareness. We are best connected with ourselves if we can be aware of our feelings and how they may be affecting our…

Photo: The Lee Valley where we spread Gus's ashes Authentic Connection - Part Three (following on from Part one and Part two) Avoiding or Creating Authentic Connections - it's our choice. Not long after Dylan's death, a long standing friend of almost 20 years – withdrew, and to this day still ignores me. Since she won’t talk with me, I have had to understand the reason she withdrew without her input. I consider at least some of the reason was…

Photo: White basket fungus. Connection Holds Things Together. Authentic Connection - Part Two (following on from Part one). When Dylan had only just died many people wanted to connect with me- at that time we had a lot in common – we were all shocked and many of us were incredibly sad that Dylan had made the decision he did. It was surprising to me though, that not long after Dylan’s death many of those same people withdrew and had…

Photo: Burial stones 24.4.2014 Authentic Connection - Part One. Connection is a big word – It’s a bit like Ride in that it has multiple meanings and applications. In many of the stories in Ride- the book, connection is a central theme. In these three Authentic Connection blogs I am going to explore more about the nature of connection. I am hoping that maybe the blogs will get people thinking about - What we chose to connect to Who we…

Photo: Steve, January 2013 Spoiler alert - If you haven’t read Ride yet, then maybe leave reading this blog until you have. I did consider that a few people would ask me what happened to Steve once they had read Ride. Recent events have encouraged me to answer this question sooner than later. Just before the publication of Ride I got word that Steve had died. I was devastated, lots of tears. Last minute before printing, I chose to include…
