Hello my darlinghearts,
Just wanted to let you know that come the new year, big things are happening!
With the New Year, there’s a whole bundle of new energy that comes in that we can make use of.
Three e-courses starting January 15!!
On January 15, there are THREE e-courses starting!
What are you wanting to focus on & get dancing at the start of next year?
Want to get healthy? Want to get creative? Want to make your home a sanctuary with some lovely decluttering & space clearing?
Choose one, then choose one of these babies:
The Radiant Goddess e-course!
The Creative Goddess e-course!
The Creating your Goddess Haven e-course!
Artist’s Way Group!
There will be an Artist’s Way group starting January 4. A gorgeous group of goddesses will be going through the book together to share in the adventure. TAW is a magical process – I’ve done it 2 or 3 times. Before the Goddess Circle was around, I did it the old school way – on my own, and also with my darling friend Goddess Sone. We’d talk about it by email and encourage each other along.
So I’m super super delighted there is going to be a group of goddesses going through it together!!!
How to join in the glorious goddessness!
To join in with any or all of these courses, you just need to be a member of the Goddess Circle.

A note about women’s circles
When I was 22, I took my first step into a women’s circle. And it changed me indelibly. In one moment, I knew it was the place I belonged. The place I had been missing my whole life. The place I would keep coming back to for the rest of my life.
It was where I wanted to be.
It was the place I found beauty inside. It was the place I remembered my own wisdom.
It was the place I found deep, loving connections with women that I didn’t know was possible. They loved me and heard me and supported me unconditionally.
When women circle, miracles happen.
I want you to be able to have your own women’s circle too – no matter where you live, no matter how busy your life is, no matter what you need.
I want you to be able to have your very own goddess tribe.
A circle of goddess sisters to hear you. To walk your journey with you. To share sage, gentle words of wisdom and support and love right when you need them.
If you were having a sucky day. If you were feeling lost. If you couldn’t get to sleep. If you needed healing. If you craved inspiration. If you needed to get happy again. If you were frozen with fear. If you really ding dang needed to get organised.
What if on all these days, you had something to turn to. A whole box of tools that were powerful and really, really worked.
Meditations to soothe your soul. Workbooks to help you get clarity. E-courses to help you get creative. Get your house decluttered & in order. Get your body healthy & radiant again.
What on earth would that possibly be like?
How different would that make your life?
That’s why I’ve made the Goddess Circle
Because I wanted to give you absolutely EVERYTHING I could to help you.
To help make your year as beautiful, potent, transformative and absoloodely luscious as I could.
Membership is only $99 for a whole year of miracles, wisdom, courses & inspiration. The value of all the things you get with membership is worth over $600 – I wanted to make it as accessible & easy for you as I possibly could.
To enrol, head over to the Goddess Circle page.
And of course, if you have any questions, please just let me know dearest!
I’m here to help!
I want 2011 to be freaking magical. That’s all.
BIG LOVE YOU!
Hello my darlinghearts!
It’s time to celebrate the year that has been! I wanted to do a round-up of all the goodness and miracles that have happened here in Goddess Guidebook land in 2010.
Let’s start with jubilant January!
The birth of a new workbook!
The new year started off in jubilant fashion… the idea to create the 2010 Creating your Goddess Year workbook came to me just a couple of days before Christmas. Five days later, it was finished & sent out into the world!
It ended up being such a beautiful, fun project for me… that went amazingly popular. I ended up selling almost 1000 copies, and I adored spending January filling in my own & also seeing the pics of other goddesses using their own.
Celebration of six months pregnacious!
Dear daughter of my heart, six-months-old-in-my-womb,
We have three more moons together, where you will be living in my womb, and we are only cells apart.
On July 7th, you came into this world, thirty years to the day that your grandmama & grandpapa pledged their love to each other.
And in a thousand, myriad, rainbow ways, you have changed me, you have changed your papa, and you have changed those who love us.
You feel like sunshine and starlight and laughter and music.
You sing of intuition and mermaids and Atlantis and ancient wisdom and goodness.
You make me believe all the more in miracles, in love, and what we are each here for…
to be the very best part of ourselves. I will teach you all the beauty, love, goodness & possibility I know in this world.
And I know you will teach me too.
Because that’s our sacred contract. That’s what we come into our lives to do…
to teach each other, and love each other,
and see God in each other.
That is how it has always been, and how it will always be.
You can read the whole celebration post & see all ze photos here.
