Erica Longdon interview

Erica Longdon is an author, multi-disciplinary therapist, healer and metaphysician.
Her toolbox of qualifications contains: massage, reiki mastership, ear candling, psychology, sound healing,  meditation instruction, angel oracle card and tarot reading.
Erica's career began in television and radio in the nineteen seventies and took her all over the world to witness international events and eye-opening scenes behind the headlines. Erica says:  "it taught me to look beyond the obvious and to seek authenticity and to question." During the nineties, a serious car accident jolted her onto a path of personal growth and healing which, ultimately, lead to a release of her media career and embracing a path as a therapist. A major, life changing part of this journey was becoming an Angel Therapy Practitioner after training in Hawaii with Doreen Virtue.

Interview with Heather Kropf

I would like to introduce my readers to Heather Kropf who is a singer/songwriter who has self-produced 4 full-length albums, spanning over 17 years: Sky (2000), What Else is Love (2005), Hestia (2008), and Chrysalis (2014) and her latest, Lights (2017). I enjoy Heather’s music. Her voice is gentle, her words meaningful, and the music warming, light and melodic.

Heather was trained in classical piano but she approach songwriting from an intuitive, unschooled perspective and tends to get her ideas from something she hears or learns in her environment and then she plays with it until a song emerges.

Getting to Know the Goddess Course 1:2

The Goddess-Pages online course: The Goddess Remembers: I feel uncomfortable about the word 'universe', used when other words would be more appropriate. I especially dislike the expression 'the Universe will provide', because the universe might be unlimited, but our beleagured, unique and self supportive planet is finite and in extreme danger due to overpopulation by human beings. The more humans, the fewer of every other species, bar the ones that human beings use for their own ends. Some people have chosen to re-write the English language to manipulate and exploit and I resent it! The universe is full of dark matter. It has a black hole at the centre of our solar system. None of this will provide anything that we can currently use.

Spiritual Cinema Club Review

This club is endorsed by reputable spiritual teachers, such as Bruce Lipton, the late Dr Wayne Dyer, James Twyman, Neale Donald Walsch - to name a few. It supplies films that rarely reach the general public but are ideal for those who like to watch a DVD at home with friends and family. Most of the films this organisation provides are suitable for the entire family and are often educational and always uplifting, meaningful and inspirational. The organisation requests a monthly subscription and I have heard their choice referred to as ‘film therapy’.

Cornwall - A Visit

St Just Well
Wild moorlands and magnificent coastlines of Cornwall have inspired artists and writers to visit this beautiful rural county but there is further wonder and magic that makes it ideal for channelling energies of angels and ascended masters. 

When hordes of invaders, Angles, Saxons, Vikings, Jutes, and others, arrived from the Continent, the indigenous Celtic people were driven to outlying lands, to Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Cornwall. In these Celtic places we have traditions handed down the generations by the Druids, famed throughout the ancient world for poetry and storytelling, their love of family ties and their knowledge of the law.

Getting to know the Goddess Course 4:1

The Crone
This is a suitable archetype for me, as I am in the last years of my life. I am sure there were wise women of older years throughout all time who guided the younger women. There were also those who were distressed by difficult circumstances, perhaps lonely or not financially or emotionally coping in times gone by,mas there still are today. It is not just young women who need guidance and counselling but those who feel that society has left them behind and has no further interest in them.

Keridwen (has part of my name included in hers) is the example provided by the course and her mysterious myths leave me puzzled as to their possible meanings. A cauldron of nourishment, a pot for hot soups and stews, this is still my favourite dish. It could be a symbol of a woman's pregnancy, or of a pot of plenty of any kind, of riches, resources, a family united together, a progressive society, a world of caring, beauty and wellbeing for all people and other species.

The Crone is a prophetess, presumably she has witnessed much in her past, and can see patterns that will inform the future. I feel frightened for the future, that wars will bring division and pain for generations. I feel fir those most vulnerable, as they are always the greatest victims. I feel for other species who have as much right to live in peacevas we all have. I think the Crone should be champion of the planet, of protecting all species and those people across the world most in need.

She is also a shapeshifter. I have never fully known what this involves, I hope not being a good actress, but a person who can turn their hand to many skills, to cook, sew, play a musical instrument perhaps, make people laugh, etc.

We approach the time of All Hallows, when hags and others represent the time of death and the Afterlife. For me it is a sacred time. I loathe the trick or treaters on our streets. On my altar, I have fallen leaves and acorns that form a carpet for the candle that shines a light in the emerging winter months and on any darkness or ignorance that might blight my path. I have apples and pears and plums in my cauldron that will make a fruit compote to add to my daily breakfast cereal.

I read a book that said that the Trojan War took place in East Anglia, in the UK. It is titled 'Where Troy Once Stood'. 

Helen, or Elen, is sometimes referred to as the Goddess of London, and of ley lines and other ancient paths of Britain, such as Deer trods. She is also known as Elen of the Ways.  Helen is said to have been a real woman, mother of Constantine the Great, who built the first Christian church in Britain in London. I didn't know there was a basket called a Helene. How interesting! I love basketry and have a great collection made by other people from across the world. I love them because they are hand made, often by women who need the work to support their family, because they show the beauty of this ancient craft, because they are often colourful, with great variety, and because they are biodegradable, unlike plastic bags or animal skin, which causes suffering.
