Emotions are energy in motion (e-motion). Emotions may not have a tangible mass as expressed in Albert Einsteins’ equation E = MC2  but they certainly carry an energetic resonance (an energetic imprint or signature).

The teachings of world religions go a bit further. They talk about the idea of Karma (the law of cause and effect). This suggests that we eventually experience the consequences of our thoughts and actions. In one form or other, the energy we project returns to us.

Modern technology enables information to be disseminated rapidly and for us to respond to it very quickly. More than ever there is a requirement for humanity to take responsibility for its thoughts and actions. This applies not just to world leaders, the media and social media users, but to all of us; for with each thought and emotion, we are projecting energy.

One unifying thread of universal truth is that we can change the energetic resonance of our world for the better through the energy we project in our thoughts and actions. We have the ability to improve our lives and the lives of others through projecting love, positivity and compassion. Such thoughts allow energy to flow and we create a much safer and equitable world as we begin to understand we are all connected at some level or other.


Political negotiation has historically (and still is largely) based upon strategies of mistrust that are  based on three assumptions.

The first is that we are separate from each other. The second is that there are not enough resources for everyone, and the third is that the outcome of any negotiation results in having a winner and a loser.

These strategies are driven by powerful institutional structures that influence or govern all aspects of human affairs (political, religious, business, health…etc) and over time they have created their own energetic signatures (cultures) reflective of the ways in which they operate.

The incoming Aquarian age requires humanity to work together to tackle challenges that are global in context. Everything is now interconnected - everything dependent on the actions of someone or something else. Rather than working from positions of mistrust, separation, self interest and resisting the idea of change, we are asked to move forward in a different and higher way.

Political interaction provides humanity with an opportunity for spiritual growth if we understand that we are not separate, that there are enough resources if we share them and that their needn’t be winners and losers; we can all be winners. Successful political interaction based on unity, respect and compassion will bring more meaning to our lives as we are driven forward with a higher sense of purpose.


What am I? Why am I here? Questions that each of us have probably asked ourselves sometime in our lives. What do we really know of the human condition? We are surrounded by the mystery of life but how much do we really understand.

As a result of materialistic philosophy in science we might believe that to be human is to be nothing more than a third dimensional physical being. Science tells us that the universe was formed out of the “Big Bang” when matter must of been formed out of pure energy. The result is a universe that is a multi-layered dynamic entity comprised of energy (Creative Intelligence and Being) from which (or Whom) all manifestation in matter derives.

Matter represents the densification of energy and whatever the form it takes, it is still part of a universal matrix of energy. Our physical bodies are manifestation in matter, but we also have a soul and self consciousness. These are aspects of the self that extend beyond the body and physical plane. By default, human beings are multidimensional. We are a combination of body, soul and spirit with part of us that is self conscious (ego) that part of us that says I am - all co-existing in and out of the physical plane.

We are all too aware that the physical body ages and ultimately dies and with it the physical aspect of the self. The remaining aspects of our consciousness return to the spiritual (non physical) planes and live on and is therefore infinite. There was never a time when we did not exist and there will never be a time when we cease to exist.

A life in a physical body presents an opportunity to develop consciousness at a dense energetic level. Anyone in a physical body, is taking a journey of exploration through the challenge of experience,  the aim is to develop individual consciousness that also contributes to the collective consciousness of the universe.

Whilst in a body we have freewill and the ability to account for our actions, blending the physical with the spiritual. Understanding we are multidimensional and part of a multi layered interconnected universe of energy / mind / consciousness can change our outlook on life. When we understand that everything is part of this great infinite whole (a universal mind) we are able to live a life living as oneness with all creation and with a spiritual world view.


Part of the Celtic ‘Wheel of the Year’ (a seasonal calendar), Imbolc or Candlemas marks the beginning of Spring and falls on February 1st or 2nd. Imbolc means, literally, 'in the belly' (of the Mother). This is Brigid’s season, the Celtic goddess who in later times became revered as a Christian saint. The powerful figure of Brigid the Light-Bringer plays a role in both pagan and Christian celebrations.

Like many festivals, the Imbolc celebrations centre on the lighting of fires. Fire is perhaps more important for this festival than others as the lighting of fires celebrates the increasing power of the Sun over the coming months. For the Christian calendar, this holiday was reformed and renamed 'Candlemas' when candles are lit to remember the purification of the Virgin Mary.

At this time rituals are performed for the security and protection of the fertility of the fields. The success of the new farming season was traditionally of great importance. As winter stores of food were getting low Imbolc rituals were performed to harness divine energy that would ensure a steady supply of food until the harvest six months later. It was also a time when divination rituals took place to forecast the weather for the year to come.

At Imbolc the Earth is no longer still, but stirring with buds forming on trees and spring bulbs pushing up. This is a time to prepare for changes ahead and a time of healing. It is the time to get outside and reconnect with the Earth, traditionally by visiting holy wells and weaving Imbolc rings from tree cuttings. When visiting a holy well take a piece of ribbon with you to soak in the water, make your promise, prayer or intention, then tie your ribbon to a nearby tree. Ask the tree permission to take cuttings to weave your ring.

Human actions are best when they reflect the actions of nature, so as the world slowly springs back into action it is time to tackle any small tasks that are neglected through the busy year. Rituals and activities might include the making of candles, planting spring flowers, and the all important spring clean! Make your own Brigid’s crosses and hang them up, especially in the kitchen where her influence can bless your food. Meditate upon what you would like to see grow in health and strength this year: for yourself, your family, your community and the Earth.


The ancient commandment “Man Know Thyself” was inscribed above the portal of the ancient Greek Temple at Delphi, and it is no less important today than when it was written in the First Millennium B.C. Everyone is hungry for "self- knowledge"; character analysis, personality tests, astrology, various “self-realisation" techniques; all have widespread appeal in an age where personal values are increasingly being threatened. Yoga, religion, meditation etc. all aim to increase awareness of the deeper levels of our being.

Increased concern with "self" in the highest sense (eg. respect for life and individual freedom) has led to an awakening (or should one say re-awakening) of a concern with the whole planet as a similarly living conscious “self”, the “Earth Goddess”. Increasingly people feel respect, even reverence, for the earth as a living being. They feel that there is a limit to how much we can violate her with our life-destroying technological practices before she decides to shake us off her back.

It is not difficult to see that the outer threats to human dignity that are currently in the news; disease, climate change, warfare, terrorism, famine, waste of resources,  corruption etc. are, at least in part, a reflection of our own inner violence, greed, selfishness and apathy (naturally, we ourselves are not responsible - it is always these qualities in others, never ourselves!)

The ancient saying: "As above, so below!" can be expressed in many ways. Essentially, we are all told that the whole cosmos is reflected in man; everything which is outside man (the whole of nature) can be found inside him too, and vice versa. Hence self-knowledge leads to knowledge of the world, and other people, while true knowledge of outer things illuminates our own essential nature.

To get to know ourselves a little better is inseparable from getting to know the world, but in addition, if we proceed in the right way, we gain the power to be more useful, to serve more effectively the needs of the world.

If we consider that we are spiritual beings grounded in a physical body and therefore multi-dimensional; we can attune to a web of universal energy and consciousness. By raising our consciousness to operate on the highest spiritual level, we can communicate through love, resonating with the universal energy that unites us all. This is the key to understanding who we are and why we are here.
