The Cosmic Web

Coming Home to a New Way of Being

The Cosmic Web and a New Way of Being

October 14, 2010 By: fiona Category: Inspirations

A very warm welcome to The Cosmic Web, a space I have opened up to share the process of coming home to a new way of being.

And the point comes when you realise that there is a job to be done. That there is a new way of being.

And all that remains to do is to respond to those deep inner promptings and allow that divine spark within full expression. Fully surrendering now and creating space for the joyful expression of who I AM.

In gratitude.

Breathing New Life into the Cosmic Web Project

March 22, 2013 By: fiona Category: The Cosmic Web Artisans

A lot of water has gone under the bridge since I was last present on this site. To be honest I didn’t know what direction to go in with all of this and had just lovingly decided to lay it all to one side until I got more clarity.

Just recently I started up an artisans’ group and gave it the name The Cosmic Web. It was only a few days ago that I came to the realisation that it would be wonderful to bring the group onto this site and create a presence for the lovely people who take part in the activities.

So from now on you can enjoy reading about what we all get up to and I’ll be sharing photos and other niceties with you, letting you be a part of our process.

In the meantime you can read a bit more about the group by going to the dedicated page I have opened up: The Cosmic Web Artisans. If you think you’d like to join us, all the details are on the link.

Looking forward to sharing with you in the next few days.

 

Rita Hraiz: A biography on my next Blog Talk Radio Guest

April 21, 2012 By: fiona Category: Fiona and Friends

RITA HRAIZ was born in London in 1963, eldest daughter of an Indian Father and a Lebanese mother, went to a catholic school. Aged 7 her father taught her to meditate by centering her energy at her brow centre. Rita has measured her life by her profound spiritual experiences which she became conscious of at the age of 4 years.

She was also clear that she passionately wanted to be to be a fashion designer at aged 7 and focused much of her thinking around this.  When she was 25 she had already had her clothes featured in British Vogue and had a multi national oil organization backing her collection which she supplied to the likes of Top Shop, H&M Hennes and Miss Selfridge along with Saks 5th Avenue and Galleries La Fayette, initiating manufacturing in various factories in Europe and running her own in house factory in London.

Having achieved all that she had set out to do and realizing this did not give her inner peace or substantial happiness at all, at age 27 she gave up a high profile life style.  By this time she had been featured in Forbes magazine, The Guardian, and countless other high profile newspapers and magazines as well as various radio and tv shows including Jonathan Ross LIVE as an astrologer who designed outfits based on your birth chart. But she gave this all up in order to take a spiritual sabbatical.

Rita who now has four children moved to Glastonbury in 1994 with her eldest 2 boys to live life in a focused meditation regularly getting up at 4am and study esoteric astrology and texts of ageless wisdom after receiving what she considered profound and humbling teachings about the laws of initiation and the 7 rays.

In 1998 two years after her 3rd son Shiloh was born in water and in a powerful state of bliss with each contraction melting into pure white light, Rita began to ground out her spiritual practices and in order to pay bills began the notorious cake business from her home. This was called Seriously Scrumptious and the cakes which were made as an offering to the Divine went on to sell in Harrods food halls, all 17 restaurants of Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Cadbury’s and later Waitrose.

Rita personally pioneered food sales on QVC the shopping channel and succeeded in doing sell out shows at a rate of £45, 000 in 30 minutes. Multi millionaire Phillip Green at one time wanted to buy into her business. However from a place of desperation and pressure she sold out taking on £170 000 debts personally and three weeks later her soul mate died of a road traffic accident just after their baby daughter Shanti Devi was born. She was 5 months old at the time.

This was a very empowering and lucid moment for Rita who feels this also was a profound blessing in her life as tough as it was. Not long after this her clothes brand which has been developed specifically to nourish light workers was born. The Brand is called ‘Rita Hraiz in MUDRA’ . This collection which is inspired by her understanding of colour therapy is stunning and comfortable and has won The Pret a Porter award for best ethical collection. It is designed by Rita to encourage all women to feel comfortable to shine and look beautiful and is available in sizes extra small to XXXL .
Rita feels her highest purpose in this life is to share wisdom as truth teachings from a place of her own self realization and her esoteric studies of the ageless wisdom: this comes from all streams of teachings from the Essenes, Christianity, The Vedas, The Tantric Buddhist teachings and also from the Sufis as well as from sacred medicine plants and the teachings of the indigenous ways.
Rita makes regular time to give esoteric astrology readings on a one to one basis and takes commissions for soul portraits as her personal way to deepen in her meditation and express some of the beauty of her inner world is through her sacred art.

