'Making Fairytales Come True'

Access, Honour, Celebrate!

View from Caer EnganYou can do something life-changing and life-affirming today. You can improve your life. You can change the world. It is really very simple.

In Walking With The Goddess this month we shall be working with the energies of Math ap Mathonwy who will provide us with the key to access our memory codes stored within our DNA. We have memories of all the life that we have ever lived stored within it and in challenging times such as the pandemic has produced, we need to remember how we have previously faced and successfully got through similar experiences. We need to call on our strengths and courage to discover the inspiration to formulate a new way of living – one which does not replicate our old, destructive and dysfunctional ‘normal’ from before Covid-19 but a bright new future which encompasses a nurturing and loving community and nourishes and honours all life on the planet.

There are many ‘keys’ to achieving this. A major necessity is to harmonise our lives with that of the natural world and to reconnect to the rhythms and cycles of the Earth. The first steps we may take to do this is are to literally become aware of the Earth we stand upon and to notice, acknowledge and celebrate what is going on around us in nature. This month there are suggestions for gathering the natural bounty of the wayside and woodland to bring into your home to decorate and enjoy at this time of year.

Hand in hand with this is an active participation in cleaning up and eliminating from our lives activities and substances which are damaging to the environment – and, in a roundabout way, damaging to us too. This month we take a look at the fabric we use to clothe ourselves and decorate our homes with. This needs long, hard consideration and sustainable long-term action – new habits forming and definite decisions making.

Every good thought, each small action does make a difference. We can make a difference. Together, we can achieve a great deal. So why not come Walking With The Goddess today? Each monthly, on-line module contains around 7,000 words (or 24 pages) of background information, inspiring ideas and practical tasks and challenges, as well as a 20 – 40 minute audio guided meditation for you to listen to and join in with. It only costs £5 – and if that is financially too challenging for you, just get in touch with me and we can make some other arrangement.

May you be safe and well in these difficult times.

I look forward to hearing from you,
With my love.

The Goddess Don

Lammas 2019Greetings !

I hope that you and your loved ones are still safe and well?

August is upon us and the start of the grain harvest. The seasons are turning and our challenging situation with Covid-19 still stalks us. But here we are. The sun is shining, the crops ripening and a different – but potentially very positive – future lies before us. A future which we can all participate in reforming and rebuilding.

This is the theme of Walking With The Goddess in August which introduces you to the mother goddess, Don. She will help you to identify and connect to elemental energy and encourage you to develop your own relationship with such an entity. Working with elemental energy, you will be able to begin to directly heal all that is amiss and broken upon our planet – including humanity itself. This you can achieve. It is not difficult or complicated or necessary to be gifted in some special way. You can begin today. Take charge of the future and become empowered in your own creation of an ecologically sustainable and harmonious new way of life.

It is up to you – the decision is yours – the way is found by unlimited connection and unconditional love to all.

What’s In A Seed?

Kale Seeds

Amazingly there are approximately 5,000 magical little parcels here.

I was harvesting seeds today – the last plant of dwarf curly kale from last winter’s crop which I had allowed to go to seed purposely so I could do this. The seed pods have to be allowed to fully develop and then to dry out or else the seeds inside them might not be fully matured. After harvesting I still leave my seeds for a few days in the warmth by the Aga to make sure they are absolutely dry, otherwise I might open up the airtight container in which I have stored them over winter and find a horrible mouldy mess!

Harvesting seeds from one’s own plants makes a huge amount of sense. For one thing, you don’t have to keep on paying several pounds for each new packet of seeds you buy every spring. Perhaps more importantly, keeping your own seeds from year to year allows you to develop your seed which is bred to thrive in your particular soil and weather conditions. It makes absolute sense. (Just be aware that if your plants are F1 Hybrid they will not come true from seed harvested from them.)

Sitting outside my backdoor listening to Classic FM on my little battery-powered radio while I crushed the dried pods and shook the seed free, I was suddenly aware of the huge and absolute potential in each tiny, compact, round ball. Each one represents a whole plant, two and a half feet tall or more, bearing many crinkly, vitamin-rich green leaves which will stand through the worst frost and snow of winter providing precious fresh food for numerous meals. How amazingly wonderful is that?

As my bowl of seeds began to fill, the thought suddenly struck me that perhaps – if such events are allowed to take place next spring – I could packet up some of my harvested abundance and take a little stall at Conwy Seed Fair next March. It is always great fun to attend, whether as a trader or a customer.

