Is the worry, fear or doubt you carry yours? Or is it someone else’s?

October 9, 2019

I shared this post with the Sanctuary Inner Circle on Facebook and thought it was worth publishing here. If you’d like to join the conversation just head over here for all the details and to sign up today.

“Sometimes the fear won’t go away, so you’ll have to do it afraid.” Unknown

Let’s talk about this quote for a minute.

Particularly – how do you do the thing you know in your heart you’re here to do BUT still carry doubt, fear, worry around it.

The first question to ask, which kind of makes sense to me, is –

Is this doubt, fear, worry mine?

What I mean by that is – Is the worry or fear truly a part of me, or did someone else plant the seed?


An Extremely Important Apology

September 26, 2019

In my last newsletter to the Sanctuary Creators Tribe + in a blog I shared on my website (which has now been removed) I spoke about spiritual awareness and psychic awakening, and shared a definition of each with you.

It is with deep sadness that I acknowledge that I was extremely remiss in not acknowledging correctly the source of that definition.


My weekly ritual to get in the ‘zone’

August 29, 2019

Each Sunday night (or sometimes Monday morning) I spend time exploring what my week ahead looks like. ⁣

I don’t do this the ‘normal’ way, by looking at my diary and seeing what lies ahead (even though I know that’s important and something I will do after this👇🏻). ⁣

Instead I get my (current) two favourite oracle decks, a set of runes + The Book of Runes (scroll down to see a photo!), to see what they have to share with me about the week ahead. ⁣

My process is this. ⁣


Retreat, Broken Noses and Harmony at Home

August 15, 2019
Helen Joy Butler sanctuary quote

Last week while I was away on retreat, chaos reigned at home.

Not ideal right?

I had booked this retreat in many months ago and was *really* looking forward to it.

Six days, meditating, journaling, eating organic whole foods prepared by expert cooks (the best!!), and connecting with like minded people. That for me is Sanctuary right there!

But the Friday before I left, with my bags packed and in the car, I received a phone call from Hubby.

He’d flown down to the snow the day before – and given I was leaving Saturday morning early I had organised Mr 13, stocked the fridge, sorted the dog, all of it. I didn’t need an emergency right now!

But alas, the Universe had other plans!


Why the process to get in the right headspace to do work is just as important as the work itself

August 1, 2019

“The process used to get in the right headspace to do the work is just as important as the work itself.”

I wrote these words in my journal when I was on retreat last year.

I had just done an Akashic Records meditation and was journaling my answers to some questions afterwards, and these words, in part, were what came through.

Take them in for a moment, if you can.

Because in essence what they’re saying is – as a spiritual being having a human experience there is ‘work’ to do to evolve, learn, grow in this lifetime.

But just as importantly, what you do to get yourself in the right frame of mind before you do the work is just as vital.

So let’s break this quote down a little and use an example from my own life.

Writing my next book.
