This weekend I was talking to my sister about play.
And we realised that as adults we spend A LOT of time being serious.
We go to work. We exercise. We walk. We shop. We eat. We walk the dog.
And that's not to say that these activities weren't enjoyable and even relaxing ... but where is the playfulness in all of that?
I just got a new pair of super-sleek and sexy green gumboots (from Merry People - I'll put their website link at the end).
And I said to Marnie ... "Okay, in honour of playing more ... I'm going to the beach right now, to play in the water!"
You can watch the video on my Facebook page - link is at the bottom of this page.
And while I was playing on the beach I came across a HUGE red starfish.
When I got home I looked up what the message was in Dr Stephen Farmer's Animal Spirit Guides book and it said:
Starfish means ...
-Keep your senses open to the new opportunities that are about to appear, and trust your intuition about which are the right ones to take advantage of.
-In spite of what others say, do things the way you want to even if it’s unusual or different from how most people would do them.
-There’s no need to hurry, so take your time getting where you want to go.
-In spite of any recent losses, trust that you’ll fully recover and start anew.
-Someone in your circle of friends or family is in need of your compassionate understanding.
-Meditate on the felt connection to All-That-Is and your place on earth and in the cosmos.
Often the simple things that you enjoyed as children or teenagers are what can light you up, give you confidence and have lots of fun. When you are a child you are curious, playful, full of optimism, resilient, and spontaneous.
So ... I invite you to take the PLAY CHALLENGE this month ...
Go to a playground and play on the swings, slide & monkey bars
Go to a grassy spot and lie down to do some cloud-watching
Go to the beach with no shoes on and build sandcastles
Go out in the rain and jump in some puddles
Go to your local icecream / gelato shop and buy your favourite flavour
What else could you do? It's your playtime ...

Thought you might like this 3-card spread for the New Moon from Yasmin Boland's new Moonology oracle card deck.
Do this spread at the time of the New Moon or as soon after it as you can, before it changes phases. The New Moon is a time for new starts. As you select the cards this about the coming month and ask the Divine to guide you to cards that will help you understand the energies that lie ahead. The layout will also work if you ask a specific question about the month ahead.
Card 1 - What's rising up in me?
Card 2 - The main message this New Moon
Card 3 - The final outcome
These are the cards that I pulled for my tribe ... Watch the video here: https://fb.watch/1fiy9JUmU9/
Card 1. Show the world the real you - full moon in Aquarius ♒️
Every full moon is a time to release and let go but the addition of Aquarius energy to the mix triples that message. Aquarius is the opposite of clingy and pulling this card at any time suggests either you need to let go or someone is thinking they are the ones who need to let go - perhaps of you. What needs to go? What is the right thing to do? Whatever happens next could be highly unconventional or unexpected.
Card 2. A new start is coming - new moon 🌑
The new moon marks the start of the waxing cycle and the mid-point of the dark moon. It’s a dark and veiled time, when the moon is invisible, and a time of rebirth. It’s a time that witches do their work, making wishes, and laying down intentions for a new cycle; an intensely magical time, when it’s easier to pierce the veil to other worlds.
Card 3. A fiery climax approaches - full moon in Aries ♈️
The full moon in Aries is a super fiery Tim, when emotions can run very high. On the upside, there is excitement about what may lie ahead, but tempers may flare, with rash comments or decisions. No matter when you pull this card, it signals that the situation has just, or is about to, come to a peak, perhaps in a rather heated way. There could be a price to pay if you have been too competitive or too blunt.
You can book a full reading at a time that suits you on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday via my online booking system:
For centuries the shamans and healers have prescribed using the light and energy of the moon during all the phases to realign and rebalance.
The moon has powerful magical energies not only to affect the tides.
Full moon - is the time for releasing and letting go.
New moon - is the time for setting intentions and manifesting desires.
You can tap into the moon energy too.
Try this very simple Moon Infusion Meditation:
Settle into a comfortable position preferably somewhere that the moonlight is resting on you.
Start by taking some deep cleansing breaths. Deep breath in through your nose. And out through your mouth.
Imagine the Moon above you in this moment. The glorious size, the shape, the brightness, the reflective light, and the energy that washes over you.
Let this powerful cosmic energy affect your physical body. Notice where it chooses to settle first. Notice which areas seem to be affected most by its intensity.
As you lay in the light of the moon, allow the energy to wash away any and all tension you hold in your body.
Surrender. Surrender to the energy.
With every exhale offer something new up to this glorious Moon before you.
Notice yourself getting lighter and lighter. Leaving room — space — for the energy that serves you.
That moon energy nourishes you.

It’s the new trendy thing ... but it’s not a new concept. Journalling has been around for centuries. Anyone who has a thought they wanted to preserve, journaled. Explorers. Queens. Writers. Teachers. Poets. Comedians. Lawyers. Parents. Activists. Students. Lovers.
The list goes on and on.
Nowadays it’s not just a notes on paper thing. Digital journals are becoming more popular.
And for those of you who don’t think you can write, how about speaking into a transcriber app or using the voice memos on your phone.
Journalling has been romanticised as just for young lovers writing mushy prose about their beloved. But it has a powerful effect when you dive into a thought or feeling or situation, and discover something profound about yourself. Transformation happens when the unconscious becomes conscious.
And there are many ways to journal.
It could be intuitive prose that flows from the pen (or finger) like water from a glistening waterfall.
It could be automatic writing to explore the feelings on a particular topic.
It could be creative fiction writing to play our a scene wished for in real life, to see how you feel.
It could be rhyming poetry that is fun and light and lifts the mood. Or dark and twisty for delicious relief.
It could be “I feel” statements ... that give your unconscious Self a chance to express itself.
It could be the lyrics of a song, with music to match, to find a deeper level of connection.
It could be a ‘word map’ ... a collection of words that describe a situation or dream or feeling.
It could be a collage of words cut out from magazines to create a vision board.
It could be drawing coloured swirls and symbols that represent feelings of people or experiences.
Whatever way you are guided to journal is perfect.
Do it your way. Be your own way finder.
It’s your life ... and your journal, after all.
My latest project is a Spiritual Journal with 11 other collaborators ... we have come together to offer 12 different ways to journal, so you can find the way(s) that suit you. ENJOY A FULL YEAR OF UNIQUE JOURNALING EXPERIENCES!
Every month is written and designed by a highly inspirational and influential leader in the spiritual space. They have each crafted their unique way of journaling for you to explore and learn in ways you never have before.
What's in it? ... well there is Numerology, Archetypes, Angels, Mindfulness, Mediumship, Ancestoral Healing and lots more.
The Spiritual Journal will be available on 23rd October 2020.

I know I'm connected to the Source and I know I am part of the flow of the Universe and I know that I am the orchestrater of that flow - not just a canoe on the river. I AM THE RIVER!
And I am the earth and the sky and the trees and the animals and the crytals and the rain and the grass.
You cannot separate us all.
The All is the One.
The One is the All.
The All is Oneness.
I can feel that knowing deeply.
I can be connected to that Oneness and do the human things that are to be done.
I can be connect and ALSO be human.
Spirit is flowing through everything.
There is a very clear and healthy balance that can be set to embrace the Spirit in all things.
If I get disconnected (or pinched off) I can easily recentre.
I know how.
I have done it many times.
It's a simple breath and STOP DOING and refocus on BEING.
NO "just do one more thing".
I am completely honouring me and in doing that I am honour Source and my Soul.
Soul is home.
All things come back to that essence.
In the beginning there was Source and we are all part of that essence.
Bringing this awareness into my day is the purpose of my life.
