The choice of Love over fear

You met me when I was a seed, 
blowing uncertain in the breeze…

But now I am a tree, 
growing high to the heavens, 
my roots in the ground
Bridge between heaven and earth
My eyes on the sky

And I wonder, will you grow by my side?
For you, you are a tree
Reaching to the stars
And I feel your strength
And I feel your purpose
And I feel ready, with nothing to hide
As I open and surrender 
My heart expanding above,
Unafraid, and filled
with Love

* * *

My prayer is that we always remember to choose Love over Fear. 
The choice is in our Hearts.
And it requires us to let go...
let go of our stories that block us from the Truth
that is ready to shine, to blaze forth...

that in the end, in the end there is only Love

may we remember
may we remember
may we remember

the choice is in your hands

I hope you enjoy this improvised jam & channelled poetry with my dear friends Miguel and Alex, at Indigena Café – a small batch chocolate making shop and Eco-Social business located right by the Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve, on the southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica.

A beautiful new collaboration and community space is unfolding and blooming here on Thursday mornings. I am grateful to Gianni for his love and openness, allowing me to share my stories, poetry, and music in this beautiful place, to inspire love and magic, that we may shine through the darkness in this world.

Tomorrow I will be setting off on a travel to visit the Ngobe Indigenous Community who Gianni works with, in the south of Costa Rica. My heart is full of excitement and love, to connect with the indigenous peoples of this land, and connect deeper with the sacred heart-opening medicine of Cacao.

I wish you a beautiful week, full of love.


In Loving Presence…

Through the trees; 
a pathway, glimpsed,
my eyes
slicing between the overgrowth,
that had hidden the road 
back to You — 

brambles, had layered
my trembling heart 
fearful to open again,

and a heart that had seen you 
not for who you are today
but who you’d been
in moments, brief moments 
mere moments

in comparison to all the beauty 
we’d share through 

indeed —
perhaps in other dimensions 
we’d roamed

And I realise now,
this yearning deep
to simply forget the illusion —

to let go
of those doubts,
what in truth is so
sweet and

to radiate
from my entire Being
and shower you;
tears of joy, flowing
from an eternal Source of
as I bear witness 
to the beauty of our Souls
cleansed by the tides
of Love


May we learn to keep coming back to loving presence.

Keep coming back to this moment, here and now, and see the beauty in it: just as it is, as we learn to find gratitude in, and appreciate, all that we have in this second.

May we find the love within ourselves, that we may experience endless love around. Take a moment to nourish yourself, care for yourself: surrender and relax, into your own presence. Perhaps treat yourself by learning to cook a new healthy but indulgent dessert (I have been mixing up the recipe for my cacao balls, my favourite variation is now a date + macadamia nut base!), or make a homemade face mask with oatmeal and honey.

I wish you a beautiful day, and closing of the week, full of love.

The Treasure Within Your Heart

Sometimes, all of us has to be burnt away; in order for the new to rise.
And so, too, in relationship.

But that doesn’t mean it’s an ending;
simply a rebirth, the flames so strong 
and totally cleansing.

To leave the mind and the body, totally
Freed —
of those entrapping shackles, that were 
weighing true Love down,
and preventing it’s sweet flower
from blooming.

And in the end, once you realise 
that One is All
and All is One
then you’ll remember —

everything you desire
is already found 
in the sacred cave of treasure,
hidden within your heart
that’s now emerging 
in Divine revelation 
golden light, brightening
the Dawn.

* * *

Keep opening the heart, no matter what has happened to you in the past. Don’t let wounds, stories, traumas, prevent you from loving again… because you are worthy and deserving of feeling loved, and being loved. And for that, we must be open to receive this love in the first place…

Something that helps me when I am going through a difficult moment emotionally, when my heart feels tender and vulnerable and I’m doubting whether I want to trust and open, is to do a meditation/visualisation where I imagine that my own heart is a portal into the universe, containing everything that I need.

