'Making Fairytales Come True'

Category: News (Page 1 of 2)

It’s Here!

New Book Dress Rehearsal

‘Spring’ is not quite this large – it is just the perspective of the camera shot – but I promise you that it is a good read!

It is said that if winter comes, can spring be far behind? Well, for me, winter truly begins this weekend… and my third book, ‘Spring In Your Step’ will be published ten days later. And here it is! The proof copy (which is why it has that dark strip across its front cover) just to make sure that there is nothing else that needs doing to it before it goes to print.

The book takes us all from the cold, snowy, dark depressing days of January through the spring months to the very edge of summer and explains how the celebration of the return of spring has developed over the years – not only in the U.K. but in other parts of the world too, it is just another common thread which humanity shares – but contains loads ideas of how we may enjoy these often difficult days of bad weather when the light and warmth of spring and summer seems a very long way off. There are lots of examples of how we might genuinely and authentically celebrate and enjoy these first few often inhospitable months of the year and use them for planning and laying the groundwork for the rest of our year… which, hopefully, will literally give you a real ‘spring in your step’. Like every other season, it is not really what is happening in the rest of the world but how we choose to see it, and hopefully, my third book will help everyone to recalibrate their perception of the first season of the year and make the absolute most of these fresh young spring days of hope, inspiration and potential.

‘Spring In Your Step; Discover and Celebrate the Magic of Springtime’ can be pre-ordered now on https://herbarybooks.com/product/spring-in-your-step/

‘Dementia Diary’ – published 30th September

On the 30th September, my dear friend and fellow author, Ali Sinclair, has her first book, ‘Dementia Diary; A love story to the end’ published by Herbary Books.

Ali has produced a charmingly frank, honest, sensitive, and very personal account of one woman’s challenge to single-handedly identify and care for her beloved partner who develops frontal lobe vascular dementia and it makes remarkably compelling reading. It is interwoven with poems and diary exerts which encapsulate Ali’s emotions, humour, confusion and frustrations as their love and life together is increasingly tried and tested by Bob’s deteriorating health.

The brisk, lively pace of the narrative also refreshingly illustrates how and why it is perfectly permissible to feel fear, anger, and despair and how Ali often manages to dig deep and draw on reserves of patience, love and understanding. Ali hopes that in honestly and authentically sharing her experiences it might help others in similar circumstances.

I really wish Ali well with her first venture into the literary world. It took her a great deal of courage to re-open old wounds and re-read her diaries so that she could write her beautiful, touching and inspiring story of determination, tenderness and love… to the very end.

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.

With my love to you,

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!!!

A Gift For You

Melly in dog pool

In peace, harmony and playfulness!

Greetings!

My new Walking With The Goddess monthly digital workshops are going really well, but I am keen to get everyone – at least as absolutely as many as possible – involved in these activities.

The best way to convey exactly how I approach each month’s topics and in what way the energies of each divine archetype is harnessed, let alone how the audio recordings of the guided journeys come across to you, or the challenges and tasks might stimulate and inspire you… gasp! … is to let you actually take a look at the first month, which was February. I do not want you to pay me anything. Just click here for your download.

Please do come and and see for yourself . Try out the suggestions. See how working in this way makes you feel – and how beneficial and healing all round it can be.

I would also welcome any feedback and comments you may care to share. Give it a try. It is truly a good way to work, hands on, in beginning to heal some of the many problems and difficulties which face us in the very near future.

You have nothing to lose and possibly a very great deal to gain. And it is absolutely free… with my love.

Next Instalment of Digital Healing Workshop

january BonfireGreetings for the bright beginnings of a new month!

Just a brief reminder that the next instalment of Walking With The Goddess is now available to purchase.

This is a brilliant opportunity to do something truly different – to heal and be healed – to become increasingly empowered and to reach out to the world around you and make a huge difference.

The focus for March is on the element of fire – the growing light and warmth of the returning spring and the energy which it represents in regrowth throughout the natural world. There is an explanation of the importance of the hearth within the Celtic home and community and how we can discover our own sacred fire. There is an audio recording of a guided journey to the hearth of the goddess Ffraid to find inspiration and healing, whilst the challenges and tasks for the month involve our local communities and the rewilding of our public or neglected places.

