The miracle of the cataract operation

Last week I had a cataract operation and it was as if it opened up a whole new world.  More than that, it ushered in a whole new me. I’ve been near sighted all my life, wore glasses when I was under 10, contact lenses at 16, and still seemed to have poorer eyesight than […] Read more »

Free the Imagination

The imagination is the pioneer of the soul. When all is said and done, the soul asks us to make everything new. To do this, we take one step at a time, be it giant step or baby step, towards an expanded consciousness for ourselves and others. This cis the consciousness that enables us to […] Read more »

What makes a transition into a turning point?

A sneak preview of my talk at the Mind Body Spirit Festival this morning: If transitions are the space between one identity and another, one picture of ourselves and another, then turning points happen at the moment that we allow ourselves to let go of the old identity and allow a new identity to find […] Read more »

How to Turn a Transition into a Turning Point

Giving a talk at the Mind Body Spirit Festival on May 24 is a great opportunity to think about transitions and turning points in a new way.  I’ve always found transitions difficult;  they say that there are three kinds of babies,  easy ones, difficult ones, and those who find new situations difficult.  I am the […] Read more »

Why ‘Creating the Life You Want’ is a minefield

Everywhere you go, there are courses and books and videos on how you can create the life you want.  And given that my field is imagery and visualisation, this is usually what people think I’m about. Yes and no. Yes, because having a clear sense of what you want and then making it happen is […] Read more »

The Holistic Imagination

Spatial awareness is not my strong point.  When I was taking driving lessons, my driving teacher thought I seemed confident as I drove out, and would master the whole thing in a few lessons. How wrong he was! I remember the moment he despaired of the way I tried to turn the car around, bashing […] Read more »

You Are What You Imagine

There is no way to the imagination; the imagination is the way. We do not so much need to develop our imagination, as to understand that our imagination already directs our life and is one of the most powerful resources given to us as humans. It is, in fact one of the defining characteristics of […] Read more »

Why Your Visualisations Don’t Work

We all know that old saying: Be careful what you wish for because you may get it…. Never a truer word was said when it comes to visualization. The traditional idea of visualization is that you say what you want, you picture yourself having it, and you do that so consistently and powerfully that it […] Read more »

The Now or Never Challenge

Two years ago I took up my Now or Never Challenge. I felt I was wasting my time with too little creativity and too much dithering. The world seemed to be leaving me behind as it zoomed on ahead to accommodate young people’s way of living and thinking, and neglected my kind of wisdom and […] Read more »

Now or Never

I admit I’m getting old, or, should I say, I am at an age that I would once have considered old. And that means life feels very precious—time is limited and the magic and surprises not yet discovered may be too many for the time left. So for me, it’s now or never to wake […] Read more »