And then I thought to myself, why confine my little green garden offerings to one fair – why not resurrect our village artisan market which we supported for five years but which faded without trace about seven years ago? Perhaps in this time of greater need for outdoor, local, ethical and environmentally friendly produce it might once again be successful and appeal to a wider section of society?

In my mind’s eye my vision began to fill with crowds of happy faces, laughing and talking across open air stalls as all manner of local foods and goods change hands. I see similar little markets popping up in every village and area of larger towns and cities. Perhaps we could have a swaps stall and another area where people simply offer to donate their time, effort, or particular skill, or another stall where people offer to work in exchange for what is on sale so that money does not have to change hands… my mind was really racing now… and then I saw all the other local gardens where my saved seeds had been shared and were growing and flourishing to help provide good, fresh, healthy and sustainable foods for other families…

Here, indeed, is to sowing seeds… magical seeds full of dreams, inspiration, endless possibilities and positivity… seeds to charm us all into opening our hearts to each other and the land around us in mutual support and true community… so my little kale seeds whispered to me today as I glimpsed a wonderfully vivid new future…

Walking In The Woods With Merlin

Greetings!

This is just a brief reminder that the new July module of Walking With The Goddess is now ready for you to purchase and download.
https://www.earthwalking.co.uk/checkout/

Sycamore up hillThis month, Merlin the Magician is the divine archetype who will guide you on your journey through the Wild Wood. In this time of Covid-19-fuelled fear, grief and uncertainty he will help you to identify how you can improve your situation.

Discover the new world you wish to birth, which is hidden deep within your subconscious, and how you can begin to create this new reality by working in partnership with the powerful energies of this revered Old One.

Join me on an adventure into our woodlands where you will learn about the amazing relevance of tree in or history and our current lives. You will also be taken step by step through the process of how to identify the energy of a tree, and how to connect to and communicate with a tree of your choice, developing a working relationship with it.

There is so much loveliness and hope being channelled through these monthly excursions into the divine realms of spiritual potential. Don’t miss out on this next encounter with all that is positive and joyful.

Those interested in this sort of work are advised to work through the month of July as the August module lays the foundations for the work planned for August – which centres around working with the Goddess Don and journeying to discover which element (fire earth, air or water) you will be establishing a relationship and working with closely for the foreseeable future.

And please do remember, if you have any questions or queries about any of the work in the modules, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.

Similarly, if you have encountered anything which has upset or disturbed you within the contents, please do let me know.

The course is only £5 for each monthly module, but if you are suffering financial hardship which is making it difficult for you, please do get in touch with me – I am sure that we can come to some alternative arrangement.

May you all stay safe and well. Take good care of yourselves.

With my love,
Gillian.

Glorious June!

Flowers for the goddessJune is here! A gorgeously inspiring month of flowers, light and beauty. With it comes a new module of Walking With The Goddess inviting you to blend and meld with the natural potency and energy of the Sun as we approach Midsummer, to experience a wondrously joyful dance with the Lady of Flowers, and to harmonise your wisdom and channels of connection with the Owl Goddess, Blodeuwedd.

You will also be guided to open your eyes, become more sensitively and intuitively aware and deepen your psychic abilities to understand what is going on around you in your personal, domestic world. And you will be encouraged to formulate a new future – reject a return to the out-worn ‘old norm’ and dream into being a vibrant new  normality.  This is a joyous, celebratory month and the activities of this module reflect the optimism and potential of an alternative bright future.

This is a fresh and totally original way of experiencing and interacting with ancient archetypal deity, both for the self development and the healing of our planet.

to find out more. It only costs £5 and there is no obligation to fulfil any task or to continue. If you would like to discuss anything with me about the digital course, simply send me an email or message.

One way or another, I very much look forward to hearing from you!

Nearly There!

Our Mountain

My home mountain

This evening, I am celebrating. I have just finished writing the penultimate chapter of my latest book, ‘Spring In Your Step’! I have to say that I am quite glad to be done with Easter now, although I thoroughly enjoyed writing about it… all the beliefs, traditions and lovely foods which surround its celebration!

Finally I can move on to the end of April – and the end of the book – although I am already having ideas about my next venture which might be plunging into summer… or I might take a break and focus on something quite different… we shall have to see!

But for now, I am one happy little bunny!!!

