As a respected author and teacher, much of my work consists of ‘blended perspectives’ – the perspective of my human self as she experiences the day-to-day world, and the perspective of that non-physical part of us that offers itself when I can sit and truly listen.
When I offer myself as an open vehicle for that broader, non-physical reality to come through, all seems well with the world and I have no hesitation in offering love to all. When I close myself down, becoming pre-occupied with the practical demands of human life, I sometimes forget that there’s another way of seeing the world.
I write both fiction and non-fiction, all of which draw on the broad variety of traditions and influences that have fascinated me, and continue to do so. My books, articles and therapy work are my way of introducing readers to another world – a world which integrates non-physical realms of energy and spirit with our material reality. I see all as spiritual – our physical bodies, our relationships, our sex lives, even the things we don’t like about other people and the world. So how do I live as a woman, mother, shaman, writer, lover and simple human being with that kind of perspective?
I’m intrigued with people – what makes us tick, how we can often struggle against expressing our deepest essence and yet feel compelled to do so. Finding our individual ‘truth’ is a challenge in itself in a busy world filled with distractions, but giving ourselves permission to express that truth into the world is an even bigger challenge. And this is what much of my writing is about – finding and expressing our truth. But I also like to play devil’s advocate at times, challenging pre-conceived ideas of how things must be.
In my writing I get a chance to share with you other perspectives on the world. It’s not about who’s right or wrong – we all have our unique ways of seeing things. But perhaps some of my writing will encourage a greater openness and awareness in the world and, eventually, greater love. And perhaps we can share some smiles along the way.
Looking forward to our journey together,
PS As I’m based in Ireland but frequently writing for a North American audience, my writing is a mixture of British English and American English. You will have to be patient with the different spellings!
