I suddenly realised today with all the chaos in the world right now, that I hadn't done a blog post in months, so here goes!

Lockdown meant how I worked in The Witches Hideaway had to change, so I stepped in to teaching and reading online. I approached it with a degree of caution as I wasn't sure how it would go really, but it actually worked out brilliantly and as such I've been able to expand what I do to many other parts of the country, meaning I've been a very busy Witch.

While we were able to and in accordance with government guidelines, my Husband and I managed to squeeze a trip to Buxton in to visit my dear friends Flavia Kate Peters and Barbara Meiklejohn-Free in their incredible shop, Arnemtia's - The Purple Shop. Wow what a treat for us both. Such a magickal place full of the most magickal products. I had a blast buying LOTS of wonderful new things for The Witches Hideaway lol. It was also my Husband's Birthday so we had a wonderful time relaxing and sampling the culinary delights of Buxton (There was also Prosecco and craft ales, never a bad thing lol).

A few months prior to this trip, Barbara and Flavia had kindly offered to initiate me in to my first degree of Witchcraft. I was absolutely blown away by such a wonderful gesture, as these are both magickal wise women who I love, admire and respect hugely and have done for many years prior to even meeting them. Their work, who they are and what they stand for sings to my heart and soul. The ceremony took place in Arnemtia's which made it even more magickal! Barbara and Flavia have two beautiful cats, and one of them, Anubis, calmly walked in to the circle with me and sat beside me throughout the ceremony, leaning against my leg. Absolutely remarkable and such an honour!

Becoming a Priestess has been an incredible and life changing experience for me and every single day my heart is full of gratitude. Next year I shall be doing my second degree and the year after my third, meaning I shall be a High Priestess then. I am deeply passionate about my craft, it burns through my blood and Barbara said to me at the end of the ceremony, "It's time to wake up the world" and she's SO right. To my fellow Witches, Healers and Light Workers all over the globe, use what you have to show the world a better way of being. Heal our world, our beloved Mother Earth.

So how are you all coping with lockdown where you are? I hope this post has found you all safe and well and making plans for a peaceful and safe Yule with those you hold dear.

Stay safe dear friends, do the right thing.

My love always x

So how's lockdown going for you?

I hope my post finds you all safe and well (only going out when you absolutely have to!) and coping with this new way of life that's been thrust upon us. Anyone feel like they're going crazy yet, or are you finding things to do and occupy your time with?

I've been busying myself with my family at home, catching up on chores and so on and we are also doing lots of catching up with our dear friends and family via video calls, we even meet our fabulous friends from our local in our twice weekly "Virtual Pub" video chat which my dear friend Chris set up for us all. We're taking turns to host quizzes through that which have proved to be great fun and we've even made new friends through it, so pretty good all round!

It seems the desire to learn has still driven people towards The Witches Hideaway and I had so many enquiries about online learning that in the end I purchased myself a Zoom account so I could teach development properly. I'm still doing lots of readings online too and I'm very grateful for the wonderful recommendations I've had which then led to even more readings plus more development work, and of course my eternal gratitude is with my dear ancestors, spirit guides and friends in the spirit world without whose love, support and humour, none of this would be possible.

I must take a moment to thank all of our wonderful frontline workers who are keeping our country going during this terrible time of sadness and fear. You are all incredibly brave souls and our country would grind to a halt without you all. For those who have lost loved ones during this time, my heart grieves for you and I can only hope time brings you some peace and an ease to your grief. I urge you all to abide by the government guidelines and do the right thing, don't take chances!

Stay at home, protect the NHS, save lives.

Until next time, stay safe and use this time we've been given to look after yourself, to learn, to focus on your journey ahead and how you will achieve what you want from life going forward.

My love to you all x

Hi everyone,

Well, what a predicament we are in right now, tragic and worrying times across the world. Firstly, I hope you are abiding by the guidelines given and staying home (where you can) to save lives (apart from necessary trips for supplies).

So what am I up to? Well, my work in The Witches Hideaway has obviously had to stop for the time being, but myself and the members of my Facebook group "The Witches Hideaway" are finding comfort in the isolation by having lots of catch up time in video calls, sharing inspirational posts and generally looking out for one another. It was my 51st Birthday on Sunday, so I had an online party on the Saturday night. Great fun had by all lol. Loads of 80's tunes, all raising a glass and sharing pictures of us with our families. It was such a success they all want another party now lol.

Meet my newest Pendle Witch, Elizabeth. She's one of the bigger ones and so beautiful! She was a Christmas gift from a group of my dear ladies from The Witches Hideaway. I'd spotted her last summer in The Wonky Broomstick, an amazing shop in Glastonbury. I fell in love with her instantly, and my dear Witchy twinny Becca who was with me obviously noticed and so decided to make sure she came home to live in The Witches Hideaway lol.

So, whatever you are doing at the moment, make sure you are looking after yourself! Use the time you find yourselves with to make plans for your future, to read, to look within and go on a journey of self-discovery. Embrace your magick in whatever form it takes. Step in to your power to help yourselves and the world too. Our beloved Mother Earth is having a well earned rest right now and doing her own healing, and I hope we as a nation learn from that.

Much love to you all x
