The truth is in here

October 31st, 2014 by Tonya

Do you remember that X Files catchphrase: 'The truth is out there'? It always used to irk me somewhat, because for me, the truth is not out there, it's in here (in us!) And it seems to me that this truth is more available to us now than it has ever been (though I think there are forces at work in society that keep us from discovering this reality for ourselves)! There are also of course forces within us that habitually look for the truth 'out there' - in teachers, gurus and authority figures - we're so keen to give our own power away! Nowhere is this more evident than in discussions about the 'second coming' that are proliferating in these times Read More...

Building bridges between old and new

People often ask me what Little White Feather is about. It’s a good question and one I often find difficult to answer.

I have a new coaching client who's teaching me a lot about change and transformation. It's plain to see that her soul wants so much to take this opportunity (called 'life') and unfold into her full magnificence. This lifetime! She's quite clear about this! And she wonders why, at a physical and practical level, everything is falling apart in her life Read More...

Learning to embrace the changing seasons

October 14th, 2014 by Tonya

I had a couple I know round to dinner last night. They were about to decamp to Portugal for the winter (they have a holiday home there and neither of them enjoy the English winters). One of them said to me, 'You quite like the winter, don't you, Tonya?' and it made me think, yes, I guess I do (as much as I do all the other seasons, that is!) The way I see things, though, is that if we cease fighting something, whatever it is - let go of all resistance – and see it (and feel it) the way it really is - whether it's winter, the cold Read More...
