The Cosmic Web

Coming Home to a New Way of Being

Fiona & Friends: Mark Keane in Bliss Talk on the Cosmic Web

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

If you have no idea of what kundalini yoga or dance is, please come and tune in to this week’s show. I have the great pleasure of having Mark Keane in the studio with me and he’s going to be telling us about the kundalini energy and how we can harness it in our daily lives.

Mark teaches classes in the Wilder St. Studio in Bristol and is available for individual tuition too.

He also runs an event called Conscious Clubbing which revolves around people connecting consciously and having a good time without having to lose themselves to alcohol, drugs or the like.  When you attend one of these events, not only will you be able to connect with like-minded people who love to merge with the love on the dance floor, but there might also be the opportunity to be part of drumming circles, do group meditations or even join in with some kundalini dance.

Tune in on Wednesday evening on Blog Talk Radio at 8pm GMT (noon PST, 3pm EST) and listen to how Mark got involved with his life work. Find out how unleashing your kundalini through dance and yoga can bring about amazing change for the better in your life and take the opportunity to have a chat with Mark.

Here’s the link to the show: Mark Keane in Bliss Talk on the Cosmic Web.

And for those of you who are unable to join us, the recording is available in the the archive for you to listen to at your leisure and share with your friends.

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:

Bliss Talk on the Cosmic Web

November 17, 2011 By: fiona Category: Bliss Talk on the Cosmic Web, Inspirations

I’m so excited about all the new changes that have been happening here over the past few weeks. But the one that stands out more than all the others is my venture into live radio shows.

I’ve created a Bliss Talk on the Cosmic Web page on this blog which you can see by clicking on the tab above. I’ve included a video I made telling you all about the show that now runs on Sunday evenings at 8pm GMT.  I hold this space for you all to call in and receive a short soul reading  or general spiritual guidance. Click on the link and find out more.

And so I’m going to extend this energy onto a mid-week slot too, most probably Wednesday. Many of you will have listened to or watched the interviews that I have published on this site and know the type of work that I do.

I thought it would be a lovely idea to transfer some future interviews onto the live slot on Blog Talk Radio. That way many of you can listen in live and will have the opportunity to ask questions in the second half of the show. It makes our connection so much more dynamic and vibrant.

I feel that having this interaction will take things to a completely new level.

And what sort of things can you experience in the new show? I’ll be inviting beautiful souls I resonate with to share their lives and work with us in relaxed dialogue. Music, books, therapies, healing, community projects will be on the agenda and many other topics.

In the meantime I am already exploring new avenues and allowing spirit to speak to me in whatever way is most appropriate. Life is becoming much more inspiring and I am loving the challenges that are presenting themselves every step of the way.

Thanks for being here and helping to make this experience what is it.

If there’s anything in particular that you would love to hear on the new radio show, please share it here. I’d love to hear from you and am really open to suggestions that are in alignment with this project. Thanks.

 

 

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:

Click here:  Audio Interview with Jennifer Duchene

———————————————————————————————-

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:

I hope you enjoy this conversation and would love you to leave your comments in the box below. If you’d like to find out more about Tareth’s work, ask him any questions or book a place at one of his workshops, please contact him at this email address and have a look at his website:

You can also contact Tareth’s assistant Helen on 01458-833929. Please leave a message if no-one is there and you will be called back as soon as possible.

Taking Action Steps Despite the Apparent Competition

November 14, 2010 By: fiona Category: Taking action

As I continue on this path of exploration I realise that I am becoming easily distracted by what lots of other people around me are doing. Sometimes I imagine these things are relevant and other times they are completely random.

I’m aware that my subconscious beliefs are dictating what I do and how I do it. I imagine that I’m not doing things fast enough or well enough. And then I start to get nervous and find myself coming off course.

Since I have started this blog and made a statement as to what I would like to work towards, it’s amazing how many examples of similar things have begun to manifest in my world. If I were to allow these things to block my view and undermine my confidence, I would never get going.

It is so true that Richard Branson would never have got to where he is if he had been put off by some of the larger companies that were already doing what he was aiming to do.

I’ve found it a bit unnerving when people closer to home have strangely started doing things I have talking about doing, suddenly, totally out of the blue. But when I take a moment to find stillness, I see that the universe is simply challenging me, urging me forward, helping me to get clarity and take steps where I might have stood still in my moments of indecision. It’s so easy to act like a rabbit sitting there frozen in the light cast by the oncoming cars.

The particular people I am referring to are, in my eyes, doing a fabulous job. I could really feel quite small and insignificant alongside them. ……or not.

As I contemplated my feelings of unworthiness this morning, I realised that this could always go two ways. Either I withdraw, deciding that I won’t take the challenge. Or I become galvanized into action, deciding to take others’ actions as an example and overcoming my fears to move forward.

I’m opting for moving forward and am now making a mental note to set something into action that I was procrastinating about.

So thank you to those of you who have unknowingly stepped forward and got me going again. You’ve done me a service and I’m grateful for that.
