BIOGRAPHY

Female, , birthday 26th February
Joined January 2019

I am a musician. I am a saxophonist who then started songwriting and playing the harp in 2003. After another five years I started putting together journeys with song and this turned into my first book. It belongs in the mind, body, spirit genre, and is an autobiographical journey around the seasonal, astrological year that reflects the 12 stages of our life journey and the archetypal aspects that are apparent in us all. It is a weaving together of as many threads as I am able!.
A few years ago I began writing book two, which also was created alongside a journey with song, which I created as a journey into the labyrinth. This looks into our shadow side, the Minotaur that has been pushed aside (apparently slain) rather than faced. The problems this has brought into our culture fascinates me.
With this process came a desire to get into politics that I had not come across before. Politics with a positive side. Before moving to Frome in 2013 I didn't think this was possible. Thankfully I have been shown otherwise.
This has ignited a great deal of excitement into my life and I am looking forward to sharing this here with the Campfire convention.

Influences

I am most influenced by people who have managed to find ways to solve problems that society has given up on till recently, people who offer hope with creative thinking, courage and steadfast, strong minded conviction.

In this post I am investigation the Virgo archetype which is all about our potential and what I believe is standing in our way. The next post will look at our judgement and inner peace (the Libra archetype) and I really believe this is at the heart of our resistance, what is stopping us from moving forward positively.

Please help me shake the Magic Money Tree I'd like you to help me fund the making of the video (inspired by Amber Rudd trying to convince us all that there is no such thing as a magic money tree) and you can support my crowdfunder by clicking on the link section of this post.

I am making a music video for my song Magic Money Tree and I am asking for help to fund the making of the video and also for people to come to Frome and be in the video itself, dancing under the tree in Rodden Meadow in the centre of Frome.

This month's blog looks into the Leo astrological archetype. This is all about our personal power and our ability understand our inner strength. This is something we culturally lack having had it systemically removed from our whole way of being. It is time to retrieve what we have lost and remember how to engage and find our power as a community

I have never felt so optimistic and talking to people around me I don't seem to be alone. Whereas before my desire for utopia seemed almost ridiculous, now I feel we are just set for the course. Of course there is chaos everywhere, but it feels like I am looking at a scene ripe for people to take the stage, find their voice and claim their power. The inevitability of all this is absolute and when I keep judging myself for being late for my cue I remind myself that timing is key and perfect.

How do we prepare ourselves for the future we would like to live? I understand that the macro and micro worlds are mirrors and if we don't change within then we can't expect the world around us to change. I believe, we need to begin to visualise a sustainable world, economically, environmentally, politically and socially. We need to understand where we have been going wrong in the past and then gently and kindly teach ourselves to evolve and grow into our new possibilities.

What is the new year calling you to do? For me, I feel I am being asked to step into the unknown and to have faith and be happy that this will be a good place to be. Just holding an intention that the place we will arrive at will be a good one is all I need for now.
