To Plastic: Goodbye and Thank You

Opening your heart is the key to everything. ❤️ I will always remember 2019 as a pivotal year in my life. It has been a year of incredible vulnerability, and incredible connection (a direct result of the vulnerability). It’s been a year of opening up, daring to speak about what I believe and how I…

‘Horses’ (a poem from my anthology)

Lately, I’ve found myself thinking a lot about ‘Horses’, a poem I wrote for my anthology, The Light Touch of Liberty.  The poem is essentially about my memories of Atlantis in its later, rapidly descending stages. When I recently saw a beautiful, illuminated sculpture of a unicorn at the Wonderlights event in Palmerstown Estate, Co….

#NaNoWriMo Preparation Kicks Off Again

Last year, I took part in the daunting, yet awe-inspiring NaNoWriMo (an annual challenge that takes place every November, during which writers attempt to complete the entire first draft of a novel in one month). Last year was my first time taking part in the challenge, and I managed to meet the 50,000-word target … a feat…

Dematerialising Plastic (Video)

I care deeply about the topic of plastic, and how we can move towards dematerialising it, or working with it in a more beneficial way. I believe this process of dematerialisation has to begin with us acknowledging exactly how serious the plastic pollution situation actually is, and then tuning into this substance, so we can…

‘The Lines on my Face’ – Introducing Teresa of Avíla (Video)

I’m continuing my video series on female Christian mystics with a channelling of Teresa of Avíla, available to watch below. 😊 Teresa was a Carmelite nun who lived in Spain during the sixteenth century, and has since become well-known for her extensive contributions to Catholic theology and her spiritual writings (The Interior Castle, in particular,…

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…

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…
