The Cosmic Web

Coming Home to a New Way of Being

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.

 

Fiona and Friends – Bliss Talk on the Cosmic Web: Launching with Jen Duchene

January 27, 2012 By: fiona Category: Fiona and Friends

Yay! After a long wait I have at last got the wheels turning for the second slot on Blog Talk Radio.

This will be a Wednesday show which runs for 90 minutes from 8pm GMT and will also be available as an archived recording afterwards for those of you can’t listen in live.

Once a fortnight I will have a friend live with me in the studio, chatting about all sorts of things that interest us both. I’ll be doing some informal interviewing and having fun sharing the space with all of you. 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)

***IMPORTANT NOTE: Please wind forward to 20 mins as technical difficulties meant we couldn’t get properly connected until then. We had to surrender and go with the flow! :-)

And here’s how you can listen in to the show:

Meeting Spirit to Spirit with Jennifer Duchene: Blending Lifestyle, Laughter and Butterflies in ‘Le Chic Cocoon’

September 26, 2011 By: fiona Category: Meeting Spirit to Spirit

It’s a real pleasure to be able to introduce you to wonderfully inspiring people on this site and share things with you that I have loved and benefited from.

Today I’m putting the well-deserved spotlight on Jennifer Duchene, a highly creative woman who calls herself the Makeover Mixtress. I recall conversations with her ranging from spirituality, lifestyle and indulging in the senses, as well as all the practicalities of life.  In fact, I don’t think there’s anything you couldn’t have a wonderful conversation with her about.

And I have a real treat to share with you – it’s a conversation we had together where Jen gives you a glimpse into her life, telling you about what inspires her, what’s important to her in life and above all, how she came to write her amazing first book, ‘Le Chic Cocoon – 7 Steps to Creating Your Selfish Space’. It was inspired by Virginia Woolf and how she saw that women needed a room of their own to fully be themselves in. Jen masterfully combines her expert knowledge of design and home living with the spiritual needs of a woman.

I’m including here a short extract from her book which will hopefully give you food for thought and encourage you to read more. And there are details of her upcoming booklaunch as well as information which help you find out more about her work and contact her.

But first I’d love to invite you to listen in to our conversation:

———————————————————————————————-

Here is an extract from her book which describes her experience of shifting around elements in a room devoid of energy. I think it’s a fabulous analogy of how to deal with life:

Excerpt from Le Chic Cocoon

‘We look at our problems and think there’s no way we can do this differently. It’s just like looking at a room and thinking there’s no way to move these pieces and make the room look different because it’s never going to work.

Jennifer with her latest book 'Le Chic Cocoon'

I have discovered that we just need to jump in, just decide to do it, and miraculously it works. When I do a room rearrangement, I don’t plan it.

I have no idea what I’m going to do when I get there because I don’t know what needs to be done until I am physically moving the room around. I don’t let myself pre- plan it. It sets up all these pre-conceived ideas and blocks out any chance to be surprised by creating something amazing. When you go into your own life, when you go into a room, just think, well, let’s see what I can do.

Many times, I think to myself, ―I don’t know what I’m going to do here. It’s just such a hard room. How am I going do it? There’s nothing to work with.‖ Then I get stuck in, start moving stuff around, and suddenly everything falls together by itself. Sometimes this is how we need to look at life and our cocoons or potential, without knowing the answers. We just need to make the first move. It’s almost like the river runs the other way, and then you say, “I never would have thought of that”.’
