have always been a bit of a philosopher at heart. I am
curious about most things and especially about how the
world, the universe, and everything in it - including
people - works.
I like to help people find the best in themselves so that
they can be empowered to live lives of peace and
I think that the process of becoming more fully aware,
and thus more fully in control of your life and who you
are being, is partly a sensual experience. Your senses
become enhanced and your sense of excitement about life
grows as you engage fully with it.
Balance of mind, body, and spirit can
be found in many ways -
* nature is a good healer in itself,
* so is getting plenty of exercise and having a good diet
and plenty of water,
* so is meditation - and many other spiritual practices
* so is finding a way to do the things you love doing
rather than feeling stuck in a job you don't like or with
people you don't like,
* spiritual healing, life coaching, counselling, and
other therapies can all help people to find a route to
I find that our minds can be used as
tools so that we can help ourselves by
* Observing and appreciating beauty - and by making it a
habit to do so, using as many of your senses as possible.
* Obtaining pleasure from your active experience of
living your life - witnessing yourself and your
interaction with the world around you in an honest but
positive way. Be prepared to laugh at yourself too!
Lightness and laughter are great helpers.
* Learning about things that work for you - and then
* Focusing on the positives - along with forgiveness and
gratitude - rather than letting any negative issues keep
any sort of grip on you,
* Planning for the future so that you don't obsess about
it or get caught up in disproportionate worries about it,
and can go with the flow that we are ourselves creating
along with the universe.
(Even making lists instead of trying to remember
everything frees up your mind to do more useful things,
but life coaching has particular ways to help you define,
and plan to achieve, your goals.)
* Understand that you are the master of your own destiny
- then set your intentions - make your own choices
I find great enjoyment in the small
things in life -
* I love walking, dancing, music, watching the natural
world, etc - and I believe that this might require some
sort of sensuality, or at least a nurturing of our
* Feeling the sun on your skin, the rhythms of the music,
dancing, or playing an instrument, singing, swimming,
walking, doing yoga or tai chi, making love - all allow
us to experience the joy of our bodies working as they
are meant to - healthily - in turn creating joy,
laughter, appreciation of the amazing bodies that we have
* Expressing joy creatively - writing stories, poems,
songs, painting, taking photos, working with flowers,
decorating a home - is another way to enhance the
satisfaction obtainable from beauty. (Even just watching
something, you can breathe deeply with joy, drink in the
experience, savour the expression of participation in
* Meditation, reading, watching films or plays, and other
more contemplative activities are also great.
I have heard it said that we should
trust in the unseen, the unheard, the timeless.
I agree with this, as we know for sure that there is more
out there than we can ever fully know.
Once you feel okay with yourself in the world, it is
easier to trust in this stuff, to not fear it, but know
that everything will be okay. Also, if we are not too
caught up in little worries and can see the bigger
picture, then we are partly detached enough to feel part
of that bigger picture, and feel safe in it, even if we
cannot know all the details.
I am lucky enough to be able to say that I can actually
see a lot of what others would call the 'unseen'. hear a
lot of what others would call the 'unheard', and feel at
least a sense of the 'timelessness'. I guess this makes
me clairvoyant, clairaudient, and clairsentient, but I
prefer not to dwell on this - I just do what I do - to
the best of my ability to help others. (I do not like to
be called psychic, even though I can divine and heal - I
prefer not to be associated with a lot of the stuff that
tends to be associated with psychics.) All my work is at
a very fine level. It feels light and natural - I prefer
to call it intuition.
Intuition is something we are all born with, but tend to
lose as we grow up into our complex mechanistic world,
where things generally need to be tangible and provable.
I liken the extra-sensory skills I use, to just being
able to tune into slightly more frequencies on the
spectrum - as if I can get stations beyond what would
normally show on a radio tuner.
Going back to the word 'sensuality' - feeling connected
to the wider world and universe around you feels just
great! There is such a sense of love, joy, and peace -
out there - beyond the muddle and noise of our busy
lives, striving to prove ourselves in a system of someone
else's making. We all have a connection to that still
ground of being that we originate from, even if a lot of
us have lost the ability to feel it. If we have forgotten
our link to this, and thus our interconnection with
everyone and everything, then we can feel very lost.
Awakening to it once more is the most wonderfully joyous
feeling, like coming home into open arms, where you feel
supported, and safe.
Philosophy is far too big a subject to cover here
altogether, but I have found my own system - one that
works for me. I can experience life in an optimum way,
and hopefully help others to do so. Having spent my whole
life learning what I wanted to know - I would now love to
be able to share all of that with you. And of course, I
will continue to journey and learn more as I go, largely
through helping others, and always questioning if what I
think works does still work, plus finding out new ways of
working to solve new queries that are always bound to
come up, because each of us are unique, with unique
views, seeking unique solutions.
