Dear Yogis,

I hope you have noticed that it is a busy month.  To add to my “busy’ness” we are having a Christmas in July OPEN DAY on Saturday the 16th as well as Sunday the 17th at 2pm.  I am not ready, but then, there is only me, if i don’t get time for something, well I don’t get time.  There is always another day, another way.

I plan to have a range of dolls available from very big to very small… I was hoping for old fashioned, hand crafted jewelled doilies, but I have used them on the dolls. There there are the paintings even some big angels are looking for a home.  Don’t hold back.  Come, experience, and leave with an art piece – even something small like a pendulum – or just say Hi in person, the first time since the Covid lockdowns.


I have spent the weekend cutting back the wisteria which in spring grows “triffid like” as you watch, as you can see from the photograph on the left. It reaches for the stars and I can often be found on a ladder trying to catch up.

In my spare time this weekend I have been studying the tarot, in particular the 5D aspects.  I even pulled out my old book called “The Flight of the Feathered Serpent”.  This book on the tarot was thought to be unusual in the 1970’s when I purchased it, but is a collectors item now.  My dealer says that even with my margin notes and scribbles,  it is worth $1,300 which is not a bad investment seeing I scraped together $35 when I bought it.  I am not selling.  It is a great book and I pull it out whenever I have an unusual or difficult tarot reading coming up.  It is an inspirational book.  Unfortunately I couldn’t afford the cards when I bought the book, and it has been years since I have seen a deck.  This being the case, they are probably out of my price bracket now.

Please book a zoom Tarot reading – I would love to work with you. Email for a booking:

I am a “midnite sewer/darner” and usually pick up sewing about 8pm even on the weekend.  I am usually wide awake (having had a 7pm short cat nap), and I get a lot done.  Unfortunately it is midnite or later when I suddenly realise the time and go to bed.  I do not do a 5am meditation, it is 6.30 before I “sit” but I sit for a long time. It is important to do this every morning, and I do.  Plus a have a spiritual reading time morning and nite, which is a kind of meditation of itself.


If you are looking for yoga to effect a change, to “make you well”, to diminish your anxiety or anything else,  then stop a minute and understand that yoga is not a “pill”.  Yoga is a lifestyle, and to effect a change you are going to have to take it very seriously.  There is only one thing that can change you, and that is you.  Don’t imagine for a second that one class of yoga or meditation is going to cure your ills.  The one hour with me needs to be the “top-up” to your daily yoga program.

In the beginning this can be a 3 MINUTE MEDITATION followed by a 7 MINUTE “5 TIBETAN” REGIME.  If you have do this DAILY, then yoga will change you.  If you can only do yoga for one or once a week, and 10 minutes “when you have time?”, then probably it won’t change much at all, except you will be able to say to your family and friends “of course, I do yoga”.  It needs to be genuine LOVE of yoga and not a need or want – “If I do this yoga must to do that!!!!”  You can’t SHOP for wellness, even with yoga.

If you have been reading (or you-tubing) about a new yoga program you think will ease your pains, and expect to do it for a month and nothing more will be needed, please understand that it is highly unlikely.  It is a good place to start, but it is not a good place to finish.  A month is an introduction that is all it is.  

I would love to have you as a student, especially if it is the beginning of a lifelong practice.  What if you don’t like it?  We all get those days.  The heroes in the class pay no attention to these days and march on through them.. learning along the way what yoga really is.  It is a health regime for body mind and spirit.  It is not a magic wand.  There are no “Harry Potter Moments”.

If you are able to dedicate a small amount of every day to yoga – 10 MINUTES at the same time in the same place – then we can guarantee that life will change for you.  No complicated breathing, no flexibility,  no olympic effort required.  Just a genuine desire, having tried other things which have not worked very well,  to invest 10 minutes a day, every day, in yoga.  I wrote about the Vagus nerve last week.  A regime like this is KEY. 

I can only control myself, you have all the necessary resources to solve your own problems despite how hard they may be. My job is to pray for you, love you, and encourage you but it’s up to YOU to solve your difficulties find your happiness.   I can only give you my advice if you ask me and it depends on you to follow it or not. There are ALWAYS consequences, good or bad, to your decisions and YOU have to live them.
