As though spiritual growth has an age limit

When people come to me for a reading, sit before me, and see youth across my face, I see their eyes flicker with doubt. As though spiritual growth has an age limit, and trauma is only mastered by the old. I see as they think, how could anyone under the age of 30 have any guidance to share. Age is stored in the soul, and throughout our session they begin to see it through the fire in my eyes, as they utter ‘old soul’ and ‘wise beyond your years’. We are all so quick to judge. Our default setting is to base our judgements off what we see alone. We have to train ourselves to look deeper, peel back the...

Never lose your childish enthusiasm

“Never lose your childish enthusiasm, it’s the most important thing” this quote from ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’, always stuck with me. Deeply rooted medicine, as though the saying reverberated throughout my timeline, I felt a deep calling to root into my childish nature. With a constant pull into the dark depths of my soul, and yet a strong urge to shine my light through my shadow side, tinging it with youthful innocence. Queen of contradictions, ambivalent in nature, finding comfort in being both the virgin and the whore, every step I’ve ever made has been in polarity. With an army eternally waiting to defend if ever someone dared to brand me with a label, knowing I am as changing as...

Before I stepped into my power, before I found my path.

I was a girl. Caught up in a religion I did not believe in, bound by the constraints of wanting to please, I was drowning. It has not been an easy path to get to where I am today. It has been filled with tragedies and heartache, grief, trauma and disappointments, but a hell of a lot of love. And as cliched as it sounds, I would never change my past. Every single one of those difficult things I had to endure made me exactly who I am today. Through pain I learnt how to love, through trauma I learnt how to heal.

I must be a mermaid. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living. - Anais Nin

My best thoughts come in water. Certain I was part fish in another life, my husband often hears the phrase ‘I think I’m drying out’. I ache for the sea. Unable to live more than five minutes drive from the shore, if I can’t smell salt in the air I struggle. A gift from Poseidon, or maybe my Pisces moon, my creativity flows to the sound of moving water. Eternally feeling more at home beneath the waves. Words and water perpetually intertwined, as though one can not be without the other, and both more needed to sustain my body than air. The sea fuels me and lights my life. But before I learnt how to turn that fuel to fire,...

I would fall in love with the idea of them.

Eternally attracted to the broken. An internal need to fix in them, what I could never fix within myself. Destined to see the best in people. An addict to potential, falling in love with who they could be, never with who they were. I would love them as my imagined ‘best version’ of themselves. And as time wore on, and they ‘refused’ to grow, my love would diminish, my attention would waiver. Forever wondering if they were ever in love with me, or were they simply in love with the person I saw them to be. Did they fall in love with their own reflection in my eyes, they way I spoke of their bright future as if a definite...
