Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Around this time last year, I was driving through a heavy snowstorm, making my way up to the Scottish Highlands. I had never driven in such heavy snow before, and it was 30 mph all the way up the motorway. It was totally enchanting to see the pine trees on the roadside laden with snow, and the big, fat snowflakes coming towards me at a furious rate. This year I have spent the holiday season in Northland, New Zealand. And the contrast between the Northern Hemisphere in winter and the Southern Hemisphere in summer is so great that from...

What I Have Learned on my Travels over the Last 365 Days…

My students and readers sometimes ask me where I am in the world these days. I have been feeling a bit disconnected from readers of this blog, and so I wanted to give some updates on my adventures over the last year. Twelve months ago I moved back to the UK after 6.5 years in New Zealand. Amongst other reasons, I wanted a change and was tired of the earthquakes that we had had in the south island since 2010. I set off in mid-October 2015 (just as we were coming into spring in NZ.) Although it was not...
26 Things About Me

26 Things About Me

I know that sometimes people like to read a little bit about the person behind the website, and my ‘about’ page isn’t very long, so I have compiled a list of random facts about me… *********************** 1. I am a British citizen but I finally got my New Zealand residency last month. It took me a good few years to get. I love New Zealand’s friendly people, clean towns and countryside, and weather. I am not sure if I will always live here all year round, but I am glad to have residency anyway. Here are some photos I...
Connecting with the Dead Through Dreams, Synchronicities & Mediumship

Connecting with the Dead Through Dreams, Synchronicities & Mediumship

Nine months ago, my beloved cat Big Boy passed away. I had never lost anyone so close to me before (at least not through death) and I was devastated. Fellow pet owners will know what I’m talking about – the bond between a person and their companion animal can be a very strong one. (I am also a huge, crazy cat lover on the scale of the woman in this YouTube video, which made us even more bonded… 🙂 ) Since then, I have had a lot of interesting experiences connecting with Big Boy from the other side, and...
Do You Sometimes Ignore Your Intuition?

Do You Sometimes Ignore Your Intuition?

During a recent road trip to Christchurch I picked up some hitchhikers. We shared past hitchhiking experiences and agreed that it’s extremely important to use one’s intuitive faculties when accepting a ride from a stranger. These women told me they were hitchhiking around New Zealand and had had positive experiences except for one: They were offered a ride from someone who had given them bad vibes. Neither of the women wanted to offend the driver by rejecting the offer of a ride, and neither of them knew the other was not too keen on accepting it, so they both...

Have You Ever Wished You Were More Like Someone Else?

“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” — Albert Einstein In my early twenties, when I graduated from University, I had no idea what I was going to do with the rest of my life, career wise. I knew I was good at foreign languages but I didn’t want to be a translator (because in my opinion it was boring and repetitive work) nor did I want to be teaching French and Spanish to high school kids. I...