Walking With The Goddess in May

Beltane BranchesAt this troubled and challenging time of Covid-19, you are perfect for the task of helping to get us all out of this frightening mess… you are exactly the person we need to help heal us… you are the one who will be able to bring changes about and reorganise our society into a ‘new normal’ which is far superior to our old ‘normal’. We don’t want the old normal back again – it was never very good for us or the rest of the planet – we need to take all that is of worth bravely forward into a new and promising future. And for that, we need YOU!

Some might gain insight and strength from my monthly online module of Walking With The Goddess. For May, the focus is on early summer and the element of Air and the importance and inspiration which it brings into our lives. It is this profound necessity of our lives which is under threat now from the pandemic – the literal ability to draw breath into our bodies to sustain our lives. Journey into and with the wind… venture within yourself and seek out and experience your own intimate centre of love and compassion… and how you might use your truly wonderful, loving self to bring courage and healing to everything around you and to form a beautiful new world.

We need to take a deep look at ourselves and our relationship with All That Is around us. We need to seek the positive qualities within ourselves and nurture and use them to contribute towards forming a brave new world for ourselves and everything else which exists with us on the planet. To aid us in this, there is a journey to the god, Bran, mythical Guardian of The British Isles, and his sister, the gentle goddess Branwen. I know that you are up to the task because you are alive, now, in the year 2020 – therefore you are definitely equal to the challenge, whether you feel it or not.

We are ALL needed in the task ahead of us. We are all vital to achieving what must be done. We all need support and encouragement. This is what Walking With The Goddess brings to you. The Earth does not wish to punish us or annihilate us… but she needs us to find a different and better way of being which will care for and promote the well-being of all Life here and to this end she is prepared to give us all the support she can.

The approach and information which is contained in these monthly modules has been channelled from beautiful, wise sources. I offer each month – with unlimited support and back-up from me, and the opportunity of connecting to others who are taking part – for the very modest fee of £5… and even that is negotiable in these financially difficult times; just contact me and we can come to an alternative arrangement. Reach out. Do it today. https://www.earthwalking.co.uk/walking-with-the-goddess/

We are all broken in some way, but we are all capable of finding ways of mending ourselves… and each other. Whether you roll into action of your own or other alternative volition, or whether you take the plunge and seek guidance and support via this course is not important – just do something – our future is in your hands.

Dear readers, you are amazing and beautiful and all that is needed. May you all be well and healthy, brave and positive.

With my love.

How To Offend A Toothbrush

Gillian Spring EquinoxThis morning on Facebook I saw this very question. One lady was sad that the usefulness of her long-lasting toothbrush had finally come to an end and she didn’t want to offend it by using it to clean anything else before finally disposing of it. Another lady wanted to know how on earth you actually offend a toothbrush? I would have liked to answer her at the time but couldn’t stop to do it then – however, the druid in me can’t let it go – so here is my answer – see if you agree with it or understand what I am talking about. There are actually two ways in which we can ‘offend’ an inanimate object.

Firstly, everything resonates with energy – scientifically proven fact. Mental thoughts, spoken words and emotions also have vibrating energies – also scientifically proven fact, as illustrated in the many research programmes involving plant life and how it responds to certain actions being performed near to it or various emotions and/or thoughts being directed at it… sometimes from hundreds of miles away.

I acknowledge that a toothbrush is an inanimate object rather than a plant which ‘lives’ but it will still resonate with energy and still be subject to thoughts, (and the intentions they contain), so at some very low level of resonance it will react to the unharmonious thoughts being directed at it while its owner/user is contemplating throwing it way or otherwise destroying if.

All You Need Is Love

Tree Dorothea Easter

Springtime is full of loveliness and makes unconditional loving easier.

The pop group The Beatles certainly had it right when they sang those words all those decades ago. When we have done and said and thought all that we can and our backs are up against a wall, (as they are now with Covid-19), all we have left is to show our love. I have just read something written by a member of the Society of Friends (Quakers) which says that they view the empty towns and villages, the deserted roads and streets as a huge act of love – love and consideration of humanity for each other in taking care not to put each other in more danger at this crucial point in our history… in other words, our very absence demonstrates our true presence and intent.

We can show our love for each other and the world around us by any number of mundane and seemingly inconsequential actions but the sum total – and the effect it has on both giver and recipient – is incalculable. For love is not simply a transient emotion; it is a very real and potent energy… the absolute best.