This helps me relax, feeling safe and comfortable, and with the knowing that love is sourced within me as opposed to found in an external person or thing. Often, we shut out love because we are afraid of the feelings of vulnerability that come with attachment and dependency on the external, or feeling like another person is “in control” of our heart and emotions. But when we anchor within ourselves, we start to realise that ultimately we are responsible for our own love and happiness. Everything else just adds to our experience, and we can enjoy connections, relationships, and possessions, without attachment, appreciating them for what they bring, but without reliance on what is ultimately out of our control – because we can never control another persons feelings or behaviours.

I invite you to try this visualisation – get creative. What do you see when you look inside your heart? Try to picture the feeling of love. How does it look? Perhaps it is warm, bright and golden, like a summer sun warming you on the beach; or perhaps it is a rich, cosy, woollen blanket, wrapping you as you sit by a crackling fire to break the winter chill.

I also want you to know that even within the same relationship, we can go through cycles of death and rebirth; endings of old dynamics that are no longer serving, in order to make space for new, healthier dynamics, as the individuals within the relationship mature and grow.

We are here to heal, grow, rise and shine together. Choose relationships that support growth, and give you the freedom to express fully and authentically, as the loving being that you are. Don’t be afraid to let go if something isn’t working out – find that feeling of safety and love within yourself, to be your own anchor as you move away on your journey through life. But equally, don’t be afraid to open. To trust, surrender, and be vulnerable – because therein lies true intimacy, connection, and expansion.

Have a beautiful and love-filled weekend!

Shores of My Dreams

I peer beyond, the thinning veil
searching for my Soul
there's a part of me that wants to know
just what the future holds...

but the answer, it won't be found
looking for something out there
the power, it lies deep inside
in the magic, of your own prayer...

You are the one with the power to create your own reality, to live your dreams, and to find peace within: in the home inside your heart.

The words of this song speak to me about many things, including finding peace and happiness by truly grounding into my own heart, and remembering my own sovereign power – there are many things in the world that we cannot control, but one thing that we can, is our perception and our mindset. How do we view obstacles and “negative” situations? Do we turn challenges around, using them as opportunities for our growth? Do we fight against the current, or do we go with the flow of the water, finding new openings into different lands, instead of narrowly focussing on those roadblocks – which are perhaps saving us from travelling into undesirable territory?

This song is also about my relationship with spirit – finding my sense of stability through deepening my awareness of, and connection to, all that which is greater than me: to the life force flowing through all of nature and all of creation, the interconnectedness of all things though the air that we breathe and the water we drink, all cycling around in a great circle of life.

I find that by connecting to that which is beyond my physical body, and which is eternal and infinite in its nature, I am better able to cope with unexpected shifts and changes in my life, and the transience of many things about this physical existence.

People, connections, relationships, come and go. Material possessions wear out, break, lose their shine. Our bodies age, and will eventually fade away. But energy is immortal. It changes form, but never dies.

I will love to know what this song evokes in you and means for you.

If you want support in developing a lifestyle where you feel deeper connection to your own heart and soul, you can read more about my mentoring programme.

Have a beautiful weekend,


Eternal Sun / Eterno Sol

... oh do you hear the call
to rise up after the fall
let the layers of falsity
stop clouding your reality...

When we shift our mindset, we may just find our reality start to shift around us… it is through freeing our mind of its limitations, and training it to find positive solutions in times of challenge, that we may rise and grow to create the reality of our dreams…

… if you would like support in developing a lifestyle where you feel happy, healthy, and purposeful, I am now offering a 4-week mentoring programme designed to help you find deeper connection to, and awareness of, yourself: in order to empower and inspire you to make those lifestyle changes that you want.

I adopt an integrated and holistic approach, drawing on a vast array of techniques from my own experiences of health, wellness, and also spirituality: attending countless workshops, events, talks and retreats, as well as my studies of body and energy work, and shamanism. You will receive weekly 1-1 consultations and toolkits of simple yet effective techniques to take care of your health and wellbeing: from the body, to the heart, mind, and soul.

You can read more about my offering at my mentoring page.

With Love and wishing you a beautiful weekend.


