Time for a bit of spring cleaning?

April 8th, 2018 by Tonya

Do you ever have 'nitty gritty days' - the kind of days where you wake up in the morning and just know that what you need to do  - before you can do anything else in a truly aligned, authentic kind of way - is pick up each thing - in your inner and outer world - and polish it until it shines? That's what today feels like to me. Sometimes, before I scrub up or dust an item, I'll need to examine it a little closer: Does it belong in my life right now? (If not, it goes in 'recycle'). And if it does fit my world, I need to check in with myself on whether it needs mending, cleaning.... or just a really good polish? And when I've tended and polished it care-full-y, I then ask whether the item is where it needs it to be, in my life at the moment - or does it need to be moved from inside that dark cupboard under the stairs to take pride-of-place on my sitting room windowsill, for instance? When I'm doing work like this, I'm under no illusion that what I'm really doing is working on my inner world Read More...

Learning to ride the cosmic wave

January 31st, 2018 by Tonya

Life's pretty character-forming down here, at the moment, isn't it? It's like we are collectively being 'pushed to the edge', forced to confront ourselves and the way we are living our lives, by the dramatic and radical events - both natural and otherwise - that are happening on our dear planet. This hasn't of course been 'scientifically proven' of course, but for me it's like the evolutionary pulse of humanity is speeding up - and as part of this process, all the unprocessed 'debris' within us is being pushed to the surface Read More...

Turning crisis into opportunity

January 24th, 2018 by Tonya

When our souls really begin to shine through in all their power and glory there can be no stopping us. At least that's the way I see it right now. And sometimes this manifests first as seemingly insurmountable circumstances in our lives. Take for instance one coaching client of mine - a truly powerful soul Read More...

Be your own snowflake

January 8th, 2018 by Tonya

I found myself walking around my first crop circle last summer, somewhere near Avebury in Wiltshire. I wasn't sure what I would feel before I visited it, but in the event, walking around the site and picking up clear energetic patterns through my feet and energy field and some profound intuitive messages about its origin revealed to me without any doubt that this was not something that some farmer or opportunistic hoaxer had created Read More...

January 1st, 2018 by Tonya

May the blessing of Flow Ripple through your life This New Year May Synchronicity And Serendipity be your treasured friends May the path unfold before you Like a golden carpet At each fork in the road, May inner knowing light your way May divine inspiration bless your mornings, noons and even-times And kindness and tenderness every connection and every partnership May you always have a friend Who loves your soul With which to share your dearest moments And when you do not May you learn to enjoy each delight in the Tender blessing of Your own heart Wishing you a blessed year <3

Time to shine our light!

December 22nd, 2017 by Tonya

If I asked you to look back over the past year and tell me whether this has been a 'landmark' or 'watershed' year for you, or whether it has been a bit 'same-old, same-old', I'd like to bet that most of you would say it has been the former. With a certain US president pretty much holding the world to ransom with his outlandish actions and ideas - which seem so at odds with the interests of most of the people on the planet; with natural disasters reaching alarming levels and with the reality of climate change becoming ever harder to ignore - and for any number of other reasons, a lot of us would agree that we have reached some sort of crunch point Read More...

How do you deal with uncomfortable emotion?

December 8th, 2017 by Tonya

Something really struck a chord on Day 3 of our last co-counselling training course. We had constructed an 'emotional wall map' and group members were plotting the various feelings we experienced, as individuals, along two axes of 'positive/negative emotion' and 'high/low intensity emotion' - and we labelled these feelings according to what felt authentic to us (it didn't have to fit into any other person's model of what a particular feeling was called) Read More...

Want to change the world? Change your consciousness.

November 8th, 2017 by Tonya

I've witnessed a lot of finger-pointing recently. You know, the kind of situation where one person, unwilling to face up to his own part in creating a particular situation, blames life/ 'the universe', the government, whoever for what is going on. It often stems, it would seem to me, from the person feeling vulnerable about - or powerless to change - something in her life - that she can't 'control' things around her Read More...
