While writing Wildflower Spirit Journey, there was a subtle theme that kept popping up for me over and over again: holism.

At the time of the reading I was studying naturopathy and I had no idea I would be working alongside this lady six months later doing my own readings for people.
Sticky Brain Syndrome is a tongue-in-cheek syndrome that I invented this morning in the shower, after telling my mind, in no uncertain terms, to shut up because I was entirely fed up with hearing the same sentence repeated over and over again. Thankfully, it listened and dutifully went quiet.
