‘My Vocation is Love’ – Introducing Thérèse of Lisieux (Video)

I recently started creating a video series on female Christian mystics (read this post to learn more about what this subject to me) and I have begun the series by introducing Thérèse of Lisieux. In this video, she discusses what the words “vocation” and “pledge” can mean to people living in the modern era, the…

Female Christian Mysticism: Preparing to Speak

Lately, I have been daring myself, more and more often, to speak openly about spiritual topics that are close to my heart: secure in the knowledge that people who don’t know what I’m on about are not obligated to listen to my ramblings. 😂 Some of my loved ones do think I’m a little weird, but there…

The Fairies of Fota (Photography)

I’ve made no secret of the fact that I love fairies! I was overcome by excitement last year, when I feasted my eyes on the beautiful fairy trail on the grounds of Parknasilla Resort in Sneem, Co. Kerry. Last weekend, I got to experience that excitement all over again when my partner and I visited…

BS Spiritual / Self-Help Marketing Tactics (Video)

In this video, I rant and rave … a little bit. 😉 Marketing can be tricky for people who are working in the spiritual arena. I’m well aware that if an intuitive or tarot reader or anyone else offering spiritual services is starving and can’t pay their bills, they won’t be in a position to…

Ermahgerd, I’ve Released My First Anthology

The Light Touch of Liberty is my first anthology. It celebrates people who dare to dream, ask questions and speak their truth. It acknowledges just what a revolutionary act it is to stand tall, in a world that still seeks to hold us down. Producing the book has given me a renewed sense of confidence…

Atlantis: Unlocking Mystery, Discerning Your Truth

Today, I’m tackling the subject of Atlantis – which is a vast subject, and a whole lot of people have opinions about it – so I’m aware that it’s going to be hard to really do it justice or cover every single facet of it. The purpose of this blog post is to share a…

Reflection on Other Lifetimes (Video)

The video below is a response to discussions I’ve seen lately around the issue of reincarnation, other lifetimes, the soul and what the afterlife looks like. In it, I touch upon the nature of time, and how I view it as an essentially non-linear quality. This is a vast topic, without a doubt! I’m essentially…

‘The Oxen’ (a Poem)

In factories Secluded from the lights Of your civilisation (Cold walls, Screeching steel) We stand and wait. Comfort is found In scraps of peace: The lightest pressure Of breath against skin, A wet nose, A slow blink Of thick-lidded eyes. In factories Shielded from the glories Of your progress (Hoarse voices, Electric jolts) We stagger…

Poetry Day Ireland: Three Poems That Inspire Me

Today (Thursday May 2nd) is Poetry Day Ireland! The craft of poetry means a lot to me, so I wanted to celebrate this day by highlighting three poems that speak very deeply to my heart. ❤️ The amazing Pulitzer-Prize-winning poet Mary Oliver passed away in January of this year. Her powerful poem The Journey means…

In a Perfect World…

I saw an interesting conversation on Facebook recently, in which people were invited to consider what they would do with their lives if they weren’t bound by social conventions or problems. Many of the women’s answers revolved around feeling safe enough to go out at night and simply enjoy the peace and tranquillity of that…