With our modern predilection for having things demonstrated I can prove it to you. In 1992, Bruce Tainio, of Tainio Technology, a division of Eastern State University in America, determined that the electrical frequency of the healthy human body is somewhere between 62-78 Hz (Hertz). Everything has an electrical frequency, including diseases which resonate at a lower rate than a healthy body. For instance, colds and ‘flu have an electrical frequency of 58 Hz. A human body under stress or exposed to pollutants can easily drop in resonance to 58 Hz or below. Perhaps a correlation between Covid-19 and the worst effected industrial areas of the world may be noted here? The literal danger our health carers are in equally becomes more apparent as their state of exhaustion and stress results in a drop in their energetic resonance and leaves them vulnerable to the infection they are attempting to protect everyone else from.

However, the particular point I wish to make here is that a human body experiencing emotions or mental states also resonates at an equally identifiable frequency. Such feelings as gratitude, empathy and compassion can be measured at the massive resonance of 200 – 350 Hz., but for someone expressing the emotion of unconditional love, the resonance is off the scale – it is so high that it is immeasurable.

So here is something that absolutely everyone can do in our universal time of need. Balancing intellect with emotion, we are all capable of sending out loving thoughts… to other people… to those working on our behalf (and that also includes all the other services and key workers, such a delivery drivers and shop workers)… to the beauty and bounty of the natural world. We can do it anywhere, anytime… sitting in our favourite armchair, lying in bed, having a bath, peeling the potatoes. But the love must be unconditional – no fear or grief or judgement attached – the kind of unrestricted and pure sensation we experience when we see a little kitten or puppy, or a new born baby – that complete gush of joyful and wholehearted emotion; a sensation of giving of oneself, totally.

For those of us who are lucky enough to live with family or friends, a good way of boosting our own resonating energies is to give – and receive – hugs… good strong, long hugs which last twenty seconds or more. A warm and generous hug acts upon the vagal nerve and the parasympathetic nervous system which has a beneficial knock-on effect on all the major organs in our body and stimulates our immune system. Such a simple action. Give yourself and someone you care about a tonic this minute; find a member of your household and give them a good long hug.

Many of us live solitary lives, but, whether we realise it or not, we are never truly alone. We are connected to every other person on – and off – the planet at a higher level. We are also connected to the world around us by similar energies. Send out your loving good wishes… to someone or something specific or simply to the ‘world’ as a whole. Tap your chest over where your heart beats and imagine a beam of pure, gentle light pouring out of you. Add your loving emotion to it. You will discover that one of the side-effects of this incredibly simple activity is that you, yourself, become altogether calmer.

Alternatively, if you have difficulty with the concept of unconditional love, try feeling gratitude instead. Look around you and acknowledge all that you can feel grateful for and give deep thanks for it. Yes, we all have a very great deal to be thankful for; if you don’t believe me, try writing a list and include everything, from the roof over your head to the clothes on your back and the food on your plate. Look around you. Don’t just stop there… be thankful for the sunshine, the wind and rain and the birds and animals, the earth and the flowers and all the insects which pollinate them… and the fact that you can see and hear and feel… and that you can breath, unlike thousands of other unfortunate souls who have been – and still are – battling to do just that. Eventually, you will find that your appreciation deepens and starts to become something altogether more loving and joyful – go with it and give it your all, for this is the beginning of unconditional love and the ultimate answer to all our woes and difficulties. One of my favourite sayings is that we cannot always be cured, but we can always be healed. Love is healing. Love is transformative. It is portable, mobile, able to be sent out and directed by beings of all ages and abilities. It can change your world… our world… the world. You have the answer in your own hands… in your own heart. Make the most of it today, every day. All you need is love…

Practical Action – Walking With The Goddess This April

Gorse and Mountain, Cae NonWish to take back control of your life? Ready to try something new? Want to heal the world around you? This month I am introducing the power of sound and the miraculous effects it can have on stones which you will be shown how to use in the healing of all the major chakras of the Earth. To support and guide you, we shall be making connection with Taliesin – the famous magical Welsh poet, and Melangell – the Celtic saint based on ancient belief and practices.

All the work I introduce in these modules is completely fresh and new and channelled from the inspirational divine sources quoted each month. I sometimes feel that I cannot take responsibility for what each month contains as it has been given to me direct – I work in partnership with these ancient archetypes… they tell me and I simply work with it… explain it… write it down…

As the spring flourishes around us, the April module of Walking With The Goddess is ready for purchase, it is only £5.
