I'm excited. Y'see, I'm noticing a shift and g-friends, I like it.
While the hippy image of spirituality may remain in some circles, a plethora of up-and-coming women are giving ancient spiritual practices and beliefs a truly modern twist. Just look at my gorgeous gal-pals Alice Grist, Goddess Leonie and Stephanie Brookes, or the awesomeness that is Kay Gillard, or my brand-new girl-crush: Dianne Sylvan - spiritual girls with Sass.
Until recently, for most, the term spirituality conjured up images of floaty, tie-dye clothing, a diet of nuts and beans and people sitting crossed legged chanting om, but now, spirituality has gone a li'l more mainstream. Why? Because women especially, are finding that the things that usually make us feel better, like shopping, new shoes, a fab lipstick, or amazing sex aren’t quite hitting the spot and we’re now looking for the kind of spirit that’s not in the bottom of a cocktail glass.
That’s not to say that we don’t still want those things, far from it, we’ve just realised that there’s a little more to life than just that.
Does this sound like you? If so, you’re not alone.
Thousands of people are now reaching out for something else, something that will compliment and transform their lifestyle. We’ve been so caught up with the mundane of our day-to-day lives, that we’ve had precious little time to feed our souls and now our inner selves are in desperate need of spiritual nourishment.
Although as a tarot reader, healer and life coach AND a lover of all things gorgeous and sparkly, I struggled with this concept for a while. I study tarot, psychometry, divination, EFT, reiki and astrology, but while I love studying the stars, I also want to read about the celebrity star form in magazines, I never miss an episode o' Strictly Come Dancing or X Factor and I really, really want to wear my gorgeous Vivienne Westwood heels as often as possible, even if it's just to the local newsagent.
Does that make me any less spiritual? No.
Does that make me any less skilled at coaching clients or reading tarot? Hell to the no.
Can a trip to the Vivienne Westwood store be a spiritual event all of its own? Abso-freakin'-lutely.
I've encountered a li'l bit of, shall we say, 'negativity' about how I roll, but guess what? What other people think is none o' my business. I'm a powerful, spiritual business woman who rocks a pair o' heels, loves pretty shiny things and watches obscene amounts o ' reality TV, and I make no apologies for that. In fact, while we're at it, I'll let you into a li'l secret, I also watch Emmerdale. Whatcha gonna do?!
