The Point of No Return

The Point of No Return

We are well into the house refurbishment now. Walls are demolished, floor ripped up, 200 tonnes of soil removed for new parking area and piles driven 6 metres into the ground to support the new 1st floor extension where it meets the garden.

So, we cannot go back. We are temporarily in rented accommodation until the end of Spring and will then spend Summer in our motorhome. We are well passed the point of no return and have no option but complete the build.

For some this would be a scary place to be. Apart from anything, there’s a considerable amount of investment required and the classic wanting to be back in before the winter sets in.

Lady Luck however seems to be on our side. The short term rental property was an amazing stroke of luck. There are not many places available that are happy to have two dogs and where you can park a motorhome and two cars.

Our builders seem to know what they are doing and are hitting all the deadlines. Problems like getting steels past high voltage overhead electricity lines are being dealt with.

Going passed the point of no return needs more than having deep enough pockets and a large amount of patience. It requires that we trust. This is not trust in a our main contractor or the plumber. It is about trusting the Universe that all of this is part of a bigger plan. This is the karmic plan we signed up for before incarnating. Demolishing and rebuilding a house that is more energy efficient is only of any worth if living in such a place means even more of the karmic plan can be fulfilled.

Part of this is the wisdom and higher perspective that is gained by upsetting the apple cart, living in a new place and meeting new people. Having temporarily decimated a home, it means our place of bliss has been removed. When we eventually get back in, we will appreciate it even more.

In the meantime, in the limbo place from which we cannot go backwards, much adventure can be had. We have a moho and plan to use it. For example, we are a stone’s throw from Stonehenge and have discovered we can park there for free overnight and see the sun rise over the stones.

So what is the real point of ‘the point of no return’?

It is when the realisation dawns that going back and regressing to old ways and patterns serves no purpose. The learnings are not forgotten but embraced, appreciated and integrated. This opens the door to new potentialities and possibilities.

When a new sun comes up, a new day begins, the past becomes a thing of the past and we rise to a bright new future … to help with the ‘returning’ process, treat yourself to an hour of reflection listening to my longest guided meditation, The Paths of Return.

A Time for Refurbishment

A Time for Refurbishment

The Cube of OverstandingIt always amuses me how life emulates art, and vice versa.

Artistically right now, I am taking an old structure and giving it a makeover. Well over 12 years ago, I created the Cube of Karma, inspired by the ancient glyph of the Cube of Space. Since January this year, I have dusted it off and it’s being given a new lease of life – with new features and a new outlook. I am realising that I have only just touched on its potential as a tool for human enlightenment and spiritual evolution.

At the same time, I have ditched the old subscription model, simplified my e-commerce and CRM systems and it is now available for a one-off investment. 

Find out more details on my home page …

I’ve done the same with all my Soulwaves materials – a project I will revisit and augment in 2024.

Here’s where to get the Soulwaves package …

Life-wise, our tired 1960s bungalow has now been stripped back to a shell.

This is a precursor to completely sealing it as an airtight box so it can become a low-energy eco-home. Bizarrely, or not, it looks like our 1st eco-home is being sold too which very conveniently funds the ‘eco-isation’ of the current house – a kind of ‘house karma’.

Externally to this art-life duality, Insight Timer are expanding the scope of their premium offering which means I can at last upload loads of long-format material. I have been asking them to do since I became a guide on the app back in 2016. This allows me to downsize on my own off-app hosting of materials. In turn, this means I can narrow my focus and produce more with less time and at reduced expenditure.

Here’s just a sample from my archive which awaiting publication once the feature is released – which is imminent.

Moving Times

The AdytumThis New Moon augurs in several new moves.

The most impactful on the surface is moving out of our new home into rental so that it can be made into an energy efficient eco-home. So this week is packing and transition.

We are lucky, or have made our luck, that the builder who walked into our world has a property only 30 minutes drive away that we can rent short term. It’s got a nicely fenced off garden for the dogs and parking for our moho at the front of the house.

We’ve got at least three months guaranteed on the rental, potentially then some moho adventures but then the option of living back on site in the moho for 1st and 2nd fix.

Now this might sound like enough to be getting on with this year but it’s really a background project while the ‘real work’ is going on.

The Cube of Overstanding

This New Moon sees the delivery of the second module in a 12 moonth series of awakenings based around the Cube of Space. It’s been something I have sat on for over a decade, if not several life times. Needless to say, I am both excited and in a little trepidation about what will unfold. 

This is the real work in hand and in progress!

It offers the most amazing ability to help people evolve to a new level of consciousness which augurs in a new way of being for individuals and humanity as a whole. Bearing in mind too that this triggers and upgrade to the whole biosphere and even the consciousness of Mother Earth.

Is this too fanciful a postulation? Is is the ramblings of someone who has lost their marbles? Or are you intrigued enough to dive in?

Join Me Live

On the last Friday of each month, I am hosting a free meditalk on Insight Timer Live. The next one is all about the Twelve Councillors of the Light and is on Friday 24th Feb at 2pm UK Time.

