‘You are not accidental-existence needs you.
Without you something will be missing in existence and nobody can replace it.
That’s what gives you dignity, that the whole existence will miss you-the stars, the sun and the moon, the trees and the birds and the earth-everything in the universe will feel a small place is vacant which can not be filled by anyone else but you.
This gives you tremendous joy, a fulfillment that you are related to existence, and existence cares for you. Once you are clean and clear you can see tremendous love falling on you from all dimensions. (Osho)
When we let go of the old experiences and have gratitude for the lessons they have taught us, then we are able to allow new, fresh growth to come in.
The time has come for me to change the focus of my work.
For many years now I have been working in education promoting health and wellbeing in schools, and have been doing coaching in addition to that work.
Now I have decided to put all of my energies into my coaching practice – this is where my heart lies. I’m following my bliss!
I had no idea of what I wanted to put on my collage for this year. It had taken me ages to get round to doing it – it never seemed to be the ‘right time’ and I hadn’t got a definite trajectory I wanted to follow.
‘Practice what you preach’ my spirit whispered- ‘just start and see what comes’.
I got out old Xmas and birthday cards and started to pick ones I was drawn to – and then went on to the magazine images and words. It all happened exactly as it should – I relaxed – tore out the images and words that I was drawn to and put them together on card and here is the result .
It was a surprise to my conscious mind – so much green and gardens and flowers and magic- peace and light and unfolding power. I’m getting to know what my essence wants and working with it without the boundaries of the monkey mind – who knows what will unfold- exciting!
Come to one of our youcan2 days and try it out for yourself – it’s powerful, quiet and revealing. Treat yourself to a pamper day for the spirit and see where it takes you.
‘I joined Jan for a weekend retreat in her serene home at a time when I was feeling particularly vulnerable and in many ways emotionally stuck; I felt that the personal relationships I had chosen had invited chaos into my life. I was in need of intuitive guidance, a confidante and a friend with the experience to guide me towards a more conscious way of living.
Jan provided all these things, as well as the tools to identify my unique talents and a clear path to set about creating a life with a deeper, clearer purpose. Jan’s wealth of knowledge and training underpins her practice; it is her compassion and generous spirit that creates a safe space where issues and struggles can be worked through comfortably.
Since our retreat I have had more focus, drive, clarity, more creative energy and a sense of urgency to get the real work in my life done. Furthermore, Jan’s nurturing energy has taught me a great deal about self-care, mindfulness and realising the wonder in each moment and each breath. These are life-affirming skills I will take with me always.
I feel honoured to have spent time with such a generous and experienced mentor and can’t recommend her services highly enough. I believe we owe it to ourselves and the world to be the best we can be; Jan helps to unlock our innate potential.’

I was plodging by the sea today, and revelling in the warmth (yes, warmth in the north sea!) and the feeling of the silvery water on my feet and sand between my toes – bliss- I watched the dogs careering headlong into the water splashing away and the nursery children sreaming in mock terror and excitement jumping over the waves.
Simple pleasures that fill your soul with joy – savouring the beauty of the patterns on the sand, the seaweed in its splendour of lime greens and deep reds gliding serenely in the crystal clear waters-the reflections of the clouds and sky on the wet sand.
This is my heaven when I choose to appreciate it.
