Coming Home to a New Way of Being

Meeting Spirit to Spirit with Muriel, Singer-Songwriter in Glastonbury

October 13, 2011 By: fiona Category: Meeting Spirit to Spirit

I love being able to connect with wonderfully inspired people and share with you the conversations I have with them. My latest spirit to spirit connection was with Muriel, who is a talented singer-songwriter living in Glastonbury, UK.

It had been several years since I had first heard her sing live at Chalice Well and in the meantime she had been on quite a spiritual journey continuing to create music as she went.

So I loved having the chance to spend a whole day with Muriel, filming, chatting, having lunch and putting our encounter into context so that we could share it with you.

We had a long chat together about her songs and spiritual connection with life, how she grew up and what inspired her to create her albums.  And it was lovely to hear about other passions she has beyond her music.

And there’s a real treat in here too as Muriel sings some of her music for us. She is one of those singers who sounds as good live without any backup as she does on the albums which have been polished and fine-tuned in the studio.

So I’d love to invite you to tune in and listen to Muriel sharing her story and music here – and make sure you return to this post to get all of her contact details below afterwards:

Some of you watching this video may be completely new to Muriel’s music and some of you may have encountered her before. Either way I loved the energy that she brought to this conversation we had and feel that she shared it as if on a first encounter.

You can hear samples from Muriel’s albums on her site called www.murielsings.com

If you’d like to get in touch, you can reach Muriel at:

And if you enjoyed watching her on video, please be sure to leave your comments in the box below and let her know. She’d love to hear from you.

And share this post around too, so that more people can get to know Muriel and her beautiful music. Thanks. x

 

 

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”.’

Meeting Spirit to Spirit via my new Video Interview Series

June 25, 2011 By: fiona Category: Meeting Spirit to Spirit

I am so excited that a new series of mine is starting off in a few days. When I first started making videos of myself speaking, I really became aware of what an impact it has to be there, face to face, with people who don’t even know you.

It instantaneously creates a huge bond and opens the channel for trust and acceptance.

So I realised that this would be a wonderful way to introduce some lovely people to you who have a spiritual message to share and who are part of my vibrant, growing network. Each interview is presented in the form of a chat, which gives me the chance to ask them all sorts of questions about their work. This in turn gives you, the viewer, a great insight into their work as well as a glimpse into their personal world and lets you really meet them spirit to spirit.

There will be some I can’t meet in person and so, as an alternative, I’ll be doing audio interviews with them so that you have the chance of connecting with them through their voices. This is also a very magical way of tuning into people and enjoying their presence.

I’d love to encourage you to engage with these featured guests and ask questions below or let them know if you enjoyed watching. It’s really inspiring to get feedback and keeps the dialogue alive.

I look forward to sharing the launch of this on Monday and hope you’ll enjoy watching these videos as much as I enjoy making them.

Thank you for being there.

Namaste.

Meeting Spirit to Spirit on the Cosmic Web: Tareth – Spiritual Teacher and Healer

May 03, 2011 By: fiona Category: Meeting Spirit to Spirit

A very warm welcome to the first in my series of audio interviews with people who have inspired me. You’re about to listen to me meeting spirit to spirit with Tareth, spiritual healer and teacher who lives in the Isle of Avalon.

Tareth is perhaps known to some of you through his public manifestations of workshops on sound healing or his Blessings from the Source where often perfumed oil is manifested. But his work encompasses much more than this.

I had the pleasure of getting to know Tareth during the time I lived in Glastonbury, when I worked with and for him organising  spiritual events and keeping the day to day tasks in order.

I have fond memories of workshops on sound healing, angels and tuning into ancient civilisations, as well as spiritual retreats in the summer months that were both fun and transformational. But I’d love you to listen to Tareth talking about these things in his own words.

Please click on this link to hear me meeting Tareth spirit to spirit:
