Putting on a cloak of light

June 20th, 2012 by Tonya

Ah! So that's it! I have become light. Everything's changed. Even the clothes I wear don't fit any more. They're either too big, too small or just plain wrong. I have put on a cloak of light. And all is as it is. Look around! See! Everyone's doing it. People are changing - changing structure; changing form Read More...

Something in the way she moves…

June 11th, 2012 by Tonya

I wrote a post last week on the recent Venus transit (June 5th/6th), something that has affected me quite powerfully, for reasons explained in this and some of my other blog posts. I spent much of the night of the event transfixed, watching the live streaming, being filmed by NASA from Mauna Kea in Hawaii Read More...

Bye bye, blackbird

June 7th, 2012 by Tonya

I’ve been experiencing an enhanced connection with our feathered friends in the past few weeks. Birds, that is. When I've been out and about, they've sometimes been hopping up close to me and watching me intently. I've sensed a kind of energetic 'openness' (more…)

Laughter best medicine for royalty too!

June 6th, 2012 by Tonya

Now you'll be hard pushed to find anyone who takes a less active interest in the Royals than I do - friends from abroad who ask me to remind them of the name of our future King are disappointed when I struggle to remember William's name. Or Kate's, for that matter. So I thought I'd contradict that pattern of disinterest on Jubilee Holiday Monday and visit a local village hall that was showcasing little-known photographs of the Queen taken by Royal photographer Jayne Fincher - and see if I could find a human side to the bunch that would enable me to become more interested in them Read More...

The Venus transit: a lesson in trust from the skies

June 5th, 2012 by Tonya

I love the way our subconscious minds, or 'higher selves' depending on how you look at it, attempt to communicate with us through symbols, images and the like, trying to draw our attention to something that could have meaning for us. In past weeks, for instance, images of five-pointed stars, roses and the word ‘Fibonacci’ have all been appearing before my inner eye Read More...

Accepting the path of love

June 5th, 2012 by Tonya

I'd say for me some of my biggest transformations in consciousness have been as a result of 'going to the heart of the fire' in my relationships. If you're prepared to 'go there' - to allow yourself to melt right into the heart of the love you feel, into the rawness of the passion, into the tenderness and vulnerability Read More...

Walking into the fire

June 4th, 2012 by Tonya

On the co-counselling course that I was running last week, the group asked me a question that really captured my imagination. We'd been doing some 'emotional training', accessing and exploring some core human emotions (fear, anger, sadness, joy...) and, to get a handle on these emotions and the subtleties that lay between them, we'd been using an 'emotional map' which I'd discovered a few days earlier in Gretchen Pyves' Co-Counselling Manual: 2nd Edition (1994) (which I've reproduced below) Read More...

A picture of complete surrender?

June 2nd, 2012 by Tonya

I'm going through a phase right now where a lot of my core 'patterns' are being triggered. Particularly those around abandonment and rejection. It's like many of the people that I care about or have a deep connection with are either leaving my life, going travelling or leaving the locality and becoming less accessible to me Read More...
