A recent walk past my local newsagent left me in no doubt as to the time of year. It seems that the covers of every lifestyle and fashion magazine features last-minute workout plans and crash diets to get their readers beach-ready.
To be sure, summer holidays are just around the corner. And whatever you might be thinking about now, it would seem that front and centre of our to-do list should be not only slimming down so that we can squeeze into that bikini or swimming trunks but getting all those essentials to look great this beach season. You didn't have anything else to do - did you?!... Continue reading »
When I was a teenager, I became interested in photography. I was so keen that eventually I managed to convince my parents that an unused part of the basement could be turned into the ideal darkroom. For the next several years, I always had my trusty Canon 35 mm around my neck.
I then went to university and my interests changed. But recently the photographer in my soul woke up again and I found myself compelled to buy a new Canon. This time it's digital and not black-and-white film but I'm quickly getting reacquainted with the keen amateur I was all those years ago. Once again, I'm developing my photographer's eye...

Before I chose to focus my professional pursuits exclusively on my intuitive practice, I had a career as a management consultant not only running my own company but advising major international companies.
Among other responsibilities, I interviewed candidates and hired staff. And when I was just starting out myself in this capacity, my boss gave me some very sound advice. He said that I should never be fooled by someone claiming to have, for example, ten years of experience. The secret, as he pointed out, was to discover whether that meant ten progressive years of learning or simply that first year repeated ten times over... Continue reading »
This has been a very wet, cold and overall dull month. Here in Spain the weather has ranged from snow, sleet and hail to thunder, lightning and monsoon-like rains. Only occasionally do we get to glimpse the sun and then only for a few minutes before the grey clouds return and the heavens once again open.
It the kind of weather when you have no option but to hunker down. It's also the kind of weather that can spell disaster for certain New Year's Resolutions. If you're still going to the gym, I applaud you. If you're still managing to stick to that diet, then bravo. It really is hard to "do the right thing" when it's so dark and frankly miserable outside... Continue reading »
Scientists say: A sense of meaning and purpose is key to a long life.
I say: Intuition can give you this, and so much more!
It comes as no surprise that what we eat can affect how long we live. For years we've been told to increase fruit and veg in our diets and to avoid processed foods and sugar. Exercise too is now accepted as crucial to a long and healthy life. But recently researchers at the UK's University College London discovered that having a sense of meaning and purpose in life could literally add years to your life.
In other words, keeping fit and eating right is only part of the equation of long-term health. Just as important is the belief that we are living in a way that has meaning and that we possess a sense of purpose in what we are doing from day to day... Continue reading »
The statistics just keep on coming.
Let's get the bad news out of the way first.
For years we've been told that we should watch what we eat, get more exercise, not drink so much and manage our stress better. And yet, the message simply doesn't seem to be getting through to the majority of us. Just this week, in the UK, the latest figures show that over 60% of the population is overweight. 40% of the UK population should be taking statins (according to the latest NHS guidelines). And 1 out of every 2 children born after the year 2000 can expect to develop type-2 diabetes during their lifetime... Continue reading »
It was about fifteen years ago that I first heard the term "medical intuition" and "medical intuitive". It was in London and a friend of mine from The College of Psychic Studies wanted me to attend a lecture with her. At first, I was more than a little reluctant as the word "medical" seemed anathema to all that I was interested in and felt I stood for.
To me - at the time - anything even associated with the so-called medical world was tainted with what I had experienced when diagnosed in my early twenties with an incurable form of degenerative joint disease - one which according to my doctors (as well as second and third opinions) would leave me at worst crippled in a wheel chair and at best reliant on heavy-duty pain killers for the rest of my life.
But there was a part of me that just knew deep down inside that such a fate was not going to befall me. I just knew that I could and would 'fix' myself. At the time, I wasn't part of what you might call the New-Age-metaphysical scene. I was still a fully fledged member of the established corporate world. And while everyone I knew at the time seemed ready to accept as gospel what the doctors were saying, a deep part of me pricked up its ears and began to lead me down a path of self-examination, self-discovery and self-healing that - unbeknownst to me - lie at the heart of medical intuition...

Earlier this week I was contacted by a man who is really struggling in life and is searching for insights, advice and guidance. In this instance, he wasn't ready for a reading or a session. Instead, he simply wanted to share his experience of getting a reading from another medical intuitive he had found on the web. He summed up his telephone reading in two words: Absolutely horrible! He explained that this so-called intuitive had simply asked him question after question and seemed to parrot back the information this man had himself said. He got nothing from this reading. Worse than that, he is now left wondering whether all intuitives out there work this way. As if!... Continue reading »