Weeping Light

A Jungle moon, 
her tiger's eye tears
as she bears
witness to the massacre 
of this Earth
with all its illusions, and

stemming from faith
in a sickened system
that is poisoning humanity
through nightmare years...

But as she weeps
her silver light
sends rays of hope
through the fog of Night

For there's always an answer
in the calm of the storm
and flaming, but not raging
we'll fight a new kind of fight

with the force of Creation
not Destruction
coursing through our 

with the music of awakened 
channelled,from our beating 

hearts opening with newfound Courage
and uniting with their Love

Sacred Truth

There’s a Truth, that’s hiding 
in the corners of your Heart 
in the fabric of your Soul
as it’s weaving
through the in-Between
of your magic Light
shining upon 
the night Within;

Dark side
of the moon
begins to glow
as a sweet flow unfolds 
upon a sinking dawn;

an inversion of time 
where day meets eternity 
upside down 
through the whispers of

a new kind of story 
a story of immortal


The more we surrender, into the sacred gift of presence within each moment, the more we will find, time itself expanding, with dreamlike possibility, and paradoxical secrets:

an infinite coalescing, of past, present and future, where we may savour all, as it is, our senses in tune with the deep satisfaction of the eternal now

and so too the moment is freed, from stories and conditioning, for so total becomes our being, enveloped with awakened light, and the truth of immortal existence 

as we come to the realisation 
that within us is All
and All is One 


With Love,

Prayer for Connection

As a fading Sun kisses
the cobwebs on my skin —
immortal being, re-birthed
through time

I’ll turn within 
I’ll look right down
the winding corridors 
inside my Soul

those roads, hold the answers 
teachings from beyond;
a pathway revealing 
secrets of my kin 

ancestral wisdom 
of ancient song
echos, teaching
beyond the Right or Wrong

and so connection unfolds 
when we nurture that flame
sparking from the essence 
of the eternal One

un-winding the layers
of falsity’s curse
that separate ourselves 
from the truth within our Hearts 


In moments where we lack connection with ourselves, we lose connection to that Some-Thing that is greater…

beyond us;

call it Spirit, call it Source, or simply the Universe — great expanding magical vastness that transcends the physical
Space-Time planes
of our Reality
here on Earth…

For our Heart is the gateway, is the portal to what’s Beyond

our heart contains,
the secret keys
to the channels of the Soul
that vibrate with,
the pulsing rhythm 
of birthing Stars

… and bridge the fabric
of our beings 
with the music of
the One

Wishing you a beautiful, peaceful, and connected weekend.


Aquatic Secret

There's a story, up there in the clouds;
revealing, as it's shape-shifting
dolphins and whales
flying through
a celestial blue
mirror of prayer
shedding a fiery tear
upon the blank canvas
of the Heart.

Fear dissolves, into the swirling ocean 
currents of liquid silver,
crowning the Empress,
of underwater lands
hiding from sight,
until the time is right
to share the secrets
of her undying 

A mystic dream, is unfurling, blooms upon 
the spring garden of the Soul,
that's coming to Life
that's dripping with the nectar
of sweet Truth's penetration
into our beings
into our spirits
spiralling up and into 
the Stars.

The tantalising abstraction
of watercolour stains
depicting a portrait
from beyond mortal years
Beauty incarnate, transmuted hate
a learned teaching
from a Sage's storybook
starts clarifying before
weary eyes, now ready to reclaim
their Power.

Paradox of One

In the Silence
of the Dawn
memories speak
from places Beyond
surfacing, to be

lessons spinning
on a burning breeze
that's alive with wonder
truth and pain

the aching gateway
that holds the key
to eternal despair
    or everlasting growth?

Two sides of a spectrum
vibrating along
from light to dark
day to night

'till the sun bursts forth
shining bright, breaking free...

with the song of union
a paradox of One

* * *

May you be blessed, with the revelation
that every emotion, is just a vibration
every experience, offers transformation
pain to bliss, and fear to love
allow echoes of old, to fade away
returning to innocence
with the dawning of today

Love and blessings on your path.
