Enjoying the Sensual World

Before we decided to go to Greece we pulled cards to help us make the decision. One of the cards was this Ace of Pentacles from the Sasuraibito Tarot. How could I have possibly known how important this card would come to be for me? When I look at this card now I see a woman, centred in herself, deeply…

Trust – Reflections on Our Last Day in Greece

Today is our last day in Greece. I took this photo yesterday in Crete using the Vessel Oracle deck by Mary Evans. I don’t think I could have chosen a more perfect card! I have so much to reflect on, and will keep sharing as I go through all the photos! I haven’t even looked at the photos we took…

For Everything – For it All

I’m sitting outside a church at the end of the day thinking about what it means to be a human being in this world full of struggle. A sleepy cat is next to me and people at the cafes nearby are having a good time. I’m thinking about connection, roots and how I want to be in the world. And…

Facing My Fears in Delphi

I sat at the side of the road up the hill from the Temple of Athena Pronaia at Delphi crying and frozen because I wasn’t sure if I could handle the heights. It was one of those moments when I had to dig deep and face my fears. I wouldn’t say I’ve overcome them but I didn’t let them stop…

Pilgrimage – Feeling the Power and the Terror

Two moments: one feeling powerful the other terrified. We made it to Eleusis during opening hours, and I took the first photo by the cave to the Underworld. The second was after crying when we got to Delphi. The mountain drives finally got to me and I broke down as soon as the car stopped. I’m not sure I’ve ever…

Woke up to a Dream Come True

Woke up to a dream come true. After 30 hours travel + a day to get to Halifax, we’ve arrived and settled in Nafplio. We just had lunch at a taverna right outside where we’re staying. The food was incredible, cats were hanging out with us, and it just feels so laid back and magical. Feeling things shifting within already.…

Letting Go of Control to Find My Poet’s Soul

I’m letting go of control. After flying all day and having flights changed all over the place I’m getting hit over the end with the fact that it’s not my plan. I spent yesterday going down old roads of unworthiness, fear, and anger. How long before I realize that my worth cannot come from outside of myself, that only I can…

Glastonbury Pilgrimage: The Longing

Go back to Glastonbury, I heard myself say Feel the energy of the sacred landscape in your cells again Let go of who you think you are You have a Great Goddess within It is not so complicated Your life is not an equation to solve Go back to the Goddess She will nurture and love you She will help you see…

Returning, Remembering: Finding the Deep Me

Get comfy, make yourself a cup of tea, and I’ll read to you…(I even sing a little at the end). Listen to the audio! I woke up on my own, walked to the High Street, had a fruit smoothy at the Backpacker’s hostel, and met a friend who said goodbye to me later in the evening by squeezing me tight and…
