Rampaging with Esther and Oscar

My relationship with Abraham-Hicks, specifically Esther Hicks channelling Abraham, goes way back. In doing some research for this article, Amazon reveals that I first bought their books and audios in 2005. My website archives document that I saw Esther at Alternatives in 2008 and started writing about rampages of appreciation in 2009. But, like all things, despite being aware of their excellent work, I hadn’t been using it very much at all lately until Marion reminded us all in I Love My Life. She was off and running and starting to infect others and soon I joined in and, in […]

Tosha Silver’s Abundance Prayer

At the end of January, one of my newsletters was entitled A Weekful of Wonderful Women because that was the story of my week. It included mention of Mary Oliver on her passing, and it concluded with a link to a blog I’d written about my Three Favourite Astrologers. A long-time reader, Hilda, wrote to ask me if I knew of the work of Tosha Silver. Oh boy! Do I? As far back as 2014, I was introduced to Tosha’s book Outrageous Openness by David Barker who said the same, he thought I’d like her, and I’ve blogged about her twice […]

I AM Healed, I AM Healed, I AM Perfect Health

Wayne Dyer was prolific in his lifetime. The Hay House website says that he wrote over 40 books, 21 of which became New York Times bestsellers. “He created numerous audio programs and videos and appeared on thousands of radio and television shows.” I saw him speak live many times. He was funny and clever. I always felt quite a bond with him because he told a story in one of his talks I attended about his alcoholism and regular readers may know my family has an issue with addiction. As he tells the story, he made up his mind to quit […]

Inspired Action

A couple of incidences recently have brought to the forefront of my mind thoughts of inspired action. What I think of as inspired action is when a genius idea occurs to me (all ideas are genius by the way). It might be in the shower, or on a drive, or in a dream or waking from sleep. And I have an idea, it could be quite tiny, in fact it probably will be, but inspired action is when you act on it. Have the idea. Do it. Even if it seems ridiculous or you don’t understand why you are being […]

What To Do When Goals Overwhelm You

I spoke to a much loved and respected client last week who reported fog due to goals overwhelm. There were other mitigating circumstances which I am not going to go into because they are personal to my client. But the concept of goals overwhelm is not. It can affect us all from time to time, and here’s what to do when it does. It is a certain sort of driven high-achiever who likes goals. That used to be me, but no more. If goals interest you, then please proceed directly to my website without passing go and without collecting £200 […]

Manifesting the Bin Men

I might as well start by ‘fessing up that I am a teeny bit obsessed with the dustbins where I live. I think I have always been efficient with trash management wherever I’ve lived, something which gets harder and harder to do as the local Council issue ever-changing directives. Where I live is a garden flat with its own side access which means I have to walk past the dustbins to get to my front door. No-one else in the building has to do that. Thus you might consider that I am the most affected by the bins. I do […]

What Has My Business Ever Done For Me?

Do you remember that funny Monty Python joke – What have the Romans ever done for us?Apart from the aqueduct, sanitation, roads, irrigation, medicine, education, wine, public baths, public order and safety, fresh water, public health and peace? And today I had a similar thought about running my own business. What has it ever done for me? What have I gained and who have I become in thirty nine and a half years of self-employment? I’ve become an entrepreneur. Truth is, I was always one. But I didn’t recognise or acknowledge that for about half of those years. I now […]

I Love My Life Too, Robbie

I am grateful to Rachel Elnaugh for much, and again today for drawing to my attention Robbie William’s latest song from his most recent album. You can tell it’s a Robbie song even before the lyrics start as the intro is reminiscent of Feel. I am by no means Robbie’s greatest fan, musically or in any other sense, though I am admiring of much of his output and certainly in awe of his songwriting abilities and his commercial talent and his gift for artistic collaboration with those who amplify his talent. Oh, and my Mum liked him, fancied him too […]

Is There a Place for your Soul at Work?

Is there a place for your soul at work? That’s the question on the forefront of my mind these days. The entrepreneur that I am now would say yes unequivocally and yet so much “real world” business advice is about: Doing all you can Doing everything you know to do Learning and implementing new and better ways Working harder Working smarter Trying and tweaking until you get it right Pushing up hill Pushing through resistance Learning and assimilating new stuff all the time Struggle and focused endeavour It’s all so left-brained, isn’t it? It’s all so heavy. And yes, most […]

Do You Need To Be Woo Woo To Be A Client?

A new client joined Small Business Big Magic last week and “confessed” to being not very woo woo. Clearly my being woo woo hadn’t put her off because she was a returning client and, although it has been some years since we’ve worked together, she’s kept an eye on me all that time so she’ll know I’m even more woo woo these days, not less. She said: “I don’t know what is in the air, but having had a terrible week last week, this week everything has clicked into place for me, so a great start to my membership. I’m […]
