Martenitsa

Today 1 March, in Bulgaria and other neighbouring countries they celebrate spring in a festival called Martinetsa. People give gifts called martenitsi. They are red and white tassels which are adorned with different charms for good fortune, worn as bracelets, necklaces, brooches, hung on trees, in the home, workplace or anywhere one wishes. There are many theories about the origins of the festival. This is mine. White symbolises purity, divinity, the masculine. Red symbolises life, passion, the feminine. The festival is a call from the deepest parts of ourselves for the unity between both, for we know only too well that this is the only way to ensure good fortune for all, and so we know no better way to call on good fortune as we celebrate the coming of new life in spring 💟 Thank you Bulgaria for all the inspiration 💟 And so I send you a wish today. May the masculine and feminine be united in harmony within you here on earth, in the flesh of your body, now and forever more and it is so 💟

In 2005 i had a profound spiritual experience leading me to record my debut album, ‘Under the Great Shady Tree’. I have faced depression, sadness, anger, jealousy, guilt, sexual craving, loss, grief, disapproval, fear, loneliness and many other emotions and have found the strength within to keep going. In 2015 i had another profound spiritual experience which opened my heart wider still, and allows me today to see that everything we experience is here to help us. Featuring different topics each week, inspirational speakers, dancers, singers and musicians, I am creating a Live WebTv Channel to celebrate love, to show you how i face, how i relate to all the difficult emotions that arise and how to love them too, to show you how to live a life of joy and ease no matter how you feel about your relationships, your sex, your family, your finances, your career, your diet, your health. I am confident that you possess a great power within. Come with me and together with others around the globe, at a pace that’s appropriate for you, lets explore this power together.
