Hello! Well, it’s been a bit of a whirlwind, but we made it to Tenerife and are in the midst of getting settled and sorted. We still don’t have internet yet, hence the late post from an internet cafe. Things take their own sweet time here, but we should have wifi installed within a week or so.
As we begin to Continue reading
Feeling nurtured and nourished is part of Sacral chakra balance. Last Thursday, I took part in the Samhain (Celtic New Year) Sweatlodge at Lendrick Lodge. An incredible ceremony, led by Stephen Mulhearn and Greg ‘Woody’ Gruber, who is the chief of the fire at the world’s largest Lakota Sundance on the reservation in South Dakota, USA. The Sweatlodge is like returning to the womb, to connect with God, The Creator, The Universe, whatever term you prefer. Continue reading
Well, you’ve stuck with us all the way up and all the way down the rainbow bridge. Phew. Thanks for coming along Knowing that there were people rooting for us along the way has made all the difference and I don’t think the trip would have been the same without the emails, the comments and the messages we’ve received. They always seemed to come at just the right minute; those moments when we were tired or doubting ourselves or wondering if our dreams were too big. One of you would get in touch to say you liked something we’d written, how it had made a difference to you in some way or someone would ‘like’ a photo or post on facebook. Continue reading
Stability, home-life and the element Earth are important to Root Chakra health. If you’ve been blessed from the start, with a solid supportive base to leap from, you’re more able to move steadily forward in life, with confidence. You can enjoy living and loving, never doubting that there will be someone or something there to catch you if you fall or jump in a treacherous direction. You can go through life’s different stages, not really worrying about the possibility of anyone tripping you up or pulling the rug from under you. You have an inner knowing that, even if they do, it won’t crumble you and you’ll get up and dust yourself off. You know you have a right to exist, to be on this earth, just as you are, and you feel supported by it. You feel at home, wherever you are. Continue reading

Transformation and measured self-discipline are important for solar plexus balance. Often, we talk about the changes we want to make, the things we’re going to do, the people we’re going to become but it can be so tricky to actually follow through and do what’s needed in order to achieve our goals, especially in the midst of life’s stresses and strains. In our journey down to the solar plexus from the crown, we can start a kind of chain reaction that helps us transform and achieve at the Solar plexus. No matter what type of transformation or goal you are focused on, it still works in the same way. Continue reading
When we balance the heart chakra, we learn to balance giving and receiving, we find out what we truly care about in life and we feel safe to open up to others without fear. If the heart chakra is too open, it can be helpful to work on strengthening the energy of the surrounding chakras. Attempting to specifically calm down your heart chakra can feel too uncomfortable for people who are naturally giving. It might feel alien to purposely reduce energy at the heart chakra, even if we know that there’s an excess. Continue reading
Freedom of expression and the element of sound are important for throat chakra balance. Achieving harmony and finding the right flow of energy at the throat chakra can make it much easier to navigate our way through life, feeling at ease when communicating with ourselves and others. Balancing talking with listening, knowing when to speak up and when to stay silent. The colour that resonates with this chakra point is sky blue. Continue reading
This week’s post is extra long and jam-packed with photos. If you’ve got time, make some hot chocolate, pull up a chair and come on a virtual 3rd eye Caribbean daytrip with us! If not, just dip in and out of it over the week. Remember to let us know if you have any comments, opinions or suggestions.
Imagination is key to 3rd Eye balance. Imagination is the key that opens the doors of possibility, transformation and the ability to create a different world. In fact, according to many shamanic belief systems around the world, we are all unconsciously dreaming up the world we live in today, with nature and the environment responding accordingly, every minute of every day. This ‘dreaming’ is not just about night-time sleeping dreams, but refers to what we would usually call ‘waking hours’ as well. You can see from some of the negative things that go on in the world today – hunger, poverty, war, isolation, fear, hatred, greed, pollution etc. etc. that it’s definitely time for a change.
