It’s taken me 40 years to realise what was right under my pig-headed Taurean nose! I grew up watching my Grand-Nan coach my Mum in reading Tarot and Tea Leaves.
I was 5 when I brewed my first Witches ‘brew’ for my Mum’s Tea Leaf Readings, and her Tarot cards were regularly all over the dinner table!
I resisted the cards myself. Oh I made a right meal of resisting them! Even when I reached the heady heights of an Intuitive and Spiritual Guide to awakening women all over the world, I resisted Tarot. Even though I knew the cards so well I resisted. Even though it’s in my ancient bloodline I resisted!! I have to say that I can only see this in hindsight. I didn’t know at the time!
Q: Why do I think I resisted?
A: The Witch Wound!
Mum was terrified of her own gifts. She’d been ridiculed and beaten for them in this lifetime and no doubt persecuted and/or executed in previous ones. She handed the fear onto me and strongly discouraged me.
Well, no more. I surrender!
I whole-heartedly surrender. (My brother presenting me with our late Mum’s original cards confirmed it!).
And of course the moment you do let go the floodgates open and magic happens. Everything comes together. Doors open. Ideas and intuition flows. And new beginnings await…

Do you find yourself hiding your oracle card decks when your Mother visits?
Are you silent about your spiritual beliefs around your Church friends?
Do you go through waves of panic and fear just thinking about stepping out of the Spiritual Closet and doing the healing/intuitive/psychic/spiritual work you’ve always wanted to do?
Have you realised that your mental and physical health suffers when you suppress your true self, intuitive/healing gifts and abilities?
If you answered YUP! then you’re probably experiencing what I describe as the ‘Witch Wound’.

NO matter what your beliefs are around past lives, many women as they awaken start to experience flashbacks, fears and visions that make no sense. Women who have never even vaguely been interested in Wicca or Witchcraft start having ‘memories’ bubble up about meeting a messy end as a Witch.

I was terrified. My gut was in knots. A friend had pushed me off the ledge and suggested I rent a room at a doctor-run complimentary clinic in town. But how could I? I knew my dream was to work for myself in some way that would heal and empower women but I wasn’t ready.
Or was I?

There are many reasons why women hold themselves back from stepping into their full potential but as Venus goes into retrograde let’s look at one of the biggies.
As a woman starts to awaken and her consciousness expands she begins to tap into the collective experience and shared ‘pain body’ of woman.
Every month with our cycle we tap even deeper into that shared sisterhood experience.
As her passion and purpose begin to stir within her she faces the dark places that hold us all back.
One of which is the fear of what happens when an awakened woman decides to “put her head above the parapet” and dare to be seen.

This past weekend I headed off on a mighty road trip with my friend and fellow ‘Spiritual Crisis’ experiencer, Emma. Our mission, should we choose to accept it, was to attend the Spiritual Crisis Network UK’s annual conference (I’m part of their development team) and to go to a pioneering two day training on how to help people experiencing spiritual emergence, hosted by Dr Emma Bragdon.
A dear friend and client of mine died tragically last year as a result of her spiritual emergence process tipping into an emergency. The doctors didn’t recognise Spiritual Emergence and so treated her as if she was ill. She had her emergence pathologised and it was so internally violent for her that it cost her her life.
I don’t want to see that happen again.

Being someone who has always read mind/body/spirit books like they are going out of fashion, of course I’d heard of Hay House. I’ve also always admired the fact that Louise Hay started her own publishing house when she couldn’t find anyone to publish her book.
Some people call self-publishing ‘vanity publishing’ but I see it as being creative when you really believe in your message and are determined to help and inspire your tribe. With all the changes going on in traditional publishing it is also fast becoming the only option for many aspiring authors.
From my very first ‘vision board’ about 15 years ago Hay House were always on it. It wasn’t that I had a desperate desire to write a book and have it published by them, it was more that they represented for me the kind of open, courageous, authentic voice I longed to embody myself.

Just when you think you’ve got a handle on things life can shake your grip loose. Just when you’ve found some solid footing upon which to rebuild a life, the earth turns to sand and everything starts to shift all over again!
Oh the joys of an awakened life
Recently I faced another big transformational invitation one that has shaken me up and prompted me to let go all over again of everything I thought I knew. So many of you have emailed me recently (THANK YOU you are amazing) asking how I am and expressing your heartfelt concern so I didn’t want to keep you waiting before I let you know what is going on for me right now.

There seems to be a myth floating around in the spiritual world that one day when you’re awake and enlightened everything will be perfect and heavenly, you won’t feel any pain or ‘negative’ emotions and everything will be love and sparkles. At that point you can become a guru talking only about love and light and everyone can look up to you.

I’m a recovering people-pleaser. It’ll be something I need to stay aware of for the rest of my life. There isn’t a cure, I just need to manage it daily. It’s something I need to be conscious of every, single, day. Boundaries, assertiveness, self-care, selfhood, not hiding my light, saying no to others when I need to and saying a big juicy YES to myself. Without, apology.
