Subway Karma

I am starting to believe that every little thought and action, no matter how small, has an echo, a response from the universe.  Every little act of generosity, every little act of grumpiness or negativity pings back at us almost immediately.  I suspect once you start to look for it, you’ll start noticing too.  My…

Everyday Karma

I used to think karma played out over a large time span, maybe over several lives.  And during my past-life regression in 2014, I certainly got to see how my bad behavior in one past life, hitting someone over the head with a stone (admittedly after they killed my baby), eerily played out in this…

One Love

The hardest thing to get my head around spiritually is the idea that we are all one.  It makes perfect sense sitting on my meditation cushion when I’m all Ommm and Zen, but out in the street…well not so much. But recently I’ve tried something,  a simple little act that has been shining up the…

The Energy of Things

A dear friend of mine, a celebrated British fashion designer, once told me that she never bought vintage clothes because she didn’t want ‘to get jangled up by other people’s energy’.  I never found old clothes or even old furniture a problem. However I do get weird energy off antique jewelry, and I think I…

Sedona

I am back in Sedona.  I cut my New Mexico trip short to be back here among the red rocks, trippy energy and upbeat people (even the check out assistants here smile like THEY are on vacation). It is funny, Laura and I had talked about moving to Santa Fe, but neither of us had…

Sedona

On an English hike the worst thing that can happen is you step in cow dung. In America there’s stuff that bites.  I love nature. I am just not used to big, wild, ‘tooth and claw’ American nature. So when a girlfriend and I spotted a plump snake on a hiking trail in California, we…

Good Vibrations

I used to visit a Chinese energy healer in New York who liked to say: ‘Western doctor no good. Learn body by studying corpse. Not learn nothing. All energy gone.’ I think he was right. I am pretty sure the essence of life (and healing) is energy. Laura and I’s love affair was essentially well…

Soul Journey – part two

Woo hoo, I’ve been leaping around my apartment like someone in a bouncy castle all day. I am so happy.  I am off to Sedona (Arizona) and New Mexico starting Monday. I’ve been dreaming of vortices and want to bathe in that special energy again. Four years ago, I made a quick stop at Sedona…

Loving Laura

Laura is very present to me now as a powerful and comforting spiritual presence.  If you’ve been reading this blog you’ll know that since Laura passed I’ve been seeing firefly-like lights, hearing words of encouragement in my head and experiencing our computers and iPods suddenly play our favorite songs. And I am delighted to report…

My Dear Mum

It has been quite the year. First my very dear mum, who has enfolded me in love all her life, had a stroke in the fall of 2012, then my soul mate Laura was diagnosed with melanoma of the cervix in May 2013. And now this Thursday, September 5th, my mum is going to have…
