The reason I haven’t been blogging much over the past few years is because I’ve been hard at work writing a biography about my grandparents and my great uncle Peter Fannin, as well as working on a revision of my grandmothers wildflowers book. All of which takes up most of the writing energy I have! The lovely thing is, I finally have some time off … Continue reading The kurrajong and the orchid
I recently created a special blend for the students in the last workshop I ran, on Boundaries, and I promised them I’d write something for them about the ingredients, so here it is! Blessings! Om Boundaries Blue Boundaries Blue is the colour I find in people’s auras when their boundaries are strong and healthy. This colour provides a smooth edge to the aura that doesn’t allow … Continue reading Boundaries Aura Spray

Two years ago I had a wildflower adventure in Kakadu. My birthday brings the memories back because I had my birthday out there under a tree on the escarpment with two incredible women who kept me alive and amazed me with the blessings they kept pulling out of their backpacks. Grapefruit tastes like manna from heaven when you are thirsty from shock and you still … Continue reading Wildflower Spirit Journey through Kakadu
When I see Banksia, I see a psychic image of a young aboriginal girl combing her hair. Banksia as a spirit remedy combs tangles out of the vertical fibres in our aura. This can remove knots and tangles caused by over-thinking and “getting our wires crossed”, which can happen when there are misunderstandings between ourselves and others, but also when we have experiences that scramble or confuse … Continue reading Banksia Flower Spirit – Awakening the Hero within

While writing Wildflower Spirit Journey, there was a subtle theme that kept popping up for me over and over again: holism. I saw it in my mother’s nature-based spirituality, the Aboriginal art I was surrounded by as a child, and the yin-yang teaching style given to me by my spirit guides, Khryse and Tomas.

My grandmother was a doctor. My great-uncle was an arid zone botanist. And there have been many times through my life I have been tempted to walk in their footsteps, but my love for holism has steered me in other directions.

Here is a snippet from my book…. … Continue reading Healing Meditation : Fan Flower
