The Aquarian New Moon - Collaboration and Quirks

The Aquarian New Moon - Collaboration and Quirks

Welcome to the all-new Your SHEro’s Journey Podcast!

Over the past 12 months we’ve been inspired by over 40 SHEo’s who have shared their amazing stories with us, but now it’s time to go deeper.

My intention for the show is that you’ll learn how to connect more deeply with the rhythms of life, so that you can reclaim your power and your rightful place in the world as the wild, mysterious, and deeply connected women that you are.

Today on the show I’m joined by Tabitha Jayne, CEO of Earthself, Author and Applied Psychologist, and Ruby Toad, Ruby Toad.com and Rebel Spirit, as we tap into the Aquarius New Moon, and talk Collaboration and Quirks.

Recognising the Signs - Tree Magic

Recognising the Signs - Tree Magic

I've always 'heard' my intuition, but not always listened to it... But over the last few years I've felt even more connected to my internal compass than ever before, and it's becoming harder to ignore, or even push to oneside.

So when for the past week I've had a strong pull to go and visit a place that I've visited many times before, I had to go - and I'm so glad I did!

The Evolution of The Feminine Archetypes - Part One

The Evolution of The Feminine Archetypes - Part One

I love working with the archetypes. There’s something comforting about drawing on the wisdom of these patterns that have come before us, and that will continue on after us.

They help us to see universal patterns, and to make sense of the word and our experiences.

Working with women, the archetype of The Triple Goddess, The Maiden – Mother – Crone often comes up.

I love this archetype, it values the Maiden, Mother and Crone equally. This is particularly important today, as so much value is placed on the youth of the Maiden in our culture, it can be hard to remember the value that the Mother and the Crone have to offer.

However, the idea of the Maiden – Mother – Crone comes from a time when we had babies at the age of 14, were grandmothers at the age of 30, and didn’t live much past 45.

Not only have we changed biologically, but our choices have also changed, leaving many women feeling that these three traditional concepts no longer truly represent their life experience.

Make Your Own New Moon Bath Salts

Make Your Own New Moon Bath Salts

The New Moon is the Lowest energy of the Moon cycle.

It's often when we want to retreat from the world, and spend time by ourselves, although we may not always get what we want!

It's the perfect time to allow yourself to dream, and set your intentions for the coming month.

Here's a recipe I use to create bath salts that will cleanse your energy, making the space for your new new dreams and intentions to be drawn down.

Make Your Own Full Moon Bath Salts

Make Your Own Full Moon Bath Salts

The Full Moon is the peak energy of the Moon cycle.

It's often used as a time to hold parties and be our most productive and sociable, however, for many people, it can also be a time of overwhelm as the energy continues to build.

Here is a recipe I use to create bath salts that will restore calm and release any negativity or built up frustrations.

Why Every Woman Needs To Know About Red Tents

Why Every Woman Needs To Know About Red Tents

When I was growing up, apart from the obvious anatomy, I never realised I was different from a man, and I certainly never considered myself any less capable than a man.

As a child I saw my mum doing the wallpapering, the painting and decorating, I'd heard her talk of roofing a house and fixing a car - none of which you'd ever find my step-dad doing.

She'd also cook and clean.

At school I excelled academically. I had no reason to think that I was any less intelligent than the boys, especially when my grades and exam results were higher than most of theirs.

In fact I never realised that as a woman, I would ever have been considered less able in any area of my life, just because I was a woman.

Why do people get freaked out by the idea of the ‘weird’ stuff?

Why do people get freaked out by the idea of the ‘weird’ stuff?

Why do people get freaked out by the idea of the ‘weird’ stuff? And by weird, I mean the stuff that science can’t yet explain, so it’s not yet accepted as ‘normal’.

I’ve been into ‘woo woo’, before ‘woo woo’ was even a term.

I’ve had crazy experiences with crystals, and after the Dr’s couldn’t help the eczema that I developed, it completely cleared up after working with an energy healer.

I’ve worked with women and seen nothing short of miraculous changes in them and their lives. You could dismiss this as ‘coincidence’, but I’ve seen too many thousands of them to know that is the case.

Yet despite accepting ‘weird’ stuff as my normal life, nothing was quite as surreal as when I was pregnant and I dreamt that I was given a little boy to look after.

My Story, Your Story, Every Woman's Story

My Story, Your Story, Every Woman's Story

“There comes a time in your life when you finally get it ... When in the midst of all your fears and insanity you stop dead in your tracks and somewhere the voice inside your head cries out "ENOUGH! Enough fighting and crying or struggling to hold on." And, like a child quieting down after a blind tantrum, your sobs begin to subside, you shudder once or twice, you blink back your tears and through a mantle of wet lashes you begin to look at the world from a new perspective.
..........This is your awakening.”

Sonny Carroll

My journey started nearly four decades ago, but my story began centuries before that.

It’s a shared story.

A story that unites every women who is, who has gone before us, and will follow in our footsteps.

When You Miss All The Signs and Have To Laugh at Yourself

When You Miss All The Signs and Have To Laugh at Yourself

When I was a child I loved school.

I can remember when I was 10yrs old telling my friends that I wanted to go to University. I have no idea where this desire came from, as neither of my parents went to University and I don’t ever remember them encouraging me to do so, but it was just something I knew I wanted.

And I did it – twice. Two degrees later and I still love learning.

In fact, sometimes feel a little sad, that there is no way that I can possibly learn about everything that I’m interested in, let alone read all of the books that I want to, in just one lifetime.

Unfortunately my love of education and knowledge wasn’t always celebrated when I was a child, and I can totally relate to this quote from Harry Potter:

The Beginning of My Journey to Becoming a Priestess

The Beginning of My Journey to Becoming a Priestess

This year has been a true 'coming home' for me.

This is a bit of a stream of consciousness, written on the edge of  my bed, in the dark, while my two favourite boys sleep next to me... Let's see where it goes....

When I teach about the stages in The SHEro's Journey, my favourite part is The Return - The stage when we get to return 'home'.

We return home after our adventures, having overcome our trials and tribulations, often a little battered and bruised, but also knowing a bit more about ourselves and how we show up in the world.

Ever since I was a teenager I've longed to know more about myself. Always searching for 'who I am', feeling that there is a greater meaning to life, and always looking for my 'purpose'.
