The Fire of Imbolc 2020

IMBOLC is an ancient festival, one of the 4 great festivals of our ancestors celebrating the cycle of Life and Death: Imbolc, Pregnancy 1Feb, Bealtaine, New Life 1May, Lúnasa, Harvest 1Aug and Samhain, Death 1Nov.

Life is everchanging

Life is ever changing, stretching, reimagining itself and it feels to me today, as the balance tips in favour of brighter days in the northern hemisphere, that we all are invited to fulfill our true potential of unimaginable proportions by befriending the wave of change that is our essence. Today this video for me marksContinue reading “Life is everchanging”

Deep down we all aspire to be the best that we can be, we all aspire to live the best life we can live. Right now we may feel very frustrated because its not flowing, there are complications, hold ups. I wanted to write to you to reassure you that all is ok. Sometimes weContinue reading “Sometimes we have to go backwards to move forward.”

Calling all Singers & Musicians, Male & Female

  My voyage through the world of music, sound, song and dance continues. My true sound has been dormant long and is slowly re-emerging. My lifes purpose can be described in part: to share with people everywhere, the song and dance of my mind and body, heart and soul I’m looking for singers and musicians to joinContinue reading “Calling all Singers & Musicians, Male & Female”

IS IT THE CASE ?

On Thursday morning 10 July 2014, I woke completely unaware I was celebrating Thor, the God Of Thunder (whyever he got such good press, I don’t know), and found that I could not remember the specific dream I had…. and then as I wrote I asked myself ‘but what of the great on-going dream…..’     Continue reading “IS IT THE CASE ?”

IT’S ALWAYS ME

No matter what I do, where I go, who I meet, what age I am, what I call myself, whether I succeed or fail, I always seem to be the same person. This sea is crossed, that mountain is climbed, this is where I live, that is where I used to live, this depression isContinue reading “IT’S ALWAYS ME”

May

I continue to be amazed at the great winds of energy that blow through me during the great Celtic/pre-Christian festivals of the year. Bealtaine for me, which I have written about in a recent blog was no exception. On the first of May, I renewed my commitment to music, to which the universe responded to by sendingContinue reading “May”

Bealtaine

Why am I drawn so much to these ancient festivals of life. I don’t know. But I do know I love the ritual, the symbolic marking of a change in the seasons. I feel it in my bones, which im getting in touch with much more these days. I feel in my heart. The sunsContinue reading “Bealtaine”

Summer solstice manifested a fantastic song called ‘I can’t fly’ inspiredContinue reading “The power in the changing of the seasons.”

Voices In My Head

She spoke of her childhood abuse, hearing disturbing voices in her head as a young adult, dealing with psychiatric misdiagnosis and further abuse and thru the help of compassionate loving people finding the power within to healContinue reading “Voices In My Head”

Breath

‘I wont be holding my breath.’ ‘Breathtaking.’ ‘Take a breather.’ ‘Save your breath.’ All these common phrases suggest lives lived in tension, high in the chest, keeping control of the breath. We breathe as little as possible for fear of something too blissful too wonderful, too electrifying, too magnetic, too much like heaven. Breathe easyContinue reading “Breath”

The Light

I post this message from my mountain retreat in the Glen of Aherlow, Tipperary. The light is fading and the sounds of distant motors are ever present. The clouds brush along the ridge of ancient Crotta Cliach. The light is still fading. What then do I need? Only to breathe and smile, be and receive,Continue reading “The Light”

The Power Game

To paraphrase Marianne Williamson, it’s not my darkness I’m most afraid of (I’ve been fumbling freely about in the dark for many years now) it’s my light. To paraphrase Jesus, instead of loving my light and placing it on the table top for all to see, I’ve hidden it from view. This has been changing, graduallyContinue reading “The Power Game”

Worship

YOU ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD!

Matthew 5:14-16 English Standard Version (ESV) “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shineContinue reading “YOU ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD!”

I AM

I am the sun that dances through the skies, bouncing on the moon, a mavericks high noon I am that moon too, I am, and though I’ve forgotten why, I’ve shoved and pushed and kicked myself higher and higher in the sky, tired I am the day which I now shall stretch and the treesContinue reading “I AM”

The Body’s Bursting with New Life Again (ode to the spring equinox 2013)

It is said by some that at such times as these, ie the changing of the seasons, the veil between the seen and unseen, the world and the underworld, the human and the little people, becomes more transparent….a time of heightened energy. In recent months I have become very interested in the old irish ‘feel’Continue reading “The Body’s Bursting with New Life Again (ode to the spring equinox 2013)”

Inner Peace

If you can start the day without caffeine, If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains, If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles, If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it, If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy toContinue reading “Inner Peace”