Fiona & Friends: Ann Evanston in Bliss Talk on the Cosmic Web

March 24, 2012 By: fiona Category: Fiona and Friends

About 15 months ago I signed up for a social networking bootcamp as I was getting all sorts of signs from the universe that this was something that would be incredibly useful to know how to do. I literally had no idea what I was letting myself in for and so became one of Ann Evanston‘s students at The SNCC Way.

It was quite an intense time to say the least but I got there, after much ripping out of hair and almost despairing at what seemed to be a total impasse.

But it all shifted and we got there and now a lot of water has passed under the bridge. My online presence was secured and began to take on a life of its own.

So it’s wonderful that Ann is now with me in the studio as my next Blog Talk Radio guest. You’re going to hear all about how she came to create Warriorpreneur and become an acclaimed social media expert and we’ll be chatting about the challenges she met along the way and how it all helped her to become who she is today.

Ann Evanston is so much more than just a social media strategist though. She is a speaker, inspirer, a leader in her field, You’ll have a chance to hear about how she is venturing out into the world of writing now and what inspirations have guided her in that direction. And we’ll be chatting about what she loves to do when she’s not in the public eye and what makes her leap out of bed in the mornings.

In fact, why not come along and listen in. Because we’re going to be talking about all sorts of things. I wouldn’t want you to miss out.

So here’s the link to the show – it’ll be running at 8pm GMT for 90 mins. The fabulous part is that you can call in live and say hello to Ann and ask her any questions you have.

Fiona & Friends: Jon Robson in Bliss Talk on the Cosmic Web

March 09, 2012 By: fiona Category: Fiona and Friends, Meeting Spirit to Spirit

I’m so looking forward to having my next guest with me on Blog Talk Radio on Wednesday 14th March. His name is Jon Robson. He’s a Brit now resident in Carbondale, Colorado and  is a very muti-facetted soul indeed.

We met a few years ago in Houston when we both attended a facilitator training with Dr. John Demartini  some of you may know from ‘The Secret’.

Jon struck me immediately as someone who had great determination to do whatever it took to allow him to be what he was being called to be.

A real warrior with heart.

And the more I have got to know him through extensive mutually inspiring Skype chats,  the more I have seen that this is true.

He has such an amazing clarity and sense of purpose that you can’t help but be inspired by who he is.

We will be taking you on Jon’s journey with him, from his background in martial arts through to the present day. And I really hope you will get a sense of how all the threads are truly coming together in Jon’s work.

He works today sharing a healing modality with people called Meta Medicine and we will be talking about this more extensively on the the radio show. But for now I’d like to share with you Jon’s own words:

META-Medicine**®** is a revolutionary integrative approach to
understanding the stress based root cause, the psychological meaning and
biological process of any illness. It works by using the body’s own
biological survival programming and scientifically maps physical symptoms,
via the brain, back to their primary cause.*

*META-Medicine® is a multi-disciplinary science based on empirical evidence
emerging from more than 30 years of Brain CT Scanning and epi-genetics. It
provides a complete biological-psychological and social evolutionary
health system resulting in a comprehensive understanding of the cause,
meaning and process of any illness. It  has 10 main principles and
redefines our understanding of health, dis-ease, healing and personal
development today.*

Our chat will help you to see how Meta Medicine can be relevant for everyone and give you insight into its practical application. If you feel moved to ask any questions, we’d love to have you call in live.

Jon also  has a blog where he shares thoughts and insights relating to his work and life and I’d really recommend having a look and seeing what he has to say. You can find it at :

And so it’s with great pleasure that I invite you to listen in to the conversation we had together. It goes live on Wednesday March 14th 2012 and after that it’s available in the archive for you to listen to at your leisure. This link takes you right there:

Fiona & Friends: Bliss Talk with Agnessa Piotrovskaja

February 20, 2012 By: fiona Category: Fiona and Friends

I’m so happy to be able to have Agnessa on the show with me on Feb. 29th on Fiona & Friends. Agnessa and I met on Twitter  and she immediately struck me with her beautiful connection to spirit. We then connected on Facebook and ‘chatted’ and then became friends.

