"Playing With Light

We are a flame you see.

A light.

Come with me awhile and listen.

You need matches, a bit of air.

Strike, make fire, a gift we have.

The flame flickers.

Our heart beats.

We can do much more than make a flame dance.

We can create.

Make beauty.

We can destroy, with one blow.

This flame that dances within.

This body.

This mind, heart & soul.

Look carefully now, go deep.

What makes it dance with joy?

Glowing, bright & beautiful.

Light up the world."

Julie Ivison

Everyone of us has a choice in life.

To be happy or not?

No matter what happened in our past, no matter what happened 10 minutes ago, no matter our health.

There is light - peace, love, joy, compassion, warmth.

There is dark - anger, hate, grief, anxiety, cold.

If you hold a ball in each hand.

One is light and sparkling

One is dark with suffering.

Which will you use to spin and play with.

The light ball takes you up, maybe there is heaven here on earth.

The dark ball takes you down, to the hell of suffering.

Learning  to realise which game you are playing is easy, how are you feeling?

Most of us play with light and dark.

Sometimes we can't avoid the dark ball.

But we have two hands ❤

Often we are passed a ball, if it's light, let it bring you joy.

Please pass it around.

If it's dark - Drop it. 

What games do you play with others?

If you want to suffer, it's easy.

There's always a reason.

Keep walking towards the sunshine but remember we need the dark to experience the light.

Perhaps this is enlightenment?

"The way I am right now is of my making.

The way I will be tomorrow will also be of my making.

This is karma

This is the most dynamic way to exist."


There's no end to learning......

It's time to start the classes again.

Which ones do you need?

Learn more each time you practice them.

Go deeper, each time.

Become Stronger

More flexible.

Keep your circle growing, spiralling.

Interconnecting with all of life

October 2nd 2022 - My Journal

I was planning for the last 7 weeks of my yoga classes before Christmas

Perfect for a journey through the chakra.

I had so many idea's on what to teach and was feeling a little overwhelmed.

My mind has been busy.

Iv'e been waking at night again.

So I thought...practice your first class. The Gentle/Relaxation Class.

It was so slow and I had to move out of some of the longer holds.

I felt irritable but I stayed and didn't turn the class off. I listened.

I found it difficult!

I'd breathed my irritability away and reconnected with the earth element and base chakra.

I want to stay.

I need this energy again.

I want to practice this class every day!

I'm beginning the course again.

It's my gift to myself.

Everything I feel I am doing to help others.

Helps me the most.

With love Julie

We are all powerful. We all have the choice. To be happy or not?

Yoga & Ayurveda help you remain balanced, your heart wisdom helps you remain balanced so you can see what you are holding in your outstretched hands.

My Journal

6/12/2022 - This course is one of my journals 

The beauty of this course is I am practicing it and learning so much more myself.

I have stayed true to the teachings and made them modern.

I am so grateful for the teachings, the wisdom.

But it is not from my roots.

I was listening to one of Echarts 15 minute talks and afterwards it flicked to an add. They are usually a red flag but I didn't realise I was being drawn into an add!   

So I clicked on the link, paid my money and walked into my Celtic roots. A coincidence that it is my second year and I am back on the Earth Element, belonging, my roots? I don't think so.

It is wonderful to realise it was the women's spiritual teachings that were missing. That is why I was feeling so sad. My great, great, great grandmothers teachings.Not destroyed, not forgotten, but hiding, waiting for the right time.

The energy is very similar with 8 chakra or roses. I am meditating upon "the rose of the heart" at the moment and healing, learning about my dreams, growing the internal garden of my mind. Planting seeds, trees, flowers. My outside environment is beautiful and now I am tending to my heart and spirit. Going deeper, I realise I stepped into the dark the day I taught my first yoga class, during teacher training, after having the most powerful dream, that gave me such much love and peace. I close my eyes and feel connected to everything and I am never sure what I will write or say, the yoga classes were planned, the asana, mudra etc. but the wisdom is heart wisdom and it's not mine, it's yours too. I feel like I have been handed a flame, a key to transforming our lives and my words and classes are the candle reaching over to light yours. Mine is not the only candle, there are thousands of women, teaching in different ways, healing and heart wisdom. You are one of them and if you get a little lost when exploring within, buy a book, start a course. Cry a little more but keep dreaming. I can't believe I am writing this, but 3 dreams have led me to discover more about the women from my roots and I was feeling so sad about leaving the moorlands, leaving England but the course has helped me settle, the python intertwined on a rock overlooking my favourite beach, the wonder and wild helped me feel  Australia as my home again. I don't have to choose between England or Australia, I have family, I have my special places to visit. I can belong in both.

Although I am studying different teachings, I am not walking a different path, I am still practicing the beautiful yoga tradition but I am integrating it into my own. 


This second year. Start a course connected to your ancestors. Grow your roots.

*In Scotland 

Nicola Sturgeon, the first minister of Scotland, apologized on behalf of the government for the killing and vilification of thousands of women accused of witchcraft between the 16th and 18th centuries. Throughout Europe, throughout the world the wise and powerful women, the herbalists, the midwives, the healers, hid or were murdered and the world still weeps for their feminine grace.

I have found the connection to my women, a web, intricate, beautiful, feminine, gentle, graceful.

Go find yours........

The feminine spirit is awakening in you and the world.


Self - Love

By the bridge my mind had settled and a deep peace washed over me. I realised I hadn't felt this for a long time. Maybe the most peaceful I have ever felt.
