Welcome, welcome dear friends, welcome to the newsletter for December

Season's Greetings

However you celebrate at this time of year, or if you choose not to at all, the ending of the calendar year has some significance for most of us.

Maybe you are reflecting on the end of an academic year if you are in New Zealand or Australia, looking forwards to the summer holidays. Maybe you are anticipating all the busy-ness and connections of Christmas with family and friends. Or, you may be alone, through choice or through circumstances. 

However you are spending December, I send you warm virtual hugs and greetings.

Reflections: Full Cycle

The full title of my last workshop in the 'Stepping into Your Power' series here in Cornwall, at the Blue Lotus Therapy Centre, was 'Full Cycle - Being You - Return to Peace'. As we had flowed through a whole year together, we focused on one part of the 'Dare to Blossom Power Flower' in each workshop. At the same time, I was aware of all the parts of the flower, supporting, holding the strength of the whole as we gathered together. 

As I hold these gatherings every other month, we had six of them, and so the last was an opportunity to return to our centre point, to peace.

In the words of 'Compass Rose Speaks', my poem that seems to be deepening and strengthening in power each time I speak the words, "Return your attention to your Centre Point, to Peace. Grounded, Balanced. I am your Compass Rose". Each time I end, I remind those listening, in person or on-line, that your Compass Rose is your inner wisdom. Not external to yourself, but truly the deep heart of you, the centre, the guiding star within.

By being the real you, the authentic you - the you who is the author of your life - you return to peace. From that centre point of peace you are strongly grounded and balanced and able to choose the path forward that is right and true for you.

For you, in your journal or meditation:

  • What is reaching full cycle for you?
  • Will that cycle continue as the cycles of nature do? Or will something new come in to replace it? What would you like that to be?
  • Settle into your heart, your centre, allow your breath to slow and deepen, and listen to the voice of your Compass Rose. What is she telling you?

Plans for 2019

As I enter this process myself, I am feeling my way towards what wishes to emerge in 2019. Last month I told you about the Pathway to Power Coaching Programme. The full details are now available here.

At the beginning of December I am hosting two free group gatherings, through Zoom video-confereincing, on Tuesday 4th December at 2.30 pm, and on Friday 7th December at 11.00 am (all times are UK time, GMT). The details are on Facebook through the Dare to Blossom business page (just look under Events), or if you prefer not to use Facebook, simply reply to this email if you would like to join us.

During those calls I will draw cards for each person (one, two, or three, depending on how many people join us), and offer you the chance to share a Magic Carpet Ride guided visualisation. The calls are an introduction to the January Dare to Blossom Mastermind Circle: "Take off into 2019 on your Magic Carpet". We will be getting away from the tyranny of 'New Year resolutions', and seeing where the insights offered by the Magic Carpet process take us. Click the link for full details and to claim your space.

Following that Circle we will begin the full year of unfurling the Power Flower once again in a Mastermind group. Details of that will be available very soon.

Events and ways to Dare to Blossom

Cornwall Workshops: The cycle begins again at the Blue Lotus on Saturday morning, 19th January, beginning with Peace

Root and Branch Listenings are available at any time as a one-off, or as a quarterly subscription. If you choose to subscribe,  you will receive your personal Listening four times a year. The next issue will be in December for the Winter Solstice. I will be starting work on those very soon, so if you would like to be sure of receiving yours in time for the Solstice, buy yours now.

Point of Focus Membership: if you prefer a monthly timescale with Dare to Blossom Cards drawn for you to reflect upon, with the option of adding on one-to-one coaching calls with me, the Point of Focus subscription may be for you. Some people find subscribing to these and the 'Root and Branch Listenings' together a valuable source of support.

Thank you dear friends for visiting with me again this month and sharing my musings.

Until next time,

with love,
