Connection Chronicle 75 - Celebrate life

Happy Solstice!

I LOVE the energy of the Summer Solstice, and the way it always offers a stop point in the middle of the year. Your energy always follows where you put your attention and the Midsummer invites us all to put our attention on celebrating life.

Celebrating abundance Celebrating love Celebrating community Celebrating the precious connections in your life.

These connections are the ones you have into your depth, into your longings and your joys, into your dreams, into the deep nourishments that will sustain you through the long days of winter. The precious connections you have with the world around you, the humans, the animals world, the natural world, the stars, moon, sun and planets. The summer solstice invites you to give attention to your connectiveness into the immense web of life that each of us have the mindblowing privilege of belonging to.


This picture is of my breakfast celebration feast this morning, a childhood family favourite of Eggy Poke Poke, which you may know as a soft boiled egg with toast that you dip in! So simple, and yet, it is how I break my fast on any celebration day.

I wish for you today is that you get even just a glimpse of how truly magnificent you are,

With love, Prune

Connection Chronicle 74 - The joy of feeling nourished

Take a minute. Right now. You can even time yourself if you really can only afford one minute in your day.

Use this minute to look around at your internal world and your external world and notice what is actively nourishing you and your soul?

Here I go with my noticing; The heat of the sun The sparrow chatter around me as I write The cup of nettle tea beside me The grass beneath my feet The dry rich earth beneath that grass The clouds The space around me with its warm air and aliveness The sound of a drum talking to the trees Bees loving the flowers Being on sacred retreat with wonderful people

And now it is the end of the one minute of attention and my energy is changed because of it. If you do it you’ll be more grounded, more connected, and more joyous.

With love, Prune

Connection Chronicle 73 - Sacred connection with the land

One of the wonderful things about being on holiday, is being able to deeply engage in creativity. I am so lucky, as I get to be creative in my every day life and my work. And yet there is something different about being with the land and being creative with my hands.

Walking through the fells and valleys here in the Lake District there is the amazing continual bounty of sheep fleece. As I walk I collect the sometimes tiny, and sometimes handful, of fleece offerings and then I get creative with a felting needle.

In honour of the sheep that have given the wool, my first little figure today (as I sat in the sun with the lake and the mountains all around) was Goldilocks the Sheep!!!

The second, as I listened to the Spirit of the lake, was a tiny being in a cradle. It is my habit to make these little land guardians and then offer them back to the land.

At sunset tonight I will place the Being in the Cradle into the lake with prayers of gratitude and blessings to the land.

Goldilocks the Sheep will be left in a place where I hope someone will find her and be charmed by her craziness. Whether that happens or not, she was the work of creative love as I sat in the sun with my daughter in the peace and magnificence of today.

With love to you and your sacred creativity, Prune

Connection Chronicles 72 - The spirit of generosity

Every land, every place has its own unique energy. You may experience this as a feeling, as just a sense of knowing something about that area. You may perceive it as an emotion, or you may identify that the people from that area tend to have specific character traits or ways of being.

Those character traits are formed from the energy of the land they live in, the energy of the land that they’re from.
