When you’re dating, there’s nothing more excruciatingly awkward than tumbleweed silences between you and your date. Maybe you have nothing in common. Maybe they’re not exactly a sparkling conversationalist. But what can be even worse is when your brain goes blank and you can’t think of a single thing to talk about. When this happens, you’re actually in the middle of an amygdala hijack. The part of the brain responsible for conversation shuts down and you go into fight or flight mode. Discover the quick fix that can help you unfreeze your brain and get the conversation flowing again!

If you’ve been looking for love for a while and you haven’t found it, have you ever thought that there could be part of you that doesn’t actually want a relationship? I know what you’re thinking. ‘What do you mean? Of COURSE I want a relationship! Look at all the effort I’m going to! I’m searching through online profiles, writing to people, going out on dates… why would I put all this effort in if I didn’t want a relationship?’ That may be true, but often when we want something so badly, we don’t look in the opposite direction to see if there’s another part of us that DOESN’T want it. To find out more, read on.
If your love life feels like Groundhog Day with the same negative patterns repeating from one relationship to the next, it's important to figure out why. Often there can be behaviours that you're completely unaware of that are bringing out negative behaviour in the people you date. The great thing is that we can use this reflection as information. People treat us the way we treat ourselves. By changing the way you treat yourself you can evolve out of the pattern forever. Find out how!

Without this skill you can end up in break up after break up, with no relationship ever going the distance. Learning how to focus positively can lead to a lifetime of love, joy and contentment, in a relationship that just keeps getting better and better.
This morning, while I was meditating, I got the inspiration to use a different mantra than the one I normally use. I have practiced many different types of meditation in the past, but the one I find most effective is using a mantra for the mind to fix upon. Usually the mantra is something sacred […]
Over the New Year I was on holiday with my boyfriend’s family in the beautiful French Alps. Nestled in an apartment that overlooked the majestic mountains I witnessed paragliders landing on the clear wide patch of snow in the village. And it sparked a memory. Four months previously, I had imagined what it would be […]
It’s the energy of the New Year! My favourite time to create new intentions and resolutions 🙂 And I’ve discovered a new and easier way of setting goals this year. Using tiny habits! When I first started the blog I was trying to go by the name “Everyday” magic, and post every day. But this […]
Last weekend I traveled to Horsham to see my great friends from art school, Elaine and Dave (and their little boy Harry) and Melba who flew in from Scotland. We’ve traveled across America together, run from a rattle snake, survived scorpions, got held in a casino in Las Vegas, featured in a Jim Carrey movie […]
Woweeee well every time I meet up with Shirley, it seems that the magic just gets bigger and bigger! We’re masterminding all sorts of ideas for workshops and classes and courses. The ideas just seem to be exploding like fireworks. I was sharing with her some of the women that have totally inspired me, and […]
The Oxford University Dictionary defines alchemy as “1. The medieval forerunner of chemistry, concerned with the transmutation of matter, in particular with attempts to convert base metals into gold or find a universal elixir. or 2. A seemingly magical process of transformation or creation.“ I guess the thing that fascinates me more than all other […]
Magical things have been happening lately, and I believe they are happening because I am blocking the flow of universal energy less and less. These ideas are based on the teachings of Abraham-Hicks, but I guess I’ve found my own way of understanding it. I believe that in every moment of every day, a stream […]
There is mystery in all the magic that I can think of. Words are inadequate to describe what is essentially unknowable. They point in a direction, but it is like a finger pointing to the moon. Yesterday I went down to Navan to visit my dear friend. Words always fail me when I try to […]
Wooohooo! Well today was my birthday! Nothing quite like a birthday to weave magic 🙂 and it just also happens to be my 100th day of appreciation! I’ve been writing in a gratitude book every day for the last 3 and a bit months (only missing a few days) and it has really made a […]
Just in from an awesome Law of Attraction workshop tonight with Nick Fon Sing. I can’t tell you how much the word ‘magic’ cropped up in everyone’s stories. So much inspiration! And one story that I’m going to feature on this blog soon 🙂 a super inspiring tale of how two soulmates met! I love […]
Today I went to Green Park with my new bestie Shirley. She is glorious, a riot of strawberry blonde curls, effervescent, just fizzing with life and possibility and mischievous fun. After wandering through the sun dappled park, past the swans and ancient trees, we arrived on a bridge by a lake overlooking the palace domes. […]
As I’ve been writing, I have become aware of the different meanings of the word magic. The Oxford English Dictionary defines it in three ways. “1. The power of apparently influencing events by using mysterious or supernatural forces. 2. Mysterious tricks, such as making things disappear and reappear, performed as entertainment. 3. A quality of […]
Spells are “spoken words that are thought to have magical power, or (the condition of being under) the influence or control of such words”. To me it seems that all words are spells because of the effect they exert on us. Words have a vibration, and that vibration directly affects the cells of our bodies. […]
One of the Abraham processes I’ve been playing with recently is the prosperity game. It’s very simple. Every day you give yourself a hypothetical £1000 to spend. Every day you add £1000, so on Day 2 you have £2000, Day 3 £3000. And on it goes. Surprisingly it has opened up a well of creativity […]
One of the things I’ve been considering is the conditions under which magic happens. I think it happens when you leave a space. There is an opportunity for the universe to get creative when you haven’t already got all the details penciled in. There’s more opportunity for the spontaneous or unrehearsed. For an idea to […]
If I think about places that are magical for me, the top of the list has to be India. With cities filled with temples and gemstones, women draped in colour and jewellery, monkeys and peacocks roaming freely through the streets, mystic poets, water-palaces, festivals, markets filled with spices and flower garlands, rickshaws handpainted with fluorescent […]
Okay, so this is an experiment. And you’re invited to join in! For the past six months I’ve been experimenting with my focus. To me it seems to be the most powerful creative tool that we possess. I’m curious about how deliberate focus changes what you look at. And I’m interested in seeing how it […]
