Right now I’m living my best life.

Right now, I’m living my best life… Picture the scene- It’s Christmas, me and the rest of the Petrie clan are all gathered around the table - it’s game time and I start things off with a new game called, Vertellis. According to the box it is all about “less small talk and more genuine conversations”.  I’ll admit, I’m nervous about bringing it out - I catch my teenagers eye rolling, but everyone else is game, and then, so are…

Circle of light 29th March 2020

Last Sunday morning, I held The Circle of Light healing and meditation session, as a FREE online event on Facebook Live - from my home to your home- from my sanctuary to yours. It was a beautiful experience. I know not every one is on facebook and so that is why I've uploaded the session onto You Tube- If you want to take some time to journey inwards, and do some healing work, this is what you will need to…

What if nothing has actually gone wrong?

I know I know, this might seem an appalling thing to say during this time of the Covid 19 situation, but don't shoot the messenger. I wasn't keen on this title this either, but shirking away from it was choosing fear, and my promise to you as we go through this together, is to choose love- always. Before I get into that, I wanted to update you on the Circle of Light.. Tomorrow on Sunday March 29th 10.30am-11.30am Facebook Live…

My book baby is 6 months old – and some exciting news!

Greeting to you dear barefoot readers, from a somewhat frosty day in North Berwick- the sand was genuinely frosty as I went for my morning swim. But Six months ago, on a sunny warm day at the Detox Health Beauty Festival, which took place at Archerfield walled gardens, I launched my first book Permission To Shine . For the second year running despite days of rain and wind before, the sun shone on us all day long. The feedback I…

How will you answer nature’s invitation this autumn?

If you haven't got your copy of Permission To Shine yet, you can do so either locally at Norden on the High Street in North Berwick, along I might add with the Permission To Shine card deck (as featured above). You can also…

You are The Star, The Director and The Producer of your own movie.

Happy Friday to you dear barefoot readers. When my kids were younger we used to call it 'Friday night movie night' - so as this will be my last post for a while- this card feels like the best thought to go out with. I've have always loved the movies. I get so many messages from them -I get many of those 'A Ha' moments. Sometimes instantly other times days weeks or even months later. But what if I told that in our every…

I've recorded it here on Soundcloud and its in text below- So tomorrow will be my last daily post for a little while. I have written consistently now for over 2 months…

Its vital to enjoy your resting place.

Yesterday I wrote about doubt and the view our Divine self can see and it reminded me of another blog post I had written some time ago.

One day as…