You’re going to hear all about her amazing visionary artwork as well as her fascinating project entitled ‘The Break Free Challenge’. She has such a radiant light and this is apparent in all the work she does.

In the meantime you might like to have a look at her blog – The Bloggy Artist – and just read a bit about her journey so far. And she has another website with details of her various ventures at http://piotrovskaja.com

I find her such an inspiration as she is one of those souls who truly walks her talk. We are all here to

Agnessa and The Emerald Virgin

remind each other who we are. That is what I resonate with in Agnessa. She does that.

I’d so love you to meet her.

If you’d like to listen in to our chat on Blog Talk Radio all you have to do is follow this link :

Fiona & Friends: Agnessa Piotrovskaja in Bliss Talk on the Cosmic Web

And for those of you who are unable to be there live, the great news is that you can listen to the recording from the archive at any time afterwards.

We will be opening the lines during the show so if you’d like to chat personally with Agnessa, say hello or ask her any questions, you are very welcome to come and do this. The call number is on the show page and you can connect via Skype if you aren’t in the US.

I thought you’d enjoying watching this video documenting the creation of ‘The Emerald Virgin’ which you can see in the photo here to the right. Enjoy.

And of course you can also listen to some sample of her beautiful voice work on her website. I am hoping to be able to add some excerpts here too so that you can feel into the energy of her music. All recordings are available to buy as MP3′s. I’m sure there will be a lot more on offer in the near future if these first few pieces are anything to go by.

So here are Agnessa’s contact details once again for those of you who would love to connect with her:

February 12, 2012 By: fiona Category: Fiona and Friends

I’m so looking forward to our next episode of ‘Fiona and Friends’. This coming Wednesday I’ll have the very lovely Andrew Davis in the studio talking to me about following the raw food lifestyle.

I met him a few months ago when I took part in Genesis Sunfire’s spiritual bootcamp which many of you will have heard about as I documented the whole process in blog posts and videos.

Andrew began transitioning to the raw food lifestyle 7 years ago and today he has a company which sells raw food products in many high street health food stores around England.

We’re going to be chatting about the challenges that you can meet along the way to ‘going raw’ as well as how Andrew has been building up his business.

And in addition to that, we’re going to be having a friendly chat about all sorts of things and even open the lines to you, the callers, in the second half so that you can ask Andrew any questions you might have or just say hello.

We’d love you to give us a call: toll-free within the US and by Skype for everyone else. The details are on the show page.

So here’s the link to the show: Fiona and Friends: Bliss Talk on the Cosmic Web with Andrew Davis

Fiona and Friends – Bliss Talk on the Cosmic Web

February 01, 2012 By: fiona Category: Bliss Talk on the Cosmic Web, Fiona and Friends

I’m thrilled that ‘Fiona and Friends’ is about to start. After several weeks of thinking constantly about it and not being completely sure of how to do it all, I just totally surrendered, picked a date and jumped in.

So here we are, ready to launch the show.

I’m really feel that I’m being guided by something so much greater than myself. This show has so wanted to be birthed and so here I am , just trusting and showing up and allowing the universe to do its work.

It feels great that Jen Duchene is with me on the first show. When I tuned in, she just appeared and so it was all settled right away. Funny how things have a way of manifesting perfectly when we just get out of the way.

I am excited at the thought of what lies ahead. I am so open to the challenge and know I will meet some absolutely amazing people along the way.

And I know that I am part of the great Mystery.

Thanks for being with me on this journey and being part of its unfolding.

Namaste.

Once a fortnight I will have a friend live with me in the studio, chatting about all sorts of things that interest us both.

In the second half of the show you can call in to the studio and ask my guest or myself any questions relating to what we’ve been chatting about.

My very first guest on my very first show will be Jen Duchene whom many of you have met through the audio interview I published on this site a few months back: Meeting Spirit to Spirit with Jennifer Duchene.

Jen published her first book, ‘Le Chic Cocoon’ and we’ll be taking a look at how things have been in the aftermath of becoming a published author as well as touching on all sorts of topics that we both have fun chatting about.

So come and join in with us. It’ll be fun and I’m really excited.

ON – FEBRUARY 1st 2012

AT – 8pm GMT for 90 minutes (noon PST, 3pm EST, 9am Auckland NZ Feb 2nd)
