Challenges for the year ahead

So far it seems to have been a very odd week so far.  Nevertheless some things have been accomplished.  We have moved out Progress Development Awareness Group and Closed Circle to 7pm on a Tuesday evening.  After taking a vote it seemed that the majority of the group preferred that time in the Winter months and I reiterate if the snow comes down watch the church website  (www,woodfordchurch.com) as the church itself may be closed.  We will text members of the circles individually if we get icy weather as many of you know we travel from the fringes of Kent to run our circles.  Sometimes where we live is like an ice rink and we will not take a chance in that weather, but go to ground.  Equally it is a steep road to the church which can get icy and we would hate anyone to have an accident. The thing I like about our group is the support and encouragement they give each other and last night was no exception.  So well done Tony, Sandra, John, Irene, Steve and Sandra,  We were sorry Carol, Alex, Naomi, Imran and Seema could attend.  We wish both Alex and Carol a speedy recovery we hope Alex's operation doesn't get cancelled next time. We would also like to thank Jo for thee lift back to Woodford Station as its a real nuisance the London side of South Woodford is closed as yours truly can't do the bridge with my vertigo as well as lympoedema. 
 I have also become a follower of Lucya Starza's blog which is crammed with useful information and ideas (http://www.badwitch,co.uk).  It is well worth reading I have pinched one of Lucya's idea where she has made 10 things she wants to achieve in 2019 and we wish her well in her MA studies.  My intention list of 12 things:-

1.  Clearing the clutter from our home
2.  Go to workshops with new tutors
3.  Visit a new church once a month
4.  Learn to do needle felting
5.  Learn to do arm knitting
5.  Lose weight
6.  Create new creative spiritual workshops
7.  Pay it forward once a month
8.  One day a week for us doing something we both want to do.
9.  Start my Book of Shadows
10. Moving home
11. Finding somewhere permanent for the Rainbow Healing Sanctuary
12. Walking at least 20 minutes a day when the weather gets better.

We are still knitting and crocheting  and we have poppets and naughty Nordic Gnomes at the moment.  Please contact us on  YourCreativeSelf@outlook.com or 07927 288904.  We can be booked for workshops, one to ones and serving churches.

Last Thursday as usual we were not disappointed with Jack Gale' stories and poems.  We will keep you up to date with anymore of these evenings he does and any other interesting events.  Kim Towler looked after everyone and if you are in the vicinity of Wicca Moon in Eltham do look in and say hello.  I am sure you will be made welcome. 
Do note our Tuesday evening circle has now moved its slot to 7 pm instead of 7.30 pm.  It will insure everyone gets home a fraction earlier.  I am sure that on these dark nights it is most welcome and we must thank Imran for the lift back to Woodford Station last week. It was very welcome.  There is now room in our Progressive Development Group and we  welcome new students.  Do take a look at the website as there are masses of very interesting workshops in the pipeline.  We have lots of new workshops planned so do come along and introduce yourselves (www.woodfordchuch.com).  Our new facebook group has now grown to over 100 and we are hoping in the coming months it will grow even more.  Please also keep and eye on this blog as we not only mention our own workshops but those of other mediums and teachers,  I also hasten to add we will have an exciting programme at the Rainbow Healing Sanctuary with mediums such as Michael Redwin, Bruce Bayley, Alan Albiston,  Les and Jacci Fuller as well as ourselves of course.  The workshops will start on the 23rd of February with Alan Albiston. Please remember we are available for workshops, readings and of course church services.  Lastly I want to mention our new gnome as you can see from the picture these Nordic Gnomes are rather cute and along with our magical poppets they are for sale.  Prices start at £10 plus postage and you can ask for the colour you want with the poppets.  The gnome as you see are for sale as they are. 
Today I was communicating with someone by text and she was talking about putting people into balloons.  It is something I recommend if you are trying to rid yourself from someone in your life.  No revenge and certainly never do what we heard of once from a lady whom one would think butter wouldn't have melted in her life.  I add she was a healer and together with her companion they mentally  put someone they were having a dispute with into a black balloon sailed it off then popped it.  Not a good thing.  I suggest you put them into a pink balloon and sail them off surrounded by pink unconditional love with blessings.  Repeat this exercise and they will vanish out of you life.  I must stop reading Lucya Starza's blog (http://www.badwitch.co.uk) ( as I get too many good ideas) and I too am now heading for the shop where she bought the board game and will certainly make a list of things I want to achieve this year and will be posting it.  Thank you Wendy Stokes for drawing our attention to it.  As I said we have poppets and naughty Nordic Gnomes at the moment.  Please contact us on  YourCreativeSelf@outlook.com or 07927 288904.  More news next time of our new group on facebook and the Spiritual Rainbow in Coventry.

