A 2020 Astrological Update

A 2020 Astrological Update

YEAR 2020 FORECAST UPDATE As stated in my 2020 Astrological Forecast back in November 2019 this year (2020) is an Emperor Year. It is the first year of a two year cycle. The ‘Emperor’ tries hard to establish rules of order. There are however those that will rebel against the imposition of their freedoms because of the dictates of those in authority/others. This has been evident to me with the appalling behaviour/panic caused by this dreadful virus sweeping the globe. Lessons focus on learning how to live with the rules. Next year is a ‘Hierophant’ Year. It is the second year in the power/authority cycle. People learn best through adversity however painful. We are faced with problems to solve. We need to listen to our inner self. Do what you know is right for the good of all. We need to...

Healing the Child Within

Healing the Child Within

The wounded child within us is always present, waiting for us to turn our attention inwards towards its needs.   Most people have experienced some type of trauma as a child. These experiences may vary, i.e. having your favourite toy thrown in the bin or experiencing detachment through being placed in childcare.  More significant and painful experiences are incurred by  parental separation or divorce, abandonment, rejection or abuse. Whatever the degree of the trauma, the painful experiences are unknowingly repressed by us when we come into adulthood. These psychological wounds remain in our cellular memory during our lifetime – the impacts of the wounds are long lasting.   The wounds of childhood may reveal itself in adult years through: relationship difficulties, trust issues, self esteem, anger issues, physical ailments, depression & anxiety – it may even impact on a sexual level. We...

Merle Tait – Intuitive Art – Wrap up

Merle Tait, Intuitive Art Teacher, facilitated an Intuitive Art & Guide drawing workshop at COSE in September 2019 The contents of the workshop included a guided meditation to attune with our Spirit Guides, helpers and Inspirers. Merle then guided the workshop participants in drawing the foundations of a face portait. With the basic prompts of  the background color of the portrait and then eyes and facial features, we were encouraged to trust in our intuition, holding no perceptions of any expectations of what we wanted to draw, but allowing ourselves to be open and receptive to our intuitive and creative flow. The result of the workshop came up with some amazing art work and images of guides and Spirit impressions. Merle followed up with passing on Intuitive Readings on each participants Art Work in which a lot of insight was received....

Reflections from our Minister - Rev David Finlay

Reflections from our Minister – Rev David Finlay

REFLECTIONS OF THE MINISTER Over recent weeks have been drawn by Spirit to reflect on the letter , “i”, not in the context of the perpendicular pronoun but in words such as inspired, impressed, intuition, instinct and imagination. All of these words relate to the unconscious energies we sense in our daily lives but also when we are consciously working with Spirit. To elaborate, absolutely everything in the Universe seen and unseen is energy. We are energy and so being a part of the whole energetic picture we sense and react to shifts in this sea of energy surrounding us. On a physical level at times we are drawn seemingly like a magnet to some persons whilst we are repulsed by others without perhaps having any exchange with them other than them having been in the vicinity of our extended energetic...
