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...
What the Earthquakes in New Zealand Taught me about Fear

What the Earthquakes in New Zealand Taught me about Fear

In February 2011, there was a large earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand. I was living in Christchurch at the time. I moved to Christchurch in June 2010 to work at a language school in the city centre-I only ended up staying a couple of months at the language school but continued to live in Christchurch. The earthquake was of course very traumatic. I think the most traumatic thing about an earthquake is that something so powerful can come along in an instant, possibly destroying your home or your livelihood and if you are unlucky, it can kill you too....
My Journey Recovering from Abuse & Codependence and Why I Try to Be as Real as Possible on my Blog

My Journey Recovering from Abuse & Codependence and Why I Try to Be as Real as Possible on my Blog

One of the things I try to do in writing on my blog about my experiences and lessons in life is that I like to be real. I try to counter what I talked about in my last article about our culture being narcissistic and based on appearances. That we are shallow, we try to keep up with the Joneses, paste on a smile and say we’re OK. These behaviours above serve us in some ways because we don’t necessarily want to spill our guts to people we don’t know. It gives us privacy and the right to project...

I am not a city girl

All my life I believed that if I go some place else, things will get better, and everything in life will click into place. This feeling kept me on the move for a long time. I went from Oxford, to France, to Spain, to Bristol, to Spain, to London, to Australia, to New Zealand, to Australia and back to New Zealand in the space of six years. I don’t actually enjoy the process of travelling. My favourite thing in the world is to be home, sleeping in my own bed, cooking my own food, tending to my own garden....