Creative Goddess Project: Pimp my Pinboard!
Me & Mr Beautiful decided to turn an old cork pinboard into a work of art.
Tutorial with photos here!
Being okay with pregnancies not being a sure thing!
A beautiful goddess asked me why I was okay with being pregnant and knowing it may not result in a baby.
I shared my answer from my heart here.
My brother passed away in an accident when I was 14. And it was the thing that I never wanted to have happen. It was the thing I prayed every night would never happen. And yet, it did. And yes, it was incredibly painful at the time, and I grieved losing him for a long, long time. I still do some days. But the thing I learned? Was that I didn’t actually lose him. You never really lose someone who is a part of your soul, your story and your love.
My brother showed me that love goes through all the doors and walls of this plane and the next. Though I can’t see him, I know he is still around, loving, guiding and helping me and my family. He has taught me so much in his passing, and he is still very much my big brother. He likes to talk, and he likes me to listen.
Death didn’t cause the end of our relationship – it keeps on growing, blooming like any other relationship. My brother is just more starry now.
Mostly, I just feel exceptionally lucky that I received my brother to love… for the 14 years I knew him physically, and the thirteen that followed.
So my brother’s passing didn’t end up being a horrible thing for me – it has become a deep and sacred blessing in my life.
What my soul needed to grow, my life gifted me.
Sacred Goddess: How to trust your intuition!
Me & Charlie decided to create a video in bed about trusting intuition.
You can watch it here.
Gosh we’ve had some fun this year, haven’t we?
And this was just January!
More to come, my beautiful hearts!!!!
big big love & celebration & adoring!!!
“OK…I have been a Goddess Circle member for…what? A month now?
I CANNOT BELIEVE THE CHANGES IN ME!!!!
I am meditating almost every day. I am taking a moment morning and night to connect with my guides and angels. I am taking time for myself for the first time since my son was born (an afternoon once a week…but WHAT A DIFFERENCE). I am giving myself a break from all the self-criticism… this is a first.
And that’s just the beginning…there is so much more shifting and blossoming. It’s amazing.
Anyway, I just wanted to let you know what a HUGE difference I feel already. Everything feels more magical.

My dearest sisters,
I see the Goddess in You.
No, I really do.
It is true.
There is a Goddess in You.
Brave, beautiful, wise, divine.
Inside you there is the
the one who knows best
the one who knows all manner of things in this world
can be healed with a cup of tea, with an hour of listening,
with those lightbeams we call love
I am so blessed to know you,
to be one of you.
I am so blessed to know your
and all the myriad rainbow ways you change the world.
You really do.
I see the goddess in you
and she reminds me there is a goddess in me.
Big big love,
Hola gorgeous goddesses!
I’m ze author of ze #Reverb10 prompt today:
December 19 – Healing
What healed you this year? Was it sudden, or a drip-by-drip evolution? How would you like to be healed in 2011?
I wrote this a couple of weeks ago.
And without even realising, I answered my own question.
I’m on dat ole healing journey again.
You know the kind – the one you need to take when everything gets so hard, there’s no alternative but to find stuff that heals you.
Ostara, precious light in my heart, is nearly nine months old. Nine months in the womb, nine months out. She is growing every single moment, every single day. Today, she started laughing, and began to clap her hands together for the very first time. Today, she was ready to do some further exploring, and set off out onto the verandah to go discover it all on her own. It’s easier & easier to leave her with her daddy as I run to a small cafe and spend two hours writing furiously away & running this beautiful business of mine.
She’s starting to need me a little less intensely just as I’m needing to heal myself. And oh my goddess, how I need to heal myself. I need to heal an intense pregnancy & birth (birth! even when you meditate through the whole thing, it is still the most challenging initiation a woman could face). Oh, and then there’s that nine months of new mamahood, plus the addition of the hardest year of transformation in my life. There’s that transformation toll again: leaving our city and home to move to tropical paradise. Leaving our jobs.
And I still just can’t quite believe our dear friend Justin is dead. I mean – I get that he died and all – but I can’t believe he’s still dead. C’mon dude, you’ve had your time in rainbow land! Come back already! Facebook me to talk about the mysteries of life again!
There’s a million and one more things than this that also happened this year, too numerous, sticky & hard to mention. I’m just a little shellshocked by it all. It’s been one long year of transformation.