Beast From the East


Lets hope they are wrong about the Beast from the East as it is too cold for me now.  I must admit its nice to have the sunshine through the window, but I am pleased I am not outside.  I have seen a very interesting workshop at Hitchin and if the weather holds we will look forward to going to it.  It called a Creative Day Working with Flower and combines making an arrangement of flowers with floral  clairsentience with aura readings.  It being held at Hitchin Spiritualist Church.  We are really drawn to it so we are hoping the weather holds so we can get to it as we will have to leave pretty early to get there.  No doubt if we are meant to be there it will be possible. It is at times like this I wish I could drive,  I hasten to add we have lots of new ideas ourselves for workshops and have also started a new group on facebook as our motto for the year is sharing is caring.  It had now grown to 92 and we are hoping it will be at least 100 by the weekend.  We are also looking forward to Jack Gale's talk at Wicca Moon on the 10th February and will be reiterating the details nearer the event (www.wiccamoon.co.uk)   Our circles at Woodford Spiritualist Church recommence on the 8th January at 7.30, but we will be at the church well before this.  There are also lots of interesting workshops during the year at Woodford Church as well as circle run not only by ourselves but with Brenda HodgsonJohn Jenkins and Sharon Law.  I might also add that there are readings available on Wednesdays with Stephanie Barrows and I think angel readings with Brenda Hodgson (www.woodfordchurch.com). We are also available for telephone readings as well as workshops and services.  We can be contacted on rainbowhealingsanctuary@outlook.com or by text or mobile on 07927 288904.  We are also still creating knitted and crochet items for sale.  The proceeds of the sales go towards establishing our own sanctuary.  Our poppets are particularly popular and we are hoping our Nordic Gnomes will be too.

Happy New Year


I would like to wish our students and readers a very Happy New Year which is peaceful, healthy, full of abundance and blessings.  We are really looking forward to putting into operation our latest plans and especially facilitating some new workshops.  Most I am sure will agree that 2018 has not been one of the most fruitful years and many people have had problems including health issues and finance.  I am thank the universe for the lessons learnt and waving goodbye with a few good memories.  We have no bookings until the middle of February 2019 as I am very aware that the weather can be difficult to predict and we had cancelling bookings. Nevertheless I know my record on icy stretches isn't good.  We have however got our circles starting on the 8th January at Woodford Spiritualist Church (www.woodforchurch.com) so hopefully Frau Holda will let us at least start the New Year on an ice free note (see website for full details). I believe that week John Jenkin, Brenda Hodgson and Sharon Law recommence their circles.
I would also like to draw your a attention to an event at Wicca Moon in Eltham with Jack Gale (http://www.wiccamoon.co.uk). We are now looking forward to Jack's evening on the 10th January  and  you can let your imagination take you where you will as the title of the evening is " Dark Tales for the Dark Nights with the Dark Lord".  If you have never been to a talk with Jack then I can assure you that you have a treat in store as he is a very knowledgeable man (including the fairy realms Sharon Law).  It starts at 7 pm until 8.30 pm.  Cost just £5 which includes refreshments. 
As I have already said we have a number of new ideas for workshops and we are looking forward to bringing them to fruition. 
We are also available for readings, services and workshops.  I am still knitting and crocheting for spirit and you can see one of our new gnomes below.  A lovely nisse tomte gnome pattern which I got from http,://littletotzdesigns.etsy.com plus of course our poppets.  Please contact me for details on any of these on 07927 288904 or rainbowhealingsanctuary@outlook.com

Dark Tales for the Dark Nights


We hope you all had a nice Christmas and an enjoyable Boxing Day.  We have we blessed so far with not having snow.  Although I admit it is quite magical if you are in a nice country setting, but in London or the fringes as it  turns to slush and then becomes an ice rink.  Quite dangerous too.  We have no bookings until the middle of February 2019 as I am very careful when there is ice about.  We have however got our circles starting on the 8th January at Woodford Spiritualist Church (www.woodforchurch.com) so hopefully Frau Holda will let us at least start the New Year on an ice free note (see website for full details).  We would like to draw your attention to an event at Wicca Moon in Eltham with Jack Gale (http://www.wiccamoon.org.uk). We are now looking forward to Jack's evening on the 10th January  and  you can let your imagination take you where you will as the title of the evening is " Dark Tales for the Dark Nights with the Dark Lord".  If you have never been to a talk with Jack then I can assure you that you have a treat in store as he is a very knowledgeable man (including the fairy realms Sharon Law).  It starts at 7 pm until 8.30 pm.  Cost just £5 which includes refreshments and maybe some mulled wine which would go down a treat speaking on behalf of myself.  I would also like to recommend an interesting visualisation, which can be found on Lucya Starza's blog  http://www.badwitch.co.uk.  She is also responsible for the poppet pattern I have been knitting recently and if you want one they are only £10 plus postage (see pictures below).  Early in the New Year watch out for naughty nisse and tomte gnomes, which I am in the process of knitting at this present time.  All profits go to helping us run the Rainbow Healing Sanctuary and please remember we are available for services, readings as well as workshops.  For more information please contact us on 07927 288904 as well as our email rainbowhealingsanctuary@outlook.com

"We all come in different shapes and hues,
  What colour are you?
  Is your Shade one of Service
  Or are you flushed in loyalty, integrity and commitment
  Do you have the drive and patience to deal with everyone you confront
  Know that you do
  Know that you will
  Because your intrinsic beliefs sure that your spiritual service is constant and true
  It maybe alien for some that such different character personify the same attributes
  But this is always made possible, but our very strong spiritual faith."