On and around the 3rd Moon Quarter of each moonth, I am also hosting a live coaching and mentoring session for those walking, or thinking of walking, the Path to Overstanding with me – register here


The Next Orbit of the Sun

The Next Orbit of the Sun

SeasonsAnother Turn of the Wheel

It’s fair to say the last three orbits of the Sun have been interesting for humanity. We’ve had two years of global pandemic and a year where the prospect of WW111 has raised its head. In the UK, we’ve seen the worst excesses of an incompetent and corrupt so-called government play out.

Of course, while all this doom and gloom might sound terrible and as if the world is about to end, we should realise that cosmic forces are playing out and influencing affairs on our planet.

While some of the world is in turmoil, it has also shown the best side of humanity. In all probability, the UK Tory government has engineered its own oblivion. Regime change will see an end to hostility between Russia and Ukraine. Do not forget of course other areas of tension and conflict too. The threat of global climate change being one of them.

So what can we do as individuals to help turn the tide. Well, my mission to help get the whole world meditating, one person at a time – with the help of Insight Timer, continues.

With this in mind, I have a whole year of meditations, ambience and courses planned for release, as we orbit our home star once more. There will be at least one new meditation and one new ambient track available to listen to free each month. I also plan to release at least three new courses, one every three months, which are available to Insight Timer Premium subscribers.

By way of example, just this month, I’ve published these already …

I am also extending the materials for the Path to Overstanding. This year we will be exploring a glyph called the Cube of Space – it is like a software upgrade for the soul and some even call it “a death-less reincarnation”.

Note there is no fear-based New Year sale, just maintenance of last year’s prices. It is mindfully and soulfully designed to be an investment affordable to as many people as possible at less than the price of a takeaway pizza a month. This year it will include live ‘moonthly’ group mentoring sessions for those walking the Path or considering embarking upon it – they are called Uberstandings.

Note that you can also take the first step on the Path to Overstanding for free.

Talking of extensions, we are also extending our house and, at the same time making, it as eco-friendly as possible. While doing this is of course introspective, we also want to share our experience of how to restore old, tired, mouldy and cold housing stock.

So this year’s blogs will document my journey and include a mix of how the house refurbishment is going along and an update on progress on the ongoing construction of my metaphorical ‘house of enlightenment’.

I guess I have literally become a builder of the new Adytum – which is one reason I had to unsubscribe as a student of BOTA so I would not plagiarise their materials. My aim remains the same – to take what has been made esoteric (and difficult to understand) and make it exoteric (both accessible and practical in its application).

Onwards and Upwards …

The Path to Overstanding 2023

Would you like a ‘taster’ of the Flavours?

I understand that it can be tricky to get your head around what is esoteric – it is unknowable after all.

So, if you’d like to have a sneak peek at the wonders on offer along The Path to Overstanding, you can listen to the first Soundcast, Flavours of Thought, completely for free.

It contains 33 short tracks which will change the way you think about your thoughts, forever!

Do Dogs Reincarnate?

Do Dogs Reincarnate?


RIP Reuben

At the start of this year, we had to say goodbye to our labradoodle Reuben. At 15, his legs gave up on him and we did the thing that all dog owners dread. I was with him as we let him go and told him that we’d see him again soon.

He was a rescue dog who hadn‘t been treated that well. As a result, he was timid but very affectionate and, like all dogs, a little naughty from time to time. He moved silently and stole socks and underwear, attracted by the smell no doubt. He would always be a step or two behind on a walk, leaving the introduction to other dogs to one of his braver companions like Wellington or more latterly, Millie.

For the last 10 months, Millie has enjoyed being the sole centre of attention. We are planning a major house renovation next year and living in our motorhome for nine months or so. So having one, well trained dog seemed like a good idea.

The Universe and soul of Reuben obviously had other plans. My better half wasn’t seriously looking but had an alert out for small, black, male labradoodles. These are Millie’s favourites as she can boss them around.

When a dog reincarnates, as for humans, it knows its soul path and what it wants in life and what it wants to learn. So Reuben liked us and our home and wanted to come back to be brave and adventurous. He’d had enough of being mistreated and had much to give.

So, six months ago, he came back as the progeny of a female golden retriever and small male poodle. This would guarantee he would be the right size to be Millie’s companion again. He even came back with the name of Lucifer, the light shower and change bringer, to make a point. We thought Pickle was a safer name to shout as we walk him past the local church.


Welcome Pickle

His first homing wasn’t right so he managed to nudge the mind of his owner to put him up for rescue. He ended up in a caring home but his new doggie companion was nervous about living with such a ball of energy, so he was put up again for rehoming.

This time, he hit the jackpot. His owner from his previous life spotted him and within a few days, he ended up where he planned to be all along. Dogs know a thing or two.

He slotted straight in and relaxed straight away. He learned that a grumble from Millie was a nudge to back off. He worked out how to wrap his new owners around his paws and do his every bidding. He had come home and was looking forward to another life of adventure and experience.
