All About That Energy!
If I were in a fairy-tale, I would be that fairy godmother type, the one who waves a magic wand and grants you what you want.
My wish is to be the genie, the magic potion the leprechaun who delivers your fantabulous perfect life, complete with pots of gold, endless energy and sweet serenity as well as anything else your heart desires.
My own life has been dedicated to having the best time possible, manifesting the stuff of my dreams (without injuring myself or anyone else) finding the easiest ways to make that happen, and to inspiring and guiding other people who want to have the best time possible, too.
To this end I have allowed myself to explore a vast array of interesting, amusing, weird, crazy, glamorous, dubious and glorious activities, practices and modalities…..from angel channelling live on the radio to bashing Johnny Depp with my handbag and from dining with Vivienne Westwood to being buried up to my neck in sand by a Thai nun.
On this website, you will get the benefit of all of my many, many, many years of research and development without your having to get your hands dirty.
The blog is full of incredibly useful advice that I have channelled from the wise, witty and wonderful angels, for all kinds of challenges, problems and conundrums, ranging from what to do if you are addicted to caffeine (and simply cant quit) to what to do if you want to manifest a job or a house or a lover or even a handbag.
Over the years I have interviewed many, many, many hugely fascinating and inspiring people. Some of them are famous for being inspirational, like Deepak Chopra, Paolo Coelho, Eckhart Tolle, Bob Geldof, Byron Katie, Goldie Hawn, and Dadi Janki
Some of them are fascinating because they are hugely famous and successful in their fields and they have often (but not always) made piles of cash in the process….like Van Morrison, JP Donleavy, Jilly Cooper, Jeremy Irons, Barbara Taylor Bradford, Pete Doherty and many more.
Some of them are inspiring because they have had to overcome enormous challenges in their lives, and they can show us ways to handle those same challenges if they arise in our lives, or at least they can show us that it is possible to overcome those challenges.
Some of them are inspiring just because they have achieved their dreams and they are living awesome, happy lives and they can show us that this is possible!
Some of them combine all four attributes and they can really blow your mind. Either way, they all make for entertaining reading.

Just must say how great it feels to have discovered how great it feels to just lie on a mat and breathe and stretch a bit! The joy of doing yoga that is not about hard work and building muscle and sweat and strain, but is just pure bliss! No rules, no sanskrit names, no way you can get the alignment wrong, no chattaranga or plank…yoga that is as nice as ice cream on a hot day. Slowwwga? Click the icon for more. Namaste Bitches x
‘Victoria seems almost disappointingly normal and pleasant. She outlined my current, rather pitiful state of mind, and she was so accurate I found myself holding my breath. There were no false promises, if you are looking for sneak previews of tall, dark strangers traveling over water, or any of the usual, you’ll be coming away empty-handed. Instead, it was more of an incredibly intense advice or counseling session, but one that was steeped in compassion, and had its basis in universal truths. Really, you had to be there. Because the change she wrought on me was due to much more than the effect of mere words. As I left I had no idea whether I really had been in conversation with my own personal angels, but I didn’t care. I remembered all the good things I’d already known but had managed to forget and I felt better than I had in ages-safe and cherished, restored to myself: happy to be the person living my life.
~ Marian Keyes, from ‘Under the Duvet’
THE ANGELS REJOICED LAST NIGHT
A book about angels may cause some to raise a cynical eyebrow but this book avoids any kind of obvious pigeonhole. In fact it details Victoria Clarke’s journey of self discovery: from her lowest moments and learning through her mistakes with these non interfering beings that gently guide her in the right direction to where her self confidence is rebuilt. This book is self affirming – the books tone is both self depreciating and warm as is Victoria herself. Although that character Ronan seems a bit of a scoundrel. A great read!Rebecca Guinness

So there’s something you want?
Maybe you know what it is…
…Maybe you don’t know
Maybe it is something very clear cut and easy to name, like a new house, a new job, a new car, a fitter body, more energy, more fun, a finished novel/screenplay/painting, a pair of Louboutins.
Maybe the something that you want is less tangible…a sense of purpose, more meaning and fulfilment in your work or relationships, more harmony in your family life, more enthusiasm for life…better taste in music.
