Happy Easter

Just as I picked up a book from the bookshelf last week and noted the array of Lili’s on the front cover, it dawned on me that Easter was approaching. I guess I naturally connected the image to that of Jesus Christ. And that too seemingly came from the long withheld view that the Lili…

Touched by the cactus garden

Believe it or not, almost everyone that touched my path in these last few months had something to say about hell. Honestly, it almost felt as though an energetic storm had passed through the earth and swept everyone up inside of it. It’s been having me somewhat concerned about the suffering of our fellow men,…

Come on – join us for a tea

What is it with a cup of tea I ask? Why does it hit my sides, flush out my gunk and raise me back up into the light I ask? This spring I converted myself back to this delightful substance wondering why it feels so good. It left me wondering whether anyone else agreed with…

Following flow with the help of our reaffirming serum

This March, rain or shine, I spent at least one hour per day sitting on my terrace. And each day that I made my entrance, I was greeted by the tiled flower pots, the garden lanterns and flower buds waiting, in tiny ball-shaped sizes, to flower. As the days passed and I found old leaves…

Spreading love this Valentine’s Day

For the sake of curiosity, this week I couldn’t help but sit down, take a look at Valentine’s Day and wonder what it was all about. Then I discovered that according to the history books, it originated in ancient Rome when an Emperor decided that married soldiers weren’t as effective as unmarried ones, so he…

A taste of Neo Tribal Fusion

It was a long time coming, my meeting with her and when I saw her approach me I remembered why. Her glossy black hair and beautiful face met me half way as I felt an immediate lift from the sight of her. “Marjorie!” I squealed with excitement. “Ahhh, my lovely Anneka.” She returned the gushing…

The art of sustaining your energy throughout the winter

So, winter is well and truly upon us and how it feels so good. It’s strange this feeling; about the winter. The newspapers seem to be lying, again. Winter is lovely. I figure those people that crossed paths with me were right. Health and happiness is born within. So, on that note; It’s been a…

They say that dreaming is for free

The story started when I suddenly found myself wide awake one morning. The feeling that ran through me was sheer panic – I was late for a breakfast meeting with my brother. So, I immediately tumbled out of bed in a guilty sweat and hoped that today I was going to be punctual. I continued…

Did you have any realisations last year?

One day last year, I found myself sitting below the late morning sun on a Greek island.  I must say, she was a very unique island. Some of her visitors told me that they’d had many a mystical experience with her.  As indeed did I this particular morning. While I was busy working away at…

Saying Yes to the Pleasures of Life

Today I spent the afternoon at home chatting with my nephew, and to join the celebration, we invited the chocolate oat biscuits and tea pot to join us. It was after pouring two hot cups of black tea that I decided, naturally, to dip a biscuit into my mug. What I experienced, as the rain…

A Real Taste of Kirtan in the Park

It wasn’t that long ago that I took a walk around one of the most beautiful parks in the world – Parc de la Ciutadella, Barcelona. After a stroll past the masterful tight rope walkers, kora players, lovers snoozing side by side and children posing in their latest yoga postures, I was drawn in by…

Healing Inner Pain – a helping hand from Rishikesh, India

It was just the other day that I toppled over crying. Not with a baby crocodile tear but a river flowing o’er me.  After a few minutes of enjoying this light release, the river eventually lost its charm and transformed itself into a swamp of heavy pains and inflamed skin. “Was it normal to cry…
