A Quick and Easy Guide to Colour Divination

I have posted my first new article on this site after what seems like an age…though in reality I am sure it can’t have been that long! :-)

Anyway, the article is called ‘A Quick and Easy Guide to Colour Divination’, and it can be found under the Book / Articles tab on the menu.

Hope you enjoy!


The Hermitess Within

sun through branchesIt is the hermitess within me that craves solitude and distance from my usual distractions and pattern of life.  A breaking with the norm.

Every so often she pulls me away and makes me readjust my focus.  She enjoys the quiet…the thinking and contemplating.

I wander a little during these times – figuratively speaking – although I do tend to spend even more time in nature than usual.

It isn’t a time to write and share – that comes later.  First I must think and experience, analyse my thoughts and seek out new sources of inspiration as well as reawaken my connection to old ones.  I search for guidance, seek answers, pose questions, read, study, ponder the direction I am heading in as well as my purpose.

It can be a challenging time, but then I remind myself that no-one said it would be easy.  Growth and development, knowledge and wisdom do not come for free.  Sometimes sacrifice is required.  Sometimes it can feel like no progress is being made.  Sometimes there is too much movement, at too great a pace.  It is unpredictable but the rewards for persevering make it worthwhile, if only one can stick with it.

I suppose this sort-of explains my little blog absence…

My little break away has been productive.  I have a new free course that I am working on at the moment, and I hope I will get around to posting it some time this month.  There are also a number of articles that I working on; some for this site but others I might try submitting further afield :-)  If anyone has any suggestions for where, I am all ears…

I also have a little gift for my cherished readers, which will be ready in the run-up to Samhain.  I won’t say any more for the moment…

So, I hope you have all had a great summer – or winter if you are in the southern hemisphere.

Symbol: Candle

The candle can be symbolic of a number of things, including a light in the darkness and a focus for the mind in times of quiet reflection.  It is also symbolic of the element of fire and thus the duality of creation and destruction.

If the candle as a symbol manifests itself in your life it may indicate that you will acknowledge the answer to a problem after a time of inner reflection.