There are also weekly distant healing sessions to join in with each Wednesday evening and a Facebook page where you are welcome to ask questions or  share ideas, experiences and encouragement.

It only costs £5 for each monthly module. Come and sample what I am offering for March. For more information or to pay for the next month, click here: https://www.earthwalking.co.uk/walking-with-the-goddess/  This takes you to the Introductory page at the bottom of which you will find the Pay Button to purchase your next month of inspiring experiences and interaction with our amazing world.

Full Steam Ahead!

Flower at BodnantI have suddenly realised that it is several weeks since I last posted here… and the reason why is because I have been working very hard on my next book, ‘Spring In Your Step’!

I have just completed Chapter Seven out if a possible twelve and am around the 47,000 word mark, so I am now ell over half way. More importantly, I am really enjoying what I am writing and am so excited about what I shall eventually be sharing with you all.

The chapter I have just written is all about the ‘Mother’ figure of springtime – and that covers the natural world, our genetic mothers and Mother’s Day/Mothering Sunday and the feminine within us all. In mentioning Lady Day – how many of you know what it actually is? – I found myself attempting to explain the vagaries of the various changes in our calendar over the years. And did you know that the name for ‘simnel cake’ actually stems from the very fine flour with which it was originally made? I was also drawn to share how just nine years ago, at this exact time of year, we came to discover – and eventually purchase – our own little piece of wonderful wilderness at Cae Non.

I am really, really hoping to have this next book finished by sometime in May and out in the shops by October or November – well in time for next Christmas and the following spring, so that you can all join me on the next adventure through a new year and a new season in 2021!

Meanwhile, the spring of 2020 is well and truly upon us, despite the all the wind and water. Birds are singing and nesting, buds are swelling, flowers are blooming.

Wherever you are, I hope that the season is treating you kindly. If the weather is causing you problems and heartache, my love goes out to you.

Onwards and upwards, as the saying goes – here is looking forward to all the new life and new growth which typifies this most beautiful and special time of the year.. with my love.

A New Year… New Decade – Try Something New

Goddess candleDO SOMETHING DIFFERENT!

Positive. Healing. Enjoyable and beneficial. Come Walking With The Goddess! Time to move out of the shade and into the sunlight. Take your life in both of your hands and make a difference… for yourself… for the people around you.. for the natural world.. for the planet. Healing for all the Earth at the deepest, highest level. YOUR world. YOUR choice. Are you ready to dare yourself to meet the challenge? Here is how you can.

This month I am beginning a new on-line series of activities and guided meditations / journeys. I show you how you can access the highest healing energy to make our existence whole again. Introducing archetypes from the Welsh/Celtic pantheon of goddesses, gods and deities I demonstrate how we can ALL take responsibility for the state of our world and make a very real difference.

But I am offering so much more, suggesting many ways in which we can all physically and practically change our day to day lives too. I offer encouragement and support to everyone to make a stand, privately or publicly, in spreading the word throughout your local communities, guiding the attention, activities and responses of our public servants and bringing pressure to bear on businesses, both large and small. I will be facilitating a distance healing group which we can all join with on a weekly basis. There is a Facebook page where we can all share our experiences and findings, suggestions and news, and I will be personally  and privately available to anyone who needs a little extra support and needs to get in touch with me.

Please spread the word and pass this message on to as many people as possible. It is only by coming together and standing up for what is right that we will succeed in mending what we have so thoughtlessly, carelessly and cruelly broken. We have all helped to cause the devastation of our environment. For most of us, it was done in naivety and ignorance, But now we know what we have done, it is time to change our outlook, our way of life, our everyday actions and do something to halt and heal the destruction. This is one of the things that you can do and might be the most important initial action you take.

It only costs £5 for each monthly module. Come and sample what I am offering for February. For more information or to pay for the first month, click here: https://www.earthwalking.co.uk/walking-with-the-goddess/

As always, with my love to you all.

Freeing Black Friday

Me at Book PublicationI detest the warped, avaricious sentiment which drives the ‘Black Friday’ sales! In response, we are giving away 50 electronic copies of ‘The Alternative Advent Calendar’.

Instead of accumulation we are aiming for distribution – expansive liberalism as opposed to money-grabbing profit – generosity in place of narrow-minded self interest!

Come and claim your copy – as always, with my love.
