The O.E: Finding our higher purpose.

My amazing partner and I find ourselves regularly having deep late night discussions about the world; what's happening in it, what do we want to do about it, and one thing that has popped up for almost years is: that we don't just want to live through life, we want to experience it, we want … Continue reading The O.E: Finding our higher purpose.

Garden banter – Dream come true.

Finally, I have started to germinate  some seeds to begin my first proper vegetable garden, as of yet nothing fancy, which suits me to a tee. Some courgette seeds, spinach, basil to name a few. I never knew how beautiful the seeds of plants could be, how entrancing they can look! The seed of spinach, … Continue reading Garden banter – Dream come true.

Step 1 – What is step 1?

Here's to it; the start of an amazing adventure, finding ways to do our part for this glorious mother earth, to give back all she has given to us. It feels good, finally coming to the realization that this is a path I must take. But where do I start? How do we become an … Continue reading Step 1 – What is step 1?

Thankful Thursday: How to love your mind, body and soul

I have always had a hate/love relationship with myself and my body. I've always been highly inconsistent, extremely critical and self-deprecating, even if it may often seem more inward. It's one thing I've never really enjoyed talking about because it hits a soft spot in the emotional region. I'm trying to constantly reinforce a positive … Continue reading Thankful Thursday: How to love your mind, body and soul

Gratitude 4 – Family

It is no easy task to pinpoint a particular member of my family of whom I am particularly grateful for. Each and everyone has shaped me into this being that I am today,  this mother I am today. I am thankful for my mother, she gave me my loving heart and my fiery passion. My … Continue reading Gratitude 4 – Family

Mindfood – The Current

Wednesday is usually hump day for most people but I am now officially coining it  ‘Midweek Mindfood’ (courtesy of my incredible other half) and what better to start this weekly ritual but to celebrate International women’s day by show casing a very creative and intelligent woman.

I would highly recommend that you head over to my beautiful and highly talented friends incredible blog : METAL AND STONE. Every single piece of writing has such depth and an admirable sense of self-acceptance and awareness. From descriptive gardening to positive mind maps that appear in one of her beautifully raw ‘rampages’.

You’ll leave with a much broader sense of mind and a sense of warmth within your being. Happy International Women’s Day!

Alexa.

METAL AND STONE

Rainfall’s certain magic. How beautiful be that of this world, the gathering and falling of rain from the sky.
Everything cleansed from the fluid infusion that water’s energy brings. Refreshed and renewed.

The light reflection from a tiled surface, slick. Mind your step!

Flowing movement, the pull of gravity calling to collect in a dip most low lying.
So curious, water’s seeking of itself; to join, attract, become magnetised. What better than it, to flood, pool, engulf.

Inresistant. Completely surrendered.

Birthing and sustaining, allowing life to thrive. Adaptive to any and all conditions, never ceasing to exist.

The sound variety -

Rooftop raindrops pattering, crashing and rolling surf.

Gentle trickles, delicate leaky dripping.

Fine spray of mist, tumbling shower.

Boiling bubble, cracking ice.

Sizzle and steam, hastily evaporate.

Many qualities in water, it’s true. Symbolism abounds.

The sorrow of a tear’s roll, the filling of pain to overflow. The soft…

I know you now

We stared into one another, he took everything in about me, and I him. How his hair is growing millimeter but millimetre each day, how inquisitive those once blurred eyes now are seeking my familiar stare and those lips that mirror his father's. I wonder what he see's in me? It's such a precious thing, … Continue reading I know you now
