Day 52 of WFPB Lifestyle

It’s almost two months since the end of my 100 day juice fast. For all of my life before I have dieted, lost weight and then, in the space of a month or two, put it all back on again! I’m sure that if you have ever suffered with weight issues, you completely get what I’m talking about here! This time, after losing a massive amount of weight over the course of 100 days, something amazing has happened…I have not gained a single pound back over the past 52 days of eating! Not only that, but, I have continued to…

Irfan, Darkness, Light and Healing

(Starting with the Podcast will allow you to listen as you look through the photographs) Channelling is a skill that takes practice, eventually becoming an intuitive director of energy, good or bad. Yesterday, angry energy was channelled into this creation. As we channel energy from one place to another, so we work as alchemists in this world. Alchemy is a subject I have talked about in previously at Bealtaine Cottage…this little piece of Sacred Earth being itself changed in the most alchemical way by the Goddess of eternal change, Gaia. Above is a plant that holds the secret of healing……

Miraculous Recovery

Many of you are familiar with the tragedy recently encountered by Patrick and Jessica, both subscribers to Bealtaine Cottage and Bealtaine Cottage Good Life. The surge of good wishes, prayers and healing energy that was manifested by all of you, through Bealtaine Cottage, has led to a nothing short of a miracle being experienced on the other side of the Irish Sea! Patrick rang me this morning to tell me the wonderfully uplifting news! I asked Patrick to email a little of what he spoke of to me, so I could share this wonderful news with you all. These are…

Permaculture Works…A Ten Year Transformation!

Just over ten years ago I bought a derelict cottage standing on three acres of wet, rush-infested, north-facing land. This is how I transformed it, using only Permaculture and my own labour. See for yourself and share the magic! Year One…the pond and stream beds were dug and the water has flowed ever since! For the past fifteen or so years, Mother Earth has been communicating with us in a powerful and energetic way. She wants us to plant her, nurture her and most of all recognise her for the Great Mother she is. I heard her over ten years…

Today

The day starts in the dark…making late October mornings seem magical and filled with hope. Walking in the gardens to empty the ashes, open the hen house and collect kindling as the sun rises on this, my birthday. And later, a gift arrives from someone I used to share much of my life with…my ex-husband is now very supportive and appreciative of the work I do at Bealtaine. In fact, Bealtaine Cottage has become a place of healing, whether it be human rifts, environmental devastation or spiritual despair…the energy here takes it all in and rebalances the problem with copious…

The Magical and The Sacred

It is a rare thing…to be lost for words. A day in Autumn that changes one perspective on life and the meaning of it all. Where shall I begin? Perhaps where I started, this morning, camera in my dressing gown pocket and mug of hot coffee in my hand, traipsing out in rubber clogs onto grass saturated with morning dew. Or maybe, a little earlier, as this year began, immersed in deep sadness, as my mother made her own journey back to the Divine. But the Wheel, as they say, turns and the beauty of the Sacred overcomes the grief…
