We can all bloom...
I have worked in many areas usually with my hands in different industries learning from the ground as I went, training in the moment. I always felt like an artist of sorts or a creative at least, painting and creating music when time allows. I have taught enthusiastic adult pupils how to play saxophone using an unorthodox intuitive body and aural based methods in as little as six 1 hour lessons from scratch. This diversity of life experience and sometimes crushing realities have embued me with a deep understanding of both the versatility and rigidness of peoples positions in their thinking, emotional and physical bodies.
I have studied through my life personally in my own time through reading, music, meditation, walks and quests as a source of comfort and inspiration, absorbing many teachings and perceptions written and presented by inspiring people from Caroline Myss to Eckhart Tolle and many more.
I have a passion for creativity, attention to detail, joy and exploration and part of my expression has tried to emerge for a long time through creative endeavours but never quite established. From a very early age I have been drawn to working through music and art as vehicles of expression and deep connection. As music became more important I always had a strong desire for the music to heal or touch people somehow in a way that would help them make sense of their lives. It became clear to me turning 50 that my journey has brought me to a long developing path for intuitive healing work. Those strong creative impulses with sound, music and creativity make sense to me now. Drawing on this understanding and life's trials and tribulations, insights and observations, my offering is to assist others to embrace their true nature that can be expressed in all they do in their lives as their unique divine signature.
Like our unique written signature I believe that we have a unique divine energetic signature that permeates all we are as we experience who we are in our human journey as part of a greater whole;
Our invitation is to awaken to this knowing, this relationship and proceed from this place of profound truth and express our unique beauty of who we are '..
While you won't see letters or accolades after my name, I have spent my life now 50 in training to be in a position of integrity, humility and compassion to be ready to offer this work.
From a very early age I followed my own intuitive path; curiously and sometimes out of necessity recreating my occupations and directions. There has always been a strong sense of spirit in all my endevours. Between the age of 11 and 15 I spent those years in boarding school and learnt deeply about myself and human behaviours'. This experience provided many insights and intuitive skills that underpin my awareness of people and conditions. At 16 I discovered yoga through a book I picked up in a shop (Easons' actually) and excitedly read it from cover to cover. It was full of wonder, crazy body positions and how yoga could open a way of understanding life so differently from a city western perspective. This has stayed with me to this day in an organic fashion, in that movement, breath and stretching (not necessarily strict postures or excercises) is always a resource of great support. Having been married and separated by the age of 26 with four children under the age of 9, when everything seemed screemingly out of control, yoga or at least my own version of it literally saved my sanity.'
It occured to me that if we are all one and are individuations of the divine, (which I must admit is a daily challenge to behold in the face of my ego especially when no one lets you out in the traffic!)
we are not here trying to figure out what's out there, rather we are out there trying to figure what's here..