So we sit, in this new little cream cottage of ours. Being quiet. Doing our soul’s work. Healing. Slowly, slowly coming home to ourselves. I look over at Christian, my ocean-eyed wonderlove, and I’m immensely grateful to find myself still sailing this ship with him.
And I’m deeply thankful that he supports me in this healing journey of mine.
A friend once said to me:
Even when things get really friggin hard, I’m so so grateful for those healing times. I learn so much from them. That’s when my biggest lessons come. Don’t ya reckon?
And she is right.
When things get hard, I’ve got no choice but to heal.
I’ve got no choice but to listen deeply, attentively & unreservedly to my intuition, hoping & praying it will yield up those things that I seek – the tiny gems of wisdom, the minuscule pointers which way to turn next, how else to be.
I’ve been totally unable to do anything but find some faith that the world is giving me what I need – I just have to pay attention and follow those signs.
I’m going to see my angel acupuncturist every week. She’s totally stereotypical Earth Angel – white blonde hair, ginormous blue eyes that are made of the same stuff as baby deers and rabbits and unicorn sparkle. She pops in the needles & proceeds to do reiki. Holy phenomenal.
A friend mentioned by chance a visiting naturopath, right after I’d been searching for one. On Saturday I sat in our backyard, phone in hand, and cried my little mama heart out to her. The extra blessing on top? It turns out she was a midwife, and is deeply understanding of just what birth + new mamahood take out of a body + soul.
I told Chris that I needed to find an intuitive healer. One that was much older, one that was a counsellor as well, one who knew women’s mysteries & the way of mamahood. And the thing was – I had no idea how to find her, or who she was. I just described to Chris what I needed. I tried not to be anxious. I decided not to take second best & go for what I knew already. I said to him: “I don’t know who it is yet. I just have to wait.”
It was the same words I uttered to him when I decided I needed a spiritual mentor at Ostara’s birth. I didn’t know who or how it was possible. I just voiced out what I needed into the world. And it was that night I found out that my mentor Ellanita was moving back to our town just before her birth.
And it was the same with this. The night after I had voiced out what I needed, the answer arrived. A dear friend told me about a mother’s mysteries retreat she had been on, lead by an intuitive healer & counsellor. And there went the BING! in my head. There went the voice: That’s your woman.
And so it was.
Yesterday, I found myself speaking to the woman I’d dreamed up. So intense was the healing I spent the rest of the day sleeping, feeling like I’d had a total cellular transplant.
And even more healing signposts have popped up. A few days ago, I read an article on Sarah Wilson about tapping. I’ve been taught EFT before – but it had never really sunk in. It just hadn’t been the time for it.
Last night, in my dreams, I got told it was time to start doing EFT. That dreamingland of mine is a special place – it’s the place I get taught by my elders & healing spirits. It’s the place I got shown for the first time how to do hands on healings. Dreams for me aren’t just about donkeys wearing tutus singing songs about the mother country (though that can be special! hee!) Nopes – my dreams are my classroom. So when I get told to do stuff in dreamland, I do. (Ze Goddess Circle is another concoction from my dreamland.)
So this morning I’ve been teaching myself EFT thanks to ze wonders of YouTube. I’ve already tapped myself out of a panic attack.
Yussiree… things they are adrift.
And I am grateful for them.
I’m incredibly grateful for this healing, for all the ways it comes.
I’ll always remember 2010 for being the year that took everything away, so I could find myself again.
I am starting to glimpse what awaits. I’m starting to glimpse feeling lighter. Brighter. Utterly new.
I’m starting to see all the cloaks and weights I am setting down. Things that are not mine, and have never really been mine.
Oh, I see. That’s not mine. That’s not what I really, really wanted. That’s what someone else wanted for me. And that’s okay… That’s okay to let that go now.
I’m starting to dream again.
Drip by drip, moment by moment, healing by healing.
Things can be good.
And in 2011? I want to remember my joy again. That’s how I want to be healed.
Wherever you are at, dearest, I just wanted to offer you total & complete permission for you to be where you are at. To rest. To heal. To find your way. You are doing the bestest job ever.
Love, gratitude & loving awakeness,
This wisdom, by my incredible Goddess Circle sister Melissa of Inspired Mind Body Soul, took my breath away this week.
She’s even giving away a printable poster of it on her luscious blog.
It’s shining wisdom we need to listen to.
Wisdom I need to listen to.
Thank you, dearest Goddess Melissa.
Have a sacred, soulful Sunday, dearest hearts.
